evewithanapple: a woman of genius | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (stage | i want that story of yore)

Given the recent shenanigans on LJ with regards to privacy, I thought it might be a good idea to put more use into this account. From now on, non-fic entries will be friends-only; comment to be added.
evewithanapple: evelyn caranahan, extremely drunk | <lj user="inthe_sunshine"</lj> (mummy | here's how they replied)
Hi trick-or-treater! Thank you for writing/drawing for me. In general, my taste in fiction runs "spooky but not too sad;" that is to say, I like horror, but I'm not a huge fan of downer endings or crapsack universes with no bright side to them. I don't mind sad stuff, but I do like to have it leavened a bit with caring and compassion.

As far as kinks/DNWs are concerned: I'd be happy to recieve stuff rated R and above, so that's not a concern. I love, love, love hurt/comfort and emotional intimacy (i.e. characters spilling their guts to each other, especially if they're usually the more stoic type) so that would be a major plus! I'd say my major squicks are animal death (that is, "onscreen" animal death - if it's just referenced offscreen, it's fine) incest, noncon, and permanent character death. I'd also prefer nothing sexual involving underaged characters, although I don't think that'll come up with any of my requests. I'm also not a big fan of AUs- canon divergence is cool, I'm just not big on coffeeshop-type stuff.

The Exorcist
Tomas Ortega, Marcus Keane, Katherine Rance

First of all: I am ALL THE WAY ON BOARD with Tomas/Marcus. Casefic? Smut? Weird skirting around their feelings while trying to cover it with jokes? Emotionally explosive confessions following a harrowing exorcism? GIMME. I love their mentor/mentee dynamic, and the fact that (as Ben Daniels has said in interviews) Tomas helps Marcus be more "human" than he's allowed himself to be in a long time. I also love that they both really, really want to do right by God, but their definitions of "doing right" come from different places - Tomas is all about social/community service and outreach, but Marcus is such a lone wolf. There's a lot of friction there, but there's also a ton of trust and caring and intimacy (the COLLAR scene, my word) and it's such a layered dynamic to play with.

Second: I requested Kat because one of the things I would have liked to see in season one that we didn't get is a scene of Marcus and Kat connecting - this show is so steeped in Catholicism, and they're the only canon LGBT characters, but we don't really see that explored. Marcus obviously doesn't give that much of a fuck, and we don't know much about Kat's personal life besides her burgeoning relationship with Julia. How do they each feel about their relationship with God? With the church and the Vatican and the Pope? What would they say to each other? We get the briefest glimpse of their dynamic, when Marcus tells Kat he'd never hurt her sister, but that's about it. We also see that Kat is fully prepared to go to extreme lengths to protect her loved ones (she smashed her own knee!) in a way that mirrors how far Marcus is willing to go in an exorcism. So what would they talk about? How would they work together? I'd prefer nothing romantic, but I'd love to see them bond.

Harlots (TV)

Amelia Scanwell, Violet Cross

This is the only canon that I only requested "treat" for, because I honestly can't think of any "trick" plots that could apply. What does apply is basically any expansion on what we see of them in canon - their relationship is very new, and they come from such different worlds, I'm curious to see where it could go. What would Violet think of Amelia's plan to open what's basically a halfway house for harlots? For that matter, how does Violet see her own profession, and how would she explain that to Amelia? How does Amelia herself view their relationship in the context of her upbringing and her faith, and how does she reconcile that? Or you could just write 300 words of them cuddling; that would also be fine!

The Black Tapes Podcast
Alex Reagan, Richard Strand

This is another dynamic where I love the push-pull aspect - Alex is always challenging Strand and pushing him to be more open than he's been in a long time, and Strand wants to deny the supernatural for the sake of his own sanity, but he also really seems to enjoy engaging with Alex when she challenges him. So - casefic? Late-night recording sessions with lots of banter? An investigation that lands them in more trouble than they were prepared for? Something silly and cracky, like Alex finally getting that dog and Strand being baffled by it? Anything!

Lynes and Mathey Series - Amy Griswold & Melissa Scott  
Ned Mathey, Julian Lynes

Casefic is also a big possibility with this one! Basically I love these books and I'd love to get more of the characters and their world in any form I can. Maybe they're out on a case on Halloween and things get spooky? Maybe an exploration of what ghosts look like in this universe, and how that might impact their work? (A victim contacting them from beyond the grave, for instance.) Or just something domestic or smutty or hurt/comfort-y.
evewithanapple: joo-ran takes a cherry from yeon-duk | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (silenced | burning up all of our choices)
General likes: fluff, hurt/comfort (emphasis on the comfort), smut, women loving and supporting each other, domesticity, established relationships, emotional vulnerability, characters learning to trust/open up, partnership
General DNWs: major character death, noncon/dubcon, A/B/O, modern AUs (if it's a fantasy/historical fiction fandom), animal death, incest, angst, darkfic

Harlots (TV)
Violet Cross/Amelia Scanwell

So we have the foundations of the relationship in-show (and we're getting a second season to see it progress, yay!) but as far as fanfic goes, the possibilties are still wide open. Violet and Amelia spend a day at the market? Violet and Amelia talk about God? Violet and Amelia spend a lazy afternoon in bed together? Anything goes!

The Black Tapes Podcast
Alex Reagan/Amelia Chenkova

I'll be honest, I kind of started shipping this as a joke, and then it became . . . not a joke. I'd love to see an expansion of their relationship as it stands in canon- how long have they known each other? How much do they trust each other? How much do they have in common, and what are their differences? I'd especially love an expansion of Amalia's arc in s2, since it got cut off so abruptly- was she under demonic influence, or was Alex imagining things? If Alex was wrong, how do they work their way back from that? And if she was right, what does she do about it?

The Raven and the Reindeer - T. Kingfisher


This book is just so DELIGHTFUL, and I'd be delighted with just about anything regarding these two. Mutual pining during the journey? The two of them settling down together after the end of the book? Their trip to the coast? Anything!

Six of Crows Series - Leigh Bardugo
Inej Ghafa/Nina Zenik

This is another one where I don't have any real specific prompts, I'd just like to read more about them. We know from canon that they're good friends and they trust each other, but they don't have a ton of one-on-one scenes. So- how did they get to know each other? Get to the level of trust we see in SoC/CK? What have they confided in each other? How far would they go for each other?
evewithanapple: the dag and capable carry cheedo | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (max | we are the maids)
Harlots (TV)
Amelia Scanwell, Violet Cross

This is a very new relationship, and obviously they have a lot of stuff to work through, especially Amelia- anything to do with them dealing with the various differences in their lives, the ways they learn to relate to each other, and the progression of Amelia's feelings about Violet (and her sexuality in general) would make me very happy.

Strange Empire
Rebecca Blithely, Kat Loving, Group: Kat Loving & Isabelle Slotter & Rebecca Blithely

I love Kat and Rebecca's relationship in canon- these two people who don't quite fit, but bring out the best in each other and just click almost immediately. So anything about them being mutually supportive, learning about each other, defending each other from people who don't get it, etc. I also really love the uneasy alliance between the three women, who recognize that they need each other but don't exactly trust each other. So anything along those lines would be great.

The Raven and the Reindeer - T. Kingfisher  
Group: Gerta & Janna (The Raven and the Reindeer) Janna (The Raven and the Reindeer) Gerta (The Raven and the Reindeer)

This is such a sweet little story and a great relationship - I'd love to see anything about their lives after the book, whether they go off together to see the sea or settle down in Gerta's grandmother's house and make a life there. Or something in-between! Who knows.

The Silenced (2015)
Yeon-duk (The Silenced) Joo-ran (The Silenced)

This movie combines so many of my favourite storytelling elements- gothic boarding school! Girl superheroes! Extremely homoerotic relationships between girls!- so any of those aspects would be a good thing to focus on. I'm also always up for fix-it fic where Yeok-duk and Joo-ran both survive and go on to fuck shit up for the Japanese colonists, or just run around in the woods together eating berries and pushing each other into lakes.
evewithanapple: one girl looks hungrily at another | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (gravel | bad girls get you down)
General likes: fluff, hurt/comfort (emphasis on the comfort), smut, women loving and supporting each other, domesticity, established relationships

General DNWs: major character death, noncon/dubcon, A/B/O, modern AUs, animal death, incest, angst, darkfic

Six of Crows Series - Leigh Bardugo

Relationship: Nina Zenik/Matthias Helvar Relationship: Nina Zenik/Inej Ghafa/Matthias Helvar Relationship: Nina Zenik/Inej Ghafa

My position on this series is both "I love the canon pairings" and "needs more femslash!" So take that in whatever direction you wish- canon-based Nina/Matthias (though I'd prefer not to read post-CK fic that sticks to canon, because I'm still pretending that ending never happened), Nina/Inej in whatever capacity you see fit (before, during, or after the heist) or an OT3 where Inej and Matthias are slightly baffled by each other, but they both love Nina, so it all works out.

The Raven and the Reindeer - T. Kingfisher
Relationship: Gerta (The Raven and the Reindeer)/Janna (The Raven and the Reindeer)

I've been calling this book "the lesbian Paper Bag Princess I never knew I wanted." I'd love anything about Greta and Janna post-canon- what they do, where they go (to the ocean?) how they settle into life together, what Gran thinks of the whole thing. 

The Penumbra Podcast
Relationship: Juno Steel/Peter Nureyev

So I actually nominated this before I even finished the first season, because I had the feeling I'd want to request it once I was done. And . . . I did and I do! Like most of the fandoms on this list, my request is pretty much "anything goes," but I'd especially like casefic, hurt/comfort, or general shippy fic. 

Lynes and Mathey Series - Amy Griswold & Melissa Scott
Relationship: Julian Lynes/Ned Mathey

This series hits so many sweet spots for me (gay Victorian magic detectives!) that I'd be pleased with pretty much any extension of canon. Casefic! Domesticity! Smut! An alternate universe where these two mostly Julian develop the ability to actually talk about their feelings in a productive manner! Anything!
evewithanapple: an upside-down cross on a test pattern | <lj user="timepunching"</lj> (tapes | save a little light)
So I put up a post intending to make a detailed letter and realized that I don't really have detailed requests- I'm very broad in my vidding tastes, so really anything you choose to do for these fandoms would be fine and good. If you'd like more specifics, I'm always up for shippy vids, vids that focus on the female characters and their journeys/arcs, spooky stuff, mashups (like editing a horror movie into a romcom) and general plot/character vids. Honestly, I'll be thrilled to get any vids for any of my listed fandoms- I'm just really excited to be participating, and I'm sure I'll love whatever you come up with!
evewithanapple: christina smiles at ebba | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (king | like a heel to the head)
Thank you for writing for me!

As far as likes and dislikes are concerned, I'm relatively easy to please- I'm not a fan of darkfic or unhappy endings, and I love hurt/comfort, fluff, smut, and established/affectionate relationships. I read het, slash, and femslash (although given my requests this year, slash is kind of removed from the equation since there's only two guys here) and will happily read any rating from G to R. My only hard DNWs are animal harm, incest, sexual assault, and major character death. 


The Handmaiden

Sook-hee, Lady Hideko

Wow, this movie was a wild ride! I'd been vaguely familiar with the plot of Fingersmith, but even knowing the twists ahead of time, I don't think I was quite prepared for this movie. (If nothing else, it got me to sit and pay rapt attention for two and a half hours, which is no mean feat.) I loved how much the movie's plot hinged on the two women coming to understand and trust each other (I actually feel that Park Chan-Wook improved on the plot by removing some of the betrayal twists, because it strengthened the central relationship.) I love that Sook-hee, for all that she's a career criminal, is actually a very emotion-driven person with a strong moral compass. I love that Hideko was raised in this hideous environment, but still finds the strength to trick her way out. For fic, anything about their lives post-movie would be great. Or their lives during the movie, and what they're thinking and feeling while falling for each other. (Given the tone of the film, PWP would be entirely appropriate here! Especially PWP with feelings.) 

The Black Tapes Podcast
Alex Reagan, Richard Strand, Amalia Chenkova

As a childhood X-Phile, this podcast was basically made for me. I have some frustrations with it (we have so much backstory and interiority for characters like Nic and Strand and so little for Alex or Amalia or Coralee) but hey, that's what fic is for. Casefic would be AMAZING here, since the monster-of-the-week episodes were always my favourites. I ship both Alex/Strand and Alex/Amalia, so fic in either direction would be great. I'd especially like fic that looks at how Alex is dealing with all the crazy shit that's going on in her life since she started the podcast. Or the three of them could go on an OT3 roadtrip! (Note: I haven't listened to TANIS, so any references to that will go right over my head.)

The Conjuring (movies)
Ed Warren, Lorraine Warren

Speaking of monster-of-the-week! I know the IRL Warrens were kind of terrible people (or at the very least, deeply deluded about what they did for a living) but the fictional Warrens are so incredibly charming and in love. I adore how supportive they are of each other, how you can tell they've been a couple forever and have little in-jokes and stories but still have a sense of fun about their relationship. Anything about them would be great- slice-of-life stuff, casefic (either pulled from the existing Warren casefiles, or just made up out of whole cloth) backstory showing how they met, etc. 
evewithanapple: hideko and sook-hee circle each other | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (hand | raise me to your lips)
Likes: strong female relationships (platonic or romantic), bright-eyed revolutionaries, girls coming into their own, found families, domesticity, people with strong convictions, nerdy historical/literary references, and babies.

sexual violence, animal/pet death, abusive relationships, A/B/O

Historical RPF

Juana Ines de la Cruz/Original Female Character Charity Bryant/Sylvia Drake

So I listed "original female character" for Juana because there's really not much information about her female friends in the historical record- we know she was supported by the wife of the Viceroy of New Spain and that she wrote her romantic poetry (romantic enough to pop a few monocles, anyway) but we don't have any of their letters, or even the Vicerine's name. So you can really take this prompt in any direction you want- Juana was obviously a fiercely intelligent, passionate person, so how would that translate to her relationship with another woman? What common ground would they find? How would they inspire each other?

For Charity and Sylvia, all I really want is curtainfic- one of the sweetest things about their story is how ordinary and domestic their life together was, so anything that involves them going about their day, interacting with each other/their apprentices/their wide surrogate family (like any of the various Charities or Sylvias running around Weybridge (maybe the first time they learned that someone had named their daughter after them?) Just anything about their lives together and how they supported each other through 40+ years of marriage.

Gravel To Tempo - Hayley Kiyoko (Music video)
Hayley (Gravel to Tempo)/Blake (Gravel to Tempo)

The great thing about Hayley's music videos is how much information you can glean from just the facial expressions and physical movement, and how much is still left to interpretation. That said, this expression:

-only has one interpretation for me; she's thirsty! So anything about the progression of their relationship, what Blake thinks of Hayley, what Hayley thinks of Blake (is she crushing specifically on her? Or does she just envy the whole in-crowd and their feelings for each other develop after the fact?) You could also take it to a completely different genre if you wanted- that dance with the burning pictures, was that symbolic or actual witchcraft? 

The Black Tapes Podcast  
Amalia Chenkova/Alex Reagan

I love how smart and driven both women are in pursuit of answers, even when it brings them into danger (don't visit haunted monasteries/go into the murder house!) and following that line of thinking, I feel like a relationship between them could be fascinatingly explosive. Do either of them have an "off" switch? Is there a point at which one will draw a line in the sand, either for the sake of journalistic ethics or personal safety? And if one was actually put into harm's way, how would the other handle it?

Strange Empire (TV)  
Rebecca Blithely/Kat Loving Rebecca Blithely/Kat Loving/Isabelle Slotter

So I've shipped Kat/Rebecca more or less from the word "go" when they had that first conversation about Rebecca's history and education and Kat gave her that gun. I love how much they implicitly trust and respect each other, how they seem to have an innate understanding of how the wider world treats them unfairly (which is, after all, kind of a thesis statement for the whole show) and just how well they work together in general. Even when they spend a few episodes apart, they still fall into that pattern of silent communication when shit needs to get done. 

. . . and then Isabelle entered the picture! So obviously Isabelle/Kat offers a wealth of possibilities, some more comedic than others (Isabelle Slotter-Loving: Awkward Stepmom?) but I'd feel bad leaving Rebecca out of the picture, and they did all work together in the finale. I think in some ways, all three compliment each other; Isabelle is ruthlessly pragmatic but also superstitious, Rebecca is booksmart and hard-headed when it comes to the supernatural but also very emotional, and Kat is the one who best understands how to navigate between feelings and facts. So I'd like to see what that dynamic looks like in practice- how do the three of them survive together? How do they manage Janestown, and what does their family dynamic look like?

Dear Yuletide Writer,


First and most importantly, thank you for volunteering to write fic for me! Yuletide is always a fun time of year for me, because my fandoms are perpetually tiny, so this is when I get to celebrate them. 

In general, I like fic with strong female relationships (platonic or romantic), bright-eyed revolutionaries, girls coming into their own, found families, domesticity, people with strong convictions, nerdy historical/literary references, and babies. My dislikes are a bit broader- I'm not a huge fan of graphic violence (especially sexual violence) animal/pet death, abusive relationships, female character bashing, or A/B/O.

16th & 17th Century CE RPF
Christina of Sweden, Ebba Sparre

My main frame of reference for Christina's reign is Michel Bouchard's The Girl King and the Royal Diaries book about Christina that I read when I was a kid, so don't worry too much about the fussy accuracy details- if you fudge a date or have someone firing an anachronistic pistol, I either won't notice or won't care.

What I do care about is Christina and Ebba- how their relationship functioned, what they saw in each other, what roles they played (versus what roles they were expected to play.) What was their relationship built on? Shared interests? Rebellion? What was the dynamic? Was it a queen/knight thing, or was Christina the more protective one? What kinds of letters did they write to each other after Christina left Sweden? Was Ebba aware of her plans to abdicate? Etc, etc, etc.

Strange Empire
Kat Loving, Rebecca Blithely, Robin Loving, Mary Collacut

I love Kat and Rebecca's relationship in canon- these two people who don't quite fit, but bring out the best in each other and just click almost immediately. So anything about them being mutually supportive, learning about each other, defending each other from people who don't get it, etc.

Robin and Mary- from Robin's perspective, I'd love to read anything about her interacting with her powers and how she feels about them. When did they start? Did she inherit them? If she did, was her mother/grandmother/other female relative around to explain what was going on, or did she have to figure it out for herself? She and Kelly are obviously both practiced carnival hucksters (since we see Kelly dealing tarot cards) but Robin seems to be the only one with a genuine gift. Does she use it when they're hustling? What kinds of ghosts has she seen? I'd also love to read about her relationship with Mary, since these two girls from different circumstances seem to have become close friends almost immediately upon meeting. What kinds of things did they confide in each other? Did Robin help Mary out with the baby? Do they talk about their pasts at all? (If you want to write it as a Baby's First Girlfriend fic, no objections here!)

The Tudors (TV)
Katherine Howard, Joan Bulmer

Ah, so this show and I have a . . . complicated relationship, but I was fascinated by the glimpses we got of Katherine and Joan's relationship. They were close friends/girlfriends as kids, but then they were both suddenly catapulted to an environment that neither one had any kind of preparation for. Joan seems to be the wilier one of the two- she essentially blackmailed her way into Katherine's household, after all- but she was also deeply loyal, and did what Katherine asked her to even when she knew that it was incredibly dangerous and might end up taking her down along with Katherine and Culpepper. What motivated her? How did Katherine feel about having her around? How did their past complicate things? We saw Joan at Katherine's execution- she must have chosen to go. Why? What was she feeling?

Kat Loving, Rebecca Blithely

Shipping: I absolutely ship Kat/Rebecca, so if that's where you want to go with the fic, you have two thumbs up from me! Other than that, I don't really have any ships for either of them, but I don't mind if you include any of the canon pairings (Kat/Caleb, Rebecca/Morgan, etc.)

Other than shipping in a romantic sense, I just really adore their relationship and how they relate to each other- how Kat affords Rebecca more respect than probably anyone else in her life, and how Rebecca admires Kat. I love that they keep saving each other, whether it's Kat riding up to save Rebecca from the coachman or Rebecca buying Kat and her girls out from the brothel. (Speaking of- I didn't include them in my requests, but if you want to do found family stuff with Kat, Rebecca, and the kids, I'd be totally on board with that.) Basically anything about their relationship would be fine by me.

Turner Series - Courtney Milan
Jessica Farleigh

Shipping: any kind of Jessica/Mark story would be MORE than okay.

Other: Unclaimed is my favourite book in the Turner series, and it's largely because of Jessica- I love that she starts out almost as a brooding antihero with a dark past, and her storyline is learning to let herself trust and love and be loved. Anything about her life after the book ends would be great- how she adjusts to being married, how she relates to her sisters-in-law, how she relates to Mark, whether or not they start a family (the issue was raised in the book, so- adopted or biological, it doesn't matter) or just her life in general, no that she longer has to worry about her livelihood or safety.

The Musketeers
Fleur Baudin

Shipping: I don't have any specific canon ships for her. The one thing I'd prefer is that she not be written in a het relationship. (A femslash relationship is great.)

Other: Fleur is probably one of my favourite one-off characters in any show, ever. I love how idealistic and passionate she is, and I love that she ended up being allowed to continue her education. I also love how much she clearly values her relationships with the women in her life. For fic, any exploration of her education, what she wants to do with her life, or her female friendships would be fantastic.

Black Beauty

The Kindness of Men (Ginger, G) I haven't read Black Beauty in years, and would never have thought to go looking for fic for it, but I'm glad I clicked on this one. It's an alternate ending for Ginger, and warms my rescue-pet-owning heart.

Brothers Sinister Series

The Christmas Box (Genevieve/Amanda, E) MY PRESENT. In which Genevieve and Amanda explore the (sexy) joys of modernity.


someday we won't remember this (Lafontaine/Perry, T) Lafontaine and JP get their fake date on to make Perry jealous. It's exactly as romcom as it sounds.

Silas University Student Handbook, Bestiary, and Survival Guide (Abridged) (Laura/Carmilla, G) Unsurprisingly, there are a few unusual caveats in the Silas student handbook. Cute and funny.

Elizabethan and Jacobean Theatre & Literature RPF

Sad Stories of the Death of Kings (Shakespeare and Marlowe, G) Because it's not Yuletide without Shakespeare and Marlowe: the two playwrights experiment with genre. I feel like somewhere in the afterlife, Derek Jarman is tenting his fingers delightedly at this fic.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Bullets Are A Nuisance (Perry/Harry, T) The dialogue- which makes up most of the fic- is pitch-perfectly suited to canon, and I love the hypochondriac Harry/long-suffering Perry dynamic here.

(re)scheduling conflict resolution (Perry/Harry, Harry/Harmony, T) Once again, the dialogue is perfect, and the dynamic of Perry and Harmony trading off Harry while Harry splutters is deeply hilarious. 

Scarborough Fair

gather it all in a bunch of heather (OFC/OFC) Talking about the details of this one would spoil it, but it's beautiful and bittersweet.

True Detective

Little Cactus (Rust Cohle, Audrey Hart, T) OW OW OW. The Rust/Audrey dynamic is severely underexplored in canon, and this fic fills in the gap beautifully while staying true to both characters and following up on the themes of the show.
evewithanapple: sydney fox wearing glasses | <lj user="evewithanapple"</lj> (relic | a mind like a diamond)
Hello exchangee! First let me say that if we share any of the fandoms on my list, CHANCES ARE we have a few things in common; at the very least, we share a common love of these characters! A few other things I love, narratively, include FREEDOM, loving equal relationships, dudes who think their girlfriends hang the moon, femslash, baby idealists, idealism in general, and adventure! Obviously the ways in which these apply will vary depending on what fandom you're writing for, but they give a good basic overview of what my narrative priorities are.

In terms of stuff I don't like- "darkfic" basically covers it. I'd like to avoid things like rape/abuse/death if at all possible (obviously in canons like Hexslingers or The Killing these things have already happened, but I'd rather not read about them happening AGAIN) and kinkwise I'm pretty much vanilla. That said, I AM completely open to you writing a fic that would qualify for Night On Fuck Mountain, if the mood strikes you!
