So this is turning into a yearly thing, apparently. Christmas comment!fics for all you lovely folk in fandom! I’m experimenting with the timeline this year, so this post is going up a bit later than previous years. For those who’ve been here before, do check the updated list of fandoms, and the time that prompt-taking closes. For those who haven’t, let’s go over things:
How it works:
I’m taking prompts for ficlets in any of the fandoms listed below. Please have a look at what I will/won’t write for each fandom before making your requests.
Leave a comment in this post with the fandom, pairing (if applicable; I’ll do gen for all fandoms too) and the prompt you’d like.
Prompts can be anything from random words for inspiration, to a scenario you’d like to see played out. They can be as specific or general as you like, and I’ll do my best to stick to them. Alternate universe/alternate canon prompts are welcome, as are prompts to do with any ‘verse I’ve written about before (i.e. it's fine to ask for something based on one of my previously posted fics).
ONE PROMPT per comment. Multiple prompts are fine, but put each in its own comment. Your first prompt gets ficced first; the others will go to the end of the queue and I’ll get back to them after I’m done with prompts from other people. So put the one you most want to see done first!
Prompts don’t have to be Christmas/holiday-related, if that’s not your thing. Anything goes!
Porn and I have a love-hate relationship. Sometimes it comes easy; other times, it's hard. (Pun not intended.) Be warned that if you request smut, you may not actually get it – I can give you the prelude and possibly some sexiness, but that might be the best I'll manage.
Prompt-taking closes at midnight on 31st December where I am – that’s UTC+8. Do note that I won’t be taking any prompts after the stated deadline. Due to Reasons, I’ll likely be slower in posting up my comment!fics, but look for them in the first couple of weeks of the new year.
I will NOT write:
Character death (except as in canon).
Anything dark/unpleasant. It’s Christmas; let’s keep it happy in here. (This does not mean I won’t take sad/bittersweet/etc prompts – those are fine, but I won’t write, say, a character’s murderous rampage through London.)
Some fandoms also have a specific listing for things I won’t write (don’t break up my fandom OTPs please), so pay attention!
A slash denotes a pairing (e.g. Jack/Ianto), whereas a plus sign denotes friendship (e.g. Ianto+Tosh).
The latter doesn’t mean you can’t request friendship fics between people I haven’t listed; it just means that I’m particularly comfortable writing those two.
Simple enough, yes? Here are the fandoms I can write for, in alphabetical order:
CAVEAT: I skipped a lot of the Aizen/Arrancar/Visored stuff because I got bored with the endless fighting. I know the gist of what happened, but if you’re requesting something based on a specific moment, give me chapter numbers at the least.
I’m better at these guys than I used to be, though, so don’t take previous works as proof of (non-)talent.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Ichigo/Byakuya, Urahara, Rukia, Orihime, Shinigami ensemble (not as familiar with the Visored and Arrancar though)
I WON’T WRITE: If you request a scenario I don’t know and am not comfortable with, I might ask you a) if I can write something only tangentially related to the idea you’ve put forth, or b) to give me another prompt.
CAVEAT: It’s been ages since I’ve written in this fandom, so any old fics you might have read are vastly out of date with my style now. … You might actually get better fics now than I used to write.
I much prefer writing friendship/gen to anything with pairings.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: The list is actually kind of endless, especially when it comes to pairing Harry up.
I WON’T WRITE: Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Severus/Remus, Sirius/Remus. I would prefer not to write Draco at all.
Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike!:
CAVEAT: While I know the gist of the entire storyline, I’ve only read the scanlations up to Volume 15. I’ve not written extensively in this fandom, and what I do have, I haven’t posted. I think I’ve got a decently good grasp on the characters though, at least up to Vol. 15.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Kiyomine/Takara, ensemble cast
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Kiyomine or Takara up with others. Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
Kyou Kara Maoh!:
CAVEAT: I didn’t watch S3 and didn’t finish S2, though I do know how it ends. I’m terrible at keeping track of the ensemble cast, so sticking to the major players is best.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Conrad/Yuuri, Gwendal, Gunter, possibly Wolfram and Cecilie. Pick anyone else at your own risk – I’m not quite comfortable writing anyone outside of these I’ve listed.
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Conrad or Yuuri up with others (I’m fine with acknowledging the Wolfram/Yuuri engagement, but not as a serious pairing). Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
Anything with Shinou, because I can’t quite wrap my writerly brain around him yet.
CAVEAT: I know the gist of what’s been happening, but I’ve only been reading sporadically since Kakashi’s resurrection. If you want something to do with a specific incident, give me details (at least chapter numbers so I can look it up).
I prefer to write post-time-skip for anything with pairings (outside of canon crushes). If it’s gen, go ahead and request any time-frame. I’m most familiar with the Konoha characters and the Sand siblings, so request anyone else at your own risk. Also, it’s been ages since I’ve written in this fandom, but I think I’ve got an okay grasp on them.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Naruto/Kakashi, Naruto/Sakura (post-time-skip), Naruto+Kakashi+Sakura, Naruto+Tsunade
I WON’T WRITE: Naruto/Sasuke. Anything with post-betrayal Sasuke (I’d prefer to avoid writing Sasuke altogether).
Prince of Tennis:
CAVEAT: Only Seigaku members, please. I’m not really familiar with the other schools. Also, I have a tendency to ignore both the manga and anime endings because they both get ridiculous, so feel free to request something set in an AUish ending. I don’t know anything about the second manga series either, so I can’t write anything about that.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Tezuka/Ryoma, ensemble cast.
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Tezuka or Ryoma up with others. Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
CAVEAT: I’ve not written extensively in this fandom, though I think my grasp on the characters has improved a little from the few I’ve posted. Still, request at your own risk.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Jim/Blair, ensemble cast
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Jim or Blair up with others. Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
CAVEAT: … Yeah, I got nothing.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: John/Sherlock, ensemble cast
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing John or Sherlock up with others. Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
Moriarty. Or Irene. Sorry, not interested.
Star Trek (TOS/2009):
CAVEAT: I’ve not written extensively in either fandom, and none of what I’ve written is posted online. Request at your own risk.
Specify if you want TOS or 2009!
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Kirk/Spock, Bones+Kirk+Spock, ensemble cast
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Kirk or Spock up with others. Go ahead and mix and match anyone else if you’d like.
CAVEAT: I didn’t like S3, and didn’t watch S4. Stick to the first two seasons; I won’t be able to do anything from S3/4.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Jack/Ianto, Ianto/Lisa (pre-Canary Wharf only), Ianto+Tosh, team, Rhys
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Jack or Ianto up with others (other than pre-Jack Ianto/Lisa). You can mix and match anyone else, and I’ll give it a shot, though.
CAVEAT: I haven’t posted anything I’ve written in this fandom, so you’re requesting at your own risk. Also, I’m not doing anything based on speculation/teasers about the upcoming series.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Billy/Teddy, Kate, Eli, Tommy, Cassie, Nate
I WON’T WRITE: Anything pairing Billy or Teddy up with others. You can mix and match anyone else, and I’ll give it a shot, though.
And have a happy new year, everyone!
ETA: Prompt-taking is now closed.
ETA 2: Done! Thanks for playing, everyone!
