Now I can add the authors to my gifts, and thank applegnat, ambyr, Elizabeth Culmer!

For yuletide, I wrote:

Of Human Origin
Hellboy (comics), Liz Sherman/Abe Sapien
She handed him a thick manila envelope. A cover sheet was clipped to the front along with a post-it note. The title of the cover sheet said, 'Notification of Qualification for Peabody Extranormal Self-Protection Act.'


If you've seen the movies, your brief guide to comic canon is:
Abe Sapien, taciturn, masculine, team leader, no psychic powers.
Liz Sherman, red head, a little butch, experienced field agent, no UST of any kind with Hellboy.

I love Hellboy and I'd read scattered bits of BPRD, so I added this fandom pretty impulsively to my signup. It came back to kick me in the butt. Over the next few weeks I read the entirety of Hellboy and BRPD canon at least three times and produced over 30 pages of story notes and snippets, desperately trying to get a grasp on writing the characters. Despite working on it almost every day, I still wrote most of the story the day of the deadline.

Trouble is, Hellboy/BPRD is a series driven by action. Action, all the time! Great action! It has interesting, very real characters -- the women are 30-45ish, competent and wear sensible clothes! Kate Corrigan, I love you -- but it's not so much with the little moments of character interaction.
