dear darkest night creator

Dear Darkest Night Exchange Creator!

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!

This would usually be the point where I once again declare my eternal love to angst - but looking at the nature of this exchange, I don't think that I need to mention it. I will say, however, that I am not a friend of extremes, most of all the graphic ones. For example: Torture is not necessarily a squick/trigger of mine, I think in certain fandoms I even requested it, mentions of blood are all right as well, but as soon as it turns heavily graphic I'm out. PLEASE, if you choose to write/create something related to this, refrain from things such as mutilation, and other very graphic and extreme things. The same counts for kinks - please no heavy kinks such as PWP or m-preg, either! I am also no true fan of crossovers, but otherwise I am open for many things!

It was pretty difficult for me to pick only twenty additional tags per fandom, but I put great thought into choosing them - more detail in the respective fandom categories, though! If you find that you'd like to add something else to your piece, here is a list of my favourite additional tags that just did not make it into my official requests because I ran out of space.

24 hours left to live, abandonment, abuse, alcohol abuse, amnesia, anorexia, anxiety, attempted rape, bad ending, beating, betrayal, blackmail, character death, character is dead and doesn’t know it, chronic pain, depression, despair, drug addiction, dysfunctional family, eating disorders, emotional hurt, emotional manipulation, enduring pain to protect another, euthanasia, ghosts, grief/mourning, guilt, haunting, hearing voices, imprisonment, incest, insanity, jealousy, loneliness, loss of control , loss of senses, major character injury, major illness, medical trauma, memory loss, mental breakdown , mental health issues, mercy killing, nightmares, not happy, obsession, pain, permanent injury, poison, post-traumatic stress disorder, presumed death, psychological thriller, psychological torture, psychological trauma, rape, rape aftermath, rape and recovery, rape recovery, recovery process after torture, self-harm, self-hatred, self-sacrifice, suicidal thoughts, suicide, suicide attempt, torture, war


Harry Potter
Characters: Narcissa Malfoy, Andromeda Tonks, Druella Black, Cygnus Black
Ships: Narcissa/Lucius, Druella/Cygnus, Narcissa/Andromeda

Narcissa/Lucius and Druella/Cygnus are my two true and ultimate OTPs in all of Harry Potter - of course Druella and Cygnus are entirely based on my headcanon, but I will not share parts of it here because, if you choose to write/draw them for me, I would love for your own thoughts and your very own headcanons for them to be involved! I am also very fascinated by Narcissa/Andromeda - I've always pictured the sisters to be incredibly close, sometimes closer than just sisters... That is enough said, anything else is entirely up to you - but what all of my ships have in common is that they adore each other, that they all share a strong bond of love that cannot be torn apart. Family dynamics would also be absolutely fascinating!

One thing I ask of you: Please don't make either Cygnus or Lucius abusive - I have always pictured them as most loving fathers and husbands, troubled, of course, but never abusive in any way or form towards their women. Abuse is amongst the requests, I know, but there are other ways to execute it, not through the couples/family themselves!

For Harry Potter (and generally most of these fandoms), the tags I picked are more focused on illnesses and injuries, physical and mental. How would the characters cope with a terminal illness/injury, or with being haunted by images of war? What would Lucius do, if his wife were torn apart by self-hatred? There are so many options! Also for self-sacrifice, for enduring pain for each other's protection... Go wild!

Characters: Catelyn Stark, Ned Stark, Lady Stoneheart
Ships: Catelyn/Ned

Catelyn has always been my favourite character in both books and show - I devoured her chapters, and her moments on screen, and honestly, I still miss her. Catelyn/Ned is one of my only ships and my true OTP, also in both book and show. When it comes to Lady Stoneheart - I find her to be an utterly tragic and no less fascinating character... To see what has become of mostly-gentle Catelyn, what the war has done to her, what death has done to her... There are SO many possibilities to explore!

My additional tag requests are pretty similar to those in the Harry Potter section - a lot of emotional anguish, self-sacrifice and other things related to that. I think it's all pretty self-explanatory in the end... Again, pick whatever strikes your fancy, I am sure that it will be absolutely amazing.

Addams Family (1964)
Characters: Morticia Addams, Gomez Addams
Ships: Morticia/Gomez

The characters should be quite clear there - there is NOTHING that goes over the beautiful love that Morticia and Gomez share! If you want to create a gen-piece: All perfectly fine with me! But I'd rather you focus on Morticia there, since I have always been so incredibly fascinated by her... If you choose to go with Addams Family, I'd ask you to please stick to the 1964 canon - I've never really gotten into any other portrayals.

My requests here are also rather focused on illnesses and relatable things. I could see Morticia rather than Gomez fall ill, whether physically or mentally, and I can see a lot of options for lots of very emotional things there! Morticia has always been the voice of reason in the show, so it would be extra fascinating to me to explore what happened if her senses, her body, or both failed her... Or if she merely had twenty-four hours to live, if she succumbed to alcohol or other substances... Who knows! There are so many things to look into.

Memoirs Of A Geisha
Characters: Mameha, Hatsumomo
Ships: N/A, mostly. I do have an odd fascination for Mameha/Baron, though. If you can get me into Mameha/Hatsumomo - even better!

Mameha is BY FAR my favourite character there, and I could see so many things of my requested tags to happen there - same with Hatsumomo, because we already know that she has so many problems in canon... I was hesitant to name a ship for this fandom, but Mameha's denial of her love for the Baron has always fascinated me so much - he is a terrible man, highly likely also abusive, but somehow... Somehow she's in love with him, and somehow she grieves him when he dies.

The world of geisha is incredibly cruel, with so much pressure... So what if Mameha (or Hatsumomo?) breaks beneath it? What if she loses her mind, what if her body fails her, what if the Baron's (or someone else's) abuse becomes unbearable, or she almost starves herself to death for her profession? Again, so many options, so many things to explore... I couldn't even list them all, but those are - just like in the other sections - simply suggestions!

Cracks (2009)
Characters: Miss G, Di
Ships: Miss G/Di

Miss G is such an INCREDIBLY fascinating character. There is so much obsession in her, the entire movie nearly EXPLODES with obsession, with tension, and Di is actually so very similar to her former idol. The tags there are pretty much self-explanatory, both Miss G and Di are broken, Miss G more, Di less... Whatever strikes your fancy there, I am absolutely thrilled to read/see it.

I've also read the book, but in that case, I way prefer the movie - Eva Green and Juno Temple are sheer perfection, and I couldn't imagine Miss G and Di being any different than they were in this amazing movie.

Thank you so very much for creating for me in advance, and as I said, what- and whoever you choose to go with, I will surely love it! ♥
