Dear F5K Writer!

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), feel free to 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 fandom we matched on, that's absolutely fine by me.

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


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 iffiness, are both A-OK!)
  • humiliation (as a kink or otherwise) - sometimes I like it, sometimes it kills me; I can't explain why, so best to avoid!
  • scat/watersports
  • A/B/O
  • ageplay/infantilisation
  • any mention of spiders/tarantulas or similar - other creepy-crawlies are fine

Things I'm not exactly fond of:
  • character death, if followed only by someone else's unending woeful angst (character death in general is totally fine, however!)
  • threesomes/moresomes/poly, unless requested
  • pure fluff/curtainfic - happy is wonderful, holding hands while skipping through meadows not so much!


Basically, as long as it's not in my DNWs, absolutely go for it - I mean that 100%. Zombie apocalypse? Really kinky porn? Gore? Vore? 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 - as far in the future as you like
  • competence, whether physical or intellectual (or both)
  • action scenes; battles; fights (small- and large-scale; fistfights and with weapons)
  • characters being forced to fight and/or kill (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) - I'll read crossovers with anything I've written

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!

Avatar: Legend of Korra:

--- Requested Ship: Korra/Zaheer

Basically, this is based on that one scene where Korra goes to Zaheer and he helps her enter the spirit world.

I like that Zaheer has a cause and that it's not necessarily a bad cause, he just goes about it in a slightly odd way! I like that he's actually very spiritual and it really suits that he's one of the new airbenders (and a fantastic one at that, who's at the very least on a par with Tenzin who's been doing it his whole life). I like that he can enter the spirit world from his cell, and when he and Korra share a common cause he's absolutely willing to help.

I'd kind of like to see the two of them working together, either Zaheer being out of jail for a bit or Korra visiting him there for advice. Maybe he can teach her more about her spiritual side, or even help her learn to fly the way he does (or come close to it, since she's very much bound to the world). Then there's always the possibility of them meeting in the spirit world even though their physical bodies are far apart. I'd really just like to see how Korra deals with learning from him, and working with him, given their past and his ideals that very likely don't and won't change.

Relationship-specific: it'd be interestingly fraught with all the things that Zaheer did, including murder and trying to poison Korra and end the avatar line, but I do want dirtybadwrong Korra/Zaheer. Korra wanting it but being sort of horrified at herself and the situation, and Zaheer being either disappointed in himself because she should be dead or surprisingly zen about it all, or really manipulative. Maybe the wrongness helps Korra come to terms with everything that's happened, or maybe it actually makes her ten times worse! Creepy mentor/student relationship ftw, or maybe Zaheer kidnaps her, or or or. Also happy for them to end up in a weird mostly consensual relationship if that's where you want to take it, or all self-flagellating dub-con all the time.

Black Sails:

--- Requested Ship: Captain Flint/Charles Vane

Grumpy, grudging cooperation with gruff, irritable, semi-amused potential for hatesex (or enemies to lovers)! Prefer no unending Miranda-angst; happy to see backstory with Eleanor, Teach, Thomas. Also happy for this to include Vane's death, obviously, or a canon-divergent AU where Vane doesn't die, or they meet earlier during McGraw's visit to the Bahamas or perhaps Vane went to London at some point (drunken brawls turning into something shifty always work for me!).

I love Vane's self-assuredness and unwillingness to do anything he doesn't want to. For Flint, I like that he seems to be strangely more at ease with himself now that he's less McGraw and more Flint, because in all his McGraw scenes he seemed like he was trying very hard to restrain himself.

Ideas: Flint and Vane's first meeting (canon-divergent or not); meeting in another pirate port; drinking together; confessions; fist-fights and patching each other up afterwards; reluctantly working together; Flint remembering Vane as things move on.

--- Requested Ship: Charles Vane/Edward Teach

I like the idea of them being rough with each other (and the height/size difference) but knowing each other's limits, and I like the notion of pre-series power imbalance between them as much as them being more like equals later. Feel free to mention Vane betraying Teach or ignore it completely - a Vane who chose Teach instead of Eleanor might be interesting, for instance.

I like that Teach is basically a legend but he's looking for a legacy, that he's out for himself like a proper pirate, that he has a code the harks back to the golden age of piracy, that he doesn't seem to hold a grudge against Vane for choosing Eleanor and running him out of Nassau, that he's basically a stone-cold killer when necessary!

Ideas: Vane choosing Teach instead of Eleanor; Vane not going with Flint in S3; reunion when Teach comes back to Nassau; drinking games; Teach teaching Vane Very Piratey Skills (swordfighting, how to shoot, sailing, drinking); Teach remembering Vane.

The Chronicles of Riddick Series:

--- Requested Ship: Richard B. Riddick/Vaako

Riddick catches up with the fleet after the last film, or something between the end of COR and the start of Riddick. Sparring turning into something more is great, taking them both into the Underverse works for me, maybe Vaako helps Riddick break out of a slam or the other way around (or they get stuck there and have to stay), and feel free to get as kinky as you might like.

I like the idea of Vaako ending up with his purification reversed. I like the idea of Riddick ending up being (unwillingly) purified and whether or not he remembers his life after that, or if it comes back to him in pieces. I'm super into them fighting, and not really liking each other (or liking each other and having really odd ways of showing it). I like Riddick being a fantastic fighter and capable of more or less anything in terms of killing people - I like to think he's not overly concerned about the idea the Necros go around offing people, and I like the Pitch Black/Riddick characterisation of him as a killer, that it's in some way part of him and instinctual rather than just a story people have told about him.

This would be a fun fandom for accidental/forced marriage, imprisonment, stranded together, maybe soulmates, but I prefer the trope being somehow less straightforward in the case of soulmates, something twisted and dark and violent and almost more trouble than it's worth.

Just don't totally bash Dame Vaako if you can help it - I actually like her as a character. Heck, go for the Riddick/Vaako/Dame Vaako threesome if you like, I'm absolutely here for that.

--- Requested Ship: Richard B. Riddick/Dahl

Okay, I know, I know, Dahl says she doesn't sleep with guys. But, for some reason, and I know it's outright ridiculous, I like the idea of her making an exception for Riddick - literally no interest in any other guy except him, not because he's ~irresistible but because there's a genuine spark there. And no, I don't see this as being a great star-crossed smoochy, lovey-dovey love affair where they go off and get married and happy happy yay, but I think they'd probably both have a lot of fun with it and it could end up lasting. Probably not nicely, but still.

I'd be interested in seeing what Dahl really thinks of Riddick and what would happen if they ever met again. Riddick walks into a bar and Dahl's there, Dahl goes after him (for money, or maybe (reluctantly) for his help?), maybe they work together, maybe they're stranded somewhere together, whatever you like. Dahl being on top and in charge at least part of the time - whatever you take that to mean, from femdom to her just telling him exactly what she wants, and getting it - would be great (complete with Riddick really getting off on the whole thing, but still being a sarky git about it).

DCU (Comics):

--- Requested Ship: Bruce Wayne/Harvey Dent

I like these two, whether they're being antagonistic or they're being almost friendly.

Maybe something while Harvey's DA and before he's Two-Face. Maybe something after Harvey's Two-Face and he's been caught - playing chess in Arkham, maybe? Bruce asking Harvey for his help, or the other way round. Harvey being rehabilitated (whether or not that actually works) and Bruce meeting him as Bruce Wayne at some sort of function? Harvey as a villain doing pretty horrible things and Bruce trying to stop him but he's captured? Bruce trying to help Harvey himself? One saving the other's life? One threatening the other's life?

Basically, I'm happy with dark and twisted (on either of them's part), or something a heck of a lot lighter. Also happy with Harvey knowing Bruce's identity, and things like Harvey having a totally unrealistic split personality, etc. (so maybe Harvey knows but Two-Face doesn't?).

--- Requested Ship: Bruce Wayne/Oliver Queen

I'm thinking pre-nu52 DCU Ollie here (I've read basically all the GA from before that). I haven't seenmuch Arrow so please please please don't write me Arrowverse Ollie! More than happy to see a made-up BvS version of Ollie if you're interested in writing that.

I love their antagonistic relationship, but I also love that they're able to work together when they need to - working together fic would be great. I also love the fact that they're basically the same but different (similar backstory, similar occupations, etc.). Ollie doing archery is great, too - Ollie teaching Bruce?

I'm totally up for identity porny in-costume hatesex (or not hatesex), or maybe they're playboys out on the town who really ought to be old enough to know better, except they're more interested in each other than the women they're with. Maybe something before they know each other's secret identities, or while they're pretending they don't. Maybe something fighty or Ollie teasing Bruce. Maybe one's been injured and the other one helps him get back to fighting strength and things develop. And tropey fic is great - undercover as a couple, trapped together, any of that stuff.

--- Requested Ship: Bruce Wayne/Michael Carter

There's this bit in Booster Gold where Bruce and Booster almost actually have a pleasant moment - that's kind of what I'm looking for! Bruce being long-suffering but understanding what it's like to lose people, and Booster needing someone to talk to, maybe? Booster saving Bruce's life (or Batman's). Booster coming to Bruce for help, or being injured and somehow ending up at Bruce's place.

How about tropes! On a mission together and they end up trapped, or imprisoned, or huddling for warmth... one of them has amnesia, Bruce meets Booster while one or both of them are out of costume, Booster asks for advice, Booster actually makes Bruce smile! Something with Booster being hero-worshippy, or Bruce (grudgingly admitting Booster did a good job, sparring, working together - basically, I love the idea of happy-charming Booster with darker, grumpier Bruce, cracky or played perfectly straight.

The Expendables (Movies):

--- Requested Ship: Barney Ross/Lee Christmas

Lee and Barney I absolutely adore for their banter and old-married-coupleness. I love slash for these two (obviously), but even without a sexual relationship they're pretty clearly very good friends and Lee obviously feels betrayed with Barney leaves with the younger guys in E3. Something about them rebuilding trust after that would be great, as would backstory about how they met; really, anything that plays on that loyalty and trust they have would be amazing, from how it came to be to missionfic where their lives are in each other's hands, from one of them shooting/knife-throwing in the other's direction to blindfolds and bondage.

I'm totally happy with them both having previous same-sex experience (possibly with Stonebanks for Barney, or with OMCs or random crossover characters, though I think Lee's still at least trying to be Very, Very Straight until such a time as he and Barney get together). However, I'd really like first time fic for them if that's a possibility, or at least a note about their first time and how they got together if you go for established relationship; I think the friendship suddenly bubbling over into something they didn't exactly expect with pushing and shoving and swearing and potentially Lee's knives involved would be delightful (maybe one of them nearly died, maybe for a really stupid reason?), as would the two of them being awkward about realising they want to be more than friends (though I suspect Barney would be looking at it from the POV of relationships with coworkers aren't a great idea, and Lee would be more about having to abandon his quest for wife and kids and The Life He's Meant To Have).

Playing on the age difference with these two is something I really like, as is the two of them being Tough Guys Who Can't Talk About Their Feelings (so they show them instead). Sparring is good. Lee being Very British makes me smile and I love Barney's thumb brace and ridiculous tattoos (thanks, Sly!). Missions are also great, whether they're slogging through jungle and blowing stuff up, or maybe they have to wear nice suits for once and they're each surprised how well the other scrubs up!

Ideas: life-threatening mission gone wrong leads to ~feelings coming out; undercover as a couple for a job; Barney gets a new tattoo and Lee decides he wants to see the rest; suit porn; how they met.

--- Requested Ship: Barney Ross/Trench Mauser

Trench and Barney, Barney and Trench... where did all that antagonism come from? They clearly know each other pretty well and they both have roughly the same attitude toward each other (i.e. teasing, but they'll risk life and limb to come to each other's rescue if they need to) - where did that come from? Did they serve together? Was there a team before the Expendables? Is Trench's team successful? Do they work together again after E3?

I have a sort of weird headcanon of Trench turning out to be one of Arnie's other characters, like Matrix from Commando or Dutch from Predator, but don't feel like you need to tie yourself to that at all. Though if you feel like tossing the Expendables into a Predator scenario and seeing what happens, that would be sort of fun!

Past Barney/Trench with present Barney/Lee is also fine, and for some reason I wouldn't say no to past Stonebanks/Barney/Trench! Maybe the two grouchy older guys get together unexpectedly after the third movie. Maybe they had a relationship forty years ago or more that's stuck with them now and then over the years. Casual or exclusive are both fine, but I'd be interested in an element of them having known each other for ages and them being grizzled ageing (ex-)comrades who know each other. Still, I'm pretty much open to anything here!

Ideas: working together (past or present, reluctantly or otherwise); running around the jungle with guns like Rambo and Dutch from Predator; unexpectedly ending up getting together after E3 though nothing's ever happened between them before; being competitive.

--- Requested Ship: Barney Ross/Conrad Stonebanks

Basically, backstory! Something about the time they met, if they were both in the military together, how they came to be friends, how it turned into more than that... There's clearly a sense of betrayal Barney feels quite strongly, and he doesn't seem to want to kill Stonebanks so much as he feels he has to kill him. Did Stonebanks feel like communicating with Barney after he "died"? Did Barney sort of have an idea about what was going on but not look into it until he had to?

I like to think that this was the same sort of relationship Barney has with Lee (except that Lee is actually trustworthy) - all the banter and loyalty and saving each other's arses while they're working, and then drinking and tattoos and whatnot afterwards, maybe a hidden relationship (maybe it's real for them both, maybe Stonebanks used it to pull the wool over Barney's eyes as regards his other work), maybe just friends with benefits. I obviously do like Barney/Lee too, but I'd prefer that either Barney/Lee doesn't happen or that it's endgame Barney/Lee if you want to include both ships.

Ideas: how they met; a previous mission; Stonebanks lives and the angst continues (is redemption actually possible or is it just Stonebanks goes to jail and Barney angsts?); regrets (from either side); Barney and Stonebanks run into each other again earlier.

Hunger Games Series - All Media Types:

I should probably mention that I've read all the books and seen all the films and I don't have a preference between the two. If you want to write a specific version, go for it - you're not going to spoil/disappoint me.

--- Requested Ship: Katniss Everdeen/Cinna

Okay, embarrassing truth: when I read the books, I totally hoped Cinna and Katniss would somehow end up together. He just seemed to care about her as a person more than anyone else in the books did, to me - even more than Peeta, in a weird way.

Sooo! Maybe fix-it fic where Cinna doesn't die and they meet again after it's all over (maybe he was shot but he survived - could've been smuggled out by 13 and looked after?), or he wasn't shot, he was just kidnapped, and they both have traumas to deal with.

Also totally down with something mid-series with the two of them getting into something vaguely inappropriate while Katniss is still 17ish - maybe Cinna's there at dinner in the tributes' quarters and sticks around after, maybe Cinna's there in 13 when Katniss arrives, maybe he's there at Tigris's place when they go back to the Capitol. Maybe Peeta doesn't make it and he comforts her afterwards or maybe he goes out to 12 mid-series because Katniss needs to make an appearance of some sort (maybe he's there to design her wedding dress?). Maybe he finds some way to take her out in the Capitol before one of the Games.

I hate to say it but I'd basically adore anything with these two.

--- Requested Ship: Katniss Everdeen/Finnick Odair

Oh, Finnick. Of all the deaths in this series, his somehow hit me hardest!

I love how self-assured and basically cocky he comes across as being, and how he's basically the biggest flirt in the universe but maybe that's as much situational as it is in his nature and he does what he has to to survive. Except then it turns out there really are people he loves and goals he has that aren't just related to post-victory celebrity hedonism.

I really liked that the trident he got in his Games was the most expensive-seeming favour Katniss had ever seen - how impressed with Finnick might she have been? How about they meet earlier (he must have been a mentor at the games Katniss and Peeta won, for example) - maybe there's a party, maybe he gives her advice, maybe there's a moment where she thinks maybe he's not just a flirty celebrity, and they're a lot more alike than she'd ever thought.

Maybe: Annie and Peeta don't make it out of the Capitol and Finnick and Katniss end up comforting each other. Maybe there's something going on while Peeta and Annie are still stuck there, and Finnick and Katniss are horrified when they find out they've died, or they don't die and things just don't work out.

How abouuuut, Finnick doesn't die and sometime later they meet again, in the Capitol, or maybe Finnick goes back to 4 and Katniss meets him there (what would he be doing? What would she be doing?).

Orrrr, there's always the "oh God, how did it get so grim" alternative of the rebellion doesn't happen, Katniss goes to live in the Capitol and ends up "working" with Finnick, whether that's a one-off or otherwise.

--- Requested Ship: Katniss Everdeen/Haymitch Abernathy

Totally fine with Woody Harrelson!Haymitch or slightly paunchier, more drunken book!Haymitch. S'up to you!

I'd be oddly interested in post-canon fic for these two, or canon-divergent post-canon.

How about...Peeta doesn't make it and Haymitch tried to help Katniss through that, whether she stays in the Capitol or goes back to 12 and whether or not they actually do help each other and feel better, or they just end up miserable with benefits.

Or, things don't work out with Peeta (he's still not quite sure he trusts her due to the conditioning he went through, or they've just grown apart?) and she ends up spending a surprising amount of time with Haymitch instead. (Or AU where Peeta doesn't survive the first Games and Katniss does, thanks to Haymitch's help in getting her the sponsors she needs).

Also fine with mid-canon if you like - something while they're in 13, or while they're touring, or in the tributes' quarters waiting for either one of the Games to start - maybe they don't particularly like each other for a start (probably not a huge stretch!) but after he's started really working to get help for her in the Games, she realises he's maybe ended up how he is because of his own Games.

Maybe they end up drinking together. Maybe an alt ending where the rebellion can't happen and they spend a lot of time drunk in 12 or being expected to be charming in the Capitol and maybe they're not the only two who understand but there's a sort of weird bond there. Orrrrr, AU where the training period is a lot longer?

Pacific Rim (2013):

I'm here for all the sparring and kaiju-fighting, drift compatibility, ghost drifting, etc. Or, they start doing weird drift testing after the movie and science goes wrong. Or revenants! New aliens that aren't the kaiju!

--- Requested Ship: Hercules Hansen/Chuck Hansen

I'd like to see the first time they drifted or the first time they fought a kaiju, the sort of impact that Herc having piloted with his brother has on piloting with Chuck, training together, how exactly a physical relationship could start between them (did it start in the drift, maybe?).

I like this ship problematic rather than just cheerful - the two of them fighting and Herc not quite knowing how to be a father, Herc having angst because he thinks it's an abuse of his position (I'd prefer it's not actual abuse, btw, maybe with Chuck actually starting it), Chuck not giving a damn what Herc thinks (or at least pretending that way), the two of them having huge problems with PTSD or drift-related issues or everything getting mixed up between them to the point where they've no idea why they're doing what they're doing.

I also requested this for the Darkest Night exchange last year, and some of the tags I requested for that are (in case it's useful!): amnesia; came back wrong; character is dead and doesn't know it; daddy issues; dream invasion; dubious consent due to identity issues; forced body cohabitation; forced masturbation; forced orgasm; ghosts; guilt; mind games; parallel universes; resurrection; soulmates gone wrong; telepathy; the road to hell is paved with good intentions; time loop; unhealthy relationships.

--- Requested Ship: Hercules Hansen/Stacker Pentecost

Clearly they're secret lovers prior to the movie! ;) That or something they had going on before Stacker ended up heading the PPDC. Raising kids in the PPDC (though I'd rather it not focus on the kids too much).

It's interesting that Stacker doesn't have issues with piloting with Chuck at the end of the movie because he's his father's son - have Herc and Stacker ever drifted? Have they sparred together? Maybe Stacker is somehow not dead and getting together only happens after that, with Herc gutted about Chuck and Stacker being the last one to see him alive.

I like their physical size, physiques, accents, the fact they're both a bit older...

--- Requested Ship: Hercules Hansen/Raleigh Becket

I'm thinking post-movie fic here, but if you have an idea for mid-movie fic (or pre-movie if you want to go there), absolutely go for it.

Maybe there's a new wave of kaiju and for handwavy reasons they end up having to pilot a jaeger together (I do love Mako, though, so I'd rather it not be because she died!).

Maybe once the kaiju are gone there's literally no funding left and they all go their separate ways, except Herc and Raleigh run into each other or they call each other or they email or something until it turns into something more. Or they're hired by the same private security/military company and keep running into each other (or they're hired for looking at new applications of drift technology because they're some of the only people who've done it, and spending that much time inside each other's heads starts to get to them).

How about the two of them get drunk together and reminisce sometime post-film and they end up doing something they're not sure they should've done... or the kaiju return (or there's some other alien threat) and they get called back in together, maybe even years later.

--- Requested Ship: Stacker Pentecost/Mako Mori

Odd pseudo-incest ahoy. And that's precisely how I'd like it played, if possible - she's been kind of raised by him, she respects him, and yet maybe an odd kind of relationship ends up springing up between them that neither of them has a clear handle on except they both want it. Maybe they both keep trying to call it off but can't. Maybe Stacker ends up blaming himself and Mako isn't sure how to tell him not to (or that she wants to tell him not to).

Totally happy with either one of them initiating this, or it just being A Thing That Happens at some point because they've spent so much time together in such a pressurised environment and they have FEELINGS. Canon-divergent AU where Stacker can actually still pilot jaegers with Mako being his co-pilot for reasons? Drifting without being in a jaeger? Stacker survives and he's in a coma so Mako drifts with him? Stacker training Mako and while they're fighting it all goes a bit sideways?

Things I love about these two are her respect for him, her toughness and intelligence, his gruffness and bluffness, and the size/age difference between the two of them.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015):

--- 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: Rey/Kylo Renn

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.

X-Men (Original Timeline Movies):

--- Requested Ship: Scott Summers/Logan

I'm thinking mostly of the original timeline movies here because that's what I have the most prompts for and I enjoyed James Marsden as Scott, but if you have an alternate timeline idea then absolutely feel free to go for that - I enjoy those movies, too. basically, I'm up for pretty much any version of Logan/Scott (including comics or the X-Men cartoon) if the mood strikes you.

In terms of the canon, I love the whole mutation thing in general, and I love the strangely not-quite-contemporary tech, and the fact that Logan's basically this holdout from a past age who likes to get into fights and pretty much doesn't give a damn what people think of him (and is gruff and non-communicative compared to Scott being oh-so-very modern). I like Scott having a strong sense of duty and responsibility and being slightly preppy but with a very nearly closet-rebel edge to him. I prefer no or very little crossover with the MCU here, if possible (though obviously mentioning MCU characters' existence is fine, I just prefer they not be main characters).

I love that these two are so competitive with each other, so irritated by each other, so different from each other, and yet they do have common ground between them that's not just Jean. I like that they're both tenacious and strong and willing to do what's right (even if Logan might need a bit of persuasion now and then), and that they're apparently able to work together despite that. But mostly I like the antagonism and how that could so easily spill over into something else! Especially considering Logan's claws and his healing factor. I'm also a fan of their leather uniforms, if that's remotely helpful!

If you're down with hatesex (or something that just starts out that way), I'm totally happy to read that. If you're interested in a kind of grudging he's-the-only-one-who-understands thing after Jean's death, totally happy with that, too, and with them (accidentally or entirely knowingly) developing a relationship once Jean is dead or with canon divergence where Scott and Jean have split up pre-X1. I'm 100% fine with a PWP if you want to go that way (but smut totally isn't necessary if it's not your thing). I like the idea of sparring ending up in something else (be that sex or just the notion that maybe they're attracted to each other, or maybe they're aroused by it against their better judgement?).

I like the idea of them working together, just the two of them, and either something like fighting ending up in post-mission sex, or the mission going awry and them ending up stuck together, or h/c (fine with Scott being the hurt party, of course, but if you can finagle it so Logan's actually hurt for more than a couple of minutes then feel free to go for that, too!). A day in the life of Scott and Logan at the school would also work, or go totally tropey if you like - time loops, or sex pollen/fuck or die, or bodyswap, or undercover as a couple, everyone thinks they're dating, that kind of thing, always works for me.

If you're here for alternate timeline fic, I really like the idea of Logan being pleased (or as pleased as Logan ever is) that Scott's actually alive in this timeline and trying to keep him from dying again. Scott being rather confused by that and Logan stoically not explaining is totally fine! Likewise, if you decide to go a comicsy or cartoony route, I'm totally fine with any of the wacky storylines playing a part and with Logan being less Hugh Jackman and more short-but-hugely-muscular. I'm yet to come up against a version of Logan I don't like!


--- Requested Ship: Barney Ross (Expendables)/Casey Ryback (Under Siege)

Okay, I admit it: I love the idea of Steven Seagal turning up in an Expendables film.

I can't see any reason why Ryback and Barney couldn't've met in service - backstory for that would be great. There's also no reason they couldn't be acquaintances who work together sometimes, or meet on an op - maybe Ryback got back in with the Navy and didn't spend the rest of his career confined to a galley, goes back to the SEALs, they need the Expendables' help... maybe Strannix didn't die and they need Ryback's help? But don't think I'm tied to there being tons of plot if you're not feeling it. Short is good (they meet, they reminisce, etc.), as is PWP.

Casey's apparently an excellent cook, so feel free to go for him cooking for Barney. Also: sparring! Maybe they're super-competitive! Maybe sharing war stories. Maybe they know things about each other that the others don't. The banter would probably be epic because they're both so sarcastic.

Basically: older guys being super-competent, or the two of them as younger guys... being super-competent!

--- Requested Ship: Captain Flint (Black Sails)/Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre 2006)

I'm thinking of the Rochester from the 2006 Toby Stephens version of Jane Eyre here, because, well, both characters are played by Toby Stephens. Yes, I'm That Fan.

Black Sails and Jane Eyre are separated by something like 40-50 years, but I'm sure we can blur the lines a bit! A bit earlier/later and you never know, their paths could have crossed either in London or in the Caribbean, etc. Maybe Rochester ran into Flint instead of Bertha. Maybe Rochester knew the Hamiltons and was introduced to James McGraw, to whom he bears a spooky resemblance.

Maybe they're related - secret brothers, half brothers, cousins, whatever. Angst is fine, as I suspect there'd be angst anyway - Rochester seems to have poor luck in love and Flint is just a ball of grey-moralled, angst-ridden murder. And I do love that they're both Toby Stephens, so whether you go the slightly odd relations route or not (I'm absolutely not tied to it!), I'd very much like them to be very much aware that they look strikingly alike.

--- Requested Ship: Eleanor Guthrie (Black Sails)/Elizabeth Swann (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Okay, so they're basically the same character in different canons (see also: Elaine Marley from Monkey Island!). Eleanor has real pirates to deal with and Elizabeth has supernatural pirates (amongst other stuff!), but they both come at it head-on and don't flinch when things go sideways.

I'd kind of like to see what happens when their worlds collide: the supernatural happening in Black Sails would be horrible and grim and bloody and pretty much glorious. Elizabeth in Black Sails would probably be pretty grim and bloody, too. I'd also be interested in Eleanor and Elizabeth somehow ending up being (unlikely, I admit) governors of Nassau and Port Royal respectively and there being trade or some sort of interaction between them, or Eleanor taking up as a pirate with Elizabeth (and maybe Jack and Will and co).

Maybe a strange AU where Elizabeth married Norrington (who becomes governor of Port Royal), and Eleanor marries Woodes Rogers (as governor of New Providence) - you can see how that might lead to the two of them being in the same room, and then shenanigans! Of course, I'd still like them to maintain a sense of agency and not just sit around in pretty dresses and crochet or whatever, like they ever would. Or maybe Elizabeth has her own pirate crew and operates out of Nassau, under Eleanor's rule.

Maybe Elizabeth is older (telling tall tales to Eleanor?) or Eleanor is older (odd kind of role model to Elizabeth?), or they're totally contemporary. Also, I'm happy for Elizabeth to have known and/or married Will or not, for the timelines to be totally different, entirely up to you.

--- Requested Ship: Ellen Ripley (Alien Series)/Rita Vrataski (Edge of Tomorrow)

I basically love the rather grim, dark sci-fi universe of these two movies. I like the technology that looks like it could actually be part of the world because it's not just slick and clean and great.

I think you could probably finagle the timelines so that either Rita's older during the events of the Alien movies, or there's cryosleep shenanigans that mean they meet later on. Or heck, maybe there's off-world stuff happening when the events of EoT happen that we just don't know about and they're actually somehow contemporaries. Or Weyland-Yutani did it, something else, or handwave. Handwaving is A-OK.

I bet Ripley would rock in one of the powered suits they use in Edge of Tomorrow, and Rita teaching her to use it would be amazing. Ripley and Rita in a time loops. Ripley and Rita dealing with xenomorphs. Ripley and Rita in space!

Do they get along or is Rita as gruff with Ripley as she seems to be with everyone else? Training together and things develop unexpectedly. Maybe Rita's one of the marines in Aliens - how would that change things? Maybe Rita being Ripley's training officer before she goes on her first mission or the work together or just meeting in a bar... totally happy with a one night stand here or a full-blown relationship.

--- Requested Ship: Evy Carnahan O'Connell (The Mummy Series)/Marion Ravenwood (Indiana Jones Series)

They're roughly contemporaries (I know, I know, Marion's supposedly born in 1909 and Evy in 1890, but 1890 sounds FAR too early for Evy. If you go with age difference, I'd say Evy was born in 1900 and was therefore mid-20s at the time of the first Mummy film), and I kind of like the idea of their fathers having known each other, families having moved in the same circles, etc.

I also like them maybe having gone to school together (either boarding school in England or maybe Marion went to Oxford?), and then their lives diverging (though they're oddly not all that dissimilar when it comes to strange adventures!). Or, maybe they knew each other in a past life. Or several past lives. Maybe they've adventured throughout time, just in different bodies!

If you're not into the idea of them having known each other pre-movies, how about they meet while on some kind of adventure? Egypt is a good stand-by but maybe South America or somewhere like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, could be interesting. Then again, go with what you like and if you've got any idea about Viking treasure hoards or religious artefacts or rare books or whatnot, go for it!

I'm sort of intrigued by the idea of there being sort of culture clash between them, with Evy the prim and proper Brit and Marion slightly brasher considering she's lived in some interesting places and very much not in the lap of luxury. Drinking competitions! Battles of wits (because they're both clearly intelligent)! Starting off on opposite sides but coming together for the Greater Good!

--- Requested Ship: Joe Carroll (The Following)/Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal)

Basically, the darker and kinkier and more problematic in terms of everyone's screwed up desires and relationships the better, here! But if that's not your thing then a case-related teamup would likewise be joyous - doesn't need to be hugely plotty, as any kind of character interaction would be totally my thing here.

What would Hannibal make of Joe, and vice versa? Would Hannibal's interesting brand of therapy work on Joe? Did they perhaps both know Joe's mentor? How on earth would the two of them actually converse? Has Hannibal read Joe's terrible book? Do they talk about Poe and dark romanticism? Does Joe know anything about Dante? What about an AU where they both work at Winslow, or both end up in the same facility post-incarceration (breaking out together or just having interesting conversations together)? Is Joe really dead after the end of The Following (and what does Ryan do)? What happens to Hannibal (and Will) post-series?

I'm happy for Will and/or Ryan to make appearances since they're so integral to Joe and Hannibal's stories - also happy to read any permutation of the four of them together, up to and including the serial killer foursome o' doom.

--- Requested Ship: Rick O'Connell (Mummy Series)/Indiana Jones (Indiana Jones Series)

They're roughly contemporaries and I kind of like the idea of their fathers having known each other (we don't know much about Rick's dad, so maybe he was some sort of historian? maybe he worked with Indy's dad?), or them having gone to school together, and then their lives diverging (though they're oddly not all that dissimilar when it comes to their strangely supernatural adventures!). Maybe Indy was medjai in a past life. Maybe they've know each other dozens of times.

If you're not into the idea of them having known each other pre-movies, how about they meet while on some kind of adventure? Egypt is a good location for it but maybe South America or somewhere like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, could also be interesting. Then again, go with what you like so if you've got any ideas about Viking treasure hoards or religious artefacts or rare books or whatnot, go for it!

If you're up for plot, maybe Rick being along for the ride in one of the Indiana Jones films, or Indy showing up in The Mummy? Maybe they meet in the British Museum or they know each other by reputation, or meet through Evy and/or Marion. Nazi-fighting is an obvious one where Indy's concerned. Or maybe they meet in a bar somewhere completely random and they hit it off, realise they're both after the same artefact, or end up in bed.

Rick wearing Indy's hat would be amusing, the two of them being mistaken for each other, being trapped together, a competition, Indy teaching Rick to use his whip...

--- Requested Ship: Rita Vrataski (Edge of Tomorrow)/Mako Mori (Pacific Rim)

I'd love to see them pilot a jaeger or Mako being involved in the Mimic War, one training the other, sparring, getting under each other's skin and on each other's nerves. You know Mako would try to be professional, and Rita wouldn't be shy about letting everyone know what she thinks. Maybe Rita's the seasoned pro who's lost her partner and gets Mako as a replacement.

Maybe Pacific Rim fits into the timeline just after Edge of Tomorrow and Rita's older and grumpier - how would Mako get in under her defences? Who was Rita's former partner (I'm up for that being Cage, Hendricks, or an OC)? How would Mako deal with suddenly understanding how Rita and Cage saved the world that one time? I tend to think Cage tells Rita after the end of EoT and knows enough about her to convince her it's true.

Totally happy to see any of the characters from either movie in this, if we do happen to match on it. If you'd like to include any Mako/Raleigh or Rita/Cage, I'm totally fine with that, but absolutely not required - I'm 100% here for the Mako/Rita.

--- Requested Ship: Victoria Winslow (RED)/M (James Bond - Dench)

These two women are absolutely fantastic and if we match on this, you're an absolute star for seeing this, too! ;) I should probably note that I'm totally happy with M's name being "Olivia Mansfield" if you like, or make something up, or just go with M.

Totally fine with them having worked together or against each other - were they ever sent out in the field together? Maybe M was Victoria's handler while she was working at some point (until maybe something goes wrong and M ends up in the field to try to save Victoria?). Did they train together? Did M train Victoria? Has Victoria ever taught M anything?

Or, tropey fic - undercover as a couple, trapped together, identity porn...pick a trope and run! Or, they don't meet until they're much older (maybe they know each other by reputation?).

100% fine with them being young slips of things or with them meeting when they're closer to their most recent canon ages (or (semi-)retired).

--- Requested Ship: Victoria Winslow (RED)/Harry Hart (Kingsman)

I seriously love whoever it was who came up with this ship.

I love that Victoria's older than Harry, so maybe she trained him, at least in part. Maybe they worked together, once upon a time - maybe Harry and Victoria as a sort of Steed and Peel duo!

Maybe Maybe MI6 and the Kingsmen have to work together and Victoria's who they send. Maybe they meet on an op and have to cooperate. Maybe one saves the other's life. Maybe one's sent to kill the other, before or after Victoria's spat with MI6. Maybe Bond-like casinos and evening dress in Monte Carlo. Maybe Harry looking less than impressed with wandering the countryside in his suit. Just, silly and hyper-competent and life-threatening shenanigans would be great.

Totally happy with this being set while they're younger or present day, or maybe they meet up again in the future, or a weird mix of all three. :D
