Ugh why does January 1st have to be followed by January 2nd. January 1st was really nice, I read fic and watched Camp and hung out with [tumblr.com profile] toujoursgai singing bits of the Sound of Music and eating ciabatta and feta and stealing all her movies. I'm the only member of my team in the office other than my manager, this sucks. ALSO one of the other editors sent round an email while I was away to say she'd just quit because she was moving to Europe for a year. MY LIFE IS SO POINTLESS.

*coughcough* anyway, so Yuletide author reveals happened. I really wanted to do treats this year, I guess, since even though I didn't get my assignment done till right before I had to go away, I then spent the next day at work plotting out two different treat ficlets, and wrote them both that night instead of packing.

Chihayafuru | Shinobu/Chihaya | 3900 words | teen
In the last year of elementary school, one of the most promising young karuta prodigies of the decade transferred to a new school in Tokyo. From Kyoto. (Canon Divergence AU.)

Notes: Actually really hard! I find it so difficult to get a hold of Chihaya's motivations, especially. I think because she's a really internal character, but in a really non-verbal way? Maybe it would have been easier to write her from her own POV, I don't know. A Chihaya-POV would have been the more natural choice for this conceit - swapping out Arata for Shinobu as the one to teach Chihaya karuta - but Shinobu was my recipient's favourite character, so I wanted to make it her story.

Probably it just needed to be longer; canon-divergence AUs do, really. Still, I'm quite pleased with it.

Ookiku Furikabutte | Abe/Mihashi | 1700 words | teen
It took Abe longer than it should have to realise that when he touched Mihashi now, Mihashi shivered and stuttered and just about fell apart.

Notes: Lol this is so shamelessly not!ficcy. I actually had a bunch of notes already, for the beginning part of it, but they were all character motivation, not story, and when I wrote the fic I essentially just threw the notes at the page and scribbled around them.

Encore for [personal profile] eglantiere
No. 6 | Shion/Nezumi | 1500 words | teen
Shion wasn't prepared for it to be such a replica of the first time.

Notes: So zero thought and insight and originality went into this one, it was late and I was just kind of typing FEELINGS ABOUT SHION AND NEZUMI AND REUNION YES, but I think it's actually the best-formed of the three, structurally. Or at least it's my favourite, maybe. It was also fun to write for someone I know, I haven't done that in a while :)
