Dear MM Rares Writer,

Thank you for writing a fic for me! I'm happy that you ship at least one of my requested ships and I'm looking forward to whatever you're going to write for me. I've copied and pasted a lot from previous exchange letters because my general preferences haven't really changed much in the last few months. I have a short list of general likes and dislikes followed by an overly long list of all kinds of tropes I enjoy, and then some more specific stuff for the ships I requested. Obviously I don't expect you to include everything I mention in this letter; I'm pretty sure that wouldn't be possible anyway. But I always prefer to err on the side of caution and write very long letters - that way you can hopefully find a few things in this letter that you also enjoy writing about, and ignore the rest. :)

I use the same name on AO3 and tumblr as here.

As always, this letter ended up being embarrassingly long, but like I said, all of this is just supposed to give you ideas. I hope you find a few things you like in all this rambling, a prompt you'd like to write or tropes that appeal to you. I love all of these ships and I'm always here for more fic about them, so I'm sure I will enjoy whatever you write for me.

Thanks again!

Dear Not Prime Time Writer,

First, I want to thank you for writing a fic for me and for taking the time to have a look at this letter. I've copied and pasted lots of stuff from my Yuletide and Shipswap letters because my general preferences haven't really changed in the last few months. This letter has a few general likes and dislikes, an overly long list of tropes I enjoy, as well as sections about the different fandoms and characters I requested, including some hopefully not too constraining prompts. Obviously I don't expect you to include every single thing that I mention in this letter, I don't even think that would be possible. I just thought I'd make this as detailed as possible and give you the possibility to pick and choose which of these things also appeal to you as a writer. I figured that would be more helpful than if I only listed three things I enjoy and made you despair if you hate all of those three things.

As always my letter got incredibly long, but I hope it includes at least some things that you can work with and that you will enjoy writing. If you include at least some stuff I like and none of my dislikes, I'm sure I will enjoy whatever you write for me. :)

Thanks,

Dear Yuletide Writer,

First, I want to thank you for writing a fic for me and for taking the time to have a look at this letter. I will probably repeat quite a few things that are also in my optional details. Basically I will list a few general likes and dislikes, an overly long list of tropes I enjoy, as well as sections about the different fandoms and characters I requested, including some hopefully not too constraining prompts. Obviously I don't expect you to include every single thing that I mention in this letter, I don't even think that would be possible. I just thought I'd make this as detailed as possible and give you the possibility to pick and choose which of these things also appeal to you as a writer. I figured that would be more helpful than if I only listed three things I enjoy and made you despair if you hate all of those three things.

As a result this letter turned out very long, both because I ramble a lot and because many people like long letters. However, I do know that some people find long letters more intimidating/annoying than helpful. If that is the case with you, dear Yuletide writer, I would just ask you to have a look at my general Want and Do Not Want lists at the top of the letter, and maybe glance at the fandom-specific prompts to see if any of those inspire you. :)

That got embarrassingly long. I ramble a lot, I'm sorry. Again, all of this is supposed to help give you an idea of what I like, it's not at all meant to be restrictive and make your life harder. If you feel like you need to ask me about any of this, I have anonymous asks on tumblr enabled (same username as here and on AO3).

I think that's it. Thank you, again, and I hope that you will have have fun writing something for me. I'm really excited about Yuletide this year and I'm looking forward to reading your fic. :)

Thanks,

Dear Yuletide Writer,

First, thank you for writing a fic for me and taking the time to read this first. I hope that you didn't read my sign-up and thought "what on earth am I supposed to do with this?" If you did ... I'm sorry, and I hope that this letter will make things better for you and not worse.

I've never participated in Yuletide before, so I hope I'm doing this right. I looked at some other people's letters and tried to write something similar. As it is, you're getting a few lists of things I like and things I don't like and some rambling about the fandoms and characters I requested (I'm sure I'll be repeating a lot of things I already said in the "optional details" of my sign-up). I hope my rambling is somewhat helpful. Of course I don't expect you to include all the things I'm going on about here. I'm sure I will enjoy any fic you write about these characters we apparently both like, although I would appreciate if you didn't include the things I actively dislike. ;)

Things I generally like or don't like )

The Wire )

Coldfire Trilogy )

Welcome to the Punch )

That got long. I ramble a lot, I'm sorry. Again, all of this is only supposed to help give you an idea of what kinds of fic I like, it's not at all meant to be restrictive and make your life harder than it already is, having to write for me. ;) If you need more information on the stuff I like, I use the same username everywhere, LJ, AO3, tumblr. I also have anon asks on tumblr on, so if you want to ask me anonymous questions about anything, you can do that.

Soooo, thank you already for doing this, dear writer. I hope you'll be having at least a little bit of fun writing something for me instead of wishing every day you had ended up with someone else. ;)

Thanks,
Linn ([livejournal.com profile] linndechir)
