Yuletide Letter 2014
Archie
schwarmerei1
Dear Yuletide Writer,

I am so happy you're mine! Now that we've gotten the slightly awkward fact that I already adore you for writing me fic out of the way, let me say a few things about what I like in fanfic.

Honestly, I shall be happy with anything. So if we matched on something that you've had a nascent idea about already, gosh -- please just write me that fic! I'd be delighted to know that your plot bunnies were happily munching carrots, rather than you having to slog through something for the sake of my preferences.

There is very little that squicks me out. I like just about everything from explicit sex to completely gen introspection in fanfic. I don't mind reading about non-con or violence if it's built into a plot, or an exploration of character. Kill a character or three if you must!

I personally love f/f fic, but I am happy to read f/m, and m/m too, and any combination or number of the above. Or none of that if you want to explore a platonic relationship.

The Good Wife (TV)
Alicia Florrick/Kalinda Sharma
It will come as no surprise if you read my LJ to see that I ship the hell out of this pairing. Absolutely anything about them will delight me. And I mean that -- the two of them repairing their friendship, the two of them hooking up, the two of them sneaking tequila into their nursing home...ANYTHING!

Of course I am a sucker for the tragic angst of their relationship, and if you want to set to mending it -- by all means! The death of Will seemed like a perfect opportunity for the two of them to reach out to each other for instance. But I could also go something divorced from canon and completely fluffy that we never saw on the show like "Alicia and Kalinda in a supermarket."

This show with its ridiculously attractive cast ought to have more threesomes in its fic world. If you want to throw someone in bed with Alicia and Kalinda I'd be happy to read that too.

The Good Wife RPF
Archie Panjabi
I love Archie to pieces. So if you feel inspired to write about her, that pleases me! If you want to do traditional sexual tension RPF (resolved or unresolved) about Archie and any of her costars, I'll read it happily. If you want to posit your theory about what the hell happened behind-the-scenes to get Archie seemingly banned from shooting with Julianna Margulies that would delight me still more.

The Fall (TV)
Reed Smith/Stella Gibson
Now, before a delightful rumour spread about the interwebz about the possibility of some sort of...er...action between this show's fabulous protagonist and her go-to forensic pathologist coming up in Series 2, I had actually watched and really enjoyed Series 1. And I had noted several things that fogged up my slash goggles. The good Professor never mentions a partner, let alone a husband, when the fact that she has children comes up -- I found that INTERESTING! I also noted that Stella did not treat anyone as a peer, let along an equal, the way she did Reed Smith. Fundamentally I have been waiting since the 1990's to see Gillian Anderson mack on a girl, and the fact that there is a chance she will do so with Archie Panjabi is pure brain explosion material.

If you just want to write about a deepening bond between these two fascinating women, I respect you for it. If you want to smush them together like a sexually frustrated teen with her barbie dolls, I RESPECT THAT TOO!

What I'm trying to convey is that regarding this pairing, I am easy...very, very easy. Also, feel free to give Reed Smith a Christian name, or perhaps she just likes to be called "Professor" in bed?

The Marlows -- Antonia Forest
OK, I know I keep saying ANYTHING but I really do mean it with respect to this fandom. There's been several dozen marvelous fic prompts made during the readthrough that's happening at Trennels on LJ. Maybe one of those has lodged in your brain, if so -- please get it out and write it for me. Or you could just have your own idea about one of those characters that Forest only drew a few lines to sketch, but it seems like a vivid portrait in oil paint to you. If you have headcanon, I'll be pleased to read it.

For a general idea, one of the things I love about Forest's Marlows series is the intensity of some of the same-sex pairings. Of course, they aren't canon couples, but there are erotic overtones in some of those relationships in my opinion. If anything of that nature takes your fancy, please pursue it.

For a specific request, I really enjoy the friendship that Nicola and Miranda suddenly strike up and pursue together. I'd hope that's a bond that lasts beyond Kingscote Nick could use a friend who doesn't abandon her, and Miranda could use one who appreciates all her qualities (including her admiration of Jan Scott!) So if you want to write about Nicola and Miranda sometime past the end of the novels, that would be super. I'd also love one of the two spending holiday time at the other's home. Nicola living it up in West family luxury in London sounds gorgeous. So does Miranda having her access to a bath rationed at Trennels. I'm also very available for a fic where Nicola (having just read "Mask of Apollo") tentatively ponders or asks whether Miranda is "that way" inclined.

A final request, having just read "Peter's Room" for the first time, I am freshly heartbroken for Nicola's heartbreak over The Sprog's death. I assume at some point, someone will notice that she's still in bed until a normal time in the morning. Someone realising what has happened would make a wonderful ficlet IMO. Perhaps Rowan, or maybe even Ann?

Kalinda: dare we hope for something better than Season 5?

In the meantime (and it's actually come to this) why are our ladies wearing the same outfit?

OK, not identical . . . but what the hell?

Yuletide and "The Good Wife"
Archie
schwarmerei1
There's awesome news that due to a change in the eligibility rules for Yuletide, "The Good Wife" will most likely squeeze one more year in Yuletide! (Basically, if fewer than 70 fics are posted in the next 6 weeks we should get in without needing to quibble over cross-postings to AO3 and FFnet.)

I'm doing a post because I hope fans of the show will consider participating in Yuletide, then get in and nominate it so that we get a good list of characters to pick from! And while you're at it, nominate "The Good Wife RPF" too!

At the moment, I think my other nominations will be "The Fall", and Antonia Forest's "Marlows" novels.

Light at the end of the Kalicia tunnel? (Vaguest possible spoilers)

I had a twitter conversation today with Jace Lacob of Buzzfeed. And in case you're wondering how I know he's referring to Alicia/Kalinda, our twitter relationship goes way back...
[Spoiler (click to open)]
@televisionary: Incredibly fun cocktail party with The Kings + cast of @TheGoodWife_CBS The loveliest cast on TV and most criminally overlooked zbest drama.

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary Oh the questions I'd ask...

@televisionary: @schwarmerei1 There are developments on that front.

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary Jace...
I've been rewatching with friends. Alicia just found out about K&P. Today would be a good day for positive news!

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary That was a hint for a hint.

@televisionary: @schwarmerei1 I have nothing definitive but sit tight. There may be a light at the end of the tunnel.

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary If there is, I'll name that third kid I'm not going to have after you.

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary BTW, like @Kiki1788 I'll hope for some TGW trips to the non-shallow well in the future. (Although, I know you're busy!)

@televisionary: @schwarmerei1 @Kiki1788 Hopefully sooner rather than later. Plans are afoot!

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary @Kiki1788 Excellent!
The potential light at the end of the tunnel isn't a train that kills Kalinda right?

@televisionary: @schwarmerei1 @Kiki1788 Ha! I hope not.

@schwarmerei1: @televisionary @Kiki1788 You hope?
Do you know how many instances of dead people's shoes we found on TGW Rewatch? Right @FlorrickAssoc ?

@televisionary: @schwarmerei1 @Kiki1788 @FlorrickAssoc Let's just say that I would be incredibly surprised.

Thoughts anyone?

It's not exactly an update, but Jace commissioned this article:
Alicia And Kalinda Haven’t Shared A Scene In 30 Episodes

Which was rapidly followed by this incredibly idiotic response in EW:
It's okay for Alicia and Kalinda to be apart on 'The Good Wife'

Kalicia: the relationship so extraordinary it transcends the need for on screen depiction entirely! No really . . .
