(Updated 10/24/2015 to include Yuleporn prompts at the bottom of each section and a link to my Crueltide prompt for Request #1. This should be the last major update, apart from me catching typos. ^_^)

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.

Specific Requests (in no particular order):

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. ^_^

Also, length of babble in no way indicates my fandom preferences. It’s just that I’ve been requesting some of these longer than others and that’s given me time to try to streamline things down. I promise I’m equally excited about the possibility of all six of these requests. ^_^

1. Cal Leandros -- Rob Thurman -- Robin Goodfellow (Cal Leandros), Ishiah (Cal Leandros), Caliban Leandros )

2. Doctrine of Labyrinths -- Sarah Monette -- Mehitabel Parr, Enid Lemeria, Stephen Teverius )

3. Island City (1994) -- Greg 23, Connie Sealle, Andy Sealle )

4. Jeremiah (TV) -- Markus Alexander, Jeremiah (Jeremiah), Erin (Jeremiah), Theo Coleridge )

5. Power Rangers Dino Thunder -- Conner McKnight, Derrick (Power Rangers), Eric McKnight )

*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. If you are happy and excited about what you're writing, I'm sure I will love 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

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…

I am done with my Yuletide nominations, finally. O_o;;; I was pretty happy with the idea of Island City, Jeremiah and Dark Visions, but then someone else went and nominated Dark Visions. Which was awesome, because it left me free to nominate something else, but... I choked. O_o;;; I had such trouble picking a third fandom that I almost didn't. But last minute I had a flash of nostalgia and checked out the fic totals for the Mighty Ducks movies and it's WELL under the 1000 fic limit. And dude... Mighty Ducks. *_* And on top of that, apparently less than a week ago, the Ducks HAD A REUNION and Marguerite Moreau did a ton of pictures and posted them all on Instagram. *wobble eyes*

Here's all the pictures:
Averman, Karp, Mendoza and Moreau, Flying V, Mendoza, Germaine, Moreau, Banks, Portman, Gunner Stahl, Goldberg, and last but not least... ConnieandGuy (OMG, I CAN'T, SHE ACTUALLY TAGGED IT THAT WAY. TT^TT)

(ETA: Oh gosh, there are more:
Everyone, Gaffney and Moreau, More ConnieandGuy, More group shots, Karp, Moreau, and I think the director? Seriously though. The gift that just keeps on giving. XD)

*coughs* So, yeah. There's my third nomination. And I feel ~mildly~ bad for not nominating her as a result, but... well. :-P Only four character slots. *sigh*

SO. Final noms go to...

Island City (1994)
Characters
Greg 23
Michael Mindy
Connie Sealle
Andy Sealle

Jeremiah (TV)
Characters
Markus Alexander
Jeremiah (Jeremiah)
Erin (Jeremiah)
Theo Coleridge

Mighty Ducks (Movies)
Characters
Guy Germaine
Adam Banks
Jesse Hall
Charlie Conway

Well, I guess it is. The brainstorming post is already up for Yuletide.

And here's mine.

And wow, narrowing this down to three was hard. Hard as in "I haven't yet managed it." -.-;;; So I'm nowhere near ready for a pimp post yet, but last year Yuletide MAJORLY caught me with my pants down and I'm trying this new thing where I try not to let things creep up on my like that. And the sooner I settle on these things, the faster I'll get a letter written and the less stressed I'll be. SO. In the interest of that... actually getting a comment on the brainstorming post is certainly a step in the right direction.

So, here's what I'm thinking of (I'm leaning very strongly towards the first three, but if anyone else is interesting in nominating the other three, I would certainly be grateful. ^_^):

Island City (1994)
1. Greg 23
2. Michael Mindy
3. Connie Sealle
4. Andy Sealle

Jeremiah (TV)
1. Jeremiah
2. Markus
3. Erin
4. Theo Coleridge

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

Astropilots (Omni, No 1) -- Laura J. Mixon
1. Jason (Stiletto) McLeod
2. Sssrei
3. Andrea Ito
4. Tram (Oh darn. I forget his full name, I'll have to look it up. Vice Admiral Trammerden or something, I think? :-P)

Murphy's Lore Series -- Patrick Thomas
...there are honestly so many characters I'd want to nominate in this series I'm not even sure where to start. -.-;;;
1. John Murphy
2. Loki
3. Negrel
4. Hex
...just off the top of my head. -.-;;;

Red 2 (2013)
1. Victoria
2. Ivan
3. Sarah

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! ^_^

(Edited -- 10/31/12 -- added pictures and videos for a little more fun. Hey. I'm stuck in Sandy-land. Sitting at McDonald's and tweaking my DYA letter is one of the few pleasures still open to me. ^_~)

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

So, without any further ado…

Dear Yuletide Author,

First and foremost I'd like to offer up a huge "Thank You!!" to you for writing 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 me a story 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):

(Uh, one warning. 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!)

Thank you, again, and HAPPY WRITING!

*eyes icon* No, Setsuka. Just... no. I really won't. Why? Because I live on Long Island and we've gotten more snow so far this season than freaking Anchorage, Alaska. That is not right. O_O It's Alaska. We're... not. *twitch*

Anyone who doesn't want to listen to me babble about general life, TV shows, ficcage and Hair (again)... flee now. ^_^ )

Final bit of random other news: I am one of the new mods for [livejournal.com profile] 15_minute_fic, successor to the now defunct, [livejournal.com profile] 15minuteficlets. Long story. ^_^ Anyway, the point of the comm is that every week a word is posted under a cut tag. Once you look at the word, you have 15 minutes to write... whatever. ^_^ It's kind of a fun way to get your writing juices flowing when you're a little stuck. Head on over and check it out! We could use some fresh meat. ;D

I think I'm gonna go toddle off and do some writing or something. ^_^ *waves* Later!

Starting word count for OB part 5 rewrite: 8,694

2564 / 10117 words. 25% done!
rchan: (MD -- Dwayne -- more fun for me if you r)
^_^ The point is... I lost 4 frickin' pounds this week. O_O Go stomach flu. ^_^ (Yeah, ask me how sick I was this week. Really. O_O I was so dizzy from nausea and the shakes that I actually passed out on the bathroom floor. -.-;;; New life experience: passing out... not as much fun as touted, actually.) That puts me at a grand total of 64 lbs... and a mere 11 pounds away from the top of my healthy weight ranger range. (Yeesh. Apparently, my subconscious wants to work on a PR fic... Bad subconscious. O_O) Hot damn. ^_^ Also... dude. I fit consistently into size 10 jeans now and I was able to button, zip and sit down in a pair of size 8 corduroys. @_@;;; I can't speak for the rest of you, but I'm floored. And happy. And my waist is frickin' 34 1/2 inches. XD When I started it was closer to 43 inches. *does the happy dance* And I almost fit into a pair of my mom's old jeans... which are a size 14.

What do you think, girls? Clothing manufacturers playing a hell of a trick on us to try to convince us that overweight is the new average? I sure as hell think so. When I comfortably fit into those jeans, I'll be wearing a size 8 in current sizes. They're a 14. This stuns me. And saddens me a little. As a country, our "average" size has gotten 3-4 sizes fatter than it was 40 years ago. That's kind of sad. Talk about lowering the average to meet the masses. O_o;;; And what really stuns me is that, as a whole, we haven't noticed the change. *twitch*

OK, but enough babbling about weight loss. Must babble about something else. Thanks to being bedridden for two days (and the fact that it's blessedly on Hulu, right now), I've been rewatching Jeremiah. I forgot how much I adore that series. It even makes Luke Perry kind of tolerable. ^_^ I think I will end up having to fic for it, because, dude... Marcus just demands some fic attention. Really.

And really... most of you won't know the series and won't care about the babbling, but I feel the need to babble anyway.

So, would someone just read and smile and nod for me? It'd make me feel better about the babbling at no one thing. ^_^ )

Duuuuude. And now I want Jeremiah icons. Hey, [livejournal.com profile] zoicite, if I find good pictures, would you oblige me? ;D
