So, I have finally managed to read and comment on all of the lovely fics that were written for me. I received three fics, including two coffeeshops AUs in two different fandoms, which I'm really happily amused by.

From this year's bandom holidays collection:

You Make Me Feel (So)
Summary: Z raises a delicate blond eyebrow, and Victoria considers raising one right back, upping the ante in this bizarre game of who’s-more-chill chicken she and Z have ended up in.
Rating: G | 2,838 words | Victoria Asher/Z Berg

Part of this year's yuletide collection, both The Enchanted Forest Chronicles fic:

Day After Day
Summary: The cat walked through the thick bed of moss. A dragon flew overhead. A stream flowed into a pond. Something unknown swung from tree to tree. A wizard did something he shouldn't have. Someone had a nice cup of cider.
Rating: G | 1,045 words

None of this Nonsense, Please
Summary: In which Morwen runs a coffee shop, Telemain grades inadequate papers, and Cimorene does not eat a sandwich.
Rating: G | 1,065 words | Cimorene

There is this embarrassing thing where I need to edit most of the pictures in, still, and all of their descriptions, and that should be done by the end of the day and then hopefully my yuletide shame can be buried.

(I sort of forgot how to write my yuletide letter this year, because I didn't participate last year, I think.)

ETA: 23h: Victory: My yuletide letter is done, which is really good, because that was disturbing, and now my author has an actual finished letter and I can also do other things.

(Sorry, author. You are awesome, and I am sorry.)

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi! I am so sorry that this is as late as it is. Thank you so much for writing a story for me in one of these fandoms. I am kind of absurdly excited for whatever it is that you're writing. ♥

Requests, optional details and fandoms - with pictures and spoilers:

Calvin & Hobbes )

Enchanted Forest Chronicles - Patricia Wrede )

Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010) )

Pasta (TV) )

Other Information )

I love fanfic. I love it for its ability to fill in gaps in a story, to flesh out characters, to explore an idea, to make a point, to be diverting, to show me something I didn't see before. I love its many versions of the same story; I love its tropes. I'm going to be really excited whatever direction you go in. Please, write what you want to write; the optional details are very much optional.

Have fun! And thank you so much, again, for writing something in one of these fandoms! You're awesome!

This weekend, author! This weekend! (This is ridiculous and I'm sorry.)

If you really want to read a yuletide letter ASAP, I have in fact successfully written one before (more than one, in fact) - they're all under this tag here, and there's a 50% chance that I've written about the fandom we matched on before; I requested The Enchanted Forest Chronicles in 2009 and Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec in 2010.

I apologise again for the delay.

(Author: I am writing a letter and it is going to be late.)

Assignments inevitably go out before I am ready to post my letter; that is a thing that I have discovered the last couple years I did yuletide. Like, I have been idly working on it for a while, and last night I was scrambling to finish my sign-up. (Did you know sign-ups finish today, like, really soon?) I think my letter will be up on Thursday. (I'm going to try to finish earlier, but.)

[community profile] bandom_holidays' sign-ups are open now until, sometime on Friday, I think? (That is a thing I need to do after I am done yuletide, because that exchange is awesome.)

...I just clued in today to the part where yuletide nominations are open; they close tomorrow, so, I need to figure out what I'm doing with my three fandoms and four characters in each one.

CWHL RPF? Women's Hockey RPF? The Like RPF? New Waterford Girl? Canadian Pop Music RPF? Pasta? Two Fat Ladies RPF? Historical Canadian Politics RPF? THERE ARE TOO MANY OPTIONS.

There's stuff I want to nominate because they are my yuletide fandoms; each year, I will read stories in these fandoms, and then there's figuring out what I want to request, which is amazingly difficult.

I didn't do [livejournal.com profile] yuletide last year, so this will be my first year with the 3-6 requested fandoms and there are so many choices!

Yuletide! Choices! (Agh!)

Presents!

So, apparently, this December I have received all the RPF.

I got three fics in the main yuletide collection:

Never Mind the Bite Marks
Never Mind the Buzzcocks RPF
Rating: R | 2,418 words | Simon Amstell
Summary: Funny thing, for future reference: if you happen to ring the police as you run for your life — just to let them know that there's an army of zombies in the BBC Centre, and it'd be grand if they could pop by — they're not all that eager to help.

Santa Claws is Coming to Town
Michael Bublé Being Stalked By A Velociraptor (Tumblr)
Rating: G | 1,020 words | Michael Bublé
Summary: Partway into filming his 2012 Christmas special, Michael Bublé had the sudden shocking realization that there was a dinosaur in his studio audience.

Keep Your Head Down
Rating: PG | 1,067 words | Velociraptor, Michael Bublé
Michael Bublé Being Stalked By A Velociraptor (Tumblr)
Summary: Scenes from Michael Bublé's Crazy Love tour.

The [livejournal.com profile] bandomstuffsit that some lovely person wrote for my request was also posted on the 25th:

A Scissor Runner Stole My Heart (So Give Your Heart A Break)
Bandom/Disney RPF
Rating: PG | 6,287 words | Tennessee Thomas/Demi Lovato
Summary: Demi Lovato seems as sweet as apple pie, and Tennessee Thomas is at a party with people she hasn't spoken to in months for a reason. There might be star-gazing involved, but that is debatable. A story about meeting people in different ways at different times, and weird ways of fitting together.

The yuletide fics are all really funny and had bits in them that made me grin and the bandomstuffsit fic is this really nice piece of lovely that's given me this kind of quiet smile.

(I'm happy and glad to be back and tired, basically.)

Dear [livejournal.com profile] bandomstuffsit author and anyone writing for me for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide: I'm going to be afk starting today for about a week. So, if anything goes up during that period, that's what the crickets on this end are about. Thank you so much for writing something for me! I'm really looking forward to reading it!

------

The first [livejournal.com profile] bandomstuffsit story is up on the community; posting runs from today to January 2nd. I am really excited for everything [livejournal.com profile] bandomstuffsit-related. I've really been enjoying everything involved with that exchange.

I ended up defaulting on yuletide. I sort of feel like the happiest defaulter? It's really strange. I've got a complete fic for the recipient that was assigned to me, and then ran out of time to finish finishing my yuletide and also be able to sleep. I chose sleep, so I'll be finishing my yuletide as a NYR story and this way my recipient gets a better story later than the one I would have given them if I finished on time, and another chance at getting a femslash story for yuletide.

Right now I don't have a yuletide gift, which I'm really okay with. I mean, I'm really giddy about everything I requested and would be generally delighted to read fic for those requests, but there is also this giant collection of shiny things. I am not very much fussed if nothing has my name on it.

------

Does anyone else use hotmail? Has anyone besides me been having weird issues with it the past few days? (I can't actually read any of my mail. There is no clicking through from my inbox. It's sort of splendidly terrible.)

Recs for different e-mail services would be very much appreciated.

Hi Yuletide Person! I'm sorry! I'm writing a letter but it's not done or up yet, but it will be by the end of this weekend, hopefully early tomorrow.
