Yuletide 2016

October 6th, 2016 (08:16 pm)

Dear Yuletide author,

Hello and happy holiday season! Thanks for writing for me. <3 Here are some things to hopefully make things easier on you, copied almost verbatim from last year's note because my tastes don't change much. Take all the following with a grain of salt, because any fic with the fandom/character will make me incredibly happy.

Nifty things: I prefer gen/friendship or non-explicit pairings, love actiony plot- or character-driven work, and have huge sucker buttons for crossovers/AUs, competence, and catharsis. Backstory details, missing scenes and motivation introspection are also amazing. I adore the Work For Your Happy Ending trope and enjoy hurt/comfort, deepening relationships, fluff, snarky banter, and taking ridiculous premises and turning it into something that makes sense.

For dislikes: I have issues with reading downer endings, horror, gore, political commentary, awkward/embarrasing situations, and character death. This won't apply to most requests, but I'm also not interested in incest, sex, or any non-consensual situation. Unless it's story-dependent, I can do without prejudice of any sort. Lastly, not a fan of first or second person POV.

If you want some further sources on what I read and write, I have a fanfiction.net profile and a tumblr — my long-defunct livejournal (dead except for this annual letter) is absurdly out of date and my AO3 page doesn’t have everything.

Again, thanks for undertaking to give me a lovely fandom present, and I hope you're just as lucky! For convenience I have my prompts below.

Ocianne

Request 1:
Fandom: Magic Kaito
Character(s): Hakuba Saguru
Prompt: Saguru has made so few appearances in the canon, I'd love to see something filling in the between times. Cases? Family? He doesn't want to arrest Kid after all, so stopped chasing? Some other fandom's insanity swept him up, and "studying in England" is a cover story? I love his brilliance and liminal nature, and there's so many secrets he could be hiding behind a smug façade… what could make it crack, who would see, how would they react? Friendship or pairing with Kaito and/or Aoko, or any crossovers, are love.

(This is the fandom that Wren Truesong tempted me into Yuletide for back in 2013, and it's been my primary fandom since 2006. As a four volume manga series currently incomplete with ongoing guest appearances in the much larger Detective Conan manga, all of it has been scanlated by fans and is still floating around the net. Phantom Thieves, Detectives, and Stage Magic, oh my.)

Request 2:
Fandom: Chrono Trigger
Character(s): Maou|Magus, Schala|Sara
Prompt: Anything between these two would make me happy, whether as children in Zeal or something post-canon of Magus trying to find Schala, or even an introspection of The Prophet's second run through the Zeal timeline. Feel free to choose one or the other for focus and barely mention the other, if you're so inspired. Also feel free to use or ignore CT:DS or Chrono Cross canon, and bring in other characters for the ride!

(CT was the first video game I every played myself, and the Zeal sibs forever hold a small piece of my heart. They both deserved better, and I always hope for stories that give them, if not a happy ending, at least some peace.)

Request 3:
Fandom: Perfume (Band)
Character(s): Any
Prompt: So I'm currently a bit obsessed with Spending All My Time and Pick Me Up. I'd love a fic about either one—how do the girls finally manage to escape from their boarding school/lab? Or what happened to the mannequin doubles after the escapes happen? Heck, ARE the SAMT girls somehow the mannequins, having gone from one trap to another? Are the dance moves actually a private sign language? If you could write anything about either music video plot, whether prequel, sequel, or mid-plot expansion, I will love to read it.

Dear author,

Hello! Happy Yuletide season! Thanks for writing for me. <3 Here are some things to hopefully make things easier on you, copied a great deal from last year's note because my tastes don't change much. Take all the following with a grain of salt, because any fic with the fandom/character will make me incredibly happy.

Nifty things: I prefer gen/friendship or non-explicit pairings, love actiony plot- or character-driven work, and have huge sucker buttons for crossovers/AUs, competence, and catharsis. Backstory details, missing scenes and motivations are also amazing. I adore the Work For Your Happy Ending trope and enjoy hurt/comfort, deepening relationships, fluff, snarky banter, and taking crack and turning it into something that makes sense.

Request 2:
Fandom: Treasure Planet
Character(s): Captain Amelia
Prompt: If you could give me a story behind Amelia's rise to captainship I would adore you till the ends of time. When did she meet Mr. Arrow? How hard did she have to prove herself? What sort of ships did she captain before Dr. Doppler hired her, and how did he hear of her name? Anything Amelia-centric will make me happy, but I'm a sucker for character motivation exploration.

Request 3:

Dear author,

Hello! Thanks for writing for me. Here are some things to hopefully make things easier on you, if you want more information than I could manage in the initial prompt. If you look further on my livejournal you’ll find that the following is copied from my 2013 note, because my fic preference are essentially unchanged.

Nifty things: I prefer gen/friendship or non-explicit pairings, love actiony plot- or character-driven work, and have huge sucker buttons for crossovers/AUs, competence, and catharsis. Backstory details, missing scenes and motivations are also amazing. I adore the Work For Your Happy Ending trope and enjoy hurt/comfort, deepening relationships, fluff, snarky banter, and taking crack and turning it into something that makes sense.

For dislikes: I'm not a fan of downer endings, horror, gore, politics, or character death.

Friendship or pairing with Kaito and/or Aoko, or any crossovers, are love.

Request 2:
Fandome: Bourne Movies
Character(s): Aaron Cross
Prompt: I would love a backstory fic exploring the process of Ken becoming Aaron and his perspective of who he was before compared to who he is now. (If you somehow fix the dialogue gaff about what Kenneth's recruiter would have /actually/ had to fudge, not the IQ test, in order for Kenneth to be recruited, I will love you forever.) Alternately, I'd greatly enjoy a crossover fic wherein Aaron is somehow connected to either Clint Barton of the Avengers and/or William Brandt in MI6.

Request 3:
Fandom: Treasure Planet
Character(s): Captain Amelia
Prompt: Dearest author, if you could give me a story behind Amelia's rise to captainship I would adore you 'til the ends of time. When did she meet Mr. Arrow? How hard did she have to prove herself? What sort of ships did she captain before Dr. Doppler hired her, and how did he hear of her name? Anything Amelia-centric will make me happy, but I'm a sucker for character motivation exploration.

Yuletide 2013 -- Dear Yule Goat...

Dear author,

Hello! Thanks for writing for me. This is my first Yuletide, but here's some things to hopefully make things easier on you, if you want more information than I could manage in the initial prompt.

Nifty things: I prefer gen/friendship or non-explicit pairings, love actiony plot- or character-driven work, and have huge sucker buttons for crossovers/AUs, competence, and catharsis.

If you want some further sources on what I read and write, I have a fanfiction.net profile — my long-defunct livejournal has nothing unique, my AO3 page is only a fraction of my work, and I don't have a tumblr.

Again, thanks for undertaking to give me lovely fandom present, and I hope you're just as lucky!

ETA: And for convenience, my prompts.

Magic Kaito
Character(s): Saguru Hakuba
Saguru has made so few appearances in the canon, I'd love to see something filling in the between times. Cases? Family? He doesn't want to arrest Kid after all, so stopped chasing? Some other fandom's insanity swept him up, and "studying in England" is a cover story? I love his brilliance and liminal nature, and there's so many secrets he could be hiding behind a smug façade… Friendship or pairing with Kaito, Aoko, Akako, or any crossovers are love.

Final Fantasy VI
Character(s): Edgar Figaro and Locke
Friendship interaction of any sort. Maybe their first meeting? Did one recruit the other into the Retuners? Did Locke know Sabin, to commiserate with Edgar about missing him? Did Edgar ever confide the woes of kingship? Did Locke ever steal Edgar away from the most boring policy meeting on the planet? Or after the game ends, does Lock ever visit Figaro to reminisce or shoot the breeze or maybe pull of the king-heist? Any additional characters that wander into the story are welcome.

Bourne Legacy
Character(s): Aaron Cross
Backstory fic that explores the process of Ken becoming Aaron, or maybe Aaron and Marta making new identities after the movie ends? I like gen or the Marta/Aaron pairing, nothing explicit.

Tales of Vesparia
Characters: Any
Post-game shenanigans, backstory, missing scenes, take your pick. I like just about anything that's introspective, vaguely plotful, or character-motivation-exploring. Flynn and Yuri have a great friendly rivalry, and I'm a sucker for the rules-based, sweet and earnest but stuck with an awful commander situation that Flynn gets stuck in. My first preference would be to see pretty much anything with Flynn and Yuri, but Estelle and Raven are great too, and I ship Yuri/Estelle.

We're Done Here

November 10th, 2008 (03:50 pm)

Barring unforeseen circumstances, there will be no more updates here. Fic in its most current incarnation is all on www.fanfiction.net.

That's all, folks.

...Yeah, real life has caused semi-retirement from LJ. *shrugs*

Meme ganked from Ellen, because I commented and that requires a return post, so:

Comment and I'll...

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

In return, you must post this in your LJ.

So... Um. I didn't essentially forget about having a livejournal for the past six months... these are not the droids you're looking for.

Good writing news: Promenade has hit Chapter 15 published and counting, with most of two event-arcs still remaining to be writren. Plus Sequel. Plus Sequel gaiden. All of which I WILL write eventually.

Bad writing news: Converting chapters to LJ format is a massive pain, because I write really long chapters with lots of italics, and tweak said chapters every once in a while as well. A major tweak recently occurred, and all LJ Promenade chapters are currently outdated, and I don't have time to keep them updated. That said, www.fanfiction.net is FAR easier to change, and is currently up to date.

Thusly:
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2978396/1/Promenade

Reviews/comments still appreciated. And go givesnickerer cookies, because she's the best theory-editor a girl could ask for.

More to come, particularly if I ever let the bunnies that AREN'T Promenade-related out to play again... or if I find an interesting meme. Anyone have suggestions?

Leaving tonight for the next two and a half weeks. Doubt I'll have internet until I get back, so if I owe you an email or a response, sorry! I'll get back to you after. Have a wonderful two weeks, world!

Crack-Omake-Meme-Thing

May 26th, 2007 (08:15 pm)

The dangers of trying to crossover KH2 with Kingdom hearts: You get some really weird crackbunnies. Spawned from the idea of the terror it would be if Aoko were a keyblade bearer, the bunnies offered prospective keyblades for all the other characters as well... Please note that this is /not/ Promenade canon. Because that would just be too scary for words.
