Yuletide reveal

Technically, one that I got in for Yuletide and one that I scraped into Yuletide madness-- as in, I literally posted it 2 minutes before the deadline.

I got matched on two Diana Wynne Jones books, Archer's Goon, which is one of my favourite books, ever.

Writing Notes: I sort of knew what I wanted to write, though not the exact details of the sections.

World Enough, and Time by jamjar

(5408 words) 

Fandom: Archer's Goon - Diana Wynne Jones

Rating: Gen

Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply

Characters: Erskine, Awful Sykes, Howard Sykes, Hathaway (Archer's Goon), Torquil (Archer's Goon)

Summary: The journey of a thousand miles (starts with sending your siblings to Alpha Centauri).





I also got matched on Fire And Hemlock, also by Diana Wynne Jones. One of the good things about yuletide is the excuse it gives you to go back and re-read something you haven't read in ages, remembering what you loved about it and finding whole new things to love (ask me about my new Polly headcanon!)

Writing Notes: Hah! One of those fic where you write bits -odd paragraphs, disconnected sections- but nothing that really links. Until, of course, it's past the deadline of the thing you intended. I just barely (literally 2 minutes before the deadline) managed to submit to the Yuletide Madness archive so the recipient could get it anon, but I didn't have time to get it beta-read (may try and do that and at least get any typos fixed later).

Dear Yuletide

You should write what gives you joy, so take all the things below as hopefully helpful ficprompts, rather than any hard and fast rules. It helps me writing to have a lot of stuff to work from, but if that's not true for you, go ahead and write what works.

Summary:

In conclusion, Grimglass (and the associated town of Grimglass Without) may be worth a visit, but only a brief one. The chief concern of the locals is the weather and the price of fish, not necessarily in that order.
