First of all, thank you so much for writing a story just for me! It's pretty awesome, given the nature of this fest.
My generalities really didn't change between last year and this year (except my newfound love of femslash. That's new).
What I Like
kid!fic (as in, the characters have kids, not the character are kids - toddler age is perfect), crushes/beginning of relationship (the concept of the feelings coming to fruition and both parties going, "WTF is going on? Why am I acting this way around him/her?" is one of my favorite fandom tropes), smut is always good, flirting, I'm on an AU kick this year, but you don't have to write one if you don't want to. I'm good with canon fics too.
What I Don't Like
Incest, bestiality and molestation are my only three sexual squicks, fandom has desensitized me to everything else. Character bashing. Yes, I'm generally a slasher but that doesn't mean I hate the female (or in the case of a femslash ship, male) characters (or, if I do, it's for reasons unrelated to "I ship his/her love interest with his/her best (fe)male friend and s/he gets in the way of the gay sex"). On that note, I also hate when writers completely disregard canon pairings. As much as I don't want them to, they exist. If you're gonna break them up, let us know how it happened. Please.
And now onto my specifics!
Requested Fandom #1: The Listener, Toby/Oz
I would love to see something where Toby uses his mind reading powers in order to figure out Oz has the hots for him.
This may just be me (misinterpreting canon or otherwise), but I'm sure Toby has wanted to use his mind reading powers for personal gain. (IDK... I would if I were him), so if you're okay with writing the slash, I would love this. But I understand some people aren't into that, so if not... writing something expanding on their friendship (canon seemed to kinda ignore it) would be wonderful too!
Requested Fandom #2: Ben 10 Universe, Ben/Kevin
Timeskip? Ben's 21st birthday? Kevin tries to take advantage of Ben and can't?
I think drunk!Ben would be totally awesome (and allows for them to be aged to adults). I chose 21 because I assume the show takes place in the United States (if you find information that says otherwise, go ahead and change the ages.) I can see Kevin totally trying to use the situation to his advantage, and failing because the "good guy" in him takes over. Hangover nursing optional but would be loved!
Requested Fandom #3: RPF - The Pussycat Dolls, Nicole/Ashley
Backstage quickie? Hotel room? Tour bus? Any one of those would work. If smut's not your thing, then anything more than friendship/pre-slash is good!
This is a new fandom/ship for me, so I have so many plot bunnies. But I'm a weird one in that I actually don't like oral in my femslash smut if that's the only way they're getting each other off. It's totally cliche, imo. But as I said, I'm not all about the smut with these two. I'm also in love with the characters doing coupley things (going on dates, cuddling at home, etc.), especially in my RPF.
Requested Fandom #4: Kaleido Star, Sora/Ken
OMG het?! Heh. I've loved these two for a long time, maybe something set after the series where Sora comes back for Ken?
A rare het request from me! And I'll be completely honest... I've never seen the second season. (Though I am aware that season 2 totally sinks this ship... perhaps that's why I'm avoiding it? ;D). Anyway, it was pretty much canon that Ken liked Sora, and it wouldn't be much of a stretch for Sora to realize, once older, that she liked him too.
(Hey readers guess what! THIS IS THE LAST DEAR SANTA LETTER THIS YEAR!)
