Hello there! I'm Kiraly, both on here and on AO3. I decided to sign up for this exchange at the last minute, so hopefully this letter will have enough details! I've never actually made any fanwork for the Books of the Raksura, but I've loved them for years, so this seemed like a good opportunity to branch out a little.

In general, I'm very easy to please, so I'm sure I'll love whatever you create for me! Everything in this letter is more of a guideline than a rule, apart from the "Dislikes" section. If you want to include characters that aren't listed in a particular request, that's totally fine - as long as the requested characters get the spotlight, the more the merrier! And if you have your own idea for a story with the requested characters, feel free to run with it. :)

General Likes:  

Cute, fluffy stuff! It probably isn’t possible to write something too sweet, so feel free to pour the sugar on. For gen fics, I love to see characters building friendships, working together, going on adventures, getting into (and out of) trouble. Anything with characters out in nature is pretty great too. For shippy fics, I have a huge weakness for cuddling, (mild) hurt/comfort, and, uh...characters getting soaked and having to snuggle to warm up, haha. (I copied and pasted this from my usual exchange letters, but I think it can still apply to Raksura, too.)  

I also love the worldbuilding in this series, and all the little details about the Mountain Trees and the decorative carvings and clothes, so feel free to go into that.

For art, I really enjoy a wide variety of styles, from sketches to watercolors to digital pieces. I love bright, saturated colors if you decide to work in color, but I also love greyscale and black and white. I think most of my fic prompts will work for art too, but if you don’t see anything you like, feel free to do your own thing. :)
General Dislikes:

Character death or maiming. Violence beyond what is canon-typical. Abusive relationships. Sexual violence of any kind. Explicit sex (allusions to sex or situations that get kind of steamy are okay, and I know the Raksura are fairly casual about the whole thing. Just...keep it teen rated or lower, please). And I doubt it has to be said, since it would be kind of difficult to separate the Raksura from their setting, AUs, please. 
Specific Requests:

Moon, Jade: Okay, so I know they're the most focused-on pair in the books, but I LOVE them and would be happy to get any fanwork involving them. Maybe they get called away on a new adventure, or have to deal with visitors from another court? Or little domestic moments would be nice, just the two of them spending time with each other and with their clutch.  

Solace, Sapphire, Cloud, Rain, Fern: TINY LITTLE RAKSURA!!! I would love to read a story about them, or see some art with them. What kind of adventures do they get up to when they start to get older? Are they well-behaved, or do they cause trouble? I like to think that since they're Moon and Jade's offspring, they probably have their fair share of spunk. If you wanted to go for a future-type fic, something about any of them as adults considering going off to different courts would be interesting, too.  

Frost, Thorn, Bitter, Rain, Cloud etc: I could only request five characters, but I would love to see how the Sky Copper clutch get along with any of Moon and Jade's clutch, not just the ones listed here. Growing up alongside each other there are bound to be little squabbles, or friendships formed, or helping each other learn new things, and I am here for anything like that. I'm especially amused by the way Frost is so insistent on there being consorts for her and queens for Thorn and Bitter, so a story about them getting a little older and having their childhood friendships suddenly turn into matchmaking (I can totally picture Frost trying to boss the others around) could be fun, if you decide to go that route.

Moon, Chime: I adore Chime, he's one of my favorite characters and his relationship with Moon brings me so much joy. It'd be fun to see the two of them exchanging knowledge - Chime helping Moon learn the little bits of Raksuran culture he doesn't know, or picking Moon's brain about the groundling societies he's encountered. And I love seeing Moon encourage Chime to be assertive and confident in his role as a warrior (and, in the later books, dealing with his weird not-quite-mentor-powers). I'd also be perfectly okay with something fluffy and sweet (five times Chime cuddled Moon, and one time Moon initiated the cuddles?)  

Jade, Balm: I love the way these two work together: it's clear that Jade trusts Balm completely, and Balm would do anything for her. I'd be fine with either a pre-canon story of the two of them before Moon arrived, or something set during or post-canon. Long, serious talks, casual affection (It seems like Jade is kind of selective about who she gets close to, so I imagine a lot of her physical affection would come from someone close to her, like Balm) and working together to keep the court running smoothly. Or, alternatively, Balm convincing Jade to take a break once in a while and just relaxing together.

Anyway, I think that's all I have - if anything is unclear, feel free to ask! I have anonymous comments open here, or you can send me an anonymous message on Tumblr - I'm @worldsentwined over there. (Like I said, I don't really have any Raksura stuff on there, but I do like chatting with people about books I love, so feel free to talk to me!)
