Whoops, I once again totally forgot to post my Yuletide story here!

Damien/Leïto, outsider POV
Jean stuck his head inside the station break room just as Luc was laying out his lunch. “The Captain is sparring with Leïto!” he said breathlessly, and ducked back into the hallway.
I love this fandom, so it was really fun to match on it finally and get to play with the sparring plotbunny I've had for ages, with an actual impetus to finish.

Yuletide! \o! Whoo, assignments! I finally posted my Yuletide letter, and I matched on something that I'm excited about, and I'm about to start doing canon review. Right now it feels like we have so long, though I'm sure the delusion will quickly fade.

Other fannish things:

1) A dude named Derek Wolf is STILL on backorder at the call center where I work. Poor Derek Hale, doomed to never catch a break. Maybe he should have used a better alias.

I am also constantly amused by things like:
-people who live in Waverly, IA
-massage clients who happen to be named Clint
-callers who are named Watson

2) Missed two anniversaries in October: my 9 year LJ-versary, and my 12 year fandom anniversary. Unlike many people, I can actually date it to a specific night: the premiere of Dark Angel on October 3, 2000. I wandered in on the last bit, involving two very pretty people smoking up the screen in leather and a wheelchair respectively, whilst wandering around a dystopian cityscape and kicking ass (all things I am still easy for, btw), and went online to track down a recap of the episode.

I found the recap, and screencaps, and transcripts, and then a forum, and started talking to people who had no idea I was 13 and therefore treated me as the adult I could write like, and then fanfic and friends and Firefly and LJ and the continuing adventures of everything.

Good times.

3) For my reference more than anything, the trope meme ficlets I wrote back in late September, one of which turned into a full story:
(Avengers) Clint/Coulson telepathy not!fic for [personal profile] ignipes
(B13) Damien/Leito secretly-a-virgin speculation for [ profile] inmyriadbits
(Avengers) All Elbows for [ profile] neery, Clint/Coulson 'forced to share a bed'

4) Pretty sure I've read all the Clint/Coulson fic at this point. Like, ALL of it. Even the bad stuff. I'm so desperate for decent fic that I've started re-reading my own stories, which is a course of action that can only end in tears, and I've started to lose perspective on what is good, which is making my writing stagnate. Time to step away for a bit. Or try, anyway.

Yuletide review: just the ticket!

Thanks for the multiple recommendations for Dropbox on my last post, ya'll! I just had to reinstall Windows last night (I think my harddrive is actually dying, but I'm hoping it's just the OS *fingers crossed*), so once I have all my files loaded back on tonight I'll take a swing at it.

In the meantime, I am bored at work (shocking!), so let's play:

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing/characters and I'll tell you something about the story I'd write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write).

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin Damien/Leito for inmyriadbits
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed Clint/Coulson for neery
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. presumed dead/fix-it
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy Clint/Coulson for ignipes
15. High School / College AU

(with a substitution for 12 because the idea of writing kidfic is just...I have no idea where I would even start! I literally cannot remember a single plotbunny I've had involving children, now that I think of it....)

TITLE: Phone Tag
FANDOM: Banlieue 13 (aka District B13)
LENGTH: 6540 words
SUMMARY: Five times Leïto left a message for Damien, and one time Damien left a message for Leïto. Set in the three-year period between the movies.
NOTES: This fic owes its life to [ profile] inmyriadbits - we're talking one of those melodramatic life-debt types of situations, so when she asked for it to be given to her as a Yuletide NYR, I could only say yes. (That today is our birthday is just a bonus.) I'd apologize for making you beta your own present, but you looked like you were having fun. ;) Additional beta thanks to [ profile] bloodygoodgirl.
