Before signups end, I’m going to add a few thoughts on the fandoms I requested, but for rl reasons, I probably won’t be writing a full letter.
Likes: I like plot and fluff and angst mixed up in various ways. Plotty fluff, angst with a hard-earned happy ending, case fics and adventures, characters enjoying each other’s company, imperfect people cautiously discovering each other, hurt/comfort with more of an emphasis on the comfort. Common fanfic tropes I enjoy are fake-dating & fake-married, characters writing books/blogging about each other, apocalypse, unrealistic amnesia, time travel, and vampires
Do Not Wants: explicit sex, extreme violence, bestiality, bdsm, genderswap, omegaverse, character death
Fandoms: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, T2 Trainspotting, Sherlock Holmes
A couple of years ago, I was invited to a free screening of a film I was very excited about with the expectation that I would talk it up on social media. I agreed, but then I had serious problems with the film, so I didn’t post anything about it anywhere. So when I had the chance to see an early screening of T2 Trainspotting, I didn’t go. It seemed like an unnecessary nostalgia trip, and I thought I would hate it, especially as I didn’t really like Porno. Ngl, Sick Boy is my favourite character in Trainspotting, and in Porno he is a complete psychopath. A real psychopath, not a Moffat-psychopath.
Well… as a film, it’s not so great, but as the Sick Boy/Renton fanfic I’ve been wanting for 20 years, it is FANTASTIC.

THAT IS NOT COMMENTARY FROM ME, THAT IS ACTUALLY IN THE FILM
A bad man takes their clothes and makes them do bad things. Okay, that is my interpretation, but I think it is valid and so do the cows.
First, attempted murder. Later, rescue, and then cuddling on the sofa. (In this context, too high to move counts as cuddling.)
In conclusion, the Sick Boy/Renton ship name should be ‘Rent Boy’ even though that is Renton’s nickname in canon, and I may have to reconsider my decision to stop doing Yuletide because that might be the only way to get fic for this film.
