This is how Kim Hyukkyu was built, one careful piece at a time.

In a moment of sheer, inexplicable terror, he thinks: This is the end of the line for us. He'll lose this team too. It'll be torn apart and eaten up by the rest of the LCK rosters, or maybe it will be him that will leave. Another year of learning new teammates, a new support, figuring out the quiet hours of a gaming house, who liked to drink what after a game, who would order soup and who would order chicken, which teammate would let him nap on them and which liked to yell loudly at him from across the room while streaming. Another year wasted, with new burdens to shoulder—listening to analysts tell him how wrong Mata had been for him, deciding if he'd stay with Wonseok or peel away, seeing Kyungho or Dongbin in unfamiliar jackets and falling into familiar patterns with them, just like seeing Gwanhyung or Cheonju in 2015 had been like running along the grooves of a train track that no longer existed. And all for what? he asks himself, panic rising. If even this team failed, if even with this team nothing changed and SKT still won, what else is left for him?

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 prompts that are posted year after year after year - see more info at the link!

Fics written for the purpose of re-qualifying for Yuletide must be posted before sign-ups begin for Yuletide 2017 (ie, before October 10). They must also be over 1,000 words and written to a previous Yuletide prompt.
