My holidays were super busy with family stuff so I've barely been on LJ at all, which means I didn't get a chance till now to rec the SUPER AMAZING FICS I GOT FOR YULETIDE.
My main fic was INSANELY PERFECTLY AIMED AT MY INTERESTS, because tearupthesky
got assigned to me for the second year in a row. Haha, poor kid. But she wrote me THE BEST PARKS & REC RON/LESLIE BABYFIC OMG YOU GUYS. Pancakes in the Age of Enlightenment
-- in which Ron gets Leslie pregnant in a one-night stand, and Leslie's going to raise it as a single mother, but then they fall in looooove. The Ron POV is crazy crazy amazing, and it's super funny and also gets me in my heart place. It perfectly combines how married Ron and Leslie are with how they drive each other crazy, and I want like a zillion sequels of them with their daughter, and nothing about this could be better. If you haven't read it yet you really need to. Personally I have read it A LOT.
I also got Seth/Amy SNL RPF where they go on a roadtrip (not here looking for absolution
by feartown) and Henry/Casey Party Down fic (Maple Syrup
by misura)! AND a little Madness vignette also of Ron/Leslie (Best Wife Ever
by foursweaterests)! Such awesome stuff, check those ones out too! I seriously can't believe I got something for all of my requests, people are so awesome.
I ended up writing two fics for Yuletide myself: Tammy Swanson-Swanson's What to Do after Divorce Seminar Featuring Leslie KnopeParks and Rec
. Tammy 2/Leslie. Rated R. ~6800 words. Written for Deifire, thanks to kyrafic
for beta duty!
In which Tammy 2 seduces Leslie to annoy Ron and also because she's bored and due for a sex romp. Write Your Name on the Earth in GasolineParty Down
RPF. Henry/Casey. Rated R. ~6300 words. Written for tearupthesky
because after writing fic for me for yuletide like every year she deserved a treat.
In which Casey gets on SNL and moves to New York and she and Henry have to figure out what to do.
(I wish I hadn't been writing this one at the last minute, because I would've liked to have had SO MUCH MORE SNL stuff, like, a million things about Casey and Nasim sharing an office and Sudeikis hitting on everybody but being secretly in love with Wiig, but she won't have any of it because he's so awful [haha I have a lot of head canon for that], buuuuut I mostly kept it to a Party Down story. I would like to congratulate the multiple people who totally guessed this was me -- I almost emailed/commented you guys to be like LOL GOOD JOB but then I decided to pretend to play it cool. But seriously, good job, I am very impressed, especially since I'm terrible at guessing anon fics!)
Both those fics were super fun to write, which was really nice for yuletide!
Happy New Year, everybody! I hope 2012 is amazing.
