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.
