Some other things too:
Thanks to cmc42 for extra userpic space, Ukitake/Byakuya fic (entitled Things Change) and Christmas card (the Byakuya drawing inside will be treasured! ♥).
Thanks to horusguard76 for the lovely pictures.
Thanks to tecla for advice when I needed it most.
And also thanks to serenia, for writing such beautiful fiction, being a lovely friend, and because you have brought to light some things I didn't realise about the way I think and made me able to explain myself better to my partner.
I feel I am forgetting to thank somebody and I feel awful for it. If I have forgotten you, please let me know. I am terribly scatter-brained at the moment.
And to wet, I wish you a speedy recovery, and I hope you can still enjoy the holiday season somewhat.
Lastly, an apology, because I had intended to send cards/letters and gifts to a number of you, but I've had a bit of a personal catastrophe, so I'm unable to do so at the moment. Hopefully in the not-too-distant future I will be able to send bits and bobs out to you all.
Also, for those that speak languages other than English, would you please tell me how to say merry christmas/happy holidays/other festive greeting in your language? ♥
