January 1! So I can reveal that for Yuletide I wrote "Elinor & Marianne," a Sleepy Hollow story! The summary: “Here’s what I figure,” Abbie said. “You need to catch up to modern culture. But you should catch up in stages. By degrees. Even Mark Twain was a little too far ahead for you, so let’s take it back a step. We’ll start you off with what’s closest to your time period, and move forward a few decades at a time until you’re back in the groove.”

So she starts Ichabod with a novel Corbin gave her long ago: Sense & Sensibility.


Had great fun writing this and hope to do a bit more in this fandom. (With Victor Garber appearing as Ichabod's father, I would guess this is inevitable.)

Also, I now know that my lovely Orphan Black story, "Duplicity," was written by the terrific Barometry. Thank you, Barometry!

As for the 2013 fic year in review: The number of stories is fewer than ever - but one of those stories was 162K words, so I actually wrote a lot: Fic of 2013 )

Not one but two new fics for your perusal, should they interest:

"Death Before Dusk", an Elementary fic, Sherlock/Joan, and yet not as romantic as you might be thinking. 15K words. The synopsis --

The bad news: In 111 days, an asteroid will strike the Earth in a cataclysm that promises to destroy human civilization as we know it.

The good news: There's been a murder.


Also, I recently posted "Born To Rule", which is not so much a sequel to my XMFC AU story "Anarchy in the UK" as it is a brief, 5K coda, shamelessly written/posted to coincide with the birth of Wills & Kate's kid. The AITUK universe should get to have royal babies too, right?

Movies I have seen and liked: "The Great Gatsby" (so sue me, I thought the acting was amazing and made up for some extra Luhrmann); "The Heat" (freakin' hilarious); "Pacific Rim" (my friend Steph and I are considering costuming as jaeger pilots for Halloween) and "The Bling Ring" (sort of style over substance, but I think that's the point?) Still hoping to check out "The Wolverine" and "World War Z."

Hi there! I didn't die. I just took my time writing a very, very long fic -- the longest I ever wrote -- which you can now read in its entirety at the AO3:

"Anarchy in the UK"

Synopsis: "Good God, Erik thought. The Prince of Wales is gay."

Charles lives in the unceasing glare of the public spotlight, yet keeps his sexual orientation a closely held secret, afraid he could lose his throne and force his deeply troubled younger sister into a role that would crush her. Erik, journalist and world traveler, has been a loner most of his life; he has little patience for closet cases. But a chance meeting in Kenya brings these two opposites together and sets in motion a love affair that will challenge the British monarchy -- and force them both to change forever.

Many thanks due to [profile] rheanna27 for Britpicking above and beyond the call of duty on that one.

In other fannish news, I love "Elementary" with wild desperate love and expect to write it next.
