How do you deal with it when you've matched only on currently airing series? This is the case for all of my holiday exchanges, not just Yuletide, and I'm not certain what to do. I'm not really one to leave writing to the last minute, but I also worry about a story getting jossed before my recipient ever gets to read it. Is it bad etiquette to give somebody something that turns out to be AU? I wouldn't be upset about that sort of gift myself, but I put a high priority on being a flexible recipient.
