Yuletide Letter 2014

Dear Yulegoat,

First of all, let me just say that I'm super-excited to read what you come up with, no matter what it is! I'm not real picky, so just relax and go with whatever moves you -- as they say, optional details are optional. You can find my fic here if you'd like to get a better idea of what I enjoy. I've also listed some general likes/dislikes at the end of this post, so please read on!

Tron: Legacy (2010)
Clu and Flynn: two sides of the same coin? I'd love something that explores their duality/sameness. Especially if it's set in the good ol' days before the Coup, when everything was... perfect. :3 Porn is welcome, as are platonic feels; I love everything about these two and their stubborn, crazy obsession with changing the world. Tug my heartstrings!

I'd love to see this done with a touch of selfcest slash, but if you're not into that, platonic and/or parental feels work just as well... I love Clu as Flynn's loyal & obsessed but increasingly bitter "son", as well as his creepy/sexy/mirror-image other half. A literal/supernatural take on their connection is also welcome -- can they "feel" each other? Do they finish each others' thoughts? Does Clu share any of Flynn's memories... or vice versa? :3 And just what was the Perfect System supposed to be like, anyway?

I'd like something which deals with the Tron '82/Legacy movie timeline. Including the Betrayal comics is also fine, but I'm not real interested in Tron: Evolution or Uprising.

Warhammer 40,000
I'd like a Night Lords story with Talos and Septimus, please. I'd love to see some Chaos Marine/human porn (perhaps Talos would like to punish -- or reward -- his slave?), simply because I'd love to see something which explodes/explores the idea that Space Marines are asexual, but if you're not into that idea, an adventure (in midnight clad!), intrigue, or fight scene would be awesome. I love Octavia, too, so please feel free to include her if you'd like; the same goes with the rest of First Claw and the other Night Lords. I'm familiar with the series through to the end, so no worries about spoilers.

If you're up for it, I'd love to see a depiction of what the Marines are like to touch/taste/etc; the massive-superhuman thing is intriguing! I also love Septimus' practical resignation to (and occasional enjoyment of) his life as a heretic... he strikes me as a character who has gone Beyond Good and Evil in the Nietzschean sense, and if you'd like to explore that aspect of his character I'd be overjoyed. If you do a fight/adventure thing, I'd love to see the Night Lords go up against the Dark Angels (due to the rivalry developed at Thramas), Imperial Fists (they're so uptight, it'd be fun!), or Ultramarines (also uptight!) Bonus points if Septimus holds his own, too... whether fighting or otherwise :3

Imperial Radch Series - Ann Leckie
I would love to see Kalr Five and Mercy of Kalr team up to give Breq the togetherness she longs for -- they know they can't ever replace Justice of Toren, but that doesn't mean they can't try! Anything from explicit sex to sleepy platonic snuggles is fine with me (the part where Breq longs to crawl into bed with the human decades was adorable!) If that doesn't intrigue you, anything with the three of them is fine: adventure, or a bit of fun, or maybe a mystery? I loved the scenes where MoK spoke "through" Five and the other soldiers, as well as the parts with Breq working to manipulate and/or bribe her new decades into fighting form <3 Extra points for exploring the nature/feelings of the Ships, too...

This about says it all. I love Breq in all her contradictory Ship-yet-human glory, and I thought Kalr Five and the other human!"ancillaries" were super adorable foils for her. Please smush them together for me. <3 See my general likes for a bunch of buttons you can push with this fandom:

General Likes/Dislikes:
-I like slash, gen, het, humor, adventure, action, emotion-heavy fic, fic written in canon style, character studies, etc. Just about anything goes. Content all the way from G to hard NC-17 is fine.
-I like sex and/or violence to pretty much any degree -- I'm fine with dubcon and often out-and-out noncon, though torturefic-for-torture's-sake often doesn't do it for me.
-I like villains (and thus thoughtful explorations of power, cruelty, control, the willingness to do bad things for good (or bad!) ends, etc.)
-I like themes of parents and children, free will, programming and mind control, resistance and surrender, rebellion, order and chaos, machines and people (and explorations of what makes such beings "real"), technology, family versus duty/ambition, shades of grey and ambiguity, etc. Thinky-thoughts are generally good.
-I like my kinks: size, body/facial hair, a dash of power struggle, and some genuine warmth to go along with it.

-I don't like character-bashing, pairing-bashing, or idea-bashing. Which is not to say I want a fic full of 100% positive portrayals, just that I'd rather see something closer to canon than something that's really down on one or two characters.
-I don't like heavy religious themes. If it's present in the canon, given a different twist, and/or explored with care it's fine -- I love the program/User theme in Tron -- but otherwise it's just not my thing.
-I don't like underage sex, scat or water sports (though mild blood play can be OK, and semen play is awesome), or AUs which go too far afield. What-ifs which arise from canon are wonderful, but fics where the characters suddenly have wings, fangs, a career which is totally unrelated to canon, a complicated hidden lifestyle, or a magical baby aren't my favorites.
-Holiday-themed fic is not my favorite thing, although it's fine if it's consistent with canon (for example, Warehouse 13 has had holiday episodes, so a holiday fic would fit.)

I hope this helps -- please feel free to leave an anonymous comment or contact me through the yule-mods if you need to. Lastly: thank you thank you thank you! <3
