I have at last clawed my way out from beneath months of extra work at my job. Sheesh. It was really too much for a while there, and now I am pretty much in disarray. My apartment is a shambles, I haven't had a haircut for far too long, I'm behind on everything, blah blah.

But! I do get today to myself, to think about restful things like stories and writing and whatnot. \o/

On that topic, I noticed that nominations are open for Night On Fic Mountain, until the end of March.

Here's the tagset so far. I can see two things in there I could offer to write (one definite, one tentative), but you need to offer at least 5. So I'd need to nominate three more things. Hmmmmmm, it'll take some thought.

Master & Commander is already in there, to my delight; I'd love to write that some more. I also notice someone has nominated a 2006 movie that [personal profile] klia showed me back in the day, "The Guardian", a slashy movie about Coast Guard rescue swimmers (older grizzled traumatized officer trains troubled young hothead, they butt heads, then they impress each other, until they become super bonded protective pair--you know how those military-slash movies go. :D ). I've never thought about writing it till now, but I'm considering whether I might be brave enough to offer it.

Someone nominated Nero Wolfe, but only Archie/Saul. (Nothing against Archie/Saul of course, I adore Saul, but I don't know if I'd have any ideas for writing it.) Someone nominated Elfquest, but I don't think I could write any of the characters they included; I don't know them well, and don't have any ideas.

I wonder what else I might nominate? And can I think of things that other participants might want to read and/or offer? There are many times I wish I could read minds, and this is one of them.

^.^ Master and Commander is on my shortlist too, and Scarlet Pimpernel. Maybe some detectives? Maybe some Eroica?

I don't know if I ever read Ember's reign as chief, I can't remember much of anything about Mender.

Oooh, and the King's Speech is in there too. I should rewatch that.

I only remember that Mender is hummina hummina wow, but I guess that goes for a lot of the elves. :D And I've seen some art for the current Final Quest series (which I'm not actually reading) that indicates Mender/Dart are a lovemate pair. Also quite hummina, although I never quite warmed up to Dart's foofy pigtail hair.

I saw somebody added the movie Silverado, the pairing Emmett/Paden. I've always loved that movie, and Emmett/Paden in particular! Plus Linda Hunt's character; she and Kevin Kline had such fascinating chemistry. Not sure if I could *write* Emmett/Paden, but I do love them, and love westerns. But that would another first-time nervous offer, like if I offered The Guardian, and I don't want to load too many of those onto my list. HmmmmMMMMMmmmm.

I don't think I've ever seen slash for The Guardian, so I'd love that. Just FYI. :D

I never have either! I would love to write it for you. Just need to think of an idea in order to feel safe offering it, hmm hmm hmm.

Fascinatingly or perhaps weirdly, when I looked on AO3, I didn't see ANYTHING for The Guardian. Not one story. Seems so strange. But then, not everybody digs an age difference like I do. :D Or possibly no one 1) felt like fixing the end or 2) had seen the alternate ending on the DVD/YouTube!
