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!

Eyeshield 21 )

Hello, mystery creator!

Before anything else, I'd like to thank you for writing for me. I signed up for this exchange at the very last minute and scrambled to get this letter together, so I am sorry in advance if it's a mess. If you have an idea you're excited about for any of my requests, go for it! If not, I'll try and give you some ideas about the kind of fic I'd love to read.

All I really ask 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.

That said, for a more specific summation of my likes and dislikes in fiction, I refer you to this post here. If you enjoy writing AUs, I love reading them! There are a few that I'm not a big fan of and I talk about that here, as well as about the types of AUs I adore and my favorite things to see from them.

(I definitely don't expect you to read all of that unless you're feeling Really Thorough, but hey, pick out the bits that will help you. I for one am Very Thorough.)

Beyond these generalities, I'd like to talk a little about each of the fandoms I've requested, and give a few optional prompts you might use for inspiration.

Daiya no Ace )

Ping Pong )

Hamatora )

Samurai Flamenco )

Love Live )

Chihayafuru )

Anyway! That all said, I'm really excited to see whatever you make for me!! Characters are my primary focus in any media I truly adore and when it really comes down to it, if you write the characters I've requested with thoughtfulness and compassion I am sure to love whatever you create.

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!

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've gotten really long-winded in my exchange letters, so I'll try and reel this one in. First, thank you so much for writing for me! I love all the series I've requested from a great deal, and I'm glad we've connected on one of these fandoms. I'm sure whatever you write will be lovely, so I'd just like to use this space to talk about things I generally like and dislike to see in stories, and give some little scenario suggestions in case you'd like a place to start.

Onward with the letter! )
