Dear Rare Pair 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

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

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

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

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

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

💋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

Requesting: Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen • Fic, Art

Oh, my heart! ♥︎ 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.

Absolutely anything will fill me with great happiness here, no matter if you wish to follow along with the comic updates and figure out where to fit in a romance in the busy schedule or go completely canon divergent AU (as most fic for this ongoing webcomic ends up being! XD) Set them during the mission or after, or in a future mission or years from now. Lalli visiting (or coming to live with) Reynir in Iceland, or Reynir visiting Lalli in Finland. The two working together, or learning their languages, or learning to trust/be with each other.

Or perhaps you enjoy some suspense and hurt/comfort, such as Reynir coming to Lalli's aid after he was injured during a scouting or mission and Reynir alone witnessed it during a dream? Reynir risking his own life to head out into the Silent World to locate and save the injured mage, and needing to trust in his own magical abilities to keep any ghosts/trolls/giants away?

Or perhaps some tragedy strikes and they find themselves separated from the crew (some of whom may or may not have been killed?) Having to work through language barrier and cooperating with their magic as well as reaching a dock to be picked up in time, all while having to survive a line of trolls and giants, and not to have Reynir get bitten, not to mention a race against time if Tuuri is with them.

Honestly, I'll love it any of these or any of your own ideas! :D

I just love them, love the fact Lalli was the first to see Reynir among the crew, going to Reynir to command him to make runes, yet can't seem to get closer (despite showing signs of being lonely, and at this point in time, definitely in need of a friend what with Tuuri's condition.) The complexity of this relationship is a major draw for me, and especially because they are mages of two different backgrounds. There's just so much potential, so feel free to do wherever your heart takes you. The mages and magic are the main draw for me in this series, so play with that any way you wish! You have full reign here! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Reynir keeping Lalli company under the bunk bed
❧ Kissing, with perhaps Norse runes for lovers in the background
❧ Cuddling up in either's haven
❧ Reynir trying to draw up runes to match the effects Lalli drew on pieces of paper (I love Lalli's art skillz.)
❧ Either in Iceland (Reynir's farm, surrounded by sheep, or against some nice Icelandic scenery), or in Finland, perhaps in Lalli's apartment?

+ I ship everything in this series, so you are free to include any other ships on the side (or focus on any ship in poly situations if you're focusing on just a couple in a scene or something.) :) I also love all of the friendships and dynamics and all the teams like Blade of Marmora and just...yeah, whatever you do with this, you cannot go wrong. I would see a picture of Slav on Tumblr and start to get all squee, so...yup. XD <3
+ If you like to write Pidge as a trans girl, that's more than fine with me! :D (same goes with writing anyone as trans here!)
+ Also! Feel free to play with any theories and fan favorite AUs if you like! I'm pretty open to *everything* here, so you can't go wrong! :D
+ ALSO! I realize that the deadline for this exchange will be after the release of Season 3. If anything from Season 3 inspires you in any way for any my requested pairings, even if it ends up tossing away any of my own prompts, GO WITH YOUR AWESOME NEW IDEA INSTEAD BECAUSE TRUST ME I WILL BE MOST PLEASED! :D I guarantee you I will be mega ecstatic! :D Eeeeeek! 💙❤️🖤💚💛

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing else to add to my DNWs. :D

Dear creator, I have never, ever encountered a crew/teamship that I adored as much as these folks! <3 I honestly cannot even tell you who my favorite character is. I have none. No, that is not right. THEY ALL ARE MY FAVORITES! Each one of them bring something different to the table that's just so precious and unique and without them it just wouldn't be Voltron. 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 found 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! :D Needless to say, I'm very open with whatever you wish to do here! :) You literally cannot go wrong here! I've seen all the AUs and fanons and theories, and I'm open to anything! I'm here to have a merry fun time! :D

Requesting: Allura/Haggar • Fic, Art
Potentially Dark Ship. UNF! The first pairing I fell in love with in this fandom, and till this day my thirst for Haggar knows now bounds. :3 Absolutely anything will delight me here. I just loved seeing badass most powerful witch Haggar locked in battle with the magical Allura -- oh, my heart! Anything about them butting heads and smashing their faces together in some hurried, angry, rough love/hatesex would send me to Cloud Nine. <3 I want to see a magic showdown. I want to see these two powerful women at each other's throats, and then maybe forced to rely on one another in some way or another?

What is Haggar's deal? With the news that Haggar is Altean, how does that impact Allura? Does she seek out Haggar to find out more about her? Or perhaps some event pulls the two women together, forcing them to work together? Perhaps something is required of Haggar to use Allura so she captures the Princess, keeping her alive to everyone's shock? Honestly, I'll be most delighted with anything.

Perhaps Haggar seduces Allura by coming into her dreams and showing Allura her Altean self? (and if you want some visual inspiration for that, I really love this take of Altaen Haggar, but I may be biased. Yum. :3 )

Art-specific requests:
❧ This is such a yin/yang ship, don't you think? Anything highlighting that would be neat, either in their styles of magic/power, the way they are dressed, how they are posing in relation to each other, etc.
❧ A mostly naked Allura under Haggar who is pleasuring her as she tries to get information out of her
❧ Or reversing the roles with Allura having the upper hand and forcing Haggar to pleasure or kiss her. (Haggar on her knees. OMG *fans self*)
❧ In any kind of fairytale AU that features a witch, such as Haggar presenting Allura with an apple.
❧ Kisses (rough and violent, maybe with some bloodplay even), or if you want something lighter: art playing on their height difference (such as Allura bending over to kiss Haggar despite being handcuffed like in Season 1?)

Allura/Coran/Shiro/Keith/Pidge/Lance/Hunk • Fic, Art (Polydins + Allura + Coran = the OT7! :D)
Allura/Shiro/Keith/Pidge/Lance/Hunk • Fic, Art (Polydins+Allura! 💖)
Shiro/Keith/Pidge/Lance/Hunk • Fic, Art (Polydins! \0/ )

I'm combining these three poly ships under the same section because it got to the point where I wasn't sure where to put each prompt! So assume that any prompt here can be interchanged. You are free to change around the characters as you see fit. :) (and, of course, I ship EVERYONE, all ships, and pairings, and all poly/threesomes/moresomes too. You are also free to include scenes of pairings that were too large for this fest (like Shiro/Keith or Lance/Keith) as long as they don't become the main focus and stray too far from the spirit of the exchange! :D So you have all the leeway with this! Enjoy!)

What I want from this: honestly, what we're getting already with the series, but with them all in a relationship with everyone else in the team! \0/ Say Allura and Coran have the Paladins put on those mind-melding devices again so they can practice forming Voltron (perhaps it's part of some regular exercise or just for some extra team-building thing), but the Paladins decide to instead have virtual copies of themselves all engaging in some smutty fun right there before everyone, just to give Allura and Coran a little thrill. :D Or, just anything, really. I'm so in love with how everyone is a true team and found family of sorts for one another and I want that all highlighted, but with romance thrown in. :) Every member being super supportive of one another and open to giving kisses and massages and some sexual intimacy after a battle. Perhaps one of them gets badly injured and the rest are there for them?

Or if you want something a little darker, the team working together to get out alive after being captured or having to witness one or more of them being brutalized (tormented, raped, anything you decide on.) Perhaps one or more of them are captured by the Galra Empire/hostage situation and the others are on a rescue mission? Or one/more of them is struck/stranded/injured and the others are trying to locate them in this vast, vast universe (if it's a Paladin needing rescue, having someone use the lost Paladin's Lion to find them would be so, so sweet!)

Or a happy reunion fic! Perhaps they all find Shiro again, and they decide to each take turns letting him know just how much they love him? Shiro receiving personalized intimacy from each of his beloved crew/team/found family! :3 You can use this same premise but with the idea of the entire team taking turns showering a, say, injured teammate or someone who looks a little sad (Corangst, anyone? Perhaps Allura and the Paladins plan a special day for Coran on his birthday?)

Or, how about the Paladins introduce Allura to the Pocky Game? :D They break off into three teams (Coran referees? Or he ends up playing...maybe even with Kolivan? :D) Anyhow, they get into teams, and because Allura loves the taste of Pocky so much, she winds up kissing a number of her beloved Paladins! :D <3 Bonus for competition between Pidge and Lance because they both want to kiss Allura? (although, God, I want to see them smash faces with one another too! XD)

I can honestly go on forever with the ideas here. :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ A scene of all of them cuddled up together in one giant bed? :D (not necessarily smutty, but I wouldn't say no to that either.)
❧ Utena-esque styled drawing similar to this! Perhaps while all suited up? :D Bonus if the Paladins' (and Allura's) suits are in various stages of undress, or someone is, say, reaching under their shirt or something. If 5-6-7 is too many to fit in, I will not complain at all if you go with any threesome or foursome, or split into groups of three/four spanned against more than one image, only if you're fine with that.
❧ Beach edition! :D It's really, really warm over where I'm at right now, and I'd love to see our beloved team all decked out on the beach, but with a romantic twist! Maybe they're cuddling up, some kissing under a big umbrella, sharing a book (Allura teaching Pidge Altean?, Coran and Lance testing the beach's water together?) :D Ah, there's so much you can do here! <3
❧ Okay, this is turning into an inside joke thanks to my Silmarillion requests: Shiro and Allura bench-pressing their beloveds! Maybe it becomes a competition?
❧ The team washing up together. Either in a big, big bath (An alien planet has a Turkish bath? Or one is found in the Castle), or in robes but styling one another's hair!

Requesting: Coran/Kolivan • Fic, Art

Oh, my heart! <3 :') The tiniest ship here. So tiny it's barely a speck in the night sky. :'D Coran sees his younger colleagues all breaking off into couples (any combinations you like! Poly is great too!), and he's happy for them. Love will keep them strong and united. But Coran is alone. And lonely. His special someone is a person he cannot go back to, someone buried 10,000 years away. But while working with Kolivan Coran rediscovers a purpose and a joy that he hadn't known for some time. Kolivan, meanwhile, sees past the humor and the silly puns, and sees an Altean who has lost so much. In the act of fighting against Zarkon, the two grow closer. :)

I don't know what else to say here, really. This idea sprung up suddenly one day, and I'm so enamored by it! But, there's not even a pond for this adorable little toyship to sail in! So ANYTHING here, really, will make me quite pleased! Angst, hurt/comfort, fluff, smut, you name it, I cherish it! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ Coran tending to Kolivan's injuries after a battle with the Galra Empire.
❧ A heart to heart while everyone else is awake, such as the two studying the cosmos together, cuddling up against a large windowpane?
❧ Anything else, really. I just want to see Corivan exist. :)

Requesting: Hunk/Shay • Fic, Art

This ship is just so SOFT and CUTE! :') Shay asked Allura if Hunk was with her during Season 2, which makes me think that Shay must still be thinking about him (and him her! :') considering that he wanted to go there and not to the Welbrum ), and it makes me wonder if we'll get the chance to see Shay again some day. I'd love for them to meet again! If Season 3 does not deliver that, then...well, that's why we're here! \0/

Absolutely anything here would be most loved. I just want to see them being adorable. Perhaps a missing moment after the episode left off in "Rebirth"? Hunk getting a chance to revisit and bringing in some sweet-smelling flowers for Shay? Or perhaps Shay is needed in another planet and she gets to join our team in the Castle for some time! :D Which of course means more Hunk/Shay moments!

Or you can also bring in the sad. Perhaps her brother still having doubts and getting in the way of her being more part of the outside world? Or perhaps they are attacked and either Hunk or Shay get injured while trying to protect the other?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Hunk and Shay enjoying the sunrise/sunset, moonlight, any kind of beautiful sky cosmic phenomenon together! <3
❧ Hunk presenting Shay with alien flowers! :D And Shay doing something adorable with them! Does she eat them? Wear them on her head? Place them on Hunk's head? Put them in a stew for them to eat? :D
❧ Based on the whump idea, Hunk having to remain on Shay's planet and being fed broth by her. I think that's kind of cute. :)

Requesting: Thace/Ulaz • Fic, Art

Oh, lordy, have I fallen hard for this pairing! <3 Any tales from these sketches as inspiration would be amazing. What was it like, being of the Blade of Marmora in the Galra Empire? Did they have moments where they could not handle seeing someone get tormented because it was against their own morals? Perhaps a scene of one comforting the other? Or them getting into a philosophical discussion on the rights other peoples of the universe have on their own lands and governing their own peoples as they see fit without the Galra controlling them? Ulaz had mentioned in S2E3 that the Galra had believed having their empire expand would bring stability; did this mean that before the empire, there were some planets with oppressive governments the Galra (and Alteans!) were trying to resolve? I think that would be fascinating to explore. :)

Or just about anything else here! Was there ever a time they needed to pretend to be on Zarkon's side while the other was getting roughed up? How deep does their trust of one another go? :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Inspired by the sketches linked above, something with them cuddling up/kissing with the cosmos behind a window.
❧ Working undercover at the Empire
❧ Sparring together/working together/relaxing together/a stolen kiss while working undercover in the Empire?
❧ Any ceremonial gesture or ritual they ever had to do as part of the Blade of Marmora.

Requesting: Kuro/Shiro • Fic, Art

Shiro is my life, and I love him from deep within my heart. He is my precious, and when he goes through so much pain, my heart bleeds and aches. So, you know, I'd love to see him get wrecked. >:3

For this, please, do not hold back. DARK SHIP alert for this one. Perhaps Haggar found a way to clone Kuro/make him corporal so he can track down and torture Shiro (or worse, torture one of his teammates just so Shiro can live with the guilt that someone who looks like him messed up someone he cares for!)

Or perhaps Kuro's all in his mind somehow? 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. Issues of Shiro slowly going insane, self harm as means of trying to get Kuro out of him, etc. Or Shiro finally breaking/cracking/losing it/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 Just please, please, hurt Shiro so, so much. I love him and I love it when he suffers. :3 )

Art-specific requests:
❧ Oh, mirrors. Either Shiro seeing a sneering Kuro or something more abstract such as Kuro wrapped about Shiro who is literally breaking apart like glass under Kuro's grip?
❧ Some visualization of the above fic prompt, where Shiro is trying to hold it all in in front of his friends while Kuro is mentally tormenting him. Yum. :) Will not say no to visual depictions of self harm, either, only as long as you are fine drawing this. <3

Requesting: Kuro/Keith/Shiro • Fic, Art

Dark ship. Kuro is an illusion created by Haggar meant to torment Shiro with what he could have become had he allowed her to turn him into the Galra Empire's greatest weapon. What if she had a plan up her sleeve to clone Shiro, and so Kuro goes after the team? Dark stuff only for here please, including noncon/rape, torture, hurt/comfort, whump, humiliation, death, etc. Mostly, Kuro causing damage on both characters would be interesting to witness. Perhaps Keith sees who he thinks is Shiro and tries to get intimate with him, only to realize it's Kuro? Or Kuro had infiltrated the Castle and wrecks the two Paladins, with one having to look on helplessly as the other is brutalized? Hurt/comfort and working as a team against Kuro works well here too.

Note that while this does cross into Keith/Shiro, I'd prefer them, if you wish to write them, as a side pairing here and focus on Kuro's dynamic with Keith and Shiro individually and with both.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Any depiction of Kuro being rough and inflicting damage on either one or both of the Paladins while the other is powerless to stop him.
❧ Noncon artwork of the prompt above. Just imagine poor Shiro's face as he looks on! :)
❧ Kuro pinning down Keith or Shiro
❧ Kuro managing to dominate both men at once

Requesting: Haggar/Zarkon • Fic, Art

Unless Season 3 (or whenever) josses the idea, I'm pretty convinced that VLD-Haggar is Lotor's mother, and even more, I'm super convinced that if she and Zarkon did the nasty, she definitely topped. ;D Again, I'm forever questioning just what is Haggar's deal! Maybe Season 3 will shed some light or maybe it won't! Perhaps you have some ideas or you'd like to build up on whatever Season 3 gives us. Either way, I'm all ears/eyes! :D

Since it looks so clear that Lotor is their child (unless proven otherwise), I would love to know more about their relationship. What made Haggar decide to be loyal to Zarkon? One thing I imagine is that Alfor had, completely unintentionally, hurt Haggar in some way that she found herself trusting no one but Zarkon. Or perhaps Alfor did not like the sort of experiments or areas of science Haggar always wanted to study but Zarkon was more open to receiving her as a student? Or perhaps she healed Zarkon after an accident? (Zarkon didn't have a scar in the flashback the Black Lion showed Shiro. Maybe there's a story there.) So, I'm curious. What brought them together? What made Zarkon trust Haggar unconditionally (and if you want for fun, to test out if ever something might ever threaten that trust?)

I imagine they are on equal ground and am glad that the show is hinting at a consensual relationship. However, if you want to explore a darker beginning for the relationship, I won't mind as well. :) Anything exploring into Haggar would make me so, so pleased.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Perhaps a sort of then and now piece, showing us how the two looked when they first met versus them now, 10,000 years later? :)
❧ Any visual of the above prompts, such as Haggar healing Zarkon after an explosion that nearly killed him.
❧ If you don't mind smut, anything where Haggar is topping Zarkon. Was their first time while Haggar was still looking very much Altean or did she go full purple then too?

The Silmarillion

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

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add here! :)

Tolkien. ♥︎ As you can gather from my AO3 handle, Middle-earth is a major love for me and has been for quite some time! It's quite hard to narrow down what I love because there's so much of it; it's a huge, huge world full of many cultures that Tolkien created. In this set, I have split them up into two blocks: blacksmiths and Moriquendi elves! :)

Requesting: Mablung/Beleg • Fic, Art

Exploration of elves living in Doriath and what Moriquendi culture is like is catnip for me. How long have the two known one another? Does it stretch back to when they were still living by the Cuiviénen? Or did the relationship start while the Moriquendi migrated west and were lost for a time in search for their leader Elwë? Or did sparks not fly until Menegroth became their home?

As Mablung is a Captain and a Marchwarden of the Sindar, was there any ceremony or ritual when he declared Beleg a Captain alongside him? What of their many, many adventures during the Year of Trees and First Age, as it seemed the two were seldom ever seen apart?

I also have a headcanon that Mablung and Eöl are Kinn-lai brothers, and part of the reason why Mablung/Beleg fought alongside Fingon during the Nirnaeth Arnoediad was because Mablung was Fingon's brother-in-law. Anything exploring that would be neat, if you'd like to play with this headcanon too. :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Mablung bench pressing Beleg on his arm (the inspiration for this inside joke!)
❧ A series of portraits of their lives: from Cuiviénen, migrating west, Menegroth during the Year of Trees, First Age, etc.
❧ Geared up and ready for battle, or the day Beleg became captain and received a gift from Mablung
❧ Sparring together
❧ Slipping in a kiss while on duty out on the field

Requesting: Aredhel/Eöl • Fic, Art

I would love to see these two elves of very different cultures come together. They seem like an unlikely match, yet they compliment one another very nicely. I see them as intellectually matched, but while Eöl is more literal-minded and science-oriented and austere in his mannerisms, Aredhel is the one with the imagination and the wit with the brass attitude to match. I imagine Eöl, forever hunched over his work to the point that he becomes stooped, would enjoy the bright, sunny personality of Aredhel tugging him away from the work bench and into the forests for some exploration and fun. And Aredhel I imagine would be thrilled to have someone as intelligent as Eöl to have deep conversations with. She's a skilled hunter, strong-willed, and a born leader, and her mind is alight with ideas that never really get anywhere until she began hashing them out with Eöl. So I'd love to see this as a marriage of the minds.

And being a great lover of the dwarves, I would love to see her form friendships with them. Could there perhaps have even been women among the company that visited Nan Elmoth, and what was Aredhel's reaction to see women with full beards?

And what of Nan Elmoth? Aredhel, ever the explorer, would be enchanted by this mysterious forest. What of the other Avari who lived there, of their culture? I headcanon that Aredhel's mother was of the Kinn-lai tribe, so perhaps Aredhel comes across something that reminds her of her mother? And what of the celebrations, something Aredhel would love to experience? And on that thought, what of the sadness that comes in time, as she could not be open about her own Noldor culture? I feel that, especially after they had a child and warred over how to raise him (even over the name), was what soured the marriage later on. They're both very proud and attached to their cultures.

Art-specific requests:
❧ A stroll under the sickle moon! :D
❧ Eöl teaching Aredhel something at the smithy! (or maybe just sex in the smithy! Hee!)
❧ This is SUCH an inside joke by now but: maybe Aredhel bench-pressing Eöl, to his alarm! :D
❧ Anything that plays with the black/white, dark/light, day/night dichotomy of their clothes and demeanor.

Requesting: Amras/Nellas • Fic, Art

Doesn't this just seem like the sweetest pairing ever? :) The word "vanilla" seems to come to mind when I think of them, not necessarily in reference to their bedroom matters (although it might) but because they seem as soft, mild, and gentle as vanilla.

How did these two most unlikely elves meet? Did Nellas happen by Amras while traveling the far west and found a man trapped in a ship that had recently burned? What of their relationship after that? I'd love to see an Amras who is alive, unknown to his brothers, disfigured but living in peace with his Nando love. What of language barriers, them both teaching the other their language (though I'm certain Nellas would also be wary of Quenya with its association with the kinslayers and Thingol's ban.)

Or perhaps Amras was alive and well throughout the First Age and happened by this Nando beauty while traveling west of Doriath? It is said that in one of the versions of the Silm that Amras and Amrod worked alongside the Green elves, so perhaps a visit from Amras one day to Nellas's relatives led to her meeting him, and hearts went aflutter? :) A scene of him singing to her as she sits up on a tree, enjoying his song, would be adorable, and bonus for his brothers teasing him for his obvious infatuation!

Art-specific requests:
❧ Amras and Nellas sitting in a tree! (maybe with some k-i-s-s-i-n-g)
❧ Amras playing an instrument as he sings for Nellas
❧ A modern day scene of them sharing an ice cream cone! :D (either them in modern day clothes or just elves, out of time, experiencing our world.)

Requesting: Fingolfin/Anairë • Fic, Art

My heart! :') I love how Fingolfin is noted for his physical strength and valor, whereas Anairë's name indicates she's highly spiritual. It's an interesting combination of earth and air/cosmos. How do they get along, and what is the glue that holds them together?

Absolutely anything here will delight me. Cute moments of first meetings, Írimë (with help from Elemmírë?) trying to set up dates for them, and celebrating when they do fall in love. Perhaps some cultural clash if Anairë comes from a Noldor family with different values and beliefs than Fingolfin. I do headcanon Anairë's family having been counted as among the Kinn-lai before they traveled to Valinor; what if she still holds on to some of their customs? If you like to play with that headcanon, go right ahead! :D

Anairë means the "holiest" so what are Fingolfin's feelings towards a wife who is extremely devoted to the Valar? Perhaps some interesting heart-to-heart between them as Anairë makes him forget the lifelong war with his half-brother long enough to think on more philosophical and spiritual matters. Fingolfin having an existential crisis? That would be interesting! :) With Anairë joining him on that moment of shared panic!

The First Age and how each felt being away from the other, if they tried to find some means of communication. Did Fingolfin ever regret his decision coming to Endor? Did Anairë ever regret her decision in not following him? And possible reunions if Fingolfin is reborn back in Valinor, and how their relationship changes after that point.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Fingolfin and Anairë at their wedding! :D
❧ First meeting, especially if someone as valiant as Fingolfin actually has a shy moment. Hee!
❧ Final embrace before parting after the Darkening
❧ A romantic hug/moment against a sunset background.

Requesting: Meleth/Rôg • Fic, Art

There is SO MUCH you can do with this one! <3 They're both such tiny players in the Gondolin storyline that I don't want them to be Noldor (yay for ethnically ambiguous elves!) What if they were Moriquendi/Avari elves? What if they were Mithrim elves who followed Turgon to this new elf sanctuary? :D Absolutely anything here would be excellent, from a chance to explore elven society in Middle-earth during the Year of Trees and in a location where Tolkien did not explore, to how it was, from their POV, when the Noldor arrived (such as Meleth and Rôg being among the group helping them settle in, healing from their brutal travels, Rôg giving them a hand in forging new weapons, etc), to their lives in Gondolin and their lives have changed in each era, for better or worse.

If you'd like to peek into my headcanon, I do envision Meleth as a Hwenti elf and Rôg as a Windan, but you don't have to use those for your story/artwork, of course. :)

If you want to play in Gondolin setting: absolutely anything! The two of them settling into their new home. Perhaps a peaceful day together? Or perhaps on that fateful day what with Rôg protecting Meleth and Idril as they get away.

Do the two ever reunite afterwards? Does Rôg enter the Halls? Or does his spirit follow Meleth to Sirion? (A ghost love story?)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Meleth and Rôg during the year or trees (in Endor); or perhaps the same idea but them in Gondolin, or compare/contrasting their lives during those two points in time?
❧ A nice, peaceful sunny day out at downtown Gondolin! :)
❧ Rôg fighting off enemies so that Meleth and Idril and co can all get away to safety. Something bittersweet such as Meleth looking back and seeing Rôg in his element? Perhaps she witnessed his death but knew that he was doing so to save them?
❧ Ghost-Rôg watching over Meleth in Sirion. :)

Requesting: Curufin/Gereth • Fic, Art

Okay, so let's AU the Silm a little right now. Instead of Curufin dying at the second kinslaying, what if he lived just long enough to learn who had helped Elwing and Evranin escape and went after Gereth to interrogate her? And then things got a bit...frisky from there. :) Or perhaps the two even had a relationship before that fateful moment. Or hell, maybe Gereth IS Curufin's wife for all we know! (and with a headcanon that Gereth is a blacksmith, that would definitely explain Celebrimbor, what with both parents as blacksmiths as well!)

I admit that I nominated this just because I'm forever thirsty for any blacksmith/blacksmith action, but the thought that Gereth may have been a flame or even Curufin's wife...Just thinking of all those possibilities, I'd love to see how that all impacts and plays with Gereth going against the Noldor and helping Elwing and Evranin, especially if Gereth herself was a mother. Just how many other parents did she witness have to bury their children before she finally snapped? Before that moment, how loyal was she to Curufin? Wife, flame, colleague? So many areas to explore! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ I want to see Curufin try to interrogate her. But see, I envision Gereth as a very tall muscular lady. While I envision Curufin as a tiny elf (literally a mini-Fëanor.) Have fun with that! XD
❧ Smutty fun in the Smithy! Can never go wrong with that! <3
❧ And how can I miss out on the classic? Gereth bench pressing Curufin. <3

Requesting: Ilmarë/Thuringwethil • Fic, Art

I enjoy the symmetry here; Ilmarë is the kindler of stars, of life and light, and Thuringwethil is the extinguisher, the shadow, the destroyer of light and life. Perhaps they once worked together, or were born together, being matter and anti-matter, light and dark, etc. For all we know, their fates are the most tightly bond of all the characters in the legendarium. Perhaps Thuringwethil was once the Maia who was to clean up after Ilmarë, reabsorbing light, energy, entire stars? What if this was then twisted by Morgoth, thus turning her into a vampire? And her vampirism need not be the bloodsucking kind; psychic (energy-sucking) vampires, or indeed any vampire myth, can work excellently here! :)

I do not believe Thuringwethil died when Lúthien took her batfell; she simply had to make a new one for herself. I would love a further exploration on what that is, this creation of shadow, especially when placed against Ilmarë. Does she have something similar, a raiment of starlight? How does it help her? Since they are both these cosmic creature trying to walk on Earth, do these raiments try to ground them and what happens if they are shed? Do they meet again, perhaps during the War of Wrath, and what if both found themselves unable to kill one another? Or going by above, they shed their raiment and decide to take up the battle high in the heavens, with plenty of emotional baggage following them as they intensely hate yet still love one another.

I also had thought of the moon and its phases, if you'd like to play with that (as either fic or art!)

With that in mind, had Ilmarë ever tried to sway Thuringwethil back into the path of light? That would be interesting to see. :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Any play on starlight/shadow, or the moon and its phases!
❧ Thuringwethil drinking blood or energy from Ilmarë (especially if her blood isn't red, but, say, made of light
❧ Ilmarë keeping Thuringwethil on her knees as she's enveloped in starlight

Requesting: Gamil Zirak/Telchar • Fic, Art

DWARVES! And sadly the very few of the Silm that we know of, but they are precious nonetheless! As a general note on dwarves: I'm okay with any genders you decide to assign them. Based on Tolkien's notes, since the ladies look just like the men, I take it to mean that the genders assigned in the text is just how loremasters recorded them based on reports, so for all we know, that dwarf may in fact be a woman who just doesn't bother giving her gender out. XD So this can be slash, femslash, or het! You choose! <3 (and of course, trans or non-binary are more than well-accepted too!)

We don't have many cases of teacher/apprentice-type relationships for the Silm. Was it amicable? How did they meet? Was Gamil Zirak looking for a pupil or did Telchar just barge their way in? Was there some desire from Telchar to become a better smith? Or perhaps Gamil sends Telchar to retrieve something before they can learn Gamil's secrets in smithing? This can go so many ways. :) Make it loving, or competitive, or even frivolous, as I'm sure they've had to take breaks from working longs hours!

Art-specific requests:
❧ Hee, I always select "sex in a smithy" for Smut Swap for a reason. ;D I imagine it would fit REAL well here too!
❧ Or something less smutty, the two dwarves just forging something neat together, whatever it may be is all up to you. <3
❧ A chance to see what a dwarven courtship would be like would be really nice! Does the suitor forge something themselves to give to the dwarf they're interested in? What kind of gifts do they give as a means of courting? Or any other ideas you have regarding dwarven courting! <3

Requesting: Finrod/Amarië • Fic, Art

This line in The Silmarillion concerning the making of Nargothrond always cracked me up: Finrod was aided by the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains; and they were rewarded well, for Finrod had brought more treasures out of Tirion than any other of the princes of the Noldor. Why the hell did Finrod decide to go that distance with pockets exploding with gold and other treasures? It amused me to imagine him just grabbing anything shining his hands touched and stuffing them in his pockets before dashing out to follow Fingolfin's march. And then the thought occurred to me: what if it was Amarië's idea, knowing well that money talks wherever you go? And if so, what other advice would she have given him, as she would not have been able to go with him?

I picture Amarië being renowned in home design and embroidered home decor, with an eye for colors other elves may not consider at first. So I wonder what ideas she would use from Finrod's stories of Endor for her new line of work. Or, what she might do to make the Moriquendi more comfortable with living in Valinor, perhaps bringing in a little dwarven influence in her creations as well? And for their reunion, what of it? How changed was Finrod after leaving the Halls, and what of their life together afterwards? That's one headcanon you can ignore or play with! :D

I would like to see them also react to news of events throughout Middle-earth's history. I headcanon they were friends with Maglor, so what of news of him having never been heard or seen of again? What of the Last Alliance, the news of the War of the Ring, of them meeting hobbits and a dwarf? There is so much one can take these two lovebirds after the First Age! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Finrod and Amairë on happier days during Valinor! Anything here: on the coasts of Alqualondë, horseback riding, a kiss between the Two Trees!
❧ Their final goodbye before Finrod leaves for Middle-earth.
❧ A reunion scene. Did Amairë come to retrieve Finrod from the Halls of Mandos or did Finrod surprise her? :)

Requesting: Tar-Telperiën/Original Female Character(s) • Fic, Art

One of my favorite Númenor queens (I love them all, to be honest!) I LOVE that she didn't give up that Sceptre until right before she dropped dead. Such an awesome queen. XD I just want to know more about her in any possible way. Did she have any lovers undocumented and thus that's why she was never married? Any adventures also undocumented? She seems like a bit of a rebel who kept her wild adventures all hush-hush somehow. Or that's somehow the vibe I'm getting. What about you, dear creator? :)

It is said that she had a brother and a nephew so perhaps they kept the place running while she'd sneak out to meet her lady love? :D I apologize this section is so tiny, but really, anything, literally anything would be most welcome here! I just want something with her and her lady love!

Art-specific requests:
❧ The Queen's lover being a guest at some event or dinner; the two women giving significant looks while no one else suspect a thing about their relationship! :D
❧ Or anything really, such as Tar-Telperiën being a tease, letting her love wear her crown and jewels (but never hold her Sceptre!)

Requesting: Bofur/Kíli • Fic, Art

The beloved dwarf pairing of my heart! This pairing can go from comedy central to hurt/comfort land at the drop of (Bofur's) hat! You are free to write them as m/m, f/f, m!Bofur/f!Kíli, or f!Bofur/m!Kíli! :D What I love about this is that there are seeds of possibilities within the book itself what with Bofur being Thorin's high guard along with Bifur and Bombur. Surely he must have noticed the Erebor prince(ss) at some point, no? :D In the book Kíli mentions working in the mines; is that when they meet? Or perhaps they've worked together there?

Or if you'd like, any point of the Quest! Feel free to mix in elements or scenes from either the book or the films! :) remember that look of concern on Bofur's face when Kíli got injured? Perhaps Bofur wanted to stay behind so he may be with Kíli! \0/

Did they have children, perhaps? Can you just imagine what THAT was like, what with two very child-like parents! And a dwarf in the likeliness of those two...dear Lord, poor anyone who had to deal with them! XD The fodder for all the humor! :D Or perhaps you want something more somber and sad, with a Bofur left without Kíli in the world? Is there a ghost love story in there somewhere?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Funny/humorous moments: drinking together, kissing, being flirty and goofy!
❧ Wedding day! I just imagine how cool it would be to see a dwarven wedding as I imagine they must be hella elaborate! :D
❧ If you wish to draw them in an intimate moment: please don't shy away from body hair, even on lady dwarves! <3
❧ A ghost Kíli trying to reach out for a Bofur who doesn't know/cannot see that Kíli is there.

Requesting: Bombur/Bombur's Wife • Fic, Art

They have such a loving relationship! I mean...twelve children and counting! This is such a wide, wide playing field as we know little about Bombur and virtually nothing about his beloved, so you can do so much with these two. :) I imagine Bombur is really sweet and charming, and his wife loves him for it. They perhaps excel in different areas in the kitchen, with Bombur being the expert cook and his wife an expert baker. But he's not only good in cooking, but also in engineering (based on an interview with the actors), so something about him and his wife working on a brand new project together, or Bombur building something for his beloved or one of their kids?

Or, something with them and their little army of kids would be great! Perhaps they are setting up a birthday celebration for one of them, or a family get together or a summer-related holiday (with fireworks? Dwarves on a beach! Can you just imagine Bombur chasing after an adorable little bearded toddler dwarf along a beach coast? :D )

Art-specific requests:
❧ Speaking of summer: walks on the beach! Building sand castles, capturing fishes and carbs and grilling them, etc.
❧ Bombur attempting to flirt with future wife for the very first time while Bifur and Bofur look on in amusement! <3
❧ Bombur and Wife just relaxing after a long, hard day, perhaps in some dwarven lingerie?
❧ Bombur getting to sample from a batch of pastries his wife is making before she goes to sell them, or giving her a spoonful to try from the stew or whatever else he's cooking for dinner! :D

Requesting: Glóin/Glóin's Wife • Fic, Art

The banker and the opera singer! No, really! :) The movie had made Glóin the banker of the Company. As for his wife - based on a sketch from the movie artbook, she struck me as someone who works on stage, perhaps as an opera singer of sorts or performs in plays. That was my headcanon that you're free to use, or free to ignore! :) If you like this idea: Perhaps it was her outstanding performance in a well known dwarven play that drew Glóin to her? Or perhaps Glóin saved the theater from going bankrupt?

Or, anything else here! I would love to see how these two dwarves met, got together as a couple, and so on. Also, did they have more kids beside Gimli? Perhaps an elder sister of Gimli? How much was it Wife's influence not to have Gimli on the Quest, perhaps? Or was Gimli needed elsewhere while his cousins went and got themselves killed? XD

And also, what was it like for Glóin and Wife after Erebor was taken back by the dwarves. Their family pretty much remains intact until Gimli goes on to make a dwarf settlement in Ithilien. Do they join him?

Art-specific requests:
❧ A kiss after coming home from work.
❧ Glóin stopping by Wife's area of work to flirt (or vice versa)
❧ Glóin admiring his wife's beard and/or vice versa.
❧ Raising little Gimli together, or any scene from any moment of the dwarven family <3

Requesting: Dís/Dís's Husband • Fic, Art

What intrigues me so much about this is that Dís is the only dwarf we know for a fact is a woman and only because of her children's heroic deeds, and it's interesting that her husband gets no mention at all since Tolkien normally doesn't miss a chance to name fathers in family trees. Who was this fella, I wonder? One of the dwarves whose family also came from Erebor? Or perhaps a family from Moria who traveled to the Blue Mountains before the Erebor dwarves joined them? Or perhaps he's a Firebeard or Broadbeam although Fíli and Kíli are not counted as among them. So: anything goes, really! :D

I'm especially interested if Dís's family had anything to do with this marriage. Did they want her to marry because Dúrin's line was at stake? Did she fall in love or was she more into her craft? And what of the old man himself? Did he die in the Battle of Azanulbizar, or was he so badly injured from the war that he remained home while his children went off on the Quest, and so ended up outliving them? There are so many questions! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Dís and her love at their wedding! :D Again, dwarven weddings must be so, so elaborate! <3
❧ The lucky bastard gets to meet the family. Being scrutinized by Thorin and Frerin while Dís acts nonchalant. XD

Requesting: Tauriel/Lírien/Original Female Character • Fic, Art

I just love the idea of Tauriel/Lírien, pairing up the Captain of the Mirkwood Guards with a minstrel of Rivendell. Let's spice it up by adding in an elf from Lothlórien! :D Perhaps she's a no-nonsense healer? Or a more bubbly one. Something to offset Tauriel and Lírien's personalities. What I'm looking for here is culture clash! Mirkwood/Rivendell/Lothórien are three very different and rich areas with their own cultures and I definitely want to see that come into play.

Perhaps Tauriel was requested to escort a bunch of elves, including Lírien, from Rivendell and to Lothlórien but they got injured along the way? When the two awoke they were being healed by a beautiful Lothlórien maiden. Or, anything else you can think of! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ I love what the three represent: Tauriel of the bodily strength, the Lothlórien healer OC of the mind, and the musical Lírien of the soul. Perhaps something playing around with that? :D
❧ The three of them just lazing around together as they watch the skys (a summer day/sunset/nighttime...with a moon, perhaps? :D )

These include: Haldir/Legolas, Lindir/Rúmil, Ioreth/OFC, any OFC/OFC. But you're okay with including anything in addition to my requested pairings below. :)
+ My love for LOTR leans more towards the books, but I will not complain if you lift any elements from the films! :D

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add here! :D

Requesting: Celebrían/Elrond • Fic, Art

I love these two so much! So Celebrían was born early to mid Second Age, after all the events of the First Age, so she doesn't have the knowledge of that time period the same way her parents or Elrond do. Wouldn't she then be curious, especially after learning that Elrond was raised by one of the sons of Fëanor? I imagine that would be a conversation they would have together.

I would adore a tale of any part of their relationship, from their first meeting, Elrond admiring Celebrían from afar, of their courting, and how Galadriel and Celeborn reacted when they found out that Elrond had fallen in love utterly and completely with their daughter. Their wedding, married life, Celebrían coming to live in Rivendell (how different was it from living in Lothlórien?), of them raising children together, happy moments, especially moments set during summertime? :) (And hey, things that highlight Elrond being as warm as summer!)

I generally would rather not receive anything pertaining to Celebrían's injury and eventually passing into the West. However, I would not mind something that focuses on her recovery when she reaches Valinor and possibly meets grandmother Eärwen! :) What happens to her then, how does she heal? Does she have to meet the Valar? Is it something that happens overnight or something gradual? And what of her eventual reunion with Elrond, the emotions they must have felt? And what of hearing that some of her children have chosen the path of Men?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Elrond and Celebrían on their wedding.
❧ The couple at any point during their relationship from having the twins to Arwen, perhaps an outing with the entire family on a summer day
❧ A quiet moment between the two of them anywhere in Rivendell (perhaps that location where the White Council was held?)
❧ Life after reunion in Valinor.

Requesting: Arwen's Daughter/Éowyn's Daughter • Fic, Art

I do not have any names for them, so you are free to do anything you wish here! :) You have a wide field for this one. May it be sweet and fluffy, or full of humor, or a bit dark. How elven is Arwen's Daughter, and when did she first meet Éowyn's Daughter? What was that meeting like? Was there courtship like in those wonderful medieval era, complete with Éowyn's Daughter giving Arwen's Daughter a flower before competing in tournaments? Did they exchange love letters? Vows and promises of being together? How did their families take this news that the two ladies were falling in love?

Perhaps you wish to explore further Tolkien's abandoned ideas from The New Shadow? Perhaps they need to travel somewhere, with Éowyn's Daughter as the guard, and they are attacked. Éowyn's Daughter is injured while trying to protect Arwen's Daughter. Assuming no healer is nearby, how much of her parents' healing abilities did Arwen's Daughter inherit?

Or, anything else you come up with! <3 I just want to see some more of Middle-earth after the War of the Ring, and what better way than through the eyes of the next generation! <3

Art-specific requests:
❧ Éowyn's Daughter presenting Arwen's Daughter with a flower/rose while she's riding a horse
❧ The two taking a romantic stroll in either Ithilien or right outside Minas Tirith.
❧ Éowyn's Daughter protecting Arwen's Daughter during an attack.

Requesting: Berúthiel/Original Female Character • Fic, Art

Man, am I enchanted by Berúthiel! This brings about my love for how Tolkien had these tales that makes you think there had to be another side to them, another perspective. Berúthiel's tale is one of them. Fandom likes to play with the idea that perhaps she had a lover in Umbar, so let's play with that! Who is the woman that Berúthiel the so-called "nefarious, solitary, and loveless" queen loves so much? What made her so closed? Had something been done to her or her loved ones? Does she feel freer and warmer and more open when she's back in Umbar? (Did she posses magic? I would not say no to a witch Berúthiel.)

I love this artwork of Umbar; it's very Middle-eastern (oh my heart!), so perhaps this is a place to introduce jinn in the legendarium? Perhaps the real reason for her bitterness has to do with that? Perhaps her lover is a jinn, someone she cannot have? What if one of her cats was actually a jinn who could shift physical form and was the lover in question?

Or, anything, really! :D I'm pretty convinced that the story we have in our book doesn't give us everything about Berúthiel.

Art-specific requests:
❧ Perhaps something about her greeting one of her cats who is shapeshifting into her true lover?
❧ Berúthiel where she is happiest: at home in Umbar with her beloved. :D
❧ Berúthiel and her beloved engaging in some Middle-eastern forms of magic or divination.

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ All canon ships are great as well as CC/OCs. :)
+ Crossovers and fusions with SSSS are always fine and welcome. Same with crossing aRTD with any fandom (come on, I know you want to read Year in Hereafter <3)

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add here! :)

Requesting: Joona Kuikka/Anssi Skårsholm • Fic, Art

The idea for this ship came about because I love Jonna/Riikka so much (Jonna being Joona's twin sister and Riikka being Anssi's older sister.) It struck me that their respective brothers could also be a good combination together. They don't interaction much on page, but they are seen sitting together during the northern lights viewing event (while Jonna and Riikka sit together.) In terms of personalities, I think Anssi's easygoingness meshes well with Joona's jokester personality, don't you? :)

So let's see Jonna and Riikka's respective brothers get together too! In fact, if you'd like to feature those two ladies as well (as well as ANY of the aRTD cast), that'll be great! Perhaps it was Jonna and Riikka's idea to matchmake the two? How did the two think of the idea of being a couple? Joona teasing Anssi before thinking, "Hey, this is the first guy who doesn't want to kill me after a prank!"

Absolutely anything here would be a joy, what their life together would be like, how they function as a couple (their dynamics, getting together and things like how this relationship would function, and so on), their life together down the years, etc. Hurt/comfort, angst, fluff, smut, more brush-ins with the supernatural, it's all good in here. What I love about aRTD is that it has wide doors open for SO many things you can do!

Feel free to also incorporate SSSS crossovers here too, for some hurt/comfort scenarios or suspense (would either of them become mages? What of escaping the village or staying put? Or does one of them get infected?) Or perhaps even, while riding out of town, they meet up with Harmonsuo family from Year in Hereafter? What happens then? ;D

Art-specific requests:
❧ Joona having Anssi sample something he's cooking up in the family bakery.
❧ Anssi stopping by the bakery to give Joona some of the fish from the refinery.
❧ Stolen kisses on the way to or from work
❧ A peaceful present or future scene of the two sitting together under the stars and northern lights (preferably one that is Fox-less)
❧ A double wedding of Joona/Anssi and Jonna/Riikka! And of course what's a Kuikka wedding without it being a little quirky and mischievous? :D

Requesting: Jonna Kuikka/Riikka Skärsholm • Fic, Art

An OTP for this comic! :D Jonna is pictured above after she had a chance to comfort with Riikka and is now dealing with Paju. I loved the look Jonna gave Riikka while she was panicking over getting Paju all upset. It just had a lot of affection (to my eyes it did, at least!) Absolutely anything here would be great: any other times when Jonna had to diffuse tension/jitters over Paju, or happier things such as when the two met, or how their relationship functions under their busy schedule. Perhaps Jonna making things for Riikka in their family bakery to make her smile at the end of a busy or bad day? <3 Or Jonna cooks up a plan to have some hilarious prank as revenge on Paju, but in the end it makes the three girls closer friends? :D

Really, any scenario you can think of with these two: fluff, sweetness, some angst, SSSS crossover, etc. I also do ship their brothers together so if you'd like to group them all together for a double date, that would be awesome as well! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ Something cute such as the two sharing some sweet or some ice cream. Perhaps watching fireworks together? (any Finnish summer holidays?)
❧ Jonna going boating with Riikka! :D
❧ An SSSS crossover idea where the two are holding tight to one another while the world as they know it around them dissolves.
❧ Putting this here too: a double wedding of Joona/Anssi and Jonna/Riikka! And of course what's a Kuikka wedding without it being a little quirky and mischievous? :D

Requesting: Hannu Viitanen/Samuli Tiira • Fic, Art

Okay, not certain why but when I saw this in the tagset I thought, "Man, I want all the dirtybadwrong for this!" Not sure why! Samuli isn't an evil person, but he is quite the grump. Perhaps Something where both he and Hannu get into a little heated debate that leads into something else entirely heated for both of them? Hatesex, a bit of rough play, banging like the doors during a Midwest tornado storm? Perhaps the two kind of like the unexpected turn of events? A nice change from the humdrum of life, without anything weirdly supernatural going on.

And feel free to go as kinky as you wish with this. Perhaps they discover that breaking Tyrkisk Peber into powder and sticking it in certain anatomical orifices yield some, um, interesting results. :3

Or, if you like Year 0/SSSS crossover fics, may I tempt you with the following suggestion: Samuli Tiira a lá Rick Grimes! :D Just imagine these two having to work together to survive, battling trolls, Hannu being shoved and pushed around by a hardass Samuli! And all the hard hatesex too. I apologize for all the smut-themed prompts, but that's the vibe I keep getting from this pairing. :) If you have anything else in mind, you are free to go with that too! <3

Art-specific requests:
❧ Stealing a kiss while Ville pets Astrid!
❧ Getting rough and kinky against a wall or a tree or anywhere else your imagination takes you! :D
❧ A visualization of the above Year 0/SSSS crossover would be neat. Perhaps Samuli and Hannu back to back as they fend off trolls?

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:
+ Canon ships as well as CC/OC ships are great! So are crossovers and fusions! <3
+ You are definitely free to use any of the Patreon sketches, sketch/design previews/teasers, and so on as inspiration. I apologize that this section is a bit bare compared to the other fandoms, but that's given that the webcomic went on hiatus just as the story kicked into gear! :D That being said, if the comic goes off hiatus during the creating period, you are definitely free to go off any new ideas that come to you from the new pages! Please, don't hold yourself to only my prompts here! :D

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add here! :)

I fell in love so much with this story, and you can imagine my little heartbreak when I reached page 240! :) (I did know it was on hiatus going in, but it was still painful nonetheless. WHY! The story was just kicking off into gear!) All of the characters won my heart. What is up with the Harmonsuo family in general? Goodness, I wanted to give Mika a big ol' dwarf hug! Goodness, was Sakari a joy the moment we finally met him (and man, I cannot wait until he finally properly reunites with his brother.) I fell in love with Veeti, our currently active magic-user, and--ah, what have we here? Jaakko, smith? THIS AWESOME COMIC HAS BLACKSMITHS! Well, I'm sold! :D Beautiful art and suspenseful, mysterious story that kept me clicking on to the next page. I highly recommend this webcomic!

So with that said:

Requesting: Veeti Harmonsuo/Jaakko Ilmarinen • Fic, Art

Absolutely anything here that takes us a little further into the story would be amazing. The webcomic left us in a rather interesting moment. Veeti is off in a sleep state in Jaakko's bed while Mika and Sakari are off on a journey with Ieva. Sounds like the setup for a romance story of some kind. Of some kind (humor? head-butting? Or perhaps...maybe Veeti and Jaakko recognize one another from before? Is Jaakko a native of Hereafter or does he not remember his life from before his death? Or perhaps the two had met before, in a dream, or as spirits?

If you would like to tie this with Small Trolls in some way, perhaps a Soulmate AU/trope scenario where they learn they are soulmates from multiple universes (Small Trolls, Tistow, Year in Hereafter, etc.) and realize that in each lifetime they must learn something important from one another.

If you happen to be also familiar with SSSS, Veeti/Jaakko also seem like mirrors to Reynir/Lalli, my OTP for SSSS, so if you wish to write for that in any way (as a Soulmate AU where the couple remeets in each lifetime, etc), you certainly may. :)

ALSO! It appears that this webcomic may be coming off hiatus soon! We've been getting teasers of sketches, so if there's anything you wish to write with those as inspiration, you certainly may! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ Jaakko holding Veeti's hand and helping him up when he wakes up
❧ A little strip showing them about their day (Jaakko at the smithy, Veeti in the forest, with the final cell of them just together, perhaps one sleeping on another's shoulder)
❧ Messy kisses after a long day (soot on Jaakko, twigs and dirt on Veeti)

Requesting: Sakari Harmonsuo/Mika Lapintaival • Fic, Art

I love this as a relationship that blossoms while the two are out with Ieva traveling north! I adored this ship the moment Mika cried out an answer to Sakari's call when he spotted the ship coming towards them. And Sakari calling Mika "Mini Mika"? SO CUTE! :'D While they are brother-in-laws, I wonder how that would impact the relationship. Since there were some years distance (especially considering the years during Sakari's disappearance), how does that impact and shape their relationship? And honestly, I just want to see more of them together. Sakari is such a gentleman and I love how he's sweet towards Mika. And just like with Veeti/Jaakko, I'd love absolutely anything that'll take us just a step further in the storyline, even if it's just a snippet of a moment of them traveling with Mika resting his head on Sakari's back. :) Perhaps Sakari asks Mika about life back at home, about Johannes and Inkeri and Siiri and the rest? Mika telling Sakari about Helmi? :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Mika riding right behind Sakari, perhaps with one arm around him, head against Sakari's back?
❧ Mika and Sakari sitting next to one another during a meal break while the group is taking a break from their travels?
❧ Stealing a kiss while Ieva isn't looking? XD

Requesting: Ieva Pajari/Sulo Rautio • Fic, Art

I have no idea where this ship came from, but I love the idea of pairing our beloved high-ranking infantry with our beloved blacksmith! :D Absolutely anything here would be neat! I somehow can't imagine them being all that sappy romantic, so yay for unconventional courtships! Humor as to the sort of things Jaakko (and later on, Sakari!) had to witness whenever Ieva stopped by. Or perhaps for a tiny angsty twist, a time when Ieva was under the weather and Sulo cheered her up? :) Anything here, really! How do you see the ship, dear person? :D Definitely an anything goes pairing!

Art-specific requests:
❧ I just had a funny thought of Jaakko and Sakari watching from afar as the two lovebirds converse, looking like they're about to kiss, or about to get into a heated fight. Something humorous here with Jaakko and Sakari looking...not pleased? :)
❧ The two taking a break! Perhaps sharing a lunch together at the pier? :)

Requesting: Siiri Harmonsuo/Kari Harmonsuo • Fic, Art

Eeeek! Okay, I love Siiri so much, and the new sketches that have come out have made me even more excited for this webcomic to come out of hiatus! :D If you can think of some story or artpiece to build around that image of Siiri in that hood, I would love that! (We'll be going back to Lapland for Chapter 6! Possible flashback time? Who knows! :D) Also, considering the information on page 205 regarding magic in the Harmonsuo family, what would Siiri be? Tutelary? Omniscient? Elemental? And what's Kari's reaction to the first time he's seen her magic? :D

And speaking of Kari our other half of this ship: what of her relationship with Kari? I just love the yin/yang-ness of the relationship, with Kari being the more subdued/calm of the two. How did the two meet and was Siiri so...Siiri on that first meeting as well? What made Kari decide that he would spend the rest of his life with this amazing human being? :'D

Art-specific requests:
❧ The couple during their youth! Absolutely anything here!
❧ Perhaps Siiri and Kari during a winter vacation. Does Siiri ever enjoy herself? :) Or Siiri getting angry at, say, a broken furnace while Kari is sitting there reading and ignoring the whole drama. XD
❧ Siiri doing magic, perhaps protecting Kari while at it? Depends on the type of magic you think she inherited. :)

Requesting: Inkeri Harmonsuo/Johannes Lapintaival • Fic, Art

The rich and complex history and secrets with the Harmonsuo family have got me hooked on them! Anything here about Inkeri growing up in this magical family; perhaps her first encounter with Lempo? Her roll to play, or a closer look at her own magical abilities, especially with how it's played into her trying to live a normal life otherwise. How much of her life, her family, and their history does Johannes know? Was he ever intimidated by Siiri? And what exactly happened that day when they lost Sakari? (the comic seems to imply that the couple were very close to him. Or was there more to the story, as there seems to be many layers of secrets here?) Really, just about anything here will make me most pleased! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ The first time they met, or perhaps Inkeri trying to act as normal as she can during a first date (considering her family background), or Johannes witnessing her do magic for the first time.
❧ Inkeri, Johannes, and Sakari on that fateful day. Perhaps something peaceful right before tragedy hit? :)

Crossover Fandom

Extra Info/Likes/Ships:

Do Not Wants:
− Nothing more to add here! :)

And now for a little challenge if you like! :) Perhaps there are some new canons you'd like to pick up this summer/winter? Even if you don't do anything with these prompts, consider this some canon recs! :D
→ Voltron: Legendary Defender - on Netflix (not sure if available globally)
→ Stand Still Stay Silent -

Requesting: Hunk (Voltron)/Tuuri Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art
Pidge (Voltron)/Tuuri Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

Okay, are these not the most adorable crossover ships ever?! :'D (if you disagree...I'm finding your address. Just kidding! XD <3 ) Find any means that these two worlds can collide. Perhaps wormholes can save the day, hurling the Castle right into Earth, Year 90. I just want Tuuri to have all the nice things right now considering the current state she's in over at the SSSS-verse. Perhaps the healing pods of the Castle can heal her? And what of Hunk and/or Pidge? Who wouldn't want a little bit of Hunk in their lives? :'D He's such an amazing and gentle lover that will bring all the comfort (and all the amazing-tasting food!) for Tuuri! And Pidge! Our fellow tech genius! I think mechanic Tuuri would really like that, especially since Pidge has also shown an interest in learning languages. Maybe Tuuri can also share some tips on how to learn languages? Just think of all the sweet scenarios of a hurt/comfort tale this can inspire, and doesn't poor Tuuri deserve some good things right now? :')

Art-specific requests:
❧ Hunk excitedly telling a bedridden Tuuri about his life and adventures in outer space while they share a bowl of one of his specialities. <3
❧ Bedridden Tuuri and Pidge talking away all night long about gadgets and technology and languages! :D I'm so, so sure Tuuri would want to ride out in Green (or Yellow!) How adorable would that be?
❧ For that matter, just imagine how adorably tiny the Cat tank will look next to Green or Yellow!
❧ Hunk and/or Pidge giving Tuuri a big, big hug after she steps out of the healing pod, completely cured from the troll's infection! :D

Requesting: Lance (Voltron)/Joona Kuikka (A Redtail's Dream) • Fic, Art

The thought of this gave me a mighty laugh once it entered my mind, but it makes so much sense! :D Let's say the Paladins steer Voltron towards Earth, but it lands in a little village called Hokanniemi. The children of the baker (and one grumpybutt employee named Hannu) go to inspect, and as the Blue Paladin leaves his Lion, he and Joona's gaze lock? :D Lance is quite the flirt as we've seen, and Joona is rather handsome, not to mention quite the prankster so this ship has potential for a lot of humor!

As for any other scenarios, up to you! Lance taking Joona for a spin in his Lion? Do the Galra attack the village? Kidnap Joona? Lance trying to impress his new beau with what his energy rifle could do (and maybe fucks up and Joona gets injured? Because Lance got a little too full of himself? Does this teach him humility to focus on the battle? Really, anything here. This pairing can be all laughs, tears, or a mix of both!)

ALSO! Lance was tied up and found it kinky in S1E6; Joona and Jonna threatened to tie up Hannu in the shed again in the webcomic (page 174.) You know where this is going. :3

Art-specific requests:
❧ Honestly I just want to see Lance heart-eyes at Joona the same way he's done to a few ladies during the show. :D
❧ Perhaps a comic of Lance sneaking up on Jonna to flirt/kiss, realize it's her brother, but is still all, "Whoa, you're quite handsome yourself!" and they go on kissing? :D
❧ Joona having fun indulging Lance in his fantasies. "Oh, Lance, you're so brave and modest!" (But, I'm sure there's a trap in there somewhere!) Or Joona earnestly enjoying himself in the Blue Lion beside Lance.
❧ A visual of Joona tying up Lance in the shed, who is...perfectly okay with this kinky development (and doesn't have his Blue Lion stolen!) :D

Requesting: Amras (Silmarillion)/Mika Lapintaival (Year in Hereafter) • Fic, Art

Okay, let's toss in these two together! :D They're both rather the odd man out in their respective families. Amras, it was said, later regretted following his father and attempted to return back to Valinor. Mika is thrown into this strange world with his in-laws and trying to understand everything. Both boys with strange family circumstances; I think finding some normalcy and love in one another's arms would be so welcoming for them right about now! :D

As for how this could come about: perhaps if you wish to go with one of Tolkien's notes that Amras does not die, and AU his eventual fate? Or perhaps he somehow becomes part of Kalevala and meets Mika while Ieva, Sakari, and he are journeying North?

Art-specific requests:
❧ After all the strange things he's seen, I think Mika might appreciate the sight of a beautiful elf who has once lived in Valinor! Perhaps just him enjoying being in Amras's company as the elf sings him a song or tells him a tale of his people?
❧ A kiss from an elf wishing him good luck for the rest of his journey (and bonus for a taller elf! :D I love height differences!)
❧ Suppose Mika gets injured during the journey and wakes up to Amras healing him. :)

Requesting: Keith/Shiro (Voltron)/Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

Two OTPs collide! \0/ Of course for this one I request that Keith/Shiro be not the main focus of the story as to remain in the spirit of the exchange. :) Suppose the two mages somehow encounter them, either through the dreamworld or perhaps a wormhole opened a portal into the SSSS-verse. Keith and Shiro notice that the two mages are struggling to work together (not to mention understand one another) so they decide to give the two some pointers on teamwork (Or, conversely, Lalli and Reynir go to those two to teach them how to make love?) I would love some Shiro/Reynir, Shiro/Lalli, Keith/Reynir, Keith/Lalli, all four together, and of course a little bit of Keith/Shiro and Reynir/Lalli too won't hurt! :)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Anything about the four of them growing closer, such as all of them using the mind-melding device to peer into one another's head holes, for whatever reason. Perhaps it'll help to strengthen the magical bond?
❧ Shiro and Keith teaching the mages the subject of love. Lovemaking, taking turns, all four at once, etc.

Requesting: Veeti Harmonsuo/Jaakko Ilmarinen (Year in Hereafter)/Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen (SSSS) • Fic, Art

I swear, these two pairings were literally separated at birth! Everything from Veeti/Lalli's magic-coma and silent grumpiness to Reynir/Jaakko's beautiful long red braid and being thrown into something they weren't prepared for! Mirror couples running into each other somehow. Perhaps the dreamworld finds them a portal into Kalevala? How do they react to such a discovery? If Lalli and Reynir are a couple in that moment (or if Lalli is harboring those secret feelings for him), then how does he react to someone like Jaakko? Or perhaps the two pairs are really one set of souls, soulmates who are reborn in every new lifetime, but by some mistake two versions of them meet one another? What happens then? :D Like the prompt above, I would love to see variations of this too, so Veeti/Lalli, Jaakko/Lalli, Veeti/Reynir, Jaakko/Reynir, and of course Veeti/Jaakko and Reynir/Lalli and all four together! :D

(All the bonuses for Reynir and Jaakko bonding over the fact that Lalli and Veeti are two grumpybutts!)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Always a cute trope: similar characters exchange wardrobes! Perhaps all four engage in this and are getting some amusement as they all hold hands or something?
❧ Jaakko forging some carving tools for Reynir's rune-making needs while Veeti and Lalli discuss and exchange magic spells nearby.

Requesting: Ieva Pajari (Year in Hereafter)/Sigrun Eide (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

Two military captains smashing their mouths together! <3 What can be greater than that? As for how this could happen, it's all up to you. Perhaps a portal in the Silent World gets the two women's paths to cross? Or while Sigrun is very badly injured, she very briefly catches a glimpse of Kalevala (even though she's not Finnish? Perhaps the injury took place during a different expedition in the future where the crew are out exploring northern Finland?) Just any possible way. Perhaps you have other ideas! I especially would love to see Ieva be the one ordering things around and Sigrun finding that she kind of enjoys this, the naughty captain that she is, hee! :D

Art-specific requests:
❧ Rough make out session between two ass-kicking captains! In whatever stages of dress/undress you wish to include!
❧ Their reactions when they first crossed paths, perhaps? :D Two redheads, in positions of power...perhaps one watches the other in her element and is quite hot in the face? <3
❧ Ieva and Sigrun trade suits, and admiring out they appear wearing the other lady's suit?

Requesting: Haggar (Voltron)/Ensi Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

Who here wants to see an epic mage showdown?! \0/ The timing can work eerily well. For all we know, Year 0 may have taken place after the Paladins leave Earth. Or, this is some wormhole effect sending Haggar into the future. :) Either way, one of the first mages of post-apocalyptic Earth finds that she must put her magic to the test when a space witch starts to hunt her down. This can be a potentially dark ship, but it really depends on where you wish to take this! :3 What does Haggar want with Ensi? What if Ensi's children were really some part of Haggar's experiment, I wonder? That's an eerie thought! <3

Art-specific requests:
❧ Haggar and Ensi locked into a battle, magic flying everywhere around them! :D
❧ Conversely, Haggar attempting to seduce Ensi by taking on her Altean appearance?

Requesting: Helmi Harmonsuo (Year in Hereafter)/Kaino Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

So in the SSSS Prologue we know that Aino, Kaino's sister, works for a woman named Helmi (no last name given.) Helmi Harmonsuo is 12 at the time of the event of YiH, but there's no telling what year it would be before Year 0 hits. See where I am going with this? :D What I adore about YiH-Helmi is that she loves to work on puzzles (and being a Harmonsuo, she was born with magic), and I cannot help but think that she'd definitely be out there trying to figure out what's causing this illness. And not only that, but before magic began waking in the world, her entire family were all mages. What's her magical ability, and what does she think, seeing magic become widespread? Does she think this might have anything to do with her family's situation/the swamp at all? And perhaps somewhere down the line she meets up with Kaino again; what happens then?

Art-specific requests:
❧ Helmi protecting Kaino and her family at the last minute, all decked out in her shaman/mage's attire, would be catnip for me. :3
❧ Honestly, anything with Kaino and Helmi navigating through Year 0 while also Kalevala spills into all of Finland would be so, so neat.

Requesting: Allura (Voltron)/Reynir Árnason/Lalli Hotakainen (Stand Still Stay Silent) • Fic, Art

So what if instead it being Shiro, Keith, Pidge, Lance, and Hunk that find Allura, it's two unsuspecting mages who somehow traveled farther than expected in the dreamworld? :3 I kind of want crack here. Pure pure lovely crack for this, especially with Allura's lovely charm ("Your ears. They're hideous.") It's an extra sweet bonus in that Allura is already magical, but like, a totally different kind of magic from them two what with being a space elf-like princess, but can you just imagine those three having to work together?! :D I'll just leave it at that. If you wish to create for this one, have fun with this. Hee!

(Of course, if you wish to bring in other Voltron characters as well, that's more than perfectly fine! I love them all!)

Art-specific requests:
❧ Paladin!Reynir and Lalli have become an image that have infected my imagination for a while now. I'd love to see them next to an Allura all suited up! :D
❧ The three of them doing magic together!

And you've reached the bottom! :D Hope something here inspires! And as always, if you have any questions at any time, I'm more than happy to answer via the mod! Enjoy and have fun creating, and have a wonderful June-July-August, you most creative soul! 🍍🍒
