damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra. (Look at this place.)
Late to the party, because I'm pretty much late to every party, but! I wrote fewer fics this year than last year, and yet more total words, because:

The Silver Bracelet (40425 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sinbad (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gunnar/Sinbad
Characters: Gunnar (Sinbad), Sinbad (Sinbad), Cook (Sinbad), Nala (Sinbad), Rina (Sinbad), Anwar (Sinbad), Tiger (Sinbad)
Additional Tags: Reunions, Treasure Hunting, Unreliable Narrator, Misunderstandings, Gods, Ghosts, Curses, Original Female Character(s) - Freeform
Summary: It was strange, to be back in Basra. Post-canon: the crew of the Providence goes on a new adventure.

My assignment fic for [personal profile] movies_michelle, after very-much-needed edits, cracked 40k words! She asked for Gunnar/Sinbad and found family, and suggested the possibility of a reunion with Nala, and I grabbed all three of those things and SPRINTED INTO THE WILDS with them for forty thousand completely ridiculous words. [personal profile] movies_michelle was very gracious about her surprise novel, and even left me a comment when she was only partway through, just so I'd know she didn't hate it. ♥ She and I both only just watched Sinbad this year, and I'm really glad I offered it, because this story was great fun to write!

I also had time for a single treat:

a lonely hunter (1630 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Twisted Princess (Disney Fanart)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Snow White (Twisted Disney Princesses - Jeftoon01)
Additional Tags: Non-Graphic Violence, Body Horror, Unreliable Narrator, Yuletide Treat
Summary: The huntsman is kind to Snow White, in the forest.

Twisted Princesses is rapidly becoming one of my favorite treating fandoms; I'm not confident enough in my ability to write horror on command to actually offer it, but when I get an idea that I think I can pull off, I love to write it. Maybe if I do it enough, I'll actually get good at darkfic someday!

As it turns out, the incredibly generous [archiveofourown.org profile] Niki wrote me BOTH my main gift, Home, and my fabulous Snow White and the Huntsman treat, Mirrored; and [archiveofourown.org profile] russian_blue wrote me One Spark, about Lola on the roof. I am so pleased and amazed that they chose to take the time to write me such wonderful stories! TELL ME WHAT I DID TO DESERVE THIS SO I CAN DO IT AGAIN.

Home (1465 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 4/4
Fandom: Banlieue 13 (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Leïto/Damien Tomaso
Characters: Lola (Banlieue 13), Leïto (Banlieue 13), Damien Tomaso
Additional Tags: Post-Movie(s), Addiction, Friendship, Family
Summary: Lola has never been a victim, she has always been a survivor.

My main gift, and I ADORE it - somehow it manages to span the space between the movies, B13:U, and then after B13:U in 1400 words, and it is LOLA and LEÏTO and DAMIEN and HELP I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH. Lola and Leïto struggle with Lola's addiction and get a little help from Damien, and then B13:U happens. And the fourth chapter is only three sentences long but it's ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN. ♥ Anon, whoever you are, this is everything I asked for and you should feel AMAZING.

One Spark (430 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Banlieue 13 (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Lola (Banlieue 13), Leïto (Banlieue 13)
Summary: Lola on the roof.

One of the two marvelous treats that people chose to write for me even though they didn't have to because Yuletide is just beautiful that way. :D Short but totally perfect, a fantastic achy look at Lola on that roof with a gas can and a match. LOLA. HEARTS IN MY EYES.

Mirrored (753 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Snow White (Snow White and the Huntsman), Ravenna (Snow White and the Huntsman)
Additional Tags: Introspection
Summary: Snow White used to imagine conversions she might have with the Queen.

I love the structure of this one, how the narrative is essentially mirrored and the ways in which Snow White's and Ravenna's thoughts mirror and don't mirror each other; I lovelovelove Snow White's, how a child's hope turns into resentment and then - because Snow White - into curiosity and even the desire to understand, and I love Ravenna's detachedness, strength and self-deception at the same time. UGH SO AWESOME.

Time keeps passing without telling me it's going to.

Revolution, 2.02-2.08. ) I can't quite make myself stop watching, because a) Charlie and Rachel! and b) a part of me seems to find frothing with hatred cathartic. But, seriously, I hate this show. A lot.

Korra, 2.07-2.14. Herds of teal deer. ) So. Yeah. Some mixed feelings overall.

By contrast, I have almost nothing whatsoever to say about Sleepy Hollow because basically I'm just enjoying the ride. (I haven't seen the most recent ep, I don't think.) Are there plot holes? Sure there are! But the more recent episodes have been much less faily than the first couple, and ABBIE. ABBIE AND JENNY. ICHABOD. CAPTAIN IRVING. The end. *hands*

As far as Agents of SHIELD goes, still watching. ) Possibly I'm too generous! But through the rose-colored glasses of my personal interpretation: still happy.

Not quite on track for NaNo, but close, and if you added in what I've written for my Yuletide story, I'd be ahead. :D
