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.

After dithering about echoing vs linking the 2015 Yuletide Master Index Post, I've decided to just link it, so that [livejournal.com profile] swan_tower can do all the work to keep it updated :-)

Please check that linked post for links to rules, schedule, letters, chat information, beta information, swaps, and so on!

We had two New Year's Resolution works posted last week. Nice work, authors! The new fics are in What's Your Number? (2011) and ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 | JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken | JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Enjoy!

Works under cut... )


Challenge information )

Fics written for the purpose of re-qualifying for Yuletide must be posted before sign-ups begin for Yuletide 2016. 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).

Welcome to the New Year's Resolution challenge, and to the New Year's Resolution round-up posts. The New Year's Resolution collection is for stories written to previous Yuletide prompts. Anyone is welcome to submit a story.

Regarding round-up posts: I'm off to a slow start this year, sorry - unlike the twelve authors who have already posted! I was thinking about posting updates twice a month - is that okay? Or do people prefer the weekly format, any time there's a new fic posted in a given week?

Meanwhile, we already have stories in:
Piazze d'Italia - Giorgio de Chirico
バクダン★ハンダン | Bakudan Handan | Sweet Fuse: At Your Side
Solar System (Anthropomorphic)
Natsume Yuujinchou | Natsume's Book of Friends
Jupiter Ascending (2015)
裏切りは僕の名前を知っている | Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru | The Betrayal Knows My Name
TLF Travel Alerts (Twitter)
Riptide (TV)
Eerie Indiana
Minority Report (TV 2015)
Mordant's Need - Stephen R. Donaldson
Card Games - Fandom
Spades - Fandom
Anthropomorfic

Another traditional part of Yuletide: talking about what you wrote, how you found it, challenges along the way, and so forth!

If you've written a reveals post, consider linking it in comments? (Or just comment with your thoughts, if you like.)
