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 general guidance, or specific guidance about Killjoys and Galavant. If you'd like a friend's insight for my Critical Role feelings, Sovin is intimately familiar with them and would be happy to help you out.

General Preferences

Likes: HAPPY ENDINGS. 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 adore shippiness and romance, but if that's not your thing that's totally fine. I love just as much strong friendships and people who feel an intense bond with each other without it being romantic, so I'd be just as thrilled with friendfic, character studies, or other genfic. I have a 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 are some of my very favorite things, 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 relationship 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, though if I mention poly and that's not what you're into, please know that I don't tend to ship people poly unless I also ship every ship within it, so if I ask for A/B/C and you're only comfortable with A/C and B along as a friend, that is 100% fine. Additionally, if you're moved to write something explicit either way, I'm fine with as kinky or as vanilla as you care to write. 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...

Thank you again, author! I hope something in here caught your interest and was inspiring, but if not, or if you'd like more guidance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or Sovin or Nell. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
