For Trick or Treat Ex 2015

First of all, thank you for signing up to this exchange! I only really got back into writing fiction last year after a significant break, and exchanges like this have been my way of both making friends in writing and wiring up my brain to the development process all over again. I love getting feedback from writing in exchanges like this, but also there's a certain pleasure it has to be said in giving someone a gift knowing it's something they're going to enjoy.

But you're here because you're creating for me, which is a whole other kettle of fish. I try not to be too picky in my demands, and you can just jump on AO3 and go from the bare bones of what I've provided and pretty much you'll turn out something I'll enjoy. But for those people who want a little more persuasion and direction, that's what a letter is good for. Take something, or a part of an idea, or turn the whole thing on its head, I really don't mind, just please, I hope, enjoy creating for me as much as I do for my giftee!

Please feel free to include as few or as many characters as you like, engage in crossovers at will (explained or not), so long as you adhere to my one 'do not want', which is please don't bring in any OCs that are in there just to ship with a canon character. That's it. Everything else is free ball.

My fandoms (subheadered below) are (not an exhaustive list, but these are my sign ups based on nominated tags)
due South
Battlestar Galactica
Star Trek; TNG
Star Trek; Voyager
Gotham (TV)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Characters (signed up): Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Castiel
Canon point: Finished S10, no spoilers!
Other characters: Alastair, Azazel, Crowley, Lucifer, Gabriel, God, Chuck, Bobby, Dead!Winchesters etc.
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: old demon knights hanging out shooting the shit about Lucifer, archangel siblings pre or post fall, Castiel and the other members of his unit, dumb family Winchester stuff, adventures in time, everything is written in Chuck's narrative style, or from the Impala's perspective, or in third person like an SPN documentary... Crossovers and drunk nights out and the things that happen in karaoke bars.
Tricks: I am all for horrorful things, especially in this fandom. I mean what fandom does horror best? Oh wait. But you know...you get the point. For this, if you're going to go down the dark and or darkshippy option, torturing one of my signed up guys with any of the demons/angels mentioned in 'other' is a workable option. I mean, if you have to.
Treats: I ship all sorts of stuff in this fandom, but I admittedly lean toward the darker kind of ship, i.e. bad guy/good guy, or good guys who are getting together for disfunctional reasons. Basically ship any demon/angel/brother from the above list with Dean and make him snark all the way through it and we're golden. Treats would also include gen where Dean is loving on his car (not like that! gen! a soft turtlewax rubdown!), or cutesy humorous things which play humorous with what is usually spooky. Like spn. I also love 4th wall breaking, so put the Winchesters boys in a convention hall listening to their actors doing a Q&A, idk.

due South

Characters (signed up): Ray Vecchio, Ray Kowalski, Benton Fraser
Canon point: Finished!
Other characters: I love the other characters in this, but if you choose this one for me, please focus on (or one of) our trio
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: Here is my secret santa letter, which has some general ideas
Tricks: I am unhelpful and haven't the slightest idea how you'd trick me for dS, but that's probably why you should /squint Try me.
Treats: Give me all the fluffy shippy stuff and omg puppies. I don't need to tell you more than that.

Battlestar Galactica

Characters (signed up): Leoben Connoy, Kara Thrace
Canon point: Finished!
Other characters: Any other characters are fine in this, but mostly Cylons pls
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: I love my Cylons and anything where they're all interacting is amazing.
Tricks: Give me terrible horrible scary and gross, whether humans are responsible or Cylons are, or it's the universe being dreadful to everyone ever. Give me bad ends and dead people and any other horrible things you can think of.
Treats: Good shippy Leoben/Kara is not a treat, it's cruel and unusual, and you can trick me with it and I'll be terribly happy, but if you want to treat me give me gen of them sniping at each other or one of them doing their own cool thing or something. Kara in love with flying or just Cylons being dumb about normal human things or some rambling about god and love and space.

Star Trek (generally)

Characters (signed up): The Doctor (Star Trek) Kathryn Janeway (VOY) Tom Paris (VOY) Naomi Wildman (VOY), Jean-Luc Picard (TNG) Guinan (TNG) Q (TNG) William Riker (TNG) Data (TNG)
Canon point: Series complete, extended material so so. I've read most of the Q novels, and the two novels following Voyager, so EU things involving those are a ok.
Other characters: Background characters are all good! All shipmates, aliens, various family and visitors, Lady Q, BB!Q, made up diplomats, crossover characters and historical characters in holoform or otherwise.
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: Anything that shows the character of these great characters and develops them, things that challenge me the way the show did, or clever writing. I love funny Trek cartoons, anything that brings characters together who would rarely meet, and time travel.
Tricks: Creepy Borg assimilation stories, unf. Tom Paris' holodeck program, the Halloween episode!
Treats: A treat in this fandom would be anyone shipped with Q, aforementioned funny cartoons or cartoonish moments, or Spock and Janeway sitting down to have tea together. Just. If you know absolutely it would make your own little Trek heart squeal with glee it would probably delight me too. Naomi Wildman or Alexander get advice from their respective shipmates regarding celebrating Halloween. SHOW ME.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Characters (signed up): Spike (BtVS) Angel (BtVS) Drusilla (BtVS) Buffy Summers (BtVS) Willow Rosenberg (BtVS) Rupert Giles (BtVS) Xander Harris (BtVS) Ethan Rayne (BtVS)
Canon point: Up to S7, no comics etc.
Other characters: Anyone is good as a background character, or canon alternate universe stuff is fun too, trips to LA, so feel free to bring in anyone involved in that.
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: I prefer my Buffy canon back when I understood it and the supplementary material/meta didn't make me want to pull my hair out. I just love me some boring old scoobies in their sitting on a hellmouth high school talking about snoopy and stabbing vampires. If I like shippy stuff, it's set pre actual shippy stuff, or in the case of vamp/vamp ships back in time to pre series, or post Angelus reunion but before Hell, if possible.
Tricks: Buffy is a great series for tricks. One of my favorite episodes is actually the Dracula one just because it is tropey and dumb and beautiful. So hammer horror style crack, or real serious kinderstod/gentlemen style monsters are all awesome tricks. I love grimdark aus and becoming a monster povs, canon or non-canon. Angelus/Buffy, or Rupert and Ethan getting it on......
Treats: For shippy stuff in this canon I love unrequited love or unrequited love becoming requited. Xander/Willow, Buffy/Willow, Spike/Dru, Spike/Buffy, Giles/his guitar. I also love crossovers with other creepy fandoms like X-Files and SPN.


Characters (signed up): Jim Gordon (Gotham (TV)) Harvey Bullock (Gotham (TV)) Edward Nygma (Gotham (TV)) Bruce Wayne (Gotham (TV)) Alfred Pennyworth (Gotham (TV)) Selina Kyle (Gotham (TV))
Canon point: Finished S1
Other characters: Including other characters or bringing in things from elsewhere in the various DC canons is all good as far as I'm concerned. Bring in a new villain, or bring back an old one.
Plot ideas/things I like reading about: I like to get my motive fix, getting right inside the head of the characters involved, or cute Bruce and Alfred or Bruce and Selina or Selina and Ivy things. I don't read much of this fandom but I can imagine what I want to read. Anything that expands on Jim and Bruce's relationship.
Tricks: Gotham is a dark and horrible place, show the young, optimistic Bruce how terrible Jim Gordon's mob world is, or reflect on Alfred's pain after getting so badly injured, what it would mean if he died.
Treats: Cute kidlets doing cute kidlet things. I'm not much of a shipper in this fandom. Or Nygma discovering the joy of riddles! Halloween style fic, or something nice happening in Gotham for once. A parade!

Due South Sekrit Santa 2015

A new year, a new Santa! Hello secret gift giver, and welcome to my letter! I think, as it turns out, I covered a whole lot of what I do and don't like in my descriptions, but I did want to personally thank you for gifting for me this year.

Last year was my first time returning to any fandom and writing for it, and doing it in the form of gift giving was really an enormous joy. I love writing things for people, and I love receiving things that were made just for me--it fills me with the warm fuzzies. Mostly it was the warmth and inclusiveness of everyone in the due South fandom that welcomed me in that stuck with me well after the fact. I was thrilled to receive a fantastic gift last year, which now is part of a series from the talented Butterfly Ghost, and I enjoyed writing Santas so much that I wrote extra.

I love due South immensely, and I think I've made it very clear in my requests that something red moving fast is all it takes to distract me. Compose a gift for me with the love that you yourself have for the fandom, and I'll love it with all my heart. That's all I want for Christmas.
