Just a heads up that while I'm still going to be reading my flist here, I'm going to be pretty exclusively posting over on Dreamwidth from here on out. You can find me over there as alessandriana as well-- please feel free to subscribe/request access!

*unless I forget, which has been known to happen.

Yuletide Reveals!

For Yuletide this year, I wrote one story for Vorkosigan Saga:

peace and quiet (5836 words) by alessandriana
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Rating: General Audiences
Relationships: Gregor Vorbarra & Ivan Vorpatril
Characters: Gregor Vorbarra, Ivan Vorpatril
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort

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.

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.

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
