Dear Purimgifts Author:

First of all, thank you so much for writing a story for me! Any fic in these fandoms would make me happy, so please just write what seems fun and interesting to you!

If it’s helpful, here are some things I like:

I like slash, gen and het equally—I’ll be as happy with a G story as I will with one that’s NC-17.

h/c is bulletproof for me, especially of the minor-injury/sick!fic/comfort!fic variety. Give character A the flu and have character B look after him/her and I’ll be yours for life.

If you do feel like writing porn, I’m quite partial to kink, if you can make it plausible for the characters. Any kind of sensation play/ pain play is great, as long as it’s RACK. Consent play and AMTDI are great too.

Other things I like: being in dubious battle; unexpected moments of empathy, compassion, tactile connection, courage, honor, competency.

If you are so inclined, I am very interested in explorations of Jewish faith and practice: how they affect a character’s life and relationships, the place of faith in a character’s identity.

I think the only things I really don’t like are mpreg, watersports and non-canonical character deaths.

All my fic is over here on AO3 if you’re curious: if I like to write it, I like to read it!

Homeland: I love the nuanced attention to faith in this series, and I would love a fic about Saul’s faith—either back story or how it fits into his relationships now, with Mira or Carrie for instance (I’d prefer if his relationship with Carrie was non-sexual or UST, but do as you see fit). I love Carrie, too, though, so if you want to write a Carrie-centric fic, that would be awesome.

X-Men: First Class: Kind of ditto, but what’s a Purim fic exchange for if not to explore canonically Jewish characters? Anything you want to write about how Erik’s Judaism affects his life would be wonderful. Any pairing, any rating is fine with me. Don’t worry, though: if we match on this and you have no desire to write about Erik, that’s fine. Just write as your muse dictates—the characters are all wonderful and I’m sure I’ll love it.

Hawaii Five-O: I would love a Kono-centric fic here, and maybe particularly a fic about her relationship to Hawaiian religion and traditions (we saw a bit of that in 2x07). I’d kinda love a fic about Kono defending her faith or traditional practices somehow. But yeah, if that doesn’t appeal, some good old Steve/Danny porn is good too.

Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol: I put this one down just because the characters and the fic are so much fun. And I can’t think of anybody more likely to meet an Evil Vizier. Ethan/Brandt and Benji/Brandt are equally fine with me, as is OT4 or gen team fic. A fic in which Jane saves the team would be wonderful!

Sherlock: See above—anything goes here (except I’m not that into Mycroft, especially in pairings). I have a thing for fic about Sherlock and Lestrade’s relationship (romantic or otherwise) before the advent of John. For this exchange last year I got a prompt for Jewish!Lestrade and have been writing fics in that series ever since. I’m not sure if it’s kosher, as it were, but you are very welcome to play in that playground if you’re so inclined. Heck, feel free to make it into a Lestrade/Sherlock/John threesome!

Most importantly, though, have fun, and know that I really appreciate the time and energy you’re taking to do this!
