beatrice_otter: Plot Bunny Princess (Plot Bunny Princess)
I'm feeling the need to write something different. You know what that means; fic prompt time. So. Anyone who wants me to write them a fic, comment here. Fics will be at least 500 words long. Each person should make at least two requests, of which I will write one. Each request should contain one or more characters from the list below and a short prompt (theme, quote, etc). ONE request may be for a sequel/timestamp/missing scene/etc. from a fic I have already written. (For instance, I would not be averse at all to writing something more in the universe where Maria von Trapp from the Sound of Music was a Potential.) Crossovers are acceptable, provided I am familiar with both fandoms. I do not write slash or explicit sex.

beatrice_otter: Batman Beyond (Terry Batman)
The first Yuletide fic I wrote was for shobogan, who wanted Dana and Max learning to be superheros from Barbara Gordon.

Title: Learning Curve
Fandom: Batman Beyond
Word Count:  6,431
Written For: [personal profile] shobogan 
Beta: [personal profile] sinesofinsanity 
AN: I couldn't figure out how to fit Damien in to a canon where Bruce and "Talia" interact and neither mentions or even hints about him. So in this continuity, there are only four Robins.
Summary: Dana knows who she is. What she doesn't know is who she's going to be.

( Dana stared at the costumes in the cases, coat wrapped firmly around her. )

beatrice_otter: Yuletide (Yuletide)
DON'T PANIC.

This is a very long letter with lots of stuff, but DO NOT PANIC.  I'm actually fairly easy to please; I have never been disappointed with a Yuletide story.  The most important thing for me in a fic is that the characters are well-written and recognizably themselves.  Even when I don't like a character, I don't go in for character-bashing.  If nothing else, if the rest of this letter is too much or my kinks just don't fit yours, just concentrate on writing a good story with good spelling and grammar and everyone in character and I will almost certainly love what you come up with.

One thing: I do have an embarrassment squick, which makes humor kind of hit-or-miss sometimes.  The kind of humor where someone does something embarrassing and the audience is laughing at them makes me uncomfortable because I identify too much with the person getting laughed at, so instead of being funny it is squicky.  On the other hand, the kind of humor where the audience is laughing with the characters I really enjoy.

beatrice_otter: Yuletide (Yuletide)
General likes and dislikes )

Donovan's Reef
Amelia Deham, Leilani Dedham, gen preferred.  At the end of the movie, Amelia has accepted her siblings, but she's still a privileged Boston upper-class woman, with no real understanding of the gap between her experience and theirs. I'd love some exploration of the relationship between the two of them. And, you know, I love all of the other characters too, so any of them you want to include would be wonderful.

Here is my picspam/pimp post from last year.  Please be very careful with this story.  I love the movie, I grew up watching it regularly, but it has problems.  For all its progressive (for its day)  handling of the situation with the Dedham children, it handled the Asian characters poorly.  Also, it was fairly misogynist in its treatment of Amelia.  I would absolutely adore fic that handled the issues the film raised (and didn't raise) with more delicacy than was possible in a John Wayne action comedy of the early 1960s.  Also, there really isn't much chemistry between Amelia and Gunns in the movie, so if you want to make their romance a major point you're going to have to work to convince me that they're in love, or find other reasons for them to be getting married.  The Duke is a lot of fun, but my absolute favorite character is Lelani.  She's young, but she's very intelligent, and very sensitive, and can stand up for herself when she has to.  (I love the scene where Amelia mocks her for giving thanks to the goddess of the canyon for the Christmas tree, and Lelani quietly puts her in her place.)

Chalion series
Ingrey kin Wolfcliffe/Ijada dy Castos.  Anything with these two characters, but particularly something post-book dealing with their spirit animals and the theology and politics around that.

What I love about this series is the way it brings theology to life without being preachy about it. The way theology is shown to have concrete impact on the way people act, and the way they respond to the world. It's not just gods and goddesses throwing lightning bolts around, but a truly deep spirituality that is fully integrated into the world and the characters. What I also love about the characters is that they are realistic and flawed and still manage great things despite (and sometimes because of) their flaws. What I love about Lois' works in general is the lyrical nature of her prose, the depth and breadth and weight of the way she uses words and themes and mood, though that's harder to pull off. If that's not your style of writing, I'd rather something plainly written than something overflowing with purple prose because you're not used to writing that way.

Batman Beyond
Terry McGinnis, Maxine Gibson.  I would enjoy just about anything set in this universe.  Some ideas: casefic.  Something about Bruce training Terry to be Batman and/or Max being trained by Commisioner Gordon to be Batgirl (although obviously focusing on Terry and Max, not their mentors).  Something about how Terry and/or Max make the legacy of the Bat their own.  An adventure with the Justice League (not focusing on Superman).

I love the whole series and all the characters.  I adore Terry and Max and Dana.  I love how old and grim Bruce has gotten.  I love Barbara Gordon, police commissioner.  I love piecing together the history, how we got there from Justice League/BtAS/Superman.  I wish we'd seen more of how Terry gets trained, because you know Batman has got to be giving him more than we see on the series.  I wish we'd seen more of Max, and I wish we'd gotten to see more of Dana than just "Terry's Girlfriend".  I love characters from the rest of the DC universe too, but I can get stories about them anywhere.  If you bring in, say, Green Lantern or Superman or Wonder Woman I'll enjoy it, but I can get those stories anywhere.  I can't get BB fic anywhere, so please do focus on the BB characters.

Bride and Prejudice
So they get married.  And then what?  In movies that's the end, but in real life it's just the beginning.  William and Lalita come from two very different cultures, and neither of them is going to just give up their culture.  And Darcy suffers from foot-in-mouth and Lalita's not the type to just let him get away with it.  There will be some big adjustments for both.  Then there's Balraj and Jaya--less culture gap, but still a big gap in experience.  Then there's Chandra, whom I'd love to see more of (though please as little Mr. Kohli as possible).  There are so many possibilities.

I love Bride and Prejudice for how vibrant it is, and how over the top, and I adore the musical numbers (though I really don't like songfic, that's one part of the movie that I don't think translates well to fic).  I love how Lalita is such a forceful personality.
beatrice_otter: Yuletide (Yuletide)
The most important thing for me in a fic is that the characters are well-written and recognizably themselves.  Even when I don't like a character, I don't go in for character-bashing.  If nothing else, if the rest of this letter is too much or my kinks just don't fit yours, just concentrate on writing a good story with good spelling and grammar and everyone in character and I will almost certainly love what you come up with.

If you want to make me the happiest recipient ever, here are some other things to keep in mind: I like strong women, and I love the acknowledgment that strength comes in many forms, of which the kinds put forward by modern western feminism are only a few.  I like cultural diversity, and to know that culture matters to people, but I don't like it when non-western culture is fetishized or exoticised.  I like quirky characters.  I like acknowledgment that different people can have different points of view without either of them being wrong.  I like stories that engage with problematic aspects of the source, and which deal with privilege in one way or another.  If you don't know what I mean by privilege, here are a few links: White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack, and possibly the Spock/Uhura Racefail Prevention Post and associated links. I like plotty, gen stories, and plotty stories in general, but I don't like explicit sex of any kind, nor sex thrown in just because.  If there's going to be sex, there needs to be a reason for it within the story--it advances the plot, or characterization, or something (and, again, if you have to do it, please don't make it explicit).

Donovan's Reef

16th Century RPF
Martin Luther/Katharina von Bora, Philip Melanchthon.  I would love a story where Luther starts theological fights, Melanchthon tries to smooth things over, and Katie pwns them all. Exploration of theological issues a plus.
Luther, Katharina von Bora, and Phillip Melanchthon.  I'd love something where their strong personalities really shone forth.  (And they all had strong personalities in their different ways.)  I would also love something that dealt with the theology if you know enough about it to do a good job, and please, please do not give them modern 20th-21st century attitudes.

Chalion series
Ingrey kin Wolfcliffe/Ijada dy Castos.  Anything with these two characters, but particularly something post-book dealing with their spirit animals and the theology and politics around that.

Batman Beyond
Mary McGinnis, Matt McGinnis, Terry McGinnis.  I would love a story about Mom and Matt finding out about Terry's nighttime job.  One possible idea: Terry's a backup guy for the Justice League and gets called out in a big emergency. Part of the emergency is that someone has hacked the JL computers looking for family/friends to use as hostages, so the Justice League rounds up everyone they can get and puts them in one place so it's easy to protect them. Mom and Matt have no idea why *they've* been included, think its all some mistake. Until the emergency is over, and Terry comes to pick them up ...

I love the whole series and all the characters.  I adore Terry and Max and Dana.  I love how old and grim Bruce has gotten.  I love Barbara Gordon, police commissioner.  I love piecing together the history, how we got there from Justice League/BtAS/Superman.  I wish we'd seen more of how Terry gets trained, because you know Batman has got to be giving him more than we see on the series.  I love characters from the rest of the DC universe too, but I can get stories about them anywhere.  If you bring in, say, Green Lantern or Superman or Wonder Woman I'll enjoy it, but I can get those stories anywhere.  I can't get BB fic anywhere, so please do focus on the BB characters.
beatrice_otter: OMGWTFBBQ!  Hector dies in book 22!  Spoilers! (Spoilers)
Here is my current WIP list:

[livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange fic.  (And once it's done, I'll probably have Yuletide to start.)

Desert Between sequel, set several years later focusing on Spock's Vulcan wife.  And what she thinks of the whole situation.  (I'm still not sure this is what would happen, if this is the choice Uhura would make; but [personal profile] laurajv wanted to know what would happen if it did, and upon reflection I realized so did I.)

DS9 original character fic that's been on the backburner for some time but is slowly moving up my priority list.  It began out of my fascination with Vulcans, and my love of Bajor and DS9, and my realization that it was highly unrealistic that the only non-Vulcans we see marry Vulcans are Humans, and there's a whole Federation out there.  So I set out to write a Vulcan/Bajoran love story.  Which then got bogged down.  I have since realized that it is not, in fact, a love story.  It is a gen friendship story, about growing and learning and respecting culture despite differences, and about being in transition.  It's one of those where I'm not sure it will ever be finished, but I like it and so keep going back and fiddling with it.

Batman Beyond--Terry and guns.  A short meditation on guns and the way people react to them that [personal profile] hradzka rightly pointed out needed an actual, you know, plot to go with the philosophy.  I will get back to it some day.

Superman Movieverse/DC fic to the same plot bunny that spurred [livejournal.com profile] ljs_lj to write Biopsychology (and are you ever going to get around to writing that new sequel to it?)  My version is quite different, as the plot would focus on/be triggered by Kara Zor-El (Supergirl) arriving on Earth.  It's mostly about her and her issues and what she thinks of Earth and her cousin (and, eventually, his screwed-up love life, which is where the plot bunny comes in).  Since I finished my Richard-focused post-Superman Returns fic "A Family Story," I've had very little motivation to get back to this one, so it's staying on the back burner for now.  Maybe next year.  (I do intend to eventually get back to it.)

BSG AU called Jumping Time (and this may be the only time in my life I've ever been able to come up with a title before I had to post the fic).  Of all my WIPs, the least likely to get finished because while I have quite a number of scenes for it running around my head, I have no plot to tie them together with.  Basically, at the end of the series when Kara jumps the Galactica, instead of finding a new Earth they find themselves back in time about 6 months before the Cylon attack, and decide that the best way to save the Colonies is for the Rebel Cylons and the Final Five to infiltrate the Cylons and stage a coup against the Ones

I have several other plot bunnies, but those are the ones that not only have files, they have files pinned to my start bar so I can access them easily and they will stay in my head.

beatrice_otter: Yuletide (Yuletide)
Okay, here I am to pimp my fandoms for Yuletide.  Some of them, you know, but one of them I bet you've never heard of.

Donovan's Reef is a morality play about racism disguised as a sixties action-romcom starring John Wayne and Lee Marvin.

It takes place in French Polynesia, in the sixties. Twenty years earlier during WWII, three US Navy guys washed ashore and fought the Japanese with the help of the natives.* Two of them (Dr. William Dedham and "Guns" Donovan (The Duke)) stayed, one to open a hospital, one to run a shipping company and a bar. The third (Gilhooley, played by Lee Marvin) is a disreputable sailor who shows up regularly to start bar fights. Dr. Dedham married the Polynesian princess Manulani and had three children with her, Lelani, Sally, and Luke.

Lelani, Luke, and Sally Dedham

Lelani is a beautiful, poised, teen girl at home in her role as royalty but conscious of what it means to not be white. At the start of the movie, Manulani has been dead for years and Doc is headed off on one of his regular traveling-hospital type trips around the islands, where he will be incommunicado for some time.

BACK IN BOSTON, we find that Dedham has a grown (white) daughter Amelia who has never met him, who is now the CEO of the family shipping business, a very proper (and hypocritical) New England operation. An aunt has just died and left most of her stock to Doc Dedham, which the family (not approving of him running off to the Pacific 20 years ago) wants to swindle him out of. So Amelia sets out to French Polynesia to dig up a reason they can declare that he's not "of sound moral character."  (For example, that he's gotten up to something with "one of those native women.")

Miss Amelia Dedham of Boston, inquiring where she might find her father.

Guns, Gilhooley, and the Governor of French Polynesia get wind of her visit and decide that the best thing to do is to pretend that Lelani, Sally, and Luke are Guns' children until the Doc gets back to explain things to his Boston daughter.

The Governor, Gillhooley, and Guns

And so begins the farce. Amelia is charmed by Guns' three "half-caste" children, the governor wants to marry Amelia for her $18 million, Guns and Amelia are sparring and flirting, Gilhooley is picking fights, and Amelia's trying to figure out who this Manulani person was, why her father has a portrait of her, and why no one will talk about her.
Amelia and Manulani's portrait

Meanwhile, the three kids (particularly Lelani) are watching this from the sidelines, unable to greet their sister as a sister because they are not white.
Lelani watching from the sidelines

It all turns out well in the end--Amelia learns the kids are her siblings and embraces them, realizing (at least a little) how wrong prejudice is, and its costs. (She also agrees to marry Guns, but the romance is fairly trite and predictable and there's not much chemistry between the two actors, so I don't usually pay much attention to the love story.)  Meanwhile, Lelani is mature and proud of her heritage, and stands up for herself even when that means contradicting an older sister she desperately wants to please.

Now, the movie isn't perfect. It was made during the sixties, and there's plenty of misogyny to go around. And the casting director didn't quite get the distinction between "Asian" and "Polynesian" at all times.  And there's some anti-Asian bigotry and stereotypes played for laughs.  (Yes, John Wayne character is also played for laughs at times, but it's different for a straight white man who gets some heroic and romantic stuff too.  Also, the acting isn't always the greatest, particularly the actress who plays Amelia. On the other hand, the actress who plays Lelani is fabulous. And their handling of the racial issues are surprisingly non-faily for the era, all things considered--I love how Lelani quietly puts Amelia in her place when Amelia starts trying to mock her for following her peoples' religious traditions.

The original trailer is on Youtube.


 
Note how it never mentions anything but John Wayne's fighting, exotic locations, and the love story--the message of the film is completely missing.
Original movie poster from Donovan's Reef

*Okay, in reality the Japanese never reached French Polynesia, please don't let minor details like that get in your way.



Aside from Donovan's Reef, I will be requesting

Reformation RPF

(come on, you can't tell me you've never had a sudden desire for fic about Luther, Melanchthon, and Katherine von Bora et al, where Luther starts theological fights, Melanchthon tries to smooth them over, and Katie pwns them all?)

Briefly: Martin Luther was the guy who started the Protestant Reformation.  His original goal, to reform the Roman Catholic church and get rid of its abuses and excesses was thrown out the window when they declared him a heretic for it, so he founded his own church and most of Germany followed.  He was a brilliant theologian, and was very pastoral and concerned with the spiritual needs and comfort of his flock.  He was also extremely prejudiced, and could be absolutely vitriolic in his denunciation of anyone who disagreed with him.  Phillip Melanchthon was his right-hand-man, and though he was less brilliant he was also much better in dealing with people.  He was also more willing to compromise, when necessary, leading to Luther (who never compromised) calling him "the pussy-footer."  Katharina von Bora was Luther's wife.  Sent to a convent at age five when her father remarried, she saw the Reformation as her ticket out and escaped with several other nuns inside empty barrels in a merchant's cart (it was illegal for a nun to leave her convent).  She convinced Luther to marry her (although by all accounts he loved her dearly, that came after their marriage).  She ran a farm, a brewery, their household, bore and raised their six (iirc) kids, and had time to talk theology with the many students who came to learn from her husband.  We know she had a profound impact on Luther and his theology; he talks about her frequently, and called her "my Lord."  Alas, because she was a woman, nothing of hers was ever written down.
Martin Luther     Melanchthon     Katharina von Bora

Curse of Chalion
This is a great series by Lois McMaster Bujold of three books: Curse of Chalion, Paladin of Souls, and The Hallowed Hunt.  I'll probably be requesting something from Hunt, which is not connected closely to the other three books.  I want to know what happens next!

Batman Beyond
This was an awesome cartoon of the 90s.  It took place fifty years in the future, when Bruce is a bitter old recluse much too old to go out and be a superhero.  A high-school guy named Terry McGinnis sees his father get murdered by Powers, the guy who took over Wayne Corporation, and shortly thereafter finds the batcave.  He steals the (new, improved batsuit that can fly and turn invisible) to go after his father's killer, and Bruce reluctantly agrees to train him.  Max has a good mother, an annoying kid brother, a cool girlfriend named Dana, and a kickass best friend named Max (short for Maxine).  Although there is a whole new crop of heroes and villains, there are cameos from current-day characters, and one of the fun things about the show is to figure out what happened between now and then ... because Bruce sure isn't telling.  There is still a Commissioner Gordon ... but it's Barbara, not Jim.

beatrice_otter: Me in red--face not shown (Default)
Meme stolen from [personal profile] ljc :
  1. The Watchmen/BSG crossover about Doctor Manhattan, going off to explore the universe and create life. All this has happened before, all this will happen again. He doesn't like being called God.
  2. The BSG AU where, when Kara jumps them using the coordinates from that song at the end of the last episode, they wind up back in time in the colonies just before the Cylon attack.
  3. The Criminal Minds/SG-1 crossover where the SGC is negotiating with a planet that doesn't really want any of the standard trade goods, but they've got a high-profile serial killer but no law enforcement types with the psychological training to catch him/her. So someone suggests that hey, maybe we should lend them a BAU team for a few weeks, catch the serial killer, and give them a start on developing their own profilers.
  4. The Stargate Goes Public story that focuses on the reactions of the US military peeps who weren't in on the program. Navy guys complaining about the Air Force having starships. Special forces guys pointing out that having four-person teams is really stupid; six is a much more tactically flexible number, and if they hadn't given the Stargate to the Chair Force maybe they'd have had fewer screwups like that. JAG lawyers trying to figure out how to fit the de facto decisions made by the SGC over the years because they face situations nobody's ever thought of before into the UCMJ. Marines being ooo-rah. Etc.
  5. The Stargate story that focuses on the diplomatic teams: how they figure out what to trade with each world, and the person who noticed that most worlds are resource-rich and manpower-poor, and that the thing most useful to most worlds is technology just a leetle more advanced than whatever they've got--still within their manufacturing capabilities, but just a little more energy efficient. Cotton gins. Spinning jennies. Better plows. Better mettalurgy. Etc. Or some worlds want sheep with better wool, or larger horses, or other agricultural things. And then having to figure out how to convince General Hammond that what they really need is for the engineers (who want to be studying Ancient or Goa'uld or Asgard technology) to figure out how to build these things and teach the locals how to make and use them. Or convince General Hammond that the SGC needs to buy Merino sheep or what have you. And then figure out how to get them through the Stargate.
  6. Babylon 5. The one about the Centauri princeling in The Lost Tales that Sheridan takes home to Minbar to keep him from turning into the monster Galen says he will.
  7. Doctor Who/Atlantis. The sequel to Survivors.
  8. BSG AU. The stories hinted at in Five AUs I Will Never Write.
  9. Batman Beyond. The one where Terry's in college, still Batman, but moonlighting with the Justice League when they really need him. And they've got a list, really heavily encrypted somewhere, of family members of JL heroes, so that they can whisk them away to a secure location if necessary, and of course Terry's mom and brother are on that list but they still don't know he's Batman, and consequently are sure someone's made a mistake when they get kidnapped to a safehouse with superhero families. The security people guarding them are all, no, you're on the list, Mrs. McGinnis.
  10. Star Trek Reboot. Away team beams down, locals don't like Spock because of his brother, and Spock's all, I don't have a brother, but what's Sybok done? And it turns out that he had forced a telepathic marriage bond on one of the women in town and raped her during his Pon Farr, and now she's pregnant, and Spock has to deal with figuring out how to help her and track down his brother to bring him to justice (which traditionally would be putting him to death, but so many Vulcans have died already, but on the other hand Vulcan doesn't have the resources to deal with a prisoner and most other Federation worlds don't have prisons designed to hold such powerful telepaths as Sybok). Also, Spock has to deal with his friends and crewmates now that part of the story about Pon Farr has come out in the worst possible way.

beatrice_otter: Batman Beyond (Terry Batman)
It's that time of year again! I've signed up, and can't wait to see what I get (both to write and receive). I'm also on the pinch hit list--although there's less chance I'll actually have time to write a pinch-hit this year than last. Still, you never know and it doesn't hurt to go on the list. And there were a lot of fandoms I wanted to request stories in--narrowing it down to the four things to ask for was tough. Waiting is the hard part--Yuletide is so much fun, not just the stories but the whole community and the excitement that you get caught up in.

My one disappointment was the modly ruling to lump all things in the same franchise together for the purposes of eligibility--so, for one not-random-at-all example, since Batman comics are ineligible because it's too big a fandom, the Batman Beyond cartoon (which gets very little fic written for it and only has two characters in common with the Batman comics and is set fifty years in the future so it's pretty distinct) is also ineligible. Rats. I've never been able to sit down and write any Batman Beyond fic myself, even though I have several story ideas I'd love to read if someone else wrote them. (Alas, they are not distinct enough to merit the name "plot bunny.")
