Well, I have to say, this has been one of the busiest holiday times I've had in a lot of years! [info]yagkyas was just as big as last year, coordinating about 40 new Generation Kill stories through the challege. I was so delighted to receive The Right Time, a wonderful Rudy/Pappy story by [livejournal.com profile] demonic_fish. There's just not enough Rudy/Pappy in the world, and it makes me so happy that this exists!

For [info]yagkyas, I wrote two stories: first, the Haven/Generation Kill crossover Family Confidence which posits Nate Fick as Nathan Wuornos' cousin (not that kind of cousin). Honestly, I wish it could have been more fleshed out, but I'm very glad it exists and it was fun to try and figure out.

Second, I wrote Not Only the Living, a Battlestar Galactica-Generation Kill fusion that makes Bravo Two the Colonial Marines on Galactica in the show. I was ecstatic to be able to write this--I'd wanted to do a BSG fusion for a long time, and to be able to do it for [info]yagkyas was the icing on the cake. I think it should make sense to folks who aren't too familiar with BSG--just think of Bravo Two as Space Marines--but I'm also proud, because I think it was a solid fusion that showed the potential of mashing the two fandoms together.

Because I'm ridiculous, I also modded the [info]dresdenficathon, the first time that challenge had been run since 2008. Dresden Fandom poses some interesting challenges--namely, it's not really a cohesive fandom in the least--but we got 18 awesome new stories out of it, which I encourage you to check out. I didn't receive a story for [info]dresdenficathon, but I did write two stories, both about Harry Dresden and Harry Raith. The first is Trade in Kind, which is about Thomas' proclivities not being as put-upon as the books suggest (or as Harry thinks); and Facing Down, about Thomas and Harry and the stupid things Morgan le Fay's sons do. It's been fun writing Dresden--I haven't written much, so this was a great opportunity to be more active in the fandom.

I did the Inception [info]dream_holiday exchange as well, writing To Continually Descend, a Penrose steps PWP featuring Arthur and Eames, which was cute, and a lot of fun. I received Of Postcards and Love Notes, which was a beautiful multimedia story about the correspondence between Arthur and Eames over the course of their relationship. It's just lovely. <3

Also, earlier this month, I did a couple of pinch hits for [info]happy_trekmas. First, Countermeasures, a Star Trek XI story with Jim Kirk and Bones McCoy and the challenges of the holidays. I also wrote The Vertical Expression of a Horizontal Desire, a Star Trek Voyager Paris/Kim story where Tom takes Harry dancing. That was a lot of fun to write--I hadn't thought about Voyager in years.

And then there was Yuletide. I contributed 6 stories to the main Yuletide challenge this year, which I will enumerate after the new year. I was so lucky to receive two stories this year, both of them for Haven. The first, Two Men, One Woman and a Christmas Tree, is adorable and hilarious, and the second, Proverbial Trees, is wonderfully slow and nuanced with an amazing Nathan perspective. Thank you, Yuletide santas. <3

And now, well. I'm going to watch 24/7 Flyers-Rangers and try to muddle through the last few days of the year. I think I'm going to go see the Portland Winterhawks play for New Year's Eve, and I'm pretty excited for the Winter Classic on Monday. (Have I mentioned I love hockey? I love hockey. Hockeyyyyyyyy.) Mostly, though, I just want to sleep--maybe even until the new year. <3, everyone, especially [livejournal.com profile] shoshannagold, my co-mod for [info]yagkyas this year, and to everyone who helped me get through the last month. It's been a trip.

Oh! I don't know if I left a comment on that GK/BSG story, but I loved it—did I tell you I did? Because I do! You're right, the crossover works surprisingly well.

(Also, whew! That is one hell of a lot of ficathons!)
