Yuletide 2012 Letter

Dear Author,

Apparently we share fandoms! That is awesome. ♥ Hopefully I can give you a better idea about the kind of stuff I'd like, though as you've probably already seen from the little request blurbs, I'm not very picky overall. Still, if it'll help you out, I'll try to point out some specifics and narrow some stuff down!

1) Red Vs. Blue - any
> "Go wild. I like the Blood Gulch crew, and I like the Freelancers. Not picky! However, I'm really not one for pairings in this canon, so just gen fic would be great."

... Dude. I mean it. Seriously. All the characters are interesting, and I'd love whatever I can get. I have a slightly greater affiliation for Blue Team than Red Team, but I still love both. My favorite Freelancers are the twins, and it would be cool to see some exploration there that we're blatantly not getting in canon. (... I could rant for a while about that but I won't) I'm also really fond of York, so character exploration there could be cool!

In the long run, I'm really just looking for some gen fic. I don't care if it's lighthearted and comedic, or if it's full of ~Freelancer feels~ that slap me in the face. So really, whatever direction you take it in and whatever you decide to do, I will be perfectly happy with.

2) Vampire Game - Ishtar, Duzell, Darres, Yuujel/Yuujin
> "I love Ishtar more than I probably should. Could I please get something Ishtar-centric? Comedic, angsty, romance... whatever!"

This series is pretty nostalgic for me. Ishtar was one of the first female leads that really left an impression on me when I was younger, and I still adore her even now. I would love something Ishtar-centric, whether it's getting more into her character or just following her around on one of her little jaunts outside of the palace walls. Bonus points for Duzell or any of the other cast trying to put up with her (or just... shaking their heads).

3) Borderlands - Lilith, Mordecai (the signup sheet character selection hates me)
> "I have two different requests here: I'd love to see the two Siren ladies having a conversation, hanging out, killing shit together... you know, just doing what they do. If that's not up your alley, I wouldn't mind some Lilith/Mordecai or Lilith/Roland. And if none of that strikes your fancy? Then by all means, just anything with either group (or both groups!) of Vault Hunters would be great. You won't find me complaining. Bonus points for guest appearance by Claptrap (but not at all required)."

Pretty much what it says on the tin. ♥ The Siren is my go-to class, and I'm very interested in both Maya and Lilith. I also like to think about the kind of things they'd have to talk about, and the fistbump scene in the game trailer just seriously cemented for me that they'd be an awesome duo. I'd love something dealing with that! (And if you want to femmeslash it? I sure as hell am not stopping you~ But don't feel pressured, it would really just be icing on the already kickass cake.)

Not fond of that idea? Then... I'm also a fan of Lilith/Mordecai, even if that 'ship got sunk by the Lilith/Roland canon 'ship. Granted, both are lovely... If you'd like to explore either of those, I'd love to read it!

Still not your cup of tea? Then go wild! I love both groups of Vault Hunters, and would really like just about anything. You could focus on one group over the other, or smoosh them together! Het, slash, femmeslash, gen fic... whatever floats your boat. Character interaction especially appeals to me, as there's so much room for some excellent conversation/banter/etc with all of these guys! I only picked the two I did because that tag system really does just hate me or something. :| I contemplated just filling in the remaining slots with two random characters, but I didn't want to mess anything up. Anyway, the point is, I love everyone?


And hopefully that was enough tl;dr to help you out, dear author. Thank you in advance for the lovely fic, and I hope you get what you want this year as well! ♥ I greatly appreciate this already, you have no idea!

Best ♥,
Maggie T. (aka DivineMadness | Millenia)
