LJSanta 2011 is COMPLETED!

So after lots of extensions and deadbeats and backup writer wrangling, all the LJSanta stories went up earlier this week, and I've just finished posting author and deadbeat names today. Wee! Go thank your author if you signed up, and feel free to write to any authors whose stories you enjoyed if you did not (or even if you did, but you like someone else's story a lot too).


Now to rest up and gather motivation for next year. ^_~

Sidenote: It was a strangely low-rated year. No NC-17s and only 3 Rs, most of which weren't really hard Rs to begin with. Also a good year for Diana, who got action from both Nick and Faye in two different fics, and promises to get MORE action from Faye in a fic that one of the deadbeats has promised to complete for their assigned person outside of LJSanta (but who knows if that'll happen). Dayumn, Diana.

And now I can stop pretending I don't know who wrote my story, yay! Thank youuu! :D It was so nice to get pre-Return Damon back, and I really liked how you acknowledged the innate cheesiness of a lot of his lines but still made him sensual and sexy. Like, Damon is just a total cheesefest in the books and that's just how he talks and acts, but, like a really bad horror movie, he is so committed that he swings THROUGH cheesy back around to awesome, and I don't think anyone else has ever handled the "Did he seriously just say that shit to me? Wow, that was fucking corny what do you think I- HELLOOOO let's have sex you sexy man." aspect of Damon's character (but then again, I don't usually read fic unless prompted, so maybe someone else already did, no offense to that writer if so).

I'm glad you liked it. I was worried I was going a bit too cheesy. Damon reminds me of a guy who literally just figured out what 'innuendo' is, and as such needs to use it as bluntly and clumsily as possible, all of the time. But he's also, you know, gorgeous, so it works. Sort of.

Thank you to everyone who wrote for LJSanta this year! It's always nice to have little reminders that the old book fandom isn't completely dead. (We're just hibernating like some eldritch monster. Yeah, that's it.)

YAAAAY LJSanta! I'm so glad you ran it this year because LJS was my first fandom (oh so many years ago now) and it's so nice to write for and come back to now that I'm all adult and stuff.
