everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
In the end, I wrote four stories for Yuletide, including two pinch hits and one Treat.

Anticlockwise
All the Queen's Men (Johnno/Tony/Franz): Eton boys, top secret missions, and recreating Tony's Germany of the 30's.

Chuck vs. Bowling, Drugs, and the Unexpected Romance
Chuck (Chuck/Casey): The life of the world's only functional Intersect holds a number of problems and unexpected adventures. Chuck can deal with everything but the bowling.

On the Merits of Patience
Temeraire: On the journey to the New South Wales Colony, Temeraire must remind himself of the merits of patience.

Fleeting
Clover (Ran/Gingetsu): It's a long night, and Ran welcomes it.

Some musings about the fic, fandoms, and my Yuletide experience this year )

Three of my four Yuletide betas were found by Hippos in the Yuletide chat this year, and I think I betaed four fic through the same method (and volunteered for more). My biggest changes this year were hanging out in chat (highly recommended), pinch hitting, and making an attempt at the Yuletide Treats. Overall, it was an excellent experience, and if next year I am free around Yuletide season, I will try to do it all over again.

For those of you who participated, how did your Yuletide experiences go?

Coughed myself into an asthma attack last night and still coughing today. I am too tired to deal with anything today. *eyes number to the doctor*

At least it's not swine flu. (Just the worst and slowest immune system ever.)

Some recs!

The Rules by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Prompt: Discworld, any character, A gay wizard attempts to determine whether Unseen University's celibacy policy applies to him...and if so, why?
Summary: At age thirteen, Hubert Greenish knew for certain that he was destined to be a wizard.

A Series of Conversations on an Awkward Subject by [livejournal.com profile] lorannah
Prompt: #1325 - Temeraire, Emily Roland, Everyone assumes that Emily will inherit captainship of Excidium after her mother. But will a Longwing accept a captain who's realizing she's female in body, but not in mind or spirit?
Summary: Roland has no idea if Excidium will accept him as Captain, he doesn't have the answers but he's hoping he can find someone who does.

Love Like a Djelibeybian by [livejournal.com profile] gehayi
Prompt: Ptraci doesn't mind a political marriage for the sake of Djelibeybi's succession, but she doesn't understand why everyone seems to balk at the idea of the queen taking handmaidens to bed; after all, no one minded the *king* doing it, and she's doing the same job.
Summary: Sometimes you don't know how much you want someone until someone says you can't have her.

The Epiphany Job by [personal profile] shrift
Prompt: Leverage, Alec/Eliot, Alec might be a criminal; but at heart, he still is the good little boy who wants to make his Nana proud - and falling in love with a man is not part of that.
Summary: When he rolled out of bed that afternoon, heated up some Philly Steak & Cheese Hot Pockets for breakfast, and then went to the office, Alec Hardison was not expecting to experience a paradigm shift.
