Man, I only planned on writing ONE FIC this year. AHAHAHA.

in which shit goes aft agley )



Long story short, I did finish all of my fics, got them uploaded and edited and pleasing to my eyes, if no one elses, by 11:59 PM on the 24th. I think the pinch-hits weren't as great as they could have been, but I tried, and I loved writing all of them, and I'm so glad the recipients seemed to enjoy them too.

TEN THOUSAND THANK YOUS to my darling, wonderful betas and all the brilliant people in Yulechat, who are all encouraging and lovely and just as crazy as I am. I am totally addicted to Yuletide, now. It was my first year, and I had SUCH a good time, and I can't believe I've never participated before. I've been a terrible fandom lurker for years, and it was great getting to finally give back. I did a number of hippo dances in #yuletide (under the pseudo of "Pillow" -- don't ask) and I also got to beta a TON of fantastic fics, which believe you me will be mentioned in some rec posts soon, because HOMG, did you guys know that being a beta means you get to read awesome fics EARLY? DUDE. IT'S GREAT.

Anyway, even though authors have been revealed, I still have approximately 49 fics I still want to rec, and even more that I want to read, so there will be more gleeful, rambling posts soon. Don't think you've escaped yet.

I LOVE YOU ALL. HAPPY YULE, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR. *dances a victory lap across the internet*

Okay, guys, I have PART ONE of many Yuletide recs posts. I have been neglecting many things and just scrolling through the archives in awe and leaving my rambling comments of extreme delight scattered amongst the fics, and I have not even gone through the merest FRACTION of the archive. YOU GUYS, YULETIDE IS AMAZING, IN CASE YOU HAD NOT HEARD.

And lest you think I exaggerate, behold! I have proof! To wit:

you guys do NOT EVEN WANT TO KNOW how many Yule!tabs I have left open )


Anyway, I have so many more to rec, but I am already late to go see Sherlock Holmes, and so they will have to wait until tomorrow. Or, erm, just later tonight. *g*

YULETIDERS, I LOVE YOU ALL MADLY. ♥

...also, EEEEEEEEEEE, [livejournal.com profile] airgiodslv wrote me a ghost!Andrew ficlet (which will likely only make sense if you know the FtA bandom/HP RPG, or alternately if you just know that Andrew is a ghost and William is a librarian at Hogwarts) and it makes me SO HAPPY and it is not Yuletide but I want to rec it anyway, and so am including it here. :p

I just signed up for another pinch-hit. And no, my other pinch-hit isn't done yet.

In case anyone's been wondering what's going on in my head lately, here! Have the panicked ramblings of a madwoman.

So of course I sign up for Yuletide and then think, oh man, I love this fandom I received as a request, but man, I really wanted to write in THESE fandoms, too. And now I've ended up writing three Yuletide stories at the same time, only one of which was actually requested. And of course that story is the one that I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO WRITE WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MYSELF. It's just such an amazing source and I don't have the slightest idea if I'm doing it justice or not! Brb, weeping into my keyboard.

And then there is ghostfic, and I am steadfastly stuck on this one scene that I already wrote, which got deleted by my computer, because it hates me. There is no other explanation. Skynet is here, and it is Vista. And don't even get me started on my Temeraire high school AU, which began as a fun OT3 piece and somehow has devolved into a Roland/Laurence kinkfest. That is definitely a lot of fun, don't get me wrong, but it has also totally derailed my plot. /o\ DAMN YOUR SEXY EYES, JANE ROLAND.

Of course, there is also my new source of madness and delight, the From the Ashes RP community I joined recently. It is a bandom HP AU and guys, I cannot get enough of it. I spend gleeful hours composing comments and picking out icons and scouring everyone else's threads. I could easily spend MY ENTIRE LIFE playing this game. It is wonderful in all ways and you should all go read it immediately, but omg, I have so many other things to be doing! I set out to have a productive day and instead I find myself spending hours hopefully refreshing my inbox and daydreaming about porny interludes for other characters.

And! In case you didn't think I was crazy enough, I also had this Cunning (ahaha not so much) Plan to write a ficlet for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas. I am deeply afraid this is going to be a massive failure, as are all of my creative endeavors of late (SELF, JUST FINISH SOMETHING, WHY ARE YOU STARTING TEN MILLION NEW PROJECTS?).

I need to get back in a successful writing groove. I need to post something and have it out there and be like, LOOK, SELF, YOU CAN IN FACT COMPLETE THINGS. In fact, flist, help me out! Take a vote!

"Pro cras" means "For tomorrow" in Latin. Good to know, eh? )

So, yes. If I do not post whatever it is I should be posting by next Friday, please poke me with pointy sticks.
