tevere: Jihae, solemn with hint of smile (Default)
Yay, not one, not two, but three amazing gifts! I always feel super-lucky to get more than one story (it's only happened once before), so this was just a delightful surprise.
On a Slow Boat (1393 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Looper (2012)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Old Joe (Looper), Joe (Looper)
Summary: Old Joe gathers his thoughts before going through with his plan. He still has a choice. Or does he?
It seems like so much care went into this story! It's perfectly tailored to my tastes: a life lived, choices made, repercussions to be faced, an imperfectly understood new culture, and-- of course!-- timey-wimey brain-bendiness. A great Joe voice. I enjoyed it a lot.
The Very Secret Diaries of Saint Augustine (1185 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: 4th & 5th Century RPF, Confessions - Saint Augustine
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Saint Augustine/OFC
Characters: Saint Augustine, Saint Jerome
Summary: 404
Correspondence Jerome continues. Infuriating. Do not understand why he does not see my point! Translation of "gourd" vital to understanding of gospels.
SPORFLE. What it says on the tin. BUT BRILLIANTLY. One of the Yuletide standouts, clearly. Also, I finally got my Augustine story!! I forsee myself giggling inappropriately during my next re-read of Confessions.
Old Things in Need of Repair (1022 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Looper (2012)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Summer Qing/Joe Simmons
Characters: Joe Simmons, Summer Qing
Summary: Summer Qing learned early to love old things. She also learned early to love dangerous things.
I was pretty cut when made my requests this year and belatedly realised that Old Joe's wife wasn't a nominated character. And now some generous anon gifted me with a backstory for her, which is just lovely.

As for the story I wrote... well, like everyone else I guess I feel my story is super-recognisably mine, but I also know that finding a friend's story in the archive these days is like finding a needle in a haystack. (Still proud of myself for guessing a [personal profile] kaneko story one year within the first couple of paragraphs!) Not offering anything for a correct guess, but like all my previous Yuletides bar one, it involves Asia and food.
