yuletide!  
First, I am so excited about this, I cannot even tell you. I hope you're excited, too, or at least feel like you have something you can work with.  The last thing I want is for you to feel crazy about it, or stressed (unless you're the kind of person who thrives on that sort of thing- I, dear reader, am not). I will be really intrigued with whatever you do in any of these fandoms- I think there are a lot of interesting stories to be told, even outside my prompts, so if there is a story that has been occupying space in your head, please, please tell it. I want to read it.

I certainly didn't mean for you to feel hemmed in by any of my prompts- especially those first two. I wanted to give you a sense of the kinds of things I wonder about in these fandoms, so if any one part grabs you, please run with it, and go where you go, and don't feel like you have to hit every note. Obviously, I'm plagued with wanting to know what happened next-  what kind of people do the Powers kids become? How long does it take before Jon is comfortable running his own country? Is Kay still a cop? Is Mike still a PI? What do they think about their time on the squad? How does Bruce get away with it? There are so many fascinating ways to answer those questions (and so many other questions to ask, so don't feel bound in that direction, either). If the spirit moves you, I would love to hear what you think.

I keep trying to come up with the kind of story I like, but I think what I would like more than anything is a story in these fandoms-  the joking and awesome movie references of the President's Daughter-verse, Tortall's magical, medieval politics, some of the quietly observed, absolutely true moments Homicide turned out on a regular basis, the grim, gritty, confident Bruce Wayne we saw in Batman Begins.

So. Have at it! Please do have fun. Write the story you want to write; I will love it. Promise.

PS: Nuts and bolts type stuff: I'm not sure of my plans for the day of the reveal just yet, but it shouldn't be more than a couple days before I get to read it. I was serious about liking gen, het, and slash all equally. If you have questions and want to route them through the Yuletide mods, I will answer them as quickly as I can- probably a couple of days there, as well.

PPS: Thank you so much. This is going to be awesome.
