Hello wonderful Yuletide writer!
First of all thank you. I hope you've read through our match, whatever fandom it is that brings us together and immediately felt your head bouncing around with ideas. If not or just to help you along your way then here's a few of my thoughts on fic: I like simple slice-of-life fics, those ordinary moments where you can explore a characters thoughts and feelings. I love seeing my characters grow, what makes them tick, who they are and getting inside of their heads.
I love tension and if you're going for a pairing, I love all that UST, touches of angst and all that good stuff. My rule of thumb tends to be as long as you can make a pairing work and believable, het/slash/threesomes/various pairings, I'll pretty much love it. I'm not a fan of rape or noncon, and if you're wanting to include sex, that's all fine and dandy, but I'm not looking for just straight up porn here either. I like some plot with my getting it on, and if the characters are too young and it's unlikely, I'd really prefer to keep it to just straight up kissing and longing along with innocence/discovery.
If you're not a pairing fan, I still love gen to itty bitty pieces. What it all boils down to is that I love these characters and the worlds that they inhabit, and I'm sure anything you can come up with will have me bowing down to you in gratitude for writing it.
Peter Pan - J.M. Barrie.
Peter Pan is a story that will never be overdone or grow old and I adore every one of its incarnations, so whilst I chose the book for this particular request know that I adore that, through to Hook, the movie 2003 version, all of it. Ideally what I would love to see is a modern re-telling or AU of the tale, the characters being brought into the present and seeing how that would affect their own individual tales and relationships with each other. Maybe Bell/Tink is Peter's over protective best friend in this scenario, Peter himself a loner or an orphan - let your imagination run wild and create the tale anew.
Misfits has been my happy place recently and although the dynamics have changed and I miss Nathan terribly, who is this new guy and what are they playing at? - it is still a wonderful show. What I would love to see is a version of season three where maybe the group go to rescue Nathan from jail. Or even just some of Nathan's hijinks and challenges over in Las Vegas, is he trying to make his own way out of jail or already out and onto new and bigger things? On the other end of the spectrum, Alisha and Simon are adorable together and I'd love to see something exploring their more quiet moments in getting to know each other, maybe with some banter from the rest thrown in for good measure. Feel free to include Kelly and Curtis too!
Delirium - Lauren Oliver
This book is something I could breathe in, I adore the writing and the characters that much. The book, although it's soon to be continued, left us with quite a cliff hanger and it would make me happy to see any of the characters and the what if's that now surround them. Maybe Grace when she's older and about to go through with the procedure herself, what are her thoughts on love as a disease? Does she agree with it, does she have a secret love of her own that she'd like to shelter? Or Hana and her life after the procedure? Alex and how he fell in love with Lena and took a chance to risk everything? Explore any of these characters and this wonderful book and I will be extremely happy.
I hope that's enough to hit you with some kind of an idea and whilst I would love to see any of the above please don't let my rambling stifle your creativity. If you've come up with an amazing idea or want to include something else entirely then please go for it. This is Yuletide and it's meant to be fun and I am sure whatever you can come up with will be brilliant. Happy Yuletide and I'll see you on the 25th.
