Fandom Stocking 2012 Links  
Playing [community profile] fandom_stocking this year?  Please share a link to your stocking once [personal profile] medie hangs it!

I have not yet decided whether I will hang a stocking myself this year (I will decide by the end of this weekend), but only because I am behind on so many things, in fandom and out, that I may not be able to contribute more than warm wishes.  I have greatly enjoyed playing the past three years!  I met some lovely people there (including [personal profile] sholio), wrote some stories with which I am pleased (including "Scrubbed Clean" for [personal profile] skieswideopen), and received some delightful treats (including this drawing of Cassiopeia by ani_bester).

Here are the Fandom Stocking tags for some of the fandoms in which I'm interested:
Addendum: I did enter a stocking, and Medie hung it here. :-)

I loved "Scrubbed Clean" so very much! It really is one of my favourite FK stories ever.

(It is a busy time of year. I'm going to have to rush to finish everything I have due as well.)

Thank you! I am delighted and flattered.

(Fandom aside, I often think that certain cultural expectations of this time of year came from eras in which work necessarily slowed down -- lack of daylight, lack of warmth, difficulty traveling -- and more people had perhaps some time available for parties and presents and baking and caroling and all. The activities became traditional, but the context enabling them slipped away...)

Do you happen to know if there's a deadline for the hanging of stockings? I have to postpone putting mine up until I've finished creating non-virtual Christmas presents.

Fandom Stocking Deadline (if any) Unknown
I do not know (sorry). I imagine that sooner is better, but that Medie's generosity may keep her hanging them with care until Christmas Eve; after that, I imagine, more new stockings would be too unfair to those trying to fill them.

Is it a matter of not having enough time to write the stocking? You might copy and paste from your last year's stocking, to save time. (Just a thought!)

I decided to hang mine after all, and submitted it before bed on Sunday night. Even if I do not manage to write much new this year, I will wish everyone well, and I have, frankly, written rather a lot of original stories for this game over the past several years. Hopefully, it all evens out in the long run! :-)

I never had a stocking before. I was planning to participate the first time this year. I've written a few contributions over the years, but I never had a stocking of my own.
It's just a matter of lack of time to go through the process of putting up the DW account and creating the stocking (I already know what will go into it, that's not the problem). Maybe I can squeeze it in tonight.

Oh, that's right! I remembered your contributions; I forgot that you didn't ask any for yourself.

I believe that you do not need a Dreamwidth account to submit a stocking (though I see that you have now created your account). I believe that people may submit stockings using OpenID.
