[tumblr.com profile] bathtimefunduck gave us this gem:

The female body literally cannot carry a child to full development. It would kill us. We’re more like… game developers at Ubisoft— we kick the product out before it’s ready and hope we can work out the bugs to make them playable as they get older.

We have another pinch hit. Thank you to everyone who has claimed one of these so far! Please reply with your AO3 username to claim it. All comments to this post are screened.

This pinch hit is due on 29 April. ETA - claimed! Thank you for the quick response!

Pinch Hit #8: DCU (Comics), Dollhouse, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), Game of Thrones (TV), Death Stranding RPF - CLAIMED )


As a general reminder, the deadline to default without penalty is 1 April. On 2 April, we'll put up a check-in post where we'll ask you to confirm that you're still committed to the exchange, and that mandatory check-in will run until 8 April. Assignments are due on 29 April.
17 March 2017 14:41 - Photobucket
karzilla: a green fist above the word SMASH! (Default)
Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

Authors are revealed, thus ending the first Het Swap Exchange!

Thank you to all the participants, pinch hitters, mods from other exchanges who gave me directions/handholding through my first modding experience, and the biggest thanks goes to [personal profile] thedevilchicken who was my hero during nominations and helped turned what was an unwieldy tagset I almost couldn't go through alone into something we could easily manage together.

Hopefully I see you guys next year for round two!

To claim, comment on this post with your AO3 username; all comments are screened. If you get it as an assignment, you got the pinch hit; if not but you see it's been claimed, then someone else got it instead, sorry. (But do consider treating!)

At this stage, the due date for the pinch hit will be the same as other works: Sat 1st Apr 06:59 UTC. (This has always been intended as the equivalent of midnight Pacific time on Fri 31st March, but let me know if I've messed up accounting for DST.)

Pinch Hit #4 - Fandoms: His Dark Materials, Lock In, Guild Wars 2, Zootopia, Secret World of Alex Mack - Claimed! )

12 March 2017 16:23 - Donor Siblings
were_duck: Alana from Saga in a soldier suit sitting on a rocket, blowing bubblegum and reading a book (Bubblegum Alana)
I just want to post about raising a kid created by embryo adoption, and connecting with his donor siblings, because it's sort of wild and outside of my experience otherwise. I'd love to hear the perspectives of other parents who have decided for or against knowing other children created from the same donor(s) as yours.

A small ramble about donor siblings, including a small bit about IVF processes )

I dunno. It's cool and it also feels a little weird, but whatever. Everything about parenting is like that so far.
