Hello, lovely Yuletide author-to-be! I am beyond excited that we have been matched. You are already most awesome for signing up to Yuletide and for offering at least one of my fandoms. Everything above that is gravy. I will adore you and whatever you write, don’t worry. <333

As you will have seen, I already wrote a bit about each of my requests on the signup form. I’ll include those bits in the letter again for easy reference, but this will mostly be a letter about my fandoms and my characters and why/how much I love them. :D Yuletide inspires a lot of squee in me.

Before I get to the fandoms, here are some general notes: I love all kinds of fic – gen, slash, het, femslash, three(+)somes. Whichever way your muse takes you is fine (although I'd love it if the story had some plot as well as porn, if you go in that direction). <3

Things I love: established relationships, first times, unreliable narrators, fics that don’t just pass but thoroughly pass the Bechdel test, awkwardness, characters in love who have difficulty making the first move (particularly if the one they pine for is already in love with them and having similar troubles), teasing, snark, kissing, thorough kissing, characters with plans, characters with plans that go wrong, worldbuilding, magic, working through problems, fingering, pegging, domesticity, happy endings.

Things I’d rather not see: character-bashing, scat, torture, bestiality, under-age sex, incest, non-con.

Last note: I adore each and every one of these four fandoms. I had to agonize buckets before deciding which fandoms to choose, so these are the last four standing and dearly beloved. If it seems like I squee more over one or two of them than others, this is unintentional. Pick whichever one you want and I will love you forever no matter which one it is. <333


Fandoms and requests )


final thoughts

As I said at the beginning, dear Yuletide author, I love each and every one of these fandoms to death. You cannot make me sad by choosing "the wrong one". There is no wrong one. <333

Oh, I should probably apologize at this point for writing you a freaking novel. xD Sorry about that. I am like that. I am never able to be concise. :D

If you have any questions about me/my likes/etc, ask [livejournal.com profile] kainosite. She'll probably know the answer. ;)

Oh, if you're the type of person to read samples of your recipient's fic (like I am), here are three of my Yuletide fics from last year (the first two are short):
A Novel Solution (Sense and Sensibility)
Springtime in Ihistan (Damar Series)
Wicked Wiles (Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms)

Thank you again so much in advance for writing for me. I will be thrilled to bits by your story, I know it. Thank you for making my Christmas a special one, and happy Yuletide! <3333333

I've done a small friends cut, mostly of dead journals or those where there's been no contact between us for some time.

If you've been cut, this won't affect your ability to read my fic (which is always public).

If you still want to be added back to read my real-life updates, let me know and I'll consider it.

Have been writing - which is lovely - mostly due to a wicked case of insomnia last night - which was not. Still, it's nice to have the words flowing again, if still a bit haltingly (just minifills so far).

University Challenge final is tomorrow night. My beloved UCL went out in the semifinals and I lost my favourite player, UCL (Jamie) Karran, he of the massive hair and hilarious answers. :( Oh, Karran, I shall miss you.

The final is going to be Manchester, my second favourites, and one of the Cambridge colleges. Manchester's captain is (Tristan) Burke, who's hilarious in a completely different way from Karran. A lot of people hate him, but I think he's awesome, in an arrogant annoying Christopher-Bryant kind of way. xD And come on, how can you not love someone who recited "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" to Paxman? ("First-round flirtation", declared one of Burke's teammates.)

Of course I am now shipping Burke and Karran. xD This isn't out of nowhere - they did play a match against each other back in an earlier round (Karran & co won), and they seem to be friends (or at least they talk to each other on Twitter, and Karran wants Manchester to beat Cambridge). And Karran is canon gay - I don't know about Burke.

Still, this is completely a fandom of one. xDDD

Anyway, I need to run to the shop before it closes, so I'll stop here.

Or rather, I don't NEED to, but I want Pepsi Max and chocolate. xD

Love you all.

EDIT: Ahahaha, I have found a video of UCL Karran! Not from University Challenge, though, from another of my favourite quiz shows, Pointless (which he was apparently on last year).

I love you, Jamie Karran.

My Christmas and Boxing Day have been thoroughly lovely. What with the Tube strike and the chaos in Central London today, I elected to stay home and loll decadently around in my pyjamas. Last night I watched the Doctor Who and Downton Abbey Christmas specials, of course, and today I read, played the piano, ate some ice cream, texted with my sister, wrote two more Yuletide treats, and dipped my toes further into the lovely epicness that is this year's Yuletide collection.

So all in all I have had a fabulous extended Christmas weekend!


My newest Yuletide recs (again, READ MY GIFTS, which are linked in one of yesterday's posts, or under my username on AO3):

Please, please, please... (1721 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: John Lewis Christmas Adverts
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Summary: Lewis knows exactly what he wants for Christmas.

Read this if you've seen the advert and want to spend the next five minutes grinning up a storm. If you haven't seen the advert, go watch it on Youtube and then come back and read this. A lovely little ficlet in every way. <333

This is hilarious and awesome and smutty. If you are a fan of any of these comedians, definitely check this out. (Even if you aren't, and don't know any of them from Adam - although how could you not know Fry and Laurie?! - you won't regret giving this a try.)

Hee. This one rings very true. It's doubly funny if you've read Tough Guide to Fantasyland, but it would still be wonderfully hilarious even if you hadn't.

Go and Catch a Falling Star (7085 words) by Anonymous

Summary: "No," Harriet Vane said, having given it some thought. "I don't suppose I do believe in spontaneous human combustion."

This one is AMAZING. It's Lord Peter Wimsey crossed with Doctor Who, how could it not be?! And it fully translates its epic premise into a wonderful, funny, interesting, plotty fic. Definitely well worth a read!


Finally, I wish we could have kept Yuletide Madness open longer! I was really enjoying celebrating my release from writer's block by turning out treats in new fandoms. Ah well, I suppose there's NYR. I do want to write two more fics, because that will bring me up to an even 100! I want to see those triple figures. :)

Final stats for my Yuletide output were 10 fics, 4 in the main collection and 6 in Madness. Both of my "main" fics (my assigned fic and my plotbunny-that-ate-my-brain fic) were so completely different than anything I'd written before...it's been such an amazing experience. I've enjoyed myself so completely.

And if you didn't already gather this from my previous posts, OMG MY GIFTS. Has any person ever been so blessed as I? Not one masterpiece that pulled my very dreams from my brain, but TWO.

READ THEM NOW. And leave comments that adequately express their awesomeness, because I have already ran around squeeing all over the comments sections, and I'm afraid if I do it again I may come off as slightly deranged. :)

Oh, why don't I provide the links again, just so it's easier for you to enjoy them? (I know I already linked them yesterday, shhh.)

Oh goodness, there are no words for how amazing my two Yuletide stories are. You have no idea how widely I am grinning right now. I can't get the smile off my face, and I don't want to.

The two fics that were written for me are just so amazing, and so brilliant, and so perfect. I had told myself sternly not to raise my hopes too high, but I needn't have bothered, because these fics soar so much higher than I ever could have imagined!

That sounds over-dramatic, I know. But consider this - two of the fandoms I requested are NOTORIOUSLY difficult to write, and of course some of the characters I wanted were the trickiest ones. I know I quail at the very thought of trying to capture Lord Peter and Malcolm Tucker's voices! They are so instantly recognisable, and so iconic, and so bloody difficult to get right. But my two stories took those challenges, and they succeeded so beautifully and wonderfully.

AGH I TOLD YOU THERE WERE NO WORDS. At least no coherent ones. I think I may not be coherent until Boxing Day.

BUT READ MY STORIES. I guarantee you that you will NOT be disappointed.

(Note: Authors, these are NOT the only comments you will get from me, do NOT worry. I am known for leaving rather ridiculously long comments, so you must give me time to compose myself and write you proper odes to your genius. But this will happen soon, I promise! In the meantime, I wanted to immediately rec these to all and sundry, because they are THAT WONDERFUL.)


Role Model (Lord Peter Wimsey - Dorothy Sayers) - "Viscount Saint-George never meant to make a role model out of his uncle, but somehow Peter wormed himself into Saint-George's conscience."

My notes: I've always loved Saint-George. Gaudy Night may just be my favourite book of all time, and Saint-George is so wonderful in that. This is the Saint-George story I have always wanted - somehow my author wrote it with absolute perfection.

And my author captures their voices so well! Saint-George's narrative voice, Lord Peter, Harriet - I swear I could believe it was Sayers. I don't know how my author did it, I just don't - I bow in admiration.

And oh, it's beautiful, and it's funny, and it's deep, and I've read it three times already and loved it more each time, even though I wasn't sure that'd be possible. This is my head-canon now, in an immediate and unshakeable way. Do read this. You won't regret it, I swear.


The Rose And Crown (crossover between The Thick of It and UK Political RPF) - "Every year on December 9th, Malcolm Tucker goes for a drink with his alternate universe counterparts."

My notes: In my request, I mentioned that it might be interesting to see Malcolm Tucker interact with Alastair Campbell and Peter Mandelson. My author ran with that and gave me over seven thousand words of TTOI/Lolitics RPF. Over seven thousand words of Malcolm Tucker POV, all perfectly pitched and perfectly Malcolm, to the point where I was laughing with joy the entire first time I read it, because I could hear his voice in my head and it was just perfect, so so perfect.

And beyond the joy that is a well-written Malcolm - and I seriously cannot even begin to comprehend the amount of work this tour de force must have taken - this fic is perhaps the best crossover I've ever read. It combines a deep and thoughtful understanding of both fandoms with an unerring accuracy of characterisation and tone, and delivers a beautiful analysis of political life in both fandoms, as seen through the gaze of the characters involved.

I couldn't even have begun to imagine this much awesomeness from that one little seed of an idea in my request. It's simply beyond words. If you love either TTOI or UK politics, you have to read it, no excuses. I've read it three times and I want to read it again now.


This was my first Christmas away from home - on an entirely different continent, no less - and oh, Yuletide authors, you have made it such a lovely one. I was feeling lonely this morning, but you have cheered me up and brightened my Christmas to such an extent that I can't even explain. Thank you so, so, so much for all your hard work and for your wonderful fic and for writing for me. I am honoured and blown away and completely incoherent at this point. You have my everlasting love and gratitude. <3

So my writer's block finally broke four days ago, and oh, when it broke it really broke! I've been having so much writing my main Yuletide fic and then oodles of Yuletide treats. I'm up to - *counts* - my main Yuletide fic and six Yuletide treats (so far). And still a couple of hours until reveal!

I also have two gifts of my own waiting for me at reveal, which are taunting me in all their anonymous mystery. Come to me, gorgeous fics! *covets*

Back to writing. ;)

Oh, I should mention before I go that I have had a thoroughly lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, and that I wish you all the very Merriest of Christmases, if you celebrate! (If you don't celebrate, have some hugs and cheer for no other reason than that you're you. <3)

Hello all!

Livejournal's latest cock-up has meant that I'm going to make my Dreamwidth account more than a place-holder. I'll still keep my Livejournal account, and I have cross-posting set up, but depending on how things go, Dreamwidth may become my new hub.

I'm NOT going to post all of my old fic in back-dated entries, as the amount of work that would take seems truly staggering (ETA: Thanks to [personal profile] kainosite, I have discovered the importer tool, so my LJ entries should be imported soon.) But all of my fic can be found at my AO3 account.

If we're friends on LJ and you'd like to be friends on Dreamwidth as well, comment and let me know! I look forward to rebuilding a community on here, if that's what has to be done.

Oh, LJ, why so stupid...

I know I haven't been around LJ much for the last week or so, and I just wanted to let you know that I haven't vanished or anything. ;) I'm still on Twitter, and I'm still around, I'm just not writing at the moment. (Except for Yuletide, which I can't post yet, of course!)

I've mostly been working, and helping my flatmate get ready to move (tomorrow's the big day), and trying to stay warm. I don't know why I'm having trouble writing at the moment, but after October-November's crazy sprint of productivity, I suppose it was bound to happen. 56 fics on the 15th prompt post, in the end - so perhaps I should just relax and let the words come back when they will.

Meanwhile, I'm keeping up with Rev and Russell Howard's Good News, and slowly but surely working my way through Spooks (I'm into Series 7 now, so I've made it to the Armitage era). And trying to keep up with politics, of course! I did watch the autumn statement today, and I'll try to catch PMQs and Gordon tomorrow (hopefully helping the flatmate move doesn't conflict).

Yuletide - well, we won't talk about Yuletide. ;) Except to say that I was by turns intimidated, excited, and challenged by my assignment, and that I aim to give it my very best. It's all so ~mysterious!

I can't believe it's December on Thursday. Where has the year gone?!

On that somewhat bittersweet note, I'm off to bed. If you're striking tomorrow, good luck, and be safe! <3
abluestocking: (parasol shoes)
My weekend looks like it will be mostly spent with my nose in the various volumes of Terry Pratchett's Watch series. I'm on the second one and there are (counts) five more to go.

So this is my weekend:

I blame [livejournal.com profile] kainosite for this. [livejournal.com profile] kainosite recommended the Watch series, and I - who had previously read only three Pratchett books and kept putting off diving into the entire oeuvre - foolishly and wisely followed [livejournal.com profile] kainosite's advice. All hail [livejournal.com profile] kainosite.

Back to the Watch's attempts to figure out the Gonne.

Hello, dearest person! If we have been matched, I love you already. This is my first year doing Yuletide, and I'm so very excited. You're already my very favourite person for volunteering to write in one of my fandoms, and your story will make my Christmas a wonderful one indeed. <333

If you already have an idea and don't need any more input, feel free to disregard the rest of this letter! But if you'd like a little more insight into me and my requests (a tradition I'm told is a very Yuletide one), read on.

General notes: I love all kinds of fic – gen, slash, het, femslash, three(+)somes. Whichever way your muse takes you is fine (although I'd love it if the story wasn't entirely PWP). <3

Things I love: established relationships, first times, the Bechdel test, fingering, awkwardness, teasing, snark, kissing, characters with plans, characters with plans that go wrong, worldbuilding, magic, working through problems, pegging, domesticity, happy endings.

Things I’d rather not see: character-bashing (I adore all of the characters I've nominated), scat, torture, bestiality, under-age sex, incest, non-con.

On to the fandoms and requests!

Yuletide )


Hopefully this letter has helped you learn a little more about me! If you have any burning questions, you could ask [livejournal.com profile] kainosite, who I think knows pretty much what I like. ;)

Oh, if you want to look at some of my fics, there are quite a few of them. My AO3 hub is here. Here are five somewhat representative samples:

1) In Another Life - In parallel realities, three Yvettes try to stay sane and solve a mystery. [many pairings]
2) The Lights of Aeterna (Doctor Who) - A rare example of a non-lolitics fic from me. River and two Doctors. [River/Eleven, River/Eleven/Ten]
3) Laurus Nobilis - Of talking and not-talking, love and work, gags and bay leaves. [Chris Bryant/Jared Cranney]
4) The Princess of Zock - Tony Blair is abducted by aliens. Cracky. [Tony Blair/Gordon Brown, Tony Blair/OFC]
5) Fucking with Miliband - Ed Balls finds out that once upon a time Ed Miliband slept with his wife. Well, fair's fair. [Ed Balls/Yvette Cooper/Ed Miliband]


Thank you again so VERY VERY much for writing me a Yuletide fic. You are my favourite person in all the world, and I can't wait until Christmas! <333

Fic recommendations!

British Politics

How to Shut Ed Balls Up [Yvette/EdM/EdB, NC-17] - This is an amazing ficlet. The former flatmates gang up on Ed Balls. It's bound to make you smile.

Time for A Shag [Nick/David, PG] - Nick is caught on microphone propositioning David. The newspapers erupt with joyful furor, and PMQ's are interesting to say the least. This is another lovely ficlet which really made me smile. The "celebrity comments" in the Fail and all the entendres in PMQs are adorable.

Glee/Star Trek

to boldly go [Kurt/Blaine, PG-13] - This is a really lovely, long crossover. It does both fandoms proud! If you like Star Trek Reboot, you'll love this fic, even if you don't know anything about Glee, and vice versa. If you like both, you'll be ecstatic. :) Really well-written and funny and just lovely. Highly recommended.
