Hello exchangee! First let me say that if we share any of the fandoms on my list, CHANCES ARE we have a few things in common; at the very least, we share a common love of these characters! A few other things I love, narratively, include FREEDOM, loving equal relationships, dudes who think their girlfriends hang the moon, femslash, baby idealists, idealism in general, and adventure! Obviously the ways in which these apply will vary depending on what fandom you're writing for, but they give a good basic overview of what my narrative priorities are.

In terms of stuff I don't like- "darkfic" basically covers it. I'd like to avoid things like rape/abuse/death if at all possible (obviously in canons like Hexslingers or The Killing these things have already happened, but I'd rather not read about them happening AGAIN) and kinkwise I'm pretty much vanilla. That said, I AM completely open to you writing a fic that would qualify for Night On Fuck Mountain, if the mood strikes you!

Dear Yulegoat,


First of all, there's no pressure here; we share at least one fandom, so I assume we have at least some form of shared interest/shipping preferences. My only real hard rule is that I don't like angst or darkfic- nothing personal if you do! I've just had a rough couple of years, and I'm not really in a place at this point where I enjoy reading about people being unhappy. Like I said, that's my only really hard rule; I don't really have any kinks, so if you're writing smut (which I have NO objection to) vanilla is probably your best bet. If you want a really, really involved list of my narrative soft spots, you can read this, but you don't have to; I cover my individual Feels about my requests in this letter. Speaking of . . .

Hi there, scribbler! So I keep a handy list of Tropes I Like and Tropes I Don't for exchanges like this- you can read it here. Don't feel pressured to include everything- they're just suggestions! In general, I like fluff, cuddling, happy people in love, awesome ladies, and just people enjoying each other in general. I don't like angst (especially for queer characters- I get why it exists, but it exhausts me), death fic, or darkfic in general. I'm pretty chill when it comes to fic.

This meme is THE BEST IDEA EVER. Basically, comment on the source post with a lost of things you wish people would get into (books, movies, TV shows, etc) and in your LJ, expound a bit on what these things are and why you love them. People look at your list and say "I'll watch this show in exchange for graphics of this character," and the fandom love spreads!

HELLO INTERNETS. Do you enjoy:
  1. folk music
  2. the work of independent singer-songwriters
if you checked any of the above, you are in luck! One of my favourite musical artists, Heather Dale, just put out an entirely free, downloadable CD called PERPETUAL GIFT. It contains fourteen re-recorded versions of her most popular songs, as well as cover art! There is no price, and the only thing she asks in return is that you share the link around with your friends. The tracklisting is:
  1. Intro: Hi From Heather
  2. As I Am
  3. Choose
  4. Farmer’s Curst Wife
  5. Fisherman’s Boy
  6. Sedna
  7. The Holly and the Ivy
  8. Fairytale
  9. Mordred’s Lullaby
  10. One of Us
  11. Roddy McCorley
  12. Hunter
  13. Huron Carol
  14. Joan
  15. Up Into The Pear Tree
  16. Outro: How You Can Help

So you may not know this, if you're a first-time reader here, but I'm Canadian. As such, I'm pretty invested in our film and TV industry, which is a place with a lot of ups and downs. Sure we produced Hayden Christensen (and we are so, so sorry) but we also make some damn fine TV! Corner Gas, for instance, is an excellent Canadian TV show. So is Lost Girl. And then you've got our brand-new World War II drama, Bomb Girls, which- and I say this without exaggeration- is one of the best period dramas I've seen some out of the last few years.

Okay, so what's it about?Collapse )

Okay, so GLAAD just put out a list of queer characters currently on American television (not Canadian or British, hence why you might not see some characters) and formatted them as a list of who was a lead, supporting, recurring, etc, and split it up between cable and broadcast TV. I found it slightly confusing to scroll through and try to figure out why was bisexual, gay, lesbian, etc, and how to tell how many gay characters were leads as opposed to lesbian, how it varied by race, etc. So I made the ill-advised decision to sort the list by race and orientation and number them all. God help me.

The ListCollapse )
