So I'm just back from nearly 10 days away and 3 time zones and so am behind on absolutely everything, including the December meme, which will probably be more of a January meme at this point. Also, I know that some have written things in response to my prompts and I will get to commenting and such. Thanks so much for sharing your theories, meta, personal stories, and all good fannish things.

So, Happy New Year! May this year be better than the last! I wish you all good things!

Did you get nice things?  Did you have a nice time?  Tell me more?

So, Yuletide. Oh my gosh, a huge thanks to [personal profile] heliopause for getting me through it! Helio was SO supportive.

I wrote one story, and one treat. The main story for [personal profile] parhelion was in Bujold's Chalion. I think my recipient liked it and I had fun doing it.

Show Your Hand (1163 words) by rthstewart

Fandom: Star Wars Legends: Thrawn Trilogy - Timothy Zahn
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Mara Jade, Talon Karrde
Additional Tags: Nursing, Humor
Summary: Karrde is injured. Mara tenderly nurses him back to health.

I had in my head the desire to write a whole bunch of romance tropes where Karrde and Mara subvert them. This was just the first, where Mara "tenderly nurses" an injured Karrde back to health. Uh huh. There's always a YT request for Mara Jade plotty fic and that takes time and I really need to think about that and maybe next year.

I received 3 wonderful fics, 2 written by keerawa and another lovely story by glishara.  And I'm so happy that these stories are all doing well and are popular in YT.  It's nice to write something your recipient loves -- and I  loved all my shiny gifts.  It's even better when others love what you did!
