Dear Yuletide writer,

so you've been assigned my request. First off, I want to thank you so much for the fic you're going to write! Whatever you choose, I will be satisfied with it, because these are all fandoms I love very much (of course, otherwise I wouldn't have picked them). So, thank you! ♥

Some preferences in fiction:
  • I am all about the ladies, and I like it when female characters do stuff, think their thinky thoughts and talk with each other! About all sorts of things!
  • I like stories that have a mixture of serious and humorous moments, though I also like stories that are mainly serious, maybe dramatic.
  • Character development is what I like best about my fiction. I don't mind if a story isn't purely about that, but I like when there's some hint of it along the way.
  • In fact, I very much like character conflict, if that's what you'd like to go for.
  • Plot is nice, but not necessary at all.
  • I like both things that fit into canon and speculative fic.
  • I'm not that partial to porn, except maybe for BotI. I'd gladly read BotI porn.
  • No character bashing or pairing bashing, please.

Hope those help! These aren't rules that are set in stone, just general pointers which I hope help you in your idea-forming process. As I said, absolutely anything you can come up with will be loved.

Now, on to the fandoms!

» Blade of the Immortal

I requested something involving Rin, Hyakurin and Dōa, because I love these three ladies to bits. If you could fit all three of them into your fic, that would be marvelous. If not, however, that is quite okay. Some other things I'd like to see are: interaction between Hyakurin and Dōa, because there has been hints at a possible dynamic between these two in canon, but it was never really elaborated on; so I'd really love to see that happen in fic. Some sort of interaction between Rin and either of them would also be lovely. I adore Rin, so anything that has her in it is insta-win. Shippy fic would also be welcome. I'm such a multishipper in this fandom that you can basically do no wrong! Really, what I mainly want is some ladycentric BotI fic, because there can never be too much of that.

» Kaze Hikaru

I kept it simple for this request, mainly because the relationship between Sei and Okita is, in fact, one of my favorite things about this manga. I love their serious moments, their wacky hijinks, Okita's mentor role and occasional trolling and Sei's admiration, hopeless teenage crush and wish to protect Okita; both their harmonious moments and their situations of conflict. For prompts: maybe a snapshot as they're on patrol? Maybe they come into conflict with one of the townspeople? Maybe Sei has to overcome another hurdle in her path to becoming a True Warrior? In fact, I'd really love if you could include something that explores gender identities, though that's really not a must.

» Otoyomegatari

Amira and Pariya! I'd really just love anything with them being themselves around each other. Maybe a scene of Amira teaching archery, or maybe they bake bread or work on embroidery and talk about their lives, their circumstances, and in what ways they fit into them. Something along those lines! I'm really not picky about this one.

» Hua Mulan

As I said in my request, I absolutely loved the scene Mulan and the Princess of Rouran had together. It was one of my favorite things about the movie. It was only too sad it was so short! So I'd like anything that expands upon that; especially something showing them working together on something. Thus this is the request where I say that a small plot would be lovely, though if you can't come up with one, any other scene would be great, too. Maybe Mulan pays the Emperor's palace a visit, or the other way around, and they get to talking?

I really hope these ideas and prompts help you some. :) They're meant for orientation in case you have no idea where to start, but if you have another idea entirely, by all means, write it! These are fandoms in which there is little I don't absolutely adore, and thus little to do wrong.
