Hello Yuletide author!

Thank you for signing up for this great fest, and for wanting to write a story for me. I’m pretty easy to write for; I read a lot of fanfic in a lot of different genres, and am up for almost anything. I love dark, deep fics (I’m okay with character death as well) the most, but I can also really enjoy a happy fluffy one. The ideas below are just a couple of things that I like about the fandoms; feel free to write something completely different than what I’m asking for!

I do have a couple of do not wants: graphic self-harm, zombies, mpreg and genderswaps.


I loved this series to pieces, and Sasha was my absolute favourite character. She pretends she’s so strong, while deep inside she’s just broken. I would love to see a future fic where she gets cast into a company and gets to transform her pain into dance. Or a look at how she became friends with Boo when they were younger. And how did she feel without ballet to back her up when she was cheerleading instead? There are so many avenues to explore with Sasha!

Topher, Adelle

Dollhouse is one of those series that I could rewatch time and again, because there’s always something different to discover. It never fails to amaze me how little Dollhouse fanfic there is, because it seems like such a huge universe.
My favourite characters are Topher and Adelle, and especially in relation to each other. I would love to get a look at Adelle after the events of Epitaph 2. Or how did Topher feel, up on that tower, finally setting ‘his’ wrongs to right?

A happier look at the beginning of their work (together or apart) would be fun too, when Topher was still excited about the technology and Adelle still believed in what they were doing.

Or an insight in how they felt after Echoes and they were both back to feeling normal.

Finding Carter
Carter, Grant, Max, Taylor

This is such an adorable series! I love Carter, and though I’m not the biggest fan of her rebellious streak I get that she’s acting out after her entire world got turned upside down.

Grant might just be the most underappreciated character ever, and I would love to have a look at how bleak his life was before Carter was back home and he was the replacement. I would love to have a look in the life of the Wilson’s in general before Carter came home. How horrible was Taylor’s birthday? How did they spend the anniversary of Carter’s kidnapping every year?

If this is too bleak for you, there’s always Max, who is the most perfect boy to ever live. He is absolutely adorable, and any story that features him would make me happy.

The Night Shift

I’m a fan of medical dramas in general, but this one crept up on me from a pretty mediocre start to must-watch TV in the eight episodes it has had. I especially love Krista, who is not only pretty, but also caring and good at her job. I would love to have a look at her life before the hospital, when she was plagued by her bulimia and so insecure. Or how her first shift went, and how hard that must have been. Or maybe the bulimia patient triggers something in her and she has to fight to keep it in.

I signed up for another Bingo, [community profile] genprompt_bingo this time! Every fill should at least have 100 words or 3 recs (for the things I'd use to fill these anyway; other options are of course available). I should be able to manage this, I think! I'm already inspired by some of these, so hopefully I'll soon found the time and energy soon to write some stories!

It will be a Terrible Scandal Superpowers Lazy Day Snow and Ice Dissociation / Multiple Personalities
Puppets Outsider / Outlaw Winter Priceless Illness
Songfic Episode Tags and Missing Scenes Wild Card Initiation / Hazing Isolation / Loneliness
The Writing on the Wall Decay Heirs Shopping Together Strength
Songs from Childhood Push and Pull Affection Desert Worst case scenario

This is actually my first time doing an exchange, so I'm pretty nervous... Which I guess fits with the Halloween theme! (For my flisters: this is my letter for the Trick or Treat Halloween exchange, which is a low-requirement fanfic/fanartexchange).

In general I'm probably pretty easy to please. I read a lot of fanfic in a lot of different genres and a lot of different fandoms; I'm okay with almost anything.

For tricks I am a fan of supernatural AUs (in so far as my fandoms aren't supernatural) - vampires, superpowers, demons, you name it, or stories about character deaths/dying characters (either from sucidial, supernatural or health-related causes). I'm okay with self-harm, but not too graphic, please.

For treats I'm okay with almost anything from fluffy nonsense to general happiness to friends running through sunflowers.

Below are a couple of ideas per fandom to get your mind going, but these are in no way the only things I would want to read!

Do not wants:
Zombies. Mpreg. Genderswaps.

Point Pleasant:
Judy, Christina
I love the relationship between these two; I am 100% certain that Judy was in love with Christina at one point, and I would have loved it had she been the one to save her. Though I love them as friends or apart too.

There are the stories about Christina struggling with who she is, Judy struggling with her place in life. Maybe a look at Judy just after she found out about her sister. Did anybody ever tell her it was suicide? Or a look at Christina just after Jesse tried to kill her.

A happier route could be an AU route where Judy actually did save Christina, or where her mom was the good person she was meant to be. Or a look at Judy before this all went down and her family was still whole.

Switched at Birth:
Bay, Emmett, Toby, Daphne
I love looks at the relationships between any of these four; they each have their own special dynamic that is worth looking at. A supernatural AU would be awesome - I can just see Bay and Emmett team up to fight vampires, or Toby's amazement at him finding out he has superpowers. I'd rather see them together than at odds with each other; I especially love the sisterly dynamic between Bay and Daphne and hate it when they fight.

Doctor Who:
I haven't seen all of Ace's stories yet (I'm up to Ghost Light), so if you end up writing about Ace, please avoid any spoilers. I would love for her to go out on an adventure on her own, or to save the doctor. He is so fatherly towards her that it would be great to see him depend on her for a change. To be honest, I haven't read Doctor Who fanfic yet, and I don't really know what to expect from it; so anything you can write would be good!

Agents of Shield:
Skye is my baby, my absolute favourite character of the 2013-2014 season. Anything you could write about her, I'd be happy about. Write about how she finally has found a place she belongs, how she's part of a team now. Write about how betrayed she feels about Ward. What would have happened - how she would have felt - had she not stopped the guy and let him kill Ward. I'm a major Skye/Coulson shipper, but I'm fine with any ship, except for Skye/Ward, or no ship at all.

Finding Carter:
Max, Carter
Carter is such a complex character, it must be so interesting to delve into her mind. Her boyfriend has shot her best friend. Her mom was actually a kidnapper. How does she deal with that, feel about that? So many roads that could have been taken differently (what if she had left with her mom, what if she had never been found in the first place and had accidentally ran into Taylor or Grant...?).

Max is the most adorable guy on the planet. I love his relationship with Taylor, I so love his relationship with Grant, so a look at any of these two would be a real treat!

I'm pretty sure that everyone here knows about my love for (*cough*obsession with*cough*) land comms, and I'm equally sure that most of you who want to join womenverse have already done so. But I noticed last round that everyone with perfect participation gets a shiny banner, so I figured I'd try for that!

Womenverse is, as its banner proudly proclaims, a social challenge community to celebrate women from ALL fandoms.

It's a lot of fun to see so much love for the female characters! I'm on team stilettos (which would make a lot of sense if you'd ever seen inside my shoe closet). Come and join me!

My fall schedule, because some traditions just shouldn't be broken!

7 new shows to try this fall, which is slightly down from last year (when we had 10 new shows). I'm most excited about Red Band Scoiety - I've already seen the pilot, and I loved it. It brings our total up to 17 shows, which is one down from last year.

Find the details and the pretties behind the cut!Collapse )
