hi there!

this is ao3 user intimacies, and firstly: thank you for writing for me this exchange, dear stranger! i admittedly have a tendency to ramble, but i'll do my best to keep this letter short & sweet.

for ease of reference, i'll list some general things i enjoy receiving, as well things i'd prefer not to receive, and then some fandom-specific thoughts or prompts, if you find that sort of thing helpful; no pressure to adhere to any of my prompts, though--so long as there aren't any of my Do Not Wants, feel free to go wild! the most important thing to me is that you have fun with whatever you choose to write, and if you have fun then i'm sure i'll enjoy it, too c:

so let's get into it!

general likes & loves:
  • introspection, character and/or relationship studies
  • canon-verse fic: from pre- or -post canon, to the canon-divergent, or even the 'missing scenes'-style of things
  • found family; caretaking
  • playing around with the idea of dreams, or time
  • experimental narrative styles & structures
  • flowers! i love flower anything, from the imagery to the flower language to simply the flowers themselves
  • ambiguous/open endings ouo
  • i......have a thing for hands. i just, really like hands LMAO
  • unless otherwise stated, i don't mind relationships as either romantic or platonic or anything in between!
i'd rather not receive (Do Not Wants):
  • angst for the sake of angst. i don't mind if things get sad, just please don't kill someone off or write in anything drastic for the sake of the ~angst~ factor
  • jealousy and/or infidelity as a plot device
  • porn without plot. porn is fine if you wanted to include it, but i'd rather it not be the entirety of a thing
AU's: a quick sidenote
  • i love AU's, so please don't feel obliged to stick to canon if you'd rather not c:
  • if you do go for an AU, i'm not especially fond of coffeeshop/cafe AUs, nor soulmate AUs (in the sense that soulmates are the predestined, be all/end all for each other. anything the plays around or subverts this is all good, though!)
  • AU's i'm especially fond of: magical realism; cyberpunk; heist/yakuza/mafia; urban fantasy; historical....i'm happy to read almost anything that isn't the aforementioned bullet point!

requested fandoms & relationships:

1. ballroom e youkoso
  • hiyama chinatsu/koumoto akira
my childhood friends turned almost lovers turned spurned & resentful rivals ;___;  i'm constantly in pieces over the gradual build up & breakdown of their relationship, and how it was in a very large way brought on by the two of them reaching for similar but not the same dreams (chinatsu's dream of dancing, where akira was her partner; akira's love for chinatsu, who was her partner in dance) and, in clinging on so as not to lose said dreams, they ended up repelling each other instead.

it's both saddening & fascinating to consider what might've happened if they'd communicated their wishes a little clearer, or how they'd interact should their paths converge again in the near or distant future, away from the context of dance. or even the possibilities of their relationship in an alternate universe, and whether the cards would sway the same or hold their place.



2. birdmen
  • karasuma eishi &/ takayama sou
i love.......birdmen. no lies i will gladly & gratefully consume any content for this tiny fandom & wonderful series. what pulls me toward karasuma & takayama's relationship, however, is the incredible magnetism that draws one to the other.

karasuma is pragmatic and cynical yet somehow above all desperate to make--not friends, exactly--but connections with others, the kind of intimacy with someone that is more meaningful than a surface schoolmate dynamic. meanwhile, takayama is an enigma to karasuma in the way he feels this need to save as many people as he can, while retaining a degree of distance from the world. kind towards, but not one with everyone else.

anything that explores their strange hyperawareness of each other would be especially lovely!!

3. yuri on ice
  • katsuki yuuri &/ yuri plisetsky
  • katsuki yuuri/victor nikiforov/yuri plisetsky
  • lilia baranovskaya/okukawa minako
  • lilia baranovskaya & yuri plisetsky
*laughs nervously* i have. a lot of feelings for yuri on ice & its many characters, but especially for yuri plisetsky. and so, most of these requests revolve around the different people around him and how they might interact off-stage (lilia & yuri, yuuri & yuri) or in a more romantic context (yuuri/yuri, yuuri/victor/yuri). feel free to age yuri up if you're more comfortable with that, too, by the way!

just?? the way yuri's persona is built as someone who is ambitious and skilled, confident and self-aware but despite that, performs his best when he's thinking about other people, or if it's for someone else's sake: he started skating professionally to financially support his family; lilia mentioning his agape routine shows yuri's dicovery of what kinds of love can sustain a person. i love the conflict between what he says or does and what he means, the tiny discord meant to keep others from his inner thoughts...

i'm really curious about what goes down post-episode 12, and how yuuri's decision not to retire & victor's decision to return to competitive skating (with both of them subsequently moving to st. petersburg) might affect the status quo of yuri's life, in the public & personal spheres!

with respect to lilia/minako: i can't stop thinking about how they're both probably around the same age, and were probably active and dancing at around the same time, too. what would their interactions have been like, back then? how would they interact now, as people who once roamed the same circles, and even today have rather similar roles as ballet dancers to successful figure skaters.

the effects of distance & time & similar steps in life, and how those ripples would show is something i'd be really, really interested to see c:


4. daiya no ace
  • kuramochi youichi &/ miyuki kazuya

ah, where even to begin? kuramochi & miyuki's dynamic is by far my favourite in all of daiya: the way two people deal with similar issues in different ways (exclusion in middle school due to talent & passion / stepping away from the idea of emotional closeness v. taking care of others in order to forego attention to one's personal thoughts & space) not only get slotted together in the same team & class by the powers that be but also just. continue that proximity to each other, even when it's not enforced ("they're always together, don't they have any other friends?").

i love that, for all his posturing & teasing, kuramochi knows miyuki pretty well, and that miyuki lets him, even commenting that kuramochi is surprisingly good at looking out for others. they play off of each other so easily, and it's so intriguing thinking about the disconnect between their interactions & their emotions, and how that develops over time, if they grow together or apart, still held together by that thread of shared affinities, & 3 years spent learning how to act around each other, if not precisely learning the other themself, as honest as it can be.

i realise i've just been.....rambling, i'm sorry, but i really don't have any specific prompts for these two. their dynamic floats itself, and i love seeing it in any & every time, world or place c: 


5. sangatsu no lion | march comes in like a lion
  • kiriyama rei & souya touji
  • kiriyama rei & kawamoto hina

the parallels between rei & souya are only briefly touched upon for a few chapters in the manga, but the synergy between the two of them when they played shogi & how that translates (or doesn't) away from the game is fascinating to think about! especially when the people around them note them as similar in their effect on their surroundings & the people around them, if not quite in their demeanour and mannerisms.

on the other hand, i love the warmth and awkward-yet-sincere caretaking in rei & hina's relationship! they care about each other a lot and always try their best to show that care, and the developing depth of their feelings for each other as well as the lengths they'd go for the other because of it is such an uplifting, endearing thing to behold c: feel free to include any of the other kawamoto family members, too--their dynamic is as much a shared bond with the rest of that family as it is also evolving into a similar-but-different bond with just the two of them!


6. chang ge xing | song of the long march
  • ashina sun & mujin
i don't ship these two romantically, but i'm so fond of the depth of their bond & belief in the other, and how clearly it shows in the way they act around others as well as the way they act just with each other. absolutely anything at all about them would be lovely!

hi, hello, dear gifter this yuletide!

let me preface this letter with an apology for getting this letter out so late.... but, it's my hope that this letter is even slightly useful to you all the same c:

anyway, i'll outline some things i really enjoy receiving, as well as things i'd prefer not to see. that said, the most important thing to me is that you're creating something you enjoy, too, so i only ask you not include any of the things i'd prefer not to see--thanks so much in advance, and i look forward to seeing what you create!

OH, and before i forget: you don't have to include both characters i requested for my fandoms if you don't want to. following this vein, feel free to add any characters unspecified if you'd like to! 


things i love:
  • introspection, character and/or relationship studies
  • canon-verse fic! whether pre- or post-canon, canon-divergent, or kind of 'missing scenes' -type things
  • playing with the idea of dreams, or time
  • flowers!!!!! i love flower anything, really
  • gen! i like shippy and gen equally, so whatever you wanna roll with works for me: shippy or gen or anything in between. 
  • ambiguous relationships; found family; friends with benefits--dynamics where some form of intimacy is involved, if not so easily expressed.

*AUs sidenote:
  • AUs are super sweet!! the main thing with me about AUs is, if you do choose this path, please no: cafe/coffee shop, A/B/O, or soulmates AUs (in the sense that soulmates are ~predestined~ for each other; it's the lack of perceived choice that i'm not so hot for, i guess). other than that, feel free to go wild!
  • some AU ideas: historical, 25 lives/reincarnation, heist/robbers, cyberpunk... most everything is A-OK!

things i'd rather not receive:
  • pwp. nsfw is fine, i'd just rather it not be the entirety of the thing c:
  • (non-canonical) character death for any of my requested fandoms. this doesn't apply to reincarnation-type things though, in which death is kinda...hard to avoid? lol
  • over-westernisation, or western concepts that don't really apply if set in canon-verse, e.g.: prom in japan, or having a driver's license that isn't for a moped or motorcycle at 16. it's mostly the little things, so like, please don't stress or anything aaa
... and that's about everything! i wish you much inspiration and a lot of fun with creating!! c:


***quick update: requested fandoms & characters, for ease of reference!
  • DAYS (anime & manga) | mizuki hisahito, indou kaoru
  • mystic messenger (video game) | 707/luciel choi, unknown/saeran choi
  • ookiku furikabutte/big windup! | haruna motoki, akimaru kyouhei
  • BIRDMEN | karasuma eishi, takayama sou
  • bungou stray dogs | nakahara chuuya, dazai osamu

HI HELLO firstly i am...... so sorry this is so late FBKSDBKGDFJBGJB but like!!!! this is ao3 user commovente and hello, dear gifter, and thank you so much for making something for me!!!!! i'm very excited to see what you've created c: i like a lot of things, haha, so whatever you'll have fun with, i'm sure i'll like receiving, too. here are just some general things i like & would prefer not to receive, though, if you find that helpful!

likes:
♢ anything canon compliant or set in canonverse including, but not limited to: pre-/post-canon scenes, "missing" scenes, slice of life
♢ character studies, relationship studies
♢ for AUs: i'm so not picky when it comes to AUs, you can go for almost anything here: modern, more realistic AUs; magical realism or supernatural elements AUs; multiverse or reincarnation AUs; japanese history or mythology AUs.... it's all good : ))
♢ ambiguous relationships or (if shippy) slowburn -- i love all the feelings jazz, and tend to gravitate to subtler, softer kinds of romantic development over meet-cutes
♢ the idea of distance, whether physical or otherwise
♢ flowers!! include anything at all to do with flowers & i'll probably love you forever, honestly. i love flower imagery or symbolism or the actual flowers themselves
♢ found families and/or caretaking

i'd rather not receive:
♢ if possible, i'd really appreciate if you could avoid non-canonical death or career-threatening injuries(if applicable to the fandom!). which is to say, please don't just kill a character for angst and angst alone? if that makes sense..... 
♢ jealousy as a plot device, or including any kind of infidelity
♢ when it comes to AUs: no coffee/cafe AUs, please! they're really the only kind i can never get v excited for, to my constant confusion
♢ over-westernisation (e.g.: characters going to denny's or other franchises that... aren't in japan lmao)
♢ if you're including nsfw or sexual content: please no noncon/dubcon, or a/b/o, or adult/minor situations! everything else is game for me : ))


request 1: DAYS
(requested characters: mizuki, indou, ubukata)

if you can somehow combine these three into a situation somehow i'll probably love you forever, tbh. that said though, this request was more along the lines of: indou / or & indou; ubukata anything, with/without the other two, which seems..... a lot more doable?? orz orz i really just want more content for my soccer favourites i'm not picky at all and will accept anything and everything lmao;;


request 2: daiya no ace | ace of diamond
(requested characters: miyuki, kuramochi, mei, mukai, toujou, okumura, akamatsu)

one of the things i love the most about daiya is how interconnected the cast is with each other, and the similarities between characters who've never or rarely interacted with each other, and how those might play out if they did get that opportunity to be around each other. to make a long story short, lmao, you could pick any of these characters and/or mix and match them and i'd be interested in seeing how it turns out..... but if it's useful, some of my favourite dynamics (gen or shippy) are:

- miyuki, kuramochi
- okumura, akamatsu
- mukai, toujou
- honestly miyuki with........any of the other characters. orz


request 3: song of the long march | choukakou
(requested characters: mujin, ashina sun, li chang ge)

really the only thing i gotta mention here is i don't really ship mujin romantically with either sun or chang ge; but other than that, i'd be happy to get anything for choukakou, it's such a small fandom content-wise, but the series is near & dear to my heart c":


request 4: ookiku furikabutte | big windup!!
(requested characters: haruna, akimaru)

gen or shippy or anything in between is a-ok with these two! i'm just really invested and intrigued in the ups and downs and tiny details about their dynamic, and how for two people who've known each other an awfully long time, they're still so? not dysfunctional, exactly, but. they've still got their rough edges around each other :"))

this said, though, if you wanted to do something focusing more on just one of them, that's totally fine too c:

Parallels Exchange 2016

Hi there, this is Andrea/ao3 user commovente!!! Since you're reading this, I'm guessing you got me as your recipient for Parallels; I'm so happy you're making something for me, and really excited to see what you create :D This letter is just a space for me to outline general things I like in gifts, as well as some more fandom specific stuff if that's helpful for you! By no means is any of this a set-in-stone ruleset -- feel free to go wherever you want to go for this exchange. If you had fun with it, then I'll probably really enjoy it, too. The only thing I ask is not to have anything in the "dislikes" list included in your gift if possible, please and thank you so much!!

keep reading!! )
kitaiichis: (Default)
hi there! ♡

since you're reading this, it's probably safe to guess you're my creator for hqhols this time around (yay!!!). i'm already super keen to see what you'll come up with, so the most important thing to me is that you have fun with what you're creating, too! also, if we aren't already, i hope we can become friends by the end of this exchange as well : D

generally speaking, whatever you feel like making is a-okay, but just in case you're stuck or want some ideas, i'll outline some things i like or would prefer not to see in general, as well as some request-specific things if that's helpful, too! 

so without further ado...



a list of all my requests, as a reference:

♢ datekougyou | date tech volleyball club ( gen, --> T)

♢ yahaba shigeru, kyoutani kentarou, watari shinji ( gen, --> T)

♢ iwaizumi hajime, oikawa tooru (gen or shippy, any rating)

♢ kozume kenma, tsukishima kei (gen or shippy, any rating)



i generally love to see:

♢ anything canon compliant or set in canonverse including, but not limited to: pre-/post-canon scenes, "missing" scenes, slice of life
♢ character studies, relationship studies
♢ for AUs: i'm so not picky when it comes to AUs, you can go for almost anything here: modern, more realistic AUs; magical realism or supernatural elements AUs; multiverse or reincarnation AUs; japanese history or mythology AUs.... it's all good : ))
♢ ambiguous relationships or (if shippy) slowburn -- i love all the feelings jazz, and tend to gravitate to subtler, softer kinds of romantic development over meet-cutes
♢ the idea of distance, whether physical or otherwise
♢ flowers!! include anything at all to do with flowers & i'll probably love you forever, honestly. i love flower imagery or symbolism or the actual flowers themselves
♢ found families and/or caretaking



things i'm not so hot about:

♢ if possible, i'd really appreciate if you could avoid non-canonical death and career- and/or life-threatening injuries. which is to say, please don't just kill someone off to make things sad, omg (but if you were writing a reincarnation AU, for example, then that'd at least make sense??)
♢ jealousy as a plot device, or including any kind of infidelity
♢ when it comes to AUs: no coffee/cafe AUs, please! they're really the only kind i can never get v excited for, to my constant confusion
♢ please don't call oikawa tooru trash
♢ over-westernisation (e.g.: characters going to denny's or other franchises that... aren't in japan lmao)
♢ if you're including nsfw or sexual content: please no noncon/dubcon, or a/b/o, or adult/minor situations! everything else is game for me : ))



request 1: datekou (gen, rating up to T)

i will happily and gratefully accept anything for the iron wall kids, they're all endearing and ridiculous and i love them a lot : D also, bonus points if you include and/or put some focus on onagawa tarou, my fav pantalons!!! 



request 2: yahaba shigeru, kyoutani kentarou, watari shinji (gen, rating up to T)

lmfao i'm so so so invested in next gen seijou so, even though i didn't include them in the request, i won't mind if kindaichi and/or kunimi are in here, too.... but yeah, this request is just me hankering after more of the developing dynamic between the soon-to-be seijou third years! preferably a canonverse or modern AU but i'm not super fussed : D

(p.s. i will also definitely not mind if you add in queerplatonic dynamics with these three....)



request 3: iwaizumi hajime, oikawa tooru (gen or shippy, any rating)

once an iwaoi, always an iwaoi -- these two are my hq forever pair, and i'll take whatever you're willing to give me omg. gen or shippy or something in between, it's all great!!!! i love how strong their bond is, i love how supportive they are of each other, i love how strong their individual personalities are and how that just shines even more when you put them together :D

(p.s.: nsfw is totally cool if you wanted to include that)



request 4: kozume kenma, tsukishima kei (gen or shippy, any rating)

i literally only stumbled into these two because i couldn't decide which one of them i wanted to request so, naturally, my brain just went: why not both? (laughs) that said, you don't actually have to put these two together if you'd rather do a character-centric thing with just one of them! i just think they'd have a potentially really interesting dynamic to play around with, so the possibility remains open there, either as gen or shippy : )

(p.s: nsfw is totally cool if you wanted to include that)



.... AND that's about it. looking back thru this now, i realise i ended up going on for a long time omg, i'm so sorry, thank you so much for reading all the way until the end! i'm honestly just a highkey emotional, easily excitable soul with no sense of Precise, Direct writing whoops. i hope you have a super time with this exchange, and i look forward to seeing what you come up with (i believe in you) !!!
