Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! You clearly have the best taste in all of Yuletide. My letter, with prompts and general likes/dislikes included, is behind the cut. As usual, much of this is copy/pasted from previous letters, so if you get the feeling you've read this before, you're probably right.

Cut for length and spoilers for Alphas, His Dark Materials, Jake 2.0, Spambots (anthropomorfic) )


Thank you so much for writing for me! I hope you have lots of fun. As usual, feel free to contact the mods if you have any questions; they'll pass them along and preserve your anonymity.

<3,
Neb.

Much of this is recyled from years previous, but I've changed all the stuff that needs changing. :)

Dear Yuletide Writer:

Thank you for writing for me! Or thank AO3's matching algorithm for making you write for me. Or something. Here's my letter (with prompts included for easy reference/what-have-you), full of joy and "omg this bit is THE BEST" and all the usual stuff like that.

The official letters post isn't going to be posted for a few more days, but I'm bored and antsy and the Avs just (finally!) won a game and the package I'm expecting is still in West Virginia and I'm frantically trying to distract myself from real life, so here goes.

P.S. For the sake of entertainment (and advertisement), a ten-word summary of each fandom.

Alphas: X-Men meets Heroes meets Farscape; neurological differences are people's strengths.

His Dark Materials: Paradise Lost in multiple universes, with epic battles and betrayals.

Jake 2.0: Thanks to nanotechnology, IT guy becomes a secret agent man.

The Martian: Eighteenth person on Mars becomes the only person on Mars.

ParaNorman: Nobody believes this kid can see ghosts, but he does.

So yeah, that's pretty much it. Feel free to ask me any questions via the admins (I don't bite and neither do they, seriously they're awesome).

(Because the letter collection post has gone up early this year...)

Dear Yuletide Writer:

You are awesome. I don't even care who you are; it's true. And odds are I'm going to love whatever you write for me, because you're awesome. Now that that's out of the way, to business. ("To business!" *clink*)

So, the last two years I've done themes for my Yuletide requests. I'm breaking from that tradition this year, though technically Niven's fourteenth law could still count as the theme. "The only universal message in science fiction: There exist minds that think as well as you do, but differently," it says, and that's just good advice for life in general.

The general part of my letter, plus two of my prompts, are more or less copied from my letter last year. I've made some rather extensive edits, though, so be forewarned.

So yeah, that's pretty much it. Feel free to ask me any questions via the admins (I don't bite and neither do they), and do continue to be awesome.

Dear Yuletide Writer:

Thank you for writing for me! I (probably) don't know who you are, but I'm glad we share at least one fandom in common.

My theme this year (with one beloved exception) is Larry Niven's fourteenth law: "The only universal message in science fiction: There exist minds that think as well as you do, but differently."

I'm going to copy the non-fandom-specific part of my letter from last year's, with a few edits.

Thank you again for writing for me! I hope you have as much fun writing as I will reading. :)

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you for writing for me! I love it that you're doing it. Hopefully you'll enjoy writing it as much as I'll enjoy reading what you write.

Cut for length and spoilers, sorry if you saw it uncut )

Thank you once again for writing for me! I <3 you already.

<3,

So far there are three bids on my hats. Two of them are from people on my LJ friends list. So, thank you! :D :D D (I promise not to spam the link much more than I already have...)

Also, I am NEVER going six months without letting my sister work on my shoulders again. She fixed them (and if any Denver-area types need a certified massage therapist, I'll give you referral info), but she had to go deep enough that they're all bruised now. (That's a good "ow," though.)

Day 15 → A fan-fic
Well, I'll use this space to squee about my Yuletide bounty.

Seriously. Ten fics. Ten of them. Which means I'm going to find three new fandoms to request next year (HDM is going to be my perennial, I've decided). They're in Eureka, Futurama, His Dark Materials and Quantum Leap, and every one of them is awesome.

(Ten!)

(TEN!)

The remaining days )

For those of you who've done Yuletide before:

I know you need to offer to write at least four different fandoms, and I know they say "don't do too many," but what number do you think is optimal? Five to ten?
