I am, I feel: thoughtful
Thanks to capsized, I'll be doing femslashex this year. This is bungee-jump level terrifying to me, which is saying a lot because I am deathly afraid of both heights and falling.
This is particularly scary to me, because:
- I haven't tried writing anything since late 2012
- I haven't posted any fics since early 2012
- I haven't done an exchange since 2009
- I have never done a multi-fandom exchange
Right now I'm a little stuck with my nominations. Two of my fandoms have already been nominated with all the pairings I would have asked for (Final Fantasy VI, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time); two more have been nominated with different pairings, but the person who nominated them still has empty pairing slots and I might be able to talk to them about adding mine (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, The World Ends With You); and another one has been nominated with different pairings, but someone else has mentioned that they might nominate the pairings I want (Avatar: The Last Airbender). So that's five fandoms before I've even nominated any of my five.
(This is a good thing, because for this fest I have to request 4-6 fandoms, and offer 4-10 fandoms, with more being better, so with these fandoms plus the ones I nominate, I pretty much have my offers sorted \o/)
So, for my nominations I'm thinking:
1) Final Fantasy X/-2
(Pairings: unknown) - I kinda have to nominate it, because I'm the one who mentioned it on the discussion post, but I'm only allowed 5 pairings (I currently have 8, and that's the shorter version of the list)
2) Tomb Raider
(Pairings: Lara Croft/Samantha Nishimura, Lara Croft/Joslin Reyes)
3) Gunnerkrigg Court
(Pairings: Antimony Carver/Katerina Donlan, Gamma Czarnecki/Zimmy, Katerina Donlan/Paz Cadena-Blanco)
4) either Final Fantasy VIII or Final Fantasy XII
- see below
5) either D.E.B.S or Saving Face
- see below
(#4 might yet end up being one of the other fandoms mentioned earlier if no-one else nominates my pairings, so I don't want to get too attached to this one.)
For #5 I want at to request at least one fandom that has a canon f/f pairing, and a film so that it would be reasonably easy for someone to get into the fandom from scratch (in case of matching problems, or lack of inspiration, or whatever). I would be thrilled to get something from either of these, but I don't know which to nominate for this exchange. D.E.B.S is cheesy, involves supervillians, and does not take itself seriously; Saving Face is more everyday and serious, while still being happy.
Do not get me wrong, they are both very good - and if you get the chance, you should totally watch both of them - but they are also very different films.
Help me choose? comments
