Dear Christmas Bale,

This is AR, aka Who Shot AR (akerwis) on the AO3.

IDK about you, but man, Yuletide sneaked up on me this year. But I'm excited to be here, and I'm excited for both of us to have a great season! I've provided deets below for you, both on my general interests and my fandom-specific ones, but I want you to know that the number-one thing I want most is for you to have a fun time writing a story. This letter exists as some quietly excited ideas for you, but your own excitement and creativity are what make Yuletide wonderful, and I trust you to use this nonsense here as much or as little as you'd like. Please follow your heart where it takes you.

So, the general stuff:

Yes, please: All tenses and POVs, afterlife stories, arguments and apologies, bittersweet stories, character deaths, children, clothing descriptions, complicated relationships, confessions of love, diary fiction, domesticity, epistolary fiction, fairy tales, fairy tale retellings, family stories, femslash, flowers, fluff, food descriptions, friendship, gen, ghosts, grief, hand-holding, happily ever afters, haunted houses, het, holiday stories, Hollywood amnesia, hopeful endings, huddling for warmth, magic in the real world, mentorship, one-sided crushes, parenthood, pastiche, period settings, poetry, popular music, pregnancy, realistic fiction, recovery from failure, religious themes, sad but appropriate to the rest of the story endings, sensory details, snowstorms, sweet stories, this Venn diagram, traditions, tragedies, unusual formats, wingfic, zithers. :)

No, thank you: Alien abductions or grey alien types, asexual headcanon, autism headcanon, cats suffering even mild inconvenience (I can handle all other animals being in danger / dying / getting dinner two minutes late, but I'm really sensitive about cats), issue fic, poly shipping, religious bashing, storylines ripped from current US political headlines, trans headcanon, unrelenting cynicism

Here are my old letters, if those might help you. Please forgive any copy-pasting I've done from year to year--I'm afraid I get lazy at times!

-Yuletide 2016
-Yuletide 2015
-Yuletide 2014
-Yuletide 2013
-Yuletide 2012
-Yuletide 2011
-Yuletide 2010
-Yuletide 2009

And this is my general Yuletide tag, which might be of interest to you but might also just be kind of nonsense-y.

Nota bene: While there might be some variance in the length of my tl;dr under each request, please be assured that I want all these requests with equal fervor. Some of my requests are less wide-open than others, or involve significantly less canon, so they take fewer words to explain. ♥ If, in any of these situations, you feel like I haven't given you enough to work with, please reach out to me so I can type some more excited nonsense to you!



the ramsay scallop; elenor of ramsay, thomas of thornham )

doctrine of labyrinths; methony feucoronne )

kavclay: rosa saks, thomas kavalier )

uncanny x-force: evan sabahnur, fantomex )

all new x-men: evan sabahnur )

That's everything I've got for this year. I hope this was a manageable read for you, and again, please don't stress the details. I have faith that you'll come up with something marvelous. Please feel free to reach out through the mods if you have any questions for me--or, if you need an answer on the double, please feel free to comment anon here on my letter. I'm not bothered either way.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity, and I hope the end of your year is a pleasant one. You have all my best wishes as we jump into this fest together.

Yours,
Who Shot AR (akerwis)

Duncan Fegredo's covers for BPRD: Cometh The Hour were so fucking wonderful that I've been looking forward to seeing his covers for The Devil You Know just about as much as I was to reading the actual story.
And I was particularly looking forward to who would be on the fifth Devil You Know cover, because it really wasn't obvious by eliminating who had been on the first four. It turned out to be everyone! I'm so bloody delighted.

Currently this letter is copy/pasted from last year and undergoing edits, but you should definitely go sign up!

Happy Halloween, creator! I'm so glad you're participating in this fest - each year I've played I have had so much fun, and I am super excited to see what this year brings. (I hope you're excited and having fun, too!)

Please, please don't be intimidated by the length of this letter. I know it is long. I am ridiculous and wordy. This letter is only here to help spark something for you - but if you've got something in mind already, please go for it! I'm sure I'll love what you come up with. If you're drawing a blank, however, feel free to skip down to the fandom (or character) you're interested in. Hopefully I've touched on something that inspires you!

The Covenant (2006) )

Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns )

I got a [community profile] ladiesbingo card a week ago and since I've been a little frazzled lately, I kept forgetting to post it. ^^;;

I'm still struggling to write and I haven't even been trying to draw but the want is there. I've just been lazy. And playing so much Skyrim omg I need to pull my ass away from it.

26: You get to have [1] anime character as your waifu/husbando spend a day with you in real life, who do you choose?

Inasmuch as I still haven't finished my list of Anime Characters I Would Most Like To Be Friends With, I am not even pretending to tackle another romantic question. So instead, I'm going to change it, and spend my theoretical day with Natsume (from NATSUME'S BOOK OF FRIENDS). I mean, the chances are fairly high that I'm gonna be bugged by youkai before, during, and possibly after? But Natsume's got a good track record of dealing with that, and he's a sweet kid who makes friends easily, assuming you can deal with the aforementioned youkai problems. (Also I'd love to see how Nyanko Sensei reacts to Pallais, and vice-versa. :snerk:)

27: Which anime character are you most like?

A cross between Yuuri Katsuki (from YURI!!! ON ICE) - hooray canonical anxiety problems! - and Nenene Sumiregawa (from READ OR DIE), who's a writer (although frequently blocked and slow) and is even more frequently terrible at human interaction.
