I signed up for this one because ShipSwap was too far away and I wanted to keep the good yuletide buzz going, but the 300 word count kind of scares me. I usually write longer stuff (I mean, not epic, but more than 1000), and I had no idea how to even prompt for stuff that short!

Standard Deadline is few hours away, how are you doing? I vented about my assignment on ff_a, so I don't wish to talk about it here too, and now that I'm done with it I'm quite happy with the gift for my recipient. Hopefully they'll love it too.

On a different note, if you wish to sign up as pinch hitter, please comment on this post, you can write down 'any fandoms' instead of only the ones you are willing to pinch hit in (because it's easier than doing a list of your fandoms), media, and an email. Comments are screened:

Are replies to comments way down

(Anonymous) 2016-01-14 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
Or is it just me?

I got four gifts this yuletide - all of which I commented on obvs - but not a single one of the four authors has replied.

I'm definitely NOT hardline 'authors must reply to comments'. I really don't care if you do or don't. But I guess I do kind of expect it for gift fics, since that has always been the norm in my experience. But four out of four is pretty conclusive that it's a dying trend... (Turns out my femslashex writer didn't reply, either. Interesting!)

Re: Are replies to comments way down

(Anonymous) 2016-01-14 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
I noticed that too. This is a new special level of exchange anxiety for me because I think they must have hated writing my fic and don't want to think about it again even to reply.

NYR?

(Anonymous) 2016-01-14 04:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Is Morbane (or whoever) not going to post NYR updates to the LJ community this year? I thought it was a great way to keep track of what was being posted, so I'm a bit disappointed if they're not gonna do it anymore.

Also, a question: If I write a sequel to my YT fic, should I post it in the NYR collection? Or should I just post it normally, gifted to my recipient (maybe that would come off as weird, IDK)?

Re: NYR?

Re: Things to Nominate - M/M office romances

Because I'm thinking ahead (to distract myself from current assignments), I'm trying to think about what to nominate for M/M rares, Night on Fic Mountain, Not Prime Time etc this year.

And after watching The Big Short, I find myself with a sudden strange craving for slightly awkward M/M office/co-worker romances: accountants, bankers, personal assistants, politicians, lawyers, news anchors? Are there any good rare/obscure canons or pairings for this? Any recs welcome.

Multi fandom prompt fests

Wish there were more of them. Various themes, perhaps? H/C, A/U, crossover, porn, in space, apocalypse, vampire, etc.

SpaceSwap will do this if they can't find a co-mod.

Does anyone know if requests will be revealed after sign-ups are closed? There's a book I might be able to write treats for, but it doesn't look like there's a letters post.

Writing For Something You Didn't Match On

(Anonymous) 2016-01-22 05:58 am (UTC)(link)
Have you ever done this? Been tempted to?

Re: Writing For Something You Didn't Match On

(Anonymous) 2016-01-22 06:00 am (UTC)(link)
If I match to someone who has a canon I also know besides what we matched on or that's a fandom I've thought about getting into at one point, usually I end up writing for that fandom over the one we matched on 6 out of 10 times.

Treat Only, Treat Often

(Anonymous) 2016-01-24 10:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm eyeing some upcoming exchanges and finding myself going, "I don't really care to get any of this stuff... but it'd be fun to write!" And I know some people who hang around _coal have done no-signup, treat-only approaches to Yuletide some years.

So, how did that work out for people who have? Do you end up having more fun (no obligation! don't care about what you're getting!) or does it end up feeling like no reward for the effort? Or do you not get anything done because there's no actual deadline? I've got a while yet to decide, so I might as well get the informed, measured opinion on exchange etiquette and strategy that _coal always provides.

Re: Treat Only, Treat Often

(Anonymous) 2016-01-24 10:33 pm (UTC)(link)
It depends on who you treat, ime. If you treat someone who leaves squee, long comments, or a thoughtful poignant comment of any length, or the sweet trifecta of all three, it can be better than signing up.

If you treat someone who leaves "Thanks! This was great!" or is known not to comment at all, it definitely wears on you pretty quickly. I only treat those types of people if its for a prompt I'm really excited to write anyway and so posting it feels like the climax of my writing expirence rather than feedback, or if its for a fandom/pairing thats big enough that at least some other person will comment, although in those cases I consider it as 'treating the fandom' rather than that person.

Would not reccomend doing so for a small fandom or small pairing thay you are mostly writing on the shortlived high that OMG SOMEBODY ELSE CARES ABOUT XYZ! because that feeling fades real quick if you get a short comment or no comment and you get mad at yourself for not writing the other small fandom/pairing you like. Because the recip in that fandom will of course leave three comments and it will turn out that 9 other people also know it and leave nice comments. Writers remorse to the highest degree will become what haunts you at night.

Spread yourself around and write as many treats as possible if you're doing the treat only route. More than 3 as a minimum, but 4+ is the sweetspot. All your happiness when doing treat-only depends on other people being happy so to have the ultimate positive expirence, you will want to have your hands in as many baskets as possible. 5 really great reactions out of 8 fics total feels a lot more triumphant than 1 out of 4 even if at the end of the day they're basically the same ratio. The mind is annoying like that.

Re: Once Upon A Fic

Loved it! Received excellent fic, wrote treats, got lots of comments on what I wrote. Though it's multifandom, people are familiar with lots of the fandoms so seemed to read widely.

Fanfic Writing Limits List

(Anonymous) 2016-02-03 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
Reynardo posted this to the Yuletide comm:

http://reynardo.livejournal.com/584010.html

A list of color-codes for what kinks you're asking for in Yuletide, so you don't make your writer feel bad by spelling things out clearly. Or whatever.

They're getting some very polite disagreement in the comments and some serious eye-rolling over at FFA.
