Last year I got caught unawares by sign-ups, so I wrote as much of this ahead of time as I could in the hopes of organizing my thoughts better. Belated apologies to whoever read through the sprawling mess that was my letter last year. O_o;;; I think I've done better this year, but there's still a lot of babble. Sorry about that!

And without any further ado…

Dear Yuletide Author,

First and foremost I'd like to offer up a huge "Thank You!!" to you for writing a story for me. I know how difficult it can be to put any part of your creative process into the hands of another individual, so I will treat that trust with the care and respect it deserves by trying not to be too greedy or selfish in my requests.

You are free to utilize any prompt I toss out there or none of them. If reading what I like about the characters/worlds sparks a fic idea in your head, feel free to ignore the prompts and run with it. ^_^

Passion comes across and I do not in any way want to dampen yours. ^_^ I certainly won't object if you want to accommodate me in my far-too-verbose additional requests, but as stated many times -- totally not a requirement. ^_^ Go with your gut. The fact that you're writing something for me is plenty enough to have me thrilled and excited and bouncing for joy. ^_^

Thank you, again, and HAPPY YULETIDE! :D

((ETA 10/20/13 12:47 PM -- OMG, author, I’m so sorry. I finally sat down to read this whole thing through and it was LITTERED with SPaG errors and sentences that didn't make sense and prompts and ideas which could have been worded MUCH better. I think I've caught most of the trouble spots now, if you want to give it a reread. Sorry, again! OTZ))

So... a general ahead of time warning… I'm a bit verbose. I usually don't know when to quit talking. So, uh… hope you're comfy? ^_^

And without any further ado…

Dear Yuletide Author,

First and foremost I'd like to offer up a huge "Thank You!!" to you for being willing to write a story for me. I know how difficult it can be to put any part of your creative process into the hands of another individual, so I will treat that trust with the care and respect it deserves by not being too greedy or selfish. I am already happy that you are willing to write a story for me in a fandom of my choosing and with characters of my choice. It would be the icing on the cake if you are willing to include my other requests, as well, but ultimately if they don't work for you, please feel free to ignore them. ^_^

Specific Requests (in no particular order):

(For some of these, I don't have specific prompts in mind. Having done these challenges before, I realize that can be both a blessing and a curse. :-P So, for those for which I have no prompt, I'll try to tell you what I like about those fandoms and characters to at least give you a little guidance. Of course, as mentioned above, you're welcome to ignore everything I say if it doesn't work for you. ^_~ Onward!)

Also… I want to add this as a disclaimer. The length of my babble for each fandom IN NO WAY indicates a preference level. For example, I'm going to be more verbose about Island City than the others, mostly because I'm assuming that no one else knows what it is… since no one offered it and no one else requested it. Other than that, length of verbosity has more to do with where I was when I wrote that segment of the letter and how many plotty thoughts I have on each show than on which one I like most. ^_^

You are free to utilize any prompt I toss out there or none of them. If reading what I like about the characters/worlds sparks a fic idea in your head, feel free to ignore the prompts and run with it. ^_^

1. Red 2 (2013) -- Victoria Winslow (Red 2), Ivan Simanov (Red 2), Sarah Ross (Red 2) )

2. Dark Visions - L. J. Smith -- Gabriel Wolfe, Rob Kessler )

3. Next to Normal - Kitt/Yorkey -- Gabe Goodman, Diana Goodman, Dan Goodman, Natalie Goodman )

4. Eight Days of Luke - Diana Wynne Jones -- David Allard, Luke (Eight Days of Luke) )

5. Island City (1994) -- Greg 23, Michael Mindy, Connie Sealle, Andy Sealle )

*deep breath* And I think that's it. Like I said, if any of the details I provided don't work for you, feel free to toss them out the window and write what's most comfortable for you.

First off, a reminder that I have already pimped my three wonderful gifts on my DW ( 1 for Winter Song (Music Video - Sara Bareilles) and 2 for Sono Te wo Dokero | Hands Off! ). They can also be found on my LJ, if that is your reading preference.

And now… all the other recs. ^_^ Many of these have not been getting a lot of love, because the fandoms are small, even for Yuletide, but they are amazing stories and I would strongly recommend giving them a chance. ^_^

14 recs in Beauty and the Beast (1991), Boston Legal, Dark Is Rising Sequence - Susan Cooper, Devil Went Down to Georgia (Song), Dollhouse, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Fushigi Yuugi, Saturday Night Live/Hamm & Buble - SNL Sketch, Jeremiah (TV), Pippin (Musical), Scarlet Pimpernel - Baroness Orczy, Scarlet Pimpernel - Baroness Orczy/Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis, Shawshank Redemption - All Media Types and Stick It (2006) )

And, AH, THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER FICS THAT I KNOW I'LL WANT TO REC, BUT I HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO READ. ARGH. So, I'm going to put this out there for now and will post more as I have a chance to, probably after author reveals. I mean… damn, I haven't even gotten to most of the book fandoms I love. THERE IS NIGHTRUNNER AND TAMIR FANFIC, GUYS. AND SWORDSPOINT. I can't. I just… ARGH, LIFE. Why so busy? :-P

Anyway, enjoy and please tell the authors you did when you do! ^_^
rchan: (Hair -- Claude -- Yippee!!)
Seriously. It's Yuletide!!!! XD XD XD XD XD

And now, I will pimp my gifts. ^_^

I got three LOVELY stories this year -- TWO for Hands Off! (for a pairing I'd despaired of ever finding a single fic for, much less two!), and one for Winter Song by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson.

Here they are:

Five Time Olive Knew Exactly What To Say (2598 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Winter Song (Music Video - Sara Bareilles)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Brown Haired Girl/Red Haired Girl
Characters: Brown Haired Girl, Red Haired Girl
Summary: Olive is in love with Violet, but Violet is still longing for someone else. So Olive decides to put her feelings aside and to just try to be the friend that Violet needs.

Mild angst, longing, cuddling by the fire, stereotypical winter activities, mild sarcasm, romance, and friendship.

I WANT TO WRAP MYSELF UP IN THIS STORY LIKE A BLANKET AND TAKE IT WITH ME EVERYWHERE. Seriously, the slow build of friendship and then into love between Olive and Violet is so perfect and SO sweet and it's everything I could have ever wanted out of a Yuletide. Seriously. You need a pick-me-up or some warm fuzzies? Go read. It will make your heart heart a little at first, but the ending made me happy cry. *_*

(A link to the video in case you'd like to actually watch it before reading the story. Certainly it's not necessary, but it's a lovely song and the video is so sweet and it really sets the tone for this lovely story. ^_~)

Sunshine and Smiles (1084 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sono Te wo Dokero | Hands Off!
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Urushiyama Yuuto, Oohira Tatsuki
Summary: Yuuto is depressed, Tatsuki has homework to do.

UGH. WHY ARE MY GIFTS SO PERFECT? (WHY AM I ALL CAPSLOCK THIS MORNING? O_o;;; Must be the squee. ^_~) Anyway, I love this little manga and it seems to have SUCH a small following in the Western half of the globe and what little it has seems to focus on Tatsuki and Kotarou. Do not get me wrong -- I adore the hell out of the two of them and their screwball love me/hate me relationship... but it's all I really see. And my pet 'ship in this world is Tatsuki and Yuuto -- they're with each other far more than either is with Kotarou, because they're always thrown into dangerous situations, working together to save Kotarou. And they develop this almost symbiotic relationship that is just amazing to watch unfold... and no one else ever seemed to agree! This story? This story captured every nuance of that relationship PERFECTLY all while dishing up some of the most delicious emotional H/C... just like the series itself *_* LOVE.

An Education. (1285 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sono Te wo Dokero | Hands Off!
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Oohira Tatsuki/Urushiyama Yuuto
Characters: Urushiyama Yuuto, Oohira Tatsuki
Summary: It’s amazing what a near death experience can do for your health. Tatsuki/Yuuto.

AND HERE WE HAVE KISSING. (Again with the capslock... geesh. ^_~) This story is kind of a mirror idea to the one above it. In the first, we see the effects of Yuuto's "absence" (emotional or otherwise) from Tatsuki's point of view and here we get it from Yuuto's. I love all his little asides about how gorgeous he is (and he is ^_~) and how, from within this story, you can see how it's just a pathetic attempt to bolster his own ego since no one else will do it for him. And then Tatsuki steps in and PICKS UP THAT SLACK FOR HIM WHEN HE DIDN'T EXPECT IT. AW. ^_^ And then Tatsuki actually manages to surprise Yuuto with that kiss. SO sweet. ^_^



In short? I have wonderful gifts this year. I never did a rec post for my gifts last year, and for that, I'm truly sorry because I had wonderful gifts then, too. This year, however, I felt compelled to say something because I KNOW I'm the only one who requested Hands Off! and I'm one of maybe two or three who requested Winter Song, so I don't expect these fandoms (and thus these fics) to get a lot of love... AND THEY ALL DESERVE IT. So, if you have a minute or two and these sound interesting... please go read them and tell my writers how amazing they are. Because they are. ^_^

Happy Yuletide!!

(More recs to come when I have the time to browse the archive and actually read stuff other than my own gifts. ^_^)

rchan: (Inuyasha -- osuwari -- stray_wind)
Seriously, guys. DONE. I have written my Yuletide fic (almost 8,000 words), plus 5 treats -- all 2,000 words or more -- all in the last week. I declare myself done. I am not writing another treat. I am not allowing myself to be tempted by another prompt. I AM NOT DOING IT.

*squee* Now, I can't wait for the archive to open tomorrow!!! :D :D :D
