Yuletide 2019 Writer's Letter

Hello, my lovely and wonderful writer!

Happy Yuletide and thank you, in advance, for my fic. I'm sure no matter what you write, it's going to be great.

I've included a few details on the AO3 sign-up, but I thought I'd actually get my act together in time this year and sort out a writer's letter - I know I always find it more handy when my recipiant includes one!

Now, nothing from the below is set in stone. Apart from the strong DNWs - cross-posted on the sign-up - this is all just brainstorming, and feel free to take or leave as you wish.


Request 1: Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch

Look, I love the books. Completely and utterly. Do I think they would have perhaps been better with an OT3 in the mix? Maybe - but probably just as good in a different way.

I'm not 100% married to the OT3 - Peter/Beverley with a side of Peter&Nightingale and Beverley&Nightingale BFFs would be amazing. Peter/Nightingale with a side of Beverley being the fantastic goddess that she is? Equally amazing. Gen with all three set back earlier in the series? Wunderbar! AU fic? Yusssssss...

...You get the idea. I would love some shenanigans, and don't be afraid to use whatever other characters you'd like. I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of Lesley, but you do you, babes.


Request 2: Eroica Yori Ai o Komete (or; From Eroica with Love)

Yes, yes, yes. They've been around for a while, but Klaus and Dorian will always hold a special place in my heart - heists! bickering! unresolved sexual tension of varying degrees!

Again, shenanigans would be great - casefic, super-secret missions, undercover work, relying on each other to survive... the possibilities are endless! - but I'm also a softie for a soft relationship and falling gradually and inexorably in love over the years.


Request 3: Myron Bolitar - Harlan Coban

Look... I'll be honest. About 8-10 years ago, I adored this series. I think I read maybe the first six books? And then the audiobooks destroyed it... there was something about it that just really threw me and I lost my interest in the series.

But I still remember the dynamic between Myron and Win - and, let's face it, Win's a possessive, toppy little bastard, whether the relationship is gen or slash. I would love something that explored the relationship between the two (canon or not).


Request 4: The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Oh, these two. These flawed, perfect men. Seperately, they're dangerous. Together, unstoppable.

...Except for that nasty canon ending. So! I would dearly, please love a happy ending for Goody and Billy - has it been done before? Yes. So many, many times.

Do we wants another? Yes, pretty please.

I just love the hints of backstory through the film, and I would love something that takes them through before we meet them, into canon and then hopefully out again the other side. Would rather have something canon-era, but AU is great too!


Request 5: Pride (2014)

Found familes, friends becoming closer than blood...

I also have a soft spot for Jonathan becoming a genuinely bemused den-father - surrounded by these very excitable and utterly exhausting baby-gays and wondering just how, exactly, he began giving a fuck again while Gethin laughs fondly at him...

Maybe something to do with Christmas, but not set in stone!


Request 6: Some Like It Hot (1959)

Oh, my god, I need to know where their story takes them. They're on a boat in the dark, heading out to a yacht with Joe and Sugar... canoodling in the back, and the might of the Chicago mob behind them.

Osgood's character is frankly fascinating, and Gerry/Daphne needs more love in their life. It's true, and I should say it.


Well, that's it.

Happy writing, have a lovely festive season, whatever you celebrate, and I'll see you on the other side! ♥ ♥ ♥
