Day 14

In your own space, share your love for something fannish: a trope, cliché, kink, motif, theme, format, or fandom.

Trope: Cosmic Horror Story, definitely. For me this trope works better in print, because in visual medium there's too much of a tendency to show instead of hint and of course any kind of horror is always worse when you have to use your imagination.

Cliché: Love at First Sight, although I prefer it when people fall for each other but we still see them have to work at it to maintain the relationship. Even if the relationship doesn't work out - I mean, just because you don't wind up with someone doesn't mean you didn't love them, it just means things didn't work out, and that's okay. Rough, but okay.

Kink: Long hair, preferably thick and silky. Mmm. Especially on men. Especially loose and flowing down someone's back.

Motif: Fairy tale motifs, the aforementioned Cosmic Horror Story, light surrealism (if it's so surreal you can't follow it I don't usually care for it), people encountering each other through multiple incarnations.

Theme: Works that deal with the balance between good and evil. I also like works that don't have a great overarching stop-the-world-from-ending theme but deal with individual people, such as low fantasy.

Format: I prefer prose over other formats. I've always been attracted to words. I can certainly appreciate other formats, but text is the one I gravitate to first.
