Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted here.
I wasn't on the computer or online much during the holidays, so I didn't post about the lovely stories I got for Yuletide. There were two (two!) both for Velvet Goldmine, a movie I love past reason.
The first one is the pairing of my heart, Arthur/Curt, and shows them a few years older and in Berlin. It's beautifully written and a perfect take on the two of them:Sound and Vision

: Arthur and Curt in Berlin, December 1989.
The second story is a much more melancholy take on what might have happened to Arthur if he'd failed entirely to achieve his dreams and his night with Curt had never gone further.Not-Returning Time

: Shop boy Arthur Stuart tries to make a proper life for himself, in between surviving and reminiscing about Curt Wild and the dead glam rock scene.
My Yuletide assignment was for Spy, a fun movie I love and think is a lot of fun. My recipient asked for Susan's back story, so my muse decided it would turn a wacky comedy into a meditation on self-esteem and fighting sexism. With some female ass-kicking thrown in.A (Not So) Well-Behaved Woman
: Spy (2015)Summary
: Susan's mother raises her to be a nice, neat, well-behaved girl... Or how Susan Cooper learned how to be the spy she was always meant to be.
One of my favourite Yuletide stories was this Spy story that's much more in keeping with the wacky tone of the movie. It's funny and filthy and just a little bit touching.Every Single Holiday

My writing wrap up is going to be dead easy this year. The first part of the year was all martial arts all the time, and then there were months of relaxing because I was knackered. Then in the fall, the Cap Stucky fandom hit me like a truck. So apart from Yuletide, the only other fic I finished was the Stucky one from the end of the year. (I've got two half-finished stories on the hard drive, one Pros and one Take That, but the whole Stucky thing hit me hard in the fall and shorted out all other writing.)The Altar Boy Act
Fandom: Captain America (Movies)
Relationships: James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers
Summary: Stark thinks Steve is a prude. Bucky knows better.
My total word count for the year was a paltry 3393. But that's okay. I've already got that more than beat for the new year. I'm awaiting a beta on 23,000 words of the first two stories in a Stucky series, and have already started the final story. That one looks like it's going to hit at least 10,000 words.
A belated Happy New Year, everyone!
