At last, the collection is revealed! Click here to enjoy all the new rare ship goodness.

You should have received an email linking to your gift or gifts. You can also check your gifts page here: archiveofourown.org/users/[YOUR USERNAME]/gifts

On the collection works page, you can use the sort/filter bar to find stuff you're interested in, but I'd also recommend just scrolling through all four pages and seeing what catches your eye! There's some really great stuff for a wide variety of ships, and you might find something you never even knew you needed.

Some reminders:
  • Remember to re-date your work so it shows up in the right spot in the fandom tags! See this post for details.
  • Commenting on your gift(s) is nice exchange etiquette, and is required for RSOI. See the rules post for details.
  • If you'll be away from the internet for a significant amount of time post-reveals, you can optionally drop a note about it at the I'll Be Away post.
  • If there's something wrong with your gift (meaning, it violates a DNW; doesn't meet the exchange minimum; or doesn't fit one of your requested ships or mediums) please email me ASAP at rareshipsonice@gmail.com.
Final note, I will be posting round-up link posts for each ship to the exchange tumblr over the course of the anon period -- so, one post linking all the SaraMila works, one post linking all the ChrisVic works, etc -- for a bit of extra signal boosting and easy browsing :)

All assignments are in! Thank you, everyone. We're set for the collection to open on time -- that's Sunday, July 23, at 8 p.m. PDT (countdown).

Once I reveal the collection, all works will be visible and anonymous. They will also show up in the main fandom and ship tags according to the date you posted the work. The YOI tag moves fast, which means it's likely people not following the exchange won't see it... luckily, there's a solution for that:

Remember to re-date your work!
  1. After reveals, go to the work's "Edit Work" page
  2. Scroll down to the "Associations" section
  3. Click the checkbox for "Set a different publication date"
  4. Set it to the current date
This will bump the work up to the top of the tags, so YOI fans outside the exchange are more likely to see it! You can do this either at work reveals on July 23, or creator reveals on July 30, or really at any point. (Only re-date once, though, as a general guideline.)

If you reply to comments on your work, your replies will show up as "Anonymous Creator" Yes, even though it doesn't say so before you press submit. Those comments will automatically switch to your name after creator reveals on July 30 :)

If you have some time and want to increase the number of gifts we're looking forward to, consider creating an extra treat! You can browse all the requests here, or check out the searchable spreadsheet here. You are welcome to give treats at any time, before or after reveals.

I'll Be Away!!! Post + Updates

"I'll Be Away" Post
If you know you'll be away from the internet for a while after reveals, and want to let your gifter know your comment will be delayed due to vacation/having a baby/crying about your thesis/prepping for your annual dark demonic ritual summoning/traveling to a work conference -- you can comment on this post to say so. Please note your AO3 name if it's different from the account you use here.

Basically, this is for "I'll be gone for a week or more" stuff, not "I'm asleep during reveals and at work the next day." It's also optional, either way.

Gift-Checking Update
I checked that all assigned gifts matched a ship and medium requested, and skimmed for placeholders. I also skimmed for DNWs. In the event that I missed something, please don't hesitate to email me after reveals and I will ensure you have a gift that matches your requests.

If you have multiple mod hits on your work, it probably means I forgot that I already checked it ;)

Anonymity
There will be a week-long anonymous period between work reveals and creator reveals. Please do not link to a tumblr, twitter, or other identifying account in your work notes. You can add links in after creator reveals on July 30 :)

Collection Status
All creators with extensions have turned in their gifts! This means we only have the post-deadline pinch hits pending, which are due this Friday, July 21. Everything looks in good shape to open the collection on time.

Pinch Hits #5, 6, 7, 8 - ALL CLAIMED

These pinch hits are due Friday, July 21 at 8 p.m. PDT. Anyone is welcome to claim a pinch hit, whether or not you're signed up for the exchange. You just need to have an AO3 account.

To claim a pinch hit, email me at rareshipsonice@gmail.com with A) your AO3 name and B) the number of the pinch hit you want to claim.

Pinch hits will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. If you get the pinch hit, I'll reply to your email and assign you on AO3. If you see the pinch hit marked as "claimed" and you haven't heard from me, somebody else got there first.
Pinch Hit #5 - hopefullyanauthor - Fanart, Fanfic, and Podfic - CLAIMED )
Pinch Hit #6 - Jenny_Starseed - Fanfic - CLAIMED )
Pinch Hit #7 - Lady_Ganesh - Fanart and Fanfic - CLAIMED )
Pinch Hit #8 - tonberry - Fanfic - CLAIMED )

Deadline has passed!

I've closed the collection for a bit so I can sort through and default any un-filled assignments. It will be reopened shortly for further posting.

Works will be revealed next week, on Sunday, July 23 at 8 p.m. PDT. Creator reveals will be the following week. In the meantime, please stay tuned for post-deadline pinch hits! Or, consider spreading the rare ship love a bit more by finding someone to treat :)

Here is a bit more information about what happens next:

Any assignments still unfulfilled will be defaulted, and I'll post them as pinch hits here. Exceptions: if I've previously granted the creator an extension, or if the recipient has also defaulted. All extensions are due Tuesday, July 18, at 8 p.m.

I will be checking works for these things: whether they meet the exchange minimums; whether they match one of the recip's requested ships and mediums; whether the work is obviously unfinished (e.g. placeholder text). If I see a glaring issue, my first step will be contacting that creator at the email linked to their AO3 account with a deadline to fix it. If the work isn't fixed, I'll then default the assignment and send it out for pinch hitting.

If you're worried about not having a gift and don't see yourself go out to pinch hit, your creator probably has an extension. You're welcome to email me and I can check for you.

As always, if you have any questions, please email me at rareshipsonice@gmail.com.

Works are due today at 8 p.m. PDT. Here is your handy countdown. The collection will briefly close at that point so I can check for placeholders and incomplete assignments -- then it will reopen so treaters and pinch hitters can continue posting :)

Congratulations to everyone who has posted already, and good luck to everyone still finishing up! It's been exciting to see the works coming in.

Works are due this Sunday, July 16, at 8 p.m. PDT. (countdown). The collection will briefly close at that point so I can check for placeholders and incomplete assignments -- then it will reopen so treaters and pinch hitters can continue posting :)

The basics:
  • Post your finished work on AO3 by clicking on "Assignments" on your AO3 dash, finding your Rare Ships!!! on Ice assignment, and clicking "Fulfill."
  • Clicking it will take you to a "Post New Work" form with the exchange info pre-populated. You can check the "Associations" section to make sure the assignment's checked off, the collection's filled in, and your recipient's filled in.
  • Do not repost your work elsewhere (e.g. on tumblr, twitter, public forums) before creator reveals.
  • You can edit your work after posting it.
  • A saved draft does not count as a posted work. Make sure you have actually posted your work by the deadline.

While you can edit your work after posting, please have a complete work up by the deadline. You can be waiting on a final proofread or touch-up, but do not upload a placeholder gift or anything that would not be an acceptable gift if your recipient received it right then. I will be checking for obvious placeholders and gifts that don't meet the exchange minimum requirements.

Also, congratulations to those who've posted already! If you're looking for something to do next, consider finding someone to treat, or keep an eye out for any post-deadline pinch hits ;)
