Saving these 2 wishes for another year  
Two of my smaller fandoms didn't make Yuletide this year, so I'm saving those wishes for another year. Putting this here as a reminder to myself :)

American McGee's Alice
(Characters: Cheshire Cat)

I love everything about this version of the Cheshire Cat; loyal yet cautious and focused on his own survival; cunning and unlikely to do anything overly foolish or "brave".

I've played both the original game and the sequel, and am interested in seeing what happens to the Cheshire Cat and the rest of Wonderland after the second game. How has it all changed? Does the Cheshire Cat have a new place or is his world even more chaotic than usual? What is his relationship with Alice like? If you ship the two of them and want to include the pairing, I'm perfectly fine with that.

As for Wonderland vs the real world... I will admit to being on team "Wonderland is real", mostly because I'm such a fantasy geek. I prefer to keep the surreal tone, with Alice being the only one who can actually see the Wonderland elements of the world around her, but that she actually disappears from the real world when she goes to Wonderland. Wonderland characters being able to interact with other real world characters...well, it could be interesting to see some sinister real world character tapping into Wonderland somehow (via Alice?) to take something from it/threaten it somehow. Could make for an interesting plot.

And speaking of plot, I greatly enjoy both the action/adventure aspects as well as the mystery/horror aspects of these games. It being Yuletide and all, I do wish for a happy-ish ending (as happy as these games ever get), but I have nothing against dark and disturbing elements in the plot itself. Maybe the aformentioned human outsider finds a way to get to Wonderland and starts wrecking havok? Maybe unexplained murders start happening in the real world and the Cheshire Cat isn't sure if Alice has truly gone over the edge and started killing innocents? Maybe it's the Cheshire Cat who gets himself into trouble for once and Alice has to help him out; I am a big fan of role reversals.

If you haven't played the second game, feel free to go completely AU after the first game and invent your own "what happened after Alice got better"-scenario. I'm a big fan of AUs in general actually, so if you want to go completely off from the original setting, be my guest! Just avoid high school and sports team-AUs; they're not really my cup of tea.

A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman
(Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson)

This world is so wonderfully dark, but with just enough hope in it to not make me despair. If anyone can outwit the ineffable, it's Sherlock Holmes. I'd love anything set in this AU (because it is a Homes fusion AU crossover and no one can tell me any different) be it before, during or after the story. How did Watson and Holmes meet in this world? What have their lives been like? What are they planning right now? What will their lives be like when (if?) they defeat their enemy? What do they think of Moran and Moriarty?

As you might have guessed, I'm a Holmes/Watson shipper. Been shipping them since I was tiny, so if they're not your cup of tea please don't pair them up with anyone else. Them being super close friends is also great!

Oh, and if you like Irene Adler, I'd love to see her included somehow. She is one fantastic lady and she needs more 'screen time' everywhere!
