There's a new mod at harlequinmerlin who would really like to revive the community in some way. So far, people aren't responding, but I find it hard to believe that there isn't *some* interest out there. If you're so inclined, head over and let her know.
I got my assignment for merlin_holidays and I have to say, I'm *really* excited about it. The prompts I was given are just up my alley. At least one of them is something I wish I'd thought to ask for, lol.
