Dear Rarelywritten writer,

I'm sorry my requests are... so wordy. I thought individual prompts might be helpful, but once I got started, it became a bit much. Twenty-nine individuals. Oops.

So feel free to ignore anything. If you had a very clear idea of the kind of story you wanted to execute and it is somehow entirely different from my request, you should write what you want to. I have no triggers and hardly any squicks. Although most of my prompts are gen inclined, take them wherever you would like; I promise I'm good for it. Above all, I want you to have a good time writing.

So just to note:

I'm unconcerned about spoilers, so reference freely. Make things up! Also feel free to combine prompts or toss in other characters I didn't mention.

If you happen to know more than one of my canons and are interested in trying, I really enjoy crossovers and cross-canon parallels. What if Wakaba transfered and had a chance to face her Shadow? Maybe Nanami and Kali know each other from socialite circles. An AU professor Meg stays with Mito while on sabbatical at Whale Island (or reverse). If you are able to make something like that work, I will be so pleased. But if this isn't your cup of tea, don't sweat it - I'm going to be pleased anyway!

Also, I would be interested in seeing queer sexual orientations or gender identities for. . . pretty much any of these women, whether it's casually taken for granted in the fic proper, or addressed and developed as a plot item. Wow, but don't feel pressured to make this happen. The only exception is canon queer couples - I'm attached, although willing to see partners swapped around, but please please don't straighten them.

TL;DR: 1) can't be spoiled 2) crossovers are excellent 3) I do like a casually queer cast - if you are so inclined!

I think that's about it, really. Thank you so much for attempting this (and having excellent tastes in fandoms). Please have fun!

[ Dear Author letter here ]

1. Hunter x Hunter (8)

Oh man, if you officially matched me on this fandom, I guess you already know who I am and what I like. Oops. But assuming that isn't the case, I should explain that I'm primarily familiar with the anime canon, but I'm perfectly happy to read about manga canon or an alternate universe of your choice, canon-divergent or contextual reassignment, etc.

Although for Kite and Mito, I'd prefer something canon compliant and my prompts will mostly be of that sort, but if you want to write college AU, diety AU, secret agent AU, or whatever, go for it!

2. Shoujo Kakumei Utena | Revolutionary Girl Utena (7)

You cannot go wrong with future fic. Or, considering the canon, I may just mean post-series fic. This can mean post-graduation fic for anyone, but it could just be how the characters cope at Otori when the duels have ended and the Rose Bride has left. This is a tricky canon, but I'm very easy-going about interpretations so try not to worry about it.

If you want focus on or mix-and-match Adolescence canon, that would be fun. If you want to write contextual reassignment AU, I would prefer if you tried to export the surrealism of the canon along with the general shapes of relationships. In tone, I think I'm mostly looking for something positive and hopeful from this series rather than angsty after everyone has already suffered so much. I ship the heck out of Anthy and Utena, but I'm a poly multi shipper so if you add someone in or write something else, it would interest me just as much.

3. Austin & Murry-O'Keefe Families - Madeleine L'Engle (4)

Kali Cutter - Future fic! I'm torn between wanting to see her redeemed, and wanting to see her femme fatale her way viciously through adulthood. Either or a blend would be fantastic. I would love it if she could be contrived to meet Vicky or Polly again. I... also vaguely ship her with Zach Gray because can you imagine, but don't worry about it.

Meg Murry | Meg O'Keefe - an AU reverse-role future where Meg is an international figure in the field of mathematics (or something) and Calvin is a stay-at-home father for their many offspring. Political intrigue! Mundane conflicts! What stays the same and what changes? Alternatively, an exploration of what went into the choice she made and how she continues to fight the good fight. She faced down evil and annihilation as a child – where did that fire go?

Suzy Austin - Future fic! I am a big fan of future fic for child characters as you'll see. After A Ring of Endless Light and during Troubling a Star, Suzy had her whole life planned out. She knew she wanted to be a vet and knew she had the brains and will to pull it off. Did it happen? Unlike what Vicky thinks, knowing what you want doesn't necessarily make it easier to get it. I want to learn more about Suzy, her struggles from her own point of view, and the person she might have become.

Vicky Austin - Future fic, I'm sorry. I'd like to see her struggle with something a twenty-something person would struggle with. As much as I ship her with Adam (and I really do), I'm fine if they break up. I would really enjoy seeing her taking him to task... It would also be really interesting if she met, even just in passing, Polly, or Meg, (or, because I'm awful, Kali).

4. Persona 4 (6)

I'm generally familiar primarily through the anime, although I have passing familiarity with the first game from looking over the shoulders of friends who were actually doing the playing. I'm not as familiar with Golden or Arena et al. or P3 but I'd be perfectly happy with their inclusion. This doesn't have to mean anything to you except that there's a good chance I trust your canon knowledge more than mine; take liberties! I also really like when game mechanics are worked into stories from video game canons, even though in cases like this, I have pretty much no personal experience with said mechanics. If it comes up, I have no preferences as to the protagonist's name, Yu or Souji, and don't care if you keep to his canonical gender.

For most of the characters, I would like to see present or future fic; more of the same of their lives in Inaba, or maybe several years down the line, where they end up and what they end up doing. As far as shipping or side-shipping goes, I am happy with anything and with gen, so whatever would work best for your story is fair game.

5. Gunnerkrigg Court (4)

Anja Donlan - Anja could be a great portal into the side of court life we mostly don't get to see because a lot of the mysteries of GC are probably things she can take for granted. Speculate and make stuff up! What does she do day to day? Did she ever fall in improbable love with a bird? I'm interested in all of her relationships: with Surma, her husband, her daughter, and Court as a significant entity in her life.

Katerina Donlan - I have such a weakness for robots and artificial intelligence and Kat is all over that. I also love the surrealism of Court life – which in many ways, Kat grew up with! Any study of Kat's relationship with birds or femininity or her hilarious parents would be really great. So would an implausible action-packed random adventure. And definitely shippy stuff with her canon girlfriend and with Annie (platonic or romantic or whatever you would like), if you are up for it.

Lindsey (Gunnerkrigg Court) - Domesticity when you're a giant crab? I'm sorry, I just want to read about the logistics involved with being a giant crab in a school, and/or maybe cute marriage stuff as applied to giant crabs with tiny crab husbands.

Surma Stibnite – Backstory fic? I'm interested in all of Surma's relationships with all of the members of the old cohort, both while they were students, or even after graduation. Although I'm definitely interested in the romantic drama, including Reynardine's part, I'm especially invested in her friendship with Anja, who I'm as curious about as Surma. It would be interesting to see how everyone's relationships might parallel Annie's cast. A more political angle, with her role as medium and her SPOILER background, would also be very neat.
