firefly124: willow & tara dancing from omwf (under your spell by willow_kat)
One person over at [community profile] fandom_stocking came up with the brilliant idea of leaving what amounted to a fic gift card for a drabble from a mutual fandom. This was the result:

Title: Worry
Author: [personal profile] sharpest_asp/Merfilly
Fandom: BtVS
Rating: G
Pairing: Willow/Tara
Summary: A quiet moment between lovers.
Why you should read it: Just a lovely sweet moment between two characters who did not get enough of those in canon.
firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
Between [insanejournal.com profile] adventdrabbles and [community profile] fandom_stocking, I've been getting a lot of writing therapy for the last month and a half or so. Most of it has been SPN. Just as my Muse apparently got kidnapped out of Hogwarts and Sunnydale by the TARDIS and Hub, now She's been hijacked by a couple of flannel-clad nightmares in an Impala. *eyeroll*

So, there are Destiel Advent Drabbles that sort of ended up a more-or-less continuous series on both IJ and AO3. Technically more ficlets than drabbles with some full-on one-shots. Not really specific to any show season, despite references to the bunker. Definitely not S9-compliant. Most of the individual stories are rated G or T, but as a couple go to M and E, the whole series gets the E rating. Largely fluffy with occasional feels.

For stocking stuffers, I managed the following:

Title: Lovers' Quarrel
Recipient: [personal profile] trobadora
Fandom: SPN
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: G
Summary: Castiel should have realized nothing about this would be simple.

Title: Best Man for the Job
Recipient: [personal profile] ani_bester
Fandom: SPN
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: G
Summary: Even mostly-grown prophets and hunters-in-training need an adult or two in their lives.

Title: Unexpected
Recipeint: [personal profile] chamilet
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: G
Warning: MPREG
Summary: Ianto had really thought that was just another of Jack’s stories.

Title: Make It Better
Recipient: [personal profile] sahiya
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Nine/Rose/Jack
Rating: G
Summary: Jack’s not overly fond of most primitive first aid approaches, but there’s one that could grow on him.

Title: Rest
Recipient: [personal profile] xylodemon
Fandom: SPN
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: T
Summary: Nothing about this case had gone according to plan, but at least this part Dean could get on board with.

Title: Aftermath
Recipient: [personal profile] phynix
Fandom: SPN
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: M
Summary: The brothers rescue Castiel from Crowley’s lair, but he’s been hurt badly and needs some help before he can heal.

Hoping to get some more done before the next semester starts, though there is still plenty of stuff I'm meant to be doing for school.

I should already be asleep, but I came home to find that [community profile] fandom_stocking had opened up the stockings tonight, and I just had to check out all the lovely gifts I received.

I love them all, and now I must share the squee so you can enjoy them as well. Thanks again to all who dropped in various gifts and greetings, and especially to [personal profile] medie and the various helper elves who made it all happen.

Title: Nine to Five (What a Way to Make a Living)
Author: [personal profile] jenna_thorn
Fandom: Avengers (2012)
Characters: Barton, Romanov, OCs
Rating: T
Summary: Faking busy only went so far when the person walked right up and waited. Rita ctrl-S’d and looked up, pasting what she hoped passed for a professional smile of greeting on her face. Oh god, the Black Widow was standing in front of her. “Agent Hernandez.” It wasn’t a question.

Shit. “Yes, ma’am,” Rita said as she tried to put an elbow over the pink post-it by her keyboard with the most used keycodes scrawled over it. At least she didn’t write down her passwords. Anymore.

“My understanding is that you dance.”

Only if six months of classes at the Y and a year at Hafla for Homebodies counted, Rita thought.
Why you should read it: If the combination of Romanov and bellydance isn't enough, Barton's a sweetie, and the randomly recruited "baby agent" has a really cool epiphany.

==================

Title: Sweetness
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thinlizzy2
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Pairing: May/Simmons
Rating: Teen
Why you should read it: The author has some cool insights into Melinda May, how she takes in and processes every detail around her, and how that applies when she is involved with Jemma Simmons. As the title implies, very sweet.

===================

Title: Bones/Booth wallpaper
Artist: [personal profile] tarlanx
Fandom: Bones
Pairing: Bones/Booth
Rating: G
Why you should check it out: It's a very sweet image of them dancing with what I can only call the perfect backdrop.

=====================

Title: To Hold Hands and Run Again
Author: [personal profile] sahiya
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Eleven/River
Rating: G
Summary: The Doctor and River, after New York.
Why you should read it: One of the things that felt "unresolved" after "The Angels Take Manhattan" was the Doctor and River actually dealing with what had just happened. This fic tackles that, as well as highlighting River's unique perspective on it.

=====================

Title: Get Loved, Make More, Try to Stay Alive
Author: [profile] dira_sudis
Reccer: [personal profile] fuzzyboo
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Why you should read it: This is an absolute classic that I haven't revisited in far too long, so it was a treat to be reminded of it. As [personal profile] fuzzyboo put it, it is 19% mpreg by volume, with a lovely plot and some unexpected twists.

=====================

Title: Winterfair Interlude
Author: [personal profile] philomytha
Fandom: Vorkosigan saga
Characters: Alys Vorpatril, Simon Illyan
Rating: T
Summary: The story of the time Alys took a weapon from Simon's holster.
Why you should read it: Lady Alys is awesome. Lady Alys in combination with Simon Illyan is extra awesome. Actually, this fic is part of a series exploring the two characters, and one of the earlier fics in the series, Steel, was a stocking gift to me last year that was a joy to revisit as well.

======================

Title: Bones/Booth icons
Artist: [personal profile] chamilet
Fandom: Bones
Pairing: Bones/Booth
Why you should check them out: Just some lovely icons showcasing this adorable, quirky couple.

======================

There were also various lovely graphics and holiday greetings, and one very clever "gift card" for future fic. It really made my night to receive these. Perfect timing, as I'm going to be offline for the bulk of the weekend, so I'm glad I had the chance to read/view/enjoy them all now.

Eventually, I'll post a roundup of the fics I wrote, but for now, I'm going to get some sleep. Long day ahead tomorrow!

The semester is over(ish)*, [insanejournal.com profile] adventdrabbles is up and running, and I see the [community profile] fandom_stocking stockings are being hung with care. Time to do some writing that is fun!

Actually, I've already been doing a bit over at [insanejournal.com profile] adventdrabbles. Digression )

Anyway, if you are doing the [community profile] fandom_stocking thing, please drop me a comment with the URL of your stocking. While the nature of this meme is no obligations or guarantees, I do want to try to write something for at least the folks I know who are participating. That was actually supposed to be the main point of this post, as evidenced by the title, but then I got sidetracked. I think this semester has broken my brain. So yes, please, drop me your stocking link!


*Still have research-y stuff to do even as I await approval from the Human Subjects Committee, plus practicum-related journaling. But actual going-to-class-and-creating-presentations? That is done.

**Am wondering again what the converse of Brit-picking is called (Yank-picking just doesn't have the same ring) and how to offer that service in SPN fandom. I do now more than ever totally get how annoying Brits find random Americanisms in HP/DW/TW fic, because while there may at some point be a pair or more of boots in the Impala, it does not have one of its own as a permanent fixture, and the only time Dean may have thrown a crisp packet anywhere is when they went to dig up Crowley's bones in Scotland. :-D
firefly124: 9th doctor - fantastic (fantastic9 by dawn_e_h)
Today has been a rough one fibro-wise, so it was the perfect day to receive stocking stuffers that made me smile, and I've received quite the range of very cool gifts, including various cute graphics and well-wishes as well as the following fics:

AtS tinyficlet by [personal profile] yhlee (Angel: the Series, Fred/Gunn, G)

A Vorkosigan ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] sheffsfic (Vorkosigan, Miles/Ekaterin, G)

Lair by [personal profile] merryghoul (Leverage, Parker/Sophie, G)

Something Different by [personal profile] tarlanx (Torchwood, Jack/Ianto, M)

I Bring Thee Glad Tidings by [personal profile] yamx (Doctor Who, Nine/Jack/(Rose), G)

Blindsided by [personal profile] sahiya (Doctor Who, Eleven/River/Jack, E/NC17)

and

Christmas in July by [livejournal.com profile] tiny_white_hats (Angel: the Series, Fred/Gunn, PG)

I am hugely grateful for all of these and hope some of you will go and enjoy them as well!

I didn't write as much as I'd hoped, didn't even manage to stray out of Doctor Who (unless you count the crossover), but I had fun writing what I did. There are two or three that I got started that ran away from me, which I hope to finish and post before school resumes at the end of the month. The ones I did complete are

Crazy for [personal profile] joking (Crossover, Eleven and Sherlock, G)

The Wedding Planner for [personal profile] sahiya (Doctor Who, Vastra/Jenny (in absentia) and Eleven/River, G)

War Games for [personal profile] yamx (Doctor Who, Nine/Rose/Jack, M)

and

Peace and Quiet for [personal profile] fuzzyboo (Doctor Who, Nine, Rose, and Jack, G)

It's been another fun year, for sure. I've said it there already, but huge kudos to the mods for pulling this off. There were something like 360 stockings to manage this year, which I can't even fathom the logistics of.

Fandom Stocking is running again this year, this time on Dreamwidth. The signup post is here.

*rubs hands together in glee*

The [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stockings have gone live, and I received lots of lovely stocking-stuffers. There are cheery holiday wish macros, an SS/HG icon by [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen, and four lovely fics:

A Glimpse of the Future by [livejournal.com profile] wendymr (DW, 9/Rose/Jack, rated T)

Steel by [livejournal.com profile] philomytha (Vorkosigan, Simon Illyan and Alys Vorpatril, rated G)

Patient, Kind, and Varied by [livejournal.com profile] sahiya (DW, Eleven/River/Rose/Jack and various combinations thereof, rated M)

Untitled TW/SJA crossover by [livejournal.com profile] fififolle (TW/SJA, Owen and Clyde, rated G)

I've already said it there, but thanks to all the lovely gifters, and also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] medie and all the volunteers that make the fun that is [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking happen! Last night was hell on wheels at work, so coming home to all these awesome gifts was just so perfect. Please go check out the cool icon and/or the great fics and leave them some love too.

I also had fun writing a few stocking-stuffers, though not as many as I'd set out to do. There's at least one that may yet happen if I can dig myself out of the clueless-Yank hole I dug myself into. *crosses fingers*

Try, Try Again for [livejournal.com profile] ariestess (Leverage, Sophie/Parker, rated G)

Switch for [livejournal.com profile] wendymr (DW, 9/Rose/Jack, rated G)

Foreign Influence for [livejournal.com profile] philomytha (Vorkosigan, Gregor/Laisa, rated G)

Ulterior Motive for [livejournal.com profile] yamx (DW, pre-9/Rose/Jack, rated G)

Living Well for [livejournal.com profile] joking (DW, Jenny/Vastra, G)

A Night to Forget for [livejournal.com profile] sahiya (DW, Eleventy and Jack and Rose, rated G)

Yes, I never got out of G territory, even with Jack. Go figure. LOL

W00t!

[livejournal.com profile] who_reversebang has been posting since Monday, and there's some great stuff over there. I highly recommend checking it out.

Next bit of homework, then, is to rewatch some Torchwood S2 to make sure I'm clear on timelines, then that one can get rolling a bit more. And I may just try to write a stocking stuffer or two for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking in between for a bit of a breather.

Which reminds me, if you have a stocking hanging over at [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking, please link me? I make no promises about how many stocking stuffers I'll manage to write, but I would like to try to do a few more this year.

AO3 stuff

If anyone else who participated in the Whipped Cream Day mini-ficathon uses An Archive of Our Own, there is now a collection for those fics, which you can either post to or, if your fic is already up on AO3, I think you can edit to associate with the collection if you want.

Also, since [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking had an AO3 collection, I've uploaded the various things I wrote there.



Whew! That's more than I realized. And at some point, I need to upload the rest, just to have everything in one place. At some point.

Now to tend to various fandom responsibilities I've let slide. Meep!
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
I got lots of lovely gifts here. Fics, an icon, recs, graphics. A bit of everything, really. There's Snupin, Nine/Rose/Jack, Tosh and Ianto, Eleven/River/Jack, Scoobies and Giles in Santa hats, and a slew of Cordelia/Aral recs. Seriously, go check it out!

I know I've already said it in comments there, but bit thanks to everyone who wrote, made graphics/icons, or just left holiday wishes for me. And very huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] medie for running [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. There were 286 stockings, Gods only know how many fandoms represented, and somehow, everybody got at least something. "Somehow" involved tons of work, first posting the stockings and then monitoring to be sure they were filled.

Ironically, I ended up writing both more and less than I'd planned for others' stockings. More in the sense of volume. Less in the sense that I had made a list of friends' stockings with the intent to write specific things for them, and that pretty much didn't happen. Mostly, with a couple of exceptions, I wrote for people I don't know at all or don't know well. I'm not sure what that's about. It bothers me, though, especially as quite a few of the people I'd intended to but didn't succeed in writing for did write lovely things for me. Then again, part of the point to the [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking deal is that it isn't an exchange and there aren't supposed to be expectations. I just put expectations on myself anyway. *eyeroll*

At some point, I'll post the things I wrote to AO3 and wherever else makes sense. It was definitely an interesting experience that I look forward to repeating, as it stretched me to write some pairings I'd never done, Martha/Jack and Jaenelle/Karla circa "Prince of Ebon Rih" for two that come to mind.
