Yuletide Letter 2015

Oct 18, 2015 21:58

Dear mysterious Yuletide writer,

It‘s Yuletide time again and I feel fine. I hope you're feeling fine as well, dear Yuletide writer. This is the place where I tell you that I'm easy to please and what I want most, is for you, dear mystery writer, to write what you want in the way you want to write. I do have prompts and things like that and I'll tell you a little bit about my likes and dislikes a little further down in the letter. Therefore I hope you're inspired by my prompts and that you'll have great writing experience.

Fandom: Figure Skating RPF
Characters: Johnny Weir, Stéphane Lambiel, Evan Lysacek and Brian Joubert.
Prompt: What I want basically, is something that could be called How Johnny Got His Groove Back. I want a happy Johnny doing fun Johnny things and Stéphane, Evan and Brian being along for the ride or maybe instigating the process of Johnny getting his groove back.

After a couple of years of having requesting skaters from the younger generation, I had an urge for something a little more old school. It kind of came about when I finally watched the documentary To Russia with Love and in it, was a moment with Johnny in his hotel room, checking his phone and being sad and broken about his divorce. All I wanted, was to see him happy and smiling. Which he tends to be around his old pals, Stéphane and Brian. And I had to throw in Evan for old times’ sake (guess when I got into Figure Skating RPF?). I would love to see other skaters thrown into the mix, the more the merrier. And I'm totally up for an AU.

Inspiration from Johnny's instagram:

Note: I avoided everything written in the tabloids and online about Johnny‘s real life divorce (except what he revealed himself in interviews) and while I know these things have two sides to them, I would prefer the fic wouldn‘t dwell on them.

Fandom: For Real - Alexis Hall
Characters: Laurence Dalziel and Toby Finch
Prompt: A glimpse or two in the future of those two.

I read this book shortly after it was published this spring and fell for it big time. The power exchange between them two was very compelling and I loved that the trust of both of them had be hard-earned. I loved the domestic moment between Laurie and Toby so much. The contrast between those moments and then the sex between them made it all the more interesting. I just want more of that.

Fandom: Five Dances (2013)
Characters: Chip Daniel, Cynthia, Katie and Theo
Prompt: This movie is so understated and lovely. I just want more about all these characters, more backstory and things like that. Would love to Chip and Theo go and visit Chip's mom like they talk about in the movie.

I love the Gay and Lesbian film category on Netflix because it had led to a gem like this film. I'm a sucker for understated movies and this one filled the bill perfectly. I just want to know the characters better. What got them into dancing? What about Katie's break-up? Cynthia's affair? This movie made my imagination run wild.

Generally, I'm a reader of most genres but romance is probably my favorite, especially the racier sort. I like all kinds of kinky stuff but what I like most of all is realistic sex and plenty of emotion and feelings. Humor is awesome and I love dialogue and communication. I do love my angst and misunderstanding and character-driven plot tension. I love AUs, even some of the most common ones.

While I do read dark fic, I'm quite picky about it and I like to be in control of such reading experiences. So I advise you not to go very dark. As for the dislikes, well, I only have one hard squick and that’s bloodplay. Also, while I do love kinks, I like to have some control over when I read most of the hard kinks. But still I'd rather like that you, the writer, write what’s right for the story, if you know what I mean.

My hope for the person who writes for me, is for them to have a lovely Yuletide experience and write something they love to write. I'm curious to see what I'll receive and I‘m confident that I'll love it to pieces. Should the writer want to ask anyone who know something about what I like and what I might not like, then sarka possesses that knowledge. Also, here's my tumblr in case that will be of help for you.

I wish you the best of Yuletides.

Yours etc.
