 Dear Yuletide author:

Thank you so much for the offer! :D

I like to have the maximum amount of information possible when I write to a prompt, so I'll do my best here, but if you want more room to maneuvre or if my suggestions stump you, feel free to chuck any/all of them over the side and do your own thing. I'm not a picky fic reader: any pairing, any rating, any genre, any kink, any premise. No squicks whatsoever. If you liked the canon and characters enough to offer it/them, as far as I'm concerned, we have enough in common.

If you'd like to poke around and get a sense of me in general, I'm [personal profile] petronia here, on LJ, and on AO3. Also minimoonstar (non-fandom, mostly music/movie stuff) and genufa (fandom, mostly Hannibal meta right now) on Tumblr.

Aeon Flux: I rewatched the series about a year ago (never having seen the whole thing back in the day), and was really taken by the rhizome of concepts -- so to speak -- represented by Trevor and Aeon respectively: his fascist autocratic techno-utopian shading into capital-R Romantic idealist shading into uptight class president and science club dweeb of the highest order, and her tender cynical trolling anarcho-terrorist meets 90s slacker existentialist refusnik who is nevertheless the cool burnout girl in the leather jacket who sits in the back of the class and scares all the squares. And the way the queer/kink cuts orthogonal to the whole dichotomy. Essentially they're both D-types who think the other guy won't give in, but really what they would have to do is let go of the rope simultaneously. ...Or you could write the high school AU, I guess. The beauty of the canon is that there's no canon.

Only Lovers Left Alive: someone finally made the vampire movie 17-year-old goth me wanted to see, and it was Jim Jarmusch. As stories about vampirism and immortality go it's wonderfully optimistic -- it holds out the possibility that people can care for and be interested in each other not only for a lifetime, but beyond the span of multiple human lifetimes -- that interpersonal relations have that much intrinsic value. And art, and books, and music -- and Kit Marlowe! -- and the fact that on a macro time scale Detroit will almost certainly be a thriving city again. In other news Adam is exactly the kind of loveable miserabilist asshole who could live in Detroit for who knows how many years and never think of going to a rave. This is another one where you can go wide, I guess: send Adam to hang with Jack White or tell the story of how, uh, Eve and he got to be friends with Kit Marlowe.

Fatal Frame (2014): I expected: cheesy but entertaining j-horror based on video games of same name. I did not expect: Catholic schoolgirls driven to madness and death by the demonic power of lesbianism and a great dark-ambient soundtrack. So that was a trip! I would be interested in a sequel to the movie, whether that be Michi's <s>lesbian</s> adventures in her photography BFA or further occult encounters/tie-back to game canon mythos/further down the Otsuka Eiji rabbit hole. Alternately, a prequel about events/relationships immediately preceding the film -- Aya was at that school for years, surely all the girls didn't fall in love with her in their senior year? Alternately, a prequel about THE NUNS HAHA OH DEAR.

Monument Valley: The Islamic art/Escher orrery/nesting jeweled box of musical tones aesthetic of this game left me alternately soothed and laughing with delight. I will leave the narrative focus (or lack thereof) up to you: what I would like is something that reproduces -- in words, natch -- the wordless emotion of the thing.
