Here's my actual yuletide reveal post, vs. my brief sketching out of one.
( warning: here there be talking )
General comments: yuletide this year was overall great, though in some ways incredibly disheartening. I still feel kind of like I "failed" it but in the long run I am happy with the fics I wrote (and got an amazing fic in return <3! thanks, nextian :D!) even though I worry that they might've not served their intended purpose.
Also, some people have mentioned vaguely that I should go back and add "character of color" tags to my two yuletide madness fic as both Astrid and Agent Ellison are African-American. I am not sure if I should do this, and would like your advice? I kind of wrote it disregarding race, as I know my privelege, lack of real knowledge, etc. makes writing-while-regarding kind of a minefield? And I don't want to claim it as CoC fic on that basis? But at the same time, maybe I should because they are.
UM HALP PLEASE.
