Xaphania goes around shutting windows and does a lot of reflecty like things, and it's Xaphania. So it's awesome. And Nebby wrote it. So it's double awesome. :)

New Skies (520 words) by faviconantarctic

There is the fox, and hurty-missing and FRENCH, and it's probably my favourite thing I've received this year.

Now onto what I wrote!

First my mainfic.

A Brief History of the Witches and Their Culture (8068 words)
Fandom: His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
Characters: Serafina Pekkala, Kaisa, Ruta Skadi, Farder Coram, Lord Asriel, Sergi

A series of events that explore the history and culture of the Lapland and Latvian Witch Clans. It's very etymology-dense, so there is a companion etymology guide that can be found here

I laboured so intensely on this fic. And Neb was my beta and I seriously couldn't have done it without her. I did mountains of etymology research, and picking out just the right name [aside: neb, if I drove you crazy with that, I'm sorry], followed by writing this story, which I called my 'dead carp' story because there were times when I was frustrated with it and it wasn't a pretty minnow or koi fic that was going to get ninemillion comments, and it was looong, and people don't read longfics, especially ones that start off and rely heavily on original characters. All of my fears went out the window when the recipient not only loved the fic, but loved the etymology guide that I made just for the fic as well. It is also the first fic in the AO3 archive to feature Ruta Skadi. Of all the HDM prompts I could have been assigned, I am very pleased I was assigned this one.

Followed by all the pinch-hits/gifts:

Lilo All Growed Up (164 words)
Fandom: Lilo & Stitch (2002)
A drabbleish for spoke because Lilo and Stitch cannot help but be awesome, and spoke totes understands this.

Intrepid Journalist Rachel Maddow Meets A Very Modern [And Political] Sleeping Beauty (1671 words)
Fandom: Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms, Pundit RPF
Characters: Rachel Maddow, Princess Aurora, Narrator, Sleeping Beauty aka Briar Rose

In Far Far Away, the Princess goes missing and Rachel Maddow investigates. A modern take on Sleeping Beauty, with a few ... twists. The first twist being Rachel Maddow.

It's whimsical and awesome. :D

A Trans Look At A Moz Song (1046 words)
Fandom: Swords (Morrissey Album), Morrissey (Musician)
Characters: the good looking man about town, Narrator

When you go home at night, and peel back your layers, what is underneath? Is your flesh a reflection of your layers? I wish I could gaze on it, I wish I could wear it as my own. I wish I could lie with it, with you, that we could both be men about town.

For raedbard. <3 you, nothing more, nothing less.

Hashtag (1207 words)
Fandom: Webcomics (Creators) RPF
Rating: Mature
Characters: Joey Comeau, Emily Horne, Ryan North

An innocent twitter #hashtag sets of a sequence of events that leads to quite the interesting party.

So, this was a pinch-hit that five hours later hadn't been claimed. And I looked it over, realised I read A Softer World, and figured I'd give it a go. And thus this fic was born. [Also? I believe this is the first time I've ever done RPS. And the person who betaed this for me *knows* the people involved. It was a level of odd I'm not sure I want to do again - unless someone knows TWW cast. And then I will be a puddle of squee and unable to do anything].

Joshua Donovan Does 'Secret Santa' (1075 words)
Fandom: Warehouse 13
Characters: Artie Nielsen, Joshua Donovan, Claudia Donovan

Joshua talks us though the events of 2.13 - Secret Santa

You have to have seen the episode to really understand what's happening in this fic, since it's the episode as told through Joshua's pov.
