Dear Yuletide Author

Thank you so much for the story you're going to write! I'm so looking forward to reading it.

Anything you write will be amazing, I know, but here are some ideas if you're looking for one.

For the History Boys:

The thing I love most about this film/play is that it reminds me of all of my favorite college classes. That and the way the boys are learning how to be who they will become. Posner is by far my favorite. I love his melancholy and the way he's searching for a way to fit in with the other boys. I love the way they've learned to communicate with poetry as a sort of shorthand and how it's used as almost a translator when they don't have their own words.

I'm a huge Pos/Scripps shipper, and they are my favorite pairing. Scripps' quiet support and attempt to get Posner to see who he is apart from Dakin intrigues me.

I also love the dynamic between Posner and Irwin and would love to see that explored (shippy or not).

My favorite kind of stories are ones that follow them to Oxford and beyond and seeing how their time there reinforces or destroys their ideals of what that place would be. And I love stories where Posner slowly learns to get over Dakin or where we see him as a teacher finding something more satisfying than 'not happy but not unhappy about it.'


For Bomb Girls:

This show is a recent addition to my watch list, and I love the dynamic between Marco and Mrs. Corbett. I like the tension between her duty to her husband the war hero and the taboo allure that Marco represents. I so wish they had kept the two of them together, and any fixit fics for their relationship would be amazing. Either that or just the way they play off each other and push each other to think about things they'd rather ignore.


For Hamlet:

For this one I requested Hamlet and two of his foils: Laertes and Horatio. I'd love to see something of the relationship of Hamlet and Laertes and how their thoughts/feelings for Ophelia play into that. I love the relationship between Hamlet and Horatio as well (and yes, I ship it a bit), and would love to see more of that and maybe some h/c type fic with Horatio helping Hamlet through his father's death.


For Lucifer:

I love everything about this comic, but mostly I love the side characters. I would love to see a fic from Mazikeen's perspective delving into her unwavering loyalty and her love for Lucifer.

I'd also love anything with Bergelmir, either with Jill or his adventures on his own before or after meeting her.

I'm still working out this Dreamwidth thing. (Importing takes forever, does it not? Though I suppose that's to be expected with such a mass exodus.) I may or may not simply start posting here and mirroring on LJ. I'll still respond to comments both places, of course, and I'll still be keeping up with the LJ friendslist.

Is there a Dreamwidth version of LJ Login or Juggler? Or do either of those work on Dreamwidth? I know Login worked on IJ. I'd like to stick with Chrome as a browser though. It seems to be working for me.



In non-LJ related news, I cannot believe it's almost Christmas. I foresee tomorrow will involve much baking and working out the logistics of having Christmas when Tabitha has to be at the hospital every four hours or so. (I am not allowed in with the munchkins until the cold is gone. It's sad-making, but totally understandable, so I don't mind so much.) I think I'm done with the Christmas shopping, but I may try to run out to Old Navy tomorrow (eek, Missoula traffic on Christmas Eve!) because they apparently have cute, long-sleeved onesies for preemies. Though Jasiah is almost grown out of his preemie clothes now.

If I don't manage to make it online again before then, have a happy Christmas everybody. And a belatedly happy solstice. And a continuously happy Hanukkah. Just be happy, folks.

I always forget that I do actually have a DW account. I'm trying out this crossposting thing just to see how it works and in case LJ implodes for real or there is actually a mass exodus. I may even see about creating some RP accounts over here. We'll have to see.

Anyway, I'm in MT now. I got to actually touch the twins today, and tomorrow I may get to hold Jasiah, provided I manage to get up early enough. Which means it's bedtime for me very, very soon. Like now. Or after I reply to a few tags but definitely before I think about creating DW RP accounts.

Self-control. I has it.
