Yuletide Assignments Posted!

My original assignment has been up for awhile. Did a post-Dec 18th pinch-hit also. I usually try to take on a pinch-hit, if I have a passing familiarity with one of the fandoms. But after the initial posting deadline, I only step up if, after reading the request/characters/prompt I get a clear idea for a fic. With more time to pick away at it, I'll do it if I like the characters and have a vague idea that I can probably do something with the prompt, but with 4 days or less to submit, I need something more concrete.

Well, I got it and wrote it in two days. Spent another day rereading and fine-tuning.

So. Two fics in two fandoms I've never written in before. Fingers crossed that the recipients will like. And I see my own gift waiting in the queue for the archive to open. It taunts me.

Sigh. I'm gonna write some Batfic now.

Nicely done! What fandoms are they for?

Am I allowed to say before the author reveals?

I've no idea. I've never done the Yuletide thing before.

Just in case the folks I wrote for are also friends and I haven't connected their LJ handles to their AO3s, I'll hold off saying until the reveals. (I'll be crossposting at that point anyway.)

Oh yeah, of course. Sorry about that. I didn't even consider there might be reveals or the like.

No worries! If you haven't done Yuletide before, then there's no reason you should.

Now it can be told...
Ella Enchanted (Book canon) and the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.

Interesting. I don't know either of those - or that Ella Enchanted has book/s.

Re: Now it can be told...
The cartoon was one of my first loves. One of those that's written for kids, but doesn't talk down to them. Characters way more nuanced than typical 80s Saturday morning fare.

As for Ella Enchanted, I haven't seen the movie, but from the synopsis, it sounded as though the plot had been altered so much that it would have been better to just change the title altogether.
