Sorry this is late! Feel free to pretend it doesn't exist if you've already started. (Or really, if you'd like, just plain feel free to pretend it doesn't exist.) If you check out my last Trick or Treat (or even Yuletide) letter, you'll probably notice that I've copied a lot over, including some of the structure.

General stuff first!

I love all of the fandoms and characters I'm requesting, so if one section seems longer or shorter than another, it's due to how much I had to say, not how much I love the request. (And also maybe an indicator of where I was when I started running out of energy and ideas and my wrist decided it was done.) They are all fandoms of my heart, and I'm excited at the possibility of receiving any of them.

Also, this letter is super long, so again, please don't feel obligated to read it all (or at all!). If you already have an idea of what you want to do from just the AO3 requests, go for it! This is all to (I hope) make it easier on you, and I am a big believer in optional details being optional. There being fic or art for my fandoms will make me happy. Everything else is icing on delicious, delicious cake.

This year I'm requesting art or fic in four fandoms: Dragon Age (Dorian Pavus, Female Inquisitor, Cullen Rutherford, Cassandra Pentaghast), Fallout 4 (Female Sole Survivor, Nick Valentine, Male Sole Survivor), The Librarians (Cassandra Cillian, Jake Stone, Ezekiel Jones), and Naruto (Guy/Gai, Kakashi). Each fandom section will include subsections as follows: general fandom, each character, trick prompts, treat prompts, art specific prompts. Feel free to skip straight to what you feel is most relevant. :D

Fair warning: this letter will contain spoilers, so if you have it on your "to watch/to read/to play" list and want to go into it with fresh eyes, you'll want to skip that section.

A note: I've received fic and art in the past for Naruto, which I loved! I just want more. If you matched me on one of the two requested characters (or both!), I am sure I will love whatever you make me, whether it's along the lines of the gifts I've already gotten or something entirely new.

For ease of stalking: tuesday on AO3, everysecondtuesday on tumblr

General Likes:

I'm happy with gen or romance. If you go the romance route, I'm good with f/f, f/m, m/m, poly, and ace.

I like both long and short fic, both detailed art and sketches so go where the muse leads you! That said, I am honestly not expecting anything more than the minimum, so please, please don't let this letter intimidate you: remember, a lot of it was cribbed from past letters, and what's new will probably be copy-pasted for future letters in other fests/future Trick or Treats.

A list of tropes and themes I adore include AUs (modern, regency, historic, magic, college, cyberpunk, steampunk, canon divergence, everyone lives, end of the world, all the AUs), arranged marriage & marriage of convenience, soulbonds & soulmates, pining, first times, apocalypse, worldbuilding, friends to lovers, IN SPACE, family, found family, friendship, political machinations, intrigue, time travel, mysteries, time loops, didn't know they're dating, magic, ghosts, shenanigans, drunken shenanigans, woke up married, prank wars, wooing, extended courtships, whirlwind romance, political negotiations, alliances of convenience, training, slice of life, character study, plot, pwp, developing relationships/friendships, character has the chance to re-do/relive events, aliens, robots, mermaids, monsters, dragons, reincarnation, pregnancy/adoption/kid fic, matchmaking, mysteries, isolation, trapped together, comedy of errors, competence, communication, codas, future fic, fusions - this list could go on forever, so I'll finally stop myself here.

For art, I like rough sketches, bright and dark colors to set mood, comics, scenery, single and group character poses, the cute and the creepy. It's always difficult for me to say what I like in art, because the truth is, everything. All stages, all skill levels, all types, I always like seeing what someone else comes up with.

In general feel free to go as dark or fluffy or creepy or cracked out as your heart desires. I'm excited for the possibility of either a trick or a treat.


Literally the only things that could keep me from reading a gift fic are non-con and rapeplay. For art, in addition to the previous, if you're ambitious enough to do a gif, please no strobing/flashing effect, as that can sometimes trigger a migraine.

Some General DNWs:

Because I listed AUs above, I feel like I should mention there are AUs I'm just not into anymore (though I have enjoyed some fic with them in the past) - slavery, serial killer, mafia, prison, and sex worker AUs.

I'm not really into infidelity (poly or marriage only as an arrangement is fine! I just prefer everyone involved to know and be okay with what's going on), underage, incest (my exceptions are not in any of these fandoms), or eye trauma.

Usually in exchanges I ask for even unhappy endings to come with a grain of hope, with exceptions listed for each fandom, but not this year! (Or, at least, not this fest!) You may kill the characters (all the characters) as much as you please. Please do tick the little warning box for permanent major character death, though, so I'll be prepared for it going in?

Dragon Age (Dorian Pavus, Female Inquisitor, Cullen Rutherford, Cassandra Pentaghast):

General Talk: I love all four of these characters to bits and would be delighted to receive fic or art for any of them. If you want to mix and match, some combos I'd love include Dorian&F!Inquisitor, Dorian&Cullen, Cullen/F!Inquisitor, Cassandra/F!Inquisitor. If you want to include other, unrequested characters for any of them to interact with, I would be happy with that, too! Every in-game friendship is dear to me, and I am down with all the canon ships, including the canon romances/potential romances, with the single exception of Blackwall/Inquisitor (though I did think Josephine/Blackwall was very cute!).

Dorian Pavus: My fave Dorian ships are Dorian/Bull and Dorian/M!Inquisitor, but I would be just as happy with gen. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include future or end-game fic/art, explorations of Dorian's relationship with his father, Dorian in Tevinter, and slice of life during his time in the Inquisition.

Female Inquisitor: My fave F!Inquisitor ships are F!Inquisitor/Cassandra (yes, I know it's not canon, and it kills me), F!Inquisitor/Cullen, F!Inquisitor/Solas, F!Inquisitor/Sera, and F!Inquisitor/Lace Harding. Actually, I will take any and all F!Inquisitor femslash gleefully. Again, I would be just as happy with gen. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include future or end-game fic/art, travel, new areas, getting sidetracked, and gift-giving.

Cullen Rutherford: My fave Cullen ship is Cullen/F!Inquisitor, but I am open to anything else you'd like to throw at me. Again, I would be just as happy with gen. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include future or end-game Inquisition fic/art, responsibility, time at the round table, Origins-era Cullen, DAII-era Cullen, and coming to terms with magic.

Cassandra Pentaghast: My fave Cassandra ships are Cassandra/F!Inquisitor, Cassandra/Leliana, and Cassandra/M!Inquisitor. Yet again: gen also delights me. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include future or end-game fic/art, Cassandra as Divine, Cassandra's love of (certain) books, her faith, and something from her time as Seeker.

Tricks: Red lyrium body horror. Bad endings. Swamps and hands waiting under the water. Spell gone wrong. Rifts and the things that come through.

Treats: Camaraderie. A good day. The joy of exploring. Trading tales over drinks or the campfire. Silly side quests. Something like happily ever after.

Art: Alternate tarot cards, casting magic, stolen moments, bottoms up, red lyrium, exhaustion, new armor.

Fallout 4 (Female Sole Survivor, Nick Valentine, Male Sole Survivor):

General Talk: I have no preference wrt Male or Female Sole Survivor (and have combined their sections accordingly). If you really want, you could even go with both. I haven't played every faction, but I am (mostly?) aware of how they go, so don't worry about spoilers. If you want to add more characters than the one we matched on, I'm fine with whoever else you'd like to add. I like all canon ships/romance options, as well as Sole Survivor/Nick Valentine and Sole Survivor/Deacon.

Female Sole Survivor/Male Sole Survivor: I love all Survivors, so feel free to go as nice/mean/sarcastic/all the questions as you'd like. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include settlement building, side quests, coming to terms with lost time, and living in the (dystopic) future.

Nick Valentine: Of the companions, Nick is one of my very favorites, and I remain disappointed he was not romanceable. I love his friendship with the Sole Survivor, and the hints of friendships with other characters. I will gladly take Nick/Anyone or Nick&Anyone or just Nick alone. Whether trick or treat, some things I'd be interested in include snippets of a case, settling in to Diamond City, waking up that first time, and Nick the person vs. Nick the synth vs. Nick the memories of a dead man.

Tricks: Raiders, mutants, deathclaws. Exploring vaults or finding last notes. Radiation, sickness, starvation. Memories, real and not.

Treats: Finding friendship in the strangest places. Rebuilding in the face of destruction. Bittersweet nostalgia. Saving the day. The Silver Shroud. Tiny robot models and a perfectly intact Giddyup Buttercup.

Art: Circuits, guns, smoke, antique, comfort, unexpected joy, bad (rad) weather.

The Librarians (Cassandra Cillian, Jake Stone, Ezekiel Jones):

General Talk: I love these three so much and miss this show terribly. I OT3 it hard, but also genuinely love their friendship. I like all the characters, so if you want to bring in anyone else, I would be fine with it. Also, in case it's not obvious, this is about where I ran out of energy/my wrist really started hurting despite all my careful breaks, not to mention this letter already being terribly late. So, to emphasize: I still love these characters/this fandom. Sorry I do not have individual character prompts. :(

Cassandra Cillian: My fave Cassandra ships include Cassandra/Jake/Ezekiel, Cassandra/Eve, Cassandra/Ezekiel, and Cassandra/Jake. I am down for Cassandra femslash in general. I would also be delighted with Cassandra&Anyone fic, or just Cassandra being awesome all on her lonesome.

Jake Stone: My fave Jake ships include Jake/Ezekiel/Cassandra, Jake/Ezekiel, and Jake/Cassandra. See above wrt Jake&Anyone or Jake by himself.

Ezekiel Jones: My fave Ezekiel Jones ships include Ezekiel/Jake/Cassandra, Ezekiel/Jake, Ezekiel/Cassandra, and Ezekiel/Awesome. I am pretty sure you could sell me on any Ezekiel ship but Ezekiel/Eve. . . . I probably would even go for that so long as it wasn't the two alternates. Ezekiel/Friendship or Ezekiel/Frenemyship is good, too.

Tricks: Something from a darker fairytale, something escapes the library, someone touches something they shouldn't.

Treats: Abusing teleportation for vacations, team-ups, cataloguing something fun.

Art: Artifacts, books, on the case, on a break.

Naruto (Guy/Gai, Kakashi):

General Talk: As mentioned above, my wrist hates me right now, so this is going to be much shorter than the earlier sections. Take it as read that I love Guy and Kakashi, together and separately. Guy/Kakashi is my forever OTP, but I also really enjoy their friendship. I adore the many characters of Naruto, so feel free to throw in anyone else you'd like.

Guy: If you're going for fic, I should mention that while I usually go with the Guy spelling, I'm fine with either, so feel free to use Gai if that's your preference. I ship Guy/anyone in his age group, and I'd be interested in reading Guy&anyone at all. Guy/Kakashi, as said above, is my absolute OTP, but I will be genuinely happy with whatever.

Kakashi: My fave Kakashi ship is Guy/Kakashi, but I'm also here for Kakashi/Tenzou. Kakashi/Loneliness is also something I love probably way too much.

Tricks: Mission gone wrong, bad dreams, injuries, genjutsu.

Treats: Downtime, challenge, a dream accomplished, comfort, cooking, trading tales of missions gone wrong in the most ridiculous ways.

Art: Injured, a moment's rest, sunrise, chakra, team photo, summons.

If you've made it this far, I'd like to thank you for participating in Trick or Treat. This is a delightful exchange, and I am excited for and about it.

My number one hope for my gift fic or art is that you have a good time with it, so let me emphasize again that I'm just happy that there will be another fanwork for one of these fandoms. This monster of a letter was mostly an excuse to enthuse about these fandoms, and I truly hope it doesn't put you off or make you worry about whether you can make any of the prompts work. Whatever you end up writing or drawing, I'm hoping it's something you enjoy about the fandom and have fun creating.

Have a happy Trick or Treat! ♥
