true yuletide magic

As dusty as this blog is at the moment, I HAVE to use it to gush publically about my Yuletide gift, because it's perfect.

The Soldier's Not for Leaving (2303 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Lady's Not For Burning
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Jennet Jourdemayne/Thomas Mendip

This is everything I wanted when I asked for Thomas/Jennet fic: it has kissing, it has Actual Witch Jennet (in a really subtle and beautiful and slightly sad way) and it is, as I remarked to Becca last night, as though Christopher Fry himself had wandered onto the internet for just long enough to write an extra scene of the play. The writing is gorgeous, slyly funny and philosophical and romantic, and I've read it twice already and will probably read it a few more times today.

This year I wrote four stories for the archive and I'm proud of all of them, and much to my DELIGHTED HILARITY it seems that 2013 is not only the year I became a published writer, it is also the year that my published work inspired Yuletide fanfic. So. I think I've lucked out on pretty much all fronts, yeah?
