Summary: Mark didn't come away from Mars completely unscathed.

When I saw the pinch hit come through for H/c the Martian - with one request per the book and one per the movie -- I jumped at it. Because...H/C! Science Fiction! Potential Threesome! So totally in my wheelhouse, I had to jump at it.

Of course, once I got it, I had a rush of anxiety over writing. There was the little matter of my writing speed being glacier-like, and having less than a week to write it in -- given that I would be out of town on deadline weekend. It was at that point that I recognized the requester, and started banging my head on the desk for not really looking at that first.

So I grabbed a couple of people off the yuletide beta readers list -- alina and Celeste -- just to make sure I was writing something intelligible. Then I asked Gwyn to beta it, as I knew she could whip the story into shape, and find all the missing emotional holes that I initially forget. I worked on it right up until deadline, and am pretty proud of how it turned out.

Dira liked it, and I felt good about my writing process. It was a good Yuletide for me.

I wrote crackfic for yuletide! This was so much fun. Strix alba requested a Harry Potter/B99 crossover, 'or as much as you can do for yuletide', and that was my cue to make this a walk on the silly side. I'd also been reading some of the spoilers for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, so I had some fresh ideas of how the magical culture might be different in America. I ran with it all, and tried to frame up the B99 crew as if they had magical powers. It's short - just long enough to get in, do the joke, and move on. :)
