The default deadline is a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card. In order to default, you press the default button on AO3 for the assignment. If you do this before the default deadline, there are no penalty strikes or any consequences for defaulting.

Defaulting after the default deadline (but with notification by using the AO3 button and before works are due) results in one penalty strike. Penalty strikes are explained here:

Defaulting with no warning/usage of the AO3 default button, whereby I wake up the day after the deadline, and there is no work/an incomplete work sitting in the AO3 collection from you, results in a permanent ban from the exchange.

The works due deadline is when Otter and Ferret works are due for the exchange, if one has not previously defaulted.

I hope that was helpful! Please let me know if you have any further questions! :D
