NPT Letter

Dear Prime Time Player,

I am so sorry this letter is a WIP. I promise to finish it by Friday!!

Thank you for writing a story for me! I am pretty easy to please and will almost certainly love any story in any of my requested fandoms which does not include any of my (admittedly optional) do-not-wants. Please do write something you will enjoy working on as well :)

I've included some prompts and things I like in case it helps you to have something to start from, but if you've got your own ideas please feel free to run with them! Optional details are always optional.

General notes: I don't have any triggers. I am fine with any rating from G to R. If you write a story that includes sex, I would prefer that sex not be the only element of your story. I am okay with holiday stories. I am not a huge fan of crossovers, especially when I am not familiar with all fandoms involved. I am okay with canon character death. I would be thrilled to receive fic in any canon I've requested.

Please do not include: Graphic descriptions of violence. Graphic descriptions of rape/non-con. Graphic descriptions of underage characters in sexual situations. Graphic descriptions of fires and/or fire-related traumas.

Things I generally like: Gen, femslash, het and slash. Complicated characters. Flawed characters. Found families. Threesomes that solve everything some things. Sex that isn't perfect. Polyamorous relationships. Asexual characters. Redemption arcs. Banter. Hijinks. Angst. Domesticity. Competence. Finding out how things work. The minutiae of everyday life. Kissing. Holding hands. Food. Characters working together to achieve something, especially if the people involved are or have been enemies. Consensual sex. Dubcon. Alternate universes. Tropes. World-building. Fake dating/marriage that leads to feelings. Fake dating/marriage that doesn't lead to feelings. Coming-of-age stories. Knitting. Cats.

Things I generally do not like: Fic mainly about pregnancy and/or babies. Character-bashing.

Things I am on the fence about: A/B/O and soulmark or soulbond 'verses. I do enjoy ones with lots of world-building and/or trope subversion.

Fandom: Ghostbusters (2016)
Relationship(s): Erin Gilbert/Abby Yates
Notes and optional prompts: I love how Abby and Erin bonded over being weird when they were in school, and how they wrote a book together, and how they work together as Ghostbusters despite their history, and how Erin freaking launches herself into an abyss to save Abby, and how Abby forgives Erin enough to give Erin a second chance. I love how passionate they are about science and the paranormal and helping people and doing their own thing in the face of opposition. (And let's be real I love how much Abby loves soup.)

I really dig that canon is about awesome ladies (and Kevin) being awesome together AND busting ghosts, so please no AUs.

Tell me more about how Erin and Abby met, and/or about how their friendship imploded. How did they conduct their early research? What are the challenges and rewards in their day-to-day lives? Do Abby and Erin try to write another book? How does that go and how do Patty and Holtzmann contribute? What happens when they all go on a road trip for work or for fun, whether it's to somewhere one of them has always wanted to go, or somewhere at least one of them never wants to go again?

If you want to write femslash, I love first kisses, first times, and how people in love negotiate their work and their love lives. I'm a sucker for a slow burn (though I acknowledge this can be hard to pull off in a thousand works). I like in-jokes and grand gestures and sex that that's fun not perfect. I like characters who like spending time with each other.


Fandom: The Good Wife
Relationship(s): Alicia Florrick & Finn Polmar, Will Gardner & Kalinda Sharma
Character(s): Elsbeth Tascioni
Notes and optional prompts: The Good Wife – I otp Alicia/Kalinda as much as I otp anything just FYI. I'm cool with low-key background Alicia/Will and/or Alicia/Finn and/or friends-with-benefits Kalinda/Will but it would be great if you could focus on whatever character or non-romantic/sexual relationship we match on. Things I appreciate about canon include drinking as a coping mechanism, humour as a coping mechanism, coping mechanisms in general, people being bosses at what they do, people being failboats at peopling, shifting and divided loyalties, people being to a certain extent ruthless and impractical glass offices.

If we match on Elsbeth Tascioni: I <3 Elsbeth a lot and would love something more about how she views the world whether from her perspective or someone else's. I'd rather fic about Elsbeth didn't concentrate too much on her romantic/sexual relationships with her ex-husband or with Kyle MacLachlan's character. It would be cool to see her applying her mad lawyering skills to a social event, or hanging out socially with some of the other characters. Or doing mad lawyering if that's what you want to do; I never don't want to see Elspeth doing some mad lawyering.

If we match on Will Gardner & Kalinda Sharma: I <3 Kalinda and Will being bros a lot. I think they're probably both in love with Alicia, really. Setting aside Alicia, I really like how they seem to be there for each other as friends a lot of the time. I love how they talk about things without talking about things. I like that they're both fierce and are low-key casual and have wry senses of humour. More about how they met would be interesting!

If we match on Alicia Florrick & Finn Polmar: I <3 Alicia and Finn being bros. They both really need friends at the point where they interact in canon. They have some great things that they do together that could be shippy but could also be friendshippy e.g. playing video games (from now until the end of time I will always want more Alicia and Finn playing

Fandom: Riverdale
Relationship(s): Cheryl Blossom & Josie McCoy, Hermione Lodge & Alice Cooper
Character(s): Valerie Brown
Notes and optional prompts: I love the women of Riverdale a lot and I'd love to see some of them take centre stage. I'd probably prefer fic set in the present or past to fic set far in the future, but surprise me. I love the over-the-top nature of canon and how much fun it is, even at its darkest. I appreciate how the characters are larger than life and full of a lot feelings about things and each other, feelings they don't always handle very well. I like it best when the characters make unexpected, hard-won genuine connections.

If we match on Valerie: I love how Valerie seems so grounded and self-assured; is she always like this? What made her who she is today? I'd love more about the events of canon from Valerie's pov, or what she's up to in her own life. I'd love to know more about how the Pussycats work too: it doesn't always seem like smooth sailing. Something about Valerie's personal relationship with her music would be cool, too.

If we match on Cheryl Blossom & Josie McCoy: Canon implies that they're friends and I am dying to know how this works as we never see much evidence of it. Something that draws out their similarities and differences could be cool. Are they ever vulnerable with each other? What kind of shenanigans do they get up to? Are they as close as they once were, and why or why not?

If we match on Hermione Lodge & Alice Cooper. Man. I did not sign up to have feelings about Alice Cooper but I sure am having a lot of them anyways. She's so awful expect, heartbreakingly, when she's not. I'm interesting in how Hermione negotiates taking care of her own life with taking care of other people she cares about, like Veronica. I'd really like something set when Alice and Hermione are in high school together: how did they interact, what did they clash over and what did they agree on? Or something set in the present, maybe not even something where they interact all that often but where they're both taking action in their own lives, and maybe interacting with their daughters too. Or maybe Alice and Hermione talk about Polly?

Fandom: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Relationship(s): Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso/Bodhi Rook, Galen Erso & Jyn Erso, Galen Erso/Lyra Erso, Lyra Erso & Jyn Erso
Notes and optional prompts: SPACE FAMILY. I love these misfits so, so much. Any relationship combination I've requested is a-ok with me. Basically I want to see everyone interact MORE. Everyone lives? Cool. Everyone dies but we see a couple of more moments here and there? Also cool. I am up for tragic AUs and happy AUs and all sorts of AUs really as long as the characters are recognisable as themselves. I love how Jyn comes to live outside herself, to find people and causes she believes deeply in. I love how Galen loves his family and how he does utterly mad and outrageous things to try to make life better for his family and his people. I love how Lyra is brave and reckless, but also a planner and a fighter. I love how Cassian has no illusions about anything but still hopes and plans for the future. I love how Bodhi takes a chance on the fate of the galaxy and on himself. I want these people to be gloriously happy, or gloriously tragic, or really, anything in between.  Prompts. Um. I like archivists and and secret, hidden communities, and people trying to build things together and finding joy in small things.

Fandom: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Relationship(s): Beverly Crusher/William Riker
Notes and optional prompts: I more or less otp Deanna Troi/Will Riker and/or Deanna Troi/whatever she wants but I have a secret soft spot for fic that pairs Beverly Crusher and Will Riker. Possibly because Beverly deserves all good things and something going on between her and Will could be uncomplicated and fun for them both. I could see them as having a friends-with-benefits thing going on at some point in the series. And then there's the episode where Will acts as host to the Trill Beverly is dating sooooo things definitely have the potential to become very, very complicated if that's what you prefer! If you go down this route it would be awesome if your fic acknowledged the consent issues inherent in the episode in some way. Beverly and Will have at least one hobby in common (acting) which could be an interesting jumping-off point. They're both invested in Wesley but it would be great if your fic didn't focus on Wesley as he's not one of my favourites. Things I like about canon include space exploration, crew poker games, the holodeck, the crew as family, visiting other planets, Q, weird things happening to the crew, random bouts of amnesia, random bouts of people working out together and gossiping and/or making out, and the crew being competent as hell in their chosen fields. I like when the characters have a sense of wonder about the galaxy. I like diplomatic missions and undercover-on-a-strange planet missions. I like that Riker likes cooking.

Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga
Relationship(s): Ekaterin Vorsoisson Vorkosigan/Ivan Vorpatri, Ekaterin Vorsoisson Vorkosigan & Ivan Vorpatril
Character(s): Ekaterin Vorsoisson Vorkosigan
Notes and optional prompts: I adore Ekaterin. She is resourceful and tenacious and protects herself and her loved ones.  She rises from the ashes of who she used to be and I think that's pretty cool. I am kind of not keen on Ekaterin/Miles as depicted in, say, Cryoburn. Miles is off gallivanting and leaving Ekaterin with so much on her plate including the care of all of those children?! I'd prefer that your fic not focus on Miles/Ekaterin, especially post-marriage. I love Ekaterin's determination and her drive and her sense of who she is, and how who she is changes due to time/circumstances/life experience. I like stories that explore the complexities of life on Barrayar for women. I like gardening. I like Nikki and Cordelia and Aral and Alys. I like Gregor. I enjoy fic that ships Ekaterin/Ivan Vorpatril: fic where they are both coming of age at the same time, and as adults, and where they're friends first, or are always only friends. What about Ekaterin taking a trip off-planet for fun, either by herself or with friends or a lover? Ekaterin chatting with Gregor, or Cordelia, or Alys? Ekaterin whilst being courted by Tien? (Ugh, Tien.) Ekaterin solves crime?

Best wishes,

YAY IT'S TIME FOR YULETIDE

Dear Yuletider,

Thank you for writing a story for me! I am pretty easy to please and will almost certainly love any story in any of my requested fandoms which does not include any of my (admittedly optional) do-not-wants. Please do write something you will enjoy working on as well :)

I've included some prompts and things I like in case it helps you to have something to start from, but if you've got your own ideas please feel free to run with them! One of my favourite things about Yuletide is all the happy surprises it contains.

General notes: I don't have any triggers. I am fine with any rating from G to R. If you write a story that includes sex, I would prefer that sex not be the only element of your story. I am okay with holiday stories. I am not a huge fan of crossovers, especially when I am not familiar with all fandoms involved. I would be thrilled to receive fic in any canon I've requested. (If we matched on something other than Carol or The Price of Salt, take heart. I requested both of these because I could and if I could do the same for any of my other fandoms believe me I would.)

Please do not include: Graphic descriptions of violence. Graphic descriptions of rape/non-con. Graphic descriptions of underage characters in sexual situations. Graphic descriptions of fires and/or fire-related traumas.

Things I generally like: Gen, femslash, het and slash. Complicated characters. Flawed characters. Found families. Threesomes that solve everything some things. Sex that isn't perfect. Polyamorous relationships. Asexual characters. Redemption arcs. Banter. Hijinks. Angst. Domesticity. Competence. Finding out how things work. The minutiae of everyday life. Kissing. Holding hands. Food. Characters working together to achieve something, especially if the people involved are or have been enemies. Consensual sex. Dubcon. Alternate universes. Worldbuilding. Fake dating/marriage that leads to feelings. Fake dating/marriage that doesn't lead to feelings. Coming-of-age stories. Knitting. Cats.

Things I generally do not like: Fic mainly about pregnancy and/or babies. Character-bashing. Earwigs.

Things I am on the fence about: A/B/O and soulmark 'verses. I do enjoy ones with lots of worldbuilding and/or trope subversion.

Fandom: Carol (2015)
Character(s): Carol Aird, Therese Belivet
Notes and optional prompts: I love how Carol and Therese run away and try to make a world where being themselves is good enough. What happens when the two of them try to make their relationship work once they're both back in New York? (Do they try, or do they talk themselves out of it?) How do they fix the damage caused by the time they weren't in contact with each other? How is their relationship the same, and different? How do they each get on with Abby; do the three of them become friends?

What does a lazy Saturday or Sunday at home look like? If they decide to live together, how do they go about making Carol's place home for both of them? Where do they go on dates? How do Carol and Therese continue to grow as individuals and how does this affect their relationship? What happens when one or both of them stop being so careful with the other? How does Therese's photography career progress? How does Carol get on in her job as a furniture buyer?

If you don't want to write post-canon fic, fic set before or during canon would also be very welcome!

I really like the setting and all the opportunities and complications it lends itself to, so please no AUs.

I would prefer fic that doesn't dwell on Harge or Richard. I am fine with femslash or gen.

I don't mind if book canon bleeds into movie fic but it would be great if the movie was used as a jumping-off point rather than the book. I realise this is a pretty vague request so any good-faith interpretations are fine! I love the book and the film equally, but my reading of book canon is that by the end the odds are stacked against Therese and Carol re-establishing and maintaining a romantic relationship. Whereas the film leaves me thinking that Carol and Therese have half a chance at stability and happiness together. I could believe that it all falls apart once they have to work at anything that's not sex, mind you, but I could also see them making it.

Fandom: Ghostbusters (2016)
Character(s): Abby Yates, Erin Gilbert
Notes and optional prompts:I love all of the Ghostbusters dearly but what I want to know more about at the moment is Abby and Erin's relationship, whether platonic or not. I ship them, but I also ship all permutations of Abby, Erin, Patty and Holtzmann so background relationships are fine as long as the focus of the fic is how Abby and Erin interact with each other. I would be just as happy with gen fic as I would be with femslash.

I love how Abby and Erin bonded over being weird when they were in school, and how they wrote a book together, and how they work together as Ghostbusters despite their history, and how Erin freaking launches herself into an abyss to save Abby, and how Abby forgives Erin enough to give Erin a second chance. I love how passionate they are about science and the paranormal and helping people and doing their own thing in the face of opposition. (And let's be real I love how much Abby loves soup.)

I really dig that canon is about awesome ladies (and Kevin) being awesome together AND busting ghosts, so please no AUs.

Tell me more about how Erin and Abby met, and/or about how their friendship imploded. How did they conduct their early research? What are the challenges and rewards in their day-to-day lives? Do Abby and Erin try to write another book? How does that go and how do Patty and Holtzmann contribute? What happens when they all go on a road trip for work or for fun, whether it's to somewhere one of them has always wanted to go, or somewhere at least one of them never wants to go again?

If you want to write femslash, I love first kisses, first times, and how people in love negotiate their work and their love lives. I'm a sucker for a slow burn (though I acknowledge this can be hard to pull off in a thousand works). I like in-jokes and grand gestures and sex that that's fun not perfect. I like characters who like spending time with each other.

Fandom: The Good Wife RPF
Character(s): Archie Panjabi, Julianna Margulies
Notes and optional prompts:Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi are talented and gorgeous; I loved watching them at work on The Good Wife and I would love fic that pairs them together again whether it's as colleagues or friends or lovers or enemies – or any and all of these.

If we match on this fandom and you want tell me a story about the so-called feud between Margulies and Panjabi that would be awesome. What really went down? Why all the secrecy? Feel free to be as serious or light-hearted as you wish. I would prefer no character-bashing please, and particularly not of either Margulies or Panjabi themselves. I don't know a lot about either woman (and would prefer the fic to hand-wave the existence any real-life partners, children etc.) so while well-researched fic never goes amiss, I'm just as happy for you to make stuff up. Alternatively, it could be fun to be convinced there absolutely was never any feud.

If making up stuff about feuds isn't your cup of tea, that is also awesome! I'm sad that The Good Wife is too big for Yuletide but what would help ease my sorrow is fic set during the show's run. Gen or femslash would be equally welcome. I like finding out about how things work so any peeks behind the scenes would be great: rehearsing for scenes, hanging around on set and between takes, the promotion circuit, award shows, parties, quiet moments away from all the hullabaloo – it's all good. How does Margulies deal with switching back and forth between producer and actor? How does Panjabi deal with moving countries for a job? How do the two women approach their characters and each other? What's their first meeting like? What happened the last time they saw each other? How does the fact that they spend so much time pretending to be other people affect their non-working relationship?

Bitter, bitter angst and the sweetest of saccharine fluff  (and all points in between) are equally welcome.

Fandom: Oxford Time Travel Universe - Connie Willis
Character(s): Polly Churchill, Merope Ward | Eileen O'Reilly
Notes and optional prompts: I would love to read more about Polly and Merope! I love that they are smart and brave and interested in the world. I love how resourceful Polly is and how Merope is scared but does stuff anyway. Gen and femslash are equally welcome here. Angst and fluff and all points in between are welcome. I am fine with canon character death.

I love that time-travelling historians are a thing and would prefer fic set in some part of the canon 'verse rather than an AU. I like Alf and Binnie. I like Dunworthy. While I like Colin, I don't especially ship him and Polly (they barely know each other).

I would love fic where Polly and Merope have to work together to solve a problem, big or small, whether they achieve their goal or not. Fic set in London during WWII would be great. Pre- or post-series fic would be great. How would one or the other, or both, cope in a different historical time period, or in their own time? Glimpses of Polly and Merope as undergraduates? Post-canon glimpses? London glimpses? Grocery shopping? A night on the town? Hijinks to do with Christmas presents and keeping secrets? Angsty and/or awkward hook-ups?

I forgot to nominate Mike but if you feel like pretending that I didn't, ridiculous and/or tragic love triangles and/or polyamory are also welcome. (I am fine with no Mike at all since he is not even in the tag set.)

I would like to see Merope and Polly as complicated people with richer inner lives than they may have in canon! But really I am pretty easy and would love any story you care to write about one or both of these characters.

Fandom: The Price of Salt - Patricia Highsmith
Character(s): Carol Aird, Abby Gerhard
Notes and optional prompts:I love Carol because she's determinedly making a new life out of the ashes of her old one, and I love that Abby is there to be a friend to Carol when she needs one. We don't know all that much about Abby and I would like to know more. How does she feel about all things canon? What are her hopes and dreams and motivations?

I'm interested in Abby and Carol together, whether it's about their friendship or about the time, pre-canon, when they were lovers. I am dying to know more about the furniture shop they owned and ran pre-canon, if this is something you're interested in exploring. How did being friends and/or lovers and business partners work for them? What happened to the business in the end?

Why did Carol and Abby break it off and how did it go? How did it start between them in the first place? If one of them were to plan the perfect day for the other, what would it look like and how would the other react? Abby and Carol, deciding to set up as girl (women) detectives? One of them teaching the other to shoot, or one of them wanting to learn to shoot and dragging the other along? Post-canon friends-with-benefits? Post-canon romance??

If Carol and Therese were to get back together post-canon and stay together, how would Therese and Abby interact? What do Carol and Abby have in common; what makes their friendship work?

I am fine with background and/or endgame Carol/Therese. I would prefer fic that doesn't dwell on Harge or Richard. I don't mind if movie canon bleeds into book fic but it would be great if book canon about Carol and Abby's relationship could be used as a jumping-off point rather than movie canon. 

Fandom: Shoujo Kakumei Utena | Revolutionary Girl Utena
Character(s): Kagee Shoujo | Shadow Play Girls
Notes and optional prompts:The Shadow Play Girls are creative and subversive and I would love to know more about them! What is their deal? What do they do when they're not performing? (Are they ever not performing?) I would love any story you care to write about them, whether it's gen, femslash, multi, or het. I love character studies and angst and also hijinks and wackiness. I would not say no to fluff either.

I'm fine with canon incest in this fandom Canon-level everything else is fine too: violence, weirdness, etc. I love this canon in all its surreal glory so I would prefer no AUs. If you wanted to play around with a first-person plural narrative voice that could be cool (but in no way is this expected).

How did A-ko, B-ko and C-ko meet? What made them decide to put on their plays and how does the division of labour work? What do they argue about and what do they all agree wholeheartedly about? What is an ordinary day like for any or all of them? How do they interact with other characters in canon? How would they handle an alien invasion? An underwater expedition? Auditions for new players? A bake sale or a jumble sale? Jury service? What do they do after Ohtori? Anything you care to write about the Shadow Play Girls would be very welcome indeed.

Thank you very much for writing me a story! I hope you have a fabulous Yuletide!

Best wishes,

Dear Yuletider,

Thank you for writing a story for me! I am pretty easy to please and will almost certainly love any story in any of my requested fandoms which does not include any of my (admittedly optional) do-not-wants. Please do write something you will enjoy working on as well :)

General notes: I don't have any triggers. I am fine with any rating from G to R. If you write a story that includes sex, I would prefer that sex not be the only element of your story. I am okay with holiday stories. I am not a huge fan of crossovers, especially when I am not familiar with all fandoms involved. I love all of the fandoms I've nominated (all my requests are unfilled repeats!) and I would be thrilled to receive fic in any fandom :)

Please do not include: Graphic descriptions of violence. Graphic descriptions of rape/non-con. Graphic descriptions of underage characters in sexual situations.

Things I generally like: Gen, femslash, het and slash. Complicated people. Flawed people. Found families. Threesomes that solve everything some things. Sex that isn't perfect. Redemption arcs. Banter. Hijinks. Angst. Domesticity. Competence. Finding out how things work. Kissing. Slices of life. Cities. Holding hands. Food. People working together to achieve something, especially if the people involved are or have been enemies. Consensual sex. Dubcon. Alternate universes. Worldbuiling. Fake dating/marriage that leads to feelings. Fake dating/marriage that doesn't lead to feelings. Knitting. Cats.

Things I generally do not like: Fic mainly about pregnancy and/or babies. Character-bashing. Earwigs.

Things I am on the fence about:A/B/O and soulmark 'verses. I have enjoyed ones with lots of interesting worldbuilding and/or trope subversion though.

Fandom: The Innocent Man (TV)
Character(s): Han Jae-hee
Notes: Oh, man, Han Jae-hee. I love that she tries to do what she thinks is the right thing. Sometimes. I would love a redemption story for Jae-hee, something about how she faces life post-series head-on and is happier. Hopeful fic would be lovely, but dark and/or depressing fic in the spirit of canon would be welcome as well. Torrid Kang Maru/Han Jae-hee where they destroy each other? Messed-up Han Jae-hee/Seo Eun-gi? (I love both of these women, so please don't write me fic that bashes either one of them.)
Optional prompts (continued): Kang Maru/Han Jae-hee/Seo Eun-gi that doesn't solve a single thing? (Or that somehow manages to work?) More about any of Jae-hee's canon relationships? Budding romance between Jae-hee and Park Joon-Ha? Jae-hee's days as a reporter?

Fandom: Oxford Time Travel Universe (series by Connie Willis)
Character(s): Polly Churchill, Merope Ward
Notes: Fic where they are trapped in London would be great! Or pre-series fic? Gen or femslash would be great. As would Polly/Merope/Mike, if you feel like writing that. (Bearing in mind that Mike was not actually nominated and so is the most optional of all optional details.) I don't really ship Polly/Colin, for whatever that information is worth. Feel free to refer to Merope as 'Eileen' if the circumstances seem to call for it. I am cool with canon character death. Please do write me fic about Polly and Eileen. How do they get along together/don't get along together? How they each cope with what they're faced with? What are Polly and Eileen's inner lives like? What are their hopes and dreams? What did they want to be when they grew up? One of the things I like about this series is the world-building (even if it is a bit rubbish) so please no AUs here.
Optional prompts (continued): Glimpses of Polly and Merope as undergraduates? Post-canon glimpses? London glimpses? Grocery shopping? A night on the town? Hijinks to do with Christmas presents and keeping secrets? Angsty and/or awkward hook-ups?

Fandom: Revolutionary Girl Utena (TV)
Character(s): Kiryuu Nanami
Notes: Nanami needs all the hugs in spite of being so obnoxious and also she needs to get the hell out of Ohtori. (But then doesn't everyone.) Incest as it exists in canon is fine. Canon-level everything else is fine too: violence, weirdness, etc. I could do without dwelling on fire/fires. (Thank you.)
Optional prompts: Coffeeshop AU? Library minions AU? Namami trying (and probably failing) to be actual friends with Juri or Utena? Nanami trying (and probably failing) to pull one over on Anthy? Nanami trying to become a Shadow-Play girl? Nanami writing a three-volume novel? Nanami, post-canon? Nanami, breaking my heart left, right and centre??

Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga
Character(s): Ekaterin Vorsoisson Vorkosigan
Notes: Canon needs more Ekaterin, am I right? I am kind of not keen on Ekaterin/Miles as depicted in, say, Cryoburn. Miles is off gallivanting and leaving Ekaterin with so much on her plate including the care of all of those children?! I'd prefer that your fic not focus on Miles/Ekaterin, especially post-marriage. I love Ekaterin's determination and her drive and her sense of who she is, even if who she is changes due to time/circumstances/life experience. I like stories that explore the complexities of life on Barrayar for women. I like gardening. I like Nikki and Cordelia and Aral and Alys. I like Gregor. I enjoy fic that ships Ekaterin/Ivan Vorpatril: fic where they are both coming of age at the same time, and as adults, and where they're friends first. I understand if you don't dig this pairing and don't wish to write it! However, if you want to write Ekaterin and Ivan, please do go for it :)
Optional prompts (continued): Ekaterin taking a trip off-planet for fun, either by herself or with friends or a lover? Ekaterin chatting with Gregor? Ekaterin whilst being courted by Tien? (Ugh, Tien.) Ekaterin solves crime?

Thank you very much for writing me a story! I hope you have a fabulous Yuletide!

Galentine's Day letter

Hello! This is a placeholder! Super quick info until I write a real letter: Gen or f/f for all is fine (if in doubt, go gen); please no incest (mentions of any canon incest is fine); please no cross-generational f/f; would prefer no PWP; see YT letter for more likes/dislikes/etc. Thank you in advance!

ETA my Galentine's Day letter. I am sorry this is a bit late! Please feel free to go beyond any of my suggested prompts: I've included them in case you want any guidance, but I am very open to other possibilities!

Dear Galentine's Day author,

Thank you for writing a story for me! I am pretty easy to please and will almost certainly love any story about any of my requested characters which does not include any of my do-not-wants. Please do write something you will enjoy working on as well :)

General notes: I don't have any triggers. I am fine with any rating from G to R. If you write a story that includes sex, I would prefer that sex not be the only element of your story.

Yuletide Letter

Dear Yuletider,

Thank you for writing a story for me! I am pretty easy to please and will almost certainly love any story in any of my requested fandoms which does not include any of my (admittedly optional) do-not-wants. Please do write something you will enjoy working on as well :)

General notes: I don't have any triggers. I am fine with any rating from G to R. If you write a story that includes sex, I would prefer that sex not be the only element of your story. I am okay with holiday stories. I am not a huge fan of crossovers, especially when I am not familiar with all fandoms involved. I love all of the fandoms I've nominated and I would be thrilled to receive fic in any fandom :)
