Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi there! Thank you for writing a story for me! It's so cool that you are also interested in one of these tiny fandoms. I am writing this letter in case you want to look for more ideas, and also because I enjoy this chance to ramble on about my favorite canons, but feel free to totally ignore it if you're not interested. Mostly I hope you have a good time writing a fic that you like--whatever you come up with, I will be pleased as punch to read a fic about the characters I requested.

In general, I like a lot of different stuff! I'm a big fan of fanfic that really draws on canon, imitating the style of the source or expanding on details from canon. I like a story with a plot, sure, but I also often really enjoy fic that isn't very plotty--I like short pieces, vignettes, missing scenes, whatever. I like stories that are basically just characters talking about stuff. (Which might explain why I've got two Asimov requests this year, heh.) I like to find out interesting details about even the most apparently boring and mundane topics. I like adventure, exposition, humor, hurt/comfort, language, mysteries, science, slice-of-life, UST, wordplay, worldbuilding, &c.

I'm not really interested in reading explicit sex. I'm not a big fan of character death, characters having children, or transplant AUs: basically, I tend to prefer fic where the status quo remains more or less intact.

If you're a writer who likes to read up on their recipient, my main online presence these days is on tumblr, where I am reasonably active and mainly post fandom-related stuff. There's also my account on the AO3.

My requests, and accompanying fandom-specific rambling:

Gravity Falls, Stan Pines
Lucky Starr - Isaac Asimov, John Bigman Jones
Robot series - Isaac Asimov, Susan Calvin/Peter Bogert
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) - Hermey/Yukon Cornelius

Gravity Falls, Stan Pines )

Lucky Starr - Isaac Asimov, John Bigman Jones )

Robot series - Isaac Asimov, Susan Calvin/Peter Bogert )

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964), Hermey/Yukon Cornelius )


So, uh, anyhoo. As always, optional details are optional. Most of all I hope you have fun writing a story that you like--and I'm sure I'll love it too! Whatever you come up with, it will be so great to read a story in any of these fandoms. Thanks again, and happy Yuletide!
