taabe: Tipsy sylph with a cat on her shoulder (Default)

I woke up this morning with a thought and handed it to my room-mate as she headed out the door — when someone vids Yuri and Victor to Halo, you're gonna tell me, right?

And then the Snowflake Challenge folks gave me this — In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for — a fannish wish-list of sorts. Are we sharing a wavelength?

And I would love that vid, seriously, because who wouldn't. But as I think about it, what I'd put on this wish list is a vid to music Yuri himself would listen to. Because I'd like to know what his music would be. Or fic that knows where he grew up, that can help me to feel and see his hometown, his background, conversation around the dinner table, and what it's like for Victor to spend time with him there.

Also anything at all about Karim and Raheen from Kamila Shamsie's Kartography, because I love the book so — because of their deep connection, the kind of intimacy that shares thoughts and grows over years, and their curiosity and laughter, and the ways they play games with the world, play with words, find magic in street names and histories and in the back garden just by being awake to it. Because they begin the book by finding a mummified cuttlefish. Because I want to walk around Karachi with them and just listen to them talk.

And third ... sometimes I write song lyrics, because sometimes stories come that way, and if anyone wanted to, I'd love to have music for them, especially for Turn Around. (It's a Check Please tribute in Bitty's voice.)
