Hi! Thanks a bunch for writing a story for me. All of these fandoms are dear to me and I'll be so delighted to get any of them.

Hi, thank you for writing a story for me!

Generally )

The rest of the letter is identical to the optional details in my sign-up, except for an extra paragraph for Disney Princesses.

Firstly, if there's a story you already have in your head for whatever pairing we got matched on, please feel free to ignore my letter and go for that! An idea you're excited for is almost always going to be a better story than one written when you want to be writing something else. But if you're looking for ideas to spark off, here are some things I like.

Generally: I love AUs, especially with self-indulgent tropey settings - highschool, space, coffeeshops, flower shops, band AUs etc. I love canon fic too, but just to say that if you were wondering about AUs, I am cool with them :) (The one caveat I'll add there is that I don't like seeing characters' nationalities changed for AUs.)

I love happy or somewhat hopeful endings, and pining, and first kisses. I love clever magic and plottiness and monsters and desperate codependent huddles. I love amnesia and memory shenanigans, and communication troubles, especially with a magical or SFnal bent, and In Vino Veritas and truth spells and deception and telepathy. I love charming plot-lite banter and cute animals, especially if they're a little weird. I love robots and AIs. I love listfic - 20 facts, care and feeding instructions, fic in the form of recipes etc.

I don't mind about rating - you can go as high as you like, or you can restrict them to a kiss on the hand, whatever works for the story.

I would rather not get tragic or unrequited endings, noncon or dubcon, omegaverse, infidelity, pregnancy and babyfic, marriage and weddings, or domestic established relationship/curtainfic (I don't object to it or anything, it's just a harder sell for me personally?)

Hiiiii. I am so sorry.

So I was travelling during signups, which I mentioned in the bare bones signup along with a semi-promise to write a letter when I got home? And then I got home and I was tired and figured I would write a letter in a few days when I was feeling sparkier? And then I still hadn't written a letter and I thought wellll I love all these fandoms, I will be delighted with anything my recipient gives me, maybe I don't need to write a letter? And then it was definitely too late and I figured nobody was going to be checking for one anymore.

Then just now somebody on twitter was complaining that their recipient still hadn't written a letter, woe, and sudden guilt. So. On the off-chance that you have in fact been checking this journal periodically and with increasing frustration, 1) I apologise, and 2) here is a super quick letter. (ETA: Lies, this is really long, whoops. PROBABLY NOBODY IS READING IT, I don't know why I went on so.)

Most important note: Seriously, I love these fandoms, I will love anything you write me.

Things I am into in a general way: I love AUs, as out-there as you like. I also love canon fic! I'm just saying that AUs are a thing I'm cool with, if you had an idea but were unsure of it. I love femslash and het and gen and slash. I'm happy with explicit scenes, but don't need them. I love best stories that hinge on a relationship, whether it's romantic or otherwise, and where there are emotional stakes in that relationship: something that could be lost, something that's a point of conflict, something they want from each other. But stories that are about a character's relationship to self are also really cool, so, you know. If you want to write a character study, go for it.
