Dear HetSwap Author!

First of all - hello! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy writing; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!

GENERAL THINGS:
I love angst. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. I have to say that, while I adore dark pieces in general, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid - I didn't request it, but it's always a good example) and crossovers (except for maybe a Druella Black / TV!Morticia Addams fic because those would be amazing, even if not valid for this exchange but still a good example), nor do I like very fluffy fluff in the written word a lot. It doesn't have to be all darkness, destruction and gloom (unless you want it to be!), but 100% fluff is not something I particularly enjoy reading. I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.


FANDOMS:

Harry Potter
Relationships: Lucius/Narcissa, Druella/Cygnus

Oh, my Black sisters, how much I love them <3. I have two MAJOR OTPs in Harry Potter: One of them is Lucius/Narcissa, the other one Druella/Cygnus, who are solely based on my own headcanon. I have no words for how much I adore them - I will not go any further into my Druella/Cygnus headcanon, because if you decide to go with them, I would want to discover YOUR take on them, and not spoil you with mine! What I will say, though, is that I under no circumstances believe Cygnus (or Lucius) to be abusive of any kind but in fact to be a very loving and devoted husband and father. I also believe that Druella and Cygnus are connected by an incredibly strong, special and unbreakable bond, and I am convinced that they love each other deeply, fiercely and unconditionally! The same counts for Lucius and Narcissa as well, but I believe that their bond is not as special as Druella/Cygnus' which of course will not make their love any less.

Addams Family (TV 1964)
Relationship: Morticia/Gomez

Oh my God, I adore those two so much it's not even funny anymore. Morticia and Gomez' relationship is so beyond perfect and beautiful and amazing and it just gives me so many feels! (Which I pretty much say about all my OTPs, but it's true!) The series is delightfully fluffy despite the built in gloom and morbidity (which really doesn't appear morbid at all to them and it's just so cute) but there actually have been a couple episodes that had pretty good potential for angst; I would adore an angsty and feelsy Tish/Gomez piece more than anything, ngl! I've been craving it for an incredibly long time because I've sort of missed real angst moments in the show - and the few ones were resolved way too quickly - but fluff or flangst would also just warm my heart! (This is one of the few fandoms where I a also not entirely opposed to real fluff, haha.) Whatever strikes your fancy will be perfect there.

As I mentioned before, I will be happy with absolutely anything you choose to create, but I would ask you to stick to TV Show canon and characterisations; I'm not particularly fond of the movies and of what they do with Morticia and Gomez (they have their charm too and their relationship is great as well, but not as the Morticia and Gomez that were introduced to us in the TV Show, so I separate strictly between the canons), so all my love fully focuses on the TV Show characters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Relationship: Queenie/Jacob

OH MY QUEENIE <3. I fell in love with her SO MUCH when I saw the movie - I actually really liked most characters, but Queenie just stole my heart. I shipped her so much with Jacob and my heart broke at the end - if you choose to write this fandom for me, whatever you do with them will absolutely delight me, I am certain! Anything about them is amazing.

Gilmore Girls
Relationships: Emily/Richard, Lorelai/Luke

My true OTP in this show has always been Emily/Richard. I love them so much, I have no words for them, but... I adore them. I adore their love for each other, I adore everythinga bout them. Every moment between them, even the angsty and sad ones, even the ones in their time of separation, has been a delight to watch, and... Emily's grief in the revival broke my heart. It broke my heart into a thousand pieces. As for Lorelai/Luke - I've shipped them so incredibly hard from the very first second on, and GOD it's only getting more intense, haha. There is so much love amongst the two of them, so much love I feel for them, and generally so much adoration around... It's beautiful - from their slightly awkward beginnings to the relationship with all its ups and downs and then the end... The beautiful happy ending.. It's amazing. Everything about them is amazing and I really honestly could not imagine them with anyone else but... Well, each other!

I also do love the angsty side of Gilmore Girls, but then, I think I've already mentioned more than once that I am just a true sucker for ALL THE ANGST EVER. Whether you go with the show timeline, with the revival, or something in between... Anything will be perfect - I do adore the revival as well, so you cannot go wrong at all with anything!

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
Relationship: Phryne/Jack

Oh God, I have no words for how very much in love I am with this show. I'm only at the end of the first season (but I don't mind spoilers), and honestly, I adore Phryne. I truly do. I could write novels about how much I adore her, haha. And I really couldn't decide with whom I ship her more - Jack or Mac. Since this is the HetSwap, though, I don't have the option to pick Mac, so I was actually spared a lot of difficulties in deciding, haha. The chemistry between Jack and Phryne... It's just perfect - so much potential there, SO MUCH PERFECTION.

Just like with Addams Family, I've been looking for some angsty vulnerable!Phryne (it will certainly be fascinating to Jack AND Mac to watch her in a state like this, since she's usually so beyond strong) Miss Fisher fic everywhere but to no avail, so of course it would absolutely warm my heart to receive an angsty piece! If it starts going into a different direction, however, that's perfectly fine as well! Anything would be totally amazing <3.

The Mummy Series
Relationship: Evelyn/Rick

One pairing I have come to ship fiercely, forgotten about for a while and re-discovered with doubled intensity a couple of years ago, are Evelyn and Rick O'Connell. I don't really have too much to say about them except that I turn into a giant bundle of feels when I think of them and that Evie!centric (or Evie!POV) fic/artwork would be amazing. My favourite movie in the series is The Mummy Returns, mostly because it is so great to see that after nearly a decade their relationship has blossomed in the way it did, and that they have crafted a truly strong, unbreakable bond that connects them, which is absolutely beautiful. I would much prefer the piece to revolve around the Mummy Returns timeline, but as long as you stick to Rachel Weisz as Evie, everything will be great!

Again, though, I want you to be happy with what you create - you decide what to do. What matters the most is that you enjoy working on the piece. Thank you so very, very much in advance, I really cannot wait to see what you come up with! ♥
