Yuletide sign-up achieved

So much I was tempted to offer, but know I wouldn't have the time to rewatch to get it fresh enough in my mind to make a decent go at a story.

Anyway, \o/. Best part of the Western holidays, IMHO.


Yuletide reveal

I quite enjoyed writing this, besides/because of the self-creeping-out aspect of it.

Time isn't real. There is only what you need, and what it costs.


I got The Monican Way of Death, a beautifully smart look at the history, politics, and underlying *weirdness* of the world of Aeon Flux. It was everything I wanted, and more.

Many, many thanks to my author! (and apologies for the late comment, I was at my folks', and rather bereft of online time).


Yay, Yuletide!

I offered a bucket list this year. Nothing with a big canon, so I can get up to speed if needs be, but with a wider net than usual. I haven't written any fanfic in a long while, so I'm looking forward to it.


Dear Yuletide author

Thanks so much! Have fun. Go for the gusto. Being surprised is half the fun *g*.


In surprising news...

luzula, with questionable literary taste but awesome skill, made a podfic of, among other stories, my old Yuletide 2001: A Space Odyssey story Turing Test. It's here and, trust me, it sounds much much better than anything I could have done.

Yuletide reveal

I wrote two fics this time (I wanted to write more, but given my schedule it'd have been irresponsible to claim more).

Entelechy (Cable/Deadpool in both senses of the term). I don't think I succeeded with this story. Stuff is weird but not very funny, and Wade is just half of his usual self.

Turing Test (a 2001 fic). I like this one more. The language is clunky and, save for a couple of key details, it tells quite a bit more than it shows (the plot nudged me in that direction, but I should have resisted it better), but I think the core idea behind the fic is both logical and meaningful, so there you go.

Lessons learned this Yuletide:

  • If I feel meh about a story, it's probably not going to work out.

  • Simple ideas sometimes have complex implementations.

  • I need to get much better at getting across specific images and moods in a more indirect way.

  • outlawpoet is a beta rock star (I already knew that, but it bears repeating).

Dear Yuletide Author

I tried to send you a message, but the server 500'd on me. I'll try again when I wake up, but just in case you're checking here, the message was

Thanks, thanks, thanks, *many* thanks. This is fantastic - Watson, Mycroft, awesome backstory that makes perfect sense. I love it very much. Thanks!

In conclusion: Yay!

Everybody else, consider this my rec post: An Evening With Mycroft. Don't tell me the title alone doesn't make you want to read it.


Got Yuletide!

It... holds possibilities.


Dear Yuletide Writer:


The first rule of writing Yuletide is Have Fun. The second rule of writing Yuletide is Have Fun.
