I've decided to use this as an opportunity to write something I might not write otherwise. I hope this works out. :)

> LiveJournal: [livejournal.com profile] lantean_breeze
> E-mail: ((given to moderator))

> Things I'd like: I'd like a nice story featuring Teyla, John, Ronon, and the Wraith somehow. Their amount of involvement is of course up to you; it can be a little or fairly significant, but I'd rather that it not outshine Teyla, Ronon, and John.  You can include other characters (NOT Todd, although I like him, but he can be referenced) if you like, so long as their time in the story is very limited. I mainly just want some kind of adventure or nice quiet story that involves just these three, but I love everybody. ;) You can include sexuality (NO Kanaan please, although I like him), but please be very tasteful about it, make it meaningful, and do not let it BE the story. That would be very welcome from me. :)

A good example of something that could work for me, or a prompt if you will, is if Teyla and Ronon were an item in the past, but now she's moved on to John and Ronon has to deal with that and still be friends with and work with her and John. Some flashbacks of Teyla and Ronon interacting as a couple intimately and regularly could be worked in the story through memories or something like that. Then you could write some kind of scene where John and Teyla have some romantic time together before and/or after the main adventure/encounter with the Wraith. An NC-17 rating will not do because I do not like raunch or gore. I prefer PG-13 and rated R stories mostly, and that's what I like to write. For a sample of my writing, if you are interested, I am also at ff.net under lanteanbreeze (no underscore). I should have another story up in a few weeks. This one will be lengthy for me (about 8 chapters).

> So, to summarize this, I would like:

> 1. Teyla, John, and Ronon story or adventure.
> 2. Involve the Wraith somehow, except Todd.
> 3. Some romance/love is nice and desired (see my prompt) but it can't BE the story.
> 4. Do your best, and I'll be happy. I promise. :)

> Things I wouldn't like: If sexuality is involved, I prefer John/Teyla and don't want to see a threesome with Ronon, but a little bit of Teyla/Ronon (as long as it's not more than John/Teyla and doesn't make Teyla look slutty) is ok. I don't want Teyla, Ronon, or John seriously injured/sick or dying. No character bashing please.  I don't want crack fics or anything silly, but a few laughs are ok. I don't want John or Ronon with anyone else but Teyla if you pair them with someone. I don't want Teyla in the background. She needs to have a major role in this story (She's my favorite). And no AU or crossover stories, please.  I really would like the story to focus on the three of them. 

> To summarize this, I don't want:

> 1. Teyla in the background. She needs to play a major role.
> 2. John or Ronon with anyone but Teyla in a love/sexual way, and Teyla can't be slutty or look bad.
> 3. AU/Silly/Crack/Crossover/Kid stories. Something serious with perhaps a few laughs is nice. No bashing.
> 4. No gore/raunch/threesomes or orgies (NC-17).

> What I can do: I can write for just about any character, I think. Keller and Elizabeth for this might be a challenge, though. I don't mind writing some sexuality so long as it's not the basis of the story, and I don't do threesomes or orgies. I like meaningful one-on-one relationships. I am willing to write for gay and straight pairings. Although Teyla is my favorite character, I can write for someone else as the main focus. I can do playful or serious stories or small adventures.

> What I can't do: I don't do threesomes or orgies, and I don't do NC-17 stories (at least not for this challenge). Since I have a het preference of John/Teyla, please do not ask me to write John with another woman. That ain't happenin'. I don't have a gay preference, so that's no big deal to me, but I prefer het. I don't know what fandoms we might have in common outside of this one, so I'm going to say no to writing crossovers. I don't write gory stories. I try to keep bloodshed and serious injuries to a realistic minimum. I can't write for a list of a thousand preferences. Please keep your request to 2-5 things you really want. I do more with less. If you give me a list of 50 things you really want, I'll spend my time trying to make that list manageable and the story I write will suffer for it. I don't think you want that, and neither do I. Getting a prompt or prompts would be helpful. If you write fan fiction, I'll try to read a story or two of yours to get a feel for you, or if you have an ff.net account I might check out your favorites to see what you like. I'm interested in expanding my horizons a little, and I figured this challenge (and having a deadline) might be a good way to do that. So, I'd like this to be nice for the both of us.

> Pinch hitter?: Unfortunately, no. I've got waaaaay too much going on as it is, lol.

[personal profile] busaikko
LiveJournal: busaikko
E-mail: busaikkobaby (a) yahoodot com
Things I'd like:
Gen: Explorations of Pegasus or Wraith cultures, languages, and traditions, and relations between Atlantis and Pegasus seen from non-Earth perspectives. Tell me about the Asgard in Pegasus, or Chaya (whatever happened to her?), or the daily life of Marie the nurse (I love her)!
Relationships: I like John: John/Parrish, John/Woolsey, John/Ronon, John/Cam, female!Sheppard/Carter, John/Rodney, John/Vala, John/Bill Lee ♥ ; John/Teyla/Kanaan, John/Cam Mitchell/Vala, John/Rodney/Jennifer (the OT3 of my heart); OT4.
Things I like: Creative kink with negotiation, trying new things, pushing limits. I love characters who are asexual, queer, poly, trans, genderqueer, or disabled and how they belong in the SG universe and in their relationships. Complicated relationships, where the characters behave like adults. AUs, especially in canon alternate realities: Road Less Taken, Continuum, Tao of Rodney, Daedalus Variations, Vegas. Apocafic is always good. Conversion!John, repli!John, and clones always have potential. Basically, I love ideas: if there's a trope you've always wanted to subvert, go for it! Format-wise, I love fic, art, vids, podfic, pretty much everything.
Things I wouldn't like: I am not really fond of Carson or Elizabeth. I don't like OTT woobification or miraculous recoveries (go ahead and permanently damage or kill the characters; I enjoy having my heart broken). No vampires, elves, zombies, were-anything, or other supernatural; no soulbonding. No crossovers with other TV shows or films (if your muse is demanding it, ask me first? A lot of popular stuff I have not seen). Not fond of fanon cliches (lemon chicken shunning, prime not prime). No character or kink bashing.
What I can do: Fic. Gen, slash, femslash, het (prefer McKeller or John/someone), ratings from G to NC17. I have seen all of SGA, most of SG1, and all of SGU. I can write kinkfic, rare pairs, mpreg, fpreg (have never written f/fpreg but am willing!), kidfic, dubcon, noncon, kink, partner betrayal, character death, whump, underage (teen AUs, etc.) -- it's all good, if you love it I'll write it.
What I can't do: No political or mystery thrillers or military-themed fic, please (outside areas of my expertise). No character or kink bashing. I am not strong or experienced at writing Carson, Lorne, or Elizabeth. No crossovers outside of SG. I'm not into holidays, so I'm probably not the best bet for Christmas-themed fic.
Pinch hitter?: Yes, possible, prefer post-deadline (after exams for me)

Things I'd like: A fic in which Elizabeth Weir is smart and/or awesome and/or the hero of the day in the Pegasus Galaxy. Gen is fine/my preference, if you want to write a pairing that's fine with me too. (Is this too short?) (If you want to fix-it the whole 'hanging out in space' thing, that'd work for me, too. Canon-divergence is good, if that works for you. (I only just joined the fandom so I don't have an OTP yet, but if you want to write romance/a relationship, make it Sheppard/Weir or Weir/Jackson?)

Things I wouldn't like: A complete AU, non-con, BDMS, NC-17. Other people having relationships in various combinations is fine with me. No sad endings please.

What I can do: I'm going to say GEN please, or Weir/Sheppard or Weir/Jackson for now, as I am new here and still finding my feet - these I know I can do, getting out of my comfort zone more will have to wait until next year. :-)

What I can't do: NC-17, BDSM, non-con, evil Elizabeth.

Pinch hitter?: err, depends on when I get my fic finished etc so ... maybe?

Things I'd Like: I like a lot of things and I'm pretty easy to please, but to help inspire my secret santa, here are some of my favorites: episodic fic, team!fic, canon-compliant or canon-divergent fic (as opposed to a total AU or AR, although in-canon AUs/ARs like Vegas!verse are good), hurt/comfort, unexplored backstory, character development, crack!fic, crack-y ideas that somehow morph into something more serious, asexual characters, gender-bending or gender-swap, poly, OT3/OT4, ensemble fic where multiple characters have a hand in the overall story, kink, and porn! \o/ I also love mpreg, but I like reactions to it to be realistic and congruent with the characters' personalities, etc. Mostly prefer slash (followed by het followed by femslash followed by gen). I like characters being smart and kicking ass; I like agency and internal conflict and subtle humor/plot twists. Some of my favorite episodes are Sateda, Childhood's End, The Siege II, The Last Man, The Brotherhood, Vegas, Tabula Rasa, and Conversion.

I love every character on the Expedition, so you can't go wrong there. I also love Keras, Todd, and sometimes Michael. And Allina! :D I'd love to see Ford leading an off-world team, or Weir going on a mission in a capacity other than leader, or any kind of Wraith history or mythology or culture; also, Jonas in Atlantis, anything that explores Sheppard's connection to the Wraith, or cultural extrapolations based on canon (what do we not know about Sateda, Athos, Keras' world, et cetera?).

For pairings, I mostly read John/Rodney and rare pairs such as John/Keras, Rodney/Aiden, and Lorne/Zelenka (not as rare as the others, but still a smaller pairing). Some other rare pairings I'd like to see: Teyla/Jonas, Ronon/Vala, Ford/Keller, Weir/Kavanagh, Laura Cadman/Katie Brown, and/or any combination of Lorne/Jonas/Kavanagh/Zelenka/Ronon. For canon pairings, I like Teyla/Kanaan and Ronon/Amelia.

Things I Do Not Want: John Sheppard, to me, knows what his feelings are, he just doesn't communicate them very well, so please don't make him emotionally clueless if you write his POV. Nothing supernatural, such as werewolves or vampires. No Sheppard/Weir, no McKay/Keller except as background or past relationship (or on the way to being past), although I do enjoy John/Rodney/Jennifer. No character or kink bashing. As for kinks, I don't want watersports, emetophilia, or scat play. I don't like AMTDI when played for humor; I'm not into soulbonding. No gender-swap for the purposes of "correcting" a same-sex pairing.

Things I Can Do: Pretty much anything. I'm better at angst with a smattering of fluff, rather than complete fluff. Best at episodic fics, angst & hurt/comfort, and action; better at slash but also write het, fem and gen. I love culture-building, character study, and rare pairs, and I enjoy doing experimental things like poetry.

Things I Can't Do: I don't write Sheppard/Weir, and I don't write McKay/Keller except as background or past relationship. Pairings-wise, that's mostly it. I'm not a fan of total AUs/ARs, nor do I care much for werewolves/vampires/etc. I don't character bash. I don't write watersports, emetophilia, or scat play; I'm iffy on AMTDI (if I write it, I don't play it for laughs).

Pinch-hit? Perhaps. We'll see what happens!

Things I'd like I am a HUGE hurt/comfort junkie! And I really like the hurting guy to be Evan Lorne. Just whump the crap out of him, I'm happy. :) He can be comforted by a whole lot of people, slash or het, it's all good. I'm a particular fan of rare pairings too, so if you want to put him with Jennifer Keller or Jonas Quinn, it would totally make my season!
Things I wouldn't like Having said that however, I really don't want Lorne/Zelinka or Lorne/Becket. Both Carson and Radek are great characters, just not paired with my guy. I'm not a huge fan of Porne, either, unless Parrish is a total BAMF.
Things I'll write I can and will write pretty much anything and I'm pretty hard to squick. I love to write H/c, and all of my stories have that in them. I love first-time fic too and I totally love to write rare pairings. However I just can't write Zelinka or Becket in a romantic relationship. I just don't feel it.
Things I won't write. Zelinka and/or Becket paired with anyone. Non-con, unless it's implied in the background as part of the H/c. Gen because romance always apears in my stories. Always.
Pinch hit I'm never quick enough on the draw to get to those posts!

Things I'd like: My OTP is Chuck/Woolsey, but if you're iffy on Woolsey, don't do it :)  I'm also super happy with John/Rodney, John/Cam, John/Sam, Rodney/Carson, and any secondary pairings you can think to throw in there (Parrish/Lorne, Radek/anybody, Rodney/Jennifer, Teyla/Ronon, Ronon/Elizabeth... et al.  I love Beckett: you could throw him in anywhere and I'd be happy).  I'd like a 'ship in the fic, but that doesn't have to be the primary focus.  Any rating is cool - porn is fun, but not when it's just for the sake of porn.  SG1 crossovers are awesome.  Actually, as I think about it, I'd REALLY like John/Sam or John/Cam.  During or after her year in Atlantis, either is fine, or any "history" for the /Cam.  AUs are awesome, so are really well developed "canon" fics.  

Things I wouldn't like: No wraith pairings.  Preferably no femslash as the primary pairing (secondary is fine), and no OT3s, 4s, or moresomes.

What I can do: I can write anything in the traditional SGA world - just about any pairing or rating.  I'm lousy at AUs, so while I'm happy to do slight alterations (give me one change in the timeline and I can totally build from there), I can't create a world from scratch.  I do love to experiment with writing different kinks, so feel free to send that my way.  Kid!fic and mPreg aren't deterrents for me.

What I can't do:  I can't really promise crossovers outside of the SG fandom because I don't watch enough TV (Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek (all), and Warehouse 13 are my only concessions).   Already mentioned that I can't do true AUs.  I'd rather not write any pairings with Wraith, although I will if y'all are desperate.

Pinch hitter?: I'm jobless right now.  Depends on if I've found work in December.  In theory?  Absolutely.

Things I'd like: I'd love something John-centric set after EatG. I also have a huge weakness for first times and new discoveries. I like angst as long as there's a reasonable happy (or at least hopeful) ending. If you want to go AU, I'd prefer something set in the Vegas universe.

When it comes to shipping I'm open to most John pairings, although this year I'd be particularly interested in John/Vala, post-EatG John/Nancy, John/Ronon/Teyla or even some psychologically interesting John/Caldwell. If that's too difficult, pairing him up with Ronon is always a safe bet with me. I should also mention that while I adore John (and how!), I'd prefer it if there wasn't a one-sided focus on his feelings and needs. He should have something to offer his partner too. The same obviously goes for friendship stories.

When it comes to gen, I'd enjoy a story about John reconnecting with Dave Sheppard, or just something about the Sheppard family in general. Basically, if it's canon-compliant Sheppard backstory, I'm interested (extrapolating from what we know from canon is fantastic, making shit up because you prefer your own personal canon is not).

Things I wouldn't like: Carson, Elizabeth or Rodney as major characters, Rodney and Carson background pairings (the same goes for Lorne/Parrish, Lorne/Zelenka and Markham/Stackhouse), character bashing, whump for the sake of whump, weepiness, unhappy endings, slacker/surfer dude John, 100%gay!John, caveman!Ronon, yenta!Teyla, porn for the sake of porn, crack (but since this is Stargate we're talking about, there's admittedly a lot of leeway here), humiliation, people acting like idiots for the sake of cheap angst (that means no breakups caused by stupid misunderstandings or someone being asked out as a dare and then finding out or anything else like that).

What I can do: Gen, het, slash, femslash, fluff, angst, humor, kink, crack, AUs, tropes (I'm *awesome* with tropes) crossovers (when I know the source) - I'm pretty versatile. I'm most comfortable writing John, Ronon and Teyla, but I really don't mind stretching my writing muscles a little.

What I can't do: I'd really rather not write anything Rodney, Carson, Radek or Elizabeth centric, although I can write a passable Rodney in a pinch. SG1 crossovers involving the original SG1 would be tricky since I've only watched a handful of episodes pre-season 9.

Pinch hitter?: Yes.

Things I'd like: John/Teyla, epic action/adventure with relationship, Teyla-as-hero, a story where Teyla is the central character and John happens to be the "girl" she gets along the way to solving the problem and saving the galaxy. Failing John/Teyla, I would also love and adore Teyla-centric gen, Teyla-centric friendship, Teyla-centric pairings (with the exception marked below), and/or female characters (at least Teyla) saving the day and kicking physical or metaphorical ass along the way. Action, drama, humour, romance, whatever! I always hang out for an epic action/adventure relationship fic, but y'know, funny and fluffy works, too!

Things I wouldn't like: Sheppard/Weir, Sheppard/McKay, Teyla/Ronon.
What I can do: Gen. Any pairing but the Do Not Wants above. I'm better with Teyla, the team, and the female characters, but can write most characters with some degree of success.
What I can't do: Pairings listed above.
Pinch hitter?: Probably not unless you have someone who wants John/Teyla or Teyla.

Things I'd like: Pairings I like are John Sheppard/Cameron Mitchell, Alison Porter/Laura Cadman, Alison Porter/Clone!Jon O'Neill, and David Parrish/Alison Porter. Characters I like are Cameron Mitchell, Alison Porter, Clone!Jon O'Neill, John Sheppard, Laura Cadman and Evan Lorne. I think I want something with action, romance and maybe a feeling of forbidden? Or maybe a look at what makes these people, these people? I love AUs (although it doesn't have to be) and I love hidden talents coming out.
Things I wouldn't like: No mentions of rape or non-con, please.
What I can do: I can do almost anything. AU and death!fic is a specialty.
What I can't do: I can not, in any sense, do rape/non-con on request. Please don't ask me to do this.

Things I'd like: A few things I'd like this year, in no particular order:

- Anything at all about Jeannie. Seriously, anything. Gen, het, femslash, threesomes, moresomes, tentacles, knock yourself out. All I ask is that, if you go for something other than Jeannie/Kaleb, she not be deliberately cheating on him (death, divorce, never existed, extenuating circumstances, and open relationships are all fine). Er, and just in case someone takes "anything" as a challenge, no Jeannie/Madison, please.

- John/Jennifer/Rodney. They are the SGA OT3 of my heart, and I will always want more fic for them. I'd really prefer that, if you choose to write them, they end up together longterm.

- Gen! Especially gen focusing on the Team, but something focused on John, Teyla, Ronon, Jennifer, Aiden, or Rodney would be loved.

- Jennifer/Aiden. This is a complete and total longshot, but I love the idea of them together.

- Teyla/Elizabeth. They make me happy.

Some general things I like in fic are plot, team, family, friendship, love, banter, domesticity, Pegasus cultures, action, adventure, explosions, guns, war, people who kick ass and take names, people who are damn good at their jobs, "science", space, science fiction, and SG-1 crossovers. In shipfic, I also really enjoy kink, especially bdsm and public sex, but it's definitely not necessary.

I'd also really prefer a hopeful ending. It doesn't have to be a happy ending, and you can drag them through hell to get there, I'd just like to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Things I wouldn't like: Character bashing or SGC bashing, amnesia, non-science fiction AUs, Omegaverse, a heavy emphasis on Carson, background Jack/Daniel or Lorne/Parrish, woobie!Rodney, M/f kink (F/m is fine).

What I can do: Gen, female characters, John/Rodney, SG-1 crossovers. If you need an esoteric het or femslash pairing covered, I could probably do it, but it'd be safer to drop me a line and doublecheck.

What I can't do: Porn, graphic torture/whump, heavy angst, Carson fic, John/Cam, John/Elizabeth, SGU crossovers. I don't think I could do Lorne or Woolsey justice.

Pinch hitter?: Possibly

Things I'd like: Team gen is pretty much my favorite thing ever, but I also enjoy team OT4, John/Rodney, John/Teyla, John/Ronon, Teyla/Jennifer, Teyla/Sam, Jennifer/Alicia Vega, and Jennifer/Sam. I like stories with happy endings, fluffy domesticness, and action/adventure. Mild hurt.comfort is fun, as are stories involving imprisonment, daring rescues and cunning plans. I like for the Pegasus galaxy to seem like a real place with real people in it, and I like stories that have pairings to not completely ignore all the other characters but the pairing couple.

Things I wouldn't like: No deathfics, kidfics (unless it's canon kids like Madison and Torren), or partner betrayal please. Some angst is okay but an overload of it makes me a sad panda. I don't really want fics that have Atlantis stuck permanently on Earth.

What I can do: Anything, as long as it involves the main characters of the show (not peripheral characters such as Chuck or Stackhouse).

What I can't do: I'd rather not write stories centered entirely on secondary characters, or from the POV of the Wraith, or any pairing involving Woolsey.

Pinch hitter?: No, sorry. I'm terrible with deadlines.

Things I'd like: I'd love a story featuring John/Teyla, but not necessarily a ship fic in itself. I like stories where the focus isn't necessarily the "romance" or getting together but one where you see their relationship evolve organically through what they're doing together (and with other people): whether that be solving a case, or doing quieter everyday activities on Atlantis. If you've read the Legacy series, The Lost is an excellent example of this: John and Teyla are involved in a mission together, and there's lots of interaction and subtext, but the focus is on solving a different primary goal, one that is not romantic in nature. Their relationship features mainly because of how John and Teyla must work together to carry out this goal. (I adore the scenes in the cave, in the infirmary and then Teyla's room (squee!), and the ending scene on the pier. Awww. So much win!)

My main rule of thumb is to play to your strengths as a writer. Be creative in using your particular expertise as a springboard, and write the genre you like. I'm flexible! For an idea of the range of stories I enjoy: I like plotty team adventure fic, but I also like vignettes centered around a particular theme. I like epic action, but I also like non-flashy slice-of-life. For your sanity, I suggest choosing one or two particular angles, and sticking to those, hehe. :) The main "requirement" is for the story to have a narrative pulse. I like the characters being active and assertive in taking charge of their circumstances, rather than being passive. Everything else is really execution. If you execute really well, go for whatever strikes your fancy! I really honestly mean this; follow your brilliance. Don't let my suggestions confine you. Besides the basics and "what I don't like," everything is up for grabs.

Optional food for thought: I love having a sense of place and setting. A few choice details is all you need. As for character aspects, I like smart John a whole lot, and I love kickbutt Teyla (whether that's in negotiation or in battle). I really enjoy humorous, light John, but if you travel the way of angst (which I deal in too), then I find his sense of personal responsibility striking. He truly cares for the well-being of his team, and he'll go through the fire to get them back, but it's also good to remind John that he doesn't have to bear the weight of the world alone. I see Teyla as a rock; I love her calm steadiness and her ability to see what people really mean and are not saying. She also has this wry humor that's so hard to capture, but if you do, you are beyond awesome. If you're able to incorporate other characters, I love team and unlikely friendships. I adore John and Ronon friendship. Oh, you bet Ronon knows, and he has a nifty way of being wise when the team needs it. Also: if all plot bunnies fail you, music is always win.

Things I wouldn't like: My main nitpick is heavy exposition or too much telling; I like writers who respect the readers' intelligence. I dislike anything that throws a reader out of the narrative: glaringly off details, too much reflection with no action (don't have John stand around for five paragraphs thinking about his emotions and this or that. Get him out of his head and have him interact with the world around him, or with other characters), and plot holes (sadly, my suspension of disbelief has limits). Too much pining. Out-of-character dialogue. Super crack!fic (slight AU is fine, alt!verse is fine, but less deviation from canon is probably safer). Unhappy endings. Depressing all the way through. Ogling the characters. The characters as less intelligent than they are. Cotton candy fluff. Also: no swearing or sex, please.

What I can do: I am most comfortable with John/Teyla and Teyla-centric gen. My past work is mostly character studies, vignettes, and standalone scenes, but I am currently delving into more plotty, epic territory. If you need me, I can also take a stab at character-centric gen for John or Ronon, and friendship fic. Any time frame in canon, I've seen all five seasons of SGA and read the Legacy series thus far.

What I can't do: John paired with someone besides Teyla. Slash. Whump. Crack!fic. Anything above a PG-13 rating. I'm sure there's more, but these limits cover a lot of ground.

Pinch hitter?: Possibly, but I fear my ambition exceeds my capacity.

Things I'd like:
Rodney/Lorne with lots of snark
Lorne/Teyla kidfic (maybe an AU where Lorne is Torren's dad and not Kanaan?)
Lorne/Parrish with their team on a mission with lots of banter and hilarious incidents like alien!fauns and alien!nymphs,
Woolsey/Caldwell set in or after season 5,
John/Ronon coda to Outcast or really anything with John's family (or Ronon's fellow Satedans)
Lorne/Ladon Radim (yes, I know, again but there's like two fics about them)
season five John/Radek ,
matchmaking any of those above mentioned pairings by the other characters,
an AU where Michael never discovers he's a Wraith, joins Lorne's team, banters with them and marries Teyla y/y? (Come on, it's for Christmas *puppy eyes*)
Crossover with Stargate Universe,
General pairings I like are: Rodney/Carson; John/Ronon, John/Radek, Lorne/Parrish, Lorne/Teyla, Michael/Teyla, Lorne/Rodney, Lorne/Radek, these could also appear as background parings

Things I wouldn't like:
John/Rodney at all eexcept as friends but I don't want any references or hints that they might be a couple, no non-con, graphic sex or kinks please. Also please don't make Sam Carter a central character and no references to SG1 because I've never seen it

What I can do: I'm mostly writing slash like John/Ronon or Lorne/Parrish but I can do het involving Teyla. My specialty are minor and reoccuring characters like Lorne, Parrish, Stackhouse, Ladon, Heightmeyer, Vega etc. Also rareparirings of all colours: you like Halling/Kavanagh or Lorne/Ladon or John/Radek? I'll write them, any setting is fine adventure, drama, time travel, AUs
Femmesslash is no problem either and I can also write SGU characters

What I can't do:McKay/Sheppard, NC-17 stories, m-preg, John/Elizabeth, Ronon/Radek, SG-1 characters as I have never seen it(that includes Sam Carter)

Pinch hitter?: No, sorry

I've posted this awhile ago, but I am posting it again now at the right time.

Things I like: Sheppard/McKay slash, or Weir/McKay het, I pretty much like Rodney with just about anyone, but those two are my top favorites,  mpreg, insecure!Rodney, Protective!John, insecure or protective!Elizabeth, Protective!Rodney, I'd love to read a mcshweir threesome fic where aliens make all three of them do it. Liz and Rodney both end up pregnant with John's kids and he finds out and is extreamly protective of them. I just adore a protective John.
Things I don't like: Sheppard/Weir without a side of McKay, Carter/McKay, crossovers outside of SG-1, evil!John or evil!Rodney but if an alien artifact or drug is affecting them I'll make an acception.

What I can do: Sheppard/McKay, Weir/McKay, Beckett/Weir, anything except the following below

What I can't do: Sheppard/Weir without a side of McKay, slash other than Sheppard/McKay, evil!John, evil!Rodney

Pinch hitter: No.

Things I'd like: To help out and make someone happy by stepping in to write if need be. But if at all possible I'd really love to have a week (or more) in which to do it.

What I can do: Pretty much anything! (With the exceptions of what's listed below.)

What I can't do: I'd really rather not write anything above R, kinks or PWPs. I'd rather not do deathfic, but if for some reason that's what would make the recipient really, really happy I'll pull out my knives and vials of poison. I won't write non- or even dub-con without some mitigating circumstances like drugs, do-it-or-die scenarios or alien possession. I also won't bash any of the characters, and I really wouldn't be happy writing a story where John and Rodney aren't at least good friends (though I can live with one or the other not appearing in the fic, as long as they're not maimed or dead). I could probably do a crossover with SG1, Torchwood and/or maybe even Hawaii 5-0, but to be honest I'd rather not. (But again, if the recipient's heart is set on it I'll do my best.)

Pinch hitter? Yes. :) But I'm pretty sure I'll only have time for one story.

Things I'd like: Gen or het UST Rodney centric whumpfic where he gets badly hurt. I like chest and/or abdominal injuries with lots of blood/broken bones. I also like it where he has to struggle back to the gate with someone or has to be kept alive to wait for help. Woobie Rodney is a plus, but not a requirement. Otherwise the method of whump is up to you: the fic can be based on Atlantis or offworld, can involve scary weather, scary beasties, scary natives etc (or all of them!), as low/high rated as you like
Things I wouldn't like: No slash (inc pining), established non canon pairings, AU/AR, permanent injury, long scenes without Rodney in them, anyone more badly injured than Rodney, sad ending, illness/disease

What I can do: Het UST or gen Rodney centric hurt/comfort. Het Rodney PWP and kink.
What I can't do: Slash, AU/AR, fics focusing on anyone other than Rodney, permanent injury
Pinch hitter?: Only if the request fits my 'what i can do' listing, so unlikely

Things I'd like: I am a John girl, so I have a bias for stories where he is a focus. My primary pairing is John/Rodney, but I can also go for John with: Ronon, Teyla, or Zelenka -- either romantic or friendship. Doesn't need to be explicit, but I do like a sense of the characters caring about each other. I'm also open to an unexpected pairing (slash or het) or friendship story for John, although I'd prefer not to see him paired romantically with: Lorne, Beckett, Weir, Caldwell, Kavanaugh, Kolya, or anyone from SG1 or SGU as I haven't seen those.

Not specific requests but FYI: I love seeing the characters being competent/smart in their professional roles, action/adventure, humor, alien or Ancient hijinks, canon or Earth-based AUs, cyberpunk, SF, robots, and other fun stuff like that. I'm fine with canon or other secondary pairings (so long as John gets someone too!) I like all of Atlantis's leaders. Explorations of Athosian or Satedan culture would also be cool by me.

Things I wouldn't like: Any character bashed/demonized, Rodney characterization where he's insulting/yelling nonstop and making people cry, cheating/partner betrayal, schmoopy/sappy romance. Also, please no permanent major character damage or a totally bleak final outcome, though angst, darkness and doubt are fine. Anything on my "can't do" list.

What I can do: John/Rodney, can also try John/Ronon, or gen or pairings (slash or het) featuring any characters in my "like" listing. I'll give rarepair a shot. Canon or AU. I do write all ratings, but if someone requires a story to be smutty, I'm not sure I can guarantee it.

What I can't do: Non-con, mpreg, heavy whump, bdsm or specific kinks (I don't think I could do it justice), SG-1 or SGU canon.

Pinch hitter?: Probably not, sorry!

Things I'd like: The classic tropes: telepathy, wing!fic, X-made-them-do it, etc.; fluff, h/c, angst with a happy ending. First times. McShep, Carson/Radek, Teyla/Ronon, Jeannie, team!fic, Ronon on the team (i.e., stories set after “Runner”), oblivious and/or pining characters. Matchmaking. Rodney confronted with children. A Zelenka perfectly capable of holding his own against Rodney. Bottom!Rodney. Sex in the Jumper.
Things I wouldn't like: John or Rodney paired with anyone but each other (unless they end up together), no non-con, rape, underage, watersports, scat, mpreg, genderswap.
What I can do: I’m new to the fandom. I’ve written McShep, Radek, Carson, and I’m willing to write Ronon and Teyla. Would prefer no Keller/Rodney. I mainly write slash.
What I can't do: I won’t write John or Rodney with anyone but each other. Prefer not to write het, but I can do it. None of the other things I’ve listed in dislikes.
Pinch hitter?: No. I have too many plot bunnies as it is.

Things I'd like:

the really big stuff: My ideal wish, every year, is a John/Teyla + everyone EPIC STORY OF EPICNESS with an action-adventure focus and a whole lotta shit going down. It would involve a cast of thousands and all those cultures in Pegasus that we've come to love hate love (I did mention EPIC STORY OF EPICNESS, didn't I?). Oh, and Teyla would be the Hero of the story.

the big stuff: However, in the absence of plotbunnies, time, inspiration, Ancient devices capable of producing said fic, and/or any of the above, I'd be happy with a Teyla-centric, a John/Teyla non-romantic, and/or a team-fic with Teyla as major player. (Those categories don't have to exclude each other, either.)

the small stuff: Definitely include the team! I love stories where Ronon is written as though Sateda had a culture of its own before it was destroyed by the Wraith, and stories that have John behave like an adult man who learned to keep himself bottled up all those years and is only just becoming accustomed to allowing himself to believe that people aren't going to drop him for being emotionally screwed up - but still the kind of guy who held out the hand of friendship to the Athosians when everyone else was willing to write them off as 'hunter-gatherer primitives'. I like stories that use Rodney like szechuan pepper: adding a little zing without overdosing.

I like all the Atlantis women and I like them to have agency. I like hints of female friendships where the two women don't understand each other fully or hang in each other's pockets but are still there for each other. I like seeing women who are not traditionally 'feminine' - or who transgress the societal and literary expectations of a 'female character' or 'heroine'. Any additional characters are fine - casts of thousands are great fun when interacting - I like all the characters, but my favourite above and beyond all the others is Teyla.

If you want to write Wraith, I like the version of Wraith society as laid out in the SGA Legacy series by Melissa Scott, Jo Graham, and Amy Griswold: an Elizabethan-style court of Queen and her subject males. And I don't mind Teyla/Kanaan so long as it's in the past - something like "they worked out that they hadn't gotten together before for a reason and agree to co-parent Torren in a civil and civilised manner" works for me.

AUs are fine, action/adventure is fine, hurt/comfort is fine, peril and BDSM (Teyla/John in a D/s relationship - ZOMG) and fluff are fine!

Things I wouldn't like: John/Rodney or John/Elizabeth. Teyla and/or Ronon acting stupid (this includes asking questions about basic things of Earth culture by the end of the series, like "what is a tabloid reporter?") or not knowing what to do in Pegasus when a crisis happens. Fluffy romantic stuff. (On the other hand, guns and weapons and dire danger and tearing each others' clothes off in boltholes = WIN. Nothing says 'love' like defending back-to-back in a tight corner.)

What I can do: I can write Teyla-centric or John/Teyla or OT4 or team. I can write any gen (but I would prefer something that included Teyla), any het (especially Teyla-centric het) except John/Elizabeth, Teyla/Ronon, or Teyla/Kanaan. I can write femmeslash, and will write any slash except John/Rodney. I'm good with female characters as well as the male ones; I can do action/adventure, hurt/comfort, porn, or fluff. Humour is touch-and-go, but I'll do my best.

What I can't do: I've pretty much listed the pairing exclusions above: John/Rodney, Teyla/Ronon, John/Elizabeth, Teyla/Kanaan. And I don't want to write hatefic, character death, or anything that excludes Teyla.

Pinch hitter?: Maybe, if needed.
