Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~2750
Disclaimer: So very, very fictional.
Warnings/Content Notes: Involves polyamory/open relationships and real life wives (though in conversation only). Also light bondage and D/s, only partially negotiated but very, very consensual.
Summary: "You need to tell him what to do." Her mouth quirked up in a tiny smile. "He likes that."

Relationship(s): Ryan Suter/Shea Weber, mentions of Mike Fisher/Carrie Underwood, lots of ensemble friendships
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~10k
Disclaimer: So very, very fictional.
Warnings: None as far as I can tell.
Summary: Summer 2012 is not a good summer for Shea Weber. The several months that follow aren't exactly an improvement. (AKA: All the badly-suppressed pining. ALL OF IT. And some resolution, too.)
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] littlesignsof as part of her [livejournal.com profile] sixteenwins prize. It deals with some of the major canonical events of 2012 as known through the end of October (but diverges after that), and is AU in that some girlfriends/wives have been handwaved away for various reasons. It follows a modified version of the original schedule rather than the actual post-lockout schedule. The title is from the poem A Hunger So Honed by Tracy K Smith. I am so very grateful to [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves for the lovely, fast beta (and for attempting to impose some much-needed order on my commas!), to the mods of mini_wrimo for providing a terrific, motivational writing forum that helped this fic get written, and to [livejournal.com profile] nordicwrites for her wonderfully supportive comments as an early reader of a fair chunk of snippets through the [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo process. I also a debt of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] littlesignsof for requesting the pairing! It gave me an excuse to try writing it and ended up inspiring my longest fic yet. Also posted on AO3 here.

Shea is not calling him. He's not calling him because Ryan deserves as much space as he can get to make this decision, and that's that. )

My three wonderful writers (please see my previous post for the long form of these recs, including warnings) turned out to be [livejournal.com profile] curiouslyfic (who wrote the kickass, amazing (and amazingly long), brilliantly characterized, prickly and hilarious Kitchen Confidential fic), eudaimon (who wrote really lovely Will/Tunny/Extraordinary Girl), and [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis (who wrote gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Will/Tunny/Extraordinary Girl -- I have to admit that I suspected it was [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis, which only made me love the story even more ♥) -- thank you all SO MUCH, I loved the stories ridiculous amounts and adore you all! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

At least a handful of people seem to have enjoyed the three stories I wrote, including the recipients, so I'm happy about that. :) Here they are, in case you're curious:

The Intentional Walk to First (2783 words) by faviconathenejen
Fandom: Princess Diaries - Meg Cabot
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Michael Moscovitz/Mia Thermopolis, Boris Pelkowski/Tina Hakim Baba, Boris/Michael/Mia/Tina
Characters: Mia Thermopolis, Tina Hakim Baba, Michael Moscovitz, Boris Pelkowski, Lana Weinberger
Summary: In which Mia has a very distressing thought, Tina is optimistic, Lana wants Mia to come shopping with her, and Michael and Boris are game.

This was for my originally-assigned recipient and I had lots and lots of fun writing it. I actually wish I'd had time to write a few more of the many story ideas juleshadwords had suggested, because they all sounded like fun, but by the time I had re-read all the books I knew that this was the story I just had to write. I just couldn't turn down an opportunity to write some happy poly! And it was highly, highly amusing trying to write in the style of the books.

At the End of Another Lost Highway (1487 words) by faviconathenejen
Fandom: American Idiot - Green Day/Armstrong
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Heather/Will, Heather/Miguel
Characters: Heather (American Idiot), Will (American Idiot), Miguel (American Idiot)
Summary: If Heather were a different kind of girl, she'd call the situation ironic.

I fell head over heels for American Idiot this year, and while a lot of that had to do with the music, a good chunk of it also had to do with the potential of the characters, the way we only see a certain glimpse of them in the musical but it's so obvious that there's a lot more under the surface. When I saw fivefootnothing's request, Heather kind of sprang into my head fully formed, and I was inexorably compelled to write her story. I really, really loved writing her.

Six examples of wood-pulp and ink detritus found crumpled at the bottom of a typical schoolboy's backpack, circa late 20th century: (209 words) by faviconathenejen
Fandom: Andy You're a Star (Song)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Andy/Narrator
Characters: Narrator (Andy You're a Star), Andy (Andy You're a Star)
Summary: Notes, lists, and not-so-idle thoughts.

One of the shortest things I've ever written, but I was attempting give tiny glimpses into a character's world to imply a lot more than in explicitly said. Who knows if it worked, but I had a lot of fun trying. :) Exterlinden's prompt was really inspiring!

And there you have it, my Yuletide in a nutshell. All three stories I wrote had Teen and Up ratings, which isn't toooooo surprising considering they all had something to do with high school. :)

I had hoped to make a rec post before the reveal occurred, but the less online part of my life was super busy this month, so it didn't happen. Hopefully I'll put something together in the coming week. Also maybe a year-end roundup and/or fandom meme or two? We shall see.

Happy New Year, everyone! May your 2011 be everything you want it to be! ♥

I have been lax this year in noting some of the fics I wrote for fic exchanges, so now that my Yuletide story has been revised and uploaded, I'm going to fix that. First, here are pointers to two fics I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] fs_exchange this past summer, and after that I'll be reposting the fic I wrote for Yuletide last year (sorry in advance for the mini-flood of posts).

Apparently I was in the mood for het fluff this summer. I really enjoyed writing both of these! They might give you sugar shock if you read them one right after the other, though. :)

Summary: Hogwarts AU! A tiny vignette from what may someday become a larger universe.
Notes: Written as a secondary gift fic for [livejournal.com profile] rinfics as part of the [livejournal.com profile] holiday_on_ice 2010 fic exchange. More than one of the prompts appealed to me, so my brain started generating lots of other ideas... and now this exists. It is more of a snapshot in time than a full-out fic, and it's essentially a somewhat off-the-cuff experiment, but it seemed like it might be fun to post it as a little bonus fic for [livejournal.com profile] rinfics. Please note that I messed around with everyone's ages a little, but they should still be in approximately the same order, just closer in age. Everyone mentioned in this vignette is in Year 5 or 6. Feedback and constructive criticism is welcomed and loved, always.
