So I made it from T back around through H before reveals, but not even because I bookmarked most of the longer fic to come back to, like Annum Novum" and some other stuff that seems really promising.

I sort of want to read more, or do some 2013 meme, or just do the general AO3 meme because I haven't yet, but the. there's [community profile] snowflake_challenge and some fandom-stocking stuff I still hope to write. And all the stuff that I didn't have time to sort before I had people over last night, so I piled it up and stashed it behind things...

Happy New Year!
