Hello friend! Thanks for signing up this year, and thanks in advance for writing/arting for me!

As with last year... I'm still down for most stuff, but this letter keeps getting longer?? SORRY

Things I love: FEELINGS, sex-positivity, EMOTIONS, porn of varying sorts, MISCOMMUNICATION THAT ENDS IN PROPER COMMUNICATION, people being awkward, FAMILIES OF CHOICE, feelings, PEOPLE EXPLORING THEIR SEXUALITY IN AWESOME WAYS, and of course feelings. I adore all sorts of stuff about body positivity, but super have a soft spot for stuff with themes about disability or gender identity. :) I'm good with AU or canon-based, sad or happy, silly or serious, porny or not... I hope this gives you a small idea of what I like. :D

Things I definitely do not like: please, no walking!Charles AUs. As it was in 2015 and forever shall be: there's already loads of walking!AUs out there. :D Which is cool! If that's your jam, that's your jam! But I'd prefer, all things being equal, for my gift to have Charles using a wheelchair if he's involved in the fic/art. And also, please no Avengers (they just aren't my thing).

Otherwise, really, I'm cool with most stuff. Honestly, sky's the limit on kinks, tropes, etc--I mean, kinkier the better, let's be fair. I dig d/s themes, A/B/O, body changes, unexpected anatomy, ridiculous and improbable amounts of fluid being produced for no good reason... Like, SERIOUSLY, knock yourself out. If you've been like holding out on writing some zany Erik/Magda/Charles sex-swap xenokink AU because you think no one wants that, my friend, I SO WANT THAT.

DO NOT BE SHY when it comes to writing tropes or kinks, is what I'm trying to say.

BUUUUUT I do adore fluff and gen and angst too, so don't feel like I'm hanging out waiting for porn??? If you're someone who doesn't dig writing sexy times, please, do not feel as if you have to (and I swear, I would be just as over-the-moon to get a gen gift as I would that E/M/C xenokink).

All that being said, please no incest (tho I'm keeping this from last year: HOLY CRAP unless you're writing a FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC AU then BY ALL MEANS, YES, GO ON, I LOVE YOU you glorious V.C. Andrews of fandom) and please no sexual content between adults and minors.

Last night [ profile] deadtrain and I got out to see Kick-Ass. Without all that teen romance and bad mafia omg! stuff it might have been pretty awesome; certainly it would have been a lot better without the homo- and transphobic comments (which to be honest, such comments are so endemic with pop culture that it seemed to be artistically honest to have them in there on a certain level, but really filmmakers thanks for being part of the problem!). Actually what would have been great would have been two hours of Big Daddy and Hit Girl, continuously pressing my "Single Slovenly Dad with Tragic Past and Also Zany Daughter" button as hard as Persona-or-GS-4. I also like foulmouthed bloodthirsty children in film. Judge if you like! If you really like that sort of thing, maybe sneak in for the parts where that occurs?

Also the lead starts to look a bit like Tarrant (well with 30% less teeth) after he's been punched in the face a few times. I mean they're a bit similar when bloodied up, not that punching that kid makes him look like a non-bloody Tarrant. Mainly, however, you will just be seeing that same story about Some White Geek Boy Is Actually NOT GAY And Look He Is Now Dating The Prettiest Girl Dude Dating In High School = NOT GAY, which is kind of ehhhh. It'd be nice if a movie dealt more with actual themes of what it means to be perceived as queer and maybe about how hetero/cis folks can also be very much screwed by systemic homo/transphobia. It would also be very nice to have a movie about Big Daddy getting married to his old partner and having them argue about how to raise a child less irresponsibly, with lots of knife fight scenes, but that's not going to happen either.

Afterward we got beers and proceeded to figure out last week's movie fiesta (we'd gone to see The Cremaster Cycle--yes the whole thing, all 8+ hours--last Sunday) and I got very drunk and played with some cats and passed out, and the next morning was bummed because I thought that this one certain post was gone from a comm. Not that I actually have anything to add to it, unfortunately, as at the point I'd make commentary, it's driven the car way off the Cliff of Staying On-Topic. But as I seem to have thoughts in my head and it's something I feel like writing about I will do so in my most special lifejournal.

Like everything else, it's all a problem of definition. Slash, sexuality, queerness, and the folks who love to attempt describing them. )

In conclusion: angst is fun and all, but I don't think a H/W with an asexual Holmes needs to go there, and honestly reading something where there's some cuddles and Holmes being like ARE YOU DONE IN THE BATHROOM YET FFS would be awesome?

Dream journal nonsense )

Gah, totally unrelated, but I'm beginning to wonder how many more times I can read the word "concrit" without my eyes bleeding. I don't know if it's just because I had a year-long absence from fandom (during which, apparently, the term became common parlance) or if it's as the term seems such an unnecessary abbreviation. I mean, dude. You just wrote a story--how many more letters are there in "constructive criticism?"

I guess I probably shouldn't be so harsh... but it seems like such an awkward 'word.'
