Pinch Hits #9 and 10

The archive hasn't opened yet because not all pinch hits have been covered. One is still open, and another pinch hitter had to drop out, so these two are still open/reopened:

#9 (The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, Old Kingdom) TAKEN

#10 (MCU, Burn Notice, XMFC/DOFP) TAKEN

If you want to claim one of these fics, comment here or there with your AO3 username. Deadlines can be negotiable, but I'd like to be able to open the archive relatively soon.

Sorry for the delays, everyone!

Archive won't open

Just to be clear, the archive won't be opening until there's a story for every participant. Once all stories are in, I will post a notification giving several hours' warning for those who are still editing.

ETA: If you are considering pinch hitting or are still editing your story, I've set a soft deadline a little over three days from now. Assuming people do volunteer to cover the pinch hits and get them in by this time, the archive will open Wednesday the 1st at 6:00 PM CST (click to see the time in your zone). The archive won't open before this time (though of course it might be delayed further).

One more week for assignments!

Remember, your fics should be complete and uploaded to AO3 a week (and an hour) from now, next Sunday at midnight CST!

If you need to default on your assignment, please do so sooner rather than later, so that we have the best chance of getting a pinch hitter for your recipient and making sure the archive opens on time.

Dear Gen Writer Letters

This is the post to drop a link to your dear writer letter! In a comment, leave the URL along with the fandoms and characters you requested.

A "dear writer" letter is not required, but it's a great way to give your writer some more information about what you like/dislike and additional prompts and ideas.

There is a known AO3 bug where character names that are in the tag set do not show up in the drop-down box in the sign-up form. If you don't see the character you want, go to the tag set, copy and paste the whole tag, including any disambiguations (i.e., Clint Barton (616)), into the form, and add a comma to complete the tag.
