Dear Yuletide Writer

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! This is my first time doing Yuletide so I'm incredibly excited :)

If you'd like to stalk me during Yuletide or want to ask me a question/for clarification, I mainly hang around tumblr and AO3 these days. On my AO3 you can see the fics I've bookmarked if that helps give you ideas or in figuring out the things I like, or you can check out my fic rec masterlist (still in progress) that may be easier to maneuver.

All of this is totally optional, but I know a lot of the time it helps to have some direction to go in, so I've included some likes, dislikes, prompts, and squee for your inspiration. Include whatever you like or none if nothing I mention suits your fancy! Most of my fandoms are ok for Yuleporn or Crueltide if that's something you're interested in as well. Go wild!

Tbh, I'm really easy. I will read pretty much anything and my likes run the gammut from "totally normal" to "rare and kind of bizarre" to "probably squicks a lot of people." So whatever you can come up with, chances are good that I'll like it! I'm good with any ratings and most pairing combinations (I've mentioned specific main ones I'd especially like to see below). I'm caught up on everything (except for Ultimate Spider-Man), so no need to worry about spoilers. Christmas themed fic isn't something that really interests me, but if that's what you want to write, that's fine too.

fluff, AUs (coffee shop, college, high school, supernatural creatures, thieves/con artists, whatever ya got I'll probably love it), smut, pining, fake/pretend relationships, antagonistic relationships that turn into love, intelligent characters (intelligence kink, language kink, competency kink, etc), kid fic (them as kids or them having kids, mpreg is ok too!), characters suddenly realizing they've been in love all along, domesticity/family, A/B/O verse, communication by snark, BDSM (especially aftercare), codependent friendships, get togethers/first times, soulmates

major character death, 1st person POV, crossovers (fusions with Harry Potter or The Sentinel or Leverage or something like that are fine, I'm just not a huge fan of the meeting the other characters thing), cancer fic, zombies, body horror, abuse in main pairings, religious references (I'm sorry, I'm a bitter ex-Christian)

I'll try not to put particular emphasis on any of them as I'd love to get fic for whatever you feel most comfortable writing, so how much description or squeeing I do has no bearing on how much I want that fandom or character! For any of these, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like.

Almost Human - Dorian, John Kennex, Rudy Lom
For this fandom, I'm happy with character centric fic for any of these three, friendship/coworker relationship fic, or Doran/John fic. I don't ship Rudy with either or both of the others, but if you do, please feel free to try to convince me! This show ended way too soon, so if you'd like to focus more on exploring the world/city/differences in the future, I wouldn't say no to that either. With Dorian, I'm especially interested in his perception of the android/human dichotomy and how he navigates being sort of stuck in the middle and not really fitting quite right anywhere. I'm kind of fascinated by the idea of him being different even in comparison with the other MXs and DRNs, so I'd love to see some exploration of what makes him different (mentally/emotionally, physically) and how he deals with that. John is kind of the same way, in that he no longer really fits in with the police department or even other humans. I really enjoy his relationship with Dorian, whether romantic or platonic, because they began so antagonistically but are so similar. Fics showing how the others in the precinct react to their relationship are welcome as well. Rudy was possibly my favorite character in the show because he was so dorky and an obvious outsider. I love his weird friendship with John and Dorian and his awkward crush on Valerie. I'd really like to see more about how he gets on in his job or how he got there in the first place.

Prompts: Dorian and John having to go undercover as a couple and somehow feelings. Dorian never becomes a cop again and instead becomes a sex bot; John (on a prostitution bust or not) hooks up with him. Rudy gets to go undercover on another case and it's as awkward and disastrous as can be expected. Harry Potter AU where Dorian was created by magic and attends Hogwarts at the same time as John and/or Rudy.

Justice League & Justice League Unlimited - John Stewart, Shayera Hol
I just watched through these shows a few weeks ago and I was terribly disappointed by the lack of fic or any of the characters/ships I wanted to see. For Yuletide, I'm mostly interested in seeing more of John and Shayera's romantic relationship, whether it's before, during, or after John's relationship with Mari. Please don't fridge or villify Mari though! I'd be especially interested in how they got to the point of having Rex and them dealing with having a child. If you don't want to go the romantic route or don't want to include John, I'm totally open to seeing more of Shayera, especially when she was with Doctor Fate and dealing with her feelings of betraying both her people and her team.

Prompts: John and Shayera are sent into the future and this time Shayera meets Rex as well. Shayera was pregnant when the Thangarians came to Earth, but she never told John so she ends up having the baby while staying with Doctor Fate. Cop AU where John and Shayera are detectives.

Major Crimes - Rusty Beck, Sharon Raydor
My favorite part of this show is Rusty and Sharon's mother/son relationship. I'd love to see more of that relationship, maybe even branching out the rest of the family dynamics to include the rest of the squad and Sharon's biological family. My favorite thing about Sharon is that she cares so much but she's also pretty stoic, which leads to some interesting things with Rusty because he doesn't realize how much she cares about him.

Prompts: Rusty meets all of Sharon's family, maybe a family reunion or something. Sharon works for CPS and becomes Rusty's foster mom. Rusty and Sharon go shopping for a new place to live so that Rusty feels more like it's his home too.

The Losers - Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez, Jake Jensen
My preference for this one is shippy or at least close, codependent friendship. Jensen is hilarious and I love his snark and how he interacts with Cougar even when Cougar doesn't really say anything. Before, during, or after the movie would all be interesting to look at, but I think it would be especially interesting to see the beginning of their relationship (platonic or romantic or changing from one to the other) and how it develops. I like the rest of the team and would totally be ok with seeing how they interpret or react to Jensen and Cougar's relationship. I can also see a lot of pining in this relationship, from either side, and I think exploring their ability to communicate so well while also not communicating about emotions would be a really great way to go. But mostly I'm just really interested in how close and comfortable their relationship, whether it's platonic or romantic.

Prompts: One of them didn't go into the military but they still meet up somehow. Leverage AU with them doing whatever jobs. The two of them moving in with each other after the movie canon and not realizing they're already practically a couple until someone (maybe Jensen's sister or neice?) mentions it.

Better Off Ted - Lem Hewitt, Phil Myman
I would love Lem/Phil fic, but I'd also be really happy with friendship fic or character centric fic for either of them. Their relationship is fantastic because it's both kind of awkward but super comfortable. They also have the really codependent friendship that I love and it was one of my favorite things in the show. I'm really fascinated with how they got to be so close and their relationship with Veridian. It would be great to see something about how they feel about working there and working with each other and the rest of the main cast. Maybe something about them coming to work for Veridian or about weird projects they're working on would be great, especially if it's something that changes their relationship or makes them think about themselves, their friendship/relationships, or the company in a new way. I wouldn't be opposed to a little more exploration about Phil's wife and his relationship with her either.

Prompts: They're doing experiments that end up with one or both of them being turned into an animal or having animal features. Phil and Lem at college together. Harry Potter AU where they're the terrors of the staff because they're always doing experiments (maybe a little like the Weasley twins?).

Ultimate Spider-Man - Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, Peter Parker, Harry Osborn
This is the only fandom I'm not caught up on. I'm not sure how much I've watched, but I've for sure not seen the latest season. Either way, though, don't worry about spoilers, I don't mind them! For this fandom, I'm more interested in shippy fics than character centric fics, though I wouldn't say no to friendship or team dynamics. Harry is one of my Spider-verse favorite characters so for him I wouldn't mind more character centric fic. I'm a fan of Phil/Nick and Peter/Harry (and Peter/Sam, but I could only choose four characters, so feel free to do that!). I like the close friendships and somewhat antagonistic relationships are still strong.

Prompts: Phil and Nick at SHIELD before Phil becomes the principal at Peter's school. Peter and Harry growing up together, maybe even getting into a relationship early. The rest of the team figures out that Peter and Sam have crushes on each other before they do and try to get them together.

Thank you for writing for me, anonymous writer, and I hope you have fun with it! I look forward to seeing what you write :)

Ahh fantastic! :) I didn't even realize until I was typing up my letter how many Almost Human feels I have lol
