A meeting with my boss I was super stress about turned into a “my goal is to have you hired full time by the end of the year” meeting.

So that’s a year’s worth of work and stress and panic attacks and anxiety and improvement and projects ... all worth it. After a year of working, I’m close to full-time, at an industry job I really enjoy, which I’m incredibly lucky and fortunate to have.

AND I just got my Yuletide assignment and it’s one of the ones I REALLY hoped I’d get matched on.

Like I’ve spent the last week looking through people’s letters and the fandoms I offered and reading the prompts and ideas and omg omg omg I AM SO EXCITED! : DDDDDDD

Yuletide!

My recipient loves the work I sent them! Woohoo!

So I was sitting around checking my Treats and seeing if people had left comments yet and then I realized ... of course they haven’t yet, everyone is at home with their families.

Me, I’ve been sitting around today calling my family, and playing board games with my boyfriend and roommate. (Noir, and Smash Up, EXCELLENT! : DDDD)

First Christmas away from home. I’m not exactly happy, but I’m not crying either. It was tough earlier, especially with the phone calls, but overall I think I’m doing ok.

Is anyone free this weekend? I am down to the wire on my Yuletide assignment and need a beta. Fic will likely be between 1,000-4,000 words, might be a little longer. I just need someone to make sure I haven’t left in embarrassing typos, the tenses didn’t get mixed up, and it flows coherently. You don’t need to be familiar with the fandom in question.

It’d be easiest if you’re not someone participating in Yuletide this year, since if I got assigned you I need to keep it anonymous.

In the vaguest terms I can manage, I’m writing a fic for a recent American television show. If you’re doing Yuletide this year, and any of your requests match that, safest not to offer to be my beta.

Hello stranger! Happy Yuletide!

Let’s start things off …

I go like, all out for this, people. I have lists. I organize those lists. And then I start pitting fandoms against each other and striking things out. I have spent 2 days turning pages and pages of potential fandoms into a more manageable list.

Currently I have:

14 requests (needs to be narrowed down to 6)
36 offers (needs to be narrowed down to 10, possibly a few more depending on bucket lists)

This does not include the shows I am poised to start watching and the books I am about to start reading before sign-ups.

Edit: oh wait, I have 6 things already slotted into Offer slots, so that means I have 36 things I need to narrow down for the remaining 4 slots, unless I’m doing Bucket Offers.

aunt_zelda: (GarlicIsTheAnswer)

All my noms were accepted and approved!

For a while just one of them had been accepted. Checked again today, all have blue checkmarks next to them. Even the one I feared might be contested and up for debate. Woohoo!

The Guest (2014), Siberia (TV), and Treasure Island (2012)

I’m so happy.

aunt_zelda: (GarlicIsTheAnswer)

I have three spots to fill.

I’ve decided on two of them.

Now I have three things fighting for that final spot.

And I have a giant list of things to watch and 1) see if other people nominate them and if not 2) beg people to nominate them.

Auuuuuughhhhhhhh. *agonizes*

aunt_zelda: (GarlicIsTheAnswer)

And of course, I have way too many things to nominate.

I can only nominate THREE things. (Four characters per property.)

I have 26 things on my list, that I’ve been keeping since last year.

How to narrow things down ...

Hello stranger! Happy Yuletide!

Let’s start things off …

I ship a lot of ships. (Lately my motto’s been “ship all the ships” for most of my fandoms. I can see the potential in almost any ship.) M/M, F/F, F/M, threesomes, moresomes, gen … it’s all good to me. I'm comfortable with a lot of kinks. And I LOVE getting smut as a gift. But I am completely fine with gen if you're not comfortable writing smutty stuff! Don’t worry!
A commitment to the universe and a faithfulness to the characters is what's most important to me.

My LJ activity is ... sporadic. I should update some stuff around here. If you wanna see what I've written in the past, check under the fic tag.
Here is my Ao3 account, which is the much more recent stuff I've written, and also most of what I’m reading. (Also a good way to show you all the kinks I like.)
I'm on tumblr. My updates are random and about many things, but if you wanna get a better sense of who I am and what I’m watching, that’s the place to do it.
I frequently post reviews/detailed rants/liveblogging ramblings about stuff I'm watching, here are those.
And here I am on twitter.


Squicks/Stuff For You To Avoid: watersports, scat, medical play, eye torture, gaslighting, major character death, adultery/cheating, parent/child incest, fridging female characters, demonizing female characters for "getting in the way" of a m/m pairing, Rape As Drama - (I am fine with non-con in a fic so long as it's handled responsibly, not as a clumsy excuse for hurt/comfort later or 'first it was rape then they liked it’), A/B/O verse (I’m fine with it sometimes but only in very specific ways, so probably best to just avoid it for Yuletide).


Stuff I Like/Stuff I Love/Stuff I’d Enjoy Seeing: BDSM, knifeplay, gunkink, threesomes, femdom, FoeYay, Christmas fluff, domestic fluff, genderswap AU (where everything is the same but the characters who were men in canon are women in fic, vice versa), kink negotiation, bandaging someone’s battle wounds, polyamory, couple locked in a room, first time, aftercare, role reversal AU, character exploration*
* You don’t need to include all or even any of these, just listing some things I like so you get a better sense of me.


~*~


Ok, so now onto me talking about the fandoms I’ve requested. Just the fact that you are writing at all for any of these will make me SUPER happy, so don’t worry about trying to follow any prompts I leave or adhering to them. These are just some ideas to get your creativity going, and a way to show you my tastes:

Hello! This is my first Yuletide, so I hope I do this right.

I ship a lot of ships. I'm comfortable with a lot of kinks. I have very few squicks. But I am completely fine with gen if you're not comfortable writing shippy stuff. A commitment to the universe and a faithfulness to the characters is what's most important to me.

My LJ activity is ... sporadic. I should update some stuff around here. If you wanna see what I've written in the past, check under the fic tag.

Did not think we'd get our assignments so soon. Hello, stranger! I will be posting a Dear Writer letter tomorrow, hopefully, Sunday at the latest.
