I was gonna wait to read more before I started on Yuletide recs but I can't, because LOOK A HUGE LONG NIRVANA IN FIRE FIX-IT FIC! The Next Life made me laugh, and cry, and laugh, and the character interactions are pitch-perfect. ♥ ♥ ♥ (Spoilers for... the whole series, I guess?)

First dive into the archive today! :D (Still not returning to Yuletide writing, but devouring all the fic remains one of my favorite things about this time of year.) Kicking things off with my year's-end nostalgia fandoms, by which I mean (for now, at least) the stuff still withstanding my Arthurian-legend burnout: The Dark is Rising* and GGK - someone wrote Fionavar this year! And Kim/Dave, no less. (I always get a kick out of seeing GGK fic written by NOT ME, as I don't really know other people who have written multiple GGK stories, lol.)

*Favorite of the lot: Wherein was bound a child, because... well. Because. asdkfja;sldkgj *_________* ♥

So excited to see Riddle-master fic this year omg!! McKillip's trilogy is one of my oldest favorites, and Like Petals from the Bough is basically heart-exploding.

Also, this year I can appreciate Georgette Heyer! Like this Inconvenient Marriage one: Inconvenience- a perfect non-textual love-triangle resolution if there ever was one, hah. And this Devil's Cub one: a thing with feathers- a modern AU that works surprisingly, hilariously, well.

And Bel Dame Apocrypha fic: The Ending is the Same Every Damn Time - Rhys/Nyx, pretty much the way I'm convinced that would go.

And Matrix fic! Ahh, I never realized I needed a fic like Parking in places with girls until I read it. Dorky Neo and awkward Trinity!! Heee. ♥

Also, Queen's Thief, eeeee :D for sins and false alarms is a great look at Gen's attendants, and you got me begging, begging, i'm on my knees is... exactly what it sounds like, heh.

Also excited to see a bunch of stories for Captive Prince and the Imperial Radch! And Gangsta. fic, which reminds me that I mean to read it at some point when I actually have time to spare... And good lord, 57 Hamilton stories (59 if you count the RPF)?! I haven't watched the show or really been particularly tempted to do so, despite my general appreciation for Lin-Manuel Miranda, but at this point I might just have to.

Oh, man, one of the best Christmases I've had in a while; )

I'm trying to keep myself off the AO3 today, but I did manage to read a couple of Yuletide stories, and they are glorious! I received The Sugarcane Drive, which is utterly delicious intriguing and politicking with Eugenie and Jessaline and HOMG YOU GUYS, I GOT EFFLUENT ENGINE FIC, HOW AMAZING IS THAT?!?!? I also managed to read Sincerely, Cindi, a Metropolis: The Chase Suite fic which is one of the best love letters to visionaries and revolutionaries that I have ever come across. I plan to hit up [community profile] dark_agenda's Chromatic Yuletide masterlist and trawl through the Chromatic Yuletide Madness prompts next! :D

Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating, and happy Yuletide/happy Saturday to the rest of us!

as I am taking a brief emotional health break from IBARW. (The post I planned is draining, is all; I shall recommence tomorrow.)

1. Have purchased and devoured Jaidani's SHADOW MAGIC, OMG! SO GOOD. SO SO GOOD. I MIGHT LOVE IT EVEN MORE THAN HAVEMERCY, FOR SRS. If any of you guys have read it, BRING ON THE SQUEE. :D SUBTEXT! SUBTEXT EVERYWHERE, IN LARGE AND SPARKLY LETTERS! (I am resisting [livejournal.com profile] thremedon at the moment, as I don't want to accidentally spoil anybody.) Also, I have some flaily race-related thinky-thoughts (of the win variety) just waiting to emerge, so, y'know, let me know when more of you guys have read it! A party of one ain't a party. *g*

2. Also! I received a NYR story today: Deserving, by mechaieh! It's Haru wo Daiteita, and features Yoshizumi, and is just about making my life- outside of the aforementioned, anyway. ;)

PS- I have been failing MASSIVELY at reading things other than [livejournal.com profile] ibarw lately, so please hurl your links at me: fic must-reads, personal posts, lulz, macros, music/picspams, rants, whatever. I promise I'll play catch-up after this week is over! &hearts

ETA: WIRELESS!FAIL, omg. Have been trying to post this for an hour.
