winter: (yuletide)
First of all, thank you to anyone who actually addresses my requests :) It's been a hard year, and thus all of the below are about my absolute favourite characters who triumph against adversity (well, except for St Just, but then I want a St Just that survives).

I read very widely - adventure, character studies, slice-of-life, comedy, mystery, drama, romance are all good. I love genderfluidity themes, meta and references to mythology and folklore, as well as the Takarazuka Revue. The only thing I very firmly won't read in stories is animal harm, though for this Yuletide I'd also ask you to scroll through any very graphic descriptions of violence and dismemberment, as well as graphic sex scenes and any descriptions of humiliating situations.

My AO3 name is Beth Winter (BethWinter).

I've been home for twelve hours. Good trip :)

I also have a severely aching arm. The new French collected edition of Rose of Versailles manga is awesome, but it's also phonebook-sized, and holding it up in one hand for two hours of flight was not a particularly bright idea.

(I acquired two of those thousand-page volumes. None of the three manga shops I tried had the third, but since that one' only about 500 pages, I can actually ship it from France.)

I wasn't terribly productive (especially next to [livejournal.com profile] fyrie with her 11 stories *swats*), but then rather than snowed in for a week, I was doing semi-regular 12-hour days at work while overseeing the ongoing renovations of my future flat. (All Christmas cards I got this year mention the renovations. Am I babbling about them that much?)

Oh, and my main stories were written by Herself *swats again* I guessed from Raindrops, because that's our Amidio and Thanatos in the flesh, but Gazing into the Abyss fooled me. No fair changing style on me :P

I also got a lovely treat from Skazka - a Sandman snippet from the ending.

Yuletide was fun as usual. And I love the Kudos feature - the "Like" button that's so easy to click!

With my assigned recipient, I had to stretch myself to write an Alfred story. I have no idea where I got that Alfred from!

I also promised one to [livejournal.com profile] windstar127, and writing a young Rosalie was fascinating - I'd like to do more either with her or characters like her, young and innocent. I write too many omnipotent dark warriors ;)

And speaking of which, the response to this fic - written because the recipient's Yuletide letter just resonated with me - kind of floored me. 88 comments and kudos, on a story that's all about women (five to three men, and all main characters) and all about the powers and the different kinds of queens.

YULETIDE

Recs later, because I'm still hyperventilating over my two gifts :D

Gazing into the Abyss - Archduchess Sophie and Death, and oh, a perfect arc for her, showing her strength and mind and emotion. (Also, I believe I spy a Japanese Death ♥)

Raindrops - Yes. That would be MY Oscar and Alain ♥ Fwee doesn't begin to describe it.

I like to think I'm a non-problematic Yuletide beneficiary - this year in particular I requested stories of the "anything with those characters will make me happy" variety. Optional details are optional!

Generally I prefer no mpreg, outright pornography (that is, clinical descriptions of actions without emotional content), humiliation or incest (see Sandman request for exception), and I firmly stay away from animal harm stories - if there is animal harm in the story, I will not read it at all. Apart from that, my tastes vary. Feel free to browse this journal to get a handle on the things I tend to recommend or write :)

Detailed requests - Sandman, Rose of Versailles, Vorkosigan Saga, Elisabeth )

I hope this suffices while not overwhelming, but should you want to know more, you can ask [livejournal.com profile] fyrie to relay your questions :)
