Hello fabulous Yuletide author! Thank you for offering to write a thing I wanted! Please find below my requests...

Fandom: Rick & Morty

Characters: Summer Smith, Rick Sanchez, Morty Smith

From my letter last year, nothing has changed:

Family and history is what fascinates me about this show. Rick is not the heartless bastard he presents himself as. Well, not entirely, anyway. Under his bluster and vodka is a man who actually does care about the people in his life. Who was he before? How did he get to space? What made him leave Earth and his family there?
I'm especially interested in his relationships with Beth and Summer.

Also, Beth. To be a veterinarian is a huge accomplishment, let alone to do so as a young mother. I want to know about her, about her relationships with Jerry and Summer, and of course, her father. (The Beth stuff is from last year's letter when she was an offered character. If you feel like writing about her, that would be great, but don't feel obligated!)

Note: Rick/Morty is my NOTP. Please, none of this 'ship.


Fandom: Black-ish

Characters: Diane Johnson

Diane is hands down my favorite character on the show. She's the smartest and funniest and cleverest in her whole family.
I'd love a story that highlights her brilliance. Feel free to play with genre, too. The show already did 1920s noir, but don't let that constrain you either. When she's daydreaming, what does Diane imagine? What fantastical scenario would she put herself in? High fantasy? Space opera? Political intrigue? Who is she outsmarting, and why? She's got everyone's number, after all.

Have fun with it!


Fandom: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Characters: Charlie Kelly

I just...I just want to see Charlie have a good day. However that happens, I want him to be fed, safe, and warm, if only for 24 hours.
Alternately, if you want to write something more meaty, I firmly believe that Charlie Kelly is a tragic case of non-traditional high intelligence in a person with no resources and no one to advocate for him. Tell me a story where that wasn't the case. Basically, Flowers for Charlie, but a look at who he'd have been without the Nightman or a physically-present-but-mentally-absent mother.


Lastly, my favorite element of Yuletide is how creative people get. AUs and crossovers are some of my favorite things, so please let your imagination run away with you. As always, if you click the Yuletide tag, you'll find my letters from earlier years, if you want more info about what I like.

Thank you!!

Dearest Author!!

Thank you so much for offering $ThingWeWereMatchedWith!

I'm psyched to see where you'll run with things. :)

Rick & Morty

Family and history is what fascinates me about this show. Rick is not the heartless bastard he presents himself as. Well, not entirely, anyway. Under his bluster and vodka is a man who actually does care about the people in his life. Who was he before? How did he get to space? What made him leave Earth and his family there?

Hamilton

Like everyone else on the internet, I am ass over teakettle for Hamilton.

I am fascinated by Alexander's relationships. Most specifically, with Eliza and Angelica Schuyler, and with John Laurens. (And about fifty other people, but Yuletide asks us to keep it to a dull roar, you know?)

I am interested in these four people and their relationships to each other. Dinner party, epistolary (I LOVE EPISTOLARY), journal entries. However you want to present it, I want to read about it.

Ghostbusters

Dana Barrett and Janine Melnitz are the unsung badasses of these stories. Tell me a story of how they had to get into jumpsuits themselves and save the day. Bonus if Dana's cello skills factor in somehow. Double bonus if they end up taking over the business.

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

Author, a further note.

Feel free to use any elements of my requests for any of the fandoms I've asked for. If you write me a badass ghost busting epistolary Rick & Morty, that would be dope. Or a ghost busting family study about Hamilton and his friends. Or a family study about the Ghost Busters, Inc. I really just love how creative people get with Yuletide.

Seriously, the sand box is over there, get crazy with it. Possibly even...Schwifty.

Above all, please have fun with it.

Thank you!!!

Hello Yuletide Author!

Apologies for this being written after assignments got sent!

Stuff I love: I love thinky gen fic. Especially for the fandoms I've requested this year. Which isn't to say I don't also love smut! I'm pretty easy to please, honestly. Here is my Dear Yuletide Author letter from last year. I summed things up pretty well there. As I said last year, here are the fics I've written, and here are my bookmarks. My bookmarks are where the serious corners of my id live, so please don't think they're 100% what I'm looking for. I just want you to get an idea of what I like!

On to the specificity!!

Bojack Horseman
I am so taken with this show. I want to know about how Diane met Mr. Peanut Butter. I want to know about how Charlotte met Herb and Bojack. I want to know how Todd and Mr. Peanut Butter's business ventures go! I want to know what happened to Sarah Lynn. Well, what else happened to Sarah Lynn. The show has given us some amazingly diverse, deep, layered characters. I want to see your take on them!

The Good Wife
Sooooo....my ship became canon last season. Eli Gold is my favorite character on the show, and I punched the air and squeed when he and Natalie Flores kissed. I want to see where this takes them!! Smut, if you're feeling it, would be definitely welcome!

I also love Diane Lockhart, and the way she was jerked around last season hurt me in my soul. I want to know what's going on with her. She's been hurt, let's see some comfort. (It doesn't even have to be from her husband. It could be bonding with Alicia or Kalinda!)

Daria
Aww, it's baby's first fandom! No, seriously, this show was one of the first times I really got entrenched in a fandom.

Where is Daria today? What is she doing? She and I basically grew up together, so I'm interested in what the last fourteen years were for her, too.

My One Nope: I'm not interested in a high school or college story. I want to know about Daria as an adult. It doesn't need to be her in 2014, but her younger life is pretty well documented. Thank you!!

The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ & Amal
Oh, I love these boys so much.

I want to know about TJ's life. Who is he? How did he end up in the fix he was in when he met Amal?

I'd love some smut too, if that's where your muse takes you.


Thank you so much, Author!

Dearest Yuletide Author!

Thank you so much for offering [Thing]! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

To get an idea of what I like, please take a look at my AO3. Here are the fics I've written, and here are my bookmarks.

My bookmarks are where the serious corners of my id live, so please don't think they're 100% what I'm looking for. I just want you to get an idea of what I like!

My fic tastes are kinda like this Kate or Die comic, so...yeah.

I love a good First Time story, long thinky character pieces, or just something cracky and entertaining.

I'll get more specific in my requests.

Thank you so much, Dear Author!

Elfquest

Skywise. Skywise. SKYWIIIIISE.

Did I mention Skywise?

Skywise is such a wonderful, tragic, awesome character, and IMO, one of the best in the whole series.

I OT3 ship him with Cutter and Leetah, but I also love that he basically finds elves all over the world and falls for them, too.

I especially liked his relationship with Aroree.

My headcanon is that he's, if not bi, definitely bi for the right person.

I would love some Skywise smut, if you're so inclined.

If not, a story about his loves, him letting go of his wolfblood...anything. I love Skywise, and I'm interested to see what your thoughts are about him, too!


The Good Wife

If you ask me who my favorite character is, my answer will depend on my mood and the time of day.

Usually, though, it's Eli Gold.

I'd love a character study of him and his relationships with the different women on the show. Alicia, Kalinda, Diane...all of them interact with him in very different ways.

If you really want to make my Yuletide, I'd love a what-if/fix-it fic where he and Natalie Flores have a romance. I shipped it like FedEx, and it broke my heart when she went to Canada with her tone-deaf boyfriend.

If you're not into writing Eli, then Diane, Kalinda, and Alicia are all also awesome. Especially Diane and Kalinda. They're such HBIC, and I love them.


New York City

So like.

I'm originally from Manhattan, and I lived in Brooklyn for five years after college.

I now live in Austin, TX, which I also love.

I grew up there, and my heart still skips a beat whenever I cross the Manhattan Bridge on the Q train and see New York Harbor.

Make me homesick in the best way.


The Dresden Files

I think...I think I just want some serious Molly/Thomas smut.

That said, it could be just smut, or Molly working out her feelings for Harry through Thomas? Or just the fact that Thomas is an incubus and she needs to get laid?

Play with it, but oh my yes, I'd enjoy it.

Man, they could make some beautiful music together.

What do you think?

This was my first Yuletide, and it was rad! ^_^

I wrote No Mutual Friends, based on Summer of Love, a book I was so psyched someone else knew about, I had to jump on the Pinch Hit. My recipient was [livejournal.com profile] soundingsea, who seems pretty rad.

People wrote amazing stuff this year, and I'm so happy to have been a part of it!
