Has it really been over two months since I posted last? ugh. At some point I will babble about the television I've been watching, including The Defenders which I actually enjoyed SORRY to be weird as usual. But before that, I really need a reader for my [ profile] dcu_bang story?

I do have one beta already on it but I think it came out a little wordy for her to handle on her own. Kara/Mon-El divergence AU, 36k. You don't have to be a hardcore grammar nerd unless that's your thing, here's the list of things that probably need checking:

-did I get excited by an idea and fail to finish the sentence I was working on
-did my phone app insert a word in the middle of a different word just to fuck with me
-is my portrayal of Krypton distractingly weird to someone more familiar with the wider DCU (for this you would only need to read the first 10k!)
-do the action scenes make any sense
-does the rest of it make any sense

If you can only read for one of these things it would be perfectly cool and a ten day or less turnaround would be ideal?

PS it mostly takes place on Daxam, so warnings for Daxam being a terrible place! Nothing graphic though.

And while you are doing that I will try not to flub this [community profile] fandomgrowthexchange deadline, ugh. They have open pinch hits if unlike me you are not already screwing up the whole writing to a schedule thing.

Yuletide Time!

st_aurafina: (Yuletide: panic!)
[personal profile] st_aurafina
Welp, I have lived long enough to have reached my twelfth Yuletide. I am surprised and pleased at this outcome, especially after the way that 2017 rolled in for the whole world.

Anyway. Yuletide is always fun for me, I've always loved my gifts, and I try to generally be chill about the process, so I hope I can make your assignment easy and enjoyable for you, too. My letters tend to be long – please don't worry! I am chatty, and excited that we share a fandom. I am all on board with optional details being optional: you go and ODAO if you have to. We have connected over our love for a fandom. I will love what you write.

I've put down ideas for each fandom – they are honestly just random things that have occurred to me as I write my letter, things that would be cool to read. I'm not particularly attached to any one idea (or fandom, for that matter), but wanted to throw out some prompts in case you're the kind of writer that likes prompts or wants to get an idea of how I view the fandom. If you find those prompts too constrictive, please fly free! I love the fandom, I love all the characters, I love the way that people are fannish about the characters. I am a fan of fandom, so show me how you love the characters we matched on, and I will be happy. I promise.

After eleven of these letters, I've got my likes and dislikes pinned down, so I've cut and pasted them from previous letters:
Likes and dislikes )

I've talked about the specific fandoms under the cut, with possible scenarios or prompts. I talk more about some than others, but please understand I have no favourite. It's just what has come to mind as I write the letter. I would be happy with fic for any of these fandoms.

There are important spoilers here for Westworld and The Good Place, so if you're browsing letters, please be careful!

Beautiful Losers II – Jack Vettriano, The Defenders, New Rules – Dua Lipa, Doctor Strange, Westworld, The Good Place )

If we've matched on a large canon, and it's not going to work for you, I've got a few small and easily accessed canons here:
A painting: Beautiful Losers II, Jack Vettriano
A music video: New Rules – Dua Lipa.

For stalking purposes, I'm [ profile] st_aurafina and [ profile] st-aurafina. All my previous Dear Author letters are here: Dear Author. If you have any questions, you're welcome to message my partner, [personal profile] lilacsigil. She will keep your secret for life, or at least until after reveals.

Thank you so much for writing! I hope your Yuletide is fantastic.

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing a story for me! I've tried to put plenty of information for each fandom, but if you would like to write something completely different please feel free! I am also happy for you to include as many or as few of the nominated characters as you wish. If you're not sure about anything, or want to do a crossover with another fandom and need to check if I know it, just ask my partner [personal profile] st_aurafina.

Things I enjoy: stories about female characters, plot, character interaction, gen fic, slash, femslash, female-centric het, exploring a canon world. I also like OCs as a way to expand the canon universe, so if that's a direction you want to go, that would be great. AUs are awesome – both in the sense of a deviation from canon and a completely different world – as long as they're not mundane AUs. Coffee shop no, superpowered coffee shop yes.

Things I don't enjoy: non-con or rape, non-canon character deaths (canon deaths are fair game), mentor/student, adult/teen or adult/child sexual interaction, zombies, apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic AUs, mundane AUs.

Yuletide letter

afrikate: Ray Kowalski is getting his geek on, with his clip on shades flipped up (Default)
[personal profile] afrikate
Dear lovely Yule-person,

Thank you so much for writing me a story in one of my tiny fandoms. I'm so excited to see the story you write, and I hope that you enjoy writing it! 

Overall, things that I love:
+ Snark and banter
+ Angst with a happy ending
+ Slow and realistic building of relationships, particularly polyamorous relationships
+ Addressing relationship challenges realistically
+ AUs

Overall dislikes and things I really don't want to see:
+ Dystopia and US politics AUs 
+ Embarrassment or humiliation kink
+ gratuitous violence and gore
+ pregnancy, babies, adoption
+ Unlikely to come up this year, but stories set in developing countries that don't reflect sociopolitical realities
+ Bestiality/vore

Now, onto the specifics...

The Keltiad
Dear Author, this series is one of my absolute faves, I love it to pieces, it was so formative for me. As I said, aside from Aeron and Theo having a sexual relationship, I'd love anything you write here. Some specific ideas:
+ Show me the conversations that took place between Rhodri and Gwydion, Gwydion and Aeron, Aeron and Rhodri as Aeron's first marriage was going forward. How did these three deal with the dynamics? If you want to go to Gwydion/Rhodri place, that's fine. I want to see how these three ended up dealing with the political realities of their lives.
+ Tell me about Aeron and Rhodri's honeymoon--they got such a short time together, what was it like? How did they suit?
+ What happens to Gwydion and Aeron after they defeat Jaun Akhera and have to become a true ruling couple?
+ Show me how Aeron and Theo's friendship develops

Cynster Family Saga
I love Devil's Bride and have read a lot of the Cynster series over the years. I'd love it if you bring in the other Cynsters, or maybe Lady Osbaldstone or Dowager Duchess Helena. Their relationship has such a spark, and I'd love to see what happens over the years-- how do they deal with the troubles they have. What happens when they're at odds? How do they deal with their children? Slices of life would be lovely here.

Alpha and Omega series
I've been deep in this series for a while (I'm writing a fusion between A&O and the MCU) so I've gotten to know it well. I asked for Asil and Bran because there's so much history between them and the books give these tantalizing hints. Show me some of their history-- what happens when they meet for the first time? Do they have adventures in Europe? What do they gossip about and how are things in their current, shared pack? What did Asil think about meeting Mercy for the first time? 

I don't really see these two in a romantic light and I think neither would cheat on their mates. But if they met before they were mated, or in between mates, I could see them having a fling. Who would seduce who? What kind of dominance battle would sex between them be? How would their experiences and cultures shape a relationship between them? And how would that relationship shape the wolf packs of Europe?

It may take some time for me to respond to you on Christmas morning-- I'll be with family. But I promise to provide feedback as soon as I can. I'll be thrilled with anything you write!
