Finished Fic List

This is a list of all my completed fic, in one easy to find place. I'll try to remember to update it as I finish WIPs, but I make no promises. *g* Collapse )

I did a fic!

As most of you probably know, even if I don't write anything else all year, I make the effort to take part in the Highlander Holiday Shortcuts annual secret Santa fic exchange. This year was no exception, and now the big reveal has happened I can link to it for anyone interested.

The fic is on AO3 and can be found here. It's a Torchwood crossover featuring Methos and Jack.

I also realised I haven't linked to last year, which can be found here. That one is Amanda & Dr Strange 😊

The world falls down

I know I'm not alone in my grief today, but I need to express how I feel before I implode.

Three of my heroes have passed in the last twelve months, but David Bowie was the biggest. At the tender age of eight, I fell in love with him in Labyrinth and when I discovered Ziggy in my early teens, it was a revelation. Suddenly, I knew it was OK to have the feelings I had, to dress the way I wanted to - if someone as brilliant and as cool as Bowie said it was OK, then it was OK.

I owe so much of who I am today to that man and his music.

I wasn't ready for him to leave. I don't think any of us were. My heart broke when I saw the news this morning and it has happened over and over as the day has gone on, each time catching myself completely off guard with the realisation that he has really left us.

I thank him for leaving us one last gift. Blackstar would be an astonishing work for any artist, let alone one approaching seventy. For a man dying of cancer, it's a mark of how truly uniquely talented, dauntless and original he was.

Safe travels Mr Jones.

Letting go

Back in August, The Shepherds Crown was released and, like many other Discworld fans, I got it on day of release and began to read it. Normally I plough through books in a day or so, especially Discworld, which I devour more than read. But here we are in December, and I have still got two chapters to go.

I had dismissed it, after all I've had a busy year, but last night I realised why I hadn't finished it - this is the last Discworld book. When I finish it there will be no more new adventures on the Disc, at least none written by Terry Pratchett. And I can't bear that thought. If I never finish it then there will always be an unread chapter.

But I know that wouldn't honour Sir Pterry and he'd probably be the first to mock me for being so ridiculous. So, tonight, I will say goodbye to Tiffany Aching, to the Witches of Lancre, to the Disc and to Sir Terry Pratchett when I read the last chapter.
