Hallo, fellow yuletider! Thank you for writing me a story!

I like emotionally intense reading experiences, family stories, passion, complexity, stories about good problem-solving and communication skills that nevertheless don't save you from life's complications, and stories about people trying. I'll give fandom-specific wants/dnws beneath; I don't have broad squicks to speak of, but some canons work for me in different ways than other ones do. I tend to gravitate to happy-ending stories, but I also enjoy fiction that is elegant, ironic, gothicized, or kinky in its cruelty.

specific fandom/request deets:

Hamilton, Hamilton/Washington )
Earthsea, a story about Tenar's life as a young woman on Gont )

Oh my god someone on ffa just mentioned the future possibility of Hamilton productions WITH ALL FEMALE CASTS. Oh my god. Hamilton and Burr as dueling antagonistic lesbians. Hamilton and Washington as a female mentor/female mentee pair. "My dearest ... Angelica"!

some things about Hamilton:

-the George Washington/Alexander Hamilton drift compatibility is increasingly my fave. I could ship it or not but the intensity is delish. "Meet Me Inside," with the "Son/I'm not your Son" refrain: nnrgh. The overlay of Hamilton's voice over George Washington's farewell address in "One Last Time," his writing in his commander's mouth, saying the farewell that he himself finds nigh-unbearable: ffwahhhhppdp. Pwahhhd.

-the characterization of Eliza works really well for me sometimes and frustrates me at others. I think this has something to do with my dislike of romantic jealously/infidelity narratives as a whole. And I really like that there's none of that with the sisters! "Burn" calls up both of my reactions: the crescendo on "you FORFEIT all rights to my heart/ you FORFEIT your place in our bed" is glorious and invokes my Thing about honor, but the way that she opposes his public career and private life irks me, and the ending of the song always catches me off-beat, because when she says "I hope you burn" I always expect it to finish "mine" - I'm burning your letters, I hope you burn mine. But her final apotheosis as historian always gets me where I live.

-"Hurricane" might be my fave track. "She was holding me/ we were sick and she was holding me/ I couldn't seem to die"
