The first of my two 2016 [community profile] fandom_stocking gifts, this one for [personal profile] ozqueen. I wrote and posted this fic before I read her letter for chocolate box this year, where she mentioned being interested in some Charlie Thomas & Patrick Thomas family dynamics, so win-win! =)

Points of interest... )

I enjoyed writing this immensely, and [personal profile] ozqueen enjoyed receiving it. I'm really happy I was able to push all the buttons for her that the book pushed in me. I have so many feels and so much sympathy for all of the Thomas brothers with this book - Charlie and Sam and poor David Michael, who feels left out but probably doesn't really understand why.

Hmm...I *do* have a David Michael prompt in my [community profile] babysitters100 table...maybe this is a way to fulfill it...

This year's [community profile] fandom_stockings have (finally) been revealed. Mine is here - and boy was I totally spoiled this year, haha. Not only did I receive 3 wonderful giftfics, but I also received recs for nail polish tutorials (yes!), a clutch of Clarissa-centric blog recs (Yes!), and icons from fellow fans of Jonathan Creek and Monarch of the Glen (YES!). I enjoy meeting new people who share my interests, so yays all around!

I ♥ this exchange because its the time when I'm mostly likely to receive things for the tiny fandoms of my heart, alongside the bigger fandoms of my heart, like BSC.

As per usual, I will post recs/author's notes for the few giftfics I gave this year in the coming weeks.

That being said, this is likely the last year I'm going to participate in [community profile] fandom_stocking, because the exchange is very poorly organized. It has single-handedly fueled my muses during the Christmas/holiday period for the last couple of years, but participating has become such a hassle that it'd be easier/more satisfying to gift things to the same folks, outside of the exchange.

Speaking of which - the [community profile] hetswap tagset looks very promising for this year, with multiple pairings from all of my major fandoms (including Inuyasha, BSC, and Sweet Valley) having been nominated quite early in the game. I nominated some things myself, but I was tickled to see so much possibility already there. There seems to have been something of a resurgence in desire to see IY canon pairings, especially - I'd love to see some of my IY fandom friends participate, just to be able to read new works by them (HINT HINT).

My 2016 [community profile] fandom_stocking is here! It looks like I'm the first one on the BSC tag this year; that could prove interesting...

If you have a stocking, let me know!

It's time once again for [community profile] fandom_stocking! :D

For those of you who aren't aware, this community is a low-pressure, less wanky, laid-back version of Yuletide. You list your fandoms and wants/wishes (fic, icons, art, etc), and others stuff your stocking with goodies! You don't have to be a member of the comm to participate, and it's always fun unwrapping presents well into the New Year, LOL :P

Guidelines are here, signups are here. As usual, I belatedly remembered that I don't follow the comm on my main account, and have been wondering about whether this was happening again this year. Luckily, it is! =) This is one of my absolute favorite things.

58 people have signed up so far. I am hoping that the usual BSC contingent will be around, as well as maybe some of my other fannish interests. Now, to find my old template and tweak it! =)

Chapter Title: 22 | Of Music & Nail Polish
Prompt: #097 – Nail Polish

Summary: Janine Kishi did not have much in common with her sister Claudia, but what they did share, she cherished.

Written for [personal profile] imamaryanne, for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking holiday exchange.

Points of interest... )

[personal profile] imamaryanne enjoyed the fic, for which I'm very happy - this isn't exactly my comfort zone when it comes to BSC fic, but it was fun to explore their sibling relationship and capture a moment in time when they were closer to each other than further apart. Janine already craves those sorts of moments, and I think as she grows up, Claudia will come to appreciate them, too.

Written for [personal profile] ozqueen, for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking holiday exchange.

Points of interest... )

To my great relief, [personal profile] ozqueen really enjoyed this, so yay! I am always a bit doubtful that my sense of humor translates well into the page. I was also a bit nervous about just putting a shortfic out there and letting it flail on its own merits. (700 words may not be "short," per se, but compared to my usual fare it certainly is!) I will definitely try this again as I continue on with my [community profile] babysitters100 table. There are some prompts I'm still staring at six years later with no idea how I'm going to fulfill them...

Written for [personal profile] baseballchica03, for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking holiday exchange ~ because writing Charlie/Janine fic for [personal profile] baseballchica03's fandom stocking has practically become a tradition :D

This fic basically opened the floodgates of my own personal headcanon for these two, which I've been inspired to serialize. Much as with Allegiance, this is going to be a non-linear post-canon continuum, so if you'd like to read it in order, check out my series index on DW or the series page on AO3.

Written for [personal profile] lionessvalenti, for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking holiday exchange. This was her request for the BSC fandom:

BSC: Any of the baby-sitters, including Abby and Shannon. Cary Retlin, Laine Cummings, Sunny Winslow, Ducky McCrae, Amalia Vargas, Pete Black, Alan Gray. High school fics are my favorite. College/middle school are okay. Adult/families of their own type future fics don't interest me. I love friendship fics for the baby-sitters, especially outside of the "best friends" combinations they have set up. I love seeing the girls interact with characters outside the club.

Hmm. I was pretty sure I could work with that.

Points of interest... )

[personal profile] lionessvalenti enjoyed this fic, as well as others from [community profile] fandom_stocking, which definitely made *me* feel better about writing a character I hadn't really played with in any way. This was the first of four fics I wrote for [community profile] fandom_stocking this year, and definitely the one that was the furthest out of my comfort zone. I enjoyed the experience, though, and definitely want to write more Jessi!fic. After all, I *do* have some experience writing about Juilliard, haha!! :D

Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to put something in my fandom stocking. I never know what to expect, but I am never disappointed. I feel like I win every single year, LOL - even the year that I was seriously ill and had to flake on everybody I wanted to treat, I totally won :D

This year I received a little bit of everything: BSC fics, IY fics (I miss you, IY fandom!!), a Tangled fic, lots of pictures of castles and kitty cats, and even a greeting from a heretofore unknown fellow KI fan! Unfortunately, my output was not as varied - I only finished 4 BSC fics, which will at some point feature at [community profile] babysitters100. This little fic-writing spree inspired more BSC fic, as well as a character guide for Charlie Thomas, so I was definitely busy during my little week and a half of vacation :P

Quite a few of you on my f-list treated me, and I tried to do the same. There was at least one fic that I did not have time to write before reality set in, but it will be coming at some point this year. If you had a fandom stocking, I hope you enjoy your gifts as much as I love mine!!
