I participated in Remix this year, and my writer chose to remix my John-as-a-ghost trope story The Measure of Your Touch (SG1/SGA, John/Cam) into something a little darker, but completely plausible, appropriate subtitled "The Mortal Coil Remix." It's very well done, and a great example of how you can use remix to take a story in a completely different direction.

If you like John/Cam and don't mind going a little darker, check it out.

Night on Fic Mountain went live on Sunday, and I received not one, but two stories. I went into this exchange knowing my requests were all unmatchable, so I'm delighted two people were kind enough to write for me.

My official story was Oblivion (Intelligence, Gen, 1774 words), which features Gabriel and Riley trying with limited success to get some downtime by hanging out with some of Riley's friends from the Secret Service.

I also received a treat: Alterations (Life, Gen, 657 words), which is a great pre-series look at Charlie and Constance.

There are lots of other stories too, in various rare fandoms, which you should check out if you're into that sort of thing.

Written for [ profile] gameofcards. (I had a challenge deadline, so the ending's a bit rushed. This will go up on AO3 after I've had a chance to polish it. Possibly with a new title, since that was also a bit rushed.)

Huh. I wrote more than I thought, actually.

There are two categories of fic here. The first list is things I wrote for exchanges; fic that was beta read and edited and posted to AO3. The second list are stories I wrote for [ profile] gameofcards, which were written in a hurry, and posted unedited and untitled. Read it at your own risk.

Edited Fic )

Unedited Fic )

I keep meaning to edit and expand some of these. Maybe one day I will.

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a good holiday, if you celebrated any of the recent holidays. Mine were typical: turkey and family and gifts on Christmas, and then Chinese food and slightly less family on New Year's Day. It was nice.

My week of reception temp work ended up being very quiet, which gave me time to read some Yuletide fic. I got THREE Intelligence stories, two in the main collection from my assigned author, and a Madness ficlet from someone else. So, so awesome!

Mom Knows Best (4414 words) is a Gabriel/Riley fic that picks up where the series finale leaves off, and I Carved a Block of Wood (2342 words) is a pre-series look at Gabriel & Shen's relationship not long before Riley comes on the scene. They're both by [ profile] shetiger, and they're both awesome and worth reading if you liked the show. And Dear George (332 words, gen) by misura is a cute look at some other possible uses of the chip, and very, very Nelson.

My story was Tidings of Comfort and Joy (2735 words, gen), a Believe story focusing on Tate and Bo, with appearances from Winter and Channing.

This weekend I'm working on [ profile] gameofcards challenges and [community profile] fandom_stocking. I'm also debating whether to sign up for [ profile] shipswap. I do have a few rare pairings I like right now, but they mostly involve single-episode guest stars, which might be a bit difficult to match on. (Seriously. How did I end up shipping THREE pairings involving characters who only show up once?) So I might skip it. I haven't decided yet.
