Dear Trick or Treat Exchange Writer

Dear Trick or Treat Exchange writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! If you'd like to stalk me during Trick or Treat Exchange or want to ask me a question/for clarification, I mainly hang around tumblr besides here. On my AO3 you can see the fics I've bookmarked if that helps give you ideas or in figuring out the things I like, or you can check out my fic rec masterlist (still in progress) that may be easier to maneuver.

All of this is totally optional, but I know a lot of the time it helps to have some direction to go in, so I've included some likes, dislikes, prompts, and squee for your inspiration. Include whatever you like or none if nothing I mention suits your fancy! Go wild!

In General
Tbh, I'm really easy. I will read pretty much anything and my likes run the gammut from "totally normal" to "rare and kind of bizarre" to "probably squicks a lot of people." So whatever you can come up with, chances are good that I'll like it! If it's something not listed under dislikes, then feel free to give it a try if you like, even if it's not one of my specific likes. I'm good with any ratings and I'm caught up on everything except Ms. Marvel, so no need to worry about spoilers.

General: fluff, AUs (coffee shop, college, high school, supernatural creatures, thieves/con artists, whatever ya got I'll probably love it), smut, pining, fake/pretend relationships, antagonistic relationships that turn into love, intelligent characters, kid fic (them as kids or them having kids, mpreg), characters suddenly realizing they've been in love all along, domesticity/family, communication by snark, codependent friendships, get togethers, soulmates, adoptive parent-child relationships, queer/trans/genderqueer/etc. characters, magic, steampunk, road trips, tattoos/piercings

Porn: intelligence kink, language kink, competency kink, breeding kink, A/B/O verse, BDSM (especially aftercare), rimming, tentacles, double penetration, sloppy seconds, dubcon/noncon, first times, dirty talk, xeno, chub love, wing kink, D/S, bestiality (sentient/partly human or not)

Seasonal: horror, creepiness, murder, general mayhem, dark fic, all things pumpkin, scarves and layers, weather, body horror, ghosts, werewolves, sea monsters, psychological horror, monsters, Halloween, hauntings, candy, costumes, bonfires, witches

General: major character death (see caveats below), 1st and 2nd person POV, crossovers (fusions with Harry Potter or The Sentinel or Leverage or something like that are fine, I'm just not a huge fan of the meeting the other characters thing), cancer fic, abuse in main pairings, infidelity, animal death/torture, bashing female characters

Porn: scat, vomit, humiliation, vore, amputation kink

Seasonal: insects, zombies (reannimation/ressurection is fine, just rather not have zombie apocalypse or bumbling/rotting zombies)

I'll try not to put particular emphasis on any of them as I'd love to get fic for whatever you feel most comfortable writing, so how much description or squeeing I do has no bearing on how much I want that fandom or character! Gen or ship fic is totally fine and I've listed my preferred ships below. For any of these, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like.

The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth - Cottia, Esca Mac Cunoval, Marcus Flavius Aquila, Seal Prince
I loved both the movie and book for this even though I'm not usually drawn to (pseudo-)historical fandoms. I can't say that I have a favorite character, but I just really loved the relationships between the characters and the adventure and action. I'd love to see more of Esca and Marcus' search for the Eagle or something after they return home. Do they go their separate ways? Do they rebuild Marcus' family farm? I'm also really interested in their time with the Seal people and it would be great to see more interactions between them and slave!Marcus or doctor!Marcus. Also, just more Cottia in general, especially what she was doing while Esca and Marcus were on their quest. I'm fine with canon Seal Prince death or AU major character death where Marcus dies while Esca gets help while they're on the run from the Seal people.

Ships: Esca/Marcus, Cottia/Esca/Marcus, Esca/Seal Prince, Esca/Marcus/Seal Prince, Marcus/Seal Prince, Liathan/Marcus, Lutorius/Marcus

Prompts: Cottia runs away to join Esca and Marcus on their search for the Eagle. The Seal people have a secret: they are really selkies. As a sign of good faith, Esca must (sexually) share Marcus with the Seal Prince.

The Following - Joe Carroll, Ryan Hardy
I love this show, especially more of the beginning where everything was so much more creepy and symbolic and people were dying left and right. Joe's cult is fascinating and I'd love to see more of him gathering his flock and interacting with them, especially Emma, Mandy, and Roderick. His obsession with Ryan is even more fascinating, even more so in the last season when his only desire seems to be to see Ryan one last time before he dies. Ryan is interesting because he's so impulsive and his alcoholism definitely makes a huge impact. It would be great to see him interacting with Max or Mike, or more in depth about his addiction, especially if he goes downhill post-s3. I'd love to see more psychological horror or gaslighting, murder, and general creepiness. Though I'd definitely not say no to fluff either! Canon Joe death is fine (but so is fix it... maybe the executioner was in on it and Joe pops up in Ryan's life again?), and I'd be ok with either of them dying as long as it's one of them killing the other.

Ships: Joe/Ryan, Emma/Joe, Claire/Joe/Ryan

Prompts: Ryan joins Joe on a killing spree. Joe and Ryan were soulmates, so when Joe dies, Ryan feels it. They live happily (or not so happily) ever after at the mansion with Joe's followers.

Hannibal - Abigail Hobbs, Alana Bloom, Bedelia Du Maurier, Beverly Katz, Hannibal Lecter, Margot Verger, Will Graham
This show kind of ate my soul. I love the aesthetic of it and the characters and how gorey it is without being too over the top or ridiculous. And so much room for psychological horror and gaslighting! I'm perfectly fine with anything from super fluff to over canon levels of horror and gore, though I'm especially fond of the creepy and fucked-up-but-somehow-still-working relationships. This is one of the only fandoms I'd be ok with major character death, specifically Hannibal and Will, as long as it's one of them killing the other. Beverly was one of my favorites and I'm so sad she's gone. I really love her friendship with Will and how good she is at her job. I'd love to see more of her and Will interacting outside of crime scenes and the lab because he really needs a friend, especially one that's not a psychiatrist. Abigail is really fascinating to me because I've never really been sure how complicit in or aware of all the crimes around her she's been. The flashback in s3 just made me want to know more about what she was thinking and feeling and about her relationship with Hannibal, if she really sees him as a pseudo-dad or if she's playing a role. I'd love to see fic set during that time, but anything before that or an AU would be great as well. Bedelia's similarly interesting because she explicitly knows what Hannial is and goes to Europe with him anyway. AUs where Beverly and/or Abigail don't die are especially appreciated. I'd rather not have any Freddie or Jack.

Ships: Hannibal/Will, Alana/Hannibal/Will, Bedelia/Hannibal/Will, Alana/Margot, Alana/Beverly, Molly/Will, Hannibal/Molly/Will

Prompts: Beverly and Will just hanging out away from all the blood and murder of their every day. Abigail survives and goes to find Hannibal in Europe on her own. AU where Abigail is really Hannibal's daughter.

Jurassic Park - Lex Murphy, T-Rex
This franchise has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. What's not to like about dinosaurs and science and theme parks and adventure? (Well, I wasn't so pleased with the treatment of female characters in Jurassic World, but that's another thing altogether.) I really like Lex as a character and I'd love to see so much more of her! Show me what she does after Jurassic Park. Does she have nightmares of what she went through? Does she become a world class computer programmer or hacker? Does she join anti- or pro- genetically modified dinosaur organizations? Does she keep up with any of the other survivors? How did she feel about Jurassic World? An AU where she works at Jurassic World, maybe with her in charge of the park or the computer systems, would be fantastic. For T-Rex, I'm honestly just interested in seeing what someone could come up with for her. I'd love to see something about what happens when they return to build Jurassic World or about her chilling with the surviving raptor(s) after the park is abandoned again. Also, Lex and T-Rex both in a fic (as preditor/prey as long as Lex survives, somehow being friends, even romantically if you can swing it) would be so awesome.

Ships: none in particular. Lex/OC, Kelly/Lex, or Claire/Lex if you wanna ship I guess

Prompts: Haunted by memories of Jurassic Park, Lex goes back to Isla Nublar when she's older. Leverage AU where Lex is the hacker. T-Rex exploring the remains of Jurassic World.

Justice League & Justice League Unlimited - Helena Bertinelli, Shayera Hol, The Question
Imo, superhero fandoms really lend themselves to the creepy and disturbing because it's so easy to cross the line when there's already so much violence and magic/powers and general weirdness. I'd love to see something that explores that if you want to go in that direction, and I'm equally ok with lots of fluff or sex. Helena is one of my favorite DC characters and I'd love something about her fighting crime and making it outside of the Justice League. I absolutely loved her and Vic, so something about them getting together or navigating through all the bumps in their relationship, especially with Vic's paranoia and Helena's stubbonness, would be great. I really like that their relationship isn't really typical, but that they work out anyway. I somehow also got really attached to Shayera. I'm really interested in the time when she was with Doctor Fate and dealing with her feelings of betraying both her people and her team.

Ships: Helena/Vic, John/Shayera, John/Mari/Shayera

Prompts: Helena and Vic start heroing together on the side, leading to friction with the League. Cop AU where Helena, Vic, and/or Shayera are detectives. Shayera was pregnant when the Thangarians came to Earth, but she never told John so she ends up having the baby while staying with Doctor Fate.

Marvel 616 - Billy Kaplan, Kamala Khan, Teddy Altman, Tommy Shepherd
I decided to go with this fandom instead of just Young Avengers because I really wanted Kamala as well. I love love love the Young Avengers and I'm always happy to see more of them, especially Tommy since he gets ignored in the comics and by fandom so much. I really like the idea of them meeting Kamala because that would just be so exciting and probably a big mess, which is even more fun. I'd love to see something about the Young Avengers interacting with each other or with other young heroes, especially Kamala. Future AUs would be really cool as well, it would be really interesting to see how things change in the future for them. For Teddy, and I suppose Kamala as well, it would great to see an exploration of exactly how much they can do with their shapeshifting powers and if they change specific things about themselves around different people. Similarly for Billy, I'd love to see more about the extent of his reality warping powers and how he feels about them, especially since they caused massive problems in the Gillen/McKelvie run. I'm always up for seeing more of Tommy interacting with Billy and the rest of the team and how he has a hard time fitting in. More about what he was doing when he met David would be especially appreciated since that was kind of glossed over in the comics. I'd really love to see more about Kamala meshing her powers/responsibilities with her family and culture and it would be great to see how her family would react to learning her secret. The dark side of any of these characters' powers could be really interesting, especially with how it effects their teammates and how the older superheroes react. Supervillain AUs would also be fantastic.

Ships: Billy/Teddy, David/Tommy, Kate/Tommy, Bruno/Kamala

Prompts: The First International Conference for Teenage Superheroes. Billy and Kamala meet through their fanfiction archive. Tommy thinks he and David are dating, but apparently David didn't get that message.

Original - City Witch, Cursed Pirate, Cursed Princess, Female Dragon King, Female Knight, Fire Elemental, Ghost, Librarian Sorcerer, Masked Killer, Monster Hunter, Necromancer, Person With Sexually-Transmitted Monsterism, Posessed Laptop, Runaway Princess, Seller of Magical Items, Sentient Haunted Building, Space Pirate | Space Outlaw, Swamp Monster, Werewolf Princess, Woods Witch
I don't have a lot to say about this one other than I thought these characters were really interesting and I'd love to see what someone could do with them. Generally, I really like character driven stuff with great worldbuilding. I'm especially interested in the more fantasy and fantasy/horror type characters and it would be great to see something fantasy, paranormal, or fairy tale-esque. I do absolutely adore mermaids and there's really no way to go wrong with witches. I also am really interested in platonic parent-child relationships, especially adopted/foster ones.

Ships: any (and yes, that even means the monsters and (in)animate objects)

Prompts: The Librarian Sorcerer obtains a Posessed Laptop from a Seller of Magical Items. A princess gets sexually-transmitted werewolfism and has to go on the run from a Monster Hunter. The Female Knight goes to save a princess from a dragon, but ends up falling in love with the Female Dragon King instead.

Star Trek: AOS - Gaila, James T. Kirk, Winona Kirk
I've watched Star Trek 2009 probably more than a dozen times and I still hope every time that Gaila will somehow survive (so fix it fic is something I'd especially love to see). I thought she was a really interesting character and we really didn't get to see enough of her or learn much about her. I'd love to see something about how she got to Starfleet or her friendship with Nyota or her relationship with Jim. I hadn't thought much about Winona until recently, but I've been wondering where she was during the movies. We see her at the beginning, but not again, and I'd really love to see something about what she was doing all that time and what her relationship with Jim (and/or Sam) is like. One of my guilty pleasures is imaging weird alien genitalia for Spock, so something about that in his relationship with Jim would be fantastic, whether it's kinky or horrific. As Bones said, space is already a terrifying place, so I'd also love something that explores the creepy/awful things they find there or that they encounter while in contact with a new race. One of the humans introducing one of the aliens to the wonders of the Halloween holiday could be really fun!

Ships: Jim/Spock, Gaila/Jim, Gaila/any or OC, Winona/any or OC

Prompts: Winona mends her relationship with Jim after he returns from the destruction of Vulcan. Kirk takes Spock or Gaila to a haunted house. Gaila attends a costume party.

Xiaolin Showdown - Chase Young, Jack Spicer
I really loved this show as a kid and I especially loved these characters. Jack was often hilariously inept, but he was also fascinating because he could build awesome things and he was so desperate to be evil. Chase was my favorite and I loved his feline army and his dragon form. I think either of them would fit well for a trick just because of who they are, and I'd be especially interested in seeing some more physical horror from them. Although I'm generally not particularly interested in apocalypse situations, it would be interesting to see one or both of them in that situation and how they deal with it, or even if one of them was the cause. Fics where they're fighting the monks Xiaolin warriors and collecting artifacts are perfectly fine, though I'd really like to see something more out of the box or AU.

Ships: Chase/Jack

Prompts: Jack is horribly injured and builds himself robotic replacements for whatever he lost. Chase and Jack decide to take over the world together... and succeed. An artifact traps Jack in his worst nightmare.

Young Justice - Artemis Crock, Roy Harper, Wally West
I'm so sad this show got cancelled before I got into it. It was so so good and I absolutely loved Roy in it. He's so adorable and broken and angry, whether original!Roy or clone!Roy, and I just want to see so much more of him. I'd also really be interested in seeing more of Roy with Lian because she's adorable and we really didn't get to see much of them interacting in the show. I think he could be a great dad, and I definitely wouldn't be opposed to him raising her with the help of friends or with whoever he's romantically involved with. Wally is great because he's always so cheerful and optimistic and I really think he's the heart of the team. His "death" in s2 killed me, so a fix-it for him would be wonderful. I like Artemis a lot and I'm really interested in seeing more about before she joins the team and how she deals with being a superhero coming from a family of supervillains. Also, how she got to know Ollie since he trusted her enough to put her on the team. As for darker fics, an AU of s2 where the superheroes don't win or where the training exercise the team went through actually happens would be really interesting. Or anything where someone's powers go wrong or where with Roy dealing with his addiction are great options.

Ships: Roy/Wally, Artemis/Wally, Artemis/Roy/Wally, Kaldur/Roy

Prompts: Wally or Kaldur help Roy through his addiction. The remnants of the Young Justice team start up a resistance movement after Earth is overtaken. Roy takes Lian on a road trip as a way to bond with her.
