Thank you all for sticking with me over the 12 Days of Mumford. I know some of you were interested in extensions of some of the one-shots, and I think, perhaps I can open it up to requests. I will expand any of the one-shots you guys would like, but only those requested in the next two days. I have a request already out there for the 9th Day of Christmas, and I do intend to extend that. Send others via ask please.

Fictions

Hey guys, so like our friend (Gilraenstar, if I just killed that spelling i’m sorry [feel free to berate me in my ask Gil-star]), I’m going to do a random fan fic thing, where you guys tell me what you want and I’ll try to write it. Mostly this is because I’ve hit a wall on my other stuff and maybe this will help get my creative juices flowing again. Send in asks yea? I’ll write in the order I get them :)
