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.

Yes, Please!

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

back to top ^^

Request 3: DRAMAtical Murder

  • Koujaku/Noiz
  • Mink/Noiz
  • Koujaku/Mink/Noiz
  • Virus/Trip/Noiz
  • 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.

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.

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 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 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: 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 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!

  • 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
  • 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
  • Tentacles

Do Not Want

  • Animal harm/death
  • Crossovers/fusions
  • Extreme underage (15+ is fine)
  • First or second person POV
  • Infidelity, main ships breaking up*
  • Main character death, graphic gore, permanent maiming/incapacitation**
  • Main ships with OCs (side character OCs are fine!)
  • Pregnancy, requested characters as parents
  • Scat, watersports, emetophilia, rimming, sounding
  • Setting-change AUs, role-reversal AUs, gender identity AUs

*Infidelity Exception: If relevant, Noctis can still be technically betrothed to Luna -- just treat it more as a political thing, or don't mention it.

**Maiming/Death Exceptions: Rin can lose his leg like in canon. Gaara can have died and come back like in canon.

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 4: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

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

  • 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.

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 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: 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.
  • Prompt 7: 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 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: Oh no, Luna's gone missing. Noctis will just have to marry Ravus instead.
  • Prompt 6: 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 7: Instead of being in the crystal or whatever for ten years, Noctis is held captive by Ardyn for one year.
  • Prompt 8: 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. "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.

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.

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,
shadow_lover

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,

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.

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 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!

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 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: 
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.
shadow_lover: (promise)
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,
shadow_lover

0. 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 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 :)

Same Lavellan preferences apply as in the above requests! Again, if you want a specific model, I’m fond of Corin – but I’m more than happy to read about other Lavellans as well. And…

…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!

  • 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.

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.)

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

Note: edited Oct. 29 to clarify AU preferences in General Preferences and DNWs!

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for offering one or more of my fandoms! I’m thrilled at the opportunity to get new fic for any of my requests – I love all of these characters dearly, whether they’re nostalgic favorites from my teens or new friends I fell for this year.

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 mods!

Happy Yuletide,

General Preferences

I like fic of all lengths, so go where the story takes you! Past and present tense are both cool too. I’m mostly a slash fan and I’ve listed a few preferred ships for each request. That being said, if the ships don’t work for you I’d also be happy with more open-ended interpretations of any of my prompts or “Yes, Please!” items :)

For shipfic I 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.”

For each fandom, I tried to give one sweeter prompt, one darker prompt, and one smuttier prompt (though the lines do get kinda blurry). 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 (Maia, Rin, Armand, Vanyel).

I'm really picky on AUs. I like them in theory, but since my favorite parts about each of these canons are the characters and the particular dynamics between the characters,
 I need that to get translated into the AU. I like when characters have the same basic backstories as in canon, and the same general positions relative to each other. I also am not a fan of Mundane AUs -- when characters from a world with magic or sci-fi elements get transplanted into a world without those elements, it lowers the stakes for me and I lose interest. Sticking to canon-verse AUs or canon divergence is a safer bet!

 

Yes, Please!

  • Certain A/B/O tropes: claiming, heats, knotting

*Exception: For TGE, you don’t have to break off Maia’s betrothal to Csethiro; just don’t make it a focal point.

Request 1:
The Goblin Emperor – Katherine Addison

  • Characters: Maia Drazhar, Csevet Aisava

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; he’s reluctant to let those close to him know when he’s suffering, and he tries so hard not to be an imposition even when his guards and servants would gladly help him.

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.

I requested Maia and Csevet, and would love something pairing them together – Csevet was there for Maia every step of the way from Chapter 1 to the final page, and I finished the book sailing that ship off into the sunset. I’d also be interested in a complicated OT4 with Maia, Csevet, Beshelar, and Cala, mostly focused on everyone protecting and loving Maia.

I really need a happy ending in this canon. Maia is the cinnamon roll I never knew I needed in my life, and Csevet just tries 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.

  • Preferred ships: Csevet/Maia; Beshelar/Cala/Csevet/Maia

So the rest of court doesn’t know about Maia’s heats.)

I think it’s an easy step from their obsessions and manipulations to get to incest if you’d like to get shippy, and I’d definitely be on board for that. 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. (Pre-game unrequited pining and UST are totally fine, just no actual sex acts during that time period, please!) 

Note – I haven’t seen the anime, so hopefully the AO3 categories worked as intended and we matched on the VN :)

  • Preferred ships: Rin/Shiki
  • 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.

Request 3:
Valdemar Series – Mercedes Lackey

  • Characters: Vanyel Ashkevron, Tylendel Frelennye, Krebain, Leareth

Reading The Last Herald-Mage was a formative experience for teenaged shadow_lover. Vanyel is the woobiest woobie of all time (no really, FFA had a contest). I love the indulgent roller coaster of extreme Hurt/Comfort; I love how tragically misunderstood Vanyel is; I love how his solution to feeling alone is to push everyone further away; I love when he at last gets wrapped in blankets and taken care of.

There are two main directions you can go with fic for this request, and that mostly depends on what ships you pick. Leareth/Vanyel and Krebain/Vanyel are predatory, manipulative, violent relationships – with a fair amount of seduction and temptation as well. Tylendel and Vanyel are a decidedly happier route, despite some codependency issues. They genuinely love and want to protect each other. Lifebonds aren’t a quick road to a perfect relationship, but I believe that given more time they could have really grown together.

In all of his relationships, Vanyel’s driven by his sense of duty and his fear of being alone. Both of those traits can push him into doing great things; they can also push him down some very unhealthy paths. I love the moments of vulnerability behind his icy exterior, and I’m equally fond of seeing him broken apart and put back together.

For Tylendel/Vanyel, I like Tylendel Lives!AUs. You’re welcome to leave out any characters not in the pair you choose to focus on.
 

  • Preferred ships: Leareth/Vanyel; Krebain/Vanyel; Tylendel/Vanyel
  • Prompt 1: I’d love a Tylendel Lives AU where Vanyel still gets Chosen; since Tylendel has been training years longer he goes on his Circuit first, then a couple of years later Vanyel goes on Circuit with Tylendel as his mentor. Anything from that year on the road together would be awesome – maybe they’re snowed in and have to keep warm, maybe one of them gets injured in battle, maybe Vanyel’s insecure and feels like he has to work extra hard to impress Tylendel.
  • Prompt 2: Tylendel Lives!AU. When Krebain asks Vanyel to join him to save the village, Vanyel accepts. He spends a week, two weeks, a month in Krebain’s grasp before Tylendel (and Savil, the Hawkbrothers, whoever else) manages to rescue him. You’re welcome to focus on his time in captivity, the ensuing trauma recovery, or both ;)
  • Prompt 3: Sex magic! Mind-blowing, completely overstimulating sex magic. Can be Tylendel showing his new boyfriend some tricks he’s picked up, or Krebain or Leareth tormenting their captive pet. Any of the ships work great – I just want to see cold, lonely Vanyel completely undone and panting for more.

I love the sheer intensity of emotion each of these characters has. When they form connections they do so wholeheartedly.

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. If you pick one of the ships below that doesn’t include all three, you can leave the others out of the fic.
 

  • Preferred ships: Armand/Marius, Armand/Lestat, Armand/Louis, Armand/Lestat/Louis
  • Prompt 1: Armand demands that Lestat and/or Louis – or Marius – go with him for a night out, so he can see an R-rated movie (or get into some sort of a club?).
