Hello! I'm Wave, and you've found your way to my journal. I'm not very active here, and the stuff I do post is f-locked, but drop me a note and I'll be happy to add you to my flist, I'm very friendly and don't bite!  I'm also The Wavesinger on the Silmarillion Writer's Guild and [archiveofourown.org profile] The_Wavesinger on AO3 for writing, and [tumblr.com profile] the-wavesinger on Tumblr and the-wavesinger on LJ (which is similarly f-locked) for my fannish natterings.

This was originally supposed to go on Tumblr, but the formatting kept messing up, so...



Arranged according to fandom in internal chronological order.

 

Pairings and/or characters inside brackets. OCs/TGs referred to are—

  • Idhril (Lady of the Blue Brooch)

  • Elinda (Maglor's wife)

  • Araloth (Fingon's wife)

  • Istarnië (Elros' wife)

  • Niélë (Aredhel's lover)

  • Élinda (Modern times, luthier)

  • Zirân (Tar-Míriel's lover, Keeper of Gardens of the palace in Armenelos)

 

Detailed summary and warnings when you click links.

 

If a story is asterisked, I’ve written it before I got the hang of proper formatting. If it’s double asterisked, don’t read it. It’s here for archiving purposes only.

 

If something covers a long stretch, I’ve put it where it starts according to the internal chronology. If something covers the most or all of the timeline, I’ll put it near the beginning.

 

If something’s posted on multiple sites, there are links to all of them. SWG is Silmarillion Writers’ Guild, MPTT is Many Paths To Tread, AO3 is Archive of Our Own, FFn is FanFiction.Net, and LJ is LiveJournal)

It's taken me forever to get around to this, but this is just to say that I'm not going to be around on LJ anymore due to the change in TOS. I'm very sorry about any unanswered messages.

I'm still around and in fandom; I'm the_wavesinger on DW, the-wavesinger on Tumblr, and The_Wavesinger on AO3. You can also email me at thewavesinger at gmail (dot com).

(I'm crossposting this to LJ via DW in the hope that it actually works! Because nope, not going to agree to a TOS in a language I can't read, not even to say goodbye.)

EDIT: crosspost not working. Sorry :(.

Dear Yuletide Author,

It's my first year participating in this exchange, and I am ridiculously excited and all geared up and ready to go! I hope you have fun writing for me.

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. You may also want to poke through my previous exchange letters.

This letter has a list of DNWs and general likes (+ likes for darker fic and smut likes), and also fandom-specific prompts. However, please don't feel obliged to stick to my prompts—as long as you don't include my DNWs, I'm sure I'll love whatever you write (or draw, if you came here via the Wrapping Paper Challenge post!). In general, despite my long prompts and long list of likes, I'm really easy to please and my DNWs are basically the sum of things I don't like in fic. Anything else is perfectly fine!

Hello and welcome, dearest creator!

I am so, so happy we've matched and overjoyed that you're making femslash-y art or fic for me!

First, please note that if you've written/drawn a pairing for me before and I've requested it again and prompted the same thing as before, that definitely does not mean I don't like it! I just always want moarr art and fic for my pairings. Also, I would love anything from G-rated to explicit fic/art!

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. 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, the prompts I've given for relationships 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.

Hello and welcome, dearest creator!

I am so, so happy we've matched and overjoyed that you're writing/drawing for me!

This letter is basically my likes/DNWs + a list of the things I've requested; hopefully that's enough to go on. (Although, quite frankly, I am ridiculously easy to please and would love anything that's not in my DNWs.) With regard to the worldbuilding tags I've requested, you can choose to use one of them, all of them, some of them, or none of them; they're more vague guidelines than things I 100% need to see. I've requested art & fic both for everything.

Hello and welcome, dearest author!

I am so, so happy we've matched and overjoyed that you're writing for me! This letter is a strange combination of different kind of dark things, but please be assured that I love everything I've requested, from noncon to existential musings.

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 for any of the additional tags/characters/relationships I've requested equally. Also, the prompts I've given for specific dark tags 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. In addition, I've grouped some tags together for prompt-giving purposes, but I don't mind whether you use multiple tags or a single tag to base your fic on. (For fandoms where I've made multiple requests, I've given guidelines on whether or not I'd mind requests being combined in that specific fandom section.)

Dear Author )

Greetings, dearest writer!

I'm very excited about this exchange (and probably spent more time on my letter than I should have). I hope you have fun writing for me!

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.

And, of course, you can comment anonymously on this post or leave an anonymous ask on my Tumblr if you want to know more.

 

This letter is divided into three parts: general DNWs and likes, things I like about specific canons, and specific requests/prompts.
For my canon details, I've listed characters I haven't specified in the signup form as well. I've used the characters in the signup form for specific prompts for crossovers/fusions, but I definitely wouldn't mind seeing any of these characters either!
The characters and gen things are more a starting point for you to get a feel for what I like than what you must include. For characters I've specified as disliking them as the main focus of the fic, I wouldn't mind the characters in subplots and when they're interacting with the main character, just not as the focus of a fic on their own. There are also a couple of characters I've hard no'd to appearing at all, but I tried to limit the number of characters I did this to, as there are very few characters I genuinely dislike.
For pairings, I'd prefer that M/M and F/M pairings I haven't specified as liking aren't the main focus of the fic (although, again, subplots and background relationships are fine). Any kind of femslash is fine unless I've specifically asked that that F/F pairing isn't the focus of the fic. Please don't include ships I have specified as disliking. I know many of my 'ships are rarepairs, but I'd love femslash or gen for any character (and any does mean any; the 'characters I like' is just a rough guide)! Just not fics centered on het or slash ships outside what I've said I like.
For specific requests/prompts, they're more starting points than anything else; if they inspire you, go for it, but if they don't, please don't feel obliged to stick to them (especially if we matched on more than two fandoms in the same request); hopefully, I've given enough likes and canon-specific details that the prompts aren't the be-all-end-all of this letter!

And please do keep in mind that, while some of my prompts are longer than others, that's not because I want those things over others. I'd be equally happy with anything I've asked for, because sad truth is, I'm easy to please.

Dearest creator

First of all, I'm terribly sorry for the ridiculously late letter. I was sick and all sorts of unfortunate things happened, but now this is finally here, I'm so happy we've matched, and I hope you have fun writing, vidding, or drawing for me :). 

My prompts are slightly more fic-geared than vid- or 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 characters, and most of the vid things I like apply to all vids in general; I've included a separate section for general art prompts at the beginning of the letter, and another section for vids.

Dearest Trick or Treat creator,

First of all, I'm terribly sorry for the late late letter. I had an infestation of ghouls I had to deal with. Bloody annoying things, moaning at all hours of the night, making it impossible to sleep. As you can see, it got a little...out of hand. I'm so happy we've matched, and I hope you have fun writing or drawing for me :). If you're here for treating purposes, come right in ♥!

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 characters; I've included a separate section for general art prompts at the beginning of the letter. And I know that some of my prompts are longer than others, and that's because I really, really want you to write for those characters, 'kay? (In case you didn't figure it out, I'm kidding! The variations in length are 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 characters I've requested equally.) In addition, for femslash, please don't think that you have to limit yourself to the relationships I've indicated—I always love new ships, so convince me! (For non-f/f poly groups, if they're not mentioned, ask first, please.)

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

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.

This letter is like an enchanted forest you'll most likely get lost in--confusing, and liable to lead you in circles and quite possibly dangerous (I'm kidding on the last one. Most of my quite wild collection of characters are safely trapped in their own sections, don't worry ;)). There are, of course, general DNWs and general likes; in addition, I've also added sections for general trick likes and general treat likes, and fandom-specific likes for tricks and treats. There are also some art-specific prompts, and general fandom-specific likes for Tolkien and Star Wars (which both have vast canons, and where I have interests in several specific parts of the canons; it's not that I prefer them to the other fandoms I've requested; if I did, I'd have stuck to just Tolkien and Star Wars instead of asking for other fandoms, too!). And, since this is probably all very annoyingly complicated, there's a navigation section down below!

I'm sure you've ODAO'd by now, and I'm terribly sorry; this letter is very long and life's been extremely busy. I will finish this letter, but that's more of a personal thing than anything else. I'm not picky at all, and will love anything you give me! My previous exchange letters will probably expand upon my likes, if you're so inclined.

DNWs:

  • Body horror/gore/guro (and violence more than canon level).
  • Anything more than mild horror, for fic, and horror at all, for art.
  • 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.
  • Suicide/suicidal thoughts as the focus of the fic (passing mentions are fine; subplots are fine; the entire fic being about suicide isn't). Art featuring suicide is fine.
  • Crossovers/fusions between fandoms I haven't asked for.
  • (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, or AUs in which one character is suddenly older than a previously older-than-them character (ageswap?).
  • (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 the main focus of piece, please, and not as things which can be hugged/cuddled better.)
  • (Fic) Same for torture as the main focus of a fic, although I don't mind PTSD with flashbacks to torture.
  • No torture in art.


 

General Likes:

  • Angst. Drama. Politics. Tragedy.
  • Philosophical ponderings!
  • Female-centric and F/F works always have my love. You can never go wrong with this.
  • 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.
  • On soulmate AUs: I love them when it's messy and complicated (for example, one or both of them in love with someone else, soulmarks somehow blurred or removed on one person, circumstances which prevent them from getting together, one person not remembering their past lives but the other remembers), but for this trope, 'I knew the moment I saw you' is also lovely, as long as there's some angst. Also, I love timers, first/last words, names of both enemy and soulmate, and soulmarks. Red strings etc. are also fine, but please no variations of seeing color. Other soulmate things I love include in every version of every reality, in another life, fated to be separated again and again.
  • In-world mythology
  • Cultural differences and clashes that occur due to cultural differences.
  • I adore OFCs and textual ghosts, for many, many reasons. Also femslash. Did I mention femslash?
  • I'm more than fine with most side relationships, unless stated otherwise.
  • Genderbending! I always love Rule 63'd characters.
  • Stories featuring bi, pan, aro, and/or ace characters are lovely! (Aro but not ace characters I don't see at all, so extra love for that.)
  • Open relationships! Threesomes! Moresomes! (Non-explicit) orgies!
  • Transgender characters would be amazing, as would non-binary characters and just genderfuckery 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.
  • 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 love characters with flaws and unpleasant qualities! Awesome ladies can be awesome and flawed :).
  • Characters teasing and bantering with each other.
  • Iddy whump fic! (In general, bittersweet fics with lots of hurt (and not necessary comfort) and doom and gloom and/or politics and drama and plot hit my id very hard)
  • 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.


 

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:
  • Charactes 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!).


 

Tolkien-specific likes:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Greetings, dearest creator!



First of all, I'm terribly sorry that this letter is so late, and I understand perfectly if you've decided to ODAO. That being said, I'm so happy we've matched, and I hope you have fun writing or drawing for me :). My prompts are slightly more fic-geared than art-geared (although most of them are hopefully general enough to apply to both), because I like a lot of the same thing across multiple groupings; I've included a separate section for general art prompts at the beginning of the letter. 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 groups I've offered equally.



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.

My bingo cards for the SWG/silmladylove Tolkien Femslash Week! I may or may not have gone a little overboard.

I'm tentative about the art and format cards--I'm new to digital art, but am determined to put my shiny new graphics tablet to use, and I have't tried most of the formats, so that'll be interesting. I'm also determined to go through the review/rec card and review and rec as many fics as possible, whether or not they count towards my bingo--and hopefully fics which I've never read before!
