Dear Amazing Yuletide Author:

Thanks, first of all, for writing! That is really the most important thing, and I will be delighted with whatever I wind up getting. I am scamming most of this from my last year’s letter (including this line!), so hopefully it will retain some amount of coherency.

So first of all.... Generally speaking, I like stories that tell me a little bit more about the characters or the world they live in. I like stories with plot - with adventure, intrigue, and wacky hijinks. I also like stories that are more focused on character exploration – I don't need action if I have interesting introspection. I like both insider and outsider PoV stuff, and I feel like it is perfectly legit to write a story about a character that isn't from their perspective. I enjoy stories that are very emotionally intense, whether that means they are spilling over with ~feels~ or dark and unrelenting in tone – I enjoy horror, especially psychological horror, but also feel-good fluff. I am into both Crueltide and Yuleporn, so if those are your jam, please have at! I plan to post to the challenge posts with some ideas for each. I'm also open to other sub-challenges, if my requests fit the bill and you're inspired :)

I like porn, but I do not require it. If you have a preference for or against in whatever you wind up writing, knock yourself out, I will appreciate it. If you include porn, I prefer it to be somehow relevant to the story – either it develops character relationships, or is vital to some zany caper or what have you. I’m not a big fan of pwp, though I think porn can certainly *be* the main action, so to speak, as long as it is showing me something new about characters or their relationship. I'm really hard to squick, so don't be afraid to show me your kinks! More than anything, when it comes (heh) to porn I want to be able to believe that the sex I'm reading is in character for whoever I'm reading about – not necessarily that it is something they want, but that the reactions I'm reading are true to whoever is having them, if that makes any sense.

If you are looking to find out more about me, I have a more mundane and fairly neglected lj/dw over at [personal profile] elanya, and I am I am often online in the yuletide chat (which you can find out how to access here), either as Lan-home, hippo-Lan, or some other similar configuration of Lan- somethingorother. I am also Measured_Words on AO3 :)

On to the specifics! Please note that these are in no meaningful order. Some of these requests are more elaborate purely because there was more to scan from previous letters -
it doesn't mean I wan them any more or less than the others. Also, Optional Details are Optional - I hope these will give you some ideas if you need them, and some helpful insights into what I love about the canons and the characters, but if you have other ideas I haven't thought of feel free to run with them as well :D

Yas Delit is a composer who enjoys the patronage of the King.

Trouble is, she is a revolutionary at heart.


-This one is all about revolution and political dissent through music. I liked the main character a lot, probably because of her resentment and her efforts to undermine the society she feels shackled to.

Quest's End

Brun - Garmarna (Song) (share also not on this one... hmmm, interesting! I now have Additional Suspicions...)

-This is a reaaaaaaally interesting take on this song, where not only does the maiden manage to get the better of Brun, the man who was going to murder her as he had several others, but their contest is part of a much longer epic. Her role, if not less passive, exactly, is more premeditated. It has a really great atmosphere, and as much as I love the others, I think this one hist the most of my buttons. I was positively *spoiled* this year, all told - and the collection is full of other excellent stories as well! YOu shoudl go check them out!

Today was author reveals for Space Swap! I wrote three things: two Voltron and one Clone Wars.

One of the Voltrons was my assignment. I was assigned to Longpig (my sister, who I live with). And she was assigned to Wererogue (My BiL, who I also live with). And he was assigned to me. Which made for some interesting times in the house! I figured it out right away, and she wound up telling him after he'd read the story, I think, but I didn't tell either of them until today :V But this meant I had to write a decoy story! It was really hard because they *both* needed me to figure out answers to some complicated canon questions! And I don't like working on multiple stories at once anyway. So, that was challenging. I'm not sure if it was better or worse that they were the same fandom... They didn't really have much crossover of characters, but they do share some headcanon :p The Clone Wars story was a pinch hit that I picked up! I got to write for Ventress, and I decided to tell the story of what happened to her light sabers after Bariss stole them in the final storyline of Season 5 :3

All in all a really excellent exchange experience :)

Dear Jukebox Operator:

Thank you very much for writing something for me. I want to say first of all that if you have a strong idea about what you want to write, please feel free to run with it! I have tried to give some general ideas of things that I think might be cool for the stories, but for the most part I'm pretty open to interpretations. I'm okay with any rating, I don't have any real squicks or triggers. I like things that are scary and creepy and straight up horrific, but I also like things that a cute or funny or fluffy (though I'm not sure if any of the songs I picked really lean that way). I don't need happy endings, but I do enjoy them. If you have different ideas though, lemme have 'em! I like character introspection, I like world building, I like plot. I like porn, but I prefer plot to go with it. I don't know if any of these really lend themselves to porn, but if you think differently, lemme have it! Really, go wild! I'm pretty easy to please! Also, I am super into the idea of crossovers between any of the songs I'm requesting - I think some of them could go together pretty interestingly, so if there's an idea that strikes you along those lines please have at.

I am really excited for this fest, possibly more than is rational. I have a longstanding love of folk music and other forms of ballads and song-stories, and I like thinking about what we don't know as much as what we do. The canons we have to work with here are mostly pretty loose, and I'm excited to see where people go with them. I recognize that this is a lot closer to original fic than most fandom-fests, and I appreciate that it can be harder to make things up whole cloth, so really, thank you! Write what you want, what inspires you, and hopefully what is below has some good ideas if you're feeling lost!

It you are a podficer or a podfic team - I'm super excited, as I've never received a podfic for an exchange before! I think writing a story you know is destined for an aural medium is a cool challenge, and I know the recording of a podfic can be pretty challenging itself, so major props for offering! In this case, since the canon is also aural I think it is an especially interesting pairing! I am a big fan of podcasted/podficed short fiction, but I don't know if I can give any specific likes/dislikes /o\

If you are an artist - I actually really enjoy pieces that have more abstract or symbolic elements to them, so if you want to play with themes and atmosphere rather than create something strictly representational from any of the songs I have requested, please feel free! I don't know if that makes things easier or not, but I appreciate you putting your talents to use for me, in whatever medium!

I am requesting Fanfic or Podfic for all requests and fanart for a few (but treats in any media would be a delight).

Dear Spacer,

Thanks, first of all, for writing! That is really the most important thing, and I will be delighted with whatever I wind up getting. I'm following my usual practice of cribbing heavily from other older letters, so hopefully it will retain some amount of coherency.

So first of all.... Generally speaking, I like stories that tell me a little bit more about the characters or the world they live in. I like stories with plot - with adventure, intrigue, and wacky hijinks. I also like stories that are more focused on character exploration – I don't need action if I have interesting introspection. I like both insider and outsider PoV stuff, and I feel like it is perfectly legit to write a story about a character that isn't from their perspective. I enjoy stories that are very emotionally intense, whether that means they are spilling over with ~feels~ or dark and unrelenting in tone – I enjoy horror, especially psychological horror, but also feel-good fluff.

I am definitely up for explicit stories for any of the requested "/" pairings! I don't have a list of specific squicks - I'm pretty open to stuff, and the delivery is really what's important. More than anything, when it comes (heh) to porn I want to be able to believe that the sex I'm reading is in character for whoever I'm reading about – not necessarily that it is something they want, but that the reactions I'm reading are true to whoever is having them, if that makes any sense. As for kinks, I like power dynamics, negotiation, all levels of consent (enthusiastic consent, ambiguous consent, dubcon, noncon), all kinds of sex (vaginal, anal, oral, intercrural, frottage, clothed, semiclothed, public, whatever!) knifeplay, breathplay, bdsm, blood, loyalty, kissing...a million other things I'm probably not thinking of. Basically, this is me.

As far as art goes, I should also note that I am interested in a variety of body shapes/sizes/colours, and I am also interested in symbolic representation and stylized art as well as more representational perspectives, as long as the requested characters are in some way identifiable in the piece.

I've never requested a vid before, so I am really curious as to what you might be able to do with these requests - I'm sorry if they aren't helpful, but anything that demonstrates or highlights or reveals aspects of characters or relationships would be cool! Totally down for crack here, also.

And now to the specifics!

Dear...confectioner?

Sure, let's go with that :)

I just wanted to give some general likes/dislikes beyond what I put in the specific sections of my signup (which are repeated below).

I'm really interested in the dynamics of relationships - what people are bringing to the table, what do they want to get, what do they want to give, and what happens where the needs and desires of two individuals meet. Do they compliment or conflict? Do they build up or tear down? How do they resolve? I think there are lots of ways of getting at these questions as well, from throwing them into wacky hijinks to see how they execute (or not) a particular caper, to throwing them in bed and seeing what they want when they're there. So, I'm not necessarily looking for any kind of introspection in a story, I just want to know a little more about what makes these people work (or not) as a unit. I know there are some really talented artists out there, as well as writers, and I'm interested to see how these can be conveyed visually as well as textually.

I am definitely up for explicit stories for any of the requested "/" pairings! I don't have a list of specific squicks - I'm pretty open to stuff, and the delivery is really what's important. So to speak. As for kinks, I like power dynamics, negotiation, all levels of consent (enthusiastic consent, ambiguous consent, dubcon, noncon), all kinds of sex (vaginal, anal, oral, intercrural, frottage, clothed, semiclothed, public, whatever!) knifeplay, breathplay, bdsm, blood, loyalty, kissing...a million other things I'm probably not thinking of.

As far as art goes, I should also note that I am interested in a variety of body shapes/sizes/colours, and I am also interested in symbolic representation and stylized art as well as more representational perspectives, as long as the requested characters are in some way identifiable in the piece.

And now, Requests!

Since I seem to be on something of a posting spree over here...

1. Your 3 fanfics with the most comments:
Top by comments is not a fic, but rather the Interactive Fiction game I wrote for Yuletide 2014: Expanded Horizons - #yuletide RPF

My top actual fic is also #yuletide rpf, from Yuletide 2010: The Doom of the Hippos.

Second is from the Fans and Fan-Byproducts exchange from 2013: Tamika Flynn: Librarian Hunter. Welcome to Night Vale. This is the fic of mine that gets the most regular attention, despite being thoroughly jossed.

Third (by comment threads, anyway) is a drabble I wrote for Yuletide Madness 2009: Indiana Jones and the Profile of Soil which is an Indiana Jones archaeology story, clearly.

2. Your 3 fanfics with the most kudos:
...are all for Night Vale, huh. I kind of rode the wave in on that one, posting a number of things just as it was getting big. That said, while these are all big for me, they're not big at all for the fandom.

First is Seductive Tendrils, which is explicit Cecil/Carlos tentacle and hair play.

Second is Tamika Flynn: Librarian Hunter again

Third is another drabble! A Difficult Matter which is about Khoshekh.

3. Your oldest fanfic:
On AO3: The New Game. Fall of Ile Rien casefic starring Gerard and Nicholas.

On the broader internet? Uh. Starting here with chapter three when I took over the character from someone else. I'm not sure it can even be read in a logical order anymore, since the time line seems to be gone.

4. Your latest fanfic:
Is a drabble that I don't think quite works how I wanted it to, about how the First Order gets its stormtroopers. Star Wars, clearly, and based on the new movie: When They Come

5. Your proudest fanfic:
The one I'm most proud of? Man, that's a tough call. I really have no idea how to rate them. I could give a list of ones I am proud of and still pleased with and why but that's not what the meme is asking for. Maybe if someone else asks for it ;p

6. Your longest fanfic:
Longest complete fic: Seasons (Adventure World, Vedran Callais/OMC, pre-canon)

7. Your 3 fanfics with the most bookmarks:
Some repeats, unsurprisingly:
Seductive Tendrils (which has 7 invisible bookmarks, because porn)
Tamika Flynn: Librarian Hunter

And the third is one that would be on my theoretical list for #5: Unforgettable. Another Yuletide Treat, this time in Neil Gaiman's American Gods. Hermes/Original Female Character. I'm really proud of the character I created here, of how I did Hermes, of how I integrated the Greek gods, and the way I pulled in real life setting details in the same way the book did.

8. Your top 3 crossover fics:
Uh, do I have three crossovers? I must... they're probably all crack. Oh I do- I have five! And only two of the top ones are crack!

Puppy of Interest: Hannibal/Person of Interest.

(The) Dreaming: Inception/Sandman Comics (drabble).

This is Blue's Design: Hannibal/Blue's Clues.

9. My favourite characters to write:
I have no idea how to pick! It varies a lot. Whoever is loudest in my head, I guess? I like writing for RPG characters for that reason, and also because it helps me learn a lot about them.

The Call

She woke with a power alive inside her.

At first she thought it was her power.

Walking alone, in the park under the moon, along an empty street under yellow-orange street lamps, she raised her arms.

"Come to me," she called.

She could still feel it, coiling in her chest.

Come to me

"Yes," she answered.

It expanded; she was claimed.

And having finished that one... Well it would probably be silly of me to start a new one, having just got a trope bingo card I haven't started on. But I'm going to do it anyway! If you haven't played before - give me a prompt for an unclaimed letter of the alphabet (usually one or two words, always starting with that letter), a fandom, and a character and pairing, and I'll do what I can. You can see what fandoms I've played in before at AO3, but original prompts are fine as well. You can always ask if you want me to try a fandom I've not written in before as well :) Obviously, I make no promises as to how, uh, promptly they will get filled - but they *will* get filled!

This meme has been gong around - I've seen from a few people now, and I thought it was interesting! It was also really challenging to come up with stuff, but I think these are answers I can more or less stand behind. Did I miss anything? Is there anything that other people see as being hallmarks of my work, or that they would like to see me try a hand at?

Ten things that you think are common in your fic
Family stuff
Complicated relationships
Psychological horror
Stories inspired by roleplaying characters/settings
Minor/secondary/original characters
Canon compliance
Moral ambiguity
Exploration of identity/identity performance
Polyamory
Non-linear story-telling

Ten things you think are uncommon in your fic although commonly found in fic in general
Long stories featuring major canon characters
Aus
Tropes played straight
Crack for serious canons
Porn without plot
Fluff
Simplicity
Crossovers/fusions
Large fandoms
Normative gender roles

Ten things you wish were more true of your fic
Broader audience appeal
More purely original work
Elegance: Complexity without convolution
Better execution of various writing techniques
Avoidance of stock phrases/descriptions
Less reliance on physical description/choreographic writing
More experimentation with narrative styles, forms, and voices
Greater diversity of focal characters
Greater volume
More working outside my comfort zone
