Dearest family (and friends, if those of you who aren’t related by blood to us haven’t fled yet),
Guess what? It’s time for Anonymous Annatar again! More than that, this is our fourth year doing it! Time flies, doesn’t it?
I’m super excited about this fact, as those of you who have interacted with me in the months leading up to this know.
So, after last year’s scolding, we all now know that presents are important, so let’s get onto the business of exchanging them! Same rules apply as the last few years:
1. Keep your requests reasonable, so that the obsessive among us don’t look themselves into a workshop for years (where did you think Uncle Fëanor was for a couple months the first winter after Celebrimbor was born?!)
2. You can start posting gifts on December 24th, and they all need to be posted by 11:59 pm on December 31st. I’ll start hunting you all down and making you all sing carols to the Vanyar again if you don’t. And we all know how that went last time – those of you still banned from singing around the Vanyar under penalty of jail time will have an alternate punishment.
Let me know if those dates don’t work for you, we’ll figure out alternate plan.
Sign ups start when this is posted, and go until November 29th – I’m going to try and get assignments out on the 30th. If I don’t, it’ll be on December 2nd. So post your letter to Annatar in the comments.
Sorry for the slightly confusing schedule, I’m presenting my research on December 1st, so we’ll see how that goes (So if assignments come out with random mutterings about research articles, you know how I am – just look at the socks! And will somebody remember to check on the socks if I go missing?)
