And the outline for the Games Night! And other such things!) There are still a lot of prompts left floating, by the way, so if you want to drop any ideas feel free!

7. AH MAN. I think I accidentally rambled about this above, so feel free to pick another one because apparently my reading comprehension is low before tea, but THIS TROPE. I love this trope. I love fake marriages turning into real relationships, and characters slowly admitting their feelings, and being forced to grow closer, and ALL THE GOOD STUFF.

I really need to write it someday. I have plenty of pairings it'd work for, I just need to work out a way to do it justice.

21. I generally quite like Hurt/Comfort! The general themes of it tend to turn up in my fic quite a lot, and I've done HC_Bingo a few times. The one thing I will say, though, is that the hurt part has to mean something. I don't much like horrible pain just for the sake of horrible pain, too much of that and I tend to go find something happier. In the same vein, I also want it to have realistic consequences - if a character has just been set on fire they seen.'to going to gather around a fireplace with their friends and laugh merrily, it doesn't really WORK like that.

So, yeah - as with most things, I like it when done well. ^^

Yeah! I really like the combination of awkward pretend feelings and the real feelings they have as they get closer.
