I wrote only one story this year, but hope to try for some NY's resolutions if I can get inspired. My story was for the fandom Life.

The Moon Cannot Be Stolen (4190 words) by gwyneth rhys
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Life
Rating: Not Rated
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Charlie Crews/Ted Earley
Characters: Ted Earley, Charlie Crews

When Charlie found Ted.

At first it was a struggle to figure out what to write, since the request was for Ted and Charlie and I spent days wracking my brain trying to come up with something that wasn't just a rehash of the show or set in prison, but in the episode with the coyote, Ted mentions to the documentarians that he was in a really bad place when Charlie found him, and that was the perfect impetus. I kind of knew going in that setting it before the series, and not having Dani in it, would limit readership, but wow it was soul-crushing to realize just how much that limited it. But I'm really, really happy with the story, and the people who did comment seemed to think I really nailed their voices, and my recipient liked it, so that's all very good indeed.

Every year, I wonder this same thing: Why does everyone insist on making recs posts only before the reveals, and act like it's some kind of deadline? I don't get this. Why does knowing the name of the author make it...unreccable? I have so many more stories to read yet, and hope to do more recs posts, but it's weird to me that people act like they can only rec anonymously.

Out of the past
