This is my first year being all signed up for Yuletide, and I'm excited!

My first request (and incredibly unlikely, I know) is Kingdom Chums.

Truly anything to do with these characters (especially the Kingdom Chums themselves) would make me happy. Little David's Adventure book or animated, and/or The Original Top Ten. Humor and not taking seriously is fine, although I can't stand puns. While I'm not in the least attached to the religious part of things, it doesn't put me off either, so as heavily or lightly-to-nothing of that aspect as you're comfortable writing.

Or what about crossing over with any fuzzy sort of characters: Care Bears. My Little Pony. Bambi. The Wombles.

My other two requests are both sources by Jacqueline Lichtenberg.

Sime/Gen and Kren Universe )

I can't really handle... )

However I can skim past anything I'm unfond of, if I need to.

Thank you, writer, for whatever you choose to write! I am so very excited about getting a present of story!

(The exclaimation marks might give my excitement away. Possibly.)

Why yes, I have created [community profile] kingdomchums, a community here on Dreamwidth.

Perhaps I am not the only person on the whole internets who is fannish about this thing?

My interlibrary loan of the Kingdom Chums book Little David's Adventure arrived! I like it rather a lot.

Much enamoured of the title page (art is by one Janet Stevens).

Title page

The back cover copy is rather fabulous, and describes how the human children "meet Christopher, the princely lion of love, Magical Mose, the snappy-looking tiger of trust, and especially Little David, the Kingdom Chum of courage".

I like the description of Mary's "favorite stuffed animals—Christopher, her loving lion with the glistening blue eyes; Magical Mose, her snappy-looking tiger with his purple and white checkered bow tie and wing-tipped shoes; and Little David, her cute raccoon with sneakers and an orange and white checkered headband."

Little David's Adventure illustration

When the children meet the Kingdom Chums as talking animal characters, they've gained some clothing. "Christopher was also now wearing a long scarlet robe adorned with a heart of red and white checks." While Mose has gained not only a cape but a wand.

Christopher explains: "you have been chosen to ride the Kingdom Chums' Love Light"...

My favourite line:
"And a little child shall lead them," Christopher murmured to Magical Mose. The lion and tiger smiled knowingly at each other.

Yet more Kingdom Chums

Or, what happens when I search on WorldCat.

They look so happy on the VHS cover.

Also there was an audio cassette. Interesting that the songs are in an entirely different order. (Assuming the contents list is correct, but I can't think why they'd be catalogued in a different order than that listed on the item.)

Kingdom Chums art!

(Drawn in pencil on beige cardstock.)

Anthropomorphic Tiger and Lion

Marvelous Mose (in his policeman gettup from "Stop Before You Steal") and Christopher the Lion of Love.

Ever so slightly suggestive if you squint. I'm all for squinting, of course.

The ones you love

This resting sort of afternoon seemed a good one to put Kingdom Chums: Original Top Ten into the DVD player and enjoy the wonderful bizareness of anthropomorphic animals singing about the ten commandments.

And of course now I'm using character names as in the credits to adjust tags on the Archive of Our Own.

Perhaps someday there will be more than one Kingdom Chums fic on there!
