Dear Yuletide! Author:

Yuletide 2011! Finally!

Happy Yule, writer!

I sat and really thought about my nominations this year... and realized I still pretty much want the same thing: Slash involving Kiefer Sutherland. Maybe I should just nominate him as his own fandom next year.
So yeah, if you're already familiar with my requests from last year, sorry for the repeat! If not... here goes!

Yule writer, please know that I will genuinely love whatever you want to write, and I hope that beyond everything else you really enjoy playing in my fandom(s)! I came into Yuletide for the first time in 2009 hoping for porn (I admit it, I'm a perv) and what I ended up with was such an amazingly vivid character/relationship/plotty piece that was so much more amazing than anything I could have ever done that I fell in love with the fandom all over again, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing Yuletide gift. Then in 2010 I DID get porn, and that was just as awesome as the previous years! In both cases it totally made my Christmas. I've realized that my favorite thing in the world - and about Yuletide! - is being able to see a fandom I love over again through the eyes of another writer, whether that be slash or gen, fluffy or porny or anything else!

General Likes: Slash, Romance, smut, fluff, anything involving two (male) characters furthering their relationship in some manner (romantic or friendly-like). Epic!Plot is fun if that's your thing, but I'm happy just with relationship stuff. <3 Angst is awesome, UST-that-gets-resolved, domestic kink if it's in character.... drunken shenanigans, Character explorations involving romance.... dirty, dirty explicit sex. PWPs are also completely ok.

Kinks?: I'll read pretty much any kink that does not involve watersports/excrement, extreme humiliation or death. Love lots of kink, slash, femslash, gen. I'd even be ok with genderswap if that's your thing.

General Dislikes: Mpreg, furry, het (unless it's genderswap), pedo, scat, deathfic, completely unresolved angst, het... babies unless they belong to Ben....

Without further rambling, here are my original Yuletide Requests and a bit extra:

Dark City

John Murdoch / Dr. Daniel Schreber

Dear little fandom of my heart! This fandom and this pairing got me back into writing, and while I've been told I'm quite... prolific in this fandom please don't let that dissuade you, my favorite thing in the world is discovering it again through the eyes of a new writer. Please feel free to screw around with canon at will if it suits the creative process, AU is great too, as long as these two characters are in tact, good and in some kind of positive relationship with each other (romance, new-discovered friendship, established friendship, partners-in-crime... anything!) They are my OTP. <3 Any other male characters and pairings from the movie are welcome but not required. Also I've gotten really fond of Anna/Emma Murdoch and May (cute little blond hooker) as a femslash pairing, so if you decide you want to focus on them and have the others in the background that's cool too.

More details:
If you really need some prompts, here's 50 sentences/prompts/ideas for Dark City from my 1sentence challenge. <3
Daniel Schreber is my favourite Kiefer ever. <3 At first glance, he's the scared/battered tragic little scientist enslaved by the evil overlords who steps out of his comfort zone to try and help the hero. And of course in the end he totally pwns the Strangers and saves the day with his nifty little "how to Tune like a badass mofo" cocktail, which really leaves you questioning his involvement on a deeper level. Had he been waiting for someone in the city to wake up? Did he somehow influence John gaining the Tuning abilities? What kind of experiments was he doing in his office with the rats? God, I love Schreber. <3
John Murdoch: I love that John is presented as a bit of an iconic Noir hero - a bit crazy and angry when he's lost, but noble once he's found his way. I see him as being very dedicated - perhaps a bit obsessive (dangerously obsessive and protective of Daniel perhaps?) - and with his unique powers, probably more than a little eccentric, which is fun. Like this comic.

I woke up one day thinking that Dark City would be totally awesome to slash, and found that there... wasn't really anything out there. :( So I started writing, and somewhere along the line these two became my OTP. ^^; I would adore anything romance related, especially sex, but preslash or allusions to sex or even just fluffy happy romance times are AWESOME. If slash really isn't your thing that's totally cool, I'm happy for a BFF fic, but please don't pair them with anyone else.
I also think it would be really interesting to see the two of them get the city back to earth, but I've never been able to figure out how to do it....
And I kind of wouldn't mind seeing a high school AU just for shits and giggles. XD


Ben Carson, Larry Byrne

Can be primarily Ben focused as long as Larry's in there somewhere, I know he's a bit minor. Slash preferred, gen ok too. Minimal to no involvement with Amy Carson if possible. Elaborating on Ben and Larry's background together hinted at in the deleted scenes could be fun, or meeting up if Ben manages to get back to the real world. Smut is love, but no het please. And again I've become quite fond of Ben's wife and Ben's sister (Amy Carson/Angie Carson) as a femslash pairing, so if you'd rather explore that it would be cool too!

More details:

Here's the deleted scene with Larry in all it's digicam recorded off the TV goodness with shite sound quality. I'm sorry. ;___; But he's still amazing. In fact, pretty much anyone played by Jason Flemyng is amazing. Seen X-Men FC? Fuck it, Jason Flemyng is Amazing.

Oh god, I adore Ben. He's just such a goddamn nice guy and a great father, who has bad luck and a wife who is... well, a failed marriage. As long as the fic involves Something Good happening in Ben's life that isn't his wife, I will be ecstatic.
If that Something Good is Larry, that's even better. XD
Back story would be fun - how did he end up shooting the undercover cop? How close were him and Larry? Was there any hurt/comfort when his wife kicked him out? When did they take the picture together that's in Larry's office?
Ben is also the only exception to my "no kids" rule, 'cause his kids are so fucking cute. <3 So Ben and Uncle Larry and the kids domestic fluff is totally ok if that's your thing.


Nelson Wright, David Labraccio

Slash preferred, gen is ok, but please don't pair either up with Rachel. Exploring how they first met or relations pre-movie would be fun, or angsting about relationships post-movie, or even just some fun bromance fic or school friends/rivals fic. Smut and/or PWP welcome, please no het.

More details:
If you like prompts, here's 50 sentences/prompts for Flatliners from my 1sentence challenge.
I love Dave's quintessential Nice Guy paired with Nelson's cocky Smart Ass. There's so much subtext in that movie - the "I need you to bring me back" and the "I don't want to be alone right now", the Dave smashing his truck window to help Nelson when he could have just untied the bloody canvas at the back of the truck, and oh god don't forget Nelson making his Last Phone Call to Dave('s apartment). Really, romantic or otherwise, there's obviously a whole shit load of history between them that's unexplained that I'd like to see. Or after movie follow up. Or missing scenes.
Or sex. You know. <3

ETA: Oh, I totally forgot to add this, but I added "Sometime Around Midnight" at the last minute because I saw the song and I love this band SO FUCKING HARD. <3 I'd even take Airborne Toxic Event RPF/S if that's your thing. Chatting with Noah was one of the funnest things Ever. Anyways, the song - so beautiful, it totally won me over to the band on first listen. I love the angst and regret and the idea of this yearned after lost romance. I'd REALLY like to see a same-gender songfic, where both of the characters are male or female. Or maybe the before or the after or just some porn in the spirit of the song OR you can cross this over with any of my fandoms. Awesome. <3

So, if you've read through all my obsessive rambling, congrats! I hope it's helped you out, and I hope you enjoy Yuletide! See you on Christmas!

Love and fluffy bunnies,
