I got the fic of my dreams for Yuletide this year, about my favourite character in the Biggles book fandom. Anyone who likes the Biggles stories should read it, but I don't think you need to be familiar with the fandom to appreciate it for the wonderful piece of writing that it is,

Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions (1119 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Biggles series - WE Johns
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Bertie Lissie, James "Biggles" Bigglesworth
Summary:

Bertie rarely felt as if he belonged anywhere.

Bookmarker's Notes:

A perfect gem of a story - back story/character study of Bertie Lissie, my favourite character in the fandom. I think it stands up well even if you're not familiar with canon, so everyone should read it! :)

Wishlist 2015, Prompt Post

What is the Wishlist?
The Wishlist is a multi-fandom Christmas fanfiction fest. It is something that started very small and simple five years ago. The premise was simply to write twenty-four ficlets in response to twenty-four prompts, posted between 1 Dec and 24 Dec. Fandom gifts, if you will. Since then it's grown and changed a bit.

The community and the rules in detail can be found here.

I have signed up to be a writer and if you want to give me a prompt, please leave a comment on this entry.

Rules
- I accept the first 6/12/24 prompts I am given, regardless of who you are or if I know you (my final target depends on how many prompts I get! :D )

- You give me characters/pairing, a fandom and a prompt.

- If I don't know the fandom you're requesting, or don't currently have access to the canon, your prompt doesn't count. The fandoms I have written in so far are:
a Top Gear (UK) RPF
b MASH (TV)
c Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
d A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett

though I'm looking to broaden my horizons, so if anything in my interests takes your fancy, feel free to prompt for it, and if I have the canon I'll give it a go!

- If your prompt hits any of my squicks or triggers, I will disregard it (the biggies are character death, pregnancy - male or female - and cruelty to/death of animals. Oh, and I only write happy endings!).

- Your prompts should somewhat match what I usually write (AO3 name is rosied). It can be a quote, an idea, a specific situation, but the more you give me, the more I have to work with. Throwing Character X/Character Y, whatever at me is going to get you whatever.

- If you don't have an lj account, leave an anonymous comment, but make sure to sign it with a name - I answer the prompts in the order I like best and post them here, at the AO3 and/or in the [profile] wishlist_fic community, one a day, starting 1 Dec 2011.

Again, I need fandom, characters or pairings, prompt, and your name

Dear Author

 

First of all, thank you so much for being my writer! This is my first time with this fest, and I'm a bit nervous about it. I'll try not to screw anything up, but if I do, please let me know :) I'm going to ramble on a bit about the general stuff in this letter; the specifics are in my signup.

 

Likes

 

I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

 

I like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!). I like to see the progression of a friendship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when they don't like each other all that much at first and their friendship is somewhat unexpected. I really enjoy people in relationships that grow from friendship, particularly if that's unexpected too. How do they deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

 

I'm particularly partial to humour, wit, sarcasm and silliness in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour that tends towards the sarcastic, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. Awkward conversations that play out terribly, banter, bickering, friendly arguments, cutting commentary, subtle (or not so subtle) mockery, politeness or the pretense of it as veneer or weapon against the unaware are great. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, seemingly unrequited longing, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.


 

I love epistolary fic - not necessarily just in the form of actual letters; in a modern or future setting voicemail, emails, texts, blog posts, message board transcripts, viewscreens, Facebook or Twitter posts will work, in any combination.

 

I enjoy plot-driven stories and character-driven stories that focus on relationships. Plot that shows off character is perfect - the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years. I love romance, slow-burn UST to RST, first-time stories, porn or fade-to-black. Back story, missing scene fic, established relationships, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy.


Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested characters to be the focus of the story.

 

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one - the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

 

Swearing, crudity etc is not a problem, and in fact where it is a thing in canon I’d prefer it to be included (Top Gear, I'm looking at you!).

 

 

Dislikes

 

One of my biggest squicks to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female), so even if a relationship might be expected to make a big deal out of it, please don't go there.

 

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please. Things I don't like include deathfic (excluding those canons involving canon conflict ie Biggles & Co., though I would prefer OC death rather than canon character death), noncon, torture, abuse, infidelity or any other type of partner betrayal, character bashing, A/B/O and certain kinks (see porn section for details).

References to past hurts are fine, but please don't make that the focus of the fic

 


Not exactly dislikes, but...

 

I'm not really familiar with daemons, so if you want to go with these you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :)


Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.

 

 

Porn:


I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. I'm mostly a slash bunny, but will happily read het and femslash, in fandoms where they fit. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you don't want to, that's fine too. In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and virgins, and all that comes with that - visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

 

Kinkier stuff is more than ok,too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, voyeurism, exhibitionism, cross-dressing and erotic spanking. I can also go for mild BDSM (not lifestyle; easily slipping into and out of it is fun, particularly with a humourous slant), light bondage/restraints, public sex/sex where there is a risk of being caught, figging, wax play and toys.

 

I don't care for scat, watersports, blood (in a sex context; blood in the course of a day's work, eg Biggles, is ok), lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality.

 

 

 

Specifics:

 

Biggles Series - W. E. Johns

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

For these relationships, I'm interested in the dynamics between the characters involved.

 

Biggles is the unquestioned leader as far as outside ventures are concerned; I wonder whether this continues to be the case in private, or if he might (if only occasionally) let himself be taken in charge/cared for, and if so, whether he does so naturally or whether he needs to be coaxed into it (consensually).

 

As for the others:

 

Algy has been with Biggles the longest; he's Biggles' cousin and was posted to Biggles' squadron during WW1. Their relationship was pretty rocky at first, since Biggles resented Algy's mother asking him to look after Algy, and Algy had a bit of a case of hero-worship. However, they bonded pretty quickly, and Algy has been Biggles' second-in-command ever since. Would this carry on into their private life, or would Algy want to take charge for a change?

 

Von Stalhein has known Biggles and Algy for almost as long as they've known each other, but in an adversarial role (also with Bertie after he joined up with Biggles and Co). Even though there's a truce after they rescue him from Sakhalin, the relationship is uneasy. It would be interesting to see how any relationship featuring him would come about.

 

Bertie only joined the gang in WW2, but I think the confidence and acceptance of self that I see in him would mean he would find no difficulty in joining in with more intimate things. I think he could well switch roles as necessary in a relationship.

 

I'd welcome other characters in 'guest spots', particularly Ginger and Air Commodore Raymond, but not involved in any relationship. They could make interesting POV characters.

 

 

American Idol RPF

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

I just love the interactions between Ryan and the two pairs of judges. Sorry, I can't be more specific than this here! (though Ryan's tendency to open his mouth and put his foot in it, and Simon's sarcasm are always fun).

 

Guest characters (not part of relationships) welcome.

 

 

Britain's Got Talent RPF

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

Another one that I can't really provide any suggestions for; I just love the ways these characters interact with each other. You rarely see Ant'n'Dec together with Stephen Mulhern on camera, so finding out more about that would be fun.

 

Guest characters (not part of relationships) welcome.

 

 

Top Gear (UK) RPF

Fanfiction Fanvids Meta Any Relationship

 

I adore fiction about these guys in any combination. I'd love lots of banter, trading of insults, arguments, road trips, crazy challenges, shenanigans and things generally 'not going well'.

 

How the 'outside' characters get involved/fit into relationships with 2 or 3 of the TG guys would be fascinating.

If you're going to use the Stig, I really like the Stig-as-an-alien trope.

 

Guest characters (not part of relationships) welcome.

 

I'd also love meta or a fanvid for these guys (in view of the show's demise ::sob:: I'd really like to see a fanvid using Green Day's 'Good Riddance [Time Of Your Life']).

 

 

The Voice (US) RPF

Carson Daly/Adam Levine/Blake Shelton Adam Levine/Blake Shelton/Carson Daly/Usher Adam Levine/Blake Shelton/Carson Daly/Pharrell Williams Fanfiction

 

I just want to see Carson Daly get some love! He's a real sweetheart to the contestants, and very supportive to them and their families during the blind auditions. He obviously gets a kick out of the judges' antics, and it would be great to have him included in backstage shenanigans!

 

I adore Blake and Adam's bromance, and this could be a good starting point from which to involve the other character(s).

 

Again, un-nominated characters are welcome in guest roles.

 

 

The Moody Blues (Band)

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

Again, don't really have any details, except in the case of Justin Hayward/John Lodge/Gordon Marshall/Paul Bliss. I've always seen these guys as two pairs of bffs, with Justin/John and Gordy/Paul in relationships. I saw Gordy/Paul as kind of a younger version of Justin/John, to the extent that I usually refer to these two as the Baby Jays. A story exploring this idea, as the two pairs gradually come together, would make me squee with joy! :)

 

 

Hogan's Heroes

Robert Hogan/Wilhelm Klink/Peter Newkirk Robert Hogan/Peter Newkirk/James Kinchloe Peter Newkirk/James Kinchloe/Louis LeBeau Fanfiction

 

The only optional detail I have for this one is that I'd rather like Colonel Klink be aware of what Hogan and his men are up to, either with or without Hogan realizing this.

 

A guest appearance by Sergeant Schulz would be to-die-for!

 

 

MASH (TV)

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

I just love all these guys to death! Just tell me anything about any of them! You don't need to restrict yourself to the nominated relationships either - if you want to write the whole camp as one big happy (dysfunctional) poly family, I'd be delighted!

 

 

The Monkees (TV)

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

I love the TV show Monkees! (I love them irl too, but I want a story in the TV show setting.) Make it a romp, have them taking on villains, whether knowingly or by accident, supporting each other with any problems they might have, hanging out together at the beach house, taking a drive in the Monkeemobile, playing a gig, generally just being friends and having fun.

 

Any combination would be wonderful, but the four of them together is the relationship of my heart - just give me a big cuddly puppy pile of love and friendship!

 

Also, if you could write Peter as something along the lines of shy, really absent-minded and/or hopelessly innocent/naive rather than as thick as two short planks, I will love you forever!

 

 

UFO | Gerry Anderson's UFO

Fanfiction Any Relationship

 

Just give these poor guys some love and happiness! That's all I have to say about this fandom ::cuddles them all::

Dear Yuletide Writer

First of all, thank you so much for being my writer! I'm going to ramble on a bit generally (probably a lot, actually), then try and write something about why I like these fandoms, and give some ideas I've had about possible stories, but feel free to ignore any or all of it if it's not helpful.

The general stuff...

I really enjoy people in relationships that grow from friendship, particularly if that's unexpected too. With both platonic or romantic partners: how do they deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

I'm particularly partial to humour, wit, sarcasm and silliness in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour that tends towards the sarcastic, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. Awkward conversations that play out terribly, banter, bickering, friendly arguments, cutting commentary, subtle (or not so subtle) mockery, politeness or the pretense of it as veneer or weapon against the unaware are totally my bag.

I love forced bed sharing, arranged or accidental marriages, and pretend boyfriends.

Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested character(s) to be the focus of the story.

I'm a total slash bunny, and will read any rating from G to NC-17, but if you don't want to go there, gen is fine too. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you'd rather not, that's ok too. Gen, ships (including poly - actually preferred in the case of the Monkees), and in betweens are all excellent. I love romance, slow-burn UST to RST, first-time stories (I'm a total sucker for those), porn (if appropriate), but I also like friendship stories.

If you're writing Biggles, kinkier stuff is ok, too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, poly, voyeurism, exhibitionism, cross-dressing, figging and erotic spanking.

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one – the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

Dislikes

One of my biggest squicks to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female), so even if a canon might be expected to make a big deal out of it, please don't go there. Cruelty to/death of animals triggers the hell out of me, to the point that I can't read stories that mention it.

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please, and don't make it the focus of the story.
Things I don't like include deathfic, noncon, torture, abuse, infidelity or any other type of partner betrayal, character bashing, kidfic, embarrassment/humiliation and certain kinks (I don't care for scat, watersports, blood, lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality).

Not exactly dislikes, but...

I'm not really familiar with daemons, so if you want to go with this you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :)

Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.


Now the specific stuff (these requests are in no particular preference order, BTW):

Request 1: Biggles
Bertie Liss
ie

Bertie is my favourite character in this fandom, so I'd like to know more about him - his life before he joined 666 Squadron, why it was that Biggles, Algy and Ginger accepted him into their inner circle, why he feels it necessary to play the 'silly ass' - what makes him tick in general. Probably my favorite book of the series is 'Biggles Fails To Return', which is the first one in which Bertie takes a major role, and mentions a bit about his background. 

My head-canon has him being a similar age to Biggles and Algy; if you like this idea, it would be interesting to know what he got up to in WW1, and whether Biggles and Algy (or von Stalhein) were aware of him.

I'd love to read about him being in a relationship with Biggles or von Stalhein (or both - the dynamics of this would be fascinating), but this is very optional! :)

(Obviously the rest of the nominated characters are welcome, plus guest characters not nominated - Ginger, Col. Raymond, Wilks, other members of 266 and 666 Squadrons, for example, but please make Bertie the focus of the story)


Request 2: The Monkees (TV)
Davy Jones
Micky Dolenz
Mike Nesmith
Peter Tork


I love the TV show Monkees! (I love them irl too, but I want a story in the TV show setting.) Make it a romp, have them taking on villains, whether knowingly or by accident, supporting each other with any problems they might have, hanging out together at the beach house, taking a drive in the Monkeemobile, playing a gig, generally just being friends and having fun. Slashing any or (especially) all of them would be wonderful, but a friendship fic would be welcomed too – just give me a big cuddly puppy pile of love and/or friendship!

Also, if you could write Peter as something along the lines of shy and hopelessly innocent/naive rather than as thick as two short planks, I will love you forever!


Request 3: Your Wildest Dreams/I Know You're Out There Somewhere - Moody Blues (Music Video)
John Lodge
Justin Hayward


These two videos:

youtu.be/kmmPFrkuPq0
 - Your Wildest Dreams
youtu.be/cjImFYf2Vzc - I Know You're Out There Somewhere

are obviously the beginning and end of a story that needs to be told.

A slashy take on it would be wonderful (Young John looks so hostile - jealous? - about Young Justin's relationship with the OFC in the first video, and Justin ends up running into John's arms in the second one), but feel free to tell a friendship story if you're not comfortable with that idea. Either way, I'd rather you didn't dwell too much on the Justin/OFC side of things, because I'm only really interested in the relationship between the Jays in this fandom.

Also, have a bonus video:

youtu.be/rIbt4ZeyN04 - Running Out Of Love

because Justin and John look bloody gorgeous in it, and there's a few hysterically funny moments!


Request 4: YouTube Musician RPF
Casey Breves
Sam Tsui


I hadn't come across these two before seeing the nomination, but after watching one of their joint videos on YouTube (Time After Time - youtu.be/cAfDnCQLJCY ), I was hooked! They both have amazing voices, and the fact that they're pretty cute too is an added bonus :) I'd be interested in any story you want to tell about these two, from a slashy or a friendship point of view - how did they meet, why did they decide to start collaborating? Also, watching their solo videos, Casey seems to take a more classical approach to his singing (La Vie en Rose - youtu.be/444uuuMS0kY ), whereas Sam has a more modern style (Uptown Funk/Lips Are Movin' - youtu.be/xl8BCOuWh9c ), so how did they go about meshing their different kinds of musicianship?


Well, I hope you found at least some of my rambling helpful! :) Thank you again, Yuletide Writer. I hope you'll enjoy writing my fic as much as I know I’ll enjoy reading it, and I hope you get a wonderful fic yourself! Best of luck with everything and Happy Yuletide!

Dear Author – Rare Pairs

Truth in advertising – I've copied a lot of this section from my Yuletide 2014 letter!

The general stuff...

Likes

I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

I like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!). I like to see the progression of a friendship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when they don't like each other all that much at first and their friendship is somewhat unexpected. I really enjoy people in relationships that grow from friendship, particularly if that's unexpected too. How do established partners deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

I'm particularly partial to humour, wit, sarcasm and silliness in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour that tends towards the sarcastic, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. Awkward conversations that play out terribly, tonally incongruous humor, banter, bickering, friendly arguments, cutting commentary, subtle (or not so subtle) mockery, politeness or the pretense of it as veneer or weapon against the unaware are totally my bag. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, seemingly unrequited longing, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.

I love epistolary fic – not necessarily just in the form of actual letters; in a modern setting voicemail, emails, texts, blog posts, message board transcripts, Facebook or Twitter posts will work, in any combination. Diaries are good too.

I love women being terrific, good at what they do, and strong in a way that makes sense to them in the society in which they live, whether that’s physically, mentally or emotionally.

I enjoy plot-driven stories and character-driven stories that focus on relationships. Plots that show off character are perfect – the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years.

Any rating is fine with me. I love romance, slow-burn UST to RST, first-time stories, porn - see note at the end of the general section about porn.

Back story, missing scene fic, established relationships, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy. I love forced bed sharing, arranged or accidental marriages, and 'pretend' boyfriends.

Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested characters to be the focus of the story.

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted.

Not exactly dislikes, but...

I'm not really familiar with daemons, or the A/B/O set-up, so if you want to go with these you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :) Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.

Porn:

As I said above, I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you don't want to, that's fine too.

In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and virgins, and vanilla, and all that comes with that – visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

Kinkier stuff is more than ok, too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, poly, voyeurism, exhibitionism, cross-dressing and erotic spanking.

Squicks are scat, watersports, blood (in a sex context; blood in the course of a day's work is ok), humiliation, lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality.

 

Now the specific stuff (these requests are in no particular preference order, BTW):-

 

Request 1: Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

Charles Bingley/Fitzwilliam Darcy
Fitzwilliam Darcy/Mr Bennett

Charles Bingley/Mr Bennett

(Fanfiction)

In the case of the pairings with Mr Bennet, I just want to know how it came about; they're fascinating pairings, but I can't imagine how either one of them might start. I can see the relationship between Mr Bennett and Charles being a mentor/mentee relationships, but I wonder what the dynamics between Mr Bennett and Darcy would be like – possibly he might do what Elizabeth would do for Darcy in canon, eg teaching him how to take teasing (If you want to have the three of them together, that would be wonderful too).

 

Request 2: Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen

Colonel Brandon/Elinor Dashwood

(Fanfiction)

I think Elinor and Colonel Brandon would do very well together, to my mind better than Elinor and Edward (especially book-Edward). They become very good friends in canon, and I'd like to read about how this might develop into romantic love.

 

Request 3: MASH (TV)

Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce/Charles Emerson Winchester III
Sidney Freedman/Father Francis Mulcahy
Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce/Charles Emerson Winchester III/B.J. Hunnicutt

(Fanfiction)

Sidney/Mulcahy is the pairing that intrigues me the most here. The two of them are both involved in counseling/comforting others, albeit in different ways, but who can they turn to for support when they're the ones who need the counsel/comfort? I'd like to see the two of them turn to each other, with the relationship between them develop from professional, to friendship to lovers.

For the pairing/threesome involving Charles, it would be interesting to see how they move from adversaries to lovers.

 

Request 4: Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling

Dudley Dursley/Harry Potter

(Fanfiction)

I really enjoy reading “Dudley Redeemed”-type fics, so I'd love anything along these lines.

 

Request 5: Night At the Museum (Movies)

Any relationship

(Fanfiction)

I'd like to see any of the pairings struggle to overcome the cultural differences between the (for instance, Octavius comes from a time and place where male/male relationships were accepted; Jedediah, not so much).

 

Request 6: Tango and Cash

Any relationship

(Fanfiction)

I'd love to see more about the relationship between Tango and Cash developing from an adversarial one born out of necessity, to frenemies, and then to lovers - basically missing scenes from the movie.

 

Well, I hope you found at least some of my rambling helpful! :) Feel free to ask any questions either here or via a Mod, especially in the fandoms where I haven't been too verbose.

Thank you again for writing for me. I hope you'll enjoy writing my fic as much as I know I’ll enjoy reading it, and I hope you get a wonderful fic yourself!

Dear Author

First of all, thank you so much for being my writer! This is my first time taking part in this fest. I'll try not to screw anything up, but if I do, please let me know :) I'm going to ramble on a bit generally (probably a lot, actually), then try and write something about why I like these fandoms, and give some ideas I've had about possible stories, but feel free to ignore any or all of it if it's not helpful.

 

Truth in advertising – I've copied a lot of this section from my Yuletide 2014 letter!

 

The general stuff...

 

Likes

I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

 

I would like fics that are set mostly in the time periods of the books, and for this reason I'd like fics to be gen (with the exception of the Biggles series in which the characters are already adults – in this case, anything goes, and I'll list my porn-related like and dislikes in that section).

 

I usually like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!). I like to see the progression of a friendship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when their friendship is somewhat unexpected. How do established friendships deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

 

I'm particularly partial to humour in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.

 

I love epistolary fic – not necessarily just in the form of actual letters; diaries are good too.

 

I love women/girls being terrific, good at what they do, and strong in a way that makes sense to them in the society in which they live, whether that’s physically, mentally or emotionally.

 

I enjoy both plot- and character-driven stories. Plots that show off character are perfect – the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years. Back story, missing scene fic, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy.

 

Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested character(s) to be the focus of the story.

 

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one – the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

 

Dislikes

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please. Things I don't like include deathfic (excluding those canons involving canon conflict, though I would prefer OC death rather than canon character death), torture, abuse, and character bashing (except for canon villains! Exception to the exception: Erich von Stalhein in the Biggles fandom who isn't a stereotypical villain). References to past hurts are fine, but please don't make that the focus of the fic

 

Not exactly dislikes, but...

I'm not really familiar with daemons, or the A/B/O set-up, so I'd prefer stories not feature these settings. If you really want to go with either of them you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :) Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.

 

 

Now the specific stuff (these requests are in no particular preference order, BTW)

 

Request 1: Biggles Series - W. E. Johns

Bertie Lissie

(Any Rating)

 

Bertie is my favourite character in this fandom, so I'd like to know more about him - his life before he joined 666 Squadron, why it was that Biggles, Algy and Ginger accepted him into their inner circle, why he feels it necessary to play the 'silly ass' - what makes him tick in general.

 

My head-canon has him being a similar age to Biggles and Algy; if you like this idea, it would be interesting to know what he got up to in WW1, and whether Biggles and Algy (or von Stalhein) were aware of him.

 

I'd love to read about him being in a relationship with Biggles or von Stalhein (or both - the dynamics of this would be fascinating), but this is very optional! :)

 

(Obviously the rest of the nominated characters are welcome, plus guest characters not nominated – Col. Raymond, Wilks, other members of 266 and 666 Squadrons, for example, but please make Bertie the focus of the story)

 

For this fandom I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you don't want to, that's fine too. Likes and squicks:

 

One of my biggest squicks to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female).

 

In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and virgins, and vanilla, and all that comes with that – visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

 

Kinkier stuff is more than ok, too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, poly, voyeurism, exhibitionism, cross-dressing and erotic spanking. I can also go for mild BDSM (not lifestyle; easily slipping into and out of it is fun, particularly with a humourous slant), light bondage/restraints, public sex/sex where there is a risk of being caught, wax play, figging and toys.

 

Squicks are scat, watersports, blood (in a sex context; blood in the course of a day's work is ok), humiliation, lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality.

 

 

Request 2: Coot Club - Arthur Ransome

Any Character

(accidentally chose Any Rating here; should be General Audiences)

 

I'd love to know more about the Death and Glory boys, their backstory, home life, how they came to get involved with the rest of the Coot Club.

 

For Dick and Dorothea, backstory is an interest too. I'd love to know what sort of upbringing they had to end up with such unique personalities. It seems that their parents must have encouraged them in their interests.

 

As with my Biggles request, guest characters are welcome, particularly Tom Dudgeon, Port and Starboard, Mrs Barrable and William the pug.

 

 

Request 3: The Hundred and One Dalmatians - Dodie Smith

Any Character

 

Ideas:

Backstory for Sir Charles and the Spaniel.

 

How the friendship between the White Persian Cat and Pussy Willow came about, and what they get up to together.

 

How/why the Colonel and Pussy Willow joined forces.

 

Guest characters welcome esp. the Staffordshire and his pets.

 

 

Request 4: A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett

Any Character

 

I'd love to read backstory for the Minchins, Ermengarde and Becky.

 

I'd also love to see Ermengarde being awesome in some way. She was the one who made the first move to end the estrangement with Sara after Sara became the maid-of-all-work, and also Sara has no hesitation in deciding to tell Ermengarde about the 'Magic' with no worry that she'll let anyone else know, either by accident and design, so she obviously has hidden depths.

 

It would be interesting to see how Sara's relationship with Becky develops after the end of the book.

 

 

Thank you once again, and I'll love to read anything you want to write!

First of all, thank you so much for being my writer! This is my first time taking part in this fest.

The general stuff...

I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

 

I like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!). I like to see the progression of a friendship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when they don't like each other all that much at first and their friendship is somewhat unexpected. I really enjoy people in relationships that grow from friendship, particularly if that's unexpected too. With established partners: how do they deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

 

I'm particularly partial to humour, wit, sarcasm and silliness in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour that tends towards the sarcastic, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. Awkward conversations that play out terribly, tonally incongruous humor, banter, bickering, friendly arguments, cutting commentary, subtle (or not so subtle) mockery, politeness or the pretense of it as veneer or weapon against the unaware are totally my bag. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, seemingly unrequited longing, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.

 

I love epistolary fic – not necessarily just in the form of actual letters; in a modern setting voicemail, emails, texts, blog posts, message board transcripts, Facebook or Twitter posts will work, in any combination. Diaries are good too.

 

I enjoy plot-driven stories and character-driven stories that focus on relationships. Plots that show off character are perfect – the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years.

 

Any rating is fine with me. I love romance, slow-burn UST to RST, first-time stories, porn - see note at the end of the general section about porn.

 

Back story, missing scene fic, established relationships, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy. I love forced bed sharing, arranged or accidental marriages, and 'pretend' boyfriends.

 

Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested characters to be the focus of the story.

 

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one – the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

 

Swearing, crudity etc is not a problem, and in fact where it is a thing in canon I’d prefer it to be included.

 

Dislikes

 

One of my biggest squicks to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female), so even when a canon (such as the Austen ones) might be expected to make a big deal out of it, please don't go there.

 

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please. Things I don't like include deathfic (excluding those canons involving canon conflict, though I would prefer OC death rather than canon character death), noncon, torture, abuse, infidelity or any other type of partner betrayal, character bashing, and certain kinks (see porn section for details). References to past hurts are fine, but please don't make that the focus of the fic

 

Not exactly dislikes, but...

I'm not really familiar with daemons, or the A/B/O set-up, so if you want to go with these you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :) Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.

 

Porn:

As I said above, I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you don't want to, that's fine too.

 

In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and virgins, and vanilla, and all that comes with that – visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

Now the specific stuff (these requests are in no particular preference order, BTW) :-

 

Request 1: The Lord of the Rings - All Media Types

Boromir/Faramir

(Fanfiction)

 

I much prefer book-Faramir's characterisation. Other than that, anything is welcome, though I'd really like a universe in which Boromir doesn't end up dead.

 

 

Request 2: Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

Charles Bingley/Fitzwilliam Darcy

(Fanfiction)

 

For this request, I'd love a fic set at the beginning of Darcy and Bingley's friendship. What was it about Bingley that first attracted Darcy's attention? I can't see Bingley's charm and good humour being sufficient in themselves. It would be great to see Charles surprise Darcy in a way that would earn his respect as well as his friendship.

 

 

Request 3: Night at the Museum (Movies)

Larry Daley/Ahkmenrah

Jedediah/Octavius (Night at the Museum)

(Fanfiction)

 

I'd like to see any of the pairings struggle to overcome the cultural differences between the (for instance, Octavius comes from a time and place where male/male relationships were accepted; Jedediah, not so much).

 

 

Request 4: Zoolander (2001)

Derek Zoolander/Hansel

(Fanfiction)

 

I'd like to see a story set immediately after the movie in which Derek and Hansel open “The Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too” rather than Derek and Matilda.

 

 

Request 5: MASH (TV)

Sidney Freedman/Father Francis Mulcahy

Maxwell Klinger/Charles Emerson Winchester III

(Fanfiction)

 

Sidney/Mulcahy - the two of them are both involved in counseling/comforting others, albeit in different ways, but who can they turn to for support when they're the ones who need the counsel/comfort? I'd like to see the two of them turn to each other, with the relationship between them develop from professional, to friendship to lovers.

 

Charles/Klinger – an unlikely pairing, but one that intrigues me very much, and I'd like to see how that could come about.

 

 

Well, I hope you found at least some of my rambling helpful! :) Feel free to ask any questions either here or via a Mod, especially in the fandoms where I haven't been too verbose.

 

Thank you again for writing for me. I hope you'll enjoy writing my fic as much as I know I’ll enjoy reading it, and I hope you get a wonderful fic yourself!

Hope you're having a good day! I've made you a wallpaper, but I don't have access to a computer at the moment. Would it be ok if I emailed it to you?

Hope you're having had a great one!!

Since I'm totally lacking in creativity, I took a look through Google Image Search and grabbed a few things that looked fun - I hope you haven't already seen them all!!




Cut (I hope) b/c lots more images... )

You get my inaugural post over here!!

Unfortunately, you don't get any of the piccies I was in the middle of uploading to lj for you when it went kablooey, because it doesn't look like dw has a scrapbook feature and I don't have an account on any of the image-sharing sites :(

So there'll be a belated birthday post with piccies going up at lj as soon as I can get back in, and I hope you've had a great day!
