desertvixen: (optional details are optional)
Sorry this wasn't up earlier, but I'm preparing to move and having a bad reaction to dust and dead bugs in my garage.

This is Yuletide Number Nine!  I'm really excited and I know we're both going to have fun with it.

General writing stuff can be found here.

I'll love whatever you write for me, so don't feel bad if we didn't match on one of my repeat requests.  All of my requests excite me!

I'm totally down for crossovers between fandoms requested, or with Poirot, Marple, etc.  On the Scoop one, I wouldn't be averse to working in the Queens of Crime deal.

Onto the specifics:

 

My letter, let me show you.... )

 

Good luck and good writing!

Time flies when we're having fun.  This will be my EIGHTH Yuletide, and I look forward to it every year.

 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.

General wants/DNWs:

 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.

Good writing!

First off, thank you for agreeing to do this!  I love getting (and giving) stories, and this is my seventh Yuletide.  I hope the assignment doesn't give you TOO many fits.

Warning: I am one of the long letter-writers. 

Optional details are optional, but I tend to be one of the people who always wants MORE information, so I provide plenty for you.  Also, in case this isn't enough, previous letters can be found under the "dear yuletide writer" tag.  Also of interest may be my "recs" tag, and of course on AO3 you can see the stuff I’ve written.

General wants/don't wants: 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!  Holiday-themed is fine 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.

For the mystery-related prompts, I am a huge fan of "seemingly unrelated group of people trapped somewhere and discover they a) have something in common and b) can't just leave" - see Clue, see And Then There Were None.

The good news is that last year’s author wrote my long-standing “really really really want” story, so this year’s prompts are a little newer.

If you're down for the Misses Clause challenge, all of my prompts/requests should be good for you!

On to the requests!

And Then There Were None (play), The Scoop, Twilight Zone, The Nonesuch )

Good luck!

Dear Yuletide Writer,

 First off, thank you for agreeing to do this!  I love getting (and giving) stories, and this is my sixth Yuletide.  I hope the assignment doesn't give you TOO many fits.

 ... I have been a good girl this year.

General things: Stories don’t need to be super sappy and sugary , but please don’t get all grim and dark.  Bittersweet can work, as long as there are hopeful tinges.  Holiday-themed is fine if that’s where the story takes you.  I prefer het or gen on the fandoms listed.  I am deployed to Afghanistan this year, so very much looking forward to Yuletide as pretty much the only part of my Christmas-time celebration that's not getting messed up.

Have fun writing whichever one we match on, and I know I'll have fun reading it!

Nancy Drew, Miss Marple, Miss Scarlet, and Patience Chartley walk into Yuletide... )
