10/13/14 04:05 am - Return of the #ITPE Letter
How are we already in year FOUR of this exchange?! Jesus, it seems like yesterday cantarina and I were stepping up to the call of "a winter podfic exchage to replace Podbang!"
Also, large chunks of this thing are hugely copy-pasta'd from previous years, because I'm a lazy fucker. Not sorry.
I am, as always, the mod, so I already know who you are, etc. BUT I don't know what you're making me, so here's some guidelines to choose something fun to surprise me anyway ;D
I've still got a...um...SORT OF up-to-date complete list of fandoms & ships here: LJ / DW. BUT, for purposes of THIS exchange THIS year...
Hockey RPF: The ships I'm requesting this time around are Zucker/Kuemper and Parise/Suter (both of the Wild). (Sadly, nothing currently posted exists for Marco Scandella/Nick Bjugstad, or I would request the fuck out of that. God, I'm turning into a horrible hipster, bestliar is the WORST influence, fuck.) Because you're probably not familiar with the former, here is the two-line primer: Adorable giant baby goalie. Tiny douchey Jewish American winger. Height difference. And hugs. They were the two members of the bb Wild who bounced between the AHL & NHL last year, so there's narrative there. There are six fics for them (although really it's five because mardia is a terrible person who likes to make me cry). HEY IF YOU PODFIC THE WILD, THEY HAVE AUDIO FILES OF ALL OF THE PLAYERS PRONOUNCING THEIR NAMES!!! (Except Kuemper, and Harding, for some reason, but you can hear how Darcy's name is said + how he talks here.)
(OF NOTE: other Wild ships I enjoy include Nino/Granlund and Coyle/Brodin. Zucker/Kuemper/Coyle = ok, Zucker/Coyle straight-up = NOT OK, ZUCK+CHUCK PLATONIC BFFs 4 LYFE!!!! I also like Coyle/Jonathan Huberdeau and Brodin/Sasha Barkov, but those fall in the same category as Scandella/Bjugstad, sadly.)
Baseball RPF: Minnesota Twins, Mauer/Morneau—this is my sad tragic sports RPF forever OTP which like literally no one online cares about but me and like 4 local fangirls who indulgently let me scream at them about this, BUT this article is literally a primer of everything you need to know about them, and there is pretty much one single quality fic for them of any substance and it's this.
DCU: Tim/Kon. Ohhhhh, Tim/Kon. I HAVE RECENTLY HAD A RENAISSANCE OF FEELINGS ABOUT THEM AND SUDDENLY I NEED ALL OF THE TIM/KON PODFIC LIKE BURNING AND THERE IS ALMOST NONE :(((((((( Seriously, give me (pre-New 52 reboot, preferably not oppressively angsty) Tim/Kon podfic and I will love you forever.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Interested in Peralta/Santiago here. I am such a sucker for slap-slap-kiss uptight lady/douchey guy couples, MOAR PODFIC FOR THEM PLZ, there is so much good fic!!! (I mean, needs moar hot banging and PORNY FIC in general, because seriously, but I'm pretty into a lot of the stuff that's out there already.)
Life With Derek: Yeah, that thing, I said above, about that couple type I'm a sucker for? Add some stepcest—a bulletproof kink for me—and, well. I WILL SHIP DEREK/CASEY TO THE END OF TIME, PUT IT ON MY FUCKIN TOMBSTONE. I am the only person who has made podfic in this fandom, and I've only made 3, and 2 of those were specifically written for me to podfic, so there's a HUGE amount of untapped potential in Good Fics That You Can Podfic here. (Don't forget unoriginal-elizabeth over at the Pit of Voles, who actually has some of the best LWD fic out there, and hasn't xposted most of it to AO3.)
A thing you should know: I AM RIDICULOUSLY OTP-ISH. I am not very likely to like something if it's not about one of my OTPs, because I suck like that. I'm really easy about rating--G to REALLY REALLLLLY PORNY is fine (although I usually prefer *some* plot :P), as long as it's *shippy*. Please note that this means that gen is not usually something I read, and even more rarely something I love. I'm not generally interested in OT3s or moresomes unless they're specifically indicated as A Thing I Ship.
Beyond all that, some things I like in general ("Green Light"):
Some things that are iffy for me/potential squicks ("Yellow Light"):
Absolute, hard-and-fast triggers ("Red Light"):
I know I've talked a lot about what I don't like but really, if it's a fun, happy story that YOU enjoy with one of the pairings listed above, I am almost surely going to be happy :D Lastly, if you have any questions, bestliar/bestliars can tell you pretty accurately whether I'll like something of the hockey variety. mardia/mardia/themardia should be able to tell you pretty definitively for Life With Derek, as well as religion trigger stuff. breakeveryclock just generally knows my taste. YAY AND THANK YOU \o/
