(I had to default last year due to RL issues, well within the limits, fortunately.  I don't anticipate such a thing this year and am really looking forward to doing yuletide again!  You could also check out my bookmarks on AO3.)

Thanks!

Information will be here soon!

Sorry, RL is crazy-busy!  Hopefully should have it up the first week of Nov.  If you want to get a head start you can check out my previous year's Yuletide letters, for generalities and the like, from 09, 10 and 11.

Thanks!

Looks like it could be really neat, if we actually got some people behind it.

Much of this is going to repeat from last year, though I do have one new fandom, and some updates for previously-requested ones.  I love Yuletide dearly and hope you have as much fun with it as I do.

In addition to the notes I made in my request: Erotica wouldn't be my first choice, and neither would angst (unless it's accompanied by a significant amount of making it better).  Squicks in ALL fandoms are non-con, embarrassment and deathfic.
SpecificsCollapse )

I love long and plotty and fun and AUs and hilariousness and introspective and everyone working together and action and sillyness.  Optional details are optional, so whatever you get an idea for, go for it, be it a space pirates AU or a couple of characters hanging out.

If you want to take a look at other stories I like, please poke around my memories here on LJ and/or my bookmarks over at AO3.

This will be my third year for Yuletide and it's definitely become one of my favorite parts of the season. I had a fantastic time last year and I can't wait to get started this year. It's great fun and I love it, and I hope you do, too!

I have posted my Yuletide story (it took me more than an hour, due to heavy site traffic, but it is done!), and my gift story for Yuletide has also been posted!  THANK YOU YULETIDE AUTHOR!  I don't know who you are or what you've written yet, but it is there and mysterious and SHINY and I am very very excited about it!

I love Yuletide, you guys, have I mentioned this?

Now I just need Yuletide Madness to start, because that was also awesome fun last year, and I wrote fic in fandoms I would've never considered.

I'm just so pleased with all of fandom right now!

Well met, fellow scribe!

In general, what I love about Yuletide is the chance to have a little bit of happiness in fandoms I don't get to spend much time in.  I like comfortable, quiet gen, and plotty zaniness, and AUs, and everything in between.

Erotica wouldn't be my first choice, and neither would angst (unless it's accompanied by a significant amount of making it better).  Squicks in ALL fandoms are non-con, embarrassment and deathfic.

As it said in the signups, these are all suggestions, and if you have an idea gnawing at you, please do go with that.

If you want to take a look at other stories I like, please poke around my memories here on LJ and/or my bookmarks over at AO3.

I have to say, this is only my second year doing Yuletide, but I had a fantastic time last year and I can't wait to get started this year.  It's great fun and I love it, and I hope you do, too!

Hello again, internet!  Sadly, this time I do not come bearing fanfic.  I do come bearing a question for anyone reading this who reads comics, and the question is--Batgirl?

On the one hand, I have heard awesome things about this title.  The writing is supposed to be quippy and touching, Steph finally come into her own, etc etc.  It's also a monthly title with a female lead, which I am all about supporting.

On the other hand . . . dammit, I want my slightly disabled Asian Batgirl back!  I'm picking up Cass's trades and back issues, but it doesn't feel right that I never bought Cass's title (for reasons of not being able to afford to buy anything but the occasional Astro City at the time) and now I'm considering buying the able white girl's title.  It's a squicky comparison for me.

Thoughts?  Counter-arguments?  Is the title worth it anyway?

Title: Five Times Kara’s Nightmares Woke Someone Else
Series: House of El
Fandom: DC comics
Pairing/Characters: Kara Zor-El, Martha Kent, Ted Grant, J'onn J'onzz, Kon-El, Tim Drake
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: DC owns them, I’m just playing in their sandbox.
Author's Notes: Wow, it's been a while since I posted fic.  Sorry.  For those who don't remember, the premise of my House of El AU is that a sixteen-year-old Kara Zor-El came to Earth at the same time as baby Kal-El, and was also adopted by the Kents.  You can read this without knowing the AU, but you could also follow my House of El tag and read the other stories, if you'd like!
