OW5K Letter

Hello, dear original fiction writer!

First off, thank you and I’m so happy we could connect over one or more ships and/or characters! I strongly prefer science fiction or fantasy with an emphasis on characters or worldbuilding, but am eager to see whatever you come up with.

Prompts in the letter are grouped by what I’m most hoping to see from the fic, but is not an indicator of preference. I would love fic for absolutely any of these. If you get excited and want to write more than one ship, please, please, please, be my guest! Thank you again!

Thrown Together

Smut, No Smut

I love the idea of people that end up together without really getting to pick who in any meaningful way and having to discover each other while already being in “intimate” circumstances. I’m happy with no sex, adding sex once they know each other, or sex while they don’t and everything is awkward (or surprisingly hot) but consensual. Basically, these are all sudden married to a stranger, which is one of my favorite things.

General Prompts:

culture shock, learning to live with someone they’re slowly growing to understand, escaping overbearing relatives, finding solace together, five times they didn’t trust each other and one time they did, the little things that make a person fall in love, realizing they’re in love well after they are, working through cultural misunderstandings, one person trying to hold their heart at bay but failing in the face of relentless romantic pursuit, someone’s relentless romantic pursuit less romantic than they thought but points for effort

General Prompts with sex(iness):

first time sex (after a buildup of trust or as agreed upon consummation), getting carried away and ending up having sex and then having to live together awkwardly after until they’re willing to talk about it, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, neck kisses, wrist kisses, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Grumpy Genius Magic Student/Shapeshifter He Marries by Accidentally Stealing Their Skin (M/M):

Okay, so first off, I love magic schools, I’m thinking post-grad here, and magical races and the idea of both of these people having no idea how this whole marriage thing happened. I’m also into people not being stupid so if they get around to figuring it out that’s okay too, just so long as they’ve decided to stay together before they figure out how to clear things up!

I have a thing for OP grumpy geniuses and would love to see some of it on display. I love competence kink, especially mutual competence kink. Would love to see them clashing personality or culture or even power wise. How do their magics interact? Does the student try to pass off his new husband as a fellow student? Or do they get raucous congratulations right off and have to act like they meant to do that? Do they work magic together? Or have to mark some “I’m not your familiar” boundaries? I’d just love to see every single bit of sorting themselves out as a couple to get to their happy after.

Native of a Newly Colonized Planet/Mail Order Husband of Colonizer Species (Other):

So I kind of love the idea of this colony of humans getting along with the native population (in a non-exploitative way; I’d prefer both sides of the equation to be happy for them to be there), and one of the native aliens goes and orders themself (any gender or non-gender or made up alien gender fine) a human mail order husband, having been delighted with the human idea of it. Does the mail order husband know they’re marrying an alien? What makes them sign up for it? What’s it like learning to live with an alien? Do they hit it off or have to figure things out?

I’d love to see them learning about each other, maybe some exploration of the world they’re on, and most of all, I love the whoa! fish out of water, overwhelming new relationship thrown right in the deep end between members of completely different species. I’d love if the alien was a bit of a cinnamon roll, but maybe they don’t have any idea how to show that in a human fashion. And they probably have very, very different ideas of what’s romantic than a human does.

Alien Preferences: Okay, so aliens! I adore 1. humanoid, 2. shapeshifting, or 3. feathered or furry and preferably with wings, or you could also do 4. SF dragons or phoenixes or mermaids or the like. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I said above about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Colonist on a Newly Terraformed Planet/Mail Order Husband (F/M):

I kind of love the idea of this woman who’s part of a terraforming project and probably very intelligent or a high-level professional to be one of the starting colonists and she’s ordering in a husband from her homeworld. I love the idea of the woman being weighted somewhat more powerful in the relationship to start off with. I love the idea of colonizing and terraforming and any worldbuilding or technical or societal details you might possibly want to throw into that.

Is the mail order husband going because he needs this sort of arrangement or is he excited and eager to get married? Is the colonist lonely, planning for the future because it’s part of the colonist package, or just short on other options for finding the right someone? I’d love to see some settling in, sorting out boundaries (physical or emotional), any kind of competence kink, or even handling the more adventurous trials of building a colony on an uninhabited planet together.

Competent PTSD Martial Artist Wife/Competent Husband/Assigned Male 3rd Spouse to Save Marriage (F/M):

Okay, so this prompt combines my love of “arranged” or “assigned” marriages, competence kink, powerful women and the kind of men that fall in love with them exactly as they are, and when things start to become a problem when someone starts pulling away. So the idea was that one or both of them tries to initiate divorce and instead they get assigned a “compatible” third spouse to try to save the marriage. I’d love to see how that idea works in practice, someone that can reach out in a way that the people already involved can’t.

I’d love to see what kind of person gets assigned, whether it’s a cinnamon roll or someone with their own kind of reserve. What makes them the right kind of compatible to potentially save the marriage. Do the husband or wife help him know things about the other’s preferences or habits that help him settle in? Do either of them open up to him, grudgingly or willingly? Does he open up to them about how he ended up here? Is he eager to get married or was he as surprised by the assignment as they were? Also, any kind of on-screen martial arts, especially leading to attraction, would be wonderful.


Smut

So this is kind of like arranged marriage / bonding, but it’s designed to be more about getting things done than having feelings, and they both know what they’re getting into. I would definitely like there to be sex in these stories, but I’d also kind of like it to be consequential: with a build-up and/or an aftermath. It can also just be a scene where it makes sense to have one, I’m not picky.

I love the idea of people that end up together without really getting to pick who in any meaningful way and having to discover each other while already being in “intimate” circumstances. I love the idea of having to be close to someone they may clash with on personality, opinions, or cultural mismatches.

F Rebel Scientist/M Rebel Arms Maker Using Sex-Triggered Soulbond to Pass Intel (F/M):

So to start off with, I love the idea of soulbonds being useful ways of creating private channels of information sharing, and someone using that to get around all legit ways of tracking them. I’d love to see the kinds of people that would devote themselves enough to a cause to make one, love to see it in use to pass intel around those they’re trying to hide from/avoid and how they pass off this relationship of convenience as nothing important to those they’re surrounded by. I would definitely love to see a bit of a rocky relationship upfront where the only thing they share in common is their convictions and the rest is all learn to live with each other.

Prompts with sex(iness): initiating the soulbond, spontaneous rough sex or against a wall or over a table, arguing leading to sex, having sex at scheduled intervals to maintain the bond but otherwise doing a long-distance “relationship”, or you know, getting stuck in a safehouse together, or soulbonds are permanent but it’s for the cause, five times they did not trust each other and one time they did, learning that they’ve been falling in love all along, opening up about little things and slowly developing a relationship, outside POV of how others perceive their relationship as it grows from basically fuckbuddies to something more, first time with feelings, first time with kisses, patching each other up and feeling like that was way too intimate vs. the other stuff they do together, wrist kisses, hand kisses, slow build desperate arousal, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Female Alpha in First Rut/Arranged Temporary Husband (F/M); Female Omega in First Heat/Arranged Temporary Husband (F/M):

Temporary marriages as a solution to heats and ruts! Families get to make sure their older teen/young adult kid gets a decent experience with someone that’s “suitable” for a year or so, and everybody knows what they’re getting into. Except for the falling in love bit. They’re expecting to get each other through their firsts and not do the falling in love bit, but I’d love to see their expectations on that front upended.

Do they get an experienced temporary husband or someone just as new to all this as they are? Who falls first? Would love to see relatively immediate attraction and the big source of friction being the temporariness of the arrangement as they figure out they want it to continue but maybe aren’t sure where the other stands. Feel free to have your own ideas though! Is the family a problem for the relationship or on board? Is the family involved at all? I’m fine with this being a newly independent person making their own arrangements too!

A/B/O Preferences: I would prefer no young teens for this request. I like worldbuilding that allows for alpha males and females, though I’d prefer if alpha females can still get pregnant (and would use protection in this case, though none of that has to be mentioned in fic) and don’t have actual cocks. Please mind the DNWs re: fluids in sex. I love heat/rut sex for the extra desperation, for the enforced cuddling afterward (whether awkward or wonderful), and love possessive instincts and really liking the way each other smells. I like the idea of personality being stronger than any instinctual dominance / submission and that just being a flavor on their own temperament.

Prompts with sex(iness): first time sex, getting carried away and ending up having sex with feelings and then having to live together awkwardly after until they’re willing to talk about it, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, neck kisses, wrist kisses, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Established Relationship Evolves

Smut, No Smut

There is something to be said for a relationship with history. I love established relationship fic particularly for that, so whether they start off as a long-standing romantic relationship or in some cases are trying to move from friends to lovers, I am very very much here for that sense of their history together—and also them taking base advantage of it.

I’m just as happy whether you get to sex or not, though I’d prefer any sex scenes to be consequential and have build-up and/or aftermath to them. Especially when they’re interjecting a relationship that this is a big step for, whether that’s the new lovers element altogether or reconciling / building something new after amnesia. I’m also fine with the virgin unicorn hunters starting a romantic, non-sexual relationship if they decide to keep their profession.

General Prompts:

moments of companionship, showing their friendship in action and how good they are for each other as they are, five times they thought they understood each other and one time they actually did, or five times they actually understood each other and one time they figured it out, trying to woo someone who really does read everything as the friendship/relationship you already got, hurt/comfort moments whether emotional or physical, sleeping on each other, demonstrating trust, planning or working together and both contributing intelligently

General Prompts with sex(iness):

first time sex, first time with feels, getting carried away and ending up having sex and then having to live together awkwardly after until they’re willing to talk about it, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, neck kisses, wrist kisses, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Female Spaceship Security Crew Member with Amnesia from Injury/Male Spaceship Engineer (F/M); Female Spaceship Security Crew Member with Amnesia from Injury/Male Spaceship Pilot (F/M); Male Spaceship Security Crew Member with Amnesia from Injury/Male Spaceship Engineer (M/M); Male Spaceship Security Crew Member with Amnesia from Injury/Male Spaceship Pilot (M/M):

To me these four tags all go together. I’m definitely looking for roughly the same thing out of any of them, just you got options. To be specific, I’m a sucker for amnesia, I adore one partner taking care of the other, I love the whole tension of trying to deal with being with and living with someone you’re supposed to know intimately and no longer do.

Bring on the angst and the feels and the relearning trust and how to be together and rediscovering all the things you had in common and even better in space. I love seeing some nuts and bolts of the worldbuilding, but I’m definitely here for a heavier focus on the relationship. I’d love to see them both at sea a little and trying so hard for each other, and I kind of love those moments when the person that’s hurt (in this case, has amnesia) tries to comfort the one that isn’t. Because this would be emotionally devastating for both of them. Most of all, I’m hoping to see them realizing they’re in love or falling in love again by the end.

Male Selkie/His Childhood Friend (F/M):

There’s a lot of built-in possibility here. I love friends to lovers, long-term pining, and the whole series of realizations that leads from my best friend to oh no, I’m in love. I also love the built in cultural differences and their very different worlds. I’d love to see them bridging those gaps or just never even thinking about them until suddenly love is in the mix and now they have to.

Did she ever “steal” his skin as a kid and then realized she shouldn’t have but actually he didn’t mind? Do they work out their whole relationship with lots of talking things through or stumble their way into it on accident and have to fix up the train crash of acting on feelings without talking about any of it first? How do the things they did as friends change when they fell for each other?

Xeno Preferences: Okay, so fantasy creatures! I adore 1. shapeshifting, or 2. a reasonable extrapolation of the fantasy creature’s size/anatomy but just handwaved via possibly large but manageable genital size to not be incompatible, or 3. temporary magic resize to compatible where necessary. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I’ve said elsewhere about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Pining Stoic Male Warrior Leader of Clan/Oblivious Cousin Female Warrior Leader of Allied Clan (F/M):

Okay, I’m gonna just put this at the top here: fighting and training together and planning together and being leaders and commiserating and being adult about it. And seriously, fighting together. Or fighting leads to sex, just saying.

Also teasing each other and being cousins and knowing each other and respecting each other and endless pining where she thinks he just hasn’t met the right someone yet or something and he’s like no one else compares to her, how’s he supposed to settle?

Maybe he’s getting pressure to marry and produce heirs or she is, but she hasn’t really be interested in settling down yet and if she did, it’d have to be someone she really respected anyway and it just happens to be someone like him, but she’s never thought of it, because cousins, or familiarity, or she’s just like that. I’d love to see any way you want to develop this and please, please lots of pining.

Virgin Unicorn Hunter/Her Mentor in the Guild (F/M):

I’d prefer if they are mentor/mentee but never thought of each other in a parent/child way. I really like the idea of these people with a built-in reason to ignore sex and sex-related things but are totally close to each other and have known each other forever and at least one of them is pining and very interested in being seen in a romantic light. I also really like the idea of her having started off as playing bait, but now she’s a thoroughly independent, capable hunter herself.

Tag-Specific DNW: Where unicorn hunters are specified, no talking/people-like unicorns pls! Just an exotic / fantasy animal

Virgin Unicorn Hunter/In Love Best Friend Trying to Persuade Him to Change Professions (M/M):

Built-in pining and resistance and long-term friendship and seriously dude, I want to sleep with you, find another job frustration! I’d love to see close friendship and pining and massive powers of persuasion against the massive rock of another’s stubbornness and what it’s like to beat his head against that wall and how he eventually prevails.

Tag-Specific DNW: Where unicorn hunters are specified, no talking/people-like unicorns pls! Just an exotic / fantasy animal


Smut

Female Hacker/Male Hacker Best Friend She Practices Kissing With/Her Male Crush (F/M):

I love the idea of a couple of geeks that love each other to pieces but never even think about what kind of love that is, and then one of them gets a crush and neither of them know anything about romance. Cue research and practice and trying it out on said crush and he may or may not realize at first that there’s some definite third-party assistance getting their dating life off the ground, but eventually she realizes she’s in love with her best friend (probably with some assistance from said practice), he realizes he’s in love with his best friend, and said crush decides he likes her best friend and not just her alone.

Feel free for it to be as happy for now and experimental as you like but I’d love to see them all end up together. I’d also love for her crush to be someone with the kind of intelligence and competence they can admire, together even, and if her best friend was totally supportive of the possible relationship because of it.

General Prompts with sex(iness): I’d love to see hands on practice (as much as you like), and also would love to see first time with feels for the pairing and/or the final trio and I’d love to see shippiness between all three of them. Awkward first kisses, acting out “tutorials” or stuff they find on the internet (the horror), being okay with things being funny and awkward because it’s safe when it’s with their best friend, practice paying off with the dating life initially before those pesky little feelings get involved… The shift from the crush’s outsider POV to finally understanding what’s going on and helping drive things to a happy conclusion for all of them.


No Smut

Rival Space Tech/Rival Space Wizard (Other):

I’m supremely interested in the idea of this long-term rivalry, and really, I just want to see all the technology porn, the intricacies of magic laid out, and everything happening in space, one of the loves of my fiction-loving life. Like, let them be competitive and larger than life and if you force them to work together too, for the greater good, all the better!

General Prompts: competing on bids for the same job, being hired by the same employer and trying to continue their rivalry despite sometimes having to work together, having a space accident and having to save the space station/space ship/moon/other structure they’re on together with bickering and flirting all the while, an expo of amazing things they’ve fashioned, sending each other creations designed to annoy each other, annoying each other with how they use each other’s creations that they received or went and bought themselves, like using some magnificent magical pitcher of plenty as a flowerpot so they don’t have to water their plants, etc.

Royal Heir ‘Captured’ By Dragon/Shapeshifting Dragon They’re In Love With (Other):

Shapeshifting dragons, secret romance, eloping via subterfuge, outsider POVs don’t understand! This tag is basically tailor made for my id, and I’d adore seeing them falling in love, learning about dragons, learning about humans, the extremely panicked aftermath of the royal heir being captured, royal siblings sabotaging the rescue efforts, the harassed couple fending off would-be rescuers, and every single tiny detailed thing you want to show me about this fantasy world or dragons. Especially dragons.

General Prompts: warm cuddly moments, the unexpected benefits and uses of dragon characteristics, does the dragon shift to large and scaly when they’re arguing? did they practice the kidnapping before they staged it? did they have anyone in the palace helping them? how to tame your dragon who finds you attractive for all the wrong non-human reasons and is that why romancing them wasn’t working, five times marrying outside their species wasn’t all it was cracked up to be and one time it totally was and made it all worth it

Get Together

Smut, No Smut

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 learn to trust each other, overcome their own personal emotional difficulties, or just open up to another person. I’m fine with sex scenes in these, but would like it to be consequential, with some build-up and/or aftermath.

General Prompts:

language barrier, cultural differences, learning to understand each other, pining despite themselves thinking it’s a bad idea, trying to romance the other in a way the other doesn’t recognize,

General Prompts with sex(iness):

first time sex, comfort sex, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, first kiss, wrist kisses, neck kisses, hair touching, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Virgin Librarian in a Magic Library/Unicorn Patron the Other Librarians Can’t See (Other):

Okay, so obviously, I love the idea of a unicorn patronizing a magic library (along with all the other fantasy races you want to throw in there), and still with the only approachable by virgins, which kinda limits the number of librarians available to them. I’d love to see this handled humorously and fluffy or played straight. I’d love to see what makes them hit it off and what kinds of books a unicorn would be into and what makes the librarian fall for them and, considering the ongoing perpetuation of the unicorn species, if the exception to the whole virgins-only rule is their own lover. I’d love to see some pining and being surprised at falling for the unicorn and the librarian learning about unicorns and the unicorn learning about humans and see their relationship develop.

Xeno Preferences: Okay, so fantasy creatures! I adore 1. shapeshifting, or 2. a reasonable extrapolation of the fantasy creature’s size/anatomy but just handwaved via possibly large but manageable genital size to not be incompatible, or 3. temporary magic resize to compatible where necessary. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I’ve said elsewhere about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Female Knife-Wielding Border Guard/Male Fire-Wielding Prince of Enemy Nation (F/M):

Enemies to lovers. Maybe the prince is injured and she takes care of him not knowing who he is. Maybe he rescues her from his own border guards during an altercation that started from a misunderstanding. Maybe he’s just been sneaking away from the oppressiveness of royal life and fell head over heels in love. I’d love to see the tension built in to the relationship come up either before she knows who he is or after she knows or right off, if it’s not hidden. I’d love to see how they work things out long term, even if it’s only hinted at. Also, would love to see fighting/sparring leads to sex. Or you know, practicing fighting with their very different weapons against each other. Or fire powers in sex.

Female Xenolinguist/Male Humanoid Alien of a Previously Undiscovered Species (F/M):

Okay, so I love language and linguistics and first contact and cultural differences and language barrier and learning about each other with absolutely no common ground to start with, and this is just like the combination of all of that. I’d love it if she’s really trained and competent at how to go about this, and he’s curious and interested and a friendly alien, and I’d love to see both of their perspectives as they get to know each other.

Maybe she’s representing some Federation-like governing body or was called in just because some trader had an oh wow encounter. I’d love to see them also negotiate how future contact’s going to go, while falling in love along the way. Feel free to incorporate space politics or worldbuilding alongside all those shippy moments too!

Alien Preferences: Okay, so aliens! I adore 1. humanoid, 2. shapeshifting, or 3. feathered or furry and preferably with wings, or you could also do 4. SF dragons or phoenixes or mermaids or the like. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I said above about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Changeling Who Stays with His Adoptive Family/Standoffish Fellow Mage Student (M/M); Grumpy Genius Human Magic Student with Wild Magic/Capricious Cinnamon Roll Fae Magic Student (M/M):

I adore the fae and would love to see just about any take on them you want to give. I do tend to love their capriciousness and wild inhuman nature and would love to see some of that inhumanness at work. I also love magic schools and competing kinds of magic and quiet, reserved, standoffish people getting love or getting drawn out in spite of themselves.

Maybe they’re roommates or are partnered up for a school assignment or get up to magic shenanigans in a school department rivalry and are thrown together as unlikely allies. Feel free to write whatever strikes your fancy. I’d love to see slow opening up and falling for each other by surprise. And pining obliviously. Or not so obliviously. Or mutual pining. I’d love to see personality differences or clashes and maybe bonding over both feeling a bit out of their element, if for different reasons. Also, competence kink.

Avatar of a Sentient Space Ship/Its Pilot (Other):

I love the idea of this super close working relationship where they both know exactly what they’re getting into and maybe they’ve been pining for a while. They get to kink on each other’s competence, fly space together!, yes, pls tell me more about space flight and the experience of it, adventure together (or do research or surveys or trade or whatever it is this space ship’s purpose is). I love the idea of human/spaceship interfaces or communicating with both the spaceship and the avatar, of multiple inputs for the spaceship, and multitasking ability that works our real well when they can juggle relationship time and work time simultaneously. I love ship POV and/or pilot POV.

Android/AI Avatar Preferences: I’d prefer humanoid with actual human appearance rather than a metallic one, but with a nonhuman personality that has all the advantages of being AI, in processing power or computation or instant search capabilities, etc. I also like AI that doesn’t want to be human. I like them to have feelings, though how that’s generated/interpreted/aligned with human feelings can vary wildly. For sex, I’m fine with them having human-like parts or doing robot-fiddling to induce pleasure (or taking advantage of superhuman strength for the human’s).

Avatar of Sentient Space Station/New Resident that Doesn’t Know It’s Sentient (Other); Spaceship AI with Holographic Manifestation/Pilot that Doesn’t Know They’re AI (Other):

I love the not knowingness here and eventually the reveal, especially if the spaceship/space station didn’t actually know the other person wasn’t aware they were the spaceship/space station. Though maybe they did figure it out along the way and were just super self conscious and worried about how to break it to their significant other. All the misunderstandings but also shippiness, romance, making everything perfect for their pilot/resident because they control the world essentially, or just figuring out what each other likes, getting to know humanity and human interests and their own preferences through getting to know this human.

Android/AI Avatar Preferences: I’d prefer humanoid with actual human appearance rather than a metallic one, but with a nonhuman personality that has all the advantages of being AI, in processing power or computation or instant search capabilities, etc. I also like AI that doesn’t want to be human. I like them to have feelings, though how that’s generated/interpreted/aligned with human feelings can vary wildly. For sex, I’m fine with them having human-like parts or doing robot-fiddling to induce pleasure (or taking advantage of superhuman strength for the human’s).

Sex Pollen Victim/Fellow Sex Pollen Victim He Tracks Down Afterwards to Woo (F/M); Sex Pollen Victim/Fellow Sex Pollen Victim He Tracks Down Afterwards to Woo (M/M):

Whether they’re the kind of character that is honor-driven and wants to go honorably woo their accidental sex partner or they just fell that head over heels in love, or both!, is fine with me. I’d love to see a more reluctant object of their suit, all kinds of potential life incompatibilities or this was not in the plans, but also genuine mutual attraction and successfully romantic gestures. I’d also love them to build a genuine connection and relationship rather than just shortcutting it through sex or it being about the inciting incident. I also wouldn’t mind seeing some negative comparison of some suitor or potential love interest to the fellow sex pollen victim on the part of the pursued.

Do their friends or family or coworkers have an opinion on this guy that came out of nowhere to romance them? Was it a private sex pollen incident or was it some massive thing with a ton of victims that everyone kinda knows about? Would prefer non-mundane setting and professions.

General Prompts with sex(iness):

first time sex, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, first kiss, wrist kisses, neck kisses, hair touching, what to do / reaction to the first confession, learning each other’s bodies and figuring out what works and doesn’t

Newly Recognized God of Modern Tech/Newly Appointed Priestess Expecting a New Traditional God (F/M):

So I’d love to see some development of what a traditional god is understood to be like and how the priestess expects this to go, and then she gets the modern version with his own ideas who is also very interested in her as a person. I’d love to see them get to know each other and what kind of ways he turns her understanding upside down while also falling in love. I’d love to see the rituals of her religion and how he does or doesn’t fit them or bend them to suit him better. I’d also love to see what kind of underlying nature of the gods your world has.

Sea Captain’s Daughter/Shapeshifting Sea Dragon who Killed her Sister in Self-Defense (F/M):

I absolutely love the idea of survival and necessity sometimes putting people at odds or giving them every reason to hate each other, but then they get thrown together in a way that turns that on its head. Maybe she ends up saving him when he’s been injured, even in spite of herself and wanting to hate him. Maybe she doesn’t know he can shapeshift and doesn’t realize at first she’s been falling for a dragon, let alone the one that killed her sister. I’d love to see them work through their issues and misunderstandings and also being seriously attracted to each other, all those oh no, they’re hot moments. What kinds of things can they connect on? Do they both love the sea and had hard childhoods and have had to live with a survival mindset? Maybe they’re really different but they’re attracted to the things they don’t share or want to have but don’t. I’d love to see whatever you come up with. And please feel free to include all the detailed descriptions of pretty dragons your heart desires.

Xeno Preferences: Okay, so fantasy creatures! I adore 1. shapeshifting, or 2. a reasonable extrapolation of the fantasy creature’s size/anatomy but just handwaved via possibly large but manageable genital size to not be incompatible, or 3. temporary magic resize to compatible where necessary. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I’ve said elsewhere about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Powerful Martial Artist/Warrior God Who Falls for Him (M/M):

I love seeing martial arts in fic, whether fighting in battle or sparring, and all the competence kink pls. And would love to see how this relationship works out. Maybe the god blesses this guy because he’s got a serious crush and doesn’t even reveal himself until after that’s been working out well for him. Maybe he wants to fight the guy and shows up in human form just to spar or fight with him and love him. Maybe he’s much more open about his pursuit as a god and points out how great the advantages of him being a god are to his intended lover, whether that backfires or works. Or you know, maybe we just see them being super hot and competent in war together and battle coupley and maybe possibly having sex in the aftermath of their absolutely destroyed enemies.

No Smut

I would love to see these ships get together but would rather not include sex scenes please. 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 learn to trust each other, overcome their own personal emotional difficulties, or just open up to another person.

Unwilling Experiments’ Vengeful Superhuman Daughter/Hero(ine) Who Thinks She’s a Villain (Other):

I personally do love the trope of human experimentation leads to superpowers and also that human experimentation is wrong and in this case, the daughter is the one going to make it right. I love family figuring into a main’s life and the inherent misunderstanding on the part of the hero or heroine that thinks the daughter is a villainess rather than the more complicated thing that she is. I’d love to see them encountering each other in their alter egos and as their regular lives. I’d love to see them get to know each other or slowly come to understand the reality of what’s going on and maybe help each other clean up the organization that experimented on her parents.

Hacker Genius/Human-Like Android She’s Salvaged and Restored (F/M):

So did I mention I love hackers and geniuses and hacker geniuses? I’d love to see this super competent woman fix up an android and then the developing relationship that ensues. Is the android grateful or standoffish for his own reasons? Are they stuck together because he doesn’t have ID or does he stick around willingly? I’d love to see them learning to trust each other and get to know each other. What happened to the android? Did she rescue him from something or someone that still wants to get their hands on him?

Snarky Sentient Space Ship/Equally Snarky Android Crew Member Who Prefers Nonhuman Company (Other):

I love space ships, I love androids, I love stories set in space, and would love to see a couple nonhumans uninterested in being human traveling the galaxy together with or without a full complement of humans along for the ride. Commiserating, communicating in nonhuman fashion, making full use of extra processing and computation abilities, and snarky banter please!

Shameless Feels

Smut, No Smut

I am shamelessly here for the feels. Feel free to include sex or not. If you do include sex, I prefer it to be consequential, with build-up and/or aftermath. These are all basically established relationship where there’s some weight to the loss or absence of each other or the potential loss. I’d love to really feel how much these people mean to each other.

General Prompts:

(love) letters to each other, flashbacks to precious memories, moments of sharing painful memories and just opening up to and trusting each other, little ways they know each other so well, communicating perfectly without words, saying I love you with actions, almost losing each other and the terrible tension but coming out together in the end

General Prompts with sex(iness):

comfort sex, I’ve missed you so much sex, long slow foreplay and desperate slow-building arousal, neck kisses, wrist kisses, knowing exactly how to please someone, body worship, cuddling, reunion kisses

Forgotten God of Destruction/The Woman He’d Do Anything to Protect (F/M):

I have a thing for overpowered characters and gods are as OP as it gets. Then you get OP people with their one chosen person and you basically have me at the word go. I’d love to see how they started this relationship. I’d love it whether or not she realizes he’s a god of destruction. Maybe she’s the one person that doesn’t see him as destruction personified and that’s part of why he loves her. What is he protecting her from? I’d love to see him use his power to save or care for her and be gentle and caring just for her.

And please feel free to show me something of their world and where this kind of relationship fits into that. Mostly though, I just really want the feels.

Mage Using Memory-Based Magic Gradually Losing Memory/Her Husband (F/M); Mage Using Memory-Based Magic Gradually Losing Memory/His Husband (M/M):

I’d love to see how they cope with this situation in their relationships, staving off the inevitable or extending the time before it’s untenable, trusting deeply and instinctually in spite of the memory loss, trying not to use magic. Is there a reason they have to continue to use it? Those moments when everything’s okay for a little while or they’re holding onto each other emotionally or remembering things or relearning them. Please end with them still happily together and that they’re with each other to the end.

Seafarer/Merman He Is Married To Who Is Unwilling or Unable to Live on Land (M/M); Deep Sea Fantasy Creature Unwilling to Live Onshore/Their Human Lover (Other):

Long-distance but genuine love. Missing each other. How did they meet each other and fall in love? How do they make their relationship work? Maybe five times they come to see each other and their beautiful moments of reunion and all they talk about and just drinking in each other in while they can.

Xeno Preferences: Okay, so fantasy creatures! I adore 1. shapeshifting, or 2. a reasonable extrapolation of the fantasy creature’s size/anatomy but just handwaved via possibly large but manageable genital size to not be incompatible, or 3. temporary magic resize to compatible where necessary. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I’ve said elsewhere about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Shameless Smut

Smut

It’s kink all the way down. I’m here for the kinks, some of which is in the sexy bits and some of which isn’t quite.

Male Scientist Unaware of Merfolk/Mermaid Who Lays Her Egg in Him While He’s Sleeping (F/M):

Somnophilia, oviposition that is an overwhelming very slow-moving fit and also leaves him very pregnant and she’s not exactly up on English and is doing exactly what comes natural to her and would leave any merman quite happy. The shock, the fallout, and very much the waking up without anything to do about the massive unavoidable, unstoppable arousal and the egg that’s getting laid.

Xeno Preferences: Okay, so fantasy creatures! I adore 1. shapeshifting, or 2. a reasonable extrapolation of the fantasy creature’s size/anatomy but just handwaved via possibly large but manageable genital size to not be incompatible, or 3. temporary magic resize to compatible where necessary. I’m fine with xeno sex or it being humanoid enough that it’s just exotic, though I’d prefer relatively straightforward cocks/ovipositors without barbs or tentacles. I prefer overwhelming to outright painful. Everything I’ve said elsewhere about exploring or learning each other’s bodies still applies.

Big Brother Figure Martial Artist Mentor/Physically Stronger but Younger Brother Figure (M/M):

So love fighting leads to sex or just arousal and attraction and heavy interest while sparring and fighting and teaching someone how to fight better and improve their weaknesses and pinning people to walls and floors and one being smarter and more experienced at fighting and the other being stronger and exceptionally talented. The competence kink, the admiration, the mentorship bleeding over into sex and overwhelming the younger guy with the new experience and still kind of taking that teaching/big brother role there.

Female High School Student/Male Student Assigned Partner & Teacher of Hands on Sex Ed; Omega in 1st Heat/Alpha in 1st Rut & Kindly Old Man in Charge of Breeding:

Teaching two newbies how to have sex and do it right. I like it where there’s praising and hands on or more technical, verbal only, dispassionate teaching and the two newbies are overwhelmed but this is how you do this and it may be dubcon but for them, it’s just expected.

A/B/O Preferences: I would prefer no young teens for this request. I like worldbuilding that allows for alpha males and females, though I’d prefer if alpha females can still get pregnant (and would use protection in this case, though none of that has to be mentioned in fic) and don’t have actual cocks. Please mind the DNWs re: fluids in sex. I love heat/rut sex for the extra desperation, for the enforced cuddling afterward (whether awkward or wonderful), and love possessive instincts and really liking the way each other smells. I like the idea of personality being stronger than any instinctual dominance / submission and that just being a flavor on their own temperament.

Teenage Alpha in First Rut/Medical Professional Omega on Their Family’s Insurance (Other); Teenage Omega in First Heat/Medical Professional Alpha on their Family’s Insurance (Other):

If everyone has to go through heat/rut and it’s medically important to have a partner through it (work with me here), then stands to reason there would be a medical system for providing one. And that caretaking and being professional about it but just getting this absolute new-to-this, totally overwhelmed person through the experience.

A/B/O Preferences: I would prefer no young teens for this request. I like worldbuilding that allows for alpha males and females, though I’d prefer if alpha females can still get pregnant (and would use protection in this case, though none of that has to be mentioned in fic) and don’t have actual cocks.

Family Feels

People with complicated family relationships, who just want love and belonging and acceptance and find it fraught to receive it, found family who choose each other with or without realizing it. I LOVE family feels.

Smut, No Smut

Please keep any sex scenes in between the / ships. I like sex scenes to involve characterization and have build-up and/or aftermath and consequences. Feel free to include them or skip them.

Female Prophet/Male Superhuman Harbinger of Apocalypse & His Worried Father/His Scared-of-Him Mother; Superhumans Hunter/Male Superhuman Harbinger of Apocalypse & His Worried Father/Scared-of-Him Mother:

So there’s fraught backstory with the family and then there’s just fraught story with the family, and that’s more of what I’m hoping for. Being the harbinger of the apocalypse is a tough spot to be in and it doesn’t make him less of a person who still deserves familial love.

I’d love to see that family relationship be a big part of his life. I’d love to see the kind of person who’d fall in love with him and stick with him in spite of whatever terrible future she sees or being a person responsible to try to stop the apocalypse. I’d love to see complex roles interact and angst and yet, love being deemed more important in the end. If they can save the world while they’re at it, great. If not… well, I’m good with a happy ending meaning they’re together ’til the end.

No Smut

F!Cop/F!Researcher Campers & Fluffy Alien Baby Stowaway who adopts them as its moms:

I absolutely love the idea of this pair of competent, intelligent women going camping and coming home with a baby. A very cute, very opinionated baby who definitely was the adopting party in this scenario. Cuteness! Shenanigans! Figuring out that they’ve acquired a stowaway in the first place. Figuring out that the baby is alone and actually really needs someone. Warm fuzzies, cuddling, stealing their snacks before figuring out they’re just awesome and should be his mothers now.

Ancient Dragon & Adopted Human Kid Finally Sent to School as a Teen & Classmates (Gen):

I’d love to see both a really close familial relationship between the dragon and teen and also you know, teenager being teenager and trying to figure out how to fit in as a human for the first time in their memory. I’d love backstory and making friends and reconciling that yes, they love their parent and their parent is awesome despite all the awkwardness of not being a dragon themselves.

Also, dragons. Being awesome. And ancient. Feel free to slather in gratuitous dragonish personality, instincts, powers, and protectiveness and any kind of relevant fantasy tropes you like.

Forgotten God of Destruction & Little Girl He’d Do Anything to Protect (Gen); Physically Tiny Child & Ancient Powerful Demigod Summoned to Save Child’s People (Gen); Surly Female Badass & Young Male Ward (Gen); Surly Male Badass & Young Female Ward (Gen):

I have a thing for overpowered characters and gods are as OP as it gets. Then you get OP people with their one tiny human they love and will destroy the whole world to protect (or save the whole world to protect, but it’s about this one person, not the world), and I am there with bells on. Just this mutual love and trust and loyalty and protectiveness and care in the face of anything.

Basically, add surly personality and less godlike divine powers OP and yes, the exact same thing.

Fluffy Humor

Smut, No Smut

The adults may have sex if they like (and I will enjoy it! please just let it be absolutely full of personality), but I am 100% here for the fluff, the humor, the drama, and annoying their poor mentee.

Hypercompetent Space Wizard/Hypercompetent Planetary Wizard & Their Put-Upon Chosen One Mentee:

Hijinks! Somebody once called jedis space wizards and then it just stuck in my head how a wizard that’s usually on a planet (interpret at will please, I adore basically any kind of magic or magic system you want to invent) vs. a “space wizard” might think somewhat less of each other’s specialties than is justified. But they are both super competent and powerful and stuck together trying to save the world while tug-of-warring their poor adopted chosen one who has to put up with them and isn’t sure saving the world is worth it. Really, have fun; interpret at will; you can’t go wrong.

No Smut

Chosen One Princess/Her Rival Suitor Knight & the Dragon Who Remembers They’re on a Quest:

I am fond of longsuffering folks who remember the point of this journey is to do the quest or save the world or something other than flirt and banter and bicker and prove which of you can wield that sword better. I just want to see all the unwilling third wheeling while the two swear they’re rivals and the dragon saves the day with a little help from the lovebirds.

Female Superhuman Working at a Temp Agency for Nonheroic Jobs & Her Clients (Gen):

I love superhuman abilities and superhumans that aren’t about heroics. I mean, these powers would be super useful for ordinary life and various “ordinary” jobs and I would just absolutely love to see superpowers solving real world minor problems in slice of life fluffy humor.

Master Swordsman & Magic Sword that Takes King Choosing Very Seriously (Gen):

He’s a swordsman, a wonderful honorable swordsman, and he’s not entirely sure why this sword thinks he’s a king and they do not agree, but he needs a sword for {insert super important and unavoidable reason here}, so they shall carry forth together until one of them wins this argument. I love honorable swordsmen characters and I love magical items with opinions, and I’d love to see whatever you want to do with them.

Heist Fic

Fantasy science fiction master thieves! I adore a good heist and love to see the intricacies of a plan coming together, or seeing it hinted at with the true unfolding only coming clear at the end. The hijinks when things go wrong and how they work their way out of a scrape is often just as fun as when everything goes the way one hoped. Just bring on the competence please! And the fantastic elements and something that may or may not want to be stolen.

Smut, No Smut

Male Genius Hacker/Female Master Thief & the Sentient Spaceship They Want to Steal:

I love sentient spaceships with an attitude and a personality and their own ways of making it quite clear what they think about some interlopers “genius” ideas. I also really love genius, hacking (however magical or realistic), and master thieves. I just want to see these three personalities clash and make fireworks and also make free! Whether that means also escaping someone who hired them to steal said ship.

Feel free to have the thieving couple makeout or have sex or refrain. After all, the walls are watching and highly opinionated.

No Smut

Master Thief Specializing in Sweet Talking Sentient Artifacts & Sentient Magic Sword (Gen):

I just really want to see this master thief trying to talk a magic sword into their hands and out of whoever’s currently holding it and it being hard work and requiring every skill he or she’s got.

World & Character

No Smut

Worldbuilding! I love worldbuilding. I love chaos magic or law-based magic. I love science fiction, hard or soft or utterly fantastical. I love seeing details and how things work together and how things affect everyday life and I will read a school lesson or excerpt of a manual digging into this stuff and be a happy camper.

I ADORE characters that grow up naturally in their worldbuilding, seeing how their world shapes them and they shape their world. I love seeing how they interact and think and grow and change.

This set of prompts, I do not need plot, I do not need action, and I just want to love your characters and world, please and thank you!

Candidate Gods in Training & the Strict God Who Hides How He Dotes on Them (Gen):

I love the idea of figuring out where gods come from in a fantasy world and what makes them who they are, the nature of divinity, what makes a good god or a major one vs. a minor one, and I love the idea of candidate gods and what do they need to do to make it and I always adore strict but actually doting teacher/mentor figures. Please go as detailed as you like. I will be very happy.

Female Founder of Magical Technology System & Her Female Dragon Companion and Librarian (Gen):

Books, dragons, magic tech, brilliant innovation, and friendship— Please, yes, and thank you. Really, I want to know everything you want to write about magical technology, magical libraries, and/or their human-dragon relationship. Warm fuzzies, deep technical terms or fuzzier ones, what things do and how they work and how they’re documented, and how these two work together. May I suggest flavorful additions of tea, cats, and fireplaces.

Hypercompetent Human Female “Spaceship Doctor” & Her Sentient Spaceship Clients (Gen); Hypercompetent Human Male “Android Doctor” & His Android Clients (Gen):

Competent people working with artificial intelligence clients, treating them like people, solving their repair problems, and just framing it as this beloved doctor and seeing the relationships. I’m hoping for slice of life and a huge focus on seeing the kinds of characters and problems that come together in this world and I will adore you for anything on this.

Marine Biologist & Deep Sea Mermaids (Gen); Female First Zoologist and Anthropologist to Study Dragons & Dragon Clan (Gen):

I love, love, love anything “studying” any kind of fantasy life and would love to see a piece about this biologist’s relationship to mermaids or the difference between deep sea mermaids vs. freshwater mermaids, her relationship with them as a people, and what kind of person devotes her life to studying them. Alternatively, the same with dragons. You can take a pure scientific view or also focus more on their relationship as people and studying the social structures of dragon society and culture as well.

Rival Magic Department Students at Futuristic School & Rival Science Tech Department Students (Gen); Forger of Magical Artifacts & Inventor of Dangerous Scientific Gadgets (Gen):

Rivalries! Competitions! Exhibitions! Student projects that pair up kids from each department. Work situations that pair up the forger and inventor. Both sides doing the same thing with science and technology or with magic. Someone combining the fields and getting dirty looks from both sides. Escalating statement pieces. Forbidden friendships and semi-alliances. Really, go to town. I’m eager to just see dangerous innovation, brilliance, competence kink, and crazy, ill-advised shenanigans. And hints of the spectacular fallout.

Solo: Brilliant Female Scientist Let Loose in a Magical World Successfully Studying Magic as Science:

Let it be said, I love the line where science and magic blurs, where if you look at it differently, you can still grasp the underlying principles, just in a different framework. And I adore the idea of letting a scientist loose on fairyland or some magical world and just letting her go to town. Show me her work or show me her at work or show me both! Does she have helpers? Antagonists? Fellow magic-oriented scholars that sniff at her work until she starts blowing them out of the water or giving new insights they must grudgingly acknowledge? Just anything you think of, I’m game for here.

Solo: Female Dragon Who is a Dragon Historian:

So I love dragons, I love fantasy histories, I love scholarly intelligent characters, and I actually loving seeing research at work in fiction. I’d love to see her trying to unearth or examine or write down facts of their history, whether that’s in-universe writing or a story about her directly. You cannot go wrong with this basically.

Solo: Person Raised as a Living Weapon Learning to Human:

Basically my favorite kind of character ever is one that was raised to weapon but not to human and then encounters either an opportunity or a friendship or some kind of love for the first time or gains their freedom in a way that allows them to start exploring being human and figuring out who they are, what they like, what they can do. I love the angst of their backstory and regrets, the figuring out their own identity, the struggles with figuring out their own humanity, and the forming connections with mentor figures, friends, people they can take care of. Really, please just go to town with this. It is basically my favorite character type/arc ever.
