drunktuesdays: ([COMM] i will NEVER DIE)
Boy do I feel like I have so much to tell you about but I always forget everything as soon as I open Livejournal.

First things first, let me tell you a storyabout nailpolish )

Anywho, it is YULETIDE REVEALS which I was ESPECIALLY anxious for this year, because I wrote something that I feel simultaneously proud of and crazy nervous.

My recipient was [livejournal.com profile] ishie who I love and knew from her 30 Rock stories. We matched on Downton Abbey, which I was excited to try to write, and THEN I read her request and her first prompt was for Mary/Carlisle and I was like WHAT? Who would even SHIP THAT, he's clearly a gigantic feelings challenged asshole!!

But then I couldn't stop THINKING about it, and as I was talking it out with [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek I actually totally talked myself into it. What really got me going was Ishie specifically asking for "wounding each other and reluctant affection and bitterness and grudging admiration" and I was like, yes, I love ALL of that stuff as well, and really, Mary is sort of a gigantic feelings challenged asshole herself.

Once I started going, I didn't stop and I wrote 6K in basically a week. It's the longest thing I've ever written, and I think it's the best thing I've ever written as well. I knew it wasn't going to be as popular as Mary/Matthew stories are, but I was HUMONGOUS caught up on whether Ishie would like it, and she did! So it was a success for me!

So anyways, if you wanted to read it, it's called Take Care!

Then I watched the Christmas special and cut for spoilers )

My Yuletide gift was a Community story from Eli called Mercurial Adventures in Chemistry and it is GEN about my favorite group of dummies on television. Wicked pleased!

And now I am going to sit quietly and recover from the straight up punishment I delivered to my liver, and wash the lipstick stains off my rack. Happy New Year, guys!
