Dear Yuletide Author

First off I just want to say the most important thing: thank you for writing for me!! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to see what you come up with. :) This is only my second year ever participating in exchanges, and the novelty of getting a present just for me still has not worn off!

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.

Hey, I’ve got a couple Imzy invites to hand out if anyone is interested. (Imzy = hybrid of LJ, tumblr and reddit; based around communities. Still in beta, but it sounds like it’s getting some traction in fannish circles. Looks neat so far.)

Comment with your email addy if you'd like one (comments are screened).
Signed up for H/C bingo again, even though I didn't post a single thing for it last year (whoops). I've already got ideas for this year, though!

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.

(Seriously, if you haven't read these-- GO. NOW. If you have read them, come talk to me!!)

Yuletide Reveals!

For Yuletide this year, I wrote two stories for The Martian:

homesick at space camp (12109 words) by alessandriana
Fandom: The Martian - Andy Weir
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Mindy Park/Mark Watney, Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen
Characters: Mark Watney, Mindy Park, Rick Martinez (The Martian), Melissa Lewis (The Martian), Beth Johanssen, Chris Beck, Alex Vogel, Annie Montrose, Venkat Kapoor
Additional Tags: Grief/Mourning, Recovery, Touch-Starved, Disco, SCIENCE!, Hurt/Comfort

When the producers of The Watney Report had contacted her about doing a final wrap-up show on the one-year anniversary of the Ares 3 mission's return, Annie'd nearly thrown herself off a bridge. She'd thought she was done with this shit.

[Or, seven times they lied to the press.]


start a love train (16018 words) by alessandriana
Fandom: The Martian - Andy Weir
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Mark Watney/Everyone
Characters: Mark Watney, Chris Beck, Beth Johanssen, Rick Martinez (The Martian), Alex Vogel, Melissa Lewis (The Martian)
Additional Tags: Shameless Smut, Post-Canon, Recovery, touch-starvation, Yuletide Treat, no actual infidelity,

Private Log Entry: Mission Day 707

I've been back on the Hermes for twenty days now. And holy shit, is it amazing! I'd forgotten how awesome sex is!

See also: food, but seriously. Sex!

I'm pretty thrilled at how well both of these have gone over (especially considering how far outside my wheelhouse the second one was to write). Both my recipients seemed to enjoy, and I got a pretty decent collection of happy comments, so yay! I call this Yuletide a win.

*Yeah, that's 28k total. I'm currently lol'ing hard at how worried I was that I wasn't going to hit the required word count...

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of things shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

--Little Gidding, T.S. Elliot
