Christmas. Whatever one wants to call it.

Went to Christy's last night. They had their traditional Spanish pig roast. Hated to tell her it wasn't the best eats out there. Ended up sitting in the smokers lounge with her sister's husband who we really get along with. If fact William said he's coming over tomorrow. Will be good for William to hang out with another construction type guy for a while.

Ficmas - proud of the one story I did and the recipient seems to have. Liked it. Other two - meh. I got two written for me, haven't read them yet. Lots of people I've never heard of requesting fics and very few new writers. Sad.

The MegaDave camp right now... people are going to shit themselves. Tamodachi. Good thing MF is so laid back and willing to forgive. There were some pretty bad things said back in the day, and M had a good run of luck in his adopted country.

William opened his presents. He was ok with the bred dipper set and the skull shirt, but he loved the Brian May book. He sat on the couch and flipped through it for an hour, left the music running in his zone. I don't think he planned on sitting out with me that long. At least he liked it.

I'm just starting to catch up on reading fics now...a few I had high hopes for were disappointing, but I loved the one really sweet story I got and a couple others I read have been good.

TBH I don't really care who requests something if it's a good prompt that catches my interest...I'm just so desperate that if someone actually requests one of my weird ships/pairings I just feel a NEED to try to write it!

I don't really care either, but I can't help look at the names of the new requestors and then it's the same old people writing. Wish more newbies would try their hand instead of just requesting.

Yeah, true. Cranky old me puts it down to the Tumblr effect - people are far more into just reblogging pretty pictures or gigs and posting "imagines" instead of actually, you know, creating actual stories. Ever shortening attention spans and all of that.

I also miss some of the old writers who dropped away from Rockfic...some of the newer more prolific ones, I'm just not crazy for their style (and the way they basically just fawn all over each other's work and don't seem to even TRY to read other people's stories.)

But, at least this year I got a story that felt like it came out of real effort and wanting to write something I'd enjoy instead of just the author trying to prove something in a weird way.
