Dear writer:

Thank you so much for writing me a fic! I'm super excited about this exchange, and I can't wait to read whatever you end up writing. I've included some prompts for each of my fandoms, but obviously these are optional if there's something else you'd prefer to write. Feel free to treat my general likes as prompts also, since these are things I enjoy in every fandom. (Also, I know that some of my fandom sections are shorter or longer than others, but please don't read anything into it - I desperately want fic for every fandom I requested!)

You can find me on AO3 as Zhailei.

General likes:

  • Ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, casefic, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, smut, apocalypses (zombie or otherwise), and ridiculous AUs

  • Tropes and clichés - fake dating, forced proximity, trapped together, sharing a bed, undercover missions, identity porn, accidental marriage, bachelor auctions, truth or dare, sex pollen, accidental stimulation, wall!sex, frottage, etc.

  • First times, secret relationships, casual hookups, ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships

  • People being in love without having to say it, people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it, ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person (willingly) completely embarrasses themselves, and small gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to

  • In general, I prefer fic on the happier end of the spectrum - happy (or at least hopeful) endings are my jam


  • DNW: Character studies/introspection/alternate POV on canon events, angst/darkfic/unhappy endings, unrequested pairings, first person POV, issue fic

    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 [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!)

    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.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! I had a great New Year's Eve, which consisted of staying home with my boyfriend, watching monster movies, and playing drinking game bingo. Fun! We watched Pacific Rim, Starship Troopers, Dragon Wars: D-War, and Jurassic Park, and it was EXCELLENT.

    It's also time for the requisite year in review stuff, so, a meme, courtesy of pretty much everyone on my friends list:

    OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I GOT FOUR YULETIDE FICS. FOUR. It's kind of hilarious, because last year I wrote, like, eight fics, and then this year I wrote my assignment and a pinch hit and no treats at all (though I am writing something that might go in the madness collection if I can finish it in time I HOPE SO BECAUSE THERE'S A BIT THAT'S KIND OF YULETIDE SPECIFIC - in an already super dated way - but oh well, I'll just NYR it if not), and this is the year I get ALL THE FIC.

    But I'm so not complaining because SOMEBODY WROTE ME AVALON HIGH FIC AGAIN. It's the second Avalon High fic I've gotten in exchanges this year, which means there are now approximately 200% more Avalon High fics in the universe than there were last year. (When I went looking on AO3 for fic, IIRC there was exactly one non-crossover fic and it didn't even have Allie in it, WHAT IS EVEN UP WITH THAT.) Chances of me continuing to request it in every exchange ever in the hopes of building an actual fandom: Super high.

    Also! Somebody wrote me the Bruce/Steph dirtybadwrong fic I've been requesting only roughly forever and it's SO GREAT I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU. And then I also got a super fun Dick/Steph fic AND and adorable Steph & Cass fic, WHAT DID I EVEN DO TO DESERVE THIS BECAUSE I WILL DO IT AGAIN.

    [livejournal.com profile] ladymercury_10 asked: How about top 5 comics?

    I decided to go with my favourite titles running (not necessarily starting) in 2013, though this was a lot harder to narrow down. There are a lot of comics I love not on this list, and this is by no means a list of what I thought were the *best* comics of 2013; just the ones that, for whatever reason, I'm really, really glad existed this year.

    5. Avengers Assemble. As much as I loved Jonathan Hickman's work on Fantastic Four, I found his Avengers really hard to follow, even before the Infinity crossover; it's all very cool, it's just not really my thing. Avengers Assemble, on the other hand, is exactly what I want from an Avengers comics; it's light-hearted and funny and has developed some amazing relationships between the cast members (Carol and Jess in particular, though I'll also never not love Hulk's crush on Jess), and it's just a consistently fun comic I look forward to every month.

    4. FF. I love Fraction's Hawkeye as much as the next person (well, except for the people who hate it), but of his current comics, I think I love FF even more. The art is fantastic, the characters are adorable and their relationships really well-drawn, and it's just plain fun, which is apparently the theme I'm following with this list. Plus, it has She-Hulk, so really, what's not to love?

    3. Fearless Defenders. Which, yes, had a tendency towards back-breaking art and a bit more fluff than content, but I just loved it so much. Women! Kicking ass! Having fun! Liking other women! I love that the cast was made up of some lesser-known Marvel characters, I love that it was fun and ridiculous and didn't take itself too seriously, and I hate that it was cancelled. (I am comforted by knowing that Marvel is launching a bunch of titles I'm super excited about in its place, but still.)

    2. Rat Queens. Which has had all of three issues so far, but it's probably my favourite new comic of 2013, and one of my favourite things coming out this year, period. It follows an all-female group of adventurers in a D&D-style fantasy setting and it's funny and amazing, and if that's the kind of thing you like, you should check it out, because so far I love it to pieces.

    1. My favourite comic not just in 2013, but of all time: Saga. I fell in love with it from the very first page, and everything it's done since then has only made me love it more. I love the characters and their relationships, I love the world, I love the art, I love that some worlds have pyramid-shaped suns and doughnut moons because Brian K. Vaughan may have been drunk that one time, I love Lying Cat and the Robot Kingdom and The Stalk (still!) and basically there's just nothing I don't love, so. Saga. Will always be my answer to this.

    Honourable mentions: So many! In no particular order, Lazarus, Sex Criminals, The Private Eye, Red Sonja, Amazing X-Men, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man, X-Men, Young Avengers. And Batman: Li'l Gotham, aka. the only thing DC is currently putting out that I love (and which is ending soon, sigh).


    You can still ask me my top 5 [anything] of 2013, here or on tumblr. Previously: Top 5 comics pages/panels of 2013 (and of all time).

    [livejournal.com profile] dhampyresa asked: Top 5 pages/panels from comics?

    This was actually a lot easier than I thought it'd be, but at the same time I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch of things, and there's a lot I'm leaving out. In the end, this is mostly "comics panels/pages that give me a lot of feelings," and it's fairly DC/Batfamily heavy, but, well, feelings. (Also contains spoilers, mostly for Blue Beetle and Batman Incorporated/Batman & Robin.)

    Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] summerstorm and [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster!

    Basically everything Marvel's doing right now is making me very, very excited. First they announced the new Ms Marvel title, in which the titular character is Kamala Khan, a Muslim teenager inspired by Captain Marvel to become a superhero. I love everything about that sentence. Carol Corps! More teenage girl superheroes who are heroes because they want to be, thank you very much. (Just keep Captain America away from her.)

    And then they announced they'll be making four Netflix series focusing on Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, and Matt Murdock, followed by a Defenders miniseries. LUKE CAGE. JESSICA JONES!!!! <3 <3 A Jessica Jones series is basically my dream, pretty much second only to She Hulk: Single Female Lawyer. Which, can we make that happen now, please? I mean, if you really want David E. Kelley to make superhero shows, it makes a hell of a lot more sense than Wonder Woman.

    Plus there are a bunch of new ongoing series I'm really looking forward to - She-Hulk! Black Widow! New Captain Marvel! FOUR FOR YOU, MARVEL. YOU GO, MARVEL.
