HELLO AUTHOR! IT’S YULETIDE!
i’ve done yuletide roughly three hundred thousand times and every year it’s a horror and a joy, so in advance!! thank you so much for your story! thank you for taking a hot second out of capitalistpalooza to write a story!! i can’t wait to read it!!
(TATER WARNING: MANY GIFS WITHIN)
i like: banter, absurdity, plot is fun!!!!, slice of life stories are amazing, well-written female characters every-fuckin-where, 5 things stories, character studies, big goddamn ensembles
i dislike: violence, racism, misogyny, a/b/o, humiliation, emotional abuse LOL YOU KNOW THOSE COMMON TROPES THAT ARE TOTALLY ONLY IN FIC AND NOT REAL LIFE.
so, onto the actual fandoms/requests!!
Hamilton - Miranda
so, please fuck me up. hamilton/washington AND/OR hamilton/everyone. i also love hamilton/laurens so if that somehow ends up in the mix, fucking wonderful. YAY.
if historical slash isn’t your thing to write!!! i’d love some period-specific ensemble fic, or a modern au, or. god. whatever. anything. coded epistolary porn would be a fun thing if you’re a glutton for punishment!!
…...i’m on the LMM/groffsauce train. they seem to have so much disgusting fun together and they’re gigantic fucking dorks who adore each other, so if there’s a ship, let it be that one?? and they’ve known each other FOREVER. ugh help dig me out of this hole
that being said!!! i would LOVE a massive ensemble fic with appearances from everyone, something where nothing much happens but it’s fun to read.
also, a note (that i’m borrowing from a friend):
(a note: if you do end up writing this [HAMILTON RPF], i’d like to request that you please archive lock your fic. normally this doesn’t bug me one way or the other for rpf, but since hamilton is currently at a cultural apex, the fandom is very enthusiastic and the young, internet-savvy cast loves to interact with them, it feels like a perfect storm for fourth wall-breaking. archive locking is definitely the safest bet for lmm & co. not finding out that somebody wrote about them kissing or whatever. thank you in advance!!)
[my own totally weird standard is that if LMM is on tumblr every day, and knows about jgroffdaily, i just don’t want to break that last brick of the fourth wall.]
Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
i’m an english lit person and yet somehow it took me until just a few weeks ago to read northanger abbey—holy fucking shit i fucking loved it. i loved its wry voice and how completely and utterly modern it read in its characterizations and, ugh, just everything. i’d love a story that, more than anything, could get that voice? maybe it could be set during those couple of days at the abbey when general tilney leaves and it’s just catherine, eleanor, and henry hanging out at the house and just being HAPPY? that could be adorable.
Crimson Peak (2015)
as of the writing of this letter, i don’t know what the movie is about except “hot people” “gothic romance” “sins of the past made manifest” and “hot people”, so, uh, YOUR CALL. HOT PEOPLE, SIGHING DRAMATICALLY. gothic romcom: also amazing. honestly, even after i see it, i’ll probably think exactly the same thing, so vaya con dios into the land of blood and cravats.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (TV)
lol ok so my faves are below and i would love anything about any of them:
- JOSH CHARLES AND ALL OF CAMP TIGERCLAW. OH MY GOD, I WOULD LOVE A CAMP TIGERCLAW FIC. MAYBE THEY CAN TALK ABOUT BOAT WAXING. BOATS GET WAXED, RIGHT? i read it in a book once.
- elizabeth banks and chris pine’s whole storyline. don’t let that dirty plaid shirt masquerading as a human man be the last we hear of his stupid face!!!!
- mckinley and ben. forever. especially more of ben’s fucked up home, holy shit, those little glimpses in the show were terrifying. pleeeeease.
thank you again for doing yuletide!!! i hope you have fun!!
