Yuletide sign-up are open!
. Checking out which fandoms were available
made me change one of my intended requests and offers, though not of the same fandom. Having the "damn, I should have thought of that" impulse before signing up instead of after comes in handy. :)
You can check which fandoms already got sign-ups here
, which is neat and which I'll probably do a lot during the next few months. If only some of these get written in, it's going to be a great Yuletide again. Mind you, now that I've signed up up I suddenly envision dreadful possibilities that didn't occur to me - my selection of Babylon 5 characters was such that I won't get stuck with either Sheridan/Delenn, Susan/Talia or Susan/Marcus, aka the juggernauts, but what if someone requested a Bester/Vir fluffy happy fic? Nah. They wouldn't. Would they?
Also with Breaking Bad
I listed most of the characters for my willing-to-write category but maybe shouldn't have listed both Jesse and Walter, because I'm not actually keen on writing Jesse/Walter, which is the - there are so few BB fics of any category that we can't call it juggernaut, but you know what I mean. I wouldn't be in this fandom if I didn't find the Walter and Jesse relationship compelling and crucial, but it's already central on the show, so in fanfic I'd rather explore other aspects or ensemble fic. What if I'm matched with someone who wants a Walt/Jesse PWP? Ah well. (To absolutely no one's surprise, I requested something Skyler centric.)
More suddenly occuring dangers: Sunset Boulevard
- nah, can't actually think of anything I wouldn't want to write. (Norma and Betty shop for curtains? Errr. Well, actually, that has potential. Not completely kidding. I mean, why on earth Norma wouldn't let Max do the shopping is beyond me, but hey, she's not famous for her rationality.) The Sunne in Splendour
: someone nominated Sharon Penman's first novel I still have strong nostalgic feelings for, and I couldn't resist signing up. Considering the nominated characters are the York brothers and Anne Neville, I think I'm up for anything. (She says, until she reads the request Yorkcest and/or a high school AU.) Greek and Roman Mythology
: anything goes. Such is the nature of Greek and Roman mythology. :)
Also, Doctor Who
wise, I watched/listened to the unfilmed but scripted and storyboarded epiloge narrated by Arthur Darville. Alas, my fuzzy feelings and ability to sniffle along with the rest of (not Moffat hating) fandom were severely disrupted because I couldn't help but thinking "That's all very well for Brian, but what about the other
Ponds?" You know, Amy's parents? Who must have been swalled up by a crack in time again, because after resurrecting them and giving Amy an entire second childhood with them in The Big Bang
so they could be at her wedding, the Moff never bothered mentioning them or Amy's aunt again. I could be mean and wonder whether he even remembers they exist(ed?), but hey. Crack in time.
