Beginning this Saturday and going on through Sunday, the Young Writers Society will be celebrating Christmas! Why? No reason.

This means that for the entire weekend, we're encouraging everyone to give away as many gifts as possible. To view your gifts, or to give someone else a gift, click on 'My YWS.' Then look for the 'Gifts' tab:

We'll even have some rankings set up for the most generous (total point value of the gifts), and for the most gifts given. So, just something stupid and fun.

Let's shoot for... 10,000 gifts total!

Awww... :3 I think I should go review right about now. I haven't done that in a while.

And pardon my trollish comment:


See, I've never once in my life had the chance to say that on a forum or in comments. :D So it's a first first. xD

See now what other website has stuff like this? None I know of. :p YWS forevasss lol.

:( My measly amount of points will not amount to much.
If words are just letters put together, why do we decide on what they mean?

I step away from the grammar to review the story.

I don't do poetry.

Aow.. how sweet.. I haven't given away a gift ever.. what a cruel Demon I am. But this reviewing-episode of mine has given me a great amount of points so I think I'm gonna take a pause reviewing and go give my beloved friends on YWS some gifts! :D
"Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice." - Robert Frost

I'm really determined to make it onto that leader-board. I need to get rid of all of these points anyhow. BRING IT.

Quick! Do some reviews and get more points. :)

I'll definitely be participating. I only have around 4600 points, but that's better than nothing, and I'm still reviewing to get more. =D

[Griffinkeeper] 10:45 pm: The guard gives Firearris the Weasel.
[Firearris] 10:46 pm: aquires the weasel and renames it "Cat"

Take that, Lumi.

Ho-ho-ho! *Sprays confetti in everyone's hair and cover the ground with sparkles and glitter* This is a really awesome and insanely fun idea and I love the idea of having Christmas halfway through the year, I'm sure it's gonna put a smile on everyone's face! I am definitely going to try and give gifts to as many of my awesome YWS buddies as I can, hopefully I'll have enough points!

Oh and Merry Christmas everyone, I'll see you all around and make sure you give everyone super fun presents! This is gonna' be an unforgettable Christmas!

I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
