Hi! I'm excited you're writing me a story! Thank you for taking on one of these requests.

First up, what I do and don't like in fic. In addition to the like/dislike blocks below, I have fic likes and dislikes tags on Tumblr and here on LJ. I'm cool with gen or pairing fic, sex or no sex. I've tried to give you a variety of ideas for each fandom if you want somewhere to start from, but please feel free to go somewhere else with your story if there's something else you want to write. Most of the suggestions below are pretty mild, but I am totally into kink fic if that's something you want to write.

Likes: Clothes sharing, d/s, women, relationships between equals, people being smart/competent, people acting like adults, soulbonding and other variations on meant to be, they have to get married, cuddling, happy endings, well-structured endings, kids and babies, dialogue, snappy dialogue, people who are practically married before the romance/sex, slowly developing relationships, relationship negotiations of all kinds, kink negotiation, unconventional parenting arrangements, judicious parceling out of backstory/exposition, a/b/o, d/s AUs, people making reproductive choices, werewolves, non-creepy possessiveness, poly/poly V/open/unconventional relationships, nonsexual intimacy (sex is also good), power dynamics, feminist themes, dialogue.

Dislikes: Embarrassment (especially teenage embarrassment), misogyny, historical AUs based on actual history (I do like fake historical AUs, like regency romances where same-sex marriage is just as respectable as opposite-sex marriage), randomly inconsistent pov, abrupt endings, endings that throw out the entire premise of the rest of the story, an overabundance of teenage angst, first person, trope inversions, infodumps, things that are going to make me feel anxious or full of dread while reading (I like things that are prickly and difficult, just not in a doom is coming or embarrassment sort of way).

Now on to specific fandoms:

AT&T Lily Commercials, Bourne (Damon movies), The Killing, Ned & Stacey, Push (2009) )

Hi! I'm excited you're writing me a story! Thank you for taking on one of these requests.

First up, what I do and don't like in fic. The long version is below, and I have fic likes and dislikes tags on Tumblr and here on LJ if you want more than that. Short version: I like nonsexual intimacy (sex is good too), power dynamics, relationships between equals, feminist themes, dialogue. I dislike misogyny, abrupt endings, things that are going to make me feel anxious or full of dread while reading (I like things that are prickly and difficult, just not in a doom is coming or embarrassment sort of way). I'm cool with gen or pairing fic, sex or no sex. I've tried to give you a variety of ideas for each fandom, but please feel free to go somewhere else with your story if it works. Most of the suggestions below are pretty mild, but I am totally into kink fic if that's something you want to write.

Likes: Clothes sharing, D/s, women, relationships between equals (and yet D/s; it’s like a less complicated romance/erotica version of a koan), people being smart/competent, people acting like adults, soulbonding and other variations on meant to be, they have to get married, cuddling, happy endings, well-structured endings, kids and babies, dialogue, snappy dialogue, people who are practically married before the romance/sex, slowly developing relationships, relationship negotiations of all kinds, kink negotiation, unconventional parenting arrangements, judicious parceling out of backstory/exposition, a/b/o, D/s AUs, people making reproductive choices, werewolves, non-creepy possessiveness, poly/poly V/open/unconventional relationships.

Dislikes: Embarrassment (especially teenage embarrassment), misogyny, historical AUs based on actual history (fake historical AUs, like regency romances where same-sex marriage is just as respectable as opposite-sex marriage, are awesome), randomly inconsistent pov, abrupt endings, badly written endings, endings that throw out the entire premise of the rest of the story, an overabundance of teenage angst, first person, trope inversions, infodumps.

Now on to specific fandoms:

Dance Academy, Ice Princess, The Killing, Make It or Break It, Stitchers )

Hi there! I'm super excited that you're writing me a story! Thank you for taking on one of my requests.

Now, I know you're really here to figure out what the heck I might like. Luckily, I can help you with that. I did the very long kink/trope meme a while back, and here is a shorter fic likes and dislikes post. The very short summary version: I like women, dialogue, intimacy along the nonsexual plane (although sex is good too), and relationships between equals. I dislike misogyny, randomly inconsistent pov, abrupt endings, and anything that makes me feel anxious or embarrassed for the characters.

And now, some specifics about the fandoms I requested:

Make It Or Break It - The story of my heart is the one where Payson is a lesbian. If that is not your thing, that is okay! I would especially love anything about Payson's relationships with other women (I'm the person who nominated both Kim Keeler and Heather, even though I didn't specifically request either of them), or really anything about Payson as a person.

Push - I can't tell you why I love this movie so much. I think it's some combination of the fantastic colors, Dakota Fanning, and the psychic abilities. I would love a threesome or some other kind of Cassie-Nick-Kira chosen family thing, but really anything with all three of them would make my day.

Rizzoli & Isles - The thing I love most about this show is their bantering and conversation. I would also read femslash. Or a casefile. Or anything else that involves Jane and Maura being their awesome selves.

Thank you again, writer, for taking on my request(s). I'm looking forward to reading what you come up with!

♥ and happy writing,
Ruth

I found two things very interesting about this meme. First of all, it was longer every time I saw it. In that spirit, I've added a couple of things to it. Secondly, I was surprised by some of people's answers - even those of people I thought I knew really well. I would love to know what on here surprises you!

I have answered these as if the question regarding each item were, "Do you like this?" Unless otherwise specified, I will read - and enjoy - the things I've said no to when well-written, although I wouldn't click on them unless they were by someone I know is a good writer or they were part of a story with something else I wanted to read.

I loved [livejournal.com profile] sionnain's description of [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight's likes and dislikes, partly because it's not all what I would have expected based on [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight's writing. I'm not signing up for any exchanges (too many other projects, plus friends are working on talking me into NaNo), but it was so interesting to read that I thought it would be fun to do. Here are my fic likes and dislikes. Tell me yours!

Likes: Clothes sharing, d/s, women, relationships between equals (and yet d/s; it's like a less complicated romance/erotica version of a koan), space AUs, people being smart, soulbonding and other variations on meant to be, they have to get married, they have to touch, cuddling, happy endings, kids and babies, snappy dialogue, people who are practically married before the romance/sex (especially if they're oblivious to how together they are), slowly developing relationships.

Dislikes: Embarrassment (especially teenage embarrassment), misogyny, Mike calling Kevin "kid," historical AUs based on actual history (fake historical AUs, like regency romances where same-sex marriage is just as respectable as opposite-sex marriage, are awesome), randomly inconsistent pov, abrupt endings, an overabundance of teenage angst, first person, vegans eating meat (literal meat; euphemistic meat is fine, and cocksucking jokes are encouraged).

Brief Analysis: I apparently really like intimacy on a non-sexual level. And space. My dislikes are a little more of a hodgepodge of annoyances, but the theme of the things that seem to group together is that I don't like anything that's going to make me feel anxious or full of dread while reading.
