Welcome to LJSanta 2011: Power of Yuletide

LJSanta is a Secret Santa fic swap that's been running for a few years now. People write fanfics based on L.J. Smith's books for other people, and recieve one in return. It's a lot of fun.

The Fics are all in for 2011, a few weeks late due to a disproportionate number of deadbeats and some truly amazing backup writers who needed a few extra weeks. Author names and deadbeats have been revealed! Please take the time to contact the person who wrote your fic and thank them, and try to make the effort to contact anyone whose story you liked and let them know too!

Thank you for participating (especially the backup writers, who really saved the day), enjoy the fics, and thank your Santas!

The below people signed up and then didn't write their assignments. Someone wrote a story for each of them, and they gave nothing back. As a result, they will not be allowed to participate in future years of LJSanta.
Sapphire
Kivire V


Two additional deadbeats will be allowed to participate again in the future if they so choose, due to extenuating circumstances and past performance history, even though they have failed their giftees this year.

  • For those who haven't read the series, 'Power of Yuletide' is a play on the 'Power of [element] have I over thee' lines from the Secret Circle trilogy. There is no clever original artwork this year due to Incanto and LM's busy schedules, but it will be back next year.

    This year's LJSanta is run by Incanto, with backup and/or moral support provided by Lindamarie and Poppy.
