I'm counting on having maybe 24 hours after signups close to write this. If I haven't written this yet, please click the tags listed on this entry for whatever fandom we've matched on; the details in my previous letters will cover maybe 90% of what I requested.

Update: should be done letter by Friday, invitation to read past letters instead stands.

First and foremost, thank you for writing for me, anonymous stranger!

I'm always awfully long-winded with letters, so I'll try to make this one as comprehensive as possible, and make my extra info as optional as possible. My sign-up itself has prompts for all of my ships, but here you will find extra info on my reading preferences, my thoughts on these canons, and my thoughts on the characters themselves.

If you would like to read a post on my general likes and dislikes in fiction, that can be found here.

If you're considering writing an AU and would like to read a post on the sorts of AUs I like and dislike, that can be found here.

For easy reference, my hard list of no's is the following: gratuitous angst for angst's sake, rape, abuse, physical assault, terminal or mental illnesses, homophobia as a plot device, jealousy as a plot device, pregnancy or child-rearing, and foot fetishes.

Beyond that general info, my opinions about my fandoms are below. I invite you to read whichever sections are relevant to those series we match on, and am very excited that one of these series I'm very fond of is something you're interested in as well!

Daiya no Ace )

Eyeshield 21 )

Fate/Stay Night )

Samurai Flamenco )

Keijo!!! )

Gundam Wing )

Hello, mystery creator!

Firstly, let me thank you for writing for me. Whatever we've matched on, it's a fandom I believe deserves more love, and I am delighted that you'll be making new content for it. I've used my sign-up itself to talk about the things I like best with the characters and ships I've requested, so I'd mostly like to use this space to talk about my general likes and dislikes, and perhaps to give a few more specific prompts, if you'd like those.

Before everything else, the one request I make of you is that you avoid the following: gratuitous angst for angst's sake, rape, abuse, physical assault, terminal or mental illnesses, homophobia as a plot device, jealousy as a plot device, pregnancy or child-rearing, and foot fetishes.

My dislikes aside, things I love tend to include character-focused stories, strong narrative voices, thoughtful pacing, experimental plot structures (if you think you can pull it off), innovative language and vivid descriptions, and anything that plays with reader expectations only to subvert them in interesting ways.

In terms of content, I love themes about friendship and teamwork, rivalry and competition; I love explorations of leadership, authority, and mentorship, and I love to see power dynamics and mindgames playing out between characters. I love really fraught, tense relationships where characters challenge and push each other, but I also love quiet moments between characters with a focus on caretaking and domesticity.

For more specifics on things I like and dislike in fic, I also like to link this post, for lengthier elaboration.

With these fandoms, I'm most interested in canon-based content for ping pong and silver spoon in particular, but overall I really love AUs! If you have any such ideas, I'd absolutely love to read such a story. My preferences trend toward fantasy, science fiction, and crime-related AUs, but for more specifics on what kinds of AUs I love and why, I direct you to this post.

Anyway! This is all the general stuff I absolutely wanted to have down before assignments go out. If you're reading this before Tuesday or Wednesday, check back, because I do usually give specific prompts and won't have time to add those until then. But mostly, I'm excited to see something for these fandoms I love with these characters I adore, and as long as you avoid the things I really dislike, I'm sure I'll love whatever you create!

Hello, mystery creator!

Thank you very much for writing for me. The fact that we've been matched means that we share a love of a fandom that's dear to my heart, and that's really cool. I've been trying to streamline the way in which I write "dear author" letters, so this go-around will be a little different.

For a lengthy, comprehensive post about my likes and dislikes in fiction, please go here. The "likes" section details general things I enjoy in stories as well as themes I'm a fan of, on the off-chance you find that a useful jumping-off point. The "dislikes" section explains why I dislike the things that I dislike.

If you ignore every single other thing that I say, please read only this: I would like for you to avoid any content with gratuitous angst for angst's sake, rape, abuse, physical assault, terminal or mental illnesses, homophobia as a plot device, jealousy as a plot device, pregnancy or child-rearing, and foot fetishes.

These generalities covered, I prefer to use my signup itself to cover why I like the ships that I chose and to talk a bit about the kind of dynamic I see between the characters. If that primer gives you some ideas, great! If not, I'll use this space to give a few more specific prompts, and to talk about any things I'd prefer for you to avoid that are specific to any one fandom. If you're a fan of AUs, so am I! For most of my fandoms I would be delighted to read an AU fic, and I have a post here where I talk about the AUs that I like and the sorts of things I like to see in them.

With that all said, let's talk about my fandoms.

Eyeshield 21 )

Hello, mystery creator!

First, thank you for writing for me. My signup seems to be a greatest hits of animanga fandoms I've loved in recent years and I'm delighted our interests overlap on one of these counts.

That said, my optional details on AO3 are pretty specific this go-around, so I'd primarily like to make use of this space to talk about my general likes and dislikes in fiction. I've also given specific prompts for each of my fandoms, which you are welcome to draw from if you need a place to start and are equally welcome to ignore if you have an idea of your own you'd like to run with.

And with this, the letter! )
