currently: adding/selectively adding/not adding




I'm 5'2" and change: small, fierce, and as unpredictable as my hair. I have an eclectic taste in music, an unhealthy addiction to procedural crime dramas, and a tendency to overanalyze everything. I enjoy over-investing in tragic and doomed TV couples (especially pretty ones), and my relationship with baseball is more a way of life than anything else. Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life before my neuroscience degree collects too much dust in my closet. I like to keep busy.

I'm high on flail and low on drama. I abuse capslock way more than I should, and I have a small (okay, massive) love affair with parentheticals. I'm open to new friends, but in general, I'd prefer that we have either common interests or mutual friends, and/or that I know you from somewhere. Comment first if you want me to add you back =)


PS: If you're looking for fic, you can find it at for_the_coast

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi, new favorite person! I love all of these fandoms, and I’m so excited that you’ve offered one of them! I can’t wait to read whatever you write for me. Here are some of my general likes/dislikes before I get into the specific requests.

Likes: character-driven stories, romance (I generally lean towards canon pairings as specified below), female friendships, slow burn UST, porn (if appropriate), backstory and missing scene fic, best friends who fall in love, banter and bickering, fake relationship tropes, and men who adore the women in their lives. I have a preference for happier/more hopeful endings, and female characters are almost always my favorites. I talk a lot about romance in my requests, but I love reading great gen and friendship fic as well. I really love AUs, and I’ve specified a few fandoms below that I would love to receive an AU for. If you have any questions on this or anything else, ask the mods and I’ll be happy to answer!

Dislikes: misogyny, noncon or dubcon, major character death (you can use anything that’s already canon of course), character bashing, infidelity, excessive embarrassment, unrequited female pining, nice guysTM.

This is my seventh year participating in Yuletide! If you’d like to take a look at some of what I’ve written to get a better idea, my fic master list is located here and almost everything is archived over at for_the_coast or AO3, otherwise it’s in my fic tag on Tumblr. My journal is primarily locked (although if you go through my Yuletide tag, my past letters are all public), but I have Tumblr (x) and a GoodReads account (x), and both of those are public and a pretty good reflection of what I like.

I’m the type of writer who likes more details rather than less when I’m writing a story for someone else, so my requests generally reflect that. You can choose what you would like to take or leave based on what works for you. These are just some of my ideas, but they are certainly not the complete list of stories I would like to read for any of these fandoms. I know whatever you write is going to be great!

Betsy-Tacy Series, Firebird Series, Full House, Pitch, Waitress MusicalCollapse )

Dear Romance Novel Exchange Author,

Hi!! I’m so excited about this exchange, and I can’t wait to read whatever you write for me! I love each of these books and just want more of them!

Here are some general likes/dislikes before I get into the specifics of my requests. I have more detailed letters from past exchanges (Yuletide and Fic Corner), if for some reason you want to know more, but I tried to narrow it down to the likes and dislikes I thought were most relevant to this particular exchange!

Likes: character-driven stories, romance (obviously!), slow burn UST, backstory and missing scenes, best friends who fall in love, any and all fake relationship tropes, banter, female friendships, men who adore the women in their lives, happy or hopeful endings. I do love AUs, although for this exchange I would prefer them only for the fandoms I have specified below.

Dislikes: misogyny, noncon or dubcon, infidelity, surprise child tropes, major character death, excessive embarrassment, unrequited female pining.

If you’d like to take a look at some of what I’ve written in the past, my fic master list is located here and almost everything is archived over at for_the_coast or AO3, otherwise it’s in my fic tag on Tumblr. My journal is primarily locked and not very active (although my letters from past exchanges are all public), but I also have Tumblr (x) and a public GoodReads account (x), and both of those are a pretty good reflection of what I like.

I’m the type of writer who likes more details rather than less when I’m writing a story for someone else, so my requests generally reflect that. You can choose what you would like to take or leave based on what works for you. These are just some of my ideas, but they are by no means an exhaustive list of the stories I would like to read. I know whatever you write is going to be great!

Bridgertons, Dressmakers, FBI US Attorney Series, Off-Campus, Psy-ChangelingCollapse )

Anyway, I hope some of this is helpful! Thank you again, author! I can’t wait to read whatever you write.

Love,
spyglass_

So I think that’s about it! I hope this was helpful for you. Thank you again, and Happy Yuletide!

Dear Fic Corner Author,

Hi!! Thank you so much for writing a story for me. I'm excited to read a story about any of these universes, but before I get to the specific requests, here are some general likes and dislikes.

For past letters, I've done Fic Corner once before (x) and Yuletide for many years (x). Those letters contain a more detailed list of likes and dislikes, all of which are still valid. My requests are generally for extension of canon stories. I like relationship- and character-driven stories, romance and friendships (especially female friendships), and the ladies are almost always my favorites. I like stories with hopeful endings, and while I do really love AUs, unless specified (or obviously in the case of Firebird where canon is built in AUs), I would prefer something that fits into canon.

Now for the specific requests!Collapse )

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Hi, new favorite person!! I'm so excited that you're writing a story for me. I love all of these fandoms, and the fact that you love one of them enough to offer it means that you are inherently awesome and I love you automatically :D Here are some basics on what I like to read before I get on to the specific requests!

Likes: character-driven stories, romance (I generally lean towards canon pairings as specified below), female friendships, slow burn UST, porn (if appropriate), backstory and missing scene fic, best friends who fall in love, banter and bickering. I have a preference for happier/more hopeful endings. Female characters tend to be my favorites. I talk a lot about romance in my requests, but I love reading great gen and friendship fic as well.
