Five Acts!

Hi! I signed up for Five Acts! I'm the weird person whose five acts are not kinky, nor even very porny.

Here's what it means:

1. You post on your journal with a list of five acts (kinks, tropes, things) you really love, and a list of the fandoms/pairings you like. Leave a comment at the sign-up post with a link to your list.
2. Browse the Master List to see others' acts. Write something and post it in a comment on their journal. Other people might write something for you, too!
3. Profit.

My five acts:
1. Communication Difficulties: I like it when characters have a hard time expressing their emotions to one another, but they do it anyway because keeping a friendship or relationship together is just that important to them.
2. Cooking: I love it when characters cook for each other as a way to show love, platonic or romantic. (If they decide to have sex on the kitchen table afterward, that is also fine by me.)
3. Strong ladies who like to be a little submissive in the bedroom because even tough people need to lose control now and again. (I'm not talking formalized d/s here so much as women who unwind by letting someone else be in control for awhile)
4. Banter and snark as foreplay, during sex, after sex, between friends, between people who have UST, between enemies...basically, I'll take all the snark, all the time, in sexual or non-sexual situations.
5. Reversals of traditional gender roles. Women being physically or emotionally protective of men, women asking guys out, women as breadwinners, female bosses with male subordinates, etc. etc.

Friendship fic welcome for any of the characters listed below...
Agents of SHIELD: Melinda May/Grant Ward, Jemma Simmons/Antoine Triplett
Avengers: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Natasha Romanov/Sam Wilson, Nick Fury/Maria Hill, Steve Rogers/Maria Hill, Tony Stark/Pepper Potts
Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Jake Peralta/Amy Santiago
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow Rosenberg/Tara Maclay, Anya Jenkins/Rupert Giles, Dawn Summers/Xander Harris, Faith Lehane/Anyone
Star Trek 2009: Gaila/Anyone, Leonard McCoy/Nyota Uhura, Spock/Uhura, Amanda/Sarek, Winona/George
Veronica Mars: Veronica/Logan, Veronica/Weevil (pre-movie only please), Veronica/Piz (pre-movie only, please)
Five Acts is wonderful! Have a great time, and yeah, you can totally get whatever you want, not just Certain Things.

Dinner - Nick/Maria, cooking
If there was one thing that very rarely happened in her life at that point, it was being surprised. After all the weird shit she’d seen—and trying to explain that weird shit to a bunch of old men in words small and simple enough for them to understand. For days on end.—there was very little in the universe, she thought, that could put her off her game.

But after the day she’d had—“No, sir, we are not currently tracking the Hulk because you’ve dismantled SHIELD’s infrastructure.” “You’d have to get a biochemist in here to explain to you how one can get super powers, Senator.” “Mr. Stark has proprietary rights to the Iron Man technology. That was not part of SHIELD, but feel free to bring it up with his legal department.”—the sight in her kitchen was damn near staggering.

( the rest is on AO3, I couldn't make it fit!)
