I ended up writing two stories for my Yuletide recipient this year, one in the fandom I matched on and another in a fandom I hadn't thought to offer but very much enjoyed. Every year I tell myself, "Self, don't go crazy and write a super-long story you won't have adequate time to really revise and obsessively work over the way you like to." Occasionally I listen to myself, but then there are other years when I write ridiculously long Saved By the Bell stories, or this year, when I wrote one long story:

Con Affetto (8256 words) by fearlessfan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Pitch Perfect (2012)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Beca/Chloe
Characters: Beca (Pitch Perfect), Chloe (Pitch Perfect), Fat Amy

Beca and Chloe are friends, that won't change. They'll just be friends who do other stuff, too.

(which I'd planned to clock in at around 4K words and ended up north of 8K. But shorter than my first draft of almost 10K. So a semi-win?) and then another story in addition:

New Year's Eve (1825 words) by fearlessfan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Mindy Project
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Danny Castellano/Mindy Lahiri
Characters: Danny Castellano, Mindy Lahiri

Danny and Mindy make a bet over who will deliver the first baby of 2013.

I always stress over Yuletide, but in the end it's always worth it, especially the last couple of years when my Yuletide stories have turned out to be the only stories I've posted for the year. I'm hoping that 2013 will be better on that front. I have a couple of stories I want to finish, or at least think I might maybe be able to wrestle into something resembling a satisfying smaller version of what I'd imagined it being, so who knows! Maybe 2013 will be the year I get back in gear.

And I was extra-psyched to realize that you also wrote one of my favorite Office fics back in the day (Spring Cleaning). Seriously, this year was great for me, THANK YOU. <3!

Hello to you!! Thank you for this awesome comment, and truthfully, this was a great Yueltide experience for me because your requests were so fantastic! I really only meant to write one story, but the Mindy Project request you wrote just wouldn't stop bouncing around in my head after I'd uploaded my main story, and so I found myself writing notes to myself at work and typing up snippets right before I went to bed the last couple of days before Christmas. Writing both stories was super fun, and I'm so thrilled you enjoyed them!

And thank you so much for the kind words about Spring Cleaning!
