All the stories I wrote this season were tough nuts to crack, in one way or another.

[community profile] crossovering sign-ups finished with me being unmatchable on people I could write for, which gave me first dibs at the list of people who were unmatchable on writers. Fortunately, there was no shortage of fandoms I was familiar with; the only issue was that I hadn't written in any of them before, so trying to do a crossover with two new fandoms was a challenge. [archiveofourown.org profile] saturnofthemoon was requesting several fandoms that I am currently familiar with, one of which I was in the middle of my second consecutive binge-watch on, so I chose her to match with. After tossing around several ideas and combinations, I wrote:

Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. - Leverage/DC's Legends of Tomorrow - 2000 words - Hardison finds an incriminating photograph of Eliot that reveals surprises in Eliot's past and future.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide_admin was a deliberate risk. As big and permanent of a fan as I am of any of The Tomorrow People shows, I did one or more stories in them the last several years, so this year I threw in with Houdini & Doyle, a show I really enjoyed over the summer and had requesters I'm not already friends with. I matched to [archiveofourown.org profile] seren_ccd and, after several false starts and a great deal of research that kept blowing holes in my plans, wrote:

Find a Penny - Houdini & Doyle - 1761 words - Adelaide hasn't always been Adelaide, and she doesn't know if she always will be.

Finally, there was Shortcuts. I really appreciate how the mod for that works to shuffle assignments around so it's not the same people matching with the same people every year. Considering what a small group we are, that must be difficult. This year I was assigned to [tumblr.com profile] morgynleri. Among her character requests was Richie Ryan, who was probably the reason for the match, only my head's in a really specific place with him right now because of the SFC universe that I've now been writing for over a year. So I went with a different character selection and decided to do a story about the spin-off girl Katherine and her mortal husband Nick. I ended up with:

Where the Love Light Gleams - Highlander - 2400 words - Nick only wants his family together for the holidays.

Though I started several, I didn't manage any treats this year. Here's to hoping I can pull something together for [community profile] fandom_stocking
