Dear Trick or Treater,

Yesss, it's Trick or Treat time! And thank you for offering one or more of my favorite characters! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Feel free to adapt one of my prompts, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration. I'm in this for fanworks about my faves! The prompts are just there in case you like prompts, and they don't necessarily cover the full scope of my interests.

(Similarly, the ships I've listed for each character are optional.)

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod. I've also requested all of these fandoms except One Punch Man before -- if you feel like browsing my past letters, they're all tagged.

Happy Halloween,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I've requested both fic and art for all of my characters, and for both media I'm happy with any rating from General Audience to Explicit. I'm primarily a slash fan and I've listed a few preferred ships per character... but each of these characters is one of my faves in their own right, and I'd really love to get something fave-centric :D

For fic:

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'm seriously good with anything, from 300 words on up. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it worked in. I also prefer emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

If you want to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be my requested characters in this exchange!) (Note that I'm good either way for Choicest, AkuAtsu, and LeoLicht :D) My Smut Swap letters are still relevant, if you want tables and tables of my favorite kinks.

For art:

I like all sorts of mediums. I'm interested in purposeful color schemes, which could be vibrant or restrained or even stark black and white -- something that fits your vision for the request. I like dynamic pieces, but also captured moments of stillness. I like emotion, tension, connection, hurt, and tenderness. I prefer identifiable figures instead of abstract pieces.

As a general prompt: I would love to see any of my ships reimagined as tarot cards. Either representing a specific existing card, or just in a symbolic card-like design.

If you can work in some hurt/comfort elements here too, I'm not going to complain.

Note -- I love art, but I'm not an artist myself. Please feel welcome to contact me through the mod if you need me to give more or different information :)

Request 1: Ao no Exorcist

Okumura Rin

I recently reread/caught up with this manga, and Rin <3 <3

I love his smile. I love his identity struggles – adjusting to his physical transformations, finding his place in his family, finding his place among his friends, finding his place among humans and demons and exorcists. He can be insecure and vulnerable, but he’s also always ready to stand up for others. He’s sincere and enthusiastic, and those characteristics lend themselves equally well to fluff and angst.

Ships: Bon/Rin, Yukio/Rin, Lewin/Rin, Lucifer/Rin, Angel/Rin, Shima/Rin

Note: I'm caught up with the manga, original anime, and Kyoto anime!

  • Prompt 1: Rin’s friends are in trouble. To save them, he has to participate in some sort of demonic ritual. Can be “fuck or die” sex with another ex-wire or exorcist; being forced to submit to Amaimon or Satan or another demon; or something dangerous/spooky but not sexual.
  • Prompt 2: Caretaking! Rin making sure Yukio gets to sleep on time instead of studying all night; someone stopping Rin from overworking himself during training; Rin noticing one of his friends got hurt and protecting him during battle; I’d love to see anything with Rin taking care of someone else or being taken care of.
  • Prompt 3: Something sweet and cuddly with Kuro.
  • Prompt 4: Festival-themed fic or art always makes me super happy. Rin being enthusiastic about party games or dressing up is A++.
  • Prompt 5: On a similar note, enthusiastic tourist Rin is always love.
  • Prompt 6: The Vatican decides Mephisto is supervising Rin well enough, so he's put in Lewin or Angel's custody instead.

Request 2: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Link

Apparently if someone says "by the way, sharks have two dicks," I will reflexively pull out my wallet. Luckily, I am having so much fun with this game above and beyond the shark dicks -- it's so beautiful! I love flying and cooking and taming horses and playing dress-up with Link.

Link is brave and adorable, and of course I want both wonderful and terrible things to happen to him. I'm cool with him either speaking or not in the fic!

For Sidon/Link smut, I strongly prefer that Sidon have two dicks. I am equally happy without smut, though, and also with other ships, and also with no ships at all, in which case you wouldn't have to specify Sidon's dick situation in any way.

Ships: Sidon/Link, OMC(s)/Link, Random Male NPC(s)/Link, Monster(s)/Link, Yiga(s)/Link

Note: I'm not quite done with the game as of letter-writing -- I keep getting distracted with cooking and dress-up -- but I will be done by reveals!

  • Prompt 1: Have fun with the weather! Link shivering in the cold or panting in the heat are both great options.
  • Prompt 2: Swimming and diving with Sidon! Maybe Sidon's teaching him how to swim properly with his cool new Zora armor. And then maybe fucking on the rocks beneath Zora's Domain.
  • Prompt 3: Sidon or an OMC spots some mysterious sheer silky fabric in Link's stuff, and pulls out his Gerudo outfit. Then he persuades Link to put it on and show off for him. (how long it stays on is up to you...)
  • Prompt 4: Link meets another traveler or several at a campfire; they all spend the night, maybe drink a little, maybe flirt a little, maybe they should cuddle close for warmth...
  • Prompt 5: Fucking Yigas hideout. I died so many times on that quest. It would have been more fun if, instead of killing Link, they took him captive and gangbanged him, right??
  • Prompt 6: Monster prompt: Link loses a fight against a Lynel, Hinox, or Moblins, and instead of killing him, they fuck him. Bonus for cum inflation and crying.
  • Prompt 7: Sex pollen! Maybe Link discovers a new magical pond or field of magic flowers or something. Who else is there is up to you.
  • Prompt 8: Original Male Character(s)/Link -- I'm open to a lot of options here! Random one-night stand, seducing his way out of a bad situation, working together with someone for one quest or longer. Taking shelter with a nice, burly blacksmith on a rainy night. Gang-banged by mercenaries.
  • Prompt 9: Art-wise, the Gerudo, Zora, ninja, and rubber outfits are my favorites!

Request 3: Bungou Stray Dogs

Nakahara Chuuya
Akutagawa Ryuunosuke
Nakajima Atsushi

The character designs are what first drew me in, but the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked.

Chuuya's so much fun. I like fic that keeps his edge, even when indulging in the fantastic whump potential of Corruption. I like him and Dazai being assholes to each other, but coming through when it really, really counts. I'm also a sucker for ridiculous!drunk!Chuuya.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

Ships: Dazai/Chuuya, Dazai/Atsushi, Dazai/Akutagawa, Dazai/Akutagawa/Atsushi, Akutagawa/Atsushi

Note: I'm caught up with both the anime and manga!

  • Prompt 1: Anyone getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance, erotica... Basically, it's an in-canon excuse for an AU, which works for me when pure AUs don't.
  • Prompt 2: Any ship would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Bondage, maybe? ;) Seriously any character, consensual or dubcon or noncon, sexual or nonsexual, before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars...
  • Prompt 4: Dazai's completely moved on from the mafia, and he definitely doesn't want anything to do with Chuuya. But when he hears Chuuya has a new partner -- that's not acceptable.
  • Prompt 5: It's a bit of a cliche, but that's because it's amazing -- art with other characters hanging out with/cuddling with tiger!Atsushi.
  • Prompt 7: Dressing up for an Agency (or Mafia!!) Halloween party :D Could work for fic too.

Request 4: Final Fantasy XV

Noctis Lucis Caelum

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

I adore Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

If you would like to include my chocobo OC, that would utterly delight me. In my game, Noct has a white chocobo, and her name is Nebula, which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Ships: Gladio/Noct, Ignis/Noct, Gladio/Ignis/Prompto/Noct, Ardyn/Noct, Ravus/Noct, Ardyn/Ravus/Noct, Nyx/Noct

Note: Noctis shouldn't die; if doing something shippy, the other character(s) in the ship shouldn't die either.

  • Prompt 1: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me for Gladio/Noct! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.
  • Prompt 2: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 3: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender with Gladio or Ignis, or they fuck in a gondola, or things get a lil wild at the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. ("if I beat you at Chocobo racing you have to do whatever I say tonight" y/y??) Or Ravus takes the opportunity to "negotiate" with Noctis. Ardyn can come along too if he wants.
  • Prompt 4: Noct and another character get separated from the other chocobros out in the wilderness (without phones? idk), and have to trek across the countryside to get to civilization (and phones) in order to reunite.
  • Prompt 5: Canon divergence -- either from the signing of the treaty or another point -- Noct ends up as an honored guest/hostage at Niflheim's court. Cue decadent banquets, unwanted attention, and giving in to distraction. Ardyn being his creepy self. For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)
  • Prompt 6: Oh no, Luna's gone missing. Noctis will just have to marry Ravus instead.
  • Prompt 7: Ardyn decides he wants to rule the world, but he doesn't want to rule alone.
  • Prompt 8: Anything about the new Assassin's Festival DLC!!! Noct's enthusiasm is the cutest ever. And art of him in the outfits would be A++.

Request X: Loveless

Aoyagi Ritsuka

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 14 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

My favorite part about Ritsuka is probably his fierceness and his determination, even when he's lost and scared. He's been through a lot, and there's never an easy path forward -- but even though it's not easy, he can find a path.

Ships: Soubi/Ritsuka, Seimei/Ritsuka, Seimei/Soubi/Ritsuka, Nisei/Ritsuka, Seimei/Nisei/Ritsuka, Seimei/Nisei/Soubi/Ritsuka, Nisei/Soubi/Ritsuka, Ritsu/Soubi/Ritsuka

Note: I'm caught up with the manga! Have not watched the anime.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Could also work for bad-wrong hurt/comfort with another ship.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)?
  • Prompt 3: Something a little more lighthearted! Celebrating a holiday or birthday or other special event. Dressing up, making memories, showing affection, getting flustered. Possibly a tinge of sadness that some people aren't there to celebrate.
  • Prompt 4: Seimei gets caught, and held prisoner. Maybe at the academy, and Ritsuka visits. Maybe he's put under magic house arrest, so he's back living at home, and Ritsuka (and possibly Soubi) have to try acting like things are normal but they aren't.
  • Prompt 5: Art-wise, there's a lot of room for great imagery in the battle system! With all the magic & bondage going around.

back to top ^^

Request 6: Mystic Messenger

Seven

I love the texting and bantering and bickering and the wacky party guests and the rare potato chips. And I love, love, love Seven.

I love how intense and hypercompetent and dysfunctional he is. Top-secret super spy who can't feed himself is apparently one of my bullet proof tropes. I like both his cheerful exterior and the darker emotions running underneath.

I've finished the five main routes. Haven't played any of the post-ending extras, but don't worry about spoiling anything. I'm really down for whichever route you want to follow if you write canon-era fic. You're also welcome to mix and match events from different routes.

If you're writing canon-era or post-canon fic and want to include the MC, I'm open to any name and appearance for her. (Names I played with, if you want to use them: Shadow, Katja, Daria, Liannan, and Karma.) Depending on what you're writing, I like her ending up with Jaehee or Zen. (or nobody works too!)

Ships: Seven/Saeran, Jumin/Seven, Zen/Seven, V/Seven, V/Jumin/Seven, Jumin/Zen/Seven, V/Zen/Seven

Notes: For V/Seven, please don't set the fic while he's still together with Rika.

  • Prompt 1: Someone, anyone, is wearing cat ears.
  • Prompt 2: Something along the lines of Jumin's canon route, except he's getting neurotically possessive/over-protective over Seven instead of the MC.
  • Prompt 3: V wants Seven to pose for a sensual, romantic photo shoot. Clothes optional, depending on what you want to write!
  • Prompt 4: Something unexpected happens between one of the ships at one of the RFA parties! Could be a hook-up, could be a surprise kiss, could be a drunken confession? Either a pre-canon party, or the Day 11 party at the end of the game? Could be fumbling in a dark corner, or embarrassingly public?
  • Prompt 5: Jumin needs a guest for a fancy business event. Or Zen needs a guest for a fancy theater event. They ask Seven. Neither of them is sure if it's a date, but they really really want it to be.
  • Prompt 6: Have fun with the chatroom and messaging format! Flirting over text, sending each other photos, sexting, etc. (Bonus if it's a prelude to meeting up in person after a day or week or so of driving each other crazy) (with Saeran in particular I could see it starting out as taunting and then getting more flirty...)
  • Prompt 7: Seven and Saeran end up on the run together after the events of the game -- possibly one holding the other captive? or working together -- and struggling through memories and feelings, and being just generally possessive and desperate.
  • Prompt 8: Mission gone awry, sex pollen style: Seven gets dosed with an aphrodisiac by a *handwave* shady villain. Other character in the ship is stuck dealing with him ;) Or another character does, and Seven has to take care of them ;)

back to top ^^

Request 7: Naruto

Gaara

So apparently I didn't skip my Naruto phase. I just delayed it. We can blame the Crunchyroll free trial I forgot to cancel. I had to make the most of my accidental subcription somehow.

Gaara is my absolute favorite. I adore him, murderously poor coping skills and all. I like fic that taps into vulnerabilities without handwaving the whole ruthless child murderer backstory thing. Explore how far he's grown emotionally, and how far he still has to go.

Ships: Kakashi/Gaara, Kankurou/Gaara, Naruto/Gaara

Note: I will have gotten through at least Shippuden episode 300 by reveals, and I prefer no spoilers for future events. Incorporating backstory/character development information that's revealed later in the anime/manga is fine, but not "what happens next in the narrative present." If that doesn't make sense, or if you have any questions about my Naruto preferences/knowledge/etc, you can ask mornelithe_falconsbane for help. They know everything.

  • Prompt 1: Someone is trying to assassinate Gaara! So the assassins must be stopped. And Gaara has to be protected, even though he'd rather just deal with them on his own -- people are sensitive about that after he's already been kidnapped and murdered once. Feel free to take this into political intrigue or action, or just focus on the iddy hurt/comfort and bodyguarding elements. (Or all of it. All of it is good.)
  • Prompt 2: Anything dealing with Gaara adjusting to life post-Shukaku would make me very happy. Figuring out what elements of him were the demon's influence, and what was him all along. Any physical differences in stamina or sensation. Actually sleeping. Dealing with feelings and connections when he's used to isolation.
  • Prompt 3: Any sex pollen/aphrodisiac scenario you can think of, I'm there. Enemy jutsu has everyone horny? Someone spiked the punch at the diplomatic banquet? Gaara has a collection of succulents and one of them has Special Properties? The wildlife just gets weird sometimes? Bonus points if Gaara loses his virginity in the most overwhelming way possible.
  • Prompt 4: Visual things I particularly like, though they could be adapted to fic too: Rituals, drawing seals on each other, getting the elements involved, shadow clones.
  • Prompt 5: Orochimaru captures Gaara for his famous Totally For Science analysis and experiments...
  • Prompt 6: The snowy environment outside the kage meeting had me thinking... Desert kid Gaara not used to this weather at all, and when there's a mysterious blizzard that tragically separates him from most of his party, it only makes sense to hole up in a conveniently tiny shack with one other person...
  • Prompt 7: Kakashi/Gaara exploring the "Gaara doesn't know how to react to authority figures who don't want to kill him" vibe per their interactions in Shippuden Episode 182! (And during the kage meeting he describes Kakashi as someone he trusts!!!!! basically I did not expect to actually get ship fodder for this ship)

back to top ^^

Request 8: One Punch Man

Speed-of-Sound Sonic

Let's be real. I would have watched OPM ages ago if any of the advertising materials I saw included Sonic. He's perfectly my type, and completely ridiculous, and I love him.

I'm totally down for solo fic/art, or gen - something in line with the show's humor, or something tapping beneath the surface into Sonic's more vulnerable side. For shippy stuff - with Saitama and/or Genos, I'm down for rough, angry interactions, but if you want to sell me on a romance I'll be there too.

With random male villains, heroes, and ninja trainers, I mostly want gangbangs and badwrong.

Ships: Saitama/Sonic, Genos/Sonic, Saitama/Genos/Sonic, Random Male Villain(s)/Sonic, Random Male Hero(es)/Sonic, Random Male Ninja Trainer(s)/Sonic

Note: I'm caught up with the anime! Have not read the manga; don't worry about spoilers.

  • Prompt 1: Backstory fic/art of Sonic learning ninjutsu! With or without mentorly badtouching.
  • Prompt 2: During a bodyguarding job, Sonic gets hit with a powerful aphrodisiac drug.
  • Prompt 3: The annual Halloween party is the perfect time to sneak into the Hero Association, since everyone's in costumes anyway. Unfortunately, he gets recognized...
  • Prompt 4: Always down for "enemy of my enemy" reluctant team-ups. Especially if hurt/comfort is involved.
  • Prompt 5: Sonic is captured and given a choice: execution, or forced bonding marriage. Sonic agrees to the marriage, on the condition his spouse is Saitama.
  • Prompt 6: Really really into catboy!Sonic and/or A/B/O! Whether it's an established part of the worldbuilding or whether Sonic got dosed with like, catboy serum or something.

back to top ^^

Request 9: Raven Cycle

Noah Czerny

That awkward moment when you realize your favorite character has been dead the whole time.... haha. That's okay! We can get through this! Death is no obstacle to shipping ;)

I'm late to the party here -- I only read the books last year. Which coincided with my tarot interest, so it was a delightful bonus to find all of that worked into the story. I'd particularly love tarot-inspired art for this fandom.

I'm very interested in how Noah differs between life and death, how his personality changes depending on how he's doing. Seeing him open up to his friends is great, as well as touches/hugs as a way of connecting to the living...

Ships: Ronan/Noah, Gansey/Noah, Adam/Noah, Gansey/Ronan/Noah, Adam/Ronan/Noah, Gansey/Adam/Ronan/Noah, Kavinsky/Noah, Niall/Noah

Note: For Noah/Gansey, just make Blue and Gansey platonic in that universe :)

  • Prompt 1: There's a lot that Noah didn't get around to doing while he's alive. His more-than-just-a-friend/boyfriend/fuck-buddy helps him check things off the list anyway.
  • Prompt 2: Some sort of magical ritual to bring Noah back to life. Lots of options: true love's kiss is a classic. Or sex magic. (true love's dick?) To go to a darker place, maybe Ronan or Adam is desperately driven enough to kill one of the villains in exchange for Noah.
  • Prompt 2.5: Just one sex ritual isn't enough! Per this subthread on FFA.
  • Prompt 3: I guess this is less a completely separate prompt and more a follow-up to the previous, but -- something focusing on, if Noah's brought back, how he copes with it. What's it like to breathe and sleep and live again? To really touch people? Does he worry that they won't like the real-live-Noah as much as the dead Noah they got to know?
  • Prompt 4: Creepy or beautiful or creepy-beautiful Cabeswater stuff is always very nice. And dreams! Noah being able to enter dreams would be very cool.

back to top ^^

Request 10: The Royal Tutor

Licht von Granzreich
Leonhard von Granzreich

I watched this very quickly, and fell very quickly in love. The princes are all so sweet and ridiculous, but there's also a lot of darkness and intrigue going on with the underlying politics.

Leonhard and Licht are my faves. I love Leonhard's enthusiasm and naivete, as well as his tsundere attitude. Licht's flirty playboy attitude is kind of hilarious, but I also really enjoy him making real connections with people -- the care he puts into his cafe job is precious <3

...also, completely unrelated side note. For the majority of the anime, I was convinced that Heine's secret past was that he was a demon. Clearly that turned out not to be the case, but if you want to incorporate some witchcraft or demonic happenings in the worldbuilding, that would be fine with me, and perfect for spooky fic or art :)

Ships: Licht/Leo, Kai/Leo, Kai/Licht, Bruno/Leo, Bruno/Licht, Eins/Leo, Eins/Licht, Eins/Rosenberg/Leo, Eins/Rosenberg/Licht, Rosenberg/Leo, Rosenberg/Licht

Note: I've finished the anime! Have not read the manga; don't worry about spoilers.

  • Prompt 1: Bruno's tutoring Licht or Leonhard; they have other ideas about how to spend the time alone.
  • Prompt 2: Someone threatens or injures Leonhard or Licht, triggering Kai's protective instincts.
  • Prompt 3: Leonhard or Licht spends a few months visiting Eins at Schwarz Palace.
  • Prompt 4: One or more of the brothers has a little too much to drink at a palance banquet or town festival-- drunken confessions and make-outs and general bad decisions ensue. Masquerade or costume party always a plus. (costumed art, y/y?)
  • Prompt 5: One of the brothers is having a rough day, so Licht drags them off for a fun night around town.
  • Prompt 6: Licht sneaks into a fancy club or seedy bar, and runs into Count Rosenberg -- who drags him off to Eins for a talking-to, or something more ;)
  • Prompt 7: A diplomatic visit abroad goes awry. Oh, no! They're injured and trapped in a remote cave or cottage. Whatever shall they do.
  • Prompt 8: I'm particularly into praise kink for Leonhard, since he's so insecure in canon.
  • Prompt 9: Someone gets dosed with sex pollen, accidentally or maliciously. Better take care of that in private, wouldn't want anyone else to know...
  • Prompt 10: One brother has nightmares, and crawls into bed with another for comfort.

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite incest ships! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use or adapt one of my prompts, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration. I'm in this for fic about my faves -- the prompts are there to help if you want them!

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I can go angsty or sweet or dubcon or desperate or angsty-sweet-dubcon-desperate with my incest ships :D I like co-dependency. I like "we're the only ones who understand each other." I like "how can this be wrong when it feels so right." I also enjoy dubcon or noncon incest, and one character using it as a way to manipulate their relative.

One thing I don't like is the incest being a complete non-issue. I like it as a source of conflict and tension, or something they need to keep secret, whether or not they're ashamed of it.

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'm seriously good with anything. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be Ritsuka, Catboys, Leo, Licht, Rin, and Yuri.) (I'm good either way for Choicest and Leo/Licht! They're co-faves :D) My Smut Swap letters are still relevant, if you want tables and tables of my favorite kinks.

Yes, Please!

  • Age differences
  • Bondage, blindfolds
  • Brave, silent suffering until another character realizes something’s wrong
  • Canon divergence AUs
  • Corsets
  • Cum inflation
  • Dubcon, manipulation, complicated feelings
  • Emotional and/or physical hurt/comfort
  • Hand-holding, casual touches, tenderness
  • Happy or ambiguous endings
  • Huddling for warmth, locked in a closet, enforced proximity scenarios

Request 1: Loveless

  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei
  • Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 14 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

Seimei/Ritsuka goes pretty dark into dubcon territory at least. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

In a situation with the three of them -- Seimei is very cold, but he does treat Ritsuka as exceptional. And he's happy to use Soubi and Ritsuka against each other. I'd be very down for situations where Soubi and Ritsuka are trying to protect each other, in ways that end up getting themselves hurt more. And for them both still caring for Seimei despite everything, in a fucked-up way.

  • Prompt 1: Something focusing on the spell battles, and their aftermath. Maybe it dredges up some painful memories, maybe there's physical damage, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Maybe Seimei does some dream/vision shenanigans where he mindfucks Ritsuka.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)?
  • Prompt 3: Seimei gets caught, and held prisoner. Maybe at the academy, and Ritsuka visits. Maybe he's put under magic house arrest, so he's back living at home, and Ritsuka (and possibly Soubi) have to try acting like things are normal but they aren't.

Request 5: Mystic Messenger

  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Saeran Choi

I love the texting and bantering and bickering and the wacky party guests and the rare potato chips. And as is my usual visual novel style, I've ended up shipping the love interests with each other more than with the main character.

Seven and Saeran hit all my dysfunctional twincest buttons. There's so much tangled up between them, and cutting through it will be painful, but worth it if they can get to the core feelings. I like the intensity and the rough edges, and don't want things to get too sweet too quickly. But the mutual obsession/protective impulses are A++.

I've finished the five main routes. Haven't played any of the post-ending extras, but don't worry about spoiling anything. I'm really down for whichever route you want to follow if you write canon-era fic. You're also welcome to mix and match events from different routes -- for example, if you have Elizabeth go missing and Zen gets slandered by Echo Girl, while MC hooks up with Jaehee in the background. Follow your inspiration and do whatever works best for your story :D

Notes: If you're writing canon-era or post-canon fic and want to include the MC, I'm open to any name and appearance for her. I like her ending up with Jaehee or Zen. (or nobody works too!)

  • Prompt 1: Someone, anyone, is wearing cat ears.
  • Prompt 2: Saeran somehow ends up at one of the RFA parties, romantic shenanigans ensue. Could be a hook-up, could be a surprise kiss, could be a drunken confession? Either a pre-canon party, or the Day 11 party at the end of the game? Could be fumbling in a dark corner, or embarrassingly public? Dealer's choice ;)
  • Prompt 3: Have fun with the chatroom and messaging format! Flirting over text, sending each other photos, sexting, etc. (Bonus if it's a prelude to meeting up in person after a day or week or so of driving each other crazy) (with Saeran I could see it starting out as taunting and then getting more flirty...)
  • Prompt 4: Seven and Saeran end up on the run together after the events of the game -- possibly one holding the other captive? or working together -- and struggling through memories and feelings, and being just generally possessive and desperate.
  • Prompt 5: Mission gone awry, sex pollen style: Seven gets dosed with an aphrodisiac by a *handwave* shady villain. Saeran is stuck dealing with him ;) Or Saeran does, and Seven has to take care of them ;)

Request 3: Naruto

  • Kankurou/Gaara

So apparently I didn't skip my Naruto phase. I just delayed it. We can blame the Crunchyroll free trial I forgot to cancel. I had to make the most of my accidental subcription somehow.

The melodrama and tragedy and humor and character designs and child soldiers and intense weird relationships of various flavors and 500 onsen episodes all really work for me.

As does Gaara. Lol. I adore him, murderously poor coping skills and all. I like fic that taps into vulnerabilities without handwaving the whole ruthless child murderer backstory thing. Explore how far he's grown emotionally, and how far he still has to go.

I started hardcore shipping Kankurou/Gaara during the saving-Gaara arc. Kankurou was just so intense about going after him -- and standing up for him when the rest of the council didn't want to rescue him. I liked the bits we got about Kankurou clearing out potential threats when Gaara became Kazekage. He and Temari both became Gaara's staunchest supporters, after being basically on "try not to let him murder people" duty when we first met them. I want to see that reliance and affection taken to the next level.

Note: I will have gotten through at least Shippuden episode 200 by reveals. And don't kill me, but I'd prefer no spoilers for future events. Incorporating information about backstories that's revealed later in the anime/manga is fine, but not "what happens next in the narrative present." I hope that makes sense. If it doesn't make sense, or if you have any questions about my Naruto preferences/knowledge/etc, you can ask mornelithe_falconsbane for help. They know everything.

  • Prompt 1: Someone is trying to assassinate Gaara! So the assassins must be stopped. And Gaara has to be protected, even though he'd rather just deal with them on his own -- people are sensitive about that after he's already been kidnapped and murdered once. Feel free to take this into political intrigue or action, or just focus on the iddy hurt/comfort and bodyguarding elements. (Or all of it. All of it is good.)
  • Prompt 2: Anything dealing with Gaara adjusting to life post-Shukaku would make me very, very happy. Figuring out what elements of him were the demon's influence, and what was him all along. Any physical differences in stamina or sensation. Actually sleeping. Dealing with feelings and connections when he's used to isolation.
  • Prompt 3: Any sex pollen/aphrodisiac scenario you can think of, I'm there. Enemy jutsu has everyone horny? Someone spiked the punch at the diplomatic banquet? Gaara has a collection of succulents and one of them has Special Properties? The wildlife just gets weird sometimes? Bonus points if Gaara loses his virginity in the most overwhelming way possible.

Request 4: Original Work

  • Catboy Brother/Human Brother
  • Catboy Twin Brother/Catboy Twin Brother/Unrelated Male Human
  • Twin Brother/Twin Brother/Catboy
  • Dark Lord Older Brother/Enslaved Catboy Younger Brother
  • Older Male Human Aristocrat Cousin/Younger Catboy Cousin He's Arranged to Marry

This is the first time I've nominated original work ships! I had fun with it. Catboy incest! What's not to love? :D

I like a wide variety of catboy-compliant worldbuilding set-ups. Could be modern-day except catboys, historical except catboys, sci-fi, fantasy. A/B/O could fit in too.

Particular things I like in catboy fic: expressive ears and tails, ear-scritching, purring, hissing, going into heat, collars, cuddling, naps.

Catboy Brother/Human Brother
Why is one a catboy and one a human? Up to you! I'm okay with them being half-brothers, or adopted, or catpeople-ness is a recessive gene, or the catboy brother used to be human but was transformed by a magic spell. Feel free to mix in other tropes/character types too! Assassins, ninjas, royalty, sexy librarian catboy, etc.

Catboy Twin Brother/Catboy Twin Brother/Unrelated Male Human
Identical or fraternal catboy twins are both fine! I prefer the catboy twins to be romantically/sexually into each other, rather than a situation where they're not attracted but the third character is forcing them to fuck. I'm down for poly dating scenarios, brothers working as high class twin catboy courtesans, male human purchasing twin catboy slaves, male human rescuing brainwashed twin catboy sex slaves. This is one ship where I'd be okay with the incest being normalized for the catboys' culture but not the human's, too.

Twin Brother/Twin Brother/Catboy
The twin brothers don't necessarily have to be human! Elves, fae folk, demons, vampires, dragon shifters, werewolves are all welcome as well. I like the concept of both twins trying to woo the catboy, and the catboy being into both of them, and to make the triangle messier the brothers are repressing feelings for each other too, and then they all kiss :D Darker stuff works too, as usual.

Dark Lord Older Brother/Enslaved Catboy Younger Brother
What it says on the tin, pretty much! I envision this in a fantasy setting -- dark wizardry or unseelie court or something. I enjoy a dark possessiveness here, and "only I can touch you" feelings. The younger brother having super complicated feelings about his older brother is A+++ too.

Older Male Human Aristocrat Cousin/Younger Catboy Cousin He's Arranged to Marry
Hopefully the tag is pretty clear! I'm down for larger or smaller age gaps here, and all sorts of justifications for the arranged marriage. Presumably to cement some negotiation, but a glorified hostage situation would also be excellent. I would rather the catboy be coming to move in with the older cousin's people. Each character's willingness/reluctance in the situation is up to you -- as is how well they knew each other before the arrangement. Could be interesting to have cousincest more normalized among one culture than the other -- conflict there with one character not wanting to fuck his cousin, the other worried about repulsing him...

  • Prompt 1: I mentioned this above, but "other character(s) rescues brainwashed catboy sex slave(s)" is a scenario that really works for my id :D ...especially if catboy sex slave(s) go into heat and the rescuer tries to resist but ends up having no choice but to fuck them... alll the badwrong guilt :D
  • Prompt 2: Obdedience compulsions that the other character(s) may or may not be aware of as they intentionally or accidentally trigger the compulsions.
  • Prompt 3: Drugs, alcohol, sex pollen, magic bringing repressed feelings to the forefront is always A+.
  • Prompt 4: Cuddling and lazing about in bed or out in the garden or on a balcony, just something playful and relaxed. Which could stay sweet, or be paired with some hurt/comfort, or have super messed up dubcon cuddling power dynamics.

back to top ^^

Request 5: The Royal Tutor

  • Leonhard/Licht
  • Bruno/Leonhard
  • Bruno/Licht
  • Kai/Leonhard
  • Kai/Licht
  • Eins/Leonhard
  • Eins/Licht
  • Eins/Leonhard/Rosenberg
  • Eins/Licht/Rosenberg

I watched this very quickly, and fell very quickly in love. The princes are all so sweet and ridiculous, but there's also a lot of darkness and intrigue going on with the underlying politics. With their father distant and a parade of tutors coming in and out, the four younger princes have formed a very close, dependent bond, despite the occasional conflict. I'm very interested in that closeness sliding into less wholesome feelings for each other :D

Leonhard and Licht are my faves. I love Leonhard's enthusiasm and naivete, as well as his tsundere attitude. Licht's flirty playboy attitude is kind of hilarious, but I also really enjoy him making real connections with people -- the care he puts into his cafe job is precious <3

I've only watched the anime, so I don't know if Eins gets more development in the manga -- but in the anime, he's a very mysterious figure. I spent pretty much the entire show telling my sister, "I wonder when the oldest brother shows up! Where is the oldest brother? When do we meet him..." And then he shows up very briefly, but he's tall and hot and clearly has plans in motion that he doesn't need Rosenberg's interference for (basically calls him to heel, lol) -- so I'm sold :D

I see any of the Eins ships getting into darker, more manipulative territory -- maybe Eins is trying to secure one of his brothers' loyalty. Or there's just a badwrong attraction he chooses not to suppress. I'd also be down for established Eins/Rosenberg secret lovers or fuckbuddies letting one of the younger brothers in on the action.

...also, completely unrelated side note. For the majority of the anime, I was convinced that Heine's secret past was that he was a demon. Clearly that turned out not to be the case, but if you want to incorporate some witchcraft or demonic happenings in the worldbuilding, that would be fine with me :) ...makes things like "sex pollen" and "magically bound together" a bit easier to finagle, should you want :D

  • Prompt 1: Bruno's tutoring Licht or Leonhard; they have other ideas about how to spend the time alone ;)
  • Prompt 2: Someone threatens or injures Leonhard or Licht, triggering Kai's protective instincts.
  • Prompt 3: Leonhard or Licht spends a few months visiting Eins at Schwarz Palace.
  • Prompt 4: One or more of the brothers has a little too much to drink at a palance banquet or town festival-- drunken confessions and make-outs and general bad decisions ensue.
  • Prompt 5: One of the brothers is having a rough day, so Licht drags them off for a fun night around town.
  • Prompt 6: Licht sneaks into a fancy club or seedy bar, and runs into Count Rosenberg -- who drags him off to Eins for a talking-to, or something more ;)
  • Prompt 7: A diplomatic visit abroad goes awry. Oh, no! They're injured and trapped in a remote cave or cottage. Whatever shall they do.
  • Prompt 8: I'm particularly into praise kink for Leonhard, since he's so insecure in canon.
  • Prompt 9: Someone gets dosed with sex pollen, accidentally or maliciously. Better take care of that in private, wouldn't want anyone else to know...
  • Prompt 10: One brother has nightmares, and crawls into bed with another for comfort.

Request 6: Togainu no Chi

  • Shiki/Rin

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 7: Yuri!!! on Ice

  • JJ/JJ/Yuri
  • Victor/Victor/Yuri
  • Victor/Teen Victor/Christophe

I usually DNW setting-change AUs, but for these ships, you can, of course, push the setting boundaries with sci-fi and fantasy justifications. As long as the characters are all still skaters, I'm happy (with one exception AU, which I've prompted below!). Whether random doubles or tentacle monsters are something impossible and shocking or plausible (and still shocking? :P) in that setting is up to you.

I don't want clones who were cloned as embryos and raised as separate people in the same world -- that's basically just twins. So, time travel shenanigans, accidentally crossed over from an alternate dimension, or science-magically duplicated in the present are all great options. If one of them is an evil clone/dark shadow self thing, that could be fun to play with as well.

Since this is Relationshipping, I want to emphasize that I'm just as interested in the doubles' relationships with each other, as well as with Yuri. I like knowing how each leg of the triangle works, as well as how the whole thing works. (or doesn't work)

My RSOI letter has more about my views on Victor/Yuri and JJ/Yuri as pairs, if the info helps you for the threesomes :)

Note: For JJ/JJ/Yuri, please handwave and pretend neither JJ is dating Isabella. For Victor/Victor/Yuri, I'd also rather have an AU where Victor/Yuuri just never happened -- I don't want them to have been together and then broken up or anything. One or both Victors can still coach Yuuri, of course :) For Victor/Teen Victor/Christophe, I'd similarly prefer neither Victor is dating Yuuri -- and don't want Christophe together with his canon maybe-boyfriend.

Jean-Jacques Leroy/Jean-Jacques Leroy/Yuri Plisetsky:
And Yuri thought one JJ was bad enough :D I see this as double the trouble, and JJ being constantly unsure whether he should be competing with himself or teaming up with himself to drive Yuri wild. If JJ2 comes from an alternate dimension, slightly different tattoos would be cool. I'm really into identical, same-age JJ duplicates or one being canon-age + one being a few years older.

Feel free to indulge in tropey drama, as long as everything gets kissed better by the end, haha. JJ getting jealous seeing himself making out with Yuri. Yuri only being in a relationship with one and accidentally making a move on the wrong one without realizing it. Yuri running into JJ1 the day after hooking up with JJ2, and thinks JJ1's pretending the night before didn't mean anything. I'm always a fan of Yuri being emotionally dialed up to 11, lol. ...pure smut works too. I like romance, possessiveness, roughness, praise.

Victor Nikiforov/Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky:
Off the top of my head, my favorite options here would be same-age 27/28-year-old Victors, or 27/28-year-old Victor plus late-teens long-haired Victor :D Victor's vain enough I think he could be quite distracted by himself in either scenario. And Yuri tries very hard to stay jaded, but two Victors would dazzle anyone.

I like them playfully teaming up on Yuri. I also like Yuri pushing one or both of them to the point where they lose their temper. (one of them holds him down while the other spanks him? :D) Tropey drama is welcome here as well, as are overwhelming first relationships/first kisses/first time sex on Yuri's part. I'm open to dubcon if you are.

Victor Nikiforov/Teenage Victor Nikiforov/Christophe Giacometti:
I saw this in the tag set and absolutely could not resist :D Victor and Christophe have such great camaraderie and chemistry off the ice, and I'm very interested in the complications that could ensue from adding teen Victor.

I somewhat prefer Christophe being canon age like Victor, rather than younger like Teen!Victor. I'd love established Victor/Christophe with teen Victor added in, or on-again, off-again fuckbuddies, or various combinations of crushes and pining finally culminating in something. Both Chris and Victor feeling kind of dirty but also helplessly turned on by teen Victor, who's just so pretty and eager and thinks he's jaded but has no idea, really.

  • Prompt 1: High Fantasy AU! My one complete setting-change AU exception for this exchange, haha. Maybe witch!Yuri accidentally clones his knight/elf/prince boyfriend. Maybe catboy!Yuri falls in with dark and light fae folk doubles. The JJs or Victors as dragon shifters would be cool too.
  • Prompt 2: Established/handwaved connection between parallel universes -- alt!verse has different technological capabilities, so can send their people regularly back and forth. JJ or Victor is one of those people, and the alt!JJ or alt!Victor regularly visits canon verse. Maybe they're diplomats or scientists or related to scientists or celebrity emissaries? But they naturally seek out their double here, and that's how they meet the other two. (I'm down for tons of varieties on this, if those specifics don't work for you!)
  • Prompt 3: You don't even have to explain it, just start with a magic poof and what the fuck, why are there two of you? If the magic accident gives someone cat ears too, I wouldn't say no.
  • Prompt 4: If teen!Victor was magically called into being or brought over from an alternate dimension, I'm rather enamored of the idea of him ending up living with Victor (+ Christophe, or Chrisophe visits) for a prolonged period of time -- a guardian/ward thing while people figure out what to do with him. Bonus points for the dependency adding another layer of complication to the ensuing threeway attraction...
  • Prompt 5: Decadent hotel room or poolside shenanigans are always nice, as is gratuitous cuddling.

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Player Character,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite fandoms! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use or adapt one of my prompts, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration. I'm in this for fanworks about my faves -- the prompts are there to help if you want them!

I requested fanfic for all fandoms except Dragon Age, where I requested fanart :)

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'm seriously good with anything. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there -- it could work great for the visual novel canons in particular.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be Link, Noiz, Sei, Noctis, Seven, Saeran, and Rin.) (I'm good either way for Choicest! :D) My Smut Swap letters are still relevant, if you want tables and tables of my favorite kinks.

Request 1: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

  • Prince Sidon/Link
  • Original Male Character(s)/Link
  • Yigas/Link
  • Lynel/Link
  • Hinox/Link
  • Moblins/Link

Apparently if someone says "by the way, sharks have two dicks," I will reflexively pull out my wallet. Luckily, I am having so much fun with this game above and beyond the shark dicks -- it's so beautiful! I love flying and cooking and taming horses and playing dress-up with Link.

Link is brave and adorable, and of course I want both wonderful and terrible things to happen to him. My requested ships should reflect the scope of that pretty well.

I love Sidon a lot! He's so enthusiastic and cheerful, and has no doubt that Link will survive the scores of awful enemies awaiting down that road over there :D I like a fluffier dynamic for them than I usually am into -- possibly because the whole interspecies size difference thing makes it work that much better. That being said, I'd love emphasis on differences between their cultures and experiences -- both in terms of species and era.

For Sidon/Link smut, I strongly prefer that Sidon have two dicks. I am equally happy without smut, though, in which case you wouldn't have to specify either way.

Original Male Character(s)/Link -- I'm open to a lot of options here! Random one-night stand, seducing his way out of a bad situation, working together with someone for one quest or longer. Taking shelter with a nice, burly blacksmith on a rainy night. Gang-banged by mercenaries.

Yigas/Link, I'm not envisioning completely consensual, but you could totally sell me on one or more Yigas running into Link, not realizing who he is (maybe early on in the game?) and doing a dubcon seduction type thing. Or just go for straight-up noncon ;)

As for Lynel/Link, Hinox/Link, and Moblins/Link... hopefully those dynamics are pretty straightforward :D Feel free to take some extreme liberties with anatomical mechanics, just make sure Link is alive and not too damaged at the end of it. (magic and elixirs help :D)

Note: I only got the game recently, and am about halfway through -- but I will definitely be done by reveals!

  • Prompt 1: Have fun with the weather! Link shivering in the cold or panting in the heat are both great options.
  • Prompt 2: Swimming and diving with Sidon! Maybe Sidon's teaching him how to swim properly with his cool new Zora armor. And then maybe fucking on the rocks beneath Zora's Domain.
  • Prompt 3: Sidon or an OMC spots some mysterious sheer silky fabric in Link's stuff, and pulls out his Gerudo outfit. Then he persuades Link to put it on and show off for him. (how long it stays on is up to you...)
  • Prompt 4: Link gets caught stealing eggs; the farmer's happy to let him pay him back, but he isn't interested in rupees.
  • Prompt 5: Link meets another traveler or several at a campfire; they all spend the night, maybe drink a little, maybe flirt a little, maybe they should cuddle close for warmth...
  • Prompt 6: Fucking Yigas hideout. I died so many times on that quest. It would have been more fun if, instead of killing Link, they took him captive and gangbanged him, right??
  • Prompt 7: Monster prompt: Link loses a fight against a Lynel, Hinox, or Moblins, and instead of killing him, they fuck him. Bonus for cum inflation and crying.
  • Prompt 8: Sex pollen! Maybe Link discovers a new magical pond or field of magic flowers or something. Who else is there -- Sidon, OMCs, Yigas, monsters -- is up to you.

Request 2: Dragon Age

  • Male Lavellan

I'm requesting art for this fandom, and am very much hoping for art of my dagger-wielding assassin rogue, Corin Lavellan :) I have a tag here with screenshots of him for visual reference. I'm down with pre- or post-Trespasser, so with or without his original arms.

If info about his personality helps you: he's fairly guarded and doesn't trust most people -- which manifests in defensive, diplomatic politeness rather than snark. Which means he's great at the Halamshiral stuff, but hates every second of it. He's especially wary of everyone who wants something from him (which is most people, once he's Inquisitor). In a very short period of time, he goes from a total unknown to the internationally famous leader of an armed religious movement. That's pretty intense, and it takes him a while to find his footing.

Friendship kind of sneaks up on him slowly. But sex is a nice meaningless, totally meaningless distraction, well before the "getting to know you" stage.

He's also the Lavellan I had in mind while writing these fics. The fics are Solas/Lavellan, but he romanced Dorian in-game, and I also ship him with Blackwall. So if you feel like drawing ship art -- or having him hold a symbolic token or something -- those would all be welcome options.

  • Prompt 1: Really, just a straightforward portrait would thrill me beyond belief.
  • Prompt 2: Shirtless, with extra tattoos
  • Prompt 3: Posed on one of the cool thrones! My favorites are the Andrastian, Mage, and Legacy Kirkwall thrones
  • Prompt 4: Tarot portrait :D Either as a specific, symbolic card, or just general style/imagery
  • Prompt 5: Portrait with dramatic Fade lighting, rifts, stealthy swirls of shadow, lit up by the anchor, blue or red lyrium glows, etc.
  • Prompt 6: Riding a mount! My favorites art the dracolisks and harts.
  • Prompt 7: Hit the "hurt" part of my hurt/comfort thing with bruises, scrapes, bandages

  • Virus/Trip/Sei
  • Aoba/Ren/Sei

I'm replaying DMMd right now! Wow, this is just as much of a ride the second time around. I'm good with bringing elements of the bad ends into this (for example, snarling mindless sex beasts are my jam) but I'd still like fic to stay within the bounds of my general DNWs -- so, no major character death or graphic/detailed gore, etc.

I'm down for a variety of plot choices in this -- feel free to either stick closely to a canonical route, or mix and match between routes. For Koujaku/Noiz, Mink/Noiz, and Koujaku/Mink/Noiz, for example, maybe they all got successfully Scrapped, or one of them did, or none of them did. I do think there's a lot of interesting territory to explore with any of them Scrapped, since there's such an adjustment period there. Especially with Noiz, going from feeling almost nothing to suddenly feeling All The Things.

Virus/Trip/Noiz and Virus/Trip/Sei -- I really want indulgent badwrong here. Which may or may not be explicit! Like, I'm down for Noiz or Sei getting waterboarded with champagne and then fucked by a robot lion. But I'm also down for more subtle, playful seductions. I imagine Virus and Trip could be very intrigued by Noiz, particularly if they found out about his condition. And there's a lot of history to explore with Sei's captivity. Pre-canon or post-canon are equally fascinating to me for both ships.

Aoba/Ren/Sei needs a bit of finagling to get all three of them alive and in person-bodies. You're welcome to completely handwave that and forgo explanation. You're also welcome to explain it! Maybe Toue has a Sei clone lying around. Maybe Ren downloads into a human-shaped robot body. There are plenty of options :D No matter how you get them all together, there's so much weirdness to navigate there. I love dwelling in that weirdness -- getting to know each other, dealing with the incest, Ren adjusting to not being a robot dog, Sei adjusting to not being a prisoner.

Or not adjusting. I like the struggle :P

  • Prompt 1: In general, for visual novels I like the idea of putting a NPC in the PC's role for certain situations -- like, if Noiz ended up in the Virus/Trip bad end instead of Aoba, or if Noiz ended up kidnapped and brought to Mink's lair.
  • Prompt 2: Rhyme can get intensely psychological and strange. Crossing back and forth between the game world and the real world -- are there physical side effects for Noiz? Does he form relationships in-game that he doesn't know how to handle in real life? Does he have relationships in real life that he loses track of while spending so much time playing?
  • Prompt 3: Iddy hurt/comfort centered around Sei's fragility, please!
  • Prompt 4: I really enjoy enemies-to-lovers and/or hate sex for Koujaku/Noiz. I like fics where Koujaku's caring nature comes out in response to Noiz being such a weird, isolated trainwreck. But Koujaku's got some trainwreck tendencies too, so... grudging caretaking all around is basically my jam.
  • Prompt 5: Noiz can be a bit of a brat, and I'm into daddy kink dynamics for him if a ship works for it. I'm not into the actual word "daddy" as much, but that sort of age kink, praise kink, dom/sub thing -- yes.
  • Prompt 6: Toss any ship into the crazy, decadent world of Platinum Jail! Noiz sneaks in for a fun time pre-canon, runs into Koujaku and/or Noiz. Or Virus and Trip take Sei for a fun field trip.
  • Prompt 7: PWP where Koujaku and/or Mink punishes Noiz for being a brat, and Noiz is totally into it. Particularly if Noiz is newly able to feel everything, could be very, very fun to get into bondage, spanking, nipple clamps....
  • Prompt 8: Any excuse for sex pollen or aphrodisiacs :D

Request 4: Final Fantasy XV

  • Gladiolus Amicitia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

Overall, I'm down for a broad range of relationship dynamics. Depending on the time and place, I can see Ardyn and Ravus as more sympathetic or very much not sympathetic, more helpful or more harmful -- depending on how their personal agendas happen to interact with Noct's welfare that day. Gladio's good for fantastic protective loyalty kink and lashing out with stress and frustration. Also, just. Size difference kink, all over the place.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

If you would like to include my chocobo OC, that would utterly delight me. Noct has a white chocobo, and her name is Nebula, which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. For Ravus/Noct or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct, Ravus and Ardyn shouldn't die either.

  • Prompt 1: Split the plot goals more equitably. Luna's off taking care of waking the gods and stuff; Noct's job is just to collect his ancestor's weapons and then take care of the Niflheim invasion from a more tactical/military perspective.
  • Prompt 2: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me for Gladio/Noct! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.
  • Prompt 3: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 4: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender with Gladio, or they fuck in a gondola, or things get a lil wild at the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. ("if I beat you at Chocobo racing you have to do whatever I say tonight" y/y??) Or Ravus takes the opportunity to "negotiate" with Noctis. Ardyn can come along too if he wants.
  • Prompt 5: Noct and Gladio get separated from the other chocobros out in the wilderness (without phones? idk), and have to trek across the countryside to get to civilization (and phones) in order to reunite.
  • Prompt 6: Canon divergence -- either from the signing of the treaty or another point -- Noct ends up as an honored guest/hostage at Niflheim's court. Cue decadent banquets, unwanted attention, and giving in to distraction. Ardyn being his creepy self. For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)
  • Prompt 7: Oh no, Luna's gone missing. Noctis will just have to marry Ravus instead.
  • Prompt 8: Ardyn decides he wants to rule the world, but he doesn't want to rule alone.

Request 5: Mystic Messenger

  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Jumin Han
  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Saeran Choi
  • 707 | Luciel Choi/V
  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Zen | Hyun Ryu

I love the texting and bantering and bickering and the wacky party guests and the rare potato chips. And as is my usual visual novel style, I've ended up shipping the love interests with each other more than with the main character.

I love how intense each of them is about their work, and how they each have their quirks. They're very independent, and I don't think many of them would have been drawn together without Rika's influence forming the RFA. I like the intensity and the rough edges, and don't want things to get too sweet too quickly. But the mutual protective impulses are A++.

Jumin and Seven have this pigtail-pulling thing going on over Elizabeth. V and Seven have a very close connection and share a lot of secrets, but there's a difference in authority and control that I see frustrating Seven a lot. Seven and Zen's friendship with mutual caretaking is very nice, with Zen wanting Seven to eat better and Seven helping Zen out in his own not-quite-legal ways. And damn, Seven and Saeran hit all my dysfunctional twincest buttons. There's so much tangled up between them, and cutting through it will be painful, but worth it if they can get to the core feelings.

I've finished the five main routes. Haven't played any of the post-ending extras, but don't worry about spoiling anything. I'm really down for whichever route you want to follow if you write canon-era fic. You're also welcome to mix and match events from different routes -- for example, if you have Elizabeth go missing and Zen gets slandered by Echo Girl, while MC hooks up with Jaehee in the background. Follow your inspiration and do whatever works best for your story :D

Notes: For V/Seven, please don't set the fic while he's still together with Rika.

If you're writing canon-era or post-canon fic and want to include the MC, I'm open to any name and appearance for her. Depending on which of my requested ships you're writing, I like her ending up with Jaehee, Zen, or Seven. (or nobody works too!)

  • Prompt 1: Someone, anyone, is wearing cat ears.
  • Prompt 2: Something along the lines of Jumin's canon route, except he's getting neurotically possessive/over-protective over Seven instead of the MC.
  • Prompt 3: V wants Seven to pose for a sensual, romantic photo shoot. Clothes optional, depending on what you want to write!
  • Prompt 4: Something unexpected happens between one of the ships at one of the RFA parties! Could be a hook-up, could be a surprise kiss, could be a drunken confession? Either a pre-canon party, or the Day 11 party at the end of the game? Could be fumbling in a dark corner, or embarrassingly public? Dealer's choice ;)
  • Prompt 5: Jumin needs a guest for a fancy business event. Or Zen needs a guest for a fancy theater event. They ask Seven. Neither of them is sure if it's a date, but they really really want it to be.
  • Prompt 6: Have fun with the chatroom and messaging format! Flirting over text, sending each other photos, sexting, etc. (Bonus if it's a prelude to meeting up in person after a day or week or so of driving each other crazy) (with Saeran in particular I could see it starting out as taunting and then getting more flirty...)
  • Prompt 7: Seven and Saeran end up on the run together after the events of the game -- possibly one holding the other captive? or working together -- and struggling through memories and feelings, and being just generally possessive and desperate.
  • Prompt 8: Mission gone awry, sex pollen style: Seven gets dosed with an aphrodisiac by a *handwave* shady villain. Other character in the ship is stuck dealing with him ;) Or another character does, and Seven has to take care of them ;)

Request 6: Togainu no Chi

  • Shiki/Rin

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

shadow_lover: (price)

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite ships! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration. I'm in this for fic about my faves -- the prompts are there to help if you want them!

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'm seriously good with anything. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be Akutagawa, Atsushi, Mello, Noctis, Ritsuka, Gaara, Seven, Saeran, and Rin.) (I'm good either way for AkuAtsu and Choicest! :D) My Smut Swap letter is still relevant, and includes a lot of these ships.

Yes, Please!

  • Rough sex, hair-pulling, bite-marks, bruises, breath play, spanking

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi

The character designs are what first drew me in, but the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked. I enjoy both lighter and darker takes on all my requested ships.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

And Dazai's this fascinating mix between childish and jaded; he's a great strategist and a terrible mentor. I can see him hooking up or getting into a relationship because he thinks he can use it to his advantage, and then accidentally falling for real.

Note: I'm caught up with the anime and the manga :)

  • Prompt 1: Any pair getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance, erotica... Basically, it's an in-canon excuse for an AU, which works for me in a way a lot of pure AUs don't.
  • Prompt 2: Any of these ships would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Bondage, maybe? ;) Seriously any pairing, consensual or dubcon or noncon, before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars... the power dynamics get pretty interesting with all of these ships.

Request 2: Death Note

  • L/Mello
  • L/Mello /Yagami Light
  • Mello /Yagami Light

I love L's intensity and the contrast between his dazzling intellect and his slovenly appearance. He’s an incredibly skilled investigator, yet sits curled up like a child and is probably extremely malnourished from the candy diet. I like seeing him get tangled up in his cases and racing to keep ahead in the manipulation game – particularly moments where he’s not quite sure he’s really ahead.

Mello’s got a large, intense personality, but there’s still a lot of room for character exploration between the surface notes. He plays the same game as L, but he’s not quite as adept and he hides insecurity behind anger or indifference. I’m interested in his interactions with other characters during the narrative present rather than his school days.

And Light -- possibly my favorite part about him is that he thinks he's doing the right thing. I'd love to see that explored, even as he continues the whole evil god complex. I'd rather the narrative not justify his actions, though.

Note: For each ship, I'd like a canon divergent AU where the characters in that ship don't die :D But for Light/Mello, it's definitely okay if L died -- I'm actually very into them navigating the post-L reality.

  • Prompt 1: Mello or L gets captured by *insert bad guys here* and held hostage. He’s been beaten, interrogated, half-starved, possibly molested for weeks before he’s finally rescued or escapes. The other half of the ship takes charge of nursing him back to health, with varying levels of altruism in their intentions…
  • Prompt 2: Let’s play dress-up with Mello! Maybe Mello has to dress as a girl for *hand wave* infiltration reasons, maybe his partner (boyfriend, or just partner for the night) just really wants him trussed up in a corset and stockings.
  • Prompt 3: Mello survives, but Light still wins. He holds Mello captive, to use as he pleases. He might even think this is love.
  • Prompt 4: Mello and L survive, but Light still wins. Now Mello and L are in hiding together, trying to fight back or just stay alive. Or maybe one of them is under Light's control, and the other's trying to secure his release...
  • Prompt 5: I'd love fic that incorporates L's sweet tooth without getting too cracky. Maybe some introspective licking of chocolate syrup from someone's belly; maybe working out his frenetic daily schedule so he has time to hit the convenience store for lollipops between meetings; maybe he ran out of candy and is starting to crash hard when shit-talking Mello saves the day.
  • Prompt 6: After L dies, Mello starts unconsciously using Light as a substitute for him. An ally, a rival, an obsession. Maybe Light is using Mello for the same reasons.

Request 3: Final Fantasy XV

  • Gladiolus Amicitia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

If you would like to include my chocobo OC, that would utterly delight me. Noct has a white chocobo, and her name is Nebula, which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. For Ravus/Noct or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct, Ravus and Ardyn shouldn't die either.

  • Prompt 1: Split the plot goals more equitably. Luna's off taking care of waking the gods and stuff; Noct's job is just to collect his ancestor's weapons and then take care of the Niflheim invasion from a more tactical/military perspective.
  • Prompt 2: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me for Gladio/Noct! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.

For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)

Request 4: Loveless

  • Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 14 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes you could sell me on. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :) In terms of power dynamics, I'm really interested in Soubi's desire/need to submit, and how that meshes very messily with the fact that in this relationship, he's still the adult putting his leash in Ritsuka's hand. Ritsuka really isn't equipped to deal with Soubi's issues (and neither, of course, is Soubi).

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

In a situation with the three of them -- Seimei is very cold, but he does treat Ritsuka as exceptional. And he's happy to use Soubi and Ritsuka against each other.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Could also work for bad-wrong hurt/comfort with Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? Would work for easily Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi -- or even Soubi/Ritsuka, with them finding companionship in Seimei's shadow.
  • Prompt 3: Something a little more lighthearted! Celebrating a holiday or birthday or other special event. Dressing up, making memories, showing affection, getting flustered. Possibly a tinge of sadness that some people aren't there to celebrate too.

Request 6: Naruto

  • Kakashi/Gaara
  • Kankurou/Gaara
  • Naruto/Gaara

So apparently I didn't skip my Naruto phase. I just delayed it. We can blame the Crunchyroll free trial I forgot to cancel. I had to make the most of my accidental subcription somehow.

The melodrama and tragedy and humor and character designs and child soldiers and intense weird relationships of various flavors and 500 onsen episodes all really work for me. Looking at my requests, you may be able to discern my favorite character.

I adore him, murderously poor coping skills and all. I like fic that taps into vulnerabilities without handwaving the whole ruthless child murderer backstory thing. Explore how far he's grown emotionally, and how far he still has to go.

With Naruto, I love how deeply invested they are in each other. The saving-Gaara arc was extremely good to me. (I wonder if anyone told Gaara how much Naruto cried over him?) As of the point I've gotten to, they've mostly only seen each other in very high-stakes situations -- it would be interesting to how they interact in more casual scenarios. Getting to know each other, etc.

I also started hardcore shipping Kankurou with Gaara during the saving-Gaara arc. He was just so intense about going after him -- and standing up for him when the rest of the council didn't want to rescue him. I liked the bits we got about Kankurou clearing out potential threats when Gaara became Kazekage. He and Temari both became Gaara's staunchest supporters, after being basically on "try not to let him murder people" duty when we first met them. I want to see that reliance and affection taken to the next level.

I'll confess that Kakashi/Gaara started as "well, I fucking love Gaara, and I fucking love Kakashi, so..." But I am seriously down for however you want to take this. They could work surprisingly well together, or be a total trainwreck. They've both got violent, lonely pasts, and various flavors of daddy issues. I'm very interested in them having to work together professionally, and taking things from there.

Note: I will have gotten through at least Shippuden episode 200 by reveals. And don't kill me, but I'd prefer no spoilers for future events. Incorporating information about backstories that's revealed later in the anime/manga is fine, but not "what happens next in the narrative present." I hope that makes sense. If it doesn't make sense, or if you have any questions about my Naruto preferences/knowledge/etc, you can ask mornelithe_falconsbane for help. They know everything.

  • Prompt 1: Someone is trying to assassinate Gaara! So the assassins must be stopped. And Gaara has to be protected, even though he'd rather just deal with them on his own -- people are sensitive about that after he's already been kidnapped and murdered once. Feel free to take this into political intrigue or action, or just focus on the iddy hurt/comfort and bodyguarding elements. (Or all of it. All of it is good.)
  • Prompt 2: Anything dealing with Gaara adjusting to life post-Shukaku would make me very, very happy. Figuring out what elements of him were the demon's influence, and what was him all along. Any physical differences in stamina or sensation. Actually sleeping. Dealing with feelings and connections when he's used to isolation.
  • Prompt 3: Any sex pollen/aphrodisiac scenario you can think of, I'm there. Enemy jutsu has everyone horny? Someone spiked the punch at the diplomatic banquet? Gaara has a collection of succulents and one of them has Special Properties? The wildlife just gets weird sometimes? Bonus points if Gaara loses his virginity in the most overwhelming way possible.

Request 7: Togainu no Chi

  • Shiki/Rin

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Creator!!!

I'm so excited for this exchange; YOI basically devoured me in November. I'm not even usually into sports anime. But. I was incredibly into Figure Skating RPF during the Vancouver Olympics, and what I'd heard of YOI sounded slashy, so I thought I'd give it a try. And oh my god, it's everything I ever wanted in a figure skating anime :D

It's probably apparent that I adore Yuri Plisetsky. (delicate fairy! loves cats! passionate and determined! values his friends and family! is 110% ready to fuck you up!) And I multi-ship the hell out of him. I've requested some old favorite ships as well as some ships that have newly captured my imagination.

I know this letter is a bit long; I do a lot of exchanges and geek out about letters :D Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose an idea from one ship to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

For fic:

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

I'm happy with any rating, from General Audiences to Explicit. Plot is awesome, plot with porn is awesome, porn without plot is awesome. Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom -- for YOI, that would be Yuri Plisetsky. My Smut Swap letter is still relevant, if that interests you.

For art:

I like both digital and traditional drawings. I'm interested in purposeful color schemes, which could be vibrant or restrained or even stark black and white -- something that fits your vision for the request. I like dynamic pieces, but also captured moments of stillness. I like emotion, tension, connection, hurt, and tenderness. I prefer identifiable figures instead of abstract pieces. Like with fic, anything from General Audiences to Explicit is fine by me.

I'm more interested in setting AUs for art than for fic -- especially fantasy settings, steampunk, cyberpunk, urban sci-fi/fantasy stuff. Magic tattoos and drapey clothing and too-tight clothing and dragon scales and sparks at their fingertips.

If you can work in some hurt/comfort elements here too, I'm not going to complain.

Note -- I love art, but I'm not an artist myself. Please feel welcome to contact me through the mod if you need me to give more or different information. I think most of my prompts lend themselves to visual interpretations of specific scenes or situations; for those that might not, I've tried to include separate visual notes.

Yes, Please!

  • Age differences
  • Bondage, blindfolds
  • Brave, silent suffering until another character realizes something’s wrong
  • Canon divergence AUs
  • Catboys (particularly if they purr and go into heat)
  • Corsets
  • Cum inflation
  • Dubcon, manipulation, complicated feelings
  • Emotional and/or physical hurt/comfort
  • Hand-holding, casual touches, tenderness
  • Happy or ambiguous endings
  • Huddling for warmth, locked in a closet, enforced proximity scenarios
  • Insomnia, nightmares
  • Loyalty and protectiveness
  • Omegaverse (especially claiming, heats, and knotting. Slick's fine as long as it isn't excessive/soaking through clothing.)
  • Overworking, intentional or accidental undereating, self-care failures due to stress
  • Possessiveness
  • Praise kink
  • Rough sex, hair-pulling, bite-marks, bruises, breath play, spanking
  • Sex pollen, fuck or die, desperation scenarios
  • Size kink – both the size difference and the massive dick kind
  • Somnophilia - all consent levels, waking up or not are both fine
  • Tentacles

Do Not Want

  • Animal harm/death
  • Crossovers/fusions
  • Extreme underage (14+ is fine)
  • First or second person POV
  • Infidelity, requested ships breaking up*
  • Main character death, graphic gore, permanent maiming/incapacitation (so, no career-ending injuries)
  • Pregnancy, requested characters as parents
  • Scat, watersports, emetophilia, rimming, sounding
  • Setting-change AUs, role-reversal AUs, age swap AUs, gender identity AUs**

*Infidelity Notes: For JJ/Yuri ships, please handwave and pretend JJ isn't dating Isabella. Same for Chris/Yuri ships -- please handwave his probable boyfriend out of the picture. For Victor/Yuri ships, I'd also rather have an AU where Victor/Yuuri just never happened -- I don't want them to have been together and then broken up or anything. Victor can still coach Yuuri, of course :)

The canon ships as background pairings are fine if they don't interfere with the requested ship. (So, background JJ/Isabella is fine in a Chris/Victor/Yuri fic, for example.)

**As said in the art section, setting change AUs are fine for art.

General Prompts

Here's some stuff that could be applied to any or all of my requested ships!

  • Prompt 1: Wagers! In practice, competition, leisure time, whenever. "If I land this jump, you have to do X." "If I beat you in this event, you have to do Y." "Okay, but if you don't, you have to.." Consequences can be sexy (kiss me, blow me, take your shirt off, wear cat ears and a collar for me) or a bit more romantic (go on a date!), depending on ship and what you'd prefer to write or draw. Longer fic could do a series of escalating wagers, but just one would be perfect for shorter fic!
  • Prompt 2: And this is going back to my baby-fan roots, but I'm a sucker for party game tropes. Spin the bottle, never have I ever, seven minutes in heaven, strip poker -- you know, just casual games between friends ;) Maybe a handful of skaters end up hanging out in one's hotel room after a gala, and then one by one people leave until only two are left? Or they end up making out while everyone else is still there, that works too ;)
  • Prompt 3: For something a bit less lighthearted -- they're all high-level athletes under intense pressure. Exploring the healthy and unhealthy ways they deal with that pressure and stress (alone, or with each other, or both) is very interesting to me.
  • Prompt 4: Art prompt! I would love to see any of my ships reimagined as tarot cards. Either representing a specific existing card, or just in a symbolic card-like design. Tarot imagery would be A++ in fic too.
  • Prompt 5: Okay, this one's an glaring exception to my general "No total AUs" thing: Showjumping AU. Give me tight breeches and tall boots and obsession over the lines of their legs. The precision and daring of their riding styles. Inappropriate use of riding crops. Taking a break and going out for romantic trail rides alone (and then fucking in the forest? lol.) Clandestine tack room hookups. Gratuitous descriptions of how great their horses are. (Dressage works too, as does cross country. No thoroughbred racing, please.) (Also: please no bestiality-adjacent jokes about mounting each other, being hung like a horse, etc. Those are often fine with me, but not in a context where there are actual horses around)

And some bonus song prompts, too, if digging into lyrics appeals to you.

Pairings

Christophe Giacometti/Yuri Plisetsky:
These two don't interact a whole lot on-screen, but I really want to see how their personalities might mesh! The age and experience and size differences are fun to play with. Chris could be a good tempering influence on Yuri - "here's how to have a competitive rivalry without driving all your friends away by being a brat." Or Chris could be a very, very bad influence instead, if you know what I mean ;)

Maybe Yuri's fascinated by Chris's very sensual style, and fixates on him to figure out how he can convey similar passion on the ice. Maybe they hook up at a banquet. Maybe they bond over cat photos. Maybe they run into each other at a club. Maybe they're just hanging out at an event, and find a connection/attraction. Art snapshots of any of the above would be excellent. Extra visuals: hair-pulling, impromptu bondage, pole-dancing, comfy cat sweaters.

Jean-Jacques Leroy/Yuri Plisetsky:
Give me all the angry teasing here :D I love JJ pulling Yuri's pigtails, so to speak, and Yuri overreacting. Yuri gets pissed both when JJ teases him and when JJ tries to be nice to him. I like the concept of Yuri being even more angry about being attracted to him. I really like the concept of them being wildly attracted to each other, aware of each other's presence, etc. And maybe JJ realizing he genuinely likes Yuri, and then the process of actually *acting* on that is definitely fraught. I see JJ being the more mature one here who realizes what's up, but which of them actually acts on it first could go however you'd like.

Angry sex, a one night stand, a one night stand that leads to more, an Actual Date, stuck in an elevator -- I'm down :D Visuals I like: height difference, angry blushing, tenderness, cat stuff, maybe dancing? Any sort of dancing -- ballet, ballroom, getting down and dirty.

Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky:
I really enjoy the evolution of their relationship. Yuri gets to share a rink and a coach with his idol, so there's the distance of age and prestige but also the closeness as teammates. Yuri puts a lot of weight into Victor's promise to him, and Victor's very invested in Yuri's success. ...while Yuri can also be a complete brat about anything and everything :D Fic-wise, I'm into canon-era, maybe slightly pre-canon, and also what comes next -- how does their relationship continue to evolve now that Victor's returning to the ice, and they're going to directly compete against each other for the first time?

I'm down for anything from tender to badwrong to a bit of both with them. Toss in some of my kinkier likes, delve into emotions, or get some emotional, character-driven kink in here. Art and fic that plays up the size difference would be much-loved. And art or fic set in an AU where it was Yuri who hit on Victor at the infamous banquet instead of Yuuri could be amazing.

back to top ^^

Threesomes

Christophe Giacometti/Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky:
Friendly rivals + next gen rising star = shadow's down for this. Victor and Christophe have such great camaraderie and chemistry off the ice, and I'm very interested in seeing that spiced up by adding Yuri. I'm open a lot of possible configurations/set-ups: Established relationship Victor/Christophe hooking up with Yuri as a one-time/occasional thing. Established relationship Victor/Christophe bringing in Yuri as a more permanent arrangement. On-again, off-again fuckbuddies Victor/Christophe hooking up with Yuri. Established hook-ups or relationship Victor/Yuri, and Victor persuades Yuri it'd be fun to share. Or crushes and pining in various combos, but nobody's actually gotten together until now. Whatever makes sense to you.

I'm into Yuri being very brash/eager and then getting in way over his head & overwhelmed. Hotel room or poolside shenanigans. Banquets gone awry (I am always into this, lol). Victor and Christophe have a habit of going clubbing after events; this time Yuri finally tags along. Pole dancing contest. Gratuitous cuddling.

Christophe Giacometti/Yuri Plisetsky/Christophe Giacometti's Boyfriend:
Christophe's mysterious male companion! Here's what we know, as listed on the wiki: "He is a member of the Swiss Skating Federation, possibly a former ice dancer, and he takes care of Chris's cat." I'd like him to be in an established relationship with Chris (since he's in this tag set as "Chris's Boyfriend") and I imagine he's someone who can definitely keep up with Chris, but other than that, he's totally open to your interpretation. However you want to headcanon him, whatever you want to name him, etc.

Anyway. I'm down for Chris/CGB/Yuri as a one-time or occasional thing, or building into a consistent threeway relationship. You can take any of my Chris/Yuri prompts above and just add in CGB. Or maybe CGB notices Yuri's crush on Chris, and thinks it's cute -- plus the kid looks very bendy, so why don't they invite him into bed for a night? Maybe someone gets drunk and ends up in the wrong hotel room. I could see Chris having an exhibitionism kink and getting off on CGB watching him and Yuri together... or them teasing Chris by making him watch as they make out/fuck/whatever. I would not say no to fic or art of a game of strip poker on a hotel bed.

Jean-Jacques Leroy/Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky:
I talked about JJ/Yuri and Victor/Yuri above. For the third leg of the triangle, damn. JJ's been working and planning to finally beat Victor -- and then Victor retires. The competitive cock-blocking must be so frustrating. And I can easily see attraction there, especially with JJ's desire to get Victor's attention. I like the idea that Victor maybe pays a *bit* more attention to JJ than he lets on, but is amused at how flustered JJ gets when he thinks Victor's forgotten his name :D I like the dynamic with their age differences -- JJ's more levelheaded than Yuri, but still younger and less experienced than Victor.

You're welcome to start with established JJ/Yuri or Victor/Yuri, and bring the third in either for a one-time or longterm thing. (I have a bit more trouble seeing established Victor/JJ, but if you can swing it I wouldn't say no! In that case I'd definitely want Yuri as part of the endgame, though.) Or first times all around. Yuri's boyfriend finding out about his crush on the other, and discovering he's into sharing. Competing for Victor's attention turns into something more. Yuri developing terribly inconvenient simultaneous crushes. Alpha!Victor/Alpha!JJ/Omega!Yuri would be great. Or catboy!Yuri goes into heat. Some visuals: stretching, half-undressed, bruises, lip-biting, someone holding Yuri from behind while the other kisses him (or leans in for a kiss).

Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky/Georgi Popovich:
I've talked about Yuri and Victor above a lot, and I also love Georgi. I love his drama, his passion, his dedication. He's not on Victor's level, but he's a top skater in a very competitive country for skating; he's got an edge. I could see his resentment of Victor taking the spotlight being complicated by a massive crush, and his interest in Yuri as a rising star transforming into a romantic fascination as well. But they're also all teammates, and very comfortable with each other. They see each other through a lot of ups and downs. Add all that to Victor and Yuri's dynamic, and the threesome possibilities are excellent.

I'll admit, the prompt that immediately jumps out for these three is "Victor and Georgi initiate Yuri into seniors. With sex." (Whether that is an actual tradition or just something Victor made up is debateable.) A night out comforting Georgi after a break-up could turn into something more. Maybe Georgi and Yuri both have insane crushes on Victor, and they compete for his affections until he picks both. Or A/B/O, and Victor and Georgi are alphas sharing/competing over Omega!Yuri? Maybe Yuri has fun teasing both of them for weeks, until Victor and Georgi decide enough's enough and team up on him. Other visuals: evil witch costumes, other fairy tale things, locker room, doing each other's hair, smudged eyeliner.

back to top ^^

Doubles & Tentacles

For these ships, you can, of course, push the setting boundaries with sci-fi and fantasy justifications -- just as long as the characters are all still skaters, etc. Whether random doubles or tentacle monsters are something impossible and shocking or plausible (and still shocking? :P) in that setting is up to you.

I don't want clones who were cloned as embryos and raised as separate people in the same world -- that's basically just twins. So, time travel shenanigans, accidentally crossed over from an alternate dimension, or science-magically duplicated in the present are all great options.

Jean-Jacques Leroy/Jean-Jacques Leroy/Yuri Plisetsky:
And Yuri thought one JJ was bad enough :D I see this as double the trouble, and JJ being constantly unsure whether he should be competing with himself or teaming up with himself to drive Yuri wild. If JJ2 comes from an alternate dimension, slightly different tattoos would be cool. I'm really into identical, same-age JJ duplicates or one being canon-age + one being a few years older.

Feel free to indulge in tropey drama, as long as everything gets kissed better by the end, haha. JJ getting jealous seeing himself making out with Yuri. Yuri only being in a relationship with one and accidentally making a move on the wrong one without realizing it. Yuri running into JJ1 the day after hooking up with JJ2, and thinks JJ1's pretending the night before didn't mean anything. I'm always a fan of Yuri being emotionally dialed up to 11, lol. ...pure smut works too. I like romance, possessiveness, roughness, praise.

Victor Nikiforov/Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky:
Off the top of my head, my favorite options here would be same-age 27/28-year-old Victors, or 27/28-year-old Victor plus late-teens long-haired Victor :D Victor's vain enough I think he could be quite distracted by himself in either scenario. And Yuri tries very hard to stay jaded, but two Victors would dazzle anyone.

I like them playfully teaming up on Yuri. I also like Yuri pushing one or both of them to the point where they lose their temper. (one of them holds him down while the other spanks him? :D) Tropey drama is welcome here as well, as are overwhelming first relationships/first kisses/first time sex on Yuri's part. I'm open to dubcon if you are. More visuals: flower crowns, wrists tied with ribbons, cat ears, scandalous costumes.

Yuri Plisetsky/Tentacle Monster:
Okay, I'm definitely not into this for the Safe Sane Consensual jazz. I like dubcon and noncon all the way here, whether of the purely horrifying or "oh no, this is starting to feel good, I don't want it to feel so good" variety. (hurting is good. sex pollen so he physically wants it is good. hurting while he wants it is good too :D) For fic, the set-up's up to you. Maybe Yuri gets lost in a remote area of Hatetsu. Maybe he's out on like a camping retreat with other skaters and gets accosted by a tentacle creature in the wilderness. It could be an octopus/kraken-style tentacle monster, or something land-based. I'm also down for rapey plants with vine-tentacles. Maybe a demented fan gives him a super creepy potted plant that ends up growing massive and raping him?

Kinks I'm really down for: improbably large insertions, stomach bulging, cum inflation, sex pollen, nipple-sucking, overstimulation, knotting, crying, forced orgasm. Feel free to take liberties with anatomy in terms of what can actually go up a butt without causing irreparable damage.

You don't have to spell this out explicitly, but I'd like him in a state where he could plausibly physically recover from the encounter. Mental recovery can be harder, but I do like him brittle and ruthlessly suppressing his trauma.

I also have a very specific humiliation squick, and I don't want the entire world or all the other skaters, etc, knowing about Yuri's tentacle encounter. So if you're writing fic and want to deal with any aftermath, I'd rather have nobody find out, or just a potential friend/love interest or two. (ideally, from one of the other ships I've requested)

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite ships! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mods.

General Preferences

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'm seriously good with anything. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be Chuuya, Noctis, Ritsuka, and Yuri.)(For my non-Chuuya BSD ships, I also kinda prefer Dazai on top. I don't usually have a toppy bicycle, so this is new for me!!)(No preferences in Mysme! They're all my dysfunctional faves ^^) My Smut Swap letter is still relevant, and includes a lot of these ships.

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi

The character designs are what first drew me in, but the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked.

Chuuya's so much fun for me. I like fic that keeps his edge, even when indulging in the fantastic whump potential of Corruption. I like him and Dazai being assholes to each other, but coming through when it really, really counts. I'm also a sucker for ridiculous!drunk!Chuuya.

Dazai's this fascinating mix between childish and jaded; he's a great strategist and a terrible mentor. I can see him hooking up or getting into a relationship because he thinks he can use it to his advantage, and then accidentally falling for real.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

Note: I'm caught up with the anime and the manga :)

  • Prompt 1: Any pair getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance, erotica... Basically, it's an in-canon excuse for an AU, which works for me in a way a lot of pure AUs don't.
  • Prompt 2: Any of these ships would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Chuuya in a dress for whatever reason and being Extremely Grumpy about it is really appealing to me. Even if it kind of secretly turns him on, he'd never admit it, especially with Dazai teasing him. Maybe he has to dress up for a *handwave* mission, or he lost a bet...
  • Prompt 4: Bondage, maybe? ;) Seriously any pairing, consensual or dubcon or noncon, before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars... the power dynamics get pretty interesting with all of these ships.
  • Prompt 5: Dazai's completely moved on from the mafia, and he definitely doesn't want anything to do with Chuuya. But when he hears Chuuya has a new partner -- that's not acceptable.

Request 2: Final Fantasy XV

  • Gladiolus Amicitia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

Overall, I'm down for a broad range of relationship dynamics. Depending on the time and place, I can see Ardyn and Ravus as more sympathetic or very much not sympathetic, more helpful or more harmful -- depending on how their personal agendas happen to interact with Noct's welfare that day. Gladio's good for fantastic protective loyalty kink and lashing out with stress and frustration. Also, just. Size difference kink, all over the place.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

If you would like to include my chocobo OC, that would utterly delight me. Noct has a white chocobo, and her name is Nebula, which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. For Ardyn/Noct, Ravus/Noct, or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct, Ardyn and Ravus shouldn't die either.

Chocobro Ship Prompts

  • Prompt 1: Split the plot goals more equitably. Luna's off taking care of waking the gods and stuff; Noct's job is just to collect his ancestor's weapons and then take care of the Niflheim invasion from a more tactical/military perspective.
  • Prompt 2: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.
  • Prompt 3: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 4: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender, or they fuck in a gondola, or things get a lil wild at the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. ("if I beat you at Chocobo racing you have to do whatever I say tonight" y/y??)
  • Prompt 5: Noct and Gladio get separated from the other chocobros out in the wilderness (without phones? idk), and have to trek across the countryside to get to civilization (and phones) in order to reunite.

Enemies to ???? Ship Prompts

  • Prompt 1: If Noct asks to ride along with Ardyn, Ardyn answers, "You might find the cab fare to be more than you bargained for." So, I'd love fic of Ardyn letting Noct ride along after all, and collecting that cab fare.
  • Prompt 2: What happens during the "several days later" at the start of chapter 5, when Ardyn has rescued them from Titan?
  • Prompt 3: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 4: Romantic date night in Altissia! Ardyn dubcon wines and dines Noctis -- or Ravus takes the opportunity to "negotiate" with Noctis... Or both. Both is good.
  • Prompt 5: Canon divergence -- either from the signing of the treaty or another point -- Noct ends up as an honored guest/hostage at Niflheim's court. Cue decadent banquets, unwanted attention, and giving in to distraction. Ardyn being his creepy self. For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)
  • Prompt 6: Oh no, Luna's gone missing. Noctis will just have to marry Ravus instead.
  • Prompt 7: Ardyn decides he wants to rule the world, but he doesn't want to rule alone. Ardyn/Noct or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct all work very well here.
  • Prompt 8: Instead of being in the crystal or whatever for ten years, Noctis is held captive by Ardyn for one year.

Request 3: Loveless

  • Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes you could sell me on. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :) In terms of power dynamics, I'm really interested in Soubi's desire/need to submit, and how that meshes very messily with the fact that in this relationship, he's still the adult putting his leash in Ritsuka's hand. Ritsuka really isn't equipped to deal with Soubi's issues (and neither, of course, is Soubi).

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

In a situation with the three of them -- Seimei is very cold, but he does treat Ritsuka as exceptional. And he's happy to use Soubi and Ritsuka against each other.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Could also work for bad-wrong hurt/comfort with Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? Would work for easily Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi -- or even Soubi/Ritsuka, with them finding companionship in Seimei's shadow.
  • Prompt 3: Something a little more lighthearted, I guess -- celebrating a holiday or birthday or other special event. Dressing up, making memories, showing affection, getting flustered. Possibly a tinge of sadness that some people aren't there to celebrate too.

Request 4: Mystic Messenger

  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Jumin Han
  • 707 | Luciel Choi/V
  • 707 | Luciel Choi/Zen | Hyun Ryu
  • Jumin Han/Zen | Hyun Ryu
  • V/Zen | Hyun Ryu

I fully blame Aeiouna for my lack of sleep over the past month and a half, as first it was "Aei keeps posting cute Mysme things, maybe I should check this out" and next it was "I'm setting an alarm for 3 a.m. to talk with my video game boyfriend."

No regrets!! I'm having so much fun with this game. I love the texting and bantering and bickering and the wacky party guests and the rare potato chips. And as is my usual visual novel style, I've ended up shipping the love interests with each other more than with the main character.

I love how intense each of them is about their work, and how they each have their quirks. They're very independent, and I don't think many of them would have been drawn together without Rika's influence forming the RFA. I like the intensity and the rough edges, and don't want things to get too sweet too quickly. But the mutual protective impulses are A++.

Jumin and Seven have this pigtail-pulling thing going on over Elizabeth. I really enjoyed how Jumin and Zen's reconciliation played out in Zen's route -- I like them both struggling to understand each other. V and Seven have a very close connection and share a lot of secrets, but there's a difference in authority and control that I see frustrating Seven a lot. Seven and Zen's friendship with mutual caretaking is very nice, with Zen wanting Seven to eat better and Seven helping Zen out in his own not-quite-legal ways. Zen's almost hero-worship of V is interesting in light of the fact that V canonically stalked him to photograph him...

I've finished Zen, Yoosung, Jaehee, and Jumin's routes, and have just started Seven's. I'll be finished with him in about 10 days, so don't worry about avoiding major spoilers about anything ;) I'm really down for whichever route you want to follow if you write canon-era fic. You're also welcome to mix and match events from different routes -- for example, if you have Elizabeth go missing and Zen gets slandered by Echo Girl, while MC hooks up with Jaehee in the background. Follow your inspiration and do whatever works best for your story :D

Note: For the V ships, please don't set the fic while he's still together with Rika. If you're writing canon-era or post-canon fic and want to include the MC, I'm open to any name and appearance for her. (If you want, I can provide a rundown of all the MCs I've played -- but I'm seriously open to name/appearance) Depending on which of my requested ships you're writing, I like her ending up with Jaehee, Zen, or Seven. (or nobody works too!)

  • Prompt 1: Someone, anyone, is wearing cat ears.
  • Prompt 2: Something along the lines of Jumin's canon route, except he's getting neurotically possessive/over-protective over Zen or Seven instead of the MC.
  • Prompt 3: V hires Zen to pose for a sensual, romantic photo shoot. Clothes optional, depending on what you want to write! (...V can also get Seven to pose for a sensual photo shoot too, if you can make it work...)
  • Prompt 4: Something unexpected happens between one of the ships at one of the RFA parties! Could be a hook-up, could be a surprise kiss, could be a drunken confession? Either a pre-canon party, or the Day 11 party at the end of the game? Could be fumbling in a dark corner, or embarrassingly public? Dealer's choice ;)
  • Prompt 5: Jumin needs a guest for a fancy business event. Or Zen needs a guest for a fancy theater event. They ask [other character in ship]. Neither of them is sure if it's a date, but they really really want it to be.
  • Prompt 6: Have fun with the chatroom and messaging format! Flirting over text, sending each other photos, sexting, etc. (Bonus if it's a prelude to meeting up in person after a day or week or so of driving each other crazy)

back to top ^^


Request 5: Yuri!!! on Ice

  • Jean-Jacques Leroy/Yuri Plisetsky
  • Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky

I'm not usually into sports anime. But. I was incredibly into Figure Skating RPF during the Vancouver Olympics, and what I'd heard of YOI sounded slashy, so I thought I'd give it a try. And oh my god, it's everything I ever wanted in a figure skating anime :D

I adore Yuri Plisetsky. (tiny fairy! loves cats! passionate and determined! values his friends and family! will absolutely fuck you up!) I multiship the hell out of him, but particularly the two ships I've requested here. I especially like the teasing, flustered rivalry dynamics with JJ and the idol-turned-rival pining and pursuit with Victor.

Note: If you're writing Victor/Yuri, I'd rather an AU where Victor/Yuuri just never happened -- I don't want them to have been together and then broken up or anything. Victor can still coach Yuuri, of course :)

Also, please no career-ending injuries.

  • Prompt 1: Wagers! In practice, competition, leisure time, whenever. "If I land this jump, you have to do X." "If I beat you in this event, you have to do Y." "Okay, but if you don't, you have to.." Consequences can be sexy (kiss me, blow me, take your shirt off, wear cat ears and a collar for me) or a bit more romantic (go on a date!), depending on ship and what you'd prefer to write or draw :D Longer fic could do a series of escalating wagers, but just one would be perfect for shorter fic!
  • Prompt 2: And this is going back to my baby-fan roots, but I'm a sucker for party game tropes. Spin the bottle, never have I ever, seven minutes in heaven, strip poker -- you know, just casual games between friends ;) Maybe a handful of skaters end up hanging out in one's hotel room after a gala, and then one by one people leave until only two are left? Or they end up making out while everyone else is still there, that works too ;)
  • Prompt 3: For something a bit less lighthearted -- they're all high-level athletes under intense pressure. Exploring the healthy and unhealthy ways they deal with that pressure and stress (alone, or with each other, or both) is very interesting to me.

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite songs! I can't wait to see what you come up with. My requests this year are somewhat narrowly focused: six songs from three albums by two Scottish bands. But one band's synthpop and the other's indie rock, so there's some variety! Good news is that whatever we matched on, it's something I've been obsessed with recently -- I've been cycling through these albums on repeat for, um, probably longer than my neighbors appreciate.

I've given some of my thoughts on each song below, but that's purely for your benefit. I really just want to see where you take this :)

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I've requested fanfic for each song, and I'm pretty much up for anything outside my DNWs here. Literal or more abstract, emotional interpretations are both great for each song. They were also all nominated as songs. If they happen to have music videos, I haven't watched them ;)

I tend to like character-driven fic, heavy on the complex emotions and fraught relationships. If you want to go for something shippy or smutty, I have a slight preference for M/M over other configurations. But I've requested songs that I'd be happy to see interpreted any number of ways. So follow your muse in that regard.

Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Make Them Gold - Chvrches

ListenLyrics

We are made of our smallest thoughts
We are breathing and letting go
We will take the best parts of ourselves
And make them gold

This is quickly becoming my ultimate mood-lifting song. Musically, it's so bright and uplifting. Lyrically, I love the acknowledgement of darkness with the resolve to get through it, and the collaborative coping. The determined optimism.

So, any sort of light in the darkness fic, particularly with characters finding strength in themselves and in each other, would thrill me here. Tenderness, recovery, comfort, two steps forward, one step back.

There are some interesting SFF possibilities hidden in the lyrics. "falling but not alone" could lend itself to a fallen angel type story. "Just stop us falling out of phase / I will be with you in the fray" gets some high-tech or magic combat in there.

Request 2: The Mother We Share - Chvrches

ListenLyrics

Into the night for once, we're the only ones left
I bet you even know, where we could go
And when it all fucks up, you put your head in my hands
It's a souvenir for when you go

A note about Chvrches: they've said in interview that "lyrics making sense" isn't a priority for them. And that The Mother We Share isn't necessarily about incest... but it's not not about incest.

I'm unsure enough about how I feel about M/F and F/F incest that I'm going to say I'd rather not receive that! Just to be safe. That leaves us with: all M/M incest; all platonic sibling relationships; and all non-related relationships with a more metaphorical interpretation of "the mother we share."

I really enjoy the dependence, perhaps co-dependence, the song dwells on. There are reunions and departures, and the choice to help each other. Navigating tension and relief.

With "never cursed your name" and "as old as your omens," I could definitely see some magicky or occult interpretations of the mother. Dark fantasy religions intrigue me. A modern "we're the only ones left" after some party or event also definitely works for me.

back to top ^^

Request 3: Night Sky - Chvrches

ListenLyrics

I can hear you in the overtones
Just an echo of the promise we made
Change the future, we can travel time
Or make us blind so we can never look back

There's a complicated, uneven relationship in here. Which may be over by the end of the song! I'd be especially interested in something heavily drawing from verse 1 and the hook, or something post-verse 2 where they're figuring out next steps or getting back together (whether or not that's a good idea).

I like the contradictions encompassed in being both "the fire in your eyes" and "the cold heart." I like the truths and secrets, and communicating without words.

As always, feel free to latch onto the paranormal or SFF possibilities. "we can travel time," "I'm the night sky." Vampires or other immortals would work really well here.

And the one word, "majesty," down in verse 2 opens up some cool royalty, fealty, loyalty opportunities.

Request 4: Blood Under the Bridge - Frightened Rabbit

Listen 1Listen 2Lyrics

It’s alright it’s alright
It’s just blood under the bridge
Put down the knife and watch the
Blood under the bridge go by.

This song is very enemies to uneasy allies to me. Rivals to allies, enemies to lovers, rivals to lovers. Allies to enemies to lovers. Enemies who've forgotten why they were fighting, or who've found themselves in a confusing hurt/comfort situation. Just, the painful, exhausted transition from opposition to something else.

You could take it in a "fight within an established relationship" sense, especially working from verse 2. I like this line a lot: And realise it’s not the end it’s an uncomfortable pause.

I'm also incredibly interested in some genre fiction-type literal bloodstains and wars. Assassins, elves, fae, heroes and villains, angels and demons. Fantasy, steampunk, paranormal, I'm in.

Request 5: Lump Street - Frightened Rabbit

Listen 1Listen 2Lyrics

He’s a full-grown man, no shoulder to cry on
raised by wolves and they taught him to bite down hard
No locks on the doors no corner to hide in
scars like armour, dead boys eyes

This song has perhaps the clearest setting, characters, and narrative of any of my requests. Lyrics and sound both start out very melancholy in a rough, rundown town, until midway through the music picks up, and by the end, there's a way out and forward.

You're welcome to play it straight, or pick out any one character or element and spin out from there. Set the town in or out of Scotland, in or out of this reality. Switch around the characters' genders. Set the fic in the early, bruised, broken days, or later, when they're building a home.

One request - no literal tongue ripping out, please.

back to top ^^

Request 6: An Otherwise Disappointing Life - Frightened Rabbit

Listen 1Listen 2Lyrics

In an otherwise disappointing life, made right
On an otherwise disappointing night, there’s a fire
In the hollow chapel suffering in silence you’re the choir
that sings this otherwise disappointing life back to life

This album gets a bit darker every time I dig into the lyrics, in a really satisfying way. Because the darker it gets, the better the little accomplishments feel.

I like "the fire" more metaphorically for this song -- a beautiful disaster that the narrator isn't going to stop or walk away from. Because the pain and heat are better than the tepid disappointments. I also like the letting-go of the list towards the end. So the narrator no longer has to dwell on the enumeration.

This line: So lay upon me and push until it’s all forgotten / There are worse ways to lose you sticks out to me as an interesting spot to build from, from an unhealthy coping mechanism sort of relationship standpoint.

I definitely see shipfic from this song, though you could sell me on something intense and platonic too.

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite ships! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mods.

Cheers,

General Preferences

On Genres: I'm seeing the genre tags as a very general indication of my preferences and the vibe of fic I'd like. Feel free to blend genres, or use the tags just as another category of optional "Likes." I picked the genre tags I especially like per fandom to officially request, but in general, here are my thoughts on the genres I'm most interested in:

  • Angst: Go deep, dark, and painful! I do prefer at least ambiguous endings, not completely hopeless.
  • AU - Canon Divergence: I prefer diverging during canon, not pre-canon divergence. (so, "What if Dazai went back to the mafia," but not, "What if Dazai never left the mafia")
  • Canon Style Plot: Missions, fetch quests, hunts, assassination attempts, training arcs -- I like these when they're newly invented, but I also like "canon quest except they fuck," especially for video game fandoms like FFXV.
  • Character Development: This is something I'm mostly interested in mixed into other genres. I really enjoy fic that acknowledges how characters have changed since the start of canon, and how they change in relation to each other.
  • Darkfic: I only officially requested this for TnC, but would also be very down with it for Ardyn/Noct, Ravus/Noct, and Ardyn/Ravus/Noct. In other ships, dark elements are still welcome.
  • Fix-it fic: I like fic that makes my faves not dead, lol.
  • Getting Together: No special notes, I just really like get together fic.
  • Hurt/Comfort: I'm into injured, battered, exhausted, emotionally drained, traumatized, starving, drugged sorts of H/C. Not sickfic/the common cold as much.
  • Interpersonal Drama: I love conflict between characters, especially as a prelude to/complication while getting together. I like problems that can get worked through but not completely erased.
  • Smut: PWP and scenes within or concluding plottier works are both excellent. If you're inclined, a fic with more than one sex scene would thrill me.

Like I said, those are my favorite genres in general! But unless a genre inherently violates one of my DNWs (for example: AU - Modern), you're welcome to blend it in or draw from it.

As for other general preferences... Length-wise, go wherever the story takes you! I'll be just as delighted with something in the eponymous 5k range as with something more in the marathon range. Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction if you want to go there.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. Emotional and physical h/c are both catnip to me, whether it's the focus of the fic or just touches of it in worked in. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

Smut-wise, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom. (Faves would be Chuuya, Noctis, Gaara, and Rin.)(For my non-Chuuya BSD ships, I also kinda prefer Dazai on top. I don't usually have a toppy bicycle, so this is new for me!!)

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

Angst ◦ Getting Together ◦ Hurt/Comfort
Interpersonal Drama ◦ Smut

  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi

The character designs are what first drew me in, but the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked.

Chuuya's so much fun for me. I like fic that keeps his edge, even when indulging in the fantastic whump potential of Corruption. I like him and Dazai being assholes to each other, but coming through when it really, really counts. I'm also a sucker for ridiculous!drunk!Chuuya.

Dazai's this fascinating mix between childish and jaded; he's a great strategist and a terrible mentor. I can see him hooking up or getting into a relationship because he thinks he can use it to his advantage, and then accidentally falling for real.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

Note: I'm caught up with the anime. As of Feb. 15, I've read through chapter 37 of the manga, but I'll definitely be caught up by reveals :)

  • Prompt 1: Any pair getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance, erotica... Basically, it's an in-canon excuse for an AU, which works for me in a way a lot of pure AUs don't.
  • Prompt 2: Any of these ships would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Chuuya in a dress for whatever reason and being Extremely Grumpy about it is really appealing to me. Even if it kind of secretly turns him on, he'd never admit it, especially with Dazai teasing him. Maybe he has to dress up for a *handwave* mission, or he lost a bet...
  • Prompt 4: Bondage, maybe? ;) Seriously any pairing, consensual or dubcon or noncon, before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars... the power dynamics get pretty interesting with all of these ships.
  • Prompt 5: Dazai's completely moved on from the mafia, and he definitely doesn't want anything to do with Chuuya. But when he hears Chuuya has a new partner -- that's not acceptable.

Request 2: Final Fantasy XV

Angst ◦ AU - Canon Divergence ◦ Canon Style Plot
Getting Together ◦ Hurt/Comfort
Interpersonal Drama ◦ Smut

  • Gladiolus Amicitia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ignis/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

Overall, I'm down for a broad range of relationship dynamics. Depending on the time and place, I can see Ardyn and Ravus as more sympathetic or very much not sympathetic, more helpful or more harmful -- depending on how their personal agendas happen to interact with Noct's welfare that day. Gladio's good for fantastic protective loyalty kink and lashing out with stress and frustration. Ignis's weary mentor/guardian thing is great, and he can be snarky but also insightful when needed.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

If you would like to include my chocobo OC, that would utterly delight me. Noct has a white chocobo named Nebula, which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. For Ardyn/Noct, Ravus/Noct, or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct, Ardyn and Ravus shouldn't die either.

Chocobro Ship Prompts

  • Prompt 1: Split the plot goals more equitably. Luna's off taking care of waking the gods and stuff; Noct's job is just to collect his ancestor's weapons and then take care of the Niflheim invasion from a more tactical/military perspective.
  • Prompt 2: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.
  • Prompt 3: After Gladio returns to the party, there's a line about him "making it up to Noctis in there." Fic about him making it up to Noct sexually, or emotionally reassuring him he'll always be there.
  • Prompt 4: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 5: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender with Gladio or Ignis, or they fuck in a gondola, or things get a lil wild at the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. ("if I beat you at Chocobo racing you have to do whatever I say tonight" y/y??)
  • Prompt 6: After Ignis goes blind, he and Noct get reacquainted through touch. Or, after Luna dies and Ignis goes blind, Gladio and Noctis try working out their scared-hurt-angry feelings through training. Or, at a less fraught point of canon, sparring gets heated anyway.
  • Prompt 7: Noct and Ignis or Noct and Gladio get separated from the other chocobros out in the wilderness (without phones? idk), and have to trek across the countryside to get to civilization (and phones) in order to reunite.

Enemies to ???? Ship Prompts

  • Prompt 1: If Noct asks to ride along with Ardyn, Ardyn answers, "You might find the cab fare to be more than you bargained for." So, I'd love fic or art of Ardyn letting Noct ride along after all, and collecting that cab fare.
  • Prompt 2: What happens during the "several days later" at the start of chapter 5, when Ardyn has rescued them from Titan?
  • Prompt 3: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 4: Romantic date night in Altissia! Ardyn dubcon wines and dines Noctis -- or Ravus takes the opportunity to "negotiate" with Noctis... Or both. Both is good.
  • Prompt 5: Canon divergence -- either from the signing of the treaty or another point -- Noct ends up as an honored guest/hostage at Niflheim's court. Cue decadent banquets, unwanted attention, and giving in to distraction. Ardyn being his creepy self. For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)
  • Prompt 6: Oh no, Luna's gone missing. Noctis will just have to marry Ravus instead.
  • Prompt 7: Ardyn decides he wants to rule the world, but he doesn't want to rule alone. Ardyn/Noct or Ardyn/Ravus/Noct all work very well here.
  • Prompt 8: Instead of being in the crystal or whatever for ten years, Noctis is held captive by Ardyn for one year.

Request 3: Naruto

Angst ◦ Canon Style Plot ◦ Getting Together
Hurt/Comfort ◦ Interpersonal Drama ◦ Smut

  • Kakashi/Gaara
  • Kankurou/Gaara
  • Naruto/Gaara

So apparently I didn't skip my Naruto phase. I just delayed it. We can blame the Crunchyroll free trial I forgot to cancel. I had to make the most of my accidental subcription somehow.

The melodrama and tragedy and humor and character designs and child soldiers and intense weird relationships of various flavors and 500 onsen episodes all really work for me. Looking at my requests, you may be able to discern my favorite character.

I adore him, murderously poor coping skills and all. I like fic that taps into vulnerabilities without handwaving the whole ruthless child murderer backstory thing. Explore how far he's grown emotionally, and how far he still has to go.

With Naruto, I love how deeply invested they are in each other. The saving-Gaara arc was extremely good to me. (I wonder if anyone told Gaara how much Naruto cried over him?) As of the point I've gotten to, they've mostly only seen each other in very high-stakes situations -- it would be interesting to how they interact in more casual scenarios. Getting to know each other, etc.

I also started hardcore shipping Kankurou with Gaara during the saving-Gaara arc. He was just so intense about going after him -- and standing up for him when the rest of the council didn't want to rescue him. I liked the bits we got about Kankurou clearing out potential threats when Gaara became Kazekage. He and Temari both became Gaara's staunchest supporters, after being basically on "try not to let him murder people" duty when we first met them. I want to see that reliance and affection taken to the next level.

I'll confess that Kakashi/Gaara started as "well, I fucking love Gaara, and I fucking love Kakashi, so..." But I am seriously down for however you want to take this. They could work surprisingly well together, or be a total trainwreck. They've both got violent, lonely pasts, and various flavors of daddy issues. I'm very interested in them having to work together professionally, and taking things from there.

Note: I will have gotten through at least Shippuden episode 175 by reveals, because my friend told me I should :) And don't kill me, but I'd prefer no spoilers for future events. Incorporating information about backstories that's revealed later in the anime/manga is fine, but not "what happens next in the narrative present." I hope that makes sense.

  • Prompt 1: Someone is trying to assassinate Gaara! So the assassins must be stopped. And Gaara has to be protected, even though he'd rather just deal with them on his own -- people are sensitive about that after he's already been kidnapped and murdered once. Feel free to take this into political intrigue or action, or just focus on the iddy hurt/comfort and bodyguarding elements. (Or all of it. All of it is good.)
  • Prompt 2: Anything dealing with Gaara adjusting to life post-Shukaku would make me very, very happy. Figuring out what elements of him were the demon's influence, and what was him all along. Any physical differences in stamina or sensation. Actually sleeping. Dealing with feelings and connections when he's used to isolation.
  • Prompt 3: Any sex pollen/aphrodisiac scenario you can think of, I'm there. Enemy jutsu has everyone horny? Someone spiked the punch at the diplomatic banquet? Gaara has a collection of succulents and one of them has Special Properties? The wildlife just gets weird sometimes? Bonus points if Gaara loses his virginity in the most overwhelming way possible.

Request 4: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

Angst ◦ AU - Canon Divergence ◦ Darkfic
Getting Together ◦ Hurt/Comfort
Interpersonal Drama ◦ Smut

  • Shiki/Rin

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

Canon Acquisition Note: I used this resource post to download the game. (fair warning, the post is from 2014, so I'm unsure whether those tutorials work for newer systems. But it should be a good starting point.) If you're into super grimdark kinky BL visual novels, this might be your cup of tea -- and feel free to reach out if you want content warnings about anything :) This goes for anyone interested, whether or not you're considering writing it.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

shadow_lover: (Default)


Dear Smut Swapper,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite ships and kinks! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

I also put quite a bit of thought (and color-coded spreadsheets...) into narrowing down my kink lists per fandom. So, I'm way more invested in getting something that fits "Requested Ship + Requested Kink" than in something that matches a prompt but sidelines the kink. I get very excited about this exchange :D

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I've requested both fic and art for all of my ships.

For fic:

I like all lengths, so go wherever the story takes you. A steamy snapshot? Awesome! Slowburn longfic? Totally rad! Past and present tense are both cool too. I'd be super into interactive fiction (Choose Your Own Porn, y/y?).

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are A++! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, though, are not my thing.)

I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. But for on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (that would be Chuuya, Noctis, Ritsuka, Gaara, Rin, and Yuri)(For my non-Chuuya BSD ships, I also kinda prefer Dazai on top. I don't usually have a toppy bicycle, so this is new for me!! Atsushi and Akutagawa can go any damn way they like).

For art:

I like all sorts of mediums. I'm interested in purposeful color schemes, which could be vibrant or restrained or even stark black and white -- something that fits your vision for the request. I like dynamic pieces, but also captured moments of stillness. I like emotion, tension, connection, hurt, and tenderness. I prefer identifiable figures instead of abstract pieces.

As a general prompt: I would love to see any of my ships reimagined as tarot cards. Either representing a specific existing card, or just in a symbolic card-like design.

Note -- I love art, but I'm not an artist myself. Please feel welcome to contact me through the mod if you need me to give more or different information :) I think most of my prompts lend themselves to visual interpretations of specific scenes or situations; for those that might not, I've tried to include separate visual notes.

Yes, Please!

Requests 1-2: Bungou Stray Dogs

The character designs are what first drew me in, and I actually made a pixiv account just so I could look for more BSD fanart. I've been cycling through BSD wallpapers on my phone for the past two months. But after the character designs, the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked -- as well as the darkness.

Chuuya's so much fun for me. I like fic that keeps his edge, even when indulging in the fantastic whump potential of Corruption. I like him and Dazai being assholes to each other, but coming through when it really, really counts. I'm also a sucker for ridiculous!drunk!Chuuya.

Dazai's this fascinating mix between childish and jaded; he's a great strategist and a terrible mentor. I can see him hooking up or getting into a relationship because he thinks he can use it to his advantage, and then accidentally falling for real. I like him manipulative.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

Note: I'm caught up with the anime. As of Feb. 11, I've read through chapter 37 of the manga, but I'll definitely be caught up by reveals :)

  • Prompt 1: Dazai's completely moved on from the mafia, and he definitely doesn't want anything to do with Chuuya. But when he hears Chuuya has a new partner -- that's not acceptable.
  • Prompt 2: They're on a mission -- either during Dazai's mafia days, or forced to work together in another Mafia/Agency alliance mission -- and Chuuya gets unexpectedly affected by their target's ability. Maybe it's sex pollen, maybe he suddenly has oversensitive cat ears, maybe he's unnaturally sleepy. And whether Dazai's unable to touch the ability user in time to negate the ability, or whether he's perversely unwilling to is up to you :D
  • Prompt 3: Chuuya in a dress for whatever reason and being Extremely Grumpy about it is really appealing to me. Even if it kind of secretly turns him on, he'd never admit it, especially with Dazai teasing him. The art prompt's pretty obvious, there; fic-wise, maybe he has to dress up for a *handwave* mission, or he lost a bet...

  • Prompt 1: Any pair getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance, erotica... Would be a great excuse for art with any sort of costume.
  • Prompt 2: Any of these ships would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Bondage, maybe? ;) Seriously any pairing, art or fic, consensual or dubcon or noncon, before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars... the power dynamics get pretty interesting with all of these ships.

Requests 3-4: Final Fantasy XV

I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :( I'm also not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

Overall, I'm down for a broad range of relationship dynamics. Depending on the time and place, I can see Ardyn and Ravus as more sympathetic or very much not sympathetic, more helpful or more harmful -- depending on how their personal agendas happen to interact with Noct's welfare that day. Gladio's good for fantastic protective loyalty kink and lashing out with stress and frustration. Ignis's weary mentor/guardian thing is great, and he can be snarky but also insightful when needed.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

For most of my kinks, I'm into "excellent or terrible things happening to Noct." So generally I want him in the corset, or him getting classically conditioned, or him being a catboy. Lol.

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. And for Ardyn/Noct and Ravus/Noct, Ardyn and Ravus shouldn't die either.

  • Prompt 3: After Gladio returns to the party, there's a line about him "making it up to Noctis in there." Fic about him making it up to Noct sexually, or emotionally reassuring him he'll always be there.
  • Prompt 4: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 5: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender with Gladio or Ignis, or they fuck in a gondola, or things get a lil wild at the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. ("if I beat you at Chocobo racing you have to do whatever I say tonight" y/y??)

Cue decadent banquets, unwanted attention, and giving in to distraction. Ardyn being his creepy self. "Dancing" could work well here. For something less noncon/dubcon, Ravus and Noct could find some commonality in both being under Niflheim's thumb. (Or Ravus can just take out his own frustrations on Noct as a safe target too. I'm flexible.)

Request 5: Loveless

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes you could sell me on. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :) In terms of power dynamics, I'm really interested in Soubi's desire/need to submit, and how that meshes very messily with the fact that in this relationship, he's still the adult putting his leash in Ritsuka's hand. Ritsuka really isn't equipped to deal with Soubi's issues (and neither, of course, is Soubi).

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

In a situation with the three of them -- Seimei is very cold, but he does treat Ritsuka as exceptional. And he's happy to use Soubi and Ritsuka against each other.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Could also work for bad-wrong hurt/comfort with Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? Would work for easily Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi -- or even Soubi/Ritsuka, with them finding companionship in Seimei's shadow.
  • Prompt 3: Art-wise, there's a lot of room for great imagery in the battle system! With all the magic & bondage going around.

Request 6: Naruto

So apparently I didn't skip my Naruto phase. I just delayed it. We can blame the Crunchyroll free trial I forgot to cancel. I had to make the most of my accidental subcription somehow.

The melodrama and tragedy and humor and character designs and child soldiers and intense weird relationships of various flavors and 500 onsen episodes all really work for me. Looking at my requests, you may be able to discern my favorite character.

I adore him, murderously poor coping skills and all. I like fic that taps into vulnerabilities without handwaving the whole ruthless child murderer backstory thing. Explore how far he's grown emotionally, and how far he still has to go.

And like, have someone fuck him for days.

With Naruto, I love how deeply invested they are in each other. The saving-Gaara arc was extremely good to me. (I wonder if anyone told Gaara how much Naruto cried over him?) As of the point I've gotten to, they've mostly only seen each other in very high-stakes situations -- it would be interesting to how they interact in more casual scenarios. Getting to know each other, etc.

I also started hardcore shipping Kankurou with Gaara during the saving-Gaara arc. He was just so intense about going after him -- and standing up for him when the rest of the council didn't want to rescue him. I liked the bits we got about Kankurou clearing out potential threats when Gaara became Kazekage. He and Temari both became Gaara's staunchest supporters, after being basically on "try not to let him murder people" duty when we first met them. Sooo now of course I want to see Kankurou taking care of Gaara in other ways too...

I'll confess that Kakashi/Gaara started as "well, I fucking love Gaara, and I fucking love Kakashi, so..." But I am seriously down for however you want to take this. They could work surprisingly well together, or be a total trainwreck. They've both got violent, lonely pasts, and various flavors of daddy issues. An unexpected one-night or one-mission stand would be A+. Gaara's visiting Konoha, goes up to sit on a roof and angst, oops it's Kakashi's roof, so Kakashi pops up to make sure he isn't murdering anyone... etc. And I'm particularly into experienced/inexperienced here.

Note: I will have gotten through at least Shippuden episode 175 by reveals, because my friend told me I should :) And don't kill me, but I'd prefer no spoilers for future events. Incorporating information about backstories that's revealed later in the anime/manga is fine, but not "what happens next in the narrative present." I hope that makes sense.

  • Prompt 1: Training goes very, very wrong.... or very, very right, depending on your perspective ;) Maybe Naruto's trying out a mysterious new jutsu and it has unintended side-effects. Or he pins Gaara down with his clones... Maybe Gaara's struggling post-resurrection and is training privately with Kankurou - with, of course, some hands-on assistance. (or he thinks he hurts Kankurou badly and panics, and then panics about panicking? lol) (Gaara can get hurt too. That is always an option.) Or Gaara's training while visiting Konoha, and Kakashi's been assigned to escort him or spy on him. Or however you want to contrive things.
  • Prompt 2: Anything dealing with Gaara adjusting to life post-Shukaku would make me very, very happy. Figuring out what elements of him were the demon's influence, and what was him all along. Any physical differences in stamina or sensation. Actually sleeping. Dealing with feelings and connections when he's used to isolation. In an A/B/O verse, this could be combined with the unexpected onset of heats for some extra-overwhelming urges... Hint: a lot of "how Gaara deals" should be sex.
  • Prompt 3: Any sex pollen/aphrodisiac scenario you can think of, I'm there. Enemy jutsu has everyone horny? Someone spiked the punch at the diplomatic banquet? Gaara has a collection of succulents and one of them has Special Properties? The wildlife just gets weird sometimes? Bonus points if Gaara loses his virginity in the most overwhelming way possible.
  • Prompt 4: Visual things I particularly like, though they could be adapted to fic too: Rituals, drawing seals on each other, getting the elements involved, shadow clones.

Request 7: Raven Cycle

That awkward moment when you realize your favorite character has been dead the whole time.... haha. That's okay! We can get through this! Death is no obstacle to shipping ;)

I'm late to the party here -- I only read the books in September 2016. Which coincided with my tarot interest, so it was a delightful bonus to find all of that worked into the story. I'd particularly love tarot-inspired art for these ships.

I'm very into liminal states for these characters. Noah, of course, between life and death; Ronan between dreaming and waking; Adam between Cabeswater's will and his own; Gansey between myth and truth, and life and death as well. There's a lot to dig into thematically with how they each relate to each other.

Note: For Noah/Gansey, just make Blue and Gansey platonic in that universe :)

  • Prompt 1: There's a lot that Noah didn't get around to doing while he's alive. His more-than-just-a-friend/boyfriend/fuck-buddy helps him check things off the list anyway.
  • Prompt 2: Some sort of magical ritual to bring Noah back to life. Lots of options: true love's kiss is a classic. Or sex magic. (true love's dick?) To go to a darker place, maybe Ronan or Adam is desperately driven enough to kill one of the villains in exchange for Noah.
  • Prompt 2.5: Just one sex ritual isn't enough! Per this subthread on FFA.
  • Prompt 3: I guess this is less a completely separate prompt and more a follow-up to the previous, but -- something focusing on, if Noah's brought back, how he copes with it. What's it like to breathe and sleep and live again? To really touch people? Does he worry that they won't like the real-live-Noah as much as the dead Noah they got to know?

Request 8: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

Canon Acquisition Note: I used this resource post to download the game. (fair warning, the post is from 2014, so I'm unsure whether those tutorials work for newer systems. But it should be a good starting point.) If you're into super grimdark kinky BL visual novels, this might be your cup of tea -- and feel free to reach out if you want content warnings about anything :) This goes for anyone interested, whether or not you're considering writing or drawing it.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 9: Yuri!!! on Ice

I'm not usually into sports anime. But. I was incredibly into Figure Skating RPF during the Vancouver Olympics, and what I'd heard of YOI sounded slashy, so I thought I'd give it a try. And oh my god, it's everything I ever wanted in a figure skating anime :D

I adore Yuri Plisetsky. (tiny fairy! loves cats! passionate and determined! values his friends and family! will absolutely fuck you up!) I multiship the hell out of him, but particularly the three ships I've requested here. I like the teasing, flustered rivalry dynamics with JJ; the unexpected friends-to-lovers possibilities with Otabek; the idol-turned-rival pining and pursuit with Victor.

Note: If you're writing Victor/Yuri, I'd rather an AU where Victor/Yuuri just never happened -- I don't want them to have been together and then broken up or anything. Victor can still coach Yuuri, of course :)

Also, please no career-ending injuries.

  • Prompt 1: Wagers! In practice, competition, leisure time, whenever. "If I land this jump, you have to do X." "If I beat you in this event, you have to do Y." "Okay, but if you don't, you have to.." Consequences can be sexy (kiss me, blow me, take your shirt off, wear cat ears and a collar for me) or a bit more romantic (go on a date!), depending on ship and what you'd prefer to write or draw :D Longer fic could do a series of escalating wagers, but just one would be perfect for shorter fic!
  • Prompt 2: And this is going back to my baby-fan roots, but I'm a sucker for party game tropes. Spin the bottle, never have I ever, seven minutes in heaven, strip poker -- you know, just casual games between friends ;) Maybe a handful of skaters end up hanging out in one's hotel room after a gala, and then one by one people leave until only two are left? Or they end up making out while everyone else is still there, that works too ;)
  • Prompt 3: For something a bit less lighthearted -- they're all high-level athletes under intense pressure. Exploring the healthy and unhealthy ways they deal with that pressure and stress (alone, or with each other, or both) is very interesting to me.

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Chocolatier,

Thank you for offering one or more of my favorite ships! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my Likes, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod.

Happy Valentine's Day,

General Preferences

I've requested both fic and art for all of my ships, and for both media I'm happy with any rating from General Audiences to Explicit.

For fic:

I like all lengths, so go wherever the story takes you. Three connected drabbles? Awesome! Slowburn longfic? Totally rad! Past and present tense are both cool too.

More than anything else, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie. I also tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure domestic fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. (Depending on the ship, love and tenderness are good! Picking out curtains and crying through a proposal, not my thing)

If you want to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off. But for on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (that would be Chuuya, Laurent, Noctis, Ritsuka, Page of Swords, Rin, and Yuri)(there are a few ships without any of those characters - for those, I don't have a preference :D). My Smut Swap letter also gives a good overview of more specific kinks I'm into.

For art:

I like all sorts of mediums. I'm interested in very purposeful color schemes, which could be vibrant or restrained or even stark black and white -- something that fits your vision for the request. I like dynamic pieces, but also captured moments of stillness. I like emotion, tension, connection, hurt, and tenderness. I prefer identifiable figures instead of abstract pieces.

As a general prompt: I would love to see any of my ships reimagined as tarot cards (...except maybe my Night Sun requests? haha). Either representing a specific existing card, or just in a symbolic card-like design.

Note -- I don't usually request art, so please feel welcome to contact me through the mod if you need me to give more or different information :) I think most of my prompts lend themselves to visual interpretations of specific scenes or situations; for those that might not, I've tried to include separate visual notes.

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Nakajima Atsushi
  • Akutagawa Ryuunosuke/Dazai Osamu
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya
  • Dazai Osamu/Nakajima Atsushi

The character designs are what first drew me in, and I actually made a pixiv account just so I could look for more BSD fanart. I've been cycling through BSD wallpapers on my phone for the past month. But after the character designs, the humor and complicated relationships and insane slash potential kept me hooked.

Chuuya's so much fun for me. I like fic that keeps his edge, even when indulging in the fantastic whump potential of Corruption. I like him and Dazai being assholes to each other, but also coming through when it really, really counts. I'm also a sucker for ridiculous!drunk!Chuuya.

Dazai's this fascinating mix between childish and jaded; he's a great strategist and a terrible mentor. I can see him hooking up or getting into a relationship because he thinks he can use it to his advantage, and then accidentally falling for real.

I like the vulnerability beneath Akutagawa's violence -- he's terrible at hiding his desperation to please, and he doesn't cope well with people who can match his power. His moments of restraint become significant.

Atsushi <3 In some ways he's a bit of an inverse of Akutagawa -- strength hiding beneath insecurity. I love his determination and conviction, but his anxiety's also still a big obstacle.

Note: I'm only caught up with the anime -- I started the manga, but haven't gotten very far in it yet. I don't mind spoilers, though.

  • Prompt 1: Any pair getting trapped in one of Poe's books! Accidentally or by design. The genre's up to you -- mystery, fairy tale, historical fiction, romance... Would be a great excuse for art with any sort of costume.
  • Prompt 2: Any of these ships would work great/terribly locked in a closet or trapped in a cabin in a snowstorm. Maybe one or both is also injured, for bonus H/C. Feel free to mix and match bickering, resentment, snark, tender care-taking, hatesex, cuddling for warmth, blatant seduction, sex pollen, or painful confessions, as appropriate for the ship or your own sensibilities.
  • Prompt 3: Chuuya in a dress for whatever reason and being Extremely Grumpy about it is really appealing to me. Even if it kind of secretly turns him on, he'd never admit it, especially with Dazai teasing him. The art prompt's pretty obvious, there; fic-wise, maybe he has to dress up for a *handwave* mission, or he lost a bet...
  • Prompt 4: Bondage, maybe? ;) Art or fic, sexual or non-sexual, consensual or dubcon or noncon. Before or after Dazai leaves the mafia. Using Rashoumon for bondage is A++, or bandages, but classic manacles are great too, as are collars... the power dynamics get pretty interesting with all of these ships.

Request 2: Captive Prince

  • Damen/Laurent

Confession time: I'm still in OTP hell here. I love how they find strength through sharing their vulnerabilities with each other. I love how they each think the other is so amazing. I love when they surprise each other. I love how complicated they are, as individuals and as a pair. Laurent isn't a nice person, but he can be good. Damen isn't cunning, but once he's looking, he sees the truth in things and in people.

I'm good with get-together or established relationship for these two. Even though they're together at the end of the books, they're still figuring out how they work. Kinks I really like for them include A/B/O, dirty talk, courtship, praise kink, hand kink, and sharing body heat.

I also enjoy Pacat's prose; pastiche would be optional but delightful.

Note: For post-canon fic, I prefer Damen and Laurent to be exclusive. No marrying other people, no having babies with other people. Just ignore the whole 'heir' consideration altogether, please.

  • Prompt 1: Some sort of post-Kings Rising celebration! Could be a quiet get-together with close friends, or a grand masquerade/ball/feast in either nation to boost morale. How do Laurent and Damen interact differently with everyone now? With each other? Would be a great opportunity for clothing porn, dressing or undressing, dancing, sneaking off onto secluded balconies to catch a breath (or a kiss).
  • Prompt 2: Getting through an assassination attempt on either of them, either during or after canon. Hurt/comfort would fit well here (injury, poison, aphrodisiac...). I'm particularly enamored with the idea of Laurent surviving an assassination attempt on his own, and only letting Damen know afterwards (maybe when Damen notices any injuries). But I'd be thrilled with however you want to take it :)
  • Prompt 3: Damen and Laurent take a break for like a week-long honeymoon of nonstop sex and cuddling. Or a briefer missing-scene break somewhere along the campaign? Maybe one of them is pushing themselves too hard in the aftermath and the other drags them off to their room to force them to take a break.

Request 3: Final Fantasy XV

  • Gladiolus Amicitia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ignis Scientia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ardyn Izunia/Noctis Lucis Caelum
  • Ravus Nox Fleuret/Noctis Lucis Caelum

Okay, so. I literally just finished playing, and I'm several varieties of stunned. I don't know if I've ever been so simultaneously thrilled and shattered by a canon. Hopefully you're on board for Noctis Lives AUs, or things set mid-game that wouldn't contradict a Noctis Lives AU, because :(

I also am not really a fan of 10-year time skips in general, and it didn't work for me here. Again, mid-game stuff works! Or if you're able to eliminate or reduce the time skip to one year, that would be fantastic.

Overall, I'm down for a broad range of relationship dynamics. Depending on the time and place, I can see Ardyn and Ravus as more sympathetic or very much not sympathetic, more helpful or more harmful -- depending on how their personal agendas happen to interact with Noct's welfare that day. Gladio's good for fantastic protective loyalty kink and lashing out with stress and frustration. Ignis's weary mentor/guardian thing is great, and he can be snarky but also insightful when needed.

And then Noct <3 He struggles so much with just about everything, and I'm personally offended nobody hugged him in-game. He had so much to grieve for, and so little time and space to recover, and he cared so much about people. All the manhandling was great, though, whether protective or angry or bad-touch...

This section has more prompts than my other fandoms because I was taking notes while I played! And I haven't had a chance to look at existing fanworks at all, so I have no idea what's been done before.

Note: Noctis shouldn't die. And for Ardyn/Noct and Ravus/Noct, Ardyn and Ravus shouldn't die either.

  • Prompt 1: Noct gets fucked over the hood of the Regalia.
  • Prompt 2: There are two great "huddling for warmth" opportunities that stuck out to me! The first was the "sword in the waterfall" quest, in the super cold cave system. The second was on the train later in the game, before or after they encounter the Glacian.
  • Prompt 3: If Noct asks to ride along with Ardyn, Ardyn answers, "You might find the cab fare to be more than you bargained for." So, I'd love fic or art of Ardyn letting Noct ride along after all, and collecting that cab fare.
  • Prompt 4: What happens during the "several days later" at the start of chapter 5, when Ardyn has rescued them from Titan?
  • Prompt 5: After Gladio returns to the party, there's a line about him "making it up to Noctis in there." Fic about him making it up to Noct sexually, or emotionally reassuring him he'll always be there.
  • Prompt 6: Noct has a nightmare. H/C or more hurt ensues.
  • Prompt 7: Romantic date night in Altissia! Could be something surprisingly tender with Gladio or Ignis -- or Ardyn dubcon wines and dines Noctis -- or Ravus takes the opportunity to "negotiate" with Noctis...
  • Prompt 8: Noctis gets separated from his friends, and winds up in Ravus's hands, either as a prisoner or as a sheltered guest.
  • Prompt 9: After Ignis goes blind, he and Noct get reacquainted through touch.
  • Prompt 10: Or, after Luna dies and Ignis goes blind, Gladio and Noctis try working out their scared-hurt-angry feelings through training. Or, at a less fraught point of canon, sparring gets heated anyway ;)
  • Prompt 11: Instead of being in the crystal or whatever for ten years, Noctis is held captive by Ardyn for one year.
  • Prompt 12: Art of any of the characters riding chocobos together or just standing near chocobos would be amazing. Even Ardyn or Ravus. ...If you want to include my chocobo OC, I made Noctis's chocobo a white chocobo named Nebula which is google translate Latin for "Cloud."

Request 4: Loveless

  • Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka
  • Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

I really like the cat ears, but am also down for fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on-screen. (I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out or over-the-clothes bad-touching from Seimei.)

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes you could sell me on. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :)

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Could also work for bad-wrong hurt/comfort with Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi.
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? Would work for easily Seimei/Ritsuka or Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi -- or even Soubi/Ritsuka, with them finding companionship in Seimei's shadow.
  • Prompt 3: Art-wise, there's a lot of room for great imagery in the battle system! With all the magic & bondage going around.

Request 5: Night Sun Tarot Deck

  • Knight of Wands/Page of Swords
  • Knight of Wands/Three of Pentacles
  • Page of Swords/Three of Pentacles
  • Knight of Wands/Page of Swords/Three of Pentacles

Brief intro to the canon: I recently acquired the Night Sun Tarot, and I'm a bit obsessed. It's an intricate, intense deck. So many of the cards lend themselves to narratives, either on their own or in relation to other cards. There’s a lot of continuity; for example, the three figures in The Lovers are also The Empress, The Emperor, and The Hermit.

The reviews at The Invisible Muse and benebell wen highlight a lot of what drew me to the deck, and they have pictures of most of the cards! I’ve also linked images of my requested cards below, and typed up the “suggested meanings” for each from the Night Sun Tarot’s Little White Book (LWB). I’m sorry if the pictures aren’t great, I can't get my scanner to work :P

The scope of canon is up to you. You can base fic solely on the images of my requested cards; you can use the imagery in the entire deck + the hierarchical structure of tarot for worldbuilding; you can use the traditional meanings of various cards to develop characterization.

Page of Swords [image]

I’m fascinated by how he’s just staring out. He’s so still and focused. What’s he doing out there without shoes? Why is he covering his mouth? It almost looks like he’s been hit, or he’s trying to stay quiet. Also I dig his cape.

LWB Notes: Intellectual centre. Air. Perseverance, observation, prudence, hesitation, unforeseen events. (Pages in general – uncertainty between actions and stagnation, a path towards maturity, gestation.)

Knight of Wands [image]

This is such an intense card. It’s simpler than others, but so dramatic. (Depending on your screen, it might not show as well, but the colors are very vivid in person.) He's the only one in his entire suit actively wielding a flaming wand. He illuminates a dark space even as he himself appears almost formed from shadows.

LWB Notes: Creative/sexual centre. Fire. Adventurer, channeled instinct, departure, breaking, postponement. (Knights in general – new dimension, passage, fervor.)

Three of Pentacles [image]

I’m not quite sure what exactly the Three of Pentacles is doing here (purposeful gesture and intense expression leads to circles behind a cube inside a triangle inside three pentacle coins? Witchcraft!!) but I’d love to find out. But seriously, I'm intrigued by how strong the emotional/human element and the sacred geometry elements both are in this card.

LWB Notes: Material Centre. Earth. Expansion, success, perseverance, immaturity, incapacity. (Threes in general – action, creativity, first step without a precise direction, changeability.)

  • Prompt 1: As an "observer," and with so much space around him, I see the Page of Swords as someone who stays on the edges of things. A witness. It could be interesting to push him into involvement instead of just observation. Maybe he's the last survivor of the group he was with, and has to find new allies (Knight of Wands and/or Three of Pentacles) to carry out his mission. Maybe they were thrown together on the quest in the first place. Maybe the page is carrying a message and something goes wrong -- he's taken captive by the Knight of Wands, or walks in on whatever geometric magic Three of Pentacles is concocting.
  • Prompt 2: The Knight of Wands is a natural adventurer -- I'm interested in situations where he might be constrained. Maybe he's part of a delegation to the Court of Swords or Pentacles and has to be on his best behavior during negotiations -- where he meets the Page of Swords and/or the Three of Pentacles. Or maybe in some sort of relationship, there's tension between his own passion and the other's less reckless/adventurous nature.
  • Prompt 3: The Three of Pentacles can represent teamwork and competence. I envision the Night Sun world with some conflict & tension between the four different suits -- I'd love to see the Three of Pentacles having to work together with the Page of Swords and/or the Knight of Wands even though they're from different factions. Enemies to lovers, enemies to friends, enemies to uneasy allies, it's all good.

Request 6: Raven Cycle

  • Noah Czerny/Richard Gansey III
  • Noah Czerny/Ronan Lynch
  • Noah Czerny/Adam Parrish

That awkward moment when you realize your favorite character has been dead the whole time.... haha. That's okay! We can get through this! Death is no obstacle to shipping ;)

I'm late to the party here -- I only read the books in September 2016. Which coincided with my tarot interest, so it was a delightful bonus to find all of that worked into the story. I'd particularly love tarot-inspired art for these ships.

I'm very into liminal states for these characters. Noah, of course, between life and death; Ronan between dreaming and waking; Adam between Cabeswater's will and his own; Gansey between myth and truth, and life and death as well. There's a lot to dig into thematically with how they each relate to each other.

Note: For Noah/Gansey, just make Blue and Gansey platonic in that universe :)

  • Prompt 1: There's a lot that Noah didn't get around to doing while he's alive. His more-than-just-a-friend/boyfriend/fuck-buddy helps him check things off the list anyway.
  • Prompt 2: Some sort of magical ritual to bring Noah back to life. Lots of options: true love's kiss is a classic. Or sex magic. (true love's dick?) To go to a darker place, maybe Ronan or Adam is desperately driven enough to kill one of the villains in exchange for Noah.
  • Prompt 2.5: Just one sex ritual isn't enough! Per this subthread on FFA.
  • Prompt 3: I guess this is less a completely separate prompt and more a follow-up to the previous, but -- something focusing on, if Noah's brought back, how he copes with it. What's it like to breathe and sleep and live again? To really touch people? Does he worry that they won't like the real-live-Noah as much as the dead Noah they got to know?

Request 7: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

  • Rin/Shiki

Everyone in Togainu no Chi is driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

Note: Rin’s age is vague enough that I don’t want any smut set pre-game.

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 8: Yuri!!! on Ice

  • Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky
  • Jean-Jacques Leroy/Yuri Plisetsky
  • Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky

I'm not usually into sports anime. But. I was incredibly into Figure Skating RPF during the Vancouver Olympics, and what I'd heard of YOI sounded slashy, so I thought I'd give it a try. And oh my god, it's everything I ever wanted in a figure skating anime :D

I adore Yuri Plisetsky. (tiny fairy! loves cats! passionate and determined! values his friends and family! will absolutely fuck you up!) I multiship the hell out of him, but particularly the three ships I've requested here. I like the teasing, flustered rivalry dynamics with JJ; the unexpected friends-to-lovers possibilities with Otabek; the idol-turned-rival pining and pursuit with Victor.

Note: If you're writing Victor/Yuri, I'd rather an AU where Victor/Yuuri just never happened -- I don't want them to have been together and then broken up or anything. Victor can still coach Yuuri, of course :)

  • Prompt 1: Wagers! In practice, competition, leisure time, whenever. "If I land this jump, you have to do X." "If I beat you in this event, you have to do Y." "Okay, but if you don't, you have to.." Consequences can be sexy (kiss me, blow me, take your shirt off, wear cat ears and a collar for me) or a bit more romantic (go on a date!), depending on ship and what you'd prefer to write or draw :D Longer fic could do a series of escalating wagers, but just one would be perfect for shorter fic!
  • Prompt 2: And this is going back to my baby-fan roots, but I'm a sucker for party game tropes. Spin the bottle, never have I ever, seven minutes in heaven, strip poker -- you know, just casual games between friends ;) Maybe a handful of skaters end up hanging out in one's hotel room after a gala, and then one by one people leave until only two are left? Or they end up making out while everyone else is still there, that works too ;)
  • Prompt 3: For art, pairs skating is a fave visual trope for me, especially with coordinated costumes :D Yuri making the other person dress up in animal print would be excellent too.

Dear Writer,

Thank you for offering some of my very favorite characters! I'm excited to share the small fandom love, and I can't to see what you come up with. As long as you use a Like or two and avoid my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my general preferences, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mods.

Happy Yuletide,
shadow_lover

P.S. DNW list tweaked on Nov. 17.

General Preferences

I like all lengths, so go wherever the Yuletide spirit takes you. Past and present tense are both cool too, as is any rating from General Audience to Explicit.

I'm primarily a slash fan and I've listed my preferred ships for each canon. However, I've requested sets of characters whose dynamics interest me beyond shipfic, so don't worry if things head in more of a gen direction :)

For shipfic, I tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

If you want to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off –- all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (that would be Laurent, Page of Swords, Rin, and Armand). My Smut Swap letter also gives a good overview of more specific kinks I'm into; many of the characters overlap, and I'm still into everything listed there.

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Captive Prince

Damen, Laurent

Confession time: I'm still in OTP hell here. I love how they find strength through sharing their vulnerabilities with each other. I love how they each think the other is so amazing. I love when they surprise each other. I love how complicated they are, as individuals and as a pair. Laurent isn't a nice person, but he can be good. Damen isn't cunning, but once he's looking, he sees the truth in things and in people.

I'm good with get-together or established relationship for these two. Even though they're together at the end of the books, they're still figuring out how they work.

I really enjoy Pacat's prose; pastiche would be optional but delightful.

Ship: Damen/Laurent

Note: For post-canon fic, I prefer Damen and Laurent to be exclusive and together, even if you opt not to focus on their relationship. No marrying other people, no having babies with other people. Just ignore the whole 'heir' consideration altogether, please.

  • Prompt 1: Some sort of post-Kings Rising celebration! Could be a quiet, intimate get-together with close friends, or a grand masquerade/ball/feast type thing in either nation to boost morale. How do Laurent and Damen interact differently with everyone now? With each other? Would be a great opportunity for clothing porn, dressing or undressing, dancing, sneaking off onto secluded balconies to catch a breath (or a kiss).
  • Prompt 2: Getting through an assassination attempt on either of them, either during or after canon. Hurt/comfort would fit really well here (injury, poison, aphrodisiac...). I'm particularly enamored with the idea of Laurent surviving an assassination attempt on his own, and only letting Damen know afterwards (maybe when Damen notices any injuries). But I'd be thrilled with however you want to take it :)
  • Prompt 3: I'd love to see them taking a break for like a weeklong honeymoon of nonstop sex and cuddling. Or maybe a briefer missing-scene break somewhere along the campaign? Maybe one of them is pushing themselves too hard in the aftermath and the other drags them off to their room to force them to take a break. (the break is sex.) Kinks I really like for them include A/B/O, dirty talk, courtship, praise kink, hand kink, and sharing body heat.

Request 2: Night Sun Tarot Deck

Page of Swords, Knight of Wands, Three of Pentacles

Brief intro to the canon: I very recently acquired the Night Sun Tarot, and I'm a bit obsessed with its dark and beautiful world. It's an intricate, intense deck. So many of the cards lend themselves to narratives, either on their own or in relation to other cards. There’s a lot of continuity; for example, the three figures in The Lovers are also The Empress, The Emperor, and The Hermit.

The reviews at The Invisible Muse and benebell wen highlight a lot of what drew me to the deck, and they have pictures of most of the cards! I’ve also linked to the images of my requested cards below, and typed up the “suggested meanings” for each from the Night Sun Tarot’s Little White Book (LWB). I’m sorry if the pictures aren’t very good, I wasn’t able to get my scanner to work /o\

The precise scope of canon is up to you. You can base fic solely on the images of my requested cards; you can use the imagery in the entire deck + the hierarchical structure of tarot for worldbuilding; you can use the traditional meanings of various cards to develop characterization.

Page of Swords [image]

I’m fascinated by this kid with a sword, and how he’s just staring out. He’s so still and focused. What’s he doing out there without shoes? Why is he covering his mouth? It almost looks like he’s been hit, or he’s trying to stay quiet. Also I really dig his cape.

LWB Notes: Intellectual centre. Air. Perseverance, observation, prudence, hesitation, unforeseen events. (Pages in general – uncertainty between actions and stagnation, a path towards maturity, gestation.)

Knight of Wands [image]

This is such an intense card. It’s simpler than many of the others, but so dramatic. (Depending on your screen, it might not show as well, but the colors are very vivid in person.) He's the only one in the entire Wands suit actively wielding a flaming wand. He's lighting up a dark space even as he himself appears almost formed from shadows.

LWB Notes: Creative/sexual centre. Fire. Adventurer, channeled instinct, departure, breaking, postponement. (Knights in general – new dimension, passage, fervor.)

Three of Pentacles [image]

I’m not quite sure what exactly the Three of Pentacles is doing here (purposeful gesture and intense expression leads to circles behind a cube inside a triangle inside three pentacle coins? Witchcraft!!) but I’d love to find out. But seriously, I'm intrigued by how strong the emotional/human element and the sacred geometry elements both are in this card.

LWB Notes: Material Centre. Earth. Expansion, success, perseverance, immaturity, incapacity. (Threes in general – action, creativity, first step without a precise direction, changeability.)

Ships: I’m most interested in any combination between my requested cards (including Knight of Wands/Page of Swords/Three of Pentacles OT3)
Note: You're welcome to use any two of the requested cards instead of all three.

  • Prompt 1: As an "observer," and with so much space around him, I see the Page of Swords as someone who stays on the edges of things. A witness. It could be interesting to push him into involvement instead of just observation. Maybe he's the last survivor of the group he was with, and has to find new allies (Knight of Wands and/or Three of Pentacles) to carry out his mission. Maybe they were thrown together on the quest in the first place. Maybe the page is carrying a message and something goes wrong -- he's taken captive by the Knight of Wands, or walks in on whatever geometric magic Three of Pentacles is concocting.
  • Prompt 2: The Knight of Wands is a natural adventurer -- I'm interested in situations where he might be constrained. Maybe he's part of a delegation to the Court of Swords or Pentacles and has to be on his best behavior during negotiations -- where he meets the Page of Swords and/or the Three of Pentacles. Or maybe in some sort of relationship, there's tension between his own passion and the other's less reckless/adventurous nature.
  • Prompt 3: The Three of Pentacles can represent teamwork and competence. I envision the Night Sun world with some conflict & tension between the four different suits -- I'd love to see the Three of Pentacles having to work together with the Page of Swords and/or the Knight of Wands even though they're from different factions. Enemies to lovers, enemies to friends, enemies to uneasy allies, it's all good.

Request 3: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

Rin, Shiki

This is a rough canon, and I’m definitely not anticipating fluff here. These are broken people in a broken world. All the characters in Togainu no Chi are driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways – Rin’s chase of Shiki is a clear mirror of Shiki’s chase of Nano.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead.

One note – Rin’s age is vague enough in the game that I don’t really want anything pornographic set pre-game, just because that might put him too young for my comfort levels.

Ships: Shiki/Rin

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Let’s suppose an alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 4: Vampire Chronicles - Anne Rice

Armand, Lestat de Lioncourt, Louis de Pointe du Lac

I love the sheer intensity of emotion each of these characters has. When they form connections they do so wholeheartedly. Armand is an eternal teenager – intelligent and refined by the centuries, but still impulsive and sometimes lost. Lestat never quite lost his aristocratic arrogance, and it can be difficult to get past his bold enthusiasm to see his struggles with morality. Well-meaning Louis is possibly best-known for his decades of introspection and brooding; he has a tendency to escape problems rather than solving them.

They’ve all been in and out of obsession with each other over the centuries, and they aren’t always kind to each other. Armand having Claudia executed comes to mind. As vampires they have a long (and long-suffering) view of morality, and I like seeing how they can mesh together despite or because of their complicated history.

I’m open to various degrees of “healthy” relationships in this fandom. Dubcon, manipulation, and mutual manipulation are all welcome. But I’m also very down for realizing how much they really mean to each other, comfort, and caretaking.

Ships: Armand/Lestat, Armand/Louis, Armand/Lestat/Louis
Note: I’ve only read through The Vampire Armand, and I’d prefer fic set before the modern-day plot events (mostly I’m just not as interested in the various human characters). Feel free to hand-wave vampire sex mechanics should they be relevant. Also feel free to include just Armand + Lestat or Armand + Louis.

  • Prompt 1: I'd love a fic placing the characters in any particularly decadent historical setting -- think Picture of Dorian Gray or The Great Gatsby. Historical clothing and costumes, wild parties, drugs, discreet or indiscreet liaisons...
  • Prompt 2: Canon divergence where Armand turns either Lestat or Louis. I'd be interested in Armand interacting with either of them as humans, or in the turning itself, Lestat or Louis adjusting to life as a vampire with a very different teacher... or perhaps this is all distant history, but it definitely casts a different light on any reunions through the years.
  • Prompt 3: Some sort of soul-bonding or biological-imperative type mating instinct! Maybe an AU where vampires have A/B/O dynamics. Maybe some sort of ritual temporarily binds two or three of them together -- and either they have to have sex or they just can't get more than a certain distance apart, which ends up driving them crazy. Maybe vampires can recognize their soul mate once they reach a certain age -- so Armand has known that Lestat, Louis, or both are his soul mate(s) for years but they don't know for the longest time.

Dear Creator,

First -- I'm so excited for this exchange. Last year's Trick or Treat was my first exchange ever, so I'm very much feeling the anniversary, come-full-circle celebration.

Second -- I can't wait to see what you come up with. As long as you use a Like or two and avoid my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my general preferences, or ignore the prompts and follow your own inspiration. If you see a Trick prompt you'd like to interpret as a Treat gift, or vice versa, that's welcome too!

General Preferences

I've requested both fic and art for all of my characters, and for both media I'm happy with any rating from General Audience to Explicit. I'm primarily a slash fan and I've listed a few preferred ships per character... but each of these characters is one of my faves in their own right, and I'd really love to get something fave-centric :D

For Fic:

I like all lengths, so go wherever the Halloween spirit takes you. Three connected drabbles? Awesome! Slowburn longfic? Totally rad! Past and present tense are both cool too.

I tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

If you want to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off –- all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (so, my requested characters for this exchange). My Smut Swap letter also gives a good overview of more specific kinks I'm into, and quite a few characters overlap with ships from that exchange.

For art:

I like all sorts of mediums. I tend to be interested in very purposeful color schemes, which could be vibrant or restrained or even stark black and white -- something that fits your vision for the request. I like dynamic pieces, but also captured moments of stillness. I like emotion, tension, connection, hurt, and tenderness. I prefer identifiable figures instead of abstract pieces.

I think a lot of the elements on my "Yes, Please!" list translate very well to visual tropes (corsets, bondage, bruises, etc). As a general art prompt: I've recently fallen head-first into studying tarot, and I would love to see any of my characters reimagined as a tarot card (...except maybe my Night Sun requests? haha). Either representing a specific existing card, or just in a symbolic card-like design.

Note -- I don't usually request art, so please feel welcome to contact me through the mod if you need me to give more or different information :) I think most of my prompts lend themselves well to visual interpretations of specific scenes or situations; for those that might not, I've tried to include separate visual notes.

Request 1: Captive Prince

Laurent

Laurent's combination of strength and desperation are so narratively appealing to me. He's not a nice person, but he can be good. I like fic that plays with that distinction. I like fic and art that show him at his icy, on-top-of-it best... and I like fic and art where he drops the mask to just be happy. (Or to cry. Crying works too.)

I'm ridiculously in love with Damen/Laurent, and also really interested by the question of how Laurent will start to put his life together again after the events of Kings Rising, and his relationship with Damen, though crucial, is just part of that.

Ship: Damen/Laurent

Note: For canon-era or post-canon fic, I prefer Damen and Laurent to be exclusive and together, even if you opt for Laurent-centric rather than something focused on their relationship. No marrying other people, no having babies with other people. Just ignore the whole heir thing altogether, please!

  • Trick Prompt: Getting through an assassination attempt, either before, during, or after canon -- and either on his own or with Damen's help. For something shorter, the moment directly after, when action's stopped and the adrenaline dies down and there's finally time for shock. Hurt/comfort would fit really well here (injury, poison, aphrodisiac...). Visually, Laurent with a weapon, optionally bruised and bloodied but alive -- or getting bandaged after -- would thrill me.
  • Treat Prompt: Some sort of post-Kings Rising celebration! Could be a quiet, intimate get-together with close friends, or a grand masquerade/ball/feast type thing in either nation to boost morale. How does Laurent interact differently with everyone now? Is he nervous at all, even if he'd never show it? What's it like being openly together with Damen? Would be a great opportunity for clothing porn, dressing or undressing, dancing, moonlight or torchlight, sneaking off onto secluded balconies to catch a breath (or a kiss).

Request 2: Corruption of Champions

Male Champion

I'd prefer if the Champion is still mostly human, and with default male anatomy. Bonus points for cat ears and tail, though! And increased baseline libido. And if he's shrunk a bit over his travels, to emphasize the size difference between him and those he encounters... that's cool too ;) I'm down for any level of corruption (and any level of consent/willingness).

Anyway. I will admit I'm hoping for something smutty or sensual in this canon. (Is it weird if I plug my Smut Swap letter again??) But if you want to do a gen character study about the harsh realities and unexpected bright spots of life in such a fucked-up world, and struggling how to preserve his sense of self in the face of so much temptation and degradation... that could be ridiculously amazing.

Art-wise, you could draw a sex scene, or a portrait of the champion with his cat ears, weapon, and strange or sexy outfit. Wandering through any of the environments, living through your favorite scenes... etc. There's a lot to work from here :D

Ships: Tossing him to any of the male or indeterminate monsters would be fantastic. Vines, tentacles, hellhounds, imps, minotaurs, satyrs, Akbal... pick your favorite :) I also really like the possessiveness of a relationship with male dragon or dragon-morph Ember!

  • Trick Prompt: Noncon! Could be a scene from one of the first battles he loses, maybe a minotaur or hellhound out on the mountain. Could be a vine monster in the swamp. Maybe tied up in the pit in Owca. Whatever and wherever, Our Hero is terrified and not enjoying this, even if it physically feels more amazing that it should. (some body horror cum inflation or oviposition would not go amiss here.)
  • Treat Prompt:Something a bit more enjoyable for Our Hero than the above ;) Maybe he's corrupt enough that he's really into a drunken night with the satyr, or it's a soothingly pleasant sex pollen vine monster, or he's masturbating in a corner of camp.

Request 3: Death Note

L

I love L's intensity and the contrast between his dazzling intellect and his slovenly appearance. He’s an incredibly skilled investigator, yet sits curled up like a child and is probably extremely malnourished from the candy diet. I like seeing him get tangled up in his cases and racing to keep ahead in the manipulation game -- particularly moments where he’s not quite sure he’s really ahead.

For fic with him, I'd love a canon divergent AU where he doesn't die :)

Ships: L/Mello, Light/L, Light/L/Mello

  • Trick Prompt: L was captured by *insert bad guys here* and held hostage. He’s been beaten, interrogated, half-starved, possibly molested for weeks before he’s finally rescued or escapes. Light or Mello takes charge of nursing him back to health -- but L's not sure whether he's really any safer in their care. (Visually, I am very into bondage and chains.)
  • Treat Prompt: I'd love fic or art that incorporates his sweet tooth without getting too cracky. Maybe some introspective licking of chocolate syrup from Light or Mello's belly; maybe working out his frenetic daily schedule so he has time to hit the convenience store for lollipops between meetings; maybe he ran out of candy and is starting to crash hard when Light or Mello saves the day. Fic or art with Light or Mello feeding him cake would be fantastic.

Mello

Mello’s got a large, intense personality, but there’s still a lot of room for character exploration between the surface notes. He plays the same game as L, but he’s not quite as adept and he hides insecurity behind anger or indifference. I’m interested in his interactions with other characters during the narrative present rather than his school days.

For fic with him, I'd love a canon divergent AU where he doesn't die :)

Ships: L/Mello, Light/Mello, Mello/Near, Light/L/Mello

  • Trick Prompt:After L dies, Mello starts unconsciously using Light or Near as a substitute for him. An ally, a rival, an obsession. Light or Near, of course, is using Mello for the same reasons. Romantic, sexual, purely professional, or a little of everything. Possible visuals: moonlit encounter on the fire escape, holding someone up against a wall, working late at night with chocolate wrappers and coffee cups strewn all over, a gun close at hand.
  • Treat Prompt:Let’s play dress-up with Mello? :D? Maybe Mello has to dress as a girl for *hand wave* infiltration reasons, maybe his partner (boyfriend, or just partner for the night) just really wants him trussed up in a corset and stockings.

Request 4: Dragon Age

Fenris

So, Fenris is pretty much my DA fandom bicycle. His unique brand of humor, anger, severity, and vulnerability make for a very interesting dynamic with a wide range of other characters -- both as companions and lovers, depending on how you want to go. I do really like enemies-to-lovers tropes for him, which could involve frustration, secret pining, hate sex, good things like that. Distrust turning to respect turning to affection.

He's also grown a lot over the ten years of DAII, so I'd expect him to behave differently and relate to people differently depending on when fic is set.

I'm also aesthetically in love with his character design. There's so much to play with -- the harsh exterior of his armor, vulnerability without it, the contrast between his skin and hair and tattoos. Having his tattoos light up, or only part of them lighting up.

Note: I do not want any AUs where another character in a ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.

Ships: Anders/Fenris, Cullen/Fenris, Dorian/Fenris, Male Hawke/Fenris, Sebastian/Fenris, Zevran/Fenris, M!Hawke/Anders/Fenris

  • Trick Prompt: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Treat Prompt: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!

Male Tabris

I prefer Tabris on the diplomatic-to-snarky spectrum rather than straight-up aggressive. I also have a slight preference for him as a rogue. Just calling him Tabris works best for me. I also don't want him (or a Warden love interest) to make the ultimate sacrifice. Everything else -- appearance, preferred weapons, specializations -- is up to you! :D

I like the fish-out-of-water trope with him, and playing with his power and status as a Warden vs. his youth confined in the Alienage, plus the discrimination he continues to face through the game. Learning how to relate to his companions can be interesting development.

Ships: Alistair/Tabris, Male Cousland/Male Tabris, Zevran/Tabris, Alistair/M!Cousland/Tabris, Zevran/M!Cousland/Tabris

  • Trick Prompt: Monsters! Which could lead to monster sex. (Rutting werewolf, tentacle monster, unnaturally animated vines, even a genlock, hurlock, shriek, or ogre -- feel free to handwave anatomy for size kink purposes.) Noncon is welcome, particularly of the "I hate this but it feels good" variety, as are sex pollen, cum inflation, and knotting. Smut isn't required, though! This could also go in a hurt/comfort direction after a fight, with either Tabris or possibly a LI getting hurt.
  • Treat Prompt:Tabris has lived all his life in one corner of Denerim, and then he has a chance to travel all over Ferelden. I'd love a snapshot or exploration of what that's like -- what's it like for him to arrive at the Frostback Mountains? Orzammar? The Brecilian Forest? Art could be him bundled up for the cold in Haven, or trying on Dalish armor. This could definitely get shippy too, if you're down.

Male Lavellan

Male Lavellan is my fave Inquisitor for shameless elf-fancying reasons. I’m totally down for any Inquisitor personality. I have a slight preference for rogues or warriors over mage Inquisitors. Name-wise, just call him Lavellan. If you feel like it, you could use my dagger-wielding rogue, Corin Lavellan, as a template -- otherwise, I'm happy to see the Lavellan you want to write or draw :)

Like the Warden, the Inquisitor is very suddenly thrust into a new situation. In a very short period of time, he goes from a total unknown to the internationally famous leader of an armed religious movement. That's pretty intense.

Ships: Blackwall/Lavellan, Cullen/Lavellan, Dorian/Lavellan, Iron Bull/Lavellan, Solas/Lavellan, Male Hawke/Male Lavellan, Male Trevelyan/Male Lavellan

  • Trick Prompt: Spooky Fade shit. Either branching off from one of the canon Fade trips, or a new encounter. Demons fucking with him (optionally: fucking him). Not sure if he's dreaming. Maybe he gets lost. Maybe Solas is helping or hindering. Maybe another LI is in there, but he's not sure if it's really them at first. Visually: Lavellan, alone or not alone, in said ~spooky Fade environment.
  • Treat Prompt: I think Lavellan could really do with a quiet moment of relief/triumph/comfort. Maybe set after the main game, or after any big events in-game, or someone just pulls him away at any point to take his mind off things with a game of cards or a drink or sex or something. If this got matched up with hurt/comfort (either physical or emotional!) I would be very happy :)

Request 5: DRAMAtical Murder

Noiz

I'm down for a variety of plot choices here -- maybe he got successfully Scrapped, or maybe he still can't feel anything. I do think there's a lot of interesting territory to explore post-Scrapping, since there's such an adjustment period there, but it's also interesting to see how Noiz navigates the world with such limited sensation, either during canon or in a post-game world where he didn't get Scrapped.

In terms of personality and character dynamics, I like how he tries to be cool, but he's a 19-year-old kid who dresses like that. It's kind of hilarious, kind of endearing. He's not good with people or like, basic nutrition, but he is good at Rhyme and tech. Also... he can be a bit of a brat, and I'm into daddy kink dynamics for him if a ship works for it. I'm not into the actual word "daddy" as much, but that sort of age kink, praise kink, dom/sub thing -- yes.

And in general, for visual novels I like the idea of putting a NPC in the PC's role for certain situations -- like, if Noiz ended up in the Virus/Trip bad end instead of Aoba, or if Noiz ended up kidnapped and brought to Mink's lair.

Ships: Aoba/Noiz, Koujaku/Noiz, Mink/Noiz, Virus/Trip/Noiz, Koujaku/Aoba/Noiz, Mink/Koujaku/Noiz

  • Trick Prompt: I think Rhyme can get intensely psychological and strange. Crossing back and forth between the game world and the real world -- are there physical side effects? Does he form relationships in-game that he doesn't know how to handle in real life? Does he have relationships in real life that he loses track of while spending so much time playing?
  • Treat Prompt: Could be fun to toss him into the crazy, decadent world of Platinum Jail, either pre- or during canon! And either just him hitting the town or a potential lover would be fantastic. What does he get up to in the wild, drug-filled clubs and crowded streets?

Request 6: Loveless

Aoyagi Ritsuka

So, I really like the cat ears, but am also totally down for later fic or art where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on screen. I know the ages are inconvenient here, and I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out.

My favorite part about Ritsuka is probably his fierceness and his determination, even when he's lost and scared. He's been through a lot, and there's never an easy path forward -- but even though it's not easy, he can find a path.

Art-wise, there's a lot of room for great imagery in the battle system! With all the magic & bondage going around.

Ships: Soubi/Ritsuka, Seimei/Ritsuka, Seimei/Ritsuka/Soubi

  • Trick Prompt: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? If Seimei comes back for Ritsuka years later, what is their reunion like?
  • Treat Prompt: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!). Whether shippy or not, I can see his relationship with Soubi as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination. I'm on board for all of that. Visually, bandages and cups of tea might be nice :)

Request 7: Night Sun Tarot Deck

Brief intro to the canon before I get into character specifics: I very recently acquired the Night Sun Tarot, and I'm a bit obsessed with its dark and beautiful world. It's an intricate, intense deck. So many of the cards lend themselves to narratives, either on their own or in relation to other cards. There’s a lot of continuity; for example, the three figures in The Lovers are also The Empress, The Emperor, and The Hermit.

The reviews at The Invisible Muse and benebell wen highlight a lot of what drew me to the deck, and they have pictures of most of the cards! I’ve also linked to the images of my requested cards below, and typed up the “suggested meanings” for each from the Night Sun Tarot’s Little White Book (LWB). I’m sorry if the pictures aren’t very good, I wasn’t able to get my scanner to work /o\

The precise scope of canon is up to you. You can base fic or art solely off the image of one of the cards; you can use the imagery in the entire deck + the hierarchical structure of tarot for worldbuilding; you can use the traditional meanings of various cards to develop characterization.

Ships: I’m most interested in any combination between my requested cards (including Knight of Wands/Page of Swords/Three of Pentacles OT3) ;D

Page of Swords [image]

I’m fascinated by this kid with a sword, and how he’s just staring out. He’s so still and focused. What’s he doing out there without shoes? Why is he covering his mouth? It almost looks like he’s been hit, or he’s trying to stay quiet. He’s holding onto a tall plant, and he has an egg at his feet. (the same egg shows up in a lot of the cards.) Also I really dig his birdwing cape.

  • LWB Notes: Intellectual centre. Air. Perseverance, observation, prudence, hesitation, unforeseen events. (Pages in general – uncertainty between actions and stagnation, a path towards maturity, gestation.)
  • Prompt: As an "observer," and with so much space around him, I see the Page of Swords as someone who stays on the edges of things. A witness. It could be interesting to push him outside his comfort zone -- somehow he ends up in the limelight. Maybe he's the last survivor of the group he was with, and has to carry on the mission alone or find new allies. (woobie page of swords staggering across dangerous landscape would be A+)

Knight of Wands [image]

This is such an intense card. It’s simpler than many of the others, but so dramatic. (Depending on your screen, it might not show as well, but the colors are very vivid in person.) He's the only one in the entire Wands suit actively wielding a flaming wand. He's lighting up a dark space even as he himself appears almost formed from shadows. I think he'd be terrifying to encounter in battle.

  • LWB Notes: Creative/sexual centre. Fire. Adventurer, channeled instinct, departure, breaking, postponement. (Knights in general – new dimension, passage, fervor.)
  • Prompt: He's a natural adventurer -- I'm interested in situations where he might be constrained. Maybe he's part of a delegation to another Court and has to be on his best behavior during negotiations. Or maybe in some sort of relationship, there's tension between his own passion and the other's less reckless/adventurous nature.

Three of Pentacles [image]

I’m not quite sure what exactly the Three of Pentacles is doing here (purposeful hand gesture and intense facial expression leads to circles behind a cube inside a triangle inside three pentacle coins? Witchcraft!!) but I’d love to find out. But seriously, I'm intrigued by how strong the emotional/human element and the sacred geometry elements both are in this card. He's not as high-ranked as the Page or the Knight, but that won't stop him from getting the job done.

  • LWB Notes: Material Centre. Earth. Expansion, success, perseverance, immaturity, incapacity. (Threes in general – action, creativity, first step without a precise direction, changeability.)
  • Prompt: The Three of Pentacles can represent teamwork and competence. I envision the Night Sun world with some conflict & tension between the four different suits -- I'd love to see the Three of Pentacles having to work together with one or more people from opposing groups. Enemies to lovers, enemies to friends, enemies to uneasy allies, it's all good.

Dear Writer,

I'm so excited for this exchange! Thank you so much for offering one or more of my tags, and I can't wait to see where inspiration leads you.

As long as you use a Like or two and stay away from my DNWs, I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, work off any of my general preferences, or just follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod!

Cheers,

General Preferences

I like fic of all lengths, so go where the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I tend to prefer emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

I’m happy with any rating from General Audiences to Explicit. Plot is awesome, plot with porn is awesome, porn without plot is awesome. If you do feel inclined to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off – all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book.

Yes, Please!

Do Not Want

  • Certain A/B/O tropes: mpreg, slick
  • Crossovers/fusions
  • Extreme underage (14+ is fine)
  • First or second person POV
  • Infidelity*
  • Main character death, gore, permanent maiming/incapacitation
  • Main ships with OCs (side character OCs are fine!)
  • Pregnancy, children
  • Scat, watersports, emetophilia
  • Setting-change AUs, role-reversal AUs, gender identity AUs
*Exception: Everyone can still be hypothetically engaged or married to their canon fiances or spouses, but I'd prefer those relationships not be focal points. For example -- Varenechibel dismissing a messenger from Csoru as Maia walks into the room -- totally fine. Varenechibel talking about how Maia compares to Csoru, or how she mustn't know what they're doing -- not fine.

Relationship:
Csevet Aisava/Maia Drazhar

I love the negotiation of private and public in this life, the constraints of power, and how that affects Maia's relationships. And I love Csevet both in his supportive loyalty!kink role and in his own right. While at the beginning of the book Maia sees him as the perfect, proper elven courier, by mid-book he's stammering about having privacy for his needs, blushing every other chapter, and I swear he was about to cry after Maia was kidnapped.

I see a real kindness and sweetness underlying their relationship. Tenderness. Slow, hesitant, wondering touches. Grand or tiny gestures that mean the world. Building confidence.

  • Prompt 1: AU where everything's the same except goblins go into heat starting in their mid-teens. Since Maia doesn't have one then, he assumes it's not something he has to worry about-- until he very unexpectedly goes into heat, and Csevet needs to take care of him :D
  • Prompt 2: A festival or masquerade story could be very fun to explore. Perhaps nobody else recognizes them (Maia isn't wearing white, etc), maybe they don't even recognize each other at first. Lots of hiding away around balcony corners to make out where nobody can see. And dancing together. (Csevet teaching Maia to dance would be absolutely splendid.)

Relationship: Setheris Nelar/Maia Drazhar

Annnnd okay, now we're done with the nice, sweet portion of my letter >:D

These two get super twisted. It's almost gothic, really -- both exiled away from court to the lonely marsh-side Edonomee, with few associates beyond the servants. There's a strong level of kinship there, with both the fact that they're literally blood relations and the fact that they've been condemned to the same fate.

And then, of course, Setheris is an alcoholic child abuser. I think it's very easy to push the canon abuse into sexual abuse as well, whether you want to go straight-up noncon or push it more into dubcon, where Maia would rather go along with this if it means Setheris might be happier with him, or he thinks this isn't that bad because he doesn't have much experience with healthy relationships to work off of.

  • Prompt 1: Corporal punishment. That's it, that's the prompt. No, I lied, I'm totally going to elaborate. There are so many ways you can take this. Maia breaks something or does something else that pisses Setheris off, and his rage takes a different turn than usual. Or Setheris isn't actually mad, he's just looking for an excuse. Bare-handed spanking or paddling are both great. Over the knee, bent over a table, up against the wall with Setheris leaning over him and murmuring in his ear. Hair-pulling could be fantastic. Maybe they've already fucked before, or maybe this is the first time the punishment crosses the line into sex.
  • Prompt 2: A "fuck or die" or "forced to fuck for Reasons" scenario could be really interesting to play with here. Magic spell, ritual requirements, biological imperative, political obligation, for whatever reason either Maia has to get fucked and Setheris is the only one around, or Setheris and Maia specifically have to fuck. Could be especially interesting if in this fic, Setheris isn't a sexual abuser, so he's trying (not very well) to make this suck less for Maia, even as they both want it not to be happening.
Relationship: Varenechibel IV/Maia Drazhar

Varenechibel/Maia hits my very specific father/son kink -- super, cruel, all-powerful father, and a neglected son pining for the slightest hint of acknowledgement.

It would be interesting to see how comfortable Varenechibel is with all the power he has and the customs surrounding him. He's used to being waited on hand and foot, and having people obey him without question. Entirely different from Maia's discomfort with his sudden change in position.

I'm down for every shade of dubcon, noncon, clothing and jewelry kink, impassive inspections, omegaverse. As I'm sure Varenechibel's nohecharei would have to know about this, there are lots of ways to take that. Varenechibel doesn't give a fuck if they see, but the nohecharei could feel very sorry for Maia and try to help him when possible, or they could not care, or instead of just watching they could join in. At Varenechibel's invitation/command, of course. Or some combination of individual responses.

  • Prompt 1: Instead of being relegated after his mother's death -- or having been brought back after five or six years -- Maia is alternately neglected and sexually abused by Varenechibel IV. Maia always wanted his father's attention, and he'll just have to take it in whatever form it's given.
  • Prompt 2: Every once in a while, Varenechibel visits Edonomee.

Relationship: Eshevis Tethimar/Idra Drazhar

I'm open to so many ideas with this. We don't know all that much about Idra -- he's seems like a pretty decent, duty-conscious kid -- and there's a lot of room to develop his character in fic. And Tethimar's basically a thin veneer of civility disguising the monster within.

In most situations, I don't believe Tethimar would rough Idra up as much as he was going to hurt Csevet in canon. Idra's better protected by his position and visibility. I'm very much feeling things like slow and insidious seductions, a drunken night that goes too far, rough play that gets rougher until Idra's not entirely sure whether he likes it, and even though Tethimar says they can stop at any time, something about the look in his eyes makes Idra unsure if that's true.

This ship gets a few extra prompts just because I only thought about it during nominations, so I'm getting out all my initial thoughts here :)
  • Prompt 1: It's traditional to send imperial sons to be fostered in different parts of the empire to broaden their perspectives. Varenechibel sends Idra to Eshoravee, where his perspective certainly gets broadened.
  • Prompt 2: One of my fave tropes for this fandom, but I bet an arranged marriage fic could work very well for this ship. Get into the political motivations to get Idra taken care of after Maia takes power, or handwave that and just get into the clothing porn, rituals, and obligatory consummation :)
  • Prompt 3: Either pre-canon, during canon, or a few years later in an AU where the airship doesn't crash, Tethimar decides to get close to Idra in order to have more political clout and influence when/if Idra eventually gains power -- and to have some fun along the way. Perhaps Idra's newly an adult and eager to prove how mature he is, not realizing how far in over his head he is. Late night parties, dark corners, etc.
  • Prompt 4: Or perhaps Idra suspects Tethimar is plotting something, and he decides to seduce Tethimar to gain information.
  • Prompt 5: ...and feel free to go shamelessly omegaverse here too :D :D

Worldbuilding: Tentacle Monsters

What I want for this, more than anything, is to read the tentacle monster worldbuilding fic of your dreams. Smutty, creepy, funny, nerdy, I'm totally down.

You are more than welcome to go to a tentacle porn place, of course. I'm very into forced orgasms, overstimulation, sex pollen, cum inflation, oviposition, and crying. I'm most interested in seeing this with Maia, Csevet, Idra, or an OC of any background.

Or, if that is not your thing, I would of course be thrilled for any rating of fic exploring how tentacle monsters might fit into the fauna and flora of the Elflands-- or beyond.
  • Prompt 1: It's a classic for a reason. A character is out exploring and runs into a grabby, wiggly surprise. Maia gets lost in the Edonara! During Csevet's courier days, an assignment takes him on an unexpected detour! Idra goes traveling to far off places, gets touched by tentacles in all the wrong places! An enterprising young scientist OC seeks to catalogue obscure wildlife, and makes a very intimate discovery!
  • Prompt 2: Perhaps something lurks in dark caverns and tunnels beneath the palace or the city. Are there any legends, superstitions, or rituals concerning this creature? Tales told to frighten children-- tales that turn out, unexpectedly, to be true?

Dear Writer,

Thank you so much for offering one or more of my ships! I’m very excited to see what you come up with.

Rest assured that as long as you use a few of my Likes and stay away from my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my general preferences, or just follow your own inspiration.

And, a general prompt: I adore all the little side-quests. It could be super interesting to take one -- like a Chantry board assignment from Origins, or finding an Astrarium cave in Inquisition, or any of that sort of thing-- and build a fic out of that for any of the requested pairings.

1. Origins Ships


I prefer Wardens on the diplomatic-to-snarky spectrum rather than straight-up aggressive, and I prefer them just going by their surnames. I'm like how the different origins affect how they interact with the world and their companions -- the transition from Circle or Alienage to "the wide-open road" has to be fraught. As is the transition from being the Teyrn of Highever's son to a wanted fugitive!

Cullen/Male Surana
: I'm a sucker for the 'forbidden romance' and 'enemies to friends to lovers' tropes here. Feel free to play with the power dynamics, though I don't see Cullen as evil or someone who would take advantage of Surana. I'm totally down for something during the time they're in the Circle together, or something where they meet up afterwards. Could be fun to toss them both into danger together, (maybe into the Fade?) and they're forced to work together to fight their way out. 

Zevran/Male Surana & Zevran/Male Tabris: Zevran's romance is one of my absolute favorites. I love how he finds himself capable of emotions he never imagined wanting, much less having, and I love his shamelessness in expressing his desires. I'd love to see him dragging Surana or Tabris along on a high-stakes undercover escapade. If someone gets hurt and has to get kissed better, that's A+ in my book. Or they can take a break from the plot and Zevran can just help the Warden relax for a night ;) I really like contrasts with Zevran and less experienced Wardens.

Male Cousland/Male Surana & Male Cousland/Male Tabris: So! Multiple-Warden AUs are always interesting to me. Especially when they're hooking up, lol. There are so many different ways you can take these pairings that would all be fascinating -- since they're basically OC/OC ships. I'm rather enamored of the idea that they don't get along at first -- different worldviews and backgrounds, not trusting each other, brought together under very stressful circumstances. Having to work together to defeat the Blight despite their differences. Could be fun to play with some tropes here -- secret mutual pining, drunk hookup that turns into something more, sex pollen, hurt/comfort. Cousland comforting Surana or Tabris after the quests in the Circle or Alienage would be fantastic.... and smut works too, as always :)

2. DA2 Ships
 
Note – I do not want any AUs where the other character in the ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.

Fenris/Cullen Rutherford:
I’m a fan of Fenris/Cullen either during DA2 or with Fenris somehow meeting up with the Inquisition. They’re both very principled characters, and I can see them really connecting as they try to do the right thing. Cullen’s more of a strategist/leader while Fenris just charges in, so that’s an interesting dynamic to play with too. Also interested to see if Fenris’s tattoos have any interaction with Cullen’s addiction.

Fenris/Dorian Pavus: I’m into enemies-to-lovers, but here I see the enmity likely to be one-sided. Fenris has no reason to like or trust Dorian; Dorian has no reason to dislike Fenris. Dorian’s very driven to improve his homeland and remedy its wrongs, and I think he could see helping Fenris somehow as a symbolic opportunity. Fenris is also more secure in his freedom by the end of DA2 than ten years previously; how does that affect his interactions with the magister?

     
  • Prompt 1: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Prompt 2: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!
 3. Inquisition Ships

I’m totally down for any Inquisitor personality. I have a slight preference for rogues or warriors over mage Inquisitors. Name-wise, just call them Lavellan and Trevelyan. If you feel like it, you can use my dagger-wielding rogue, Corin Lavellan -- otherwise, I'm happy to see the Lavellan you want to write :)

Blackwall/Male Lavellan: This is like, the iddiest thing ever to me. Gruff, bearded human with slender, pretty elf -– sign me up! I’m really interested in his arc, too, and I’d be happy with fic set during the game or post-game. And, um, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in that Gray Warden stamina if he ends up joining the Wardens ;) I also like the idea of Lavellan hanging out with Blackwall (all the way out in the stables) as an escape from the crazy intrigues and machinations of the nobility.

Cullen/Male Lavellan: I see a romance with Cullen going much the same way as the canon romance with Cullen; I love, love, love the loyalty!kink and protective aspects of his personality. He's so relieved every time the Inquisitor comes back home safely! *hearteyes* I’m also very interested in his struggle with addiction, and his striving to become a better person. Hurt/comfort and caretaking -- in either or both directions -- would be fantastic here, as would dress-up and flirting at a party followed by fucking over the commander's desk :D

Solas/Male Lavellan: Any relationship with Solas has to have some weird power dynamics – which I’m 100% in favor of. He’s hiding the fact that he’s literally a god and wants to destroy the world! Not the foundation of a healthy relationship. You’re welcome to either revel in the fucked-upness, or explore the moments where they do connect on a more equal level -– I’m on board for all of that. Exploring dreams/the Fade with Solas could get interesting too, with or without kinky dream sex :)

Male Lavellan/Male Trevelyan: I'm down for however you want to work both of them into a single narrative. Either one could be the official Inquisitor, with the other acting as a companion. Like with the Warden/Warden ship above, I'm interested in how their different backgrounds might lead to friction, and seeing them work together towards a common purpose. Some particular moments it could be fun to explore: stopping to huddle for warmth as they both make the long walk through the snow after Corypheus destroys Haven; long flirtation culminates in dancing and makeouts at the Winter Palace; one of them gets hurt protecting the other during battle.


4. Xeno Ships


Male Mahariel/Tentacle Monster
Male Surana/Tentacle Monster
Male Tabris/Tentacle Monster
Male Lavellan/Tentacle Monster

Male Darkspawn/Male Lavellan
Male Demon/Male Lavellan

Same Warden and Inquisitor preferences apply as in the previous requests!
 
...and I'm hoping that if you offered any of these, you aren't looking to write fluffy curtainfic, haha. I'm on board for a pretty wide range of scenarios and willingness/enjoyment levels, though I'd have trouble buying into "informed, enthusiastic consent" here.

I'm also on board for a wide range of monsters. Tentacle Monster could be sentient swamp monster, and could also mean magic vine plant. Darkspawn are, well, grossly self-explanatory, and I'm down for anything from a horde of genlocks to a hurlock alpha to even an ogre if you want to handwave anatomy. Demons -- subtle, creepy seduction by a Desire Demon works very well for me. Extremely less-subtle encounter with a Pride Demon or wraiths or whatever also work well :D

I will confess to not being very excited about any demons that look like spiders.

Anyway. Topic sentence: just fuck the PC up. Feel free to take some extreme liberties with anatomical mechanics, just make sure Lavellan or the Warden is alive and not too damaged at the end of it. Some prompt ideas:

  • Lavellan or Warden is fighting the monster when they both stumble into some sort of sex pollen -- or the monster is the one intentionally sex pollening.
  • Lavellan or Warden is captured by baddies (Red Templars, evil mages, etc) and they set a monster on him for kicks.
  • Lavellan or Warden gets separated from his companions while (physically or dreaming) in the Fade, runs into unexpected complications.
  • Lavellan or Warden and companions are trapped in a dungeon and need to perform a ritual to escape -- the PC volunteers, but nobody anticipated exactly what the ritual entailed...
Note: I have a very specific humiliation squick, and I don't want all of Thedas knowing about the PC's encounter with the monster. So either nobody knows, or just some of his companions, or just his love interest -- a small group. Feel free to include any of the pairings from other requests as part of this one. (or not. Up to you!)

shadow_lover: (promise)

Dear Rare Pair Creator,

Thank you so much for offering one or more of my ships! I love all of these ships very dearly, and I’m very excited to see what you come up with.

Rest assured that as long as you use a few of my Likes and stay away from my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my general preferences, or just follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod!

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I like fic of all lengths, so go where the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

I’m happy with any rating from General Audiences to Explicit. Plot is awesome, plot with porn is awesome, porn without plot is awesome. If you do feel inclined to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off – all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (Mello, Fenris, Noiz, Draco, Ritsuka, Rin). My Smut Swap letter also gives a pretty good overview of more specific kinks I'm into, and quite a few of the ships overlap with this exchange :)

Request 1: Death Note

L/Mello
Light/Mello

I love L's intensity and the contrast between his dazzling intellect and his slovenly appearance. He’s an incredibly skilled investigator, yet sits curled up like a child and is probably extremely malnourished from the candy diet. I like seeing him get tangled up in his cases and racing to keep ahead in the manipulation game – particularly moments where he’s not quite sure he’s really ahead.

Mello’s got a large, intense personality, but there’s still a lot of room for character exploration between the surface notes. He plays the same game as L, but he’s not quite as adept and he hides insecurity behind anger or indifference. I’m interested in his interactions with other characters during the narrative present rather than his school days. 

And Light -- possibly my favorite part about him is that he thinks he's doing the right thing. I'd love to see that explored, even as he continues the whole evil god complex thing.

For L/Mello, I'd like a canon divergent AU where neither die; for Light/Mello, I’d like an AU where Mello doesn’t die :)

  • Prompt 1: Mello or L gets captured by *insert bad guys here* and held hostage. He’s been beaten, interrogated, half-starved, possibly molested for weeks before he’s finally rescued or escapes. The other half of the ship takes charge of nursing him back to health, with varying levels of altruism in their intentions…
  • Prompt 2: Let’s play dress-up with Mello! Maybe Mello has to dress as a girl for *hand wave* infiltration reasons, maybe his partner (boyfriend, or just partner for the night) just really wants him trussed up in a corset and stockings.
  • Prompt 3: Mello survives, but Light still wins. He holds Mello captive, to use as he pleases. He might even think this is love. 
  • Prompt 4: Mello and L survive, but Light still wins. Now Mello and L are in hiding together, trying to fight back or just stay alive.


Requests 2: 
Dragon Age

Fenris Ships:
Fenris/Dorian Pavus
Fenris/Cullen Rutherford

So, Fenris is pretty much my DA fandom bicycle. His unique brand of humor, anger, severity, and vulnerability make for a very interesting dynamic with a wide range of other characters.

I’m a fan of Fenris/Cullen either during DA2 or with Fenris somehow meeting up with the Inquisition. They’re both very principled characters, and I can see them really connecting as they try to do the right thing. Cullen’s more of a strategist/leader while Fenris just charges in, so that’s an interesting dynamic to play with too. Also interested to see if Fenris’s tattoos have any interaction with Cullen’s addiction.

Fenris/Dorian – I’m into enemies-to-lovers, but here I see the enmity likely to be one-sided. Fenris has no reason to like or trust Dorian; Dorian has no reason to dislike Fenris. Dorian’s very driven to improve his homeland and remedy its wrongs, and I think he could see helping Fenris somehow as a symbolic opportunity. Fenris is also more secure in his freedom by the end of DA2 than ten years previously; how does that affect his interactions with the magister?

Note – I do not want any AUs where the other character in the ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.

  • Prompt 1: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Prompt 2: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!
  • Prompt 3: Double-dubcon Fade shenanigans! Two characters end up stuck in the same little bubble of the Fade. They both think they’re dreaming, Desire Demon does its subtle sex pollen thing, and they have sex – then they realize it really was the other person.

Lavellan Ships:
Blackwall/Male Lavellan
Male Lavellan/Cullen Rutherford
Male Lavellan/Solas

Male Lavellan is my fave Inquisitor for, uh, reasons. I’m totally down for any Inquisitor personality. I have a slight preference for rogues or warriors over mage Inquisitors. Name-wise, just call him Lavellan. If you feel like it, I'd be totally on board for using my dagger-wielding rogue, Corin Lavellan -- otherwise, I'm happy to see the Lavellan you want to write :)

Blackwall/Lavellan is like, the iddiest thing ever to me. Gruff bearded human with slender, pretty elf – sign me up! I’m really interested in his arc, too, and I’d be happy with fic set during the game or post-game. And, um, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in that Gray Warden stamina.

I see a romance with Cullen going much the same way as the canon romance with Cullen; I love, love, love the loyalty!kink and protective aspects of his personality. I’m also very interested in his struggle with control over his addiction.

Any relationship with Solas has to have some weird power dynamics – which I’m 100% in favor of. He’s hiding the fact that he’s literally a god and wants to destroy the world! Not the foundation of a healthy relationship. You’re welcome to either revel in the fucked-upness, or explore the moments where they do connect on a more equal level – I’m on board for all of that.

  • Prompt 1: I’d love some classic, exhausted hurt/comfort. Lavellan has an absolutely shitty day out in the field, comes back to Skyhold and has to keep it together by the skin of his teeth through war table meetings and talks with advisors and companions, having to hide just how messed up he is all day long – and then finally getting to let go with his love interest.
  • Prompt 2: If you want to get smutty, how about sex in a location very specific to the love interest? I’m sure Cullen and Lavellan could make excellent use of the Commander’s desk. Blackwall and Lavellan could go for a rumble in the hay. And maybe dream!sex with Solas?

Request 3: Harry Potter

Sirius Black/Draco Malfoy
Remus Lupin/Draco Malfoy

Hello, you have reached the "tormented older men/Draco Malfoy" section of my letter! Let's get a canon divergence AU where Sirius and/or Remus lives, yeah? :D I also prefer an "Epilogue, What Epilogue" approach to shipfic here, so I'd prefer nothing canon-compliant with Draco's marriage (or, for Remus/Draco, Remus's relationship with Tonks.) I like all three characters in various shades of gray, and you can definitely sell me on a range of characterization choices, depending on setting and circumstance.

To be perfectly honest, Draco is always a prime contender for Shadow_Lover's Next Top Woobie, because I love him and love to see him suffer, but he's not a perfect little martyr. He's a little shit, and I love that about him. He doesn't accept help gracefully, even when he very much needs it.

Sirius doesn't really know how to live in the ordinary world. He went from school to war to prison to hiding to war. He has a lot of anger, pain, and grief to work out and, in some ways, a lot of growing up to do. I'd love to see his need for connection explored.

Like Sirius, Remus is an outsider, but he's had more opportunity to develop coping methods and relationships despite his issues. He's very driven to support and help people. In shipfic with Draco, I'd be very interested in them negotiating the new dynamic of "oh we want to bang each other" rather than "hello, my asshole thirteen-year-old student."

  • Prompt 1: I'd love something set during the war, with either ship forced to work together for whatever reason. Maybe Draco's turned spy for the Order and Sirius or Lupin is assigned to work with him and make sure he doesn't double-cross them. Or he had to run away from Hogwarts or the Death Eaters to protect himself but hasn't quite turned to the Order yet. There is a lot of potential for angsty, emotional hurt/comfort here, or potentially locked-in-a-cabin, reluctantly huddling-for-warmth tropes :D
  • Prompt 2: I would also love something set post-war. I'm fascinated by various takes on how Draco, Sirius, and Remus each reintegrate into wizarding society. Where do they fit in? Where don't fit in? How have they been marked by the war? (hurt/comfort standbys of nightmares, PTSD, eating issues, etc are all A+ options)
  • Prompt 3: Accidental sex pollen driving either or both parties to uncontrollable lust would be particularly fantastic as well. Or any sort of "fuck or die" spell gone wrong situation.

Request 4: Loveless

Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka
Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

So, I like my catboys how I like... well, all of my fave fictional boys: fucked up and in love. I really like the cat ears, but am also totally down for later fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on screen. I know the ages are less than convenient here, and I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out.

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes to take there and I am on board for all of them. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :)

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

I'll confess -- I'm currently rereading, and am only at chapter 85 or so! But I will definitely be caught up by the time works are revealed, so feel free to jump off any part in canon should you so wish to :)

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!).
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? If Seimei comes back for Ritsuka years later, what is their reunion like?


Request 5: 
Togainu no Chi

Rin/Shiki

This is a rough canon, and I’m definitely not anticipating fluff here. These are broken people in a broken world. All the characters in Togainu no Chi are driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways – Rin’s chase of Shiki is a clear mirror of Shiki’s chase of Nano.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead. 

One note – Rin’s age is vague enough in the game that I don’t really want anything pornographic set pre-game, just because that might put him too young for my comfort levels. Other Note – I haven’t seen the anime, so hopefully the AO3 categories worked as intended and we matched on the VN :)

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Let’s suppose an alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 6:
Original Work

Catboy/Male Human
Human Guy/Tentacled Life Form
Incubus/Male Human
Male Assassin/Male Target
Male Master/Male Slave
Male Master/Male Slave/Male Master

In general, for original works especially I have a huge weakness for woobies suffering, hurt/comfort, us-against-the-world, enemies to lovers, and conflicted feelings. I also like desperation – either desperately horny and eager for sex, or desperate to prove themselves, or desperate to survive, or desperate to save each other, desperate to touch each other, desperate just to see each other.

Sex wise, most consent levels are fine for any of these pairings; eager cockslut to nervous uncertainty to sex pollen dubcon to reluctance to obedience situations where consent is irrelevant (so, anything with sexual slavery). I’m not as interested in super violent, completely unenjoyable noncon for Original Works. (I hope that makes sense. I’m happy to clarify further via the mod if it didn’t.) (Exception: Human Guy/Tentacled Life Form. That can be 100% noncon if you want! :D)

Outside of the bedroom, I like quiet, significant moments and gentle, significant touches. Emotional tension is my happy place :) Also, feel free to combine character types here! Like, perhaps the Male Slave is also a Catboy. Or perhaps Tentacled Life Form's 'human guy' is actually a Catboy or Incubus. The Male Assassin might be a Catboy going after a Male Target who is an Incubus, or the Male Human might be enslaved by the Incubus... etc. Many possibilities are open :)

  • Catboy/Male Human: I see the catboy being the sub here, if there are D/s dynamics! I'd be interested in a situation where the human becomes responsible for the catboy in some way. If there is purring involved, I'm 100% on board for that. Feel free to play around with other catlike personality traits -- alternating between being aloof and cuddly, for example! (Also, mating cycles/going into heat, always a good time!)
  • Human Guy/Tentacled Life Form: Like I said above, any consent level is a-okay for this one! Some kinks I particularly like for this pairing are come inflation, sex pollen, forced orgasm, overstimulation, nipple sucking, crying, and oviposition. I'm open to vines/plants too, as well as tentacled creatures. Also... post-coital tentacled cuddles could be fantastic, whether human guy is blissfully sleepy or traumatized and quietly crying :)
  • Incubus/Male Human: I'd love to see some sort of ritual component to this. Maybe the human needs help with something, so he summons a demon and has to pay the incubus's price before getting aid. Or maybe the incubus is magically bound somewhere, and needs the human's help to get free. I'm intrigued by the differences between human and demonic perspectives, behavior, and anatomy. A fantasy, historical, or contemporary version would each be very interesting :)
  • Male Assassin/Male Target: So many fun places to take this! I'd be down for any sort of contemporary, historical, fantasy, or sci-fi setting. A soulmate 'verse could be fantastic here. Other fun questions to explore: is the assassin a professional or an amateur? Is he totally used to killing, or kind of nervous/uncertain about it? Is the target someone who's been attacked before, or is this a new and scary situation? Does the assassination fail because the target is so caught off guard the assassin realizes something isn't right, or because the target is so on top of things he catches the assassin in the act and takes control? (Note: I would very much prefer that neither of them actually get assassinated.)
  • Male Master/Male Slave & Male Master/Male Slave/Male Master: I like pretty, decorative, objectified slaves being alternately cossetted and abused by their owner(s). If there's some kind of "taken captive by enemies" thing going on, that's cool too, even just as backstory! If you want to play kinky dress-up with the slave, I'm very into corsets, nipple clamps, and blindfolds ;)

Request 3: 
DRAMAtical Murder

Koujaku/Noiz
Mink/Noiz

I'm down for a variety of plot choices in this; either both characters in the pairing got successfully Scrapped, or one of them did, or neither of them did. I do think there's a lot of interesting territory to explore with either or both of them Scrapped, since there's such an adjustment period there. Especially with Noiz, going from feeling almost nothing to suddenly feeling All The Things. If you'd like to play up the height and age differences for either ship, be my guest :D

I really enjoy enemies-to-lovers and/or hate sex for Koujaku/Noiz. I like fics where Koujaku's caring nature comes out in response to Noiz being such a weird, isolated trainwreck. But Koujaku's got some trainwreck tendencies too, so... grudging caretaking all around is basically my jam.


Mink/Noiz can be difficult to get together, since they're both such loners. I can see a lot of insecurity and inability to talk about feelings there. And I have a ridiculous weakness for daddy kink dynamics here. (I'm not really into the actual word "daddy" in smut, but the sort of age kink, praise kink, dom/sub thing -- yes please!)

Note - I haven't seen the anime, I've just played DMMD and Re:Connect.

  • Prompt 1: I'd be very interested in pre-canon fic for either pairing -- how might they interact in their roles before everything starts with Aoba?
  • Prompt 2: Could be fun to toss them into the crazy, decadent world of Platinum Jail! What do Koujaku and Noiz or Mink and Noiz get up to in the wild, drug-filled clubs and crowded streets?
  • Prompt 3: ...and what could also be fun is just PWP where Koujaku or Mink punishes Noiz for being a brat, and Noiz is totally into it. Particularly if Noiz is newly able to feel everything, could be very, very fun to get into bondage, spanking, nipple clamps....

Request 4: Harry Potter

Sirius Black/Draco Malfoy
Remus Lupin/Draco Malfoy

Hello, you have reached the "tormented older men/Draco Malfoy" section of my letter! Let's get a canon divergence AU where Sirius and/or Remus lives, yeah? :D I also prefer an "Epilogue, What Epilogue" approach to shipfic here, so I'd prefer nothing canon-compliant with Draco's marriage (or, for Remus/Draco, Remus's relationship with Tonks.) I like all three characters in various shades of gray, and you can definitely sell me on a range of characterization choices, depending on setting and circumstance.

To be perfectly honest, Draco is always a prime contender for Shadow_Lover's Next Top Woobie, because I love him and love to see him suffer, but he's not a perfect little martyr. He's a little shit, and I love that about him. He doesn't accept help gracefully, even when he very much needs it.

Sirius doesn't really know how to live in the ordinary world. He went from school to war to prison to hiding to war. He has a lot of anger, pain, and grief to work out and, in some ways, a lot of growing up to do. I'd love to see his need for connection explored.

Like Sirius, Remus is an outsider, but he's had more opportunity to develop coping methods and relationships despite his issues. He's very driven to support and help people. In shipfic with Draco, I'd be very interested in them negotiating the new dynamic of "oh we want to bang each other" rather than "hello, my asshole thirteen-year-old student."

  • Prompt 1: I'd love something set during the war, with either ship forced to work together for whatever reason. Maybe Draco's turned spy for the Order and Sirius or Lupin is assigned to work with him and make sure he doesn't double-cross them. Or he had to run away from Hogwarts or the Death Eaters to protect himself but hasn't quite turned to the Order yet. There is a lot of potential for angsty, emotional hurt/comfort here, or potentially locked-in-a-cabin, reluctantly huddling-for-warmth tropes :D
  • Prompt 2: I would also love something set post-war. I'm fascinated by various takes on how Draco, Sirius, and Remus each reintegrate into wizarding society. Where do they fit in? Where don't fit in? How have they been marked by the war? (hurt/comfort standbys of nightmares, PTSD, eating issues, etc are all A+ options)
  • Prompt 3: Accidental sex pollen driving either or both parties to uncontrollable lust would be particularly fantastic as well. Or any sort of "fuck or die" spell gone wrong situation.

Request 5: Loveless

Agatsuma Soubi/Aoyagi Ritsuka
Aoyagi Ritsuka/Aoyagi Seimei

So, I like my catboys how I like... well, all of my fave fictional boys: fucked up and in love. I really like the cat ears, but am also totally down for later fic where Ritsuka no longer has his ears, whether or not he loses them on screen. I know the ages are less than convenient here, and I'd prefer Ritsuka be at least 15 before anything more than making out.

I see Soubi/Ritsuka as fluffy, angsty, hesitant, gentle, rough, dubcon, or any combination of the above! There are a lot of different routes to take there and I am on board for all of them. I do like mutual caretaking and hurt/comfort for them :)

Meanwhile, Seimei/Ritsuka goes way darker into dubcon territory. Seimei is pretty creepy and controlling, and Ritsuka's so desperate for his love and attention. Seimei demands complete devotion, and sometimes Ritsuka seems willing to give that.

I'll confess -- I'm currently rereading, and am only at chapter 85 or so! But I will definitely be caught up by the time works are revealed, so feel free to jump off any part in canon should you so wish to :)

  • Prompt 1: I'd love to see Soubi and Ritsuka working through the aftermath of a battle -- maybe it dredged up some painful memories for either of them, maybe there's more physical hurt/comfort, maybe a spell had some lingering aftereffects (could be angsty aftereffects! could be porny aftereffects! dealer's choice!).
  • Prompt 2: Somehow (AU where Soubi never shows up for Rituska?) Ritsuka ends up on the run and in hiding with Seimei. Maybe Seimei brought him with him when he originally left, or he comes back for him later. What do they get up to in hiding together? Does Seimei teach Ritsuka how to act as a Sacrifice (maybe using Nisei to practice on Ritsuka)? If Seimei comes back for Ritsuka years later, what is their reunion like?


Request 6: 
Togainu no Chi

Rin/Shiki

This is a rough canon, and I’m definitely not anticipating fluff here. These are broken people in a broken world. All the characters in Togainu no Chi are driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways – Rin’s chase of Shiki is a clear mirror of Shiki’s chase of Nano.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead. 

One note – Rin’s age is vague enough in the game that I don’t really want anything pornographic set pre-game, just because that might put him too young for my comfort levels. Other Note – I haven’t seen the anime, so hopefully the AO3 categories worked as intended and we matched on the VN :)

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Let’s suppose an alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Dear Jukeboxer,

Hello, and thank you so much for offering one of my favorite songs! I'm so excited to see what you come up with. Trust me -- I'm easy to please. I want to see what inspires you about a song. And I very much hope you have fun with this :)

If you'd like clarification on anything, don't hesitate to ask via the mod!
Cheers,

General Preferences

I'm pretty much up for anything outside my DNWs here. All of my songs have a strong narrative component, so you could bring one of those elements to life -- or you could go with more of an emotional inspiration.

They were also all nominated as songs. If they happen to have music videos, I haven't watched them ;)

I tend to like character-driven fic, heavy on the complex emotions and fraught relationships. If you want to go for something shippy or smutty, I have a slight preference for M/M over other configurations.

Yes, Please!

Centuries - Fall Out Boy

Come on, come on and let me in
The bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints
And this is supposed to match
The darkness that you felt
I never meant for you to fix yourself

 
And I can't stop 'til the whole world knows my name
'cause I was only born inside my dreams
Until you die for me, as long as there's a light, my shadow's over you...

There are two main relationships in this song: the narrator vs. the world, and the narrator vs. you. There's an intriguing blend of adoration and darkness.

And there's a recurring image of moments of the narrator's life captured eternally, unchanging, presumably in song -- from mummified my teenage dreams to And here's the frozen proof: I could scream forever. Even though those moments are frozen, though, life goes on. Reality both contradicts and coexists with memory and legend.

A mythological interpretation could be fun here. Get literal about the legends -- gods and mortals, demons, seelie and unseelie. I like urban fantasy. I also just like contemporary, of course. You've got options :)
 
I Miss You - Blink-182
Listen; Lyrics
 
Where are you?
And I'm so sorry.
I cannot sleep, I cannot dream tonight.
I need somebody and always
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time.

Don't waste your time on me.
You're already the voice inside my head.

Oh, look, it's my adolescence! Seriously, though, this song will always have my love. There's something about the lines Where are you? / And I'm so sorry that just gets to me every fucking time.

We start with the angel from my nightmare, but by the middle of the song, the narrator can't sleep and can't dream. The song is very tightly focused on nighttime, darkness, dreams, wishes, fantasies. And on the narrator's you, of course. It's a desperate, anxious heartbreak.

I'm very interested in both literal and symbolic interpretations of this song. A literal angel from the narrator's nightmare would be very cool to play with. Or the sick strange darkness can be depression and despair. I'd welcome a mental illness exploration here, too, if you want to go that route.

I'd love a hopeful or bittersweet ending. Hell, maybe you'll even stop this pain tonight -- show me the light after the darkness. 
 

Monster - Mumford & Sons

Listen; Lyrics

So we were up
Throwin' dice in the dark
I saw you late, last night, come to harm
I saw you dance in the devil's arms

So fuck your dreams
And don't you pick at our seams
I'll turn into a monster for you, if you pay me enough

I'm unsure whether the narrator is the devil mentioned in the first verse, or if that refers to a third party. I'm really on board with either interpretation.

The song appears to look forward to an inevitable future. Really nothing I could do; a place of no return; the name that our sons will learn; I'll do my best; a few dreams, plowed up. There's an idea of a relationship as gambling, or as fate, but still fueled by passion.

There are entire stories to be told from the line I'll turn into a monster for you, if you pay me enough. I'd very much like to see any of them. And I'm really fascinated by the juxtaposition of I'll do my best and I'll turn into a monster for you

Whipping Boy - Shearwater

Listen; Lyrics

I would have paid just about any price
Just to see him jump, just to see him laugh
I would have washed in the blood of an innocent man

The wolf says, "Boy, if you're gonna be my man
Let's see how you fit in those britches."

I like the ominous violence of it. The explicit and implicit threats. If I told you once, then I told you twice isn't a very friendly phrase to start out with. And of course, there's the whole concept of the whipping boy -- someone who's punished for the faults of others. A cycle of wrongdoing and passed-on violence.

The three verses are distinct moments. In the first, I like the unhealthy violent devotion. In the second, I like the wolf's demand that the boy prove his authority before he exercises it. I'm on the wolf's side here, I think.

And in the world of price-paying and proving and punishing, the river runs on.

The line I debate the most is the refrain: Let the whipping boy ride. Is that good or bad for the whipping boy? Is it a favor, or is it, "let the whipping boy ride so the prince doesn't get hurt"?

Dear Smut Peddler,

Thank you so much for offering one or more of my ships! I love all of these ships and kinks very dearly, and I’m so super excited to see what you come up with.

Rest assured that as long as you use the right kinks for the right ships and stay away from my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, or completely ignore the prompts and just use the requested kinks as your prompts! They’re, uh, plenty evocative all on their own. I'm really in this to get my requested ship(s) + my requested kink(s) -- the prompts are just there for your benefit if you want them.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod!

Cheers,

I like fic of all lengths, so go where the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off – all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book. For on-screen anal, I prefer that my faves bottom (Laurent, Male Champion, Fenris, Lavellan, Rin, Armand).

And smut. I really, really like smut. I’m so excited for this swap, you have no idea.

Okay, so I’m in OTP hell here. I just read all the books this month, and every so often I think about Damen kissing Laurent on the ramparts, or Laurent calling Damen attractive, or Damen saying they hold the center, and I get so suddenly happy my chest hurts. I’m in love with their love. I love how they find strength through sharing their vulnerabilities with each other. I love how they each think the other is so fucking amazing. I love when they surprise each other.

I’m good with get-together or established relationship for these two – because even though they’re together at the end of the books, they’re still figuring out how they work.

Prompt-wise...
I don't need much of a plot here. I’d love to see them taking a break for like a weeklong honeymoon of non-stop sex and cuddling. Or you could lay out a missing scene from somewhere along the campaign. Maybe Laurent has a nightmare while they're in bed together and needs comforting! Maybe directly post-canon he's hovering ridiculously over Damen and his stab wound! Maybe either of them is pushing themselves too hard in the aftermath of Kings Rising, and the other drags them off to their room to force them to take a break. (the break is sex.)

Note: I need Damen and Laurent to be exclusive. They can’t marry other people, they can’t have babies with other people. Just ignore the whole heir thing altogether, haha.

Vines, tentacles, hellhounds, imps, minotaurs, satyrs, Akbal… pick your favorite! If it falls under the “Male Monster” category, I’m on board. I’d prefer if the Champion is still mostly human, and with default male equipment. Bonus points for cat ears and tail, though!! And increased baseline libido. And if he’s shrunk a bit over his travels, to emphasize the size difference between him and the monsters, that’s totally cool too.

I’m down for any level of corruption here (and any level of consent/willingness). For prompts... Perhaps you want to explore the Champion’s first forays into this perverse world – maybe one of the first battles he loses? Or maybe something a little later, when he’s startled to find that he kind of likes bending over for the drunk satyr. I’m really into the minotaurs, too, and it could be fun to explore what the Champion’s life is like post bad-end as the minotaurs’ willing fucktoy.

With Fenris/Anders, I prefer they don’t get quite as vicious with each other as they sometimes do in canon – but I’m a total sucker for enemies-to-lovers, so I’m definitely not looking for uncharacteristic sweetness. I really enjoy fic where Anders’ nature as a healer wins out over his enmity, and he takes care of Fenris in some way.

I’m a fan of Fenris/Cullen either during DA2 or with Fenris somehow meeting up with the Inquisition. They’re both very principled characters, and I can see them really connecting as they try to do the right thing. Cullen’s more of a strategist/leader while Fenris just charges in, so that’s an interesting dynamic to play with too. Also interested to see if Fenris’s tattoos have any interaction with Cullen’s addiction.

Fenris/Dorian – like I said, I’m into enemies-to-lovers, but here I see the enmity likely to be one-sided. Fenris has no reason to like or trust Dorian; Dorian has no reason to dislike Fenris. Dorian’s very driven to improve his homeland and remedy its wrongs, and I think he could see helping Fenris somehow as a symbolic opportunity. Fenris is also more secure in his freedom by the end of DA2 than ten years previously; how does that affect his interactions with the magister?

Note: I do not want any AUs where the other character in the ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.

  • Prompt 1: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Prompt 2: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!

Male Lavellan is my fave Inquisitor for, uh, reasons. Yes, I used two request slots to double the number of kinks for this ship. I’m totally down for any Inquisitor personality. I have a slight preference for rogues or warriors over mage Inquisitors. Name-wise, just call him Lavellan :) If you feel like it, I'd be totally on board for using my dagger-wielding rogue, Corin Lavellan -- otherwise, I'm happy to see the Lavellan you want to write :)

Blackwall/Lavellan is like, the iddiest thing ever to me. Gruff bearded human with slender, pretty elf – sign me up! I’m really interested in his arc, too, and I’d be happy with fic set during the game or post-game. And, um, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in that Gray Warden stamina.

I see a romance with Cullen going much the same way as the canon romance with Cullen; I love, love, love the loyalty!kink and protective aspects of his personality. I’m also very interested in his struggle with control over his addiction.

Any relationship with Solas has to have some weird power dynamics – which I’m 100% in favor of. He’s hiding the fact that he’s literally a god and wants to destroy the world! Not the foundation of a healthy relationship. You’re welcome to either revel in the fucked-upness, or explore the moments where they do connect on a more equal level – I’m on board for all of that.

  • Prompt 1: How about sex in a location very specific to the love interest? I’m sure Cullen and Lavellan could make excellent use of the Commander’s desk. Blackwall and Lavellan could go for a rumble in the hay. And maybe dream!sex with Solas?
  • Prompt 2: Or maybe some classic, exhausted hurt/comfort. Lavellan has an absolutely shitty day out in the field, comes back to Skyhold and has to keep it together by the skin of his teeth through war table meetings and talks with advisors and companions, having to hide just how messed up he is all day long – and then finally getting to let go with his love interest.

…just fuck him up. Tentacle monster, Red Templar, Behemoth, werewolf, Pride demon, Hurlock, ogre, sylvan – hell, Corypheus himself might be fun. If you think a monster will fit with one or more of my requested kinks, go for it! Feel free to take some extreme liberties with anatomical mechanics, just make sure Lavellan’s alive and not too damaged at the end of it.

I’m on board for a pretty wide range of scenarios and willingness/enjoyment levels. In terms of prompts... Maybe he’s fighting the monster when they both stumble into some sort of sex pollen. Maybe Lavellan’s the only one sex-pollen’d. Maybe Lavellan’s been captured by Red Templars and they set a Behemoth on him for kicks. Maybe he gets separated from his companions while in the Fade and runs into unexpected complications. Maybe he and his companions are trapped in a dungeon and need to perform a ritual to escape – Lavellan volunteers, but nobody anticipated exactly what the ritual entailed…

Note: I have a very specific humiliation squick, and I do not want the entire Inquisition or all of Thedas knowing about Lavellan’s encounter with the monster. So either nobody knows, or just some of his companions, or his love interest – a small group. Feel free to have him romantically involved with Blackwall, Cullen, or Solas as in the above requests!

I love the sheer intensity of emotion each of these characters has. When they form connections they do so wholeheartedly. Armand is an eternal teenager – intelligent and refined by the centuries, but still impulsive and sometimes lost. Lestat never quite lost his aristocratic arrogance, and it can be difficult to get past his bold enthusiasm to see his struggles with morality. Well-meaning Louis is possibly best-known for his decades of introspection and brooding; he has a tendency to escape problems rather than solving them.

They’ve all been in and out of obsession with each other over the centuries, and they aren’t always kind to each other. Armand having Claudia executed comes to mind, and of course Louis’s on-again, off-again disgust with Lestat. As vampires they have a long (and long-suffering) view of morality, and I like seeing how they can mesh together despite or because of their complicated history.

I’m open to various degrees of “healthy” relationships in this fandom. Dubcon, manipulation, and mutual manipulation are all welcome. But I’m also very down for realizing how much they really mean to each other, comfort, and caretaking.

Note: I’ve only read through The Vampire Armand, and I’d prefer fic set before the modern-day plot events (well, you can set it present-day, but mostly I’m just not as interested in the various human characters). I’m not sure what Anne Rice’s current stance is on vampire sex mechanics; go ahead and hand-wave it so everything works as it should ;)

  • Prompt 1: Armand demands that Lestat and/or Louis go with him for a night out, so he can see an R-rated movie (or get into some sort of a club?). Because although he’s 500 years old and was turned when he was 17, he always looked young for his age and needs to be accompanied by someone who clearly looks like an adult.
  • Prompt 2: One of the vampires is held captive by one or more of the other requested characters. Maybe Lestat needs Armand’s ancient blood. Maybe Louis’s trying to walk into the sun and Armand’s keeping him trapped for his own good. Maybe it’s a sex thing. Can be chains; can be a locked room; can be just a touch of mind control – enough to keep the captive in compliant while still aware of what’s happening.
  • Prompt 3: One of the requested characters gets drugged – maybe accidentally drinking some bad blood, or maybe targeted by some sort of witchcraft. Delirious and horny, he ends up on another of the requested characters’ doorstep. The other vampire feels obliged to help out, even if helping doesn’t quite go as planned.

This is my first time requesting Original Work, and I’m super excited! In general, I have a huge weakness for woobies suffering and then getting fucked better. Or fucked worse. I also like desperation – either desperately horny and eager for sex, or desperate to prove themselves, or desperate to survive, or desperate to save each other, desperate to touch each other, desperate just to see each other.
 I like immortal or long-lived characters who still retain some sense of childish/teenaged impetuousness, and/or who look fairly young; vampires turned as teenagers, for example.

I’m also just really, really into tiny, pretty guys getting pounded with massive dicks. Or tenderly filled with massive dicks, that works too. They don’t necessarily have to be submissive, though I’m really into that.

Most consent levels are fine for any of these pairings; eager cockslut to nervous uncertainty to sex pollen dubcon to reluctance to obedience situations where consent is irrelevant (so, anything with sexual slavery). I’m not as interested in super violent, completely unenjoyable noncon for Original Works. (I hope that makes sense. I’m happy to clarify further via the mod if it didn’t.)

Catboy/Male Human: I see the catboy being the sub here, if there are D/s dynamics! I’d be interested in a situation where the human becomes responsible for the catboy in some way. Um if there’s purring, I’m cool with that too.

Owner/Owner/Slave and Owner/Slave: I like pretty, decorative, objectified slaves being alternately cossetted and abused by their owners. If there’s some kind of “taken captive by enemies” thing going on, that’s cool too, even just as backstory.

Male Werewolf/Male Vampire: I imagine werewolf blood wouldn’t be a vampire’s first choice of meal. But if he has no other options, what side effects might drinking the werewolf’s blood have? (nausea and weakness, susceptibility to persuasion, or intense animalistic sex drive are all great options.)
shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear ShipSwapper,

Thank you so much for offering one or more of my ships! I love all of these ships very dearly, and I’m so super excited to see what you come up with.

Rest assured that as long as you use a few of my Likes and stay away from my DNWs, chances are I’m going to love my gift. Feel free to use one of my prompts, take only part of a prompt, repurpose a prompt from one canon to fit another, work off any of my general preferences, or just follow your own inspiration.

If you’d like clarification on anything, I’m happy to answer any questions sent via the mod!

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

I like fic of all lengths, so go where the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I tend to like emotionally tense get-together fics and/or complicated hook-ups rather than pure fluff or established relationships. The tension can be due to dynamics between the characters, external forces, or both. Basically, I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, and the “hurt,” whether physical or emotional, is just as important as the “comfort.”

I’m happy with any rating from General Audiences to Explicit. Plot is awesome, plot with porn is awesome, porn without plot is awesome. If you do feel inclined to get smutty, I’m on-board for anal, oral, frottage, handjobs, only one person getting off – all of these definitely count as “real sex” in my book. For on-screen anal, I do prefer that my faves bottom (Mello, Fenris, Maia, Rin, Armand).

Request 1:
Death Note

DN Ships
Light Yagami/L
L/Mello
Light/Mello

I love L's intensity and the contrast between his dazzling intellect and his slovenly appearance. He’s an incredibly skilled investigator, yet sits curled up like a child and is probably extremely malnourished from the candy diet. I like seeing him get tangled up in his cases and racing to keep ahead in the manipulation game – particularly moments where he’s not quite sure he’s really ahead.

Mello’s got a large, intense personality, but there’s still a lot of room for character exploration between the surface notes. He plays the same game as L, but he’s not quite as adept and he hides insecurity behind anger or indifference. I’m interested in his interactions with other characters during the narrative present rather than his school days.

And Light -- possibly my favorite part about him is that he thinks he's doing the right thing. I'd love to see that explored as he builds a twisted relationship with L or Mello.

For either L ship, I'd like a canon divergent AU where he doesn't die; same for either Mello ship :)

I'd also be down for a L/Light/Mello threesome, optionally, if you're into that!

  • Prompt 1: L gets captured by *insert bad guys here* and held hostage. He’s been beaten, interrogated, half-starved, possibly molested for weeks before he’s finally rescued or escapes. Light or Mello takes charge of nursing him back to health. The only problem is, L’s not sure whether he’s any safer in their care after all.
  • Prompt 2: I’d like fic or art that incorporates L's sweet tooth without getting too cracky. Maybe some introspective licking of chocolate syrup from Light or Mello’s belly; maybe working out his frenetic daily schedule so he has time to hit the convenience store for lollipops on the way to the next meeting; maybe he ran out of candy and is seriously starting to crash when Light or Mello saves the day with a slice of cake.
  • Prompt 4: Let’s play dress-up with Mello! Maybe Mello has to dress as a girl for *hand wave* infiltration reasons, maybe his partner (boyfriend, or just partner for the night) just really wants him trussed up in a corset and stockings.
  • Prompt 5: L or Mello survives, but Light still wins. He holds L or Mello captive, to use as he pleases. He might even think this is love.

Requests 2 & 3:
Dragon Age II and Inquisition

Dragon Age Ships

Anders/Fenris
Fenris/Dorian Pavus

So, Fenris is pretty much my DA fandom bicycle. His unique brand of humor, anger, severity, and vulnerability make for a very interesting dynamic with a wide range of other characters.

With Fenris/Anders, I prefer they don’t get quite as vicious with each other as they sometimes do in canon – but I’m a total sucker for enemies-to-lovers, so I’m definitely not looking for uncharacteristic sweetness. I really enjoy fic where Anders’ nature as a healer wins out over his enmity, and he takes care of Fenris in some way.

Fenris/Dorian – like I said, I’m into enemies-to-lovers, but here I see the enmity likely to be one-sided. Fenris has no reason to like or trust Dorian; Dorian has no reason to dislike Fenris. Dorian’s very driven to improve his homeland and remedy its wrongs, and I think he could see helping Fenris somehow as a symbolic opportunity. Fenris is also more secure in his freedom by the end of DA2 than ten years previously; how does that affect his interactions with the magister?

Note – I do not want any AUs where the other character in the ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.
  • Prompt 1: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Prompt 2: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!
  • Prompt 3: Double-dubcon Fade shenanigans! Two characters end up stuck in the same little bubble of the Fade. They both think they’re dreaming, Desire Demon does its subtle sex pollen thing, and they have sex – then they realize it really was the other person.

~
Request 4:
The Goblin Emperor – Katherine Addison

TGE Ships:

Csevet Aisava/Maia Drazhar
Cala Athmaza/Deret Beshelar/Maia Drazhar

I’m fascinated by the negotiation of private and public life in this book, and how constrained Maia is by his power. I’m particularly interested in the constraints Maia places on himself in addition to those prescribed by law and custom.

I love Csevet both in his supportive/loyalty!kink relationship to Maia and in his own right. He’s exceptionally clever and competent, While at the beginning of the book Maia sees him as the perfect, proper elven courier, by mid-book he’s stammering about having enough privacy for his needs, blushing every other chapter, and I swear he was about to cry after Maia was kidnapped.

Especially post-Yuletide, I’m also really interested in Cala and Beshelar, and their evolving dynamics with each other, their positions as nohecharei, and with Maia. The protective loyalty!kink is amazing – as is the unsubtly voyeuristic nature of their relationship to Maia. It’s an incredibly intimate relationship already, and taking it to sexual intimacy seems a natural (though emotionally fraught!) next step. I’m 100% down for both of them getting together with Maia – or, optionally, getting into a complicated OT4 with Csevet, too!

I really need a happy ending in this canon. They’re all so precious and they just try so fucking hard; no matter what happens over the course of the fic, I need them to end up okay. Doesn’t have to be perfect, but hopeful and okay at least.

Also, I love the whole expressive ear movements thing – it’s adorable beyond words.

  • Prompt 1: Maia’s overworking, undereating, and not getting enough sleep by far. One day he’s finally pushed himself too far – he gets through the day’s work, but when he’s back at the Alcethmeret he faints. Cue comfort, caretaking, and scolding from Csevet, Cala and Beshelar, or all of the above!
  • Prompt 2: Setheris’s abuse of Maia was sexual as well. A few months into Maia’s reign, he drunkenly sends a letter that gives Maia flashbacks (possibly also nightmares later?). Csevet, Cala and Beshelar, or all of the above comfort him. Alternative version: Setheris shows up in person and assaults Maia again; then protective comfort ensues.
  • Prompt 3: AU where everything’s the same except goblins go into heat starting in their mid-teens. Half-goblins sometimes do, sometimes don’t. Since Maia gets through the critical years without having one, he assumes it’s not something he has to worry about – until one night in the Alcethmeret he wakes with the overwhelming need for sex. Csevet, Cala, and Beshelar have to figure out what to do. (Like the other prompts, this could work with any of my requested ships!) (Note – I’d prefer if this was something they could contain between the four of them, maybe just clueing Kiru and Telimezh in as well. So the rest of court doesn’t know about Maia’s heats.)
~
Request 5:
Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

TnC Ship:

Rin/Shiki

This is a rough canon, and I’m definitely not anticipating fluff here. These are broken people in a broken world. All the characters in Togainu no Chi are driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways – Rin’s chase of Shiki is a clear mirror of Shiki’s chase of Nano.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead. 

One note – Rin’s age is vague enough in the game that I don’t really want anything pornographic set pre-game, just because that might put him too young for my comfort levels. Other Note – I haven’t seen the anime, so hopefully the AO3 categories worked as intended and we matched on the VN :)

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Let’s suppose an alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 6:
Vampire Chronicles – Anne Rice

VC Ships:

Armand/Lestat de Lioncourt
Armand/Louis de Pointe du Lac
Armand/Lestat de Lioncourt/Louis de Pointe du Lac

I love the sheer intensity of emotion each of these characters has. When they form connections they do so wholeheartedly. Armand is an eternal teenager – intelligent and refined by the centuries, but still impulsive and sometimes lost. Lestat never quite lost his aristocratic arrogance, and it can be difficult to get past his bold enthusiasm to see his struggles with morality. Well-meaning Louis is possibly best-known for his decades of introspection and brooding; he has a tendency to escape problems rather than solving them.

They’ve all been in and out of obsession with each other over the centuries, and they aren’t always <i>kind</i> to each other. Armand having Claudia executed comes to mind, and of course Louis’s on-again, off-again disgust with Lestat. As vampires they have a long (and long-suffering) view of morality, and I like seeing how they can mesh together despite or because of their complicated history.

I’m open to various degrees of “healthy” relationships in this fandom. Dubcon, manipulation, and mutual manipulation are all welcome. But I’m also very down for realizing how much they really mean to each other, comfort, and caretaking.

Note – I’ve only read through The Vampire Armand, and I’d prefer fic set before the modern-day plot events (mostly I’m just not as interested in the various human characters). I’m not sure what Anne Rice’s current stance is on vampire sex mechanics; go ahead and hand-wave it so everything works as it should ;)
 

  • Prompt 1: Armand demands that Lestat and/or Louis go with him for a night out, so he can see an R-rated movie (or get into some sort of a club?). Because although he’s 500 years old and was turned when he was 17, he always looked young for his age and needs to be accompanied by someone who clearly looks like an adult.
  • Prompt 2: One of the vampires is held captive by one or more of the other requested characters. Maybe Lestat needs Armand’s ancient blood. Maybe Louis’s trying to walk into the sun and Armand’s keeping him trapped for his own good. Maybe it’s a sex thing. Can be chains; can be a locked room; can be just a touch of mind control – enough to keep the captive in compliant while still aware of what’s happening.
  • Prompt 3: One of the requested characters gets drugged – maybe accidentally drinking some bad blood, or maybe targeted by some sort of witchcraft. Delirious and horny, he ends up on another of the requested characters’ doorstep. The other vampire feels obliged to help out, even if helping doesn’t quite go as planned.

Request 1:
Dragon Age – All Media Types

Okay, so I’m not even going to say how many hours of the last year I’ve spent playing all three games. I’ll just say: I like complicated characters struggling to find something to hold onto during insane, world-changing events. This is my fandom with the most ships, so I’m going to separate this section out a bit by clusters.

DAO Ships :

Zevran Arainai/Male Mahariel
Zevran Arainai/Male Surana
Zevran Arainai/Male Tabris

My fave Wardens are Tabris, Mahariel, and Surana. (…I really like elves, okay!) I tend to prefer personalities on the diplomatic-to-snarky spectrum rather than straight-up aggressive. As far as names go, I prefer using just their last names. Other than that, I’m totally on board to learn all about the Warden you want to write…

…so long as he’s getting it on with Zevran! Zevran defies expectations, for good or ill, and in a romance with the Warden he finds himself capable of emotions he never imagined wanting, much less having. He has a convenient way of smooth-talking defeat into victory, and a refreshing shamelessness. He’s got tons of confidence and experience going into bed, but once things get emotional he starts needing more support.

  • Prompt 1: Zevran and the Warden live very dangerous lives. I’d love to see them get into a near-miss scenario where one gets injured; blood loss, staggering to safety, having the other frantically patch him up until they can get to the healer, etc. Can be at any point in the game, or a post-game adventure.
  • Prompt 2: I’d love to get some sort of “first time” between these two. Not necessarily the first time they kiss, or the first time they have sex (though I wouldn’t say no to either of those). Maybe the first time they sleep in the same tent after fucking; maybe the first time Zevran breaks out the sex toys; maybe the first time they try bondage, D/s, sex magic from Surana, etc. Maybe the first time the POV character realizes this is something more than a series of one-night stands. Anything – just, a moment of change or newness that they meet together.

DA2 Ships:

Anders/Fenris
Fenris/Cullen Rutherford
Fenris/Dorian Pavus
Fenris/Sebastian Vael

So, Fenris is pretty much my DA fandom bicycle, as you can probably tell /o\ His unique brand of humor, anger, severity, and vulnerability make for a very interesting dynamic with a wide range of other characters.

With Fenris/Anders, I prefer they don’t get quite as vicious with each other as they sometimes do in canon – but I’m a total sucker for enemies-to-lovers, so I’m definitely not looking for uncharacteristic sweetness. I really enjoy fic where Anders’ nature as a healer wins out over his enmity, and he takes care of Fenris in some way.

I’m a fan of Fenris/Cullen either during DA2 or with Fenris somehow meeting up with the Inquisition. They’re both very principled characters, and I can see them really connecting as they try to do the right thing. Cullen’s more of a strategist/leader while Fenris just charges in, so that’s an interesting dynamic to play with too. Also interested to see if Fenris’s tattoos have any interaction with Cullen’s addiction.

Fenris/Dorian – like I said, I’m into enemies-to-lovers, but here I see the enmity likely to be one-sided. Fenris has no reason to like or trust Dorian; Dorian has no reason to dislike Fenris. Dorian’s very driven to improve his homeland and remedy its wrongs, and I think he could see helping Fenris somehow as a symbolic opportunity. Fenris is also more secure in his freedom by the end of DA2 than ten years previously; how does that affect his interactions with the magister?

Fenris/Sebastian is another match of two strongly principled characters, and they both struggle with control over their lives. Fenris is fighting to understand his freedom after a life as a slave, while Sebastian is fighting to restrain himself after his life of debauchery. I’m very on-board for Sebastian, ah, breaking his vows with Fenris – but I don’t think it would be an easy choice for him, y’know?

Note – I do not want any AUs where the other character in the ship owns Fenris as a slave, or where Fenris owns them.

  • Prompt 1: The group encounters a Templar or mage who figures out how to manipulate Fenris’s tattoos and control his body – something he’d thought only Danarius could do. The rest of the party kills the enemies, but Fenris is left severely shaken and needs help pulling himself together again.
  • Prompt 2: I’ll never get enough of Fenris overcoming his touch aversion to realize how much he really craves physical affection. Can be a “trapped in a tiny cold tent together” cuddling scenario, can be a “healing hands/much-needed massage” thing, can be “I always roll over and go straight to sleep after sex but this time I had a nightmare and need to be hugged forever” situation. Or another angle you’d like to go with!
  • Prompt 3: Double-dubcon Fade shenanigans! Two characters end up stuck in the same little bubble of the Fade. They both think they’re dreaming, Desire Demon does its subtle sex pollen thing, and they have sex – then they realize it really was the other person.

DAI Ships:

Blackwall/Male Lavellan
Male Lavellan/Cullen Rutherford
Male Lavellan/Solas

Three cheers for noncanon slash ships! I adore the canon M/M romances, but am hoping in this exchange to see a little bit of what canon didn’t give me. Male Lavellan is my fave Inquisitor for, uh, much the same reasons as I discussed re: the Warden. I’m totally down for any Inquisitor personality. I have a slight preference for rogues or warriors over mage Inquisitors. Like with the Warden, just call him Lavellan :)

Blackwall/Lavellan is like, the iddiest thing ever to me. Gruff bearded human with slender, pretty elf – sign me up! I’m really interested in his arc, too, and I’d be happy with fic set during the game or post-game. And, um, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in that Gray Warden stamina.

I see a romance with Cullen going much the same way as the canon romance with Cullen; I love, love, love the loyalty!kink and protective aspects of his personality. I’m also very interested in his struggle with control over his addiction.

Any relationship with Solas has to have some weird power dynamics – which I’m 100% in favor of. He’s hiding the fact that he’s literally a god and wants to destroy the world! Not the foundation of a healthy relationship. You’re welcome to either revel in the fucked-upness, or explore the moments where they do connect on a more equal level – I’m on board for all of that.

  • Prompt 1: If you want to get pornographic here, how about sex in a location very specific to the love interest? I’m sure Cullen and Lavellan could make excellent use of the Commander’s desk. Blackwall and Lavellan could go for a rumble in the hay. And maybe dream!sex with Solas?
  • Prompt 2: Or maybe some classic, exhausted hurt/comfort. Lavellan has an absolutely shitty day out in the field, comes back to Skyhold and has to keep it together by the skin of his teeth through war table meetings and talks with advisors and companions, having to hide just how messed up he is all day long – and then finally getting to let go with his love interest.

The Goblin Emperor – Katherine Addison

TGE Ships:

Csevet Aisava/Maia Drazhar
Csevet Aisava/Cala Athmaza/Deret Beshelar/Maia Drazhar
Cala Athmaza/Deret Beshelar/Maia Drazhar

I’m fascinated by the negotiation of private and public life in this book, and how constrained Maia is by his power. I’m particularly interested in the constraints Maia places on himself in addition to those prescribed by law and custom.

I love Csevet both in his supportive/loyalty!kink relationship to Maia and in his own right. He’s exceptionally clever and competent, While at the beginning of the book Maia sees him as the perfect, proper elven courier, by mid-book he’s stammering about having enough privacy for his needs, blushing every other chapter, and I swear he was about to cry after Maia was kidnapped.

Csevet, Cala, and Beshelar have to figure out what to do. (Like the other prompts, this could work with any of my requested ships!) (Note – I’d prefer if this was something they could contain between the four of them, maybe just clueing Kiru and Telimezh in as well. So the rest of court doesn’t know about Maia’s heats.)

Request 3:
Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

TnC Ship:

Rin/Shiki

This is a rough canon, and I’m definitely not anticipating fluff here. These are broken people in a broken world. All the characters in Togainu no Chi are driven by their obsessions; Shiki’s obsessed with killing Nano, and Rin’s obsessed with killing Shiki. I’m interested in exploring how the brothers relate to each other in conflicting and reflecting ways – Rin’s chase of Shiki is a clear mirror of Shiki’s chase of Nano.

If they were somehow forced to work together after the game, I think they could perhaps find an uneasy ceasefire. They share a lot of experiences and they’re both frighteningly competent; they can see the value in each other’s skills even if they want each other dead. 

One note – Rin’s age is vague enough in the game that I don’t really want anything pornographic set pre-game, just because that might put him too young for my comfort levels. Other Note – I haven’t seen the anime, so hopefully the AO3 categories worked as intended and we matched on the VN :)

  • Prompt 1: With Akira away with one of the other LIs, and Toshima crumbling on the brink of war, Rin and Shiki realize they’re both too injured/weak/lost/whatever to escape on their own. They have no choice but to work together if they want to survive.
  • Prompt 2: Let’s suppose an alternate version of Shiki’s bad endings where he doesn’t kill Rin mid-game – and instead, Rin ends up taking Akira’s role. I’m very interested in both Bad End 1 (Shiki is an insane, tyrannical drug lord and Rin is his slutty sex slave) or Bad End 2 (Shiki is a slightly less insane military tyrant and Rin is his devoted second in command).
  • Prompt 3: Shiki decides that instead of avoiding Rin, the best way to fuck with him is to actually fuck him. Rin decides he may as well let himself be seduced – he wants Shiki’s attention, after all, and what better way to discover his brother’s vulnerabilities? Cue the rough and dirty Igura-era mutual manipulation sex.

Request 4:
Vampire Chronicles – Anne Rice

VC Ships:

Armand/Lestat de Lioncourt
Armand/Louis de Pointe du Lac
Armand/Lestat de Lioncourt/Louis de Pointe du Lac

I love the sheer intensity of emotion each of these characters has. When they form connections they do so wholeheartedly. Armand is an eternal teenager – intelligent and refined by the centuries, but still impulsive and sometimes lost. Lestat never quite lost his aristocratic arrogance, and it can be difficult to get past his bold enthusiasm to see his struggles with morality. Well-meaning Louis is possibly best-known for his decades of introspection and brooding; he has a tendency to escape problems rather than solving them.

They’ve all been in and out of obsession with each other over the centuries, and they aren’t always <i>kind</i> to each other. Armand having Claudia executed comes to mind, and of course Louis’s on-again, off-again disgust with Lestat. As vampires they have a long (and long-suffering) view of morality, and I like seeing how they can mesh together despite or because of their complicated history.

I’m open to various degrees of “healthy” relationships in this fandom. Dubcon, manipulation, and mutual manipulation are all welcome. But I’m also very down for realizing how much they really mean to each other, comfort, and caretaking.

Note – I’ve only read through The Vampire Armand, and I’d prefer fic set before the modern-day plot events (mostly I’m just not as interested in the various human characters). I’m not sure what Anne Rice’s current stance is on vampire sex mechanics; go ahead and hand-wave it so everything works as it should ;)
 

  • Prompt 1: Armand demands that Lestat and/or Louis go with him for a night out, so he can see an R-rated movie (or get into some sort of a club?). Because although he’s 500 years old and was turned when he was 17, he always looked young for his age and needs to be accompanied by someone who clearly looks like an adult.
  • Prompt 2: One of the vampires is held captive by one or more of the other requested characters. Maybe Lestat needs Armand’s ancient blood. Maybe Louis’s trying to walk into the sun and Armand’s keeping him trapped for his own good. Maybe it’s a sex thing. Can be chains; can be a locked room; can be just a touch of mind control – enough to keep the captive in compliant while still aware of what’s happening.
  • Prompt 3: One of the requested characters gets drugged – maybe accidentally drinking some bad blood, or maybe targeted by some sort of witchcraft. Delirious and horny, he ends up on another of the requested characters’ doorstep. The other vampire feels obliged to help out, even if helping doesn’t quite go as planned.
