Stories that were written for me:

My Destiny's Anvils, a Scrubs story by [livejournal.com profile] usomitai. JD and co have mini-golf, within the frame of Janitor reading JD's journal to Dr. Cox. Hilarious.

Women Are Wicked When They're Unwanted, a Dexter story by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess, proof that good prompts gets you great fic. I asked for ITK!Deb AU. She gave it to me. Yay! (She also bunnied in the 20,000 words kind of way and I am trying not to push her to hard to give in and write the long version!)

Other People's Dreams, a Dexter haiku by [livejournal.com profile] odditycollector. A haiku! It's very reminscent of the books.

Story I wrote:

A House In His Head, a CJ Cherryh - Cyteen fic for Jayest.

If you have never read Cyteen: it's a world in a multi-planet/station Union where they breed batches of babies in womb-tanks and teach them how to function with brainwashing tapes, because they need lots of people to fill up new colonies and fight in wars, and they don't have the original population to parent them all naturally. The natural born folks are citizens or CITs, and the subclass are called azi, because they're rated A-Z by intelligence. Alpha class azi are genius, in the 150+ range, and they can take in a lot of socialization and come close to complexity of psychology of a CIT, except in how they're programmed to love and obey their masters. Ahem.

I wrote a story about a canon gay CIT/azi pairing.

Have I mentioned that the whole CIT/azi thing is fucked up as hell?

This is what I had to say about the story when I wrote it. That all's still true.

I've been really enjoying the whole "omg you broke me" theme in the comments. Hi, join the club. They break me too.

Recs: Forthcoming when I have read more than 3 letters of the alphabet. This holiday has been crazy. You can check del.icio.us if you want recs from me sooner than that.
