|the world transform'd shall view by htbthomas for Alixtii |
My main assignment was this one. I have to make a confession to alixtii - I was matched with you on Carmen Sandiego. But I had misunderstood which version of canon you meant and I panicked a little. Then I saw the NeverEnding Story III request, and decided to write that instead. Problem? I'd never seen any of the movies! But Netflix saved me, and I was able to catch up. Your request for Nicole and the sibling bond was a challenge, but I really enjoyed it. I'm glad you did, too. I hope my f-list will check it out!

My first pinch hit. I have written Runaways and Chase before, but always Gen. So this was a fun and interesting challenge. I tried to combine the requests of intimacy, plus bittersweet memories of Gert in one story.
|Strength for Tomorrow by htbthomas for Belle|
This was a pinch hit, and the requester wanted a "creative solution to Richard and Kahlan's consummation problem." It didn't get much love, though (just one comment), so if you watch Seeker and feel inclined... ;)
|Screenwriting Fundamentals by htbthomas for gladdecease|
This one was my favorite of all seven but it didn't get a single comment for two days! I thought I had made a serious miscalculation in my characterization of Troy (and Annie). I was going for "unreliable narrator" in Abed on this one, so Troy seemed more indecisive and dim, and Annie more needy than I think they are really portrayed on the show. I think I'll have to write another story with these three and use my own style next time.
|Vs. the Yogurt Shop by htbthomas for coffeebased, calliope|
I wasn't sure how this one would go! I used sound effects and the video game elements from the graphic novel, and I was pretty pleased with the result. Plus I fell a little more in love with the girls of the Scott Pilgrim universe. <3
|Friendly Rivalry by htbthomas for Marks|
Since I did so much experimenting with style in my regular Yuletide stories, I decided to use my own style for the Madness treats. Which made me realize I should have done that all along, because these two did pretty well in comparison. I love Annie, Abed and Troy together. I want to see this on the show.
|I'll Be Home for Christmas by htbthomas for Quettaser|
I wanted so much to write something for Glee, and when I saw this prompt (part of which was to explain how Artie became a great guitarist), I had to write it. I love how sweet and unassuming Artie is, and I tried to show that in the story.
