Hiiiiiiii, Yuletide Author!

You are amazing for writing for me, and I'm sure I'll love anything you come up with. I love individual character studies as well as ensemble pieces, I love characters being smart, being raw, being complicated, being friends. I REALLY love a good dramatic reveal. (Dramatic reveals are a one of my largest narrative kinks.) I'm okay with violence and death - look at my fandom requests - but I'd rather it not be lovingly detailed and dwelt upon. I don't think anything I've requested really lends itself to graphic sex.

For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I missed the Yuletide signup, but I picked up a pinch hit early.

Come Yuletide reveal, I was blown away, because it turns out that TWO lovely people wrote amazing stories for me.

The first is a fabulous, wonderful, touching story about Marceline and Simon after the Mushroom War; it's exactly the story I wanted after I Remember You.

Remember Me (1379 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Adventure Time
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Marceline (Adventure Time), Ice King, simon petrikov

In a ruined city after the Mushroom War, a young Marceline watches as her only friend's memories slip away.

And my treat, a song from Marceline for her mother, which sounds just like something we'd hear in the show itself.

You Said I Would Be Queen (184 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Adventure Time
Rating: General Audiences

Characters: Marceline (Adventure Time), Marceline's Mom (Adventure Time)

A song.

They are both fantabulous, and if you like Adventure Time, you need to check them out.

Pairing: Colleen Blessed/Brett Parker
Notes: For [ profile] atatteredrose in Yuletide 2011!
So, apparently I forgot to also post this! This is the story that was basically jumping up and down and waving its arms around and hollering that I wrote it, as it is A) Power Play, B) a song title from a Canadian indie band in high rotation on CBC Radio 3, and C) POWER PLAY. Which is the show of my heart. And a shows whose fannish works I have now created 2/5ths of.

Colleen's life is easier without Brett Parker. (Easier isn't everything.)

Notes: Written for [ profile] odyle for Yuletide 2011. Many thanks to [ profile] sprat for beta, despite not having any idea what I was writing about.

Marceline may be a thousand years old, but Princess Bubblegum has been eighteen for a very long time.

I am super behind on things! Pretend that this post is from before the big Yuletide reveal! And that there is a reason to use this many exclamation points!

I got two awesome stories this year!

Something in the Guns [The Walking Dead], which is a lovely character study of Andrea and Dale post 2x05;

Ms. Frizzle and the Van School for Gifted Boys [The Magic School Bus, Inception, Calvin and Hobbes, Torchwood/Doctor Who, BSG, Fringe], in which there is a multi-fandom field trip to the Large Hadron Collider. I don't think I need to tell you how happy that makes me!

I didn't bother doing the 'guess what I wrote!' thing this year, because one of the stories I wrote was in a fandom I have never mentioned (because that is how I roll, and the first sign of a fandom from me is often 'Hey, look, here's a vid in a thing that I enjoy!'), and other was pretty much jumping up and down and hollering about how I wrote it.

In other year-end thingies I am getting to after the year ends:

Vidding Meme!

February: L.E.S. Artistes [Terminator Movies, Sarah Connor, Festivids pinch hit]
August: Land's End [Doctor Who, River Song]
Gotta Boyfriend? [Scott Pilgrim vs the World]
We Rule the World [My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic]

Babbling and bobbling. )

There was another meme going around a while back where you could ask writers or vidders about any of their choices! I don't remember exactly how it went, but something about if you had choices at song/clip/word choice or characterization or intent, you could ask! In the off chance, you are interested, ask away! If you ask about anything I wrote in high school, however, my answer will likely be along the lines of "Well, at that point, I also thought it was a good idea to name myself after a snow cone/popsicle/etc."

I am ridiculously behind on end-of-year things! So behind that the year went right ahead and ended. (Personally, I blame the concussion.)

But, in an attempt to get some sort of handle on things, let's belated talk about Yuletide! I had the unparalleled fortune to receive The Five People You Meet in Der Waffle Haus (Dead Like Me) by [ profile] kurushi, which is the Roxy fic to end all Roxy fics. I seriously don't have enough superlatives to describe its beauty and perfection, or how gorgeously every single character is drawn. It is truly glorious, and I fail for not rec'ing it soon.

I wrote two stories for Yuletide this year, the first of which is found below.

A Case of Curious Thursdays

For [ profile] baseballchica03

Also at Archive of Our Own.

Olive Snook was having a horrible, terrible, no good very bad day.

This is a much belated Yuletide post! I thought I made one earlier, but apparently that was something that I imagined.

I received two most fabulous gift-fics: Mumbly, in which Olive Snook, at her very best, finds out. The narrative voice could have been ripped from an episode that should have been. I also received Steady as She Goes, which is 1) Power Play -- the only piece of Power Play fic to ever exist, and it is 2) an absolutely perfect Colleen piece.

As for myself, I wrote P.C. Hodgell's Chronicles of the Kencyrath for [ profile] teaotter.

Read it at the archive, here, after the cut.

Thanks to: [ profile] sprat, for awesome beta and talking me down from my stabby-place.

I had the chance to write two pieces this year, both in fandoms I'd never gotten a crack at before. Those two posts are to follow.

I'm afraid I failed to compile a recs list before author names went live, but I really want to take a chance to mention the absolutely amazing stories I received.

This year, my request was in the 'Three remaining unfilled requests' list up until the last minute. I think this means I was somewhat troublesome for the fantastic organizers, for which I am sorry. On a selfish level, however, I have no problem with this whatsoever: it means I got four absolutely amazing stories. Three were Chronicles of the Kencyrath: That Which Preserves, a lush piece with gorgeous undertones, in which Kindrie contemplates the mercy of murder; the warm A Quiet Place, in which Kindrie finally gets a much-deserved moment of peace (<33); and Sins of the Fathers, a short, sharp, and chilling bit of reflection. I also received a Mambo Italiano piece, You Mixed Up Siciliano, which is a fabulous post-movie piece with a Nino who's finally come to terms with himself reaching out to the one friend who'd understand.

Hurrah for Yuletide!

A very happy (and similarly, very belated birthday) to two of my most favourite people on the internet -- [ profile] thefourthvine and [ profile] tellitslant!

Things which are awesome: for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I obtained funding for a laptop, and am now the proud owner of a Toshiba M750 tablet! I can write on the screen! I have never owned a PC before, though, so am curious as to what applications my more experienced friends think are necessary. Now, this is going to be a school machine -- I'm planning on keeping all my media on my desktop computer, so I don't need recommendations for vidding software or anything of the like. Neat or useful program recommendations would be awesome, as well as resources. If anyone uses a good reference/paper database program, I would love to hear it. Unfortunately, Papers (which is awesome), only has a Mac version.

And, somewhat belatedly:

Dear Yuletide Author: while I am clearly made of fail for not getting this up sooner... )
cherry: (dexter)
Dearest Yuletide Author;

You are most decidedly made of awesome. )

In other news, my paid LJ time is about to expire, so I am all a-twitter to find out which five LJ icons I shall be left with. Maybe LJ will look deep into my soul to decide.
