I'm keeping the "support group" low key this year and don't plan to link to the main Yuletide community, but if you've got anything you want to say about your current Yuletide experience, feel free to do so, and if you want to pimp the post around to anyone, feel free to do that as well. Anonymous posting is permitted, because we all know it's deemed unseemly to say these things.
I know the new server has been very, very slow, and it's been difficult to read fics. I'm delighted with the responses I got from all my recipients and I've gotten at least a few extras on all of them, including one that I always assumed would be a bastard step-child.
But then there's the recs.
At one point, I told myself that I'd unfriend Yuletide for a few days (or take it off my reading filter) just so I wouldn't be obsessively looking for recs of my stories. I didn't. So far one rec from a recipient, which is absolutely lovely and I'm thrilled. No other recs, and I gotta admit it's hurting, especially because of one story I wrote where there are two other stories to the same prompt and both of them are getting recced. So clearly mine sucks. :(
Just to reiterate: I LOVE YULETIDE!!! I love the fic I got. I loved writing the fics I did, and I'm very very happy with the comments I've gotten on them.
The floor is open for sharing. (Including telling me I'm a stroppy bint for even posting such a thing.)
