Housekeeping (the usual stuff)
Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

As we don't always get the time to pull things out of the suggestions post into their own separate posts, it may be worth checking every week (or tracking the post) to see if there's any new information you're interested in.

Also if you need help with tags, PM [personal profile] redbird, who is our tag guru. Both [personal profile] tanaqui and I are very grateful for the help.

My very own own Senator Ed Markey, along with California Congressman Ted Lieu, has created a bill that would require authorization from Congress (either as a declaration of war or the more-common- of-late authorization of force) before a nuclear strike.

This is a wonderful bill for a number of obvious reasons; it's HR 699/S 200. (House/Senate version. House text.)

If you are so inclined, call your Senators and Congressfolk to urge them to pass it. (202) 224-3121, or use Resistbot. (Text the word "resist" to 50409 to begin.)

Rachelmanijia has more info, a script, and other ideas here, and the campaign is hashtagging it up at #PullTheFootball, if you're Twitter-inclined.

If you're not American, feel free to share the info around anyway; the more folks who get this info, the better.

Assignments Out


Yuletide 2017 assignments have been sent. You can find your assignment by:



My Sign-up
My Assignment
Sign-up Summary
Requests Summary

  • checking your email, if you have collection-related emails from the Archive of Our Own enabled in your Preferences.



Stay Chill, Stay Silent


This is a secret exchange. Don’t announce what your assignment is. Don’t reveal to your recipient who you are or what you plan to write for them. In fact, please don’t contact them at all. You can send questions through the mods at yuletideadmin@gmail.com (but please read further in this post before you send any questions).


I have questions!!


Naturally! Right now there are three kinds of questions: questions that we would like you to send right away; questions that we ask you to hold off sending until October 15th; and questions we can’t help with at all.

Questions to send immediately
  • My assignment doesn’t have the fandoms and characters I offered - what’s wrong? - We haven’t heard this one for a while, but if that does happen to you, please email us.

  • I don’t have an assignment! Where is it? - Please check that you signed up… But yes, please do let us know.


Questions to hold off sending until October 15
  • Could you please ask my recipient to unlock/complete their letter? - Please give them, and us, a few more days.

  • I don’t understand my recipient’s prompts. Could you ask them…? - Again, please give us a few days. If your question is very general - for example, they include a term you don’t recognize - you may be able to sign in to IRC or Discord and ask other participants! Please be careful not to give away what fandom you’re writing, and for whom.

  • How exactly do I fulfil my assignment? Do I have to… - Again, please give us a few days, see above question, and see the FAQ.


Questions not to ask us
  • My assignment is terrible. Can I change it? - No. If you have an assignment that matches what you offered, please either work to fulfil it, or default.


The FAQ may answer some of your questions.

Asking for more details through the mods )


Your assignment is due at 9am UTC on 18 December. In your timezone, that will not be the end of 18 December. It may be early. It may even still be the 17th.

Please click here to see what time the deadline is in your time zone.


(If you happen to be wondering, later, “when’s the deadline again?” you can check your assignment email, or look on the 2017 Yuletide collection - either at the top, or in the Schedule.)


And last and most important, have fun!

We have closed sign-ups for Yuletide 2017, and are now running matching. This is the process of figuring out who will write for whom, so that everyone gets an assignment and an assigned author.

This means:

  • Your sign-up is locked in and cannot be edited.

  • The sign-up number will go down a little as we delete duplicate (glitched) sign-ups and sign-ups from banned participants.

  • The sign-up summary has stopped updating. It last updated with 12 minutes to go before closing.

  • If none of your offers matches another person’s request, we will contact you (generally through email) and give you a deadline by which you must either provide us with more fandoms and characters that you can write, OR choose to delete your sign-up. However, if just one of your offers matches another person’s request, you can sit tight and wait for your assignment.

  • At the same time as assignments go out, we’ll send pinch hits.

  • It’s a good idea to check the email associated with your AO3 account, as we may use it to contact you - not just if you’re unmatchable, but also if your author has questions for you.


Assignments will go out by 15 October, but may go out earlier. Please ensure that if you are writing a letter, it is complete by the end of 15 October in your time zone.

Here we go!

morbane: uletide mod image of guinea pig among daisies (Yuletide)
[personal profile] morbane posting in [community profile] yuletide_admin
Yuletide 2017 sign-ups end at 9am UTC on 9 October. That may be Sunday in your timezone; if you're not sure, we advise you to complete your sign-up over the weekend. Alternately, here is a countdown.

See sign-up instructions at the previous post.


A few more notes and reminders
  • Anyone who wishes to sign up but does not have an AO3 account is welcome to ask at yuletideadmin@gmail.com for an invitation code rather than submitting their email to the invitation queue.

  • If you defaulted after the default deadline last year, or previously, or you have defaulted more than once in recent Yuletides, you may not be eligible to sign up. There is at least one sign-up, from someone who defaulted in 2015 and 2016, that we will delete when sign-ups close. Please check with us if you think this may be you!

  • Posting a complete story to the New Year's Resolutions 2017 collection is, in most cases, sufficient to unban you. However, you must post it before sign-ups close, and it must be:
    • for a fandom that would have been small enough for Yuletide 2016;
    • for a prompt that was made in a past Yuletide;
    • given to a recipient.

  • This is also a good time to check you can access the email associated with your AO3 account, as we may use this to get in contact with you in case of problems, or in case of questions from your assigned author.

  • Selecting 0 characters - if you do not put specific character tags in a request, this means that you are open to receiving any character in the tag set for that fandom. Your author is only obliged to write the characters they offered. Do not leave a request empty of character tags, and then demand specific characters in the optional details. If you care which nominated characters you receive, select them; if the characters you truly want aren't in the tag set, we advise you not to request the fandom.
