Dear Yulegoat,

First of all: Thank you so much for writing for me! I'm excited to be doing Yuletide again this year—it was a fabulous experience last year, and I can't wait to see what you write me!

In general, I'm interested in character studies and fics that explore motivations, backstory, and just generally look at what's under the hood. Especially for TV shows and movies, where pretty much everything we get is what we see, I always find it interesting to go deeper into the heads of the characters to examine why they're doing what they're doing, what they think of both other characters and the situations in which they find themselves, and so on and so forth. I also love "after the end" sorts of fics. For a better idea of what I read/like to read, anything on [personal profile] christycorr's pinboard is a good guideline—she's my best friend, and we have very similar reading/fanfiction tastes. My tumblr may also be helpful. (I'd direct you to my pinboard, but it's an epic mess, so really don't go there.)

In terms of specific likes/dislikes re: fanfiction: I read pretty much everything. NC-17 is great, I read more slash than I do het (and would love love love love to see more femmeslash in fandom in general), but I'd prefer that generally triggery stuff—particularly non-con—stay out of the fics I've requested. I adore witty/sarcastic banter/writing, especially when it's full of references to other things I like (again, my tumblr and my Livejournal/Dreamwidth user info pages are good places to go to get an idea of my tastes and fandoms). As I think you can guess from the above paragraph, good characterisation is always something I will love—especially when a fic has strong female characters.

On to the prompts themselves (and, of course, optional details are always optional):

The prompts )

In general: I hope this letter and/or the prompts spark something in you, but if they don't, and some other semi-related idea hits, feel free to go where the muses/bunnies/Yuletide fairies take you! I'll honestly just be glad to get anything. Again, thank you so much for doing this; I'm really excited!

<3,

Dear Secret Mutant,

First of all: Thank you so so so much for writing this fic for me; I'm incredibly excited to be participating in this exchange, and I can't wait to read whatever it is you give me.

Down to brass tacks: I tried to write fairly open-ended prompts, and I hope something in them sparks with you, but if nothing does, feel free to go in a different direction. I do ask that, in general, there be an overabundance of fluff and relatively little angst—that being said, though, as someone who is no stranger to wild angst appearing in my fic without my intent, I'm totally fine with angst showing up as long as it's resolved happily.

For those prompts where I listed a range of pairings, writing any of the pairings/combinations of the pairings is fine. Additionally, any pairing I listed is fair game for any of the prompts, so if there's a pairing I listed on one of the prompts that isn't listed on another, don't feel limited to just that one prompt. (I would love to see a non-Charles/Erik pairing, and especially femmeslash, but if that doesn't work for you, no worries!)

I did ask for relatively explicit material in some of my prompts, though if you're not comfortable with that, feel free to go in any direction you please! I'm perfectly happy with fade to black.

I'm not very good at keeping track of my bookmarks/fics I like/etc. in a way that anyone else can track, so while I'd love to point you at my Pinboard/AO3 page, I'm afraid neither will be terribly useful. My tumblr ought to be at least somewhat helpful, though. Feel free to check out my best friend's Pinboard; though she doesn't have much by the way of XMFC fic, she's got several of my favourites, as well as fics that—with the exception of the Teen Wolf stuff—generally fall under the heading of "things I like." If you have any further questions about how I feel re: anything XMFC-related, feel free to ask me through [personal profile] unforgotten or leave me an anonymous comment—or, you know, ask the secret_mutant mods to ask me. *grins*

To help, though, here's what I can come up with for a list of likes (which is by no means comprehensive; I'm sure I'm missing something) and dislikes.

Things I like: Witty/snarky banter, sarcasm, strong characters (especially female characters), crack, fluff, mocking Erik's fashion sense, people acting like semi-rational adults, possessive—but not controlling!—partners, use of powers

Kinks I like: top!Charles, bottom!Erik (I don't really have preferences for any of the other pairings), dirty talk, somnophilia, fingering, rimming, bondage, light power dynamics, comeplay, nipple clamps/nipple play, (mostly) consensual sex of any kind really, telepathy during sex, powerkink

Things/Kinks I'd rather not see: A/o, D/s 'verse or very heavy D/s, non-con, Shaw (unless he dies horribly), excessive misogynism, excessive angst, sad endings (hopeful endings are okay, but mostly, I want my teeth to melt)

Really, though: I'll honestly be happy with pretty much anything. Again, thank you so much for doing this; I can't wait to read whatever you write!

<3,

Guys. Guys. Guys.

So, because I'm insane, I'm producing a show. It happens to be Pirates of Penzance set in the Firefly 'verse.

And, er, today Whedonesque heard about it and people seem to be getting excited: here! Let's just hope it translates into ticket purchases. If it does, we may actually make money on this show. If I'm lucky.

Dear Yuletide author,

First of all, I'm so so so so so sorry it took me this long to write this. I have a bit of a problem with procrastination (and life has also been insanely busy, but mostly it's the procrastination thing), in case you couldn't tell.

Second of all, thank you so much for doing this! I always love fic exchanges, and Yuletide is always tons of fun (even if I've only participated once before this). If you're writing a fic for me, you probably watch at least a little bit of TV—or, who knows, you're a TV addict like me! *grins*

In general, I'm interested in character studies and fics that explore motivations, backstory, and just generally look at what's under the hood. Especially for TV shows, where pretty much everything we get is what we see, I always find it interesting to go deeper into the heads of the characters to examine why they're doing what they're doing, what they think of both other characters and the situations in which they find themselves, and so on and so forth. For a better idea of what I read/like to read, anything on [personal profile] christycorr's pinboard is a good guideline—she's my best friend, and we have very similar reading/fanfiction tastes. (I'd direct you to my pinboard/Delicious, but they're both epic messes, so really don't go there.)

In terms of specific likes/dislikes re: fanfiction: I read…almost everything. NC-17 is fine, I read more slash than I do het (but I have no real preference either way), but I'd prefer that generally triggery stuff—particularly non-con—stay out of the fics I've requested. I love love love witty/sarcastic banter/writing, especially when it's full of references to other things I like (my tumblr and my Livejournal/Dreamwidth user info pages are good places to go to get an idea of my tastes and fandoms). As I think you can guess from the above paragraph, good characterisation is always something I will love (especially when a fic has strong female characters).

Specific detail re: the prompts themselves )

Honestly? If you feel stymied by any of these prompts or anything I've said, or if a random plot bunny hits that drags you in a different direction than the ones in which I've pointed you, feel free to just…play around. I'm mostly just excited to be participating in Yuletide this year, and I can't wait to see what you come up with! Again, thank you for doing this!

Sweet Jesus help us all, it's Election Day.

If Obama doesn't win, I will lose all faith in America. And I will start preparing my bomb shelter and my escape plan, because I will sure as all hell need one.

If you live in the United States and can vote, then VOTE. For the love of God, please vote. This is the most important election in recent history—the future of our nation, hell, the entire world, rests upon it.

That's all I have to say. Why are you still sitting here and reading this, and not casting your ballot?

[personal profile] firstlightofeos and [profile] writing_freak88's combined review of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie (X-posted in [profile] writing_freak88):

[profile] writing_freak88 says: A long, long time ago in a land far, far away, there was the Girl Who Lived And Happened To Work In A Movie Theatre. And she happened to be bullied into taking a 4'10" midget to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with her when the staff screened it early. After some bullying by her fellow coworkers (which nearly gave them heart attacks), a quick showing of Ratatouille, and some pink lemonade+, they saw it. And this is their very comedic review.

I WANT TO GO TO NEW JERSEY.

I want to go home.

(Home is where the heart is, they say. If that's true–and I think it is–then my home is definitely 3,000 miles away, in a place that I haven't seen for over a year.)

*sighs* I really, really, really do. Don't care how I get there, but I need to go there over winter break.

Now, if only Mum would let me...

Some day, I will write a story based upon this song:


I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me, asleep with the night.
And her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight.


She is soft, she is warm, but my heart remains heavy,
And I watch as her breast gently rises, gently falls,
For I know at the first light of dawn, I'll be leaving,
And tonight will be all I have left to recall.


Oh, what have I done, why have I done it?
I've committed a crime, broken the law.
For twenty-five dollars and pieces of silver,
I held up and robbed a hard liquor store.


My life seems unreal, my crimes an illusion,
A scene badly written in which I must play.
Yet I know as I gaze at my young love beside me,
The morning is just a few hours away.


Change.

Felt like changing my icon.

Chris, I blame this entirely on you.
firstlightofeos: (Curiosity)
Mm. Since a friend of mine did this:

Post anything that you want (in comments), and post it anonymously. It can be anything: a story, a secret, a confession, a fear, a love–whatever you want. Be sure to post anonymously and honestly. Post twice (or more than that) if you'd like.

Then, put this in your LJ to see what your friends (and perhaps others who you don't even realize read your LJ) have to say.

Having been bored with my journal, I've decided to make some changes. Most obviously, the journal's title and mood theme have changed; I've decided to base everything off of Johnny Mercer's song, "Dream":

Get in touch with that sundown fellow,
As he tiptoes across the sun.
He's got a million kinds of stardust;
Pick your favorite brand.
And...

Dream,
When you're feeling blue.
Dream,
That's the thing to do.

Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air;
You'll find your share of memories there.
So...

Dream,
Ahen the day is through.
Dream,
And they might come true.

Things never are as bad as they seem,
So dream, dream, dream.






C'est une très belle chanson, n'est-ce pas?

Anyways. Life in general is going all right...tired, a bit stressed, but in general, everything's a-okay.

*huggles to everyone*
