As it turns out, the lovely and super-speedy pinch hitter who wrote my delightful Jyn/Leia gift Everything Comes Back to You was [archiveofourown.org profile] FreshBrains! My joy on seeing it appear and present-shaking was indescribable, and I'm so lucky they were able to pick me up. :D

As for me, I offered Original Works on a whim and may have panicked a tiny bit upon realizing I'd matched on it ... but panic turned out to be a productive feeling, and I ended up writing:

i have named you queen (listen) (19713 words)
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Princess/Princess
Additional Tags: Political Alliances, Marriage of Convenience, Cultural Differences, Miscommunication
Summary: Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had. Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

[archiveofourown.org profile] chasing_givenchy asked for non-Western princesses and mentioned a) approaching arranged/political marriage with pragmatism, b) characters in situations they aren't entirely prepared for, and c) worldbuilding, machinations, and scheming. And while the practical side of my brain was going OH GOD WHAT DO WE DOOOOOO, my id was all *________*!

I also ended up writing:

In A Bottle (8578 words)
Fandom: Sinbad (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Nala/Rina (Sinbad)
Additional Tags: Marooned, Angry Sex, Fuckbuddies, Communication Failure, Post-Canon
Summary: "If you'd just minded your own business—" "—then you'd still be stuck here—" "But at least it wouldn't be with you!" (Or: Nala's rejoined the crew of the Providence, and Rina's the only one who doesn't seem happy about it. Then she and Nala get trapped on a magical island where there's nothing to do except try to figure each other out, which means maybe they'll finally succeed.)

For [archiveofourown.org profile] Muccamukk! Obviously I went STRAIGHT for the Sinbad requests, because I enjoy writing Sinbad fic SO VERY MUCH, and since I just wrote Sinbad/Gunnar for Yuletide, I figured I'd switch off and write Rina/Nala, and never mind that the last time I wrote Rina/Nala was also for Muccamukk. If you ask for Sinbad, I WILL FIND YOU. EVERY TIME.

Relationships: Dulann/David Martell
Additional Tags: Dubious Science, Alien Technology, Temporary Invisibility, Presumed Dead
Summary: David was—understandably—a little leery of any mission that got described to him as a "milk run", after what had happened with the Valen and the Hand. Post-canon, the continuing adventures of the Liandra and her crew: David goes out of phase, and there's nobody except Dulann who can help him figure it out.

For [archiveofourown.org profile] Mimm! Who had like three different requests I could conceivably have leapt on. But as the person who nominated David/Dulann and was not at all expecting anyone to take me up on it, I was STOKED to see a request appear and immediately determined to make it happen. :D Mimm mentioned an interest in Dulann's abilities and in ghosts, and I've always been firmly convinced that LotR would totally have had an out-of-phase episode eventually, so I combined those things and ran with it! I always manage to forget just how much I love the cast of LotR until I'm writing them. ♥

I totally did not manage to read all the things, but I read a bunch of them and enjoyed them hugely, and am looking forward to this exchange running again! Which the mods say it will. :D

You totally should feel pleased, because the Original Work story was amazing! I've read it twice already :)

oh! the third fic! i haven't seen this subset of b5, but i went to read the fic after the reveals when i found it it's by you, and i kept meaning to say that it was ADORABLE - i loved the old-school sci-fi setup, and david's prickly and kind of denialist pov, and his loneliness after the accident, and the sizzzzzling ust between him and the minbari guy, and the relief of this resolution - just, it was a very very lovely fic.
