Hello hello hello! Thank you so much for signing up for this endeavor, and, first of all: if you have an idea that's grabbed you from the assignment alone, feel free to run with it! Everything below is entirely optional and I don't want to kill your muse at all. Otherwise, some details:
In general, I like: fic paced on the fast side; characters who are good (and/or passionate) at what they do; characters who desperately, achingly want
something. I like events that are morally complicated. It fills me with glee to see tropes being subverted; I like deconstruction. Lastly, I'm incredibly fond of fics with science as a large component (fandom-specific details below).
On the flipside, I'm not into pure PWPs. Porn is fine, but for me, more optional than plot. I'm not too fond of crossovers. I don't like long stretches of introspection. While I don't have any triggers per se and in other situations adore ambiguous endings, in cases of sexual assault I'd like at least the beginning of recovery to be clearly depicted. Lastly, I have no problems reading any of slash/het/femslash/gen, but some ship preferences are listed with fandoms (not mandatory! just for your reference ♥).( Orphan BlackCollapse )( Protector of the SmallCollapse )( The Social Network RPFCollapse )( A Study in EmeraldCollapse )
I hope this helped furnish you with something to work with? Thank you, lovely author, and happy Yuletide!
P.S. Sorry about the plentiful f-locks /o\ For any Yule-stalking purposes, here's an AO3
