Dear Spacer,

Thanks, first of all, for writing! That is really the most important thing, and I will be delighted with whatever I wind up getting. I'm following my usual practice of cribbing heavily from other older letters, so hopefully it will retain some amount of coherency.

So first of all.... Generally speaking, I like stories that tell me a little bit more about the characters or the world they live in. I like stories with plot - with adventure, intrigue, and wacky hijinks. I also like stories that are more focused on character exploration – I don't need action if I have interesting introspection. I like both insider and outsider PoV stuff, and I feel like it is perfectly legit to write a story about a character that isn't from their perspective. I enjoy stories that are very emotionally intense, whether that means they are spilling over with ~feels~ or dark and unrelenting in tone – I enjoy horror, especially psychological horror, but also feel-good fluff.

I am definitely up for explicit stories for any of the requested "/" pairings! I don't have a list of specific squicks - I'm pretty open to stuff, and the delivery is really what's important. More than anything, when it comes (heh) to porn I want to be able to believe that the sex I'm reading is in character for whoever I'm reading about – not necessarily that it is something they want, but that the reactions I'm reading are true to whoever is having them, if that makes any sense. As for kinks, I like power dynamics, negotiation, all levels of consent (enthusiastic consent, ambiguous consent, dubcon, noncon), all kinds of sex (vaginal, anal, oral, intercrural, frottage, clothed, semiclothed, public, whatever!) knifeplay, breathplay, bdsm, blood, loyalty, kissing...a million other things I'm probably not thinking of. Basically, this is me.

As far as art goes, I should also note that I am interested in a variety of body shapes/sizes/colours, and I am also interested in symbolic representation and stylized art as well as more representational perspectives, as long as the requested characters are in some way identifiable in the piece.

I've never requested a vid before, so I am really curious as to what you might be able to do with these requests - I'm sorry if they aren't helpful, but anything that demonstrates or highlights or reveals aspects of characters or relationships would be cool! Totally down for crack here, also.

And now to the specifics!

Voltron: Legendary Defender
Fanart, Fanfiction, Fanvid, Podfic
Requests: Relationship: Sendak/Shiro (Voltron); Relationship: Haggar & Shiro (Voltron); Worldbuilding: Legends about Voltron; Relationship: Voltron & Lions; Worldbuilding: Blade of Marmora; Character: Thace (Voltron) Relationship: Haggar/Zarkon (Voltron); Character: Shiro; Relationship: Shiro/Ulaz; Character: Haggar (Voltron); Worldbuilding: Origin of the Lions

I think I can break my requests down into three sections here:
1. Shiro's time as a captive - what were his relationships like with the people who had power over him? I'm really interested in the tension between the persona he built as the 'champion' and his true self, and how and why those lines may have ever blurred. Did the Galra know it was all an act, and how/why did they work with that? Why did they give Shiro a new arm? How did he lose it - or did they just replace a perfectly good arm with a better one? What made Ulaz decide to take a chance on Shiro? Why did he think he could be trusted?

2. Galra empire - I'm very interested in the Blade - how they came to be, whether there were precursors, how they managed to organize at all, how are they so badass. And then Thace, of course - how and why he joined, what it is like to be that deep undercover. And then form the other side - I am very interest in the relationship between Zarkon and Haggar - she's incredibly useful, and Zarkon gives her a lot of power. And she goes pretty far to support him as well. Why? How did she wind up with him? What are her goals? Where did she come from? How old is she - has she been around from the beginning? Does she predate Zarkon's rise to power? Or did she come to him sometime more recently in the past 10000 years? Did she form the druids or do they predate her as well? Are any of them Galran?

3. Tell me more about Volton! People still seem to know about Voltron even though it has been a really long damned time since it was active. How did those stories persist? Did Zarkon's obsession help? What sorts of stories do people have? They don't have to be actually true, mind! I'm also curious about the, um, metaphysics, I guess, of Voltron, especially afte the end of last season. The lions are capable of a fair amount of independent thought and action - what are their relationships to each other, and to Voltron? To what degree are they sentient? To what degree is Voltron itself an independent entity? What does the bonding process between lions and paladins mean? What's its impact on Voltron? Do the lions actually all share an origin or not? If the black lion came first, did it influence the creation of the others and the inception of Voltron? So many questions! I'd love some speculation!

Cthulhu Mythos - Fandom
Fanart, Fanfiction, Podfic
Requests: Character: Original Character

All the mythos stuff is space-based in one way or another - the monsters are aliens. I'd love to see a story exploring their impact on alien cultures, or else maybe something looking at how else these extra-planar/extra terrestrial beings could impact a future of space exploration. Space cultists? Humans become an unexpected player in some greater cosmic conflict? Or pawns? I think you could do something interesting with mythos aliens in the past as well (there's a lot of talk about that sort of thing in mythos background - early earth as a battleground, and such), or how they might impact a less technologically advance alien society. Obviously since this is space swap, the space/sci-fi elements should be pretty prominent!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types
Fanart, Fanfiction, Fanvid, Podfic
Requests: Relationship: Obi-Wan Kenobi/Satine Kryze; Character: Kit Fisto; Character: Hondo Ohnaka

I am very curious about the time Obi-Wan and Satine spent together when they were younger, so anything with them from that period would be lovely! We know a little bit of what younger Obi-Wan was like, all young and serious..... that plus Satine being awesome + hormones = yes please! And Qui-Gon in the background quietly shaking his head and/or smiling...

The other two characters I nommed were my favourite minor characters from the series, and I'd love to see more of their adventures (with the caveat that I really only know them from the show - please feel free to draw on other material if you like, but I probably won't realize what you are doing!) Kit Fisto has one of the most ridiculous names in Star Wars, but he's pretty rad. More underwater adventures? I love how mercurial Hando is in his moods and loyalties - best space pirate.

Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies)
Fanart, Fanfiction, Fanvid, Podfic
Requests: Relationship: Ayel & Nero (Star Trek); Character: Nero (Star Trek); Character: Ayel (Star Trek); Worldbuilding: Romulan Empire

I am very much here for some Romulans! I am a big fan of Diane Duane's Rihannsu books, and I appreciate anything that incorporates the worldbuilding and history from those mashed up with the AOS Romulans, especially since I know the writers drew some on them as well. I'd love backstory for Nero and/or Ayel - how did they meet, how did they get along work together before and after Romulus was destroyed. Anything that fills in some of the time between when they showed up and when Spock arrived would also be great! I have read the Countdown comics if that is helpful.
