Yay! Yuletide Reveal at Last!

So here's what I wrote:

Madame Sabrina Larrabee (3042 words) by elementalv
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sabrina (1954)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Linus Larrabee/Sabrina Fairchild
Summary: Linus has known Sabrina for most of her life. He wishes he could say that she's known him for most of his life, but that desire wasn't enough to keep him from marrying her.

And if you recall the squee heard 'round the world last week, you may recall that this is what I received:

The Importance of Being Mostly Human (10434 words) by gogollescent
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Discworld
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Lobsang Ludd/Susan Sto Helit, Susan Sto Helit & Death (Discworld)
Characters: Susan Sto Helit, Sybil Vimes, Young Sam Vimes, Samuel Vimes, Angua von Uberwald, Willikins (Discworld), Constable Dorfl, Lobsang Ludd, Death (Discworld), Lu-Tze
Summary: In which Susan identifies "Where's My Cow" as a proto-talismanic anchor for Young Sam's continued health and existence, and tries very hard not to wonder what the Vimes' butler does on his day off. There may also be a lesson about the meaning of Hogswatch, but no one wants to talk about that.

Happy New Year, to all who use the Julian calendar.

Oh, oh, oh, the Susan one! I left kudos, but I'm not yet registered (how long do the codes work?) so you wouldn't know. It was lovely, and so very Susan.

Julia, thank you from a nonparticipant in most things this year.

Clearly, I write freaking awesome prompts, because most (and by most, I mean all but one very early exchange I participated in) of the stories I receive are exactly perfect and what I'd hoped for. But I think The Importance of Being Mostly Human stands in a class of its own.

I'm not familiar with the Discworld fandom so I skipped that story and just read the Sabrina one. I loved that Linus shows his love for someone by doing things behind the scenes to make their lives easier rather than being able to vocalize his emotions. I didn't know who the woman was that he called to take Sabrina out to treat her to a dress and a beauty salon visit so that she could got to the dance so I felt a bit lost there.

I was glad that David became a kind of big brother to Sabrina and kept her up to date on what was going on with the servants she had grown up with in the Larabee household rather than keeping up his flirtatious ways and making his new wife feel inadequate. Sabrina needs a woman her age who is familiar with the lifestyle that she is now going to have to become comfortable with and Elizabeth can be a good friend. Linus can't destroy everyone who is mean to Sabrina ... though I'm sure he'd do a good job of it. :)

Glad you enjoyed it!

Michelle Harrington is kind of an OFC, kind of an unseen, unnamed canon character. Late in the movie, Fairchild tells Sabrina that it never works out when someone in the servant class marries someone in the family. He mentions the "Harringtons' chauffeur" who drove the family to the church then had to change quickly to walk his daughter down the aisle so she could marry the Harrington son.

As for Discworld, if you like fantasy, give it a shot. You don't need to start in any particular order with it, though there are some story arcs that follow certain characters over a period of time.

Thank you for the clarification. Now that you reminded me of the plot point, I remember the lines where someone expects Sabrina to know the name of the chauffer's daughter who married the family son ... all the servants obviously know each other.

Discworld ... I don't know if I have the focus to get into a new fandom at this point, especially something with such a rich new world and so many characters. I saw a couple of the movies that had been made and though I enjoyed them, I felt I was missing out on a lot of back story.
