Dept. of Many Thanks

[community profile] fandom_stocking  lovelies

I had some delightfully varied gifts this year, and I wanted to acknowledge everyone who was kind enough to stuff my stocking. You guys rock!

People took me at my word when I said I loved recipes, and I'm so glad they did: [personal profile] bonnefois  linked me to numerous recipes for sweets (and I am going to try the Nutella cheesecake recipe, and probably die happy.) [personal profile] wendymypooh  covered both sweet and savory, with a pasta primavera recipe and one for chocolate cookies. I love chocolate cookies, so thanks especially. One of the most intriguing recipes was one I got from [personal profile] james , for barbecued peaches. marginaliana gave me a vegetarian recipe for sweet potato enchiladas with a spinach sauce. This is something that will send BB screaming for the exits, but I adore sweet potatoes, so I will make some up for myself. Heh. [personal profile] kerravonsen  not only gave me access to her recipes (Apricot ice cream! Asian chicken noodle soup! Lassi!) but linked me to a really lovely piece of stained glass-style Idris/TARDIS art.

I got a plethora of holiday wishes, and each of them brightened my day - thanks to [personal profile] knowmefirst , who also offered a list of possible IOUs ... I'm eying their offer of a banner for my journal with something close to avaricious joy, so beware! Thanks, also, for greetings from sjh2009 (I love fireworks), from [personal profile] tarlanx , whose greetings and art are always beautiful. [personal profile] twinsarein  provided me a Happy New Year gif that was cheerful and silly, while [personal profile] trobadora  made me squeal in OT3 joy, with her greeting card featuring Rose, Jack, and the Ninth Doctor. Oh, she knows how to please a 'shipper. Heh.

[personal profile] clocketpatch  wrote me an IOU for art or story, and you'd best believe I am going to enjoy whatever comes my way, because I love her work. *puts on thinking cap*

[personal profile] hamsterwoman  not only provided me a sweet greeting with, yes, a hamster wearing a Santa hat, which just made me grin all over my face, she gave me Vorkosiverse icons. Vorkosiverse icons! Ekaterin, and Miles! And links to more art! Thank you so much! [personal profile] redfiona99  added to my visual lovelies, with links to MCU-inspired art (you should really go over there and view them), a kawai Who art piece (!) and one bit of inspired Guardians of the Galaxy/Batman crossover art. Thanks! And [personal profile] falcon_horus  provided me with a beautiful TARDIS wallpaper that even now graces my screen. That was a lovely thing to find in my stocking.

And then there were the stories - thank you all so much for writing things that made me smile, or shiver, or cheer. I was especially gifted with Sapphire and Steel goodness, but let me start with a big thank you to [personal profile] merryghoul , who wrote a cute drabble-ficlet, "We Are Not Going to Cheem."

Thank you to [personal profile] ljgeoff , who wrote me one of the sweetest Donna fixit stories it's been my pleasure to read recently, (now you have to name it, so I can rec it to people, dear!) Go over and read it, and smile, if you're a Donna fan like me.

[personal profile] liadtbunny  gave me a short Silver/Steel/Sapphire adventure that was not only clever, but ended on a joyous note, making it an especially wonderful gift for the holiday season. Thank you so much.

[personal profile] annariel  wrote an S&S/MCU crossover, "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze,"  which manages to capture the S&S sense of active, surrealistic danger, with the kinetic fun of Hawkeye and Natasha, and make it work. Brava!

And the lovely [personal profile] lost_spook , who first introduced me to Sapphire and Steel gave me some striking recommendations. I'm still reading "Daisy Bell" and being incredibly impressed. I quite adored  "All at Sea" andI can hardly wait to get to "Assignments and Enquiries."

Thank you, one and all - and if I've missed anyone, know that I enjoyed your gift, too!

Glad you had nice things - you deserved them! :-)

And Daisy Bell is awesome, isn't it? It's really unusual to find a proper longfic in S&S, so it's a rare treat.
