coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)
Sunday, April 30th, 2017 10:29 pm
Canon: The Mysterious Island
Pairing: Tom Ayrton/Cyrus Smith/Gideon Spilett/Nebuchadnezzar/Bonadventure Pencroff
Canon Level: Compatriots

If I am one of like three people interested in fic for this book, then I am definitely the only one interested in having all the characters kiss each other. But they spend so much time working together and supporting each other and being very close friends! Ayrton/Pencroff is my preferred pairing if forced to pick one, but all the men are so close that I would like any configuration. Except any pairing involving Harbert because the way Verne writes him, I place his age as being somewhere between twelve and twenty-two and genuinely cannot narrow it down further than that. The rest are all fair game though. Ayrton, the loner trying to redeem himself from his dark past; Cyrus, the undisputed leader of the group with his calm and steady presence; Gideon, the intrepid reporter who follows in Cyrus's footsteps as closely as he can; Neb, whose loyalty and zeal towards his fellow islanders is inspiring; and Pencroff, whose emotions sometimes get the better of him but who mentors Harbert and believes in everyone else as strongly as he can. They all share a connection.

Canon: The Mighty Orinoco
Pairing: Jacques/Jeanne
Canon Level: Married

I am ridiculously into this book and couple, and I am sadly the only one. Not that I am surprised by this. The Mighty Orinoco is about a group of people traveling together to find the source of the Orinoco River, each for their own reasons. Jeanne, the lady in my default icon, disguised herself as a boy so she could go search for her missing father. While on the trip, she strikes up a friendship with Jacques, leaving him much confused until he rescues after she falls overboard and figures some things out. Jeanne is courageous and strong-willed, so it's no wonder Jacques falls head over heels for her. And it turns out I am completely weak against characters who are very confused about their feelings, most notably Jacques and his friendship with Jean/Jeanne and I do not think finding out Jeanne's gender would have made him any less confused. Verne doesn't really dwell on that aspect, but I am perfectly happy to read between the lines.

coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Jean from Jules Verne's The Mighty Orino)

...I can't believe I forgot to do this for nearly a year. Which is annoying because I got the most wonderful story last year for Yuletide.

There and back again by [ profile] oxymoron is the Mighty Orinoco story I never thought I'd be lucky enough to get. Oxymoron read an entire Jules Verne novel for me! And then wrote a sublimely perfect Jeanne! I love her so much that she's my only icon here on DW, and I never thought I'd ever get anything about her because who else has ever read The Mighty Orinoco? I love it so much, and it makes me so sad that this story will never get the accolades it deserves because it is for a rarest-of-rare fandom.

I wrote Awry Plans for [ profile] bribitribbit in the Lilo & Stitch fandom. I had fun writing it.

And, sadly, I made the decision not to participate in Yuletide this year. I just don't have the time and energy to do it this year.

Hello Yuletide Author! Thank you very much for offering to write one of my teeny fandoms! I am actually very easy to please, and I am sure I will love whatever you write. I firmly believe that the best stories are the ones the author wants to write, so if you have an idea that doesn't match my optional details, go for it. If you'd like a bit more guidance (or a bit more explanation...) however, then read on.

Super Street Fighter IV )

The Might Orinoco by Jules Verne )

The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne )

Poe series by Harold Schechter )

...I hope that, if you read all my ramblings, it hasn't scared you off. I really did mean what I said at the beginning of this letter though; I will love whatever you write.
