Dear Yuletide writer!

I've been very nice this year, so here's my List of Wishes for Yuletide:

Munchkin Cthulhu (Board Game)

I asked for Inspector, Cultist, Tht Whch Hs N Vwls and Lloyd Lloigor. My favourite pairing, the main Inspector and the main Cultist! I don't mind if you make them lovers, brothers, alienated friends or sworn enemies, just make them adventure through the madness that is Munchkin Cthulhu. I listed two of my dearly beloved monsters, but feel free to drop in some Goths or Cowthulhus or whatever. And make good use of all the fantastic items in the game! Fun (and not so fun) for all, and I'll be happy. (I've asked for this same treat some years ago, the post should still be here: http://pikku-gen.livejournal.com/144829.html#cutid1)

Azur et Asmar (2006)

The most beautiful children's movie in quite a while, and I love all the characters! Azur and Asmar should have had more adventures together. (I may ship them a little bit, but if that isn't your piece of cake, I'll take friendship and brothers fic any time.) I've asked for them also here: http://pikku-gen.livejournal.com/144109.html if you want something more specific.



The 13½ lives of Captain Bluebear

I love this book, the silly characters, the crazy world, the weird words and concepts. I had an idea ages ago about these three characters (here: http://pikku-gen.livejournal.com/144109.html), but anything you can cook up will be fine. Put in some crazy stories and funny accidents, and I'm a happy reader.

Some general guidelines: I love humor, fluff, adventures, world-building, don't mind mature themes (but I don't know if I managed to wish anything that would really merit the M rating, oops) but generic is just fine too. Have fun writing! I'll surely have fun reading.

Dear Yuletide author!

Dark Is Rising Sequence - Susan Cooper


I asked for Jane, Greenwitch and Tethys. I loved the dream sequence where Jane talks to the Greenwitch, so more of the same (at a later time?) would be fine. Maybe the Witch remembers her for a long time and returns to her every now and then, or maybe Jane returns to Cornwall to make a new Witch sometime later? Also, persuading Tethys to let the Witch out of the sea deeps must not be easy for any of them...

Jeeves - P. G. Wodehouse


Anything! I love anything where Bertie gets into (lady) trouble and Jeeves pulls him out by the ear. Literally or figuratively. Also anything horrible that Bertie wears and Jeeves wants to throw away is a bonus. I totally ship them together but don't feel obliged to write any romance unless you feel like it (please do, if you want, though).

Krabat | The Satanic Mill - Otfried Preußler


So wonderful to have this here! I love the story, the Master, Krabat and Tonda, and the kantorka, of course. Tell me something they did during their years in the mill, or what happened afterwards.


I prefer fluffy to angsty, or at least a happy ending if the story is scary or sad, with some humor if it fits the story, and good storytelling. I'm really happy with anything, so have fun, dear writer! If you have a story to tell, I'll read it.

Dear Yuletide Writer!

This Yuletide I'd like to get:

The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant - Stephen R. Donaldson

This is something of a guilty pleasure for me. I don't like the protagonist, but I'd love to hear more about the Land and its inhabitants. Especially Lord Mhoram. In the Illearth War, he totally has an unrequited crush on Covenant (It's there! If you squint! Hard! XD ) and although I definitely do not want anything else than unrequited (oh well, if the pairing rocks your shippings, go on and write some) I'd like to see some of his softer side, considering how he turns into something fierce by the end of the book.

Otherwise I'd like to hear more of my favourite character in the whole series, Saltheart Foamfollower. I love Giants and their eternal search for their homeland, and their end on the Land made me cry. So, Giants, on a happier time or place, a song, a story, something about Coercri or Seareach... anything.

I also put Hile Troy in, so if you prefer to tell me something of him, preferably of his origins or his job before he came to the Land, or possibly how he was erased from the records back there all secret-agent-like, please do!

Gianna Nannini: Bello e impossibile, music video

Dieselpunk, Mad Max style! I don't know how they decided to make this kind of video for a love song, but I don't mind. Run wild with this. The song doesn't need to feature, but tell me the story of all the strange people in this weird world. Cookie points for the 80's style and aesthetics. (Sorry! I was an impressionable kid back then.)

The Odyssey - Homer

I requested Penelope, Nausicaa, Circe and Calypso. What would happen if all these ladies got together and did something that didn't involve any of the male characters of the poem? Whether it was a crossover into a modern/less old/altogether different world or (totally a metric ton of cookie points) in their own time and world, just pass the Bechdel test and make them epic on their own.

Oh, and feel free to include Jenny Everywhere anywhere. I love the idea of an open-source character. ;)

In other words, anything you're comfortable with. I'm pretty happy with anything, from gen to slash, just not overtly violent relationships or abuse of any kind. I generally prefer fluffy to angsty, but then I requested for Mhoram-angst, so I guess I'll handle anything else, too. X) So. Go forth, have fun. I'm really very easy. *offers cookies* And you'll find my former Yuletide letters here, too, if you want to take a peek on what I've requested before.

Dear Yuletide author!

First of all, let me thank you for offering any of my fandoms! I'm really very easy to please, so don't worry.

Munchkin Cthulhu )

Seaward )

Farseer trilogy )

Jurassic Park )

And some general lines: I'm flexible as to what I want to read. Usually I prefer fluffy to angsty and I like well-defined plots, but whatever is easy to you. I'm comfortable with any rating and neither mind nor demand explicit sex scenes. My squicks include explicit violence, especially towards the defenceless, non-con sex, and bullying, and although I've been known to read and like stories including these, I'd prefer not having them for my Yuletide. Run wild with the characters, have fun with the story, add a splash of (bad) humour, and you have me. Even more cookie points for passing the Bechdel Test and/or the Mako Mori test (The Mako Mori test is passed if the movie/fic has: a) at least one female character; b) who gets her own narrative arc; c) that is not about supporting a man’s story. http://chaila.tumblr.com/post/58379322134/spider-xan-also-i-was-thinking-more-about-why) But don't worry if you can't, because of the characters I've chosen. This is supposed to be fun for everyone, right? Go have some, and have my thanks. ;)

Hello, dear Yuletide author!

Here's my wishlist for this wonderful Yuletide!

Topics under here! )

In other words, dear Yuletide writer, I'll take whatever you can write and I'll wuv it and read it again and again and again and... you get the drift. Just be true to the characters, build some world... and have fun. I love me a good world-building.

Darling Yuletide writer!

Here's my list of wishes!

Seaward )

Discworld )

Elenium/Tamuli series )

And then something in general. I like my fics as follows:
-Faithful to the characters and the feel of the world.
-With a liberal dose of humour, if you can manage it; if not, it's okay.
-Rather more fluffy than angsty, except if requested otherwise. Wistful is nice, sad is good, but plain angst without relief isn't exactly what I want to read for Yuletide.
-Romance is optional, I'm not averse to sex, but I'm not actually requesting any (well, maybe one). My squicks are: non-consensual sex, explicit violence in any form including mental, anything involving bodily secretions (I know people are supposed to go to bathroom even in fiction, but do I have to read about it?), and blood. Thus none of these in sexual or romantic connections, please.
-With a good story. Tell me a story and tell it well, and I'll return to it many times. A snippet of life is nice, too, if your plot bunnies escape. And if all you manage to whip up is PWP, you won't hear me complaining... XD

Most of all, dear Yuletide writer, I hope you have a good time writing. If you had fun writing, even if it isn't exactly what I requested, I'll be happy. I really am somewhat flexible on what I want to read, and as long as you take my little squicks into regard, I'll love it.

<3, Pikku Gen

Kirjoituskyvyttömyys: R.I.P

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Ohh, the choices. I might give my body to scientific use, or artistic use, or both (http://www.bodiestheexhibition.com/about-the-exhibition.html) or then I might want to play a bit with possible future archeologists. I might want to have my body buried in full Viking garb and paraphernalia into a site where it might theoretically be preserved for several centuries.

All this notwithstanding, cremation is always an option. Unfortunately the laws state all the ashes should be deposited in the same place (or scattered), otherwise I might want a pinch of me taken to all the places where I never went even though I wanted. Otherwise under a rowan tree would be just fine.

Kirjoituskyvyttömyys: Between a rock and a hard place

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Well. Depends on several things. First, poisonous or not? If both were poisonous, I think I'd still choose snakes - snake venom seems to be quicker. If one species was poisonous and the other wasn't, I'd choose the non-poisonous one. Even if it was spiders. I might live with the horror. (Or might not.)

If both species were not venomous, then snakes without question. Constrictors might be a little iffy, depending whether they've been fed, their size, the temperature of the pit etc. But I'd still take my chances with the snakes, thankyouverymuch.

Oh, and one question would be, whether I'd be tossed in or could I just kind of wade in? Snakes bite easily if they're disturbed by a Gen-sized object dropping on them. Then again I might crush quite a lot of spiders dropping on them... scratch that, I hate the thought of having crushed spider all over me. XP But compared to living crawling spiders... Okay, they would have to toss me into a spider pit, I would prefer to walk into a snake pit. There. Happy now? =)

Kirjoituskyvyttömyys: Minä tarjoan juomasi

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Something green and icky sweet - with a twist. Guava juice, lime and some green booze? I'm not good at fashioning new drinks, but I know people who are.

BTW, what would you put into a Pikku Gen drink? ;D (Looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] skinship...)

Arvoisa toimiston setäherrasetä.

Ymmärrän, että laadunvalvonta on tärkeää ja sitä tulee harrastaa aina silloin tällöin. Mutta, Lapsi Rakas: Kysy siivoojalta, joko hän on pyyhkinyt pölyt tietyltä alueelta ennen kuin teet laaduntarkkailupyyhkäisyn pöydälle! Totta helvetissä siinä on pölyä, jollei sitä ole vielä pyyhitty.

Raivostuneesti Teidän,

[hävytön kerjäys] Huomasin, että maksettu tilini ja ylimääräiset käyttäjäkuvat ovat lähestymässä taas loppuaan. Haluaisiko joku visallinen uudistaa tilauksen lahjanomaisesti ja ilmoittaa summan ja tilinumeronsa, että voin maksaa kulut? Electron kun ei edelleenkään kelpaa ja mikään taho ei halunnut myöntää mulle varsinaista Visaa, edes opiskelijasellaista. [/hävytön kerjäys] Kiitoooos!

Food meme.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you've eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.


The VGT Omnivore's Hundred:
EDIT. Better hide it, longish. )

Well, there's still something to expect. I still wonder why some of the foods were on the list and some weren't, but I guess anyone can make a must list of their own.

I wish I could draw so I could give you the images. And yes, there's more where they came from; these are just the best ones. Someone had fun scrubbing toilets today. XD

Arvoisat tiellähölkkääjät.

Älkää, pyydän, älkää hölkätkö keskellä yhdistettyä kävely- ja pyörätietä, ainakaan musiikki korviin pauhaten. Kun minä, työmatkapyöräilijä, pyöräilen takaanne ja rimpautan kelloa kohteliaan yhden kerran, oletan, että se kuullaan ja hölkkääjä väistää jommallekummalle puolelle. Kun vastoin odotuksiani hölkkääjä ei siirrykään minnekään vaan jatkaa suoraa linjaa keskellä tietä, minulle tulee hätä - etenkin, jos olen laskenut vauhtini sellaiseksi että hölkkääjä ehtii reagoida ja siirtyä ennen kuin olen kohdalla.

Olin napikasti vajaa ajaa päällesi, nuppuseni, ja silkkaa pelästystäni saatoin sanoa vähän pahasti. Mutta kuulovamma on kuulovamma, oli se itseaiheutettu tai ei. Kuulovammaksi muistaakseni lasketaan sellainen josta on haittaa liikenteessä, ja mistä on, jollei nappikuulokkeista joita ei pyöräilijä takaapäin näe eikä siis pysty olettamaan ettei hölkkääjä kuule?

Kirjoituskyvyttömyys: Älyllisen elämän etsintä

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I'm pretty certain there is, but the trouble is there's so much universe (and even this galaxy) we're likely to never know or find out about it. I'm not afraid of possible contact as such, since information is probably the only thing we could exchange.

And *points to the icon* I'd be the first one to say hello if something actually came and dropped by... XD Xenophile to the core.

*stunned silence*

Robert Holdstock is dead. One of my absolutely favourite writers. And I never got to meet him.

Who's going to write me more of Lavondyss, now?

He's gone into my personal Mythago Wood, for sure.
