first things first


about the fic

I want female characters with agency and self-determination and choices as the centre point, pivot point, reason, and/or purpose of the story.

This first point is an absolute must; I don't want to hear how she needs help or love or children or something and finds it and it makes her a 'better' person, how she helps a couple of guys get together, or undertakes an endeavour where the point is her failure. I want something that's about the success of women, about the amazingness of the female, the feminine, and the feminist.

- depiction (in background or foreground) of het relationships where the guy respects and admires the female character and trusts her professionally, too.
- depiction of female friendships that can transcend the usual splitting points of men and beauty standards
- happy or hopeful endings

do not want
- non-con, dubcon, BDSM without consent negotiation
- female characters pushed to the back of the story
- bodily fluids, guro, etc.

Finally, please don't stress this. I want you to enjoy writing for me! These are ideas that I have, and I'm not hugely attached to them, so if you can write my optional details without twisting your brain in knots, go for it!

If you can't, then focus on the characters I've talked about and write your thing, and it will be fine.

Thank you!

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Tempting as it might be to go with the MCU or Stargate, X-Men, Star Wars, or even He-Man and She-Ra, or novel series such as David Eddings or Patricia Keneally, I might have to go back to the first books I remember consciously reading as the sci-fi/fantasy genre - the Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey.
