Dear Author,

First of all, thank you so much for being my writer! I'm going to ramble on a bit generally (probably a lot, actually), then try and write something about why I like these fandoms, and give some ideas I've had about possible stories, but feel free to ignore any or all of it if it's not helpful.

The general stuff...
I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

I usually like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!). I like to see the progression of a friendship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when their friendship is somewhat unexpected. How do established friendships deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

I'm particularly partial to humour in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.

I love epistolary fic - not necessarily just in the form of actual letters; diary entries or in a modern or future setting voicemail, emails, texts, blog posts, message board transcripts, viewscreens, Facebook or Twitter posts will work, in any combination.

I enjoy both plot- and character-driven stories. Plots that show off character are perfect – the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years. Back story, missing scene fic, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy.

Feel free to include characters that I didn't specifically ask for if they fit your story, but I'd prefer my requested character(s) to be the focus of the story.

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one – the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

One of my biggest squicks to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female).

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please. Things I don't like include deathfic (excluding those canons involving conflict, though I would prefer OC death rather than canon character death), torture, abuse, A/B/O, humiliation, and character bashing (except for canon villains!

Not exactly dislikes, but...
I'm not really familiar with daemons, so I'd prefer stories not feature this setting. If you really want to go with it, that's OK but you'll need to include a 'For Dummies' explanation :) Also, I tend to have a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.


Now the specific stuff (these requests are in no particular preference order, BTW)

Request 1: Coot Club - Arthur Ransome
Any Character

I'd love to know more about the Death and Glory boys, Joe, Bill and Pete - their backstory, home life, how they came to get involved with the rest of the Coot Club.

For Dick and Dorothea, backstory is an interest too. I'd love to know what sort of upbringing they had to end up with such unique personalities. It seems that their parents must have encouraged them in their interests.

For Tom, Port and Starboard, how they met, why and how they decided to start the Coot Club.

Gen only for this request, please.


Request 2: Deår Ladies
Any Character

I'm pretty much open to anything you care to write here. Something that emphasizes the ladies' personalities would be great, maybe through the eye of the other inhabitants of Stackton Tressel.

Gen only for this request, please.


Request 3: The Hundred and One Dalmatians - Dodie Smith
Any Character

Backstory for Sir Charles and the Spaniel.

How the friendship between the White Persian Cat and Pussy Willow came about, and what they get up to together.

How/why the Colonel and Pussy Willow joined forces.

The Staffordshire - a day in the life (his pets are welcome to appear and be bowled over non-stop if required).

Gen only for this request, please.


Request 4: The Persuaders
group: Brett Sinclair & Danny Wilde
group: Brett Sinclair/Danny Wilde

I love this show for the humour, and also the friendship between two characters who have come from such different backgrounds yet ended up with the same lifestyle. I'd love a character study-type fic which compares and contrasts their similarities and differences. I'd love a story about their friendship - lthough they often behave as if they're rivals, it's obvious they mean a lot to each other. I'd love a fic where one is in peril and the other has to come to his rescue, or maybe they rescue each other - a situation where they actually have to admit how much they care for each other.

Whatever story you tell, I'd love a humourous take on it.

For this fandom I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. If you're considering writing porn, that's wonderful. If you don't want to, that's fine too.

Likes and squicks:
In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and vanilla, and all that comes with that - visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

Kinkier stuff is more than ok, too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, exhibitionism, cross-dressing and erotic spanking. I can also go for mild BDSM (not lifestyle; easily slipping into and out of it is fun, particularly with a humourous slant), light bondage/restraints, public sex/sex where there is a risk of being caught, wax play, figging and toys.

Squicks are scat, watersports, blood (in a sex context; blood in the course of a day's work is ok), humiliation, lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality.


Request 5: Terrahawks
Any Character

I loved the tongue-in-cheek/over-the-top atmosphere of this canon.

As with Dear Ladies, I'm pretty much open to anything you care to write. Backstory for any of the characters, their relationships, what makes Zelda and her cohorts tick - maybe a retelling of one of the episodes from Zelda's point of view. As a fan of 'It Ain't Half Hot, Mum' I was particularly taken by Windsor Davies' voiceover for Sergeant Major Zero, so a fic focusing on him or all of the Zeroids would be loved.

Gen only for this request, please.


Thank you once again, and I'll love to read anything you want to write!
