    I've sent out reminders to those who have not posted their fic-gifts yet. I'm a major procrastinator so I know that sometimes things get done at the last minute and that's perfectly fine, just didn't want anyone to forget. :) Hopefully I didn't accidently send one to those that have, if I did feel free to ignore it!

    As pointed out by jcgobel3, January 6th is a Tuesday, not a Monday and while I had intended it to be due that Monday, we'll stick with the 6th as the due date. As always if you feel as though you won't be able to complete your fic-gift, please let me know.

    Just wanted to say that it's awesome that this tradition is holiday-neutral. This place is earning more and more of my respect every day. :)

    All of the gift-fic entries are terrific and lend themselves well to authorial creativity. :cool:

    Fic-Gift Index has been updated.

    Also this is a reminder that you have one week to get your fic-gifts finished if you have not written them!


    Thank you for saying so. When I started it 8 years ago (long before I was a mod) it was important to me that everyone felt included so I try to make it as neutral as possible, spanning most of the holidays and not mentioning a specific one. I'm sure there's room for improvement, but I do my best. :)

    Perhaps this is normal, and the other place I post on (which has about a quarter of registered members, maybe a fifth) is a lair of bigotry and unnecessary restrictions. But yes, mad props to you.

    Hope late this year I'll be knowledgable enough about other worlds to take a part in this.

    The fic-gift I'm writing has decided to snowball massively, so while I'll have it posted by the deadline, it will only be half of it, with a TO BE CONTINUED cliffhanger tacked on the end of it.... :/ The rest of it I shall have finished no later than late January! :D

    I just want to assure anyone still waiting for their fic-gift (wink) that it is coming! I'll be sliding in on the deadline as usual for me but it will be posted Tuesday. :) [face_good_luck]

    Same here. I finally quit procrastinating and wrote it Friday night, but I'm still tweaking it as the perfectionist in me is not completely satisfied yet. Will probably be posted Monday night. :)

    OK, double post because it's been 24 hours and the previous post has gotten three likes. :)

    I finally forced myself to stop tweaking it and posted the fic-gift for earlybird-obi-wan:

    The index has been updated. And with that, another year of the Fic-gift exchange closes.

    I just want to say thank you to everyone who participated. This is the very first year where everyone who signed up got their fic-gift posted and there was no need for pinch writers. =D=

    Congratulations to you all!
