Hello, glorious person!

First up, let me just say that I'm a) super excited, and b) going to be gloriously ecstatic with whatever you write for me, so don't worry about that. Mostly this letter will be filled with general, wishy-washy sentiments about how much I love certain characters so let your imagination run wild. I will try to be helpful though, I promise.

So, to repeat what I say pretty much every year:

I like slash, femslash, het, and poly relationships, but am equally happy with no romance at all. I love trope based fic, and character studies, and long plotty things, and short fluffy oneshots, and action and gen and porn and friendship dynamics and found families. I tend to steer towards lighter stories but I also love a good dose of angst especially if it's appropriate for the fandom. Really, you can't go wrong, so have fun creating whatever catches your fancy and I can assure you that as soon as the fics go live I will be sat there grinning stupidly at my screen.

Things I'm not so keen on: abo universes, unhappy endings, humiliation/embarrassment, deathfic, 1st/2nd person narration, non-con/dub-con, pwp, everyone else knowing about a relationship before the people in the relationship.

Things I love: happy endings, first times, misunderstandings, accidental dating, fake relationships, road trips, time travel, requited pining, canon inserts, post-canon codas, general fluffy things with a sharp edge, non-sober antics, slow burn. (kinks: dirty talk, foreplay, riding, height/size difference, just generally two people being super into whatever they're doing and vocal/obvious about it).

(Normally I'd put AUs in the 'things I love' catagory, but I'd actually rather avoid those with the fandoms I've picked this year, if possible. I don't know who I am anymore.)

[darvish, chandra, aaron]

I love this book so much. So much. It took every trope I crave and gave me the most satisfying ending I could hope for along with characters that mean the world to me. I could go on and on about why I love the three of them but if you've read the book and offered this then you already get it.

I would love a post-book piece about their new lives at Chandra's home, something that focuses on them as the beautiful found-family that they are. I view Chandra's part in the relationship as platonic, but if you give me cuddling and bed sharing for warmth of something like that I'd be ecstatic. I love the different dynamics the three of them have with each other so anything furthering that would also be great, and if you also happened to mention Chandra's slowly repairing relationship with her father I'd probably cry. Outsider perspectives of the three of them would also be amazing.

On the other end of the spectrum, I wouldn't be opposed to something a bit angsty. For instance, Aaron being taken from them and Darvish and Chandra willing to tear the world down to get him back. Maybe something to do with Aaron's family, even? And of course Aaron knows Dar and Chandra love him but he doesn't honestly believe they'll be able to come after him, and even if they could he doesn't want to put them in that kind of danger. I mean...who doesn't love angst with a happy ending and fiercely protective significant others?

Or, you know, something really Darvish/Aaron shippy. Whatever floats your boat.

Basically you can't go wrong. Trope it up and I'll be the happiest bunny in the warren.

I'm assuming anyone offering this has read Crooked Kingdom, but if not, stop reading this! Run away!

Anywho. Again, I adore these books. You might have noticed that found-families are basically my favourite thing in the world. Also, I'm obviously giving free permission to throw Nina into whatever you write if you want to.

I'd love something post-Crooked Kingdom, particularly something maybe about Jesper/Wylan and how they become the sanctuary for the rest of their family. I like to imagine Inej always just appearing when she's in the city, climbing through a window and joining them at the dinner table, and none of the staff even blink anymore, just set another place. I like the idea that Kaz doesn't come around, not at first, and it sets off Jesper's insecurities more than it should, and Wylan wants to punch Kaz in his stupid head, except it's more about Kaz's issues than anyone elses and not wanting to wall himself in. I like the idea of Wylan and Inej spending two days painting a room just for Nina, filling it with beautiful things and always keeping a box of sweets next to the bed just in case.

I'd also love something about them teaming up again, for another job. Maybe something Inej comes across on her travels, or maybe something to find/save Nina. Mostly I'd love to see them working together and also how they've grown and changed since they went up against Van Eck.

I'm 100% here for all the canon ships in the books, and for Jesper and Nina being able to, and I paraphrase, flirt the whole of Ketterdam into submission. If you wanted to just write me Jesper/Wylan fic with cameos, I would be a-okay with that.


[luke smith, clyde langer]

I miss my boys so much. I didn't pick any of the other characters because I wanted it to be clear where my longing, shipping heart lies, but honestly feel free to include anyone you like because I love everyone at this party.

As long as it's fic about these two failboats finally getting together, I honestly don't have a preference. Something set during their school years or during their uni years would be wonderful, and misunderstandings and pining and probably alien invasions are all a plus.

[rook wallace, mike tate]

Ahhh. So I remember reading this for the first time in 2011 whilst on holiday, and it became one of my very favourite stories, so when I found out it was being officially published I pre-ordered it so fast I'm not sure my poor laptop knew what was happening, and then it was everything I remembered and in my hands.

So. I'd love something keeping in the style of the books - basically, happy, funny, and feat. Mike's ridiculous and perfect band of misfits. Maybe something about Mike and Rook coming out to the whole school, probably in a totally over the top way like making out against their lockers and not noticing that everyone else is out of class or Mike accidentally showing up wearing Rook's clothes because it was too fucking early, okay?

I'd also just love the inclusion of each other in their lives. Like Serge getting mad because Mike's his friend and there has to be, like, a formal agreement carved out where Mike spends a certain amount of hours Rook free with Serge per week or Serge will probably burn his record collection or something, what the fuck. Or Chris Leoni half glaring - half halfheartedly trying to be Mike's friend at work and Mike not knowing what the hell to do with that because it's like the first sign of the apocalypse or something.

Basically just ridiculous teenagers being ridiculous teenagers ♥

I hope you can find something helpful amidst this rambling mess. Thank you a thousand times in advance, dear author.

♥ ♥ ♥
