brightknightie: Schanke reading Emily's novel (Reads)
I haven't yet read any, but I see that Yuletide 2016 yielded:
  • 3 new D&DC stories (and there's 1 that posted independently in October, since the last time I checked)
  • 3 new FK stories (and there's 1 that posted independently on Christmas Day)
  • 0 new BSG78 stories (although 3 posted independently in November and December)
  • 0 new YB stories (although someone included it in a mass crossover in October; otherwise, it last had a story of any kind in 2013)
  • 14 new Galavant stories
  • 13 new Pokémon Go stories (I didn't know PokéGo fanfic was a thing. But OF COURSE it is.)
And many, many more. Including 4 stories for A Ladies' Guide to Collecting Mermaid Love Songs by Aimee Picchi, which I'd never heard of, but will be looking up on the strength of that title!

I'm particularly looking forward to the D&DC tales. Falling prey to prejudging a fanfic by its tags and summary, I think they look congenial. I shall see... :-)
brightknightie: Jacqueline dressed as a woman in front of a fire, and in her musketeer's uniform with her sword (Other Fandom YB)
I wrote "Salt Its Tail" for [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon 2011 to this prompt ).  Though I've loved Young Blades since its too-short run in 2005, this is the first time I've written it.  This prompt called out for YB's Jacqueline, the farmer's daughter who masquerades as a disinherited nobleman in order to join the Musketeers.

Thanks to [personal profile] celli for beta-reading!  Knowing I was against a wall, she improved the ending in time for the deadline, even though she's never seen the show.

I tried to make "Salt Its Tail" accessible for readers who haven't seen YB.  If you choose to read the story, might you do me the favor of sharing your opinion?  Did it work?  (Would you be interested in more YB in the future?)
