This is Not Prime Time's fifth year running. With this year's round at a close, here's an opportunity for you to say know what you liked, what you didn't like, what you'd like to change, etc for next year's round. There's no guarantee everything suggested will be implemented, but everything will be read and thought about. Anonymous commenting is allowed.

Individual comments won't be responded to, though there will be a reply if someone asks a question.

Hiatus Resolution collection is open for both previous participants and non-participants who want to write completed fics over a thousand words. Here is 2016's requests in a txt file. If you don't have a particular person you want to write to, there is always gifting to NPT_Producer.

Not Prime Time 2016 and Prime Time Madness 2016 are officially over and authors have been revealed. You may now respond to your comments if you haven't already done so via anonymous author replies. :)

I'd like to thank everyone who helped make Not Prime Time a success - from the lurkers to the participants and our pinch hitters to the readers and back again. I finally have a break from studying, so today is going to be my day of finally reading fics that weren't my gifts. I'm excited! :D

Feedback post will be posted either today or tomorrow.

The Prime Time Madness 2016 collection is open. You can scroll through all the works and use the sorting buttons to find what you are looking for (by title, date updated, word count, hits - both by highest and lowest, etc). If you are looking for something specific, there is also searching by tags.

Writers, either you can hold off on replying back to comments until after author reveals on July 16th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

The stories are up and raring to be read at Not Prime Time 2016. A very special thank you to our pinch hitters for helping us open on time. If you see some fics unrevealed, give it some time as AO3 does it in batches.

With the main collection open, all treats, no matter the size, are to be uploaded in our Prime Time Madness 2016 collection. This collection opens July 12th.

If you find anything wrong or suspicious in the collection, please email or comment on the post so I can investigate when I get back home later tonight.

Enjoy reading!

The Not Prime Time 2016 collection will open in one hour (9:30 am Eastern). Consider this your hour warning to edit or do any last minute whatever.

The last pinch hit is in and we are on track to open on July 11th at 9:30 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones). I will give an hour warning before the collection is due to open, so if you want to do some last minute editing, you have some time.

Since someone asked me in an email, I'll give the same opportunity to other people. If you have more than one gift waiting for you and you want to know if you were double assigned or if those are treats, you can email to find out which fic is which at notprimetime AT voiceofserenity DOT com.

While the collection is still unrevealed, since these fics are in medium (or bigger) fandoms, chances are those fics won't be on the front page of said fandom. As an option, if you'd like, go ahead and forward date your fic (discretion is advised). This way your fic is on your fandom's front page when the collection opens. Otherwise, when the fics are revealed, it probably won't get any foot traffic from people checking out new fics in the fandom because it'll be a few if not more pages back.

To do this, you'll need to edit your fic and scroll down until you reach the Associations box. Towards the end of that box is a ticky box for "Set a different publication date." Ticky it to set the date to July 10th, July 11th or some other date. Then scroll all the way down to click on Post Without Preview.

Good luck!

There are currently 3 pinch hits out and are due today. I didn't set an exact time, so whenever today. Good luck, pinch hitters!

We are currently on time to open on the 11th. The tentative opening is 9:30 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones). It's an earlier time than previous years, but unfortunately, I leave early for school and that's the latest I can leave it in my time zone on the west coast. If it can't open at that time for whatever reason, it'll have to be pushed back to 2 am Eastern on the 12th because I'll be in the cadaver lab all day into the night.

Let's hope for the early opening! \o/

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2016 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2016 collection. After the main collection opens, any size fics can be placed into the madness collection.

If you are having some difficulty in coming up with tags for your story, here are some questions that might be helpful. Tags are not mandatory and you can take or leave the suggestion below. This is only meant for those who want to tag, but don't know what to tag.

What kind of story is it? (Fluffy, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Character Study, etc)
Is it an AU? (There are several different type of Alternate Universe canonical tags)
Did you write about a threesome? (Specific types of threesome are canonical tags as well as just the regular Threesome tag)
Did you write porn? (There are plenty of canonical tags for various sexual acts)
What kind of relationship do your characters have with each other? (Friendship, Rivals, Siblings, Developing Relationship, etc)
What do your characters do? (There are plenty of canonical tags for events/situations)

If none of these sound like they could fit your story, there is always the option of refreshing the Random Tags page to see what pops up.

I started my grad program yesterday, so please give me some time to answer emails and comments. I gave a quick lookthrough of fics and didn't find obvious placeholders. Yay! There were a few formatting/no space issues in a few fics I found, and plenty who were tagless (tags aren't mandatory, but highly recommended), but there's still time for that.

If you have a draft in the collection, please post it. Drafts can't be read by anyone but you and they do not count as fulfilling your assignment.

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2016 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2016 collection.

Deadline has past (about 30 minutes now) and I've been lightly checking to see who has a fic and who doesn't. I'm about to default those who haven't contacted me and haven't uploaded a fic. If I've made a mistake, let me know. However, pinch hits won't go out until tomorrow, so if you upload between those times, that'd be awesome.

Contiunue editing if you're editing. I'll be actually clicking on fics and checking for obvious placeholders and incomplete fics by the 5th. This includes wikipedia articles, gibberish, [Insert scenes here], works in progress, etc. Expect an email from me if I find them. This doesn't include fics with a lack of header information like tags, titles, or summaries, though I'll email about those closer towards the collection opening if I spot them.

The collection is still open if anyone wants to sneak anything in. There is also the Madness collection for non-fic works and fics under 1k.

Have a happy 4th if you celebrate it/want an excuse to party.

There are about 3 hours left until assignments are due on July 3rd at 11:55 pm Eastern (Compare New York's time to your time). Once the deadline passes, I'll be defaulting open assignments. Pinch hits will come later.

Drafts do not count as completed assignments, so if you have a draft uploaded in the collection, don't forget to post it.

You can continue editing until the collection opens on the 11th (time TBD), but I will be checking for placeholders and incomplete fics in the upcoming days. If I find any, expect an email for me.

We still have one pinch hit if anyone can claim it. This pinch hit is due July 5th.

Regular assignments and pinch hits are due July 3rd, 11:55 pm Eastern time (Compare New York's time to your time) which is a little less than a week away.

Good luck, everyone!

There's a little over a month before stories are due. How is everyone doing with their assignments? If you think you need to default, please do so early.

Whether you're still plotting or writing or haven't begun at all, I will be having word wars in #yuletide all Sunday long (Instructions on how to log in.). Word wars are designated times where you 'race' other people in writing or however you choose, usually for 15 to 20 minutes each war.

NPT_Producer is live. This account is meant for those who have stories that don't quite fit their recipient's wishes or for those people who wanted to write a particular story but had no one to gift it to. The NPT Producer is here for you! The producer, however, is a busy person, so can only thank you for the work, but you are guaranteed that thank you comment.

Stories are due July 3rd.

Requests are now visible. You can view them either on AO3 (where you can sort by fandom, prompter, or date) or a txt file organized by fandom (ctrl + f to find the fandom requests you want).

Prime Time Madness 2016 is open. This is a collection primarily for treats consisting of stories under 1000 words, icons, podfics, vids, etc. If you need us to host a non-fic work, whether temporarily or permanently, please contact us at notprimetime AT voiceofserenity DOT com.

Assignments have been sent out so check your email inboxes (or Spam folders). The deadline for stories is July 3. If you haven't finished writing your letters, please do so as soon as possible to give your writers time to write your story. Keep an eye out for mod emails to the email assigned to the AO3 username you signed up with in case I have to contact you for questions from your writer. If your assignment doesn't include a letter, check out the posts on on LJ | on DW in case they posted there. If there are no optional details/letter after a week assignments have come out, writers have mod approval to write whatever they want, provided the fic matches requested fandom and character(s) (if recipient requests more than one character, the writer has mod approval to use how many requested characters they see fit for the fic, including just one requested character out of the bunch).

Your assigned stories and treats over 1000 words should be uploaded to Not Prime Time 2016. Stories under 1000 words as well as non-fic works should be uploaded in Prime Time Madness 2016.

NPT_Producer is live. This account is meant for those who have stories that don't quite fit their recipient's wishes or for those people who wanted to write a particular story but had no one to gift it to. The NPT Producer is here for you! The producer, however, is a busy person, so can only thank you for the work, but you are guaranteed that thank you comment.

As well, treats can be uploaded early, with or without recipient already tagged if you want to keep the surprise a little longer. We have the list of who is assigned to who. Treats won't randomly become main gifts unless absolutely necessary and we'll ask the treat writer first.

All requests will be revealed when the Madness collection opens for uploading on May 5.

Pinch hits will be run through our npt_admin comms. Initial pinch hits will be posted sometime tomorrow.

If you want to participate in word wars, beta finding, or just someone to chat with, there is always Yuletide's chat #yuletide. Instructions on how to log in.

Good luck, everyone! Stories are due July 3rd.

I am waiting on one more response from those with no potential recipients before I can finish assignments. This person has until May 2nd 11:59 pm, Eastern time to respond before I delete their sign up.

Assignments will go out May 3rd, probably around 3 pm, Eastern time. If you were planning on writing a letter and haven't, there's still time. If your letter is a placeholder and/or locked, you have time to fix that before assignments go out.

Inital pinch hits will be posted a day after assignments go out in the admin comms. I will open requests in both AO3 and txt file format on the 5th.

I was on the road for 10 hours yesterday and I took a shift today where I had to wake up at 5 something am to get ready for it. It's also about to rain cats, dogs, and thunder again, like it has been all day, so I'm not sure about power outages.

Since I'm predicting I'm about to pass out in a few if the soda and cookies don't kick in, I'm going to keep sign ups open until Sunday afternoon, actual time TBD. There will be an hour warning before sign ups close. If you haven't signed up yet, you still have time! If you've already signed up and you haven't finished writing your optional details/letter, now's your chance!
