Hello 2017!  Happy New Year!

With the new year, we get the Yuletide reveals!

Let's being with the awesome person who wrote my gift.

This endless life (of sorrow and joy) (1599 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Waterfall
Fandom: Sagnet om Lysets rike | The Legend of the Realm of Light - Margit Sandemo
Rating: Gen Warnings: No warnings
Summary: Móri falls asleep in 1746 and wakes up in 1995. Even with the help of good friends it's a lot to get used to, especially when all he wants to do is find his son and go home.

Just so you know, this story has been stuck in my head since I read it for the first time. I seem to have got what I truly wanted!

And of course I did write something as well. An old staple fandom, Figure Skating RPF. This time I wrote gen.

Ready to Suffer, Ready to Hope (3911 words)
Fandom: Figure Skating RPF
Rating: Gen
Warnings: No Warnings
Summary:Five times Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje didn't cuddle and one time they did.

Baby's first five times fic! I've never written a five times fic and never really had an idea for one but when I read the assignment, a five times fic was the first thing that popped into my mind. I had loads of fun writing this.

Happy New Year!

And it's time for Yuletide reveals!!

And I wrote:

and these lips, I just can’t hold back for (2188 words) for linaerys
Fandom: Magic Mike XXL
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: None
Characters: Rome, Paris, Mike, Big Dick Richie, Tarzan
Pairings: Rome/Paris
Summary: While attending Big Dick Richie’s wedding as Mike's plus one, Rome sees Paris and reminisces about when they first met.

Whoo, my first femslash in years! Not that I've written a lot of femslash but this was a lot of fun to write. It was kind of a pleasant surprise to get a femslash prompt from this fandom which is full of hunky guys who like to take their clothes off.

And a big shout out to Shoshanna Gold for writing me A Touchable Dream.

Interestingly enough, I've more job-related stuff to write about. I've also applied for umpteenth time for a job at the National Archives. It was always a total long-shot since it's a management position. The director of the National Archives seems to be stepping up his game with sending out information to the applicants. So yesterday I got an email with the number of applicants and their names. And therefore I know right away that I totally shouldn't get my hope up because among the applicants is the person who currently has this position (so I'm guessing this is like a re-organization thing) and a lady whose been working there for years and has a PhD in archival sciences (and she taught a course on archives back when I studied history).

50 questions - a meme )

I can tell you that, despite my deadlines, today was dedicated to the Glee Finale. I cried, I laughted. I wrote about it here. I also participated in a thing on tumblr and wrote about Glee and the fandom here.

And for the people who liked Glee when it began but stopped watching, you should check out the first half of the finale (at least).

2014, baby!

Happy New Year, folks!

I hope the new year will treat you all well.

And since it's the 1st of January, it means it's time for Yuletide reveals.

The story I wrote to fulfill my assignment:

Impression (3211 words) for alianora
Fandom: Struck by Lightning
Rating: General Audience
Warnings: Canonical character death
Characters: April Adams, Sheryl Phillips, Claire Mathews, Nicholas Forbes, Original Male Character
Summary: Even long after his death, Carson is still present in the lives of the people who knew him.

And because I'm crazy and the prompt was too good to resist, I wrote a treat (IN ICELANDIC).

Allskonar fyrir aumingja (606 words) for Naraht
Fandom: Gnarr
Rating: General Audience
Warnings: Political crack
Characters: Original Animal Character, Jón Gnarr
Summary: Besti flokkurinn stendur við öll sín kosningaloforð.

The recipient has encouraged me to do a translation and I might to do so.

And a shout-out to kaydeefalls ([personal profile] kaydeefalls) for writing my gift fic: in the religion of the insecure (Queer As Folk UK - Teen Audience).

Let us rejoice in the fact I'm not going to talk about work in this entry. Except if I had figured it out faster that I needed hot yoga to get some of the work-related tension out of my body.

I met up with [personal profile] write_light yesterday. He has been traveling around Iceland with his husband. I showed them around Reykjavík a bit (and Seltjarnarnes :D) and we had dinner. It may sound corny and weird but I love showing my foreign friends around my town. I wish it happened more often (hint: come for a visit - I'll show you around). Also it's always lovely to meet up with great people.

On few of the houses and fences in my neighborhood, there are murals and elaborate graffiti. I actually need to go around take pictures to show you because a lot of it is rather brilliant. But the newest addition to this unconventional gallery of art is a mural on the end house in the row of houses my house is situated in. You can see a picture of the mural here. It was painted this week and the artist started with the eyes and I saw the work at that stage and I knew right away of whom the portrait was. The grandparents of one of my best friends used to live in this house (her cousin owns the house now) and the portrait is of my friend's grandfather, one of the kindest and most loving men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. This is such a fitting tribute to him.

And then I wrote a rambly thing about celebrity relationships and RPF here on tumblr.

I think I'm having some kind of job-related existential crisis. I ended up not bothering filling out an application for that head teacher job at the pre-school near my house and I'm currently coming up with all kinds of excuses not apply for a history teacher position. You know, a similar position to the one I threw a great hissy fit last year when I didn't get it.

What's going on with me?

Am I getting old and afraid of change? Am I thinking "better the devil I know than the devil I don't"?

Maybe it's just getting closer to the "Hildi needs a vacation" time of the year. And I say this despite the three day long weekend I'm currently enjoying and it has been enjoyable, with a party and loads of lazing about.

I think the first order of business to is wish you all a Happy New Year.

The start of the year has been pretty uneventful so far except I had half the day off at work today and that was pretty damn nice.

And now I can finally start to reveal some of the things I've been writing. Yes, apparently I still retain the ability to write even though I was starting to despair that I might have lost it.

So for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide this year I wrote the following:

Putting It in the Hands of the Co-Pilot (1314 words) for Mallory Klohn
Fandom: Queer as Folk (UK)
Rating: Not rated
Warnings: No warnings
Relationship: Stuart Alan Jones/Vince Tyler
Summary: "Where to next?" Stuart asks, looking over at Vince in the passenger seat

I got a rather open prompt so I decided to mull things over a bit and see what wanted to burst forth. I had few ideas and they had all one thing in common, Vince being insecure about their relationship. So what I ended up writing, was really a conversation between Stuart and Vince about exactly that. The basic idea concentrated.

I'm pretty happy with it and I'm surprised how easily it came to me when I started writing it. Normally it takes a while for me to get into writing my Yuletide fics.

And a big thank you to andbless_mybaby for writing me that gorgeous American Horror Story fic, the after hours.

First order of business:

Vacation time!!

Second order of business:

The Happiest of Birthdays to

Johnny Weir!!

I'll forgo a pic spam for now. I might be persuaded to do one at a later time though.

I should really deliver some reviews here. One for SPN 6.09 and one for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. But all I'm going to say is that SPN 6.09 was hilarious and the movie was awesome and I need to see it again soon (I might write more about it at a later point).

I snagged a meme from [livejournal.com profile] sasha_davidovna, a 30 days figure skating meme!

Day 1: How you got into figure skating

Well, I'm not quite certain. I remember watching figure skating at the Winter Olympics 1994 but I think I may have been watching skating earlier. At least I remember Katarina Witt competing and winning and the Carmen production with the two Brians and her. But I think the seed for my obsession was sown when I watched the 1998 Winter Olympics and saw Anissina's and Peizerat's free dance. But figure skating used to be a thing I only watched every four years until this year. And now I have an obsession.

Rest of the meme )

Happy New Year, peeps!

I've been either sleeping or groggy for those roughly 24 hours I've experienced of 2010. Might have something to do with the lack of sleep the night before and it's not a taste of things to come.

Am going to point out that the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide reveals are up.

I wrote a bizarre little fic called Green Grapes. It's a Project Runway RPF fic and features Tim Gunn being bewildered by a suite at the Ritz in Paris. Yeah, I don't know either. I was there just for the ride.

Massive love to Oyster and halotolerant for the fics they wrote for me.

Got a part of my Christmas wish. A full night's sleep. Probably had something to do with the amount of akvavit, red wine and Bénédictine liqueur I consumed.

Then I woke up this morning to two lovely Yuletide fics meant for me.

First I have to mention the awesome A Bit of Fry and Laurie fic I received, featuring Tony and Control and written in script format. Funny and brilliant really. Go forth and read The Lingerie Massacres.

Then I received a fic that was so tailored made for me. Before I knew of such a thing as fandom and way before I knew about RPF, I totally shipped Robbie Williams/Mark Owen from Take That. And now I have a Robbie/Mark story written for me and it hits all kinds of spots for me. Yeah, just read Come On.

I think I'm off to read more Yuletide fic and maybe also enjoy my Christmas loot. And listen to Take That.
