Dear Author,

Thank you for writing for me for this celebration of rare pairs! I'm so, so looking forward to whatever it is you write me; I'm sure I'll love it!

I'd like to start with a general DNW list, and then I'll move onto any fandom-specific notes and ideas beneath a cut!

  • Sad endings
  • Explicit sexual content
  • Non-Con/Dub-Con
  • Incest
  • Genderbends
  • Body Horror
  • Gore of any kind
  • Crackfic
  • Non-Canon Character Death
  • Drug Use (unless canon)

Steven Universe:
Lars/Steven - Ah, the OTP that took me by surprise. I headcanon Lars at 16 years, and we known Steven is 14, so if you want to stick with a canon 'verse, I do ask that you set any Lars/Steven in the future, when Steven is 18 or so at least - and has aged physically, ofc. I'd really love to see Lars growing into his role as a heroic character, but also struggling to accept that Steven has so much to juggle in addition to their relationship. Also, just something with cuteness and sweetness, because they're really cute and sweet. Alternatively, give me a fantasy AU for these two - something Harry Potter/Hogwarts-esque, or even explicitly that. (Still would like some cuteness and sweetness!)

Amethyst/Garnet - I like these two a lot, and I wish they got more love as a ship. They're so different and I'd love something where Amethyst has feelings for Garnet but struggles to accept that Garnet returns these. Give me all those angsty, Amethyst's low self-esteem feels - but I'd really prefer if this isn't something where Garnet's feelings for Amethyst "fix" Amethyst's issues, because that's really... Yeah. Not a good narrative. I'd love her to have growth, and Garnet can help with that, but odds are she'll still have her issues, you know?

Smoky Quartz/Peridot - Why do I ship this? No clue. But I do - as long as Smoky Quartz is treated as their own being and not just the sum of their parts. Because of all the awkwardness and trickiness of Smoky Quartz being a fusion - and one involving Steven, at that - I'm all for a human AU in this case. High school, college, something more genre-focused - whatever you want!

Pokemon (Anime):
Colress/Meowth - Again - Why do I ship this? I mean, I know why I ship this. Their chemistry in ''Meowth, Colress, and Team Rivalry" was fascinating and twisted and disturbingly delicious. I do see Meowth as a character who thinks of himself as more human than Pokemon by far, so please keep that in mind. I'd like to see a level of unhealthiness here, to be honest - an idea I really like is that they're both using each other at first but end up developing real feelings for one another. Again, go for a human!Meowth is you want, or take the two out of the Pokemon world all together!

Descendants (2015):
Jay/Jordan - I adore these two in theory, even though they've barely interacted in Wicked World beyond... Jay stealing her lamp. Jordan's just such a fun, different Auradon teen. She's sassy and kind of a wise-ass, but she's not catty like Audrey. She seems pretty grounded but also cocky, and I love that. I'd love to see her and Jay coming to terms with the difficulties of their heritage vs. their relationship - although I personally can't really imagine Genie caring that Jay is Jafar's son, I think Agrabah as a whole would take a lot of issue with Jay just being there. General fun, light-hearted shenanigans are definitely great, though.
