Challenge information
Until assignments are sent out (approximately) for Yuletide 2017, the New Year's Resolution collection (2017 edition) is open for writers to submit fics based on prompts from previous Yuletides.

Writers are especially encouraged to write stories for prompts that were not filled during the main Yuletide run.

2016 prompts on AO3
Google spreadsheet of all prompts (thank you to Min)
Database of 2016's Dear Author letters (thank you to lsellersfic)
2016 prompts as a text file
Prompts from 2016's non-signed-up pinch hitters on LJ and on DW
Some Day My Fic Will Come mini-challenge - This challenge is for the prompts that are posted year after year after year. If you've requested a canon in at least three Yuletides and you haven't received it yet, add the prompts to the post to increase their visibility - we will collect them in the spreadsheet. Or, see if you can fill someone else's perennial request. And if your request has been filled, please comment on the post to let us know!

Fics written for the purpose of re-qualifying for Yuletide must be posted before sign-ups begin for Yuletide 2017 (before October 10, 2017). They must also be over 1,000 words and written to a previous Yuletide prompt. The fandom in which they are written must still be small enough to qualify for Yuletide (in brief: there are fewer than 1,000 fics each (that are over 1,000 words, in English, and complete) when adding the total fics on AO3 and ff.net).

I will aim for fortnightly NYR updates from this point. I apologise for the delay.
