Dear Yulegoat -- Yuletide 2012 (whoo!)

Hello, fellow Yulegoat! Thank you again for volunteering for this momentous undertaking. I'm so glad that we were paired up, and I am grateful that you've gifted me with your talent and time this yuletide. You are fantastic and a big damned hero in my eyes. Many cheers!

In general: I'm really up for anything. I mean, I read the Care Bears BDSM fic and was more amused than squicked. Death!fic can be okay, fluffy slice of life fic can be okay. AU crossover fic, well, then we need to talk. I just ask for good fic, for the characters to be loved and treated well, and for you to have fun with this. Thank you for my wonderful gift, Yuletide Wonderperson. The fact that you signed up for one of my fandoms makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and I love sharing this fandom with you.

So, in terms of fandoms:


Dark is Rising - Bran Davies

One of the reasons why I love Bran is because he's an outcast both in terms of where he's growing up (rural Wales) and in terms of Time. The valleys around Cader Idris are isolated and lonely, and I'd love to know what it was like for Bran to grow up there, especially not quite fitting in. Did he have some sense of Destiny or feel even more out of place than most adolescents? Why did he go out of his way to affect such an 'outsider' persona? Would there have been a difference if Bran had grown up in another place/time/with other people and does he think about that? I'm not asking for an AU, or even something pre/post series. I'd love to see some kind of introspection on Bran's part -- or even from Owen or John's part -- on this strange child they've all raised. I'm up for slash (Will/Bran) or gen fic, as long as it focuses on Bran in some way.

Young Wizards - Carmela, Nita and Kit

I love Carmela and the role she's been taking on in the YW books. I know she won't be a wizard, but the fact that she's still going to do something with the Art in a non-wizardly role is awesome. This fic doesn't have to be post Wizard of Mars, but I'd love to see how Carmela and Nita and Kit interact on a day to day basis. We get some lovely moments in the books, but they always seem like they're in times of crisis. I don't need shippy things necessarily, but I'd love to see how Carmela deals with this strange new world of wizardry and a universe that is literally at her (closet) doorstep. Is she taunting Nita and Kit about their relationship? Is Nita comforting Kit over Carmela's growing proficiency in some aspect of the Art? Are they bonding somehow over dealing with parents and the sudden need to rush off in the name of the Oath or just an adventure? I'd love to see how Carmela's relationships have shifted -- with her parents, with her siblings, with Nita and Dairine. Hell, even with Ronan. :)

Protector of the Small - Keladry

The moment that made "Squire" for me was the tournament when Kel met three potential female pages. We get a huge sense of the loneliness that Kel felt as she did her page and squire training -- how would she try to rectify that for the next generation of female knights? Kel is one of my favorites because she wasn't god-touched, she worked her ass off to complete her knight's training. I'd love to see how she inspired this drive in other girls and how she might interact with some of those next-gen female pages.


Thank you again, Yuletide Wonderperson. You've made my year by sharing my love of fandom, and I'll be forever grateful to you.
