I myself am workin' on fic and hangin' with an online bud or two and getting drunk-called by another online bud and it's really kind of a nice way to ring it in, y'know?
*hugs all the f-list*
But the purpose of this post is twofold:
Firstly, to SQUEE over all the fun I've had with the Yuletide ficathon in this, my very first year! I received as my gift-fic a marvelous little piece called No Man's Land, for one of my very favorite books, Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog. The fic captures the characters and atmosphere of the book wonderfully, and it's written from the POV of Verity, which made me glee mightily. I don't know who wrote it just yet, nor can I say anything about the story I wrote, because the authors are kept anonymous from the time the archive opens on Christmas Eve until sometime New Year's morning. So I'll be in the dark for several more hours. *impatient bounce* But do check out the archive and leave some comments for the writers. And sign up next year to join the fun!
My fic has gotten some lovely comments, I'm pleased to say. And a rec! *faints*
And secondly, I wanted to let you guys know that I'll be making an LJ-related Announcement later today. *giggles and rubs hands together* Yes, I'm announcing an announcement. Your point? ;)
While I'm here, I might as well toss in a meme from starbuck92:
