Dear yuletide writer,

Wow, thank you so much for offering to write a story in one of my crazy canons! Feel free to ignore these words — I love seeing how other people think about my favorite fandoms, and I love seeing interpretations that are different from mine (some of my favorite fics are the ones that made me look at things in a new way).

In random order: Preiddeu Annwn (The Spoils of Annwn); Church Going - Philip Larkin (poem); The Instrumentality of Mankind - Cordwainer Smith )

Consuming canon: I have two small-canon poem fandoms this year: "Church Going" and Preiddeu Annwn." Either of these would take about five minutes to consume. Cordwainer Smith are short stories, and just a couple of them would probably suffice to get the general idea, but they are certainly quite a bit harder to find. I'd very much recommend We the Underpeople as the best introduction that's easily available in the US and cheap. If you happen to be in the UK, my favorite Smith anthology is The Rediscovery of Man. (I'd recommend "The Dead Lady of Clown Town," "Under Old Earth," "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard," and "The Ballad of Lost C'Mell," or some subset thereof, to get a sense of it.)

(Edited 10-30-14 because I really do like all gender-variety of friendships, and to say happy endings and dark endings are both great!)
