Dear Chocolatier '17

    (Quiet WTF moment how is it 2017 already.)

    Hello and welcome, dearest creator!

    So, let's pretend I've made a confectionery pun and move on. (Believe me, humour is not my strong suit. Besides, if you get me started on chocolates, we'll be here all day.)

    I am so, so happy we've matched and overjoyed that you're making art or fic for me! (Although I wouldn't mind if you mail me chocolates IRL, just so you know. I wouldn't mind at all.)

    My prompts are slightly more fic-geared than art-geared (although most of them are hopefully general enough to apply to both), because, in art, I like a lot of the same thing for multiple relationships; I've included a separate section for general art prompts at the beginning of the letter. (EDIT: now added! I'm sorry, that was such a fail :/) And I know that some of my prompts are longer than others, but that's mostly because for some prompts, I know exactly what I want to say, but for others, I ramble a lot—it's a problem with wording! I would love fic and art for any of the relationships I've requested equally. Also, prompts for relationship are by no means the only things I'd like to see! You can follow them or not as you wish; hopefully, I've given enough general prompts, too.

    If you want to know more about me , I’m

    [archiveofourown.org profile] The_Wavesinger, [tumblr.com profile] the-wavesinger and The Wavesinger (Silmarillion Writers’ Guild) on my fannish haunts. You can also find me here on DW, and as [livejournal.com profile] the_wavesinger on LJ, but I don’t frequent those places often. If you want more on my fic preferences (however unlikely that is, after this very long letter!), my fic rec tag on Tumblr and my AO3 bookmarks may be of some use, and for art, my art and fan art tags on Tumblr may be of some use. You may also want to poke through my previous exchange letters, for both fic and art. And, of course, you can comment anonymously on this post or leave an anonymous ask on my Tumblr if you want to know more.

     

    DNWs:

    • Gore/guro/vore.
    • Torture of animals. (Human beings being tortured is more than fine!)
    • Necrophilia, bestiality.
    • Graphic descriptions of nausea/vomiting for fic, and for art, no nausea/vomiting at all, please.
    • (Fic) Reader inserts.
    • Mundane AUs.
    • (Fic) A/B/O.
    • Cis men becoming pregnant.
    • Crossovers/fusions between fandoms I haven't asked for. (Crossover within any fandom in my letter or previous exchange letters, along with mythology and folklore, are more than fine!)
    • (Fic) Fics which are all fluff are very difficult for me to stomach—a limit to the cuteness would be good. (Which isn't to say I don't like fluff; I just like fluff in moderation, and with a dose of conflict!)
    • Love at first sight is not my favourite thing. It's mostly to do with the fluff limit, so if you add complications, then I'm more than fine with it!
    • (Fic) AUs with modern settings are no-no’s unless there’s a reasonable canon explanation (eg-: Tolkien, people cursed to be reborn again and again into mortal forms) and that only in Tolkien. Even then, please no high school or coffee shop AUs.
    • Please no age regression, de-ageing, or AUs in which one character is suddenly older than a previously older-than-them character (ageswap?).
    • For smut, I'd prefer not to see bloodplay, scat, watersports, infantilism and age play, and any sort of permanent marking/scarring (scarring and permanent markings outside smut is perfectly fine) unless I've prompted these things for the specific pairing.
    • F/M smut unless specifically requested. I'm sorry, it's just not my thing.
    • Parent/child incest
    • Unrequested noncon as the focus of the work. Noncon which isn't the focus of the work is fine, as is noncon as the focus when I've specifically requested it.
    • (Fic) H/C fics centering on characters with depression and/or anxiety, and/or characters who self-harm or have eating disorders are not my favourite thing. (All of these things are more than fine in art and non-H/C fic, but not as things which can be hugged/cuddled better, please.)
    • Genderswap which makes F/F or M/M canon pairings or F/F or M/M pairings I've requested F/M.

     


    General Likes:

    • Angst. Drama. Politics. Tragedy.
    • Philosophical ponderings!
    • I love canon divergence AUs, and other ‘what-if’ scenarios.
    • All the hard questions with no answers, characters trapped in unsolvable dilemmas, loss and grief and moving on.
    • Soulmates! Not necessarily soulmate AUs (although that'd be more than fine), but soulmates as in 'I knew you the moment I saw you', or 'I felt you in my soul' or any other version of that—the electric connection is something I adore. Soulmate things I love include in every version of every reality, in another life, fated to be separated again and again.
    • In-world mythology.
    • I have A Thing for sister/sister, and focusing on the sister aspects of the relationship—how they're alike and how they're different, and just how they're sisters.
    • Cultural differences and clashes that occur due to cultural differences.
    • I adore OFCs and textual ghosts, for many, many reasons.
    • I'm more than fine with most side relationships, unless stated otherwise.
    • Genderbending! I always love Rule 63'd characters.
    • Open relationships! Threesomes! Moresomes! (Non-explicit) orgies!
    • Transgender characters would be amazing, as would non-binary characters and just fucking with and/or ignoring traditional gender roles in general.
    In fic:
    • I have zero problems with fics dealing with misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, racism etc. I like realism, but not overly-depressing fics or fics centered on issues at the expense of characterization. (I define 'overly-depressing' as continuous angst focusing on Issues and Only Issues.)
    • I like relationships that are fated to end in tragedy, but I also like a pinch of humor with my angst.
    • All the things that could've happened, but didn't.
    • Characters who and relationships which fall just short of the mark, the almost-most-not-quite. I think the closest word to this would be hamartia in its original sense?
    • Again, canon divergence AUs, and For Want Of A Nail and what-if scenarios. I'd love both longer fic and snapshots of what could have been, all the things that could've happened, but didn't.
    • Hurt, and not necessarily comfort.
    • Fucked-up families and messy friendships which really, really aren't good for the characters, but they love each other very much anyway. I don't mind either characters finding ways to move past the fucked-upness and the relationships end up flourishing, or moving past fucked-up-ness and leaving what they don't want behind, but I also don't mind a constant cycle of messing up.
    • Found families!
    • Intense friendships which play a central role in the characters' lives.
    • For longer works, plotty fics are always welcome!
    • Characters finding ways to come to terms with themselves, with their pasts, and with their loved ones and/or finding their place in the world (think Circle of Life).
    • Characters who're broken, characters who're tired, characters who're lost, characters who refuse to be found, characters who're hurt over and over again, characters who never ever win, characters who've given up. And characters who love, characters who give, characters who're selfless and kind even after everything they've been through, characters who give their all and then some more to people they love, characters who never give up, characters who keep on hoping and keep on fighting even beyond the bitter end. And characters who're a mixture of both types.
    • I like all kinds of fic, so go wild—linear narrative, flashbacks, epistolary…whatever you think of is lovely, the more daring the better. I especially adore faux-historical documents.
    • I love characters with flaws and unpleasant qualities! Awesome ladies can be awesome and flawed :).
    • Characters teasing and bantering with each other.
    • I don’t mind any type of POV (including second person!). In fact, POV switches and outside POVs on relationships would be lovely.
    • Time travel and time loops, especially timefuckery where everything is fucked up!
    • Competence porn!
    • I also adore people being messes and general failboats, because, uh, contradictions?
    In art:
    • I adore all kinds of jewellery—the more elaborate the better!
    • And elaborate hairdos! And elaborate costumes!
    • I do, however, also enjoy seeing characters in their workaday attire, doing everyday things.
    • Characters with visible height differences from each other!
    • Elaborate weapons
    • Court settings with pomp and circumstance or everyday life are both things I enjoy seeing.
    • Studies in opposites
    • Limited palettes
    • Characters of color! (Racebending is awesome, too.)
    • Non-traditional art mediums would be welcome.
    In smut:
    • I prefer sensuality, emotions, and a focus on physical sensation to insert-tab-A-into-slot-B and graphic anatomical descriptions. For smutty things, anything from playful to slightly creepy is more than fine (although there are a few things I'd prefer not to see, as outlined in the kink DNWs).
    • Bantering and laughing during sex is lovely, as is gentleness.
    • Angry sex, smut that gives off vibes of 'slightly creepy but in a way that can't be pinpointed
    • Dubcon and emotional manipulation!
    • Fuck-or-die scenarios, especially for Star Wars.
    • Kinks include, but are not limited to, bondage, body worship, D/s, and anything with power differentials. (If a kink isn't in my DNWs, it's a go!)
    In darker fic/art:
    • Dark places and enchantments which entrap people without their knowledge
    • Getting lost in creepy surroundings
    • Corruption and decay
    • Explorations of the darker side of magic (or its equivalent), especially magic that's considered 'good'.
    • Exploration of the supernatural aspects of the canons.
    • Nature being eerily alive and dangerous.
    • Child soldiers, trauma, and really ugly, messy wars.
    • Characters trapped in vicious cycles.
    • Characters who think they're 'not good enough' for their partner(s).
    • Situations where characters are blackmailed/coerced into doing things they don't want to do.
    • Fucked-up families and friendships and relationships; people codependent to the point of almost-insanity, and far beyond anything healthy.
    • Looking into messed-up characters' thought processes.
    • Terrible things being done in the name of good by characters who see themselves as good. Perversion of the 'good' side of magic to do evil things.
    • Mindfucks and powerplay.
    • Relationships where one characters is in love, but the other isn't.
    • Characters who hate themselves and lash out at the world and do fucked-up things as a result.
    • Really, really dark stories which end in the 'everyone dying' sort of tragedy.
    • AUs where everything goes wrong.
    In non-dark fic/art:
    • Bittersweetness.
    • Characters dancing and spending time outdoors.
    • Characters in situations that shouldn't be funny, but are.
    • Characters who're comfortable around each other, and who tease and laugh with each other.
    • Slice-of-life fics and, for relationships, a look at all the quirks/annoyances of cohabitation.
    • Casual situations and everyday annoyances
    • Characters playing pranks on each other.
    • Generally over-the-top things played straight.
    • Drama interspersed with humor.
    • Starlight and warm colors and pastels for art.

     

     


    Art Prompts

    General:

    • Characters doing things they love together (I know this sounds very pairing-specific, but I'd lovelovelove this for friends and/or parents and children and/or siblings, too).
    • Ceremonies and events (coronations, balls, feasts, weddings etc.)
    • Characters arguing or debating with each other.
    • Characters passionate with and about each other and about things they love
    • Characters fighting and having each other's backs!
    • Characters fighting and having each other's backs, and, for A:TLA, bending!
    • Characters facing each other across the battlefield (especially friends-turned-enemies)
    • For parents and children, older children taking care of their parents, or sharing a moment of quiet companionship with them
    • Gift-giving, both literal and metaphorical
    • Characters who look messy and/or rumpled and tired and way too fucking busy why is this my life
    Pairing-specific:
    • Characters in a private moment
    • Casually intimate gestures
    • Kneeling and hand-kissing for pairings where I specify loyalty kink
    • Forehead kissing!
    • Day-to-day activities (eating, bathing, morning rituals etc.)
    • Characters being cheesy or tender or dorky or awkward with each other (or all or some of these!).
    • For smut: smutty art is wonderful. Kinks (optional, of course), include (but aren't limited to) bondage (I particularly enjoy seeing characters straining against ropes/handcuffs etc.) both minimal and elaborate, visual power differences in D/s (one person's clothes on and the other's off, kneeling etc.), boot worship (and body worship in general). In general, if a kink isn't in my DNWs, it's a go.

     

     



    Avatar: The Last Airbender

    Art, fic

    • I love the mix of darkness and humor in A:TLA—it's one of my favourite things about it. Also how deeply fucked up it is. Give me all the fucked-up childhoods and child soldiers and dictators! Fucked-up childhoods especially are a Thing for me.
    • Bending! Bending is another wonderful thing, and I'd love explorations of the hows and whys of bending for fic. And for art, bending and the elements and all the different fighting styles Exploring the roots of bending, having fun with bending, the darker side of bending—I'd adore it all!
    • Spirits and the supernatural and all the otherwordly aspects of the A:TLA world! I especially love the spirits' inability to distinguish between different humans.
    • Worldbuilding—the past of the A:TLA world and the politics of said world are things I always love to see being explored.
    • I love the character arcs for basically all the characters, and I'd adore something set in the future, because I want to see what happens to them! Bridging the gap between A:TLA and LoK would be particularly lovely.
    • Speaking of LoK, LoK and A:TLA sometimes have wildly different interpretations of events (lion-turtles and the origin of the Avatar comes to mind), so something about that, maybe?

     

    Azula/Mai/Ty Lee, Azula/Ty Lee

    Dark ships of my heart! And by dark, I mean dark. Dub-con, powerplay, mindfucks—throw them all at me, and I'd love it! Loyalty, of course, and tests of loyalty, and tragedy and betrayal, and anger and passion and also auras, and I just want dark, dark fic and art. 

    For something more specific: a day-in-the-life, maybe? Or post-canon, meeting each other again (side 'ships are fine) and fucked-up things in that direction? Or something about their childhoods?

     

    Azula & Ursa, Zuko & Ursa

    All the angst for these two relationships, please! I feel like Ursa would feel very guilty for leaving her children behind (and especially for choosing to give up her memories of them, if you're following the comics 'verse), although there was no other alternative. Azula and Ursa, I feel, would be very fucked up and messy, on both sides of the equation but especially Azula's, even pre-canon, before Ursa leaves, and I'd love to see something dark and angsty.

    I don't think that Zuko and Ursa would have a perfect relationship if/when they find each other after Ursa left, either (not fucked-up, per se, just not...happy), and explorations of that would be wonderful.

    For either of the relationships, both post-canon and pre-canon would be lovely. (If you want to work Azula & Zuko in with either or both of the relationships, you're very welcome to!)

     

    Azula & Zuko

    I love how they're twisted mirrors of each other, and I'd love to see something on how fucked-up they are, and yet how, ultimately, they love each other (even if that love doesn't stop them from destroying each other). Either pre-, post-, or during canon would be wonderful!

    And all the fire-themed arts, please and also dragons.

     

    Kanna/Yugoda, Kanna/Yugoda/Pakku

    Pakku wasn't the only one who missed Kanna, and who loved her; Yugoda loved her too. Kanna and Yugoda, or the three of them, finding each other again, (and Kanna surprised but pleased at how much Pakku's changed if Kanna/Yugoda/Pakku), and falling in love all over again. Or maybe something about Kanna's girlhood and the aftermath of her eventual escape—bittersweet and gentle, with lots of angst.

    For art, I'd love something to do with ice or water, maybe them on a boat weaving in between ice floes?

     

    Katara & Kya & Kanna

    Three generations of Southern Water Water Tribe women! I'd love to see the three of them interacting when Katara's very young. Or maybe Kanna or Katara reminiscing after Kya's death? I'd love to see Southern Water Tribe culture, and maybe something about Katara's waterbending? For art, maybe something with ice, and/or a happy moment?

     

    Katara/Suki

    Sisters-in-arms (except with a lot more romance ;))! Katara and Suki fighting together, living together, loving together. Kick-ass women kicking ass, action, adventure! And all the bittersweet fluffiness is also lovely. (Post-canon getting together would be wonderful—it can always be after Aang's death, just before LoK, if you don't want to break Katara and Aang up, or maybe after Tenzin's born?) 

     

    Katara/Yue

    We know Katara has a special connection to the moon (and I resisted making a joke out of it! So proud of myself), and it's not difficult to extrapolate from there! Yue visiting Katara in her dreams, maybe and dreamsex? Or Katara visiting the Spirit Oasis post-canon, and communing with the moon? Either way, I'd love something about the moon and about waterbending, please!

     

    Katara & Zuko

    I find their friendship intriguing; they're so similar and yet so different, and they seem to understand each other well. I imagine they'd be close post-canon, and especially near the end of their lives when the rest of the Gaang is gone. Or during canon, maybe something bittersweet with a hint of darkness, about their mothers and what they've lost?

    For art, other than the general prompts, I'd also love to see Katara's and Zuko's bending intermeshing.

     

    Kyoshi & Yangchen, Kyoshi/Yangchen

    How do Avatars adapt to being thrust into a world of alien cultures and people, and regarded as a god among them? How do they react to this, by clinging tighter to their culture and heritage or letting it go altogether? Does Kyoshi turn to her past lives? How does she get on with Yangchen? Does she like her or is she annoyed by her? What does she think of Yangchen's advice and how Yangchen lived her life? And, in the afterlife, do they bond? Basically, I'd love culture clashes and cultural exploration, and a journey to find balance.

     

    Kyoshi/Original Female Character, Yangchen/Original Female Character

    What is it like when, in the peacetime, an Avatar falls in love? What does it feel like to be the Avatar's lover? What do other people think of this?

    Or maybe Spirit World shenanigans, and the Avatar falling in love (or just hooking up) with a spirit?

     

    Raava/Kyoshi/Yangchen

    Spirit World shenanigans! I'm sure that Raava communicates (*cough cough*) not only with Avatars present, but with Avatars past too! I'd love to see something about the role of the Avatar, and what Kyoshi's and Yangchen's views of that are, and what Raava's views are. Culture clashes, basically, and misunderstandings based on the fact that one of them is an extremely powerful spirit who used to live in their bodies, and the other two are humans, albeit dead humans from two completely different cultures.

     

    Roku/Sozin

    Something angsty for both fic and art, please, or bittersweet, or completely, utterly fucked up. Unrequited love or mutual pining that's never resolved in more than fine with me, and, for fic, questions about loyalty and what being the Avatar means, and maybe some Fire Nation culture/lore.

    For art, I'd love flames and fire—they're both firebenders, after all! And maybe dragons, too?

     

    Suki/Ty Lee, Sokka/Suki/Ty Lee

    For these two, or these three, I'd love 'Ty Lee joins the Kyoshi Warriors'. Past Azula/Ty Lee would be an added bonus, of course, and I'd love a gentle fic about grief and loss. Hurt/comfort would be lovely, as would a bittersweet tone, and mutual support and bonding.

    For art, them being dorky together and/or fighting together. If you're doing Sokka/Suki/Ty Lee, my wild-and-throwing-it-out-there prompt is all three of them in the Kyoshi Warriors uniform?

     

    Ursa/Female Dragon

    Okay, fine. Most of my A:TLA 'ships for this exchange are crackships can you not hear me crying 'porn with plot' here. But hear me out! Ran and Sho (Shaw? The Wiki says 'Shaw', but it looks weird) may not be the only dragons alive—maybe one or two dragons survived on some far distant island? And maybe Ursa, once she's exiled, visits those far distant islands? (Comicsverse ignoring is great! Or you can make it comic-compliant, maybe something with the Blue Dragon? I'm not bothered either way.)

    For art, I'd love to see the dragon curled around Ursa.


     

    Crossover Fandom


    Fic

    • I'd love either crossovers or fusions, and either way, worldbuilding! Especially for crossovers, I'd adore seeing how characters end up in each other's worlds (or how the worlds co-exist).
    • I've talked about what I like about A:TLA, Harry Potter, Tolkien fandoms (and I'm including Smith of Wootton Major there, because the atmosphere is similar), and Star Wars in those fandom sections, but for the other fandoms, I'm going to just outline a little bit of what I like (with the exception of US Politics and the Odyssey; I've talked about that in the Hillary/Leia section and the Erendis/Penelope section respectively).
    • His Dark Materials:
      • Holes between worlds! Holes between worlds have such huge potential, and I'd love to see that explored.
      • Heaven starting on Earth. I'm not fond of religion-bashing—agnostic myself, but live and let live and all that—but heaven starting on Earth is a wonderful truth, and I'd love any exploration of that.
      • Grand, multiverse-scale wars, and people willing to die for their ideals are so very iddy for me!
    • Kingsman:
      • I love the combination of over-the-top-crack and seriousness, and either/or works for me just fine.
      • Smooth, suave agents kicking ass! I love the Bond-style sleekness and how very British it all is.
      • I love the spy element, and missions, and what Kingsmen do, and basically the day-to-day running of the agency.
      • Harry living and becoming Arthur. Need I say more?
      • I'm also interested in the lives of the people behind the scenes, especially that of, say, female technicians or mechanics etc.
      • The political side of Kingsman, kingmaking and other things we never get to see.
    • Narnia:
      • Kings and queens, and all the trappings of monarchy!
      • What happens post-Last Battle? I'm especially interested in how Susan deals with it.
      • Narnian politics and how Aslan comes into play in that.
      • Explorations of 'once a King or Queen of Narnia, always a King or Queen of Narnia'.
      • Does what happens in Narnia affect the real world? And if so, how?


    Aredhel (Silmarillion)/Goldberry (LotR)


    Kind of a crack pairing, yes, but maybe Aredhel stumbles upon Goldberry instead of Eöl, and everything goes much happier? Or maybe Goldberry finds her as she and Maeglin flee from Eöl. And the timelines possibly don't match up, but maybe Goldberry was born/created/sprung fully-formed from the River-woman before the First Age?

     

    Arwen (LotR)/Lírien (Hobbit)

    Arwen and Lírien in Rivendell, something gentle. Music being worked in is lovely, and I'd love discussions of music theory, especially. Just plain bittersweet goodness, really.

    Maybe Lírien and Arwen were lovers before Aragorn? Or something with loyalty kink and maybe some D/s?

     

    Arwen (LotR)/Lírien (Hobbit)/Tauriel (Hobbit)

    Maybe Tauriel visits Rivendell, post-Hobbit? Or maybe she takes Legolas' place as ambassador to Rivendell? Or maybe Arwen goes to Lórien and Lírien is part of her entourage, and Tauriel happens to be in Lórien too? Or an AU where Arwen doesn't fall in love with Aragorn?

    Again, I'd love loyalty kink and D/s, and maybe something with Tauriel fighting or being injured?

     

    Celebrían (LotR)/Nerdanel (Silmarillion)

    I'd love to see Celebrían and Nerdanel meeting in Valinor—anything goes after that, really, but perhaps Nerdanel eagerly drinking up news from Middle-earth (especially about her one remaining niece, who just happens to be Celebrían's mother), and Celebrían being slightly starstruck about meeting Nerdanel?

     

    Erendis (Silmarillion)/Penelope (Odyssey)

    The main thing I love about the tragic Greek hero is the concept of the fatal flaw, and I'm a little bit annoyed there isn't much exploration of that with women. I also adore tragedy in all its various forms.

    The similarities here are obvious, and to be honest, I was thinking of something cracky with the two of them going fuck their husbands and banging, but if you could get a serious premise to work, hat would be wonderful, too. The worldbuilding is slightly iffy here, and either handwaving or whatever elaborate explanation you come up with would be lovely!

     

    Erendis (Silmarillion)/Queen of Faerie (Smith of Wootton Major)

    Who was the Queen of Faerie? Was she part of Arda or from a completely different world? How did Erendis find her way to her?

    I'd love something about the star of Faerie and Erendis being 'Lady of the Star-brow'—there's a very obvious connection there. Was she the first Starbrow? Or is she the Queen of Faerie, and these are selfcest shenanigans?

     

    Finduilas of Dol Amroth (LotR)/Uinen (Silmarillion)

    Maybe Finduilas used to go down to the sea and talk to it when she lived in Dol Amroth? Or maybe, after she dies, the sea claims her? Was pining for the sea when she was in Gondor?

    I'd love something vaguely supernatural, please, if you can do that, and maybe something to do with swans?

     

    Goldberry (LotR)/Haleth (Silmarillion)

    I see Goldberry as a sort of Middle-earth Calypso, doomed to fall in love with women who can't stay, for crimes which may or may not be mentioned, but that's just my interpretation, and I'd love to see your take on how this happens! I'd love to see enchantment and a moment stolen in time, maybe something gentle and bittersweet.

     

    Goldberry (LotR)/Pomona Sprout (Harry Potter), Pomona Sprout (Harry Potter)/Yavanna (Silmarillion)

    Two people (well, a witch and an Ainu/whatever you think Goldberry is) who love the earth! (And I wouldn't mind Pomona/Goldberry/Yavanna at all, if you want!)

    We know that Yavanna tended to the 'small and secret things', and was one of the few Valar to go to Middle-earth—and maybe she still does, in spite of the Hiding of Valinor? And, again, my Calypso!Goldberry headcanon is a thing, and Pomona is the next person Goldberry falls for?

    Or perhaps Pomona wandered the world when she was younger, and met a mysterious woman, or maybe her lover visits Professor Sprout at night, in the Forbidden Forest.

     

    Goldberry (LotR)/Yavanna (Silmarillion)

    I confess that this is one of my ALL THE SMUT 'ships, and I'd adore smut with a supernatural/elementary twist to it, but I'd also adore more plotty fic.

    Again, I feel like Yavanna's frequent visits to Middle-earth and her tending to the 'small and secret things' could come into play here—maybe she stumbles upon Goldberry this way? (As a bonus, I'd adore water-lilies somehow being part of the story!)

     

    Hillary Clinton (US Politics)/Leia Organa (Star Wars)

    So, um, I saw this pairing in the tagset and dear nominator, you're a fucking genius.

    Women in politics is wonderful, and as different as the politics of the Republic and the US (I feel like there's a pun in there...) are, I'd love to see them clash! Or Leia and Hillary clash over said politics. Or discuss said politics.

    Worldbuilding! For this pairing, especially, I'd love worldbuilding! How do they end up in each other's worlds? Or an AU where they're both part of the same 'verse? I'd love to see women in action and politics, of course, but I'd also adore smut!

    I'd love either present!Hillary and TFA!Leia, or OT!Leia and young!Hillary. If it's the former, hardened warriors, if it's the latter, fiery young idealists. I just really want them to (lady?) bone.

    (And I know it's a little too soon, and I'd be more than fine with anything set pre-election, but maybe an AU where Hillary wins, or 2020 and Hillary wins, or...)

     

    Roxy Morton (Kingsman)/Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter), Roxy Morton (Kingsman)/Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter)

    (And, again, I wouldn't be opposed to threesomes!)

    I'm sure the Ministry of Magic must know of Kingsman, and maybe they need a liaison? Or is Roxy a witch from an old family who decides to do something different? I can imagine all kinds of wacky scenarios that lead to these two meeting, so go wild! What I'd love to see is their different fighting styles, and the two (or three!) ending up fighting bad guys together and saving the world. Or just Kingsman-style shenanigans. Or snarking at each other and all sorts of banter. Or trying to impress each other and going ridiculously over-the-top. Or—you get my point, don't you?

     

    Susan Pevensie (Narnia)/Goldberry (LotR)

    'Stumbling upon strange women' seems to be a theme for my crossover pairings and for my Goldberry pairings too! Susan meeting Goldberry, and being confused because there's aren't any dryads in this world! I'd love to see what kind of scenario they'd meet in—Goldberry wouldn't wander far from the forest, I think, so perhaps Susan going to some sort of trip? And Susan discovering the magic of Middle-Earth would be lovely!

     

    Susan Pevensie (Narnia)/Minerva McGonagall (Harry Potter)

    It's not-inconceivable that these two would meet—they're around the same age, after all, and Susan, I imagine, travels enough, and maybe Muggle-Repelling Charms don't work properly on her? And Professor McGonagall could easily have a partner at home. I'd love to see these two women with each other. (I also love the idea of Susan being an ardent feminist as she grows older! (Also I would kill for historically accurate feminism, with all the flaws that entails.)

     

    Uinen (Silmarillion)/Goldberry (LotR)

    Goldberry is the River-woman's daughter, so it's not inconceivable that she'd be somehow related to Uinen, if incest's your thing. If it's not, they still have quite a lot in common! I'd like to see them meeting—what do they make of each other? What sort of trysts do they have? They both seem to be wild, free spirits, so maybe something supernatural?

     

    Xaphania (His Dark Materials)/Galadriel (Silmarillion)

    I specified Silm!Galadriel for this because I would adore Galadriel at the height of her rebellion against the Valar meeting Xaphania—perhaps one of the holes the subtle knife made was into the world of Middle-earth? What would they make of each other? Their motivations and situations, while somewhat similar in some aspects, are completely different in others—would they clash? And perhaps some of Galadriel's maturing and growth was influenced by Xaphania?

     

     

    Harry Potter


    Art, fic

    • I haven't watched Fantastic Beasts or read The Cursed Child, and, while I don't mind spoilers for the former, I'd prefer not to read or see anything about the latter. I'm sorry, but it's just not my thing.
    • Magic! I adore magic, and all the wackiness of the magical world. I'd love to see explorations of both the dark, not-so-dark, and in-between magics, especially the inbetweens (how do you call something Dark Magic? Where do you draw the line? And how blurred is the aforesaid line?).
    • I'd love to see more about how the wizarding world works, particularly the Ministry of Magic. Are there any commercial centres other than in Diagon Alley? How does the wizarding world work in other countries? How does the Order work? Basically, the nitty-gritty details we didn't see in the books. We only got a general overview of how magical society functions (I imagine Hogwarts is very isolated from the rest of society), and that through Harry's limited PoV, and I'd love to know more.
    • Several of the characters are, ahem, magical beings, magical creatures (except obviously not, because they're people, and even that word is a perfect embodiment of prejudice against them). An exploration of the magic and mechanics of this would be lovely. How do other people see them? How do they see themselves? And, of course, dealing with prejudice and discrimination is more than fine
    • HP is rife with weird, wacky, and wonderful(ly spooky) settings and magical artefacts, and I'd love to see them incorporated into your story/artwork. Ghosts, Inferi, Dark Creatures—I'd love to see them all!
    • War, especially if you're writing the First War with Voldemort. It was a war run from the shadows, and I'd love to see something about that—perhaps Order missions and meetings? I'd love to see how the war fucks everything up, and people dying and suspicions cast on each other.

     

    Alice Longbottom/Lily Evans

    I can imagine this going two ways—either them being girlfriends when they were in Hogwarts, or a canon divergence AU where Lily ends up with Alice instead of James (or perhaps James dies but Lily doesn't?). Something slice-of-life-y, perhaps? For the AU situation, I'd love to see what would change, and what wouldn't.

     

    Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald

    I 'ship this very, very much, and I'd love to see anything about them, ranging from dark (and possibly AU) to bittersweet.

    Things I'd enjoy include Dumbledore and Grindelwald when they were young, Dumbledore looking back on his past, an exploration about why Dumbledore waited so long to duel Grindelwald, Dumbledore visiting Grindelwald (or a variation on that theme!) in Nurmengard after his fall, or Grindelwald's choices in his final years and why he made those aforesaid choices.

    We see the remains of the 'for the greater good' morality in Dumbledore's later years—how did Dumbledore and Grindelwald affect each other? How were they similar, and how were they different, to each other? I love morally grey characters and situations where good and bad aren't clearly delineated, and this 'ship is perfect for those things!

     

    Amelia Bones/Minerva McGonagall

    I'd love to see more of Professor McGonagall's personal life, and, from what we've heard about Amelia Bones, they seem like they'd fit together very well. Women who are very busy with their professional lives and have trouble making time for personal things is a narrative kink for me, so whatever you do with that would be lovely, as would all the angst (and oh the angst, especially post-OotP—Minerva grieving her, perhaps?) and origin stories. And perhaps the two of them working together in the First War?

     

    Amelia Bones/Griselda Marchbanks

    Brought to you by my fascination with Griselda Marchbanks—I'd love to know more about her, and Amelia too. I'd love to see their professional lives, and them interacting with each other in that context (and perhaps they even met at work, too?), and I'd basically love anything to do with the two of them.

     

    Bellatrix Black Lestrange/Narcissa Black Malfoy/Andromeda Black Tonks

    Sistercest! I'd love something dark and fucked-up (but not non-con) for this pairing, and it's not a 'ship that's likely to end well. Either when they're younger (and betrayal and angst on both sides, after Andromeda leaves?) or DH-era, and the fucked-up-ness that would entail. (In fic, any two of this constellation as endgame is fine, as long as OT3 is the predominant pairing.) I'd love to see the similarities and differences between them, especially with regard to Andromeda.

     

    Cho Chang/Luna Lovegood

    Ravenclaw Tower shenanigans! Even Ravenclaws need to relax, after all, after all those long hours of studying—and what better way to relax than sex?

    Or, if you'd prefer to write/draw something non-smutty, maybe something set in the future, the two of them getting together, maybe at a Ministry event, or (correct me if I'm wrong), we don't know what Cho's eventual career is, so maybe she and Luna go into the same line of work?

     

    Fleur Delacour/Gabrielle Delacour

    Sistercest! Please no underage Gabrielle (unless it's Gabrielle having an unrequited crush on Fleur, with absolutely no reciprocation on Fleur's part, in which case, yes, please!), but other than that, I'd love anything ranging from dark to sweet and gentle.

    For more specific prompts: unrequited crushes, again, or maybe Gabrielle comes to her sister for comfort when they're older, after one of their parents has died? Or maybe it's a Veela thing, and Gabrielle and Fleur aren't immune to each other's charms?

     

    Fleur Delacour/Ginny Weasley

    Ginny noticing all the little things which annoy her about Fleur, and going on and on about these things, sounds suspiciously like the beginnings of a crush to me! I don't mind either unrequited love or an AU, but whichever it is, I'd love snark and banter and Fleur's accent. I'd adore Ginny being annoyed and infatuated at the same time, and Fleur's obliviousness would be an added bonus!

     

    Fleur Delacour/Nymphadora Tonks

    I confess, I adore this ship mostly for its visual potential, and yes, this is a more art-heavy prompt than fic-heavy. For once! I love Tonks' Metamorphmagus abilities, and something playing with that would be wonderful. I just want to see them laughing together! And something playing up their differences, perhaps? (And maybe Tonks pining not for Remus, but for Fleur in HBP?)

     

    Ginny Weasley/Luna Lovegood

    Luna can be very easily interpreted as having a crush on Ginny—so unrequited love? Or maybe Luna and Ginny fool around when they're younger? Or an AU future fic where they fall for each other?

    I love that Ginny is protective of Luna, and I'd love to see her defending her. Or maybe just the two of them having a conversation, or studying together, or, in Deathly Hallows, organizing the DA against the Carrows?

     

    Lily Evans & Remus Lupin

    So, Remus speaks of Lily with enough familiarity that I imagine they're friends outside of (and maybe before) Lily's relationships with James. I'd love to see them spending time together, both during and after Hogwarts. How did they meet and become friends? How did James' crush affect their relationship (or not)? They were Prefects together—something about that? Or post-Hogwarts, doing things for the Order (missions, errands, meetings) together? We know that Lily was one of the few people who believed that Remus wasn't the spy, so maybe something about that? Or something about Remus being a werewolf?

     

    Marlene McKinnon/Dorcas Meadowes

    I'd love to see them in school, or during the First War. War stories always have my love, and I'd love something about the Lost Generation and how they've all lost their childhoods and youth. Something about fighting together in the Order, perhaps, and also angst about war and loss and betrayal? And this is one of those stories that won't get a happily-ever-after; a focus on that, maybe?

     

     

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Art, fic

    • Okay, so this is a weird request, but please no everyone lives/some people live AUs unless I specifically ask for them? The point of Rogue One, for me, is that everyone dies (and, personally, I don't think there's anything left for any of them if they do live), so I'd prefer not to see this. No unrequested AUs from the movie at all, please? (I don't mind picking and choosing details from the book at all, though! That's what I love to do. And if I ask for AUs then they're more than fine.)
    • The main thing I love about Rogue One is the nitty-gritty behind-the-scene details, and the toll the Rebellion takes on all its members.
    • I'd adore backstory and generally terrible things they've done (because I don't think any of them haven't done one or two awful things).
    • Quick Cassian note: I love that he's a tortured idealist who's done awful things (seriously, Cassian/self-loathing is my OTP, and Cassian selling his integrity for the Rebellion is something I'd love to see, as is calculating!Cassian), so please don't make him a person who hasn't done bad things? Also for Jyn, although she's actually more Han Solo type, and I love that! (I would seriously love to see Jyn having been a smuggler at some point.)
    • I'd love more on the workings of the Rebellion, and all the petty annoyances, and also, for characters who are part of the Rebellion, Rebellion missions.
    • I'd love to see traumatized, exhausted characters stretched to their limits, and exhausted, harried leaders stretched to their limits.
    • Smutty things: lots and lots of loyalty kink, please, and superior officers/people under them, and kneeling and D/s. The command hierarchies of both the Empire and the Rebellion are just made for this!
    • The Empire—I'd love to see more about what sort of things they do.
    • The Force, and the Jedi, and explorations of that, and what legends about the Jedi and stories about them remain in the Empire.
    • This is a general Star Wars thing, but I love the various planets, and I'd love whatever new planets you come up with! Also cultures of various planets and culture clashes?
    • There's a lot of moral grey area in Rogue One and I love that, so something about that? Especially how extremists are presented very neutrally and how the supposed 'good guys' do bad things, and, again, that's presented neutrally.
    • For art: I love how worn and ragged everyone and their costumes look! And also, hair game. Star Wars hair game is strong.

     

    Bail Organa & Cassian Andor & Mon Mothma, Bail Organa/Cassian Andor, Cassian Andor & Mon Mothma

    Okay, so Cassian seems to be pretty high up in the Rebellion hierarchy—I'd love to see him interact with these two. Maybe he's being sent off on one of the missions where he does terrible things, or maybe a mission report afterwards and he's pretty banged up? Or I'd love to see strategy meetings, behind-the-scene workings of the Rebellion. Or Cassian being in the Rebellion since he was six—does that have anything to do with Mon and/or Bail? Or, for Bail/Cassian, loyalty kink and mentor/protegee? Or an aftermath of a mission, and all the fucked-up feelings that'd involve?

     

    Bail Organa & Mon Mothma, Bail Organa & Mon Mothma & Senator Pamlo

    Again, behind-the-scenes workings of the Rebellion! I'd love to see High Command meetings, or the Senators engaging in political manoeuvring, or motivating Rebellion troops, or organizing missions, or risk assessment meeting held privately, or infighting.

    If it's just Bail and Mon, I'd also love to see them with their public masks off, and what the chances of the Rebellion were really like, and reminiscing and trying not reminisce and all the painful things, and maybe even some conversations about Leia.

     

    Bodhi Rook/Cassian Andor

    Um, this is basically two pretty people being pretty. That's it. That's my motivation. Especially the pretty art.

    End-of-the-world-is-nigh smut would be lovely, though I don't know whether there'd be enough time to squeeze it in between everything that's happening. Alternatively, Cassian is the one who helps Bodhi regain his sanity, albeit inadvertently, so something about that? Or Bodhi hero-worshipping Cassian and Cassian being guilty about that, or manipulating that for the good of the Rebellion? Or the two of them having fucked-up, guilt- and baggage-filled sex?

    This is one of the very few pairings I don't mind AUs for, so maybe a two of them live AU where they help each other to heal? (Or continue being totally fucked up, I don't mind either.)

     

    Bodhi Rook/Galen Erso

    Manipulative Galen taking advantage of (or even creating...) Bodhi's infatuation for him! This is one of the 'ships for which I'd love twisted, dark, dark stuff. 

    Bodhi seems quite devoted to Galen—his last word is Galen's name—and I'd love to see Galen using this devotion as a means to get Bodhi to take his message to the Rebellion. Emotional manipulation and grooming would also be welcome! Basically, I'd love Bodhi backstory and more about why he defected (and maybe bonus D/s and loyalty kink and/or authority kink?).

    Or, for maximum darkness factor, I'd love to see Galen taking Bodhi under his wing when he's very young and carefully grooming him—isolating him socially, making it so that Galen seems like the only one who's on Bodhi's side, making Bodhi think he's worthless and Galen is the only person who'll put up with him. All for the greater good, of course, so that Bodhi will eventually defect when Galen orders him to. And then maybe either the noncon brainwashing route (Galen wants sex, and Bodhi wants to please Galen?) or Bodhi develops a crush on Galen and Galen uses that for sex and maybe Krennic/Galen/Bodhi at some point.

     

    Cassian Andor & his parents

    So, the book says that Cassian was originally with the Seperatists, but I'm blithely ignoring that (and also, Fest ew ew), although I wouldn't mind seeing how the transition would work, and how Cassian came to be the tortured idealist (not just repeating mantras but genuinely believeing them) he is, but. If you ignore the book. He was in this fight since he was six years old. That means he was six, if he's twenty-six, and that was the exact point at which Padmé and Bail and Mon were plotting the beginnings of the Rebellion, so: how did he get into this fight? Why are his parents okay with this? Were they part of the original Delegation of Two Thousand, and maybe one of the people most deep in it? Was one of them a Senator's aide? Were they dead by the time he was six? If so, how? Basically, what the fuck were his parents thinking allowing a six-year-old to become a child soldier?

    Or present (or just-before-R1) Cassian reminiscing about his parents, maybe? Or his line about not having the luxury to choose—does that relate to his parents, somehow? Basically, I want Cassian with all the angst-y back story, please!

    For art, happy times with his parents as a kid? Or watching them die or being separated from them?
     

     

    Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso

    Characters thrown together in desperate circumstances, sparks flying between them, tragic doomed story except not love story because they don't have time to fall in love, two angsty people who're both not very nice at all (and convinced of their own rightness) clashing, all the UST! (Honestly, the UST is most of what I love about this 'ship.)

    I'd love to see missing moments or gapfillers (they totally kissed in the elevator), or something about their last moments. Or moments they almost-but-not-quite met pre-canon?

     

    Cassian Andor & K-2SO

    So, this is one of the things I do love about the novelization, the relationship between K-2 and Cassian (and K-2 offering to wipe Cassian's memories be still my beating heart), and I'd love to see more of it!

    How did Cassian acquire K-2? What sort of situations were they in over the years? Basically, I'd love banter and snark and tortured!Cassian (both literally and figuratively) and perhaps some K-2 comforting Cassian (or attempting to, because Cassian is the 'everything is fine even when it's not' type).

     

    Cassian Andor/Leia Organa, Cassian Andor & Leia Organa

    (Brought to you by my extreme desire to torture both Leia and Cassian, because yessssss.) What gets me about both Leia and Cassian is that they're idealists and optimists but also—grim about it? Optimism and idealism aren't personality traits for them, they're life choices, and they're idealists in the sense of believing in their cause to the exclusion of everything else, and giving everything and willing to do anything for that cause, but they're not naïve and hopeful in the way that Luke is. And that's definitely because of the things he did for the Rebellion in Cassian's case, and also probably in Leia's case? And Leia hasn't been completely destroyed in the way Cassian has, and I'd love to see something about that, maybe?

    Both Cassian and Leia were part of the intelligence branch of the Rebellion and they were both pretty high up in said intelligence division, so I'd like to think that they'd have met as some point. Maybe Cassian was Leia's mentor? Or maybe he was a contact between the Senate and Yavin 4 at some point? Or even just accidental meeting on the Rebel base.

     

    Cassian Andor & Rebel soldiers

    I would love to see Cassian commanding Rebels, maybe sending someone under his command on a mission or supervising a mission? Or I'd love to see him working with someone. (And maybe bad things happening to said person?) I don't see Cassian being close enough to anyone to call them a friend, but maybe colleagues.

    Also, I have a headcanon that he's a very, very good leader because he inspires loyalty and he gives his all to the Rebellion, and also because he's devoted to the Rebellion enough that he can take risks when necessary, so maybe something about what the people who work under him think of him (And this is super-super-optional, but I also think that some of the Rebels who came for the Scarif mission came because of loyalty to Cassian. And even if they didn't, it says something that he's the person they come to in that situation).

     

    Cassian Andor/Original Male Character

    Okay, so this thread on FFA is basically everything I want for this. Basically, Cassian not being able to let people in and having lots of angsty meaningless sex + self-loathing with Rebels, and also using sex as an intelligence-gathering tool (I adore all the scenarios described in this comment in aforementioned thread). Meaningless angsty sex? Honeypot missions? Sex as just another thing he's given for the Rebellion? Cassian/self-loathing? Dubcon for the greater good? Sign me the fuck up!

     

    Chirrut Îmwe & any Jedi

    So, Chirrut's mantra--“I am with the Force and the Force is with me”—is something I love, and I'd like to know more about his relationship with the Force, and with Force-users!

    I'd love to know more about the Guardians of the Whills and how they relate to the Jedi! We know that Qui-Gon (and Yoda and Obi-Wan) learnt about how to become Force Ghosts from the path of the Whills, so maybe something about that? Or maybe a chance meeting with Chirrut while on some mission? (Except not a chance meeting, of course, because the Force works in mysterious ways...).

    Or maybe Chirrut and the legends that have sprung up around the Jedi post-Operation Knightfall and Order 66? Or how he reacted to those events when he heard of them? Maybe even a Jedi coming to Jedha while fleeing the Empire?

     

    Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus

    Okay, so they were acting totally married in the movie. I'm pretty sure there's a Heterosexual ExplanationTM for that, but I don't want to hear it. The subtext was right there (disclaimer that subtext doesn't equal text yada yada)!

    Warrior/monk ships are A Thing for me, and I also lovelovelove how they've played with the tropes, so Chirrut is the reckless, asskicking one (and Baze's fond exasperation is lovely!), and I love their dynamic.

    How they met, their pre-canon years, canon gapfillers—I'd love anything, really, whether bittersweet or complete angst (and maybe something about Jedha and the Guardians of the Whills?).

     

    Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus & Bodhi Rook & Cassian Andor & Jyn Erso & K-2SO

    Gapfillers! I'd adore gapfillers, especially during/before/around the battle. They were a group of people dragged along by Cassian pulled together by circumstance and they don't really know each other very well; how do their group dynamics work?

    Again, I'd love moments where they almost-but-not-quite-met. I'd also love to see any awkward moments between them (and there must have been plenty of those on the way back from Eadu).

     

    Galen Erso/Orson Krennic

    Director Krennic's feelings of betrayal seemed so personal in the movie—was this because Galen was his lover?

    Again, manipulative!Galen using sex (and Krennic's feelings?) as a means to his end, because Galen, we already know, is very devoted to the cause. I'd love to see anything about them—maybe Galen's work on the Death Star, or their history before Lyra? And Krennic unwittingly helping Galen to plant the flaw in the Death Star?

     

    Mon Mothma/Senator Pamlo

    I'm fascinated by Tynnra Pamlo—despite the existence of the Delegation of Two Thousand, I always thought that Bail and Mon were the only senators who were actively part of the Rebellion, but apparently not.

    So, Rebellion love affairs and High Command politics! Senator Pamlo is presumably still a Senator, unlike Mon—how did they make it work? Did they meet through the Rebellion (or the Delegation), or did they know each other before hand? What happened to Senator Pamlo once the Senate was dissolved? I have so many questions that don't have answers, and I'm curious.

    Mon and Tynnra appear to have conflicting ideas of the hows of the Rebellion, despite sharing an ideology—how do they make it work despite that? Are there conflicts, within their bedroom and in High Command? The way they live, do they even properly have a bedroom?


     

     

    Star Wars Original Trilogy

    Art, fic

    • I don't play hard-and-fast with EU; I don't mind complete faithfulness, completely ignoring its existence, or something inbetween. (I consider the novelizations part of the EU).
    • Planets! I'd love explorations of different planets and their people!
    • Politics! Behind-the-scene views and nitty-gritty details are always my favourite things, and I'd especially love this for characters who are Senators of Rebellion/Resistance leaders.
    • I'm interested in the way the Jedi fail. If the attachment thing is what you love, then go with it, but I'd also love to see a different take. I've always wondered why the Jedi—a religious order which you could leave if you wanted to—are considered wrong for the non-attachment thing (and I admit that the demonization of Buddhist culture and lumping different kinds of Buddhism plus a few other Eastern religions together isn't my favourite thing!). I'd love a take on the Jedi where the Jedi's failings are that it's not made more explicit that leaving is OK, that they get too bogged down in politics instead of doing what's right, and that they encourage attachment in the form of the (very close) Master/Padawan relationship (and whatever else faults, I'm sure there are many!). A respectful take on so-called 'Eastern' religions would be much appreciated!
    • Regarding Anakin—I understand his position, and where he's coming from, but 'it's all Obi-Wan's/Yoda's/Padmé's/Qui-Gon's fault' is not my thing, and I have zero sympathy for the fact that he killed little children. Reluctantly, maybe, (and not-so-reluctantly with the Tuskens) but he killed little children, and I don't really like that. At all. What I would enjoy is an AU where Anakin left the Jedi because he realized that he wanted attachments.
    • Or just ignoring the attachments things in favour of all the ships is fine as well!

     

    Leia Organa/Luke Skywalker/Han Solo

    I love the messy dynamics and political manoeuvring and adventure and philosophy and all other stuff this entails. Messiness is lovely, and all the angst and conflict (especially over Leia's and Luke's birth family) and guilt and general fucked-up things, although love and trust and mutual support and 'let's see who kicks ass best' competitions are also great.

     

    Leia Organa/Mon Mothma

    I'd love Leia/Mon Mothma fic in any form. Specific prompts include mentorship, politican-ly peers and in a casual relationship (before Leia gets together with Han, though), or Leia going to Mon Mothma for help with the Resistance after Ben Falls, and finding comfort in an old friend maybe wasn't part of the plan and certainly not officially sanctioned, but...

    For art, maybe Mon Mothma mentoring Leia, or the two of them just talking. Or something pre-TFA but only by a few years, a quiet love scene, General Organa and the former leader of the Rebellion and of the New Republic.

     

    Leia Organa/Toryn Farr

    Junior officer and commander! Loyalty kink! I'd especially love to see how the Rebellion works, so, for fic, a day-in-the-life would be great. For art, maybe them discussing some plans together, or Leia giving a command, or kissing during a stolen moment?

     

    Toryn Farr/Original Female Character

    I'd love to see more of Toryn's life in the Rebellion, with her girlfriend or wife, also part of the Rebellion, both on missions and on the Rebel base. And what do they do post-RotJ? Do one or both of them go into civil service? Do something different all together? Settle down and/or start a family?

    For art, maybe the two of them spending downtime together on the Rebel base, kissing or just reading or working together. Or, if you go with the pilot, maybe her girlfriend/wife taking Toryn for a ride on a starship?

     

     

    Star Wars Prequel Trilogy

    Art, fic

    • I don't play hard-and-fast with EU; I don't mind complete faithfulness, completely ignoring its existence, or something inbetween. (I consider the novelizations part of the EU).

I'd love a take on the Jedi where the Jedi's failings are that it's not made more explicit that leaving is OK, that they get too bogged down in politics instead of doing what's right, and that they encourage attachment in the form of the (very close) Master/Padawan relationship (and whatever else faults, I'm sure there are many!). A respectful take on so-called 'Eastern' religions would be much appreciated!
    • Regarding Anakin—I understand his position, and where he's coming from, but 'it's all Obi-Wan's/Yoda's/Padmé's/Qui-Gon's fault' is not my thing, and I have zero sympathy for the fact that he killed little children. Reluctantly, maybe, (and not-so-reluctantly with the Tuskens) but he killed little children, and I don't really like that. At all. What I would enjoy is an AU where Anakin left the Jedi because he realized that he wanted attachments.
    • Or just ignoring the attachments things in favour of all the ships is fine as well!

     

    Bail Organa & Leia Organa

    Bail mentoring Leia in politics and introducing her to the Rebellion, perhaps? Or Bail telling Leia stories about the Old Republic and about his old friends (dressed up in pseudonyms, of course)? Or Bail telling Leia about General Kenobi, perhaps? Or Leia mourning Bail post-Alderaan? (Feel free to combine this group with Breha & Leia)

     

    Bail Organa & Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Politics! Politics galore, please, and Obi-Wan's distaste for it, and banter and snark, maybe Bail and Obi-Wan having to work together on some Senate committee regarding the war. Or, if you've read Wild Space, maybe the two of them post-novel, some dark H/C and/or angst, with suitable doom and gloom premonitions about the fall of the Republic? Or Obi-Wan and Bail sharing vague suspicions about how the war is not-quite-right, maybe something to do with the Delegation of Two Thousand and/or the Rebellion (during or post-RotS)?

     

    Breha Organa & Leia Organa

    Breha with little Leia, please, taking time out of her busy day to be with her daughter, please, or older Leia reminiscing about her mother (and if you've also offered Leia & Mon Mothma, maybe the two of them reminiscing together?).

    Breha Organa & Padmé Amidala

    Politics or friendship (or both!) during the movies; or maybe something about the Delegation of Two Thousand? I'd love to see how two Queens of two different planets with two completely different systems react to each other's style of politics! Or maybe something about the founding of the Rebellion. Or a Padmé lives AU, maybe, with Padmé finding shelter in Alderaan for a while, or running the Rebellion?

     

    Obi-Wan Kenobi & Anakin Skywalker

    Maybe fighting together in the Clone Wars, or the lost years, the ten years between TPM and AotC, Anakin as Obi-Wan's Padawan, first entering the Temple or as a 13-14 year old? Obi-Wan advising and teaching Anakin, and their fucked-up relationship and how everything is messy between them but they love each other anyway (not in a shippy way! Friendship, please, or not-quite-friendship, but whatever you call what's between Masters and Padawans). Or, if you want to go AU, Mustafar AUs are always lovely, the more fucked-up the better, or maybe an AU where Obi-Wan finds out about Anakin's reaction to Shmi's death, or AU where Qui-Gon lives, but Obi-Wan trains Anakin anyway?

    Fall Out Boy's Centuries is my theme song for these two, switching between Anakin's and Obi-Wan's POVs. For Obi-Wan's, Little Mix's 'Lightning' (and maybe Qui-Gon angst), only not romantically.

     

    Obi-Wan Kenobi/Mace Windu

    I'd love to see Mace and Obi-Wan reconciling their relationship with the values of the Jedi—or maybe they don't? Maybe the two of them leave the Jedi (after Anakin is fully trained, of course)? What will that change? Or mentor/student, with Mace taking Obi-Wan under his wing after Qui-Gon's death?

     

    Obi-Wan Kenobi & Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi & Yoda

    I see Obi-Wan as having quite strong bonds with Yoda and with Mace; we see the three of them together a lot, and I know this is a plot device, but Obi-Wan is still a junior Master spending a lot of time with senior Council members—maybe they're vetting him for the Council? Maybe one or both of them mentor Obi-Wan through the early days of his Knighthood, and later strike up a friendship And I see Obi-Wan as a Master who never got to be Knight—or if he was a Knight, he earned his Mastery quickly (see: 'Master Kenobi' in AotC, which most people interpret as just a form of address, I know, but even Yoda calls him that), so maybe something about that? Or, the final scene in AotC where Yoda, Mace, and Obi-Wan are having what amounts to their own private Council session (when Obi-Wan isn't even on the Council)—what's going on there?

     

    Padmé Amidala & Leia Organa & Luke Skywalker

    Padmé lives and goes on the run with her children! I'd love to see Luke and Leia growing up with their mother (and whoever comes with them? Obi-Wan? Ahsoka? Sabé?) and eventually joining the Rebellion. Alternately, if you feel like angst, Padmé watching her children from wherever she is within the Force?

     

    Padmé Amidala/Cordé/Dormé/Moteé/Versé, Padmé Amidala/Eirtaé/Rabé/Sabé/Saché/Yané

    I've put the Queen-era and Senator-era handmaiden 'ships together, because I basically want the same things from both; I hope that's alright!

    I'd love to see loyalty kink for these 'ships, and all the powerplay and identity porn. Naboo rituals, both of the traditional and sex-y sort, would also be wonderful! (Chastity play? The Queen submitting to her handmaidens as a ritual reminder that she serves her people? The handmaidens pledging loyalty to their Senator/Queen?)

     

    Padmé Amidala/Mon Mothma

    Politican-ly peers and in a casual relationship would be lovely, and I'd love to see more of Senate politics. Or a Padmé lives AU, the two of them founding the Rebellion together?For art, Mon Mothma and Padmé looking out at Coruscant together?

     

    Padmé Amidala/Sabé

    Queen and handmaiden on Naboo or later political intrigue would be lovely, with all the loyalty kink! I'm also very interested in Padmé lives AUs. And this doesn't even have to be very AU! Everything can go as planned in the OT! And Leia's remembering her mother in RotJ makes a little more sense! Basically, I'd love Padmé leading (or organizing or...) the Rebellion with her handmaiden by her side.

     

    Shmi Skywalker/Original Female Character

    F!preg, with Anakin having no father but two mothers? (Or the OFC being a physical manifestation of the Force?) Or maybe Shmi and a fellow slave finding comfort in each other. Something bittersweet, please, and perhaps something about Tatooine slave culture.

     

     

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Art, fic

    • I don't play hard-and-fast with EU; I don't mind complete faithfulness, completely ignoring its existence, or something inbetween. (I consider the novelizations part of the EU).
    • Planets! I'd love explorations of different planets and their people!
    • Politics! Behind-the-scene views and nitty-gritty details are always my favourite things, and I'd especially love this for characters who are Senators of Rebellion/Resistance leaders.
    • I'm interested in the way the Jedi fail. If the attachment thing is what you love, then go with it, but I'd also love to see a different take. I've always wondered why the Jedi—a religious order which you could leave if you wanted to—are considered wrong for the non-attachment thing (and I admit that the demonization of Buddhist culture and lumping different kinds of Buddhism plus a few other Eastern religions together isn't my favourite thing!). I'd love a take on the Jedi where the Jedi's failings are that it's not made more explicit that leaving is OK, that they get too bogged down in politics instead of doing what's right, and that they encourage attachment in the form of the (very close) Master/Padawan relationship (and whatever else faults, I'm sure there are many!).

    Jessika Pava/Phasma, Phasma/Rey

    Go AU all you want! What if Phasma had been the one guarding Rey when she escaped? What if Jessika was captured? The possibilities are endless. I don’t mind redemption, but not too easy (although something set far, far into the future with vague past redemption is fine)—and for these pairings, dark is lovely. Tragic backstory is always a bonus.

     

    Jessika Pava/Rey

    Partners in crime—flying together, whoever you choose being Rey's right hand (and yes, hand jokes welcome. Also Han jokes). Or maybe love in unexpected places, and/or Rey angst? Whichever you choose, I’d love something gentle, something about companionship. I don't mind either during TFA or post-TFA, and if post-TFA, speculation on the direction the next movie will go would be lovely!

     

    Leia Organa & Rey

    I love what little we see of their relationship in the movies, and I want more! Leia advising Rey, them finding kinship in each other, Jedi!Leia teaching Rey about the Force—anything you could think of would be lovely. Maybe a missing scene, with Leia and Rey at the Resistance base, mourning Han together and/or bonding. Or maybe post-TFA, a futurefic where they meet again?

     

    Rey/Original Female Character

    Rey wasn't completely alone on Jakku once upon a time. I know this has to end in tragedy (or at least mutual separation), but for the duration of the story I'd like a fierce, passionate, but ultimately gentle love.

    Or maybe Rey/a Rebellion pilot in the same vein as Jessika/Rey?

     

     

    The Lord of the Rings


    Art, fic

    • There aren't enough fics based on the Myths Transformed version of Middle-earth, and if that's something you'd like to explore, I'd love that, especially a more scientifically accurate (and sometimes, to my mind, a more tragic-and-dark-but-beautiful) vision of Middle-earth. (Other versions would also be wonderful, of course! This is just a specific thing I don't see much of.)
    • I love the fact that Tolkien's canon is a patchwork of different stories and mythologies, both in the Doylist and Watsonian sense, and fic exploring that would be wonderful.
    • Linked with the points above, I'm interested in lived vs. written stories, and Those Pesky Historians, and how unseen forces affect history.
    • Nature that comes alive.
    • The mortals and Elves/free will and destiny debate and the role of the Valar would be a wonderful thing to read about—I'd love exploration of any of the philosophical questions of Tolkien's world, really, but especially this, as detailed in the Athrabeth and writings about the role of the Valar.
    • All things Darkness and Light, really—I'm very fascinated by how these polar opposites work in Tolkien's world (and you can go back right to the beginning, to the Music, if you like), and how Arda is both grim and uplifting at the same time.
    • I love the way magic and power operate in Tolkien's world—the work he's done to make it believable is wonderful. Writing a green sun, indeed! Anything you can write about this would be welcome and much-adored.
    • I especially love the Ñoldor and Númenor, although every Age of Middle-earth holds my heart.
    • For interspecies relationships, I'd love to see an emphasis on otherness and trying to understand each other.

     

    Arwen/Éowyn, Éowyn/Lothíriel, Arwen & Éowyn & Lothíriel

    Politics! Politics galore, please, and also queens finding themselves away from home and taking comfort from their peers, and having adventures, and ruling while their husbands are away. For the 'ships, I don't mind either open relationships or infidelity. I'd also like a bit more about the Rohirrim. For Éowyn/Lothíriel especially, but all of these relationships and friendships, I love horses, so if you could include equestrian detail in the fic that'd also be lovely.

     

    Arwen & Gilraen

    What does Arwen's mother-in-law think about her? Surely they must have spent time together in Rivendell, possibly in the years before Arwen was betrothed, but after Aragorn had gone away. How did they get on? Very well, or not at all? Did Aragorn's youthful crush result in mutual embarrassment? Or did they laugh over it? And I'd love advice, given and received, and also Elven vs. Human perceptions of passing time.

     

    Arwen/Gilraen

    Oooh, I love this for its awkward connotations. A gentle fic, if portraying their relationship, but I'd also love a look at the awkwardness that would result—“Aragorn, I've already met your Mother. In fact, I've gone down on her too many times to count”. A relationship not based on love, but mutual loss and comfort, staving away loneliness, would be an added bonus. I'd also love bonding, and discussions/portrayals of mortality and immortality. What does Arwen's mother-in-law think about her? Surely they must have spent time together in Rivendell, possibly in the years before Arwen was betrothed, but after Aragorn had gone away. Did Aragorn's youthful crush result in mutual embarrassment? Or did they laugh over it? And I'd love advice, given and received, and also Elven vs. human perceptions of passing time. Arwen/Gilraen in the window of time between Aragorn going away and their betrothal would be lovely.

     

    Arwen/Goldberry

    Arwen stumbles upon a strange woman early in the Third Age, in the peacetime, maybe? Or after Aragorn's death, finding some hope and comfort in life while she waits to pass? Either way, I'd love something gentle about mortality and loss, and/or about love in all its myriad forms. A bittersweet tone would be lovely.

     

    Daughter of Arwen/Daughter of Arwen

    Incest kink! Smutty fic is more than welcome for this pairing. I'd love to see the shenanigans the daughters of Arwen get up to—what sort of adventures do they have together? How do they navigate court politics and their relationship with each other at the same time? Does anyone know about them? Do people suspect but not-quite-know?
    For art, especially I'd love it if you focused on the similarities and differences in their appearances.

     

    Celebrían/Goldberry

    A love (or lust!) story, please. Maybe young Celebrían stumbling upon a beautiful woman, and maybe something dangerous/wild? For art, I'd adore the two of them dancing in a forest.

     

    Éowyn & Morwen of Lossarnach

    Morwen is seventeen years younger than Thengel, so I'd like to think that she would have been alive some time into Aragorn's reign—did Éowyn meet her after the war? Éowyn is said to have a 'grace and pride' that came from her grandmother, so something about their similarities, maybe?

     

    Galadriel/Goldberry

    Galadriel and Goldberry are two beings so different from each other and each very powerful in their own way—what would happen if they met? I'd love to see them speaking in riddles and confusing us mere mortals, but understanding each other perfectly well! Something slightly eerie, please, something about magic and the roots of Middle-earth. Sex magic, of whatever sort you like, would be an added bonus!

     

    Goldberry/Lady of the Blue Brooch

    There are so many lovely fics for this pairing, but I still want more! For those of you who don't know, the Lady of the Blue Brooch was a woman, presumably a noble of Cardolan, and her brooch found its way into the tomb of the last prince of Cardolan. And, of course, Goldberry (and Tom) knew her. From there, I'd love whatever your take on this would be! Was she fleeing from something when she met Goldberry? Wandered away from a travelling party and got lost? How did she die? In her life, who was she? A princess? A lady? A warrior? Someone else entirely?

     

    Hild & Helm's daughter

    Helm's daughter and Hild could have died when Edoras was taken, but I like to think that they survived for some time, at least, in Dunharrow (although I'm not clear on whether that would've been probable) or in Hornburg. It would have been grim, either way, and I'd love to see something about finding hope in the midst of darkness, something bittersweet and uplifting. Or maybe happier times, Hild spending time with her niece before the Dunlendings came.

     

    Ivorwen & Gilraen

    Ivorwen's role as a seer in Dúnedain society. Politics, foresight, and their roles in Dúnedain society would be lovely, and maybe something about women in Dúnedain society. I'd love to see Gilraen and Ivorwen interacting, maybe talking, maybe working together on something—anything goes, really, as long as it features these two.

     

    Malbeth/Original Female Character(s)

    Foresight and its mixed blessings!I imagine that Malbeth would have led a dark, if not completely unhappy life, being blessed/cursed as she was with foresight so deep into the future and the knowledge of the downfall of the Dúnedain and the rise of Sauron (and his eventual defeat, but that wouldn't have been much of a comfort against the horror). And maybe, court politics and the role of seers in Dúnedain society? Whoever her lover was, unless she was a fellow Seer which would be wonderful, for 'when shall we three meet again' shenanigans, there must have been some sort of conflict or tension between them because of Malbeth's (probably eerie) visions. Or was Malbeth not-quite-believed by anyone except her lover?

     

    Mithrellas & Gilmith

    I recently dug into the dusty corners of UT which concern Mithrellas, and a fascination for this was the result. I'd love an exploration of Mithrellas' relationship with her children independent of her romantic life, but side Mithrellas/Nimrodel or Mithrellas/Imrazôr is also welcome. And what was Mithrellas like as a mother? Did she love her children or hate them, or was it more complicated?


    Mithrellas/Nimrodel

    Ah, the good old mediaeval lady/handmaiden trope (and also loyalty?). I'd like to see Mithrellas' grief and longing for her lady, maybe, but also anger at Nimrodel for tossing her aside so easily when Amroth arrived. And maybe marrying Imrazôr is her way of saying 'fuck you' for that? And maybe she realizes that isn't enough? Or is there a gradual descent into madness? Hurt feelings and anger, power dynamics—all things I want. Whether they find each other again is up to you, but if you're focusing on them finding each other, then a completely happy ending isn't my thing —bittersweet or angsty would be better.

     

    Vidumavi & Original Female Character(s), Vidumavi/Original Female Character(s)

    I'd love to see something on the culture of Rhovanion, maybe what roles and duties Vidumavi had as a Princess of Rhovanion, about her friends, and about her sisters, if she had any. Did she have a lover when she was younger or maybe was in love with one of her sisters? Or maybe cultural clashes, and Vidumavi in Gondor—how do the noblewomen there react to her? We know she assimilated pretty well into Gondor; did she make friends?
    For art, I'd love to see the traditional garb of Rhovanion.

     

     

    The Silmarillion

    Almarian/Núneth

    I'd love it if Almarian had a vested interest in getting Aldarion to marry Erendis! Maybe she and Núneth were childhood sweethearts, and Almarian regrets that she didn't take a chance with her lover, even though she loves her husband and children? I want something with nostalgia, please, and might-have-beens. Later Núneth and Almarian friendship, of course, is lovely, as are Aldarion/Erendis and Núneth/Almarian parallels.

     

    Andreth/Galadriel

    AU where Galadriel takes Aegnor's place, maybe? Or Galadriel visiting Andreth, with or without Finrod. I just want philosophical and political discussions, duty vs. love dilemmas, and maybe an unhappy ending (because I'm evil like that).

    For art, maybe that scene near Tarn Aeluin, with a star caught in Andreth's hair (only with Galadriel instead of Andreth)?

     

    Aredhel & Írimë

    I'd love Aredhel and Írimë laughing and bantering together in Valinor! Or, if you're in the mood for something darker, them during the Kinslaying (with bloodstained clothes or swords if you're an artist?). Or maybe something in Middle-earth, Aredhel saying goodbye to her aunt before leaving for Gondolin?

     

    Aredhel & Original Female Character(s)

    Aredhel bantering with her (female) friends, maybe, or trying (and failing) to navigate Gondolin and its complexities, but making a few friends along the way? Again, I'd love to see snark and banter and laughter, and mainly just Aredhel having fun! (Although angst, of course, is also much-appreciated.)

     

    Aredhel/Galadriel

    Incest kink! Aredhel and Goldberry were the only second-generation Finwions who were female, and I'd love an exploration of that. Did they like each other or despise each other and have hatesex? Maybe they hunted together, and those hunting trips turned into more? Or the two of them on the Ice, finding comfort in each other? Or maybe Aredhel was aiming to go to Doriath, not to visit Celegorm? So many possibilities!

    Or maybe Aredhel and Galadriel's mutual indifference to each other, and annoyance at being pushed together at family gatherings because they're girls, and of course they have a lot of things in common. This usually Ends Very Badly, possibly, or maybe just Aredhel and Galadriel being snarky at each other and the world in general, with bonus kissing and casual sex.

     

    Arien/Ungoliant

    An origin story for Ungoliant, maybe? We know that both Sauron and Morgoth Fell from grace, as it were, and we know how, but what about Ungoliant? What happened? What was her beginning, and what made her Dark? Was it because of her love for Arien, or despite it? Where did she gain her hunger for Light?

    Or, if they fall for each other despite being on different sides of the war, elemental forces and secret rendezvous and love that doesn't ultimately change anything? Either way, I'd love something tragic.

    Ungoliant and Arien—the Sun and a giant spider, I'd be interested to see how that works visually. Or you could have them take human raiment—that's also something I'd love to see.

     

    Elendil's wife & Tar-Míriel

    Tar-Míriel aiding and abetting the Faithful! Meeting up with Elendil all the time is risky, but an old friend of the Queen's visiting and the two of them wanting privacy to talk together won't garner much attention...(Basically, I have a huge thing for Númenorean politics. That's it. That's the prompt.)

     

    Elwing & Idril Celebrindal

    Idril's and Elwing's stay at the Havens overlap, and perhaps Elwing learns about leadership from Idril? Or, what does Idril think of Elwing's relationship with her son? Or maybe Idril telling Elwing about the glory days of Beleriand?

     

    Elwing/Original Female Character(s)

    The OFC as the wind or one of the birds, maybe, a female Maia of Manwë? I'd love something to do with the sea and birds and waves, and flight and freedom.

     

    Finduilas/Nellas/Niënor

    If you can make this work canon-'verse, that would, of course, be lovely, but I am here for all the canon divergence AUs! I want these ladies to get a happy ending—taking back their lives, taking control. I don't mind initial angst, of course, if the beginning of their relationship is what you want to create, or bittersweet endings—I just don't want complete tragedy.

     

    Fingolfin & Fingon & Aredhel & Turgon

    (And Anairë and Argon too, if you want them here.) I'm interested in the dynamics between them, all the messy family tensions and quarrels and loving each other in spite of it all. Ñoldorin politics would be lovely, if that's your thing, and all the angst and bittersweet-ness and doom and gloom, please! Whatever timeline you choose is fine, whether in Valinor, on the Helcaraxë, or in Middle-earth. (No terrible father!Fingolfin, please. Him messing up is fine, but please don't make him an out-and-out bastard.)

     

    Galadriel/Varda

    Something mystical and magical and dangerous for these two, maybe? I'm interested in how this'd work—was it a passionate romance during the Years of the Trees, or did it happen after Galadriel came back at the end of the Third Age?

    I'd love art about stars and skies, please!

     

    Ilmarë/Thuringwethil

    This ship interests me for the light vs. dark dichotomy. An origin story, perhaps, on the fall of Thuringwethil? Or maybe what happened to Thuringwethil after the War of Wrath? I'd love to see the contrast between the two of them, and maybe something to do with the Ainur and their role in the Music?

     

    Indis & Fingolfin

    What sort of relationship do Indis and Fingolfin have? Is it strained, or are they close? I'd love to see them at a difficult moment—when things are getting tense in Tirion, perhaps, or just after swords being drawn in the Court or after Fëanor's sentence has been pronounced, or even after the Darkening. (Please no completely uncaring, indifferent versions of either Indis or Fingolfin!)

     

    Indis/Nerdanel

    Indis and Nerdanel in the house of Indis after Fëanor's Exile, or later, after the Darkening and the Doom, helping each other to cope, please? I just want all the angst and Doom.

    I'd love to see Indis and Nerdanel, something passionate and intense—kissing, maybe, or even just talking to each other. Or I'd love to see Indis as the Queen of the Ñoldor (whether as Finwë's wife or in her own right in an AU)—loyalty kink, anyone?

     

    Lalaith/Niënor Níniel

    Sistercest! This would, out of necessity, have to be an AU where Lalaith doesn't die. Maybe Lalaith and Niënor sustaining each other through difficult times? Maybe instead of Túrin, Lalaith is the one who's cursed? Codependent fucked-up siblings, please! And for art (and fic), something focusing on how they're the antithesis of each other?

     

    Lindissë/Silmariën

    I'd adore a bittersweet romance with Lindissë—Silmarien marries Elatan eventually, and I'd like that to be a mutually beneficial if not completely agreeable marriage, so Silmarien and Lindissë find their way through that? Awkward threesomes, if Elatan is open-minded? An open relationship based on the same premise? Or are Lindissë and Silmariën parted? (And maybe, for any of these—or any other idea you have—Silmarien starts a long campaign to allow same-sex marriage which culminates in Tar-Telperien's marriage to her wife many generations later?)

     

    Lindórië & Inzilbêth

    I'd love to see Lindórië passing on her beliefs to her daughter—does Inzilbêth remember her mother when she's teaching her older son? I'd like an exploration of the King's Men/Faithful schism, with a dash of politics! Side Ar-Gimilzôr/Inzilbêth, with all the messiness that arises, is fine for longer fic (or more detailed art? I don't know how that'd work out for art, though), but I'd like the focus to be on Inzilbêth and Lindórië, please.
