There are so many things I should be doing instead of this, but fuck it. Yuletide brainstorming! Only 3 nominations this year, which makes a lot of sense to me, but augh.

These are my most likely nominations:

Diana Wynne Jones - A Tale of Time City (Jonathan/Vivian)
Athena (A.M.Works) (any)
Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) (Song) (Narrator)

Because I couldn't not nominate DWJ this year and have wanted Jonathan/Vivian for forever, because I am probably the only person who will ever nominate Athena so if I want it to exist I have to be the one to make it happen, and because I have been listening to Florence + the Machine a lot and "Rabbit Heart" has lodged in my consciousness and it hints at some really amazing stories.

These are some alternatives:

Very tempting fandoms that I suspect I'd have to nominate to be sure of them being on the list:
Askewniverse (Alyssa/Bethany)
Initial D (movie) (Takumi/Ryosuke)
Stephen Manes - The Obnoxious Jerks (Frank/Leslie/Joe; Perry, Sims, Demetrios)

Very tempting fandoms that I suspect other people will nominate:

I want this one

Eureka (Jo/Zane/Zoe)

and this one

Mythbusters RPF (Grant/Tory/Kari)


(I also really want Eddi/Phouka/Hedge, especially after Hedge was so very present by his absence in the Eddi/Phouka gift I got last year. I want h/c threesome schmoop, though, and I suspect that's not what you're asking for. :))

I am in favor of h/c threesome schmoop! I don't have anything clear in mind for them, I just want them to be together and awesome. *g*

I am so pleased you plan to nominate Jonathan/Vivian again, because I would love this like burning.

Real Genius (Mitch/Jordan/Chris)

:D :D

And can I say how much I would love some Discworld fem gen, or Witch Week Estelle? ♥

I wish I could justify signing up for Yuletide, because I would love to nominate Wagner's Ring Cycle (the recent Met productions sparking my story generating), or Brat Farrar, or WWI Downton Abbey. But I don't think I can. Responsible time usage, and all of that. :/

I MISS YOU how are you doing?

I MISS YOU TOO! I am... well, up and down, really. This whole year has been really up in the air, kind of stuck in limbo with a lot of moving parts, and sometimes it feels like such a fight to keep up with even the simplest things. The fact that the story I wrote in 24 hours last week is the first fic I've managed to post since February? Kind of sad, when I think about how comparatively productive I was last year. But you know, there are a lot of good things, too. The SO is still awesome and we're going to Italy for a couple of weeks next month, and I've been slowly trying to take responsibility for the many things I've been avoiding, which is probably good. How are things with you?

Responsible time usage is such a downer, but often a necessary one, alas. Those are some awesome ideas for Yuletide, though. Maybe one of these years?

Your opinions are excellent and you should feel excellent.

And I thought my list was too long! *g*

It's so hard getting it down to just three - I went for rarer fandoms than usual last year, and I suspect that this year I'll be picking even rarer fandoms yet!

Very tempting fandoms that I suspect I'd have to nominate to be sure of them being on the list:
Askewniverse (Alyssa/Bethany)

I don't know for sure, but there are usually several Askewniverse fills, so I'd imagine that'd be fairly safe for nomination. Unless people just specify Dogma (which seems to be the most popular one) rather than grouping them together.

*laugh* Always glad to be comforting! My Yuletide brainstorming list is always huge, mostly by design. Sometimes things jump up the list next year, so it's nice to have the reminder of what I was thinking previous years.

I definitely think my nominations and requests have increased in rarity over time. Though I do make an effort to include some things that are fairly easy to pick up, to compensate. :)

Askewniverse is an odd one in that some years it seems to be well-represented but others it disappears entirely. So it definitely has a good chance of being nominated, either as a whole or as separate movies (which is one of the reasons I would feel more secure if I nominated it myself, because I basically want a Dogma/Chasing Amy crossover, and if only single movies get nominated there's no really fair way to request it). But I think there are enough other things I'll likely want even more, so I'm not toooooo worried about it, really. That's definitely one good thing about the enormous list, there's always another good option 'round the corner if a specific one doesn't work out. *g*
