Hello, Yuletide Writer!

I
m Cinaed here, Tumblr, AO3, and pretty much everywhere except real life.

First off, thank you for participating! I hope you enjoy Yuletide this year and that you have fun with my requests.

As you may guess from glancing at my fandoms and potential prompts, I like gen and relationships of any variety.

Stuff I love includes but is not limited to: found families, epistolary/documentary, friends to lovers, hurt/comfort, pretend couples (that turn into real couples), friends with benefits, people showing their care and concern by feeding the other person, gardening, developing platonic or romantic relationships, fix-its, missing scenes, and future-fic.

 This year for Yuletide I received THREE fics!

bewitched, bothered & bewildered Twelfth Night - Shakespeare

Summary: Men are not a new sensation / I've done pretty well I think / But this half-pint imitation / Put me on the blink

Antonio in Illyria -- what led him there, and what took him away.

A Twelfth Night fix-it of sorts that includes Antonio/Sebastian and Viola/Olivia and was amazing. 

Sight Leaf by Niggle - J. R. R. Tolkien

Summary: After Niggle leaves, Parish waits.

An interesting look at the afterlife with Parish’s wife. I really liked what I saw of Niggle and Parish’s friendship in this! 

Letter To My Daughter Westmark - Lloyd Alexander

Relationships: Caroline/Torrens (Westmark)

The fix-it fic of my heart, set post-trilogy! And plus, I love epistolary stories and this one is so perfect.

Hello, Yuletide Writer!


First off, relax, and thank you for participating! I hope you enjoy Yuletide this year.

As you may guess from my requests, I like gen and relationships of any variety (het, femslash, slash, threesomes or moresomes).

Stuff I love includes but is not limited to: found families, epistolary/documentary, friends to lovers, hurt/comfort, pretend couples (that turn into real couples), friends with benefits, people showing their care and concern by feeding the other person, gardening, fix-its, missing scenes, and futurefic.

Stuff I don't want, unless otherwise stated in that particular request, is: infidelity/adultery, character death, and non-con/dub-con.

Below are my requests. I hope one of them works for you and that your Yuletide goes well!

Warning for spoilers for all canons behind the cut, for Westmark, Scrooge & Marley, Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, Twelfth Night, and Leaf by Niggle. )


cinaed: Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul (Marilyn Monroe)
I don't know what I did right this year, but I got SIX STORIES for Yuletide this year, and they were all amazing!

Heaven's coins is an amazing A Christmas Carol fic which is set post-canon, when Scrooge and Marley meet again as ghosts. Their prickly friendship is amazing here, and I loved where the author went with the idea of what happens after Scrooge dies. (1550 words)

The First Ghost is a melancholy A Christmas Carol drabble from Scrooge's POV post-canon but before he dies, and his thoughts on Marley and his suffering. I really also like the idea of how important Christmas would be for Scrooge every year afterwards, because of course it would be! (100 words)

Trompement is the 18th Century Fencers fic I didn't think ANYONE WOULD WRITE EVER, oh my god. It is a modern AU that takes on the first and last fencing matches between d'Eon and Saint-Georges. I loved how the author translated d'Eon's transition into modern day, and also Saint-Georges's life, and it's just an amazing story. (1657 words)

Hells and Paradoxes is a wonderfully intricate Doctor Faustus fic set post-canon, in which we see Faustus's very personal hell. The writing style in this story is beautiful, and I loved the concepts of hell in this story, along with everything about Mephistopheles and his interactions with Faustus. (1051 words)

Reflection is a lovely Man of La Mancha fic set post-canon, about Aldonza and Sancho on one of their adventures. It's also a slow romance between Aldonza and another tavern woman she meets, and it's just beautiful. I love Aldonza's voice in this, infected by Don Quixote's optimism but still clearly herself and more clear-sighted than he was. (1182 words)

Aldonza is a clever Man of La Mancha song, which takes "To Each His Dulcinea" and reprises it for Aldonza, who sings about "To each her Don Quixote" and now I am forever going to wish that reprise had happened in the show because it's great. (129 words)

Hello, Yuletide Writer!

First off, relax, and thank you for participating! I hope you enjoy Yuletide this year.

As you may guess from my requests, I like gen and relationships of any variety (het, femslash, slash, threesomes or moresomes).

Stuff I love includes but is not limited to: found families, epistolary/documentary, friends to lovers, hurt/comfort, pretend couples (that turn into real couples), friends with benefits, people showing their care and concern by feeding the other person, gardening, fix-its, missing scenes, and futurefic.

I'm not really into explicit sex scenes, but feel free to write one if you want. Stuff I don't want, unless otherwise stated in that particular request, is: infidelity/adultery, character death, and non-con/dub-con.

Hope that helps!

This Yuletide, I wrote two fic, one for my original recipient, and one as a Treat for a friend. I enjoyed writing both of them a lot, because a) undercover gay turned actual girlfriends is one of my favorite scenarios ever and b) writing for a friend and also writing an unusual type of story was challenging in a fun way (except for the Mercutio dialgoue, because Mercutio is the worst).

 So this year I wrote two stories for Yuletide! Once the collection opens on the 25th, you can guess which ones are mine. If you guess correctly, I will write you a drabble about anything you want (barring incest, non-con, and mpreg). Comments will be screened until the reveals. 

Some hints for my fics:

Both are between 1,000-5,000 words long.
Both are in fandoms I have never written in before.
One is a TV show fandom. The other is a musical fandom. 

I hope everyone who participated gets a great story and has a good Yuletide!

 Hello, Yuletide Writer!

First off, relax, and thank you for participating! I hope my requests make you smile rather than tear your hair out, ha. 

As for my likes and dislikes.... I like gen, het, slash, femslash, threesomes, so, uh, pretty much anything goes. I really enjoy watching relationships develop in a story or just seeing how characters interact. I also love banter when the characters are prone to it, people being devoted to each other despite differences, and just characters in general. I'm not really into explicit sex scenes, but feel free to write one if you really, really want to. My only squicks are non-con/dub-con, infidelity/adultery, and death fics, which, uh, I don't think anyone would be writing with my prompts, so you're safe, ha. Anyway, here's a bit more about each request!

Once again, thank you so much for participating!

...but this is just a mental reminder that I want to request Recess fic for Yuletide, since EVERY YEAR I tell myself I want an epic future fic where Spinelli is a spy, Gretchen is pretty much her Q, and everyone has adventures and EVERY YEAR I forget until January.

Yuletide!

Clues:

-Both are fandoms I've written before
-Both are over 2,000 words
-Neither are slash, but may be gen/het/femslash

Comments are screened. :)

Yuletide!

So, out of curiosity, how many of you are participating in Yuletide this year?

I've uploaded my original recipient's fic on Wednesday.

I've just started on a Treat, and have ideas for a second Treat if I finish this one today. We'll see. :)

How about you all? Writing Treats? Picked up a pinch hit? Relieved that you're done with your assignment and can relax until the 25th?

First off, relax, and thank you for participating! I hope my requests make you smile rather than tear your hair out. *laughs*

As for my likes and dislikes.... I like gen, het, slash, femslash, threesomes, so, uh, pretty much anything goes. My favorite things are banter and sarcasm, and I enjoy watching relationships develop in a story. I'm not really into explicit sex scenes, but feel free to write one if you really, really want to. My only no-nos are non-con, infidelity/adultery, character bashing, and death fics.

Again, I hope you have fun! Thanks for participating in Yuletide, and I hope you enjoy whatever fic you decide to write.

cinaed: I can whistle through my fingers, bulldog a steer, light a fire with two sticks, shoot a pistol with fair accuracy (Ann Sheridan)
I know I haven't talked about The Closer in forever, but it's one of the TV shows nearest and dearest to my heart. It ended this August, and I've been catching up on the last few eps of the series. I just finished 7x17, which was the yearly Provenza and Flynn case and...

Well, they've always been my OTP of the show, my old men OTP, but the show all but made it canon. I just-- there's no other way to interpret this ep. Here, taken from an AIM convo with a friend as I watched it:

**
**

Me: Aw, Provenza and Flynn, stop fighting. Although, lol, Provenza, you are the worst at dates. Flynn is a recovering alcoholic, do not invite him to a bar to watch you get drunk. Actual lines: "We could go to the bar." "What's in it for me?" "Watching me get drunk." "..."
Friend: ...
Me: Yeah.
Me: And Flynn's pissy because Provenza's ex-wife keeps calling
Me: I did not realize Flynn knew the ex-wife well enough to call her Liz, and to sympathize with her over her sick dog. And Flynn and Elizabeth are bonding over Provenza being exasperating.
Me: (Awww, Provenza still has feelings for his ex-wife. She was his first wife.)
Me: .........................................................................................
Me: ..........................................................................................
Me: Elizabeth just kissed Flynn on the cheek and said, "If you ever need to vent, we meet up every third Sunday." and when he goes, "We?" she goes, "Louie's ex-wives. We all call you the fifth one."
Me: .... *shrieks* Inviting someone to a bar and having them watch him drink IS Provenza's idea of a date!
Me: His ex-wife just leaned against him as they walked out and said, "Hey, if you want to later, I'll treat you to McClury's, sit at the bar and watch you drink."
Me: I just-- I what.
Me: Does that mean Provenza invited Flynn on a date and Flynn didn't get it? Provenzaaaaaa.
Friend: ....wow
Me: I don't know how else to interpret that
Friend: Neither do I
Me: He even used the same phrase at the beginning of the ep "watch me drink" as Elizabeth did at the end
Friend: And being seen as close enough to Provenza to be invited along
Me: *nods*

**
**

So...that happened.

I just-- Flynn was invited to join the Ex-Wives Club. And apparently "watch me drink" is Provenza code for a date.

Well. I...know what I want for Yuletide now. ALL THE PROVENZA/FLYNN FIC. And the Flynn and Elizabeth fic. And the Flynn and the Ex-Wives Club fic. And maybe some Provenza/Flynn/Elizabeth fic.

*waits impatiently for Yuletide*

 But I realized "The Lady Vanishes" is up on Hulu and 2011 is the second Yuletide I've forgotten to request this movie. Bad self! It is an awesome Hitchcock film with lady friendships, bemused cricket-mad Englishmen, conspiracies, a nice romance where the guy is a bit of a dork, and a very good plot. 

And also Garrow's Law. Right now I would read anything for Garrow's Law-- Will/Sarah! George/Luisa! More about that awesome freed slave helping to work behind the scenes to bring about the Anti-Slavery law of 1833! A post-two years fic for the gay men in 2x02! SO MANY FIC POSSIBILITIES. 
cinaed: Tough times don't last, tough people do, remember? (Gregory Peck)
This year I wrote two stories, one for my original recipient and the other for a pinch-hit. Both were a lot of fun to write.

My original story:

Variations on the Word Love (8868 words) by faviconCinaed
Fandom: Miss Madelyn Mack Detective - Hugh Cosgro Weir
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Madelyn Mack/Nora Noraker, Thorny Preston/Nora Noraker
Characters: Madelyn Mack, Nora Noraker, Thorny Preston, Original Characters
Summary:

Madelyn Mack had fully intended to leave her dear friend Nora Preston neé Noraker ensconced in the arms of matrimony. When threatening letters begin arriving at The Bugle, however, Madelyn, Nora, and Thorny find themselves drawn into yet another case.



I'll admit, when I saw who my recipient was this year, I rolled around laughing in delight and a little bit of panic for a few minutes. Melannen wrote ME a Madelyn Mack fanfic in 2009 and created a small fandom because she is just that awesome. (And her fic is just amazing, a Madelyn Mack/Sherlock Holmes crossover, with Madelyn/Nora and John/Sherlock and epistolary! Check it out: Silver Buttons All Down Her Back)

But this was a lot of fun to write-- I don't write a lot of stories with poly relationships, but the Madelyn/Nora/Thorny dynamic is *such* a poly one. And it was a lot of fun to create my own little case file.

My pinch-hit:

in this world of hope and risk (2196 words) by faviconCinaed
Fandom: Hanna (2011)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Hanna Heller/Sophie
Characters: Hanna Heller, Sophie (Hanna)
Summary:

Afterwards, Hanna searches and Sophie dreams.



This was a lot of fun to write. Hanna was one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen, and I loved Hanna and Sophie's dynamics-- they're both so *young.* After the movie, I desperately wanted them to have a happy ending together, and when I saw musesfool's awesome prompt, I knew I had to write it. :)

Yuletide!

This year for Yuletide I was spoiled with riches-- four stories, all absolutely wonderful!

You Make Me Feel Like Bobby Brown in the Early 90's (6162 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Parks and Recreation

Relationships: Donna Meagle/Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, Donna Meagle/Perd Hapley
Characters: Leslie Knope, Donna Meagle, Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, Ron Swanson, Ann Perkins, Tom Haverford, Perd Hapley, April Ludgate
Summary:

Even though it’s snowing, Jean-Ralphio’s got on a ridiculous v-neck beneath a blazer and as she watches, a flurry of snow lights on a curly q of chest hair, melts and disappears into his skin.

It takes almost that long for Donna to realize she’s staring.

Millions Will Weep (716 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Rod Allbright Alien Adventures - Bruce Coville
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Flinge "Snout" Iblik, Grakker
Summary:

It was perhaps the most difficult thing Grakker had ever done to approach Snout for help. Grakker was almost the top of his class – he didn’t ask for help from anyone, especially not a sissypants like Snout. If Grakker was going to ask someone for help, it should be someone like BKR – someone with a straightforwardly aggressive way of dealing problems. It certainly shouldn’t be someone as soft as Snout who tried to solve problems by thinking at them.

I wrote two fics this year, one for my original recipient and one as a pinch-hit. Both were in fandoms I'd never written in before and both stories contained femslash. I'm not sure if in the thousands of fics y'all would be able to guess which ones I wrote, but if you want to give it a try, by all means!

Note to self regarding next year's Yuletide.

This time remember to write down Yuletide possibilities rather than going in May, "Oh, I should ask for that!" and then forgetting it when it comes time for actual sign-ups.

Yuletide possibilities for next year:

-Red vs. Blue (Tex/Church! Grif/Simmons!)
-El Cazador de la Bruja (Ellis/Nadie adorable femslash!)

Dear Yuletide Writer,

First off, relax, and thank you for participating! I hope my requests make you smile rather than tear your hair out. *laughs*

My favorite things are banter and sarcasm, and I enjoy watching relationships develop in a story. I'm not really into explicit sex scenes, but feel free to write one if you really, really want to. My only no-nos are non-con, infidelity/adultery, character bashing, and death fics although if you're writing Dionysus/Ariadne, you can write about death-- the story has a happy ending, after all.

Anyway, here's a bit more about each request!
