ha ha ha ha. i fail so much at secret santa.

but at least this year i'm actually doing it, so there's that.

just, this thing i'm writing is not fluffy and christmassy and appropriate for fandom stocking filling.

with the way S4 ended, i cannot with the fluff. and also with being me. probably mostly the me bit.

also, what is with this weather? i'm supposed to be going to the gym but it's just too damn far from my bed.

Not sure where you're doing your Secret Santa but I did one on tumblr. I thought the idea was really cute at first and then it took a turn. But the idea totally fit so I went with it.

It was definitely not Holly or Jolly.

Glad I'm not alone.

this one is on tumblr, too. it's proooobably the same one.

i'm trying to make mine less angsty but it's super hard. i just really feel like secret santa stuff should be more "le wild mistletoe appears" less "her eyes are still puffy from all the crying she did when sam dumped her a$$." at least when it's not a request type thing and people ASK for angst. which i would totally do, so...

Yes, more than likely the same one.

I get it. And you're probably right - the expectation is the slow motion running towards each other in the sand, grand gestures of love kind of thing. But a good story is a good story. And if it ends in hope - right now that's all we've got so...

Pretty sure whoever your recipient is, they will be ecstatic because the story will be that good.

or maybe running through the snow? lol.

idk, i'd LIKE to write that and be all 'season to be jolly' but i couldn't so in the end i just had to begin and see what happened. but i'm insisting on a happy ending of some sort because it IS christmas, and it IS a gift, so this thing is going to be way longer than i had planned. ha ha ha ha.

Pretty sure whoever your recipient is, they will be ecstatic because the story will be that good.

i really have no idea, because i have no clue who hardly anyone is on tumblr, but i hope so. :)

btw, have you posted yours already? so i could, like, go on tumblr and find it?

LOL...of course, snow. I need only look out my window to be reminded it's that time of year.

Even if you just end in hope, that to me is a happy ending. Hope you can make it there and if it has to be longer well I guess I'll just have to suffer (is there a sarcasm font yet?)

I'm trying to keep track of who's who between tumblr, LJ, twitter and FF but it's not easy. I just followed someone that I thought might be you on tumblr but I don't know.

I have posted mine and I wasn't even nice enough to make it hopeful at the end. My bad. But I'm going to try and throw in a little something that's a bit more 'season to be jolly'. I won't even make you go find it:

I had reservations but in the end, the scenes fit so I went with it.

Good luck.

oh, i'm so jealous. they have snow back home as well, and here there's NOTHING. well, there's some rain, but that doesn't count.

ha ha ha. hopefully it won't be too painful. ;)

i am trying to sort that out as well. i really feel like people should just pick a username and go with it. lol jk. but we're following each other on tumblr, yes. good to know that's you. i just saw the rookie blue and followed back. :)

okay, now i feel waaaaay better about my story, because it's not depressing AT ALL. that was GREAT, but all about the sad feels. not super christmassy, maybe, but really good.

my two cents

Ummm, I will totally read angst anytime you want to write it. Just sayin'. And, frankly, even though secret santa does seem synonymous with fluff, I think anyone would be happy to receive the gift of reading an incredibly well-written story that gives them feels. And, lady, you fit that bill to a (capital) T...(that rhymes with P that stands for Pool).

which works out SO well, since angst is pretty much all i write. ;)
