aphrodite_mine: a woman makes a truly goofy face (random - jaye face)
Art and/or Fiction requested.

Likes: For the most part, what I want out of my fandom experience is not what is already doled out in canon. I'm generally fond of the various canon iterations of these characters and their relationships, so if a request seems to contradict that for you, I'd prefer AU or poly over cheating. I have a STRONG affinity for themes of domesticity, being kind and helping one another, replacement (being with someone because you/both of you cannot be with the person you really want to be with, being with someone while thinking of someone else), forced space-sharing scenarios like sharing a bed, cuddling for warmpth, or snowed in. Fake dating/fake married. I don't mind AUs that displace in time/space, but like to keep things like power and relationships at least close to the same. I like all kinds of women. Neurodivergence. Women holding their own, defending themselves. And cuddles. I like cuddles.

Dislikes: For UnREAL and Degrassi, anything is fine as long as content notes warn me. For Star Wars, The Office, and Crossovers, I would prefer to avoid graphic rape, disordered eating, self-harm, or graphic death.

Art-specific Notes (if applicable): I can give or take detailed backgrounds -- what I'm interested in are the characters. Please don't skin-lighten. I strongly lean towards not wanting NSFW art -- nudity/sex acts tend to make me uncomfortable. But sex poses while clothed are A+.

Additional notes and possible inspiration live at my dear author tag. I would be happy to answer any questions anon here, or through [personal profile] gloss or [personal profile] crossing_hades .

Star Wars: Jyn/Leia, Evann/Leia, Sana/Leia, Mara/Leia, Shara/Leia, Rey/Jaina Solo
  • force sensitivity and disguises!
The Office: Karen/Katy, Pam/Karen
  • pining and (maybe) future AUs!
UnREAL: Rachel/Quinn
  • just fuck me up
Degrassi the Next Generation: Fiona/Holly J, Fiona/Imogen, Mia/Jane, Paige/Alex
  • first love, first kiss, first time... second love, second kiss, second time
Degrassi: Next Class: Grace/Maya, Grace/Zoe
  • ace!Grace and everything being complicated
Crossovers: Ann Perkins (Parks & Recreation)/Rosa Diaz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
  • If you offered this, I trust you with my heart & soul

I am requesting both Art and/or Fiction, and as such I'm trying to include prompts that are friendly to both, but as the nature of language I'm sure some ideas will lend themselves more obviously to one form over another. Please don't let that discourage you. I would be happy to answer any questions anon on tumblr (I am aryannagiordan0.tumblr.com) or through [personal profile] gloss  or [personal profile] crossing_hades .

General Notes: For the most part, what I want out of my fandom experience is not what is already doled out in canon, though I do have quite a fondness for the various canon pairings I'm ignoring here. I have a STRONG affinity for themes of domesticity, being kind to one another, replacement (being with someone because you/both of you cannot be with the person you really want to be with, being with someone while thinking of someone else), sharing a bed, snowed in, and fake dating. I prefer to avoid graphic rape, disordered eating, self-harm, or death, but am okay with content notes alerting me first. I don't mind AUs that displace in time/space, but like to keep things like power and relationships at least close to the same. Some additional notes live in my dear author tag.

aphrodite_mine: two women in period garb face away from the screen. they are holding hands (tipping the velvet - into the sunset)
Since this feels, to me, like a very fandom space, I am starting a personal tumblr for stuff about mental illness, family, marriage, and kids. If you are so inclined, follow hotdogcrew.tumblr.com. I'll probably still update this, and definitely use it as my preferred space for dear author type content.

aphrodite_mine: two women in period garb face away from the screen. they are holding hands (tipping the velvet - into the sunset)
Spent more or less the last 24 hours way too upset about Arrow for my level of investment. I'm only watching Sara's episodes, but of course, that leads to growing attached to others, and... there's something about characters that the writers don't know what to do with (cough Ann Perkins) that triggers the sads in a major way.

Trying to combat the sads with the Rogue One trailer lead to tears. But happy tears? I expect the franchise is front-loading us with incredible ladies to make room for Han Solo and Boba Fett and blah blah whatever, but at least for now, I am a happy Star Wars fan.

I've been listening to a bunch of podcasts and wanted to update with a few more I'm really liking. Stuff You Missed in History Class and Stuff Your Mom Didn't Tell You are filling a void I didn't know I wanted filled. AFAIK the hosts are all white, cis ladies (basic research doesn't inform me differently) but the discussions about race and disability seem quite nuanced and don't take shortcuts where it would be easy to skip over details. Obviously, YMMV, and I'm new to these so there could be massive issues I just haven't hit yet.

I'm considering getting the entire set of the Paul F. Tompcast because I find PFT utterly delightful and his voice work gives me so much joy... but the entire show has background piano and... electronic blip noises that really make it a struggle to understand. (Its a cognization thing... my brain wants to jump to the tiny noises and forgets that there are voices communicating information.) Note to self: find more PFT podcasts without blips.

This post is all over the place, but I also wanted to put down in words how much I appreciate Brooklyn Nine-Nine's treatment of Melissa Fumero. Not only have they used visual obfuscation to allow her to have totally unchanged screentime while pregnant, but they went out of their way to let her be pregnant on the show without consequences! Obviously, this method can't work for all types of shows, but man. I appreciate it. Not that B99 is without problems (the big ones being disability representation and spirit animals) but it is because of things like this that I'm willing to stick around and see how they grow.

aphrodite_mine: (community - thumbs up!)
General Likes: Ladies! Neuro-atypicality! Relationships that don't necessarily hinge on sexuality! Everyday moments/domesticity! Character development! Lit/pretentious-fic (clarification: I don't consider it pretentious, but I've seen some authors self-label that way). Dialogue. Women holding their own, defending themselves. Cuddles. So many cuddles. Family drama! Family love, found family! Femslash! Incest! All permutations of canon!

One of the things I love most about these characters is how earnest they are. They care about their people/crew/droids and frankly don't care if people judge them for it. Even with Leia, who doesn't play up front with Han for the most part, all of that is stripped away with Luke or Rey. 

Hard lines: Please warn/note for rape, abuse, drugs, graphic violence, disordered eating. As long as they are noted, including them is fine. I just like a head's up. I really don't want to read any of these things in the Star Wars Universe.

If you have a question about any of my requests, feel free to ask [personal profile] crossing_hades  or [personal profile] gloss .

Specific Requests:

Leia Organa. Leia is one of my og fandom loves. I love her in the movies, in the EU, in the comics... all of it. Give me more. Special adoration for Force-sensitive!Leia. Beyond the below requested relationships, I love seeing Leia interact with ANY woman or nb character. Probably the only character that I would NOT like to read about Leia interacting with is Kylo Ren/Ben.
Leia Organa/Luke Skywalker. Possibly my greatest weakness. The only real stipulation here is that you keep them related. From another sign-up: "All of the adorable, trope adventures during classic trilogy times, awkward feelings, awkward boners... And if you want to go TFA here, I would LOVE to see them reunite, grieve, help each other pull through. Some found-family, co-parenting type future would also make me so happy!"
Leia Organa & Rey. Mentor/mentee, bonding over loss. Little moments of getting Rey acclimated to the base. They can be related or not for this prompt. 

Rey. REY REY REY. Literally a dream come true. I see Rey as somewhere on the ace spectrum, but if you see explicit sex things happening, I'm down with that too. I love the way she sees the world, and that tentative new interaction with people and trusting them. Probably the only character that I would NOT like to read about Rey interacting with is Kylo Ren/Ben.
Poe Dameron/Finn/Rey. From a previous sign up: "As long as everyone has freedom of choice, I am completely flexible about the arrangement of this V or triangle. I've seen so many headcanons that absolutely kill me with joy, but a few that I'm PARTICULARLY into: emphasizing age difference, Finn and Rey experience (x) for the first time, culture clashes, Finn and Rey don't understand why (x) is socially taboo/normal. Group makeouts, snuggles... it is all pure gold. PURE GOLD."
Finn/Jessika Pava/Rey. I am not entirely sure what I want from this, but I know that I want it! Any themes mentioned in other requests would be totally awesome here as well.

Hard lines: Please warn/note for rape, abuse, drugs, graphic violence, disordered eating. As long as they are noted, including them is fine. I just like a head's up.

Specific Requests: I would love character-focused shipping, more action-y case/fight shipping, family drama, femslash, incest, pre-canon, during-canon, post-canon for ANY of these.

Star Wars: Princess Leia (Comics) - Evann/Leia
I would love some trope-y cuddle-for-warmth/misunderstood-alien-custom type adventures. One of the things I love about the comics (and the YA novel) is that Leia actually gets some space to grieve and process her massive loss. If you're feeling really ambitious, seeing Evann pop up again in TFA-era would be awesome too!

Star Wars (Movies) - Han/Leia/Luke
For these crazy kids, I'd prefer sticking to pre-TFA timelines. Post-Jedi is cool, but I'd rather not get into what the next movie might cover. There's more than enough ADORABLE SHENANIGANS to go around. Trope-y things are more than welcome. What-if AUs are sweeeet. I'm pretty strongly a "Leia in the middle of the triangle" girl, but not opposed to some Han/Luke side action as long as Leia's into it. 
Star Wars (Movies) - Leia/Luke
I feel like this should be obvious, but you never know, so, I'm really NOT into AUs where they aren't related. Timeline can be before the reveal, of course, but... I hope that if you offered to write Leia/Luke you were down with it. ANYWAY. All of the adorable, trope adventures during classic trilogy times, awkward feelings, awkward boners... And if you want to go TFA here, I would LOVE to see them reunite, grieve, help each other pull through. Some found-family, co-parenting type future would also make me so happy!
Star Wars (Movies) - Finn/Poe/Rey
As long as everyone has freedom of choice, I am completely flexible about the arrangement of this V or triangle. I've seen so many headcanons that absolutely kill me with joy, but a few that I'm PARTICULARLY into: emphasizing age difference, Finn and Rey experience (x) for the first time, culture clashes, Finn and Rey don't understand why (x) is socially taboo/normal. Group makeouts, snuggles... it is all pure gold. PURE GOLD.
Star Wars (Movies) - Rey/Female Resistance Fighter
Specific characters I would be excited to see Rey bond/talk/cuddle/kiss with: Lieutenant Connix, General Organa... anyone else who we see briefly but don't know much about (unless you novelization! Break out any of them!). I'd also be into a more OC-style resistance fighter. Someone with a very different background would be preferred -- maybe someone who is confident in areas where Rey is uncertain or uncomfortable.
Star Wars (Movies) - Jessika Pava/Rey
JUST FUCK ME UP. I don't know. I am so here for anything. ANYTHING. Well, except maybe coffee shop or high school AUs. No, that's a lie. High school AU would be my JAM. ANYTHING. (Including any combo of Finn/Poe/Rey on the side is cool.) BB-8 ships Rey with happiness. This is canon.

Jessica Jones - Jessica/Trish
Can I say JUST FUCK ME UP for this one, too? God... ANY phase of their life together. TROPE THIS SHIT UP. Existing or side Jessica/Luke is totally welcome, but please as little Simpson as possible, and Killgrave is obviously a part of their story but NOT A ROMANTIC ONE. File under things I hope I don't need to clarify. Okay, more positive ideas. I'd love to see Trish go more Hellcat, happy superheroines AU... baby bisexual kids... ANYTHING.

I want to talk about writing/creating with you! If you'd like to talk with me, leave a link to a bunch of your fic/vids/art/other creative things, and I'll choose one that makes me curious and ask you to tell me about it, with some specific questions.

1) Right, so I think I'm going to try and write something up for this, only question is what. I'm not even really in a fandom right now, so... I'll take any suggestions you'd like to read about? Actually, now that I think about it, I could potentially like, break down a fanwork and analyze it? The due date isn't til March, so I have a bit of time to think.

2) Do you have a collection or poetry/short stories/novel/family history/??? that you'd like digitized and made into a PDF? Historical preservation/layout/formatting/digitization is (part of) what I do for a day job, and I really like it. I'd like the opportunity to stretch my wings on a solo project. Zero obligation to use the finished product for anything. If you want, you can email me about this: aphrodite.mine at gmail.

3) Otherwise doing well! 
aphrodite_mine: woman in a closing elevator (office - elevator love)
General Likes: If you write a story that focuses on a pairing I've picked, you win. I'm easy.
General Dislikes: Rape (references to canon are fine), scat, A/B/O, and Hardline Triggers: Roller derby. So no skating AUs please.

True Detective: Antigone "Ani" Bezzerides/Jordan Semyon
  • raising the baby together, on the run, unfamiliar place, sharing small spaces, desperate clinging
  • Jordan in the white dress, Ani walking slow across the square
  • the show hints at Jordan having been a sex worker. what if instead of meeting Frank, she met young beat cop Bezzerides?
The Office: Karen Filippelli/Pam Beesley
  • raising their babies together post or during a divorce, finding solace in the somewhat familiar
  • fake date, forced to team up, snowed in/forced to share small space during season 3 era
  • au with Pam and Karen meeting up in school, one or the other out of their element in a particular course
Hannibal: Margot Verger/Alana Bloom
  • *clears throat* raising their baby together, making a safe place for everyone, finding small joys and peace
  • psychiatrist/patient au, always a hit
  • disability accommodation for Alana (even just mentioning chronic pain, etc)
  • trans or genderqueer Margot (mixing in some book canon, perhaps) fascinates me
  • boarding school au, because I am so weak
Bedelia Du Maurier/Alana Bloom/Margot Verger
  • murder!wives party time??? full-on hedonism fucking in blood because they can
  • a dinner party! eating puns! (but no one is a cannibal wink wink)
  • Margot/Alana or Bedelia/Alana established, adding a third because a platform on three legs is far more likely to stay balanced than on two
  • there... could be a baby. If... you wanted.
Miriam Lass/Margot Verger
  • I don't know how this would work but I know that I want it
  • always a fan of comparing scars, pretty faces kissing, finding something good amidst the terrible
  • *hides head in pillow* *mumbles something about a baby*
Gone Girl: Amy Elliot Dunne/Margo Dunne
  • it would be irrational to say raising the baby together, right? okay, I won't say it
  • au where Amy meets Margo instead of Nick (is it just a fling, or does Margo stick? Does she end up making scavenger hunts for her?)
  • what are the advantages to whatever Amy's idea of lesbianism/bisexuality/??? is to Cool Girl?
  • sneaking around hate fuck
Crossover: Parks & Recreation/Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Ann Perkins/Rosa Diaz
  • there are only two fics and I wrote one so anything you write would be incredible
  • feel free to hop onto the existing verse or set up another way: school au, always-in-NYC/always-in-Pawnee au
  • they have an eerily similar taste in women, er, friends (feel free to include past or unrequited Amy/Rosa and Ann/Leslie)
  • trans Rosa is totally optional but also awesome
  • for consistency I'm gonna say raising Ann's baby together, but please ignore me. Seriously.
For additional things I like, my dear author tag is here, and I'm on tumblr (with a very slow queue) as aryannagiordan0.

aphrodite_mine: a woman makes a truly goofy face (random - jaye face)
I'm actually getting serious about co-writing this series with a friend, and I'm looking for some shared writing software that has

easy/clean organization including folders or places for outlines and character profiles
quickish load time
live writing in the same window
possibly chat within the program

and that is compatable with windows, mac, and super wishful thinking, iPhone.

I don't even know what to google, here. Any ideas? I wouldn't mind paying a bit, just nothing staggering.

is rapidly upon us. I'm feeling quite good and want to share. I've set up a form here that I'd love for you to fill out if you'd like to receive a letter from me. The form lives here.

Dear [community profile] everywoman  author,

Thank you for offering to write something I've requested! I love gen and shipfic in equal measure. Plot, sex, action - all great, but what I love is characterization, so don't feel pressured to include lots of explosions. In my letter, I'm including some possible ships, story scenarios, and headcanons, but feel free to ignore any of these if they don't jive with the story you want to write.

I have no hard-line triggers at this time, but please warn if applicable for self-harm, disordered eating, and pregnancy/birth.
