cherith: (Speak my Mind)
Okay, so of course, it's maybe not always as fun as you wish it was, but you WILL earn my eternal gratitude for writing one of these fandoms near and dear to my heart. I'm all about the whim of the writer, consider my likes and dislikes as you would the pirate code (merely guidelines) and if the story takes you somewhere else, go with it. I will love it all the same. 
Love: Dark comedy, witty banter, vivid imagery, literary & historical references, melancholy tone, religious: identities or references and subtle mockery thereof, character introspection & retrospection, reading and research, irony, gentle mockery, moral and sexual ambiguity, social commentary, emotionally intense relationships without an acknowledged sexual relationship, serious and/or goofy story twists (with or without red herrings), writing, characters with crazy hobbies, nostalgia, music, changes in power dynamics, unreliable narrators, f/f relationships that may or may not be explicitly sexual (but especially those that are), light and dark image dichotomies, faulty and questioning faith, perseverance, subversive religious ideals and relationships 

And now the Fandoms
Critical Role (Web Series): : Words cannot describe how much I'm in love with this show. Honestly, I wouldn't care what you write me as long as it's got the voice of the characters and is even a little bit fun. Since I have to put characters though, Vex, Vax & Percy are definitely the kind of thing I live for. I love the twins especially: their friendship, their bond, their past. I particularly love their friendships with the rest of the group and how meaningful they are, each, individually as well as part of the group. 

Dracula (TV):
 : I hate that this show got so little time, but the love between Lucy & Mina was my absolute favorite thing about it. Give me Lucy before or after she vamps, before or after she declares herself to Mina. And give me Mina who loves her friend more than she loves Jonathan, or Grayson, or herself. And while I adore Lucy/Mina on their own, feel free to give me Grayson/Lucy/Mina. Maybe they live with Grayson, he takes Lucy under his wing and with Grayson, perhaps Mina sheds some of her hesitation about being with Lucy. ALSO, I'm also head-over-heels with Victoria Smurfit as Lady Jayne. So a Lucy/Mina/Lady Jayne threesome would just I don't even have words. It'd be great.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Book):: I'm a sucker for stories with the kind of willful denial of a breakdown that both Merricat and Constance live under. The sister's relationship is interesting on multiple levels, especially Constance's protection of what Merricat's done, her complicit involvement in keeping it a secret from her sister, and her seclusion from the rest of the town - seemingly okay with their assumptions of what actually took place. Most especially the freedom she continues to allow Merricat, especially given the fanciful but obsessive nature of her activities, is intriguing. I'd love anything with these two, but specifically something that lets us into Constance's head for a little while.

Transistor (Video Game):: This game has so many cool pieces, but the way the story ends is so gut-wrenching. I'd love something happier between the two of them, either before or after The Process begins. I'm going to be really easy to please here, I just need something sweet, fluffy or sexy to help give me another story for these two. That said, if you want to stretch your writing and go for something angsty - perhaps something that covers the distance from time prior to the game to the end of the game, I won't be mad about that either. See? Easy to please.

Crimson Peak (Movies):: I love Edith and Lucille, both as women with strong wills and women that love Thomas and want to be good to him/for him. I've requested all three characters and ideally, I'd love a threesome between Lucille/Thomas/Edith, definitely a better ending for them than the way it actually ended. Lucille as the dominant personality in a potential threesome is definitely what I'm here for, but I could also enjoy Edith or Thomas trying to offer it as a kind of peace treaty. As a note, Lucille/Thomas on their own is a-okay by me. After all, how might it have gone if Edith hadn't tried to nope out of the whole situation? But really, I'm up for anything involving the three of them as long as it's high on drama and atmosphere. This movie was visually stunning and everything my little goth girl heart could ever want. So, bonus points for keeping the themes and visuals as a major part of your story.

Being Erica (TV):: I want Kai & Erica.  I want angst and fluff, I want to know what happens if Erica chooses Kai for good, if she doesn't become a therapist, or if she does and uses her abilities to see Kai.  Just, give me all of the Erica & Kai and make it work.
:: Other useful things to know :: For the fandoms where it seems applicable: dark is good.  Crazy is good.  Sex is great, fantastic even - especially during dark/troubled/angsty times.  Seriously.  Go wild, go deep, go dark... and most of all, have fun. Go as grim/dark or smutty as you want to author. I'm here for it.
