aphrodite_mine: a woman makes a truly goofy face (random - jaye face)
This is mostly a placeholder.

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)

Details below the cut in bullet format because I've already handwritten and typed up this post before hitting some goddamn keyboard shortcut and I'm running on critically low spoons, but I wanted to get this up. Hope it is helpful.

aphrodite_mine: two women wearing army hats steal a kiss (random - vintage love)
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!

INFO! (Some copied/pasted from previous letters)

aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (random - glasses of joy)
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.
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!.

aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (random - feminist killjoy)
After a year off of the exchange, I am tentatively back but playing it super safe with my offers and requests. I have requested only fandoms and characters with which I would be pleased to read nearly everything. I don't have many hardline triggers/squicks, but they differ in each fandom. Optional details are, of course, optional. If you would like more details, you should feel welcome to contact [personal profile] prozacpark  and ask questions (she's cool with this arrangement!), or ask vague things anon on tumblr (I am aphrodite-mine there, too).

With that out of the way: THANK YOU, author! I love stories! I love that you offered to write women for this exchange! For any fandom you may have matched on, I would love femslash, femgen, or incest (if applicable). Here are my requests:

aphrodite_mine: two women in period garb face away from the screen. they are holding hands (tipping the velvet - into the sunset)
Dear author,

Hi! AM SO EXCITED YOU ARE HERE! I've requested the max number of fandoms, and usually have pairing options, so hopefully you have some options and some things that really make you feel jazzy. I'll try to give some suggestions/ideas, but feel free to ignore anything (minus triggers) that doesn't jive with your personal writing flow. I want you to have fun and not stress -- so if you have any questions, you can ask me anon on tumblr (aphrodite-mine.tumblr.com) or via prozacpark. Feel free to click around tumblr or anothercoast.wordpress.com where I list fanfic recs, but again, if something makes you feel all weird, just pretend you didn't see it! Cool? Cool!

#1: Hannibal, Alana Bloom/Abigail Hobbs, Alana Bloom/Beverly Katz, Abigail Hobbs/Freddie Lounds

I love how fucked up this show is. I love that the characters are real about that, too. They're all flawed and wonderful in their own way, and I love fic that acknowledges it. Sex is ALWAYS optional, but I definitely like it in this fandom if you lean that way. I love precanon and postcanon and missing moments during canon. I'm a supporter of Abigail being NOT dead. 

Not sure how obvious this might be, but I'd rather not read about Hannibal himself or Will (though I understand if they're on the perephery). Dub-con, kinky shit, dark shit -- all fine, but please please please no murder or non-con. I am also a bit squicky about food sometimes, so if post-canon I'd rather not read about how Alana is super afraid of eating because of people or something. 

#2: Bunheads, Michelle/Sasha, Michelle/Truly

Another show with exquisitely damaged but damn determined ladies. I love borderline disturbing hook ups or celebrations or the domestic bliss/trouble that comes from sharing spaces. I'm perfectly happy with pretending that Godot and Goth Boy and Handyman don't exist. AUs (non ballet?) welcome, not mandatory obviously. Secret dating would delight me.

Food squick possibly relevant here. Counting calories or eating just enough to work off are in the danger zone. Please no insisting on straightness or being outed against their will.

#3: Community, Britta/Evil!Britta, Annie/Britta, Britta/Shirley, Britta/Michelle Slater, Britta/Evil!Annie, Britta/Paige

I. Love. Britta. I love queer Britta. I love bi Britta. I love feminist Britta. I love faily but fixing it Britta. I love fumbly awkward Britta. I love unabashed and unafraid Britta. AUs acceptable, as are any alternate/kooky locations/timelines within canon. 

I'd prefer something at least mostly lighthearted. If dark places are ventured into, please give them a way out. Please don't erase Britta's history with men (or the other characters' for that matter). I don't mind Jeff, so don't villanize him -- he'd probably be into lesbianry anyway. No non-con, no deep self-loathing that gets magically fixed by someone else (hell, just avoid the deep self-loathing.)

#4: Orphan Black, Alison Hendrix/Original Female Character, Alison Hendrix/Sarah Manning, Alison Hendrix/Beth Childs, Helena/Sarah Manning, Alison Hendrix/Aynsley

Alison and Helena are my FAAAAAvorites. I'm on team Helena Is Alive Despite Canon Evidence, and team Alison Doesn't Sign, so if post-canon, keep things... not in the depths of despair. I'd prefer no AUs here -- but pre-canon, during canon, anything else is totally rad. I definitely think Alison is Secretly Gay and in denial, but I'm not sure how conscious of that she is. 

Domestic fluff/angst = amazeballs. Learning each other and what each likes = fabulouso. Please no non-con, no sex/kissing where one party doesn't know the true identity of another party. Remember that while Helena may be stunted, she is still an adult (hooking up with someone you infantalize is kinda creepers). Also: I know canon is kind of obsessed with Kira as the First Bio Child and Alison has some canon... jealousy? IDK -- but please don't write about that. If you want to write about motherhood, please include Oscar and Gemma. 

#5: Go On, 
  • Anne/Carrie, 
  • Anne/Lauren, 
  • Anne/Simone
Anne, Anne, Anne, Anne, Anne. Anne being snarky, bitter, swoony, in love, out of love, obsessive, casual... and ANNE. Bonus "broTP" with Ryan, but absolutely not required. I love the found family aspect of the show, so feel free to include as many of the group members -- and as much shenanigans -- as you'd like! Pre-canon, during-canon, post-canon, what ever! Down for AUs and just about anything as long as it doesn't linger too long in sad land.

THANK YOU for writing for me, author. I mean it when I say that I want you to enjoy yourself. Respect the characters and tell the story they lead you in. Again, if you have questions or worries, don't hesitate to poke me (with minimal details of course, I DO like to be a little surprised.) <3
aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (inside - lost)
Hi writer, participant, and overall cool-person! We have matched on a totally rad lady from Bomb Girls, Bunheads, For A Good Time, Call..., The Inside, New Girl, or The Office which means that not only are you a totally rad person but you have rad taste in rad ladies! Here's what I requested and some additional information you might want.
