Yuletide letter placeholder, ahoy!

I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key than Yuletide, I guess because it's smaller? This wasn't a bad thing, however.

I received this lovely bit of Torchwood crackfic, which was perfect and pushed all of my buttons, and was far better than I deserved, considering the totally vague prompt I provided.

Coffee Beans and Cat Ears (4261 words) by mm8
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Torchwood
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ianto Jones & Toshiko Sato
Characters: Toshiko Sato, Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Suzie Costello, Owen Harper
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Alternate Universe - Cats

Toshiko didn't expect to walk into that pet shop.

Oh, Ianto.

I wrote two pieces. The first was some Fast & Furious fic, which should surprise no one.

Wash the poison from off my skin, show me how to be whole again (1752 words) by joyce
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Fast and the Furious Series
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Brian O'Conner/Mia Toretto
Characters: Dominic Toretto, Brian O'Conner, Letty Ortiz, Mia Toretto, Luke Hobbs
Additional Tags: Family

The family is home, but life is complicated.

I have this thing, where I like to think about what happens after happily ever after (because life just isn't that easy, and it's fun to think about; I did this at Yuletide too. And while we know more complications are coming from the after credits scene on Fast 6, the meantime was a lot of fun to think about too.

And finally, there was some Enterprise fic.

Close Encounters of the Family Kind (1393 words) by joyce
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Jonathan Archer/Malcolm Reed
Characters: Jonathan Archer, Malcolm Reed, Madeline Reed, Porthos (Star Trek)

Malcolm is about to introduce the two most important people in his life, and Jonathan is not so sure about it.

I got to include Porthos, so that was a win, and just overall, this was a lot of fun to write.

This morning, feeding time at the zoo:

Yes, Lattimer the dog and Copper the cat are the same size. :)

Hi, dear author!

My first experience in general with writing fanfic and with the fanfic community was this past Yuletide, so, frankly, it feels a little weird to be able to request The West Wing, Torchwood, and Hawaii Five-0.

Right now, I'm lazy and tired (it's the end of the semester, and I'm a college professor), so I'll echo what I said at Yuletide; I don't do:

- rape or non-con. Seriously, please, just don't go there.
- child or animal harm
- embarrassment or humiliation squick
- mostly, explicit sex. Sometimes I'm after that, but when I am, there's plenty out there to be found. (Though, if what's speaking to you is porn, well, then porn you shall write.)

I do love:

- gen. Good gen is underrated.
- strong friendships
- good dialog, lots of humor - I love the "walk and talk" style dialog of the West Wing.
- world building or works that could be canon
- AUs; one of my favorite stories right now is Motion Practice, an Avengers AU:
- crackfic. This fic, where Danny on Hawaii 5-0 is turned into a cat? Hilarious.

There's also the seal story. It's epic.

Apparently, turning people into animals on H50 is a thing. :)

- any sort of relationship/gender configurations. Gender bending of canonical characters is fine, as long as it's done respectfully. Have you read the story about a FTM pregnant Sherlock? It's amazing, and sweet, and Mary steals the show.
- crossovers. mm, tasty crossovers.

But, in the end, save my list of "don't do, please", I'll happily read whatever you write! :)

As far as specific fandoms:

- TWW: I don't ship anyone in specific on TWW, but I do love the characters and how much they care for each other, and as I said, dialogue is king on TWW. I've seen all seven seasons. Multiple times.
- Torchwood: Like a lot of other folks, I haven't see Miracle Day, but I've seen through Children of the Earth, and it's fair game.
- Hawaii Five-0: I ship Danny and Steve, like everyone else on the planet, but really, whatever you want to do here works for me. The themes of loyalty and found family just get to me, even if the series focus has been drifting a bit. I'm current with the current season.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing what you write! :)

It's been a lovely, glorious Christmas, with a lot of good food (oh man) and good company, and good presents and lots of love.

Two of the best presents today, though, involve two of the best stories that a first time Yuletider could have hoped for:

Mrs. Pollifax and the Christmas Party. Mrs. Pollifax being her lovely self, and a bonus appearance by Jack Harkness, who flirts with everyone. (In other words, omg, Torchwood/Mrs. P crossover, someone else brought the crack, win.)

So it Shall be Told, Generation Unto Generation. This is a delicious Newsflesh/Incryptid crossover. There's mice, Buffy, Maggie, the bulldogs, Shaun, George, and lots of HAIL. There's an author who obviously loves the canon. There is a lot of win.

So I got two cracky delicious stories crossing-over some of my favorite fandoms. I love all the Yuletides forever.

weather, weather2
It is the hallowed day every year, the day we turn on the propane heat. It is grooddy out there.

I am hoping that we are between the predicted winter weather and the predicted hurricane onslaught, despite joking about wanting a snow day this week, and I hope that everyone who is in the path of Sandy (there's still a few of y'all reading, right?) rides it out okay.

Dear Yuletide author,

Hi! :)

I feel as though I haven't been that helpful in my optional comments... I found myself saying a lot of "no, really, I'm happy with anything here!" And honestly, it's true. so maybe it's easier to tell you what I don't like (and a few things I do), and let you figure it out from there.

So, what I asked for:

Bandits (2001)Collapse )
Mrs. Pollifax - Dorothy GilmanCollapse )
Lady Julia Grey series - Deanna RaybournCollapse )
InCryptid - Seanan McGuireCollapse )

And a bit about me:Collapse )

But, in the end, save my list of "don't do, please", I'll happily read whatever you write! :)

And now, for the catchings up.

The last weekend in September, Marian Call and The Ladies of Ragnarok were playing near DC. Off we went.

The concert was awesome (Marian puts on a great show, and the Doubleclicks, whom I'd never seen before, were sweet and hilarious and fantastic), our hotel was nice (thank you, Hotwire), and the Museum of the Marine Corps, which we stopped by on the way home, was way, way more interesting than expected. (And huger, too).
