Yuletide

subjunctive: (groot & rocket)
For Yuletide I got two great Longmire (the TV show) fics, both Cady/Henry get-togethers: Careful What You Ask For, You Don't Know Till You Try and Closing Arguments. I had a hankering for fic based on season three, given how much they were interacting, and was lucky enough to get twice the fun. Great Henry voices especially in both.

I wrote two fics myself, both of which I'm pretty proud of. For 13 Going on 30 I wrote So Ahead of Yourself, a sort-of sequel to the movie about Matt and Jenna's relationship, mostly fluffy romance with some teenaged angst and accidental five-times-ing. And I wrote a treat for Gotham, Sharpen Your Knife (terribly titled but it was posted at very nearly the literal last minute), Gordon/Mooney femdom smut that I couldn't get out of my head after seeing the prompt. Possibly thinking about another where Jim goes undercover at a BDSM club. Maybe.
subjunctive: (hawkeyes)
I have posted a lot of exchange letters, so feel free to trawl through those too, using the "dear creator" tag, although I borrow from them a lot.

General likes:
  • For very actiony or supernatural canons, I really like curtain fic/domestic fic, especially if it gives a picture of "life in this crazy canon."
  • Whump and hurt/comfort, in all forms. Amnesia, sickness, trauma, injury, whatever. Trauma aftermath and stories about coping (or not coping) do wonderful things for me.
  • Apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic fic, including post-apocalyptic curtainfic (lol). Just no zombies. (Except Little Mosque - I would definitely read that zombie apocalypse with hearts in my eyes.)
  • Open endings, including ambiguity about whether the relationship will work out if it's a shippy fic.
  • Family dynamics, both found families and I'm-stuck-with-this-biofamily.
  • Traveling and/or road trips. All the road trips.
  • Sex pollen and all its non-flora incarnations, forever and always.
  • Groundhog Day stories.
  • Alternate universes (especially of the canon-divergent variety, but all are welcome that preserve the canon dynamics between characters).
  • Difficult ethical quandaries for good/heroic characters.
  • Worldbuilding.
  • Pining (including unrequited) and miscommunication troubles.
  • A/B/O AUs. For literally any of the fandoms I've requested, even if it would be lulzy. I love the idea of the A/B/O dynamic changing what we see in canon.
  • Relationship/marriage tropes (undercover as a couple, marriage of convenience, sharing a bed, cooking as love, etc).
  • Five things/times/etc, with different numbers or negations.
  • Darkfic/horror. I've added some prompts from Crueltide. I'm not expecting the darkest of dark (although that's good too!) but anything that's fundamentally unhappy or heart-hurty too. Darkfic works best for me when there's a psychological component: a degrading sense of self, questioning one's own sanity or senses, creeping doubt, etc. While I don't need a happy ending, some sense of closure or resolution to the situation would be nice (even if our tortured hero is left with lingering psychological scars or is never the same again ...). No animal or child abuse or amputation, please. The only canon I definitely don't want darkfic for is Little Mosque on the Prairie.

↑ Feel free to consider all of these prompts.

General dislikes:
  • Explicit, straight-up non-con/rape. References to the past or to current attempts to deal with trauma are totally fine.
  • Kid fic/next gen/pregnancy fic. (exception: Little Mosque, Inhuman)
  • On-screen wedding ceremonies or marriage proposals. (exception: Little Mosque)
  • Soulmates/True Love. Love is great, but except for canons where True Love is built in (like OUAT), I tend toward thinking that all the relationships in a person's history are significant to them and don't become meaningless now that they've found someone else.
  • Sexual appearances by non-sexual bodily fluids (non-sexual appearances are fine, if that makes sense).


I have zero preferences about ratings; stuff I read and look at regularly run the gamut from G to E. I would be happy to receive porn (if I've requested a ship) with or without plot. I'm cool with violence and horror, too. I'm a sucker for all character studies and portraits.

I'm equally excited about all the fandoms I've requested; don't worry that just because one section is particularly long or short, that's equivalent to how much I want it.

Sad: Edge of Spider-Verse was rejected for Yuletide. :( It's understandable - if a bunch of people had been interested and nominated characters from all the different issues (not that that was very likely...), what a matching nightmare - but still sad.

Happy: Spider-Gwen is apparently getting her own series! I did not expect this at all, because she called herself Spider-Woman, and we already have one of those, in a new, upcoming ongoing no less. What are they going to call it??? But next year Spider-Gwen is a go, assuming I actually like the comic.

Sad: Covert Affairs was not eligible, so I could not fulfill my endless (truly endless) Annie/Eyal desires, either through reading or writing. Will have to wait for NPT next year, and various rare pairing exchanges. Assuming someone else out there in the fannish universe wants to write them... please write them for me

Happy: Fraction/Aja Hawkeye is ending, but Hawkeyes will be picked up in a new series featuring both Clint and Kate next year. Yes, please!

Still slightly bitter over the change in Kate's characterization w/r/t her family's wealth from the original YA (you had ONE JOB, Fraction, ONE JOB), so here's hoping.

Sad: I can only make six requests for Yuletide.

Happy: I have almost my entire letter written! It is very... enthusiastic. Hope I don't annoy you, dear writer.
