Dear Yuletide Writer,

First, THANK YOU. I think of Yuletide as more of an opportunity to write something a little different than request something to exacting specifications, so whatever you write is more like a totally awesome bonus than the entire reason I'm participating. In other words, NO PRESSURE. This, and my comments on the assignment, are really just suggestions in case you'd like some.

The most important thing really is no deathfic and I prefer a happy ending. I don't mind working for the happy ending; angst that ends well is splendid. Downer endings, though, kinda bum me out. I'm not a freak about plot—in many of the stories I love nothing really happens except maybe an internal change in a character or an emotional realization. Characters are always more important to me than plot and I adore great conversation. So feel free to have them just sitting around drinking coffee and talking about great Heart songs, or have them find a way to Save the World from Certain Destruction, or anything in between!

My request list is four female friendships: Cher and Dionne from Clueless, Cece and Jess from New Girl, Britta and Shirley from Community, and Leslie and Ann from Parks and Recreation. I do tend to read and write romances, and smut, but that doesn't mean I'm expecting that here. Friendship-centered gen is fantastic too, as I love the friendships between these characters and the way they interact; I've written genfic myself for Yuletide. (However when it comes to smut I do love dirty talk and an equal balance of forces.) I'm not great at compiling recs, but I do write what I like to read, which is mostly ensemble fics with a lot of friendship and romance.

Mostly, thank you in advance; I know that anything you do will be awesome, because it will mean more fic for one of these fandoms, and isn't that the whole point?

Your requests look awesome! Did you see those photoshoots floating around with the Clueless cast reunited?
Did you see the latest New Girl? Lots of Jess + Cece friendship.
