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! ♥ ♥ ♥
