There's a group of people doing Interactive Fiction (text-based games and choose your own adventure) for Yuletide. I wanna do one so go post here or comment below with prompts and I'll pick one to do. (Because I'm insane and moving/three challenges due in december isn't enough for me).

Author reveals are up for Yuletide. I wrote two fics, the first of which ended up in the top 20 most read fics of Yuletide, which was awesome. ^_^

Belonging - (Suits, Harvey/Mike, NC-17, Includes BDSM and Sounding) When Harvey catches Mike at a BDSM club, he expects to be fired. He doesn't expect Harvey to pull out his checkbook and buy him.

Bad Ideas and Better Company - (Junjou Romantica, Gen) He knew buying the book was a bad idea. He didn't need it, really, but it called to him. He wasn't the only one it called to.

Also, finally got a chance to repost the HP fic I wrote earlier in the year:

In Shadows Found - (Harry Potter, Severus/Draco/Harry, NC-17) Harry goes missing during an investigation. Draco and Severus team up to search for him.

So, Yuletide was awesome this year. I wrote two fics, one of which was a brand new kink for me. I was all "this is the first I've run across this, must not be a very popular kink but seems okay to me" and then I wrote fic and the Yuletide readers have been proving how very wrong I was about that kink. Like whoa.

Author reveals are this weekend. Whee!

So, to start off, I got five fic. FIVE. And they're all awesome. ^___^

Just a Little Slip - (Grimm, PG, Eddie/Nick) It started with I need you and I trust you and protect my aunt and please. And it’s been so long since Eddie’s been wanted that he just couldn’t say no.
I asked for a fic about Eddie going all animalistic and this fit that to a T.

Not My Type - (Hellboy, PG, Nuada/John) When John gets back, a lot of things are different around the BPRD. Most notably all the elves.
More Nuada/John!!! There is so not enough of this pairing!

Tree Dreams - (Hellboy, PG, Nuada/John) John Myers: Tree Hugger.
Even more Nuada/John, with a slight humor bent and a setup full of awesome and win.

Stop and Smell the Grimm - (Grimm, R, Eddie/Nick) Sometimes Nick forgets exactly how good Monroe's sense of smell is.
THIS!! OMG THIS!!! *flails*

Little Details - (Hanna is Not a Boy's Name, G, Gen) It's not that he minds - but Hanna doesn't share much, so when he does, it feels extraordinarily important.
Fic! For HiNaBN!! Happy, happy case fic!

And other fic I enjoyed, sorted by fandom, with a mix of genres and pairings or lack thereof:

Elenium/Tamuli, male!Aphrael/Talen, genderswitch, NC-17 - Experience
OK, he might have liked to have experimented with men or, indeed, anyone, before he’d married, and still thought it was incredibly unfair that through his hormone-charged teenage years he’d been unknowingly under the thumb of his practically omnipotent future wife and over-protective future father-in-law, but he was married now, and had no interest in dallying with anyone except his wife.

Elemium/Tamuli, male!Aphrael/Talen, genderswap, PG - The Thief and the Hawk

Yuletide authors have been revealed, and thus I can finally link to what I wrote. Also adding in the story I wrote for kakairu_fest (which had the author reveal on the 28th) that I keep forgetting to post.

My actual Yuletide assignment was for Sex Therapist, which is a wonderfully smutty single-volume work by Kazuma Kodaka. I read it a good dozen times as prep for the fic, though I'd originally intended to add more overt occultness to it, then ended up just leaving it to vague mentions. Have I mentioned how much I love writing for obscure manga fandoms?

Coming to Rest (Sex Therapist by Kazuma Kodaka, Tsuzuki/Kain) - The former priest Kain takes on the appearance of the men his clients secretly love, leaving him to wonder if there's anyone who will see Kain for who he really is.

The pinch-hit I grabbed half-way through (early Dec) was for a series I hadn't read before but the universe really intrigued me with it's kink. The two stories that I wrote off of are available online, though I did end up buying the PDF version. (There's a link at the top of the story, it's a whopping $3.) Nearly 7k of pure smut. I don't think I've ever written anything that used that many kink tags. I had to keep looking up what all was in the story. DEFINITELY signing up to write for this again next year.

Electricity (Mate/Whip-Hand by Lauren P. Burka, d'Schane/Terry) - Terry knows that d'Schane is hiding something from him and worries that his lover is slipping away.

And, finally, the last-minute extra fic that I wrote on Christmas Eve, a Rapunzel spin-off. It was supposed to be quick and short. I failed, but at least the story turned out well.

The Boy in the Tower (Fairy Tales/Rapunzel spin-off, original, M/M) - After the prince is thrown from the tower and killed, Rapunzel is left with child. Her son is taken away to live in the tower as Rapunzel's replacement, until a young lord comes to rescue him.

Also, the Kakairu Fest story:

Thorns Have Roses (Naruto, Kakashi/Iruka) - Genma bets Kakashi that he can't get laid in two weeks, but there's only one person that Kakashi's interested in.
gryvon: (Default)

Family Traditions (Steve/Tony) - Tony wants to continue a Christmas Eve family tradition with his new husband.

Black Books

The Quiz (Manny/Bernard) - Are Bernard and Manny "Doing It"? Fran takes a magazine quiz to find out.

The Cable Guy (Manny/Bernard) - Aliens made them do it. That or cable TV.

Notes the the Lint Trap (Gen) - Manny attempts to do his laundry. It doesn't go exactly as planned.

A Matter of Perspective (Manny/Bernard) - Bernard, Manny and Fran get drunk. Then they get drunker.

District 9

No Man's Land (Wikus-centric) - Christopher returns early.

Fairy Tales

No Frog, No Princess - "I would have liked being a frog," said the Prince. "There are all sorts of rules and regulations with dealing about how to turn back into a human. I just can't deal with this now."


Wisdom (Nuada/Meyers) - If anyone could change his mind...

White Collar

a form of human interaction (Peter/Neal) - Peter's acting oddly.

It's the Thought That Counts (implied Peter/Neal/Elizabeth) - Specifically: the thought that inviting Neal for Christmas dinner would not result in any trouble and would, in fact, be an act of goodwill and kindness.

Lost and Found (Gen) - Peter and Neal are asked to look into a unusual case at the Frick museum, only to learn that things are not what they seem.

Feint, Counterfeint (Peter/Neal/Elizabeth) - Things are going really well for everyone. Except Peter, for whom things might be going very badly.

And anyone who's ever had a heart (Peter/Neal/Elizabeth) - Before seeing the picture, she'd just slotted Neal Caffrey in as one more thing Peter's brain couldn't let go of, and amusing yourself while your spouse hunted down the greatest international art thief of the age was certainly classier than being a football widow.
gryvon: (Default)
Got another fic today for Yuletide Madness:
NCIS: LA - A Relative to Truth (Gen) - G's relationship with memory is a complicated one.

Cthulhu Returns (Gen) - It was not my job to save John Marcone.

Getting their life back on track challenges Iwaki, teaching him that he can't always do things by himself.

Here is Greenwood

Descending from Heaven (Shinobu/Mitsuru) - Shinobu's temperament did not tolerate sleeplessness. Either he got some shut-eye or Mitsuru would have to die.

DIY For Beginners (Danny/Nick) - Danny is worried that the temptations of the big city will lure Nicholas back to London, but what can Sandford offer that will tempt him to stay?

After the Explosion, the Days (Danny/Nick) - "There was sort-of-knowing and there was knowing-knowing, and Nicholas had stopped making sense even in his own head." Nicholas and Danny moving forward.

Only got a small way through the archive before the bugs in the sorting system and horrible lag made me give up for the evening, but here's the gems I've come across so far today. ^_^

Across the Universe

Tolkein and the Age of Something Like Love (Max/Jude) - Max and Jude read Tolkien in an age after Vietnam.


Without Words (Silk/Garion) - Inspired by Silk's assurances to the Earl of Seline that Garion's odd accent would be corrected 'when we have leisure'. While Belgarath is out scouting for the night, Silk endeavors to show Garion another use for the Drasnian secret language. Garion, of course, is himself.

Cable & Deadpool

Cable & Deadpool Yuletide Special - ...summary? Is that like a recap page? Huh. Okay. I'm Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. You may remember me from such comics as "Deadpool," "Deadpool," and "Cable & Deadpool," and from my brief appearance in Wolverine's first solo movie, which for now makes me Marvel's latest license to print money -- thank you, Ryan Reynolds. Anyway, now I'm in a Yuletide story, so join me and my buddy Nate Summers, aka Cable, for wacky hijinks and reality-hopping adventure. Say hi to the fangirls, Nate.

"Wade? Who are you talking to?"

Fairy Tales

Queer as the Fork When the Knife Ran Away With the Spoon (Beauty and the Beast, slash version) - Beauty grew up in a box. He divided himself. How could he know who he was, unless he undid the wrapping?

Haven Academy (Ty/Vanyel) - A high school AU for Vanyel and Tylendel - with horses!


Will It Go Round In Circles (Sam/G) - G Callen's day-to-day is not as boring as most other people's.

Sky High

Through the Cracks in the Ground (Warren/Will) - It was Layla who clued him in, actually—they were sitting at the Paper Lantern waiting for Warren's shift to finish when she said, "You guys are like, best friends now," her smile slowly growing as she absorbed that realization. Will thinks it maybe should have been more of an epiphany to him, but it was just so obvious. He's well aware that sometimes he just needs to be punched in the face with things for him to truly comprehend them, and that was one of those times.

The Yuletide archive has finally opened. (Site may be slow for a while due to the hammoring of everyone piling in to read.) Three of my stories are hidden in there. Sadly I only had a chance to get one extra story done for Yuletide Madness, mostly due to the fact that I'm apparently incapable of writing anything short. >.- I ended up with four wonderful fics:

White Collar

Pear-Shaped - When Neal suggests a case all does not go according to plan.

Hour of the Wolf - Neal doesn't like hospitals, most especially when he's the one in them. At least Peter's there to drive him home.

I Owe You One - Neal Caffrey's idea of owing somebody can be rather unique.

NCIS: Los Angeles

Permanent Ghosts (Sam/G) - Talking about his foster brother, Jason, in "Keepin' It Real" has caused G to remember more than he wants to.
