Some anonymous joker over at yuletide
needs to lighten up and maybe cut back on the caffeine. Okay, so maybe Leverage
isn't technically a rare fandom anymore. Geez! Can I interest you in some Secondhand Lions?!
Yes, I am going to participate again this year! Last year was a blast, up to and including my last-minute stocking stuffer.
has recced A Feast for Two at the Turquoise Dragon
. Apparently there are A LOT of fangirls who want to read Sam and Castiel interacting over Chinese food---who knew?! (It just makes the reaction---or lack thereof! to Iron and Faith
all the more discouraging. That one was EPIC, darn it!)
This afternoon I got my assignment for the Crossover Exchange, and *that* has me grinning and licking my lips. I volunteered to write in any two of five fandoms (and gave them eight fandoms of my choice to write for). My recipient has six requests, three of which I volunteered, another that I HAVE written in but didn't volunteer, and the remaining two are fandoms I know only from a distance. The minimum length is ONLY 1500 words, which for me---hell, my post about the wedding weekend was longer than that!
The three requests I matched? Are ALL fandoms I requested, too. Shazam! I've already been thinking about scenarios. My recipient doesn't ask for any pairings that make me queasy---some of them are triggering my smirk---there are a few possibilities among their prompts...the *only* thing that marginally annoys me is that he/she has vetoed a specific genre I'm good at---but I'm sure I can find other options.
My fic for COME AS YOU'RE NOT: 2009
is done already, giving me even more of my ample free time to spend on the exchange fic.... This is going to be fun. Yes, it is.
Of course, if I wanted to be REALLY crazy/masochistic, I'd take on NaNoWriMo too---but I don't think I'm *quite* that manic.
