Dear Darkest Night 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. 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

For this exchange: some of the freeforms may have a long prompt and some are very short, depending on whether or not they seem to be self-explanatory or are elements that I'd just love to see, or things that have a bit of an idea/longer prompt attached. Again, these are just suggestions I'm tossing up! :) I'm equally thrilled with seeing any of these! (and if you think one prompt might suit a different request better, go right ahead. As you can tell, I'm thirsty for dark stuff in general.)

💀 Do Not Wants:
− trauma to the eye
− incest of any sort (parent/child, sibling, cousin, etc) unless if I've requested it! :D
− infidelity/disloyalty between couples (doesn't count for hero/villain type or dark ships)
− 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 where neither character is a villain. Unless if both are victims where one has been brainwashed or possessed/etc and the other is trying to stop them (or otherwise both are forced into the situation). That's pretty neat! :D
− 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.
❉ More Noncon :: victim not enjoying it if with a rapist or having a hard time climaxing if with another victim • crying during rape, rapist/aggressor exceedingly having the upper hand • humiliating and painful sexual acts for the victim (being forced to suck a too-large dick/dildo/tentacle/etc, forced to swallow semen or having their face and hair covered in the aggressor's fluids • having to take in a large dick/dildo/tentacle/etc without being lubed, etc)
❉ Torture :: Not explicitly super-graphic (such as paragraphs spent on how the blood drips from an infected wound, 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. 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.
❉ Awesome bits :: mind fuckery • victim being dragged on the floor by their hair • just generally a victim being treated as non-human • (conversely, a victim being treated with so much tenderness that it's ten times worse) • victim feeling helpless or cornered • victim being pushed against their limits • hair pulling, face slapping, biting, scratching, drawing blood
❉ Stranger Things :: all things tentacles, aliens, oviposition • being used as an incubator • anything else that falls under here.
❉ Wounds & Blood :: wound fucking • coming into wound • magically cleaning/disinfecting a wound just to do it all over again • bloodplay • blood drinking • victim hemorrhaging • disembowelment
❉ Trauma & Suffering :: Cotard delusion • trauma of the physical, mental, emotional, or psychological kind • PSTD episodes • panic attacks • nightmares • and so on.

🎨 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.)

💋Kink & Smut Things I Like:
❉ My biggest loves in smut :: hand-holding during lovemaking • intense emotions • profound levels of trust • getting a strong sense of how they feel about one another • body positions so the lovers can kiss, hold each other, etc • getting so lost into the sex and the emotions for each other that they're practically melting into one another's arms.
❉ Oral :: cunnilingus, blow jobs (be as general or as detailed in description/depiction as you'd like)
❉ Vaginal :: fingering • penis • stap-on, etc.
❉ Anal :: by penis or strap-on, any position is fine
❉ Bodily fluids (semen, vaginal juices); bodily fluids play • watersports (watching partner pee, holding urine in hand or feel of urine down thighs, etc. Would prefer nothing in mouth, though.)
❉ If the canon involves aliens: alien anatomy is awesome too! :3
❉ Fingering or stroking • stimulation of the clitoris • massaging around the genitals or up the thighs/hips/stomach
❉ Nipple suckling, kissing the breasts, character brushing their nipples against their lover, etc
❉ Body worship :: kissing the neck, breasts, belly, hips, right over the heart, cheeks, the area right below the ears.
❉ Belly kinks :: teasing (gentle tickles), massaging, kissing, keeping hands over belly to keep the person warm (giving the navel some attention and love is fine too)
❉ Genital-genital contact :: tribadism • frottage • grinding of the hips • intercrural sex
❉ Hairplay during foreplay and sex, be it while one partner is performing oral or while they're in a missionary position.
❉ Fully nude, partially clothed, or fully clothed sex is all fine by me.
❉ Bath/shower sex (bonus for hair washing) • body worship • undressing partner • masturbating in front of partner (as a means of developing more trust and intimacy between a couple) • cuddling after sex • gentle/lazy/sleepy sex • naked cuddling • riding partner (either with cock or a strap-on) • sucking fingers of lover (perhaps after they've fingered or stroked them)
❉ Situational :: first times (in general or new sexual act) • sex for warmth • "Thank God we're alive" sex • sex in front of a mirror
❉ Sex in a smithy :: sex inside a smithy with a blacksmith character (location kink) • using objects found in a smithy for kinky fun
❉ Visual delights :: gripping onto the bedsheets • bedsheets twisting around them (or leg) or one of the partners • beautifully flushed faces
❉ Bloodplay in situations where one or more of the characters are vampires, or if they are magic users, magic sex is in play that requires blood, or in non-con situations between villain/victim. (see the Dark Love section for more info on rape/non-con.) Other elements include: using blood in ritualistic sex, blood drinking, smearing blood on lover.
❉ Being held tightly or squeezed during lovemaking • a little bit of rough sex, especially if it's in-character • a little bit of bantering as well (again, if it fits the characters) • a normally-stoic character losing control from the passion
❉ Voice kink :: soft whisperings in lover's ear • the sound of their breathing or moans driving partner closer to climax • breath on their skin or ears

🖤 Fandoms 🖤
Voltron: Legendary Defender
A Redtail's Dream
Stand Still Stay Silent
Year in Hereafter

Artwork by Tsurunel
Voltron: Legendary Defender
Jump to: ShiroShiro with othersTeam VoltronKeith, Keith with others

Requesting: Fic or Art

Where to Find: Available on Netflix or iTunes (may be available elsewhere.) Season 3 coming to Netflix August 4th. I believe it's available in several languages. :)
The series delivers on the dark right away what with the abduction of a crew of space explorers, and a few scenes later we meet one of them again looking much haggard, worn, and with a bionic arm. With said character dealing with PSTD throughout the season and every character getting their fair share of injury (explosion in the castle! Fighting with Haggar the witch! Knowledge or Death sequence! Mental anguish! Hallucinations! Getting attacked by food goo!) this show not only shows tremendous display of teamship in Team Voltron but also leaves on satisfied on terms of seeing all their favs getting whumped. And wanting more. <3

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ I ship anything and everything for Voltron so you cannot go wrong there. :) If you'd like to include some mention of any additional pairing or some background ongoings, it's all fine by me!
+ You are totally free to write Pidge as a trans girl, Keith as a trans man, etc! :)
+ 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 my above listed DNWs.

I love this character so, so much. <3 And because of that, I want to see him wrecked. Utterly wrecked. :3 Perhaps the scenario here could be Shiro after he has returned to Earth and with the Paladins, or after the eventual reunion in Season 3 or 4. Or even at some point as a prisoner under the Galra. Feel free to combine with any other request below or focus on just our beloved tortured Shiro.

▶︎ Abandoned in Space
I got the worst goosebumps when I saw this in the tag set. Dear fan worker, do anything you want with this. What if Shiro didn't leave at the end of Season 2 on his own accord? What if he was ejected out into space, and his friends unknowingly left him stranded there? What if he lost his memories (yet again?) What if he's all alone up in space with no memory of who he is and how to even navigate in space? A Bad Ending here is...kind of nice, actually, hee hee. :3

▶︎ Aftermath of Torture
Either after a gladiator match or set at some point during the series. Shiro tending to his injuries, being too kind to accept help/not wanting to bother others. Or injured and can't get to the healing pods in the Castle fast enough.

▶︎ Amnesia
Shiro's memories slowly return to him throughout the series, but I wonder: what if there's something in there that would absolutely devastate him? I'm especially thinking of what Josh Keaton had once shared as his own headcanon about Shiro as the Champion and the sort of opponents he had--perhaps someone who was weak and innocent, nothing like Myzax? What if memory of that innocent being returns to Shiro, completely shattering him?

▶︎ Being Tortured Triggers Past Memories
Perhaps this can be set after Season 2 or even 1 during his fight with Haggar (why did Shiro keep insisting on Keith being the leader after he's gone? Did Shiro know something we didn't?) What sort of memories returned to Shiro?

▶︎ Character has their throat slit
Simply because I like seeing Shiro hurt. <3 Perhaps during a fight (or one or more of the Paladins have to watch their leader getting slaughtered) or Shiro doing this to himself during a suicide attempt. Either is great.

▶︎ Character's Past Catches Up to Them
Shiro never really catches a break. If you look at the timeline, Ulaz helps him escape, and not one night passes before Shiro is back in space, suddenly declared the Black Paladin and hunting down the Lions and back facing the aliens who had traumatized and destroyed his life. At some point, as he's trying to finally relax, finally sleep, as that adrenaline rush finally subsides, the horrors of that one year as a prisoner finally catches up to him.

▶︎ Cotard delusion
One of my personal favorite tropes of all-time and you'll see it mentioned again in other requests. If you're interested in a prompt or some explanation on why I think Shiro may have this, I'll present this scenario: Shiro returns to Earth/his friends but he's convinced he is dead. The fact that he's the Black Paladin (not to mention the all black civilian clothes) only reinforces the belief in his mind that he's a corpse ready for burial. Looking at himself in the mirror, he's a ghost compared to the young man who left Earth one year ago. He never thinks of contacting his family to tell them he's okay; after all, what the news reported about his death is true. Why complicate things? He pretends to eat with the Paladins just to keep up appearances and not to be rude (and considering how muscular he is when the other Paladins find him, it takes time before the starvation takes on physical signs.) So, Shiro is convinced he's dead. But true to his gentle and kind heart, he stays around because he wants to guide the others, give them enough intel about the Galra, and do something good like bring Sam and Matt Holt back home before he can bow out and find a final resting place. Whether or not any of his friends catch on is all up to you. <3

▶︎ Drug Withdrawal
While a prisoner, Shiro was injected with all sorts of drugs: to numb the pain while she experimented on him, to allow him to endure pain while preparing for the next gladiator fight, and so on. No one ever told him this. They also never said this drug has a long duration of action and ebbs away sometimes weeks or months later. The withdrawal symptoms hit, hard, right in the most inappropriate time: in the midst of battle, during training, it's all up to you. Just as long as Shiro suffers while the others are confused why he's in sudden intense pain. <3

▶︎ Forced Medical Procedure
This could refer to a forced medical procedure Shiro had to endure while a Galra prisoner or he must have Allura and Coran operate on him for whatever reason and he's reluctant.

▶︎ Hemorrhage
Another personal fav. I just want to see Shiro bleeding. Lots and lots of blood and bleeding profusely. Not too fussy where the injury is. <3

▶︎ Loss of Innocence
Someone on Tumblr made a series of edits where they took scenes of Shiro and edited out the scar and made the white fringe black again, making him look remarkably very young. It exposes just how haggard Shiro has become as a prisoner. So: something showing how he's lost his innocence, how it shows on his body and how it's also reflected inside.

▶︎ Medical Experimentation
Mostly looking for the after effects and horror of medical experiments done on Shiro, but you're more than free to combine this with the section below!

▶︎ Mental Breakdown, Mind Break
Combing these two since my prompt is similar. Shiro keeping in a lot. I'm interested in that point when Shiro finally breaks down. Perhaps, say, dark!Shiro (or Kuro) fucking with Shiro's mind and Shiro is trying to keep it all together while in the company of the other Paladins/Team Voltron until he finally begins breaking/cracking/losing it and becomes a crying mess: when does it happen, what's the final straw, who witnesses it? Does another member try to comfort him? (I ship Shiro with everyone from Team Voltron, so you can take this anywhere! :D )

▶︎ Panic Attacks
Shiro totally panicking while in the arena but trying not to show it, least of all to his opponent. Or, any point in the series of Shiro panicking. Perhaps he gives an order that results in one of the other Paladins getting hurt and the guilt just sends him over the edge?

▶︎ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD
Well, this is canon. We've seen Shiro have multiple PSTD episodes throughout Season 1. If you wish to explore those moments more in depth, or explore some darker aspects of his condition or, you are free to do so. Or anything else that sets him off. What of Shiro in a relationship, if you wish to write that? Does he stay in the same bed as his lover(s)?

▶︎ Rape Recovery
Can be while as a prisoner, Shiro trying to heal his own wounds, or other prisoners taking pity on him, or Shiro coming to terms with the rape after he's settled down as a Paladin of Voltron.

▶︎ Self-Harm
Because all the torment he's suffered, especially not talking about or dealing with it in any way starts to eat away at him until he's self-harming. Perhaps it happens as early on as while he's a prisoner (considering that his hair literally turned white), and he lost his arm due to infection? Or he began it while as a Paladin, since he has the added stress of making sure not to get any of his friends killed. Someone finding out about this would be extra catnip.

▶︎ Self-Sacrifice
I'm worried this is what's happening in Season 2-3. Shiro found a way to fuck up the Galra Empire, but he stuck around long enough to get the Black Bayard before leaving. But no one can deny the tremendous love Shiro has shown for the others of Team Voltron time and time again (how he carried around near-dead Lance, running back to get Allura after she was captured, his affection towards Pidge, the entire Blade of Marmora episode, all that love for Keith, etc.) that it would not surprise me if he ultimately decides to end his suffering in a way that'll give them all the upper hand. Okay this isn't much of a prompt but the words Shiro and self-sacrifice together got me thinking.

▶︎ Whump
A good ol' trope. Just whump him up to your heart's desire. Everything from torture, emotional anguish, hurt/comfort in all the spectrums, rape, death, etc. A Shiro being a tormented, crying, bloody mess will make me smile. :)

Haggar/Shiro • Any Galra/Shiro • dark!Shiro/Shiro
More fun times for Shiro! And now with some playmates! <3 While some of these prompts may apply more to one of the combinations more than the other, if you think of a way to pair them up differently, go right ahead! :3

▶︎ Aliens keeping humans as pets
For a race that apparently considers humans too primitive, the Galra seemed to be quite fascinated with Shiro, considering how they were using him in gladiator matches and Haggar was working on turning him into the Empire's greatest weapon. But even with this fascination, there's something so damn dehumanizing about that.

▶︎ Almost died
I'm mostly imagining a Shiro flatlining on an operating table and Haggar and the Druids trying to revive him while unfamiliar with the specifics of human physiology (such as the concentration of electrolytes, especially potassium, required by humans for life.) Just anything that could lead to some medical horror would be awesome here, or just any scenario. Perhaps dark!Shiro messing around in Shiro's head so much that Shiro fucks up and nearly gets himself killed while on a mission? Or one of the Galra brutalizes him so badly that his body's all crushed and on the brink of death?

▶︎ Amputation
Ah, a nice canon moment? Why did Shiro get that arm? Was it a gift from Haggar or did something happen to his human arm?

▶︎ Becoming The Thing That You Most Hate/Fear
This is mostly for dark!Shiro, but any little thing that makes Shiro fear he is becoming just like that dark vision Haggar showed him. It haunts him, gnaws away at him.

▶︎ Bloodplay
Anything and everything to do with blood, including blood drinking if you so desire. Sendak, another Galra, or even dark!Shiro playing around in Shiro's blood as a means of torture, smearing Shiro's blood on his body, using blood as lube, etc. Dark!Shiro perhaps manipulating Shiro to cut himself and smear blood on his own body because he's looking a bit pale?

▶︎ Experimented On While Experimenters Think Character Is Unconscious
Perhaps Shiro wakes up in the middle of the operation/experiment and cannot communicate for whatever reason or he was never properly anesthetized (or whatever they use on aliens doesn't work on humans.) Can Shiro feel the pain of the experiment?

▶︎ Forced drug addiction
Perhaps after some point, Shiro refused to continue being the Champion, so they began forcing a drug on him that would induce insanity and violence? >:D A Shiro in withdrawal after is my catnip, unf.

▶︎ Forced Medical Procedure
Shiro being forced to become Haggar's lab rat, or being forced for any medical procedure, such as something life-saving but Shiro resisting (perhaps choosing death over life.)

▶︎ Hearing Voices
a dark!Shiro/Shiro prompt but I can also see an invisible!Haggar tormenting Shiro this way. Shiro unable to stop the voice and how it's infiltrating into his head.

▶︎ Medical Experimentation
All the lovely things Haggar had done to Shiro. Surely she had to have been curious about human limits, no? And what our bodies could consume and couldn't, what was poison to us and wasn't. Cue Shiro having to go through all of that, perhaps having had flatlined a few times only to have been successfully revived in the nick of time?

▶︎ Mindfuck
Like the other prompt in the Shiro section, dark!Shiro tormenting Shiro's mind while he's trying to keep it together in front of the Paladins.

▶︎ Nipple Torture
I read an awesome fic recently where in one scene Sendak wondered why male humans had nipples. Going back to the whole idea of the Galra being intrigued by human anatomy and biology, they have a bit of fun with this assumed-viviparous specimen before them. Perhaps male Galra don't have them, which makes Shiro's all the more interesting. Cue them trying to milk him, to testing his limits and even drawing a bit of blood.

▶︎ Object Insertion
All in the name of alien science, I'm sure! Or perhaps a Galra humiliating Shiro by sticking their weapons where they shouldn't (or Sendak sticking his robot arm where he shouldn't), or even dark!Shiro finding all the cool things from Shiro's past, things Shiro cherished, and tainting the memory and meaning of them by violating him with them.

▶︎ Oviposition
Reptilian Galra definitely exist, as an upcoming Season 3 character strongly suggests. For this, perhaps as a reward (Shiro doesn't think it's much of a reward), he can relax in a warm room while hosting the eggs of one of the Galra. The entire process of being laid into and so forth must have been fun for Shiro, I'm sure. Space is great, isn't it?

▶︎ Rape as Part of Scientific Experimentation and Research
Pretty self explanatory, but Haggar (and maybe the Druids can play along) raping Shiro while closely observing his reactions, for whatever reason. Perhaps detachedly testing his endurance to being stretched, testing his limits, how much he can take the pain, and so on.

▶︎ Raped by Monsters
The Monsters being the Galra themselves or dark!Shiro shapeshifting into the stuff of nightmares, or perhaps a time when Shiro was publicly violated in the gladiator by a monstrous opponent? Tentacles is more than welcome here too!

▶︎ Raped On Many Different Occasions
Going along with the whole "Galra find humans soft and squishy." All the times Shiro found himself being raped, by Sendak, another Galra, by assistants of Haggar, Haggar herself as a sort of experiment, etc.

▶︎ Raped While Injured
Great place to introduce a little wound fucking, wherever the wound may be located. Or just Shiro worn out and bleeding after a gladiator match, vulnerable in his cell for any Galra to go in and do as they please with him. Perhaps the winners of a bet during the match get to enjoy the Champion after the match (and getting their money.)

▶︎ Sewing/Branding Metal in Skin
Taking us through the procedure of Haggar placing on the robot arm. Was it just the one or did she try a few before settling on one that she liked? What if she did all this without applying any sort of numbing agent on Shiro so every eternal second was excruciating? :3

▶︎ Sleep Deprivation As A Form Of Torture
Perhaps as an experiment as well (or that's what Haggar would want Shiro to think, that Galra don't need sleep), but Shiro being forced to stay awake well beyond what he's ever been used to until he begins to hallucinate. Bonus for all the hallucinatory monsters and nightmares, and dark!Shiro appearance perhaps? :)

Back to: This SubsectionSectionFandomsTop of Letter

Allura & Coran & Hunk & Keith & Lance & Pidge & Shiro • Shiro/Keith • Any Galra/Team Voltron
Shiro with his lovers and friends. Because the team that suffers together stays together. <3 For Team Voltron you can go with them either all being gen or any ship combinations you like or even have them all as one big poly if you like that too. <3 And, again, some prompts here might be more relevant to one of the pairings more than the others.

▶︎ Accidental Incest
This one's for Shiro/Keith, based on an idea that the two might find out they are brothers (or half-brothers considering that Keith is part-Galra.) What if they were already in a romantic relationship, and even more, after consideration decide they're okay with continuing as a couple? But while they're okay with it, it turns out that incest is extremely frowned upon among aliens, and their relationship could destroy the reputation of Voltron, no matter how much other planets may need their help.

▶︎ Came Back Wrong
Wow, did Season 3 do a number on me! So there are enough hints throughout Episode 5 that the Shiro from that point on may not the Shiro we know and love. Perhaps he's a clone (Operation Kuron, with kuron being Japanese for clone), or he's Shiro as a sleeper agent. Absolutely anything playing with this would be great. The little moments we had in canon were such wonderful fodder for potential darkfic. How he's so different from Shiro in tiny ways. Shiro is always supportive of Keith in public and privately speaks to him of any conflict; meanwhile, "Kuron" yells at him publicly, even while Keith is meant to be the new leader of Voltron, and praises him privately. Little things like that...intrigue me (although I will say, I don't think Kuron is evil. Maybe that's the plan of the Galra, but it might all blow up in their faces once the Team get wind of this and help their friend.)

Any way you wish to explore this would be neat. Something triggering Shiro to hurt Keith or other members of Team Voltron, or Kuron doing something to land all of Team Voltron right in the hands of the Galra Empire? Or, something with all of the Shiros (Shiro, Kuro, Kuron (future Ryou?)...maybe a little cameo from a certain space Norwegian?) all team up somehow, along with the Paladins, to figure out what's going on? Is this all Haggar's doing? Really, anything here would be neat. :D Or perhaps, if you don't like the clone/sleeper agent idea, a Shiro who has been so tormented returns to Keith for the final time, as neither one are aware that he's slowly dying? (hence why the Black Lion rejected him? To give the poor dying man a break?)

▶︎ Characters forced to have sex as entertainment of third party, Rape as Entertainment/Sport for an Audience
Combining any of the elements mentioned elsewhere here, such as Team Voltron having to perform in front of an audience lest one of them gets killed. Or being raped for all of the Empire to witness or for one of the higher members of the empire such as Zarkon, Haggar, etc. I would love to see the team, well, working as a team given the circumstances. They'll stick together no matter what, even if it is being degraded before all of their enemies.

▶︎ Enduring Pain to Protect Another, Enduring Rape to Protect Another, Enduring Torture to Protect Another, Self-Sacrfice
Putting these all together for a similar prompt. For any character especially if they are cornered/captured by the Galra. Shiro or Coran wanting to throw themselves out first to protect the entire crew, or Keith shielding Shiro, or even Allura wanting to sacrifice herself for everyone, although she would be pushed back by her friends because the Galra definitely want her most. I'll leave that all for you if you go for this prompt. This can work well paired with any of the other prompts. The team members sure do love one another and I'd love to see that come out during such an awful time for them. :)

▶︎ Forced to hurt someone in order to protect them from something worse
Either voluntarily (such as when Allura threw Shiro into the escape pod so he wouldn't be imprisoned by the Galra) or something where a character has a choice: either the villain harms them, or they do it, and the character decides to do the harming themself. Maybe it will be less bad this way?

▶︎ Forced to Watch Rape
One of my favs. Someone being forced to watch. Perhaps all of Team Voltron is captured after losing a battle, and as a celebration, they must watch each member getting raped before the entire team. Either focus on one character or have each one take turns.

▶︎ Fuck or Die
Always a delicious prompt. Perhaps two members who aren't in a relationship or well suited sexually are forced to fuck lest a third member's brain gets blown out? (such as: Allura/Lance with Pidge's life on the line?) Bonus if one of the victims is too nervous about performing (such as Pidge being fucked by Shiro but they know if they don't they could lose Keith.)

▶︎ Hero Becomes the Villain
The tables getting turned, with Team Voltron ultimately defeating Galra Empire but at the cost of their own sense of morals. I once read a wonderful fic that compared each Paladin to one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (with Shiro being Lucifer.) Something like that would be great. If you're looking for Shiro/Keith-centric, perhaps they're never found on that planet they crash-land on in Season 2, and by the time Team Voltron or anyone else hears from them again, they've turned villainous after they've weathered life on that harsh world.

▶︎ Major Illness
Anything here: terribly high fevers, slow-killing illnesses that's not easy to cure, things with horrific symptoms like vomiting blood. I'll also include injuries under this. It would be sweet if they're too far away or can't get to the healing pods in time, or it's still some time before they can get there. Resorting to archaic forms of medicine and healing is always great to see! Or, it's something where even a healing pod isn't helping?

▶︎ Mission Failure
The team failing on an important mission that gets them captured by the Empire, or Shiro or Keith feeling like they've failed one another during a mission and the fallout from that.

▶︎ Monster Transformation Must Be Undone By Sex
I'm mostly thinking of Keith going full Galra. Perhaps under extreme stress/adrenaline rush/trauma makes him go full violet, but the planet the Team is visiting still do not trust anything Galra. To help him turn back into a human appearance, Shiro (and/or others) must have sex with Keith. It's not exactly pleasant, not with the shame Keith may be feeling over this.

▶︎ Prison Survival
Going back to the idea of the team being captured/imprisoned, the seven of them working together to survive and ultimately get out of the sticky situation.

▶︎ Recovery Process after Torture
I would love this for any of the requested pairings. Either Shiro and Keith comforting one another, or the entire Team finding ways to bring comfort, care, and healing after a grueling ordeal with those damn Galra.

▶︎ Sentient Evil Spaceships
Either another situation like "Crystal Venom" arises but more dire or they enter another spaceship that tries to kill them. Perhaps a spaceship that forces each member to face their greatest fear or recount their darkest memory/desires/etc?

▶︎ Space Horror
Because space can be scary. The idea of them getting stranded or making an emergency landing on a strange new planet or moon that turns out to almost kill them (creatures, environmental factors, etc.) Ghosts on a moon?

▶︎ Wilderness Survival
They've visited so many worlds and had cases of nearly losing one another. A situation where the entire team, or just Shiro/Keith, become stranded on a planet none of them know anything about and trying to navigate their way through it?

Back to: This SubsectionSectionFandomsTop of Letter

Keith • Any Galra/Keith • Keith/Shiro • Keith/Lance • Keith & Lotor
Because why should Shiro have all the fun? :D Again, some prompts may apply more to one pairing than another, but if you have some idea on how to apply them, go with it! :D

▶︎ Castration
Keith getting castrated for whatever reason. Perhaps a tumor growing and his lover (be it Shiro or Lance (or both if you want to write poly)) help him, or Lotor or another Galra ordering the castration as a means of displaying dominance over Keith after winning a duel.

▶︎ Character's memories were a dream/a delusion
A horror scenario for Keith for sure, if he realizes that all of his memories up until he entered Galaxy Garrison were all just a dream or delusion, and he's nothing human, just a Galra rejected by his mother?

▶︎ Dark Hanahaki Disease
Either Keith as the sufferer or Shiro/Lance. Perhaps spores from an alien planet triggers the disease; either Galra or humans are susceptible to them. And the disease nearly kills them by means of vines growing out, ripping out their throats from the inside, etc. Any which way you'd like to get creative with this. :)

▶︎ Exsanguination
Perhaps as a form of victory, Lotor has his victims drained of their blood, OR as part of some odd and terrifying ritual, Keith must undergo this under the Blade of Marmora (perhaps that will reveal his Galra form?)

▶︎ Forced to hurt someone in order to protect them from something worse
Something or someone prompts Keith to hurt a loved one in order to protect them. Bonus if this splinters or even shatters the trust between them, and it leaves Keith brokenhearted but he knew he had to do it. I would love to see the aftereffects of this too, a gloating villain who knew this was a win/win situation for them as it meant tormenting Keith and isolating him from his team. :)

▶︎ Hemorrhage
Blood! <3 Anything that would lead to copious amounts of blood seeping out of our favorite Red Paladin. :D Again, not fussy at all about the site of injury. Head, chest, stomach, limbs, and so on. Shiro or Lance holding onto Keith helplessly, not having any means to help him, or Lotor or a Galra watching with satisfaction as Keith bleeds to death. Or just Keith, completely alone and not having any means of stopping the bleeding.

▶︎ Identity Issues
Mostly dealing with Keith struggling with his Galra identity and what it means. "You fight like a Galra soldier" was once said to him. What else does he notice about himself is Galra-like? As time goes on, does Keith feel less and less human? Is he made to feel less human?

▶︎ Irresistible Instincts/Urges
Can go hand-in-hand with the above. As Keith becomes more Galra-like, he notices more carnal urges and instincts. He tries to keep them abated, but it's like the old werewolf tales: the monster is always lurking just below the surface. Shiro or Lance becoming the victim of a sudden outburst in the heat of the moment. Or perhaps this tag refers to Lotor or any of the Galra and any sort of urge they cannot resist with the half-Galra Keith.

▶︎ Killing Someone You Love For A Greater Cause
Perhaps this is something Keith has to do per the Blade of Marmora? Did Lance enter a place in their quarters he wasn't supposed to enter and per customs Keith must kill him? Or perhaps Shiro or Lance are ordered to kill Keith since the universe cannot trust a Team Voltron with a Galra in their midst, and so Keith must be disposed of. I'd love to see how that plays out, a tough situation. :)

▶︎ Loss of Innocence
Can refer to Keith, Lance, or Shiro, and could refer to anything, some traumatic event that made the character feel like something was taken away from them. Perhaps something that the Galra did to one or both/all three of them.

▶︎ Need to Produce an Heir
Keith is told by the Blade that he must produce an heir (perhaps his lineage, as it turns out, is close to that of royalty) and he's forced into having to choose a Galra to mate with. Or Lotor, being infertile beyond even magical aid, needs another means to have a child to secure the throne for himself, and decides to use Keith in any way (perhaps with a little help from his mother and her magic.)

▶︎ Oviposition
I've requested this for Shiro, but the same idea for Keith here as well! :D Any of the Galra happen to decide to lay eggs into him, or he's dragged off to be used as an incubator as punishment after losing to Lotor in a duel.

▶︎ Poisoning
I love this scenario. Could go for any of the characters. Either the sufferer is with a loved one or under Galra's hands.

▶︎ Possessed Victim noncons Victim
Perhaps Keith's mind gets possessed by Haggar or a Druid, and he's ordered to rape one of his loved ones. Or, reverse scenario. Considering the love and ties we see within the Paladins, I'd love to see this get tested in this kind of scenario.

▶︎ Public Humiliation
This goes with the idea that as a Galra, Keith is playing a dangerous game. People of the universe don't trust the Galra, and if they ever knew the supposed new leader of Voltron was Galra, it would stir a scandal. Something that plays with this would be great, especially since I can just see Lotor jumping on the chance.

▶︎ Rape To Avoid Loss of Status
This goes with the above idea. Perhaps to save face and Voltron from losing credibility (and peoples' trust in it), Keith agrees to being raped and his identity kept a secret. Doesn't stop Lotor and/or other Galra from being as brutally cruel as possible.

▶︎ Sex Pollened Character/Non-Sex Pollened Character
Perhaps passing by a field on an alien world, the Paladins encounter spores that makes anyone with Galra blood sex-crazed but doesn't affect humans, and Keith forces himself on either Shiro or Lance? Perhaps this was all set up by Lotor or another who knew what would happen?

▶︎ Stomach Wounds
Any kind: knives/swords, puncture wounds, lasers, disembowelment, etc.

▶︎ Torture
In any which way: Lotor tormenting Keith (perhaps with his sword? Or slow agonizing torture with knives?) Or torture after being caught up with a bunch of Galra? Or internal torture over something to do with Shiro or Lance?

▶︎ Transformations
Something based on this wonderful fanart perhaps? A loved one getting brutalized, near death sends Keith into a full Galra mode. >:D

A Redtail's Dream

Requesting: Fic or Art

Where to Find:
Completed. Free to read online. 556 pages. English (Finnish also available.) Webcomic that ran from September 2011 to October 23, 2013 which follows the journey of a young man (Hannu Viitanen) and his dog through the other side of the Bird's Path through the realm of dreams to rescue his friends from Tuonela. A relatively light canon that is based on Finnish lore, but with some area one can easily have fun introducing darker elements or making pre-existing aspects of the canon darker! :D

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ Background ships if you're interested in including them as well as my requested pairing: Jonna/Riikka, Joona/Anssi, Paju/Hannu, Paju/anyone, any canon ships. I also love all of the friendships and the animal companions here.
+ Crossovers/SSSS Year 0 scenarios are always nice. :)

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

Hannu Viitanen/Samuli Tiira

▶︎ Alternate Universe - Canonical Dark AU
What if the story was called A Redtail's Nightmare? The same canon but with a much darker take on Finnish lore?

▶︎ Alternate Universe - Dark
Could be similar to above, or something that takes place post-canon. Anything here would be neat. This is a relatively light canon so seeing the darker aspects would be great, especially since I'm a sucker for all those "small quiet villages with dark secrets/pasts" tales.

▶︎ Alternate Universe - Serial Killers
Going with a "What if" Samuli was a serial killer, and took an interest in Hannu?

▶︎ Abuse of Authority, Alternate Universe - Post-Apocalypse, Post-Apocalyptic Survival
Combining these prompts together. In an SSSS/Year 0 scenario, Hannu has to stick with Samuli if he wishes to survive the Rash. As the world settles into the new dark age, Samuli is assumed the new leader of the small community of survivors, and he has every intention of abusing it just to mess with Hannu (and perhaps find his way into Hannu's pants.)

▶︎ Character has their throat slit
For whatever reason. Perhaps Hannu trusts Samuli when he shouldn't and finds himself in a sticky situation and ends up with his death?

▶︎ Character Is Dead And Doesn't Know It
After the events in canon, Samuli becomes much warmer towards Hannu. Perhaps he alone remembers the "dream" as being something more significant and even more, he realizes that Hannu never truly left Tuonela. For that alone he has sympathy for the undead young man.

▶︎ Codependency
Yum, just give me any sort of unhealthy relationship in which Hannu latches onto Samuli. What could the older man want from him in return?

▶︎ Cotard delusion
The encounter with Puppy-Fox had left Hannu feeling odd. Very odd. He never felt like he had left Tuonela at all. In fact, he's definitely certain he's dead. Samuli happens to have a sibling who studies mental disorders (and Samuli himself, perhaps, enjoys reading up on this sort of thing; finds it fascinating), and he grows interested in Hannu's situation.

▶︎ Dark Character
Samuli was shown to be just an older man and the owner of the dog Astrid, but what if there was a darker side to him? What if that gives Hannu a thrill, who finds himself missing that from the Puppy-Fox incident?

▶︎ Forced Deepthroat/Choking on a Dick
Any situation that ends up with Hannu on his knees and being forced to suck off Samuli sounds lovely. <3

▶︎ Hate Sex
Kind of going with the above. There seemed to be some animosity going on between the two. I would love to see some arguement that ends with the two smashing their faces together as their bodies pound against the wall.

▶︎ Necrophilia
For whatever reason. Perhaps Samuli comes across Hannu's body while his spirit is in Tuonela, or Samuli murders him if you'd like to play with a serial killer!AU version of him. Either way, he decides to fuck the corpse.

▶︎ Owned Like a Pet
Hannu misses having a dog. What if *he* becomes a pet, specifically, Samuli's? Or something like that. I'm mainly getting inspired to add this because of A Perfect Circle's "Pet". However this inspires, have fun! :D

▶︎ Rough Sex to Stave Off Other Violent Urges
Feeding into the one of the above prompts, perhaps Samuli (and/or Hannu) has many dark urges such as rape, murder, arson, and so on. The two find that rough and violent sex together keeps these urges at bay and helps to keep them living as normal a life as possible in the otherwise quiet village.

▶︎ Sexual Relationship as Unhealthy Coping Mechanism
Hannu would never admit this, but he misses having a dog. Ville as a human just isn't the same. He finds himself roaming around Samuli's place just to catch the chance to give Astrid a pat. It turns into a most horrid affair with her owner, Samuli.

▶︎ Using another person's admiration for you to take advantage of them
Kind of straight forward, just another chance to see more creepy Samuli, I guess. :)

Stand Still Stay Silent
Jump to: Lalli/KadeReynir/LalliReynir/Lalli & KadeReynir & Lalli & Tuuri

Requesting: Fic or Art

Where to Find:
Currently active since November 2013 (updates Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.) Free to read online. 760+ pages as of July 28. Available in English. Webcomic with the premise that 90 years prior to the main story, a Rash Illness killed off most of the human race, dissolving to the world into mere surviving communities, aka the Known World (currently from the main characters' POV, that is patches in the Nordic countries) and the Silent World (everything else.) An expedition of six unlikely crew members head out to explore the Silent World, among other things. Despite the very grim backdrop, the comic has its light moments and for the most part skirted around bleak topics and guarded its heroes with quick last-minutes saves. Things have only gotten grim for the crew recently this year, but there's always room for more misery. :) Story takes inspirations from Norse and Finnish lore.

Lalli Hotakainen/Original Kade Character
Assume Lalli knew this person in Keuruu, and some of the scenarios here took place before Lalli left for the expedition, or at some other point if you wish to combine this with the Reynir/Lalli prompt below. I like to imagine this kade as an older man, handsome but deadly powerful.

▶︎ Abusive Relationships, Domestic Violence
Inspired by a drawerfic with the premise of "Reynir is assumed dead after a terrible battle with a kade, who has now taken Lalli against his will to an undisclosed remote region in the Silent World." Or, go with any other premise you like. Perhaps the kade was a Finnish mage Lalli worked with before in Keuruu and respected before learning of his true nature? Anything that ends up with Lalli, with no where to turn, forced into a relationship with a man he does not love and has to live in constant fear of the next time the man will rape him. Make it as painful and horrific as possible, as the situation is certainly bleak (isolated, abused, getting closer to death every day, grieving over his lover, living in constant fear, etc.) Involve bloodplay, involve death, involve anything you can think of. Kades are viciously jealous mages, so someone constantly accusing Lalli of being unfaithful and then punishing him for it would be great.

▶︎ Blackmail
Perhaps Lalli was blackmailed into the relationship, or the kade kept sending threats to Lalli throughout the expedition about not making any friends or he'll pay for it. Perhaps the messages come unconventionally, such as through dreams or in other means that only a mage would pick up on.

▶︎ Body Horror
Kade mutilating Lalli's body either in the waking world or in the dreamworld, where he is free to take it to levels near impossible and could otherwise result in death.

▶︎ Brain Damage Leaves Character Unable To Speak
Whatever the kade did, he abused Lalli so badly that after an incident, he's left unable to speak. Either permanent or temporarily, but it leaves Lalli without the ability to recite runos that could fight off the kade every time he attacks him. Perhaps this bleeds into the dreamworld as well?

▶︎ Character Isn't Sure Whether They've Been Raped
Something heartbreaking for this one, such as Lalli's mind having been so twisted that he's not sure if he was raped or not. Perhaps he loves the kade and doesn't want to face the facts? Won't listen to reason? Or wanted to have sex with the kade but something...something wasn't right about that experience.

▶︎ Dependent on Enemy for Survival
For whatever reason, Lalli needing the kade to live despite how much his life is also put in danger under him.

▶︎ Emotional Manipulation
Lalli doesn't do well with emotions to begin with. Let's have a kade really fuck him up further!

▶︎ Forced Deepthroat/Choking on a Dick
Just the mental image of that, of little thin Lalli having to deepthroat a large cock...good times. <3

▶︎ Forced Feminization
Perhaps as a means of humiliating him or because of finding out about Lalli's own questioning about his gender, the kade insists on Lalli dressing more feminine around the apartment as well as adopting more traditional female gender roles, much to Lalli's shame and humiliation.

▶︎ Gaslighting
Lalli's mind getting fucked even more as the kade gaslights him until he's not even sure what is reality.

▶︎ Jealousy Leading to Murder
Because Kades are all about the jealousy. Perhaps the kade kills Lalli when he returns from the expedition or he's been stalking the crew the entire time, his green eyes cursing every step of the way until he finally steps in and murders someone, either a lover or friend or Lalli himself.

▶︎ Loneliness
Lalli *is* lonely. We get that sense in the early chapters of the series. Perhaps that loneliness is what got him into trouble with the kade? Sad and alone after the incident in Saimaa, he looks for a companion in Keuruu and meets an older man who takes him under his wing...and then breaks him.

▶︎ Necrophilia
Nice, simple tag. Lalli dead and the kade enjoying the spoils. >:D

▶︎ Obsession/Stalking Escalates to Kidnapping
Kind of like a similar prompt above but maybe sans the murder.

▶︎ Rape
Can happen anywhere: at Lalli's home, during the expedition if it's a kade they meet in the Silent World, or at some point after. Could also happen in the dreamworld: perhaps one night Lalli comes upon a handsome older man who ends up luring Lalli into a trap and has his way with him. Bonus if a curse is placed on Lalli so he can't wake up from the nightmare. He has to go through the entire horrifically vivid ordeal.

▶︎ Rape Recovery
Perhaps Lalli dealing with the rape right afterwards or going through everything in his head while on the expedition, hoping he's free from that kade.

▶︎ Using another person's admiration for you to take advantage of them
Oh, I love this. Because the idea of Lalli admiring and looking up to the kade before realizing what he is until it's too late makes me so, so evilly gleeful. <3

Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen
Time to bring on some misery onto my OTP. >:D You can add in some scenarios from above as the backdrop since I love damaged Lalli so much.

▶︎ Aftermath of Violence
Perhaps after a battle with a troll, an army of them, or anything else traumatic and the two are just needing some time to recuperate. Except this experience has left a few wounds that won't heal.

▶︎ Architectural Horror
I love the idea that trolls may have fused into the environment itself. Sentient buildings, hills that become alive with the sound of music, or just other things like bridges collapsing just as they are to be crossed.

▶︎ Blood Magic
Unf, I love blood and lots of it. Reynir finally getting the nerve to do magic with blood. What does he try to do? Bring Tuuri back? Try to find the path to the underworld? Some sort of ritualistic blood sugar sex magic (if you know the reference, I'm writing you something <3 ) that he and Lalli enjoy doing together, if you like to explore a darker side of these characters?

▶︎ Bloodplay
Going with the above. :D Blood, blood, and more blood! Perhaps Lalli cutting Reynir and enjoying drawing pictures on the floor with it in his adorably crude art style?

▶︎ Burtonesque Horror
I love Tim Burton. Honestly, anything that inspires you here. I'm mostly thinking of Nightmare Before Christmas/Corpse Bride/Frankenweenie type of aesthetic and story. I think it'll match real well with this canon. Underworld adventures? A Tale of Two Mages? Have fun! :D

▶︎ Character Is Not Human And Doesn't Know It
This can go both ways. Perhaps Reynir is a god and doesn't know it. Lalli is a troll and doesn't know it. They're fated to kill one another another, except...they've fall in love as well.

▶︎ Cotard delusion
Ah, this tag again. <3 Perhaps this can be combined with Lalli/kade above as a sort of aftereffects of being under the kade's spell, or it's a sort of shock that came from having lost Tuuri. Lalli is convinced that he's dead. Not being able to sense the wilderness around them anymore has nothing to do with the fact that he's grieving/depressed so much that he can't focus on his magic--it's because he himself is dead. He's accepted it, stops eating, stops living, no matter how much Reynir gently keeps trying to convince him otherwise.

▶︎ Hearing Voices
It's canon that both Lalli and Reynir hear voices from that wonderful Mr. Ed ghost horse. An exploration on that would be neat, of them being the only two who can hear these voices. Or perhaps one begins to hear voices but never, ever finds the source. His lover begins to think he's just imagining them.

▶︎ Hemorrhage
Lalli getting impaled or Reynir getting injured and just hemorrhaging while the other watches helplessly. Leaning towards Lalli being the victim here, but if your heart leans the other way I won't complain! :D

▶︎ Loneliness
Lalli definitely was lonely as the early chapters showed, and I believe his first sight of Reynir in the dreamworld (and recalling that dream) was him wishing to have gotten to know him. An exploration of that would be great, especially before he does meet Reynir for real, considering that Lalli in that brief moment of hope that he may have met someone, almost drowned...

▶︎ Mental Health Issues
Take this any way you wish. If you'd like to explore Lalli's strongly-hinted-at autism and how it can bring about hardship for him, go right ahead. Or, perhaps other mental health concerns, such as depression settling in after Tuuri's death (and this can apply to Reynir showing signs of grief/depression as well.) Or if you'd like to have Lalli/kade as well, the aftereffects and PSTD from having been in an abusive relationship.

▶︎ Mercy Killing
Something that prompts the lovers to kill one another as an act of mercy, or for one of them. Reynir getting infected and Lalli is NOT going through that shit again, or Lalli getting so grievously injured that it's either a long, slow tormented death or a quick mercy kill from his lover.

▶︎ Nightmares
Because these mages have dreams and enter dreamworlds. What of nightmares? And do they manifest in the dreamworld? I'd love to see that.

▶︎ Rape Recovery
Ether after being raped by a kade or by some other unpleasant folks they ran into in the Silent World. Lalli does pain so well in the comic. So does poor, gloomy Reynir (and he's hot when he's pissed), so let's have the couple have some situation like this to deal with! :D

▶︎ Self-harm
Lalli harming himself either because of Tuuri's death or as an aftermath of being raped/in an abusive relationship with a kade. I'd love to see Reynir after he learns of this, and him trying to help Lalli who may not be very open to being helped.

▶︎ Serious Injuries
Lalli. Just...Lalli, getting brutally and badly injured. All bruised up and bleeding and beautiful. :D Anything with this would make me so pleased, especially a Lalli who's trying to hold in how much this really hurts (and doing a bad job of it.)

▶︎ Sex Pollened Character/Non-Sex Pollened Character
During a scouting session, Lalli gets doused in sex pollen. When he returns, he fucks the first thing he sees: Reynir, who is not at all in any mood for sex and is trying to fight off Lalli, no matter how much he loves him.

▶︎ Soulmates in Doomed Reincarnation Cycle
See Veeti/Jaakko in Year in Hereafter! :D The appearance, occupation, and personalities align so well that it's almost eerie! (FWIW, YiH would have happened before the events of SSSS.) Lalli and Reynir learn they are soulmates, and even more, they're locked in a cycle that they cannot get out of. What's keeping them from moving on into the afterlife together?

▶︎ Suicide
I selected this as an umbrella term. Consider this as a suicide, suicide attempt, suicide pact, etc. Absolutely anything here. Both characters are grieving and depressed. One snaps and kills himself. Or they both agree to, for whatever reason (in a tight spot?)

▶︎ Wilderness Survival
Reynir and Lalli getting separated from the rest of the crew and having to survive in the Silent World together, with a language barrier (and it's not too easy to just skip into the dreamworld.) Fun times ahead!

Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen & Original Kade Character

▶︎ Be Careful What You Wish For, Demon Deals, Faustian Bargain
In the search for a cure for Tuuri (or trying to retrieve her spirit from Tuonela), they make a wish, and it is answered by a kade who makes a proposal to them. A bargain or deal is made. Something they cannot resist but it would have dire consequences.

▶︎ Character has their throat slit
Either Lalli or Reynir, not too fussy about the victim. So long as there is suffering.

▶︎ Character turns evil, Dark character
I'm in love with the idea of these characters going to the dark side. :D Say Lalli gets seduced first and, not wanting to be alone, seduces Reynir next since at least it'll be a group of three mages. Perhaps he hopes of finding a cure/helping Tuuri this way?

▶︎ Characters forced to have sex as entertainment of third party, Fuck or Die, Forced to rape
I love the brutality that comes with this scenario. Perhaps the kade captures them during the mission and Reynir has a choice: either both die, or he persuades a very prone-to-overstimulation Lalli to be fucked in front of the kade in order for them to be released. Reynir, not being the kind to give up but also has the language barrier to deal with, has to find a means to get Lalli comfortable enough to go along with this, while the kade watches and pleasures himself (and wants to join, just to make the experience far less enjoyable for Lalli if he starts to get too comfortable with the sex. After all, Reynir's not bad looking. At all.)

▶︎ Dark Magic
Either dark magic befalling the two characters or they themselves engaging in dark magic along with the kade.

▶︎ Enduring Rape to Protect Another
Either Lalli or Reynir agreeing to being raped so the other wouldn't have to. I can see the latter doing so since Lalli hates being touched, although the kade may want to somehow get a taste of both.

▶︎ Forced to hurt someone in order to protect them from something worse
Kind of like the Fuck or Die scenario above, but this one can be anything, not just noncon. Perhaps Lalli hurting Reynir just because he knows what else the kade could do to him, and it's better this way if it's coming from him instead?

▶︎ Forced to Watch Rape
Perhaps set during the mission or after. Reynir is tied up and forced to watch the kade rape Lalli, especially if the Kade is doing this to get a reaction out of Reynir and Reynir is a wreck, screaming and red-faced and struggling against his binds. Bonus if after reducing Lalli down to a bloody mess of tears, he has the men trade places, forcing Lalli to watch Reynir get wrecked.

▶︎ Jealousy Leading to Murder
Ah, I love this one. XD Jealous, jealous kade. Stalking the couple during the expedition, after the mission, until something finally snaps and he moves in to kill either Reynir (for taking Lalli from him) or Lalli (because Lalli isn't his.)

▶︎ Possessed Victim noncons Victim
A kade manages to possess Lalli's mind (through magic or through a dream) and orders him to go violently rape and torment Reynir. Reynir tries to break the spell the whole time he's being raped and tortured by his lover. Bonus for Kade-on-Lalli rape after the truth dawns on Lalli and he's filled with horror.

▶︎ Revenge from beyond the grave
Would love if this is after Lalli was killed in a jealous rage. Perhaps in some AU where Reynir is a detective Icelandic mage studying the murder case, and it leads to the ghost of Lalli returning in time to exert revenge on the kade who killed him? Or perhaps Reynir was presumed dead for the longest time after the kade came to claim Lalli as his, but then Reynir returned, And is seething pissed. >:D

▶︎ Torture
Good ol' torture, of Lalli or Reynir or both.

▶︎ Vengeful Spirits
What if kades don't have physical form? Imagine how much worse that could be, having awful, wrathful jealous spirits to deal with!

▶︎ Whump
Absoleutely anything: Everything from torture, emotional anguish, hurt/comfort in all the spectrums, rape, death, etc. Break these darlings. <3

Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen • Reynir Árnason & Lalli Hotakainen & Tuuri Hotakainen • Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen/Tuuri Hotakainen

▶︎ Alternate Universe - Inception Fusion
I love the idea of a dream within a dream (and how time is affected.) Perhaps THAT is what Tuonela is like? Or Reynir and Lalli have to do some kind of Inception-like adventure, going deeper and deeper into dreams before they can find the last layer/stage where Tuuri is and save her.

▶︎ Be Careful What You Wish For
Same as the tag above: Reynir and Lalli wished to have Tuuri back. They got it. But something is amiss.

▶︎ Burtonesque Horror
Again, another request based solely because I love Tim Burton. Something that draws on the aesthetic of Halloweentown would be awesome, or the land of the dead from The Corpse Bride, even. :D

▶︎ Came Back Wrong
Reynir and Lalli managed to bring Tuuri back, but...something is amiss. Something just isn't right about Tuuri and neither mage can communicate it to the others.

▶︎ Character Is Dead And Doesn't Know It
When they fished out Tuuri's body from the sea, she was, miraculously, still alive. They go back on their mission and Tuuri resumes her role. But the thing is, due to some kind of weird mutated form of the disease that she's contracted: Tuuri IS dead, except she doesn't realize it and neither does anyone else.

▶︎ Character Is Haunted By Bad Things They Had To Do For A Good Cause
Reynir and Lalli having to do terrible things to get Tuuri back (FWIW, I heard that killing the Swan would be highly offensive, so maybe not to that extreme, but...)

▶︎ Character Is Like Catnip To Supernatural Beings
Could be in reference to Tuuri or Reynir. Something about them just brings all the ghostly baddies to the yard. Can apply to Lalli too now that I think about it. :)

▶︎ Character Lives But Things Still Go Wrong
Tuuri manages to return to the world of living but she still dies, with an even worst death no one foresaw. A painful lesson for Reynir and Lalli that what is dead should stay dead?

▶︎ Dark Character
In their quest to save Tuuri, the two mages turn darker and darker.

▶︎ Fate Worse Than Death
Kind of like a prompt above, by rescuing Tuuri, she ends up getting damned into a life that's even worst than death. Not so much getting back into her infected body or becoming a troll. Perhaps the new body is in constant pain, making her always desire death?

▶︎ Incest
Between Lalli and Tuuri! Not only are they cousins but genetically they are half-siblings! :D Perhaps an attraction that began in their youth which Onni tried to stifle out that blossomed again now that no one is there to prevent them? >:3 And Reynir is more than welcome to join in. Perhaps some consequence for this relationship? Or, Lalli dealing with feelings towards Tuuri that he keeps hidden for reasons (FWIW, I do have a crack headcanon that Lalli shipped Kullervo/his sister.) Perhaps Lalli wishes for Reynir to roleplay as the brother Lalli never had? Anything with the three of them being okay with this while the entire Known World isn't, and how this comes into play with the current canon events.

▶︎ Mercy Killing
An AU of that suicide, in which Tuuri was more open with Lalli, and her, Lalli, and Reynir going off somewhere where she can lay down and get killed, mercifully and without any pain, from her two trustworthy friends?

▶︎ Mourning a Death
We saw a bit of this in the comic already, but more exploration of Lalli and Reynir grieving over Tuuri. Perhaps the two getting the chance to bond/talk about it?

▶︎ Psychically sensing another's death
Because this was a canon scene. A closer look at the moment Lalli sense Tuuri's death. Did Reynir feel anything at all in the meantime? Perhaps convulsing in pain in the tank and not knowing what was going on?

▶︎ Pyrrhic Victory
Succeeding at getting Tuuri back, but at what cost? Either Reynir and Lalli having become the villains of the story or however else you'd like to take this! <3

▶︎ Sexual Relationship as Unhealthy Coping Mechanism
Either between only Reynir and Lalli or all three characters after the entire ordeal.

▶︎ Underworld Rescue Mission
As several prompts here have alluded to: Reynir and Lalli adventuring to the underworld to get Tuuri from Tuonela. A very dark version of how this could play out would be neat.

▶︎ Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms
Same as the relationship tag, but maybe in other ways as well, such as self-harm, choking oneself, etc.

Year in Hereafter

Requesting: Fic or Art

Where to Find:
Currently active (updates Wednesdays and Fridays.) Free to read online. 245+ pages as of July 28. Available in English. Another webcomic that is based on Finnish lore, specifically the Kalevala (as one of its settings is!) Story will feature the heroes journeying to defeat the Nine Diseases that will lead them to the mother and new ruling mistress of the North, Loviatar. Although still relatively in its early chapters, the canon already has lovely dark moments (not to mention the family secret of the Harmonsuo sucks you right in!) with promises of more to come.

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ Ships I like here: Veeti/Jaakko, Sakari/Mika, Ieva/Sulo, Ieva/OFC, Sulo/Justiina, 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 my above listed DNWs.

Veeti Harmonsuo • Michael Lapintaival & Veeti Harmonsuo • Veeti Harmonsuo/Jaakko Ilmarinen
Feel free to focus on just Veeti, Veeti with Mika during that frightful moment before they are rescued in Kalevala, or while Veeti is unconscious and under Jaakko's watch. There's a delightfully dark canon moment where his spirit gets injured and he cannot wake up/return to the physical world while his spirit needs mending. This canon is still ongoing and still in the early stages of the plot, and even though it's hinted that Veeti will wake up by the end of this chapter, the entire scenario paves the way for so many intriguing dark paths this can go in.

▶︎ Alternative Universe - Steampunk
Adding this because I think it would be so neat to see, what with Jaakko being a smith and Mika with that Final Fantasyesque sword. Perhaps Veeti lost an arm in that spirit world so Jaakko proposes to make a bionic arm for him?

▶︎ Body Horror
It's canon! >:D And I love to see more of that explored either in the spirit world or the physical world.

▶︎ Character Is Dead And Doesn't Know It
Opposite of my Cotard prompt below: Veeti is dead and yet is still up and about with the rest of the characters, completely unaware of his condition.

▶︎ Character Is Like Catnip To Supernatural Beings
Veeti! <3 Something about him during that fateful trip into the spirit world just draws in a whole other crowd towards him.

▶︎ Character's Past Catches Up to Them
We still don't know much about Jaakko. Was he one of the living at one time or one of the decedents of Kalevala? What if it was the former and something from that past comes back to haunt him?

▶︎ Comes Back Wrong
Go all out with this one, and feel free to combine with the below prompt as well. Veeti is awake from that spiritual injury but he's changed and something is amiss.

▶︎ Cotard delusion
Veeti is awake, and all is well. Except, Veeti is dead. He keeps insisting he is, and no one can understand what's happening. A small price to pay for spirit-walking.

▶︎ Force-Feeding
After waking up, Veeti isn't in the mood to eat. But Jaakko was instructed to help him, and he will force-feed him nutrients if he has to.

▶︎ Hemorrhage
For whatever reason, I just think it would be so neat if all of a sudden Veeti begins hemorrhaging in that boat and Mika won't known what to do/panicking, or if the same scenario happens all while Jaakko just looks on in shock.

▶︎ Major Illness, Slow-Killing Illness
Something in the spirit world has infected Veeti's body, and some time after waking up he and/or the others take notice.

▶︎ Nature Which Tries To Eat You
All the juicy tidbits about Hiidenkirnu's swamp, or any other nature where the Nine Diseases lurk and look to harm our heroes.

▶︎ Possessed Victim noncons Victim
Perhaps a kalmahinen possess Veeti's mind to assault an unsuspecting victim, that being either Mika or Jaakko as he dusts up the smithy?

▶︎ Soulmates in Doomed Reincarnation Cycle
See also Reynir/Lalli under Stand Still Stay Silent. Veeti and Jaakko learn they are soulmates but even more, they keep meeting in every life cycle. If you wish to combine this with SSSS (as the other pairing is similar to this in terms of appearance, occupation, and personality) you well may. Perhaps there was some kind of punishment and they try to break this spell? Mika tries to help and fail?

▶︎ Spirit Rape
While vulnerable in the spirit world, a creature finds Veeti's spirit and has its way with him. He can do nothing to stop it.

▶︎ Trapped in otherworld
This is basically Mika and Veeti's situation right now (otherworld being Kalevala) and anything more about this would be sweet.

▶︎ Vengeful Spirits
This seems to describe the sort of Spirits that the Harmonsuo family have dealt with for years. One or more of them steer their attention towards Veeti now what he's in a weakened state.
