Dear Crossovering Writer letters!

Sign-ups will be opening in less than twelve hours (the completed tag set is posted here, so check that out), so it's also time to link your Dear Crossovering Writer Letters (if you choose to do so).

These letters are 100% optional, but highly encouraged (particularly due to the nature of this exchange). If you've never participated in an exchange like this before, a Dear Writer Letter is a post at your DW/LJ/Tumblr/Blog, etc. detailing your requests and giving your assigned writer ideas for possible stories they can write, as well as any potential likes, dislikes and triggers you may have. You can link them here as well as in your sign-up form. How you format or write them is entirely up to you.

If you have any triggers (things that may cause you harm if you read about them), we highly recommend that you make that clear in your letter as well as in the optional details on your sign-up. Not every writer clicks through to letters, and this is the best way to cover your bases so that your author will not unintentionally write your triggers.

For more info and great examples of what we mean check out the following links: The Yuletide FAQ or last year's Crossovering letters post.

Keep in mind that, a letter to your writer is COMPLETELY 100% OPTIONAL, which also means that writers are in no way required to follow the optional details. The only requirement is that they use the fandoms you requested and were matched on. Essentially: Optional details are optional.

Another added benefit of writing letter is you might get extra fics if someone not assigned as your writer finds your requests inspiring. We will also be making the sign-ups summary public as soon as sign-ups are closed, so any additional details you put in your sign-up will be available for public viewing and treat writers.

If you are posting a link to your letter here, we ask that you copy/paste the following when you comment:
