Maaaaaaaaaaaan Yuletide reading took it out of me this year. I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE QUIT, AND I DIDN'T, AND THAT'S ON ME, but life somehow felt more demanding this year than it was when I was spending this time of year working 60-hour weeks and somehow still doing an obscene amount of Yuletide reading. WHO KNOWS. MAYBE I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT.

the angriest recs post of all time )

ETA, I COMPLETELY FORGOT: I wrote this:

greater than or equal to
Some Girls (BBC)

Most things about the world make sense if you know which numbers to pay attention to.

WHAT A SURPRISE THAT THE FIC THAT WAS BASICALLY A LOVE LETTER TO SPREADSHEETS WAS BY ME, AMIRITE? Okay but that's not why we're ETA-ing, we're ETA-ing because of the OTHER Some Girls fic in the collection, BLT by sophieisgod, which is about Saz coming out as bi and then Saz/Holli, and it's GREAT, and I'M LEGIT IN AWE OF HOW SHE NAILED THE FEEL OF THE SHOW, WHAT A GOOD JOB.

Rec posts will come in a week or so [I'm at work right now but the TABPOCALYPSE situation on my computer is insane. 180 TABS REPRESENTING A MINIMUM OF 500 FICS? GOOD TIMES. GREAT TIMES. GONNA DO IT.] as will a ~REAL LIFE~ post all about my 72-hour return to working retail, but that is all for LATER.

FOR NOW, here are the only truly important recs, aka the stories that were written for me!

Secret Santiago: SOMEONE WROTE ME A TREAT TO FILL MY "SECRET SANTA AT THE PRECINCT" PROMPT! All you need to know about this is that a) it's a great way to get your B99 fix in the middle of this ENDLESS-FEELING STRETCH OF NO NEW EPISODES, and b) JAKE CALLS AMY SANTI-AWKWARD. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I'M NOT EVEN GONNA SAY ANYTHING ELSE BC YOU SHOULD JUST BE READING IT.

And then there's my gift story, which I am screaming and pulling my hair out over 24/7/365:

not properly: THIS IS EXACTLY WHY YULETIDE IS AMAZING BECAUSE BAD MACHINERY FIC DIDN'T EXIST AND THEN I REQUESTED IT AND SOME BEAUTIFUL ANONYMOUS UNICORN WROTE IT FOR ME AND NOW BAD MACHINERY FIC EXISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAD. MACHINERY. FIC. EXISTS. And not only that, but there are moments that nail John Allison's tone so specifically and perfectly that I CAN LITERALLY SEE THE PANELS AS HE WOULD DRAW THEM. And there's so much Charlotte and it's such a nice look at the kids when they're another few years older and there are such great asides about Tackleford's general weirdness and OH, DID I MENTION THERE'S AN ENTIRE SECTION THAT'S BASICALLY JUST LINTON THINKING ABOUT CHARLOTTE? BECAUSE THERE'S AN ENTIRE SECTION THAT'S BASICALLY JUST LINTON THINKING ABOUT CHARLOTTE. I HAVEN'T TALKED A HUGE AMOUNT HERE ABOUT HOW INTO LINTON AND CHARLOTTE I AM BC IT'S A FAIRLY RECENT DEVELOPMENT THAT SNOWBALLED RAPIDLY THROUGH CONVERSATIONS WITH [profile] coldbam BUT HOLY GOD. I'M DEAD. I'M DYING. I'M GONE.
