I wrote two fics this year for the Narnia Fic Exchange, which was a shock to me; I haven't been able to write much in years, but not this time!
First, my assignment, for Syrena: Blest is the man ordained to hear our voice
Troubled by an appalling translation of The Odyssey, Eustace questions his cousins and writes to Professor Kirke on the subject of Sirens. Honeyed throats, bah.
Syrena wanted Sirens, translations, parallels, and Eustace, Man of Science, and this was my attempt to deliver on at least some of that!
And then somehow I wrote a 25k Susan Pevensie/Jon Snow treat for Snacky: And I Will Not Come Back the Same
An alliance between Narnia and the King in the North in Westeros is meant to be sealed by the marriage of Susan Pevensie and Robb Stark.
If only she hadn't met Jon Snow first.
Yes, it's a Game of Thrones crossover in which I attempted to write a full AU of the series from S2 onwards while also writing a smutty love story. Spoiler alert: this takes many, many more words than expected. It was enormous fun, has left me with so many future fic possibilities, and might just have led to me shipping Edmund/Daenerys? Strange times.
As usual, I wrote so many.

My Yuletide this year was very mono-fannish; I wrote three stories, all for The Almighty Johnsons.
If you haven't seen/heard of it, it's a delightful little tv show from New Zealand, about the Johnsons, four brothers (plus their grandpa) who are the living incarnations of Norse gods (Baldr, Ullr, Bragi, Hodr, and Odin, to be specific). The three seasons of the show follow them in their various attempts to find Odin's beloved Frigg, so that the gods can regain their full powers. If you follow me on tumblr, you've had the dubious pleasure of seeing many, many gifsets from it; I think Syfy is supposed to be airing it here in the US this year, though I haven't heard an airdate yet. Anyhow, it's adorable and well worth watching.
I'll Find You Another Time
Characters: The Johnsons, Dawn, Michele, Hanna
Summary: It's not that Axl hates his brothers, exactly. It's just that they're so extra-spectacularly useless in the matter of Frigg-finding.
Gathering Seeds to Throw Wide
Summary: Even half a world away from Auckland, Idunn's still there, clouding over her brain like a wound that refuses to heal. And Anders' attempt at playing Bragi is really not helping.
Safe When We're Together
Characters: Dawn, Anders
Summary: Anders is so very not equipped to deal with Dawn's pre-wedding jitters.
Title: To Cover What We Can't Erase
Fandom: MCU/The Avengers
Pairing: Bruce Banner/Natasha Romanoff
Summary: There are reasons beyond the obvious for Natasha to be afraid of Bruce; she never really expected he'd be afraid of her in return.
Notes: This was my entry for Rare Pair Fest 2013; Bruce and Natasha have been my OTP for the MCU verse since the first time I saw The Avengers, so I was happy to finally be pushed into writing for them!

Promo-ing this in case any of my f-list isn't aware of it (I'm thinking of all you 3 Sentence ficcers, where song lyrics were everyone's bread and butter):
A fic exchange for song (or music video) based fic! Come play, it'll be awesome. You can nominate whatever you want, as long as it has lyrics, you can find it online, and it's under 20 minutes.
Nominations are open until August 1st, so dig into your collections and find those songs that have always cried out for longer stories.
Hello, fellow rarepair-loving author! I'll try to keep it brief (never my strong suit) and not gush too much about these pairings even though they are all THE BEST.
( Watch as I fail miserably at that goal of being brief...Collapse )
I have finally decided to learn to use tumblr, rather than just staring at it in confusion and fascination; I've managed to blunder my way into reblogging things, at least.
I am here, reblogging a lot of Game of Thrones and Firefly stuff, mixed with other random things (like bits of history and Richard Armitage's beautiful face) if anyone's interested.
Well, the Three Sentence Ficathon has come to a close at last. Until next year, beloved ficathon!!
Here are my last ten fills, bringing me to a total of seventy-two altogether...
