Thank you so much, anonymous writer of cleverness and wonder, who wrote the adorable Legally Blonde: The Musical fic Heart of My Own for me in Yuletide this year!

It's set after the end of Legally Blonde: The Musical and it's so much better than that moviething that they did. As the summary says, "After the events of the show, Elle starts to put together the life she never knew she wanted." It's Elle/Emmett and it's perfect, with dashes of Elle's interactions with her parents, within the world, and in setting up a legal practice for herself. I adore Elle's drive and cleverness in the show (and first film) and this fic showcases exactly that.

Love, love, love. It's perfect.

Dear Brilliant Yuletide Writer:

Thank you! Thank you for offering to write in one of my relatively random requested fandoms! You are awesome and wonderful and I appreciate you so much!

I don't have much to say beyond my initial requests - everything below (other than the fandoms themselves) is more of a guideline and not a rule - except, please take into consideration my squick about gratuitous violence or death involving kids. I'm perfectly happy with fic of any rating or (other than violence against kids) theme. And I just realized that three of my four requests deal with immortality, at least to some degree. I wonder if that means something...

Galactic Milieu/Exiles Saga: I read the Milieu series first, and I've read those books more than the Exiles series. In other words, I adore Marc, and I adore Jon, so of course I'd be thrilled with anything that feels like canon, especially anything with Marc as Unifex spying on or interacting with Jon. But if your comfort level is more with Exiles, as long as it's Marc-centric, it'll be perfect. I think I might possibly prefer gen, but wherever your muse takes you would be fantastic.

Legally Blonde: The Musical: Oh, it's just fun! Plus, given that it's the musical and not the film, Legally Blonde II does not exist, and you can ignore it completely! So, something about Elle and Emmet set after the show ends, or Emmett backstory (iirc he went to Stanford undergrad, which, using the musical's timeline could put him there at the same time as Chuck Bartowski, Bryce Larkin and Sam Winchester. Or not, if you're not familiar with either Chuck or SPN), or any of the students (while in school, or post-grad) volunteering for the OTW - basically, LB is my favorite musical of whimsy joy and playfulness. Plus, I love pink, and the law.

The Eight: It's my perpetual "ask". Don't feel limited by the characters I listed on the sign-up form; they are my four favorites, but they don't need to be the focus of your story. I've read The Fire and enjoyed it, but part of me would prefer something that is AU to that (or, to paraphrase a line from the Harry Potter fandom, Fire, What Fire?). In other words, I prefer Cat/Nim to Cat/Solarin, and Nim/Cat/Solarin to anything else in the modern section of the story. (But if you'd rather write Talleyrand/Napoleon, SQUEE!)

RPS: Heroes (Adrian/Milo): Well, there's this, and a million other moments caught on film and a million that never were. AU or reality-based - anything you want to do will be gorgeous. (I don't have a fictional-infidelity-squick in this case as long as there is no overt Natalie bashing.)

What I want from the Disney/Marvel Merger Thingy:

1. Major Marvel movie incorporation into Disney Studios. The Great Movie Ride deserves a major refurb, and incorporating Marvel films into it would be fantastic. But not all of it. I mean, Wolverine jumping at you instead of the creature from Alien would be terrific; replacing Gene Kelly in the Singin' In the Rain scene there with a singing Hugh Jackman is probably not necessary.

2. Marvel-inspired stuff where the clubs at Pleasure Island used to be. Tony Stark could "buy the place out", set up a few good burger joints, web-ify the old surf club. Lots of possibilities.

3. A good comic book store where the Virgin Megastore used to be. A really huge, excellent comic book store with museum-quality action figure and old issue displays.

4. A new resort based on Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

What I want from the new season of Heroes (and yes, I know some spoilers but none are revealed here, hence the lack of cut-tag):

1. Petrellis interacting with each other.

2. Claude. Ideally interacting with Petrellis. Or at least Peter.

3. No new Petrellis.*

* Sylar would not count as "new". That's just retconning.

What I want from the new season of Supernatural (and yes, I know some spoilers but none are revealed here, hence the lack of cut-tag)

1. A Leverage crossover

2. Bodyswap.

3. Gender swap wherein Jessica Alba plays Dean and Alexis Bleidel plays Sam.

4. Anything filmed at the Vancouver Aquarium, which is probably the only location in Vancouver that hasn't been used for filming yet. The belugas there are gorgeous. Has the Leverage crew stolen water mammals yet?

5. Ghostfacers.

And one spoilery thing I want re Sueprnatural )

My brain is a little fried right now because I just finished a major project and have an insane SPN plot bunny, but since I finally saw SPN 3.02 last night, I have some thoughts, in poll-form.

All spoilery, so all behind the cut... )

I have Legally Blonde: The Musical on my DVR to watch when I get home. I have the cast recording which I generally like except for one characterization issue that changed re Elle from the film to the show but I'm looking forward to seeing the whole of the show.

After Heroes, that is! I need to go post my Charm Attack vid over on [livejournal.com profile] heroes_vids....
