seven fics  
I somehow wound up writing seven fics for [community profile] fandom_stocking, mostly because I decided to write something for everyone who requested Rivers of London (did I mention that I'm a bit obsessed with this fandom right now). Fortunately there were only four of them, but I wrote two Vorkosigan fics and a ficlet as well.

Winterfair Interlude
The story of the time Alys took a weapon from Simon's holster.

Evon and Carl Vorhalas have an unexpected encounter one night.
(also claiming this one for my h/c bingo square 'unconsciousness')

Coffee Break
Criminals are stupid, Lesley always says, but sometimes they're also spectacularly unlucky.

The Early Bird
The early bird catches the worm. Dr Walid's first meeting with Nightingale.
(another h/c bingo, for 'poisoning')

How you get home
Peter and Nightingale at the end of Moon Over Soho.

Nightingale returns to the Folly and finds someone who never left.

And an untitled Galeni ficlet.

I appear to have written quite a lot of angst and unhappiness, possibly not in the spirit of the season, but it seemed to be what was grabbing my imagination, and most of the stories do have at least a bit of happiness at the end.

These are all so wonderful!

"The Early Bird" is my favorite of the RoL ones, because I didn't realize I wanted to read Walid PoV, but apparently I really did, and I love how his curiosity and science-mindness and professional compassion come through, but "Demob" is beautifully heartbreaking, and "Coffee Break" is just plain FUN, and so very Peter to stumble over things because he's overthinking the situation (and I liked the detail of the cashier getting more nervous as he approached, too).

Alys saving the day was great (and I love how, in the midst of crisis, she notices details like wallpaper and thinks about Simon's shirt being ruined), and you write my favorite Galeni, so getting a snippet of Memory from his POV was simply the best!

It didn't take long of writing Walid's POV to make me love him even more than I already do :-). I think I need to write more of his adventures in cryptopathology and learning about magic. I wonder whether he ever tried to do any spells, and how he discovered about 'cauliflower brain syndrome'...

But all of these were hugely fun to write in their different ways, the fun adventures and the heartbreaking ones. Now I think I need to work on some long projects as a bit of mental contrast.

I would love to read Walid's further adventures in cryptopathology! (And he was probably weirdly gleeful when he first saw the cauliflower brain syndrome, to Nightingale's disconcertment.)
