Dear Trick or Treater,

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

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

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

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

Happy Halloween,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

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

For fic:

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

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

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

For art:

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

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

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

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

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Ao no Exorcist

Okumura Rin

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

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

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

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

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

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

Link

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 3: Bungou Stray Dogs

Nakahara Chuuya
Akutagawa Ryuunosuke
Nakajima Atsushi

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 4: Final Fantasy XV

Noctis Lucis Caelum

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 5: Loveless

Aoyagi Ritsuka

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

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

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

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

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

back to top ^^

Request 6: Mystic Messenger

Seven

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

back to top ^^

Request 7: Naruto

Gaara

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

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

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

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

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

back to top ^^

Request 8: One Punch Man

Speed-of-Sound Sonic

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

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

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

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

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

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

back to top ^^

Request 9: Raven Cycle

Noah Czerny

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

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

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

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

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

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

back to top ^^

Request 10: The Royal Tutor

Licht von Granzreich
Leonhard von Granzreich

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

  • 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

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

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.

shadow_lover: (price)

Dear Writer,

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

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

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

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

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

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

Yes, Please!

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

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.

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.

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.

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,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

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

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

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

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

  • Tentacles

Do Not Want

  • Animal harm/death
  • Crossovers/fusions
  • Extreme underage (15+ is fine)
  • First or second person POV
  • Infidelity, main ships breaking up*

  • 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.

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 2: Final Fantasy XV

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chocobro Ship Prompts

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

Enemies to ???? Ship Prompts

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

Request 3: Loveless

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 4: Mystic Messenger

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 5: Yuri!!! on Ice

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

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

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

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

Also, please no career-ending injuries.

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

Dear Writer,

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

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

General Preferences

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!!)

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 2: Final Fantasy XV

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chocobro Ship Prompts

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

Enemies to ???? Ship Prompts

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

Request 3: Naruto

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 4: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

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

  • Shiki/Rin

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

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

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

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

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

shadow_lover: (Default)


Dear Smut Swapper,

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

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

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

Cheers,
shadow_lover

General Preferences

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

For fic:

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

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

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

For art:

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

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

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

Yes, Please!

Requests 1-2: Bungou Stray Dogs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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: 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.

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

Request 9: Yuri!!! on Ice

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

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

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

Also, please no career-ending injuries.

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

shadow_lover: (Default)

Dear Chocolatier,

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

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

Happy Valentine's Day,

General Preferences

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

For fic:

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

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

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

For art:

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

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

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

Yes, Please!

Request 1: Bungou Stray Dogs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 2: Captive Prince

  • Damen/Laurent

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

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

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

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

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

Request 3: Final Fantasy XV

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 4: Loveless

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

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

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

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

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

Request 5: Night Sun Tarot Deck

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

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

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

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

Page of Swords [image]

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

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

Knight of Wands [image]

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

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

Three of Pentacles [image]

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

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

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

Request 6: Raven Cycle

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

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

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

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

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

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

Request 7: Togainu no Chi (Visual Novel)

  • Rin/Shiki

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

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

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

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

Request 8: Yuri!!! on Ice

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

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

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

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

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