Wanted to post a treat to Yuletide this year and was actually all excited, but failed to meet the posting deadline due to xmas and work and RL. Argh?

Why did I think posting treats went on for longer? I don't know. Double argh.

ETA: Fortunately, I am still (just) in time to post to the Madness collection. Phew! Not all is lost. :-) I never actually knew what the Madness collection was before now, so this has been a learning experience all around. ;-)

They do! You can still post to Yuletide Madness for the next half hour, if your treat's done.

Madness is really a catch-all collection for:

1) fic that doesn't quite match the recip's prompt,
2) fic that doesn't meet the minimum word count,
3) fic for a previous year's Yuletide prompt,
4) fic that you don't want to become the recip's main gift for...reasons,
and 5) fic that you couldn't complete in time for the main collection.

(And probably other categories that I'm forgetting.) So your story will fit right in!

Either of those options is permitted; since there's no possibility that a Madness treat could be turned into a recip's main gift, there's a much more laissez-faire attitude towards the collection in general.

That said, most people try to give treats that match the prompt as closely as possible. I've seen Madness stories gifted to multiple recips when those recips' prompts were very similar and there was no real way for the author to choose among them, but I don't think I've ever seen a story gifted to multiple recips just on the basis of its fandom.
