Last year, I wrote a last minute Rivers of London/X-Men stocking-stuffer for [community profile] fandom_stocking, and it was so much fun that I decided to sign up for myself this year. So I did, and then completely forgot to post a link to my stocking here. Nevertheless, I got a delightful bunch of cards and recipes and images/vids when the stockings were opened on Friday, including this very hot Peter/Beverly ficlet from [personal profile] darkrosaleen. Thank you to everyone who put stuff in my stocking!

I wrote a couple of ficlets myself. A shameless bit of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation h/c for my Yuletide recipient that I didn't manage to get together for Yuletide itself, and a tiny piece of Seivarden/Breq/Mercy of Kalr.

Seivarden is ship now, and with her ungloved hands she counts my ribs.

I also tried to post podcast recs to people who requested them, since I listened to a ton of podcasts this fall--so if any one wants podcast recs, let me know!

Happy new year, all!

Remix Redux went live this afternoon and I got the most delightful remix of my Downey films story, A Beautiful Pea-Green Boat.

It's called Two Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the fog), and, as in the original, Holmes and Watson spend some time stranded in a lifeboat. The remixer has added all kinds of hilarious and spot-on details as to how they got there, wrapped it up in a fantastically acerbic Watson voice and made it all far more in character than than my version was. Go read it--it will completely brighten your day!

And while I'm getting you to read things, let me send you to the Five Acts stories people wrote for me

[ profile] greenhoodloxley wrote The Lash of his Tongue (Esca/Marcus NC-17) -- a fabulous, movie-canon, verbal humiliation fic.

and [ profile] hiddencait wrote a Walsh/Beaumont (the Unusuals, NC-17) fic featuring steaming hot impact play fic (it's up on AO3 here)

The meme was a complete bust for me due to the ongoing domestic crisis--I didn't write a thing. But maybe I can go back later and write something for these guys.

Speaking of writing: I wrote two fics for remix. One I wrote weeks ahead of the deadline, had double-beta'd and carefully edited. One was a pinch hit I wrote in an almost literal fugue state of sleep deprivation and anxiety due to the ongoing domestic crisis, didn't have beta'd at all, and posted at the last possible minute. Guess which one has more than twice the hits than the other atm? I despair of myself as a fic writer sometimes.

I keep meaning to do an actual TV write up, but tonight is not the night. I'll just tell you that son #2 and I have been consoling ourselves with the DVD of MI4, which does not pale upon re-watching, especially certain scenes involving tall buildings. I've come to see that Tom Cruise's surprisingly perfect comic timing is the true star of the movie.

So, it's been a wearisome week here at Chez String. The week started with a two hour snow-delay at the boys' school and is ending with a Teacher Work Day. In other words: job, what job?

But let's skip the angst and go straight to the trivial, shall we?

In case you haven't seen this:

This week has sucked eggs (and it's only Wed.), but the idea of Renner all summer long helps me keep going :)

So, yeah, I can't seem to write anything but the most shameless h/c this month. That's my only excuse for this, and it's no excuse at all *facepalm*

Title: Flu Protocol
Fandom: MI:4
Rating: PG, gen
Genre: fluff, h/c
Warnings/spoilers: nope.
Word count: ~1.7K
Disclaimer: These characters are not mine, and I am making no profit through this endeavor.

a/n: for this prompt at [ profile] ghotocol_kink and originally posted there.

Summary: “Poison,” Benji had declared, when he and Jane and Brandt had started sneezing almost simultaneously. Which had seemed unlikely—who would choose a poison designed to basically ache and sniffle and annoy you to death? But then the four of them getting sick at the same time had seemed pretty unlikely too.
