I felt like I needed to post here to show off my new OTW Member icon!  Ao3 has become so much more awesome over the years since I first became a member; if you haven't done so, please contribute to their current fundraising campaign.  I know we all use the Archive so much these days, so please support such a great feature.  /PSA

God, this has been the week from crazy-land.  Monday was the October bank holiday, which sounds good, but just meant that I lost a day of work with a loan closing coming up next week.  Then, my co-worker is in Europe for a week, so I got dragged along on two site visits, for which I had to get up around 4 AM on both Tuesday and Thursday.  I didn't leave the office until after 9 PM last night, so I'm dead tired.  But!  In spite of the craziness, still loving the job.  And I'm going to visit family this coming weekend, so that will hopefully go well.

Dear Yulewriter,

thank you so much for writing a story for me! Rest assured that you really can't go wrong here. All my requested fandoms are very rare, and just the existence of new fic in any of them will make me incredibly happy.

I've requested all of these before, and have been lucky enough to receive fic for all of them before, but I really desperately want more. (With about equal amounts of craving, so no matter which we matched on, you are going to give me something wonderful.) I suppose what I really want for each of them is a giant fandom with hundreds of stories, but since I'm not going to get that, Yuletide it is. My once-a-year chance. :)

Fic Likes & Dislikes )

As for the fandoms and ships I requested, everything important is in the AO3 requests, but if you'd like some additional info/ideas/thoughts, here you go, in no particular order:

Ring of Swords - Eleanor Arnason )

Starfire series - Various Authors )

Nantucket trilogy - S.M. Stirling )

1632 series - Various Authors )

Ahem. Yes, that was pretty long. But please don't worry if my suggestions aren't your cup of tea; as I said above, any story you can come up with around these characters will make me jump with glee. Most of all, have fun writing! :)
