I was honored with three! Thery are all excellent and I love them! Two of them were very last minute additions, the last of twhich literally appered in the ten minutes before the collection closed and I'd left work :V

Chosen

Mama Loi Papa Loi - Exuma (Song) (Share wasn't enabled on this one)

-I finally got a fic for Mama Loi, Papa Loi! VICTORY :V And it is cool, too - it is set in London, and it is about a little girl whose parents are dead, but who has a caretaker and a mysterious benefctor uncle...

First we lift our swords to heaven (1360 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: L'Assasymphonie - Florent Mothe (Song)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Additional Tags: Bitterness, Music, Inspired by Music, Treat, Jukebox Fanworks Exchange, Obsession, Female Characters
Summary:

Yas Delit is a composer who enjoys the patronage of the King.

Trouble is, she is a revolutionary at heart.


-This one is all about revolution and political dissent through music. I liked the main character a lot, probably because of her resentment and her efforts to undermine the society she feels shackled to.

Quest's End

Brun - Garmarna (Song) (share also not on this one... hmmm, interesting! I now have Additional Suspicions...)

-This is a reaaaaaaally interesting take on this song, where not only does the maiden manage to get the better of Brun, the man who was going to murder her as he had several others, but their contest is part of a much longer epic. Her role, if not less passive, exactly, is more premeditated. It has a really great atmosphere, and as much as I love the others, I think this one hist the most of my buttons. I was positively *spoiled* this year, all told - and the collection is full of other excellent stories as well! YOu shoudl go check them out!

And that was my yuletide..... other than all the reading I've done in both collections! I wish I had more time as I'd have loved to make a proper recs post before reveals, but that doesn't seem to have happened :/ Maybe after? There are just so many great stories to chose from, though! I guess we'd better all get reading...

Jukebox!

Jukebox is open - it has been for a while, and author reveals are tomorrow I think! This is really one of my favourite exchanges - reading through everything is like reading through a themed anthology, and there are so many really good fascinating stories to get through! I could probably narrow down a top 5 (or 10 >.>) if I tried *really hard*!

I will talk about the things I wrote once reveals go live, but for now I will squee about my story! :D :D :D

I finally got my Invisible Light fic! And it is wonderfully creepy and I love it! It seems like it could be creepy in a very mundane way.... but maybe not. It made me think a little bit of like... Patricia Highsmith meets Neil Gaiman, maybe ^_^ I am super pleased with it!

On top of that, there were several songs that other people got stories for that either I had nominated or requested or both, so I feel like I kind of made out like a bandit just on those alone! And then there are just so many really cool stories based on things I barely knew at all before this... And there are playlists to listen to and a table of songs and lyrics and all sorts of other things that just make it a fantastic experience all around. A++ would recommend to anyone! I think I will try and pimp it harder next year, but we'll see :)

I feel like I have not had a chance to be properly excited about Yuletide this year - I'm travelling, visiting a house full of toddlers where I don't have a room of my own to hide in, so I haven't had as much time to read around, and had to furtively read all (!!! So many!) my gifts furtively while everyone else was distracted. And they I got horribly ill, because toddlers. But I am feeling better now (though the toddlers are sick)! And I got So many!!! delightful stories that I need to share them :D And then I can get on with trying to do some other reading :)
