A little belatedly, I just want to say that I'm THRILLED with my MTYG assignment. THRILLED!!! So thrilled that the thrillingness of it immediately obliterated all traces of the first assignment from my memory so I can't even report on the OMG trauma or lack thereof that it inspired. Well, I could open my email and have another look at it, but, dude, why would I bother when I'm so very otherwise occupied being THRILLED with my second and final assignment?

We'll just see how long that lasts, won't we ...

And if you happen to be my Santa, well:

Dear Santa,

I bet you thought I'd never get around to writing, didn't you? Well, pshaw. I may be slow, but I'm not ENTIRELY without manners.

Santa, dear, Santa, I do hope you're happy with your assignment. I'm a die-hard TrickyFisher at heart, but I'm going to be delighted with either pairing. The truth is, I chose Chris/AJ as my second pairing because a) Chris (CHRIS!!!) and b) I don't actually know that I've ever read a Chris/AJ story, and it just seems like a singularly amusing pairing to me. If it makes you want to run screaming into the night, though, and the idea of writing TrickyFish makes you want to get all stabby with horror, Lance/AJ would be a very satisfactory alternative crossover pairing.

If you want a few more hints about what I like and what I don't, keep reading. Otherwise, carry on carrying on and write whatever pleases you.

- I believe I said in my request that I prefer happy endings. That hasn't changed in the last few days. I don't mind the odd angsty moments here and there, but full blown angst-o-rama with no happy ending payoff would be hard to take.

- That said, I'm not a big fan of sap, either. Or copious weeping. Or multiple paragraphs worth of characters professing eternal love and devotion to one another. Or kids. Or puppies. (God, what a miserable cow I am.)

- AUs are fine, as long as the guys are recognizable as themselves. Alternate timelines, alternate realities = also cool.

- I ADORE stories that include all the guys (from N Sync, anyways, although if you're writing the crossover and not planning a long story, I'm quite happy with you just focusing on the pairing because otherwise WHOA. Lotta people to grapple with.) I love canon-based stories from any era, stories that involve miscommunication and misunderstandings, and stories where the guys are guys.

- Snark is my friend.

- Character bashing makes me sad, and I'd really prefer not to be sad.

- Did I mention how much I love snark?

Mostly what I love is that somebody--YOU!--is writing me my very own popslash story, and that's pretty much more important than any other consideration. Try not to stress (AHAHAHAHA!!!), and I hope you have fun writing. Or, if not fun, then a minimum of terror and bitter self-recrimination for having signed up to begin with.

Thank you, Santa, baby!

Oh yay for the glee of your assignment.

*hates you, just a little*

On the plus side are you up for beta reading a looooong trickyfish sometime in the next couple of days? Once I get the sex written *sigh*

Don't hate me!!! I can't help it if I lucked out like whoa. Which I totally did.

Is your assignment that traumatic? *pets you* Anything I can do to help? I can do the "buck up, chummy" thing, or extol the virtues of a pairing that makes you want to weep, or commiserate winningly.

A looooong trickyfish? Oh, twist my arm, why don't you? *rubs hands together gleefully* Oh, yes, the sex. *tries to blot out the many agonizing moments of sporkified terror spent writing sex scenes* I've always thought it would be helpful to have a stunt double to write those for me.

Send the story along whenever you're ready. How quick a turnaround are you going to need?

If you lucked out I am TOTALLY looking forward to SeSa now! *glees at thought of new snarky Sola fic*

My pairing is. Um. Well. NO. And currently my options are a little limited by time.

And given the way my life is working turnaround is not needed quickly. If I EVER get the sex going. *glowers at Lance who appears to be unremittingly toppy*

*loves on your icon*

I know it doesn't help, but I'm commiserating like whoa about your pairing of doom. If you want to vent via email, feel free. Right now lj is not an option at work, but I can still check email.

Dear Lance. That toppy little bastard. I've had the same problem with him on occasion. You just have to be firm with him. (So to speak.) You don't HAVE to finish the sex scene before you send it, you know. I'm happy to have a look at the unsexed version if you need to take a break from it. :)
