Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you for writing something for me and taking the time to look at this letter. My letters always get terribly long - I prefer listing a variety of things I like and hoping that some of it works for you rather than only prompting two things you might hate. I've listed some general likes and dislikes - that's the important stuff, really. It's followed by a list of kinks I like reading about, should you feel inclined to write porn, and then fandom-specific sections with a variety of prompts. But if those don't work for you, that's fine - if you write something that includes a couple of things I enjoy and doesn't include any of my DNWs, I'm sure I will enjoy it.

As a general rule, I enjoy all ratings, I like darker, angstier fic and more light-hearted stories, although neither completely conflictless fluff nor completely bleak darkfic with no ray of hope are quite my thing. I like shorter fics and plotty longfic. I prefer shipfic to gen, but if you don't want to write my ship, I think many of my prompts and likes also work for gen. As long as there's some focus on the relationship between the characters I've requested, I'm still happy, even if it's not a romantic/sexual relationship in your fic. I'd only ask that you don't pair off these characters in other ships I didn't request.

I am in love with every single one of the fandoms I'm requesting and would be happy to receive a fic in any of them. Some fandom-specific sections turned out longer than others, but that's only because I had more prompt ideas for some of them, not because I like any one of them better than the others.

I use the same username on AO3 and tumblr.

General likes and dislikes )

The Hateful Eight (2015) )

Blitz (2011) )

Batman v Superman )

And that should be it. I hope that there's something in this letter that works for you, dear author, some trope you love to write or some prompt that inspires you. Happy Yuletide, and I hope you receive a wonderful gift fic yourself. :)

Thanks!

Dear Yuletide Writer,

I am very excited about Yuletide this year (or rather every year) and I'm very happy that we apparently both love one of those fandoms below. Thank you for writing a fic for me and for taking the time to have a look at this letter. My letters tend to get long and rambling, I hope you don't mind that. I obviously don't expect you to include every single thing I've mentioned in this letter because I'm pretty sure that's impossible anyway. But I always prefer to write longer letters and give you more things to choose from rather than leave you with two prompts you might both hate (and I'm terrible at not being wordy, there's that).

I've listed some general likes and dislikes, followed by a long list of tropes and kinks I enjoy. Again, those are just there to give you some ideas, don't feel like you have to cram all of that stuff into one fic. Then there are some fandom-specific sections with a whole bunch of prompts. I've copied&pasted a lot from previous exchange letters, but that's simply because my likes and interests haven't really changed much recently.

I hope that you'll find something in this letter that you'll enjoy writing, some prompt that interests you or some tropes that you like. I absolutely love all the fandoms and characters I've requested and I'm excited to receive a fic about any of them, so as long as you try to include a few of my likes and don't include any of my DNWs, I'm sure I will love your fic. :D

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

Overly long list of tropes and kinks I like )

About my fandoms:

The Raven Cycle )

Furious 7 (2015) )

Blitz (2011) )

The Expendables )

Aaaand I think that's about it. I did say my letters get embarrassingly long. Like I said, I hope that you find something in all this rambling that you'll enjoy writing about, and I'm looking forward to whatever you'll end up writing for me. :D

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 )

Justified )

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)
