So Yuletide. For those not into the whole writing thing, Yuletide is a rare fandoms Christmas challenge. It's huge, and prestigious (as these things go), and I do like writing obscure stuff here and there. Tomorrow the form to nominate the fandoms that are eligible this year goes live, and (apparently it's a new thing) people get to nominate the six fandoms they have a yen for, or think are deserving. It's quite exciting, as I say! What on earth can I nominate? Do I know enough obscure fandoms? What fandoms are deserving enough? Who do I choose? *bites fingernails*
The Philadelphia Story: perhaps goes without saying. Or perhaps not. Ever since I wrote a ficlet exploring CK Dexter Haven's pining for Mike, I've wanted more. Whether I write it or someone else does. It's going in.
Temeraire: May not be an obscure fandom if Peter Jackson gets his way - better get it in while I still can :)
Shakespeare: I've loved Hamlet and Benedick with a passion since my teens, but if I ask for them, will I get them, or some other random Shakespearean characters? And without the Bard's own language, stories based on the plays always sound a little false anyway... Do I want to be disappointed?
Traders: I love the show, and I believe it still counts as an obscure fandom, but it's linked to probably the most massive fandom going at the moment. So am I just sneaking SGA in at the backdoor?
And at that point I wibble, and look round for more inspiration. Aarghh.
