Dear Yuletide Writer

Dear Yuletide writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! This is my second time doing Yuletide and I am so so excited :)

If you'd like to stalk me during Yuletide or want to ask me a question/for clarification, I mainly hang around tumblr besides here. 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! Go wild! Seasonal stuff is fine if you want to write that, but I'm not necessarily looking for it. I'm good with any ratings and I'm caught up on everything, so no need to worry about spoilers. Fandoms ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and/or IF have also been marked below.

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! If it's something not listed under dislikes, then feel free to give it a try if you like, even if it's not one of my specific likes. Which I kind of go on about, sorry not sorry.

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, kid fic (them as kids or them having kids, mpreg), characters suddenly realizing they've been in love all along, domesticity/family, communication by snark, codependent friendships, get togethers, soulmates, adoptive parent-child relationships, queer/trans/genderqueer/etc. characters, magic, steampunk, road trips, tattoos/piercings, ghosts and monsters, intelligence kink, language kink, competency kink, breeding kink, A/B/O verse, BDSM (especially aftercare), rimming, tentacles, double penetration, sloppy seconds, dubcon/noncon, first times, dirty talk, xeno, chub love, wing kink, D/S, bestiality (sentient/partly human or not)

major character death, 1st and 2nd 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, abuse in main pairings, infidelity, animal death/torture, bashing female characters, zombies, scat, vomit, vore, amputation kink

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! Gen or ship fic is totally fine and I've listed my preferred ships below. For any of these, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like.

Batman Beyond - Dana Tan, Deidre Dennis, Delia Dennis, Maxine Gibson
This is really my favorite Batman series and I love the characters and just the whole feel of the series. I felt like Dana didn't get nearly enough time outside of just being Terry's girlfriend, so I'd love some more character exploration for her. Something where she gets involved with the Batfam would be great. Maybe her as Catwoman? Does she stay with Terry after high school? Delia and Deidre were super adorable and super interesting, especially once I saw for sure that Harley was their grandmother. I'd love something about them growing up and their family (Who is their grandfather? Who are their parents?) or how they got into the Jokerz, whether or not Harley encouraged them to, etc. Something with them already in the Jokerz would be great as well, especially if you went into what they do when they're not commiting crimes. Do all the Jokers hang out together? Do Delia and Deidre go to school? Maxine was my favorite and I'm so sad she didn't get to be more involved in all the crime fighting. My greatest wish was for her to be Batgirl or Robin, so I would be absolutely thrilled if you wrote something about that! Her life outside of Terry wasn't really explored either, so that would be interesting. What's her family like? What does she do after high school, does she go to college?

IF is fine for this.

Ships: none in particular, gen or shippy is fine. Dana/Terry is ok or anything else you'd like to do.

Prompts: The day Delia and Deidre joined the Jokerz. Max convinces Terry and Bruce to let her join them as Batgirl. Selina trains the new Catwoman, Dana.

Derkholm - Callette, Elda, Querida, Reville Townsend | Regin
I recently reread this series, one of my favorites from when I was younger. I still love it so much and I love that there are so many great characters. I'd love something that looks more deeply into the characters and their relationships, their motivations and feelings and that sort of thing. I feel like there was a lot that was glossed over or not even mentioned, especially events between books. Why was Elda pushing around a mount and how? Do Elda and her friends stay in touch after graduating and what do they do? More about them at the university would be great as well bc they are a great group. Tell me about the other continent and the war. Show me Callette as a renown artist and all the beautiful things she makes. Anything about Callette and/or Elda and any or all of their family would be great. What does Reville do after the Tours end? For that matter, how does everyone go about rebuilding their world? Give me more about Querida's past, her childhood, her marriage to Mara's father. Anything and everything you can think to explore, I'll love it!

IF is fine for this.

Ships: gen or shippy is fine. I like any of the canon ships plus Blade/Reville and Blade/Reville/Sukey.

Prompts: Reville and Sukey run into Blade a few years later and invite him into their relationship. The university after Wizard Policant reorganizes things. Elda and her friends on a day off.

Gotham - Harvey Bullock, Jim Gordon
To be honest, I've never been much of a Batman person, but I really love Harvey and Jim and they keep me watching the show. Harvey is really interesting to me because he's a bad cop but he's not really a bad cop all the time. And Jim just tries to hard when basically everyone in the city is against him. I love how Harvey is constantly frustrated with Jim, but always has his back anyway. They make a strangely good pair because they work really well together despite their many, many differences and the way they often butt heads. I'd rather not have any Nygma in the fic if you can help it bc he kind of creeps me out.

Yuleporn, Crueltide, and IF are fine for this.

Ships: prefer Harvey/Jim, but gen is fine.

Prompts: Jim becomes Gotham's first masked superhero. AU where Jim is a prostitute that Harvey hires. They have to go undercover as a couple and realize the tension between them is more than a little UST.

Jurassic Park - Claire Dearing, Kelly Malcolm, Lex Murphy, Robert Muldoon
This franchise has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. What's not to like about dinosaurs and science and theme parks and adventure? Claire was very interesting and I'd love to see more about her past. Show me how she came to work at the park. Does she even like dinosaurs? What were she and her sister like as children? And then off course after the movie. What does she do? What happens to the company? I liked Kelly a lot, especially how she really got to kick ass and show off her skills. It would be great to see more about her growing up with Ian as a father. Or after the movie, what happens? Show me how she tries to get back to normal or how she can't even imagine normal afterwards. Show me her as Olympic gymnast. An AU of her being involved with Jurassic World would be fabulous, whether she's for or against it. Does she ever meet Lex and Tim? Are there "we survived the dinosaurs" reunions? I really like Lex as a character and I'd love to see so much more of her! Show me what she does after Jurassic Park. Does she have nightmares of what she went through? Does she become a world class computer programmer or hacker? Does she join anti- or pro- genetically modified dinosaur organizations? Does she keep up with any of the other survivors? How did she feel about Jurassic World? An AU where she works at Jurassic World, maybe with her in charge of the park or the computer systems, would be fantastic. Muldoon is very fascinating to me as well. How does one go from a big game hunter to a warden at a dinosaur park? How does he feel about dinosaurs? What if he'd survived? Show me how he would survive on the island or try to return to normal life. Something less character driven that focuses on the Jurassic Park world would be fantastic as well. I'm thinking newspaper articles about the parks, scientific journals, new reports, anti/pro dinosaur/park rallies, government reports, that sort of thing. Also, as a caveat to my no crossovers, a crossover with Dinotopia would be the absolute best. I mean, seriously, someone who's been trapped on an island of dangerous dinos suddenly having to coexist with dinos? That's got to be a mind fuck and a half and I think that would be absolutely fascinating to explore.

Crueltide (preferably for Muldoon) and IF are fine for this.

Ships: none in particular, gen or shippy is fine. Any/OC, Kelly/Lex, Claire/Lex, or Muldoon/raptors would be interesting, or something else if you have a ship you like.

Prompts: Haunted by their memories, one of them goes back to the island when they're older. Leverage AU where Claire is the mastermind, Kelly is the thief, and/or Lex is the hacker. Muldoon survives the raptor attack, but is left alone on the island.

seaQuest - Lucas Wolenczak, Nathan Bridger, Tony Piccolo
I just recently watched this show and really got into it even though I didn't really think I would. Lucas is my favorite, though Tony is great as well. I love their interactions, how they get close despite a rocky start. I really like the idea of Lucas as pining after an oblivious Tony and everyone on the boat knowing about it, probably even Darwin. Lucas' father-son relationship with Bridger was one of my favorite things bc Lucas obviously needs a mentor and good father figure and Bridger is very good at that, and I'd love to see that explored some more. An AU where they actually are father and son or where Bridger adopts Lucas would be fantastic. Show me Lucas' family life and the new family he found on seaQuest. Show me Tony before he came to seaQuest, before he realized that he could be a good person and a good soldier. Exploring the world of seaQuest would be great as well. I loved the show, but I was a little disappointed there wasn't more science and/or sea creatures. More ocean exploration! Also, as a caveat to my no crossovers, a crossover with Dinotopia would be awesome for this. It would be great to see if Dinotopia is still hidden and a sub would probably be a great way to get there, either on purpose or accidentally. I'd love to see something exploring that.

Yuleporn and IF are fine for this.

Ships: gen or shippy is fine. My only ship is Lucas/Tony, so if you go shippy I'd prefer that. Please no romantic Lucas/Bridger or Tony/Bridger.

Prompts: Lucas goes to Captain Bridger for advice on how to ask Tony out. One or more of them are stranded somewhere and have to wait for rescue. Harry Potter AU where Captain Bridger is the headmaster and Lucas and Tony are students.

Secret Avengers - Marcus Johnson Fury, Maria Hill, MODOK, Phil Coulson
This is one of the only comics I've followed a full run of, and I just love it so much. It's a lot more fun than many of the other Avengers comics/movies/cartoons imo, and I really like the character interactions. Fury and Coulson's relationship is fantastic whether you interpret it as platonic or romantic. They both mean so much to each other and always have each other's back no matter what, and it's so grat to see a supportive relationship like that. I'd love to see something exploring Coulson's PTSD, maybe Fury helping him through it. MODOK's crush on Maria was just so cute in a bizarre kind of way. I love the way he pined over Maria and how the dynamics of their relationship (and the whole team) shifted, especially near the end of the run. I'd love something about how MODOK's feelings change his priorities or Maria trying to work out her own feelings alongside all her other responsibilities or them getting together and having to figure things out together. I know this ship is pretty cracky (even though it's basically canon??), so crack fic is fine, but I'd love something more serious as well. A one-sided relationship is fine, though I'm all in favor of it being reciprocated!

Yuleporn and IF are fine for this.

Ships: shippy is prefered but gen is fine. I like Maria/MODOK, Fury/Coulson, and Clint/Fury/Coulson. Clint/Fury and Clint/Coulson is fine, but I'd rather either as a lead up to OT3.

Prompts: The first time MODOK realized he was in love with Maria and trying to get help in wooing her. Maria informing someone (the team, her family, a friend, whatever) about her new relationship. Fury and Coulson inviting the rest of the team to their wedding.


Wow, seaQuest was my first official online fandom a thousand years ago so the idea of maybe having new stories for it is all kinds of awesome.
Whooo! I came into it way late, but I really hope there's a few other ppl still hanging around :)
psssst - I think you mean Harvey Bullock, rather than Harvey Dent.
Oh dang it, I totally did. Thank you!
