Hi Yuletide author!

Thank you for signing up to write one of my fandoms. I can pretty much guarantee that I'll love whatever you write, so if you've got a brilliant idea that you just love and *have* to write, feel free to do it. If you're like me and find yourself staring at a blank screen really wanting to write but not knowing where to start, hopefully this will help.

Generally I love hurt/comfort, mild angst, positive endings, friendship stories, verbal humour, mild teasing, AUs, future fic, stuff set before the show started, slash/femslash, developing relationships, gen/friendship, caring and affection, queer communities, kid fic, kittens and puppies, bookshops.

I don’t like humiliation, embarrassment, people being made to look stupid, outright humour stories, excessive violence, PWP, het.

For the specific fandoms:

1. Imagine Me And You

I'd love to see Lucy introducing Rachel to her friends, or Rachel becoming part of the lesbian community around her. Or a lazy Sunday with the two of them doing nothing much - maybe visiting Lucy's mother?

Rachel and Lucy are my favourite characters in the film - I'm less interested in Hector - and I'd love to see the different ways they're part of the gay community. Does Rachel identify as bisexual or lesbian or something else? What's difficult for the two of them about being together (within their relationship more than external homophobia)? What about Rachel's sister, how does she relate to Lucy?

2. Tipping the Velvet

I'd love to know more about Florence - what she does, her lesbian community and friends, her relationship with her dead friend and the baby. I prefer book fandom, where Florence is more embedded in the lesbian community than Nan, but I love TV canon as well. Alternatively, something about Nan rebuilding her relationship with her family after the end of the book/series, or what happens next for one or both of them

I like Florence the best because she's a feminist and she works hard and she's tired, and then she gets the girl at the end. I like that both she and Nan identify as lesbian. I like Nan because of her inner toughness that carries her through the book/series, and that she gets her happy ending. I'd really prefer you didn't break the two of them up.

3. I Capture the Castle

I'd love to see Cassie once she grows up - what she does, who she becomes. I feel like the book is her as defined by the men around her, I'd love to see who she is without them. How does she change as society changes as she gets older? does she get married, have a family, become a force for social change, fall for a girl...

I think Cassie makes the book interesting because she's so young that she doesn't see or understand some things, but as she grows up that can change. She really lends herself to having future fic written about her, I think, because she's just at the point where she's starting to figure out and become who she is. I love stories about girls who fall in love with girls, so if you write Cassie in a lesbian relationship, I'll love you forever, but gen is good too. I'd prefer not to see her paired with any of the men in the book

4. Garth Nix's old Kingdom

I'd like to see Ellimere and Lirael save the world together somehow. Or bonding over their roles, meeting each other, how do they get along (or not). Alternatively, something about Ellimere's perspective during the second two books, or Lirael going home to the Clair as a hero

I love, love, love these books, especially Lirael, the character and the book. I like that the main characters are almost all female and are treated equally to the male characters, that they take on the rescues and run the kingdom and predict the future and try to change the world and succeed even though it hurts them. I love that, especially in the second two books, there’s no romantic subplot, and that friendships and family are so important.

I’d love something that picks up after the last book, looking at how Lirael becomes part of the family she never knew about, and how Ellimere deals with the Clair and her new aunt. I love Ryelle and Sanar as individuals and as twins, and I’d love something with the four of them together as friends and family and doing something that young women would do, if you want to include the two of them. Maybe something that deals with what Lirael in particular lost in the last battle, both physically and emotionally.

1. Phew, have mostly survived Christmas (though murder of my father is still a possibility - at least going to jail would give me more time to write!)

2. Got to skip =220 on my flist and gave up. Anything amazing that was posted before then, I'll just have to find out about through other means.

3. Anonymous wrote this is not my dream, sister for me for [ profile] yuletide. It's Thoughtcrimes,gen Freya and Brendan, and it's fab. It's all about personal history, and where and what we come from, and how it makes us who we are, and how that's different from who we thought we were. And it has an amazing, strong bond between Freya and Brendan, and Freya being awesome and saving them, and I can't wait to find out who wrote it, so I can go find out if we have any other fandoms in common.

4. All the fic is posted now for [ profile] sga_santa and [ profile] yuletide, including mine for both, so if you'd like to have a go at guessing, I offer fic in return. For [ profile] sga_santa, I wrote a slash story that wasn't John/Rodney, and really, if you can't guess that I wrote it, the only excuse I'll accept is that you didn't *read* it, cos I wrote it to fit into one of my existing universes, and I don't think it could be mroe obviously me if I'd tried. For [ profile] yuletide, I wrote for one of the fandoms I asked for, gen friendship fic. I'm not sure if it's guessable or not.

5. I want someone to invent a device that you can attach to your head and have pull out your thoughts into written form. Becasue I have my [ profile] sg_flyboys fic in my head, but getting it onto paper is not going well.

Dear yuletide author (and possibly sg1-jubilee author),

Thank you for writing for me! I'm sorry I haven't commented yet, but I haven't had time at a computer to read the fic you wrote for me yet. Hopefully I will in the next couple of days-i can't wait to see what you wrote for me!

Love, [ profile] bluflamingo

I'll be away on reveal day (computer = big no no at my parents' over Xmas) but I'll be sneaking a look at my story on the 26th when I'm at work (I knew there had to be a perk to working boxing day), so I promise to comment then. Thank you for writing for me, and I can't wait to see what you wrote!
