Here’s this year’s schedule:

Sign-up opens: Monday, November 9, 2015, 9.00am UTC
Sign-up closes: Sunday, November 22, 2015, 9.00am UTC
Assignments given: by Saturday, November 28, 2015

Works revealed: Sunday, January 17, 2016, 9.00am UTC

Please note that this year’s assignments will be due at 4.00pm EST (9.00pm UTC) on a Sunday, instead of 11.59pm EST on a Saturday. This is so that I can be online right before and after the deadline (I live in the UK, five hours ahead of the Eastern time zone, and AO3 requires collections to be manually opened and closed). I tried to come up with a schedule that would work for people in North America too, but if the new times are likely to be problematic for anyone, let me know!
(Okay, it's over!)
Both the Blue Christmeth and Blue Christmeth Madness collections are now revealed and closed. Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and extra thanks to our fabulous pinch-hitters Sylvestris and warriorpoet! Between the two collections, we created a total of 31 fabulous new Breaking Bad fanworks this holiday season. Yeah, bitches!
Now that the collection is unanonymous, you're all welcome to repost your work on other sites! I hope everyone had a wonderful Blue Christmeth!
PS sorry for sending out duplicate gift messages, I accidentally closed and reopened the collection while I was trying to un-anonymize it WHOOPS.
Blue Christmeth 2014 is now open for business! Everything was ready to go, and I know AO3 can sometimes add a little delay after we click “reveal,” so I revealed the collection a little early. You might not have gotten an AO3 Gift Notification yet, but you can look under “Gifts” on your dashboard when you’re logged into AO3 to find your gift. Or you can go to the main collection page and browse all the great gifts!
Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and extra thanks to our heroic pinch-hitters! Which reminds me—please make sure to leave a comment thanking your Blue Christmeth Dealer! Even on the off-chance that you don’t totally love whatever they created for you, remember: someone made it just for you, and they’re waiting anxiously for your feedback :)
Also, there’s still another week to submit treats to Blue Christmeth Madness!
How's everybody doing? 9 of you delightful dealers have already delivered their completed products and are hopefully celebrating with a well-deserved beverage! The rest of you: you have until midnight (EST) on Saturday the 10th! (What time is that for me?)
If you're new to AO3 exchanges, here's a great tutorial about how to submit gifts. (It was put together by our pals at secretmutant so you'll have to mentailly substitute "Blue Christmeth" for "Secret Mutant" and "Breaking Bad" for "X-Men" but all the basic steps are the same.)
If you know you won't be finished by the deadline, please email us at bluechristmethmods at gmail.com to default!
If you have any other questions, email or leave a comment.
Also, I'm getting Blue Christmeth Madness put together tonight, so look for a post about that soon.
