amathela: ([btvs] dreams)
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

    (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. 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 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, 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).

    [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).
    amathela: ([comics] wolverine is a jerk)
    [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.

    In related news, I wrote a thing for [livejournal.com profile] rarecharacters:

    OMGWTF YULETIDE. But signups are open now, so hopefully we're through the worst of it. And Gwen Stacy I'm sorry, Clone Gwen Stacy made it in in the end, which I didn't actually expect to happen? So now I really want to request Ultimate Comics Spider-Man because I need ALL THE GWEN FIC, except I already have six requests and I love them all and don't want to drop them. Dilemmas! But at least this was the perfect time to be reading Maggie Fitzgerald and the Saltwater Drip, a fantastic Amazing Spider-Man fic where Gwen, not Peter, develops spidey superpowers, and that's exactly what I've been doing.

    I've also been adding download links to the Miss Match fandom primer in the vague hopes that anybody anywhere will ever want to watch it. I don't even need yuletide fics that I've requested six years in a row! I'd settle for being able to squee about it with other people (*hint* you should totally go watch Miss Match it's adorable the links are right there). The first seven episodes are up so far, and I'm hoping to get the rest up before signups close.

    ... and in the running tally of Stupid Stuff Done By Comics Publishers, DC pulls back into the lead. (Was there ever any doubt?)

    Marvel launches Mighty Avengers, which, unlike the previous title of that name (which I was so excited about, because CAROL!!! and etc. but turned out to be mostly terrible) looks like it could be really great, Greg Land notwithstanding. LUKE CAGE <3 <3 <3 (Though this does torpedo my burning desire for a Jessica Jones, Superhero title featuring Luke Cage, Stay-At-Home Dad, but lets be real, that only ever existed in my head in any universe.)

    Meanwhile, DC is totally keeping all its promises and maintaining the integrity of its core values no wait, the other thing. Like, we know we said you'd get 22 pages of story for $2.99 with no numbering gimmicks, but we actually meant that'd happen sometimes when we felt like it and definitely not in September, when you can get (probably) 20 pages of story for $3.99 and point one numbering but, um, shiny covers?

    (I am still totally getting the Rogues issue and Forever Evil tie-in, though, because I love me some Rogues and I DON'T KNOW HOW TO QUIT YOU DC.)

    Also, to no-one's surprise, the creator exodus from DC keeps on coming, with allegations of bullying from the editorial team. And some of the BEST AND MOST SUPER NECESSARY editorial comments, including the TOTALLY TRUFAX OBSERVATION that Batman doesn't sit down. Which means Batman Sits is obvs my favourite tumblr right now.

    In more comics news, ugh. Rick Remender is an asshole, which shouldn't surprise me, because comics, but does disappoint me, because I enjoy a lot of his work (particularly his run of Uncanny X-Force, which I've fallen completely in love with). Whatever. Comics.

    Also, I'm on a major Once Upon a Time binge right now, and have finally reached season two. (Okay, fine, I'm just watching so I can be caught up and actually see Aurora and Mulan, who I already ship like burning. Whatever. Tumblr.)

    Also, reading the solicitation for last month's Hawkeye (yes, I was reading old solicitations, so what?), I'm now convinced that Hawkeye is the Marvel universe's Gossip Girl:

    This will be… confusing.
    Xoxo, Hawkeye

    Somebody write me that fic? (And yes, that's the solicitation in full. Hawkeye has some of my favourite solicitations.)

    Speaking of Gossip Girl: YAY DAN IS WINNING HIS BRACKET. OBVS, THOUGH. So is Scott, which I'm super happy about, even though I voted for Jade (I HAD TO SHE'S MY FAVE, I CAN STAN FOR SCOTT NEXT ROUND.) And Artemis is losing, sad forever. Those are kind of the only races I care about though? OH WELL GOING TO LOOK FOR MORE DAN HUMPHREY GIFS.
