Yuletide

Hi, Yuletide author!

I am very excited for this year's Yuletide...of course, I suppose I am every year, but I'm even more excited because this year YOU are my author! :D

I am not adding much to this letter, but let me say I'm very much interested in gen unless otherwise noted. I definitely don't want anything about a PG-13 kind of rating. I'm going to be pretty much okay with whatever you write. I love AU kind of things, and I love imagining what happens to characters beyond the stories we already know. The future is very interesting to me.

Whatever emotions you choose to evoke, I don't mind. I like to laugh or cry, and even better if I can do both at the same time.

Most of all, write something you will enjoy, too, because I'll probably enjoy it that much more if you do, too. :)

At any rate, here are my signups:

Fandom: Animorphs
Characters: Any
Details: I'm cool with any of the main six characters (and any other characters, but would prefer some combination of the main six - I didn't fill out the character section because it only lets me pick four). My favorites are Ax and Marco, but I love them all.

I'd love to see some post-54 stuff where they actually survive, or at least, someone actually survives. I'm fine with Rachel being dead (though I won't say no if she is somehow alive!), but I'd just...like to see something past "Ram the Blade Ship," you know?

If you'd prefer to do something in series, that's fine as well. I'd especially love something in the middle of the series - around book 15 was where I really got into the series as a kid and I tapered off somewhere around 35, though I've read all of them. :)


Fandom:The Fault in our Stars
Characters: Hazel, Isaac, Gus
Details: I'd love to see a post book Hazel/Isaac, though not too quickly after Gus's death. Friendship is fine, but I'd hate to think that just because Gus died that Hazel went back to the Hazel of before that didn't do very much except grumble about support group, go to school when she felt well enough, and watch Top Model.

I'd also take any missing moments between Hazel and Gus.

And anything with Hazel, really.

I guess I'm not very picky here is what I'm trying to say.
Other notes: I'm definitely a Nerdfighter, so if you want to include any of those kind of references, don't worry. I will get them, and they will be awesome. DFTBA! :D


Fandom: Full House
Characters: Any
Details: What happens in this house after the kids all grow up? Do the guys (+ Aunt Becky) still live together? If they don't, how is that going? How does Danny deal with the house all to himself?

I'd also take something from non-nominated characters. It'd be especially interesting to see Jodi Sweetin's real life issues applied to Steph, I think. The Full House was always so idyllic, despite the beginnings of death by drunk driver, so it'd be interesting to see that changed.

Oh, and I'm a huge fan of the blog Full House Reviewed, so if you know that, I totally don't mind if you go that direction with it. Especially the idea that Tanners and co are so self-centered and regularly use public events as a forum to discuss their troubles and fight about things. Or if you want to get weird and have, say, the sappy lesson-learned music actually play in-universe. Or anything.

Sorry I didn't get this out sooner! I am bad a DYA letters. :( But I hope you have a great time writing a story for me! I know that I am very excited to write my story, and I can't wait to read what you write for me! Thank you! You rock. :)

In addition to what's below, I ADORE crossovers. If you want to include Doctor Who, Harry Potter, or Buffy with any of these (and House with Dead Poets Society would be fabulous), that would be, well, even more awesome. I could see Alaska hanging out with Eleven, Dawn ending up with the Sunnydale crew, Remus Lupin meeting Neil while he's running away...or even a crossover between two things that are below.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave anon comments to ask anything if I left any details out you want to know.

Thank you again!!

Baby-Sitters Club - Ann M. Martin
Dawn Schafer


Dawn is my favorite BSC character. Really, anything you want to do with her is great - whether it's her time in CA (feel free to include California Diaries characters - Ducky is my favorite there - if you want to go that route) or CT or how hard it is to have two lives at opposite sides of the country, in a more "real" way than the books manage. Maybe how the double life affected her later - into high school, college, etc.

The only thing I can think that I didn't include originally was the fact that I don't mind what you do with this, relationship-wise. Gen, het, or femslash is absolutely fine. Wherever the wind takes you :)

Dead Poets Society (1989)
Neil Perry


I ask every year, but I want a story where Neil doesn't go through with it (maybe he would have, but his parents catch him sooner?). But I want it to still be angsty.

If you can't do that, any story exploring Neil & Keating (who I notice wasn't nominated - I didn't think to check when I saw this had already been nominated!) 's relationship (in a non-sexual way) would be fabulous as well.

Or, well, really anything with these characters. I really have wanted to know more about all of them since I first saw that movie.


I could go on and on about what I want this story to be, but I really just want to see him deal with his pain another way. Does he spiral out of control? Drugs? Alcohol? Does he rebel more? Does he go to med school? Does he become James Wilson and work at a hospital in New Jersey? There are just so many ways his life could have gone, and while I'm glad the movie ended the way it did, I guess I've just always wondered and I've always wanted to see where he could have gone.

Looking for Alaska - John Green
Alaska Young, Miles "Pudge" Halter, Chip "The Colonel" Martin


Something is different. The story is so delicately and perfectly crafted that I'm not as interested in before or after the book (though background into Alaska or Colonel would be fabulous), but the idea that one little change in their lives could have put it on a vastly different path is fascinating.


That was a weird way to put that, but I can't really think of much more to say. I love the Alaska/Miles relationship, a lot, and I just really wonder how the story could have gone differently. Looking at my Dead Poets Society signup, I guess I just really am fascinated by how much a suicide (or death, since we don't know for sure in Alaska's case) changes a life and how things could have happened differently, just how little things can effect more. I am really not saying this very well.

A new laptop. I may get one. Not sure.

(Also, $50 would be pretty sweet.)

Dear Yuletide Writer,

letter )
sarahjane: (Doctor Who - TARDIS vroom)
Mostly about the Eleventh Hour, one vague reference to the basic plot of Episode Seven, some thoughts on the future of Series 5 based on what we learn in The Eleventh Hour (no spoilers unless my speculation is right), and a line of squee about the new trailer. )

I probably have more to say...but hey, I plan on watching it at least twice more before the next episode. If I think of something else, I can post again.

I really, really need some Eleven and/or Amy icons. :)

Friends only! [I had a banner here, but apparently it died.]

If you want to add me, by all means, go ahead! I love new friends. :)
