Two yuletide gifts.

And you know what's even better than that?

Getting thank you comments for the stories I wrote before I was even awake enough to read my own gifts. Yay for happy recipients. 


My gifts, let me show you them:

To Roam Between Stars
(2757 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Abigail Brand/Carol Danvers, Carol Danvers/Janet Van Dyne, Abigail Brand/Carol Danvers/Janet Van Dyne
Characters: Abigail Brand, Janet Van Dyne, Carol Danvers, Nick Fury

Abigail Brand is a minor character on A:EMH which is the brightest most colourful amazing animated series about the Avengers, and this story is about her growing up and coming to join the Avengers.  In her brief appearances on the show, Abigail impressed me with her competence and ruthlessness, and this story expands on that.

Fandom: Werewolf Marines - Lia Silver
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Echo (Werewolf Marines), Charlie (Werewolf Marines)
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Sister-Sister Relationship, Storytelling, Yuletide Treat, Misses Clause Challenge

I have enthused before about the Werewolf Marines series, and this is a lovely "prequel" to the book about Echo, filling in more about Charlie and with very evident sisterly affection.  I particularly liked the use of Little Women fanfic inside the story, and I only regret that it's so long since I read Little Women that I'm probably missing some of the context.



I'm now busy downloading every story in the archive that looks like My Kind Of Thing to my phone so I can read it safely anonymous there, as I for sure will not get through them all in the week before they are revealed.

I fell asleep sometime after midnight.  At some point after that Nico woke up and came into my bed.  Charles woke me up at 5am, but was persuaded to go away again.  And at 6am.  And at 7am.   At 8am I finally felt ready to wake up properly.

Nico got much more into opening his stocking this year; Charles mostly resisted the urge to play with all his brother's stocking-contents as well as his own.  As last year, I put the (excessive number of) presents behind the fireguard in front of the unused fire to keep them out of curious toddler hands.  Mid-morning there was a little present avalanche and the fireguard fell over.  We put it back up up but further out from the fire, and left the presents where they had slid.

I'm wearing a tshirt with Olaf from Frozen, with the slogan "I'm All Out Of Shape".  We've had a mellow morning eating treat breakfasts and too much chocolate, and Nico playing Let It Go and dancing/singing along.  Now Tony has made the salmon-on-bread and poured the bucks fizz.  Charles is wearing a Santa hat and preparing to hand out presents, and all is well with the world inside my home.
