Dear Yulewriter, 2016 Edition

::blows dust off everything::

Hello, tidings, thank you for writing!

I am very much about optional details are optional, and I am very bad about, uh, well, prompting. I'm more of a "hey, I like this" without too much details. But! I am very easy to please.

My one thing is that, around the holidays, I'm more inclined towards lighthearted, slice of life, happy endings stories than ones that dig into the dark bits of the canon or characters. That doesn't mean you have to shove them into an Ikea and pretend there's no shadows! I'd just rather read about the marker falling a little more on the good than the bad.

Fandoms are listed alphabetically.

Lucifer (TV)
[Lucifer, anyone]

I am just in love with everything about this. I've been sitting with the comics for years and love them dearly, so you're welcome to pull from there if you like, but don't feel like you have to do so if you're not familiar with it!

Mostly I love Lucifer -- the way Tom Ellis portrays such a wonderful mixture of vulnerability and bravado is perfection. So focusing on him would be welcome.

I'm open to just about any iteration -- gen, het, slash -- with any of the characters. I do love Lucifer and Chloe, and how he's changed because of her, even if he doesn't particularly know why. And I adore Trixie's adoration of Lucifer as well, and how uncomfortable but affectionate it make Lucifer.

I'm also very into the Big Picture storyline, the family melodrama mixed with the judeo-christian mythology and how it impacts the life on human-filled earth.

I am up to date with the show and will be throughout the fall, so you're welcome to write it as close to canon as you care to do so. I'd prefer no AUs, and if you're going with an AR I'm more into the fork-in-the-road kind of AR than the what-if-there-were-dragons sort. Have fun with it!

Possible Scenarios:

- Lucifer and the bemoaning of Christmas
- Lucifer and Amanadiel being bros, especially Amenadiel's older-brother poking at Lucifer, even though Amanadiel would be younger, right?
- Lucifer doing nearly anything with Trixie, with or without adult supervision
- Lucifer, Amenadiel, and Mum dining with the Deckers

Fandom-specific dislikes: alternate universes, hating on Don outside of the usual Detective Douche business

Tone preference: a little closer to heaven than purgatory

Rivers of London
[Peter Grant, Beverly Brook]

I adore Beverly. She's a perfect cocktail of sexy, practical, and light-hearted, and I think Peter needs her, very much, in his life. I would love to see Peter's imperfect attempts to set up dates, or Bev's careful erosion of Peter's hang-ups as they build their relationship. Future-fic would also be lovely -- where do a wizard and a river end up in ten years, together? Do each of their mums badger them for grankids enough that it does happen?

Don't feel compelled to go holiday themed, though you're welcome to do so, but I would love to see a light-hearted, romancey vibe, and how Peter begins to adult more.

Possible Scenarios:

- Peter nutting up and asking Bev out on dates, and being rubbish at it, because the boy has rarely dated before
- Beverly being there, more and more, without Peter explicitly realizing how close and important she's become, until he gets a cluestick to the head
- Futurefic, ten years gone: does Bev even want to be a spouse? Does Peter, given how his parents' relationship turned out? What do wizard-river children end up being, other than awesome?
- Crossover with Law and Order (UK), because the negotiation of those two verses would be hilarity, and I adore the notion of Alicia Phillips being Peter's cousin who has very little time for his fanciful job.

Fandom-specific dislikes: Over-veneration of Nightengale, female characters interpreted as bitchy, slagging off Lesley, whinging too much about Lesley

Tone preference: More sharing a bedsit in the country than face-melting villains.

Stranger Things (TV)
[Nancy Wheeler, Jonathan Byers, Steve Harrington]

I have a thing about seeing what characters we meet as teenagers are like as adults, because the gulf between 17 and 35 is vast and terrible.

I very much want to see this OT3 ten or twenty years on. Maybe they meet up again at the high school reunion, and sparks fly? Maybe two of them got together, in college or something, and reel the third one back into their lives? Or, and this is something I itch for a bit, maybe in ten or twenty years they are all together (from whenever: high school, college, early twenties, wherever you find it most plausible and interesting) and they've figured out their lives together. What does that look like? Who are they, as adults? Who are they, with each other? What do they do? What curtains do they buy???

Ahem. Inquiring minds would love to know. You're welcome to pull the horror element in there if it works for you, but I'll be just as happy with a slice of life fic as an adventure story, if they're together (or getting together) as adults.

Possible scenarios:

- Patrick Henry HS invites you to our Twenty Year Reunion! RSVP with your Guest!
- College is the chance to get away. What do you do when you run into your HS gf/bf(s)? How have you changed? How have they? Is there still something there?
- Apartment hunting in the city for three people. "So you have...roommates?"
- They may have jobs, they may have an adult relationship, but the thrill of monster hunting....never dies.

Fandom-specific dislikes: alternate universes, alternate realities, bad-talking any of the OT3 except in relationship-relevant ways, Nancy portrayed as weak or in need of protection

Tone preference: More sleeping in the same room, less watching your best friend die.

YAGKYAS Secret Santa Letter

Dear YAGKYAS writer,

You rock for taking this challenge on! Thank you for participating. I love Rudy and Pappy, and especially Rudy/Pappy, and I would happily enjoy a gen or slash story that features them both prominently. I'm a complete sucker for domestic curtain!fic. What Rudy and Pappy's lives might be like after separating, or generally Stateside, would be joyful.

In short, I love Rudy Reyes. I'd love it if you could tell me a story about him.

I prefer realism very, very strongly to fantasy in this fandom, but I would be happy with any rating from gen to explicit. If you go the slash route, I like curtainfic and romantic comedy more than the angst and the drama. I love established relationship.

But at the end of the day, author!anon, I want to read the story that you best want to write, and you should feel free to take the liberties you need to accomplish that story. Have fun. Don't stress out! I'm going to love what you do, especially if you love what you do.

insert appropriate boyband song title here [2012 winter challenge index]

I don't have the brains to do one of those proper year-end round-ups; honestly all I have in my head right now is Jonny Lee Miller's glorious ass and half a dozen different IRS forms. But! Here are the things I received and the things I wrote for challenges, all but for the thing I wrote for Teen Wolf Holidays, which will be revealed on Saturday.

In YAGKYAS, I received the awesome Person of Interest fusion Changing Whatever It Is I'm Changing Into by the delightful waketosleep; it's Rudy and Pappy and it is glorious.

For Yuletide, I received two stories in The Eagle fandom. Then and Now by jeza_red follows Esca and Marcus all the way back from the wall, and works Esca through so many of his conflicts.

Four Seasons by amyfortuna was a Yuletide Madness treat following a year in their lives, lovely and quiet.


For YAGKYAS: vigilantibus aequitas subvenit for spirited_lizard. This one was a Nate/Brad crossover with The Good Wife, and I got super excited about this story; unfortunately, the flip side to running the challenge you're writing for is that you tend to be short on time, so there's thousands of words in my head that didn't make it into the story. Project for 2013? Anyway, I'm still pretty happy with it--I think it gets across most of the characterization points I was trying for in this AUish fusion.

For Happy Trekmas: Speedwork for nightshadow_t2. This was a fun Sulu/Chekov pwp, and I think [personal profile] perpetual_motion was amused at the amount of research I generated for a relatively short story. (It's important to know how big of a track you can put inside a starship, okay?)

I kind of overdosed on Yuletide, picking up seven pinch hits in addition to my assignment. I wrote ten thousand words in three days, at exactly the same time I was putting up YAGKYAS stories and triple-checking that everyone had a story. I don't know what I was thinking, but without [personal profile] perpetual_motion and [personal profile] samjohnsson the wonder betas I think I probably would still be desperately trying to correct the SPAG on all that nonsense. In no particular order:

Antes tarde do que nunca for crushing83; The Newsroom (US TV), Will McAvoy/Mackenzie McHale. This was delicious to write, all that Sorkin dialogue bubbling up in my head again.

Low Frequency Effects for psocoptera; Newsflesh Trilogy - Mira Grant, Georgia Mason/Shaun Mason/(Georgia Mason). I felt like I was kind of winging my way through this one, but I think I stuck the landing. Those two (three) are fucking complex to write, dudes. They don't make any sense, but they are mad crazy in love, so I figured as long as I could illustrate that and throw some snark in there it would be in line with the fandom.

the world goes on for Kass; Newsflesh Trilogy - Mira Grant, Georgia Mason/Shaun Mason. The second Newsflesh story I wrote, which I picked up as an Apocalypse Pinch Hit on Christmas Day. I actually kind of feel like the above story and this one are pretty closely linked together; if I wrote a third, they'd be sort of meditations on the Happily Ever After. (I'm not saying I'm doing to write a third, [personal profile] dira, I'm just saying if I wrote a third.) Anyway, I started to get a better handle on their voices in this one, for all that there's more dialogue in the first.

Celebration for Three Mages and a Wise Man for ayalesca; Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch, gen. I kind of love this the best of the stories I wrote? Though it can't compete with the other lovely stories in this Yuletide fandom, particularly about Thomas Nightingale. (Not that it is a competition!) It was just a treat to write in this 'verse, with these characters, and the concept of their New Year's Eve--and Peter's experience of it as a part of the Folly rather than patrol--was very real to me.

Arrows of the Field for marlowe_tops; Kings, Jack Benjamin/David Shepherd (sort of). I wish I'd had more time for this story, because there was so much more to say. The story of David, and his flight from Gilboa, is a fascinating one both in the show and biblically, and I wanted to be able to poke at it some more and see how to graft the myth onto the show. Ce la vie.

Break the Chain for Quettaser; Step Up Revolution | Step Up 4: Miami Heat (2012), Emily gen. I think this ended up more muted than I would have liked, given the vibrancy of the film, but the thing about Emily (and the Step Up movies in general) is that they gave her a dream and a bare midriff and basically nothing else. The more I thought about Step Up 4 the closer I got to this idea of how Emily got to where she was, why she was that driven. And it had some other dance movie in-jokes in there too.

Those Ever Resolute for Oparu; Good Wife (TV), Alicia Florrick/Kalinda Sharma. This is probably one of my top ten pairings, and I think I've really started to figure out how to write Alicia and Kalinda. It's quiet, and reserved, kind of like them. Alicia is such an interesting puzzle to me; I love teasing out bits of her, especially those that the show likes to wink at as well. There's more there there, and I want to get more into it later on.

Come See About Me for astralis; Haven, Duke Crocker/Audrey Parker/Nathan Wuornos. I honestly thought this would be the most popular of my stories, which it probably would have been if I hadn't forgotten to include a summary in the stupid thing until, you know, tonight. Oh well. Anyway, this started off in a weird maudlin season two place, but got to the snark and sexy pretty quickly; the story definitely didn't end up being what I thought it was going to be, but it was fun and worked for me. I love--well, okay, I love everyone, but as pertains to this story, I love Audrey and Duke's relationship and how warm it can be, even though Audrey is difficult and Duke is probably still doing illegal shit right under her nose. Anyway, hopefully you'll enjoy the lolz and the come-ons as much as I enjoyed writing them.


And that's it, except for one! Yo, before I lose you, would you mind taking a quick poll for me? I'm trying to figure out how best to post my stories, especially since LJ is kind of tanking right now.

Select all that apply:

Where should templemarker post her fic?

Where should templemarker announce her fic?

Thank you and seasonally appropriate greetings to you all. <3

'Here you are, ma'am,' Jenny said, as careful and prim as if a dozen watching eyes were upon them. Vastra quashed a smile, choosing instead to take a sip of her tea. Lady Grey, with the dash of arsenic that gave it such a pleasant spice to the tongue. Jenny was so terribly good to her. Collapse )

Two Rows Up by templemarker [Fringe/Hockey RPF, gen]

Two Rows Up
by templemarker

Notes: A Fringe/Hockey RPF story written because I rewatched season 1 and couldn't shake the notion. Not to mention that Joshua Jackson will always, always be Charlie from The Mighty Ducks to me, so there's a little of that too. More or less set in the first half of Fringe Season 1 with no explicit spoilers. My beta thanks to samjohnsson; this story is dedicated to you.

Also available on adamao, AO3, LJ, and DW.

Peter broke into one of his broad, winning smiles, and brandished a pair of tickets. Olivia stepped closer and took them from him--Boston Bruins, it said, vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, TD Banknorth Garden. 'Hockey?' she asked, surprised, looking up to meet Peter's pleased look. 'Hockey,' he confirmed, failing to hide his excitement. 'I got great seats. I know a guy.'Collapse )
