Hump Day

Dear flist: I am sorry that I have been so random lately. Apparently I am driving off readers in droves. I fully support your choice to make your reading list a place of joy, and I send you well wishes on your internet journeys. *hankies*

That's a reminder that it's always okay to take me off your lists/feeds/etc. It's YOUR internet time. I'm picky, too. I get it.

ION, last night I started reading a Sterek fic where it involved forced mating due to the werewolves having their annual "heat" and while there is that part of me that is ashamed that I made spastic grabby hands at that, I remembered that there is no kink shaming allowed. Unless it's stuff that is, you know, morally repugnant and highly illegal world-wide.

So let's have fun talking about bullet-proof kinks/story tropes! We haven't done this in a while. Mine are:
  • first time, especially when things are awkward
  • frantic, desperate quickies where they feel like they could die if they don't touch the other
  • forced marriages (oh my god.)
  • forced coupling for the betterment of a people/to save a loved one's life
  • Tarzan (lol)
  • opposites attract only to find out just how similar they are underneath

What are yours? And if they are in the Glee or Teen Wolf fandoms (ooh, or movie Sherlock fandom) PLEASE TELL ME AND LINK ME. :)

*chin fists, beaming*

This post brought to you by my need to look at my icon of Stiles Stilinski coupled with the words Hump Day.
*dives back into writing this stoopid soul mate fic oh my god*
*remembers I produced 2500 words today so far, so quit yer yappin', me*

You just reminded me that a friend and I decided a while back to organise a BLANK-made-them-do-it fic fest and we never did... (people were going to be able to choose their own pairings but what filled that BLANK would be randomly assigned to them. Even if that meant writing fic about aliens in something like glee fandom.)
Dec. 12th, 2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. I love when people can come up with a great story that rings true to the characters, and yet can bend the world to fit a crazy trope. <3
Dec. 12th, 2012 05:59 pm (UTC)
I love made them do it, first times, oblivious best friends, enemies forced to pull together to save (the more they hate each other, the sweeter the coming together), and marriages of convenience fics. Of course, if the story isn't well written and spell checked by more than spellcheck I am out of there. Seriously, one waste instead of waist or other easy catches I will drop your fic like it is on fire. It's a peeve. I have them.

Hour and a half long walk because even though it's in the mid-30's it's sunny and wonderful outside. Is everyone in my neighborhood baking cookies? It sure smelled like it!

Sorry, I don't read in your fandoms :(
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:25 pm (UTC)
So your first sentence? That's, like, EVERY FIC in Teen Wolf. ;D And for the most part, people there that I've read know how to cobble sentences together (which, I hate to say it, is a relief after living in Glee for a few years where it's clearly people's first foray into writing anything.)

Ooooh, I want to duplicate your long walk and then make myself some cookies...
Dec. 12th, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC)
Two of my fave Merlin writers have drifted over to Teen Wolf: lolafeist and fr333bird. Yes the fandom is calling my name.

Mexican Wedding Cakes in the oven!

I think I need some Mexican Wedding Cookies! Wait, I need to make sure I have the good butter first...

In case I don't, save me a piece. :D

For the longest time I was pretty sure that I didn't have any bullet-proof kinks and stuff like that... But then I realised that I will read any fic in any fandom if it's labeled fisting or tentacles. *grin* Most other things I love, like frotting and desperate wall-sex, I am still sort of a little picky about what fandom it is, as I'd like to be familiar with the people involved. But tentacles and fisting? I don't care who they are! LOL (Sadly though, I often get really disappointed, as well-written fisting is hard to find.)

And sorry to say, I don't read in your fandoms either so I have nothing to rec you.
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha! Oh, the tentacle/hentai porn. Fortunately there are CENTURIES of that for you to read!

OMG, desperate wall sex... There was one in PoTC with that (Sparrington) and I'm biting my fist just REMEMBERING that one. *fans self*

I'm okay without recs, I just love talking fanfic and people's likes/dislikes!
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:41 pm (UTC)
There is! It's a trope with history behind it! :D

Mmmmm, Sparrington is damn hot, and I can just imagine how sizzling desperate wall sex would be between them. *fans self*

It's cool isn't it? All the stuff that make us drop everything else and just devour words! <3

Really? Oh! I'll have to find that too! :D
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:16 pm (UTC)
made them do it is pretty great, I admit :)
were you reading Alpha Spikes?^^
there is actually a pretty good series by jerakeen (that is nearly finished) called Famous Last Words that is going through all possible made them do it scenarios (witches, elves, etc.) while also being as consenting as possible with it
Another heat centered one I really like (which later includes about the only mpreg I ever liked in the TW Fandom, but the heat made them do it part can be read as a stand alone) is The Tried and Tested Series

Things that I always like (and I'm also ashamed of them of them, even though I know I shouldn't be...) are bondage, gagging, voice porn, come play (I know), breath play, double penetration, generally rough sex, wall sex, size kink well written tentacle porn shut up....because of Teen Wolf also knotting I don't know, but it's the only fandom I read that in.

Sure fire tropes for me are Outsider POV, someone-finds-out (I don't even care who finds out what, I just love the idea of secrets coming out), related to that truth spells, AWKWARD FAMILY REUNIONS, high school au's, superhero au's, PINING, pretend-boyfriends^^
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:30 pm (UTC)
Ha! I was indeed reading that one! I didn't finish it because I was exhausted, but that's on my docket for tonight. Oh, I think I read something else by Jerakeen, so I'm glad you thought to link me to a new one, thank you!

...I really really dislike MPreg unless it's meant as a joke. It's a personal thing. But thank you, anyway!

Let your freak flag fly, bb! You like what you like, and it's OKAY. Ooh, Voyeurism is a good one, too. TRUTH SPELLS OMG. Yes yes yes. When they are all doped up and smiling, "You know, I've had a crush on you for years. In fact, I just had a nice little dream about you last night. We should hook up." And everyone goes silent. HEE!
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
haha I'm actually not that much into the whole alpha/beta/omega thing, because I think it's kind of iffy, but alpha spikes was just so delightful^^

And man I hear you about the mpreg thing, I normally stay far, far away from it, because a lot of the time authors tend to make very....questionable statements about gender/identity and what being pregnant does to your personal characteristics that I can't get behind. (though I'd still say read the first story, there is no mpreg in there, it can totally stand on its own and if you like "in heat" stories, you'll definitely like that one^^)

Awkwardness in general is just so a good thing. And oh man voyeurism, or even being caught. I have such a thing for assumptions turning out wrong, so I will pretty much read any and all fics along the line of "we though X was the more dominant, because haha stereotypes, oops what have we stumbled over here?!"
Dec. 12th, 2012 07:33 pm (UTC)
MPreg frustrates me on a few levels. First, I think it's a vehicle for women to hate their bodies and what they can do, so they sanitize and Hallmark-ify birth and shove it onto shaved, perfect male bodies.

As a woman that has had natural childbirth and is a huge proponent for women to be proud of what is unique about them (not that a woman has to have a baby to be important, I'm just saying the power to do so alone - and to not use that - is awesome.) to give YET ANOTHER THING to men upsets me.

I know I'm like the only person ever to see MPreg that way, but eh.

BEING CAUGHT STRESSES ME OUT, OMG. Oh, I'll still read it, it just brings me to the edge of a panic attack. :D ASSUMPTIONS BEING WRONG!! YES YES YES.
Dec. 12th, 2012 08:19 pm (UTC)
No, I totally get what you are saying about mpreg. Because the thing is, if you want a certain character to have kids...give them kids? There are several options. Or if you totally want a certain character to be pregnant (why ever you do) either take a female character or make them female for the story, because that is the magic of fanfiction! You can just do that!

So, I just don't see any reason for it to even exist in the first place. I think your explanation is the first one I've ever read where it even gets any reasoning, so I'll guess I'll go with that one.

ASSUMPTIONS BEING WRONG IS THE BESTES OF THE THINGS!! Which is why I'll always love stories where Blaine wears lingery and Derek is really good with kids and Kurt is bamf and Stiles is an excellent baker ;)
Dec. 12th, 2012 10:51 pm (UTC)
also it's rilly grotendous
Dec. 12th, 2012 10:57 pm (UTC)
Dec. 12th, 2012 06:45 pm (UTC)
I love first times (who doesn't, really) and fic where the characters are sort of learning and exploring each other for the first time- I find in general that straight porn doesn't do it for me, but porn with the right dash of FEELINGS is perfect.

Also I have apparently really gotten into sexuality as an expression of the divine/devotion, i.e. sex as an act of prayer. Oh god, I am so sorry. I'm sorry for EVERYTHING. This is what comes of being in fandoms with a heavy Catholic influence.
Dec. 12th, 2012 07:30 pm (UTC)
Oh, I NEED feelings in my porn, otherwise it's just... hmm, it feels flat. In other words, YES.

Ha, I wrote incest fic once (oh my god. They're supernatural beings, if that helps? Angel/Connor) where tears because a type of lube and prayer. Oh! And in my LDS Missionary story I had them use sacred oil s lube, making it all the more special. HAHAHA.

Apologies are not needed, in other words. :D
Dec. 12th, 2012 08:11 pm (UTC)

Or being Catholic. Ahem.
Dec. 12th, 2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
frantic, desperate quickies where they feel like they could die if they don't touch the other

HOMG YES. Especially if they haven't been together in AGES AND AGES. Which leads me to:

- Reunion sex after years not having seen each other
- Father/son dynamic, and/or daddy!kink (hello, who am I)
- Talking dirty during sex, especially if the voice is Spike's
- Dom/sub role-switching
- MIRRORING! Realizing that underneath all their differences they are somehow EXACTLY THE SAME.
- Relating through sex because they suck at communication. In other words, pretty much every m/m pairing ever. :D
Dec. 12th, 2012 08:55 pm (UTC)
REUNION SEX OH MY GOD. I, um, may have written a good 13000 words of reunion sex for a fic. :D YEAH. I LIKE THAT THERE STUFF TOO.

Communication through sex is the BEST OMG. Give me the tangled, complicated feelings through boning, YES.

You would think, considering how long I've been around the multiple fandoms, that my kinks would have all been discovered. I have the word count kink, the top/bottom kink, I even have a dub-con kink, and yes, I even have a love for mpreg (as long as they explain it in a plausible way), along with all the everyday one's that a lot of other's have.

But...thanks to Teen Wolf, I have discovered a few new kinks...these being: Mates (I'm still a sucker for romance though, Heat fic, and knotting (omg! this is the hottest thing sometimes)
Dec. 12th, 2012 10:59 pm (UTC)
....I am just discovering knotting. I mean, I've seen it around, but it was never in any fandoms I was reading and...

Dec. 12th, 2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
Oh bullet proof kinks:

-Banter, a lot of the fadoms/pairings I read include lots of banter and snark.
-Aliens made them do it, with bonus points for what 'it' is (I wrote one once where aliens made the characters do the hokey pokey)
-and I'm a sucker for waking up married fics. Especially if the characters decide to stay married and work through their feelings.
Dec. 12th, 2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
WAKING UP MARRIED!! I love "whoops, we're married now. Hi, stranger!" fics with a passion.

Dec. 13th, 2012 12:42 am (UTC)
Oh man I love pretend-boyfriends and best-friends-becoming-lovers and stories where everyone knows they're a couple but the couple themselves [until they figure it out and then there's kissing and/or sex].

And puppyplay, I really love puppyplay.
Dec. 13th, 2012 12:57 am (UTC)
First, I heartily support randomness. And the words "hump day" next to whoever that fine example of eye candy is in your icon *runs away with fingers in ears* la, la, la, I can't hear you!

I haven't been at this fandom thing long, so I've yet to fully explore my kinks and tropes, but there are a few:
-Hidden or forbidden relationships. Sneaking around. Staying quiet. Desperate, stolen kisses and furtive groping and omg we have to stop because someone's coming and...Gah.
-Post adventure/fighting evil/random-dangerous-activity sex. Knights and superheros and creatures of the night...
-Dub con. Never thought that'd do it for me, but *shrugs*. Bonus points if it's in any sort of fantasy/sci-fi realm.

And let me give a hell yeah for reunion sex. Especially if it's after years of pining so it combines those must have you now or I will fucking die feels with some first-timey angst and/or awkwardness.
Dec. 13th, 2012 03:14 am (UTC)
OKAY. Okay. We have to talk about my icon. Because he is my dream boyfriend, even more than Darren. I KNOW. That, my darling, is Dylan O'Brien, aka "Stiles" on the ridiculous show Teen Wolf. He is delicious and hilarious and goofy, aka, a perfect boy for me. Hahaha.


Oh, kinks are so fun. I mean, it's awful when they're poorly executed, but sometimes, when they're all there... MAGIC. I'm with you on the Dub/Con on both accounts - hot and disturbing that it is. Eh, it's reading, it's not real life, you know?

REUNION SEX! You might recall that I'm awfully fond of that, too. :D
Dec. 13th, 2012 04:09 am (UTC)
Sorry, I couldn't hear you with my fingers in my ears. He plays teen GOLF? But I don't like golf. Nice try :D I will not give in I will not give in

And yeah, me be familiar with your aptitude for writing reunion sex *fans self*
Dec. 13th, 2012 06:33 am (UTC)
That is also basically my list, only replace "Tarzan" with "pining." XD

ETA: And add "amnesia" to that list! Man, that one Sterek amnesia fic is freaking amazing. Brb, rereading.

First times
Well written dirty talk (it's an art)
D/s dynamics especially in het fic, especially when the woman tops
Doppelganger sex (Elena/Katherine; RedK!Clark/Clark)I love this but not many fandoms lend themselves to it.
We have to pretend to be a couple and it leads to sex
Catholic kink (no I don't have any shame)
Mommy or Daddy kink

Dec. 17th, 2012 09:48 pm (UTC)
Dude. I am a darkfic fan. If people saw what I enjoy reading, I'd be put in a mental institution... *hangs head in shame*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
