Note: Still not done, but substantially more content that it had before, so progress! Sorry ;-;
Aw man, another year of Yuletide. Sounds weird when it's only been my second time doing it, but anyway XD First off, since my DW/LJ account is severely lacking for stalking purposes, here's my AO3, my Tumblr, and my AniList.
Now I'm gonna shamelessly copy my last year's DNWs and likes/dislikes and only tweaking them a bit
Do Not Wants
Next would be my DNWs. There's a bunch listed on the post I linked above, but you don't have to follow that one. I'll just be listing here the most relevant ones:
- Major Character Death - That's the one archive warning in my DNW. I'm fine with the others as long as it fits the tone of the fandom I've requested. I guess Rape/Non-con is also out this time since all of my requested only kinda fit the bill, but if you're confident in pulling it off then I've got no problem with it.
- Character Bashing - Pretty self-explanatory.
- 1st/2nd person POV - I have a weird aversion for them when it comes to fanfics. 1st person I'm pretty okay with in epistolary-style fics, or if the POV is an OC, but yeah, not really interested in it in general.
- Genderswaps - I'm a gay-as-fuck dude who loves to read about dudes who are also into dudes, so
¯\_(ツ)_/¯I don't mind if an M/M pairing gets swapped to F/F (or vice-versa, but I don't think I've ever actually seen that particular one happen before), but turning it to F/M almost always rubs me the wrong way. Genderswapping F/M to M/M or F/F too, now that I think about it. So yeah, unless there's like reincarnation and multiple lives or something involved, and it ends in M/M or F/F, then genderswaps doesn't really interest me.
- Infidelity, Cheating - Pretty self-explanatory, so please don't.
- Het Incest - I'm perfectly fine reading incest, just not het incest. That also goes for characters who are not related at all but have a sibling- or parent-like relationship in canon.
- A/B/O Dynamics - I don't mind them in PWPs, but I really don't care for it otherwise.
- Eye Gore - Yeah, these freaks me out. If the eyeballs are detached from the person, go ahead, do your worst. But if it's still attached and somebody does anything to it (scooping them out, puncturing them, putting on contacts...) that's an instant nope for me.
- PWPs, Porn with a sidedish of Plot - Basically, I'm fine with the most explicit stuff as long as it doesn't overwhelm the plot and become the plot in and of itself.
Things I Like
Okay, so if I hadn't listed it as a DNW, chances are I'd probably love it. But here's some of stuff I am really into:
- Canon-compliant or Canon-divergent fics - Fics that can make me feel it actually happened in canon, or fics that ask "what if this instead of that happened in canon?" and then run with it are my favorites.
- AUs - With that said, I also love AUs as long as the characters are recognizably them. Any kind of fantasy or sci-fi AU I am down. Mundane/Modern Setting/No Powers AUs also, if the fandom isn't already set there (like Gatchaman or IBO).
- Pining - Mutal pining. Oblivious mutal pining. All the pining.
- Humor - Whether it's crack or black humor in darkfics, go for it!
- Angst with Happy Endings - I love suffering. Especially when inflicted to my faves. But I also want them happy in the end, so yeah.
Okay, now onto my requested fandoms!
