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!

Tagset

[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!

Pinch hits

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.

This is a modly reminder that your fanworks are due in a little less than 2 weeks! The deadline is June 1 at midnight.

Don't forget there is also a post for offering beta services, if you are either looking for a beta or want to offer.

No check-in is required, and comments to this post are NOT screened. But, if you like, feel free to use the comments to talk about how it's going in very general terms (remember that your gifts are anonymous until creator reveals, so you don't want to give away what you're working on!), commiserate with each other, etc. Just in case you feel like screaming about UNCOOPERATIVE WORDS, complaining about how difficult it is to find information on 1940s toothbrushes, squeeing about how you finally got that sex scene working, etc.

Here is the post to offer your beta services for SSR Confidential! Having your fanwork beta'd is not a requirement for this fest, but it is suggested, to make your gift the best it can possibly be.

Use the following template:

AO3 name, if participating in the exchange:
Preferred contact info:
Offering to beta these fanwork types:
Will beta for (ships, rating, etc):
Will not beta for (ships, rating, kinks etc you don't want):

For contact info, you can include an email, your LJ or DW name so people can PM you, etc. Types of fanworks in the fest are fic, art, and vids; please indicate which of these you're offering to beta for.

The "AO3 name if participating" line is mostly to keep people from accidentally sending someone their own gift to beta, since a lot of people have different usernames on different platforms! You don't have to be participating to offer to beta.

Fanwork creators looking for a beta, please check the comments at this post on DW and at this post on LJ to see if anyone is offering what you need.

Hi all - I hope your assignments are going well! You don't have to check in or anything, but this is a reminder that May 1 is the no-fault dropout deadline, to ensure that your assignment has plenty of time to find a pinch hitter if you know for sure that you aren't going to be able to finish in time. (Assignments are due June 1.)

In actual practice there probably will not be any kind of penalty if you drop out after May 1, but if you're pretty sure at this point that you are going to default, it would be nice to know in plenty of time so that I can arrange for a pinch hitter before the last minute!

Comments to this post are screened, so you can use the comments to contact me if you need to; you can also send me a PM.

Otherwise, happy writing/drawing/vidding; I hope you are enjoying your assignment and having fun with it!

Here are the resources I've collected so far. Any more you can suggest are very welcome (especially places where you can anonymously host art or vids) and will be added to this post.

Artist resources )

Vidder resources )

Writer resources )

Do you have any more? Please add them in the comments!

Assignments are out! Check your email! Who's excited??? I'M EXCITED!

Please contact me (via PM, or email me at layla@ravenschildren.com) ASAP if you have any problems with your assignment or did not receive one. I am also screening comments to this post so you can use this post to contact me also.

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 relationships 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 ...)

I'm going to put up an artist/vidder resources post shortly, which will include links to screencaps etc for artists, suggestions for anonymous places to host your art or vids since your gift will be anonymous at first, and that kind of thing.

Your stories, art, or vids are due by June 1. May 1 is the "no fault" dropout deadline. After that, you can still drop out, but you might have to complete a treat or something to participate next year (depending on how nice the mod is feeling and how many last-minute dropouts there are). Pinch hits, should they occur, will be announced here and handed out on a "first come, first served" basis.

Making treats (i.e. gifts for people you weren't assigned to, or extra gifts for your recipient) is 100% fine and encouraged! It is probably a good idea to do your assignment first, however.

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

I've done all the assignment matching and I'm currently waiting to hear back from AO3 on a support question (there appears a bug that's preventing me from saving one person's assignment). However, I have thought of a couple of workarounds if I don't hear back from them in a timely fashion.

In any case, I have a match for all 27 participants, and assignments should be going out this evening or tomorrow morning!

Signups are now closed. Assignments will go out in the next few days, once I finish matching participants. We have 27 signups - thank you to everyone for signing up, and watch your email for your assignment!
