Well, it's done

I am not going to fiddle with my Yuletide fic anymore; it will go out as it is and may my recipient forgive me. I tried? But not hard enough, clearly.

But it was a great prompt, though.

ETA: I LIED; I came back to it 15 minutes later and fixed a bunch of spelling errors, but it's not enough; it will never be enough.

. . .please don't ban me from yuletide. . .

It's the same for me. The fic's good enough to publish, I guess, but probably not good enough as a gift for someone.

And I'm reminded that I forgot to comment on the new Evelyn chapter. Still, since I've read the Gift of Wings and some more of the Journals in the meantime, I'm a bit afraid of what's coming.

Oh, well? Maybe I can make up for it karmawise by writing some NYRs, or a second, *better* story for the recipient? I don't want to be a bad Yuletider, but circumstances just got distracting this year. I know that's no excuse.

Evelyn won't ever get Gift of Wings grim, I think. I couldn't handle it if it did.

Well, I hope whoever gets your fic loves it despite your misgivings. Fingers crossed!

And it's amazing! I can see why you want to keep editing, but the writing is so strong and vivid it doesn't matter that the structure isn't quite there, which is something I didn't notice until the third time I read it.

Btw, edit the tags! They'll help more people find your story and people should find it and read it!

blueonblue, how do you always find my stories?

is it because I only have one sentence structure?

i keep meaning to get more of those. . .

ETA: I tried to edit the tags, but not really sure how to do it. I'll investigate later. I'm glad you liked it!

Old-fashioned cyberstalking, that's how I found you, sort of. Was slightly ill, so I stayed in with 3 million tabs of fanfic open and was able to confirm it since Yuletide isn't completely anonymous this year.

If I wake up feeling energetic, I may do a recs post. I feel like my gifts aren't getting the hits they deserve and I know I'll forget to go back and leave comments on the fics I left kudos on yesterday. Mostly TV fandoms, for some reason my usual fandoms didn't do it for me this year.

And, even though LJ's death may take Yuletide with it, I already have my nominations/requests for next year. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Heh, me too. I have Big Plans to actually make it to the nomination process next year.

I hope you do a rec post! I've been trying to put one together in the past couple days, but I'm a slow reader and an even slower writer, and I've had to go back to work sort of immediately after Xmas (though that's a tricky proposition with all this Yuletide still in front of me). I liked the Peep Show story you got (despite having only seen the two videos you posted); I feel I should probably start watching the show now.

Anne of Green Gables stories don't usually seem to need a lot of promotion, but I want to show my love anyway.

Your leet skill(z) are beyond my understanding. But I hope you feel better soon.
