wisdomeagle: (broken fourth wall)
Dear chocolatier,

Thank you so much for writing or drawing for me!

I requested a wide variety of pairings. I'm offering a handful of prompts for each of them, but feel free to mix and match (or to ignore). They're meant to inspire, not to limit. Feel free to visit #dear author: i am delightfully bizarre for past letters.

A list of things I like: AUs (mundane, canon divergence, or otherwise), bdsm, crossovers, darkness, existential angst, fluff, glitter, hair, intertextuality, joy, kidfic, lemon (take it in what sense thou wilt), master/slave, noncon, open relationships, petplay, queerness, roadtrips, sonnets, trivia, underage, Valentines Day, winter, x-rated fic, yesterday, zoos.

Do not want: Scat, sounding.

Okay what the heck I'm doing this. It's not like any of this is a secret to anyone who's read my fanfic recently..


Based on the community [livejournal.com profile] five_acts (check it out for more details!), we're going to have a week of indulging each other's favorite kinks, tropes, acts and pairings. We're onto round nine now! In a nutshell, what we do is:

+ Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks to read about. Check out this list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom of your post, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
+ Read other people's lists; the master list of lists is here.
+ Post comment-fic based on other people's interests.

Once you've posted your list, give me the link in the comments here so that people know how to find you.

Round Nine of Five Acts will be running from October 10th to October 19th. Enjoy!

Five kinks and several fandoms under the lj-cut. Kinks are explicit and pairings are the special hell variety. Welcome to my blog.

Dear author,

I am am delightfully bizarre.



Dear author: I am delightfully bizarre, or, seven years of ficathon sign-ups.

I am easy to please. I like porn, I like romance. I like humor, I like srs bsns world building or character studies. I like magical realism and AUs and tropes and ridiculousness and ridiculous premises taken absolutely seriously, wedding fic and curtain fic and kidfic and futurefic and nostalgia fic and crossovers and fusions.

I like femslash. A lot.

Maggots squick me. So does sounding (the sexual practice).

EDIT: A random list of words, phrases, and concepts that are exciting to me, should you want additional inspiration. They are all completely optional:

wings, glitter, princesses, letter-writing, a day at the beach, writer's block, lists, studying for a test, revisiting childhood memories, awkward holiday meals, chosen family, polyamory, tryptophan-induced sleepy snuggling, pillow fights, making dinner together, art projects, sewing, fabric, fancy dress parties, cooking/baking/potion-brewing, sharing a tiny bathroom and navigating brushing/flossing/getting ready for the day without bumping into each other, doing the shopping, animal companions, committed introverts and their partners who respect them, abuse of power, adults respecting children...

And kink/pornwise:
caning, spanking, discipline, cross-gen relationships, student/teacher relationships, did I mention abuse of power, biting, pain, petplay, ageplay, watersports, forced femme, strap-ons, awkward sex, oral sex, fashion-as-kink, classroom sex, outdoor sex, playing footsie in public, being so turned on they can't even make it to bed, awkward discovery by inappropriate parties (parents, children, students), characters who know what they want and are proactive about getting it, people being loudly bossy in bed



1. Baby-Sitters Club
Characters: Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Stacey McGill, Claudia Kishi.
Optional Details what are optional:

I love femslash. Any number of girls, any era, any combination, any rating.

I request BSC almost every time I sign up for a panfandom ficathon, because it is the fandom of my heart, 100%, since I was six years old. There is no childhood ruining possible -- write me any kink on the kink_bingo list, and I will love you. Write me fluffy fluffy G-rated handholding when the girls themselves are six, and I will love you. Write me pining and longing and unrequited love for straight bff, and I will love-and-hate-and-love you. Write me same-sex-marriage-is-legal-in-Connecticut-AND-California bicoastal weddingfic and I will love you. Write me AUs where they're princesses, nuns, pirates, or puppies, and I will love you.

I requested these four characters because they're the core of what I love about the BSC, but they aren't binding. Tossing in the other girl baby-sitters (Dawn, Shannon, Mal, Jessi, Abby) would be fine, and I ship Stacey/Charlotte too. Twosomes, threesomes, etcsomes are all fine. I OTP the best friend sets, but mixing and matching is also cool. I use the BSC tag for tagging all BSC babble, of which there has been a lot over the years. Not particularly interested in het ships in this fandom.

2. The Cat Ate My Gymsuit - Paula Danziger
Requested character: Barbara Finney
Optional details what are optional:

I read this book to pieces as a child.

I'd love anything about the compromises Ms Finney makes and the ones she's unable to make (for example. Ms Finney is a lesbian or bisexual woman, but chooses to closet about that so that she can continue to teach and share feminist and progressive values with her students -- but any direction you want to take that would be fine). Or anything showing Ms Finney interacting with Marcie (including, but definitely 100% not required, femslash).

As it says in the optional details. Not particularly interested in het ships in this fandom.

3. Discworld
Requested character: Esmerelda "Granny" Weatherwax
Optional details what are optional:
Things I'd love: a witches adventure, with any set of three (or an awkward attempt at a coven of a different size). A headological piece about Granny Weatherwax at any era in her life. Granny acting on her own to do what's Right. Granny acting on her own and not doing what's Right. Granny/Nanny femslash. Granny/Tiffany femslash. Granny trying to wrangle witches who insist on femslashing when they should be focusing on their responsibility. Something darkly humorous. Something straight-up completely ridiculous. Etc.

Again, as it says in the optional details. Explicitly stating that Esme/Lily is okay. Not particularly interested in het ships in this fandom, particularly for Granny Weatherwax.

4. As Time Goes By
Requested characters: Jean Pargetter, Lionel Hardcastle
Optional details what are optional:
Jean/Lionel was one of my very first OTPs. Anything about them, any rating, from any era, would be delightful.

This show gave me a permanent kink for long-separated lovers reunited, so the nostalgia longing pining thing hits me deep in the gut. I love this pairing because there's that bittersweet piece with the present-day relationship in which there is happiness and joy together. Not particularly interested in pairings other than this one, but if you want to write Lionel as a woman (cis or trans) that would be fine.


Thank you so much for writing for me! If you are unsure about anything, questions can go through the mods or through [personal profile] hermionesviolin, my bff, who knows me with a knowing that's true.

Dear [community profile] femslash12,

Hi! I have a houseguest right now and a chronic spoons issue, but I don't have anything too additional to say. I love femslash of all kinds! Dear Author, I Am Delightfully Bizarre is my Dear Author tag and covers ficathons for the past several years; my general likes and dislikes haven't changed much over the years. (Nor have my specific feels about fandoms.) I'm easy to please and difficult to squick. I will be delighted with whatever you write for me.


ps: I know that almost-blank Dear Author letters aren't terribly helpful, but basically, if you are wondering, "Is x okay?" the answer is yes. I promise.

Dear Yuletide author,

Thank you so much for signing up to write in one of my fandoms! I hope you will enjoy rereading, rewatching, or relistening to one of these sources, or that you'll discover something you'd never heard of that you love! I'm so happy that you'll be writing for me!

Pinch hitters and Yuletide Madness fairies, thanks for stopping by! :)
under the cut cos it's massively long! )
Happy Yuletide!

Something to do while waiting for Yuletide assignments! \o/

So, I'm Ari, I'm a lesbian Christian, I've been in fandom since forever and I like all sorts of wacky things, as evidenced by the fact that you may well be staring at my request in horror going "INCEST? REALLY?"

So, requests are:

Dear Yuletide Author,


Wee decapitated person is so happy you are writing for me that HANDS ARE IN THE AIR IN GLEEE. As I write this, sign-ups haven't even opened, yet I already know that you are out there, my Wondermous Yuletide Author of Wonder.

... and now sign-ups are open, I am all signed-up. I already pimped RPF - Cry Cry Cry on the Yuletide comm official pimping post, and people signed up to write it! Maybe you are one of them! If so, thank you!

If you're writing for one of my other fandoms, yay! Thank you! I would be SO HAPPY to receive any of these requests that I will FALL OVER on Christmas morning. I will be NOT ABLE TO FUNCTION I will be so thrilled.

First, hi. My name is Ari. I'm a lesbian. I'm a Christian. I've been in fandom since 2003. This is my third Yuletide.

I like het, girlslash, boyslash, poly, incest, and gen. I like BDSM and all kinds of kink, genderfuck, crack, wingfic, magical realism, worldbuilding, thinky fic, and theology.

I don't like homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, racism, sexism, ableism, classism, anti-semitism or ageism. I really hope that won't be a problem with anything you write but just, yanno, throwing it out there.

Now, on to the specific requests.

folksingers! )

In conclusion, THANK YOU! I hope you are excited and not daunted by at least one of my requests, and I hope you have or develop a really awesome plotbunny that you enjoy writing as much as I know I will enjoy reading.

If you have any questions about my tastes or preferences, you could ask a question through the mods, or you could ask [livejournal.com profile] hermionesviolin, partner in crime, who's sure to know.

Happy Yuletide! Thank you! <3<3<3

I got my [livejournal.com profile] femslash08 assignment! *spins* I know what I want to write, I think! (and I have FIVE OPTIONS!) Now to go see about (re)absorbing the source.

Meanwhile, if you have been assigned to write for me, here are some things I like:
+PWP. Kink as appropriate to the characters. Fisting. Genderfrell. Cross-dressing. Empty, meaningless but totally hot one-night stands. Long-term relationships. Best friends become lovers. Sleepover parties. Party games. Costume parties. Hurt/comfort where one character is mildly ill and her lover makes her chicken soup. Crossgen pairings. Teacher/student kink. Creative storytelling. Stories about artists. Stories about families. We Just Don't Talk About It. Highly structured stories (e.g. a set of ten drabbles, or based around a theme). Interesting formats (e.g. letters, diary entries, grocery lists). Stories that mimic the linguistic and emotional tone of canon.

I kind of think my Buffyverse (no comics canon please!), Grey's, and Ugly Betty requests speak for themselves. There are lots of pairings I like, also, genderqueer characters are awesome. By Joyce/any I really mean any. If you want to write incest, that's okay; if you want to write cross-gen, that's okay, if you want to write her with someone closer to her age, that's okay; if you want to write another pairing I listed, that's okay too. Obvs.

In HP, yeah, McGonagall/Hermione is my OTP. Per the rules, no NC-17 while underage. That said, anything you wanted to write would be okay with me. Long and plotty would be awesome, PWP would be awesome. Explicit teacher/student would be awesome, but it's fine if that's not your bag and you'd rather they were older. EWE is fine; epilogue-compliant is fine.

Peanuts: Mmm, yeah. I read a shippy arc and I decided I needed fic. Any way you think you could swing Peppermint Patty/Marcie would be terrific. (PS note the genderqueerness of "sir"!)

Notes on a Scandal: What I love about this canon, in two words, is JUDI DENCH. And Barbara Covett as played by her. Seriously, any. Sheba, Jennifer, the woman from the end of the film, an original character, a crossover character from any fandom we happen to share. Obviously canon suggests that such a character would be significantly younger than Barbara is, but if you wanted to write like, backstory where she's involved with a schoolfriend, or frontstory where she finally meets someone closer to her age, that would be okay too. Mostly just BARBARA. Why isn't she real.

Things I do not want so much: Character death, noncon (dubcon is fine), mutilation, scat/watersports, background Draco, background Spike, random transphobia, random homophobia (if you deal with them, that's different; throw-away lines are not funny, do not want).

ps: thank you for writing for me!

pps: (to borrow a meme) If you really need help figuring out what I might like, [livejournal.com profile] hermionesviolin or [livejournal.com profile] alixtii are sure to know whether something is thumbs up or thumbs down.

I got my remix assignment.


Now I'm looking at all these lovely stories and going, what do I want to read first?

Also, [x] cracks me up. Will reveal when authors go live.

Dear Remix Author,
Have fun! If we matched in the Buffyverse, well, yeah. I suspect you'll find something you can work with. If we matched in Firefly, I hope you like girlslash or can work with gen. If we matched in SG-1, there's a little of everything with original team. If we matched in SGA... yeah, about that. I hope there's something you can work with. Have fun, in any event. I look forward to reading what you come up with! :)

(And my original assignment was REALLY NEAT too and I'm kind of tempted to write that one too! You know. In all my spare time.)

Dear Yuletide writer,

I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, "What kind of sick freak is my recipient, anyhow? Who requests Baby-Sitters Club het?" (Yes, I am sure that is the squickiest thing I requested. Yep.)

Okay. So. I'm Ari, and I'm a polyfictional Christian lesbian who's a fan of cross-gen and has Interests Not Suitable For LiveJournal. I'm a gigantic dork. I love fiction of all kinds. I'm a theology student. I'm a femslasher but didn't request any femslash this Yuletide. I bring my own subtext. I'd love it if you brought yours too. I love these source texts like squishy things and hope you do too. Thank you so much for volunteering to write, and I hope you have a blast reviewing some source material and writing something that you enjoy. Except for the one restriction noted in my sign-up -- no NC-17 Anne of Green Gables fic -- everything goes, including: kink, incest, boyslash, girlslash, het, three or moresomes, character death, background pairings I didn't request, [ETA] genderbending, genderplay, genderfrell, or any variation thereon[/eta] -- you shouldn't write these things if they don't appeal to you, but if that is the way the story moves you, feel free.

Mostly, I would love a story that in some way demonstrates love for the source -- I have great big litcrushes on Ann M. Martin and Father Greeley and Lucy Maud because they've written these universes that I adore, that I can dive into again and again and feel like coming home, because they've created these characters who I love like family, who were part of my growing up, who were my solace and my escape from the real world. The sourcetexts aren't perfect and it's fine to acknowledge that -- it's hard not to write BSC pastiche that isn't a little bit of a gentle parody, I think, and goodness knows Greeley has some skanky race and gender issues -- but really, I love these sources. I love the worlds, the characters, and I think the sense of innocence of all the series. (Yes. This is why I asked for slash and incest. I don't really get me, either.) I would love fic written in-the-style-of, and I'd love fic written in a completely different style so long as something in the writing remains true to the spirit of the texts, the important themes, the characters at their depths. I know that's hard to define, and don't worry about trying to figure out what I think is the spirit of the books. I'd rather you figure out what you love about the source and celebrate that in your fic.

[more specific tl;dr behind the cut]

[future-dated and comment-locked, as am technically away-from-LJ at the mo']

Dear [livejournal.com profile] femslash07 writer,

...I'm sorry.

As you've probably noticed, I am A Fan of cross-gen. But I'm also a fan of non-cross-gen, so when I've offered options (e.g., SG-1), feel free to go with what suits you. If you do write cross-gen, I don't care how old the characters are. Whatever makes you comfortable is fine; don't worry about me. Teacher/student while the student is still a student, more than fine, as is teacher/student when the student's no longer a student. As is BDSM in all its varieties. (I would prefer, however, that you not write rape or "realistic chan;" fandom is my fantasy place.) As are fraught and tense power dynamics between relative equals. As is romance and even fluff (especially, I will not lie, in the pairings with distinct age gaps. I'm fonder of fraught and sexy with Sam/Janet, Sam/Elizabeth, Lilah/Fred or Kira/Ezri).

Mirrorverse!Kira/Ezri, just to be clear, would be great, as would ourverse.

I'm not entirely caught up on Stargate: SG-1 and would prefer not to be spoiled past the end of S9. Please mark spoilers clearly, for my sake and for the sake of others.

Everything else I'd want to say would just further convince you that I Am A Horrible Person (which is quite possibly true), so stopping now.

Thanks for volunteering to write in one or more of my fandoms; I hope there is something that you'd love to write, or, barring that, something that in writing you come to love.

wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
Dear Yuletide Santa,

Thank you so much for volunteering to write in 1 (or more) of the fandoms I requested. You are an Awesome Person already in my book for sharing my taste at least a little. :)

I am easy to please and virtually unsquickable, and all the characters I requested fascinate me in different ways, so, really, any story about any of them would be great.

Obviously none of my requests really lend themselves to BDSM, kink, incest, underage sex, cross-gen*, or the like, but these are all things I am perfectly okay with in principle. If the story guides you, please, follow it, not me. Even the restrictions listed in fandoms #2 and #4 need not be set in stone if you have a really awesome idea that requires those elements. The prompt words in #2 should serve only as inspiration, as should the scenarios in #3 and the themes in #4. If you are inspired by something else, you should of course pursue that instead.

I am, as is obvious from my requests, a bigger fan of girlslash and het than of boyslash. Hopefully, within the parameters of my requests, that won't even be an issue.

ETA: I am a very big fan of female characters with agency. I don't care so much what choices they make -- the six women I requested across my four fandoms make some hugely different life choices from each other -- but women who choose their lives courageously and intentionally are awesome. Make of that what you will.

Death, life, unhappy endings, unhappy endings, any ratings (except as indicated in #2), holiday or non-holiday stories, spoilers for the entirety of all four canons, are fine.

If you have any questions, please ask. However, per the Yuletide mods' instructions, please do not ask me directly, but rather email them.

I can't wait till Christmas. YAY.


PS: My God is not male.

*[eta] Except for the one where the cross-gen is slightly canon.
