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.
