Let me just say first and foremost that the reason I got into fandom to begin with was due to a tendency to latch onto minor characters and milk the backstory out of them even if I had to fill in 90% of the gaps myself. I love getting to see other people's takes on their inner workings and I'm not picky about the direction your interpretation takes as long as you write it credibly. It can be the most outrageous space coffeeshop high school AU known to humanity and I'll eat it up with a spoon the size of Saturn if you sell me on it. One thing I love about Yuletide is how it stretches the creativity of everyone involved and I always enjoy seeing just how wildly different another person's approach to canon can be from my own. Any rating is fine by me, and you're free to write anything from happiness or horror.
That said, I'm not a fan of crossovers (especially if I don't know the source material), soulmate AU's (they just make me want to pick apart the plot holes and the idea of characters being literally made for each other does nothing for me), or fic being used as either a battering ram or a soapbox. Also here's the obligatory mention that I'd prefer no kinks that involve bodily fluids better suited for the bathroom. No shame in that if it's your thing, it just isn't mine.
If you need clarification on any point, I'm re-crudescence on tumblr and you're welcome to send me an anonymous ask. I'm less active on LJ and DW, but anon comments either of these places are fine as well.
Now that you know a little something about me, and I obviously know that you're here because you have impeccable taste in small fandoms...
