oh boy hello
hi, yuletide writer! it’s like what, six weeks until christmas and i’m already thrilled to read what you churn out, aaaaah!!!!
- plot is fun!!!!
- slice of life stories are amazing
- well-written female characters every-fuckin-where
and a little more about my prompts that were puked out in a scatterbrained fugue state:
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
So, this movie was. fucking hysterical. for so many reasons? and it asked a whole lot more questions than it answered. And for a spy thriller, it felt a lot more rushed and realistically slapdash than the perfect-clockwork of other spy movie plots, which made it all the more fun!
But I’ll be totally up front with you: the fic I would love to read is a canon divergence where Cathy and Viktor team up to fuck over Jack and then take over the world with her smarts and his hamminess. JUST BECAUSE. JUST FOR FUN. Because they have roughly 30,000 light years more chemistry than Cathy/Jack annnnnd because it’d be fun to read.
Sleepy Hollow (TV)
I’m LOVING Sleepy Hollow and the fucking insane ways that they shove the occult into America’s revolutionary history. So since we’ve already seen Ichabod unpaid interning for Ben Franklin, fighting alongside George Washington, taking shit from Thomas Jefferson- any story that comes out of this source material is fucking amazing, haha.
Dream fic request: a mashup of Sleepy Hollow and the musical 1776. I DON’T KNOW HOW. MAYBE ICHABOD WATCHES CSPAN AND WONDERS WHY NO ONE IS SINGING. MAYBE HE TRIES TO TELL HIS STORIES IN SONG. MAYBE HE SPENDS MOST OF HIS TIME SEWING UP HIS COAT AND COMPOSING SONGS FOR FUTURE MOMENTS. I don’t knoooooow but it would be beautiful if the past Ichabod lived in was also full of spontaneous musical numbers. (oops here's a playlist of songs from the musical how did this get here)
Coriolanus - Shakespeare
I’d be lying if I said I nominated this for a reason other than sex, violence, and Saturnalia.
White House Down (2013)
JFC this movie’s just so damn fun. I’d love to see the further adventures of Emily Cale like, 5-10-15 years down the line, or the President/John Cale as Prez/Secret Service cover 5EVA, or Emily, HER MOM, and Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal’s badass Secret Service lady) having some crazy adventures- anything, anything.
