Dear Yuletide Writer

The fandoms (and characters) of my heart I've requested
Blade (Movie Series) - Abigail Whistler, Hannibal King
Rat Queens - Betty, Dee, Hannah, Violet
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters - Hansel, Gretel
Rivers of London: Peter Grant, Lesley May, Thomas Nightingale, Varvara Sidorovna Tamonina


First of all, thank you for writing for me! Just having someone write fic for one of the tiny fandoms of my heart is enough to make me happy so I am sure that I will love whatever you write.

I tend to be fairly small fandom orientated anyway, and I tend to stay with fandoms for a while, so please don't be put off by the fact that I've requested some of these fandoms before. It doesn't mean that I haven't loved the fics I've had in the past - it's just that in many cases, these are the fandoms I've been writing in all year around and Yuletide is my once-a-year chance to get to read some fic that I haven't written myself!

So, on that note I thought it would be helpful to give my likes and dislikes upfront, just to give you an idea of what makes me happy and what might not :) These tend to be pan-fandom things, but if there's anything specific to a fandom I'll put it there.

Likes:

I love female characters, and I especially love female characters who are competent at what they do, regardless of what that is. I have a competency kink in general, but it's just so much more satisfying for me when it involves women, and that's largely reflected in the fandoms I've requested. I also have a soft-spot for capable women and the still capable but slightly broken men who pretty much worship the ground they walk on.

I love found families, and those that are small and broken, but still good. I love stoic characters who hide so much beneath the surface (especially when they're women), and I especially love relationships that are all about the unspoken bonds, where a quiet touch or a simple exchange means as much as the most ardent declaration. I adore relationships (romantic or not) where people aren't afraid to call each other on their shit, and it just makes me wriggle with glee when male characters actually trust their female counterparts to know their limits, where they don't feel the need to rush in and 'save' them - where the men are just as likely to need saving, or where it's that they save each other, over and over again without having to keep score.

Give me faith and trust, characters who have each other's backs, who will go to the end of the line for each other. The ones who will walk through fire for the people they love, whether that's familial or romantic, who will fight to the death for someone even if they occasionally drive each other nuts. Smart characters who might occasionally do stupid things for the right reasons. Broken characters who just keep on going out of sheer stubbornness because they just can't quit. Partners who rely on each other, and friends who will always be there. I don't mind if it's casefic or shipfic, plot or porn or a combination of all of them, but I'm largely in fandom for the characters and what they mean to each other so I would love anything that explores that in any of the fandoms I've requested.

I like happy endings, but I don't mind if they're bitter sweet, and hurt-comfort or injury is fine as long as it's not permanent and doesn't result in death. And if you want to go the porn route, I have a particular fondness for threesomes, cunning linguists :D and pegging.

Dislikes:

I have a massive second hand embarrassment squick, so please, no humiliating characters or having them embarrass themselves. No non-con or death fic, please, although I'm okay with a story dealing with the aftermath if it happened in canon. I'd prefer fic set in the canon universe rather than outright AUs, although I don't mind 'what ifs' if you want to explore what would happen if canon went in a slightly different direction. And please no fic with men dominating women in the bedroom, although it has to be said that I'm perfectly happy with it the other way around :D (as long as no humiliation or significant pain is involved).

Phew. Hopefully that's not too offputting! Now to the fandoms, all alphabetical like.

Summary: She catches his eye in the mirror and raises one eyebrow at him. It's her 'what the hell are you up to' look - he knows that one a little too well - but it's ruined by the small smile that's playing around the corner of her mouth. Her red mouth. Her very red mouth, full and luscious, bright with a shade of lipstick that she just doesn't wear.

Given how hard his dick is in his pants, he's beginning to understand why.

Author's Notes: Written for Porn Battle XV, for the prompts 'licking' and 'tease'. Thanks to Aithine for the beta.

Summary: She's thought about all the ways she could make him shut up more than once, pinning him to the wall and pressing her hand firmly over his mouth until he finally caught a clue. Or pressing her lips against his, licking off whatever flavour of candy he'd been eating. She's thought of other things, too; things she'd never admit to in the cold light of day but that left her warm and flushed in the privacy of her room, heated little thoughts about pulling his mouth down to her skin and letting him lick and suck to his heart's content.

Rating: PG13

Author's Notes: Written for [community profile] legendland for a challenge based on this picture.

Summary: There was something else, something that cast a pall over them; a weight to the air, something oppressive, like a taint or a scent that you couldn't quite catch.

It made Richard think of a predator's lair, only without the animal stench or the detritus of death that he was used to, and his fingers tightened around the hilt of his sword.

Late, as usual, but then when am I not :D My excuse is that I spent Christmas away, staying with family, and most of December dealing with [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa.

But I did get a chance to read both of my stories on Christmas Day, and they were awesome.

My main gift was Blade: Trinity, a lovely gen story of Abby and King comforting each other through various trials and tribulations, with some Abby/King hints that were just the icing on the cake:

Comfort Where We Overlap by [archiveofourown.org profile] fadedink [Blade Movie Series]

Everyone needs a little comfort. Even the strongest people.

I also got a lovely Yuletide Madness ficlet written by my very own [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. I had no idea who had written this, but I knew it had to be someone who knew me because it was perfectly designed to make me giggle like a 12 year old :D

Go read them. And give both authors some love - they deserve it!

Dear Yuletide Author

First of all, thank you so much for volunteering to write in one of the tiny fandoms of my heart. Just having fic in one of these fandoms is enough to make me happy so I am sure that I will love whatever you write.

I'm going to give you some of my likes and dislikes right up front, because I know some people would rather know that. If you're the kind of person who likes to read what your recipient writes to get a flavour for what they love (and I really don't expect you to wade through my stories - it's just in case you are one of those people :)), then please feel free to check out my 'fic fandom: tags' on my DW/LJ/IJ. I've written Blade: Trinity (under 'fic fandom: blade trinity') and Alice (2009) (under 'fic fandom: alice').

Likes

In the main, I'm all about the female characters. I like women in all of their flavours – from the warriors to the homemakers, from the CEOs to those just muddling through – but I like women who are not afraid to speak their mind or take charge or be good at what they do, whatever that is. I have a massive competence kink, and that's only doubled when the competent person in question is female :)

I also like relationships, not necessarily romantic but the way in which people interact with one another, the undercurrents that flow between them, the affection or otherwise, the friendships built on firm foundations. Gen is absolutely fine with me, because I love character driven stories, but if you want to write pairing fic then some of the things I like are subtlety and understated feelings - I'm more for quiet or awkward exchanges than outright declarations of love unless outright declarations are in character, but again feel free to write what you want to write in that line. If you're going for romance, I don't mind whether you write plot or PWP, because I'm all about the connections between the characters. I like snark and banter if that's in character, but I also love the quiet moments, gentle touches (whether platonic or shippy). As far as subject matter goes, at the end of the day it's the words and the rhythms of them that make me happy so whether you want to go slice of life, deeply plotted, or simply write a thousand words of porn, it's all good with me.

Dislikes

My pet hates are minimising the contributions of female characters or erasing them from the narrative. Other things include characters acting out of character to further the plot rather than the plot arising out of the characters (I love character driven plots - they're my favourite kind). I don't mind hurt/comfort as long as there is some comfort, but I'm not fond of non-con (although I can deal with it when it's canon).

I also have a massive embarrassment/public humiliation squick, meaning that I can't read about people who are being (deliberately or otherwise) made a fool of, embarrassed in public or making a fool of themselves (and I get even more embarrassed on their behalf if it's them making a fool of themselves and they don't even realise it /o\). It's a visceral, face burning, flailing for the backbutton thing for me, I'm afraid, but it is limited to the kind of thing where I'd be utterly mortified if I was in the character's position (and if they're not, then where I'd be mortified on their behalf as an observer).

I'm afraid that agendafic or extreme kink doesn't do a great deal for me, although I do like sexy things (so don't worry if you want to go explicit, although it's certainly not necessary), and I quite like some mild kinky things like pegging, women on top etc. I'm also quite fond of threesomes where the characters have chemistry although again I prefer mixed threesomes, with f/m/m being my catnip. Also, because Yuletide is my happy place, please no character death or resolutely unhappy endings (angsty or bittersweet are fine, as long as there's some hope).

Hopefully that hasn't scared you off :-) so onto the actual requests, organised alphabetically! The bits in italics are what I actually put into my sign up :)
