Thank you for reading! I've set out a few suggestions per fandom, but I'm open to ODAO as long as you avoid my DNWs. I am AO3 as SlashMyDreams.

- D/s relationship dynamics
- A/B/O verse
- Pregnancy
- Christmas / other holiday themed fic

For the most part I prefer third person as a narrative voice. I tend to find it difficult to get into second-person narratives.

Il Gattopardo | The Leopard - Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa - Angelica Sedàra, Concetta Corbera

I’m interested in reading more about Concetta and Angelica. I would be very interested in seeing something shippy, but equally if you want to write something about them being good friends, I would be delighted with that too. My favourite part of the book was the last chapter, about the relics, when they are all older and have so many years of the past behind them and so seem to have grown closer together so that five days of separation are a long time.

I liked also the part about Angelica acquiring an undeserved reputation of being an art expert – I enjoy very much the ‘versions’ of a character that are built up through outside POVs. Similarly, I would enjoy a fic set earlier in the canon, when the two begin to spend more time together again once Tancredi develops an interest in Angelica and we are told that she comes around more often supposedly to see Concetta, or even in their earlier adolescence when Angelica was, as the Princess recalls, rather ugly and uncared-for and thirteen.

Partitions of Poland RPF - Any

I'd love a look at the changing interpersonal relationships here - perhaps something on Stanisław beginning to doubt Catherine as his hopes of reform are hindered. I would also love something warm and optimistic about them in that early time in St. Petersburg, whether you decide to play it straight or imbue it with an awareness of what follows, or something depicting Poniatowski longing for her following his departure.

I also find the relationship between him and Repnin interesting – of course with Russian interventions and the frustrations but at times also the co-operation in the sejm, but also with the personal angle: their personal affairs with Izabela Czartoryska, Repnin’s comments about Poniatowski’s dancing.

By all means feel free to focus on other characters/persons in this time period or any political events – one of the Confederations perhaps? I don’t mind unorthodox slants on historical events.

Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat - Damen, Laurent, Kallias

I’m very interested in future fic about the unification process and reconciling varying legal systems and taxes or differing cultural attitudes especially when neither can really be seen as ‘right’. Similarly I’d like to see something on the ‘common’ people – in particular about the situation in the disputed territories between the two countries and perhaps on how repressive the Akielon regime was at this time – we’re told, for example, that they enslaved members of the population, which was presumably much resented and perhaps even actively resisted. Presumably there might be some resistance to the unification process also and perhaps even more broadly to the general underlying principle of mostly arbitrary monarchical power (revolution? Republic!) I’d also like to read about the abolishment of slavery! – With the addendum that I feel uncomfortable with the attitudes of Erasmus and earlier Damen, and would prefer that the focus be on more critical views and less rosy attitudes - what happens to Kallias post-KR? Feel free to focus on the impact on others, with the exception that I do not ship Erasmus/Torveld and would therefore like the fic not to be about their relationship.

I would also love to read about one of the parents’ reactions to the Damen/Laurent marriage. Damen wonders towards the end of KG what Theomedes would have thought of Laurent, and at the Kingsmeet thinks that no matter how he might try to explain, Theomedes would not understand. I’m very interested in how this might play out! Certainly Theomedes would be horrified! Veretian voices in his halls! His son besotted! Even Makedon of the sensible views about Vere won over! Similarly what might Aleron make of Laurent and his love for Damen? Obviously I realise that canonically they’re dead, but AU in which Kastor poisons his father somewhat differently and so Theomedes spends the trilogy in a coma? Or in an AU in which they’re thrown back into the past and try to prevent the events of Marlas?

No need to include all the characters.

Thank you in advance for writing for me! My letter is not very long (I'm not very good at the squee part of fandom) and my ideas for individual fandoms really just suggestions. Frankly I struggle every year to write these, but I am not actually that picky, so as long as you avoid the few things I actively dislike, feel free to write whatever you want in any of these fandoms. Please don't take differences in length between fandoms to indicate my enthusiasm or lack thereof for that fandom, it's only that for some I have more ideas about things I would like to read, whereas for some I have no idea, sorry.

General likes:
Communication - both good and poor, though in the case of the latter please make it more complicated than something that could be solved so easily with only a few words which naturally would probably be said.
Grey morality

Please don't include:
D/s dynamics
AUs which significantly change the world presented – as in, canon divergence AUs are great, but please no such changes as US high school, café employees etc.
Christmas/other holiday themed

For the most part I prefer third person as a narrative voice, though I’m fine with first person if that is the style in the original text. However, I find it really difficult to get into second-person narratives.

Lynes and Mathey Series - Amy Griswold & Melissa Scott
I received two lovely fics for this last year, but I am always enthusiastic about reading more. I selected these two because I’d prefer the focus to be on their relationship, but I would love it if the others were also included! In particular, I would like to read more about further navigating of boundaries and feelings, or something from the viewpoint of one of Julian’s “acquaintances” on the paragon. I like Julian's awkwardness in expressing affection and that Ned understands rather than, as often happens, requiring a more open way of doing so.

O mnie się nie martw | Don't Worry About Me (TV)
I’d like to see relationships between the women here - in particular, any combination of F/F would be so very welcome! - but also I’d also be happy with friendly relations. I’d like some exploration of what happened with Laura and Tomek that led to the avoidance, though I did enjoy the ‘you’re still alive? walks away’ scene. If you’re up for that sort of thing, I’d love to have something involving a case or otherwise legal issues to be included. I find the children here adorable, so feel free also to include them, especially in relation to Marcin. I enjoy the Iga/Marcin relationship, but I would prefer that not to be the primary focus of a fic.

Partitions of Poland RPF
I'd love a look at the changing interpersonal relationships here, as all of these people were involved with at least one of the others at some point, especially considering how much feelings and dynamics changed. In particular, I like the impact of the political situations on people. I’m open to any interpretations of events.

Whyborne and Griffin - Jordan L. Hawk
I’d love to see something from Griffin’s POV from early on in the relationship (book 1), in particular I enjoyed the relationship insecurity in the books and also in the short story, so I’d love for that to be included. I would also like to see about the prospective reconciliation with his adoptive family and the difficulties of that.

Lalka | The Doll - Bolesław Prus
I would love to read about any of these characters! In particular, I would be interested in something more about events after Henryk Szlangbaum takes over the shop and his relations with Rzecki then. If you know something about this as a topic in general, I would enjoy something about Judaism, both religiously and socially/culturally – this is my exception to a general dislike of ‘holiday’ themed works. In the novel, I particularly enjoyed Rzecki’s political engagement, so I’d love something on that as well. Krzeszowska appears to be leading a rather dramatic life! What else is happening to her? Perhaps she can interact with Izabela? I have no preference as to POV with the exception that I feel that Wokulski’s views on Izabela are sufficiently covered by the book. Some exploration of her life following the split with Wokulski I would also enjoy, though I would prefer it not to focus on her becoming a nun.
