Reveals are more than out and I still
haven't read all I wanted to. Oh, Yuletide.
I ended up writing a whole bunch. The Main Event
I had Annakas as my assigned recipient, and we matched on Rh Plus.
The request was great, we shared some favorites...and it took me forever
to get a concept I liked. The first two didn't feel enough like canon to suit me. I ended up focusing on one thing we both had in common: A love of Masakazu and Konoe's stupid competitions. I asked myself, "Self, what's the dumbest thing you can think of for teenage boys to compete over?"
The answer was arm wrestling, and Too Wise to Woo Peacably
And then I started worrying that the fic wasn't Konoe-centric enough, so I went back to one of my old drafts and realized that I actually had a halfway decent story there. So I wrote Years Go Falling
for annakas too.
I realized that there were only two people who requested Rh Plus this year, and daegaer
didn't have an Rh Plus story, so I wrote First Taste
about Michitaka and Kiyoi.
I also wrote Sleep on the Left Side
, because no one else had written a TJ & Amal story yet, and that was a crime.we make midnight a maquette of the year
was for nyargles
, because she wanted Billy and Tommy bonding and I needed to write that so much, I can't even.Treats!
...yeah, I wrote a lot for Yuletide. Felt good, I've been pretty slow/blocked/meh.Security.
is a fake Veridian Dynamics commercial for samalander, from my beloved (and cancelled) Better Off Ted.
I miss that show. Less than a ficlet, I guess, but it was fun! I loved picking out the pictures.
As Yami was a Yuletide fandom, possibly for the first time, I wanted to write something
in it. All I managed was Craving,
And one of my favorites this year is Despite Appearances,
a very short fic I wrote from the trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Yes, I know it's ridiculous! But my recipient, meinterrupted
, saw the trailer in the same way I did, and so I wrote in hopes the movie will be as delightful it looks from that tiny glimpse.
