This is an entirely unofficial community for chat about Yuletide. Official communities can be found at [community profile] yuletide_admin and [livejournal.com profile] yuletide_admin (which has a feed at [syndicated profile] yuletide_admin_feed.

This is intended to be a Dreamwidth equivalent of [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

Yuletide letters are an optional, but traditional, part of Yuletide.

When you sign up to Yuletide (on AO3, beginning 1 October), you will pick between 3 and 6 fandoms to request. On the sign-up form, you can also enter prompts for each of these fandoms. Many people stick to that, and don’t write a letter. Many people choose to also write a letter, and put the link in the sign-up form. Writing a Yuletide letter makes your prompts more visible. It gives people some idea of what’s being requested in a fandom before they offer to write it, and it gives you space to talk at length about your likes and dislikes.

If you want tips on how to write a letter, try Yuletide IRC chat, or perhaps browse other people’s letters and think about whether they would be helpful to you as a writer.

To announce your letter to the Yuletide community at large, please comment to this Dreamwidth post or to the parallel post on LiveJournal, in the following format:

AO3 name
Link to your letter
Another link if your letter is in more than one place
Fandom name
Fandom name
Fandom name

That is, please write it like:

Sucker Punch (2011)
Soon I Will Be Invincible - Austin Grossman
Jorinde and Joringel (Fairy Tale)

rather than

AO3 name: Morbane
Link to your letter: http://morbane.livejournal.com/201664.html
Fandom name: Sucker Punch (2011)
Fandom name: Soon I Will Be Invincible - Austin Grossman
Fandom name: Jorinde and Joringel (Fairy Tale)

Faster for you, and faster for me copying it to the spreadsheet. ^!^

If you want to add your requested characters in your comment, please feel free! Just please write them below your AO3 name, letter link, and fandom names.

You can have 3, 4, 5, or 6 fandom names - that is the number of possible requests this year.

Please use the 2016 tag set as a guide to formatting each fandom name.

Please do NOT link an placeholder or a locked letter. We won’t tabulate those until they’re available.

If you need to correct your details, please reply to or edit your comment, AND post a reply to the correction comment, one of the first under the post.

The google spreadsheet is HERE. Thank you to Alley_Skywalker, Isis, Molybdomantic, and Shadow_Lover, who are helping to keep it updated.

If your letter isn’t done yet, don’t panic. We will keep adding letters to the spreadsheet whenever you comment. I strongly recommend finishing your letter before 16 October, because otherwise, your writer will be waiting to see it instead of starting on their story for you.

However, that’s only if you’re writing a letter. If you don't want to, you don't have to.

This post is also on LiveJournal.

Nominations are open and this is the optional nominations confirmation post, brought to you by [livejournal.com profile] desert_vixen and jaclynhyde. Apologies for the delayed posting! Note: the nominations coordination post does not have a spreadsheet this year, but feel free to use the post as usual.
 1. This is the confirmation post for nominations.  Please post only after you have submitted your nominations on AO3. This DOES NOT count as your nomination. The LiveJournal confirmation post is here; if you comment in both posts, please note that you're cross-posting.
2. The Google Spreadsheet is here
3. This post is intended to help people coordinate to get the most out of nominations - keep in mind that if you absolutely MUST have a fandom/character in Yuletide, or it's ruined, you should nominate it yourself.
4. Please remember that the volunteers running this post are NOT Yuletide mods, so no authority or ability to fix issues. 
5. If you change a nomination or add to a nomination, make a NEW comment.  DO NOT edit your previous comment or reply to it.  If you don't make a new comment, it's possible your change will be missed.
6. There is a format below to help keep the comments organized - please use it! Copying and pasting your tags from AO3 is the best choice.

It's almost Yuletide nomination time, so here is the Dreamwidth nomination trading post! I am not a mod, but am again helping out with spreadsheets, along with [livejournal.com profile] desert_vixen (whose post I am copying here). The LiveJournal trading post is also up, and keep in mind that Dreamwidth users can comment on LJ. Feel free to comment on one or both, but mention if you're duplicating your comment!

This year, we can each nominate up to 3 fandoms, and 4 characters per fandom.

To get the most out of our nominations, it helps to coordinate. By sharing information, we can avoid several people all nominating the same fandom if they don't have to, ensure that one fandom's fans can cover all the characters they want, and generally maximise the things we want to see in the tag set.

This is NOT a required part of Yuletide, so keep in mind that just because it's not listed here does not mean that someone is not thinking about nominating it.  Last year, the nominations trading post represented about 1/3 of actual Yuletide nominations.

Please comment on this post with the fandoms and characters you are definitely nominating. If you're not sure about some of your slots, you can also list things you are strongly considering, as well as the things you hope other people will nominate for you. This is especially useful for fandoms that benefit from a larger group of characters.

If you aren't sure about any of your choices yet, don't comment here yet - head over to this year's brainstorming post (or on LJ).

A Google spreadsheet will be forthcoming - watch this space! Due to time constraints and busy spreadsheeters, there will be no spreadsheet this year. Sorry about that!

After nominations begin, there will be another post in which you can list what you actually nominated.

This post is OPTIONAL and does not serve as your official nomination. Nominations begin on AO3 on September 9th.

According to the Yuletide Schedule, nominations begin in a little over two weeks. What are you thinking about nominating? What are you hoping to get other participants interested in?

Use this post to drum up interest in the Yuletide-sized fandoms of your heart. Tell us what you like about them, and where we can find canon sources or primers. You may get a new convert to your tiny fandom, or remind someone of that thing they used to love but thought nobody else cared about.

This post is meant for fandom promotion/discussion only. If you have problems/questions about how Yuletide is run, you should hop over to the yuletide-admin comm on Dreamwidth or Livejournal to ask a mod.

We have had one recent work posted to the New Year's Resolution collection. Keep them coming!

Folie à Deux (5950 words) by MinervasTorch
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Futurama
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Philip J. Fry/Turanga Leela, past Lars Fillmore/Turanga Leela, past Turanga Leela/Sean
Characters: Philip J. Fry, Turanga Leela, Bender Rodriguez, Lars Fillmore, Nibbler (Futurama)
Additional Tags: Episode Related, Episode Tag, Post-Fry and Leela's Big Fling, Cunnilingus, Romance, Porn with Feelings, Emotional Sex, Character Study, Past Relationship(s)

“You know, Big Boots,” Bender declares, waving the hard drive around in the air. “If it weren’t for me, you’d be enjoying some new-found fame. It’s only my quick thinking that has spared you some considerable moritification. You biological organisms and your disgusting and embarrassing bodily functions! This is the only copy. Don’t look at in public.”

It wasn’t that Leela wasn’t horrified when Bender and Amy told her that her ‘romantic getaway’ with Fry was actually a zoo habitat on a planet populated by sentient apes who wanted to gawp at humans mating. It was just that she assumed they were lying about it.
