Reminders

Sign ups will officially close on NOVEMBER 19th if you have not signed up yet, please do so, it only takes a moment. If you have signed up, then by all means bully your friends into doing so also.

Got any questions? Please check out our FAQ thread located here and if your question is not already answered, please feel free to leave it as a comment.

Sign up sheet can be located here please leave your sign up as a comment beneath that thread.

Wanna help out but don't have time to write? Volunteer as a beta reader here

I know it's November and a lot of you are busy doing midterms/NaNo but you wouldn't be required to turn anything in until as late as December 23, and then you will be posting it directly to the comm. We're not asking for epic length fanfics here, just one-shots meeting the minimum of 1,000 words. So please, please sign up?

Official Beta Reader thread

The Beta Reader thread is going to be unscreened comments. If you wish to offer your services please be honest about what your strengths and weaknesses are as a beta reader. Feel free to post stories that you've written/edited (the latter with permission from the person you edited for, please).

We're not assigning beta readers, this thread is a free for all and each writer will be responsible for contacting a beta reader on their own time.

Also, let us know which series you're familiar with. I would hate for you to only know like, VII and VIII and someone who needs a beta for III contacts you :)

Tweaks and changes

Last year, we bullied the lot of you into emailing all your stories to one place and then we posted. This, in hindsight, was perhaps not the best way to handle things.

So this year, in the month of December, posting access will be opened to everyone and you will all be responsible for posting your own stories, if for some reason you will not be available in the entire month of December and you know ahead of time, please feel free to e-mail me and we will make arrangements.

(that being said, you guys, don't forget to pimp this comm out and sign up yourselves!!)

In other news, if you, or one of your friends, wants to be a part of the ff_santa fun but don't feel you have the time to write a story, we're now opening up a BETA READER post. I will post the Beta Reader sign-up tomorrow some time.

YOU CAN ONLY SIGN UP AS A BETA IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY WRITING A STORY.

As always any questions, concerns, comments are welcomed either on this post or feel free to PM me ♥

ff_Santa, returning soon

Hey gang! After much thought and consideration, ff_santa will be returning very soon. Sign-ups will start sometime within the next week and a half.

Why the change? Most seasonal writing challenges start at roughly the same time. Thus giving individuals the trial of picking and choosing on top of mid-terms/finals. We here are attempting to alleviate some of that stress, give you lot longer to finish your stories and thus more time for us to assign pinch-hitters if needed.

So, here's your official welcome back posts! Lots of things will be going up shortly, spread the word to your friends! Our sophomore attempt is going to be much better and we look forward to seeing what you've all got ♥

SIGN UPS WILL START OFFICIALLY ON OCTOBER 15TH AND RUN FOR ONE MUNCH THERE IN
