1. The same someone who left nice comments on my S&S fic a couple of weeks ago, has now also done some lovely fanart of Snow White, Blood Red over on their Deviant Art. Nobody's ever tried to illustrate my fics before, so I am all aflail at this & so pleased that she liked it that much. (I liked that one, too.)

2. It seems to be Yuletide already, oh noes... Trying to narrow down nominations is always the difficult bit. Do I want this hopelessly obscure British TV show or that one? How do I secretly manage to persuade someone to write James Maxwell fic for me? (I know, I can't, but people have twice now. It has unduly encouraged me.) Will anyone else nom the things I hope they will? Or in short, here we go again in the lead up to what is always my very favourite fandom event of the year. \o/

3. I still have an unfinished Fandom Stocking/NYR WIP. Whoops. Maybe if I can stop doing family history now and get my spoons back? MAYBE.

4. Other important things I have forgotten. Sorry. Also not yet much commenting, sorry. Soon. (It takes a while to get back to properly functioning levels if I do stuff like the Newspaper Archive searching. But I need to post).

Well, it did go live, and even though I think it may have been quieter than some years, I got rather a lot of nice things in my stocking!

[personal profile] liadtbunny wrote me Public Eye fic, If I had a Million Pounds and posted a small picspam of James Maxwell from a thing called The Prison. (It looks like a great source for if I wanted Copper-related pics of him.) I also had a picspam from [personal profile] dunderklumpen, who went to all the trouble of finding pics of my random favourite old TV actors for me here.

Clocket made me a brilliant bit of art of Frank Marker; [personal profile] finisterre made me some old TV icons & [personal profile] rosied found me a link to a huge list of genealogy blogs, so I should be able to find something interesting in there.

Also there was more fic! It's been a bumper holiday season for Sapphire & Steel, that's for certain.

I had The Bright Side of Time (Silver, Sapphire, the TARDIS, Clara & Twelve) by [personal profile] kaffyr, Something Hungry Under the Stone (Silver) by [personal profile] annariel, and Just Passing Through (Silver/Liz) by [personal profile] john_amend_all.

Thank you, everyone! ♥

I did manage to write three little ficlets, as follows under the cut, but I'm sorry I couldn't do more!

Ficlets in New Tricks, OUaT & Historical RPF )

1. [livejournal.com profile] violetcreme made lovely cover art for my House of Eliott Bea/Jack ficlet, which I don't think anyone's done before!

2. A very entertaining post I found in my meanderings about why Miss Marple is awesome. (Because obviously, she is. I just watched an old ITV Dracula in which Van Helsing was patronising to Joan Hickson as a fluttery old lady. It was awful and wrong.)

3. A Ficathon Walked Into A Bar has returned from the dead! Sign-ups can be found at [community profile] intoabar or [livejournal.com profile] intoabar. I've been wanting to do it ever since I found out about it, but it was deceased by that time. And since the rules are pretty much "random crossover meeting in 500 words or more" I think even I can cope, since that's the kind of thing I write anyway.

further waffling )

4. ... and so then I wrote a Miss Marple meets Dracula ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks in revenge for the 1960s TV. Just to prove the point. :lol:

5. Anyway, it's open, and it should be fun. And just looking at the LJ version brought up a Chalet School fic I didn't know existed! I'm having a sort of craving for new Chalet School fic, which is because I am really bad still at reading anything offline that isn't a CS book, but I've read the whole lot (very slowly) twice in two years now and I can't do it again. I hope. Also because I'm miffed that lots of the fill-in books cost £80 on Amazon, which would be the ideal solution. *sigh* (What if I went to [livejournal.com profile] freudesheim and said "Let's have a ficathon!"? Do you think there is anybody left there? *sigh again*)

6. Also, thanks, LJ, I suddenly seem to have 6 extra loyalty icons appear in the last few days for reasons beyond my understanding, so now I need to re-upload my CS and HoE icons. I have already instantly used it to have at least one more [livejournal.com profile] sallymn masterpiece and G'Kar. (I don't know how fannish I will be about Babylon 5 yet, though I enjoyed it v much, but obviously my life would be incomplete without a G'Kar icon.) (I'm pretty sure I'm not imagining things! I know I had only one icon space left and was deliberating over what to use it for and whether to delete other things and then suddenly I had 7 spaces left. Or maybe this is an alternate universe with only very slight changes...)

7. I am reasonably sure I had something else to say, possibly something more sensible. Oh, yes. I am, for the time being, feeling a bit better again, at last. :-)
