I'm so excited that we love the same things.
I love stories about women, from women's points of view, highlighting and centering on women. My requests are largely based around wanting to see more of these awesome women doing awesome things.
Ultimately, I am boring. I request the same thing year after year after year. This is NOT because I Haven't Gotten That Right Story. I have. Over and Over. And they are JOYFUL and WONDROUS and I LOVE them. And it's that same thing I crave more of.
I am a canon-based life form; I love canon compliant fic. This year I've requested some AUs, but I still typically like for the AUs to stay within the characters from the source, to stick with the original text's elements and details, and then build/modify from there.
Some theme/story elements I particularly enjoy: emotionally complex relationships between difficult/different people, found family, identity issues, grief and coping with loss, positioning oneself with regard to conflict with family, and snarky dialogue.
I love short fic, vignettes, casefic, just-like-an-episode fic, episode tie-ins.
Do Not Wants: AUs of the "What if they were all high school students/baristas/circus performers/etc?" variety, A/B/O or other "soulmate" tropes, supernatural stuff in canons where supernatural stuff is not canon, and PWPs.
My all-time favorite tropes, were you to feel so inclined: Pretending to be Married in the Suburbs, Cuffed/Chained Together and Running for their Lives, Hostage Situation, Couple's Retreat, Snowed In With A Crisis (think "Darkness Falls" in XF rather than PWP), Presumed Dead, Groundhog Day (where applicable)
I threw prompt ideas into my optional details, and you may play with those if they strike your fancy.
Also feel free to ask me anonymous questions here; I'm rubbish at ISP tracking and will never figure out who you are.
Thank you again for writing for me. I'm so excited to see the love letter you write to one of our shared favorites!
I neglected to put my prompts here.
