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 an Addams Family piece set on Halloween be? ANYWAY. Again, I am incredibly excited to see what you come up with, and I'll absolutely adore it! ♥
The Last Czars
I've always been incredibly fascinated by Russian History, particularly the last Romanovs. The more I read about them, the more I want to discover their relationships, their dynamics, everything about them. When The Last Czars got released by Netflix then, I immediately binged all six episodes, cried my eyes out at the end, and did way more re-watches than I care to admit. So... If I could receive anything about them - particularly Alexandra and Nikolai, I ship them so hardcore - I always have, really... So that would be absolutely brilliant. ♥
I cannot necessarily see them celebrate Halloween or anything, but there is so much to set the mood! Autumn, hauntings, slightly spooky stuff... I'm getting so many ideas there, haha!
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 Worst Witch (2017)
Ships: Hecate/Ada, Hecate & Ada
Miss Hardbroom has been my favourite character ever since I was a child watching (and later, re-watching) the 1998 TV Show, and when I stumbled up on the 2017 one now, my love exploded into entirely new spheres, haha. I love Hecate. Honestly, I adore her so much - she's so strict but has this... strict gentility to her, and she always wants the best for her girls, including Mildred. Also, I just love her relationship with Ada, how burningly, fiercely loyal Hecate is to her, and how much these two love each other, even if they only share a glance or two. Whether in the romantic, platonic, or mother-daughterly sense! Everything Hecate/Ada just warms my heart so much, though <333.
And... I mean... I do not think I really have to mention how perfect Worst Witch is for anything Halloween, spooky, seasonal, right? I am squealing already just thinking about it! ♥
Ships: Lorelai/Luke, Emily/Richard
Oh my Goodness, I love that show so much. Besides Charmed, it was my very first favourite TV Show, and the love just remains burning intensely. I have always been a huge, he lover of Emily and Richard, my favourites and my OTP, just because I love their devotion to one another and their family, as well as their hidden quirks, and... Just everything about them (Emily's emotions. OMG.), they're simply the best <3333. I do ship Lorelai and Luke with a passion as well, though, those four are just my all-time favourites <3333.
I'm forever sad that we didn't get to see a much Autumn and Halloween Gilmore as I would have hoped, but this leaves it all to the imagination...! Or maybe a seriously spooky haunting? So. Many. Options.
Memoirs Of A Geisha
Ships: 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! ♥
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! ♥
