I’m so sorry for the late letter! If you’ve already started something, and it doesn’t intersect with these prompts/ideas, don’t worry about it--just go with your idea!

In any case, 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! I saw this phrase in someone’s dear author letter once, and it perfectly expresses my feelings: If you come to a place where you think you can either write a good story or make me happy, write a good story.

If it’s helpful, here are some things about my general preferences:

I like slash, gen and het equally (I tend to read less F/F, but when it's right for the characters I enjoy it)—I’ll be as happy with a G story as I will with one that’s NC-17—same goes for anything in between.

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, including blood, guns and knives,as long as it’s RACK. I have a soft spot for AMTDI and fuck-or-die fic.

If it's something you're interested in, I like fic that explores altered mental states, dissociation and the effects of PTSD.

I love crossovers, so if for some reason we’ve matched on more than one fandom, feel free to mix and match. I don’t much care for AUs, unless it’s in the service of a crossover.

Other things: being in dubious battle; unexpected moments of empathy; compassion; connection; courage; honor; competency--but also moments of uncertainty and failure.

Things I’d rather not read: mpreg; watersports; a/b/o fic; character deaths that aren’t part of canon; infidelity; kid!fic; and fluffy animal!fic.

On theory that one writes what one likes, here's my fic on AO3

Optional prompts in alphabetical order

City of Stairs

I really enjoyed this novel and its complex world-building. Shara and Sigrud are the nominated characters, and anything about them, either separately or together, would make me happy: a case fic, sometime before the events of the novel, perhaps when they were still getting to know each other would be great; or some downtime, when they’ve gotten to know each other better, would be interesting, too.

Imperial Radch

An open request, because I feel that if you offered to write this difficult universe you should be able to write whatever characters and situation appeals to you! Though I’ll admit that after reading both books I still feel more engaged by the strong relationships of Ancillary Justice--between Breq and Seivarden and between Justice of Toren and Lieutenant Awn—than to those in the second book, but I’m very willing to be convinced. Tisarwat is an especially intriguing character, and I’d be really interested in a piece from her perspective, letting us in on what goes on inside her head. I’d also be delighted with a story about Breq or Seivarden (or Awn) alone, perhaps set before the events of AJ (One Esk’s discovery of songs on XXX has always interested me, or Seivarden’s descent into addiction). If you really wanted to write id!fic for me, I’d love a story about Breq recognizing Seivarden’s feelings for her, and reciprocating them, but I understand if you feel that would be unlikely or undesireable. I’m also curious about what it would be like for any of the characters to have to get by in a culture that put a lot of emphasis on gender roles. I love the “distributed subjectivity” of the books—being able to see things from multiple perspectives through (and of) technology—so if you could work that into a story, that would be cool, too, but no worries if not.

Raven Cycle

Once again, I’m not picky! I think what I like most about the series is the intimacy between Gansey, Ronan, Blue and Adam—more than individual pairings, probably, though I have no objection to Adam/Ronan if that’s the way you want to go. I’m always curious about Gansey-Ronan before the others came onto the scene, however, so fic about their friendship pre-series would be great (I’m open to Gansey/Ronan, too!). How did Ronan find out about Gansey’s bee allergy, for instance? I love Gansey’s intense sense of responsibility for his friends, and would love fic where they have to take care of him for a change. I'm also intrigued by post-series fic, though I'd rather have the characters dealing with sad outcomes than any kind of fix-it fic.

Rivers of London

Yet another really open request. What I like best about the books are the descriptions of London’s history and its heterogeneous present, so anything having to do with that would be great. I love crossover fic in this fandom, so if we’ve matched on more than one fandom here, that would be really cool. I like Peter/Beverly a lot, so if you want to speculate about what they’re getting up to after Foxglove Summer, I’d be interested in reading that, though I ship Peter/Nightingale, too. I’d enjoy a fic just about the Rivers, too—maybe something from their childhoods.

Thank you!
