Happy Christmas eve, everybody! As usual my grandparents are visiting my family with all the attendant 'fun' that that entails, but I wanted to pop on here and wish you all a very merry Christmas and sort out a few items of business that fell by the wayside during workaggeddon.

1. Like many others, I have blown the dust of my old Dreamwidth account. I'm giefu over there- I'm already friends with [ profile] rionaleonhart, and if you have an account, I'd love to see you over there too!

2. Community is awesome and I am late to the party as per usual. I mainlined at least two episodes a day for two weeks and have developed a crush on Abed, it's insane.

3. I finished the main quest on Skyrim and am still dragging Erik the Slayer around in lieu of actually marrying him (he's bugged, alas).

4. Tumblr has eaten my life. Send help.

I have been wanting to do this for a long time! Okay, so as it is Halloween and all things spoooooky are in order, I thought I'd share some original fiction I wrote about three years ago. I like writing horror a lot, and when I write outside of fandom it's my comfort zone, so to speak. I love to do with words what artists like Emily Carroll manage in pictures. Sometimes I even manage it within fandom, although that's rare! re-reading it, I still think this short story is pretty good. I don't think I've ever really matched this again, so it's nice to put it out here and share it with all of you.

The poem is 'Saturday Market' by Charlotte Mew. I have omitted the second stanza for brevity.

Bury your heart in some deep green hollow

Or hide it up in a kind old tree;

Better still, give it the swallow

When she goes over the sea.

Title: Santa Baby
Author: [ profile] thewaterbandit 
Character(s) or Pairing(s): The Doctor, Amy, Rory
Rating: G
Summary: [ profile] flying_girl73 asked for 'the Doctor and some of his companions (and maybe enemies) do a Secret Santa'. I'm afraid I fiddled with it a little bit because Christmas shopping has been on my mind lately! Rory, Amy and the Doctor all go about Christmas shopping in their own ways.

And oh, hey fanfic mojo! I think I may be on the way to getting you back!

Christmas was a tricky time in the TARDIS. )

Halfway through Carol!fic- it's about 3,000 words now. Those that know me can appreciate that, for me, this is touching on epic length. Hope it'll be done in time for Christmas D: Please send help.

In other news, I made a Wordle for my blog and the results are rather amusing:

I like the little 'CRAP' that appears in there. For some reason it seems very appropriate :P

Here's an excerpt of something I'm currently working on in between dissertation stuff:

"You will be visited-" began France, but England cut him off.

"Don't tell me you came all the way across the Channel just to play silly buggers-"

"YOU WILL BE VISITED," France repeated, louder and shaking his chains for emphasis, "By three spirits..."

England makes such a great Scrooge it's almost scary.
