Yuletide Letter  
Alright, Yuletide, I'm ready! Are you? To help you get prepared, here are my thoughts on some specific fandoms. Don't worry about sticking to the letter of my ramblings too much, though, because frankly I'm pretty easy to please :)

Specifics )

And now for some more general likes and dislikes. I love gen fic, love it to pieces. Character explorations, introspection, adventures, mysteries... all great things in my book. Subtleties are fantastic, as is the exploration of concepts through the characters (like the beauty of a mathematical theory as displayed by the relationship between two characters). But I love romance, too, so long as it's not too sappy and unrealistic. I love those awkward sorts of love where everything fits but the characters might not quite see it yet. Banter is for me like caffeine is for other people: it runs in my veins and I need it to live. Bittersweet is good but if the balance tips too much towards bitter with almost no sweet, that is less good. I'm really not a fan of anything with torture, unnecessary darkness (like, not in keeping with where a character is in canon), and non-consensual sex. I enjoy any rating of fic, so feel free to go where your muse takes you. I actually rather enjoy crossovers, so long as the crossovers keep all of the characters feeling true and one fandom or the other doesn't come off as flat. And that the crossover isn't completely unrealistic and hard to get my head around. Something like Polly running into the Hempstocks on a drive through the country would be fun, for example, because conceivably that could happen pretty easily in either book.

This all said, as I mentioned above, I really am easy to please. I've listed a number of questions/ideas that I have but by no means are these the only things you could explore within a fandom. Please, by all means, let your imagination run wild and have fun!!! I look forward to the results.

[fic] Request Fulfilled  
Title: The Surprising Perception of 19th Century Authors
Fandom: Bleach
Rating: PG
Characters: Ichigo, Tatsuki
Summary: Things have changed since high school. It takes a Christmas Eve stroll down memory lane for Tatsuki to realize just how much.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] cal_reflector requested Ichigo/Tatsuki & Christmas Eve. This is what resulted. It should be noted that I wrote this after having watched three different versions of A Christmas Carol AND re-read select excerpts of the book. I'm pretty sure this is far more serious than what you had in mind when you gave me the prompt. Still, I hope you enjoy it.

There'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago )

[fic] Extended Recess's Extended Universe... continued!  
Title: Jinxed
Characters/Groups: Jin, Yamapi, Kame, Nakamaru, Matsujun, various other JE cameos
Genre: AU Crack, Gen
Rating: PG-15 (language)
Author's Notes: A continuation of the Extended Recess extended universe! This only took about six weeks longer than I thought it would.
Summary: Jin seems to have a great propensity for breaking vending machines.

[fic] Extended Recess's Extended Universe  
Title: A Perfectly Good Waste of Italian Leather
Characters/Groups: Nakamaru, Nino, various (and brief) JE cameos
Genre: AU Crack, Gen
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: See 'characters', 'genre', and 'rating'
Author's Notes: So... [livejournal.com profile] katmillia wrote this crazy-hilarious, utterly epic fic called MTV Road Rules: Across America in 15 Days. For her birthday earlier this month, I wrote a sort of insert fic for this universe. If you haven't read the original, this fic probably won't make a ton of sense being that it's AU and all. So do yourself a favor and go read the original first (if JE is your fandom, of course).
Summary: When the show makes a stop in Oklahoma, there is absolutely no way it can turn out well for Maru. Nino, of course, does nothing to help matters.

Secret Santa Fic  
Title: The Dessert Deficiency
Fandom: Cardcaptor Sakura
Characters/Pairing: Touya, Yue (mentions of established Touya/Yukito, hints of Touya/Yue)
Rating: PG
Length: 1100 words
Summary: How much of failure rests on the shoulders of the student and how much rests on the teacher? Touya attempts to make mooncakes and experiences marginal success at best.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] tsukimineshrine's Secret Santa fic exchange for [livejournal.com profile] shondrea. I hope you enjoy your present! Also, the title is shamelessly in the fashion of Big Bang Theory episode titles, if only because I can't get that show completely out of my brain.

Yes, I did it. Here's the proof.

Title: With Friends Like These, Who Needs Preternaturally Strong Cursed Mummies?
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aoife_hime
Fandom: The Mummy
Rating: PG
Length: 1650
Summary: In which Jonathan fails, Rick unleashes his feminine side, and Ardeth plays dirty and comes out on top.
Notes: Basically a missing scene from the part of the movie where the guys are driving out into the desert to find Winston & his airplane. This whole thing came about mostly as a thank you for Miranda & Betsy for putting up with my late-night fear of being ambushed by claymation mummies on my walk home.

So... pomegranates. To the few of you who knew I was writing this, here's the long-awaited first part to my pomegranate crack fic for Final Fantasy XII.

Title: The School of Shihouin

Fandom: Bleach
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairing: Yoruichi/Byakuya, Yoruichi & Urahara friendship
Summary: Before they were rogue and captain, they were teacher and student... and something more.
Notes: This was meant to be a quick exorcism of a short fluffy plot bunny. Yeah... that wasn't exactly what happened in the end. Please beware of the giant amount of artistic license I took with these two and their backstory, and watch out for spoilers for Chapter 299 of the manga. Not giant spoilers, but spoilers nevertheless.

Summary: Karin and Yuzu speculate about their brother's future.
Notes: Story picks up in the middle of Chapter 239 of the manga (roughly where the anime is at currently, I think... I haven't been following it closely so I'm not entirely sure), so beware of spoilers. However, beyond that everything is of my own imagining, and thus is AU. This last part is the result of the devious part of my brain's machinations after reading the beginning of Chapter 197. Think of it what you will.
