Note: I'm a yuletide newbie, so I'm just excited to have someone writing for me. I want you to write what makes you happy, and enjoy your yuletide experience. About my notes and requests: I loved naraht's letter enough that I borrowed some favorite things and rather not seen things. I'm all about the whim of the writer, my likes and dislikes are guidelines, but if the story takes you somewhere else, go with it. I love it all the same.
<3: Dark comedy, witty banter, vivid imagery, literary & historical references, melancholy tone, religious: identities or references and subtle mockery thereof, character introspection & retrospection, reading and research, irony, gentle mockery, moral and sexual ambiguity, social commentary, emotionally intense relationships without an acknowledged sexual relationship.
</3: bad grammar, PWPs, mpreg, S&M, or rape.
And now for
Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland:
: (from my sign-up) Hatter & Alice preferably conversational, and not overtly sexual. I like implied encounters. Also any inclusion of the Red Queen or Queen of Hearts gets bonus points.
: (extra things that might be useful to know) I'm only recently arrived to fanfiction for Alice in Wonderland, but I can tell you know, it's already consuming some useful brain power. If you check the tags at this journal, you can read the stories I've done - which differ greatly in tone. I'm really happy with anything Hatter and Alice related, dark is good, insane is better.
: (from my sign-up) I so love the mystery between Ben and Management. Including Brother Justin is awesome, but not necessary.
: (extra things that might be useful to know) Overall I'm not into the Carnivale fandom, but I miss the show a lot. Mostly, it plays on all my religious brain kinks that I have and I love the dark and light dichotomies in the show. This is something that I'm fairly easy to please in.
Fairy Tales (Little Red Riding Hood):
: (from my sign-up) Red and the wolf, dark is good here, the original is supposed to be scary. For an extra challenge, mentions of other Fairy Tales (like Snow White and Rose Red, or Briar Rose) would be welcome, obviously, I like the color themes.
: (extra things that might be useful to know) So, Fairy Tales overall are something I've been really getting into over the passed six months or so. I've been reading a lot of books of retellings of popular stories, as well as rereading the original Grimm's stories. I have always loved how dark the original stories are. Recently, a video game called "The Path" came out which was a Little Red story with a twist: instead of one girl, there were seven. And each girls worked her way to grandmother's house, but could encounter the wolf each time she ventured off the path. The wolf was a different creature depending on which girl was making her way to grandma's and I really liked the imagery of that. Obviously I have a thing for red (and black) because I've always felt this story was more about the visual than the written images in the story. I might not need to say it again, but I will, dark stories are okay here (and probably preferred).
: (from my sign-up) There's interesting relationships between Shilo and Graverobber and Shilo and Blind Mag. And while Nathan an inclusion of Nathan would be lovely, it's unnecessary. Preferably something conversational between Shilo and Graverobber with mentions of Mag.
: (extra things that might be useful to know) This is another fandom in which I'm very easy to please. I think the Graverobber is pretty darned cool (I've met Terrance Zdunich in real life, and he's a great guy) and would love something from his perspective instead of Shilo's. I know it's a popular match for Shilo/Graverobber, but I'm not really into the whole sexual relationship idea between the two of him. I see him like a crazy inventive bad-influence older brother for her, if that makes sense. But I'll love anything written here.
