I've been waiting for both to be assigned before doing this, so.

Dear [ profile] shackinup_sesa writer,

I pretty much got to specify everything I wanted in my sign-up, but in case you're looking for more, I'll see what I can do. Just . I love Sirius best, and I'd prefer Marauders-era, pre-graduation from Hogwarts, not too heavy on the war. I'm very very very into the wacky hijinks and especially the funny banter. I like to see Remus as the kind of person who while, yes, bookish and shy and whatnot is still in the end a Marauder and someone who Sirius would have a thing for, so you know, not a stick in the mud. I like James and Sirius friendship stuff. I like to see hints of who Peter will become, but I'd rather that not be the focus of the story or too heavy-handed. I'm looking for something on the happier end, but in truth, will like whatever serves the story best. I love Lily and, as I said, especially McGonagall. I think she'd be quite amusing dealing with the Marauders. I love the magic part of the whole universe and the pranks and all that. I'm only interested in Snape as the butt of the joke and not in exploring his softer side.

Mostly, though, as long as it's Remus/Sirius and it's set at least no later than the end of OotP, I'll be happy. Because hey, story! For me! eeep!

much love,


Dear [ profile] yuletide writer,

Mmmm...obscure. I truly love all the fandoms I chose, so whichever one matches your offer will be absolutely wonderful. Overall, I'm looking for a story that suits the fandom, either happy or not as needed. I'm very invested in the characters above all and I do appreciate the humor, even in the darker situations. I would prefer gen to porn in all cases, but do love the slash when it fits the story. So as not to bore the world (though I kind of love reading everyone's letters), click the cut for

Req #1: This is probably the one where I most care about happy because sad just doesn't seem to fit. I love the hetero life mate thing and the funny more than anything else.

Req #2: ANYTHING you write will make me happy. This is my no-matter-what, guaranteed-to-please fandom because I love all the characters and all the storylines and all the everything. The closer you can get to the style of the source text, the more impressed I will be, but I'm also into stuff that takes elements and makes them into something else. Be free, go where the aliens take you.

Req #3: I like all the characters, but I do want the main character more than anything else. I'm not so much into the slash here as all the pairings leave me a bit confused, but if you can pull it off, more power to you. Something plotty would be nice, but mostly I'd like it dry and British and amusing.

Req #4: I like the cops, I do, but what I like better are the politicians and what I like best is the street. The character I love best wasn't on the pull-down, but I would love a story about him. I don't really have any pre-conceived notion of what I want from this fandom, so anything will be interesting.

Anyway, no matter what you pick, I'm pretty pumped to get a story in all of these fandoms, so no worries. I'm sure it'll be excellent.

Today was a lovely day. Everyone was all chipper and enthusiastic. I mean, Work Crush asked me how my weekend was. That NEVER happens. I was so confused I didn't manage to actually answer like a normal person, but whatever.

Gingerbread lattes are back! This happened several days ago and I cheered at Starbucks like the wretch that I am, but I had one this morning and I'm sure this is what made the morning so awesome, so. Yes.

This Bill Simmons column mounting a defense of Terrell Owens is so the best thing I've ever read because even though I do believe that T.O. is crazy and an idiot and a jerk, it's nice to see all the other people who can be held accountable. Especially this:
3. White peopleIf Drew Bennett were pulling this crap, would you be this angry? It's like the old Chris Rock joke, "I haven't seen white people this angry since they canceled M*A*S*H." Maybe you white people need to look in the mirror and think about the real reason you hate Terrell Owens. Asalamalakum, my brother.

And I'm gonna go right ahead and use my M*A*S*H icon in honor of the anger of white people everywhere. Also 'cause I [heart] Alan Alda.

Now, CSPAN and I have a high-impact date with the TiVo that includes PTI, Rome, Smallville and maybe TWW. Mmmmmm...T.V.

This article about T.O. is hysterical.

Were you watching ESPN an hour ago? They had an offical burial for T.O. in Philadelphia, complete with a casket.

What a circus for a guy who needs to dump his agent and learn how to shut it.

An official burial? That's HILARIOUS.

Dude, T.O. may be a giant jackass, but Drew Rosenhaus killed his career with this bullshit. At least there's always going to be a team that's willing to gamble for T.O.'s talent.

I was ambivalent about Simmons's column if only because at times I felt he wasn't holding the accountable accountable as he seemed to be ridiculing the idea that the people/group in question were accountable.

Did you see slacktivist's column about TO? If you read that blog.

I don't think the gingerbread lattes are as good here as they are there! I went to Starbucks the other day (here in the land where Starbucks is truly a last resort!) just so I could get one. It was disappointing! Maybe it's because I'm spoiled with delicious coffee beverages here, and it's just not as special. I totally thought of you while I drank it, though, and that made me happy. :)
