One hour left to sign up!

If you are still in the process of signing up, please reply to this post or ping me an email at worldbuildingmod@gmx.com with your AO3 username so I can keep an eye out for your sign up appearing. I can't hold the door open indefinitely but I will do my best to provide a little bit of wiggle room.

If you are still signing up, and you're aiming to provide detailed prompts*, then for what it's worth I would quite strongly suggest that to be sure of making it in time, you go down the route of linking to a placeholder letter and cut and pasting brief details of your strong DNWs into the Optional Details boxes, and then update the letter later.

*please note that prompts are not compulsory - Optional Details Are Optional applies in all directions, and in this exchange in particular many of the worldbuilding tags are essentially prompts by themselves

Sign ups closed

Thanks to everyone who has signed up!

There is just one participant who has come out of the initial stages of the matching process without any potential recipients. I have sent the individual concerned an email to the address they have registered with AO3 with some suggestions of how we can proceed; please respond within 24 hours, or I will (very sadly) be forced to delete your sign up in order to allow things to proceed.

Once I hear back from this individual, or after 24 hours have elapsed with no contact, I'll go ahead and generate assignments, initial pinch hits, etc. so watch out for something in the next 24-48 hours.

Assignments out

Assignments are on their way to your email, or you can check your AO3 assignments page.

(Thank you to the unmatchable participant for responding so promptly and being willing to extend their offers in several different directions.)

There are three initial pinch hits; details will be posted shortly.

ETA: Since everything ran so smoothly, assignments are out significantly earlier than expected; please be patient if you are currently looking at a locked/placeholder letter! (I would suggest waiting at least until the target time for assignments to definitely be out by, which was Friday night/Saturday morning depending on time zone, before worrying that it's not going to be updated.)

Here is a Google Doc containing all the requests in the exchange, for your crtl-F-ing pleasure.
