Sign-ups are coming along nicely - so far we have 33 participants!
We have also had some questions about writing treats for the challenge. Last year, we did not have that as an option, but this year, we've decided to allow it. Treats are opt-in
, so if you are not interested in having more than one story remixed, you do not need to do anything.
If you are interested in receiving remix treats, please leave a comment on this post using the following format:
You may also indicate that you're open to treats in your signup details - signups will be visible to anyone.
ETA: For clarification, treaters are NOT required to remix a story from a qualifying fandom. Anything that is female-focused which is not a previous remix or a safe story is allowed. Treats should also follow the constraints set out in the remix challenge -- that is, all treats should be focused on women (for our given definition of "women"). That said, treats are not subject to the 1000-word minimum.
ETA2: Another clarification: non-participants are allowed to sign up for remix treats. However, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a remix unless you sign up for the challenge through AO3. If you are a non-participant, we would like to encourage you to sign up for the pinch-hit list
as well. You are also more than welcome to treat as much as you like.
The treat deadline is July 29 -- the same day as our final pinch-hit deadline.
