I’m so sorry for the late letter! If you’ve already started something, and it doesn’t intersect with these prompts/ideas, don’t worry about it--just go with your idea!

In any case, thank you so much for writing a story for me! Any fic in these fandoms would make me happy, so please just write what seems fun and interesting to you! I saw this phrase in someone’s dear author letter once, and it perfectly expresses my feelings: If you come to a place where you think you can either write a good story or make me happy, write a good story.

If it’s helpful, here are some things about my general preferences:

I like slash, gen and het equally (I tend to read less F/F, but when it's right for the characters I enjoy it)—I’ll be as happy with a G story as I will with one that’s NC-17—same goes for anything in between.

H/c is bulletproof for me, especially of the minor-injury/sick!fic/comfort!fic variety. Give character A the flu and have character B look after him/her and I’ll be yours for life.

If you do feel like writing porn, I’m quite partial to kink, if you can make it plausible for the characters. Any kind of sensation play/ pain play is great, including blood, guns and knives,as long as it’s RACK. I have a soft spot for AMTDI and fuck-or-die fic.

If it's something you're interested in, I like fic that explores altered mental states, dissociation and the effects of PTSD.

I love crossovers, so if for some reason we’ve matched on more than one fandom, feel free to mix and match. I don’t much care for AUs, unless it’s in the service of a crossover.

Other things: being in dubious battle; unexpected moments of empathy; compassion; connection; courage; honor; competency--but also moments of uncertainty and failure.

Things I’d rather not read: mpreg; watersports; a/b/o fic; character deaths that aren’t part of canon; infidelity; kid!fic; and fluffy animal!fic.

On theory that one writes what one likes, here's my fic on AO3

Optional prompts in alphabetical order

I finally finished reading Allegiant recently, and I was fascinated by what we get of Natalie's story. I would love more from her POV, more letters, or something unfiltered, about her relationship with Andrew--their courtship, their domestic life together. I'd be very happy with something from the other pairings/friendships I requested, too, so don't worry if we matched on that instead.

Killjoys has been my happy place for the past few weeks, and really anything you want to write in it (except for incest) would be awesome. I feel like all the h/c tropes should be written for this fandom--hypothermia, bedsharing, rescue breathing, etc. All the other tropes, too--fake married, undercover in a gay bar, AMTDI, & etc. I would also love even more exploration of the show's interest in trauma & addiction.

I was excited to see this pairing come up in the tag set. I love Leckie, and all the fic for the Pacific is Snafu/Sledge. Anything you want to write about Leckie and Chuckler would be fantastic. One thing I loved about the Leckie sections of the miniseries was how much they subverted the usual narrative of war dramas (ie, the "innocence lost" narrative of the Sledge sections--these guys were never innocent)--so anything along those lines would be great.

I listed a bunch of pairings here, and they would be great. I listened to audiobooks of this series last year while training for a half-marathon, and enjoyed them immensely. I have a particular soft spot for Tayse/Senneth, just because they come so late in to love, and have so many memories and burdens from their pasts, but really, anything would be great!

Have fun!
