I finished this recently (alas!) and I enjoyed it all. There were some duff episodes and things, but overall it was pretty great and a fun, cheering thing to be watching, and as it's an ITC thing, it should be reasonably accessible, or at least more so than most of my ancient British things.

I'll make a proper post about it, but I went YouTube hunting and came back with these, which I think give a pretty good idea about what it's like:

So, that was an enjoyable show for the summer! I will do a proper intro post sometime.

Sign ups are now open from now until August 26 10PM EDT! (Check for your time zone!)

Requests: You can make 1-10 requests with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding) each. You may request the same fandom multiple times with a different set of request items.

If you cannot find your request item in the drop down menu, do this: find your tag in the list of approved tags, copy the tag in its entirety — such as "Relationship: Matt Holt & Pidge (VLD)" — paste it in the bar, and hit enter. This is a known AO3 bug but this is the way to work around it.

Offers: You can make 1-10 offers/fandoms with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding) each. Fandoms can be offered multiple times if you are offering different sets (for example: fic for one set, art for another.) You can also offer Any for a fandom.

Letters: Letters are not mandatory but they are nice for offering details and prompts for your writer/artist and potential treaters. Letters can also be posted in the Letters post.

Optional details: This is a good place to add in any Do Not Wants that you wish for your creator to avoid in their gift as well as general likes.

Once you are ready, then head over and sign up!

Productivity is a distant dream today. So instead, I'm going to start documenting my London trip, which was amazing (A-M-A-Z-I-N-G).
