Hello, dear Yuletide Author! Thank you for being willing to write a thing!

Fandom: Shadow Unit
Characters: Any

I love Shadow Unit a lot, and part of what I love about it is how the different members of the team see each other. They are very interesting, very different people, and they work together under extreme and demanding circumstances, and I am fascinated about the teamwork and what each of them has to do to make their team work -- and, sometimes, to survive their team as well as helping their team survive. I want to see how they deal with feelings of belonging/not-belonging. You can go anywhere you need to go with this, as long as you've got two (or more) viewpoints that have different takes on the same things.

Bonus points for doughnuts and team dynamics, and strategies and tactics relating thereunto.

Also, Frost fascinates me, so if she appears somewhere in whatever you write, I will bliss. Doesn't have to be her POV, but anything that gives a hint of how she handles things and how others react to and deal with her will make me very happy.


Fandom: Arcadia, Stoppard

I'm hoping for a fic from the POV of the staff of the Croom household. Comedy, drama, whatever -- I will take anything, as long as it's backstairs commentary.


Fandom: Birdhouse In Your Soul - (song) They Might Be Giants

This is a song that's one of Juan's and my "our songs." This request is a long shot, but... can you write me a polyamory-positive fic from this song?

To do it properly, one looks at the picture first, comes up with a caption, and only then does one turn the postcard over to read what everyone else has written and to add one's own caption at the bottom of the list. This is one of a series. Original post and explanation is here.

(Sorry, if you go directly there you'll see the captions for the first one, because that's how cut-tags work. If you want to see all of these without spoilers, click on this, which gets you all entries tagged with "Snarky Valentine's Postcard Tea" and doesn't show what's behind the cut-tags until you tell it to.)

OK, long ago I was grumpy about Valentine's Day for reasons that may or may not have to do with once being broken up with at a nice restaurant on the day. So I decided to do something about that, and what I did was to host a little tea party where lovely picture postcards were passed around the circle, and we all wrote captions on the back of them.

To do it properly, one looks at the picture first, comes up with a caption, and only then does one turn the postcard over to read what everyone else has written and to add one's own caption at the bottom of the list.

I'm going to put some of those here. If you want to do it like we did it, look at the image link first, invent your caption (if you like -- we were allowed to pass if we couldn't think of one we liked), and then look at the list of captions and add yours in the comments.

(This will be a lot of posts. I'll use cut-tags, but also I will completely understand if anyone feels overwhelmed and wants to drop me from their reading list until this spate of foolishness.)

And with that, esteemed readers, I give you the first one, which is a particular favorite of mine:

And that's how it works. I'll tag all of these Snarky Valentine's Postcard Tea for ease in finding them.

(And I'm smiling now, because those were some fun times.)
