Apparently there are requests for particular types of fan fiction, as part of a thing called Yuletide, in which people request stories set in particular worlds — specifically worlds that don’t ordinarily draw a lot of fanfic attention. Did you all know about this? The Yuletide FAQ says:
What is Yuletide?
Yuletide is an annual fic exchange for rare and obscure fandoms. Participants sign up to write a story of at least 1,000 words in a fandom someone else has requested. In return, they receive a story of at least 1,000 words in a fandom they have requested.
Isn’t that interesting? I had no idea. I could not possibly write in response to Yuletide prompts — I really do not do short fiction, not to mention that I find it really impossible to capture the proper voices from someone else’s work. But Marie Brennen can and does. There are links to her stories from Swan Tower.
Everything from Wheel of Time to Romeo and Juliet — quite a range.
I am not familiar with the Wheel of Time series, but Tybalt’s problem in “Nothing But One of Your Nine Lives” is certainly not one I would have expected!
Anyway, you might enjoy these.
