Weather is cray y'all! A foot of snow yesterday, bloody cold today, in the low forties by the weekend.

Getting back into the swing of things, with a new (and improved!) calendar number. Wrapping up 2013, here's my last story of the old year, for yuletide:

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (1978)
Rating: General Audiences

The only resolution I'm making this year - I never make resolutions, it's a self-love thing - is to try and get more words out. I'm having them all the time, but they get stuck in my fingers. Finishing is a consummation devoutly to be wished.sn

Internets, bless me, for I have gafiated. It has been three weeks since my last update. I needed to disconnect for a little bit after the holiday, but now I'mma try to hook back in.

Which means that I never got round to posting my 2012 fic roundup, or linking to my yuletide fic. So here's that:

for Yuletide, I wrote:
Other creatures that have eyes (4090 words) by lotesse
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (1978)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Boomer/Athena, Apollo/Starbuck
Characters: Boomer, Lieutenant Athena, Dietra, Captain Apollo, Lieutenant Starbuck, Commander Adama, Colonel Tigh

Boomer didn't often see the stars this way, although he flew among them daily; in a Viper space was segmented by tylinium plates and dark duralumin bars, broken into panes like oldfashioned glass windows.

I had a fun writing year, if a bit stop-and-go. (I'm not going to do a link list here, because I think the AO3 has started to obviate that convention; it's no longer hard to find an author's recent output listed chronologically!) I wrote in a megafandom for the first time since forever, and had awesome fun with the Avengers. That was awesome, I should write some more of that sometime. I think I'm most happy with Alive in your blood now, which said some things about the Vorkosigan saga and family and honor and progressive politics that are really important to me. Final fic stats: 11 stories, 33,552 words.

I also learned how to podfic, and am working on the vidding thing, so yay for new skillsets!

Goals for this next year: to finish and post some of the really large quantities of Prydain and original Star Wars words that have been accumulating on my hard drive.

A clip from The Streets of San Francisco, featuring Mark Hamill and Richard Hatch (being rather handsy, actch!). Why is the whole of this episode apparently not on the internet?! My google-fu has failed me - but this is still pretty amazing.

So, okay, I am no longer quite so blue and fragile, but I am still badly out of touch with fannish squee. Idk why, but all of my post-yuletide writing projects are languishing and I'm not writing and argh. And I think part of it is that I miss being in an active fandom? Where people'll ramble about the sourcetext in a communally squeeful kind of way? So I'm going to ramble and squee about some things, and if you're feeling it squee back mmkay? Also there are picspams, because yay picspams right?

Battlestar Galactica Classic )

Hmm - I seem to being doing classic-style media fandoms at present? Which is funny because between Radclyffe Hall and George Eliot and also rereading stuff from the Brontës' Angria and Gondal games my non-media brain is very girl-centric at present. Maybe that's why I can't write! Anyway, off to watch more pretty boys on my screen - bugger productivity tonight.

In conclusion, I love yuletide. I love the story I received - Being His Father, Battlestar Galactica Classic gen babyfic - and I love all the other stories, and and and I love you all. My recs are going straight to delicious this year, so they're all over there if anyone's interested. And I did end up writing two Madness stories, which was great fun as always.

I'm still home in Michigan, up in the cold and the snow, rereading Middlemarch and missing my Boy. I'm so ready for this year to turn over, and be ended, and get a clean new one without any mistakes in it, as Anne Shirley would say.

I saw The King's Speech on Christmas Day, which was totally unspeakably lovely. Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle had a scene together! Which is not the point, but still made me unreasonably happy. In terms of the actual movie - oh, the hurt/comfortosity! Total love.

Thank you for writing a story for me!

I'm a happy-ending kind of girl. I like stories about people in love, sexual or otherwise - stories where people care for and help one another. It satisfies my idealistic streak. I do love angst, oh do I ever, but I kind of need happy endings afterward. h/c is probably my biggest kink. I'm also really into family-of-choice tropes and stories about strong or passionate emotional intimacy.

I like female characters really a lot. Not all of my requests center directly on women, but it's important to me that narrative spaces reflect gender parity/equity, or specifically condemn the lack thereof in more realistically patriarchal 'verses. I like non-standard sexualities and imaginative modes of sexual engagement. Similarly, cultural diversity that opens up the imaginative space of the canon makes me seriously happy. There's no reason why kyriarchal western values, images, mores, or cultural practices need to rule speculative stories that are fairytales or take place in outer space!

Thank you so much, everyone, for the birthday wishes; you guys made my day. I've been surviving, I guess, in my Texas exile. Job training is too boring to be believed, but not particularly painful, and at any rate I'm halfway done now, and I've only got three more days until I'm home again.

I've been reading Adrienne Rich and watching Battlestar Galactica Classic and crying over the little girl from Detroit who was murdered by the cops and swallowing down sinking feelings over the Texas School Board's decision that slavery ought to be referred to as the Atlantic Triangle Trade, and I just. I'm having one of those evenings when the world is simultaneously too filled with good emotions and too jam-packed with horror.

Tomorrow will be another new day. Have a poem to end this one:

I've been making The Boy watch through Classic Battlestar Galactica on Hulu with me, and falling in love with the show all over again. I had a thing for it back in high school; somehow it totally feel through the cracks in my fanbrain until now. I've got tiny little hearts love for it. Love that is full of sighs and nerdery. Seriously passionate love.

Apparently, I've got surprising amounts of things to say about this show. Who knew? )
