First of all - yay, femslash! I'm so excited that you're writing for me, dear writer, thank you! ♥

About me - I'm pretty easy going, I like lots and lots of different things! Explicit porn is awesome, G-rated stories with hand-holding are awesome, kink is awesome (some kinks I enjoy are bondage, D/s and orgasm denial; I also enjoy vanilla sex!), angst and bleakness are awesome, happy endings are awesome, humour is awesome, domesticity is awesome! Etc.

One thing I would prefer not to see is non-con, please.

A few of my favourite things are banter, adventures, stoic girls with feeeeelings, road trips, post-apocalyptic settings, enemies forced to work together by circumstance, reluctant superheroes/coming to terms with powers or a destiny that isn't necessarily wanted, found families, unexpected/unconventional happy endings, and worldbuilding, but by no means feel obligated to include any of these things!

If you're looking for more information about me, I don't really use this journal or my livejournal much anymore, but all of my fic is up at the AO3 here. My tumblr is also fannish!

The rest of my letter is below the cut. I do tend to go on a bit, so feel free to ignore all of this if you don't like to have too much detail.


1. Avatar: the Last Airbender, Katara/Mai, Katara/Azula

I really fucking love this show, and Katara's character growth and development, her courage and strength, is one of my favourite things. I also love how all three of these characters play with gender and gender expression in different ways, how in some ways they are all quite into certain conventional expressions of femininity but then in other ways, when it comes to gender they break the fucking door down.

Katara/Azula I feel has the potential to be really fascinating, especially post-series, whether as enemies or reluctant allies or as two wounded people trying to work past that. And I love, love, love that Katara is the only person who is both strong and smart enough to defeat Azula - that they are equals in both their power and their intelligence.

And Katara/Mai is the crack pairing of my heart. Katara needs more lady friends! I think that these two actually do have a fair bit in common, and I'd love to see them together. (Also, it soothes my frustration at how certain sections of this fandom deal with the Katara/Zuko - Mai/Zuko debate. Ugh.)

With this fandom, I love stories set in or after the canon, but I'm also really into what-if stories. (Um, I would prefer to read stories set in the AtLA universe though - no high school or space AUs, please!) What if Mai had joined the Gaang with Zuko in the Western Air Temple, or after Boiling Rock? What if Azula had been the one to be scarred and banished, instead of Zuko? What if Katara had never woken Aang up, and headed North on her own?


2. Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark/Shae, Daenerys Targaryen/Melisandre

Oh, Sansa! I sort of feel like I watch the show with my fingers covering my eyes, waiting for the next awful thing to happen to her. And all I really want for her is happy things. Sansa and Shae's relationship is one of my favourite things from Season Two; I love how, reluctantly but surely, Shae just starts taking care of her. The friendship is just gorgeous, and I'd love to see it develop into something more. I'd also be really into Shae and Sansa running away together and being happy somewhere, let's be honest. HAPPY ENDINGS ALL ROUND.

With Dany and Melisandre - okay, they've never met in canon, but they also have so many fascinating parallels - fire imagery! supernatural babies! prophecies and destiny! I'd really, really love to see them working together. Let's be honest, as far as destined kings go Dany >>>>> Stannis. And the idea of Melisandre as the Merlin to Dany's Arthur could be really fucking incredible. I love both the gender-bending concept of it, and the individual specifics of their characters - they are both so incredibly hard and determined, working together they would basically be unstoppable.

Quick note about Game of Thrones: I watch and love the show, I have not - and don't intend to - read the books. I have been wildly spoilered for a lot of things that happen in the books, and I'm fine with a story that incorporates something from the books that hasn't happened in the show yet, but I am primarily a fan of Game of Thrones the TV series, and I would prefer a focus on characterisation and events from the show.



3. Marvel Avengers universe, Natasha Romanova/Peggy Carter

It's slightly cracky, but if you know anything about Natasha's comics backstory, I reckon this pairing could be kind of incredible. COLD WAR SPY SHENANIGANS! I like to think that after Steve died, Peggy just carried on being an awesome S.H.I.E.L.D agent, and there is so much possibility for her to meet up with Natasha at some point, whether as friends or enemies or something in between.

I'd also be into an AU where for whatever reason (Peggy also received some form of serum back in the day? time travel?) Peggy ended up in the modern day. Peggy and the Avengers would be an awesome fucking show, and I love the idea of her and Natasha having some kind of relationship in the middle of all that craziness.

(I do love Steve, and Peggy/Steve, and I would like to see that relationship treated respectfully. People change, things happen, sometimes relationships fail - they don't have to be together! But I do kind of need Steve to be treated right.)



4. Teen Wolf, Allison Argent/Erica Reyes, Lydia Martin/Ms Morell, Kate Argent/Allison Argent

Ugh, this bloody show. So many awesome lady characters, so much potential... so much storyline fail. I really enjoyed where Allison's storyline was going, but the resolution was awful. And Lydia's storyline sort of... stopped halfway? I am really into the idea of fic restoring some kind of agency to these characters, that would be super. :|

(Quick note: I adore Scott, and care a lot about Scott/Allison - I can deal with a breakup between them, but I'd really prefer if you treated him and their relationship respectfully if you did so. I am also into poly and would love a femslash Allison story where she is also dating Scott in the background, if that is something you are into! Don't feel obliged - just, you know, if you're going to bring up Scott please treat him well.)

Anyway! I really love how Allison and Erica's relationship is framed so that it looks like it's about Scott, but it's really, really not - they just hate each other. They have so much chemistry, and I'd love to see more of that. Or alternatively, see them figuring out some kind of common ground, working together. Feel free to either use or ignore the last couple episodes of Season Two.

Lydia/Ms Morell, the counsellor (WHY DOESN'T SHE HAVE A PROPER NAME UGH SHOW!), is a bit of an odd one, but I really like their chemistry in the few scenes they've had together, and the reveal about Ms Morell at the end of the last episode has me so excited, I'd really love to find out who she is and what she is doing. My dream would be a complicated mentor/mentee relationship between Ms Morell and Lydia, where Ms Morell teaches her about being awesome and surviving the supernatural - but honestly, anything between these two characters that preserves their prickly, competitive tension would be amazing. (Something that took into consideration Bianca Lawson's acting history and made her some kind of Slayer-esque hero would be EVEN MORE AMAZING - but whatever you want, really!)

With Allison/Kate - well, I feel like in boyslash, it's almost a cliche to take a fucked up family or mentor relationship and turn it sexual, and I don't see why boys should get all the fun! They genuinely loved and cared about each other, but it also went so wrong, and I'd definitely like to see a sexual element to that. Um, obviously with this one I am totally cool with dark/fucked up/unhappy endings. And if you want to bring Kate back from the dead I am also cool with that!



2. Revenge, Amanda Clarke/Emily Thorne

There's a lot I like about this cracky, crazy show, but Amanda and Emily are the only thing I really love. Their chemistry is through the roof, I love their shared history and shared secrets. And it's an old trope, but stoic people who pretend they don't care but really do is one of my favourite things. It's debatable, of course, but I think there is an argument to be made that Emily really does care about Amanda, even as she's playing her. Amanda was with her in juvie for a long time, she knows the angry, violent side of Emily. She might currently be suppressing it to play the perfect society princess - but Emily is also the violent girl who survived years in prison, and Amanda is one of the only people who knows that side of her.

And I really don't think it's much of a stretch to imagine that they were having sex back then, too.

I'd love any kind of story with these two, really - juvie or just after it, a story set during canon where Emily knows she should stay away but just can't help herself. An AU would also be awesome - maybe where Emily never found out the truth about her father and tracked Amanda down again, maybe one where Emily did decide to give up on her revenge and run away with Amanda instead.

Amanda and Emily as con artists or something together somewhere (Vegas! the Riviera!) would basically be my dreeeam - but anything with these two would just be amazing, honestly.
