coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Phoradendron leucarpum)

This is the first stretch of time I've been able to have to myself today, although it was good seeing family. And of course in my first bit of free time, I read my Yuletide stories. (I got a story plus a treat! I am amazed and awed!) Honestly, it was really hard to not sneak away during the day to read them. But I stayed strong because I wanted to be able to read at my own pace and give them the attention and love they deserve.

Both stories are utterly perfect and wonderful and I cannot imagine anything better. The story written for me is New Cuisine. It's Saul/Fritz from Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books, and...I am not sure if there are words to describe how much I love this story. Perhaps you can picture a giant heart taking up your entire computer screen and you'll get close, but that's only perhaps. I was captivated by its wonderfulness from the first paragraph, so maybe that can convince people where my words are failing:
Someone once said every man is the hero of his own story. Maybe it's true. But if your friend and fellow P.I. is a hot-shot author who writes up his exploits for the reading public, that public doesn't even know you have your own stories.
Is it not fantastic? (This is a rhetorical question because the only acceptable answer is "Mythical creatures are jealous of it's fantasticness, it's so fantastic.")

And I got a treat too, which I am amazed by because I would have been completely ecstatic with one perfect story but instead I got two! It's Crime and Punishment, Tony/Lucas from seaQuest DSV. I already thought it was great with Tony and Lucas exploring a really cool underground cave (Underwater exploration, yay!), and there was lots of fun, teasing banter between them. But then you get to the kissing, and something that was already wonderful and perfect manages to get even perfecter.

I don't know how I managed it because I don't deserve one story that's exactly what I wanted, much less two, but that's what I got. To both authors, thank you so very, very much.

I got my [ profile] yuletide assignment, which I figured meant now's a good time to post this! So. [ETA: Apparently, I'll be getting a new assignment. But I still figure now's a good time for the Yuletide letter.]

Dear [ profile] yuletide writer,

You volunteered to write me a story in a fandom that is dear to my heart, thank you! I adore the characters I requested so I'll love any story that lets them be in the spotlight and gives them a chance to shine. Beyond that, my prompts are just to give you ideas or a starting place if you need one. I am extremely easy to please, so I will be utterly thrilled with whatever it is you write for me simply because it is for me and in one of my beloved fandoms.

General preferences tend towards happy, fun stories more than sad, angsty ones. I am a total sucker for domesticity and romance, although I define romance very broadly. A traditional, candlelit dinner can be romantic, but so can a cutthroat game of poker. It all depends on what's appropriate for the characters involved. On the other hand, I also like seeing the characters in action, doing whatever it is they do. They may be catching criminals or having undersea adventures or making movies or something else! Again, I'm easy. (Actually, I'm kind of slutty when it comes to reading. There isn't a genre that I refuse to read, so go with what you think you can write best. Really!)

[ETA: I want to clarify what I meant by happy stories because I just realized that it might sound like all I want is a fluffy bunny story full of sunshine and rainbows. And I like that, but I also like stories that are just about life and its foibles. So long as, at the end, everyone's okay or mostly okay or on the road to being okay, then I count that as happy. Sad is when everyone's dead at the end.]

I will admit to a preference for slash, but gen is completely okay with me as well. (Except in the case of Jules and Robin. If you are one of the few who offered to write Suzanne Brockmann fic, daring writer, I would be very surprised by gen because, well, the relationship is canon. But I don't think you would have offered to write them if that was a problem.) If you decide to go the slash route, sex can happen or not depending on if you think the story needs it.

If you want more more, fandom-specific info )

Despite all my blather, what I said in the first paragraph still stands. I will love whatever you write because it is a story in one of my beloved fandoms. Everything else is just icing on the cake, and you can take it or leave it as you please.

I've managed to get everything I've ever written put up at a journal created for that purpose. Which is nice, especially because before my writings were spread around about five different places. Some of it I'm vaguely embarassed by because it's the first stuff I wrote ever, but I'm a packrat when it comes to writing as well so I can't not include everything.

Doing this reminded me that I'm one of the, like, four writers on the internet who's written Lucas/Tony and the only one in this tiny group that's written something other than bad porn for the pairing. And that makes me sad.

Dude! SeaQuest is coming out on dvd! And just in time for Christmas too! This is so exciting. I've been waiting for the show to come out on dvd for forever it seems like. Now, if Invisible Man would just come out on dvd, I could die from the sheer amount of joy my dvds would give me.
