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!

>"Maybe we can post all the prompts somewhere and people can write drabbles or extra stories with no minimum word count for whatever prompt they choose?"

Yes, exactly; that is the plan! Just like last year -- only better? -- the "dead dog party" will happen over on Amilyn's fkcommentfic community, which is designed for precisely that scenario.

In this case, the very well- and generously-intentioned individual did not wish to accept "Thanks! Please post on FKCommentFic!" as my final answer, and did not understand that when I said, "Don't surprise your mod; she hates that," I meant, "Don't surprise your mod at the last minute; she will completely and utterly flip out, like sprung clockwork." ~wry~
