Sparklefandom had a fic exchange! It was very exciting. I wrote a fic AND I got given TWO fics, both of which were GREAT.

Nowwww I just have to find the time to read all the other fics in the collection, of which there's an impressive number for such a small fandom. But I have a busy weekend ahead of me. But I want to read the fics! Sigh.

There is no simple word like beloved for what he feels for Tybalt's face, that tightening in his chest of mingled hatred and reluctant fondness, the rush of excitement whenever they cross blades or words. Mercutio has always won, before, the better fighter on both battlefields.

Mercutio opens his eyes after the duel.

This year for yuletide I wrote two fics, awww yeah, go me!

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Additional Tags: Hair, Friendship, Backstory, warning for unhealthy relationships because Verona
Summary:

Tybalt and Mercutio were childhood friends, of a sort.


This one I wrote pretty much immediately after I read Carmarthen's letter. I was reading through, like "lalala what a good letter" and then all of a sudden one of her prompt suggestions leaped out and attacked my brain. So. I was extremely namf about this one while I was writing it, because wowwww Mercutio is hella intimidating to write, but I'm pleased with how it turned out!



in three-quarter time (1036 words) by sophia_sol
Fandom: Den lille Havfrue | The Little Mermaid - Hans Christian Andersen
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, outside pov, Misses Clause Challenge
Summary:

The princess reflects.


This was my assigned fic, and I had lots of fun brainstorming a million different things I could write for this one. The great thing about writing fic for fairy tales is that there's pretty much an endless number of places you can go. In the end this is the idea that I felt most drawn to. I'm pleased with how this one turned out too! Although upon finishing it I sat back for a moment and went, "HUH." Because thinking back over the last number of female-character-centric fics I've written, pretty much all of them have been either gen or gen-ish and on the theme of grief or loss of some sort. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ME that I am drawn to explorations of these themes through the medium of female characters, but there's clearly SOMETHING going on in my subconscious!

And the fics I received! I received two fics as well, a bountiful and delightful harvest.

The City of Carcayona (15496 words) by Gehayi
Fandom: Robinson Crusoe -- Daniel Defoe
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Xury, Robinson Crusoe, Scottish Sailor (Robinson Crusoe), Portuguese Captain (Robinson Crusoe), Original Male Character(s), Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: 1600s, 17th Century, Canon Character of Color, POV Character of Color, Male Character of Color, Female Character of Color, Character of Faith, POV Male Character, POV Third Person, POV Minor Character, Slave Trade, Non-Sexual Slavery, Sailor - Freeform, Muslim Character, Historical, Moriscos, Legends, Turkey (Country), Venezia | Venice, Egypt, Ottoman Empire, Road Trips, Yuletide, Yuletide 2013, Wordcount: 10.000-30.000, Chromatic Yuletide
Summary:

"It's only a story, Xury," said Téo gently.

"I know it is a story, " Xury replied with wounded dignity. "I am fifteen, not five. But do you see why she is so important to us? She never quit. No matter what was flung at her, she kept on. And eventually she won. There are worse stories, Téo. Like the story that sings loudly, 'You are alone, enslaved, helpless and without hope, and thus it shall be forever.' That is a terrible story to believe in."


FIFTEEN THOUSAND WORDS FIXING XURY'S STORY FROM ROBINSON CRUSOE, filled with carefully researched history and people being good to each other and a great deal of hope! Gosh, I was just blown away, and it's so exactly everything I ever wanted about this book and this character.



On the Selection of Those Who Will Represent Humanity to the Inhabitants of Toliman B (3102 words) by Syme
Fandom: Three Hearings on the Existence of Snakes in the Human Bloodstream - James Alan Gardner

Additional Tags: Original Character(s), Future
Summary:

A record of the sub-committee's interview of Maggie Farrell, Somnotician and candidate for the position of artist on the delegation which will shortly leave Earth to make first contact with the inhabitants of Toliman B.


FIC EXISTS FOR THIS SHORT STORY HOLY CRAP, and this too is everything I could have hoped for! This fic ran with my prompt of a fourth hearing set in the future and does a careful and thoughtful and wonderful job of continuing the themes of the story in an interesting and plausible way. ALSO IT IS A FIC ABOUT DREAMS AND STORIES AND SPACE.

So basically this was an absolutely amazing yuletide, AS ALWAYS. I love yuletide so very much.

Dear DW,

I feel the need to inform you that I wrote a thing. Like ~250 words of space verona boybands in extremely implausible gyms, all the fault of #sparklechat.

I can't NOT tell you because this is, technically speaking, my main blog. So. Here it is. Just for you.

Love,

Sophia

Mara asked me last night whether I like Elisabeth or Romeo es Julia better, and I was momentarily stymied. I hadn't actually thought about it like that before! I've just been busily fanning over both!

It turns out to be something of a complicated question for me. Because first of all, my ideal production of Elisabeth doesn't exist, whereas my ideal production of Romeo es Julia pretty much does. And second of all, they're actually really different from each other? I like them in different ways!

cut for people who don't care. No actual spoilers, I think. )

Romeo es Julia is the Hungarian version of the French musical based on Shakespeare's play based on earlier versions of a similar story. I have never before in life cared at all about this story or the characters in it but either I am a sucker for musicals or the Hungarians did an exceptional job (or both) because SO MANY FEELS OVER EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. AAAAAAAHHHHHH.

cut for spoilers? I suppose? Or something? )


In vaguely related news, I really want to watch the Hungarian version of the musical Elisabeth now. Apparently one of the main characters is a darkly sparkly bisexual personification of death? WOW I AM SO THERE. I would worry over how into personifications of death I am except for how I have no desire to actually meet any of them myself....

I have reached a new low in finding things too stressful to watch. Romeo es Julia is the story of Romeo and Juliet (duh) and I KNOW THE PLOT PERFECTLY WELL, ROCKS FALL EVERYONE DIES, and I've never in my whole life had feelings over it before, but all of a sudden I can't make myself keep watching because auuuuuuuugh.

Mara is doing her best to be sympathetic but is not succeeding particularly well, and I don't blame her. I AM SO RIDICULOUS.
