Hi folks! Just a check-in post to see how everything is going! A few things:

* Reminder that you must upload your fic to A03 by Saturday, September 13th (and thank you to those who have done so already!). Your fic must be complete when you upload it. No placeholders, nothing less than 1000 words.

* If you need a beta, or would like to help someone out, check out our beta post!

* If you would like to sign up to be a pinch-hitter, in case someone drops out, check out our pinch-hitter post!

* If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment here, or email to narniaficexchange@gmail.com

Also, let's talk Madness! There will be a week between the deadline and the reveals, and during this period we can have a Madness Round, if there's interest. I will open up the prompts, and you can choose to write one, or as many as you want. There will be no required length, and anyone can participate.

Thank you!

So, I've had a couple of questions about multiple stories written for the same prompt. Evidently some of you were really inspired! \o/

The questions were about whether I could post them as part of the NFE, or if the authors could post them elsewhere. I am always fine with any of the stories written for the NFE being posted elsewhere, but only after all the stories for the round are posted, so the authors are revealed. This applies to secondary stories as well.

However, if people are interested, I would be glad to post them to the comm first, as a kind of "bonus story" for the recipient.

I can see doing this one of two ways:

1) I can post all the stories submitted for the recipients, and when everyone has received at least one story, I can post the bonus stories at the end of the posting.

2) We can do a week of Madness posting, similar to Yuletide Madness. I could post all the prompts, and people could write stories (of any length!) for these prompts, and post them to the comm, either before posting begins (in the week between the deadline and posting, so August 19th - 26th); or after all the stories are posted (so post-September 30th, give or take a few days).

If we went with the second way, I would open the community to posting by all members, so you could post the stories yourself to the comm. They would not have to be anonymous, they would not have to beta-ed, they could be any length (from drabble on up), and you would not have to be signed up to the NFE to participate, you would only have to join the community to post.

The drawbacks I see to this are:

- there is no guarantee that people would get more than one story, so I don't want people feeling bad that they don't more stories.
- people would feel pressure to write multiple stories, and would feel bad if they can't do so.
- if the Madness round is before regular posting, assigned writers might feel that their stories about being overshadowed by Madness fics (we could get around this by just revealing the prompts and not the name of the prompter, I guess).

So, bearing all that in mind, I am going to ask you to tell me what you think, once again. :)

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] aurilly has a third suggestion for how to proceed with additional prompts in a Madness round, see the comments.

Thank you! And remember, if you're not participating in the NFE, you can still vote in this poll, if you're interested in a Madness round.

Just like it says, today is your last day to sign up! The signups close tonight at midnight PST, but if you're a little late, don't sweat it. As long as it's in my inbox when I wake up tomorrow, you're good. :D

Once all the signups are in, I will do the matching, and you'll have your assignments as soon as that's done, no later than June 24th.

Also, the NFE has been a double-blind exchange for the last few years, meaning that participants don't know who they're writing for, nor who is writing for them. So I just have a quick poll to see if you would like to go back to the previous format, where the participant knows the name of their recipient, before the story is posted!

Thanks for taking the poll!

That was all of the fics in this years round. I am so proud and amazed at the quality of all your fics. I absolutely loved them all.

The master list will be posted sometime this week.

Also take a look at our new layout. The header was made by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics (I'm going to go and beg her to make one without a year on it so I don't have to change (or bug her to make a new one) each year.)

Talking about next years round, when do you all want to have it?

Last year you did not know who you were writing for. Do you want that to change this time around?
