I managed five Yuletide stories this year, my assignment and four treats. Not my most prolific year, but pretty damn good, and I'm proud of the stories I wrote.
Assignment: Out of Bounds and Off the Trail
, Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, Abby/Kristy (and ensemble)
Summary: Abby heads up to Shadow Lake for a long weekend of skiing, snowball fights, and hot chocolate. Add in an unrequited crush, two sets of best friends, and a blizzard, and the only thing Abby can think is this: At least we're not being stalked by a failed killer this time.
Treat: (Not a) Survival Group
, Jurassic Park series/Jurassic World series, Lex/Kelly (and ensemble)
Summary: It's not a dinosaur survival group. Not really. It's just that, well, they all survived dinosaurs once. Or twice. Kelly hopes there will never be a third time for any of them.
Treat: No More Crossroads, No More Waiting
, Thunderheart, Ray/Walter, soulmate AU
Summary: The movies got the soulmate thing all wrong.
(I 100% expected carlyinrome
to guess this was me, but she swears she did not.)
Treat: Advance and Retreat
, Avengers Grimm, Sleeping Beauty and Red Riding Hood
Summary: Beauty's magic fails her sometimes. Snow thinks it's high time she learned to fight. Red's the one given the job. No one is happy about this.
(New fandom! I've wanted to write for this for a few years now, and I was thrilled to find another fan.)
Treat: Say Hello to Your Friends (Again and Again and Again)
, Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, Mallory/Jessi (and ensemble)
Summary: When Mary Anne gets married (again), Mallory and Jessi reunite with some old friends. It's not nearly as awkward as Mallory fears.
