Hey, all!  So, I realized I had neglected my LJ both in terms of gift and what I had written for Yuletide.  My gift was a fun little 'Whitechapel' tale, written by a last-minute (seriously, the maintainer apparently realized with about six hours to spare that my original writer had posted my Yuletide letter as a placeholder for a story and never gotten around to updating it or properly defaulting) pinch hitter who should get all the praise for not only cranking through the series but writing me a very smart little story in record time!

Ship's Ahoy! (by kittydesade) is a fantastic gen piece about Chandler, Miles, and Buchan on the trail of yet another historic copycat.  Good times.

As for what I wrote, I once again went a bit overboard and ended up writing a first-season Babylon 5 novella that was originally supposed to be mostly about the three ambassadors, but the entire rest of the cast ended up chiming in, and the aides handily stole the show.  Don't know how, but it has made me really want to write a lot more about Vir and Lennier.  Anyway, for any of you who are interested, here is the AO3 link.  I'm moving over to only posting there, because LJ posting is becoming such a pain in the ass.  You can (and are welcome to!) comment there if you like it, or what you think about it.  You don't need an account to comment, either.  Just enter a name and an email address and rock on!

So, without further ado ...

The Subtle Arrangement of Stones
Authornemo_everbeing
Rating: PG-13 (for violence, and some sexual references and humor)
Fandom: Babylon 5
Characters: Londo Mollari, G'Kar, Delenn, Vir Cotto, Lennier, Na'Toth, Susan Ivanova, Jeffrey Sinclair, Stephen Franklin, Talia Winters, Kosh Naranek, Lou Welch, Senator Hidoshi
Historian's Note: Takes place shortly after 'The War Prayer.'
Summary: Ambassadors Mollari, Delenn, and G'Kar are kidnapped by the Homeguard.  It goes according to no one's plans: Earth dithers, Ivanova stews, Kosh is his usual helpful self, Franklin makes assumptions, Sinclair tries to hold everything together, the three aides mount a cockamamie rescue, and Delenn hopes only to keep Londo and G'Kar from killing one another long enough for someone else to do it.  A first season ambassadorial romp.

It was a fun and interesting Yuletide, and as always I look forward to the next one!

Hi! It's me, the Grinch who stole Yuletide. The story later decided it wanted more attention so it got longer and longer... but it's going to beta this weekend and will be posted shortly thereafter. It will be part of the Yuletide collection and you'll get a notice that it's for you. A massive bungle indeed! (The maintainers are in no way responsible, too, it's all on me.)

Happy uh... February! (Sorry, so sorry).

Oh, hi! Don't worry about it. It all ended up working out fine. I got a fun little story on the day, and by the sounds of it, I also get a longer adventure too. I'm pleased as punch, and I completely understand that sometimes a story ends up taking way longer to properly get told than you expected it to. I'm just happy I still get to read it!
