1. For Yuletide this year, I wrote how far away the stars seem (and how far is our first kiss), a Lucifer/Amenadiel fic in the Lucifer fandom. I originally intended it to fulfill my assignment and then realized halfway in that unasked for sibling incest in an exchange fest is not a cool move. LOL I disliked in the show the way that Lucifer reacted to the reveal that Amenadiel is losing his powers, specifically that his glorious wings are ruined. I wanted Lucifer to be more horrified, more sympathetic, and offer some comfort. So that's the story I wrote for Treat #1.

For my recipient, I wrote His Brother's Keeper, which is Lucifer and Amenadiel gen that looks at them in childhood and then again once Lucifer is on earth. In this story, I wanted to explore those sibling dynamics without sexytimes and also include Uriel.

Treat #2 is The Yellow Wallpaper (the spinning jennie remix). I had a really fun time with the prompt, which asked for a story in which the supernatural elements of the original are really happening instead of being merely psychological manifestations of the narrator's mental state. So I wrote a ghost story from Jennie's perspective.

2. So I didn't post about this, but in August I went to the doctor because I thought I had a UTI or a bladder infection or something. I was completely infection free but the doctor suggested I might have interstitial cystitis (IC)--at which point, I'm sure she thought she was treating a lunatic because I started uncontrollably crying, told her she could pry the fizzy water out of my cold dead hands, and pretty much left while she made jazz hands and went WTF at the nursing staff. I had a friend years ago who has this disease, and it's miserable. It is one of those catch-all diseases, no real diagnostic test or anything, and the treatment is through eliminating triggers in the diet: no carbonation, caffeine, artificial sugar, chocolate, citrus, tomato, spicy stuff, acidic stuff, fruit juice. And I looked at my doctor and I thought, "You know, I gave up gluten and it kinda sucked for a bit, but I'm pretty much over it, and now you want me to give up my fizzy water?" I don't know why the fizzy water is the straw that broke the camel's back, but it is. I drink tons of the stuff all throughout each day because I hate water. Well, I've come to the conclusion that she may be right. :( So I gave up all my fizzy water a couple days ago and my chocolate and replaced my morning baby coke with tea. I'm hoping if I give up carbonation, chocolate, and artificial sugar (which I only had in my morning coke) and if I only have one small caffeinated drink per day that I won't have to give up the other things. I have seen some improvement, so *cross your fingers.* Financially, it's not a bad idea to give up the fizzy water anyway. Tap water is free! *sigh*
