101, actually! This is so awesome!
We’re going to try to think of something special to do.

It’s time for out 2013 Christmas Charity fic drive! I’m so excited about this! I know that there are already people who have expressed interest in donating, so I know people are a bit excited, but I ask you to read the below very carefully so that this all goes smoothly.
How this works:
You get fic for donating to charity! For ever $5 donated you will get approximately 500 words. We are capping it at 2000 words, or $20. Feel free to donate more than $20 if you want to, but the word cap is 2000. Of course, there is the possibility that we get really into writing a story and go over the cap. But don’t expect more than 2000 words if you donate more than $20.
Here’s a list of charities you can donate to:
Toys for Tots
The Make a Wish Foundation
Wounded Warrior Project
The Christmas Spirit Foundation
The Holiday Project
Food For the Hungry
Made by Survivors
If there’s a charity you like that’s not on the list, let us know and we’ll add it!
So How Do You Get Your Fic?
Once you’ve donated, you should get an email confirmation. Take a screenshot of that email and send it to email@example.com with the subject “Christmas Charity Fic”. You can black out important info like your credit card number. We just need to be able to see your name and the amount donated.
Along with this screenshot, send us your prompt. If can be as specific or non-specific as you’d like. Pick a ship from our Ship List and let us know what you want to read. Just a few restrictions:
If for some reason you just want to donate and you don’t really care about getting a fic, just say so in your email and we’ll randomly pick a ship.
We’ll accept prompts until Christmas Eve. However, if for some reason you make your donation before then but don’t get your email confirmation until after, let us know and we can work around it.
How to Get Your Fic
We’ll being posting our finished products on the OTP tumblr on Christmas Eve. Posting will probably happen over the following week depending on our level of productivity. We’ll try to make sure we get an email with a link to your story to you as soon as it’s posted.
We really hope you guys decide to take part in this. $5 really isn’t that much, but anything at all can make a huge difference to people in need. Please reblog share this to spread the word.

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Joyous Holiday Season Greetings to All!
This week Katie and Emily get really into analyzing Boardwalk Empire, do even more freaking out over Mindy and Danny, discuss OTP’s Christmas events, and discuss Mal and Inara from Firefly.

I know it’s not shippy, but I made this and I really liked it, so I decided to post it here.
For our Christmas episode, we’ll be counting down our 10 favorite Christmas movies. Tell us what your favorites are! If we get enough lists, we’ll add them all together and do fancy maths to rank them as a user-generated list. Just send us a message. Rank them, don’t, it doesn’t matter. Just let us know what Christmas movies you love!
Also, there’s a very strong possibility we’ll be doing another charity fic drive for Christmas, so keep your eyes peeled! We’ll be making a post about it soon.
