Alright, here we go once again:

General things about my preferences (unfortunately copied from, well, all my other Dear Writer letters this year, but it stays the same across the board):

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.

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 characters (or, if I do, it's for reasons unrelated to "I ship her love interest with her best male friends and she 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. I also don't like character death (unless it's a person that has died IRL).

Popslash specific likes:
Europe era! (Goes along with my crush/start of relationship trope I like). Tour based fics (cramming two guys into one bus? LOVE!).

Backstreet Boys, Brian/Nick
OMG, again with the TIU tour based fic, and the "Bye Bye Love" moment (HI! I SAW IT FINALLY AND IT WAS AWESOME). But honestly, 1000+ words of them being awesome, and coupley, and whatever and I'll be golden.

Crossover, Nick/Lance
I picked these two on a whim two or three years ago, but this year I have really fallen for them, and picked them again because of that (or I might have started a Nick/Lance RP line because of picking them, and fell in love that way. Something like that). They might be my crossover OTP now, to the point that again... if you go this route I could honestly care less what you write me.
fangirlism: (Hidey boys)
First off, Make The Yuletide Gay author reveals were today!

I wrote Difficulty Level: Moderate (popslash, PG, slash [Brian/AJ], 1226 words) for [livejournal.com profile] daisiesdaily. This one was actually the easiest of the fics I had to write this year, obviously.

I just had to find a way to do it without smut, which proved to not to be a problem at all when I got 500 words in and hadn't even introduced AJ yet! (Heh. Oops.)

Also, 3 Ships fics went live! I got Reaper fic! People should go read "En Suite" (Reaper, PG-13 bordering on R, slash [Sam/Sock/Ben], 1007 words).

I've been soooooo busy lately, but I wanted to get into a tradition of doing fanfic recs, at least for Yuletide and MtYG. So, first, MtYG. Five tiny recs.

Christmas Wishes Come True (Chris/AJ, Brian/Nick): This was my gift fic. While I don't know the *NSYNCers as well as I should (maybe that'll be one of my 2010 goals?), I do know this had an IC AJ. Also, bonus mpreg!

Recessive Genes (Howie/Nick, Howie/JC): Without giving too much away, OMG HOWIE!!! And Nick coaxing Howie into dating JC. And the Howie/Leigh marriage stays in tact!

Will You Be (Brian/Nick): I love the Nick in this, all naive and innocent. Poor kid just wants his superhero.

Gangsters, farmers, friends and lovers (Brian/Nick, Chris/JC): Lovingly dubbed "the Facebook fic" by me, I couldn't help but giggle at how true this all is. And the Brian and Nick in this, oh how I loved them.

Public Relations (AJ/Nick): The Powerpoint presentation slayed me! AJ batting his eyelashes at Nick! Their faces when Brian and Howie force them to keep up the charade! Backstreet at their finest.
fangirlism: (OTP! :D And such)
There will only be a part the second. I was gonna wait, and have these all done at once after the 3 Ships archive opened, but I realized that would mean it would be done after the artist/author reveals at Yuletart, Yuletide, and MtYG, and I wanted to do this during the anonymous period.

So, since the 3 ships archive opening coincides with the MtYG author reveals, I'll amend the squee post for that to my author/artist musings post for the other challenges.

And, without further ado...

I'll post about them in the order I received them.

First, Yuletart. I received "Best of Friends" (The Listener, G, gen, digital drawing). This was posted on a day I really needed something to cheer me up, and boy did this ever cheer me up! I really didn't get a chance to post a coherent comment because I was too busy squee-ing. First off, if you have ever seen the show (I don't believe I have any Listener fen added... yet), how spot on are Craig (Toby) and Ennis (Oz)?! I mean, they're in the artist's style, but it was very clear, to me, it was Craig and Ennis. Second off, this is totally in character for Toby and Oz, to be buddy-buddy like this! Third off, the artist? Really, really talented!

Second, MtYG. I received "Christmas Wishes Come True" (popslash, PG to PG-13, slash [Chris/AJ and hinted Brian/Nick], 1263 words). Okay. Wow. This one was a shock to me, mostly because it's the first year my writer hasn't gone the Brian/Nick route (they tried though, with a couple of lines that did make me smile). But the fic totally makes up for that by being mpreg (why yes, I am one of those who is totally not squicked by that, and in fact loves it to death)! It's a kink actually done in popslash quite a bit, but never before in a story just for me! :D

Last (for now), Yuletide. I received "Aqueous Transmission" (The Listener, PG, slash [Toby/Oz], 2285 words). I was so excited when I guessed that I was getting Listener fic this year for Yuletide, because I wanted a fic for that fandom more than any other! And not only did I get Listener fic, I got my Toby/Oz mind reading fic! It was exactly perfect, with Toby (ab)using his powers to tap into Oz's head and realize there were romantic feelings there, and it didn't get too graphic, their little cuddling scene was more than enough for me! :D

Okay, so it's probably way too late for this, and you've already started writing. But if you have not, here we go:

General things about my preferences (unfortunately copied from, well, all my other Dear Writer letters this year, but it stays the same across the board):

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?

Popslash specific likes:

Backstreet Boys, Brian/Nick

Okay, so, let's see... there has been a lot of new "canon" for BSB this year, so you have a lot to work with if you wanted to go that route. A little birdie told me that these two have a "moment" on their This Is Us tour (choreographed into a song, even!), so if you don't mind being spoiled (or have already seen the show) and want to work it in that'd be awesome. (I myself haven't seen it due to not wanting spoilerage.)

Crossover, Chris/AJ

A simpler request: So AJ mentioned in an interview that the "big BSB/*NSYNC" feud was based around the fact AJ dated Amanda Latona after Chris did, so something where they have to interact due to that (but it turns to something more) would be totally cool!

In general, don't stress. I'm easy to please.

(This is letter 3 of 4... that means ONE MORE! \o/!)
