Early Christmas present: The Elf Who Thought He Was Teddy Roosevelt [Dec. 5th, 2016|10:25 pm]

Some years I take a notion, and this is one of them.


I like the idea of giving fiction as a present, but I’m not embedded enough in the fanfiction community–or, let us be honest, committed or organized enough–to commit to doing Yuletide. Instead, some years I decide it’s time to give a story away for free for Christmas, to whoever wants to read it. Please don’t copy the text, but spread the link far and wide if you want to. This year Mikulas left Teddy Roosevelt in your shoe. Or rather–


The Elf WHo Thought He Was Teddy Roosevelt

SERIOUSLY I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH WORDPRESS.

IT IS EATING MY LINKS.

It's been a problem off and on for me: sometimes the links literally just fall out of the posts I make, over and over again no matter how many times I edit them. Putting the link in text in a comment or having Tim do it (because it doesn't happen for him--weird!!!) seems to be the only solution.

ARGH.

I cheered over at Sherwood's LJ, but wanted to applaud here, too - thank you for a gift that made me laugh! I can use that about now.
