1) I really like Peter and Bev as a couple. Peter especially has matured a ton over the series and when Bev came to rescue him at the end of book 5, I was just mentally fist pumping all YES, GO BEV RESCUE YOUR MAN and in this one they're just such a good couple? They work well together, they check in with each other, they're such a great team, I love it.

2) Peter has...so many feelings about Nightingale. So many.

3) Nightingale at the very end of book 6. I love how he's slowly been drawn not just into the 21st century but also back into a more youthful persona. Or maybe Peter just knows him better now so he can tell when Nightingale's being cheeky. But I love him watching the rugby in a polo shirt (so casual!!) and telling Peter about his dumb teen shenanigans at school.

4) NIGHTINGALE HAS A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT PETER!??? I mean the watch was bad enough, even if it came off as "Nightingale has a large amount of feelings and no idea about appropriate colleague gift giving standards, and overdid it."
But then the car at the end of book 6? LIKE. GUYS.

4.5) Everyone knows Peter as "the starling", how cute is that. He's Nightingale's little bird.

5) We keep being reminded that Peter is an unusually quick study when it comes to learning magic. I love absurdly powerful characters and as he's grown into his skills and become a much more active agent, I've liked the books more and more.

6) So, can we talk about my dream future fic where Peter's caught some variety of slow aging from Bev, and Nightingale is hovering somewhere in a fit early 40s, and Bev is gorgeous and mature with a healthy flow and more natural stream banks and they all have a crazy loving OT3 going with lots of magic sex and raising children.
Peter, Guleed, and Caroline are teaching at the newly recreated magic school in London (Molly is Matron, Abigail is off at Uni getting a doctorate). Bev isn't officially a professor but she does special guest lectures on genius loci and environmental sciences.

7) The only thing I didn't like (or get), why was Caroline poking around the County Guard offices last book? She seemed a bit deus ex machina in this book, conveniently showing up to move the plot along. Did her mother already know about the 3rd principia in the last book? Was this a retcon?

8) I did like the expansion of the magical world in this book, a lot. Like, of course there's some old families who've just passed the craft down. Of course there's a women's tradition, that the men rejected, and of course they didn't abandon it, just flipped them the bird and kept inventing crucial magic. It's a bit stereotypical to have women's ~~healing magic~~, but Lady Helen was such a Rich Old Hippie that it fit right in with her attitude (i.e. I didn't mind it at all in the book, just, noting for posterity). The American Old Boy's Club with its Newtonian English roots fits right in too. There's a whole world out there just magicking away! It's great!

Hello! Thank you so much for signing up to write/draw something for the Yuri on Ice Rare pairs fest, I'm excited to see what you come up with!

I am OK with anything G to explicit.

I love fun casual sex, cute aus (especially in art), friendship fic, angst or h/c as long as there's a happy ending, and risk aware consensual kink (restraints/bondage, D/s, edging, etc). Also especially for art (but also fic!) boys in lingerie always make me happy. Sex pollen and a/b/o are good as long as they aren't upsetting for the characters involved (e.g., please don't sex pollen a character and have traumatized by the experience). I'm OK with gender-bends or cisswap but it's not my favorite thing in this fandom, since I find the show's treatment of gender and gender expression really interesting in its own context like Yuri P being compared to a prima ballerina and Yuuri K's/Viktor's bi-gendered Eros costume.

Some pairing specific thoughts -

For Yuuri & Yuuko, I keep thinking about Yuuri at her wedding and what that fic might be like (he would be so happy for her! And might get drunk!) Or maybe the last time he saw her before he left for the US...or right after she had the kids, or even a little fic about when they were kids just learning to skate.

Christophe/anyone - I love Christophe's over the top sexy vibe. him/anyone casual sex seems both likely and fun. For Christophe/Yuuri/Viktor I love the headcanon that Christophe used to hook up with Viktor and would love to hook up with the both of them now.

Christophe/Phitchit - I like the idea that they're in a relationship that just never made it into the show, or Phitchit has a crush on Chris :3

Phichit/Yuuri - I'd rather this be pre-series or recognize Yuuri's in an open relationship with Viktor, but in any case it seems like in the show Phichit is one of the only characters Yuuri feels close to. Certainly in the little flashback they seem like close friends! So any fic based on their close friendship would be great.

Yuuri & Yuri - There's so much complexity in their relationship! Yuri's looking up to Yuuri, maybe even a crush on him?

Mila/Sara - they deserve to have some fun with each other.

I hope you have fun with this exchange, I look forward to your work! I can answer questions via the rare pairs mods, or drop me an Anonymous ask on tumblr under this username.

Dear Yuletide Author,
 
First of all thank you so much for offering to write! This is my first time signing up for Yuletide and I am super excited for anything and everything that might result. I'm including a bunch of likes/dislikes and some vague prompts, but these are all suggestions and I just hope you have fun with it!
 
Squee and favorites: I like a lot of things! I like tropes but I love trope subversions even more. I like gen friendship fic. I like pining and UST as long as it's resolved in the end. I like duos becoming threesomes and and poly Vs becoming poly triangles. I love characters loving each others competence. I like sexual exploration and Risk Aware Consensual Kink. And I love me a good au.
 
Squicks and dislikes:  Please absolutely no incest, scat, bloodplay, or daddy kink. Other dislikes are unhappy endings, hurt no comfort, abuse  between the main pairing characters, non-con, character death, humiliation as a D/s thing.

For the OT3s below, please no infidelity fic - negotiated poly/open relationships only

 
The Fire's Stone - Tanya Huff
Darvish, Chandra, Aaron
 
You can treat these character requests as 'any' not 'all'. I would love any post-book tag that explores this relationship, it's such a tantalizing set up with a lot of open questions! 
I would love to see Darvish and Aaron exploring their sexual relationship, how Aaron deals with his feelings and the two of them figuring out what they like together. 
I know Chandra is often characterized as ace. I'm fine with that but I personally headcanon her as curious but not interested *yet*, especially since she's younger than the boys (uh... I think? I'll be honest I didn't re-read the book before writting this) - but further down the line, especially with protection against pregnancy, I think she'd get involved physically in their relationship either watching Darvish and Aaron or joining in. I would be super into the fic where she joins one or both of them in bed for the first time.
I would also love a not explicit/gen fic just exploring their convenient domestic arrangement, how they use it to their respective advantages or what their countries think.
 
The Shannara Chronicles (TV)
Eretria, Amberle
 
Honestly I would really love some smut for this pairing but if that's not what you're into, anything exploring their tentative friendship or learning to trust each other would hit my buttons. I love the scene in S1E7 in the burried school where Eretria starts to open up a little(Confession, as of writing this I've only watched through S1E7 but don't worry about spoilers!) .
If you do want to write some smut, the bath scene in S1E6 is a good example of what I love in this pairing. Seductive confident woman pulls curious but tight laced woman out of her shell. Tender explorations, gentle teaching, everyone is very wet.
 
The Queen's Thief
Eugenides (Queen's Thief) Costis (Queen's Thief) Attolia (Queen's Thief)
 
I ship Gen/Costis/Attolia but if you don't, just the canonical Gen/Attolia is fine with me (with or without Costis as a character in the fic) or something gen!
I love Costis's awe and devotion toward both of them. I love Gen's helplessness in the face of his destiny and Irene's iron grip on her country. I don't have any prompts in mind but I may add some later. I promse I am just here for anything you're excited to write for these characters.

This DW account seems empty because I used to be at [personal profile] ninja_orange.
