How are you? Good? I hope so. Excited to write something magical? Awesome! I'm dying to read something glorious myself. This is going to be awesome! ♥
In general I am very hard to disappoint and am VERY enthusiastic about the things I love, and of course these things I requested are things I love--A LOT. So, this should be easy and fun for you.
First, I'll give you a bit about my likes in general and then I'll get into the nitty-gritty specifics. I like STORY and CHARACTER and character development. I like dialogue heavy stories and emotional turmoil stories and characters dealing-with-their-shit stories. I'm not too fussed with happily ever after, but am a sucker for hopeful endings, or endings that leave something to the imagination (without reading as unfinished).
I'm equally jazzed for witty dialogue and hijinks as I am in angst and working through trauma, so where ever your inspiration takes you. I also am a lover of fusions, AUs and crossovers as well as world building and character study. Like I said before, there is really very few ways you can disappointment me.
But I guess that leads into what I'm not really looking for... PWP (I mean sex is fine, lovely even, but it's got to have more than that, cool?), incest in anyway, sugary-sweet fluff (funny is great, happy is lovely, but I'd like some depth with my fun little happy story).
Basically, think of all the rest of this letter as helpful suggestions and nothing more. If you love the characters, are tender to them and weave them around a story, wrap them lovingly with language and consideration, I’ll be the happiest recip ever.
Hmmm. Now, what did I request again? Let's see.To Kill a Mockingbird
Atticus and Scout Finch
I love this book so very much! SO VERY!! And I know that I put Scout and Atticus, but it doesn't need to be both of them. And you can add anyone you want (especially Boo Radley, OMG, I love me some Boo!) but I'd like the story to feature either Scout or Atticus (or both).
Now, if you signed up for this in hope to write a story that encompasses both TKAM and GSAW let me tell you that I fully support this and would LOVE that. But also to tell you that I have not read GSAW. I want to, I really do, but I'm terrified. So if you want to write an in-between story, a story that would help ease me into taking the plunge to read the sequel, I would love you forever. But, if you too haven't read it, no worries, I'm very happy to get anything in this universe. Want some prompts? Canon through Atticus' eyes. Or something about the family before the story began. Maybe Atticus starts seeing someone and how does that affect the children? Or maybe Boo and Scout become some sort of pen pals? Scout takes it upon herself to befriend Boo in different ways and Atticus trying to stop her to no avail.Glass Family Saga - J. D. Salinger
Again, I put Buddy, but that doesn't mean all the others can't be involved as well. Buddy is just my favorite and I'd really like a story where he's the protagonist, not just the narrator or the piece-picker-upper. I'd really like a story where they all have to rally together on his behalf, either before or after all the Glass family canon. I know some people don't like kiddie fics, but I'd be fascinated to read a story about this family as children geniuses. How must it have been to be in the family, to raise that family? Maybe some Glass style shenanigans, or bonding... or both. Or maybe just a Buddy character study. I'll admit, it's been a really long since I've read these books--but back in the day, I read them ALOT-- and I'd really just like to revisit them for a while. ♥The Way (2010)
I'm pretty sure no one signed up to write this, so I'm pretty sure you're not here for this detail, so I'll just use this space to recommend highly this amazing movie
. And also to inform that it is now streaming on Netflix and Amazon... and if you were wondering, I would have ABSOLUTELY no problem with a RPF of this story and will point out to you while the father and son Estevez and Sheen were making this gorgeous movie, Charlie was having his very famous meltdown... Let that soak in... ♥Miranda (TV)
Miranda and Gary
Miranda♥Gary. I love them so. And yes, it seems as if their story is complete and they live happily ever after (and I am beyond happy about that) but that doesn't mean I don't want more of their shenanigans--just maybe without some of that last few episodes angst please. Does Gary actually get Miranda out of the country FINALLY? Do they take Stevie on their honeymoon? Do they ever have their two kids Cliff Richards and Richard Richards, or Orlando and Bloom? Really, any bit of these two would be just lovely. And I'd totally be up for a crossover/fusion or A/U with these guys, or maybe a pre-canon uni type thing.Northern Exposure
Ed, Chris and Joel
I just finished a complete rewatch of this series and am now ready to delve wholeheartedly into fic based on it. And while I love all the characters (well, most of them, Maurice skeeves me more and more as I get older), I'd really love something that focuses on any (or all) of the listed characters. I don't care if it's gen, het or slash, whose in a relationship with who, I just want to read about these quirky and crazy people. I love Joel's transformation throughout the series and wouldn't mind anything with him from any time period, though this time watching, I gotta say, I wish there was more of his time in the woods becoming one with Alaska. I'd love to see more of Ed and his obsession with movies--what would he think of modern movie making? Does he ever make his blockbuster? IF so, what does that do to him. And Chris, sweet crazy Chris. There is literally nothing you could do with that man that I wouldn't adore.
And though they weren't nommed so you can do with this what you want, or nothing at all, but I love, love, love beyond reason Marilyn and would love to see her featured some way in this--especially if you focus on Joel. I love them together. ♥ ♥ And again, I would be quite okay with crossover/fusions or A/Us.
Just go crazy!
And above all, HAVE FUN!
See you on the other side with a crap-ton of squee and devotion!
