    Summary

    As much as I hate to admit it, I think Kate has the capacity to be as much a wolf as Alejandro. Of course, if you wanted to not corrupt her, that would be great too! I like them fucked up and dysfunctional and redeemed and happy and everything in between. In the end though I would really love to read something that deals with any aspect of the movie.

    And here's my annual blanket LIKE/NO LIKE thing. (Bottom line is really: if it serves the story, do what makes you happy!)

    LIKE: apocafic, both hopeful and bleak; fight scenes that make me ache; snappy dialogue; character studies; narrative-heavy stories; missing moments; AUs both serious and crack; bickering for bickering's sake and UST-y banter; road trips; what-ifs; fix-its; tropes played straight and subverted; canon-compliance; crossovers; original characters; experiments in tone and tense; mood pieces and action-tastic epics; SCIENCE!; friendships romantic and platonic; history stuff; worldbuilding and backstory explorations; that kind of fic where you spend six hours researching something that winds up being two words out of the whole story. I generally prefer het and canon relationships, unless otherwise specified, and I am terribly vanilla when it comes to kinks.

    NO LIKE: animal deaths/cruelty are hard nopes for me; non- or dub-con, rape, abuse, and/or incest glamorized or done up as ~romance~; a/b/o; gratuitous character-bashing; treating female characters like crap for no reason (but again that goes back to: if it serves the story, as not every story treats its female characters nobly or well). Other than that, it's pretty much all fair game.

    Summary

    Another repeated request for a fandom with zero fic. Let me just say: I would be so happy with anything. ANYTHING. Crawfish Seller and Danny Fisher. Tell me a story. *chinhands* (OKAY SO. Have you seen this movie? I'm sure you have because why would you be offering... Let's start over. THIS MOVIE!!! :DDDD!!!! It's great and I love it so much. Also I'm sorry but and I want Danny and the Crawfish Seller to be in love and secretly together, and everything he's doing and everything she's doing is to try to make it so they can be together. AND THE SONG IS PRETTY OBVIOUSLY CODE FOR WHEN THEY MEET SECRETLY AT NIGHT AMIRITE OR AMIRITE.) Lots more optional details in my letter if you're into it.

    And here's my annual blanket LIKE/NO LIKE thing. (Bottom line is really: if it serves the story, do what makes you happy!)

    LIKE: apocafic, both hopeful and bleak; fight scenes that make me ache; snappy dialogue; character studies; narrative-heavy stories; missing moments; AUs both serious and crack; bickering for bickering's sake and UST-y banter; road trips; what-ifs; fix-its; tropes played straight and subverted; canon-compliance; crossovers; original characters; experiments in tone and tense; mood pieces and action-tastic epics; SCIENCE!; friendships romantic and platonic; history stuff; worldbuilding and backstory explorations; that kind of fic where you spend six hours researching something that winds up being two words out of the whole story. I generally prefer het and canon relationships, unless otherwise specified, and I am terribly vanilla when it comes to kinks.

    Summary

    I've asked for this in the past but it's probably understandable why no one wants to write about these characters. I really enjoy complexity in characters, and was disappointed that the Tannens were so one-dimensional in the movies, and I've always wanted to know more about Buford and Biff, and the never-seen Gertrude, and where did Griff come from, and and and. Does Biff go somewhere else between picking up the sports book and 1955? What happened between 1955 and 1985 and 2015 in the first improved timeline to make him so obsequious in middle-age and so bitter in old? Could Griff turn out to not be a dumbass? (Is he in love with one or both of Marty's kids?) Does the casino timeline bleed into another and a Tannen has to fix it instead of a McFly? Does Doc's family run across a Tannen we didn't meet? Do they interfere with Buford's hanging? Or or or. And! Tom Wilson is pretty great—often my favorite part of all three movies on rewatching—so if you channel him, I will adore you for the rest of time. Or OUTATIME. (I'm sorry. It was just sitting there. I had to.) More detail in the letter if you're so inclined!

    I really genuinely am so negatively affected by the US political campaign that I can't take the Biff/Trump comparison, so please no alt-1985 if you can avoid it.

    And here's my annual blanket LIKE/NO LIKE thing. (Bottom line is really: if it serves the story, do what makes you happy!)

    LIKE: apocafic, both hopeful and bleak; fight scenes that make me ache; snappy dialogue; character studies; narrative-heavy stories; missing moments; AUs both serious and crack; bickering for bickering's sake and UST-y banter; road trips; what-ifs; fix-its; tropes played straight and subverted; canon-compliance; crossovers; original characters; experiments in tone and tense; mood pieces and action-tastic epics; SCIENCE!; friendships romantic and platonic; history stuff; worldbuilding and backstory explorations; that kind of fic where you spend six hours researching something that winds up being two words out of the whole story. I generally prefer het and canon relationships, unless otherwise specified, and I am terribly vanilla when it comes to kinks.

    Summary

    I would love pretty much anything about Bobo from any point in his (un)life. Feel free to write him as being anywhere on the moral spectrum from "misunderstood anti-hero" to "irredeemable villain." How did he go from being Robert Svane, close confidante of Wyatt Earp, to getting killed by Wyatt, to becoming Bobo Del Rey, leader of Purgatory's main group of revenants? Was there some kind of great betrayal? Was it an accident? Did he volunteer for it as some kind of long con scheme to end the curse that went off the rails as the decades wore on and he got more unhinged? Was having Levi dragged out of the Triangle the worst thing he ever did to a fellow revenant, or have there been other things through the years? What kind of weird schemes has he gotten up to in the century or more he has been stuck in Purgatory? What kind of interaction has he had with any of the previous generations of Earps? Why does he seem to dislike Wynonna so much more than either Willa or Waverly? Or give me something about his time spent pretending to be Waverly's imaginary friend. Or tell me about the treehouse years. Did he really keep Willa isolated for all that time or did they sneak off places together? Or give me something about his association with Constance. (That scene where she stabbed him with her shoe and made him lick the blood off was hot) Or give me future fic where he somehow gets resurrected again (maybe with Willa too?) and the fallout from that. Or just give me semi-crack along the lines of "five people Bobo Del Rey has gotten stuck in an elevator with throughout history, plus one person he threw down an open elevator shaft" or something like that. Or just give me worldbuilding from his POV about what it's like being a revenant. Heck, I'd even be thrilled with a thousand words about his reasoning behind his ridiculous wardrobe choices.

    I ship Bobo/Willa the most, but I would also be up for Bobo/Wyatt Earp, Bobo/Bethany, or Bobo having hatesex with Constance Clootie and/or Doc Holliday.

    Summary

    I would love to see anything about Loretta, whether it is what her life was like before we met her in canon, or missing scenes from any point during canon (going to school? her time with Mags? her time in foster care, dealing with foster parents and foster siblings? finally moving into her own place?), or something post-canon. Does she ever achieve her goal of becoming the weed queen of Kentucky, or does her life take a twist in some other direction? Does she ever look at herself and worry she has been more influenced by Mags than she likes? Did she really put all of the money she got from Mags into buying land, or did she use at least a little bit of it for having fun, and if so, what? Did she ever get Raylan or any of the other marshals into more trouble than we saw on the show? Does she ever get a chance to save someone? What would cause her to go on an awkward roadtrip with someone? Does she ever go on an adventure with an unlikely business partner?

    If you like AUs, I would love a Role Reversal AU fic where Loretta is the Marshal returning to Kentucky after twenty years away (with her past still more or less like we saw in the show, just shifted backwards) and having to try to keep a teenage Raylan Givens out of trouble as he digs coal with Boyd Crowder and contemplates following in his Daddy's criminal footsteps. I would also be up for a magical realism AU, or a daemon AU, or a "Loretta has a secret mutant power" AU, or any kind of AU where there are supernatural happenings afoot in the hollers, whether it's seeing ghosts, or needing to set booby traps to keep bigfoot out of the pot fields, or growing magic herbs to sell to witches instead of marijuana.

    I don't particularly ship Loretta with anyone, but aside from wanting to keep her relationship with Raylan platonic I'm not against shipping her with much of anyone either, and OC boyfriends or girlfriends are also fine.

    Summary

    I would love to see anything about Dixie and her adventures, either on her own or with any of the other characters in the show, regardless of whether it's major characters like Brisco or Bowler, more minor recurring characters like Pete, Aaron, Whip, Ellie, or Todd, or one-shot characters Dolly or Amanda. I would love to see something about what her time in China was like. Or any kind of story that tries to reconcile her conflicting pieces of backstory into a coherent whole. How did she end up romantically involved with two different members of John Bly's gang? Does she ever end up completely on the right side of the law, or does she keep occasionally dabbling in criminality when it suits her? Does she end up as ambassador to anywhere other than China? Does she and up on coinage from any country in addition to Mexico? Maybe on some stamps too for whatever reason? Did she ever get written about in the dime novels? Did she ever get her won spin-off dime novels all about her? I would love a story featuring tropey goodness like but not limited to what was in the original show, whether it's overly smart animals and people faking their deaths or accidental kidnapping and steampunk inventions or gunfights and fake psychics or whatever.

    For Dixie herself, I ship Dixie/Brisco and Dixie/Brisco/Bowler for stories set during or after canon and Dixie/Big Smith/Pete Hutter for pre-canon stories. For other ships, I like Pete/Aaron, Bowler/Lenore, and Bowler/Socrates, and I'm open to pretty much any other pairing or poly arrangement you think makes for a good story.

    Summary

    If we matched on this fandom, I have three words for you: skunk butt rug. No, seriously, we never even see the darn thing onscreen, but I would love any kind of a story that is in any way connected to or inspired by that skunk butt rug. Why? Because on one level the thing is hilarious (I never claimed my sense of humor was refined) while on another level it's kind of horrific when you think about it (if skunks are as intelligent/evolved as any other mammal in the world of Zootopia, then wouldn't giving someone a skunk butt rug be the equivalent of giving someone in our world an object made out of human skin?). Even if it's just the hair and not any skin, it's still pretty weird.

    So, yeah, please tell me about Nick and that skunk butt rug. Where/how/why did he get it? Does Zootopia have a secret black market for mammal parts? Is there some kind of legal market supplied by donors? Was it even a real skunk butt, or was it some kind of fake? Why did Nick ever think it was a good idea to give something like a skunk butt rug to Mr. Big? Does the skunk butt rug incident ever come back to haunt Nick in his career as a cop? Does the skunk butt rug turn up again as a clue in a case (maybe grave robbing, since it was supposed to have been buried)? Does a different skunk butt rug turn up and everyone thinks Nick is to blame? Is the skunk still alive and now wants revenge against Nick for the loss of its butt? Feel free to write something silly and full of butt jokes, or something dark and full of murder and regrets, or something that has a little bit of both.

    I'm fine with either shipping Nick/Judy or leaving their friendship platonic, whichever way you prefer to play it. I also ship Bogo/Clawhauser and Judy/Dawn Bellweather if you wanted to include either of those in the background of the story.

    Summary

    I ship Monkey/Beetle like burning. I loved how these two were showing signs of falling in love with each other all again over the course of the movie, and I really want to see a canon divergent AU where they either did not die or at least lived for a while longer after the revelation of Beetle's identity. I just want to see how they would have made things work (and I mean that on a general level; if you want to say they still have sex, then great, but I'd rather not delve too deeply into descriptions of ape or insect reproductive anatomy) between them when neither of them are exactly human-shaped anymore. What would daily life be like for them? How would the villagers react to them? How would the amnesiac Moon King react to them? What do they have left to teach Kubo? What future threats do they need to battle together? If you don't want to do a canon divergent AU, any kind of missing scene from the movie featuring these two interacting would be great too, whether it's a quiet moment or a battle, with or without Kubo or any of Monkey's family.

    I would love to see something post-canon about Gosalyn as she gets older, especially if it's about her growing up to be a hero/masked vigilante/S.H.U.S.H agent/etc. in her own right beyond just helping out Darkwing. What kind of adventures does she go on? Does she keep the Quiverwing Quack persona, or does she settle on something else? Does she stay a bad-ass normal like DW or does she get superpowers somehow? Does she work alone or join a team? Does attention from the media trying to figure out her identity ever get to be too much? Does she manage to balance crime fighting with normal life, or does she end up living in her hideout like DW was before he met her? If she goes to college, does she major in something what would help with crime fighting, or does she pick something unrelated, and if so then why? Does she have a nemesis?

    Feel free to include whatever other characters you want. I love the father-daughter relationship she has with DW and how they still clearly love each other even when they are disagreeing about things. My favorite recurring villains from the show are Bushroot and Megavolt, but OC villains are fun too. I'm also a big fan of the trope of reluctant team-ups between heroes and villains to fight against an even bigger threat.

    My biggest ship for Gosalyn is Gosalyn/Fighting Crime, but if you want to write romance, I don't really care who you pair her with as long as it isn't DW, Launchpad, or Negaduck. OC boyfriends or girlfriends are fine.

    Summary

    I am a ridiculous Robert Carlyle fan girl, and Plunkett and Macleane is one of those movies I stumbled into while going through his catalogue. I adore Plunkett's gruffness, his craftiness, his moxie, and his innate goodness. I think Macleane has an amazing arc throughout the film, too. He's selfish and conceited but also charming, and he grows into someone who's no longer quite so selfish. I BroTP these two, so while neither of them have to be straight, I don't ship them together romantically. I'm interested in what happens after the movie: how do they fare in America, how do they get to America, does Plunkett ever find love, how does Plunkett's and Macleane's friendship grow? Anything where Plunkett is a badass and Macleane is a rascal would be wonderful.

    Summary

    Gabriel and Vivian have been an OTP of mine since I read the book fifteen years ago. I remember being so invested in Vivian and Aidan, but the second Gabriel kissed her against his bike, I was hooked. I love the evolution of their relationship and Gabriel's patience with Vivian. I'd be so thrilled to see any exploration of events in the novel or pre-novel from Gabriel's point of view or anything between them in the future.

    Summary

    I've always been fascinated by Avon's and Stringer's friendship. How did Avon become the alpha in that relationship, the leader, when Stringer was just as capable and smart? When did their interests diverge to the point where their friendship turned into something bitter and past tense? Omar's another fascinating character, and again, I'm drawn to his relationship with Avon and Stringer, especially during seasons one and two. I'm really interested in an exploration of the relationships between these characters. Slash, if it happens, is more than welcome, but ultimately anything that is up to you. Any scene from these characters' lives is welcome and would make sure a wonderful gift.

    Summary

    King of the Hill is one of my two favorite television shows ever. (The other is Veronica Mars.) Its humor hits me in just the right spot. I love Bobby's optimism and his complete commitment to being himself. I love Bill's hopeless bumblings, his desperate desire to be a part of Hank's life, and how basic lack of dignity. Connie is another favorite: she's smart and sweet and generally a voice of reason. I would love to see an exploration of when Connie and Bobby are older or see their younger selves have an adventure with Bill. I pretty much love all of the characters and don't see anyone as a villain, so if Hank makes an appearance, I don't see him as a bad guy. I love humor and fluff but am also a sucker for knock-me-down-reduce-me-to-a-puddle angst.
