Were you naughty this year? Were you nice?

Well, no matter what list you’re on, or what winter holiday(s) you celebrate, Santa’s brought you something good: the final issue of our tenth year! There’s plenty of words and images packed in here to warm your heart … and other parts. And it’s definitely your size. (We checked. Twice.)

As always, if you like what you see here, please pass on the gift you’ve been given by doing two things: telling the creator and telling a friend! Our artists and authors have spent a lot of time and effort making your gifts, and they deserve to be recognized! Comments, reblogs, retweets, shared links, signal boosts, shouting from the rooftops: all are appreciated! And all are the fuel that helps us keep this long-running free fiction project going year after year.

Of course, there’s no rest for the smutty, and just like how Santa’s elves get back to work on the 26th, we’ve already got 2016’s themes all laid out. We’re always looking for new participants from all experience levels, so whether you’re a published creator or this is your first time putting pen to paper, we want your stories and your art! Look for the signups and come join the fun!

From all your editors here: Here’s to a good end to 2015, and we’ll see you next year!
