My story is set in the Vorkosiverse, about how Aral Vorkosigan and Oliver Jole got together:

The Entirely Beautiful

Hope you like it!

A Yuletide fic set during Tang Dynasty, the Wu Zetian era, about Shangguan Wan'er (here's the English Wikipedia link to the woman). I wonder if English speakers find Chinese fanfic based on Western movies and TV shows (or ancient Roman history) as strange as I find English fic based on Chinese history.

But the fic is well-written and filled with poetry. So here:

Syriana Bryan/Nasir fic! I wasn't expecting this fandom at all, since when I check the who's offering which fandom list by [community profile] yuletide, no one has signed on to do it. So I'm just really happy right now. And it's such a great story, too.

Click here for some Syriana Bryan/Nasir slash! :D

Finished and posted last week. Decided to change the title, then the purge happened. Couldn't find fic again until I reposted the whole thing, under a different title. And had to delete the first post, with the wrong title. But at least I'm done now.

The only thing to do now is to wait for the reveal. So looking forward to it.

Can't believe it's already another year, but here we go:

Dear Yuletide Writer:

This year I'm requesting Krámpack/Nico and Dani, Syriana, Front Cover and Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

Some of the following will have been copied and pasted from last year's details, I hope you don't mind.

Krampack/Nico and Dani
Basically I thought that Dani was a bit of a cock tease, but that's his prerogative as a teenager, and really, he looked so young that I was a bit squicked. So I imagine him all grown up, meeting Julian again (at some writer conference, maybe?) and discovering that Julian still want him, and well, sex ensues. But you don't really have to follow that; let's just get Dani to above 18 when they meet again and I'm fine.

It's such a small fandom that I'm grateful enough if you're even writing in it, so I'm just hoping for some slash between Bryan and Nasir.

Front Cover
It's a fairly new movie, so I'd understand if you skip it. However, if you have somehow miraculously seen it, I'd love some more interaction between Ryan and Ning. Omnia amour vincit, I hope. Or excellent sex, 'cause Ryan doesn't disappoint, I bet, LOL.

Lord John series/Outlander
I'd be happy as a clam as long as you've got Lord John. Just please don't make John dwell on Jamie. Mentioning him is fine, but I don't like to think of John pining for anyone, poor boy.

Thank you so much for doing this.

All the best,
little Alex
60 Essential Science Fiction & Fantasy Reads

Science fiction and fantasy are booming across multiple types of media these days: television, superhero films with strong SFF elements, and gaming are all enjoying a solid boost from science fiction and fantasy concepts. But what types of stories led us to this excellent time to be a SFF fan? What books inspired and entertained us until we reached this moment? Here are 60 of some important and thought-providing texts from science fiction and fantasy's long history.

These are books which many people loved, that created new fans, entertained old ones, or renewed someone's love of genre.

Got this from [personal profile] james_davis_nicoll; bold the ones you've read:

I finished my Yuletide story (yesterday)! I thought it'd take a lot longer, but nope, I just kept writing.

Off to beta it goes.
