Heyy, everybody! You should do this with me. It'll be fun and the title is an SNL reference, so basically I shouldn't have to try very hard to convince you.

[community profile] not_primetime is a Yuletide-style exchange for medium-sized fandoms: so basically, anything too big for Yuletide but too small to be considered a "megafandom." Which means that you can write shit like Iron Man or Inception, since technically they're small enough, yay!

I've already nominated Life with Derek, Hawaii Five-0, The O.C., and Farscape, and some other nominated fandoms are Les Mis, Iron Man, James Bond, Mission Impossible, Star Trek AOS, Castle, Star Trek ENT, Psych, Chuck, Burn Notice, Leverage, Fringe, Big Time Rush, Suits, Vampire Diaries, Star Trek TNG, Warehouse 13, Dark Angel, etc. Sky's the limit, basically.

You can check out the nomination tag set here. You need an AO3 account to nominate/participate (the whole thing works exactly like Yuletide) but if you don't have one already you a) should and b) can talk to the mods who can get you an invite.

It's basically Yuletide-lite, is the impression I get. It seems a lot smaller and more laid back, so you should do it with me, because I'll give you a cookie or make out with you or something. Whatever you want. Who cares.

In a concerted effort to start actually using my journal again instead of randomly popping in to ask for things and assault you with capslock, let's try this [community profile] snowflake_challenge thing everyone's doing, yay! i'm so bad at this watch me give up on day six ugh

Day 1: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I wrote a truly insane amount of gift fics this holiday season, because I am a ridiculous person. So I'm going to ignore that number right there and just a reveal post, here we go.

For [ profile] tw_fallharvest, I wrote:

come on stranger
Teen Wolf/Stargate SG-1 fusion, Derek/Stiles
Teen and Up, 16869 words
warnings for depictions of violence, off-screen minor character death
Evil robots, basically. Sometimes Stiles regrets signing that nondisclosure agreement.

In the same series, I wrote an epilogue, Friends in High Places (2358 words) for [personal profile] jerakeen, because she's wonderful.

I can't even remember what I was thinking during that one. It all blurs together in my head, like an acid trip. An acid trip of space werewolves.

For [ profile] tw_holidays, I wrote this one for [personal profile] lorax:

Tall Tales
Teen Wolf/Star Wars (original trilogy) fusion, Derek/Stiles, Laura
Teen and Up, 6065 words
"We've got a whole month of time, your highness. And there's only so many places you can go on a starship."


No but seriously, this one was a labor of love and caffeine, I don't think I slept for the entire three days leading up to the deadline, and I still didn't manage to get rid of all the navel-gazing in it. I would like to continue it, but I would much rather let someone else do it. Hint.

Now for Yuletide! I did my main assignment and then a treat, because I'm great.

Reunion Song for [personal profile] musesfool
Push (2009), Nick/Cassie, Elizabeth/OFC
Teen and Up, 4752 words
Cassie’s been with her mother for two weeks when she has the first vision of him.

I literally started this Christmas Eve morning and made my brother read it as I posted it forty minutes before the main collection closed, to which he responded, "Meagan, let go of my arm, you're drawing blood." Anyway, he liked it.

Accidentally (Committed) for [ profile] storydivagirl
Common Law, Travis/Wes, ensemble
Teen and Up, 9131 words
It sometimes feels like Travis has known Wes for forever, like he was always there, in the background, bitching about the food and judging Travis' life choices. It's weird, because sometimes Travis will be looking at an old photo and think to himself man it's weird that Wes wasn't in this shot I would've totally made him be in this shot and then he'll remember that it's a picture of his second foster mom from 1990 and that's fucked up.

This was my main assignment and it's ridiculous, but I made myself laugh quite frequently while writing, so whatev I think it worked.

2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic

Reasons I abandoned my recipe meme: because I've been subsisting on coffee and spearmint gum for the past two weeks. I am significantly less happy with the lack of good food in my life but I've also lost like five pounds. I don't think that's a good thing, though.

I also have signed up for, let's see. 3 Teen Wolf exchanges. With the amount of writing I've been producing lately I don't think I'll have any trouble but still. Jesus Christ.
