arduinna: Santa-hatted Momo (from Avatar the Last Airbender), saying "mo mo mo" (Yuletide)
Yuletide was a little dicey for me this year in terms of timing, but I wanted something positive to focus on, so stuck it out, and I'm glad I did.

I wound up writing Invisible Man, which led to a whole lot of ep-watching and nostalgia. Man, I love that show.

Paying the Rent (4361 words) by faviconArduinna
Fandom: Invisible Man (TV 2000)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Bobby Hobbes, Darien Fawkes
Summary:

The Agency has a new landlord, and it's time to pay the rent.



Many, many thanks to the many betas who read this over and cheered me on and prodded where I needed prodding, especially [personal profile] dorinda, who steered me in the right direction when I was flailing.

And as so often happens during Yuletide, I got a story in return! Actually, I got two, which I couldn't be more chuffed about.

My main story was for Crusoe, a wonderful show that got far, far too little fannish attention. (Here, have a vid. See how pretty and fun?) [archiveofourown.org profile] pwincess did something I would not have expected at all, and went for a five-things set of AUs, all centered around Friday and Crusoe and how they connect. <3

Death and Taxes (3426 words) by faviconpwincess
Fandom: Crusoe
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Summary:

Five ways Crusoe and Friday could have fallen in love and one way they did



The Treat I got was for Night Court, for which there is also far too little fiction, although the lack of fandom makes more sense to me. But I adore Harry and Dan, and was delighted to get a lovely story about them making it over that final hurdle and admitting how they feel about each other. <3

Nothing in My Hat, Nothing Up My Sleeve (2024 words) by faviconCousin Shelley

Also, man, how much do I love the AO3's automated features? Between the share function to make posts like this easier, and the download button so I can do all of my reading on my Kindle - wow, this is awesome. Yay, designers and coders! <3 <3

Thank you so much! The thought of a story in any of these fandoms is already making me happy. Whatever you want to do with them, I'm already grateful, and the happier you are with what you write, the happier I'll be reading it. If you have an idea that you're itching to write, go for it!

I love all four of these fandoms unreservedly, so if you have a yen to explore the universe, or bring in additional characters I didn't list, it's all good.

If you want more information about my requests, though, read on - but please don't worry if your ideas go in a different direction. Optional details are optional! As long as it's for one of these fandoms, and uses the characters, you totally win at Yuletide. \o/

If you're stalking my LJ or delicious for hints about me, my apologies - I never post much, and this year in particular I've been quiet in both places. But honestly, I adore all these fandoms, and will be happy with absolutely anything you write, as long as you enjoy writing it.

And thank you, again!!

Once again this year, I am barely halfway through the archive for the fandoms I know, so once again, recs aren't going to happen for a while.

But I must rec the fabulous story I got:

But a Dream, by Cori Lannam.

It's Crusoe, and it is the very first Crusoe story I had ever even seen, much less read, and it is so good! \o/

I'm not sure how to describe this without spoiling it; it starts with Crusoe waking up hurt and confused, and that confusion is crucial to the story. But Cori nailed everything I love about the show, in a way that I was not expecting at all, and I am flappy-handed with joy about the entire thing.

I admit, it probably won't make much sense if you haven't seen the series, but that should just provide incentive to go watch this show, which is incredibly fun.

(I can't believe this wasn't one of Yuletide's big fandoms this year, or that it isn't this year's hot new slash fandom [gen, too, but this is a show slashers should be going nuts over] -- two hot men, both smart and insanely competent, wonderful complements to each other, running around having adventures on a tropical island together. And living together in a treehouse, and utterly devoted to one another, but with plenty of room for arguments and misunderstandings because they're also very different. And with tons of fascinating backstory that's being spooled out a little bit at a time, to boot. And h/c all over the damn place. And banter and snark and teasing. And regular influxes of people who show up to make trouble before they go away again. Seriously, go watch this show! If you're in the US, all the episodes are on Hulu. If you're not in the US, I'm sure all the episodes are in the usual places. *g*)



And I wrote a story, too, for Thea M, who requested Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.

The Golden Afternoon
Gen, PG
~3,400 words
Summary: An autumn day in the woods with Caine and Peter.

It's also up on my site. [livejournal.com profile] therienne and [livejournal.com profile] llwyden betaed for me, and made the story much better than it was. Thanks, guys!

I had huge amounts of fun rewatching the show to get the voices back in my head properly; it's all about the emotion and people's relationships with each other, with regular forays into danger, fights, and chases to keep things moving.

I was a little nervous because Thea wanted Pop in her story, and I'd never written him; the little dabbling I did ten years ago (... omg, *ten years ago*) was all Peter/Kermit. So of course I wound up writing the entire thing from Pop's POV -- because once I got inside his head, it all just flowed from there. Bizarre speech patterns and all.



Once I recover from the slight burnout of trying to read everything before the reveal, I'll get back to going through the fandoms I know and start pulling an actual set of recs together. Meanwhile, I'm tagging my favorites on delicious.

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much! The thought of a story in any of these fandoms is already making me ridiculously happy. Whatever you want to do with them, I'm already grateful. And feel free to write in more characters than I listed; I like all the characters in these shows, and as long as the focus is on the characters I requested, I'll be happy.

My prompts were a little vague, partly because I love surprises -- so it almost never occurs to me to think "what kind of story do I want to get?" -- and partly because I didn't want to make you feel obligated to meet any requirements. Seriously, whatever you want to write is great, and the happier you are with what you write, the happier I'll be reading it. If you have an idea that you're itching to write, go for it!

If you want more info, though:

And thank you, again!!
