Dear Yuletide Goat,

Thank you for writing me a thing! You are awesome. No, you rock. The holiday season is made glorious because of you. Shush, we both know its true. Now, I know I was pretty specific in my requests. Sorry about that. I babble. It's my way. Hopefully they were informative in a good way. I'm gonna repost them here and then after throw up some likes and dislikes that might help.

Requests )

Some things I like:
-Love stories. The actual falling in love part.
-Banter.
-Bad boys who find someone strong enough to face them head on on.
-ABO is awesome.
-Feel free to mpreg if you have a good idea.
-D/s is welcome either incidental or as a verse if you feel inclined.
-Drama. OMG I loves me some ~drama~.
-AUs because as I said, if you've got a good idea, run with it.
-Hot hot sex.
-Happy endings!!!!!

I really dislike it so PLEASE don't:
End things unhappily.
Misgender people.
Bring in scat or watersports.
Have non-con lead to love.
Write subs, Omegas, or mpregs as "weak".

Um, beyond that I'm easy. I'm just happy you're here!

Thank you,
Rachael/dancinbutterfly

!!!!YULETIDE!!!!

OH MAN YOU GUYS YULETIDE! This is my first Yuletide in two years and I wrote things! I was gifted things! Let me show you them. ♥_♥ First my prezzies ♥_♥  )

Also, I wrote. I wrote for the first time in a very long time and the things I wrote were deeply telling of where my head's at lately. They were all churned out in under three hours(not counting betaing/edits/rewrites) in bursts of creativity I havent experienced since I went back to working full time. They're real shorts and I'm exceedingly proud of all of them. I did something original with them, things that I've never done before even if it was just trying a new fandom so, if its okay I'm going to talk about process and stuff. I havent had a chance to do that in ages and all of the stories are under 3,000 words so they're good places to do it.

1)Title: Zack Don't Surf
For: queenofinsanity6
Fandom: World War Z - Max Brooks
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Choose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Pairing: OFC/OMC
Summary: Pensacola Beach, Florida: An interview with one of the founding members of The Santa Rosa Island Surf Patrol, the first prevention unit to use surfboards as a means to police and prevent zombies emerging from the Gulf of Mexico from reaching the shore.
My Offical Yuletide Fandom Assignment was World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (the book, not the movie - they don't even compare). If you havent read it, it's basically Shoah for a fictional war. Survivors of the war all over the world share their stories with an interviewer who is recording them so that they're not lost to time - the same way Shoah records the first-person stories of Holocaust survivors. So now that you know the source, time to talk fic.

First off - the name. I havent been so damn proud of a title in AGES. Zack is what the people in the book call zombies much like American soldiers in the Vietnam conflict called the Vietcong soldiers Charlie. If you've ever seen Apocalypse Now - arguably the best Vietnam flick ever(arguably - my favorite though)- you know that there is a big emphasis on surfing in the movie revolving around Robert Duvall as a slightly crazy Lt. Col. Kilgore, notable for the line "I love the smell of Napalm in the morning...smells like victory" whose whole platoon were surf-happy. His whole troop are in the middle of an active battle and he decides, hey, time to surf! Six foot swells! The protest is that Charlie owns the point but Kilgore declares "Charlie don't surf!" Same concept here only zombies instead of communist Vietnamese. Yeah. I love it. So much. It just feels right given the content is a surf patrol for zombies that move through water and need to be stopped. I'm genuinely proud of it.

The rest of it was less easy as I spent ages trying to figure out what the actual fuck to do with this. Ages. I couldn't figure it out. Then, literally the day of the deadline it hit me like a storm surge wave - this a fandom built on personal survivor accounts so in order to write something for this fandom I had to go to my own survivor account. If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I had my personal war with living in Florida and Tallahassee played a roll in the books as a relative safe zone so I figured - fuck it. I'll write what I know. Isnt that what everyone always says? I grew up in the location I used and lived their until I went to college and then on all my breaks. You know want to see some shit go to my tags and click hurricane, real life, family, or go to my very first posts where i talk about updating from my then boyfriends desktop because I was homeless due to housing destruction. It's not an exaggeration when I say my peer group were devastated before we were ably to leave that area. 9/11 opened our high school experience, two wars filled our middle years, and devastating hurricanes closing out our adolescence. Now my peers are dropping like flies. Literally every single character in Zack Don't Surf is named after someone from my graduating class who is now dead.

The story started with a male voice and a fabricated name but I stalled and deleted it. I felt that it was in keeping with the truth of WWZ to share my own losses through the narrative so thats what I did. Jenna, my protagonist, is not living my life. Her trauma is not my trauma but the places she went and love are the places I went and love and the keen sense of loss is my own. I left a large chunk of my heart on the page in Zack Don't Surf. If you want to take a look at my heart as it relates to the place that will always feel like home, even when I have a new place that feels like home, you should go read this one. I havent been truly proud of something I wrote in a long time. It was an experiment in epistolary/interview format to fit the book style and I think it worked. I'd love to know what yall think too. Also if you have any questions about the area - the culture, the lay out of the the Pensacola area, the Navy presence and its effect on the city, my personal experiences, or anything else please ask. I welcome them.


2)Title: Dominic and Submission
For: Opalsong
Fandom: The Fast and the Furious (2001), Fast and the Furious Series
Rating: Mature
Warning: Choose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Pairing: Brian O'Conner/Dominic Toretto
Summary: Brian has hidden his submissive orientation most of his life out of necessity more than desire and he's been fine. Really. Until he meets Dominic Toretto then fine doesn't really fit the situation anymore. A BDSM-universe AU of The Fast and the Furious.
This was an Emergency Pinch Hit. It came out at the very last minute and was written in about an hour of glorious inspiration. I haven't written like that in months. It was beautiful and clear and bright. It was also nice to be able to contribute at the 11th hour rather than sliding in at the last minute for once.

This is also Baby's first BDSM-universe. I've been trying to write one of these for ages and for some reason this one just exploded out of me. Unlike the other ones I've read where submissive or dominant dynamic is tied to sexuality, I decided to equate it closer to a cisgender. Because of that, Brian being in hiding is less about him hating who he is and more about making choices he needs to in order to get by. I'm just so tired of D/s and ABOverses where the submissive or omega hates BEING submissive or omega - hates the very nature of who they are and fight it tooth and nail to the point of where if it is in fact equated with gender(which it is most often in ABO) it would equate with gender dysphoria and yet never treated as such. I also learned about Dr. James Barry aka the first female doctor who lived her entire life as a man around the same time as I wrote this which is where part of the idea came from. It made me think about the fact that sometimes there are reasons not to live as who you are but that doesn't mean you have to hate it. You can like who you are and hate the system or prejudices or dangers that make you need to had that while still valuing your own identity. I don't know if Dr. Barry felt that way but the idea of hiding your cisgender to pursue your dream to due so made me think about this stuff. So, this was an experiment in the difference between hiding and hating. With elements of desire and sexiness thrown in. Then I left the ending open which is something I almost never do. That was rough for me, giving myself permission to just walk away with the door ajar but it was *right* and I have to believe learning how to do that means I'm growing as a writer, doesn't it?

This is also one of the first time's I've gotten a request for a sequel from pretty much every single commenter. I think maybe one person didn't ask. That's new. EVERYONE asked I'm thrown quite frankly. I didnt think it'd cause that strong a reaction. But it did. So, I may be doing a rewatch of the movies because there are definitely elements of the dynamic world I want to explore.


3)Title: Killing To Save Lives Is Like Screwing for Virginity
For: ijemanja, raedbard, 100indecisions
Fandom The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
Rating: Mature
Warning: Suicide, Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Pairing: Gen
Summary: He is no Fool and she is no Virgin. Dana knows that doesn't mean the world has to end. Marty doesn't know how the world will go on.
There are major major spoilers in this one so I'm going to put it behind a cut but I hope you click it. They have to choose. )


So, that's my Yuletide. I think it might be more telling than a What I've Done Recently post could be but I am going to do one of those too.
dancinbutterfly: (Yay! - Kermit the frog)
Dearest Yuletide Goat,

I know its late but we've still got nearly a month so this might help if you're stuck. The catagories are ranked by most wanted to least which isnt saying much because I love them all.

General dislikes - death fic, unhappy endings, rape with no reason for it to be there(If it fits the story or you think its part of a characters backstory? Go for it, but not for its own sake you know?), gen, high school AUs

General likes: Smut, angst with a happy ending, banter, stereotypical Top guy bottoming

Losers (2010)
Jake Jensen/Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez

More than anything I want a fic where Cougar is stupidly in love and adoration with Jensen and goes about slowly wooing him, preferably from Cougar's POV. I love NC-17 so feel free to get dirty. Also I have a soft spot for use of "Jake" in private moments - but only if it feels right to you as an author!

Other ideas: Undercover situations of wackiness - sex clubs, retirement home, university, cult - really anywhere that is conducive to hijinks and will make Clay uncomfortable in particular. Feel free to retcon Roque's betrayal. Any use of Jolene or Beth or Beth's mom/Jake's sister is welcome.


Mighty Ducks (Movies)
Charlie Conway Adam Banks Fulton Reed

*cough* Charlie would be NHL aged now. I'm not saying you have to do a crossover where he falls in love with hockey player on the Penguins or the Kings or the Rangers or anything but I wouldn't mind. I wouldn't mind it if he fell in love with Sidney Crosby or John Tavares or Tyler Seguin or Matt Duchene or Jonathan Toews or almost anyone kicking ass in the league who isn't Patrick Kane. You know. It's not something I would mind.

I also wouldn't mind if you did that falling-in-love-in-the-NHL scenario with one of his former Ducks(of your choosing though I prefer Adam or Fulton) having been on an opposing conference team(east coast to his west coast or vice versa) and getting traded and them, you know, finding each other again. Like you do.

And by "I wouldn't mind" I mean I WANT LIKE BURNING. *clears throat*

P.S. MAXIMUM BONUS POINTS FOR CONNIE BEING THE FIRST WOMAN IN THE NHL AND KICKING ASS DOING IT PREFERABLY ON CHARLIE'S TEAM, PREFERABLY WHICH GORDON NOW OWNS.


Divergent Series - Veronica Roth
Natalie Prior/Andrew Prior

Tris's parents - how they fell in love and got together in the Abnegation faction. That is literally all I want. How the fuck did that happen? Clearly Andrew knows about Natalie being Divergent, he's obviously a good guy and he really believes in Abnegation but how do you reconcile romantic and sexual desire for someone when your life is supposed to be all about selflessness?

The Dresden Files - Jim Butcher
John Marcone

Okay so, Harry/John. That's what I want. I reallllly think that if Butcher were less, um, pick a noun because I dont want to pick one for you, John could've been a legitimate romantic foil in the same way Lara Raith is. The difference is that John has a kind of balance and depth that Harry really needs. More than anything, I want something romantic for them that 1)deals with Harry's sexual abuse issues and 2)allows him to be loved. Feel free to leave in the conflict of morals. That stuff is delicious. You can love someone and not like what they do, Harry. It is possible. So go nuts there. AUs and Canon Compliant are both welcome.

Bourne Legacy (2012)
Marta Shearing/Aaron Cross

I'll be honest, I got frantic and sort of threw these two in there. I really love them a lot and would like to see their lives together. I'd particularly like to see Aaron working with Marta to constantly challenge himself mentally while they're traveling/running/when they've settled since his intellect is so important to him. Baby!fic and porn also welcome if you feel moved.

American Horror Story
Tate Langdon

If you got me for this one, I just want him to be forgiven. Maybe its because of my person belief about the nature of death and eternity but I don't actually believe that any sin, even murders as grieves as the ones Tate committed, deserve ETERNAL punishment. Extensive, centuries, tremendous punishment yes but not eternal. There's a difference. Particularly since all the things he did after he died were done with a strangely loving intention as horrific as they were.

So, what would it take for him to be forgiven? Better yet, the romantic in me would like to know what would it take for Violet to forgive him and accept him back? I honestly think that the Hell House corrupted the person who he was which doesnt excuse anything but it's something to consider.
dancinbutterfly: (Gone With The Wind)
So, in taking a page out of [personal profile] cathalin's book

I couldn't go without doing Yuletide so I ended up posting a Treat! (The people who offered to help or couldnt help but were sweet about saying no nicely I love your faces).

In the GRAND Yuletide tradition, if you can guess which my fic is, I will (try to) write you a ficlet in any fandom I've written in in the past, say, year(including the fandom I wrote the treat for :D).

CLUES:
1. it is UNDER 2000 words (Stop laughing. I can still write stories that short. No seriously I can. Why are you laughing?)
2. it is in a fandom i have never written in before
3. it is explicit for sexual content
4. it is a heterosexual ship

Additional bonus clue:
5. it is a historical piece set sometime in the 20th century but is not Downton Abbey.

Please at least guess? I wanna know what you THINK even if its not on the money. I just really love this game.

RECS LATER! I ALREADY HAVE ONE! BECAUSE YULETIDE! WHEE!

Details:

First time fic. I choose to read the end of the movie as Benny and Smalls being together as a couple adults. How did they get there? *chinhands* Tell me about them surviving the 60s, 70s, 80s and/or early 90s as a gay couple. Tell me about them coming out or staying in and how they got through college and how Benny dealt with sports related homophobia. TELL ME ANY AND EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF! (NC-17 is loved - especially awkward first time fumbling trying to figure out how everything works and/or sweaty post-baseball lovin')

Sandlot spans about 30 years all told. 1962 is when the action of the movie takes place and the baseball game at the end is in 1994. That covers the Summer of Love, Vietnam, Stonewall, the 80s in general and the AIDS outbreak in particular. I want Scotty/Smalls fic, more than anything. Get together, and staying together because you CANNOT convince me that last scene wasn't them confirming just that. But there is so much TIME to cover. I'd love to see their lives in ANY of those or even better, as many as possible. I would've voted for this twice if I could.

Post movie Sean/Nick please. I'd love to see how they fix Nick or how he turns, so long as they end up together.


Sean spent who knows how long driving back and forth cross country looking for Nick. That's love. I'll take almost anything with these boys. Their life after Nick's Forsaken gets killed, the hunt for it, failing to find the Forsaken and Nick turning and trying to cope. Any of it and all of it.



Request 3

* Kick-Ass (2010),
* Mindy "Hit Girl" Macready,

* Explicit

Details:

Todd: Yeah! I think I'm in love with her, dude.
Marty: She looks like she's about 11 years old but...
Todd: I can wait! I solemnly vow to save myself for her.

Um, I want a fic where Todd actually does wait for her. She would no doubt think he is an idiot but would eventually warm up to him. So, of-age!Mindy/Todd please? Slow/sarcastic falling for each other begged for.


Okay, so, I loved this movie, a lot but I thought that Hit Girl was a terrifying little psychopath. That said, I'm a slut for a redemptive love? I like seeing a tough girl charmed by a not so tough boy. Fast forward them by a few years, and I would love to see Mindy and Todd evolve to that point - even if its just a friendship. He's a sweet boy and she needs sweet in her life. :D

Request 4

* Peter McVries,
* Ray Garraty,

Assuming that Ray Garraty didn't go crazy or die - what happened to him after the Long Walk? What was his life like? What did winning actually get him versus the cost?


Yeah, I want aftermath fic. Dying for it. What the fuck happened to Ray? What do you get in terms of the prize? Did he survive? Did he take care of Scramm's wife and baby? Tell me anything and everything *chinhands*

But mostly, have fun. I know whatever you make will be fabulous and I hope you get everything you want!

DRIVEBY RECS!

1. August and Everything After by (Anonymous for now but when I find out who wrote it? OMG THEY WILL GET SUCH A HUG FROM ME!)
Fandom: Static Shock
Pairing: Virgil Hawkins/Richie Foley
Summary: This is the story of how Richie Foley fell in love with his best friend and never ever told him.

Rec: This was my Yuletide gift! Totally unexpected levels off awesome are contained with in this fic. If you're like me and you loved Static Shock, oh, ever, and you were wondering why Virgil and Richie never hooked up, this is so the fic for you. It's charming and funny and has a really strong grip on the character voices and canon. Read it. Go now. It's wonderful.

2. Beyond the Void by (Anonymous for now)
Fandom: Hellboy 2
Pairing: Agt. John Myers/Prince Nuada
Summary: Some days Myers stares into the Void, and some days the Void stares back into him. And, then, some days the Void spits out naked elves that hold Myers hostage, mess with his head, and make him seriously question his sexuality.

Rec: I...what? I dont know, you guys, this one blindsided me hard and then took me for a freaking ride. But oh, what a ride. Taken from a throwaway line in HB2 about how Myers got transfered to Antarctica and mixed with a SG-1/SGA-ish vibe that makes me nostalgic and impressed all at once, this fic made me REALLY BELIEVE a pairing I would never ever EVER have imagined in a million years. It's so well written and sharp and funny and bloody and horrific that when it finally ended I was left wanting more. So much more. Nuada was as big an ass as he was in the movie but she dug deeper and made him relatable. And Myers was Myers which is the best compliment I can pay. Give this a try. It's engrossing. I promise that even if you don't ship them, you wont be able to look away.


3. Way to a Man's Heart by (Anonymous for now)
Fandom: A Knight's Tale
Pairing: Wat/Chaucer
Summary: Wat evaluates his priorities and begins to realize there is more to life than just a full stomach.

Rec: Organized by food, this is just...lovely. It's lovely and it gets Paul Bettany's Chaucer voice down so well it's a little scary. The seduction of the clueless Wat is funny and sweet and poignant and charmed me thoroughly. I melted when I read this and I think you will too.

Tis that time of year again. YULETIDE! Even though I have way too much to do - scholastically and fandom-lly(totally a word) I cannot resist the pull of the Yuletide Goat!

Dear Yuletide writer -there is a really long letter to you under this cut )

dancinbutterfly: (Random - Kronk)
It's storming very hard outside. Even though I'm on the 1st floor of a 5 story building I can hear the sound of the rain. I just hope we dont lose power but I'm charging my computer just in case. :D It's cozy and it makes me super glad I have no class tomorrow. I think I did fairly well on my Shakespeare midterm today. 100% due to the tireless effort of [livejournal.com profile] ariadne83 to whom I cannot lay enough praise. She totally saved me.

Tonight was a hall government meeting. That was...fascinating. And fun. And like, rewarding despite the bureaucracy. I get to vote on policies in the residence hall and my suggestions get heard and its just really really lovely. There's an out and proud College Republican in the group who I actually get along with and am starting to consider a friend. DIVERSITY! Still, it is still a bureaucratic body and that makes shit harder than it has to be and it wore me out. But I made it!

With that accomplished, I feel like I can talk about funner stuff - like the softer side of real life and fannish pursuits!

1)GLEE! OMG Yall, how great is that show? How much do I love it in every way? How HAPPY AM I THAT THERE IS A HIGH SCHOOL ON TV WITH MORE THAN ONE JEWISH STUDENT?!?! Yes, I'm shallow but a Jewish Rachel on my TV makes me happy. Represent girl *chest thump*

2)I'm flirting with a relatively cute, seemingly nice guy. He's nothing too super thus far but I feel compelled to give him a chance because his name is Mikey. Yes, really. God I'm pathetic. He seems really nice though!

3)Just one thought on a name in tonight's SPN 5.06 )

4)Somehow freaking House M.D. has become my happy place. How did that happen? I recall disliking it, rather a lot, for a long time. But now - its my go to show for happy. I think its because I'm so not-invested in the characters that whatever happens to them amuses me. I dont give a crap about ANYONE so every foible and dig is pure entertainment with no deep angst. It's lovely.

5)Twitter's crack. How dare you guys let me get dragged into this. *clings to the tweets*

6)Fringe now has Uncle Eddie from Grounded For Life and he's awesome. I just love that whole show, so much. Shit's about to get real though. :D I can't wait.

7) I've been binging on slam poetry clips on youtube. There will be a slam poetry post coming. It will be riddled with Taylor Mali *loves him so hard.

8)YULETIDE IS NIGH! OMG! *flails* I think I'm gonna offer to write Fanboys, Zombieland, Askewniverse and MAAAAAAYBE Warehouse 13! I CANT WAIT UNTIL SIGN UPS OPEN! ITS LIKE CHRISTMAS ONLY NONCHRISTIANS CAN PLAY TOO! AND THERE'S FIC!

9)The Venture Bros return with their 4th season THIS SATURDAY NIGHT/EARLY SUNDAY MORNING!! CALLOO CALLAY O FRABJOUS DAY!

10)I've written a LOT this week. Disappear(my MCR time travel verse)is now over 35,000 words long. The MCR superhero story cracked 21,000 words today. How insane is that shit? I feel deeply empowered by the whole mess and completely drained all at once. Someone direct me to some fun Pete/Patrick fic so I can recharge my brain on something I *havent* read yet? I'm starting to short out.

And thats where I'm gonna stop. 10's a minyan and the # of commandants and is just a good round number to halt on. So, thats what's up with me. WHAT IS UP WITH YOU!?!?!

It's storming very hard outside. Even though I'm on the 1st floor of a 5 story building I can hear the sound of the rain. I just hope we dont lose power but I'm charging my computer just in case. :D It's cozy and it makes me super glad I have no class tomorrow. I think I did fairly well on my Shakespeare midterm today. 100% due to the tireless effort of [livejournal.com profile] ariadne83 to whom I cannot lay enough praise. She totally saved me.

Tonight was a hall government meeting. That was...fascinating. And fun. And like, rewarding despite the bureaucracy. I get to vote on policies in the residence hall and my suggestions get heard and its just really really lovely. There's an out and proud College Republican in the group who I actually get along with and am starting to consider a friend. DIVERSITY! Still, it is still a bureaucratic body and that makes shit harder than it has to be and it wore me out. But I made it!

With that accomplished, I feel like I can talk about funner stuff - like the softer side of real life and fannish pursuits!

1)GLEE! OMG Yall, how great is that show? How much do I love it in every way? How HAPPY AM I THAT THERE IS A HIGH SCHOOL ON TV WITH MORE THAN ONE JEWISH STUDENT?!?! Yes, I'm shallow but a Jewish Rachel on my TV makes me happy. Represent girl *chest thump*

2)I'm flirting with a relatively cute, seemingly nice guy. He's nothing too super thus far but I feel compelled to give him a chance because his name is Mikey. Yes, really. God I'm pathetic. He seems really nice though!

3)Just one thought on a name in tonight's SPN 5.06 )

4)Somehow freaking House M.D. has become my happy place. How did that happen? I recall disliking it, rather a lot, for a long time. But now - its my go to show for happy. I think its because I'm so not-invested in the characters that whatever happens to them amuses me. I dont give a crap about ANYONE so every foible and dig is pure entertainment with no deep angst. It's lovely.

Reveal is a go and I wrote 2 fics for Yuletide.

The one that is tiny and got all the reviews is called Cell Mates. It's in the Veiw Askewniverse(Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob movies), Jay/Silent Bob and written for Chaosmano. Set directly after the jail scene in Clerks 2, it uses Randall's asshabadashery to get Jay and Silent Bob together. Yes that way. I had an insanely good time writing this because Randall Graves is a a jerk off and that is an exquisitely fun thing to write. I'm a little surprised at how much people liked it to be honest. I did love getting to bring Dogma into the equation though. Definitely my favorite bit. :D

The links are here: On my journal with revisions and corrections and the original on the Yuletide website.

~*~

The other story I wrote is called What Happens in Vegas. It's Entourage fandom, Eric/Vince and was written for my friend [livejournal.com profile] gatorgrrrl. I was not happy with the quick fix Ellin threw at us in Return to Queens Boulevard. I'm sorry but the fight in New York was too big and it wasnt dealt with well at all. The break up should've been addressed more thoroughly and I want someone, anyone to get E mad. He's been treated like crap for too long and he just takes it. This fic was my exploration into how broken they should've been after episode 12 of season 5.This is the one I killed myself on that didnt get that much play. I'm not sure why.
