Dear Writer Letter
Buckle up, here we go again.
Nova (Comics) - Richard Rider, Sam Alexander
Richie Rider finally returns from the Dead Pocket Universe to find Sam Alexander as the only surviving Nova left in the galaxy, cutting a rookie swathe through friends and enemies alike. Awkward hilarious mentor-ship shenanigans ensue.
New Warriors (Comics) - Vance Astrovik, Robbie Baldwin, Kaine Parker, Maria Aracely Penalba, Faira Sar Namora, Selah Burke, (Mark Sim), (Sam Alexander)
New Warriors hijinks post series five launch. There is so much humorous potential with this new team, Sam and Aracely competing for most annoying team member, Faira just wanting to hit something (reminds me of Namorita), Vance with a constant headache in the form of Kaine, Robbie, and Selah arguing about the direction the team is going in. Mark just standing back bemused by the whole team of heroes thing. Accidental heroics with awesome teamwork then more arguing.
Guardians of the Galaxy (Comics) - Peter Quill, Jack Flag, Mantis, Rocket Raccoon, Vance Astro, Groot
I love the old crew from post-Annihilation but six characters doesn't allow for Drax, Gamora, Phyla-Vell, or early team Adam Warlock to be listed but feel free to include them. I'm not keen on the latest incarnation/characterisation of the team at all. My preference is a rollicking space adventure-humour type story from around that time in the GotG timeline please? Also, coffee drinking, name calling, cosmic s#!t and/or drinks that infuriate Jack so much, and generalised stupidity that leads to improbable success anyway - with Peter and co banged up and in bandages by the end when they have to give their debriefs.
Captain America/New Avengers - James "Bucky" Barnes
Bucky's fine living on his own or with Widow dropping in and out as she likes but this whole encampment of Avengers hiding out in his apartment is getting on his last nerve. I was re-reading the whole New Avengers run with Bucky Cap during Dark Reign where various on-the-run Avengers were living/camping out in his place, eating all his food, and it was literally a dump because of it, and he was trying to start a conversation about it then stuff happened. I kind of wanted him to lose it over all the trash and being taken for granted because Bucky appears to be a really tidy kind of guy, almost OCD about cleanliness, and it was clearly getting to him (as it would most normal human beings). Slice of life-ish. Again, humourous if possible.
I love humour, humour, humour, also, happy endings, fluff, crack, plottiness, hurt/comfort, kindness, characters being competent, height difference, love, tenderness, friendship, families being families, heroism, magic, fix-it fics, rule 63, gentle touch, slice of life, mundane, mentors being awesome.
I don't enjoy (AKA please don't even consider giving this to me): I would prefer no angst at all (please I cannot stress this enough, I was given angst for Yuletide despite saying I didn't want angst and it kind of fucked up my Yuletide experience.) Also, no explicit sex, bdsm (particularly dominance), violence or any combination of those (I won't make a list of kinks I don't like, just think vanilla-ish, yes, yes, I am boring, darling), fetishism, non-con or dub-con, physical or mental or sexual abuse and anything that comes under those banners, self-harm, good going evil, dark themes, a huge multitude of AUs, character death, animal abuse and/or pet death.
Offensive language doesn't bother me. Slash or yaoi is all good and fine.
