Yuletide Letter

Dear Yuletide Santa,

I'm so excited! I know my requests were super-short so I thought I'd expand, in case you wanted more detailed prompts.



Um, some of my general likes and dislikes: I love backstory, people secretly pining, dysfunctional relationships with happy endings, funny stories, serious stories, smutty stories, women who are well-adjusted and mostly happy, casual not-world ending romances, strong friendships, outsider POV. I also enjoy slash, femslash, het and gen, so feel free to include any of the above (and feel free to put in pairings I didn't request, even as the main pairing. I'm not really too involved in any one pairing in these fandoms, so adding something like Lacey/Middleman wouldn't bother me at all, as long as you focused on the Wendy-Lacey dynamic.)

Dislikes: Well, I picked shows for which I generally like the whole cast, so any unnecessary demonization of one character or another (when it's out of character) would bother me. Other than that, I'm pretty hard to squick or irritate.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Dr. Horrible runs into a dispirited Captain Hammer.
I'm interested in anything after the credits rolled, though missing scenes would be great too. I don't really see them having a schmoopy, uncomplicated romantic relationship, but other than that I'd love any look at how they'd interact after Penny's death, with Dr. Horrible's regret. Pluses: Dr. Horrible's future adventures with the evil league, hatesex if you're interested in writing it, cameos from any of the side characters. Also, I know it doesn't fit with my prompt, but Penny backstory of any kind would be awesome (feel free to do this instead!)

The Middleman
Any interaction- romantic or friendly- between Wendy and Lacey.
Oh, Wendy and Lacey. I love their friendship so much, and the clear sense of a long and close history. Backstory would be amazing, or missing scenes, or just hanging out together after Wendy comes home from another harrowing adventure, or even casually starting a romance. I love the whole cast of this show, too, so again, Middleman-Tyler-Noser-Ida,etc. cameos would be fantastic but not totally necessary. Feel free to go smutty, too. A Middleman/Lacey/Wendy threesome that isn't full of angst would be awesome but not required, if that's not your thing. This is the only fandom on my list where I'm not sure I'd really love a deeply angsty fic, but if you think you can do it well, that would probably still be great.

Rachel Getting Married
Anything! Backstory, post-movie, anything focusing on the sisters would be wonderful.
I loved the focus on family in this movie, so backstory would be particularly awesome, anything exploring how Kym and Rachel interacted growing up. Incest would be interesting, but obviously not required at all. That said, I would also be very happy to see how the events of the movie changed their relationship. I can't see Kieran and Kym having a perfect, easy relationship, but other than that I'd like to see any of the side characters- Kieran, Sidney, their dad, Emma.

Ten Inch Hero
Priestly ditches the Banana Republic look. No Tish-bashing, please, even if they aren't together.
Enjoyed the movie, wasn't so sure about the ending they gave Priestly. I liked Tish, and I liked Tish and Priestly together, but a (mostly) amicable breakup would be fine. The story doesn't necessarily have to focus on Priestly deciding to go back to his old look- if you start the story off with him already having reverted, I'll totally buy it and enjoy wherever you take him. Backstory would be a plus as well. And again, I liked the whole cast, so cameos from any of the other characters would be welcomed.

Thank you again, mystery writer! I'm going to be so happy to get whatever you write.

YES! IT'S CUTE!DEAN/PRIESTLY AND I ACTUALLY GOT TO THE STAGE WHERE THERE MIGHT BE GAY TOGETHER. NO REALLY. I am so thrilled with myself asknnasklfsa. Essentially it turns out that Tish has Issues and Priestly was like AW CRAP I CHANGED MYSELF FOR NO REASON *goes back* Cute!Dean has moved to Santa Cruz and he recognizes him at a bar from the Beach City Grill, and Priestly tells him the whole sad story, AND THEY BECOME FRIENDS, which is only vaguely awkward because:

"So you put back the guyliner and tried to make it work?" Dean shook his head on a laugh, thumb methodically ripping at the label on his longneck Bud. "That sucks. You were hot."

Priestly did a really good job not reacting to that. He didn't cough or laugh awkwardly or any of the million things he usually did when people -- okay, men hit on him.

"Shit. I think you're supposed to be into the fifth beer before you accidentally admit you like guys. Um. Sorry to ruin our manly bonding moment." Dean shifted around more, like he was itching to get up and forget this ever happened.


AND YES. CUTE!DEAN/PRIESTLY 4EVA.

I DON'T WANT TO EXAGGERATE OR ANYTHING BUT THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT THING I HAVE EVER READ. Guyliner! Beer! BONDING!

Also, I really do feel for Dean, here. Clearly he was just bamboozled by Priestly's intense hotness. I LOVE THEIR MANLY BONDING MOMENT, I LOVE IT SO MUCH AND I CANNOT WAIT FOR MORE OF THIS. THERE WILL BE MORE OF THIS, RIGHT? :D? :D? :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD?

ATM I HAVE ABOUT 9000+ WORDS OF IT SO YEAH. :D HOPEFULLY I CAN WORK ON IT AND MY NANO ORIGINAL CRAP THIS MONTH.

BONUS TEASER BECAUSE YOU ROCK FOR CARING ABOUT MY WEIRD CROSSOVERS:

Priestly dialed, and Dean came back around to wait with him. He eyed the posters on the wall in the hallway, and the insane Elvis clock Priestly had over the phone, before getting bored and staring at Priestly.

He ordered them too much food, but Dean was pretty much a human garbage disposal, and Priestly liked leftovers. He clicked off with a, "he said about forty five minutes," and was putting the phone back on the charger so he almost didn't notice Dean's eyes widen. "What?"

"You've got a ring," Dean gestured, and Priestly looked down. "I didn't know."

"Oh, yeah. It's kinda new, actually." He flicked his nipple with a finger, just because he finally could jack with it after all those months of having to be careful. "Got it the week after Tish dicked me over, since I was getting so much else done. I'm not very creative with my post-breakup fuck yous."

"Hey, whatever floats your boat," Dean grinned. "When shit happened to me, I got an ugly haircut. I don't know what I was supposed to be saying with that. 'Screw you, I'm going to make sure no one finds me attractive?'"

"Nah, I get it. You were being defiant. What did your wife do?"

Dean's eyes narrowed and he dropped his gaze to the floor for a second. "Wasn't my wife. It was, uh. Another girl."

"When did you find time to start drilling boys between all this girl-dating?"

"That all came after my divorce," Dean said, quiet but looking at him again. Clearly a hands-off subject, so Priestly grinned and tapped the counter.

"Wanna play some Guitar Hero before the chow gets here?"

"You're going down," Dean crowed, planting himself on the couch.

I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE HOW HAPPY THIS MAKES ME. Also, I am VERY INTRIGUED as to how Dean and a SHIRTLESS Priestly end up having lolzy hanging-out time!

OH, DID I FORGET TO MENTION PRIESTLY'S NIPPLE RING? :DDDDDDDDDDD

This is so awesome. I CANNOT wait for more.
