I got 2! (two!!!) fics for Yuletide! Wow.

The first is None of Them, a Kindred the Embraced fic with Julian and Frank and werewolves prowling in the periphery. It has a very nice Frank pov, showing exactly how frustrating it must be to have to deal with vampires, when the vampires refuse to play by the classic rulebook, but hang around and claim to be doing things for your own good.

The second is Midsommar, which is the most adorable Sweden/Åland Scandinavia and the world fanfic that ever adorabled. Lazy and warm and gorgeous.

I just wish that I knew if they've been written by the same author or two different ones. Ah well, soon.

First of all, thank you so very, very much for being willing to write a story for little me :-)

Likes: crossovers, slash, character focused tales, twisting plots, happy endings
Dislikes: non-con, slave-fic, very dark tales, mpreg, always-a-girl/boy-AUS, character bashing, very kinky sex (as in very BDSM, watersports, etc), lack of actual plot.

Requests - Scandinavia and the World, Kindred the Embraced, Kitty Norville, Vorkosigan saga )

Apparently Sherlock fandom has already grown too big to be allowed to play in Yuletide :-( And apparently, the same goes for the Vorkosigan saga...


Right. Off to think of two new ideas for requests :-(  (seriously, next year, I'll nominate a bunch of Danish books and movies or something - let's see anybody try and claim Freddy og monstrene already has too much fic on AO3...)

Nu det yuletide igen, og nu det yuletide igen, og yuletide varer lige til påske.
Nej, det ikke sandt, nej, det ikke sandt, for indimellem kommer fanfics :-)

And now I'm off to give careful thought to what I want to nominate - other than Scandinavia and the World, of course

The year started with an angsty little sparrington crossover between PotC and Sandman entitled Sweet Dreams are Made of This. Then followed a PotC future!AU - also sparrington - The Very Model of a Modern Librarian (a fic which had not one, but two awesome remixes done in the remixredux). Later came another crossover, this time involving PotC and Good Omens entitled In Living Colour and involving Norrington encountering certain - colourful personalities.

Also, this year I wrote a teeny-tiny original ficlet - Apocalypse in Red and Black. Beware of the ladybug apocalypse - bwahahaha!

Finally, I participated in three fic challenges / exchanges this year. First was the already mentioned remixredux, where I offered a remix entitled Fragments of: Some Autobiographical Notes by a Counterfeit Governess (the Picaresque Remix) - a remix of a PotC fanfic focused on an OC. Second came the xover_exchange, which was great fun - I wrote a Pushing Daisies / Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog crossover entitled Resurrection Pie and received a lovely little BtVS / Dr. Horrible crossover in return. Finally, I participated in yuletide, where I wrote a story for Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere focused on Hunter entitled Headstone - the story I got was an absolutely awesome crossover between New Amsterdam and Torchwood.

First of all, thank you for being willing to write a story just for me :-)

The time has apparently finally come for the authors of Yuletide stories to be revealed, which means that I can tell anyone who cares that my contribution was a little tale called Toad Dreams, written for one KacyCallum. She asked for traditional fairytales (specifically The Little Mermaid) and that it be creepy - judging from the comments I've gotten, I think I managed that. Anyway, my recipient seems to like it, I've gotten some nice comments that I'll have to remember expressing my gratitude for and even a couple of recs. So that's good.

So, Christmas Eve has come and gone. It was nice. Good food, family, hygge - quite nice. Also nice presents - I got some dvds, a new telephone and a toaster, among other things. Also, my gifts were well-received, so all in all, it was good.

Also, look: someone wrote me a yuletide story. A Promise Made is a Promise Kept. I asked for Norse Mythology - Loki playing with the recently created humans and got this sweet little story about Loki saving a peasant boy from trolls. It kind of reminds me of an old Faroese ballad, Loka Táttur, where Loki also gets to save a peasant boy, although the plot is completely different. Still, it's nice to see a story where Loki isn't stuck playing the villain, unlike far too many tales I could mention. Even if I suspect it didn't go through a beta... nevermind.

Now I just hope my recipient likes the story I wrote. *fingers crossed*

 Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!  Oh yeah, and I caught a Christmas egg. It kind of looks like a piece of candy, doesn't it? :-)

Question: do you think I should sign up for Yuletide? I've been considering it and I suppose it could be fun (as well as a chance to expand my writing away from just PotC, since I doubt that qualifies as a minor fandom, although I haven't actually checked) - on the other hand, there will be (hopefully sooner rather than later) a situation with my eyes and glasses, but I think it will be minor...
