I've been writing fanfiction since my teens, with a long hiatus in my early twenties. Since coming back to it in 2015 I've written in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars fandoms, as well as for Hannibal, Dredd, The Revenant, Overwatch, Ex Machina, Venom, and one or two other odds and ends. I wrote a silly Venom sex fic that got pretty big. I do Yuletide exchange and a few others, and you can read my letters here on DW if the mood strikes you.

The majority of what I write is 18+, and I do write a lot of darkfic including dubcon, age gaps and villains. If you're under 18, you really shouldn't be following me. If you're new here, comment and introduce yourself!

Hello writer/s! I'm Lingua, and you can find me as linguamortua on the AO3.

General information

Things I like in fic: I am an avid consumer of darkfic; I read and write dubcon, manipulation, age differences, moral grey areas and dilemmas, power plays, secrets, lies, and messed up power dynamics. Plot twists, trope inversion and clever metatextual references are all great fun for me. Generally I prefer my fic to be canon-compliant or canon-adjacent.

Things I don't want to receive: pregnancy or mpreg, forced feminization, fluff, kidfic. I don't like anything which focuses on having or coping with a mental illness, especially depression, but realistic references to canon mental illness is fine. I'm not wild about M/f. More specifically: please, no pet names, aggressive verbal slurs or humiliation, medical kink or settings, lifestyle BDSM, polyamory, A/B/O, scat, watersports or incest.

Aubrey/Maturin series - Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin
Secret Relationship, Military Uniforms, First Time, Clothed Sex, Resolved Sexual Tension, Having to Stay Quiet/Quiet Sex, Guilt Over Desire Due to it Being Illegal or Immoral, Blow Jobs, Forbidden/Secret Relationships

For this pairing I would really like something canon-compliant. My favourite thing about the books is the attention to detail surrounding the time period, and particularly the boundaries of appropriate language, behaviour and friendship between the characters. I'm curious to know: what happens when Jack and Stephen realise that obviously Something Must Be Done about all the sexual tension. Who cracks first? Do either of them have relevant experience? Are they aboard ship or on land? What's the aftermath of their first time like? If that idea doesn't work for you, I'm interested in how they might pursue a secret relationship while adhering to the mores of the time. Or, what happens when Diana enters the picture? Does she catch on? Does she care?

Marvel Cinematic Universe - Frank Castle/Billy Russo
Lovers To Enemies, Enemies With Benefits, Spit As Lube, Rough Sex, Rough Sex to Stave Off Other Violent Urges, Choking/Asphyxiation, Forced Deepthroat/Choking on a Dick, Biting, Anal Sex, Hate Sex, Maybe-It's-Not-Hate-Sex Sex, Loyalty Kink, Dubiously Consensual, Loyalty Kink, Dubious Consent Due To Amnesia

This pairing is physically murdering me and also my emotions right now. I love how Frank is arguably the only person Billy is capable of caring about pre-season two. I love how they were besties and are now worsties. I love the weird way Ben Barnes opted to gaze adoringly at Jon Bernthal - me too, buddy, me too. A lot of my tags for this pairing are pretty brutal, but I would also enjoy a fic where the tensions between them in season one bubble to the top in ANY way. The contrast between how inseparable they used to be, and how sharply Frank's family's deaths drove them apart is a great storyline. (With that said, I struggled with a lot of season two, and if you matched with me on this pairing I would really appreciate if you tried to avoid as much of the 'facial disfigurement' storyline as possible. Sorry; I know this makes life hard but it's a personally tricky topic for me. Referencing his appearance is fine for me, but digging into the emotional impact is going to be very hard for me to read.)

Venom (2018) - Eddie Brock/Carlton Drake, Carlton Drake/Riot Symbiote
Mutual Aphrodisiac-Induced Dubcon, Sex Pollen, Tentacles, Object Insertion, Large insertions, Enemy Lovers, Anal Sex, Double Penetration, Sex as a Bargaining Chip, Sex as an Assertion of Dominance, Aliens Made Them Do It, Alien Gender/Sexuality, Xeno

Love me some sex pollen, and I think Eddie/Carlton might just be the perfect pairing for it! Pretty sure that neither of them would voluntarily get it on. In this situation, I don't mind if the symbiotes are present or not - writer's choice. It could easily be set pre-symbiotes. Canon sets us up nicely for this pairing; I'm interested to see what you choose to do. We have an awful lot of Eddie/Venom fic out there, so what does weird tentacle sex look like for Carlton and his new best alien buddy? Has Carlton had the time or interest in flings and romance before? Does Riot change that? Or is Carlton a certified slut trying to persuade his ultra-focused evil alien symbiote to give it to him? Is one of them manipulating the other? Is it even consensual? I LEAVE ALL THS UP TO YOU.

Overall

An underwhelming spring and summer, finally gaining momentum midway through autumn. The first three fics I posted this year were actually written in 2017, with the Roadrat in particular sitting around as a WIP for a very long time. Everything I wrote until October was for an exchange, and in fact the Han/Lando in August is a) only half finished and b) a defaulted exchange fic. The Kylux in October was a real albatross and was also for an organised event. I really only woke up when I saw CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE VENOM - then November and December were really quite good, from a writing perspective.


Most popular story

Vessel, by an insane stretch. It's probably safe to say nothing I'll ever write in the future will get that kind of attention. As of today it has (goes to check) 9141 kudos.


Story most underappreciated by the universe

The Belly of the Beast, I guess. But it's a non-existent fandom and a very spicy, trashy kind of porn. So I didn't have high hopes.


Most controversial story

I avoided all wank with extreme dexterity this year, although I was anticipating problems with Hooked. Roadrat fandom is obnoxiously fluffy for a pair of actual, canonical murder arsonists. Predicting backlash actually held up the completion of this fic by several months, which is unusual for me.


Hardest story to write?

Beyond Reasonable Doubt. Hated writing it, felt bad for my Big Bang artist having to make art for it, would happily delete it. It needed more research of the kind that I find tedious, so I skimped on that and it's a weak story. The plot could support a good, angsty, romantic novella, but I tapped out at 8k and hit the post button.


Favorite title?

Steal My Heart (Grand Theft Lotho). It's still unfinished, but I started with the title which I thought was perfect for a Han/Lando heist fic. I want to get it completed, if only to do that title justice.


Favorite line/scene?

This is it—this is it!—the brilliant, electric moment when he’s the sole focus of Roadhog’s violent attentions. Any of his attentions are good, and almost always Roadhog’s not hurting him. But the man who was once called Mako Rutledge, in the Before time, is a specialist in violence. Really takes his time over it. A connoisseur. When Roadhog’s hurting you, he’s paying real good attention to you.

I desperately wanted to write something from Junkrat's POV - something that did justice to his weird, twitchy character design and voice acting, but also gave a sense of what an actual man who had endured what he had might be like. He has a bit of a comic relief vibe in the game, too, a kind of levity. The balance was between that levity and the fact that he's, you know a double-amputee explosives expert wandering the post-apocalyptic Australian outback Mad Max-style. Ultimately I was pleased with the whole fic; this little segment in particular rang true to me and, it seemed, the people who read it.


Favorite character to write about this year

I want to say Frank Castle, but honestly I was just thirst-writing a lot of words about Jon Bernthal, okay, just don't look at me.


Looking back, did you write more stories than you thought you would this year, fewer than you thought, or about what you predicted?

I wouldn't say I was optimistic about my likely output this year, but I disappointed even myself until October.


What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted? What fic didn't you expect to write?

I can't say I really expected to write The Belly of the Beast, a 3500-word porn fest set inside a World War Two tank. I would characterise that as 'unexpected', yes. I wrote it in a single day, and posted it without proof-reading. So that was definitely a thing that happened that was not on my 2018 list of goals and resolutions.


Story that could have been better?

Beyond Reasonable Doubt, Grand Theft Lotho (unfinished), Consume Me (unfinished). I mean, all of it, really. But especially those three.


Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?

Not really. This was not a year for risks. Talk to me again at the end of 2019, after I completed [TOP SECRET REDACTED PUNISHER FIC]. One notable trend, though, was that I started actively tagging for PTSD in my fics. I think you could go back to the very beginning and tag solidly 75% of my fics with that tag, but now I actually know that I'm doing the thing and may therefore be doing the thing more mindfully and better.


Fics you wanted to write but didn't

My whole WIP list. The second part of Grand Theft Lotho. Anything good?


What's next for 2019

I signed up for [community profile] getyourwordsout at the 150,000 word level, so I'm pledging to write an average of 411 words a day. I think I'm ready, having dealt with some other areas of my life in 2016 and 2017, to amp up my wordcount again. I want to finish some unfinished things, for sure. I also need to get into the habit of writing ALL of a longer piece before posting it.

Longer fic in general is a goal - I know I can bang out passable 3000-5000 word PWPs but I want to develop my skills in plot. Plus, I'd like to find someone who is a more skilled writer and storycrafter than me to help beta and work on my actual literary skills, as opposed to just coasting on reasonably good prose and porn.

General information:

Plot twists, trope inversion and clever metatextual references are also great fun for me. Generally I prefer my fic to be canon-compliant or canon-adjacent, although I have been surprised by innovative AUs before. I love femslash and woman-centric fic! Sex and PWPs are more than fine by me. Smut things I like: size differences, choking, dirty talk, cunnilingus, D/s elements (although rarely formal D/s play, especially when it's M/f).

Things I don't want to receive: pregnancy or mpreg, forced feminization, medical stuff sexual or not, public humiliation, fluff, seasonal fics, kidfic. I don't like anything which focuses on having or coping with a mental illness, but realistic references to canon mental illness is fine. I'm not wild about M/f. More specifically: please, no pet names, lifestyle BDSM, A/B/O, scat, watersports or incest.


Fandoms and pairings:

Marvel Cinematic Universe
Brock Rumlow/Jack Rollins


This should be a slam dunk for you because I do love a good old-fashioned hatefucking dynamic. My AO3 is only a click away if you need a sense of what I like for Hydra husbands. Short of gore, there's really nothing too gross for these boys to do to each other, with the obvious exceptions of my DNWs. I always adore an undercurrent of unrequited feelings especially when those feelings have to be kept secret for Bad Hydra Reasons. Canon - what we have of it - is important for me in this pairing. They really inhabit this straitjacket of military masculinity and what I like is when that gets disrupted by their feelings (antagonistic or romantic) for one another. Fighting as foreplay, dubious/un-negotiated fuckery, threats of further violence, wilfully degrading each other - it's all good.


Luke Cage
Shades Alvarez/Cornell 'Cottonmouth' Stokes
Shades Alvarez/Darius 'Comanche' Jones


I do like a good sinister, lurking henchman. Shades particularly intrigues me because he's in a curious position relative to Stokes, with an element of power via a shadowy master. There have been some great fics bouncing off the end of season 2 with Shades and Mariah, and what all my favourite fics have in common is showing how Shades might be willing to temporarily subordinate himself to someone for an advantageous position later in the game.
  • What does Stokes want from Shades, and what price will Shades exact for it?
  • Or, conversely, what might Shades have to do in order to get close to Stokes?
  • Can Shades serve two masters without getting found out?
  • I'd also be interested in a fic where Shades plays Mariah and Stokes off against one another.
I was amazed by the Shades/Comanche storyline. Like, staring-at-my-screen-with-mouth-open amazed. If you're so inspired, tell me about their relationship. How it begins, how they maintain it in prison, how it ends. I'd also love an alternate path, where Shades has to juggle Mariah and Comanche at the same time, without Mariah finding out. I guess my overwhelming question with Shades is, is he secretly a deeply empathetic and easily-romanced person in the Wrong Job, or does he habitually sexually manipulate people of all genders to get what he wants? Or both?!


The Punisher
Frank Castle/Billy Russo

There was never any hope for me with this wretched TV series. Frank and Billy have some really great dynamics that I would love to see you explore:
  • Loyalty and betrayal
  • Past history (exactly how much time do they spend dicking each other down in the Middle East? - please advise)
  • Their relationship with Curtis
  • What would have happened had Frank left the Marine Corp when Billy did? What if they were business partners?
  • What would have happened if Frank had taken up Billy's offer of making him disappear?
  • And all porn is good porn, let's be honest
For this pairing in particular, I would really like to pretend that the season finale doesn't exist. I found it kind of dispiriting; facial deformity as a signifier of evil is very uncomfortable for me. Let's keep Billy pretty for now :)


Fury
Norman "Machine" Ellison/Grady "Coon-Ass" Travis
Boyd "Bible" Swan/Grady "Coon-Ass" Travis


I have no excuse. If you're reading this letter to actually write either of these pairings: bless you, you are a hero of our times. I would like to see fic for these pairings that is reasonably canon-compliant, or at least situationally believable - please, no AUs. The great strength of the film was its grit and authenticity, and I enjoyed the interpersonal and group dynamics of the tank crew in that context too much to disrupt it.

Boyd and Grady have a really fascinating relationship, in that there's this deep, intimate brotherhood going on. Fic about them wouldn't have to be sexual, but they definitely have a unique bond that is clearly signposted by both the actors. Why did the deeply religious dude and the anarchic, badly-behaved loader end up arguably the closest of all the crew?

Grady and Norman is just, you know, this gross thing I have. I'm not sure what I want with it, but I do know that Norman would be an amazing target for a loose cannon like Grady. Hazing the new boy?


Ex Machina
Ava/Kyoko
Ava & Kyoko


I've embarked on a one-woman quest to write, or cause to be written, as much about Ava and Kyoko as I can. Especially Kyoko. I would be really interested in any headcanons you want to bring to the table and expand, to be honest with you! The less directly the story deals with Nathan and Caleb, the better. They got their two hours in the movie, you know? I do absolutely see these two as having a sexual or romantic element to their relationship, but I could just as easily enjoy a story about them living, scheming or recreating together.


The 100
Marcus Kane/John Murphy


Full disclosure: I never watched past the end of season two. This is one of the rare times when an AU might work for me! I recall watching this and being delighted by a) how ridiculous it was and b) the infinite smut potential of Jackbooted Space Thugs vs Feral Teens. Never did get around to writing fic, but I was recently inspired by a Kane/Murphy fic and decided to throw this out into the universe!

Tropes and ideas that would be fun for these two:
  • Inadvisable dating choices regarding age gaps and power
  • Something where Kane is required to discipline Murphy (this would work well in-universe, I think)
  • Murphy knows a secret about Kane and is willing to blackmail him
  • A story where Kane is unsubtly attracted to Murphy, and Murphy knows he has all the power

‘You’ve hurt me before.’

‘Fuck,’ Frank cursed. He wet his lips with his tongue. ‘Could make it up to you in a nicer way.’

‘But you’re not a nice man.’


Finally finished this little PWP, right before the end of the calendar year!
linguamortua: (Default)
I spent all day yesterday combing through the Yuletide collection marking things for later, reading and commenting. A good crop this year! For once, I'm stirring myself to make a real rec list. Wow, Dreamwidth, you're making me produce real content. Here's my top recs, in no particular order.

Except that top billing goes to my gift, of course. As with the last year I requested sad Jesuit boys who probably have fleas and tuberculosis. Some kind anonymous person delivered with this:

the downtrodden, [1.5k, Silence,
Francisco Garrpe & Sebastião Rodrigues]
This nails the tone of Silence and pings all the right buttons; it's tragic and full of faith and suffering. You know, the good stuff.

Night comes a calling, [9k, The Night Manager, Jonathan Pine/Richard Roper]
I didn't love the book and I never saw the TV show, so this fic is surprisingly everything I could have wanted from a le Carré fandom! It's dripping with resentment and twisty plot and class issues, and the sex is both weird, hot and super in-character. If you leave your comfort zone for one fic this Yuletide, make it this one.

Old-Fashioned, [6k, The Punisher, Frank Castle/Karen Page]
Some tasty Frank/Karen angst, with a comforting but canon-appropriate ending. A sweet and poignant read.

Prickly Situation, [1.5k, Master & Commander, Stephen Maturin/Jack Aubrey]
Tone-perfect almost-sickfic, with a natural history lesson from Maturin that O'Brian could have written himself.

I Believe the Children are Our Future, [1.3k, BlacKkKlansman, Flip Zimmerman/Ron Stallworth]
I can't believe that I'm going to recommend mpreg but WHOOP THERE IT IS ON MY REC LIST. Guys this is, um, really good. It's really good. You should read it.

Radioactive, [1.8k, Dredd, Cassandra Anderson]
Anderson gets through a lot of partners. A neat story that shows Dredd observing her progress as a Judge, and approving.

adrenaline momentum, [1.3k, Venom, Eddie/Venom]
Venom gets jealous when people smile at Eddie on the street. They, uh, work it out.

Natus Est, [5.8k, Ex Machina, gen]
If you were put off by the ending of Ex Machina, or wanted something more, here it is!

warm bodies, [1k, Venom, Eddie/Venom]
"Cats are kind of like dogs, except meaner and more independent, and they sometimes bring dead things back to their owners as presents."

CATS SOUND SMART.

"You'd think so," Eddie says.

All Set For Extinction, [1.5k, Ex Machina, Ava & Kyoko]

Call Me by Your Name
Elio/Oliver
 
I was so taken with how sensuous and patient this film was, and how well it captured the unspeakable nightmare of being seventeen. What a great adaptation of a great book. One thing I especially enjoyed was Elio's teenage tendency to treat Oliver appallingly because he couldn't work out how to deal with him. The physicality of both Oliver and Elio is lovely, too - there are times when they shove each other and wrestle that you're reminded that Oliver is really not past that kind of rough-housing play either.
 
What would I like in a fic? Both the book and film were very much from Elio's perspective, so something that tells us what Oliver was thinking would be brilliant. Alternatively, take Elio's basically non-stop internal monologue and run with it. For this pairing, I am not really fussy about whether or not penetration happens. If it does, a first-time fic could be neat. More generally speaking, I love me an overwhelmed twink who doesn't know what to do with himself. I would be crazy about a fic where they have to be very quiet while having sex. I would also love anything in which Elio realises that what he thinks are horrible perversions are actually quite commonplace (Oliver: that's hilarious, have you ever thought about this). Also: dirty talk would be just great for this pairing.
 
 
Return to Night - Mary Renault
Hilary Mansell/Julian Fleming
 
Julian is kind of obnoxious but so wretchedly adorable. I crave fic that makes him suffer in some way, or in which Hilary deliberately keeps him off-balance. Although the fic is set in an historical period where Hilary, as a doctor, is an anomaly among women, I think her age and experience gives her power over him and I would welcome any fic that explored that. I do dearly love F/m and he's kind of the perfect candidate.
 
 
Silence (2016)
Cristóvão Ferreira, Francisco Garrpe, Kichijiro, Sebastião Rodrigues
 
Past letters will tell you that I love this movie for the religious and physical suffering and the general sense of futility. Tropes or themes I would love to see in this:
 
  • A fic set when Rodrigues and Garrupe first met, or when they were back in Portugal.
  • A story that shows their relationship with Ferreira.
  • Ferreira has always liked one of them more than the other.
  • An alternate story where they escape.
  • Losing or regaining faith.
  • Anything that expands on Kichijiro and his strategy for handling the Jesuits
 
 
Luke Cage
Cornell Cottonmouth Stokes, Darius "Comanche" Jones,  Mariah Dillard, Shades Alvarez 
 
I do like a good sinister, lurking henchman. Shades particularly intrigues me because he's in a curious position relative to Stokes, with an element of power via a shadowy master. There have been some great fics bouncing off the end of season 2 with Shades and Mariah, and what all my favourite fics have in common is showing how Shades might be willing to temporarily subordinate himself to someone for an advantageous position later in the game. 
 
  • What does Stokes want from Shades, and what price will Shades exact for it?
  • Or, conversely, what might Shades have to do in order to get close to Stokes?
  • Can Shades serve two masters - or mistresses - without getting found out?
  • I'd also be interested in a fic where Shades plays Mariah and Stokes off against one another.

Venom (Movie 2018)
Eddie Brock/Venom Symbiote
 
Seeing the film threw me back about ten years when I got briefly into one of the unfortunately less sexy comic book runs. Wow, this is a great pairing. I'm a darkfic kind of gal, so if that's your bag then go nuts with this pairing. If not, PWP is always great, particularly if weird alien tentacle freakiness or a sex pollen type vibe is something you'd write. Otherwise - surprise me! Y'know, just fuck me up.

Fandoms & Prompts

Silence

Francisco Garrupe/Sebastião Rodrigues

Religious suffering is a whole delicious genre for me. Obviously they are unworldly Jesuit boys who've trekked halfway around the world to find Daddy their mentor figure, and they get real close along the way. Tropes or themes I would love to see in this:
  • A fic set when they first met, or when they were back in Portugal.
  • A story that shows their relationship with Ferreira.
  • Ferreira has always liked one of them more than the other.
  • An alternate story where they escape.
  • Losing or regaining faith.

Overwatch

Junkrat/Roadhog

Real talk: both of these guys are horrible people and I would prefer a fic that kept them both that way. If you can't make yourself write them as Bad, I would rather not read anything fluffy. For something less shippy, their thieving, exploding backstory would be a lot of fun! Or, it would be interesting to see how the other members of Overwatch view them, and tolerate them, out in the field.

Now that we have new canon about the Queen of Junkertown and Junkertown's arena, a fic about that could be cool.


Solo: A Star Wars Story

Qi'Ra/Dryden Vos, Lando Calrissian/Han Solo

Special note here: if you're going to write Qi'Ra/Dryden Vos, it would be super important to me to avoid M/f. Femdom is all good. Something about Qi'Ra's elusive backstory would be great, or jobs she's done as Vos's lieutenant. Why does he trust her? What did he see in her initially?

I love anything Han/Lando, so you know. Like, anything.

I'm just buzzing from the Solo movie with these two flirting the whole way through their little adventure. I adore the dynamic between these two, in which Han is always a bit prickly and a human disaster, and Lando transcends into a handsome, well-put together adult with, like, a shoe rack and a special pair of moustache scissors. I've been thinking about:
  • A story that expands on their first meeting
  • A heist story of some kind - especially one that goes wrong
  • Han and Lando flying together for a while
  • What if Han tries to go legitimate when Lando does?
  • Han's the jealous type, I think
  • Anything in which Han ruthlessly sabotages all of his shots at happiness

Request 2 - Silence

Francisco Garrupe/Sebastião Rodrigues

Religious suffering is a whole delicious genre for me. Obviously they are unworldly Jesuit boys who've trekked halfway around the world to find Daddy their mentor figure, and they get real close along the way. Tropes or themes I would love to see in this:
  • A fic set when they first met, or when they were back in Portugal
  • One of them is more experienced than the other
  • The classic shame wank :)
  • Ferreira has always liked one of them more than the other

Request 3 - Star Wars Sequel Trilogy

Cardinal/Armitage Hux

My thoughts on this pairing are a bit unformed; all I know is that I love the fleeting glimpses of humanity in Cardinal that are not at all evident in Hux. I'm interested in a story that has Hux exploiting that humanity for his own purposes. As there's practically no fic out there about these two, I'd invite you to write the story that you want to see in the world, I guess? I do like my bad guys to be bad, though, if that helps constrain it.

Request 4 - Luke Cage

Shades Alvarez/Cornell 'Cottonmouth' Stokes

I do like a good sinister, lurking henchman. Shades particularly intrigues me because he's in a curious position relative to Stokes, with an element of power via a shadowy master. There have been some great fics bouncing off the end of season 2 with Shades and Mariah, and what all my favourite fics have in common is showing how Shades might be willing to temporarily subordinate himself to someone for an advantageous position later in the game.
  • What does Stokes want from Shades, and what price will Shades exact for it?
  • Or, conversely, what might Shades have to do in order to get close to Stokes?
  • Can Shades serve two masters without getting found out?
  • I'd also be interested in a fic where Shades plays Mariah and Stokes off against one another.

General information

Things I like in fic: I am an avid consumer of darkfic; I read and write dubcon, manipulation, age differences, moral grey areas and dilemmas, power plays, secrets, lies, and messed up dynamics. Plot twists, trope inversion and clever metatextual references are also great fun for me. Generally I prefer my fic to be canon-compliant or canon-adjacent, although I have been surprised by innovative AUs before. I love femslash and woman-centric fic! Sex and PWPs are more than fine by me. Smut things I like: size differences, choking, dirty talk, cunnilingus, D/s elements (although rarely formal D/s play, especially when it's M/f).

Things I don't want to receive: pregnancy or mpreg, forced feminization, public humiliation, fluff, seasonal fics, kidfic. I don't like anything which focuses on having or coping with a mental illness, especially depression, but realistic references to canon mental illness is fine. I'm not wild about M/f. More specifically: please, no pet names, lifestyle BDSM, A/B/O, scat, watersports or incest.

Call Me By Your Name

Oliver/Elio
Oral Fixation, Neck Kissing, Hair-pulling, Sexual Experimentation, Rimming, Bruises, Spanking, Clothes pulled out of the way, Extended Foreplay, Dry Humping, Mutual Masturbation, Mirror Masturbation, Making Out, Any Warning

I was so taken with how sensuous and patient this film was, and how well it captured the unspeakable nightmare of being seventeen. What a great adaptation of a great book. One thing I especially enjoyed was Elio's teenage tendency to treat Oliver appallingly because he couldn't work out how to deal with him. The physicality of both Oliver and Elio is lovely, too - there are times when they shove each other and wrestle that you're reminded that Oliver is really not past that kind of rough-housing play either.

What would I like in a fic? Both the book and film were very much from Elio's perspective, so something that tells us what Oliver was thinking would be brilliant. Alternatively, take Elio's basically non-stop internal monologue and run with it. For this pairing, I am not really fussy about whether or not penetration happens. If it does, a first-time fic could be neat. More generally speaking, I love me an overwhelmed twink who doesn't know what to do with himself. I would be crazy about a fic where they have to be very quiet while having sex. I would also love anything in which Elio realises that what he thinks are horrible perversions are actually quite commonplace (Oliver: that's hilarious, have you ever thought about this). Also: dirty talk would be just great for this pairing.


Silence

Francisco Garrupe/Sebastião Rodrigues
Shame in Sexual Desires, Shame/Comfort, Sexual Inexperience, Experienced/Inexperienced, Mutual Masturbation, Oral Sex, Non-Consensual Oral Sex, Forbidden/Secret Relationships, Religious Guilt During Sex, Any Warning

Religious suffering is a whole delicious genre for me. Obviously they are unworldly Jesuit boys who've trekked halfway around the world to find Daddy their mentor figure, and they get real close along the way. Tropes or themes I would love to see in this:

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Brock Rumlow/Jack Rollins
Rough Sex, Choking on a Dick, Fighting As Foreplay, Face Slapping, Rough Kissing, Hate Sex, Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms, Anal Sex, Biting, Competitiveness in Bed, Military discipline, Forbidden/Secret Relationships, Any Warning

This should be a slam dunk for you because I do love a good old-fashioned hatefucking dynamic. My AO3 is only a click away if you need a sense of what I like for Hydra husbands. Short of gore, there's really nothing too gross for these boys to do to each other, with the obvious exceptions of my DNWs. I always adore an undercurrent of unrequited feelings especially when those feelings have to be kept secret for Bad Hydra Reasons. Canon - what we have of it - is important for me in this pairing. They really inhabit this straitjacket of military masculinity and what I like is when that gets disrupted by their feelings (antagonistic or romantic) for one another. Fighting as foreplay, dubious/un-negotiated fuckery, threats of further violence, wilfully degrading each other - it's all good.


Ex Machina

Any Relationship
Power Dynamics, Rough Sex, Unwilling Arousal, Pretending to Be a Sex Robot, Robot Sex, Forbidden/Secret Relationships, Voyeurism, Voyeur Gives Directions, Dirty Talk, Cunnilingus, Oral Sex, Femdom, Erotic Electrostimulation, Forced to Confess Sexual Fantasies to Desired Partner, Any Relationship, Any Warning

There are so many great options and nuances for this fandom generally, and I encourage you to roll with the darkness of the canon. I will say that while I like the idea of Nathan as a voyeur, I'm not really interested in group sex.

Generally, I characterise Nathan as manipulative and kinky, and Caleb as barely-experienced and submissive. I prefer to see Ava and Kyoko together (give those poor lady robots a break from Nathan) but if you pair them with the guys I shy away from anything that looks like ownership or male domination.

Some ideas:
  • Caleb pretending to be a robot to get Nathan off
  • Nathan stage-directing and watching some weird and baroque sex game with two of the others
  • Ava and Kyoko hidden relationship fic
  • Caleb is obviously a spineless bottom - how about Ava dominating him? (Bonus points if she does it without touching him.)

Fandoms & Prompts

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Relationship: Chirrut Imwe/Baze Malbus
I really love early-years fics for this pairing; how did they meet, did they know they were destined for the romance of the century, were they parted, how did they end up hanging around Jedha waiting for Adventure? I'm okay with canonical death for them.

Relationship: Cassian Andor/Orson Krennic
Clearly this is a pairing that comes with a bunch of weird dynamics, unless it goes hard canon divergence (which I often don't love). I would love to see a story that delves into the moral complexities of being a compromised spy. Anything with manipulation, self-doubt and fears about getting caught would be amazing.

Worldbuilding: Jedha and Worldbuilding: Undercover Agents
Surprise me!


Star Wars Sequel Trilogy

Relationship: Armitage Hux/Kylo Ren
My favourite dynamic for this one is antagonistic. Please, no fluffy or domestic fics in particular for this pairing. I've written a lot of Kylux so if you're stuck you can peruse my AO3 and see where my mind always takes me for them.

Character: Snoke
I have all the questions about Snoke. What or who is here, where does he come from, what drives him? Is he really dead? What does he really think about Kylo and Hux? Also why does he always look so baller in a gold robe, who styles this creature?

Relationship: Poe Dameron/Kylo Ren
There's a strong fandom theory that they knew each other back in the day.I wouldn't be averse to teenage romance, or a secret, ongoing, long distance relationship that nobody can ever find out about. If you want to go (mostly) canon accurate PWP, I'd be into that too. Something incredibly shamey and secretive would be great.

Worldbuilding: Knights of Ren
What about some kind of official briefing document about the Knights? Or something epistolary between them and Kylo? What is their chain of command? Does Snoke control them? What species are they? Did they defect with Kylo from Luke's training facility?


Mass Effect Trilogy

Relationship: Garrus Vakarian/Female Shepard
Full disclosure: I haven't replayed this game in a long time, but I saw the pairing and remembered how much I loved Garrus in my playthrough! If you matched on this, surprise me!


Star Wars Original Trilogy

Relationship: Lando Calrissian/Han Solo
I adore the dynamic between these two, in which Han is always a bit prickly and a human disaster, and Lando transcends into a handsome, well-put together adult with, like, a shoe rack and a special pair of moustache scissors. Their past fascinates me; how did they meet, what was their business relationship like, and what were the changes in their relationship when Lando went legit?

Character: Lando Calrissian
See above - I think he's such a neat character and it would delight me to receive a short story that tells me something new about him or develops him in a way that the movies didn't.

Fandoms & Prompts

Rogue One 
Galen Erso/Orson Krennic

These two have a history, and I want to know exactly what it is. I'd be really interested in something that took them back to the first time they met. Did they get along? Did they work together? Study together? When precisely did Krennic go bad - or was he always a horror? What moral compromises did Galen make? Did Krennic pressure him into them? What kind of a relationship were they able to have?

It would be fascinating to me to read a fic that explores how their personal relationship impacts each man's moral choices.


Blade Runner
K/Deckard

If they hadn't been immediately caught, what kind of interactions might these two men have had in the old hotel? (Wow, that's a leading question!) Does Deckard see K as human, or is he a particularly attractive ambulatory convenience? Is Deckard really human? There are so many similarities and differences in between these two.


Overwatch 
Junkrat/Roadhog

Real talk: both of these guys are horrible people and I would prefer a fic that kept them both that way. If you can't make yourself write them as Bad, I would rather not read anything fluffy. For something less shippy, their thieving, exploding backstory would be a lot of fun! Or, it would be interesting to see how the other members of Overwatch view them, and tolerate them, out in the field.

Fandoms & Prompts

Dredd
Cassandra Anderson/Madeline Madrigal

What appeals to me about this pairing is the possible character readings. Cassandra, by dint of her particular gift, is more worldly than she seems. Ma-ma, one could argue, goes rogue following lengthy victimisation. I'm interested in the moral shades of grey to be unpacked. A story with these two doesn't have to include sex, but it might be a cool dynamic. Some ideas:
  • The hostage situation goes down very differently to the film. Does Cassandra bargain her way out instead of shooting her way out? Does she succumb to Stockholm Syndrome? Perhaps, believing she's failed to become a Judge, she entertains a better offer.
  • What if Anderson is the drug boss and Ma-Ma the trainee Judge?
  • Anderson lost her parents, and Ma-ma knows how it happened.

The Handmaiden
Hideko/Sook-hee

My precious girls! If you can write anything canon-verse, I will be in awe of you. I was thrilled by the happy ending of this movie, and would like any fic I receive for this match to be similar. Ideas:

After the end of the movie, Hideko and Sook-hee continue to be a pair of genius thieves and scammers.
Or, Hideko prefers a quiet, unassuming life; Sook-hee craves wealth and power.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
Amanda Brotzman/The Rowdy 3

If you match on this, then you are a unique unicorn of a human and I love you. Please let my best girl Amanda have four cute boyfriends who bang her in an unhygienic weirdo van. I just want her to have fun with her dudes. I'm hoping that looks like extremely enthusiastic sex (waive, please, my love of darkfic for this match), but if that doesn't work for you then 'fun' can look however you want it to look... preferably anarchic.


Silence
Francisco Garrupe/Sebastião Rodrigues

Religious suffering is a whole delicious genre for me. Obviously they are unworldly Jesuit boys who've trekked halfway around the world to find Daddy their mentor figure, and they get real close along the way. Tropes or themes I would love to see in this:

  • A fic set when they first met, or when they were back in Portugal.
  • A story that shows their relationship with Ferreira.
  • Ferreira has always liked one of them more than the other.
  • An alternate story where they escape.
  • Losing or regaining faith.

Fandoms & prompts

 
Aubrey-Maturin novels

Perhaps my favourite element of this series is the delicious interplay between Maturin and Villiers, although I'm partial to seeing Villiers and Sophia interact. 
  • How are they tormenting each other this week?
  • Are Diana and Sophia having a slightly incestuous affair? (Yes, so clearly yes.)
  • What if Villiers decided she was interested in learning the art of dissection?
  • Basically, anything with deception and malice and bickering and yet, somehow, a relationship that works.

Dredd

I am distraught that nobody nominated Ma-ma as a character, but let me vicariously enjoy her dastardly works through the sad, robotic eyes of the Clan Techie. I'm really down with anything that involves him for this fandom. Also:
  • What can Anderson see in his mind?
  • Does she go back for him later?
  • Does he escape? Where does he go? Can he even survive without Ma-ma?

Ex Machina

Nathan is horrible and sexy and Caleb has confused boners. This is 100% what I like. Let your imagination run wild.


Ghostbusters (2016)


For this fandom I deeply, deeply love the idea that Erin has never been with a woman until Holtzmann. This pairing deviates from my usually-dark interests; I just want my tiny gay ghostbusting daughters to be happy. Maybe a first time fic?


Return to Night

Julian is kind of obnoxious but so wretchedly adorable. I crave fic that makes him suffer in some way, or in which Hilary deliberately keeps him off-balance. Although the fic is set in an historical period where Hilary, as a doctor, is an anomaly among women, I think her age and experience gives her power over him and I would welcome any fic that explored that. Also: what if Hilary was having an affair with Lisa Clare? JUST SAYING. JUST THROWING IT OUT THERE.


The Next Big One

LET DANIEL AND BEN BE FLEETINGLY HAPPY AS THE WORLD BURNS. Or, you know, be awful to each other. 
  • Maybe one of them can't keep it in their pants?
  • One of them gets caught up in a risky disease-prevention activity and the other one worries like crazy.
  • A fic in which one of them contracts KBV?
  • ARGH THIS BOOK

If you've got this far in my letter, well done! I hope there's something in here that appeals to you. If in doubt, just write me some choking porn or something :)
