Summary: Light and genteel laughter spilled out of the foyer. A large group of Barrayar's high society had just arrived, clustering in small groups as they waited to be greeted by the Emperor. Ivan hesitated on the edge of the group, mind racing in circles as he scanned the crowd. He resisted the urge to rub at the spreading patches of red on his hands. I don't want anything to do with this.
I wanted to write more (at least get some treats in!), but I got hit pretty hard by election depression and even getting this much done was a struggle. That said, I'm gratified by the reception it's been getting, so all's well that ends well.
Secondly: There is not a single throwaway fandom on this list; if some prompts are less detailed than others it's mostly because I haven't seen/read it in a while, not because I'm less excited about it. (ETA: This is especially true this year! I'm in the middle of finishing Nirvana in Fire, so that's what's fresh on my mind, and I know that entry is much longer than the others. Don't feel like it's my One True Fandom or anything like that!)
And finally, optional details are, of course, optional. Don't worry if none of these prompts do it for you and you decide to write your own thing! Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected.

Yes, I realize I'm late to the party. But holyyyyy crap is it good.
Is there, like, a new-to-the-fandom guide out there somewhere? I don't think I'm interested in fanfic, but links to great videos, parodies, remixes or whatever would be much appreciated.
I just read all three books in three days and I just. cannot. get over how much I love them. THEY ARE SO GOOD. I just-- Breq. And Seivarden. ahhhhhhhh my babies, what am I supposed to do now that I'm finished???
(Seriously, if you haven't read these-- GO. NOW. If you have read them, come talk to me!!)
