Yuletide 2012 Reveal

I actually drafted this post at like 5AM in a bout of sleeplessness and boredom, FYI, so hi from the stream of consciousness. Also, Happy New Year, all! I think it's 2013 everywhere. That's four different digits. Sure is fun up here, woop woop. Apple juice is tasty. I still have a cold.

Come to think of it, I wish my mom was around to make me tteokguk right now. Maybe I'll acquire some in Manhattan if anything is open today. I mean, I could always try and make ha ha, procure some on the lunar New Year, according to actual tradition, but we always ended up eating it on the solar New Year and sort of slinking off in the direction of Chinese celebrations come lunar because they throw grander parties and a Korean hates to be overshadowed. :P In conclusion: nooo come to me tteokguk whyyy

For Yuletide this year I ended up writing two pre-canon backstory fics:

For scuttlesworth: All Souls, Johannes Cabal, PG, Johannes Cabal & Horst Cabal, 8335 words: In which a German schoolboy misplaces his brother.

For [personal profile] relia: John Childermass's Last Employer, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, PG, John Childermass/Gilbert Norrell, 12574 words: To the city of York, in the year of our Lord 1780, there came a young man who had fallen upon hard times.

Both very different and challenging prompts. Thanks to [personal profile] nextian for beta on "Last Employer" and [personal profile] kaianos and [personal profile] corialis for beta on both fics; I really couldn't have done without you guys. ♥

ETA: I can't get [personal profile] kaianos's username right on literally any platform, apparently.

Oh, jeez, that Cabal fic! I haven't even thought about the books in forever, but that was great. Nothing like Johannes and Horst saving each other, in their horrible way.

Okay, I definitely merged those two strikethroughs into "Johannes and Leonie bickering adventures incestuous idfic", which meant I spent a minute thinking frantically 'DID I MISS A SCENE WHERE IT WAS REVEALED THAT THEY WERE SECRET HALF-SIBLINGS?? HOW COULD I POSSIBLY FORGET THAT. my heart is given new and terrible life', etc., but anyway yes, concur. If they aren't going to bone, let them be tiny and dreadful instead.

Awksome. Awe-ward. It would have won an awe-ward! From… me. But yeah, I am familiar with…….. the sensation……………. ideally one would have both. Ideally, the books would have one of those kinkmemes that churns out beautiful multichapter AUs and strangely involved Inception fusions and slow-burn telepathy fic. Haha, imagine Johannes beginning to hear Horst's voice in his head long after the sunshine hit! Hahahaha. Ha.
