Last yearalyse and I made the decision to have Hermiod hang up his little santa hat, and put the Asgardian reindeer out to pasture*. This was done with a heavy heart, as we had ten awesome years of wonderful joy**.

Indeed, only a week ago, I was opening up old spreadsheets and wondering what it was going to be like not spending hours trying to match someone who wants Carson Beckett dressed as a sheep while romancing Steven Caldwell with the writer brave enough*** to tackle such a request.

"It's going to be a cold, lonely Christmas..." I softly sang to myself****.

But then, just when things seemed at their bleakest, Alyse and I were both contacted. There was a light***** in the distance, drawing in weary travellers with offers of fic and glee and hope.

Yes, there is a new fest starting in the tradition of SGA Santa.


Support them, love them, give them your prompts and write them your fic.

SGA Secret Santa rides again!

* And do you know how much of a bugger it is to find a field big enough to handle Asgardian reindeer? Not easy, let me tell you.
** Well, we had nine awesome years, and that one we don't like to talk about in public because it makes Claire's eye twitch.
*** And by brave enough, I mean with enough alcohol and brain bleach to see them through to the other side.
**** It's at this point I feel the need to admit that it wasn't good singing. It was breathy and pitchy and the kind of singing that made the cat look at me in utter disgust******.
***** But not over at the Frankenstein place.
****** This, however, is pretty much how my cat looks at me in general, so it may not have been the singing.

SGA Santa Masterlist 2014

We ended up with 75 stories in all, just under 300,000 words, thanks to some Santa Madness stories :)

And yes, in case anyone is wondering, the stories by Claire and I were the last stories posted in the main fest. It seemed fitting. After all, we started this thing and we were damned well determined to finish it, too :D

As always, please let me know if I've messed up anywhere. I'm now in the process of working through the stories to add author names and any reveal notes.

Fic: Hail Mary (Gen, G)

Title: Hail Mary
Author: mific
Recipient: hoktauri (Pinch hitter #2)
Pairing: Gen
Rating: G
Warnings: no AO3 warnings apply.
Wordcount: 1710
Disclaimer: Not my characters, and not my galaxy.
Author's Notes: Set after 'The Ark' but before 'Sunday'. John returns to Proculus again, alone, and then vanishes for several months. Hi there Pinch Hitter #2 - this won't really be anything like Johnny Mnemonic, but it's an SGA take on that trope that's a little like what you requested.

Hail MaryCollapse )
Title: The Touch of His Hand
Author: moonlettuce
Recipient: gblvr
Pairing: Evan Lorne/Radek Zelenka
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Not mine
Author's Notes: Dear gblvr, you said spanking fic was always appreciated, but it didn't really fit with the first time they had. So, I wrote you a spanking time stamp :D
Summary: There are two sheets of paper on the table, identical lists with different marks across them.

The Touch of His HandCollapse )


Today is the last day for submitting SGA Santa Madness stories (extra stories you write as treats) and with it being New Year's Eve, Claire and I will be out tonight and may not be able to post your story anonymously until tomorrow if you don't get it in soonish.

Masterlist should go live tomorrow at some point.

Also, please remember to comment on the story written for you. I realise that everyone is very busy at this time of year, but someone went to a lot of trouble to write you a story and it's only polite to say 'thank you'!

Author notes: SGA and McBeck were the reasons I started writing and posting fic, the reason I got a LJ account and began to actively participate in fandom. It's been wonderful to return to my roots so to speak and have one last opportunity to participate in sga_santa. Thank you so much for the organisers! And it is gratifying to know that there are still writers and readers out there who are into this particular pairing! So, flubber2kool I hope you enjoy this! It was supposed to be your original gift but as it turned out longer than expected you ended up with two. I'm sure you'll cope. Thank you to M for outstanding beta duty as always, and to N for cheerleading. I am indebted. Note that the fic is set in the early seasons.

Pinch Hitter Appreciation Post

Okay, I lied, largely because I've now had tea(!) and my mother has decided to tag along for the shopping part of the day and isn't ready yet.

Below are the requests from people who wrote a pinch hit, in case anyone would like to write them anything extra.

Pinch Hitter 1 (didn't sign up, so has no story): Kavanagh/Lorne, Lorne/Parrish or Lorne gen

Pinch Hitter 2 (wrote 2 pinch hits as well as main story): Loves rare pairs - requests include Rodney McKay/Aiden Ford, John Sheppard/Keras, Peter Grodin/John Sheppard, Keller/Sheppard, Keller/Vega (or Keller/Vega/Sheppard). Also would love gen fic focusing on Sheppard, Keller, Ford, Keras, Grodin, and/or Zelenka. Would love John Sheppard as a mnemonic courier. Loves lots of tropes and iddy-fic things, including mpreg, A/B/O, non-con, addiction, Wraith etc. Does not want kink above mild, BDSM or genderbends, and would prefer no crossovers.

Pinch Hitter 3: McKay/Sheppard. Fond of romantic comedy, AU or Harlequin style stories. No major angst or PWP.

Pinch Hitter 4: Female centric fic. Favourite characters include Kate Heightmeyer, Teyla, Elizabeth, Laura, Katie, Novak, Miko, Radek, Lorne, Carson, John. Preferred pairings include Kate/Teyla, Kate/John, Kate/Elizabeth, Laura/Carson, Teyla/Kanaan, Katie/Rodney, Kate/Lorne, Laura/Teyla. Also female centric gen. No m/m fic.

Pinch Hitter 5: Pairings requested include Dex/Sheppard, McKay/Sheppard or Dex/McKay/Sheppard. Likes team fic, Ancient Tech fic, hurt-comfort or Ronon learning about Earth.

Pinch Hitter 6: McKay/Sheppard, Dex/Keller, Dex/Emmagan or any combination of Teyla, Ronon, Elizabeth, Lorne, Radek, or Jennifer. No non-con, Keller bashing, AUs or Kanaan.

Pinch Hitter 7: McKay/Sheppard, snark and banter. Also Zelenka. Nothing too dark.

If you put the Pinch Hitter Number in the recipient line, we'll update it when we do the reveals.

And that's all she wrote...

That's the last story posted as part of the main fest, so everyone who submitted a story should have a story. Let me know if you think otherwise :)

Also, given that someone tried really hard to write a story they thought you would like, we'd be grateful if you could please make sure that you comment on your gift.

Santa Madness is now officially open, so please feel free to check out the memories or the 'requests' tags if you would like to write extra treats for someone. We'll be posting additional gifts between the 26th and 31st.

I'll be doing the usual 'Pinch Hitters Appreciation Post' later today, but first tea and last minute grocery shopping.

Reveals take place on 1 January, so please don't post your story publicly, or reveal who wrote what, until after the masterlist has gone live.

Thank you, and I hope you all have a joyous holiday season!
