We should do a DL Christmas exchange with Yuletide letters specifying what kind of threads we want made for us (instead of fics) - someone makes you a thread about something you're interested in (a 'fandom') and with the kind of topic/theme you like ('preferences') and you make one for them in return. It's sweet.
Here's mine as an example....
Thread preferences: I prefer gen friendship, ideally slash & femslash. No het please. I also prefer if a thread has some juicy intricate plotting and/or characterisation/character study as well as just gratuitous porn...
Preferred tropes/devices/narratives: Epistolary style, slice-of-life, post-canon/future focus, unreliable narrators, second or third-person POV, slow-build/burn, master-planning & thwarted schemes, snarky dialogue, worldbuilding (canon-compliance/shootfabe if not AU), magical realist or supernatural elements, existential questions, falling in love (especially pining or reluctant), a few certain specific dark themes (pretty much exclusively spooky demonic stuff, gore & in-cest), anything that passes the Bechdel test, bittersweet or ambiguous endings, anything with dogs in it, making fun of Ts and Anteefas, Dark Lesbians.
Dislikes & squicks: domesticity (I find it boring), crack (I find it silly), first-person POV or narrative shift (confusing), songfic (blah), monologues, Mary Sue/Marty Stu charas (no Timotee or anyone like him), 'fix-Its', alternate timelines (I gave up Marvel comics for a reason), genre AU unless otherwise specified, abuse or kink themes unless otherwise specified (especially but not limited to scat, torture, bestiality, rape statutory or otherwise, abuse of animals or children), happy endings (either kind), gratuitous porn (ikr, what am I even still doing here), anything with even a hint of re ichw inging or homophobia or misogyny (so, Ts n' Anteefas).
Fandoms: classical musicians, 20th/21st C. European theatre (inc. musicals and pro-wrestling), modernist poetry, 80s-00s pop/indie music, teen or underground/cult movies of the 70s-80s, podcast radio, cult cartoons (think Peanuts, Adult Swim fare or vintage Hanna-Barbera/Looney Tunes), paganry.
Thanks in advance, and happy Yule!
