A day before signups close...  
You know yuletide is getting big when...

- there are over a hundred offers for your four fandoms (total - that doesn't mean 100 people match) Still, since I don't ask for anything particularly bizarre, I bet I match on at least fifty, easily. FIFTY!!!!

- there are a hundred offers to write Discworld, and you didn't request Discworld. A hundred!

- you watch the numbers on one of the fandoms you offered to write, hoping other people STOP offering on it because they're reducing your chances

- you're excited that someone finally requested Pensacola: Wings of Gold fic, even though you've NEVER ACTUALLY SEEN THE SHOW, just because it's Trucco's former show.

- you cynically wonder how many of these cheerful bright eyed newbies are gonna default.

- Chuck. I DO NOT GET IT. (I enjoy the show as much as the next person but, c'mon, 41 REQUESTS?!?!?!) There are lots of other fandoms, people!

- 16 brave people volunteered to write Deadwood. *loves*

- and 11 people want to write BSG RPF. *chortles* That will either be awesome or awesomely bad.

- oh, and the two people who tried to cheat and sneak in Trek and Prince of Tennis: still have no offers to write for them. hahaha. karmic justice, yo.

Ooh, what page are you finding those stats at? I want to see if anyone besides me has requested/offered my cracky mermaid fandom.

Never mind, found it! Dude, looks like I and only one other person thus far have requested it.

Since I knew it was you *g*, I kept an eye on it and I can tell you, until yesterday, it was only you! It made me sad that no one else could/would offer it for you. Especially since your description is so marvelously fun. It's on Nickelodeon or something, right? I have vague memories of you talking about it before.
