Hello! Welcome to the most wonderful time of the year, and I'm super-excited you're writing a story for me. Here's some expansion on my requests:

SLEEPY HOLLOW (TV series)
I'm interested in an OTP between Ichabod and Abbie, and what that might look like. Domestic scenes are great, or work scenes if you'd like, either fighting against the Apocalypse or in some bright future where they avert it all and live to tell the tale and have grandchildren and etc. I'm not opposed to Katrina joining them as part of a triad. If Ichabod and Katrina's relationship ended, I'd like that depicted or referred to in a realistic way.

(I anticipate the relationship between Ichabod and Katrina may have shifted on the show, but I'm a few episodes behind as of 10/28. I'll be all caught up before Yuletide, though!)

THE LYNBURN LEGACY (Sarah Rees Brennan)
The final reconnection in the Lynburn legacy may have been a little too perfect, but I don't care. Kami and Jared became their own people, and still decided that they loved best being together. Y'know, really together. I'm intrigued as to what that relationship might look like 10, 20, 30 years down the line. Do they travel and freak strangers out by how in tandem they are? Do they settle in Sorry-in-the-Vale and have children? Poor children who can never try to hoodwink one parent by telling the other parent said something different? Give me a glimpse of their life in the future, and bonus points for Angela (and/or Holly, not necessarily still together), how Kami's parents are doing, Aunt Lillian, and old Man Whatshisname with his sheep. And epic tales of Rusty's laziness, in memoriam.


THE MAGICIANS (Lev Grossman)
The Magicians by Lev Grossman was a pretty engrossing read (pun not intended), and I really do not like the main character. He is such an ass. I do like Alice a lot - she could be mean and petty as well, but she was also an amazing woman and magician in her own right. I want to see what happened to her from the other side - how did she actually change when transformed into a niffin? Did her conscious, Alice-governed life really end with the transformation? (Yeah, I've only read The Magicians at this point. I tried to see if Alice is written about more in the two subsequent novels, but that's super difficult to do without spoilers. So, uh, just fulfill this as creatively as you can with awesome Alice moments both pre- and post-niffining?)

Dear Yuletide Santa:

Thank you so much for writing for me! It is a special sort of delight to have a story written with me in mind, and I'm glad you're here to do so. Have fun with this, and I know I will enjoy whatever you create!

Here's a little something about my general likes and dislikes:

I love quirky stories with witty dialogue. I think strong female agency, queer representation, and POC representation are all parts of a balanced (read: good) fic. All characters are created equal.

I love to laugh. I like to look at established stories in a different way, either by tweaking a detail to spin the universe out in a new direction or by telling the story from an overlooked perspective. Or both.

In the realm of things I do not like: essentially, I do not like characters that don't act like themselves. I find it very difficult to suspend disbelief and enjoy a fic when the characters aren't acting or speaking like themselves.

Here are my requests again, possibly with further expansion:

Optional details are optional. )



And that's all I've got, dear Yuletide Santa. Once again, thank you, and I hope you have a blast!

Dear Yuletide Santa:

I always find it difficult to write these letters, so I apologize if my letter is not very helpful. Really, I thought mainly to collect my requests for you into one easily consulted post.

I love quirky stories with witty dialogue. Either slash or het is fine, although I don't necessarily prefer stories that are mainly vehicles for sexual situations (at least not in the fandoms I've requested this year). I like crossovers. I think strong female agency, queer representation, and POC representation are all parts of a balanced (read: good) fic. All characters are created equal.

I love to laugh. I like to look at established stories in a different way, either by tweaking a detail to spin the universe out in a new direction or by telling the story from an overlooked perspective. Or both.

I like well-done crazy mad stories that just take something bizarre and run with it. Surrealism, when done well and with intelligent commentary, is completely awesome. And just because it's intelligent doesn't mean the abject avoidance of LOL-language or memelicious slang. You know, if that's appropriate.

I will probably like whatever you take the time and effort to write for me: thank you for doing this, Yuletide writer!

Just a few notes on things I do not like: I do not like rape-centric fiction, heavily-detailed BDSM scenes, characters who don't act like themselves, or actual-end-of-the-world fic.
