We have a pinch hit available! Details under the cut:

Pinch Hit #1 )

Please leave me a comment if you would like to claim it! First person to ask gets it. You do not need to be signed up to claim a pinch hit. Please leave your AO3 name if it's different from your DW name. All comments are screened.

Assignments are out, earlier than expected! You should have received an email at the email address you use for AO3. If you did NOT receive an email, or if there is a problem with your assignment, please contact me immediately by sending me a PM on DW/LJ, an ask on Tumblr, or leave a comment below. (Comments are screened, so only I will be able to see them!)

Remember, you only have to create fanworks for ONE of your recipient's requested characters or relationships, and you do not have to make fanworks for any character or relationship that you didn't offer. Some of you only matched on one. That's okay! Even if everything else in their request is a NOTP for you, you only have to write/draw/vid that one! (Obviously "don't bash your recipient's other OTPs" goes without saying ...) However, you do not HAVE to stick to the one you matched on; if you matched on Peggy/Angie, but they have an absolutely delightful Peggy/Rose prompt, feel free to make something for that one instead!

All assignments are due June 1 unless you ask for an extension. May 1 is our "no fault" dropout deadline, so if you know by that time that everything has gone horribly wrong and you will not be able to complete your assignment, please contact me and I'll arrange a pinch hitter. You can drop out later if you must, but the earlier I know about it, the more time the pinch hitter will have to create a gift for your recipient! Pinch hits will be announced at our LJ/DW/Tumblr communities, and will be handed out on a first come, first served basis.

You can also write/draw/vid treats for other participants -- that is, create gift fanworks for them that are not part of your assignment. All requests can be reviewed here for possible treatmaking. For treats, the usual minimums (1000 word fic/1 finished piece of art/1 minute vid) do not apply. Treats may be any size.

Happy writing/arting/vidding! I hope you like your assignment and have fun. Contact me with questions or problems.

SSR Confidential signups are now closed! If you have a letter, please make sure it is finished and unlocked. I'll start working on signup matching this afternoon, hoping to have them out on Monday.

[personal profile] sholio
You now have a little more time to sign up: SSR Confidential signups will close on Sunday, March 26, at 10:00 a.m. AK time. Originally it was smack in the middle of Saturday evening, and I figured this would make it easier for me to remember to close it, as well as letting last-minute stragglers come in.

Countdown timer
What time is that in my time zone?

Sign up here!

And now, back to frantically writing MY signup ...

If you like, you may link to your letters here, to make it easier for people to make treats for you! (This is optional.)

SSR Confidential 2017 signups are open!

You will need to request 2-8 characters and/or relationships, and offer 4-12. Characters and relationships will be entered in the "character" field; you may request either or both. Once you've ticked the "Agent Carter" tag, start typing to bring up a drop-down of possible tags with the character you want. If a tag you want doesn't appear, check the master list of tags (there's a known bug where tags don't always show up) and enter it manually if it's there.

For allowable types of fanworks, you can select from Fic, Drawn/Digital Art, Graphics (i.e. wallpapers, icons, etc), and Vids. You must choose at least one for requests and for offers. You can choose different ones for each (e.g. you can request fic and offer art).

Requests are public, so once people start to sign up, you can view the requests here for potential treating purposes.

Signups will close on Saturday, March 25 at 8:00 p.m. Alaska time (midnight Eastern time).

Let me know if you have any questions!

The 2017 SSR Confidential tag set is now closed to new nominations, and the text list of tags has been updated with the latest additions. Signups will open Wednesday and stay open through March 25. (So close! \o/)

Actually more like Monday morning; I'll close it when I get up on Monday.

If you end up thinking of any characters or relationships you need in the tagset after nominations close, I can add them for you manually!

[personal profile] muccamukk has volunteered to host a rewatch of Agent Carter for a canon review! From the intro post:

Since we're trying to get eighteen episodes watched before the main writing period really gets going, it's going to be pretty fast (think of it like those dance marathons from the 1930s). However, don't worry if this schedule doesn't fit your schedule. I'm just going to put the posts up on the below days; if you want to watch them then, yay, if you want to watch six on Saturdays and none during the week, also yay, just comment as something familiar passes you by.

Agent Carter Rapid Rewatch schedule and intro post - you can track the agent carter rewatch tag at Mucca's journal if you have a DW account. Anon commenting is turned on over there for those without DW accounts. There will be roughly an episode every two days, but everyone can watch along at their own speed (or just drop in and out of the discussion posts).

Since the tag list on AO3 is hard to read, a complete list of all tags currently in the set is under the cut. Everything submitted so far has been processed.

Question: What are your thoughts on including Arnim Zola as an allowable character tag? He only appears briefly in AC, but he does appear. I'm on the fence about this, because last year I don't think I allowed Steve to be nominated as a standalone character even though he also appears (in flashbacks), though either character as part of a pairing with an AC character is fine. DISCUSS.

All approved tags so far )

Nominations are open at the 2017 SSR Confidential tag set!

You can nominate up to four characters and relationships (total) that you would like to request or offer in the exchange. (In the exchange itself you will be able to request up to six, and offer more. Nominations, however, are capped at four since a basic set of characters and relationships is already available.)

Before nominating, check the tag set to see if the ones you want are already there. If so, you do not have to nominate anything (it isn't a qualifying step in order to participate).

If you nominate relationships, please enter them in the "Character" field and name them like this: "Relationship: Character's Full Name & Character's Full Name" (for gen) or "Relationship: Character's Full Name/Character's Full Name" (for ship). For example: "Relationship: Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli". You can include more than two characters in a relationship, and crossovers with other fandoms as long as at least one of them is an Agent Carter character. Please do not mix gen and ship in one relationship (for example, "Relationship: Peggy Carter/Howard Stark/Edwin Jarvis" is fine, but not "Relationship: Peggy Carter/Howard Stark & Edwin Jarvis").

Nominating characters should be self-explanatory. Use their full names, if known. You can only nominate Agent Carter characters, not characters from other fandoms or other parts of the MCU (although crossover characters can be part of relationships).

Let me know if you have any questions or need help with the form. Nominations will close on March 12.

Hi, and welcome to the planning post for the 2017 edition of SSR Confidential, an Agent Carter fanworks exchange, back for year 2! Also posted on LJ.

Tentative schedule (very similar to last year):
• March 1-12: Nominations.
• March 15-25: Signups.
• March 28 or 29: Assignments go out.
• May 1: No-fault dropout deadline.
• June 1: Fanworks due.
• June 8: Archive goes live.
• June 15: Reveals.

For the most part, everything went very smoothly last year. I'm contemplating a couple of rule changes for this year; let me know what you think?

- No placeholder fics. I'm totally fine granting extensions, and it's okay if a story is not beta'd yet and if you continue to revise/rewrite it right up to reveals, but when the deadline passes, you must have either asked for an extension, or you must have a finished story in the archive, NOT a copy-paste from some other exchange or some other kind of filler text. Otherwise your assignment will go out to pinch hit.

- Participants who don't comment or at least kudos their gift this year will be banned from signing up the following year (though they can still pinch hit). Signing up to receive a gift also means signing up to politely acknowledge your gift.

Thoughts, ideas, input? If we keep this schedule, tag set nominations will open in just about a week and a half. \o/

The SSR Confidential creators are now revealed, so you can now feel free to link to your fanworks, crosspost them as you normally would, and so forth. If you haven't already, please be sure to leave a comment for your creator!

Thank you to everyone for making this a great inaugural year. I'm definitely planning it on running it again next year, so watch us here at this comm, at [livejournal.com profile] ssrconfidential, or at [tumblr.com profile] ssrconfidential for the opening of nominations next year.

I'm also planning to run an Agent Carter Big Bang, but I don't have a timeline for that yet, and I have a busy couple of months coming up so I'm not sure when I'll get it off the ground. I'll make an announcement here when I know more, though.

Thank you all once again for participating!

The SSR Confidential archive is live!

We have art and vids, and fics both short and long; we have gen, F/M, F/F, M/M, and poly. Go and enjoy! Please remember to leave a nice comment for your fanwork creator, who took the time to make something they hope you'll like.

Thank you to all the creators, pinch hitters, beta readers, and treat-makers; thank you to those who spread the word, reblogged, signal-boosted, and offered suggestions and encouragement; thank you in advance to the commenters, the kudos-leavers, and the reccers; and thank you to the lurkers for simply being here, because we all started out where you are, and I know some of you will write, draw, or comment someday. (And if you don't, that's okay too!)

HAVE FUN!

Final and hopefully last notice of delay: the SSR Confidential archive will now open at noon my time/4pm EST. And that one I'm confident about! Once again, apologies for the delays, but we'll get this show on the road soon, and I'm really looking forward to sharing all of this with you. :)

There is a problem with an assignment that needs to be fixed before the archive can be opened, so the archive will not open tonight as planned. Right now, I'm planning to open it when I get up, probably somewhere around 8am AK time/noon EST.

I am very sorry about the delay! But I expect we'll be able to go live in the morning with no issues. *fingers crossed*

One of our pinch hitters is not signed up for the exchange, so I asked if they could give me some details/requests in case anyone wants to write them a treat.

They are [personal profile] chelseagirl/[archiveofourown.org profile] chelseagirl and here are their requests:

Peggy/Jason, Peggy & Howard, Peggy + the Jarvises )

Currently I'm planning to open the archive tomorrow evening tomorrow at midnight Alaska time, that is, late Wednesday/early Thursday (all the assignments are in; right now it's just last-minute edits and treats, both of which I know a few people are working on), so you have today and the better part of tomorrow to finish anything you're working on. Anyone who needs a bit more time can PM me if necessary, but otherwise I think we're set to go live tomorrow evening!

Okay, it's pinch hit time! At this point there are just two. Comments are screened; comment here or PM me to claim one. The deadline for pinch hits is Monday, June 6 at 11:59 p.m. Alaska time (so, effectively, morning on the 7th).

CLAIMED! Pinch hit #1: Angie Martinelli, Peggy Carter, Angie Martinelli & Peggy Carter; Fic
Details )


CLAIMED! Pinch hit #2: Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa/Jack Thompson, Daniel Sousa/Jack Thompson, Peggy Carter/Gabe Jones/Steve Rogers, Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers; Fic
Details )

And this is going to be AWESOME. Seriously, I'm so excited. We have gen, F/M, F/F, and M/M; we have fic, art, and vids; we have long fics and short fics and everything in between. This is going to be a delightful AC fanworks bonanza!

The official SSR Confidential deadline is 11:59 p.m. tonight, Alaska time (countdown timer!). Basically this means that if it's still June 1 anywhere in the world, you're probably good. I'm not going to be defaulting people on the dot of midnight, either; I'm going to wait 'til morning, and then see what I have and what needs to go out to pinch hit, so you'll have a slight grace period as well.

If you are going to be late but are confident that you can finish your assignment in time, please send me a PM or email me!

Also, comments to this post are screened, if you'd like to contact me that way.

The archive will be opened on June 8 (possibly a bit earlier if everything gets in ahead of time!). This is to allow time for pinch hits and extensions.

.... And treats! If you would like to make a treat for someone (note: this is 100% fine even if you defaulted or dropped out, and you do not have to be a participant to create treats!), all the requests are visible here. There are no minimum length/size requirements for treats; however, you should try to observe your recipient's likes and dislikes just as for a regular assignment.

Pinch hits, if we have any, will be posted to the LJ and DW communities tomorrow, and will be first come, first served.
