Dear Yuletide Author,

Give me a second. Since you're anonymous, I can't hug you or bake you cookies, but I think we can agree on one thing: EEE. YULETIDE!

I just want to say that I'm incredibly honored that you're donating your time and energy into writing a story Yuletide. I really don't care how many prompts you hit or how well it fits the suggested themes so much as how much fun you partake in the project. I really hope you enjoy Yuletide as much as I do.

That being said, you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't want to know a little more about your assignment. There are some things you should know about me: I like fics with cheesy humor and unresolved sexual tension. I love really horrible puns and punch lines that you can see a mile away. I also love depth and angst, however, and everyone can use a good cry. 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., Even if you don't feel comfortable focusing on a particular character, I would love to see something about their environment: what's your take on the Star Wars Underground? 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 Viridiana's favorite hair-tie, I'm game.

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, 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!

Star Wars: X-Wing Series
(Wes Janson, Booster Terrik, Mirax Terrik, Squeaky)

Wes Janson is my soul mate. I love his humor, his smile, his cheesy sense of romance, and his fierce loyalty to his friends. Anything, absolutely anything, involving Wes Janson will make my day. If you want someone for him to play off of, I absolutely adore the Wes/Hobbie pairing. I'm up for anything, though. I love character building, puns, UST, cheese, crack, anger, angst, fight scenes, and watching paint dry. Honestly.

My favorite part about the Expanded Universe, aside from the snarky pilots, are the pirates and smugglers. I absolutely adore the dynamic between Mirax and Booster Terrik. I think the world would be a better place with a daddy/daughter heist fic.

Or, here's an idea: five times Wes hit on Mirax and she punched him in the face. I'm telling you. I'm wide open.

And, of course, Squeaky makes it on the list for being Squeaky. The down-on-his-luck emancipated droid. I would love a slice of life for Squeaky. How does he make money? How does he pay for rent? How do you cope with being a rusting immortal? Is he jealous that he can't imbibe alcohol? Cocoa? Get a tattoo? How good of a wingman is he at the bar? Is he secretly a super hero?


The Night Angel Trilogy - Brent Weeks
(Durzo Blint, Gwinvere Kirena, Viridiana Solvari)

I adore Durzo Blint. I love his hard edged self, his sneaky self, his charming self, his bitter self, his out-right nerd self, his romantic self... Well, you get the point.

I could read an entire series based solely on Durzo and have requested it on many occasions.

I think the relationship between him and Momma K is priceless and romantic, so I'd love to see anything revolving around them.

I also adore Viridiana. She struck me as whiny and lost but she blossomed into a fantastic and memorable character. She's very complex and I would LOVE to see something revolving around her life as a wetboy, or even something much more mundane, like what sort of silly romance novels she reads in her off time.

I'm not a big fan of Kylar, but I would be just as tickled to read something revolving around Viridiana and Kylar's fate together, as well.


(Nathan Drake, Victor Sullivan)

I absolutely adore the Uncharted series. I wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up, so this fresher, more modern version of the genre was love at first sight.

I have the biggest crush on Nathan Drake, so you can do no wrong with any witty/silly/funny story revolving around him. I thrive on the film noir heists and zany adventures and he's always in the midst of one.

I also absolutely adore the relationship between Nate and Sully, so if you'd like to explore that aspect of the series, I would love you forever.

I'm also completely open to an entire fic revolving around Sully himself, with or without Drake. My friends spent the entirety of last evening barraging my twitter feed with jokes and jabs about Sully's mustache and, to be quiet honest, it was most bizarre and flattering time I've had in months.

As far as the ladies: I love Chloe and Elena equally, so I wouldn't complain if you wanted to throw in either of them for variety.


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