Thank you so much! I love reading Yuletide fic every year but this is the first time I've participated, and I'm really excited. I don't want to be too prescriptive about what I receive, so feel free to interpret my prompts and suggestions loosely, or to write something that goes in a different direction if that's where inspiration takes you.

I'll start with some general likes and dislikes and then talk a bit about fandom-specific things.

Things I like:

  • Banter

  • Friendship

  • Stable, happy relationships

  • Polyamory

  • Communicaton

  • Stories centering women and/or LGBTQ characters

  • Happy or bittersweet endings

  • Worldbuilding

  • Non-linear storytelling

  • Missing scenes

  • Character studies, internal monologues, backstories, other things that build on canon characterisation

Things I dislike:

  • Noncon, dubcon, incest

  • Infidelity in monogamous or closed relationships

  • Animal harm

  • Unrelieved angst

  • Torture or gore

  • Non-canon major character death

  • Secondhand embarassment

Some other general notes:

  • I'm fine with fantasy/scifi/historical/mythological/etc. AUs, but I'm not usually a fan of AUs focusing on everyday modern life (college, coffeeshop, etc.)

  • Any rating is fine, G to NC-17. If the latter, I like communication, character moments, and enthusiastic consent in my porn

  • Crossovers between any of my requested fandoms are fine. I'd be especially interested in a Clover/Bastion crossover or any combination of Matt Cruse/Miss Fisher/His Dark Materials

Fandom-specific stuff below the cut!

Matt Cruse series - Kenneth Oppel
Characters: Matt Cruse, Kate de Vries
I ship Matt/Kate, but I'm also happy to read gen featuring either or both of them. Airship hijinks and/or science hijinks are encouraged, as are worldbuilding and history/politics nerdery.

Inda series - Sherwood Smith
Characters: Shendan Montredavan-An, Indevan Algara-Vayir, Tdor Marth-Davan, Taumad Dei
The characterisation is one of my favourite things about this series, and about Sherwood Smith's writing in general. I'll basically be happy with anything featuring any or all of these characters! Some suggestions: Inda/Tdor domestic fic; Tdor and Shendan, Inda and Shendan, or Inda and Tau friendship; some interaction between Tau and Shendan; or what were some of Tau's adventures between his parting ways with Inda and the epilogue?

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
Characters: Phryne Fisher (Miss Fisher TV), Jack Robinson (Miss Fisher TV), Elizabeth MacMillan (Miss Fisher TV), Dorothy "Dot" Williams (Miss Fisher TV)
I would love just about anything with any subset of these characters. I ship Phryne/Jack but am also fine with gen or Phryne/Mac. Casefic/adventure/hijinks would be great but are by no means a requirement.

Clover - CLAMP
Characters: Ran (Clover), Suu (Clover), Oruha
I'd prefer gen fic for these characters, though background pairings are fine. I'd love to see some interaction between Ran and Oruha, or Ran and Suu - how do they perceive each other? How much do Ran and Oruha know about each others' situations/impending deaths? How does Ran react after Suu's death? I know these prompts sound sad, but I'd prefer bittersweet stories, with the characters finding what happiness they can.

Bastion (Video Game)
Characters: Zia (Bastion). The Kid (Bastion)
My biggest question, on finishing the game (with the Evacuation ending) was "What happens next?" So I'd like something exploring what happens post-game, where the characters go, how they live, etc.

His Dark Materials
Characters: Lyra Belacqua (His Dark Materials), Will Parry (His Dark Materials), Serafina Pekkala (His Dark Materials), Mary Malone (His Dark Materials)
I'd like something post-series, looking at the ways the characters' lives parallel each other in their separate worlds. Near the end of the series, Xaphania says that there are ways to travel between worlds that don't create spectres, but that those ways would take a lifetime to learn. Do any of the characters pursue those means of travel, deliberately or by accident?
