fangirlism: (Christmas. :D #3)
First of all, thank you so much for writing a story just for me! It's pretty awesome, given the nature of this fest.

My generalities really didn't change between last year and this year.

What I Like
kid!fic (as in, the characters have kids, not the character are kids - toddler age is perfect), crushes/beginning of relationship (the concept of the feelings coming to fruition and both parties going, "WTF is going on? Why am I acting this way around him/her?" is one of my favorite fandom tropes), smut is always good, flirting.

What I Don't Like
Incest, bestiality and molestation are my only three sexual squicks, fandom has desensitized me to everything else. Character bashing. Yes, I'm generally a slasher but that doesn't mean I hate the female (or in the case of a femslash ship, male) characters (or, if I do, it's for reasons unrelated to "I ship his/her love interest with his/her best (fe)male friend and s/he gets in the way of the gay sex"). On that note, I also hate when writers completely disregard canon pairings. As much as I don't want them to, they exist. If you're gonna break them up, let us know how it happened. Please.

And now onto my specifics!


Requested Fandom #1: Eureka, Fargo/Holly
These two are the ultimate geeky couple, and my love for them knows no bounds. A fic showing off their geekyness would be awesome!

THESE TWO! My boyfriend introduced me to Fargo/Holly by telling me they reminded him of us, and me, being a shipper, was addicted. They are the perfect geeky couple and just, gah! They play D&D, for Pete's sake! And Holly is played by the one of the ultimate geek girls, Felicia Day (who I now adore). I love them, they love each other, and a fic of their love would be, well, love. (And surprisingly, "love" still looks like a word.)


Requested Fandom #2: w-inds., Keita/Ryohei
Something set during the MLT tour, or maybe a soccer AU?

Oh look, it's a year that's divisible by two, so it's time for me to request w-inds. fic. Anything you come up with will make my day. These two are so cute it hurts.


Requested Fandom #3: Ben 10, Ben/Kevin
Ben and Kevin drag race, winner chooses prize

I've recently decided to finish what I started and actually watch these series (I was originally watching Alien Force as it aired, and had to stop), and I was reminded what I loved about it the first time. Ben is a badass, Kevin is a badass, and well... slash goggles go on when it comes to Ben and Kevin. But! This prompt doesn't have to be all about the slash. They are still two teenaged boys with some pretty badass cars, so this could go anywhere.


Requested Fandom #4: Men in Black, Jay/Kay
The day Kay recruited Jay wasn't the first time they met, far from it, Jay just doesn't realize it because he was neurolyzed every other time.

So, I watched MIB3 recently, and after <spoiler>it was revealed the General's son that shows up toward the end of the movie was baby!Jay</spoiler>, this plot bunny came to rest inside my head and likes the food, or something. It won't go away. This doesn't have to be inherently slashy, but if it goes that way I won't be upset.

And now onto my specifics!



Requested Fandom #1: Entourage, Vince/Eric
I would love a fic where these two finally realize the reason they are totally co-dependent on each other (which would be, well, that they're in love with each other.)

I seriously just picked this series up earlier this year, and I've been trying to find the time to mainline it (I've gotten through season 1 and part of season 2). Yet, despite not being all the way through the series, I have fallen in love with it, for quite a few reasons:

1. It's borderline RPF not only because we're writing about actors in Hollywood living their lives in Hollywood, this is what happens when Mark Wahlberg writes a self-insert fic and changes the names.
2. As you can judge from my request: VINCE/ERIC. Okay, seriously. These two. They are so MFEO that HBO ships them. So I would love where all the subtext (so much subtext, thick like a fog!) comes to a head and we get them falling for each other.



Requested Fandom #2: Coffee Prince, Eun Chan/Han Gyeol
Okay, I would be over the moon if you wrote Eun Chan/Han Gyeol with genderswapped Eun Chan, but I understand that's not everyone's cuppa, so playing them straight (no pun intended) would be fine with me too.

Okay, one of the things that I love love love about this series is the pseudo-canon slash. My dream fic would involve the pseudo-slash become straight up slash with a male!Eun Chan. HOWEVER, I realize that genderswap is one of those things that you either love with every fiber of your being or loathe with the fire of a thousand suns, so by all means, you don't have to go for the genderswap/slash. Other possible plot bunny, if you'd like: Han Gyeol being amazed by (and later encouraging) Eun Chan to be less tomboyish and more girly.



Requested Fandom #3: Kisarazu Cat's Eye, Kohei "Bussan"/Futoshi "Bambi"
I keep trying for these two, on the off chance there is someone else in the world who has seen this drama writing. I'll take ANYTHING at this point.

And I mean it. I haven't requested these two since my first Yuletide, because I had given up on them for the most part, but this year I'm trying again. I'm even repeating what I had said that year: I meant when I said fic for this fandom is few and far between. But I'll get specific just for you. AU, please please! Particularly something where <spoiler>Bussan isn't dead, maybe not even sick</spoiler>, cause if you try to write canon, well you're pretty limited to the canon timeline, and that's no fun. Including baseball is almost required, because of the canon.



Requested Fandom #4: Sunao ni Narenakute, Keisuke "Nakaji"/Kaoru "Linda"
Two words: Alternate ending. These two both got SCREWED in canon (Linda especially), and I need fix-it fic for my own sake.

Let's face it: The ending to this series sucked, and needs to be ignored and rewritten. Nakaji got no redemption as a character, and Linda? Well... he got the worst ending ever. You don't even have to have them end up together (though doing so would be a huge bonus), but just something where Nakaji isn't a total pretentious douchebag and Linda gets treated as somewhat human would be awesome and I would love you for it.

First of all, thank you so much for writing a story just for me! It's pretty awesome, given the nature of this fest.

My generalities really didn't change between last year and this year (except my newfound love of femslash. That's new).

What I Like
kid!fic (as in, the characters have kids, not the character are kids - toddler age is perfect), crushes/beginning of relationship (the concept of the feelings coming to fruition and both parties going, "WTF is going on? Why am I acting this way around him/her?" is one of my favorite fandom tropes), smut is always good, flirting, I'm on an AU kick this year, but you don't have to write one if you don't want to. I'm good with canon fics too.

What I Don't Like
Incest, bestiality and molestation are my only three sexual squicks, fandom has desensitized me to everything else. Character bashing.

Requested Fandom #1: w-inds., Keita/Ryohei
I love these two so much! Anything you want to write is awesome!

Okay, so these two are under loved, both in general and in w-inds. fandom (which, while pretty much dead in the fanfic respect, was mostly RyoRyu back in the day). Not only do they have the "being bandmates" thing, they have the soccer thing they both love (and if you want to make an AU where they're soccer players, that'd be cool too! My request for them two years ago was for a soccer AU).



Requested Fandom #2: Ben 10, Ben/Kevin
Trying this one again: Timeskip? Ben's 21st birthday? Kevin tries to take advantage of Ben and can't?

This is the exact same request I made last year, but I really wanna see it! I think drunk!Ben would be totally awesome (and allows for them to be aged to adults). I chose 21 because I assume the show takes place in the United States (if you find information that says otherwise, go ahead and change the ages.) I can see Kevin totally trying to use the situation to his advantage, and failing because the "good guy" in him takes over. Hangover nursing optional but would be loved!



Requested Fandom #3: Scott Pilgrim (comic!verse), Scott/Wallace
Wallace comes to terms with a lot of things, one of them being Scott Pilgrim.

I am one of those who screams, "THEY SHARE A BED!!! HELLO!!!" *cough* Anyway, I can see all of that coming to a head, and Wallace attempting to sleep with Scott. You can make this one sided and have Scott reject it, or you can go ahead and write them hooking up.



Requested Fandom #4: Kaleido Star, Sora/Layla
We're dealing with two very flexible women here. Take that as you will.

I know how I'd take that, but... *cough* This could be anything. A training session, a who's the most flexible contest, femslash, pre-femslash, gen. I don't care.

I'm going to try very, very very hard to just use this account for fandom related stuff (because the username "fangirlism" is just so perfect for that!) and use my LJ for other stuff.

Stuff might be crossposted to LJ, but that'll be the exception, not the rule.

So I was originally gonna do one giant thought process post on the 6th once I Saw Three Ships stories went live and Make The Yuletide Gay authors were revealed, but that was back when I was planning on doing this on LJ. Now that I'm switching it up, I don't mind pseudo spamming this week.

Soooooo... I actually only wrote one story this year. I wrote The Three Not-So-Gifts of the Devil (Reaper, PG-13, gen, 1768 words) for [livejournal.com profile] sock_me_amadeus, and with what a pain in the neck this story was, I'm not surprised I didn't write any others (the fact I had two other exchanges to juggle didn't help either.) Anyway, I needed to write an in-character (season 1 canon only) fic with a Sock and Ben focus to the prompt "the three souls at Christmas." The prompt helped me wonders (except for one thing that I'll get to later), because I was given a "no smut" clause, and the prompt lent for a longer story.

It was the "focus on Sock and Ben" and "keep them in character" parts that proved tough.

For people who don't know the canon, the characters I was assigned are supporting cast. The story revolves around their best friend, he's the big hero. How do I "write him out" so the other two get the focus. I threw ideas back and forth (thanks forever and a day to [livejournal.com profile] steelneko, who was my idea bouncer/handholder), but nothing was working, until I got the idea of having this canon plot device that does exactly what I needed it to while also working well with the story plot/canon.

The other big issue I had to idea bounce was, exactly, who the three souls would be, and how could I relate them to Christmas. The first one ("Rosalie Lunsford") came to me fairly easy. The second ("Dewitt Bolliger") just hit me one day and I ran with it. The third ("Jim Solorzano")... oh I was ready to kill him a second time myself. I had such a hard time figuring out who he was and what he did and how was I ever gonna connect that to Christmas. I may have flubbed the science on Solorzano's quite a bit, but it's fiction, so I'm allowed.

I'm not 100% proud of this story. For a first try in a new fandom, it's alright, but I could have done so much better.
fangirlism: (OTP! :D And such)
There will only be a part the second. I was gonna wait, and have these all done at once after the 3 Ships archive opened, but I realized that would mean it would be done after the artist/author reveals at Yuletart, Yuletide, and MtYG, and I wanted to do this during the anonymous period.

So, since the 3 ships archive opening coincides with the MtYG author reveals, I'll amend the squee post for that to my author/artist musings post for the other challenges.

And, without further ado...

I'll post about them in the order I received them.

First, Yuletart. I received "Best of Friends" (The Listener, G, gen, digital drawing). This was posted on a day I really needed something to cheer me up, and boy did this ever cheer me up! I really didn't get a chance to post a coherent comment because I was too busy squee-ing. First off, if you have ever seen the show (I don't believe I have any Listener fen added... yet), how spot on are Craig (Toby) and Ennis (Oz)?! I mean, they're in the artist's style, but it was very clear, to me, it was Craig and Ennis. Second off, this is totally in character for Toby and Oz, to be buddy-buddy like this! Third off, the artist? Really, really talented!

Second, MtYG. I received "Christmas Wishes Come True" (popslash, PG to PG-13, slash [Chris/AJ and hinted Brian/Nick], 1263 words). Okay. Wow. This one was a shock to me, mostly because it's the first year my writer hasn't gone the Brian/Nick route (they tried though, with a couple of lines that did make me smile). But the fic totally makes up for that by being mpreg (why yes, I am one of those who is totally not squicked by that, and in fact loves it to death)! It's a kink actually done in popslash quite a bit, but never before in a story just for me! :D

Last (for now), Yuletide. I received "Aqueous Transmission" (The Listener, PG, slash [Toby/Oz], 2285 words). I was so excited when I guessed that I was getting Listener fic this year for Yuletide, because I wanted a fic for that fandom more than any other! And not only did I get Listener fic, I got my Toby/Oz mind reading fic! It was exactly perfect, with Toby (ab)using his powers to tap into Oz's head and realize there were romantic feelings there, and it didn't get too graphic, their little cuddling scene was more than enough for me! :D
