Dear Hockey Holiday Exchange Author,

Thank you so much for singing up for one of my pairings! I'm so excited to see what you write, and I'm certain I will love whatever you come up with.

First, some general information about my likes and dislikes. I like slow build, banter. I like characters who like each other. Teasing, humour, fluff, smut. I like slice of life fic, character studies, bed sharing, trapped in confined spaces--basically, any romantic cliche you can come up with. I love tropes and trope subversion. Marriage of convenience, pining, soulmates, D/s. I love phone sex and sexting.

As for dislikes, there's not a lot I outright don't like. Please don't make me super sad on Christmas. I'm okay with some angst, but happy endings, please! I don't like infidelity, watersports, or character death. I'm pretty much up for anything else! I love all the characters I've requested, and the ones I didn't, so please don't bash them.

I'm happy with AU or canon fic for all pairings. All the pining for Mitch/Dylan and Alex/Brendan is amazing. I love any an all AUs. I love them trying to figure out their relationship in the NHL (long distance for Mitch and Dylan), I love them being dumb about their feelings and figuring out how they feel about each other. I'm desperate for Max/Duke fic. DO THEY KNOW THEY'RE IN LOVE? I'm concerned they don't know they are in love. I know I said I liked pining but THESE TWO ARE REALLY SOFT, PLEASE BE GENTLE.

As I said above, you really can't go wrong with tropes. I love me a good tropey fic. I am also here for trope inversion, so anything you want to take and spin around on its head, I am also 100% here for that. I am here for always a girl fic, if that's your thing. I am a fan of soulmates as I said above (it's a particular fav), but if you just want to write a good old fashion canon fic, I am here for dumb hockey boys being dumb hockey boys in love.

Pairing specific thoughts:

Mitch Marner/Dylan Strome

- future fic, making it work in the NHL. I also imagine them being in love for years and never really acting on it because what are they supposed to do being so far away? So it's just kinda understood that they love each other but nothing can happen with it... until it does
- established relationship, being super gross and solid and domestic
- tiny magical witch, Mitch Marner

Max Domi/Anthony Duclair

- arranged marriage (!!!) or regency au
- magic au or any kind of urban fantasy
- established relationship, really soft domestic fic

Alex Galchenyuk/Brendan Gallagher

- I have a yearning for a king and lionheart AU for these two. Anything with royalty/knights, etc. Is my jam.
- CUTTING EDGE AU. Washed up hockey star Brendan Gallagher and prim and proper figure skater Alex Galchenyuk
- sexting the wrong person and leading to accidental phone sex helLO

If none of these prompts inspire you, please feel free to stretch your wings in whatever manner you see fit. Telepathically bonded! Rivals to lovers! Any kind of canon fic you like! I can't wait to see what you you come up with!!! ANYWAY you can tell I am excited, and waiting for fic with bated breath. Thank you once again for agreeing to write for me!!

Looking forward to reveals,

Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for singing up for one of my fandoms! I'm so excited to see what you write.

First, some general information about my likes and dislikes. I picked three fandoms I'm really excited about this year, so I know I'll be thrilled to get any fic you write with these characters. I like slow build, banter. I like characters who like each other. Teasing, humour, fluff, smut. I like slice of life fic, character studies, bed sharing, trapped in confined spaces--basically, any romantic cliche you can come up with. While I'm normally a big AU fan, for the purpose of these fandoms, I'd really rather prefer in universe fic.

As for dislikes, there's not a lot I outright don't like. Please don't make me super sad on Christmas. I'm okay with some angst, but happy endings, please! I love all the characters I've requested, and the ones I didn't, so please don't bash them.

Brooklyn (2015), Eilis Lacey, Tony Fiorello

Post movie fic is my dream. I just want all the domestic fic about them moving to Long Island together and making it work.


I saw this film in theatres with my mom, and I kinda knew it was going to fuck me up, but boy did it fuck me up. I immediately fell for Eilis and Tony, Tony was just so sweet and kind and eager, and he liked Eilis so much. I'd like to see more of them building a life together, so any kind of domestic fic with them figuring things out and making it work would be amazing. If you wanted to explore Eilis's emotions towards Tony more I would be interested in that. She's so much more muted with her feelings and expressions, it would be great to see if and how she finds herself catching up to Tony's regard, if she ever becomes comfortable expressing herself in the exuberant way, or if she stays reserved. Does Tony get that, or does it bother him?

Really, anything you wanted to write about regarding their relationship would be so wonderful and loved. I'm familiar with both the book and the movie so pulling from either one is fine too.

Cainsville - Kelley Armstrong, Olivia Taylor-Jones, Ricky Gallagher, Gabriel Walsh

POLY FIC. Please, poly fic. Either romantic or platonic. Romantic Olivia/Gabriel, or endgame romantic poly.


The closer this series draws to an end, the more I want a romantic poly endgame for these three. The books are just set up perfectly for it, and I need it desperately. Any aspect of the triad that you wanted to explore would be wonderful. Romance wise I prefer poly (whether a true triad or poly-v), or Gabriel/Olivia. If you wanted to explore Gabriel and Ricky's relationship I would love that as well. An individual character study would also be something I would enjoy, or even a case-type fic with the three of them working together. I just love these three, and they love each other in so many different and fascinating ways. Anything you want to do with that or explore I guarantee I will love.

Society of Gentlemen - KJ Charles, Julius Norreys, Harry Vane, Francis Webster, Gabriel Ashleigh

This is really an either/or prompt - Harry/Julius or Gabriel/Francis. If you wanted to work both couples into one fic that would be amazing, but I would be just as happy with a fic focusing on one pairing.


I just devoured these books so quickly, I loved them so much. As I said in my signup I'd be thrilled with a fic that focused on either Harry/Julius or Gabriel/Francis, don't feel as though you have to incorporate both by any means (of course, if you want to...)

For Harry/Julius, I'd really love to see something with the two of them as a more established/settled couple. Obviously, their relationship is really fraught with outside drama at the beginning, so seeing them together with less high stakes would be great. How do they settle into their relationship? What comes next for them? I really liked their dynamic, the difference between the way they were in company vs in private. Julius especially really fascinated me as this kind of intense dandy that shouldn't be fucked with (the moment in Silas and Dom's book where he's like "I won't let anyone hurt Harry" really stood out to me). How do they navigate society and their relationship together?

Obviously Francis and Gabriel's novella was extremely hot, but it was so short it left me wanting so much more! Their shared history makes it seem impossible that they'd be able to come together but they're both so drawn to each other and I'm so interested in just seeing really ANY glimpse of what their relationship is like. Francis is so serious and Gabriel is seemingly so lighthearted, but they fit together and I love that.

So that's that! Like I said, I'm really thrilled about all of these fandoms, and I look forward to reading whatever you may come up with! Thank you in advance for writing my story, I am sure I'm going to love it!

Looking forward to reading,

Dear Poly Author!

Thank you so much for signing up to write one of these pairigs! I'm really excited about getting any fic for them, so I'm sure I will absolutely love whatever you come up with!!

Generally speaking I'm good with true poly, or poly-v for each of these groups. AU or canon is also fine. I tend to like canon divergence AUs a lot. What if they were supernatural creatures who played in the NHL! What if soulbonds! etc. etc. I love pining, and miscommunication, bikering, D/s, soulbonds (I know I said this already but it's a favourite), arranged marriage or marriage of convienence, etc. etc.

I like when one character (or characters) are seemingly less invested until ~dramatic reveals, I have a soft spot for pining and characters being insecure--and then reassured! Angst is okay, but please give me a happy ending. Don't kill anyone, and don't give me watersports, and I'm probably gonna be super pumped.

My individual requests are below, please feel free to take the prompts as guidelines, or to disregard them entirely! Like I said above, I'm going to be thrilled with whatever fic you end up writing me!

Alex Galchenyuk/Brendan Gallagher/Nail Yakupov
Alex and Nail have a platonic soulbond that everyone assumes is romantic. Gally knows he never has a chance with Brendan because how do you compete with someone's soulmate? You don't, that's how! Miscommunication and pining ahoy. Or maybe Alex and Nail's bond IS romantic! Maybe it becomes romantic!

I think anything with Gally and Nail loving Alex and trying to make a relationship work, either as true poly or a poly-v would be super super enjoyable. Gally and Nail getting to know each other through Alex and developping their own relationship! Navigating long distance with one of them apart and the other two together! Being dumb boys in love! Any and all are great!

Aaron Ekblad/Megan Mitchell/Willie Mitchell
I am desperate for fic for these three. I love them so much and there is so little of it. Aaron Ekblad: nerotic and stressed out lost baby is kind of my jam. I'd love anything exploring their relationship now that Aaron has moved out of the house, and how that affects their relationship. Navigating Aaron's second year in the NHL.

Maybe Willie and Meg never moved on their feelings while he was living with them because that would be INAPPROPRIATE! but he's out on his own now and they miss him like super crazy. Or future fic maybe after Willie is retired and figuring out their relationship. How does Aaron navigate coming into a relationship with SO MUCH history? How can he ever live up to that?

If you're going to go poly-v for this one I'd prefer Willie/Aaron and Willie/Meg, please.

Angela Price/Carey Price/P. K. Subban
PK moves in at the start of the season to help Carey and Angela with their new baby... and then just never leaves. He's been putting on a good show this offseason to prove to Carey and Angela how good he is with kids!

If kidfic isn't your thing, really anything with these three would be super. Angela and Carey being equally charmed and enamoured with PK and trying to woo him to be their third! Carey developping feelings for PK, but not knowing how to act on them without hurting Angela, and the two of them working through it and coming up with a plan to make it work (now they only have to convince PK). PK going to visit Carey in BC over the summer and just having ALL HIS FEELINGS come out to the surface.

Again, really anything you want to write and are excited to write about is going to be something I love to read. Thank you so much in advance, I can't wait!

Dear Hockey Exchange Writer,

First of all, thank you for signing up to write one of these pairings. I'm already so excited to see what you'll come up with, and I'm sure I will love whatever it is!

From my signup:

Likes:

- Tropes, tropes, tropes
- bed sharing
- secret/pretend dating
- marriage of convenience
- banter
- pining
- soulmates

I'm happy with AU or canon fic for all pairings, although if I had a preference I think I'd prefer canon for Aaron/Willie. Also for them, I'm fine if you want to bring Megan into it and do some poly! I'm also fine if you don't, but if that's the case, I'd prefer she not be around at all. Please no infidelity.

For the Gallys and Dylan/Mitch I'll be thrilled with honestly anything. I have a lot of feelings about Mitch and Brendan, tiny hockey players just trying to make it in the world. All the pining for these two relationships is amazing. I love any an all AUs. I love them trying to figure out their relationship in the NHL (long distance for Mitch and Dylan), I love them being dumb about their feelings and figuring out how they feel about each other. Really, truly, anything will be amazing and great.

Dislikes:
- not much. Like, no watersports, please. Infidelity, and character death are also a no go. Please don't give me a sad ending. Otherwise I'm sure I will love anything.


As I said above, you really can't go wrong with tropes. I love me a good tropey fic. I am also here for trope inversion, so anything you want to take and spin around on its head, I am also 100% here for that. I am here for always a girl fic, if that's your thing. I am a fan of A/B/O, soulmates as I said above (it's a particular fav), but if you just want to write a good old fashion canon fic, I am here for dumb hockey boys being dumb hockey boys.

Pairing specific thoughts:

Alex Galchenyuk/Brendan Gallagher
My two dummies. I love everything about them. I have a soft spot for insecure Brendan Gallagher, so a character study exploring that would hit my id delightfully.

- I have a yearning for a king and lionheart AU for these two. Anything with royalty/knights, etc. Is my jam.
- ALL STAR VACATION FIC. Banging will on vacation and then having to face the reality of hooking up when back in Montreal
- CUTTING EDGE AU. Washed up hockey star Brendan Gallagher and prim and proper figure skater Alex Galchenyuk
- THIS NONSENSE - honestly anything you want to do with that, but sexting the wrong person and leading to accidental phone sex helLO

Mitch Marner/Dylan Strome
My other two dummies (I have so many dummies and I love them all equally).

- future fic, making it work in the NHL. I also imagine them being in love for years and never really acting on it because what are they supposed to do being so far away? So it's just kinda understood that they love each other but nothing can happen with it... until it does.
- telepathically bonded...IN SPACE!
- Regency AU. That Pride and Prejudice feeling
- any and all rivals to lovers

Willie Mitchell/Aaron Ekblad
THERE IS SO LITTLE FIC ABOUT THESE TWO I WILL LITERALLY LOVE ANYTHING. Aaron Ekblad is such a beautiful dummy (you're sensing a theme right about now) and I love him so much. I am also more than happy if you want to include Megan. I am all about the polyamory for these guys. I am also fine if you don't want to include her, so no pressure! But as I said above, please no infidelity so just write her out if that's the case.

I have less specific prompts for this pairing because there's so little fic I'm so desperate for anything. I'd love anything exploring their relationship now that Aaron has moved out of the house, and how that affects their relationship. Or future fic maybe after Willie is retired and figuring out their relationship.

Any of the above prompts for the other two pairings can also be applied to Ekblad/Mitchell if you want. TELEPATHY IN SPACE!!! Regency AU. Ooooh, arranged marriage fic!!! Please. Anything.

ANYWAY you can tell I am excited, and waiting for fic with bated breath. Thank you once again for agreeing to write for me!!

Looking forward to reveals,

torigates
