Dear Author: thank you for writing for me! I can't wait to see whether I'll be getting a trick or a treat, and in what fandom. I'm pretty easy to please as far as stories go. I like everything from slice-of-life to epic fics, so if you'd like to go over the word limit, feel free! I'll be happy to get any fics featuring my requested characters, but if you do feel like doing something shippy, I've listed my favorite pairings for each fandom. I dig fluff and happy friendship/romantic fics, and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I'd love to get something spooky too.

Here is a list of my general kinks: angst, banter, bickering-as-flirting, bonding, camaraderie, competence porn, established relationships (platonic or sexual), humor, hurt/comfort, loyalty in the face of personality friction, misunderstanding and reconciliation, pining, social mores and their subversion

Smut kinks include: blowjobs, confined spaces, consummation after ages of pining, cunnilingus, enemies-to-lovers, friends-to-lovers, forced intimacy, loyalty kink, m/m first time, sex pollen, snuggling, tentacles, trust kink, unintentional voyeurism, whipping, voyeurism

(I haven't listed DNWs as it kind of felt unsporting to include them when I requested both tricks and treats for my fandoms, but you can find them in other challenge sign-up letters if you do want to look.)

Anyway, here are some trick and treat prompts for each of my requested fandoms. That said, I love getting surprises, so if you have additional ideas, please do run with them!

Blake & Avery Series – M.J. Carter
Jeremiah Blake, William Avery, Matty Horner
Ships: Jeremiah Blake/William Avery
Tricks: Something is stalking London's dockworkers. Rumors are it's a Hindoo demon. Or Springheel Jack. Or something even darker. Our heroes reunite to investigate.
Matty is having visions. Blake and Avery are called upon to uncover what is causing them, and what they mean.
The fair is in town. It brings back dark memories for Blake. What are they, and what do our heroes do about it?
Blake has ties to London's German expat community (because: Blake). He and Avery have an Oktoberfest beer (or two, or...).
It's All Hallows' Eve. What do our heroes think about its traditions and how (do?) they celebrate them?
The fair is in town. What happens when our heroes go?

Abe no Seimei, Minamoto no Hiromasa, Mitsumushi
Ships: Abe no Seimei/Minamoto no Hiromasa
Hiromasa is haunted by the most horrific demon to ever terrorize the Heian court. What does everyone do about it?
A sutra reading goes dreadfully wrong. What happens when our heroes are brought in to help?
Hiromasa is haunted by the cutest demon to ever appear in the Heian court. What does Abe think about this state of affairs, and what does he do next?
Our heroes celebrate Obon.

Blake & Avery Series – M.J. Carter
Thor, Loki, Yondu Udonta, Drax the Destroyer, Kraglin Obfonteri, Mantis, Peter Quill, Odin, James “Bucky” Barnes, Steve Rogers
Ships: Thor/Loki, Yondu Udonta/Kraglin Obfonteri, Drax the Destroyer/Mantis, James “Bucky” Barnes/Steve Rogers
*For convenience, I broke these prompts out by character sets from the respective movies, but I am more than open to stories that mix and match them!
For the Asgard crew – Loki decides that since Thor loves humans so much, he'll introduce Thor to some Midgardian culture: Halloween tricks. What happens next?
For the Guardians crew – All the members of this gang have lost someone, been lost, or both. What does a haunting look like in outer space?
For the Avengers crew - Nightmares are nothing new to Steve or Bucky. But dreaming the other man's nightmares is. Why is this happening? What (if anything) can they do to solve it?
For the Asgard crew - Loki decides that since Thor loves humans so much, he'll introduce Thor to some Midgardian culture: Halloween tricks and treats. What happens next?
For the Guardians crew – The gang goes trick or treating, on Earth or anywhere in the galaxy.
For the Avengers crew – One or both of our heroes crashes a Halloween party in their battle gear. How do the other guests react?
Thank you for writing a Queen's Thief story for me! I can't wait to read your fic. I love all the books and am excited about reading anything set anywhere before, during, or after any of them: I'm very much a go-in-blind reader, so if you have fic ideas already, please jump right in with those. My short list of DNWs, longer list of kinks, and some possible prompts for each request are behind the cut tags.

Dear Author, thank you for writing for me! So many of my favorite fandoms appeared in the tagset for this exchange. I can't wait to see which one you choose.

My few DNWs (unless otherwise noted in the prompt) are character death, eroticized rape, guro, heavy-duty AU, mpreg.

My kinks are myriad. I like the full spectrum from angst and hurt/comfort to humor and slice-of-life. I love reconciliation and two characters realising how they've misunderstood each other's intentions this entire time. Social mores and their subversion (conscious or otherwise) are a huge thing for me. Banter and bickering-as-flirting are also gold as far as I'm concerned.

I've set out some ideas for each prompt below. Feel free to use any that strike your fancy or write a completely unrelated story if you've got something in mind.

Blake & Avery Series - MJ Carter
Jeremiah Blake/William Avery
Obsession with this series has enveloped my fandom life for over a year now. I don't think Carter intends their interactions to be slashy, but to this reader's eye, they are, and in all the ways I love. I very much want this fandom to be bigger (ie, exist) so I will be thrilled with any story involving these two. If you'd like some ideas to get you started:
- Avery's nightmares are still troubling him. What does he tell Blake about them, and what has Blake already figured out? How does Blake help Avery to deal with them?
- Blake gets on the ship to America. Does Avery follow (and if so, when and why)?
- Blake has a run-in with Avery's father. How does it happen, and what is the result?
* My one request is that you don't give Helen a bum deal as a result of these two pairing up.

Abe no Seimei/Minamoto no Hiromasa
I've read the novels and the manga, but as far as I'm concerned the films are the definitive version of this series and I'm always thrilled to see them appear in a tagset. I sound like a broken record in my requests, but I love Semei's wry worldliness and Hiromasa's bemused dependability, so anything you write with these elements will do it for me. Having said that, some specific jumping-off points might be:
- Seimei is asked to perform an important rite in the Inner Palace. Why were higher-ranking onmyoji passed over, and what is the result?
- Hiromasa is tapped to take an imperial message to an important shrine or temple. But once his retinue leaves the Heiankyo city gates, something goes awry. Does Seimei step in to help, or does the trouble involve him?
- An jealous onmyoji journeys to the capital to challenge Seimei, and only Hiromasa can save him. How does it happen?

Samurai Flamenco
Gotou Hidenori/Hazama Masayoshi
I don't understand why this fandom and this pairing aren't bigger. I love Hazama's naivete and passion for making humanity Do Good!, and Gotou's steadiness and devotion. These two were made for each other, and I would love to read about their further adventures. Some prompts:
- Hazama opens school for aspiring superheros and tries to hire Gotou as an advisor.
- Some time has passed since the events of the series. Hazuma's popularity with fans of his good deeds and modeling career only continue to grow. Gotou becomes his personal security guard, one thing leads to another, and...?
- And the perennial favorite: Hazuma tries proposing again. What makes him do it and what happens this time around?

Gentlemen Bastard Sequence - Scott Lynch
Locke Lamora/Jean Tannen
I've only read the first book and it's no secret that it disagreed with me. There was such an intriguing world and premise, but I spent the entire novel waiting for Locke to realise that his thieving and killing and ruining lives feels just as horrible to his victims as it does to him when he's on the receiving end of it, and he never did. Author, please correct this here.

My guro and noncon DNWs are not in force for this story. Basically, I want Locke to get raked over the coals here, so mess him up, mess Jean up, do what ever you like until Locke has that epiphany. Let your baser nature be your guide. Bonus points if Jean gets it bad and still manages to come to the rescue. Bonus bonus points if they get schmoopy about it afterward.

World Wrestling Entertainment
Antonio Cesaro/Sheamus
These two. Oh my goodness, these two. The bar brawls. The promos. The matching utilikilts. The Celtic/Gallic alliance. Anything, anything with them will make me happy. Some possibilities might be:
- It's been a long, grueling dark show/PPV/24 hours in airport purgatory. Our duo gets to the hotel and starts bickering over the TV channel, the bed by the window, who showers first, you get the picture. One thing leads to another, and...
- Domestic rivalries. Whose country does breakfast better: breakfast fry or continental breakfast? Or if drinking, stout versus wine. Cesaro likes cooking, but what does Sheamus think of his attempts? Is the way to Sheamus's heart through his stomach?
- I would love something involving all the languages these two speak between them. Does Sheamus teach Cesaro to curse in Gaelic? Does Cesaro try wooing him (or insulting him!) in French or Italian or... Do they bond over being able to talk smack at the rest of the roster without the other guys being able to understand?

Dear Fic Mountaineer, thank you so much for writing a story for me! I'm thrilled to be getting something in any one of these fandoms, and aside from a small list of DNWs am very easy to please. I like everything from gen slice-of-life to explicit PWP. I've included a list of overarching kinks should you be interested and some ideas for each request below, should you be interested, but if you have an idea of your own feel free to run with it.

DNWs: Guro, heavy duty AU, mpreg, rape, watersports

Kinks: Angst, banter, camaraderie, characters fighting/transgressing social mores, competence kink, comedy of manners, drama, established relationships, history, humor, hurt/comfort, language geekery, misunderstandings and the fallout therefrom, period details, politics, reconciliation

Blake & Avery Series
Jeremiah Blake/William Avery

The dance of joy and happiness I danced when I saw this pairing was a sight to behold. These two have eaten my brain for well over a year now; they are the pairing my fandom mind has constantly returned to when in its resting state. And there is at least one other fan out there! I adore their dynamic--Blake outwardly aloof and cynical but inwardly so eager for companionship, and Avery so desperate to please and not half as incapable as he seems to think he is--and would love to read your take on it at any point from the first book on. Some ideas:
- Who began pining for whom first and how did he win the other over? Or if he hasn't, how does he plan to? I have serious THOUGHTS on this but would love to get your take.
- One of them is sent for [reasons of your choosing] to [India/China/America/location of your choosing]. How do they reunite, and why does the other tell himself he's following?
- Blake must travel to Devon to help Avery sort our a problem.
- What stories did Blake tell Avery during their flight toward the end of The Strangler Vine. How do they feature in Avery's private fantasies?

If you're setting your story from The Infidel Stain on, I would prefer that Helen not be made to suffer if they consummate a relationship with each other; how you handle that is up to you.

Silver Diamond
Senro Chigusa/Sawa Rakan

These two are, and will forever be, my Silver Diamond OTP. I adore Chigusa's utter devotion, Rakan's humanizing influence, and the way the love between them is woven throughout the series. I am fine if your story continues in this vein, but if you'd like to make things more explicit between them there'll be no complaint from this quarter! Fic set anywhere in the series is dandy; here are some ideas:
- Chigusa uses the mirror vine or the massive ladder vine to get some private time with Rakan. What do they talk about, and what happens next?
- What happens after Chigusa wraps up his shift at the cafe?
- Is Rakan ever jealous of Chigusa's interactions with another character? How does that play out between them?
- Rakan watches another scary movie. Chigusa is on hand to provide comfort.

Vampire Chronicles
Armand, Louis de Pointe du Lac

I will confess a preference here for Armand and Louis as they are written in Interview with the Vampire before Rice rebooted her characters. Therefore, any fic from their pov(s) that "corrects the record" of Lestat's later books is a particular kink of mine in this fandom. That said, please don't feel bound to this if you'd prefer to write them in accordance with later novels.
- What was Armand feeling when he walks away from Louis at the end of Interview? How does he feel when they are reunited?
- How does Louis (or Armand, if you like) feel about the changes New Orleans has undergone since the dawn of the 21st century?
- Because I'm a sucker for humor and snark: Their thoughts on the Twilight series, please.

Gen with these two is great, but I also ship them so if you'd like to go that route, lovely.

And once again, thank you for writing for me! I can't wait to read it.

Dear Worldbuilder – Thank you for writing a fic for me! I can't wait to read it. In terms of content, I like the entire spectrum from gen to porny and humor, angst, slice of life, drama, epic novel, so feel free to write as your muse inspires you. If you'd like some initial ideas, these are the questions that intrigue me about each prompt:

The Goblin Emperor )

Captive Prince Series )

Marvel Cinematic Universe )

Seeing as you drew my name in the assignments you're probably wondering, Who is this person and what sorts of fic do they like? The good news is, fear not! Aside from my few DNWs below, I like pretty much everything and am happy with fic set anywhere before, during, or after canon. Moreover, I enjoy reading fanfiction without knowing much about the story before I start. I've listed some prompts below, but feel free to write something that has nothing to do with them if you've got a great plot bunny of your own. Also, any additional characters you'd like to include beyond those listed in the tags are a-okay by me.

Likes: Adroitly resolving problems, angst, any rating, gen to PWP; banter, camaraderie, character interaction, characters fighting/transgressing social mores, competence kink, comedy of manners, drama, established relationships, found families, history, humor, hurt/comfort, language geekery, misunderstandings and the fallout therefrom, period details, politics, political maneuvering, and strategy; slice of life, worldbuilding

Dislikes: Eroticized rape, heavy duty AU (e.g. genderswap, high school, space travel), mpreg
