My yuletide gifties

I thought I had done this, and I feel utterly terrible for not realising I hadn't done this.

I got two lovely, lovely Yuletide stories written just for me, and I am always, always so incredibly thrilled that people take the time to craft pressies just for me. It is amazing.

yuletide

Reveals!

I wasn't even trying to hide the fact that I matched on mtgat once again on Gargoyles. The part where I wrote my very first Yuletide story in 2003 for Missy (it was Xanatosii marrieds sexyfuntimes) made me glee about writing her OT3 this year. The title, "Hidden Heart" comes from a poem she wrote called "Katharine at 36" and the summary is a nod to that as well.

omg yuletide

Hilariously, I matched on a fandom that pre-dates AO3 and FFN so I am currently yule-stalking my recipient across ancient archives, reading everything they have ever posted (publicly) about that fandom.

As I was in bed last night, half awake, I think I hit on an idea. OMG SO EXCITE. I love revisiting old fandoms. It makes me glee. And luckily, I have access to the source (I've been very very strict with myself the last few years only offering source I know inside-out, or have to hand to get up to speed again relatively quickly).

I am STUPIDLY GLEEFUL that assignments went out so early. I haven't had this much lead-time since 2008, which was the year I wrote All The Yuletide Fic Ever in the History of Ever.

It will also help as I'm going to family this year much earlier than usual, and need to make sure all my stories are in before deadline because there's no guarantee my family won't try and keep me away from the computer as much as possible Christmas week (they do that. It's a thing. They don't seem to get that my idea of "vacation" is staying up til 4am writing).
