For this Yuletide, I wrote 5 stories (assignment and 4 pinch hits) for the main collection and 4 stories for Madness.

Games Aren't Always Fun is a Dungeons and Dragons Cartoon fic, Eric-centric. I got a cool prompt and the recipient loved it, so everyone was happy. I wanted to do something a little shippier for it, but it just didn't flow that way.

Just A Quiet House Party is a Hercule Poirot and Captain America crossover, likely AU. Of course Captain Hastings, he reads about the exploits of Captain America... I enjoyed doing a Poirot crossover (why I jumped on it) and the recipient enjoyed it.

Journey to A New World is a Nantucket fanfic focused on Kashtiliash and Kathryn Hollard. I'm afraid the recipient wasn't too shocked to find out I wrote it...because I've written all the fic in the Archive for this pair. But they loved it and I enjoyed it and oh no, please don't make me read the book again...

Dearer Than Any Blood Sister is a Gone With The Wind fic that's Melanie-intropection and a little defense of Scarlett. The recipient enjoyed it, and I enjoyed writing on a pretty wide-open prompt.

Unwritten is a Back to the Future fanfic that imagines the impact the time travel had on Marty and his decisions. I enjoyed writing it, the recipient liked it, and I think of the 5, it has been the most popular.

I really appreciated that there wasn't a repeat of last year, where the recipient never acknowledged the story.

For Madness:

Fix The Future is a Back to the Future drabble - Biff Tannen is running for President... look, I think after this year, a little comic relief is warranted and this one appears to have gone over well.

Queen of Babylon is a Nantucket drabble about the Islander sushi bar.

What Morning Will Bring is a DDC drabble.

Relief is a Penric double drabble about Penric's issues with his new occupant.

 I got a Vorkosigan Saga story - which is nice, because probably the last year they'll be YT-eligible.

 It's called Midwinter Unfair, and it falls in the "Barrayaran social romp" category, featuring Ivan Xav and Tej AND Duv and Delia.

 This year I wrote 5 stories for the main collection (my assigment and 4 pinch hits) and 4 stories for Madness, so until I can reveal them, enjoy this one!

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!
