Yule Reveals

I didn't do a guessing game this year, because I have proved to be bad at follow-up.

I wrote four fics this year - original assignment, two pinch hits and a treat. I'm working on another treat that turned into a NYR, so I'll link that in a separate post when it's done.

Two Time Travelling Archaeologists Walk into a Bar (11239 words) by hhertzof
Chapters: 8/8
Fandom: Gallifrey (Big Finish Audio), Sarah Jane Smith (Big Finish Audio), Bernice Summerfield (Big Finish Audio), Doctor Who: Virgin New Adventures - Various Authors, Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Jason Kane/Bernice Summerfield
Characters: Jason Kane, Bernice Summerfield, Sarah Jane Smith, Irving Braxiatel, Romana II, Leela (Doctor Who), River Song, Eleventh Doctor, Narvin (Doctor Who)

Two time travelling archaeologists, getting drunk, telling stories and piecing together the past and the future. As one does.

My longest ever Yuletide fic. I didn't intend for it to get this long, but these things happen. The original prompt involved going back to happier times at the Braxiatel collection and what I ended up writing was fix-it fic to, well, fix everything that had gone wrong. Also, River meeting Benny, which doesn't happen often enough in fic. Along the way, it got tangled up with Sarah Jane. [personal profile] paranoidangel betaed this one and helped me figure out where I was going wrong. This fic would have been a mess without her.

A Place to Call Your Own (3388 words) by hhertzof
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Chrestomanci - Diana Wynne Jones
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Janet Chant, Julia Chant, Millie | Millie Chant, Mordecai Roberts | Tacroy, Roger Chant, Miss Rosalie, Christopher Chant

Janet's got a brand new life in a magical castle, just like she always wanted, so why does she feel like she's not what they wanted?

I love Janet and DWJ just glosses over how she adjusts to Chrestomanci castle, so I loved writing about that and especially about Janet figuring out a non-magical way to save Chrestomanci. I also enjoyed looking up chemical reactions with silver. Don't try this at home - I handwaved the issues, but the whole chemical reaction would have been dangerous even without Christopher's silver issues. Thanks to NightsMistress for the beta.

Moomintroll in Autumn (3873 words) by hhertzof
Chapters: 5/5
Fandom: Mumintroll | Moomins Series - Tove Jansson, Winnie-the-Pooh - A. A. Milne
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Mumintrollet | Moomintroll, Snusmumriken | Snufkin, Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger (Winnie-the-Pooh), Piglet (Winnie-the-Pooh), Rabbit (Winnie-the-Pooh), Eeyore, Kanga (Winnie-the-Pooh), Roo (Winnie-the-Pooh), Muminmamman | Moominmamma

In which Snufkin and Moomintroll embark on a journey together and meet some new friends.

This was originally just going to be a travel story up into the mountains with Snufkin and Moomintroll, but I just got a wall decal map of the Hundred Acre Wood and started thinking, what if? dhauna helped with both tone and beta.

One Ring (1427 words) by hhertzof
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sarah Jane Adventures, Warehouse 13
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Clyde Langer, Rani Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith, Steve Jinks, Claudia Donovan, Artie Nielsen

Claudia and Steve trace an artifact to Bannerman Road.

I missed two different pinch hits that would have worked for this idea, saved the second and ended up writing it at the last minute as a treat. It's an idea I'd been toying around with for a while and there is more where that came from. I have to write the 1897 Diamond Jubilee crisis which involved Warehouse 12, Madame Vastra, Jenny and I suspect Francesca Latimer from the DW Christmas special. And there's a longer story about the ring. And Sarah Jane's friendship with H.G. Oh, and the whole Sarah Jane being recruited as a regent thing.... This was last minute, so it's unbetaed.

I hope everyone loved their gifts/assignments as much as I did this year. It's been a brilliant Yuletide and I can't wait to do it all again next year.
