Hello, I’m [livejournal.com profile] polkad0tting (polkadot on AO3). Welcome to my little sports-crazy world!

Please don’t be worried about writing for me – I’m very easy to please. :)

I have lots of old letters from many different exchanges, so if you’d like more insight and/or ideas about what I enjoy (particularly in sports-fic), please do feel free to poke through them. I generally talk a LOT, because I am a chatty person and have lots of feelings, haha.

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.

Forward!

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. :)

So this Yuletide I wrote 6 stories, my assignment (for Maurice) and five treats (all Tennis RPF). I'm too lazy to make separate posts for them all, so here they are in a single big one! :)

Yuletide Stories, 2014 )
And then last night I was inspired by Jon on Twitter to write a little Rafa/Ferru ficlet, based on their telepathic exploits at the Doha players' party:

communication skills (872 words) by polkadot
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Tennis RPF
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: David Ferrer/Rafael Nadal
Characters: Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer
Additional Tags: Telepathy, First Time, #BlameJon
Summary:

The telepathy wasn't supposed to be real. Rafa's not at all sure he wants to share his weird brain with anyone else. Even if that someone is really hot and has a talented tongue.

:D I had a lot of fun writing for Yuletide this year. There were a lot of other neat tennis stories as well, so you should definitely check them all out if you haven't already! You can find them here (for the main Yuletide collection) and here (for the "shorter fic" Madness collection).

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you're enjoying the new tennis season. :)

Here we go, it's the Women's Tennis Primer! :)

Just in time to promote women's tennis for Yuletide - because you should definitely, definitely consider requesting and/or writing it. It's the best. (I may be biased.) Women's tennis seldom gets written, and yet it has all the elements for fantastic fic - amazing women, great sports narratives, close friendships (I refuse to use the word "sismance"), canon lesbians (including one with the cutest baby ever!), stirring rivalries, all sorts of different personalities, a wide range of body types (seriously, whatever your type, we've got you covered!), drama, glory, laughter, revenge - oh, and best friends who totally take you out to go bikini-sunbathing and dancing and drinking after your jerkass fiance dumps you over the phone the weekend your wedding invitations go out (the evilness!)

Now, I for one am extremely excited at the prospect of receiving and/or writing femslash for this fandom. Caro/Serena, bonding and falling in love (or having NSA sex) after Rory-the-douchebag dumps Caro? A five-times story with Aga and her flirtations & crushes? Laura & Genie being teenage girlfriends (whether or not this incorporates and/or is a fixit for their RL breakup)? Sam/Simmone long-term-relationship fic that has a lot of tennis and other Aussies and adventures? Vika & Maria adding frisson to their rivalry in bed? Vika & Laura bonding over their awesome braided hairstyles? Aga & Caro friends-to-lovers fic? SO MANY OPTIONS.

But even if you don't write/request femslash, or just aren't feeling it right now, there are plenty of opportunities for great gen stories as well! So many rivalries, so much tennis, and so many friendships. If you are into gen, this is totally a primer for you too! (And if you request it, I will probably, uh, gush all over you and write you a treat. Because you have no idea how excited I am about this fandom, lol. GIVE ME THAT WTA.)

Sorry, I'm far too longwinded! Moving on to the actual primer part now!

Disclaimer: First, I’m just one fan. My impressions of your favorite player may be different than yours – feel free to chime in on the comments and I’ll incorporate your thoughts! Second, I don’t know any of these players personally, and nothing is implied about their actual personalities, habits, or relationships (unless it’s part of the public record).

On to the primer! :)

Follow me! )
---

That's all, folks! Hope you've enjoyed this post! Enjoy Yuletide. :)

And feel free to talk to me in the comments! I adore this fandom, as I imagine you've gathered, and am always happy to talk about tennis femslash and/or the WTA in general. It's wonderful. <3

I wrote three fics this Yuletide! It was an awesome first official experience (I wrote a NYR last year).

Here they are!

Serbian Profanity for Fun and Profit (Tennis Edition) (1732 words) by polkadot
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Tennis RPF
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Novak Djokovic/Andy Murray
Characters: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Viktor Troicki, Jelena Jankovic, Jelena Ristic
Additional Tags: Copious Amounts of Profanity, Male Friendship, Banter
Summary:

“Dude,” Andy is saying, almost before Novak picks up the phone, “did you really tell the crowd to suck your dick?”

This was so much fun to write. I want to learn everything - everything - about Serbian profanity now. Thank you to the lovely anon from [livejournal.com profile] fail_fandomanon who helped me with the Serbian! And thank you to blindmadness, whose wonderful prompts were a joy to write for. :)

the unfair trade (1182 words) by polkadot
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Tennis RPF
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Juan Martin Del Potro/Novak Djokovic
Characters: Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin Del Potro
Additional Tags: Pining, Jealousy, happiness
Summary:

The thing is, Andy’s been kind of busy playing tennis.

This one was written on Christmas Eve with a couple glasses of wine. ;) I'd seen [livejournal.com profile] mardia's prompts earlier and loved them, but I'd been a bit intimidated by the Delpo part. (I've never written Delpo before.) Apparently all I needed to clear my writer's block was some Christmas cheer! I enjoyed writing this one too, although I feel a bit bad for Andy.

by firelight (1388 words) by polkadot
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Necromancer Chronicles - Amanda Downum
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Isyllt Iskaldur/Khelséa Shar
Characters: Isyllt Iskaldur, Khelséa Shar
Additional Tags: First Time, Female Friendship, Friends to Lovers
Summary:

Isyllt makes a discovery over a cup of jasmine tea.

PhoenixFalls was the person who introduced me to The Bone Palace, one of my new favourite books, so I knew I wanted to write her a fic to thank her. :) It's obviously not a canon I usually write for, but I really enjoyed it. Downum's world is so rich, and it was lovely to get the chance to explore it a bit. :) Thank you to Tamasin for the beta!

~

That's all I wrote! For my first Yuletide I think three fics are pretty decent, though.

I also got a very sweet gift. <3 The Holly Bears the Crown is a story about the fairies and Aurora having a joint Christmas/Yuletide celebration. I loved the sisterly interaction between the fairies, and how they celebrate both holidays in an attempt to keep Aurora connected to the parents she's missing. Thank you, shoroko!

DYW letter!

Helloooooo, writer! It’s Yuletide! It’s Yuletide!

This is my first time officially doing Yuletide, although I wrote a NYR last year as a way of dipping my toe into the ~Yuletide waters~. That made me even more excited about participating this year. And now it’s finally here! I hope I can make somebody happy and not give them coal - I will #trymybest (tm Rafa Nadal).

I don’t really know how to do this letter thing, but I’ll do my best. :) [Oh, and I'm polkadot on AO3, not polkad0tting, fyi.]

Like list
Basic: Gen, plus all kinds of pairings (slash, femslash, het).
In romance: Snark, fond teasing, zaniness, affection masked 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, pegging, incoherent noises, morning sex, non-penetrative sex (not in opposition to penetrative sex, just in addition), fingering for the sake of fingering not in preparation for anything else, wall-sex, 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.

Okay, fandoms time!

on to fandoms )

Thank you again for offering one of my fandoms, dear writer! I’m really looking forward to Yuletide. :)
