Dear Femslashx Author,

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the time and effort that you are willing to put into making my gift :) I’m very excited for this fest and I hope you find this letter to be at least somewhat helpful/inspiring. I’ve included my general likes and dislikes as well as specific preferences and prompts for each fandom I’ve requested.

GENERAL STUFF

Pairings/Sex/Ratings:
Likes:
-I’m good with het, fem and slash for background/secondary ships.
-All ratings up to R.
-A focus on the romantic/emotional aspect of a relationship and some semblance of a plot/point rather than just sex.
-Unrequited (or secretly requited) pining.
-Complicated relationship dynamics, love triangles, relationships that take some effort/time to work, loving each other but because [insert reasons here] not always being able to be together/communicate those feelings, etc in this vain.
-UST. Eventually resolved is probably better than not, however, not a must-have.
-Conversely from the above – romantic partners who just can’t help but adore each other.

Dislikes/Rather-Nots
-Threesomes/moresomes and polyamory.
-Incest (unless specifically asked for or canon).
-Parings with large age disparity (over 15 years) unless specifically asked for.
-Pedophilia (please keep minors in sexual relationships with adults 16 and over; if both partners are teens 14-15 is ok if treated appropriately).
-NC-17 and PWPs
-BDSM, omegaverse, and most kink. (NOT included in this: foreplay; bantery/lighthearted roleplay for the purposes of foreplay; preferences for a certain sexual position, fascination with a partner’s physical trait, such as, e.g., preferring redheads or virgins or younger partners or being fascinated by someone’s shoulders; rough/aggressive/desperate sex or outside-of-bedroom inequalities that transfer into the bedroom, even though there may be pining down of wrists or some other element that could be considered a kink or part of BDSM.)
-Foot fetishes (I know I said liking specific body parts is fine, but ah, feet are the exception).
-Humiliation (both sexual and not)
-Non-con/rape (dub-con that leans toward/ends up as consensual is ok).
-Mpreg; cross-dressing; genderbending/genderswap.

Genres/Themes (and such):
Likes:
-Angst, drama. (Generally, I’m ok with dark!fic too, but please don’t try to use this as a challenge to see how many angst/dark tropes you can fit into a single fic. I enjoy dark themes and things like character death don’t bother me, but if it feels like it’s just a marathon of horrible things happening with no light anywhere to be seen…that might be a little too intense for me.)
-Humor is fun too, but I like it more as an element in the story rather than a story that sets out to be funny first and foremost.
-Hurt/comfort (primarily for m/m).
-LOYALTY KINK! Themes of loyalty in general.
-Fluff, banter, cuddling/snuggling, kissing, general adorableness (and adoration!).
-Well-rounded characters, characters with emotions/sympathetic motives; the “other side of the story”.
-Politics, intrigue.

Dislikes/Rather-Nots:
-Crack!fic, parody.
-Radical AUs that subvert the universe (eg: genderswaping the cast, setting a modern fandom as a fairytale, turning a historical fandom all Sifi, etc. This includes stuff like A/B/O and inserting magic/supernatural elements into a non-magic/supernatural universe).
-Crossovers (not counting specific crossover requests of course).
-Character bashing; intentional OOCness.
-Humiliation; any sort of glorification of bullying, or bullying being excused/condoned in the narrative (this includes things like victim blaming, etc).
-Narrative implications that “sex = love” or that romantic partners HAVE to have sex to have a “valid” relationship or to be “really” in love with each other.

Dear InShipping Author,

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the time and effort that you are willing to put into making my gift :) I’m very excited for this fest and I hope you find this letter to be at least somewhat helpful/inspiring. I’ve included my general likes and dislikes as well as specific preferences and prompts for each fandom I’ve requested.

GENERAL STUFF

Incest-Specific Stuff

I’m very picky about the incest ships I like and mostly when I ship incest it’s brother/sister ships or cousincest. Incest isn’t a kink for me in the sense that adding incest to a relationship is actually more likely to turn me off the pairing than make me ship it more. It’s more like…I have ships and sometimes they happen to be incest ones. So please, don’t write any “extra” incest ships into the fic, just the ones I request.

What I DO find interesting about incest in ships specifically, is that it’s another type of “forbidden” relationship with all the baggage that that brings. It’s not that I don’t like fluff in these relationships but it’s almost always going to be fluff put under specific social constraints. It’s like a secret relationship on steroids. It’s also an interesting vehicle for exploring boundaries: where does platonic love end and romantic love begin? Does it matter? To the people involved, to society? Is only sex taboo or do we, as a society – or any given society – police relationships further in determining what kinds/extents of attachment is appropriate? (For example, if siblings don’t have sex but experience an intense attachment which outweighs their attachment to their romantic partners would they be judged for it, would it be considered weird or inappropriate? Why?) My God, I’m starting to sound like a uni sociology class paper prompt, but seriously, I’m not trying to set you up for issue!fic of any sort. I just think these are interesting themes/questions which could be explored in a story and what I find potentially interesting about incest.

Overall, I do think it would be hard to completely get away from at least the forbidden aspect of the relationship – the confusion, guilt maybe even, or just the angst of knowing that no one will ever understand. On the other hand, there is also the UST rout, the one where the characters are in a very close sibling relationship and perhaps in the eyes of others they cross some lines, but THEY don’t think they’re doing anything wrong because their attachment is primarily emotional. The sort of oblivious pairing.

(I think I have one Jaime/Cersei prompt which subverts all of this by being like “assume their relationship is acceptable” but in all other cases, the above applies.)

One more thing: I see these relationships as emotional attachments first, which might cross lines into sexual territory. Not the other way around.

Dear FicMountain Writer,

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the time and effort that you are willing to put into making me a wonderful gift :) I know I seem to have a lot more ideas for some fandoms than others but I would be ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED to receive fic in any of the fandoms I asked for. If you’ve ever read a yuletide letter of mine, this will probably seem very familiar (as most of it is C&P from there…)

GENERAL STUFF

Parings/Sex/Ratings:
Likes:
-SLASH
-Het and gen
-love-triangles
-All ratings up to R
-A focus on the romantic/emotional aspect of a relationship and some semblance of a plot/point rather than just sex.
-UST. Resolved is probably better than not, however, if "not" is more appropriate for the paring than that's great too.

Dislikes/Rather-Nots
-Femslash as a major focus (I don’t have a problem with it, I just don’t ship fem in these fandoms)
-Threesomes/moresomes and polyamory
-Incest (unless specifically asked for)
-Parings with large age disparity (over 15 years) unless specifically asked for
-Pedophilia (please keep minors in sexual relationships with adults 16 and over; if both partners are teens, 14-15 is ok if treated appropriately.)
-NC-17 and PWPs
-BDSM and heavy kink (scat, watersports, bloodplay, necro, etc)
-Humiliation (both sexual and not)
-Non-con/rape (dub-con that leans toward/ends up as consensual is ok)
-MPreg
-Cross-dressing and genderbending/genderswap
-Bestiality.

Genres/Themes (and such):
I love angst! I LOVE hurt/comfort. Especially of the m/m variety ;) Fluff and mush are lovely. Cuddling/snuggling and adorable!fic are great too.
I definitely don’t mind things like Dark!fic and character death.
Humor is fine too. Give me adorable banter or – where appropriate – family and/or friendship fic and I’m sure you’ll put a smile on my face :) However, I’m not the biggest fan of crack!fic/parody. AUs of the “what if” variety are fine and I do enjoy well-done modernizations of historical (set pre-1850) fandoms, but not so much radical AUs that subvert the universe (genderswaping the cast, setting a modern fandom as a fairytale, turning a historical fandom all Sifi, etc).

I like well-rounded characters. Give me characters that have motives and feeling and don’t look like a stereotype cardboard cut-out. I really enjoy complicated relationships and relationship dynamics, especially if there is fodder for that in canon. I also realize that characterization is fairly up to interpretation but just don’t give me something obviously intentionally out of characters. PLEASE don’t bash any of my requested characters.

I find glorification and normalization of bullying (especially of children) very upsetting. Please don't excuse this sort of behavior. I don't think it would come up in these fandoms/requests but just in case.

While I think I should totally give Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers a shot, I also kinda wanna get a "German Perspective" thing going. Here's a bit of a list. Not sure where I could find the movies yet. Wouldn't wanna buy the DVDs, though, becasue I'd run the chance of it being like with Dresden - no English dub and all in German. SO ANNOYING. I hate subtitles - I end up reading the entire time instead of watching the movie :/ Anyway...

The Edelweiss Pirates
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
The Downfall of Berlin: Anonyma
Swing Kids
Enemy at the Gates

I heard that last one has pretty major historical inaccuracy issues though. But, still, a Soviet-Germany stand off that's not entirely from the Russian/Soviet perspective? Yes, please :)

Day 7 says to share something non-fannish about yourself.

I dance.

More specifically, I am part of my school's intercollegiate club ballroom dance team. I've been doing dance for about a year now but my partner and I only got together this fall and I had my first comp a few months ago. We compete in Newcomer and Bronze and did ok. I'm sure we'll only improve. As a kid, structured dancing was never really my thing -- my mom tried to put me in ballet and jazz and even hip hop and I quit all of them sooner or later. But this has really been great. I think I've finally found an interest/hobby outside of fandom and even writing in general - a sport/active activity to go out and do and I'm really putting effort and enthusiasm in it. It's really a good feeling :)
alley_skywalker: (Default)
Day 4 says we get to ask for some fannish stuff, like a wishlist. So,then, ok, I'll bite: these are things I'd love to get anytime for any reasons at all. Hey a girl can dream.

1. Anything War and Peace. Seriously, only three exceptions: Nikolai/Marya, anything with Andrei Bolkonski, any historical real people (Napoleon, Kutuzov etc). Everyone else is fair game in pretty much any/all paring combinations. I just really want War and Peace stuff :) (HUGE bonus points for anything with Dolokhov, Helene and/or Anatole).

2. Hurt/comfort fic or art for any of the following Harry Potter parings: Severus/Evan Rosier, Scorpius/Louis, Scorpius/Lysander.

3. Ok, I don't know if this counts as fannish, but you know the Meyton Townhall music from Pride and Prejudice? I don't know what sort of dance that is, but it sounds like some sort of fast-end quadrille. I'd love recs for similar music :)

Day two and all caught up with [community profile] snowflake_challenge .

So, now we're supposed to rec a 3 (or more) fanworks, and we are urged to make them things that are not likely to receive lots of attention -- small fandoms, rare parings, new authors, etc. I decided, for the sake of the challenge, to step away from fic and rec three fanvids. These aren't the flashyest vids EVAH or anything, but they make me happy every single time.


В полшаге (Half a Step Away) by VlLensky
Bednaya Nastia (Poor Nastia) - Vladimir/Mikhail
It's simple but lovely and seeing these two slashed reminds me EXACTLY why I spent so much time watching this soap opera of a show -- the boys are beautiful and the vid does a great job in capturing their eternal angst.

With All of my Heart
by cffc
Brideshead Revisited - Charles/Sebastian.
This is one of my favorite, if not most favorite, Brideshead vids. It's simple but adorable and sweet and so true to these two and their obviously epic love :)

BIS by kzero666
Russian Pop RPF - Vlad/Dima
Basically slash for the duet BiS. They were pretty big in Russian RPF/RPS fandom a few years back, true, but they've gone quite after the group split up and, honestly, like no one knows about them in English Speaking fandom anyway lol. This video is the first vid I saw for these two and I think this has something to do with why I love it so much - first love and all that.

So.LJ is down, has been for a few days. I know some people have been able to get on from time to time, but I haven't at all. It's frustrating. Not enough to make me leave the place or anything, since huge outages aren't actually that often, but when they do occur, I go through withdrawal. So, to lessen the effects at least a tad, I'm posting here! (Yuletide has been revealed but I'm gonna wait until LJ is running again to do a post-reveals post.)

First Day of [community profile] snowflake_challenge   .

SELF RECS :D Basically, a time to be Narcissistic lol. So, anyway, here are my top-10 faves of my fics. They're not the most popular ones but they're the ones I feel are the best (or that I just like most...) In alphabetical order by title:

Before the Storm (Harry Potter; Antonin/Bellatrix, Andromeda/Ted, Lucius Narcissa, Rodolphus/Bellatrix)
Long and plotty. Covers my headcanon for the Black sisters and their relationships in the couple of years directly before the First War. I'm generally happy with the writing here and finally I've also produced something with a real plot lol.

Behold (Star Wars; Obi-Wan/Anakin)
This one is older. It won an award for Best Poem in the Saga category on TFN in the 2008 awards. Technically, it can be read as gen if you like (I mean, I did post it on TFN lol). I really do like this one. I remember I wrote a huge chunk of it in my head in the shower...yea my mind works like that lol.

Dear Agony (Harry Potter; Scorpius/Lysander, Draco/Ernie)
I like my writing in this, that's all I can say.

In Love and War (Harry Potter; Antonin/Pansy, Draco/Pansy)
Like Before the Storm there's all that length and plot to be proud of. I feel like I rushed it a bit at the end, but it works, it really works. This one covers the Second Wizarding War. As for the Antonin/Pansy thing...it's mostly UST so no Lolita-esque awkwardness lol.

My Better Half (Eugene Onegin; Onegin/Lensky)
Again, I really just like my writing in this one. And the sex scene managed to not be terribly awkward.

Our Beautiful Disaster (Harry Potter; Severus/Evan)
Another one of those fics that's just solid. I like the writing and the pacing. Pacing, I think. is the one thing I struggle with.

Seasons (Harry Potter; Lily/Alice)
I wanted to include a femslash fic? I like the imagery here most. It's quite solid, IMO.

Reasons (Harry Potter; Severus, Regulus, Barty, Evan, Antonin, OCs)
I've tried to write the whole 'why the FWW DEs became DE' type thing a few times, but I think this is the best all around. The boys represented here cover all the different types for me -- the younger son who is willing to please, the half-blood who hasn't had a good experience with muggles, the son of liberal Purebloods who wants to be proud of his heritage but is made to feel ashamed plus doesn't have enough raport and and support at home, the happy Pureblood who has only seen the worst of muggles and is honestly convinced that the world's evils come from them, etc.

The Color Red (War and Peace; Dolokhov/Anatole)
Yes, I like my writing here, it's my OTP and it's just a fic I feel all warm and fuzzy about.

Whisky in the Snow (War and Peace; Dolokhov/Anatole)
I wrote this at 6AM after pulling an all nighter, Despite that, it came easily and the writing is good. Aside from the poem, this is the shortest piece on this list, but I think that's part of it's strength -- packing lots of emotion into a small amount of text.

I also wanna give an honorable mention to my You and Me series. War and Peace; multiple parings but mostly slash. I wouldn't call this an overall best sample of my writing per se, but the epic proportions of this (relative to my usual) is still impressing me. I'm hoping to get the 3

So, if I had to change my (RL) name and it HAD to be an anagram of my current (RL) name, like for a pseudonym or stage name or something, the most coherent thing I could come up with -- given that I only thought about it for like 5 minutes -- is Alley Rosan Daxkott.
