"Carriage?" Grantaire laughs, but stops quickly, as it only makes his head hurt worse. "You have the wrong door."

"I don't," the child says, sticking out his chin and giving Grantaire a look like he'll drag him out by his shirt tails if it comes to it. "You're Grantaire, and I'm here to escort you, and you should really stop blinking at me and get your boots on. It doesn't do to keep these folks waiting."

Grantaire squints at him for a long moment, but the child stays as he is, heaving a great sigh and rolling his eyes toward the ceiling. "I'm not hungover. I'm still drunk," Grantaire says, with the weight of proclamation.

Here's the posting schedule. The mods will reveal the work on AO3, so all participants might want to do on that day is update the posting date on their work, so it'll show up on fandom RSS feeds. Unfortunately AO3 won't let you list a posting date in the future, so you'll have to manually change it on the day you want it to show on the RSS.

Please be sure to have your work ready for your reveal day, with the podfic links and streaming in the body of the work (streaming doesn't work elsewhere). Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW, LJ, and Tumblr, with podfics crossposted to the Audiofic Archive if participants agreed when asked. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 28, and will be posted August 29.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed upon extension date, not anytime before your posting date. However, if you would like to turn in a postable draft at your deadline and then update it between then and your posting date, you may.

Schedule )

Please let me know if there are any problems with the schedule; posting starts tomorrow!
Also, please make sure I have the writer(s)/podficcer(s) done correctly.

[personal profile] klb

Many of you are in the final stages of your projects, and so we thought it would be a good time to put up our yearly post to help people who want to work on Party Favors find each other. In case you've never done a Party Favor before, here's what you need to know:

-There is no word minimum
-There's no official commitment involved—mods usually don't even know a Party Favor is being planned until it's turned in!
-The deadline is Friday, August 28th
-Party Favors are a revealed on Saturday, August 29th

If you are interested in creating a Party Favor but don't have a partner in mind, feel free to leave a comment here and the mods will help spread the word. If you see anybody looking for a partner here, just respond to them directly and you're good to go!

Check In #3

[personal profile] paraka
This is the last official check-in before the project completion deadline on August 16th. Don't forget that completed projects submitted before August 12th get special consideration when it comes to early posting dates.

(If you are someone who would find additional check-ins helpful, please let us know, and we'd be happy to schedule a follow-up check-in with you between now and the deadline!)

Remember to share what you've done so far with your partner, which means that if you have a partial podfic completed, now is the time to send that to your partner. Also, if you haven't given your writer feedback about their work, please take that opportunity to do it now. We've found that it's often very important to pod_together participants to have their work acknowledged and appreciated by their partners, and sometimes with the rush to meet deadlines, this important step in the process can get overlooked! So this is your official reminder to send some love and support to your partner :)

And of course, please let us know any ways we can support you. Options include:
-Putting out a call for a co-podficcer for part of the story
-Putting out a call for an editor to help edit your podfic
-Additional check-ins/cheerleading/podfic betas

If you think you'll need an extension, please remember how to request one. And as a reminder, the posting period this year is much shorter than it's been in years past, so we're limited in how long an extension we can give.

Okay, we look forward to hearing from you! We hope you are having fun!

First off, thank you to everyone, we managed to find pinch hits for the requests we put out yesterday. So far we've always been able to find pinch hits for everyone within 24 hours and that's thanks to our great participants.

Tomorrow is our second check-in; while you're welcome to wait until then, feel free to make your check-in early. You can check in over email, tumblr, twitter, LJ, or DW--whichever feels most comfortable to you.

The complete writing is due in just over a week, on July 19th. If you're not feeling confident in your ability to finish the writing within the next 7 days, please let us know and we can talk about:

-The possibility of extensions (link to FAQ)
-The possibility of getting a beta or cheerleader
-The possibility of getting a cowriter
-The possibility of (with your partner's approval) leaving some areas of the script for podficcer ad-lib
-The option of daily accountability check-ins, if that will help keep you motivated and not stressed!

Also, please remember to share what you've written so far with your partner. The minimum requirement is once per check-in!

Finally, if you're realizing that what you really need in order to take care of yourself is to drop out, that's fine. Yay self-care! Please let us know as soon as possible, though, so we can offer your partner a pinch hitter.

Less-traditional-to-podfic formats welcomed.

Please let us know if you think you might be able to help, and/or spread the word to others you know who might be interested—we'd love to find a pinch hit by the end of the day!

Tomorrow is our first check-in, but we’re putting the post up a bit early! If you’re excited, too, feel free to make your check-in early. You can check in over email, tumblr, twitter, LJ, or DW--whichever feels most comfortable to you.

Now is also a good time to touch base with your partner(s). Remember that sharing your work-in-progress with your partner(s) is mandatory, and that the minimum requirement is once per check-in. That means that, if you haven't already shared what you have so far, now is the time to do so. Partners, don’t forget to give feedback/encouragement on the work-in-progress when you see it!

Completed writing is due in 3 weeks, on July 19th. When you check in this weekend, let us know if you feel on track for that deadline so far. We'd also love to know what's going well in your group and any worries you may have about your group or your project. Comments on LJ/DW are screened, and Asks on tumblr will not be published.

It's very early in the game, so if you are anticipating difficulty, this would be a great time to start discussing problem-solving options. We're extremely committed to making sure all participants have as positive an experience as possible! And if everything’s going awesome, YAY, we can’t wait to hear all about it!

Today's questions focus on fanworks you've already made and will help partners become more familiar with each others' work.

  1. Share a piece of a fanwork you're particularly proud of (a page or so of a written work, a few minutes of an audio work) and explain why you're proud of it.

  2. Read/listen to your partner's shared fanwork, and give feedback about what works for you about it.

This is our last icebreaker. We hope that groups have found them informative and helpful! Remember, the first check in is on June 28th but, as always, you're welcome to contact the mods at any time for any reason.

Today's questions dig a little deeper into what makes group work work or not work for each person, and then goes on to begin (or continue!) the conversation about options for collaboration on each part of your project.

  1. Tell your partner about a good and a bad group work experience you've had, either in fandom or at school or work (or other). What made the good one good? What made the bad one bad? What did you learn about yourself and what makes group work successful for you?

  2. Suggest ways that the podficcer might be involved in the writing process that would work well for you.

  3. Suggest ways that the writer might be involved in the podficcing process that would work well for you.


For your aural pleasure
