Fandoms


Boku No Hero Academia

Requested Characters + Relationships: Bakugou Katsuki, Yagi Toshinori | All Might, Aizawa Shouta | Eraserhead

What I Like About the Canon: Superheroes learning to superhero!, pushing themselves to the limit and beyond it, creative and exciting or unexpected uses of quirks, the entire idea of a society completely changed to include quirks and what that would really mean. And the characters.

I love Toshinori, particularly in his deflated form and being himself without putting on all the over-the-topness required to be All Might. I love his tension with Aizawa in the first few episodes and would love to see more of that. I feel like I didn’t get nearly enough in canon. I love Katsuki and his own brand of brash awkward confidence and complete lack of shame, but while keeping a moral center that surprised the villains and I love how sharp and intelligent and observant he is.

I love so much of Class 1-A, so feel to include them. Ships I don’t mind if you want to include any, but feel free not to: Aizawa/Toshinori, Bakugou/Kirishima, Bakugou/Midoriya, Bakugou/Todoroki, Bakugou/Midoriya/Todoroki, Midoriya/Uraraka, Todoroki/Yaoyorozu, Kaminari/Jirou. I would be very happy to receive gen. Please don’t include any ships not listed above, though mentions of parents are fine.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): gore; lots of blood; mentions of severed or detachable body parts or exposed internal organs; Himiko; Mineta; anyone at all perving on the girls or anyone else.

Also, I’d prefer not to receive any implications that all public use of quirks is totally banned, as that’s not really supported by canon, just that using your quirks in specific ways, including to hurt someone, has to be licensed.

Fanwork Types

On a Personal Note: I love the personal tension between Aizawa and Toshinori and their friendships and relationships with their other peers and former classmates, and between Katsuki and just about everybody. I also adore scrapbooking. I’d love to see their personalities and personal history a little this way.

In-Universe Personal Documents – Scrapbook Page(s)

On a Professional Note: I adore in-universe news and media covers, spreads, or articles and would love to see some outside POV of any of the three requested characters, especially the things they get both wrong and right and stuff we know that the characters would never tell.

In-Universe Publication – Newspaper Article;
In-Universe Publication – Magazine Cover;
In-Universe Publication – Magazine Spread;
In-Universe Publication – Magazine Article;
In-Universe Publication – Biography In-Universe;
In-Universe Publication – Tabloid Article

On an Educational Note: I love both Aizawa and Toshinori in their teacher roles and the entire class pretty much. I’d love to see Quirk-inspired safety instructions or textbooks or excerpts of the studies they’d do about heroing that aren’t boring regular schoolwork. Though frankly, I love school textbooks, so if you want to introduce “boring regular schoolwork” as changed and influenced by the Quirk and hero/villain history worldbuilding, I am all eyes and ears, yes please!

Also Open to Receiving: Ship manifestos for literally any ship you ship in this fandom. I’m a multishipper at heart (I’ve had four or five character favorites in my life I don’t multiship), but for some reason, BNHA canon hasn’t given me the kind of shippyness I know how to latch onto. I’ve listed all the ships I don’t mind and can enjoy reading above, but I’m eager to get some actual ships, so please tell me what got you shipping and what you love about how those characters interact and their relationship! ♥

Bungou Stray Dogs

Requested Characters + Relationships: Nakahara Chuuya, Edogawa Ranpo, Dazai Osamu/Nakahara Chuuya, Nakahara Chuuya & Ozaki Kouyou, Izumi Kyouka & Ozaki Kouyou, Fukuzawa Yukichi & Nakahara Chuuya

What I Like About the Canon: Superhumans who aren’t vigilantes is one of my favorite things ever, and I love the ways abilities work for and against their users in the BSD universe, and I love so many of the characters. My favorites are above.

I love geniuses being genius and sly; the super competence of almost everybody; a literal vessel of a god and overpowered abilities or creative uses of abilities; everybody holding their cards close to their chest; the fact that nobody does talk things through properly, they just act on their conflicted emotions; the relationships! whether shippy or platonic; all the different brands of adorable and scary dangerous; and all the angles it comes at figuring out power and protecting a city while being good, bad, and/or somewhere in between. I love the moral ambiguity of BSD, and that the characters have layers and nuance and good traits and bad.

My favorite BSD stuff is less the silliness or murder or how dark it can go, but more all the other stuff between in how these people with different moral compasses work together for a common goal. I really love all the close personal relationships regardless of what sides they end up on.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): gore or pools of blood, torture, killing any character we actually know (faceless enemy minions is fine), crossdressing, embarrassing situations, Fyodor or Shibusawa receiving any major focus.

Also please no referring to Dazai as just “Osamu” or give Chuuya any non-Japanese human heritage. Also, would prefer not to receive unprompted pairings, even as background pairings.

Fanwork Types

Any Canonical Thing You Can Think Of: I love the characters, their relationships, their backstories (especially Kouyou, Chuuya, Ranpo, and Yosano), detective cases!, and Mafia interacting with the Agency. I’d love to see any of these incorporated into these fanwork types!

For dolls or games, I’d also love any of the canonical AUs, Bungo Mayoi art, or official art AUs.

Any of the Personal Relationships: My first thought for contract was Double Black, whether bratty teen, professional, or personal. But anyone that might be inclined to make a contract to govern a personal relationship would make me happy. Besides the relationships I requested, I also like Fukuzawa’s personal relationships with his employees, Ranpo/Poe, and Atsushi with Akutagawa, Lucy, or Kyouka. I’d adore scrapbook pages with any of my favorites and interactive fiction with any of them or ensemble.

K Project

Requested Characters + Relationships: Fushimi Saruhiko, Scepter 4, Homura, Awashima Seri/Kusanagi Izumo, Daikaku Kokujoji & Adolf K. Weismann & Klaudia Weismann, Fushimi Saruhiko/Yata Misaki, Kusanagi Izumo/Suoh Mikoto/Totsuka Tatara, Mishakuji Yukari & Yatogami Kuroh, Yatogami Kuroh/Yukizome Kukuri

What I Like About the Canon: Superhumans, clans and clan relationships, former family or best friends who end up on opposite sides and still care about each other, overpowered characters where that power is both a major advantage and a serious liability, everyone caring so much. I love the anime, love the relationship between Mikoto and Anna, (Anna and each member of the Homura trio, let’s be real), and all the ships teased throughout K Project. I love the family relationships, the shippy relationships, the Clan relationships, have I mentioned I’m a huge sucker for clans? I love both the rivalries and the friendships and alliances between clans. I love the backstories and the heartbreaking but lovely Circle Vision and post-canon possibilities. Some of my favorites listed above.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): fanservice on the female characters, any ships with Neko.

Also, would prefer no non-canonical character death or permanent injury.

Fanwork Types

The Black Dog and His Clans: I really love Kuroh’s canonical love of both Ichigen’s poetry and his writing his own and Yukari being so proud of him for it, even to telling Ichigen about it in Circle Vision.

Poetry – Haiku Collection (3 or more);
Poetry – Haiku Series (3 or more)

Scepter 4: I love Fushimi’s so done with this “I don’t care” while being the hardest overworker of all, Awashima’s so professional and competent about everything and caring so much more than people realize, and Munakata’s smug genius dork of epic proportions, and all the alphabet boys being generally adorable while also getting on Fushimi’s nerves.

I’ve always loved forms and documents and Scepter 4’s work is so interesting and the characters behind the paperwork have so much personality, I’d love to see whatever you come up with here. I’d also love to see a little more of the deskwork side of Intelligence, where Fushimi ostensibly works.

In-Universe Professional and Academic Documents – Mission Debrief/Transcript;

Personal Relationships: I’d love, love, love scrapbook pages or journal entries for the personal relationships between characters. Yata would be the kind of person to have scrapbook stuff from his friendship (backstory or post-canon) with Fushimi, and Homura has all those photos. I’d love if Yukari and Kuroh and Ichigen had anything like that too! Or anyone requested that fits with these tags.

Creating, Discovering, or Studying the Dresden Slate: So canonically we have a magical artifact that taps into the power of wishes, runs on the five elements, and is implied to have been created or modified to create kingship when there was a Latin script to use on it. Was it used to make Roman Kings way back when? Was it unearthed and the word King added to it but it goes back further? I always want to know more about who created it and why, why it was sealed and buried, and would love, love, love anything regarding the Weismanns and Kokujoji studying it.

In-Universe Publication – Alternate Version of Existing Historical Text;
In-Universe Media and Online – Folktale;
In-Universe Professional and Academic Documents – Scientific Sketches;
In-Universe Publication – Scientific Research Paper

Any Canonical Thing You Can Think Of: I love the general working functions of each clan before everything went to clan war and would love something set in their ordinary world/life or something that fits into any of the canonical storylines or a canon divergence.

I’d also love something based on any of the official art, whether it’s stories of backstory or postcanon or one of the AUs, e.g. look at these pretty outfits!

Audio and/or Visual – Comic

Legend of Korra

Requested Characters + Relationships: Kuvira, Korra & Kuvira, Bataar Jr./Kuvira, Kuvira and Toph Beifong, Suyin Beifong & Kuvira

What I Like About the Canon: I love Kuvira and the whole Beifong family, despite or because of their serious competence and arrogance and good intentions, even when they screw up (and all of them do). I like that the characters are complicated and I like all the implications of some actual nuance in the show before it decided to flatten that to make Kuvira clearly a villain. She had a heart, good intentions, a mix of good ideas and bad, and really was the only person besides the airbenders fixing her nation at that time and doing anything to stitch the government back together.

I’d love to see that nuanced take brought to any fanwork for this, and I’d love to see her actual relationship with the Beifongs or Korra highlighted or explored as well. I would love to see some kind of Toph mentoring Kuvira as a kid, or even post-canon that doesn’t equate to Kuvira did everything wrong and everyone else did everything right. I’m seriously in the camp of Kuvira deserves to get redemption (and also wasn’t prejudiced against benders of other elements).

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): protagonist-centered morality (Suyin trying to assassinate Kuvira was absolutely wrong), character bashing, focus on the dark side of police states, whether Zaofu, Earth Kingdom/Empire, or Ba Sing Se.

Fanwork Types

Any Canonical Thing You Can Think Of: I’d love to see stuff that covers the Reunification efforts or any of Bataar Jr.’s engineering or a way post-canon biography of Kuvira or Korra or any of the other requested characters above. All of these fanwork types interest me, whether geared toward all the personal relationships and dynamics or toward the outsider POV public opinion side.

Personal Relationships: I would adore Bataar Jr.’s angsty teen love poetry or scrapbook pages of the family, or love letters or personal letters.

In-Universe Personal Documents – Poetry;
In-Universe Personal Documents – Scrapbook Page(s);
In-Universe Personal Documents – Letters;
Audio and/or Visual – Comic

Vid: Here, I’m hoping for an AMV of Kuvira or Kuvira/Bataar Jr. I’ve especially had a hankering for Kuvira to Demi Lovato’s Confident, and for them, literally any shippy thing. Prefer pop, folk, but not too much electric guitar / rock.

The Librarians Crossovers

Requested Characters + Relationships: The Librarians Team with Eve Baird & Waver Velvet & Flat Escardos (Lord El Melloi II Case Files), The Librarians Team with Eve Baird and Clans Ensemble (K Project), The Librarians Team with Eve Baird & Mage Society Ensemble (Fate)

What I Like About the Canon: So I love the Librarians team: Jacob, Cassandra, Ezekiel, Jenkins, and Baird all have warm fuzzy places in my heart, and I’d love to see them dealing with the magic artifacts or societies of Fate (a secret magical society pursuing the magical singularity while being downright ruthless in the meantime) or the Dresden Slate in K (an unburied magical artifact that taps into the power of wishes to create superhuman kings, clans, and strains).

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): gore, torture or descriptions of it, evil spirits or demons, necromancy, severed body parts or exposed internal organs, “only one librarian”, mind control.

Fanwork Types

Any Canonical Thing You Can Think Of: I just want to see the Librarians having to deal with magical peoples or contain magical artifacts of other canons, or even deal with a Holy Grail War. That would make a fantastic clipping book entry sending them off on a mission. I’d love any way you want to fit these into a game type situations or any of these fanwork types.

Lord El-Melloi II Case Files

Requested Characters + Relationships: Waver Velvet, Flat Escardos, Reines El-Melloi Archisorte, Svin Glascheit, Gray, Add, Waver Velvet/Iskandar

What I Like About the Canon: I loved the first LN, then I got my eyes on the new anime Rail Zeppelin grace note, and I am utterly in love. I love the conceit, the opening and closing, the relationships between all the characters, the backstabbing politics in the Mage world, Waver’s sense of right and wrong, his approach to and technical expertise in all the different kinds of magecraft, and every little bit of his students bickering or their eccentricities, his detective persona, his and Policies hostile flirting, the continued references to the Holy Grail War and Iskandar, and also Flat hacking magic. He is the best. I also really, really love Gray’s relationship with Waver, her girl day with Reines, the way Reines gets along with Waver and teases him terribly, Svin and Flat being adorable together, and Svin’s crush on Gray.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): gore, severed limbs/dismemberment/etc., necromancy.

Also would strongly prefer canon setting and no alternate universe unless it’s canon divergence where the cat doesn’t die or he manages to summon Iskandar outside of a Grail War.

Fanwork Types

Modern Magecraft Studies: Teacher and Students: The unruliness of Waver’s class delights me, and also the way magecraft works or is supposed to work before Flat does something dastardly is generally fascinating and fun to me, and I’d love pretty much any in-universe or in-character class-related materials here.

In-Universe Professional and Academic Documents – Academic Exam (Complete Corrected And Scored);
In-Universe Professional and Academic Documents – Homework Assignment (Completed);
In-Universe Professional and Academic Documents – Lecture Notes;
In-Universe Publication – Textbook

Any of the Personal Relationships (whether under the guise of convenience or professional, etc. or not): I love the found family vibe Svin and Flat and Gray and Waver and Reines and Melvin have, though not all of them together at once! Also the relationship between Waver and Iskandar. I’d love to see scrapbooking for them, or ill-advised angsty teen love poetry whether between Svin and Flat or Svin toward Gray or Waver/Iskandar or Flat toward Waver! Fluffy domestic magic shenanigans comics also welcome.

Lord El Melloi II Trying to Handle His Professional Duties Here: Despite everything and everyone (he cares about) standing in his way. For the job posting, I know he’s not looking for anyone in canon right now, but it’d be fascinating to see what he’d have to ask for or require if he was. I also don’t know what he’d be translating, but I’d love to see his notes!

Machineries of Empire

Requested Characters + Relationships: Garach Jedao Shkan, Ajewen Cheris, Cheris & Jedao

What I Like About the Canon: I love the characters, the idea of calendrical exotic affects, the servitors (I could read books and books about them, and Cheris’s relationship to the servitors, and the voidmoths. I love what Jedao was trying to do from the beginning and his personality. I’d love looking closer at the implied worldbuilding and all the stuff the books left out.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): gore, torture, remembrances, body horror, corruption of Jedao or Kujen (or anyone else), Cheris and Jedao Two’s relationship, mind control/compulsion, sex.

Fanwork Types

Discovering Calendrical Effects: The stories of the first Kel formations and Kujen trying to solve for various problems and Cheris working the math with servitors all fascinated me. I’d love to see stuff related to figuring out this world’s magic, though I’d prefer it to be some of the non-weapon effects, unless it’s Kel.

Servitors, Clocks, and Voidmoths, Oh My!: I love, love, love the servitors and the voidmoths and would love to know more about their native cultures or any of the tinkering on technology mentioned in the book. I love inventions and engineering and technobabble or real descriptions if you know how it ought to go.

Original Work: Mermaids and Dragons

Requested Characters + Relationships: Marine Biologist & Deep Sea Mermaids, First Female Zoologist and Anthropologist to Study Dragons & Dragon Clan, Girl Lost in Ocean Raised by Mermaids Turned Pirate Captain & Mermaids & Crew

What I Like About the Canon: I love mermaids and dragons and worldbuilding and figuring out/finding out how different societies or biologies, etc. work. I would love absolutely anything you come up with for these.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): I don’t mind dragons that shapeshift to human, but please don’t write me any mermaids shifting to human; prefer no man-eating, cannibalism, or darkfic/bad endings.

Fanwork Types

Scientific Papers, Sketches, or Maps: Just all of it, give me all of it or any of it, and I will love you forever. I adore mermaids and dragons and love fantasy recast as science and really really love all of these work types. I’d love to see any kind of game based around discovery or studying and being accepted or around the pirate mermaid daughter captain’s adventures.

Original Work: Hero and Her Bemused Enemies

Requested Characters + Relationships: Hero Still Fighting Crime Despite Being Turned Into A Small Lizard & Her Bemused Enemies

What I Like About the Canon: The room for humor! Surprising competence! Adventure on a grander size difference scale than planned! I just absolutely love the idea of this so much.

What I Don’t Like About the Canon (Please Do Not Write): making the hero a damsel in any way or any kind of embarrassing situations or gross-out humor.
