Huh. AO3 tells me I've posted five fics so far this month. This can only mean one thing: I have been avoiding work!

Anyway, for the record, for purimgifts this year, I wrote two Sleepy Hollow fics (my first in the fandom) and one Sherlock fic. The rules of the exchange are that the stories need to be under 1,000 words, and, in honor of the holiday, must concern either 1)a Jewish character, 2) a female character, or 3) characters defeating an Evil Vizier. I like it best when I get matched so that I can write about Jewish characters, but I enjoy writing about ladies, too, as I did this year.

This year, I received a fascinating XMFC story, In Which Meir Kahane Gave Magneto a Bloody Nose (with parts 2 and 3). Two of my favorite things about XMFC are its exploration of Erik's uneasy relationship to his Jewish identity/heritage, and the way it maps mutant politics onto other issues of the twentieth century: this story does both!

nb: my other two March fics are a Rivers of London story and another Sherlock story, this one Sherlock/Mary.

I am off for work travel tomorrow, and won't really be back until 3/30. See y'all next month!
  • Don't forget True Detective - which I am reading now!
    • Ah, but that was February! Though of all of them, it's been the most read. What did you end up thinking of the series?

      • FEBRUARY? How is that possible? Was TD even airing back then? Gosh the months fly by.

        I loved the series more and more by degrees and everything was sort of more and more awesome as time went on, and I wasn't ready for it to end. I can't wait for the re-watch.
  • Catching up from months in and out...

    I accidentally misread the title of the Sherlock fic as "pets" instead of pests, and so for the first two bits thought you were talking about strays. I fully expected you to have John walk in with a kitten or puppy after Mary had spent all day chasing them away...right up until the third one started talking! ;-D</p>

    Happy belated...well, everything, at this point!

    • LOL! That would be a great fic to write at some point! Guess I should've been clearer about the ninja-type nature of the intruders.

      You too! Happy birthday!
