Migrating to Dreamwidth

Because of the new LJ ToS, I'm making a long-overdue migration to Dreamwidth. I'm a bit paranoid about Russia given the 2016 election shenanigans, and I've written a lot of slash that I've been linking/posting/etc. on LJ. Given Russia's opinion about gay people and 'promoting homosexuality', I figure moving to Dreamwidth is a good idea.

I've imported all of my old entries to Dreamwidth. I'll leave the entries on this journal up for now (unless LJ tells me they're against Russian law and to take them down). From now on I will be solely posting to Dreamwidth.

You can find me at https://polkad0tting.dreamwidth.org/.

Shipping Primer: Stan/Gaël and Stan/Jo

Stan and his Frenchies!

So, you all know already how I feel about the Stan/Benoît ship. It’s what got me into writing tennis fic in the first place; I will always and forever love it tremendously, write it, and read each and every fic that everyone writes in it.

But at the same time, I’m totally not an OTP-er, and Stan is pretty much my fandom bicycle. (Along with Rafa.) I’ll read him shipped with anyone! (I take that back. Not Nick Kyrgios or Donna Vekic, for diverse reasons.) He’s so friendly with almost everyone on tour, and has such flirty touchy-feely banter with people, that how can you not have ship-goggles when you see him?

(See for example: Roger & Stan’s celebrations after winning Olympics doubles gold and the Davis Cup title (and just them in general). Novak pinching Stan’s butt as he passed Stan during an interview (and other bromantic moments, as well as Stan teasing him by giving him a mini version of the famous shorts). Stan absolutely hosing Ferru down with champagne after a final they played against each other. Stan’s constant smiley flirty banter with French-speaking umpires. Stan cuddling Seve and dipping him in a dramatic hug after Davis Cup. All the horsing around and intimate looks and hilarious moments and cuddles and celebratory hugs he and Magnus do. ETC.)

SOOOO. I recently donated in the Fight Back Fic auction, and decided to ask for a fic of either Stan/Jo or Stan/Gaël. Since they’re such rarepairs, my writer asked for me to talk a bit about their relationships, and thus this squee post/ship primer was born! :)

come right this way!Collapse )

Yuletide 2016

Hello, I’m polkad0tting (polkadot on AO3). Welcome to my little sports-crazy world! (I am generally pretty sports-crazy anyway, and it’s an Olympics year, so I’m super sports-crazy right now.) You’re already my new favorite person for volunteering to write one of my fandoms. Please don’t be worried about writing for me – I’m very easy to please. :)

I have lots of old letters from many different exchanges, so if you’d like more insight and/or ideas about what I enjoy (particularly in sports-fic), please do feel free to poke through them. I generally talk a LOT, because I am a chatty person and have lots of feelings, haha.

Trick or Treat 2016

Hello, I’m polkad0tting (polkadot on AO3). Welcome to my little sports-crazy world! (I am generally pretty sports-crazy anyway, and it’s an Olympics year, so I’m super sports-crazy right now.) You’re already my new favorite person for volunteering to write one of my fandoms. Please don’t be worried about writing for me – I’m very easy to please. :)

All of my requests are for a) treats and b) fic. This isn't because I don't like tricks or art! I adore art, but I'm unfortunately shit at writing art prompts, so it doesn't feel fair to inflict myself on an artist. If any of my fic prompts inspire you to create art, though, I promise to love it forever! :) And re tricks - there it's more that I only like a subset of tricks (supernatural, as opposed to horror, dark, & gory), so again, it didn't feel fair to box my writer in like that.

Pole Vault Part 3: Women's Pole Vault

Part 1: Intro, Legends, & Renaud Lavillenie
Part 2: The Rest of Men's Pole Vault

Time to move on to the women's game! :)

I talked about Yelena Isinbayeva in Part 1. She hasn't won a World Championships since 2013, but still, her presence in the sport has always been huge. With her retirement, we officially move to a post-Isinbayeva era, and it's going to be really interesting to see the new generation stepping up.

In the final part of this fandom primer/pimping post, I'll move on to look at women's pole vault! Post-Isinbayeva, there are some exciting young athletes poised to make their mark.

On to Part Three! (work in progress!!)
Hello everyone! This is a fandom primer/pimping post for the grand sport of pole vault and its athletes. It's been great fun to put together and I hope it's enjoyable and/or useful! :)

Pole vault (prosaic): An athlete sprints down a track carrying a pole. At the end of the track, they plant the pole in the box, transferring their momentum into the pole and using it to soar into the air. At the peak of their ascent, they let go of the pole and attempt to clear a bar without knocking it down.

Pole vault (poetic):



IntroCollapse )

The LegendsCollapse )

Renaud LavillenieCollapse )

In Part 2 of this fandom primer/pimping post, we'll meet all the other vaulters who are chasing Renaud! :D Including, but not limited to, Renaud's baby brother Valentin.

On to Part 2!

Not Prime Time, 2016

Hello! :) This is my first time participating in Not Prime Time, after doing many other exchanges and I'm really excited! I hope you are too. You’re already my new favourite person for volunteering to write one of my fandoms. If we share one of these fandoms, you are wonderful & awesome & everything lovely. Please don’t be worried about writing for me – I’m very easy to please. <3

First, basics, and then on to the fandoms!

Like list
• Basic: SPORTS, friends-to-lovers, falling in love, comfortable established relationships filled with affection and in-jokes, couples kicking butt together and saving the team (and then picking up the drycleaning on the way home), people knowing each other really well, banter, emotional support, worldbuilding (some of my favorite questions: how does that thing work? what are its ramifications? what are some things the original canon POV might have overlooked?), plans, plans that don’t go according to plan, working together and using different strengths, sports (did I mention sports?!)
• In romance: Snark, banter, fond teasing, zaniness, affection laced with humor, snuggling in bed, people in love who enjoy spending time together but aren’t codependent.
• In porn: Kissing, exploring a partner’s body, unexpected erogenous zones, talking during sex, sex that doesn’t go quite right but they run with it and make it awesome anyway, incoherent noises, morning sex, well-developed biceps and shoulders, fingering that's enjoyed for itself, wall-sex, multiple orgasms, laughter.

Squick list
Basic: Infidelity, bullying of any kind, cruel jokes, noncon, dubcon, incest, bestiality, underage.
In romance: Gaslighting, too much neediness, characters who are in love but don’t seem to really like each other very much, A/B/O.
In porn: Someone kissing their partner after rimming them without washing their mouth out first, bad dirty talk, not caring about their partner’s comfort and pleasure.

Forward!
