Letter for Chocolate Box

Hello [community profile] chocolateboxcomm writer! I'm so happy you're writing for me! You can really do whatever you want and I'll be happy, but I know having a little guidance is always appreciated, so hopefully this letter helps.

Likes: hurt/comfort, sex pollen (both characters sex pollened is fine by me, as is the one in their right mind nobly resisting the desperate one), kissing, bodyswap, uptight characters totally losing it, rich characters losing their wealth for whatever reason, fake marriages/dating, that thing where one thing in canon diverges so everything is different but familiar and only one character is aware that anything's happened, angst with a happy resolution, robots.

Dislikes: bashing canonical pairings, pair the spare, complete AUs (barista, high school, etc), gore, major character death, BDSM, power differentials, A/B/O dynamics

Fandom specifics!

Yuri!!! on Ice - I'm big into feelings and misunderstandings and whatever tropey over-the-top thing you might be into. I'm not really into AUs exactly, but I do like superheroes and robots, and wouldn't mind those being incorporated. I also really like how much canon incorporates social media, so I'd love something that does that.

As for ratings, if everyone's over 18, go for whatever, but nothing over T otherwise. Pairing-specific things in my letter.

Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Katsuki Yuuri/Poster of Victor Nikiforov - My OTP! Either form! Go ahead and do whatever you want with them, and feel free to combine the two. Do you have theories about when they first decided they were really a couple and not just dancing around it? Me too! Set them getting together wherever you'd like because I'll probably just nod and think 'yes, that's sensible.' I like when Yuuri turns his Eros on top volume and makes Victor nuts, but I'd also love to read about Victor debuting his new free skate after his return and that making Yuuri nuts. Give me them in Russia! Give me younger Yuuri talking to his posters and everyone side-eyeing when they see his room! Give me them planning their wedding! Give me something where social media is going n u t s over them being together, and Phichit likes to show Yuuri the most over-the-top posts! Switching's cool, kissing's cool, kissing while switching is cool. Whatever's cool. ♥them♥

Katsuki Yuuri & Yuri Plisetsky - We'd been getting hints all season that Yurio didn't actually hate Yuuri and, in fact, kind of admired him, but I loooooved that last episode revelation that Yurio liked Yuuri's step sequences and was probably trying to do some kind of weird motivation when he broke into the bathroom stall to yell at Yuuri. I'd love to read about them being friends - reluctantly on Yurio's part, of course - especially if it involves them making fun of Victor. Maybe Yuuri wants to get a cat and consults Yuri, or maybe Yuri really messes up at a competition - it makes me sad to think about, but he's still so young! - and turns to Yuuri for consolation/advice. Or maybe later in Yurio's career, after Yuuri's retired from competition, Yuri asks Yuuri to coach because Yakov's retiring.

Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky - Yurio made a friend because someone literally asked him to be friends! And Otabek is really funny to me with his thumbs up and his over-the-top motivational speeches inside his own head while he skates. I'm not really looking for anything graphic, even if you do age them up, I'm really more interested in them turning from bros into more, probably with some smooching. Again, making fun of any of the main trio in achieving this would make my whole life.

Phichit Chulanont/Katsuki Yuuri, Phichit Chulanont & Katsuki Yuuri - Yuuri basically has this five year gap where we know so little about what he did, so I'd love something with that. And in general I love friends who support each other (maybe with kissing if you go the pairing route). Phichit and Yuuri both seem like good dudes you'd want in your corner. Maybe something where they seek out food that reminds them of Thailand and Japan while they're in Michigan, or they make fun of Celestino together. Also, I can only assume that friend who went to the hospital that Yuuri was all worried about had to be Phichit, since he doesn't appear to have a lot of friends. That would be a great thing to explore.

Phichit Chulanont/Christophe Giacometti - Ahh, the crack pairing I talked myself into. But really, these two seem to be competing on almost the same level, they seem to enjoy each other's company, and Phichit gets really into cheering for Christophe's free skate in the last episode. Phichit's definitely Yuuri's best skating friend and Chris appears to be one of Victor's. Also, they're both entertainers (exhibitionists, if you want), and I bet Chris would be totally into Phichit posting a bunch of compromising pictures of him online. Just give me whatever you want for them! I'd be happy with anything!

Christophe Giacometti/Victor Nikiforov - I love that in episode 10, we learn that Chris and Victor are actually friends, and that Chris probably carries a stripper pole around with him just in case a dance battle is going to break out. That's good planning! Anyway, like Phichit and Yuuri, I'm really interested in something set before the series start. It can be fun, it can be angsty, it can be both, but I just think these two deserve more exploration. Hell, feel free to roll a bunch of stuff up and parallel this with Phichit/Yuuri and Victor/Yuuri. It could definitely be an interesting fic.



The Flash (TV 2014) - Cisco is the greatest. I really just want Cisco being appreciated! With kissing! I'd love anything showing off his Vibe powers and everyone being very impressed. I love Reverb, too, because he's just Cisco only evil. Any rating is fine.

Cisco Ramon/Hartley Rathaway, Earth-2 Cisco Ramon/Hartley Rathaway - I'll love anything for these two in basically any flavor. Isn't it nice to have a canon that keeps rewriting the details so you get like six different equally plausible characterizations? Okay, I'm aware that's sometimes annoying, but it's good for fic! I'd love them as still rivals, as wary friends-to-more after Barry first resets the timeline, as Hartley still stuck in the Pipeline, as rival CEOs in Flashpoint (or Hartley works for Cisco at Ramon Industries -- also good!), complete AUs where the particle accelerator explosion didn't go exactly the way it did in canon (like, say, Cisco was the one who confronted Wells and got fired, and Hartley stayed on) and also Reverb somehow coming to Earth-1 and taking a weird interest in Hartley. I'd also love it if you incorporated the Rogues, anyone at STAR, Hartley's parents, the Wests, everyone!

Cisco Ramon/Caitlin Snow - There's so little for these two out there and I just wish there were more. They've known each other for a long time and they're so important to each other, and they have such similar character arcs right now -- dealing with the loss of a loved one while trying to navigate a new powerset. I'd love to see Cisco developing something so Caitlin doesn't lose herself to her ice powers, or them teaming up to save Barry, or even something where they're both struggling with being good guys. I think I just need something that explores how much they need each other.

Cisco Ramon/Lisa Snart - Ah, these two are so cute together. I just want more interactions like they have in canon, since just at a glance, it seems like Lisa would be way too much for Cisco, but she's not! He handles her just fine! And they have such great chemistry! Maybe like a five times fic where they keep meeting up and hooking up, or something where everyone expects Cisco to get into her brother's good graces, and he's like why? She's an adult and can make her own decisions. Or both! Both is good.



Macdonald Hall - Gordon Korman

Bruno Walton/Boots O'Neal, Cathy Burton/Diane Grant - I originally just had "shenanigans" in this description as a placeholder, but the more I think about it, the more I find that's what I want more than anything. I'd love shenanigans at the Hall, shenanigans at Miss Scrimmage's, shenanigans set in college, shenanigans set as adults! I just love all these characters so much. I also like them being separated by circumstances and then being miserable because of those circumstances. If you want to combine both pairings, that's great, too! Something where everyone assumes the girls are dating the boys and the actual truth comes out (ha) would make my life.

You can also go with crazy in-canon tropes with either of these pairings and I'll love it. I'm specifically thinking of this time where I wrote them with mind-reading powers, but anything scientifically impossible made possible because of Edgar is a great time.



Tennis no Oujisama | Prince of Tennis

I've been filled with nostalgia for this fandom lately, so I'd really be happy with anything. I haven't read the manga in so many years, so you could probably say anything happened and I'd believe you. Also, lol don't feel beholden to using the transliterated names AO3 uses because damn Oishi has a lot of vowels in his name. I'm really just looking for tennis players having fun figuring themselves out and also eliminating the dinosaurs from planet Earth. You know, like you do. Oh, and I'd be ecstatic if you wanted to write them way out after when canon is set. Like, 25 year old Inui? Yes, that's right up my alley. I'm also fine with crazy AUs in this fandom because let's face it, there's no way you're getting wackier than the actual series. Incorporating social media from either now or when the series started would be really great, too.

Please nothing above T if they're still teenagers! If you age them up, whatever's fine.

Inui Sadaharu/Kaidou Kaoru - My OTP! I love them any way I can get them, but my favorite flavor is probably Kaidoh thinking there's! no! way! this! ever! could! happen! and Inui has apparently thought they're basically engaged. Make them as sad as you'd like as long as you make them happy after.

Momoshiro Takeshi/Kaidou Kaoru - FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT KISS FIGHT. Basically ever excellent fic for them follows this formula. I like this formula very much indeed.

Inui Sadaharu/Tezuka Kunimitsu - I'm pretty sure that Inui calling Tezuka and Tezuka hanging up on him has been the most drawn out foreplay I've ever read, and I think anyone assigned to me who's interested in them will want to take this foreplay to its logical conclusion.

Ooishi Shuuichirou/Tezuka Kunimitsu - There wouldn't be a TEAM without them. They're so dependent on each other and they make each other sad and happy and I get sad and happy reading about them.

Atobe Keigo/Momoshiro Takeshi - Listen, I've spent like a decade requesting Atobe showing Momo a good time in his limo, and I see no reason to stop requesting that now. Be the change you want to see in the world and all.



Saiyuki

Sha Gojyo/Cho Hakkai - Reread the manga up to the last available translated chapter a month ago and now my decade-old feels are back. I'm pretty interested in the after with these two, as in after they've done their quest and have to go back to their regular lives again. They're pretty codependent but they talk about finding girls to hook up with afterward and I just see that not working out well for either of them? Guest appearances from any other character would be excellent news.
