Dear Yuletide Writer:

Once again, I am ridiculously excited to see what you bring me this year. I've limited my requests to three fandoms this year, because I wanted to be sure that whatever fandom we matched on, I would be equally excited with the result. All three of these are things I spend a LOT of my time on, things that delight me, things that would make me incredibly happy to see fic for.

General things I love: fluffy romance, hurt/comfort, mutual pining, ridiculous shenanigans, found families, AUs, happy endings of all sorts.

Dislikes: character death, unhappy endings, humiliation comedy, rape/non-con.

Fandom-specific requests and rambling ...

Critical Role: This show. It hits every single one of my found family buttons. The sign-up limited me to four character requests, but don't feel constrained by that list. I love every single person in this show, and would love to read about anyone.

I'm a die-hard Perc'ahlia shipper, so you can't go wrong with Percy and Vex together. However, my secret dream is Vex/Percy/Vax OT3 - whether it would be a poly V or a full threesome with incest, that'd be your call, I am 100% in for either. Speaking of OT3s, though, I would also kill for poly Keyleth/Vax/Gilmore. Or, quite frankly, any sort of Polymachina scenario you might come up with. I am here for ALL THE POLY RELATIONSHIPS.

(Also, I'm 110% in for Yuleporn in this fandom, should that be your kind of thing.)

If you're more on the gen side of things, though, don't worry! I seriously do love every dynamic in Vox Machina and their friends and allies. Give me twin bonding, or de Rolo sibling bonding, or Keyleth being awkward with Kash, or Grog and the gnomes shenanigans, or life back in Whitestone while VM is out dragon-hunting, or ... I could go on forever. Seriously, I will be 100% happy with whatever you give me in this fandom, as long as it has a happy ending.

Elder Scrolls Online: I spend so much time playing this game. SO MUCH TIME. And there's almost no fic for it, which is incredibly sad - so if this is the fandom we match on, imagine me jumping up and down with glee right now.

My requests are for the four Thieves' Guild characters, because I love that storyline so much, and I love all the characters therein. I love that it's almost entirely female characters, all so very different, with varied and often combative relationships. I love that the one love story we get in this storyline is between two older women, who have lost and then find each other again. This is my favorite DLC yet, thanks to these characters.

I'd love fic about Velsa and Nahrani and their reunion. But I also love how Velsa and Zeira both despise and respect each other by the end, and how Quen starts fitting into the Abah's Landing Guild. I just want to read about their day to day lives, robbing people and living in the sewers and being a really dysfunctional little thieving family.

Paradise Bay: Honestly, I would have never thought to nominate this, but once I saw that someone else did, I literally clapped in delight. (So thank you, whoever did nominate it!) This game is my day-to-day time waster, so adorable and fun, with genuinely good dialogue and characters that make me laugh, and I've had brief thoughts about "wouldn't fic about this game be super-fun?" Now, perhaps, I'll actually get it! Which would be amazing!

I love Pike and Clara, and their pre-existing relationship. I'll read anything about them - their pre-game adventures? How they met? Adventures they go on now, while they're living on the Island? Gen or shippy, I'd take either. And Sita and Wesley - I'll take fic about Wesley being the Worst Pirate, or Sita before she made it to the Island, or their awkward courting together. Or I'd take group shenanigan fic with all of them - plus Keani and Finn, should you choose to include them.

Happy writing, my friend! I can't wait until Christmas, to see what you've brought me. :D

I'm going to take a page from [personal profile] owlmoose this year, since I'm rededicating myself to writing, and try a monthly roundup and goal post. This will not only cover fiction, but some online writing I'm hoping to do this year.

I'm participating in [community profile] getyourwordsout again, which gives me another layer of accountability, but a personal post also lets me do some individual accounting for my writing time.

So, overall 2016 writing goals:

1) Hit my 150,000 word pledge goal for GYWO.

2) [Secret project]

3) Set up book blog, and maintain it until the end of the year.

4) Write and submit an article/guest post for at least one blog/site I enjoy.

And my January goals:

1) Write at least 27/31 days.

2) [Secret project]

3) Finish the setup of my book blog.

4) Sign up and write story for [community profile] chocolateboxcomm.

I wrote two stories for this year's Yuletide:

Matches To Paper Dolls (The Wicked + the Divine, Baphomet/Morrigan). In which Baphomet is fucked up, naturally.

Morning in the Morgue (In Death, Peabody/Morris). A short scene with the second-best homicide detective in New York and everyone's favorite coroner.

And in case you missed it, everyone who likes Rebels should go read my gift, Past, yet present, a really lovely Kanan/Hera story.

Happy New Year, everyone!
seimaisin: (tali looking up)
Your main fandom of the year?
For most of the year, DA:I.

Your favorite film watched this year?
Definitely The Force Awakens, though I think Jupiter Ascending runs a fairly close second.

Your favorite book read this year?
Three (plus) different choices:

Dearest Rogue by Elizabeth Hoyt, for appealing to pretty much all of my favorite romance tropes in one single book.
Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear, for being unadulterated fun with bonus lesbian happy ending.
The Wicked + The Divine (both trades, plus the recent arc in single issues) by Kieron Gillan and Jamie McKelvie, because the story is just so fucking good and tears my heart out now on a monthly basis.

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?
Like about 75% of the rest of the universe, I have to go with Hamilton. It's been a while since something - especially a Broadway show - kicked me in the teeth like that.

Your favorite TV show of the year?
Star Wars Rebels, by far.

Your favorite video game of the year?
Despite the ongoing DA fandom-ness, it's gotta be Elder Scrolls Online. This is a game I can see myself playing for several years to come, if they keep releasing good content.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
I'm not sure - there are a lot of things I've loved this year, but I haven't been descending quite as far into fandom as I have in the past. We'll go with my renewed Star Wars love, between Rebels and TFA.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
Marvel, between the underwhelming experience that was Age of Ultron and my utter lack of interest in Ant-Man.

Your fandom boyfriend of the year?
I think Cullen probably wins this one.

Your fandom girlfriend of the year?
I'm going with Hera Syndulla here, because she's amazing.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
Sitting in the theater on opening night of TFA. It's everything I wanted and more.

The most missed of your old fandoms?
I've been feeling very nostalgic for bandom recently, or at least the community. It was a very different sort of fandom experience, and I miss the type of storytelling I did (and read) there.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
I think, once I get farther in watching the series, I might have to see what Miss Fisher fandom has to offer. Otherwise, I intend to further explore Star Wars fandom.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?
Star Wars: Rogue One. Mass Effect: Andromeda, if it makes it into 2016. Captain America: Civil War. Seanan McGuire's Once Broken Faith. The Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood expansions for ESO.

... but also, I hope something totally new and unexpected comes in and punches me in the face, and that I fall desperately in love with something that isn't even on my radar right now, because that is always the BEST feeling.
seimaisin: (beth at home)
It's that time - a year ends, another begins, and it's a natural time to reevaluate habits and goals. I'm not really looking back at the year that was in depth. I got out of a toxic work environment, and moved on to something infinitely better. My dad had another major health scare, but came through it okay, at least for the moment. It was, all in all, not an easy year, but one which I'm ending feeling stronger than I did last January. That's really all I can ask.

The words for 2016 are Healthy, Happy, and Creative. Which means, if something doesn't cause me to be at least one of the three, it has to go. (Well, unless it helps pay my bills, but that goes without saying.) I have a handful of concrete goals for the new year, but I'm keeping those fairly close until I get further along the way. But everything I do, I'm going to try to run past those three filters. Will it make me healthier, either physically or mentally? Does it make me happy? Will it further my creativity? If I can't answer 'yes' to at least one of those, then it's probably something I should think about cutting out of my life.

I'll hit 40 in about 9 months, and I intend to feel like I'm making real progress with my life by the time my 30s are complete.

I'm glad 2015 happened, but I'm glad to see the end of it, as well. I have my brain back - at least enough of it to work with - so it's time for a fresh start.
seimaisin: (liara is thoughtful)
Nearly late, but today I'm thankful for you.

Yes, you. Some of you have been reading my random ramblings for a few weeks, or a few months. Some of you have been with me for most of the 4+ years I've been on Tumblr. Some of you have been with me since the LJ days, all the way back to 2001. Some of you were around even before that. It's pretty wild, to think that there are people I met on the internet who are still here after nearly 20 years.

I'm glad I'm not typing into the void. I'm glad you're listening. I'm glad you care, to whatever extent you do.

Happy Thanksgiving, Americans. And happy Thursday to everyone else.
seimaisin: (circle beth)
I'm grateful my dad is doing okay.

I dreamed about his death last night. It was odd, mostly for how not-disturbing it was. I feel like I'm going to be pretty numb when it does happen. But for now, he's recovering nicely - his surgeon gave him the go-ahead to drive and lift things again last week, so he's basically back to where he was before the surgery, just with more heart medications and a new scar or two.

He's 72 years old, with heart, blood pressure, and kidney problems, so his death isn't as far as away as either of us might like. But it's not going to happen right now, and for that, I'm thankful.
seimaisin: (warden beth)
I'm grateful to have my creativity back.

A couple of months ago, I started to cut back on my Effexor, with my doctor's blessing. I'm now down to 37.5mg per day (along side my daily Wellbutrin), and the difference has been astonishing. I knew I'd been a little cloudy, especially in creative terms - and I figured it wasn't a coincidence that the last substantial thing I wrote was finished right before I started the Effexor, back in 2013. But I didn't quite get how much my mental processes were muted until I scaled back on the Effexor.

I have stories in my head now, stories I feel are actually worth writing, for the first time in what feels like forever. And better, I've actually started putting words down on a couple of them.

The Effexor probably got me through the end of my old job without feeling suicidal, so I can't regret being on it. But FUCK, I'm glad it's mostly gone now. I don't know when I'll go off it completely - I'm at least waiting until after the holidays, because there'll be some ridiculous withdrawal symptoms - but right now, I feel like I'm at a good place. Thank all the gods.
seimaisin: (beth at home)
It seemed like a good idea to make Thanksgiving week a time to be grateful for some of the things in my life right now.

First day? My biggest reason to be grateful for this year - my job. Why? Many, many reasons.

- Nobody is looking over my shoulder any more, waiting for me to fuck up.

- My office is quiet; it's common to go whole days only seeing/having to speak aloud to my three officemates. I even get to wear headphones and listen to music!

- I get to use my writing/editing skills on a daily basis.

- I feel like I'm an actual part of the department now, part of a larger team, rather than just some admin person who doesn't count.

- I'm learning something new every day.

- I have upward mobility chances in this job.

- In the infamous words of Sally Field, "they like me, they really like me!" I've been told on multiple occasions that everyone is amazed at how quickly I'm catching on, and how much I've gotten done in the few months I've been here. I can't remember the last time I heard professional praise that didn't ring hollow.

... and I haven't even gotten to the part where I get to go back and finish my undergrad degree basically for free. I'll start exploring that after the first of the year.

I'm grateful that I finally got up the courage to say "enough is enough." I'm grateful that K told me about this job, and that she went to bat for me when the University HR department decided I wasn't qualified enough. I'm grateful that my boss took a chance on me. I'm so, so, SO happy to be in a better place.

Monday again.

- I've been off Tumblr since ... last Tuesday? Wednesday? And honestly, I feel a million times better. I don't know specifically what it is, but for some reason I've reached my breaking point with the way people interact on Tumblr (at least in my corner of it, anyway). I've been getting my social media fix on Twitter, and for the most part, it's felt much healthier. I did take a hiatus on Friday/Saturday, because the amount of Paris speculation and misinformation really got to me, but for the most part it's worked better for my current mindset.

- We finally got rid of all the old bookshelves and furniture that have been cluttering up our house/garage for YEARS on Saturday. It feels AMAZING. Well, except for the part where I'm so out of shape that I still hurt today from the lifting and moving on Saturday morning. But still.

(I am the complete opposite of a hoarder. I want to get rid of EVERYTHING. If it's not working, if it doesn't do me any good right now, if it doesn't serve a purpose, GET IT OUT. Clutter makes me anxious, makes me feel lethargic and hopeless. I need space to breathe more than I need a second winter coat, or more shelves in which to allow my physical belongings to spread out.)

- Yesterday, the group of us started our new Numenera campaign, which is shaping up to be super fun. I'm loving Numenera as a system in general - the rules system allows for more storytelling and character development and fewer 3 hour battles that depend on the whims of the dice. Also, the setting lets you go in whatever genre direction you want - non-technological fantasy, apocalyptic sci-fi or horror, steampunkish weird science ... you name it, you can probably play it. I'm looking forward to getting more into the game.

- I've reached the uncomfortable point in my therapy where I can't tell if I'm on the verge of breaking through my own stubbornness and blocks, or if my therapist is not understanding what I really need. This is usually where I just abandon therapy all together, but I'm trying to push through this time, at least until or unless I figure out that the latter is true. We'll see.

Happy Monday, all. How are you?
seimaisin: (jack kills things)
Some plus/minus Monday thoughts.

+ I took my therapist's advice, and got some melatonin supplements to at least help my Sunday night sleep schedule. And it worked, at least for last night! I'd almost forgotten what it was like to not wake up at least four times during the night.

- [redacted extended family stuff] :((((((

+ If you like your erotic romance to include threesomes and moresomes of a variety of gender configurations, as well as sex for fun and affection as well as for True Love, I highly recommend Kit Rocha's Beyond series. I've sped through all the full-length books, and now have to go back and get the novellas.

- Still doubting every idea I have for my Yuletide story. I need to do a canon review, and hope desperately that the canon doesn't joss whatever I decide to write before reveals. Ugh. Why did I decide to offer something so narratively dense again?

- Actually, I'm doubting every story idea I have in any context, not just Yuletide. It's a huge problem. I'm not doubting my actual writing ability, just my ability to come up with a story that's worth telling. It's paralyzing me. I'm unsure what steps I need to take to eradicate it, because at this point, 'just start writing' hasn't worked.

+ But hey, at least I managed to dye my hair yesterday, and get a couple of other tasks completed. I need to recognize small victories where I can get them right now.
seimaisin: (warden beth)
- I feel kind of terrible this morning, for no good reason.

- New kitten has some kind of upper respiratory thing, poor baby. She doesn't seem sick, really, but she's got the most terrible sounding cough, and we keep having to scrape snot off her tiny nose. I have to call the vet today and get her an appointment.

- I'm having all of the Hamilton feels today, about how out of everything "Wait For It" is the song I relate to the most, and I'm not quite sure what that says about me. Also about how ridiculously hot Daveed Diggs is, but that's nothing new.

- Speaking of Hamilton - and of Dragon Age, because everything is Dragon Age - because fanart just popped up on my dashboard that reminded me of the character, Leslie Odom Jr as Ser Barris, y/y?

- Anti-rec for the Ulta Matte Lip Cream, it lasted only until I put my lips on a glass this morning. I'm much happier with the LASplash matte lip products.

- Oh, I know why I feel terrible. Because asthma sucks, and I didn't use my inhaler this morning. Smart, Jaime.

And some thoughts about recent family stress, partly for my own benefit, partly for those who only read here on DW/LJ.

Short version, for those who don't follow me on other social media - my dad had quadruple bypass heart surgery two weeks ago.

And for something with content over here ... how about a kitten?


Meet Razum-dar - named after our favorite Khajiit from Elder Scrolls Online. :) She's about four months old, and as adorable as any kitten could possibly be. She came to live with us last Thursday.

Raz and Amelia are still getting used to each other, but there haven't been any serious fights, which we're considering a good sign. Mostly, they just occasionally hiss at each other when one walks past.

It's good to be back up to two feline residents. The place has been terribly empty since we lost Numbra this summer.
seimaisin: (liara is thoughtful)
Dear Yuletide Writer:

As usual, thank you in advance for whatever you choose to write. I’m incredibly excited about all the fandoms/characters mentioned below this year, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I include some prompt-type things with each fandom, but don’t feel like you’re limited to those ideas. Those are just in case you want a jumping-off point - if you have your own ideas, I’ll be super excited to read them!

If you’re the sort of person who likes to stalk your recipient, I more often live on Tumblr as shadowedhills. I’m seimaisin on AO3.

To porn or not to porn: If I say I ship something below, or if it’s otherwise a canonical pairing, I’m absolutely open to porn! Consider anything that’s not listed in my dislikes as fair game. However, if you’re not a porn kind of writer, that’s 100% okay too! Just know that I’m open to either, whatever your preferences and inspirations are.

General likes: happy/hopeful endings, domestic fluff, found families, BDSM (especially fem!sub), heists and shenanigans, hurt/comfort, friendship between women,

General dislikes: tragic endings, rape/non-con, watersports, character humiliation, incest

Elder Scrolls Online - Razum-dar, Ayrenn Aldmeri

I am not the person who nominated this fandom, but I literally pumped my fist in glee when I saw it in the tag set. ESO has eaten up hundreds of my hours over the last year and a half, and Raz and Ayrenn are probably my favorite NPCs in the whole game. Ayrenn is such an interesting example of the Altmer - so young, in their world, and so determined to push past the typical Altmer superiority complex. And I love Raz’s devotion to her, as mysterious as it is, given how little of himself and his past he reveals to the player.

If you’re writing this fandom, I really just want fic about their relationship. Ship or no ship, either way is more than fine. I’ll take stories of their adventures before she came back to take the crown, or stories about the Queen and her spymaster. Want to speculate about what happens after Molag Bal is defeated? Be my guest! Seriously, I don’t care when you set it, or what direction you go with their relationship, as long as you keep the obvious affection and loyalty they have towards each other.

Potential prompts: What happens behind closed doors after Naemon’s death? How exactly does Raz survive in those ruins in Reaper’s March if you leave him behind? Or what was that whole story about riding a guar naked? Or how exactly did a runaway Altmer princess end up under the wing of a Khajiit … assassin? Or whatever Raz called himself in those days?

October Daye - Sylvester Torquill, Luna Torquill

Toby’s surrogate parents, with whom she now has a very contentious relationship. But they’ve both been alive for infinitely longer than Toby, and have their own histories, their own motivations for everything they do, things that Toby is unable to see. I want to know what they are, what their relationship is like when Toby’s not around.

I’d especially love to see something that happened before the start of the books. Maybe even pre-Rayselline, pre-Toby, when “parent” wasn’t a role either one of them needed to play. Maybe something about Sylvester’s days as a hero, or something expanding on who Luna is other than “child of a Blind Michael, wife of Sylvester, mother of Rayseline.” They’re fascinating characters with a long, storied history, and we don’t get but a small glimpse of it in the books. I will happily read anything you want to write about the two of them and their loving, but complicated relationship.

Potential prompts: I’d read about their courtship, or about how Sylvester finds out Luna’s true identity. Or if you want to use this opportunity to expand on their relationships with other people in their circle outside of Toby’s limited POV, feel free!

Star Wars: Rebels - Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus

So yes, I ship it 110%. I adored everything about the start of their relationship in A New Dawn, and I love the way their relationship progressed to comfort and trust between then and the TV series. I love the “old married couple” dynamic, the fact that they know each other so well and can find so much comfort in each other. So if you’re inclined to write something shippy, I’ll be delighted with anything - set it during Rebels, set it during the years between their meeting and when they picked up Ezra, speculate about the future, it’s all good by me.

If shipping them isn’t your thing, though, don’t worry - the dynamics I mention above are just as awesome when you’re talking about non-romantic friends and partners! Really, the only thing I ask is that your story keep their closeness intact; or, if you introduce a rift in the story, it’s resolved by the end. Also, I’m happy to read anything with any of the Ghost crew being their fantastic “found family” selves. As long as Kanan and Hera are the main focus of the story, you can bring anyone else along for the ride that you choose!

Potential prompts: If you ship it, when did their relationship change from platonic to romantic? I love falling-in-love stories! Otherwise, for any version of their relationship, I’ll happily read adventure stories, tales about them making trouble for the Empire, slice-of-life down time stories, pretty much anything.

Hamilton - Angelica Schuyler, Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, Peggy Schuyler


… okay, you probably want more to go on. But I’m serious, I’ll take anything about any one of the sisters, apart or together. Give me Eliza dealing with her life with Hamilton, or her quest to maintain his legacy after his death. Give me … well, anything with Peggy at all, whatsoever. But I’ll admit, Angelica is my favorite. I want to know what her marriage is like, how she feels about her husband, what kind of life they lead. I want more about her complicated relationship with Hamilton - and I’m open to reading about an actual affair between the two of them, if that’s your thing. Or, hey, I’m also one of those who thinks OT3 is the answer to a lot of shipping problems, so if you want to OT3 Angelica/Hamilton/Eliza, that is also fair game!

Whatever you choose, I just want to read about one or more of the sisters dealing with life in the context of the musical, or in an AU based on the musical, if that’s somewhere your mind goes. The show tells us a lot about how the men shaped the nation. Now I want to see things through the eyes of the women.

Potential prompts: I mentioned some above - an Angelica/Hamilton affair, or an OT3. Or tell me what Peggy was doing while everyone else was embroiled in everything. Or give me bonding moments between any of the sisters, before or after Hamilton walks into their lives. Or, I’d actually really like to see Angelica being happy with her husband; the fact that she loves Alexander doesn’t preclude her also loving the man she married.

Yuletide is one of my favorite times of the year! I can't wait to see what you write!
seimaisin: (Default)
Dear Yuletide Author:

First of all, thank you for whatever you decide to write for me - discovering my Yuletide presents has been a highlight of my holiday season for the last few years!

General requests: I'd really like something happy/hopeful. Which doesn't mean you can't include angst and trouble, but I'd really like something that has a happy and/or hopeful ending for the characters. Other than that ... really, I enjoy things across the board! Fluff, smut, AUs, domestic, adventure, et cetera; as long as it includes the characters requested being awesome with each other, I'm inclined to like it!

My few dislikes: rape/non-con, incest, sexual uses of bodily fluids that aren't normally involved in sex, abuse. I'm also not a huge fan of baby or pregnancy fic.

Okay, on to the requests!

1) Sleepy Hollow

I do, in fact, ship Ichabod and Abbie, so any kind of fluffy romance and/or smut fic would be well appreciated in this corner! Or, if you're not a shipper of that sort, I would also love a friendship fic. Or a case fic, or more of Ichabod adjusting to the 21st century ... basically, as long as Ichabod and Abbie are being snarky and adorable with each other, I'm happy. :)

2) Haven

I am strongly in favor of an Audrey/Nathan/Duke OT3. I will happily devour anything that involves the three of them in a mutually codependent triad, in or out of bed. If OT3 isn't your thing, though, I'd also gladly read some Audrey/Duke. Or even just friendship fic featuring all three of them. Whatever you choose, I'd really like to see something where they get a break from the Troubles, where they're dealing with each other without the immediate stress of imminent supernatural disaster hanging over their heads.

3) Ready Player One

I just finished reading this book, and I adored the universe. What I really, really want is fic about either Art3mis/Samantha or Aech/Helen - while Parzival/Wade is doing his thing during the story, what are they doing? What are Art3mis's methods of investigating, who else does she encounter on the way, how does her fame affect her? Or Aech, traveling around in her van, what kind of adventures and/or trouble does she get up to, in the real world or the virtual one? I need all the female character fic for this book.

4) Star Wars: The Old Republic

By the time Yuletide stories are revealed, I will hopefully be completely done playing the Imperial Agent storyline. It's a fascinating story, and I'd take any story about how the Agent deals with the incredible amount of crap that's thrown her way. I'm also super fond of Vector, and am currently trying to romance him, so I'd also love anything that allows the Agent and Vector to have some good times together, as a break from the Empire's machinations. (This is, perhaps obviously, a potential loophole in the "happy/hopeful" request from above, if you choose to write about the Agent dealing with her storyline.)

I can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy Yuletide!

Maybe it's time to hold onto one side, one decision
Let go of the hand that holds me high above that great divide

12) "Finally Woken" - Jem

You see I've finally woken
From a long sleep
I'm ready to jump
To make that blind leap
'Cause I now believe
I have the power in me
I've got the faith baby
I can truly be free

Dear Yuletide Writer:

First, let me thank you in advance for whatever it is you end up writing for me. Last year was my first year participating in Yuletide, and I ended up with a couple of really great stories that made my holiday season that much better. Whatever you write for me is a gift that will make me clap with delight on Christmas, no matter what you write, I can guarantee that!

My main request for this year, regardless of which fandom you matched with me on, is pretty simple – I want women being awesome! The ways in which they're awesome are completely up to you, but whatever you write, I'd really like it to focus primarily on female characters.

Fandom details - and potential spoilers - below: Cinders (video game), Iron Seas (Meljean Brook), Newsflesh (Mira Grant), Clockwork Century (Cherie Priest) )
