Hello, my dear Trick-or-Treat writer or artist!

First, thank you for signing up and for writing or drawing something for me! Before anything else, I want you to know that whatever you make, I'll be delighted to receive it. (This is also true for anyone kind enough to treat me!) I'm open to all ratings, all genres, all verb tenses and narrative persons, most kinks, and all art styles. While I love creepy and uncanny stories, as well as sad or bittersweet, I also happily devour sweet treats. If you play to your strengths and write or draw something that you enjoy creating, I guarantee that I'll love it. =D

If you're curious about what I've written or drawn, my fics can be found here on AO3, and my art can be found here on Tumblr.

Quick note on my prompting style: I threw a lot of different possible prompts into each request, but these are only suggestions to get you started if you're having trouble thinking of an idea. They're also intended as 'or' suggestions, not 'and' suggestions--I definitely don't need you to fulfill all or even any of the requests! If your muse tugs you in a different direction, follow your muse. (But be wary, as the witching season approaches. My muse has often been a foxfire mistress, in the past, and has led me into many an impassable swamp.)

Below, in addition to the prompts, I'll give you a few notes on what I love about the fandom and the characters I've chosen. It's wonderful if those notes inspire you, but if not, please focus on what you love about the fandom and characters.

Do Not Want: The only thing that I'd prefer you NOT write me is dubious or coerced consent (e.g., 'I didn't hear a no' or 'That "no" didn't sound very convincing'). I do not enjoy reading dubious or coerced consent, and I'd prefer not to have it in what you create for me. If you're drawing sexy fanart, I'd prefer for everyone involved to look like they're having a good time.

Again, thank you so much for writing or drawing for me!

Side note: Love to you, my Trick-or-Treat writer or artist!

Intimate verses

Look! No one saw the amazing
Burial of your one final dream.
Only the ungrateful and mean
Gave you a shoulder for weeping!
Get used to the cesspit that awaits!
Man, in this miserable land,
Surrounded by wild beasts, can only stand
By dishing out even stronger bites.
Take a match – light your cigarette!
The kiss, the friend, precedes the spit,
The hand caresses – before the stick.
If someone saves you from hell,
Stone the hand that treats you well,
Spit on those who try to kiss you!
