Dear Fandom Growth Exchange Writer

Dear Fandom Growth Exchange writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! If you'd like to stalk me during Fandom Growth Exchange or want to ask me a question/for clarification, I mainly hang around tumblr besides here. 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 except iCarly, 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.

The Amazing Spider-Man - any
Harry is my favorite Spider-Man character, though I'm quite attached to Flash as well. Harry and Peter's relationship is something I really love and I'd love to see more about them as kids and growing into a relationship or just trying to work out their relationship because they both bring a whole host of issues to a relationship. I love Peter and Flash's relationship, how antagonistic it is but at the same time how they understand each other. The two of them trying to figure out how to make a romantic relationship work, especially with the past bullying, would be fantastic. I've not seen much between Harry and Flash (I don't think they meet in canon?), but I think that would be a really interesting dynamic to explore, especially with Peter in the mix. They both have some pretty major issues and their friendship/rivalry with Peter is sure to make things even more interesting. Please no villifying or fridging Gwen for any of the m/m(/m) ships because I really love her. For any of the trios, it would be really interesting to see how they got together and if there were any pairs beforehand, like Gwen and Peter as an established couple or Peter and Harry having a thing in the past.

Prompts: Harry Potter AU where one of them is a muggle and they only get to see each other on breaks or the others start a relationship while at Hogwarts and have to work things out between their two worlds. Going to college together or one going to college while the other(s) moves with them. Peter and Flash run into each other again years after high school.

Batman Beyond - Delia Dennis & Deidre Dennis
This is really my favorite Batman series and I thought the Jokerz were especially fun. Delia and Deidre were super adorable and super interesting, especially once I saw for sure that Harley was their grandmother. I'd love something about them growing up and their family (Who is their grandfather? Who are their parents?) or how they got into the Jokerz, whether or not Harley encouraged them to, etc. Something with them already in the Jokerz would be great as well, especially if you went into what they do when they're not commiting crimes. Do all the Jokers hang out together? Do Delia and Deidre go to school? I'd be happy with pretty much anything about them since we see so little of them!

Prompts: The day they joined the Jokerz. Training together in hopes of actually beating Batman somday. They decide to leave the Jokerz and start their own crew.

Derkholm series - any
I recently reread one of these series, one of my favorites from when I was younger. Blade is my favorite character, but I'm super interested in all of the relationships between the characters. We don't get to see anyone very deeply, even Blade or Elda, who I would consider the most main characters. I'd love something that looks more deeply into the characters and their relationships, their motivations and feelings and that sort of thing. I feel like there was a lot that was glossed over or not even mentioned, like what Deucalion taught Blade and Kit or how all the siblings got along normally or as children. For the ships, I'm good with anything before, during, and after canon, but I'm especially interested in something pretty soon after Darklord of Derkholm for the Blade ships and Reville/Sukey or pre-Darklord of Derkholm for Derk/Mara. My personal headcanon for Blade is that he's ace, so that would be really interesting to explore, but don't feel that you have to include that if you don't want to. Basically I just want MORE of everything from this fandom :)

Prompts: Derk and Mara meeting at the university and how they got together. Reville and Sukey run into Blade a few years later and invite him into their relationship. A typical day of lessons with Deucalion.

Fantastic Four (2005/2007) - Ben Grimm/Johnny Storm, Ben Grimm/Alicia Masters/Johnny Storm
My favorite part of these 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'm sure they've known each other quite awhile through Reid and Sue, so something pre-canon would be interesting as well. I see Alicia as a really balancing force for the two of them and that adds a really interesting dynamic imo. Ben and Alicia inviting Johnny into their relationship is something I never get tired of, though it would be really fascinating to see something where Ben and Johnny were already in some sort of relationship when Ben met Alicia. 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. Johnny has pined over Ben for so long he doesn't get it at first when Ben and Alicia try to get him into bed with them. Sue finds out about her brother's romantic partner(s).

Hannibal - Will Graham & Beverly Katz, Abigail Hobbs & Hannibal Lecter
This show kind of ate my soul. I love the aesthetic of it and the characters and how gorey it is without being too over the top. Beverly is probably my favorite and I'm so sad she's gone. I really love her friendship with Will and how good she is at her job. I'd love to see more of her and Will interacting outside of crime scenes and the lab because he really needs a friend, especially one that's not a psychiatrist. Abigail is really fascinating to me because I've never really been sure how complicit in or aware of all the crimes around her she's been. The flashback in s3 just made me want to know more about what she was thinking and feeling and about her relationship with Hannibal, if she really sees him as a pseudo-dad or if she's playing a role. I'd love to see fic set during that time, but anything before that or an AU would be great as well. AUs where Beverly and/or Abigail don't die are especially appreciated!

Prompts: Beverly and Will just hanging out away from all the blood and murder of their every day. Abigail survives and goes to find Hannibal in Europe on her own. AU where Abigail is really Hannibal's daughter.

iCarly - Freddie Benson/Spencer Shay
I've only seen sporadic episodes of this show, but I'm really in love with this ship. Age difference is one of my favorite things, and I think Carly being Spencer's sister and one of Freddie's best friends creates a really interesting extra dynamic. I love Freddie's nerdiness and how frankly strange Spencer is. They would make a very odd couple, but a really exciting one as well lol I'm fine with them starting a relationship while Freddie is still young or with them getting together later. There are sure to be issues with their relationship- legal/moral if Freddie is still underage, with how Carly or Sam feel about it, with Freddie's mother- so feel free to explore those if you like, but that's not necessary if you'd rather something with less conflict.

Prompts: Freddie tells Carly and Sam he has a crush, but won't say who; they figure out it's Spencer. Freddie asks Spencer to pretend to be his boyfriend for some reason. Carly decides to set Freddie and Spencer up on a date.

The Inheritance Cycle - any
I love this series so much and I'm constantly saddened and surprised by how small the fandom is. There is so much to explore and so many interesting characters! Roran is my favorite character, but I find Nasuada and Garzhvog really fascinating as well. They're all quite strong personalities and have really interesting relationships with the other characters. I absolutely fell in love with Murtagh/Nasuada in the last book and was so sad they never really got a chance together. I'd love to see something where Murtagh comes back or where he doesn't leave at all and they can get their happily every after (though I'm sure there would be plenty of issues to work through). Nasuada's relationship with Farica is something that didn't get a lot of attention, so I'd love to see more exploration of that. It's basically a blank slate, so go wild! Same with Garzhvog/Eragon. There's a lot of potential there for interesting race/culture differences and how to work out a relationship between them. And of course there's Roran/Katrina, which is canon but which we don't get to see a lot of outside of brief mentions. I'd love to see something about them rebuilding and building their new family, or even how they got together in the first place. Roran's familial relationship with Roran is very interesting to me, especially how they were together growing up.

Prompts: Murtagh returns a few years later to see that Nasuada is being pressured to marry and produce an heir; he volunteers to help out. Eragon and Garzhvog have very different ideas of how a romantic/sexual relationship should work out. Farica was Nasuada's first.

Justice League & Justice League Unlimited - Helena Bertinelli/Vic Sage, Clark Kent/Vandal Savage
Helena is one of my favorite DC characters and I absolutely loved her and Vic in JLU. 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 Clark/Vandal, I really loved that episode where they were the only ones left on the planet. I'm just so fascinated by the antagonism, especially with how it works out with them being forced to work with each other and having no one to rely on but each other. I'd love something set during the episode or something after where one or both of them can't get over their feelings for the other, no matter how much they know they should. But if you wanna do something before then or AU, then feel free.

Prompts: Helena and Vic start heroing together on the side, leading to friction with the League. Cop AU where Helena, Vic, and/or Clark are detectives. Clark tries to figure out how his feelings for Vandal have changed and how he can balance that with his responsibilities to the League.

Magic Mike XXL - any
I haven't actually seen the first movie, but I really really loved this one. It was so diverse and positive and just really surprisingly good all around. My favorite scene was the one where the boys were so excited for Richie finding his "glass slipper" because even though they were talking about his dick, it was just super adorable. I would love to see more of Richie and Nancy, especially something taking place post-canon where they continue their relationship. It would be interesting to see what Richie does with his life after the convention, whether he continues his job or finds a new one or becomes Nancy's kept man. Seeing more about Nancy's soon to be ex-husband would be great too, with her talking to Richie about it or issues cropping up that interfere with their relationship.

Prompts: Richie stops by to return Nancy's ex's car and somehow ends up staying. Richie and Nancy start a long distance relationship while she goes through her divorce and he tries to figure out his life. Megan confronts Richie about his intentions toward her mom.

seaQuest - Tony Piccolo/Lucas Wolenczak, Nathan Bridger & Lucas Wolenczak, Dagwood & Tony Piccolo, Dagwood & Lucas Wolenczak
I just recently watched this show 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, how they get close despite a rocky start. I really like the idea of Lucas as pining after an oblivious Tony and everyone on the boat knowing about it, probably even Darwin. Dagwood is a really sweet character and I love how Lucas and Tony are both so good with him and treat him like a person even when some other people don't. I have to say, I'm also just tickled by Dagwood and Tony interacting since they're brothers irl. I really enjoy Lucas and Captain Bidger's father/son relationship bc Lucas obviously needs a mentor and good father figure and Bridger is very good at that. An AU where they actually are father and son or where Bridger adopts Lucas would be fantastic. For any of them, 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 out. Tony, Lucas, and/or Dagwood are stranded somewhere and have to wait for rescue. Harry Potter AU where Captain Bridger is the headmaster and Lucas, Tony, and/or Dagwood are students.

Secret Avengers - Maria Hill/MODOK
I really don't know how, but I got way too invested in this ship lol MODOK's crush on Maria was just so cute in a bizarre kind of way. I love the way he pined over Maria and how the dynamics of their relationship (and the whole team) shifted, especially near the end of the run. I'd love something about how MODOK's feelings change his priorities or Maria trying to work out her own feelings alongside all her other responsibilities or them getting together and having to figure things out together. I know this ship is pretty cracky (even though it's basically canon??), so crack fic is fine, but I'd love something more serious as well. Idk how a physical relationship would work out between them with him basically being a giant head, but feel free to try to figure that out if you're so inspired lol A one-sided relationship is fine, though I'm all in favor of it being reciprocated :)

Prompts: The first time MODOK realized he was in love with Maria. Maria informing someone (the team, her family, a friend, whatever) about her new relationship. MODOK trying to get help in wooing Maria.

Ultimate Spider-Man - any
Harry is my favorite Spider-Man character, though I'm quite attached to Flash as well. Harry and Peter's relationship is something I really love and I'd love to see more about them as kids and growing into a relationship or just trying to work out their relationship because they both bring a whole host of issues to a relationship. I love Peter and Flash's relationship, how antagonistic it is but at the same time how they understand each other. The two of them trying to figure out how to make a romantic relationship work, especially with the past bullying, would be fantastic. Please no villifying or fridging Gwen or Mary Jane.

Prompts: Harry Potter AU where one of them is a muggle and they only get to see each other on breaks. Going to college together or one going to college while the other moves with them. Peter and Flash run into each other again years after high school.
