Dear Yuletide Author,

vashti on paper
Let me start by saying I love you. I really, really do. Not only are you giving up your time to give me a tailor made gift, but we're doing this together! Yes, I know that's a goofy thing to say, but part of what I love about Yuletide is the general love and buzz of the community. So just as a fellow participant, I adore you. As the person writing a story for me, my adoration goes up a notch or ten. You're already my hero, or shero! We're in this crazy madcap ride together, right?

On to the helps! The trick is to keep breathing...Collapse )

This will only be of interest to the 4 people who are following these stories. (And by 4 people I mean that each of you have one story you're watching ;) lieueitak and I have been doing our own private NaNoWriMo during the Lenten season. We're both woefully behind our projected 60,000 words but we've also both been much more prolific than we usually are. Or, I should say, I've been more prolific than I usually am. Like 38 pages more prolific...

Yuletide Recs!

watch how i soar
I hardly ever do rec posts, b/c I hardly ever read Yuletide fics in such a way that make them feasible. Sure I'll go through the whole collection...by June. Anywho, this year I seem to be on a mission, possibly inspired by receiving three (!) fics for myself this year, all of them amazing. (Thank God for the bookmarking feature on AO3.)

For the few readers that I have who are here for the fics, not the random, the recs are behind the cut. Come, let us sing of yuletide...um, whatever that next part is. Read more...Collapse )

Updates! Sorta

Hurricane Sandy has inspired me to update my fanfiction index page. Boy was it in need... I don't know how helpful the index is to people. I know I've found sites that have a main index helpful, and sites that use extensive tagging helpful. I'm trying to do both. If you have an opinion one way or another, feel free to share. :)
