I AM RETURNED. YULETIDE. POSTCARDS.



Home in time for Christmas and for Yuletide (and got exactly what I wanted for both! Which is apparently Ryou Sanada and a Leatherman). ♥ ALSO, I HAVE A CAT AGAIN. SHE DIDN'T MISS ME.

Yuletide:

I got
To Fall in Snow, Still Burning by Anonymous
Ronin Warriors | Yoroiden Samurai Troopers -- Sanada Ryou, Hashiba Touma, and others

Ryou has a fever. But the Samurai Troopers don't get sick.


The author described the source material as "deliciously melodramatic," and yes, mix with strong characters and a bit of effective world building and/or plot and you have my favorite flavor. It starts with a familiar h/c scenario that turns out to have hidden, plotty teeth. EERIE hidden, plotty teeth. Basically, it was delicious. RECOMMENDED.

Ok, YULETIDE GUESSING GAME -- I wrote two complete stories this year! I feel like a real yuletider now. Both are in fandoms with multiple stories posted, so I don't mind if you take advantage of that minor glitch in the ao3. I have also been away from computer and Wacom tablet for far too long, so -- if you can guess which stories are mine, I will draw you something!


Postcards

I did in fact get to everyone! Hope they find their way to the right place. :)

Also, I have a favor to ask. It felt kind of doofy to take photos of all them at the time, so I didn't, and now I am being doofy retroactively by asking: If you got one and are able, would you mind scanning or snapping a photo of it, please?

There's no need to post it (though a-ok if you do), just send me a copy of the file, and let me know if you mind if I post it. Thank you! I am kind of a hoarder, especially of my own doodles. That said -- totally optional. I know I had a great time making lots of silly pictures while sitting on mountains and in noodle restaurants (if there's rice vinegar on your postcard, er, sorry). I care more that you got it and sort of enjoyed it. :)

ANYWAY, MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Mine got here! I did indeed know Xiu is Chinese, and am all kinds of thrilled. <3

I just got a new computer, and I'm not sure if the old printer will even work with it, so it might take a while? And eventually involve plugging the old computer back into the printer? But I will scan it for you, eventually!

You did manage to say!

..you have no idea how much the fact that this fic exists even in outline form makes me squee. :D

Finish itttt! It can be a NYR? *makes kitteh eyes*

Well, yes, I suppose technically it is? But I am the same way about my art, and as soon as I read that it was kind of button pushed. Not in a bad way! But in a 'augh, uncomfortable feeling, to the rescue!' way.

Which might also explain the urge to hurry, but. I will not go nuts or anything. Also, I am incredibly sleepy so if I don't entirely make sense at this point it's the exhaustion talking, and I will just wander off to bed now. ^^;
