aphrodite_mine: (community - thumbs up!)
I want to talk about writing/creating with you! If you'd like to talk with me, leave a link to a bunch of your fic/vids/art/other creative things, and I'll choose one that makes me curious and ask you to tell me about it, with some specific questions. You can do this in a post, or a reply, or however you would like.

If you want to talk with others, you can repost this.

1) Right, so I think I'm going to try and write something up for this, only question is what. I'm not even really in a fandom right now, so... I'll take any suggestions you'd like to read about? Actually, now that I think about it, I could potentially like, break down a fanwork and analyze it? The due date isn't til March, so I have a bit of time to think.

2) Do you have a collection or poetry/short stories/novel/family history/??? that you'd like digitized and made into a PDF? Historical preservation/layout/formatting/digitization is (part of) what I do for a day job, and I really like it. I'd like the opportunity to stretch my wings on a solo project. Zero obligation to use the finished product for anything. If you want, you can email me about this: aphrodite.mine at gmail.

3) Otherwise doing well! 
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: a woman makes a truly goofy face (random - jaye face)
I'm actually getting serious about co-writing this series with a friend, and I'm looking for some shared writing software that has

easy/clean organization including folders or places for outlines and character profiles
quickish load time
live writing in the same window
possibly chat within the program

and that is compatable with windows, mac, and super wishful thinking, iPhone.

I don't even know what to google, here. Any ideas? I wouldn't mind paying a bit, just nothing staggering.

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)


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!

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

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' (orphan black - oh shit)
Family stuff is happening, and when that happens, the internet is especially good for distractioncake.

Here! Have some femslashex! 

The archive is here. It looks like there is something for everyone. More traditional fandoms/pairings and rare fandoms and pairings! Different styles, ratings, and GOOD TIMES. 

I wrote two things:

I heard the wind inside me crying
Orphan Black, Sarah Manning/Alison Hendrix, for teaboytoaliens
(post-canon, dark!AU)

we're better (you know we're better together)
The Heat, Sarah Ashburn/Shannon Mullins, for marginalia
(post-canon, moving in together and drunken shananagans)

I got:

Community, Annie Edison/Britta Perry, by thingswithwings

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

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:

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

Signal boost:

femslash(year) is now [community profile] femslashex . NOMINATIONS ARE SOON. Matches are NO LONGER just by fandom!

aphrodite_mine: two women in period costumes reading while sitting on the floor (fingersmith - reading porn)
Laptop is had. Still sorta getting used to Windows 8 and I don't hate it. 

I'm looking for work I can do from home: editing, tutoring, teaching... so if you see any leads, let me know. I'm exhausting mine quickly.

Related: all in life going well except work. 

I'm re-reading Animorphs. Did I mention that here? AMAZING. Love it so much.

Current status: pounding out a pinch hit for rarepair. (Hah, pounding. Er -- it is porn. That makes the joke clearer, yes.)

Since I can't seem to handle/deal with public role play/have a mental block against multiple accounts on sites I use daily...

would anyone be interested in trading scenes via email? Can be fandoms, crossovers, original stuff, plotty, dialogue, sexy... I'm pretty open. For those of you who had the same high school experience as I did, this would be the equivalent of trading a notebook back and forth between classes. Go at your own pace, hand it off when you're done with your section.

aphrodite_mine: (community - thumbs up!)
Still no pictures. But links!

- my X-Files story we are the half-destroyed instruments that once held to a course was recced (beautifully!) here, and oh gosh, this is one of the few times I've been recced, and WHAT A WONDERFUL FEELING. I've got a new goal to post my fanfic recs on tumblr with tags so people can find them and maybe feel just as good.
- the story I received for notprimetime is great! a roller derby AU/post-series Community fic with Britta and Shirley! Certificate in Applied Badass by an as-yet anon person. This also serves as a future reminder that, as much as I LOVE roller derby AUs and think every fandom should have at least one, I now need, like, trigger warnings, for roller derby. This is ABSOLUTELY not something I fault the author or story for, because WOW what a weird thing... *shakes head* Anyway, Certificate reminded me of those powerful/wonderful early days when everything seemed simpler and more beautiful on the track. Check it out.

What am I up to now?
- rarepairfest. Love my assignment, and I have some doodles and a draft started.
- A Peck on the Lips. One more story to record.
- incestbigbang. I am doing art for a Borgias fic. I may be slower than God at watching the show, but hi, yeah.
- continuing Lagniappe with mage_girl. HI THIS STORY IS REALLY FUN
- making a million doctors appointments, getting back into counseling, working, blah de bloo
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.
