My main story was RH Plus for [livejournal.com profile] enigel (with All The Help In The World from [livejournal.com profile] daegaer), and had a late flash of inspiration and wrote 200 words of Fenndom for [livejournal.com profile] daegaer.

(Both are entirely SFW.)

And now, I'm off to read all the other things by the person who wrote my main giftfic, because it was gorgeous (Doctrine of Labyrinths; Felix/Shannon).

Yuletide is worth every minute of hair-pulling angst and keyboard-bashing aggravation :)

I saw the near-total lack of requests in one of my favourite fandoms in Yuletide, and changed my signup.

I have no idea what I'll be asked to write, considering that two of my offers have only one requester for oodles of offerers, and another has only 3 requesters.

(Ther are still some WTF? moments, scrolling through the list. TWO PEOPLE want Def Leppard fic. TWO PEOPLE have requested Fenndom, and only one has offered it!)

So - who's doing Yuletide? Who can I froth about it, and berate myself over my offered fandoms with?
puddingcat: (Ragwort!)
I've just got back from seeing "I Am Legend". When did Will Smith go grey? Sadly, no gratuitous shower scene in this film, but a nice pullups one instead ;)

Mind you, I'd still recommend the book over the film any day, even taking into account my love of pre-moon landing SciFi.

All I've done today is some laundry, some washing up (and something inside the rubber gloves has made my hand smell of cheese, and not even a shower and perfume has fixed it), mucked out the cats, knitted a hat upside down and tinked it (to check whether I had enough yarn, and it looks better with decreases instead of increases), started watching season 2 of Dexter (which is starting to frustrate me. It's a lovely premise for a series - a serial killer who only kills deserving criminals who escape the law - but he's too sympathetic) and read some more Yuletide fics. Speaking of which, Pushing Daisies:

It's Provocative and Twice Upon A Time both treat The Narrator as a real person, and do it very well. The tone and humour of the series is there, and Jim Dale (yes, *that* Jim Dale) could really be reading them.

Predictably, there are a lot of Knitting Detective stories. Knit Picking is one of the best, and doesn't read as if the author was sprinkling in as many knitting references as possible to get their point across.

This Other Life could be an outtake from canon. It's the main canon relationship, done in exactly the right style, and goes some way to showing why I no longer completely dislike Anna Friel.

Finally, Happy Endings Are Hard To Come By is femslash. It's rated PG-13 by the author, so probably worksafe. I shouldn't like this - I don't generally read femslash, and never thought I could accept any non-canonical pairings from the show, but it's sweet and funny and won't spoil things for me if they film a second series.

The Betrothal is a lovely, sweet piece based on Victorian Romance Emma. No slash, no smut, just a beautiful story from the points of view of some extremely minor canon characters :)

Dangerzone is the Top Gun fic mentioned before. Just as good on a second read :)

World Enough and Time is Wild Adapter fic, and very nice picture of two people getting used to living together.

Quack Theories on the Care and Socialisation of Felines (testing, testing) manages to be funny and touching at the same time, and avoids being pretentious despite its fancy structure.

Quest for Perfection - more Antique Bakery, slightly unsafe for work, but gets the feel of the manga across well.

The Journey West crosses Journey to the West (i.e. Monkey) with Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and makes it *work*. It's genius.

Hello :) I think I may have got a little carried away with the details section is my requests, but in case you want more, I've wittered on a bit below.

For everyone else, this is for a fic exchange and is Not Relevant to you, so no "Eww, weirdo!" replies, please :p

Eeee, fandom! )
