Dear Yuletide Author,

I love you! I'm not just saying that. Thank you for participating in Yuletide. I have been on Livejournal for quite a few years and, every holiday, my entire flist EXPLODES with chatter and excitement about Yuletide. I have always been too intimidated/afraid to participate, but I took the plunge two years ago, and the only thing I regret is not joining sooner.

I love Yuletide. I love writing. I love /you/. So, thank you: Thank you for diving face first into rare fandoms. If there's one thing the holiday season means to me, it's knowing that people are creating and sharing and having fun. Please. PLEASE have fun.

But enough about you, this is my post. About me. My favorite person. (I hope you read that with all due sarcasm.)

Since you've been volunteered to write for me, there are some things you may like to know: I love cheesy humor and unresolved sexual tension. I adore really horrible puns and punch lines that you can see a mile away. I revel in depth and angst, however, and those little moments where fics and fandom reach into your chest and rip out your heart -- those are the best. I also love reading something so subtle and/or deep that I have to sit up and re-read the story for a better perspective.

I find myself attracted to morally grey characters: pirates, smugglers, crime lords, thieves, bounty hunters, assassins, gamblers, etc.. If you don't feel comfortable focusing on a particular character, I would love to see a fresh take on the series: how does Paradigm City fair when their heroes are genderbent? I also love off-the-wall character introspection and slice of life: what's it like for Nathan Drake to go grocery shopping? I'm also a HUGE fan of personification, so if you want to write a fic from the perspective of Axton's Turret, I'm totally game. Hit me.

On the other hand, I am NOT a big fan of sappy romance or self-pity. I may actually be allergic to both. Hives, even. Don't get me wrong: I love pairings: platonic, canon, and crack! I love it when a character bends over backward for his or her partner. I even enjoy PWP, slash, and multi fics! But hate it when a character incessantly whines.

And with that, I wish you luck!

I really hope this helps! Please remember: these are OPTIONS, not demands! I will love anything and everything you decide to share.

And, if you have any questions, feel free to leave anonymous bits in my Tumblr Ask Box.
