Hello, I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] kadma and I adore rarepairs, so this exchange is very exciting! I love love love femslash! Every fandom needs a helluva lot more. Below, you'll find a list of my general likes and do not wants, followed by a short paragraph per fandom of prompts / suggestions, all of which are optional.

General Likes:
  • PWP / smut
  • feelings / introspection
  • missing scenes / codas
  • in-character dialog makes my heart race
 
Do-Not-Wants:
  • illegal drugs (inc. marijuana)
  • animal abuse / death
  • alpha / beta / omega and bestiality
  • bodily fluids (kink and non-kink)
  • pregnancy & kid-fic
  • first person POV
  • out of character characters
  • crossovers / aus
 
REQUESTS
 
Faking It (2014)
  • Lauren Cooper / Zita Cruz
  • Karma Ashcroft / Zita Cruz
Recently finished catching up with Faking It and I am smitten by Zita Cruz. She's a minor character, sure, but that's what rarepairs are for, right? Lauren and Zita seem so compatible to me: anything goes with these two. Banter. First kiss. Lingerie shopping. Lauren developing feelings for Zita post-canon, despite dating Liam Booker. Zita attending a class taught by Lauren on how to create a successful brand. It's all good. I also loved the fact Zita kissed Karma to see what the fuss was about, so if Zita catches Feelings for Karma, I see lots of pining and angst waiting to happen.
 
WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment)
  • Bayley / Asuka
  • Alicia Fox / Eva Marie
  • Alexa Bliss / Carmella
Bayley and Asuka have so much chemistry, in and out of the ring. I'd love to see something tooth-rottingly sweet between them. Alicia and Eva is a ship I discovered by writing them and their "opposites balance each other out" vibe is what I love the most. I'd love to see how a long-term arrangement plays out between them: who invites whom over to their place first, who cooks something the other is allergic to and has to spend the night at the hospital with them, who likes red wine and who likes white? Alexa and Carmella are so fiesty individually, so I'd love to see how they function as a pairing. Are scathing remarks how they show affection? Is Carmella resentful of Alexa's success? How does Alexa learn she actually cares about someone other than herself -- and what is her reaction to that person being Carmella? Or, you know, smut and good sex for all these ladies is great too.

Stardew Valley
  • Abigail / Haley
  • Maru / Penny
For these ships, I'd love to see some trope-y goodness. Abigail pining for Haley from afar and Haley being unaware of her existence. Penny tutoring Maru for her college entrance exams and noticing the spark between them. Haley feeling left out of the other young peoples' groups and immersing herself in photography until she takes a snap of Abigail without her knowledge and realises how beautiful she is. Honestly, the cheesier the better. I'd love to see the creative ways you interpret these ships.
 
Hopefully, these prompts gave you an idea of what sort of stuff I like! I'm super stoked to see what you come up with for my assignment. <3

... oh GAWD

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My fics are here.


Also, I note with some amusement that the only fic mentioned in this post that I haven't actually managed to finish is The Fall of Strelsau. Though it's now sitting at 6,833 words, and yes, includes a by-election.

so, Legendary Defender S3 ...

The third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender is airing on 04 August.

This means I have just over a month to decide if I'm going to watch it, which is rather a more fraught question than you might think because over the last many months I have developed quite a pile of issues surrounding LD in general and it's maddening and frustrating. And yet, I don't know if I should give up outright ...

this is going to get long ... )

Tomorrow I'm posting nine drabbles, and because they're all for [community profile] tic_tac_woe they all need to be separate posts. AO3's not an option because they're all more Godfire.

[personal profile] withinadream
 Thank you for writing/drawing for me! I've requested art and fic for all fandoms/ships, and I've tried to leave art-suitable prompts for all of them as well--but I'm not an artist, so feel free to leave an anon comment or contact me through the mods if you want more details.
 
All of the prompts are just suggestions! I'll be happy with any gift focusing on any of my requested ships. And feel free to put in any background ships you like; I've got no NOTPs in my requested fandoms.
 
As far as rating and subject matter go, I’m good with anything from the fluffiest hand-holding to the most dirtybadwrong noncon, and anything in between. Any level of violence or gore is also okay. I love fluff, I love angst, I love porn, and I will most likely love whatever you create for me! For the ships where one of the members dies in canon, I'm good with everyone-lives AUs, sad character death-centric gifts, gifts set before the death, or anything else you can think of.
 
My only DNW is pregnancy/mpreg/childbirth. I'm fine with mentions, but I'd prefer no detailed descriptions of pregnancies in fic or visual depiction of pregnant people in art.
 
I have a tag of previous letters if you want to see what I've requested in past exchanges. 
 
Note: I love all my requests equally, so please don't take length of prompts as indication of which ones I prefer! It's 100% an indication of which ones I had earlier prompts I could copy/paste and/or which ones belong to canons I watched/read/listened to recently, and 0% an indication of which ones I want more/less.
 
General likes include: kidfic/Accidental Baby Acquisition, supernatural AUs or plots (especially ghosts and/or fairies), 5+1 fics, sexuality angst/internalized homophobia (especially in historical fandoms), the Comes Back Wrong approach to resurrection fic, hurt/comfort (especially recovery fic for canonical trauma), characters dressing up fancy or going undercover in ways that require them to wear clothes they normally wouldn't, truth-serum or truth-spell-induced confessions of emotions
 
Porn-type likes include: pretty much anything under the BDSM umbrella, crossdressing/guys in dresses or fancy lingerie/ladies in trousers or suits, sex pollen, characters accidentally stumbling into kinks they like (especially in historical fandoms), sex toys (especially vaguely historically accurate or magic sex toys where canon allows), rough sex, gunplay, sexy uses for canon magic or superpowers

 
Les Misérables

Grantaire/Marius Pontmercy - The first production of Les Mis I saw had Grantaire pull Marius onto his lap and kiss him during "Red and Black", and I've been in love with the ship ever since.  I’m fond of Grantaire introducing Marius to Paris and politics, and being much worse of an influence than Courfeyrac. Grantaire “corrupting” Marius is my ideal dynamic—but it doesn’t have to be sexual corruption (although it definitely can be). Nights out on the town, massive quantities of booze, unsavory characters, boxing lessons, makeout sessions…it’s all good!

Cosette Fauchelevent/Grantaire/Marius Pontmercy - I may be sailing this ship all by myself. But hear me out—you have Cosette and Marius, surprisingly fluffy and innocent given their pasts, and then you throw in cynical, sarcastic Grantaire. I love the idea of Grantaire “corrupting” them both—either in a sexual sort of way, or just making them forget about propriety for a while. Picture the Pontmercys taking Grantaire to dinner with Gillenormand, and the absolute disaster that would result. 

Or picture Marius and/or Cosette at a meeting of Les Amis, and Grantaire finding ways to distract them that infuriate everyone. Imagine Grantaire goading Marius on some philosophical topic or other until finally Marius responds, and Grantaire is thrilled that Pontmercy has grown a spine. Or imagine Grantaire deciding to try out his oratory on Cosette, and finding that she’s a keen and well-read conversationalist. 
 
In addition to the prompts above, you could show me how they end up together, if any of them feels guilty about their relationship setup (and how they overcome said guilt), how Grantaire fits into the Pontmercys’ marriage, and/or Grantaire interacting with future Pontmercy children.

Cosette Fauchelevent/Marius Pontmercy/Éponine Thénardier - I like this ship as either very fluffy or very angsty. (Or both, if you want to combine them!) Fluff-wise, if you want to create an AU where Éponine survives the barricades, or do some domestic scenes with the three of them (and perhaps a kid or kids?), that would be lovely!
 
Angst-wise, I’d really like to see an exploration of how they end up getting together and working through all of their baggage. Cosette and Éponine both have a lot of shit to work through from their childhoods, and Marius is not quite sure what’s going on and also feeling anxious about the relationship (because what doesn’t Marius feel anxious about?), and I’d love to see the three of them brought to an emotional resolution.

Grantaire/Joly/Bossuet Laigle/Musichetta - Best-friends-turned-lovers is a great dynamic, and please picture the chaos these four could create. It would be marvelous. I tend to think of this as established J/B/M adding Grantaire, but I could also see established J/B introducing their new mistress to their friend-with-benefits Grantaire. I’d love to see something about them getting together, or domesticity/a date night.
 
More specific prompts: maybe they get wildly drunk and the next morning have to reconstruct their doings the previous night, a la The Hangover? Maybe Musichetta decides to put all of her boyfriends in dresses? 

The Queen's Thief 

Heiro/Other Female Character - I love what we've seen of Heiro in the books, and I love the idea of Heiro femslash. I'd love to see more of her family's dynamics, love affairs that involve sneaking around the court/the palace, and/or Gen playing wingman

Attolia/Eugenides - I have loved these two since I first read the books in middle school: the balance of personal and political in their relationship, the way they're both master chess players with politics and their court, how much they care for each other despite their rocky beginning. I'd love a gift falling anywhere on the spectrum from personal to political; I love the dynamic they have together, but I also love seeing them manipulate scores of people to benefit their country. I'd also love something playing on Gen's ability to sneak around the palace unnoticed. (A note: I'd be into a gift focusing on miscarriage/grief, given the events of Thick as Thieves, but I'd prefer it to be light on the physical details of the pregnancy.)

Costis/Kamet - The culture clash between these two, Kamet adapting to life as a freedman, the sharing of myths and legends, Costis's mediocre Medean...there's nothing I don't love about these two and I desperately want more shippy content for them in my life. I'd love to see Kamet telling Costis more legends, how a romantic relationship would develop in parallel to the events in TaT, or what the two of them get up to post-Thick As Thieves (do they end up staying where they're sent, or do they get dragged back into politics?) And a porn prompt I've had stuck in my head since I read the book--Costis really wants to blow Kamet, and Kamet is absolutely scandalized, as that is not something a man like him should do to a slave. Art-wise, I'd love to see both of them reading together, or Costis interrupting Kamet's reading.


Raven Cycle

Blue Sargent/Gwenllian - I think I might be the only person sailing this ship, but I just love the idea of Blue having a bisexual awakening because of Gwenllian, and Gwenllian finding this both amusing and sexy.  A few prompts follow: Blue introducing Gwenllian to modern society and technology. The women of 300 Fox Way cornering Gwenllian to give her a stern talking-to about hurting Blue, either individually or all together. 

Henry Cheng/Richard Gansey III/Blue Sargent - I'd love to see the post-canon adventures of these three, and/or a gift showing how they ended up together romantically. How does the rest of the world compare to all of the crazy happenings in Henrietta? Who instigated bringing Henry into the relationship? Do they stumble across any more enchanted forests or long-dead kings?

Noah Czerny/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue Sargent - Cuddle parties! Group naps! Everyone taking care of each other. Group makeouts and/or orgies if you're into that. Maybe something exploring how they figured out the relationship/set boundaries? Or Blue breaking out the makeup and giving everyone makeovers. (Just...think about Blue's taste in clothes and then transfer it to makeup. I feel like the results would be amazing.)
 
I love the magical elements of the books, and I’d love a gift that plays with Cabeswater and/or Ronan’s dreaming. (If you’re planning on gifting me smut, I’d especially love porn featuring those elements.)

Henry Cheng/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue SargentNoah Czerny/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue Sargent/Henry Cheng - I'd love this (massive) ship with or without Noah, depending on if you feel like ignoring/working around his "death" or not. All of the above with Henry added still applies. I’m also really interested in how Henry fits into the established dynamics of Blue/Gansey and/or the 
whole gang. I’m totally in the camp of reading Henry as flirting with Gansey in TRK, which means this kid has some seriously weird ideas of how to seduce people. First-time fic playing on that, maybe? I also love the idea of someone jokingly proposing an initiation gangbang when Henry ends up dating all of them, and Henry being really into it and insisting they follow through.

Noah Czerny/Barrington Whelk - I'm very attached to the headcanon that Noah and Whelk were dating before Noah's murder. Whelk being an incredibly obnoxious boyfriend, but Noah putting up with it because it's not like there's a plethora of queer boys at Aglionby. Whelk not reciprocating during sex. Whelk being a dick, basically. And/or some post-death angst as Noah deals with the fact that his boyfriend murdered him. (Or the others reacting to Noah gradually revealing his and Whelk's relationship?)


The Magnificent Seven

Joshua Faraday/Vasquez - I loved the progression from rivalry and wariness to caring about each other that these two had in the movie, and I want all the fanworks for them, falling at any point along the development of their relationship. I've got a soft spot for fic/art showing the recovery process after an AU where Faraday survives the battle at Rose Creek, although I'd definitely be down for Vasquez mourning Faraday's death as well

Sam Chisolm/Joshua Faraday - I love the contrast of Faraday's attitude to Chisolm's, and if you're into porn, I'd love some daddy kink and/or Chisolm calling Faraday 'son'

The Bright Sessions

Mark Bryant/Damien - I love this ship anywhere from fully consensual to creepy mind-control noncon (with either party doing the nonconning/mind-controlling). I've really enjoyed Mark's angst and confusion about not being able to separate out what Damien made him feel from what Mark actually feels in the latest episodes, and I'd love a gift playing with that. I'd also love something set during the post-coma roadtrip, maybe with Mark reacting to all the things he's missed while imprisoned/in a coma, or something exploring the mind control (when did he figure out Damien was lying to him? How does he try to work around the mind control?)

Joan Bright/Ellie Wadsworth - Everything about their relationship is like, my f/f catnip. I'd love a pre-canon gift focused on Joan hero-worshipping and trying to impress Ellie, or an in-canon gift where they're in a hatemance and/or hate-fucking. I'd love to see them doing science together, or Joan's reaction when she realizes her girlfriend has kidnapped and imprisoned her brother.

DC Cinematic Universe

Diana/Etta Candy - I loved this ship the minute Etta and Diana first spoke, and I'm eternally sad that there's not more content for them. I'd love to see Etta introducing Diana to the modern world: shopping for clothes, trying ice cream and other modern delicacies, holding babies (maybe Etta is an aunt?) or whatever else you can think of. It could also be fun to have Diana tell Etta about Themyscira, or teaching her languages or how to fight. I'd also love a gift touching on the loss of Steve, and/or the aftermath of the war. I'm also really into the idea that Diana finds Etta incredibly gorgeous, because she looks so different from the Amazons and Diana has never seen a woman like her (if you want to include this in porn featuring body worship, I'm 100% in).

Diana/Isabel Maru | Doctor Poison - I'm into this ship as either Maru->Diana noncon, or an enemies-to-lovers/redemption arc story. As noncon: I'm really into the idea of Dr. Maru finding Diana's abilities just fascinating, and running all manner of nefarious experiments on her. As enemies-to-lovers: I love the idea of Maru falling for Diana when Diana spares her life, and ends up reforming (at least somewhat) to impress Diana. Especially if she ends up following Diana around conspicuously doing Good Deeds/helping her save the world. (Feel free to take that as seriously or as cracky as you want.)
