 I just finished rereading a couple of old "lost in a snowstorm/must huddle for warmth" types of stories, and it made realize just how much fondness I have for those tropes. 

Now, I'm curious to hear what types of hurt/comfort plots other people like?

"lost in a snowstorm/must huddle for warmth"

is definitely one of my favorites! Other hurt/comfort tropes I love:

- having to share a bed,
- temporary blindness (should be handled sensibly, of course),
- bathing or washing the other...

Helloooo, this is not my favorite topic or anything. :DDDD

Huddling for warmth is one of my favorites, too! I also really like:

- characters being woozy and out of it (from drugs or a head injury or whatever) and being around someone they trust to see them like that.
- stranded in the wilderness, or other trapped-together scenarios
- forced to watch someone who's hurt and not being able to do anything about it (what a friend of mine calls "being trapped on the other side of the glass)
- presumed dead
- general worry/angst/fear for the other person ("don't die on me Bob!")

... and many more ... :D

Omg huddling for warmth! I love that one too, although I think my all time favourite is recovery from social isolation <3

Other than that:
- stress and anxiety relief
- bathing/hair washing
- short sickness/food poisoning
- lost/found

I do like the emotional hurt comfort ones. Where a partner comforts a partner after something bad happens. Magical Healing Cock, even, lol.

I love the emotional hurt/comfort genre, when one character is having a really hard time or is at the end of their rope and the other character does their best to provide solace. Also helping someone through panic/anxiety attacks. My favorite hurt/comfort subgenre though is definitely nonsexual ageplay :3

Physical hurts, particularly big life-threatening ones.

I like the "being trapped on the other side of the glass" phrasing [personal profile] sholio's friend uses.

Hurts that need assistance when the only person around to give it isn't necessarily a friend (but gives it anyway/begrudgingly).

I love 'must huddle for warmth' stories.

Some of my other favourites are:

-friends to lovers
-bodyguard/protecting someone
-hurt/comfort due to physical or illness with the emphasis is on the comfort.
I've read far too many fics where the emphasis is on the hurt and very little comfort.

The psychology of recovery. Seems just about every character I'm drawn to has some form of PTSD, and it's fascinating how they deal -- or don't -- with what had happened to them.

My fave is this little thing called "casual intimacy". Just. Being comfortable and in each other's spaces like you belong there, no matter if it's platonic or romantic. Also any kind of trope that involves building and developing relationships, that's my jam.

Pinned down by gunfire. And then hot sex because the world as they know it is ending, anyway.

I am always for "huddle for warmth" fic, but I also really like non-smutty bed sharing fic (I mean, I like smutty bed sharing fic too, but there's something really sweet about people cuddling and comforting innocently), and, just the standard someone is sick/injured and the other has to care for them. (Though I cringe a bit at the H/C that includes really graphic, detailed H.) If I'm in the right mood for it (angry at something, usually) I like those usually slightly OOC fics where A does something not cool to B and spends the rest of the fic apologizing/making up.
