Hello, thank you for writing for me, and I hope you have lots of fun.

Likes - Keep them in character and give them a happy or hopeful ending and I'm good. Any rating.

Dislikes - Rape. Betrayal. I don't mind angst, as long as there's a happy ending.

I've added a bit about what I like in each fandom after my request, if that helps :)

EDIT: You've probably been and gone, but in case you revisit, I've been reminded that some people enjoy [completely optional!!] prompts for specific sorts of fics, so I will admit I'm a sucker for all the tropes: sex pollen, bodyswap, undercover as married etc. And I do love traditional gender roles being subverted

Lucifer (Chloe/Lucifer)

Something that explores their relationship as it is currently evolving on the show, alternatively if you would like to write a canon divergent fic exploring a different first kiss/first time that's awesome. Or a Big Reveal where Lucifer finally gets around to coming clean with Chloe (if the show hasn't already done so by then)

I adore Lucifer, Chloe, Maze, Trixie, Ella and Doctor Linda. I quite like Dan, but he just keeps on making bad choices and then covering them up. Gah. Not a fan of Lucifer's mum, happy for her not to be a main focus in the fic, but if your story idea requires her, go for it. Mostly I love how bemused both Lucifer and Chloe are with each other. They're adorable.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (Phryne/Jack)

Something that explores their relationship after their dramatic farewell scene, alternatively if you would like to write a canon divergent fic exploring a different first kiss/first time that's awesome.

I love them both and their found family. I absolutely adore how bemused Jack is by Phryne and how he doesn't try to change her or think less of her for what was for the time, her 'fast' lifestyle. Also, their UST LEAPS off the screen, so.

Forever (Henry/Jo)

The finale ended with Henry about to explain to Jo. You could write that, or you could have it interrupted to be taken up more dramatically later, or just go canon divergent if you have a different plot reveal you've been dying to write.

Re relationship - happy for Henry to attempt to woo Jo, or even a found family fic with Abe.

Obviously, Henry is lovely. Abe is lovely. Jo is awesome. I am sad that the show didn't get renewed and I figure they'd probably been intending to spin the reveal out another season or so and probably ended it with Henry about to tell Jo the truth so there'd be at least some kind of closure. Hence, I am happy with however you want to play with that ending, if you have feelings about it *G*. but also happy for you to ignore the whole reveal thing if you have another idea, absolutely.

If you haven't already watched Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, I highly, highly recommend this lovely show. I suggest reading this a lovely, detailed pimp post someone else prepared earlier because I am lazy no point reinventing the wheel, right *cough*

The characters are adorable and the chemistry between Jack and Phryne lights up the screen.

a bit of MFMM yuletide ramble )

My absolute highlight for Yuletide (after my own gifts of course) was this fic set after the series finale -

A Series of Optical Illusions
Phryne/Jack, Case Fic, M. 20k.

This is bait, but the best bait is the truth; there is no lie in Jack's arm around her waist, in his fingers tangled through hers.
Miss Phryne Fisher sets a trap, throws a party, and reconciles her differences.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for volunteering to write my little fandom, I already love you :)

I have been doing Yuletide from nearly the beginning and absolutely none of the excitement has worn off for me. I LOVE YULETIDE, WHEEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a note - yes, I recycle most of my Yuletide letter, except for the new fandoms, the ones I don't hopefully request year after year, but that's because I've spent years getting my letter how I like it.

Also, if detailed letters stress you out and/or you already know what you want to write, feel free to not even read below. Truly :)

General notes and likes/dislikes )

On recurring vs new fandom requests )

sarren: yuletide procrastination (yuletide)
For the first time in too many years I had plenty of time to write and read Yuletide. I wrote 22k of gen and het fic, which I'm pretty sure more than doubles my entire output in both those things.

My fics )

I also have had much more time to read Yuletide this year as I am still on holiday instead of back at work, so when I ran out of fandoms I wanted to read I sorted by kudos and read a heap of fics that had hardrly any kudos. Admittedly I skimmed some, but I also found a few super interesting ones.
sarren: (rudy driving curtis)
Nearly every fic I've read this year has been well written, interesting, often lyrical, great plots where applicable, and many are quite lengthy. I do think Yuletide has become a thing where most people really stretch themselves and I read these and think of all those ignorant comments and articles that claim that fanfic is pathetic and I feel sorry for those people.

Lots of recs in Slash, Other, Het and Gen )

Productive weekend, feeling goooood. Lots of exercise, weeding, cleaning up my bedroom, interspersed with important telly watching.

I am very happy with my Yuletide assignment, recipient seems easy to please - there was no letter complete with essay detailing their likes/dislikes (I am not criticising those types of letters, the last two years I had those and I enjoy the challenge of including as many things as I can cram in *g*)

I offered Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries again this year but again didn’t match on it – which is fair enough, I do prefer matching on rarer fandoms, to me that’s the real point of Yuletide, however there are lots of lovely prompts for MFMM in people’s open letters and I am thinking seriously of writing a treat in the fandom. With that thought in mind I figured I’d rewatch some eps (when Dfly is doing school prep we put stuff on that she’s either seen or isn’t bothered about giving all her attention to)

I had forgotten how charming this show is!!!

The characters are adorable and the chemistry between Jack and Phryne lights up the screen.

Here is a pimp post someone else prepared earlier which pretty much sums up most of the things I love about the show.
