First of all - hello! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading and/or seeing it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy writing; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!
I love angst. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. Angsty art is also amazing, though! I have to say that, while I adore dark pieces in general, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid) and crossovers (except for maybe a Narcissa Malfoy / Catelyn Stark or Druella Black meeting TV!Morticia Addams fic because those would be amazing, even though unfortunately the Druella and Morticia one won't be too applicable for Shipswap), nor do I like very fluffy fluff in the written word a lot. It doesn't have to be all darkness, destruction and gloom (unless you want it to be!), but 100% fluff is not something I particularly enjoy reading. Looking at it is great, though, I love adorable fluffy artwork! I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.
Addams Family (1964)
Oh my God, I adore those two so much it's not even funny anymore. Morticia and Gomez' relationship is so beyond perfect and beautiful and amazing and it just gives me so many feels! (Which I pretty much say about all my OTPs, but it's true!) The series is delightfully fluffy despite the built in gloom and morbidity (which really doesn't appear morbid at all to them and it's just so cute) but there actually have been a couple episodes that had pretty good potential for angst; I would adore an angsty and feelsy Tish/Gomez fic more than anything, ngl!
As I mentioned before, I will be happy with absolutely anything you choose to create, but I would ask you to stick to TV Show canon and characterisations; I'm not particularly fond of the movies and of what they do with Morticia and Gomez (they have their charm too and their relationship is great as well, but not as the Morticia and Gomez that were introduced to us in the TV Show), so all my love fully focuses on the TV Show characters.
The Mummy Returns
One pairing I have come to ship fiercely, forgotten about for a while and re-discovered with doubled intensity, are Evelyn and Rick O'Connell. I don't really have too much to say about them except that I turn into a giant bundle of feels when I think of them and that an Evie!centric (or Evie!POV) fic would be amazing. I specifically picked The Mummy Returns for the fandom, since it is my favourite movie in the series
Narcissa/Lucius, Druella/Cygnus, Narcissa/Andromeda, Andromeda/Ted
I have two major OTPs in the series: Narcissa/Lucius and Druella/Cygnus. There are no words for how much I adore them; Druella/Cygnus is entirely based on my very, very elaborate headcanon that I will not mention any further, because if you choose to create a piece focusing on them, I want you to be as un-biased as possible! All I will say is that I believe them - Druella and Cygnus - to be connected by an incredibly strong, special and unbreakable bond, and I am convinced that they love each other deeply, fiercely and unconditionally! The same counts for Lucius and Narcissa as well, but I believe that their bond is not as special as Druella/Cygnus' which of course will not make their love any less. Generally, all I will ask of you is not to make Cygnus an abusive husband and/or father - I've always pictured him to be very loving and peaceful! (Whether he is successful at showing it is of course up to you, but please absolutely no abuse on his side.)
I also ship Andromeda and Ted a lot because she gave up so much for him and just followed him into this completely new life strange to her probably full of excitement and terror at the same time; I do not want to bias you at all, so whatever you choose to go with will be absolutely great!
A Song Of Ice And Fire
Another major OTP of mine Are Catelyn/Ned, in the books as well as the show. They are such a beautiful, such a beautifully tragic couple and they give me so many feels. There is so much unsaid about them - what did they think of each other when they first met and learned they were going to be husband and wife, wen and how did they come to love each other, were there any more tragedies they suffered together before everything went south, how did Cat cope with the loss of Ned off-screen? How would Ned have coped if he had lost Cat? There are a thousand possibilities about them, so many things to explore because we never got to see enough of them together and their intense love, their unbreakable bond that I am convinced they forged over time.
Thank you so much for creating for me in advance, and as I said, what- and whoever you choose to go with, I will surely love it! ♥
