All right. So, because I for some reason never link before the reveal...
The two fics I received for yuletide were the delightful Folly
, by Tanith and Fierce and Free
by Alianora, both Oona POV fics from Legend. Which, admittedly, if I do much as far as fanfic this year, that's one I think I might want to write in. Largely for exercise, as I found, writing fic for yuletide
treats, that writing was actually something I was able to do for a bit. Yes. I have been having trouble. Like literary impotence. Or something. But that's not what i'm about today. The fics I wrote for yuletide
were: Dream's Labyrinth
-- a Pan's Labyrinth/Sandman crossover, written for ravenbell
's main story this year. From the point of view of the boy, Ofelia's brother.
A word about that right here. Having seen Labyrinth and Pan's Labyrinth, I was struck by the damn similarity, especially in this throwaway boy who is everybody's Object. As you know if any of you have seen my laby fic on ff.net, Prince of Night Places
, I have sympathy for this boy. Now I kinda want to have Toby and Ofelia's brother go off on an adventure. Maybe I'll work him into the latter fic, if/when I pick it back up.
Also, it warmed my cockles that this one got rec'd and commented on a bunch. So hee.Eyn Sof
-- For Adrienne. Um... Foucault's Pendulum
fic. Someone requested it! I couldn't say no! Seriously, as this is my favorite book, it almost felt sinful writing this, but... well, hell. I'm glad everyone who commented now wants to read the Pendulum over again, because it is always to go read the pendulum.The Dancing Master
-- For Farasha Silversand. Phantom of the Opera, actually Musical/Movie stylez (I usually write book), a Meg-centric riff on the fairy tale, "the red shoes". If it seems truncated, I was writing it as a treat in recordtime, so yeah... not one of my better fics, imho, but it was kinda fun. Also, just as a thing, I did intend to leave it open as to Meg and Erik's actual relationship at the end of it. I don't really see them as a pairing, you understand. What I do see, however, is Christine as the biggest twit in twitdom. I like her better as a castrato
.The Mere Shadow of a Man
John Dickenson/James Wilson pr0n. Why is it that subs are so often named James Wilson? Anyway, this was written for my Other Half, and yesh, and it's utterly ridiculous and damn did I have fun writing it, and also not letting her know what I was giggling about while I was writing it. Heee.
And that is that. I am going to go and get more pink champagne.
