General squicks, triggers, and loves by category.
Table of contents
tea, cats, established relationships with a ton of history behind them that you can really feel in the way characters interact, expanding on the worldbuilding or character or relationship history we don’t see in canon but want to (I’m a sucker for a good backstory). I especially like focusing on characters’ canonical competence—whether that’s watching them acquire their skills or ply them—or geekery. I absolutely love seeing characters geek out on the things they love or see more extrapolation on it.
embarrassment, horror, zombies, vampires, mind control, body-related humor, sickness-related yuck, bodily fluids other than blood, non-canonical infidelity/cheating or other betrayal, graphic violence or gore, unrequested non-canonical relationships. I also have no problem with assassination but do have a problem with murder. I know. Fine line.
foreplay, arousal, biting, nipping, bondage, breathplay, sensory deprivation, bloodplay, weapons play (especially the weapons associated with a particular character), delayed orgasm, overstimulation, some D/s, situational power dynamics type dub-con, phone sex, wall sex, girl on top, very very quiet sex, using powers during sex, consensual somnophilia, voyeurism.
I’ll read but am not a fan of oral, cock rings/cages. Please don’t use stock porn phrases in dirty talk, scat, water sports, sex toys, bodily fluids other than blood (am fine knowing there’s fluids in sex, just don’t want to read any graphic descriptions at all), lifestyle D/s, ageplay, mpreg, consent play, incest, underage, a/b/o, straight up dub-con, the endearment “babe” or “baby” if not canonical.
superhumans, living weapons, competence, soulmates, soulmarks (not names), soulbonds, secret relationships, sharing a bed, domestic fic, holiday fic, arranged marriage, fake marriage, friends/rivals to lovers, AIs and androids and living ships, etc. (no fleshy ships please), accidental relationships, time travel with consequences, fantasy/mythology AUs, missing sense (especially deafness or blindness), animal transformations/shapeshifter, brainwashing recovery/aftermath, amnesia, crossovers/fusions with a focus on worldbuilding or how the new characters change the shape of the world and story, canon-divergent AUs.
I’m okay with coffee shop AUs, school AUs, reincarnation AUs, and historical AUs, but am not really a fan of them as a trope.
alternate gender norms, mind control, zombies, supernatural, daemons, post-apocalyptic, instalove.
any length from drabble to epic, poetry, N+1 fics, mixed media, interactive fiction, traditional narrative, footnotes (especially linked), multi-language fics with translations including binary or canon-specific stuff, any person or tense.
readerfic, scripts, teleplays, podfics, most audio-dependent formats (exception is fanmixes).
I love so many art styles: line art, pen and ink, pencil drawings, colored pencils, paint, watercolor, digital art, etc. I’d say my favorite things in art tend to be the awe-inspiring realistic with vibrant colors and sharp or soft edges, line art / ink / pencil theme pieces that pick up visual symbols of the characters, and cute stylized fluff pieces with romance or humor in mind. I also adore illustrative art that captures a scene or moment of fic or canon. I would absolutely love landscapes or still lifes of any of the scenery or environments or architecture, etc. of any of my fantasy canons.
Please don’t draw any of my general, trope, or kink-related DNWs. Also, emaciated character styling, really red noses.
