barometry: solid wall of paperbacks stacked up (Default)
[personal profile] barometry
Happy new year, folks! I totally forgot about this yesterday, which is a good thing because I would have been fretting about being revealed myself, but not I get to say that I absolutely lucked out my first yuletide.

[archiveofourown.org profile] Ione wrote me an epic alternate ending to Mansfield Park, the Austen novel with which I have always been perhaps least satisfied. It is lovely and believable and exactly what I was hoping to get -- believing all the while that this was an unreasonable thing to imagine any Yuletide author might write.

And then, the first fic I have posted on the internet since I had a Geocities Sailor Moon fan page (yes, that long), I wrote an Orphan Black story for [personal profile] yahtzee, which is basically a long study of my (many) feelings about Paul and the entire lies-within-lies of his relationships with Beth, then Sarah-as-Beth, then Sarah. (Also my complex feelings about living with addiction):

Oooh, I haven't gotten to the Orphan Black part of the Yuletide, but I'm fascinated by Paul and that's definitely going on the to-read list!

I'm also curious about how to make Henry/Fanny work so I'll be checking that one out too.

Thank you!

I like Fanny/Henry until the point where everybody is insisting she needs to marry him and she keeps saying she doesn't want to!

The whole ending of that book could have gone in a different direction, so I'm interested in reading an AU.

I sort of ship Henry/Mary most tho. . .Don't judge!
