I've returned from vacationing in warmer climes to my frosty apartment, totally late for all the Yuletide excitement. First, a huge thank you and hearty recommendations for the story I received this year:

"A Winter's Night" - by[personal profile] mizbean, which checks in with several of the characters of Neil Gaiman's "The Graveyard Book" enjoying winter together. It's fun and it's sweet, and it's perfect reading for a chilly evening.

And then there's the story I wrote:

"The Sun Shone on Venus" - based on the Ray Bradbury short stories "All Summer in a Day" and "The Long Rain," for caitrin. She wanted to know what happened to the little girl, Margot, after the events of "All Summer in a Day," which can be read in its entirety here.

The Bradbury story is less than 2K words, and I went a little overboard as usual and wrote 5K worth of fanfic. But apparently that didn't hurt.

In the six-odd years I've been writing fanfiction, I have never had a response to anything I've written as intense and overwhelming and amazing as this. I am incredibly flattered and want to say thank you to everyone who commented and recced the fic and shared all those personal experiences and emotional responses to reading the Bradbury story, which is very near and dear to me too. There will be a big, self-indulgent meta post on how and why I wrote the fic up in a few days for the curious. But this post is for thank yous.

I really never expected this. You guys have made my Yuletide. Thank you all!
