Chances are we share a liking for something AWESOME. Feel free to snoop around - I don't tend to lock anything fannish.

Hark! A Vagrant: I said something about giving one or multiple characters a MYSTERY to solve - because there are quite a few characters who (supposedly) Solve Things, or Fight Crime - the Mystery Solving Teens, Fat Pony, Nancy Drew, Holmes & the multiple Watsons - and Polly the highly intelligent Chimneysweep would obviously be good at that stuff too, but you could just as easily write the epic life story of one character if it moves you to do so, please don't feel limited to the characters I put in the signup, there are just so many I did not know who to pick.

Misfits: NNNGH Misfits. The five orange-jumpsuit-clad ASBO-ers are all special to me. The show is full of sex and violence and sick/funny, and I'd love it if you managed to match its weird tone. I also love the hatred/friendship thing they all have going on, would love a story basically about that. The OT5 if you will. I don't have any ships - except perhaps Kelly/Nathan/Simon in a very loose sort of way, and I do love on Curtis & Alisha's creative ways of having sex - but really, gen, het, slash, I could  go for anything in this fandom! but would prefer it not to focus too tightly on any one character, and for it not to get OOC, no declarations of everlasting devotion for example. And many things that are usually squicky for me simply aren't for Misfits, because they're pretty much a given in the show anyway.

ETA because there keep being new episodes, and I keep on changing my mind: yuletide writer, if you could see your way to working in some Nathan/Simon slashiness, that would also be AMAZING. Also: have realised that the fact that all of the MIsfits have real, genuine problems is a big part of their appeal for me - and the fact that their powers if anything make things harder for them. I do have a Misfits tag, haven't used it much, but there might be a useful something if you click it idk.

All The President's Men RPF: am ridiculously glad this was on the list! Full confession: I wrote, a couple of years ago, what seemed to be the only Woodward/Bernstein slash fic on the internet (based really on the film; the book's not exactly very subtexty), which is here, weeping alone into its heart-shaped pillow. So, um, you can see where my tastes lie, I would really love to see a slashy take, and don't feel you need to look at the thing what I wrote for this. Gen also fine, I totally get it if you don't want to go there! (I will quite frankly faint if this gets matched up.)

ETA because have found new and exciting sources! - a 1974 Time article, Woodstein Meets Deep Throat, which talks about their investigation ahead of the release of their book. Also, if you want to get realistic, and maybe kind of sad, there's this article, from later in 1974, about their discomfort with the fame that resulted, their arguments, their dissatisfaction with the ultimate results of their investigation.

Feminist Hulk: I just want to know more about Feminist Hulk, what Feminist Hulk does day to day in quest to smash gender binary, to bake delicious cupcakes, to find more efficient ways to smash, and new ways to adore bell hooks. Perhaps Feminist Hulk has an archenemy! Perhaps Feminist Hulk loses favourite tiny purple shorts. idek! I just love Feminist Hulk and want to see more of Feminist Hulk than Feminist Hulk's tweets.

If I've said anything that makes you want to scream and run away then please please just IGNORE ME, and write something you'll enjoy writing and actually feel content with; these are all fandoms for which I'd be made happy by many many things, so many, I don't even know how to articulate them all. I am a SIMPLE CREATURE. (and I should probably say that the things I like to read about aren't limited to the kinds of things I like to write.)

Soooo I thought maybe this would be a good thing to have up somewhere; that's what people seem to do. 

DISCLAIMER FOR EVERYTHING: These characters are not mine. I make no profit. It is all totally made up.

All most of this is archived at the AO3. If something isn't it's usually because it's a kink meme fill and I'm trying to find a deep and serious title for it. The RPF is friendslocked due to the potential for extreme embarrassment.

Comments, criticism etc are much appreciated; they're only going to make me better at doing this, aren't they, and especially if you point out something that just doesn't work.

because MY fandom DOES! (well, kind of) (also, it probably doesn't really count as a fandom, it is this fandom, sadly not this one, but EVEN SO!)

How did I not know this? How can I have LIVED without this knowledge? Admittedly if I am ever going to make it there will be a certain difficulty (tracking down American-style pistachio flavour pudding mix, lol what) but maybe there will be something on ebay.

I am home from university, anyway, so there is a functional oven accessible. WOOOO RETRO FOOD! My fandom can haz a flavr! and it is pistachio!

eta: more information on the so-called Watergate Cake (with cover-up icing!) can be found here, near the bottom of the page; the relevant parts are c&pd

This is, I supose, part n of a continuing series entitled: Fic No One Else Wants, But God Damn It, I Do. This is not Slaine's birthday porn, or even poor neglected Sheera's. I mean, unless either of them wants to claim it. Sparked off by the Pink Shell Motel challenge, but took a left turn and didn't actually go there.

Title: (Not the) Pink Shell Motel
Length: about 2000 words
Fandom: All The President's Men
Pairing: Woodward/Bernstein.
Rating: er, R? sex? Imagine Stephen Colbert saying FEELTHY PORRN in the same voice he uses to say "needlessly frightened" here. According to [ profile] immoralilly    , Woodward/Bernstein is about 4 on a scale of one-to-ten of BadAndWrongness, so. That's your warning. Yes, this is what we call Pretendy Fun Time. N.B. The fic's set during a generic early-part-of-the-movie time, when they haven't had much success, people won't go on the record with their statements, Deep Throat's being secretive, their stories are getting "non-denial denials", etc.
