Dear Yuletide Author

Hi, there fellow Yuletider. I'm super happy that someone matched with me and I hope writing a story will be easy and fun for you. :) I tried to come up with some general things I like and then a few more specific prompts and hopefully some of it makes sense... ^_^; (some parts of this are just copy-pasted from last year's letter...)

Hi, there fellow Yuletider. I'm super happy that someone matched with me and I hope writing a story will be easy and fun for you. :) I tried to come up with some general things I like and then a few more specific prompts and hopefully some of it makes sense... ^_^; (some parts of this are just copy-pasted from last year's letter...)

Here goes:



  1. I would prefer the story to be slash, but pre-slash or friendship fic is fine too

  2. All ratings are fine, I love some smut in fics, but I will happily read a G rated story. If you want to write a story with a rating above PG-13 anything is fine if you avoid writing about heavy/unusual kink. (painplay, non-con, anything to do with shit/piss etc)

  3. I tried to pick only two characters per fandom, in the hopes of making matching easier, but I will love a story that has appearances from other canon characters. (not a must obviously)

  4. If none of my ideas work for you, don't worry about writing something completely different. I like that kind of surprises and I don't want writing a story for me to feel like a horrible chore.

  5. Things/tropes that I don't like: abuse, animal harm, wing-fic, always-a-girl trope, mundane AU's, telepathy, unhappy endings --> major character death (but angst is fine, within reason)

  6. Tropes I especially like: soulbonds, trope inversion in general but especially in A/B/O, friends-to-lovers, pining, mpreg, world building, arranged marriage/fake dating, kidfic, historical AUs, fantasy or scifi settings (obviously you don't have to write all OR any of these)


Temeraire

I would be more than happy to get a story focusing on Laurence’s relationship with Tharkay. I would prefer slash but gen would be okay too. Because the books are mostly from Laurence’s pov it would be awesome if the story you wrote wasn’t.

I’m a big fan of ‘what if’ stories so for example what if Tharkay had somehow gone with them to South America. Or what if Tharkay had stayed in Australia and gotten one of the dragons from the eggs? Basically I'd love a story that is a canon au.

I also love small character moments. I would love to read something about what Tharkay has been up to while Laurence was in the Americas. Anything about Tharkay and his relationship with Laurence and or Temeraire would be awesome. (I really want Tharkay to have his own dragon! I'm sure a dragon in South America would have
adopted him!)

Breakfast With Scot


I love this movie and I've watched it at least four times... :D It's one of my feel good movies, so I would hate to read a super angsty story about it. Although, if you want to write a story about the time Eric was hurt and had to quit hockey and how Sam took care of him... I would love to read that. So I guess angst is fine if there is a happy ending. :)

Basically I would like a story about Eric and Sam, what they are like together. The movie was super concentrated on Scot and them dealing with the situation, so Eric/Sam relationship didn't really have much room. So I would love a story about them before Scot came into their life and how they worked together back then (there is room for angst here too obviously, with how closeted Eric was even during the movie and I won't mind if you want to deal with that)

But I would also like a story that is set post movie. Like we see little snippets about their life during the credits and those are adorable. Like how Scot went back to figure skating etc. So writing about their family life is great too, if you want to write a slice of life snippet or something fluffy.


Rome

I don't think I could ever get tired of this dynamic that the characters have. I'll happily read anything you came up with, but something set during the second season would be lovely (maybe during their time in Egypt?) I also wouldn't mind some fix it for the ending (I'm a big softie)

I wouldn't mind an AU either, like what if they were in some kind of Gen Kill situation (modern military) or something with a scifi setting?

Lucius is my favourite character even with his HUGE character flaws, so I it would be cool to have a story set from Pullo's pov and what he thinks about Lucius
. (I really don't like how he treated his wife, so I'd like to pretend all that stuff didn't happen, or at least please don't have that as the focus of your fic. It's fine to have him regret what he did etc, realize what a dick he was in hindsight, but yeah...)


The Eagle

This fandom is made for role reversal fics, so I would love to read something set during their time beyond the wall.

I don't want a modern AU for this fandom, I think the whole thing would lose its shine for me... Also I'd rather not read about the time before they left (the whole nursemaid thing does nothing for me and I don't really enjoy Esca in his slave role) Feel free to write something canon divergent past movie canon. I haven't read the books. Esca is fascinating to me so if you don't want to write shippy fic I would be more than happy to have a character study type of fic or anything from his pov.


(I seem to be super bad at this letter writing this year, I apologise... Basically if you write anything set during the canon era I'll be happy)

Anything about Tharkay and his relationship with Laurence and or Temeraire would be awesome. (I really want Tharkay to have his own dragon! I'm sure a dragon in South America would have adopted him!)



Mighty Ducks

Personally I was sad how they kept making Adam's role smaller and smaller as the movies went on, so a story focusing on him would be awesome, or a story where I get to see Charlie appreciate Adam for how awesome he is. :D So if you don't want to do slash, a story set during canon would be perfect, where they are just friends. I know it's kind of silly but Adam was my favourite character, so as long as you don't bash him, I will love what you write.

I would love future fic for this fandom. I want to know what happened to them after they graduated high school? What would they be like as adults? Like did Adam become a NHL player? What if he came back to Minnesota and met with Charlie again. Is Charlie a coach maybe? Does he run that hockey shop?

Of course I would love a slash story about the boys, like maybe they bump into each other and then go on an awkward first date? Or what if they are already together and Adam becomes the first NHL player to come out?


You could also write a story set in high school of course. The whole dorm thing etc. :D I don't know if you know this, but high school hockey is a big deal in Minnesota so the really good players are kind of local celebrities already and the college players definitely are well known and followed. So a story set in college would be fun too (Do they play for the Gophers?)


Yotsuba &!

I'm super interested in the relationship between Koiwai and Jumbo. The series is from a little girl's pov so it's really hard to figure things out. (one of the more obvious things is, what does Koiwai do for a living? Or maybe I've missed something in the canon) aaanyway, my headcanon is that they're dating, so if you also can see that happening I'd love to read something about their relationship.



Generation Kill

I've always been a huge Brad/Ray shipper and it always made me sad how rare the pairing was, so shippy fic would be loved. ^_^; They were such an old married couple in the show and the same sort of sentiment is also expressed in the book and I just love their dynamic.

I don't have any specific ideas as to what kind of fic I'd want especially when it comes to setting. post-canon is fine or a fic set during the show is alse great. I wouldn't want an AU where they both work in a bakery though. (fantastical AU's are fine though, like what if they're space-marines? or a story set in the Firefly universe? Or what if they're both members of Starfleet?)


Aubrey-Maturin series

I came into this fandom through the movie and I've only read the first two books, so I can't say I'm the most ardent fan, but I really love the characters and their relationship. (again I'd prefer slash but gen is fine too) There was the moment in Post Captain where they were sneaking into Spain and Jack was hurt and then they finally got to Stephen's villa(?) and I was like: Yay! And then the narrative totally skipped over the time they spent there! So a fic set in that time, or some other point in canon that's skipped over would be nice. I don't mind small spoilers if you want to set the fic during one of the later books, so feel free to pick a moment you thought was intriguing.

I really love historical settings in fiction and to have them be in a coffeeshop!AU would kind of ruin it for me (but like steampunk setting or space AU, or Stephen is a vampire/shapeshifter, or Jack is a dragon captain ala Temeraire etc would be more than fine with me.)


Washington Capitals RPF

I've always been weirded out how there's no fic about Nick/Sasha. They seem like such an obvious ship to me. I really like the difference between their personalties (introvert/extrovet), how they are so amazing together on the ice etc.

This article is really great http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/capitals/capitals-introvert-nicklas-backstrom-is-the-guy-who-makes-this-team-run/2014/10/10/378c61cc-5087-11e4-8c24-487e92bc997b_story.html, so if that inspires you in some way when it comes to team dynamics etc. (I love how they call Nick the dad of the team, does that make Ovie the mom?)

I'm super annoyed that I can't find a torrent link for the new HBO 24/7 Leafs Red Wings episode. Grr... Well hopefully I can manage it tomorrow.

I forgot to mention this, but I got two stories as Yuletide presents this year. So amazing! :D

The Kane/Toews fic I'm writing is now 4,800 words long. (it's set in the same abo universe as the other hockey fic I wrote. I have a lot of ideas for it, but I dunno if I can ever write all the stories.) How does this keep happening to me? What is it like to write a short fic? I'm super jealous of people who can manage it.

The Wild play tonight. Please please win!? Also the Leafs play and Bozak should be back. queue the drama! I think he's been playing fine this year, so some of the hate he gets seems a bit unfair, but I haven't been following the team that long, so what do I know. The Ducks are on a ten game winning streak, whoo~  (I kind of wish someone would write a story about Getzlaf and Perry. idk why I want it, but I do.)

I also finally watched the documentary about Selanne, as I got the DVD as a christmas present and I don't know if I wanted to know that much about the guy... Also Saku Koivu wasn't in it *pout* I kind of wished they would have done something together in it. There was some stuff about Selanne and that guy Kariya, which was pretty good too. I would definitely read fic about them, if it existed. (Selanne said at one point that one of his jobs as a Duck was to make Kariya human, which I find very interesting. :D)

Uh oh, so last ditch effort, does anyone on my flist have time to SPAG beta a Yuletide fic of 2284 words, for an obscure book fandom? (Iskryne) But seriously you don't have to understand anything about the actual fic if you could fix my punctuation and wonky sentences? *puppy eyes* The reveals are on the 25th, so I have until then to edit the story. yes, found a beta, the Yuletide community is awesome! :D

Anyway, I actually wrote something and didn't default, so that's good at least...

Oh and mom just took the ham out of the oven. It smells great and I can't wait to have a few bites. Let's see if we have any ham left on Christmas Eve dinner. ^_^;

I have decided that the ship has sailed on me seeing the 1D movie in the cinema... I just can't do it by myself. >_>

I watched the three Mighty Ducks movies yesterday and they were pretty great.  I did not know they were set in Minnesota, that is a funny coincedence, also the random hockey players were hilarious, I can't believe they got Gretzky in one!

In the first two the coach had a way too big of a role for my tastes, after all weren't these kids movies? So why would kids care about some middle aged mans mid-life crisis? Also the main kid character is Peter from Fringe and I will never get over this fact. :D Now I wish there was a fic where Peter gets de-aged to that sulky 14 year old he was in D3. I would laugh forever. :D

I super want a fic where Charlie and Adam Banks meet when they are adults and Adam plays in the NHL and then they fall in love. This is what I want right now.

(I was really sad that they kept making Banks's part smaller and smaller, so he was barely in the third one. *pout* Also the poor actor hasn't done well for himself afterwards. I couldn't even find a photo of what he looks like as a grown up. I also thought the girl goalie looked familiar but I'm not sure. And are girls even allowed to play in the same team with guys at that level? I have no idea...)

Waaah~ why hasn't the hockey season started yet? I'm so frustrated reading about preseason games when I can't watch them. *whines*

Now I'm agonizing with my Yuletide nominations, because I already nominated Goon and I'm not sure if I want to use another slot to Nom the Mighty Ducks movies too...

Hockey fic is now 37,600 words long and because I now know my posting date I've been avoiding writing it, as I have a lot of time all of a sudden... I really should just get this thing done already. At least I made some progress with my emotionally stunted hockey player pov character. Should be all smooth sailing from here on out, right? *nervous laughter* 
oanja: (Criminal Minds Garcia)
Waah~ Yuletide nominations are almost here! :D My first year of nominating something and second year of writing something for it. I'm really glad I did it last year, it was a lot more fun than I would have thought it was.

I think I'm going to nominate hockey movies: Goon, Breakfast With Scot and the Mighty Ducks. :D

They changed the nominations and now two people have to nominate the same thing for it to make it into the fest. I think that will weed out a lot of fandoms and leave the more popular rare fandoms. Some people seem upset about it and I can see why. Especially because there is no way of knowing when a fandom has already passed the two people threshold, so people are going to keep nominating some things, just to make sure they get through and basically waste their nominations... I think it will be interesting to see what kind of fandoms there are going to be this year.

I have a class tomorrow!!! First day of the fall semester. Of course it's about the laws that govern social work. I'm sure it will be super riveting first thing in the morning (from 9.00 to 13.00)

Oh and I watched the recap show from the Euro hockey tour and Finland beat Sweden 5-0. Muah ha ha! :D I wonder how many guys will make the Olympic team from the SM-liiga and KHL, because I think we have really good players in them and they would already be used to the big ice etc. I bet a lot of the D-men will come from the European leagues as we don't have many guys playing in the NHL anyway and the ones that are there aren't that great. And like Komarov and Korpikoski must be pretty high on the list for forwards? Idk, I guess we'll find out later. :D I wonder when they will reveal the jerseys? I hope someone will post about it on tumblr or I might miss it. (I tried to google it, but my google-fu is even worse in Finnish than it is in English...) I hope they won't look like the jersey's the team wore in this tournament, because they looked awful. Unless all teams have made a bet on who can have the worst looking uniforms in these Olympics. I guess that's a possibility. I don't think anyone is going to beat the USA team though. Theirs look so awful.

Oh and Minnesota revealed their new white jerseys today and they look good. :D (the green looks pretty black in some of these, so I wonder what they will look like on TV, but still, I like how they look. If I was rich I would get one.)

The NHL lockout finally ended... Now the question is, do I want to pay some company to see the matches? (I would need to buy some kind of recorder as well, I mean the games must air at super inconvenient times, at like 4am or something.)

I don't get why I procrastinate so much, I even avoid doing things that are fun, like writing fic. This is a really fucking serious problem, because don't even get me started on how I haven't even started working on my thesis. *fuck*

I have two fics due for challenges and neither one is even close to being finished. >_>

But anyway, here is My Shelter fic that I wrote for Yuletide. If you haven't seen the movie I'd definitely recommend it. It's awesome and it's kind of like the best kidfic in movie form.
oanja: (HP Ron sitting by the window)
Whee~ . It' I got a story set in the Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb  and it's super awesome. ((But damn the challenge community on LJ is super spammy. >_>)) Also went through the list of fandoms on AO3 and read a few stories from the collection, but yeah mostly the fandoms were a bit too obscure for me. =D And that really is the beauty of the whole thing.

I'm already kind of bored of staying at my mom's... I wonder how long I need to stay without hurting her feelings. ^_^;

The Vampire Diaries continues to be both ridiculous and awesome. I've watched two and a half seasons so far and I feel exhausted. I bet if the people in the show were actual people they would all have had nervous breakdowns. The show has only covered a year in real time (for the characters) and they never catch a break, ever.

Uh oh, the Teen Wolf fic is due soon and I really really need to start working on it asap. >_< I just don't get why it's so hard to actually accomplish things. I'm so jealous of people who have their shit together.

And hey look at that, the moodtheme thing is perfect for the season... x)
oanja: (Default)
I think my Yuletide fic is done and I sent a message to someone, asking them to beta read it. *fingers crossed* I think it turned out okay... It's really hard for me to say, especially because I've never written for the fandom before, but hopefully my recipient won't feel let down by it. ;___; (it's so scary to write for someone specifically.)

I finished watching the first season of The Vampire Diaries and I liked it. =D The first episode was pretty silly and generic but it got a lot better as the season went on. (the female characters were really nice, I liked them a lot generally, which is rare for me, so yay for that. Matt and Alaric are my over all favourites though. <3)

more vampire diaries rambles )

oanja: (text fascinated by work)

Whaa~ I'm almost done with my Yuletide fic. \0/ I'm super happy about this. First time participating and I didn't even need to default. =D Also I've been working on my teen wolf reverse bang fic (I abandoned my first idea because it was getting way too long and I would have needed a lot more time to finish it) I'm really hoping that I'll be able to finish this new one in time for the posting date. *gulp*

I went to clean up my old place today and took the last bits and pieces with me. I'm really happy with this new apartment, it's so so nice to have my own place. 

Then something silly:

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

I could have done a lot worse tbh )
oanja: (Default)
Hi,

So this is my first year in participating and I didn't really know that when you chose characters the writer is supposed to write about all of them "unless your recipient specifies otherwise"

Luckily I only picked two characters in three of my requests but I want to clear up that in the one where I have four picked it doesn't mean you should need to try and squeeze all of them into your story.

Also I think my prompts on that one are a bit unclear. I listed out a lot of things I thought would be cool but I meant them as options, not like one huge list of all the things I want in my story. Like I would love to see one of them written or something completely different if you had a cool idea of your own. =)
