Dear Yuletide Santa,

Odds are that I don't know you, given that [livejournal.com profile] yuletide has now reached over 1200 participants (I think that's vaguely frightening--don't you?) but I do know that you are going to write a story for me, in one of four really obscure fandoms that I love, and thus you rock :)

The first thing I want to say is this--if the details I provided feel confining rather than inspiring, please don't hesitate to go in a direction that _does_ inspire you. Like the Pirates' Code from Pirates of the Caribbean, they're really more like guidelines. Sometimes the best story is one that you never could have expected.

For example, when I did [livejournal.com profile] yuletide last year, I threw out a pairing idea for Homicide: Life on the Street that was just sort of random ("Oh, there should totally be femslash with this pairing, why isn't there any?"), among a bunch of other loose suggestions. My Yuletide writer took that pairing and ran with it in a direction I wouldn't have thought of, and it was awesome. Give me a good story in any of these fandoms, and I'm going to love it.

I think I included about the right amount of specificity in my details this year, so at first I wasn't quite sure what to put in my Dear Santa letter. So I looked around at what other people were doing, and decided that I'd talk a little bit about what I love in fic in general and what I love about each of the specific fandoms I listed.
