Ao3 Invite Code?

Hey, I was wondering if anyone has a spare invite code? I was gonna get one closer to sign-ups, but I want to do swaps and just realized they close tomorrow.

Do you need one to sign up to swaps?

And you can just email the mods

Letter Examples?

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
https://yuletide-coal.dreamwidth.org/3513.html?thread=12673977#cmt12673977

Not the OP here, but I'm looking for example letters of that kind, that give prompts for the requested, nominated characters and optional, non-pushy just-in-case prompts that might include unnominated characters.
I like this idea but I am wondering what it looks like in an actual letter. To quote:

"I'm happy with fic with A, B, C and D, but you can also write me about E,F,G or H." (NOT "I want EFGH, but only ABCD are in the tagset.")

Re: Letter Examples?

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
I think that's a fine way to phrase it. "I chose A and B for ease of matching, but I also love A's relationship with C and E&F's shenanigans picking widgets is one of my favorite parts of canon, and I've got such a crush on H."

I'm sorry. On the one hand, it seems like it may have been an honest mistake. On the other hand, it's a lot easier for us if we work with what we're given and don't accept this kind of request at this stage. The characters were nominated under Discworld; Discworld is ineligible. Perhaps next year?


Yessss! The Discworld stans have been unbearably whiny this year. I hope that the half brain who didn't understand the very simple rules feels bad.

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
Especially given how much they whined about the "unfairness" of other fandoms being able to split their canons, when it turns out they fucked up their own nomination and could have done exactly what they were complaining about not being allowed to do, they just didn't do it.

Why do people keep commenting on the corrections post with "[x] fandom has 0 characters"? The answer to it every time is "[x] fandom was nominated that way."

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
Because there are a huge number of morons involved in this exchange. We have seen overwhelming evidence of that today.

A short appeals period

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
I would love it if there was a short appeals period - maybe one or two days - in which mods and participants worked together after the tagset was revealed in order to resolve any honest mistakes/misunderstanding.

Chinese Actor RPF could easily be changed into [movie] RPF, I believe. Monstrous Regiment could easily be separated out on its own. Other changes like these - where the nominator had a small, honest misunderstanding - could be handled with little effort from the mods.

This would, I feel, be in the spirit of Yuletide. Why keep out a clearly eligible fandom? I don't think such an appeals period would be abused, if it was made clear that it was for small things.

Re: A short appeals period

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
That would be great! As long as it was clear that the period was for clearing up nominations that have (in some form) been made and not adding completely new ones I don't see a downside.

To be less mysterious, OP is linking to a thread in the Dreamwidth challenge post, in which an anonymous person challenged the inclusion of "First Out Gay Player on an Active Roster" in NFL RPF and said it shouldn't be allowed if Clyde Tombaugh wasn't allowed in Epic Rap Battles.

OP links to the mod decision, which is to remove the NFL RPF nomination.

No, fics, no tags, all alone

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
So, who's requesting a fandom with 0 fics in it this year? Anyone ended up requesting only 0 fic fandoms?

Re: No, fics, no tags, all alone

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 05:08 am (UTC)(link)
One of my requests has no fic. Another only has a couple fics that I wrote. I highly doubt that I'll get either of those for Yuletide but one never knows!

this seems weird to me

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 06:44 am (UTC)(link)
I went to the tags post to complain about the Simon Snow nomination, but someone already did and they're not changing it. It seems really weird to me that they're letting in a nomination for a canon that doesn't exist. Fangirl exists, Carry On exists, but the Simon Snow series doesn't.

Re: this seems weird to me

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 10:01 am (UTC)(link)
Disagree. There are plenty of fiction-within-fictions that count as fandoms. Eg: the manga inside gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun

# of fics in fandoms you plan to request

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 07:13 am (UTC)(link)
I liked this game when we played it last year. List the # of fics in each of the fandoms you're planning to request.

For me:
0
3
24
30
51
535

Re: # of fics in fandoms you plan to request

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 07:22 am (UTC)(link)
Mine are:

0
0
17
927 (for this one, my nightmare is matching to someone who wants to write gen instead of the rarepair I'll be requesting)

Wow, that's some hardcore tone-deafness: "all of these people became (in)famous because of and only of their actions in WWII, in the same way that the characters nominated in "Punic Wars RPF" are still known today."

What's your offer system?

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 12:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I go through the tag set and find everything I know and am interested in. Then, I take that list and whittle it down to things I currently have easy access to - that usually leaves me with roughly 20 fandoms. When letters come out I dig through all the ones with those fandoms on my list to get a general vibe of what people are asking for, and whittle it down even more. If there's still too many, then I sit and debate deep issues, like 'Requester Squee Levels', 'Personal Squee Levels', 'Size of Canon Consumption', 'Size of Fandom', and 'Could it be Wanky'. Unless the answers are all 'High', 'High', 'Small/Moderate', 'Small/Moderate', and 'I Hope So' then it doesn't pass the bar.

Changing your mind

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 12:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I nominated a fandom, but having (finally) written my letter I've decided not to actually request it - I realised I couldn't actually think of any prompts I was excited about. Anybody else changed their minds about requests or offers so far this season?

I'm glad I wrote my letter before sign-ups opened now!

Re: Changing your mind

I might give up one fandom I nommed in case another related fandom from same umbrella doesn't pass. Not that I don't want fic in it, but my desires there are rather specific, plus I nommed A,B,C,D and while I wouldn't mind seeing all four in same fic, it would take a lot of work, and I only have concrete ideas for A+/B, A/+C or B/+D. Actually, A+D or C+D interacting (or even shipped) would be interesting, but I have no prompt for author (except one for C+D I saw in fic in non-English language, but it's cracky). And they'd need it, because almost all of these combos require serious canon divergence. In "risky" fandom, I at least have one 100% canon-compliant request, and I might want the fic in it slightly more than spare fandom.

I've never seen the anime but I'm curious as to how they translated plots based on sex and rape and other fun stuff like that into a pg-13 anime and accomplished it in such a way that "they are not considered significantly different canons".

Letter writing woes

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 03:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Bleh, I don't remember letter writing being this hard before. Everything I write sounds! over! enthusiastic! about! everything! (to compensate for sounding overly judgy before).

And I can't seem to phrase my prompts in an understandble way. Also, I have like 15 prompts for one fandom and struggle to come up with more than 2 for another.

And I'd love to have a system for how I phrase my prompts but for one fandom the prompts turned into mini-essays while for another it's just a bunch of questions and for a third all the prompts are super short.

Whine, whine.

Anyone who wants to whine with me?

Re: Letter writing woes

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 03:38 pm (UTC)(link)
I feel you, coalie.

I spent like three hours earlier trying to work out how to describe exactly the kind of trope-y fic I like, without sounding like I was being too prescriptive or limiting. Still not sure what I've written makes sense. I know people laugh at the idea of beta-ing letters, but this is the first year I've been tempted to ask somebody to...

how to make your DNWs sound different

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I am signing up with my main account and two dentists. However, all my DNWs are the same (duh) and I'm wondering how to make it sound different each time I write them out in a letter.

Re: how to make your DNWs sound different

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 06:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Put one list in alphabetical order. Put the other list in order from "least extreme" to "most extreme."

Use synonyms. On one, you might list:

Scat
Piss
Vomit

On another you might list:

Scat/Watersports/Emetophilia

Secret Wars

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Did anyone nominate any titles that got rejected? Planet Hulk was the only one I saw in the tagset that said "Secret Wars", so I'm curious since it seemed like a lot of people had concerns about it. I don't know a lot about comics so I don't know if there are other Secret Wars things that don't say "Secret Wars" specifically.

Re: Secret Wars

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Nope, there aren't as many as I thought we'd see considering all the hullabaloo last month. The only other Secret Wars limited run I see in the tagset is 1872. Plus there are ongoing comics, like Silk and Ms. Marvel, which are connected to the event through their Last Days issues -- not to get into that whole thing again, because I'm sick and tired of it by this point.

fandoms you're excited for

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
what fandoms have you spotted in the tagset that you're excited to see fic for, whether or not you're planning to request/offer them yourself?

Re: fandoms you're excited for

(Anonymous) 2015-10-14 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm pretty excited for Hamilton RPF. It didn't even occur to me during nominations, but I really hope someone does write fic. I may even treat it, if I can get past my writing-RPF-of-internet-savvy-people nervousness.

Aja drops some hot content: fandoms with the most characters nominated

I personally am surprised (pleasantly so) by the number for The Americans, though considering the fandom's history with YT, I'm skeptical that it will turn into lots of fic.

The Gwen nominators also might object to those scare quotes.
