Yuletide Letter 2019

Dear Yuletide Writer:

Collapse )

Thanks again! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

P.S. I'm going to be out of town between December 22nd and January 5th. I'm not sure how often I'll be online. I'll be checking my email, but I may not get a chance to read/comment until I come home. (I'll have my phone, but I'm discovering how frustrating it is to type text on one of those after years of just using a desktop.) Please be patient with me if my feedback/acknowledgment has to wait until I'm back home!

Going out of my mind

I'm in Montreal. Have been since last Monday. Hubby came in on Friday. And when he did... Soot ran out the door. Hubby delayed his departure four hours, hoping the cat would turn up, but judging by the new damage to the screen door, it looks like he didn't hear when Soot did.

Sitter is still coming and trying to coax him back in but... she's a stranger and he's shy.

He's been indoors for fifteen months. What if the two other cats, the feral ones I still feed, beat him up or chase him off now? They've surely taken over his territory. What if he's lost his survival instincts? What if he's not coming back?

Hubby goes back tomorrow and we're hoping Soot will come out. But right now? See post title.

Yuletide Letter

Dear Yuletide Author,

First of all, thank you so much for doing this! I really appreciate it.

I tried to be detailed in my signup post, but just in case more clarification is needed, here we go.

1) I'm mostly about gen, but canon friendships that could become something else/have subtext are fine. I like witty banter. No PWP, though.
2) My comfort zone is All Ages and/or Teen. If the reason for a 'mature' rating is a couple of F-bombs or you're including some violence and rating it high to be safe, that's okay. I'm just not looking for explicit sex scenes.
3) I'm a sucker for angst, hurt-comfort, divergence AUs, friendship, and happy endings. And that would include 'hopeful' endings, too. Something along the lines of "Despite everything that fate's tossed our way, we're still here and we're not going anywhere. Maybe we lost the battle, but we'll win the war!" is 100% okay. As is a bona-fide happy ending.
4) Angst over canonical character death is fine. Please don't kill off a character in the fic.

Fandom specifics:


As mentioned, I'm a sucker for Matt-Foggy bromance. I love them as friends, but I don't ship them romantically. As long as that friendship is there, you can give me additional characters and the plot of your choice. I like Matt angsty and I like Foggy savvy (please, no Silver Age buffoonery). Ben and Milla are fine to add, but not necessary.

Dungeons and Dragons:

I love all of the Young Ones and had more of them been nominated, I would have listed them all. Also, this is one of the few times I wouldn't mind romance (Hank/Sheila). Gen is good, too. Wide open here. Give me something in the Realm or a before-the-ride or an after-they-got-home. I'm not really interested in DM-centric or Venger-centric, but no problem if you're inspired to use them in your fic, so long as the Young Ones are front and center. Use as many of the six as you like.


I like Matt and Gwen as adversaries/frenemies. Something where they're forced to work together (either the way it is in canon, where Matt is blackmailing her, or some reason why they would unite in the field against a common foe, albeit temporarily) would be good. Supporting cast is fine; there really isn't anyone I dislike in the comic, though I prefer Castle in small doses.

Thanks again!
