Dear GenEx Creator,

Hello and welcome! I am thrilled to see we are a match! Truth be told, I am most interested in seeing the work *you* wish to create! These prompts are only coming from one mind, so you may be cooking up something unique I hadn't thought of yet! :) All prompts here are suggestions only, and you may borrow as little or as much as you wish! <3 You can use this letter any way you wish: use the Likes Directory for some nice and quick prompts (I like a lot of things! XD ), the fandoms section for some prompts, or go with your own ideas! :D You're also free to browse through old letters (assume the most current DNWs on here as the most correct ones.) As you can see, there is much for you to dig around in here, and I hope something inspires you to take back amongst your treasures. Hope you enjoy, as I am certain I will have tremendous joy in seeing your creation! :)
Love & good wishes - [ profile] Scribe_of_Mirrormere

Do Not Wants

Fandoms List

If you don't see something listed, assume a neutral stance, but I'm happy to answer any questions via the mod! :) The Likes Directory is huge (also it's copy/pasted so you're likely to see romance-type likes as well as gen likes scattered around here.) I figured this will be a nice place to refer to if you were curious about anything or wish to pick from as prompts. :D <3

💀 Do Not Wants:
− trauma to the eye
− incest of any sort (parent/child, sibling, cousin, etc)
− infidelity/disloyalty between couples (doesn't count for hero/villain type or dark ships)
− mpreg • a/b/o • underage • scat
− please no bashing of religion, spirituality, or any kind of deity
− please no character bashing and no vilifying ANY of my requested characters/ships, unless it is appropriate in-universe (example would be, via the published Silm, Caranthir making his scorn of the dwarves' "ugliness" publicly known)
− Grey Area: rape/assault/abuse in pairings not marked as a dark ship. I wouldn't mind them dealing with the aftermath of a loved one having been hurt by a villain or an evil OC, though. See my Dark Loves section for more details on this since this DNW is a grey area. :)
− Unrelenting bleakness or depressing main villain wins scenarios (think Sauron takes back the Ring AU, Zarkon takes over Earth and enslaves/kills all of Team Voltron, etc.) It's fine if a story begins with a villain having the upper hand but ends on a happier note. For any requested villains I DO WANT: power struggle/powerplay/truce. :) But, see the Dark Loves section for more info on this!
− unrequested pairings (see each fandom for more info)

🎭 General Info and Likes:
❉ POVs :: third person (subjective, omnipresent, etc) • first person especially for sarcastic characters since I love seeing things from their POV, or an unreliable narrator, or someone with a very interesting/unique ideology and worldview • second person only for darker stories if you're trying to be elusive, or for interactive fiction.

🌈 Elements I Love:
❉ Very human, fallible, and flawed characters are incredibly endearing :: genuinely kind and caring characters who make mistakes and unwittingly hurt someone they love deeply • kind and tranquil characters getting enraged into action, especially by a cruel injustice • stoic characters cracking around the edges, driven by a love they did not previously believe in or thought they could experience • leader characters questioning themselves • carefree wanderlust characters finding themselves in one cage after another, living during a time when they cannot be free (war, tension, etc) • jokesters who are suffering and sad inside • characters with issues and internal (and external) struggles as high as the Burj Khalifa but still manage to be decent to others • characters learning from their regrets
❉ Awesome things :: deep unwavering loyalty and commitment • witty banter (or just bantering) • a sense of togetherness in the couple (aka, both are into each other) • very close bonds/profoundness • eucatastrophe • a sense of fairy tale magic/wonder in either the work itself or the narrative or the characters (etc; hopeful endings, quiet moments, dramatic moments, silly moments, etc) • that moment when character realizes they are loved/are shown love • one character rising above the challenge to help someone they love
❉ Interpersonal :: unconventional relationships • dynamic and unusual relationships that aren't the most peaceful or perfect but are nonetheless profoundly close • realistic relationships where they make mistakes but they try to patch things up. Sense of poignancy in their affection • prefer established relationships over pining/unrequited, but getting together isn't bad or a character reflecting on how things were before they got together • please no cheesy love confessions, but I do adore couples getting together in the most unconventional ways (kissing as a confession when things get dangerous, a character being suddenly nonchalant about their true feelings just as when death seems certain, growing so slowly closer together that both have no idea how they got from being just friends to being all married and making love in bed, etc)
❉ Professions :: characters at their craft • learning a skill or improving on what they already know • characters at work, their relationship to their job and how they feel about it • other characters' reaction to profession (such as amazement at character's art/magic/music/science discovery/fighting skill/etc.)
❉ ASMR :: and all sleep-related and relaxation tropes • one character doing something to trigger an ASMR response from a character • scratching sound of pencil or pen on paper • carding fingers through hair • whispering softly into the other's ear • character listening to another's breathing in their ear or the sound of their heart beating • sound of fabric/running hand over clothes • watching someone paint or doing something slowly or contemplatively that the other (the beholder) just watches and relaxes as they do so • repeated stim-like movements that are relaxing such as comfortingly rubbing hand over arm while soothing a person • (note: many examples of ASMR triggers on YouTube)
❉ Hairplay :: carding fingers through hair • shampooing/washing • brushing, braiding, styling • one character giving another a haircut (perhaps just a trim! :'D ) • can tie in to ASMR above • bonus beard-play for any dwarves in your work
❉ Ghosts :: characters telling ghost stories • encounter with ghosts • a story that explores a ghost story from a local legend or folklore • a character sudden experiences something from the POV of a ghost • stranger things such as where an entire building or object feels very much alive and haunted as though it has gone sentient • ghost trains (especially if a character somehow board one. I'll leave it to you to figure out how that happens! :D )
❉ Music :: work inspired by a song or any part of the lyrics (but not as a songfic please) • characters dancing to a song • characters singing
❉ Spirituality :: characters, individually or as a couple or group and the subjects of spirituality: experiencing God/Spirit, praying, discussing theological and/or philosophical topics, etc. (This can be general spirituality, or something that is centric to what the characters believe in, or you are free to write based on your own faith and beliefs. I am open to all three.)
❉ Those moments in life :: seeing the beauty of a terrible storm or the bitterness of a battle won • pyrrhic victories • hard battles with a strong sense of accomplishment and purpose afterwards • bright beautiful dawns after the darkest nights • difficult decisions, or situations with no easy solutions • having to make very painful choices • self sacrifice (not necessarily in the sense of death; can be anything), especially if it is appreciated
❉ Neat things :: philosophical contemplations, philosophical debates with other characters • dreams and characters keeping a dreamlog or a log of their travels
❉ Original characters :: many if not all of my canons can always do with more original characters so do not hesitate to include them • same goes for textual ghosts and unnamed canon characters

🌏 Worldbuilding Elements I Like:
❉ Settings :: abandoned places • old ruins, temples, places which only legends remember • revisiting a place mentioned only in passing in canon or a place glossed over previously • mountains (climbing them or going inside) • by rivers and other bodies of water • outer space • tombs and graveyards • quiet suburban neighborhoods where there's more happening than what meets the eye • places beyond the canon's map • places the characters have not yet visited • factories & other industrial spaces (especially abandoned ones) • regions unexplored • locations accessible only through special means (such as dreams, by taking hallucinogens, etc.)
❉ Fauna & Flora :: plant life that's unique to the area or something new and fictional • I love mythical creatures (especially dragons and phoenixes) or anything unique to the culture or region you're writing
❉ Linguistics :: Exploration of languages in any conlang • inventing slang, proverbs, sayings that can't be fully translatable into English but somehow "fit" the soul of its speakers, poems, a mini lexicon, expanding on a language for the purpose of a fanwork, etc. • For existing languages, if the setting is not set during modern times, a look into language shifts.
❉ Cultures of the people :: real world cultures or fictional cultures • love seeing customs, rituals (weddings, funerals, coming-of-age, preparing for battle and post-battle, etc), religion, holidays, culinary, traditions, proverbs, teaching us a saying or something that this particular culture believes in is always a treat • expanding on fictional cultures in a work, especially those we do not get to see much of (such as Avari tribes, dwarves, Númenor.)
❉ Attentions to details such as: jewelry and the history behind each piece, the making or reason why a tapestry was made, the history of someone's possession in a canon (such as Lalli's rifle, the blue brooch of the Cardolan woman mentioned in passing in Lord of the Rings, etc.)
❉ Unexplained Mysteries, Things Before Their Time, & Bizarre Coincidences :: I love mysterious things that are unexplained or artifacts that appear to be well before their time. To give some examples of what I mean (not necessarily from fandoms I've requested, but to give an idea) :
    ✧ Middle Earth :: Something similar to The Antikythera mechanism, which has been described as the world's first computer. An artifact so carefully pieced together and so mathematically precise and perfect that, to us in the modern age, it just seems impossible for someone of that time to have been able to pull it off.
    ✧ Stand Still Stay Silent :: Something that harkens to the story of when the HIV epidemic first broke out. The first medications for the virus had already been manufactured--years before the epidemic, but were shelved due to the researchers not having previously found any use for them. Perhaps the cure of the Rash Disease exists in some discarded modern medicine today, tucked away in the to-be-discarded pile of a pharmaceutical research facility because it had failed trials in, say, curing adult acne? What would be the odds of ever running across it again, and even more, getting the idea to use it?
    ✧ A Redtail's Dream :: Signs of a spiritual realm and more beyond this sphere of life. Can manifest as the Nazca lines, or something that would initiate a conversation of whether it was just coincidence that everyone in the village of Hokanniemi happened to have the same dream or if there was something more at hand. Something that would leave people wondering and debating and questioning themselves for years to come.
❉ Challenging Elements You May Enjoy Writing :: for those topics that have no definite answers but may be intriguing to explore nonetheless. I love getting philosophical and deeper into these topics, so if you are up to it, feel free to look at some of these suggestions:
    ✧ Magic/Religion & Science Working Together :: as someone who is both spiritual/a practicing witch and someone who works in a science profession, it does worry me that these elements are often regarded as mutually exclusive. So, I'd like to see something that manages to overlap the two sides, such as a mage using their understanding of a scientific field in being able to cast a stronger spell, or a researcher needing to tap into some areas that cannot be quantified through science and how they can manage that while exploring and studying more of the world around them. AKA: Can't put God in a test tube, but can't take God out of the equation either.
    ✧ Nature & Technology can coexist and can be mutually beneficial :: I love nature (and the cosmos!) but also have a very optimistic view of technology. I believe they can, when approached right, benefit us (such as in medicine) and may even help to benefit the world around us. As much as I adore Tolkien, I do not share his views on technology, so I would like to see something where technological advancements can be seen as beneficial. Not to turn a blind eye to the damages the industrial revolution has brought; pollution is a problem and I will not mind seeing that also addressed, but I believe it was something for us as a species to learn from rather than to see our creations and advancements as something to be ashamed of.
    ✧ Identity of the Self & Sharing The World With Others :: something that gets a little philosophical into what it means to belong to X group (could be a Race (as in Elves, Dwarves, etc), or race/nationality/ethnicity/a particular culture, gender, gender living during this era/living in this region/etc, orientation, orientation living during this era/living in this region/etc). As such I should add that exploring topics of racism/ethnocentrism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, misogyny, discrimination on basis of religion, etc will not matter here so long as the work has a general sympathetic tone towards the marginalized group. I would be interested in seeing works like that, especially canons with fictional groups or settings not in our time. And also, the idea of sharing this world with others. :)

🖤Dark Loves: if you wish to write something darker:
❉ Rape/Non-con :: in a situation where the culprit is someone who's a known villain in the work (such as Sauron, Morgoth, Zarkon) or an OC (such as a wicked kade.) Please, not someone who the character knows and trusts in canon (one exception: I like scenarios where the canon good character is either mind-possessed and made to threaten a loved one (and maybe loved one trying to break the spell?), or if the two parties are forced by a third party in order to survive (Fuck or Die scenarios, etc.) I find those scenarios really interesting to explore.) Work can focus on the trauma itself and/or the aftermath. Rape & Recovery, rape & rescue, revenge, etc. It's all good.
❉ Torture :: Not explicitly super-graphic (such as paragraphs spent on how the blood drips from the gashing wounds, etc), but something where the character is put under turmoil and stress is fine especially if they come out of the torment later on/defeat the villain/conflict. I do love seeing my faves getting a few scars, especially warrior types. Some graphic violence and description is great! :D
❉ Good vs. Evil :: I love everything that falls under this, especially good guys really getting under pressure • hero/villain locked in battle • battles ending in truces are awesome • Power play, power struggle • mind fuckery/hero and villain trying to play mind games or manipulate one another • villains engaging in dark seductions • heroes realizing a darker side to them • Villains growing complicated affection for a hostage or victim • I also love some darker What If AUs if villains get the upper hand in some way, although I prefer any "big bad" (such as Sauron or Zarkon) not to eventually win forever and kill everyone off. But if one person dies in battle/self-sacrifice, that's more than fine with me. I love crying. :3
❉ Hurt/comfort :: already talked about above, but for darker tones, whump and "get" scenarios • character having to witness someone they love and care for being brutalized by villains (in canon or OCs), the worse the situation the better (example: character tied up while the other is raped) • one partner being forced to hurt another lest both's lives are endangered • eating disorders (and disordered eating); refusal to eat • self-harm • victim of harassment/bullying/prejudice
❉ Illnesses :: could be physical or mental/emotional • depression/suicide ideation/PTSD/etc • substance abuse and addiction • character trying to make do while having a terminal illness/running out of time • painful and slow recovery journeys from an illness • I'm placing this here because it can be very emotionally draining for artist and audience, but I do appreciate stories that explore such heavy topics.
❉ Death :: Exploration of canon character death • non-canon character death is fine if it serves the purpose of the work and was not used as a form of character bashing • exploration of the aftermath of a canon death • character coming to terms with death and their mortality • works taking place in the afterlife are fine, as are near death experiences
❉ Horror :: expanding on and exploring any of the darker aspects of the canon • characters caught in a horrific situations they cannot get out of • something that plays with their mind (mind games, feeling trapped, something truly wicked and sinister under the surface), especially if it pushes them over the edge (think: the Tell-Tale Heart type of narrative) • brushes against the supernatural of the unpleasant sort • anything else that falls under here.

🎨 Art-Related Things I Love:
❉ Forms :: traditional • digital • mixed media and "cut-out" styles (this is a good example of what I mean :) ) • comics • single illustrations • scenery landscapes with my requested characters as part of the scene
❉ Black and white mediums :: charcoal • crosshatching • pencil shading • inked (especially when it plays on shadows and crosshatching) • black/white/shades of grey digital colors or paints
❉ Color mediums :: digital art • acrylics • watercolors • oils • colored pencils • Copic markers • screen printing/vector art
❉ Color schemes :: earth tones (greens/blues/browns) • jewel tones • sepia/shades of browns/neutrals • faded/washed out • vibrant • iridescent hues and "cosmic" themes • things that invoke autumn vibes • black/white/greys (look above) • pastel hues • monochromatic schemes or mixing complementary colors with or without black/white
❉ Subjects/settings :: forests • dreamscapes or dreams • homes or marketplace or someplace the character(s) loves • downtown or in their village • someplace new for the character and/or abandoned locations (see Worldbuilding : Settings for more details) •
❉ Clothing and appearance :: focus on folds in dresses, coats, tunics, etc • details around collars, hems, cuffs, especially if there are cultural meaning or significance to these areas of the clothing • elaborate hairstyles and clothing • drawing inspirations from ancient civilizations (any of your choice)
❉ Accessories :: Vibrant jewelry and details on each gem • interesting details of any advertisements or posters behind character • elaborately designed weapons (I hate violence but I love designs of swords and guns, and the more fantastical the designs, the better!)
❉ Bibliophilia :: character(s) reading/poring through the pages of a book (bonus if two doing it together) • sitting on top of a stack of books • thick ancient tomes • entire shelves of books • books on the nightstand • character reading a book in the bathtub (with more books scattered nearby (inspired by)) • massive libraries (either as backdrop of your artwork or as part of a comic story) • feel free to include other beautiful trinkets with these such as scrolls (rolled and/or unrolled), globes, desk lamps, bookmarks, mugs of tea or coffee, etc.
❉ Themes :: the four seasons • opposites (such as highlighting polar elements of two characters and making a piece out of that) • sun and moon • day and night • earth and cosmos/heavens • the five elements (earth, air/wind, fire, water, spirit) • seven chakras • the zodiac (Western, Chinese, etc)
❉ Inspired Piece :: I love artworks that derive some inspiration from other famous works such as Mucha or Dali. But just using your own style is equally welcome! :) Also if we match on a medium that has a set art style, you can either use the artist's style or your own is both fine. <3
❉ Character interactions :: if a romantic couple: kisses (on the mouth, on the cheek, on top of hand), affectionate poses/interactions, cuddles/snuggling together, looking into each other's eyes) • platonic or romantic: conversing, one with head on the other's shoulder, watching the stars, hand-holding, lying side by side on the ground, dancing • a group of characters: sitting around a campfire (bonus for at least one playing a musical instrument), marching along some interesting scenery, displaying great teamwork (bonus if my pairings are also included doing something alongside each other), epic poses before or after a battle
❉ Color palettes :: a few I like (but you're free to choose your own!) ::
❉ Prompts :: I tried my best to provide prompts for each fandom that can also work well for art. If not, look to this list as I would really love these as detailed here. Feel free to look at the rest of my general likes as well as my smut likes and my general list of prompts! :) I would love even if you took one element from a fandom request and made art of it (example: if I request something set during a dream, to get artwork of the character in that dreamworld.)

Voltron: Legendary Defender

Requesting: Fic, Art

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ In terms of background pairings if you wish to include them in, I ship anything and everything for Voltron so you cannot go wrong there. :) If you'd like to include some mention of a pairing or some background ongoings, it's all fine by me!
+ You are totally free to write Pidge as a trans girl, and same goes with all the other characters. :)
+ Season 3 will arrive during the creating period of this exchange, so if some event in Season 3 inspires you, PLEASE do work based on that even if it means ignoring any of my prompts. Very much likely I will be screaming and begging for those things! :D

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add to the listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Allura & Coran & Hunk & Keith & Lance & Pidge & Shiro
Team Voltron. <3 Our one big giant happy family. I want to see them on their day off, since they need some much-needed rest. Also, gapfillers are a great love of mine. Give me something that happened while the team were all together. Silly, fun times together (another visit to the Mall? Castle broke down and needs repairs? Diplomatic visitations to another planet, Galra drama optional? All pitching in to beat a video game? And of course the mice can join in too! Times when they all had to give it their own and then some in order to succeed against their enemy, perhaps escaping to within an inch of their lives.

Hunk & Keith & Lance & Pidge & Shiro
I just love seeing how close these five got in such a short amount of time. Anything from the above could apply to here too. The five relaxing, getting to know one another. Training sessions (the mind-meld making a reappearance? Fighting the gladiator?) Or, their lives before leaving Earth, or returning to Earth but after having saved the universe and defeated Zarkon. Perhaps a future fic that sees them all still together, still strong? I do enjoy the idea of them being platonic soulmates of one another if you like to play with this AU.

Allura & Haggar
Being forced to work together, or Haggar capturing Allura for reasons (interrogation, needing her magic for an exceptionally powerful robeast), only for the two to find some common ground. Or, Allura seeking to somehow change Haggar or at least understand what her deal is, why she betrayed a whole planet and the lives of their entire race. A Stockholm Syndrome/Lima Syndrome type scenario here would be great.

Haggar & Lotor
We haven't seen what the canon interactions will be like so it's all pure speculation here, but what is their working relationship? Is Haggar Lotor's mother (and how does that impact things?) I personally have enjoyed some of the fanarts and headcanons from Tumblr of Haggar and Lotor being snarky at each other, if you'd like to go the humor route here. Or wait and see how Season 3 inspires you! :)

Keith & Thace
So many What Ifs and AUs here, such as: what if Thace somehow survived the explosion, and after finding him, the Team Voltron and Blade of Marmora nurse him back to health? Thace taking Keith under his wing, sparring and fight training, or an AU where Keith was raised with the Blade of Marmora (and if you're a fan of the Thace being Keith's dad AU, you can play with that here too.)

Matt Holt & Pidge
Growing up together, Katie sneaking in and reading all of Matt's astronomy books that were a grade or two above her level. Matt telling stories to Katie about space, or the two geeking out on all the Sci-Fi shows (they were totally Trekkies, don't you think so?), or playing video games. Eventual reunion or whatever else Season 3 inspires you! Platonic Soulmate AUs and Twin headcanon scenarios are also great! :)

Matt Holt & Pidge & Shiro
Matt told Shiro stories about himself and Katie while they were on their mission to Kerberos, and while they were both trying to keep their sanity as Galra prisoners. Now meeting Pidge himself, Shiro takes on a brotherly role for her. Also, as Season 3 teased, Shiro finding and fighting alongside Matt and helping him reunite with his sister, or whatever else the new season inspires. :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Matt sharing a photo of himself and his sister to Shiro while they're prisoners of Galra
❧ Matt and Katie as kids, teens, studying together, embracing when they reunite.
❧ Matt and Katie shredding one another at a video game!
❧ Matt, Pidge, and Shiro on the day when they're all reunited.
❧ The Paladins all doing something together: stargazing, sleeping/sleeping while huddled together. Same can go if you add in Allura and Coran
❧ Paladins and/or the entire team in some alien attire to match the customs of the people they are to meet for some diplomacy visit.
❧ A healing Thace being visited by Keith, or Thace and Keith sparring, or Thace holding and studying Keith's blade as if he's about to tell Keith something about his past.
❧ Haggar and Allura going head to head in battle, or Allura having Haggar at her knees.
❧ Anything comparing/contrasting them (since I think they are meant to be foils on the show.)
❧ Anything with Lotor and Haggar, even if it's child Lotor with mother Haggar. I will leave Season 3 to inspire you in any way. :)

The Silmarillion

Requesting: Fic, Art

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ Background ships if you're interested in including them: all the canon ships, all the blacksmithes in ANY combination, Elemmírë/Lalwen, Ilmarë/Thuringwethil, Míriel/Indis, Míriel/Finwë/Indis, Aredhel/OFC, Aredhel & OFCs, Aredhel & Lalwen, Elemmírë & Maglor, Amras/Nellas, Maglor/Gildor, Meleth/Rôg, Mablung/Beleg, Amras/Nellas, Tindómiel/Meril-i-Turinqi, Númenórean Queens/OFCs, Númenórean Queens & OFCs, and Gereth/Evranin.
+ I love giving some lesser written about cultures a voice, so I tend to gravitate towards requesting them. Different POVs and narratives are neat, but you don't have to write those. <3
+ On that same vein, if a character's ethnicity (Noldo, Sinda, etc) is not specified in the text, I often like to headcanon them as Moriquendi/Avari. Just like how fandom liked to go with Elemmírë and Gereth as women, I like to go with ethnically ambiguous characters as Moriquendi! :D But, again, you don't need to go with that! <3
+ I love works that tap into the complex and opposing views, since it's so rich in Tolkien's work. I like the Noldor and the Sindar and the Vanyar and the Avari. I like both sides of every argument and I find that to be a major draw of the Silm (...except for Morgoth and Sauron.) I really love the complexity of Tolkien's work and I love some of the sense of historical bias I get from the reading. I love seeing that explored, hence my kink for different POV fics and taking events and trying to see them in another light!

Do Not Wants:
− Please do not write an evil Eöl (or anyone evil for that matter, unless if they are Morgoth, Sauron, Thuringwethil, etc.)

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Anairë & Írimë
Since Írimë is Fingolfin's best friend and sister, how does she relate to Anairë? Did she like her? What of having her niece named after her? A headcanon if you wish to use: Anairë & Írimë are two very different kinds of dancers. One dances to tell a story. Another dances for Eru. How do they relate? Have they ever clashed? Another idea: meeting and becoming friends, and Írimë wondering if she could play matchmaker between her BFF of a brother and her new friend?

Írimë & Fingolfin
Being each other's best friends, rough-housing, perhaps teaming up to tease/make fun of Fëanor (all in good fun, I'm sure!), sticking together through thick and thin, or the day Írimë learned of her brother's death. Did she rule his people, or a part of them, in his place?

Maglor & Nerdanel
Nerdanel honing her son's skills in any way (does she build him an instrument? Commission a luthier?) Or child Maglor accompaning his mother anywhere or while she's doing anything and then writing a song about it, as adorably cute as a child elven song is likely to be. Or something which illustrates how Maglor is considered to be more in temperament like his mother than father.

Aredhel & Fingolfin
Mostly interested in Aredhel as a small child, perhaps asking Fingolfin to train her to fight with a sword. Little elfling stabbing her big papa with a wooden sword-type soft fics? Or Fingolfin arguing with Aredhel who is hesitant about going to Gondolin, finding Mithrim more free but her father fearing her safety?

Aredhel & Fingon
Big brother Fingon having to put up with the little monster baby sister known as Aredhel. All the times she's crashed in on him while he's trying to spend time with friends or flirting with the woman who would become his wife. Or perhaps on a more serious note, the two keeping each other's morales up while crossing the Helcaraxë, or what their final conversation was like before Aredhel went to Gondolin.

Aredhel & Írimë
Doing activities together (horseback riding, archery, dancing, Lalwen pulling Aredhel away after she gets too drunk and begins brawling with the men at parties.) For something more somber, Lalwen being the one to push Aredhel away to Gondolin, convincing her it will be safer.

Aredhel & Original Female Character(s)
The OFC can be anyone Aredhel knew: a childhood friend in Valinor (or a whole posse of friends she caused trouble with) from birth till surviving Helcaraxë (perhaps she loses this friend in the process via death or parting at Alqualondë?), friend(s) she made when she first entered Endor, in Gondolin, or friends with Avarin women or dwarf women in Nan Elmoth. Can be anything your heart is set on.

Eöl & Mablung
Eöl forging weapons for Mablung either upon request or as a gift to him. I do headcanon them as brothers (Mablung being older) if you like to play with that too: anything from Mablung being teasing towards Eöl or the two supporting one another if another in the family was taken by the Dark Foe. Avarin/Moriquendi culture exploration would be great too (again, my personal headcanon points to Kinn-lai, but you are free to go wherever your inspiration takes you!)

Beleg Cúthalion & Mablung & Nellas
A chance to explore Moriquendi/Doriath culture and customs, perhaps a summer/early autumn festivity. Nellas adopting Beleg and Mablung as her older brothers of sorts (does she have siblings of her own?) or perhaps they are all individually from different tribes (Sindar/Avarin/Nandor, etc?) Something nice and a break from all the tragedy of the Silm and Children of Húrin would be excellent.

Celebrimbor & Maglor
After finding his father too overbearing, Celebrimbor finds comfort in his uncle. Or perhaps, Maglor writing and playing a song for Celebrimbor when he was still a small child (may combine with Curufin & Maglor below.)

Curufin & Maglor
Maglor singing for Curufin at any age of his life, while he was a baby to Maglor writing and singing a special song for Curufin on his wedding day. Curufin making an instrument for Maglor, either after one had broken or Curufin thinks of something new and unique. Or the two getting into a little heated debate over a linguistic discussion. Perhaps the two comforting one another after their father's death?

Elemmírë & Maglor
Teacher and student, especially with Maglor as a very young elf. Young Maglor being awe-struck as he listens to Elemmírë play in halls and trying to emulate her, or music sessions and (if you go with the headcanon of Elemmírë and Lalwen being married), perhaps joining in with his aunt and Elemmírë on an outing.

Elwing & Idril Celebrindal
I love the contrast between the two elves here. One is a young girl who was driven out of her home, barely alive, losing her entire family and most of her kingdom, all for a jewel she understood nothing about. Another is a woman who had seen much, much more (too much), possibly being old enough to remember the events of Alqualondë, and knew the story of the jewels all too well. Anything about their meeting in Sirion would make me most pleased, such as Idril taking Elwing under her wing, being the one to tell her the tale of the Silmarils and the Noldor's bloodstained history with it. Anything. It's an interaction I'm very much fascinated to see.

Elwing & Nimloth of Doriath
I was almost tempted not to request this because of the inevitable heartbreak, but damn is this also a scenario I'd love to see: happier days in Tol Galen, Nimloth teaching Elwing about her heritage, moving to Doriath, or their final moments before Elwing was taken away from her mother. A look at the trust Nimloth had for Evranin the nurse would be welcome too. I almost want to DNW any scene of Elwing witnessing her mother die but...oh, you know what? If your heart goes in that direction: Make me cry. :')

Haleth & Guardswomen
Although Haleth never had any heirs, did she ever pass down anything to another lady in her tribe, such as fighting skills or words of wisdom? Or, could she perhaps have adopted someone and trained her to become her Guardswoman? I'm always a fan of a warrior-trained-from-a-young-age type characters. Or perhaps they were friends since they were young, and this guardswoman is also a confidant of sorts?

Aerin & Morwen Eledhwen
Those two working together would be much, much loved, especially being able to sneak things behind Brodda's back and so on. Perhaps they even work together to help someone else in the House who was under immediate threat of execution or something? Or, a moment where either character passes guidance and/or comfort to the other?

Tindómiel & Any Female Character
Tindómiel fascinates me as does early times Númenor. Perhaps this OC is a friend, a Númenórean who is pleased that their lives are longer than other men, but Tindómiel feels differently (considering that her father was considered an elf.) Perhaps longing to be somehow counted back as among them/Tindómiel interacting with a female elf visiting from Tol Eressëa. Or perhaps the elf in question is Meril herself? Or Tindómiel with her mother. Anything here about the new land of Númenor, about traditions starting and bringing old traditions from the old lands (and wondering where they had come from.) This is, really, a wide playing field so anything goes, really. :)

Silmariën & Isilmë
The sisters who lost the Sceptre to their younger brother. I love sister relationships, so anything goes here. You can either explore more about the politics of this injustice (or how ultimately it benefited them, as this led to the line of Lords of Andúnië.) Did Isilmë have her own line, even if it was not mentioned in Tolkien's notes? Or, just a story of the sisters doing anything together at any point of their lives would be much loved.

Lindórië & Inzilbêth
Lindórië's name, "rising beauty" makes me think it's in reference to her remaining a Faithful even as others have turned against the Elves and Valar. So Lindórië instilling her beliefs in her daughter Inzilbêth and how it affected her. Did it inspire Inzilbêth when she was very young, or did Inzilbêth initially resist, perhaps too indoctrinated under the thinking of Númenor at the time?

Tar-Míriel & Original Handmaiden Character
Was this OC someone Inzilbêth hired, perhaps? Or a childhood friend of Tar-Míriel? A Faithful in disguise? In whichever way you pick, I foresee so much emotional support for Tar-Míriel as she undergoes one of the most testing times of her life. Perhaps this OC protects her or somehow alters her fate, as unlikely as it seems. Or a twist, and Tar-Míriel saves her instead.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Anairë and Lalwen dancing, or Lalwen taking Anairë to meet one Fingolfin.
❧ Lalwen and Fingolfin fencing, as kids, or at point of their lives during the Silm giving one another support.

❧ Practicing archery together or enjoying the scenery of their new home in Mithrim, or the final goodbye before Aredhel leaves for Gondolin.
❧ Anything would be loved for Aredhel and OFCs: as kids making a mess of things, or Aredhel meeting dwarves/Avarin women in Nan Elmoth.
❧ Older brother!Mablung giving Eöl a noogie, or Eöl presenting Mablung with a new sword.
❧ Beleg, Mablung, and Nellas enjoying the sunlight poking through gaps in the leaves overhead, or the three during a Doriath summer/autumn festival.

❧ Aerin and Morwen comforting one another, or Morwen showing Aerin to keeping her head up high as se goes to speak with Brodda.
❧ Tindómiel staring longingly at the elf women, or perhaps a happier moment with friends, or taking a stroll around their garden with her mother
❧ The sisters Silmariën and Isilmë observing the Silver Sceptre for the first time (perhaps the Ring of Barahir makes an appearance as well.)
❧ Lindórië teaching Inzilbêth of her beliefs, perhaps with a window nearby giving view of a darkening Valinor.
❧ Handmaiden trying to rescue Tar-Míriel, or vice versa, or pulling up her veil to reveal some piece of garment or jewelry she's wearing that marks her as a Faithful to Tar-Míriel.

+ In general, the more dwarves the merrier! Welcome to all OCs elf and dwarf (and Dale residents too!)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add to my above listed DNWs.

Bifur & Bofur & Bombur
I can never tire from the family dynamics of Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur. Please, tell me all of the stories of them when they were children! Tell me of Bifur and Bofur's mischievous grins when they saw Bombur kissing the lady who was to become his wife for the first time! Tell me of their struggles, their failures, and how they got themselves out of it. Show me how they got each others' backs, or how they fared after they moved to Erebor. Absolutely anything will please me! :D

Bifur & Bofur & Bombur & Fíli & Kíli
Same as above, but now with Fíli and Kíli! When did the two families meet? (Feel free to combine this with the book canon, where they are high guards of Thorin.) I like to imagine the five are all carefree together, so: drinking buddies! Enjoying time off together after hours, or just goofing off during the Quest.

Bifur & Kíli
One of my favorite platonic pairings. :) Young Kíli finding Bifur at his toy workshops and making it a habit to watch Bifur at work, or an older Kíli giving toymaking a try. Or silly (mis)adventures during the Quest, such as why Bifur kept handing Kíli odd things (like that skull.) Perhaps Bifur had an (utterly hilarious) idea on what to use them. Or, Bifur passing on some wisdom during any point before or during the Quest.

Galadriel & Tauriel
The pyrrhic victory of the Battle of Five Armies had left Tauriel feeling broken-hearted that the young princes of Erebor would not be able to live to see it for themselves. She travels west to clear her mind and finds solace in the ancient but very wise Lady Galadriel who has seen and experienced many heartbreaks and deaths. Or alternatively, Tauriel was badly injured during the Battle, and wakes up to Galadriel healing her.

Lírien & Gwaeren & Ammeril
The three women collaborating on preparing the serving hall for upcoming guests, the three during time off and how they behavior outside of their jobs. Perhaps some other mishaps and misadventures other than the time the dwarves got rowdy and had a food fight? Since these are all background characters, I have some headcanons if you are interested in snooping around and borrowing anything for your own creation here. :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Lírien, Gwaeren, Ammeril preparing and rehearsing for the dinner that the dwarves eventually crashed. Or, the poor dears after the whole mess.
❧ Galadriel healing Tauriel's wounds, or the two walking together in Lothlórien
❧ Young Kíli watching in awe as Bifur works on a new toy
❧ Montage of the Quest of all the strange stuff Bifur handed off to Kíli for safe-keeping.
❧ Bifur, Bombur, and Bofur having a friendly family argument (whatever dwarves consider friendly)
❧ Drinking night with the dwarves Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Fíli, and Kíli! The five boozing and singing and maybe a pissed off Thorin stomping away somewhere?

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add to my above listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Arwen's Daughter & Arwen's Daughter
Do they get along? Is one studious and one a knight, or a romantic or...? (personalities mesh well or do they clash?) Roughhousing, going on adventures (or even if it's just a trip to the markets), showing support to the other sister. Feel free to include multiple sisters.

Galadriel & Arwen Undómiel & Celebrían
Celebrían visiting Galadriel and presenting her with baby Arwen, or any happy point in history where mother and daughter visited grandmother (or when Galadriel traveled to Rivendell.) Anything set in the late summer and early autumn is especially nice. I just want to see these three generations all together and happy. :) Perhaps Galadriel telling them about Eärwen, and how do Celebrían and Arwen react to the idea of Valinor?

Celeborn & Elladan & Elrohir
The twins resided with Celeborn after Elrond and Galadriel sailed west, so their relationship with their grandfather afterwards? Was Celeborn sad as Lothlórien dissolved after Galadriel left? What of the twins deciding whether to choose the path of Men or Elves, and did it impact their relationship with Celeborn? Did they ever convince Celeborn to sail West? Or take him to see Middle-earth one more time before sailing West?

Éowyn & Ioreth
Éowyn struggling with depression even after the War and finding solace in Ioreth's wisdom and kindness (would rather there not be a quick fix to her depression, but a "seeing a light emerge at the end of the tunnel" type feeling is very much loved.) Also her developing passion for wanting to grow things perhaps stemming from helping Ioreth prepare salves and herbs for the sick patients.

Ioreth & Ioreth's Sister(s)
A look at Ioreth and her sisters in the past. Any story here of her childhood would be excellent. Anything about Imloth Melui, if the sisters live there now, if they are still there, and if they visit Ioreth at some point after the War of the Ring. Are they just as talkative as her?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Ioreth with her sisters in the past, or them sitting together in the guest room laughing and reminiscing about the past.
❧ Éowyn standing beside Ioreth and learning about healing from her, perhaps helping her prepare a salve.
❧ Elladan and Elrohir traveling with Celeborn, or standing with him below the dying leaves of Lothlórien.
❧ A proud Celebrían presenting Galadriel a baby Arwen. Or, the happy trio (with a child Arwen) on a picnic outing.
❧ Arwen's daughters at the markets, or one teasing the other over her hobby (be it books or fencing or weaving or whatever else you decide. :) )

Requesting: Fic, Art

Do Not Wants:
− No unrequested pairings (best to stick with my requests and for background, what was listed/mentioned above)
− Nothing with Onni or Ukko-Pekka, please

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Reynir Árnason & Lalli Hotakainen & Tuuri Hotakainen
Lalli running to Reynir for help after Tuuri's suicide, traveling to Tuonela to retrieve her via Reynir's boat. Perhaps the two embracing Tuuri in the afterlife as they try to convince her to return. Working together to find some means to bring her back. Or for a happier fic (or if you wish to ignore page 750), the three of them on any adventure in the Silent World that does not involve trolls. Perhaps exploring an old library or building with many interesting artifacts of the Old World (a museum? Gallery? Ikea?), and Tuuri is fascinated with everything while Lalli looks for things and Reynir is drawn to something in particular.

Reynir Árnason & Lalli Hotakainen
Magic training, learning one another's languages, combining their magic during a battle to defeat a common enemy. A lot of the prompts above could also apply here, such as working together to get Tuuri back to the world of living if you wish to accept Page 750. Post canon: visiting one another in their respective country, gift giving, summertime/autumn in Iceland/Finland.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Tuuri, Reynir, and Lalli all sitting together and chilling in the tank! Perhaps sharing some of Mikkel's cookies while Lalli is holding the bag and NOT looking amused.
❧ Lalli riding on Reynir's dreamworld boat and glancing out while Reynir is sailing it (perhaps they're on their way to getting Tuuri? :D )
❧ Lalli visiting and trying to adjust to/reacting to Reynir's Dream Haven. Or Reynir and Lalli in Lalli's Haven.
❧ Reynir and Lalli both embracing Tuuri

+ Crossovers/SSSS Year 0 scenarios are always nice. :)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add to my above listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Åsa Skärsholm & Riikka Skärsholm & Anssi Skärsholm
Aunt-niece-nephew bonding, sea faring, telling tales. Perhaps Riikka and Anssi making something for their aunt on her birthday, or Åsa making something special for them in return. SSSS Year 0 scenario where her boat becomes their escape route from the Rash? How was life out on the river (I think it was a river?) Did they sail away from the location? Perhaps ran into the Hotakainen-Hollola family?

Jonna Kuikka & Joona Kuikka
The two being the beloved imps that they are, getting into trouble with their father (as kids or as teens or even adults), learning how to bake by their father, making a meal for their family, giving one another support during a hard time (perhaps one remembers something from the events of aRTD and it comes back as a nightmare? Or set in future if something happens to their dad, or a fic exploring why their mother is absent.) Or in lighter news, one twin giving the other support on their wedding day.

Jonna Kuikka & Oona Kuikka
Jonna defended the hell out of her little evil sister in Chapter 4. What if she's also secretly and willingly enabling the monster to be more, well, monstrous? Just because we know the twins love a good prank and Jonna loves setting Oona on people. More exploration of this dangerous dynamic duo over the years. I love sisters in fiction so anything here. Perhaps an older Oona starts to have eyes for Tuomi? How does Jonna react to that?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Åsa, Riikka, and Anssi on Åsa's boat enjoying the view
❧ Jonna and Joona at the bakery or taking a break or doing something they shouldn't be doing (whatever that is, I'll leave that up to you)
❧ Jonna enabling Oona's terrible ways, or the two sisters 5, 10, or 15, etc years down the line.
❧ Any of the combinations above in an SSSS Year 0 setting: awakening with magical powers, fighting off any trolls, etc.

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:

+ Family members were mentioned and if you wish to include them, you may! :)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing else to add to the above listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Veeti Harmonsuo & Jáhko Hammarström
How the two young ones have met and managed to be friends, considering the stark contrast in personalities, and where you think this adventure may be taking them, or set it at a different point in time, after both become veterans in interacting with spirits (or at least Veeti; Jáhko seems to be well acquainted with them!) Exploration is a big bonus if you'd like to look into that.

Definitely feel free to explore and expand on this world. If you like crossovers and fusions, a little something with SSSS would be not bad as well.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Jáhko and Veeti on the day they first met
❧ Veeti reading while Jáhko tries to get his attention
❧ Making a snowman together that looks like one of the spirits they've seen on their journey
❧ Autumn time in the forest/with the trolls

I apologize in advance for how scarce the prompts are, due to the canon itself not having given us much to go on yet. So assume a VERY enthusiastic "anything goes!" attached to all of them! :D

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ Background ships if you wish to include them: Veeti/Jaakko, Sakari/Mika, Ieva/Sulo, Ieva/OFC, all canon ships.
+ I'm very flexible with this canon since it's on hiatus and it'll be going off real soon, so I'm sure you'll be getting new ideas after sign ups close. You're more than free to go with those! :)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add to the above listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Jaakko Ilmarinen & Sulo Rautio
Jaakko learning forging and being a blacksmith, getting chastised if he goofed up, how he got stuck being the one to always cleaning up Rautiola, perhaps Sulo ranting about finding Jaakko's hair strands littering the place?

Mika Lapintaival & Veeti Harmonsuo
Their time spent before entering Kalevala intrigues me. More exploration of their developing friendship, or their reunion after Mika returns to Rautiola.

Sakari Harmonsuo & Mika Lapintaival & Ieva Pajari
This one is short, I apologize, but it does rely so much on the what if and what we may or may not get to see when the comics go off hiatus, so: their adventure going up north. Absolutely anything.

Sakari Harmonsuo & Veeti Harmonsuo & Jaakko Ilmarinen & Mika Lapintaival
I've seen official artwork of the four of them together, so anything here, what you think this means about their future as four individuals teaming up and working together.

Sampsa & Siiri & Kalevi & Martti Harmonsuo
We've met two of the four, unless if I missed something, so a look at the four siblings, their lives growing up, their magical abilities, how their related to one another, and so on. And perhaps, if you are interested, a comparison to how similar or different they are to the current generation (Sakari, Inkeri, Veeti, and Harri.)

Sampsa Harmonsuo & Veeti Harmonsuo
The first time Veeti called for Sampsa and the first time he answered, the relationship between uncle and nephew. Perhaps Sampsa helping Veeti to heal during his mage coma? Absolutely anything here.

Siiri Harmonsuo & Inkeri Harmonsuo
It's said that Inkeri looks up to her mother, so I'd love to see more of that in any way. Other ideas: Inkeri learning about the family history, learning magic from Siiri or joining her during one of the missions to the swamp.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Siiri training Inkeri in magic or the two going to the swamp together
❧ Sampsa, Siiri, Martti, and Kalevi listening to tales of their family line.
❧ Sampsa showing himself for the first time to Veeti, or the two roaming the spirit world together
❧ Sakari, Mika, Veeti, and Jaakko all decked out in some Final Fantasy-ish getup (or whatever the artist has in store for us!)
❧ Jaakko trying to cut corners at his cleaning job but getting caught anyway, or him and Sulo working together at the forge
❧ Mika and Veeti reuniting after Mika's trip northward, or sailing on the Tuonela boat together.
❧ Sakari, Mika, and Ieva at any point in their travels up north, perhaps taking a break?

+ In terms of background ships: any is fine, including bringing up 2D/Paula (although 2D might not want to remember Paula.)
+ The entire team having an adventure together (and staying together)
+ Cameos from characters of current or previous Phases would be nice too, if you can work that in.

Do Not Wants:
− I won't complain if you write a ship with Noodle but would prefer it's not explicit and not set before Phase 4. Thanks! :)

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Murdoc & 2D & Noodle & Russel
More adventures and more hijinks, really. I would particularly like something that expands on their time in the Spirit House. It's such a weird place. What did it DO to these people? Especially considering the last scene. Coming out of there all happy and wanting a big breakfast? I would have busted out screaming, myself!

But if you're feeling nostalgic, anything from their earlier Phases would be equally welcome. I mean, remember Noodle in Phase 1? :') What if Paula makes a reappearance in Phase 4? What else did these four get up to? Where are they headed from here?

Art-specific requests:
❧ A montage of them during all of the Phases, watching how they've changed as they got older
❧ Noodle being an axe fact, everyone in their musical element!
❧ Gorillaz in an SSSS fusion where we see them battle with some ghosts and trolls (considering Del and what we've seen in Saturnz Barz, you could make a case for that! They *are* in Year 0!)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing else to add to the above listed DNWs.

Some Prompts or Ideas:

Haggar (Voltron: Legendary Defender) & Ensi Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent)
Perhaps the Galra invaded Earth during Year 90, or Haggar was working alone. Magic battle as Ensi defends what little is left of her home against the invader. Or Haggar sees potential in Ensi and takes an interest in her. Ensi learns about her magical abilities and pretends to be a wicked mage, working under Haggar before slipping under her fingers.

Lúthien (Silmarillion) & Allura (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
The Castle of Lions has visited Earth before, long, long time before any of the current Paladins were born. Young Allura and Lúthien were especially good friends, full of beauty and magic and hope (assuming this is where Altean's ability to camouflage would come in, although they are pretty elfin to begin with.) Perhaps before Lúthien's death, she agreed to having a hologram copy made of her and uploaded to the Castle. Allura discovers this one day while lonely and missing her old life before the War with the Galra.

Maedhros (Silmarillion) & Reynir Árnason (Stand Still Stay Silent)
We've seen Reynir wake up on a boat in what looks to be the midway between life and death (before being visited by the beast dog, perhaps seeking to be released from life.) Perhaps after coming back to this point in the dreamworld, Reynir finds a tall elf who has been trapped in this painful limbo, unable to bear facing Mandos after his crimes in life. Reynir helps him to part from this world at last. Bonus with some hair braiding involved. :)

Sokka (Avatar: The Last Airbender) & Lance (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
The Castle ends up in a parallel universe and land on the planet where Aang and co exist. Perhaps the team decide to help Aang, Katara, Toph, et al on whatever mission they're on? Lance and Sokka immediately hit it off, congratulating one another on their faces. Cue any other moments where they drive Team Avatar and Team Voltron mad with their newfound friendship! Hunk and Pidge and Toph probably find some of this hilarious. Katara and Allura probably want them dead. Or anything else. Go as wild with this as you'd like. There's bound to be a lot of humor here! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Sokka & Lance congratulating one another or wearing one another's clothes and totally confusing the other team.
❧ Haggar & Ensi magical battle face-off, or Ensi testing magical abilities while Haggar watches on.
❧ Lúthien dancing with a child or young teen Allura during the young days of Arda.
❧ Hologram!Lúthien keeping Allura company during lonely moments.
❧ Reynir braiding Maedhros's hair or sitting beside him and listening to him talk as they sit on the edge of life and death (assuming this is what this place is.)
