So, the works in Silent Night Exchange were revealed yesterday! 59 works in the collection as of this posting, wow. We managed to get everyone at least two gifts, which is awesome. <3 This fandom is crazy enthusiastic! And there are more for A Redtail's Dream than I was expecting - of course, the majority of the works are for Stand Still Stay Silent, no surprise there, but it's so good to see people writing/drawing fanwork for aRTD too. <3

I received five lovely gifts!

Details )

I've actually gone through the entire collection in the past two days. I have no idea how I managed it. xD Lots of awesome stuff, though. Anyway, it's hard to narrow it down, but under the cut I'll put my top 10 of the works that weren't for me. :D

☆ I have no idea what's going on with the weather. It was like -5C yesterday. I was able to go out in just my autumn coat. Didn't even need to wear a hat. I'm not COMPLAINING, mind you! But after those arctic blasts we had, it's a little weird.

☆ This whole "trying to get less screen time" thing is... ehhh. I'm trying, but part of the thing is that I spend so much time staring at screens at work. And then when I get home, I don't have much energy for anything except mindlessly browsing anonmemes. Like, I try to read books (easier on the eyes) but I can't concentrate. ...Maybe I should try just putting on some music and going for a run instead. Normally it doesn't work so well when I feel like that; I find it difficult to get into the right mindset for it. But if it's something soothing and instrumental (like Ólafur Arnalds, maybe) it's possible I'll have more success...?

☆ I've heard people murmuring that they want a YOI rarepair exchange to exist. (Well, it'd probably be an "Everything except Victor/Yuuri" exchange, let's be real.) I want it to exist too. But I don't want to be the person to bring it into existence. :V Hopefully somebody will take this up, because it's a Good Idea. In the meantime... Chocolate Box? Lots of neat rare requests in there, and I hope to write some myself.

☆ Speaking of YOI, look, MadameFolie wrote something: View from the Top: The Power Pair That Shook the Sports World Victor/Yuuri, T, 1.7k; it's written as a magazine interview accompanying a photoshoot! Read it if you like unusual fic formats. Ahh man, I just love her work, no matter what fandom - so many of the things she turns out are exactly to my taste.
