Dear Yuletide Writer,


I should say right off the bat that my prompts are only here for guidance, not as anything you are obligated to write for me. If you have your own idea for the pairing that fits with my likes, it’s more than okay with me if you want to write that.


Also, feel free to mix and match my prompts with different pairings and fandoms. If it’s somewhere in my letter, it’s something I’m okay with receiving for any canon or character.

*I know homophobia/biphobia would/does exist in some of these canons, but I would vastly prefer if you just took the route where homophobia/biphobia is completely a non-issue and is just as readily accepted as heterosexual relationships.


**To expand on my thoughts about bi erasure, I would prefer that if you are writing a same-sex pairing where one or both of the characters was presented with heterosexual inclinations in canon (ie, interest in the opposite sex, opposite sex love interest, etc.) that they be presented in the fic as bisexual rather than gay.

I'm writing a fic right now that's somewhat challenging in its characterization, and it got me thinking: how do you tackle characters dealing with emotions or reacting to situations they've never come close to encountering in canon? Or them consciously choosing to change who they are as a person?

For me, my fic is a Riverdale/Archie Comics fic for the FP Jones/Kevin Keller pairing called "Second Time Around." It has FP Jones, a rough and tough gang leader in canon, now trying to step up in his role as a newly single parent, as well as trying act more like a gentleman in order to convince Kevin Keller to stay with him. It can get difficult, because the situation in itself requires FP to change from how he is in canon into someone who's more gentle and caring, so it can very easily stretch the willing suspension of disbelief.

And now I'm curious! How do you, as a writer, believably keep a character as themselves while writing about them acting differently than how they are in canon, or willingly choosing to act unlike themselves?

Earlier this year, I had some thoughts (here, here, here, and here) on how the Riverdale TV series, based off of Archie Comics, treated Kevin Keller, who debuted several years ago as the franchise's first gay character. I was not pleased by the show's treatment of him, as the portrayal seemed rooted in dated stereotypes and unwilling to go beyond them, so it was with some trepidation that I picked up Riverdale #4, an issue of the associated comic book which focuses on Kevin.

 I just finished rereading a couple of old "lost in a snowstorm/must huddle for warmth" types of stories, and it made realize just how much fondness I have for those tropes. 

Now, I'm curious to hear what types of hurt/comfort plots other people like?

 Well, with my rant on Riverdale's treatment of Kevin Keller out of the way, I suppose I should give my general opinion on the show.

Going by the first episode, it's okay. I'm not particularly impressed with it, mainly because of the treatment of Kevin, but I'm interested in it enough to give it another chance. If you're interested, the third episode airs tonight at 9pm EST on the CW.

Spoilers below!

 Spoilers and rant ahead!

Let me tell you about a character in Archie Comics named Kevin Keller. He is my favorite Archie Comics character of all time, with Reggie and Betty tying for a close second. Introduced in 2010 as Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin was welcomed to Riverdale with open arms, quickly becoming close friends with both Jughead and Veronica. He quickly became president of his class, and one of his first acts was to build a 9/11 memorial on the school grounds. A military brat who'd travelled around the world, Kevin was interested in journalism and comic books, ran track, frequently engaged in eating contests with Jughead, entered a Jeopardy-like game show on national television, worked as a lifeguard, and counselled a former bully of his who was going through a rough time at home.

Very few of his stories focused on being gay, with even fewer centered on homophobia; his sexuality was acknowledged and 99.5% of the time simply accepted without second thought. No one significant really thought it was any big deal that Kevin Keller liked boys. In Afterlife With Archie (the zombie apocalypse AU), while Kevin does endure some homophobia from Reggie, he's also a badass archer who routinely takes out zombies with just a bow and arrow.

That is to say, the Kevin Keller of the comics is a far cry from the catty gay stereotype who appears on Riverdale for the sole purpose of being the gay BFFs with whatever female character is standing nearby.

 Combating writer's block at the moment. When you're trying to write a certain scene but it's just not working, what do you do?

 Several months ago, when looking for podcasts about nostalgic cartoons, I stumbled upon this podcast about G.I. Joe. Despite knowing nothing about the franchise beyond the Channing Tatum movie, I decided to give the series a shot, and I'm definitely glad I did.

What is G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero? Preppies of the Apocalypse put it best in her review of the episode of “The Gamesmaster”:


“Usually at this point in one of these analyses, I’d take a bit of a detour to give everyone some background info about the show, maybe a broad overview of the plot, perhaps a quick rundown of the primary characters. I’m not going to bother with that this time, because… look, it’s a cartoon designed to sell action figures to small children. There are no subtle plot nuances that are going to be too tricky for G.I. Joe novices to follow. Here’s all you need to know: The bad guys are the members of the terrorist organization Cobra, led by the power-mad yet totally incompetent Cobra Commander, and the good guys are the Joes, members of an elite military organization dedicated to taking down Cobra. It has a huge cast of surprisingly well-developed characters (more characters = more action figures), and while jingoistic American exceptionalism always makes me a little queasy, particularly when packaged as entertainment for kids, the show is a hoot.”
