Dear Yuletide author,

First and foremost, thank you so very much for whatever treasure I know you will produce. This is my third year participating in Yuletide and it never fails to bring me piles of joy. I am giving slightly more detailed requests this year than I usually do, but optional details are optional! I can guarantee you I will absolutely love whatever you write for me.

My fandoms and specific requests are as follows:

Cradle Will Rock (1999)

I love the hot mess that is this movie, but I'm sad we never got to see much of Hallie Flanagan! She was a fierce badass lady, but she's not really in this much. Therefore, I would request a deleted/extended scene of sorts, stemming from the scene where Orson Welles invites her out to go drinking with him/Houseman/Blitzstein and she says she can't because they're going to a place that's too fancy for a civil servant :P. I would ADORE a fic in which she actually takes him up on his offer and goes out for drinks with them. She would totally be the resigned, professional mother-type in the face of their shenanigans and I think it could be hilarious. Alternatively, any sort of drunken shenanigans involving Welles/Houseman/Blitzstein would be greatly appreciated!

The Kingkiller Chronicle - Patrick Rothfuss

I don't really have a specific request here, other than I would like it to feature more on the minor characters than Kvothe himself. I adore Wil, Sim, Devi, Kilvin, Elodin, the whole sorry lot of them, but as this is Kvothe's story we don't get as much of them as I'd like. So...anything focusing on any one of the supporting characters! Truly not picky :D

Provost's Dog - Tamora Pierce

Okay, I have two different requests here, depending on whether or not you have read Mastiff yet... if you have not, ignore the first request due to spoilers.

Spoilers for Mastiff )

Alternatively, I would request any sort of fun story involving female-friendship-bonding time between Sabine, Goodwin, and Beka. A girls-night-out interrupted by some form of madcap shenanigans, perhaps? Sabine/Goodwin trying to get Beka to go out and actually have a good time for once? The possibilities are endless!

You can go by these or not as your heart desires, hopefully I am not being too too specific! Whatever you write will bring me joy, I am sure. Thank you so much in advance, and good luck!

Fair warning: Now that I'm on spring break with lots of free time on my hands I will be making lots of useless posts on the ElJay. Except I swear that this post is not useless. Book reviews are never useless! Or so I say...

So, for the past couple of weeks y'all have had to put up with a fair amount of squeeing on my part over Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicle--The Name of the Wind, and then The Wise Man's Fear which came out two weeks ago. It makes me *so sad* that no one (as far as I know) on my flist has read these books, because I am sure that at least a good chunk of you would loooooooove them. Why? Well, let me tell you.

Actually a spoiler-free review, but it's long, so behind the cut we go! )

And now that all that's said and done I'm about to go be a crazy fan and wait in line for three hours at his NYC booksigning in Brooklyn. Fweeeeeeeee!
