You are amazing. I want to tell you that up front, because you are. 

Please don’t stress about this assignment. Just the fact that you are writing for any of these fandoms in the first place will make me ridiculously happy. Also, I just love gifts in general, so I’ll be chuffed to get a prize of any shape and size. I know this letter is ridiculously long as again I love these fandoms, but don’t let that scare you off. 

If none of the prompts/like list work for you, feel free to ignore them. 

The only thing I do ask is that my No-Thanks list be avoided. 

No Thanks:  
Slave worlds, demon-possession, mind control, prostitution, noncon, dubcon, character death, infidelity, love triangles/jealousy focus (I am far more fond of OT3ing it up), characters de-aged during the story (if you make one of the characters a child, make them “canon” children for that story if that makes sense), A/B/O, gangster/mob, noir settings, amnesia fics, loss of limb/amputations, mpreg, underage, gender swap, teacher/student stories, or focus on drug abuse or alcoholism. Regarding incest – I have exactly two sibling pairings that work there for me and I haven’t requested either fandom for this exchange, so please avoid that. Also, no parent/child pairings. Please no 2nd person or 1st person POVs except for the Innkeeper Chronicle request (enjoyed them in the past - just not in the mood this year for the other fandoms).
  For M-rated fics, for triggering reasons I have to shy away from knife play/blood play/gun play (only in a sexual context – canon level plot/action violence is fine), scat, watersports, rape-as-fantasy-scenes, anal for M/F pairings, and any kind of direct blow in a sexual connotation even including spanking/flogging.

Yes Please:
Post-apocalypse fic, slice of life/domestic fic, epistolary stories, teamfics, found family, crossovers, AUs (particularly coffee shop, Black Jewels trilogy, daemons, steampunk/neo-Victorian, Sentinel/Guide, Old West, and Pacific Rim fusions), outsider POVs, supernatural elements, badass chicks and men who respect/lust after them for it, OT3s, fixit fics to bring back killed off characters, fics where characters have kids and are adorable parents, 5 and 1 style fics.  I’m definitely OK with an M-rating, and for smutty fics, I particularly love dirty talk, a clear top ordering their bottom around, hair-pulling, restraint i.e.: ropes/shibari/handcuffs/holding partner down, wall sex, shower sex, cramped vehicular sex, biting/marking (without major blood being drawn), mate bonds, “OMG we didn’t die” sex, and “sharing body heat” leading to sex.

NOTE: I am VERY picky about my slash pairings and usually prefer Het or femmeslash with only a few exceptions which aren’t included in this request. If you are a slasher and not a fan of the pairings suggested, please go the gen route. I know my requests are pretty shippy, but I am ALWAYS good with friend/found family fics.

NOTE ABOUT CROSSOVERS: Since I included it last year and would be on board this year too, I wanted to mention crossovers between any of these fandoms would be awesome if that’s your thing. I think the fandoms below could have some really cool crossover potential, especially with the Innkeeper Chronicles!

 

Northmen: A Viking Saga Asbjorn, Inghean (Single movie)

Tom Hopper pulled me into this teeny tiny fandom (No really – there are 7 fics. SEVEN. And I’ve written half of them LOL) after Black Sails moved him to the top of my fandom boyfriend list. I gotta admit, it’s such a terrible movie objectively, but it totally appeals to my love of questionable action movies.

We get all the Tom Hopper biceps you might hope for in his character (and the lead) Asbjorn, though sadly he never takes the shirt completely off. As the leader of the exiled and shipwrecked Vikings, he’s awesomely competent and has mad chemistry with the one female lead (in the entire film sadly), Inghean. She is a Scottish princess the Vikings kidnap in hopes of ransom only to discover her father prefers to see her dead than pay for her safe return. She also is the source of the one fantasy element in the film: an earth sense that warns her when the group is in danger.

All in all, I just desperately want a post-movie fic with these two. The movie ended so very abruptly, and there was so much more of the story hanging. How do they all survive the long boat? Do they ever find safety? Is it at the Viking encampment they hoped to find? Does Inghean’s earth sense end up more under control or cause people to see her as a witch? Will Inghean and Asbjorn EVER do more than stare at each other longingly? LOL

 

The Innkeeper Chronicles – Ilona Andrews Any (3 books so far)

Ilona Andrews basically owns my readerly soul LOL. I mainlined through everything they’ve written last fall & have devoured every new book that has come out since them. The Innkeeper Chronicles series is definitely my fave though. Really what’s not to love about an intergalactic Bed and Breakfast? I put “any” for character choices because honestly I really love all of the characters in this story, including the inn itself, Gertrude Hunt which DEFINITELY feels like a character all on its own. Just FYI tho, I ship the canon ships, so please no Dina/Arland or Sean/Maude stories if at all possible.

So, prompt/concepts I’m excited about: I’d love to have a 1st POV fic ala the books (though from any character you like – Dina, of course, is always a win as the book’s POV character, but I’m game for a look into anyone’s head!), & I’d like it mostly set in and around Gertrude Hunt since the inn is a delight. Domestic fic in particular would make me super happy here. We always see Dina in a panic, but rarely get those calm moments of life running like normal or even with a guest that ISN’T close to causing an intergalactic incident. Are Arland, Maude, and Helen visiting for a holiday? Have Dina & Sean finally made it official & started bonding Sean to the end? Is Orro in a tizzy? Does Caldenia have a visitor who ISN’T trying to claim a bounty for once? Of course, if you do want to write an actiony fic I’d be happy to read that as well. Seriously run wild – this series just makes me happy in general LOL

Oh! BTW, I would TOTALLY be thrilled to have a crossover with any of the other Ilona Andrews series as long as it’s taking place in the Innkeeper universe. I mean, it’s already canon that Edge verse characters have made it there, but what about a visit from Julie & Derek ala the Kate Daniels books? Or one of Nevada’s sisters & cousins from the Hidden Legacy books? I think that would be a TON of fun for sure. (Hell, now that I think about it – a crossover with any of the other fandoms I’ve requested would also be a blast. This fandom just totally works for crossover fics in general I think!)

 

Kong: Skull Island James Conrad, Mason Weaver (Single movie)

Oh yeah, I shipped it. I shipped it HARD. Honestly, I’ve never quite gotten the appeal of Tom Hiddleston, but oh holy hells this movie convinced me! Conrad and Weaver’s chemistry was fantastic, and I loved how well they worked together. My competency kink was definitely tingling every single scene they had together. I think what I really want is post-movie fic for this one. Do they drift apart and find their way back to each other during another strange creature related incident? Do they join Monarch & get read into the Godzilla insanity? Just give me these two confident badasses together facing the world after learning that it was so much bigger in some places than they ever knew.

 

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword The Mage (Single movie)

I both loved and hated this movie. Most of it was so right up my alley I could hardly stand it, but I have to admit I was disappointed by the way ladies were fridged right & left, and that The Mage didn’t even merit a name. So, I want her story. Who is she really? I thought her to be Nimue, but I know some people see her as Guinevere. Could she be Morgana? I want to know who she is and why she risked so much for Arthur, especially if Merlin was dead and gone. Hell, who even was Merlin to her? Just a leader of her people or more? Feel free to ship her if you like! I’m game for Mage/Arthur or even Mage/Maggie or Mage & one of the brothel girls. Femmeslash, as always, is definitely welcome. I’m game for the rest of the cast making appearances too, but she should be the focus. Just give me awesome Mage fic. That’s all I ask.

 Dear Black Sails Exchange Writer,

I love you. That is pretty much it. Please don’t stress about this fic – if it’s with one of the pairings/trio below, I’m going to love it. Plain and simple. And hey, if none of the prompts/like list work for you, feel free to ignore them. 

The only thing I do ask is that my No-Thanks list be avoided. 

No thanks: Slave worlds, demon-possession, mind control, prostitution, noncon, dubcon, character death, infidelity, love triangles/jealousy focus (I am far more fond of OT3ing it up), characters de-aged during the story (if you make one of the characters a child, make them “canon” children for that story if that makes sense), A/B/O, gangster/mob, noir settings, amnesia fics, loss of limb/amputations, mpreg, underage, gender swap, teacher/student stories, or focus on drug abuse or alcoholism.

Yes Please: Post-apocalypse fic, slice of life/domestic fic, epistolary stories, teamfics, found family, crossovers/AUs/fusions (particularly coffee shop, Black Jewels trilogy, daemons, steampunk/neo-Victorian, Pern/dragonrider, Sentinel/Guide, Old West, and Pacific Rim), outsider POVs, supernatural elements, badass chicks and men who respect/lust after them for it, OT3s, fixit fics to bring back killed off characters, fics where characters have kids and are adorable parents, 5 and 1 style fics, and the “huddled together for warmth” and “stranded together alone” tropes.

I’m definitely OK with an M-rating, and for smutty fics, I particularly love dirty talk, a clear top ordering their bottom around, hair-pulling, restraint i.e.: ropes/shibari/handcuffs/holding partner down, wall sex, shower sex, cramped vehicular sex, biting/marking (without major blood being drawn), mate bonds, “OMG we didn’t die” sex, and “sharing body heat” leading to sex.

 

1.      relationship: Abigail Ashe/Billy Bones

Let’s be honest, if you decided to write for this pairing, then you probably are already on this little rowboat of a ship with me and don’t need my spiel about these two in particular. So how about some prompts instead? I’m thrilled I actually have some to offer – usually I just babble and hope my writer is inspired lol.

-AU where Billy really is someone she might have known back in England. Bookish Abigail keeps buying journals & stationary at the same printer’s shop for reasons, and society ends up scandalized when the daughter of a governor forms an attachment to the son of a Leveler.

-Billy courting Abigail be in in an AU in England or in Nassau. Is he good at it? Is he rubbish at it? Is he so painfully adorable that we (and Abigail) don’t care either way?

-Modern AU firefighter!Billy. I’ll admit I’ve written a fill for this prompt before, but I just don’t think there can be enough of it LOL.

-Abigail climbing Billy like a tree because smut is always acceptable.

 

2.      relationship: Abigail Ashe/Charles Vane

Raised a gentlewoman but clearly a little bloodthirsty and less intimidated by pirates than she should be Abigail just GETS ME. Her response to Vane of “Good” will never fail to be delightfully chilling, and I can see that steel in her definitely catching Charles’s attention. Without Eleanor there to blind him with their tumultuous history and sexual attention, I can see that bit of intrigued growing into a grudging respect and later into attraction. However you get them back in the same location, whether the crew finds Abigail during the sacking of Charles Town and takes her with them on the ship or if she finds her way to Nassau due to her reputation being ‘ruined’ in the eyes of society – I’m really not picky on the details. I just want to see these two together. Also pirate!Abigail would definitely be something I’d enjoy for this pairing for sure!

 

3.      relationship: Billy Bones/Charles Vane

Competency kink for the win here. I’m still not over the fact that, as Anne says, “A lot of men done a lot of stupid shit to hear Charles Vane call them proper pirate” while Billy only had to be himself to earn that respect and regard.

While I’d love anything with these two, canon AUs in particular could have so much potential: whether it’s Billy taking Charles’ offer to join his crew after Charles Town or even Billy managing to save Charles from hanging after all – creating instead of a martyr for the cause, a legend: the pirate who was hanged and survived it (since he was dangling there a while, I could easily see Billy & Jacob & company starting a riot to get to him before he strangles completely maybe).

 

4.      relationship: Abigail Ashe/Billy Bones/Charles Vane

And I doubt anyone who knows me is surprised by this – but my answer to any ships where I can see multiple pairings/connections of the same few folks is, of course, to just trio them all together! And hey Black Sails is a canon threesomes fandom so I think adding another OT3 just makes it even better, don’t you? No specific details for this one, though I do have one prompt I’ve been craving forever.

-The Walking Dead AU. I have no idea why that specific scenario sounds so fun for this trio; it just does. All other characters as survivors definitely welcome just as long as these three are the chore of the story.

 

5.      relationship: James Flint/Madi

“A woman who shares his love of books” – le sigh!

First off, I will say that I do headcanon James as bisexual as opposed to only gay, so please feel free to go the smutty route with these two if you wish – I am fully on board with that. Otherwise, I just heart their final respect so so much, and I want all of Madi following in Miranda and Thomas’s footsteps to seduce James with fiction. Literary love stories (be they epistolary or otherwise) for the win!

I’m also a little intrigued with the fact that for all John was constantly harping on how much he trusted James and was his friend to Madi, it is only after his influence is removed that Madi finally starts to respect James on his own. It can be argued that they were merely mourning together, but there was a connection there that happened so so quickly that part of me wonders if John wasn’t subconsciously dropping details or hints in order to convince Madi not to trust James all along prior to his ‘death.’ We know Silver can be selfish in love, and I wonder if he was being selfish with keeping the two people he loved from loving each other (and thereby possibly losing his position as ‘most important’ with both of them) without realizing/acknowledging it. That perspective could be a very interesting one to play with as James and Madi grow closer together.
