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.

Okay. Here. I'm going to tell myself that posting this is a kind of work decompression and not procrastination. Okay. I'm convinced. 

I've banned myself from tumblr until the following is complete:
1. [community profile] galentinesday  first draft
2. draft is sent to prozacpark and ~~2nd beta???who??do you want~~
3. finish Community season 3
4. watch tonight's episodes of Community, The Office, & Parks and Recreation

...so I imagine I'll be back in full online mode on Sunday or Monday when my work schedule is taken into account. From there, the plan is to #fakedateflail and wander around Scrawnee* until my rarewomen assignment comes which is when moving panic should start kicking in as well. PERFECTION! 

*Scrawnee, the derogative shorthand for the derogatively nick-named "Scrawnee Wasteland" is a 30-or-so acre plot of sallow farm land between Pawnee and its non-Eagleton neighbor, Scranton. Residents rarely mix, choosing to travel in other directions (Pawneeans through the comparative metropolis of Eagleton; Scrantonites via the geographical mystery that is Wilkes-Barre, PA [don't ask questions]), but occasionally a Scranton child will be seen playing with a Pawnee raccoon, or a Pawneean enjoying a Scrantonian burger.

Today's prompt for [community profile] snowflake_challenge  is: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I.. didn't read the prompt closely, and so I just spent three hours narrowing down my favorite fics to a list of just three that I consider my best. I suppose it's a worthwhile effort, in any case.

In no particular order:
you have always worn me well (She's the Man, Olivia/Viola/Duke)
a pinch hit (actually I don't remember if it was my assignment or not!) for last year's 3_ships. Probably the first time my initial idea actually made it to 'paper' in a way that didn't make me feel like I'd failed somewhere along the line. I'm also incredibly proud of the gender discussion here. It's not an idea I would have even considered a year or two before writing it.

A Lack of Color (The Office, Gen, Pam & Karen, Pam/Jim background)
written quickly after 6x9 "Double Date" which left me an emotional wreck of anger and sadness... but I think this fic moves far beyond cathartic working through of issues. I was quite kind to Jim, actually, which is the first sign of approaching fic in a bit more levelheaded way. I don't know. This just feels incredibly real to me, with a few moments that just scream 'The Office' for good measure.

Replacements (The Inside, Rebecca/Web, Alvarez/Web)
My first Yuletide fic, and my introduction to [personal profile] prozacpark ! Aside from that phenomenal, life-changing thing, the story that came out of her prompts is, other than being a little uneven, one of my best. I worked over section 2 with my creative writing class, so I don't think the writing is as even as it could be, but the short bits about Rebecca, and all of the implications... If I didn't write this, I would be obsessed with it. I kind of am anyway.

Here's May's media post. It's JUNE, you guys. I move NEXT MONTH.

I'm having a nostalgia black out for Karen/Pam right now. WHY ISN'T THERE MORE OF YOU, FIC?

[community profile] remix_her  is coming up, and it looks like I'll probably sign up for the official exchange, but depending on the state of moving stuff and other writing, I'll probably also want to do the UN-official part where I pick a story and remix it. There will be an official "I grant blanket permission to remix my stuff" post in a while, but if you'd rather not post there or just want to let me know -- on a no pressure basis -- that you wouldn't mind me playing around in your sandboxes... I'd be tickled pink if you commented to that effect. *bats eyelashes*

Dear author,

What a fun idea for a ficathon! As a fan of the ladies, even the more popular fandoms are sometimes a place of limited enjoyment for me, so no matter what you write, if you write about one or more of these women, I'll be happy!

Some things that make me happy: [Stolen shamelessly from my yuletide dear author letter] Women. Women being awesome, women having emotions that don't revolve around men, women having stories, queer women, non-traditional women, women loving women, women doing/loving things/people that society says they shouldn't, women building their own narratives. Taboo. Consensual incest, queerness, non-fetishized mental illness, masturbation. Exploration. Character, theme, relationship, kink*. Narratives. Parenthesis, non-linear stories, fractured patriarchy. Relationships. Non-romantic love, romantic love, trust, growing up, growing apart, growing together, staying the same, substituting for a desired person or experience, quiet moments, consent (assumed or otherwise), lust, confusion, domesticity.

*An extra note regarding kink, if that interests you (skip) I really enjoy kinks explored and shared tentatively, discovering kinks and how they work, and in general, a more playful feeling. Specifically, I enjoy reading about light bondage, watersports, gender play, light role playing, blood play (through menstruation or cuts, when in character) and characters who have a kink for generally non-sexual things like emphasizing relationships, domesticity, or being good a job. :

Some things that make me unhappy: Men telling women how to feel/act unquestioned, rape, racism, fetishizing race or mental illness (such as referring to a character only by the color of her skin, or getting pleasure - erotic or otherwise - from witnessing the way someone with mental illness approaches the world. I'm just not comfortable reading about it most of the time), eating disorders, unrepentant cruelty.

Specific requests:
The Office (US): Karen Filippelli, Pam Beesley

"I'd love any degree of interaction between these two, between cautious co-workers to tentative friends to lovers. Include Jim as your muse dictates, but please don't vilify anyone involved. I'm happy with any time setting. See Dear Author letter for additional details that make me happy."

KaPam is my OTP for the series, but I would also love to read either of them with any female from the series, and Jim, too (but please no overt Jim/Pam... If I wanted that, I could just turn on the television). I also ship Pam with Michael and Toby (but dear god, not together) if you'd prefer het. As I said, this story doesn't have to be romantic! I'd love to see a day at the office, what life is like away from work, where the future takes them. Specifically for this fandom, I wouldn't mind at all reading about the canonical pregnancies, especially if they end up (somehow) with Karen and Pam raising said babies together. I mean, I can dream, right?

I talk about Karen (and Katy, who is awesome if you want to throw her in, hah) in my rarewomen dear author letter.

The L Word: Any

"I'm happy with any pairing combination here. I'll elaborate more about possibilities in my Dear Author letter. Please don't vilify Jenny if you choose to write about her, and please don't write about the season 5 mystery. Season 5 characters and relationships are okay, but I'm not interesting in who ****** Jenny." (Side note: is anyone still unspoiled for that?)

As odd as it may sound in a fandom related directly to femslash pairings, I would really enjoy a piece of gen about any of these women. I'd prefer not to read about the gritty details of cancer/death or the gambling/powerplay relationship Helena was in during season 5. I would also, of course, love to see just about any of these women paired up. I ship Alice with literally everyone, and pre-season-3-Jenny with everyone as well (minus Shane. Not a Shane fan). In particular, I get a kick out of Alice/Dana/Lara (which might be hard to do without discussion of cancer, so maybe not) and Alice/Jenny, but feel free to write about whoever speaks to you the most! (You might have noticed that Tina and Bette are left off of the character list. While I enjoy Bette with Alice or Jodi Lerner, I can not stand Tina. Please, pretty please, leave Tina out of this story as much as possible?

Game of Thrones (TV): Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark

"I just want to see these ladies interact. I'm also quite happy with Cersei/Jaime or a solo story about one of the women. I have a lot of squicks/triggers with this fandom, so please take note of the Dear Author letter -- don't worry, I also have a lot of things that make me a happy reader!"

You should know that Cersei is my favorite character and I see her as extremely difficult, power-driven, protective of her family, but NOT as a villain and as ultimately sympathetic. Cersei should not act without motivation. I feel a bit less protective of Sansa, so there is some wiggle room for characterization there. Hah! I would prefer to see these two ladies interacting, whether it be over affairs of the state or of the heart. If you are inclined to write femslash, I would adore seeing them together, as long as Sansa offers consent and is not abused. I would... prefer to see as little of Joffrey as possible, unless the story involves Cersei or Sansa taking actions to counteract his. Other characters I really enjoy for the purposes of pairing or interaction are Jaime (paired with either), Margaery Tyrell, and Brienne of Tarth. I also adore Myrcella and Tommen if you'd like to include them.

& if you are interested in more about what I like to read, here's my 3_ships letter and my femslash11 letter. I also make a monthly rec post at my wordpress if you'd like to see some fics I've really enjoyed.
