Farewell to two football legends

This year, two of my favorite players are leaving their childhood clubs behind. Iker Casillas Fernandez, age 34, has been a goalkeeper for the first team at Real Madrid since 1999 and team captain for five years. Xavi Hernandez Creus, age 35, made his first team debut as a midfielder for FC Barcelona in 1998 and was captain this past season, when his team won all three major tournaments for the second time in Spanish history.

Despite the intense rivalry of their respective clubs, these two men have been friends since they met as teenagers. At times, their mutual esteem and affection have been the glue that holds the Spanish national team together, allowing them to win two European Cups and Spain's only World Cup between 2008 and 2012. Even the Prince of Asturias has recognized this OTP.

Remix Fics Are Up!

It had been so long since I'd written anything that I was really thrilled to participate in this year's Remix event on AO3. Basically, you offer to let other people rewrite one of your stories and get matched with someone willing to write in your fandoms, and vice versa. Right now the authors are being concealed, so I can't tell you what I wrote for a few more days, but I would like to point you towards a couple of fics that were written for me (i.e., inspired by my stories) and also a couple that were just so awesome that I have to tell you about them.

Cloudy, With Hope for the Future (Hungry: The Post-Miracle Remix) - a continuation of my Buffy/Faith Hungry series

Can't Take My Eyes Off of You (the Taylor Swift in Red remix) - a Cameron-centric remix of my House/Wilson fic Can't Take My Eyes Off of You

Like No Business I Know (the Climbing Uphill Remix) - a wonderful Tawny Madison-centric Galaxy Quest one-shot

Just Can’t Kill the Beast (the Green, Green, My Jealous Heart Remix) - a Faith-centric Buffy the Vampire Slayer one-shot

Enjoy!
