Masterlist of Fiction

Welcome to my Journal. In here, you'll find my various scrbblings.  The majority of fics are kink meme fills, but I don't write any hard smut.  I can't write it, I would embarass myself. orrection, the harder NC-17 fics are trickling into the journal.   I write a lot of Genfic and rare pairs.  I have an odd chameleon-like way of writing a lot of odd pairings, even if I don't ship them personally.  Short fics are less than 500 words.

Long/medium fics is anything over 500 words. If I managed to forget a warning, please politely let me know with a private message.      None of the fics have been beta-read and I welcome (polite) concrit. Please be polite and comments are welcome and encouraged

Yuletide Letter (2014)

Dear Yuletide Writer

I'll go through some of the things I enjoy and some things I'd rather avoid when reading.

Stuff I don't normally read:
--Mpreg or kidfic
--intense gore/horror
--Character death (unless they're minor characters or villains)
--tragedy/sad!fic
--no character bashing of female characters (I really can't stand this even if I dislike the character myself)

As to what I do like, I find that it varies fandom to fandom. I can be incredibly shippy with some fandoms and others I would prefer gen fic. I’m also an absolute hurt/comfort junkie and it’s not always easy to find h/c fic in small fandoms. I'm all about characters and I like character studies and explorations of relationships more than specific genre tropes and kinks. I like fics that are missing scenes from canon. I'm a sucker for characters sitting around and talking and I write a lot of fics that are like this. I love fics about close friendships and comfort.

I'm requesting these canons because I love the characters and the dynamics between the characters and I started reading fanfiction to explore what's not seen in canon. So I'll tell you what I love about the canon, why I love the characters I've requested, suggest a few broad ideas and hopefully that will inspire and help you write your fic.

For your reference, here's my ao3 page: http://archiveofourown.org/users/Jenny_Starseed

Endeavour (TV)

I have a weakness for lonely, brilliant detectives and Endeavour is one of my favourites. I think he's a bit of a tragic character in his loneliness, his past and his not-so-great future (there would be more shipping in this fandom if only we didn't know he'd die as an unmarried alcoholic). I love how awkward he is. I love that he's a shameless romantic and that it makes him vulnerable. I like that under all that polite prickliness, he's a decent and good person.

What I really crave is Endeavour Hurt/Comfort. Have him hospitalized. Give him a fever. You can beat him up, drowned, hit by a car, kidnapped...you get the idea. Endeavour is also the sort who doesn't seem to ask for help when he needs it, which could push the h/c even further (I don't mind if he gets really sick working on a case and collapses when it ends.) Have Thursday, Debyrn or Strange get protective or angry on his behalf because of what has happened to him. I’m pretty shameless about how ridiculous I’ll allow h/c fic to be as long as they push my id-ficcy buttons.

If you're not into writing H/C, then I'd love some Thursday and Endeavour friendship fic. I like the mentor/protector role Thursday has taken on in regards to Endeavour. Maybe a missing scene from one of the episodes. Or you can have them doing something on a break or in between cases. Or maybe a scene between Thursday and Morse after the episode Home. Or maybe a scene of them interviewing suspects. I wouldn't mind some wing!fic either if you're inclined to write some.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

What I love about the canon is how flawed the characters are and how TTSS centers around themes of loyalty (between loyalty to others and loyalty to your ideals). I like character studies and I like fics where you explore relationships between characters who work as a team in high-stress situations. I

I like how in Smiley's People, Peter is someone Smiley trusts and has absolute faith in. I liked the scene when Smiley arrives at Peter's door and Peter attacks him because he doesn't realize who Smiley was at first. Peter's embarrassed and ashamed when he comes to realize who Smiley is and Smiley looks a little fearful of his friend, almost like he forgot how ferocious Peter can be since Peter is usually so deferent and respectful with Smiley. And then they fall into their old roles and their partnership works.

I prefer gen-fic character study fic. I would really like it you could write a Smiley and Peter friendship fic because I think Peter's loyalty to Smiley is one of the most beautiful things in the books and film. In the books, Peter is willing to sacrifice his career by being loyal to Smiley. I also like Smiley's paternal, quiet and kindly concern for Peter. I'm also interested in Smiley's sense of betrayal when he finds out who the mole is. Emotional hurt/comfort between Smiley and Peter would be lovely. Or maybe a future fic where Smiley and Peter meet up for drinks.

Parade's End (TV)

I’m a big fan of the book but what I like about the film version is that it did away/ignored the horrible ending Ford gave Christopher and Valentine. I love Christopher as a character. He’s got a basic human decency about him. He’s dutiful, conscientious and he can be quietly stubborn when things go against his code of ethics. He’s also a tragic character in that his values are anachronistic to the shifting attitudes during the war and he’s slow to adapt, assuming everyone is as decent as him because they’re in same class as him.

I would love a Christopher centric fic. I would love some Christopher H/C fic. Maybe he contracts the Spanish flu (I would love it if he did), has a mental break down from the PTSD he suffers. He seems like the sort who would hide his injuries if he was injured out of duty and pride.

If you don’t want to write that, I would love some post-war Valentine/Christopher fic. I’m a big fan of the book but I can’t stand the fate Ford gives Christopher and Valentine and the mini-series is comforting in that they chose to end it on a happy note. So a happy-ending fic of what their post-war life looks like when Christopher finally divorces Sylvia.

Or if you want to write gen fic, I’m good with missing scenes from the mini-series. Maybe you could a friendship fic between Christopher and MacMaster. Sylvia scheming behind her husband’s back. Or maybe you could write a fic where General Campion giving Christopher more of his advice or a fic exploring Christopher’s relationship to his brother.

Endeavour (TV)

Characters requested: Endeavour Morse, Fred Thursday

I have a weakness for lonely, brilliant detectives and Endeavour is one of my favourites. I think he's a bit of a tragic character in his loneliness, his past and his not-so-great future (there would be more shipping in this fandom if only we didn't know he'd die as an unmarried alcoholic). I love how awkward he is. I love that he's a shameless romantic and that it makes him vulnerable. I like that under all that polite prickliness, he's a decent and good person.

Maybe a missing scene from one of the episodes. Or you can have them doing something on a break or in between cases. Or maybe a scene between Thursday and Morse after the episode Home. Or maybe a scene of them interviewing suspects. I don't mind a bit of unrequited UST between them, particularly if Thursday is the one attracted to Morse. I wouldn't mind some wing!fic either.

Lewis

Characters Requested: Robby Lewis, James Hathaway

Lewis is my comfort tv. The scenery is nice, the mysteries are well plotted and unpredictable, the bad guys are always caught and the gentle banter between Lewis and Hathaway always makes me smile. I love how earnest Lewis is and his simple easy-going goodness. I also like Hathaway’s sense of humour.

I would prefer gen fic for this fandom and/or canon compliant ships. So Lewis/Hobson is absolutely welcome. I would love a friendship fic with Lewis and Hathaway. What do they do after they leave the Oxford Police? What does one of their pub nights look like? One of my favourite scenes in Lewis is when Hathaway and Lewis go to Hobson’s birthday party and they absolutely loathe it. I liked how Hathaway’s snarky humour comes out when he’s a bit drunk, referring to the romantic poets as the boys in the band to a humourless professor they meet while escaping the party in the episode "And the Moonbeams Touch the Sea." Maybe they decide to go to another one of Hobson's birthday parties again. If you feel up to it, you can also write a fic where Lewis talks about Morse to Hathaway. I don’t remember if they ever talked about Morse on the show, so I wouldn’t mind a fic about that.

Please no Lewis/Hathaway. I don’t ship them at all.

Parade's End (TV)

Characters Requested: Christopher Tietjens

I’m a big fan of the book but what I like about the film version is that it did away/ignored the horrible ending Ford gave Christopher and Valentine. I love Christopher as a character. He’s got a basic human decency about him. He’s dutiful, conscientious and he can be quietly stubborn when things go against his code of ethics. He’s also a tragic character in that his values are anachronistic to the shifting attitudes during the war and he’s slow to adapt, assuming everyone is as decent as him because they’re in same class as him.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011 film)

Characters Requested: George Smiley, Peter Guillam

What I love about the canon is how flawed the characters are and how TTSS centers around themes of loyalty (between loyalty to others and loyalty to your ideals). I like character studies and I like fics where you explore relationships between characters who work as a team in high-stress situations. I've read the whole smiley Trilogy so if you want to incorporate anything from the books, I'd encourage you to. But I'm perfectly fine if you only want to stick to the 2011-movie canon. I like that Peter is gay in the film and it adds a certain secrecy and angst about Peter that is lacking in the books.

I prefer gen-fic character study fic. Extra bonus points if you could write a Smiley and Peter friendship fic because I think Peter's loyalty to Smiley is one of the most beautiful things in the books and film. In the books, Peter is willing to sacrifice his career by being loyal to Smiley. I also like Smiley's paternal, quiet and kindly concern for Peter. I'm also interested in Smiley's sense of betrayal when he finds out who the mole is. Or you can write a fic where Smiley is angsting and obsessing over getting the better of Karla. Emotional hurt/comfort between Smiley and Peter would be lovely. And it would be nice if Smiley was quietly accepting of Peter's homosexuality.

Yuletide Letter

Hello!

This is my first time doing Yuletide so I'm a bit nervous about what to say. I've joined Yuletide more to write interesting fic so receiving a gift fic is really bonus icing on the cake for me. I'd be thrilled to have more fic in any of these fandoms and hopefully you'll have fun writing them too.

I'll go through some of the things I enjoy and some things I'd rather avoid when reading.


Stuff I don't normally read:
--Mpreg or kidfic
--intense gore/horror
--Character death (unless they're minor characters or villains)
--tragedy/sad!fic
--no character bashing of female characters (I really can't stand this even if I dislike the character myself)


As to what I do like, I find that it varies fandom to fandom. I can be incredibly shippy with some fandoms and others I would prefer gen fic. I'm a sucker for UST stories where they eventually get together in the end. I'm all about characters and I like character studies and explorations of relationships more than specific genre tropes and kinks. I like fics that are missing scenes from canon. I'm a sucker for characters sitting around and talking and I write a lot of fics that are like this. I love fics about close friendships and comfort.


I'm requesting these canons because I love the characters and the dynamics between the characters and I started reading fanfiction to explore what's not seen in canon. So I'll tell you what I love about the canon, why I love the characters I've requested, suggest a few broad ideas and hopefully that will inspire and help you write your fic. I apologize if the letter is a bit long, but I've heard Yuletide writers like long letters so hopefully this will be helpful rather than be intimidating.


Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Film and Books)

What I love about the canon is how flawed the characters are and how TTSS centers around themes of loyalty (between loyalty to others and loyalty to your ideals). I like character studies and I like fics where you explore relationships between characters who work as a team in high-stress situations. I've read the whole smiley Trilogy so if you want to incorporate anything from the books, I'd encourage you to. But I'm perfectly fine if you only want to stick to the 2011-movie canon. I like that Peter is gay in the film and it adds a certain secrecy and angst about Peter that is lacking in the books.

Emotional hurt/comfort between Smiley and Peter would be lovely. And it would be nice if Smiley was quietly accepting of Peter's homosexuality.

Chrestomanci Chronicles by Diana Wynne Jones

I love the whimsy of the Chrestomanci castle and the way magic is a systematic skill to be learned. The Chrestomanci series has that in common with the Harry Potter books, but I always liked the intimate family/apprenticeship dynamics within the Chrestomanci castle. I have read all the Chrestomanci books but my favourites are Conrad's Fate, Charmed Life and The Lives of Christopher Chant. You can incorporate any minor characters from those books.

I would love a Cat Chant or Christopher Chant centric gen fic. I know I requested both characters, but you don't have to write both of them together in a fic. I'll be ok if you want to write a young Christopher Chant centric fic without Cat and vice versa.

I love Cat's good hearted loyalty and his modesty. I love Christopher's confidence, style and slight arrogance. You can also do a family/domestic fic of Millie and Christopher!Chrestomanci with the children. A plotty fic where Cat or Christopher gets in trouble is also welcome. Or maybe a missing scene fic between Christopher!Chrestomanci and Cat where Chrestomanci stops being so intimidating to Cat. Maybe there's a point where Christopher!Chrestomanci tries to establish a relationship with Cat beyond an apprentice/successor because Christopher!Chrestomanci doesn't want a repeat of the resentful early relationship with he had with Gabriel. I'd rather not have any shippy fic in this fandom with the exception of Millie/Christopher. I love the charm and humour of the books and I'm mostly asking for a fluffy gen fic that gives me warm fuzzies on Christmas day.

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

I'm a bit of a sucker for stories about privileged British people who live decadent lives but live by arbitrary social rules that have the potential to make them incredibly unhappy.

I love the character Sebastian. The book is told from the point of view of Charles who doesn't seem to understand his friend, so there are a ton of gaps in canon to fill for such a deliciously conflicted, slightly tragic and charming character. His family torments him as does his religious conscience for reasons that no one is particularly interested in. His family considers him to be a contrary misfit and Charles is at a complete lost when Sebastian spirals into alcoholism.

And there's so much slashy subtext in Brideshead and in the intense friendship between Charles and Sebastian. It's pretty much my head canon that Sebastian is a closeted homosexual whose catholic guilt and isolation from his family contributes to his depression and addictions. Though the novel never makes a direct connection between the two, I think his unofficial break-up with Charles was the thing that caused Sebastian to become a full-blown alcoholic. I'm a sucker for missing scene stories, which there are numerous for Sebastian: the definitive night when he decides Charles has "betrayed" him, confrontations with his family about his drinking, the conversation with Cordelia in an isolated village near the end of the novel, his relationship with Anthony Blanche etc. Or maybe a scene between Charles and Sebastian told from Sebastian's POV. I wouldn't mind a porny fic between Charles or Sebastian where months of UST leads up to a sex in the rooms at Oxford or at Brideshead. I'm also a sucker for fics dealing with addictions and all of their angst.
