I posted my galpalficathon story from November to fkfic-l (272 recipients) in the closing hours of New Year's Eve, hoping to tidy up and close out the old year for a better start on the new. One spellcheck-immune typo has been corrected since the ficathon, but the piece is otherwise unchanged. My thanks to wiliqueen for the prompt, and much_madness for the beta-read. (Credits are in the end-note, as always.)
I put Tracy and Natalie together twice in 2008, both times for prompts, and both times really challenged me. I rewatched all the scenes with them together, and they simply never clicked -- which is certainly common enough with coworkers, but they are additionally separated by their respective secrets. Natalie knows Tracy knows, but Tracy thinks she is all alone -- as Natalie used to think she was.
In any case, that's the end of 2008. Here's wishing us all a happier, healthier 2009!
