Ah fuck this. I was an idiot and got EST and PST confused and therefore missed NotPrimeTime noms.
Basically this means I'm not sure if I can participate this year. Looking at the tagset it looks like there might be enough fandom/character combinations for me to make a min amount of requests but not sure if I can scrape together min offers.
That stresses me out every time I sign up for a fest! Why don't admins use UTC? It's even more confusing when some countries are on daylight saving and others aren't.
On the bright side, sometimes offering from everyone else's noms can be a pleasant surprise -- and a challenge. (I never thought I would write Bella/Antonin, after all. :) )
Yea, I mean I usually end up offering at least some things I didn't nom but it's stressful.
And I do hope you get a chance to finish that fic someday ;)
I only have one Antonin chapter and one Rodolphus chapter to go, don't worry. (My Roddy muse is stuck in Azkaban or something, he's really difficult to write!)
Although I will admit to being side-tracked by Game of Thrones fic...
Game of Thrones is totally a legitimate thing by which to be distracted :) What do you read in GoT?
Mostly fics about my OTP (probably the reaction of every single fanfic reader!). Cat/Jaime fics are usually surprisingly in character, but at either extreme of fluff or non-con, so it's always a gamble when I click on a link. Recently I've been trying to find stories focusing on the pre-Rebellion Kingsguard because they have interesting character issues -- and Arthur Dayne was obviously a huge influence on Jaime in canon, so I like seeing where people go with that. House-wise I seem to enjoy fics about the Martells and the Lannisters far more than, say, the Starks or Greyjoys. (Tywin and Oberyn in particular, I'd love to find some character-driven fic about them.) I'm still looking for a GoT equivalent of the Potterverse's "Two Worlds and in-Between" or "Pawn to Queen," a long, juicy epic that I can sink my teeth into, but I suppose that's canon. :)
So your OTP is Cat/Jaime? That's interesting and certainly not a paring I would have ever considered seriously myself. But then, lol, I ship the weirdest things all the time so, yay rarepairs :D

*laughs* No, my OTP is Cersei/Jaime. (How could I forget to mention that?) Aside from those two, I mostly ship rarepairs. It feels weird having a popular OTP, I'm always amazed by the mountains of fic.
What Thrones fics are you reading at the moment?
Ah ok that makes sense. I just wasn't sure from your last comment. I love Jaime/Cersei, though I'm not quite as passionate about them as some other ships in other fandoms. They're pretty much the only GoT/ASoIaF pair I ship, other than Renly/Loras.
It's weird, but I'm not actually too into the fandom from the writing/reading point of view. When I do read stuff, it's mostly Jaime/Cersei or Renly/Lora's or something about Sansa or some other thing that I find interesting atm.
