I have three fandoms that I definitely want to nominate: Tomorrow People 2013, Julian May's Galactic Milieu novels and Tuff Turf (for which there is absolutely NO fic on Ao3 and isn't that a crime of Downey-Spader proportions?).

But what should my 4th be?

Recommendations, suggestions and requests, while noting that Fantastic Beasts: The Movie Series is not eligible because Harry Potter.

No, probably not, but with the announcement today that James Spader will be Ultron in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, and the awesome flashbacks to Tuff Turf on tumblr and twitter (including Whedon's tweet today) I've decided that since there are NO fics for the movie on AO3, I'm definitely asking for Tuff Turf for Yuletide - and I may offer to write it, too.

(I'm also asking for Tomorrow People Old Series and this year's reboot of it. Wow, can I actually be done with planning my YT request choices already and it isn't even September yet?)

I got to write a Political Animals fic for [livejournal.com profile] tascioni, who asked for a fic in which TJ was happy, which let me mentally revisit Washington DC & Kramerbooks over the holidays, throw a Love Actually reference in and title it with a line from the Panic! At the Disco/fun. song C'Mon, which is the TJ and/or Jack Benjamin Song of my Heart.

It's technically mature (Yes! I wrote shagging!!) and it's TJ/Sean Reeves, and you can find it here

What Would My Head Be Like?
Not a coffee shop AU, but there is coffee, a shop, TJ and Sean. And it's Christmas once again.

(Oh, and does anyone know what PA or other comms I can post to?)

We're at Disney this week and will spend today in an über-version of the Jewish tradition of going to movies - we're off to Hollywood Studios! We did the MK yesterday and were in before rope-drop so it was basically empty for hours, so we got to have lunch at Be Our Guest and clock 25 rides/shows/meets.

And I woke up this morning to a delicious Galactic Milieu fic by an awesomely brilliant writer who clearly knows what I like and adore - angsty brothers! - and you can read it at http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2012/works/599720

My review was thus: You are the best Yuletide stalker ever! This is the most perfectly heartbreaking, kind-bending, beautifully soul-crushing set of Milieu tales and I cannot thank you enough. I'm crying here at six in the morning for all the utterly messed up Remillard boys in decade after decade and I'm off to save it in kindle so I can read it a dozen more times today.

Wishing everyone who celebrates a Merry Christmas and hoping everyone else either weeps a lot at Les Miz (I'm going on the 27th with my sister) or has a fun-filled day.

I love my giftfic!

It's The Eight fic, Mireille/Valentine and Mireille/Talleyrand (and imho, unconsummated Valentine/Talleyrand as well) and it's lyric, emotional, in-character and sublime.

Anon wrote in the notes that she and I matched on something else but my request introduced her to The Eight and she decided to write it and I am so thrilled because yay story, and also Achievement Unlocked for 2011 for introducing someone to The Eight.

If anyone but my betas can, btw, guess the fic I wrote for Yuletide, I'll make them a fanvid to any 2010 or 2011 song of their choice, in any fandom I have the content for.

Ah, lovely Yuletide year! Hope you all had magical Yuletide experiences too!

Now, what should I read next? REC ME THINGS, please! We aren't having company until about 4...

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 is the difference between Katherine Neville's The Eight series and RPF 18th & 19th century politics?

Anyhow, I ended up submitting these:
Tomorrow People (1973)
Katherine Neville's The Eight
Indiana Jones movies
Hiding Out (movie)
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (movie)
RPF 18th & 19th century politics (and I am shocked, SHOCKED that Germaine de Staël and the Empress Josephine were not already included in the "character" list)

It's looking likely that I'll be going to Epcot for some Food & Wine Festival funtimes in the afternoon/early evening on October 21 - anyone want to join me for a nosh-around?
