Oh, hello 2016!

Yuletide has come and gone, and this was only the second yuletide I've ever participated in. Usually the holiday season is far far too busy for me to take part, and probably I was too busy to this year, but I really wanted to take part this year so I forced myself to and I'm glad I did. I had an AWESOME yuletide. I somehow ended up with THREE amazing stories:

By the Numbers by Frea_O, a beautifully written and angst-filled post season 1 Dark Matter fic from Five's POV that just makes me eager for the next season

Johnny Jaqobis and the Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day (That Just Might Be Okay in the End) by igrockspock, a funny and extremely in character "how they met" Killjoys story with Dutch and Johnny that could be an actual episode

Little Sister by Eustacia Vye, a lovely little slice of life ficlet that takes place pre-end-of-season 1 Dark Matter fic with content that is not sad but makes me sad knowing what happens

These fics were all super amazing and I feel really spoiled. <3 I totally won yuletide. :D

Reveals have happened so I can share my fic now too. I wrote a thing called New Hampshire, a Sarah/Kyle Terminator: Genisys fic. My recip was pretty much my feels twin and this was only like my 3rd attempt at the story, haha. Once I came up with the idea the thing pretty much wrote itself. I think I'm rather pleased with it in the end.

I'm hoping for 2016 I will write more than 2 fics in the year! I saw the 2015 fic year in review meme going around and was all oh I should do that, then realized I only wrote 2 fics. Not really much to work with there hahaha.

gosh i love arrows.

also watching tv, making icons, writing fic, reading comics, and generally fanning it up.
