Hi! This is so exciting, whatever you make happen, I am ALREADY DELIGHTED. I'm still pretty new to yuletide (this is only my second year) so I'll try and make this letter reasonable and not too confusing.General:Things I Like:
Character studies/exploration, getting-together, first times, AUs (aaaaall AUs, from canon divergences to full on Werewolf Coffee Shops In Space ones), tropes, friendships, female characters, cameos from characters in the wider canon where applicable, crack, slow-burn/build, domestic, slice-of-life, vignettes, references to background pairings. Plots are great if you're that kind of writer, but meandering nothing-much-happens fics are awesome with me if you can't (those are the kind I write tbh).Things I Don't Like:
Major character death, dubcon, noncon, extremely bloody violence/gore, uncontrollably schmaltzy fluff (some fluff is fine, don't get me wrong), sad endings, alcoholism/drug addiction (use of either is fine, just not addiction), character bashing, A/B/O, extreme daddy issues, hurt/comfort as the sole focus of the fic, infidelity, unrequited pining.Other Stuff:
Feel free to do any rating you like from G to hardcore smut murder R stuff. Everything/anything's fine! If you want to do porn, I like: spanking, fingering, rimming, riding and lots of kissing. Request-Specific:Poldark series by Winston GrahamCharacters:
Demelza Carne, Caroline Penvenen, Ross Poldark, Dwight Enys
Okay, so first of all, I have only read up to book six aka The Four Swans
. I haven't read any further so references to events/characters after that will be lost on me/constitute spoilers!
I must admit, I asked for this in the absolute hope I'd be able to get my OT4, aka Ross/Demelza/Dwight/Caroline. I would absolutely love a story about the four of them being in this amazing weirdly functional relationship given how faily they all are individually, in whichever way you'd like to make that happen. Whether it's them sorting it all out, or an established thing where they're all living in a lovely home being a married OT4, or an established AU OT4 with some kind of college vampire bakery thing going on, that's all fine and good.
If you really don't want to do that, I also ship Ross/Demelza, Dwight/Caroline, Dwight/Ross, Dwight/Demelza, Caroline/Demelza and Caroline/Ross; if you want to do any combination of those, either as pairings or friendships, that would be awesome. Infidelity is an awkward one with me, though, so if that's sort of coming up, I'd like it to be consensual with all other parties involved. Or just write me fics where everyone is bros and it's the best.Half Life Trilogy - Sally GreenCharacters:
Gabriel, Nathan Byrn
Right, so, I absolutely don't want character bashing in my fics, but if you could just... not feature Annalise that much, I would be super fine with that
I'm a huge Gabriel/Nathan shipper, so something featuring that would be lovely, but if you just want to write them as friends that's fine too. Futurefic after all this has been kind of sorted, or a vignette set during one of the books would be great. If you'd rather do a character study for one of them that's cool too; I'd love some background on Gabriel or just anything from his POV. When it comes to Nathan, the ending of Half Wild
triggered the shit out of me, so tread carefully around his dad/avoid that area completely? Also fluff AUs where everything is great and they just make out a whole bunch all the time would ALSO BE OKAY WITH ME.LumberjanesCharacters:
, Jen, Mal, Molly
I just read the first trade paperback of this and it was the MOST DARLING, so things about this would be LOVELY!!!
I adore Jen, so anything about Jen would be cool, like, her looking after the Lumberjanes and loving them or just wanting to strangle the shit out of them, or what she does when she's not being a camp counsellor person, or some kind of hilarious forbidden love story with that dude from the other camp, or a romance thing with an original male/female character of your choice, or her joining the Lumberjanes for adventures, that kind of thing. Jen is faaaaaabulous.
Feel free to do character study things for Mal or Molly, but I'd also like something involving their obvious friendship, or lbr some pre/femslash stuff, because I feel like there's something there! Whichever you'd like to do, although I do ship this so much, so, shippy things would be nice :) But if you just want to have one of them as the focus of a story of all the Lumberjanes buggering about in the woods disrupting murder death cults, that's cool too.Jack Reacher Series - Lee ChildCharacter:
I totally got a story as a treat last year and it was amaze, so I'm popping my request back in again just in case it pays off for a second time, because I love Reacher way way too much. So I'm going to copy over what I said last year:
I love the ridiculous and wonderful character that is Jack Reacher: okay, he kills a lot of people and stamps about being uber manly, BUT ALSO he is endearingly righteous and has really weirdly strong opinions on crockery and although claims that he buys new clothes every three days and he doesn’t care what he wears, he will spend the rest of the book bitching about whatever shoes/shirt he had to buy. And I find that charming. Also he is an actual gentleman to women and he isn’t homophobic or racist or any of the other shitty things other masculine heroes do in these kinds of books. So I like that a lot, and would like that awesome charming hulking failboatiness to be in the fic.
Ideas for things:
- Reacher really, really likes coffee. If you just want to write about him drinking coffee and wandering about thinking about coffee and crockery, like Lee Child so often does, I’d be fine with that.
- A character study of whatever aspects/emotions you like, with brooding mumbling ridiculous Reacher.
- This is cracky as all hell, but Reacher spends a lot of time wandering around highways, where America seems to have all those “WORLD’S LARGEST…” things. So if you want Reacher visiting some kind of hilarious museum or weird artefact, that would be fun.
- Lee Child basically wrote the worst sex scene in the world ever
. So sex scenes that are not hilariously painful would be good fun. You can make up whatever OC you want or if you’ve read stuff with Frances Neagley in, I love her.
- I have a cosy headcanon where Reacher is bi, so a m/m fic of some kind (or a m/m/f fic of some kind) would be awesome.DC BombshellsCharacters:
Maggie Sawyer, Kate Kane, Bette Kane, Mera
So, I just want more of this absolutely amazing
series, because it is so so so good for me. So character studies for any one of these women (Maggie being a badass 1940s cop! Bette being a baseball player with her cousin! Mera and her underwater kingdom! Kate deciding to be a vigilante!) would be wonderful. Background stuff set pre-series would also be great, like Kate and Renee in Spain, or how Kate and Maggie met, things like that.
I totally ship Kate/Maggie, if you hadn't noticed, so if you're writing about them or Bette, I'd like references to that! If you choose Mera, I do ship her and Diana, but don't worry if you don't want to write that, although their friendship would be nice.
An AU where Kate and Maggie do go have that puppy farm thing together would also be darling. Or where Bette is a superheroine in this world too - because she doesn't seem to be yet - or where Bette and Kate are kickass lady baseball players who win endless leagues of awesome. (I don't know much about baseball, but I like the idea of it).
Basically, just anything set in this universe being amazing, because I love it so, so much. Cameos from anyone else who's featured in the Bombshells lines of comics/merch, or who isn't, would be great.Descendants
I love this film both ironically and unironically, because it's ridiculous, but I genuinely love it.
Feel free to darken things up from the Disney shininess, because there's no way that the Isle of the Lost isn't brutal and horrible, and Mal and Evie clearly have loads of damage from their mothers. And frankly Ben doesn't seem entirely undamaged from his own parents, let's face it.
Things I ship: Mal/Ben, Mal/Evie, Mal/Jay, Jay/Carlos, Ben/Jay, Evie/Lonnie, Mal/Audrey, Evie/Audrey.
Feel free to do any of those as ships or friendships; I have strong headcanon that Evie is gay, or at the very least bi, but never thought that was an option before because her mother wanted her to marry a prince so much.
Anything exploring their lives before coming to Auradon would be great, or anything during/post movie, or ridiculous AUs that are different altogether (hipster sulky art student Mal, for example, would be the most fun
). And having our four villain kids as family is important to me, or the four of them adopting Ben, would be great.
