Yay, I got my hd_worldcup assignment! :D I'm only a backup author, but that in and of itself is surprising enough. With my age and lack of experience, I didn't expect to even get assigned to a team, much less the one I wanted (even though it seems like it wasn't most people's first choice). I mean, I sorta wanted Team Canon, since I always try to stick to canon characterisations, but the category is a little bit too arbitrary IMO. So I'm happy with DH, because I can still characterise as canonly as I want :) I don't think I have to do anything unless someone drops out, which might be a problem, since the schedule is already so tight and fics are due around midterms/Explore hosting, but I'm sure I'll work something out. I'm just sad that I won't get to plan out a fic, because the prompts are so fantastic.
Even if I don't end up writing anything, I'll be happy to cheer my team on. We've got some FREAKING AMAZING authors and artists on board, and I'm so excited to see what they put out.
