The time is here!

I had a lovely Yuletide, and I hope everyone else did too. <3 I received three lovely gifts, sencha's Prince Charming Gets Married (The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom - Christopher Healy) and Untherius's In Which a Hunting Trip Becomes More and Which Tells of a Quest for Biscuits (both Howl's Moving Castle). I've said more about all three of my gifts here, but let me take this chance to again say thank you to both of my authors. <333

But Yuletide is for giving as well as receiving!



Here are the fics I wrote this Yuletide!

1) Noah's Arkangel (26996 words) by abluestocking for strix_alba
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Tanakh
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Summary: “I’ll be up at the Arkangel,” Noah finishes. “When you lot have finished your grumbling, come up and get your assignments.”

After he leaves, everyone looks at each other, still caught in the moment of silence. As might have been expected, Ham’s the one to break it. “What’s crawled up his exhaust pipe?”

“I think the prospect of a life-ending flood might just have had a moderately deleterious effect upon him,” Rahela says sarcastically. “I can’t imagine why.”

Reveal comments: So this is the fic that was originally supposed to be about a third of this length, and then it decided it had other ideas. :) Strix_alba's main request in this fandom was for an AU, so I took that and ran with it. Apparently you can't do Noah's Ark AUs in space without epic proportions!

I'd never written this many scientists before - let's get real, I've never written any scientists period - so hopefully the science mostly sort of worked? (A. is probably pityingly shaking his head right now.) If it doesn't, well, I blame my anthropologist POV character, who probably just misunderstood or heard wrong. :P Which, speaking of anthropologists, in an eerie coincidence my recipient turned out to be one too. Yes. This only happens to me. So hopefully all the ethical debates about anthropology weren't horribly off. *headdesk* I did enjoy writing it, though, despite its longwindedness and science. :)

2) No Longer a Friend of Narnia (645 words) by abluestocking for Gehayi
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Wicked Girls (album) - Seanan McGuire, Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Susan Pevensie
Summary: Susan refuses to tell fairytale stories.

Reveal comments: "Wicked Girls" is just so lovely, that when I saw Gehayi's prompt I couldn't help writing something for it. I've always loved Susan and thought her condemnation was horrible, so this little story came from a very natural place.

3) Jasmine's Nemesis (1000 words) by abluestocking for tamarind (rogue)
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Nemeses (Song), Jonathan Coulton
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Summary: Jasmine is eleven, and she's looking for her nemesis. She knows the right one's out there somewhere.

Reveal comments: Another wonderful song that was just demanding a fill. Rogue's prompt was great, and I did my best with the girls. :)

4) We're Going to Say It's True (612 words) by abluestocking for proleptic_fancy
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: British Comedian RPF
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Lee Mack/David Mitchell
Characters: David Mitchell, Lee Mack
Summary: As soon as David looks at the card, Lee knows this is going to be a good one.

Reveal comments: I love Would I Lie to You?, I really do. I don't know how well I captured these two, but I did my best to celebrate them. :) A bit of fluff to fill a stocking.

5) Eighteen Impossible Things Before Breakfast (1616 words) by abluestocking for elyssblair
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Toy Story Series (Movies)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Andrew "Andy" Davis, Sid Phillips
Summary: Andy renews an acquaintance.

Reveal comments: Another stocking stuffer. I may have had entirely too much fun inventing films for Sid to have made. xD

~//~

6) Daughter (1333 words) by Blue for Meltha
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Abraham's Daughter - Arcade Fire (Song)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Summary: Abraham had two sons. And I am his daughter.

Note: Mentions of child abuse. (This is the 'graphic depictions of violence' - I err on the side of caution.)

Reveal comments: This is the grimmest of the things I wrote this year. The song is haunting, and once I got the idea that Abraham's daughter might be Ishmael's full sister, it went from there.

7) Between (229 words) by Blue for Kainosite
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Political RPF - UK 20th-21st c.
Rating: Mature
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Alastair Campbell/Peter Mandelson, Tony Blair/Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair/Peter Mandelson
Characters: Alastair Campbell, Peter Mandelson
Summary: Alastair and Peter will forever have one thing in common.

Reveal comments: Yes, so, well, I know Kainosite, and when I saw that her prompt included a request for porn involving one of Tony's ties, I realised immediately that I had to write it. :D This is a teensy (well, 'concentrated' sounds better than teensy) bit of porn with as much characterisation as I could wedge in there. :) Enjoy.

8) Vexation of Spirit (1245 words) by Blue for eruthiel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Political RPF - UK 20th-21st c.
Rating: Mature
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Alastair Campbell/Peter Mandelson
Characters: Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell
Summary: Five times Alastair annoyed Peter, and one time he made it better.

Reveal comments: So after I wrote the last Madness ficlet, eruthiel commented on it saying how much he loved top!Peter and that I should write him more often. Since I had a little bit of time before Madness closed, me writing more things was pretty predictable. :D This was a first attempt and didn't quite make it too far into pornness. There are bagpipes and posh apple juice and Alastair attempting to be Malcolm Tucker, however. :)

9) What A Man Wants (1347 words) by Blue for eruthiel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Political RPF - UK 20th-21st c.
Rating: Explicit
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Alastair Campbell/Peter Mandelson
Characters: Alastair Campbell, Peter Mandelson
Summary: There are some embarrassing things that Alastair is happy to confess to – adoring Tony Blair, loving Burnley – and some that he will own because he has to – Iraq, his receding hairline.

There are others that he will refuse to acknowledge except under extreme duress.

Reveal comments: Just barely managed to squeeze this one in before Madness closed! Since the last one for eruthiel failed at being porny, I made this one doubly so. And um, included begging and wall sex. :) Enjoy, dude. <3

And that, gentlefolk, was my Yuletide reveal!

This was my second Yuletide, and I had a wonderful time again. I loved how it was a completely different experience this time around, in new and interesting ways. I'm already looking forward to seeing how my third year will try to top it.

And now it's 2013! Happy New Year, one and all. <333
