Finally a Yuletide letter appears

Dear Yuletide author,

Hi! Thank you so much for offering to write one of these awesome things. <3 Apologies for the delayed letter.

'Ship wise, I like slash (both sorts), gen and het. Please don't feel you have to make it 'shippy if you'd rather keen if more gen. If you are making it 'shippy, I don't like incest, rape, non-con, and I do like a good threesome. But don't feel you have to make it porn-y (writing porn is hard, dude), at all.

I am okay with character death and angst. Don't feel you have to make it all rainbows and happy endings if that's not where your muse is directing you. However, saying that I am also a huge sap and love my happy fluffy fic as well.

Random other things I like: Political intrigue, banter, competence, backstory, and snark.

Also, I am absolutely fine with AUs and crossovers. Love them in fact. If you see crossover potential with another fandom you know I'm familiar with, go with it.

A Place of Greater Safety - Hilary Mantel

CAMILLE. <3 That uh, yeah. I really loved Camille in this book, faults and all, and i was fascinated by his relationship with Max. Maybe something from Camille's POV on the whole thing - as everything is falling apart? As things are just starting and he's just met Max? Anything, really. ;)

The Good Wife

I adore Diane and her relationship with Will, so any exploration of their friendship would be great (would prefer it stays on the gen side if possible). I'd be interested to know how they met and started working together, or just a POV piece on each other. Them having a drink?

If you could add Kalinda into the mix that would be great - she's just a fascinating character and relationship with Will also intrigues me - but if it's not easy to do then I understand and you can keep the focus on Diane and Will.

The Elenium - David Eddings

Admittedly I've requested this before and received it, but it's a whole 'nother pairing. :p I loved Tynian especially in the books and it wasn't until I started reading slash I realised that I'd bascially 'shipped him and Ulath the entire time. Just, whatever works for you. Maybe while they were treking in the Tamuli books, maybe futurefic after they're retired (love futurefic). Feel free to use other characters.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

I just loved this animated series as a kid and anything you could do to expand on the universe would be great. An insight into Carmen and her past? Ivy and Zack on a case? An insight into the agency?

Thank you again, you rock!



Edit: Still not over the H50 ep. Looking at GIFs on Tumblr is about to make me very rushed for work. Stupid show. Stupid Steve. Stupid Danny and Steve loving each other so much.

Obviously this post isn't meant for me, but I love Will and Diane and their story and their interactions. Diane is one of my favourite ever female characters in the history of anything ever. I don't want to spoil anything if you haven't seen the latest episode, but OMG! I love this show and everything about the relationship between those two! (I also agree that things should stay gen between them!)

I am well behind on this season sadly - other things keep getting in the way - but I look forward to getting to that OMG moment. ;)

I've always liked Christine Baranksi as an actress and I agree Diane is one of my favourite female characters too. <3
