Ficathon Reminder and Admin Type Stuff

Fear my command of teh English language tonight!

Just a couple of things:

Firstly, your ficathon assignments are due two weeks from tomorrow.

This also means that if you aren't going to be able to finish your story on time, you need to let us know now so we can organise a pinch hitter. Anyone dropping out after today without good reason may end up being banned from participating in future ficathons. Also, please remember that if it looks like your story is going to end up being epic and you don't think you'll get to finish it fully on time but would like to post it as a WIP, please contact aithine or I first to discuss how we take it forward. We're not unreasonable people (or [info]aithine isn't - me, I'd check I'm fully stocked up on the diet coke front first ::g::), so we'll be as accomodating as we can, but it's better if we know now so we can be prepared.

Secondly, this is the official pinch hitter sign up post. For those who aren't familiar with the term, a pinch hitter is someone who steps in at short notice if one of the authors drops out without delivering a story to make sure that no one is left without one. They're therefore completely wonderful people :) And you don't have to have signed up for the ficathon in order to step in now, although we would ask that if you're a participant in this go around that you only sign up if you've already finished your own assignment or are 100% sure you can finish both.

So if you think that you, too, could be utterly wonderful, please leave a comment below with the following information:

- name
- e-mail address
- what you will write
- what you won't write.

Comments are screened to maintain that air of mystery in terms of who's getting what and from whom, but thank you to everyone who volunteers! If we need you, we'll let you know. Hopefully we won't, but we're grateful anyway :)
