YAGKYAS Secret Santa Letter

Dear YAGKYAS writer,

You rock for taking this challenge on! Thank you for participating. I love Rudy and Pappy, and especially Rudy/Pappy, and I would happily enjoy a gen or slash story that features them both prominently. I'm a complete sucker for domestic curtain!fic. What Rudy and Pappy's lives might be like after separating, or generally Stateside, would be joyful.

In short, I love Rudy Reyes. I'd love it if you could tell me a story about him.

I prefer realism very, very strongly to fantasy in this fandom, but I would be happy with any rating from gen to explicit. If you go the slash route, I like curtainfic and romantic comedy more than the angst and the drama. I love established relationship.

But at the end of the day, author!anon, I want to read the story that you best want to write, and you should feel free to take the liberties you need to accomplish that story. Have fun. Don't stress out! I'm going to love what you do, especially if you love what you do.

I don't have the brains to do one of those proper year-end round-ups; honestly all I have in my head right now is Jonny Lee Miller's glorious ass and half a dozen different IRS forms. But! Here are the things I received and the things I wrote for challenges, all but for the thing I wrote for Teen Wolf Holidays, which will be revealed on Saturday.

In YAGKYAS, I received the awesome Person of Interest fusion Changing Whatever It Is I'm Changing Into by the delightful waketosleep; it's Rudy and Pappy and it is glorious.

For Yuletide, I received two stories in The Eagle fandom. Then and Now by jeza_red follows Esca and Marcus all the way back from the wall, and works Esca through so many of his conflicts.

Four Seasons by amyfortuna was a Yuletide Madness treat following a year in their lives, lovely and quiet.


For YAGKYAS: vigilantibus aequitas subvenit for spirited_lizard. This one was a Nate/Brad crossover with The Good Wife, and I got super excited about this story; unfortunately, the flip side to running the challenge you're writing for is that you tend to be short on time, so there's thousands of words in my head that didn't make it into the story. Project for 2013? Anyway, I'm still pretty happy with it--I think it gets across most of the characterization points I was trying for in this AUish fusion.

For Happy Trekmas: Speedwork for nightshadow_t2. This was a fun Sulu/Chekov pwp, and I think [personal profile] perpetual_motion was amused at the amount of research I generated for a relatively short story. (It's important to know how big of a track you can put inside a starship, okay?)

I kind of overdosed on Yuletide, picking up seven pinch hits in addition to my assignment. I wrote ten thousand words in three days, at exactly the same time I was putting up YAGKYAS stories and triple-checking that everyone had a story. I don't know what I was thinking, but without [personal profile] perpetual_motion and [personal profile] samjohnsson the wonder betas I think I probably would still be desperately trying to correct the SPAG on all that nonsense. In no particular order:

Antes tarde do que nunca for crushing83; The Newsroom (US TV), Will McAvoy/Mackenzie McHale. This was delicious to write, all that Sorkin dialogue bubbling up in my head again.

Low Frequency Effects for psocoptera; Newsflesh Trilogy - Mira Grant, Georgia Mason/Shaun Mason/(Georgia Mason). I felt like I was kind of winging my way through this one, but I think I stuck the landing. Those two (three) are fucking complex to write, dudes. They don't make any sense, but they are mad crazy in love, so I figured as long as I could illustrate that and throw some snark in there it would be in line with the fandom.

the world goes on for Kass; Newsflesh Trilogy - Mira Grant, Georgia Mason/Shaun Mason. The second Newsflesh story I wrote, which I picked up as an Apocalypse Pinch Hit on Christmas Day. I actually kind of feel like the above story and this one are pretty closely linked together; if I wrote a third, they'd be sort of meditations on the Happily Ever After. (I'm not saying I'm doing to write a third, [personal profile] dira, I'm just saying if I wrote a third.) Anyway, I started to get a better handle on their voices in this one, for all that there's more dialogue in the first.

Celebration for Three Mages and a Wise Man for ayalesca; Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch, gen. I kind of love this the best of the stories I wrote? Though it can't compete with the other lovely stories in this Yuletide fandom, particularly about Thomas Nightingale. (Not that it is a competition!) It was just a treat to write in this 'verse, with these characters, and the concept of their New Year's Eve--and Peter's experience of it as a part of the Folly rather than patrol--was very real to me.

Arrows of the Field for marlowe_tops; Kings, Jack Benjamin/David Shepherd (sort of). I wish I'd had more time for this story, because there was so much more to say. The story of David, and his flight from Gilboa, is a fascinating one both in the show and biblically, and I wanted to be able to poke at it some more and see how to graft the myth onto the show. Ce la vie.

Break the Chain for Quettaser; Step Up Revolution | Step Up 4: Miami Heat (2012), Emily gen. I think this ended up more muted than I would have liked, given the vibrancy of the film, but the thing about Emily (and the Step Up movies in general) is that they gave her a dream and a bare midriff and basically nothing else. The more I thought about Step Up 4 the closer I got to this idea of how Emily got to where she was, why she was that driven. And it had some other dance movie in-jokes in there too.

Those Ever Resolute for Oparu; Good Wife (TV), Alicia Florrick/Kalinda Sharma. This is probably one of my top ten pairings, and I think I've really started to figure out how to write Alicia and Kalinda. It's quiet, and reserved, kind of like them. Alicia is such an interesting puzzle to me; I love teasing out bits of her, especially those that the show likes to wink at as well. There's more there there, and I want to get more into it later on.

Come See About Me for astralis; Haven, Duke Crocker/Audrey Parker/Nathan Wuornos. I honestly thought this would be the most popular of my stories, which it probably would have been if I hadn't forgotten to include a summary in the stupid thing until, you know, tonight. Oh well. Anyway, this started off in a weird maudlin season two place, but got to the snark and sexy pretty quickly; the story definitely didn't end up being what I thought it was going to be, but it was fun and worked for me. I love--well, okay, I love everyone, but as pertains to this story, I love Audrey and Duke's relationship and how warm it can be, even though Audrey is difficult and Duke is probably still doing illegal shit right under her nose. Anyway, hopefully you'll enjoy the lolz and the come-ons as much as I enjoyed writing them.


And that's it, except for one! Yo, before I lose you, would you mind taking a quick poll for me? I'm trying to figure out how best to post my stories, especially since LJ is kind of tanking right now.

Select all that apply:

Where should templemarker post her fic?

Where should templemarker announce her fic?

Thank you and seasonally appropriate greetings to you all. <3

Kalinda wasn"t sure what turned on Lana more: the idea that Kalinda would say no and Lana had to work to convince her otherwise; or the idea that Kalinda would say yes and Lana would get her satisfaction. Collapse )

"Here you are, ma"am," Jenny said, as careful and prim as if a dozen watching eyes were upon them. Vastra quashed a smile, choosing instead to take a sip of her tea. Lady Grey, with the dash of arsenic that gave it such a pleasant spice to the tongue. Jenny was so terribly good to her. Collapse )

Two Rows Up by templemarker [Fringe/Hockey RPF, gen]

Two Rows Up
by templemarker

Notes: A Fringe/Hockey RPF story written because I rewatched season 1 and couldn't shake the notion. Not to mention that Joshua Jackson will always, always be Charlie from The Mighty Ducks to me, so there's a little of that too. More or less set in the first half of Fringe Season 1 with no explicit spoilers. My beta thanks to samjohnsson; this story is dedicated to you.

Also available on adamao, AO3, LJ, and DW.

Peter broke into one of his broad, winning smiles, and brandished a pair of tickets. Olivia stepped closer and took them from him--Boston Bruins, it said, vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, TD Banknorth Garden. "Hockey?" she asked, surprised, looking up to meet Peter"s pleased look. "Hockey," he confirmed, failing to hide his excitement. "I got great seats. I know a guy."Collapse )

Notes: For YAGKYAS's Marine Corps Birthday Good Cookie thread. Thanks to fandomfan for the original prompt, and perpetual_motion for the beta. Also available on adamao, AO3, LJ, and DW.

Just before they go inside, Brad glances at Nate sidelong. Nate is resolute, unafraid, but Brad knows that look. He made his home in that look.Collapse )
