kate: The Losers in standard V TV walking formation (Losers: TEAM!)
OMG, thank you so much, my friend, for making a fanwork just for me. I love many, many things about The Losers, and exchanges, and this exchange in particular.

So first off, I would love absolutely ANYTHING you would like to make. Fic, art, podfic, meta, gifs, icons, interpretive dance, and macaroni castles. I love literally EVERYTHING that you might make that is in any way considered a fanwork and involves The Losers.

After that, I... have to admit that it's late, and I'm tired, and I want to post something for you (because I am excite!) but I am too tired to list out my (many) fandom loves. So I'll just say: if you are a person who generates your ideas easily and have something you've always wanted to create? CONSIDER THIS PERMISSION TO GO NUTS! I would LOVE to get anything like that for a gift.

If you are someone that prefers a bit of direction, I will (lazily, omg, I'm so sorry /o\) point you at my dear creator letters tag and the make this for me tag, where I outline lots of things I have always wanted. Feel free to pick and choose and mix and match and throw it all in a blender if you like.

Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I hope you are as excited for this exchange as I am! <3
kate: Prentiss has the most beautiful smile (CM: Prentiss smiley)
I had not believed such a thing as WAGFAPE existed in the world, and I am so glad I chanced upon it in my galavanting around the internets.

First off, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING SOMETHING FOR ME OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. I AM SO EXCITE. I am sure I will love WHATEVER you make, and I have no opinions about things in or out of podfics (intros, music, sound effects, or straight up, nothing but words), so GO WILD. Do whatever your heart desires!

Second, I am super easy to please. For one, my number one favorite thing is your happiness. I want you to enjoy reading this story, and enjoy it enough that listening to it again and again while you edit is not (too much) of a chore. So I'd best prefer if you found a story you adored to record so that you get just as much enjoyment out of this as I do. I'd also love for you to read me one of your favorite stories - I feel like that really comes out in a reading, and it's one of my very favorite things in podfic.

Third, I love EVERYTHING. Seriously, just... I love all kinds of stories, all kinds of kinks, tropes, ratings, pairings (or not pairings)... I just love everything. I have a standard list of many many things I love, and another one that changes season to season, but the thing I'm looking for is a story that touches me in some way. Makes me laugh out loud. Makes you laugh out loud! (Some of my most favoritest stories to record were the ones were you can hear the laughter (or tears, gah, so many tears) lurking in my voice. I love those stories.) I'm not afraid of tears, so dark!fic is welcome, but I love laughter and love and cuddles too, if dark isn't your cuppa. I love to see loyalty and steadfastness, mistakes being made and then efforts to fix them (redemption fics are a huge fave), teaching of any sort (teaching in porn is a favorite), found family/team/brothers in arms, all those things are huge buttons of mine.

I like sexy fics, but if you are uncomfortable reading that, I'm happy to receive things that are lower on the ratings scale and/or gen. I prefer queer pairings, so for this fest, if you're going to do sexy times, I'd really rather see F/F (or multi-F/F/F), genderfluid characters, trans! or ace! characters, pretty much anything other than cis het. I love love LOVE platonic het relationships though (god, Olivia & Charlie (red or blue) FOREVER, or Red!Olivia & Red!Lincoln, or Dean & Charlie, I could eat them up with a spoon - as long as it stays completely platonic).

I'll put the few DO NOT WANTS up front here before I go into a bit of detail with my canons. There's only a few, and they are: character bashing, scat, mpreg. I am not super fond of A/B/O, though I must admit a female-centric A/B/O story where the political structure and history and just everything are dealt with does sound interesting. I'm okay with the rest of the normal biggies, though, so if you can do sad or scary or disturbing, I am happy to receive that!

Supernatural

This is a tough fandom for women and genderqueer characters, I will grant you. The women that are there are AMAZING, though, so let my name a few of my favorite characters and pairings. Charlie - ALLLLLLL THE CHARLIE, Dean & Charlie, Sam & Charlie, Dean & Sam & Charlie, Donna, Jody, Donna/Jody, WAYWARD DAUGHTERS, Claire, Claire & Castiel, Abbadon, Linda Tran, Jo, Jo & Ellen, Ellen/anyone, especially crossovers! (I've written Ellen/Aisha (The Losers), and I just stumbled across an Ellen/Buffy the Vampire Slayer. OOOOOOOOOH.) I've heard about Charlie/Jo and I love the concept but haven't read any - I'd be happy to get some of that!

I read a fic a while back that had genderfluid!Sam and I absolutely adored it (I think the pairing was Sam/Cas). I love Sam as genderfluid, or Cas as agender (which is canon, really, despite Castiel's current male (albeit lovely!) meatsuit), and I think there's a fair amount of fic about non-cis versions of Sam or Cas that would make for some lovely reading. I do any and all pairings in SPN, so no worries about stepping on toes there.

Leverage

PARKER. I love all the Parker. Here is, I grant you, one het couple I could take - Parker/Hardison. I love them together and would make an exception for fic about them. I love Eliot and Parker/Hardison/Eliot too, but unless Eliot is genderfluid or agender or something, I'm not really thinking that's for this particular challenge. I love casefic featuring Parker's skillset or introspective vignettes where she looks on her team with love, or pretty much anything about Parker, ever. I do like Sophie, too, but usually more as half of a F/F pairing - Sophie/Tara or Sophie/Maggie are both favorites of mine. I really prefer Parker with Hardison, so unless it's pre-series (or pre-Parker and Hardison getting together), I'd rather not have Sophie/Parker. Genderqueer Parker would be super-mega-awesome!

The Librarians

Cassandraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Seriously, every woman she's ever met (INCLUDING EVE, IN THE FAIRYTALE EPISODE) has fallen deeply in love with Cassandra, mostly at first sight. I love Cassandra, and every F/F pairing with her that exists. Cassandra/Lamia (particularly in that alternate universe) is a fave, as is Cassandra/every female minor character she's been on screen with. Gen fics about Cassandra and magic or becoming part of a team or her brain grape also welcome. I wouldn't turn down OT3 (Cassandra/Ezekiel/Jake) if one of the boys was genderqueer in some way, too. But focus on Cassandra would be preferred. That said, now that I've thought about genderqueer Ezekiel, I would totally go for a story about that, too, that would be brilliant.

Fringe

SO MANY AWESOME WOMEN. Olivia, Bolivia, Astrid (every Astrid, I love EVERY Astrid), Elizabeth (I love every iteration of her too), Nina (love every iteration of her too), Etta, and I'd be into genderqueer versions of Walter, Astrid, Lincoln, Olivia, or Broyles. Fringe is a fandom where I have read almost nothing, so I trust your judgement if this is the fandom of your heart! I'm not terribly into pairings, but I like the canon ones well enough, and mostly the aspect I like about all these folks is the team/family aspect.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

Oh, Phryne is wonderful, to be sure, but my heart is with Mac. I love Mac SO MUCH, and would love it if there were a story out there about the fling Mac and Phryne had pre-series. They just seem like they might have had a good time one night (or one week). I love Dot, too, and this fandom really hits my teaching kink pretty hard, so I'd be okay with just about anything as long as it features one or more of these delightful women (OR JANE! I LOVE JANE!). I'd love to see genderqueerness with regard to Mac, or even Jane, maybe, but I'm not particularly interested in any of the men in this fandom, even if they were genderqueer. I like Phryne/Jack and Dot/Hugh as pairings in canon, but I'd rather not have fic focused solely on that.
kate: The Losers in standard V TV walking formation (Losers: TEAM!)
Yeah, it's coming. Gimme a minute. <3

Okay, so, I'm late. And... having done the assignments already, I know who you are. (sorry!)

So I'm going to keep this sleek and trimmed down, and hopefully give you good ideas. If not - here is my dear creator letters tag and my make this for me tag. I'm super easy, and there has got to be SOMETHING in there that sparks an idea! Also, hit me up in chat and I'll spew things at you until something sticks.

But here, a few prompts and ideas:

1. Losers AUs. Give me the Losers at Hogwarts or on the bridge of the Enterprise or as a Leverage-like team! The Losers with superpowers, the Losers on a tall ship, the losers as pirates or ninjas or cats. Or hedgies or bunnies or elephants! HUNTERS (a la Supernatural) or angels or monsters that fight crime. GIVE ME ALL THE AUs!

2. Canon forks. Roque doesn't betray them! Cougar doesn't die (comics 'verse)! Aisha slots right in as part of the team! The snuke goes off!

3. Ridiculous cute fluff! Cougar takes care of Jensen when he's sick! Clay warms Roque up when he's cold! They all surround Pooch when he misses his wife! Aisha cooks for them all after a tough mission!

4. Cheesy, cheesy tropes! Jensen has amnesia! Cougar and Jensen have to go undercover as gay! Cougar, Roque, and Aisha accidentally adopt a kid! Aisha has an evil twin! Cougar goes through Groundhog Day until Jensen falls in love with him! THE TEAM ARE ALL SOULMATES!!!!

Hopefully that is something to work with. If not, poke me, and I will come up with more. <333
kate: Sam and Cas hugging (SPN: Sam/Cas happy hug)
DUUUUUUUUUUUDE. This is the best idea EVER. 300 words or a sketch not on lined paper. Plus the ability to write treats. Sign-ups through January 7th.

I'm soooooooooooo easy. )
kate: Kate Winslet is wryly amused (Default)
Damn it, I never wanted to be that person. It's happened a while ago, before tumblr, even, and to be honest, I'm not there as much as I was before, either.

I still love DW, and it's still my most beloved platform, my internet experience has just sort of shifted again, you know? How are you engaging with the internet, my dwircle? Are you still mostly here? Or elsewhere? Or everywhere?

It's almost time to do the year-end retrospectives, so you'll get a flurry of posts here, and then it'll be time for [community profile] snowflake_challenge again, which YAYYYYYYYYY that is my favorite time of year!

Also, [community profile] fandom_stocking goes into January again, so if you have time and inclination, head on over there to stuff a few stockings? Here is my stocking - if you have a stocking, drop a link in the comments? <333

Oh - and it's writing comm times again. I do two every year )
kate: Charlie from Supernatural grinning (SPN: Charlie profile happy)
I have no idea if Supernatural folks do this, but I like to write letters, and I cribbed most of what I wrote from my last sign-up anyway, which is what I'm going to do with this letter. So here you go.

I like to talk... a lot. )

My sign-up for posterity. )
kate: The Losers in standard V TV walking formation (Losers: TEAM!)
12/2/14 ETA: I promise, I will write this up! I am veeeeeeeeeery busy, but I will find the time in the next couple of days to get to this. PROMISE. In the meantime, if you want to get the gist of things I like (everything, really), you can check out my dear creator letters tag, there's three Losers letters in there and a host of other fandom/fest ones too.

12/8/14 ETA: Okay, here it is! I am writing my letter. Right now. I'm sorry I'm a horrible recipient.

BUT! You are a WONDERFUL fanwork giver, and I know this because you are making something for me! :D :D :D And I promise to cherish it forever and ever because OMG YOU ARE MAKING SOMETHING FOR ME.

So my number one rule of fannish exchanges is that I want them to be as guilt-free and awesome as possible. So if you have some Losers vid you are just dying to make, or you've been ruminating on meta about Cougar's hat, or you have a fic where the Losers are all snack foods.... HAVE AT IT. I would love any of those things and anything else that might come out of your brain.

That said, I do like to provide fodder for the inspiration mill, so if you want a little something more to go on, or just want to read to see if something sparks your interest, my rambling requests/likes/dislikes/whatever-the-hell-this-is is below.

Okay! Let's start with characters/pairings. I love all teams, ever. I love team with Roque, team with Aisha, team with both, whatever! My OTP is Cougar/Jensen, OT3 Aisha/Clay/Roque, OT4 Cougar/Jensen/Pooch/Jolene. I love Pooch/Jolene, too, of course, and enjoy Aisha/just about everyone, especially femslash. I love her especially in crossovers because I feel like she fits in everywhere. For characters, I love them all, but mostly my boys - Cougar, Jensen, and Pooch, and then Roque and Aisha, and, I'm sorry, JDM, but Clay just comes in last for me. If you love Clay - show me why? I'm always willing to be convinced!

Then there's genres and tropes and stuff? This is hard for me because seriously, I love everything. I love deathfic, fluff, cuddling and snuggling and hardcore non-con. Whatever you like, I like it too! Seriously, I read it all, and I am direly in need of two things lately: emotional release and sappy sweetness. I am good with either, both, whatever you want to give me, just go big.

I'm not an artist, so I don't have a lot to say about art except that I love all kinds of art from chibis to black and white sketches to watercolors to whatever. I love it all. I can't art to save my life so I will likely just stare at it for along time and be super super jealous. And then remember you made it for me and be all happy again!

I love crafts so much! I am not kidding when I ask for a macaroni castle - I really do want one, really, really. And then the harlequin romance that goes along with it. I've been promised tiny chainmail Losers from my wife if anyone does actually make a macaroni castle.

I also love the abstract and bizarre - the weirder it is, the more I love it! I've gotten drum solos before (brilliant), and the taort deck and board game are two of my very favorite Losers big bangs. I love love love off-the-wall fanworks, so knit me that tea cozy, go on!

I adore meta and vids and recs of all stripes, icons and podfic (oh, man, I freaking LOVE podfic), and whatever it is you create, I am sure to love it.

In fic, yeah. I'm just so easy. I love words, and I love The Losers, and you put the two together and I am seriously in heaven.

A few prompts, if you need (but remember rule #1 up there! GUILT FREE!):

+ An AU where the team is the Leverage team. You can mix them up any way you want, but seriously, HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE. Art of this would be AMAZING, as would fic, or a rambly voice post outlining how each character fits their role of grifter, hitter, hacker, thief, and mastermind.

+ Time lapse-sort of art where one of the team is going through a werecat change.

+ The team (or just Jensen, or Cougar and Jensen, or whoever!) in that moment, way before the soccer game, when Jensen sees his sister and niece again.

+ A lullaby for Pooch and Jolene's baby.

+ The epic tale of Cougar and Jensen, babysitters.

Hopefully that provides some inspiration - I love these guys, and I love fanworks, and I LOVE YOU. Thanks so much for making me something! :D :D :D

kate: John=flyboy Rodney=geek (theirloveissoobvious) (SGA: John/Rodney flyboy/geek)
My original sign-up under here, for convenience. )

First off! I love it. Whatever you've got in mind, I love it. I'm soooooo not kidding. You're making something special for me, you're putting your heart into it. I LOVE IT. No matter what it is. My #1 ironclad rule about exchanges is that I want you to enjoy what you are creating. I will love it for that reason alone. If you're having a hard time of it, scrap everything and just write something that brings you joy.

I seriously read and write everything, so whatever it is you write, no matter how angsty or fluffy, I will read and love it. I love permanent injury fic or deathfic or noncon (I have a thing especially for bondage and AMTDI and impossible choices (and the aftermath of said situations)) or slice-of-life, holiday fics, and domestic fics (I am a fan of domestic fics where nothing more than cooking dinner happens, kidfic, team movie nights). Or mysteries, casefic, missionfic, horror, humor, PWP (gimme the tentacles, ALL THE TENTACLES), if you can think of it, I will love it. I guarantee.

Even my do not likes are not ironclad (except scat) - I like A/B/O that has some interesting twist on it - a way to turn the system on its head. Mpreg isn't horrible, I just prefer that you not focus on the pregnancy part too too much. If you want to have one or the other person just being attentive to the other, or a "how did Rodney get pregnant?!?!!" fic, that's totally cool! Humiliation (especially with John) has been done beautifully and I've loved it, so it's not a complete no-go either. So if you think you have a way to make me love my DNW list, GO FOR IT. Just please, don't write scat. That's one I'm not really interested in learning to love.

I like to give a lot of suggestions as jumping off points, so don't feel like you have to do any of the scenarios suggested above. They're just my attempt at giving inspiration, ways to get the wheels turning, or the muse to spread their fairy dust, or whatever. I don't necessarily want those exact scenarios (though I certainly wouldn't turn them down!), I just want to give you ideas that will inspire something you really want to write.

Have fun, and I can't wait to see what you make. <3

One last logistical note: If you're looking for me, I'm actually over on dreamwidth at [personal profile] kate, but there's not a lot about SGA there anymore (though I do have a dear creator letters tag that might give you even MORE ideas (because there aren't enough of those floating around)). And if you want to see what I like to read and write, I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] kisahawklin at the AO3, and here are my bookmarks.
kate: Sam from S9 promo looking down (SPN: Sam  downtrodden)
Hallo dear creator!

So, you may be able to tell from my sign-up that I am totally the easiest recipient ever. No, really. You're making something for me. I already love it.

Rule number one is that you enjoy what you're making. If you love what you're doing, I'm going to love it too, I guarantee it. If nothing in my sign-up or blathering below interests you, throw it all out the window and make whatever the heck you feel like!

I don't really have a lot to add to my sign-up, honestly, it was pretty long as it is. I seem to be a bit of a unicorn in that I really love all the pairings with the boys. I like Wincest, early seasons or later, I love Destiel, because it's just so easy, I love Sam/Cas because they're such an odd couple and it takes some work to get them together, and I love Wincestiel most of all, because my answer when I can't decide on an OTP is to smush them all together.

I also love gen and character-based stuff, especially minor or secondary characters: Charlie, Jo, Ellen, Ash, Meg, Ruby, Jody, Bobby, Chuck, Garth, Kevin, Kevin's mom, Samandriel, Balthazar, Gabriel, Death, Naomi, Gadreel, and I'm sure others that aren't coming to mind.

Also, I guess I forgot to say it, but, no character bashing please! I totally get it if you like Wincest and hate the angels, or love Destiel but don't much care for Sam. But in that case, please just leave the character out rather than killing them needlessly or putting them through the torture mill.

I'm seeing a lot of prompts in others' sign-ups that make me go: why didn't I ask for that?! So here, a list of things I forgot to mention that I enjoy a lot:

Fluffy/Happy/Light
Snow
Snuggling for warmth
Bed-sharing
Protective Instincts
Winchesters as kids, weecest or just gen
Co-dependency where things aren't completely jacked because of it

Dark
Non-con
Dub-con - especially when there is massive angst because of it (Dean and Sam are faves here - getting together because there's no other way out of a situation is one of my iron-clad kinks for Wincest)
Evil!Sam, Demon!Dean, Badass!Castiel
Sam as a damsel in distress, Dean getting beat up, and Cas being mulishly defiant
Co-dependency where things are completely jacked because of it

One last logistical note: If you're looking for me, I'm actually over on dreamwidth at [personal profile] kate, but there's not a lot about SPN there (though I do have a dear creator letters tag that might give you even MORE ideas (because there aren't enough of those floating around). And if you want to see what I like to read and write, I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] kisahawklin at the AO3, and here are my bookmarks.

My original sign-up for posterity. )
kate: Eliot from Leverage, with his mug of coffee, right before he takes down a room in the dark. :) (Leverage: Eliot disguised as Daniel Jack)
I AM SO EXCITE! I absolutely love throwing things in the mixing bowl and seeing what comes out! I love all of these canons and would like anything at all from two of them mixed together. My Rule #1 of all exchanges is that I want you to enjoy what you're writing, so take anything after this point with a bucketload of salt (because Rule #2 is that I throw out every idea I can think of including utter and complete crack to see if I can spark an idea for you - if I can, great, if not - see Rule #1).

General likes (this varies from day to day, so this is just a list of things of interest right this sec): Found family, team, intense friendships, redemption arcs, teaching, awkwardness, bonding over food, intelligent use of resources, standing up for people (one's self or others), mind control/coercion and all the angst that goes with it, inability to express feelings verbally, snark, and pulling pigtails. For generalities, I like horror to fluff and everything in between. I read everything. Yes, really. Every. Single. Thing. All ratings, all genres, all tropes, all kinks (including none), all characters, all pairings or moresomes (including none), all styles (descriptive to sparse, purple prose to stark minimalism), you name it, I read it.

General dislikes: scat. This list has gotten shorter and shorter the longer I'm in fandom, and this is now the only hold-out. ABO and mpreg aren't top of my list, but I've read and enjoyed both, so have at, if that's where your inspiration takes you!

Specific prompts (these are just to spark your imagination - if nothing works for you, feel free to stick to the "Optional details are optional" decree):

Request 1: Criminal Minds, Leverage, Psych, White Collar

Solving (or committing) crime together! I'd love to see any of these teams crossed over for casefic as I think the characters would spark off each other brilliantly. I'd love to see what Garcia and Hardison get up to together, or watch Neal charm the pants off Prentiss, or have Lassiter take a White Collar seminar from Peter. How about Parker and Reid being awkward at each other or Elizabeth hosting a party that Sophie and Tara crash? Or Eliot, Parker, and Hardison looking for a new team member or two after the finale and looking into Shawn and Gus (or Neal - they are short a con artist, after all)? There are so many possibilities with these guys!

Request 2: Doctor Who, Discworld, Glee, Eureka, PG Wodehouse

This is my crack-tastic set. I would love just completely off-the-wall fic from absolutely ANY of these combinations. I'd love to see Jeeves & Wooster in the TARDIS (Jeeves finding the kitchen on the first try and making tea!), or watch one of the companions join the Monstrous Regiment. Zoe Carter transferring schools, joining the Glee folks and making them sing about physics! DEATH, Death of Rats, Susan Sto Helit, Lord Vetinari, or Moist von Lipwig anywhere for any reason would be super welcome. Glee is basically the reason to have a musical episode in all the other series. BECAUSE MUSICAL EPISODES. Any of the doctors and/or companions (or Jack Harkness, fuck, I love Jack) exploring Eureka or Ankh-Morpork would be great. Henry and/or Jo getting shifted from Eureka to Discworld and finding Unseen University or suddenly ending up in Wodehouse-world would be awesome. These are just all my fun happy places, and I'd love to see any of them smushed together.

Request 3: Star Trek: AOS, Star Trak: DS9, Firefly, Hunger Games

IN SPAAAAACE! Or the future. Or both. I just think finding a way to make any of these two canons work together would be awesome! Reconciling AOS and DS9 would be awesome - how does DS9 come about in the alternate universe, or does it? Where are Jake and Sisko and Bashir and Dax and Kira? Fitting together Firefly and either Star Trek seems like great fun to me, too - they're so different; are they just in different corners of space? What happens when they meet up out in the black? The Hunger Games, I just... I would love to see what the folks from these other canons do when they find out about them, or how they'd deal if they ended up getting stranded there. Dystopias and dark fics call to me here, but I would not be opposed to something on the more tribble end of things, either.

Request 4: House, MD, Hannibal, Elementary, Person of Interest

Another set of case-solvers! I think seeing House and Sherlock interact could be one of the absolute best things EVER. I'd love to see Joan and House either hit it off or become massively antagonistic. I think you could play that either way, depending on the day (or storyline) for House. What if the Machine coughed up Will's number? Or Irene's? Or Wilson's? What would Hannibal do if Sherlock and Joan came to his door to question him about a case, or Reese saved his life while he was out grocery shopping? There is so much potential here for teamwork or working at cross-purposes!

Request 5: Fringe, Orphan Black, Dollhouse, Inception, The X-Files

Dystopias and sci fi, technology and ambiguous morals... I love all of these. Dollhouse and Inception are so so so easy to cross over with everything - and such potential for devastating angst! Putting the mind of someone into the mind of someone else - and then crossing that over with the dreamworld of Inception! Mulder and Scully investigating either one of those things would be awesome - especially if one or both of them got dumped into a dreamworld or a doll or found out they had clones of themselves. What if the clones from Orphan Black were being created specifically to become dolls, so they didn't have to recruit people anymore? What would Olivia and Peter do if they were stuck inside a dream together, or what if alt!Olivia's memories got downloaded when the universe reset so she could go back to the Dollhouse to look at them every once in a while? What if Walter discovered the basis for the dreamsharing in Inception? What if Peter and Olivia found the X-Files secretly stored away somewhere? SO MUCH GOOD STUFF HERE, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Ummmm....

kate: Sam has the most ridiculous hair (SPN: Sam haaaaaaaaaaaair)
Not sure if I'm supposed to be writing a "Dear Creator" letter for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas, but I like talking about my likes and dislikes and my fandom and just about everything, ever, so.

Thank you for making something for me! I am SO excited, I cannot even explain how excited I am to do an exchange in this fandom, and that I'm going to get a gift made just for me. I LOVE EXCHANGES, WHEEEEEEE! :D :D :D

First things first: I don't live on LJ anymore. I'm [personal profile] kate over on Dreamwidth, if you're looking to know a little more about me outside of this exchange. I blather about all kinds of things.

Second things second: My number one, absolutely iron-clad rule about exchanges is: I want this to be fun for you. There should be no agonizing. There should be no twisting yourself in knots over a gift for me (unless you want to do that - then, twist away!). My most important rule is that you enjoy yourself while creating it - I will love anything you make, guaranteed.

Third... yeah, you get it: I am nearly unsquickable. I don't have any triggers. I listed a couple of dislikes, but you know, the longer I'm in fandom, the less things I find I don't like. Right now the list is basically scat and mpreg. Mpreg I am super-willing to be convinced I'm wrong about! Scat less so. I'm just... not interested in that, so please do avoid it. As for other dislikes I listed, they're not hard and fast. I've read a/b/o I liked, I just like other things better in this fandom. I listed humiliation because I'm not a fan of humiliation in general, but if you want to go there, and it makes sense for the character, then go there! Go ahead and convince me. I'm all about being convinced.

Fourth: Things I like, in no particular order (and with no obligation to include any of this stuff, this is just basically to see if I can spark an idea for you):

* Angst
* Found family
* Redemption
* Apocafic of varieties *other* than heaven/hell
* Female characters with agency (Jo, Ellen, Meg, Jody, Ruby, Cassie, Mrs. Tran, Charlie... I'm sure I'm missing some I just can't think of them offhand)
* Asexual characters
* Queer characters
* Kinky characters
* Asexual kink
* Being held down
* Coercion of any sort, to any end, and the accompanying angst
* Co-dependent Winchesters (even - or maybe especially - in gen)
* Badass Castiel
* Sam's hair
* Dean's faaaaaaace
* Castiel's... everything?
* Sam being badass, especially as a kid
* Dean being awkwardly vulnerable, especially as an adult
* Cas being a fish out of water
* Wincestiel of all flavors, but especially old!Wincestiel
* Cas/Dean with D/s dynamics, especially set in early-to-mid S4
* Sam/Cas where Sam isn't a stand-in for Dean
* Sam/Dean... I can't actually pick one thing I want for them. I do like angst more than fluff where they're concerned, though.

Hm, that's less interesting than I've been in other letters, sorry. I think it's being new to Supernatural, I'm still finding my feet. Hopefully this enough to get you started, though. Have fun, and thank you so much for making something for me! :D :D :D

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge
Day 7: In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

It's really tough for me to ask for things. Like, it embarrasses me and it's one of the reasons I never do any of those spiffy writing memes (I'm also terribly certain that no one gives a crap about what I write and is less than interested in doing anything with it - which is why I was so deeply pleased and thrilled with those requests to link works the other day). But I'm doing this challenge, and so, here are things I am embarrassed to admit I would really, really like.

1. I would absolutely love transformative works of my transformative works (including art, podfic, fanmixes, translations, craftworks, remixing, continuing, or changing the story itself, anything) for any of my stories, any of them, seriously. But the one thing I want more than anything in the world, is art for Kinky Boots: the image of John, naked except for thigh high leather boots. That is the only time I've written a story from a single image I saw in my head, and to have that image be out in the world would be amazing.

2. I would like some very specific Criminal Minds recs. This fandom is tough for me, because so far what I've read just doesn't work for me. For one, I love the team as a team, and I don't ship them. I like them as friends and family, and I love all their partners (Lila or Austin for Reid, Sarah for Gideon, Kevin for Garcia, Will for JJ, Haley for Hotch), so I'm not interested in 'ship fic for this fandom (which is probably why I haven't really been in this fandom so much). Now, that said, I don't mind 'ship fic, and I have read lots of it (Garcia/Morgan, Morgan/Reid, Prentiss/Reid, JJ/Reid, Garcia/Morgan/Reid, okay, I really like Reid, so what?!), but my problem with it is not with it being 'ship fic but with the fact that it doesn't feel like the show, or the characters feel OOC to me. On the other hand, I'm not really interested in case fic for this fandom; the show itself scratches that itch just fine. What I am looking for is this: character-based fic that specializes in backstory or fills in bits and pieces of their characterizations that we see in canon. I love CM because it really only hints at their characterization (for the most part). I would have thought that the fandom would have run with those savory little bits of information, but either I'm looking in the wrong places or it just doesn't exist. Help a girl out here? I will read 'ship fic, if it specializes in characterization or backstory, and the characters I love best are Reid, Garcia, Morgan, Prentiss, JJ, Gideon, and Hotch (pretty much in that order). Elle and Rossi, no thanks. They're just not my cup of tea (I don't mind if they're in the mix, they're part of the team, obviously, but I'd rather they not be the focus of the fic). I know those are really specific requirements, so anything you can give me would be awesome.

2a. Okay, I lied. There is ONE 'ship fic I am desperately seeking. I want the fic where Reid and Hotch get it on in the car after interviewing Chester Hardwick in Damaged. Hotch taking off his jacket and being all "OH YEAH? I'M GONNA MESS YOU UP BIG MAN" and then Reid saving the day with a 13-minute ramble? Something about Hotch taking off his tie set me off, and I want the porn, man, with a simple "that was so hot" sort of explanation. I don't even care if its plausible, because to me it's plausible based solely on Hotch ripping his tie off and Reid stepping in to save his ass. <333 Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeid.

3. Icons! :D :D :D I love icons, and I suck at them so bad. :( I would love icons for the following fandoms/characters or interests: Losers/Cougar, Cougar, Cougar, Jensen, Pooch, Aisha, Roque; CM/Reid, Morgan, Garcia, Prentiss; Fringe/Olivia, Astrid, Walter, Broyles; How to Train Your Dragon/Toothless (or Toothless and Hiccup), Astrid, Ruffnut and Tuffnut; Leverage/Eliot, Parker, Hardison; ballet; classical music; Kate Winslet; Vin Diesel; Wylie Dufresne; fooooooooooood.

ETA: OMG SO MANY AWESOME ICONS! Check the comments for Losers, Leverage, Fringe, and Criminal Minds! :D :D :D
