I am getting excited about [community profile] invisible_ficathon

Among other items, I have nominated Bolt (the in-universe TV series) and the Higgley-piggley song.

The Higgely-piggely song is from Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson.

Path is so wiggely,
Time is past four.
Almost dead beat
On tired little feet;
No friendly door.

(The above is from a Puffins Books edition, translation by "Ernest Benn Ltd, 1959")

Bolt cocked his head, not understanding Mittens' statement.

"I can't have kittens," Mittens repeated. "They cut that out of me too."

"Oh," Bolt said, ears drooping.

Hillariously, I had an anxiety dream about Yuletide, that the recipients of the stories I wrote disliked them and marked them as incomplete, while the story I recieved was horrendous grammar and barely on topic (human AU) and I marked it incomplete then realised it was actually spam.

Then I woke up to Christmas morning and actual Yuletide!

The story gifted to me left me teary-eyed and grinning and making little snortles of laughter at various parts, and incredibly happy.

My letter for this year's Yuletide story exchange.

Thank you for taking on writing a story for me! I am excited and grateful.

(Plus I get to talk about some works I really like.)

My requests are for

Lifewave Series | Kren Series - Jacqueline Lichtenberg (science fiction novels)

Blood Brothers - Willy Russell (musical about class and fate)

Bolt (2008) (animated film about a dog learning he isn't actually a superhero)

Read more... )

General thoughts

All of these are works where I'm fascinated by the universe and whole story, so wherever inspiration takes you in terms of time and character focus. I particularly enjoy themes of making family and interpersonal bonds, whether that's pairs (any gender and species combination) or confusions or networks, innocently or implied not so innocent.
