over on tumblr there is a "ultimate fanfic trope showdown" quiz? test? that ranks your taste in fanfic tropes and these are my results:

Rank Name

3 Seemingly Unrequited Pining
4 Espionage AU
5 Loyalty Kink
6 Trapped in an Elevator/Snowed-In Cabin/etc
6 A/B/O
8 Coffee House AU/Food Service AU
8 High School/Uni AU
10 Adopting/Raising a Baby
11 Soulmate Identifying Marks: Tattoo, Red Thread of Fate, etc
12 Rivalmancy
12 Friends to Lovers
14 Enemies to Friends to Lovers
15 Royalty/Arranged Marriage
16 Age Difference (possibly due to time travel)
16 Vampires/Werewolves AU
18 'Groundhog Day'/Karmic Time Warp
19 Magical Connection (telepathy, etc)
20 Fake Out Make Out
21 Hurt/Comfort
22 Amnesia
23 Role Reversal AU
24 Reincarnation/'25 Lives' AU
25 Sex Pollen
26 Actually Unrequited Pining
26 Incest
26 Selfcest (possibly due to time travel)

i'm actually surprised at the placement of some of these, particularly a/b/o being at number six, because i had never even read an a/b/o fic until last year, the year before? even though i started reading fic back in 06/07! on the other hand, i am absolutely not at all surprised by the first five because found families, loyalty kink, fake relationship, spy au, and seemingly unrequited pining are my faves. also this was strangely difficult? but that may just be because i'm an extremely indecisive person.

if you do it, let me know! i'd love to see your results (and see how similar/different ours are).
