Thank you for writing for me! I'm excited, as I've never asked for these fandoms before and all three of them are new to me. :D
In case you're wondering about what I like in general, this is basically what I stick on every Yuletide letter:
Here are some things I like: Humor, drama, snark, romance, smiling in the face of absurdity. (You can probably tell from my requests.) My Smutswap letter
has lots of details on what I like in porn. I find AUs fun, both canon divergence and actual AUs.
My DNWs are pretty simple: Character bashing/needless sideswipes at characters, noncon, omegaverse. Please don't write me dubcon unless both characters 100% secretly want to have sex (I am fussy otherwise, so best to err on the side of caution).
I like porn! I like gen! I like shippy fic and holding hands! I like longfic and shortfic! I basically love all these characters and will probably be delighted if you like them as much as I do. A variety of prompts, shippy and not, follow, but feel free to go your own way if something makes you happy.
I love friendship, interdependence, found families, and all the fandoms I nominated. Gentlemen Bastards
Jean Tannen, Locke Lamora
I love these two so much. Wary distrust to iron-strong trust is a serious weakness of mine, and Jean being the size of a tree and also super smart and incredibly loyal is catnip,
especially combined with Locke's classic conman nature. I am super-intrigued by the canon setting, and I love capers and plans gone wrong (including both those that swing back to right and those that just have to be abandoned). I ship them like crazy but am happy with good friendship or brotherly feelings, too.
I would love more pre-canon scenes with their tentative friendship turning less tentative; anything that fills in between the flashbacks in canon would be delightful.
My favorite moments in the book were when plans started going sideways and Locke had to think fast (sometimes successfully, sometimes less so). I would love to see a pre-canon job start to finish! The high-wire act the Gentlemen Bastards engage in is so fun, I wish we'd gotten to see more things go right.
Jean and Locke consoling each other after the end of Book 1 (brotherly consolation, pre-slash, actual porn, any of it).
Also fun: Sex pollen, weird Eldern artifacts that make the characters confess things they maybe don't want to, any and all explorations of magic in a universe that does have magic but not very much.
Please include the rest of the Bastards and any other characters from the first book if they fit the story; I really loved the cast. Please note:
I've only read the first book in the series. I don't mind minor spoilers, but anything too focused on canon events past that might leave me (if you'll pardon the expression) at sea. I would prefer not to have Sabetha in any stories, because I haven't met her properly yet.The LEGO Batman Movie
Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson
The most immediate appeal for me is the crazy humor and the family feelings in the movie. (Did I say I liked found families? I DO.) I love that the movie nodded to so many of the movie and comics variations on Alfred, Dick and Bruce. (I would love to have Alfred and Barbara in any of these stories; I NOTP Bruce/Barbara and kid!Dick/Bruce in pretty much every universe.)
Family game night. Batman's a terrible
Adventures! Some of the best and most ridiculous characters in the rogues' gallery show up in the movie. Catman! Harley! Catwoman! Solving crimes, battling worthy opponents, making reluctant allies, learning what the heck is up with Condiment King.
Teamups with other characters in the DCU (any version). I would have killed for tiny LEGO Apollo and Midnighter but I also would love to see how any/all members of the Justice League deals with Batman with a sidekick and Bat-friends.
Father-son bonding! Paintball. Cooking lessons. Dick tries to teach Bruce trapeze. Did baby!Bruce play polo or something? Will he try to teach Dick? (Is Dick afraid of horses?)
The Trials of Alfred, World's Most Patient Butler, and His Idiot Charges. What happens when Bruce gets tired of lobster Thermidor?Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard
Alex Fierro, Blitzen, Hearthstone, Magnus Chase
The hardest thing I did this Yuletide was narrow down which characters to ask for. I love the whole cast so, so much, especially Magnus, Blitz, Hearth and Alex. I like how tough and stubborn all four of them are, and how it manifests in very, very different ways. It's fine to pick just one character or one couple for this fandom.
I ship Alex/Magnus and Hearth/Blitz like it's my job. (I would prefer NOT to have Alex/Magnus porn because they are still idiot children in my head. They can do whatever they wanted behind closed doors, I just don't wanna watch. Porn for Blitz and Hearth, though, that is extremely RTMI.) Sam and Amir would be more than welcome in any story, as would Otis and Marvin and pretty much anyone else. (I legit almost nominated Otis and Marvin.)
Blitz made Hearth a tanning bed. A tanning bed, okay.
I want The Story of the Tanning Bed. (If you want to write all four characters, Blitz and Hearth telling Magnus and Alex this story, with the inevitable corrections and interruptions, would be a hell of a lot of fun.)
More pre-canon stuff for Blitz and Hearth, full stop. More about the deals Blitz and Hearth struck, especially Hearth's for magic. How does Blitz learn sign language?
Canon-ish adventures are always welcome. Searches for artifacts! Gods being assholes! Weird family trees! (Blitz and Magnus are cousins and I love that.) Split up the usual groups if you want--have Blitzen and Alex working together while Hearth and Magnus are stuck in the wrong realm.
First dates. Double dates. Magnus finally figuring out his confusing mix of emotions about...everything but mostly Alex. I'd love more of Alex and Magnus bonding over being street kids; they haven't had a chance in the first two books. In fact, any kind of hangout fic would be fun, because canon doesn't really have time for that. What's day-to-day business like in the store? Does Alex ever try to teach Magnus pottery? (Is he hopeless? I feel like he's hopeless but I'm open to be proven wrong.)Please note:
I am writing this ahead of the publication of/my reading Book 3, so know in your heart that I know in my heart huge chunks of my headcanons could be Jossed at any time and it doesn't matter. Write to the new canon or stick with Books 1 & 2, it's fine either way. Also, please keep Alex's canon gender intact, thanks.
