2014 Dear Yuletide letter

I'll just copy and paste the first part of my Yuletide letter from previous years, because my wishes haven't changed, even though I've requested different fandoms.

You've picked one or more of my fandoms and that says a lot about you (and me, too, I suppose).

I'm rather easy to please although I do have a few 'no-nos' that will send me running - fast - and if you've ever seen me run, it's not a pretty sight.

I tend to cringe at gratuitous graphic sex, although a well written bit of smut, and especially something appropriately sensuous or romantic is always appreciated.

Inconsistencies within a piece make my head spin. If character A likes chocolate ice cream in scene one, then vanilla shouldn't suddenly become their favorite later on. I don't mean that characters have to be entirely true to canon, because sometimes that's up to interpretation.

I frown at unusual cruelty towards even the evilest of characters, and since I don't (usually) kill off characters, even their deaths. Although I love humor, slapstick makes me squirm.

And speaking of humor, fluff is also good and so is clever banter. But I can deal with angst as well as hurt/comfort. Kids in stories can be cute or heartwarming, but overly precocious ones not so much (even though I've been guilty of including those myself).

Otherwise, feel free to express yourself and how you see the story going. These are the ones I chose this year:

Silo Saga – Hugh Howey

What happens to Juliette, Solo and the others after they leave their silos? I'd love a story where they gain entrance to another silo and change the lives of the people there. Or maybe they create a new society based on the things they learned leaving their silos. Alternatively, what changes might they find as they travel further away?

Forever (TV)

We know that Henry first met Abraham when he was a boy, but we haven't yet seen anything about their life together in the intervening years. As Abraham aged and Henry didn't, what problems occurred? What might happen if someone who knew them when Abe was younger turned up at the antique store?

Rift – Liza Cody

Fay had to have more adventures after Rift was over. Where do you think she'd go?

The Masters of Solitude - Marvin Kaye and Parke Godwin 

Anything about the relationship between Ari and Singer would be wonderful. I'd also like to see more about what else is left of our world.
