Dear Creator, thank you very much in advance for making something for me. This is my first time participating in this fest and I am brimming with excitement. I am sure I will love everything that you generously choose to make. Thank you so much for offering to write/draw something in one of these fandoms.
I have made some prompts & suggestions, but please feel free to take things in whatever direction you like and/or include other characters. My strict DNWs are gratuitous violence, abuse and lack of consent (physical, social, sexual, etc.), any sexual situations for characters not of age, on or off-screen. Realism, magical realism & surrealism are all fine. I strongly prefer art with lower ratings; as for fic, wherever the muse takes you.I like:
historical (if appropriate) and worldbuildy detail, scenery porn, what-if AUs, original characters, time travel, ghost/afterlife stories, mythological and supernatural elements, and magical realism. I like gen, het, slash, and femslash. In general I'm not a fan of AU that completely changes the setting, but if you have a brilliant idea, go for it; I would prefer "interesting" to "mundane" AUs, e.g., in SPAAAACE yes, coffeeshop no. (Coffeeshop in SPAAAACE, okay!). In fic:
Themes like quests, journeys, transition, and liminal spaces; reflection, self-improvement, love, generosity, symbols; visual art and statues, micro and macro spaces, and tactile exploration. If you want to create WHAT-IF, go for it! Kudos to human-dolphin joint societies, atavistic tails, shark meritocracy, journeys to the bowels of the earth, inner demons made flesh and taking over, in short, any sort of soft sci-fi philosophical extravaganza.In art:
I like both serious portraits and funny little cartoons, as well as landscapes that tell a story (with maybe a hint of the characters' presence). I love interesting and experimental compositions, unusual perspectives, emphasis on textures such as hair and clothing, and scenery porn (Mountains! Trees! Cliffs with water crashing on them! Brooding ruins of an ancient castle!) and I like line drawings as well as full color. I like historical detail and obscure trivia, nature and architecture, water bodies and forests, colours. I also like woolly mammoths, dinosaurs, and space, so if in doubt, just throw in a velociraptor on a spaceship.Tricks I would like:
ghost stories, supernatural elements, afterlife stories, relationships between living characters and ghosts/spirits/supernatural entities, meddling deities, magical objects that do surprising things. Mildly spooky things. In general I prefer happy endings, but bleak for the purpose of narrative cohesion works, too.Treats I would like:
strong, heartfelt relationships, love for friends, family, life companions, romantic or otherwise, taking care of other people (when one is in charge of them, dependent on them, or in some relationship), loyalty, kindness, doing the good thing and/or the right thing, etc. My all-time favourite is the baroque theatre invisible mistress trope, which is basically Eros & Psyche – one falls for the other while their face & identity are concealed by a mask or disguised in the dark. As the fandom jargon goes, identity porn FTW. Please don't add in any unrequested background non-canonical relationship. Explicit sex okay, non-explicit sex is okay, no sex is okay, but any sex should be in believable language for that era or fandom. UST, gen, all good. I like sex in fic, but I prefer more focus on the emotions than the physical mechanics, and no BSDM or bloodplay or watersports or anything that might get a special tag.
I would prefer not to receive explicit horror (fic or art), any kink you'd specifically tag, or artwork that depicts explicit sex (NSFW R-rated is fine, NC17 showing genitals is not). I do not want any fic focusing on pregnancy, children, or with the A/B/O trope.
Now onto the specific fandoms. (If none of my vague ideas appeal to you, I assure you that as long as you incorporate things I have said I like, and avoid things I have listed as dislikes, I will be happy with whatever you choose to create.)( Frontier Wolf (Sutcliff) )( The Eagle (of the Ninth) (Sutcliff) )( DCU (Movies) )( Burnt (2015) )( John Wick (Movies) )( Person of Interest (TV) )( Spooks (TV) )( Aubrey-Maturin (O'Brian) )( Hannibal (TV) )( Southland (TV) )
