katherine: The Alot (a shaggy brown beast) wearing a santa hat. Words: I LIKE YULETIDE ALOT (yuletide)
I liked the commercial with sleep and wake animals that got nominated as a Yuletide fandom this year. (The internet supplies a video of a dog watching the commercial.)

My Yuletide assignment:
Just Can't Fall Asleep (1434 words)
Fandom: Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Josephine didn't really think the butter would do much to distract Sleep from exploring and hiding, but it was worth a try. And it felt, a little, like involving Sleep in the move.

I got to thinking about the sleep and wake animals in other settings, and thus:
Motives (932 words)
Fandom: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Data & Ishara Yar
Characters: Data, Ishara Yar, Spot
Additional Tags: Wake and sleep animals, Set during "Legacy"
In a universe where the majority of humans have wake and sleep animals, Data meets Ishara Yar.

This is why one has multiple drafts of a story. I'm not sure what an away tea is (might be tasty with lots of sugar) but I meant away team.

From an Atlantic article I read of babies in incubators at Coney Island and fairs.

There's Coney Island Sideshows at Neonatology on the Web (which has the pleasing spare look of the twenty-year old website it apparently is).

That has me imagining Steve and Bucky seeing tiny babies at the 1943 World Expo.

Requested fandoms for [community profile] trickortreatex
Alice In Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Black Beauty - Anna Sewell
Blood Brothers - Russell
House Hippo (Concerned Children's Advertisers PSA)
Outlander Series - Diana Gabaldon
Valdemar Series - Mercedes Lackey

Fandoms and stylistic things )

Thank you!

Fandom: Solitude - Ursula Le Guin
Any Character

I'm fascinated by the society, and would be interested to read about any character (including Ekumen observers), or something about the past society, or a contrast of those, a mingling of legends or foretelling.


Fandom: Tailchaser's Song - Tad Williams
Any Character

Cats on quests, or doing their own thing, or the creepy Clawguard.


Fandom: Valdemar Series - Mercedes Lackey
Skif (Valdemar)

I've recently re-read Take A Thief and would be happy with a story that either goes with that idea of Skif's background, or with something spinning a different life based only on the hints in the Arrows trilogy. I'm most interested in Skif's years as a trainee, or before, rather than the happens of the Winds and Storms series.


Fandom: All Summer in a Day - Ray Bradbury
Margot (All Summer in a Day)

Some sort of happy future for Margot, or a change to the past that let her see summer that day after all.

I haven't seen the Lego movie and don't plan to see The Giver movie so my imagining is a little from the trailer I saw but mostly from visualising images from the novel, but I have this ridiculous idea that "Everything is Awesome" would work as the song for a vid.

We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me
We're all working in harmony

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome when we're living our dream

Have you heard the news, everyone's talking
Life is good 'cause everything's awesome
Lost my job, it's a new opportunity
More free time for my awesome community

I am getting excited about [community profile] invisible_ficathon

Among other items, I have nominated Bolt (the in-universe TV series) and the Higgley-piggley song.

The Higgely-piggely song is from Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson.

Higgely-piggely,
Path is so wiggely,
Time is past four.
Almost dead beat
On tired little feet;
No friendly door.

(The above is from a Puffins Books edition, translation by "Ernest Benn Ltd, 1959")
