Hello, Yuletide Writer!
I'm Rosencrantz and I'm looking forward to what you write! Super excited, actually.
I'll start off with the nitty gritty:
- Likes: Family ties, adventures, mysteries, friendships, and humour. Slash and het too, but don't feel obligated to put in a pairing unless you ship it.
- Dislikes: Sex crimes (by which I mean, if this sex act gets you arrested in Canada, I don't wanna read it), gore, omegaverse.
I like stories that don't go above teen, but if the spirit moves you, I will not mind.
And now, the fandoms:
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes
This film is by the same people who did Sharknado, and at one point Sherlock faces a robot t-rex. Now you know what level of literary brilliance I'm expecting for this.
The world in this movie is bizarre, with tortured logic at its core. I'd love something that fits that. A weird mystery for Robert Holmes, or something else along those lines.
What would the Redheaded League be like if it operated under the insane rules of this universe? How many explosions would be involved?
Is the dancing men a code from Mars?
Does Watson ever get a suit that fits?
- Doctor Who And The Curse of Fatal Death
I wanna see the adventures of Patsy Stone as the Doctor/Joanna Lumley Doctor. Or her adventures with the Master. Or whatever she and the Master get up to after exiting stage left.
I just want something funny, really. I said Patsy Stone up above, but you don't have to make her like the Ab Fab character at all. I mean, she was totally sober in the show.
What is her next companion like, maybe?
How does she do against the Daleks?
What DID happen with the Master?The text
This is a favourite fairytale of mine that I'd love to see an AU version. Any twist you can think of (caveat: I'd prefer not a dark twist) would be cool to see.
Au ideas: Western (this worked great for Rapunzel in Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale), Space, Noir*, Werecat**, Human in boots while everyone is a cat, go wild.
*You may have noticed I have also written a Noir version, but I would be totally excited to get another one set like that because it's such a fun genre.
**this is the only instance I would not be alarmed at Human/Cat

Choose any princess you want! Even ones not nominated!
I want to see how the stories would have gone with the sexes reversed. Ideas:
If you happen to choose to do Mulan, I'd love to see what if Shang was the woman in disguise as a man.
Belle the man and Beast the woman, perhaps! What changes? What's the same?
Snow White, is he more beautiful than his stepmother, or is it his stepfather, or is it some entirely different reason why she wants to kill him off? To keep the throne?
ALSO, though, if you want, Briar Rose/Aurora would be great because back when I was a girl, she was MY princess. Would Princess Philippa do things the same as Prince Philip? I do, in fact, have art of this (not by Ripushko, this is just here for the purposes of Inspiration): Art by Dorodraws
(and if the pictures won't load because old tumblr posts DO THAT for some reason, here's a direct link
I would like them during happier, pre-apocalypse times, if possible. Maybe something involving an urban legend?
If you choose to do something involving vampires, could you use a vampire legend from another culture in the world? There's a ton of really cool ones, like the jenglong (little vampire dolls in Indonesia), or the hopping corpse from China.
I also like creatures like sirens.
The scene where Hellboy pulls Abe from the tank back when they weren't even sure Abe was sapient is something that really stuck with me. Or when Hellboy hugged lil' Liz when she was alone and scared. Hellboy is a character I really love that I'd like to see more of that kind, strong for others side of him.
Also: if the spirit moves you to Abe/Hellboy, I would be very happy. But I know that isn't for everyone!
I nominated one character here: Pteppic.
I want to see what happens to him after the book. Does he check back often? Where does he end up? Does he end up with anyone? Does he end up with no one? Any mishaps? What does he do for a living since killing is out?
Like I said in the letter, I'm happy with gen, het, and slash, and all I want is for Pteppic to be happy at the end. This was my favourite book and I'm sad he just kinda went poof.
(Note: I do not want to see Pteppic/Ptraci, but I would be happy if Ptraci appears!)
Thank you and have fun! Also, since I got asked another time, I don't mind crossovers at all!
