in_the_blue: (it's FANtastic!)
We had our reveal tonight at [community profile] ineedmyfics. I can't wait to go delve into the stories, they all look so delicious! I got a gorgeous story from [ profile] rirenec for The Outsiders (SE Hinton). It's just beautiful, and I love it to pieces. You can read it here. Go do it, because seriously, it's amazing.

I wrote a few things. It's a small exchange, so I'm always bound to be assigned to someone I know. I was lucky enough to draw [personal profile] lostinapapercup and [ profile] erised1810, since I volunteered to write multiple stories, and I was very glad for the opportunities! I also wrote a little thing for [personal profile] vivien because I could. I'll post more about my stories after all my recipients have had a chance to read.

We don't have the exchange stay anonymous like they do for that week after Yuletide goes live. Maybe in the future we'll get to that point, but for now we feel it's enough to be gifted with a story. Besides, we're small, and it's probably easy to figure out who wrote what if you know enough of the players. It's been fun! This was our fourth year! I hope everyone who participated had as much fun as I did. Thank you, everyone, for making it such a lovely experience.

Prompts are still open, if anyone's interested. There are some great requests sitting there.


In other news, I've been working away at line edits for the next anthology in which my work will be included. Our release date is October 15. The anthology is called Happily Ever Afterlife, and it contains eight reimagined fairy tales with an undead twist! I'm pretty excited for it. In the meantime, if you have a hankering for dragon stories in many different genres, you can still get Dragonthology!! As the days grow cooler and the nights get longer, don't you want a nice warm breath of flame to keep you warm? Of course you do.

I was going to talk about my trip to Arizona, but... nah.

Instead, let me just say how excited I am for this year's [community profile] ineedmyfics. It's shaping up to be fantastic.

Sign-ups are open until the 20th. I would love it if you'd help spread the word with these clickable banners.

Fandom nominations are open (see this post for more information). This is our first year running it on the AO3 and [personal profile] lostinapapercup and I are bravely forging ahead without having done a test run, so if there are blips and bumps in the road, I apologize in advance. So far, so good.

Please pass the word along to your fanfic-loving friends and relatives. We'd love to have a big turnout this year with lots of fandoms represented. If anyone needs an AO3 invite, let either of us know.

No deadlines, no pressure, just a 1000-word story requirement. Multiple people can write the same prompt, and you can write as many as you like.

See how easy we are?

So. For [community profile] ineedmyfics || [ profile] ineedmyfics I got a gorgeous Dragon Age story from [ profile] ashavah called Assassin's Lament. It's Zevran-centric (I'm so predictable). Go read it and leave her a comment, she did a beautiful job. ( DW || LJ )

My fic was a challenge to write, but the good kind. I picked a Harry Potter request from her list and came up with Seeing ThingsDW || LJ ). It's fairly smutty Draco/Luna, which is a new one for me. I've written a lot of HP fanfiction, but I've never written this pairing. Let me know how you think I did. I'm delighted that my recipient enjoyed it.

In non-fic exchange news, I tried taking one of my cats (Will Turner) for a walk today. He got out the other day (somehow, one of the screen door sliders was opened and he was out for a couple hours) and when I got back from work he was waiting by that same slider to come back in. I was relieved he stayed around the house, but he was so calm and happy the rest of the day I thought he could use more of that. But I don't want to make him a free-roaming indoor/outdoor cat because that's too filled with peril and shortens a cat's projected lifespan significantly. So I got a harness and leash, and he was so freaked out by it that all he would do was lie on the grass. When I opened the front door, he went running in so hard he wriggled out of the harness. I figured well, it was worth a try. But every time I went to the door, he followed with his tail up and mewing to go out again. So I think if I keep it up, he might start to like it.

Work's been busy. Writing original stuff's been fun, so has RP. My younger sister finally moved west. I have new boots.

Yeah. That's about it.

*Note: I haven't finished reading all the stories yet and I haven't read a whole lot of BBT fanfic, but does this not sound perfectly Sheldon? "I don't understand why we're having pizza on what is always Thai food night. My stomach is expecting chicken satay. I'm really not sure how well tomato sauce and cheese will be received."
