Yuletide has come and gone for another year. I'm going to be a while longer slogging through the backlog of posted fic, though, because the Dread God Real Life has been very active lately, but here, have my reveal and a few recs.

I wrote Automotive Testing Procedures in the Young Wizards fandom. I'm pretty sure it was an easy guess for anyone who cared to take a swing at it, since my affection for Kit and Ronan and penchant for pretentious titles are dead giveaway tells in Young Wizards. I also received fic in Young Wizards, Remaking, a wonderful little slice of Tom/Carl that was exactly what I was hoping for when I asked someone to write me the fic their heart desired.


2 Broke Girls

The Rat in the Hat. Max/Johnny, Caroline, Oleg. This is totally the show I wanted 2 Broke Girls to be; it's got interesting urbanite side-characters, Max and Caroline kicking ass in their own special ways while being totally supportive of each other, and relationships that stumble, faceplant, and get back up to try again.
“You’re kind of a bitch,” says Johnny at last, his gaze turning to Caroline, though not without a small trace of reverence. “I thought you were all ponies and butterfly philanthropy.”

Caroline smiles widely. “Once,” she says, “Daddy and I funded this project that helped elementary school students track the progress of migrating Monarchs. And afterwards, the children partnered with a professional ballet company to choreograph the movements into new commissioned stage work. It was way awesome, I love butterflies.”


Cosmo. Max/Caroline. Max makes Caroline Cosmopolitan cupcakes for her birthday. Makes your teeth ache with sweetness, but there's a nice little witty alcoholic bite there too.

“So there’s actual alcohol in these?” Caroline asked, staring at the cupcake.

“Yep. Found the recipe online. I just Googled ‘ridiculous crap Paris Hilton would have at her birthday party’."

22 Short Fics About Abed. Marvelous, Glenn Gould-inspired look at Abed at different points in his life. Very mood-whiplash-y, but very, very good.
This part of the cemetery is quiet, far away the ceremony just wrapping up on the other side, empty except for a pale woman in black. She smiles when she sees him. “Nice bowtie.”

“I know you’re not real,” he says. She’s quiet as he walks towards her. “Occasional breaks with traditional views of reality aside, I’m not crazy. You’re just a way I can visualize what is happening.”

“Does that make this any less meaningful?” Death asks.

Abed cocks his head. “I don’t think so. I didn’t really travel to the North Pole, but I still learned the meaning of Christmas. Just because you are the intellectual property of Vertigo doesn’t mean I can’t appropriate you.”

When she smiles, even Abed can understand what he means. Neil Gaiman made a good character.


Extended Options in Twosomes. SOMEONE WROTE THE AWESOME "ABED AND ANNIE START HOOKING UP THROUGH ROLEPLAY AND TROY FEELS SAD AND CONFUSED AND THEN THEY FIX IT" STORY!!! Now I don't have to! YAY!
"Something weird is happening between you and Abed," Troy announced to Annie as he watched her sort through the mail. She always seemed really concerned about getting stuff from Bill. "His Inspector Spacetime impersonation has gotten a lot sexier and distant lately, which doesn't make sense since he's playing the Fourth Inspector from the Golden Era, not one of the Inspectors after the reboot. It's confusing my version of Constable Reggie."

Newsflesh

Carrying the Banner. Wee!George has her own personal moment of realization that things in the world are Not Right, and decides what she's going to do about it.
"Doesn't anyone ever tell the truth?"

"I don't know, George," Shaun said, his voice quiet. He nodded in the direction of the Wall. "But I think maybe they did."


Jumping and Dressage: The Blog of Rebecca Ryman. Exactly what it says on the tin. The entries are inane and overly-serious and very occasionally petulant, and for this reason it broke my goddamn heart. This is one occasion when better writing would have made for a worse story.
I did decide not to go to the Republican Convention next week. It would be pretty cool to be there when Dad is maybe made the official candidate, but there’s so much to do for school and college coming up and... Okay, you guys know me better than that. I just really couldn’t stand leaving the horses for that long.
