meretricula: (fandom librarian)
Hi there! I've never done [ profile] trickortreatex before, so hopefully I'm doing this right. I'm really excited for Halloween this year, and I hope you are too! This post has some extra information about what I like/don't like, but standard disclaimer: if you prefer to just go from the prompts, you don't have to read any of this. I want you to write the story you want to write. If there is ever a question in your heart as to whether you should fulfill some nitpicking optional detail in my request or write the story you have dreamed of writing since you offered the fandom, go with the story of your dreams, because if you love writing it, I'm sure I'll love reading it! The purpose of this post is to make your life easier, not harder. Also, my prompts tend to be very shippy, but if we only matched on one character or you just aren't feeling the romance, that's totally fine! Write the character you signed up for, don't worry about the prompt.

(If you want even more information about me, which I don't think anyone would but I know some people like to read their recipient's blog, I'm meretricula everywhere -- AO3, LJ, DW, and Tumblr. I'm somewhat more active on Tumblr these days than anywhere else.)

Likes: Happiness. I want everybody to be happy or at least not overtly miserable at the end of the fic. They can suffer and be angsty in the beginning or middle but please please please let the ending be sunshine and rainbows or the promise of sunshine and rainbows on the not-too-distant horizon. I'm also happy to get a fic that's 100% fluffy sunshine and rainbows all the way through. I'm a big fan of tropes where characters have a lot of history between them -- friends to lovers, childhood sweethearts, best frenemies, sibling relationships, etc. -- and you'll see those popping up a lot in my prompts. Basically I'm ALL ABOUT THE FEELINGS. I'm not a big fan of porn for porn's sake but if you're happier writing about people expressing their feelings via sex, that's great too!

I also like: lots of background detail; tropes and cliches; subverted/inverted tropes and cliches; lots of dialogue; limited third person POV; canon settings, canon divergences AND alternate universes; food; competence; found families; mixed media/documentation fic.

Dislikes: major character death (as in, this character is gone and not coming back; death followed by resurrection or altered form of existence is fine so long as the character is still around); humiliation; intense angst; graphic violence and gore; noncon and dubcon; first and second person POV; AUs that change the nature of characters' backstory together (e.g. if two people have known each other since childhood I'd rather not have an AU where they meet for the first time as adults, but an AU where they meet under different circumstances but around the same point in their lives is fine).

Trick or Treat preference: well, I like happy stuff, so treats are good! But I also love love love stories with monsters and magic and the supernatural, so I'm 100% down for trick fic so long as it ends happily.

Fanfic/Fanart preference: I'm not a very visual person, so I generally prefer words over pictures.
