Dear Yuletide writer,

Yuletide is upon us yet again. I love this time of year and I do hope you do too, dear writer, and that you aren't completely dismayed to have been assigned to write for me. It's my greatest wish that you'll have fun writing for me.

As for general fic likes, I'm easy to please really. I confess to be a bit of romantic as well as avid enjoyer of the racier sort of fanfic but I have an appreciation for most genres and writing styles. I'd rather want a writer being comfortable than bending backwards just to please me. Really, mostly I love a good piece of fanfiction. I suppose my defunct rec list might help you a bit and my likes on tumblr (why yes, I'm obsessed with figure skating and Glee).

I'm not easy to squick though I'd prefer it if all bloodplay is kept far away from me. I steer pretty much clear of gore and scat though those aren't true hard squicks like bloodplay is. I'm not keen on non-con (can read it under certain circumstances) and would prefer not to be tested with that in my gift fic. I don't really like kidfic (love it when kids are PoV characters but prefer not to read about the perils of parenthood and other such matters). Other than that, I don't think you need to worry much. If you like to make 100% sure that I'll be OK with what you are writing, you can go and ask [personal profile] sarka or [profile] vanessawolfie.

I wish you, dear Yuletide writer, all the best in your endeavors. I hope you have loads of fun writing a fic for me as I have a feeling whatever you'll come up with, will totally make my holidays.
Lots of love

Let us rejoice in the fact I'm not going to talk about work in this entry. Except if I had figured it out faster that I needed hot yoga to get some of the work-related tension out of my body.

I met up with [personal profile] write_light yesterday. He has been traveling around Iceland with his husband. I showed them around Reykjavík a bit (and Seltjarnarnes :D) and we had dinner. It may sound corny and weird but I love showing my foreign friends around my town. I wish it happened more often (hint: come for a visit - I'll show you around). Also it's always lovely to meet up with great people.

On few of the houses and fences in my neighborhood, there are murals and elaborate graffiti. I actually need to go around take pictures to show you because a lot of it is rather brilliant. But the newest addition to this unconventional gallery of art is a mural on the end house in the row of houses my house is situated in. You can see a picture of the mural here. It was painted this week and the artist started with the eyes and I saw the work at that stage and I knew right away of whom the portrait was. The grandparents of one of my best friends used to live in this house (her cousin owns the house now) and the portrait is of my friend's grandfather, one of the kindest and most loving men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. This is such a fitting tribute to him.

And then I wrote a rambly thing about celebrity relationships and RPF here on tumblr.

Dear Yuletide writer,

I can't believe it's time already for Yuletide. This is always such an exciting time. All I wish for you is that my requests and prompts will fill you with inspiration and make you eager to get down to writing.

Dear Yuletide writer,

'Tis the season again and I'm hoping that you aren't feeling any despair at the moment as I dearly wish you to feel inspired. I made some requests and below you might find further explaining why I'm such a cruel person.

Hello little Yule goat!

It's my sincere wish that my prompts are inspiring to you and that they aren't causing you to *headdesk* or anything. However, if my prompts may indirectly caused any serious damage to your furniture, I'm willing to offer you reparations though I can't really help my fic urges. Now, for the prompts:

The Legend of the Ice People )

Figure Skating RPF )

Ten Inch Hero )

Now about my general likes when it comes to fics. I have a rec list on Delicious for you to check out and I like all kinds though of course I do tend to like it on the explicit side but I'm not adverse to the lower ratings. If you potentially matched up with me on figure skating RPF, then you probably were in great luck as I've been reading quite heavily there so you should get a pretty clear view of my tastes there. But in all honesty, I'm easy to please. I like most genres and writing styles and such. Write what you want.

I do have dislikes and I have to mention my ultimate squick first. I don't like bloodplay (except in the rare vampire fic) so I'd advise you keep that out. Also if including non-con, please step lightly. It's not a squick or a trigger or anything like that. I'm just not all that into it. Also kidfic isn't something I seek out. I deal with kids in my job and I tend to pick away at the characterization in kidfics. Nobody wants that, do they?

But overall, dear yule goat, I'm going to be so happy with whatever you are going to write for me. Things made with love and care make the greatest yuletide gifts and that's all I want.

Lots of love,
Hildi

There isn't much point with this post except to wish people happy birthday. I'm pretty sure neither of those two I'm going to wish a happy birthday to, will ever read this post. One is fictional and I sincerely hope the other one has more sense than to be reading the LJs of his fans.

Happy Birthday to Ronald Bilius Weasley. I'm sure you are wearing the thirty years well, bb.

And Happy Birthday to Jensen Ackles who hopefully isn't back at work today but having a lie-in instead. And hopefully someone makes him laugh today.



Maybe even the currently newly-wed dude whose fall through a door made for this wonderful laughing Jensen gif above.
hildigunnur: (jensen - not easily convinced)
I made a few bids in the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fandom auction and already I've received a fic. A rather funny and lovely fic.

Go and read it if you like cute J2 AU fics.

Kiss Me I'm Irish by [livejournal.com profile] diabolical22 (R rated or thereabouts).

Like a lot of other good people, I have an embarrassment squick and upon seeing the still for this (this being a video of Jared and Jensen claiming they don't have any accounts on social media websites), the said squick spiked. But watching it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, maybe because Jared seems pretty OK with talking into what appears to be a camera phone camera in a badly lit trailer but Jensen kind of looks like a) he hasn't got his morning coffee yet and b) he'd rather have a colonoscopy than do this video. I feel ya, Jensen.

Happy New Year, peeps!

I've been either sleeping or groggy for those roughly 24 hours I've experienced of 2010. Might have something to do with the lack of sleep the night before and it's not a taste of things to come.

Am going to point out that the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide reveals are up.

I wrote a bizarre little fic called Green Grapes. It's a Project Runway RPF fic and features Tim Gunn being bewildered by a suite at the Ritz in Paris. Yeah, I don't know either. I was there just for the ride.

Massive love to Oyster and halotolerant for the fics they wrote for me.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
Got a part of my Christmas wish. A full night's sleep. Probably had something to do with the amount of akvavit, red wine and Bénédictine liqueur I consumed.

Then I woke up this morning to two lovely Yuletide fics meant for me.

First I have to mention the awesome A Bit of Fry and Laurie fic I received, featuring Tony and Control and written in script format. Funny and brilliant really. Go forth and read The Lingerie Massacres.

Then I received a fic that was so tailored made for me. Before I knew of such a thing as fandom and way before I knew about RPF, I totally shipped Robbie Williams/Mark Owen from Take That. And now I have a Robbie/Mark story written for me and it hits all kinds of spots for me. Yeah, just read Come On.

I think I'm off to read more Yuletide fic and maybe also enjoy my Christmas loot. And listen to Take That.
hildigunnur: (yuletide)
It's the time of the year when Yuletide creeps upon you. So dear Yuletide writer, you got assigned little old me. Well, crazy little old me.

I do hope you are not tearing out your hair over my pretty open requests. But I'm pretty easy to please really. I like fluff, I like angst, I enjoy the occasional darkfic. I don't squick easily (more on that later) and I don't have any triggers or at least not any I've encountered in my eight plus years in fandom.

I don't have any particular dislikes that I expect to crop up. My dislikes have always been fandom specific and let's not go there. You really don't want hear about how much I hate Ron-bashing since you are not going to write me a Harry Potter fic.

My squicks can be summed up in one word: bloodplay. Well, also watersports and scat but I won't be half as disappointed if you inadvertently include scat than you'd include bloodplay. Don't ask why. It would be true teal deer.

So yeah, basically I'm easy to please and I will probably love your fic.

Let's get down to individual fandoms.

Drop the Dead Donkey
More )

Green Wing
More )

RPF - Take That
More )

A Bit of Fry and Laurie
More )

I do hope this has made you feel all warm inside and you are now dancing a merry jig in celebration because you were assigned my requests. Well, probably not but I do hope you are done with the screaming at least. ;)

If you are still curious about my likes and dislikes, feel free to check out my rec list. It used be Harry Potter-only but has now plethora of Supernatural and CWRPS fics and then you can find the occasional other stuff. And if you think reading my own writing might help you, check out this list of my fics.

OK, here are my answers to the shipping meme from yesterday.

[livejournal.com profile] sigrundora asked for a lot of fandoms. She be crazy so my answers kind of reflect that.

Wonderfalls, Leverage, Jane Austen, Kane (WTF?), House, Mercy (WTH?), Dark Angel, STV, STXI, CWRPS, Green Wing & Battlestar Galactica )

The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] queenriley asked for the following fandom:

Harry Potter )

[livejournal.com profile] janni and [livejournal.com profile] lnhammer brought in the Icelandic sagas.

Egils saga & Njáls saga )

I offered you the chance to ask me about fandom opinion yesterday. Some of you jumped on the offer. The offer still stands if you like.

But here are the answers to the questions I've been asked so far.

[livejournal.com profile] xkelorosiamano asked me about my opinion of Wincest.

My thoughts on Wincest )

[livejournal.com profile] alphabet26 asked a lot of questions. The first one is one of my sample questions - the one about misogyny in SPN.

I don't hate on women )

[livejournal.com profile] alphabet26 asked another SPN related question and I have an inkling [livejournal.com profile] sarahblack is interested in the answer as well. That is, what's my thoughts on Jo?

Miss Harvelle if you are nasty )

Then there come the Harry Potter opinions.

[livejournal.com profile] alphabet26 and [livejournal.com profile] chickadilly both wanted my thoughts on the epilogue.

At the end of all things )

[livejournal.com profile] alphabet26 then asked me about my favourite canon and fanon ships in Harry Potter.

Well, my favourite ship in HP canon is Ron/Hermione. Been shipping that since “whatever house I’m in, I hope she’s not in it.”

My favourite fanon ship is Harry/Ron. It’s the only ship I can claim to still read when it comes to Harry Potter fanfiction.

Finally [livejournal.com profile] prettyannamoon got curious about what kind of Twilight fanfiction I'd write (if I had no choice or something).

No damn Edward/Bella, that's for sure! )
hildigunnur: (jared - relevant to my interest)
I had the idea last night to do something similar. Ask people to ask me about my opinion on fannish things. And then [livejournal.com profile] chickadilly posted this meme and I pilfered it.

Ask me any question about any object of my fannish obsession - be it my opinion on the canon to my thoughts on the fandom itself - and I will answer.

So ask me away. You can ask me if I've perceived and am bothered by the misogyny in Supernatural or whether I like the epilogue in Deathly Hallows or not. Or with which Drop the Dead Donkey character I spend the night? Or what ship is the awesomest ship on Green Wing? Or if I had to, what kind of Twilight fanfiction I'd write? And yeah, those are just suggestions. Anonymous commenting is on. Ask away people.

Gacked most recently from [livejournal.com profile] verav.

a. Name your 10 15 absolutely favourite fandom ships (try to pick different fandoms)
b. Ask people to see what trends and similarities they notice about your ships.

In some fandoms I can come up with several ships, in some of the fandoms mentioned, I thought "Well, if I ship anything in this fandom, I ship this."

1. Ron/Hermione (Harry Potter)
2. Merlin/Arthur (Merlin)
3. Stuart/Vince (Queer as Folk UK)
4. Seth/Summer (The O.C.)
5. Wash/Zoe (Firefly)
6. Jared/Jensen (RPS)
7. Legolas/Gimli (LotR book)
8. Aragorn/Legolas (LotR movies)
9. Sam/Dean (Supernatural)
10. Dominic/Villimey (Ísfólkið)
11. Will/Elizabeth (Pirates of the Caribbean)
12. Danny/Kenickie (Grease)
13. Kirk/Spock (Star Trek)
14. Hardison/Parker/Eliot (Leverage)
15. Darcy/Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice)

People, I'm stuffed. Both with great food and great fic.

OMG! [livejournal.com profile] yuletide! It's awesome. I was so lucky that I had the loveliest couple of Yuletide treats. Two adorable Grease fics with Kenickie and Danny being angsty and cute and slashy. Fade Out, Fade In and Greased Lightning.

The recipient of my fic seemed to like the fic so really it couldn't been better except for that fact that Yuletide means a tide of excellent fic. I've started bookmarking stuff, then I need to tag it and stuff on delicious.com. But I have to rec one fic now, The Running Order, a Drop the Dead Donkey fic where current events feature heavily.
hildigunnur: (yuletide noob)
OK, first I must admit that I'm a total newbie when it comes to [livejournal.com profile] yuletide so be gentle.

I'm rather easy to please and can almost read anything whether it's gen, het or slash. You may be surprised as most of my requests involve slash but I do offer an escape plan for most.

My general squicks include incest and bloodplay so please avoid those. It should be relatively easy to accommodate, I hope.

Few notes on my requests. (Format stolen from [livejournal.com profile] mctabby and slightly altered).

On my requests )
