I usually prefer happy, funny stories, but as long as there's a happy ending I don't mind the occasional angst. I love AUs and crossovers and tropes of all kinds, like outsider-POV! Weird inexplicable animal transformation/age regression! To name just a few. I'm also really into case fic, so depending on the fandom that's always an option as well.
As for squicks/triggers, please avoid non-con and major character death. Also I have a pretty big embarrassment squick. I'm usually not much one for kinks, except for maybe some d/s.
I really, really stick to my OTPs, so I hope there's one among them that you like. Otherwise gen is also fine, of course. If you're looking for inspiration, I have a pinboard where I save everything I read and liked. The <3, * and Awesomeness tags are reserved for my favourite fics.
On to the fandoms! (in no particular order) I've tried to provide some preferences in each case, but please don't feel like you have to stick to exactly what I mention. Once again I've included a lot of smaller fandoms on the list this year, but hey, if you see a tiny fandom on my pinboard that isn't on the list but that you've always wanted to record in? As long as it's the pairing I have bookmarked fics for, go for it.
Sports anime of my heart. <3 I have so many OTPs in this fandom. SO MANY: Oikawa/Iwaizumi is the undisputed number one, but I'd also really love some Yachi/Kiyoko. Aside from those there's Akaashi/Bokuto, Daichi/Suga, Hinata/Kageyama, Ukai/Takeda, Tsukishima/Yamaguchi, Kenma/Kuroo and Hanamaki/Matsukawa.
All for the game:
I'd love some Neil/Andrew future fic! Canon levels of violence and issues are okay.
Six of Crows:
I haven't read much fic for this, and I haven't read Crooked Kingdom yet, but I definitely will have by the time ITPE reveals come around. All the canon pairings are A-okay with me, but I'm not very fond of Matthias tbh, so maybe don't choose anything that focuses on him. Inej and Jesper are probably my favs.
Corvo/The Outsider or any femslash combination for this one. Though I don't want it too dark, so maybe keep Delilah out of it. Some gen focusing on Emily would also be nice - maybe there'll be some good stuff after Dishonored 2 is released!
Simon/Baz set after the book would be great, or maybe an AU if there are any?It's been quite a while since I've read anything in this fandom. Surprise me! :D
Okay, so I came away from AA6 really into Athena/Simon? After not even really shipping it after AA5? IDEK. But yeah, something including them would be nice. Aside from that I like Phoenix/Miles, Klavier/Apollo and Mia/Diego. I'd love something set after/dealing with the events AA6 if you can find any.
Apparently the theme for this year's letter is future fic! Laurent/Damen set after the books would be wonderful. Bonus points for any and all Charlses.
Alright, so I stopped reading Naruto like, 10 years ago, but I still love Iruka/Kakashi fics to death. Stories that are set in more recent arcs are okay as well, as long as knowledge of newer characters or story lines isn't absolutely necessary.
Kuroko no Basuke:
Tbh all I want for this is Midorima/Takao. Maybe Kuroko/Kagami, too. Aside from those two pairings, I am fine with pretty much any combination in background pairings.
I'm not all that familiar with either the Spiderman or the Deadpool canon, but so far that hasn't stopped me from reading fic, so. I am here for this pairing and all their snarkiness.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles:
Kurogane/Fai! And some background Sakura/Syaoran is always adorable.
Think of England:
Look, there are 4 Archie/David fics on the AO3. They're all amazing. Go for it. There are now slightly more than 4 fics on the AO§. They're still all amazing. Go for it.
Gordon Korman books:
My favourite here is Mike/Rudy from I want to go home, and I'm slightly less familiar with but still really like Bruno/Boots from the Macdonald Hall series. Crossovers between different Gordon Korman series are always awesome, and I prefer fics where the boys are grown up, at least near the end of their teenage years.
TSN ( RPF):
When it comes to the social network, I put up with a lot more angst than usual, since it comes with the source material. Mark/Eduardo, preferably set post-movie or entirely AU. For RPF I like Jesse/Andrew, bonus points if a story involves Emma Stone (in a way that doesn't involve break-ups, I should add).
Derek/Stiles, I stopped watching after...honestly, I don't really remember. I didn't watch most of the Alpha-pack stuff? So anything that requires too much knowledge about characters/plot points that were introduced after that might not be the best idea.
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun:
I have read barely any fic for this fandom, but if you find something you like I'd be absolutely delighted to hear it. I ship all the official pairings, Sakura/Nozaki, Hori/Kashima, Seo/Wakamatsu, and the almost canon Mayu/Mikoshiba ;D. Mikoshiba is my favourite, so I'd be extra happy if he was featured.
Tales of Zestiria:
Somehow I haven't read a single Zestiria fic yet, but I would absolutely adore something about my favourite gay history nerds Sorey/Mikleo. <3 (Bonus points for epilogue-era fic obv.) Also, after watching the anime I am even more in love with Alisha than I previously was, so something about her would also be A+++++. Alisha/Rose and Alisha/Sergei are both good.
In the Flesh:
Kieren/Simon, just give me something with a happy ending for everyone, sob.
Oh wow, Kingdom Hearts! I haven't really read any fic in this fandom (or rather, I haven't read any fic in this fandom since I was, like, 15) but I'm sure there must be some out there. Axel has been my favourite for forever, and something Axel/Roxas would be super cool. I'd say I'd prefer AU settings so I can get my happy ending, but recent canon developments have given me a lot of hope in that regard. Aside from them there's also Aqua, whom I love but don't really ship with anyone, so gen stories about her would be lovely.
Smoke and Mirrors is one of my favourite books ever. I am here for established Tony/Lee like you would not believe,
