Holiday Gifts for My F-List  
Happy Holidays to all!

I know I've not been particularly present on LJ this year and while this makes me a bad LJ friend, I still do care about the kind people on my F-list who have made my online existence a haven over the years.

While I am still behind on past years, I am still going ahead with my traditional holiday thank you to my F-list, offering to write short fic as gifts. Some years it takes me the whole year to get most of them done, some longer. But I do care and I do want to do this for my friends.

Last year I said this might be the last year. I'll say it again this year since I'm really not sure where my future is heading. I went back to college full time (and by full time I mean HOMG what were you THINKING taking that many units?) and I've had health issues (pretty par for the course for me sadly) so I haven't had as much time as I used to for ficcing, for keeping up on other people's LJs and even keeping in contact. (As of this writing I've got over 5,000 unread messages in my inbox and even my mother was berating me for not being in contact since my birthday in October - that's how bad it's been as far as me nose down in my books.) Yes, my 4.0 is important to me and my future, but at least this is some small way of saying you - my LJ friends - are important to me as well, even if I suck at showing my appreciation to you regularly.

Leave a comment on this post between Christmas and New Years Day and I'll respond with a haiku, microfic or ficlet just for you. Here's my recently expanded published fandom list for you to choose from. You may pick a single fandom or two to crossover. Gen, Het, Slash, Cest are all available as are crossover pairings.

Numb3rs, Supernatural, Heroes, Criminal Minds, The Unit, Psych, Bones, Miracles, Brimstone, Cupid, Blood Ties, Primeval, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly, Burn Notice, Dollhouse, Leverage, The Mentalist, Castle, White Collar, Lie to Me, Covert Affairs, Angel, Buffy

I haven't written/published the fandoms listed below, but if you're interested I'll give them a go too. (Please note that I haven't seen every episode of many fandoms listed on this post, even my official ones, so my ability to fic them is limited. Also please try not to spoil me too much in your requests. Thx!)

Warehouse 13, John Doe, Max Headroom, X Files, Charmed, The Pretender, Sandman, Sherlock (BBC)/Sherlock Holmes (RDJ Movie), Star Trek: Reboot, Star Trek: TNG, Stargate Atlantis/SG-1/Universe, Homicide:LOTS, Jericho, Witchblade, The Dead Zone

Lurkers! Consider this your annual amnesty!

For those of you who read for the fic without ever commenting, if you were ever going to delurk, now's the perfect time to do it. Say hi, leave me a ♥ - whatever you feel comfortable with. If you have my LJ friended leave me a fandom and I'll write you a little ficcy present. What do you have to lose? I promise I don't won't bite. ;-)

May you all have a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous, healthy and happy year in 2011.

Thank you for being my LJ friends.

melissima: WCSWmelissima on December 27th, 2010 04:03 am (UTC)

Thank you for everything you do to make LJ a great place to be (even when you're "not around": modding ficfinishing, comoding numb3rs100, supporting various comms and fandoms with fic, shepherding and midwifing fic for me and others, etc etc etc.)

You are awesome.

Because I am the queen of dithering, I will give you two options, not to be confused with a demand for two fics:

1.) Charlie meets Auggie


2.) Penelope meets Auggie

First they discover how awesome he is, then they meet him in person and discover how hot he is.

So many possible requests... /evil twiddle fingers/

I believe I would like White Collar, Peter/Neal, Prompt: "What were you thinking?"
Jennie the Looney: CM: Reid frogfaceuberniftacular on December 27th, 2010 04:23 am (UTC)
Criminal Minds/Numb3rs, Charlie/Reid please?

Subject matter is up to you, as I can't think of a good prompt.

...I am not Emma, and you don't know me at all, but I just had to say -- yay Charlie\Reid \o/ !
melissima: Garcia sweatergirlmelissima on December 27th, 2010 04:30 am (UTC)

and also here: Like Minds a little Charlie/Spenser to tide you over while you're waiting.
Jennie the Looney: CM: Diana crazyuberniftacular on December 27th, 2010 04:47 am (UTC)
I've read that one before, actually (one of the few Charlie/Reid fics on the internet). But it's been a while, so thanks for reminding me of it...always up for a re-read of good fic!
Jennie the Looney: CM: Reid shenanigansuberniftacular on December 27th, 2010 04:44 am (UTC)
I totally ship them like woah, and it's SO HARD to find fic of them.
a cat named Tempestisabeau on December 27th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
Hi! You are awesome ♥ And I am bad about telling you that as much as I should.

And I have a bizarre urge for Neal (WC) / Henry (BT). I may have requested this at some point in slashchat too, I don't remember, but.

Or else Neal / Patrick Jane (Mentalist). (two conmen... that would totally not be noncon ;D)

(As with Mel's, this is not a request for two fics! this is just giving you options because options are good)
melissima: Henry yummy by <lj user=scandalouslymoi>melissima on December 27th, 2010 04:26 am (UTC)

Happy Holidays!

I don't know if I could make my request because you may not be caught up on SPN?
Ashcat: White Collar: Mozzie and Nealphotoash on December 27th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
That is such a sweet offer!! I hate to add to your work load though. Good luck with your next semester and finding time to balance it with work and play :)

(if you want to give me a sentence I'd love something with Neal and Mozzie from WC)
rubynye: Enterpriserubynye on December 27th, 2010 04:27 am (UTC)
You're not a bad friend, you're a busy and accomplished woman. :D And I'm glad you're my friend.

If you wanted to crossover NUMB3RS and Star Trek Reboot I would not mind at all.

Numb3rs/Star Trek Reboot for RubyNye
To say that Nyota has a talented tongue would not only be a bad pun, it would do her a great disservice.

Nyota has an amazing tongue.

Amita's cadet uniform is half on, half off - mostly just pushed aside to accommodate Nyota's ravenous mouth laving on her dusky pink nipples and nibbling away the disintegrating panties Nyota made her wear to class so she'd writhe in anticipate all the way through advanced astrophysics and warp theory too.

She's aching for more, for those slender brown fingers to slide inside her waiting slickness - that space inside her that needs to be filled even as the last of the panties dissolve over her mound and that slippery tongue slides between her folds seeking out sweet flesh.

She reaches out, wanting... something. Bare skin... Handfuls of that long dark hair... But no, Nyota's still neat as a pin - uniform unwrinkled, hair still pulled back in a perfect ponytail. She's always the one in control and Amita knows she likes few things better than to see Amita surrender everything to her.

Hands still searching, she gives up and uses them to caress her own breasts, licking her thumbs to rub the nipples wet and hard. Her back arches in surprised delight when Nyota breaches her, three fingers almost hurting but wonderfully thick against her tight walls.

The ride seems to go on forever. Amita can't catch a breath, her body receiving no respite from the constant stimulation, the tension growing past what she thinks she can bear and beyond.

And then it breaks and she's floating... It's better than the anti-gravity training. It's blissful and free and Amita feels disconnected from all the material things touching her, yet one with the distant stars and every atom in the universe.

With a crash she comes back down into her body, thrashing hard. Nyota doesn't let up until she's sure Amita's really finished, but always stops before it's really too much. In the end Amita's body quivers with the remnants of the adrenaline rush, her golden skin glowing with sweat and a single drop that glides down from her heated temple to her sex-mussed hair on the pillow of Nyota's bunk.

She has nothing left, not a proton's worth of energy.

But wait until tomorrow.

Tomorrow she'll take charge and make a pretty mess of Nyota and her precious control.

And they'll both love every minute of it.

EEEEEEE! *bounces and hugs you* So I just got back from my vacation, and was digging out my inbox, and found this pornographic pearl buried in there like a hidden treasure, just sexier. Oh, this is screen-licking good. Thank you, so, so much!

Re: Numb3rs/Star Trek Reboot for RubyNye
You're welcome, hon! /smishes/

I hoped it would be a lovely little discovery in your inbox.

Only you, my dear, could inspire me to come up with the breathtaking pairing of Nyota/Amita. Thank you!!!

Doctor Who Fic for Juliet316
It's wrong, Jack's wrong. Every fiber of his 900 year old plus being screams out that kissing Jack is a very bad idea, but The Doctor has his fists buried in the lapels of that long military coat like the universe depends on it and maybe right now, for him, it does. He pours all his guilt and shame and angst into the kiss but all Jack does is reflect back love and adoration and eternal respect.

When The Doctor finally pulls back he almost wants to bolt, get back in the TARDIS and pretend it never happened or go back in time to try to make it never exist. But instead he looks at Jack, fists still clutching fabric, and searches for something in his one time lover's eyes that says that Jack never thought of them as one time unless that one time was all of time and space.

When all he gets in return is invitation The Doctor dives in once more, kissing Jack breathless and filling himself with the goodness he thought once lost.

He's regenerated before, but now, with Jack, he thinks he knows what resurrection feels like.

*hugs* You are insane for taking so many classes, but also fabulous for going back to school at all. *snuggles*

If you could, I'd love to see a BBC!Sherlock/Torchwood crossover. Thanks muchly for what fic you've managed to write.

*GLOMPS* Merry belated Christmas, darling! You're insane for taking so many units, but we love you anyway.

Could I maybe possibly have Leverage/Lie to Me? Hardison/Loker if you can swing it, gen if you can't get them to cooperate. ^__^

Tamannaswingandswirl on December 27th, 2010 07:44 am (UTC)
Echoing Mel- thank you for everything you do. You make my life brighter just by being in it. (Also? Please do not ever take that many units again. When the grad student is cringing at your workload, you've got problems. Also, we miss you. ♥)

You could write anything and I'd love it, just because it's you. But I wouldn't say no to coming-out fic. Coming out fic with Colby and Ian to be precise. :D

Also, bb, is there anything I can write you? Just a small token of appreciation for how awesome you are. *hugs*
Tamannaswingandswirl on December 28th, 2010 01:05 pm (UTC)
Just adding a second option, in case your Muse is feeling as ornery as mine is at the moment- Colby/Ian again, but this time? Angst. Make me cry, Emma. Because you write sad!fic so well...

Numb3rs for Swingandswirl
This isn't how he planned it.

Colby never wanted to come out. Back in Idaho he made his decision: live a normal life, don't get your ass kicked or worse for being gay.

And then he met Ian. Ian wasn't out so much as he kept himself a mystery. No one knew what he was into - at all. Ian didn't let anyone in and that's the way he liked it.

So when he approached Colby, the star struck soldier in him was so flummoxed it took him a while to realize it was an actual date Ian wanted and not just to grab a drink after a case. That realization just made him more flummoxed.

Somehow Ian understood and downgraded the invitation to something he could handle - grab a beer at a cop bar. No one would think anything of it.

But Colby did. And the next time Ian came into town he was ready.

Six months later the key to Colby's apartment was on Ian's keychain. He still bitched about crap hotels at the office, but any night he was in Southern California, it was in Colby's bed, his arms, his life.

Ian respected his need to not tell. Colby... He just hated having that need.

So he told himself that as of New Year's his resolution would be to finally live his real life in public- to not hide anymore.

December can be cold even in LA and Colby feels a chill now, deeper than any he experienced back home in the snows of Idaho. It's the chill that comes from being truly alone.

Don places the folded flag on Colby's lap; he knew but never said.

Now it's too late.

A hero's funeral for the strongest man Colby's ever known: the man who was not only brave enough to face down the most dangerous killers, he was brave enough to live his life authentically, without fear.

The only fear Colby knows is how he's going to live the rest of his life alone, without the man who stole his heart and changed his life forever.

Someone hands him a rose to put on the coffin - Nikki perhaps. He stands and stares at the polished wood for so long everyone else just leaves.

Tears fall unheeded from his eyes and the flag weighs him down like an anvil, like it wants him to join Ian in the cold ground.

"I love you," he says aloud, suddenly wishing there were people left to hear him finally say it.

He lays his rose on the coffin with a trembling hand and finally stops fighting the breakdown that's been working its way to the surface.

And then David is there, his partner, right beside him.

He cries for the man he loved, the man he lost and the life they could have had together.

It gets cooler as the sun goes down, but David stays with him until there's nothing left but a shell to drive home and tuck into an empty bed.

And even then, David stays.

It isn't how Colby planned it, but coming out to David that night is one of the best things he's ever done.

He thinks Ian, wherever he is, would approve.

Re: Numb3rs for Swingandswirl

Oh, Colby. /hugs tight/

Damn you, Emma. I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. Because I can't even imagine what Colby must be going through, to finally summon up the courage to live his life only to have Ian ripped away from him so suddenly. And his team's knowledge and silent support just twisted the knife even worse.

Brava, Emma. You managed to shatter my heart into a million little bitty pieces with just a few words. But I forgive you, mostly, because of the shred of hope you added there at the end. /pets Colby/ Ian's gone, but hopefully he'll be able to find a measure of happiness with David.

Thank you, Emma, for this gorgeous, gorgeous fic. Even if you did make me cry. /hugs before going to write some nice fluffy fluff/
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on July 9th, 2011 06:55 pm (UTC)
Re: Numb3rs for Swingandswirl
Not that it's any consolation, but I had tears running down my face writing this fic. You did ask and I did deliver, but gah! I'm glad I had the sudden inspiration to add David at the end. He was unplanned, but such a relief to know Colby wasn't going to really wind up alone in his grief.

Thanks for the lovely promptage my dear. I firmly believe one of the great things about fiction is its ability to help us access our emotions and writing this one certainly worked for me.

No fic request, just a squishy hug and warmest wishes for the new year.

Numb3rs for Devon99
They don't get many moments like this, but they relish them when they do.

A lazy warm Sunday spent lounging around means Charlie's curly head pillowed on Don's broad chest as Don's fingers thread lovingly through the curls.

Don loves it when Charlie falls asleep on him; it's one of the few times he gets to see him completely at peace. He gazes down at the beloved face and relishes the sweet contented smile that's there even in slumber. He knows he's the reason for that smile and it warms him inside just as much as the small body against his heats his larger frame.

Don inevitably falls asleep too. There's something so comforting about holding a lover in one's arms... Everything feels right with the world, no one needs him to be anything or do anything... It's just a moment that's for them alone.

Eventually they will wake to sleepy kisses and the rest of their day, but it's quiet moments like this that Don feels his love for Charlie the strongest.

You know just having you around being yourself is a good thing. And you've been so good this year supporting WC100. I should be writing you fic for that.
Karen: wc neal yellow stripebyrons_brain on December 27th, 2010 03:43 pm (UTC)
LOL I vote Henry (Bloodties)/Neal (White Collar) prompt Neal gets caught admiring one of Henry's portraits (well that's his excuse)...

As it's Christmas, go on prompt me....
patch_tankpatch_tank on December 28th, 2010 10:55 am (UTC)
Emma!!! *big hugs* it's so good to see you back on LJ your fics are still my absolute favourites :) Well done on going back to college, that's a serious commitment!

If your muse is in a Criminal Minds-ish mood someday, could you write a lil piece of Morgan/Garcia gen cuteness?
Candi: Colby Granger Superheromustangcandi on December 30th, 2010 12:24 am (UTC)
*hugs* Thanks for the offering of fic. Just glad to see you!!

Hope your next semester isn't as grueling.

I'd say my only fic request is more Ian/Nikki. LOL. I miss them. Been thinking of a video for them or something. I don't know. Even if you just want to finish Merlot Red sometime in the new year, that will be more than present enough for me.

*more hugs* Happy New Year!!

Numb3rs for MustangCandi
"Is it on?"

Ian shook his head at Nikki and reached over to remove the camera lens cover.

"Yes, it's on. It's recording right now. It's recording the carpet," he admonished, tipping it up so she could see his sly grin on the camcorder viewfinder, "You have to actually do the point part of point and shoot, you know."

"Hey, you bought me the camcorder but not a Video for Dummies book," Nikki teased, trying to center Ian's face on the tiny screen - an action made more difficult by the amount of wine she'd enjoyed already that night. She'd gotten some great wine as gifts from Don and Robin and from Charlie and Amita so she'd wasted no time opening them up. Ian just seemed to have a better tolerance for alcohol than she did, damn him.

"That's because you're not a dummy," he told her, pushing the camera aside long enough to kiss her. She refocused on him, testing the zoom by pulling back to get his entire body on the screen.

Despite it being December Ian still had a decent amount of tan to augment his own native coloring. She loved the juxtaposition of his caramel color against her own mocha hue, loved the taste of his salty skin on her tongue.

"You know, you forgot your last present," she purred, setting the running camcorder on the coffee table pointed in their direction.

"Oh?" Ian looked around, but amidst the detritus of wrapping paper no unopened boxes could be found. "Where..."

Before he could finish Nikki laid back onto the thick rug, beckoning to Ian with a crooked finger.

"Happy Christmas, lover..."

I know I am past the date for the ficcing, but I wanted to say (belatedly) that you are lovely, and it always makes me happy to see your posts when you have the time to make them. I wish you all the best in this new year, with your school and your health and your writing! You are wonderful.
