I'm mainly here because I like shonen ai/ yaoi (lemon yes, but not *too* hardcore) and therefore love to read fiction about it. And there are many good stories here- and lots of crap, too, yes, but some fics are plain good. They're worth being here.
Authors who give some thought to their stories. Sometimes you can practically feel that a story is like the author's beloved child. Very nice. I also like authors who have a good grip on grammar and spelling. Or those who have enough sense to get a beta reader when they don't possess that grip. I like multi-chapter stories; a one-shot has to be really compelling for me to like it. Chapters should neither be too short nor overly long. I prefer fluff and drama, but mystery and fantasy as well. AUs can be great, too, depending on the plot.
FAV FANDOMS: Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, X1999, Tokyo Babylon, Yami no Matsuei
FAV PAIRINGS: Obvious: Takano/Ritsu, Sei/Su, Tsu/Hi
MPREG (the very *idea*...!), crossdressing, characters being completely OOC (a little can be good, depending on the story), most crossovers, stories written in dialogue style (intended or not), stories full of grammar/spelling mistakes (not knowing everything is okay, nobody does. But what do you think beta readers are for?), original characters in fanfics (especially typical Mary Sues and generally female OCs in a yaoi story), yaoi stories with a married couple and stupid kids in them (where's the difference to a f*ing hetero story?? Just stick to het if you want a happy little family!). Oh, and there are pairings I absolutely loathe- like Muraki/Tzusuki, for example *shudders*.
That's it for now...
