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

Every year I say thank you to my F-list by offering to write them ficlets as gifts. I may not have a perfect track record and I'm not terribly prompt about filling them, I admit, but it is one way I can show my appreciation to the people who have taken the time to read my fic throughout the year.

This is quite possibly the last year I will be offering this. As many of you probably noticed I pulled away from LJ in 2009 as far as socializing and commenting went and pretty much just stuck to writing fic and modding my comms. Next year I'll be pulling away even more so this is my way of showing that I do care, I just am not going to be able to invest the amount of time and energy into LJ as I used to.

Leave a comment on this post between Christmas and New Years Day and I'll respond with a 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.

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, 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, so my ability to fic them is limited.)

Warehouse 13, White Collar, Stargate Universe, House, Medium, Flashpoint, John Doe, Max Headroom, X Files, Charmed, The Pretender, Sandman

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 ficlet. Where's the bad there? ;-)

May you all have a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous, healthy and happy year in 2010.

Thank you for being my LJ friends.

I'd love a Torchwood ficlet that happened after Season 2, but before Children of Earth...this could be my first comment on your journal, so I better say something nice like, HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Torchwood for joeybug
Ianto hears Jack come up behind him in the Hub. He knows it's Jack. There's no one else it could be at this point.

Ianto turns a familiar black and white ball over and over in his hands, pensive.

"This was Owen's," he says, more to the empty room than to Jack. "Bastard broke almost a whole box of coffee cups kicking it about. He said 'Sorry!', but it was in that totally insincere tone that meant he wasn't sorry at all and then just kept on kicking the ball around." He puts the ball in a box of Owen's things he collected earlier with no one to pass them on to. "He was an arse most of the time, treated Tosh like crud even though she adored him and got Gwen to cheat on Rhys." His fingers linger, skimming the edge of the box without closing it. "He was a complete prat." The air is thick with vacant silence during the pause that follows. "So why does it hurt so bad that he's gone?" Ianto whispers.

"He was one of us," Jack answers simply. "You didn't have to like him, but he risked his life to help people same as you do, same as Tosh did. You have to respect someone willing to give up their life for the greater good."

"I have to wonder..." Ianto gazes down into the box, the random collection of a former life. "Will it be Gwen next? Or will she be boxing up my things to deliver to my sister, full of apology but no explanation?"

"Don't think like that." Jack steps forward, slipping his arms around Ianto, holding him close. "Let's just be here, now, together."

"Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow..." Ianto's voice trails off.

"Hey, it's what Owen would want." There's a hint of humor in Jack's voice and Ianto has to smile. Owen would have indeed wanted anything but a dour memorial full of long faces.

"So a pint then?" Ianto finally concedes.

"Along with some Indian food from Owen's favorite restaurant?" Jack suggests.

Ianto turns around in his arms, sinks into Jack's kiss, finding the comfort he needs in it.

"You buy dinner and drinks," he says, forcing his face to brighten for Jack. "And I'll see what I can do about coming up with some merry later."

Jack's smile is blinding and infectious in its joie de vivre. Life goes on for Jack differently than anyone else, yet it still goes on.

"You're on."

Awww, we'll miss you. :(

Merry Christmas, hon, and I hope that you don't go too far away! *clings*

Any chance you'll write Burn Notice/Leverage (Fiona & or / Parker)???
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on January 23rd, 2011 03:14 am (UTC)
Burn Notice/Leverage for wizefics
"Is he always like this?"

Fiona let out a bored sigh as she and Parker watched Nate rework the blueprints, trying to come up with an alternate approach.

"No, sometimes he likes to be prepared," Parker retorted, giggling to herself. At Fiona's glance she just waved a hand dismissively. "You get used to it, the waiting. Nate's good so it's worth it."

"If I had Michael and Sam to back me up I'd have been in and out already," Fiona huffed. "And what's with your Eliot that he's so upset with my hardware?"

"He doesn't like guns," Parker said with a shrug. "He just likes hitting people with his fists and stuff."

"How barbaric." Fiona held out her hands, examining her manicure. "I might break a nail doing that." She turned towards Nate at the table nearby and raised her voice so he could hear her. "Ford! Do I at least get to blow something up in this new plan?"

"Oh!" Parker raised her hand as if in school. "Can I jump off a building in this new plan?"

"That would be an improvement," Fiona remarked.

"I'd share my harness with you," Parker told her with a coy smile.

"Really?" Fiona met her eyes, smirking.

"Patience, ladies!" Nate intoned, not even looking up. "Planning takes time."

Fiona rose, flicking her eyes meaningfully between the loft bedroom upstairs and Parker until Parker smiled and rose as well.

"Take your time," Fiona called back after them as they headed for the stairs. "We're about to be busy for a while."

"Yeah, sure. Have fun," Nate answered, totally not paying attention.

At the top of the stairs Fiona hooked a finger in Parker's belt loop and tugged her close, meeting her mischievous eyes and responding with a devilish grin of her own.

"I plan to..."

I can has my Sweet Charity 'Miracles' story by New Years, right? (You asked me to remind you.) Thanks, hon! *g*
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on December 29th, 2009 03:04 am (UTC)

It's done save an edit pass so I'd like to send it to you tomorrow to read if that's okay. Do you have time? (It's like 20K so not a quick read. Hey, I may be insanely late but I wanted you to have a much more than just your money's worth.)

I just got the final art work for it today. YEE! /bounces/ I think you'll like it.

I'm very excited to finally have you read this story. You've been really patient with me - which I appreciate more than you know - but I've worked up a nice case fic for you with some lovely H/C to boot. ♥

*hugs and offers sparkling apple juice* Happy holidays!

I'm sorry to hear that, sweetie. Some of my best memories on LJ have been because of you, and I'll miss you when you're not here. But you have to do what's best for you. *hugs again*

You are still going to be around for Slashchat, right? 'Cause those wouldn't be half as much fun without you...

As for a prompt... how about Colby/Ian? It sounds crazy but I just want to see something nice and fluffy with them, maybe even domestic.

julietmjulietm on December 26th, 2009 03:00 pm (UTC)
Hey there sweetheart! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! *huggles

I think I'd like to read something Coop het. We just know he's on Santa's naughty list...and yeah, we pretty much want to keep him there. hahaha

Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jennie the Looney: Calvin Hobbes dancinguberniftacular on December 26th, 2009 03:25 pm (UTC)
So here's something I've been having a lot of trouble finding, and I was wondering if you might be able to help out. Do you think you could write a Charlie Eppes/Spencer Reid ficlet?

Also, I'm not sure if I've ever commented here before; if not, hi, and your fic rocks.
Jestana: House: House/Wilsonjestana on December 26th, 2009 03:32 pm (UTC)
Aw, I'm sorry you're not going to be around as much. *huggles* Take care of yourself. I do hope you'll be around for Slashchats at least.

As for a prompt, could you write House/Wilson from House, MD? "You are a kinky bastard, Wilson."

If that won't work, I'll gladly take Charlie/Colby: "Who knew that a mathmetician could have such a wicked mouth?"
gemmi999gemmi999 on December 26th, 2009 03:40 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna miss you, but I totally understand. And thank you for the gift!fic idea.

I want a dollhouse fic, set after the last epside (2x10) where the team does something teamy together. *g*

Thank you again!

Any particular reason you're pulling away from LJ? You're one of almost no people who will actually indulge my Dean/Paul fetish. :)

As for fic, ummmm... ooh! I know. Ellen and Jo seemed to be having fun testing Castiel in the last episode. What other wonders did they experiment with to see how Cas would react to them? (If there's romance/sex, want Jo/Cas.)
Dani: Jack smileumbralillium on December 26th, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC)
Merry Christmas, sweetie! Hope you and Mel had a good one. ^___^ I'd love a Numb3rs/White Collar crossover, characters and/or pairing of your choice.

Numb3rs/White Collar for Umbralillium
They had been online chess partners for decades, ever since they met at a match in a neighborhood park. The geeky professor had popped over to NYC, taking a break from Princeton, and found a near perfect match in Mozzie. They both played equally well but wildly different, so much so neither could ever reliably guess the other's moves in advance.

So as long as Mozzie could ensure a secure Internet connection, proxied through seven countries and over twice as many servers, they would play online: West Coast versus East Coast, New York cool versus laid back Cali.

And they'd talk... Mozzie appreciated someone being willing to hear out all his conspiracy theories, even if they didn't always agree at the end. Still, the short curly-haired man had become more than just an amusement and listening board over the years. He'd become a friend.

Of course, he still hoped he'd be able to one day turn Larry's art skills into a decent side business in forgeries, but the lure of cosmology seemed enough for Professor Fleinhardt. For now...

Aww, sweetpea, I'm sorry to hear that. I'll miss seeing you around here:(

Can I request a ficlet?

Numb3rs, Charlie/Billy, comfort fic - anything as long as Billy holds his hand to Charlie's face.


Numb3rs, Charlie/Don, waking up together

Happy Christmas my dear ♥

Please don't go! As far as I'm concerned you are the N3 fandom for me.

*MORE HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
