This is the post wherein I talk about Yuletide!

This year I got a fantastic fic, I See With My Eyes, in response to my prompt for Matrix fic dealing with trans* and/or genderqueer issues.  It approaches things in a very interesting way, and does so entirely with OCs, which is not something I'm usually huge on, but this fic does it very well.  It succinctly sculpts character and mood, and furthermore, was written at the last minute as a pinch hit, so go read! 

My own fic, which I may reveal as it is past the New Year, is this:

A Dream of Wind

A Peter Pan fanfiction, in which Mrs. Darling sorts through Mr. Darling's thoughts, and discovers the Neverland, amongst other Things.

I've wanted for aaaaages and ages and ages to write Peter Pan fic about Mr. Darling and Captain Hook, and this ended up being something else slightly to the left of that, but I am quite pleased with it nonetheless.

Also, thanks in part to [livejournal.com profile] earlwyn, and in part to the fact that the new Sherlock Holmes film came out last month, I am revisiting my love for Sherlock Holmes, and also have developed a mildly unhealthy obsession with Robert Downey, Jr.  I have been watching allllllll his films.  Even the bad eighties ones.  And the ones set in the court of Charles II that involve horrendous wigs.

Hello, dearest darlingest Yuletide writer of fabulosity!

Are you excited for Yuletide?  You should be.  I am excited for Yuletide.  A pre-emptive thanks for putting yourself out there to write me something, as is tradition.  I am all sorts of excited to see what you come out with, and am sure it will be excellent and fabulous. Here are ways, however, to make it even more awesome.

Things Wot Delight Me and Make Me Roll Around: Unique use of language and obscure/archaic words, historical accuracy, fiddly details, black humour, unconventional relationships, semi-colons, realistic and well-rounded depictions of queer characters, awkwardness, realistic dialogue, UST, kisses, literary and historical references, worldbuilding sneaky nods to canon, endings which are also beginnings, snark, banter.

Things What Harsh My Squee: Non-con/rape, poor spelling and grammar, characters behaving OOC-ly, or being dumb for purposes of the plot

details under the cutlet )

All of that said, if you already have a storm of ideas roiling around in your brain that have nothing to do with any of my rambling prompts, let them loose!  There is nothing quite so lovely as getting a fic for Yuletide that is something you never knew you wanted, but once written, is Everything You Ever Needed in a Fic.

If you have any further inquiries, I should direct you over to [livejournal.com profile] earlwyn, as we cohabitate in each other's brains.
