For Yuletide I got insanely lucky: I received two stories in the main collection and a gift in Madness as well.

The two stories in the main collection are both Velgarth stories, about Tarma and Kethry. All I really wanted in this fandom was Tarma and Kethry being awesome, and I got this twice. I got Tarma and Kethry being awesome in a quieter moment, and Tarma and Kethry on a case.

I'm happy with the narrative voice, and I had fun putting in bits of canon, but the actual story I think sounds like everything else I've ever tried to write. Getting the story to gel was surprisingly tough, and I kept tweaking until pretty much the last moment. One of my 2017 goals has to be to push harder to write more fic, and put more variety in it.

Hm! How does it sound like everything else you've written, and is that a bad thing? (Just curious! I think everything I write these days turns out to basically be on just a couple of themes as well. But I'm not sure I object to that :) )
