mayhap: coffee stain with text brown ring of quality (brown ring of quality)
I wrote a treat for [personal profile] naraht for Bad Bang IV: The World's Worst Exchange. It is probably not as bad as it could be, but it's still pretty bad. I had so much fun writing and illustrating it.

Je ne suis pas un cadeau et mes cadeaux encore moins (449 words) by Nelja

Rating: General Audiences

Additional Tags: Humor, Gift Giving, Worst at Friendship
Summary:

Odin et Loki s'interrogent : qu'offrir à l'autre pour le nouvel an ? Il faut que ce soit le pire cadeau de l'histoire des cadeaux. Leur honneur est en jeu !

Norse Mythology was always a rare fandom, but now you have to craft increasingly-arcane queries to confirm just how little non-Marvel fic there actually is. And then sometimes it's in French. Luckily, I read French!


Learning Russian (1210 words) by perevision
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: William Wilcox/Amedeo Kaplan, Jake Kaplan/;)
Characters: William Wilcox, Amedeo Kaplan, Jake Kaplan
Additional Tags: Books, E.L. Konigsburg
Summary:

Several years later, Amedeo no longer feels like a member of Aloners Anonymous, but he still hears the double exclamation points when he thinks William Wilcox's name.

I love this book so much—it's one of my favorite Konigsburgs, and she was one of my favorite authors, ever. There should be more fic for it, but as there's only the one, luckily it's delightful.


When Wart met the Doctor (1470 words) by SansSerif
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who, Once and Future King series - T. H. White
Rating: General Audiences

Additional Tags: Sword in the Stone, Christmas, Feast, Questing, dragon - Freeform, Acting, Forest Sauvage
Summary:

“It was Christmas night and the proper things had been done. … There had been mummers to play an exciting dramatic presentation of a story in which St. George and a Saracen and a funny Doctor did surprising things…” — TH White’s Sword in the Stone c.1939

I don't know the classic Doctors well enough to work out which one I think this is! Perfect idea for a crossover, though.


the beatings will continue until morale improves (1621 words) by astolat
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson
Additional Tags: Spanking, BDSM, First Time, 3x01-The Empty Hearse
Summary:

"This is why you didn't tell me, isn't it," John said.

So I actually really hate it when people slap and/or punch each other, especially if it's played for laughs, unless one or more parties are deriving sexual gratification from it, in which case I love it, so this is, like, fix-it fic for me.
mayhap: monks with text check out my gospel of mark fanfic / you are not a very good monk (Biblefic)
Technically, none of these stories exist—yet; this is a problem that could be remedied!—but [personal profile] wisdomeagle came up with six superb Bible crossovers in honor of my birthday. I mean, come on, who doesn't want to read and/or write Jael the Vampire Slayer?

The rest of my birthday was equally fabulous! I found a copy of P. G. Wodehouse: A Life in Letters at Half Price Books after they cunningly lured me in with a special birthday coupon. Although, quite inexplicably, they have all their Wodehouse shelved in the Mystery section…
mayhap: Kristy and Mary Anne, pillow fight! (Kristy/Mary Anne)
I only have two stories to share this week, but they're both amazing and they both have illustrations!

Babysitter of the Daleks by [livejournal.com profile] sloth_in_a_box, [livejournal.com profile] lippian and [livejournal.com profile] aceattorneysho
Baby-sitters Club/Doctor Who (Eleventh Doctor) crossover. Gen/Humor/Crack. ~PG. 31,820 words.
The Eleventh Doctor comes to Stoneybrook and unlocks the alien mystery of its perpetually-looping timeline (among other things) in this Baby-sitters Club Christmas Super Special.

As a huge fan of DW, the BSC, and cracktastic crossovers, I knew I was going to love this story the minute I saw the lovingly hand-rendered cover. It is absolutely filled with in-jokes about the OTT ridiculousness of the BSC books and I love it.

Vae Victis (33405 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Marcus Flavius Aquila/Esca Mac Cunoval
Characters: Marcus Flavius Aquila, Esca Mac Cunoval
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Alternate Universe - Historical, Alternate Universe - Ancient Greece & Rome, Alternate Universe - Etruscans, Alternate Universe - Gaul, Etruscans, Gauls, War, Romance, First Time, Additional Warnings Apply
Summary:

War looms on the horizon as Marcus' homeland of Etruria is faced with the unreasoning demands of the Gauls, a vicious, deadly foe. Young and lonely, Marcus begins a tentative friendship -- a friendship that could become something more -- with Esca, a prince of the Gauls. But the differences of the two nations cannot be ignored, and both Marcus and Esca must choose between the needs of their peoples and the desires of their hearts.


True story: I actually had a freshman seminar on the Etruscans with Larissa Bonfante, mumblety-mumble years ago. The Etruscans are awesome, and so is this story.

Also contains gorgeous artwork by [livejournal.com profile] alby_mangroves!
mayhap: straw goat drinking coffee with text yule goat (yule goat)
Am in the middle of drafting my Dear Yuletide Author letter. In a way I find this part much harder to write than my eventual actual story—I'm so terrible about writing directly about what it is that I enjoy, as opposed to flailing incoherently in its general direction and hitting kudos/like/reblog/5-stars/etc as hard and enthusiastically as I can. This is a failing of mine that I should work on.

I have barely made a dent in narrowing down possible offers. I'm thinking of combining this with a project to create master list of all the fandoms I plan to read in Yuletide this year, for the benefit a hypothetical potential author who might a.) want to write a crossover b.) with a certified Yuletide-rare fandom that c.) their recipient (i.e., me) is actually familiar with. Is this a good idea, does any one think? I hasten to iterate that I'm not demanding any crossovers with anything. I mostly just like making lists and also procrastinating.
mayhap: sketchy Harry in red with text Gryffindor (gryffindor)
Daniel Radcliffe is so precious and clever and wee in his turn on Q.I.! I am sort of but actually not really distracted from waiting for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide to open.

mayhap: flying raven with text argent, raven volant (raven volant)
My [livejournal.com profile] yuletide santa is nothing short of a magician, I swear! They took two of my requests, complete with my daft squicky beloved pairings, and crossed them over in a work of sheer fucking genius that is lush, evocative, sensual, gorgeously characterized, everything.

I'm just incredibly touched by the extent to which someone went to the effort, not merely to write a story for me, but to write a story so completely and utterly tailored to be everything that I adore. You are simply amazing, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Go and read!

The Language of Birds
R. The Once and Future King by T.H. White/Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke.
All magicians lie, and the Raven King, like Merlyn, is fond of tall tales and impossible deeds.

I have read so much other goodfic in the car on the way home, and I've not got through a fourth of my tabs, much less go back and compose feedback and compile recs! Merry [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, all!

mayhap: Hobbes the tiger has an idea (idea!)
I went in to have my hair cut and now my eyebrows are gone.

Actually, they're swoopy and sort of pretty and definitely what I'm supposed to want my eyebrows to look like, I think, but I liked them before. They were pretty! In a kind of manly sort of way! Oh well.

This week's daddy-daughter film experience was Superman Returns, although we ended up seeing it yesterday as opposed to over the actual weekend because during the actual weekend we were doing ... something. I think. I forget.

I thought it was extremely adequate and very, very, very pretty. During the slower moments I distracted myself with lovely crossover crack on the basis of the fact that Brandon Routh's Clark Kent looks strikingly similar to Shirota Yuu's Tezuka what with the way he parts his hair and the glasses and all and you know, it would explain a lot of things! Or maybe I just have a one-track mind.

I suck so much (ha ha ha) because I ended up asking for an extension to June on my Worple/Sanguini fic for [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies because I was writing Prince of Tennis fic instead. I am, like, the living recapitulation of that stupid kerfuffle from a month ago where Tenipuri is killing Harry Potter.

But that is not important. What is important is that everyone who has the vaguest ability to comprehend it go and read [livejournal.com profile] marksykins's BSC/Tenipuri AU this very minute. It is the two things that have been making me ridiculously happy, combined, and it is genius.

Also, tonight is the finals of the Scripps national spelling bee, which my mom and I will be watching. And if no one else writes the Akeelah and the Bee OT3 fic, I may have to do it.

EDIT: I am totally rooting for the homeschooled boy. Because, a.) homeschoolers and former homeschoolers represent, and b.) he looks eerily like wee![livejournal.com profile] satyadasa.

mayhap: young crowned girl with text ordinary (the ordinary princess)
What do you mean, it's not Easter? It's Orthodox Easter, so there! It's not just that I'm a week late or anything. *polishes halo*

For [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle, two misplaced Easter eggs. Jesus/Mary Magdalene. 100 words each. G. Please to not be clicking if you would be offended, or come crying to me if you are, thanks muchly!

Oh, and not anything to do with the Da Vinci Code, either.

mayhap: Holmes and Watson with text whatever remains however improbable (however improbable)
Because I have it and I think that the rest of you should share in my glee and also because it is very short and takes very little typing, because I am lazy.

This was written for "A Tribute to Sherlock Holmes on the Occasion of his 100th Birthday", a BBC radio programme broadcast on 8 January 1954.

The Young Lord Peter Consults Sherlock Holmes )

This text was reprinted in Sayers on Holmes, which has the somewhat dubious distinction of being the slenderest volume I own. However, as I learned absolutely everything I know about scholarly writing from reading all this fabulous Holmesian scholarship at the tender age of 12, and I got it basically for free in Amazon's 4-for-3 promotion, it was well worth it.

Just as I was pondering the logistics of a Sherlock Holmes/Lord Peter Wimsey crossover for [livejournal.com profile] nagasvoice, I discover that it's already been done.

By Dorothy L. Sayers, no less.

Although $8 for a book just 66 pages long is not exactly cheap, you can see why I'm simply going to have to have this book.

I should have called this the New Years Cracktastathon, because apparently, that is what it is.

Mary Anne and the Original Problem Children, written for [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle, who is just that awesome
Baby-Sitters Club/Bible crossover. G. 4,112 words.
Janine's extra-credit time machine lands Mary Anne with a pair of interesting sitting charges: Cain and Abel. Yes. Seriously.

Kristy insisted that I write up this sitting job even though the only people here who can read this are me, her and Janine, and I already told them everything that happened. )

If you enjoyed this complete and utter insanity, consider requesting some of your own.
