I want to apologize for being a little late getting the letter open, but I've been busy getting married, so catching up now.
Optional details are, of course, optional - but I'm one of the people who always wants MOAR INFO on what you want, so I provide plenty.
Stories don’t need to be super sappy and sugary/fluffy, but please don’t get all grim and dark. Bittersweet can work if there are hopeful tinges.
I like humor, and I don't think I do a good job of writing it - sparkling snappy dialogue always works! (Especially if you are here to fulfill my Heyer request!)
Holiday-themed is always enjoyed if that’s where the story takes you, but not required.
I generally prefer het or gen. I'd rather not have too-explicit sex for Yuletide, but romance is always in - ESPECIALLY if you're going a holiday route because I love Christmas and mistletoe. The "fade to black" or implied sex is fine, or making out.
I'm a fan of AU, but prefer canon-divergence or "what-if" scenarios, rather than "all the characters are at boarding school together" types (Unless they ARE all at boarding school together...)
Stories where problems are solved by feminine insight/intuition rock! I think pretty much all of my prompts are good for the Misses Clause challenge if you're into that.
I participate in the Yuletide Madness Drabble Initiative, and I love to recieve drabbles as well!
If you know more than one of the requested fandoms, or some of my other fandoms (particularly Nancy Drew, Miss Marple, or And Then There Were None, which I nominated and then forgot to request), I love crossovers. But only if you like to write them!
Please no explicit violence/gore (nothing higher than what already exists in a canon) and no sexual violence. I'd also prefer you avoid major (i.e. nominated) character death.
On to the specific stuff. Prompts are in no particular order.
( Eleanor and Park, The Nonesuch, Murder on the Orient Express, The Scoop, Vorkosigan Saga )
I hope all this helps. And just remember, whatever you write, I am going to enjoy - because it's going to be good and it's going to be a gift just for me.
