Hello Beyond Panels writer! I apologize for the lateness of this letter, as well as the fact that I didn't include my preferences easily in the sign-up. But I hope to make this easy for you!
I like a lot of things. Basically, I'm open to mostly anything, but if you're so inclined, you can take a look at my own fics and get a sense of my writing style, preferences, ships, and previous Yuletide stuff by checking out my AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/users/andibeth82
. You can also look at my fic tag on Tumblr (isjustprogress.tumblr.com) and my Tumblr in general if you want an idea of what kinds of ships/characters/things I like.
I'm very into characterization - I like details and good dialogue. I love when a fic gets down and dirty into a character's mind and shows me what they're thinking, not just what they're doing. I like a good story. If you're worried that you're being overly detailed or too intense...chances are, you're probably not, so don't fret! This isn't a drabble, so surprise me with your feels for whatever fandom you write about!
Other things: I I really like angst. A lot. I mean, I'm not saying you have to like, kill someone or put someone in danger for me to be happy, but angst and hurt/comfort is like my OT3. Also, I'm pretty open about different kinds of tropes and such, but here be some of my favs: AU, period pieces, STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, characters with dark pasts who are damaged people but love deeply, daddy issues, POV shifts, forgotten/mistaken identities, female friendship/Bechtel test passing, teamwork, mama bear love, sisters, snark/banter (I love snark!), people saving people, established relationships. Also a fan of smut and kink stuff but that's not really neccessary in a story. (If it works, however, I am ALL for it.)
Dislikes, for the record: mpreg, a/b/o, non-conREQUESTS:Hawkeye
Kate Bishop, Barney Barton, Clint Barton, Lucky
I'm extremely enamored with Kate/Clint, they're my most favorite thing. And that's pretty much true no matter the setting. I also ship both ways with them, in that I love them as BFFs/partners but also, I like them as a couple. So basically, it would be easy for me to love anything you write for them, whether it's a fun AU or a slice of life type thing. Clint and Barney...oh man. After reading Hawkeye 21, I AM GUTTED. I'm devesated. I love Clint's relationship with Barney SO much and I would love any kind of fic exploring their relationship. Oh, and I'm totally open to any cameos -- Jess, Bobbi, Natasha -- I'm a big fan of the ladies in Clint's life and their friendships (possibly) with Kate and/or Barney and Clint.Young Avengers
Kate Bishop, America Chavez, Cassie Lang
GIRL POWER. ALL THE GIRL POWER. America/Kate either as BFFs or lovers, again, I'm open to either and love both pairings. I especially like UST where it relates to America/Kate. But also, I love Cassie and Cassie's relationship to Kate. MAKE ME HAPPY ABOUT LADIES TEAMING UP AND BEING AWESOME OR EVEN JUST HAVING DINER FOOD AFTER SAVING THE WORLD BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH. (And adding in some of the boys are fine, I just want the main focus to be one or all of these lovelies!)Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff, Bucky Barnes, Liho, Yelena Belova
Natasha Romanoff is my light and love and I adore her with every fiber of my being. Simply put: her life means a lot to me, and any explortation of her past or character exploration would make me happy. I'm fascinated by her relationship/history with Yelena, and wouldn't mind seeing stuff about those two, especially as it relates to their Red Room days. And I love Bucky/Nat as he existed in her past. ALSO I LOVE LIHO. I love Natasha and Liho. I would love a fic of just Natasha and Liho learning to appreciate each other.Secret Avengers
Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Jessica Drew
Can you say OT3? Okay, I don't really want a threesome, but these three TOGETHER in some way kicking ass and taking names or even just hanging out randomly for no reason would make me happy. I love Natasha and Jessica's BFF friendship, Clint and Jess' relationship history, Clint and Natasha's love for each other -- I just want all the fic of the three of them co-existing.
THANK YOU KIND FIC WRITER!
