Dear Creator - 2017 Losers Ante-up Fanworks Exchange

Hi -

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted on DW!

Anyway -

Dear Creator,

I love the Losers! I like both the movie and the comic, so taking from either source would be fine. I am especially fond of fix-its for the ending of the comic.

I like anything about the team, but my favorites are Jensen and Cougar. I definitely ship it. Roque makes me sad, so things set before his betrayal, or things that re-frame it so that it's not a betrayal are also very welcome. Redeemed Roque is my favorite Roque.

I like AU's just fine, but I'm less fond of supernatural ones (they're werewolves, they're shifters, etc). I don't HATE them, they just aren't my favorite. I'm also really over a/b/o - kind of got my fill a few years ago.

Crossovers are OK, but not my favorite. They're better if they're fandoms I'm familiar with - my favorite fandoms are Marvel (MCU or comics), Stargate Atlantis, NCIS, Supernatural. I kind of like crossovers that use other characters that the actors in The Losers have played. In that vein, I'm more familiar with Chris Evans's, Idris Elba's, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's body of work. (Well, I know Pacific Rim).

Any rating is fine. Pretty open if you want to do explicit, especially explicit slash. I'm more than fine with anything except watersports and scat. Again, a/b/o is not my jam.

OK - what's up with "feels?"

Hi -

I'm getting involved in a new-to-me fandom and I've noticed something that is hitting me right in the grammar and spelling squick zone.

I'm not going to say it's universal, but it's certainly pervasive, that members of this fandom seem prone to using the word "feels" instead of the word "feelings" - not in fic (thank you fic Gods!), but all over posts and summaries.

What is UP with that? WHERE did it come from? And WHY?

Nails on a chalkboard, flist, NAILS on a CHALKBOARD.

Author: heeroluva
Reader: cookiemom6067
Fandom: Star Trek
Rating: PG
Pairing: Pre-slash Kirk/McCoy
Length: 18:05
Tactile Rules of Engagement
Download link: Sendspace

Summary: Kirk is thought of as a tactile person, but it's really that he learned in childhood how to use touch/proximity to intimidate or charm others into doing what he wanted. McCoy has a habit of giving him absent little signs of affection - a knee pressed up against his at dinner, an arm slung over his shoulders on the way home from a bar, a hand stroking his hair when he's sick. It makes him suspicious and he finally asks McCoy what the hell he wants with all this touching.

One Million Moms-How So Stupid?

Quoting Washington Post article about Green Lantern's coming out:

"The One Million Moms website states: "Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying. 'I want a boyfriend or husband like the X-men?"

I really don't think it's all that new a concept that little gay boys want that. So yeah, million idiots. I CAN IMAGINE THAT.

This gives me a fandom-specific giggle

From Slate this morning:

The new Gallup poll numbers, which represent the five-day average of its daily surveys, show both Santorum and Gingrich knotted at 20 percent each.

In view of the incredible popularity of "knotting" fics in SPN fandom right now, this gave me an entirely fandom-specific giggle this morning. I wish they'd go knot each other and leave the rest of us alone...

Not that Mr. "Frothy Mix" is ever inclined to leave anyone alone - particularly women and LGBT people.
