Feel free to check out my own AO3 page (andibeth82) or my Tumblr (isjustprogress) to get a feel for what I like and what ships/characters/things I like, if you so desire. 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!
Here are a few of my favorite things/tropes: AUs of any kind, mission fics, slice of life scenarios, banter, dystopia, snark, developing relationships, hurt/comfort, POV shifts, forgotten mistaken identities, daddy issues, characters with dark pasts who are damaged but love deeply and have trust issues, people saving people, found family, team dynamics, sibling relationships, Bechdel test passing, people saving people, angst (I'm very big into angst -- if you're worried something is too terrible/sad for me, chances are it's not). Did I mention I really, really love angst. A lot. I'm not saying you have to like, kill someone to make me happy, but angst and hurt/comfort is like my OT3. I do like fluff and established relationship things, but only if they fit the story/characters. I'm good with femslash and poly relationship stuff as well.
In terms of more sophisticated stuff, I like BDSM, kink and porn, though I prefer my porn but WITH plot.
Dislikes: mpreg, a/b/o, non-con, M/M, PWP
Clint Barton/Laura Barton/Natasha Romanov
So, I fell for this ship. HARD. It’s basically the first time an OT3 has made a serious impact on me, so much so that I’m on the verge of writing 100K of my own fic for them. I don’t know what it is exactly that makes me love them so much, but something about the history that’s shared between them – the way Natasha probably came into their lives and the way she became SO ENGRAINED IN IT – is something that makes me have a lot of feelings. I love thinking of the three of them opening up to each other, sharing moments with their own lives and in the lives of Clint and Laura’s children, but also, the more serious, angsty things: trust issues and how they all deal with the Avengers situation and SHIELD, and Natasha’s past, and secrets, and ALL OF THAT. I will take these three in ANYTHING. Something relating to canon, AU stuff, domestic stuff, ANYTHING. You could write me whatever about these three and I’ll be happy.
Clint Barton/Kate Bishop/Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton/Barney Barton/Kate Bishop
Admittedly, Barney/Kate/Clint is my terrible crack ship, the one that’s probably All Sorts of Wrong to like, but I like it anyway. I’m fascinated with the dynamics between all three of them, especially Kate’s relationship with Clint, how she’d react to Barney, and Barney’s relationship to his brother. The Hawkeye comics are so good at fleshing out the dynamic between Clint and Barney that I’d love to see that taken one step further. As for Clint/Kate/Natasha, I mean, COME ON. Clint and the two people in his life who he trusts the most but who have also seen him at his worst? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? (No, seriously. History of their relationship? Getting to know each other? Stranded on a mission? PLEASE GO WILD. Nat/Kate snark and sharing secrets about Clint would make my life.)
Clint Barton/Kate Bishop/Bobbi Morse, America Chavez/Kate Bishop/Cassie Lang, Maria Hill/Melinda May/Natasha Romanoff
America/Kate/Cassie: BFFS. THREESOMES. OH MY GOD ALL THE AWESOME LADIES BEING POLY. Or, whatever you choose to do with that. Doesn’t even necessarily have to be romantic, just, mutual love and trust and affection. Or some issues along with that, considering their history, if you so choose.
Clint/Kate/Bobbi: Again with the whole, ladies and Clint Barton thing…how do they respond to being the women in Clint’s lives? How do they come together or work together? Mission fic, domestic stuff, anything would work.
Maria/Melinda/Natasha: This is an OT3 I haven’t seen much for but I am SO ON BOARD WITH IT BECAUSE. BECAUSE. Ladies! Kicking Ass! Being BAMFY! And Maria and Natasha I’ve always headcanoned as having a strong and close relationship anyway…plus May has made it clear in canon she was around in the Academy and SHIELD and I’d love to see a friendship/trust/relationship develop between Natasha and May.
