Dear Yuletide Author,

Thanks so much for picking one of my fandoms! I can pretty much guarantee that whatever you write me, I'll love (that's why I picked the fandoms I picked, after all) so don't feel pressured! Whatever you do, I'll love. A good, well written story is definitely much better than a poorly written story shoved together just to fill a prompt. So write what inspires you!

That being said, here's a quick list of things that make me love a story.
-I would really rather NOT read het (what can I say, girls have cooties!). I occasionally read gen, but I'd much rather read slash.
-I really really like slash.
-I like angst in my fics.
-I like dark topics (non-con/dub-con, h/c, trauma etc) not so much because the act of torturing someone is awesome (it's really not, although well-written S/M scenes are great) but because I like the psychological effects. I like reading the fall-out more than the act itself, if that makes sense.
-Some of these fandoms don't really lend themselves to dark fic, but don't worry! I like crack fics too!

I've offered a few story ideas specific to each fandom below in case your Muses aren't co-operating, but please don't feel obligated to go any particular direction. I'm happy to just read new stories in these often overlooked fandoms.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

One of the things that gives me a happy feeling in my tummy is when a strong character has a weakness that they have no control over, that they have to learn to work around. Hansel has at least two such weaknesses. His "sugar sickness" and his fear of water. I would love to see a fic where he has to deal with one (or both) of these problems.

I prefer H&G fic to be Gen, but incest doesn't scare me, so if your fic wants to go the Hansel/Gretel route, then by all means let it go that way. Alternatively, I will accept any other pairing you feel like writing (although, I do admit even I have a hard time picturing sexy times with Edward the Troll).

Red Dwarf

Red Dwarf is another fabulous fandom full of characters with surprising weaknesses. We know from the episode "Duct Soup" that Lister is claustrophobic, and hates the dark. The episode "Polymorph" shows that he's also terrified of snakes. This softer side of Lister appeals to me, and I would love a story where Rimmer and Lister are placed in a situation where these fears rear their ugly heads (and while I love smeghead!Rimmer, and don't mind if he's a complete bastard who totally takes advantage of Lister's discomfort, I would love it if Rimmer is surprisingly understanding, and helps Lister cope in some way).

Alternatively, if you're more of a Rimmer fan that a Lister fan, I love when Rimmer's light bee screws up, and he loses control of himself (think channeling the crew in "Queeg", the Holovirus in "Quarantine", running out of power in "Demons & Angels", the system crash in "Trojan", etc) so any fic where Rimmer loses his vaunted control would be greatly appreciated.

I've requested Lister and Rimmer because they are my OTP, but don't feel like you have to pair them if you don't want to, and don't think that just because I didn't ask for the rest of the Boys from the Dwarf I don't want to see them. Ensemble fics make me just as happy as pairing fics.

I try not to put limits on my authors, because I know how hard it is to write a fic for someone else... but I really do prefer my Rimmer as a hologram (either soft or hard-light, I don't care) and I prefer my Kochanski not on the Dwarf, so preferably nothing set during series 7 or 8. 'Back to Earth' and Series X are both perfectly acceptable, the Boys are still awesome even in their 40s and 50s.

Dark Shadows

The relationship between Willie Loomis and Barnabas Collins has always fascinated me. From Barnabas' resurrection until Willie gets committed, they're inextricably linked, despite the fact that they can barely tolerate each other. Barnabas is dependent upon Willie to protect his interests and keep him safe during the day, and Willie is under Barnabas' thrall, unable to leave even if he wants to. I would love to see a fic dealing with that relationship, either as a potential slash relationship, or just as a general Master/Servant-Vampire/Thrall relationship. Part of what intrigues me about Willie Loomis is how he responds to physical punishments, both from Barnabas and from Jason McGuire. He's clearly used to being beaten into submission, so feel free to dole out the abuse however it fits you. If Willie finds himself enjoying it, more's the better!

Coldfire Trilogy

I like the dynamics between Tarrant and Vryce. I like that they have to work together even though neither one of them really wants to, and I like the sort of grudging respect they end up developing towards the end. However, I also like that (in my mind, at least) Tarrant's an evil bastard with a heart of pyrite. Let's keep him like that, okay? I really don't see the Hunter doing cute and fluffy. Also, I can't help but imagine that hate sex would be very satisfying for a being that feeds on negative emotions. I'm just tossing that out there ^_~.

Ant Muzak

If you need a refresher, you can rewatch the video right here on Youtube. There's also a cute Making Of video. I love the idea of a day in the life of Adam and the Ants. Any fic where the boys are out, living their lives, being adorable together is totally welcome.

Manimal

I'll be honest, I don't have any specific ideas for fic for this fandom. I love everything about this cheesy old tv show, and would squee with delight no matter what you wrote.
