Yuletide Letter - 2016! The Yuletidening

Dear Yuletide writer,

Thanks so much for writing for me!

I'm gonna list some general tropes and things I enjoy before I break it down by fandom. These are just a few of the many things I enjoy in fic, so please don't feel pressured to follow this letter to the letter! (Also I've totally cribbed from my older letters where my preferences haven't changed.)


In general:

I love canon-divergence AUs - what would happen if it went THIS way instead of THAT way. I enjoy dysfunctional relationships between characters who are morally opposed to each other and who ought to be (or are) enemies. I love "dark knights" & "paladins" (and shipping these types together.) I love characters who are morally polarized and amoral characters who blur the lines. I like it when very different characters are forced to work together and/or learn one another's ways. I also enjoy different cultures learning each others' ways as well, human and alien societies getting to know one another.

Some major kinks/tropes I enjoy: good guys turning to evil/the Dark Side/what have you; forced transformation/transformation trauma/body horror; evil twins and doppelgangers; mind control (especially if the character's conscious of it, but can't fight it); dubcon; monsters and xeno; creepy abandoned places (dark temples, etc) and dark cults; technology and posthumanism.

I love snark and characters sassing each other. I'm a fan of gen/slash/femslash/het/whatever. Anything goes. When I ship two characters, I enjoy both platonic and romantic relationships, as it's the character interaction that's the most important thing to me. I love when good triumphs over evil...but good has to go through a lot of shit to get there. I like darkfic with a happy ending...but that could be anything from the good guys winning to joining the bad guys. <---- especially this last part

DNW: I don't have many, but I'd request you ask a Yuletide hippo if you're thinking of including something you fear might be unexpected or unwanted. Please no: straight-up noncon/rapefic, AUs that remove characters from the canon setting, issuefic, A/B/O, suicide references, dismemberment, or major character death. If writing a genderswap prompt I'd like the character's gender identity to remain intact i.e. independent of their new physiology, please. Thanks!



My requests! (Random order)


Dungeon Fighter | Dungeon & Fighter (Male Slayer, Priest)

I'd love to get something here about the origin story of either one of these characters, or both! I love the little details of Arad and the Grimdark McEvil classes are my favorite. I'm really into the whole demon possession thing. For Priest I'm especially interested in Avenger, of course, or in a non-Avenger Priest who struggles with temptation.We see a little bit of the background for M. Slayer and Priest in their opening stories, so I'd love anything that explores them a little more, or follows them on their journeys as adventurers. I'm not very high level (70 ish?) but I'm having a hard time finding/following the story in this game, so spoilers are totally OK. It'd be great to hear about canonical Slayers and Priests or about your own character~! What I'd love to see is something exploring/developing the world of Arad and how these classes deal with their faith/demon issues/other struggles. Darkish is OK. I'm totally fine with you exploring one or both of these characters, gen/slash/whatever is also welcome. Weird idea: I'd even be OK with a "modern girl/guy in arad" type self-insert, complete with genderfuck if your insert character is female. Just give me all that great monstery angst, drama and adventure!



Sigma Star Saga (Ian Recker, Psyme, Commander Zelly)

I would love literally anything with these characters, in any combination. I'd love to see some xenophilia, intrigue, space politics, war stories. I think this could be a great setting for some Enemy Mine-type shenanigans, learning one anothers' culture, etc. I'd love to see, while Recker and Psyme are working together, Recker playing good, obedient soldier to Commander Zelly...smut welcome. I was also intrigued by the symbiont armor worn by the Krill and the fact that Ian has no problem wearing it - I'd love to see some insight on what that feels like. I love Recker and Psyme snarking at each other and Commander Zelly being a boss. Seeing the game come to a bad end, with worlds destroyed...what might happen then? I'd love to read an AU about their lives in exile. I'd enjoy gen, Recker/Psyme, Recker and Psyme friendship, Zelly/Recker, a threesome, all is good. Heck, if you wanted to give me a genderswapped-by-alien-science Recker f/f/f I would be totally down. Xeno, tentacles, I think a lot of things would work great here!


Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits: (Kharg, Darc)

Prompt ideas:
- Darc, Kharg, Darc/Kharg, Kharg/Darc Darc + Kharg
- Two sides of the same coin
- Kharg is the one with a more Deimos personality
- Twincest
- Role reversal - Kharg on the run, Darc in a position of responsibility (postgame?)
- Darc has to save Kharg's ass - from the humans
- Darc, Kharg or both regrow their wings. Or turn full Deimos. Awwwwyeah.
- Wingkink, flight
- Rough play or rough sex
- Kharg has fangs. Darc is amused by this.
- Deimos are...different.

I love the relationship between these two, whether platonic or slash. Great rivals. I believe Kharg has a Deimos's heart in a human body, and Darc a human heart in a Deimos one. ...Still think they'd bare teeth at each other a lot. I would love to see Kharg being forced to come to terms with his Deimos heritage, and Darc introducing him to it. I would absolutely love any kind of transformation fic here where Kharg comes to resemble the half-Deimos he is, or somehow he and/or Darc become full Deimos (seems like the big macguffin near the end of the game could cause this.) I'd also love more detail on Deimos culture and maybe Darc and Kharg having to do some traditional activity or ritual together to support the Drakyr. Please no noncon (dubcon is okay), or Kharg-bashing. He's a douche, but I love him. Wouldn't mind him getting taken down a peg though.


I hope this was helpful! Please don't hesitate to contact a Yuletide hippo if you have any questions or need clarification, if you want to include something but aren't sure if it's okay, etc.

MOST IMPORTANTLY. Have fun! Happy Yuletide.

My requests! (Random order)


Final Fantasy XIV (Warrior of Light, Fray)

So this prompt necessarily has spoilers for the level 50 Dark Knight quest. If you don't want to be spoiled, look away!

I absolutely loved the DRK 30-50 questline. I loved seeing Fray put a voice to the WoL's (and our) frustration with the constant demands of a helpless populace. I'd love to see what happens next... although the Warrior banishes their darkside - Fray - for now, Fray left us with the promise/threat that they would always be there to "step in" should the WoL need them. I'd especially like to see Fray returning to take over their body when the WoL is infuriated or threatened, and/or manifesting to thoroughly creep on, molest, and/or generally bother our hero. Encouraging them to give in to their darkness. Would love to see dubcon, selfcest, creepy DRK stuff, Fray as the voice in the WoL's head. If Fray had won, what might have happened then? Would they have gone off somewhere, would the WoL's friends come after them? Maybe a scene of lots of bloodlust, going berserk in a fight and Fray appearing afterward for fucked-up makeouts? Tons of great possibilities here, I think! I would love it if you could either A)write the Warrior and their darkside as female (Elezen female, if you really want to spoil my id!) or B) keep the Warrior and Fray gender and race unspecified by using writing conventions like first- or second-person perspective. I would especially love F/F for this prompt!


Sigma Star Saga (Ian Recker, Psyme, Commander Zelly)

I would love literally anything with these characters, in any combination. I'd love to see some xenophilia, intrigue, space politics, war stories.

Heck, if you wanted to give me a genderswapped-by-alien-science Recker and make it a lesbian threesome, I would be totally down. with. that. Xeno, tentacles, I think a lot of things would work great here!


Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits: (Kharg, Darc)

Prompt ideas:
- Darc, Kharg, Darc/Kharg, Kharg/Darc Darc + Kharg
- Two sides of the same coin
- Kharg is the one with a more Deimos personality
- Twincest

Yuletide letter!

Dear Yuletide writer,

Thanks so much for writing for me! I really appreciate it. You're awesome.

So, uh, I guess I'll just list some general tropes and things I enjoy before I break it down by fandom. These are just a few of the many things I enjoy in fic, so please don't feel pressured to follow this letter to the letter, or anything!


In general:

I enjoy dysfunctional relationships between characters who are morally opposed to each other and who ought to be (or are) enemies. I love "dark knights" & "paladins" (and shipping these types together.) I love characters who are morally polarized and amoral characters who blur the lines. I like it when very different characters are forced to work together and/or learn one another's ways. I also enjoy different cultures learning each others' ways as well, human and alien societies getting to know one another.

DNW: I don't have many, but I'd request you ask a Yuletide hippo if you're thinking of including something you fear might be unexpected or unwanted. I would prefer no: straight-up noncon, AUs that remove characters from the canon setting, suicide references, dismemberment, or major character death.



My requests! (Alphabetical)

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow & Dawn of Sorrow (Soma Cruz)

I loved these games so much. I'd really enjoy anything dealing with Soma's powers and the consquences of using or not using them. The idea of being stuffed full of monster souls is nicely creepy - how does Soma feel about all this? Is he still basically human inside, or is he different as a result of everything he's gone through? Does he feel different? Either postgame or in-game fic would be wonderful, for either game. I also love the creepy setting; I'd enjoy anything that played up the game's atmosphere. Interaction with the castle's monsters, the souls inside him, anything about Soma's feelings towards all this mass slaughter and frenzied running around. I would also totally enjoy and appreciate any sort of monstrous transformation and/or xeno if you feel so inclined. Soma has a few really weird abilities that might lend themselves well to this (giant manticore tail, superlong tongue, etc not to mention the fact that he can turn into all sorts of shit.) Anything goes as far as gen, pairings, whatever you like. Please feel free to include whatever other game characters or OCs you think are necessary as long as Soma's the central character.


Star Wars: Fatal Alliance (Shigar Konshi, Darth Chratis)

This book was a lot of fun! I thought there was a lot of potential for more trouble to be visited on Shigar. Darth Chratis was good at getting under Shigar's skin - what if he'd succeeded? What might have happened if Shigar hadn't been distracted during their battle and instead gave in to his anger? I also liked the short period of time they were forced to work together and would love to see more of the same. An AU where Darth Chratis unequivocally survived the end of the book would be great, especially if Shigar has to continue to interact with him for some reason. If Shigar's mission didn't end there, or if he really did become Chratis' apprentice, what might happen next...? Darth Chratis showing off his Force mastery, whether to Shigar or random enemies, would be awesome. Maybe sparring, Darth Chratis demonstrating skills Shigar can't match? I'd love to see them fight again, or just talking/arguing about the Force. Slash between these two would be totally welcome; dubcon and Dark force-use would be great as well.


Final Fantasy XIV (Thancred, Lahabrea)

I think my character choices here probably say a lot about my likes... I would love to see any and all interaction between these two, especially during the time when Thancred is possessed by Lahabrea. Mind control, manipulation, and sort of selfcesty dubcon would be delicious. Lahabrea taunting him, Thancred fighting him. Is Thancred conscious of Lahabrea's actions when Lahabrea is controlling his body? What are his thoughts about all the evil Lahabrea is enacting using his body? Has Lahabrea made him do anything else, anything especially bad? Or maybe something about Lahabrea's powers - it must be weird to have some Ascian dark magic being used with your body. Lahabrea's wicked laughter and delight in evil is a delight to me. I'd also enjoy anything about Lahabrea's motivations and plans, speculation is great! I think it would be great to see things from either character's POV as well, so feel free to go with whatever you like. If it were post-possession...I wonder what they'd have to say to each other? Is Thancred still vulnerable to possession, as the game seemed to indicate? Would they fight? So many possibilities and I like them ALL!


Magic: the Gathering (Jace Beleren, Ashiok)

Blue mages are assholes, it's a known fact. And I love it. I'd love to see any kind of conversation, interaction or showdown between these two. Feel free to handwave away the fact that Jace probably can't leave Ravnica if you wish. (Or set it before Ashiok shows up on Theros, whatever's good!) I'd love to see them trading spells and manipulations - in a way both are mind mages. Trading insults..well..Jace throwing insults would be fun. I love Jace, but I think Ashiok would probably come out on top in the end? I'd love to see Ashiok really unloading with those deeply disturbing nightmare powers and conjuring all sorts of horrors, real and not; Jace giving mostly as good as he gets. I adore Ashiok and would love to see the extent of the vast powers Ashiok seems to wield. Ashiok is so wonderfully inscrutable, I'd also enjoy anything either from Ashiok's POV or dealing with the fact that Jace isn't sure what Ashiok's up to. Darkfic is very welcome...Jace has a lot of skeletons and Ashiok's dedicated to finding them in everyone. Gen or not, xeno, dubcon, anything with the magic or monsters the two summon, planeswalking to unusual places, etc would rock. Ravnica is one of my favorite settings but I'd like others, especially original ones, as well. As Ashiok is canonically not gendered I'd prefer sticking with that and simply dodging pronouns by using the character's name, since we don't really know what Ashiok's perspective would be on the matter.


Sigma Star Saga (Ian Recker, Psyme, Commander Zelly)

Probably no one will read this prompt, because apparently nobody else played this game. It was great though!
I would love literally anything with these characters, in any combination. I'd love to see some xenophilia, intrigue, space politics, war stories. I think this could be a great setting for some Enemy Mine-type shenanigans, learning one anothers' culture, etc. I'd love to see, while Recker and Psyme are working together, Recker playing good, obedient soldier to Commander Zelly...smut welcome. I was also intrigued by the symbiont armor worn by the Krill and the fact that Ian has no problem wearing it - I'd love to see some insight on what that feels like. I love Recker and Psyme snarking at each other and Commander Zelly being a boss. Seeing the game come to a bad end, with worlds destroyed...what might happen then? I'd love to read an AU about their lives in exile. I'd enjoy gen, Recker/Psyme, Recker and Psyme friendship, Zelly/Recker, a threesome, all is good. Heck, if you wanted to give me a genderswapped-by-alien-science Recker and make it a lesbian threesome, I would be totally down. with. that. Xeno, tentacles, I think a lot of things would work great here!

Well, that was longer than expected. I hope this was helpful! Please don't hesitate to contact me through a Yuletide hippo if you have any questions or need clarification, if you want to include something but aren't sure if it's okay, etc.

MOST IMPORTANTLY. I want you to have fun! Happy Yuletide.

Dear Yuletide buddy!

Hello Yuletide writer! <3 Thank you so much for being awesome and writing for me!

I listed some of the fandomy things I enjoy below. But please don't feel pressured or stressed to follow things to the letter or anything, this is just an example of the sort of stuff I like :3

In general:
I have a thing for dysfunctional relationships, different cultures learning each others' ways, dark knights & paladins (and shipping these types together.) I love characters who are morally polarized and characters who blur the lines of morality. I love when good triumphs over evil, but good has to go through a lot of shit to get there. I like nearly everything; gen/slash/het/etc. I have a thing for xenokink, technology, transformation, mind control, falling to the Dark Side etc. When I ship two characters, I enjoy both platonic and romantic relationships, as it's the character interaction that's the most important thing to me. I love snark.


Fandoms and Characters in Alphabetical Order:

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits: Kharg and Darc

I love the relationship between these two, whether platonic or slash. Great rivals. I believe Kharg has a Deimos's heart in a human body, and Darc a human heart in a Deimos one. ...Still think they'd bare teeth at each other a lot.

DNW: Noncon (dubcon is okay), Kharg-bashing. He's a douche...and my favorite character. Wouldn't mind him getting taken down a peg though.


Golden Witchbreed: Ruric and Christie

- Ruric/Christie very appreciated, Ruric and Christie also loved!

- Running away together?
- Snark

- Shared culture/surprising things that are the same + intriguing differences

These two played off each other well and I wish they'd had more time to interact! Their complicated relationship makes me think things. Naughty things. I'd love to see them talk and learn about each others' culture. I am happy with anything here, but especially intimacy either physical or emotional.

DNW: Anything relating to the second book, Ancient Light.

DNW: Anything goes. Though I'm not real fond of Scarlett.


MOST IMPORTANTLY. I want you to have fun! Please don't hesitate to contact me anonymously or through Yuletide channels, etc. Thanks again! <3

Yuletide letter!

Greetings Yulegoat! Thanks so much for being my Yuletide buddy. Seriously, you're the best. You rock me like Amadeus. Baby.

I have typed a thing. Which is intended to help guide you. Please don't feel pressured or stressed to follow things to the letter or anything, I just thought this might help you judge what I was into and might enjoy in a Yuletide story. The fandom-specific things/themes are suggestions for things I love and you certainly don't have to follow all of them, though I admit I'd love it if you took them under advisement. <3

In general:

I like all things dark, ominous, suspenseful; I love humor that's well-integrated into a story. I have a thing for dysfunctional relationships, different cultures learning each others' ways, dark knights & paladins (and shipping these types together.) I love characters who are morally polarized and characters who blur the lines of morality. I love when good triumphs over evil, but good has to go through a lot of shit to get there. I like nearly everything; gen/slash/het/etc. I have a thing for xenokink, technology, transformation, mind control, falling to the Dark Side etc. When I ship two characters, I enjoy both platonic and romantic relationships, as it's the character interaction that's the most important thing to me.

- Tron/Alan, Alan/Tron, Alan + Tron
- '82 era, or Legacy
- First time
- Xenophilia
- Different cultures/Anthropology (focus on program!culture)
- ~soulbond~
- circuitsex, Alan with circuits

I seriously love this pair. Getting to know each other, Alan's more reserved personality versus Tron's confidence and User-worship, and how they mesh...

DNW: Evil!Alan, rape, really sad endings. I'd prefer '82-era but if you'd rather Legacy!Alan I won't A BLOO BLOO BLOO. He's fine too.

I forgot to edit this earlier - removed Xenogears to speed up matching. :( Next year!

Xenogears: Id and Fei

- Id, Fei, Id/Fei, Id + Fei

- giving in to your Id
- self-control, loss of control
- Id's aggression, Fei returning some of it
- Id putting the moves on Fei, who either hates it, or hates that he likes it
- Arguing with oneself

I'd love to see something like conversation between Id and Fei. Id being the devil on his shoulder, something like that. Evil seduction.

MOST IMPORTANTLY. I want you to have fun! Please don't hesitate to contact me anonymously or through Yuletide channels, etc. Thanks again! <3

Since I haven't been writing any of the new fic I am supposed to be working on, I thought I'd at least put up some of the ficlets that had been languishing on my hard drive. D: The two at the bottom have been around for a while, I just forgot to link them here, eheheheh. These were all for comment_fic! Two Burn Notice ficlets and one Burn Notice/Chuck crossover. That comm's pretty fun, gets you writing in a no-stress sort of environment. :3 ANYWAY. Without further ado!


"Road Trip" - Michael/Victor preslash
Summary: Michael convinces Victor to ditch the boat and flee overland.
(It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it!)

"Landscaping" - Sam, Michael, Fi
Summary: Dealing with a zombie epidemic.
(I put down the empty gas can and heft my weapon. Then I heft my beer for one last swig.)

"Computer Emergency" - Chuck, Michael
Summary: A burned spy walks into a Buy More...
("Hi and welcome to Buy More, how may I help you?")

Pizzataim

Ohmigosh. So much pizza.

Just fyi, Domino's pizza still blows, don't believe their ad campaign. However, CinnaSticks are pretty much manna from the gods, so I guess it evens out.

So...still no spacebar. I called again and they swear it'll be here by Friday *sob* (Yes, I am still copy-pasting all my spaces.)

I had to go in to do my re-employment assessment interview, which was a lot less painful than I had previously assumed. It was also largely en español (oh miami ilu ♥ ), but the woman explaining the forms was very easy to understand and explained everything clearly. So I don't totally fail at Spanish! I got some info on training classes as well, in case I need to like...change careers. Looks like they offer a lot of free computer certifications...

Between that, trolling for fic, and setting up my printer, it was pretty much a day! Now I must go kill time until White Collar.

Oh yeah! Also I wrote a fic over at my fic journal here. It's a Chuck fic~ People seem to like it, I'm really stoked. Was fun too. (Sorry Ali...still haven't finished that Bee/Sam. Please to not be killing me ;-;!!!) I have a general idea for an NCIS/Chuck crossover fic now, but it'll probably need to wait UNTIL I HAVE A SPACE BAR AGAIN AFSDAFDSASD;;;

In summary: Unemployment is boring, TV is stealing my life away, and I just ate a LOT of pizza. Cheers!

A busy weekend!

Whoo! Man, I got a ton of shit done this weekend!

So uh, let's see. I had Friday off, so I did go in to Sears and scored a pretty cool looking bed set for half what it had been, before. I noticed two neat-looking purple pillows on a clearance rack...They were little rectangles made of a rough silk.  Marked down from 30$ to 6$! So, new couch pillows.
I ran by Ross and got a few things that may be useful for my costume, though I still need to dig up, well.  An undershirt. From the closet, somewhere.

I also went to Joann's and spent about a bazillion dollars on fabric, ribbon and elastic; but I think the money spent on a nicer fabric will be worth it.  A nice lady gave me a coupon so I saved 10$.  Sweet!

Saturday I played FFXI, got some grocery shopping and cleaning done, exercised...Finished painting a bulletin board...Watched Deadliest catch like, all day.

I must say, those Space Bags? Freaking awesome. I have no words.  I bought one set for like, 20$, and packed away a comforter, a bunch of sheets and blankets, and two pillows.  In the space I cleared I was able to store all that had been there originally plus the uncompressed comforter off my bed and two pillows with room to spare.  And it was easy! I'm sold.  Next time I'm at Target I will pick up several more.

--------------------

I didn't do anything for the 4th except stay up really late, though Dad and I will get together next weekend, instead.  However, I did finish betareject's meme! Here goes!

"Here’s the deal. You take your music player whatever program you use you play some music on shuffle. Every time a song starts you must write a drabble from a fandom of your choice. Doesn’t matter who you write as or what fandom they belong in. The catch is as soon as the song is over so is your ficlet. Do this with Ten songs and then post them up…"

This was very hard, but fun. I just went with whatever fandom came to mind first.

Ficlets

I finished my ficlets for the drabble meme! Calling them "drabbles" seemed disingenuous, none of them are that short. >_>; But I haven't had the desire to write for so long, I couldn't bear to cut them down to size. So, without further ado~
