OMG Yuletide sign ups are open!
This is where my My Dear Yuletide Writer letter shall be for this year!
More or less this is basically a copy paste with some sligth changes from my last years (and the years before that) letter.
Dear Yule Writer
I hope you will have fun in writing your fic and please know I am grateful to see new and shiny fic in any one of my beloved, but very rare, fandoms. So thank you for being willing to write in one/(some?) of them in the first place. The fact that you are a fellow admirer of at least one of them makes me already like you. Be assured that none of the fandoms I chose here are place fillers, so I will indeed be very pleased to get a fic from any of them and I wont be disappointed in your choice be it A B C or D.
The things I write here as useful guidelines you can chuck out if they don't fit you and not as orders you must obey. Don't be scared away. Remember optional details are optional! Also please don't let me scare you away by my rambling ways.
I am mostly a slash girl but know that I adore gen and best friends forever bonding aka BFF fics too. So don't feel pressured to write slash if that is not your cup of tea.
Unfortunately I am very very particular about het fics and read it in very select few trusted fandoms, so it is safer to stay on the slash or gen genre with me. If you go with gen fic, instead of slash, then please no outside romantic relationships for any of the guys.
Any and all ratings are fine with me. Smut it up as much as you please or have a fic where there is no romance and the characters talk and drink tea instead. I read it all and I like it all. So no worries about me being bored either way, all ratings are good with me.
I like action adventure, cultural differences, character driven, plot driven, romance driven, dialogue driven, character self and other analysis driven ect fics. I like witty banter and sarcastic humor, or crazy crack fics. I like warm sweet fics and I like character in the grey/cold mentally or literally searching hope/warmth fics. Moral ambiguity, loyalty pulling in different directions, melancholy and character introspection are always interesting to me.
Angst in reasonable doses is fine too put not over the top I want to slit my wrists in sadness by the end fics. Please no tragedy! So a happy or semi happy, bitter sweet ending with measure of hope would be appreciated. So genre wise I guess most things are safe with me.
Things I do not like are song fics, character bashing, over feminizing the male characters so that they act like stereotypical lovelorn teen girls with crushes, partner betrayal, character jumping from one relationship to other, cheating, graphic torture, graphic rape non con, fics full of only angst and no hope, and romantic melodramas.
In the romantic melodrama I mean supposedly serious fics where the characters react to every slight/perceived slight in a juvenile melodramatic way. For example drama for dramas sake or soap opera reactions are not my thing. I guess the best example would be where you see adult characters act like the stereotypical temper tantrum giving teenagers (not that most real teenagers act like stereotypical teenagers, most of them have an undeserved bad rep, but I guess you get the point). Where the characters don't communicate at all and instead always go all "woe is meee, you bastard how could you? I'll never forgive you and hate you forever and now I am dating your biggest enemy instead as a revenge, for he knows how to treat me" fics are not my cup of tea.
Unless the romantic melodrama is in a crack humor fic, then I will love it.
I adore fluff and sweetness in fics that are awkward and cute and seeped in friendship, then I'll melt in to a puddle of goo and love it. Awkward first times and saying I love you in a roundabout way is one of my sure kinks.
P.S: Men with long hair and some play with it will definitely push my kink buttons on the nicest of ways. *Stares at Haruka and Souichi with glassy devouring eyes*.
I do like crossovers but in Yuletide I would prefer the focus to be on my requested fandoms, or the crossover fandoms be from my previous Yuletide fandoms or just some short comeos. Yuletide for me is all about my beloved rare fandoms and those getting some love.( Here you will find Black & White, J'en Suis!, Rh Plus, The Tyrant Falls In Love )
I hope you will have fun in writing your Yuletide fic. And remember optional details are optional. So if these do not fit you, forget them and just write what you want. I will like it anyway.
