Yuletide 2015

Dear [community profile] yuletide writer:

Thank you so much for writing me a fic! I'm sure it's going to be amazing, and I'm so looking forward to reading it. These are some ideas/extra information/things that would make me especially happy, but if my optional details don't work for you, or if you already have an idea in mind, I'd much rather get a great story you're really excited about than something mediocre tailored exactly to my requests.

You can find me on AO3 as Zhailei.

Favourite things in general:

  • Ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, casefic, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocalypses (zombie or otherwise), and ridiculous AUs

  • Tropes and clich├ęs - fake dating, forced proximity, trapped together, sharing a bed, accidental marriage, bachelor auctions, truth or dare, sex pollen, accidental stimulation, wall!sex, frottage, etc. The more shameless the better!

  • First times, secret relationships, casual hookups, ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships

  • People being in love without having to say it, people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it, ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person (willingly) completely embarrasses themselves, and small gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to

  • Any rating - where I've listed a pairing, porn is absolutely welcome

  • Things I'd prefer not to receive:

  • Angst, darkfic, and unhappy endings

  • Character studies, introspection, alternate POV on canon events, or other fics where nothing much actually happens

  • First person POV

  • Issue fic

  • Genderswap

  • Non-requested pairings (any I've mentioned are more than welcome!)

  • Avalon High (Allie Pennington)

    Okay, so: While I was watching this for the first time, I enjoyed it (mostly because of Britt Robertson's face, ngl), AND THEN THE ENDING HAPPENED AND IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS MOVIE 1000%. Basically this movie hit on some of my favourite tropes crazy hard (mythology adaptations! modern AUs! girls in armour!), and I really just want more of any of that. Adventures! Swordfighting! Prophecies! Crazy magic stuff! High school! Literally all of it is <3 <3 <3

    This is the rare fandom where I don't really care about shipping, so I'd love to receive gen, please!

    Things I would particularly love:

  • Anything set post-movie. How does Allie deal with the revelation that she's actually King Arthur? Where does she go from here? I loved the last scene of the movie - the way the whole gang was together, the blending of their past and present identities - and I'd love anything that continues in that vein.

  • Past lives! If you wanted to write me Arthurian mythology fic where Allie is the king and Miles is her wizard, etc. I would be so on board with that! MORE GIRLS IN ARMOUR, basically. And swordfighting. (There doesn't have to be swordfighting. But I would definitely enjoy it if that's the sort of thing you would like to write.)

  • Identity porn. All the identity porn. Playing around with the characters' identities and histories would be seriously awesome, so go nuts with that.

  • Or you could introduce other characters from Arthurian myth! More knights of the round table! Morgan le Fay! The Lady of the Lake! And who was Will, after all?

  • ANYTHING ELSE EVER. This is true of all my requests, but seriously, feel free to go as trope-y as you like. Whatever you feel like writing, I will adore it!

  • Where can I find it?: Avalon High is a Disney Channel Original Movie that aired in 2010. It hasn't been released on DVD, but is available on Netflix or to download via iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, or here: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6.

    Happyland (Lucy Velez)

    The premise of this show was basically like catnip to me, and I'm so disappointed we'll never get a second season. Basically, what I really want is all the things I never got to have on-screen - which is to say, various Totally Not Disneyland pseudo-incesty shenanigans. (If you're not into incest, I would be totally cool with gen featuring Lucy with Ian and/or Theodore, or general ensemble shenanigans.)

    Things I would particularly love:

  • For Ian and Lucy in particular, what I crave is the 'series of unfortunate events' fic where they keep getting thrown together in ridiculous, UST-y situations and then make out a whole bunch (obviously during the time period where they believe they're brother and sister).

  • Or an AU/plot twist where, surprise, they really are related after all!

  • Theodore/Lucy I did not expect to ship, but then he kept being all intense and disapproving and reallyreallyclosestanding, and so here we are. Angry wall!sex, anyone?

  • Fic where Theodore and Lucy have to work together (maybe Theodore has to fill in as Prince Charming one day?)

  • Random park shenanigans! Funny dead people! Ride malfunctions! Totally-not-fun work functions! Park events!

  • Where can I find it? Happyland aired a single eight-episode season on MTV in 2014. Full episodes can be viewed on the MTV website or on Hulu, Amazon, or iTunes.

    Miss Match (Any)

    I love this fandom, and I would love any kind of fic written for it - gen or shippy, drama, comedy, crack, crossover, AU, whatever. Things I love the most include: The fact that every episode contains its very own miniature romantic comedy, hanging out at the bar, Kate in matchmaking mode, first dates, blind dates, not-a-date dates, anything and everything where characters interact with each other. I'd particularly love anything in the style of the show - that is to say, something romantic comedy-ish - but I'd be just as happy to read something plotty, or dramatic, or smutty, or anything else you could possibly write.

    Things I would particularly love:

  • Post-series fic where Adam keeps pursuing Kate, and where she (reluctantly) falls for him. I just really loved this storyline, and I'd love to see it play out - especially if their relationships with Michael stay intact.

  • Nick/Victoria. Anything, anything involving Nick and Victoria. Hookups at the bar? Sexy roommates with benefits? Mutually being in denial about the fact they they're totally (still) dating? Yes, please!

  • While Michael doesn't appear in the tag set, I do like him, and I also ship Michael/Kate; I'd love to read any kind of shippy fic set during or post-canon.

  • Anything that reads vaguely like an episode of the show - feel free to make up your own couple(s) for Kate to matchmake, or a plotty court case for her to get involved in, or anything else you feel like writing.

  • Crossovers are also totally welcome, though I'd prefer fandoms I'm familiar with. The Clueless fan in me would particularly love a crossover with Franklin & Bash (maybe Kate and Jared went to high school together??? and/or they meet on a divorce case?), and I've always really wanted a Psych crossover where blah blah blah legal stuff, and maybe Kate sets up Gus with ALL THE LADIES (or possibly with Shawn). But feel free to use your imagination (as long as the primary focus stays on Miss Match).

  • Where can I find it? Miss Match ran for a single 18-episode season in 2003. It isn't available on DVD (to my everlasting disappointment), but the episodes can be acquired in the usual places online.

    There is a Miss Match fandom primer that has download links and more information.

    Nightwing (Comics) (Rose Wilson)

    Rose is one of my very favourite comics characters ever (I may have a thing for blondes with supervillain dads who nobody really believes can or should be superheroes). I love her attitude and her general badassery and the way she's combative and rage-y and sometimes struggles with being a superhero. I love how she flirts with basically everyone. I love how she started off as a bad guy trying to be her dad, and, yeah, sometimes she has a hard time not killing people. But she's trying. And, okay, so: I know Rose was super messed up and not really herself during the whole 'trying to be her dad' era, but HER EYE <3 <3 <3 I KNOW IT'S MESSED UP BUT IT'S POSSIBLY MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT HER. Because she's a badass and she has a ridiculous family background and she's super messed up because of it, and all of that is so integral to who she is and I love every bit of it. ALSO THE RENEGADE ARC, ALL SHE NEEDS IS FOR SOMEBODY TO VALUE HER AND HAVE FAITH IN HER CUE DICK GRAYSON, BEST HUMAN. Basically TOTALLY OPTIONAL but if you wanted to have her team up with Dick in any way (with or without makeouts) that would be totally amazing.

    This is primarily a character rather than fandom request, and I'd be just as happy to read about Rose within the context of her Teen Titans or Terror Titans appearances. In general, however, I vastly prefer pre-reboot Rose to her more recent characterisation; if you do choose to write her in the New 52, please make her the Rose I know and love <3

    Things I would particularly love:

  • I loved her arc in Nightwing when he was training her, and her super fun objectification of him (because, come on, Dick Grayson) and him inspiring her to question her father and be a better person. I'd love to read either anything from that timeframe, or a later reunion between them.

  • I'd also love anything with the Teen Titans (or teaming up with Damian again, because they make such a fantastic team, adorable angry ex-assassins represent!). I love the whole team in its various incarnations, so ensemble fic would be amazing also, as would pretty much anything where Rose fights crime or does anything ever.

  • I loved Rose's budding friendship/relationship/whatever with Kon towards the end of Teen Titans, so if you wanted to explore more of that relationship (preferably with makeouts), or even just have them interact at all, I would be 100% okay with that. HE GAVE HER THE KEY TO HIS HEART KILLING HIM.

  • Or an AU - maybe a universe where Rose became Dick's sidekick partner? Where she never joined the Teen Titans, or ended up leading them? Where she's part of the Batfamily, or a member of an entirely different team?

  • I'd also love to read about Rose's time as part of the Terror Titans or the Ravagers. I found the Terror Titans really interesting, and thought the Ravagers premise had a lot of potential (including Thunder and Lightning and their incestuous co-dependent relationship), and I'd love to see either of those expanded on.

  • Where can I find it? Prior to the New 52 reboot, Rose appeared in titles including Teen Titans (2003-2011), the 'Renegade' arc of Nightwing (issues #112-117), the 2008 Terror Titans miniseries, and a backup series of her own collected as Ravager: Fresh Blood. Post-reboot, she briefly headlined The Ravagers, which ran for 12 issues before being cancelled. These appearances are all collected in trade paperback or available online. The Rose Wilson masterpost contains links to all her pre-New 52 comics appearances.

    If you're looking for a primer, I highly recommend [personal profile] dudski's an absolutely not brief history of rose wilson.
