Dear Rare Pair Fest Writer

Dear Rare Pair Fest writer,

Thank you so much for writing or doing art for me!

If you'd like to stalk me during Rare Pair Fest 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 I'm caught up on everything, so no need to worry about spoilers.

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, adoptive parent-child relationships, queer/trans/genderqueer/etc. characters

major character death, 1st and 2nd 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 ship! For any of these, feel free to add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like.

Daredevil - Francis/James Wesley, Wilson Fisk/James Wesley, Vanessa Marianna Fisk/Wilson Fisk/James Wesley
I really didn't think I'd get as into this show as I did, and especially how invested I'd be in Wesley. I absolutely loved him and especially his relationship with Fisk. The two of them were immediately my primary ship for the show because their dynamic is just so fascinating. I'd love to see something about how the two of them met and why Wesley is so loyal to Fisk. I also absolutely loved Vanessa and how beautiful and confident she was. She was basically the perfect mob wife right from the start and I think that's just so fascinating, so it would be great to see how the three of them work out. I've recently seen stuff about Francis/Wesley, and I think that's really interesting as well. We don't see much of Francis or his interactions with Wesley, so there's a whole lot of untapped potential there! If you go with Fisk/Wesley, please no villifying or fridging Vanessa because I adore her. For this one, I'm ok with including Wesley's canonical death and Francis, Vanessa, and/or Fisk mourning him, but I'd also love some sort of fix it or AU.

Prompts: Fisk and Wesley met as teenagers in a group home. Harry Potter AU where Fisk is trying to take over the Ministry. Fisk manages to take over Hell's Kitchen and things change drastically.

Harry Potter - Dudley Dursley/Harry Potter, Fenrir Greyback/Harry Potter, Lavender Brown/Pansy Parkinson, Neville Longbottom/Draco Malfoy, Ginny Weasley/Blaise Zabini, Lavender Brown/Blaise Zabini
This fandom will probably always be one of my favorites and I just really love the characters and the world. Dudley/Harry and Fenrir/Harry are two of my top HP ships. I love how much they'd have to work to get to a point of romance and/or sex because of their histories or sides on the war. Anything before, during, or after canon would be great, as well as AUs (I'm especially fond of dark!Harry). Neville/Draco is another favorite because of their dynamic, but I especially love fics where Neville becomes the more dominant one in their relationship. I've actually not read much if any Lavender/Pansy, Ginny/Blaise, or Lavender/Blaise, but I really do love cross-house relationships and I think these ships could be really interesting. Pansy and Lavender especially have been really fascinating to me lately because we don't see much about them and they're kind of looked down on in both the books and the fandom. I'd love to see something about any of the characters outside of the main characters or plot. I'd also be interested in fic that explores the world more, like the differences between the muggle and wizarding worlds, life at Hogwarts, the wizarding world outside of Hogwarts (like what they do once they've graduated), rebuilding the British wizarding world after the war, etc.

Prompts: A day at Hogwarts from Pansy or Lavender's perspective. Ginny struggles after the Chamber of Secrets, but no one notices except Blaise. Dudley and Harry meet up years later and their relationship changes drastically.

iZombie - Clive Babineaux/Ravi Chakrabarti/Liv Moore, Liv Moore/Lowell Tracy, Ravi Chakrabarti/Liv Moore, Ravi Chakrabarti/Major Lilywhite
I'm really pretty over the whole zombie thing, but somehow this show dragged me in anyway. The zombies aren't like regular zombies and it's far more about the crimes and what it means to be human than anything else, which I really like. Ravi is my favorite, he's just such a charming, adorable dork. I love his relationship with Liv and how hard he tries to help her. His friendship with Major is also super cute, and I think they could make a really good couple even if it might get a little awkward with Liv. And of course the Clive/Ravi/Liv dynamic is already amazing and them in a relationship would be even better! Liv/Lowell just broke my heart in the show, so it would be great to see some sort of fix it for them.

Prompts: Ravi takes Major on a date to distract him from zombies, then realizes that there might actually be something more there. Liv sets Ravi up on a date with Clive but it somehow turns into the three of them going out. Lowell manages to kill Blaine and he and Liv have to try to control the city's zombie problem.

Mad Max - The Dag/Cheedo the Fragile, Capable/Nux
Despite my love of explosions, I wasn't expecting to like this move as much as I did. But explosions and kick ass women and anti-capitalism, how could I not end up loving it! Capable was my favorite, though all the wives were amazing. I really loved Capable and Nux's relationship and I'd love to see more of it, especially a fix it where he makes it back with/after them. Dag/Cheedo is something I just saw recently but I think it's really cute. It would be great to see something about them before the movie about how they get together while they're still Joe's wives.

Prompts: College AU where Capable is a women's studies major and Nux ends up taking a class with her to fulfill a requirement. They try to build a better life for themselves and everyone else at the Citadel. Dag and Cheedo rais Dag's child.

seaQuest - Tony Piccolo/Lucas Wolenczak, Dagwood/Lucas Wolenczak, Dagwood/Tony Piccolo, Dagwood/Lucas Wolenczak/Tony Piccolo
I just watched this show with my family and really got into it even though I didn't really think I would. Lucas is my favorite, though Tony is great as well. I love their interactions and also how they treat Dagwood. The whole boat has some really interesting dynamics and I find it interesting how they all work together. I really enjoy Lucas and Captain Bidger's father/son relationship, so it would be great to see some of that too. I have a preference for s1/s2 fic, but s3 or AU stuff is fine too!

Prompts: Lucas goes to Captain Bridger for advice on how to ask Tony (and/or Dagwood) out. Tony and Lucas (and Dagwood) are stranded somewhere and have to wait for rescue. Harry Potter AU where Captain Bridger is the headmaster and Lucas, Tony, and Dagwood are students.

Young Justice - Roy Harper/Wally West, Roy Harper/Kaldur'ahm
Roy is my absolute favorite YJ character, so pretty much anything about him would be amazing. He's just so angsty and broken that I can't help but love him, either as real!Roy or clone!Roy. He and Wally make an adorable couple and I think they just work really well together. Roy and Kaldur's friendship is great and I'd love to see it move to something more (or Kaldur being super supportive of Roy's relationship with Wally). Wally's "death" in s2 killed me, so fix it fic would be fantastic.

Prompts: Roy and Wally were together before they found out that Roy was a clone, which causes all sorts of problems. The team meets Roy again post s2 and romance ensues. Roy and Wally (or Kaldur) raise Lian.
