Yuletide gifts and reveal
I am sure no one is surprised that I am running very much behind. :) I got two Mabinogion Arianrhod-centric gifts, yay!! The Mabinogion cannot have too much fic written about it, is my opinion.

Arianrhod, in her own words.

My lovely lovely gift, with Arianrhod explaining things to Llew Llaw Gyffes — and, as I requested, without her having to hate him!! YAY. (Also I was pretty sure that I had read the author before, though I couldn't guess who it was — and I have! This is my second gift from betony, who also wrote me a lovely fic for jukebox a couple years back. Much love!)

Arianrhod knew one thing. She did not want Goewin's fate. To sit in the rushes where the dogs shat with an old man's feet in her lap.

She wanted to spend her hours as she wished, weaving ribbons for the night sky.

And I got a treat too! This one fleshes out the story of the Fourth Branch and the relationship between Goewin and Arianrhod (which is sadly nonexistent in canon). Yay!

My assignment was Guys and Dolls, and I had a fabulous time trying to match Runyon voice:

I also wrote a treat. So -- I read Fountainhead as a teenager, and even at that time I wanted to fix things for everyone! So, finally, I did.

Dominique's timing is a little off: she comes to see Peter Keating the day after he's married to Catherine, instead of the night before.

Keating's life is not the only one changed by this.
