Dear Sweet Trick-or_Treat Writer:

First of all, you rock! Thank you so much for taking the time to participate in an exchange. At the very least, you can know that we have similar tastes in at least one tv show.

Don't tell anyone, but the sad truth is that I am super-easy. :) Write a trick or a treat that you enjoy writing and I'm sure I'll love it and enjoy reading it. In an effort to help, I'll tell you my general likes/dislikes and also give a few prompts for the requested fandoms.

But above all, have fun. If you find that the suggestions feel like a burden, then ignore them and write the trick or treat that interests you. True passion shines through and makes a story special.

I like...
angst, UST, longing looks, long-repressed feelings that explode one day, kid fic, teamy goodness, well-done hurt/comfort, AUs, roads not taken in canon, zombies, wacky road trips, old friends, handsome strangers, ghost stories cross-overs (Leverage, SPN up to S5, Veronica Mars, Jericho, Graceland, Nashville, Sons of Anarchy, Friday Night Lights, The Big C, Orange is the New Black), crazy decisions that are right even though they seem so very wrong, 2nd person narratives, porn that reveals more than just naked bodies, unreliable narrators, opening your presents on Christmas Day rather than Christmas Eve, and long deep slow kisses that last three days.

I do not want..
passivity, first-person narration, incest, non-con, non-canon slash, porn without plot, child death or grevious injury, and misusing the words less and fewer.

See, I told you I was easy. Now, the prompts...

True Detective -  I love the characters in this show. I also love the banter-y but difficult and tense relationship between Rust and Marty.

Treat: Trick-or-treating - Marty and Rust take the girls and talk casework discreetly. I'd love to see a conversation between Rust and Audrey, either during her tearaway teenage days or after the S1 finale. I think they're kindred spirits, in a way, and I'd love Audrey to get a chance to talk about what's going on in her head. But it doesn't have to be Audrey - it can be Marty and Rust.
Trick: I suppose the Southern Gothic setting is ripe for a trick!

Orange is the New Black - My goodness, how I love the awesome characters in this show. I'd really be happy with anything  I'd prefer a treat here to be more in terms of fluff or character study, no porn on this one, please. I pretty much love all the characters although I can't stop thinking about Miss Rosa. But seriously, this is one area where I cannot get enough stories and I love all the characters.

Treat: Friendship caper featuring Poussey and Taystee. Red giving mothering advice to Daya. Crazy Eyes and Pennsatucky ending up in a talent show together because no one will partner with them.

Trick: Miss Rosa comes back as a ghost.The inmates telling ghost stories during the storm/power outage.

Fargo - If there's a running thread through all the shows I love, it's the characters. Fargo is no exception here and I gravitate toward the emotional center of the show: Gus and Molly (and Lou and Greta).

Treat: I'd love a scene from the courtship of Gus and Molly.
Trick: If you're inclined toward a trick, I bet Lou knows a lot of awesome ghost stories and I also bet Greta isn't half as brave as she thinks she is.

Sons of Anarchy - I'd love a birth story for Thomas, nothing graphic, but Gemma being nursemaid and birthing partner seems ripe for comedy and pathos. I'm also a sucker for backstory and would love to know more about pretty much any of the characters, especially Chibs. I do love Jax and I am so very curious about what his and Tara's high school relationship would have been like. I know this is more generic than anything that lines up in a trick or treat, but hey, surprise me, I'm sure I'll love it.

Leverage - A friend once told me that the best thing about Leverage is more threesomes/moresomes per capita than any other fandom. And, indeed, if you're writing Leverage I can't see how you can resist writing a treat of porny goodness featuring the best OT3 ever? If that's not your cup of tea, no worries.

Treat: Aforementioned porny goodness OT3, a wacky road trip.
Trick: A Zombie AU. That one time when the con went really bad, really fast.

And I think that's everything. Happy writing and thanks again!!!
