Folgers "Home For the Holidays" commercial
Hark! A Vagrant

YULETIDE RECS!\o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/
So I had an awesome first Yuletide. I got THREE gifts -- one main, one treat, and one Yuletide Madness double-drabble, and all of them were awesome,
and you should go READ THEM. And I beta-read a bunch of other excellent stories, which you should also GO READ. Also! I have been reading lots of other things, some recced to me by chatters or by people in the Yuletide comm, some in fandoms I love. READ EVERYTHING. I am still in the process of doing just that, and in my neurotic completist heart of hearts I kind of want to wait until I have read everything so I can be Fair and rec all the good things at once, but that isn't going to happen. I'll probably make another post later.
Under the cut, 21 recs in:
12th Century RPF
Choice of Broadsides
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Ghost Soup Infidel Blue
Greek and Roman Mythology
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Lion in Winter
Olympic Opening Ceremony
Robin Hood (Disney)
You Belong With Me - University of Rochester Yellowjackets( RECS! )

Chapter 32 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLiveJournalThe Archive of Our Own
This is the last chapter of this plot arc, and as I've been working for most of November and December on my Yuletide fic (it's a very long fic), I haven't been working all that much on this. I PROMISE I KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.
Also, agh, Rowena is really amazingly self-centered in this. There are... no words.

Chapter 31 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
Also, I've finished my first draft of the Yuletide fic, and am kind of dreading rereading and editing, because it is a very long
fic and I have had to do all kinds of research on it, and I'm not sure if it was enough. I really wanted to write treats too, but I'm not sure I have time to write them now, especially considering my stupidly overlong main fic.

Chapter 30 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
Not much else to add. Working on Yuletide! I do not have bears*
yet, but they are there in the distance, being large and hairy and writer-eating. * "Bears" is a wonderfully apropos Yuletide term for AGH I CAN'T WRITE THIS panicking.

Chapter 28 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
In this chapter... Rowena has a plan.
A plan to make amends! A plan to get back to the castle! A plan that is... well. I'll. I'll let you form your own opinions of her plan.
(Not even going to lie, when I was writing this chapter, I did not actually know what said plan consisted of, so my reaction was as full of WHAT? NO. ...WHAT? NO.
as anyone else's reactions.)

Chapter 28 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted... early.Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
In this chapter, poor Rowena needs all the hugs. And Godric needs hugs and Clio and okay, basically like half the characters: hugs needed.
Anyway, I'm going to stay with my grandmother after we go out for Thanksgiving dinner, so I'll be without internet until late on Saturday. Have a good Thanksgiving and/or perfectly normal Thursday, everyone!
And if you are in the US, please exercise common sense on Black Friday. (Do other countries have versions of Black Friday? It seems really, really USian.) I've heard stories -- be careful out there! I leave you this handy pictorial instruction:

Chapter 27 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own(Um, actually it was posted this Friday, as usual, only I didn't tell anyone because this week's been kind of rough and the self-loathing gnomes were active. BUT THIS CHAPTER IS GOOD I PROMISE.)

Chapter 26 of Between Here and Now and Forever is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
Also, I'm nearly done with canon review for my Yuletide recipient's fic. I am reminded of how much I adore this canon, despite its flaws. And I have a nice vague outline of what I'm going to write, and have about 2.3k words on it already, which isn't NaNo levels, but it ain't bad considering.
Am also eyeing treats. YAY WRITING.

Chapter 20 of the Founders story (Between Here and Now and Forever) is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
I have nothing particular to add this week, except that ...while I like a lot of the stuff on Pottermore, you will never hear me use the word "Magbobs" in my medieval HP 'verse. It is a sillier word than "Hufflepuff," and that's saying something.

Chapter 19 of the Founders story (Between Here and Now and Forever) is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
I don't have much to add, except that I am going out of town tomorrow to stay with my grandmother this weekend. This is an especially good thing right now, because she doesn't have internet access, so I won't keep checking hit counts obsessively. (What? Other people do this, right? It can't just be me. Can it? OH GOD WHAT IF IT IS.)
Anyway, at some point I think I should post an entry about how much I love the game Glitch
and why it is awesome, but not this weekend. (For now, though, I have three invites to the beta, so if anybody watches the trailer and loves it, I might be able to help you out.)

Chapter 18 of the Founders story (Between Here and Now and Forever) is posted!Fanfiction.NetSkyehawkeLivejournalThe Archive of Our Own
I have up to chapter 32 written, and I will be trying to post a new chapter every Friday! Also, I'm working on a cast list here
, so that people can keep the Cast of Thousands! straight. It will be (at least partly) illustrated because I'm a dork, although right now it only has the main four illustrated. thinkatory
helped me figure out what Basil looks like, so he will be there soon, along with Jasper and probably Peeves. (Currently my drawing of Peeves looks too much like a Jagermonster. It's probably the teeth.)
Speaking of thinkatory
, I am currently down one beta. For personal reasons, she's not able to beta for me, and as far as I know is not going to be finishing looking over this plot arc, although up to chapter 24 is beta'd. I have a really irregular fiction output -- I mean, uh, it took me two years to get these chapters done -- so I'm not sure having a go-to beta is really a workable thing for me, at least right now when I'm posting this fic as a work in progress, but Kitty sees a lot of the mistakes that I miss, and I would appreciate having someone look over chapters 25-32 for me. (I would send you chapters 19-24 as well; you wouldn't have to beta those, but more eyes is always better.) If I don't find anybody, I'll just post without a beta, so it's not the end of the world.

So I've officially sent the next fourteen chapters of the Founder fic to thinkatory
. I don't know when they'll be ready to post, but when they are I'll try to get one a week up. In the meantime, I'm starting to write and plan for the next plot arc, which will involve, um, working out more of the legal system. There might even be lawyers!
Also, I have somehow actually started to use my Twitter account. I ended up making friends through Fallen London
and now I occasionally spam Twitter with writing updates, this weekend's saga of the circuit breakers, or games of Mornington Invertebrate. I am @kaesaaurelia
