Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you for writing a story for me! Whichever fandom you’’ve been assigned, please know that I’m delighted to get fic for it. These are all canons I discovered this year and I’m very excited about all of them. Sometimes at inordinate, I-keep-cutting-stuff-out-why-does-it-grow-back length.

For each fandom I have included some rambling about canon (these things tend to get away from me), several examples of stuff I’d be interested in, a list of stuff I ship in that fandom if you're someone who likes to have mentions of pairings , and a “things that might be relevant” paragraph, which covers a lot of ground but tends toward excitement for every single character in the canon and headcanons.
If my ships aren't your ships, please don't contradict them? I love gen about character relationships (I just… read it as pre-ship) and it would not be a let-down.

If you like to do research on your recipient, my AO3 name is Runespoor.

As I’ve grown tired of waiting for the gifts I received to be recced, I’m going to rec them myself. I don’t do this because they’re my gifts, I do it because they’re both wonderful stories, each in a different way.

Nothing Gold (1436 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett
Rating: Not Rated
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sara Crewe, Becky (A Little Princess)

Leaving Miss Minchin's isn't difficult, but the story of Sara's life isn't as always as easy to suppose as she once believed.

What I like: Thoughtful and melancholy, it’s a match with the tone of the original. It’s a coda to the book that shows mostly Becky’s PoV, but gives excellent insight into Sara’s. It’s not an angst-fest either; it’s wonderfully nuanced. There are some striking turns of phrases that I’ll let you discover for yourself.

The language is beautiful, Sara and Becky delightfully in character, and it made me smile and my heart ache at the same time

A Little Goddess (6366 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: OFC

Like when Isis went to live in the marsh and begged for food for her baby, Serqa went to live on the roof of the Gorgos Sisters Hellenic Gymnasium for girls. Like Isis, she had a curse to lift and steps to take through the world that was full of magic if you’d stop to tell the tale.

What I like: one of the things I’d mentioned in my Yuletide letter was that I was interested in seeing a transposition of Sara and her stories in another culture/time/surroundings, and mentioned that since she wouldn’t know Marie Antoinette she might admire Scheherazade or Isis.

This is that story, and more than that. It’s an extraordinary tale of magical realism that weaves seamlessly the original plot, the myths, and the cultural/racial politics of Ancient Egypt. Magic with words.
For those playing the guessing game at home, I have written two stories. One of which is in a fandom I may have tangentially mentioned, and the other isn't. For reasons, I will be amused if someone picks up on similarities.

I DID IT. \o/

Mostly for the grammar/spelling aspect. I'm not done writing it yet, but it should be around... 3'000 or 4'000 words, I think. I'd like to have it up by the 22nd, if at all possible.

Hi ! Welcome! Thank you so much for writing me a story!

Er, I’m going to try and tell you stuff about my requests, in case it helps. The result is that it’s an epic case of tl;dr, because I love these fandoms and I do excited babbling. I mostly give story hooks.

I am full of ideas you’re as free to heed, if they are inspiring to you, as to throw them away if they get in the way. I support whatever you choose to write! :D
