Yuletide?

I am well enough to contemplate Doing Things again!

I spent almost all of yesterday in bed watching TV, sneezing and knitting. I didn't even write, didn't walk dogs, didn't do anything.

If I can write 4000 words today and another 4000 tomorrow, I'll be back where I want to be. I think I should be able to catch up on the around-the-house stuff by tomorrow, too.

I'll be even further behind at work, since I went home six hours early yesterday, but that's just too bad.



I'm thinking about Yuletide, trying to decide if I want to participate this year. I just saw The Secret of Moonacre (and why isn't it Moon Acre anyway?), which is the sort of not-quite-fairy-tale kind of thing I always request, but this time in movie form (since I haven't been great with reading books lately).

OR I COULD REQUEST TWELVE HOUSES FIC! Lisa, Kit, Rosie, Elscy, are any of you up for Yuletide this year? It would be lovely if a few of us could request and/or offer in this fandom!

Other candidates include the books Will Grayson Will Grayson, Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes/The Last Little Blue Envelope, and Five Children and It, or the TV show Missing.

... which kind of answers that question: yes, it seems likely that I'm doing Yuletide this year.

Sweeet! If you decide to nominate Twelve Houses, we should coordinate characters to make sure all six mains are nominated! (You can only nominate four characters each, and I would love to be sure as many as possible are in.)

Alright, I'm biting. If we wanted to branch from the main 6 to all partners as well, we could do a gender split and get them all nominated between the two of us. :)

Ahh, I'm scared stiff of participating in Yuletide. And I'm not sure why - it's not like all the entries are astounding, I'm just... shy. ^__^

You? Shy? buwahahaha!

Er, sorry. I'm sure you are if you're outside your comfort zone, but having met you through Pierce fandom and admired your BNF-iness long before we became friends, it's kind of a startling idea.

Anyway, perhaps there will be Twelve Houses fic for you to enjoy even if you don't sign up!

Hahaha! This is one of those "WTF? that's how you see me?" moments, because I've *never* considered myself to be remotely BNF-y. :P

Mainly my comfort-issue is that I don't really consider myself a writer, so sometimes exchanges feel like I'm forcing myself to write, rather than doing it because I'm compelled.

Or the easy answer: I'm a big ball of crazy. :P

Yuletide. Now there's one of those fandom things that has always perplexed me.

Oh, it's SO fun! Though honestly my favorite part is trolling through the collection and reading fics for things I like but never even thought about ficcing. :)
