(i am so excited for this one :D)

Hi! Thank you for your patience, writer, and I'm really sorry for the ridiculous delay. But, forwhatever it's worth, here's more details on everything I signed up with.

I'll be honest, my only exposure to soulmate tropes is through the occasional Tumblr post, so pretty much anything you write will be new to me :D


White Collar: Neal Caffrey/Sara Ellis; Neal Caffrey/Alex Hunter/Sara Ellis; Sara Ellis/Alex Hunter.

I love all three of these characters, individually and as a collective. Neal is basically my punching bag. I love inflicting various kinds of whump on him. Sara is my precious lonely girl, she's a bit of a self-insert who already exists in canon, except not quite, except yes. She pretty much takes what she wants, and is also not a villain, which is awesome. Alex... I'm still getting to know her, but I have a feeling she's got feelings buried somewhere down. (Deep, deep down.) She looks out for herself, and her agenda is the most important one in the room, far as she's concerned.

Medically Malignant Soulbonds/Soulbonds Cancerous to One's Soul
I don't know about you, but I can practically see Neal guilting himself over this, because of course it has to be his fault, that idiot puppy. On a more general level, will they or won't they try to be soulbonded despite the risk? If the risk manifests after the bonding, do they stay that way or do they break it? Can they break it? What's the treatment process like? Can it be treated? What's the prognosis? Does the cause lie in how the soulbond was formed (under duress, without consent, something like that?)

Injuries Transfer to Soulmate
Again, Neal guilting himself over this. Because of course he would. Only here for the angst :D

Multiple Soulmates
See: OT3 Though the mechanics could be interesting. How is it possible? Is there a ritual? Does it just click into place and ignore the monogamous world standard? Or is it the world standard?

One-Sided Soulbond
Neal, forever. That boy was made to pine for things and people he can't have. Alex, too, tends to deny herself some pleasures for the sake of a larger plan that only she seems to be aware of. Sara would probably be the reason the soulbond is one-sided. She doesn't let people in easily.

Refusing To Admit That You're Each Other's Soulmates
This one was made for Alex and Sara. They both seem like the kind of people who dislike the idea of determinism and fate and destiny, and they'd want a choice. Oh, the angst :D

Soulbonding as Body Horror
How does the bond degenerate the human body? Does it work in a similar way to the medically malignant soulbonds above? Is the bond too beautiful, too powerful for the frail human body to contain? Or is it a corrupt force, working to weaken and possibly cause the extinction of humans? Does it have to do with contact between two souls - maybe it's too much for one body to have contact with more than one soul? Are people aware of how it works, or do they just continue to bond regardless of the risk? Is it that only a subset of bonds degenerates the body? Why?

Soulbonding: Souls Can be Stolen
Neal and Alex, yes please. The moral issues alone are such lovely angst fodder. What if they're complicit, willingly or not, in a black market? What anti-thievery measures exist for this kind of thing? I imagine babies are prized if soul thievery is so rampant that only the rich can hang on to their souls with any degree of certainty. Why are these souls stolen in the first place? (Damn, I'm starting to wish I requested this for Shoot - this suits the theme of POI so well.) OOOH, but Sara as a recovery agent who specializes in returning souls to their rightful owners. Goddamn, I love this one.

Soulmates in a BDSM Universe
All of these lovelies tbh. They're not conventional in the thing resembling our universe, I doubt they would be in this one. What are the expectations placed on the various orientations in this universe? How do they subvert them? How do they find each other? (I see Neal as a sub-leaning switch and Sara as a dom. Alex I'm not too sure of.)

Soulmates Share Writing On Skin
Neal's writing? Because I bet anyone would be honoured to carry around a permanent mark that was designed by him. Words significant to their relationship? Words they both/all live by? I dislike the more deterministic soulmate tropes, but writing is just vague enough to pique my interest without being like a timer, which tbh takes all the mystery and fun out of the thing.

Your Ghost Can't Move On To The Afterlife Until Your Soulmate Is Dead Too
S6 spoilers

This one's here only for the angst factor tbh. Also, S6 ending. What if Sara and/or Alex dies and is all ready to meet Neal again, except that the bastard isn't dead? I can only imagine one/both of them vengefully haunting him and making his life hell. Except that then they see he's a very sad little kitten, and then... I don't know xD

Person of Interest: Root/Sameen Shaw

I love these two murderous cupcakes. I've only just finished S3, but I should be done with the series by the time fics are revealed, so no worries about spoilers.

Injuries Transfer to Soulmate
Root is constantly annoyed because of this because damn it, she's recuperated from bullet wounds more often than she's even been shot at. But also omg, Shaw while Root is being tortured by Control in S03E12?! Trying to help Finch while in the same pain as Root, and deaf in one ear? Oh man. H/C candy, right there.

Soulbonding as Body Horror
(c&p'd from above)
How does the bond degenerate the human body? Does it work in a similar way to the medically malignant soulbonds above? Is the bond too beautiful, too powerful for the frail human body to contain? Or is it a corrupt force, working to weaken and possibly cause the extinction of humans? Does it have to do with contact between two souls - maybe it's too much for one body to have contact with more than one soul? Are people aware of how it works, or do they just continue to bond regardless of the risk? Is it that only a subset of bonds degenerates the body? Why?

Your Ghost Can't Move On To The Afterlife Until Your Soulmate Is Dead Too
(yes, I've been spoiled for the death :/) Root would be the most annoying ghost though. Constantly frustrated by her immaterial nature. (What if Shaw becomes Root's analog interface? :D)

Coping With Soulmate's Death
How does Shaw cope? What's her process? DABDA or bullets?

Haunted By Soulmate's Ghost
This is canon. Shaw, haunted by Root's voice because the Machine still uses it.

Mutually Assured Soulbond-Destruction
This is canon. I don't know the details, but yep. Canon.

Having A Soulmate Is Simultaneously The Best And Worst Thing That Can Happen To A Person
This is canon. For Shaw, having Root as a soulmate is exactly this. (Admittedly, that's more specific to these two than general to a universe of soulmates, but well.)

Soulbonding is Illegal
And of course, that's exactly why Root wants to do it.

Soulmates Die If They Fall In Love With Each Other
This is canon. But what if they knew this beforehand? What if Shaw thought she was safe from this because of her stone cold robot routine? What if Root was perfectly fine with the consequences of loving Shaw? Ugh, these two. *hugs*

Unable to Form a Soulbond
Both these cupcakes, tbh. Shaw, because she believes herself feelingless, and Root because, well, Root. Or maybe it's more specific than that? Something about the way both of them are specifically that prevents them from bonding?

Moana: Te Fiti/Moana Waialiki; Ocean/Moana Waialiki; Moana Waialiki & Tala Waialiki; Ocean & Moana Waialiki

This is the polar opposite of everything above. Moana is too pure for life. I just. It's beautiful. Moana is the sweetest character ever, and she deserves the best.

Daemon Settles When You Meet Your Soulmate
Te Ka

Family Members As Platonic Soulmates
Tala and Moana :D

Dreaming of Soulmate
Moana dreaming of the ocean?

Magical Powers Awaken When You Meet Your Soulmate
Te Fiti gives Moana powers?

Only Soulmates Can Make Music Together
Moana is a musical, after all c:

Soulbonded to Someone Who's Lost Their Soul
Moana and Te Fiti, for a while there? Until she restores the heart? Or her and the ocean, while Te Fiti is powerless?

Soulbonding: Souls Can be Stolen
The heart of Te Fiti also contains her soul/an important part of her soul?

Soulmate-Induced Immortality
Moana with ocean or Te Fiti. (Cameo by Maui and wind?)

Soulmate-Identifying Marks
The tattoos that everyone on the island gets as a rite of passage?

Soulmates Share One Another's Pain
Moana with ocean or Te Fiti.

Dear writer,

Thank you for waiting patiently while I gathered enough wits to put this together. I tend to sort my letter by character and ship. I hope that works for you c: Other letters I've written are more detailed and some of the characters and ships match - you can find last year's SSR Conf. letter here, and a letter for another fest that I signed up for with Agent Carter here.

Peggy Carter
BAMF. <3 Spy shenanigans? Beginnings of SHIELD? Early backstory, when she wasn't the confident badass we know and love? (No mention of the conspiracies surrounding her brother, please. I hate that ending storyline with a vengeance.)

Dottie Underwood
Love her to pieces <3 Backstory for her please! Her pesudo-Red Room past fascinates the hell out of me. Also post-S2 fic. Where does she go, what does she do? Does she have resources to fall back on? Old allies? Does a person like her even have allies? Does she have to learn how to survive in a world where she needs to make at least a few true friends to make it, or does she just lie her way through to the end?

Ana Jarvis
I adore this darling human being! She's such a sweetheart. She'd probably be baking for someone in distress. (Spiked with liquor, of course.) Or making garter-holsters for Peggy to match all her skirts. Or cheerfully keeping a lookout and being an excellent distraction while Peggy does some agent/spy thing. She's seriously awesome. (I probably should have requested Ana & Peggy, huh?)

Whitney Frost
Scare the crap out of me with this fabulous villain! She is truly terrifying, as she should be. What if she'd ended up with the world at her feet? What if she'd become famous for her brain before her looks? Would she ever even have chosen to go into acting?

Peggy Carter&/Dottie Underwood
Oh man, these two. Dottie kills me with her A+ flirting game and Peggy is so gloriously oblivious. That line in that episode where they're both tied up in that basement, where Dottie goes "If I get free before you, there's no telling what I'll do...". What would she have done? There was so much innuendo in that line. (Was I the only one who heard it?) If you're writing full on shipfic, I don't think these two have a "normal" relationship - they probably either meet up secretly to hatefuck from time to time, despite (or because of) their grand rivalry, or they're manipulating each other, hard, and they have ulterior motives (or at least Dottie does).

Dottie Underwood&/Whitney Frost
I honestly think anything resembling a romantic relationship between these two would be twisted and really unhealthy. I'd love if you explored the dynamics of that. A villainous team-up would be awesome too! These two together could basically be unstoppable.

As you can probably tell from the above, I adore darkfic and angst. But don't worry if you're not comfortable with those - I'm also perfectly happy with fluff (as long as it's not too sickeningly sweet)

My usual c&p general likes + dislikes:

General fic likes: ANGST. Dark!fic. Physical hurt, emotional hurt (comfort optional). Hurt character resisting comfort for reasons. Competence porn. Realistic BDSM . Intimate and/or tender moments. Vulnerability. Character(s) losing control (over emotions, preferably). Extreme loneliness (make me cry!). Prose-poetry. Light fluff.

General fic dislikes: Suicide, domesticity (babies, curtain!fic, etc.), embarrassment (I have a sizable embarrassment squick.) Please note that embarrassment is not the same as erotic humiliation (which btw is HOT.)

For this fest, I'm also going to say no character deaths, because I'm very prone to suicidality myself right now. I'd also appreciate if you could avoid dealing too heavily/deeply with any kind of depression. I usually read these kinds of fics as a sort of bandaid ripping exercise, but my brain is just way too fucked up right now.

Thank you so much! Please rest assured that I'll adore pretty much anything you come up with for these characters and ships.

Sapph.

And as usual, I went overboard :P But I really don't know how not to, and I'm going to stick with what feels right, because I'm tired of stuffing things away, and if I can't be at least a little more honest than I usually am on the internets, then where?

Clicky!
