Rarecharacters author/artist letter

This is an author/artist letter for the Rare Characters Exchange 2014 (for the rarecharacters community), so anyone else, feel free to ignore :)

Dear writer/artist/creator!

First, thank you so much for offering to write/create something for me! This is my first year doing Rare Characters Exchange, and I am really enthusiastic about it! I know that we share a love for some rare characters, so yay for that!

I very much look forward to seeing/reading whatever you choose to make for me! I am sure I will love it!

Now down to the boring part.


Likes: First, I have very few squicks, so you probably don't need to worry about that. I am fine with any rating from G to NC-17, and I love both plotty fic and PWPs. I love both art and fic, and I would be equally happy with both! For art, all ratings go as well - and I am fine with nudity and explicit sex. I love gen and ship - for ship I prefer het, and moresomes, but I have no problems with slash or femslash as background pairings. I love a lot of tropes, like AMTDI ;) I also love apocafic, though I do prefer there to be some hope in there.

Dislikes: extreme angst, extreme gore, permanent death of my favourite characters, permanent injuries, songfic, syrup-y fluff, deathfics, genderswapped characters

Specific fandoms

Stargate SG-1

This is my favourite show. I love the Tok'ra more than any of the other characters in the show - yes, more so than the members of SG-1. The Goa'uld are wonderful villains, and I love them too! I prefer the earlier part of the show, where the Goa'uld are the villains. I never really liked the Ori. I read a lot of gen for this show, but also a lot of ship.

I love background stories, stories that take place before the show, stories about how someone became a host, stories about the early days of the Tok'ra, stories where you see some episode from a different pov, stories where the Tok'ra get a queen, fixits (there are a lot of Tok'ra I didn't want to die!), AUs as long as it is canon divergence, Tok'ra getting to experience Earth, Tok'ra going on missions with SG-1, daily life of the Tok'ra, funny stories, and many other kinds of stories.

I also love art, drawings as well as icons and banners and manips.

I don't ship any human/human pairings (I'm weird like that), but many human/Tok'ra and Tok'ra/Tok'ra combinations. I am fine with background pairings that are het/slash/femslash/moresomes.

My OTP is Sam/Martouf|Lantash. Other pairings I like are Sam|symbiote/Martouf|Lantash, Rosha|Jolinar/Martouf|Lantash, Malek/Janet, Daniel/Anise|Freya

I am fine with most background pairings, except those pairings that breaks up my OTP. In particular, I do NOT like Sam/Jack.
I am not really fond of Jack O'Neill, particular in the later seasons when he seems more and more hateful of the Tok'ra, but I do like him in the first three seasons.

I don't like Martouf|Lantash being killed off, and I prefer to either ignore that they did so on the show, or bring them back to life again. In fact, I don't read fic that kill off Martouf and/or Lantash, or that unblend them, unless the situation is temporary.

Favourite characters: Lantash, Martouf, Jolinar, Malek, Egeria, Aldwin, Korra, Hathor, Apophis, Zipacna, Sam

Star Trek: TOS

This is the first fandom I read fic in. I love the Vulcans, and mainly ship Vulcans/Vulcans and Vulcans/humans. I really do like the Romulans as well. I don't really like the Klingons. I have no pairings I really dislike, so I am fine with any background pairing (het/slash/femslash/multiple).

I like background stories for the characters, and hearing about their daily life before and during the time we see on the show.

Characters I particularly like: Spock, Sarek, Surak, Saavik, T'Pring, Romulan Commander

Pairings I like: Spock/Uhura, Spock/T'Pring, Saavik/Spock, Amanda/Sarek, Christine Chapel/Spock, Spock/Romulan Commander

First Wave

I like the early part of the show better than the later, particularly I think the end became a bit weird. I like the friendships in this show, particularly the relationship between Cade Foster and Joshua. I don't really ship anyone in this show.

Babylon 5

This is a great show with a wonderful story. I really like the build-up to the war, and the first part of the war against the Shadows. I like the story about Earth and Mars and the resistance too, but I am more interested in the war against the Shadows. I really like the original Kosh, and would have liked to see an AU where he lives. Also an AU where Marcus Cole lives!
I like the rangers - they are fascinating, and I would love a story from their pov.

Favourite characters: Susan Ivanova, Marcus Cole, Lennier, Vir Cotto, Lyta Alexander, Kosh (original Kosh)

I am not so fond of John Sheridan. I don't actively dislike him though. Same goes for Garibaldi.

I don't ship John Sheridan/Delenn.

Pairings I like: Delenn/Lennier, Marcus Cole/Susan Ivanova

Star Trek: The Next Generation

The show I fell in love with first, and watched while growing up. I loved Data and Tasha Yar most, but (IMHO) for this show it was always more about the story, the ship (Enterprise), and the ensemble of the characters, more than it was about any single characters. I don't really ship anyone on this show.
I loved many of the minor characters, like Selar and K'Ehleyr, and Ro Laren. My favourite episodes are probably 'Lower Decks' and 'Who Watches the Watchers'.

I guess what I wrote above was mostly geared towards fic, but I would be equally happy to get art, or icons!

I hope this was somewhat useful :) I guess you can take a look at my AO3 to see a little of what I like.

Regardless, I am sure anything you make for me will be great! I love fic and art equally, and I very much look forward to seeing what you make!

Thank you!
