Tuesday was my eighth wedding anniversary and I celebrated by taking a final for one of my classes. Only two and a half years till I have my Master's! Part-time in a discipline other than your undergrad takes a long fricking time. But we're going out tomorrow to a real place with reservations and the kids get grandparent baby-sitters for the evening. Win/win.

I'm still on a writing tear. I have a monster WIP which I never intended to be a monster, but might be long enough that I'm going to do a chapter-by-chapter release which I haven't done in years. I've also actually finished a lot of smaller fic:

Thematically Cohesive, Yuri!!! on Ice, Yurio/Otabek, T, 1178 words. Getting back to my roots by having Otabek badly apply makeup for Yuri P. I wrote this like hours after that Welcome to the Madness snippet came out, and I'm basically counting down the days till the full clip comes out.

You Should, ACCA, Jean/Nino, M, 1405 words. Post-series get-together fic. ACCA also had two little OVA clips released this week and I miss it so much. Probably already time for a rewatch.

Also, I last posted to DW a little over a month ago, when I was starting up with Haikyuu!! and now I've finished it, fallen deeply in love with it, and written fic for it:

If You Buy the Moon a Donut, Haikyuu!!, Yamaguchi/Tsukishima, M, 5261 words. That monster WIP I mentioned up there is also for these two, and I came to a point in it where I needed a writing break, so I was like, oh, I'll just write a one-shot for something else. And I wound up getting another idea for them because that's how my brain works. So anyway, if you know Haikyuu!! and ever thought Tsukishima needed to unwind some, this is kind of sort of the fic for you. And if you know Haikyuu!! and thought you'd like it if Yamaguchi burned up with jealousy over Tsukishima, this is definitely the fic for you.

Finally, I'm doing SASO ([community profile] sportsanime) for the first time! SASO is the Sports Anime Shipping Olympics, so just for sports-related anime and manga. But I know a lot of you are interested in those! It lasts all summer and I'm on Team Otabek/Yuri, which filled up after about three hours, so ??? But lots of time still left to sign up. Team sign ups close on the 17th, and grandstand signups close on the 26th. Grandstand is basically if you like prompting people a lot, maybe writing/drawing/making graphics a little, too, but no real commitment.

I've decided that I'm not going to crosspost to LJ anymore after this post, but I'm not deleting anything old over there, so it'll be around as a dead archive. If you're still around and interested in reading my very occasional posts, come follow me at [personal profile] marks. My Twitter and Tumblr are linked in my profile if you're more interested in those!

I’ve been writing up a storm lately, and it’s resulted in a lot of actual fic. Here’s a round-up, in case you don’t follow me on Tumblr or Twitter.

* Selfishness Must Always Be Forgiven, ACCA 13-ku Kansatsuka, Jean/Nino, Explicit, 5550 words - Set after episode 8, Jean tries to get Nino to realize their relationship is different from what Nino thinks it is.

* Without You, ACCA 13-ku Kansatsuka, Jean/Nino, Mature, 630 words - Set during episode 10, Jean does some stuff in front of an open window.

ACCA’s my new obsession, and before you can ask, no, it doesn’t stand for anything. But it has one of the best should-be-creepy-but-somehow-isn’t relationships I’ve ever seen, which is totally my jam, and has a surprisingly interesting main plot about politics and bread. If you’re at all interested in it, I recommend watching before reading my fics because they’ve both got huge spoilers. It's streaming on Crunchyroll, there are only two more episodes left, and I’m already grieving it ending.

* Detoxicated, Yuri!!! on ICE, Phichit/Chris, Victor/Yuri, implied other permutations therein, Mature, 1640 words - Phichit cracks the glass on his phone because of a literal run-in. Confession time: I also broke my phone recently, about a week before I wrote this, so there’s the very complicated writing inspiration process for you.

* A Lot of Heart, Prince of Tennis, Inui/Kaidoh, General Audiences, 5850 words - Inui gets recruited by the baseball team and actually quits tennis. Yep, writing in this again and having a great time, just deal with it.

And not mine, but for me because I'm very lucky: [personal profile] prillalar's Yuri on Ice tennis AU fanart is a thing of beauty. Oh, you didn't know Hal was an artist, too? You've been missing out.

In not-fic linking stuff, I’ve picked up a bunch of shows lately: March Comes in like a Lion, Powerless, Riverdale, Haikyuu!! (why so many exclamation points, anime?). Plus, [personal profile] barnacling and I did a trade off Skam and ACCA, so I’ll watch Skam after I finish Haikyuu. Though if I understand things correctly, I’m only supposed to watch one season of that? I don’t know how Norwegian shows work.

Also, I had most of last week off because of spring break from school, a vacation day, a snow day, and a day when my office was closed, which explains my “productivity” and I’m not looking forward to getting back to my regular packed schedule tomorrow. However, I’ve been sticking to a write for at least 15 minutes a day plan even on my normal days, and that produces around 500 words a day. So many words! I’m practically Stephen King.

Chocolate Box round 2 reveals went live overnight, which meant my inbox was filled with author notifications for people I like. :D I got three lovely fics:

Trothplight - Inui/Kaidoh, Prince of Tennis, G, 869 words by specialrhino - Tripping into an engagement in a cathedral, like all my pairings like to. :D This is just cuteness all over. And it includes Inui harassing Tezuka because that's the way things should be.

Oh My God, Finally - Phichit/Chris, Yuri!!! on ICE, E, 1746 words by Halrloprillalar - My beloved Hal wrote me a beloved treat, and basically it's perfect? It starts with Phichit and Chris roleplaying as Yuri and Victor a little too publicly and goes from there. I mean, obviously it's good, it's Hal!! Just read it.

The Warmth of the Sun - Gojyo/Hakkai, Saiyuki, T, 1227 words by Lady_Ganesh - I don't think she knows it, but I've loved Lady Ganesh's Saiyuki fic for like a decade now, so the fact that she wrote a treat for me just blows my mind. It's old Gojyo and old Hakkai being settled and not really knowing what to do with that fact. And Gojyo's hair fading from red to pink with age just cracks me up every time I think about it.

And I wrote three fics (well, one fic and two ficlets, really):

Looking So Long at These Pictures of You - Yuri/Victor, Yuri/Posters of Victor, Yuri!!! on ICE, T, 1702 words - Like, when I signed up for Yuri/Posters of Victor, I didn't think I'd wind up writing some shmoopy story of innocence, but I did and that's where we are, so just deal with it. I also describe Victor's outfits, if that's your thing. :D Written for 1010nabulation.

Solemnly Intoned - Yurio/Otabek, Yuri!!! on ICE, T, 409 words - Otabek's retiring and Yuri's pissed off about it because they're all getting old. But at least Otabek has more time to pursue his hobbies! Written for mousapelli. She's so pissed off that Otabek is a DJ and it makes me laugh every day.

Stuck with Me - Inui/Tezuka, Prince of Tennis, G, 311 words - InuKai is my OTP, but every time I feel like I need to get a handle on Prince of Tennis, I wind up writing these two again. They were the first pairing I ever wrote in this fandom, five thousand years ago! And here were are some more. Written for Halrloprillalar.

Feel free to read and comment if you want! Crossposted to Tumblr!

I set up my fandom twitter: [ profile] nonnonnegative! Anyone's welcome to add me over there, I've been adding everyone back so far.

I've also been busy writing Yuri!!! on Ice fic:

Like Two Ships, M, Yuuri/Victor, 1400 words - Yuuri is exhausted but Victor is leaving in eighteen hours. Sappy stuff! Plus, Yuuri's totally going to faint when he finds out how much Victor's body wash really costs.

Very Versatile, M, Phichit/Christophe, 1800 words - Phichit and Christophe after the Grand Prix Final, one of those things where I talked myself into shipping it for real while trying to work out the logistics. I think this one came out really cute and Phichit is a really fun POV character to write, so hopefully all 12 people who read it like it. :D

Also, I'm considering reverting back to spelling it Yuri in fic going forward because I keep defaulting to it when I'm typing and I think everyone's going to be fine differentiating between the two Yuris.

I also signed up for [community profile] chocolateboxcomm because [personal profile] prillalar did, and you should too!

I don't have huge hope that 2017 will be an improvement on 2016, but stranger things have happened I guess. On that cheerful note, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Here's a roundup of the stuff I wrote for Yuletide:

My assignment:
The Medium Place, The Good Place, Eleanor/Chidi, 4500 words, T - The one where Eleanor convinces TPTB to create The Medium Place and gets put in charge of it.

Got commended for my worldbuilding a lot on this one, and since my worldbuilding basically consisted of listing a lot of stuff I find mundane and annoying, I loved those comments dearly.

Full-length treats:
Never Stop Winning, Yuri!!! on Ice, Yuuri/Victor, 2500 words, E - Skating, Victor, winning, sex, love, they were all jumbled up together in Yuuri's head as one big thing, and Victor just counted himself lucky for being the person Yuuri fixated on.

lol had to get a YOI treat in there for the first and last year this will be Yuletide eligible. Also wanted the excuse to write some porn, not that I ever need much of an excuse for that.

An Irrevocable Condition, In the Heights - Miranda, Sonny/Graffiti Pete, 1500 words, T - Then later he told Usnavi he was taking two art classes this semester and all Usnavi did was smirk knowingly at him. Which. Fuck off, Usnavi.

I love In the Heights and have always kind of wanted to write something for it, so I'm glad I got a chance. Sonny's just so cute, and one of the ten-thousand drafts for the musical had Sonny and Graffiti Pete kissing during the blackout, so I was glad I wasn't making up the subtext I saw there.

Dead Things Can't Grow, Heathers (1988), Veronica/Heather Chandler, 1050 words, T - It’s been eight years since The Incident, which is what Veronica calls it in her head. Calling it The Incident sounds so innocent, like it was the time cow tipping went wrong, which in some small way it was.

One of those fics where I was laughing at myself as I wrote it, but I'm not sure anyone other than me found it funny. Dark humor! At least the people who read it seemed to like it. :D

Madness treats:
Whipped, Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo, Wylan/Jesper, 240 words - Jesper watching Wylan sleep, like a creeper.

Tangible, Gordon Korman - Macdonald Hall, Bruno/Boots, 350 words - Boots literally running to get letters from Bruno when they go to different universities.

Read them, if you'd like! Or don't! I like you all anyway. :D

I haven't had a chance to collect Yuletide recs together anywhere other than my AO3 bookmarks, but before reveals happen, here are the very very lovely gifts for me:

if there's one fool for you, then I am it by [ profile] Sonni89, The Good Place, Chidi/Eleanor, PG, 6,574 words

The Meaning of Things by [ profile] chiana606, Spring Awakening - Sheik/Sater, Hanschen/Ernst, PG, 814 words

A Whisper by [ profile] Missy (who also wrote me a treat last year!! she's great!!), Heathers, Veronica/JD (sort of), PG, 100 words

People are so generous!! I love Yuletide.

I wrote six things altogether - my assignment, three full-length treats in the Yuletide collection, and two ficlets in the Madness collection. I think my assignment is very obviously me, and one of the treats is obvious just because of the fandom. The rest, I don't know! But they're all doing pretty well; they've all got at least two handfuls of kudos and all of them have comments, including the Madness things.

But anyway, I DM'd [personal profile] mousapelli one of them because I thought she'd like it and she never uses Tumblr so she won't see it once I do a reveals post, but then I realized I have a LJ/DW! Which I can use! Any time I want! So I'm going to try to do that. I'm also going to set up an all-fandom Twitter in the next couple of days because my Twitter now is locked and RL, but fandom stuff has been bleeding onto it a LOT lately, and I don't really need ex-coworkers or my sister-in-law stumbling onto my revealing replies accidentally. So I'll link that here once it exists!

In other fandom stuff, if you follow me on tumblr, you already know that I'm swimming toward the deep end of Yuri!!! on Ice fandom. It's been nice because people from basically every major fandom I've ever been in are in it, too! And the fic is good, at least what I've read, because it's late December and not only is that drowning in fic time usually, but I've also got a 5 and 2 year old so I have lots of fun holiday stuff. Ten years ago, I would be in a fic coma, but now I'm just in a new loud toys and Lego building one.

But anyway, I wrote one thing about a week ago already, which is here, and I have three wips going at once, which is frankly an astronomical number for me.
marks: unce unce unce (Default)
I wrote three fics for Yuletide, all of which were way better received than I would have guessed while I was writing them. So yay!

Here's My Hat, And By the Way, I'm a Virgin, The Internship, Neha/Stuart, 2585 words, R - My original assignment! kissoffools and I actually matched on two fandoms/character sets, so I also have half of a Maze Runner fic for her on my hard drive, which I might finish for NYR. Anyway, this was a blast to write. I thought this movie was kind of dumb when I first saw it, but the characters are surprisingly adorable and it got under my skin in such a way that I offered it for Yuletide. And in researching for the fic, I got to watch the unrated version with 1000% more boobs in Dylan O'Brien's face! So there's that.

Bribery Will Get You Everywhere, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Santiago/Peralta, 2940 words, PG - The one where Santiago has no friends and drags Peralta to her family's Christmas party. The only unsurprising thing about this was that it was my most popular one, and that's because I wrote it as a treat in two hours. My fics always work out that way.

Choosing Me (or The Kelly Taylor Principle), The Mindy Project, Mindy/Danny, Mindy/Casey, 3665 words, PG - My recipient asked for an AU where Mindy doesn't go to Haiti, which I pretty much used as an excuse to write a lot of 90's references. But I feel like Mindy Kaling would approve of that.
marks: unce unce unce (Default)
First, Yuletide reveals, of course. I wrote three things:

Just Get Down, Another Takedown for [ profile] Agnes_Bean, Revenge, Nolan/Emily, PG-13, 5600 words.

My main assignment, which I was totally stoked to get, because Agnes_Bean's request was perfect. However, holy crap is it ever hard to write in Revenge! I had no idea until I actually sat down to try. This was definitely one of those pulling my hair out fics and I think it shows. Nolan's easy to write because he's such an over-the-top character, but it's really hard to A) get a handle on Emily and B) make it seem like her feelings for Nolan are genuine. I did what I could on both counts, but don't feel like I did that great. I might try again! Either way, I'm glad my recipient liked it.

Another Fine Mess You've Gotten Us Into for [ profile] bewarethesmirk, Teen Wolf RPF, Tyler Posey/Dylan O'Brien, R, 1017 words.

I wrote this treat in an hour. :D It's shower porn!

Dr. Bruno Walton, At Your Service for [ profile] melkyre, Gordon Korman's Macdonald Hall, Bruno and Boots Gen, G, 561 words

Just a little treat about Bruno playing doctor. Terrifying! And reviving my writing Mac Hall for Yuletide habit, which I've always liked. I've written 6 Macdonald Hall fics, and 5 have been for Yuletide.


In return, I got two lovely gifts:

The Cake Is A Lie by [ profile] Mosca, Revenge, Nolan/Padma, PG, 1212 words

A lovely little piece about Nolan and Padma, and the games Emily and Nolan play with each other. It had just the right edge that a Revenge fic should have, I think.

We Shape the Future Ourselves by [ profile] comixologist, Runaways, Chase/Gert, G, 623 words

I got a treat! :D! It's the fix-it fic I craved for Runaways and the author (whose name I adore, BTW) said she thinks she has some bigger ideas that she wants to play with. I can't wait!


And then a few more recs, for good measure:

Escapades Out on the D Train by [ profile] spoilers, Baby-Sitters Club, Claudia/Ashley, PG, 4239 words

College-aged Claudia fic! This is so cute, especially when Stacey figures out that Claudia is dating Ashley before Claudia even does. Also, there's Mary Anne buying dirty lingerie, which is definitely how she'd be at 18.

Wish Orbs Are Serious Lumping Business by [ profile] yeats, Parks and Recreation/Adventure Time, LSP gen, G, 2045 words

Never in a million years would I have pinned this crossover on yeats, but I should have because it's adorable and funny and well-written, which is all her. P&R and AT are pretty much my two favorite shows currently airing and if Lumpy Space Princess was going to switch bodies with anyone on this plane of existence, it would 100% be Donna Meagle. SO CUTE.

Nothing But a Line by [ profile] lordessrenegade, Stephen King's The Long Walk, Gen, R, 3819 words

And here's another fic written by someone I know, who is so sneaky that I never suspected her at all. JAI! I have this weird fascination with The Long Walk, I don't know why. I guess I like reading about teenagers suffering in dystopias??? But anyway, this is a great look at the book from another POV. Excellent, excellent stuff.

The Disorient Express by [ profile] screamlet, Political Animals, Gen, PG, 4115 words

T.J., Doug, Anne, and Margaret go on a trip to Europe together because they want to escape T.J. and Doug's parents and T.J.'s grandma is his best friend. I think all I wanted out of PA was some gen family fic, which is a little different than most people in fandom? But this scratched that itch perfectly.


One of my resolutions is to update here more often instead of just posting pictures of the baby to Twitter or reblogging shit on Tumblr, lolol. We'll see how that goes.

Happy New Year, everyone! I'm very excited about 2011 for obvious reasons, and I hope this is going to be a great year.

Anyway, [ profile] yuletide reveals are up. I haven't quite gotten around to reading everything I want yet, so expect the latest ever Yuletide recs post at some point. :D But I wrote three fics (yes, I got a little carried away at the end):

Christmas Wrapping - Parks and Recreation Gen, Leslie-centric with some Ron, 2422 words, G for [ profile] emilys_list - Leslie tries to make having Christmas alone work. This was my original assignment and I looooved writing in Parks & Rec fandom. If you couldn't tell, I'm kind of gravitating toward sitcom fandoms now. And if you couldn't before, you will after the next two fics.

Tapdancing in a Minefield - Modern Family, Alex/McKenzie, 1579 words, PG for [ profile] semirose - So, I was reading DYT letters and I saw that Semmi wanted a Modern Family fic about Alex a few years down the line questioning her sexuality and I thought yes, I want to write that. So I did! McKenzie actually isn't an OC, but she's close enough as she's never been on the show, but Haley's "I was McKenzie. I invented McKenzie" makes me laugh whenever I think about it, and there was my inspiration.

I guess this was my big fic this year? I was really surprised by the reaction I got to it. It's always the fics I write in a couple of hours that turn out that way. :D

Three Men and a Baby Minus a Man - Community, Abed/Troy-ish, 595 words, G for [ profile] shoemaster - Shoe likes Troy/Abed and babies and so do I. So I wrote about Abed finding one. You know how it is.

Incidentally, Shoe and Lea had a whole conversation about this fic where I could see it and I had to sit on my hands and not yell IT WAS ME. So anyway, Shoe, IT WAS ME.


I'd also like to thank lightningwaltz and [ profile] everysecondtues for my two wonderful A Softer World fics, and I want lists of all the strips that inspired you ASAP. :D

So you might have noticed I've been MIA for a while. I wasn't really completely away, but writing up posts just seemed to be the last thing on my mind. In the last month, I've moved into a new house, found out I'm having a BOY, found out that my amniotic fluid is on the low side, which means lots and lots of ultrasounds, and wrote a decent amount of fic.

Fic Stuff
- I finished [ profile] yuletide and I'm considering writing a treat for madness, but I don't know if I'll have the time. I have to wrap so many presents still, and my grandparents asked if our usual evening Christmas Eve get together could be bumped up to the afternoon, so I'm not sure. We'll see!
- I wrote a fic for [ profile] boostlethon, which I type "boostlethong" every time. It's here. I also have to read and review the fic for me! I'll do that today, once I get back from a last-minute Toys 'R Us trip.
- I also wrote for [ profile] sheldon_penny's Saturnalia exchange, which you might have seen yesterday. That's posted here.

No bandom at all! That said, I still have a few more fics I owe people, bandom included. I may also do [ profile] no_tags, since I was so sad about missing out last year. I mean, I might as well get in all the writing I can before spring rolls around and I have a little dependent thing taking up all my time. :D

Moving Stuff

- Moving is always tiring, but about ten times more when pregnant. I know, I know, great revelations. :D Either way, my house is beaaaaaautiful. I walk around going "I love my house!" all the time. Well, not out loud, but it's a close call. And our new furniture and appliances have all been delivered and we're almost unpacked already! Pretty good for only living here two weeks.

Baby Stuff

- Yes, Baby is a BOY. And a show-off. Like I said, I have slightly low amniotic fluid (which went up as of my last checkup \o/), which they found at my 20 week anatomy scan. I was really closer to 21 weeks then, now I'm at 25 weeks. Anyway, that means I got sent to the hospital for a scan on a better ultrasound machine and also that I got to start my "go every two weeks" checks about ten weeks earlier than I'd originally expected. That also means that I've had four ultrasounds since Thanksgiving, and kid has a personality. At the last one, the tech was like "oh, I hope you know what you're having" because the baby was like LOOK AT MY PENIS as soon as they started scanning me. [ profile] drunktuesdays said I'm carrying the spirit of Pete Wentz, which is a horrifying thing to say to an expecting mother. Once he was done showing off, he looked straight at the camera and had his hands on either side of his face. My husband said he looked like he was pointing at us all TONIGHT, YOU. I love my creepy baby.
- Low fluid or not, the baby's anatomy is 100% great and he already weighs about 1.8 pounds. \o/ Just stay in there for three more months, kiddo.
- Now that holiday stuff is winding down, I can start focusing on baby stuff and jeez, we need a lot of stuff. BABIES NEED A LOT OF STUFF, DID YOU KNOW?
- He just kicked me for the ten thousandth time this morning.

...Yeah, that was long. I really have to update more often.

Let's Get Behind the Wheel
PG, 5080 words, Sheldon/Penny

Summary: Sheldon takes another stab at driving lessons with Penny's help. Gratuitous mentions of Ewoks, constellations, and Dr. Mario ensue.
A/N: Written for [ profile] jazzfic, based on the prompt "some sort of fight happens between the boys, leaving Sheldon on the outside with Penny as his ally." This doesn't exactly fit that, but I hope you like it anyway. Happy Saturnalia!

Porn Battle

I wrote something else for the Porn Battle. More to come, pun intended, etc.

Best Laid Plans, DC Comics, Cassie/Kon/Tim (Wonder Girl/Superboy/Red Robin), R, 1295 words, prompt: best friends. Set in currentish canon, you know, with them all BEING ALIVE AGAIN. I really really really love Cassie Sandsmark. Really.

Previous PB IX ficlets:

Fic rec

In the Lurch, Prince of Tennis, Inui/Kaidoh, G, 5300 words by [ profile] prillalar - I swear, I'm always shocked by how short Hal's fics are because they say so much in so few words. She wrote this for her birthday and it has a plot twist so good that I'm sad that I can't spoil it here. BUT IT'S SO GOOD AND FUNNY AND SWEET.

Other news

Uh, so I kind of took the online test for Jeopardy! today. It was fun! Probably nothing will come of it, since I know I got things wrong and second round auditions are a little randomized anyway, but I got a question about Lady Gaga, which makes everything all right. Not so all right: I totally knew the football question, but I got the one about Broadway musicals wrong. The world's gone topsy-turvy!

Jon Walker is my favorite person today! Not only did he link one of my favorite Built to Spill songs ever, but he also confirmed that TYV is touring the U.S. in March and April with details to come. Yay. \o/

So I wrote some Ryan/Jon porn to commemorate that! Oh fine, I really wrote it a couple of days ago, but I just posted it to the porn battle:

Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, Ryan/Jon, R, 917 words, prompts: in public, wall, kneel. If I'm supposed warn for snowballing and cockslapping, then there's your warning, but it's honestly not that graphic. Comments always welcome! :D I think you can use Open ID with your LJ account over there if you don't have DW account.

I also stole a meme from [ profile] stealstheashes. Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don't cheat! (I cheated a little, but it's not like I remembered what questions corresponded to what. Also, these aren't really my five favorite TV shows, just five shows currently on-the-air that I watch.)

Better Than None at All, Bonnie & Damon Gen, PG, 2166 words. Originally written for mystikheather for Yuletide 2009, reposted for completeness. No warnings, comments welcome.

Bonnie didn't mean for it to happen. But that was kind of a clichéd thing to say, wasn't it? )

I meant to mention that [ profile] popoffacork reveals happened a couple of days ago and I wrote Lately It Occurs to Me, Ryan/Spencer, NC-17, 3600 words, set post-breakup. The title's from the Grateful Dead because that's just how I roll. It's an okay fic! I've done better stuff with them, but for basically PWP I think it's decent enough. [ profile] allegedlykyle liked it and that's what's important.

[ profile] lyo and [ profile] stephanometra wrote the AU with fairies and marriage of convenience and shit for me, and I love them both because they're great and they wrote me the fic of my heart. ♥♥♥

Oh, I'm doing [ profile] bandombigbang this year. I wonder how many people will. I did some stats on it while I was at work yesterday (LOOK, I WAS BORED) and both years had about 30-35% of signups actually finish. I guess that makes sense for a fest with a high word count and that's not an exchange for anyone. But I was so sad I couldn't play last year that I'll almost certainly finish. \o/

Tonight I'm going to have Brazilian barbecue because it's my husband's birthday! He's now older than me for four and a half months.

[ profile] stealstheashes, give me my [ profile] greekrow assignment. :D

My favorite time of the New Year, when Yuletide reveals are made. :D

Thank you to [ profile] boundbyspells and [ profile] htbthomas for my lovely Community fics! I really did love them both.

I wrote... a lot and I'll probably repost the text here for completeness in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, here are my fics:

The Vampire Diaries (TV version) - Better Than None at All, Bonnie & Damon gen, T, 2160 words. A big challenge, but an enjoyable one. My request was for Damon saving someone with no gain to himself, which, well, it's Damon. :D I think I did an okay job at it, though.

The Like RPF - Once Things Look Up, Z/Tennessee, T, 4454 words, WWII AU. This one was pretty obviously me, considering I didn't comment on a Like fic. I wrote this in one day. I took a pinch hit on the 22nd, thinking oh, I'll bang out 1000 words of Z and mostly ignore the prompt, but kinetikatrue's prompt for a WAC pilot AU was too intriguing to me. Much googling and frantic writing took place and I ended up with 4500 words. I think I did all right, considering the time crunch.

Greek - God Bless Us, Evan Chambers, Casey/Cappie/Evan, T, 3779 words. Wrote this one in a day, too. LOL self, what were you thinking? Well, I know exactly what I was thinking: I WANT TO WRITE [ profile] stealstheashes' PROMPT AND FIX THE GREEK FINALE! So I did, and made Lea read it over and only published it when she gushed at me. :D

Community - Next Step: Blood Transfusions, Abed/Troy, G, 308 words. Mistletoe Yuletide treat for [ profile] loveyouallwrong! I love her and I love them and this is what came out.

Macdonald Hall - A Grand Gesture Involving Piranhas, Cathy/Diane, G, 280 words. Yuletide means Mac Hall and this year is no different. :D I think this means Mac Hall finally qualifies as one of my remix fandoms now. It only took me about four years.

In case you're adding in your head, I wrote over 10,000 words for Yuletide. It was a pretty good year as far as distribution of pairings/characters go: I wrote gen, two femslash fics, one slash fic, and one het threesome fic.

Oh, and just for the record? If you hide your hit counts as your normal preferences, it also hides them when you post anonymously, which I should have figured but didn't until I saw one of my fics when I was logged out. You know, for future reference if anyone's not trying to leave an anonymous trail of breadcrumbs.

More end of the year WIP Amnesty. This is Brendon/Ryan sex pollen porn set during the cabin days. Or rather, it's all of the sexy lead-up and a bit of the porn.

Nature Boy, Brendon/Ryan, implied GSF, R, 1200 words. Warnings: dubious consent and a never-to-be finished WIP

When Brendon finds him, Ryan is curled up on the couch, an ancient afghan thrown over his legs. His eyes are half-closed and he's petting his own face. )

The WIP Amnesty I promised all of you! I started writing this about a year ago, and I've come to the conclusion that I'm never going to finish it, but it's 10,500 words, so it seems like a waste to never put it anywhere. It's Ryan/Spencer, where Spencer is having a bit of a whatever crisis happens before you turn 30. He's recently divorced and has joint custody of his son, and he's just messed up enough that he winds up letting Ryan take care of him for once. I fully admit that last part was my motivation for the fic. I threw my outline at the end so it's not left on a total cliffhanger.

I had really planned on finishing it, but it's so obviously a pre-split canon fic that I couldn't figure out how to salvage it and lost my motivation. Which is too bad because I actually like my writing here, and if you've ever talked with me about my writing, you'll know how unusual that is. Ash is the only person who's read it so far and I hope she won't be too disappointed by me giving up on it. :D

God, I hope this fits in one LJ post.

Offbeat, Ryan/Spencer, 10,500 words, R, NEVER TO BE FINISHED WIP

My profile page is a blizzard. Thank you, awesome people, both named and anonymous. I'm just sorry that I've been so busy that I didn't have time to reciprocate before LJ yanked away the freebie.

All to Catch a Thief
PG, 9200 words, Brendon/Ryan

Summary: Brendon's life is comatose until someone breaks into every house in town except his. A fairy tale about criminals.
A/N: AU fic written for [ profile] drawn_to, and inspired by the day Ryan Ross looked like this and [ profile] heartequals' requests for snow, bright colors, shenanigans, and no porn. I hope you like your gift! :D

Once upon a time, there was a boy who lived in a sleepy town. )
