aerielpembroke: (conrad and christopher)
Hello, and thank you for even considering one of my rare ships! My AO3 name is Aeriel and I am ridiculously delighted by the prospect of getting something for one of these ships, whose popularity ranges from 'a fond minority' to 'lol nobody cares'. I tried to make my requests the same size but unfortunately I did not succeed. At all. Please don't think that means I'm less interested in the ones that I said less about! Sometimes I have less ideas about what these character would be like together, but I'm requesting them because I want to see that explored.

As a general rule, I am okay with everything from G rated hand holding to explicit shenanigans, though I would rather no super underage sex stuff (tentatively ruling that some confused fumbling between 13/14 year olds of the same age is all right and 15-17 year olds can do whatever they like, and naturally if there's a canon age gap I don't mind seeing it in fic), and no non-con.  If you are leaning towards writing porn, I would like at least a little bit of story with it. If you are leaning towards not writing porn, no problem!

Relationship tropes that are Do Not Wants: ultimatums, jealousy that leads to angst, long term pining, characters forcing their partners out of the closet and/or not respecting their boundaries, the saint and the project (one character is fucked up and destructive and their partner is the selfless person that puts up with all their shit with no complaints or signs of issues of their own), characters dumping other characters 'for their own good' and anyone getting a non-canon terminal disease. That said, I doubt most of those are likely to come up in the contexts of the ships I asked for, so here's what I asked for.

バケモノの子 | Bakemono no Ko | The Boy and the Beast (2016)
Kyuuta | Ren/Ichirohiko
I started shipping these two when Ichirohiko defended Kyuuta from his brother's bullying and was over the moon the moment I realized Ichirohiko was secretly human! And then all the parallelism happened and oh my god, there are so many points of connection for them going forward (and Kyuuta gave Ichirohiko Kaede's bookmark bracelet!) with Ichirohiko having to deal with his anger and balance his nature the same way Kyuuta had to. Kyuuta, in his own way, is comfortable in his own skin, able and willing to forge a new path for himself, while Ichirohiko was repeatedly lied to about his identity and forced himself to try and fit a mold he was never going to grow into. Does Kyuuta ever teach Ichirohiko a few things? Is Ichirohiko ever interested in visiting the human world again under less dramatic circumstances? How might a relationship between the two of them develop, and/or once developed, how would it affect how they see themselves and their place in the world(s)?

Chronicles of Amber- Roger Zelazny
Corwin/Deirdre
When did they cross the threshold from brother and sister to lovers, if you will? Was there a period when they were happy, before Oberon found out and made his disapproval clear? Were there reactions from their other siblings (particularly Eric and Flora-- why is it Deirdre and Flora used to clash, anyway?) of any sort or were they all busy with their own affairs/not particularly surprised or inclined to make judgements either way? I'm particularly interested in Deirdre's side of things since for obvious reasons we largely got her through Corwin's eyes.

Fiona/Deirdre
With this family I could easily see certain members getting involved sexually just as another kind of head game to mess with one another, and that's definitely the way I envision Fiona/Deirdre. We know that Deirdre and Flora used to hate each other, but canon doesn't really give us an idea of how Fiona relates to any of her sisters, so there's plenty of room for interpretation! Maybe Fiona is scientifically curious about the bodies of her siblings, and pursues Deirdre because she knows Deirdre definitely won't fall inconveniently in love with her like Julian? Or maybe Fiona pretends to make an effort to comfort Deirdre after Corwin goes missing, only because she wants something from Deirdre? Or maybe Deirdre's the one who decides to cozy up to Fiona for her own reasons. Or maybe they're simply at each other's throats in a very sexually charged way!

Fire Emblem Fates
Foleo | Forrest/Syalla | Rhajat (Fates)
 I love how completely Forrest rolls with Rhajat's... being Rhajat and is only upset when she says she hates him. What kind of clothes does he make her? What kind of wedding dress would he make for their wedding? Does he enjoy being followed around? What would Leo make of Rhajat as his daughter-in-law? What would Hayato make of Forrest as his son-in-law?

Foleo | Forrest/My Unit | Kamui | Corrin (Fates)
I nominated this ship without specifying Corrin's sex because I'm equally interested in Forrest/M!Corrin and Forrest/F!Corrin. Obviously F!Corrin is the one who can canonically marry Forrest, but M!Corrin's supports with Forrest are incredibly flirty and suggestive and I find it easy to imagine them leading somewhere. That said, how on earth do they break the news to Leo? Or, what are some moments that come between F!Corrin's supports, shopping trips and sexually charged measuring sessions? Maybe Forrest healing Corrin of either sex turns into something steamy? Or Corrin gets Forrest a present in exchange for all he's made for her? Forrest lets slip to M!Corrin that although he prefers girls, he's been known to make an occasional exception?

Kushiel's Legacy- Jacqueline Carey
Alcuin no Delaunay/Joscelin Verreuil
Full disclosure: I have written this ship before, but please don't think that means I have any sort of rigid ideas about it! I like the idea of it because I feel like Alcuin and Joscelin would bring out different aspects of each other than we see in their canon romances. There's the fun bit of interaction already present in Dart with Joscelin teaching Alcuin to spar with him, and the contrast of Joscelin's rigidness to Alcuin's adaptability, and arguably Alcuin's attitudes towards sex are more like Joscelin's than Phedre's in terms of monogamy and romantic attachment. I would prefer this ship in an AU where Alcuin didn't die.

Alcuin no Delaunay/Ysandre de la Courcel
In Kushiel's Dart, after Phedre's pardon Ysandre says that she wishes she'd been able to meet Alcuin, and I think they'd have had rather a lot in common! I like that they're both cunning and both willing and able to use their wits to pursue their passions, and naturally if Alcuin had lived he would have worked for Ysandre (and arguably already was). Maybe Ysandre is curious about sex and Alcuin likes her enough to oblige? Or maybe, conscious of the worth of her virginity before marriage, nothing ever happens between them sexually but they develop feelings while working together closely in matters of intrigue and share a charged kiss or two? (Or well, there's probably a lot they could do that still wouldn't ~devirginize Ysandre in the eyes of foreign princes) I should mention I'm completely okay with Ysandre/Drustan still being a thing as long as everyone is aware of what's going on and there isn't say, Ysandre and Alcuin secretly happening behind Drustan's back. I would prefer this ship in an AU where Alcuin didn't die.

Melisande Shahrizai/Sidonie de la Courcel
And now for my darkfic request! Because I find it hard to imagine a scenario where this ship would happen that wouldn't be twisted in some way, but the idea of it is fascinating all the same. Even in an AU where Melisande gets to Sidonie before/instead of Imriel, Sidonie is still the daughter and heir of the Queen Melisande has been actively working to dethrone and/or kill. Melisande being Melisande, I imagine she would find it delightful to conquer Ysandre's daughter. Sidonie is of course not an anguisette, but Melisande has enough of the qualities she seems attracted to that if she didn't know initially who Melisande was I think she might just be tempted by her. I should re-iterate I'd rather not see graphic on-screen non-con but I'm pretty much expecting dubcon and referenced/implied non-con is fine for this specific request.

Der Rosenkavalier | The Knight of the Rose - Strauss/von Hoffmannsthal/von Kessler
Maria Therese/Octavian
I recently saw this opera for the first time and really enjoyed it, though I was I think appropriate levels of sad that Octavian leaves Maria Therese for Sophie in the end. But I'm curious about the early/earlier days of Octavian's relationship with Maria Therese. How did Maria Therese and Octavian first meet each other? How did their romance begin? Were there any other close calls with Octavian almost getting caught? (More cross-dressing silliness always welcome, honestly!)

Before I forget, my AO3 name is Aeriel and thank you for even considering writing or making art for me! I don't have a ton to say, and I don't want to overwhelm anyone, so basically I love these characters and their canons and I'm excited to see what you do with them. I've organized my requests alphabetically, and I promise I am enthusiastic about all of them, even if I rambled more about some than others.

Some general DNWs that may or may not be likely to come up in the contexts of these fandoms: body horror, public humiliation, cancer and other long-term serious illness, graphic non-con/rape, characters getting dumped 'for their own good', zombies, cruelty to animals, characters aggressively pursuing someone romantically who genuinely has no interest in them.

Welcome, Yuletide writer and anyone else wandering by! My AO3 name is Aeriel, and I love all these canons, so no matter which we have in common, I'm excited. Generally speaking I'm open to stories of all ratings, gen, f/f, m/m or f/m. I have mostly been using my LJ and DW for letter writing for various exchanges which may or may not be of use to you if you're in a stalking mood (see the exchange letter and yuletide tags).

Note on canons requested that have multiple versions: I am only familiar with the anime of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Ouran High School Host Club. If you wanna reference one of the other versions, go ahead, but it will almost certainly fly over my head.

(yes, it wouldn't be summer if I didn't have a case of exchange fever-- this is for the brand new SFF lit exchange)

Hello writer, and anyone else poking around! If we've been matched on one of these books, you clearly have excellent taste, and I shall be delighted to see what you come up with! I've organized my requests alphabetically, and I promise I am enthusiastic about all of them, even if I rambled more about some than others.

Generally speaking, when it comes to dislikes, I'd rather there not be super graphic violence or non-canonical character death. Otherwise, as follows are my requests. If I'm in any way too specific, please don't feel constrained by what I've written!

Welcome, Yuletide writer and anyone else wandering by! My AO3 name is Aeriel, and I love all these canons, so no matter which we have in common, I'm excited. Generally speaking I'm open to stories of all ratings, gen, f/f, m/m or f/m. I have mostly been using my LJ and DW for letter writing for various exchanges which may or may not be of use to you if you're in a stalking mood (see the exchange letter and yuletide tags).

Some very general likes-- friendship, loving families, characters who talk to each other about their problems, politics and intrigue, worldbuilding, characters who are passionate about something, adventure, characters making the best of a bad situation, characters determined to survive, characters making tough decisions.

Overall squicks that may or may not come up in the context of these fandoms-- body horror, zombies, incest for these fandoms, explicit child abuse/molestation backstories for characters who don't have them (for now I'm going with 'fourteen or under' for definition of child) and sensationalized death of female characters. Other DNWs are pining, terminal diseases, pushing partners away "for their own good" and cannibalism.

Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Kushiel's Legacy, Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past and Leviathan )
aerielpembroke: (aeriel)
Thank you so much for signing up for this exchange and one of my fandoms! I really love gen and am so pleased to be part of the first round of this exchange and I hope you feel the same way. Since people define gen in some slightly different ways, I thought you might like to know my definition, which is fic that is primarily focused on something besides romance, whether that be friendship, plot, the main character's development as a person or other platonic relationships. I am not of the school that gen cannot feature any romance at all, so a background couple or reference to somebody being in a relationship or even a kiss is fine so long as it isn't the focus of the story. But if your definition includes no romance or you just don't plain feel like having any in the story, please go with your gut and don't write what you don't want to!

My gen DNWs are pretty brief- no violence towards animals, no hopeless endings, no gross out humor, no character bashing and I'm thinking specifically for this fest and the fandoms I requested, no setting changing AUs (canon divergence is fine).

Free!, Link's Awakening, Ouran, Yugioh TAS and Yu Yu Hakusho below the cut )

And I guess that's everything! Kind of amused that my requests shook out to be all Japanese media.

Because if I don't do this now I am probably never going to get around to doing it, and I have another exchange letter to write good lord.

First of all, my Alois-hating soul is very pleased with whoever wrote this comment (originates here)

"Well, to be a heartless free-market type about it, you get what you pay for. And Claude bought Alois on the cheap. Look at the difference in contract terms: Sebastian has bound himself to serve Ciel, not lying to him and following all his orders, until Ciel's stated goals are fulfilled, while Claude has only agreed to serve Alois for as long as he feels like it. If that. His actual obligation may have come to an end when Alois inherited the Trancy title and estate.

My sympathy for Claude here is very, very limited. He bought a Big Mac and paid for a Big Mac. If what he really wanted was sushi from Sukiyabashi Jiro, he should have considered that ahead of time, not tried to steal somebody else's."

And now, back to trying to pull together my letter for Gen Swap. And, you know, pack for vacation and hastily do my laundry so I can pack it for vacation.

Hello, and thank you so much for considering writing something for one of my fandoms! (I am absolutely terrible at coming up with non-writing prompts so after much deliberation, I'm only asking for fic this year) I've tried to ramble at equal length about everything I requested but even if I didn't quite succeed, I really am pleased with fic for any of these! And if none of the prompts I've written speak to you or you already have a great idea for one of the fandoms/characters we matched on, please go ahead and do your own thing!

That said, for what I'm asking for, generally, please no gross-out humor, cruelty to animals, darkfic, rape/backstories of being molested as a child, character bashing, or issuefic.

Hello, and thank you for even considering one of my rare ships! My AO3 name is Aeriel and I am ridiculously delighted by the prospect of getting something for one of these ships, whose popularity ranges from 'a fond minority' to 'lol nobody cares'. I tried to make my requests the same size but unfortunately I did not entirely succeed. Please don't think that means I'm less interested in the ones that I said less about! Some of these pairings I got into quite recently and some of them I've been thinking about for so long that I sort of forgot how to explain what I liked about them and thus they ended up shorter.

As a general rule, I am okay with everything from G rated hand holding to explicit shenanigans, though I would rather no underage sex stuff, and no non-con, though with the Death Note ships I totally understand if you want to edge into dub-con. If you are leaning towards writing porn, I would like at least a little bit of story with it. If you are leaning towards not writing porn, no problem!

(I am doing far too many exchanges this summer, so this is the first of several letters. I apologize to my flist for this sudden shocking burst of activity)

Hello! And thank you for considering writing one of my fandoms. I promise I'm quite easy to please, and I'm very excited about all of these canons even if I've written slightly more about some of them than others. Obviously any ideas I suggest are just ideas, not demands, so don't worry!

Note that if you wish to stalk for further reading about these fandoms I have previously requested (and received lovely fic for) Leviathan over on Livejournal, and the same goes for Chrestomanci, but I don't believe I've done so for Oz or Blossom Culp.

aerielpembroke: (anime aeriel is freaked out)
So, I've been making my way through the last of Jacqueline Carey's three trilogies, having recently finished Naamah's Curse on the train, which was okay but mostly unremarkable, and now deep into Naamah's Blessing, which has taken a sharp left turn into absolutely batshit insane.

Hello writer, and anyone else poking around! If we've been matched on one of these fandoms, you clearly have excellent taste, and I shall be delighted to see what you come up with!

I've organized my requests alphabetically, and I promise I am enthusiastic about all of them, even if I rambled more about some than others. I did request Kuroshitsuji twice, but that's because I had two very different prompt ideas that I wanted and realized I didn't have to choose, not because I'm more interested in Kuroshitsuji fic than Fire Emblem fic or Kyou Kara Maou fic, so if we didn't match on Kuroshitsuji, don't be intimidated!

It's the sort of time now where lots of things I'm looking forward to are alllmost there but not yet happened, like the new chapter of Kuroshitsuji is allmost out and the school semester is allmost over (though I'm also dreading that), and Not Ready For Primetime is allmost open for signups (almost done with my letter in fact).

But of course, some things are already out, so I might as well talk about them.

aerielpembroke: (anime aeriel is freaked out)
So Kuroshitsuji chapter 91 came out! At last! And I practically devoured it- I actually shouted "No!" when I got to "Continues next month". Teasing us with Ciel developments like that- we better actually get the rest of that scene in April and not just cut to something else. I am loving this new relationship between Finn and Ciel, it's almost interesting enough to make up for the fact that Ciel isn't speaking to Sebastian. Sullivan continues to be kind of amazing, and love the new dress, though she looked pretty great before. But ugh, I am already dying for the next chapter.

In the meantime, I've been watching Kyou Kara Maou, (because I am so late to parties that they may not actually be happening anymore) and am almost at the end of season two, aka the part where Wolfram gets possessed and no. one. notices. For the sake of my sanity, I choose to believe Cheri noticed at least, because come on! He suddenly stops yelling and starts staring wistfully out of windows? Very not Wolfram. The Shori plotline was interesting at first but it's starting to get old having Yuuri's brother jump out and yell at Yuuri for wanting to live his life basically. He's so overprotective, I'm surprised if incest fic for the two of them doesn't already exist. Overall I like the show but I like it best when it's really wallowing in absurdity like the beebear episode, so I'll be happy to see the OVAs.

I am also deep into Naamah's Kiss by Jacqueline Carey and I'm still kind of not sure if I like Moirin? I don't actively dislike her, but at the same time I'm not growing fond of her the way I did with Imriel and Phédre. It's weird. I am terrified that Jehanne is going to die in childbirth though, because I know that she dies, but I don't know how, and that seems like an annoyingly convenient way to get rid of her. Raphael is The Worst and I am terribly glad it looks like he's going to be the villain and not the love interest.

And I think that's everything I've been looking at? For now, anyway.

Some anons expressed interest in a friending meme, and since I for one always mean to participate in those but never manage to get around to posting, as an incentive and also because I don't mind "outing" myself... here we are!

This is a friending meme for fail_fandomanon. I also put up a post on LJ at http://ladyairy.livejournal.com/57859.html. I would do one for tumblr too, except that I still have no clue how tumblr works. Sorry!

Hello, writer, and anyone else poking around. If we've been matched on one of these fandoms, you obviously have the best taste, and I shall be delighted to see what you come up with!

Generally speaking, there's a few things that I'm not big on, the weirdest one is love confessions. I know I mentioned a few potential ships, but whether you decide to write those or not, I'd rather there wasn't a confession scene. I'd also rather there not be super graphic violence or non-canonical character death. Otherwise, as follows are my requests in alphabetical order.
