There are about 23 stories in 22 fandoms, and they are all good, and almost all small fandoms, interestingly - I think my story and the Star Trek one are the largest fandoms in the fest. The only duplication is two Eagle stories, but c'mon, when you've got a canon wolf cub... there's also an amazingly amazing Frontier Wolf story (have I mentioned recently how much I love that Sutcliff's Roman Britain has a fandom now? And that it has the soulbonded wolves it's always cried out for?)
Anyway, here's mine:
The Proper Study of Wolfkind by melannen
Length: 4763 words, 3/3 chapters (for now)
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle
Notes: I really really wanted to be able to tag this Watson⋄Holmes, Holmes♣Watson♣OWC, which probably says all sorts of bad things about me. You give me a challenge which comes down to "psychic soulbonds make them have sex" and I write a story where psychic soulbonds make them not have sex. Also, this follows canon pretty closely (with the addition of Watson's soulbonded psychic she-wolf, obviously) including a fair amount of direct quotations. The three chapters up occur during STUD, SIGN, and SCAN; I have chapters outlined for alternate HOUN, FINA and EMPT (which really covers all the essential Holmes & Watson canon) but may or may not ever write them.
Summary: Often, strangers would look at me, with my cane and my wolfsister, and either understand nothing about us at all, or think they understood far too much. The young man with the test tube only shook my hand, with a strength I should hardly have credited him, and said, "You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive."
...Should I mention how deeply saddened I am that none of the proposed BBC Sherlock + soulbonded wolves stories came through? I mean I figured my story would be buried under at least three modern-day AUs. It really is odd how heavy on small fandoms the collection currently is. Awesome, but odd!
(I have another soulbonded wolves story about 1500 words in, all written in the last three days since I suddenly found myself hijacked by my latest fannish enthusiasm. We'll see if that one gets finished, either. I'll just mention that I may possibly be the only person who has re-written the 1929 Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War to take into account soulbonded wolves.)
ETA: Also, if you read the SH story when it first went up on the Archive, I added another chapter of ~2000 words after it went up last night, so it comes to a bit more of a conclusion now.
