Don't forget to check out the Weiss Kreuzmas stories! The ones I've read so far are great.

I received Good Intentions, a funny and bittersweet and slightly heart-wrenching Nagi/Mamoru story.

I wrote You Can't Make an Omelet Without Breaking Some Telepaths, about Crawford's work to get Schuldig in place.

Hilariously, Slate then published this article about how violent and terrible that idiom is. Yes, yes it is. That's why it was the perfect title. Hahah.

Then there was Yuletide!

A reminder to read my gift fic, The Ghost of the Grand Hotel, if you know Twin Peaks. Don't let the typo in the summary put you off, it's really, really good.

I wrote three stories:

Due Diligence, a prequel Tiger and Bunny fic about Kotetsu and Tomoe as they wait for Kaede to arrive.

I wrote a fun little RPF AU trifle, To Go and Boldly Raid Someone Else's Cargo, where Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are space pirates, because how could I resist writing that, people.

And then there was the first fic I started, back when letters went up, and the last fic I finished, because the ending! The ending almost killed me. The Not Entirely Accurate Chronicle of John Polidori, Genius Physician and Brilliant Writer, and His Rather Less Distinguished Companions is from the point of view of the physician who accompanied Lord Byron on his rather infamous trip to Geneva, where Byron had a lot of sex and Mary Shelley started Frankenstein.

This was...I think the biggest Yuletide hit I've ever written, guys. And I did it with historical RPF. Go figure. I just got an email that's been podficced, man. IDEK.

I do know I owe my betas big-time, especially [profile] edonohana, who helped me end the Poldori fic and assured me that, yes, it was funny. Guess she was right, huh.

Hello all! I received a WONDERFUL Yuletide fic. It is about Josie and you all should read it NOW.

The Ghost of the Great Hotel, Twin Peaks, AWESOME. Its structure is just brilliant, if you know the canon at all. (If you don't, I'm afraid it doesn't work as well, as this is just neck deep in the people and setting and canon events. IT'S SO GOOD, GUYS.)

I also enjoyed this World War Z fic, Zack Don't Surf, despite not knowing the canon beyond reading half a sample chapter on a Kindle at Best Buy the other day.

There might be more recs later but I wanted to rec my Yuletide fic as soon as I had time and brain to do here it is!

Batman saves a cat

Sikh Captain America.

DC Comics admits they were boneheads on the Whole Harley Quinn thing. No luck with all the other stupid stuff they've done lately. We probably can't get the APA to say "we urge DC Comics to just let Kate Kane get married already."

EDIT: The unluckiest tailor in Gotham. EXCELLENT.

"Think about it: Captain America is David Byrne, Iron Man is Lou Reed, Hulk is Iggy Pop, Thor is Dee Dee Ramone, Black Widow is Patti Smith, Hawkeye is Tom Verlaine, Nick Fury is Hilly Kristal, and Loki, of course, is Sting."

At Slate, on how terrible the CBGB movie looks, among other things.

...of course Venture Brothers did it first.

Also I aren't dead, I'm watching Spaced, and I'm trying to do everything I told everyone I'd do this weekend.

I've been meaning to call attention to this year's Weiss Reverse-a-Thon, where people prompt and authors choose the prompts they want the most.

I wrote Break Every Yoke, about Nagi's experiences during the Dramatic Precious arc.

[personal profile] daegaer wrote Bringing a Partner Home to my prompt: "AU: Mamoru isn't as strong as Schuldig; his manipulation powers are far more subtle. Still, it's enough to land him at Rosenkreuz."

I highly encourage you to check out all the fic and art, though, because there's sure to be more to your taste. It's always so much fun to participate in too!

I just realized I never put up my Sherlock Remix stories.

I wrote two: One was a regular remix and the other was for the Retold challenge, where we all wrote to one prompt (there's a stranger in 221b).

Not quite sure where this came from, but the world needed Koumyou and Jikaku hanging out. Set between the (presumed) end of Ibun and Ukoku's Burial arc. Thanks to [personal profile] lindentreeisle for looking it over.
