* BerserkButton - Don't ''ever'' tell me I should have gotten a Mac. I don't want a Mac, and if all Mac users are as snobby as you I really don't think I want to count myself among them.
* BloodKnight - In some ways. I'm always looking for ways to challenge myself and I love a good bout of sparring whether verbal or physical, but like it a lot better when it's friendly.
* DeadGuyJunior - My middle name, anyway.

* GenreSavvy - I can almost always predict what is going to happen in a movie or TV show, even if I have never seen it before. One of my major criteria for the goodness of a work is its ability to surprise me.

* IfItsYouItsOkay - This is actually the way attraction in general seems to work for me...
* OlderThanTheyLook - By about 10 years or so.

* AffablyEvil - More villains really ought to learn that this works in their favor.
* CombatPragmatist - I have nothing against showing honor to an opponent ''who upholds the same standards'', but on the whole, lives should come first.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy - [[XanatosGambit David Xanatos]] = Best Villain Ever.

* AuthorTract - Works that contain social commentary ought to make people think, ''not'' attempt to browbeat them into thinking like ''you''. What's more, if a work [[{{Anvilicious}} starts beating me over the head with its message]] I'll be inclined to start taking the other side regardless of what that message was.

* ForTheEvulz - Seriously, give your villain a motive. The only case where I've ever seen this done well is with ''{{Gargoyles}}'s'' Thailog, and even ''he'' had a motive for wanting to act evil for evil's sake.
* HonorBeforeReason - If the only thing at stake is a tournament trophy, that's one thing, but if lives other than your own hinge on you winning a battle, ''you don't fuck around''.
* ICanChangeHim - No, ladies, you can't. ''He's'' the only one who can change him. What's more, a complete psychopath isn't a really good person inside who just needs some love, he's a complete psychopath who if he needs anything needs some therapy, hopefully accompanied by being locked away where he can't hurt other people.

* RomanticPlotTumor - The idea a lot of writers seem to have that every story ''has'' to have a romantic subplot in order to appeal to a wider audience gets extremely tiresome after awhile.

* VillainBall - I think that heroes should save the day on their own merits, rather than because the villain did something inexcusably stupid.

* GenderBender (in {{fanfic}}) - If the point is to explore WhatCouldHaveBeen if Alex had been born Alice, I'm all for it. If it's just because the author thought Alex and Bob would make a good couple but ''ew that would be gay!''... No. If you don't have the guts to write a slash pairing, you shouldn't be writing the pairing to begin with.
* InterspeciesRomance - Depending on how... compatible... the species are. I ship [[{{Gargoyles}} Elisa/Goliath]] like mad, but in cases where [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong the differences go too far]], then it's all FridgeHorror, BodyHorror, and {{Squick}} for me.
* MisterSeahorse - I only like this one if it's PlayedForLaughs. Taken seriously or portrayed as romantic, it's just [[{{Squick}} squicky]].

* BerserkButton - Among other things, the phrase "You should have gotten a Mac" is liable to send me into an unstoppable rage.
