Dear Hetswap Author,

Welcome! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you write for one of my favourite pairings and I hope you enjoy your assignment.

I shall try to keep this to a sensible length, but I have a history of waffling too much in these things, so bear with me! I hope it will be useful, but you should ignore most things that aren't my likes/dislikes/specific requests if not. You can see my other fic exchange letters at my dear author tag.

Dear Yuletide Writer,

You share a tiny fandom with me, so that makes you a person of taste and awesomeness as far as I'm concerned and I hope that you have fun writing for me.

I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read, so please, write that story. If you are the sort of person who likes a concise letter and a free hand, just go for what you have in mind. The extra details are for souls like me who want them. Do not attempt to give me everything below in one fic; you'd do yourself an injury. If anything seems contradictory, it's mostly because I like all sorts of different things at different times in different fandoms.

Dear Prime Time Player,

I have a terrible tendency to waffle in these Dear Author letters, so let it be said that I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read. If you're the sort of person who likes a concise letter and a free hand, just go for what you have in mind as long as you at least try to avoid any pet hates listed here. All the extra details & prompts are for souls like me who might want them. Do not attempt to give me everything below in one fic; you'd do yourself an injury. If anything seems contradictory, it's mostly because I like different things at different times in different fandoms.


Likes: Humour, missing adventures, friendships, hurt/comfort, fantasy, history, mysteries, ghosts, plot, casefic, crossovers, gen, het, femslash. I do enjoy mild shippiness, and I adore reading about the subtleties, interactions and differing dynamics of relationships of all kinds between people/groups. (This is hard. I like lots of things.)

Dislikes: graphic horror/violence, explicit pr0n, PWP, sugary sentimentality, incest, rape, or unending angst without hope. I do like some AUs on occasion, but in general for me adding fantastical elements to a mundane fandom is fine, turning a fantasy/sf fandom mundane not so much, and I tend not to be into fusions. I'm not keen on unexpected (non-canonical) character death, generally (although it will be more okay in something like Spooks or B7 than happier fandoms). If I love a fandom, I tend to love most if not all of it, so it's really best to avoid any character bashing or assumptions that canon always needs fixing. If I have any pet fixits I'd like, I'll mention it below. I don't have any triggers, though, so please don't panic, and I can absolutely take some of these things if that's what the fic needs.

In short, please don't worry, I like lots of different things and am sure I will enjoy your fic. I hope you also have fun writing (and many apologies if anything in this letter is making you tear out your hair).

[Regular flisters, this is just my annual far too long and incoherent Yuletide letter; feel free to wisely pass on by!]

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Firstly, you share a tiny fandom with me, so that makes you a person of taste and awesomeness as far as I'm concerned and I hope that you have fun writing for me.

I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read, so please, write that story. If you are the sort of person who likes a concise letter and a free hand, just go for what you have in mind. All the extra details are for souls like me who want them.

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Firstly, you're ready to attempt to write something for me and you share a tiny fandom with me, so that makes you pretty awesome in my eyes - thank you, dear writer!

Nothing to see here, except my annual ridiculously epic Yuletide Letter:

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Firstly, thank you! You are ready to attempt to write something for me - and you share a tiny fandom with me. ♥

I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read, so please, write that. In fact, for several of these requests, what I want most of all is just to see what you would write in these worlds. So, if you are the sort of person who likes a concise letter and a free hand, please, just go for what you have in mind. All the extra details are for souls like me who want them. Do not attempt to give me everything below in one fic; you'd do yourself an injury. If anything seems contradictory, it's mostly because I like all sorts of different things at different times in different fandoms. So, if you've got that burning idea, go write it. I'm sure I will love it.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler,

Welcome! If you're here, given what I've requested, I like you already. Write me something for one of the below books and you can't go wrong, basically. I'm very excited about the idea of fic for any of them - I think only one of them has any fic in existence.

More details follow, but I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read, so please, write that. In fact, for 4 out of 6 of these requests, what I want most of all is just to see what you would write in these worlds.

I tend not to read explicit fic as a rule, and especially for some of these, but whatever you feel the story needs, really. I don't need for everything to be angsty, neither do I want a forced happy ending. And I'm sure you'd never character-bash, my other main dislike - I tend to enjoy all the characters in my fandoms!

(If you want to know more about my fic likes/dislikes etc. my last Yuletide letter is here, in which I waffled far too much about such things.)

Likes etc and request details )
