Secondly: There is not a single throwaway fandom on this list; if some prompts are less detailed than others it's mostly because I haven't seen/read it in a while, not because I'm less excited about it. (ETA: This is especially true this year! I'm in the middle of finishing Nirvana in Fire, so that's what's fresh on my mind, and I know that entry is much longer than the others. Don't feel like it's my One True Fandom or anything like that!)
And finally, optional details are, of course, optional. Don't worry if none of these prompts do it for you and you decide to write your own thing! Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected.

Yes, I realize I'm late to the party. But holyyyyy crap is it good.
Is there, like, a new-to-the-fandom guide out there somewhere? I don't think I'm interested in fanfic, but links to great videos, parodies, remixes or whatever would be much appreciated.
I just read all three books in three days and I just. cannot. get over how much I love them. THEY ARE SO GOOD. I just-- Breq. And Seivarden. ahhhhhhhh my babies, what am I supposed to do now that I'm finished???
(Seriously, if you haven't read these-- GO. NOW. If you have read them, come talk to me!!)

When the producers of The Watney Report had contacted her about doing a final wrap-up show on the one-year anniversary of the Ares 3 mission's return, Annie'd nearly thrown herself off a bridge. She'd thought she was done with this shit.
[Or, seven times they lied to the press.]

I've been back on the Hermes for twenty days now. And holy shit, is it amazing! I'd forgotten how awesome sex is!
See also: food, but seriously. Sex!
I'm pretty thrilled at how well both of these have gone over (especially considering how far outside my wheelhouse the second one was to write). Both my recipients seemed to enjoy, and I got a pretty decent collection of happy comments, so yay! I call this Yuletide a win.
*Yeah, that's 28k total. I'm currently lol'ing hard at how worried I was that I wasn't going to hit the required word count...
