Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for writing for me! I'm pretty easy to please, and I'm sure I'll love anything you write for me. The fandoms I've chosen are in desperate, desperate need of fic, and yours will get the ball rolling. I do have some likes and dislikes, though nothing too restrictive. Let's get the bad out of the way first.

Dislikes: Depictions and mentions of self-harm are triggering to me. I also don't like explicit sex scenes or smut--fade-to-black is fine. Depictions of violence are okay, as long as it doesn't devolve into torture porn.

Likes:  Gen! Fluff! Comedy! I like clever AUs, and witty dialogue. I like meta jokes and dark humor. I like strong characterization. My favorite stories are the kind you don't want to end because you love the characters so much. Don't get me wrong-- I enjoy shorter fics. Don't feel pressured to write a 50k word epic or something, because I adore a 1500 word one shot just as much as any novel length fic.

Onto fandoms. Everything I've chosen this year has a canon that is easy to catch up on. Fallout: Nuka Break is a web series on youtube based on the Fallout video games. Wonderella and Whomp! are both webcomics that have medium length archives and are gut bustingly hilarious. So if you get stuck with writer's block on the fandom we matched on, feel free to catch up on a different fandom instead!

Fallout: Nuka Break: I've been into this series since the first 15 minute fan film dropped. The Fallout games are some of my favorites. I sort of ship Ben/Scar in Nuka Break, which is weird because I'd never thought I'd have any ghoul-related ships. The things I like about Nuka Break are the things I like about Fallout: over the top humor, like the vault experiments. I like the post-apocalyptic atmsophere. For Nuka Break, I especially enjoyed Red's not-so-bright angry gangster chracterization. I like Ben's matter-of-factness, Scar's toughness, and Twig's hopefulness and his fruitless quest for Nuka Cola. This is a fandom I kicked myself for forgetting last year, so I'll be incredibly excited and grateful if you write this for me.

The Non-Adventures of Wonderella: Wonderella is a Wonder Woman parody that is both sharp and loving to it's source material. I enjoy the suprisingly natural sounding dialogue, I enjoy that nearly all the characters are women (and most are some sort of -ella). I love how Wonderella herself is lazy, a drunk, and has a temper, and somehow always wins. My favorite strip is definitely this one, for all the reasons listed above. Writing me a story in this fandom would be incredibly amazing!

Whomp!: I'm not going to lie to you. While I love and am passionate about the two fandoms listed above, and would gladly accept anything you wrote for them. Whomp! is truly the fandom of my heart. Which is weird, because it's a comic about a loser with crippling social awkwardness. Probably what I like most about Whomp is that it is immensely relatable to me, and at times feels like a documentary of my life. Ronnie's self-loathing, love of chicken nuggets, and struggles with writer's block are so similar to me and everything I like. My favorite strips are Self-Humiliation, The Making of Mediocrity, and Imperfect Strangers.

So there you have it, Author. If you want more information on me and my tastes, feel free to poke around my tumblr. Don't feel pressured, I'm sure anything you write will be spectacular!
