Dear author, welcome! Thank you so much for matching on those fandoms of my heart, and I hope you're going to enjoy writing for them. As always - feel free to mix and match the prompts or go ODAO if needed, as long as you meet my DNWs, and hopefully have fun.

Things I like:
- Hurt/comfort in all its forms is always a sure bet. All the hurt/comfort, you can't do wrong (or be too hardcore) with it. Physical h/c, emotional h/c, captivity scenarios, caretaking, whipping, dungeons, bullet wounds, wilderness survival, whatever. I love hurt/comfort mostly within the context of a relationship (not necessarily romantic - filial ties, friendship, brothers-in-arms comradeship, whichever fits), as an opening for one character to be hurt and for the other to be outraged/terrified/comforting on their behalf. The only thing I'm particular about is who in a particular gets whumped.
- Found families, tight friendships, us-against-the-world, people finding and keeping each other, providing kindness and warmth against the dark.
- Hope and kindness, Clair universes, stories where the entropy tries its hardest but doesn't win.
- Loyalty in all forms! From ritualized (oaths, kneeling, ring-kissing, knights and bodyguards and henchmen and so on) to more casual ways, like standing up for your friends.
- Self-sacrifice (metaphorical and quite literal) and martyrdom (ditto).
- Tropey AUs - space opera! high fantasy! historical! pirates!
- Outsider POVs.

DNWs:
- Hurt no comfort
- Partner betrayal of any kind or infidelity
- Unhappy endings and permanent character death
- A/B/O, hurtcomfortverse, any other 'verses with built-in biology-based inequality
- Hanahaki AUs and variations thereof
- Soulmate AUs
- Mundane AUs
- PWPs

VME continues to be my delight and joy; I'm reusing my previous requests because they already netted me some great fics and I want more. So; VME being sparkly, completely ridiculous, somehow deadly serious despite being completely ridiculous, and full of gorgeous, warm, feelings-filled devotion between Roberto and Hiraga, and I loved each of its weird and wonderful story beats. It's also hella whiplashy in tone, and I guess my prompts will reflect that. In general: bring on candlelit dinners, creepy and twisted cases, true and false miracles, Roberto whump, pining, science, tears and hugs.

The Goblin Emperor - Katherine Addison
Maia Drazhar (TGE)
Action/Adventure, Angst, AU - Canon Divergence, AU - Genre Shift, Character Development, Established Relationship, Hurt/Comfort, Interpersonal Drama, scifi/fantasy


I absolutely adore this book, a story of a previously powerless, painfully self-conscious, horribly isolated person doing his utmost and careful best to do what he has to do. Maia's, at his core, first and foremost kind, and he brings this kindness with him as a banner and as a shield, into a situation over which he has little control and in which he has initially no allies, and sets out to reclaim his empire, one person at a time.

Some prompts that come to mind (but by no means feel constrained by them):

Psmith - P. G. Wodehouse
Group: Mike Jackson/Rupert Psmith
Action/Adventure, Angst, AU - Canon Divergence, AU - Genre Shift, Character Development, Established Relationship, Hurt/Comfort, Interpersonal Drama, scifi/fantasy


Those books are my perennial favorites; I adore the kind hilarity of them, and the intensity of the relationship (whether it's taken as friendship or romance). Psmith is one of my most favorite characters of all time. I love his surety and his unflappability, his low key but endless loyalty and protectiveness, the way he manages to warp the world around himself but does it with benevolence, the way the narrative pokes fun at him but allows him to stand unhumiliated. And I love that Mike is his foil but never the butt of the narrative joke, that Mike's intrinsic value is never questioned or doubted, by the text or by each other. I love how different they are and how wholeheartedly they embrace each other nevertheless, neither trying to change or undermine each other, how much they just - adore and accept and support each other.

And so!

Dear author, welcome! I'm unbelievably excited about this challenge, and I can't wait to see the fic that it brings. I've done my best to prune down the freeform multitude, but I'm 100% sure that there were tags that I have missed, so if there's something in tagset or outside of it that fits my requests or that you particularly like - go for it! Bring all the tropes to my yard, please.

I'll try to give my general likes and some fandom-specific preferences, but feel free to mix and match, or ODAO if nothing in particular strikes your fancy; as long as it doesn't hit my DNWs, I'm good! I'm deeply in love with all those fandoms, and I'll be super, super happy with fic for any of them.

- Unhappy endings and permanent character death
- A/B/O, hurtcomfortverse, any other 'verses with built-in biology-based inequality
- Hanahaki AUs and variations thereof
- Mundane AUs
- PWPs

General hurt/comfort preferences:

I like my hurt hardcore and physical, and my comfort at least somehow proportional and ending on at least a hopeful note, and I like it in context of any given relationship (i.e. the character getting hurt in sight of / for the sake of / in relation to other characters, and them reacting / rescuing / comforting / rehabilitating them, et cetera). I love reading about the aftermaths of disasters as much as I love reading about disasters itself - the recovery, the backsliding, the acceptance, the assistance. Permanent injuries and consequences yes! Adjusting to the new circumstances yes! New understanding yes! And I especially love all those things in the context of larger-than-life, codependent loyalty (formalized or not), self-sacrifice and self-negation.

In particular, the physical kinks especially dear to my heart: torture, dungeons or cages, and rescue thereof, starvation, exhaustion, hand injuries, whipping, crucifixion, all variations on accepting injuries for somebody's sake. For the emotional hurt/comfort, all variations on pining (and/or mutual pining!) and characters (mistakenly) thinking that they're either unloved or undeserving of being loved or protected, and being shown they're wrong.

I prefer my woobies competent, BAMF-y and fighting every step of the way, or going into the self-sacrifice determinedly and with their eyes open (as probably evident in my character selection; never let it be said that I don't have a type.)

I really love non-mundane AUs (high fantasy, pirates, space opera, et cetera), so go there without hesitation if it's your thing.

The Tarot Sequence - K.D. Edwards
Rune Saint John & Brandon Saint John (The Tarot Sequence)
Fanfiction

This book was a bit of unexpected delight I've caught in 2018, and so much fun, on so many different levels - from it's Chronicles of Amber-reminiscent setting to the narrative voice to relationships within. I am especially invested into the idea of the Companion bond, and whatever it entails, and the way Rune and Brand sort this particular thing between themselves: where Brand is Rune's companion, and a bodyguard, and a partner, and a best friend, and a nagging caretaker, and a first and last line of defense, and a deeply treasured loved one, and everything in-between, and the most important relationship there could be. 
Some prompts, just to get things rolling!
Prompts )

Guardian (TV)
Shen Wei/Zhаo Yunlan 
Fanfiction


I adore those two and their deep, unshakable, staggeringly important love for each other. This entire show was an unexpected gift to some deep and unplumbed depths of my id - the loyalty, the longing, the identity porn, the mutual protectiveness, the mutual adoration, people getting tied to the pillars and whipped left and right, self-sacrifice, grand gestures and domestic comforts. I love the mix of ridiculous hijinks and darker themes and full-on grand drama intensity. I love Shen Wei's unapologetic intensity and his rather horrible attempts at subterfuge, I love Zhao Yunlan's frank adoration and ferocious protectiveness, I love their ridiculous team and overall found family vibes, and I just want all the stories. All of them.

So, for example:
Prompts )

Final Fantasy XV
Noctis Lucis Caelum/Lunafreya Nox Fleuret/Ignis Scientia 
Fanfiction


Ignis/Noct/Luna is the tiny treasured OT3 of my heart, and I'm leaping on the chance to request it! I love Ignis and Noct and the intensity of their relationship in all permutations, and I love the potential what-may-have-been in Noct and Luna, and I think those three together would be really - interesting, and grander than each pairing separately. I basically like the idea of Ignis being included in their relationship by the nature of being, well, Ignis, and also Ignis transferring part of his loyalty/fealty to Luna, first for Noct's sake and then for her own, and how they navigate those waters. 

Some prompts!

(Don't) Let Sleepy Demons Lie (1256 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: 镇魂 | Guardian (TV)
Relationships: Shěn Wēi/Zhào Yúnlán
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Snuggling
Summary:

Shen Wei is tired, and Yunlan has things to say.



Wonderfully quiet and languid piece about consequences of Shen Wei's yet another act of heroic martyrdom and Zhao Yunlan's resigned, heartfelt anger and attempt to turn this particular train around. The mood of this story is so palpably beauitufl, sleepy, full of such love and comfort and trust - oh my heart. 

The Crimson and the Wool (2674 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: バチカン奇跡調査官 | Vatican Kiseki Chousakan | Vatican Miracle Examiner (Anime)
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Hiraga Ryouta & Roberto Nicholas
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort
Summary:

Hiraga had always though he preferred the cold, fresh air of the snow and the mountains.

Now, he would give anything for the warmth of a summer day.



vatican miracle examiner h/c casefic! with roberto wounded while protecting hiraga, and almost freezing to death in the snow, and hiraga finding him and bringing them both to safety! my face made the happiest :D shape when i saw it. hiraga's fumbling competence and rock solid faith, and roberto's stoic resignation and utter trust in hiraga, and the serene understanding and stability and knowing between the two of them - everything i ever wanted, oh yeah. so nice.

in your clay (1583 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: 镇魂 | Guardian (TV)
Relationships: Shěn Wēi/Zhào Yúnlán, Wang Zheng/Sang Zan
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Fluff, Humor, Wedding Planning, Happy Ending
Summary:

The one where the SID plan Wang Zheng and Sang Zan's wedding.



Awwww, aww, aww. Wang Zheng and Sang Zan, miraculously rescued from Ye Zun (yesss please), decide that afterlife is too short to wait on anything, and demand a wedding - a wedding that the SID team immediately throw themselves into planning and that, of course, does not go according to any sort of plan. There are shenanigans, trouble, dubious research, hilarious incidents, and a beautifully moving, unexpected denouement concerning Zhao Yunlan and Shen Wei. Somewhere in this nicely liminal zone between laughter and 'awwww,' which suits the show very well.

Dear Fandom5K writer, hello! Thank you so much for choosing my fandoms and writing for me; I hope you're going to enjoy writing whatever you pick, and that my prompts will be helpful to you. I'll try to have a mix of specific and general prompts, but if nothing quite works for you, feel free to ODOA, as long as you don't hit my DNWs and have fun.

I'm reusing requests for some of my fandoms because they've netted me amazing stories in the previous challenges and made me want more, too.

With that in mind:

General likes:
- Hurt/comfort! Physical h/c, emotional h/c, captivity scenarios, torture, whipping, crucifixion, dungeons, bullet wounds, you name it and I've been into it for decades. If it's your kink as well, don't tone it down! Just go all out. I love h/c mostly within the context of a relationship (not necessarily romantic - filial ties, friendship, brothers-in-arms comradeship, whichever fits), as an opening for one character to be hurt and for the other to be outraged/terrified/comforting on their behalf. The only thing I'm particular about, for each fandom, is who is getting hurt and who is doing the comforting.
- Found families, tight friendships, us-against-the-world, people finding and keeping each other, providing kindness and warmth against the dark.
- Hope and kindness, Clair universes, stories where the entropy tries its hardest but doesn't win.
- Loyalty in all forms! From ritualized (oaths, kneeling, ring-kissing, knights and bodyguards and henchmen and so on) to more casual ways, like standing up for your friends.
- Self-sacrifice (metaphorical and quite literal) and martyrdom (ditto).
- Non-mundane, tropey AUs - space opera! high fantasy! historical! pirates!
- Outsider POVs.

DNWs:
- Character death.
- Infidelity and partner betrayal of any kind.
- Hurt without comfort.
- A/B/O universes and mpreg.
- Mundane AUs (coffeeshops, high schools, et cetera)
- Grimdark stories and unhappy endings.
- PWPs.

chocolate box fics are revealed! it was such a fun round, full of really amazing stories and art, and i've gotten very luck with two glorious gifts:

refuge (1034 words) by piscaria
バチカン奇跡調査官 | vatican kiseki chousakan | vatican miracle examiner (anime)
relationships: hiraga josef kou & roberto nicholas

hiraga falls asleep at roberto's apartment.

such a gentle, evocative, fragile scene, full of fraught love and grace and half-denied wishes and overwhelming - generosity, i don't know. closeness and love. everything i love about those two, succinctly and masterfully summed up.

encore, or else (24406 words) by naye
fandom: gintama
characters: sakata gintoki, shimura shinpachi, kagura (gintama), sadaharu, katsura kotarou, shimura tae
additional tags: yorozuya family, hurt/comfort, torture, kidnapping, canon-typical violence, canon-typical vomiting, angst with a happy ending

turning down a job request makes the yorozuya a dangerous enemy - one who will use any means necessary to get gintoki under his control.

incredible hurt/comfort fic that goes alllllll the way there, hitting all the tropes on the way, and that manages to get exactly and effortlessly what gintama even is - absurdity, references, darker stories underneath, families of choices, feats of devotion and heroism followed not made less incredible by fart jokes, and vice versa. this fic made my heart grow like eight times, oh yeah.


i wrote two stories too!

can't take the kid from the fight (3250 words)
魔法使いの嫁 | mahou tsukai no yome | the ancient magus bride
relationships: michael renfred & alice
additional tags: hurt/comfort, sickfic, families of choice, implied/referenced child abuse

alice will make michael proud if it kills her.

old-fashioned orphanfic with all the ridiculous found family goodness i could stuff into it, and two plots going at once. i had a lot of fun with it, and i like how it turned out.

you couldn't have it any other way (2583 words)
final fantasy xv
relationships: noctis lucis caelum/ignis scientia
additional tags: hurt/comfort, serious injuries, confessions, episode ignis spoilers, alternate universe - canon divergence, first kiss, chocolate box treat

“were you ever going to tell me?”

“of course not,” ignis says. there’s no need for explanations: of course not. it’s a horrible thing, the weight of ignis’ love, had always been. the burns are rough and cold under noctis’ fingers.

(au where the conversation in cartanica goes very differently.)

the story of my ignominious descent into ffxv is best left for another time, but here's an attempt to recreate and somehow fix all the devastation this damned game visited on me, with as much high drama as humanly possible. with bonus impalement.

can't wait for the next year to play again.

my gift for [livejournal.com profile] ikel89's secret santa had been waiting for me to return to varna, and we've finally reunited, and it was AMAZING. my apparent secret santa, wonderful [livejournal.com profile] alorarose, read all my heart's desires and sent me:



watercolor pencils! a beautiful skethbook and a beautiful watercolor sketchbook! a gorgeous summer scarf! and a pack of cat toys my cats immediately went nuts over, GOOD CHOICE. it was like the very last drop of general holiday goodness, and it cheered me up to no end and i can't wait to play around with the art supplies, awwww.

thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] alorarose, and i hope your holidays were a thing of joy ♥

Dear Chocolate Box author, hi! Last year doing this challenge was great fun, and I hope this one will be no less, for you and for me. Thanks for matching up on my fandoms and writing or drawing for me!

琅琊榜 | Nirvana in Fire (TV)
Lin Shu | Mei Changsu | Su Zhe, Lin Chen

A meeting between Lin Chen and Mei Changsu aka Lin Shu explains how the Jiangzuo Alliance came into being.

A wonderful backstory fic about bemused lin chen watching newly created mei changsu taking over jianghu, one gang at a time, purely by being brilliant enough that people flock to him of his own volition. great voices, great attention to detail, and this lovely character moment of transition between lin shu the hotheaded prodigy and mei chansu the cold, calculating genius.

In Sickness and In Health (3601 words) 
バチカン奇跡調査官 | Vatican Kiseki Chousakan | Vatican Miracle Examiner (Anime)
Hiraga Josef Kou, Roberto Nicholas

Hiraga tends to Roberto when he gets a fever.

a beautiful, old-fashioned, brilliantly in character hurt/comfort fic that has all the things i hold dear in this fandom within: devotion, gentle snark, roberto's self-esteem issues, hiraga's determined care combined with his utter domestic chaos, and a whole ocean of love between them.

(as a bonus point, my kind author actually managed to work the stigmata into the dream sequence into fic, which is the level of yuletide generousness i strive to attain).

the path of fire you shall tread (2988 words)
Baahubali (Movies)
Sivagami (Baahubali), Unnamed Female Canon Character

Four ways Sivagami could have come to the decision to care for Amarendra Baahubali as if he were her own—and one world in which there was no need.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh yes. sivagami and amarendra's mother, before the beginning, in four different variations - enemy, protege, rival, lover - and in each of the branches sivagami is herself, glorious and proud and bowing down out of love and duty but not obligation. it's beautiful, and i love how each scene contains the entirety of her relationship with the other women completely and fully; you could swim in those imagined timelines forever. (and a happy ending for a bonus which i really appreciated, given the whole - tragedy - of her life).

and a delightful yule madness surprise just that morning, too!

Asi (2605 words)
Baahubali (Movies)
Sivagami (Baahubali), Unnamed Female Canon Character

The first words Shakti says to the Queen Mother are, “Leave me be.”

sivagami and her unnamed female bodyguard from the movie, sivagami seen by the devoted eyes of an outsider, the witness to her self-engineered rise and downfall, and there's so much love and tragedy and rightness in this story, i could barely breathe from it. it's beautiful, and it's just right.


i'm hopping on the plane in a couple of hours, so reading the rest of the archive if somewhere ahead of me yet, but that was - AMAZING. i'm pretty pleased by my own writing this year, too - i wrote four things, neatly separated into tv/movie/book/anime. looking forwards to all the recs and excitement and so on in the coming days.

Dear Yuletide writer, it's this time of the year again! Thank you for having a wonderful taste in fandoms, and thank you for writing for me; I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'll try to list things I love in general and individual prompts for each fandom below, but disclaimer one: if nothing in there really works for you, feel absolutely free to ODAO the hell out of it and just write the story you really want to write! As long as you don't hit my DNWs, I'm excited to read pretty much anything written with love for these fandoms. And disclaimer two: some fandom entries are longer than the others pretty much only because some canons are longer than the others. I've picked out only the fandoms I really, really, really want, and each one of them will make me happy.

Things I like:
- Hurt/comfort! All the hurt/comfort, you can't do wrong (or be too hardcore) with it. Physical h/c, emotional h/c, captivity scenarios, caretaking, whipping, dungeons, bullet wounds, you name it and i've been into it for decades. I love hurt/comfort mostly within the context of a relationship (not necessarily romantic - filial ties, friendship, brothers-in-arms comradeship, whichever fits), as an opening for one character to be hurt and for the other to be outraged/terrified/comforting on their behalf.
- Found families, tight friendships, us-against-the-world, people finding and keeping each other, providing kindness and warmth against the dark.
- Hope and kindness, Clair universes, stories where the entropy tries its hardest but doesn't win.
- Loyalty in all forms! From ritualized (oaths, kneeling, ring-kissing, knights and bodyguards and henchmen and so on) to more casual ways, like standing up for your friends.
- Self-sacrifice (metaphorical and quite literal) and martyrdom (ditto).
- Non-mundane, tropey AUs - space opera! high fantasy! historical! pirates!
- Outsider POVs.

DNWs:
- Character death.
- Infidelity and partner betrayal of any kind.
- Hurt without comfort.
- A/B/O universes and mpreg.
- Grimdark stories and unhappy endings.
- PWPs.

Now, onwards to specific canons! With a blanket spoiler warning for all four.

fandom5k stories are up!

i've gotten a really amazing, thoughtful and lovingly written babylon 5 story about valen (just in case, if you haven't seen the show and plan on doing so, which you should, even the summary is a huge spoiler), and it delivered pretty much everything i ever wanted out of dealing with this character in all his complicated glory. i'm so happy!

the fic is here - city of sorrow, city of peace - and if you've watched babylon 5, you should absolutely check it out.

(my recipient loved their fic, so i'm quite content. spot me in the archive! tv fandom, very obviously me, i think).
eglantiere: (collar)
Dear writer, hello! I'm very happy we've matched on the things I love, and I hope you have fun writing for me. Feel free to ignore optional details if they don't work for you - five thousand words in any of my fandoms will be a grand gift in itself! - but have them in hope they'll give some inspiration.

Here are some general things:

I like:
- You literally can't go wrong with hurt/comfort. It's my oldest and dearest bulletproof narrative kink, and if you're into it, just be as indulgent as you like. I love physical hurt/comfort (and you can go as far as you'd like with it), I love emotional hurt/comfort, I love various (AU or canon-compliant) captivity scenarios, I adore nursing-from-wounds-or-sickness stuff, I'm hugely into any opportunity for the characters to showcase their care and love for each other. I love hurt/comfort mostly within the context of the relationship (not necessarily romantic - filial ties, friendship, brothers-in-arms comradeship, whichever fits), as an opening for one character to be hurt and for other to be outraged/terrified/comforting on their behalf.
- Found families, everlasting friendships, us-against-the-world - I love the stories where people keep and find warmth and meaning in each other within the larger universe even when said universe is not generally benevolent. I love people holding each other against the dark.
- Hope and kindness - I love, in general, Clair universes, stories where there is, ultimately, meaning and hope instead of just entropy and neverending misery. Sometimes against all odds and sometimes at a great price, but getting there in the end.
- Loyalty - there's pretty much nothing I don't love about loyalty kink in all it forms! From its ritualized forms (royalty AUs, knights, oaths, kneeling, whatever you want) to more mundane of being unquestionably and in all events there for the other person.
- Self-sacrifice and martyrdom - give me people sacrificing themselves for others and suffering for the sake of something greater or somebody they love, and I'm a happy, happy reader.

I would prefer not to read about:
- Character death.
- Infidelity and/or partner betrayal of any kind.
- Hurt not followed by sufficient comfort; it's a very well-respected genre, but it's definitely not my thing (as for grievous hurt followed by comfort, then yes, see above and go ahead!).
- A/B/O universes and mpreg.
- Grimdark stories and unhappy endings.

I like gen and shipping fics alike, and porny shippy fics as well, but I would prefer not to receive a PWP story, if possible.

showing off my wonderful gifts for chocolate box! that was an extremely lovely challenge, and i'm so happy with the results.

the mystery of the missing horses (2891 words) by anonymous
fandom: the librarians (tv 2014)
characters: cassandra cillian, eve baird, jenkins | galahad, jake stone, ezekiel jones
additional tags: season/series 03, unicorns, hurt/comfort

a magical mystery leads to eve getting injured.

my delightful gift! eve gets injured, cassandra gets worried and protective, and topics such as military stoicism, unicorns vs. virgins and troubles of finding a date while being a librarian are discussed. a delight of a story.

"We've had a hard day," Eve said, changing the subject.

"That's an understatement." And Eve was perfectly fine, but Cassandra was still scared about something happening to her.

"So I think we've earned a break," Eve went on, but the corners of her mouth twitched at Cassandra's interruption. "Let's go get a drink. If Stone and Ezekiel don't stop arguing, they can buy the drinks."

Cassandra smiled. "Or we'll just sit at a different table. On the other side of the bar."


psmith and the after-lunch winter (3272 words) by anonymous
fandom: psmith - p. g. wodehouse, chronicles of narnia - c. s. lewis
characters: rupert psmith, jadis | the white witch, mike jackson, edmund pevensie
additional tags: crossover

when psmith was still just a wee smith, he had a very strange adventure in some beautifully crafted cabinetry...

psmith meets narnia, and narnia meets psmith: it's hard to say who's shaken more. written in amazing psmith voice, with a perfect edmund to boot, and therefore is hysterically funny.

“I will feel Comrade Jackson’s desertion cruelly, but your solidarity is much appreciated, Comrade Pevensie.”

“Are you a socialist, Smith?” Pevensie asked.

“I am. May I spend the evening swaying you to the cause?”

Pevensie shook his head. “I’m a monarchist, through and through.”

“Constitutional or absolutist?”

Pevensie thought. “Absolute, I suppose. But in practice, I was always open to something a bit more democratic.”


(safe) house in the woods (1851 words) by anonymous
fandom: wynonna earp (tv)
relationships: xavier dolls/wynonna earp/doc holliday, canon relationship(s)
characters: xavier dolls, wynonna earp, doc holliday (wynonna earp)
additional tags: pre-relationship, hurt/comfort, post-season/series 01, withdrawal, implied/referenced torture

of course wynonna's going to get dolls. and of course doc is going with her.

pitch-perfect hurt/comfort follow up to season 1: wynonna and doc rescue dolls and bring him home. seen via doc, who loves almost despite himself and can't let go if he tried, and goes in circles until he ends where he should be. the way these three take care of each other is just so - right; together, they will shake the world.

Doc tries the bed again that night. After about an hour, he heads out to the living room. Wynonna's sitting on the couch, Dolls's head on her lap. Doc considers going to the loveseat, but decides against it, instead sitting on the other side of the sofa, lifting Dolls' feet and setting them in his own lap.

Dolls is breathing heavily, and the shakes are back. Wynonna says, "We're gonna fix this."

Dolls reaches out with one of his hands and squeezes at her knee. Doc says, "Well yeah, we've already gotta plan, haven't we?"

Dolls laughs, a short, huffing noise, but Doc is pretty sure the amusement is genuine. "Yeah," he says. "A plan. Those never go wrong with us."

"Never," Wynonna agrees, with a laugh of her own.

i come bearing yuletide gifts! i had an extremely amazing yuletide, with gorgeous gifts and generous feedback, and so i return over sixty recs for glorious fics in amazing fandoms. enjoy!

first of all, MY LOVELY GIFTS:

playing cards on a marriage bed
the fire's stone - tanya huff  
words: 1,280

darvish, chandra and aaron on the wedding night. careful, gentle, loving exploration, with some beautiful details thrown in - like darvish and chandra playing cards for flower petals, and the petals in aaron color being the most valuable.

(especially adorable: chandra's prowess at cards).

aaron is skittish but learning to trust, chandra is practical and kind, and darvish can't stop himself from giving poetry; and i'm so happy.

pink iris (important to me)
赤髪の白雪姫 | akagami no shirayukihime
words: 4,883

the last words anyone expected to hear coming out of shirayuki’s mouth were, “zen’s been kidnapped!” but that was what had happened, and now it was up to shirayuki, obi, kiki, and mitsuhide to get him back.

if only they would let shirayuki help!

an excellent action/adventure story that reads straight like a missing episode from canon. shenanigans in the woods! crafty bandits! zen lying his head off for shirayuki, obi trying to be do things all by himself and needing help, kiki and matsuhide bailing everybody out with quite competence and shirayuki ruling the day with her secret herbalist badassery. so awesome.

the change: family
the changes series - rachel manija brown & sherwood smith
words: 17,150

mia lee has to check a pipe leak, and rather than have the horror patrol of the century along with her, asks ross and jennie to act as her support team. kerry, at loose ends, invites herself along on what they all anticipate will be a pleasant outing.

what could possibly go wrong?

well, starting with kerry's dysfunctional family. . .

i absolutely don't know what i did to deserve it, but this is an amazing fic. it's practically a sequel to hostage, slotting into place surely and steadily, and it has everything i love about these books - steadiness, friendship, love, negotiating complicating relationships, aiming for love and cooperation rather than strife and conflict. and all the character beats were perfect - kerry not regretting her princess life but missing it (and gloating in the end over the death of her enemies, and knowing not to show it; i loved it so much), felicite angry, ross self-sacrificial but willing to learn other way, mia bashful but valiant, jenny longing but learning to be different. and the action sequence was hair-rising, and the conclusion extremely satisfying. go read it, if you didn't; it'll tide us over until the third book is out.


and the other recs (note that they're not sorted by fandom):


the fire's stone - tanya huff, 赤髪の白雪姫 | akagami no shirayukihime, killjoys (tv), te goblin emperor - katherine addison, the hero from otherwhere - jay williams, jeeves & wooster, jeeves - p. g. wodehouse, dark tower - stephen king, vorkosigan saga - lois mcmaster bujold, earthsea - ursula k. le guin, steerswoman series - rosemary kirstein, chalion saga - lois mcmaster bujold, monument valley (video game), behind you (webcomic), wynonna earp (tv), the tiffany aching series - terry pratchett, discworld - terry pratchett, rivers of london - ben aaronovitch, the librarians (tv 2014), 琅琊榜 | nirvana in fire (tv), live free or die hard (2007), the queen's thief - megan whalen turner, emelan - tamora pierce, old kingdom - garth nix, gentlemen of the road - michael chabon, natsume yuujinchou | natsume's book of friends, the martian - andy weir, riddle-master trilogy - patricia a. mckillip, 아가씨 | the handmaiden (2016), uprooted - naomi novik, piszkos fred | dirty fred series - rejtő jenő, jenő rejtő - works, master and commander: the far side of the world (2003), chronicles of amber - roger zelazny, benjamin january mysteries - barbara hambly, dirty dancing (1987), inda series - sherwood smith, scrapped princess, psmith - p. g. wodehouse, kushiel's legacy - jacqueline carey, tortall - tamora pierce, books of the raksura - martha wells, 田中くんはいつもけだるげ | tanaka-kun wa itsumo kedaruge | tanaka is always listless )

Dearest Yuletide writer, hello! I'm so happy we've matched, and I hope you'll enjoy writing for me and find something here to your liking.

this journal is nine years old, holy wow. i've been on livejournal since 2002 in total, if we count two consecutive russian language witnesses of my emo university days, but i've switched to english language in 2007 and liked it that way ever since. fandoms and books and photos and fics and way too many memes, and talking to you all across the timezones; i'm going to stay until the lights go out, i think.

as a usual annual indulgence, screening the comments: tell me something special if you want, anon or not.

eglantiere: (collar)
it's still snowing outside, relentlessly and softly; i find it endlessly comforting, while we're cocooned inside, safe as houses and cuddling on a whim. most of the day was spent in bed, rewatching old movies and finishing up olivier salad. (well, i've also passed the fourth quiz in my calculus course, derivatives! 6/6 on the first try, either i get smarter or things are starting to coalesce).

meanwhile, [community profile] snowflake_challenge time! in your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. leave a comment in this post saying you did it. include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. maybe someone will grant a wish. check out other people's posts. maybe you will grant a wish. if any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

- more goblin emperor fics!this year's yuletide brought a great harvest of them, but apparently my heart's desire is hurt/comfort with maia being in a center, and maia/csethiro as the main relationship with others being adjascent to it (a poly relationship, a poly v relationship, whatever, but csethiro must be there, for me). outsider povs, maia's household doting on him, political intrigues, whatever. my heart is still not sated, and it's been a whole book.

- i'm always excited and humbled by any kind of related works for my fics - fanart (oh my), or podfics, or remixes (ahhh i want), or anything. i don't think it's unusual ^___^

- i really want baahubali to happen as a fandom. [archiveofourown.org profile] avani wrote me a gorgeous drabble for yule madness, but i want moooore and more and more. and more.


also, dearest [livejournal.com profile] hamsterwoman, as promised to you and inspired by you, 2015 reading roundup! i've tried to at least shortly review everything i read this year (here or on goodreads)), so it's something more of an attempt of a summary. not a bad reading year, all things considered, although a bit lackluster one.

the reasons for living the freedom of words )

january is starting well.
