dear chocolatier!

HELLO LOVELY CHOCOLATIER. You have great taste in things and I am excited to see what you come up with! I am totally okay with non-shippy (or non-explicit) fic/art as long as there's no interfering ship (e.g. Brad&Nate is totally fine instead of Brad/Nate, but Brad&Nate with unrequited Brad/Ray isn't what I'm here for).

In general I love trust themes, rivals who respect each other's [skill or value or passion or whatever], competence, characters determined to Do The Right Thing however hard it is. I LOVE canon, boring/mundane settings (like an office or classroom) and angst or slice of life rather than fluff/schmoop, and I'm more into suggestion than very introspective narration/POV. If you like OPOV, go for it :D I don't need a happy ending though I'd prefer it didn't end with either half of the ship feeling passive towards each other; I am 10000% here for furious, heart-breaking breakups where they're both still crazy about each other, for instance. I'm happy with first time or established relationship or exes in love, but I'd prefer it wasn't married bliss--learning to be together, dealing with some sort of conflict, that sort of thing, if they're already a couple. General dislikes: absolutely no teacher/student (YOI aside), nothing precious about best friends, no ABO, and no soulmates or love at first sight, nothing reliant on miscommunication, please.

For art, I'm more into setting than portraits--as quick a sketch as you like, I generally love trees/water/buildings, interesting POVs, muted/ugly colourschemes, light, weather. As with fic, canon settings are wonderful but so are AUs! Whatever works for you I will be delighted with :DD

In general, I'd rather you wrote/arted something you feel like doing, so as long as it's not about evil women, please go ahead and ignore all my likes/dislikes and do what you want with my ships <3 I seem to have spent the whole letter ahead talking about what I love in the canon of the ship more than providing actual prompts, so really whatever you do with that information is fine by me :D Thank you sooooo much, dear chocolatier!

Voices wake us, and we drown
Sam/Dean, 5,700 words, NC-17 | AO3
Something's following.

A/N: written for quickreaver for spn_j2_xmas. I'm so sorry this is so late but HAPPY LATE HOLIDAYS QUICKREAVER! I hope you enjoy this, it was a lot of fun to write. I took your likes and wrote the fic I have been wanting to for a while, inspired by It Follows (though I strongly suggest you don't follow the link yet if you don't already know the premise). THANK YOU to glovered for coaxing me through finishing this, and to cherie_morte for capslocking me into starting it!

Dear Yuletide writer 2016 version 0.5

HELLO DEAR YULETIDE WRITER. First off, thank you for signing up to write me fic, ilu and I am going to be overjoyed with anything you write! If there is something you badly want to write for my fandoms, please go ahead and do just that, feel free to ignore everything I'm about to say. For guidance: in general I am into trust more than romance, canon or mundane moods over outrageous fluff, and environmental angst more than relationship drama. I like established relationships, choices with consequences, begrudingly respectful enemies falling in love, distant POV character voices, and celebrations of each other's awesomeness! Things I don't like: jealousy, will-they-won't-they, "If you hurt my friend I'll kill you" or any similar condescension, anything that relies on fate (soulmates, amnesia, reincarnation), misunderstandings as a central plot point, anything AT ALL about sex work that isn't sex work positive, coffeeshops! I'll come back with prompts (by October 13th) but please ignore them at will, I'm excited to see what you come up with.

iZombie :: Liv, Ravi, Clive, Major
I didn't expect to like this show and then I did! A lot! I LOVE Liv's relationship with each of Ravi, Clive, and Major, and I'd love to see something with any or all of them. I'd love to see more from Liv's POV on her handling of a new personality every meal, I'd LOVE something grimmer and more dystopican than the show gives us, and I'd love something that enjoys the same sly humour as the show does. Please nothing about Liv and Peyton's Glorious Lifelong (Best) Friendship Omg, the show makes me disbelieve it, but if you're feeling a Peyton character study then sign me up! Also--I'm British but I moved to the US 2 years ago, and if you can do justice to exploring or joking about Ravi being British in the US, take it away :DDDD

Captive Prince :: Damon, Laurent
Urgh, let's spend a second thinking about ENEMIES WHO RESPECT EACH OTHER EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T WANT TO *___________* I'd love to see something that takes the series happy ending and makes it less happy--whether that's the difficulties of bringing the kingdoms together, troubles navigating their relationship (because of ideological or politically untenable differences, NOT relationship misunderstandings), or other kingdoms causing problems that cause problems or difficulties between them. It was super nice to see them being happy together in the books but ahhh I'd love to see them having to fight to maintain a relationship. I'm not really about Auguste lives!AUs because so much of Laurent's character is founded on the way he died; tell me about how they cope with the shitty circumstances they're given.

Prompts:

Brooklyn Nine-Nine :: Rosa, Gina, Holt, Jake
This show makes me so happy. I love how much they all love each other, how they accommodate each others' weirdness and how they think about what each other would be good at or comfortable with. Fic I'd love: anything where they're all friends, any kind of case, any kind of office scenario, any kind of ridiculous personal disaster someone (not limited to these four characters, they're just four of my favourites) has and needs dealt with by everyone, anything ensembley at all. I ship Rosa/Gina harder than anything and I'd love if you incorporated that but honestly I'd be delighted if you just featured them in the same story ^_^

Prompts:
1.

His Dark Materials :: Lyra, Will
God, this is one of the first books that ever made me rip my heart out over how much they love each other and it STILL HURTS TO THINK ABOUT. I love watching Lyra grow into an adult, I love that Will's motivations change with his love for Lyra, I love that they're 100% on each other's side even when they can't be by each other's side. I didn't expect assignments to go out quite so quickly and this was a last-minute pick for me (I meant to read the books again first /o\) but I'd love to see something about how they cope without the other, how they came to understand each other or how they react to seeing the other again. The details of how being in the same world happens aren't super important to me, so if you want to go even further down the line--say, after they've met again but before they're back together--I'd love to see that, too.

collected pieces

It occurred to me that I haven't posted about the various fics and podfics I've written or been given in the last couple of months.

Things by me!
Rosa the Vampire Detective -- Brooklyn 99, 1,500 words, PG, gen. Rosa shares an important life detail with the squad. | This was my Yuletide and as usual it was written up to the wire but I feel pretty good about it. Also, for the record, I decided I wanted to write vampire!Rosa LONG BEFORE Gina mentioned it in canon, so I win and should obviously be hired as a show writer.

Peralta, P.I. -- Brooklyn 99, 1,100 words, PG, gen (at the moment). The name's Peralta. Jake Peralta. Private Investigator. | I'm writing the next part of three total right now. I love writing b99.

Things by other people!
A Novel Without Romance by kyrieanne -- Jane the Virgin, 1,300 words, G, gen. | Lovely Jane introspection.

taking steps in my direction by mardia -- Jane the Virgin, 1,400 words, R, Rafael/Jane. Jane’s never been comfortable admitting to herself just how much she enjoys looking at Rafael. | This is how you write Jane nearly, but not quite, sleeping with Rafael.

The Leslie Knope Diaries by Missy -- Parks and Rec, 888 words, PG, gen. In which Leslie Knope is an honest-to-gosh princess who must deal with the art of waving to large crowds, the stonewalling of her royal advisors, and the notion that Genovia might me more beautiful than Pawnee. | If I could show you a video of my face when I read this the first time, I would. This is everything I have ever wanted from a Leslie fic. E V E R Y T H I N G.

Gina Baby by glovered -- podfic, Brooklyn 99, 24:15, PG, gen. “And finally," says Holt from the front of the briefing room. "I understand there is an anonymous holiday gift circle taking place. Technically it is beyond my power to stop this from happening. I, of course, will not be participating.”

"Pip pip!" says Gina. | Sarah podficced the Yuletide fic I wrote last year AND SHE DID THE VOICES. She does Amy exactly, exactlyyyy as I imagined, but also, listen to Gina, Jake, Rosa, HOLT omg, and also, everyone else, who are also perfect. I am so happy I don't know what to do. Listen and delight.

*

I'm obsessed with this Brad/Nate vid at the moment and I'm torn trying to stop myself watching it and/or the show again, and actually writing my feelings into fic. I'm also 300 words from finishing a Sam/Dean fic that after an embarrassing amount of consulting, I think might be actually done. Or approaching done. Productivity is great. So is life in pyjamas, and my nails are best of all. spnspringfling signups open on Friday!

Yuletide 2015

Dearest writer, I love you, thank you for being the best person to ever exist. I am so excited to read whichever fic you decide to write for me! If there's something you're super into writing already, please go ahead--I'd much rather you have fun than worry about what I'm going to like, and if you want to experiment with a style then please do! I am listening to Christmas carols right now even though it's only the start of November and I hope you are feeling as excited about the season as I am :)

In general I am much much more into building and maintaining trust than romances! I love canon settings but if you're also into mundane AUs (offices, supermarkets, 3 jobs at once AUs) then I love to read those, too. I'm usually not super into fluff but since it's Christmas, go right ahead and rot my teeth :D I like established relationships, choices with consequences, distant POV character voices, and celebrations of each other's awesomeness! Things I generally don't like: jealousy, will-they-won't-they (exception: Malcolm and Reese, incest changes everything :3), anything that relies on fate (soulmates, amnesia, reincarnation), misunderstandings as a central plot point, anything not sex work-positive, coffeeshops. I'm listing prompts but please do ignore at will, I'm just excited to see what you come up with!

Malcolm in the Middle :: Malcolm, Reese
Urgh, god. I discovered this show in July and my god I don't know how to deal with how hard I ship Malcolm/Reese WHAT DOES A PERSON DO WITH ALL THESE FEELINGS PLEASE HELP. I love that they're both such complete fucking dicks and are so unbearably loyal to each other and the rest of the family in their own very particular ways, I LOVE Malcolm's helplessness when he thinks about how much he loves Reese even though he doesn't like him particularly much and Reese's unquestioning "urgh now I have to kill everyone for being jerks to Malcolm" and can I tell you how much I don't know how to cope with the fact that the entire show finishes with the two of them on the phone talking about how much they miss each other (paraphrased but whatever) and OH HOW I LOVE THIS SHIP. Relatedly: amazing family dynamic that doesn't rely on excluding the boys' friends, not ever; the slow reveal of Dewey's genius to the viewer and to the family; Francis's utter failiness; the sheer amount Hal and Lois love each other; their ridiculous wonderful house; the many opportunities for Malcolm and Reese to share a bed.

So!! Incest is absolutely not required, I would be delighted with fic about the seven of them plus Stevie, Piami, all the other parents and also anyone else who has ever featured. Gen, close character study of any one of Malcolm or his brothers, anything. I would love if it featured Malcolm and Reese both but that is certainly not required! I really just want a celebration of all their liking or love for each other and their lives--however you want to do that is up to you :)

Prompts:
1. Malcolm realises he wants to be those kind of brothers and accidentally says so to Reese in the same moment.
2. Malcolm comes home for the weekend. Reese hasn't changed.
3. Francis, Reese, Malcolm and Dewey decide Jamie needs teaching a few things about their parents.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine :: Rosa, Gina
God, I love this show so much, writer. I love it so much. I love that literally every character is a woman, a person of colour, and/or queer, and that the two remaining old white men are explicitly disregarded; I love that Rosa and Amy aren't Latina stereotypes; I love that the show apologises for shit it gets wrong; I love that they all respect each other and their relationships and that it's totally, explicitly okay to date and sleep with each other when other relationships within the 99s have ended. I LOVE IT.

So I asked for Rosa and Gina because I ship them super horribly hard, but really I just wanted to make sure that one of them featured! I would be really happy with precinct ensemble fic, something specific to either Rosa or Gina, or to either one of them! (Including Rosa's relationship with Marcus or Gina's with Boyle or any of her many other young fellows.) This is also a fandom I would be super happy to see them all in space in period dress with tentacles, if the urge so takes you! I love the whole dynamic of the show and every single character and would be delighted with anything that celebrates that.

Prompts:
1. Breaking up is the worst. Rosa wants to know who broke Gina's heart. No reason. The axe is just for show.
2. Undercover weddings. Any weddings. Whoever wants to get fake weddinged, that's fine. Rosa and Jake can handle a fake wedding. Honest.
3. It's Christmas Day and everyone's trapped in the office. No one is pleased.


Parks and Recreation :: Leslie
Where to begin with how wonderful Leslie is and what I love about her. Suffice it to say that I watched the very last episode with my girlfriend, followed by the very first episode with a friend who had never seen it before, and spent the entirety of both in floods of tears. I love Leslie's positivity, her love for Pawnee, her perseverance and her determination that everyone she works with will love each other and their jobs. I would be overjoyed with anything Leslie.

Prompts:
1. PRESIDENT LESLIE KNOPE or PRESIDENT ELECT LESLIE KNOPE or SOON TO MAYBE BE PRESIDENT LESLIE KNOPE
2. Leslie and Ron, friends for life. Despite what's about to happen.
3. It's Galentine's Day and Leslie, inexplicably, is not around. The rest of the girls take the reins.
4. LESLIE KNOPE, ACCIDENTAL ASTRONAUT, SUDDEN PRINCESS OF GENOVIA, EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO LEARN HOW TO DO SPACE TOO COME ON YOU GUYS, IT'S MARS! IT'LL BE FUN!


Jane the Virgin :: Jane
I did not expect to like this show and started it to have something on in the background while grading. Three days later, no more show left, all the grading still to do, EVERYONE IN THE WORLD still to convince to watch it despite the ridiculous (AND WONDERFUL!) premise. I am so into Jane's everything, the relationship between her and Xo and her abuela is the best thing on television, and I dearly love what they have done with Rogelio. Every character's respect for every other character is really pleasing to watch and I love the social justice aspects of the show--I cried at yes, this really happens. #immigrationreform. I like that (up to where I am in canon right now) both boys have vastly respected her decisions and that they aren't overly antagonistic towards each other in practice. I am way more into her romantic relationship with Rafael than with Michael but I very much enjoy her friendship with Michael. Do not in any way feel tied to just writing about Jane! I really enjoy the way she is written and I would love if you explored something about her decisions and relationships, but if you're more into a Petra character study, go right ahead.

Prompts:
1. Rogelio offers to babysit. Jane tags along.
2. The three ladies join a class together. Michael, Rafael, and Rogelio get roped in.
3. *objectifies the holy fuck out of Rafael* (do what you will with that, dear author!)

THANK YOU!!! ♥♥♥♥♥
