[livejournal.com profile] yuletide authors have been revealed, so I can say thank you to Kiera Kingsley, who wrote me the gorgeous Fireside (The Brothers Grimm historical RPF). I also found a wonderful New Year Resolution story for me by [livejournal.com profile] misura called Fifteen Moments (Whistle!, Shigeki/Tatsuya/Shou &hearts) - woot!

As for me, I tackled Georgette Heyer's The Foundling for [livejournal.com profile] luthien, who wanted some Gilly/Gideon slash - which I was very happy to provide! My only worry was how to write this pairing without setting off my infidelity squick; if it takes place pre-book, then Gilly will be eventually cheating on Gideon with Harriet, and if it takes place post-book, then he will be cheating on Harriet with Gideon, neither of which option sits comfortably with me. I really didn't want to break up Gilly and Harriet; quite aside from the fact that I love her dearly, just think of the ducal succession! (Yes, like Lord Lionel, I can't help but obsess over such practicalities.) So I, er, killed my dearest Harriet off. Probably in childbirth. Oh dear.

Anyhow, it was all good fun - especially playing with Heyer's Regency cant - and the result was Flapdragon'd (ha! after a brief foray into Housman, I am back to Shakespeare-inspired titles.) If you like your Heyer G-rated, then just read the first section; the sex doesn't happen until the second half. (No, I didn't manage to come up with an actual plot - I'm still worn out after [livejournal.com profile] snarry_holidays!)

Going into this assignment, I honestly thought I was going to write it straight, with no clumsy attempts at Heyer language. Then the cant just started bursting out of me regardless. Huh. I didn't think I was doing too badly, either, but I did read one particular [livejournal.com profile] yuletide story called Of All Our Yesterdays (Sunrise, Sunset) by [livejournal.com profile] freneticfloetry (set in JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood universe) which was an impressive demonstration of how to nail a crazyass distinctive writing style right into the mattress.
