Faster, faster!  
Helicopters are circling the neighborhood, and yet I'm too distracted by trying to sign up for Yuletide to even wonder why.

Oh, Yuletide. I always seem to miss the window for submitting fandoms, and then when I go to see what's available to request/offer, it's this discombobulating experience of "Huh?" There are a lot of comics/graphic-novels/anime fandoms, most of which I don't know but which would be confounding to me anyway. Writing fanfic for an animated medium just glitches for me. If I've seen a film version with actors, it's possible, but otherwise... *brainlock* There are TV shows I don't watch, books I've never read or didn't like (hi, Susan Cooper!), and other puzzling things. Though I'm pretty sure I have these same thoughts every year. :D

Mainly, it's the pressure of, "But could I write a minimum-thousand-word story for this?" Because we all know my micro-ficcing tendencies. OTOH, I see that "Cities, Anthropomorphic" is a category, and I actually wrote something for that last year as an extra treat. Still... probably a fluke.

Bayern Munich RPF is on the list, and that rings a bell because it's the soccer team my daughter has gone nuts over (verified via Google, because how many teams have a player named Schweinsteiger ("pig overseer," or pig farmer))?

Nonetheless, I _will_ find something. And you should, too. Only two days left, and that's probably on European time!

I have it on good authority (heliokleia and amodalie are my reliable sources!) that Bastien Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski are a very popular RPF slash pairing, if it helps! Although since your daughter is nuts over Bayern maybe stick to gen or het?!!

Good luck! :)

Well, I guess this explains the category, then!

I am not going to write it, but I was surprised to see it listed-- possibly because her love of that team seems to random (well, World Cup aside), and I kind of boggle that anyone else is that interested.

Though Cricket RPF is a category too, so there's that!

My friend Julie is nuts about the German players too; has been for years so it's beginning to look like an epidemic! ;)

Now Cricket RPF! That's my cup of tea, even if it's more obscure than most categories, and my OTP was always Steve Rhodes/Mark Ramprakash. There are so many deep, dark, RPF sekrits! *looks guilty*
