Thank you for writing for me! I'm excited, as I've never asked for these fandoms before and all three of them are new to me. :D

In case you're wondering about what I like in general, this is basically what I stick on every Yuletide letter:

Here are some things I like: Humor, drama, snark, romance, smiling in the face of absurdity. (You can probably tell from my requests.) My Smutswap letter has lots of details on what I like in porn. I find AUs fun, both canon divergence and actual AUs.

My DNWs are pretty simple: Character bashing/needless sideswipes at characters, noncon, omegaverse. Please don't write me dubcon unless both characters 100% secretly want to have sex (I am fussy otherwise, so best to err on the side of caution).

I like porn! I like gen! I like shippy fic and holding hands! I like longfic and shortfic! I basically love all these characters and will probably be delighted if you like them as much as I do. A variety of prompts, shippy and not, follow, but feel free to go your own way if something makes you happy.

I love friendship, interdependence, found families, and all the fandoms I nominated.

Gentlemen Bastards

Jean Tannen, Locke Lamora

I love these two so much. Wary distrust to iron-strong trust is a serious weakness of mine, and Jean being the size of a tree and also super smart and incredibly loyal is catnip, especially combined with Locke's classic conman nature. I am super-intrigued by the canon setting, and I love capers and plans gone wrong (including both those that swing back to right and those that just have to be abandoned). I ship them like crazy but am happy with good friendship or brotherly feelings, too.

Prompts!

I would love more pre-canon scenes with their tentative friendship turning less tentative; anything that fills in between the flashbacks in canon would be delightful.

My favorite moments in the book were when plans started going sideways and Locke had to think fast (sometimes successfully, sometimes less so). I would love to see a pre-canon job start to finish! The high-wire act the Gentlemen Bastards engage in is so fun, I wish we'd gotten to see more things go right.

Jean and Locke consoling each other after the end of Book 1 (brotherly consolation, pre-slash, actual porn, any of it).

Also fun: Sex pollen, weird Eldern artifacts that make the characters confess things they maybe don't want to, any and all explorations of magic in a universe that does have magic but not very much.

Please include the rest of the Bastards and any other characters from the first book if they fit the story; I really loved the cast.

Please note: I've only read the first book in the series. I don't mind minor spoilers, but anything too focused on canon events past that might leave me (if you'll pardon the expression) at sea. I would prefer not to have Sabetha in any stories, because I haven't met her properly yet.

The LEGO Batman Movie

Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson

The most immediate appeal for me is the crazy humor and the family feelings in the movie. (Did I say I liked found families? I DO.) I love that the movie nodded to so many of the movie and comics variations on Alfred, Dick and Bruce. (I would love to have Alfred and Barbara in any of these stories; I NOTP Bruce/Barbara and kid!Dick/Bruce in pretty much every universe.)

Prompts!

Family game night. Batman's a terrible loser, right?

Adventures! Some of the best and most ridiculous characters in the rogues' gallery show up in the movie. Catman! Harley! Catwoman! Solving crimes, battling worthy opponents, making reluctant allies, learning what the heck is up with Condiment King.

Teamups with other characters in the DCU (any version). I would have killed for tiny LEGO Apollo and Midnighter but I also would love to see how any/all members of the Justice League deals with Batman with a sidekick and Bat-friends.

Father-son bonding! Paintball. Cooking lessons. Dick tries to teach Bruce trapeze. Did baby!Bruce play polo or something? Will he try to teach Dick? (Is Dick afraid of horses?)

The Trials of Alfred, World's Most Patient Butler, and His Idiot Charges. What happens when Bruce gets tired of lobster Thermidor?

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

Alex Fierro, Blitzen, Hearthstone, Magnus Chase

The hardest thing I did this Yuletide was narrow down which characters to ask for. I love the whole cast so, so much, especially Magnus, Blitz, Hearth and Alex. I like how tough and stubborn all four of them are, and how it manifests in very, very different ways.
It's fine to pick just one character or one couple for this fandom. I ship Alex/Magnus and Hearth/Blitz like it's my job. (I would prefer NOT to have Alex/Magnus porn because they are still idiot children in my head. They can do whatever they wanted behind closed doors, I just don't wanna watch. Porn for Blitz and Hearth, though, that is extremely RTMI.) Sam and Amir would be more than welcome in any story, as would Otis and Marvin and pretty much anyone else. (I legit almost nominated Otis and Marvin.)

Prompts!

Blitz made Hearth a tanning bed. A tanning bed, okay. I want The Story of the Tanning Bed. (If you want to write all four characters, Blitz and Hearth telling Magnus and Alex this story, with the inevitable corrections and interruptions, would be a hell of a lot of fun.)

More pre-canon stuff for Blitz and Hearth, full stop. More about the deals Blitz and Hearth struck, especially Hearth's for magic. How does Blitz learn sign language?

Canon-ish adventures are always welcome. Searches for artifacts! Gods being assholes! Weird family trees! (Blitz and Magnus are cousins and I love that.) Split up the usual groups if you want--have Blitzen and Alex working together while Hearth and Magnus are stuck in the wrong realm.

First dates. Double dates. Magnus finally figuring out his confusing mix of emotions about...everything but mostly Alex. I'd love more of Alex and Magnus bonding over being street kids; they haven't had a chance in the first two books. In fact, any kind of hangout fic would be fun, because canon doesn't really have time for that. What's day-to-day business like in the store? Does Alex ever try to teach Magnus pottery? (Is he hopeless? I feel like he's hopeless but I'm open to be proven wrong.)

Please note: I am writing this ahead of the publication of/my reading Book 3, so know in your heart that I know in my heart huge chunks of my headcanons could be Jossed at any time and it doesn't matter. Write to the new canon or stick with Books 1 & 2, it's fine either way. Also, please keep Alex's canon gender intact, thanks.

Exchanges!

I wrote three fics for Yuletide!

My main assignment was Crush, for klose, which is basically light casefic where Midnighter and Dick Grayson flirt shamelessly and there is a lot of discussion of Dick's ass. My betas (Blue and reallyyeahokay) saved my BUTT on this one, because casefic is hard, you guys.

And then I wrote [personal profile] the_rck a treat in the Librarians fandom which puts Jenkins in 1800s France, visiting a famous deathbed: and you'll outlive all you love. I would've hated to write it as a main assignment but as a treat I felt safe going a little tear-jerky. (I owe it all to the canon for a few throwaway lines I glued myself to.)

Last but not least I wrote a fic for one of our fabulous pinch-hitters, elospock: Rememorari, a post-canon Shining (the movie) fic, with a glimpse at grown-up Danny Torrance.

It was a fun year! I'm going to sign up for Chocolate Box too, because that's a 300-word minimum.

I might even try to do more LJing this year. No promises!
lady_ganesh: A Clue card featuring Miss Scarlett. (Default)
I realize I forgot to show off my Yuletide fic! It's a really fun gen fic for Stand Still, Stay Silent, a delightful post-apocalyptic webcomic (which is one one HELL of a cliffhanger atm).

A Pause in Drowning. Check it out if you know the canon! (And go read the canon.)

Here are some things I don't like: Character bashing/needless sideswipes at characters, noncon. I read some dubcon but am weirdly fussy about it, so if you don't already know me it'd probably be easiest not to write it.

I am agnostic about porn: if you want to write it, great! If you don't want to write it, great! I have indicated pairings in my requests where I have them but I like gen too. (In fact, Yuletide is one of my favorite places to get my gen fic.) Porn preferences lean toward m/m.

I love friendship, found families, and all the fandoms I nominated.

Prompts are just suggestions. Feel free to write from your own inspirations!

I got a lovely gem of a story from Better Call Saul, with a hint of Breaking Bad: The niche.

Unfortunately, I didn't actually manage to write any treats this year, but my recipient really loved her main gift, so Yuletide winning is still mine!

And thanks again to everyone who offered to beta...btw, if you need a Hot Fuzz beta, my flist the a place to be. :D (I did not write Hot Fuzz.)

I got an awesome story for Yuletide--an awesome backstory for Wreck-It Ralph, with a lot of cool worldbuilding too.

Becoming Virus, only 1300~ words but with a lot of character work and thought put into it. Thanks again, astraev!

I wrote three stories for the main archive and two for Madness:

Try, Try Again (Is the Title of Santiago's Sex Tape), Brooklyn Nine-Nine, where I take a perfectly good joke and run it into the ground. (Written before the Eric Garner non-indictment and the tensions exposed between mayor and PD. I'm not going to note it on the fic itself but it...felt a little awkard, unfortunately.)

Continuing my tradition of writing Rh Plus for any sucker who requested it, I wrote Let Me See what Spring Is Like on Jupiter and Mars for [personal profile] daegaer. Vampires in spaaaace!

And I decided to try a fandom I'd never tackled before and wrote Daken fic. Reset is a tale of survival, no matter how reluctant.

For Madness:

Bisou, Bisou is Princess Bride fic, the story of Inigo and Fezzick's first kiss. All the Princess Bride fics this year were good, in main Yuletide and Madness, and I find myself wanting to just roll around in Princess Bride-ness.

A Watch and a Fresh Pair of Socks is Jackrum's thoughts at retirement, from Monstrous Regiment and heavily influenced by learning what the original inspiration Jackrum probably was (the sergeant in All Quiet on the Western Front).


I also signed up for [community profile] getyourwordsout again, and pledged to write 300,000 words this year. I made it last year...let's see if I can repeat. Maybe this time I'll even keep up with my flist and stuff.

Don't forget to check out the Weiss Kreuzmas stories! The ones I've read so far are great.

I received Good Intentions, a funny and bittersweet and slightly heart-wrenching Nagi/Mamoru story.

I wrote You Can't Make an Omelet Without Breaking Some Telepaths, about Crawford's work to get Schuldig in place.

Hilariously, Slate then published this article about how violent and terrible that idiom is. Yes, yes it is. That's why it was the perfect title. Hahah.

Then there was Yuletide!

A reminder to read my gift fic, The Ghost of the Grand Hotel, if you know Twin Peaks. Don't let the typo in the summary put you off, it's really, really good.

I wrote three stories:

Due Diligence, a prequel Tiger and Bunny fic about Kotetsu and Tomoe as they wait for Kaede to arrive.

I wrote a fun little RPF AU trifle, To Go and Boldly Raid Someone Else's Cargo, where Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are space pirates, because how could I resist writing that, people.

And then there was the first fic I started, back when letters went up, and the last fic I finished, because the ending! The ending almost killed me. The Not Entirely Accurate Chronicle of John Polidori, Genius Physician and Brilliant Writer, and His Rather Less Distinguished Companions is from the point of view of the physician who accompanied Lord Byron on his rather infamous trip to Geneva, where Byron had a lot of sex and Mary Shelley started Frankenstein.

This was...I think the biggest Yuletide hit I've ever written, guys. And I did it with historical RPF. Go figure. I just got an email that's been podficced, man. IDEK.

I do know I owe my betas big-time, especially [profile] edonohana, who helped me end the Poldori fic and assured me that, yes, it was funny. Guess she was right, huh.

Yuletide!

Hello all! I received a WONDERFUL Yuletide fic. It is about Josie and you all should read it NOW.

The Ghost of the Great Hotel, Twin Peaks, AWESOME. Its structure is just brilliant, if you know the canon at all. (If you don't, I'm afraid it doesn't work as well, as this is just neck deep in the people and setting and canon events. IT'S SO GOOD, GUYS.)

I also enjoyed this World War Z fic, Zack Don't Surf, despite not knowing the canon beyond reading half a sample chapter on a Kindle at Best Buy the other day.

There might be more recs later but I wanted to rec my Yuletide fic as soon as I had time and brain to do so...so here it is!

lady_ganesh: Fire Emblem/Nathan and a flame (hot stuff)
Reveals are more than out and I still haven't read all I wanted to. Oh, Yuletide.

I ended up writing a whole bunch.

The Main Event

I had Annakas as my assigned recipient, and we matched on Rh Plus. The request was great, we shared some favorites...and it took me forever to get a concept I liked. The first two didn't feel enough like canon to suit me. I ended up focusing on one thing we both had in common: A love of Masakazu and Konoe's stupid competitions. I asked myself, "Self, what's the dumbest thing you can think of for teenage boys to compete over?"

The answer was arm wrestling, and Too Wise to Woo Peacably was born!

And then I started worrying that the fic wasn't Konoe-centric enough, so I went back to one of my old drafts and realized that I actually had a halfway decent story there. So I wrote Years Go Falling for annakas too.

And then I realized that there were only two people who requested Rh Plus this year, and [personal profile] daegaer didn't have an Rh Plus story, so I wrote First Taste about Michitaka and Kiyoi.

I also wrote Sleep on the Left Side for [personal profile] opalmatrix, because no one else had written a TJ & Amal story yet, and that was a crime.

we make midnight a maquette of the year was for [personal profile] nyargles, because she wanted Billy and Tommy bonding and I needed to write that so much, I can't even.

Treats!

...yeah, I wrote a lot for Yuletide. Felt good, I've been pretty slow/blocked/meh.

Security. is a fake Veridian Dynamics commercial for samalander, from my beloved (and cancelled) Better Off Ted. I miss that show. Less than a ficlet, I guess, but it was fun! I loved picking out the pictures.

As Yami was a Yuletide fandom, possibly for the first time, I wanted to write something in it. All I managed was Craving, for [personal profile] ranalore.

And one of my favorites this year is Despite Appearances, a very short fic I wrote from the trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Yes, I know it's ridiculous! But my recipient, [personal profile] meinterrupted, saw the trailer in the same way I did, and so I wrote in hopes the movie will be as delightful it looks from that tiny glimpse.

Black Books!

Go read it: Twilight of the Living Dead. Thanks, mystery author, I loved it!

Thank you, [profile] poor_choices!

And I have my Yuletide story at beta! Frabjous day!

Thank you for writing for me! I must say your choices in fandoms are awesome.

Below is my letter with some additional notes and where to find the sources, in case you're curious about a fandom we didn't match on. (I have mostly included US sources, because that's what I know.)

In case you're wondering about what I like in general, this is from last year (and hasn't really changed):

Here are some things I like: Humor, drama, snark, romance, smiling in the face of absurdity. (You can probably tell from my requests.)

Here are some things I don't like: Character bashing/needless sideswipes at characters, noncon. I read some dubcon but am weirdly fussy about it, so if you don't already know me it'd probably be easiest not to write it.

All my Yuletide nominations were approved, and Kreuzmas is coming! Yay!


Dreaming of a [info]weiss_kreuzmas? Coming soon to a f'list near you!
lady_ganesh: Tenpou and Hakkai (five hundred years)
It's the second-most wonderful time of the year, the time when you give credit to your betas and trawl for more hits by posting links to your work.

In no particular order:

I wrote two stories for [community profile] weiss_kreuzmas:

Five Dumb Things Yohji Did (And One that Turned Out Pretty Great) for [personal profile] red_squared. Thanks to [personal profile] lindentreeisle and [personal profile] emungere for betaing this one.

For the bonus round I wrote Sight of Passage for [profile] oracle_dreams. Red and Linden both pulled beta duty on this one.

For the [profile] wk_100 drabble exchange I wrote Ken and Yohji on an unexpected picnic. (Thanks to [personal profile] dormouse_in_tea for catching that I had the wrong character there, yikes!)

And then Yuletide! I wrote one assigned story, two treats, and three Madness fics. (I guess taking a year off really did bring my mojo back.)

Uncertain of All was my assignment (Konzen-centric, Saiyuki Gaiden). I'd had mixed feelings about offering Saiyuki Gaiden, because I write it anyway and it seemed bigger than most of the things I write for, but I figured the franchise rule was the franchise rule, and I knew I could certainly do a good job on it. I felt even better when I saw cease's request letter and found out she loved Konzen and wanted something Konzen-centric. Sold. Thanks to Linden (yeah, I know, it's cause I'm always on chat with her ♥) and [personal profile] nekonexus for doing beta work.

Under the cut 'cause this got long )

Yuletide!

lady_ganesh: Ageha giving the victory sign (ageha (RH plus))
Merry Christmas to all those celebrating! Happy Movies Day to everyone else. ;-)

Time to thank/recognize my gift fics:

Captive Monsters actually went up a few days ago. It's a Weiss Kreuz AU by [personal profile] daegaer, and is just as awesome as all her fics (and uses a very clever conceit).

Understanding is a lovely drabble with Yohji and Omi by [personal profile] vr2lbast.

And then Yuletide! I still don't have my notification email, but realized I could find my fic if I looked under "My Gifts." I landed on the pinch hit list and for the first time got two stories, and they're both great!

boring is a relative state of mind is American Horror Story fic, set after the conclusion of the first season. It features Violet, one of my favorite characters from canon (and maybe the only sensible one), and does a great job of looking at her mental state after everything she's been through. I was a bit worried about getting fic in this fandom after all the twists and turns canon took, but this is just perfect. ♥ EDIT: Also this was a late addition to the pinch hit list and you totally can't tell, it's beautifully constructed.

A Practical Method of Italian Singing is a treat, and what a treat! It features the two ladies who basically run off together towards the end of The Count of Monte Cristo. (You can read this one without knowing the canon but then it's a bit spoilery.) It's so clever, and there's music theory and historical context and it's pretty perfect too. ♥

Thanks to everyone who wrote for me!

FUCK YES

lady_ganesh: Tiny Omi going, "Yay!" (yay! (WK))
In what has to be a record, my Yuletide story is posted.

THANK YOU BETAS YOU ARE AWESOME.

Now to finish my second Weiss_kreuzmas fic. And maybe think about a treat or two. :D
