Yuletide Nominations Are Open!

Now that I've calmed down from the utter spazzy-ness of earlier (sorry Twitter people, lol), I ask you all:

I've got my Yuletide nominations in, have YOU?



Right now, it's just filling out a form to suggest the fandoms that you want to request when signups open up. Actual signups will be in a few weeks. :)

Newbies to yuletide, I am ready and willing to help you figure this out! This is my third year and I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVE this event. :D

Anyone can write a "New Year's Resolution" even if they didn't write for Yuletide proper. So yeah!

And basically, if there's tons of fic and multiple comms for a fandom, it is not eligible. (Supernatural, for example) But less active, brand new, and over 10 years old fandoms are. If you try to put one in and it has been deemed not eligible, you'll get an error message.

By ten years old, I assume you mean ten years off the air? I don't write for brand new fandoms as a rule -- I need enough canon to ground my fic -- but I do love a nice closed canon.

Yes, 10 years off the air, or since it was last released for movies and books. :)

What if I nominate a fandom and then don't sign up for the exchange? I really don't want to be making a commitment for November/December in October. Actually, I shouldn't be considering this at all, given my oh so lovely reputation. *sigh*

Well, they sort of only want people who plan to participate to nominate. So if you're worried, I wouldn't do it - and just find something you want to write in the unfilled prompts later.

It is only a 1000 word story, though. You might be okay! But you know yourself best. *hugs*

I wouldn't nominate any fandoms unless I really thought I was going to participate, and I'm leaning in the direction of being afraid to commit right now, so I guess that's my answer. I assume that I can skip nominating any fandoms and then sign up to participate if I get over the fear?

(Sorry to be driving you nuts.)

The first year I didn't nominate anything, just signed up based on the final list. So yes! Doing the nominations just ensures that fandoms you want will be on that list, but it isn't necessary to participate. :)

And no, not driving me crazy! I volunteered to help, right? ;)

I volunteered to help, right?

Well that'll teach you.

Anyway, the only rare fandom I thought of was D.E.B.S. and I see it made last year's list without my help.
