Oh, dear, where did 2012 go? I haven't done anything fannish since I posted by 2011 round-up at the start of the year.

It's been a fairly hectic year - workwise, with six teachers on maternity leave and not enough funds to get cover in for all of them and a not-unrelated promotion I didn't really want. In real life, I had a final falling out with my useless landlady, and had to relocate fairly quickly over the summer, and I didn't get a working internet connection back until mid-November, by which time I was drowning in Nanowrimo woes.

All that, of course, means I missed the sign ups for absolutely everything, and currently have no fest fics lined up. I'm waiting for the tsunami of Yuletide pinch hit requests to start, but may well have time on my hands once the holidays start. If anyone needs a beta read or pinch hit after the 14th, let me know.

Despite all of that, I have written more in the last six months than I have in the last three years before that. I decided to take note of some of the writing skills I'd learned in fandom and try my hand at original m/m romance and now I can't stop the words from pouring out. It's wonderful and I'm enjoying every second of it. If anyone wants to see what I'm up to with that, you can find me on DW as [personal profile] amy_raenbow, on LJ as amy_raenbow, on Twitter ([twitter.com profile] amy_raenbow) and, as of yesterday, at Dreamspinner Press, Amazon and All Romance eBooks. Come and squee with me :)

2011 Fic Round-Up

Hurrah, Yuletide reveals have happened and now I can do a (rather short) 2011 Masterlist. First off, however, my thanks to fabrisse for The Hush of Society (Swan Lake) and to highfantastical for My Heart is Like an Apple Tree (Drina series). They were both quiet and thoughtful and lovely and I am very grateful, especially as I know this went out as a fairly late pinch hit.

This has been a fairly light year for me as far as fic writing goes, but I can honestly say that I like everything I've written this year. Most of my fic has been Merlin AUs, with a couple of XM:FC pieces and the usual fun scatter from mixed fests and challenges. I'm linking the AO3 versions, just because I'm lazy and like the share button. Yuletide fics are down the bottom :)

In order of writing...Collapse )

^___^ Yuletide!

I've been very lucky this Yuletide! I got two stories this year, which were very, very different from each other and both very good.

The Hush of Society (1980 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Lebedínoye Ózero | Swan Lake
Rating: Mature
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: OMC/OFC, Odette & Odile
Summary:

A poor woman is given the opportunity for security by ruining the life of another whom she resembles.



This is a retelling of Swan Lake set in nineteenth century Russia and is absolutely gorgeous. It's packed with telling period detail and the narrative keeps twisting around to reveal new twists and layers of appearances.

My Heart Is Like An Apple Tree (1611 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Drina Series - Jean Estoril
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Rose Conway
Summary:

Rose gets her little flat. Several months later, a birthday.



I've been asking hopefully for Drina fic for years and this was everything I'd been hoping for. It's Rose, after the end of the books, finally finding her own happiness and place in the world and it's just warm and happy-making. The authorial voice and tone of this are spot on and lots of characters make fleeting appearances. It really feels like something Jean Estoril/Mabel Esther Allan could have written.

I only wrote two stories myself this year and have happy comments from both recipients. Good Yuletide all round!

How is it Christmas already?

Posted on 2011.12.20 at 02:00
*bats eyelashes* Can anyone do a quick beta for a shortish Remus/Sirius piece? Historical AU and I'm not convinced it works. I can offer Yuletide (or Merlin or HP) Brit-picking in return or can beta most British kidlit and a fair range of Fantasy and SF.

And, on an unrelated note, if you haven't done so yet, go to Google and type in 'Let it snow.' XD

First off, write something you'll enjoy. It's exciting just to have someone who loves the same crazy little fandoms as me, and I want you to have as much fun with it as possible. I'm not going to lay down some crazily precise requests, because I know how much that would throw me off, but I will tell you what I like about the fandoms I chose and hopefully that will give you some ideas.

The season to be jolly: Drina, Chrestomanci, The Silver Branch, Swan LakeCollapse )

Bleurgh. I hate the autumn term - flu followed by sore throat followed by colds followed by oh-my-god-what-the-hell-lurgy-is-that and every day you take off requires you to write hours worth of cover lessons and feel guilty about the extra work you're piling on your colleagues (I'm the only person in my department who isn't brand new, running large parts of the school, or in the midst of massive personal upheaval so I have to just keep plugging along or everything may well fall apart). Haven't seen any Merlin yet, still four or five episodes behind on Doctor Who, grumpy, whiny (did you notice ^_~) and counting the hours until half term.

But I did write something the other week and just kept forgetting to link to it here. Doh. Anyhow, I wrote mad X-Men FC/The Eagle crossover for Lola, because there can never be enough of Charles Xavier in a toga, right?

Wanton in the Air On AO3 | On LJ
(8988 words) by faviconRosie_Rues
Fandom: X-Men: First Class (2011), The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011)
Rating: Explicit
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
Characters: Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr, Raven
Summary:

In which Charles rescues a gladiator from the arena and soon becomes somewhat disconcerted by this handsome new slave and his sharksome grin.
