Birthdays: February and March

I'm combining February and March because the March baby is really early, so it wouldn't help to make a post on 1st March anyway.

First, on 09th Feb, we have lanalucy!

Lanalucy's wishlist is here, and it's not too late to start making something now! If you've already got something underway, now's the time to finish it up and/or get it to beta.

I'll post again on the 9th, and you can comment there with your gift!

And next, on 02nd Mar, we have severina2001!

Severina's wishlist is over here, and it's not too early to start thinking of what you want to make! February's a short month, after all, and it'll be over before you know it!



Also! Also!

This year I'm going to try something new. Instead of commenting at the start of the year who you want to write for (which might be six months in the future, and always in motion the future is XD), I'm going to be screening comments on the monthly birthday summary posts, like this one here, and you leave a comment HERE to tell me if you're going to be making anything. This way, we'll probably get a more realistic count, and I have the time to find a pinch hitter if one becomes necessary *fingers crossed that it isn't*

Remember, there's no minimum limit on the gift you can leave (I'm sure even a 100-word drabble is greatly appreciated - if 15 people leave 100 words that's 1.5k already), and you can make as many as you want throughout the year!

Comments are screened, so leave a note if you're making anything for either of them!
