[purimgifts] Dear Author

Dear [community profile] purimgifts author:

Hi! And yay for yet another round of purimgifts!

I'm asking for genfic this year, I think. Canonical romance as a thing going on in the characters' lives is fine, but please don't make it the focal point of the story.

I would be extraspecially delighted if you do anything with canonically Jewish characters, or with canon characters interacting with Jewish OCs and/or historical figures. If you're writing something in a 'verse that doesn't have Jews and doesn't have any reason to have them (such as BSG or A:TLA), of course this does not apply -- though I would not say no to crypto-Jews (like Barbara Hambly's "Old Believers"). If you want to write me an AU where a non-canonically-Jewish character is (and has always been) known to be Jewish, that's okay too; if you want to write a canon-compliant story where a character has been Secretly Jewish All Along, let's just say I'm gonna need that to be really really convincing.

AUs in general I am pretty okay with, but I lean more towards the canon-divergence sort of AU than toward the completely transformative AU wherein characters are generally recognizeable but context has utterly changed. Crossovers are delightful, if they are within fandoms I have asked for; if you want to write me a crossover with something I haven't asked for but you suspect I'd like, see below re "if you have any questions." OCs are love, especially (for this fic exchange) Jewish OCs, if the setting is firm enough. Meta and fourth-wall breakage for comedic purposes are okay, especially in canons where that's a basic part of canon anyway.

Mood-wise I have no preference: scare me, make me laugh, make me cry, make me wistful and nostalgic, make me angry, whatever floats your proverbial.

If you don't know me and want a better idea of what I like, this blog and my tumblr may be of some help. If you have any questions, anonymous replies are open for this post.

Thank you and I look forward to reading!
