. These were written several years ago, but basic likes and don't likes remain the same:
slash though there are some het couples that I like and two of which I've requested, happy endings though ambiguous/open-ended endings are good too depending on the fandom, well-written characters
rape, betrayal and in a similar vein: adultery, characters that are written very out-of-character unless there's a good reason, humiliation/embarrassment kink
Boku no Chikyuu wo Mamotte | Please Save My Earth
Ogura Jinpachi | Gyokuran / Nishikiyori Issei | Enju
I like reincarnation stories and this one is epic. Anime or manga, I'm not fussy. I would prefer slash between Jinpachi and Issei or gen. Canon het can be included, though I would like Jinpachi and Issei to end up together. It can be future-fic or past timeline fic or current timeline (before the manga epilogue) with Jinpachi and Issei as teenagers. Explore their relationship and how their memories of their past lives affect them today. Or maybe a fic on how they've gotten over the past and living their current lives to the fullest. I would prefer a happy ending but an ambiguous ending is fine as well for this fandom. I would like to avoid a sad or tragic story though as their past lives canon is sad enough.
I like this two together though canon did not make that happen. Change the ending or do an alternate universe. You can also go het with Gyokuran and Enju, but I would prefer a story with "present day" Jinpachi and Issei. I would just love to read more fic for these two.

Kawachi Daikichi / Kaga Rin
I have few exceptions where I actually like het and this is one of them. I also love the canon het pairing which isn't the popular choice amongst those who read this series. I would love to read het or gen for this fandom.
Gen fic when Rin was younger would be great. Explore some of the other holidays or just how Daikichi and Rin interact with the others. Maybe something with Rin's friends.
Het fic when Rin is older would also be lovely. Maybe something set between the time Rin confesses and Daikichi returns her feelings. How does Daikichi's family handle the news that he's marrying Rin? Or something from Daikichi's POV, how does he fall in love with Rin? Or something post-canon. Maybe Rin and Daikichi as parents.
Happy ending all the way though, please, as this is a cute series and I would prefer to read something in a similar vein to the series.
I love Daikichi and I love Rin. I love them separately and I love them together. So really, any story with the two of them in a similar vein to the anime or mange, I will love.
Tenshi na Konamaiki | Cheeky Angel
Amatsuka Megumi / Soga Genzo
This is a hard series to find in English but I loved what I remember of it. Also one of my few het exceptions as I love Megumi and Genzo together. Canon het or gen would be great for this series. On the gen side, you can explore Megumi's relationship with her friends, especially her best friend. Or what about some other adventures and/or other fights? Or maybe something set post-canon with Genzo and Megumi ending up together. If slash is more your thing though, what if Megumi was really born a boy and turns back into a boy? Would Genzo still fall in love with the boy Megumi?
This is a hilarious, over-the-top, crazy manga. Write something in the same vein or something more serious. The art is hit-or-miss for me sometimes but I really like these two together.
My Beautiful Laundrette (1985)
Johnny Burfoot / Omar Ali
I love this movie and I love Johnny and Omar together. Anything with them would be great. It could be something set during the movie, maybe some missing scenes. Or set post-canon, do they get a civil partnership? Do they now have a chain of laundrettes? How do they deal with the changes in how homosexuality is viewed in Britain post-canon? How do they deal with their very different cultures and backgrounds? How do their friends and family deal with them?
This is one of the first slash movies that I ever saw with a happy ending. Previous to that, slash movies I had watched had tragic/sad endings. This is one of the reasons I love this movie so much. I love the whole East meets West thing Omar and Johnny have. You can play off that more. Or maybe curtain fic (or washer fic for them). It doesn't have to be a serious fic as well, it can also be light-hearted, similar to the ending. I just love this movie and these two together.
Plan B (2009)
Pablo (Plan B) / Bruno (Plan B)
I really liked the ending of this movie and would have loved to see more. So really, anything post-canon would be great. How do their friends deal with them being together? How does this change their relationship with Laura? Pre-canon could be interesting but I would still love to ultimately see both of them together. During canon, what are the missing scenes you would have loved to see?
Another slash movie with a happy ending. Though I've noticed more and more of these recently. I like the storyline of two relatively straight guys falling in love with each other. It's one of my favorite slash tropes. I also like the relationships they have with their friends (romantic and otherwise). Including any of their friends (including exes) would be great.
And there you have it, my dear Yuletide Santa! Hope you found a few items that sparked your imagination. Hope you have fun writing a fic for me. Thank you!
