Dear May the Fourth Creator Yoda!

Some of this is taken directly from previous letters because my likes/wants really don't change all that much! Apologies for any repetition.

Aside from my DNWs (which aren't exactly extensive), go ahead and pick and choose through anything/everything below. I'm pretty easy to please so if you want to read the DNWs, skip the rest and write the fic of your heart in whatever / or & ship we matched on, that's fine by me.

Note: I'm completely happy with any rating ranging from the mildest G right up to the most explicit of explicit (for fic or for art). Also, length of prompts below doesn't indicate that I want one ship more than another - I just have more words for some and more incoherent squee for others. ;)

Star Wars specific note: I've read pretty much every SW novel released before about 2010, I've seen the films and I'm working on Clone Wars and I'm trying to keep up with the new comics in TPB, so feel free to throw any random piece of current canon or legends canon at me if you like (I'm not spoiler-averse), or completely ignore canon! I totally don't expect anyone to be an expert - I'm not and I've been a SW fan since I was about six years old. And feel free to write your own version of what you think will happen/want to happen after TFA if you match on a sequel trilogy ship, I'm 100% up for that, don't worry about it getting jossed.

Fanart: All my requests are for fic or art, and I should probably make it clear that I'm 100% happy with either! But I'm terrible at giving art-specific prompts (I'm trying to improve!) so really, if we match on art and nothing from the prompts below grabs you then I'm totally fine with just my ship appearing on the same page.

Kissing is good, sparring/physical activity is good, something reminiscent of a canon scene is good... also happy with something porny or dark. I love contrasting colours, bold lines, little details like jewellery or specific clothes people wore in canon, I like fingers twined together (or in hair), smiles, people having fun, scenes mid-action, or anything from my list of likes below!


100% DNWs:
  • children/pregnancy (not even vague mentions of pregnancy at all, please, including mpreg and oviposition, and no children as main characters - I'm happy to read a bit about the characters themselves as kids in the past, but I'd prefer everyone involved be adults at the time the fic takes place)
  • D/s lifestyle (casual D/s without minute negotiation, or totally unnegotiated dubcon iffiness, are both A-OK!)
  • humiliation (as a kink or otherwise)
  • scat/watersports
  • A/B/O
  • ageplay/infantilisation
  • any mention of spiders/tarantulas or similar - other creepy-crawlies are fine

Things I'm not fond of:
  • character death, if followed only by someone else's unending woeful angst (death in general is fine)
  • threesomes/moresomes/poly, unless requested
  • pure fluff/curtainfic - happy is wonderful, holding hands while skipping through meadows not so much! (Poe & BB-8 is totally an exception here - I'll absolutely take the cutest thing anyone can muster for those two!)


Basically, as long as it's not in my DNWs, absolutely go for it - I mean that 100%. Zombie apocalypse? Really kinky porn? Gore? Random crack? Badfic on purpose? Wacky AUs? All fine! But, if you want ideas about what I like:

General likes:
  • time loops
  • Pacific Rim fusions
  • snarky, sarcastic or tongue-in-cheek humour
  • banter
  • characters getting older; ageing
  • characters knowing each other really well
  • futurefic/post-canon
  • competence, whether physical or intellectual (or both)
  • action scenes; battles; fights (fistfights and with weapons)
  • characters being forced to fight (Hunger Games, Mortal Kombat, that kind of thing)
  • seemingly insignificant details that turn out to be super-important/significant
  • worldbuilding
  • ridiculous crossovers (or indeed sensible ones)

For shipfic (in addition to the above):
  • friends to lovers; enemies to lovers; enemies to friends to lovers
  • characters who know each other really well (or get to know each other really well) and show it without meaning to or really trying to
  • people not saying 'I love you' but clearly meaning/demonstrating it anyway
  • tough characters making themselves realistically vulnerable
  • differences and contrasts in age/height/etc. (especially when the smaller/younger one isn't actually small/young, only in comparison to the other character)
  • one character being physically stronger than the other (especially if the weaker one isn't weak, only weaker in comparison)
  • happy (or at least hopeful) endings
  • getting together
  • first time (first time together, or getting back together after years apart)
  • competence kink
  • loyalty kink; trust kink
  • jealousy/possessiveness/co-dependency/protectiveness
  • admiration (physical and/or intellectual)
  • me-and-you-against-the-world
  • identity porn (roleplaying; undercover; secret identities)
  • characters wearing each other's clothes (fine either way for m/m or f/f, fine for the woman in m/f to wear the man's clothes, but I'd prefer no male crossdressing)
  • fake dating or undercover turning into something more
  • everyone thinks they're dating (but they're not, except maybe then they are)
  • dating but they don't realise (or one of them doesn't but the other does, for cultural/obliviousness reasons)

Explicit/kinky fic:
  • fight sex, or sparring/arguing turning into more
  • rough sex in general, and rough sex that turns slower and/or more intense from one time to the next
  • knifeplay, gunplay, weaponplay in general
  • breathplay/choking (preferably with hands)
  • bloodplay (preferably involving knives)
  • semi-clothed sex; clothed/naked; how awkward clothing (or armour, etc.) is removed
  • sex in showers
  • one character shaving a (male) character's face (preferably with a cutthroat razor but I'll adore anything!)
  • one character writing on another's skin; marking with cuts or bruises
  • stories behind scars/bruises/tattoos (and touching/kissing them, or reopening/reinjuring them)
  • differences in age/height/strength
  • sexual fantasies
  • voice/accent kink; phone sex; sexual situations where one character can only hear the other one (e.g. in total darkness)
  • switching - I have absolutely no strict top/bottom roles in mind (and switching mid-scene is also great)
  • for m/m, first time topping/bottoming/with a guy
  • desperation; characters knowing they shouldn't but not being able to help themselves
  • characters who think they're just having casual sex ending up unexpectedly desperately in love
  • hard, desperate kissing; fingers in hair

Darker fic:
I enjoy darkfic and dark art so as long as it's not in my DNWs, go for it. Torture porn, ghost stories, scary magic, religious weirdness, twisted mindfuckery, non-con, gaslighting, serious body horror, all absolutely A-OK. Feel free to use bad/offensive/dirty language if it fits the fic, as much swearing as you like, etc. I'll read just about anything, including xeno, vore, serial killer AUs, whatever tickles your fancy. Basically: excepting my DNWs, feel free to try to weird me out!

--- Requested Ship: BB-8 & Poe Dameron

Okay, Poe and BB-8 having random adventures would be awesome!

Their first mission together. Any mission together (how did Poe come to trust BB-8 so much?). Downtime at a rebel base! Poe and BB-8 playing games, or flying for fun. Poe performing maintenance on BB-8. Staying in with BB-8 rather than going out drinking with the other pilots. Anyone else being baffled by the two of them actually being friends.

BB-8's version of events being told to Poe about Takodana and Jakku with Rey and Finn (and Han and Chewie) would be good. To be fair, pretty much anything with these two would be good, as long as it's cheery and sweet, at least by the end.

Totally don't mind if it's Poe's or BB-8's POV! :D

--- Requested Ship: Bria Tharen/Han Solo

Okay, so Bria is basically just like Leia but substantially less royal and from Corellia instead of Alderaan. She's intelligent and well-educated and strong and a member of the rebellion and you can kind of see why Han fell for her. And I love the trilogy Bria came from - I remember reading it as it came out all those years ago, checking back at the book shop to see if the next one had come in.

What would've happened if Bria hadn't left Han? What if they'd met again, later - maybe she turned up in Mos Eisley for some reason and got sucked into the plot of the original trilogy - how would that've worked out? Maybe they meet undercover like they did later on in the books, or playing sabacc, one of them getting the other out of a scrape, or Han comes across a group of rebels drinking in a bar and there's Bria with them...

--- Requested Ship: Darth Bane/Githany

They're terrible for each other but it's still great somehow! :D

How about Bane doesn't discover quite as many Sith secrets and remains with them (and with Githany)? Or Githany remains with the Jedi and they meet in battle? Maybe one of them teaches the other something, maybe they get stranded and have to work together, maybe they spar or they're pitted against each other in a lightsaber duel or Githany appears to Bane after her death as a Force ghost or somehow it turns out she survived after all.

--- Requested Ship: Darth Bane/Kas'im

That bit where Kas'im splits his lightsabers and Bane's all "D: you said it's a rubbish fighting style so you wouldn't teach it!" is fantastic - any more of one or both of them attempting to get one over the other (withholding information, lying, cheating, scheming) would be awesome.

A hint of mentor/mentee, master/apprentice would be great here (I doubt the Sith feel too bad about that), or maybe Kas'im doesn't die and somehow ends up fighting (with? against?) Bane later on. Maybe Kas'im defects to the Jedi. Maybe he flees and ends up living on some backwater world (Tatooine? Jakku? Dagobah?) or keeping the peace at Maz Kanata's place on Takodana (stretching the timeline a bit, but eh), or maybe he's serving drinks in a bar on Coruscant like this isn't a huge come-down for a former Sith master and they bump into each other.

One trying (or managing! or not!) to kill the other is totally fine if you want to go there.

--- Requested Ship: Lando Calrissian/Han Solo

Man, I love these two - they're just such loveable rogues! They just seem to know each other so well and pretty much have each other's number, and they could've been such great friends but it went a bit wrong!

I prefer them essentially good but willing to do what's necessary to protect themselves and their friends no matter what and damnit, it's not even a hard choice - see: Han totally shot first.

Playing sabacc. Drinking together. Pulling some sort of con together, flying together, having to pretend they don't know each other but they totally do. Meeting somewhere unexpectedly where they don't need to pretend they don't know each other and pretending they don't know each other anyway and flirting just to see who flinches first (except neither is willing to give in).

Betting with each other. Competing with each other. Competing with each other over the same girl and realising they're more interested in each other. Arguing over something and it ends up being something else entirely. Teasing each other till it goes a bit awry. Running jokes. Obligatory mention of sex pollen or something made them do it (and the fallout from it).

--- Requested Ship: Leia Organa/Evaan Verlaine

I really enjoyed the Princess Leia comic - Leia is a bit of a badass in it, which is as it should be, and I really like Evaan as this sort of tall, blonde, not-Leia female character who isn't really sure about her princess but sort of gets her by the end. Evaan as the princess of Alderaan after Leia would be really interesting (because, let's face it, she'd be just as kick-ass a princess as Leia is), so post-canon once they've pulled together all the surviving Alderaanians would be nice, or something mid-canon (preferably after Evaan's actually started to call Leia Leia instead of ma'am or princess or your highness). Pre-canon while Evaan is on Alderaan and what her life was like then would also be fun - totally happy for there to be a massive canon divergence here and no destruction of Alderaan, and Leia and Evaan end up together instead of Leia and Han. Also happy to have background Leia/Han and keep it in timeline if you like, or after Han dies (D:). Totally happy for you to set it around the time of TFA when they're older.

Some shippier things I like would be: I like Leia's comic jumpsuit, so if you're feeling smut-oriented then Evaan helping her princess out of her skin-tight clothing would be interesting! Maybe the two of them practicing their shooting or their hand-to-hand combat, their hair getting messy so one helps the other sort it out (what is it with royalty and complicated hairdos?)... I do like the two of them to be tough, though, and definitely not in need of saving (unless they're saving each other) - sparring together? Blaster training together? Maybe they met on Alderaan when Evaan was being mentored by Leia's mother, or maybe they meet again years later, after the events of the comic (or around TFA).

--- Requested Ship: Poe Dameron/Finn

I'm pretty sure they'd be nearly intolerably cute together, with/without BB-8 zooming happily around them.

Finn and Poe on a mission together! Fake boyfriends that turn out not so fake! Stranded somewhere, huddling for warmth, etc. Finn having a crush he doesn't realise is reciprocated. How much experience of these things does Finn have, anyway, given his background? Actual first time totally fine, or hey, maybe the stormtroopers are one big helmet-wearing orgy and Finn is sort of surprised when he propositions Poe and it turns out the rebels aren't quite like that. pollen, something made them do it (and they don't feel particularly bad about it), or Finn making a faily mess of seducing Poe who thinks it's hilarious but actually feels the same way. Or some sort of not-sure-if-they're-dating scenario where they're spending lots of time together and one or both of them just aren't sure what's actually going on between them.

--- Requested Ship: Poe Dameron/Ben Solo | Kylo Ren

Okay, I don't know if I'm going for "torture and porn!" or "AU where Kylo keeps Poe, with added Stockholm syndrome!" or "Poe knew Kylo when he was still Ben Solo!" or "Kylo redemption!" or what here. I'm totally happy wherever you want to take it, from really, really dark to much light(er).

I'd appreciate it if it weren't all hearts and flowers, however, even if you go for a redeemed or pre-Dark Side Kylo. I kind of like Kylo all twisted up and angsty, and Poe faintly cocky and eye-rolly and indefatigable in the face of danger.

--- Requested Ship: Qui-Gon Jinn/Obi-Wan Kenobi

Happy with this setting at any time in their relationship, as long as Obi-Wan's 17+. Also, I've read all of Jedi Apprentice and I'm happy for it to use any of that backstory for Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan or to ignore it completely.

I do like the whole master/apprentice thing these two have going on - if you want to play on that, with Qui-Gon (or both of them) feeling guilty, that works for me! Maybe a mission gone wrong (stranded, h/c, fake relationship for mission purposes, something made them do it - all the tropes, basically!).

Or: AU where Qui-Gon lives. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon pseudo-alive in the force after their death (with bonus skulking Anakin?). Discounting George Lucas's thing about Qui-Gon not being able to take corporeal form after he's dead...maybe Qui-Gon visiting Obi-Wan as a force ghost (Obi-Wan did spend quite a lot of time alone on Tatooine!), or Qui-Gon learning how to return as a force ghost and periodically weirding Obi-wan out - would it take years for him to take a form? Would Obi-Wan realise right away what was happening? Is he ever able to touch? Can Obi-Wan touch him?

--- Requested Ship: Rey/Ben Solo | Kylo Ren

Totally happy for these two to be related or not - any degree of relation (from full-on brother/sister to cousins to not related at all) is fine. Also, I'd prefer no Kylo-isn't-evil AUs (or Rey-is-evil AUs), but redemption is totally okay - as is Kylo really, really not being redeemed!

In terms of prompts: one takes the other captive, being forced to work together, amnesia, basically all the tropes. Fighting again and Rey getting stronger and stronger - maybe the Force is actually stronger with her than it is with him (oh God, please no midichlorians). Kylo being creepy. Kylo thinking he's toying with Rey but it's really the other way around. Kylo letting Rey think she's toying with him. Force-related sexcapades (mentally or physically - dreams, telepathy, whatever you like). AU where they meet earlier but Kylo's still Not Quite Right.

Totally okay with this being dark and grim and full of unhappy Stockholm Syndromey awfulness, betrayal, torture, or things actually working out between them somehow in spite of everything.
