[personal profile] wishfulclicking
Hello,

Thank you so much for the story you are going to write for me. I adore all these fandoms in various but equal ways and am looking forward to reading what you write. Below is a list of things I especially like, it is by no means whole, just broad enough in hopes to jumpstart you if you’ve hit a block. Even if what you write is not on this list, it’s not a big deal, this list just skims the surface of some of my absolute favorite tropes. Het, femslash, slash, gen, it is all good to me. Don't stress about this.



Things I Like:

Happy Endings, even if ambiguous at least a chance of hope
Pining
Secret Marriages/Relationships
Time Travel
banter (if applicable to the characters)
earned relationships
Magic woven into non-spectacular settings/modern
wall sex
devoted friendships being pressured but coming through in the end
Alternate Universes where the canon relationships are mapped on a different terrain but still come through
Dark AUs (criminals, everything leading to a bad place but it’s okay because the group/pairing is together)
People with crushes meeting up later on
Unrequited Love leading to the person meeting someone else
Canon Turn AUs - exploring paths not taken with repercussion rippling throughout

Things I’d rather not have in this story:
Noncon/Rape - even if it is in canon please no scenes focused on the act; implied, mentioned is fine
Sanctioned Infidelity - I don’t care if a couple hooks up while one or two are involved with others but I don’t want the cheated on party being painted as villains or deserving to be cheated on
Hard Kink - scat, vore, etc.
BDSM
Wingfic
Deathfic (unless it’s in the canon but no focus on the act itself of the main character dying)
Extreme graphic Underage (nothing below 15 yrs old)

//If a canon includes any of the above of the second section, then don't feel like you have to avoid it. I just would prefer these things not be added to a story if not already present in canon. So if there is cheating involved and the cheated on partner is an actual villain, don't feel like you have to gloss over that.//


7 Days in Hell

Requested Characters: Aaron Williams, Charles Poole, Caspian Wint
Where to find this: HBO Now, HBO Go
Slash (Aaron/Charles, Caspian/Charles), gen

This comedy was one of my favorite pieces of media this year. I loved the tone of comedy running throughout the work, and the performances worked so well. Aaron’s extreme absurdity, Charles's dimness coupled with his malice in the murder attempt, Caspian’s creepiness were some of my favorite parts. I loved the cameos too, so if you wanted to somehow add that to your story, I’d love it as well.

What’ I’d like in this fandom: any focus on the relationship between Charles and Aaron; more instances of Caspian creeping on Charles and how does Charles react to it, even if it is a mostly internal reaction; AU for the ending and what happens after--what if Aaron finally retires and then Charles continues to compete, how does it go when he finally wins it? Charles as an incompetent hitman, or is he only bad at it when he tries to off Aaron? If you are doing AUs that change the setting, I would want the relationship type to carry over---so if they’re movie stars instead of tennis players, Charles is an up and coming star and Aaron is kind of a washed malcontent.

Dear White People

Requested Char: Sam White, Lionel Higgins, Troy Fairbanks, Coco
Where to find this: hulu, amazon prime
Slash (Lionel/Troy), femslash (Coco/Sam), het (Coco/Troy, Sam/Troy), gen

This college satire on race relations at an American Ivy college was so funny. I really liked all the characters and their struggles to determine how they were going to live their life as they dealt with parental expectations, class conflicts, racial identity, and sexual identity and other issues.The satirical tone that managed to pull laughs about serious topics without being too weighted down by them really worked for me.

What I’d like in this fandom: How do the characters go on after the film ends? Does Troy pursue politics only to find that he’s not completely up for it? In some years does he come under a scandal only to have Coco sweep in as a fixer on the political scene? Going to the past, what were Troy and Sam like when they were together? I am not totally opposed to an AU within this fandom but would want the same relationships to carry over.


The Glass Sentence (Mapmakers Series #1)
Requested Characters: Sophia Tims, Theo, Calixta Morris, Burton Morris
Where to find this: google play books, apple books, amazon books, maybe a library
Slash (Theo/Burton), femslash (Sophia/Calixta), het (Theo/Sophia), gen

As much as I enjoy the characters in this--and honestly, I love all the characters I requested for this novel--the worldbuilding is what really made this book stand out for me. The idea of different continents stranded in different ages of time, with different physical characteristics for some of its citizens, is amazing to me and I love how it’s conveyed in the story. As far as the book goes, I loved the adventurous, light tone that wasn’t afraid to touch on heavier issues like grief and class discrimination and ptsd from scientific experimentation.

Things I’d like in this fandom: more pirating adventures with the Morris siblings; Sophia after the events of the book becoming an explorer; Theo joining up with the pirates; Theo staying on with Sophia and her uncle and learning under them and going on explorations. I would like the setting to be vivid in any story written. Any relationship is fine, but would like the underage characters at least aged up to 15 if anything physical is to happen.

What We Do in the Shadows
Requested Characters: Stu, Nick, Teen Vampire Girl #1, Teen Vampire Girl #2
Where to find this: itunes, google, amazon
Slash (Stu/Nick), Femslash (Teen Vampire Girls), Gen

I love this film: the mix of comedy and horror tropes, with a dash of gore and mannered conflict between werewolves and vampires. Even though I have picked these characters, I am completely cool with other characters making an appearance in the background.

What I’d like for this fandom: for the Teen Vampire Girls, I’d love to know how some of their hunts go. What time period are they from? How and where did they meet? Are they together? For Stu and Nick, I love how their friendship transcends the state of undead and even when they fall into ‘warring factions’ when Stu becomes a werewolf. I love how Nick can’t even fathom not having Stu in his life after he gains his undead state. Anything featuring their friendship is good. How do Nick and Stu adjust to their afterlife? Does their relationship shift as the years go on?

OITNB
Requested Characters: Poussey, Soso, Taystee, Vee
Where to find this: Netflix
Femslash (Soso/Poussey), Gen

The new bond formed between Soso and Poussey was one of my favorite things from Season 3 of OITNB. On the whole, I loved seeing Soso from her first entrance last season to her going through the adjustment of realizing that she’s going to come out changed from this experience; and love may be the wrong word, but I appreciated how her depression was shown and her interactions with her outside friends. For Poussey, I liked her reaching out to Soso and her finding other ties beyond her standard group, while still recovering from all the damage Vee wrought in her wake. The Taystee & Poussey friendship is one of my favorite parts of the show

What I’d like in this fandom: any exploration of Poussey and Soso really becoming girlfriends; how does Taystee react to that change? How does Poussey and Soso

Ex Machina
Requested Characters: Ava, Caleb Smith, Nathan Bateman, Kyoko
Where to find this: amazon prime streaming, itunes, google play
Slash (Caleb/Nathan), Femslash (Ava/Kyoko, Ava/OC if needed for the story), Het (Ava/Caleb, Ava/Nathan), Gen

This movie was one of my surprise favorites. I loved the themes of creation, the responsibility of the creator, the line between AI and humanity, the manipulation required for survival. Nathan’s egotism and magnetic presence was fascinating. The dance scene was one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Caleb slowly being pulled in by Ava; and Ava holding her cards to her chest to ensure her freedom.

What I’d like in this fandom: Show the process of Nathan making his creations until he gets to Ava? What happens after the film--does Ava ever free Caleb? If they had gone away together does Caleb eventually betray Ava? How did the dancing start with Nathan and Kyoko? What if Caleb wasn’t an actual human?

(Disregard the DNW of rape/noncon if dealing with Nathan or if the story leads you there. This canon had some dark stuff, so feel free to have that in your story if you go with this fandom.)
