I may have unfortunately defaulted (and that feels weird - even the one other time I defaulted on any exchange, I got a treat into the collection in the end) but I still got a lovely gift fic! And here it is. I asked for Janeway fic, and I got this great little piece, with her getting in an argument with her replicator. <3

1. I defaulted on Not For Prime Time. I know by now I shouldn't sign up for exchanges, excepting only Yuletide (because once a year come hell or high water to see how it goes is a good thing) and possbly Remix (because it works differently). But of course I love exchanges and it's hard to remember that they don't mix well with being ill even in the best circumstances. So I'm kicking myself for giving in and signing up, and also for defaulting on a really lovely assignment that I had a perfectly workable idea for, but I'm immediately a good deal less stressed. Bingos are fine, Runaway Tales, prompts, commentfests, but not exchanges and only some ficathons. I know this by now. *kicks self again*

(When I'm well enough, one day, sometime, never, I shall sign up for ALL THE EXCHANGES. And run some. And ficathons. All of them. Well, maybe, lol.)

2. While not doing NPT, I did quite a lot of family history (tidying, small bits of transcribing and typing up mostly, but more and more consistently than I've managed for six years), which is amazing. If I have been quiet lately, that was one of the reasons.

3. Also I wrote some more ficlets (while not writing my NPT fic, I know, I know. I should be able to do it; it's just never quite that simple). Two more for the meme, one for the Commentfest (it hasn't entirely ended yet):

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).
