Summary: Moving out to his own place was supposed to give Zach a little respite from a house with four brothers. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t work out like that. It turns out that Zach is apparently the only hockey player north of the border who knows how to cook or do his own laundry.
It’s not all that bad, granted. They can clean, with some supervision. For example, Auston is very particular about always sweeping and mopping up the floors, and Mitch has a fantastic talent for folding laundry into animal shapes.
Actually, most nights it’s just Auston and Mitch that come over, help with dishes and laundry and whatever needs doing. In hindsight, that should have been some sort of clue.

Posting Schedule 2017

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. The mods will check all posts prior to their posting date and contact you with any issues we see, but please double-check your own posts as well in case we miss something. Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW and Tumblr. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 26, and will be posted August 27.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed-upon extension date, not 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.

Podfic Submission Checklist

Hi everyone!

We've been getting some questions about how to submit podfics, so here's a quick checklist of steps to follow:

If you are using our hosting:
  • Email us your mp3 file and any other file you'd like us to host, including m4b and/or cover art

  • Add a streaming option to your AO3 entry. You can get code for embedded streaming here or here.

  • Add a direct download option to your AO3 entry. Remember, all downloads must be available directly from AO3 (no clicking through to a different site).

  • Send us an email to let us know that your podfic has been added to your entry. We'll double-check it and email you back to tell you whether everything looks good from our end. If not, we'll talk you through fixing any final issues we notice.

If you are using your own hosting:
  • Add a streaming option to your AO3 entry. You can get code for embedded streaming here or here.

  • Add a direct download option to your AO3 entry. Remember, all downloads must be available directly from AO3 (no clicking through to a different site).

  • Send us an email to let us know that your podfic has been added to your entry. We'll double-check it and email you back to tell you whether everything looks good from our end. If not, we'll talk you through fixing any final issues we notice.

As a reminder, the early submission deadline is August 9th, and all podfics are due August 13th. If you are unable to submit by August 13th, please contact us to get an extension, and let us know the length of extension (up to 7 days) that you need. Extension requests must be made on or before August 13th.

I believe that's everything, but if you think of any remaining questions, feel free to ask them in the comments here.

Check-In #3

Welcome to the final check-in! We look forward to hearing from you and hope you are having fun!

Podficcers, when you check in, please let us know what’s going well, any concerns you have, and where you are in regards to meeting the August 13th deadline.

Writers, as long as your podficcer checks in, you’re not required to, but if you’re up for it we’d love to hear about any particularly positive or negative parts of your experience. The positive will make us smile, and the negative will give us an opportunity to offer help or give us valuable feedback that will help us tweak next year’s challenge to be better!

Some important notes/reminders:

  1. Remember to share any edited audio you have with your partner, and let them know what you’ve accomplished so far.

  2. Podficcers, please make sure you have given your writers some love about the work that they’ve done. Tell them what you think is great about their words. Sometimes in the rush to get things done, this step gets skipped, but it’s so important to everyone having a good experience! (Writers, once you hear the podfic, make sure you give your partner some love as well.)

  3. If you think it would enhance your podfic to have multiple voices contribute, please let us know and we’d be happy to find you volunteers!

  4. We put up our annual Party Favor Partner Finder post here. Check it out!

  5. If you are interested in a podfic con, check out Podfication, which will happen October 21–22 in Minneapolis. All three of your mods and a bunch of your fellow participants are going (full list of current attendees here), and we’d love to see you there!

Comments are screened.

Party Favor Partner Finder Post


It's time for our post to help people who might be interested in 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!
-Party Favors are turned in by posting them directly to the AO3 collection. More detailed posting instructions are here.
-The deadline is Saturday, August 26th.
-Party Favors are a revealed on Sunday, August 27th.

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 #2

Hello wonderful participants,

It's time for our second check-in! Please try to respond to this check-in within 48 hours. We will send a follow-up email to all those we have not heard from at that time.

The complete writing is due in one week, on July 15th. If you're on or ahead of schedule, you can find posting instructions here. 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 (more info here. Please note that the maximum extension is 7 days)*.
-The possibility of getting a beta or cheerleader
-The possibility of getting a cowriter
-The possibility of writing a shorter version of your original story plan for your podficcer to begin recording (which is able to stand alone in case a life emergency stops you from writing more) with the agreement that if there is time and interest by both parties, you might create additional scenes later to add on.
-The possibility of (with your partner's approval) leaving some areas of the script for podficcer ad-lib
-The option of scheduled 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. If anybody reading this knows that they are interested in pinch hitting, please feel free to let us know, and you will be the first we approach if the need arises.

Check-In #1

Today is our first check-in! You can check in over email or on this DW post (the comments on this post are screened, so your check-in here will be private between you and the mods).

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 Saturday July 15th. 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 concerns you may have about your group or your project.

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!

Icebreaker Week: Day 5

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 24th but, as always, you're welcome to contact the mods at any time for any reason.

Icebreaker Week: Day 4

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. There are also a couple of questions that touch on emergency planning.

  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.

  4. Sometimes life emergencies arise. Make an emergency plan!
    • How many days without communication between your team do you think should be limit before someone reaches out to the mods to tell them a teammate is MIA?
    • Are there any alternate ways of contacting you that you'd like your partner(s) to have?
    • If an emergency does arise, what would be your preferred way of dealing with it? Bringing on another team member to help out with writing/sound effects/editing/etc? Dropping out (and telling the mods ASAP so a pinch hitter can be found for your partner)? Having a less intensive back-up project idea in mind to switch to if needed? If you're the podficcer, recording a draft early so that if you lose your voice or are otherwise unable to record later on, you have an emergency back-up recording you can edit? What other thoughts or ideas about this do you have?
