yuletide!

Yuletide was, as always, intensely difficult in its own special way and ultimately very rewarding. I received THREE (excellently written and tailored to my desires) full-length fics! Y'all jealous.

TWO (!!!!!!!) fics for my request of I Think Emma Woodhouse is Kinda Gay:

Love and Longing by Lysimache, in which Emma falls for an OFC who is delightfully realized and I kind of love also.
Discordancy by Rosedark, which is sexy and tense and to my great joy makes Emma/Jane Fairfax be a thing, AND THEN SOME.

and one for my flaily Dianecentric-but-really-I-love-everyone Twin Peaks request:

Face of the Moon by Amatara, which, no shade intended to any other story, might be the greatest fic ever written*. I JUST. DIANE IS PERFECT AND ALBERT IS PERFECT AND GORDON IS BARKING IN CAPSLOCK AND DIANE CAN TELL COOPER HAS BEEN POSSESSED BY BOB BECAUSE HIS OPINION ABOUT BAKED GOODS CHANGES.

*except of course the other greatest fic ever written, The Ivory Horn by kaydeefalls, which I received for Yuletide 2007.

So anyway THAT WAS A PRETTY GREAT HAUL.

What I wrote was a Hey Arnold! story about Helga and her feelings and also Arnold called Stay and See (What Becomes of Us). Yikes. I can't claim to be entirely happy with this fic, as I know it could use easily a couple thousand more words, but these last two months being what they were, I did what I could. Which was mainly "listen to a lot of Thao and a little Miles" and also "cry at Mem and Mer and Patrick and Imry about it" and most alarmingly "write one last scene on Christmas Eve when Mem told me I needed it even though I had already gotten celebratorily drunk" plus "rewrite and edit through my sobered up exhaustion until an hour before the archive went live"; but I'm left feeling kind of excited by the growth I think that comes with those thousands unwritten words. Because without a deadline cutting me off, I think I might actually write them next time around? (sudden frysquint at self accidentally mirroring Helga/Arnold in the story with my own relationship with writing) Uhhh. Anyway. THAT HAPPENED.

Probably my last LJ entry before bahleetion, woo! SO LONG, FAREWELL, AUF WIEDERSEHEN, ETC.
