I'm not doing one of those end-of-the-year rec posts. I'm sure to leave someone out!
So I'll do a thank you post instead. (AND I'm re-writing the whole thing because LJ hates "LJ user" code. *THWAP*)BETAZ
: To everyone who allowed me to stick my fingers in your frosting and beta-read more than 60 stories in 2009, THANK YOU. I'm looking at you, nancybrown, andreth47, amand_r, cruentum, copperbadge, neifile7, cookiesofkarma, stuffphile, verasteine, iamshadow, golden_d and the Yuletide writers I can't mention yet. I don't rec your stuff afterward because it's a rule
, I do it because it's great.
Cheers to andreth47 for coming up with the whole naughty Porn Battle concept, and crue for jumping in to co-host, and everyone else for taking part.
Thank you to amand_r for bringing sexy back with touchyerwood
My thanks to snaxcident and the rest of the Askverse crew for making me laugh so much, and xtricks and the Torchwood Three RP company for making me think. AND I want to publicly snuggle my Torchwood Secret Santa for being INCREDIBLY AWESOME. <3 <3 <3
The story written for me, Wonderful Life
, has everything I love in fic: great dialogue, a little drunkiness, and HOT THREESOME ACTION.
lionessvalenti, you're brilliant for coming up with the twsecretsanta
exchange. There isn't a bad story in the bunch.
Like John Cleese, I'm ringing in 2010 with "a song in my heart, a skip in my walk and a hair of the dog", and I'm adding a faintly horrifying song cover by William Shatner. *TOASTS YOU*
