We tried bolding things, but basically everything in this post is important. Please, please read it, even if you’re an old hat and you’re sure you have Yuletide sign-ups down pat.

Important Links and Deadlines


  • Sign-ups are open until Sunday 26 October 6pm UTC. (Remember this is not EST - check the links if you are not clear on what time it is for you! What time is that for me? And here is a countdown).

  • The link to sign up is here. If you have already signed up, you can use the same link to view and edit your details.

  • Here is the tag set of all fandoms and characters nominated for Yuletide.

  • swan_tower has put together a links round-up on the Yuletide member community. Check that out for other items of interest!


Bugs


  • Some characters from the tag set are not appearing in the sign-up form’s autocomplete. Copying and pasting the tag from the tag set will work. Remember to check the tag set if you are considering offering Any or requesting 0 characters.

  • The Additional Tags field allows you to enter tags that are not fandoms. Do NOT do this. It won't do you any good, and just causes potential delays.

  • Occasionally signups or tags duplicate. We will delete any duplicate signups before matching starts.


A Note About “Any”


The rules around offering and requesting “any” characters can be confusing for new and experienced participants.

Asking for 0 characters in a fandom: If you leave the character field blank when requesting a fandom, the writer who matches with you may have offered any nominated character, and will expect to write a story about the characters they have offered. This means that it does not work to leave the character field blank and say, “I’d only like a story about the ladies,” or “I’d only like a story about the younger generation.” If your writer has offered the dudes or the older characters, you are setting up a situation in which you may both be unhappy! In this case, a requester would be better off selecting their favourite character(s) to match on, and then telling their writer in the optional details if there were other (nominated) characters that would make them equally happy.

You can ask for 0 characters and worldbuilding, but this is an Optional Detail (which is Optional) and you are not guaranteed to receive it.

Offering Any characters in a fandom: This means that you may be asked to write about any character, or combination of 2-4 characters, that have been nominated for the fandom you are offering. Check the tag set; the drop-down menu in the sign-up form may be incomplete or misleading.

Optional Details Character Reminder


Demanding, or implying that you'd only be happy with characters you did not request in optional details is not allowed. Consider how you would feel if you got an assignment that was for a character you have avoided offering. Remember that Yuletide is supposed to be fun for everyone involved.

Letters on AO3


Please do not post your letter as a work on AO3. This is against the archive rules and these are being removed by Abuse. You can put your letter in your profile there, if you want to.

Offers and the Sign-Up Summary


Here is the sign-up summary. This shows all the fandoms that have been requested, and the number of offers each has. Note that it does not include fandoms in a bucket offer.

Important: As sign-ups come to a close, please go to the sign-up summary and check the status of the fandoms you are offering. If none of the fandoms you are offering appears on the sign-up summary, that means no one has asked for them. That is a problem! We can run matching, and even find you a writer, if no one has offered the things you are requesting. But if you cannot write for anyone, we have to ask you to either add offers or remove your sign-up. This has to happen before assignments can be generated, and so it is especially important to consider if you are not going to be around at the end of sign-ups.

I should have known she'd never have gotten as maudlin and soppy as yesterday if it weren't her last chance. Mom the clam. Haha.

Prior to that, our last conversation was about whether she did or did not feed Puddles the duck to her niece as a child. (The niece maintains she is scarred for life. Mom maintained that she never named the ones she was going to eat, so while she may have fed her a duck, it certainly wouldn't have been Puddles.) Duck for Thanksgiving... sounds pretty good, actually.

Having visitors this weekend, but taking a break from cleaning to say:

- Flat 3 is a New Zealand webseries about three women flatting together in Auckland. Funny, well-scripted and -characterised. Episodes are mostly ~7 min long.

- The Boxtrolls was beeeyewtiful.

[personal profile] sophia_sol has posted an attempted interpretation of Oolon Colluphid Was Right! You should all go there and join the conversation so that I can continue to cackle unhelpfully in the corner.

Also, the breakaway hit from the list of bunnies in the previous post (which I am continuing to add things to, btw, as the odds of me actually winning the challenge go down....) was "Avengers Go To A Drag Ball", because apparently for some reason people think I, would, like, do it justice? ahah. ahahaha. hahahaha.

Here, for you edification, is 100% of everything I have done with that idea in the past three years, since I first came up with it (file last edited Jan 2013):



IIRC Tony's drag name was going to be Lady Natasha Touchamy, because he enjoys living dangerously. (and the Natasha is canon of course.) (Natasha's was, uh, something like Tony Tinydick? I think.)

I started sociology yesterday. I'm dropping it today. My experience with my first class yesterday was that the professor was a gaslighty, controlling asshole. Well, my experience was that I was uncomfortable and wrong-footed and not quite sure why, and when I came home and described my class to T. he went, "Uhhhhhhh...wow that's incredibly manipulative and gaslighty."

[Oct 6] [Arrow] crossing the line

Title: crossing the line while never drawing it
Day/Prompt: Oct 6, "She has a hint of the devil in her eyes."
Fandom: Arrow
Character/Pairing: Roy/Thea/Sin
Rating/Warning(s): PG; polyamory
Word Count: 1100

Posted by hhertzof

It was brought to our attention that the undisambigged Tobias Butler wasn't deleted when the disambigged tags were added. In the interest of facilitating matching, we have deleted the undisambigged tag. This had the unfortunate side effect of deleting that tag from any sign-ups that offered or requested him.

If you had offered or requested Tobias Butler, you will need to edit your sign-up to include Tobias Butler (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries) instead.

Thank you.

The Headstones have announced their new album, and the promo vid is adorable like they're revelling in... not fandom exactly, but fandomishness? Or some quality that I associate with this part of fandom, anyway. Also, it's acoustic this time, so they haven't futzed with Hugh's voice like they did on the last one. Track list )

ION, I read Ancillary Justice and enjoyed it very much and am now reading You Are Not a Gadget, which is non-fiction about the internet and humanity, and I didn't realise until I was 25% in that it was written in 2008. So. Historical document. Also, a bit more philosophy of mind than I was expecting. Still, some good stuff too, like:
The central mistake of recent digital culture is to chop up a network of individuals so finely that you end up with a mush. You then start to care about the abstraction of the network more than the real people who are networked, even though the network by itself is meaningless. Only the people were ever meaningful.
And that was written before tumblr took over the world!

Today is sunshine and zumba and lunch with a friend and physio and {The Good Wife and Kdramas} with another friend. \o/

I started My Name Is Kim Sam Soon and am not yet hooked but getting there.

You guys.

I am being really, really picky about fandoms I am willing to write this year. (Probably because I defaulted my first year because it was a canon I loved but felt compelled to review all eight books of in order to write it.)

Like, there were about 30 fandoms on my list to start with (compared to 200 the year I defaulted), and when I narrowed it down by "fandoms I would be delighted to open up the assignment for and discover I was writing, no matter what the assignment was" there were...8. And I am 100% ecstatic/thrilled by those eight, but...I feel like I'm being a diva. Or that I should add some of my "I could write this and be generally happy" fandoms in so that I'm Not Being Difficult.

Can someone tell me whether I'm setting reasonable boundaries or being overcautious? (LOL, the answer to that is "no-one but yourself," but helpful thinky thoughts for how to go about figuring out the answer to that question would be helpful!)

I'm likely to pick up pinch hits in fandoms I haven't offered, if that tips the cosmic Yuletide scales in my favor.
