Hello anonymous Ladystucker, we meet once again.

I'm glad you're here! Here's the game plan: I'll start off with my general likes and dislikes and then go through each prompt. Some of these likes and dislikes will apply to some prompts more than others.

LIKES:
-A good dose of hilarity
-Wacky, silly AUs
-Elaborate, intricate world building (art version: really detailed backgrounds that make me want to dive into the picture and explore)
-Introspection
-Ladies hangin out and having a good time
-Ladies hangin out and having a terrible time with a lot of meta angst and ham-fisted dialogue (aka: daytime soap opera. art version: things that look like bad romance novel covers)

I pretty much like everything! I don't have a single trigger or filter, so if you think gore horror porn would really fit a certain prompt go right ahead.

DISLIKES:
-Cherubs (No Calliope or Calliborn, please! I'm sorry!)
-Gamzee, fuck that guy
-Songfic

Onto the prompts!

JADE/VRISKA HEAVY METAL BAND AU

These two don't have to be in a relationship (they can be best buds if you feel like it would work better) but I really want to see them shreddin' six strings and tearing shit up on the concert circuit (or in their mom's basement, if they're trying to make it big). Does Vriska do screamo? Does Jade play electric flute or bass guitar? Are they really into viking imagery? Are they like Gwar? Are Vriska and Jade a famous power metal duo in the 80s with legendary manes that cascade down their backs in a shimmer of body glitter? Pretty much everything is up to you! Here's a list of heavy metal types for your perusal.

JADE SOLO ADVENTURE
Jade has a sidequest on her planet! The more elaborate the sidequest, the better (Does she have to explore an ancient temple buried underneath the volcano?  Does she have to do a fetch quest involving three gems scattered at different shrines around her world?) I want this to be an action/adventure piece, mainly. I would strongly prefer it if Dave, Karkat, and John were not involved AT ALL in the work (if she's to talk to anyone, let it be Rose or Kanaya! Or another cool lady). I'd like this to be canon compliant, so either set it during the game before/after Dave and her went frog hunting, or post-game while she's on the battleship.

ANYONE, CLOTHING PORN
Kind of a weird prompt, but I want a piece where one or multiple of the Homestuck ladies looks HOT. Not like, pornographic hot, but "well put together" hot. Think Esther Quek. Really well tailored, really sure of themselves, etc etc. Doesn't have to all be pantsuits either, it could be Rose Lalonde wandering around in perfect flowing black dresses for all I care. You can pick any of the ladies for this, and can have any relationship you want (I have no particular ladyship notps or otps so you have full creative freedom!) As far as plot goes, if you're doing a fic/comic, feel free to pick anything from Roxy dominating the IT department at a huge company in a pristine wardrobe to Feferi decorating herself in preparation for her coronation as empress.

VRISKA/TEREZI RELIGION AU
This is it, this is the hardest prompt I could think of. Godspeed to you if you fill this.

I want Vriska and Terezi to be Really. Into. a religion. And then they fall in love but, oh no! They cannot be in love because their duties/religion/whatever forbid it! Whatever religion/era you choose is up to you (tread lightly though, don't pick a scenario that would stomp all over someone's legitimate beliefs). Are they middle aged Lutheran grandmas who compete for the best jello salads? Are they Sea Org officers in Scientology? Are they nuns in the 1600s who have secret lesbian sex? Are they eighth graders out to make the BEST coven ever? Are they staunchly atheist lady-neckbeard redditors (shh, it counts)?

FINAL WORDS

Thanks for taking the time to write/draw/whatever for me! I will definitely appreciate whatever you make, as long as you put your heart into it! I will probably not be on alert the day Ladystuck works become live, so don't fret if I don't comment right away.

See you in January,

Introduction

Dear Anonymous Yuletider,

Thank you and your lovely self for writing my silly requests. I hope everything is clearly laid out for you and I hope you find some serious inspiration on your Yuletide journey! The way I am going to run through these prompts is to describe in the best way I can the general idea I'm looking for, then give a few prompts you can use for inspiration. You are in no way required to use them.

Kung Fu Werewolf From Outer Space

~*~*~*~*~FYI IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE PROMPT YOU WERE ASSIGNED, THIS IS ONLY A HALF-HOUR MOVIE AND IS VERY EASY TO WRITE ABOUT~*~*~*~*~*~

(It's here! Watch it.)

Okay, as you can tell, I am starving for some fic where the Sensei/Werewolf hit it off romantically. I literally do not care what you do with this. You can do anything, as long as it's canon compliant. An epilogue to the movie where they meet again? A training session filled with blushes and slight hand touches? Hardcore porn??

Like the source material, I would prefer it if you keep it funny/lighthearted. That would include the porn, if you're into writing that (I give you permission to use the worst euphemisms you can think of in order to create something hilarious).

Porco Rosso
I've got two closely related prompts for this! The second one I like better, but there's a big trigger warning on it for suicide/seeking death. If you're not comfortable with that, please do the first prompt.

FIRST: 
Remember that haunting scene Porco recounts to Fio when he saw all the planes and their pilots who were shot down flying into the sky? I would like a post-film scene where he struggles with the memory and Gina helps him recover. This can be romantic or no, whatever you want!

SECOND (suicide/seeking death tw):
Alright,  that plane stream scene is reminiscent of a Roald Dahl short story called "They Shall Not Grow Old" which can be found in the pdf anthology here. If you want to go ahead and read that, do it now! Stop reading this prompt right now because I'm going to summarize the ending below:

One of the characters in the short story experiences the same thing as Porco did, except he actively joins the stream of the dead. The further he flies along with the dead, the more excited and happy he gets, the implication being that the afterlife is hells awesome and he's ready to die. However, it's not his time yet, and he returns to real life upset and jaded. While the character doesn't actively look to die for the rest of the story, he still commits semi-suicide at the end, refusing to jump out of his plane and choosing to crash with it to get back to that stream of planes.

I would like a story where Porco has that sort of feeling about the incident-- a feeling like, "I want to die due to not only guilt but also due to some irresistible draw beyond my comprehension that does not compare to mortal matters." But on the other hand, there's the joy that can be found in the realm of the living, and also Gina.

This fic can take place anytime after the incident, including post-film. I want Porco to struggle with the temptation of death but to find solace in Gina or flying his planes or whatever else you want. You can end this fic hopefully or tragically, whatever you think is best.

The World Ends With You
Just going to copy pasta my yuletide entry from last year, since I'm requesting the exact same thing...

I rarely see it written where Joshua is either an actual adult, or treated like an adult by Hanekoma. I desire some seriously adult romance, not necessarily pornographic, but simply a mature romance. And I don't really see that a lot with this pairing, it's either "Joshua is actually a child and Hanekoma is infinitely older" or "Joshua prefers hanging around in the body of a child/having the mind of a child and their relationship switches to creepy older brother/adopted albino child." And I don't have anything against these interpretations, hell, I like reading them a lot! I'm just craving something more... dark? Is dark the word? Adult? Complex?

I hope that makes sense.

So I would love something with a more "adult twist," again, not necessarily meaning porn. You could write about a post-game scene, where Joshua is aware of Hanekoma's plot and things are tense. Or maybe Joshua using his child-like appearance to make things awkward. Maybe Hanekoma going through some inner monologue about how he can stop Joshua from destroying Shibuya. Perhaps Hanekoma and Joshua simply hanging out in Shibuya's underworld before the game, discussing what to do with the diseased city. You can make it introspective, make it subtle, make it sexually tense, make them play a weird conversational game of cat and mouse, just make it, well, adult.

A Separate Peace
I'm going to request the same frickin' thing every year and I don't even care. Last year I got a really rad pirating AU from this prompt, and I want to see what this year will turn up with!

Bare bones minimum for this fic you're going to write: Place it in an AU. This can be any basic AU, modern high school au, coffeeshop au, whatever you want! I'll love the shit out of it as long as it involves some Finny/Gene shipping.

However, what I think would be hella awesome, and I think would make something pretty fun to write, is to set it in a completely original and borderline ridiculous AU.

Examples: Finny and Gene as space pirates, Finny is a god who Gene worships in some ancient society, Viking AU, AU where they are monks in a monastery trying really hard not to bone the shit out of each other, etc. 

If you do a "wacky" AU, I would prefer you treat it seriously. Wait, perhaps "seriously" is too loaded a word. What I mean is, take this kind of silly, odd AU and write your heart out! It can be lighthearted, it can be sad, it can be filled with emotions, it can have a exciting plot twist at the end, just don't treat it like crack. If you can do it, earnestly place these characters in a unique place and have fun!

Final Thoughts

I am going to finish this off by saying I will probably not be present on the fic reveal day, so do not panic if I do not comment on your assuredly wonderful story on the fine morn of Christmas day.

I will love whatever you write, my dear author, so write boldly and bravely!

Good luck!

Alright I'm hoping this will be a short one, let's see how far we get.

LIKES

There's one open pairing prompt, so I'm going to list my "I'm especially fond of these pairings" pairings.
  • Jade Harley/Karkat Vantas
  • Jade Harley/Rose Lalonde
  • Jade Harley/Rose Lalonde/Kanaya Maryam
  • Jade Harley/Aradia Megido
I also really enjoy elaborate, intricate adventures, if you're able to do that. But I enjoy some good worldbuilding, introspection, or silly banter as well, if you want to make a shorter work. For the visual stuff, I really like super action-y things! But again, go with whatever you feel best fits the prompt to the best of your abilities. I will probably like it as long as you write/draw/edit your little heart out.
DISLIKES
  • Dave Strider/Jade Harley -- I'm so sorry. Don't put this in your fanwork unless if Karkat is sandwiched in-between them. I'm cool with Davesprite/Jade though.
  • Jade Harley/Tavros Nitram
  • The cherubs -- Don't put them in your fanwork. Don't even reference them. I will be sad and cry many tears.
  • The Terezi/Gamzee kismesis fiasco -- Don't reference it, the tears will begin to flow, softly at first, then turn into a raging river of angry emotions.
  • Songfic
  • PWP, at least for this challenge. Put in porn if you want, just make sure it comes as the result of something (like sollux and jade bone at the end of a super radical cyberpunk mission, or something akin to that)
I've got no triggers, so if you want to put in some violent gorefest orgy for 6,000 words because you think it will be awesome, go for it. Okay, on with the prompts:

CYBERPUNK AU - SOLLUX/JADE
If you don't want to make this a romantic pairing, don't. Make them friends, or enemies, or reluctant coworkers, whatever... I just want to see these two hang out in a gritty cyberpunk future. Save the world, do hacking things, Jade does some cool action-y stuff. You can make this whatever you want, as long as you keep it within the theme. If that's too vague for you, here's some specific prompts:

-Jade is a cyborg wondergirl and needs to go into the shop for Sollux to fix a bug in her tracking software.
-Jade and Sollux team up to take down a big space-mafia boss... Jade does infiltration while Sollux does the hacking.
-Jade and Sollux hang out at a noodle bar in a gritty, detailed technological world.
-If you've read Neuromancer and writing a fic the prompt can literally be just a rehash of that book. Make Jade into Molly and make her the main character. Bam, fic done.

Do whatever you want, just make it cool as fuck. Cool. As. Fuck. And this should go without mention, but Jade should really be the focus here-- how she interacts with Sollux, how she interacts with the world, how she gets what she wants, etc.

SUPERNATURAL MYSTERY AU - TEREZI/JADE
Again, if you don't want to make them a romantic pairing, and just want to make them bffs, do it. However, I'd rather these two have positive feelings towards each other, and not be begrudgingly working together or whatever.

Anyway, Terezi and Jade discover an odd murder, or some weird objects getting stolen, or a sighting of a ghost, and as detectives/cops/CIA agents/supernatural enthusiasts, go on a quest to discover what the hell is going on. Lots of friendship/romance buildup, cool supernatural shit, and Jade being a general bamf is what I want from this fanwork. You can make them fight a demon, compromise with a ghost haunting a house, or go after a spiritualist who summoned something awful, or whatever you want! It doesn't have to be spooky, just... intriguing.

FANTASY AU - JADE
God I'm so fucking predictable. Just give me weird AUs all day.

Anyway this should be pretty simple: high fantasy, sword and sorcery AU. Any relationships you want  (or no relationships). Jade kicks ass.

She can be a witch, a battle mage, fight a dragon, whatever. Just make it a really campy, really awesome D&D style work. Have her explore an abandoned library, find her friend in the Lost Tombs, or invade a corrupt Temple of the Horrorterrors. Make it a rad adventure for Jade and I'll be so, so happy.

Have fun! And I can't wait to see your work :)

Hello anonymous writer, my old friend, it's a pleasure to see you once again this year.

This is really long and I'm sorry. I just have a lot of feelings about my requests.

My letter will follow as such:

-A introductory summary of prompts and how they fit in with this letter
-Dislikes
-Prompt details for your perusal
-Final thoughts.

Introduction
I have a few points to address with the briefness of the prompts and the length of this letter.

IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST:
The following letter assumes that there will be some kind of fic/story/comic written for the prompt, so you don't have to pay attention to anything I request besides what's already in the sign-up itself IF you are doing only a single piece of artwork. However, feel free to read through the elaboration I provide anyway if you desire any inspiration.

IF YOU ARE WRITING A FIC/A COMIC/SOME OTHER STORY TELLING VEHICLE:
I am really only requesting, at the most basic level, something that follows what is written in the sign-up form itself. There's a whole ton of bonus details that I think would be cool if you could work in for each different prompt, but you really don't have to. The elements which will follow this section are all up to you. If you interpreted the initial prompt in a different way than what I suggest and you think it will be really awesome: go for it. The number one thing that I would like to see is a fanwork you put effort into and were enthusiastic about, and that is far more important than any detail I provide.

However, even if you think you've got your idea down pat and are ready to rock, you should read through my prompt descriptions anyways, just in case if something in particular adds some inspiration to your mix. And besides, I'm rather keen on my suggestions and want other people to read them!

Dislikes
I'm only putting my dislikes here because I pretty much like everything (from gore to horror to angst to fluff to character study to action to...) and AO3's signup filtering should do most of the job for me if there is anything I'm iffy about. However, here are two things I would not like to see in your gifts.

-Songfic
-Caliborn/Calliope

Apologies if you are the biggest cherub fan in the world, there are just very, very few ways I like seeing them written or alluded to. Hopefully there wont be any problems, but if you need some kind of omnipresent villain and/or deity I am a.ok with mentions of Lady/Lord English. Just not their younger versions.

Literally any other characters in Homestuck are great with me. Also literally any relationship. And no relationships are great too. I also have no triggers so you have a great amount of freedom with your work.

Prompts
Terezi Pyrope - Fantasy AU


First off, and this part is required, Terezi Pyrope has to be confident in this AU. I've been missing the full-of-herself preteen iteration of her character so hard, and I need that part of her in my life once again. (That isn't to say she can't have any issues in the fic, just... she shouldn't have the same problems she has now in the comic, if that makes sense.)

Onto the fantasy part. What I had in mind for this fic was just a big heaping gob of worldbuilding. Just a big heaping steaming lump of high fantasy or sword & sorcery. From a Western perspective, this might mean a ton of castles, dragons, and sword battles, but I encourage you to branch out if you've got a different idea (perhaps a fic setting inspired by one of the tales in the Nihonshyoki) and are aware of other mythologies and genres.

No matter what kind of setting you pick, there should be plenty of elements that are a staple of the genre. Some examples that come to my mind right away are-- a blind and mysterious circle of immortal prophets, a dusty library filled with magical tomes, a statue to The Ancient Dragon recently dishonored by rebellious graffiti, a harp that causes the person playing it to go crazy, etc etc. Keep it creative, exciting, and riveting.

Now this is Ladystuck, not D&Dstuck, so I'd like to see a lot of interaction with this world by Terezi. If you're into long fanworks, you could send her on an epic quest. She could grow as a person, save the world, or simply manage to fix a justice system clerical error. If you want to do something short, give a snapshot of this place, imply the shit out of the mechanics of this world, and focus on how Terezi fits into the setting and how it makes her feel.

Also, I realize this sounds like Terezi HAS to go on this great adventure and do all these battles and walk away from explosions slowly in the wrong direction, but if you notice I did not check off the action/adventure genre box. You can make this whatever you want, intrigue (Terezi must interrogate the naga ambassador at the royal banquet?), horror (Terezi wandering through the Necropolis?), romance (Terezi seduces the dashing Rouge of Hearts in the Pantheon of the Octopi?), whatever you want.

Whew, that was long. What's the next prompt?

Aradia Megido - Speakeasy AU


This prompt requires a little background information. I'm not sure how often you, dear author, get out and about, so I will explain the concept of a modern speakeasy. A traditional speakeasy is a concept from prohibition-era USA, where patrons would have to go to secret bars and whisper passwords and all that nonsense to get a drink. This practice continues today in the modern speakeasy, despite the lack of need to do this anymore. It's just kind of fun to sneak into a cave through a tailor shop and hang out with your friends.  For examples of some pretty easy to find ones in NYC, check out this article ->[link].

There are also some seriously elite and secret speakeasys out there (theoretically) with some really rich or famous or powerful or weird patrons. What I want for this fanwork is for Aradia to be the bartender of a very modern, very elite, and very mysterious speakeasy.

I would like to see the intrigue hyped up to 1000. I want to see all these patrons with their secrecy and hiding and possible weirdness telling drunken stories to the bartender,  and Aradia, always curious, getting those stories out of them. The patrons who are featured in this fic should be female characters, or at least mostly female, and if you want Aradia to have a relationship with any particular patron-- go for it.

This does not have to be humanstuck, you can set it on Prospit or Alternia or fucking Jupiter if you want to.

Note for artists: This is probably hard to draw an image of, so if you want to make the bar 20's themed or make it have some other kind of theme to make it visually appealing-- go for it.

Rose Lalonde and Terezi Pyrope - Canon Divergence AU

The only thing that should be really different about this AU is that Terezi and Rose have more time on their hands and they can't leave LoLaR (perhaps there is a glitch over the portal and they can't go through?).

The basic premise is as follows: Rose Lalonde and Terezi Pyrope go on an adventure to learn to play the rain. Perhaps Rose is bored and drags Terezi across her planet, or Terezi wants to get her mind off things, or she wants to practice being unable to see again before she goes clown hunting. Whatever the cause is, the two attempt to complete Rose's quest and learn something about themselves or each other over the course of their adventure.

It is up to you what kind of quest Rose has to complete in order to play the rain, as well as how she plays the rain, but I think it would be cool if it involved some team-building exercises. Yay for friendship! I'd like to see the quest described in the fic, since I do enjoy a good adventure.

You do NOT have to make this canon compliant-- Terezi and Rose can grow in ways that don't fit where they are in the comic right now. And while this should be a friendship fanwork first and foremost, please feel free to add another genre (violence, angst, horror, humor, politics, whatever) if the need suits you.

No romance please. Just two ladies hanging out and perhaps becoming friends.

Final Thoughts
I would like to extend a big warm thank you for your willingness to write for me. I can't wait to read your story/look at your beautiful artwork.

I also might not be around on the date the stories are revealed, so do not fret if I do not comment on your assuredly wonderful fanwork immediately!

Thank you,

Introduction

Dear Anonymous Yuletider,

Thank you and your lovely persona for writing my silly requests. I hope everything is clearly laid out for you and I hope you find some serious inspiration on your Yuletide journey! I am going to start off with my general likes and dislikes, and we can go from there!

Likes:
  • Fanfic you put your heart into and worked hard to complete
  • Rich language
  • Witty dialogue
  • Comedy, lightheartedness, whimsy
  • Tragedy, angst, introspectiveness, sad feelings
  • Worldbuilding (depends on if setting is important, however)
  • Elaborate plots
  • Simplistic plots with a lot to say
  • Longfic and shortfic and everything-in-between-fic!
Dislikes:
  • Songfic (Paragraphs of story interspersed with lyric phrases from a specific song)
  • Crackfic (Well, it's not as if I don't like crackfic, it's that it's rarely done to my tastes. Just stay away from it all together and you are safe with me!)
  • Porn without a plot (porn is fine, porn is pretty great actually, IF there is a plot. I would rather have the sex only at the climax [hur hur] of the story as opposed to... well, the whole story)

The way I am going to run through these prompts is to describe in the best way I can the general idea I'm looking for, then give a few prompts you can use for inspiration! You are in no way required to use them!

Metropolis Suites - Janelle Monáe/ ANY CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS

I am going to start this request off by stating I have no fucking clue what happens in these albums. I love them, I know many of the lyrics by heart, I love the message which rings clear and true, and I am going to see the goddess herself in concert in these next few weeks following the date on this letter. However, as far as the plot on this conceptual conglomerate goes, I am completely in the dark, with only the oddly written CD inserts to guide me down the path of story comprehension.

So what am I asking you, oh writer, to do? I am asking you to pick a scene from any of the albums (or two scenes, or three, or a whole album, or the whole damn suite) and write it. Explain something that happens in the Suites for me, slowly, with beautiful words and skyscrapers of world building. Write about the romance between Cindi and Greendown, write about the Q.U.E.E.N. project, write about those weird mirror dudes in the Tightrope video. Hell, you can even describe the Neon Valley streets for like eight chapters if you are so inclined, and I would be as pleased as a pumpkin (and pumpkins are generally very pleased).

I don't care what kind of story you make this, it can be funny, tragic, bizzare, short, long, or accompanied by a soundtrack. As long as you use your wonderful imagination, and keep it in the world of the Metropolis Suites (which, as far as I can tell, is a pretty broad setting), I will appreciate it forever.

The one thing that I request you not do --and I listed this above but I feel as though I should restate it considering the nature of the fandom-- I do not enjoy songfic. I will make an exception for this fic: say if you want to start off the fic with some tasteful lyrics from one of her songs, and if you think it will really add to your fic, sure go for it. But again, do not write a straight up songfic as specified in my introduction.

Subarashiki Kono Sekai | The World Ends With You/ JOSHUA/HANEKOMA

Alright, I'm going to be blunt with you. This is my otp to end otps, my one ship in this game, my guiding light in a sea of Joshua/Neku. But alas, I have a craving for a special brand of Joshua/Hanekoma that seems to be lacking in the fic scene. And this craving is rather hard to describe, but I shall do my best, dear writer.

I rarely see it written where Joshua is either an actual adult, or treated like an adult by Hanekoma. I desire some seriously adult romance, not necessarily pornographic, but simply a mature romance. And I don't really see that a lot with this pairing, it's either "Joshua is actually a child and Hanekoma is infinitely older" or "Joshua prefers hanging around in the body of a child/having the mind of a child and their relationship switches to creepy older brother/adopted albino child." And I don't have anything against these interpretations, hell, I like reading them a lot! I'm just craving something more... dark? Is dark the word? Adult? Complex?

I hope that makes sense.

So I would love something with a more "adult twist," again, not necessarily meaning porn. You could write about a post-game scene, where Joshua is aware of Hanekoma's plot and things are tense. Or maybe Joshua using his child-like appearance to make things awkward. Maybe Hanekoma going through some inner monologue about how he can stop Joshua from destroying Shibuya. Perhaps Hanekoma and Joshua simply hanging out in Shibuya's underworld before the game, discussing what to do with the diseased city. You can make it introspective, make it subtle, make it sexualy tense, make them play a weird conversational game of cat and mouse, just make it, well, adult.

Again, these are just suggestions, if you just HATE this kind of writing/characterization then feel free to write whatever kind of Joshua/Hanekoma you want! At its core, romance between the two is really what I want.  I will love it whatever you make!

A Separate Peace/ Finny/Gene

I will request this pairing every year until the day I die. And I'll always request a similar thing.

Bare bones minimum for this fic you're going to write: Place it in an AU. This can be any basic AU, modern high school au, coffeeshop au, whatever you want! I'll love the shit out of it as long as it involves some Finny/Gene shipping.

However, what I think would be hella awesome, and I think would make something pretty fun to write, is to set it in a completely original and borderline ridiculous AU.

Examples: Finny and Gene as space pirates, Finny is a god who Gene worships in some ancient society, Viking AU, AU where they are monks in a monastery trying really hard not to bone the shit out of each other, etc. 

If you do a "wacky" AU, I would prefer you treat it seriously. Wait, perhaps "seriously" is too loaded a word. What I mean is, take this kind of silly, odd AU and write your heart out! It can be lighthearted, it can be sad, it can be filled with emotions, it can have a exciting plot twist at the end, just don't treat it like crack. If you can do it, earnestly place these characters in a unique place and have fun!

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann/ Yoko/Kamina

There is not enough Yoko/Kamina goodness in this world and I aim to change that! 

I love love love this pairing. I love their chemistry, I love how hot they look together, and I even love the sheer tragedy about the pairing. However, I feel like the eight episodes where they interact (not counting the finale) really cover their relationship, and I don't really have a desire to read any canon compliant fics (although if you decided to write one I would love to read it!).

So I'm requesting an AU fic for these two. This can be anywhere with any AU you want. Kamina and Yoko go to high school together? Sure! Kamina and Yoko are mafia bosses? Yeah! Kamina and Yoko meet in a 7/11 like in that S.T.A.R.S. video? Hell yeah! Yoko is a framed criminal on the run and Kamina helps her out with his gang of bikers? You know the answer to that!

And again, I love anything from comedy to tragedy to angst to introspective Yoko feelings.

Final Thoughts

I am going to finish this off by saying I will probably not be present on the fic reveal day, so do not panic if I do not comment on your assuredly wonderful story on the fine morn of Christmas day.

I will love whatever you write, my dear author, so write boldly and bravely!

Good luck!
