Dear Yuletide Writer:

First of all, thank you so much for signing up! We already have at least one fandom in common, which is the important part. It's like cake. Cake is my favorite part. I hope the rest of what follows is just frosting.

What follows is a a run-down of my likes/dislikes, favorite tropes, and some specific fandom discussion with sentence prompts. Use what you need to, but know that I know that ODAO. You're also welcome to stalk me online. I'm LadySilver on fanfiction.net and AO3, argentum_ls on DW and LJ, and argentum-ls on tumblr. I participate in a lot of exchanges and fests, which means I've thrown a lot of prompts out into the void. Should you see a prompt from a different exchange/fest that you'd like to use, go for it! (Even if it's already been filled).

Overall, what I like in a story is plot; that is, I want something to happen. Beyond that, the reins are pretty loose. I like h/c and whump, angst, drama, humor, casefic, action/adventure, and romance. I'm open to gen, het, slash, poly—though I do have some fandom-specific preferences, which are listed below. I love pairings and I also love strong friendship and (pseudo)parent-child relationships. Ratings from G to hard-R are great. Crossovers are fantastic, though not anything I ever expect. I prefer canon based stories or canon-divergent AUs, and I prefer third-person storytelling, though I don't care if it's in past or present tense.

Dear Trick or Treat writer,

Hi! Thank you for signing up for some tricks or treats. I'm so excited about the possibilities of this exchange and I want to encourage you to push the boundaries, in the spirit of the holiday. Below is all the info from my sign up. If you want more info or more specific prompts, feel free to browse my other exchange letters. If none of them inspire you, or you have an idea for something else you think I'd like, please go with what does inspire you instead. You can also hit up my ask box, which has anon turned on, or talk to htbtomas, who both knows my tastes and knows how to keep a secret.

I'm LadySilver on AO3 and argentum_ls just about everywhere else (if the underscore doesn't work, try a hyphen).

Most of what follows is geared toward fic because that's what I know. Art fills are more than welcome! I'm not fond of chibis. Beyond that, I welcome the opportunity to broaden my horizons.

In November 1995, the Tomorrow People Fiction List (TPFICT) was started. This mailing list served as the foundation for the online Tomorrow People fandom, running for over 15 years and leading to the creation of other mailing lists and discussion groups, webpages, a tremendous variety of fanworks, real life friendships, and even conventions. Although the list is gone now, its impact on Tomorrow People fans and fandom is undeniable. This prompt meme is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of TPFICT's formation and is open to all Tomorrow People fans, regardless of whether you were part of TPFICT or came into the fandom a different way.

I’ve been rewatching the last few episodes of The Tomorrow People (CW) and have decided that they really encapsulate my biggest problem with the show: too much plot and not enough character.

While the back half of the show feels really rushed to me, I’ll grant that this is likely because the the producers saw the writing on the wall and wanted to provide a complete story line, thus forcing them to compress a much longer arc into the remaining episodes.

That said, the problems to me go back to the first episodes, though they don’t start to get really bad until episode 6 or so (IMO). The first few episodes introduce the characters; these are my favorite episodes because there are solid interactions that don’t involve hitting, shooting, or otherwise trying to pummel someone. But then there’s the plot. The first episode alone introduces the TP, ULTRA, the shadow war, Jedikiah’s plans for TP extermination, and Stephen as a double agent. That’s a lot of material! By the fifth episode, we’ve seen multiple examples of people betraying or being betrayed by ULTRA, learned about the Annex project, and been introduced to a number of new characters. The pace only picks up after that.

The Tomorrow People as a concept are always about saving the world, often with the threat being fairly absurd, so I’m willing to suspend a lot of disbelief there. However, the threat of the Founder and the Machine were so convoluted, and required so much rearranging of the pieces as to who’s on which side at any given minute (and who’s involved with which other character at any given minute), that the show turned itself into a Gordian Knot of motivation.

I think the show would have been much better–and might even have been successful–if the producers had taken the same approach to it that they brought to The Flash and simplified the overarching plot and provided a lot more opportunity for the characters to just be.

Thoughts?

The Tomorrow People has been canceled. Again. This now makes it 5 or 6 cancellations total across every version of a series with that name. Naturally, I'm holding out for the new version we should get in 20 years, if the existing trend is anything to go by. I'm also going to harbor the tiny hope that this version gets picked up by some cable channel, provided they do some retooling. I do have ideas on that front. Perhaps I'll fic them someday.
