Dear Yuletide Writer,
Hello! Thank you for writing a story for me. It's so exciting that we're both interested in one of these tiny fandoms! This will be, gosh, my fourth year doing Yuletide, and writing my Yuletide assignment has come to be one of the highlights of the year for me. I hope you have just as much fun filling my prompt this year. I'm writing this letter just to give you some more ideas if you want them--and because I love this opportunity to ramble on about the small fandoms of my heart--and I hope you get some inspiration out of it if that's what you're looking for. But please, feel free to ignore all this and just write a story that you like and enjoy writing. I will seriously be so thrilled to read anything about the characters I requested.
My requests were these:
( Arsène Lupin - Maurice Leblanc (Narrator)Collapse )
( Oz - L. Frank Baum (Shaggy Man)Collapse )
( Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (Ricky Owens/Professor Pericles)Collapse )
What else do I like, in general? I like lots of things! I'm a big fan of fanfic that really draws on canon, pastiching the voice of the source material or expanding on little details from canon. I like a story with a plot, but I also like short pieces, and I don't mind stories where nothing really happens--I'm a big fan of stories that are mostly just talking. (Like, I love Asimov, haha.) I like character studies, vignettes, missing scenes, whatever. I like to find out interesting little details about even the most mundane topics. I like adventure, dialogue, humor, hurt/comfort, language, mystery, science, slice-of-life, trivia, UST, wordplay, &c.
I'm not religious, but I do celebrate Christmas--I love the decorating, the carols, the shopping, the spirit of good will... So I would not object to a Christmastime-themed story if you wanted to write one.
I'm not really interested in reading explicit sex. I'm not a big fan of character death, characters having children, or transplant AUs--basically, I like it when the status quo remains more or less intact.
If you're looking for more information about me, I don't maintain much of a presence of LiveJournal or Dreamwidth, but I'm reasonably active on tumblr. There's also my account at the AO3, and I keep my fanfic bookmarks (and general bookmarks) on Pinboard. Feel free to poke around.
Optional details are, of course, optional. Most of all I hope you have a good time writing a story that you like, and I'm sure I'll love it too! Whatever you come up with, it will be so great to read a story in any of these fandoms. Thanks again, and happy Yuletide!
