I say yule, you say tide!

Slightly belated salutations to you, bringer of Yuletide cheer! I'm super excited you're writing for me and I hope this post is helpful to you.

First things first, the number-one factor I look for in a fic is credibility. If you decide to write a genderswapped fic where everyone speaks only in iambic pentameter, that's fabulous! As long as you sell me on it and it doesn't come across like you've shoved a bunch of TVtropes pages into a blender just to see what comes out. One thing I love about Yuletide is how it stretches the creativity of everyone involved and I always enjoy seeing just how wildly different another person's approach to canon can be from my own. Any rating is fine by me, but I'm not a fan of fic being used as either a battering ram for some undesirable character or a soapbox for your thoughts on whatever it is the canon's done wrong. That said, I've honestly never received a Yuletide fic I didn't enjoy and I'm sure whatever you come up with will be made of glory and snickerdoodles.

If you need further details on anything, you can always send me an anon ask on Tumblr, where I'm yviwashere.
