AU Ex 2019 Letter (Complete)

I apologize for my lateness finishing the prompts on this. Hopefully my general likes were of any use.

I would love anything I’ve requested, regardless of how long I did or didn’t go on and on about it or how many freeforms inspired me for a pairing. Thank you so much for whatever you create!

General Gen Fic Likes

Worldbuilding

I love it when stories incorporate cultural details, details on how the world works like the economy, industry, religion, or social circles and rules, and language details, whether that’s just the acknowledgement of how language is used or actual other language in-fic. I prefer getting dropped into a fully formed world that doesn’t always bother to explain everything, and love it when differing cultures and viewpoints within the world clash. I adore internally consistent pseudo-science and technobabble, origin stories, alternate races, and well-developed power systems for magic, technology.

With superhumans, I love things that explore how abilities work under the hood, how to train them or master them, and love digging into experimentation backstories and the consequences of the rules of how power works.

If there are magical or technological artifacts or objects in canon, I love exploration of those and consequences and extrapolations from whatever canonical details we have, e.g. the Dresden Slate of K or the anacapa drive of the Diving Series. I want to know so much more about either.

Character Study/Development

I love seeing what makes characters tick and exploring how their particular upbringing or culture or biology or power makes them who they are or gives them challenges to overcome. I love watching characters figure out who they are or where they belong, learning who they are when something fundamental about their view of themself changes, or how they hold onto who they are in the face of others who either oppose or support them. I love seeing how their relationships, whether family, friends, or lovers, figure into all of that.

General Shipfic Likes

“Just Met” Get Together

I love relationship fics where characters have real differences in personalities, temperaments, cultures, even morals and values that they have to work through in order to have a relationship, where what keeps them apart aren’t silly misunderstandings but having to get to know each other and overcome trust issues or their own personal emotional difficulties. I would love to see sex in these stories but preferably after it’s been earned. If you just get them to the kissing stage, that’s fine too and I love a good kissing scene!

“Know Each Other Well” Get Together Shipfic

I love pining! I love characters being in the situation where nakedness or vulnerability could come up and the pining character feels awkward or horrified but turned on because the other party doesn’t know their true feelings. I love when they don’t want to ruin their relationship or truly believe it’s unrequited and it’s not just stupidity that they don’t say something. I love it when both are in the same boat and it’s mutual or when it’s truly one-sided, so long as the friendship or partnership survives them deciding whether or not they love the other one back, regardless of which they choose. I love platonically married partners or estranged friends that could have been more and now get another shot at reconciling their differences and becoming something more. I love it messy and angsty and complicated and knowing each other enough to hurt each other, and I love it leavened with some gentle humor if I can get it and a happy ending.

Established Relationships

I absolutely love established relationships where you can feel the history between them—in little things they know about each other or do around each other without even thinking about it, in inside references and little details showing up throughout that imply stories we aren’t being told right now. I love it when there’s palpable tension between two people that are on the outs for any reason, where they gloss over big discussions or use a simple line or detail to stand in for a whole story or chunk of history. I prefer not to have “as you know Bob” coredumps on history, though I don’t mind exposition here and there. I love tension and these longstanding pet peeves to also show up, where just because they’ve been together a long time or known each other forever, doesn’t mean they always get along without having to work at it.

Abigail Armstrong/Wes Cooper (Dance Academy)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

I’ve watched all three seasons of Dance Academy and have not watched the movie yet and am hoping desperately they don’t break up, though I’m fairly certain Wes is entirely ignored in it. Feel free to spoil me in fic if you want to use movie canon as well (I actually like spoilers).

What I Love About the Ship

So first off, I hated Abigail in season 1. In season 3, she was my favorite thing about Dance Academy. And I loved Wes and all the hints of the start of their relationship in Barcelona and that he made her happy and Ethan wouldn’t even speak of it afterward and that Wes knew her well enough to send her bubble wrap. That is seriously beautiful.

The way they both pushed and pulled and ignored and teased was delightful. I love them soooo much from pretty much the moment he showed up. And he wants her to be happy because she deserves to be happy, despite everything and he did the thing on the bridge that she came up with top of her head to get rid of him and just, I love them okay?

I love all her prickly bits and practicality and respecting Tara suddenly for surviving school despite the distraction of trying to interpret boyfriend’s behavior and I love his stubbornness and gentleness and the way he listens to her and their long distance relationship thing was absolutely priceless, tech issues and all.

About Other Relationships

Am fine with any canonical relationships in the background or acknowledging her previous relationship with Sammy. Otherwise, I’d rather just focus on Abigail/Wes.

About Smut

May I suggest first times and exploring each other, getting over hangups sex, comfort sex, morning sex, or we’re dancing/choreographing in name only then having sex, and also regarding those delightful long distance relationship moments in season 3, phone/webcam sex.

Ship-Specific DNWs

Unhappy ending or breaking up the ship.

Soulmate AU; Soulmates share a talent; soulbonding makes it better

Okay, so basically my favorite thing about both of them is their competence and drive and they’re both talented in the realm of dance, so I love the idea of them doing soulbonding in pursuit of a common goal. Also, I just absolutely love soulmates and would adore to see interesting takes on this that incorporate well with canon. If doing soulmarks, no names please. I like it when it feels biologically feasible and doesn’t require a particular kind of society or foreknowledge to work.

Fuck/Marry/Kill Is Sometimes Legally Binding

Because they are exactly the kind of people to do this kind of game and get stuck with the results on a dare or due to unexpected laws of the universe. Though tbh, I’m more interested in them having to marry or have sex and please make only one part of this equation binding.

Bungou Stray Dogs

Nakahara Chuuya, Ozaki Kouyou, Nakahara Chuuya & Ozaki Kouyou, Izumi Kyouka & Ozaki Kouyou, Akutagawa Gin & Akutagawa Ryuunosuke, Lucy Maud Montgomery/Nakajima Atsushi, Worldbuilding

Canon I’ve Consumed

So I’ve seen the anime, Dead Apple, and read the summaries of Fifteen and Beast, parts of the main manga with a bit of osmosis of more of the manga. Feel free to incorporate any canon, though if you get into manga-only arcs, please include a hint of explanation where necessary. (I love spoilers, go for it.) I’ve also seen the new episodes for season 3 and am in love.

What I Love About These Characters and Relationships

I love Chuuya. He’s basically this living weapon/inhuman backstory of someone learning to human and who prefers to figure out how to be human while feeling anything but. I love his loyalty, his temper, his sheer competence (he’s never lost a fight! except against Dazai or Ranpo), and his relationships with those he cares about. I love both his overpowered ability (I have a thing for overpowered characters whose power is a duel-edged sword, both asset and liability) and his skills as top martial artist and executive.

I love Kouyou for many of the same reasons. She’s a competent BAMF with so much love and loyalty for those she cares about and she really, really loves both Kyouka and Chuuya. I see her as a sister figure to them rather than a motherly one. She’s younger than you’d think. I love her competence, her composure, her ruthlessness, and her tenderness re: Kyouka. I’d love to see her get happiness.

Gin and Akutagawa looked so genuinely happy to see each other and content when they were heading home, and I love them being family, and kinda love no one really knowing about that besides Dazai, though Chuuya would probably have had cause to know as well. I also love their absolute ruthless, lash-out tempers, and competence when they’re working.

Lucy and Atsushi were good to me every second of screentime they shared together from the moment they met to the wonderful content in season 3 with her throwing stuff at him, their heart to hearts and understanding, he looked for her, her telling him to give Kyouka space, everything. I love them.

About Other Relationships

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my requested ships in the fandom, any canonical relationships or parents, etc. If not doing Lucy/Atsushi, I’m also good with Kyouka/Atsushi or Akutagawa/Atsushi. I’m also good with Ranpo/Poe, Fukuzawa/Dazai, or Dazai/Ranpo as background relationships.

About Smut

None for this request please.

Fandom-Specific DNWs

non-Japanese Chuuya, calling Dazai just “Osamu” (appropriate use of full name fine)

Gods AU

This is my bulletproof trope. I love characters as gods and digging into the worldbuilding and how characters fit into their roles and using any existing god material in canon, e.g. Chuuya is canonically the vessel for a god. Whatever you want to do with this, I am game.

Fantasy AUs: Accidental Shapeshifter Marriage Due to Unknowing Theft of Animal Skin; Changeling Who Stays with Adoptive Family/Standoffish Fellow Mage Student; Male Fire God/New King Who Marries Him In What He Assumed To Be A Symbolic Ceremony

I love the idea of a changeling that stays with their human family instead of returning to the fae and how that makes them a fish out of water and there are grumpy/standoffish characters in canon galore who would hold power and also perhaps not fit in well. Throwing them together with any of my preferred or okay other pairings would make me happy.

I equally love the idea of a marriage of convenience between a fire god and a new king that at least one party didn’t realize was real. Fine with going all in with a pairing I like or going with a platonic marriage between other characters. Likewise with accidentally marrying a selkie or other shifter by accidentally stealing their skin. I don’t care what characters you do that too, I just hope it’s funny in the way of crack played straight.

Dazai dragged Chuuya with him when he left the Port Mafia; Chuuya joined the Agency instead of Dazai

I’d love to see the shift of dynamics if Chuuya and Dazai were both in the Agency or if it was just Chuuya. I think Chuuya has a ton to gain by getting employed by Fukuzawa (total control over Corruption), and it would be fascinating to see his unique set of morals and loyalty played out in such a different environment, even if the Agency existed early enough for Fukuzawa to snatch him up with his desire to belong and protect before Mori got there. (I’m very fond of Chuuya in Fifteen.) Alternatively, his continuing relationship with Kouyou after joining the Agency. Or him and Kyouka after she joins.

Fate Holy Grail War AU

Yes, please Port Mafia vs. ADA vs. government vs. Guild vs. Rats in the House of the Dead, etc. played out by summoning heroes. Or them being summoned as heroes. I don’t care how you do it.

Machineries of Empire AU

There are some great choices here for making Abilities or organizations work as divisions of a hexarchate or operate on different calendrical technologies, and having people seconded in with others. Grab setting or story or just the premise, and I’ll be happy camper.

One Specific Demographic has soulmates while others don’t; Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks

I’m thinking Ability-users as the demographic and would love to see any of my favorite pairings stuck with each other as soulmates or arranged marriage partner.

I adore soulmarks (all but names), especially when they were really, really not expecting each other and when the marks are meaningful or feel like they could arise naturally for biological reasons and when it complicates everything and it’s not a bandaid or an easy fix and it’s totally a lot of work to make a relationship work because a mark doesn’t just rewrite all the annoying parts of the other’s personality. In this case, it just gets you married to them whether you think the other person’s insufferable or not.

Superhumans Temp Agency

I’d love to see the more regular professional applications for their abilities. I’ve always loved the idea of a world with superhumans where special abilities weren’t all used for law enforcement, heroism, etc.

Everything is the same except Chuuya is a cat

Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya (Bungou Stray Dogs)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

So I’ve seen the anime, Dead Apple, and read the summaries of Fifteen and Beast, parts of the main manga with a bit of osmosis of more of the manga. Feel free to incorporate any canon, though if you get into manga-only arcs, please include a hint of explanation where necessary. (I love spoilers, go for it.) I’ve also seen the new episodes for season 3 and am in love.

What I Love About the Ship

I got into BSD entirely because I was promised Chuuya, and Chuuya delivered. And from the first moment they landed on screen together, they were just dripping in history and knew each other so well, and had these little intimate physical things they did, like Chuuya dragging Dazai’s head forward by the hair and Dazai just automatically adjusting for the height difference all over the place. Dazai knows how Chuuya fights; Chuuya knows how Dazai thinks (and says he would have killed Dazai long ago if he’d been idiot enough to get himself caught on purpose, like yes please). I think it’s fascinating how throughout the series, despite not fully acting like he realizes it, Chuuya actually does see through all of Dazai’s schemes, just later rather than sooner. Not everyone catches on to exactly how Dazai’s manipulating things and what he’s after, but Chuuya always catches up at some point.

I love that whole scene against the wall with the knife and the blood and yes, kink I didn’t even know I had before that, and the fact that Chuuya didn’t even come down to kill him, just “harass” him. It was Dazai that played chicken with Chuuya’s temper on purpose to get that reaction. They get under each other’s skin and they hate it and they love it and they trust each other as partners and they trust each other as enemies too, in their own way. I can’t even describe how much I love that, just I really, really love that.

And also! The cuteness of the party! Dazai threw him a party! Dazai was like mine! for life! and didn’t get it and immediately got soooo mad! And I love those little Mafia babies. Okay, teens, but yes, that. (And tbh, that moment when Chuuya realizes just what Dazai’s done and looks like he’s for real going to kill Dazai is super hot and I think Dazai would agree.) Though I still wish we’d gotten the first use of Corruption with Dazai.

I love their antagonism, their banter (which I’m not as good at writing, please go all out if that’s your thing!), and conflicted feelings or hiding their caring under the opposite. I’d love to see more of Dark Era Chuuya and Dazai. I’d love to see them pining without even realizing it and trying to take care of each other and learning about each other and developing that crazy unshakable trust that doesn’t quite line up with their antipathy. I’d love to see them flirting with knives and insults and guns and missions and breaking into each other’s apartment and making bets and being teenagers.

About Other Relationships

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my other requested ships in the fandom (if they don’t include Chuuya or Dazai), any canonical relationships or parents, etc.

About Smut

I’m fine with dub-con, teenage experimentation with sex, or sex as adults. I like switching or Chuuya topping. I like that Dazai wins on the manipulation/tactics front, but Chuuya tends to outclass him physically, and I like the idea of that extended to sex.

I like the idea of rough sex with these two. I’d love to see you make use of Chuuya’s choker. (I’m also very attached to his gloves.) And by manhandling and wall sex, I mean Chuuya putting Dazai up against a wall, preferably with a knife. Pretty please. And feel free to add Chuuya dealing with his ability making itself known and Corruption tempting and things rattling around him as Dazai has to keep touching him to keep things sane. Whether their comfort is delivered wrapped in antagonism or not.

Ship-Specific DNWs

non-Japanese Chuuya; calling Dazai just “Osamu” (appropriate use of full name fine); breakup or unhappy ending.

Gods AU

This is my bulletproof trope. I love characters as gods and digging into the worldbuilding and how characters fit into their roles and using any existing god material in canon, e.g. Chuuya is canonically the vessel for a god. I tend to prefer Dazai as a god of death and Chuuya as either the god of calamity or still housing / being avatar for one and being the god of passion or something like that, but really, whatever you want to do with this, I am game.

Accidental Shapeshifter Marriage Due to Unknowing Theft of Animal Skin

I could see either one of them as a shapeshifter and either one accidentally making off with a skin or putting it away under the right circumstances and then lo and behold, they wake up with surprise spouse and a hefty dose of why you? I would love to see elements of humor and/or forced intimacy and differing expectations but few explanations and muddling their way into a proper relationship.

Changeling Who Stays with Adoptive Family/Standoffish Fellow Mage Student

I love the idea of a changeling who stays with his human family and always feels a bit fish out of water and like he doesn’t belong, with fae instincts and human upbringing and magic that’s powerful, even more powerful than usual, but doesn’t fit in. Consider how powerful both Chuuya and Dazai are and how neither feels human, I’m wide open to either fitting either role.

I’d love to see the standoffish fellow mage student as having good reasons of his own for his standoffishness, maybe a negligent family or other reason to feel like he doesn’t belong, and they get thrown together for magic or schoolwork and help each other as they fall in love despite themselves. Maybe fae use wild magic as capricious as they are and human mages use a rules-based magic system.

I’d love to see worldbuilding or magic details or culture clashes (especially concerning domestic or marital affairs and/or wedding traditions), maybe even a hint of how the changeling doesn’t fit in with fae any more than he does humans, and some of the way things work at the school and how they do or don’t fit into that.

Male Fire God/New King Who Marries Him In What He Assumed To Be A Symbolic Ceremony

Chuuya technically can count as a fire god, just saying.

I love arranged marriages and culture clashes and I’d love to see worldbuilding and details for the religion/royalty that leads to both the situation and the misunderstanding. Frankly, I adore that difference of perspectives about the truth behind a magic or technology or religion, and I love the idea of this symbolic ceremony that happens to be true.

I really, really love fire gods and myths and would love to see him claiming this new king and the rituals of the wedding ceremony and why this works when he expects to get an heir some other way (thinking this was symbolic) and how it works for the kingdom and then the wedding night when he finds out this isn’t symbolic at all.

I’d love to see after the wedding night too when the marriage is a real thing, and the king has to get used to being married to a god and maybe getting gifts or visits and reaching some sort of emotional resolution.

Dazai dragged Chuuya with him when he left the Port Mafia; Chuuya joined the Agency instead of Dazai

I’d love to see the shift of dynamics if Chuuya and Dazai were both in the Agency or if it was just Chuuya. I think Chuuya has a ton to gain by getting employed by Fukuzawa (total control over Corruption), and it would be fascinating to see his unique set of morals and loyalty played out in such a different environment, even if the Agency existed early enough for Fukuzawa to snatch him up with his desire to belong and protect before Mori got there. (I’m very fond of Chuuya in Fifteen.) I also love the idea of Dazai kidnapping Chuuya and whisking him away when he defected.

Fate Holy Grail War AU

Whether the Port Mafia, ADA, government, House of Rats, etc. are in a Grail War summoning Servants or my favorite characters are Servants summoned by Fate characters.

Machineries of Empire AU

With Chuuya as a Kel and Dazai as a Shuos, whether seconded in or riding in his head like Jedao and Cheris. And as shippy as possible, even if you go the disembodied route.

One Specific Demographic has soulmates while others don’t; Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks

I’m thinking Ability-users as the demographic and would love to see any of my favorite pairings stuck with each other as soulmates or arranged marriage partner.

I adore soulmarks (all but names), especially when they were really, really not expecting each other and when the marks are meaningful or feel like they could arise naturally for biological reasons and when it complicates everything and it’s not a bandaid or an easy fix and it’s totally a lot of work to make a relationship work because a mark doesn’t just rewrite all the annoying parts of the other’s personality. In this case, it just gets you married to them whether you think the other person’s insufferable or not.

Superhumans Temp Agency

Using abilities for regular life is such a fun idea and I would love to see life go crazy and fun in this AU.

Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya/Oda Sakunosuke (Bungou Stray Dogs)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

So I’ve seen the anime, Dead Apple, and read the summaries of Fifteen and Beast, parts of the main manga with a bit of osmosis of more of the manga. Feel free to incorporate any canon, though if you get into manga-only arcs, please include a hint of explanation where necessary. (I love spoilers, go for it.) I’ve also seen the new episodes for season 3 and am in love. I have not read all of the Dark Era LN, but I’ve loved every bit of Oda’s POV of Dazai and would love to see that included if you’re familiar with it.

What I Love About the Ship

So there is precious little of this extremely rare ship out there, but if this will help to lure you in, have a dark murder-suicide take or a warm fluffy Chuuya kissing Oda to make Dazai jealous and it works take, aka, how I got suckered into this rarest of rare ships.

Okay, so let me start off with arguably the two most important people in Dazai’s life before he joins the ADA. One of them (Chuuya) inspired him to try living, whatever he tries to pass it off as solely coming close to dying. One of them (Oda) inspired him to try being on the side that saves people.

And there’s that official art with that wistful almost pining look on Chuuya’s face when he’s looking back at Oda and Dazai together, and they’re just so close and have such real trust despite the relative shortness of their partnership. They were partners for three years and yet, they had the kind of trust that Chuuya will throw himself out of a plane while activating Corruption, even though Dazai’s supposedly dead. Everything I said above about Double Black applies.

Then there’s Oda and Dazai and the true genuine affection between them, the depths of their friendship. Despite Dazai’s conflicted rejection of Ango, it was Oda that outright considered Dazai his only friend after the betrayal, and the way he cares about Dazai and Dazai’s real and vulnerable with him hits all my buttons. I love that Oda never pushes too hard either, but just carefully allows Dazai to be himself while still being there for him, and Dazai tries so hard to return the favor. I love them so much.

And when all we had was Dark Era and main storyline, I kept wondering why Oda and Chuuya seemed very separate parts of his life and wanted to see them affect each other or interact around this awkward tie that is their connection to Dazai, and I think they’d work well together too. Oda doesn’t judge, and Chuuya’s shameless and fairly judgment free himself, yet sees value in people in a way that Oda does and Dazai has to be told to.

I think they’d work full on Mafia killing sides of their personalities and the softer, caring sides they each have. I love the complicated dance of how their characters interact and show or don’t show their feelings.

About Other Relationships

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my other requested ships in the fandom (if they don’t include anyone in the ship), any canonical relationships or parents, etc.

About Smut

I’m fine with dub-con, teenage experimentation with sex, or sex as adults. I’m fine with teenagers above the age of consent with young adults like Dark Era Oda. I like switching, Chuuya topping, or Oda topping. I like that Dazai wins on the manipulation/tactics front, but Chuuya tends to outclass him physically, and I like the idea of that extended to sex.

I kinda like the idea of more loving, gentle threesomes with these three, seriously into the idea of first times or lazy morning sex, though I’m always up for passionate rough sex and desperate arousal and thank god we’re alive sex as well.

  • foreplay, body worship
  • arousal / desperate arousal
  • biting, nipping
  • weapons play (especially the weapons associated with a particular character) with clean wounds
  • delayed orgasm
  • overstimulation
  • phone sex
  • wall sex
  • pinning people against walls with knives leads to sex
  • very very quiet sex
  • heat sex / mating cycles, first time heat

Fantasy AUs: Accidental Shapeshifter Marriage Due to Unknowing Theft of Animal Skin; Changeling Who Stays with Adoptive Family/Standoffish Fellow Mage Student; Male Fire God/New King Who Marries Him In What He Assumed To Be A Symbolic Ceremony

So Chuuya’s pretty much canonically a male fire god (or at least the vessel) and I’d adore a Dazai/Oda couple where one of them accidentally steals an extra spouse, and any of them can be changeling or mage. I love the dynamics of these pairing tags and if you’re inspired to make them work with a trio, I’m all for it.

Dazai dragged Chuuya with him when he left the Port Mafia; Chuuya joined the Agency instead of Dazai

I’d love to see the shift of dynamics if Chuuya and Dazai were both in the Agency or if it was just Chuuya. I think Chuuya has a ton to gain by getting employed by Fukuzawa (total control over Corruption), and it would be fascinating to see his unique set of morals and loyalty played out in such a different environment, even if the Agency existed early enough for Fukuzawa to snatch him up with his desire to belong and protect before Mori got there. (I’m very fond of Chuuya in Fifteen.)

Since this is an AU where Oda is alive, it’d be great to see all three of them on the side that saves people, and they can get together before or after.

Fate Holy Grail War AU

Yes, please Port Mafia vs. ADA vs. government vs. Guild vs. Rats in the House of the Dead, etc. played out by summoning heroes. Or them being summoned as heroes. I don’t care how you do it.

Machineries of Empire AU

There are some great choices here for making Abilities or organizations work as divisions of a hexarchate or operate on different calendrical technologies, and having people seconded in with others. Grab setting or story or just the premise, and I’ll be happy camper.

I’m also in love with the idea of Dazai as some kind of Kujen who didn’t rewrite his psychology to make atrocity easier or commit as many and Oda as someone he saved via the Black Cradle and Chuuya wherever you want to fit a third member of that triumvirate.

One Specific Demographic has soulmates while others don’t; Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks

Alpha/Beta/Omega Mating Bond Required for Marriage or Children; Threesomes are socially ideal form of relationship

Preferring relationship fic vs. smut if going with the ensemble characters. If you’re interested in smut, please see my a/b/o preferences under a particular pairing.

I actually really like the idea of alpha/beta/omega as all three genders necessary in some way or mirroring real trimophism in nature where genders have three different variations like that. I also love the idea of three people being necessary for a relationship. I like how this brings together the trios I love most as an ideal realationship and I like how this makes couples the odd one out. I like all the canon ships and ship baits if you’re looking to do broad examples and you can sell me on pretty much any configuration of the Blue Clan alphabet boys, though prefer Fushimi left out of that.

Mandatory marriage by a certain age; Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks; One Specific Demographic has soulmates while others don’t

I love any excuse for people who are actually in love with each other and live married to have to be official about it while not necessarily acknowledging it’s because they’re in love. I really love the forced intimacy and picking the least bad option that later grows or acknowledges feelings of the mandatory marriage tag.

I’m thinking Clans or Clans and Strains as the demographic and would love to see any of my favorite pairings stuck with each other as soulmates or arranged marriage partner.

I adore soulmarks (all but names), especially when they were really, really not expecting each other and when the marks are meaningful or feel like they could arise naturally for biological reasons and when it complicates everything and it’s not a bandaid or an easy fix and it’s totally a lot of work to make a relationship work because a mark doesn’t just rewrite all the annoying parts of the other’s personality. In this case, it just gets you married to them whether you think the other person’s insufferable or not.

Totsuka Survives Being Shot and Tries to Stop a Clan War from a Hospital Bed

Totsuka gets shot but doesn’t die and is trying to prevent a clan war from a hospital bed with as much whump and hurt/comfort and anxious tension as your heart’s desire or as funny as you’d like with impediments like a stubborn absent Mikoto and nurses bearing painkillers and well-meaning clansmen. Really, however you want to do this, I will adore you.

K: Avatar!Fushimi Saruhiko, Avatar & Benders Setting

I love the idea of the Clans as benders. Homura make obvious firebenders and Scepter 4 waterbenders, but the rest seem more up for grabs, since electricity which goes with Jungle goes with fire in the ATLA setting, and Silver Clan picks up airbending, but Colorless is who knows what. Spirit bending? I like the idea of Fushimi with his multiple auras as the Avatar. I love the idea of showing them with their classic non-aura weapons as well.

Star Trek AU, Jedi AU, Star Wars fusion

I’ve always love Star Trek, Star Wars, and most space stories, and I’d love to see art inserting them into that kind of environment, wearing the traditional garb, or in action with or without some interpretation of aura into that universe. I love the idea of Yukari and Kuroh as “brothers” who went different ways or Fushimi/Yata and their former attachment + separation being shown in this environment, but really whatever works.

Leverage AU

Yeah, love Leverage, love these fandoms, would love to see them heisting, however you want to show that.

Munakata Reisi/Suoh Mikoto (K Project)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

I’ve watched K (Anime), the Missing Kings movie, and Return of Kings (Anime), read Lost Small World, most of Memory of Red and Kingdom of Red, and a ton of the miscellaneous shorts running around, though I haven’t finished getting through all of them. I’ve also watched K: Blaze, Side Blue, Lost Small World, Memory of Red, and am working on the rest of K: Seven Stories. Feel free to incorporate as much manga/side content as your heart desires. My favorite shippy content for these two is the jail scene in K at the beginning, the death scene, the fact that Munakata is the only one who’s always seeing Mikoto’s Force Slate ghost in ROK, and K: Blaze. OMG, they were precious there. There’s also that little manga side where they met up for a drink that I absolutely adore.

What I Love About the Ship

So I fell in intense interest in this ship when Munakata slammed Mikoto’s head into a wall to wake him up and they proceeded to demonstrate how into it they were with their brand of fighting and restraining each other and taunting each other to get physical. There was definitely a heaping pile of UST in the middle of all those insults, and you could feel the genuine regret in Munakata for totally turning Mikoto down. Even though it was inevitable.

Their dynamic in K: Blaze when they met hit more of my buttons. I love their fighting as flirting, how downright philosophical Mikoto is and his point about Munakata needing to see things from other perspectives and not just his own, and the way he finally has someone he can go all out against without holding back or worrying about hurting those he cares about. I love that he can rile Munakata and the two sniping like sullen teenagers with the Gold King. Hookups, fighting/flirting, needling each other, perspective clashes, clashes over territory. More of the good stuff!

Their moments of connecting in that last private meeting (and dude, your face really is too close) and then the way Mikoto trusted his death to Munakata and died in his arms (while directing his last words to Anna), it’s just a gut punch and the way Munakata’s face fell— They genuinely cared about each other deeply, for all their sniping and being the only people who can get under each other’s skin so thoroughly.

I truly fell in love with the ship though in the one-shot where they meet up for drinks, then Munakata goes back after Mikoto died and they were truly friends. For all Kusanagi “caged” Mikoto by drawing him into helping/forming Homura, him and Totsuka gave him true friends and Munakata really doesn’t have that the same way. And really, just the way they feel about each other, all the good, the bad, and the intensity of it.

About Other Relationships

With the Homura trio, I can enjoy them having an open relationship that allows for additional relationships like Munakata and Seri, or in a closed relationship with each other, or in closed relationships with Munakata and Seri and just really close friendships with each other. I’d prefer no other Munakata relationships in the fic please.

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my other requested ships in the fandom, any canonical relationships or parents, etc.

About Smut

For this pairing, I prefer either topping or switching. Blaze also gave me a hankering to see more power bottom Mikoto, to be honest, but I’m legitimately pleased with whatever positions in sex, so long as they’re still basically equals in their dynamic.

I’d love to rough sex or hate sex or I’m making love but not admitting it out loud sex or this is just the quiet intimacy and acknowledgement of equals thing that we do without ever saying we like spending time with each other. Or you know, grieving sex after losing Totsuka. Any time you want to have Mikoto shut up Munakata by kissing or manhandling him, I am very here for that.

Person Mistaken For Mail-Order Spouse and Goes With It (in Canon ‘Verse); Person Mistaken For Mail-Order Spouse and Goes With It

I would absolutely adore Munakata thinking the perfect solution to a desire for a marital relationship is to order one and love even more Mikoto just rolling with it because he’s exactly the kind of person to never bother telling Munakata he’s not actually a mail-order spouse.

Male Fire God/New King Who Marries Him In What He Assumed To Be A Symbolic Ceremony AU

I think Mikoto is the obvious choice for a fire god. Just saying.

I love arranged marriages and culture clashes and I’d love to see worldbuilding and details for the religion/royalty that leads to both the situation and the misunderstanding. Frankly, I adore that difference of perspectives about the truth behind a magic or technology or religion, and I love the idea of this symbolic ceremony that happens to be true.

I really, really love fire gods and myths and would love to see him claiming this new king and the rituals of the wedding ceremony and why this works when he expects to get an heir some other way (thinking this was symbolic) and how it works for the kingdom and then the wedding night when he finds out this isn’t symbolic at all.

I’d love to see after the wedding night too when the marriage is a real thing, and the king has to get used to being married to a god and maybe getting gifts or visits and reaching some sort of emotional resolution.

Gods AU

This is my bulletproof trope. I love characters as gods and digging into the worldbuilding and how characters fit into their roles and using any existing god material in canon, e.g. the almost complete inviolability and unkillable nature of Kings.

Accidental Shapeshifter Marriage Due to Unknowing Theft of Animal Skin

I could see either of them accidentally making off with an animal skin, whether Munakata’s cleaning things up in some way or Mikoto has any good reason for putting one away or taking it home (he’s very go with the flow), and then ending up with their unexpected new spouse showing up at their place. I would love to see elements of humor and/or forced intimacy and differing expectations but few explanations and muddling their way into a proper relationship.

Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks

I’d prefer if this was how they met or they’re assigned shortly after meeting in Blaze, just long enough to know they’re in for it, and they’re both still Kings of their respective Clans in the canon setting.

I adore soulmarks (all but names), especially when they were really, really not expecting each other and when the marks are meaningful or feel like they could arise naturally for biological reasons and when it complicates everything and it’s not a bandaid or an easy fix and it’s totally a lot of work to make a relationship work because a mark doesn’t just rewrite all the annoying parts of the other’s personality. In this case, it just gets you married to them whether you think the other guy’s insufferable or not.

Kusanagi Izumo/Suoh Mikoto/Totsuka Tatara (K Project)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

I’ve watched K (Anime), the Missing Kings movie, and Return of Kings (Anime), read Lost Small World, most of Memory of Red and everything I can get my hands on of Kingdom of Red, and a ton of the miscellaneous shorts running around, though I haven’t finished getting through all of them. I’ve also watched K: Blaze, Side Blue, Lost Small World, Memory of Red, and am working on the rest of K: Seven Stories. Feel free to incorporate as much manga/side content as your heart desires.

What I Love About the Ship

Kingdom of Red was a gift. I love everything about how these three came together, how they interact, how they care about each other. I love Totsuka’s wanting to be in the King’s court and how Mikoto really became a King. I love how Kusanagi told him to be a friend, not a vassal. I love how Kusanagi’s uncle wanted him to have people he was actually with and not just serving. I love that it was basically Kusanagi that formed Homura and dragged Mikoto into it because they needed someone to protect them and Mikoto needed an outlet for his violence. I love how protective Mikoto is of everyone those two brought around him, and his absolute unwillingness to force anything on anyone. I love his and Kusanagi’s whole sorry is unnatural, never mind don’t apologize moment, and the fact that they did apologize because Mikoto realized he couldn’t just go recklessly get himself killed without regard for his friends’ feelings at all and Kusanagi realized that Mikoto would rather not be caged in by these people who depended on him.

Ack, it’s all so good!

And how Totsuka is Mikoto’s person he asks to stop him from rampaging until the Slates kill him, and can’t be burned by Mikoto and the whole way he handled the people who beat him up, refusing to bother the other two with them.

And seriously, the way Kusanagi tosses water on Mikoto in Blaze when he’s getting too broody. Mikoto living only twelve days after Totsuka and then showing up “early” to be with him, and the both of them when Anna saw them before she became King, and all the ouch, ouch, ouch of Kusanagi being left alone afterward without the other two.

I love all three of them, as a trio. They’re equals and true friends and all three of them matter in the way they work together and the way they run Homura.

About Other Relationships

With the Homura trio, I can enjoy them having an open relationship that allows for additional relationships like Munakata and Seri, or in a closed relationship with each other.

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my other requested ships in the fandom, any canonical relationships or parents, etc.

About Smut

So as far as topping preferences, I prefer Mikoto topping in general, but don’t mind seeing him bottom to Kusanagi or Munakata. Totsuka is a precious dear and I don’t see him as a top or an alpha, though I’m willing to be sold if there’s no shift in his personality and way of interacting with the other two. Kusanagi I like either way or switching, no real preferences.

I love the idea of rough sex or loving sex with them, though I lean more towards wanting to see them discover each other or reaffirming emotions they already have and can talk about but usually just don’t. It usually takes a lot for them to start talking about their feelings, but they act on them. If you want to do character expression, emotion, study, etc. via sex, I’m all in.

  • foreplay, body worship
  • arousal / desperate arousal
  • biting, nipping
  • delayed orgasm
  • overstimulation
  • very very quiet sex
  • using aura during sex
  • lazy morning sex
  • thank god we’re alive sex
  • heat sex / mating cycles / canon-compliant a/b/o, first time heat
Alpha/Beta/Omega Preferences

Generally prefer Mikoto as alpha, Kusanagi as alpha or beta, and Totsuka as omega. Am willing to be sold on other alignment.

I’m into scenting, knotting, desperate heat sex, desperate arousal, possessive nesting or cuddling, and did I mention desperation? Also love claiming with bites or temporary soulbond lite, do like description of scents and pheromones, lots of body worship because the heat’s made someone irresistible, and enjoy a bit of a case of dysphoria or body horror over how their body is out of their control and really doesn’t care about what they want intellectually.

If there’s a beta in the ship, I prefer betas that are considered part of the ideal threesome and aren’t sidelined as caretaker or “normal.” I prefer if a/b/o gender does not overwrite canon personality, people can still fight their instincts if that’s in character for them, and attraction is to particular alphas, betas, or omegas, not just anyone at all of the right secondary gender. DNW unrequested pregnancy, systemic oppression of and prejudice toward omegas, and please don’t use any dog/wolf/puppy terminology or focus on scent “glands” (scent fine), kinking on breeding the omega, or “presenting”.

Alpha/Beta/Omega Mating Bond Required for Marriage or Children; Threesomes are socially ideal form of relationship

I actually really like the idea of alpha/beta/omega as all three genders necessary in some way or mirroring real trimophism in nature where genders have three different variations like that. I also love the idea of three people being necessary for a relationship. In this case, it’s a great excuse for the three to get together or deal with heats or be able to adopt Anna.

Mandatory marriage by a certain age; Marriage Arranged Because of Matching Soulmarks

I love any excuse for people who are actually in love with each other and live married to have to be official about it while not necessarily acknowledging it’s because they’re in love. I really love the forced intimacy and picking the least bad option that later grows or acknowledges feelings of the mandatory marriage tag.

Or considering how much Totsuka was all shiny-eyed for Mikoto, I’d be totally into him having a matching soulmark (preferably not names) that got them all together since Kusanagi/Mikoto had definitely already established something before our sunshine cinnamon roll arrived. I really love the forced intimacy and picking the least bad option that later grows or acknowledges feelings of the mandatory marriage tag.

Awashima Seri/Kusanagi Izumo (K Project)

About the Ship

What I Love About the Ship

I first loved the way they interacted in the bar scene when she comes to give him an update on Mikoto and he makes her a drink, then I read the bit in the manga where he first gave her the offer for a drink when he invited her in out of the rain. I like that he finds her attractive (he’s not blind) but he also doesn’t push past any of the boundaries she actually sets. And I loved what they actually talked about, that they actually connect on a person to person level apart from attraction.

Them going undercover as married was adorable. I love the way they both run their clans, how they can work together and share burdens because they’re both in the same kind of position, and that it’s Clans first for both of them. I like that they don’t put each other first, and I can’t seem them doing the whole fluffy domesticity despite their compatibility. A practical marriage or marriage of convenience feels more likely for them than the traditional married with children and homemaking scenario.

So I love their competence, their quiet moments and how they show they care to their Clans and to each other, when Kusanagi gets flustered or startled and how she’s one of the moments that did that to him, and seeing the way they respect each other while also having that UST between them.

About Other Relationships

With the Homura trio, I can enjoy them having an open relationship that allows for additional relationships like Munakata and Seri, or in a closed relationship with each other, or in closed relationships with Munakata and Seri and just really close friendships with each other.

About Smut

It would be a missed opportunity to not include breast worship here, but I’m also hoping to see more of whole body worship and the way he treats her like someone who’s beautiful as well as competent. I love hair kink and spending time on foreplay or undressing or just in general going really slow or quiet. I like quiet because that’s how they are or quiet because they have to try to be. I’d love to see aura in the bedroom or being turned on by each other using their powers.

For things like desperate arousal, extended foreplay, slow sex, etc., I really love it when there’s this vivid description of how everything feels and the way it intensifies. That kind of description is catnip enough that while, for the sake of my faves, I want them to get off, I’m just as happy just reading that alone. I love uncontrolled/uncontrollable desire and the kind of desperate involuntary frottage, touching, kissing, biting, tasting that can result from that. The more desperate and intense, the better.

Fushimi Saruhiko/Yata Misaki (K Project)

About the Ship

Canon I’ve Consumed

I’ve watched K (Anime), the Missing Kings movie, and Return of Kings (Anime), read Lost Small World, most of Memory of Red and Kingdom of Red, and a ton of the miscellaneous shorts running around, though I haven’t finished getting through all of them. I’ve also watched K: Blaze and Side Blue and am working on the rest of K: Seven Stories. Feel free to incorporate as much manga/side content as your heart desires. I love every point in their timeline from pre-canon Lost Small World to Homura partners as in R:B to canon during the anime to post-ROK reconciliation.

What I Love About the Ship

Where do I start? I didn’t fall in love with these two until about halfway through the second season and I don’t know, there’s something about their history and how the two continued to mean so much to each other, even when they were at odds.

Yata is the first person Saruhiko ever experienced actual love and care and affection from and he made himself far more vulnerable to Yata than he ever admitted. I love that line in one of the audio dramas that he would have followed Yata into another clan if their positions had been reversed. Even though he eventually finds a way to belong in the Blue Clan, Yata remains extremely important to him and was the only person who really connected with him and tried to help him and be there for him. Munakata explicitly told him he’d have to handle his own problems in the Blue Clan.

Yata hated being alone: his biological father was out of the picture to the point that he had latched onto this family image of it being him and his mom against the world and took her second husband’s family name as the thing he prefers to be called all the time, and then he felt like an outsider in his own family when she had more kids, even though I think he cares about his siblings. He was maliciously and painfully rejected by those he thought were his friends. Then his best friend in the whole world tells him the second family they’ve found means nothing to him and abandons him too.

They snipe at each other and goad each other and yet they’re there for each other when it counts, even before they finally agree to take a stab at reconciliation when Yata acknowledges that leaving Homura was not in fact a betrayal. And it’s telling to me that both of them separately considered it a betrayal without being prompted to by the other. For years. Argh, these two and their emotional issues and inability to communicate half the time.

I love them and their push and pull, complementary skills when fighting or taking care of each other, the way Yata is half murder chihuahua, half pure ray of sunshine, and Saruhiko cares so much without ever saying anything, and just, I love them.

About Other Relationships

I’m fine with background relationships or relationship references of any of my other requested ships in the fandom, any canonical relationships or parents, etc. I’d prefer no other ships for Yata or Fushimi show up in fic please.

About Smut

Fine with dubious consent, experimentation with sex as teenagers, having sex as adults, and prefer them switching. If just one of them on top, tbh, I prefer Fushimi on bottom and Yata on top, but do whichever works for you.

I love their awkwardness that comes from Fushimi not knowing how to deal with feelings and Yata not knowing how to deal with sex and their off-the-charts tension whenever they go up against or with each other, and pinning Yata down with knives is a delightful canonical moment that could use some exploration in private. Also Fushimi canonically has an affinity for holding knives in his mouth before using them. If you go by way of using knives in the smut, please consider including this detail. Biting and inappropriate use of walls are just about bulletproof. And any time you want to include Fushimi shuts Yata up with kissing or manhandling, I am here for this.

  • foreplay, body worship
  • arousal / desperate arousal
  • biting, nipping
  • bloodplay (I like both blood from rough sex/knives and biting but get squicked by bites that draw more than a little blood)

  • delayed orgasm
  • overstimulation
  • wall sex
  • pinning people against walls with knives leads to sex
  • very very quiet sex
  • using aura during sex
  • wing kink, especially feathery wings
  • consensual somnophilia (with a preference for waking up when orgasm is inevitable)
  • voyeurism or accidental voyeurism
  • heat sex / mating cycles / first time heat (potentially relevant with animal shapeshifter au)

Male Fire God/New King Who Marries Him In What He Assumed To Be A Symbolic Ceremony AU

Yata being the fire god in this case.

I love arranged marriages and culture clashes and I’d love to see worldbuilding and details for the religion/royalty that leads to both the situation and the misunderstanding. Frankly, I adore that difference of perspectives about the truth behind a magic or technology or religion, and I love the idea of this symbolic ceremony that happens to be true.

I really, really love fire gods and myths and would love to see him claiming this new king and the rituals of the wedding ceremony and why this works when he expects to get an heir some other way (thinking this was symbolic) and how it works for the kingdom and then the wedding night when he finds out this isn’t symbolic at all.

I’d love to see after the wedding night too when the marriage is a real thing, and the king has to get used to being married to a god and maybe getting gifts or visits and reaching some sort of emotional resolution.

Changeling Who Stays with Adoptive Family/Standoffish Fellow Mage Student AU

I like the idea of Yata as the changeling and Fushimi as the mage, but either way is fine.

I love the idea of a changeling who stays with his human family and always feels a bit fish out of water and like he doesn’t belong, with fae instincts and human upbringing and magic that’s powerful, even more powerful than usual, but doesn’t fit in.

I’d love to see the standoffish fellow mage student as having good reasons of his own for his standoffishness, maybe a negligent family or other reason to feel like he doesn’t belong, and they get thrown together for magic or schoolwork and help each other as they fall in love despite themselves. Maybe fae use wild magic as capricious as they are and human mages use a rules-based magic system.

I’d love to see worldbuilding or magic details or culture clashes (especially concerning domestic or marital affairs and/or wedding traditions), maybe even a hint of how the changeling doesn’t fit in with fae any more than he does humans, and some of the way things work at the school and how they do or don’t fit into that.

Kemmer AU

I’d prefer them to keep their canonical characterization for the baseline, just be androgynous. If you show only one kemmer, I’d rather Saruhiko went female, but overall, prefer switching and no growing out their hair or changing their non-sexual traits to stereotypical gendered traits during kemmer, just being themselves but with changes in physical sex as part of the heat cycle. I absolutely love heats and in this case, the idea of Misaki being suddenly more awkward because Saruhiko’s a girl, which being a girl at all is a sex-related thing in this ‘verse, and exploring first times or figuring out how this all works is my catnip. Also desperate heat sex where you’re half out of your mind and inhibitions and good sense not desired required.

(The context referred to below is that you tend to take the opposite sex if exposed at the start of your kemmer to someone who’s already expressed a sex in their kemmer.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Left_Hand_of_Darkness “The inhabitants of Gethen are ambisexual humans; for twenty-four days (somer) of each twenty-six-day lunar cycle, they are sexually latent androgynes. They only adopt sexual attributes once a month, during a period of sexual receptiveness and high fertility, called kemmer. During kemmer they become sexually male or female, with no predisposition towards either, although which sex they adopt can depend on context and relationships”

Ladyhawke AU

So the two are cursed to be a crow and a… fox maybe? separated by day and night. Whether it’s someone from Jungle or Colorless that causes it or Fushimi tried to tie them together and it went all wrong or whatever. I’d love to see this AU for them. Preferably with a happy ending.

Misaki is exactly the kind of clueless to make off with some “mythological” creature’s skin and hide it by putting it away somewhere and end up with a shapeshifter spouse unwitting and on accident. And maybe Fushimi doesn’t mind as much as he lets on when it got him away from his birth family. Alternatively, I love the idea of Fushimi suddenly ending up with this cheerful caretaking bundle of violence and sunshine in his home as he’s going WTF and Homura’s maybe a group of shapeshifters and Yata’s too sheepish to admit Fushimi didn’t even mean to steal his skin. Just saying, this would be delightful.

I love the idea of Yata being a crow* or a dragon, but I’d rather not have Saruhiko actually be a monkey. A fox maybe? Or a dragon too. You can’t go wrong with dragons. Feel free to use some other Japanese-appropriate animal that seems suitable. *I am a total sucker for feathers and wing kink so uh… feel free to include that too if your heart desires.

Avatar!Fushimi Saruhiko

I just love the idea of firebender Yata and multiple element bending Fushimi (in honor of his multiple auras) and still with his knives.

Yata Went with Fushimi to Scepter 4

Alternatively, I love Fushimi’s thoughts that if they just want power, there are more clans out there than Homura and he would have followed Yata if Yata had left Homura. What if Yata did follow Fushimi. And he’s a terrible fit for Scepter 4 but maybe Munakata with his ability to see the best place for everyone would find a way to make this inseparable duo work, for Fushimi’s sake.

Fushimi Stayed with Homura AU

I absolutely adore these two in R:B and the material for when they were together in Homura. I’d love to see an AU where they figure out how to make it work or someone notices before Nagare pushes him over the edge. Fushimi may have been a better fit for Scepter 4 but he definitely brought a huge amount of value to Homura and did fit in a way there.

Made Up Spouse That Turns Out to be Real

I absolutely love this trope, whether it’s:

  • The mundane one party was faking the relationship for some sort of real reasons with real stakes, or at least a plausibly character-related bad reason (I can totally see Misaki blurting out something like he’s married to get out of a girl’s attention, just saying, should circumstances play out right) but did something to make it seem more real and it caught the real person on the other end, and then the real person they “made up” needed their own ticket out of family or life obligation problems that getting handed a significant other just happened to provide. (Seriously, Fushimi could use a ticket out of his home life, just saying.)
  • The made up significant other comes into existence (or the timeline) in response to someone’s wish or magic and thinks they were always real.
  • The significant other is a real person but suddenly thinks they’ve been in a relationship all this time as reality sort of rewrites itself around the person’s story of it, and they have to sort that out.

I love it when there are awkward, sudden intimacies that the main character didn’t plan for but can’t entirely turn down without bringing down the house of cards and when the two characters in the relationship end up together after working through initial difficulties of either sorting out reality or sorting out their issues.

One Specific Demographic Has Heat Cycles, One Specific Demographic has soulmates while others don’t

The one demographic being the clans, of course. For heats, you could go as narrow as red clan (with Fushimi not losing this when he defects). Okay, for soulmates too. Though for soulmates, you could also go with just green clan and Fushimi picks up soulmate recognition when he arrives there.

Fate Holy Grail War AU

I’d love to see Fushimi and Yata summoned as Heroic Spirits with Fushimi having knives as his noble phantasm and Yata as the most unconventional Rider with his skateboard.
