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 have not watched ALL the vids, because that would be insane (there are 174 vids!), but I did watch a lot, and they are all awesome. Since (unfortunately) I can't rec every single vid, here are a few of my very favourites:

    Why are there no Whip It vids, universe? This is obviously a wrong that must be corrected. And now I kind of want a Disney RPF/Whip It fusion WHERE DEMI AND SELENA JOIN ROLLER DERBY, COME ON, IT WOULD BE AWESOME. I also think there should be a Zac/Vanessa Back to the Future AU, IDEK. But Zac Efron kind of reminds me of a young Michael J Fox, so, clearly it should be a thing.

    Also, in things that aren't related but sound like they are, I really think somebody should vid Psych to Whip It (the song). Devo is still cool, right?

    Anyway, I spent all weekend copying everything on my computer to an eternal HD, erasing my hard drive, and installing a new operating system. (Before that, I was running Tiger, which. New software wouldn't run on my computer! So this is much better.) And then reinstalling everything. Which took a long time, but I ended up with, like 20GB of extra space on my hard drive, so I'm not complaining.

    And I watched Brothers & Sisters, which - apparently Joe Jonas was supposed to be on the show? Really old casting + episode spoilers )

    Um, and I signed up for twitter, so I guess I'm doing that now?

    Seven fics in July, in four fandoms - including three new fandoms (Dollhouse, Psych, and Star Trek XI) and one familiar one (Battlestar Galactica). Three remixes, two porn battle/kink meme entries, one Sweet Charity fic, and a ficathon pinch hit; about 12,500 words, all told.

    Don't Be Afraid, You're Already Dead (Resurrection Remix) (Battlestar Galactica - Racetrack - PG-13 - 1135 words) First thing they tell you is to assume you're already dead. A remix of Into The Underworld by [personal profile] rose_griffes. Spoilers up to episode 4:13 - The Oath.

    Dragon Wars: D-War (Realistic Projection Remix) (Battlestar Galactica - Ensemble - PG-13 - 3833 words) There's a dragon on board Galactica. A remix of The Stories We Tell by [ profile] lls_mutant. Set during season one. Spoilers up to episode 4:15 - No Exit.

    Restless (Battlestar Galactica - Lee/Boomer - NC-17 - 1289 words) A few days after the Cylons attack, everything starts to blur a little at the edges. Spoilers up to episode 1:1 - 33, plus a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to episode 4:20 - Daybreak.

    Sleeper (Anywhere But Here Remix) (Battlestar Galactica - Anders, Boomer - PG-13 - 1246 words) I'm a frakking Cylon. A remix of Empty. Vulnerable. Missing Something. by [ profile] aprilleigh24. Spoilers up to episode 4:20 - Daybreak.

    Evidence Of Things Not Seen (Dollhouse - Paul/Mellie - PG-13 - 1628 words) There's an apocalypse, a deal with the devil, and a girl. In the end, it always comes down to a choice. Spoilers up to episode 1:12 - Omega.

    If You Can't Stand The Heat, Don't Set Yourself On Fire (Psych - Shawn/Juliet - PG - 2515 words) A heat wave hits Santa Barbara. A crime wave isn't far behind.

    What I'm Trying To Say (Star Trek - Kirk/Gaila - PG-13 - 885 words) Gaila only wanted to do something nice.

    In other news ... I may be falling back in love with Stargate Atlantis? I started rewatching it recently (at least, the first three seasons), and, I don't know. I really used to love this show. I think maybe I'm not as done with the fandom as I previously expected. (In which case, ha! I knew I could never leave a fandom for good. In your face, eight-months-ago me!)

    We have a house inspection coming up, which means the house is now really clean. Like, it's not completely spotless and empty, because we have a lot of stuff, but I kind of like having it all around - it makes the place feel very lived-in. Of course, that's not to say it wouldn't be nice to have a little more space, so that we could maybe have people stay over occasionally and have somewhere to put the dance mat, but I'll settle for it being clean.

    Also, I watched Psych:

    Also, I'm completely caught up on Greek, which makes me happy. I think I enjoyed the first half of season one a lot better than the second - it felt like it got bogged down a little towards the end, with so much romantic drama that it kind of overshadowed everything else.
