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. I love crossovers and fusions, but I’m not partial to AUs (unless they involve changing the era of one fandom so that characters can meet characters from another fandom).

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.

Other things I like: being in dubious battle; unexpected moments of empathy and compassion; tactile connections; altered states of consciousness; courage; honor; and questions of leadership and responsibility.

If you’re so inclined, I am very interested in explorations of faith and practice: how they affect a character’s life and relationships, and the place of faith in a character’s identity (I guess specifically Judaism for this exchange, but really all faiths).

I think the only things I don’t care for are mpreg, a/b/o dynamics, 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!

I threw in a lot of fandoms this year! Here are some more detailed descriptions/prompts—all optional, of course!

Defiance: I’ve wanted fic about the 2009 movie about the Bielski Partisans for years—what could be better than Daniel Craig, Live Schrieber and Jamie Bell as three freedom-fighting Jewish brothers? The movie itself is kind of a fictionalization of Nechama Tec’s history of the Bielski group, smoothing over some of the awkward bits (like Tuvia Bielski’s womanizing). The movie is streaming on Amazon Prime right now, so I figured this would be a good time to actually request fic for it. Anything would be great—slice of life moments in the forest, especially (no incest, though, please).

Edge of Tomorrow: This movie was an unexpected pleasure! And Rita is an amazing character—any fic about her would be lovely! I think she could certainly be Jewish, but no need to make her so.

Endeavour and The Hour: I lumped these two together because they take place in roughly the same era. The Hour clearly has strong female characters—and I’d love any fic about Bel, Lix, and especially Marnie—but I’d also love fic about Endeavour’s Monica. The Hour’s first season was about the Suez Crisis—I’d love to see the team’s response to other issues involving Israel.

The Honourable Woman: I was mesmerized by this show, and I’m fascinated by all the women in it—Nessa, Atika, Julia, Monica, Rachel. Ephra’s perspective on things would be interesting, too. I’d be delighted with a story about Nessa only, Atika only, or about their relationship, whether you see it as primarily romantic/sexual or more adversarial (or both). The intimacy of Nessa and Atika’s time in captivity together, whether sexual or not, with all its hidden layers and surprising revelations really interests me, but if you want to write something about their lives afterwards, that’s good, too. This canon calls out for darker fic, and I’m absolutely fine with explorations of the canonical non-con (and its effects on Nessa) and all the gaslighting/intimate deception. I guess I’m particularly interested in Nessa’s relationship to her body—after rape, after pregnancy—and to her carefully chosen and laid out clothes. The show didn’t have much to say about religion (as opposed to nationalism), but if you want to explore that for either character, it would be cool. Really, anything you wanted to write in this fandom would delight me!

Rivers of London: I love all the women characters in these books, and would love to read more about any of them (human and not-so-human). I’m very intrigued by Varvara and her backstory in Russia, so something along those lines would be great. I really enjoy crossover fic in this fandom, so if there’s a fandom you know I know that you’d like to cross with this one, go ahead! Plus, with it would be easy to imagine a story set in the world of the books about Jewish London, or Jews in London—a golem perhaps, or other kinds of Kabbalistic magic. >. (nb: I haven’t read Foxglove Summer , yet, though I may have by March).

X-Men (movies): 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.

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