Hi, dear author/artist! I'm sorry this is slightly late going up. Thank you for whatever you're going to write or create, I'm sure I'll love it!

Writing likes: I love stories where things happen, where characters come out of the story changed in some way, even if it's a subtle change. I especially love the interactions between characters, dialogue, snark, personality clashes, confessions, romance. I love stories that don't provide oversimplified resolutions to complex situations, where things aren't necessarily all neatly wrapped up at the end - it's okay if everything's not happily ever after, as long as there's some hope for the future. I like fic that challenges traditional gender roles and expectations. I love humour, as highbrow or lowbrow as you like, depending on what suits the story. Please feel free to include other characters from any of these canons in supporting roles, or to make up original characters, whatever works for your story.

Art likes: I have a harder time describing what I like in art, but I like realistic as well as more symbolic art, and colourful art as well as black and white. I like interesting poses, angles, and views of things. I like depictions of affection and little intimate gestures like hand touches or foreheads pressed together. I like being able to read the emotions on a character's face, to see the pain or the pleasure they're experiencing.

Porn likes: M/M, F/F, F/M, threesomes and moresomes of all combinations, polyamory, rough sex (biting, scratching, bruising, hairpulling, slapping, spanking, etc.), inversion/subversion of traditional gender roles (e.g. femdom, crossdressing, men not being afraid to show emotions) or of 'expected' relationship roles (e.g. smaller/weaker partner topping/domming, subs topping from the bottom, a partner who seems shy becoming more assertive in the bedroom, etc.), D/s dynamics, service submission, power imbalance, BDSM, piercings, scars, bloodplay, painplay, breathplay, dubcon, drunk or drugged sex, awkward sex, sex where things don't go perfectly, established relationships, developing relationships, first times, trying new things, pregnant sex, watersports, fisting, non-penetrative sex (penetrative sex is also great, but variety is nice!), frottage, pegging, size kink, orgasm control/denial, masturbation, dirty talk (and communication in general during sex), friends-with-benefits, semi-public sex (as in, places where one could get caught/overheard), having one's previously-assumed sexual orientation challenged by unexpected feelings for someone of the 'wrong' sex

DNWs: Underage, outright noncon unless otherwise specified below (dubcon is fine), character death.

As you can probably guess, I'm fine with playing up the vampire aspects of this canon - biting, bloodplay, people who are stronger than they look (or possibly stronger than they're aware). I love the idea of characters being less experienced than they seem - it might be assumed that vampires have a lot of sex, but do they really? Has Alucard ever had a partner before? Or did Dracula have much experience before Lisa came to his door? Hector and Isaac as the only humans amid a bunch of vampires also intrigue me - their relationships with each other as well as with the vampires around them. I like Trevor's and Sypha's sassiness, the banter between them and Alucard is great. I like that Trevor seems like a washed up drunk at first, but is surprisingly competent. For the Carmilla/Hector prompt only, I would also be fine with noncon.

Star Wars: Rebels: Alexsandr Kallus/Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (Rebels)
Medium: Fanart or Fanfiction
Alien Cultural Differences, Alien Gender/Sexuality, Anal Sex, Courtship/Wooing, Experienced/Inexperienced, Enemies to Friends to Lovers, Wedding Night, Married Sex, Size Difference, Porn with Feelings, Competence Kink, Strength Kink, Thank God We're Alive Sex, Kink Exploration, First Time

I'd like to see something that explores the differences between these two, how they get together or what their life is like once they're together (I used 'married sex' for that concept but feel free to interpret that as whatever kind of alien/human committed relationship you think they might have). Alien concepts of sex and gender, differences around expectations about sex - maybe there are things that Kallus realizes he really enjoys that he wouldn't have expected to? Has Zeb ever had a relationship before? How do they work things out?

Agrippa with one of the Octavii siblings please! If you feel inspired to combine this into a threesome, or a situation where Agrippa is banging both of them but neither knows about it (or maybe they do?), that's cool too. Orgies or other situations where there is anonymous sex would be interesting as well. I threw in 'incest kink' there if you want to explore the idea of either Octavian or Octavia confessing their incest to Agrippa, and him finding that thought unexpectedly hot. Power dynamics, especially once Octavian is Emperor, are interesting to me - if you go that route, I like the idea of the outwardly-powerful individual being made to submit. Secret pining and unexpected feelings could be from Agrippa's side (he seems the pining type) or you could surprise me. Reading erotic literature I just threw in because I thought it would be entertaining :)

Medium: Fanart or Fanfiction
Femdom, Sensation Play, Post-Coital Cuddling, Cuddling, Experienced/Inexperienced, Casual Sex, Casual sex leading to feelings, Biting, Size Difference, Orgasm Control, Aftercare, Aftercare cuddles

For the relationships here that involve queens, I definitely like them being the ones in control - up to and including the idea of them being able to control their partners' orgasms. Sensation play and biting because of the involvement of things like scales, claws, and teeth, as well as their love of nipping one another affectionately. I like Raksura's casual attitude towards sex, but I also like the strong feelings they can have for each other. And as you can see I went big into the cuddling themes here, because I love Raksura cuddle piles and physical contact/affection for one another. I'd be curious to see Consolation learning more about Raksura society, trying to emulate it as best as she can. Shade deserves a chance to be happy, too. And Stone is the best grumpy old man with an unexpected but not unwelcome relationship developing with Rorra.

This is my first set of OW relationships, which I secretly called the "nice list". These are ones where I see the relationship as probably more cute/sweet/affectionate. Servants and loyal retainers feature prominently here, so if you want to explore the power dynamics of those kinds of relationships, please feel free. As well, some of these could certainly be friendly or professional relationships of long standing that then move into becoming something else. If gender isn't specified here, feel free to make the people whatever gender(s) you like, I'm fine with anything.

This is the 'naughty list' of original works prompts. For any of these, I am fine with noncon if you want to go that route. As above, if gender isn't specified here, feel free to make the people whatever gender(s) you like. A lot of these revolve around power dynamics - captives, slaves and their owners, nobles and their lower class partners, etc - and forbidden (or at least socially frowned upon) relationships. Feel free to explore those themes however you like.

Some fics for the current game I'm playing in, Ye Olde Adventure World, and my character Laris, the bi poly grey-A shadar-kai fantasy Roman general. I put these in chronological order of when they would have happened in-universe, starting with one from when he was a teenager and moving forward.

Summary:

Rufus Metilius Auspex had been stationed with the Third Legion for six months, and in that time he'd seen things he would never have experienced if he'd stayed in the Eternal City. But it also meant he'd had to deal with the most insufferable, stuck up ass of a tribune he'd ever encountered - Laris Valerius Corvis.

Summary:

The path rose and fell with the hills, and at the top of one particularly steep section they paused to catch their breath. Laris was accustomed to the walk, but Sahhiru was less so, and he needed a moment to recover. "Did you pick the site for your villa in order to keep casual visitors away?" he asked with a slight smile.

"Its isolation is part of its charm," Laris replied. "And it does have the benefit of dissuading people from dropping by unexpectedly."

Sahhiru nodded. "I can certainly see the appeal." His bronze eyes lingered on Laris a moment longer, before he turned to take in the rest of the view.

Summary:

It was hard for Laris to imagine what coming home might feel like, but being back in Rufus' arms was close. A decade apart had not diminished the strength of their feelings for one another. Laris had not wanted to presume that they could simply pick up where they had left off. Things were so much more complicated now, but when Rufus leaned in to kiss him, it felt comfortable to fall back into the familiar sensations and return his embrace. It was a kiss that had ten years of anticipation behind it, and they made it worth the wait.

Summary:

Laris sat on the edge of Dianthea's bed, trying not to look like he was watching as she undressed. It felt unseemly, even though she had invited him here, to gaze too long in her direction as she removed her shawl and laid it carefully aside, then began to take off her robe. He caught her eye as she glanced over at him, and turned aside, embarrassed.

"You can look at me, you know," she told him with a smile as she slid the robe off, leaving her in her undergarments. Her skin was pale, even whiter than the linen that wrapped her body. "It might not be completely proper, since we're not married yet, but that's not really a concern at this point, is it?"

Summary:

"Officially, this is your job," Dianthea said, gesturing to the knotted belt at her waist. Laris, having some familiarity with knots, had little trouble unfastening it. Earlier, the untying had been ceremonial, the cord used to bind their hands together symbolically. Now it was practical, so that Dianthea could remove her silk gown, sliding it off once she'd unhooked the brooch that pinned it at her shoulder.

There’s a persistent faction of people who really want to let the world know that AO3 is unsustainable, broken, will probably die any day now. Our code base, our hardware, our finances, our tag wrangling system, our policies, our legal standpoint, our organization… everything. People have been telling us this since before AO3 even existed - that it’s impossible, it won’t work, you can’t do that. The thing you made isn’t perfect, so it’s pointless to try and improve it. You’re going to fail.

And, as someone who has been working within AO3 in various capacities for nine years now, I am fully aware that there are things we could do better. Things we could improve or that might have to change someday in the future. But the solution to that is to keep working, not to give up. I give my time to AO3 because I think it’s worthwhile to keep it running, and to help fix problems from within when I can. Keep making improvements a little (or sometimes a lot) at a time. Understand that the perfect is the enemy of the good. Prioritize what is most important to deal with, and work down the list. Re-evaluate if the situation changes. Be flexible, but still stick to your principles.

Because you have to ask yourself (and I do, often) what is most likely to kill AO3, and it’s not having bugs in the code or failing to raise as much money one year as we hoped or having a server die on us - it’s not having people willing to do the work of fixing those bugs, or of improving our fundraising methods, or of replacing the hardware if it fails. We run on volunteers, and things that discourage those volunteers - causing them to decide it isn’t worth their time and effort - is what I think would most likely be truly fatal to the organization.

And it’s an inevitable truth that there are people who would rather be negative than positive. Who would look at an achievement like AO3 and say “well it’ll probably fail someday,” rather than saying “maybe I could help.” Helping involves effort, and nay-saying from the sidelines is easy. But there’s also a nasty undercurrent of wanting to discourage other people from giving their time/effort/money to the site - of actively wanting to see it fail.

So let’s play this game and imagine that AO3 falls apart someday. Nothing lasts forever, and whether that day comes in 5 years or 50, it’s possible it could happen. Will it feel better then to say “I was right, they failed”? Or will it feel better to say “This was an enormous undertaking, and many people poured their hearts and souls into it despite overwhelming obstacles, and for 15 years (or 25 years, or 75 years) they succeeded.” Even if the site goes down tomorrow (which it won’t!), we succeeded for 11 years. That’s not a failure in my books. The fact that something dies doesn’t mean it never lived, or that its living was meaningless.

So we can point to our successes, and we can correct misinformation when we see it in the wild if we feel like spending our time on that, but people who are determined to see the site fail will keep existing, and we can’t change their minds. The best revenge is to keep existing, because every day we do that, it means we prove them wrong. It means we fought for one more day of succeeding.

Notes: 1. I don’t speak for the OTW or AO3, and these are purely my own opinions.

2. This applies to many difficult things in life, not just AO3. If I might quote Arthur Hugh Clough for a moment:

Say not the struggle nought availeth,
The labour and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
It may be, in yon smoke concealed,
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers,
And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back through creeks and inlets making,
Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light,
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly,
But westward, look, the land is bright.

Summary:

As if it wasn't already strange enough having everyone in Arcadia Oaks know about trolls, everyone also seemed to know Barbara Lake was dating one. She wasn't entirely sure she was dating one, but everyone else seemed to think she was. They gave her knowing looks in the grocery store, and a few of her patients asked to be treated by someone else when they recognized her, which was uncomfortable, although others gave her hugs and sympathetic looks, which were uncomfortable but in a different way.


It was all very strange, finding their way within the new parameters of their world. Walter didn't have a human form any longer, and that made their lives complicated - moreso. Jim and Claire were off in New Jersey, and they had a few hundred babies to deal with, and that wasn't even including figuring out the dynamics of their new relationship. Dating was hard enough even when you didn't have to factor in previous instances of betrayal, manipulation, attempts to kill your son, and interspecies sex.



My decoy fic, as it were - a treat I devised so that I could tell measured_words I was working on it :) It was an interesting challenge to come up with two distinct visions of what might happen to Barbara after the end of the series (and to keep them both straight in my head!)

The young woman visited not infrequently, at first to pay her respects and visit with Charmian, and later, once they had reached a more intimate level of friendship, because of her own particular interests. Henri was well aware that he shared his plaçée with his wife, and was quite content with the arrangement. "She's much more agreeable at home now," he confided in Dominique once.

"He's probably just about to settle in for a nice decade-long nap," Trevor said, but his heart wasn't in it. "You're going to say... we need to go back," he said, as Sypha matched his last five words perfectly.

Dear Author,

Thank you for writing something for me! I'm really looking forward to your story, whatever it turns out to be :)

General stuff: I love stories where things happen, where characters come out of the story changed in some way, even if it's a subtle change. I especially love the interactions between characters, dialogue, snark, personality clashes, confessions, romance. I love stories that don't provide oversimplified resolutions to complex situations, where things aren't necessarily all neatly wrapped up at the end - it's okay if everything's not happily ever after, as long as there's some hope for the future. I like fic that challenges traditional gender roles and expectations. I love humour, as highbrow or lowbrow as you like, depending on what suits the story. Please feel free to include other characters from any of these canons in supporting roles, or to make up original characters, whatever works for your story.

While I feel that porn can easily be the meat (heh) of a story, I like it best when it is wrapped in at least a delicate layer of plot, and when I can believe that it's these particular characters having sex. But I really and truly am open to fic of any rating! If you are more of a fade-to-black sort of author, that's fine; if you want to show me non-shippy character interaction - friendship, rivalry, adventure, introspection - that's great too. However, if you do feel inspired to go the more porny route, I love m/m, f/f, m/f, threesomes, foursomes, moresomes, poly relationships, bisexuality, kink - and I'm very hard to squick, so don't worry about that. (If you want to read more about my porny likes/dislikes/ideas, you can get an idea by reading my Yuleporn comment.) Please no non-canon deaths or completely depressing endings, otherwise let your imagination run wild!

I'm interested in seeing some post-Season 2 fix-it for Alucard/Trevor/Sypha, where they are reunited somehow, or never parted. I would like them to be happy!

Carmilla/Alucard is just one of those things that I have to imagine happened at some point in the past, or could in the future, if she stops in to see him at the castle while he's vulnerable. There is no concern about making this a healthy and well-adjusted relationship, I am fine if you want to have her manipulate him or vice versa.

Carmilla/Hector - again, I'm fine with this being totally dysfunctional and messed up.

Dracula/Isaac - I could see this being in the aftermath of Lisa's death, when Isaac is one of the few people Dracula can talk to or trust, or later, when things are falling apart even more.

Dracula/Lisa - something about the early days of their relationship, maybe? Or when they found out they were going to have a child? I would prefer not something too sad for this one, although wistful or acknowledging the complexity of their relationship is fine - just not dwelling on Lisa's death.

Hector/Isaac - come on, they should have kissed in that scene. I love the idea of them finding ways to cope with being the only humans in a castle full of vampires.

Sypha/Carmilla - this would presumably have to be in an AU or future fic of some kind, but I'm intrigued by the idea of Carmilla capturing her and having her way with her.

General note: for any vampire/human relationships I'm totally fine with erotic blood drinking being a Thing.

Trollhunters (Cartoon): Draal/Nomura (Trollhunters), Fanfiction

It's strongly implied that they had a romantic relationship in the past. I'd like to know more about it. How they met, what Draal thought about having feelings for an "impure", whether Nomura had ulterior motives or was manipulating him, or had genuine feelings in return. Or perhaps something in the future, if Nomura finds a way to bring Draal back - or an AU where he never died.

The Lion in Winter (1968): Eleanor of Aquitaine/Richard I of England (The Lion in Winter (1968)), Eleanor of Aquitaine & Richard I of England (The Lion in Winter (1968)), Fanfiction

I'd love something about the time when they were "every day together" - when Eleanor was teaching Richard everything she knew. If you want to interpret their messed-up relationship as incestuous, that is fine, or if you don't, that's also fine! Just something about her influence on her favourite son, please!

Books of the Raksura - Martha Wells: Rorra/Stone (Books of the Raksura), Ember/Shade (Books of the Raksura), Flicker/Shade, Consolation/Shade (Raksura), Consolation/Kethel (Raksura), Fanfiction

For Consolation/Kethel, I'd like to see something where they are affectionate with each other. Raksuras cuddle and engage in casual sex all the time, and I'd like to see Consolation trying some of that with Kethel, and seeing how he reacts.

For any of the Shade relationships, I mostly just want to see Shade be happy with someone. It could be complicated by various factors, but just a little moment of happiness would be lovely.

With Rorra/Stone, I love their pragmatic older folks relationship. Maybe something where she comes to visit, and the court can be scandalized, or something where Stone goes travelling with her for a while.

3 Below (Cartoon): Izita/Zadra (3 Below), Nancy Domzalski/Varvatos Vex, Fanfiction

With Izita/Zadra, I'd be curious to see something about taking comfort with each other in secret, while hiding the fact that they're rebels.

With Nana and Varvatos Vex, I just think they're adorable! Maybe something where she has him over for dinner, or they go out on a date together? What does courtship look like for his people?

Star Wars: Rebels: Alexsandr Kallus/Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (Star Wars: Rebels), Alexsandr Kallus/Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (SW: Rebels), Fanfiction

I'd be happy something from anywhere on the spectrum of enemies-to-lovers for these two. Hate sex, grudging mutual respect, taking my boyfriend home to meet the family... whatever :)

I'm going to try to post more over here! And at the very least, crosspost my fics and fandom stuff. So, welcome I guess?

Dear Yuletide author, thank you for writing something for me! I'm really looking forward to your story, whatever it turns out to be :)

General stuff: I love stories where things happen, where characters come out of the story changed in some way, even if it's a subtle change. I especially love the interactions between characters, dialogue, snark, personality clashes, confessions, romance. I love stories that don't provide oversimplified resolutions to complex situations, where things aren't necessarily all neatly wrapped up at the end - it's okay if everything's not happily ever after, as long as there's some hope for the future. I like fic that challenges traditional gender roles and expectations. I love humour, as highbrow or lowbrow as you like, depending on what suits the story. Please feel free to include other characters from any of these canons in supporting roles, or to make up original characters, whatever works for your story.

While I feel that porn can easily be the meat (heh) of a story, I like it best when it is wrapped in at least a delicate layer of plot, and when I can believe that it's these particular characters having sex. But I really and truly am open to fic of any rating! If you are more of a fade-to-black sort of author, that's fine; if you want to show me non-shippy character interaction - friendship, rivalry, adventure, introspection - that's great too. However, if you do feel inspired to go the more porny route, I love m/m, f/f, m/f, threesomes, foursomes, moresomes, poly relationships, bisexuality, kink - and I'm very hard to squick, so don't worry about that. (If you want to read more about my porny likes/dislikes/ideas, you can get an idea by reading my Yuleporn comment.) Please no non-canon deaths or completely depressing endings, otherwise let your imagination run wild!

All the rest of this is just in case you feel more comfortable writing with some idea or starting point to go on - if you have a different idea, please go for it. So, on to the specific fandoms!

Gentlemen of the Road - Michael Chabon (Amram, Zelikman)

More adventures of the greatest con men and thieves of the 10th century, please! Either pre- or post-canon would be fine. The book really gives the sense that they've had so many adventures and so much history together, and anything that shows a bit more of that would be wonderful. Other places they've travelled or other mishaps they've gotten themselves into? I love the banter and the snark and the obvious affection (even if it's sometimes strained by circumstances) between Amram and Zelikman. If you view this as a romantic pairing and want to develop their relationship so that it includes sex, that's great - if you don't, they can be platonic life partners and that's also great! Basically either way I'm happy!

Oglaf (Orc Captain)

What is the war that the New Model Army are engaged in, and how well do their tactics work? (Skin to win!) How did the orc captain rise to her current position of power? What does she like to do in her spare time? Basically tell me more about her! (If we matched on something else but you want to try a different fandom this one is only three comic strips long: starting here)

The Venture Bros. (Jonas Venture Sr., The Original Blue Morpho, Horace Gentleman, Kano (Venture Bros))

I'm curious about the escapades of the original Team Venture, and particularly how the original Blue Morpho fits into them. He and Kano seem to have been vigilantes who were at least in some situations allied with Team Venture, but in other situations opposed to them -
I'd be fascinated to see how they worked in practice. It also seems like the Blue Morpho and Jonas socialized together behind the scenes, so you could tell me more about that!

Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic (Cadugan, Lucas Greyfort)

I'd like something that explores Lucas and Cadugan's gloriously snarky/sweet relationship. If you want to just stick to the two of them and the various challenges they face (Lucas's family curse, his obligation to produce an heir, tension between Cadugan's love for the wilderness and castle life, the current situation with the destruction of the Black Mountain, future adventures, etc.), that's great, but on the other hand please also feel free to incorporate any other characters from the comic as well if it works for your plot! I'd definitely be intrigued to see what happens if Wolf and Cadugan ever meet again, for instance, and where things might go from there... Or if any of Lucas's past girlfriends show up, or the ghost of his father interferes further, that could be interesting too! Whatever ensues, I would prefer for Lucas and Cadugan to ultimately end up together, but if there are emotional complications, arguments, gender-bending, threesomes, that's fine. I love the humour of the comic too, so if you can incorporate any of that flavour, that's great.

JourneyQuest (Carrow, Death, Miad, Daggie)

This is really two sets of prompts (so if you pick one, you are not at all obliged to include the other two characters - although if you can think of a way to combine them, go for it!)

So first, Miad and Daggie! I'd love to see more of how they became friends, what challenges they've faced in running the Beard & Bonnet, or what you think might become of them further down the road. I'm very open to shipping them with one another, or keeping them as gal pals, whatever you prefer!

Second, Carrow and Death. I've been fascinated to see the progression of Carrow's storyline as he falls further into undeath and away from humanity. Death's obviously interested in him too, although her reasons are (I suspect) more complex that what she's stated (that she's intrigued because he's a free-willed undead). I'm interested in something that explores his revulsion/attraction to her, and her manipulation of him.

Books of the Raksura - Martha Wells (Consolation, First, Kethel, Shade)

I fell in love with Consolation and her companions First and Kethel (or whatever Kethel's name is...) I would like to see more of what happens to them after the events of the series. Do they succeed in their efforts to make a home for themselves and live among the Raksura? What are some things they have to learn, or do differently from the Raksura? Scenes of attempted domesticity are great - I adore Kethel's love of stories, for instance, and having his hair braided. How does Consolation take care of her people, or negotiate with other Queens?

Shade is an optional inclusion here - if you want to stick to the Fellborn court making a home and trying to learn about life, that's great, no need to include him. I admit I'm super curious what would happen if Shade ever met Consolation, though. No doubt he would have a lot of complicated feelings surrounding the Fellborn and his own past, and resentment of the expectation that he ought to help them or have anything in common with them, and it would be interesting to see if he could overcome those issues, or how it might play out.
