Navigation: Likes (Art Likes) | Do Not Wants | General Prompt Inspirations | Fandoms

If you don't see something listed, assume a neutral stance, but you're free to ask about it. I have clearly defined what my DNWs are. :) The general Likes section is huge. I figured this will be a nice reference if you were curious about anything. :) Please don't stress out by the length of this letter. <3

πŸ’€ Do Not Wants:
βˆ’ no additional pairings or canon characters beyond my requested pairings/characters, not even mentions. Exceptions to pairings are background canon pairings if they were established so before the canon's beginning (only exception to that rule: no Ensi/male characters, please.)
βˆ’ absolutely no emotional abuse β€’ domestic abuse β€’ verbal abuse β€’ physical abuse
βˆ’ incest of any sort (parent/child, sibling, cousin, etc)
βˆ’ suicide/suicidal ideation (unless if the suicide is prevented/foiled and the victim is comforted β€’ scenarios used used in a hurt/comfort work is fine especially with lots of comfort after.)
βˆ’ dishonesty between the couple β€’ infidelity β€’ disloyalty β€’ breaking up my couple (arguments are fine; but as long they make up in the end) β€’ humiliation (Note: this entire section does not apply to any ships involving villains. Make it as messed up as you wish and Have Fun! :D )
βˆ’ trauma to the eye/gore β€’ extensive violence β€’ extreme gore of any kind β€’ paragraphs-long descriptions of someone's wound or gore (some graphic violence is fine, but not extensive descriptions)
βˆ’ mpreg β€’ a/b/o β€’ underage β€’ scat
βˆ’ no rape/non-con/dub-con/abuse between canon good characters, requested or otherwise, if they are the culprit. Would prefer, if you are creating a piece with rape/non-con, if the rapist is a known villain or an OC who is intended to be a villain/someone for us to dislike. Some exceptions to the canon good characters rule, but do see my Dark Loves section for more details. :)
βˆ’ please no bashing of religion, spirituality, or any kind of deity
βˆ’ please no character bashing and no vilifying ANY of my requested characters, please.
βˆ’ villains win scenarios. Or, if you have such a situation in the beginning of the work, that's fine so long as they are defeated by the end (not necessarily by death.) Power struggle/powerplay/truce is much preferred over villains win scenario. :)

❣️Trope-y Things I Like:
❉ Ships :: femslash β€’ slash β€’ het β€’ gen β€’ enjoy seeing them all appear in the same story as well (as in, do not mind seeing background ships if they are something I've requested that you could not fit into the forefront of the story or if there are some background femslash in a gen story, etc.)

❉ Relationships :: romantic (getting together, established, dating, engaged, weddings, married life, getting through bumps on the road at any point of knowing each other) β€’ friendships β€’ peaceful families (no turbulent or complicated parent-child relationships, please) β€’ strangers being kind to one another β€’ moments of agape that changes a character in some way
❉ Alternative Universes I like :: cyberpunk and cyborgs β€’ in space β€’ noir detective β€’ historical (any point in human history, but I especially love BC eras, ancient civilizations (Egyptian, Aztecan, Greco-Roman, Canaan) and the 1950s-1990s AD periods) β€’ fork in the road β€’ zombie apocalypse (especially in a Shaun of the Dead style/humor.)

The Genetic Opera β€’ Fairy Tales, Mythologies, & Folklore (any culture around the world)

🌈 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 β€’ kind and tranquil characters getting enraged into action, especially by a cruel injustice β€’ stoic characters cracking around the edges, driven by a love they did not previously believe in or thought they could experience β€’ leader characters questioning themselves β€’ carefree wanderlust characters finding themselves in one cage after another, living during a time when they cannot be free (war, tension, etc) β€’ jokesters who are suffering and sad inside β€’ characters with issues and internal (and external) struggles as high as the Burj Khalifa but still manage to be decent to others β€’ characters learning from their regrets
❉ Awesome things :: deep unwavering loyalty and commitment β€’ witty banter (or just bantering) β€’ a sense of togetherness in the couple (aka, both are into each other) β€’ very close bonds/profoundness β€’ eucatastrophe β€’ 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) β€’ that moment when character realizes they are loved/are shown love β€’ one character rising above the challenge to help someone they love
❉ Interpersonal :: unconventional relationships β€’ dynamic and unusual relationships that aren't the most peaceful or perfect but are nonetheless profoundly close β€’ realistic relationships where they make mistakes but they try to patch things up. Sense of poignancy in their affection β€’ prefer established relationships over pining/unrequited, but getting together isn't bad or a character reflecting on how things were before they got together β€’ 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 β€’ learning a skill or improving on what they already know β€’ characters at work, their relationship to their job and how they feel about it β€’ 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 β€’ one character doing something to trigger an ASMR response from a character β€’ scratching sound of pencil or pen on paper β€’ carding fingers through hair β€’ whispering softly into the other's ear β€’ character listening to another's breathing in their ear or the sound of their heart beating β€’ sound of fabric/running hand over clothes β€’ watching someone paint or doing something slowly or contemplatively that the other (the beholder) just watches and relaxes as they do so β€’ repeated stim-like movements that are relaxing such as comfortingly rubbing hand over arm while soothing a person β€’ (note: many examples of ASMR triggers on YouTube)
❉ Hairplay :: carding fingers through hair β€’ shampooing/washing β€’ brushing, braiding, styling β€’ one character giving another a haircut (perhaps just a trim! :'D ) β€’ can tie in to ASMR above β€’ bonus beard-play for any dwarves in your work
❉ Ghosts :: characters telling ghost stories β€’ encounter with ghosts β€’ a story that explores a ghost story from a local legend or folklore β€’ a character sudden experiences something from the POV of a ghost β€’ stranger things such as where an entire building or object feels very much alive and haunted as though it has gone sentient β€’ 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) β€’ characters dancing to a song β€’ 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 β€’ pyrrhic victories β€’ hard battles with a strong sense of accomplishment and purpose afterwards β€’ bright beautiful dawns after the darkest nights β€’ difficult decisions, or situations with no easy solutions β€’ having to make very painful choices β€’ 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 β€’ 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 β€’ same goes for textual ghosts and unnamed canon characters

🌏 Worldbuilding Elements I Like:
❉ Settings :: abandoned places β€’ old ruins, temples, places which only legends remember β€’ revisiting a place mentioned only in passing in canon or a place glossed over previously β€’ mountains (climbing them or going inside) β€’ by rivers and other bodies of water β€’ outer space β€’ tombs and graveyards β€’ quiet suburban neighborhoods where there's more happening than what meets the eye β€’ places beyond the canon's map β€’ places the characters have not yet visited β€’ factories & other industrial spaces (especially abandoned ones) β€’ regions unexplored β€’ 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 β€’ 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 β€’ 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. β€’ 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 β€’ 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 β€’ expanding on fictional cultures in a work, especially those we do not get to see much of (such as Avari tribes, dwarves, NΓΊmenor.)
❉ 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. :)

πŸ–€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) or an OC (such as a wicked kade.) Please, not someone who the character knows and trusts in canon. Work can focus on the trauma and/or the aftermath.
❉ Torture :: Not explicitly 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. Some graphic violence and description is okay.
❉ Hurt/comfort :: already talked about above, but for darker tones, whump and "get" scenarios β€’ 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) β€’ one partner being forced to hurt another lest both's lives are endangered β€’ eating disorders (and disordered eating); refusal to eat β€’ victim of harassment/bullying
❉ Death :: Exploration of canon character death β€’ non-canon character death is fine if it serves the purpose of the work and was not used as a form of character bashing β€’ exploration of the aftermath of a canon death β€’ 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 β€’ characters caught in a horrific situations they cannot get out of β€’ 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.)

🎨 Art-Related Things I Love:
❉ Forms :: traditional β€’ digital β€’ mixed media and "cut-out" styles (this is a good example of what I mean :) ) β€’ comics β€’ single illustrations β€’ scenery landscapes with my requested characters as part of the scene
❉ Black and white mediums :: charcoal β€’ crosshatching β€’ pencil shading β€’ inked (especially when it plays on shadows and crosshatching) β€’ black/white/shades of grey digital colors or paints
❉ Color mediums :: digital art β€’ acrylics β€’ watercolors β€’ oils β€’ colored pencils β€’ Copic markers β€’ screen printing/vector art
❉ Color schemes :: earth tones (greens/blues/browns) β€’ jewel tones β€’ sepia/shades of browns/neutrals β€’ faded/washed out β€’ vibrant β€’ iridescent hues and "cosmic" themes β€’ things that invoke autumn vibes β€’ black/white/greys (look above) β€’ pastel hues β€’ monochromatic schemes or mixing complementary colors with or without black/white
❉ Subjects/settings :: forests β€’ dreamscapes or dreams β€’ homes or marketplace or someplace the character(s) loves β€’ downtown or in their village β€’ someplace new for the character and/or abandoned locations (see Worldbuilding : Settings for more details) β€’
❉ Clothing and appearance :: focus on folds in dresses, coats, tunics, etc β€’ details around collars, hems, cuffs, especially if there are cultural meaning or significance to these areas of the clothing β€’ elaborate hairstyles and clothing β€’ drawing inspirations from ancient civilizations (any of your choice)
❉ Accessories :: Vibrant jewelry and details on each gem β€’ interesting details of any advertisements or posters behind character β€’ 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) β€’ sitting on top of a stack of books β€’ thick ancient tomes β€’ entire shelves of books β€’ books on the nightstand β€’ character reading a book in the bathtub (with more books scattered nearby (inspired by)) β€’ massive libraries (either as backdrop of your artwork or as part of a comic story) β€’ 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 β€’ opposites (such as highlighting polar elements of two characters and making a piece out of that) β€’ sun and moon β€’ day and night β€’ earth and cosmos/heavens β€’ the five elements (earth, air/wind, fire, water, spirit) β€’ seven chakras β€’ 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! :)
❉ 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) β€’ 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 β€’ 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!) :: β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯β€’β™₯
❉ 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.)

πŸ’‹Kink & Smut Things I Like:
❉ My biggest loves in smut :: hand-holding during lovemaking β€’ intense emotions β€’ profound levels of trust β€’ getting a strong sense of how they feel about one another β€’ body positions so the lovers can kiss, hold each other, etc β€’ 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 β€’ penis β€’ stap-on, etc.
❉ Anal :: by penis or strap-on, any position is fine
❉ Bodily fluids (semen, vaginal juices); bodily fluids play β€’ watersports (watching partner pee, holding urine in hand or feel of urine down thighs, etc. Would prefer nothing in mouth, though.)
❉ Fingering or stroking β€’ stimulation of the clitoris β€’ 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 β€’ frottage β€’ grinding of the hips β€’ 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) β€’ body worship β€’ undressing partner β€’ masturbating in front of partner (as a means of developing more trust and intimacy between a couple) β€’ cuddling after sex β€’ gentle/lazy/sleepy sex β€’ naked cuddling β€’ riding partner (either with cock or a strap-on) β€’ sucking fingers of lover (perhaps after they've fingered or stroked them)
❉ Situational :: first times (in general or new sexual act) β€’ sex for warmth β€’ "Thank God we're alive" sex β€’ sex in front of a mirror
❉ Sex in a smithy :: sex inside a smithy with a blacksmith character (location kink) β€’ using objects found in a smithy for kinky fun
❉ Visual delights :: gripping onto the bedsheets β€’ bedsheets twisting around them (or leg) or one of the partners β€’ 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 β€’ a little bit of rough sex, especially if it's in-character β€’ a little bit of bantering as well (again, if it fits the characters) β€’ a normally-stoic character losing control from the passion
❉ Voice kink :: soft whisperings in lover's ear β€’ the sound of their breathing or moans driving partner closer to climax β€’ breath on their skin or ears

Stand Still Stay Silent

Requesting: Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen β€’ Fic, Art

Biggest loves of my life (besides my own works, that is!) Lalli's introduction of Reynir was so endearing, a man who captivated Lalli in the middle of a dream, which soon turned into a nightmare as Lalli's attention was steered away from danger. It was no wonder why he didn't like Reynir after that when they did meet in the waking world, but slowly he's coming back around to Reynir; and seeing that it's Lalli always seeking Reynir for help warms my heart. :')

❧ Magical Powers Awaken When You Meet Your Soulmate
This is totally what happened in canon, right? :D Reynir showed virtually no signs at all of being a mage until he met Lalli, so I wonder if something in that meeting must have triggered Reynir's magical powers. Perhaps in SSSS-verse, while some mages are born so, others don't find out until they meet their soulmates, (and those mages tend to be the most powerful mages who ever lived, eh? ;) )

❧ Soulbonded to Someone Who's Lost Their Soul / You Can't Die As Long As Your Soulmate Is Alive
Digging into Norse mythology which explores the subject of the hamingja. Something happens to make Lalli lose his Luonto, perhaps for good this time, and is growing weaker until Reynir offers to give him his hamingja. But by doing so, their souls bond forever.

The second prompt kind of relates to the first, if you wish to combine them since their souls are entwined, or simply have that if one of them is close to death, the other is not far behind.

❧ Dreaming of Soulmate / Soulmates Share Dreams
Is this so not what happened? :D Lalli legit dreamt Reynir before meeting him. It would certainly explain page 272; "Sigh...this is my soulmate? He's dreamy...sigh." I'm also really fond of this trope because, for some time, the same angelic face kept visiting me in my dreams. (gee, any wonder why I love this ship so much? XD)

And for the second tag: Of course, I cannot NOT choose this one for them! :D As mages they already get to interact and visit each other's Havens, but give me a little something extra and special. Soulmates get to do more in dreams. Get to have normal dreams like us, but it's happening in both their minds. Let it be odd, abstract dreams. Mundane dreams. Nightmares even. I don't care! :D

❧ Societal Stigma Against Soulmates Being Romantic
This falls under a speculation that there may be some prejudice against Icelandic and Finnish mages marrying since their magics are inherently different. I want to see Reynir and Lalli fight against that, even when it seems not one single mage approves of them.

❧ Having A Soulmate Is Simultaneously The Best And Worst Thing That Can Happen To A Person
Oh, my sweet Goddess. This tag is Reynir/Lalli to a T. All I can say is...bring out the humor for this one! :D Show me how much Reynir makes Lalli feel good...and how much Lalli also wants to slap Reynir (and not in a kinky way either. Though sometimes that too.)

❧ Soulmates Die If They Fall In Love With Each Other
I LOVE this tag so much, OMG, and I can so see this happening in the comic right now. It would explain Lalli's initial fascination with Reynir, going so far as to think back on him while alone, and then the sudden coldness towards him when they *do* meet in the waking world. How would he explain that to the foolish good-hearted mage that they should not fall in love, not when he can't stop going to Reynir for help with runes, not when Reynir is just so...damn...kind?

❧ Unrequited Soulmates Causes Hanahaki Disease
This trope is fascinating. I don't know how plausible it is in the so-called fictional "real" world, but I can so see it being a disease that manifests and could strangled a love-suffering mage in the dreamworld. Be it Reynir or Lalli whose feelings are unrequited (perhaps combined with the prompt above, if you can somehow combine them? A misunderstanding where Lalli *thinks* falling in love will kill him, but it's not; it's the unrequitedness), they find themselves cough petals until they are suffocating to death, unless if their soulmate returns their love. Imagine the waters of Lalli's haven clogging with those petals. :3

❧ Soulmates Across Multiple Universes
This goes with the fact that their creator, Minna Sundberg, has also placed the characters in her new project, City of Hunger. A completely new story, new setting, and new adventure. The character themselves, while looking (and seem to retain the same personality) will have different roles and different occupations. For now all we know is that Reynir is a medic in this reality. I for one know I will be shipping them like wild in this series! :D Also, the idea of soulmates reincarnating and finding one another again and again has got to be my oldest romance-related trope that I adore (thanks, Sailor Moon, for everything you gave me when I was a wee dwarfling.) So for this, anything about the fact that these two are constantly finding each other in every life would be love. Make more realities too if you so wish! :) And if you wish to go for the original meaning of the term soulmates, then have them learn something important during their lives together, and have the two travel together between each new world/lifetime.

Requesting: ElemmΓ­rΓ«/ÍrimΓ« (Lalwen), AnairΓ«/Fingolfin, Gildor Inglorion/Maglor β€’ Fic, Art

Tolkien. β™₯︎ As you can gather from my AO3 handle, Middle-earth is a major love for me and has been for quite some time! These three pairings I've chosen are ones I think the soulmate tropes would be especially fun to see explored. :D As much has been written about elves and their spirits, I would love to see that all come into play. Sorry for grouping the pairings and my prompts like this. You don't have to write about all three pairings. I'll be delighted for just one! :D The format is this way simply because I didn't want to rewrite the same prompt three times, since all the tags/tropes and their respective prompts pretty much apply to all of the pairings. Thanks! <3

❧ Coping With Soulmate's Death / Haunted By Soulmate's Ghost
Either AnairΓ« hears of Fingolfin's death or senses it/feels it in her heart, being his soulmate. Same with ElemmΓ­rΓ« if you decide to kill off Lalwen while she's battling beside her kin in Beleriand. What happens then? If being estranged from their soulmates wasn't bad enough, split due to a terrible war, now grave news come of their passing. What do widowed soulmates do? While we don't know what happened to Maglor, perhaps Gildor does? Sensed the passing of his long-suffering love? Or, he has long been haunted by the ghost of the fair-voiced one by the sea, and his travels were partly to distant himself from it. Or perhaps to follow it? I would love to see AnairΓ« and ElemmΓ­rΓ« also dealing with the ghost of their beloved. <3 Just imagine AnairΓ« trying to sleep and feeling Fingolfin lean over the bed, or ElemmΓ­rΓ« feeling a hand over hers as she plays her harp.

❧ Dreaming of Soulmate / Soulmates Share Dreams
The characters had at some point dreamt of their soulmate before meeting them. (YES I LOVE THIS TROPE SO, SO MUCH!), and bonus if it's someone they had never, ever met before and could not possibly know who it is and yet, upon waking up, they feel so refreshed and happy, as though seeing them alone just makes them feel alive. And a little weirded out, like the face is strangely familiar...although they can't possibly know this person.

Second tag: All of these couple have been estranged. Two of the three lived on different continents, and the other couple, I imagine, may not have been together often (Gildor refers to himself as being of the House of Finrod, so he must have lived with Finrod, not Maglor.) Nonetheless, these couples may have willed themselves to meet in dreams, the only way they could ever share the same space again.

❧ Having A Soulmate Is Simultaneously The Best And Worst Thing That Can Happen To A Person
I always love a trope like this. Love is incredibly complex, and I can see how this fits for these three pairings. The tremendous joy of being together and then the terrible heartbreaks what with Fingolfin and Lalwen leaving their lovers, and Maglor and Gildor splitting while in Beleriand. Or it need not even be something this drastic. Show me some of the lighter side of this dichotomy. Example: their telepathic link may be stronger than non-soulmates, but is it really that much better? :)

❧ Injuries Transfer to Soulmate
I suppose this is one way to know when your soulmate dies! Poor AnairΓ« or ElemmΓ­rΓ« looking down their front and seeing blood, or Gildor near the end of the First Age panicking when the palm of his hand burns with an intensity unmatched by any other.

❧ Soulmates Create Better Art
This is me getting a little sappy here, but elves are just so spiritual and like to put a bit of themselves in their creations. ;) Perhaps after Fingolfin and Lalwen, AnairΓ« couldn't dance as well as she did before and ElemmΓ­rΓ« could not write poetry quite like her old ones. And Maglor finds he needs Gildor for his music to feel alive.

❧ Soulmate's Touch Can Turn Dead Soulmate Back Alive but at a Price
The surviving partner realize they have this trait and do so against Mandos's advice. They end up regretting it (what the consequence is is up to you.)

❧ Told to Kill Soulmate As a Test of Loyalty
Ouch. <3 I kind of grinned evilly when I saw this. Okay, I love and adore FΓ«anor, so this is not a slight against him. Emotions were running high after the Darkening of Valinor and no one was thinking clearly. With that in mind: FΓ«anor orders for Maglor, Fingolfin, and even Lalwen to all kill their soulmates to prove their loyalty to him only before they follow him to Endor. Kinslaying was one thing, but killing one's own soulmate? (Bonus if you take this some route where one tries to hide their soulmate and pretends they had done the deed.)

❧ Universe Pulls Soulmates Together
Tolkien believed in the eucatastrophe, or the sudden favorable resolution to a story. I've given quite a bit of sad tags here, and the Silmarillion in general is sad. So...let's give these soulmates a happy ending, somehow. :D

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
β€’ In terms of what versions of legendarium canon I like, I'm really flexible as a reader. :)

Year in Hereafter

Requesting: Veeti Harmonsuo/Jaakko Ilmarinen β€’ Fic, Art

Ahhh! <3 I fell in love with Veeti the moment we met him in the comic, and Jaakko's little first appearance ("Wot?") won me over as well. The comic went on hiatus just as the story was picking up, so there isn't much else to go on. Right now, Veeti is in a magic-coma after battling some spirits, and he's in Jaakko's bed, who isn't too entirely pleased with that. Sakari and Mika left with Ieva. The comic looks like will go off hiatus by the time the collection goes live, so feel free to either discard anything here and write based on new canon info or just keep going off from here. :D I also apologize this section may seem a little short. The canon is a bit on the small size at the moment.

❧ Soulmates Across Multiple Universes
Mmm, I love this trope so much! Veeti and Jaakko appear in two other works: Small Trolls and Tistow (those two, I believe, happen to be on the same timeline.) Same as my Reynir/Lalli prompt above, I'd love to see them being soulmates in all those realities, and especially if they learn something new and vital in each lifetime and also travel together between worlds/new life (as per the tradition.) In fact, they do share a bit of physical and personality resemblance to Reynir and Lalli, don't you think? If you happen to be familiar with both canons and want to try this you may combine all that and say that SSSS/City of Hunger/YiH/Small Trolls/Tistow/anything else are all the universes these lovebirds have met in! :D

❧ Soulbonded By Saving A Life / Soulmate's Kiss Can Cure All Wounds
Veeti's condition kind of reminds me of Lalli's situation earlier in SSSS where he was resting after having lost his Luonto. It doesn't seem like this is the case, but there does seem to be something bothering Veeti. Perhaps Jaakko finally becomes aware to it and tries to help him, and their souls end up getting bonded? Or, going for a true love's kiss trope, Jaakko's annoyance ebbs away and he finds the sleeping mage quite handsome and kisses him, healing away the hurt that had caused him to get into this state in the first place.

❧ Soulbonded to Someone Who's Lost Their Soul
Going with the above, perhaps a part of Veeti's soul was lost, but an interference from Jaakko bonds them? Or perhaps more humorously, as a punishment for slacking from his duties, Sulo forges their bond. :D (I do love my smiths!)

❧ Having A Soulmate Is Simultaneously The Best And Worst Thing That Can Happen To A Person
Because I don't think either Jaakko nor Veeti ever expected to ever, EVER want nor end up with a soulmate! XD And you know, having a soulmate is kinda nice. Real nice (the sex especially.) Only not all the time. Sometimes it can be real damn aggravating. Play along with that any way you wish! :D

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
β€’ Mika/Sakari, feel free to include Ieva and Sulo too! Also, if you can somehow work in Tytti/Erwil, I would love that too! :D

β€’ There is nothing here other than my general DNWs from the top of this letter.

Artwork by blacklionshiro
Voltron: Legendary Defender

Oh, my dear writer, how much has this canon stolen my heart! Everything about this series is just so dear to me, from the gorgeous colors to the characters and the character arcs and the writing and how the characters relate to each other, their struggles, growing in the series, and working together and working out their issues like the wonderful fond family that they are and WE'VE ONLY GONE THROUGH TWO SEASONS OF THIS OMG AND -- oh dear, this is a dear author/artist letter, not a squee post! XD I ended up having to split this section into two parts, since the tags didn't apply to both pairings seamlessly. :)

Requesting: Allura/Haggar β€’ Fic, Art

❧ Enemy Is Their Soulmate
What could be any better trope than THIS? :D Allura has faced Haggar twice now, and after the second one, she learns that the wicked witch Haggar is her soulmate. Cue a meltdown from our beloved space princess. Did Haggar know? If she had, how did this affect her betrayal of Altea? Or could Alfor have possibly known and what was his reason for ensuring Allura stays alive (trusting her to save Galra through love and magic?) And how will Allura handle this, knowing that Alteans who are soulmates cannot and should not be parted?

❧ Soulmates Die If They Fall In Love With Each Other
This idea sort of branched out of the above. Perhaps Haggar wasn't so bad but knew something that Allura didn't? What if something that began as a Keep-Allura-Alive-By-Concealing-Your-Feelings snowballed into the situation we see now, with revelations that at some points Haggar was even trying to save the Paladins under the guise of destroying them, but Haggar will never confess to any of that. So much as confessing her feelings would lead to death for them both.

❧ Soulbond Witchcraft
For a more twisted flavor, Haggar does something to bond their souls. Perhaps as a means to get to the Lions, and I would love something where both her and Allura were fighting with every drop of their magic as well as heated passions, with Allura being the only thing shielding Haggar and all of the empire from getting to the Lions, the Paladins, and Voltron. I just want to see magical princess versus ruthless witch go at it, in every sense of that term. :3

❧ Soulmate Telepathy
Soulmate Alteans share a telepathic link. This is also observed with the Paladins, which is what makes their bonds so special. Imagine Allura's distress when she begins feeling Haggar in her thoughts. What if she tries to give Haggar a taste of her own medicine and invade hers? :3

❧ Soulmates Share Dreams
Piggybacking on the idea that Alteans share thoughts, Allura and Haggar find themselves in the same dream realm, but maybe with an added twist. Allura dreams of a beautiful Altean woman and doesn't realize this is how Haggar used to look (this is totally inspired by this manip of Haggar as an Altean (who I thought looked utterly gorgeous, but I may be a little biased here, hee.)) Take this in any direction you wish. <3

❧ You Can't Die As Long As Your Soulmate Is Alive
Oh, much to both's dismay, I'm sure! ;D Allura realizes that she cannot die as long as the powerful Haggar is alive, which may be comforting in that she knows her enemies cannot end her life. But it also means Haggar cannot die. The other option? Get Haggar to fall in love with her and turn against the Galra Empire. Haggar, meanwhile, realizes she's invincible so long as the princess is alive. But that also means if the Galra kill Allura then she might die too. To everyone's shock, she saves Allura.

Requesting: Keith/Shiro β€’ Fic, Art

I actually enjoy any ship combination of the team Voltron, so I'm pretty lenient when it comes to reading fic for this fandom, but I was really drawn to the dynamics of these two in the canon in particular. Also seeing how they'll deal with being soulmates would be quite interesting, don't you think? XD Feel free to use either just one prompt or mix and match! <3

❧ Siblings are Romantic Soulmates
Yes, I know they are not canonically siblings, so it may be odd to select this. You can ignore this prompt and skip to the others, or keep reading. :) This is basing off a fan speculation that the two may be related, and I must admit, I loved the idea. Not only that, but that, despite the fact I enjoy the ship, the idea of them being related didn't bother me one bit. I'm even thrilled at the idea, so consider this my one giant exception to my No Incest DNW. :D That being said: play with this theory however you wish! <3 Did they find out before getting together but during the courting/flirting stage? Did they find out after having slept together? Their reaction to that familial tie along with the revelation that they are also soulmates? (and if you wish to include any other soulmate trope that you enjoy, you are more than free to do so!)

❧ Secret Soulmates
Shiro and Keith must keep their soulmate status a secret for whatever reason: to protect one another and the entire team from Galra, or because soulmates are forbidden or seen as something shameful in their society (perhaps in human society or Galra/Altean or an alien planet they are visiting?) Or perhaps it was Shiro's idea, since he's worried it could lead to him losing Keith. What happens if the secret does slip out? And they are captured? And all the traumatic memories of Shiro's past returns?

❧ Soulmates Die If They Fall In Love With Each Other
Because I want to keep tormenting these boys. <3 Their bond is intense, but falling in love will prove detriment to either one or both of them, and Shiro will not endanger the team because of their special bond. Perhaps the real reason why he went missing at the end of Season 2? I would love if this actually backfires; you know the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Keith certainly finds himself loving Shiro more and more, first when Shiro was imprisoned, and now after Season 2, and unable to keep his emotions in check, he falls ill.

❧ Unrequited Soulmates Causes Hanahaki Disease
Your choice on whose feelings are being unrequited here, but I was thinking that a certain alien planet may contain spores that, if inhaled, would trigger the "love disease." Or it's a little curse Haggar brewed up after learning that the two are Soulmates. Whatever the case may be, I'm totally here for the little beautiful body horror and wanting that affection to become romantic love. If you wish to mix a bit of the above prompt with this to turn the whole situation into a Catch-22, go right ahead. :3

❧ Told to Kill Soulmate As a Test of Loyalty
Ahhh! <3 I love these sort of scenarios. What would put them in such situation? Whose loyalty would be getting tested? Does Keith leave the Team Voltron one night to go looking for Shiro, realizes it's a trap, and then must fight Shiro in a gladiator-type setting? Or must be killed by Shiro? Or a real twist: Shiro telling Keith to kill him as a means to test Keith to see how much he trusts Shiro and willing to obey each of his commands.

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
β€’ With this fandom, I'm really flexible when it comes to pairings. Feel free to include anything else in terms of background/side/past/etc pairings. I adore Team Voltron. I adore the Blade of Marmora. Give it to me all. I will love it. :)

Do Not Wants:
β€’ Hmm, nothing else that doesn't hit against my DNWs at the top of this letter (with, of course, that one exception scenario to my incest DNW. :D If you make Shrio and Keith brothers, I will be happy! :D )

If you've read all the way to the bottom, then all of my love to you! That was quite a bit, I admit, but there were quite a few tags I was excited over! :D Hope something here inspires! Best of luck and enjoy, dear creator! πŸ’ž
