aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (ob - procop)
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.

I enjoy having themed sign-ups, so this year the "theme" happens to be "TV shows filmed in Canada"

There are a LOT of great-looking fic and art to browse through, holy gosh.

I wrote:

Feel the rest out (Fingersmith, post-canon, Sue/Maud)

and

If you're gonna shoot me down, do it gently (Masters of Sex, Lillian/Virginia)

So far, I've really only read my gifts, but am super happy!

scintilla10 (HEY!!) wrote How to Win at Book Club (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Amy/Rosa) which made me laugh out LOUD and clap with glee

and Missy wrote me a sweet little treat, Hey Ballerina (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Amy/Rosa)

Hola, Yuletider. As always, I'm participating in a lady & queer positive request/offer Yuletide. In many cases, I have only officially requested one character. I truly enjoy genfic, but I've also given options that include ships and additional info. To get a flavor for things I enjoy, you're welcome to check out my tumblr. If anything makes you feel weird/stressed, just pretend you didn't see it! I try to state when my triggers are hard lines, but generally if something is warned for, I'm okay with it. Have fun! Don't stress! If you have vague questions, you can ask me anon on tumblr (aphrodite-mine.tumblr.com) or through mage-girl on LJ/magicisgreen on tumblr.

*Sorry this wasn't up when assignments went out. Optional details are optional, so if you have an idea that doesn't go with my notes, do that. Seriously.*

Requests: Tiny Detectives (Any), Hard Candy (Hayley Stark, Donna Mauer), Bunheads (Michelle Simms), The East (Izzy)

Dear author/artist,

Hi! I know my selection of fandoms is pretty widespread, but hopefully you have options, and if you don't I hope where we matched is a delight for you! I've got a few ideas for each fandom, but feel free to go your own way! I've stated when my triggers are hard lines, but generally if something is warned for, I'm okay with it. Have fun! Don't stress! If you have vague questions, you can ask me anon on tumblr (aphrodite-mine.tumblr.com) or through mage-girl on LJ/magicisgreen on tumblr.

To get a flavor for things I enjoy, you're welcome to check out my tumblr or my fic recs. If anything makes you feels weird/stressed, just pretend you didn't see it! Along those lines, I think I've got all of the language fic/art compliant, but if you see something that appears to lean one way or the other, it's a mistake and trust me, I requested what you're prepared to give!

The Requests!

Alright! Time for more deadlines and assignments. I LOVE DEADLINES AND ASSIGNMENTS. Why aren't I back in school?

I've requested Star Wars, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Game of Thrones, Hannibal and Orphan Black, which is actually a pretty accurate snapshot of my brain right now!

General info: I love ladies. More inspiration and general chatter at my tumblr, aphrodite-mine.tumblr.com. Feel free to ask vague questions via anon ask. You can also ask either prozacpark (on LJ or DW) or magicisgreen (on tumblr) and they will ask me without revealing who you are/specifics.

You've got mod! *grins* Don't be nervous, writer! We've matched on a character I dearly love and would be happy to read ANYTHING about! Even in fandoms where I've only officially requested one woman, I would LOVE a Bechdel test pass. Otherwise... have FUN. I'm including a few inspirational ideas as well as squicks and ships for each fandom, if you would like them. If you stumble onto a question I haven't answered for you, prozacpark would be a good resource (I promise, she's okay with this arrangement!).

Otherwise, my tumblr is also aphrodite_mine, and I talk about women a LOT there!

I made Something We Are All Intimately Involved In for franzeska, which was so far outside of my wheelhouse, I don't even know! Ultimately, I had fun. I got to watch Crash a few times through which is always delightful. I'm not sure how much of this is the vid I dreamed up, but I think it works as a sort of atmospheric slash vid? I had a lot of unexpected trouble with software/new computer/being super rusty at vidding and hopefully?? that doesn't come across. 

It's pretty hilarious/ironic that I ended up making a boyslash vid because it seems that my requests inspired a HUGE FLURRY OF WOMEN/FEMINIST/FEMSLASH vids and I basically still want to die they make me so happy.

*GETS REAL SERIOUS FOR A MOMENT* 

Fandom activism can be a-mazing, I won't lie about that. But sometimes I feel like a few of us are shouting into a void and the only thing coming back is echoes. [Disclaimer: that is absolutely not the case, but it doesn't change how down I can get.] I feel like fandom is a space in which I can actually make a difference, slowly, through things like only writing and requesting women and GQ characters, through co-running rarewomen, and through quietly, constantly, defending and loving the women you hate.

It gave me THE MOST HAPPY to see the things made based off of my prompts.

[personal profile] chaila  made Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down (Top of the Lake) which she talks about a little here. In retrospect, I should have known this was chaila! I guessed another of her vids -- Paradise Circus (Stoker) -- and REALLY should have seen the tell-tale chaila-ness here as well. After all, she DID say she was going to make a vid for this great miniseries even if she wasn't assigned to it!

[personal profile] eruthros , who I've been getting to know on twitter, made me TWO vids. Both for the exquisite Masters of Sex. It is to their credit that I would never have guessed they were made by the same person! THEY ARE VERY DIFFERENT VIDS! Studies in Human Sexual Response: She Bop is hilarious and sexy and a wonderful celebration of ladies having orgasms! Also, parachute, which is a beautiful, sad, comparison between Virginia with Bill and Virginia with Lillian and it makes me the MOST sad because Lillian is probably gonna die and history tells us that Virginia and Bill... don't. For awhile anyway. (And not that I don't like Virginia with Bill, but I wish she could be more of Lillian!Virginia with him. And he would stop being an ass.)

TO TOP IT ALL OFF, [personal profile] anoel  made Love, Save the Empty (Masters of Sex) which is the blatant Lillian/Virginia shipping vid I had no idea I wanted and needed SO DESPERATELY.

In short: Thank you for making this exchange, and my life, a delight.

Some details for you are below the cut, but really all you need to know is that I LOVE ladies. SO MUCH. I also like the idea of the pieces of this exchange as literal mishlochei manot for the characters. Fluff! My particular fluff tropes/narratives include: snowed in! sharing a bed/sleeping bag! cooking together! one character watching another character sleep! kisses! fake dating! being smart and competent at a job or passion! having positive lady mentors! teen au! fusion au! forget the haters, lets do the things we love OUR way!

Several of these fandoms feature Jewish characters, and evil viziers, so feel free to highlight or focus on them in addition to my little notes. I'm not Jewish myself but please don't let that keep you from taking these pieces in whatever direction you'd like. I have some additional notes on some of these fandoms in my Galentine's Day letter.

--

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Everyone is amazing and nothing hurts. I ship Amy/Rosa. 
Bunheads: I love literally every woman on this show. I ship Michelle/Sasha, Michelle/Truly, Michelle/Fanny, Boo/Sasha, Ginny/Mel, Truly/Milly, Michelle/Talia, Mel/Cozette.
Community: Sometimes canon makes me feel iffy, but the potential for AUs and childlike joy keep me coming back. I ship Annie/Britta, Britta/Slater, and Annie/Britta/Jeff.
The Inside: Truly brutal canon. Perhaps, there are small moments of light in this bleak existance? Platonic ships only.
Lost Girl: Mostly, I want an orgy of happy feelings and stupid (read: pretty) faces. I ship Tamsin/Bo, Lauren/Bo, Kenzi/Bo, Kenzi/Lauren, Tamsin/Lauren, Kenzi/Tamsin and brotp Lauren/Dyson.
Masters of Sex: Competent, smart, and daring ladies everywhere! I ship Virginia/Lillian, Virginia/Libby, Virginia/Betty.
Orphan Black: So many ladies its easy to forget that most of the are played by one person. I ship Beth/Alison, Alison/Sarah, Sarah/Helena (in a fluffy way?), Delphine/Rachel.
Pretty Little Liars: Okay, I haven't watched all of canon yet but I'm spoiled I promise. I ship Emily/Paige, Emily/Spencer, Emily/Alison and every threesomey mashup between them.
Runaways: Comic of my heart! I ship Karolina/Nico, Karolina/Xavin, Karolina/Julie Power, and brotp Karolina/Chase.
Top of the Lake: Somewhere beneath the crushing blow of this, there is so much hope. I ship Robin/Johnno.

Other than a more casual self-directive to be more healthy, and continue with the process of finishing my thesis and GRADUATING, my official resolution is to attempt to 

-- read 30 books
-- watch 50 movies

and log them here.

Have a lovely rest of holiday!

aphrodite_mine: a woman makes a truly goofy face (random - jaye face)
Which TV show did you start watching in 2013?
Hannibal, The Fall, Orange is the New Black, Sleepy Hollow, Top of the Lake, Happy Endings, Teen Wolf, Orphan Black, Masters of Sex, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, @midnight, Dracula, The Bridge.

Which TV show did you let go of in 2013?
Bob's Burgers pretty early on. I kept forgetting it was on and for me that is pretty sure sign of losing interest. Parks and Recreation, for the most part -- at least, emotionally let go. I also would have dropped Sleepy Hollow, but lady is super fond of it. Degrassi.

Which TV show did you mean to get into but didn't in 2013? Why?
Bates Motel had some appeal, but was so rapey that I just... couldn't. The Wentworth pilot is engrossing and very Australian and full of women, but it just kept getting pushed to the backburner. I also tried the Danish version of The Bridge and just... was not interested. At all. The Whose Line reboot. Everything was off about it. The Fosters.

Which TV show do you intend to check out in 2014?
Black Sails, and Getting On, at least for a trial run. I'll finally get past the first episode of Hit & Miss. Possibly Penny Dreadful.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2013?
I was pretty cranky about the "changes" in Project Runway that ended up being totally useless. And New Girl. When your favorite character is a cat, something's probably wrong. American Horror Story: Coven. I figured it would be racist, but I had no idea.

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2013?
Orphan Black and Top of the Lake are a pretty serious tie. Honorable mentions are Hannibal, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Masters of Sex.

Money situation continues to be not ideal. Goals: pay off car bills, pay off glasses bills, don't buy anything other than gas and food.

Fandom goals in reach for the season... course, all I want to write right now is Lillian/Virginia (Masters of Sex) and that's nowhere near any of my assignments. 'Sokay, though.

As for the family situation, I'm going to continue updates only via email. If you'd like to be included on this (and whatever other dire shit that befalls me and is unfit for the general public) please either email me at aphrodite.mine @ gmail or comment with your address. I won't assume that anyone wants to be on this list, or that anyone should be kept off. 

In any case, I'm taking care of myself and actually doing pretty well. Winter will not win.

Note: I may be even less able to participate in giving back through these lists this year because I'm trying to wrap up a lot of things and work on several projects. That said, I like presents, damn it!

1. Stories/vids/RECS/icons/remixes/fanmixes for the various things I've requested in recent fests. I've been asking for a lot of the same things, so that should help :P Links here and here and here and here. (Fandoms mentioned are: Bunheads, Community, Gravity, The Inside, Masters of Sex, Orphan Black, Hard Candy, Sleepy Hollow, Brooklyn Nine Nine, The Cahill Witch Chronicles, Evil Dead, Top of the Lake, Stoker, Dogtooth, Mad Men, Runaways, Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Pretty Little Liars.) Additionally, I am re-reading Sarah Waters and would love anything in those verses, and just saw Catching Fire and reminded myself how obsessed I am with Johanna. Desperately in need of fic/recs for her, femslash, poly... anything good! Oh, and Rogue. Always. Feel free to include anything you make in the gift collection they belong to rather than gifting solely to me. 

2. Recs for TV/movies/music/books based on things I already enjoy. 

3. Paperbackswap.com credits (if you have extras you don't want!)

4. Used comics or collections! I have trouble reading them digitally, but want desperately to be caught up on a few titles. Namely:
-- Young Avengers, new run, all issues but #1
-- Anything featuring the Runaways? IDK, I am probably missing some
-- Lazarus #4 and onward
-- Any really gr8 Scarlet Witch or Black Widow comics. I'm new to them, but again, shit at reading digitally.
(Note: I can totally mail these back to you when I'm done. Of course, I might have them for like a year or more. *cough prozacpark's Excalibur collection cough*)

5. Healthy, good snack foods. I'm terrible at eating well, but snacks that I find appealing help cut that. Of course, they usually go over budget. This is last on the list, because I don't think I know anyone who isn't struggling for funds right now... but I'd love a box of something you enjoy, or a week of graze (or similar) or a gift card to something like Whole Foods. 

Address available upon request. Love you all, and I'll be on the lookout for your lists!
aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (random - glasses of joy)
This fest is one of the fests of my heart. I am all about every level of female/female interaction from besties to all the resties. I am here for bff talks, friend dates, casual kissing, fwb, established relationship, domesticity (as friends or lovers), partnership, kink exploration... just about everything. I'd prefer the fic pass Bechdel, because these ladies have way more to talk about than dudes. If the characters have established sexualities, I'd prefer you not ignore that if sexuality is part of the story (so Britta could ID as bisexual, for example).

I would prefer to avoid non-con and dub-con (including things like, say, consuming a person without one's knowledge!, or fucking the wrong clone), but otherwise enjoy pretty much every type of story that emphasizes characterization through whatever else you like to write.

A few more notes based on individual fandoms:

I requested Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bunheads, Community, Hannibal, Orphan Black, and Whip It!.
