Author reveals

Not Prime Time 2017 and Prime Time Madness 2017 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. Fics will continue to be spotlighted on the NPT tumblr.

Feedback post will be posted either today or tomorrow.

Madness collection open

The Prime Time Madness 2017 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 14th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

Misc Announcements

The Prime Time Madness 2017 collection will be opened at 10 am Eastern. Any sized fics can be uploaded to this collection with the main collection closed.

If you haven't forward dated and want to, here's some information about it.

I'll also be sharing fic links from the collections to tumblr via the NPT tumblr in order to bring more eyeballs to fics. The spotlight will be random (probably a fic at the beginning of the alphabet and a fic at the end of the alphabet and work my way to the middle from both sides).

Author reveals are July 14th.

Main collection is open

The stories are up and raring to be read at Not Prime Time 2017. 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 2017 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!

Forward Dating

The main collection is currently on time to open on the 11th at 10 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones) as I leave early.

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) once the collection opens/it's already the 11th in your timezone. 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!

Collection opening on the 11th

The main collection is currently on time to open on the 11th at 10 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones) as I leave early.

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2017 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2017 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.

Deadline has past

I came home much, much later than I was expecting, so the deadline has definitely come and gone. If you haven't uploaded your fic by now after a couple of hours of leeway, well. 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.

3 hours until fics are due

Assignments are due on July 3rd at 11:55 pm Eastern time (Compare New York's time to your time), which is a little less than 3 hours from now. 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 obvious placeholders and incomplete fics in the upcoming days. If I find any, expect an email from me.

One week left

There's just one week left until your fics are due into the Not Prime Time 2017 collection. This means your fic is fully uploaded and not a draft. I haven't clicked on anyone's currently uploaded fic and I won't be doing so until after the deadline.

If you're going to default, please do so now instead of later to give pinch hitters more time. However, if you do finish your fic, please feel free to upload it to the collection.

Treats, Updates, and Wonder Woman

Whether or not you're a participant, treats are welcome and encouraged at Not Prime Time! All the requests are located on AO3 or in a txt file. And if you're finding that your treat isn't quite fitting a recipient's requests, then the NPT_Producer has got you covered. Anyone who gifts a fic to NPT_Producer will receive an automated comment. Not Prime Time 2017 collection is available for fics 1k words and above while Prime Time Madness 2017 is available for fics under 1k words and non-fic works such as icons, podfic, art, and more.

There are still two more pinch hits left for claiming. Pinch hit #3 and pinch hit #5.

I've been asked whether it's okay to write fics in Wonder Woman fandom. As Wonder Woman is eligible, I'll allow it whether those fics are gifted to NPT_Producer or as treats to recipients you know would like them (not as assignments though).

Stories are due July 3rd!

About a month until deadline

We're about a month away from our July 3rd deadline when stories are due into the Not Prime Time 2017 collection.

How is everyone doing on their assignments so far?

If you feel like you won't be able to complete your assignment, go ahead and default so we can set up pinch hitters (of course, if you do manage to finish, we'd love it if you uploaded even if we've already found a pinch hitter. The more, the merrier).

For those who want some extra motivation, word wars happen frequently within #yuletide chat (Instructions on how to log in). A word war is where you and other people write for a set amount of time, usually 15 to 20 minutes, to see who wrote the most words. Everyone's a winner.

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 and the collection will go live on July 11th. Prime Time Madness 2017 collection goes live July 12th and accepts treats for fics under 1000 words and non-fic works such as art, icons, podfics, etc.
