Been working on this one for a while and after a weekend sobbing pitifully over a uni assignment, I promised myself once I'd read the last 22 papers I would finish it up and post it.

Title: All of us, mourners
Fandom: Harry Potter
Ship: Gen
Summary: AU in which Petunia and Lily's parents are still alive when Lily and James are killed.

In the wake of her sister's death, Petunia comes to realise that while families are never as perfect or fair as they should be, that doesn't mean you can't mourn together.

I wrote a thing. In somewhat shaky iambic pentameter (or..pentameter at least)

Title: Comrades Abroad
Ship: (unrequited) Iago/Othello
Fandom: Shakespeare's Othello

A queer reading of the text 'Othello' can be taken in two ways- firstly, that Othello himself presents very much the type of machoistic man who, at the time of Shakespeare, could potentially be more interested in the company of men. OR, secondly, that Iago's schemes stem from a confused lust and hatred for Othello in equal terms.

This is simply a suggestion based on the latter reading, set as if it were a prequel to the events within the play itself.


*dances off to contemplate a part 2 to try and get people to stop solliloquising and start shagging*

Title: Heaven is too far out of Reach
Fandom: Welcome to Nightvale
Ship: Carlos/Cecil (of course)

Carlos doesn't feel well. And being trapped in a mysterious bubble is definitely worse than Throat Spiders.

(Warning for one off colour joke. Neither I nor the mysterious bubble actually intended it to occur but I, as a self-identifying queer person, and my fictional Carlos both found it amusing and so it stayed but I realise that, as in my country of origin the reference is not routinely used, it may cause offence to others. It is not intended to do so)

Disclaimer: I don't own Night Vale. Do we really own anything at all? Even ourselves?
Also, I wrote this whilst drugged out of my tree on cold medication I did not see where this was going as it took a distinct detour from the story I thought I was writing. Oh, and the title is from the Rachel Stamp song 'Metallic Peach'. Because earworms+throat spiders.

Essay submitted! *Quivers in terror*. It was deeply enjoyable, just on my final check-through, to find myself sitting reading aloud from it and envisaging myself engaging in lively academic discussion with bright-eyed bushy-tailed things who found the MANY concepts that I did not have the time nor the wordcount to explore, fascinating. Ended up pondering the origin of humankinds' penchant for fiction and storytelling and wishing I was a bit better at history, particularly ancient history, than I am. It would be interesting to explore further.

Anyway, due to the whole I HAVE AN ESSAYDEADLINEMUSTWRITEMUSTFOCUSORWILLDIEADEATHOFDEATHS, I was very bollocks at 12 days of Christmas this year so have spent the beginning of the evening reading all the wonderful fics available on there.

I only managed to complete one fic for the challenge, and is as follows:

Title: Homesickness
Fandom: Hollis Family Series by Michelle Magorian (Mostly Cuckoo In The Nest)
Ship: Gen
Disclaimer: I don't own either of the two main characters in this tale, although I do own all the extras.
Summary: : Written for 12 Days of Christmas Challenge 2011-12. Commiserations. John ‘Digger’ Hollis and Basil ‘Toff’ Duke served in the same regiment. When they meet again, they embrace, laugh, and talk for hours, and Basil’s influence challenges John’s inborn prejudices concerning theatre and the upper classes. This is a short moment from the beginning of an unlikely friendship
