Attention Clarice and/or Jubilee fans!

My [community profile] femslashex fic arrived! It's a fantastic transposition of Jubilee and Clarice's comics backstories into movieverse, and deals with Jubilee's reaction to Logan's memory changes at the end of DoFP and what that meant for the Jubilee & Logan relationship. Clarice's AOA backstory completely works in the less fantastical movieverse, which is impressive in itself, but it also means character development for Creed, and I have to say this is the first time I've ever felt anything positive towards any of the non-AoA versions.

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

With both the past and present rewritten, Logan loses more than he ever knows. Jubilee finds a confidant in the most unexpected place.

Heyo Fellow Yuletider!

This year I am travelling throughout much of the Yuletide period, so this letter is a little more lopsided than a normal one of mine. This isn't because I prefer one fandom over another, but I tend to recycle a lot of my prompts (as they are still things I'd like to read!), and some things were easier to find than others.

The key things to avoid are - no underage sex; and no character bashing.

Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the writing process and would rather you have fun when writing rather than feel like you need to struggle to fit all my prompts or likes - I love these fandoms a lot, so I'm pretty confident I'll love your results. <3

But for those who prefer having something to reference:
I have a big list of likes and dislikes here:

"One More Day" (AO3 | DW)
Center Stage, PG-13, 4890 words, Eva/Juliette, for [community profile] femslashex, October 2014
Eva's come to terms with why she left ABA for a guest stint in London. Now she needs Juliette to understand why she came back.

Shoutout to Netflix for having Center Stage so I could watch a million times in July/August/September...and then getting rid of it just in time for me not to do a final check for my fic in October. Augh.

Anyway, I really liked doing [community profile] femslashex! It's like Yuletide in that I get that smaller-fandom itch scratched a little, but the timing's better AND it's guaranteed to have its focus on ladies (or non-binary folks, but I haven't seen any yet). And then, on top of having fun writing, I actually got both a gift and a treat!

Gift: Masters of Sex episode tag centered around Lillian and Virginia. I can tell my gifter read the rambling I put down in my letter and possibly understood it/me better than I do because this is exactly what I wanted to read for them: their dynamic and acknowledging the tragic elements without dwelling on them. It's a comfort blanket of a story without hiding the tough spots, and I adore it.

Treat: Angel Haze/Ireland Baldwin story using Angel Haze's actual Instagrams as story structure, and the prose makes it read like the story equivalent of an Instagram picture with a filter on it. How delightful is that? I clapped my hands with delight while reading it.

I'm going to go through more of the archive later, but if anyone has any recs, I totally want them! I'll be updating Twitter/Pinboard with my own as I go through.

This is spillover from the March 17, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user Kestrels_nest. It fills the "slavefic" square in my 1-3-13 card in the Trope_bingo fest.  It has been sponsored by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, who is working on some pretty awesome stuff featuring the Puppetmaster and his Marionettes.  This poem belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

This video got to the multicolored pot made from layered glazes, and one of my artisan characters went, "Oh!  I see what he did there!  I want to go try that!"

Yeah, there's gonna be exploding pots for a few weeks over in Waterjewel, and then something stunning will come out of the kiln.  I have up years ago trying to believe that anything was impossible, after the original Insanity Pot made from a whole bunch of different clays in layers like an agate.

The numbers from [profile] julian_tiger's most recent bloodwork are worse, and his weight is down; we aren't going to have him much longer. And I lost Velma less than a week ago. So, try to avoid making significant decisions, and I am doing quite a bit on habit. Things like having yogurt for breakfast, or timing on cups of tea.

One of those habits seems to be exercise, though that's not an everyday thing like the morning yogurt. I hadn't been to the fitness room since Monday, so I went this afternoon. I think it helped my mood, as well as being good for me on other levels. There were two other people in the exercise room, one telling the other what to do, setting the amounts of resistance on the machines, and so on. The one being instructed looked to be in his teens; it was weird realizing that I may have been doing this since before he was born. That's enough years to normalize it, and make it something to do when "normal" feels a bit out of reach.

Yuletide letter 2014

akamarykate: girl writing a letter with text dear yuletide author (dearyuletideauthor)
[personal profile] akamarykate
Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for offering one of these tiny fandoms! Please rest assured that I will be in love with your story; I've been doing Yuletide off and on for a number of years and I've always been thrilled with my gifts. The fact that you're willing to go deeply enough into one of these worlds to write about it is a gift in and of itself.

It's been a couple years since I've done this, and I feel like I shouldn't do a copypasta from previous letters, but OTOH a lot of what I said then still holds true now. So bits of this are repeated, but tweaked for the modern age, and the specific details about each request are from scratch, how's that?
