Hello Author!

I think this is the first time I've done this exchange. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

A few things you should know about me: I prefer angst over fluff (yup, even in YA), I like happy endings that come after struggle or discord, I love character studies and backstories. I love minor characters in fic, the chance to flesh out what we don't see on the page or screen. Not into pregnancy AU, high school or university AU, or modern AU. BUT I love canon-divergence or AUs within the given universe (a different meet-cute, or a different ending, for example). While I love angst, I don't love trauma, especially of the sexual variety. Not really into a lot of kink or graphic sex (especially for this exchange).

The Exchange at Fic Corner is a gift exchange for fic based on children's and YA books and short stories from picture books to edgy teen novels.  They are holding sign-ups for this exchange right now, due to end on Wednesday.  Would really love to see wider participation on this one!  Assignments are due August 21.

Dear Author,

That we matched on even one pairing is a pretty good sign, I think. I'm super excited about this exchange and I hope you are, too!

I know I put a lot of ideas in my sign-up, so this won't be very long on top of it. Just generalities and a little more detail where warranted.

Generally speaking: I prefer angst over fluff, I like happy endings that come after struggle or discord, I love character studies and backstories. Plot is awesome, especially character-driven stuff. Since this challenge is specifically pairing-driven, I should tell you - I'm not into pregnancy AU, high school or university AU, or modern AU. BUT I love canon-divergence or AUs within the given universe (a different meet-cute, or a different ending, for example). My pairings aren't canon, so no worries if you're wandering beyond canon constraints. While I love angst, I don't love trauma, especially of the sexual variety. Not really into a lot of kink or graphic sex.

Some specifics beyond what's on my sign-up )
