aerielpembroke: lizzie from kuroshitsuji (i'm on a boat!)
Because if I don't do this now I am probably never going to get around to doing it, and I have another exchange letter to write good lord.

First of all, my Alois-hating soul is very pleased with whoever wrote this comment (originates here)

"Well, to be a heartless free-market type about it, you get what you pay for. And Claude bought Alois on the cheap. Look at the difference in contract terms: Sebastian has bound himself to serve Ciel, not lying to him and following all his orders, until Ciel's stated goals are fulfilled, while Claude has only agreed to serve Alois for as long as he feels like it. If that. His actual obligation may have come to an end when Alois inherited the Trancy title and estate.

My sympathy for Claude here is very, very limited. He bought a Big Mac and paid for a Big Mac. If what he really wanted was sushi from Sukiyabashi Jiro, he should have considered that ahead of time, not tried to steal somebody else's."

And now, back to trying to pull together my letter for Gen Swap. And, you know, pack for vacation and hastily do my laundry so I can pack it for vacation.

aerielpembroke: (wolfram and yuuri)
Hello, and thank you for even considering one of my rare ships! My AO3 name is Aeriel and I am ridiculously delighted by the prospect of getting something for one of these ships, whose popularity ranges from 'a fond minority' to 'lol nobody cares'. I tried to make my requests the same size but unfortunately I did not entirely succeed. Please don't think that means I'm less interested in the ones that I said less about! Some of these pairings I got into quite recently and some of them I've been thinking about for so long that I sort of forgot how to explain what I liked about them and thus they ended up shorter.

As a general rule, I am okay with everything from G rated hand holding to explicit shenanigans, though I would rather no underage sex stuff, and no non-con, though with the Death Note ships I totally understand if you want to edge into dub-con. If you are leaning towards writing porn, I would like at least a little bit of story with it. If you are leaning towards not writing porn, no problem!

Hello writer, and anyone else poking around! If we've been matched on one of these fandoms, you clearly have excellent taste, and I shall be delighted to see what you come up with!

I've organized my requests alphabetically, and I promise I am enthusiastic about all of them, even if I rambled more about some than others. I did request Kuroshitsuji twice, but that's because I had two very different prompt ideas that I wanted and realized I didn't have to choose, not because I'm more interested in Kuroshitsuji fic than Fire Emblem fic or Kyou Kara Maou fic, so if we didn't match on Kuroshitsuji, don't be intimidated!

Generally speaking, when it comes to dislikes, I'd rather there not be super graphic violence or non-canonical character death.  Otherwise, as follows are my requests. If I'm in any way too specific, please don't feel constrained by what I've written!

So Kuroshitsuji chapter 91 came out! At last! And I practically devoured it- I actually shouted "No!" when I got to "Continues next month". Teasing us with Ciel developments like that- we better actually get the rest of that scene in April and not just cut to something else. I am loving this new relationship between Finn and Ciel, it's almost interesting enough to make up for the fact that Ciel isn't speaking to Sebastian. Sullivan continues to be kind of amazing, and love the new dress, though she looked pretty great before. But ugh, I am already dying for the next chapter.

In the meantime, I've been watching Kyou Kara Maou, (because I am so late to parties that they may not actually be happening anymore) and am almost at the end of season two, aka the part where Wolfram gets possessed and no. one. notices. For the sake of my sanity, I choose to believe Cheri noticed at least, because come on! He suddenly stops yelling and starts staring wistfully out of windows? Very not Wolfram. The Shori plotline was interesting at first but it's starting to get old having Yuuri's brother jump out and yell at Yuuri for wanting to live his life basically. He's so overprotective, I'm surprised if incest fic for the two of them doesn't already exist. Overall I like the show but I like it best when it's really wallowing in absurdity like the beebear episode, so I'll be happy to see the OVAs.

I am also deep into Naamah's Kiss by Jacqueline Carey and I'm still kind of not sure if I like Moirin? I don't actively dislike her, but at the same time I'm not growing fond of her the way I did with Imriel and Phédre. It's weird. I am terrified that Jehanne is going to die in childbirth though, because I know that she dies, but I don't know how, and that seems like an annoyingly convenient way to get rid of her. Raphael is The Worst and I am terribly glad it looks like he's going to be the villain and not the love interest.

And I think that's everything I've been looking at? For now, anyway.
