Likes & dislikes in fic (or the entry where I went on and on):  
I've been wanting to do one of these since birdsofshore and firethesound made theirs. And then gracerene did the Snowflake challenge and challenged people to make them; I went ahead and made mine, too. I blame them.

Likes, dislikes and everything in between. I warn you, I went MAD. Seriously. I'm ridiculous. ^^


• Harry/Draco OTP ♥
• James Sirius/Scorpius Next Gen OTP ♥
• Harry/Ron
• Draco/Al
• Harry/Scorpius
• Cross Gen pairings – I favour Trio Era with Next Gen mix the most (but I'll get to this in a moment).
• Pottercest

This list could be endless, actually, because I love all sorts: Harry/Sirius, Harry/Charlie, Harry/Teddy, Teddy/James, Charlie/Teddy, Scorpius/Al, and any combination of them. I love Cross Gen and the powerplay dynamic, (as said above, I favour Trio Era/Next Gen. I love when Harry is half the pairing ^^ but it doesn't mean I don't love other characters, I'm just listing my top faves, or trying to - rather badly), I love Next Gen, too (James, Al, Scorpius, Teddy the most). I admit I haven't ready many Marauders Era fic, and the ones I've read I've loved, but it's not something I'd put in my likes because it's less common for me to read them, not because I don't enjoy them.


I like a lot of stuff. Like, a lot of stuff, okay? Tropes and clichés: BRING IT. But to be a bit more specific (in no particular order):

Tropes & Clichés (and stuff that's maybe neither but I'm putting here anyway):

• Memory Loss fics
• Mpreg
• Disability fics
• Creature fics: Veela, werewolf, vampire, other
• Harry or Draco working for the other
• Roommates
• Co-workers (Auror partners or just Ministry workers – totally could be from different departments, too!)
• Down on his luck!Draco
• First time/getting together
• Bonding Fic
• Muggle AU
• Kid!fic/Parenting
• Muggle living
• Hurt/comfort
• Rentboy
• Powerful!Harry
• Hung!Harry (omg, please?)
• Coming out fics
• Draco!logic (you know what I'm talking about ^^)
• Unusual Careers
• Healer!Draco
• One taking care of the other
• Unspeakables

Well, and this list also could go on and on. I didn't even get to include Minister for Magic!Harry or Seer!Draco or friends first, or getting to know each other, or. But anyway. Love clichés & Tropes. In fact, all the tags at my rec comm are a good clue just how long my likes list could be, and even so, it still doesn't cover all I like. It's crazy, I know.^^

General Likes:

I tend to favour Post-Hogwarts, EWE or Epilogue Compliant. But I do love 8th year, too. It's just, yeah, just by this much *tiny space between thumb and index finger* I like Post Hogwarts better. :D Unless it's Next Gen, then I really, really have no preference, though I admit I've read most Hogwarts Era than anything when it comes to Next Gen. ^^

I love humour. I know a lot of my likes seem to be suited for angst, but nope, I LOVE humour, too! Silly scenarios and unexpected/weird/funny careers. Seriously, love humour. Flangst, fluff, drama, PWP.

I like banter and bickering. I like pinning and obliviousness. I like flirty stuff and UST and then having it resolved. I like knowing how they got together. Coming out. Bisexuality. I like Draco in glasses (it's totally a thing, right?) and wearing blue things, or, you know, blue sheets, yeah? (Though he'll probably look hot even in canary yellow.) ;)

I like it when Ron and Hermione are super and still very close friends with Harry because, how else it could be, yeah? Neville being awesome. <3

I like both first time and established relationship. I love both bottom!Harry and bottom!Draco, but pressed to pick I'd say I favour by this much bottom!Draco (Same with Mpreg ^^). And really, this is a slight preference, I do love both. But what I really like, and this I'm totally stealing from lq_traintracks and I quote: I do love if there's a dynamic there, like if one of them is *more* Toppy and the other *more* bottomy, even if they end up switching (so that the switching could be a little taboo or all ~meaningful and shit) <---- that. Like I said before, I like both dynamics, top!Draco and top!Harry but having to pick one or the other I'd go with bottom!Draco.

I like the funny, the feels, the SMUT.

Who loves smut? I LOVE SMUT! XD Fingering, dirty talking, blowjobs, thigh sex (intergluteal and/or intercrural sex), half-dressed sex, hung!Harry (yes, I know I said this, but I have to say it again ^^), size!kink (big time :D), rimming, slow sexy sex, hot quick and dirty sex, cross-dressing (not a whole outfit - I mean, it doesn't have to be - but knickers and/or skirts are super), dub-con, biting/marking, daddy!kink, shower!sex, knotting, A/O dynamics, come play (and here I want to include the whole "don't come until I tell you" thing, and "come for me." Maybe that's not come play and I need to read about that?). Well. Heh. Yes, I like smut a lot.

I love Kinks! I guess not those that you have to Google to even know what they are, you know? Super hard-core stuff, scant, bloodplay (if it's a creature Vampire fic, totally okay), things like that, but I'll get to this in the stuff I don't particularly like.

But you know, I also LOVE lower rated stuff. I do. :) I love fluffy, funny, witty things just as much. ♥


Um, I kind of don't have them. ^^ If I have to put something (on a prompting form) I usually go with; character bashing, homophobia and unhappy ending. Sometimes I remember to include mayor character death because, you know :(.

What I do have is. . .

Stuff I don't particularly like:

And this is an odd list to make because there's no stuff I just won't read. Well, probably character bashing is my only big no. But other than that, this is mostly stuff that I don't actively look for but when it shows on my flist or in a fest, I start reading and see. Or stuff that I have to be in a particular mood to enjoy or look for.

This would include: homophobia, spanking, infidelity, heavy plotty stuff.

Well. See, it kills me because some of my favourite fics include that and sometimes even stuff from the ~squicks list~. :D The thing is. . . I just love reading, and just like sometimes I run into something that includes something I love and just didn't do it for me, sometimes I read something that is not on my top favourite list that drove me crazy. So really, that little list is mostly the stuff that is safe to say I won't prompt but would totally read if someone writes it. :D

Also, past relationship, when Harry and Draco were together and they break up and spend many years apart but loving each other. So sad and I guess I'm a sap? ^^ Though I admit I've read it and absolutely loved several stories like this, but I favour getting together fics over getting back together fics.

Oh! The super hardcore/extreme stuff. I guess I'm not fond of knifeplay, torture (as a kink, if there's torture on the fic because a Dark Wizard got Harry and Draco, well, what are you gonna do? It's not like they're going to be fanning H or D with feathers or anything, right?) gore, etc. But you know, same thing, I've read it sometimes and loved it, but, just to be on the safe side I'll just put them here. ^^

I suppose this list doesn't apply to fests because coming the Horror Fest I'd read and love MCD and even gore and stuff, or coming Kinkfest I'll read kinks that aren't on this list, maybe they are in the 'stuff I don't particularly like' or something, but for the purpose of making it, well, there it is. Heh.

And that's more or less my list. Wow. Shit. Sorry. I don't think anyone went through this but at least I had fun writing it. XD Also, this list was made for fun, but if for whatever reason you happen to be writing for me (*HEART EYES* I love you already! And really, you don't have to ♥♥♥ ) asking eidheann_writes, birdsofshore or lq_traintracks can totally fill the blanks. :)

So. *scuffs feet* How are you today, you dear and tormented livejournal friend? Did someone make a post filled with endless babbling and contradictions? I'm sorry! <3

Awesome! And I agree on the dislikes being so hard! I mean, one of my favourite fics (that isn't hp so I won't link to it), contains lots of D/s dynamics and some pretty kinky stuff that I'd never think to ask for. It's often so very hit or miss, either I'll love it or I'll hate it. But I'm like you, there's nothing I absolutely won't read under any circumstances (not that I know of anyway).
Love your list<33
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 03:06 pm (UTC)
Listing the dislikes is super hard! I started thinking and came up with something and went, "but X writer writes that/them so well and I love it," or, "oh, but then there was that fic. And that other fic." But you know, in a general way, this is what I came with. Not very much. LOL

wicked smut goddessgracerene on January 23rd, 2015 02:57 pm (UTC)
You are so cute! LOL, I actually felt bad making mine, because I feel like I have a lot of things that I tend to dislike, but there are obviously always exceptions!

But this is awesome, so happy you did it! <3
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 03:13 pm (UTC)
Scruffy!list. :D I'm glad you made this challenge. It's been awesome seeing all the lists. <33

And I know!! Right now I can list a bunch of fics that have spaking, infidelity, heavy plot stuff and MCD that I absolutely love, but you know, that's more the exception than the rule, and since I figured I had to put something I put that just to be save, but it doesn't mean I won't read it or love it! Man, lists are hard.

Hadn't had this hard time since I did that Headcanon!Harry & Headcanon!Draco post. XD

"But I do love 8th year, too. It's just, yeah, just by this much *tiny space between thumb and index finger* I like Post Hogwarts better."
↑ Ditto to that! ♥

thigh sex (intergluteal sex)
↑ Wait, isn't thigh sex intercrural? And intergluteal would be the asscrack? xD? Or were you saying you like both intercrural and intergluteal sex?

"just like sometimes I run into something that includes something I love and just didn't do it for me, sometimes I read something that is not on my top favourite list that drove me crazy"
↑ Ahhh, that's a good way to put it. I mean, I definitely have some hard squicks (I can't say I've ever liked infidelity in a fic - open relationships, yes, but infidelity, no), but I've read super depressing fics with major character death that I loved, even if they broke my heart and I can't reread it and would never prompt it. :P

I think eidheann_writes summarized this post/your likes and dislikes perfectly. xD
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 07:30 pm (UTC)
They're not the same?? Oh, oh! They're not! Well, you're right though, I like both so I made a tiny edit in that part because, omg, yes, that's hot. :D

And yes, I'm like that. Sometimes there's stuff I wouldn't prompt and LOVE and go over the moon but, you know. Yes, of course you do.

And hey, no pointing and laughing. XD *lol*

I love reading these lists! It's always so very interesting to see what's on other people's likes and dislikes. Most of the time I find I'm just nodding my head going, "yes, yes, I agree totally." In fact, when I think of doing one of these myself, I usually just figure I'd end up quoting everyone else, like you did with lumosed_quill. I pretty much love all tropes as well, and my dislikes are pretty slim and quirky. Thanks for doing this!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 07:32 pm (UTC)
You should absolutely make your own list! It's super fun. And hard, man, it's hard. But the fun kind of hard. :D

*hugs* And quote away!

Lovely list, hon!
It's a guarantee for a pretty good reading experience when one likes so many things, right?

Just thought about awickedmemory's comment about infedelity and came up with iwao's rec from last week - Tumble Down.
There's probably even an exception for all the things. ;p

Yep. :) I'm lucky because I don't have many squicks so it's like... I get to read pretty much everything. :D

I've read several infidelity fics that I've loved (and recced), and yes, that's an amazing one! :D

Let me inform you that your flist is highly ntertained by endless babbling and contradictions ;)

Seeing your likes made me squee - not because I share all of them (though omg yes! disability, memory loss, kidfic ♥), but because you're so wonderfully enthusiastic ^^

Now I want to kind of do a list of my own, though that'll likely be more complicated than yours.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 07:40 pm (UTC)
Disability!!! There's no enough disability or memory loss fic. Almost in every fest I prompt something because <333. *nods*

You should make your own list! I'd love to read what you like and what you don't. Dooo iiiittt! <333

Haha, I just kept reading and reading, thinking, is there going to be anything left for her DISLIKES list? aaaanndd the answer was apparently, NOPE. You're so awesome. I pride myself on being fairly open minded and up for any kind of kink, but you just blow right past me, it's fantastic! Wonderful list, sweetie <3
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 07:45 pm (UTC)
LOL *hugs* We have a lot in common!

Yeah, I have very few dislikes. I always try for the story to take me, you know? I think reading is very creative. Not in the same way as writing, of course. When you write, you're opening yourself to people, you telling them a story, but when you read, you're opening yourself to someone, too, you're listening to them. :D

Avid Supporter of the Booty Floolq_traintracks on January 23rd, 2015 05:39 pm (UTC)
I've refrained from reading everyone else's just because I know a) it will make me want to write all the things and b) I'm afraid I'll start writing to people's tastes ALL the time rather than my own sense of inspiration. But I had to read your list all the way through, because it was so damned entertaining!!!!! I'm ashamed of my own now. Hahaha!

You know, I adore hung!Harry, but I have this special SUPER adoration for a Draco with a centaur cock. \o/

I just thought I'd throw that out there. :-)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 07:48 pm (UTC)
I *love* your list. <3 I love it! I nodded along all the way through and I even stole a tiny bit from your erised sign up because, yes. <3

horsecock!Draco ftw! LOL

As soon as I finalise my Big Bang tonight (which I'm panicking about looking at various flisters squicks and wondering who the hell will read it :D) I'm totally going to do one of these. I LOVE your list, and I was really curious to know where your preferences are, as you're always so wonderful with your reading and commenting, supporting fests and pairings you wouldn't necessarily gravitate towards in gift fics for example. YOU ROCK <33

Also, UNF hung!Harry. I have a massive size kink (IN FIC :D) and I love, love, love that. Your smut list is wonderful.

(which I'm panicking about looking at various flisters squicks and wondering who the hell will read it

LOL *HUGS* I'll read it!! You know I will and love it, too! <3 Omg, Harrybang is almost here!!!!

I've always wanted to make one of these, because in sign ups I've seen people preferences and it gives you a good idea, you know? And I read everything and I love everything, my list pretty much includes almost everything. :D

Can't wait to see your list. And your bang! All bangs!
candamiracandamira on January 23rd, 2015 09:16 pm (UTC)
All the lists! I discover something new in every new list I read. I don't even know all the things I like or probably would like if I read a fic featuring them. All the lists are such an inspiration. And I adore your way to say 'I like it all, more or less' in so many words! <3 CAPILOVE :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 23rd, 2015 09:53 pm (UTC)
LOL Yeah, I could have sum it all up in "I like it all more or less". eidheann_writes made a pretty nifty summary up there. :D

But I do! I LOVE FIC! <333
