winter: (yuletide)
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 :)
winter: (yuletide)
Sliding in under the wire on the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide rec train, just before the reveal :) Like before, Yuletide was a trip and a half this year. I was in a worse emotional state, but I managed, and I'll post about my stories after the reveal.

This year, I was exceedingly lucky - I got so many stories and treats!

Takarazuka RPF, Yami ga Hirogaru - Kacha and Asako during Elisabeth rehearsals, with Kacha catching a glimpse of the loneliness that Asako forged into her role. This is 100% my take on them, from which I conclude that my Santa is psychic. My Nanowrimo (which fell by the wayside because of the aforementioned events) had these two as main characters, and I could paste this scene into it with just changing character names ♥ Thank you for the telepathy, m'dear!

Takarazuka RPF, Father's Day with the Hapsburgs: A bonus story from my Santa - backstage hijinks and Kiriyan! Kiriyan being her wonderful self.

Babylon 5, The works of creation: Susan Ivanova in her youth, a series of snapshots of her growing up, and growing tougher and more beautiful.

Elisabeth, Do Not Be Afraid: I remain in love with this story. It's Death taking Little Sophie, who's such a Character in this one. And Death is kind, for a moment. ♥

Cinderella, PSA: And to finish it off, tiny Daily Mail article about the dangers of fairytales :D

Other recommendations:

Night Watch, Never be lost: This is exactly the story I asked for last year, Kay after the events of the book, and Kay being happy.

Tanz der Vampire, First Step: How Alfred falls into his story. Be sure to read the ending!

Elisabeth, Guiding Light: Rudolf and Death throughout Rudolf's life. The best parental take on it.

Arthurian Legend, The other way: Mordred and Galahad and making far too much sense ♥ I started writing a story for the same prompt, but couldn't finish in time - it might be a New Year's story....

Vorkosigan saga: The Rules of Barrayaran Sex: Perfectly in-character and exceedingly amusing. Cordelia is always love, and so is Aral and his socks.

Vorkosigan saga: Sworn in Silence: Aral's view of the moments just after his mother's and brother's deaths, a breathless chase and plot and a very poignant view of Piotr Vorkosigan.

 Sandman: Ink Space Lucien's view of the new Dream. It's just a little heartwrenching, and full of a quiet love.

Sandman, Recoil and Grace - an AU ending for Lucifer and Morpheus that makes far more sense than it should.

Discworld, A place called home - The rarest thing, a Discworld fic that does justice to the world and the characters, and a perfect Drumknott (and Vetinari) study.

Discworld, Wizard Muddle:  What happens in UU when Ponder goes on a vacation.

The Cable and Deadpool Yuletide Special: Epic. Just Epic. Read. Even if you have no idea who Cable and Deadpool are, because Deadpool is King of Backstory, thankyouverymuch
winter: (fandom - weaver of stories)
*looks at the last post and its 100+ comments, of which most aren't between myself and [livejournal.com profile] fyrie* I do write other things than vampires and Coldfire, you know. Alas, these are the weakest ones of today's batch...

Sandman, Death and Destruction )


OUATIM, Lorenzo and a stuffed toy )

BTW, drabble requests still open, with modifications. Namely, no vampires except maybe Underworld, and no Coldfire :P C'mon, people - Star Wars? Batman Begins? Tolkien? Anyone? Bueller?
winter: (Coldfire and mystery)
Look! [livejournal.com profile] fyrie drew brilliant fanart for my Krolock and Lestat fic! Go and marvel and tell her how good she is!

And since I'm almost finished with the fake-title meme (and the two bits that are yet to be written will get their own post), here are the best bits from that and the blather-about-characters meme, the ones I want to put on my site sometime:

The Dark River: Obi-Wan and Dooku )

Von Krolock and Dracula )

Sirius meta )

Dream and Thessaly, from The Sandman )


In other news, I managed somehow to sign up for a multi-fandom Dracula essay for [livejournal.com profile] idol_reflection. Due May 3rd, and for source material I'll probably use Prince of Many Faces and Dracula: The Dark Prince for historical Vlad, Bram Stoker, Murnau's Nosferatu if I can get it (Herzog's if I can't), Dracula 2000 as an example of a BAD vampire movie, Van Helsing and The Historian. Anything else you think I should include in my ravings on why Dracula freaking rocks?

The second batch of St Nick’s request not-really-drabbles. 480 words about Hob Gadling for [livejournal.com profile] xwingace, 658 words about Sirius Black’s mother of all people for [livejournal.com profile] amamiyarin. Next up: vampires and more vampires, because I still have to polish up [livejournal.com profile] arabwel’s vignette.


Sandman’s Hob Gadling gets a little Christmas spirit )




Tom Riddle and the Hogwarts Express )
winter: (Default)
There should be more, but my eyes hurt, I've studying to do and an extra cat to keep an eye on. Meh.

4 Kingdom of Heaven, 3 House of Flying Daggers, 4 quasi-Sandman, 3 random crack )

Comment, credit, the usual kit&kaboodle. I'll try to have more funny ones soon...

After watching Constantine, I'm re-reading Hellblazer and Lucifer is next on my list. Ergo, iconses. I'm particularly proud of the "I'm going to EAT your BRAIN" one :D

5 Constantine, 5 Hellblazer, 3 Lucifer and 2 Gaiman )
