Placeholder post for purimgifts 2020

So I doubt you’re still checking, but here goes anyways.
Anything I mentioned in my previous purimgifts letters still applies, especially about shipping. The only really important things are:

If you’re writing for Legends of Tomorrow, just know that I haven’t watched the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover (and probably won’t get to it before Purim), though I am aware [Spoiler (click to open)]that Oliver is dead. I haven’t been keeping up with the Flash or Arrow either. And if you’re writing for Brooklyn 99, I’m currently a season behind, and that’s not including the one that’s just started. (I think I’ve seen through season 5?) I don’t mind spoilers, as long as your fic doesn’t require me to have seen these episodes to understand what’s going on in it.

Purimgifts 2018 placeholder post

Anon, I swear I'll get to this before February soon, but right now I just don't have time, sorry. Feel free to check out previous letters for now; most of the stuff will apply (shipwise).
For now, the most important things: I prefer to laugh than to cry, so happy endings only. I stopped watching Once Upon a Time after s6 ended; no dead!Derek if you’re writing Grey’s fic (plz); Tad Cooper is the best Galavant character; and I prefer fic about Parker, Eliot, and Hardison to Sophie and Nate.

Things I like: Jewish related case!fic, not necessarily that "bad things are happening to the Jews" as much as "there is Jewish lore behind this problem and/or knowledge about Judaism is required to solve it" or "someone is fundamentally interpreting the bible in a way most Jews do not". Hurt with comfort, slice of life/domestic stuff, OT3 and shipping, slash and femslash, Gal Gadot (#bae), any character played by Christian Kane, crack, falling in love, wooing, royalty AUs, sailor moon/reincarnation AUs, dystopias (and "how would Jews survive in this world"), mermaids, dragons, giant Legends of Superflarrow crossovers, Felicity Smoak, Uncle Iroh, ladies kicking ass and taking names, Tad Cooper, bisexuals [Sara Lance, Callie Torres, Korra, and Asami], memes, breaking the 4th wall, CONSENT -- especially when they're really getting in the mood and one character says "stop" and they stop, fix-its, episode codas, and true love's kiss.
Ships I like: Cassandra/Jacob/Ezikiel, Flynn/Eve, Usagi/Mamoru*, Katniss/Peeta*, Finnick/Annie*, Eric/Ariel, Emma/Killian or Emma/Regina, Regina/happiness, Santi/Wolfe*, Captain Cold/Heatwave*, Barry/Iris or Barry/Jullian Albert, Kendra/Carter (hawkmates!), Meredith/Derek*, Jackson/April*, Alex/Jo, Zuko/honor, Parker/Eliot/Hardison

Things I do NOT like: bisexual erasure, eye trauma, animal abuse, death!fic, vampire AUs, holocaust AUs, bodice-ripper language (oddly enough, I do love harlequin, but unless it's a parody I don't think it can be done well in <1000 words), breaking up any of the ships above that I starred (especially Japril. You don't have to write these ships, I just request they're not paired with anyone else, you know?), when TV!Jews do the thing where they're ~too pious~ to violate their faith, especially when it's otherwise a case of pikuach nefesh/saving a life (I've included the link because I know not everyone involved in purimgifts is Jewish and/or knows this stuff) [FUCKING LOOKING AT YOU, HOUSE MD; I DON'T CARE THAT IT'S BEEN 10 YEARS], negative Jewish stereotypes

----I know this seems like a lot, but tl;dr- happy endings and Jewish stuff and romance and lulz: GOOD, permanent character death and fundamental misrepresentation of Jewish scripture: BAD 

EXTRA: So I didn't put this in my fandom requests because I'm really picky about this show and I didn't want you to get stuck with matching only this fandom, but I do like Supernatural. Also, I'm only about halfway through season 12, so as long as I don't need to be caught up to understand it, I'll read it. Two exceptions: d*stiel is a NOTP of mine (I'm writing it like that so I hopefully won't pop up in any searchs for it), and if either that pairing is included, or Claire has more than a passing mention I won't read it. Otherwise go nuts; Jewish hunters, Jewish lore, lady hunters, whatever. (I'm a Sam!girl) I also freaking love when Spn goes meta

Thor: hammer time

Core Temperature (1/1)

So I finally popped my fanfic cherry and wrote smut, and in the process have officially become DCColdWave trash. I love it. We need more fanfic about this pair.

Title: Core Temperature
Fandom: DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Pairing: Mick Rory/Leonard Snart (aka Heat Wave/Captain Cold)
Rating: NC-17(ish)
Words: 613
Summary: There's a reason that Leonard Snart chose to wield the cold gun when offered both weapons, and it isn't because he was lying about despising heat.
(a coda to and spoilers for 01x05 minus the last 5 minutes or so)

~link to AO3 because I too lazy to do the formatting thing again~

Guys, I wrote an explicit fanfic. This is a big deal for me.

PS Happy Leap Day!

Short version: not dead

So recently (read: a few months ago *cough*) I downloaded a gba emulator onto my iphone and got reobsessed with playing pokémon, (in my defense, this time it was Emerald, and it's different from Ruby and Sapphire, so... yeah), and one thing about the games is that, in-game, the player character is supposed to be about 10 years-old. Fine, whatever, I don't need to be voting or drinking or idek, but sometimes it's probably better that I'm underage because I'd probably get myself arrested for public indecency.
Anyways, my point is that these others NPCs all think you're a 10-year-old child so they'll come up to you all "pssh, I won't lose to a kid!" or "what's this kid doing here, let me share my vast wealth of knowledge with you," or "aww, you'll be easy to beat because you're a kid," or "how did a child like you foil my plans!?  I'VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF SCOOBY DOO ASDFGHJKL!" And I'm like, "bitch, who you calling a 'kid'!? I've been playing Pokémon since before you were even a pixel in your creators' eyes! Oh, and what is this, the 81st time I'm defeating you?" (yes, I get really invested in these games.) And it annoys me because unless you've linked up with RL friends, it's all being chocked up to luck and the "great bond you have with your pokémon," rather than the fact that I'm just really fucking awesome at it. 

So yeah, that's what I've been doing with my time lately. XP

Also LOL, today was supposed to be my first day back for classes after winter break, but my college is closed for snow. HA HA, BEST; GOING BACK TO SLEEP NOW.

(no subject)

I've been in fandom for over 10 years, and the one thing I still don't get is Transformers!mpreg.

It's not a rule 34 thing or even a YKINMK thing, it's a "how is that even possible, I thought they were made not born" thing. I mean, yes, mpreg in general obviously requires some extra suspension of belief if it's in a completely non-supernatural world, (such as, I dunno, Criminal Minds--it's on tv right now) but I still understand humans getting pregnant. How do transformers even get pregnant!?

Purimgifts 2013! *\o/*

Non-sequitur: Collapse )

~Now on to business!~

Dear purimgifts author,

...I love you...
As usual, I'm pretty easygoing when it comes to fanfic, as long as the ending is happy and my ships aren't broken up (or they get back together), though I do love the angst. And crack. Even if it takes me a few months to comment back, I will always eventually read fic that was written for me. HERE is the tag where you can find my previous purimgifts request letters, and my likes/wants have generally stayed the same. Jewfic is always a plus.

In terms of TV spoilers, I'm gonna say that anything that aired in January 2013 (or earlier, obvs) is fair game, but anything that airs in February I may not have seen. 

You can write genfic or OCs, and I'll be totally fine with that as well, but here are some pairings that I do not want broken up, if applicable, and other things of note:
  • Hunger Games-- Finnick/Annie, Katniss/Peeta; as long as these two pairings, if mentioned, are not split up, I'll love it. But feel free to otherwise go crazy in the HG 'verse.
  • MCU-- Loki/Thor (I know this probably won't be relevant, but if you end up writing fic that happens to have Thor and/or the Avengers in it, I don't want Thor paired with anyone else please), Erik/Charles; I haven't seen either Hulk movie though, so I don't know if I'll be able to appreciate fic written about it. I loves me some Darcy. Also, Coulson lives and Mystique is awesome.
  • Once-- Snow/Charming, Rumpelstiltskin/Belle, Regina/redemption; I've also a fondness for Emma/Regina and Emma/Sebastian Stan!Jefferson, so yes please if you want to include either of those
  • Sailor Moon-- Usagi/Mamoru, Haruka/Michiru, optional: Rei/Minako :D?
  • Grey's Anatomy-- Derek/Meredith, Callie/Arizona, Christina/Owen Collapse ) Denny/Izzy; I don't care that he's dead and she's not even on the show anymore, I love them together sfm.
  • Disney Princesses-- I'm a fan of the established canon pairings, and The Little Mermaid is my favorite
  • Doctor Who-- Amy/Rory; I love River Song like whoa, I don't get Martha/Mickey, but the only pairing I really detest is Jack/Ten
  • Community-- though I do like Jeff/Annie, I know it squicks some people, and I don't have a serious investment in the ship
  • Tamora Pierce's Tortall-- I'm a fan of the established canon pairings, though know that I have not finished the Beka Cooper series
  • Charmed-- Piper/Leo, I don't really follow the comics/season 9/whatever, just the show itself.
Oh my god this is so much and I'm so sorry; I'm almost done, I promise!
  • though it's not on my list, I also like Glee. The reason I haven't requested it is because I stopped watching after season 3, and I don't want someone to be matched up with me, look at the above wall of text, say "holy... screw it!", and still be limited because the only thing they want to write is Glee. As long as knowledge of season 4 isn't completely necessary, and Brittany+Santana aren't broken up, it's all good.
Thank you and chag sameach!

Tsubasa: twilol style

Party like it's 1999!

 So I was going to do a post looking back on the year and all that stuff, but I'm still stuck at a job bumming free wifi from the city an hour after I expected. Happy new year everyone!

On the bright side, I finished my first real college semester with no fails or incompletes! YAY!

I made it through the wilderness

Somehow I made it throooooooooooouugh~
Didn't know how lost I was until I found youuuuu!
::molests internet connection::

So, as you've probably gathered, I survived Hurricane Sandy, but not unscathed! (WHY YES, I DO LIVE IN NEW YORK, THANKS FOR ASKING. I CAN'T IMAGINE HAVING FORGOTTEN TO MENTION IT BEFORE) Our power went out Monday afternoon, and then came back Monday evening, so I had planned on making a post Tuesday morning when I woke up saying "YES I AM STILL ALIVE AND OKAY. HI," but then our power went out again at some point during the night and stayed that way.

And when my mom calls up ConEd, they tell her we probably won't have power back until the middle of next week. Luckily, we actually got power back at some point Friday morning, but as we (the family) were already going away for the weekend, we couldn't really enjoy it for too long.

The best/worst part of it is that my college opened up again last Thursday, but their internet connection was still down, as was the school website, which they had taken down for maintenance Friday before the storm. So anyone without internet at home still couldn't get online and check on the status of their classes. Or, in my case, that my first class was cancelled because my teacher couldn't make it in. 

School is hectic as usual, as is my daily babysitting job, and I have almost all-day Sunday classes, so I don't really have much time to myself to just blog. But to end on a lighter note, I PASSED MY EMT EXAMS! 4 FOR ME!
