Dear Author,

Thank you for signing up for this exchange! This is my first time participating, so I'm excited and a little nervous. If you're excited/nervous too, I'd just like you to know that I wish you good luck and hope you enjoy whatever you decide to write!

I'd really like you to play to your strengths and have fun when you write, but here's a general rundown of what I enjoy in fic:

I enjoy character studies and stories focused on relationship dynamics, especially if the characters/relationship grow and change throughout the story. I also very much enjoy friendships and other relationships being present within a romance-focused story and influencing the main relationship. Other pluses are pining, banter, teasing, jealousy, first kisses, and UST becoming resolved. If the story is darker or angsty, I prefer hopeful endings; I enjoy bittersweet stories. However, lighter/happier stories are more than welcome (as long as they don't come across like "everything is perfect and nothing bad has ever happened ever").
 
 
I have some more preferences and prompts, but they're fandom-specific, so I put them in the 'Description' section of my application. I'm also going to c&p them under a cut just in case (I'm not sure if that's what the 'description' section is for? :P like I said, first time). Feel free to ignore the prompts--they're just there in case you need inspiration.
 
 
Thanks again for writing for me! I want you to know in advance that I really appreciate it. I'm sure I'll love whatever you come up with!

A Song of Ice and Fire
If the characters are underage, I would prefer nothing sexually explicit between them (if both are underage, offscreen sex is fine; explicit sex between adults is more than fine). If rape or abuse are included, I would prefer for them to be in the past or offscreen, and for its inclusion in the fic to be limited to healing/recovery/emotional fallout of the victim. However, I do NOT want abuse or rape to be downplayed or dismissed, and if you aren't sure if you can handle writing it with the respect and gravity it deserves, please do not include it at all. Please don't go out of your way to bash any characters (IC dislike is fine).

I am not especially interested in who ends up on the Iron Throne; I don't like R + L = J either, but I won't object if it's hinted at or mentioned in the background. I really, really dislike Jon/Satin romantically, onesided or otherwise. If you choose a Sam pairing to write, I would prefer that it either be requited or that it's someone pining for Sam and not the other way around.

Blends of book and show canon are welcome (ie, show ages/appearances with book characterizations, references to past scenes in both canons, etc). I enjoy both canonverse and AU settings, but I have a special fondness for alternate canon AUs exploring "what-if" scenarios.

(Also, to clear up any confusion: somehow 'Alleras' got entered as 'Alerias.')

Some prompts/suggested topics: Sam fostering at Winterfell or Jon at Horn Hill, Sam running away to Oldtown to become a Maester instead of going to the Wall (potentially meeting Satin there while Satin's still in Oldtown, or Sam still winding up at the Wall), Alleras taking the black, Jon realizing he likes men and being confused/conflicted, huddling for warmth, Satin latching on to Sam at the Wall because Sam is kind and safe, Jon as Lord Commander and Sam as the Maester at Castle Black, Jon pining, Sam discovering Alleras is trans and swearing to secrecy. Again, feel free to ignore these or write something else.

Game of Thrones
If the characters are underage, I would prefer nothing sexually explicit between them (if both are underage, offscreen sex is fine; explicit sex between adults is more than fine). If rape or abuse are included, I would prefer for them to be in the past or offscreen, and for its inclusion in the fic to be limited to healing/recovery/emotional fallout of the victim. However, I do NOT want abuse or rape to be downplayed or dismissed, and if you aren't sure if you can handle writing it with the respect and gravity it deserves, please do not include it at all.

Some prompts/suggested topics: Sam fostering at Winterfell or Jon at Horn Hill, Sam running away to Oldtown to become a Maester (Tyrion being there as well would be interesting, or he could wind up on the Wall later somehow), Brynden Tully/Jaime Lannister/Tyrion Lannister taking the black, Jon realizing he likes men and being confused/conflicted, huddling for warmth, Jon becoming Brynden Tully's squire and developing a huge (one-sided) crush, Jon having gone to King's Landing along with his sisters, Jon being back at Winterfell post-resurrection. Again, feel free to ignore these or write something else.

Newsies
I would prefer exclusively film canon. However, I enjoy both canonverse and AU settings. If the characters are underage, I would prefer nothing sexually explicit (if both are underage, offscreen sex is fine; explicit sex between adults is more than fine). I would prefer no rape or abuse be included. Please don't go out of your way to bash any characters (IC dislike is fine).
 
Some prompts/suggested topics: a scene from the movie rewritten to include a kiss, anything dealing with Jack and David's different family situations and how that impacts their relationship, one trying to woo the other, Jack and David arguing/needling each other/being competitive, jealousy, making excuses to hold hands. Again, feel free to ignore these or write something else.

King Arthur (2004)
If the characters are underage, I would prefer nothing sexually explicit between them (if both are underage, offscreen sex is fine; explicit sex between adults is more than fine). If rape or abuse are included, I would prefer for them to be in the past or offscreen, and for its inclusion in the fic to be limited to healing/recovery/emotional fallout of the victim. However, I do NOT want abuse or rape to be downplayed or dismissed, and if you aren't sure if you can handle writing it with the respect and gravity it deserves, please do not include it at all. Please don't go out of your way to bash any characters (IC dislike is fine). I dislike Tristain/Galahad romantically.
 
I would prefer primarily film canon, but if the author wishes to include characters/elements from other Arthurian adaptations, that is fine. If the story is darker or angsty, I prefer hopeful endings; I love bittersweet. However, lighter/happier stories are more than welcome, and if the author chooses to ignore any of the deaths in the film, I won't complain.
 
Some prompts/suggested topics: outside POV, teasing, huddling for warmth, a ship through the years, reminiscing about home, jealousy, singing, gambling, first kisses, mutual pining, post-film Galahad/Gawain, competition, the stable scene with Lancelot and Arthur rewritten to have blowjobs. I have a tumblr for arthurian things (galaplaid.tumblr.com) with a tag for the movie (#ka04) if you need more inspiration. Again, feel free to ignore these or write something else.
