- YAGKYAS '12 Secret Santa Letter!
- October 14th, 2010
Hello! If you got my prompt, you can probably tell that this is my first year. But it's been fun so far.
Well, so, I requested Brad/Nate thrown into the universe of whatever anime you choose. (I gave a list to give you the idea, but really, if you're not familiar with any of those and you have a different anime in mind that you like for it, go ahead!) I guess what I really want to see is Brad, Nate, and the ensemble in a setting with slightly different (or slightly silly) rules, taking it completely seriously. I want to see how their cool competence and silent conversations help them overcome whatever adversity.
In a Brad/Nate story, these are the things I like to see. You don't have to include any/all of them, it won't hurt my feelings, but just to give you an idea:
those things I mentioned about competence/silent conversations
the two men being around civilians, who clearly don't understand their relationship
Ray can tell something's up with Brad, but drops it when asked and just raises his eyebrows in judgement sometimes
And something I don't like to see:
Can it be set somewhere that homosexuality/being queer is allowed? I mean, basically, that there's nothing like DADT and there will be no legal repercussions for their relationship. (Aside from a totally understandable superior/subordinate thing, where one might be coerced.) I don't like to see a queer person being anxious and ashamed of being queer, it make me anxious and ashamed with them. That's all.
Anyway, now you have the general idea. Don't worry too much about worldbuilding, don't worry too much about plot if you don't want to! Have fun.
