I wrote the best Yuletide Author letter ever. Then LJ ate it. JFC.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for offering my fandom(s). I am always super excited to read about these characters, and very thankful to Yuletide and *you* for giving me the opportunity to read about them.
#1 You do not have to write PWP. I love gen, character studies, friendship, romance, slash, femslash, and het. If you don't write porn, do not force yourself.
#2 Polyamory is the answer
Competency, snappy dialog, humor, mystery, crack!fic, dark!fic, crossovers, angst, adventure, porn, and fics where everyone is a student at Hogwarts, slice of life, curtain fic, kid!fic, make-overs, and kinks. I LOVE KINKS [caveat: I am *not* into: Rape, Scat, Bestiality, and Kids]
I love tropes! I especially love tropes that have been turned on their head and played with a bit more than usual. I love people [especially women] who love sex. I love women who take control and go after what they want. I love friendship that turns into romance. I love one night stands that turn into friendship. I love couples, threesomes, foursomes, orgies, and polyamory.
I love ambition, goals, and forcing yourself to do more than you ever thought you could. I love Hetero-life-mates and Homo-life-mates and feel like everyone everywhere should have one of each. I love bisexality, demi-sexuality, asexuality, homosexuality ... and so on and so forth ;-)
I love the mountains, the beach, football, olympic sports, camping, rafting, movies, music, yoga, supernatural, fancy dinners, wine, dancing, tattoos, body piercing, comics, natural materials, sorting other fandoms, motorcycles, massage, parties, dressing up, dressing down and staying in, and design.
I dislike: fridging women, slut shaming, misogyny, epithets [please, use the character name], apocalypse, all human AUs, and fics written to fit the season of the ficathon. Please do not write me a fic where everyone is a barrista or in high school or vampires or whatever, I'm not into that at all.

: Buddy fic, slash fic, het fic, PWP you name it I will love it. If you want to write about a woman PLEASE use a canon character, there are many wonderful and amazing women on the show, I love them all.
My favorite thing about SB is the progression of Damien and Scott's teamwork. I love how they started out not working well together at all and now they are a well-oiled machine that completely trusts and relies on the other.
I have deep-seated issues with Damien's lack of safe sex. If you would like to address the very real possibility that he has contracted HIV and/or has fathered dozens of illegitimate children, I would be very into that.Necessary Roughness
I would genuinely love a fic where TK does his best to help Dani and/or Nico with a problem. He doesn't necessarily have to be *successful* but I'd love to see him try to make something better for them. Hart of Dixie
POLYAMORY IS THE ANSWER. For what it's worth, just because there's polyamory doesn't mean you have to write poly sex. I genuinely love any combination of: Zoe, Lemon, Lavon, Wade and George. ANY combinationDancing with the Stars
: This season the All-Stars got to pick a dance from the past and put their own spin on it. More of Maks' dances were chosen than any other choreographer, how does he feel about that? Especially considering he's never won the Mirror Ball.
