Yuletide!

Once again, I had a very lucky Yuletide. (In the eight Yuletides I've done, I have had this many lucky Yuletides: eight. I have been blessed by the Yulegods.) I was a pinch hit this year (sorry, Yulemods; I swear, I don't mean to scare my assigned writers away), and some lovely person picked up my request and wrote me Resistance, based on the music video Lonely's Lunch. (The title has nothing to do with the video, and neither does the song, for the record.) Resistance is a gorgeous story that provides background and, you know, development for the female main character of the video and worldbuilding for the Earth with Big Ships in the Sky. Also, if that is not enough to tempt you: there is a bonus f/f relationship. It feeds seamlessly into the video, too. This story is everything I hoped for, and shiny, besides.

AND I also got The God of the Sun Goes Down to Earth, a wonderful, evocative treat that packs an awful lot of worldbuilding into a few hundred words. It is a one-bite taste of the same fandom, and it is marvelous.

I encourage you to read them both. Also comment! My writers deserve allllll the comments, for they are both - obviously - amazing people, with immaculate taste. (And I bet they are also kind to animals. You can just tell these things about people, sometimes.)

I've been trying to remember that video for months now! It's so interesting! Can't wait to read the fic!

Oh, oh! I meant to tell you, someone wrote September Issue for me! And it is good! And they need more love:

This makes me so happy! Hooray!

Seriously -- I had a fantastic time writing this story. It was a joy. The video is so wonderful and strange, and I was consumed by the process of trying to figure out what sort of story I could tell about it, and then I had truly fantastic betas who helped me whip it into shape, and it brought me a ton of joy. Plus, added bonus, I got to give you a Yuletide present! <3
