Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hello there! I know a lot of people say they're easy to please in their Yuletide letters, so it's a bit of a cliche for me to say it here, so instead I'll say: I'M A MONSTER.

Fine, I'm not really a monster. I am just happy to have new fic in any of these fandoms, so I will thank you in advance for choosing to write for one of them. Most of all, have fun while writing and I look forward to seeing the results!

So, on to fandoms & more -- in alphabetical order --

B E H I N D . T H E . M A S K:

THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON


Characters Requested: Leslie Vernon, Taylor Gentry, Doug, Doc Halloran

Summary: The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them. (If you like stuff like Scream or Cabin in the Woods, then this is your kind of movie, IMO.)

Availability: I haven't been able to find a place to stream this for free (I'm sure it's available for purchase somewhere), so if by chance someone actually matched on this, it's a miracle! If you did match this movie, it means you are one of the few people who saw this little gem and clearly you are awesome. So congrats on being awesome. If you're just passing by, here's a link to the trailer in case you are curious.

Thoughts/Prompts/Etc.: I just thoroughly enjoyed this movie from beginning to end because I am a HUGE horror geek. It plays with all the tropes and conventions of the slasher genre SO cleverly that I spent the entire first time watching it grinning like a goofball. I just adore this little movie.

I would love love love love to see what happens after the movie, especially since it seems the filmmakers have been unable to get funding to produce the sequel. Does Leslie go after Taylor again? (Of course he would, right?) Would Taylor ever be able to look past what he does and care for him in a romantic way? (Jamie was Eugene's Survivor Girl that he ended up in a relationship with, so maybe Taylor could be that to Leslie.) Is Doc Halloran capable of defeating Leslie once and for all or will Leslie destroy his Ahab? And what about Doug? Maybe Doug and Taylor hook up just so she's no longer the "virgin" that a Survivor Girl is supposed to be? There are so many possibilities!

Obviously, I ship Taylor/Leslie, and would also be okay with Taylor/Doug and would be more than okay with no shipping at all if that's what you want to write. I just want more of these characters, in whatever way you want to give it to me.

Characters Requested: Elise Rainier

Summary: A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.

Availability: It's a fairly popular series, so should be easy to find on iTunes/Amazon (or even check your cable TV listings) and on Blu-ray/DVD. The second film is on Netflix streaming.

Thoughts/Prompts/Etc.: I really enjoyed both of these movies. They aren't perfect but they are entertaining and did some interesting things in the genre. The most interesting (and least explored) character was Elise. In the first film, you know she's been doing this job as a paranormal investigator for many years but you don't know much about how she got into it or her past because she's not the lead character. So I would love anything that explored her life prior to the first film. Make up another case and how she helped someone else! Or talk about how she got into this life and her feelings on it! How did she meet Carl? How did she meet Tucker and Specs? Any one of these would be interesting to me. Or anything else you might come up with. Just more Elise is great!

Feel free to include any other characters from either film as needed.

N A T I O N A L . T R E A S U R E


Characters Requested: Riley Poole, Abigail Chase, Benjamin Gates

Summary: (for the first film) Benjamin Franklin Gates descends from a family of treasure-seekers who've all hunted for the same thing: a war chest hidden by the Founding Fathers after the Revolutionary War. Ben's close to discovering its whereabouts, as is his competition, but the FBI is also hip to the hunt. (for the sequel) Benjamin Gates must follow a clue left in John Wilkes Booth's diary to prove his ancestor's innocence in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Availability: If you are one of the few who have not seen these delightful movies, whyyyyyyyy? Both are on DVD/Blu-ray, Amazon, iTunes and on a cable channel near you a few times a month.

Thoughts/Prompts/Etc.: It's almost stupid how much I love these movies. I love any kind of movie/book/game/etc. that follows this whole "here's a clue, let's follow it to somewhere interesting and find another clue!" plot, and the National Treasure series is one of the best at it. They are just so monumentally fun and I never get sick of watching them. Not ever.

It's really the adventure aspect of it that I love the most, so ANY fic that puts these three on a grand adventure will make me starry-eyed. I am constantly yelling about the lack of a third movie in this series, because I just need more of it. (WHAT IS PAGE 47 FFS?!?) So if you want to come up with an idea for what Page 47 is or have Ben, Riley and Abigail following some other treasure hunt, then run with it. (Though I also understand that a full-fledged adventure may not be possible with time constraints and a lower word count, so even if you write about the three of them of going on an adventure to find the best pizza in Washington, DC or arguing over what movie to watch, I'll still enjoy the hell out of it.)

Preferences wise, Riley and Abigail are my FAVORITES so if they get to shine, then I will be thrilled. Shipping wise, I am fine with references to canon Ben/Abigail but I don't really care about them enough to ask for a fic centered on their relationship. I prefer the delightfully non-canon Riley/Abigail ship. I also love Ben/Abigail/Riley as an OT3 and there just isn't enough fic of the three of them together. You know, together. Gen fic is also 100% cool.

Characters Requested: Wendy Beauchamp

Summary: A family of fierce, powerful witches fight evil and fall in and out of love all while having the BEST hair and clothes possible. (Okay, there's more to it than that, I suppose, but that's why I'm watching.)

Availability: The first season is available on Netflix streaming. I can't find the complete S2 anywhere (it just ended recently), but I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

Thoughts/Prompts/Etc.: Wendy Beauchamp is EVERYTHING. As I've said before, Wendy is everything I'm not and everything I want to be. She's got perfect hair, her body is RIDICULOUS, and she basically gives no fucks. But there's more to Wendy than just being the most fabulous person on this show. She might get cast as the flighty sister but she's really not. She's actually one of the more sensible characters on the show and she is CONSTANTLY saving everyone else's asses. Plus, she banged Freddie Prinze Jr. who was looking better than ever on his two episodes. (Come back to us, FPJ, this show needs your abs and glasses.)

I would love literally anything about Wendy. She's been alive for hundreds of years, so there are so many places you can take her throughout history. Go way back if you want. Or show us what she was up to in the years that she and Joanna were estranged. How did she lose some of those extra lives? Who did she fall in love with? Who did she lust after? GIVE ME ALL THE WENDY ADVENTURES. Wendy at Woodstock! Wendy in the roarin' 20s being a bootlegger during prohibition! Wendy in England in WWII! Wendy around the world! WENDY WENDY WENDY. I LOVE WENDY. Go bonkers because that's what the show is all about!

Feel free to touch on or include any of her canon relationships. Or go WILD, have Wendy making out with historical figures (male or female, IDC, as long as it's not Hitler or Stalin or something). I'm okay with the inclusion of most of the show's characters if you need to throw them in as I generally like or tolerate everyone EXCEPT FREDERICK.

L I K E S / D I S L I K E S


Likes: AUs, tropes, crossovers, snark, banter, adventure, superheroes, space, zombies, darkfic is fine, so is lighter stuff, anything rated G through NC-17 so go wild there if you want, uhh... lotsa things. I am the worst at this.

Dislikes: Non-con or dub-con, mpreg, tentacles (that's right Witches of East End fans, no Tentacle Sex Monster), watersports, scat, a/b/o, not really super kinky but I'm also not a prude, so, yeah, I really am the worst at this part.

If you have any questions about specifics, want to know if you're headed in the right direction or need to know about a thing that I haven't mentioned here, please feel free to send a PM to [personal profile] galfridian and she'll be able to answer any questions for you. :) Or send an e-mail through the mods. I promise I will be quick to respond. (Unless it's between October 31 and November 5, when I willl be out of town with limited internet access.) Also, feel free to stalk me over at my fandom Tumblr or my Twitter. (I also blog about movies and other things at this Tumblr.)

Thanks again and happy Yuletide!
