Dear All In The Family writer,

Thank you for writing for me and having a look at my letter. My letters always get fairly 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

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 have only requested fic for all my fandoms because I'm not very good at coming up with art prompts and I'd feel bad for any artist who got matched to me and then had nothing to go on. But if any of my requests give you an idea for art, I would absolutely love to see that, too! :) I am however not particularly into vids.

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 / pairings for this exchange and I would like to get actual shipfic)
  • 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.


Fast and the Furious series
Deckard Shaw/Owen Shaw

I've requested this ship in exchanges before and received absolutely wonderful fics, but I always want more. :D I love that they're both ruthless bastards, I love all the loyalty kink and possessiveness between them, the whole us-against-the-world dynamics. I love that they'd both burn down the world for each other. And there are so many different directions you could take this ship in, from a fairly harmonious, close relationship to something very antagonistic and distant (up until someone opposes them and they're inseparable again), or anything in between. I'd love to read more takes on this ship, as long as it is clear that they do love each other deep down. I wouldn't want the fic to end with them actually betraying each other or something like that. Here are some prompts, but feel free to go in a different direction if you have an idea you want to explore for them.
  • 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.

Batman v Superman
Alfred Pennyworth/Bruce Wayne

I have so much love for these versions of the characters - a broken, disillusioned, jaded Bruce, 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, 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. Feel free to include any of the other characters, or Bruce/Clark, or Bruce/random characters he's banging as long as they aren't his comic canon love interests. I don't see Bruce as particularly monogamous, so I doubt Alfred would ever be the only person he sleeps with. I just don't like Lois and Clark/Lois, so please none of that on the side.
  • anything set during or shortly before BvS: I love the tension between Bruce and Alfred, how fiercely Alfred disagrees with him and tries to talk him out of his plans, but how he'll still support Bruce in any way he can
  • but also more background story: how did we get to the jaded, broken Bruce we see in canon, and how did his relationship with Alfred change over the years? I'd love to read something set around the time of Jason's death, for example, or if you want to include/mention Dick, maybe something related to Bruce's estrangement from him. Maybe there were previous instances of Bruce crossing lines Alfred thought he'd never cross. I'd love to see Alfred's point of view on all of this,  but also Bruce fearing that there might be a point at which Alfred stops helping him (except Alfred will stick with him no matter what).
  • post-canon fic is always amazing, too: Bruce grieving for Clark and beating himself up with guilt, Alfred helping Bruce track down the rest of the League, maybe some attempts at reconciling the differences they had before
  • I tend to see this version of Alfred/Bruce as something that maybe happened more often in the past, when Bruce was younger, when there was less tension and conflict between them. I'm always interested in pre-canon getting together fics, but I'd also love to see some kind of first-time-after-years-of-not-sleeping-with-each-other post-canon. Or angry, guilty, rougher sex set during BvS when they just don't know how to deal with their problems and disagreements except by grabbing each other? Maybe something more tender when Alfred is patching Bruce up, or picking up the pieces after BvS.
  • that being said, I have no objections to a first time ever during or post-canon, after years of UST boiling over, if that's more something you'd enjoy writing
  • porn! I tend to be a bit more into Alfred topping Bruce, but power games and fucked up power dynamics are what this ship is made for (Bruce expecting Alfred to give him what he wants, Alfred barely even considering the possibility of saying no to Bruce). I love D/s, Bruce kneeling for Alfred, spanking or some other kind of physical punishment as a form of atonement for his failures and his mistakes, Bruce soaking up his punishment even though he has no intention of mending his ways. I also love sex as a way to express how much they care about each other when they argue most of the time whenever they talk. I love suit porn and body worship and scars and Alfred patching Bruce up, Bruce's masochism and Alfred indulging it while being somewhat uncomfortable still with how much he enjoys it, too. They don't literally think of each other as father and son, but they are family and Alfred did raise Bruce, so I also enjoy a nice amount of guilt and shame over that, especially on Alfred's side, and feeling like he somehow fucked Bruce up by sleeping with him (especially if they started doing that when Bruce was fairly young). Voyeurism is also great - Alfred watching Bruce fuck other people/get fucked by other people, whether it's random models Bruce Wayne hooks up with or someone he knows (Clark, Dick for extra incest angst, Arthur, Barry ...). Sloppy seconds are hot, too.
  • I love their age difference, Bruce being Alfred's employer while also having been raised by him. I love that they know each other better than anyone else in the world and have been through so much together. I always love it when fics really make me feel the intimacy between two characters, how close they are and how well they know each other. Oh, and their banter is great. :D

Gotham (TV)
Alfred Pennyworth/Bruce Wayne

Yes, I'm requesting the same ship twice for two different canons, sue me. ;) Obviously their dynamics are very different between BvS and Gotham and the characters are at very different places in their lives. I love how obviously they care about each other on Gotham, how incredibly close they are and how lost they would be without the other. I also find it interesting how the power dynamics play out between them, on the one hand Alfred being Bruce's legal guardian and occasionally putting his foot down (about Bruce going to school in season one, for example), and on the other hand Bruce being technically Alfred's boss and ordering him around and (mostly) getting to do what he wants. I also love how ruthlessly protective Alfred is of Bruce, and how Bruce is just as worried about anything happening to Alfred.

I'm okay with Bruce still being under 18 for anything shippy, as long as he's at least 15/16ish for anything explicit to happen between them, though I'm perfectly fine with Bruce fantasising about or lusting after Alfred when he's younger than that.
  • getting together fic would be amazing. Something like Bruce realising over the years that he doesn't just love Alfred like family? Lots of pining because he thinks that Alfred could never feel the same way about him? Lots of angst and guilt on Alfred's side about falling for his ward? Angsty, slow-burn getting together fic, maybe only at some point in the future after Bruce already became Batman? Or before, that's cool, too. Or after one of them got hurt and they had another "I can't lose you" moment? Bruce being reasonable and mature and explaining to Alfred very seriously why there's no reason they shouldn't be together?
  • anything with Alfred protecting/saving Bruce, anything with either of them getting hurt and the other taking care of them
  • anything more about Alfred's past coming back to haunt him or how being around Bruce helps him deal with his past
  • I'd also love to see how the Bruce we see on the show goes on to become Batman, so if you want to fastforward a few years and explore how that happens, I would absolutely LOVE to read it. Where does he get the idea? How does he go about it? Does he leave Gotham for a few years to train and then come back eventually? Does Alfred help him train and is generally a total enabler? (Okay, we know the answer to that last question is yes because Alfred likes enabling Bruce.)
  • their hugs on the show are utterly adorable, so if you have them hugging in your fic, I will appreciate that very much. All the hugs and clinging to each other and Alfred stroking Bruce's hair.
  • this is kind of stupid, but I'd love weird time travel shenanigans making the Bruce and Alfred from Gotham meet the Bruce and Alfred from BvS - mostly because I'd love to have Gotham!Alfred see what Bruce becomes, and BvS!Bruce and Alfred look back at what Bruce used to be like.
I like most other characters on this show, so if you want to include Gordon or whoever as well, that's cool. I'm just not a huge fan of  Penguin, but I don't think that should be a problem. And I like Bruce and Selina as friends, but I don't ship them at all.

The Raven Cycle

I've requested several ships for this fandom, so ship-specific prompts are below. In general, I ship Gansey/Ronan, Declan/Adam, and 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 when it's not incestuous. 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.

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.

Niall Lynch/Ronan Lynch
  • anything about their dreams - how much did Niall tell or teach Ronan about his abilities? Not all that much it seems, from canon, but maybe a little. Shared dreams would be awesome. Dream sex would also be awesome.
  • something about Ronan seeing Niall again in his dreams after Niall's death? ghost!Niall?
  • what's up with the devil Ronan saw Niall shoot? I'd generally be interested in anything that explores how religious Ronan is (and I'm assuming Niall was just as religious) and how this affects and is affected by his dream abilities.
  • anything in general about how Niall raised his sons (I'm cool with Niall/Declan and Niall/Declan/Ronan as well, if you can make it work, as long as it's all consensual, I'm not really into interpretations of Niall as abusive)
  • praise kink, daddy kink, codependent father/son stuff, complicated UST ...

Niall Lynch/Ronan Lynch/Richard Gansey III
  • anything about the three of them interacting: Ronan bringing Gansey to the Barns, Gansey being fascinated by Niall, Niall all but adopting Gansey on the spot, Niall approving of Ronan and Gansey's friendship ...
  • Niall realising that Ronan wants Gansey long before Ronan does, and seducing Gansey for Ronan
  • or maybe Ronan/Niall is a thing and Niall suggests inviting Gansey along
  • generally anything about how Ronan/Gansey and Ronan/Niall could interact, and about Niall being a seductive force of nature and Gansey being so intrigued by and drawn to him.
  • messed up wet dreams or messed up magic dreams
  • if you want to throw Declan into the mix as well (Ronan/Declan or Niall/Declan/Ronan as a background ship, or Niall/Ronan/Gansey/Declan as a foursome), that'd be very welcome.

And that's it!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'm looking forward to reading whatever you're going to write for me. :D
