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.

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.

The tags are the best: Fish out of Temporal Water, Marco/Dolg if you squint, The pros and cons of 1995, Family

I fell in love with Móri when I was fourteen. And because Móri is the sort of character he is, while I think I've hardly loved a fictional character as I've loved him (sorry Ron Weasley and Kurt Hummel but it's true), it has always been the quiet sort of love. And my Yuletide gift fic captures Móri so perfectly I could cry. It's based on an alternative prompt but I couldn't be happier about my mystery writer having been inspired by it because they wrote me a perfect gift. Even with lovely nods to the first prompt for that fandom.

This is why I do Yuletide, because it brings me wonderful gems like this fic.

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.

I've been so incredibly lazy these last few days that I haven't even done a happy holiday post, let alone a post to squee about my Yuletide gift.

Well, I probably have to recommend the canon first.

I've been getting into reading M/M romance novels and I've been enjoying quite a few of them. I like stuff with feelings and romance so I keep out of the aggressively kinky stuff but most of the novels I've read, I have enjoyed.

The one that stuck with me the most, I ended up requesting for Yuletide because I simply just wanted more of the main characters who were so lovely.

It's kinky as it's about a D/s relationship but it does a nice twist on what one has gotten used to with that kink and other BDSM related stuff. There's an age disparity but the Dom is younger and inexperienced. And really, from the outside, this pair doesn't look well matched at all. but that's what makes this such an interesting story. I totally fell in love with the main characters.

So I highly recommend For Real by Alexis Hall.

Then go read the fic I got for Yuletide this year.

A Touchable Dream (3096 words) by anonymous
Fandom: For Real - Alexis Hall
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No warnings
Summary: No summary but I love the tags: Insomnia, Established Relationship, French cuisine, Age Difference, D/s, Orgasm Denial

Dear mysterious Yuletide writer,

It‘s Yuletide time again and I feel fine. I hope you're feeling fine as well, dear Yuletide writer. This is the place where I tell you that I'm easy to please and what I want most, is for you, dear mystery writer, to write what you want in the way you want to write. I do have prompts and things like that and I'll tell you a little bit about my likes and dislikes a little further down in the letter. Therefore I hope you're inspired by my prompts and that you'll have great writing experience.

Fandom: Figure Skating RPF
Characters: Johnny Weir, Stéphane Lambiel, Evan Lysacek and Brian Joubert.
Prompt: What I want basically, is something that could be called How Johnny Got His Groove Back. I want a happy Johnny doing fun Johnny things and Stéphane, Evan and Brian being along for the ride or maybe instigating the process of Johnny getting his groove back.

More details )

Fandom: For Real - Alexis Hall
Characters: Laurence Dalziel and Toby Finch
Prompt: A glimpse or two in the future of those two.

More details )

Fandom: Five Dances (2013)
Characters: Chip Daniel, Cynthia, Katie and Theo
Prompt: This movie is so understated and lovely. I just want more about all these characters, more backstory and things like that. Would love to Chip and Theo go and visit Chip's mom like they talk about in the movie.

More details )

Generally, I'm a reader of most genres but romance is probably my favorite, especially the racier sort. I like all kinds of kinky stuff but what I like most of all is realistic sex and plenty of emotion and feelings. Humor is awesome and I love dialogue and communication. I do love my angst and misunderstanding and character-driven plot tension. I love AUs, even some of the most common ones.

While I do read dark fic, I'm quite picky about it and I like to be in control of such reading experiences. So I advise you not to go very dark. As for the dislikes, well, I only have one hard squick and that’s bloodplay. Also, while I do love kinks, I like to have some control over when I read most of the hard kinks. But still I'd rather like that you, the writer, write what’s right for the story, if you know what I mean.

My hope for the person who writes for me, is for them to have a lovely Yuletide experience and write something they love to write. I'm curious to see what I'll receive and I‘m confident that I'll love it to pieces. Should the writer want to ask anyone who know something about what I like and what I might not like, then [personal profile] sarka possesses that knowledge. Also, here's my tumblr in case that will be of help for you.

I wish you the best of Yuletides.

Yours etc.

First post of 2015! Happy New Year! I hope the new year will good for you all.

And since it's the new year, it's of course time for yuletide reveals.

What I wrote:

Shots (3850 words) for nahco3
Fandom: German National Football Team RPF
Rating: Teen and Up Audience
Warnings: None
Characters: Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski, Miroslav Klose
Relationship: Lukas Podolski/Bastian Schweinsteiger
Summary: Bastian Schweinsteiger’s rules of succeeding at your first World Cup. Number One: Play the best goddamn football you possibly can. Number Two: Try not to focus on how much you want to kiss Lukas.

Yeah, those in the know might realize that [profile] lokrur and [personal profile] thesunifollow had a little bit to with the fact that I ended up writing football RPF for Yuletide. They were super nice and helped me with the story and everything. I had loads of fun writing this fic though I developed a disliking for Jürgen Klinsman while writing it.

And a big shout-out to Tish for writing my amazing giftfic, 50 Shades of Gus (Drop the Dead Donkey, mature).
hildigunnur: (Default)
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! And Happy Holidays to those who celebrate other holidays around this time! And Happy Thursday to those who don't celebrate any holiday this time of year!

I've got to tell you all about the fic I got for Yuletide 'cause it's the best.

50 Shades of Gus (2289 words) by Mystery Writer (this is like the best title ever)
Fandom: Drop the Dead Donkey
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No warnings
Summary: Sometimes dreams can come true. Sometimes nightmares can also come true. Set after S5E12: Sex 'n Death

If you've ever seen Drop the Dead Donkey and enjoyed it, you are going to love this fic because it's very much in the spirit of the show. The characterization is just wonderful and it's hilarious to the max. The title kind of says it all. I seriously am in awe of the mystery writer who managed to write such a great fic from my crazy prompt.

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

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).
hildigunnur: (Default)
Merry Christmas, everyone (who celebrates)! Happy Wednesday to the rest of you!

I got my Yuletide fic!!! I was kind of dismayed this morning when I opened up my email and saw no gift notification but then I looked at my AO3 page and saw my gift fic and it was perfect. Just perfect.

in the religion of insecure (5512 words) by Mysterious Writer
Fandom: Queer as Folk UK
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Relationship: Stuart Alan Jones/Vince Tyler
Summary: In which Vince is stalked by a wedding invitation, Manchester hasn't changed nearly enough, and Stuart knows what he wants, thank you very much.

It is perfect. I want to weep because it's so perfect. So if you are like me and love Stuart and Vince to death, go and read it. Run and read it. Just read it.

I might update this with a proper update soon. Who knows?

Dear Yuletide writer,

Yuletide is upon us yet again. I love this time of year and I do hope you do too, dear writer, and that you aren't completely dismayed to have been assigned to write for me. It's my greatest wish that you'll have fun writing for me.

As for general fic likes, I'm easy to please really. I confess to be a bit of romantic as well as avid enjoyer of the racier sort of fanfic but I have an appreciation for most genres and writing styles. I'd rather want a writer being comfortable than bending backwards just to please me. Really, mostly I love a good piece of fanfiction. I suppose my defunct rec list might help you a bit and my likes on tumblr (why yes, I'm obsessed with figure skating and Glee).

I'm not easy to squick though I'd prefer it if all bloodplay is kept far away from me. I steer pretty much clear of gore and scat though those aren't true hard squicks like bloodplay is. I'm not keen on non-con (can read it under certain circumstances) and would prefer not to be tested with that in my gift fic. I don't really like kidfic (love it when kids are PoV characters but prefer not to read about the perils of parenthood and other such matters). Other than that, I don't think you need to worry much. If you like to make 100% sure that I'll be OK with what you are writing, you can go and ask [personal profile] sarka or [profile] vanessawolfie.

I wish you, dear Yuletide writer, all the best in your endeavors. I hope you have loads of fun writing a fic for me as I have a feeling whatever you'll come up with, will totally make my holidays.
Lots of love

I've like things to tell and stuff but first of all, I hope those who are celebrating, are enjoying their Christmas. Secondly, this is about [community profile] yuletide gift which was just the most perfect thing.

Some Clue or Something (3928 words) by lls_mutant
Fandom: Saved!
Rating: General Audience
Warnings: None
Relationship: Cassandra/Roland
Summary: Five times Roland and Cassandra helped Hilary Faye get her groove back, and one time they couldn't.

To put it simply, if you liked the movie Saved!, you will like this story. The characterization is so spot-on I could cry.

I promise that there's going to be a proper update in the future.

Dear Yuletide writer,

I can't believe it's time already for Yuletide. This is always such an exciting time. All I wish for you is that my requests and prompts will fill you with inspiration and make you eager to get down to writing.

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.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
I want to mention couple of flawless things.

The first would be my gift fic for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

the after hours (6854 words) by andbless_mybaby
Fandom: American Horror Story
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depiction of Violence, Major Character Death, Child Abuse, Homophobic Language, Misogyny (same as on the show, you know)
Relationship: Tate Langdon/Violet Harmon
Summary: Twelve scenes from the (after)life of Tate Langdon.

SO FLAWLESS.

(Seriously though, why do I like Tate Langdon so much?)

Then there are the results of the Japanese Nationals (figure skating, people!). It's so going to be all GANBARE NIPPON at Worlds. The world teams is flawless: Daisha, Yuzuru and Taka-chan plus Mao, Kanako and Akiko. I do feel bad about Oda withdrawing but still so awesome.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
Dear Yuletide writer,

'Tis the season again and I'm hoping that you aren't feeling any despair at the moment as I dearly wish you to feel inspired. I made some requests and below you might find further explaining why I'm such a cruel person.

As for general fic likes, I'm easy to please really. I confess to be a bit of romantic as well as avid enjoyer of the racier sort of fanfic but I have an appreciation for most genres and writing styles. I'd rather want a writer being comfortable than bending backwards just to please me. Really, mostly I love a good piece of fanfiction. I suppose my somewhat defunct rec list might help you a bit.

Hello little Yule goat!

It's my sincere wish that my prompts are inspiring to you and that they aren't causing you to *headdesk* or anything. However, if my prompts may indirectly caused any serious damage to your furniture, I'm willing to offer you reparations though I can't really help my fic urges. Now, for the prompts:

The Legend of the Ice People )

Figure Skating RPF )

Ten Inch Hero )

Now about my general likes when it comes to fics. I have a rec list on Delicious for you to check out and I like all kinds though of course I do tend to like it on the explicit side but I'm not adverse to the lower ratings. If you potentially matched up with me on figure skating RPF, then you probably were in great luck as I've been reading quite heavily there so you should get a pretty clear view of my tastes there. But in all honesty, I'm easy to please. I like most genres and writing styles and such. Write what you want.

I do have dislikes and I have to mention my ultimate squick first. I don't like bloodplay (except in the rare vampire fic) so I'd advise you keep that out. Also if including non-con, please step lightly. It's not a squick or a trigger or anything like that. I'm just not all that into it. Also kidfic isn't something I seek out. I deal with kids in my job and I tend to pick away at the characterization in kidfics. Nobody wants that, do they?

But overall, dear yule goat, I'm going to be so happy with whatever you are going to write for me. Things made with love and care make the greatest yuletide gifts and that's all I want.

Lots of love,
Hildi

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.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
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.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
It's the time of the year when Yuletide creeps upon you. So dear Yuletide writer, you got assigned little old me. Well, crazy little old me.

I do hope you are not tearing out your hair over my pretty open requests. But I'm pretty easy to please really. I like fluff, I like angst, I enjoy the occasional darkfic. I don't squick easily (more on that later) and I don't have any triggers or at least not any I've encountered in my eight plus years in fandom.

I don't have any particular dislikes that I expect to crop up. My dislikes have always been fandom specific and let's not go there. You really don't want hear about how much I hate Ron-bashing since you are not going to write me a Harry Potter fic.

My squicks can be summed up in one word: bloodplay. Well, also watersports and scat but I won't be half as disappointed if you inadvertently include scat than you'd include bloodplay. Don't ask why. It would be true teal deer.

So yeah, basically I'm easy to please and I will probably love your fic.

Let's get down to individual fandoms.

Drop the Dead Donkey
More )

Green Wing
More )

RPF - Take That
More )

A Bit of Fry and Laurie
More )

I do hope this has made you feel all warm inside and you are now dancing a merry jig in celebration because you were assigned my requests. Well, probably not but I do hope you are done with the screaming at least. ;)

If you are still curious about my likes and dislikes, feel free to check out my rec list. It used be Harry Potter-only but has now plethora of Supernatural and CWRPS fics and then you can find the occasional other stuff. And if you think reading my own writing might help you, check out this list of my fics.
hildigunnur: (danny/kenickie otp)
People, I'm stuffed. Both with great food and great fic.

OMG! [livejournal.com profile] yuletide! It's awesome. I was so lucky that I had the loveliest couple of Yuletide treats. Two adorable Grease fics with Kenickie and Danny being angsty and cute and slashy. Fade Out, Fade In and Greased Lightning.

The recipient of my fic seemed to like the fic so really it couldn't been better except for that fact that Yuletide means a tide of excellent fic. I've started bookmarking stuff, then I need to tag it and stuff on delicious.com. But I have to rec one fic now, The Running Order, a Drop the Dead Donkey fic where current events feature heavily.
