Here are my lovely Yuletide gift and treat. Both well worth reading!

Title: Her Echoes, They Surround
Fandom: The Mummy
Rating: Explicit
Genre: PWP
Word Count: 3779
Characters/pairing: Ardeth Bay/Evy Carnahan O'Connell/Rick O'Connell
Warnings: Well, sex.
Summary: If he beat the monster from Hamunaptra only to go to hell for this instead, it'll still be worth it.

It may be PWP, but it’s very well-written PWP. And not without some seriousness- the beginning is a rather chilling description of how Imhotep and his curse must have affected the common man. And then we get some lovely Ardeth/Evy/Rick, told from Rick’s POV.

Title: Duty, Loyalty, Loneliness
Fandom: Versailles
Rating: Teen and up
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 3653
Characters/pairing: Fabien Marchal/Claudine Masson
Warnings: Quite a few dead bodies..
Summary:Claudine's most regular patient begins sending her the oddest gifts.

Fabien Marchal quickly became one of my favourites characters in Versailles. I also felt there were hints of a relationship in the making between him and Claudine, despite their differences. This fic explores their awkward personalities- neither of them has a very good idea of how to start a love story.

On writing

I’ve started on my Yuletide fic and have managed a couple of hundred words and a synopsis over the rest. And quite by chance I read a Yuletide letter about a fandom I know, but has never considered writing in. Suddenly I had a fully formed idea for a treat and a synopsis and 300 words down on that one too. Ooops.

So, with revising and writing and still wanting to update here, I have formed a PLAN. I will write 400 words on my main Yuletide fic ever day. And when I have done that, then I can write the same amount for a blog post. And after that, I can write 400 words on a Treat, and then circle back to my main Yuletide fic. Which means I will probably post less here, but on the other hand I will get a lot of other writing done. I hope to write at least two Treats, hopefully more and perhaps a couple of drabbles, so if I’m scarce here, you know what I’m doing. :D

So much for getting some WIP’s out of the way before Yuletide- the assignments are already out. At least I managed to finish my Versailles-fic. My assigment looks good and I feel confident I will be able to write something acceptable. All my nomination had offers, which surprised me a little, as at least one if extremely obscure. I know this doesn’t mean I will get fic, but it’s nice to know the possibility is there.

I’ve checked out the fandoms I’m interested in writing in, and I’m sure I will manage to write Treats too. Of course, some fandoms (I’m looking at you Versailles) has favourite characters/pairings I have no interest in writing at all. I never seem to be interested in the mainstream favourites in any fandom. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have someone to squee together with.

The nominations for [ profile] yuletide has opened, and I have submitted mine.

H. P Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward with the characters Joseph Curwen, Eliza Tillinghast and Ezra Weeden. Because I have a hankering for knowing more about Eliza and her marriage to Curwen.

Sir Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe with the characters Brian de Bois-Guilbert and Rebecca of York. Even at the tender age of five when I saw the 50’s version with George Sanders and Elizabeth Taylor as those characters, I pegged them as the two who interested me the most. Something I have held on to through reading the book, watching the 80’s movie version and the 90’s mini-series. I would enjoy a missing scene, but what I really crave is an AU where Bois-Guilbert survives and they meet again. It doesn’t have to be a love story, I just want to know what they would say to each other.

And I did nominate Elizabeth of the Garrett Theatre by Gwendoline Courtney, with the characters Alison, Elizabeth, Nigel and Nan. I want missing scenes and even more fic taking place a couple of years later.

I’m going to hope someone else nominates Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell with the characters I want.

The Yuletide authors have been revealed and I can post my stories here. This is my main gift fic, written for redsnake05.

Title: A Place In the Shadows
Fandom: Penny Dreadful
Rating: All ages
Genre: Gen, friendship
Word Count: 1216
Characters: Vanessa Ives, Sembene
Warnings: None
Summary: Cold in both body and soul, Vanessa finds an unexpected comfort.
AN: One of the things I love about Penny Dreadful is how it manages to evoke such things as smell and sense, not just sounds and vision. I tried to capture some of that in this fic as well. I labeled this fic Gen, but there is a hint of Vanessa/Sembene. Thanks to LilacFree for beta-reading.
