Hello! Tumblr is going down and I am swimming for that big, sexy lifeboat: Dreamwidth.

This will become an intro post/directory in the next couple of weeks. For now it's an open askbox. Post away!

What the title says! It was the first volume of Silver Spoon I've ever read (because the library didn't have v1 physically there, but I love Arakawa and wanted to see if I could jump in - the character portraits at the beginning were helpful).

It is so funny. And so heartfelt. I lost it at so many different places; specifically I remember Yuugo's amazing reaction and immediate genre savviness when Aki invites him to her family's farm during the summer, the deer debacle, and the Princess Mononoke reference, but there were a lot of others. The reactions are golden... everyone feels so human. :)

Hello, gift-giver!

In the spirit of this exchange - and because signing up was a bit of a last-minute decision for me - I'm going to keep this letter brief, and just aim to give you an idea of what I generally like about each fandom I've requested + what/who I'd like to see for this exchange in particular. If you want to delve deeper into my likes, dislikes, ramble-y preferences, etc., feel free to look through my other exchange letters and my tumblr!

To reiterate my signup: I'm requesting fanfic only for Purimgifts this year, and I am DNWing archive warnings for noncon, major character death, and underage. Though I like smut generally, for this exchange I'd prefer everything to stay at or below an M rating.

General likes and requested fandoms! )

Hello, creator!

I love this fandom, so no matter what you're writing or drawing for me I'm excited to see what you come up with.

Some of the things I love most about FMA are the detailed settings, the trains, the almost-steampunk vibe, the complex backstory, and the ensemble cast and the way their lives and stories begin to interweave as the greater story plays out. I really love how in FMA people of all different ages, genders, occupations, ethnicities, skill sets, personality types, etc. get a chance to shine as characters and find meaning for themselves within the framework of a bigger story. The potential for worldbuilding is something I like a lot - there's so much going on beneath the surface, socially and politically and historically and in so many other ways. I am also deeply attached to Arakawa's core messages of loyalty to family, friends, and home, and working tirelessly to change the world for the better and right great wrongs. And ngl... all the blood, body horror, and xeno potential doesn't go unappreciated either.

If you have an idea for one of these characters or relationships that isn’t listed here or you want to use one of my general likes rather than a specific prompt, go ahead! I like surprises, and seeing other people's interpretations of the characters and relationships we both love.

In terms of general tone, for romantic pairings I enjoy subtle pre-shippy stuff as much as explicit PWP, and everything in between is excellent too – I’m not looking for a certain “level” of conventional romantic feeling or behavior from my / ship requests. Though I’m open to receiving painful/dark/unhappy content in this exchange - go as hard as you want on angst, pain, kink, etc. - I'd prefer at least a bittersweet if not hopeful tone/ending for any darker stories. Nothing super bleak, please.

Although I'm only requesting fic this round, I love art and am open to art treats!

A specific note about FMA: I'm a manga/BH fan who has never seen 03 or Shamballa, and as such I don't view Amestris and the surrounding countries as direct Eurasia-in-the-1910s analogues. I prefer FMA worldbuilding that is more in the vein of sci-fi/fantasy or a kind of fantasy-steampunk-biopunk blend to an approach that treats everything as an alternate history of "our world", if that makes sense.

Hello, creator!

Thank you for writing or drawing for me – I’m excited to see what you come up with.

The prompts in this letter are meant to give you some idea of what I like about the fandoms and relationships I’ve requested this year. If you have an idea that isn’t listed here or you want to use one of my general likes rather than a specific prompt, go ahead! Most of my enjoyment of exchanges and fanworks in general comes from seeing different people’s interpretations of the characters and relationship dynamics we both love.

For fandoms where I requested both fic and art I’ve divided the prompts into fic prompts and art prompts, but if you’re a writer and one of the art prompts inspires you or you’re an artist and one of the fic prompts inspires you, go for it! I’m also open to art treats for fandoms where I’ve only requested fic and vice versa.

In terms of general tone, for romantic pairings I enjoy subtle pre-shippy stuff as much as explicit PWP, and everything in between is excellent too – I’m not looking for a certain “level” of conventional romantic feeling or behavior from my / ship requests. Similarly, in this exchange I don’t have a preference for humor vs. fluff vs. angst vs. ambivalent complicated weirdness, and have tried to prompt situations that could be interpreted from multiple emotional standpoints. I’m open to receiving painful/dark/unhappy stuff as long as it isn’t over-the-top bleak "rocks fall, everyone dies".

Hi, creator!

I'm already looking forward to whatever you write or draw. Hopefully these prompts will be helpful and give you some idea of what I like about the relationships I've requested, but if you have an idea that's not listed here feel free to go with it! A lot of my enjoyment of exchanges, and fanworks in general, comes from seeing different people's interpretations of the characters and relationship dynamics we both love.

For romantic pairings I enjoy subtle gen-flavored shipfic and pre-shippy material as much as explicit porn, and everything in between is excellent too - I'm not particularly fussed about seeing a certain "level" of conventional romantic feeling or behavior from my / ship requests, which is part of the reason I've lumped & and / ships together for pairings where I've requested both. Similarly, I don't have a preference for humor vs. fluff vs. angst/darkness vs. ambivalent complicated weirdness, and intentionally tried to prompt situations that could be interpreted from multiple emotional standpoints. I'm okay with receiving unhappy stuff for this exchange as long as it isn't totally bleak.

Hi, writer!

I don’t know who you are or which canon we matched on yet, but I’m already looking forward to reading whatever you come up with, whether it be fluffy shipfic or plotty post-canon theorizing or in-depth worldbuilding or a dark canon divergence AU or anything else you’re moved to write! My taste in fic is as varied as my taste in canons (I know the four I’ve requested this year aren’t incredibly similar), so it’s pretty much guaranteed that I’ll love whatever you produce.

Although I’ve tried to provide a variety of prompts, in the end those are just meant to help you out. There isn’t a specific fic of my heart I’m looking for, and I don’t expect you to follow my prompts to the letter – or even to follow them at all, if you have a completely different idea you’d like to try. I trust your judgment.

Feel free to treat all my character requests as “or” requests. If you’re working with an individual character prompt and the other requested character(s) won’t fit into the story, don’t worry about trying to shoehorn them in. I love all the characters I’ve requested, and am not gunning for a particular relationship or dynamic to the exclusion of all other options.

Hi, writer!

I don’t know who you are or what we matched on yet, but I’m looking forward to reading whatever you come up with all the same. What I love most about all three canons I’ve nominated are their realistic-yet-original characters, the way those characters relate to each other, and the crafting of the world in which those interactions take place. I assume that since we’ve matched on one of those canons you feel the same way about it, which is awesome. 

At least for the fandoms I’m requesting this year, my interests are all over the place – there’s no one specific fic that I’m after. Ensemble fic and character studies and atmospheric gen and porny shipfic are equally fulfilling. Pointless sweet fluff is just as excellent as fucked-up soul-crushing darkfic. I’ve provided a couple of fic ideas for each fandom, but if you want to go a different direction (or take a prompt and run with it), don’t limit yourself! In that vein, too, please go ahead and treat any requested characters as “or” requests. This gets a little more specific depending on the fandom/characters, but if you decide on an idea that only involves one of the characters I requested or that would involve several characters I didn’t specifically request, you don’t have to try to limit the non-requested characters’ screen time or shoehorn in the other requested character(s). These are all fandoms of my heart and there’s nothing I wouldn’t enjoy receiving for them!

…that being said, I do have a few general likes/dislikes that apply across all fandoms, so here they are.

likes:

hurt/comfort

significant physical contact and characters breaking the touch barrier (+ cuddling)

strong platonic friendships, especially between women or men and women

complicated but ultimately positive family relationships, including found or adopted families

food!

slightly offbeat domestic fic (for any value of “offbeat”)

reconciliation of different worldviews

AUs of all kinds (canon-divergence, groundhog day loops, modern, rule 63, soulmate tattoos, space, everyone-is-a-bird...I love seeing different interpretations of how characters’ dynamics might be influenced by changes in the world around them)

complicated slow-burn relationships

normal people trying to go about everyday life in the face of some huge conflict or problem

two people physically isolated from everyone else and having to deal with things together – on a similar note, stuck-in-a-blizzard-huddling-for-warmth and all its variants are very welcome

dnw:

non-canonical character death (anything dealing with canonical character death is awesome, though)

infidelity as a kink or as the primary focus of a story – cheating in a relationship is okay, but I’d rather it not become a fixation

unrequested crossovers

character or ship bashing

…and in case you go the porny route, please no A/B/O or extreme kinks (bestiality, vore, scat, etc.)
