I received an excellent story that was everything I ever wanted in Princeless fic:

you never left my thoughts (1324 words) by doctorcakeray
Fandom: Princeless
Rating: General Audiences

Relationships: Adrienne Ashe/Raven Xingtao

It's been years since Adrienne has seen Raven. She's realized a few things since then. A few very important things.


There’s a journal, beaten up with bent in corners, traveled miles and miles and miles from a lonely little tower, a page marred with “STUPID PARENTS” in Adrienne’s big chunky sprawl. In another, slightly newer, journal, in the same lettering, a page of Adrienne’s diary reads “STUPID ME.”

And an excellent treat that is a Lovelace & Babbage/Babbage RPF crossover that is about my FAVORITE RL Babbage anecdote:

How can you fight crime if you haven't properly studied its source?

For yuletide, I wrote a story that is completely unlike any of my previous yuletide stories, in that it's a) based on something that is not a book, and b) porn. I really liked having the motivation to stretch myself, though, even if porn is still really hard. :P Here's to actually finishing some of my porn wips in the new year.

Rewatching the movie with my recip's prompt in mind really made me notice stuff about the movie, and especially the treatment of splices, that had rung with me on the first viewing, but then I'd sort of forgotten about over the course of reading all the excellent fanfic about Jupiter and Caine being fluffy together. Specifically, the scene between Caine and Jupiter after the bureaucracy montage, when she comes on to him again, and he says 'no', and she backs down like she hadn't even considering anything other than taking his no for an answer? So yeah. That's a lot of where this came from. (Also that scene with Titus & the floating orgy, ngl. I suspect my freefall sex mechanics weren't quite right but it's not real freefall it's fake orgy room freefall, right?)

Caine Wise had forgotten how to be a splice and not a person.

I decided that this year I was going to be less ridiculous and try not to read the whole archive before reveals, I was just going to read one fandom per letter of the alphabet. ....I got through 1/3 of the letters.

Anyway, if you want my YT recs for Imperial Radch, Jupiter Ascending, Kings, Loki: Agent of Asgard, the Martian, Nimona, Over the Garden Wall, Princeless, [and I didn't know any Q fandoms], they're at the top of my AO3 bookmarks right now.

Some day I will get around to reading other yt fandoms.

Howeve, the Christmas season is for HL fic, and the [ profile] hlh_shortcuts exchange will never die, so I have a bunch of wonderful new Highlander stories to read; that fest hasn't revealed yet and if you're an HL person you should definitely go look.
