1) I got my Yuletide assignment! It's oddly specific, which is a bit worrying as my first instinct is a "don't wanna" - right now it feels a lot like writing to spec. But will think on it.

2) I had a belated epiphany in which I realised that 'Pillar of Tennis' (as in Prince of Tennis) is a reference to the Chinese concept of 挑大梁 (tiǎo dà liáng, i.e. to play a leading role, or to bear a heavy responsibility) which probably transformed into the equivalent/similar Japanese cultural concept (挑 means to carry; 大梁 means the big/main pillar). And which is again hilarious because PoT is exactly like theatre, so when Tezuka exhorted Echizen to become the pillar of Seigaku, he's also hoping that Echizen becomes the main performer. Exactly right, then.

3) Discovered some deleted scenes of Nirvana in Fire: part 1 and part 2

4) And always, a reminder why I like Yujin so much: where Lord Marquis Yan agrees to help Mei Changsu

5) Apparently my Patronus is a Marsh Harrier.

Oh yes, specific Yuletides are always tricky. My very first one was like that but thankfully I was able to write another one of their prompts.

Yikes, sorry! My assignment is more specific than I'm used to as well, though still general enough (and thankfully, specific in a way I like, or at least don't mind) to make it work. Worst case, remember that optional details are optional - there's nothing wrong with only giving them some of the things they've asked for on that list or doing something completely different with the characters that they picked, since 1000+ words with the characters in it is all that you're obliged to do. I usually throw a ton of prompts per fandom just to avoid causing my writer the feeling that you've got - surprised more people don't Yuletide that way. O_o

Also, thank you!!! for sharing the deleted scenes!!! ♥
