All of my completed stories (and my masterlist) are open to the public, of course.

But for the sake of organization, most of my random babbles, fandom rants, previews, and plans are friend locked. Feel free to friend me if you like, but just know that I post a lot of things other than my completed fics.

Not Prime Time; Dear Writer Letter
Amy | Default
themuslimbarbie
Hi, Writer! I've only done one ship swap before and I've never done this one before, so I hope I do this right. Feel free to message me on Tumblr if you have any questions.

Okay, so the biggest things I'm not a fan of are fics that are non/dub-con. I just can't handle it. I'm also not a big fan of fics with OC children, unless it's just some sort of ending thing or if the kids aren't actually involved in the story much. I don't mind OCs, but I'm predominately there to read about my ship. I'm also not a fan of bashing a past relationship in order to make a current one look good. Like, it's one thing if the relationship ended badly and there's baggage and another thing to just attack a past relationship.
I love happy fics and I love angsty fics. In particular, I love angsty fics that have happy endings. But I'm not that particular with that, so don't stress if that's not where the story takes you. I'm totally just excited to get more fic for my ship. I'm totally down for AUs if that's where your plot bunny leads you. I'm not terribly big on High School AUs, but I ADORE college and grad school AUs.

For specific fandoms

Arrow
Sara Lance, Oliver Queen

  • I'm not even gonna lie - these two are my otp of otps. I just adore them so much. Like, I don't really believe in soulmates, but Oliver and Sara are soulmates. I just think they are such a beautiful and healthy couple, and they are just so honest with each other and so good for each other. Sara does such a good job at getting Oliver to open up and calls him out on his shit and she just brings out the best in him. Oliver keeps Sara grounded, not just because of their relationship, but because he keeps pulling her back to her family.

  • Obviously I love them as a ship, but I also love them as friends and partners. Arrow and Canary were always so in synch when they fought (when they go and fight the Mayor and switch weapons??? oh my god.). I just love everything about their interactions.

Sara Lance, Laurel Lance

  • Okay, but Sara and Laurel's relationship is so important to me because it's one of the most beautiful examples of female relationships. Season three missed SO MUCH by not having them as Canary Sisters who fight crime and kick ass together. Sara should have been Laurel's trainer and mentor, and I'm forever bitter that she's not.

  • I would love something where they are just Canary Sisters, superheroes who kick ass and take names. Or something where Laurel brings Sara back with the Pit. Or something where Sara has been in hiding and comes to Laurel. Or basically anything where Sara is somehow alive. Season two or three. I don't care as long as Sara's alive and she and Laurel are together.

Batman (Comics)
Jason Todd, Stephanie Brown

  • I just really love these two, okay? I think there are so many possibilities to draw parallels or contrasts between them. I think Jason would be great for praising Steph, and Steph would help Jason get grounded. I don't really care about the situation - Jason can be good, Steph can be evil, they can both be morally ambigious, whatever works. I just think there's so much potential here and I'm so bitter they haven't met in the canon.


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Skye/Trip

  • They're the pretty kids who can bat their eyelashes and smile their way into just about anything. They're both competitive but compassionate and caring and they just want to help people and they're just such good people. But they're also the kinds of people who will do the right thing even if it means breaking the rules. They're just so good together and super flirty and pretty, and there was SO MUCH potential with this ship and we just never got to see it because of the mid-season finale and I'm still devasted and holding out hope that he's alive somehow.


Elementary (Jamie Moriarty)
Jamie Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes

  • I have such a weak spot for these two, because this was the role that made me fall in love with Natalie Dormer, and I'm so upset she hasn't been on the show very much. I love Jamie and Sherlock's interactions, especially in context of season one. I'm a bit more hesitant with season two, because I'm not a fan of "the love of a good man" softening her up and influencing her decisions. I'm really interested in the idea of Jamie being a bad influence on Sherlock and potentially dragging him to the dark side. I'm not opposed to Sherlock bringing out some good in Jamie, but I'm just hesitant because she's so bad and I really love that about her.


I hope those help. Thanks so much, writer! I'm really excited to see what you do!

Hi, Writer! I'm so sorry if I butcher this completely, because this is my first time doing this. I am SUPER excited though, because I usually end up shipping the unpopular ship and it usually completely destroys me.

Okay, so the biggest things I'm not a fan of are fics that are non/dub-con. I just can't handle it. I'm also not a big fan of fics with OC children, unless it's just some sort of ending thing or if the kids aren't actually involved in the story much. I don't mind OCs, but I'm predominately there to read about my ship. I'm also not a fan of bashing a past relationship in order to make a current one look good.

I'm totally just excited to get more fic for my ship. I'm totally down for AUs if that's where your plot bunny leads you. I'm not terribly big on High School AUs, but I ADORE college and grad school AUs.

I don't really have anything specific, if you need any more details, you can message me.

As far as specific fandoms go:

Arrow (TV)
Oliver Queen/Sara Lance

  • Oh man, oh man. Like most people I started out kinda digging the Olicity thing, but then Sara came in and she and Oliver got together and I just FELL IN LOVE. I love the way they are together and how good they were for each other. They always seem to get each other when no one else does and they have this beautiful bond that just ties them together. I especially love that Oliver is the one who is fully ready to commit and be with Sara forever, but she's got commitment issues and the only reason they really broke up was because she pulled the "I'm not good for you" cliche on him, which obviously wasn't true because he's just so great around her. And she's just so great around him. They just bring out the best in each other. I don't really believe in soulmates, but Oliver and Sara are totally soulmates.


Batman (Comics)
Jason Todd/Stephanie Brown

  • I don't even know, man. There's just something about this ship that I think would work really well. Speaking mostly in pre-New 52 terms, I think there are a lot of interesting parallels between them that could work well. They're both the "bad kids," the "dead Robins," the kids from the streets, etc.. Out of the entire Bat Family, I think Stephanie would be the one who could reach out to Jason best and really understand where he's coming from and why he's doing it. And I think Stephanie could really help him with his anger and the whole not killing people thing. Or Stephanie could go dark and be the bad Batgirl who kills people with Red Hood. I'm down for whatever.

  • I also think Jason would be really good at letting Stephanie know how good she is at things, because so many people in the Bat Family are constantly telling her how she's not as good as everyone else and how she's such an amateur or that she's just getting in the way, and I don't think Jason would ever do that to her. I think he would actually praise her constantly and not even be patronizing about it or anything.

I hope those help, Writer. I'm really excited to see what you come up with!

Any and every fandom I've ever been in is pissing me off lately. I don't know what to do about this except shake my fist angrily at my computer screen and bury myself in my homework.

Title: The Definitely True Story of Ms Montague
Character: Clara Oswald, Digby, Francesca
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be.
Notes: Requested by ponddepression. Special thanks to obscure_musical.

There certain questions children should never ask adults. So Ms Montague encourages the children to ask her any and all questions that they might have.Collapse )

“Not That You’re Replacing Her!”: Rose/Doctor/Martha vs. Amy/Doctor/Clara

themuslimbarbie

It really warms my heart to see all these posts about how much people love Clara. Really, as a Martha fan, I’m so happy to see that people can love the Companion that comes after Amy. But I’ve also seen a lot of people who say that they aren’t sure if they’re okay with Moffat going the whole Doctor/Clara route. I never minded. At first I thought it was just the multi-shipper in me that wanted it. But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure there’s more to it than that.
