Count it the greatest sin to prefer life to honour,
and for the sake of living to lose what makes life worth living.

Posting this a bit post-reveal, but this was my fic for Yuletide. Good for an excuse to re-watch the movie!

Dear Yuletide,

Sorry this is late, I hope it's still useful!

Everything below is because it helps me when I have some idea of who I'm writing for, but really, the main thing is just to have fun writing it. That said...

Rating: General Audiences

Characters: George Bunning, Søndergaard (Double Acts)
Summary:

Puffins are not native to the southern atlantic, and neither are Danish penguin observers or British members of the foreign office. Still, home is what you make of it...




Honestly, this was just such a nice canon to revist (most John Finnemore stuff is). Anyone that hasn't listened to them, I very much recommend them.

I can also recommend the advantages of a fandom where all the canon is one half-hour episode of a radio show (well, and what the internet can tell me about the history of South Georgia and arctic research).

My entire household is flailing, giggling, flailing, it’s all exclaimation marks and vindictive, gleeful looking at where the tories lost, wiith only a brief interlude to explain to barely-awake Housemate Two what a hung parliament and three line whip means.

There’s a lot, and I don’t know what it’ll all mean tomorrow, but this is just-- like, the last few elections have been so awful, and this one, I was expecting to be... well, not quite as destructive as 2015, but close. And it isn’t! And I’m in, and from, one of the safest Labour seats in the country, so safe Labour didn’t even bother campaigning here, and we still went up in votes! And the tories lost, like, Cantabury and South Portsmouth and places where they’ve been for *longer than the labour part has existed* - like, over a hundred years, they’ve held them! But not anymore!

Just realised I didn't do this last year, so below is my 2016 Yuletide entry.

Fandom: Wolf 359 (Radio)
Rating: General Audiences

Summary: #16: Make-do-and-mend: the key to managing with fixed resources is careful use and occasional reckless improvisation - Pryce and Carter's Deep Space Survival Procedure and Protocol Manual

Writing Notes: Don't pick fandoms with open canon, that's still being updated until pretty much the same day as your Yuletide is due. Seriously, I think the last episode of Season 3 was the 19th, and Yuletide was due in the same day? Something stupid like that.
jamjar: Happy Hogswatch! (Seasonal:Hogswatch)

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).

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.

I'm off til after Christmas. Dear yuletide (and anyone else that tries to get in touch), if I haven't commented yet, it's because I'm where the only words are on paper and the internet does not go.

Wow, I haven't updated in so long. I didn't even post last year's Yuletide fic!
