First of all, thank you so much for agreeing to participate in this challenge! This is my 3rd Rarewomen and it's a highlight of my fannish year. There are so many fantastic female characters out there and I'm so glad we have this challenge where likeminded fans can get together and celebrate them.

Please take all my optional suggestions and fannish blatherings as just that...suggestions. If there's a story idea you have for these characters that you like better, go for it! I’m comfortable with any rating. Follow your muse and I know you'll write a great story! If you'd like to see the type of stories I write and like, please feel free to check out my work on AO3 or at ffn where I write as green lion Very little of my journal is flocked, so feel free to explore my entries here as well.

General Likes: Humor, bittersweet emotions, character studies,“five things” fic, shades of grey morality, canon divergent AUs, competence, relationships where both partners learn from each other

Dislikes
: I don't particularly like stories that involve non-con, hurt/comfort, or death of a major character- if a character dies in canon, that's fine. I'm also not a fan of wildly divergent “in space” or mundane (coffeeshop, high school, college...) AUs.

On Porn:
I often say that I enjoy "Porn With Plot." What does that mean? I take that to mean smutty sexytimes that feel true to the characters and their world. It doesn't necessarily mean that I want a well-plotted mystery with a sex scene thrown in ( though I'd probably read the hell out of that and really enjoy it!) but just that sex should hopefully reveal something about the characters and have some relationship to the larger themes of the story. As someone who has written everything from G-rated fluff to explicit BDSM, I'm pretty easygoing about sexual content. I don't think things need to be sexually explicit in order to be sexy. But I don't object to smut, either, if that is something you want to include. As far as kinks go, I don't particularly enjoy watersports, ageplay, furries, breathplay, or a/b/o. But anything else is fair game!

Note: This letter contains spoilers for Breaking Bad. 

Edited and updated as of 3/9/14. 

Optional details for Breaking Bad, Hannibal, Kushiel's Legacy, and Wise Child )

Trust me, I'm a Doctor. Sorta. I have some minor revisions, so it's not completely over, but basically they let me into the guild. Yay! When people ask me what it feels like, I keep telling them it's really surreal. When you devote six years of your life to something, it's very strange to have it come to a climax in one afternoon. But gradually it's sinking in. And since I do have a job waiting for me, I can honestly say that I feel ready to be a professor and no longer kept in the perpetual adolescence that is grad school. Thanks so much to all of the folks who left nice comments and cheered me on through the final lap!

Oh and so in the middle of it all, I received a lovely Rarewomen gift from [archiveofourown.org profile] ivy She wrote me the Sidonie/Amarante fic I have always longed for. Both women are so beautifully rendered. The Kushielverse has such rich female characters and it was wonderful to see these two finally get some well-deserved attention.

Trust (1809 words) by ivy
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Kushiel's Legacy - Jacqueline Carey
Relationships: Amarante de Namarre/Sidonie de la Courcel, Bérèngere de Namarre & Phèdre nó Delaunay
Characters: Amarante (Kushiel's Legacy), Sidonie de la Courcel, Ysandre de la Courcel, Phedre no Delaunay, Bérèngere de Namarre, Alais de la Courcel
Summary: Neither trust nor friendship come easily, especially when they are thrust upon you.

In return, I wrote Armistice Day, an Edith-centric Downton Abbey fic set post-season 3. It focuses on Edith's career as a novelist and a reconciliation between her and Mary. Harkening back to discussions on "id-fic" with [personal profile] likeadeuce I can honestly say that Mary and Edith reconciling and Edith having a career of her own are definitely rooted in my deepest desires for both characters. If i were Julian Fellowes, this is what I would do in season 4. Oh and I gave Edith Dorothy Sayers' life. If only I could have worked in Gwen taking a job as Edith's personal secretary....


Recs for Kushiel's Legacy, Hunger Games, Political Animals )

Rarewomen Prompts )

Let me present to you my new OTP of the moment. In the past few days i have gotten absolutely hooked on Irene/Molly Sherlock fic. Granted, I read an Irene/Molly story a few months back and really liked it, but  now that I have taken the opportunity to seek out more I loooooove it. And though there is no hint to suggest this pairing in canon as the two ladies in question never actually meet, it just makes so much sense. Well, so much sense to me anyway that sweet, odd, good girl Molly and cold, calculating, bad girl Irene would be perf together. Because Molly is so much stronger than even she knows....and she craves a regard that Sherlock could never give her, but perhaps Irene can. Gah. I love them. The Dominatrix and the Cat Lady. (I should write a fic called that...)

Some Fic Recs )

I also signed up for rarewomen again this year. Despite it being right around Must Finish Dissertation time, I figure I can find time to write at least one challenge fic. You can read my noms here. I am still trying to narrow down my requests. So many wonderful ladies to choose from.

V and i watched the first three eps of House of Cards on Netflix over the weekend.
