This Yule I wrote Family of Blood and Memories, an October Daye fanfic about... familial relationships around Toby, such as they are. This is a topic which probably deserves a longer fic - several longer fics, but at least about the Luidaeg I don't think I could have written more than I did - a drabble-sized bit was hard enough. I mean. It's the Luidaeg.

(I just wondered about a possibility of a HL crossover and her meeting with Methos. But among other things it would need careful work with mythologies: what are the Immortals in the world with fairies?)

 Posted a bunch of my Takarazuka fanfics from last year on AO3. Probably will post newer ones there too. As they're in Russian, there's not much  sense in it except for completeness' sake. But in a way I am trying to be unsocial in fandom - blog things no matter whether anyone is interested in reading them, write fics and not post them/not expect feedback, things like that.

(I did go to Yuletide this year, but even though I have been doing Yuletides forever, I am pretty unsocial there - I just write a fic, that's all. Well, I managed a couple of fics a couple of years)

Also, I think I've been affected by the season - I don't know the right word; I am not depressed but I kind of feel like shit, tired most of the time and not feeling much pleasure in anything in particular. Always feeling I need to catch up with something, not sure what. This is a difficult year.

This year I wrote a Scarlet Pimpernel fic - The Truth of Her Face, Chauvelin and some Marguerite, pre-books.

... I used Yuletide to write something I've been pondering for ages: Chauvelin's attitude to, well, revolution. Though of course I could have done more and better... Maybe it will be enough of a push to write more about ScaPim, which I love despite all its faults (well, I have tons of doubts about Sir Percy Hits Back, and I actually haven't read the last half of books because it was a bit too much for me. But I love the characters)

So I went and checked which of my stories have most hits on AO3. I'll list a top 5 here for my amusement (there's only 16 stories anyway, most of them Yuletide):

the leader is my Yuletide-2009 Juuni Kokki story with 839 hits - Tea, kirin and change

the second is last year's Miss Pym Disposes Yulefic with 343 hits - Reemergence

the third is not actually mine - it's my friend's Vorkosigan fic about Donna/Dono which I translated into English, and it has 297 hits - Man in the Mirror

the fourth is my fic for DWJ's Derkholm series written for Yuletide 2010 and it has 260 hits - Girls' Night In

and the fifth, with 183 hits, is a YuleMadness 2009 drabble for Evgeny Onegin - He Went Away

... this all sounds like _a lot_ of hits. Especially for the Juuni Kokki one.

For Yuletide I wrote a Miss Pym Disposes fanfic called Reemergence.

It is quite possibly underresearched, luckily betaed at the last moment (thanks to helpful Yuletide person Trialia), brought me even more doubts about my writing abilities than usual - but was possibly the most interesting and sort of personally timely thing I ever did for Yuletide. Thanks to my recipient Kinetikatrue for giving me the chance to write this.
