First off, thank you so much for writing for me. Yuletide is one of my favorite times of the year, mostly because it's filled with such lovely people. I'm sure you're just as lovely as all the other yuletiders that I've met over the years, and I hope that you've been matched on something you've always wanted to write (as opposed to one of the oh-my-god-I-can't-believe-I-signed-up-for-THAT-I-must-have-been-outta-my-mind fandoms...)
As for general likes and dislikes, I'm pretty easy. In general, I prefer het or gen but am quite willing to be sold on femslash. Mixed threesomes or moresomes (by which I mean at least one of each sex) are always welcome if they work within the story. I usually prefer stories that focus on women characters (or at least feature them prominently), so m/m slash stories just don't hold my attention as well as the other categories. I love G-rated and NC-17 fics equally, as well as everything in between. I'm squicked by marijuana and other drugs, underaged sex, and anything non-consensual. Humiliation humor isn't my favorite thing in the world but I can take it in small doses. Possessiveness, jealousy, and adultery all make me uncomfortable and can kill a story for me unless your fic is going to a very dark place and one of those three elements are critical to the plot. Lighthearted stories with possessiveness or jealousy just creep me out. I adore age differentials in 'shippy stories, but I guess that only applies for this set of requests if you're planning to write "Wormwood." (Or possibly Ham/Ruby. It blows my mind even contemplating it, but I'd read the hell out of that if you wanted to go there.)
Also, please remember that OPTIONAL DETAILS ARE OPTIONAL!!! I absolutely believe this. If you have an awesome idea for a story, please don't read any further because I'd love to read whatever you already have planned out. If, on the other hand, you need some ideas, hopefully one of these will help.

In the end, dear writer, the one thing that will make me happiest is if YOU have fun writing for me. If you twist your view of canon to match mine, you won't have fun writing and that usually shows in the final story. Please, write something that you enjoy and you can feel proud of, and I can just about guarantee that I will adore it. Whatever else you do, don't stress out on my account!
On a side note, I don't use my personal journal at all any more. There's no reason for you to wade through my journal because there will be nothing for you to find for the last three years. (Don't worry. There was no wank and you haven't been assigned a drama queen. I just realized that I needed to pay more attention to my personal life than my on-line one, and the only way I could do that was go cold turkey from my way too incredibly nice f'list. If I had only filled my f'list with mean people, I could have kept it up and ignored everyone. Sadly, fandom is filled with far too many wonderful people, and I have a somewhat addictive personality...) The only current things you'll find on me are recent fanfics, and those are all here in my fanfic journal. I apologize if you were looking forward to the stalking...

Again, and one last time, THANK YOU!!! YOU'RE WONDERFUL!!!!!!!
