First and foremost, thank you for volunteering to write for one of my fandoms! Also, I am very sorry (again, still, in perpetuity, this year and every year) about the delay in posting this letter. I continue to be the actual worst. Please feel free to disregard everything in this letter and write whatever you damn well please. That being said, I have tried to cover my general likes and dislikes, and provide a few (totally optional!) ideas.
In any and all fandoms, I am 100% OK with receiving any subset or combination of characters requested.
I enjoy both shippy (slash, femslash, het, poly, whatever strikes your fancy) and gen fic of all flavors and genres and ratings, from unapologetic schmoop to grimdark, bad-ending, Terrible Things to out-and-out smut. Kink-wise, anything goes; just show me the characters being themselves, and being into it, and I'm game. In my signups, I may have mentioned ships I particularly like. Please feel free to write gen, or a totally different ship if that's what floats your boat. If you'd like to write it, go for it! I am happy to be convinced.
A note on characterization: In cases where I have mentioned my oddly specific character feels, please do not feel obligated to incorporate them if they don't work for you. My perceptions of characters are almost certainly not exactly the same as your perceptions of them. I know mine; please introduce me to yours!
I love worldbuilding, especially the mundane details of daily life (what is Character X wearing? Sleeping on? Eating for breakfast? What do the surroundings smell like? Tell me about the weather! Tell me about politics!). I like complicated feelings and human (and other sentient being) complexity, and morality that isn't merely gray so much as polychromatic.
My one hot-button narrative squick is embarrassment-based comedy.
I personally have no triggers; I urge you, however, to apply content warnings as appropriate for the health and safety of other readers.
CAVEAT: All of these are optional details which are optional. If there's something you were aching to write when you offered, please go for it. If there's something you'd like to write that bears no resemblance to any of my nonsense, by all means write it! The story you want to write is the story I want to read.
