aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (Default)
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 [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.

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+

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.
Star Wars, X-Men, Hannibal, Orphan Black, Strange Empire, X-Files )

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

Orphan Black, Strange Empire, Hannibal, Lost Girl )

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.

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.
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!.

These sign ups! I want to participate in all the things! *peering into the world from the thesis void* HELLO!

I'm pretty pumped about this exchange and all of the potential options. I'm also hoping that someone actually matches on my requests. So if that is you--AWESOME! As you can probably tell, I LOVE LADIES. I love ladies loving ladies and sometimes loving dudes who love them. I love angst and snark and slightly unhealthy replacement scenarios and domesticity and cuddles and sex and AWKWARD sex.

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' (random - feminist killjoy)
Thank you for matching or pinching based on one of these pairings! For the record, I requested:

Community: ANY (Britta/Annie, Britta/Slater, Britta/Shirley, Britta/evil!Britta, Britta/Annie/Jeff)
Hannibal: Alana/Beverly, Alana/Hannibal, Alana/Abigail, Alana/Will/Hannibal, Alana/Bedelia
Mad Men: ANY (Joan/Peggy, Peggy/Joyce, Megan/Betty, Trudy/Beth, Beth/Joyce)
The Office: Pam/Karen, Karen/Katy, Pam/Katy, Pam/Nellie

Generally, I OTC more than OTP, so I definitely DON'T have a preference as to which of these pairings/threesomes gets written, as long as the women involved (all characters, really) are treated with respect and allowed to get a little sexy. I also post pretty frequently about these pairings and characters at my tumblr if you'd like more of an idea of how I feel about them. That came out cryptic?

Okay. Since you've already agreed to write these characters in these relationships, I don't have to spend the first half of my letter wheedling you into shipping! RADICAL! In that case, lets get down to business.

aphrodite_mine: (community - thumbs up!)
1. Serious question: once Days of the Future Past comes out, would you or someone you love be interested in an xmmficathon return? We'd do something with opting-in on the various canons, like X3, XMFC, Wolverine, and the new film. Probably no comics options, because those are hell to match anyway.

2. Are there any rumblings of a post-season Hannibal fic exchange? Because YES PLEASE and my brain doesn't work well with open-ended prompt claiming. GIVE ME AN ASSIGNMENT.

3. I'm going to laugh until I cry or cry until I laugh if my night terrors fall off once this move is complete. My fuckin' brain, y'all.
