Sorry it's taken me so long to get all my ducks in a row for posting my vid from Escapade: my laptop refused to work on any of the hotels' wi-fi while I was traveling, I guess the OS is just too old or something, so I couldn't post it to all the usual places. Anyway, at some point soon I hope to have this it's now up on my vids site (gwynethr.net) for a HQ download, but in the meantime streaming's all I got.



All We Do
Artist: Oh Wonder
Fandom: Political Animals (and let's be real, Sebastian Stan)
On AO3 on Tumblr


I've always wanted to do a TJ Hammond vid, and I'd originally planned to do this song for Jack Benjamin in Kings, but chatting with vidder Secretlytodream, it really did seem to belong to TJ. I was roundly mocked for my interest in Sebastian's different roles this weekend, but you know, whatever, I like his face. Anyway, thanks especially to przed for the helpful beta!

I'm super happy you are writing for me! Yay, we have fandoms in common and you love the same people I do -- this is wonderful, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with about these characters and fandoms we share a mutual love for. I may be adjusting this until signups are closed, but for now, this will suffice.

I used my Optional Details in the signup to provide more specific info on the individual fandoms or possible prompts, so I haven't added a lot of specifics here in this letter, just general thoughts about the fandoms I requested. I'm not always the best at providing prompts, but if you'd like more ideas than what's in the signup form, you can have the mods ping me and I'll do my best!

General stuff about me: I'm open to angst and romance and humor and slash and het and gen, character studies or long plotty stuff (I love plotty stuff), fluff or drama. I'd generally prefer not to have anything really grimdark, though, but if that's where your story goes, I'm not the kind of person who'd freak out about it. But I've been battling depression for a few years, so stuff that's going to make me more depressed might not be the healthiest thing. I love first times and falling in love, friendships, relationships between people who are equals. Friends to lovers might be my ultimate trope. Banter, sass, and having fun is always catnip to me.

Stuff I don't like includes BDSM/anything particularly kink-oriented (I don't mind mild, characters-flirting-with-some-kinks stuff, but if it's more than lightweight I might not be your best audience), non-con in any way, emotional abuse, any sort of animal harm, or deliberate cruelty. I'm not fond of AUs such as coffeeshops or sports or ABO, any of that sort of thing--what I tend to love about my fandoms is the canon universe they inhabit, that's what made me fall in love with them in the first place. What-if AUs (canon-divergence) can be really cool, though--I love it when someone comes up with a story off of one tiny element being changed! Obviously, I tend to hew pretty closely toward canon, is what I'm saying. :-D

Two of my requests involve twins, and I'm a twin, so I'm kind of sensitive to the way twins are often misrepresented in media--a little homework about twins and what we're really like would go a long way if you end up writing either TJ or Jack with their twins.

In some of my requests, I would love slash if I can get it (and you're comfortable with it), but slash doesn't automatically equal porn. For me it's about the depth of the bond between the characters, the discovery of a new intimacy or a strong connection. With straight relationships, I like seeing behind the expected: not simply love or sex because it's the standard, rather the exploration of what two characters may learn about one another or find in themselves through the relationship. I don't have anything against sex scenes (I love them!), but I prefer if a sex scene has a reason to exist within its story.

Some of the tropes and approaches I enjoy: right now, I really love hopeful endings, words that camouflage deeper/unspoken meanings, protectiveness, worry, extreme competence (with honest weakness), hurt/comfort, found or chosen families, partners against the world, nurturing via food/drink/warmth. Don't be afraid of the classics if you like 'em! Having to Share a Bed, Huddling for Warmth, Pretend Couple, situations where one suffers or sacrifices for the other, rescues, stranded somewhere (idyllic or non-), etc. And if you can write time travel of some sort, I'll probably fall in love with you.

Yay, we have fandoms in common! This makes me happy, and I will be super excited to get a vid in one of these fandoms we both love. Squee!!! My notes are pretty explanatory in most cases, but here's some information that hopefully you'll find helpful.

I'm super happy you are writing for me! Yay, we have fandoms in common and you love the same people I do -- this is wonderful! Because of that, I'm pretty sure I will be a very happy recipient, just because I will have a gift story in a fandom I love. I'm terrible at giving prompts, I really am, so if you'd really love some actualfax prompts, have the mods ping me and I will do my best!

You might notice a strange similarity to my requests. I have loved all my requested fandoms for a long time, and have even requested them before, but this year I have been so utterly obsessed with Captain America: The Winter Soldier (well, and the first movie, too) that I can't even see anything else, so I've chosen Cap2-adjacent fandoms -- stuff with Sebastian Stan and Chris Evans. SebStan's been ruining my life for years, and now Chris Evans is too. I hate them. I love them. Hate them. Love them. Sister! Daughter! Ahem. Anyway. What this means, dear author, is that for the first time in my life I'm reading crossovery things. So if you want to cross any of these characters over with someone from another adjacent fandom, or someone else, or even write an OC, that's cool, as long as the focus is on the YT character. If you'd like to know what fandoms I'm into, you can see a lot of that in my tags on my journals <LJ handle is gwyn_r), and also in the list of fandoms I've written/vidded on my AO3 account.

General stuff about me: I'm open to angst and romance and humor and slash and het and gen, character studies or long plotty stuff, fluff or darker. This year, I'd kind of prefer not to have anything really grimdark, though, but if that's where your story goes, I'm not the kind of person who'd freak out about it. But I've been battling depression, and so stuff that's going to make me more depressed might not be the healthiest thing. I love first times and falling in love, friendships, relationships between people who are equals. Stuff I don't like includes BDSM/anything particularly kink-oriented, non-con in any way, emotional abuse, any sort of animal harm, kid/baby fic, and all that stuff that's kind of AU-y like wingfic and ABO or other things I try never to know about. I tend to hew pretty closely toward canon. Also, two of my fandoms involve twins this year, and I'm a twin, so I'm kind of sensitive to the way twins are often misrepresented in media--a little homework about twins and what we're really like would go a long way if you end up writing either TJ or Jack with their twins.

I'm going to steal heavily from Dorinda for this part of my likes list:  I love slash if I can get it, but for me slash doesn't automatically equal porn. For me it's about the depth of the bond between the characters, the discovery of a startling and unexpected intimacy. I don't have anything against sex scenes (I love them!), but I prefer if a sex scene has a reason to exist within its story. (And honestly, the same can be said for het for me as well.)

Some of the tropes and approaches I enjoy: right now, I really love hopeful endings, words that camouflage deeper/unspoken meanings, protectiveness, worry, extreme competence (with honest weakness), hurt/comfort, chosen families, partners against the world, nurturing via food/drink/warmth. Don't be afraid of classic frameworks if you like 'em! I mentioned hurt/comfort, but I also won't turn up my nose at Having to Share a Bed, Huddling for Warmth, Pretend Couple, situations where one suffers or sacrifices for the other, rescues, stranded somewhere (idyllic or non-), etc.
