Dear Yule-goat

This year I requested fic for Community, Dark Angel, Kushiel's Dart, and Veronica Mars.

ETA: Damn it, Veronica Mars wasn't allowed. Well, I'm leaving my request here, just in case anyone on my Friend's List is looking for a way to make my Yuletide extra-special.

Remember, optional details are optional, and I'm sure I'll love whatever you come up with!

I'm a fan of Community for the snappy dialogue, the meta play with genre, and Abed! Abed Abed Abed! So please incorporate him in whatever wonderful story you come up with! I also really enjoy his friendship with Troy.

A 'genre' story would be so awesome, my head might just explode. Community does 'After-School Special', perhaps? Community does 'It's a Wonderful Life'?

Dark Angel
I'm a huge fan of season 1 of this show. I like the dark, gritty, hungry vision of the future. If you're in the mood for femme-slashing Original Cindy and Max, that would be wonderful! Or a gen piece with the two of them (and any other characters) would be marvelous. A 'slice of life' story could be great, too. Something happens at the bike courier job? Maybe some back-story on Original Cindy?

Feel free to take things AU, in that you don't need to have events follow the season 1 canon, if you have something intriguing in mind. And I adore Alex, if you wanted to bring him in somehow - maybe his outsider POV on Max and Original Cindy?

Kushiel's Dart
I love this series for the hot, consensual BDSM, the intriguing religion the author's created, and Phedre, who can be strong, intelligent, and save the world as a masochistic submissive. Story ideas - anything, so long as it's not gen. I could enjoy an outsider POV, from Anafiel or Waldemar Selig, about Phedre. Phedre/Imriel would be incredibly hot, in that bad/wrong/want kind of way. (If you can keep it in character. And, yes, it should and WOULD be problematically incestuous.) Phedre fantasizing about Joscelin doing something he never would. Any kink you want to bring to the table. Absolutely anything. It all works for Phedre, it all works for me. Phedre's night in public as Melisande's pet was incredibly hot - you could do something with that. Or a visit to one of the Houses, for some purpose. Just make it hot, and I'll eat it up.

Veronica Mars
What really intrigues me about this show is it's awareness of class, of the 'two cities', one rich and the other poor, that exist in Neptune. If you can somehow incorporate that in the story you write, I'd love it. Eli lives in one, Logan in the other, and Veronica moves fluidly between them. If you can have all three of them in the story, that'd be great! You could take that in a gen way, with some kind of case-fic where Veronica recruits both of them to help, or write me some porn, with a hot little threesome. Hate sex between Eli and Logan, with Veronica enjoying the hell out of it?

Alternatively, I'm also interested in how Veronica's rape impacted her, how she deals with it, how she ... almost uses her outrage over it to power through and over the expectations have of her. If you wanted to write a story where she deals with the whole 'Slut' issue in some empowering way, I'd eat it up with a spoon!

I'm thrilled about all four of my requested fandoms. I threw some story ideas your way, but feel free to ignore them if they don't catch your interest. I'm sure I'll love whatever you write. Here are a few general ideas about my many likes and few dislikes.

I'm a fan of plotty stories. I like it when interesting things happen, characters need to do something or figure something out. Even in a story where the sex or relationship is the main focus, I love having some kind of additional conflict, mystery or action going on, something that shows these characters have lives and outside interests. Characters being smart and competent really please me.

I like angst and darkfic, up to and including deathfic. Now, don't feel that you have to go there - I like light, happy stories too! But if your Muse leads you somewhere dark, I'm delighted to go there with you. I like it when a character's dark side and flaws are intimately related to their best qualities. It's not that I enjoy the exploration of evil, per say. More that I'm fascinated by the search for love and redemption in even the darkest of circumstances.

Unreliable narrators are a particular thrill for me. I like Original Characters and outsider POVs, so feel free. I'm always interested in stories that reveal character backstory. I love stories about people who know and trust each other working together as a team. One of my requests mentioned AU's, but you could write one for any of my fandoms. I really enjoy AUs, especially the 'alternate timeline' or 'hinge-point' variety, where a single different decision veers reality away from canon.

I'm not into crack!fic, including tentacles, wings, and transformation fic. I don't like kid fic, and pregnancy completely squicks me. Plots that depend on characters acting like idiots are irritating. Pure romantic schmoop with no conflict or other plot doesn't generally work for me, and I'm not a fan of 'These characters are now pirates in the 1700's!' variety of AU.

Hot Sex
I read and enjoy lots of G-PG fic. But if you should be in the mood to write something porny, yay! I like slash, het, and femme-slash. I'm a fan of intense relationships. People who love each other beyond all reason. Even if you're writing about a hook-up or business transaction, I want it to be in response to some deep need, not just a casual fling. Kink works for me, if you want to go there. You don't have to - one of the hottest stories I ever read never went past a purely vanilla first base. Passionate, nervous first-time kissing. Mmmmm.

My favorite kinks include dirty talk, voyeurism, masturbation, pain, bloodplay, marking, bondage, orgasm denial, and power-imbalances. *licks lips* Most importantly, though, it needs to be in-character, be about these two (or three) people, what they want and need. Kinks are all about trust. It doesn't need to be safe or sane, but I want it consensual. The particular flavor of dubcon wherein a character is forced into something they desperately want, but could never reach out and take on their own sets me off like a fire-cracker.

I'm not into fisting, golden showers, cbt, scat-play, clothing-fetishes, DS as a lifestyle, necrophilia, bestiality, or role-playing. But you could probably make me buy into any one of them, if you write it hard and hot enough. The one thing that seriously turns me off is fic where the character's kink is because of some childhood trauma, sexual assault, or anything icky like that.

In Conclusion
To me, fanfic is all about getting a chance to explore characters in ways that the original source didn't allow. I love these characters, these worlds - show me something I didn't know about them, and that's the best present you can give me.

Your Eager Recipient,

- keerawa

Oh my god, Phedre/Imriel. Fuuuuuck, I never thought of that, but GUH, that'd be hot like burning!

I know, right?!? I almost feel bad requesting porn for the Kushiel series, since the plotting and characters are so brilliant, but I cannot resist the potential hotness.
