Fandoms & Pairings Post

Last Update: Nov. 17, 2009

Currently active fandoms: Criminal Minds, Eureka, Star Trek (2009 + tos), The Dead Zone, CSI, Firefly/Serenity, Final Fantasy VII

Consistent favorites:
* CSI, Gil/Greg. Another pairing I'd blackmail to see more of.

* Dead Zone is a depressingly small fandom. I love seeing new fic (preferably Gen & anything other than Walt/Johnny). I'll bribe, kidnap, blackmail, and threaten for Bruce/Johnny. They are my ultimate OTP.
* Final Fantasy VII, mostly gen & slash (fav characters: Zack, Cloud, Sephiroth, Aeris, Yuffie)
* Firefly, Mal/Simon
* The West Wing, Josh/Sam.

History: I started out as a 'shipper for things like Sailor Moon, Ronin Warriors (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers), and Ranma 1/2, but by the time Gundam Wing started airing, I came across the yaoi/slash fandom and really have never gone back.

General: As you can probably tell I really only write and read from my "live action" fandoms these days. Overall I much prefer the live action fandoms. I write slash of the male/male type and also gen/non-pairing for the most part but I have my fav het and femslash couples, too, and have ideas to write for the ladies. I tend to always have at least a hint of angst or hurt/comfort in my stories but I've gotten over my melodrama of my early fics (thank goodness). I love humor fics but I'm not very good at writing them--the best I can usually pull off is "warm & fuzzy feeling fic." (LOL)

Quick notes: Fandoms include what I read, write, and/or do for graphics/art. “?” areas are ones I’ve never written in and have little or no experience reading… But I’m interested.

Likes
The amnesia trope -- I'm addicted to amnesia stories. Don't ask me why... I just love them like crazy. Well-written, of course...
In-character AU -- I need the characters to be recognizable, but I do enjoy well-written AUs, particularly ones that integrate canon in intriguing ways
"Missing scenes" -- I really do like these =) After all, everything always seems to have something missing that could have gone all sorts of ways so I like to see people's various ideas...
First Time -- "get together" fics, I mean. I love to see the characters getting hooked up... usually because it means some angsting, I admit. ;;^^ FTs are truly my favorite fics.
Humor -- This category is hard to pull off, I find, so I admire the people who can do it well. =) Plus I always need a good laugh after my usual drama / angsting / h/c fics I read.

Dislikes
PWPs -- I can read the occasional one and I can write a scene of plotless sex, but I don't care for these. Fanfiction is meant to be a story, IMO, so I want a plot!
OOCness -- Out of character"ness" is a no-go for me. I don't like abusive!Gil or teary!Daniel and I consider it a bastardization of a character. I also don't like people trying to make villains "good." I mean, sure, go ahead and pimp your fav villian characters, but don't you like them because they're evil? (You can "justify" his actions in what he may think are okay, but still that's not gonna make it really okay in the real world!)
*"Woo-man" and "Butch" rolesin Slash pairings -- I absolutely detest this total degradation of characters, what it implies about women, and its stereotypical nature. Do I even need to explain this?
