Tis the season for seasonal exchanges

The tag set for [community profile] yuletide_admin has been revealed, and the countdown has begun for sign-ups, which are slated to open on Friday.

For those who missed nominations, or who are looking for a less rare, non-Yuletide-eligible fandom, nominations are now open at [community profile] mistletoe_exchange, a new all-fandom ship exchange.

I'm torn on which I'd rather do, if any. My track record on actually finishing writing in a timely fashion hasn't been great lately and I hate spending the days before Christmas either scrambling to write or feeling guilty because I'm not writing. On the other hand, I love actually finishing things and receiving fic and being part of the excitement. I've nominated for both, so I might wait for the letter and see if I find any of the requests inspiring.

Dear Yuletide Author 2018

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! I'm excited to read whatever you write.

I've provided some general preferences below along with some prompts for each fandom. Hopefully something here will inspire you! If not, optional details are optional; go ahead and write the story you want to write. Though if you could avoid my DNWs, I'd appreciate it.

Also, I'm skieswideopen on AO3 and on Tumblr, though I don't use the latter very much.

Lucifer

And of course, just as Lucifer gets interesting again after a bit of hit-and-miss season, it gets cancelled. So very sad.

I'm just hoping they didn't decide to end the season (and now series) on a cliffhanger.

ETA: And here's an article about the upcoming cliffhanger. Well, maybe someone will write a proper fic ending.

Being Human: Aidan close-up

Everything has its day, right?

I find it hilarious that New York Fries--a fast food restaurant that literally sells nothing but fries (and hot dogs)--has a loyalty program. (Okay, they also sell a few poutine variants, but that's just French fries with toppings.) A loyalty program. Buy 10, get one free.

On the other hand, apparently members can get free fries tomorrow in honour of National Fry Day, so now I'm kind of thinking about joining.

Crossovers that will never be written

A couple of crossover ideas I'd like to see, mostly written for myself, because it's easier to write about the stories I want to read than to actually write them.
