It's that time of year once again! And I am very happy to see some fanfiction for Christmas! I suppose I should start listing my demands requests....
I am quite partial to the Alexander Hamilton/Beatrice Whaley ship, but you can write about others as well. A crossover I would to see is The Dreamer/ Felicity (from American Girl). I fell rather nerdy for wanting it, but whatever! I would also like fic centered around Nathan Hale, particularly a back-story story. In regards to Hamilton, I would also like a back-story before he came to America, and/or how he met Beatrice. A cute story about the Knowltons would be nice too. :) 
  • A Northern Light Jennifer Donnelly
I'd really love to have a story about character's lives after the events of the story, particularly Mattie's transition from upstate New York to New York City. Some back-story on her family would be pretty awesome too. 
  • The Monstrumologist series - Rick Yancey
I love these books. I'd love to see how Lilly became a monstrumologist apprentice, and also some stories of Will and Lilly plain kicking ass. Some Pellinore would be good too. 

So, thank you, Yulegoat, whoever you may be. I anxiously await your goodies!

ETA: I made a thread in a pimping post full of info - http://yuletide.livejournal.com/995836.html?thread=11997948#t11997948

What were your favorite books as a child, and why?

My favorite books as a child were Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Little White Unicorn, Time Cat, Princess Academy, and whole bunch of other books. I was very much into fantasy and sci-fi as a child, as you can probably tell.

I haven't been on livejournal very long, but I do find it very fun and a great way to procrastinate. Stamping communities will do that to a person.

I'm an INTP(or INTJ, depends on the test), Analytical Thinker, and a Cautious Inventor - basically it means I'm a total egghead without a proper life to speak of.

Expect me to talk about history, literature, music, memes, and all sorts of odd things - things all over the place!

I'm also a writer - so expect me to post original work and fanfiction, as well as posting up story ideas, which you will be more than welcome to comment on and give help/constructive criticism on. :)

hu·mor·esque (hym-rsk) n
1. Music
A whimsical or fanciful composition.
[German Humoreske, from Humor, humor, from English humor.]

Humoresque (or Humoreske) is a genre of romantic music characterized by pieces with fanciful humor in the sense of mood rather than wit. Notable examples of the humoresque style are Schumann's Humoreske in B-flat major (Op. 20, 1839), and Dvořák's set of eight Humoresques (Op. 101, 1894), of which No. 7 in G-flat major is well known.
