I am so glad you found your way here. I cribbed this from former years, but if you are stuck, I hope this letter gives you some ideas for things you can write. If you have an idea for an AU or off-the-wall scenario or future fic that you are dying to see with the characters I asked for, go for it. I want you to have fun writing and not to stress it – I want you to enjoy yourself.

I’m a character-driven, relationship focused story fan, so if you stick with that – from a small friendship story to epic romance – I will love it. I love all types of intimacy from gen to explicit erotica; my favorite kink is D/s, and I also like hurt/comfort, just not of the illness kind.

I love worldbuilding, and all of the fandoms I’ve asked for involve rich worlds to explore. You can also build yourself a new one with alternate histories and timelines, or make them all members of the same band. Feel free to bring in other characters if you want, including original characters; my selected characters should be the focus, but that doesn’t mean they are all alone in the world.

Tropes I love: First times, teasing, banter, dark pasts, found families, self-realization, wistful regret, pining, old hurts, second chances, dreams, adventure, ass kicking, angst, exotic settings, outsider POV, wacky undercover situations, steampunk, horror, other worlds, whumpage, hurt/comfort, themes about frriendship, trust and love. I'd also prefer a happy ending.

I do have some dislikes: heavy illness (cancer, AIDS, etc), pregnancy, public humiliation/embarrassment, death and permanent disability. I'm not keen on first person POV or all dialog stories, though I am fine with a story narrated by an original character, animal companion, or inanimate object.

I’ll try to give you a little more background on what I like in my chosen fandoms.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
I love the feel of the series, and the quirky, fun and self-confident women of the show. I'm not looking for a romantic relationship between all the characters I selected, however if you wanted to write something like a relationship between Dot and Phryne from Jane's perspective, I would really excited by that. Or the three of them having their own adventure -- possibility of a Call of Cthulhu nature -- would be lovely as well.

Books of the Raksura - Martha Wells
Moon, Jade and Chime - I love the universe, I love the characters, I love the depth and complexity of the Raksura culture...just anything that you wanted to write with the three of them would be great. I'd like to see a balance between all the characters in whatever you choose to do, but anything would make me happy.

Archer (Cartoon)
Pam! Oh you sexually confident minx you. I know Pam's a bit crazy and a little disgusting, but I love her outrageous nature, her take-on-anything attitude, and her lack of boundaries (especially for someone in HR). Her lust for life and her sexual appetite -- not to mention her lack of ability to be humiliated -- are a hoot. If you wanted to write sex for Christmas, Pam is my go-to gal.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013)
I thought this was a lot of fun, and I would love to see more of the characters. I really did want to know what happens next with all the big, bombastic weapons, the slinky outfits, the silly steampunk-y alternate explanations for how things work -- it's all there. If you want to go over the top, well, this is the place.

October Daye Series - Seanan McGuire
May and Jazz don't get  a lot of focus in the novels, and I want to see more of their daily lives. If Pam is sex, and Hansel and Gretel are crack, then May and Jazz are my cozy couple. I don't have a lot of need for big adventures for them; I'd be happy to just have them run into trouble while shopping downtown, or just have difficulty putting some Ikea furniture together. I'm really interested in what Jazz's life is like as a raven maid and how she balances that with her life with May. I'd be interested in seeing her perspective on Toby and Tybalt as well.

Enjoy writing your story and I'm sure I'll love reading it. All of the details are optional, and I’m happy to leave specifics up to you. Like I said, I love these characters and I'll love whatever you choose to write in any of these fandoms. I'm really looking forward to it!
