Yuletide

RIGHTO.

It is now 2008 here in Arizona. *flings confetti*

I myself am workin' on fic and hangin' with an online bud or two and getting drunk-called by another online bud and it's really kind of a nice way to ring it in, y'know?

*hugs all the f-list*

But the purpose of this post is twofold:

Firstly, to SQUEE over all the fun I've had with the Yuletide ficathon in this, my very first year! I received as my gift-fic a marvelous little piece called No Man's Land, for one of my very favorite books, Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog. The fic captures the characters and atmosphere of the book wonderfully, and it's written from the POV of Verity, which made me glee mightily. I don't know who wrote it just yet, nor can I say anything about the story I wrote, because the authors are kept anonymous from the time the archive opens on Christmas Eve until sometime New Year's morning. So I'll be in the dark for several more hours. *impatient bounce* But do check out the archive and leave some comments for the writers. And sign up next year to join the fun!

My fic has gotten some lovely comments, I'm pleased to say. And a rec! *faints*

And secondly, I wanted to let you guys know that I'll be making an LJ-related Announcement later today. *giggles and rubs hands together* Yes, I'm announcing an announcement. Your point? ;)

While I'm here, I might as well toss in a meme from starbuck92:

Well, I went and did it ...

... I have created my Very First Comm.

nomnomcomm LIVES!

With the stellar assistance of dien and altitudeandwine, I have created nomnomcomm as a place where lovers of all fandoms can put together their favorite characters with their favorite foodstuffs and let them *cough* have fun. All kinds of fun. Fic, art, recs, discussions, questions, everything goes! We'll be posting monthly creative challenges, and I'm planning a prompt table like unto those of fanfic100and smut_69, but feel free to create and post as the spirit moves you! The intro post is up, and I plan to set up a suggestion post and discussion topic later today. I hope as many of you as possible will join up and spread the word. Time for Fandom to get Foody!
