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.

Hello, mystery creator!

Sports anime is my home, and as such this is one of my favorite exchanges. Whichever fandom(s) we've matched on, I'm very excited to see what you might create for me. Every character I've requested is one I really love within their series, and while I've specified ships I like between these characters, I will be equally happy whether I receive gen fic or ship fic. The way to my heart is definitely through giving these characters I love space to shine!

With sports anime, I tend to prefer more light-hearted content that's in keeping with the tone of the shows themselves. I love the themes of teamwork and friendship and competition, and I love seeing how characters push each other and grow together. For specific info on what I like and dislike seeing in stories, please read this post here.

If you read nothing else from my letter or my other links, however, please consider 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.

Outside of that, if you have a great idea for a fic about characters I've requested, feel free to ignore everything else I've said! Any story you're excited about writing is one I will be excited about reading.

But if you don't have an idea already, please read on while I talk about my interests with each of the fandoms I've requested. On the off-chance you love AUs, I do too! If you're interested in writing an AU fic, please consider reading this post where I talk about AUs I like and dislike, and things I enjoy seeing in different AUs. And while it's a long shot, I'm including a little section at the end of my letter for crossovers between my fandoms, because hope springs eternal and if you know both fandoms involved, perhaps you'll be inspired.

And with that all said, let's talk specifics.

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.

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! )

Hello there, mystery creator!

I tried to put a bit of information in my sign-up requests, but I'm always so happy to have the space to talk directly about what I love and loathe in exchange stories. I absolutely adore sports series in general because the format really appeals to me, and because the themes of teamwork, competition, and friendship are exactly what I love in stories. Hopefully since you're also participating with this exchange, our tastes will overlap nicely!

Also wow I'm sorry in advance for how long this is, I'm just assuming that you're matched with me based on one or two fandoms and can skip the parts of this for ones you don't know.

But let's continue on to more specifics )
