Troll the Ancient Yuletide Carol...

Dear Yuletide Writer,

I’m so sorry this is late in coming up. I’ve had a lot going on lately, then got sick like whoa. Anyway, this is my first year to do yuletide, so please forgive any errors, mistakes, or lapses in judgement. I tend to be a big fan of femslash, and I typically write it as such too, but I’m also open to whatever, be it het, gen, etc. If something’s not okay, I’ll let you know in that category.

Baby-Sitter’s Club: I grew up reading this series and it was my first love as far as reading goes. I’m drawn to femslash pairings here, and I’ve written a few of them myself, but I’m okay with general friendship fics also if femslash isn’t your deal. I don’t mind more mature content, but if you do go that route, I do like more plot than porn, if you get my drift. My favorites are Abby, Anna, Kristy and Shannon, obviously because they’re part of my request form, but including the others is totally fine as well. I’m a big fan of the idea of the four characters I mentioned being a pack of friends throughout high school, regardless of any romantic goings on or not. I don’t mind M-rated stories with underage characters, but please not sitters/charges. If one character is sixteen and one is eighteen, that’s totally fine, but I think it’s too weird to have an age gap like that of the sitters/charges for a relationship with that age period, let alone sex fic.

Castle: This is a more recent obsession of mine, and it’s amazing how in love with this show I’ve become. I’m more of a fan of the main Kate/Rick pairing, and definitely want something written in that vein. I like the idea of an established relationship, or even just the typical “defining the relationship” moments at the very beginning of one. I love the Castle family dynamic and how much of a role they could potentially play (and really already do) with Kate in giving her the family that she so desperately wants and needs. Family fic is wonderful, whether it’s the main story or just in the background. I don’t mind mature with this fandom, but like I said before, I like a little more plot than porn.

Disney RPF: This is the fandom that I’ve really been the most active in for the past couple of years. I’ve written several oneshots and a big epically long chaptered story, so I’m quite familiar with it all. I tend to write femslash within this fandom mostly, but I’m also a big het fan too, so whichever you’re most comfortable with. Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, and Miley Cyrus are my faves, and I’m okay with any combination of them. I’m also okay with general friendship stories as well. One idea that I would love love love is a fic that centers around the Jonas Brothers song “Black Keys” and who Nick could’ve possibly written about. If you aren’t all that familiar with this fandom and don’t feel like jumping into that quagmire, then just any story involving them. I don’t mind underage here, but just for the record, these four are now all officially eighteen, so that shouldn’t be too big of a deal.

John Mayer/Taylor Swift RPF: I got obsessed with them back in August when I saw a few performances and pictures and decided that something had either happened, or someone wanted it to. Imagine my shock when “Speak Now” drops, along with the song “Dear John” and the fact that we were right all along. To get a better read on these two, my friend leobrat has a master post with all the known fic of these two out there, located here. I personally would love an M-rated story (sexytimes and all), but if that is too weird or uncomfortable for you, just any story will work. There’s so little fic for these two that beggars can’t be choosers.

Okay, I think that’s about all. My journal is locked, but this post will stay open. I have a fic comm, mixtape_fiction, that is open and all my writings are posted there. Also, I tend to have a fairly lax friending policy, so feel free to friend me because I probably won’t be thinking about Yuletide and secrets with that. Hope you enjoy, and I just want to say a huge thanks for your willingness to write and share.

pimping myself here, but I wrote a John/Taylor fic here and don't know if you saw it or not.

I did read it, and apparently I never left a comment? *FACEPALM* I did love it, and I will rectify that glaring oversight immediately.

Oh it's okay! I just wanted to make sure you saw it. And thank you very much.

I'm not your Yuletide author, but I'd like to write you a bsc fic for Christmas, if you want it.

Just name the pairing and I'll write it out for you. :)

Aw, thank you! I'd love it, actually, but I've seen exactly how much writing you're undertaking lately, and I don't want you to stress yourself out with it. Anything on any of the four girls I mentioned, and I do mean anything. It doesn't have to be a pairing necessarily; I love character studies and those sorts of things as well. I love the idea of a potential friendship dynamic for those four together as they move through high school, so if you wanted to do something with that, go for it. Like I said, I really appreciate the offer. Are you doing Yuletide this year, or just NaNo? Oh, and your icon is the most adorable thing ever!

Thank you for the icon compliment! I made it the other day, for Christmas time.

I'm actually not doing Yuletide this year. I've never done it, although I've always wanted to. Nano is actually done for the year too. I wrote around 80K in November and need to separate from that story for awhile. But I'm happy with what I got accomplished.

Abby, Anna, Kristy and Shannon it is! I'm already getting an idea for a fic. My only problem will be condensing it into just one fic and not trying to do a series, as I tend to do in the BSC fandom. :)

Annnnd sorry about that. That was another account, I didn't realize I was logged into, lol.
