Well hello there, wonderful Yuletide Writer (and anyone else popping in to read my letter)!

First off, thank you. And no matter what, try not to stress about any of my requests, Yuletide is supposed to be fun! So since I suck at intro-type things, I'll just jump in to talking about my requests:

1. Elisabeth - Levay/Kunze Elisabeth, Rudolf
Really interested in anything dealing with the relationship between Elisabeth and Rudolf.

I'd really like to see something delving into the relationship between Rudolf and his mother, really at any point in their lives. We know Rudolf idolized his mother, but I'd love to see something digging in to his head on how that idolization affects his interactions, both with her and with other women in his life. Alternately, Elisabeth's thoughts on her son - yes, she was quite the absent mother, but she had to have had some interaction with him other than the few times mentioned/seen. Historically she hated Rudolf's wife - why? Did she have hopes and dreams for her only son or what he just another chain holding her down? And then there's the shadow of Der Tod's interest in both of them hanging over everything...

My only request is nothing too incest-y. Rudolf does seem to have a bit of an Oedipus complex in some versions, but I'd prefer it kept on the "Mom is the perfect woman" level rather than anything sexual.

Version-wise, I've only seen the Takarazuka versons (all seven ;)) but don't let that limit you. For reference, my favorite Elisabeths have been Shirahane Yuri, Hanafusa Mari (in '96 Yukigumi production, I'm not as bit a fan of her performance in the '98 Soragumi production), and Sena Jun. Favorite Rudolfs have been Ouki Kaname, Asami Hikaru, and Oozora Yuuhi. But again, don't let that limit you.

2. Takarazuka Revue RPF - Otozuki Kei, Shirahane Yuri
I love these two classmates, and have wonderful mental ideas of them being quite fun and silly with each other. Appearances by other Yukigumi folk are always welcome.

I'll be fair, I really, really wish you could pick a whole troupe as a character, because Yukigumi really owns my heart. So if you've offered any and want to ignore my character request to write about any of the Yukigumi 'siennes, please feel free! I love them all, but I'm most familiar with the troupe starting in roughly 2006 through the present.

Regarding Kimu & Tonami, I love them both, and would love to see a good friendship fic, maybe dealing with sillyness at rehersals? I can see Tonami as trying to be somewhat of a restraining influence on Kimu's crazyness or something like that. Or maybe in TMS together? Or really whatever as long as it's friendship-y and fun. Maybe some friendly teasing flirting, but nothing shippy please.

3. Robot Unicorn Attack - Any
Tongue-in-cheek existential angst please! Why must the unicorn run? Who create him (or her?)? Are the Fairies really there to help? And who put the damn stars in his/her path?

If you've been reading this letter confused as to what I'm talking about, you probably got matched here ;) I really have no further details than what I put in my sign up, because just the existence of Robot Unicorn Attack fic is going to make me happy. I'd like to be at least a little tongue in cheek because I'm not sure I could wrap my brain around a completely serious RUA fic, but feel free to prove me wrong!
palmedfire: (CURSES!)
So I have discovered Robot Unicorn Attack.

I would just like to say [ profile] flower_ballet, [ profile] wottie I hate you both so much right now! Now I'm never going to get anything done ;)
