Dear Ship Swap Writer

Dear Ship Swap Writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! This is my first time doing Ship Swap, so I'm incredibly excited :)

If you'd like to stalk me during Ship Swap or want to ask me a question/for clarification, I mainly hang around tumblr and AO3 these days. On my AO3 you can see the fics I've bookmarked if that helps give you ideas or in figuring out the things I like, or you can check out my fic rec masterlist (still in progress) that may be easier to maneuver.

All of this is totally optional, but I know a lot of the time it helps to have some direction to go in, so I've included some likes, dislikes, prompts, and squee for your inspiration. Include whatever you like or none if nothing I mention suits your fancy! Go wild!

Tbh, I'm really easy. I will read pretty much anything and my likes run the gammut from "totally normal" to "rare and kind of bizarre" to "probably squicks a lot of people." So whatever you can come up with, chances are good that I'll like it! I'm good with any ratings and most pairing combinations (I've mentioned specific main ones I'd especially like to see below). I'm caught up on everything (except for Ultimate Spider-Man), so no need to worry about spoilers. Christmas themed fic isn't something that really interests me, but if that's what you want to write, that's fine too.

fluff, AUs (coffee shop, college, high school, supernatural creatures, thieves/con artists, whatever ya got I'll probably love it), smut, pining, fake/pretend relationships, antagonistic relationships that turn into love, intelligent characters (intelligence kink, language kink, competency kink, etc), kid fic (them as kids or them having kids, mpreg is ok too!), characters suddenly realizing they've been in love all along, domesticity/family, A/B/O verse, communication by snark, BDSM (especially aftercare), codependent friendships, get togethers/first times, soulmates

major character death, 1st person POV, crossovers (fusions with Harry Potter or The Sentinel or Leverage or something like that are fine, I'm just not a huge fan of the meeting the other characters thing), cancer fic, zombies, body horror, abuse in main pairings, infidelity

I'll try not to put particular emphasis on any of them as I'd love to get fic for whatever you feel most comfortable writing, so how much description or squeeing I do has no bearing on how much I want that fandom or character! For any of these, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like.

Book of Life - Joaquin Mondragon/Maria Posada/Manolo Sanchez
This movie was so adorable and the relationship between the three of them was amazing. I loved seeing their relationship progress from childhood friendship to love as they grew up, even without seeing Maria for so long. It would be really interesting to see more about Joaquin and Manolo's relationship while she was gone and how it developed when she returned. And really, just more Maria because she is kick ass.

Prompts: Maria sends the boys letters while she's in Spain. The three decide to expand their family. Maria and Manolo invite Jaoquin to join their relationship.

DCAU - Helena Bertinelli/Vic Sage, Shayera Hol/John Stewart, Shayera Hol/John Stewart/Mari McCabe
I absolutely loved Helena and Vic in JLU and Helena is one of my favorite DC characters. Something about them getting together or navigating through all the bumps in their relationship, especially with Vic's paranoia and Helena's stubbonness, would be great. I really like that their relationship isn't really typical, but that they work out anyway. For the other two ships, I'm basically interested in how they work their relationship(s) out among each other and along with being superheroes. If you go with Shayera/John, please don't fridge or villify Mari. More Shayera-centric fic would be great as well, especially when she was with Doctor Fate and dealing with her feelings of betraying both her people and her team.

Prompts: Helena and Vic start heroing together on the side, leading to friction with the Justice League. Shayera was pregnant when the Thangarians came to Earth, but she never told John so she ends up having the baby while staying with Doctor Fate. Cop AU where John, Maria, and/or Shayera are detectives.

Fantastic Four - Ben Grimm/Alicia Masters/Johnny Storm, Ben Grimm/Johnny Storm
My favorite part of the Fantastic Four movies is the banter between Ben and Johnny. That antagonism while still really caring for and supporting each other is so great to me and I would love to see more. I see Alicia as a really balancing force for the two of them and that adds a really interesting dynamic imo. If you go with Ben/Johnny, please don't fridge or villify Alicia.

Prompts: Johnny discovers that he's not as straight as he thought and Ben helps him figure things out. Ben and Alicia invite Johnny to join their relationship. Sue finds out about her brother's romantic partner(s).

The Flash -
Barry Allen/Eddie Thawne/Iris West
Iris' relationship with both of the boys in the show is just really nice. I love how strong Iris and Barry's friendship is, even when they're having problems or things get awkward. Eddie and Iris are adorable together and the way Eddie seems to follow after Barry is so sweet. I'd love to see something about the three of them figuring out how to all work in a relationship together, especially with Barry being the Flash. Something about Joe's reaction to the relationship would be great as well.

Prompt: Barry realizes he's not just in love with Iris, he may be in love with Eddie too. Eddie and Iris finally find out Barry is the Flash. Eddie and Iris have to reassure Barry of his place in their relationship because he feels like he doesn't belong or that they're just taking pity on him.

The Librarians -
Eve Baird/Cassandra Cillian, Cassandra Cillian/Ezekiel Jones/Jake Stone
This show is so so great and I absolutely love everything about Cassandra. I especially love the fairy tales episode where Cassandra was Prince Charming, so if you can work that in I would be extra excited! Or in the alternate timeline where Cassandra becomes basically queen, that would be so interesting to explore. There are some really interesting dynamics between all the characters and it would be great to see how they work out their trust issues and learn to work together as a team, and in whatever relationship.

Prompts: Eve's attraction to Cassandra doesn't end once they're out of the fairy tale. Cassandra, Ezekiel, and Jake go off on their own mission for the Library. They don't meet at the Library, but somehow they get together anyway.

Pacific Rim -
Raleigh Becket/Chuck Hansen/Mako Mori
I didn't consider this ship at first, but I think it's a super interesting dynamic. I love seeing how a relationship works out between drift partners and someone else because there are so many layers of understanding and closeness. It's also really interesting to consider how relationships work in the Dome and around fighting kaiju, so it would be great to see how they have to maneuver in ways they wouldn't outside the Dome or before the kaiju came. I'm also really into the idea of Mako being the dominant one in the relationship/bed and Raleigh being the most submissive one.

Prompts: Raleigh and Chuck have some bad history and Mako helps them mend the rift. Mako and Raleigh invite Chuck to join them, but he thinks they just mean for a night. The three try to hide their relationship from Stacker and Herc.

Thank you for writing for me, anonymous writer, and I hope you have fun with it! I look forward to seeing what you write :)
