[heavily drawing on last year's letter...]
Thank you so much! I think the only thing I really want to emphasis this year is that Gen is my bag
. This winter is going to be my most stressful for many years, so warm and cosy Gen is my dream gift. All the family-feels and team-bonding!LOVES
: I love friendship fics, team fic, found-family feels, action, humour and crack!fic, and I have a competency kink a mile wide. I don't mind sad stories, as long as they don't have an unrelentingly miserable ending - I enjoy bittersweet and melancholy things very much. AUs are my guilty pleasure, especially fusions and 'fork in the road' type fics. Fics that fill gaps in canon, or fix plot holes are awesome.
While I love Gen, I'm more than happy to have a background romantic pairing in a fic, canon or not, I just prefer the fic not to be *about* the romance. DON'TS
: Romance, Zombies, bullying, slave or coffee shop AUs, graphic sex/violence, and I'm strongly emetophobic.FANDOMS:
I'll read in most of the fandoms I've written in (here's the list
and I also have some bookmarks
), and it's safe to assume that in all these fandoms, if it's 'team bonding', I will love it!
For specific fandoms:The Defenders: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, The Defenders
I love all the characters in all of these, both main and supporting, and I don't hate Danny Rand, but would rather he wasn't the focus. Colleen and Clare, on the other hand, are <3. As I very much parse the Jess & Trish relationship as familial, I'd rather not have anything with them as a romantic pairing, even in the background. I'm up to date on all the second seasons, and will have seen DD S3 by the time ITPE posts. Team fic is my jam for this fandom.Critical Role: Campaign One
I especially adore Percy and Keyleth's friendship, and Pike and Grog's. While I don't dislike them, I'd prefer something not Vax or Scanlan-focussed.MCU
I have a HUGE soft spot for Thor being both goofy and competent, but love all of the Avengers pretty equally, whether on their own or in any combination. Pepper Pots Rules is one of my favourite tropes. Because I'm all about the warm fuzzies this year, I'd prefer something pre-Infinity War, or a post-film fic where everything is okay again.Brooklyn 99
As well as team fic, I love the individual friendships, particularly Rosa & Charles and Jake & Terry. Captain Holt is my hero, so any fic centred on him is great.Rivers of London
I ADORE the books, but Peter Grant/Thomas Nightingale is a NOTP for me in fic. Any wacky adventure would be awesome, especially with Sara Guleed or Zachary Palmer.Sherlock Holmes (BBC or ACD)
I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of Sherlock, so would love case-style fic or Sherlock & John friendship fic set in that time period. I'm not crazy about S3 onwards! Anything set in ACD-era canon is wonderful.Doctor Who (classic and new)
I'm pretty omniverous when it comes to The Doctor, but my favourites are Eight, Nine and Five. I love Martha Jones with the passion of ten thousand fiery suns, so anything centred on her is awesome.Star Wars: Original or Sequels, The Clone Wars
While I didn't always love what they did with her, Rose lit up The Last Jedi
for me, so anything focussed on her would be wonderful. But I love all the films, and all the characters, so anything warm and fuzzy would be awesome. I'm slowly working my way through The Clone Wars, but am loving it so far. Anything exploring the friendships there, I'd love.Sapphire and Steel
This is a tiny but passionate fandom, with some great episode-style casefic. Something weird and offbeat comes with the territory, and I'm happy for any and all supporting elements to be there too.
