Dear trickortreatex author,

I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] failsafe on AO3!

Thank you for writing something for me, first and foremost. I write a lot of these letters, and often they feel a bit redundant. I always strive to make them a bit more concise, a bit more detailed, whatever I think will help each time. If you feel confused by anything, know that you can look at past Dear Author letters and find... much the same thing, perhaps expressed in a slightly different way.

I love Halloween and spooky things. I love things which are both creepy and cute. However, I do not necessarily need any of these fics to be centered around the holiday. Instead, I am excited to see whether or not you go with a trick or a treat! I have requested either/or and I fully encourage you to go either direction you feel inspired! I have a few firm Do-Not-Wants, but other than that I am fully in support of all trick fics you might come up with.

I will provide you with some dislikes, likes, and then on to fandom-specific prompts and thoughts!

Dislikes: character bashing towards anybody, noncon, explicit gore, breathplay, serious or permanent injury related to sexuality, nihilism, hopeless ending (but sad is okay), no powers AUs, loli/shota

I'd also like to ask for no unrequested ships as a primary focus, since there are some fandoms I've requested a lot of characters for and don't necessarily want to itemize all of my preferences out. However, I don't mind if your story includes an unrequested ship, especially if it's canon. Gen relationships of any nature or combination are perfect, though! I don't have to have a ship in any fic.

Likes: canon-typical violence, missing scenes, UST, emotional ambiguity, found families, developing or established relationships, time travel, bedsharing, loyalty, worldbuilding, epistolary/journal/log fiction, monster-of-the-week / slice of ordinary life adventures, earned second chances, dealing with consequences, post-canon, "what if" / canon divergence AUs, earned happy endings, holidays, casefic, groundhog day trope, mysteries, healing, survival (wilderness, zombie apocalypse, etc.), last stands, trying against impossible odds, succeeding against impossible odds, heartfelt goodbyes, unexpected reunions

About Art: It occurs to me that when art is an option, since I only actually request fanfiction, that I never say anything about it. I would be happy to receive art as a treat! I just know it's a ton of work and am not the most visually-oriented person. If you feel compelled to do art: my favorite color is red, I overall like warm palettes, but anything is good as long as it isn't graphically gory!

You can CTRL + F to find the fandom you're looking for if scrolling is too much!

Thank you so much once again!
