We understand that sign-ups are complex (particularly in this exchange) and many participants have more time to complete a sign-up on the weekend. Because of that, we have decided to extend sign-ups through the weekend. 

So with that in mind, your new sign-up deadline is: Sunday, July 30 at 12 (noon) p.m. PDT. (
Countdown here!)

We still plan on sending out assignments on the 30th, as planned. However, if matching proves difficult, we will adjust the schedule accordingly. Everyone will still get the 2 month window to create their assignments, even if we have to shift dates a little.

Monday, Monday, so good to me. That's what the song says, anyway. What have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Today's question: Do you post any of your writing anonymously? (Goodness knows I do.)

*puts on sunglasses* All right, it's – *gets a paper fan, fans self* – it's, ugh, the dead of summer where I am. Hopefully, the writing life isn't quite so dead. What have you been doing?

— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.

And what's your plan of attack for this final week of the month?

Hey, guys! Signups close in a little under 4 days @ 11:55 PM PDT on Thursday, July 27. Here's a countdown.

Signups are now closing at 12:00 PM PDT on Sunday, July 30th.

As a reminder, if you choose more than 2 fandoms for a single request/offer, you can match on any combination of those fandoms. We strongly encourage you to spread out your prompts and other optional details across all those possible combinations. We've seen a few signups with holes in those areas.

We also wanted to remind everyone that you can choose only 2 fandoms per request/offer. So if you'd like to see Pacific Rim crossed with Alias OR Stranger Things, but you aren't interested in a crossover between Alias and Stranger Things, you should put Pacific Rim/Alias in one request and Pacific Rim/Stranger Things in another request.

All of that said, optional details are ultimately a courtesy to your artist or author. We strongly encourage the use of optional details/prompts, particularly in an exchange like this one, but we can't force you to use them. If you choose not to leave optional details for a particular crossover match, your artist or author will be free to create whatever they want, so long as they mind your DNWs.

    From United We Dream, info@unitedwedream.org:
    The Dream Act of 2017 has been introduced in the Senate to protect DACA recipients. It has four sponsors: Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). United We Dream asks for peole to telephone their Attorney General. The number they give is (832) 610-3896.

    Their suggested message is "I am calling to ask the Attorney General to come out publicly to defend the DACA program. This program has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth across the country and it must be protected. I expect my attorney general to support the immigrant community and protect DACA."

    The dry Nevada desert town of Las Vegas can be deadly if you're not careful. The mean streets of Vegas are flashy, brashy, and full of all the wrong characters. I know this loud city too well. My office overlooks the Sands hotel and my business is murder. I'm Frank. Frank Dawson, Private Detective. I cover this beat, from one end of the strip to the other, and everything in between. Usually, I do it while trying to avoid my buddy old pal Monty. Lieutenant Tony Monticello that is. I call him Monty, because it annoys him. Much like he annoys me. There, see, we annoy each other. Life is beautiful.

    Right now, I need to go see a guy about a murder....
