Dear author,

First of all, apologies that I'm unlocking this letter a little late! I was travelling the past few days and only had internet access on my phone, which made formatting a letter difficult.

Secondly, thank you so much for offering to write one of these amazing fandoms! I love each and every one of them, so whichever you end up writing, I absolutely can't wait to read your story.

I'm not the most active person in any fandom, so I've put together a few notes in general and on each fandom to help you get some ideas, which I hope is useful to you :D My AO3 name, for reference, is also mk_tortie.

All the specific prompts I've given for each fandom are just ideas - if you're inspired to write something else, go for it!

In General

There are a few things I love to see in fic:
- casefic
- plot-focused stories
- before/after the canon stories
- alternative endings/au diversions
- time travel
- travel to an alternate universe version of the canon universe
- fix it fic
- canon ships/friendships and friendship fic
- UST
- realisations of desire or romantic explorations, explorations of characters realising they're 'more than friends'
- hurt/comfort (overcoming ailments/injuries to come out on top, painful confessions, stronger/leader character needing to be helped)
- everyone thinks a friend/lover is dead but then they're not
- crossovers (between the fandms I've requested, or with any of: Buffy, Firefly, LotR, Stargate SG:1, Star Trek: TNG, Star Wars episode I-III or VII, Discworld (City Watch))
- dark!fic (permanent injuries mentally/physically, torture, Stockholm syndrome, dystopias, violence... ideally paired with hurt/comfort or with a not-completely-sad ending (ie bittersweet or happy ending rather than 'everything's still terrible'!). In general, an R rating for violence/dark elements is fine.

There are some things I wouldn't really want:
- ships other than those requested
- fluff!fic (ie, a little fluff is fine, but if that's all the fic is I would be a little disappointed!)
- PWP or sex scenes/porn as a major focus in the story (long sex scenes are just not my cup of tea)
- crack
- crossovers with canons I don't know
- gender-bending (except when it's canon)
- total AUs (eg hipster AU, high school AU, coffee shop AU...)
- any character bashing
- first or second person narrator unless it's canon (although switching from third to first/second for parts of the story is fine, just no first/second for the entire story please!)

Persona 3

I've played P3P and Persona Q, but not the Arena games. I don't mind cameo appearances from other characters alongside the main ship :) For the female protagonist, I prefer her to be called Arisato Minako.

Prompts by pairing:

Aragaki Shinjiro/P3 Female Protagonist/Kirijo Mitsuru/Sanada Akihiko - I love these four together, and I really would love anything at all for them: how they realised they all care for each other, or them all getting caught up in something dangerous in Tartarus and having to work together to get out of it and realising their feelings along the way/afterwards, or some OT4 h/c, or their lives post-game (feel free to hand wave the ending!) - maybe their individual struggles adapting to normal life, and helping each other through it?

P3 Female Protagonist/Hasegawa Saori - Any exploration of the protagonist and Saori falling for each other and working out their feelings would be lovely - either during their time at school together or maybe by letters or emails afterwards? I love the idea of them being kind of mutually awkward about it but circumstances pushing them together anyway, or maybe one of them taking the initiative (probably the protagonist!) and initiating a date... Or more?...

P3 Female Protagonist/Kirijo Mitsuru
I really like that both Mitsuru and the protagonist are really strong characters in their own way, and I'd love to see how that plays out in the power dynamics of their relationship - maybe with each of them having times they need help from the other, and getting used to accepting it? Some mutual h/c here would be lovely, if you like writing that! Alternatively I'd love to see a post-canon fix-it for this pairing - maybe Mitsuru works out a way (with all the weight of the Kirijo company behind her) to release the protagonist from her duties as the Seal?

Fandom-specific things I would love: cameos from the other characters, particularly Koromaru and Yukari or the P4 characters, gameplay elements (such as social link level ups or the battle system) incorporated into the story somehow.

Fandom-specific things I wouldn't enjoy so much: miscommunications leading to awkwardness (I get major embarrassment squick from this, it’s just not a trope I enjoy!), character bashing of any of the characters, jealousy as a major component of the story, fic focusing solely or primarily on domestic life (like cooking, buying groceries, etc)

Persona 4

I've played P4G and Persona Q, but not the Arena games or Dancing All Night. I don't mind cameo appearances from other characters alongside the main ship :) For the protagonist, I don't mind if he's called Yu or Souji.

Prompts by pairing:

Amagi Yukiko/P4 protagonist - This was my first ship in the game, and I still love it! I love how we gradually discover the iron in Yukiko's soul, and I would love to see her and the protagonist having some kind of adventure together - either in the TV world or post-canon. If you're going post-canon, epistolary fic could be fun here, or them travelling to meet each other or re-meeting after years apart or something similar. Alternatively, them getting trapped together in the TV world and having to work together to get out while exploring their feelings would also be awesome!

Dangan Ronpa and Super Dangan Ronpa 2

I've played Dangan Ronpa and SDR2, but I've only just started Ultra Despair Girls, so feel free to include characters/plot details from either of the first two but not the latter!

Prompts by pairing:

Kirigiri Kyouko/Naegi Makoto - I wanted so much more in-game for these two than we actually got! I would love to see more about their relationship post the reveal about Kyouko's past/father - I love Kyouko's cool-headed detective side, but I'd love to see her letting her guard down more around Makoto while also encouraging him to open up to her more, and them bonding that way. Something post-canon would also be great here - maybe they get into danger together in the new world outside the school, and have to help each other through? Mutual h/c would also be awesome!

Hinata Hajime/Nanami Chiaki - I loved the dynamic between Chiaki and Hajime, and I'd really like to see a story that gives them more time together to develop a relationship - especially if Hajime is somehow able to resurrect/save Chiaki on his return to the island! Alternatively, an AU where it turns out once Hajime returns to the real world that Chiaki was actually real would be awesome - how do they build a relationship after Hajime has discovered the truth about himself and had to rebuild from there, and now that he knows the truth about Chiaki? I like the idea that they're magnetically drawn to one another even through all the bad stuff they've both been through!

Fandom-specific things I would love: Chiaki referencing other video games, anything exploring a little more that everyone is actually inside a computer simulation for the entire game, references to the Future Foundation (since I felt this was left pretty open-ended/unexplored in the game itself), appearances from Sonia, Junko, Monomi, Monokuma, and/or Akane

Fandom-specific things I wouldn't enjoy so much: major appearances from Hiyoko or Mikan

So, thanks again, and I hope my requests haven't scared you off altogether! Definitely take everything I've written here as a suggestion to start off your creative process, not anything prescriptive at all - if you get an awesome idea when reading this, but it doesn't match any particular prompt, then go for it. I'm sure I will love it :D If anything here is really confusing, or you want to know more about my preferences that I've missed/forgotten here, then totally feel free to get in touch via the mod or through commenting anonymously here. I am really looking forward to reading your story, and I know if you love any one of these fandoms you must be an awesome person, so I'm really happy we were matched!

Good luck, and happy writing!
