first of all - happy Autumn and 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 it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write or create is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy writing/creating the art; 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 - I didn't request it, but it's always a good example) and crossovers (except for maybe a Narcissa Malfoy / Catelyn Stark or Druella Black / TV!Morticia Addams fic because those would be amazing), 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.
Below you will find the relatively basic information about my requests - and I think my requests when it comes to Spooky/Seasonal/No Theme should be relatively logical when it comes to the fandoms... Just as an example, how cool would a Miss Fisher case set around Halloween be? Or, the self-explanatory Addams Family? ANYWAY. Again, I am incredibly excited to see what you come up with, and I'll absolutely adore it! ♥
Memoirs Of A Geisha
Ships: Mameha & Hatsumomo, Mameha/The Baron, Hatsumomo/Mameha
Mameha and Hatsumomo, whether as a ship or gen relationship, have SUCH an interesting dynamic... Like, we know they have a backstory, and a large one at that looking at how they knew each other since their childhood, but we never really learn anything about it, except for a few small details. Seriously, though, there is so much to discover, and I've always been so excited to explore it more closely, no matter which aspect of it.
As for Mameha and the Baron... I have such a morbid fascination with these two. Like... I would never want to glorify how abusive and terrifying he was, but... It's so incredibly intense. Like, he was so nasty, but nonetheless Mameha loved that man despite knowing love would break her neck in so many ways and denied it so desperately even though it was so clear, and it's just all a very Maybe I Like It This Way situation. SO much fic and art and angst potential! ♥
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
Ships: Phryne Fisher/Jack Robinson, Phryne Fisher & Elizabeth MacMillan, Phryne Fisher/Elizabeth MacMillan
Oh God, I have no words for how very much in love I am with this show. Honestly, I adore Phryne. I truly do. I could write novels about how much I adore her, haha. And I really couldn't decide with whom I ship her more - Jack or Mac. They both have such beautiful dynamics, and Mac is such a beautifully tragic character... They could have such a lovely, bitterswet relationship... GAAAH, that would be amazing. ♥
I've been looking for some angsty vulnerable!Phryne (it will certainly be fascinating to Jack AND Mac to watch her in a state like this, since she's usually so beyond strong and only tends to let go for a moment when she's alone) Miss Fisher fic (or artwork) everywhere but to no avail, so of course it would absolutely warm my heart to receive an angsty piece! If it starts going into a different direction, however, that's perfectly fine as well! Anything would be totally amazing <3.
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 piece more than anything, ngl! Like with Miss Fisher, I've been craving it for an incredibly long time because I've sort of missed real angst moments in the show - and the few ones were resolved way too quickly - but fluff or flangst would also just warm my heart! (This is one of the few fandoms where I am also not entirely opposed to real, actual fluff, haha.) Whatever strikes your fancy will be perfect there.
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 beautiful as well, but not as the Morticia and Gomez that were introduced to us in the TV Show, so I separate strictly between the canons), so all my love fully focuses on the TV Show characters. And... Honestly... I mean... Couldn't these two be any more perfect for Halloween? ♥
The Mummy Series
Ships: Evy Carnahan O'Connell/Rick O'Connell, Anck Su Namun/Imhotep
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, once again, I turn into a giant bundle of feels when I think of them. My favourite movie in the series is "The Mummy Return", mostly because it is so great to see that after nearly a decade their relationship has blossomed in the way it did, and that they have crafted a truly strong, unbreakable bond that connects them, which is absolutely beautiful. I would much prefer the piece to revolve around the "Mummy Returns" timeline, but as long as you stick to Rachel Weisz as Evie, everything will be great!
As for Anck Su Namun and Imhotep... I've actually never requested them, or thought much about them, but as I was signing up and saw them in the options list, the more I considered... And I would love to explore their dynamics more. I always feel so bad for Imhotep because he truly loves her, and she just uses him... But what about her past? Did she really never love him? Or did she just grow cold over the years? I'm actually starting to ship them just from thinking of these things, haha, so exploring these two a little more would be just great!
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! ♥
