Yuletide Fairy on AO3!


If you are wanting to post a story for yuletide as Yuletide Fairy, because the mask is totally shareable *G*, here are a couple of ways to do so, based purely on my theoretical knowledge of the archive workings and not as yet tested in reality.

1. You can name [archiveofourown.org profile] yuletidefairy as a co-author and drop me a request to take your name off it (this is how proxy posting is occurring). Downside: I get to know who you are.

2. You can create a pseud of "yuletide fairy" or what have you associated to your account, post your story with said pseud, and then orphan the story, removing your username from it.

Mmmm yuletide.


Yuletide Fairy is the People

*dies laughing*

Right, so, Yuletide Fairy is the people! Multiple personages posted anonymously under this sock this year, a matter of great hilarity to me. So if you want to guess who the Yuletide Fairy is, you'll have to tell me what story she wrote for you!

I (primary sock-holder) admit to writing 3 this year; 1 story I know the author of, 1 I suspect, 1 I cannot confirm or deny any knowledge of, and 1 I have no freaking clue. Isn't it exciting?

Oh dear.

I wrote a story in a fandom I hadn't consumed all the canon for. I still haven't, but I've gotten a bit farther than I had when I wrote the story.

I've been... I'm not sure this is the appropriate term when I'm consuming a source after it has closed? But nonetheless, regarding my fannish production vs my fannish consumption: I've been Kripked.

They went there.

This is why I was afraid of writing it before I finished consuming the source.

OTOH: Ahahahahahaha the canon pretty. Hee.


omg, self, "vaguely canon-compliant" means you can make shit up already.

to the nearest 5,000 words...

It is three in the morning, I have work tomorrow, more pinch-hits and treats than I know what to do with, and the bastards I am writing at this particular moment want a romance.

I had better get out of this story at under 5,000 words.


Pinch-hitting: now with more vomiting.

You know, I was thinking about calling in sick for yuletide tomorrow. Now I have a legitimate excuse to do so. On the other hand, I'm also actually sick, so I think some of my stories are getting shorter.

*rubs hands together*

Got myself a pinch-hit in this last flurry.

Going to have to reabsorb some canon. Damn.


Caught up reading skimming yuletide letters. Have tagged 50 requests in 42 fandoms. A couple of which I have not previously consumed.

Oh, yuletide.

Santa letters, goat letters

Assignments have been out for about two hours and I have 5 letters earmarked for "I could write that..."

I looked over the list of stuff I started and didn't finish last year, and there's two that I kind of want to continue, even though I know at least one of the requesters requested other fandoms this year. It would be, er, a highly unexpected gift?

Chocolate pomegranate goat's cheesecake

Bernard made me bake tonight.

Chocolate pomegranate goat's cheesecake

2 cups ground walnuts
2 tbsp honey

4 cups (32 oz) soft goat's milk cheese (chèvre)
4 eggs
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp flour
about 3/4 to 7/8 cup honey
about 1 cup of pomegranate seeds
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix ground walnuts and honey, spread on bottom of springform pan.

Mix cheese and eggs. Add lemon juice, flour, and honey. Fold in pomegranate seeds.

Separate off 1 1/2 cup batter in another bowl. Mix with melted chocolate chips.

Layer white and chocolate batters in springform pan. Marble with a knife.

Bake at 325°F for an hour; turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven an additional half hour.

Cool before eating.

Could be made completely cow-free by using unadulerated chocolate and some extra honey; could be made gluten-free by dropping out the flour (flour makes it a New York cheesecake, which is not a necessity of cheesecakeness).
