[personal profile] chokolattejedi
How is it Yuletide again? Where did the year go? I am both excited and exhausted by this. :P Anyway, wonderful author, I realize that you might totally be on top of your game and have already written my story by this point, or at least have it plotted out or something, and in which case I give you free reign to completely ignore this letter. I mean it. You do you. :) That said, if you didn't have any free time until now like me and want some more details about my requests, then by all means read on! :D

As usual, I am going to liberally copy and paste much from past letters. :D

Things I love, in general: Aliens made us do it, amazing hair, angst, animal sidekicks/pets, antisocial geniuses, bi- or pansexuality, blood, boys in eyeliner, chaotic neutral or similar characters, chocolate, comedy, cooking, dark themes, death, dragons, drag queens, dress uniforms/suiting up, double agents, dub-con, evil cliffhanger endings, femslash, fluff, geekboys, geekery, geekgirls, gen, glasses (and/or glasses!kink), goddesses/gods, goth or punk AUs, happy endings, het, hijinks, hurt/comfort, illness, insanity, kitties, meta, OT3s, ploty things, random little life/death snippets, shenanigans, shiny things, slash, snark, sneaking, sparkly things, spies, spunky chicks, squee, tomboys, tough-on-the-outside bishies, tricks and tricksters, unhappy endings, whump… and more, I'm sure.

Things I dislike, in general: character bashing, glorified gay bashing (where the basher doesn't get comeuppance later), cheating on partners, dental practice AUs, non-con, pwp, graphic sex scenes, scatology, watersports.

Other things, in general: You may treat my character requests as "OR" requests, not "And" requests. That is, if I request A, B and C, and you have a great idea for just B, go for it!

Oh, and because I know some people are tetchy about it: if you would like to attempt a Misses Claus fill or a Chromatic fill with one of my prompts, that's cool. :D

Author, if you saw that I posted in the Crueltide post, but you just can't do darkfic, please don't worry. I would genuinely love any of my lighter prompts! :D

The above may or may not apply to any of my current requests, which I'll detail now.



Request Fandom 1: Protector of the Small - Tamora Pierce
Keladry of Mindelan

Request: I'd love a missing scene from Kel's page/squire years. Something with Neal and her group of friends, or a moment with Raoul or the men of the Own. Or perhaps something from her second year as a Knight. I'd love something set in New Hope, maybe with Neal, Owen, Tobe, Raoul, Dom, or anyone else you'd like to add. Could Kel one day take on a squire of her own? Or train young girls in some other fashion? Just give me something Kel-centric and I'll love it!

**If you get stuck and want to read these, Kel's first two books are very short. Squire and Lady Knight can be read on their own with minimal confusion – in fact, Squire is the first Tortall book I ever read, and I didn't even realize there were two quartets and two Kel books I'd totally missed until I finished and looked at the back jacket. :D **

More Details: I love Kel's strength through everything. Not physically, though she's got that too, but her unwavering dedication to her goal. I love her quiet sense of humor, and her amused tolerance of Neal's wild antics, and her compassion for others. I love how she takes on Tobe, and Jump, and the Sparrows, and Owen, and everyone else she "adopts" at one point.

I love her friendships with Neal and the other boys, and her motherly ways towards Lalasa, the younger pages, and Tobe. I love her mentor-student relationship with Raoul, and the hints of one with Alanna (what about that moment Aly dreamt of – does Kel finally get to hang out with Alanna for a while?). I love the hints of a relationship with Dom, and that would be a great thing to explore. Also the comradery with the men of the Own or the Haven convicts/soldiers/people.

As I said, I'd love a missing scene from her Page or Squire years. Maybe something with Neal, or Lalassa, or the Sparrows. Maybe a moment with Edna the Wildcat.

Or, something from her future as a Lady Knight. How long was she at New Hope? What happened there as the war drew on? Was she ever assigned elsewhere? Was she ever injured in battle? What happened afterwards? Did she and Dom ever hook up? How did her relationships with Tobe and the Haven/New Hope people evolve/stay the same? Gimmie gimmie!

If you ship, Kel/Dom or Kel/Lalasa please. No cross-generation ships, please.


Request Fandom 2: Dragonriders of Pern – Anne McCaffrey
Menolly, Robinton, Sebell, Talmor

Request: Harper quartet! Thank you to whoever nominated this group! I'd love something set right after Menolly's second book, when she's in the hall and finding her place. Alternatively, something from before she came – what was life in the Harper Hall like for one or both of the boys? Or life before? Or anything from Robinton's life! You totally don't have to include all four characters in one story. Just one or two is fine too.

**Talmor only appears in Dragonsinger, which also features the other three, and is really the time period I'm interested in. So if you'd like to jump into this one, there's really only one book that you'd need to read/review. Reading Dragonsong first would give a bit more to Menolly's backstory, too. Alternatively, something from Robinton's life when he's a bit younger would mean reading Dragonharper, but again, easy to jump in without reading the rest of the series.**

More Details:
I love love love Dragonsinger, and that time period in the Harper Hall. I love Menolly's group with Sebell, Talmor, and Domick. I love the mentorship relationship with Menolly and Robinton, and also the kind of mentorship/sibling relationship between Menolly and Sebell and/or Talmor. I'd love anything set in that era!

Something from right before Menolly got to the Hall, focusing on one of the boys could also be great. How did Sebell or Talmor come to the Hall? What was their life like before? How did they feel about walking the tables? Ooh, or what was the conversation when Sebell and Talmor each refused to give way in walking Menolly?

Or anything in Robinton's life. I love love love him and his so so tragic backstory and dear god Anne what were you trying to do to me in that book!!! So yes, anything else with him! (and I know his book actually sort of covers Sebell coming to the Hall, but elaborating on that or handwaving it if you have a cooler idea;) )

I just don't even think I can express how much I love Harpers, and this period of Pern History, and the Harper Hall, and oh, Peimur and Silvina and anyone else are welcome to come to the party too!

If you ship, Menolly/Sebell, Menolly/Talmor, Menolly/Peimur, or Robinton/Silvina please. No cross-generation ships, please.


Request Fandom 3: WALL-E

Request: I love this movie! It is so adorable and yet such a scathing commentary on society! WALL-E is adorable, and Mo, EVE, and the others are so fun! I'd love something about WALL-E getting to the point he's at at the start of the movie, or a missing scene during the movie, or something about the robots afterwards.

**This is a standard length movie, thus easy to jump into.**

More Details:
I just really love this movie, you guys. It gives me the warm fuzzies every time I watch WALL-E and EVE get together, and even the background characters are awesome and oh my god you guys! I just really love the feel of this movie.

That said, I also love the subtle commentary on our society and the HAL homage and all of the other not-so-fuzzy aspects. So feel free to play with them! Also, I didn't make it in time for crueltide this year, but yeah, feel free to go in any kind of evil robot apocalypse kind of direction if that is where your muse takes you. Maybe the HAL-esque Captain wins! Maybe this is all part of WALL-E's evil secret plot to destroy humans the way he destroyed the other WALL-Es! Maye a zombie virus wipes out the humans after they return! Maybe Mo goes crazy and cleans everyone to death! Go crazy!

If you ship, WALL-E/EVE please (Background Jane/John is fine).


Request Fandom 4: Cracked: After Hours

Request: I am not-so-secretly addicted to this youtube series! I love the character interactions, I love the geeky references, and I love the hints of subtext/backstory! Poor Dan's issues and obsession with Spiderman! Soren's obsession with perfection (and maybe Daniel ;) )! Michael's inappropriateness and obsession with food! Katie's feminism and gothy tendancies! I love it all! I'd love to see what happens before or after the After Hours, or an AH-like episode!

**This is a web series, with most episodes coming in under ten minutes. So in the time it would take you to watch a normal movie you can crank through a dozen of these.**

More Details: Okay, so this is about as close to RPF as I get. I mean, I know that CAH are personas, but they are close to the real people, too. So what I'm saying is that you are an RPFer you can feel free to include real life stuff for them and I will think you are very clever, but the ties to their real selves will just go over my head. :D

Okay, with that disclaimer out of the way, on to what I love. I love the fact that these are just four best friends/frenemies/people whiling away their time until they inevitably drift apart (as Soren likes to think) who just gather around to talk meta. I love that there are rules (sometimes) but that the person demanding to adhere to them changes (Usually Daniel, but Katie in that epilogue episode that Soren derails. JUMANJI!).

Michael's occasional insightfulness (calling that racism in Forest Gump thing without even seeing it!) is also fun, as is his usual oblivious dofusness (I already took the red pill. Put ranch on it!). Dan's issues are hilarious to watch, especially in the episodes where they specifically tear into him. (The wooing episode, the cops episode, the zombie episode: "You all've been zombies for weeks. Months for some of you." "Sure."

I love Soren's jock tendancies, and how he every so often lets them slip aside and lets his inner geek come out. (Though, as he states in the comicon episode, he isn't "out" as a geek, like them). :D Katie's alternating between sweet and girly (Katie's House of Pies and Little Cat Pies) and bloodthirsty and vicious ("There's brain and blood spatter, and everything! It's the best!") is probably my favorite!

Also, the background characters are great, like that guy-who-works-here-but-also-at-the-other-diner (which mysteriously burned down and Michael had nothing to do with it, he swears!). Ooh, and what about the blue gloves at the end of the Firefly episode! I would read the heck out of that AU-verse!

Also, I love how each of them had to go through that episode where their love was torn down: Batman/Bond for Soren, Spidy for Dan ("I'm Spiderman in mine"), Star Trek for Michael, and... come to think of it, I don't think Katie's had this episode, though she got close to it when she teamed up with Dan...

If you ship, Dan/Soren (those looks! so close to being canon!), Soren/Katie (all the subtext in the Batman episode!), Dan/Michael (the Mario episode!), Dan/Soren/Katie/Michael (Because why not?) please.



Additionally, browsing me on AO3 will lead you to my writings, including stuff in Pern, Tortall, and Cracked AntiherOs, if you think that would be helpful or fun. :D

I think that's everything! Thanks so much!!!
