Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody!

I'll be posting a lot today, as I have pictures from my trip (going up under flock) and three Yuletide stories to post. Happy 2011, and may it be better than 2010 for all of us!

Guns 'n' Neuroses (Frasier/Supernatural fic - gen, PG-13)

Hi, everybody!

Here's a story I wrote for Yuletide, because I felt terrible for not being able to give my recipient the story she really wanted. Here is the post where she outlined the whole wacky idea, and I ran with it after being encouraged by that dirty enabler musesfool. I owe massive beta thanks to musesfool and oxoniensis for this one - they both stepped up and helped me get a better handle on the story - which, come on, it's Niles and Frasier hunting the supernatural, so I needed all the handle I could get - and how exactly I was writing it (third person omniscient is hard - Chuck Shurley knows what I'm talking about). Anyway, this one was terribly fun to write, and now I'm wondering which crossover I've written is the oddest. A poll follows the story, just because I'm curious.

Kicksplasher (Community, PG-13)

Hi, everybody!

I hope everyone has read the gorgeous, absolutely smashing story that brandytook wrote for me for Yuletide: Stealing Bones (The Fall: Roy & Alexandria). I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Here's my original Yuletide story, for doyle_sb4. She'd requested Community fic, specifically Troy/Abed slash, but I just couldn't bring myself to write those two wonderful, childlike boys having sexy times (sorry!). So I tried to go for romantic gen, like the kind I write in Sherlock (given that I read John as straight and Sherlock as asexual), but I don't think I was very successful. Heaps of praise are due to my beta octette, who valiantly tried to get me to write a better story; this is the best I could do. Troy doesn’t get lonely in long showers anymore.

Perspectives on Paper (The Dot and the Line - gen, PG)

Aaaand here's the last of my Yuletide stories, a little treat in a fandom I didn't even know was a fandom until I saw it pop up on the pinch-hit list - Norton Juster's little book The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics. Summary: The Line, the Squiggle, and the Dot all contemplate quests.
