Not sure if Yuletide will see any new records, but _coal is already turning out more posts than in the past couple of years.
And all that, just because I didn't get that shippy fic I wanted so badly that one year!

Imagine how different things could have been...

Worst request you've seen so far

(Anonymous)
The request in this one for fix-it fic of a real-life hate crime seems particularly tone-deaf: http://wickedwonder1.livejournal.com/71866.html

Clairvoyant Wank

(Anonymous)
Which fandoms do you think will produce the most entertaining output by _coal standards? Five minutes of hell versus childhood-destroying cum inflation?

If elyn hadn't left?

Re: Clairvoyant Wank

A dozen different permutations of "LOL Ichabod Crane Learns 20th Century Things", all of them completely indistiguishable from one another?

If HQ had gotten her fic.

I wish elyn had stayed.

Wow. I don't know anything about the movie or the RL incident inspiring it, but that would be like someone asking for fix-it for The Laramie Project.

Ie, not okay, and probably defeating the point.

/anon who is asking for fix-it in a totally fictional fandom, totally fictional, I swear.

Actually, I was referring to heavensqueen's comment when she created this post, but sure, we can talk about that topic too.

This was going to be my answer too. I didn;t even make it through a whole episode of Sleepy Hollow.

No offense, Sleepy Hollow nonnies. I used to watch Supernatural so I am not entitled to cast a stone.

ichabod crane learns firsthand about cum inflation

sounds good to me

OP

Me too. I know I'm in a bit of a minority here, but I didn't think she, as a mod, was that bad (cult of nice on behalf of the mods as a whole, aside).

And now, especially, I wish she was still around.

The details of the case are pretty horrible, but suffice to say that your comparison is absolutely correct. It's because of assholes like this one that Calpernia Addams has to include the following disclaimer on her website:

Please, out of respect for my need to move forward, do not contact me about Barry’s murder or the movie, either here, via social networking sites or in person.

Thanks for offering the flat view link, mods! If it's not too much trouble, could you add a style=mine link too?

3 Ships

Apparently not running this year, thank god.

This is the new thing, I gather? At least allows you to select what OT3s you can write for, instead of requiring you to commit to any combination in the whole fandom.

Every time I get nostalgic I remember that she sicced yuletide comm on the recip of the gay bashing dragon fic and refused to ask bipagan to not threaten suicide over supernatural crossovers.

Re: Clairvoyant Wank

oh man, now I wanna see that. I haven't even watched the show yet.

Re: Worst request you've seen so far

Ehh, I think I disagree. If it's cool for people to write Band of Brothers fic in which Muck and Penkala are alive and well, it should be okay to write fanfic based on this movie too.

That is... so unfortunate, and I don't think I'm going to dig any deeper into it tonight.

RPF makes me feel kind of weird most of the time anyway (though I have seen a couple of not-at-all-creepy Yuletide requests that restored my faith in humanity) but that just seems to be taking it a little far.

I hope that fic does not get written, although I hope the requester gets another fic that makes her reasonably happy.

Your Dentist's Offers

(Anonymous)
So tell me Coalies: as a rule, do you and your dentist offer the same fandoms, completely separate fandoms, or some mix of the two?

I know some people contrive to not offer what their dentist is requesting and vice versa, but what about offering the same thing?

Re: Worst request you've seen so far

NA

I had to consult the Wikipedia about the film, since I'd never heard of it, and now I really, really wish I hadn't. How horrible.

Re: 3 Ships

(Anonymous)
Oooh, thank you for the link.

My dentist is very interested in a couple of threesomes.

Re: 3 Ships

(Anonymous)
They finally updated that com? *checks*

Re: Your Dentist's Offers

(Anonymous)
I mix it up, but my dentist doesn't offer anything that would make it obvious to people who know me that my dentist and I are associates.

Re: Worst request you've seen so far

(Anonymous)
I have to admit I've always wanted Alan Turing fanfic, but I've never felt that it was really appropriate to request.

Re: Your Dentist's Offers

(Anonymous)
Depends on how big the fandom is, and how happy we would be writing two fics in the same fandom.

Normally our offers are split up too, because my dentist and I really have very divergent interests in fic. I'm pretty sure the only thing we both love is Joss Whedon.

(Yes, my dentist and I are in the plural.)
