Yuletide letter

and I have written this
Dear Yulegoat,

First of all, thank you! Thank you so much! I'm thrilled that you're writing a story for me and I'm sure I will be delighted with anything that you produce.

Things I like: banter, pining, sweet gestures, quiet affection, noisy affection, rainy afternoons, tea drinking, strong friendship, sweet sex, safe/sane/consensual kinky sex, minor hurt/comfort, comfort all by itself, negotiating shared spaces in a relationship, communication, things left unsaid but still understood, lady-focused stories, queer stories, really any narrative that isn't focused on the problems of white dudes (despite my love for The Dark Is Rising).
Things I don't like: Resentment, major angst, gratuitous violence, cruelty, non-con, abuse of any kind.

Specific fandoms/details:

The Dark Is RisingCollapse )

Corner GasCollapse )

Dear Yuletide Author 2012

eight for you honey
Dear Yuletide Author:

First off, I am delighted that you are writing for me! Thank you! Thank you a thousand times! I'm sure I will be delighted with whatever you write for me, as I am extremely easy to please.

I request Will/Bran or Will&Bran every year, and I am never disappointed! I also love Jane and the rest of the Drews, along with Merriman, the Lady, and any of the Stantons whom you might care to throw in. I always love Bran half-remembering his heritage, and I love Will watching over the world. I love Jane and Barney coming into their own. I love anything that feels like lore. Really, I'll be happy whatever I get.


I would love to see Bitterblue rebuilding her kingdom after the events of Bitterblue. I would love to see Katsa and Po in their later years, settled comfortably into their uncommon life, still resisting convention and still visiting Bitterblue. I'd love to see Giddon and Bitterblue supporting each other (and perhaps romancing each other? Bonus points if it's Bitterblue's idea). I'd also like to hear more about Fire's trip to Bitterblue's kingdom and what happens next.


I love everyone and everything in Corner Gas, so I will be excited by anything! I am happy to read Wanda/pretty much anyone (not Oscar or Emma, though - they're pretty much only suited for each other - and I really only ship Brent/food). If you are up to wacky hijinks, I would love something going amiss! As it so often does. Maybe Lacey tries to supply pastries to the bar? Maybe Hank has a plan to get rich quick? Maybe Oscar and Emma are trying to fix up the house so they can move to warmer climes? It's all up to you, wonderful Yuletide author!


Frankly, I'm more familiar with the movie, but I also love the book. Anything about Molly Grue I will love. I greatly enjoy her subtle romance with Schmendrick, and I love her taking care of Amalthea (and vice versa). I just think everything about Molly is great, especially her cantankerous tenderness. I'd love to see what she and Schmendrick do in their later years.


First, not a squick, but I'm not really into hurt/comfort. Squicks include dubcon (in most situations), non-con in all situations, incest, bestiality, anything to do with urine or feces, racism/sexism, alpha/beta/omega, underage (under 18), and torture/excessive violence.

Generally, I love these kinds of stories: best buddies saving the world, best buddies falling in love, best buddies being domestic, unlikely partners teamed up to do something, sweet fluffy holiday stories, melancholy holiday stories, wacky hijinks, and introspection. I enjoy AUs, genderbending, futurefics, past fics, and pretty much everything in between. I prefer wit to whining, whimsy to serious business, and light-heartedness to angst, unless the angst is well-justified. I mean, it's the season of joy, after all.

I'm happy to read anything from G to NC-17 (if you've checked my works, you know I write a lot of porn), but whatever you're comfortable with will be fine, author.


If you have any questions about what things I like, I live with coffeesuperhero and I'm sure she'd be glad to fish for details on your behalf!

Shining, Shimmering, Splendid
Author: leiascully
Summary: Clara has a date to the Modern Marvels of Tomorrow Exhibit. Why shouldn't the Doctor?
Timeline: early in Captain America, Series 7 DW
Pairing: River/Doctor, Clara/Bucky Barnes
Rating: T for innuendo
Wordcount: 1459
Concrit: Welcome
A/N: Obviously I started writing this before Series 7 started to air and I didn't really want to change it in case we get Moffatted again, but I also didn't want to wait until we found out more about the new Companion. Written because Jenna-Louise Coleman is actually Bucky's date to the Modern Marvels exhibit in Captain America, and also because I had a "wonder" square on my Cotton Candy Bingo card, so why not? Title from "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin.
