Fandom: Yuletide 2016 Tally (Updated)

So it would seem that was, actually, not that.

Assignment: 9k+, old fandom
Treat #1: 1500+, old fandom
Treat #2: 5k+, new fandom
Treat #3: 1500+, old fandom
Treat #4: 2500+, old fandom

Five stories is a much more respectable number for me to write this year, especially when I checked my writing tracking file, and saw that with all the fits and starts of these five stories, I wrote more than 25k for Yuletide this year. That's decent, even if the final output doesn't really reflect it.

Those are all in the main archive. I'm trying to get something else done for madness, but I need to go get ready for family stuff, and I'm not sure when that will be done.

I am much happier with this result, even if it still doesn't touch last year's marathon writing.

Fandom: Yuletide 2016 Tally

I may be done posting stories, depending on how the next few days go, so I'll do a tally now. (If I manage anything else, I'll update it.) This was not my best writing year by far; between November's rage slump, and being slammed with family holiday stuff this year, I just ran out of time despite the dozens and dozens of letters I flagged for potential treats.

Assignment: 9k+, old fandom
Treat #1: 2k+, old fandom
Treat #2: 3k+, new fandom

That is it. Le sigh.

There are some excellent fandoms in the taglist for Yuletide, though, and I can't wait to dive into the stories this weekend!

Fandom: Fate of the Furious

Y'all. Y'ALL. When I saw the title for the new movie, I laughed until I cried at the ridiculous levels of drama in it, and now the trailer is out, and I am completely besotted with this ridiculous franchise even more than I already was. It is going to be even more over-the-top and emotionally dramatic than the last couple of movies, and I can't wait. I CAN'T WAIT.

</em>


I can't even begin to tell you how much joy this franchise has brought me over the years. I can't wait to see the explanation for what's going on, and all the gorgeous cars and explosions, and the hot people hitting each other. I LOVE THIS DAMN FRANCHISE.

Fandom: Bones season six

I've been rewatching Bones while writing, and halfway through season six, I'm struck again by how hard I shipped Bones/Booth/Hannah. So, so hard. Hannah hits on Bones pretty much every time she sees her, and I love them. Anyone have any fic recs?

I received two utterly perfect stories for Trick or Treat, and I am just verklempt with joy and wonder. They are amazing, and each exactly what I wanted for the characters I love.

Security (781 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Jurassic Park (Movies)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Lex Murphy, Sarah Harding
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Velociraptors, Trick or Treat 2016, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD, Women In Power
Summary:

Lex never thought she'd be on Isla Nublar ever again.



This is such a perfect, wonderful, believable addition of Lex and Sarah to Jurassic World, and all the weight their experiences bring to the new park. I love Lex here, and her terror, and her drive to make things as safe as possible, even when she knows there is no safe on an island full of dinosaurs.

Silverwater (9169 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Emelan - Tamora Pierce
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Daja Kisubo/Original Female Character(s)
Characters: Sandrilene fa Toren, Briar Moss, Trisana Chandler, Original Characters, Daja Kisubo
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, ToT: Monster Mash
Summary:

After she returns from Namorn, Daja is at a loose end, so when Frostpine offers her the chance to travel to Capchen and help an old friend of his, she takes it. But the mystery she uncovers is nothing like what she expected...



This is an amazing Daja story filled with adventure and magic and flirtations and everything I possibly could have ever asked for from a Daja story. It is perfect. I teared up more than once reading it, because it is so very, very perfect, and exactly what I wanted.

Fandom: Trick or Treat 2016 Tally

I think I'm done writing extra treats for Trick or Treat 2016 (I need to be done, I have a different project that's been languishing the past week or so because of fic writing), so here is this year's tally.

Assignment: >1500 words, old fandom
Treat #1: >900 words, new fandom
Treat #2: >1000 words, new fandom
Treat #3: >1500 words, old fandom
Treat #4: >1000 words, old fandom

I can't wait for the collection to open. There are some great fandoms in it. Here's a link to the dashboard, though of course it doesn't open until Monday. Yay Halloween!

(This means it's time to turn to Yuletide writing. I have so much research to do for my assignment. SO MUCH. Really looking forward to it, though.)

Fandom: Dear Yuletide Author 2016

ETA 10 October: I have finished my first playthrough of Kisses & Curses, and have added a few notes to that section.</em>

Dear Yuletide Author,

Yuletide is my favorite fannish time of year, and I can’t wait to read your story. It brings me great joy to write stories for people for Yuletide, and I hope that you have a lot of fun and a wonderful experience writing for me. I’m on DW, LJ, and AO3 as escritoireazul.

Below, I’ve provided some general likes and Do Not Wants, and then my individual fandom requests, with prompts and reasons why I like the fandoms and characters. If there is a discrepancy between the general likes and DNWs and the fandom-specific information, go with the fandom-specific information. Feel free to mix and match prompts, within a fandom or across fandoms, or to ignore my prompts completely.

I’m always down for adding werewolves to a fandom. Always.

General Information, Likes, DNWsCollapse )

Requests

My requests are in alphabetical order. I love each of them, and would be absolutely delighted to receive a story for any of them. There are spoilers in each section.

Fandom: 2016 - 2017 TV Shows

What I'm watching/considering watching this year. Mostly broken down by day, except for the sports. I don't actually watch anything live, though; we don't have cable or network television, so everything is streaming, and usually on a day or more delay.

Dear Trick or Treat Creator,

Halloween is my favorite holiday and fall my favorite season, so Trick or Treat is an awesome mix of things I love combined with fandoms I adore. I had a blast last year, and I can’t wait to see your creation.

Below, I’ve provided some general likes and Do Not Wants, as well as a few thoughts about why I like specific fandoms and characters. If there is a discrepancy between the general likes and DNWs and the fandom-specific information, go with the fandom-specific information. I like both fic and art, and my prompts generally work for both. Feel free to mix and match tricks and treats, within a fandom or across fandoms, or to ignore my prompts completely.

My absolutely favorite things: werewolves, crossovers, and monsters and magic.

You can find me on DW, LJ, and AO3 as escritoireazul.

Likes:

+ girl slash, gen, and het more than boy slash, mostly because I really love stories about women
+ women being awesome and competent and smart and funny and sexy
+ werewolves and werewolf packs as families and women being amazing werewolves and werewolf alternate universes in any canon and full moons over the ocean
+ chosen families being loving and protective and a little snarly with each other because they trust each other to always be there and adoption stories where adoption is treated as totally normal and not a BIG DRAMATIC SECRET to up the tension and siblings as friends and friends as family
+ Halloween and horror movies
+ roadtrip stories and motorcycle rides
+ crossovers, the more twisty and complicated the better.

Do Not Want:
+ disrespect for characters of color, queer characters (particularly bisexual and trans* characters), fat characters, or characters with mental illness
+ character bashing
+ rape and non-con and dub-con (including as backstory)
+ use of "crazy" to mean bad or dangerous or scary, etc.
+ stories set at mental hospitals, whether currently active or abandoned
+ embarrassment/humiliation
+ animal cruelty or death
+ incest
+ spiders. Especially in art, but sometimes even the word is enough to get to me.

SO LET US TALK ABOUT HOW TO NOMINATE THIS VIDEO.



Mostly, I am trying to decide how to nominate the characters. Despite MULTIPLE documents and news reports being included, I have not managed to make out either Demi or Michelle's character name, nor have I found it in any of the articles I've read about the video. It feels weird to nominate by their public names verses character names, but if that is what I have to do, it is what I will do.

Suggestions?

Fandom: King Arthur Office Comedy

[dreamwidth.org profile] skygiants came up with the most amazing reincarnation-based King Arthur office show ever, and I am nearly in tears laughing at just the notes. I wish some production company would make this happen, because I need it. I need it.

I do not normally give one fuck about King Arthur stories, but I NEED THIS.

Fandom: The Finder

I'd forgotten how terrible and heartbreaking (and, okay, well fucking done) the ending of The Finder is, considering it got cut short way too soon and it leaves everyone in a terrible place. FUCK.

Clearly THIS is what I should request for Yuletide, because I just want so much better for everyone.

(Also, it has made me sad about Michael Clarke Duncan all over again. God, he was amazing in everything, and I really fucking loved his character here.)

Okay, terrible might be too strong a word, but it ends in damn bittersweet ways, and I just want all sorts of stories about these characters solving mysteries and being a strange, broken little found family.

(This rewatch reminded me how damn annoying it is that either the writing and/or the way the episodes were aired was so out of order that continuity got fucked up, which is the same in Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, another show I just finished. It felt like a huge chunk of season two was actually episodes that were written to be a part of season one, and it was annoying as hell.)

I've been watching a bunch of marching band and football movies and tv shows lately (because I'm working on a college marching band story that is just different enough from the type I'm watching that I can still watch them).

Earlier, I watched Varsity Blues, which is so, so terrible and cheesy in so many ways, but still hits me right in the feelings at a couple key points. (Also, I used to listen to the soundtrack during music competitions in high school, when I needed to clear my head from what we were actually playing. I have this sharp memory of stretching out in the sun a couple hours before my district solo competition one year and listening to "Horror Show" and "My Hero" on repeat.

I'm in the middle of Drumline: A New Beat (which is still pretty much the perfect college drumline story for me), and it is a little bit too close to what I'm actually writing for me to really want to be watching it, but I've already been sucked into the rewatch, so I'll finish it. It is so much fun, and I was charmed anew by the fact it actually addresses gay black men and the intersectional identities they have to navigate. (I wish it did the same for queer black women.)

This is my favorite time of year because of marching band (and Halloween and family holidays), but it is a difficult time of year, too, and I can feel myself slipping into a depressive cycle. I'm hoping to be able to keep writing this draft; I'm about 30k into it, and I think it will finish at around 75k, so I'm well underway.

Fandom: Yuletide brainstorming

It is that time of year again! I've been thinking about potential Yuletide requests for a few weeks now, and was worried I wouldn't be able to come up with anything because I have been so hardcore into Leverage and The Librarians, neither of which are eligible (based on my super quick check of numbers at ff.net and AO3). (I've only seen season one of The Librarians, but there is a set of alternate universes toward the end of the season that has me wanting ALL THE FIC.)

But then I read through my Yuletide tag for awhile to inspire myself, and it worked!

Fandoms I am considering for Yuletide 2016:

+ Demi Lovato "Confident" music video

OH MY GOD THIS CONTINUES TO BE ONE OF THE HOTTEST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN. It is Michelle Rodriguez and Demi Lovato as ass-kicking badasses who have been used by the system in some way, first fight each other and then bond, and take off on motorcycles at the end. Are they somehow enhanced by science experiments? Are they werewolves? Are they just that badass? What happens after, what wrongs do they go right next? I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING.

Some of you expressed interest when I found it last year, so consider this your reminder: I really want to make this happen, y'all. Let's write hot music video fic this year!

+ Long Live the Queen, Turn of the Story, and/or Life is Strange

The three fandoms I requested last year, and I got an amazing Life is Strange story from it that I've reread numerous times and love. I might request on or more of these again, though; reading over last year's letter (which is linked above) reignited my excitement over all three.

+ Girl Meets World

I love Maya and Riley SO MUCH, and from a previous Yuletide brainstorming session, was reminded that I really want some sort of ghost story for them, Scooby Doo style, maybe. There are a ton of potential stories I would love to read.

However, I took a sharp break from it partway through season two (I think it was season two) because of some of the character choices they made for Farkle, and I haven't yet gone back. I should give it another try.

+ A couple years ago, I said I wished I'd discovered The Next Step before nominations closed, and I loved season one, then proceeded to never actually nominate it last year or watch any of the other seasons that may exist. I should look into that. I love ridiculous dance shows!

+ Also a couple years ago, I said I wanted Yuletide fic for Werewolf: The Beast Among Us, and yet I have never nominated it. This year may be the year.

What do you guys want to request and write for Yuletide?

Fandom: Librarians

Clearly directly related to my newfound love of Leverage, I have started watching The Librarians. I've just finished the first two episodes of season one, which set up the premise and introduce the characters, and I am utterly charmed by this cheesy, adorable, ridiculous show. I've not seen the movies, and I don't actually like Flynn enough as a character at this point to go watch movies based around his adventures, but I have once again been hit by found family feelings. I am particularly delighted by John Kim playing Ezekial Jones, a snarky thief who makes me clap with glee often.

How I feel watching it reminds me quite a bit of how I felt watching Primeval, which I still adore and rewatch when I can.

So, people, any recs I can add to my reading or watching list for this one?

Fandom: Leverage

Thank you so much for all your recs. I've finally finished watching it ("finally" I pretty much marathoned all five seasons in a couple weeks, omg), and will start checking out your recs this weekend. I'm so excited about it! (And I wasn't clear about this, but vid recs are always welcome, too.)

I went into Leverage knowing: (1) a bunch of people whose taste I really trust absolutely adore it, (2) Aldis Hodge is ridiculously hot, (3) he played a wicked smart tech geek which makes him even hotter, (4) the blonde woman was an amazing thief who liked fire, (5) it was going to give me all sorts of chosen family feelings, and (6) there was an OT3 of OT3s that I was probably going to adore. And all those things are so, so, so true.

some spoilersCollapse )

When I watched the final episode, I immediately started a rewatch, which I have never done before with a tv show. In part, I wasn't done living in this world, but also, it is excellent background for writing. I managed more than 70k last month, finished a draft of my current project, and am making great progress on the first draft of my next project.

LEVERAGE, Y'ALL. <3 <3 <3

Fandom: Leverage fic recs request

Earlier this week, after tons of people recommending it to me, I finally started watching Leverage, and I am already on season three. It is amazing and wonderful and fills me with feelings and I love everyone except for Nate indescribable amounts, but particularly Hardison, Parker, and Eliot, and of course my new OT3 of them together.

So those of you who were much smarter than me and have been loving it for years, please give me all your fic recs. I need them. I need them all.

I spend a great deal of time staring at the screen with hearts and stars in my eyes because I love this ridiculous chosen family so goddamn much.

Fandom: Captain America: Civil War

I have not been so happy about a movie in a long, long time. I walked out saying I liked it almost as much as Winter Soldier, but the more I've talked about it with friends, I think in many ways I liked it even more. And unlike a lot of people, I thought it fit much more as the follow-up to Civil War than as Avengers 2.5, at least in terms of tone and storytelling strengths. (Obviously, Age of Ultron had to happen just to get the characters in, but still.)

fandom: Girl Meets World season two

I've been catching up on season two of Girl Meets World, and Farkle has been far less annoying this season, for a variety of reasons, but then the writers have him force Riley to admit to feelings she's not ready to deal with because she's afraid of hurting her best friend. He does this by telling everyone her secret. I want someone to punch him in the face.

He does this under the guise of being a good friend, and that it's best for Riley, but it is so, so gross, the way it is handled. It's her life, and her relationships, and she gets to decide what she is going to say when. I have the feeling the show is going to 100% condone this as an act of true friendship, and seriously, someone needs to be punched in the face.

I'm at episode 25, Girl Meets the New Year, and I'm not sure if I can keep going with the season, because I am so angry at how this is being handled. He doesn't get to come in and tell Riley how she feels, how she handle her feelings, or force her to do anything at all about her feelings. That is not friendship.
