Hello, I hope you’re having an exciting Yuletide season so far ♥! I’ve always been very fortunate in that I enjoy a wide variety of character types and stories, and hopefully that will make me easy to write for. And, really, if you looked at the sign-ups and you already have an idea you really want to write in your head, please feel free to write that and ignore anything you find in this letter!

Starting out with the generals:

- I like gen, m/f, m/m, and f/f all equally. So if you like one more than the others please write what you like! I know the character selections for my fandoms slanted m/m this year, but honestly that was just because I didn’t feel like requesting “any” (there are a couple of characters I don’t necessarily like enough to ask for a fic all about them for each fandom), I wanted to make it easier to match, and I didn't want the letter to end up a mile long. I listed alternate pairings/characters for each fandom, and believe me when I say I wouldn’t have bothered listing them out if I wasn’t just as happy to receive them as the characters I signed up with.
- I also like all genres/moods equally. I like happy fic, depressing fic, gen world building, and explicit sex equally. Write what you are most comfortable with!

I don't have any triggers you need to know about, and I don't have much in the way of actual squicks either outside of what’s mentioned below (and quite frankly even those are almost never enough to actually ruin a fic for me), so you don't need to worry about that. When I say I like creepy/potentially creepy things like non-con or age difference, I like them regardless of the genders involved - m/m, f/f, m/f, f/m, whatever.

Likes:
- Loyalty characters - character's who’s lives revolve around the person they’re serving, and characters who are willing to die for each other.
- First times - either the first time two characters met, the first time several people acted as a team, the first time they got to know a teammate, or the first time having sex.
- H/C, including either balanced stories or ones that are almost all hurt or all comfort.
- Lots of creepy stuff, including non-con, torture, stockholm syndrome, mind-break, tentacles, etc.
- Also lots of not creepy stuff, like working up the courage to hold hands with your crush, characters being kind to people who aren’t expecting kindness, elaborate romantic gestures, characters being proud of each other, comedy, etc.
- Possession/lack of control - mind control, sex pollen, black mail, etc.
- AUs! Historical AUs, Mirror Universes, Vampire AUs, etc., with some exceptions listed below.
- Fics where some/all of the guys are girls (I like the girls to stay girls, though).
- People being stupidly hopeful and optimistic and sticking to their morals even in the face of incredible odds.
- Soul-bonding, huddling together for warmth, forced/fake marriages, cross-dressing - I’m super into most fandom tropes.
- Crossovers/Fusions.

Dislikes:
- Extremely underage sex, shota, loli, etc. Any character I’ve actually listed below is fine, just no… de-aging/setting it when they're kids and then having them have sex.
- Creepiness that makes no sense given the character. I like stories with evil mirror universe counterparts, or where nice people get possessed and do terrible thing, but not where a perfectly sweet character in canon turns out to have been a secret bigot or sociopath the whole time.
- Mundane AUs (for example: coffee shops, high schools, lawyers, hospital, etc.), with the very big exception that I like them if they’re comedy/super cute - for example, I’d love either a Fate/Zero Cafe story or something based on the Aldnoah.Zero Anthology story where Cruhteo and Yuki-nee are running competing daycares.
- Lifestyle BDSM AUs - normal BDSM themes are fine, and are in fact basically canon for some of these pairings, I'd just rather it not be a 24/7 society-wide thing.


And now for the fandoms themselves! WARNING: SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING.Collapse )


And now, if you got matched on a fandom you now bitterly regret offering and want to try another fandom instead of defaulting: I tried to link to all the canon I could! Aldnoah.Zero is a currently ongoing mecha anime, the first half (12 eps) is done and the second half won’t be airing until January. It’s meant to me a more “realistic” take on some of the genre’s tropes, although how much it succeeds in that is arguable. The ending of the first half ABSOLUTELY ENRAGED a lot of people, so you might want to spoil yourself before getting invested! Earth 2 is an ongoing comic series - it’s an AU version of the JSA, and the basic premise is that they’re rebuilding a superhero community to save the world after the first superhero community was wiped out. It’s starting to split into a bunch of different books, but it’s a pretty much self-contained in a 20-something series up until just right now (unless you want to do Huntress/Power Girl too, then it gets a little weird). Fate/Zero is a solid action/fantasy anime - a lot of people will tell you that you have to read the Fate/stay night VN first, you can ignore those people unless you are really, really invested in staying unspoiled for Fate/stay night for some reason. Premise is that seven Masters participate in a war for the Holy Grail by summoning seven Servants to fight for them. You can watch the 24 episode anime or read the 4 light novels - I would suggest the anime, the translation of the light novels can make it rough to read. Trinity Blood is about a humans fighting a vampire empire in a future that looks suspiciously like Renaissance Italy, and there are robots and combat nuns and basically every singe sci-fi/fantasy trope you ever wanted shoved into one series. There’s a 24 episode anime, an ongoing manga series that’s around 15-16 volumes right now, and a series of light novels. Warning: the author died, so the light novels kind of end abruptly. The anime ending leaves a lot open-ended but functions as an actual ending. I live in constant fear that the manga is going to be cancelled, but it’s still hanging in there even if we only get it for half the year!

Okay, so the plan was to get this up by Monday morning, not so late Monday night it is technically Tuesday for which I am very sorry, but here we go!

First, I think it's important to point out that while I picked characters for each of my fandoms, the choices were fairly arbitrary. If I've offered you an alternative option to the characters requested, I did so because I really, really want to read that alternative too - none of them are something I would be disappointed to get instead of the characters I ~officially~ requested. I just picked characters because I didn't want a situation where some poor person was matched to an "any" request and then got crushed when my letter was like "Oh I love all of the characters in this fandom except that one character you love and voluntered to write, please don't do anything with them!" (Honestly, I'm not even sure that is possible, but it seemed possible?) But I did want to include the alternatives, because I figure the more options the more likely there is to be a good match to your inclinations as a writer!

Or, alternatively, sorry if there is way too much crap here and it's overloading you! In that case just feel free to ignore this whole letter. Everything here is just prompts and suggestions for possible fic ideas, and if you already have a solid idea it's probably not necessary, and I will not be offended in the slightest if you ignore it. Honestly, this got freakishly long, but I realize I'm new to LJ and I was worried the empty journal might freak some people out so I thought it would be best to over-share rather than under-share.


So, letter under the cut - some general likes/dislikes, and then just kind of throwing out a bunch of possible ideas for the particular fandoms.Collapse )


Also, if you got matched on a fandom you now bitterly regretted offering and are now desperately looking to one of the other fandoms: Alphas is a fairly short TV series, only 11 episodes, and a somewhat more "realistic" take on the super hero genre. It took me a few episodes to get invested, but I personally think it's one of the best shows Syfy has ever done, and it's certainly my favorite. Green Lantern has a massive body of canon, but honestly you could probably pick a fairly small bit of the canon and write a good story based on that - just reading Secret Origins, or watching the live movie, or watching First Flight, or watching the Scorn of the Star Sapphire episode of Batman: the Brave and the Bold could probably give enough canon to write a story that would make me happy (really, I am super easy on what canon you want to use), and of course wikipedia is the best friend of anyone trying to get a grasp on superheroes. Justice Society of America... is amazing but is also kind of unavoidably a clusterfuck of canon and legacies and converging timelines and some people aging and other people not aging and characters getting split into a mother/daughter combo and really it is probably not a very good choice to catch up with quickly. If you want to try it, JSA (the title that's just the initials) is probably the best place to go for that, I think it's about eighty issues and all in trades. Sucker Punch is probably the easiest, being a two hour movie, although a lot of people have really strong opinions on it so it might not be your cup of tea, but if you like pretty girls and a shifting world and a certain level of creepiness it's a great option.

Anyway, I hope all that wasn't too intimidating or anything, and that you have a good time writing ♥

So I kind of belatedly realized that everyone else has a separate graphics comm because everything is less cluttered that way. So: bluelighthope, for all your eventual graphics needs! First goal: fix the damn side banner, I thought it was supposed to be 160px but it really needs to be 170px and now it's all wonky :/

ETA: Okay! Now we have a Daenerys by Phil Noto banner because I could not find a Rachel Pirzad cap I liked. That is cool though, since I think the Dany banner fits the journal really well! And also combines my love of ASOIAF and comics, so it probably tells people more about me.
