Hello, everyone! Let's talk Yuletide!

First I got the MOST AWESOME GIFT EVER:

On the Plains of the Crimson King (22575 words) by magistera
Chapters: 8/8
Fandom: The Stand - Stephen King
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Fran Goldsmith, Stu Redman, Lucy Swann, Leo Rockway, Jess Rider
Additional Tags: The Stand
Summary:

Eight years after Randall Flagg was defeated, life goes on in the much-reduced circumstances of post-Trips America. But when Fran and Stu's son begins to have disturbing (and all-too-familiar) dreams, it's a sign of change to come.



Listen, if you love The Stand, hurry up and read this. It is perfect, and is exactly what I wanted for this fandom, and I am totally in love with it.


Second, I wrote this story:

Turn and Face the Strange (1838 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Newsflesh Trilogy - Mira Grant
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Georgia Mason/Shaun Mason
Characters: Georgia Mason, Shaun Mason
Additional Tags: Yuletide, Christmas, Post-Canon, Series Spoilers
Summary:

The clone was a 97% match to the old Georgia Mason. Shaun and George notice the 3%.



Newsflesh! Oh my god, I was so glad I got this assignment, since I really wanted to write in this fandom. I had fun with this story, and I think it was well-received! My recipient left me a really awesome comment, and I got some other nice comments and recs. Big thanks to [personal profile] musesfool and [personal profile] bedlamsbard for their awesome and helpful beta. I always think how lucky I am to have friends who can beta for me, and they both really came through this time.

*************

So I am off from work until Monday, which is lucky for me since we're having a big snowstorm here. But I am safe and warm and snowfree, thanks to my upstairs neighbor who has shoveled our driveway and cars three times already today.

God, I am going to have to buy him a bottle of some really good drink, aren't I?

I hope everyone is having a happy new year so far!

Hello! Since I just added you to my reading list, I thought I should say hi. ^_^ I wandered over because a) you wrote Newsflesh fic (and I really liked it) and b) you seem interesting. I hope you don't mind!
