Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi, new favorite person! I love all of these fandoms, and I’m so excited that you’ve offered one of them! I can’t wait to read whatever you write for me. Here are some of my general likes/dislikes before I get into the specific requests.

Likes: character-driven stories, romance (I generally lean towards canon pairings as specified below), female friendships, slow burn UST, porn (if appropriate), backstory and missing scene fic, best friends who fall in love, banter and bickering, fake relationship tropes, and men who adore the women in their lives. I have a preference for happier/more hopeful endings, and female characters are almost always my favorites. I talk a lot about romance in my requests, but I love reading great gen and friendship fic as well. I really love AUs, and I’ve specified a few fandoms below that I would love to receive an AU for. If you have any questions on this or anything else, ask the mods and I’ll be happy to answer!

Dislikes: misogyny, noncon or dubcon, major character death (you can use anything that’s already canon of course), character bashing, infidelity, excessive embarrassment, unrequited female pining, nice guysTM.

This is my seventh year participating in Yuletide! If you’d like to take a look at some of what I’ve written to get a better idea, my fic master list is located here and almost everything is archived over at for_the_coast or AO3, otherwise it’s in my fic tag on Tumblr. My journal is primarily locked (although if you go through my Yuletide tag, my past letters are all public), but I have Tumblr (x) and a GoodReads account (x), and both of those are public and a pretty good reflection of what I like.

I’m the type of writer who likes more details rather than less when I’m writing a story for someone else, so my requests generally reflect that. You can choose what you would like to take or leave based on what works for you. These are just some of my ideas, but they are certainly not the complete list of stories I would like to read for any of these fandoms. I know whatever you write is going to be great!

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi, new favorite person!! I'm so excited that you're writing a story for me. I love all of these fandoms, and the fact that you love one of them enough to offer it means that you are inherently awesome and I love you automatically :D Here are some basics on what I like to read before I get on to the specific requests!

ment; til the moment you're gone

some yuletide recs

This is the result of my initial run through the archive. I have a ton still to read, but I wanted to get as much as I could up before the reveal. Aaaaand, I still have comments to go back and leave for a lot of these, the ones that I read earlier this week in the static archive while AO3 was in the middle of flooding issues.

Also, I apologize in advance if these have all been rec'd out a hundred times before. I haven't had the chance to glance back over my flist to see what everyone else has done yet. I was going to do quotes/give more details/whatever, but coding was a bitch (and also I got lazy).

And on that note: HAPPY NEW YEAR, FLIST!

Dear Yuletide Writer,


Hi! Thanks so much in advance. I love every one of these fandoms and I'm really looking forward to whatever you write for me!

In terms of general things I like in fic, I'm pretty flexible as long as the story is well-written. I almost always lean towards het and canon pairings, but I also appreciate a good gen fic. My absolute favorite characters are almost always women. I love backstory and character studies. Whether I prefer gen/friendship or romance generally depends on the fandom, but I do tend towards shipping/romance. I'm a huge fan of slow burn UST, but I also really like smut as long as everything is consensual.

I like just about any genre, and I think the most important thing to me in fic is endings. I do admit that I like somewhat upbeat endings, although I also like well-done angst, things that make me feel. I think my very favorite category would be at least hopeful whenever appropriate, but as long as the ending fits the story, I'm happy. A good ending will stand out and stay with me, make the story really memorable.

With that said: on to the requests!

Happy Yuletide! And thanks again :)
