First off, I want to say thank you for writing for me this year. Yuletide is one of my favorite challenges and I am really excited to see whatever you come up with. I apologize in advance if you have any stress at all and hopefully this letter at least helps a little.
As far as things I like go the general list is:
I like everything from slash to het to threesomes (huge fan of those! lol). Rating wise I am fine with anything between PG and NC-17. Porn related favorites of mine are manhandling, rough sex, public sex, teasing, getting caught in the act, clothes sharing, possessiveness/jealousy.
If you aren’t a porn writer and would prefer not to write it I wouldn’t mind either! I don’t want to make you feel pressured at all and just wanted to put it out there that I am open to it.
As far as story likes go I enjoy hurt/comfort (not too particular on how that happens, injury, sickness, kidnapping/rescue – I love all scenarios), team work/ensemble fics, angst with a happy ending, kidfic (more the process of having a child/how it changes a person’s life than focus on the child) – fine with regular pregnancy/mpreg/adoption, supernatural elements (werewolves, shifters, mutants, wings), secret relationships that get found out and the fall out from that, pretending to be a couple where real feelings develop, falling into a relationship without knowing it, soulbonding/soulmates, and end of the world scenarios.
I also really love crossovers, and will have some crossover prompts at the end of this letter!
And my dislikes are:
humiliation, unequal relationships, permanent injury, slavery, crack, tooth rotting fluff, major character death, unhappy endings, infidelity/partner betrayal, and a/b/o (where there is major focus on omega’s being suppressed or a society that looks down on them).
I love all these fandoms pretty equally and would not have requested each one if I didn’t want a story for it. Some prompts have been repeated from past years at this exchange or others, some sound similar to ones I’ve given in other fandoms, and in general I wouldn’t be opposed if a prompt/idea in one fandom was used for a story in another.
Every year I’ve participated in Yuletide I’ve requested this fandom and I’ve adored the stories I’ve gotten for it. This is one of the fandoms of my heart and I am so incredibly happy it was accepted this year.
My favorite character is Brian O’Conner. I love the way he’s introduced in this film and the decisions he makes. I love that there is so much we still don’t know about him and the possibilities for his backstory. I also love how competent he is as a cop and would love to know more about that side of him.
I definitely ship Brian/Dom and have enjoyed them from the beginning. Brian was pulled into Dom’s gravity and because of him he went against his fellow cops. I also like how Dom pulled him into the group and integrated him into his family so easily. I would love anything focused on the two of them.
Characters Requested – Brian O’Connor, Dominic Toretto
Favorite Ships and Relationships – Brian/Dom, Brian/Dom/Letty, Brian/Dom/Letty/Mia
Characters not requested but that I enjoy -Letty Ortiz, Mia Toretto
I am so very glad my friend talked me into watching this show earlier than I had planned! I absolutely adore it and its everything I loved about shows like Smallville and Arrow. Barry is an absolutely amazing character and I love his dorkiness and his vulnerability. I love that he is so much a hero and it’s not in a tortured or conflicted way, it’s very ingrained in who he is.
What surprised me the most about this show is how much I adore the relationship between Barry and Joe. I did not expect to get such an amazing father-son relationship from this show. Each episode I live in fear they are going to kill Joe and I don’t want that. I loved Joe’s reaction to seeing Barry as the Flash and how much he believes in him. I love that Barry is Joe’s son and everyone knows that (including Barry and Joe).
Characters Requested – Barry Allen, Joe West
Favorite Ships – Barry/Iris, Barry/Oliver
Characters not requested but that I enjoy – Iris West, Oliver Queen
Ultimate Spider-Man (Cartoon)
I never thought I’d request a cartoon for Yuletide but here I am. I absolutely adore this show and it surprised me so much. This was my “show to watch when I didn’t have anything else to watch” show and it took me months to finish it but I enjoyed it so much. It’s probably my favorite version of Spider-Man that’s out there and I love it’s take on the marvel universe.
I requested Peter and Harry because that was the part of the show I kept wanting more from. I just love their friendship so much and how much it weighs on Peter that he’s lying to him. I want a big reveal, I want Harry accepting Peter, I want Harry getting himself involved in Peter’s world, and I want these boys being stupidly in love with each other and always putting each other first. I also would not mind seeing Peter’s team being a part of this, Coulson, Aunt May, Fury.
Characters Requested – Peter Parker, Harry Osborn
Favorite Ships – Peter/Harry
Characters not requested but that I enjoy – Phil Coulson, Aunt May, Nick Fury, Tony Stark (okay really any of the superheroes Peter fanboys all over)
I just got done rewatching season 1 so most of my requests are going to focus on that (I am going to try to rewatch season 2 but at the moment its been awhile since I’ve seen it so I’m not too clear on the charaters/plot other than the very last scene lol). I really love this show and am always going to be sad about the fact it was cancelled. I was hooked from the opening dialogue (Sarah talking about sharing a nightmare with her son before he was born, I get shivers everytime I hear it!)
I love this version of John Connor. I love that he’s just a kid in an extremely fucked up situation and all he wants is to have a normal life and escape the destiny he’s always had. It’s clear how much Sarah loves him and I adore the relationship between them too.
The reason I requested John and Derek is because it’s my favorite relationship in the entire show. My favorite scene in the show was when Derek revealed he knew John was Kyle’s son. I would absolutely love to see this explored more.
I also have a fascination with Kyle Reese (especially with the reveal that Derek is his brother) so a lot of prompts include him too.
In general I really adore the team ofJohn/Derek/Sarah/Cameron that the first season gave us, I think they work well together and wouldn’t mind seeing anything with them. (I don’t mind any ships, ship anyone with anyone if you want to)
Characters Requested – John Connor, Derek Reese
Characters not nominated but that I enjoy Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, Cameron
