My sincerest apologies for being so bad about getting things in a timely fashion. I suppose I can't hound any of you for not sending things in on time since I don't post it for a week (almost two, sometimes) when you send it in, lol. But I'm hoping we'll get the last three fics sent in this week so the exchange can finally be over and then I can post the masterlist.

I've heard from grayglube already, so I know what's going on there. But I'd like to hear from terryvayne and distantemotivo, and find out where you are on your fics. I'd really like them all by the 25th/26th of July.

Thanks for your patience and I am so sorry to those of you that haven't received your fics yet! I will write them myself if I don't hear back from the writers soon! :)

Sorry for the delay in getting all of those fics posted! Thank you to the wonderful pinch-hitters for writing those and I hope all of the recipients enjoy their fics. I'd love to hear back from the pinch-hitters who have yet to send me their fics. I'd really love them as soon as possible, so that this exchange can end and I can put up the masterlist! :)

I'm hoping to hear from the following pinch-hitters ASAP. I'd really like an update on how your fic is coming along and when you think you'll be turning it in.

grayglube (a few more days)
seatigers (turned in)
terravayne (~Monday)
yndigot (turned in)
distantemotivo (unknown!)

If you have any comments, quesitons, or concerns, let me know! After the exchange officially ends, I'll make a post asking when you all think the next exchange should be held? Next spring, maybe? Or sooner? Or later? I don't know. Feel free to leave opinions in comments. :)

Thank you to everyone that signed up to be a pinch-hitter! I would have sent out assignments by now, but I've had some stuff going on irl and I've been on semi-hiatus. So, I'll be sending out pinch-hitting assignments to those that signed up by Tuesday/Wednesday. Thank you all again for being so generous. I didn't expect such a big turn out and I probably won't need all of the people that signed up. I'll make sure to reply to your comment if your services aren't needed, so that you're not left wondering if you missed my message or not. :)
