I've reached the stage where I'm desperately impatient to reply to the comments left on my Yuletide fics. YULETIDE HAS EATEN MY BRAIN.
I've been reading like crazy, and finally remembered to start bookmarking
... so like everybody else, I'll have a recs post coming out pretty soon (starting with the excellent gift!fic I received).
In the meantime, I'm kind of in love with the fandom I wrote for (which is the other reason I'm so impatient for the Big Reveal -- I want to talk about it!). I know it's a bad idea to expect a one-night stand to turn into True Love, but I just can't help it!!
Actually, I'm not sure that's the right analogy.
Given the amount of attention and planning that goes into writing for Yuletide... it's more like the fandom I wrote for is my prom date, if my steady, Firefly
goes to another school & is so popular she already had plans for prom night. I asked, what, a dozen other people if they'd be my date,(2)
and one of them said yes. We all spent weeks getting ready for the Big Night. And, er, then I ended up dancing with someone else for the whole night (by which I mean writing something I didn't initially offer)... and that's
the fandom I'm in love with now. I totally put out, but it was more than just a one night stand. (1) Given the obvious history between us, I can see how you'd think Buffy was my main squeeze, but I assure you, we're just good friends now. Really. Firefly understands. (2) I didn't ask my ex, the Tortall universe, because I figured she already had a date. I was right -- recs coming soon.
Does this mean I'm leaving Firefly
for the new fandom? Well, um... truth is, it wasn't that serious to begin with -- it's not like we were exclusive or anything. See the icon? I have a whole lot of ideas for a lot of fandoms kicking around inside my head, some Yuletide-inspired and some not. It should be fun -- which is really what this is all about.
