Dear Young Justice Fest Writer

Dear yjfest writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me!

If you'd like to stalk me during the exchange, 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. And always feel free to ask if you have questions or want me to expand on anything!

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! I'm good with any rating you'd like to write.

Likes and Dislikes
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! If it's something not listed under dislikes, then feel free to give it a try if you like, even if it's not one of my specific likes. Which I kind of go on about, sorry not sorry...


fluff, AUs (coffee shop, college, high school, supernatural creatures, thieves/con artists, whatever ya got I'll probably love it), pining, fake/pretend relationships, antagonistic relationships that turn into love, kid fic, characters suddenly realizing they've been in love all along, domesticity/family, communication by snark, codependent friendships, get togethers, soulmates, adoptive parent-child relationships, queer/trans/genderqueer/etc. characters, magic, steampunk, road trips, tattoos/piercings, ghosts and monsters, arranged marriage

intelligence kink, language kink, competency kink, breeding/impregnation kink, BDSM (especially aftercare), rimming, tentacles, double penetration, sloppy seconds, dubcon/noncon, dirty talk, xeno, chub love, wing kink, D/S, bestiality (sentient/partly human or not), gangbang, daddy kink, non-human genitalia, oviposition, praise kink, mpreg (ok with incest), watersports, messy sex, anal, creampie, doggy style, rough sex, incest, size difference, first time, age difference, prostitution, sex toys, telepathic sex, sexual slavery, made them do it


major character death, 1st and 2nd person POV, cancer fic, abuse in main pairings, infidelity, animal death/torture, zombies, suicide, crossovers (i.e. meeting the characters) except for other DCU

scat, vomit, vore, amputation kink

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 any of them! The prompts are only there for inspiration, don't feel like you have to do one of them if you have something else in mind. I've requested fanfiction, but art or vid would be awesome for treats as well. Feel free to still multiple requests in one fic or add in other characters into the background/side pairings as you like :)


Anything before, during, or after canon is A ok with me! Stuff in the 5 year gap especially, since all we got was hints of what happened. My preference is fix-it for Wally's death if necessary, or ignoring or minimizing it otherwise. It just makes me sad lol I'm also perfectly cool with fic that just explores the YJ world or team interactions, if you'd rather not focus on any of the characters or ships.


  • The remnants of the Young Justice team start up a resistance movement after Earth is overtaken.

  • AU of s2 where the superheroes don't win.

  • The training exercise the team went through actually happens.

  • Making new recruits read all the old case files, take the tour, etc.

  • Team movie night.


Cameron Mahkent | Icicle Jr.

Cameron is a really sad character imo. He tries so hard to get his father to pay attention to him and then he just kind of fucks up everything. I'd love to see more of his thoughts and feelings about why he tries so hard when it's obvious his dad's never going to care. AU fic where he becomes a superhero at some point would be fab. I think it would be a really great way to explore the differences between what he really wants/who he really is and what his dad wants for him to do/be. Plus getting him on the team or even just a not-a-villain ally would just be really interesting. I also get the ideas he's basically a social outcast in general, like no friends or even allies. Basically this boy just needs some positive attention lol


  • Home life with the Icicle fam.

  • The first time Cameron realizes he's never going to be good enough for his father.

  • Cameron decides to try his hand at being a hero.

Conner Kent | Superboy

Most of the tine Conner's defining feature is that he's so angry, which I really enjoy, but I also really love how smart he is. It's really a quiet kind of smart and it always seems to surprise the people around him, and I'd love to see more of that. Nerdy Conner always reading or studying or whatever would be awesome. He's also kind of just like a large, awkward puppy, which is really adorable. More of him being accidentally, awkwardly cute! I'd really like to see more of his thoughts and feelings bc he has a lot of shit to deal with, from being a clone to Clark being a deadbeat dad to figuring out his identity to not aging.


  • Conner graduating valedictorian from high school.

  • Bonding time with Sphere.

  • The first time he met the Kents.

Greta Hayes

My favorite YJ episode is possibly Secrets. I really love Greta helping Artemis and Zatanna against her brother, I guess helping them help her to find closure. Her story was so sad, and I'd love something that not necessarily is a fix it, but I guess expands on it in a positive way. I'd especially be excited about something where she sticks around afterward, joins the team or gets to do some of the stuff she never got to do before or something. Something from her POV during the episode would also be really cool.


  • Greta sticks around as a ghost and joins the team.

  • The moment Greta realized she'd come back as a ghost.

Jim Harper | Guardian

I was a little disappointed we didn't get more of Jim, or more explanation about him. Replacing Roy with a clone makes since bc there was someone to replace, but as far as we know, Jim just... appeared. I'd love to see something about the early days or about how he was discovered to be a clone as well. I imagine he had a lot to deal with, and he did step down as Guardian after that, so something more introspective would be great. I'd also be interested in what he does after we see him at Roy's intervention bc iirc, that's the last time we see him.


  • How Jim found out he was a clone.

  • Jim deciding to step down as Guardian.

Kaldur'ahm | Aqualad

Kaldur is really one of the sweetest members of the team imo. He's just so caring, but also strong and intense in everything, and I really love that about him. He really needs more love lol I'd really like to see more about him deciding that being a hero on the surface is really wants to do. Even after deciding that, he sometimes seems like he's so apart from the rest of the team, which makes me sad, so all the team bonding focusing on Kaldur would be great. Also, anything set in the time skip, like where he learns who his father is agrees to go deep undercover, would be awesome. And if you'd like to leave all the Tula angst out of that, I certainly wouldn't mind.


  • The beginning of Kaldur being Aquaman's sidekick.

  • Kaldur finds out who his father really is.

  • Kaldur decides to study sorcery on his own so he doesn't feel so behind his friends in Atlantis.

Roy Harper | Arsenal, Roy Harper | Red Arrow

Roy is my absolute favorite YJ character. Clone!Roy is my favorite fave and I love him him kind of a ridiculous amount, but honestly I love them both. Every permutation of Roy is so adorable and broke and angry, and I always want to see more of him. Clone!Roy's battle with addiction is something I'd really like to see more of since it obviously had a huge impact on him, even aside from what led him there in the first place. The line "My body's no temple, I'm a cheap knockoff" just about killed me and I'd absolutely love a fic based around that, like Roy's relationship to his body and feeling like he's maybe not a real person because he's a clone. And if you wanna take that a step further and have trans girl Roy, well, I certainly wouldn't mind! On a suppose similar note, I'd really like something about original!Roy's feelings about himself and his body when he wakes up without an arm and then gets a super high tech prosthetic one. Also anything about him trying to deal with the world and the ppl he knew being so totally different after eight years would be awesome.

  • Clone!Roy takes Lian on a road trip as a way to bond with her and prove to himself he can be a good dad.

  • AU where clone!Roy becomes a prostitute to fund his search for original!Roy.

  • Original!Roy learning to use his new arm.

Slade Wilson | Deathstroke

I don't even know why I liked Slade that much in YJ? But I really enjoyed all of his scenes a lot, plus he's surprisingly hot lol I'd especially love to see how he came to work for the Light or how he feels about his assignment with Black Manta. If you want to write ship fic for Slade, I'd be cool with Slade/Black Manta, or you're welcome to do whoever else you ship him with.


  • Slade being assigned to work with Black Manta.

  • Slade and Artemis (as Tigress) being bros.

Vandal Savage

I've liked Vandal since JLU, and although we don't get a whole lot of just him in YJ, he's still great. I love the idea of his immortality and how that makes his goals and such different than a lot of the other characters. I was really intrigued by his line "as a father myself" in one of the eps. It would be great to see him as a father, be it during canon or sometime before. Would he be a good one? Would he want his kid(s) to be a supervillain too? Also if you're interested in writing ship fic, I had to cut Clark/Vandal from my requests so feel free to work that in!


  • Vandal balancing being a dad and a supervillain.

  • How he got involved with the Light.

Zatanna Zatara | Zatanna

I really liked Zatanna and her confidence and coolness, and I really felt for her dealing with basically losing her dad and being all alone. I'd love to see more of her dealing with that and letting the team comfort her and help her figure out how to keep living her life without him. It would be cool to see something about her training and learning spells, either alone or with one of the other magic users. Also just her friendship with any of the other ladies, especially Artemis, bc I loved that.


  • Zatanna's fist night at Mount Justice.

  • Zatanna sneaking out at night to go dancing.


Barbara Gordon | Batgirl & Bruce Wayne | Batman & Dick Grayson | Any & Tim Drake | Robin

I've been really into Batfam lately and I'd love to see more of them interacting in YJ. I especially wish we'd gotten to see more of Tim and Barbara, and any of their relationships with Bruce. I'd love to see them training or doing their day to day in Gotham or like... just doing some sort of bonding stuff. I feel like Bruce became more aware of trying to be a good father figure after seeing Clark failing with Conner, so him trying to figure out the best way to deal with all of these kids would be really cool. Out of all of them I think Tim is my favorite, but honestly they're all great, so feel free to focus on any of them in any combination.


  • Batfam going out to dinner but being interrupted by a supervillain.

  • Batkids going undercover at a gala event as their secret identities.

  • Bruce doing bonding activities with each of the kids.

  • Batkids play pranks on Bruce.

Bart Allen | Impulse/Nathaniel Tryon | Neutron

I thought the little bits of interaction we got between Bart and Nathaniel were really fascinating. It was obvious they'd known each other for awhile before Bart went back in time, but it wasn't so obvious (at least to me) how they knew each other. I'd love to see something about them before Bart left, like how they met or got close. I imagine knowing that in that past Nathaniel killed Barry would be difficult on a relationship, so how do they get past that? It would also be really interesting to see them not getting together until Bart is in the past bc Bart would know Nathaniel, but Nathaniel wouldn't know him.


  • Nathaniel can't figure out why Bart is so interested in him, until someone lets slip that they knew each other in the future.

  • Bart and Nathaniel fucking in the time machine before Bart leaves.

  • The first time Bart and Nathaniel met.

Billy Batson | Captain Marvel & Dudley H. Dudley

Billy is so precious and I'd really love to see more of his relationship with Uncle Dudley. Uncle Dudley obviously knows he's Captain Marvel, but how did he find out? How long has Billy been Captain Marvel anyway? It would be great to see something about how the two of them interact, with Uncle Dudley knowing Billy is so young but going out as a grown superhero. Domestic stuff would be great, like what they do and how they interact when Billy's not out being a hero, or maybe something where Billy somehow gets really hurt on the job.


  • Uncle Dudley finding out about Billy being Captain Marvel.

  • Harry Potter AU where Uncle Dudley is Dudley Dursley.

  • A night at home after a hard day superheroing.

Bruce Wayne | Batman/Roy Harper | Red Arrow

I honestly never thought about this ship until my latest watch through. And I can pinpoint exactly what started it: in 1x25 when Roy slipped the chip into Bruce's neck, he came up and put his hand on Bruce's shoulder and said, "You going to join the party?" which just sounded really... intimate to me? I can so see them having had a relationship before that, probably secret, but also probably really sweet. I feel like they'd both be really good for each other, kind of balance out each others ecentricities. Basically I just want gentle touches and Bruce understanding Roy's issues. Although something more rough wouldn't go amiss if you want to go that direction.


  • Bruce bringing Roy as his date to a gala.

  • Bruce and Roy come out as a couple to the Justice League.

  • Relaxing together after a hard day.

Cameron Mahkent | Icicle Jr./Conner Kent | Superboy

Their little broship in the prison was really cute, and I can so see it developing into romance. I really see Cameron as being torn after finding out who Conner is bc his dad would so not like him crushing on a superhero, much less dating one. I think him having a romantic interest that's a superhero could change a lot for him in a positive way, and maybe even help Conner with his issues. Broken boys fixing each other ftw!


  • Meeting the parent(s).

  • Cameron meets his boyfriend's friends for the first time off the battlefield.

Conner Kent | Superboy/Kaldur'ahm | Aqualad

I super shipped these the first few episodes, then the show seemed to kind of put their relationship on the back burner. I feel like both Kaldur and Connor feel like outsiders on the team to me sometimes, so I'd love to see something where they bond over that. Or Kaldur helping Connor through his angst and such. I'm kind of fascinated by the idea of Kaldur, being an Atlantian, or Conner, being a Kryptonian, having weird genitalia, so feel free to experiment with that if you like.


  • AU where Conner and Kaldur end up in an arranged marriage to cement an allyship between Krypton and Atlantis.

  • Kaldur takes Conner to visit Atlantis.

Lex Luthor/Roy Harper | Red Arrow

Lbr, this relationship would be so fucked up, but I love that. I really enjoyed their sort of face off in 1x10 and how Lex just seemed really amused by Roy. Honestly, I think he finds him kind of adorable. I'd love to see something about their relationship developing from there and Roy's conflicted feelings about it. He's not exactly one to make good life choices, but he doesn't seem able to stay away from the ppl he really wants. And I think Lex would probably be quite willing to go after him if necessary to get what they both want.


  • Lex as Roy's sugar daddy.

  • The team finds out Roy's dating Lex.

  • Lex gets outed by the press with revealing pictures of him and Roy.

Perdita & Wally West | Kid Flash

I've been wanting future fic of the two of them ever since I saw the episode where Wally helps save her life. I'd really like to see them becoming friends, maybe emailing or writing letters or something. Wally having a friend outside of the other young heroes would probably be really good for him, and idk about Perdita, but she probably doesn't have a lot of friends either.


  • Wally's surprised by the first letter, but it doesn't take long before he and Perdita are regular penpals.

  • Wally visits Perdita in Vlatava.

Roy Harper | Arsenal & Roy Harper | Red Arrow & Jim Harper | Guardian

I'm so sad we never got to see all three of them interact. We got a couple little bits of clone!Roy and original!Roy and clone!Roy and Jim, but never the three of them. I think that's really a shame bc them together would be really interesting. I mean two of them are clones of the other, but they've all had very different lives and have very different personalities. It would be really cool to see how they all feel about the others and how they're so different. I wonder if Jim has a temper like the Roys and what he did after retiring as Guardian. I wonder how original!Roy feels about being physically younger than the other two, by quite a bit. I wonder how the other two feel about clone!Roy having a child, and if Jim ever met her. I wonder if Jim is also an archer or if maybe the other two teach him. There's just so much I want to see about them!


  • Clone!Roy brings Lian to meet her "uncles."

  • Clone!Roy and Jim take original!Roy out drinking/clubbing.

  • Roy, Roy, and Jim fighting together.

Roy Harper | Red Arrow/Wally West | Kid Flash

This has been my OTP for the fandom basically since I first watched YJ. They have such a fun dynamic and it's really obvious that they care about each other a lot. I just love seeing Roy with someone who tempers him a little and helps break through his angry, listens-to-no-one exterior. They could be really good for each other, though they definitely have the potential to make a big mess together. Either way could be a lot of fun. Wally's "death" in s2 killed me, so a fix-it if he's included would be wonderful. Also, since I had to cut it from my requests, if you're interested in adding in the other Roy, I certainly wouldn't mind that!


  • Wally tells his parents he's dating Roy, then has to get Roy to agree to be his fake boyfriend.

  • 5 times someone thought they were brothers and 1 time someone realized they were dating.

  • Roy has a crush on the barista at the coffee shop near his apartment and doesn't realize it's one of the other sidekicks.

  • Roy and Wally were together before they found out that Roy was a clone, which causes all sorts of problems.
