Welcome to Treat Yo Self, an exchange where you are your own recipient! Treat Yo Self matches you to a cheerleader, a person who can encourage you, beta your work, brainstorm with you, be excited about your work during the lonely drudge of creating your first draft, or anything else.

This year the AO3 comm can be found here.

The timeline is this:
Creator signups: 24 May - 3 June
Cheerleader signups: 3 June - 10 June
Archive goes live: 22 July.

And that's time! How did you all go completing your assignments? Did you manage to finish your outstanding work? Did you make progress on it? Any and all progress on your work is laudable, so well done!

We have some completed works over in our AO3 collection, and if you hosted your completed work elsewhere you can leave a link in a comment here too!

The due date for your assignment (to you) is fast approaching! Due to circumstances out of my control, the due date is going to be 9am EST, 21 July 2017. Sorry about the delayed opening, but personal emergencies come at inconvenient times!

How are you all going with creating? Cheerleading going well? We're about a month out from the due date of our pseudo-exchange, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you have all created!

Talking about cheerleading, we are so close to getting all works cheerled. Please take a look and see if there's anything you can help cheerlead. Tell your friends! Your family! Your pet, if your pet is very cute! One last push and I think we can cover them all.

Feel free to boast in the comments about how much creating you've done! You do not have to be anonymous about your work (though of course you can be if you want the complete exchange experience). This applies even if your work hasn't been claimed yet. We're all in this together, so let's share our good news and progress!

Now that we've all had a week to look at the works, we're moving to first in best dressed. You can claim any work and I will allocate it to you immediately. There are no restrictions on number, and you do not have to be a participant (yet) to claim one of these. Just willing and able!

All comments are screened, so if you're interested, please copy the text in the textbox below and fill it in to claim your work!

This is the cheerleader sign up post!

If you are an author who signed up, left an email address and did not say you did not want a cheerleader and your work is not here, please email me at treatyoselfmod[at]gmail immediately so that I can add you in.

Matching will take place as follows:
  1. You list the works that you wish to cheerlead, in order (and preferably down the page) as well as noting how many works you want to cheerlead in total.
  2. At the end of the signup period I will go down the list and allocate people according to their preferences. If Person #1, Person #2, and Person #5 all want Work A, and then Work B, Person #1 and Person #5 will be allocated to Work A, and Person #2 will be allocated to Work B. No one else will be able to be allocated to Work A, but one more person can be allocated to Work B.
  3. If by the time I come to a signup where all of their requested works have been claimed before their comment, I will contact them and ask if there are any other works that they want out of the unclaimed ones.
  4. If all works are claimed and there are still cheerleaders to be matched I will match more than 2 cheerleaders to a work.

There are 51 works in need of a cheerleader, so if you are interested in cheerleading, please comment to this post with the following information! All comments are screened.

This is the post for all creators to sign up! This post is to collect the following information:

  • AO3 Name - so that we have something to call you;
  • Email address - so that I have a means of communication with you. You do not have to use email to communicate with your cheerleader(s), but I do need an email address so that I can tell you who you've been matched to!
  • Fandom for work - this can be a fandom, original work, crossover, or something else.
  • Characters/Ships
  • Media - there are no restrictions on media
  • Summary - what is the work about? This is not a summary for the work as you'd see on a final work on AO3 but more general. You can describe what you intend to create with reference to tropes, concepts, ideas etc, with as much or as little detail as you think appropriate. Please do not however make reference to already published works you've done (such as "this is the second instalment of my series X") in this summary.

Please do one comment for each story! It's easier for me for matching purposes later.

Any questions, drop them in the FAQ, or send me an email at treatyoselfmod@gmail.com. Signups are open until 11:59pm EST on 3 June.

Now comment! Sign up! Tell your friends! And if anyone is able to do up a banner for me, that would be greatly appreciated and you will be credited for it.

EDIT: Also, because it slipped my mind - if you don't want a cheerleader, please say so in your signup somewhere.

What is it?
Treat Yo Self is an exchange designed to reduce your backlog. Creators signup with works that they want to work on, and then are matched to someone who is interested in helping them. You create for six weeks, and then the archive is revealed with your work(s). Simple!

What fandoms are eligible?
All of them. There are absolutely no restrictions on what you can put here. Fandoms, characters, sentient or non-sentient objects, there are no restrictions.

What media is eligible?
All of them.

Are crossovers okay?

What about original fic?
Also okay.

Are there any penalties for defaulting?
None. You're your own recipient, after all.

Are there any restrictions on size of works?
Nope. No size restrictions.

Can it be a WIP?
Sure! The only restriction is that it has to be in your backlog for creating.

How will signups work?
Creators will comment to a post outlining generally what their works are about. After the window for creator signups close, I will post the summaries and open it up for cheerleaders to rank which ones they want to cheerlead. From those rankings, I will assign people together. A work can have a maximum of two cheerleaders. If someone is unmatchable for whatever reason then I will post them as a "pinch hit" to garner more attention.

Do I need a cheerleader?
Nope. So long as you're having fun, that's what matters.

Can I bring my own cheerleader?

Will there be weekly posts so that you can talk about your works?
Yes! Anonymity doesn't apply so you can be as open about your work as you like. We're all here to support you treating yourself, after all!

Any other questions, drop them in the comments!
