Dear Yule Writer 2016!

Hello, dear Yule writer! I'm so excited that we matched and I hope you have a great time Yuletiding for me! Please be assured that I am SUPER easy to please. All I want for Christmas is Kiefer. :3

Signup Summary:
AO3 name: Zoi no miko (zoi_no_miko)
Dark City - John, Daniel
Flatliners - Nelson, Dave
Mirrors - any (Ben, Larry, Angie, or Daisy)

I'm bad at giving prompts but to help guide here's some things I like and a few things that make me NOPE:

General Likes: Slash, Romance, smut, fluff, anything involving the requested characters furthering their relationship in some manner (romantic or friendly-like). Cracktastic crossovers and AUs. Epic!Plot is fun if that's your thing, but I'm happy just with relationship stuff or plotless fluffy moments in time. <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. I am also okay with same-sex-same-generation incest or doppleganger-cest if that does it for you, which I guess could come up in a cracktastic crossover? I'm actually okay with A/B/O and knotting as long as it does not involve or lead to Mpreg in any way. It's an interesting dynamic to explore.

General Dislikes: Mpreg, furry, het (unless it's genderswap, that can be fun, although double gender swap is better because lesbians!), pedo, scat, deathfic, completely unresolved angst. Use of the word "cum" (with that spelling), character assassination

1) Dark City - John Murdoch, Daniel Schreber

This has been my primary fandom for umpteen years, to the point where it's tattooed on my arm. So really, anything with these two being awesome will make me ridiculously happy. They're my OTP but I also really enjoy the few friend-fics I've read of them too. I'm engrossed in the idea that, with the way the movie ends, they'd need each other to keep going forward. The only two humans in the city truly aware of it's nature and history. John would need Daniel to adjust into society. Daniel would need him as an anchor in a world where he has nothing but a desire to atone. (I also have a lot of feels about Daniel being co-protagonist/true protagonist.)
And if you haven't seen this movie, please please go watch it! The Director's cut. It won't disappoint.

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, AUs are great too - anything from the "X tiny thing changed in canon" type AU to "completely different universe" AU - 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!) <3 Any other characters and pairings from the movie are welcome but not required. I'm also a fan of Emma-Anna/May if it tickles your fancy to throw in some background lesbians.

Now, just because that's my favorite fandom doesn't mean I want it over everything else. In fact, I'm just as happy to get these other fandoms because I don't personally write about them as much and they probably need more fandom love.

2) Flatliners - Nelson Wright, David Labraccio

The interactions between these two characters totally made this movie, in my humble opinion. Best friends, friendly competition, maybe more? I love how they both seem to be the only ones who can effect the others stubborn nature. 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.

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

3) Mirrors - Any (Ben Carson, Larry Byrne, Angie Carson, Daisy Carson)

I highly doubt we matched on this, but if we did match on one of the girls instead of Kiefer, it's because I realized that seeing one of these ladies kick ass could make for a really awesome fic. Angie fix-it? Yes please. Angie-as-a-badass ghost lady? Angie finding her brother behind the mirrors? Daisy growing up to be a badass Supernatural investigator because she wants to find her dad? So down.

As for the menfolk - I love Ben as a character, I really adore him. He's definitely my second favorite Kiefer. He just seems like a genuinely good guy that's just had so much shit happen to him.
And Larry, well... I know he's got so little screen time that it's pretty impossible to work with him as a character (though I personally love the next-to-blank slate!) but Jason Flemyng is so, SO awesome and sexy in that "rugged ginger bloke with amazing mouth" way that I just.... Unf.

Ben/Larry is the tiny little pairing of my heart, so anything with them interacting in a positive fashion is really really great. 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. 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 And if you're writing about the girls and happen to throw them into the background as a ship/ust/brotp the background that would also be super, super amazing.

And if you're here to write me treats, bless your lovely little heart.

I like basically every fandom involving Kiefer Sutherland (though again, not big on het).

Crossover/AUs: I also have a weakness for amazeballs world building concepts like Inception and Pacific Rim and some of my favorite shows on TV are Hannibal, White Collar, Black Sails, Agent Carter, Penny Dreadful, Firefly, Limitless, Primeval, Fringe, Sense8 and AMC's Humans. <3

ETA: Yuletide community initiatives:
I am okay with the following for any of my fandoms:
Interactive Fanfiction (Can you imagine how interesting this could be?)
Crossovers: between the fandoms above, any mainstream scifi with cool worldbuilding other than Star Wars (though you might need to provide some context/worldbuilding explaination if I haven't seen it), and any other Kiefer Sutherland movie where he's not a murdering dick. Phone Booth & 24 are okay. :D
Yuleporn: YES.

early Yule ficlet
Both his brother and Sir Francis had warned Daniel to avoid this area of Port Royale. They had cautioned him that no one came here but pirates, thieves and whores. The young doctor supposes it’s true enough. The people he sees around him look rather disreputable. Still, the young doctor does not allow that to dissuade him. His small clinic is on the edge of this neighborhood and he has treated more than a few of those thieves and whores. Because of this, he’s mostly left alone, no one does more than glare at him as he slips through the crowd.

The whorehouse is just ahead. He quickens his pace. He had treated May and several of the other ladies working there for their various ailments. He was fond of the pretty blonde so when she had sent him a message begging him to come right away, he had not hesitated. Whatever had happened must be bad.

“You should leave,” May repeats yet again. The three pirates ignore her.

“She’s right,” Leon gasps as he tries to sit up. John crosses the room impatiently and gently presses the young sailor down on the bed.

“Lie still, dammit.” He chides the younger man softly.

“Sorry, Captain.” Leon apologizes.

“The doctor will be here soon,” May reminds them. “No one knows Leon but you three are infamous. If he recognizes you…”

“He can’t talk if we cut out his tongue.” Anna’s been honing the wicked blade she keeps tucked in her boot.

“Don’t you threaten him,” May glares at the lady pirate. “He’s a good man, it’s not his fault his brother is a navy captain and his cousin is the royal governor.”

“No one’s going to hurt him,” Larry moves to stand between the young whore and the lady pirate. “May’s right. Even if this doctor doesn’t say anything to his kin, it’s still dangerous for us to be seen here.”

“I’m not leaving Leon here unguarded.” Captain John Murdoch reminds his first mate. “If Hand’s crew finds out he’s here, neither Leon or the ladies will be safe.”

“Fine, you can stay,” May tells them. “Just keep out of sight.”

There is a small stir downstairs.

“Daniel’s here.” May herds the three pirates into her bedroom. “Stay in here and let me handle things.”
She shuts the door and turns just as Daniel comes up the stairs.

Re: early Yule ficlet
BADASS LADY PIRATE ANNA AHHHHHHH~~~~ *flails* Who clearly avails herself of the Lovely Ladies herself. Or maybe just one lady. Ehehehe.

Poor Daniel's going to get so caught up with these pretty rapscallions! And then what will happen? Will he convince John to turn privateer? Maybe Larry gets blown overboard in the midst of a sea battle and is picked up by Ben's ship sometime later? Does he recognize Larry? Does he fall in love anyway? Maybe England starts dicking around the colony and the Royal Governor becomes convinced to declare independence (with the aid of a pretty sailor boy)?

Re: early Yule ficlet
I'm rather taken with Pirate Anna. (who is totally smitten with a pretty blonde prostitute)

I also really like the image of Larry in scruffy pirate gear. <3

I'm glad you like the ficlet. I may try and expand on it.

I would NEVER discourage more pirates. :D :D :D

Re: early Yule ficlet

Frank isn’t sure if he approves of Daniel’s insistence of having his clinic so close to the most disreputable area of Port Royale. He understands that Daniel wants to help the poor but it’s dangerous. The small house is set between a warehouse and tobacco shop. He tells his coachman to wait and climbs the steps to the door.

He’s surprised to find a young man hobbling about on a crutch in the foyer.

“Doctor Daniel’s out on a call, sir.” The boy greets him. “Would you like to wait?”

“Are you working for the doctor?” Frank asks. The youth is lovely, slim and strong with wide blue eyes and neatly trimmed dark hair. He’s dressed in a neatly patched linen shirt and breeches. One leg is bandaged and splinted but the other is encased in a striped stocking and buckled shoe. Daniel hasn’t said anything about hiring a helper. Maybe he’s a patient.

“No, sir,” The boy answers. “I can’t go back to sea until my leg is healed and the doctor is letting me sleep upstairs in return for doing a few chores.”

“Sea? You’re a sailor?” Frank asks. The boy seems too young, barely out of his teens. Still, there are cabin boys as young as eleven.

“Aye, sir,” The boy smiles. “I started as a powder monkey and worked my way up to gunner’s mate.”

“How did you get hurt?” Frank asks. The boy’s not in the navy. Ben would have told Frank if any of his men were hurt. Pirate? But, the boy doesn’t seem the sort. Some of the big merchant ships had guns to fight off pirates.

“Our ship was attacked by The Stranger.” The young man tells him.

“Ah,” Frank frowns. The Stranger is a pirate ship captained by Clayton Hand. Only why hadn’t the attack been reported. Most of the merchant captains will come storming into his office to complain. “I hadn’t heard of any recent attacks.”

“It was nearer Trinidad than here.” The boy tells him. “The surgeon there wanted to cut off my leg. The captain decided to bring me here to see if Doctor Daniel could save it.”

“And I see he did.” Franks smiles. The captain likely reported the attack in Trinidad. He must have a good captain. The loss of his leg would have ended the boy’s career. Before he can ask the young man more, he hears footsteps on the steps.

“Frank? What are you doing here?”

Frank turns to find his cousin standing in the doorway. “I came to tell you the Mirror’s been sighted. Ben should be at port in a few hours.”

“Thank you,” Daniel smiles. “I hope everything went well.”

“I’m sure Ben is fine.” Frank smiles. “Do you want to come down to the dock with me?”
“I can watch things here,” The boy offers.

“Thank you, Leon.” Daniel smiles at the youth before turning to his cousin. “Let’s go.”

In the carriage, Frank asks Daniel about the boy, Leon.

“What about him?” Daniel seems surprised by the question. “His leg is recovering nicely but I think he’s a bit bored with sitting about my office so I’ve been teaching him to read.”

“Of course you have,” Frank cannot help but smile at that. “I mean what is his ship and who is his captain?”

Daniel frown thoughtfully, “I do not think he’s ever named his ship, or, if he has, I have forgotten it. I think he said it was out of the Americas not England though.”

Frank frowns. Daniel has an astonishingly good memory. It seems unlikely he would have forgotten. Although, if he were too busy trying to save the boy’s leg he might have been too distracted to pay close attention. “What about the captain?”

“I did not meet him but his name is John something.” Daniel doesn’t seem interested.

John something? Frank tries to recall. There is an American ship out of the Carolinas called the Charlotte Belle and Captained by a Captain Johnstone. Perhaps that’s the ship. He’ll have to remember to ask the boy the next time he see him.

Oh Frank. :3 Stop investigating and just flirt with the cute young man. Things will go much better, trust me. ;) hahaha

I love it. And of course Hand is the Ned Low of the story, that asshole :3
