Rating: PG-13

Fandom: Skins
Pairing: Katie/Effy
Rating: PG-13
Words: 2548
Summary: Effy's spent the last few months watching from afar as Katie scraped together her self-esteem, but it's a brittle armour, easy to punch through should Effy wish.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] chekhovsrifle as part of [livejournal.com profile] skins_holiday. (I feel kind of weird posting Christmas fic a week late, but whatever, it's still officially Christmas until Epiphany, right?)

Today seems to be a day of ridiculous fandom love (yay!) so I thought it was an appropriate time to post this. IDK, I had SO MUCH FUN writing this fic but I have no idea if it will actually be amusing to anyone who isn't me.

Title: A Rapid Imagination

Rating: PG
Words: 4740
Summary: "My life would be infinitely more complicated with you in it."
Notes: Written for the Fall Fandom Free-For-All. For [livejournal.com profile] shan_3414, who requested a historical AU and suggested something Jane Austen-esque. This is, um, kind of a ridiculous Pride & Prejudice pastiche, although many, many liberties have been taken with regards to plot and characters. It basically arose from me looking at P&P and going, "Well, this is great and all, but needs moar cross-dressing lesbians." Yeah, IDEK.

Summary: The first time they kiss is almost comical in its awkwardness.
Notes: This is sort of... an exercise in ~minimalism. I'm not entirely sure how successful it is.

Huh, apparently I get nervous about posting fic even when my betas have been super nice about it (<333 Jen and Steve!). Anyway, this is just a teeny tiny snippet of the fic I've been working on for the last couple of months for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang; the other 18000 words of it will be posted on 1st July.

So, the big Yuletide author reveal means I can finally talk about my stories. :D I wrote two; my main one was Whom You Leave Shackled By Love (Libba Bray - A Great and Terrible Beauty, Felicity/Pippa) and the Treat I wrote was lighting the fuse might result in a bang (Bend It Like Beckham, Jess/Jules). As is, I assume, the way of Yuletide, the Treat I knocked out at the last minute has over twice as many comments as the fic I spent ages over. XD But I put that down to the popularity of the fandoms rather than their relative quality, because... yeah. The Bend It Like Beckham piece is Not That Great.

For my first year, I have to say that I've had an awesome Yuletide experience. Received two great fics (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] mturtle and [livejournal.com profile] violetion!), wrote a fic I'm reasonably proud of and another that other people seemed to like, read a TON of great fics in fandoms I've never really touched before... AWESOME. And I can't wait to do it all over again next year. :D

I've been sitting on this fic for weeks, for no apparent reason, so I finally got round to doing a final edit and actually posting it. (I was thinking of waiting until the International Day of Femslash, but that's nine whole days away, and if I leave it that long I'll probably start to hate it again.)

Hurrah for Gossip Girl bringing my fic-writing mojo back! I actually managed to finish one and pluck up the courage to post it, which is a very rare occurrence for me. I'm hoping that it'll become less rare because I have a million and one fics swimming around my head.
