moar yuletide

I am having so much fun reading every time I get a moment to myself, goodness.

First, here are some recs for the things I've particularly loved so far:

nor no man ever loved (Four Weddings and a Funeral) - the film's problematic to say the least re. dead gay people, and this story took my pain away a little. It's lovely.

Five stories the Reader never began (If on a winter's night a traveler) - I've never read the source, but this is incredible. It's about Yuletide, and fandom, and storytelling, and everyone should read it!

Robots Need Love Too (Mythbusters) - aw! This is a Jamie&Adam future school!au and it's completely endearing. I love the worldbuilding and the adorable characterisation. Definitely enjoyable with or without source knowledge.

map. (Public Service Announcements) - this is basically original fic and it's lyrical and soft and gorgeous, all about a friendship/romance, my favourite kind!

Zihuatanejo (The Shawshank Redemption) - oh, oh, oh. Okay, so Shawshank is my favourite film and this is just - well, it's the perfect coda and it makes my heart grow three sizes.

A Matter of Perspective (Black Books) - I cannot even deal with how perfectly the author captures the trio's voices, it's hilarious and wonderful.

Do remember to leave the writers a little love if you enjoyed their stories! They'll be very glad to hear it.


Also, another thing, if you'd like to guess what I have in the Archive, here are some clues! Ficlets to any correct guesses.

+ There are two stories, one in the main Yuletide collection, and one yet to be revealed in Madness.
+ I have mentioned both sources here before, but never written for either.
+ Both prominently feature at least one female character.
+ One is gen, one is not.
+ One is seasonally themed to some extent, the other is not.
+ One is a little bit of a departure from my usual fare, the other is very much not.

Hm - was going to do a fic round up post, but in all honesty I'm not thrilled with my writing output this year. I feel it's mostly marked by the things I didn't write - the big bangs I signed up for, that Late Bloom sequel, all the other bits of WIPs sitting on my computer. Alas.

But briefly, I think Remember Me As A Time Of Day (Merlin, Gwen/Morgana) is my best story, and And Tomorrow (Torchwood, Jack/Ianto, CoE fix-it) is my personal favourite for what are probably obvious reasons. I'm also fond of Someone Else's Shoes (Torchwood, Tosh, Gwen) and Something Old, Something New (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Arthur/Gwen, Gwen/Morgana).

I do feel like doing the vid round up meme, though - vidding was good this year! Also, it means I can procrastinate on festvidding some more.
