I do need a couple of back-up writers though, and since I know people's circumstances have changed since sign-up, I'm making a plea here instead of sending out an e-mail. If you think you'll have any time to write a back-up fic, please comment here or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll then send out the assignments that still need to be written, and you can decide whether or not any of them strike your fancy.
Please volunteer to help out if you can! I really want everyone to have a story for the holidays.
