Hello Secret Mutant gifter!

I'm going to copy a good chunk of this letter from last year's for general ideas and then go into the specifics:

Firstly, thanks for being part of a great exchange! I will truly love anything that you create for me, no matter what it is (I love gifts really, I do!)

Use those prompts as a jumping off point, but as many others have said, if they don't spark you, go with something from here and I'll love it all the same.

Things I adore: AUs (any time, no really), size kink, banter/snark, angst with a happy (or hopeful depending on the circumstances ending). I'm a fan of A/O dynamics, but that's not at all a requirement. To that point, I'm also okay with dub-con and in some cases non-con (see A/O and it's faults).

I adore history (hello college major) and so the more accurate anything is the better. (I have a healthy suspension of disbelief when I need it so crack is fine too.)

This list is by no means inclusive. You're welcome to look through my AO3 bookmarks to get an idea of what I read (and even my own writing for what I've done before). I'm a huge fan of unconventional ways to tell a story, so telling me something out of sequence is amazing.

If you're an artist, I hope that something in the situation of a prompt can inspire you, but again, it's not at all a requirement. Giving me some slice of life piece is more than acceptable and in fact, if you're up for it, you could just as well create something to go with any of my stories (save the work I did with Nekosmuse and the Actors 'verse as those are really not mine in the same way; my RBB fics are sort of off limits for the reason that art already exists). It's really up to you what you want to do.

Character wise, I'm a fan of Erik (for all his faults), Charles, Raven, Emma (for all her issues). Ensemble stories/pieces are also great.

Specifically to the prompts, this year I went full out with lyric inspiration in the form of Weezer lyrics.

Prompt 1 is my gen prompt and "In the Garage" is one of my favorite songs. I know that in canon both Charles and Erik have really crappy childhoods, so if you want to incorporate that into a modern AU, I'm game!

Basically, this prompt is me looking for Charles or Erik (or anyone else) being nerdy and geeky. Into D&D, RPing, whatever it is, but this space, their "garage" is safe haven.

Prompt 2 is open as anything else I can think of. I just like the sentiment of the song and what it could mean for Charles and Erik.

Prompt 3 has its roots in a song that I regularly try to apply to my OTPs. But, there's a sense in this song about what I think Erik might think either after the beach or years later.

Prompt 4 is sillier than the others, but I always see both Charles and Erik from FC and even from other sources (comics the other movies) as being on opposite sides. But I'd love to see them make it work.

As with everything here, these are only starting point, and really run however you want with these. If you have specific questions, feel free to ask PJ/[personal profile] ninemoons42 for she knows me very well.
