Fests, fics, and fandoms

Hello, hello! I've had new friends arrive recently from the Yuletide friending meme, hi, new friends! And hi, old ones, because I've been a bit random about posting. I try to become more frequent again. Today's post is just about recent fanfic fests and fics I've received and written. Which reminds me, I finally managed to finish my Chocolate Box letter the other day, so if anyone wants to take a look, here it is!

Fandoms are Doctor Who, Torchwood, Wayfarers, Parasol Protectorate, and Finishing School. Lots of prompts for various relationships! There probably are more fandoms I could have requested, but considering how long the letter turned out, it's no doubt good I didn't. And I was trying to be brief. Ish.

Anyway, [community profile] fandom_stocking went live this week, and I got many lovely gifts in mine. I got several lovely fics, of the Doctor Who and Torchwood kind; by [personal profile] trobadora, [personal profile] navaan, as well as [personal profile] marginalia, [personal profile] missanotherboat, [personal profile] firefly124 and [personal profile] angelus2hot. Do check them out! Also, I got three ballet icons by [personal profile] kate, suitable for a beginner dancer like myself as I had hoped, so now I have some appropriate icons for rambling about my ballet classes; also, book recs from [personal profile] cornerofmadness (a considerable bunch of LGBT themed sf/f recs!) and [personal profile] dunderklumpen; as well as fan art and greetings.

I managed three fics myself; naturally not all that I wanted to write, but still, three. And I'm learning how to make stories comparatively short, ie. around 1,000 words. Here are the stories I wrote.

for [personal profile] nenya_kanadka:
A Spray of Water Falling on a Wave (909 words) by AuroraCloud
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Heather (Doctor Who: The Pilot)/Bill Potts
Characters: Bill Potts, Heather (Doctor Who: The Pilot)
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Canon Lesbian Relationship, Canon Lesbian Character, Post-Episode: s10e12 The Doctor Falls, Fandom Stocking 2017
Summary: A moment in the life and space travels of Bill Potts and Heather, after.</p>

(I was so happy to get around to writing my first Bill fic! I hope there are more to come!)

Then this, for [personal profile] trobadora:
A Lady Is Always Ready (907 words) by AuroraCloud
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Thirteenth Doctor/Missy
Characters: Thirteenth Doctor, Missy (Doctor Who)
Additional Tags: Post-Episode: 2017 Xmas Twice Upon A Time
Summary: It was embarrassing to lose her TARDIS for such a long time. It was even more embarrassing that when she found the TARDIS again, Missy was standing outside.</p>

(Waah, I can't resist writing Thirteen/Missy, and we've only had two words from Thirteen in canon!)

And finally, for [personal profile] chamilet:

Through the Dark (1167 words) by AuroraCloud
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Torchwood
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Characters: Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones
Additional Tags: Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Post-Year That Never Was, Nightmares, Fandom Stocking 2017, Touching
Summary: Though that year never was, it comes back to haunt Jack. It's a good thing he isn't alone this night.</p>

I also posted another Jack/Ianto fic recently, but it's not up on AO3 yet. It was for [community profile] torchwood_fest; the prompts were winter and Christmas themed, and while I don't usually work with Christmas or other holiday themed prompts (winter, for sure, I am a Finn after all) this story came to me and I was rather happy with myself for managing something not terribly fluffy out of the prompt "holiday treats". When the fest closes, I'll put it up on AO3 as well, but for now, here have the link to the journal posts:

Taste of Spice by AuroraCloud: Dreamwidth post / Livejournal post
Summary: On a dark December evening, Ianto Jones is hardly in a festive mood, and his relationship with Jack is just confusing. Still, there can be unexpected benefits to spicy cakes.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Word Count: 2790
Rating: Teen
Genre: Angst, Romance
Notes: Takes place late-ish in S1; after They Keep Killing Suzie but before Out Of Time

I was quite happy the way this turned out, personally. The fest was originally supposed to end last weekend, but it was extended, so we'll see if I have time to edit the other Torchwood fic lying on my computer. I hope so, the world needs more Tosh femslash...

On a final fannish note, I started watching Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries tonight, and I think I'm in love. With the series and especially with Miss Fisher.
