Winter Sunlight

Day 21: Laced Drink

I shamelessly claimed this one for myself because I had something in particular I wanted to write for it.

Monochrome Delirious (3855 words) by Sholio
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Iron Fist (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ward Meachum & Danny Rand
Characters: Danny Rand, Ward Meachum
Additional Tags: Non-Consensual Drug Use, Spiked drink, Whumptober
Summary: They were partway into negotiations with three arms dealers in a dockside dive bar in Jakarta when Ward said in a strange voice, "Danny, we gotta go."

Definitely a hard choice whether to use my drugged Ward or my "up yours" Ward icon for this one. Decided to go with Ward expressing his likely opinions on his role in stories of this nature.

Yuletidings!

Oh, before I get into Yuletide stuff ... Festivids is open for signups! (Small fandom vidding exchange, closes the 27th.) I already have my signup in, but haven't written a letter yet.

Meanwhile ... the Yuletide tagset is up! (May load slowly due to its size.) Signups will open on the 27th.

I nominated the Matthew Scudder books, Iron Fist, and Wiseguy. Checking out various other things of interest:
- Ben January: looks like the full character set here
- Alliance-Union: I figured this year, rather than nominating them, I'd throw my Hellburners on the Yuletide gods, and it looks like half of them got in (Ben and Dekker, but not Meg and Sal). Ah well, I can work with that.
- Dragaera: with an excellent character selection
- Finisterre/Nighthorses: with a surprising number of characters for such a mini-fandom.
- The Foundling is in this year! Excellent. (I don't ship the juggernaut pairing - inasmuch as a fandom with almost zero fic has a juggernaut - so the odds of actually getting any relevant-to-my-interests fic are low, but it's nice to see it in the tagset.)
- Imperial Radch: yessss
- Lymond Chronicles: not really something I'm into enough to either request or offer, but of the 3 characters nominated, one is Richard, and my secret Richard Crawford soft spot approves and hopes for fic.
- Mrs. Pollifax: pretty good character set here
- Rai-Kirah: wow, I haven't thought about that in ages. Slightly saddened by lack of Lydia in the tags.
- Elfquest: very eclectic character selection, which I guess isn't surprising for a series with approximately 4 billion characters, but I'm a little surprised by the lack of what I would consider the Usual Suspects for nominations.
- Robotech Macross! With a very interesting character selection. Someone is clearly into Zentraedi.
- Carnivale! ... but without my fave. Awww.
- Defenders is in, with an excellent character selection; yay!
- Luke Cage and Jessica Jones are in, though LC only has Shades and Comanche, and JJ has no Malcolm (boo).
- Forever Knight: with a ton of characters. I might have to offer this year.
- The Good Place: yay!
- Siren: I noped out on this at the end of season one, but it looks like the OT3 is in, so I will hope for fic.
- Whiskey Cavalier: of the characters who are in, I hope for Edgar/Jai.

I'm happy for the Guardian people - I see it qualified! Enjoy yourselves! :D I also see Chicago Typewriter among the kdramas; I need to finish watching that.

ETA: I completely forgot to check the movies! I'm surprised but pleased to see that both Captain Marvel and Into the Spiderverse are eligible. Other items of interest to me: Iron Giant, L.A. Confidential, The Princess Bride.

And I'm sure there are a bunch more I'm either forgetting to look up or will notice after signups close.

What are you excited for?
