Ficcish Stuff!

EEEEEEEEEEEEE, it's almost time for yuletide again! *super-excited* Fic writers, please please please join it this year if you haven't ever done it. I had a blast, and it's such a well-run event. The fandom nominations form goes live soon!

I have a few fic recs to make as well.

75 Skills Barney Stinson Has Mastered by holy_whatever (How I Met Your Mother, Barney/Robin). The author uses Esquire's 75 Skills Every Man Should Master as her basis, and she makes it work so so well. A great read in five parts. (Part 2 / 3 / 4 / 5)

Also, professorjulia's Strays (Batman Nolan-verse) is wrapping up, and if you're not reading it, you are missing a fun ride! :)

Yuletide? darn... almost makes me wish I hadn't signed up for a couple Holiday things already. (mind you, brain power is at zero and even if I looked at the FAQ for this thing, I didn't get most of it...)

Whoa, you've ALREADY signed up for other holiday things? *impressed*

But to hopefully make the FAQ boiling down easier:
-you request stories in 3-4 fandoms
-you offer to write in 3+ fandoms
-they match you up
-you have until December 19th-ish to write a 1000 word story and post it
-they reveal the stories (with no names) on Christmas day
-on New Years Day they reveal the authors
-over 1000 people participate and it's fun!

Remember... this is *me*, the girl who doesn't know how to say "No"... So yeah. I was asked to participate in one, and said yes, and there's something else that's lurking on the horizon (eg: being planned) and I said yes to that, too... Which, considering I have the hardest time writing these days and I don't know how I'll get through NaNo, at this rate... I'm probably going to regret this. LOL

OK, so, somehow I thought that Yuletide thing was for fandoms that not a lot of people wrote in -- is that the case? ..cause my horizon is not very broad, as you probably know. ;)

This is true. But the fandom list is a lot broader than you'd think. There are lots of comics and superhero fandoms represented - even if L&C and Batman aren't eligible. And last year Batman Begins DID make the list. Who knows? Maybe TDK will...? Their criteria doesn't seem to be set in stone.
