I’m currently picking out the characters I want to request for the Rare Women fic exchange, as well as thinking up the optional details/suggestions for each character. As I was making my way through the list, I realized that “an AU fic where she gets a happy ending!” is something I’d like to see for more than a few of the characters I’m requesting. Not sure if I’m drawn to ill-fated ladies, or if TPTB just really like killing off their female characters!
Anyway, all you talented fic writers out there should think about going over and checking out the exchange! Signups are open until the end of the month, and there are women nominated in over 500 fandoms, including Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Cinders, Fringe, Lost, Elementary, ASOIAF, and plenty of others.
(I also just have to highlight that the nominated characters for Mass Effect include Nyreen Kandros, Solana Vakarian, and Urdnot Bakara. LADY ALIENS FTW.)
