If you check out my last Trick or Treat (or even Yuletide) letter, you'll probably notice that I've copied a lot over, including some of the structure.

General stuff first!

I love all of the fandoms and characters I'm requesting, so if one section seems longer or shorter than another, it's due to how much I had to say, not how much I love the request. (And also maybe an indicator of where I was when I started running out of energy and ideas and what has gotten at least partial copy-paste treatment. Sorry, RimWorld.) They are all fandoms of my heart, and I'm excited at the possibility of receiving any of them.

Also, this letter is super long, so again, please don't feel obligated to read it all (or at all!). If you already have an idea of what you want to do from just the AO3 requests, go for it! This is all to (I hope) make it easier on you, and I am a big believer in optional details being optional. There being fic or art for my fandoms will make me happy. Everything else is icing on delicious, delicious cake.

This year I'm requesting art or fic in seven fandoms: Dragon Age (Varric), Dwarf Fortress (Cat, Dwarf, Forgotten Beast, Kobold, Necromancer, Overseer), Fallout 4 (Deacon), Naruto (Guy/Gai, Kakashi), RimWorld, The Scumthorpe Files (any), and Rubyquest (Red, Ruby). Each fandom section will include subsections as follows: short summary/promotion and links (for smaller fandoms), general fandom talk, characters-specific prompts (where applicable), trick prompts, treat prompts, art prompts. Feel free to skip straight to what you feel is most relevant. :D

Fair warning: this letter will contain spoilers, so if you have it on your "to watch/to read/to play" list and want to go into it with fresh eyes, you'll want to skip that section.

A note: I've received fic and art in the past for several of my requested fandoms, which I loved! I just want more. If you matched me on one of those, I am sure I will love whatever you make me, whether it's along the lines of the gifts I've already gotten or something entirely new.

For ease of stalking: tuesday on AO3, everysecondtuesday on tumblr

If you've made it this far, I'd like to thank you for participating in Trick or Treat. This is a delightful exchange, and I am excited for and about it.

My number one hope for my gift fic or art is that you have a good time with it, so let me emphasize again that I'm just happy that there will be another fanwork for one of these fandoms. This monster of a letter was mostly an excuse to enthuse about these fandoms, and I truly hope it doesn't put you off or make you worry about whether you can make any of the prompts work. Whatever you end up writing or drawing, I'm hoping it's something you enjoy about the fandom and have fun creating.

Have a happy Trick or Treat!

There's a nonzero chance Brenda's lawyer in the Chief AU will be Jack Raydor.

I like Gavin, but he doesn't bring anything new and exciting to the story. Everyone has done Sharon and her BFF Gavin, but I feel like we don't see Jack as much, and do we ever see him with Brenda?

It also might let me use my favorite, you-can-pry-it-from-my-cold-dead-hands headcanon (Sharon and Jack have excellent hate sex any time Jack blows through), and I am all about doing that with this fic.

But first I have to get Sharon and Brenda through this fight. Sharon doesnt want to fight and it's annoying me. Sharon! This is Brenda! She's yelling at you! Why don't you want to yell back?

Five Things Naomi Novik Said:

We took a responsibility on and I know that -- even during the darkest moments of the Board where I literally thought that the entire tech staff would quit and there would be no one to run AO3 -- that what kept people on [as volunteers] even though there wasn't any kind of good resolution to the problems, it was the inertia of not wanting to drop the ball.

Now, I read this Q&A at least ten times before it was posted, and every time I read that, I had the same thought: "Wow, wild times. I'm glad I wasn't around for that."

It didn't occur to me until tonight that yes, I was. I very much was. And I don't think I ever appreciated until this moment just how close we came.

Hello, and thank you for offering one of my fandoms! I love everything I requested and I'm excited to see what you come up with. If you have an idea already then there's no need to read my letter; I'm very easy to please when it comes to exchange fic ;-) But if you want a feel for my tastes, I've written up some general info and prompts below.

For the record, these are me:

General Likes
Secrets! Secret identities, secret relationships, identity porn, someone is secretly a mermaid
AUs: paranormal AUs, scifi AUs, weird AUs like with zerophilia or institutionalized ghosthunting
Shippy stuff, including smut and not-smut
Sex pollen, body sharing, breathplay
Pregnancy (dark and fluffy), including mpreg
Time travel (of all types, but also for selfcest purposes - look, I watched Predestination and had a lot of feelings, okay?)
I'd be delighted by a fusion or crossover between my requested fandoms (like, maybe the aliens from Decoys are part of the invasion in People of Earth!) or with my requested characters from another fandom encountering my Original Works characters (are they aliens who interact with characters from People of Earth or Decoys? Do Alice or FP cross paths with Bigfoot?)

Things I'd like for tricks!
What do I mean when I request a trick? I've requested tricks for all of my fandoms and my main intent was to get something spooky or creepy, particularly on the darker side of paranormal. Hauntings! Curses! Etc! Or someone pretending there's a haunting or a curse for nefarious purposes. This can insert a new paranormal element into the canon (Pemberley is haunted!) or play up an existing element (Batsquatch terrorizes some motorists or an experiencer is freaked out when they're abducted).

Another type of trick I'd be interested in is fucked up or dark ship fic - relationships with deception, manipulation, or other dysfunction. In terms of sexual content, I would prefer no physically violent sex between men and women, but that's my only restraint.

Things I'd like for treats!
Shippy stuff would be great! Getting together, fluffy curtain fic, a soulmate AU, or a smutty/romantic encounter. This last one can easily be combined with a trick - maybe one of the characters is comforting another after a scare? For shipfic I've noted some pairings I like in the fandom sections, but a surprise ship would also be pretty fun.

Something Hallowe'en themed but not spooky or dark would also be a nice treat - something revolving around sweets (candy, maple syrup, baking, fruit), actual Hallowe'en celebrations (what do aliens think about Hallowe'en?), or something fluffy for my cryptid characters. Did you know there's an active trend on tumblr about cute cryptids dating each other? Here's an example.

Notes on the Community Bingo Challenge
I love witches, cats, pumpkins, and holidays (esp. Hallowe'en!)
I prefer vampires to zombies for undead characters
Any fic with one of my Original Work character could be tagged "Monster Mash"
A "Moss Covered Unicorn" could be a creepy statue at a creepy house . . .
"Irate Frenemy" could describe Alice's relationship to FP, maybe? Or Alex and Constance's feelings for each other?
I may suck at writing art prompts (and therefore rarely request or receive art) but I still appreciate fanart and you can treat me art if you're inspired to!

Please No killing or hurting animals, thank you. I'd also like graphic gore (mutilation/description of blood/violent wounds) restricted to Ravenous. Thank you for your understanding!

My request details are under the cut.
