If you check out my last Trick or Treat (or even Yuletide) letter, you'll probably notice that I've copied a lot over, including some of the structure.
General stuff first!
I love all of the fandoms and characters I'm requesting, so if one section seems longer or shorter than another, it's due to how much I had to say, not how much I love the request. (And also maybe an indicator of where I was when I started running out of energy and ideas and what has gotten at least partial copy-paste treatment. Sorry, RimWorld.) They are all fandoms of my heart, and I'm excited at the possibility of receiving any of them.
Also, this letter is super long, so again, please don't feel obligated to read it all (or at all!). If you already have an idea of what you want to do from just the AO3 requests, go for it! This is all to (I hope) make it easier on you, and I am a big believer in optional details being optional. There being fic or art for my fandoms will make me happy. Everything else is icing on delicious, delicious cake.
This year I'm requesting art or fic in seven fandoms: Dragon Age (Varric), Dwarf Fortress (Cat, Dwarf, Forgotten Beast, Kobold, Necromancer, Overseer), Fallout 4 (Deacon), Naruto (Guy/Gai, Kakashi), RimWorld, The Scumthorpe Files (any), and Rubyquest (Red, Ruby). Each fandom section will include subsections as follows: short summary/promotion and links (for smaller fandoms), general fandom talk, characters-specific prompts (where applicable), trick prompts, treat prompts, art prompts. Feel free to skip straight to what you feel is most relevant. :D
Fair warning: this letter will contain spoilers, so if you have it on your "to watch/to read/to play" list and want to go into it with fresh eyes, you'll want to skip that section.
A note: I've received fic and art in the past for several of my requested fandoms, which I loved! I just want more
. If you matched me on one of those, I am sure I will love whatever you make me, whether it's along the lines of the gifts I've already gotten or something entirely new.
For ease of stalking: tuesday on AO3

If you've made it this far, I'd like to thank you for participating in Trick or Treat. This is a delightful exchange, and I am excited for and about it.
My number one hope for my gift fic or art is that you have a good time with it, so let me emphasize again that I'm just happy that there will be another fanwork for one of these fandoms. This monster of a letter was mostly an excuse to enthuse about these fandoms, and I truly hope it doesn't put you off or make you worry about whether you can make any of the prompts work. Whatever you end up writing or drawing, I'm hoping it's something you enjoy about the fandom and have fun creating.
Have a happy Trick or Treat!
