Holiday fest season is coming and I need to organize my thoughts, plan out what I'm doing, etc.
Here's what I'm thinking:

So, as you all know, since I whined about it a while back, I didn't get into Erised this year, which allows me to plan my time a bit differently than I originally anticipated.
BTW, I did contemplate signing up as a pinch-hitter, but in the end I decided not to, basically because I don't feel like that's fair to me or to the person who could be my recipient. After all, people spend months crafting their gift, and it shows. It's not that unusual to see fics over 100K in Erised.
Therefore, even if I could slap something together in a few weeks (which is not guaranteed), I'd feel like my recipient would getting cheated out of a 'proper' fic. Honestly, I'd feel bad gifting anything less than 20K, and that usually takes me a while.
And that's even if I got picked to write a pinch in the first place, which is also not guaranteed. And with the mood I'm in right now, I'd prolly see not getting picked as another rejection...*
Anyway, the bottom line is, after a lot of soul searching, vacillating, and driving the people in Slash Chat™ crazy, I've decided not to do it. *sigh*

*Yes, I'm aware the Erised signups are strictly first-come/first-served, and it was my fault I was too late to get in, but it still feels like a rejection, K? I didn't say I was always logical. :P)

That still leaves me a bunch of fests in which I can play, though. :)

Therefore, here's my list of fall and holiday fests in which I will likely will participate (assuming they are running this year).

In addition, I'm considering:

[ profile] smutty_claus (although my luck participating in het only fests during the holidays is not the best).
Also, [community profile] lupin_snape is taking a poll about maybe having a fest, so maybe they'll make it a holiday one? That could be cool. :)

Have I missed any you think I'd enjoy? If so, poke me. :)

So really, December will still be crazy. Maybe everything worked out for the best in the end?
Yeah, I'm going with that. :P
