I am so excited about this exchange, I can't even begin to tell you. I love vids! And I love these fandoms, and I am already 100% guaranteed to love a vid in any of these fandoms.

General vid things I love: Ensemble vids. Character studies. Fun shippy vids. Vids that highlight some of my favourite things about the source. Vids that point out something I never noticed in the source. Vids that give me chills. Vids that make me cry. Vids that make me laugh. Vids that make me clap my hands in glee. Vids that use music I love, and music that's completely new to me, and music that obviously goes with that source, and that I never would have through to pair with the source but works surprisingly well. Basically, I just really love vids.

(Things I don't love: Gimmicky music/audio source, talking in vids, a lot of effects. Generally, I prefer fast-paced vids to ones that are slow and lingering.)

Dear writer:

Thank you so much for writing me a fic! I'm sure it's going to be amazing, and I'm so looking forward to reading it. These are some ideas/extra information/things that would make me especially happy, but if my optional details don't work for you, or if you already have an idea in mind, I'd much rather get a great story you're really excited about than something mediocre tailored exactly to my requests.

You can find me on AO3 as Zhailei.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] shipswap writer:

Thank you so much for making me something! I'm sure I'll love whatever you end up creating, but in general: I love ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocafic, and ridiculous AUs. I'm not super into angst, and I prefer fics where characters interact with people and do things over introspective character studies. I really, really, love tropes and clichés, and totally ridiculous, over the top plots, the more shameless the better. I love first times, and secret relationships, and casual hookups, and partners, and ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships. I love people being in love without having to say it, and people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it, and ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person completely embarrasses themselves, and small gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to. Most of all, I love characters who are genuinely really into each other. I'm happy to read any rating; smut is welcome but absolutely not necessary, though for this particular exchange I do want fic where the characters actually hook up/are together in some way. (In other words: makeouts, please!)

My username is Zhailei on AO3. My official requests are for fic, but I'm happy to receive art treats if that's your jam.

(This is still a slight work in progress. Please forgive me - I've been without internet access the better part of the last two weeks, and am desperately trying to cobble this together as quickly as possible!)

Dear author/vidder/artist:

Hi there! First of all, I'm so, so sorry this is going up late, and I hope it didn't cause you any stress - and if you've already started writing, or had an amazing idea, please feel free to go with that and not worry about my latter. If, on the other hand, you've been hanging out for some prompts, here they are!

In general: I love ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocafic, and ridiculous AUs. I'm not super into angst, and I prefer fics where characters interact with people and do things over introspective character studies.

Most of all, I love characters who are genuinely really into each other. I'm happy to read any rating, and smut is welcome but absolutely not necessary. (Though if you're writing for Shipswap, please do have the characters actually hook up in some way in the story. Makeouts = <3).

I am not procrastinating, I am taking breaks. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

A couple of recent topics from [community profile] fannish5 (with some spoilers for the relevant fandoms):

Five (canon) couples that seemingly came out of nowhere

Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place; The Vampire Diaries; The O.C.; Veronica Mars; Buffy the Vampire Slayer )

Who are your five favourite female characters of colour?

Battlestar Galactica, Wizards of Waverly Place, Andromeda, Greek, The Office )
amathela: ([andromeda] harper/rommie)
This is one of the things I started working on ages ago, and never got around to posting - but better late than never, right? Andromeda fanmix, about the Andromeda Ascendant in all her forms, songs in .mp3 and .m4a format.


I'm a warship )
amathela: ([andromeda] rommie)
Finally getting back to the stuff that was put on hold for the past week, yay! This ended up being a little longer than intended, but whatever, it's done. Harper/Andromeda fanmix and picspam, probably not dial-up friendly; includes images from seasons one and two, no major spoilers.


I was made to love you )

Ten fics in September, in three fandoms - one familiar (Battlestar Galactica) and two new (Andromeda, Wizards Of Waverly Place ♥). About 37,000 words in total(!):


Never Happened (Andromeda - Harper/Andromeda - PG-13 - 100 words) There's one way to take Harper's mind off the Magog. Spoilers up to episode 2:2 - Exit Strategies.


Buy Now Pay Later (Battlestar Galactica - Sharon, Kara - PG - 350 words) Sharon, Kara, and drinking games. Set pre-series.


And Our Future's Looking Bright (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - NC-17 - 8116 words) There are, like, three thousand colleges in the country, and Justin still picks one right in New York City.

Bewitched, Bothered, And Bewildered (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG-13 - 8884 words) All Alex wanted was to get her parents back together. Nobody told her the spell she used would have consequences for her, too. (Okay, they did, but seriously, who reads the fine print?)

Blackmail Is Such An Ugly Word; How About Fishpaste? (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG-13 - 10,234 words) Justin uses magic without permission. Alex catches him. (And then they fight robots.)

Do Over (And Over) (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG - 500 words) This is how it doesn't happen. Spoilers up to episode 1:2 - First Kiss.

Falling Through Your Clothes (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG - 1204 words) Alex paints in one of Justin's shirts. Justin isn't amused.

Guitar Hero (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - NC-17 - 1982 words) They're totally rock stars. Spoilers up to episode 2:11 - Make It Happen.

Spin Spin Sugar (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - R - 1847 words) Turnabout is fair play (and they're only playing). Spoilers up to episode 1:12 - Justin's Little Sister.

The Night Moves (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - NC-17 - 4270 words) Justin and Alex find themselves trapped in a closet, with no way out and nothing to do. (Well, okay, maybe not with nothing to do.) Spoilers up to episode 1:14 - Wizard School (Part Two).


I haven't written this much ... well, since Veronica Mars. It's kind of awesome.

Anyway, I spent yesterday watching Brothers & Sisters to get into that head space, so now I'm going to finish my femgen fic. And then probably write some more Wizards Of Waverly Place fic, because, well.

Title: Never Happened
Fandom: Andromeda
Pairing(s): Harper/Rommie
Word Count: 100
Rating: PG-13

Summary: There's one way to take Harper's mind off the Magog.

Notes: Spoilers up to episode 2:2 - Exit Strategies.

Compartmentalisation, in one easy step )
amathela: ([film] clueless)
Fic writing was kind of sparse in August, but I did get one thing written:


Kinda Gay (One Tree Hill - Brooke/Peyton - PG-13 - 1103 words) How Brooke Davis learns that gay isn't a four-letter word (unless Bevin is spelling it).


I blame the dearth of real fic-related accomplishments partly on my absence in the first part of the month, and partly on doing other things - working on fanmixes, mostly, but also putting together some vid recs (that I should be posting soon) and starting an original fic project, which is way fun. And hunting down new and interesting forms of entertainment - Andromeda, which I'm not ashamed of (it's cheesy awesome, and I love Rommie), and Wizards Of Waverly Place, which I kind of am. (But only kind of. Or not really. Whatever, I own my guilty pleasures.)

I also went bowling with my sister (belatedly) for her birthday, which was a lot of fun, and have officially booked a trip to New Zealand in January to see my mum, which should be awesome; the last time I saw her was in November, and I feel guilty about that. If only she weren't an international flight away. And if only I could actually afford to fly internationally.

Anyway, more fic should (hopefully) be forthcoming this month, and I'm planning on hosting another round of [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble soon, before the holiday ficathon period gets well and truly underway. I usually sign up for one fandom-specific ficathon in addition to Yuletide and Pretty Lights - last year it was Merlin, the year before it was SGA - and honestly, right now I have no idea what that might be. Possibly Star Trek - [livejournal.com profile] ladies1st is totally relevant to my interests - but I wouldn't mind doing something a little ... smaller fandom-related. Anyway, I look forward to being surprised :)
