I... didn't realize it had been that long. This year has been seriously, overwhelmingly Full Of Things -- tons of travel, tons of drama, tons of events and organizational crap that had to get done. But hopefully things have calmed down, just in time for my favorite fannish things to commence! Those being, of course, hockey season and Yuletide. :D I could go on and on about how giddy finding the Hockey News Yearbook in the mail made me, and how I plan to play way too much fantasy hockey this year, and how many thoughts I have about the Dallas Stars (actually more like how many thoughts I have about the entire league and the coming Olympics and hockey in general), but I'll spare you for now. Soon to come, a post compiling all the Women's Hockey fic that I can find on AO3, as people seem to be excited about that right now (as evidenced by this fantastic primer). There is sadly little of it, but it does exist! Maybe there will be more for Yuletide!

Speaking of Yuletide, a preliminary list of potential requests/nominations! Shorter than my usual, as I've been distracted this year and failed to keep a running list, and I don't feel like going back through previous years quite as comprehensively as in the past. But unless something else smacks me in the face (always a possibility!), my nominations (and likely also requests) will be drawn from this list.

Athena (A.M.Works) -- especially if I have the time to put together a primer

Charlie's Angels (2000) (Alex Munday, Dylan Sanders)
Diamond Age - Neal Stephenson (Nell, Miranda, Fiona Hackworth, Elizabeth Finkle-McGraw)

Elementary (TV) (Joan Watson, Marcus Bell, Alfredo Llamosa)
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) (Jeanie Bueller)
Goon (2011) (Eva, Doug Glatt, Xavier LaFlamme) -- there is never enough!
Gosford Park (2001) (Elsie, Mary MacEachran) -- similar to last year's request
Gymnastics RPF (McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross)
Home (Album) - Joshua Morrison
The Last of Us (Ellie, Joel, Tess) -- only about halfway through this so far, so this may change

It's good to see you here! I hope it's mostly been good drama and fun travel, and not too much crap! I also hope LJ will finally let me post and stop eating my comments!

Aww, thanks! There's been some of each, but overall I'd say it was more good than bad, so I can't complain. :) It is very good to see you around as well, and I hope things are on the upswing for you. *hugs*

hallo!!! Yes, Yuletide makes me go 'hmm, I should crawl out from under this rock' too. :)

Witch Week!!! I should re-read that. It is an area of DWJ fic possibilities I have not yet mined for potential awesome. :)

Yuletide is inspiring that way! :D

Currently on AO3 Witch Week seems to be subsumed under Chronicles of Chrestomanci, but I kind of think it should be a separate fandom -- iirc only Chrestomanci overlaps, and he's fairly incidental to the book in most important-for-ficwriting ways (other than being the effective deus ex machina of the plot). But we'll see! It was the first DWJ book I ever read, and I still have a huge soft spot for it. :)
