Dear Yulegoat,

Hello, and thank you! Yuletide is a lot of effort and it means a great deal to me that you are spending such energy on me. With that in mind, I truly mean it when I say I hope you enjoy yourself first and foremost. My sincerest request is that you don't force it; use my prompts as jumping-off points, by all means, but I'd rather read a great story written with conviction that I wouldn't have expected than a mediocre story that checks off every box on my list.

As far as that list goes, I've repeated it most every year and you can find it in my previous letters in my tag, but honestly I feel okay skipping over it this time. The stories I like the best are those that are organic, emotionally truthful, and nuanced. The stories that I like the least are facile, gratuitously sentimental or edgy, without consequence or courage. I love plot - partly because I can't write it to save my life - but I also love character studies, absurd comedies, and lyricism (though not extremely opaque prose). Characterization, sense of place, and tone will always win me over. Also girls, gays, and friendship! What can I say? Secretly I'm easy. Just no mindwipes, please.

For your visual learning pleasure: a tumblr tag just for you! (It is not distributed in proportion to my interest in these fandoms.)

And now, my six prompts!

LUTHER )

SEVEN KINGDOMS TRILOGY AKA BITTERBLUE )

TEEN BEACH MOVIE )

FINGERSMITH )

DANCE ACADEMY )

THE X-FILES RPF )

I hope this helps a bit! Again, if you are at any sort of a loss, my "yuletide!!!" tag has more, and really so does the rest of my journal. I am an open book with plenty of opinions, but at the end of the day I still want to see yours. Have fun and don't stress out too much <3

love!!!
Tris B
