dsidhe: (yuletide)
Dear Yuletide Santa,

Thanks for picking one (or more) of my fandoms! 

To learn more about me, here are my previous Yuletide letters here and here. These were written several years ago, but basic likes and don't likes remain the same:
Likes: slash though there are some het couples that I like and two of which I've requested, happy endings though ambiguous/open-ended endings are good too depending on the fandom, well-written characters
Don't likes: rape, betrayal and in a similar vein: adultery, characters that are written very out-of-character unless there's a good reason, humiliation/embarrassment kink

For my specific requests this year:

Boku no Chikyuu wo Mamotte | Please Save My Earth  
Ogura Jinpachi | Gyokuran  /  Nishikiyori Issei | Enju
I like reincarnation stories and this one is epic. Anime or manga, I'm not fussy. I would prefer slash between Jinpachi and Issei or gen. Canon het can be included, though I would like Jinpachi and Issei to end up together. It can be future-fic or past timeline fic or current timeline (before the manga epilogue) with Jinpachi and Issei as teenagers. Explore their relationship and how their memories of their past lives affect them today. Or maybe a fic on how they've gotten over the past and living their current lives to the fullest. I would prefer a happy ending but an ambiguous ending is fine as well for this fandom. I would like to avoid a sad or tragic story though as their past lives canon is sad enough.

I like this two together though canon did not make that happen. Change the ending or do an alternate universe. You can also go het with Gyokuran and Enju, but I would prefer a story with "present day" Jinpachi and Issei. I would just love to read more fic for these two.

Usagi Drop | Bunny Drop  
Kawachi Daikichi / Kaga Rin
I have few exceptions where I actually like het and this is one of them. I also love the canon het pairing which isn't the popular choice amongst those who read this series. I would love to read het or gen for this fandom.

Gen fic when Rin was younger would be great. Explore some of the other holidays or just how Daikichi and Rin interact with the others. Maybe something with Rin's friends.

Het fic when Rin is older would also be lovely. Maybe something set between the time Rin confesses and Daikichi returns her feelings. How does Daikichi's family handle the news that he's marrying Rin? Or something from Daikichi's POV, how does he fall in love with Rin? Or something post-canon. Maybe Rin and Daikichi as parents.

Happy ending all the way though, please, as this is a cute series and I would prefer to read something in a similar vein to the series.
I love Daikichi and I love Rin. I love them separately and I love them together. So really, any story with the two of them in a similar vein to the anime or mange, I will love. 

Tenshi na Konamaiki | Cheeky Angel  
Amatsuka Megumi / Soga Genzo
This is a hard series to find in English but I loved what I remember of it. Also one of my few het exceptions as I love Megumi and Genzo together. Canon het or gen would be great for this series. On the gen side, you can explore Megumi's relationship with her friends, especially her best friend. Or what about some other adventures and/or other fights? Or maybe something set post-canon with Genzo and Megumi ending up together. If slash is more your thing though, what if Megumi was really born a boy and turns back into a boy? Would Genzo still fall in love with the boy Megumi?

This is a hilarious, over-the-top, crazy manga. Write something in the same vein or something more serious. The art is hit-or-miss for me sometimes but I really like these two together.

My Beautiful Laundrette (1985)  
Johnny Burfoot / Omar Ali
I love this movie and I love Johnny and Omar together. Anything with them would be great. It could be something set during the movie, maybe some missing scenes. Or set post-canon, do they get a civil partnership? Do they now have a chain of laundrettes? How do they deal with the changes in how homosexuality is viewed in Britain post-canon? How do they deal with their very different cultures and backgrounds? How do their friends and family deal with them?

This is one of the first slash movies that I ever saw with a happy ending. Previous to that, slash movies I had watched had tragic/sad endings. This is one of the reasons I love this movie so much. I love the whole East meets West thing Omar and Johnny have. You can play off that more. Or maybe curtain fic (or washer fic for them). It doesn't have to be a serious fic as well, it can also be light-hearted, similar to the ending. I just love this movie and these two together.
Plan B (2009)  
Pablo (Plan B) / Bruno (Plan B)
I really liked the ending of this movie and would have loved to see more. So really, anything post-canon would be great. How do their friends deal with them being together? How does this change their relationship with Laura? Pre-canon could be interesting but I would still love to ultimately see both of them together. During canon, what are the missing scenes you would have loved to see?

Another slash movie with a happy ending. Though I've noticed more and more of these recently. I like the storyline of two relatively straight guys falling in love with each other. It's one of my favorite slash tropes. I also like the relationships they have with their friends (romantic and otherwise). Including any of their friends (including exes) would be great.

And there you have it, my dear Yuletide Santa! Hope you found a few items that sparked your imagination. Hope you have fun writing a fic for me. Thank you!

Who is the hockey equivalent of Lionel Messi?

"For me it is Crosby and Datsyuk. I only see Datsyuk as an opponent. But I can say a lot about Crosby because we are together at practices, I see him in the locker room, I see how he works very hard, how he is dedicated to hockey. And all of his victories, all of his awards came to him through the sweat and very hard work. He is very talented, but the way he works on himself — I don't think I have seen anyone who lives hockey like he does."

From a recent interview with Geno. The English translation is here. Check it out as he gives Bryz advice, talks about beer, the Conn Smythe watch and several other topics.

Towards the end, Ebs says that Hallsy's going to join him and his family for Christmas. One of Ebs's family traditions is wearing the same Christmas pajamas. I really want pics/video/fic of Hallsy staying with Ebs and both of them wearing the same kind of pajamas!

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Combining 2 tumblr posts here:

The Hound initial reaction post:

MAJOR SPOILERS for Sherlock Season 2 episode 2

Lots of feelings about this ep.

Will watch it again for a more detailed follow-up but initial reactions/thoughts below:

  • 10 minutes in and so many good John!faces
  • 30 minutes in - cheekbones line from John about Sherlock's cheekbones! No, they're not gay at all. Note to self: I need to get the exact line.
  • Love seeing John showing his soldier side
  • Doctor!John!
  • Sherlock's reactions about 40 minutes in
  • John calling Sherlock "Spock" and Sherlock not having to ask who Spock is - Fanon: John totally made Sherlock watch Star Trek :). The question is, TOS or the reboot?
  • Friend line from Sherlock - sob sob sob
  • Is Sherlock playing John or not?
  • Swingers or voyeurs? Seriously?
  • The therapist is totally John's type and Sherlock knows this
  • Live-in PA - best description of John, Y/N?
  • Amazing shots of Sherlock on the moor
  • Violet shirt of sex makes an appearance
  • Friends - AAAWWW
  • Mystrade is totally canon!
  • Smart!John
  • Asperger's line - hmmm
  • Mind Palace - I've read this in a SG1 fic, I think
  • Thank God for Lestrade
  • Sherlock has totally experimented on John before, John didn't react as negatively as I thought he would if this was the first time. I've read this in fanfic!
  • Got to see a man about a dog! --> I've read this in fanfic!
  • WTF is with that last scene???

Watching this again later!

The Hounds of Baskerville Second Reaction Post


Watched it the second time with my friend. Initial reactions here. Additional comments below:

  • Forgot about the harpoon - Why is Sherlock covered in blood still sexy?
  • Manic!Sherlock going through nicotine withdrawal was funny and John's faces were the best :)
  • Sherlock's the one driving - compare this with the movie where Watson is the one usually driving
  • John and Sherlock being mistaken for lovers AND the bartender and his chef boyfriend
  • John picking up on Sherlock's cues - they've done this before
  • Did Franklin fake the paw prints or did Fletcher do it?
  • "Mycroft's name literally opens doors"
  • What makes John stay with Sherlock despite everything (being experimented on? getting insulted? etc)? My friend says it's because John is comfortable with his situation. What I think about this requires loads of fic :)
  • John getting cockblocked by Franklin.
  • Was Franklin playing with Henry (in Henry's house) or was that still the aftereffects of the drug?
  • Sherlock is really bad at apologizing (I think I've read this in a fic :D)
  • Sherlock doesn't know Lestrade's first name but John does
  • I thought John should have realized that there was something in the coffee
  • Lestrade looks good in casual clothes
  • Martin Freeman in that scene in the lab was amazing!
  • Bluebell! I want to see a glow-in-dark rabbit
  • Mind Palace - I like the concept but I would have preferred it if they showed him navigating a palace/library/maze/something instead of what they showed
  • There were certain instances that Sherlock looked like a robot or a conductor during the mind palace scene
  • I thought Henry's therapist was in cahoots with Franklin
  • Idon't like how they portrayed the hound in the end. Was the point to make it look CGI'd?
  • John was the only one who hit the dog - John is a marksman
  • Not good? I love that they keep on using this.
  • Sherlock doesn't understand sentiment

I want lots of werewolf fic after this episode :).

earlier with fellow fans. Longer reaction post to follow but I just wanted to say that this movie was very bromantic (though I still think the BBC version is more slashy :)). We had the following couples:
  • Holmes and Watson, of course - “Are you happy?”
  • Mycroft and Carruthers (the butler)
  • Moriarty and Moran
Also, I want BBC Sherlock and John to dance together too!

Will be posting entries from tumblr and will try to date them correctly. Mostly about Sherlock.

I wish I had started watching The Sing-off season 3 earlier as I would have added this to my Yuletide nominations and requests.

Started watching The Sing-Off not because of them though, but because of the YellowJackets from the University of Rochester. They did a remake of Taylor Swift's video You Belong To Me but since they're an all-male group, instead of girl wants boy, it became boy wants boy and it's glorious! Will do another post about that.

But going back to the Aires, these are my favorites:

1. This is pre-Sing-off. According to the description on the video: The Dartmouth Aires sing "All the Above" by Maino ft. T-Pain at Winter Whingding 2010. Soloists are Michael "Nemo" Odokara-Okigbo and Henry "Tyco" Luehrman.

2. Sing-off performance 5: Club Can't Handle Me by Flo Rida. Ignore the description. I don't think the uploader likes the Aires. 

First two have some similarities, including the soloists. I could listen to these two over and over and over again.

3. Sing-off performance 6: Queen medley which is amazing! Again, ignore the description :).

I have loved all their performances so far and hope they win! The chemistry and group dynamics between them is also amazing to see. Makes me want to be an Aire too, even though I'm entirely the wrong gender!
dsidhe: (yuletide)
I'm so happy you're writing in at least one of the fandoms I've nominated! Thank you so much for signing up. These are pretty rare fandoms and I'll be very very happy with a fic in any of these.

Please see my previous Yuletide letter here for more information about some of my general likes and dislikes.

Do Começo ao Fim | From Beginning to End (2009)
Thomás / Francisco

You can write me anything about these two and I'll be happy. I would love anything from scenes set during their childhood to a future fic. You can keep it light (as the movie doesn't really tackle the ramifications of sibling incest) or make it darker (and more realistic, tackling sibling incest and how it affects the others around them). Do they ever come out to Thomas' father? Do they ever come out to their friends? Or maybe they decide to migrate to some other country where they can pretend they're not brothers? Or something when they were kids. How worried was Pedro about the relationship between the two? How worried was Julieta? Or just more fluffy scenes set when they were younger :). Or write more about how they got into a relationship with each other. What was Thomás thinking? Francisco? G to NC-17, your choice. Though, if you write about their childhood, please keep it G-rated :).

Before Supernatural and Numb3rs, incest was one of my squicks. But, fanfic has a way of changing your mind. So when I heard there would be a mainstream (though not American or British) movie with incest as the theme, I became very interested. I saw the stills from the movie as well as the trailer before it was released. I wanted to see how they would tackle the thorny issue on incest. The movie didn't quite deliver on that but I loved the first part (with Thomás and Francisco's childhood). As an escapist movie, this works as it has a happy ending. As someone who generally wants films that are realistic though, this didn't work. However, don't feel pressured to make a fic that deals with the issues inherent in an incestuous relationship. A happy, escapist fic would also be fine with me. 

Wiki page here and IMDB page here.

Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros | The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros (2005)

I would prefer to read future fic. Do Maxi and Victor end up together despite what Victor did? If they do, how are they able to deal with it? If not, is Maxi happy (I hope the answer is yes :))? Is Victor? While watching the first part of the movie, I thought Maxi and Victor would end up together in the future but Victor's actions made it impossible for me to think that their relationship would end up happily. If you're able to figure out how to do this, I will love you forever :). But, this isn't required and I'd be happy however the story takes you. Reading even one fic set in this movie would make me ecstatic :). 

Though I prefer future-fic, if that doesn't inspire you, please don't fret :). I'll also be happy with a fic set before the movie (why are Maxi's relatives fine with him the way he is given that Pinoy men in their situation are usually macho and homophobic?) or set during the movie (more scenes with Maxi interacting with the other characters would also be nice).
Any rating from G to NC-17 is fine. No preferences here.

I don't generally watch Pinoy movies as they aren't really my type. But I made it a point to watch this when it aired as it tackled homosexuality in a non-exploitative way. I had issues with the writing (there were certain areas that could have used a heavier red pen) and the way it was shot, but I did enjoy the story and the acting, especially by the actor who played Maxi, was really good. If you haven't seen this yet, I hope you try to watch it even if you're writing fic for the other two movies instead. 

Wiki page here and IMDB page here.

Rag Tag (2006) 

I really would love anything in this fandom. Anywhere from pre-movie to during the movie to post-movie would be fine. Some ideas (or questions) though: Set pre-movie or in the earlier parts of the movie: How did Raymond and Tagbo end up friends? How'd Raymond get his nickname? What was Raymond's home life like before he was sent away? How did both deal with living away from each other? I would also love to read future fic. Did Tagbo's parents ever accept their relationship? How is their relationship with Olivia (who's an amazing woman)? Is Raymond able to find legal work? What are the myriad of difficulties with being POCs in London, as well as POCs from different backgrounds in a same-sex relationship? How do they handle these difficulties?

Any rating from G to NC-17 is fine.

I loved this movie as this dealt with POCs and homosexuality and still had a happy ending. It's obviously a low-budget movie and there were some scenes that made me cringe with regards to the acting but I enjoyed it and still watch it (especially the ending) again especially when I need a pick-me-up.

Wiki page here and IMDB page here.

I'll try to add more to this as time permits. I don't think any of these are available online for free but they are available through various sources :). 

Thank you again, dear yuletide writer, for picking one of my fandoms. I hope you enjoy Yuletide :).

 Only started watching S10 recently as I was bored with AI. I'm not a fan of country, but I have to say, the contestant I enjoy watching the most is Scotty. Go figure. I like Haley too. I kind of like James Durbin, but he reminds me of Adam Lambert and I prefer Adam over him.

This is the fic I wrote for Yuletide: http://archiveofourown.org/works/142327. This is my first het fic which surprised the heck out of me :). I feel like writing more Daddy-Long-Legs fic but I want to write some other fic first. Hopefully I do get to finish one fic this year other than a Yuletide fic :).
dsidhe: (yuletide magic)
Just finished reading my gift: http://archiveofourown.org/works/137876. I love love love it! It's amazing and perfect and everything I didn't know I wanted!

I love Yuletide!
