I sure picked a good day to join this fandom. So much dramaaaaaaaa.

Also, I installed a thingy to blacklist tags on AO3, and it is great. Except now literally entire pages are hidden, which... you know, kind of depressing.

OKAY HERE WE GO

I have caught up on Supergirl and backread through like twenty pages of fic only to discover that none of them are what I want*, so I guess I'm going to handwave a couple of people back to life for the drama, learn how to write Cat Grant's voice even though I will be terrible at this because she is my favorite, maybe write Maggie's backstory or something about J'onn... oh, and I guess Jeremiah is still out there somewhere doing... whatever. I don't know, I have a lot of ideas.

I tend to do better with characters than with plot so some of this might be a total disaster, buuuuuuuut I think I am better than I used to be at reigning in some of my more ridiculous tendencies. (I mean, not all of them. But some of them.)

*They are not, like, Things That Offend Me. Just, overwhelmingly, Things I Do Not Ship, mixed in with a few things that I do ship with summaries that aren't catching me. Although I did find one Lena and Winn friendship story that I like so far, and there are a few Alex and Kara stories that look promising too.

so I guess that's a real thing then

So I have been marathoning Supergirl, right. And there have been a handful of guest stars where I'm like "this person looks familiar, they probably stabbed someone on another show I watch." So, two episodes from the end of season two I finally read the credits and realize that the guy who plays Mon-El did indeed murder a bunch of people on another show, but (for real) on Supergirl he sometimes wears glasses so I didn't recognize him.

I hate my job

But I hate it a lot less when my closing shifts don't run an hour and a half over our scheduled time, which has not happened in a very long time. It's a fucking miracle.

I wrote a thing!

Well, actually I wrote a thing a few weeks ago but then for some reason I only posted it on FFN. So I went today to go post it on AO3 and then remembered why I'd only posted in on FFN in the first place, because I was having more anxiety over the tags than I felt 1500 words of no plot fic required at one in the morning, and then by the next morning I'd forgotten all about it.

(My dilemma was that I felt like I had too many relationship tags for the number of words in the story, because there were three people functioning as a friendship unit but also they are friends in unit of two and then suddenly there were a lot of tags which became kind of overwhelming, because my brain is not a brain that functions well with unlimited options and it took a minute to decide that fuck it, I have seen stories that did a worse job of tagging.)

The Prime Time Madness 2017 collection is open. You can scroll through all the works and use the sorting buttons to find what you are looking for (by title, date updated, word count, hits - both by highest and lowest, etc). If you are looking for something specific, there is also searching by tags.

Writers, either you can hold off on replying back to comments until after author reveals on July 14th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

The Prime Time Madness 2017 collection will be opened at 10 am Eastern. Any sized fics can be uploaded to this collection with the main collection closed.

If you haven't forward dated and want to, here's some information about it.

I'll also be sharing fic links from the collections to tumblr via the NPT tumblr in order to bring more eyeballs to fics. The spotlight will be random (probably a fic at the beginning of the alphabet and a fic at the end of the alphabet and work my way to the middle from both sides).

Author reveals are July 14th.

The stories are up and raring to be read at Not Prime Time 2017. A very special thank you to our pinch hitters for helping us open on time. If you see some fics unrevealed, give it some time as AO3 does it in batches.

You can scroll through all the works and use the sorting buttons to find what you are looking for (by title, date updated, word count, hits - both by highest and lowest, etc). If you are looking for something specific, there is also searching by tags.

Writers, either you can hold off on replying back to comments until after author reveals on July 14th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

With the main collection open, all treats, no matter the size, are to be uploaded in our Prime Time Madness 2017 collection. This collection opens July 12th.

If you find anything wrong or suspicious in the collection, please email or comment on the post so I can investigate when I get back home later tonight.

Enjoy reading!

The main collection is currently on time to open on the 11th at 10 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones) as I leave early.

If you have more than one gift waiting for you and you want to know if you were double assigned or if those are treats, you can email to find out which fic is which at notprimetime AT voiceofserenity DOT com.

While the collection is still unrevealed, since these fics are in medium (or bigger) fandoms, chances are those fics won't be on the front page of said fandom. As an option, if you'd like, go ahead and forward date your fic (discretion is advised) once the collection opens/it's already the 11th in your timezone. This way your fic is on your fandom's front page when the collection opens. Otherwise, when the fics are revealed, it probably won't get any foot traffic from people checking out new fics in the fandom because it'll be a few if not more pages back.

To do this, you'll need to edit your fic and scroll down until you reach the Associations box. Towards the end of that box is a ticky box for "Set a different publication date." Ticky it to set the date to July 10th, July 11th or some other date. Then scroll all the way down to click on Post Without Preview.

Good luck!

Collection opening on the 11th

The main collection is currently on time to open on the 11th at 10 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones) as I leave early.

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2017 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2017 collection. After the main collection opens, any size fics can be placed into the madness collection.

If you are having some difficulty in coming up with tags for your story, here are some questions that might be helpful. Tags are not mandatory and you can take or leave the suggestion below. This is only meant for those who want to tag, but don't know what to tag.

What kind of story is it? (Fluffy, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Character Study, etc)
Is it an AU? (There are several different type of Alternate Universe canonical tags)
Did you write about a threesome? (Specific types of threesome are canonical tags as well as just the regular Threesome tag)
Did you write porn? (There are plenty of canonical tags for various sexual acts)
What kind of relationship do your characters have with each other? (Friendship, Rivals, Siblings, Developing Relationship, etc)
What do your characters do? (There are plenty of canonical tags for events/situations)

If none of these sound like they could fit your story, there is always the option of refreshing the Random Tags page to see what pops up.
