So, this yuletide I wrote a PUSHING DAISIES fic. I really enjoyed writing the Narrator and had a blast doing some extra bits for reveal day (which hopefully will go up tonight/tomorrow) depending on when I get to a scanner!

Life has been pretty shit recently. So having something good, something nice to enjoy and celebrate has really cheered me up. I took part in Yuletide and I asked for like random things but one of the things I asked for was Yogscast fic. I've never read ANYTHING in Yogscast fandom before, I enjoy all the videos from the Yogscast (Yogscast are Gaming Youtubers and are hilarious!) And I love the fan artwork people do for which I've drawn some) but the fic has always been that area that I've been a bit tentative to join in with.

But oh my god, my yuletide gift was perfect. It was just character perfect, all the little nuances of the Yogscast and all the little in-jokes and just general slapstick humour. I loved it. It was really, really funny and really awesome and had everyone I had asked for in it! And yet Kim (my favourite) was the star. I loved it. I loved the friendship, I loved the silliness, the plot. Even if you don't know Yogscast you'll enjoy this (but seriously go check them out! Of the Minecraft: Kim's Galactiquest series is a good place to start or Evicted. But they also do other hilarious vids so seriously go watch.)

Dear Yuletide author....
Thank you so much for taking the time to write something for me! I'm fairly easy to please but I would ask one thing in particular: the holidays are a really difficult time for me, I only ask that anything you write be kept as angst-free as you possibly can. A little bit of drama is okay but I don't want to be reading about death, rape, violence at what is already a very upsetting time of the year for me. Apart from that any rating is acceptable!

I've tried to include a prompt to try and give you some ideas but honestly if you go I really want to write X then I will be happy with it. Don't feel restricted by my crazy ideas!

My Requests:
Fandom: Fables: Bill Willingham
Characters: Snow White (Fables - Willingham), Bigby Wolf (Fables - Willingham)
Okay, so I'm a big Snow/Bigby shipper. I'd love anything set in between issues, anything romantic, anything silly, things with the kids, or just things centred around the two. If you're not into Bigby/Snow as I am, then please feel free to write it about their friendship or a Day in the life of a Fable or something from one of their perspectives:

You can write anything you like but prompts: Mundy holiday at Disneyland with all the kids. Snow may punch one of the dwarves. Jack thinks this is the best idea ever. Bigby is going to throttle everyone.

Fandom: Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell
Characters: Cath Avery, Simon Snow.
I was really surprised Levi wasn't one of the characters! But I loved the relationship between Cath and her fiction. If you want to get meta with this one go for it! Want to write Catch writing about Snow in bed with Levi, do it. Or if you want to take the chance to write Cath in Simon's world and her being all "I'M A MARY SUE" do it. If you want to go super comedy go for it or super romantic then I'm all for it. :)

Prompts: Cath has the best idea for a Halloween costume. Levi is unamused.

Fandom: The Wolf Among Us
Characters: Snow White (The Wolf Among Us), Bigby Wolf (The Wolf Among Us)

I love NOIR. Like really, super love noir. And that's one of the reasons I love TWAU and wanted to request both Fables and TWAU. I don't want Bigby/Snow together in this one, I kind of like the tension and awkwardness between the pair. The pre-Fables ness of it all. If you can make this as Noir/Crime related as possible that would be awesome. And the main narrator or character doesn't have to be Snow/Bigby as long as they are heavily featured. Thank you!

Fandom: The Yogscast
Characters: Kim Richards | Nanosounds, Lomadia, Sjin, Simon Lane | Honeydew
Look, I'm a huge Kim fan. I think she's awesome, she's the reason I'm now into games and think she's a positive influence on women in games. I'd love Nano's village stories, Nano as apprentice stories. Or Monster Hunters versus Sjin. Sjin combating the fluxy taint. Monster Hunters versus Magic Police. And Duncan, if this does feature Lalna/Duncan as well I'd be very happy.

*Please note while I don't mind breaking the fourth wall. OOOOH FOURTH WALL. I don't really want RPF, this is about the characters in game mostly for me. Thank you! And it doesn't have to be limited to their Minecraft series but no super violent/horror.

Prompts: Lomadia and Nano are stuck on a spaceship. EVERYONE ENDS UP IN THE LOCKER in ever more increasingly ridiculous situations. Could include all Yogs.

A LEAP OF FAITH (or a scientific theory based upon historical evidence and eye witness testimony.) (2182 words) by butterflysteve
Chapters: 2/2
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Jemma Simmons, Skye (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Leo Fitz, FitzSimmons (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
Additional Tags: Science

"Twas the night before December twenty fifth and all through the Airborne Mobile Command Station, not a SHIELD agent was stirring not even a-"

How would you explain hundreds of years of eye witness testimony? Prove your scientific theory of course, which is exactly what Fitz is going to do (despite Simmons' scepticism) with Skye's help.

So, I wrote this. I'm actually quite pleased with it. And I hope if you read it then you liked it too.

Unstoppable Force, Immovable Object (1879 words) by faviconbutterflysteve
Fandom: Batgirl (Comic)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Cassandra Cain/Stephanie Brown
Characters: Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake, Jason Todd

Stephanie's plans for a perfect holiday go awry when she involves Batman in her holday planning. It's Bat versus Bat in this very special Holiday special.

This was originally going to be Cass has whacky adventures going up against Freeze whilst Steph tries to give her the perfect Christmas but ended up being a little bit of Steph and a whole lot of Cass and Bruce. This is very much Cass/Steph piece and I'm sort of pleased with it even if it did end up being nothing like I intended to write.

worlds between (175 words) by faviconbutterflysteve
Fandom: Hadestown (Musical), The Sandman
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Eurydice (Hadestown), Delirium of the Endless, Death of the Endless, Dream of the Endless, Persephone (Hadestown)

Flowers (Eurydice's Song) as retold by one of the Endless waiting with Eurydice.

If [personal profile] eudaimon didn't guess this was me I will be very surprised. I literally wrote about six versions of this as I have never listened to the whole of Hadestown at all. I adore you and wanted to write you something since you worked so hard on Yuletide so seeing as the Orpheus myth was the only thing I knew out of your prompts I found a song that clicked and started writing. And rewrote when I learned more about Hadestown and rewrote again and again and again. If you really want the original version I will endeavour to find my handwritten copy and type it up for you.
I hope you liked it and thank you for yet again introducing me to yet another thing to adore.

Characters: Abed Nadir, Troy Barnes, Jeff Winger, Britta Perry, Leonard Briggs, Dean Craig Pelton, Annie Edison, Pierce Hawthorne, Shirley Bennett, Neil, the Black Rider

"So this isn't a fake-out plot device. It's a cut-away fantasy sequence episode, where we feature a number of different unlikely sequences that provide a break from the regular format while still showing recognizable traits of the characters." Abed dreams about being the Inspector, and it starts a trend.

I realise I need community icons STAT.

Seeing as Yuletide has been revealed, I can finally say that this year the story I wrote was:

Andrakhnos | Teen and Up| American Gods
The tale of one mother's love for her son Hermes.

And if you really know me then I'm sure you'll all know who the woman was.

In which spells go awry, Howl does ALL THE THINGS, and the whole town seems to have come down with the flu. Fortunately, Sophie is on top of it all.

This was the wonderful yuletide fic I received today. Sophie! Howl! WALES! <3
