Yuletide 2016

O most glorious Yulegoat,

I'd really like to thank you so much for agreeing to write something for a total stranger. In all honesty, I am mostly harmless and am entirely confident that I will be genuinely enthused about whatever lovely thing you send my way.

On the whole, I adore all things plotty. I am particularly fond of case fics, heists, political intrigue, and people being far too clever for their own good. I am mad for world-building, especially for Rivers of London and have no qualms or quibbles about original characters or writing about characters that you haven't been formally 'assigned'.

I've no problems saucy vs non-saucy writing and am good with any rating from gen to explicit. I do enjoy an interesting AU, but I'm not overly fond of them. (Still, if you need to do the AU of your dreams to make this fic work, I trust you.) Horror, humour, and general oddness are just fine by me - after all, I am requesting fandoms with Lovecraftian monsters, necromancers, and all manner of Bad Ideas.

I am not particularly a fan of curtain/domestic fic, babies and pregnancy being the main focus or plotline, or main character death. (Caveat: if it's a really good end, I will leave it up to your discretion.) Finally, I request that you avoid any Alzheimer/mental degeneration themes. (Again, I mention this because Rivers of London and The Laundry Files.)

If all these requests don't work for you, that's fine too. Write something that makes you happy. If you go off and write something wildly unexpected, but that genuinely fills you with authorly glee, it'll make me happy to. What I want most of all is for you to have fun!
