Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for writing for me! I am so excited to see what you come up with, and I want to say that aside from anything that I say below, so long as you don't hit any of my really strong dislikes, I am pretty much guaranteed to love whatever you write. I am very easy to please, and I'm sure I'll love whatever you do!

Also, I have a terrible time thinking up prompts off the cuff, I freeze up and get terrible writer's block, so please don't hesitate to write something that isn't listed here. If you want a little more information about anything, you can always drop by my tumblr askbox and inquire. I always have anon turned on, but if you'd rather I be surprised, Nell knows me very well and would be happy to give you some guidance.

General Preferences

Likes: Happy endings, please. I don't mind angst or heartbreak along the way (at all, I thing some angst can make a happy ending even more satisfying!), but please please, an ending that is hopeful at the very least. I love love love shippiness and romance, but if that's not your thing I'd be super happy with friendfic or character studies or other genfic as well. I do really really love strong friendships and people who feel an intense bond with each other without it being romantic. I have a huge, huge choice kink -- write me a fic about choosing to be together, choosing to love each other (romantically or not) and I will love you forever. I love people being competent and clever, wit, banter, strong fabulous ladies (and the men -- or women -- who watch them be their fabulous selves with hearts in their eyes). I love tropes, and AUs of all flavors, but I am always impressed by a great canonfic, too! I love hurt/comfort and UST, first times and developing relationships and getting-together fics, fake married or pretend married or marriage of convenience. I love fairy tale or mythology AUs. If you're inclined to write something shippy, I adore smut, though if you're uncomfortable or uninterested in writing something explicit, I find a good kissing scene to be hugely satisfying as well. I love a good threesome or other poly dynamics, and if you do go for smut, I'm fine with as kinky or as vanilla as you care to make it. On the kink side, though, I would prefer no watersports, scat, or humiliation.

Dislikes: Sad endings, major character death, non-con, infidelity, abusive relationships. Don't feel the need to avoid these things if they happen in canon, but I'd prefer they not be introduced where they don't already exist, and that they not be the focus of the fic either way.

Now for the specifics...

How to Get Away With Murder )
Sleepy Hollow )

The Quest )

Thank you so much again, author! I hope this letter has been helpful, and I'm sorry if I didn't get specific enough with my prompts for you. If you'd like more, or if you'd like any sort of guidance at all, please don't hesitate to reach out to either me or Nell, we'd both be more than happy to help.
