I've noticed a few people doing this and thought it looked quite fun, as much as anything else! I hope it might be helpful in the possibility that you were writing something for me, I suppose, but I am really pretty easy to please, so don't feel the need to stress at all.

Favourite Pairings:

  • Harry / Draco is my OTP. ♥

  • Draco / Albus Severus. I have lately become completely obsessed with this pairing. I like an innocent, sweet Albus seduced by a predatory Draco, but I'm also hankering for a more seductive Al who Draco tries and fails to resist. I'd be happiest if Draco tries to resist because he knows he's taking a massive risk giving in to his desires, rather than because of any moral scruples. ;-) I'm really happy if Draco is secretly wanting Harry when he is with Al. Or, if he hates or is indifferent to Harry, but sees something in Albus, that's fine too. Poor Harry, I love it when he's scandalised by this pairing.

  • Harry / Scorpius. I like this best when Harry is horrified and unwilling, but does it anyway. Happy if he is reminded of a young Draco, but this isn't required.

  • Albus / Scorpius can be great, especially with a bit of edge to it. For instance, I like it if Scorpius is rather excitingly immoral, or manipulating Al, or seducing him to shock their parents, rather than it being perfect true love.

General likes:

  • Humour

  • Dialogue and banter

  • Getting-together fics

  • PWP

  • UST

  • 6th to 8th year Hogwarts

  • Within a few years of the war

  • Older, with unusual professions

  • Clubbing

  • Epilogue compliant if there is no infidelity, or if the infidelity is non-angsty

  • Pining

  • Obliviousness and denial

  • Veritaserum

  • Polyjuice

  • Mirror of Erised. Even better if these things are used to reveal the person's true feelings.

  • I love Ron and Hermione, together or separately. I adore Horrified!Ron if it's humorous. Or surprise me and write Wise!Accepting!Ron ;-)

  • I love Luna, Lupin, Snape, The Malfoys, Slytherins being horrifying or humorous, McGonagall, Neville, and Teddy.

Things I'm not too keen on:

  • infidelity if it's miserable

  • Mpreg doesn't usually grab me, although I've got no strong objections

  • Creature fic is not a favourite, although I'm quite fond of Veelas (Veelas = dubcon?)

  • Lots and lots about the next gen kids if it's a H/D fic, or, overly cute children

  • Plotty mysteries or whodunnits

Things I would rather not read:

  • Heavy angst

  • Addiction / alcoholism

  • Self-harm, suicide, depression

  • Gore, viscera

  • (in general) Incest.

  • (in general) Non-con - this is no way a hard squick but it's tricky for me to explain simply when I like and dislike it

  • Chan. I'm happy with age 15 or 16 if both partners are similar age. If there's age disparity I prefer both partners be 17 or over.

  • Explicit het or femslash

  • Major character death

  • Child abuse

  • Domestic violence

  • Basically anything that's a major downer. I don't find misery and suffering cathartic to read about, at all.

I don't have a problem with: Cheerful drug or alcohol use

Things I adore (specifically in smut):

  • BDSM, esp spanking, paddling, blindfolds, handcuffs, collars, ropes, restraints, kneeling, orgasm denial

  • Blow jobs, especially on knees. I really can't tell you how much I love blow jobs.

  • Coming on face or lips or stomach or elsewhere. Preferably after a blow job. I may have mentioned I like blow jobs? ;-)

  • Hand jobs. Frottage. I would really LOVE to read some intergluteal sex (fucking between the buttocks with no penetration). I am fond of anal sex, but I probably love all the other stuff even more.

  • Wanking, especially over a hated / inappropriate person or at an inappropriate time (unwilling arousal). Being caught wanking is great.

  • Kissing. Lots of kissing

  • Biting

  • Rough or angry sex

  • Sleepy sex

  • Tender and intense sex

  • Favourite body parts: Hair, jaw, throat, Adam's apple, collarbones, biceps, hands, stomach, hipbones, cock, balls, arsecheeks. Er. Is that basically all the body parts anyway? I dunno.

  • Large, thick cocks. Not monstrous, but a good size. For some reason this was one of the most embarrassing things to type? LOL, IDK.

  • Antagonism

  • Power play. Inequality.

  • Age disparity. Cross gen.

  • Teacher / pupil, boss / lackey scenarios, whether real or role-played.

  • Dub con. I really adore dub con. Probably best to avoid dub con combined with drunkenness / drugged state.

  • Beards, shaving, long hair, hair brushing, hair fetishes, and body hair, either just in description, or a full on body hair kink.

  • Scents: cologne, body odour (if not rank), smell of hair, genitals, skin, etc. I love sensory descriptions in fic in general, especially involving tactile things and / or smells.

  • Voyeurism. Exhibitionism. Semi-public sex.

  • Watching the person with another partner or deliberately flirting / performing sexual acts to make the other person jealous, or to turn them on. This works best before the relationship has started. Otherwise it tips into infidelity, unless they are in an open / poly relationship.

  • Role playing, whether light-hearted or intense

  • Androgyny / gender play, eg make up, long hair on boys, androgynous / revealing clothing. I don't especially like frou frou sort of stuff or lingerie on men, though.

  • Uniforms: boots, leather, buttons, buckles, hats

  • Clothing: formal clothing, shirts, waistcoats, ties, being sharply-dressed, immaculate clothing (if this gets ripped off later so much the better).

  • Formal clothing made informal, eg sleeves rolled up, buttons undone on shirt. One partner clothed or well-dressed and the other naked, half-dressed or scruffily dressed. (If it's H/D I prefer Draco to be the well-dressed one).

  • Unwilling arousal. Embarrassing arousal. Inappropriate arousal. Horrified arousal! :D

  • Desperation, even to point of premature ejaculation. Short refractory periods – within reason.

  • Shower sex. Bath sex. Sex in the Great Lake :D

  • Confined spaces. Forced bedsharing. Forced proximity. Forced bonding.

  • Gay for you / bisexuality (not explicit het, please) / coming to terms with sexuality

  • First times. Inexperience. Clumsiness. Innocence. Awkwardness. Nervousness. Either both partners are nervous or one being more composed and experienced. (if it's H/D, I probably prefer Draco to be more composed).

Kinks I'd rather not read

  • Knifeplay

  • Bloodplay

  • Humiliation

  • Gags

  • Breathplay

  • Choking during blow jobs

  • Object insertion

  • Name-calling: “slag”, “slut”, “whore”, “bitch”. I don't mind "tart" used light-heartedly.

  • Use of words “pussy”, “hole”, “cunt”, “gash” etc, “wet, dripping hole”, "tits", etc.

  • Cross-dressing used to humiliate or shame.

  • Torture

  • Extreme kinks

Topping / Bottoming

  • I don't mind who tops or bottoms, really, although I prefer the dynamic of a toppy!Draco, i.e. a Draco who is in charge, powerful, competent, perhaps wickedly manipulative. I don't mind who actually takes it up the arse, though, and I enjoy switching, perhaps most of all when it's described as a new or rare thing. I like the theme of bottoming = love and trust. So one partner bottoming for the first time, a Dom bottoming for the sub, or older/powerful partner for the younger/insubordinate partner, or as a one off special event, can be really hot / meaningful.

BDSM roles:

  • I tend to enjoy stories with Draco as the Dom. I believe Draco's vulnerabilities and disenfranchisement after the War would make him naturally want to take the dominating role. Likewise, I see Harry finding great relief and satisfaction in letting go as a sub. But I'm happy to read the other way around, as well. Draco as a pushy sub / bossy bottom is always loads of fun.

Darker themes:

  • I really love dub con.

  • I love an unredeemed Draco, although I like redeemed Draco too. (I basically like all of the Dracos :D).

  • I find it hard to believe in a completely Dark!Harry, or a carelessly immoral Harry. I like it where one person is being exploited / manipulated / controlled / lied to / coerced, but I like the wicked one to be Draco.

  • I like Harry to still have some fight in him, even if Draco is 'winning'. I don't like a broken and bowed Harry (a Harry who chooses to submit for his own pleasure is another thing entirely).


I hope this might be helpful in some way. Are there topics I've forgotten? Or is it just much too long? I might update at some point to talk about things I like in art, but it's pretty much the same as this, I suppose.

Please do comment if you want to say, "Yay, I'm so happy we share a love of.... " :DDD

Feel free to ask about anything that is not clear (if you don't want to spoil the surprise, you could ask [ profile] omi_ohmy or [ profile] raitala, who are both fairly familiar with my perversions, heh.) Or, alternatively, just don't worry, and write what you like, anyway! For each of the things I've said I dislike, I can probably think of at least one fabulous story that I've enjoyed with that thing in it. Thank you so much if you were interested enough to read this.
