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.

2017 Requests available on AO3 | in a txt file
Entry tags:

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.

Requests available in a txt file

While requests are revealed on AO3 (where you can sort by fandom, prompter, or date), it is now also available in a txt file organized by fandom (ctrl + f to find the fandom requests you want). Both Not Prime Time 2017 collection and Prime Time Madness 2017 collection are open. The latter collection is primarily for treats consisting of stories under 1000 words, icons, podfics, vids, etc. If you need me to host a non-fic work, whether temporarily or permanently, please contact me at notprimetime AT voiceofserenity DOT com.

Assignments have been sent

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 Dear Prime Time letter post on DW in case they posted there.

Your assigned stories and treats over 1000 words should be uploaded to Not Prime Time 2017. Stories under 1000 words as well as non-fic works should be uploaded in Prime Time Madness 2017.

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. I have the list of who is assigned to who. Treats won't randomly become main gifts unless absolutely necessary and I'll ask the treat writer first.

Requests in a txt file will be posted when the Madness collection opens for uploading on May 5. It's already revealed on AO3.

Pinch hits will be run through the npt_admin comm. 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.

2017 tag set
Dear Prime Time Player letters On DW (optional)

Requests

You can request a minimum of 3, up to 6 fandoms. You may request up to 8 relationships. All fandoms must be unique (cannot be requested more than once).

If you are typing in a nominated relationship, but it is not autofilling, you can copy/paste the relationship name from the tag set onto the sign up form.

Dear Prime Time Player Letter URL: If you want to leave the URL to your Dear Prime Time Player letter, this is the place to do so.

Optional Details: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not. I highly recommend that you add in bare minimum optional details such as likes/dislikes.

Offers

You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 relationships per fandom or offer Any. All fandoms must be unique (cannot be requested more than once).

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive.

If you are typing in a nominated relationship, but it is not autofilling, you can copy/paste the relationship name from the tag set onto the sign up form.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

In regards to crelationship matching, the challenge's Minimum Number to Match is set to 1 Request, 1 Fandom, and 1 Relationship. Matching is based off OR, not AND.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on the 30th. Requests will be revealed halfway through sign ups.

I may have to email participants and I do this through the email associated with your AO3 account. Please make sure to check this email when sign ups close in case I have to contact you about matching. Otherwise I will delete your sign up.

Nominations are now over

Nominations are now over. Corrections will run until Monday, April 18th and sign ups will open on the 19th.

Do you see duplicate relationships? A character in a relationship tag that doesn't belong in a fandom due to traveling bug? Relationships that were nominated/approved but aren't showing up? Discrepancies on fandoms/relationships that were approved? Something else concerning the tag set? Let me know within the comments below so I can fix it.

*Some fandoms will be in two different categories (TV and Books, as an example). That's a wrangling issue, so you can ignore that.

2017 nominations.

There are plenty of relationships left that need to be approved/rejected, but I should be able to finish that up by tomorrow.

Relationships:
Clark Kent/Kryptonian Tentacle Creature
-Is the Kryptonian Tentacle Creature this Shoggoth or something else? Let me know so I can approve it!

Fandoms:
Homicide: Life on the Street
Iron Fist (TV)
iZombie (TV)
Rectify (TV)
The Goblin Emperor - Katherine Addison

These fandoms are under the minimum amount on either AO3 or FFN. Is there another place that has more?
Entry tags:

1 more day for nominations

There is 1 more day left for Not Prime Time's nominations! If you haven't nominated your fandoms or relationships (platonic or romantic) yet, you still have time.

If your fandom has been approved, but you're still waiting on your relationship tags to be approved, either I can't see it on my panel just yet or I just haven't gotten to it. They will be sorted before corrections are over, if not earlier.

Clarifications Part 2

Relationships:
-To those who nominated any Character/Original Character or Character/Others, please change your relationship nomination to something else or it'll get rejected.

-This is technically a crossover pairing because Natasha hasn't appeared on Agents of SHIELD, so please change your nomination to something else.

Gabriel & Lucifer & Michael (Dominion & Legion)
-Are these crossover pairings or do these characters all show up in Dominion (TV)?

Jack & None
-Which Jack is this?

Maria DeLuca & Alex Whitman & Liz Parker
-This doesn't look like a canonical AO3 tag in Roswell (TV), please change your nomination to something else.

Deanna Troi & William Riker & Worf
-This doens't look like a canonical AO3 tag in Star Trek: The Next Generation, please change your nomination to something else.

Reginald Barclay/Male Holocharacter
-Is the Male Holocharacter a specific character?

Clarifications Part 1

Relationships:
-To those who nominated any Character/Original Character, please change your relationship nomination to something else.

Eddie Thawne/Caitlin Snow | Killer Frost
-Is the Killer Frost version of Caitlin the Earth-2 version or is "Caitlin Snow/Eddie Thawne" okay?

Eddie Thawne/Eobard Thawne
-Is this "Eddie Thawne/Harrison Wells | Eobard Thawne"?

H.R. Wells/Wally West
-Is this "Earth-19 Harrison Wells/Wally West"?

Sigrun Eide/"No-Arms"
-Can you provide evidence of "No-Arms" in the Stand Still Stay Silent canon?

The Rowdy 3 - Relationship
-Did you mean "The Rowdy 3 & None"?

Peggy Carter & Phil Coulson
-Phil Coulson wasn't in Agent Carter (TV) and NPT doesn't do crossovers, so please change your nomination to something else. Agents of SHIELD hasn't been nominated yet, but this relationship tag can be nominated under that fandom if you want to shift it over there.

Phil Coulson/Root | Samantha Groves
-Phil Coulson wasn't in Person of Interest (TV) and NPT doesn't do crossovers, so please change your nomination to something else.

Lando Calrissian/Leia Organa/Luke Skywalker
-It doesn't look like this threesome tag is AO3 canonical, so please change your nomination to something else.

Mary Queen of Scots/James Earl of Moray
-Can you provide evidence of James Earl of Moray in Reign (TV) canon or does he go by another name?

Fandoms:
Genghis Khan - Miike Snow (Music Video)
I only found 45 works on AO3 for this fandom. Is there another place that has more? If not, please change your nomination.

X-Men (Movieverse)
Last year the X-Men movies were split and can be split this year into X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies) and X-Men (Original Timeline Movies). Is that okay or did people who wanted to request in this fandom want both timelines together? Please let me know.

If anyone sees any relationship tags that shouldn't be in a particular fandom (example: crossover pairings or a character that doesn't exist in said fandom), please let me know.
Entry tags:

Nominations are open

Nomination Form

Nominations run from April 5th until the 15th. You're able to nominate up to 7 fandoms and for each fandom, up to 12 platonic and/or romantic relationships (& or /). The fandoms must be medium sized fandoms (unless it's an RPF fandom or movie fandom which means it can also be a much smaller fandom). Please nominate fandoms that you are intending to request or offer. The eligibility rules are here.

You must have an AO3 account to use the nomination form. If you need an invitation, please contact us at notprimetime@gmail.com.

You can see the nomination tag set here to see what has been approved.

Note: Fandoms will be the first things approved. Relationship approvals will be much slower. Approved fandoms and relationships will be visible during nominations. The panel for approving fandoms and tags is finite, so I cannot see everything that people nominate. If you are wondering why Fandom X or Relationship Y is taking forever to be approved, it might be because I cannot see it on the panel due to other fandoms and relationships taking up that space.

Please use AO3 canonical fandom and relationship tags as much as possible. Those are the ones that get approved first and the AO3 canonical names are what we are using. If, as an example, you want to nominate 'El Gato/Sue Johnson' the relationship but AO3 has 'Sue Johnson/Juan "El Gato" Rodriguez' as the canonical, the tag set will use the latter.

If anyone nominates a fandom from the megafandom list, it will be flat out rejected. People who accidentally nominate too small fandoms will have a chance to change their nominations until the next clarification post.

When asking for clarifications, if I don't receive information by the next posting, that fandom or relationship will be rejected from the tag set. Please keep an eye out for clarification posts.

2017 Schedule
April 5 to 15 - Nominations

April 19 to 30 - Sign ups
May 3 - Assignments go out by the latest
May 5 - Madness collection and prompts open

July 11 - Main collection goes live
July 12 - Madness collection goes live
July 14 - Author reveals

The new changes are as follows:

1) Announcements will no longer be on LJ, just the DW comm.

2) Nominations will be through platonic or romantic (/ or &) relationships instead of characters. That means matching will be done through OR matching and not AND matching.

3) If you want to nominate a single character, you can do so through nominating 'Character & None' as a tag (ie Derek Hale & None). Three or moresomes will be allowed if they're already AO3 canonical tags.

4) You can request minimum of 1 relationship and a maximum of 8 relationships in each fandom. You can no longer request Any, however you can still offer Any.

5) Requests will be visible midway through signups. The anonymous author period will be shorter as well.

See everyone in a month for nominations!
