I was thrilled to discover that the fic I received in the yuletide exchange, Home and Away, was written by dafnagreer. The sneaky wench managed to keep this a secret until the reveal through cunning misdirection. The fic is a wonderful John Barrowman/David Tennant RPS that includes every little tid-bit I could have asked for including mentions of the Barrowman/Gill doggies and Eve Myles' breasts. The depiction of Scott is so great, in that he's no innocent and absolutely no "victim" of infidelity. I absolutely adore this fic. Barring a MASSIVE RPS squick, I'd totally encourage everyone to go read it and leave a comment. It's NOT particularly graphic.

No Return and No Deposit for themistoklis.
This was a bit of a departure for me. Pundit RPS featuring Shepard Smith and Jonathan Hunt of Fox News. It also includes references to Anderson Cooper, Keith Olbermann, Glenn Beck et al. I'm really happy with how it came out, but it was definitely a challenge to get there. Special thanks to vanillafluffy for Beta services.
Just Enough for AR.
More in my usual line...Keith Olbermann/Rachel Maddow.
Yes, I finally went there, and it came out kind of sad and angsty.
It Had To Be You for thefourthvine
I didn't get the official pinch-hit on this one, but I couldn't resist the prompt. Thanks again to vanillafluffy for holding my hand and reassuring me that I wasn't committing massive race!fail in my attempts to avoid anachronism. There were two other fics written to the same prompt, so if you're a fan of the movie, I suggest checking them all out.
A Mythbuster's Christmas for drunken_hedghog.
My turn to be a sneaky wench! I grabbed the pinch-hit for a pal and managed to keep the secret. I was really worried about this for any number of reasons, including the abject failure of my last attempt at Mythbusters fic and the request that the writer "go easy" on the RPS. For me this is a pretty fluffy/schmoopy sentimental fic. Feel free to point and laugh as my angsty/hard-boiled image goes crashing to the ground.
Thanks to michelleann68, filthgoblin, and 51stcenturyfox for last minute beta assistance and savemoony just for being a gmail buddy during the whole process.
Pimping my peeps. (If you're reading this and I missed you---again with the head-slap.)
Yuletide fics by my friends and folks who came by to participate in the post-Yuletide Support Group. Comments have been especially light all around this year as people adjust to the new server, so if any of these are fandoms you're familiar with, or if you just want to try something new and spread a little post-Yuletide joy, please give it a shot.
