AAAAAAAAHHHH! Someone nominated Takin' Over the Asylum for Yuletide. I know this is no guarantee there will be fic, but where there's existence in the tagset, there's hope.

(I wonder why Rosalie's character tag is "Rosalie (Takin' Over the Asylum)" and not "Rosalie Garrety"?)

I see that someone has nominated last year's TV series of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for [community profile] yuletide. That could be interesting, if anyone takes it up.

(wow, it's within 1 character of tag length limit!)

Would anybody reading this be willing to nominate Takin' Over the Asylum for this year's Yuletide? (Nominations open on Sept 8th - see schedule here) I wheedled [personal profile] elf into doing it last year, but it didn't get any takers, and it's not on her list of fandoms she's considering for this year (I don't really blame her).
There's a couple other odds and ends here, such as a Doctor Who wallpaper, but here's the three ficlets I received:

Forwards by [personal profile] marginaliana
Severus Snape, Tenth Doctor, 716 words, gen, G

Rules Are Made to Be Bent by [personal profile] angenoir
Severus/Regulus, 526 words, fluffy, G

Mud pies by [profile] redsnsnake05
Child Severus, Eileen, 355 words, gen, G

Hell Is
Fandom: Mystery Science Theater 3000
Pairing/Characters: Dr. Forrester, Joel, Dr. Erhardt, TV's Frank
Rating: Teen
Words: 5017

Author's summary: It takes a lifetime to build a reputation, and only a moment to wreck it. But Dr. Forrester may yet find interesting things in the rubble.

“This invention,” she said, her gaze leveled directly at his furtive eyes. “It is yours?”

He could lie. And who could stop him? Joel? No one would believe the janitor's word over Forrester's. History hung within his reach. It was not meant for the likes of Joel.

“Oh, yes,” said Forrester. “Certainly.”


Meet Again On Separate Paths
Fandom: The Neverending Story
Pairing/Characters: Atreyu/Empress, Bastian, Carl Coreander (the bookshop owner)
Rating: Teen
Words: 2789

Author's summary: Bastian wants to find a way back, but Fantasia isn't just going to wait.

"Bastian." Mr. Coreander reaches out and rests a hand on Bastian's shoulder. "What have I told you? The doors to Fantasia can't be forced. Auryn will find you when the time is right."


Two for Tea
Fandom: Questionable Content
Pairing/Characters: Faye/Bubbles, Momo, May, Marten, Claire, Pintsize, Dora, Tai, Hannelore
Rating: General Audiences
Words: 2166

Author's summary: Faye and Bubbles open a tea shop. Hilarity ensues.

MOMO: I will attempt to use terms you understand. Faye and Bubbles protected you from Corpse Witch, saved you from the cops, and rescued you from an extremely dire situation involving three rogue AIs and an EMP. You owe them your ass. Now go inside and smell some tea.

MAY: Did you just say “ass”? For me?
MOMO, blushing furiously: You are an extremely bad influence!


On This 'Ane Night
Fandom: Discworld
Pairing/Characters: Granny Aching, Granny Weatherwax
Rating: General Audiences
Words: 2319

Author's summary: Granny Weatherwax is blown off course and meets Granny Aching.

Granny Aching strode back and sat herself down on her previous rock picking the conversation up, just where it had left off. “Not the moon, and you know well,that’s not what I meant Mistress Weatherwax. Nay, you’re an edge witch, the other edge.”

Granny nodded. “They call Nanny Ogg for the difficult births. I’m the one wakened for the difficult deaths.”


Gytha and Esme's Ill-Advised Adventure
Fandom: Discworld
Pairing/Characters: Gytha Ogg, Esmerelda Weatherwax
Rating: General Audiences
Words: 3708

Author's summary: 80's movies don't happen in the Ramtops, but if they did they would probably look like this.

"Esme Weatherwax! You were spyin?"

"I was in the area!" Esme protested. "It's not my fault my ears could hear!"

There was a certain hook to that that made Gytha pause, hands on her hips. "Esmerelda Weatherwax, you was borrowing? Whose ears heard that? An without that someone knowing! What if you got stuck?" Again, Gytha didn't add, because she valued their friendship and Esme did not like to be reminded about that week she spent as a rabbit.


It's a Neighborly Day in This Beautywood
Fandom: "A House I Pass on the Way to Work Has This Sculpture in its Yard" (see also this version with some additional sections)
Pairing/Characters: Antler Guy, Steve, Sharon
Rating: Teen
Words: 2998

Author's summary: The Old One, The Sleeping Beast, Seeker of Blood and Devourer of Souls, Haunting Abomination of the Darkened Woods, woke to find his sacred grounds were no longer there. The new ways are more than a bit confusing, but there's no reason an ancient god can't adapt with the times.

“Hello!” one of the humans said, thrusting an object into his hands. Sweat was beading on her temples as she looked up (and up and up—he really had overdone his height a touch) at him, but the only concession she made to her mounting fear was to take a step backwards. “I—that is, my husband and I—we saw you'd moved to the neighborhood.”

“Overnight,” the apparent husband added darkly. His voice was tight and choked.

“Right. And I know it's a bit early in the morning for lasagna, but I thought we'd bring some over and come say hello. Never too soon to meet your neighbors, right?”

Awww. I got all excited for a minute when I saw three anon fics in a row turn up in the AO3 Black Books feed, which is usually not a very active feed and said "Yuletide" to me, but seems like no one decided to take up the request for Takin' Over the Asylum. :-/

eeeee [personal profile] elf nominated Takin' Over the Asylum for Yuletide! Maybe it will actually result in some fic being generated?
(hope [ profile] lost_spook doesn't mind me borrowing the pimping image!)

A multifandom commentfest for tiny to medium British fandoms of all kinds. All fanworks welcome. (Click on the banner for the link.)

(I put in a plea for Takin' Over the Asylum here. I checked last year whether it counted as "British" and was okayed, so. I'm not quite a fandom of one, because people have heard of it over on Tumblr and you spot occasional fics, but it's so often used only for "Teninch" fic crossing over with Billie Piper characters, typically Rose, that I pine for either gen that stays within its own canon or shipfic that makes use of OCs instead.)
Man, I am so lazy about actually making rec posts. These have been building up for quite a while, so strap in:

Nine from [ profile] hoggywartyxmas: Read more... )


Two art recs from [ profile] severus_snape fest: Read more... )


Six from Yuletide/Yuletide Madness: Read more... )


And lastly, two miscellaneous: Read more... )

I has a sad. Granted, the thing I posted in [ profile] knowmefirst's [community profile] fandom_stocking wasn't so wonderful, but I haven't gotten any reply, even a cursory "Thanks." OTOH, it seems like maybe they entirely forgot that they even had a stocking, since they haven't replied to anyone...

Woohoo! I just posted 187 words of Snape fic in someone's stocking on [community profile] fandom_stocking. Not exactly my most scintillating work, but I'm not totally useless! I didn't only ask to receive and not give anything at all in return! woo!

(My stocking, if anyone feels the urge.)

Here's my stocking on [community profile] fandom_stocking if anyone feels up to leaving me anything. I'm going to try to put treats in some others this year, too.
