Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] meagan868, for the virtual gift! It's kind of sad how much I love those things. ♥

I got a bunch of cards and stuff that I will absolutely thank each and every one of you individually for, but I'm just about to leave (the fog is so bad here, guys, seriously, I feel like I'm in that Silent Hill movie or something, it's creepy), so I will wait and do that tomorrow.

I really, really have to rec the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic I got. It is unbelievable. It's Being Human, Herrick/Mitchell and Mitchell/George, and it hit just about everything I could have asked for in a Being Human fic. Hope.

Dear Yuletide Writer:

rambling about my requests! )

Again, thank you, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author, and if there's anything at all you want to ask or need clarification on, feel free to pass a message along via the mods and I'll ramble at you some more!

Merry Christmas!


To those that celebrate, anyway, and to those of you that don't, I hope your holidays are wonderful, too!

We did all our presents and stuff last night, and I was pleasantly surprised that there were no major family scuffles. Way to go, family! And then I stayed up all night and slept through the big meal today. :D

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide opened last night! Oh god, you guys, over 2000 stories in obscure fandoms. I am nearly orgasmic with the idea of so many new fics to read. Unfortunately I only had time to read mine, My Shangri-La, which is Lost Boys, implied past David/Michael, and it is gorgeous. It's about Michael and what happens afterwards, and it's just so prettily written and fits so well, I adore it.

I've been slowly working on people's wishlists, and I have a lot less done than I'd hoped I would, but here's a couple I've gotten done.

All of the wallpapers will work with a widescreen resolution, too, as long as you center it and make the surrounding edges black.

I may be spammy today, but hopefully you are all off stuffing yourselves or playing with your new goodies so you won't notice! :D

Argh, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. I finished my story and uploaded it about fifteen minutes before deadline. :-/ I actually considered writing two stories for my recipient anyway, and then [livejournal.com profile] schneestern got out her porn-fu while I was like, four hours away from deadline and I suddenly thought I should start another story for my recipient. THANKS JULES. Anyway, the porn story is not the story I uploaded, but I may very well finish it just in case my other one sucks. I can distract from the crappiness with PORN. Works every time.

So now I have like seven bajillion other stories I want to finish before Christmas, and pinch hits are going out tonight. Cue me, huddling in a blanket with seven half-drunk cups of coffee sitting around me and my fingers bleeding.

Um. Hmm. I watched 30 Days Of Night twice the other day, once by myself and once with my siblings, and I am definitely crushing a little on Melissa George. )

Josh Hartnett was not too shabby himself. Ben Foster was, unfortunately, quite shabby and I would really like to see him in a role soon where he doesn't look like a total skeev/creep/psycho. And it was a pretty creepy movie, despite some fairly large plotholes/flaws.

I'm fairly sure I'm just going to go through a phase for every single person on Alias. I may have had a five-second fling with Michael Vartan the day before yesterday.

see the results )

That last one reminds me so much of this one of Jensen: )

Or a mix of that one and this one: )

There is a very good chance, however, that that's only because there is only so many ways to dress/pose pretty boys. HINT HINT MORE NAKED WOULD WORK.

Michael Vartan is one of those people that looks way better on camera than he does in pictures, I have to admit. He always looks really wooden/uncomfortable/awkward in pictures. :-/ Hence the not having very many I like.

Ok, yeah, I'll own up. I think Bradley Cooper is pretty freaking hot, too.

see the evidence )

And I realize that I'm made of fail and missed both [livejournal.com profile] angel_kathryn's and [livejournal.com profile] psychotic_scam's birthdays. :( I hope you both had wonderful ones, and if there's anything I can do belatedly to make them better, let me know!

Also! I got cards from [livejournal.com profile] vagrancy (eee! glittery penguins SO CUTE), [livejournal.com profile] crazydelicious0 (French! and your handwriting is so PRETTY I am jealous!), [livejournal.com profile] _onebreath (OMFG MICE IN MITTENS AND CAPS *DIES FROM THE CUTE*), [livejournal.com profile] semirhage527 (GLITTER GLITTER GLITTER IT MAKES MY LIFE), and [livejournal.com profile] pink_faerie81 (MORE GLITTER AND PINK AND REINDEER AND ROAD TRIP HOMG!) Seriously, so much glitter on my desk right now and I really couldn't be happier. :D Thank you, lovelies!

Oh, but as cool as your cards were, they don't match up to the TWO nearly identical cards I got from the John Edwards campaign. Sorry. (I KEED I KEED! Obvs.)

Dear Most Secret of Santas -

Let me preface this by saying that no matter what you decide to write me, I am positive I will love it. Whether you write something exactly like what I mentioned in my details, or something kinda close to it, or something not even remotely similar, I will love it. So don't worry about going out on a limb if something strikes. I will love it.

With that said, here are a few likes/dislikes for your perusal. These are in no way anything you have to take into consideration, they're just here to help.

a general overview of my fic likes/dislikes )

As for whether you can/should include sex scene(s): I love smut as much as the next girl, but I don't require it. If the characters are feeling particularly smutty and you want to throw in a graphic sex scene with various kinks? Go for it! Or if they're feeling porny but not graphic and you want to toss in some vague, nondescriptive sex? Go ahead! Or if you're not down with writing sex scenes, I am ALL for that, too. I'm not going to be brokenhearted either way, ya know?

In conclusion, that was way shorter than I thought it would be. I hope it helps at least a little, and thank you, Santa! ♥

Yuletide

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignments are going out tonight! I cannot believe how excited I am for this. I am seriously bouncing in my chair, thinking about rubbing my hands together, and repressing a squeal. Is it a little sad that I'm more excited about this Christmas gift exchange than I am for my family gift exchange? I don't like my family much, so I guess it's not too sad.

As for that special someone who gets my wishlist, here is my open letter about my likes and dislikes, in case I didn't cover them in my requests.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide Secret Santa,

In general, I love the angst and the darkness. The angstier and darker, the better. Violence, kink, unhappiness, death!fic, non-con, abuse, BDSM (in a sexual or non-sexual setting), sad endings? Totally ok by me. In fact, awesome by me. The only things I really wouldn't be ok with are scat, golden showers, Roman showers, and bestiality.

But if you don't like to go that dark, angst in general is great. Most of my requests have incest options, so any UST or angsting over general 'wrongness' is fantastic.

As for relationships, I think I specified pretty clearly in the requests which relationships I'd like to see, but again, if relationships in general or the relationships I want aren't your thing, gen is cool too. I'm not down with het for the most part, so if it comes down to choosing between writing a gen story or a het story, I'd prefer gen. I don't think I specified any female characters in my requests, though, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm not a big fan of schmoop, fluff, romance, happy endings, etc. If that's what you do best and you can't see your way clear to writing anything else, though, I will love it and cherish it. At this point, any kind of story in any of the fandoms I requested is going to be the best present ever. :)

Thank you kindly, Secret Santa. :)

ETA: Forgot to mention, porn/smut/whatever you call it is totally ok by me, too, but definitely not required.

ETA 2: Reading over other people's SS letters, it made me realize I might want to specify a couple of other things. I am usually reeeeally open-minded about whatever kinks or twists people throw into a story, and I have even RPed my fair share of mpregs. But unless you're really good at making mpreg believable, I'd prefer not to have it in any of the fandoms I specified. Also, good grammar and spelling will make me love a fic ten times as much as I normally would. :)

ETA 3: I could ramble ad nauseum about my particular fandom likes and dislikes, but I don't want to cramp your style. Like I said, basically anything from any of the fandoms I requested is going to keep me squeeing through next Yuletide. :D But if you really want more specifics, feel free to mail the Yuletide mods and I will get up some in depth ramblings for you to peruse ASAP.
