2016 Dear Yuletide Letter

Thank you for writing for me! I'm sorry it's taken me this long to post the letter. If you already have a story idea, awesome. I'm sure I'll love it. If you're looking for more input on my story preferences, here goes.

I have a very broad range of enjoyment when it comes to stories. I like slash (both dudes and ladies), het and gen. I'm into reading explicit sex if you're into writing it, but all ratings are good. I love relationship stories that show the deepening sense of intimacy between two people, whether it's a romance or a friendship. I also adore plotty stories, casefiles, action/adventure, future fic, backstory, and my great love for fan fiction cliches never dies! I appreciate angst in a story, especially if the source material really calls for it, but I also enjoy when a story ends on a hopeful note.

A few things I'm not really into are: non-con, excessive violence, and gore.

More details ahead... )

Dear Yuletide Author

Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you for writing for me! I'm very excited about all the fandoms I requested. You have great taste for offering one of them. :)

Here's some general stuff about my story preferences:

I have a very broad range of enjoyment when it comes to stories. I like slash (dudes and ladies), het and gen. I'm into reading explicit sex if you're into writing it, but all ratings are good. I love relationship stories that show the deepening sense of intimacy between two people (or a group of people if the fandom is Sense8), whether it's a romance or a friendship. I also adore plotty stories, casefiles, action/adventure, future fic, backstory, and my great love for fan fiction cliches never dies! I appreciate angst in a story, especially if the source material really calls for it, but I also enjoy when a story ends on a hopeful note.

A few things I'm not really into are: Non-con (although I don't mind dub con), crossovers, and gore.

More details ahead... )

Of course, my suggestions are just that...suggestions. Write the story that speaks to you, and I'm sure it will speak to me too.

The Totally Not Comprehensive Sid/Geno Primer

This primer is for [personal profile] no_detective who wanted to read some Sid/Geno stories. I linked her to the primers that got me into the fandom, especially this one by [personal profile] pun: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin mini primer. But they are all several years old now, and I felt like there really needed to be an update.

As the title says, this is not remotely comprehensive, just a little window into the characters and pairing as of the now, and of course it's all my opinion. YMMV! Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Here we go… )

Catching up on Yuletide

I can't say that I really make New Years resolutions, but I would like to take more of an active part in DW/LJ this year. So I thought I'd start with Yuletide.

This year I was very spoiled with two wonderful stories:

Zo (1172 words) by lalejandra
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Woman on the Edge of Time
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Original Character
Additional Tags: Depression, Time Travel, Pre-Canon
Summary: In Woman on the Edge of Time, the future seems so glorious, yet there are always people who fall into cracks. This takes place before the book starts.

If you haven't read this novel I really do recommend it. Marge Piercy creates a truly fascinating future world and explores issues of race, gender, environmentalism, etc. I've been requesting it as long as I've been doing Yuletide, and this year I got it at last. Yay! It's a very well done story that perfectly captures the universe while also questioning some of its assumptions.

Running Off to See (100 words) by rabidsamfan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sense and Sensibility (1995)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Margaret Dashwood
Additional Tags: Drabble, yumadrin
Summary: Margaret wants to know the whole wide world.

After rewatching this movie earlier this year, I really wanted Margaret to have her adventures. And in this story she does!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is far and away my favorite new show of the season (note to self: write more about that later), and I was very happy to be assigned it for Yuletide.

It's Ladies Night (and the Feeling's Right) (6984 words) by Lenore
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Rosa Diaz/Amy Santiago
Characters: Rosa Diaz, Amy Santiago, Jake Peralta, Ray Holt, Gina Linetti, Charles Boyle, Terry Jeffords, Scully (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Hitchcock (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)
Additional Tags: Case Fic, Humor, Hypnotism, Kissing
Summary: There's a Hypnotist Bandit on the loose. Rosa and Amy take him down—but not without some misadventures.

I also did a pinch hit for the Hockey RPF Holiday Exchange which I'll post when I have more time. Happy New Year, everyone!

Three-sentence fic

As seen on Tumblr...but I think it will be more to do here!

1) Give me a pairing.

2) Give me an AU setting.

3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

This has "hockey vid" written all over it

My dear friend [personal profile] no_detective posted the link to this video that has become MY NEW FAVORITE THING.

Luscious Jackson - #1 Bum

I LOVE these women and their reactions, and I have had this very conversation with fangirls SO MANY TIMES. In fat, my Yankees friends and I have a hand gesture that's shorthand for: "Derek Jeter's ass is perfect." No words necessary. Message perfectly understood.

Now I really, REALLY need a hockey vid set to this song. Please?

Fall TV Viewing

Thanks to everyone who shared the TV shows they're looking forward to this fall! I think I've now sorted out my fall TV viewing.

Returning shows I'm really excited about:
-Elementary: my favorite show on TV right now
-Person of Internet: the end of last season left the story in a fascinating place, can't wait to see what happens next
-Haven: OT3! OT3!

Other returning shows I'll probably be watching:
-Castle: I love Nathan Fillion, but enough already with the OTT relationship drama
-Criminal Minds: This show jumped the shark for me last season, but a formulaic crime drama can be so weirdly soothing

Dear-God-why-can't-I-quit-you shows that maybe this year I will actually quit:
-Mentalist: F*ck you, just tell us who Red John is already, although I seriously don't know why I even care
-Supernatural: This show really should have ended several seasons ago, but I enjoyed this past season pretty well, so I probably won't quit it unless it's just too mired in Winchester misery

New shows I'm giving a shot:
-Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D: Big shock I know!
-Sleepy Hollow: HEADS. WILL. ROLL. This looks ridiculous in the most delightful way.
-The Blacklist: If this show didn't have James Spader in it I would probably pass, but it does, so.
-Reign: What can I say? I enjoy overwrought historical dramas.
-Dracula: I can't tell if this looks interesting or just pretentious, but I'm going to tune in and find out.

Women's Hockey Primer

I found this fantastic Women's Hockey Primer put together by [personal profile] pineapplechild via Tumblr. If there is anything more awesome than women playing hockey I don't know what it is. Also, I may have fallen in love with the captain of the US women's team, Julie Chu, a little bit. Or, you know, kind of a lot.

Yuletide nominations

I truly can't believe that September is almost here. Where did the summer go? No, no, really, where did 2013 go? I feel like I slept through it. But, hey, September does mean that Yuletide nominations are on the horizon. And this year...I have no idea what to nominate. Hm.

There is this vague memory I have of saying at least once or maybe more than that during the year...hey, I have to remember that for Yuletide! Oops. Relying on my memory is always a bad plan. I could ask for Ripper Street, because there is so very, very little fandom for it, and Captain Jackson is a sexy, unwashed scoundrel. Of course I do always nominate Woman On The Edge of Time, and I still haven't completely despaired of receiving it one day. I don't think hockey RPF is eligible? Or maybe it depends on the pairing. What else do I like? I can't think.

So what are you guys nominating?

Kaner/Tazer Recs, Part Deux

Here's part two of my Kaner/Tazer recs after much delay. Obviously I couldn't in good conscience recommend stories without rereading them first. Obviously. So there are actually many more K/T stories I've enjoyed, but given my somewhat slow-moving rec process, I think I'm going to leave it at this.

Kaner/Tazer recs, part two… )

Inception FIC: La Vie de Famille

Title: La Vie de Famille
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Word count: ~22,000
Summary: Arthur takes a job babysitting for Eames's son. Family happens.
Notes: There's a sad story about this story. I wrote it a while back for the Inception kink meme, and I got it to a good ending point, but I wanted to take it a little further. I worked on it off and on, and made progress, and then—lost the flash drive it was on. Sigh. There's no way I can recreate what I'd written, but since it was already a complete story, I decided at last to clean up the existing draft, post it and stop mourning what was lost. So here it is.

You can also read it at AO3:

If there was one thing Arthur really should have learned by this point in his life, it was not to answer a call from any member of his family on his way to a job interview… )

The power of female friendship + Hockey podcast

Passing along two links today (and completely glossing over the fact that I forgot to post yesterday, oops):

1. Transformation and Transcendence: The Power of Female Friendship by Emily Rapp

It's an article from last January, a meditation piece on how female friendship is generally treated in the mainstream media (dismissive and denigrating) versus the reality of how strong and nurturing and important these ties so often are. Female friendship plays a really important role in my life, and it was lovely to read a celebration of it.

2. Hockeyfact podcast

Maybe everyone else already knows about this hockey podcast, but I just found out about it recently. And it's awesome! There can never be enough of fangirls talking about hockey. Two episodes are available so far, with a mix of hockey news, opinions, and fannish happenings. Check it out!

Congratulations, Ichiro! (Also TV)

4,000 hits. Wow. Just wow. What an amazing accomplishment.

I have to admit, though, that I wasn't watching. I've been a bad Yankees fan this year. It's not that the team has been losing. It's that I don't even recognize them as my team. In pretty much every game, there's someone who comes up to bat or in to pitch, and I'm like: Who the hell is that? The most fun I had at the ballpark this year was at a Mets game watching Matt Harvey pitch.

Is it hockey season yet?

I haven't watched much TV this summer. Teen Wolf came back on and I just...had no interest in tuning in. I caught one episode of Rizzoli and Isles, and I enjoyed it, but then I kept forgetting it was on. I have caught up on some British shows--Broadchurch, The Fall, Luthor--and I've been making use of my Amazon Prime free instant videos to watch many episodes of Trial and Retribution.

Have there been any commercials for new fall shows? I can't remember any. Is it just me or has TV been largely disappointing the past few seasons? I mean, I adore Elementary, and I like POI very much. I watch Castle and sometimes enjoy it. I'm excited about new seasons of Ripper Street, Haven, and Whitechapel whenever they come along. I can't really think of anything else.

So what are you guys watching? What do you recommend? Are there any upcoming shows you're excited about?

Cute animal picture of the week

One thing I do really enjoy about Tumblr is all the pictures of hot people and cute animals.

Since I didn't have time today to put together part 2 of the Kaner/Tazer recs, here's an extremely adorable kitty pic instead. Cats! On shelves!

More hockey RPF recs for newbies: Kaner/Tazer (Part 1)

First, for anyone who needs a quick primer on these guys, check out this post.

Now on to the fic! The Kaner/Tazer corner of hockey fandom has SO MANY good stories, something I was reminded of when I started making this list. There are so many good stories, in fact, that I'm breaking these recs into two posts. Part two will come tomorrow.

Now on to the recs... )

Hockey RPF: Sid/Geno Recs for Newbies

Like some many people, I miss the community on LJ/DW. Tumblr just isn't the same. A bunch of people including my dear [ profile] no_detective have made the commitment to post every day for a month, and I'm going to do my part and join in.

I promised a few people that I would pass on some hockey fic recs for newbies. Here's the first set featuring Sid and Geno. There's nothing startling here. They're pretty much the stories everyone reads and rereads, but for anyone just getting into the fandom, this is a great place to start. I'll have another set for Tazer/Kaner and a set of miscellaneous other pairings.

Now on to the recs... )

ETA: If anyone needs a Sid/Geno primer, check out this post.

Hockey RPF: I'm Your Handyman (Kaner/Tazer)

Title: I'm Your Handyman
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Pairing: Kaner/Tazer
Rating: Explicit
Word count: ~7,000
Summary: Patrick breaks things, Johnny fixes them, and then there are feelings; or a tale of home repair and boys being really, really dumb.

Notes: This story is for the vanilla square of my Kink Bingo card. Big thank you to [personal profile] fanofall for the speedy beta. My apologies to home repair.

You can also read the story at AO3:

'If this were porn I'd totally blow you in gratitude right now.' It's the kind of thing that Patrick says, and yet Tazer's mouth drops open in a genuinely shocked sort of way, and huh, did shit suddenly get weird in here? )

Kink Bingo card

Cut to spare the disintereted )

Last year I was all about Teen Wolf. This year I'm going to see what I can do with hockey. I've got my eye on the endurance, wet messy dirty, negotiation and consent play squares. I also want to look for ways to subvert kinks that really aren't to my taste. Seems like this is going to be it for kink_bingo for a while, so I want to really do it up.
