Dear Yuletide Writer

Dear Yuletide writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me!

If you'd like to stalk me during the exchange, 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. And always feel free to ask if you have questions or want me to expand on anything!

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! I'm good with any ratings and I'm caught up on everything, so no need to worry about spoilers. I'm not particularly interested in seasonal fills, but they're totally fine if you'd like to go that way :) Fandoms ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and/or IF have been marked below.

Likes and Dislikes
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...

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 any of them! I noted my preferred ships, but I am perfectly happy with gen, about one or any combo of the characters, or ship fic. Or if you have another ship for any of the characters that isn't in my DNWs, please try and convince me! For any of these fandoms, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like :)

Addams Family
Gomez Addams, Morticia Addams, Wednesday Addams

I love the aesthetic of this show and how odd yet loving their family is. Gomez and Morticia are basically the perfect couple, and amazing parents as well. I love how much they love each other and how they're never afraid to show it in the most beautiful and morbid ways. I'd really be interested in seeing about them meeting, or even before that, or maybe the beginnings of heir relationship. Wednesday is just all around fantastic. Her deadpan attitude is so much fun, especially in situations where anyone else would be crying or screaming. I'd love to see her interacting with her sibling(s if you wanna include stuff from the movies) or with people from school. Future fic would be great, like something about her in college or what she does after school. For any/all of these characters, I really do love the whole family, so I definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of everyone and anyone interacting with literally anyone else :) Ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and IF.

Gomez/Morticia, Joel/Wednesday

Gomez and Morticia on date night. Wednesday makes her first (real, live) friend and doesn't really know what to do. Gomez and Morticia take Wednesday on a tour of colleges. Gomez and Morticia experiment with a new kink.

Fantastic Four (2005-2007)
Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm

My favorite part of these movies is the banter between Ben and Johnny. That antagonism while still really caring for and supporting each other is so great to me and I would love to see more. They're both pretty hotheaded and stubborn in different ways, so they kind of end up balancing each other in important ways. For ship fic, it would be especially interesting to see how Sue and/or Reed finds out about or feels about their relationship bc on the surface it probably looks pretty unromantic. I'm also always fascinated by how they work out sex with Ben being a rock and Johnny occasionally catching on fire, so that would be cool to explore as well. Ok for Yuleporn and IF.

Alicia/Ben, Ben/Johnny, Alicia/Ben/Johnny

Reid Richards

Johnny discovers that he's not as straight as he thought and Ben helps him figure things out. Sue finds out who her brother is seeing. Ben realizes he's in love with Johnny in the middle of a mission. Johnny has pined over Ben for so long he doesn't get it at first when Ben and Alicia try to get him into bed with them.

Lethal Weapon
Martin Riggs, Roger Murtaugh, Trish Murtaugh

I honestly didn't expect to like this show, and at first I didn't. I'm still not a fan of fridging Martin's wife in the first minute and then dwelling continually on it, so I'd appreciate as little of that as possible. But I really do like the dynamic between Martin and Roger. I feel like they both kind of encourage each other to go into crazy situations, but they're also really good for each other at times. I'd love to see more of that, how they make each other worse and better at the same time. Roger and Trish's relationship is a big part of why I like the show. They're just such a great, supportive and loving couple and I really enjoy seeing them interacting. I like that Trish gets Martin to take care of Roger and gets Roger to help Martin act like a normal person. Ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and IF.

Martin/Roger, Martin/Roger/Trish, Roger/Trish

Martin and Roger have to go undercover as a couple and things get a little too real. Trish asks Roger about hall passes and he thinks she wants to sleep with Martin; it turns out she really wants him to. Trish and Roger go on a date and Martin volunteers to babysit. Roger invites Martin to a family outing and it kind of becomes a thing.

The Mummy
Ardeth Bay, Jonathan Carnahan

The movies, man. They pretty ridiculous, but they're also just so much fun! Ardeth is such an interesting character in this series, both on his own and in relation to his connection to everyone else. Most of what we see of him is in passing or implied, so it would be really interesting to see that more in depth. Jonathan is a great character bc he's really not very brave or strong or anything like that, but he loves his family and despite his flaws, he really does try his best. I'd love to see more about his thoughts and how he sees his place with everyone else since he's kind of the outlier with the O'Connells. Ardeth and Jonathan don't get a lot of interaction, but it would be great to see more of the two of them, whether platonically or romantically. They're such wildly different personalities and come from such wildly different cultures and I think there's really a lot to explore there. Ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and IF.


Ardeth introduces Jonathan to his family. Jonathan spends some family time with the O'Connells. A typical non-mummy day for Ardeth. Jonathan gets so down on his luck that he ends up having to prostitute himself; Ardeth picks him up. Modern AU where college drop-out!Jonathan falls for model!Ardeth.

Eliot, Evelyn Sanders, Ginny Baker, Mike Lawson

I'm really glad this show exists, and I've really been enjoying it so far. I'm a big baseball fan, so it's a lot of fun to see parts of the games and what all is going on behind the scenes. Eliot is honestly so amusing and I wish there more than the tiny bits of him we get. I think he could be a really good friend to Ginny. I'm also just very intrigued with his job. I would so love to see more of the social media stuff he does than just videos, like the twitter and snapchat and all that shit, plus everything else since he at least makes her smoothies for workouts. We don't get to see a lot of Evelyn, but she seems to be a really exciting character. I love her enthusiasm and her relationship with her husband and the way she supports and encourages Ginny. I'd really like to see more of all of that. Ginny is just a great character and I love her strength and perserverance and dedication to her goals and morals. I'd love to see more of her relationship with her brother or her friendship with Evelyn and Blip. She seems so isolated so much of the time that I really just want to see her interacting with people outside of baseball politics! Mike might actually be my favorite character. He's kind of an asshole, but I really think he has a good heart and he really does care about the people on his team. I like that he's become a mentor and friend for Ginny and was starting to support her even before most of the rest of the team was. Ok for Yuleporn and IF.

Blip/Evelyn, Ginny/Mike

Amelia/Mike, Blip/Ginny

Evelyn and Ginny have a girls night out. Mike realizes he's fallen for Ginny but knows she doesn't want to break her not dating players rule. Eliot runs a Ginny appreciation tumblr full of adorable edits of her standing on the pitch, surrounded by stars and hearts. The first time Ginny and Evelyn met.

Stranger Things
Benny Hammond, Joyce Byers, Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington

I really love the ambiance of this show and so many of the characters. Benny was so sweet and it really broke my heart that he died. Fix it fic would be amazing. I really love how kind he was with Eleven, and I'd love to see an AU where he adopts her. Joyce is a really fantastic character and a really great mom. She was so strong and supportive of her children and it was so sad how it seemed like she was always getting the wrong end of the stick in life. She just deserves to have some happiness (maybe with Hopper?) once things calm down, though she's also just so great in horrific situations. I wasn't very interested in Nancy at first, but she really grew on me as the season went on. I really enjoyed her friendship with Barb and how she would do anything she could, even going up against a monster, to try to save her. Her relationships with Jonathan and Steve were really interesting and I'd love to see any combination of that explored some more after things settle down. Steve was probably actually my favorite character and I was so so happy that he got a chance to really grow as a character and figure out kind of what/who he did and didn't want in his life. I'd really really like to see more about his home life and if he had any reservations about how his friends acted before he got together with Nancy. I loved the dynamic between Steve, Nancy, and Jonathan and it would be a lot of fun to explore what happens with that after the end of the season. Ok for Yuleporn, Crueltide, and IF.

Hopper/Joyce, Jonathan/Nancy, Jonathan/Nancy/Steve, Jonathan/Steve, Nancy/Steve

Eleven/Mike, Dustin/Nancy

Nancy heads off to college, but the strange events don't stay at home. Steve's parents find out about his boyfriend and suddenly his unhappy home life is even more unhappy. Joyce can't stay in the house after everything that happened; even with Jonathan and WIll's support, it turns out to be very difficult to move on her limited limited income. Steve invites Nancy and Jonathan for a weekend alone at a lake house. Benny wakes up in the hospital and all he remembers is that there was a little girl he needed to protect.



For your Fantastic Four request, could you elaborate on your feelings on Reed? Are you okay with people including Reed in the far background, as long as he doesn't receive much attention. Ie, included when the team is on a mission, but not really featured much, or having one or two scenes with Ben in a high school AU? Or maybe there would be scene where he tried science stuff to help Ben? Obviously, Reed wouldn't be the center of any fic, but only appear every once in a while in connection with Ben or one of the Storms.
Sure. I mostly find him very annoying, so I'd rather not see him much. In the background or occasional small appearances are fine! He's part of the team and married to Sue, so I wouldn't expect him to totally disappear haha


What year do you think the Addams' met? In the early 1970s?
If the "current time" of the show is when it was airing, I think they probably met mmm... around like 1944 or so? If the "current time" is from when the movies aired, then probably early 1970s, yeah. Basically like 15-20 years before "current time" if that makes sense. Honestly though, I don't remember that there was a lot to like date things or create important markers, so it could be any time lol
