First, ha, OMG, I know I'm the worst because I left my OD empty because I intended to edit the sign-up an then failed due to work etc. which is such an embarassing mistake to make. If I'm lucky, you checked for my LJ/tumblr and are reading this because you are great. Greater even than just the usual greatness that comes with doing Yuletide. So, thank you thank you thank you. I’m sure that anything you put together in one of my chosen fandoms will be thrilling.

Even if you are reading, obviously ODAO and I am happy to be surprised, but I do have this relatively short list of no-gos:

  • A/B/O-verses

  • mpreg

  • D/s

  • non-con

  • dub-con in the clearer sense of 1 party is clearly being manipulated/pushed into something or sex-pollen tropes, not in a much broader interpretation where consent might not be explicity stated in all cases if it's still clearly a mutual thing - e.g., I am fine with drunk sex if everyone's okay with it after

  • non-canon addiction or abuse stories

For those looking for a bit more guidance, likes across all fandoms are noted below:

  • Friendship - genuine affection between the characters or grudging respect-turned-to-friendship.

  • Stories that fill in gaps - pre-canon stories or slices of lives and stories that the canon didn’t tell

  • Stories that go beyond the canon - futurefic or characters/events that got dropped revisited.

  • Comedy and banter

  • Amnesia (I will always read every fic tagged with this in any new fandom I find) or anything related to memory

  • I don’t need a happy ending as long as whatever the ending is fits the story

  • I love case fic or day in the life stories or whatever version of that fits the fandom

  • There is no road trip in the history of time which I have not loved

Specific to ship fic (which I am absolutely in favor of):

  • Okay with slash, femslash, or het - if there's a pairing I cannot abide, I didn't request the relevant characters so all are welcome within my requests

  • I love romcoms and all the traditional tropes that come with that

  • "I hate you; let's fall in love later" is at the heart of many of my strongest OTPs

  • When it comes to angst, I'm always ready to indulge in a bit of hurt/comfort or long-term pining

  • Characters oblivious to their mutual attraction

  • Fake-marriage/relationship trope

  • That thing where someone thinks they're in a love triangle, but the 2 people they're into are actually the same person - like one IRL friend and someone else online. Damn, is there a succinct description of that trope that I just don't know? because I would like to make sense here and also be able to tag search. Anyway, if you know what I mean, cool, if not, ignore me.

  • Body-swap (I think I watched too many of those body-swap movies in the 80s and it really imprinted on me)

  • I prefer getting-together or falling apart fic to established-relationship domesticity

  • In general, I'm not a huge fan of hate-sex pairings unless it really fits the fandom/character

Okay, request-specific DNWs/likes/prompts.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries )

Archer )

iZombie )
Hamilton )

And that's a wrap. Hope some of this babble was helpful to you. I truly believe in ODAO and I have faith that you are likely better able to come up with something cool than I am, so please again, do not feel constrained by any of this. If it doesn't help, ignore everything and do not fear.

Happy Yuletide!
