We already filled the first post of the season. Have a new one here

God bless you, heavensqueen.

I try to keep you all as happy as I can :)

Naomi Novik is Astolat

(Anonymous)
Even if she got rejected as a character we could still request CC, EL James and then ask for NN in the options as an additional character.
I'll offer to write that.
and yes, I spend way to much time thinking about it too</strike>

Re: Naomi Novik is Astolat

(Anonymous)
She got rejected as a character? Seriously?

How fucking hypocritical. She could've just asked potential writers not to mention her fandom name in the story.

Discworld

(Anonymous)
Is in. Don't know how or why, but it is in.

Whew. And my fandoms are finally all reviewed.

Re: Discworld

(Anonymous)

How do you game yuletide?

(Anonymous)
Other than 'I have a sock', obviously. We're all socks down here.

What are your tricks? What are you planning for this round of requests/offers? What have you tried before and did it work?

Re: How do you game yuletide?

(Anonymous)
I'm not a sock, I'm a coalie!

I've never gamed. I don't know how. Wish I did because I only got a treat once my first year from a friend who wanted the excuse to finish a fic she'd been working on for a while.

I just want people to like the things I like and want to write about them too :(

Another Update

(Anonymous)
And a few fandoms got reinstated:

Fandoms:

Thunderbirds – tv or movie?
Eventuality - Trevor Samora – we have been unable to find this.
Hafez (14th Century Poet) - the characters nommed appear to be real people – is this supposed to be a rpf fandom with three characters, or Hafez – Works?
I Want You Bad (song) - there seem to be several songs of this name. Which one was intended?

Characters we have been unable to identify:

Fresne - Marie de France – Conrad
Now and Again - Rachel Wiseman
Valentine (2008) - Tucker Flumsbach

Reinstated fandoms

If you nommed these, please tell us with which characters:
Fast and Furious series
Final Fantasy XIII-2

Unseen Academicals: when this was merged into Discworld, we think some of the characters nominated went missing. Please can you confirm the characters nommed.

Fandom Challenges

I believe we have have looked at all the challenges posted on the previous posts, and reinstated the above fandoms.

I don't understand this. Why do they need to know who the characters are? Isn't it enough that the person wanting the fandom nominated them? If it's a disambiguation thing, why don't they just add teh fandom in brackets to the name like they've done for every other fandom? No wonder it's taking them so long to be done when they're busy second guessing everyone's nominations.

Another exchange that's going on right now: my assignment's for someone who's never commented on any of her previous gifts and hasn't included any details in her sign up, not even characters. Probably defaulting because I'm a special snowflake who needs acknowledgement.

You could say it here and get someone else to report it for you now. At this stage, it's still preeettty anonymous.

Coal-shovelers

(Anonymous)
I can't request a couple of fandoms I love because Wanky McWankerton is known for writing them.

So I'm offering them instead, and if I match W McW, going to wallow in the coal, post, and orphan.

Note: if I match someone else, I will try to write genuinely good fic, because I do love these fandoms. But W McW is a fucktart of the highest degree and deserves it.

...anyone else fantasize about shoveling coal at wook77, Untherius, or other wankers?

Haha, on the new post, someone just called out the mods on their ~lol let's wiki it~ attitude.

Make your bets on what will happen:

1) The mods won't reply at all.
2) They'll reply, but make up some excuse.
3) Banhammer time!
4) OTHER

Re: She/he said what we're all thinking

(Anonymous)
1) The mods won't reply. The tag will be quietly changed to incorporate movies. The never-used name will be left in.

Gah

Signups need to start just so people will start posting their letters! I want to start treat-writing before my hours double at work for the holiday season :(

Am I going crazy, coalies? I swear I was just reading a thread about overlap between coal and #yuletide, and now I can't find it. Was it in this post or the last post or was it in some other community or did I read it in my dreams? Someone mentioned a chat where someone was planning to [graphic vagina TMI]break their hymen with scissors and I don't think I would have imagined that on my own.

You followed the link posted under the True Story thread to here:
http://yuletide-coal.livejournal.com/2947.html?thread=1960323#t1960323

And then parented up to read the whole thread (which is an old post from last year.) I know because I did the same thing.

What Would Coal Have Done

(Anonymous)
A hypothetical while we wait for the tag set to open:

My first Yuletide I offer two characters and got matched to someone who requested Any. They made it clear in their sign ups that their favorite characters were two minor characters whose storyline had bored me to tears on the show which is why I didn't offer them but they were also okay with fic about any of the main characters except, naturally, the two I offered.

What would you have done?

Re: What Would Coal Have Done

(Anonymous)
I woulda hit that default button so fast my ears rang and then spent the rest of Yuletide writing treats. No time or patience for people who request Any but don't actually mean Any. Fuck that noise.

I only have a day off once in a blue moon. Somehow I managed to get two days of this week, and I'd wanted to use the time to thoroughly go through the nominations list, but now my time is almost up and I'm sad that I'm probably just going to have to use my own nominations and my usual fallback fandoms instead of possibly finding new ones.

You can see the last nominations list that was put up here http://fail-fandomanon.livejournal.com/68112.html?thread=322129680#t322129680 (obviously incomplete but it's something)

What???!

(Anonymous)
Generally, what has been going on is that the archive is moving to using original scripts for new fandom tags, but not yet changing all the already existing canonical tags. We have been trying to follow this in the approving of fandoms - using canonicals where the existed, but adding to the new tags; however some might have slipped through without it.

Now, this ain't even a little bit true.

Re: What???!

(Anonymous)
I saw that and did a wtf myself. I'd love to see where that's been said and if any tag wranglers can confirm that.

so how much interaction with your author post-reveal is too much? that is at what point does it become creepy?

asking because reasons. anecdotes welcome.

It's okay to reply to their comments to your comments, but when they stop replying or give you a reply with no openings for conversation, let it go. It's okay to subscribe to their fic if you like the writing style, and leave comments on their fic. It's bordering creepy to subscribe to their blog and comment on entries about their life or politics or whatever.

worried newbie is worried

(Anonymous)
I want to write porn for one of the tiny fandoms I'm requesting for Yuletide. Really nasty, dirty, morally questionable, possibly dub-con BDSM porn for a fandom with less than a dozen fics on A03, and none of them are above a mature rating.

I want to get it out of my system so that I won't be disappointed by a squeaky clean story for YT, but I'm scared of terrifying the poor writer who stalks my profile. I'm already leaning pretty dark in my letter (I included outs, but since it's a dark canon, most of my requests are according). I could wind up making a smut writer really happy, but I don't want to make it seem like I'm lying about being okay with PG gen, either.

Re: worried newbie is worried

(Anonymous)
You're fine. Honestly. What someone can and wants to write *does not equal* what they always wants to read, and if your writer is stalking your profile with that in mind, they are acting neurotic in a way you cannot affect.

I suppose one thing you could do is make sure that your "outs" are detailed. As in,

"I'd like [dark scenario] but you don't have to write it if you don't want to" - not super helpful

"I'd like [dark scenario] but if you don't feel like going dark, [lighter scenario] would also interest me." - more helpful.
