Thank you so much for participating in Yuletide! I’ve provided a lot of prompts per fandom, mostly because they are repeat requests so I have had A Lot Of Time To Think, but they are merely suggestions; you write the fic that you want to write!

General things I like and dislike:

I love: complex, contradictory relationships (esp. platonic); unrequited or seemingly unrequited gay pining; anxiety disorders!!!; characters crying and being miserable; darkfic (my Crueltide thread); HUMOR!!; memory stuff (memory manipulation, amnesia, traveling through memories, etc.); person A traveling to an alternate universe or timeline where they're either in a relationship with or were never in love with person B; universe-hopping stuff in general, really; smut lol (as long as characters are of age); really though I could read a million gay pining fics; fandom politics??

I am fine with: Angst; AUs; character death; explicit sex; explicit violence (but please spare the eyeballs, teeth, and nails); infidelity; gen/het/slash/femslash/multi; most kinks; PWP; whatever POV. If I don't say anything about it, assume I'm cool with it.

I dislike: Explicit underage sex; AUs that drastically change the characters circumstances, e.g., historical AUs, sports AUs, no powers AUs, werewolf/vampire AUs. Also, I guess; A/B/O.

Thanks for your time and effort!! The contents of this post are super optional suggestions; I want you to have fun this Yuletide and will appreciate anything with the characters I requested. ♥ I've also included accessibility notes for each fandom in case you're having trouble with the one for which we were matched. Happy writing!

General things I like and dislike:

I love: complex relationships (esp. platonic); sadness or anxiety handled in a subtle, understated way; queer characters with actually or seemingly unrequited crushes (or to go dark, seemingly requited but actually unrequited!!); darkfic + horror AUs; memory stuff (memory manipulation, amnesia, traveling through memories, etc.); person A traveling to an alternate universe or timeline where they're either in a relationship with or were never in love with person B; smut lol (as long as characters are of age); really though I could a million gay pining fics; fandom politics

I am okay with: Angst; AUs; character death; explicit sex; explicit violence; het/slash/femslash/multi; genderswap/reimagining characters as trans; most kinks; PWP

I dislike: A/B/O; first-person POV unless it's epistolary or something; fridging (please do not kill a character for the purpose of angst, but horror casualties with some angst as a necessary result are entirely okay); mpreg when it doesn't address trans-ness; racebending is awesome in other things but throws me off in fic idk

Oh, dear. Ultimates. I've read the first series and two issue of the 2004 series and I am enjoying it so much. The cohesiveness of the storytelling is something that I've not gotten from Marvel so far except in Marvel 1602. It's nice. The characters are very different from their counterparts in other continuities, and they're very difficult to love given that most of them lack any redeeming qualities, but I can appreciate these grittier, nastier versions because I kind of enjoy fuckfests of terribleness. And I tend to count characters' flaws as merits anyway.

Thoughts on the characters; spoilers )

YESSSSS. Has anybody else around here read Ults? I want to read Ultimate X-Men, as well. What else in this universe should I read?

edit: OKAY WOW I FINISHED VOLUME 2 LAST NIGHT AND UGH ALL MY FEELS. This series is seriously contending against Marvel Adventures as my favorite. I HURT.

edit2: Ugh, I hate the writer/penciller change after Ultimates 2. The art in Ultimates 3 was pretty sexist, and the story didn't go anywhere. Ultimatum is even more sexist and is just depressing. This series has turned into one misery after another, and I feel like Loeb is more concerned with racking up a body count than with actual storytelling. Why are these characters even dying. How does this serve the story. And can Finch stop drawing women in ridiculous poses. Come back to me, Millar+Hitch. Uggghhhh.

Today I started reading The Ultimates, Marvel's reimagining of the Avengers launched in 2002. I'd tried reading it back in December, before I'd started on Earth-616 or Marvel Adventures, but I was put off by the giant Hank Pym prancing around everywhere, and I think it was hard to get into something so serious when I didn't know any of the characters. This time around, I both know and care about a majority of them, so I'm enjoying it a lot more.

Darbles will be aghast, though. She despises Ults and spends a lot of her time trying to convince people to avoid it, myself included. I hope she realizes, though, that Bruce Banner having a Buffy the Vampire Slayer poster in his quarters means that I have no choice but to continue.

I'm four issues into the series so far. I've yet to encounter any of the craziness Darbles used to try to deter me from reading, but tbh I was sort of intrigued by a lot of it, and I love grittiness, so I suspect I'll actually enjoy Ults quite a bit.

Spoiler warning for The Avengers for this next part

I have a problem with fix-it fic. )
