If I look at the [ profile] yuletide prompt list there were so many interesting things requested that I would have liked to write! Maybe I’m doing it for the NYR thing... At least one story?

All in all there was some nice fic for Asian Sources in different categories and I do think they need more love! I’m thinking of making a rec list when I’ve finally finished browsing. Who want to leave feedback for the a little underappreciated fandoms of our headrt can browse the yuletide 2011 collection on the whole or by media type. Maybe start with anime/manga and games and then work through the rest?

Have some of my recs and if you haven't yet don't forget to check out the nice Tokyo Babylon fic I recieved.

My first yuletide went great! My recipient did seem to like the fic I’ve written: So the most important mission was accomplished. :)
And also I’ve got a wonderful fic from my yuletide writer in a fandom that is (obviously) very dear to my heart:

House and Home (2625 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Tokyo Babylon
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sumeragi Subaru

Sometimes, Subaru's job breaks his heart. And other times everyday life does, too.

It focuses entirely on Subaru and his job as onmyouji and is just wonderful! Go check it out if you know TB at all. :D
Now that Christmas is over I can hopefully find the time to browse the collection for a bit!

yuletide was so much fun that I actually want to sit down and write next years yuletide letter right now.

Ao3 commenting meme (2011)

I’ve stumbled over this A03 commenting meme.
I’ve recently noticed that I’m using the Archive a
lot for reading these days. I thought I should take it. And it
was fun. Probably a thing I should do at least once a year from now on!

Here it goes:

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is then to go to Archive of Our own, and...

1) Look up an old favourite and let the writer know that you still love the story.
2) Find a story in your favourite fandom that you haven't read, or for which you haven't remembered to leave feedback.
3) Cheer up a friend by leaving feedback to their fic.
4) Go to the random tags view, select an interesting tag, and see of you can find something you like. repeat as needed.
5) Visit an old fandom that you aren't active in anymore (or a pairings that you've lost interest in, etc.) and see if there's any new interesting fic or re-read an old favourite.
6) Read a story in a fandom in which you've never read fic before.
5) Pick a category that you don't usually read and read some fic there (if you usually read RPF, maybe try some comics fic, if you're an anime fan, read fic about your favourite play, etc.)
6) Check out the comment thread on LJ or on DW where people have left links to their AO3 accounts, and see you can find anything new or interesting (and leave a link to your own fic as well, if you archive your fic to AO3).
7) Leave feedback to a fic that doesn't have any yet.
8) Make a rec post in your journal with all the good fic you found while doing this meme, and then link that post to the comments here so that others can enjoy the recs as well (alternatively you can just list your recs in a comment here if you don't want to make a whole post, or maybe use the bookmarking feature on AO3 if you have an account).

This is a totally no-pressure thing. You don't have to do all of these or any of these, they are mostly just to inspire you to broaden your horizons and go and read some fic.

And while actual comments are preferred, just leaving kudos is fine too if you don't have the time or energy for comments - most important is to just leave some kind of sign of appreciation for the writers and share the love. Also, you can both comment and leave kudos at AO3 without logging on, so you can participate even if you don't have an account there.
