First of all, I apologize for not getting this letter up sooner. I've been suffering from a bad cold, and I'm still a bit feverish so bear with me if I don't totally make sense. Second of all, thank you so much for agreeing to write something for me.
A few words about what I don't like: I'm not a fan of really dark fics: gore, torture, excessive violence. Bloodplay, in particular, is a big squick of mine. I also only enjoy fluff sparingly. That's not to say I don't like romance or happy endings. But I do prefer a more realistic look at romantic relationships. Please, no excessive character bashing (going above and beyond what's already described in canon).
What I do like: Dialog, banter, realism, character studies, wit, hopeful endings, workplace relationships, and friendship.
I'm open to all ratings. Don't feel you have to write something porny if it's out of your comfort level. However, if you should so desire, I like foreplay, light bondage, kissing, frottage, blowjobs and cunnilingus. Also, blushing is a big kink of mine, especially when the character is trying something new.
I just started watching this series over the summer and I love it, so much so that I'd be ridiculously pleased with anything you should write.
Peggy Olsen is my hero. I loved watching the journey she's made from a secretary to a copywriter. I also find her relationship with Pete Campbell so absorbing. I do ship them, but a ship fic isn't necessary. I also adore Peggy and Don's working relationship. I don't necessarily ship them per se, but I love their friendship and bond, especially after watching this last season. (If you choose to ship Peggy and Don together in a fic, that's fine, but it's not necessary.) Fics examining either of those two relationships would be lovely. I'm not picky about ratings.
I've also become recently fascinated with Betty Draper's character. I've been saddened on how villain-ized her character has become in the last season, and I'm really rooting for her to grow as a character. Maybe a fic as a character study, or an examination of her life prior to Don… her hopes and dreams, perhaps? Or a future fic?
Also, feel free to incorporate other characters like Joan, Roger, Ken, etc.
This is my daughter's favorite movie, and I've watched it many times. (I have not had chance to read the book yet.) What I find so appealing about this canon is the abashed romance and the keen sense of adventure. It's such a fun story.
I specified in my sign-up that I'd adore the story about Una and Dunstan, perhaps after they are reunited, but I would be pleased as punch with any fic in this fandom.
"Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Murakami
I'm really interested in the character of Oshima, and I found myself shipping him with Kafka as I got farther into the book. I'd like to read a fic examining a future relationship between the two, shippy or otherwise.
A couple of alternatives.
- A fic examining Kafka and Sakura's relationship. Go as porny as you like. I kind of ship them even though I sense it may not be the healthiest relationship.
- Meeting Nakata was a life-changing event for Hoshino. What happens to him in the future (post-book).
