Dear Author Letter (Rare Male Slash Exchange 2017)  
(A letter for Rare Male Slash Exchange 2017)

Dear author,

Thank you so much for doing this! I’m very glad we got paired up :)

Here is a list of my likes and dislikes to give you an idea of what I like to read, and what I avoid:

LIKES: Fluff, hurt/comfort (with focus on comfort), humour, adventures, banter, fics about asexuality/asexual characters, AUs, happy endings, fix-it fics, first times, get together, fake marriages/relationships becoming real, misunderstandings, curtain!fics, 5 + 1 Things

DISLIKES: Rape/non-con, dub-con, genderbend, slave!fic, A/B/O, mpreg (kid fics in general aren't really my thing), demonising female characters, character/ship bashing, underage, abusive relationships presented as romantic, infidelity, harming/death of animals (including hunting etc.), heavy angst without happy ending, graphic torture, unrequited love, de-aging, ageplay, historical AUs, major character death/death!fic, break up!fic, amnesia!fic, pain-play, humiliation, heavy BDSM, crossdressing

As for the requested fandoms, I came up with 3 prompts for each requested pairing, just in case you needed some inspiration, but feel free to come up with your own ideas, too, of course :)
