skieswideopen: Elizabeth McCord in profile (Madam Secretary: Elizabeth)
Wow, Madam Secretary, that's really not what I was expecting you to do. At all. But it could be an interesting season. (And now I see why they've steered clear of using actual party names.)

And now that I have some idea how the season will look, I guess I can write that section of my Yuletide letter!
skieswideopen: Milt Chamberlain in an FBI bulletproof vest (Battle Creek)
I was lucky enough to get TWO Battle Creek fics this year, which was ridiculously exciting for me:

Lost to Be Found - 10,000 words of absolutely delightful Milt and Russ post-series friendship that softens the edges in their relationship a little without getting sappy or out of character.

The Big Nap - A fantastically clever little Milt/Russ story that makes use of my one bulletproof AU love by turning Milt into a PI. Kind of.

And a few other things that I've read and enjoyed:

Anne of Green Gables: To Dream of Happiness (Walter/Una, Teen, 2291 words) - A wistful and hopeful written fix-it AU that matches the tone of the canon beautifully.

Blackadder Goes Forth: Private Correspondence (Blackadder/Darling, Teen, 6472 words) - Blackadder, as usual, is scheming to escape the front and running into all sorts of terrible luck in the process. This captures the spirit and the language of the show perfectly, and I literally laughed aloud reading it.

Justified: all our plans and crimes (Gen, Teen, 2082 words) - Loretta gets a letter and a phone from Raylan a few years after the show ends. This is a really nice look at how things could turn out for clever, competent Loretta. It's not the fate I'd wish for for her, it's an entirely plausible one.

Lord Peter Wimsey: Christmas at Duke's Denver (Peter/Harriet, General Audiences, 2501 words) - A sweet and entertaining depiction of Peter and Harriet's first Christmas with Peter's family.

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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards challenges and [community profile] fandom_stocking. I'm also debating whether to sign up for [livejournal.com 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.
skieswideopen: Jason and Marie kissing (Bourne Trilogy)
I took photos all day planning to do my "day in the life" post for [community profile] thecoffeehouse, but I'm too tired now to edit and upload them, so I'll save that for tomorrow and--since nominations opened today--I'll put up the nominations I'm considering for Yuletide instead.

Yuletide )
skieswideopen: Annie Walker with ear protection at the gun range (Covert Affairs: Annie at the range)
I participated in two exchanges due over the holidays, which meant writing two more fics than I've written in months. So yay for that! Now if only I can manage a few more for [community profile] fandom_stocking...

skieswideopen: A green-and-gold Christmas ornament (Christmas)
I had a good Christmas, with family and turkey and gifts and poker and snow and Doctor Who. In other words, everything Christmas should be! (Well, if you're me.)

And there was fic!

For Yuletide, I got an absolutely wonderful Justified story about Rachel and Raylan helping Tim out and all three of them generally being awesome: Justice, Integrity, Service.

And for the Due South exchange, I received a very lovely Stella-centric fic focusing on her take on her life: I'm Not Sorry I Met You; I'm Not Sorry It's Over.

I hope you all had a fantastic day!
