This is an informal community for chat about Yuletide, which was started up by participants and has now (2017) been passed over to mods. Official announcements are given at [community profile] yuletide_admin and [ profile] yuletide_admin (which has a feed at [syndicated profile] yuletide_admin_feed).

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

What is the New Year's Resolutions 2019 collection?
The New Year's Resolutions challenge/activity is part of Yuletide. Each year after a round of Yuletide ends, a new NYR collection is set up. This collection is for new works based on past Yuletide prompts.

Anyone can look at past Yuletide prompts and submit a work - you don't need to have participated in Yuletide before. Gifts must respect their recipients' Do-Not-Wants. However, if you're writing a NYR story because you are required to before you can sign up to Yuletide again, there are additional requirements.

See also the 2018 Yuletide FAQ and the nyr stories tag on this journal.

2018's prompts are available on AO3, in a downloadable text file, and in an app. Prompts from pinch hitters who weren't signed up can be found here (DW) and here (LJ), and are also included in the app. For older prompts, try looking at the dashboards of previous NYR collections, such as New Year's Resolutions 2018.

Someday My Fic Will Come
This additional mini-challenge is run by swan_tower. If you have requested the same thing in at least 3 Yuletides, and you haven't been given it yet, record your prompt at this post, or look for a long-lingering prompt that you can fulfil.

[community profile] fandom_stocking is drawing to a close for it's 2018 fest, but we have a few stockings left that need gifts before we can end this round.

We are down to the final 12 stockings! Please CLICK HERE to see which gift stockings still need some more love. There are requests for many fandoms and for many gift mediums (fic, art, icons/graphics, fanmixes, and more). Please take a peek to see if there is something you might be able to create for someone needing a gift.

If you are able to share this link on your pages, particularly on Tumblr as I don't have an account there, that would be very much appreciated! You do not need to have a Dreamwidth account to participate, and all posting details are there in the post.

Thank you for your help ensuring everyone gets gifts this year! ♥

belatedly -

This is another semi-traditional Yuletide thing: reveals posts for talking about how it went. Did you match on the last fandom you expected? Did you lose the canon you were writing for and need to reacquire it? Did you re-write everything at the eleventh hour? Etc.

(Please be circumspect in discussing a negative experience with your author, your recipient, or someone else. If you have an unresolved issue, mods would like to hear about it at

Otherwise - replies welcome in comments, or you can link to reveals posts you've made elsewhere.

Last year, I hosted a post-reveals friending meme on Dreamwidth. It was so much fun, and I met a lot of great people through it, so I'm doing so again this year.

The meme is here. I've enabled anonymous commenting, so you don't need to have a Dreamwidth account to be able to participate.

Please do also feel free to share the link to the meme far and wide.
