Dear Fandom5k Writer,

Thank you for writing for me and having a look at my letter. My letters always get stupidly long, but I prefer listing a whole lot of stuff in the hope that my writer likes some of the things I mentioned, rather than only listing two prompts they might hate. Obviously I don't expect you to include every single thing I mention in this letter, that wouldn't even be possible. I've got some general likes and dislikes listed - those are the important bits, really. They're followed by a list of kinks I like, should you feel inclined to write porn, and some fandom-specific prompts, but if those don't work for you - as long as you include a thing or two that I like and don't include my DNWs, I'm sure I will love whatever you write for me. :D

Please don't get hung up on the "genres" I requested. I just picked some that sounded closest to the kinds of fic I like, but I'd really rather you simply used some of my prompts or general likes to write a fic than worry about whether or not your fic really fits one of those genres. Since this is a 5k minimum exchange, I feel like I should say that while I absolutely adore plotty casefics and the like, I'm equally fond of long getting together fics that simply explore the characters' relationship in greater detail, without necessarily needing a big complicated plot, or fics that explore how that relationship develops over time. I'll also take 5k of porn as long as that porn also tells me something about the characters' relationship. I'm not really into super fluffy curtainfic, though. 5k of my ships banging is good, 5k of my ship sitting on the couch and cuddling isn't really my jam.

Some fandom-specific sections turned out longer than others, but that's only because I had more ideas for these fandoms. I would be absolutely delighted to receive a fic for any of these fandoms. :D

I use the same name on AO3 and tumblr as here.

Things I like to read about:
  • first time/getting together: slow burn, pining, UST finally getting resolved, but also antagonistic hate sex or casual hookups that are only later followed by feelings
  • developing relationships: relationship conflicts after the characters got together, trying to figure out how to make things work, some things maybe not working at first, temporary breakups, basically anything that doesn't assume that first time sex -> perfect relationship
  • porn, especially porn with feelings/porn that says something about their relationship (see list below for kinks I like)
  • enemies to lovers, partners to lovers
  • reluctant allies grudgingly starting to like each other
  • non-verbal expressions of affection
  • familiarity, intimacy, characters getting to know each other better (their habits, their hangups etc.)
  • pre-canon/background stories
  • post-canon fic
  • canon divergence
  • casefic
  • moral dilemmas, characters having to question/go against their principles
  • loyalty, devotion, trust, but also trust/commitment issues
  • obsessive, codependent, complicated relationships
  • unhealthy/unusual relationships that should be a trainwreck, but work for the characters involved
  • us-against-the-world
  • villains/sociopaths in love, bad guys who would literally burn down the rest of the world for each other
  • jealousy, possessiveness
  • age differences
  • competence, characters being smart and skilled and good at what they do; characters with different skill sets complementing each other
  • hurt/comfort (after injuries/exhaustion, not so much with illness)
  • angst: self-doubts, guilt, shame, internalised homophobia, nightmares, fears, self-destructive tendencies, alcohol abuse ...
  • infidelity (not between my requested ships, but one half of my ship cheating on their previous partner with the other half of my ship)
  • outside POVs, different POVs than in canon (more "usual" POVs are great, too)
  • I like darker elements (violence, murder, noncon/dubcon, manipulation, depression, whatever fits your plot and isn't on my DNW list), but I'd prefer a happy or semi-happy ending. Feel free to make me bawl my eyes out, but please cheer me up again afterwards.

Do Not Wants:
  • character death of characters I like (random side characters or antagonists dying is fine)
  • serious illnesses, permanent injuries (blood and wounds that will heal again are fine)
  • completely tragic/bleak endings
  • animal death/cruelty
  • genderbend of any kind, mpreg, A/B/O, characters being werewolves/vampires/anything than what they are in canon
  • unrequested ships (including canon ships)
  • unrequested crossovers or fusions
  • complete AUs (canon divergence is fine, but please no high school AUs, coffee shop AUs, in space AUs, groundhog day AUs etc.)
  • permanently unrequited love or permanent breakups for my ships
  • gen/pre-slash (I've only requested ships for this exchange)
  • unnecessary epithets, please use characters' names/pronouns unless their name isn't known to the POV character
  • 1st and 2nd person fic (unless the canon itself is in 1st person, then it's fine)
  • for porn: detailed kink negotiation, safewords for scenes that don't involve consent play; scat, watersports, coming in pants, crossdressing, feminisation, body modification, ageplay/infantilisation
Kinks I like to read about:
  • anal, oral, fingering, rimming, intercrural, and frottage are all great
  • biting, bruising, marking, branding
  • asphyxiation/choking/breathplay
  • rough/angry sex, hate sex, fighting/sparring leading to sex
  • dressed sex, dressed/naked, clothes kink (suits, uniforms, gloves, boots etc.), neat characters being dishevelled for once, casual characters cleaning up nicely
  • size kink, strength kink
  • D/s (for my requested ships I prefer casually developing kink rather than minutely negotiated, formalised BDSM; if anything under-negotiated kink is a plus for me)
  • bondage, chains, ropes, collars
  • spanking, flogging, riding crops
  • gun play, knife play, blood play
  • consent play
  • dirty talk (including the humiliating kind), voice/accent kink
  • banter, teasing
  • hand kink; fisting
  • stubble/beard burn
  • messiness (sweat, come play, dishevelled hair/clothes)
  • characters being overwhelmed, begging for more, becoming speechless ...
  • sex on tables, against walls, on the floor, on a chair, in the shower ... (sex in beds is great, too)
  • masturbation/fantasising about the other before getting together
  • competence kink, admiration
  • praise kink
  • scars and their history
  • oral fixation (while smoking, drinking, talking ...)
  • sharing cigarettes, clothes, food ...
  • sleep-related themes: waking each other from nightmares, falling asleep on each other's shoulder etc.


The Raven Cycle

I've requested several ships for this fandom, so ship-specific prompts are below. In general, my endgame ships are Gansey/Ronan and Declan/Adam, but I also ship pretty much any combination of Niall/Ronan/Declan/Gansey (or rather any combination in which Ronan is present). Feel free to combine any of these ships if that works for you. I have the biggest soft spot for Lynch family stuff, even if you don't want to write any incest ships. Declan and Ronan's relationship, their relationship with their father, how everything changed when Niall died, if there's maybe some way Declan and Ronan might reconcile in the future. I find Ronan's dream magic incredibly interesting, so I'd love to see anything about that, and I love the Barns. I'm slightly less interested in the whole Cabeswater and Glendower stuff, though I don't mind it being included as long as it's not the main focus.

I still haven't read the newest book, but I've seen my fair share of spoilers and don't mind if you mention events that happen in the last book, but I would prefer not to get a fic that requires in depth knowledge of the last book to make sense.

I don't ship Ronan/Adam and Blue/Gansey, so I'd be very grateful if those ships could just not appear at all in my gift. I do love Ronan and Adam as friends, though, so I'm always here for friendship moments between them. Same for Adam and Gansey.

Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch
  • any fic about the beginnings of Ronan and Gansey's friendship: how Gansey befriended Ronan, what Ronan was like before his father died, how they grew so close etc.
  • Gansey at the Barns, Gansey meeting Niall and Declan, Gansey's wonder and awe at the place
  • anything set around the time of Niall's death: Ronan's immediate reaction, how he changed afterwards, how Gansey felt about the whole thing, when exactly Ronan moved into Monmouth etc. If you want to include Declan in this as well, I'd love that.
  • creepy dream magic, Ronan's nightmares, Ronan's dreamworld, Ronan and Gansey being there for each other on insomniac nights
  • getting together fic! I always love those. I'd especially be interested to see if/how their relationship changes once sex becomes a part of it, and how exactly that happened. I'm good with any scenario for this - Ronan being in denial about being in love with his best friend and Gansey going for it, Gansey being a bit repressed and Ronan going for it, slow UST build-up until they just can't stay away from each other ... Whatever works for you.
  • what if they had already started a sexual relationship before Niall's death, but Niall's death put an end to that? Because Ronan was depressed and not even remotely in the mood, because he needed a friend rather than a lover, because Gansey felt like he had to take care of Ronan now and didn't want to take advantage of him ... I'd love to see that idea explored. Although I would of course be happiest if they eventually got back together.
  • outside POVs: the rest of the gang, Kavinsky, Declan and Matthew, Gansey's family ... Bonus if people already assumed they were together even before they were.
  • I'm always here for plotty fics that continue the canon storyline, just with less of the 'true love' and Blue/Gansey stuff that I don't like about canon. ;) Especially if you write something about Gansey dying and then somehow being brought back to life, for example by Ronan dreaming him back to life. I'd love to see how Ronan deals with losing him (probably really, really badly), how dying would change Gansey, what Gansey would do with himself with his Glendower quest over etc.
  • generally, this ship is made for D/s, so if you want to write something kinky in that direction, go for it. And while dom!Gansey is kind of the more obvious thing to go with (and I love it), I don't mind Ronan topping Gansey every now and then.
  • I'd love to see Ronan taking care of Gansey because most of the time it's the other way around, but I think they both need each other equally.

Declan Lynch/Adam Parrish
  • first meetings/first impressions, maybe something like Declan giving Adam a ride at some point (potentially to have a talk with that new kid Ronan and Gansey befriended)
  • bonding over how much of a pain in the ass Ronan can be
  • they do talk a lot on the phone, since Ronan makes Adam take his calls, so maybe they somehow end up bonding a little that way? Talking about other stuff than only Ronan at times? Realising they actually really like each other? Maybe Adam once accidentally took Ronan's phone home and Declan calls? Maybe Declan actually starts calling Ronan's phone on purpose because he wants to talk to Adam?
  • anything set post-canon: they could meet again when they're both undergrads or at law school or even later when they're both working as lawyers or something similar, and they end up hooking up a few times and then hooking up more and more often until they accidentally stumble into a relationship. I can definitely see both of them as the kind of guys who'd gradually go from a casual hook-up with no strings attached to something that gets increasingly serious. (I do ship them during canon, but I don't really see them getting serious at that time, if that makes sense? I think Adam needs to be a lot more content with his life in general before he could manage to have a serious, long-term relationship.)
  • generally anything about how sensible Declan and Adam both are about money and careers and how much they'd appreciate that in each other, but also the fact that they've been/felt unloved for a long time (and how they're both emotionally stunted enough that they could probably grow closer over time without scaring each other off).
  • if you include Ronan and Gansey eventually finding out about their relationship and being utterly horrified by it, I would love you forever. (If you also ship Ronan/Gansey, I'd love to see Adam and Gansey talking about the perks and annoyances of dating a Lynch. Or Ronan having a protective fit because Adam is his friend and in his opinion Declan is in no way good enough for Adam.)

Declan Lynch/Ronan Lynch
  • anything about how their relationship changed with Niall's death. How close were they before? Was Declan ever bitter about Ronan being Niall's favourite? Or were they especially close since Niall was often gone for a long time? Canon does, after all, include a line about how they "stopped being friends" after Niall's death. Also, in which regards do they maybe remind each other of their father after his death? I can imagine that especially Ronan would hate those moments when Declan looks or sounds or behaves like Niall.
  • something dealing with Declan's own grief for his father and how he kind of bottled it up because he felt like he had to take care of his family instead of feeling sorry for himself; maybe combined with some bitterness about Ronan behaving like he's the only one who lost someone
  • if you can get them to make up in any way, even a little bit, that would be beautiful.
  • once they can return to the Barns, I'd love to see Declan actually going there. To reminisce, to get old family pictures, to see his mother if she's still there ... and if Ronan happens to be there, well. Go from there. (I wrote a fic about that myself, but I'd love to read other people's take on this idea as well.)
  • I'd love to see either of them getting protective about the other (because only a Lynch can beat up a Lynch, right?)
  • quick, guilty, shameful, we'll-never-talk-about-this sex of any kind with desperate clinging to each other before they go back to not being able to have a civilised conversation
  • I'd love to see a fic set after Gansey's death, with Declan trying to be there for Ronan and Ronan probably not being very good at accepting his help. Or maybe he would actually grow closer to Declan again? I'd prefer if Gansey eventually came back to life somehow, but you don't have to include that explicitly in your fic.

Rivers of London

I really love the setting of these books, I'm incredibly fond of many of the characters, I'm crazy about Peter and Nightingale's relationship, and I really love Peter's narration style (the self-deprecation, the irony, the pop culture references, his love for London and for architecture). I love worldbuilding for this fandom, especially anything related to the history of the Folly (because I love the Folly a lot), and Peter's admiration (fanboy crush) for Nightingale. I like it when Peter and Nightingale are both being emotionally constipated and not very good at talking about their feelings and probably misunderstanding each other quite a bit (although I would like if they figured things out eventually and got a happy ending), and I'd love anything dealing with Nightingale's very probable PTSD and depression and loneliness (and how having Peter with him helps at least somewhat).

I also like many other characters in the books and wouldn't mind at all if they appeared in the fic, especially all the Met/Folly characters. Seawoll is probably my third favourite character in the series, I love how he seems like a bit of a cliché at first, but is actually a smart, dutiful, good police officer who cares a lot about his subordinates; plus he's absolutely hilarious. I do however dislike Beverley and Peter/Beverley, and I'm generally not a huge fan of the Rivers, so I'd prefer if they didn't appear in the fic. I'm fine with Lesley appearing, but briefly rather than as the main focus of the fic. I firmly headcanon Nightingale as gay, so I'd rather not read about bi!Nightingale. I'm not super into the idea of Nightingale/Mellenby, should that come up.

I have read The Hanging Tree, so no worries about spoilers.

Thomas Nightingale/Peter Grant
  • any sort of first time/get together fic. I think it's obvious that they care about each other a lot, but they're both not the most emotionally available people and they're both very aware of the hierarchical differences between them, so I'd be extremely interested to see how they would ever move from their friendly, but professional relationship to a romantic one.
  • anything domestic. I want to see all the details about their life together. Their breakfast conversations. Their Latin lessons. Exasperated Nightingale trying to teach Peter something while Peter gets distracted. Peter showing Nightingale weird shit on the internet and Nightingale being all "you are not serious, this is not a thing people do". Nightingale telling Peter about stuff people used to do when Nightingale was young and Peter thinks Nightingale is pulling his leg. Playful banter over a beer at the pub. Comfortable silences while Nightingale watches rugby in the coach house and Peter sits next to him reading stuff on the internet. I have a thing for how easily they settle into each other's lives and routines, how they get used to each other's habits and how they become such a central part of each other's lives.
  • I have a soft spot for Nightingale saving Peter when Peter is in danger. I'd especially like to see the fall-out from this: Nightingale being shaken after almost losing the last person he has left in the world, maybe getting a little emotional (for his standards) but trying not to show it; Peter realising just how much Nightingale cares about him and so on. If you'd rather have Peter save Nightingale for once, I would love to read about that, too.
  • I'm very fascinated by Nightingale's past. Either flashbacks or Nightingale telling Peter about his past, about previous cases he worked, about his family or friends or colleagues, about his time at Casterbrook, about what the Folly used to be like before the war, about his life after the war etc.
  • semi-related: any fic taking into account that they grew up in very different eras and also come from a very different social class - things that seem normal to one of them might seem utterly impossible to the other, when it comes to education, knowledge, technology, but also social rules, relationships, sex ...
  • if you like to write plotty casefic, I'd love to see them work a case in the style of the books. If you combine this with any of the stuff above, all the better. Ghosts? Werewolves? Demons? Horrible murders? Someone is mindcontroling powerful people? A weird magical disease breaks out? Secret books or other dangerous items get stolen? Someone tried to break into the Folly? Something from Nightingales's past comes back to haunt him? The Faceless Man made his next move? I'd also be intrigued by any combination of supernatural and modern elements (the internet/TV equivalent of the Rivers, any supernatural being using the internet for supernatural crimes, industrialised magic, ghost hackers, cyberpunk demons, whatever you can come up with – anything that will require Nightingale's knowledge of the supernatural and Peter's knowledge of the modern world).
  • related, I love moral dilemmas, and these books are all about doing what's right and making morally sound choices. So, if you write casefic, what if there is no simple, right solution to whatever case they're working? What if Peter has to do something he doesn't want to do, or at least let Nightingale solve it the old-fashioned way? What if Nightingale and Peter disagree on how to deal with a too powerful enemy? What if Peter's approach of community policing over sabre rattling backfires in one case? Feel free to make this dark, I'm always here for angst and guilt and "I had no choice, but I'm still going to beat myself up about it forever because I should have found a better solution".
  • this is slightly cracky and I have no idea what you'd have to do to make this work (visions? dreams? weird time travel accident?), but I'd love for Peter to see the pre-war Folly somehow, and maybe see (meet?) pre-war Nightingale and his friends; do what you want with this. I'd even go for a total AU in which Peter was born in the early 20th century and becomes Nightingale's apprentice in the 20s/30s and everyone at the Folly is scandalised because Peter isn't white and the Folly was kind of a wealthy white guy club, and Nightingale doesn't really care because he's fond of Peter. (And by "I'd even go for that", I mean "I've been requesting this for years and would probably die from happiness if someone wrote it for me". ;))
  • inspired by The Hanging Tree: car sex! banging in the Ferrari! on the Ferrari! Nightingale and Peter racing in the Jag and the Ferrari and having adrenaline-fuelled wild sex afterwards!

Thomas Nightingale/Alexander Seawoll
  • why does Seawoll dislike Nightingale so much? what happened? bitter exes? angry hook-up after a case gone wrong? Nightingale got a friend of Seawoll's killed? or just magic got a friend of Seawoll's killed and he blames Nightingale for it? maybe young Seawoll wanted to become Nightingale's apprentice, but had no aptitude for magic? I know the fandom favours the idea that it was probably something petty and inconsequential, and I wouldn't be surprised if that turned out to be true in canon, but for fic I'd definitely prefer something a bit deeper.
  • the age difference, especially for background fic! old, jaded, depressed Nightingale and young, ambitious, brilliant Constable or Sergeant Seawoll, working their first case together - did they always dislike each other? did they get along well at first until something went wrong? Seawoll's antagonism seems to be based on something more serious than just not liking Nightingale as a person or thinking he's a posh snob, so I'm sure something really bad must have happened between them/to them/to Seawoll or someone he cared about because of "weird bollocks".
  • this is less of an endgame, they-lived-happily-ever-after ship for me, but I still would love to see a canon era fic. Again, antagonistic hookups? Or maybe something friendlier, since they seem to be getting along a bit better by THT? Maybe they sit down, have a drink, and talk about whatever it was that caused Seawoll to hate Nightingale's guts all those years ago, and things go from there?
  • for porn, Seawoll is such a big guy that any ship with him is just asking for size kink, wall sex, manhandling ... Also, hate sex! Seawoll wanting to mess up Nightingale's perfect suits and perfect hair. Nightingale using magic in bed and Seawoll being intrigued despite himself.

The Accountant

Christian Wolff/Braxton
  • first time fic, whether it's set in the past or post-movie. For this ship, probably with a ton of angst and pining - Chris who's already aware of how different he is and who's very aware that wanting to fuck his brother is hardly normal, and who's worried about taking advantage of Braxton's willingness to do anything for him. Brax who's equally worried about talking Chris into something he might not really want. I love how complicated and messed up any relationship would be between them, and how they'd both still find themselves unable to have an even remotely serious relationship with anyone else.
  • when did they start wanting each other? did anything sexual happen between them in the past? when they were teenagers, or when they were both in the Army? If yes, was that maybe one of the reasons why Chris didn't contact his brother for ten years - he thought Braxton would be better off without him, that he could lead a normal life without Chris around to make things weird? Of course Braxton would be furious about that, since he's been pretty miserable without Chris.
  • I love failures of communication between them, in both directions, but also ways in which they understand each other better than anyone else: Brax who knows all of Chris' hangups and habits and needs, Chris who finds Brax so much easier to read and get along with than most other people.
  • post-movie fic in which they meet up again as planned. Maybe they stay together for a while because they both had to burn their previous civilian identities. Maybe they work together for a bit. Maybe they don't work together and just meet up sometimes.
  • recurring kink for me, but voyeurism, especially Chris watching Brax with other men, both because he thinks he can't have Brax and because Chris doesn't have the most active sex life himself and likes to live vicariously through his brother. Can be either Brax talking Chris into being in the same room with them, or Chris watching Brax through binoculars from another building, whether it's with or without Brax's knowledge.
  • I liked Dana a lot and wouldn't mind her appearing in the fic, but I don't ship Chris/Dana.
  • anything about their respective relationships to their father and how that influences their relationship with each other: Braxton seems a lot more resentful and bitter about the way their father raised them, while Chris doesn't really seem like he's angry at their father for how he raised them (possibly because his father died saving his life, so Chris might feel like he still owes him). I could also see some conflict arising out of the fact that Chris still does the "exercises" their father had him do (the noise and bright lights), and Braxton would want him to stop because he's aware of how much their father fucked them both up.

Batman v Superman

The happy kink fandom of the year 2016! :D I'm madly in love with these versions of the characters - a broken, disillusioned, jaded Bruce, and an unsure, younger, conflicted Clark who's still figuring out what it means to be Superman, an Alfred who's completely done with Bruce's bullshit, but still infallibly loyal to him and helping him even when he thinks Bruce is wrong, a Diana who has withdrawn from the world because she's seen too many horrors. I love how Bruce and Diana find hope again at the end of the movie, and I love all the relationships between the different characters - Bruce and Diana, Clark and Martha, Bruce and Alfred, of course Bruce and Clark. I love the hints at Bruce's past - the burnt down manor, the dead Robin, the fact that he's so broken and despairing that he goes on a suicide mission. I just don't like Lois and Clark/Lois, so please none of that - though I don't really care if you have them break up off screen or write them as friends or have them not get back together after Clark returns from the dead, anything's fine.

I also requested the two ships below for the DCEU Exchange last year, so if you want even more prompts and ideas, here's my letter for that exchange.

Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent
  • anything focusing on Clark's return from the dead: how long was he gone? Did dying change him? (I'm quite fond of the idea I saw somewhere that Clark might well be somewhat hopeless and aimless after his death and Bruce is the one who has to remind him that the world needs Superman, but anything is good). How do he and Bruce meet again, how do they start working together? Are they friendlier now or do they argue all the time? How does the budding Justice League play into this?
  • identity porn! The movie really robbed us of that by having the two of them know so quickly who the other one is. Any combination is great: Batman and Superman working together with no idea who the other one is, Bruce Wayne seducing hapless reporter Clark Kent with no idea who the other one is, Bruce Wayne hitting on Superman, Batman saving Clark Kent's ass when Clark is walking through Gotham at night ... I think the movie makes it pretty easy to have Clark NOT know Batman's identity, while you'd probably have to go a bit more AU to have Bruce not know who Superman is (after the thing with Martha and the funeral). So I love Clark not knowing while Bruce knows, but I'm also okay with both of them not knowing.
  • related: Clark Kent meeting Matches Malone, Bruce's sleazy gangster alter ego, whether he knows it's Bruce or not. Give me furtive back-alley sex and manipulation and investigating things in Gotham's underbelly together.
  • also, pretend identity porn? They know who the other is, but Clark still lets Billionaire Playboy Bruce Wayne seduce Farmboy Reporter Clark Kent and bang him in expensive hotel rooms while they both pretend they're totally not Batman and Superman. Because Batman and Superman grudgingly work together and don't really like each other much. At all. Yeah.
  • they become partners after Clark is back, and they work together all right, but they're not friends. And when they start fucking, it's usually rough and angry and born out of yet another argument. Except eventually they do develop feelings for each other and both think it's one-sided, cue pining and emotional constipation and taking ages to realise how much they truly love each other. Or just generally anything about them slowly growing to know and like and love each other.
  • anything playing on their age difference, Bruce being paternal in his gruff way, Clark relying on him, praise kink, Bruce calling Clark "son" in bed ... If you want to go AU and give me virgin!Clark (or semi-virgin!Clark who always had to hold back so much in bed for fear of hurting his partner), I won't complain.
  • all the hurt/comfort. Clark patching Bruce up after a fight. Bruce having to take care of a kryptonite-weakened Clark.
  • generally, all the porn for these two. Go filthy, go kinky, this ship is made for it. Especially D/s and pain play. Bruce wanting Clark to chain him up and all but re-enact his nightmare. Bruce getting off on Clark's strength and Clark bruising him all over. Clark wanting to feel vulnerable again, to feel pain again, because he so got off on Bruce cutting his cheek during their fight - cue kryptonite bondage, Bruce making Clark bleed, ordering him around, making him hurt. Kryptonite branding because Clark is frustrated that the marks Bruce leaves on him never last. Rough marathon fucking because Clark's stamina is incredible and Bruce loves it when Clark makes him pass out. Clark being amazed by how much Bruce can take because he's always had to hold back when sleeping with someone. Choking and suit porn and leather glove porn and switching and ordering each other around and praise kink and marking and consent play and size kink and fisting ... there's so much awesome stuff you could do with these two, and I'd happily read it all. As long as it doesn't hit my DNWs, I'm game. Can be messed up and dubcon-ish, too, if you like, as long as they both end up enjoying themselves.
  • nightmares! Bruce's nightmares and Clark trying to help and Bruce not wanting any help (maybe Clark heard him toss and turn every night all the way over from Metropolis), and Clark having to figure out ways in which he can help Bruce that Bruce would accept. But also Clark having nightmares - of dying, of being caught in his coffin and not strong enough to get out of it, of the explosion at the Capitol and everyone around him dying ...
  • infidelity: I may be the only person in the fandom who wants this? But I'd love to read about Clark falling for Bruce while he's still with Lois (and maybe their relationship is a bit strained since he came back, but they do care for each other and are trying to make it work). Lots of pining and UST and guilt and shame and trying to resist each other, close calls and almost-kisses and actual kisses that last longer than they should, trying to stay away from each other and not being able to, adrenaline-fuelled sex they both regret afterwards. And Bruce refusing to talk about his feelings and whether or not he even wants a serious relationship with Clark, which makes it even harder for Clark to decide whether he should leave Lois for Bruce or keep trying to fix his relationship with her. (Obviously Lois would have to appear more in this scenario than I'd usually want, and that's fine, although I'd prefer if most actual Clark/Lois stuff happened off page. But I'm not looking for Lois to be vilified; if anything, Clark would clearly be the one in the wrong in this scenario.)
  • lone crossover prompt! I didn't request it explicitly, but I would so be here for Bruce/Steve Rogers (I'm mostly familiar with the MCU, but I'm okay with comics influences) in which Bruce secretly pines after Clark and Steve secretly pines after Tony. So Steve sleeps with sleazy billionaire Bruce Wayne because he reminds him a bit of Tony, and Bruce sleeps with Captain America because the super strength and Righteous Goodness remind him of Clark. And Tony is outraged that Steve would waste his time with a vapid idiot like Bruce Wayne, and Clark is disappointed that Bruce would sleep with a guy he barely knows rather than turn to his partner and friend Clark. Would prefer this with some additional identity porn where Steve and Tony don't know that Bruce Wayne is Batman (but I'm perfectly fine with everyone knowing who Tony and Steve are, like in the MCU). If you want to be extra generous, I'd love for Steve/Tony and Bruce/Clark to get together in the end, but if you just want to write the Steve/Bruce bit with jealous Clark and Tony and Steve and Bruce pining, that'd be more than enough to make me happy. :D

Alfred Pennyworth/Diana Prince
  • friendship-to-love, slow burn romance with lots of wooing and going out together and making each other laugh
  • Alfred not even thinking of their get-togethers as dates at first because he doesn't think she'd ever really be interested in him that way, she's Wonder Woman, he's not going to hit on her
  • lots of UST and constrained pining and the two of them actually enjoying the slow burn: downright chaste hand-touching, dancing with each other, Alfred's hand on the small of her back, Diana asking Alfred to help her fasten her necklace before they go out, Diana straightening his tie, slow graduating to neck kisses, hair-touching ... Basically, make me (and them) wait for it. ;D As for actual porn, I am so fond of the idea of Diana being really into anal (on the receiving end). Idk, it's hot.
  • competence kink: because she's Wonder Woman, and he's a very educated guy who knows about as much as Bruce does when it comes to things like engineering and spying and whatnot (and I do like the Gotham background of Alfred as an ex-Special Forces soldier, too, especially since I like Alfred and Diana both having experience with wars).
  • anything that navigates the fact that Bruce is and always will be the most important person in Alfred's life and that Alfred just doesn't have a lot of free time; Bruce's reaction to finding out that Diana/Alfred is a thing would be priceless.
  • their age difference: Alfred definitely isn't used to being around anyone who'd consider him young, and at the same time he still has way more life experience than most other mortals Diana knows, so talking to him must still be refreshing.
  • cars! Diana loves fast cars, so maybe Alfred borrows one of Bruce's cars to pick her up (and lets her drive, of course). Car sex? I generally love Diana talking Alfred into things he's "too old for" because, hey, she's way older than him, he can't use that as an excuse with her.

Fast and the Furious series

Deckard Shaw/Owen Shaw
  • Deckard is 8 years older than Owen, so Owen was still a kid when Deckard joined the military: how did that go? Was there any resentment on Owen's side? Did he just have a big case of hero worship, since he followed his brother's example as soon as he could?
  • at what point did they go from big brother/little brother to equals?
  • how did they both manage to get kicked out of the SAS? Did they fuck up? Did one of them fuck up and the other followed him into exile, so to speak? Did they get blamed for someone else's mistake? Did they get greedy and start making money on the side? Or anything about that time the military sent a ton of Special Forces guys to kill Deckard and they failed?
  • post-canon fic: either Deckard breaking out of prison and being there while Owen recovers, or Owen waking up from his coma and getting back to his feet and breaking his brother out of prison (I'd prefer if Owen didn't have any permanent health issues from his coma; it's an action movie, people can survive horrific injuries with not much more than a few scars, right?). How does almost dying/getting locked up change their relationship? Roaring rampage of revenge y/y? (While I like the protagonists of the F&F movies, I'm not so emotionally attached to them that I wouldn't happily read about the Shaw brothers getting their revenge against them.)
  • any kind of first time fic would be great. When did the incestuous obsession with each other start? When they were still pretty young? Did teenage Owen somehow manipulate his big brother into giving him what he wants? I'm fine with underage as long as Owen is at least 15ish by the time they actually sleep with each other, and I'm cool with Owen fantasising about his brother/being all around inappropriate towards him even when he's younger. Or did it only start when they were in the military together and Deckard saw Owen more as an equal than as his little brother? Did it only start after they got kicked out of the military?
  • for this pairing I love obsessive pining, voyeurism before they get together (i.e. watching each other screw other people), possessiveness/jealousy ("I will kill you if you ever let anyone else fuck you" and the like), rough sex, completely obsessive incestuous codependency, being horrible people to everyone but each other, delighting in each other's horribleness, delighting in each other's badassery, sweaty rough sparring, gun/knife play, kinking on being brothers - basically go kinky if you like.

The Hateful Eight

Chris Mannix/Marquis Warren
  • post-canon fic in which they somehow survive - I think most of my prompts go in that direction (please let's pretend Warren only got shot in the upper thigh and everything is still intact? or, idk, he got one ball shot off, but the rest is still there)
  • maybe Mannix was less injured and manages to patch Warren up, and they weather the storm together until someone finds them? Warren dealing with the fact that Chris Mannix of all people saved his life, twice.
  • Sheriff Mannix and bounty hunter Warren having a drink every time Warren brings in a bounty and slowly developing the oddest friendship
  • the two of them working together as bounty hunters (with lots of competence kink and being turned on by the other one being so damn good at killing people, while also being disgusted when remembering where the other one learnt to kill so well)
  • antagonistic friendship where they get along great at times and want to strangle each other at others
  • protectiveness, loyalty kink, especially if they're surprised by how much they've grown to care about each other
  • anything about Warren's or Mannix's past: where Warren grew up, how he escaped (I'm assuming that's what's happened), his time in the Union army and afterwards; Mannix's family, his childhood as the runt of the litter, how obsessed he is with his father (daddy issues!), his war experiences, the Mannix Marauders ... Feel free to have them meet old friends or old enemies in your fic.
  • them being amoral bad guys who are both awful in their own way - they're not nice or good people and I like that
  • hate sex; or huddling for warmth leading to sex; or post-battle sex in the blood of their enemies/bounties ...
  • for porn: I usually don't have fixed top/bottom preferences, but in this particular case, I doubt Warren would be okay with not being completely in charge of anything that happens between them. And Mannix seems to be pretty okay with letting Warren call the shots.
  • kinks: uniform kink, scars, D/s, Warren ordering Mannix around and getting off on the way Mannix calls him "sir", humiliation kink, daddy issues (Warren teasing Mannix in bed with how disappointed his father would be in him if he could see him right now), size kink, restraints, a bit of spanking/flogging, discipline/punishment, gun play, knife play, boot kink, rape roleplay (Mannix can't admit what he wants, but he's fine with letting Warren take it as long as Mannix can pretend he doesn't want it), dirty talk, praise kink (because Mannix can be such a good boy) ...
  • dubcon with Warren manipulating Mannix into doing things he's not 100% okay with, although I'd prefer if Mannix ended up enjoying it, even if he feels very ashamed about it
  • shame, internalised homophobia, guilt: I doubt Mannix is happy with being attracted to men, I don't know if Warren is; either way they're both probably very unhappy with being attracted to this particular man
  • forgot to nominate it (again), so feel free to disregard this, but I'd totally read a Hateful Eight/Magnificent Seven crossover, if you know both canons and feel like writing it; Mannix would probably freak out at least as much about meeting Robicheaux as he did when he met General Smithers, Robicheaux would play Mannix like a fiddle, Warren would roll his eyes and probably also try and fail to get Robicheaux to pull on him, Billy would be amused by Mannix and probably keep a close eye on Warren in case he tries anything. Or maybe Warren and Chisolm know each other and Warren can't believe that Chisolm is friends with Goodnight Robicheaux of all people.

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Goodnight Robicheaux/Billy Rocks

  • canon told us how they met, but how did they become partners/friends/lovers? I figure Billy was rather suspicious of this guy who tried to befriend him after watching him kill a bunch of men in a bar fight. Did they like each other immediately or was it more of a business partnership at first? When did they realise just how much they care about each other?
  • how they got to know each other: the first time Goody mentions the voices he hears to Billy, the first time Billy realises Goody has trouble killing people, the first time Goody talks about the war, the first time Billy has to go find Goody again because Goody rode off in the middle of the night, but also the first time Billy mentions any of his past experiences (I read in an interview that Billy was an indentured servant until he killed his master and ran away? so maybe something about that), I bet he has his share of issues and nightmares as well, and it'd be nice to see them help each other.
  • generally I'd love to know more about their past, before and after they met; tell me about Goody's upbringing and war experiences and why he went West after the war, tell me about his family, if he maybe had a wife and children who died during the war, tell me about what Billy was up to in the years between running away and meeting Goody, how he became such a good fighter in the first place, how he survived and made money before he had Goody to 'navigate the white man's prejudice' for him. I'm also always here for them running into old friends or enemies - and I can imagine that some of Goody's old friends wouldn't approve of the company he's keeping now
  • related to this, considering that Goody comes across as a fairly educated guy, he probably comes from money, meaning he probably used to own slaves before the war. And Goody strikes me as the kind of guy who probably considered that not so bad because he thought he was nice to them (yeah, yeah, I know, historical canons are a pain sometimes, but I find the moral value dissonance fascinating). So how would Billy feel about that, considering that he used to be a slave in all but name? Does it bother him? Does he not care because he only cares about how Goody treats him in the here and now? And what about Sam, should you include Sam in your fic? He and Goody are thick as thieves in the movie, so is that just a thing they don't talk about, ever? Or does it fall under "the past is the past, the war is over, let's not dwell on it" for Sam?
  • things they taught each other; gifts they got each other - maybe Billy could barely read when he met Goody, maybe Billy taught Goody a lot about living in the West if they met shortly after Goody left the South; maybe Goody got Billy all those beautiful knives of his, maybe Billy sometimes tries to get Goody useless, beautiful little things that remind him of home and happier times.
  • did they pull any other schemes than the back alley fights + betting we see in canon? Goody clearly worked as a bounty hunter for a bit, so maybe they did that for a while?
  • post-movie fix-it fic in which they survive and recuperate and maybe return to the road; or what are they up to while they're still injured? if Billy was worse off than Goody, how do they make money while Billy can't fight again just yet?
  • first time/getting together: who made the first move, especially when they both might well have been worried about ruining their partnership that way? I'd love to see either long pining and UST before they get together, or them hooking up fairly early on when they didn't care enough about the other one yet to worry about ruining their partnership. Also, did they have previous experiences with men before or was that all carefully repressed?
  • I love the trust and loyalty between them, how unspoken and self-evident it is for them to stick together - how did they get to that point?
  • for porn: dirty talk, knife play, gun play, D/s (don't care who's in charge, both work for me), switching, hair-grabbing, beard kink, shaving porn, rough post-battle sex, kneeling and hand-kissing and other expressions of loyalty (again, in both directions), and obviously everything else on the kink list above
  • forgot to nominate it (again), so feel free to disregard this, but I'd totally read a Hateful Eight/Magnificent Seven crossover, if you know both canons and feel like writing it; Mannix would probably freak out at least as much about meeting Robicheaux as he did when he met General Smithers, Robicheaux would play Mannix like a fiddle, Warren would roll his eyes and probably also try and fail to get Robicheaux to pull on him, Billy would be amused by Mannix and probably keep a close eye on Warren in case he tries anything. Or maybe Warren and Chisolm know each other and Warren can't believe that Chisolm is friends with Goodnight Robicheaux of all people.

내부자들 | Inside Men (2015)

Ahn Sang-goo/Woo Jang-hoon

I have been obsessed with this movie since I saw it, all the intrigue and scheming and revenge plotting, and of course I have a massive soft spot for characters with very different morals and ideals about how the world is or should be working together. I love how Jang-hoon, the "good guy" of the two, the righteous, principled one who believes in justice, is also a rude dick who seems to antagonise people just because it's fun and people suck, while Sang-goo, the violent, fairly ruthless gangsters, is much more amiable (unless you cross him, of course). I love how their relationship starts completely antagonistic and turns so much friendlier in absolutely no time, how quickly Sang-goo decides to trust him, basically putting his life in his hands (and so shortly after finding out another person he trusted fucked him over and betrayed him), I love how their initial insulting each other quickly turns into much friendlier banter, how they keep teasing each other. And, you know, how the movie basically ends with them deciding to go on a date because that's totally something you do with people on the other side of the law whom you don't even know all that well. ;D

Sang-goo's hand is exempt to my "no permanent injuries" DNW, by the way, I don't want you to retcon or fix that. But I'd still prefer that nobody lose any further limbs, except maybe their antagonists in prison. ;)

  • I could read a hundred different post-canon getting together fics about them: how do things continue between them after that last scene? Do they jump each other's bones that very night because they've been flirting almost since they met? Do they proceed to have months or years of slow-burning UST and pining while they become friends and meet up for dinner all the time and tease each other and banter and neither of them wants to ruin that by making the first move? Does it take some kind of outside element like one of them getting hurt for them to get over each other? Does one of them maybe make the first move, but gets rejected (because the other one is repressed or whatever reason), and they only get together much later?
  • if you want to write something plotty: the post-credit scene heavily applies that Lee&co aren't done yet, so what if they are let out of prison a few years later and want to get back at them?
  • all the banter and insulting each other, including in bed. Also, how that banter gets friendlier over time, how Jang-hoon's insults slowly turn into endearments (he already says "gangster" in the fondest voice at the end of the movie).
  • maybe some conflicts arising out of the whole "lawyer and gangster" thing? Maybe Jang-hoon can live with a certain amount of illegal stuff he knows Sang-goo is up to, but there are lines he won't let him cross (at least not to his knowledge)? Maybe Jang-hoon gets somehow dragged into one of those deals, like someone thinking it'd be a great idea to abduct Sang-goo's BFF/lover to blackmail him? Of course Sang-goo would burn everything down to get him back and Jang-hoon would be fucking furious that was even necessary.
  • I love repression and denial in fics, especially for characters like these two. I could see it for either one or both of them: I can see Sang-goo as fairly relaxed about his sexuality because he's a gangster who does what he wants anyway, but I could also see him having a lot of masculinity hangups and being in complete denial about wanting men. I can see Jang-hoon not giving a fuck because he strongly believes all people should be equal (though he'd still be incredibly closeted, of course), but I can also see him being completely repressed because he knows how much anything like that would hurt his career and his dream of a successful, normal life. I could see a total top clash where they're both willing to sleep with a man, but neither is willing to bottom because they'd consider that way "more gay". Additionally, I could see Sang-goo having some issues about anyone staring too much/touching his right arm, and Jang-hoon just not giving a shit because he still wants him more than anyone else.
  • I really enjoyed those scenes with Jang-hoon's father, how much those two bitch at each other while still clearly caring a lot, and also how incredibly polite and respectful Sang-goo is to him (because he does have manners, unlike some people ;)). So if you felt like including him, and what he thinks about his prickly asshole of a son befriending the gangster he stashed at his place that one time, that could be great.
  • I'm mostly into post-canon fic for these two, but I also wouldn't mind some kind of canon divergence where some part of their revenge/justice plan goes wrong and they have to improvise, although I would prefer a happy ending.
  • if you want to write smut: suit porn, rough sex, manhandling, roughness, lots of banter in bed, competitive sex, arguing about who gets to top or maybe convoluted deals ("if you blow me, you get to fuck me") even once they're both enjoying pretty much all of it, lots of body worship (Sang-goo's tattoo and insanely perfect muscles, and maybe also petting the stump of his arm), sauna sex, spanking (maybe Sang-goo gets tired of Jang-hoon being a rude little shit), and really any of the kinks I listed above.
  • I could definitely see some fluffier things for them, too, especially once they are together: nice dinners, Sang-goo getting Jang-hoon gifts and Jang-hoon complaining about it, visiting his dad again and hanging out by that lake, actually running off to the Maldives to spend a week doing nothing but sprawling around drinking Mojitos ... I'd prefer not to get 5k of domestic fluff only, but I'd be very okay with including some fluffy elements in whatever fic you're writing.


And that's it! Another exchange, another absurdly long letter. ;D I hope that you can find something in this letter that appeals to you, dear writer, a prompt you find interesting or a trope that appeals to you. I love all of these fandoms so much and I'm looking forward to reading whatever you're going to write for me. :D
