Hello! :) I’m really excited about Yuletide this year. I hope you are too! You’re already my new favourite person for volunteering to write one of my fandoms. If we share one of these fandoms, you are wonderful & awesome & everything lovely. Please don’t be worried about writing for me – I’m very easy to please and I will be ecstatic for pretty much any fic about one of my fandoms. <3

First, basics, and then on to the fandoms!

Like list
(I give specific ideas/details for fandoms/ships below, but anything from this list would also be awesome!)
• Basic: Friends-to-lovers, falling in love, comfortable established relationships filled with affection and in-jokes, couples kicking butt together and saving the world/the universe/the day (and then picking up the drycleaning on the way home), people knowing each other really well, banter, emotional support, space!, worldbuilding (some of my favorite questions: how does that thing work? what are its ramifications? what are some things the original canon POV might have overlooked?), politics and diplomacy, running countries, plans, plans that don’t go according to plan, working together and using different strengths.
• In romance: Snark, banter, fond teasing, zaniness, affection laced with humor, snuggling in bed, people in love who enjoy spending time together but aren’t codependent.
• In porn: Kissing, exploring a partner’s body, unexpected erogenous zones, talking during sex, sex that doesn’t go quite right but they run with it and make it awesome anyway, incoherent noises, morning sex, well-developed biceps and shoulders, fingering for the sake of fingering not in preparation for anything else, wall-sex, multiple orgasms, laughter.

Squick list
Basic: Infidelity, bullying of any kind, cruel jokes, noncon, dubcon, incest, bestiality, underage.
In romance: Gaslighting, too much neediness, characters who are in love but don’t seem to really like each other very much, A/B/O.
In porn: Someone kissing their partner after rimming them without washing their mouth out first, bad dirty talk, not checking in/being sure of their partner’s comfort and pleasure.



fandom number one

Poirot - Agatha Christie
Requested Character: Felicity Lemon

I want to see the whole Poirot operation from Miss Lemon's point of view! What does she think of her employer? His cases? Hastings? The little grey cells? Poirot's eccentricities with regards to drink/cuisine/etc.?

I would love to read about Miss Lemon solving a mystery on her own. Maybe it's a big mystery that she has to solve because Poirot & Hastings are away on a case, and now there are strange/surreal things happening to a friend of hers. Or maybe it's a small personal mystery, like why after twenty years of not bothering with unimportant things like romance, she suddenly finds herself with a massive crush on the librarian who came to Poirot last month to find her missing brother.

OR you can write anything that takes your fancy. :D


fandom number two

Nero Wolfe - Rex Stout
Requested Character: Fritz Brenner

Just like in Miss Lemon's case, I want to see the Nero Wolfe operation from Fritz's point of view! :D What does he think of Wolfe and Archie and their cases? Either in general, or in a particular case. (I think I've read all the books, and like them all, so pick any one to set a fic/drawing in!)

Somehow I can't see Fritz falling in love, so this should probably be gen. I'd love to read about a day in his life, with his primary job of cooking being interrupted off and on by the folderol in Wolfe's office (and by the occasional need for him to answer the door if Archie's out on business). Or perhaps a five-times fic, with whatever theme you like! (Five times Fritz had to answer the door when Archie was away, and one time Wolfe answered it himself/one time nobody was allowed to answer it? Five times Fritz made phenomenal dinners despite all distractions, and one time he regrettably burned the pudding? Five times Fritz was unflustered by a visitor, and once he lost his cool? SO MANY OPTIONS!)

OR you can write anything that takes your fancy. :D


fandom number three

Call the Midwife
Requested Characters: Delia Busby, Patsy Mount

Uh, so. I want one thing – fix it for me? Please?!

This doesn’t have to mean that you rewrite the amnesia (although I would totally love that fic). You could just erase the crash entirely if you liked! I would love a story about Patsy & Delia and their adventures. I adore the canon, so if you wanted to set a Patsy/Delia fic into a casefic, that would be amazing. Or perhaps a five-times fic, with whatever theme you like! (Five times Patsy came home late, and one time they stayed in together? Five times Delia burnt dinner, and one time she kept it simple? Five times Patsy and Delia almost told someone about their relationship, and one time they did? Five times Patsy and Delia almost said ‘I love you’, and one time they did? SO MANY OPTIONS!) Or I'd love to read a fic about a day in their lives. :)

OR you can write anything that takes your fancy. :D I will love any fic that has Patsy & Delia together and does not have a fuckin’ car crash and amnesia.


fandom number four

Tennis RPF
Requested Characters: Stanislas Wawrinka

(NB: This fandom section is long because there are more potential characters. I love all the fandoms I've asked for, don't worry!)

Okay, first of all, let me just say two things. ONE: I love Stan a ridiculously large amount, which is why he’s the character I’ve requested. (Also he is my fandom bicycle.) You can’t go wrong writing me a fic about him (well, unless you bash him, I guess). TWO: I love tons of characters in the tagset (see list below). Feel free to write about Stan with any combination of the players on my list, or even to choose something from my ‘general tennis likes’ and write about another character/pairing (maybe put Stan in the background somewhere to make Yuletide happy).

List of tagset characters I would enjoy reading about:
(WTA) Azarenka, Bencic, Bouchard, Keys, Mauresmo, Mladenovic, Morrow, Pennetta, Petkovic, Radwanska, Robson, Sharapova, Stosur, Vinci, Serena & Venus, Wozniacki
(ATP) Brown, Djokovic, Fognini, Goffin, Kohlschreiber, Kokkinakis, Kyrgios, Monfils, Murray, Nadal, Norman, Paire, Pospisil, Sock, Tsonga

I am also totally up to reading about non-tagset characters, with the following exceptions:
No retired players (unless previously mentioned), no homophobes/sexists (Dolgopolov, Stakhovsky, Tipsarevic, Llodra, Simon), no Federer (because he has soooo much fic already, lol). Other than that, go wild!

OKAY, preliminaries through -

Tennis! I like tennis a lot. I love the sport, all its nobbly bits and strategy and head-games and breathtaking moments, a good backhand down the line and a fearsome cross-court forehand. I love Sam Stosur's biceps, and Rafa Nadal’s back muscles, and Laura Robson's zaniness. I love the umpires, and bad dropshots, and ice-bath pictures with a friend, and underdogs and rivalries, and the sense that most of these athletes are pretty decent people, on the whole.

Things I would be interested in reading about, in no particular order:
** A character plays doubles (either with another requested character or one of your choice) and there's a lot of laughter and banter.
** A slice of tour life, and how a relationship with another player (either friendship or romantic) would fit into the rhythms of the tour; the pull between on-court competitiveness and off-court closeness.
** Strength and athleticism in bed as a major turn-on, especially for women. [NB: Femslash only for Sam, Simmone, Serena, Caro, and Amélie please, though not necessarily with each other (you can pick their partner).]
** Teenage romances on tour (18+, and please no big age gaps - I know Stan & Donna are together, but I don't want to read fic about that.)
** Locker-room pranks, shenanigans, tricks, goofing-off, etc.
** Rivals having to figure out what it means that they keep falling into bed together.
** Getting walked in on by another player (whether kissing in the locker room, or having a hotel roommate come home early & walk in on more involved activities).
** Bets made on matches - not monetary, but forfeits (if gen) or sex bets (if romantic).
** How did a couple first get together?
** Coming-out fic (to friends, to the tour, to the public, whatever level)
** Five-times fic (five times x lost to y, and one time he won; five times c caught herself staring at d, and one time she let d see her looking; five times k pranked l, and one time l got her own back; five times r & s got interrupted before they got around to having sex, and one time they weren't; etc.) I am a sucker for this format. The different times can be quite short vignettes if you like.

OR you can write anything that takes your fancy. :D With the exception of the players I ruled out, I am game for pretty much anything and everything!


I think that’s about it! :) Thank you so much for volunteering to write for one of my fandoms! I’m really, really excited. I love them all, and I love you for writing for me! <333 Happy Yuletide. :)
