I got the absolutely wonderful Tweak's Big Dream by [ profile] Chibifukurou, which is everything I could have ever wanted in an Octonauts story. It's adorable and full of heart and has sea turtles!

And I wrote At the Movies for [ profile] kyuuketsukirui, a ParaNorman fic featuring Norman/Neil because the two of them are super cute together.

Whewww, that was close. But I did it!

And, if my writer is reading this, I always try to comment on the story written for me as soon as possible. Normally this is in the morning before family obligations demand my presence, but this year my family is doing things in the morning and then it will be off to the BF's family. So I may not get to it until the evening or later if other things come up. But I will read and comment as soon as I can.

I'm really happy about the request I was matched on! It is totally something in my wheelhouse plus room for a bit of stretching if I want. It's even a fandom I thought about requesting because I want what my recipient is asking for. This fandom needs all the fic; I don't know why it doesn't have more. (I ended up not requesting it because I decided I would have been slightly less enthusiastic about receiving fic from it as opposed to the four things I did request. So this seems about perfect. ^^)

It's a good thing I am so excited about my assignment because the Tigers have left me with a big sighhhhhh. That was not a good end to the season, guys! I think things would have ended differently had Cabrera been healthy. And he certainly did his best, so I'm not faulting him. (Except when he ignored the third base coach's sign to stop and then got out at home plate. That was not a good decision.) But we really didn't look like a championship team once we clinched the playoffs.

I'm finally participating in Yuletide again after a two year hiatus. I am simultaneously excited and slightly terrified. (Excited because Yuletide is exciting, terrified because it's been a while since I've done this.) I finally finished my letter, which is waaay longer than any other letter I've written. I just had a lot of thoughts this year, I guess, haha. Here's hoping I don't scare off any potential writers with it.

Hello dear Yuletide Author! Words cannot describe how excited I am that you offered one of my teeny fandoms. I love all these canons, so I'm sure I will love whatever you write me. I'm easy to please, I promise, so what I want most is for you to write a story that you like. If you already know what you want to write, go for it! If, on the other hand, you'd like a bit more diection, read on. (Warning: I got way more rambly this year than I have in past letters. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing yet.)

Final Thoughts: Thank you so much for offering to write one of my beloved fandoms, darling author! I know this is a long letter, but what I said in the first paragraph still stands. I am ecstatic at the mere idea of fic for me in one of my four requests, so if you already have an idea, go for it!

[1] A tool-assisted speedrun uses an emulator (and therefore save states and frame-by-frame progression of the game) to create a "perfect" game. I don't know if you're familiar with TASes or what the opinion of them is in the wider gaming community, but I think they'd be pretty decent for canon review. Personally, I find them neat because I find all the manipulation that goes on (lengthening the time between random encounters as much as possible, always getting critical hits, best walking path, etc.) really interesting. They're not a substitute for actually playing a game, but I don't think anyone in the TAS subculture claims it is. (I highly recommend the Super Metroid TASes and explanation about what they're doing as an intro to what TASes can do.)

The Breath of Fire III TAS is long, but the game itself is long. The TAS names Ryu "A" because that's two less letters for the dialogue boxes to print before they can be dismissed. For the most part, I was able to read the dialogue boxes just fine without pausing, but if you're a slower reader than me, you might want to keep the pause button at the ready.

The Phantasy Star IV TAS has no sequence-breaking that I know of, but the dialogue boxes go by very fast. You might want to keep the script open in another window if you watch.
