Hello and happy holiday season! Thanks for writing for me. <3 Here are some things to hopefully make things easier on you, copied almost verbatim from last year's note because my tastes don't change much. Take all the following with a grain of salt, because any fic with the fandom/character will make me incredibly happy.
Nifty things: I prefer gen/friendship or non-explicit pairings, love actiony plot- or character-driven work, and have huge sucker buttons for crossovers/AUs, competence, and catharsis. Backstory details, missing scenes and motivation introspection are also amazing. I adore the Work For Your Happy Ending trope and enjoy hurt/comfort, deepening relationships, fluff, snarky banter, and taking ridiculous premises and turning it into something that makes sense.
For dislikes: I have issues with reading downer endings, horror, gore, political commentary, awkward/embarrasing situations, and character death. This won't apply to most requests, but I'm also not interested in incest, sex, or any non-consensual situation. Unless it's story-dependent, I can do without prejudice of any sort. Lastly, not a fan of first or second person POV.
If you want some further sources on what I read and write, I have a fanfiction.net profile and a tumblr — my long-defunct livejournal (dead except for this annual letter) is absurdly out of date and my AO3 page doesn’t have everything.
Again, thanks for undertaking to give me a lovely fandom present, and I hope you're just as lucky! For convenience I have my prompts below.
(This is the fandom that Wren Truesong tempted me into Yuletide for back in 2013, and it's been my primary fandom since 2006. As a four volume manga series currently incomplete with ongoing guest appearances in the much larger Detective Conan manga, all of it has been scanlated by fans and is still floating around the net. Phantom Thieves, Detectives, and Stage Magic, oh my.)
(CT was the first video game I every played myself, and the Zeal sibs forever hold a small piece of my heart. They both deserved better, and I always hope for stories that give them, if not a happy ending, at least some peace.)
Fandom: Perfume (Band)
Prompt: So I'm currently a bit obsessed with Spending All My Time and Pick Me Up. I'd love a fic about either one—how do the girls finally manage to escape from their boarding school/lab? Or what happened to the mannequin doubles after the escapes happen? Heck, ARE the SAMT girls somehow the mannequins, having gone from one trap to another? Are the dance moves actually a private sign language? If you could write anything about either music video plot, whether prequel, sequel, or mid-plot expansion, I will love to read it.
