Hello, shiny Yuletide author!

First off, thank you so much for taking on my random-ass list. I hope that the cobbled-together notes will allow you to piece together something you won't kill yourself to write.

Shiny Stephanie-World Pipe Dream? Community fic centering around a theme of the movie Clue. Maybe Abed trying to film a remake? Random Tim Curry arrival?

Things I like best about Clue: the rapid-fire speech, Mrs. White being ridiculous, Tim Curry being smug at all the people.

Things I like best about Community: the pop culture references, Troy and Abed as voices of offbeat reason. Moar Blorgons.

Things I like best about Greek and Roman Mythology: the humanizing characteristics of divinity, and how humans can see something of ourselves in the actions and motivations of higher beings.

Things I like best about the Three Musketeers movie: OMG airships, Orlando Bloom being hilarious, Aramis being awesome. Aramis being awesome and snarky. Aramis being awesome, snarky, and kind of hot. /has a favorite

Things I like about fic in general: I like fics that make me laugh. Pairings are fine, of any and all kinds. Sexytimes are also fine, so long as they are not PWP. Episodic spinoffs and missing scenes are always awesome, as well as wholly new plots and ideas.

I hope some of this is helpful, but if it's not, I have left anon commenting on if that is useful to you. Otherwise, anyone on my flist would probably be able to tell you stuff I like.

Thank you again, shiny author person. You're a gentleman and a scholar.

<3, Stephanie

To my favoritest Yuletide author ever:

You are badass.

I have included very little in the way of notes here on purpose. I am open to anything! (Beyond, you know. Sketchy romantically-involved Rose Crisp somewhere. But you get the idea...)

I enjoy anything, but will admit to a certain fondness for romantically-involved stories at the present time. (Gwen and Joe!) If it can give me a cavity, it's probably the right amount of sweet.

Except for Dantes. He's um...he's not sweet. <333 But you are, for taking this on!

Much love, and let me know if you need anything else,

Ask a character a question, any question, and they HAVE to answer completely honestly. Have to. It's the meme rule. Even if they'd normally lie, they suddenly have been hit with a truth serum of some kind and must tell the truth. Bwaha.

Er, for Mal Reynolds, Sallie Reynolds, SARAH, Eisenheim and Carlisle Cullen.

Registering for captaincy papers at the West Persephone hub is an involved process.

Well, not overly -- just long.

Boring. Tedious. Long and boring and tedious.

"Reginald Harbatkin!" a voice calls over a loudspeaker in this DMV of the future that exists in my head. Finally! he walks up to the counter, handing over the requested records and sizable fee in order to claim captaincy and docking privleges.

"...You're already registered. One ship at a time, Captain."

"That's impossible," he would cry out, pointing at the paperwork. "I was only cleared this morning."

"No, I've got you down for a Firefly-class, 03-K64. If something happened to the ship, you have to report it, Captain."
Not worth reading just yet; I had the setup in my head and this will be added to later.

Spoilers for every damn thing.Collapse )
Notice how I never take credit/blame for these things. I don't know if that's a good thing that I am honest about who gives me ideas, or bad because I am so easily swayed into such shenanigans. If you figure it out, lemme know.

Mal's known Jack Bauer since 2518, his time --

"Reynolds, be happy I'm out of bullets. It's all I'm saying. Be happy."

And Mal's asked Jack for help, in that 'Let's be bad guys' way that he's stolen from Jayne on occasion, numerous times.

"What are you talkin' about, Bauer? I think red is a very flattering color on you."

"Let's just get this over with, zi xihuan de." Practiced Chinese spit like a curse, Jack pulling the red tassel's of a Companion's novice robes over his head.

Inara doesn't volunteer ideas for jobs on a very frequent basis, but this one was perfect -- a training house, collection boxes from the entirety of the system, lots of people, scenario to blend into --

Men only. Gorramit.

Mal walks through the halls at a fast clip, but uncovered in the robes from his marriage on Verbena. They're accurate, and of a higher status than most they pass in the corridors, so the way is clear. The locked chambers are easily picked open, and Mal's ready to reach down and pull the knife out of his waistband, when Jack froze in place.

"Someone's coming," he mouths, and with nowhere to hide, Jack checks Mal into the wall of the entranceway to the chambers, his hood falling back to his shoulders with the force that Jack's mouth meets Mal's.

That someone does walk in the room, clearing his throat at the sight of a Companion's favorite and a novice together. "Excuse me."

Jack pulls away, and Mal is the first to recover. "[I was making a delivery to the room. Forgive my student. He is...eager.]" The third man shifts his gaze between Jack and Mal, nods, and departs.

Mal, for his part, spins on his heel to look at Jack. "Remind me to never take you on a job again."

Jack turns back to the task at hand, but he is grinning. "What? Did I not make the grade?" he jokes, even as Mal scowls at him. The only answer Jack receives is as they have almost made their escape: "You were passable."

Jack stares at Mal blankly.

"...As a novice."

Of course.

For Viv: Ingress visiting Mal in Herald Whites.

"It's been a long time," Mal starts off.

"Is six years really all that long?"

"It can be. I mean..." Mal is finally standing by this point, crossing the room to give Ingress a hug, lingering there appreciatively for just a second. "How long has it been since you graduated?"

"Only a few days. It's the first chance I have had to come to visit everyone."

A short nod, and Mal is concentrating more on Ingress' appearance and vestments than her response. "Look at you. All white and important." Even with still a sizable height difference over Ingress, Mal hasn't met the young woman's eyes again since he stood to meet her.

"...Is that...alright, Mal?"

"Hunh? Oh, shi a." He snaps out of his daze, offering an apologetic sort of grimace. "Duibuqi. You need to remember, I recollect building sandpeople with you on the beach -- hard to understand that and see you as..."

"Adult?" Ingress hazards.

"I was goin' to say responsible and law-abiding," Mal cracks a joke, but both of them know it's not worth much. After the laugh dies down, the man asks, "You stayin' safe? Do I have to have a conversation with a magic horse now elsewise?"

"Mal, I'm fine. Don't worry."

"You don't get a say in the matter."

Ingress reaches up and gives Mal a kiss on the cheek. With a knowing sort of smile, "You do your job; I'll do mine."
