KANAYA: sparkle party sparkle party

(text version: Kanaya gets her high-fashion superfreak on with somebody who's too busy O_Oing to appreciate it)
nan: ([hs] Dave - clearly the coolest kid)

[personal profile] nan 2012-04-16 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Karkat's got the magic moirail touch. Gamzee considers this as he watched Karkat pap another troll down. Whether Karkat knows he's there or not is up to you. :3

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Dragon Age: Origins, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Grimm, Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, Star Ocean: The Second Story, Terranova.

Characters and ships I want to work with: I listed most of my characters in pairings, but I am also happy write fic simply featuring those characters with little to no romantic involvement.
DAO: Alistair/Zevran.
FF7: Any combination of the following characters. Elena, Reeve, Reno, Rude, Tseng, Rufus, Tifa.
FF8: Irvine/Zell, Quistis/Selphie, Seifer/Ellone, Fujin/Ellone.
Grimm: Juliette/Nick, Nick/Hank, Nick/Monroe.
HMAP: Wizard/Julius.
SO2: Dias/Ashton, Gyoro and Ururun, Leon.
Terranova: Taylor/Wash, Lucas/Skye, Josh/Kara, Reynolds/Maddy, Zoe.

Themes and genres I like: I have a major thing for slice-of-life prompts, especially those that might feature scenes we don’t get to see in the original canon. I like characters musing on relationships and thoughts of other characters. I love fluff, tender moments, and sibling-like rivalry. I really like porn too, both kinky and not. Ten-minute AUs are a lot of fun as well, as are alternate setting fics.

Anything I'd prefer not to write: Explicit non-con.

Anything else I want to add: I like wordy prompts with a few different plot elements that I can combine and take apart to suit my mood; disjointed ideas and impressions really tend to spark me. If there's a phrase or song lyric that goes well with the plot elements presented, I really like that too.

I like gen and canon pairings, so: Juliette and/or Hank finding out! You know, that awkward bedroom conversation after the last episode. Or Juliette bonding with the helpful beavers. A vet's approach to a creature's health problem (maybe including Rosalee).

[personal profile] sirvalkyrie 2012-04-18 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
I would really, really love you if you would write Tifa/Rude, Tifa/Reeve or Tifa/Elena. Your choice. I love Tifa but I am more interested in shipping her with people other than Cloud. Here are some totally optional ideas: spy infiltrating AVALANCHE, post DoC, competitive date at the Gold Saucer, snow boarding together, Kingdom Hearts au, putting them in a Harvest Moon like setting, a fantasy AU.

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Andromeda, Gargoyles, Alice in Wonderland, Robotech: New Gen, ST: Deep Space Nine, Robotech: Macross Saga, Space Cases, and the current run of Marvel Comics X-Factor Investigatons.
Characters and ships I want to work with: Harper/Rommie, Brooklyn/anyone, for Alice, just about anyone. Rook/Rand (Robotech: new Gen) Max/Miriya (Robotech: Macross Saga) Julian/Ezri, Worf/Dax, Kira/anyone,
Kira and Sisko-friendship for X-Factor: Ric/Star, Jamie/Layla
Themes and genres I like: introspection, ensembles, character studies, episode tags, action/adventure, I like other Treks but Deep Space Nine is by far my favorite and the one I most familiar with...
Anything I'd prefer not to write:incest, non-con, fluff
Anything else I want to add:
ar: Kira Nerys from DS9 flopped in a chair. (ds9 - kira hmmmm)

[personal profile] ar 2012-04-16 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
asfdjskldafjda, I love Julian/Ezri. ♥ They both have pretty contentious relationships with their families--a story where they talk about that, or where they avoid talking about that (awkward holidays of some sort or another?), or where one or both of them just thinks about it, would be really interesting!

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Homestuck and Journey

Characters and ships I want to work with: Ancestors and seatrolls, I love them all! All the world loves a Strider, me included. And the entire cast of Journey--the entire thing, seriously, pilgrims and ancestors and clothcreatures and landscapes included.

Themes and genres I like: AUs, absurdism, xeno (whether sexual or otherwise), cannibalism, power tripping all OVER the place, and cheap lulzy shenanigans. (the above are primarily for Homestuck, but if you want me to play with those themes using Journey I'm all in! In the case of Journey specifically, I love me some mood pieces and friends-helping-friends. But challenge me if you want to, seriously.)

Anything I'd prefer not to write: Plotty or longform pieces. I get all twitchy trying to keep Homestuck canon straight and before too long I just say SCREW IT NOW EVERYONE'S IN A BAND OR WHATEVER. I have difficulty working with John, Jake, and/or Jane.

Anything else I want to add: Songfic prompts leave me cold. I like a little detail and a full sentence or two.

[personal profile] tg 2012-04-17 02:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Welp, this was one of my old fic-promptly things, but I'd love to see someone write something for it. Over here! You can add anyone in the cast into the fray as well, now that the cast has expanded exponentially.
ar: Kay and Julius Eaton reading a manuscript. (ds9 - farverse reading)

[personal profile] ar 2012-04-16 06:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Locke & Key, Slings & Arrows, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Star Trek: DS9 episode 6x13 "Far Beyond the Stars" (the 50s AU), Star Trek (TOS)
Characters and ships I want to work with:
Locke & Key: Kinsey/Scot, Scot, Kinsey, Bode, Duncan/Brian, Duncan, Miranda. I love all the characters and all the time periods, but these are probably my favourites.
Slings & Arrows: Ellen/Geoffrey, Jack/Kate, Frank/Cyril, any of those characters on their own
Star Trek: Deep Space 9: Ezri Dax, maybe Julian/Ezri
Far Beyond the Stars: Kay Eaton/Julius Eaton
TOS: Amanda Grayson, Sarek, Amanda/Sarek, Spock in the context of his immediate family
Themes and genres I like: Domestic adventures, babies and next-gen, slice-of-life, cheerful things, horror.
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Explicit stories, story elements that wouldn't probably be described as "vanilla," gore.
Anything else I want to add: I prefer premise-based prompts, though I can do word/phrase prompts for very short things and especially shippy things. I've been trying to practice writing horror in general, though it's not something I have a lot of experience with.
nan: ([hs] Tavros - hey hey hey)

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: HOMESTUCK
Characters and ships I want to work with: JOHN. John <3 OR <> any dude (that is not Dad). Gamzee<3Tavros. Gamzee<>Karkat.
Themes and genres I like: TENTACLES. Oh, wait. I like FEELINGS, romance, kink, hurt/comfort, WAFF, happy endings, twisted fluff.
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Anything too dark and angsty, meta, sincerely mean characters.
Anything else I want to add: Sentence or two of scenario is better than a word or phrase, funky AUs are definitely welcome. :3

Doomed Dave (the one that TZ tried to convince the other Dave to kill) and Doomed John (the one Vriska had that "d8" with) meet up in a dream bubble. Go from there. (Dave making "ironic" comments about John's home decor. John attempting to use Dave's sweet equipment, over Dave's objections. Practically ANYTHING involving their wonderful suits. Sparring. Really, just about anything awesome would go here and you can pair them or not as you please. XD)

Fandoms I'm excited about right now:
Dragon Age (2 but also Origins), FF13/FF13-2, Inception, Persona 4, Utena (anime, movie)

Characters and ships I want to work with:
Dragon Age: F!Hawke/F, Aveline/Isabela, M!Hawke/anyone, Fenris/Anders, Zevran/Taliesen/Rinna. Any characters except Sebastian and Alistair really. (My Hawkes all tend to be mages by default; speak up if you need anything different!)
FF13/13-2: Hope/Lightning (either game), Fang/Lightning, Jihl/Lightning, Hope/Noel. Any character except Mog and Chocolina.
Inception: Arthur/Dom, Dom/Saito, any of the cast in general.
Persona 4: MC/everyone, Chie/Yukiko, Rise/Naoto.
Utena: The entire cast/the entire cast, plus the car.

Themes and genres I like:
Philosophy, introspection, relationships (romantic and otherwise), alternate ways of life/states of existence, situations without absolute good or evil.

Anything I'd prefer not to write:
Scat/watersports.

Anything else I want to add:
Flexible (or clearly stated) prompts are great for me! I have a habit of coming at things from different angles just to see how they'll turn out, so if you really want a specific genre, it's ok to say so rather than leave it up to chance.
sirvalkyrie: (Default)

[personal profile] sirvalkyrie 2012-04-18 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
Would you mind writing a Chie/Yukiko? I'd love something where they are fighting in alternate outfits as opposed to their default ones. Why they are in the costumes are up to you. They could be going to a con, someone could have tricked them, it could be the new armor from the shop, etc.
rabbitprint: (Default)

[personal profile] rabbitprint 2012-04-19 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
I'd be up for that! What a fun idea to work with, thank you! :D
electric_butterfly: Fighting Marcello (Marcello--the fighter)

[personal profile] electric_butterfly 2012-04-17 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Dragon Quest VIII(the biggest "hot one" for now), Tales of the Abyss, Star Ocean: The Second Story, Persona 2, Persona 4, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Saga Frontier
Characters and ships I want to work with: DQ8: Angelo, "Eight"(I call him Hyacinth), Marcello (I ship all three)
Tales of the Abyss: Jade/Guy
Star Ocean: The Second Story--Claude/Ashton, Claude/Dias, Gabriel/Lucifer/Dr. Lantis(any combo of these 3)
Persona 2: Jun/Tatsuya, Maya/Ulala
Persona 4: Yukiko/Chie, MC(I call him "Esprit")/Yosuke
Elder Scrolls: Skyrim: Dovakihn, Ulfric, Galmar (not necessarily shipped though)
Saga Frontier: Leonard B. Edison, Fuse, Rastaban, Ildon
Themes and genres I like: Erotica(explicit or not), "Creative Anachronism"(not so much AU, but something like Saiyuki where there' s a jeep in an area where there technically shouldn't be one. Something like that.), hurt/comfort, character studies, relationships, emotional intensity, dialogue/banter, scenery/imagery, some angst, philosophy, knowledge, and stream of conciousness.
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Non Con, Domestic Abuse, Mind Control, School/Alternate Reality AUs.
Anything else I want to add: Any DQ8 ones would most likely prompt a response. As for actual prompts, I am a complete SUCKER for song lyrics, quotes, and lovely dialogue. I tend to prefer detailed prompts over shorter ones.
gingayellow: (melody)

[personal profile] gingayellow 2012-04-17 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Akibaranger, to a certain extent Kamen Rider Fourze, in theory Go-Busters and Power Rangers Samurai
Characters and ships I want to work with: Power Rangers (any), Super Sentai (any), Foruze, bits of OOO
Themes and genres I like: h/c, AUs, ultimately I'm quite flexible when it comes to what I write?
Anything I'd prefer not to write: non con, blood/gore, scat, water works
Anything else I want to add: Like I said, I'm only slightly familiar with OOO, so I may not be the person you want to write a post-series epic. :(
sirvalkyrie: (Default)

[personal profile] sirvalkyrie 2012-04-18 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
Um... What about a fic with some excuse for the Akibarangers to dress up as magical girls?
terajk: Death the Kid, fists in the air and grinning triumphantly. TEXT: WIN (death the kid: win!)

[personal profile] terajk 2012-04-17 04:08 am (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Soul Eater, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
Characters and ships I want to work with:
Soul Eater: Death the Kid & or /Maka, (Kid & anyone, really) Maka/Tsubaki,
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2: any of the ladies (Underling included)
Themes and genres I like: banter! cuddles! fluff! people who bump into each other's insecurities just by existing, but are still friends
Anything I'd prefer not to write: anything explicit (it would be terrible)
Anything else I want to add: Polyamory welcome & encouraged :D
slippy: (khr] Close enough.)

[personal profile] slippy 2012-04-17 09:23 am (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Gunnerkrigg Court, Homestuck, Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Characters and ships I want to work with:
GC: Annie, Kat, Gamma, Zimmy, Jack (and I could ship them in all sorts of combinations), Ysengrin, Jones/Dr Disaster, Robot/Shadow, Surma/Anthony, also I have a weird thing where Paz/Zimmy interests me.
Homestuck: Trolls, kids, and robots; particularly Gamzee, Nepeta, Sollux, and Eridan. I like most canon pairings a lot, I'm especially on a kick with Snowman/Slick, but feel free to throw non-canon or crack pairings at me.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn: Chrome, I-Pin, Haru, Kyoko (which could also involve various ships), the Simon, Varia, Millefiore, Futa, Lambo, Gokudera/Tsuna, Reborn/Bianchi, Shitt P/Gokudera
Themes and genres I like: family/friend-group shenanigans, unexpected quadrants for Homestuck, ... crossovers ... world-building, romance, gen, silliness taken seriously
Anything I'd prefer not to write: angst, gruesome violence, not so good with Jake, John, Kanaya, or Dave.
Anything else I want to add: Possibly leave more than one prompt so I can pick one. I'd prefer stuff riffs off canon scenarios/plot points rather than more generalised settings or total AUs.
darlingfox: ([khr] aliens united)

[personal profile] darlingfox 2012-04-18 05:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, someone else who likes Gokudera/Shitt P! I like them as characters and as a pairing, so pretty much anything about them would be fantastic. Maybe they'll go shopping together or talk about aliens and other weird things, or maybe about something more serious. They both have rather dark pasts, after all.
slippy: (khr] Illuminating realisation number one)

[personal profile] slippy 2012-04-18 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I love 'em! And you know, I think I've got to try them serious. It's the most obvious thing I've never thought of.
tg: (john> heir of breath.)

[personal profile] tg 2012-04-17 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Homestuck.
Characters and ships I want to work with: Dave. Also, Davesprite and Rose. Also, John and Terezi. And Jade, possibly inclusive of Jadesprite, though she's harder for me. Basically, you can take any combination of the above and pair 'em or threesome 'em, I'd write it, but I have difficulty with other characters.
Themes and genres I like: Gen, Sburb meta. I'm good with angst, slice of life, inane pesterlogs (especially this). Also cool with AU stuff, and if you know any of my current AUs (ASPIRING SUPERHEROES!, Svurtual Jungle, Everyone Dies, Cockpitstuck) and would like something set in one of those worlds, that'd be cool too.
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Porn. Hurt/comfort. As I'm still trying to figure out where I stand on writing other characters, please stick to the ones above.
Anything else I want to add: I write Dave as not particularly sexually initiative or particularly sexual, for that matter, but he's willing to concede certain things for his partners. Scenarios are cool; one word prompts are also cool. Just note that one words/lyrics/whatever else will more likely get you character study or drabble-length ficlets.
slippy: (star trek xi] think of something sweeter)

[personal profile] slippy 2012-04-17 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
How about something that focuses on Jade losing her Prospit-visions of the future, and what it means for living everyday life?
tg: (dave&jade> don't rock the boat.)

[personal profile] tg 2012-04-18 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
I'm so on this. Would you mind if it winds up a little Dave/Jade?
slippy: (Balls the size of your head!)

[personal profile] slippy 2012-04-18 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
Not at all. They're cuties and I love them together.
byakko: ([Cheetah] Across the Savanha)

I'd love to see you approach Rose and Dave getting used to each other on the meteor.

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Hetalia, Pretty Cure, Madoka Magica, Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori, Wild ARMS series, Persona 3 & 4
Characters and ships I want to work with: I want to work with fxm, fxf, or gen.
Themes and genres I like: Something fun, interesting, crossovers, crackships, fantasy, occult, au
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Just for Hetalia I will not write BelarusxRussia, JapanxTaiwan, ChinaxTaiwan. Other AsianxAsian ships and SovietxSoeviet ships I am a bit iffy but might be willing to try. I don't write explicit sex.
Anything else I want to add: Um.... hi?
kalloway: (GS Captain Coffee - 'This!')

[personal profile] kalloway 2012-04-19 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
Fandoms I'm excited about right now: Gundam SEED/Destiny/Astray, Kiddy Grade, Saint Seiya

Characters and ships I want to work with:
Gundam SEED: ANYONE
Kiddy Grade: Anyone
Saint Seiya: I'll do best with the five main Bronzes, and the Golds probably minus Shaka. Also, Julian + Marina because I've just re-read and been kinda squee. Please feel free to ask and we can chat about characters?

Themes and genres I like: Giant robots, musing on giant robots, interpersonal relationships, trios, needing to adjust to life after a big adventure/war/etc. Stories where characters who were killed off either get brought back or luckily survived somehow(sometimes a little worse for wear). I like happy endings. M/M, M/F, F/F, and combinations are all A-OK.

Anything I'd prefer not to write: dub/noncon, infidelity, and in all honesty you'd probably get mixed-to-poor results asking for anything kinkier than fuzzy handcuffs. Prompts from songs/songfics.

Anything else I want to add: While I don't need an entire paragraph, I prefer prompts that are more than a word or two.
silverr: abstract art of pink and purple swirls on a black background (LC shion)

[personal profile] silverr 2012-04-19 09:37 am (UTC)(link)
*pounce*

Shion and Dohko! Any canon, any time, doing anything. ~ But being that it's those two, the "adjusting to the aftermath" of the Holy War shown in Lost Canvas - being the only two survivors of the war, and having duties that keep them apart - that's the painfully shining core of this OTP for me.

*melts of happiness simply from the prospect of being able to ASK for these two from someone who knows who they are*.

I would also adore genfic with Shion and Hakurei, or Shion and Yuzuriha. ~ Even Shion just repairing Cloths would make me burble happily. ~ Or old Shion taking care of Mu. Or ...

(And yes, these prompts are stolen from my Dear Yuletide Author letter, but only because I've been doing Yuletide on and off since 2005 and I ask for Shion and Dohko every time and it's never been the choice.)

Fandoms I'm excited about right now: FFXII, Engrenages/Spiral.
Characters and ships I want to work with: FFXII: (Zecht/)Drace/Bergan, Drace/Gabranth, the other Judges, and Larsa. I love all the characters, but these are my favourites. Engrenages: Berthaud/Karlsson. <3 I will also happily write gen with any of the lead characters, especially Berthaud and her team.
Themes and genres I like: Friendship, gen, introspection/character study, happy endings.
Anything I'd prefer not to write: Abuse, non-con.
Anything else I want to add: I do best with prompts that ask me to expand on or fill in gaps in canon, or AUs that are canon "what-ifs", not alternate settings. One-word prompts are fine, but they will probably only get you a short (100-200 words) ficlet. If you want a longer fic, give me a couple of sentences to work with. :)
