Please Do Not  
I have been informed that someone is attempting to get people to write "thank you" stories for me for posting in [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest.  I appreciate the thought!  Thank you!  However, please do not do that.  Please follow the community rules as written.  No non-match "bonus" stories will be released on the community.  Please plan to take the "after party" to fkcommentfic as will be explained on the community in this evening's posts.  Please write anything there you like in accord with that community's rules!

As it is such a big problem, I promise to never write "door prize" drabbles again.  I am sorry for causing distress by inflicting them in the first place; I wish I'd never had the idea.  They were supposed to reward the on-time players (there were a lot of late players that first year).  I would delete mine for this year now, but that would be unfair to the kind people who pitched in to complete them, and unfair to the few people without while all the others got attention.

I'm having a mildly difficult time recently. Please don't make it harder by throwing me curveballs. Thank you very much!

I think that the drabble idea is lovely! I'm sure anyone who wanted to write a gift fic for you could quite easily do so should you feel comfortable posting prompts in fkcommentfic. And if you don't want to do so, then everyone can be asked to graciously accept a gift that was given with no thought of reward - or they can pay it forward by writing someone else a drabble in the comment fic comm.

Thank you! It seemed important to recognize the people who did everything as they were supposed to. (That first year, there was a default, a drop-out and much lateness.)

>" I'm sure anyone who wanted to write a gift fic for you could quite easily do so ... in fkcommentfic."

I agree! I plan to play on FKCommentFic and I hope that everyone else will, too. In this case, unfortunately, someone declined to accept "Thanks! Please post at FKCommentFic!" as my final answer.

Goodness knows, I'm not objecting to more FK fic! :-)

(This individual had never before witnessed me flip out when taken by surprise at the last minute. Now everyone has, I suppose... ~wry~)

I hadn't realized said person refused to take the answer you had given them. That's a shame! Whether this person understands your feelings or not, they certainly should be able to respect them.

Yep: three times.

Thank you!
