Summary: Written as a gift for [personal profile] dynastessa who requested: Please write me a ridiculously sap-filled story about Tom Lefroy and Jane Austen.
This story is Jane and Tom enjoying a wonderful evening together after throwing a card party in London. Set sometime after the fix-it fic that I will finish. I hope you like it, Jen.

She had talked of novels with many of the women and politics with everyone, they were helping London to see all that they could do. Though they would do it their way, because the way everything worked now wasn’t right. )

Summary: A gift fic for [personal profile] thebattycakes who requested: Bill-Will-laws and lawlessness and I just realized that you might have wanted my other Will. I hope you like it.

This was the idea I got when I read the prompt, a moment in the Bar when Bill sees how easy it can be to go from being lawful to lawless. Bill talks to William about getting pulled away from the law when he suspects William's working for Ben Wade.

The Policemen and Firemen’s Dinner and Dance was never one of his favorite occasions, but he knew it wasn’t for him. He was there to represent the department, to talk to everyone and to be the Chief of Police. )

Summary: Written for [personal profile] yakalskovich who requested: I would love a fic where Erik and Charles run into each other somwhere long post-XM:FC when they both happen to be incognito in the same place?

Inspiration also came from a Twitter fic that I wrote for her: It was an accidental meeting, they were both traveling on a train east. Erik sat across from Charles and pulled his chair near.

Set sometime post-canon, Charles is going to a conference in Geneva and Erik enters his compartment.

Lunch had been nice, he had discussed Oxford, London, Paris and books coming out, no mentions of mutants, no one looked askance at him in fear of what he was hearing. )

I don't think my holiday cards are going to happen this year. I'm really sorry about this but the combination of new job, moving, the difficult transition has meant that my year has felt pushed about and I haven't had the time. Most of my vacation has been talking, resting, which I really needed and the cards aren't happening.

Since I do love gifting everyone and doing something for all of you wonderful people. I'm opening myself up to write more gift fics as I'm still working on the other ones. A new prompt, something we've discussed that I haven't written, whatever you would like, I'm here to write for you.

Tomorrow I start the drive back to Michigan with many supplies, goodies and I think a new coffee table from my father before starting work on Monday. I think I'm ready to reenter and face new challenges and keep doing more.

Summary [personal profile] sardonicynic asked for Bill and William, Measure of a Man. This one grew a lot in my head and I might end up writing some of the scenes I imagined but didn't write.

I kept thinking about how William, who has always defined himself in terms of his father, might find it odd to be a friend of Bill's and seen in those terms. There are a couple of scenes referenced that I might end up writing but for now, there's this moment. I love how these worlds intersect and what good friends Bill and Kate are to William, who's rather lost. Thank you also to Crys and Ali for introducing me to Yuma years ago.

They do, don’t they? Whenever I’ve gone to a football game, it can be hard to get a chance to sit as everyone wants to talk to him. He belongs to this town. )

Today has been a quiet and lovely day for me and its not over yet. This morning I woke up to find an incredibly effusive comment from the person I wrote my Yuletide story for telling me how they loved it. Then I went and read my story which made me so happy. Its the Magid universe with Nick, Roddy, fairy tales, Romanov being grumpy and Maxwell Hyde taking charge, it has what I love of the world and makes me beam.

Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Nick Mallory, Roddy Hyde, Romanov (Magids Series)

The problem with Sixteenth Birthdays, as Nick Mallory finds out, is that they are often the heralds for Great Adventure.

Unfortunately, the adventure wasn't for him, but to find him.

I haven't had time yet to dig into other fics as we had friends over for brunch and didn't open presents until a little later. My presents made me happy; two beautiful sweaters, iridescent earrings, bourbon, New Zealand wine, a bowl my father made, a piece of family china, an antique book of Voltaire from my grandfather's collection and some mad money to spend however I wish.

At the moment the house is quiet as my parents and sister are out taking a walk while I catch up on the world. One of the ways we do the holidays is lots of cooking so at a certain point there are enough leftovers to last days. The night I arrived we had duck, last night my father butterflied a turkey which was good and tonight leg of lamb.

I'm going to put up a holiday EP from Tumnus at some point this week, since my father's reading the Narnia books and Christmas and Narnia just fit. My sister heads off tomorrow and on Friday, there will be family celebration with my brother and his family, which means I have a few days to plunge into Yuletide fics, write gift fics and just be.

Merry Christmas! Happy holidays! I hope that you're surrounded by those you love!

At the moment there is a loaf of honey orange bread baking in my oven from a recipe in the New York Times' cookbook, almost all of my family presents are wrapped and I'm finally starting to accept that I have finished my first half year as a school librarian.

Today was a strange day, its one of those days that feels like it has many days in it, which is always a little odd. It began while it was still dark and lightly snowing, then the morning went by quickly in fifteen minute bursts with the students buzzing about with excitement for their secret Santas and various other stuff. The library felt wonderful and alive, then there was a holiday assembly.

What I love about this school is the assemblies are rather unplanned, anyone who wanted to perform just let the performing acts director know and then they could. There were kids playing music, doing comedy, singing and doing a forensic's skit, forensics is a type of judged performance. What was great was that middle school and high schoolers performed and everyone was clapped and cheered on. This school supports everyone, which is why I love it.

Then the school emptied because the afternoon was based around things done in homerooms. Some went out to lunch, some went to the movies, due to the weather, a lot of them watched movies and played video games and there was lots of food. I didn't interact with most of these but instead enjoyed a quiet library until at one point my supervisor went oh you haven't eaten, attach yourself to a homeroom. That didn't make sense to me just like inviting myself to the luncheon that ended up happening in the main office, I don't feel comfortable inviting myself. Its something that's been trained into me that you don't do but homerooms are how a lot of the social life of the school is built. Though whenever I've gone into a homeroom I've been very welcomed, so some of its in my head and being new. I will find my way in and some of that is going to involve talking to teachers and students to see if I can be a part of what they're doing as well as finding ways for the library to have a role in these sorts of not as structured days.

After school, my video gamers came back and were loud and rowdy and I kind of loved it. It makes me happy that even though they could just go home, they would rather be hanging out with friends in the library. Then I ventured into the blowing snow to buy dinner, which will provide food at the hotel tomorrow and fall over. Tonight there was a happy hour, a house warming and a sports event going on but I didn't have the energy for them.

Since I've been home and able to bake, talk to my parents and do some wrapping, I feel more rested. Its just been a long day and I think I reached the end of my socialness at school. This new job brings out interesting parts of me; the quiet observer who is learning the school, the extrovert who says see me and what I can do and the introvert who worries about pushing too hard. As this break progresses, I think I'm going to be able to realize more and more what I've done and can do, but for now I'm enjoying resting.

Tomorrow I set out for the east coast and will be there until the weekend of January 5th. Since my brother who lives in New Jersey is having Christmas with his wife's family, our family get together won't be until the weekend of New Year's. I'm thinking that possibly after that party, I might go catch Jersey transit and head to NYC, though only if people there have the space for me. Its been ages since I was in the City and I miss all the millimuns there. I also would love to connect with people in the Maryland area, which I wanted to do before new job whisked me away. Leave a comment or send me an email and we can plan. I've made it halfway through the year!

In terms of Yuletide, I finished mine last week and it turns out that I'm getting a Pinch Hit, which is nice. I was kind of worried when I didn't see a gift but not too much. It feels great to be hitting the road not having it hanging over me. I'm hoping that the drive will spur my brain on holiday prompts, which I'm still taking more here and hope to have them done by the New Year.

I have actually done some TwitterFics last week and this week, which I will post.

My bread just beeped so I'm going to go check on it and then do some packing. The bread's a little dark but smells delicious, my oven is a good one. Far better than at my last apartment so I need to remember that.

This weekend has been wonderfully quiet for me. I just came back from Ann Arbor, where I was able to finish my last holiday shopping for my family, have a great meal with Rick and get The Hobbit soundtrack, the deluxe version with all the bells and whistles. I'm starting to realize that in one week, I will have finished the first half of my first year as a middle/high school librarian and that for all the things I still have to do, this job is working. Its complicated but all the tricky parts can be worked with and will get better with time. I need to hold onto that when the kids are getting rowdy or I'm not sure anyone's hearing me, I'm making this work.

The big stuff left for the holidays is getting paper and printing out my holiday cards and sending them. That also means finding where I packed the connector cord for my computer to my printer, its not too deep in, but I don't know where it is. If I can get them printed out before I leave then I can send them from my parents place. They won't be sent until after Christmas but that's why they're holiday cards. I'm also hoping to get writing on holiday fics, the ideas are swirling around in my head but I haven't been able to pin them down yet. I'm still open to prompts here as I love writing for everyone. Last week was focusing on my Yuletide, which is written, betaed and posted. I've never been this early before its odd and nice.

As its been floating around, I thought I'd also do the Yuletide meme. This is my fourth year doing Yuletide, I started during my first year of graduate school. I love being a part of it and its inspired me to do other exchanges, as well as learning a lot about how I write.

2009: They are Mine. Sandman with Bast, Daniel and references to Dream. My first year I wasn't sure how best to do offers and did too many Anys, so ended up with a request for I think Aphrodite/Pandora slash that made me boggle. I had recently read a wonderful anthology of short stories based around Sandman called The Sandman: Book of Dreams and my person had a request for a story about Bast. I think I wrote this story a day or two days before the deadline.

2010: By the Fire. Old Kingdom set during Lirael and a missing moment conversation between Yrael and Kibeth. This year I was better about only offering what I thought I could write. This is one of my favorite fics that I've written for Yuletide, because I feel like I captured the characters. Though this was another one that I wrote closer to the deadline, I was getting better about writing long stories but they're not easy for me. One reason I signed up to Yuletide was to get over a mental block I had about word lengths due to not finishing my masters in Wellington.

2011: On the way back. Hexwood centered on Vierran and Mordion. For this story, I ended up doing more writing ahead of time but it was a challenging one as its a tricky canon. In the end I think I posted it the day before the due date if not on it as I was driving home.

Its interesting to look at my offers as I've started using Yuletide as a challenge for myself in offering to write for fandoms that I like but don't normally write. Thanks to Yuletide, I've lost a good bit of my fear for writing in new fandoms and word lengths. I still have moments of eep, what am I doing but its better. This year mine is actually turned in early, its my longest one yet and in a new fandom.

I've been running ever so slightly late for work this week and the last as all the stress of what I have to get done has been catching up with me. Today I took that as a sign and didn't go into work, which was what I needed. I've slept in and been able to knock a couple of things off my to do list. I now have more contacts, have ordered a really lovely pair of glasses though glasses are my back ups but still, these are cute and an investment.

Hello to everyone from the friending meme, I figure I should tell you something about myself now I'm not in as bad a place as I was yesterday.

-In September I started a job as a middle/high school librarian in a small independent school in the Michigan suburbs after spending a year looking for a job and living in Ann Arbor. I got my MSI degree at UoM and stayed there in the hopes of finding something. I write a lot about this job as the school hasn't had a full time librarian for a couple of years so I'm helping to define the position while I work. This is exciting and stressful and takes up a good bit of space here. If you'd like more context on my work, I have a librarian blog and my work tag is cowboy school.

-The other thing that takes up a good part of my time is [community profile] milliways_bar, a panfandom roleplaying game that I've been at since February 2006 or 2007, I'd have to check my dates. Milliways is one of my happiest places on the web and I'll often write about it on here as well as Milliways' specific fic. Over there I roleplay Will Scarlett from Robin Hood legends, Charles Xavier from X-Men: First Class, Sameth from the Abhorsen Chronicles, William Evans from 3:10 to Yuma, Moist von Lipwig from Discworld, Demeter from Greek Mythology, Jane Austen from Becoming Jane, Tumnus from Narnia, mainly book with some movie influences and The Pirate King from The Pirates of Penzance, 1983 Kevin Kline flavor.

-In terms of writing, I love finding ficathons to write for but often will be working on various pieces. The current fandom I'm writing the most for is X-Men: First Class because Charles Xavier creates far too many plot bunnies for me. I also roleplay him in Milliways and his point of view fits me. I've been lately getting into fic exchanges as I love them. This is my fourth year doing Yuletide, my second doing ineedmyfics and my first year doing the Narniaficexchange and I plan on doing more as writing for someone else makes me happy. Whenever I see a prompt meme that I like, it ends up on my journal and I try to fill all of them though sometimes they get lost.

-I grew up outside Philadelphia and consider myself an East Coaster though I've spent the last three years in Ann Arbor and have started a new job in Michigan. I love to travel and have lived abroad in New Zealand.

I think that's all for now. Two quick holiday reminders. If you would like a card and your address has changed or I've never sent you one before comment here and if you would like a gift fic comment here. I can't promise that either of them will get done by Christmas but they will happen.

It turns out a school party that I thought was tonight is tomorrow night, so I can have a restful night. The day is rainy but not as cold as yesterday, I always appreciate not having to deice my car in the morning.

Now for two holiday things, I'll try and hit up everyone's love meme threads this weekend and if you don't do them, know that I think you're wonderful. I hope to get started on my cards soon as I feel a little overwhelmed at how behind I am on my shopping.

If you'd like a holiday fic, leave me a prompt here.

I just had another good day as I gave some research instruction in two government classes and another social studies teacher was in the classroom. When I finished, the other teacher asked me to come in tomorrow and do the same thing for his classes. It was such a great feeling to have that immediate sense of I did good enough that someone else wants me. I also stayed later to be a chaperone for an open mic night, I watched stairs and a door but it was great to see how they organized everything. I love where I've ended up.

Then after school, there was another gaming discussion that I think worked out well. It's going to have to go into practice to see if it works and I still kind of sigh at one of the heads who doesn't get it. Computers and gaming aren't going to go away, but she's retiring and a new person is coming in, which is hopeful. I mean I like this woman but her ideas about internet and such are old fashioned.

Now since I'm in a good mood and am feeling inspired, I would love to do some holiday fics for everyone. Just like with the cards, I can't promise they'll be done before the holidays, but they'll appear around them. I have a lovely long break.

Leave me a prompt with characters, line, whatever you would like and I will write you something. If you have a fandom question, let me know and I'll see what I can do. I promise at least a hundred words, possibly many more if the bug hits me. Let me gift you with words.

Since Wednesday, I've been in hanging out with [personal profile] dodger_sister and her family, who have welcomed me in. Her and her sister's cats have been cute and kind to me and filled up my Twitter feed with pictures, I've had delicious food and been able to sleep in.

This was the break I hadn't realized I needed. I mean I knew I needed it but my body has gone, oh true sleep, yay and I've had long and late mornings. The room I'm staying in is very dark as well, which means I've been sleeping even later than I normally would. Its just would I needed. We haven't done too much, which is also nice. On Thursday, there was a Thanksgiving meal at about 2 pm at their mother's house and then a game of scrabble after. Then we watched episodes of Buffy starting with Pangs as that's one of their traditions.

Friday was set aside for going to see Red Dawn because A loved the original and had to see the remake. It was one of the stupidest movies I've seen in a long time and the shaky cam made me nauseous enough that I had to put my head down at some points. The good parts in it were the opening credits, which spliced together real news to build up the threat of North Korea and Chris Hemsworth being a jaded Marine. Everything else was pretty awful, there were some badass lady fighters but the brother relationship that was meant to be at the heart really didn't work as they didn't look like brothers. The actor they chose looked more like Peter Petrelli's younger brother and Josh Hutcherson who was in it would have made far more sense as Hemsworth's brother. Then we came back, had leftover turkey for dinner and played a movie trivia game. One thing I really enjoy about A and her family is this love of playing games, its a great way to spend time. After our game, I introduced them all to Stardust, which I had brought with me and it was just the right movie, fun, silly and pretty.

Today A and her family are having another family meal, which it doesn't make sense for me to go to. Instead I went to a lovely Chinese restaurant for lunch, wandered through Toys'r'us which is selling a lot more electronics than I remembered. I spent a long time staring at all the fun action figures, but in the end only picked up an adorable Boo in costume plush for a present. I really need to get on my holiday shopping, but I do have ideas.

Also a reminder that I'm sending out cards again this year, if your address has changed, please let me know here. I'm hoping this afternoon to try and get more done on my Yuletide, which I'm happy with my progress but its nowhere near done yet.
ceitfianna: (pumpkin pie)
I just back from a lovely Thanksgiving with my friend A and her family. I've been sleeping in and just feeling tired and grateful.

I'm grateful for everyone in my life who has helped me get through this wonderful and tricky transition. I hope that your days are full of people you love and delicious food.

Now a wonderful meme last seen on [personal profile] ashen_key's journal.

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Don't forget to post this in your own journal so I can compliment you, too!

Also if you want a card, please let me know here. I do have lots of addresses and will send cards if I have your address, but let me know if its changed.

My break is going along wonderfully well. I just apped [personal profile] balancingminds over on [community profile] milliways_bar and the thought of getting to play him there just makes me happy. This weekend, I'm going to put up an EP with him and possibly some others over in the sandboxes as they've been getting rather ignored in favor of Allpocalypse and aftermath.

Now I have this rather bad habit of not emptying my digital camera often enough so the current 100 plus images on it are from as far back as Christmas. Since I have a few shots I rather like, this is going to be a rather photo heavy post just mainly under the cut.

When that photograph something meme was going around, [personal profile] dodger_sister said How about a photograph of books (bet it will look very artistic) and
maybe the next time it snows, a picture of that (your snow pictures
always look so pretty).
So for her, I have snow from a few different times and a picture of some of my bookshelves. I want to do more shots of them and maybe submit a good one to prettybooks.tumblr.com.

Consider this post a place as well to ask me to photograph stuff in my life for you as I adore taking pictures but am bad at sharing them.

I just finished talking to my parents as they're now safely back from Haiti and adjusting. They spent all of yesterday traveling so they're quite tired. It was wonderful to hear from them and it sounds like they had an amazing experience, it was just odd for all of us to not have any contact for a week. It's been a long time since we had that but that was out of their control and clearly they were able to do what they hoped.

Today has started off quite strangely for me as whatever cold or flu I'm fighting off has made it hard to sleep and my body temperature's just off. Thankfully I have the time to be able to sleep deep into the afternoon after being kept awake with an idea for Milliways that I had to go write about 6 am. I think with more rest, I'll be fine.

In terms of messages and how I feel this has been one of the best Valentine's days I've had in a long time. Galentine's Day made this past week fantastic with new messages every day. My parents mailed me some fun socks and when I talked to them today, I also found a twenty dollar bill in those socks. [personal profile] dynastessa's beautiful card arrived today. And thank you to [personal profile] wanderlustlover, [personal profile] sardonicynic, [profile] bajoransmurf and [personal profile] elfinecstasy for the pretty glass hearts from LJ. I almost forgot the amazing story that [personal profile] in_the_blue wrote for me from a prompt I left for the [community profile] ineedmyfics. It's here and it's called Balance and a Baccano! story.

Thank you all for being in my life and I have ideas for the gift prompts, so the joys will continue on.
ceitfianna: (Hiding Cat)
This week has been strange for me as there are two things that I haven't wanted to talk a lot for fear of having them shift on me. In theory this can be helpful but in the end, it's meant that I've made it to today and feel worn out and slightly sick from what's inside and too much inside.

Galentine's Day has been making me smile so much and I've been trying to find lovely images. I haven't had the energy to make things but I love finding the right image for all the wonderful ladies in my life. Every day I'm doing a few as I get notices in my inbox, which makes me feel blessed.

Now to get what's been weighing on me out into the world. The first news is hopeful, one of the jobs I applied for let me know that I got past the first round. They also sent me a cryptic email that I'd really like to have my parents look over so I can figure out what in the world to do next. So that's hopeful, but again I haven't wanted to say much about it for fear it might disappear.

While what's been a constant worry for me since last Saturday is that my parents are currently in Haiti with a group organized by an Anglican minister friend of theirs. They return tomorrow though I'm not sure of the exact time of their various flights. I know they're in good hands and well prepared but I miss them and want to know they're well and safe. A weight will be gone from me when I get to talk to them on the phone again.

I think some of this worry might actually have manifested in a story for [profile] 100wordstories about Sameth and Sabriel over here as the prompt was Affection and suddenly I had a story.

Everything in Milliways is wonderful and I have so many ideas that I hope to do more with after I've rested and righted myself slightly. One thing I love about Milliways is how when there's a plot that just works, the Bar becomes so active. I've been lucky enough to have been a part of a couple of these plots in my five years and this kind of excitement is what I hoped for to happen before the move.

I made it through this week but it feels like every day has been a fight and pushing against something. On Monday, I'm flying to the East Coast and I'll be there until next Tuesday. I'll be online sporadically while I'm away since my family keeps me busy and I'm ready to curl up in a ball and be taken care of. I also realized that even though I saw my entire family at my brother's wedding, I haven't actually been back to the East Coast since the holidays last year and I miss it.

Currently I seem to be fighting off something as my throat hurts so much and I feel worn out. A good part of that probably comes from just how long this week was but I really don't want to lose my voice. That happened to me during last winter break and it sucked. Currently I have peppermint tea with honey and I want to try and find a tea I had with my lunch-chamomile and lavender. It was soothing and delicious and made me happy.

Good things are happening and I want to focus on them. I turned my horrible work experience on Monday night into a blog post on my librarian journal: Patron, friend or acquaintance-The complications of intimacy through instant messages. I feel very happy with it and writing always helps me deal with the world.

I've also signed up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide and I'm looking forward to it this year as I have more time and feel more confident in my writing. Doing [livejournal.com profile] ineedmyfics helped me see how I can write many fandoms when I set my mind to it. Also I'm incredibly tickled by how my Daily Entertainment interested two people who've never done Yuletide before into signing up for their first year.

I'm hoping over the break to get at least a draft if not finish my Charles X dreamfic before Yuletide gets too involved. The main structure is there, I just need to figure out how much more it needs.

My to do list isn't too horrible at the moment. I'd like to try and get up to date on LibraryThing but that won't take too long. When I finished work on Friday, I went into Dawn Treader and had a great time buying books to take with me. I found a Dorothy Sayers and Ngaio Marsh I don't own, The Talented Mr. Ripley, which I've been meaning to read and Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody as I enjoyed the last one of hers I read. Currently I'm reading a Ngaio Marsh set in New Zealand and missing it.

Probably tomorrow if not later this week my card post will go out. For those of you new to my flist, the past two or three years I make a holiday card out of a photograph of mine and send them off. I'll be putting up a post with screened comments for leaving your address if you want one.

I'm also still open to questions on this post. I'll probably answer them in a separate post as the comments of that one have gotten long.

Thank you all for the incredible support this week.
