I am offering giftfics for Christmas!
So here's how this works: if you would like to receive a mini ficlet for Christmas/New Year (or whatever holiday you celebrate, or if you don't celebrate anything, fun free present!) send a request my way.
Here's what to leave in the request:
(Stuff I need to know)
Characters: [list the characters you want in the ficlet, 1-3 works best; bear in mind that more than that can be pretty tough to pull off in a short ficlet!]
Prompt: [this can be anything from a specific scenario you'd like to see (e.g. 'Character A and Character B visit an aquarium and adopt a pet fish') to a few lines you want included in a fic (e.g. some dialogue), or just a few prompt words (e.g. 'silver', 'rainbows', 'waves' etc. etc.) ... basically something I can use for inspiration]*
Pairings: [if you want shipfic, give a pairing; otherwise, I'll probably make it genfic or background canon pairings]*
Squicks: [stuff you really don't like to read about so I can avoid putting it in]
Rating: [max rating you're comfortable with]**
Fandom: [It will probably be obvious from the characters given, but in case there are characters that have the same name in different fandoms, feel free to make it clear (e.g. Percy Jackson vs. Percy Weasley) And yes, I am happy to do different fandoms/crossovers as long as it is something I know. A non-exhaustive list is below, but if there's something you'd like that you don't know if I've read, just ask. Maybe I've forgotten it]
*Note-I'm really bad at writing pairings that contradict canon pairings, so although I'm not going to say no to those because hey, challenge! ... if you want something non-canonical, prepare to have it turn out not exactly as you expected (i.e. short on the romance).
**Another note-I will not write anything above a M rating, sorry.
And that's it! Gift ficlets will probably be around 500 words (any longer depends on the muse).
