Our Christmas was Star Wars and our New Year was Man from UNCLE, so I have had a lovely shiny fast-moving holiday season! :D

As it turns out, I received the lovely Serendipity (25k Irulan/Chani AU! BE STILL MY HEART) from [archiveofourown.org profile] Tamoline! I have no idea what I did to deserve such a tremendous gift, but it's everything I could possibly have hoped for and then some. ♥ And! My ecstatically wonderful Hellboy OT3 gift, some bright equation, was the work of none other than [archiveofourown.org profile] Liviapenn, which I was not expecting AT ALL. (I regret absolutely none of my comment's effusiveness, but I do feel a little silly. Like, of course it was great, it was Liviapenn.)

And! I wrote:

The Sword in the Stone (14148 words) by Damkianna
Fandom: Crusade
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dureena Nafeel, Matthew Gideon, Galen (Crusade), Sarah Chambers, John Matheson, Max Eilerson, Original Characters
Additional Tags: Alien Technology, Psychic Violence, Post-Canon, End of the World
Summary: Lieutenant Matheson had a headache. Post-canon: the crew of the Excalibur discovers a magic sword, Galen is cryptic, and Dureena has a lot of feelings.

I offered Crusade COMPLETELY on a whim, having had something of a B5 renaissance this year, and lucked out by matching to [archiveofourown.org profile] ArisTGD, who had an inspiring but also extremely flexible prompt about Dureena, Galen, and a sword. :D The more I thought about this one, the more I wanted to make kind of an episode out of it; and I did my best to pack it full of JMS-y themes (religion! ends and beginnings! weighing costs and making choices!). It was a delight to write and a great excuse to rewatch the show (again), and basically I'm just very lucky with my assignments. \o/ MAN YULETIDE IS AWESOME.

And then! I also wrote four treats, in The Bone Key - Sarah Monette, Donovan's Reef (1963), Roundtable Rival - Lindsey Stirling (music video), Veritas: The Quest. )

This Yuletide was so fantastic—and there are so many stories I still haven't read, augh!
