I have hung out a stocking.


If you are interested in stuffing it with treats, drabbles, icons, squee, well-wishes, or anything else, you can do so here. Stockings will open in early January.

Fandom stocking revealed late Friday night (my time) and brought with it some new delights:

  • [personal profile] knowmefirst, [personal profile] valarltd, [personal profile] sharpest_asp, and [personal profile] falcon_horus issued seasons's greetings, the latter of which was done with a screen grab from The Flash that features Barry & Cisco.


  • [personal profile] brightknightie offered some always appreciated Highlander squee on our mutual favorite characters.


  • [personal profile] juniperphoenix and [personal profile] twinsarein both followed through with recommendations for new books to read or listen to, all of which sound delightful. I've already downloaded the audio rec and will begin listening to is as soon as the current book is done.


  • [personal profile] bring_me_sugar offered a gift certificate for a ficlet in a mutual fandom.


  • [personal profile] weaselett made me four Supergirl icons:

  • [profile] jessalryan wrote me an excellent Psych ficlet, starring Shawn and Gus:

    For my own contributions, I only succeeded in finishing one thing, which i gifted to [personal profile] ilien because she stated that she headcanons all shows as Highlander crossovers, and I couldn't agree more:

    Screen Test - Highlander/Forever - <1000 words - Lucas tries to talk Methos out of his movie choice

    NaNoWriMo

    To my complete and utter shock, I managed to win NaNoWriMo again. I wasn't going to participate at all, but then a story bit me. Then another one. I idly kept track of my word count, but didn't stress over whether the daily minimum happened or not. Come Nov. 30th, I was about 5000 words behind--close enough that it seemed shameful not to at least try to win, yet far enough to make it unlikely. The most I've ever written in a day was 3K, and I think that only happened once in the 10 years I've done NaNo. Somehow I managed it. Granted, 4K of that is utter throw-away garbage of characters talking about useless things, but words are words.

    Shortcuts

    My story is finished. It was finished weeks ago. This will be the first year I've done Shortcuts and not blown through the deadlines. Beta reading is in progress and so far is proof of why getting an exchange story beta read is a good idea, because holy cow did I have some stupid errors (big ones, of the 'the character wouldn't do that' and 'the story doesn't make sense if...' type). Plus the plethora of nit-picky errors. There were a couple words in the story that were so utterly wrong that I'm clueless as to what word I was trying to come up with. Once all that is fixed, I really hope my recip likes the result because I am amazingly enthralled with this story and I really want to be able to gush about it.

    I thought I had the title locked down, but the more I edit, the more I think a different one would be better.

    Yuletide

    No such luck here. Blank assignment = no fire.

    Fandom Stocking

    I'm pulling together my stocking sign up now. Mostly it's C&P from last year's with the additions of Supergirl, Psych, and Wolfblood. I keep debating whether to drop one or two of my inactive fandoms from last year's list in the interest of being more concise, then I think that not including them really will mean no chance to getting something in them. What to do?

    Life

    I'd like to be glad that this year is almost over, but that only matters if next year is better. So far, that doesn't appear to be in the cards.

    Prompts

    Methos as a 1970s punk rocker. I'm oddly obsessed with this image right now and I wish I had the skills to draw it myself. I can't decide if he'd play bass or if he'd be, like, #1 groupie.

    Misc

    Took the kid to a Doctor Who convention for her birthday as part of our bi-annual tradition when we're in that town over Thanksgiving. She had a great time! I broke down and bought a new copy of the Big Finish Highlander season 2 audios, which I forced the family to listen to on the drive home. (Only I would go to a Doctor Who convention in order to get Highlander media). Very enjoyable audios and well-done fan works. It's a shame that there won't be more.

    I also talked briefly with the head of BF and he confirmed that they would like to get the TP rights back.

    On the topic of TP, I also took the kid and the nieces to play laser tag on Black Friday. The arena used to have a blue team and a red team. In between my last visit and this one, they replaced all the red gear with green gear. That meant that every game on this outing was the Blue vs. the Green. I may have made a few jokes about that that went right over the girls' heads.

    After much weather-related strife, [community profile] fandom_stocking went live last night. To my delight, my stocking was stuffed with a variety of treats:

  • [personal profile] wendymypooh, [personal profile] sjh2009, [profile] leese_perrie, and [personal profile] twinsarein offered season's greetings and well wishes.

  • [personal profile] lbilover came through on my request for audio books with good voice artists by recommending Elijah Wood's reading of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and anything by the reader Jeremy Northam. (On her rec, I've already downloaded Our Man in Havana and added it to my iPod for the next long drive.)

  • [personal profile] somehowunbroken made me three icons for Kyle Valenti from Roswell:

  • [personal profile] sharpest_asp offered a gift certificate for another true drabble.

  • [personal profile] brightknightie offered well-wishes, a rec for a Richie/Angie story from Highlander, and a promise that I fully intend to make her fulfill :) for a future Richie/Angie story.

  • [profile] lionnessvalenti wrote me Volatile Reactions (1548 words), a Roswell ficlet starring Kyle Valenti and Isabelle Evans, in which Kyle finally gets to come into his powers.

    Overall, this was a most excellent stocking year and a peerless fest year in regards to getting stories I've waited decades to see.

    Thank you to everyone who stuffed my stocking!

    For my own contributions, I only managed to finish two of the four ficlets I was hoping for on time. The other two are forthcoming. Mine were: Face the Music, an original series Tomorrow People ficlet (1529 words), and Security (591 words), a ficlet for The Listener. The forthcoming ones are in Highlander and Teen Wolf.
