randomicicle: (JE - Kame. Papa pic)
[personal profile] randomicicle
Since I plan to participate in several exchanges in the JE fandom, this might make things easier. This list is non-exhaustive and non-binding, this isn’t a guide to what I only like in fic at all times. Also, everyone has their own tastes; I respect that, please respect mine. I’m blatantly coping [livejournal.com profile] ryogrande’s list and format, but if that’s well-done and we have some things in common, no one gets hurt ♥. Also, keep in mind I enjoy subtlety. And gen fics or crack fics. The fact I have some preferences when it comes to kinks doesn't mean I can't enjoy a nice vague romantic R-rated scene full of meta.

On ships and pairings


Kame pairings, basically. I'd take Kame/Anyone-who-is-hot-enough. But these are some I'd like to see and haven't (or are scarce).

→ Kame/Baseball player(s) of your choice (think Going!Sports&News, locker rooms and fanboy!Kame being talked up by some older baseball players)
→ Kame/Kame (yes, either Kame in different times or his drama characters getting it on. Don’t abuse skinny!Kame though, I love Kamefat). Hobo!Kame is deeply appreciated.
→ Kame/Kimura Takuya (or any older sempais)
→ Kame/Pi
→ For KAT-TUN, Kame/NTT. Would rather see some epic Nakame, for example. And any threesome or foursome as long as Kame is in it. Subtlety. Old relationships mixing with new ones. Ex-es being jealous; not-over-yet situations.
→ Akame. Innovative and original (so much has been written!). First otp of this fandom.
→ Kame/Other Johnny: Kame/Nino, Kame/Ryo...
→ Kame/Miura Haruma, Kame/Tamamori Yuuta, Kame/Miura Haruma/Tamamori Yuuta (Gokusen the Movie ♥)
→ Kame/Uchi, Kame/Kusano, Kame/Uchi/Kusano (♥)
→ Kame/Girl. Meaning, Koizumi Kyoko, Kuroki Meisa, Ayase Haruka, Naka Riisa, etc.
→ Anyone that may have any connection to Kame is more than welcomed. Subtlety and hints are more than welcomed.

As for non-Kame pairings, I'm still not sure. But I love gen fics?

Don’t like

→ Whiny Kame, girly Kame. Preferably, I’d avoid redhead/blond Kame unless it’s Ryu. And Hatanaka Kousaku, because the fic tends to center on him eating instead of him being an obsessive stalkerish hyper boxer. Also, I don’t like Kousaku/Kyouhei.
→ I really.. have no restrictions when it comes to fic if the narrative is good enough.

General situations

Realism. I like to read about things that could actually happen, situations and characterizations that make me relate to the characters or at least make sense out of it. This includes the real-life universe where they are Johnnys and their respective ages with their publicized relationships. Includes snapshots, slice-of-life, domesticity. And tons of present/future fic. I also enjoy dark fic with psychological disorders, alarming obsessions, evil habits and stalkerish relationships if the author manages to make it work. I enjoy serious issues being tackled, characters acting like someone would in real life.
First times. The first kiss, first time they have sex, first time they acknowledge they have feelings for each other. The hook-up is important, especially for longer (or non-PWP) fics.
Established relationships. They're good (though not all the time), but would rather have friends-with-benefits or casual. One-sided is good too. The context of the people's relationship adds a lot, more than a plot. I love mentions of their relationship irl. Little things, details. Would rather read some Kame/Miyao Shuntaro with hints to Miyao spending the night at Kame’s (rumor) than Akame for the sake of Akame.
Single POV. Not knowing what the other character is thinking intrigues me, gives more of a realistic flavor to it. Especially if the main character makes presumptions and ends up being wrong.
Friendship. Whether it's already established in canon or developed in your story, I love seeing their friendly support for each other and how they know each other so well. This leads to Gen fic, which I'm addicted to as long as it involves tons of RL facts, rumors or common fandom conceptions and subtext,
Ambiguity. Open endings, subtext and underlying concepts that indicate that there may be something more between two friends, leaving me to my own devices as to what happens behind the scenes or after the story ends. Gen fics charged with this are fully appreciated.
Fandom Adds and RL facts. I cannot even begin to list them all; basically if it was ever on [livejournal.com profile] uwasako's or [livejournal.com profile] journalist_anon's journals, mentioned in a meme, or a common conception, I will flail with it. Something that happened or you saw in fancams, etc. A description of something you’ve noticed in a photo or video of them that is a special feature, such as the shape of their nose or the way their lips curve.
Intergroup Unity. Not necessarily all of them though, but they all grew up together and have past history in common. Past interactions, current liaisons, groups inside groups. Childhood friendships or quarrels or preferences on who to hang out with.
Member ai. I like to see either their current dynamics or past struggles to get where they are. The hard work, disagreements, contrast in personality, etc. Especially KAT-TUN, they're so interesting when it comes to this and the core of why I like them so much.
AU. If I read it, and I like it and write it too, I’ll go for weirder settings. High school AUs are overused, but a good one will keep me stuck to my screen. I’d prefer something more extreme or creative; make Junno an alien, give me some astronaut bromance, make Nakamaru the president and the rest of KAT-TUN his right-hand men. I don’t know.
Angst. I really like angst, or those romantic fics where the mood is more somber than extremely fluffy. Or real angst, where my heart breaks and I cry for them (because whatever happens is totally possible). Like keeping things inside because they live their lives in the spotlight and can't chance getting caught. Or struggling against some situation they can't get out of. Or simply pinning for someone they can't get.
Witty Dialogue. Snark, banter, giving honest and/or unsolicited advice. Junno's puns, Jin being selfish and obnoxious, Kame being a diva, Koki hiding Maru’s favorite argyle sweater. KAT-TUN being KAT-TUN.
Strong, Independent characters. No whiny, no teary, no overly submissive or weak/passive characters. I don’t like overly emotional men, girliness or otherwise ridiculous characterization.

Sexual situations

**Everything here is just a list of what I could read. And obviously, would like, if it's well-done. If the story calls for a very subtle three-line hinted sex scene, then that'll do. If it's a PWP turned to a 5k epic, then I'm fine with it. Also, for the more specific or hardcore kinks/preferences, I'd rather it stays on one or two.


Mood. Desperate, needy, graphic and rough. Or extremely controlled. Rather keep it darker than lighter sometimes. Unless it’s a fluffy/romantic fic and the smut calls for it. It really depends on the story; sometimes more subtle, sometimes vaguely hinted, sometimes explicit or graphic. The smut either adds up to the story or it's a PWP. Love it when the authors knows which one is better and managed not to break the flow of the story with random explicit sex in the middle of a srsbsns story.
Reactions. I'm also more interested in people's reactions and emotional turmoil than in all the gory little details of what they're doing (doesn’t mean I don’t like explicit): loving it, wanting more, whimpering, fisting sheets or clawing at whatever they're laying on, pillow biting, maybe a tiny hint of shame that they enjoy something. Asking for more without actually saying it.
Age gaps. Love the narrator mentioning one of them is older if he is (extra points if the bottom is the oldest).
Emphasis. Fierce kissing, exploring, biting lips, sucking necks, licking and teasing the outer part of the ear, hairlines, collarbones, the abdomen right above the waist, inner thighs. Body worship (angles, contours, softness), smells, temperature. Emphasis on fingers or hands and (facial/body) hair.
Place. Flexibility/bendiness. Innovative positions and places basically if there’s description of how uncomfortable it is. Sex everywhere but the bed. Against-the-wall sex is a fav. Followed by bending the bottom over a desk/table/counter and/or making them ask for it.
Safe sex practices (stretching, lube, condom, etc.). If it’s very subtle, I don’t mind it not being explicit on the smut. But if you’re going for hardcore explicit smut, then bareback isn’t my cup of tea.
Talk. Snark, mocking others, back-talk, dirty talk. Awkward attempts at expressing feelings. Double entendres. Witty dialogue.
Timing. Build up of it for serious lengths of time with considerable amounts of pay-off. Physical Seduction. Coercion.
→ Kinks. Breathplay, gunplay, autagonistophilia (sexual liking for being on stage or on camera), rain, non-con fantasies, dub-con (fantasy or not), exhibitionism/public sex, dacryphilia (but it has to be well-done), frotting, cross-dressing (willing or unwilling), restrains/light BDSM, voyeurism, mpreg, facials, mirrors, control removal, hair play/pulling, double penetration (realistic), orgasm denial, surprise threesomes, sluttiness (esp. from Kame), claiming, UST, I-won't-admit-I-want-it-but-I-do, ties and suits, sex with clothes still on, sense deprivation (blindfolds, earplugs, gags), struggling ukes (not whiny or teary), fondling with clothes on, relief tears, biting and clawing, mind games, gagging, restricting movement, drug-induced sensitivity.
→ Others. Like handjobs and blowjobs, but I need some intercourse. Masturbation (especially when caught instead of being asked to). Lap dances, subtle sluttiness. Rough sex. Angry sex. Second rounds (or blowjobs followed by intercourse and handjobs). Jealousy manifested through physical roughness or possessiveness (only in non-established relationships). Coaxing words and abrupt orders. Molestation while being asleep (♥). Toppy bottoms. Morning after scene (if they spend the night).

Don’t like

Kinks. Bashing. Death. Scat, golden showers. Foodplay. Body piercings & tattoos (especially belly piercings. I know they have them, but don’t want them mentioned). Hurting without both parties enjoying it. Bloodplay/guro. Spanking. Extreme BDSM (like leather outfits or master/pet). Emotional crying during sex (some tears because of pain are fine).
Realism. Sex without lube (or, in any case, without mentioning how painful and a fail that should be). Ukes not feeling any pain at all while stretching/penetration - no need to writhe in pain, but it's not totally painless.
Obnoxious pet names, phrases or words. Like "Sexy Osaka Man", “member ai” (the literal phrase, refrain from using too many Japanese words). Also avoid “uke”, “seme” and “vagina”. And obnoxious ways to call their privates (like eggplant, ide)
Smut with no substance. Plot isn't absolutely necessary (if it's a PWP, for example), but I like to feel that it makes sense for these people to be having sex in this way.

I know. I've been re-reading fics for a long time now. Yours too. And "I believe you liar" by [livejournal.com profile] soundczech is on the top xD

ps.- I think that I got to this entry through twitter.-

You're right, I forgot to take the twitter feed out. I was wondering why people suddenly talked to me about it *laughs*.

Out of [livejournal.com profile] soundczech's fics, my favs are Baby got back. And Seachange, every single sentence in that fic is a gem. The last fics I reread were [livejournal.com profile] cease11's Untitled HayaRyu and [livejournal.com profile] shontos_garden's Available light. I felt like reading [livejournal.com profile] sollasollew11's No place for make believe, but had no time to get to it.

I've read several others, but you know when there's a good book you keep on your bedside table and then those books you buy at the airport, read on the plane, enjoy them but will probably forget about them? I've found tons of airport fics (some really good ones), but not bedside ones lately. Those four are on my bedside table though ♥. Overrated authors have misled me on my goodfic quest too *laughs*.

I figured that might have happened to you :P

We have the same favourites ♥, except that No place for make believe is amazing but I din't like the end :/ and when I don't like the end of something (movies, books, fics, etc) it rarely is in my favourites.
And, well, I'd put In his care by [livejournal.com profile] blue_orbs because old and bad habits die hard *laughs* (I swear I've tried to stop reading that fic but my mind can't get enough of it; besides, it's a classic xD) and Engrossing movements by [livejournal.com profile] prologuesized because I fucking love that fic ♥

Yeah, I know, I had HP4 and Robinson Crusoe beside my bed for years. And I never get tired of them ♥, but surprisingly enough, I've found some bedside fics recently and a lot of airport fics too, that I read only because I don't like to leave a book, or in this case, a fic, half read. Maybe because I've found some fic recs and I guess some of them turned to be good and not crappy (fortunately).-

Really? I actually loved the end. It leaves a very nice open happy possibility ♥. Engrossing movements is probably my favorite one from her, it's very pretty ♥. And talking about overrated authors..

I wish I'd find some bedside fics, but haven't. I've found pretty good airport fics though. Don't have the time to search though.

Yeah, I don't know. I think that too. Is just that. I felt that was rushed? (The end I mean :P)
Hahahaha, I know xD, but as I said old and bad habits die hard :P

I wish I could rec you something, but I have the idea that you have probably read everything I could recommend you xD

There are good authors that don't ad outside their own fic comms. I've been reading those lately, but I still don't have much time.
