gwyn: (yuletide lights)
[personal profile] gwyn
For the second Yuletide in a row (I skipped last year, but this happened in 2014), I am the lucky recipient of three, count 'em THREE stories. I have no idea what the hell I ever did to deserve this bounty, but I am thrilled--and one of them is 32K, and I'm only partway through because I'm the slowest fucking reader in the world--work hazard, I have to be--and did I mention it's a glorious 32K? That's just…so freaking amazing I can't believe it. I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SO LUCKY.

The Android story is just…OMG. Full of delicious puns and paper geekery and just…it's utter genius. GENIUS.

And someone took my love of Colin Shea from What's Your Number? and TJ Hammond from Political Animals and gave them a sex history together! I made a mention in my 2014 letter that I thought Colin could maybe switch teams for TJ and so this is aces.

I am sinking into and letting the 32K What's Your Number? fic unfold for me and I am really resenting like hell the fact that I have to work--I got two projects in this past week and could there be worse timing? I don't think so, because all I want to do is sink into this.

My story's not exactly going gangbusters, and my recipient still hasn't said anything (I guess I'm not surprised, all things considered). So I have the flop sweat, but whatever, I enjoyed thinking about it and talking about it with a couple people so that's what matters most, I guess.

Anyways. Look at my bounty, look:

I'm so glad you got three Yuletide stories!

My recipient doesn't seem to have checked in with the archive yet either, but I'm hopeful that they might do so tomorrow. :-)
