kristin: (random: yuletide)
Thank you in advance for your awesomeness, author! I hope you find this letter helpful, but feel free to ignore any and all of it. Optional details are optional, and I would rather read a fic my author was invested in than one catering to my whims.

(Also, yes, large chunks of this were c/p'ed from previous year’s letters. Also, all three of these are variants on things I've requested in the past. This doesn't mean I wasn't delighted with what I received before, it just means that I'm greedy.)

Here is some non-fandom specific stuff that might help you:

  • Find me: [archiveofourown.org profile] Kristin (Ao3) | kristin (#yuletide)

  • I tend to throw out a lot of prompts in my requests. There are none I would like to see more than the others and no need to try and combine all of the prompts into a frankenfic.

  • I am OK with character death/in-fic violence/gore/swearing/unhappy endings etc. and I love apocafic. If you run out of other ideas, kill (almost) everybody in the world off and I will love it. The darker and creepier the better.

  • I prefer gen to het/slash/femslash

  • I prefer not to read: character bashing, infidelity, pregnancy/kidfic, incest, schmoop, 2nd person and PWPs.

  • I love: plot, ensembles, adventures, banter, found families, fully realized characters and settings, interesting narrative voices and people who bring the funny.

ALL HAIL THE YULETIDE WRITER

First off, thank you so much for writing for me. I am sure I will love whatever you create. Optional details are optional, so feel free to ignore all of this blather as I would rather have you enjoy writing a fic than worrying about trying to please me. (Also, yes, bits of this were c/p'ed from last year's letter, of which some was copied from the year before that, and even some stuff from the year before that or the year before that.)

Here is some non-fandom specific stuff that might help you:

  • I tend to throw out a lot of prompts in my requests. Not only are they all optional, but there is no need to try to cram all of the prompts into one, and there are none I would like to see more than the others.

  • I am OK with character death and in-fic violence and I love apocafic. If you run out of other ideas, kill (almost) everybody in the world off and I will love it. The darker and creepier the better.

  • I prefer gen to het/slash/femslash and would not like to receive porn for Yuletide.

  • I like: plot, ensembles, banter, found families, fully realized characters and settings, adventures, interesting narrative voices and people who bring the funny.

  • I dislike: character bashing, infidelity, kidfic, ignoring the women and characters of color, introspective character pieces, incest, schmoop and pwp.

  • IRC I can often be found in the #yuletide chatroom. I use the nickname kristin (or sometimes hippo-kristin), so you can avoid or stalk as you please.

Dearest darlingest adorable author,

First off, thank you so much for writing for me. I am sure I will love whatever you create. Optional details are optional, so feel free to ignore all of this blather as I would rather have you enjoy writing a fic than worrying about trying to please me. (Also, yes, bits of this were c/p'ed from last year's letter, of which some was copied from the year before that, and even some stuff from the year before that.)

  • I am OK with character death and in-fic violence and I love apocafic. If you run out of other ideas, kill (almost) everybody in the world off and I will love it.

  • Racial diversity = awesome. Racism, not so much. However, I do prefer realism over sugar-coated, so if you want your fic to deal realistically with it I would not object.

  • I prefer gen to het/slash/femslash and would not like to receive porn for Yuletide.

  • I like: plot, ensembles, banter, found families, fully realized characters and settings, adventures, interesting narrative voices and people who bring the funny.

  • I dislike: character bashing, romance-centric fic, infidelity, kidfic, ignoring the women and characters of color, introspective character pieces, incest, schmoop and pwp.

Hello there gorgeous,

(For being my Yuletide author you are surely kind and wonderful and talented and, yes, gorgeous.)

First off, thank you so much for writing for me. I am sure I will love whatever you create, whether you read this letter or not. Optional details are optional, so feel free to ignore all of this blather if you prefer writing with fewer details. However, if you like long-winded prompts, details about my request and the availability of the fandoms, this is the letter for you.

But first, here is some non-fandom specific stuff that might help you. (Also, yes, bits of this were c/p'ed from last year's letter, of which some was copied from the year before that.)
  • If you include porn in your fic, I will scroll past it.

  • I am OK with character death and I love apocafic. If you run out of other ideas, kill (almost) everybody in the world off and I will love it.

  • Racial diversity = awesome. Isms, not so much. However, I do prefer realism over sugar-coated, so if you want your fic to deal realistically with -isms I would not object.

  • I like: plot, ensembles, banter, found families, apocafic, fully realized characters and settings, adventures, interesting narrative voices and people who bring the funny.

  • I dislike: character bashing, romance-centric fic, infidelity, high school AUs, kidfic, ignoring the women and characters of color, introspective character pieces, incest, schmoop and pwp.

  • How to stalk me: It is a Yuletide tradition to stalk your recipient. To that end: my delicious & my fic. I can also often be found in the #yuletide chatroom. I use the nickname kristin, so you can avoid or stalk as you please.

And now for the fandom specific stuff:

Congrats for getting through that beast of a letter, and may your yuletide be filled with awesome things that do not include stressing about pleasing me. (For I am easy, fic-wise.)

Dear lovely Yuletide author,

Most importantly: you are awesome.

Thank you so much for writing a fic for me! I am sure I will love whatever you create! I want a fic that the author was happy writing, so feel free to ignore this if you work best without extra info.

I've included my requests as well as some additional information about why these fandoms are awesome. But first here is some non-fandom specific stuff that might help you.
  • If you include porn in your fic I will probably scroll past it.

  • I am ok with character death and I love apocafic. If you run out of other ideas, kill (almost) everybody in the world off and I will love it.

  • I also love positive racial diversity lots. If you want some beta help in that regards, or just want to check out an awesome project, go to [community profile] dark_agenda. (Also, should go without saying, but please don't racefail.)

  • I like: plot, ensembles, banter, found families, fully realized settings, adventures, interesting narrative voices and people who bring the funny.

  • I dislike: character bashing, romance-centric fic, infidelity, kidfic, ignoring women and characters of color, introspective character pieces, incest, schmoop, gratuitous angst, h/c, pwp, and mpreg.

  • How to stalk me: It is a time honored Yuletide tradition to stalk your recipient. To that end: my delicious & my fic. I can often be found in the #yuletide chatroom. I use the nickname kristin, so you can avoid or stalk as you please.

Wow! Ok, so this yule letter is long enough to qualify to be a Yuletide fic. Congrats for making it through, and again, thank you for writing for one of my small fandoms.
