 Remember, nominations close at 11:59pm EST on December 29, so please get your nominations in before then!

And now, some clarifications. Some of these have been outstanding a while and if they are not clarified by the time signups open then I will have to reject them.

Aldnoah.Zero
Could the nominator for the following tags please give me a bit more information about these tags? They look like worldbuilding to me and I'm not really sure how they fit an exchange with our focus. Happy to be persuaded otherwise!
  • Earthlings & Versians
  • Vers & Mars

Crossover Fandoms
Could the nominators for the following tags please confirm which iteration of characters you intended to nominate as it is unclear:
  • Clark Kent (DC) & Twelfth Doctor (Doctor Who) - Which Clark?
  • Doctor Strange & Dumbledore - Which Doctor Strange?
  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - Which Harley and which Wade?
  • Harleen Quinzel/Wade Wilson - Which Harley and which Wade?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/Dean Winchester - Which Bucky?
  • Kaylee Frye/Montgomery "Scotty" Scott - Which Scotty?
  • Loki (Marvel) & Mad Hatter|Jefferson - Which Loki?
  • Parker (Leverage) & Deadpool - Which Deadpool?
  • Red Riding Hood | Ruby/Natasha Romanov - Which Natasha?
DCU
Could the nominator for DCU (that is, not DCU (Comics) but DCU) please revise your nomination? It looks like under one fandom nomination you have DC Comics, The Flash (TV), Batman Beyond, Gotham (maybe?), possibly the Vertigo imprint of The Authority (unless you mean reboot Midnighter and Apollo) and some others as well. This is too broad a category and further it's unclear which incarnation of the characters you mean. Please revise your nomination to nominate characters under more specific fandoms. The tagset may be able to help you if you're not sure what categories you could use.

Doctor Who

There are currently three separate groups in the tagset: Doctor Who the overarching tag, one for the original series and one for the reboot. Do you want them under the "Doctor Who" overarching tag or split into the original series and the reboot?

Marvel Cinematic Universe
Could the nominator for these tags please nominate these under Crossover Fandoms:
  • Clint Barton & Deadpool
  • Peter Parker/Wade Wilson

Shinreigari GHOST HOUND
Could the nominator for the following tags please give me a bit more information about them? On first reading they look to be prompts rather than relationship tags.
  • Astral Projection & Childhood Trauma
  • Komori Tarou & Dreaming
  • Nakajima Masayuki & Self-loathing
  • Oogami Makoto & Komori Tarou & Family Trauma
Star Wars
The poll is still going and will continue until 12:01am on the 28th (or when I pry myself from Final Fantasy XV, whichever comes second). Whichever doesn't win the vote out of AMT or individual series will not be approved, rejected or amended, so that the nominators have the ability to change their nom(s).

X-Men Movieverse
How do you want to split this? Putting it all in one tag with disambig tags, or separate it out into individual timelines? Or something else?

Also! If there is tagset drift, please let me know! This is especially a problem for Marvel and DC products, Tolkien, and crossovers. Thanks!

As a reminder, please do not nominate crossover ships into anything other than Crossover Fandoms. Thank you!

Age of Youth
Are you guys fine with me merging the two tags for this fandom into one? 

 Crossover Fandom
If you are the nominator for the following crossover ships, please identify which version of the character you intended to nominate:
  • Doctor Strange & Dumbledore - Which Dr Strange and which Dumbledore?
  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • Harleen Quinzel/Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/Dean Winchester - which Bucky?
  • Kaylee Frye/Montgomery "Scotty" Scott - which Scotty?
  • Loki (Marvel) & Mad Hatter|Jefferson - which Loki?
  • Parker (Leverage) & Deadpool - which Deadpool?
  • Red Riding Hood | Ruby/Natasha Romanov - which Natasha?
  • Viktor Krum & Victor Nikiforov - book or movie Viktor Krum?

Marvel Cinematic Universe
If you nominated the following ships please either confirm that they appear in this fandom or move your nominations into Crossover Fandom (along with clarification as to which Deadpool you mean):
  • Clint Barton/Deadpool
  • Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
Tagset Migration
Some tags have wandered because of weird associations behind the scenes. If you are the nominator for the following tags, please let me know where they actually go.
  • Eighth Doctor/Jack Harkness
  • Jonathan Archer & Chef 
  • Jonathan Archer & Degra
If there have been any other weird migratory tags, please let me know!

And a reminder that the poll for how to split the Star Wars noms is still open!

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
Wow! You guys are so fast with your nominations! Here are some more things that need clarification, as well as some that are from the last post.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
If you nominated Diana/Maria Hill, please either confirm that Maria is a character in this movie or move your nomination to Crossover Fandom along with clarification as to which Maria Hill you mean.

Crossover Fandom
If you are the nominator for the following crossover ships, please identify which version of the character you intended to nominate:
  • Bruce Wayne/Tony Stark - Which Bruce and which Tony?
  • Doctor Strange & Dumbledore - Which Dr Strange and which Dumbledore?
  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • Harleen Quinzel/Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/Dean Winchester - which Bucky?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/James Bond/Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov - which Bucky, Clint, and Natasha?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/James Bond/Natasha Romanov - which Bucky and which Natasha?

  • Parker (Leverage) & Deadpool - which Deadpool?
  • Red Riding Hood | Ruby/Natasha Romanov - which Natasha, and please confirm whether Ruby is from RBWY?
  • Viktor Krum & Victor Nikiforov - book or movie Viktor Krum?

Harry Potter - JK Rowling

If you nominated Newt Scamander & Newt Scamander's Niffler, please either confirm that you meant the books, or move it into Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies).

Marvel Cinematic Universe
If you nominated the following ships please either confirm that they appear in this fandom or move your nominations into Crossover Fandom (along with clarification as to which Deadpool you mean):
  • Clint Barton/Deadpool
  • Peter Parker/Wade Wilson

Star Wars

There doesn't seem to be a clear consensus, so I'm opening it up to a vote. Currently the options I'm considering are:
  • Merging all nominations into All Media Types, with which individual series you mean to be specified in optional details;
  • Merging all nominations into All Media Types, with individual series to be specified in the tag after the character names (i.e. Character A & Character B (Source));
  • Approving by era (Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Clone Wars, Rogue One, The Force Awakens, Rebels and anything else that comes up).
As apparently you can only do polls if you have paid time, I have set up the second best option: roll calls Please comment in the correct subthread with your preference. The one with the most votes by 28 December is the one that I will do.

Have fun and keep nominating!

EDIT: NEVER MIND STAR WARS FANS WE HAVE A POLL. GO VOTE.

EDIT 2: ...or not because I can't get it to work. I'll have another go once I get back from Christmas Things. Sorry, guys!

  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • Harleen Quinzel/Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/Dean Winchester - which Bucky?

  • Rocket Raccoon & Cosmo - Can you confirm that Cosmo has appeared in the MCU?
  • Final Fantasy XV nominator(s): please provide the full names for your characters - I cannot wiki to correct your nominations to reflect their full names because I have yet to play the game, and I don't want to be spoiled by accident!
If any tags have wandered, please let me know!

 It's a bit early, but I figured "why not?"

You can find the tag set here! Nominations close at 11:59pm EST on December 29.

In terms of nominations:
  • just about any fandom is eligible;
  • Please remember that "Character A/Character B" is shipfic while "Character A & Character B" is genfic
  • There is no limit on the number of characters that can be in a combination other than the AO3 character limit;
  • Crossovers must be nominated in "Crossover Fandom", which is already nominated. Crossovers that are not nominated in this fandom will be deleted.
  • Original Works are okay and I have nominated that fandom for you already;
  • You will be required to offer two tags per fandom on signups (unless only one relationship tag is nominated), so please keep that in mind when nominating.
Please watch this comm for updates about clarifications, merging of fandoms, and my getting increasingly drunk as we head towards Christmas! DRUNK MOD BEST MOD.

 And that's a wrap! We have had 56 (!!) new treats uploaded into the collection over the last week, so I invite you all to have a second look at the collection. There are still some people on the no treat list, so feel free to fill those whenever you like!

If you have any feedback or suggestions for next year, please let me know in the comments. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you all next year!

Because we can't get enough of gift exchanges, here are two exchanges I have absolutely nothing to do with and one that I run!

Once Upon a Fic is a fic exchange for fairy tales and myths. Signups are open until the 21st of February, and it looks like someone nominated the horse that knocked Loki up, which automatically makes it an A+ exchange in my book. I know nothing about this one as I am not a participant, but the mods are cool people so if you want more fairy tales and myths, here's your exchange!

Smut Swap is an art and fic exchange for smut. Nominations are until the 17th, and there are a lot of kinky tags in that tag set. I know nothing about this one either, as I'm not participating and am promoting it at the request of a participant, but if you have a hankerin' for some spankerin', this exchange has you covered. And no, I don't feel bad for that joke.

Press Start is my other exchange, and it is a art/fic/vid exchange for video games! It isn't starting up until June but if you like my modding style and want to hang out with us over at Press Start, then you have plenty of time to play some video games and chill with us. We're cool! Well, they are. I think making terrible video game puns on FFA is hilarious, so I am not very cool at all.

Also, your regular no treat list promotion!
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
The archive is live! Coming in at 560 works, which is a remarkable effort. Reveals may not happen immediately, because of how AO3 does its reveals.

Some things!
  1. Some fandoms are not wrangled. This sucks! If you come across a work whose fandom is not wrangled, drop a comment here and I will add it to this post so that people know it is there!
  2. If you write treats between now and author reveals, I will round them up in a post at the end of the anon author period. So if there was a person on the no treat list you wanted to give something to, you still can! 
Any problems, drop them in a comment here, otherwise well done everyone!

Unwrangled fandoms:

Ar nosurge: Ode to a Unborn Star
Chuck Tingle RPF
Teeth - Lady Gaga

All pinch hits are in, and so we are going live to reveal all works at 12:01am EST on the 14th. Have a countdown!

Five hours is plenty of time to prepare a short treat, and if you're looking to really make someone's gift exchange please take a look at the no treat list!  Of course, the more treats the merrier, and you are free to treat whoever you like whether they are on that list or not. TREATS FOR ALL.

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
The due date for pinch hits has passed and there are two emergency pinch hits. Please consider picking these up if you can!

The archive will not go live until these two have been filled or at 12:01am on 14 February, whichever is the later. If you are not one of these two participants, you turned in your assignment, and you do not have a gift of your own please contact me immediately!

Comments are screened!

EDIT: Both are claimed, but treats would obviously not go astray!

Pinch Hit #43: Alien: Resurrection, The Craft, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Calamity Jane, Rosemary and Thyme - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #44: Tortall, Crossover, Long Live the Queen - CLAIMED )

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
Currently, the archive is set to reveal at 12:01am EST on 14 February 2016. This will be moved back if there are any emergency pinch hits, but so far we are on track for revealing at that time.

Also treat list! We're slowly whittling down the list!

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
Hi all!

The treat list has been updated! If you are not on there and you think you should be, let me know! If you have a treat uploaded and your recipient is still on the list, please check which collection you uploaded your gift to. There are still works in the "chocolatebox" parent collection, so please move them to the "chocolatebox2015" collection, thank you!

If you do not have a gift yet, you turned in your assignment, and you did not go out for pinch hit after the due date please contact me immediately! I'll be checking, but any help you can give me here would be appreciated.

Also, we are down to one unclaimed pinch hit, which I am reposting! If you can pick this one up, please comment below with your AO3 name. Comments are screened!

Pinch Hit #40: Tortall, Crossover, Long Live the Queen - CLAIMED )
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
Uploading
When you are uploading your gift, please do it to the "chocolatebox2015" subcollection and not "chocolatebox". I'm not looking at the parent archive and so if you have treats uploaded there I will not see them. Thank you!

Treat list
The treat list has been updated! We are making progress on the community challenge. Let's see how many we can clear tomorrow!

Pinch hit
We still have three pinch hits left to be claimed over here!

We also have a new one. If you can take it, please comment with your AO3 name. Comments are screened!

Pinch Hit #42: Check Please!, Crossover Fandom, Hockey RPF, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Witcher, MCU, Original Work - CLAIMED )

More posts!

Mod contact

If you need to contact me, please do it by email! If you send me a DW message I often cannot respond and at this point I am too time poor to dig through the signup list to find your email to email you. The mod email is chocolateboxmod[at]gmail. Please contact me that way. Then I can respond to you!

Treat challenge

As mentioned, I have prepared a list of everyone who:
a) turned in a story at the due date; and
b) does not have a treat.

This could mean that some people who are on the pinch hit list will not be here, as they have treats, but no assigned story. It is also likely that I have missed people out by accident. If that is the case, please email me and I can add you back in!

I propose a challenge. There are a lot of people on this list. But there are also a lot of participants here. Let's try and get everyone on this list off this list! I'll review this list on a daily basis and remove people who receive treats that day.

If anyone would like to do a spreadsheet of all the prompts for these people, let me know and I will give you a shell of the spreadsheet with all the names on it. Otherwise, you can find all the prompts here!

EDIT: A kind anon has prepared a document of the prompts!

Here is the list! Warning: long )

The due date (+ an hour just in case AO3 decided to be weird) has passed! If you do not have a gift, there are a couple of possibilities:
1) Your gifter has an extension of time;
2) Your gifter did not turn in their assignment and you are a pinch hit;
3) You and your gifter did not turn in an assignment at the due date.

If you have any concerns about whether you have a gift or not, please email me and I can explain your situation in more detail.

There are 20 initial pinch hits, with possibly more to come. If you are able to assist with picking these up, please leave a comment with your AO3 name and which one you would like. Gifts are due by 11:59pm on the 12th. Comments are screened!

Assignments and pinch hits are due at 11:59pm EST today! I won't be really at a computer to do much more than default outstanding assignments, so pinch hits won't go out until probably 6am EST at the earliest.

Additionally, I am in the process of doing up a spreadsheet of each participant's gift list. After the due date has passed, I will be using this spreadsheet to prepare a list that indicates who wrote a story but does not have any treats. If you're interested in helping ensure that everyone who participated in the exchange gets a treat, then keep an eye out for that list!

If you have a hit on your work, the spreadsheet is why. I'm not actually looking at your work; AO3 has a truncated summary of who has written what, and I'm copying the address for each work into the spreadsheet. If you have more than one, I have no idea what is going on there.

Other than that, keeping arting/writing! We're so close to due date, and then reveals!

Two more pinch hits! One is a repeat, but with a new number. If you are able to pick either of these up, please comment with which one and your AO3 name. All comments are screened!

Pinch Hit 20: Chrestomanci, Young Wizards, Labyrinth, The Queen's Thief, Firefly - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit 21: Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Other Space, Crossover Fandom - CLAIMED )

We're about halfway through the writing phase, so how is everyone going? Are you onto your fifteenth treat or still searching for inspiration for your assignment? Or are these characters flat out refusing to kiss and it's really annoying?

Feel free to vent or boast, but remember that we're still anonymous so please do so in a way that doesn't reveal what you are writing or for whom!

One more pinch hit! If you're interested in taking this one, leave a comment with your AO3 name. All comments are screened!
