So being a disorganised person, I did not do things correctly at Yuletide last year (I still posted a fic, don't worry, I'm not terrible, but it was not timely), so here is the NYR fic I have written in order to redeem myself.

The source canon can be found here and is a small and lovely thing you might enjoy regardless of whether you read my fic or not. Featuring mermaids, women in love, and science.

Also, another thing I wrote one time! When I haven't the attention span for longer fiction, I write rhyming drivel.

So I haven't been around here in a while. A combination of super busy, and super lazy, and just generally lurking. But in the meantime, I read a lot of books, and more importantly here, wrote a fic!

It's a pretty trashy piece of Raven Cycle smut, but it is also the first piece of explicit writing I have ever written (what can I say, these boys were just asking for an ill-advised sexual encounter), so that was an adventure.

 So the fantastic [personal profile] argentumlupine podficced one of my fics! This is the first time someone's done this for me, and it's really exciting to hear my words in somebody else's voice. Also, it is exciting when the characters I'm writing have vaguely appropriate accents, rather than the Australian accent that is happening in my head while I write.

So, if podfic is your thing, and Carmilla (the web series) is also your thing, it is here for your listening pleasure. The original is linked at the podfic, in case podfic is not your thing, or you want to leave me feedback.

In other news, I am writing fic for [community profile] pt_lightning , because now I am excited by the idea of podfic, and also because without something to write for very little gets written with me.

In other other news, I am in the middle of reading a long and plotty Star Trek fic, Leave No Soul Behind. It involves an AU wherein Spock and Kirk (and assorted others, but yes, this is shippy fic) are space ambulance officers. I have a RL friend who is very emotionally invested in this fic, and it is indeed well-written and readable, but being only halfway through I can't really speak for the emotional impact yet.

Happy somewhat-late New Year to all you people!

A lot of people seem to do New Year's Resolution type posts at this time of year, but this is not really my thing. Although, I have seen some fun reading challenges around, and the fandom snowflake thing, so I do intend to do certain things in the new year. For the sake of accountability, it is worth posting here that I am in the middle of writing a silly university AU Attack on Titan fic. Aside from Yuletide, I am shockingly bad at finishing things, so maybe this will help.

(Speaking of, does anyone have any fanfic challenges or exchanges they want to recommend or promote to me? I like the feeling of actually finishing and uploading fic.)

And now we are on to Yuletide, time for my shockingly late reveal post!

I wrote three fics this year, which is more than any of the other times I've participated.

Another Opportunity (2903 words) by Alasse_Irena
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Ancient History RPF
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Hannibal Barca, Scipio Africanus
Additional Tags: Reincarnation
Summary: In which it takes several lifetimes for Hannibal and Scipio to arrange a dinner date. Reincarnation AU.

This was my actual assignment. It was a great deal of fun to write, and I did a tonne more research than was strictly necessary, and I was very anxious when I uploaded it, but my recipient seems to have liked it a lot, and so do other people, so now I get to feel proud and relieved.

Having made my last minute edits to that one about twelve hours before the collection opened on Christmas Day, I thought it might be fun to spend the remaining time fulfilling a few other prompts. I'd had good intentions of writing more than one fic this year, and I am very surprised to say, considering the twelve hours (during which I also slept some), that I succeeded.

This next one was for a RL friend who, hilariously, does not yet seem to have realised that it was me who wrote it for her, even though before I did I watched the last ten episodes or so while on IM with her. It'll hit her eventually. Or I'll have to tell her.

if you catch me eating eyeballs (1124 words) by Alasse_Irena
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Carmilla (Web Series)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: LaFontaine (Carmilla Web Series), Lola Perry
Additional Tags: Friendship, Misses Clause Challenge
Summary: Perry considers nearly every event in her life to be LaFontaine’s fault. This explains how someone so determined to be normal ended up at an education institution renowned for weirdness.

And finally:

The Muse's First Job (1312 words) by Alasse_Irena
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: @WorstMuse
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Worst Muse (@WorstMuse), Original Character
Summary: In which Worst Muse inspires a struggling author.

I made a post a little while ago, before reveals, where I recommended the entire @WorstMuse category to people. This was a slightly awkward thing to do, as it included my own fic, but I wasn't allowed to tell anyone yet. So, consider that recommendation to refer to all the other fic in this fandom. For some reason it turned out to be an absolute gem of a fandom.

It has occurred to me that it's going to take me a while to go through all the Yuletide fic and make a complete list of recs, so I'm posting the start of it now. 

Ten recs, in various fandoms )

So there you go. As you can see by "Ghost Soup", I'm up to the letter G. This could take a while, but I will be finished eventually. By the time next year's archive goes live. Or something.

In other news, I wrote a fic:

Pieces Missing

Dance Academy. After series two. So spoilers.

And received two, both for Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Boys:

Prelude in BMW
In Which Ronan Mocks Gansey After Catching Him in a Private Moment

All in all, I consider my first Yuletide a great success.
