aphrodite_mine: two women in period costumes reading while sitting on the floor (fingersmith - reading porn)

My requests are:
  • Orphan Black (Krystal/Tony, Beth/Rachel, Beth/Alison, Beth/Krystal, Beth/Sarah)
  • Degrassi (Fiona/Declan, Fiona/Holly J/Declan)
  • Big Love (Nicki/Sarah, Nicki/Barb, Nicki/Margene/Barb)
  • Skins (Tony/Effy, Emily/Katie)

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 the mod.

There is occasional caps lock below. )
aphrodite_mine: two women wearing army hats steal a kiss (random - vintage love)
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!

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.

On livejournal:

--> [community profile] intoabar: Pick a character who walks into a bar, get assigned a random character from a fandom of your listing who they meet. Write a fic about it. Gen, het, fem... whatever. Signups are open. (Also on DW)

--> [profile] femslash_planet: I'm on team sweeps. Having a stupid amount of fun so far and all I've done is plan a project and do a wordsearch.


Playing as Bianca from Degrassi. Love me some conflicted feelings, and hello powerplay. (Yes, I ship her with Adam, and yes, I'd probably ship her with anyone, given the screen time. But not Alli. Bleh.)

What's that, universe? You've been longing for an update from my little corner of the world? Well, I'm about to make your dreams come true, baby. Get ready for this.

One word, my loves: Derby. Roller derby, to be specific. If I wasn't utterly consumed before, I sure as hell am now. Pencil me in for three practices a week, watching my diet, attempting to exercise and stretch while sitting at my desk job... you name it. Our first bout is September 11, and I do not want to be flattened out there. We have less than six weeks with fewer than optimal numbers to get into bouting shape. I. Want. It. Last night's practice was brutal: at least three girls threw up, two cried. But we didn't stop. Roller derby is the best thing to happen to me, and despite all the drama and hooey that comes along with running a group of 30 women, the rewards are incredible.

I'm also reading more than I've had time to in ages. That's one of the benefits of being out of school and having an hour-long lunch break. I prefer to review series as a whole, which puts a bit of a hindrance on posting, but lately I've been speeding through the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels, the Oresteia (for Classica chat), the Sookie Stackhouse novels (forget what I said before about hating them, I'm so addicted), and I'm about to start the Millennium series by Steig Larsson.

As for writing, and other more intellectual pursuits, not much is happening other than RP. But that doesn't mean I'm not completely happy with the way things are right now. If you've talked to me lately, my main shows are True Blood and Degrassi, both of which I've had the pleasure of watching with friends. Simply watching, however, is not always enough. I've recently hooked up with people in the role playing community who have allowed for a deeper, meta experience. Through RP, we have explored motivations, how far characters will go, and the extent of things written into the text such as genderfail and manpain. Writing Bill has made True Blood watchable for me again, since I analyze the show and break it up instead of swallowing it whole. (RP also makes my work day a blast!)

Oh, and did I mention, I'm living with my best friend and derby wife, Bobbie Soxxx in the cutest house ever, for one. AND today I'm picking up one of my teammate's kids for the evening cause she pulled her back--I've missed babysitting so much!
aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (rpf - eh - desperate)
--> Cyber stalker alert: http://emigree.livejournal.com/52781.html. Please read for information.

--> Things I watched today:
+ Episodes 901-909 of Degrassi TNG. I'm into new territory for me. SO excited for the new season to kick off in a few weeks. My favorite characters are Jane, Fiona and Declan, so I'm glad I picked up Fi as an RP character :)
+ New True Blood. Every episode of this season (and last) has been sickening and ragey. It's a friend groupwatch activity or I might quit the show. I am bored with half of the plots this season, a few are interesting, and some are just downright horrifying (not *scary*, but... awful.) I need to write about this, I just can't stomach the thought.
+ Hounddog. I've seen the movie before, and I liked it better and worse on the second viewing. Explanation: I could appreciate it this time through as a strictly "southern gothic" venture into storytelling. That said, even knowing that everything is going to be a bit over the top, the excessive symbolism got to me. Some things work on the page, or work in experimental film, and just don't really translate in a serious way to film, at least not a film that seems to be taking itself "mainstream" for the majority of the film. Hounddog needs to find its niche earlier on and stick there, rather than dancing in and out of stereotypes and relying on banjo music. It also thinks that it is racially progressive when it falls back on the same old "magical negro" syndrome of many old southern lit--especially films. That said, it isn't a bad film. And the controversial rape scene is hardly even one, even when compared to my metaphorical issues with True Blood.
+ Childrens Hospital, the first episode. This used to be a web series and has now been picked up by Adult Swim. During July they'll be running the webisodes as full episodes, and in August "season 2" will begin. The show mocks hospital dramas, and is hilarious. The cast is first rate, borrowing from top comedies like Party Down and Parks & Recreation. I can't wait to see more, and I'm so glad I'm catching this from the beginning.

--> Also reading? Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series. I love it so far, but I will refrain from further comment until I get caught up and can do a write up. [[livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, Ramona is an "American Ninja", thankfully, and not a half-ninja, as AfterEllen.com erroneously reported.]

Fandoms included: 30 Rock, Alias, Big Love, Degrassi, Leverage, RPFS, X-Files, X-Men
Next Rec post: House, MD & The Office
recs under here )
  • Admitted crackfic by [livejournal.com profile] maddie508 , I Kissed a Girl is a pretty damn hilarious take on what might happen if Jenna decided to get her ratings up with the lesbian audience.
  • Two Liz/Gretchen gems: First That Hot Girl by [livejournal.com profile] ijemanja , where Liz calls up Gretchen just to make sure she's still got "it," and Hypothetically by [livejournal.com profile] geonncannon , where its Christmas, and Liz is worried about choking and oh yeah. There's sex.
  • Sydney/Rachel: A wonderful peek post-series brought to you by [livejournal.com profile] jaina47 , A Day's Grace, with action and a hint of bittersweet sexuality, and some fluff by [livejournal.com profile] kangeiko , Icebreaker, from [livejournal.com profile] femslash07 .
  • Sydney/Nadia: The first part of this post is Five time Nadia had less-than-sisterly thoughts about her sister, and my friends, it's worth checking out. Again, by [livejournal.com profile] kangeiko .
  • And the high roller, Sydney/Lauren: Boy, [livejournal.com profile] femslash04 was killer, eh? Before I was even "involved" in fandom, I had these fics printed out and in binders so that I could read them in school. Oh yeah, I was hardcore. We've got The Art of Driving by [livejournal.com profile] yalena78 , who brings us Lauren and Sydney confronted with the past of Julia Thorne. And how about Another Girl's Paradise by [livejournal.com profile] coffeeandink ? It's Julia/Not-Sydney and Lauren, desperate for anything - a connection - and sex, definitely that. Then if you're like me and you get breathless over masterful use of fragments and parenthesis, you can't possibly afford to miss Stasis by [livejournal.com profile] katjanka . It's brutal and sexy and... I don't think I have the words to do it justice, honestly. Then there's another fic from off-lj that I've enjoyed: Tense and Skin by Vanzetti. Lauren and Sydney moving in their constant dance around Michael...

  • Since this fandom is still relatively small, I'd say its hard to find excellent fiction for it, especially femslash. However, [livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl 's The human heart in conflict with itself (Sarah/Heather) is probably the best of that pairing, from what I've read. It takes careful consideration with the canon and weaves fiction throughout it.
  • As for other pairings, I'd suggest Temptations and Sins (Nicki/Sarah) by [livejournal.com profile] femmequixotic . Aside from the fact that this was written for me for Yuletide last year, its absolutely STUNNING. The incorporation of biblical images and verses bowled me over.

  • I've found it nearly impossible to find Classic Degrassi femslash, but [livejournal.com profile] takemeback wrote this great little Heather/Erika piece, Caged, Free (You and Me). It's obviously carefully researched and probably one of the rarest of pairings ever.
  • As the moderator of dtngfemslash, I see a lot of great stuff come through, with an incredible variety of pairings. These two, Fences by [livejournal.com profile] texaswatermelon (Darcy/Paige) and Doll Parts by [livejournal.com profile] brighteyedcat (Ellie/Paige) made it to my recs page: Check them out. The beauty of these stories is that you don't have to ship these to enjoy them. The writers bring you along for the ride and convince you along the way.
  • Of course, I would never be into Degrassi femslash at all if I hadn't read my first story, [livejournal.com profile] phaballa 's Good Girls Don't (Paige/Alex): a pinch hit that became Alex pondering all things Paige Michaelchuck.




  • Demi Lovato/Selena Gomez: I'm going to go ahead and say it. The best of this fandom is Evolution, by [livejournal.com profile] tamaraface . The story is so epic, it's beyond words.

  • Anna Poppelwell/Georgie Henley: Honestly, I don't know if anyone else writes these two Narnia girls, other than [livejournal.com profile] likecharity , but no one else should try. Behind Glass is the epitome of sexual tension and it should never be breached, that is, unless likecharity wants to write a sequel.

  • Tina Fey/Amy Poehler: [livejournal.com profile] sinful_caesar has the market cornered with her masterful, sexy and hilarious works Happy Pappy and the "sequel", ImPalin. These stories take "canon" and twist it deliciously on its head. The best part is, this reality is perfect plausible. The devil is certainly in the details in these stories. Not only do I feel like I'm there for the naughty bits, but all the goodies in-between.

  • I have to say, my exposure to Politic X probably ruined me for any other Scully/Reyes fiction, ever. Night Ride Across the Caucasus (an AU of 4-D), and the sequel Secret Bird, are so damn real that I'd be shocked if the author hadn't lived out every second of the stories. Which, considering the content, is a little impossible. There's a layer of myth included in the stories that usually isn't in fanfiction, usually reserved for the levels of REAL fiction. Believe me, it's appreciated. Her other S/R fic, Six Keys, is a joy to read, and god, is it sexy. On the other hand, Reverie is dark and creepy and wonderful.
  • Some other Scully/Reyes fics that managed to sink in are Empty Corners by [livejournal.com profile] mandysbitch , where Reyes is mourning and Scully is the one to save her, for once. There's also what's left is magic by [livejournal.com profile] mazily , where doctrine meets chaos and love blooms.

  • I have a serious thing for Rogue/Kitty. It almost doesn't matter what universe. I look for it everywhere. First, two short pieces by [livejournal.com profile] maharetr : Push/Pull and Under Her Skin. I especially love the hair and skin imagry since senses are especially key in this pairing.
  • I'll finish off this post with three recurring favorites. Smudge by [livejournal.com profile] salmon_pink is a sexy romp featuring chocolate and untouchable girls. Lips Like Morphine by [livejournal.com profile] brighteyedcat is an epic little AU where Rogue gets some balls, and not Bobby's. See What you Want by escritoireazul is all about the pain of wanting someone you can never have.
