Summary:


The discovery that Haggar was apparently Altean had been mostly ignored in the wake of Shiro’s disappearance. Allura had told them in aftermath of the battle, as they all huddled exhausted and in shock in what they’d dubbed the living room. As world changing as the news might have been at any other time, it paled in comparison to the team’s current situation. There were far more immediate concerns. Yet as days turned in weeks, without any sign of Shiro, one member of Voltron couldn’t help but keep thinking about the revelation.


In an abstract sort of fashion, Pidge had always been fascinated by Haggar from the moment she’d learned about her. Sure, she was a crazy space witch. A psychotic alien who had tortured Shiro and who knew how many others. She’d created the Robobeasts that they’d fought multiple times. Logically, Pidge shouldn’t want to know anything more about her than she absolutely had to.

Pidge can't resist the opportunity to find out more about Haggar. She's not sure about what she finds.

Pidge investigates Haggar! With special guest Altean tabloids.

Ngl, as soon as I read Did someone say Luke & Rachel role swap? in the author's note I went HELL YEAH I DID.


I wrote three fics: an assignment, a pinch-hit and a treat. Feel free to guess which fic(s) are mine! (I feel like one of them is glaringly, obviously mine.)

dhampyresa: (SCIENCE SMASH)
Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have six Do Not Wants: allegory/metaphor of real world politics, incest, rape, child abuse, character death and dysphoria. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

Feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything.


Demigods Series - Rick Riordan
  • Characters: Luke Castellan, Rachel Elizabeth Dare
  • Worldbuilding: Children of Hecate and the Titan War, Oracle of Delphi (Demigods Series), Possession by a Titan

I feel like there are the pretty obvious pairings of Luke + Possession and Rachel + Oracle, but the reverse on those could also be interesting, either in canon (Luke & his mother the Oracle, Rachel and hitting Titans in the face) or in a role-reversal AU. Children of Hecate could go either way with being with Luke or Rachel. And of course I am always up for Rachel & Luke (or Rachel/Luke, why not) shenanigans.


Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Characters: Wanda Maximoff
  • Worldbuilding: Relationship between magic and science
Over in the Thor movies the MCU took great pains to make magic super-advanced science. But then there's Wanda. If you want to explore this via interaction between Wanda and Thor, that'd be cool, but I would also love Wanda + Tony or Wanda solo vs Science. (Fyi, I haven't seen Doctor Strange.)


Marvel Secret Wars Battleworlds
  • Characters: Valeria - Head of the Foundation, God Emperor Doom
  • Worldbuilding: the building of Battleworld, effects of Doom being omnipotent but not omniscient, role of the Foundation, the Thors & their hammers & Doomgard
FUCK YEAH BATTLEWORLD! I love Battleworld. No lie, Secret Wars was my favourite event in ages. It gave excellent Doom and Valeria. And the worldbuilding potential was fascinating. Feel free to bring in other characters from the comics (including non-nominated ones, like Wanda Maximoff or Goddess of Stories Loki or Cassandra Lang) if you want.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
  • Characters: Chirrut Îmwe, Jyn Erso, Mon Mothma
  • Worldbuilding: Rebel Alliance High Command, politics of the Rebel Alliance, the Whills, the Guardians of the Whills, Mon Mothma's role in the Rebellion, Jyn's crystal pendant, Data storage, Holidays of a Galaxy Far Far Away
There's obviously overlap between a lot of the Rebellion prompts, but whatever, I am here for punching the Empire in the face. Or Empire-punchers taking a breather and having themselves a nice holiday -- possibly having cocktails on a beach. I am super curious about the Whills and their Guardians. What are they? What's the relationship between the two? Also, was that harddrive the plans were on old school or what?


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types
  • Characters: Riyo Chuchi, CT-7567 | Rex, Bo-Katan Kryze
  • Worldbuilding: Legal Status of Clones, Pantoran Culture, Mission in the clones' dreams, Maul's rule of Mandalore, in-universe fandom and RPF
I don't understand how the Jedi can (a) think they're the good guys and (b) say there's no slavery in the Republic when they're literally fighting this war with an army of enslaved child soldiers. Like. WTF? Also, that dream mission Fives as he's dying, what is that? I'm kind of sad we never got to see Maul on Mandalore, especially Maul vs Mandalore. I'm super curious about Pantoran culture -- like, what do those tatoos mean? And in-universe fandom is my favourite thing.


Stargate Atlantis
  • Characters: Todd
  • Worldbuilding: Wraith culture, Wraith and the Iratus bug, First Wraith against Atlantis War
I just want to know everything about the Wraith, okay? ALL THE THINGS. Also, I loved loved loved that bit in Last Man where Ronon and Todd (briefly) work together and sacrifice themselves for the same cause, so anything with a Todd + Ronon team-up would be aces. I also love Todd and Teyla's relationship, as well as his relationship with John.


Voltron: Legendary Defender
  • Characters: Haggar
  • Worldbuilding: Galra Empire, Blade of Marmora, Alteans
Haggar is the space witch/mad scientist mash-up of my heart. I want to know everything about her and the world she lives in -- who are her assistants? Why don't they have faces? Is she really Altean? What does that mean to her? Can she get the slipperies? Is she Keith's mom? Do I ship her with Pidge? Yes. They could bond over mad science, it'd be cute/horrifying. I would also love to see her relationship with Shiro and/or Allura explored.


Thank you again so much for writing for me!

dhampyresa: (that's high profile)
I made two works for Trick or Treat! And I was very careful about not referring to them as fics, because one of them's only half fic.

The Revolution Will Be Illustrated (956 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 3/3
Fandom: Star Wars: Rebels
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Sabine Wren
Additional Tags: Mixed Media, Fanart, Fanfiction, Backstory, Character Study, Traditional Media, Digital Art
Summary: Sabine changes and her art changes with her.

According to the wishes of the artist, every piece is presented as it might have been at the time of its inception.

My assignment was [archiveofourown.org profile] shiningstar who requested both fic and art and ALL OF THE STAR WARS. I'm not sure which of the Star Wars we matched on, but it wasn't Rebels since I don't offer what I request.

Anyhow, my first thought was to write Sabine/Numa crackship femslash (although they have actually met and talked in canon so it's not that much of a crackship). I couldn't figure out how to make it work in the time that I had -- but now I know how to do it -- so I went with an idea I'd been vaguely thinking of before assignments went out.

Sabine is, canonically, an artist, so I wanted to do a character study through her art.

So I did! It's a combination of backstory (+ futurefic) and character study, with art. Sabine's an Imperial cadet turned bounty hunter turned Rebel by the time we meet her in canon. The fic is split in three parts: one at the Imperial Academy on Mandalore, another while she's a bounty hunter and one last one set after Return of the Jedi.

Fic-wise, I tried to reflect the dehumanising effect of the Empire by having names creep into the narrative as Sabine spends time away: first part has no names, second part has other people's names and last part has her name. You can see that in the in-story titling of the artwork too.

I mirrored that in the art by having colour creep into the pictures. First one's black and white (+ red), second one is blue monochrome (+ red) and the last one is in full colour. And now I'm going to talk more about said art.

Art babble + 3 pictures )

The title of the work is a reference to Gil Scott-Heron's The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

It was really, really hard for me to give someone art as a gift, even with fic associated with it. I kept having to talk myself into it -- "It's not good enough!" "Self, the writing part alone is three times the minimum requirement! POST THE THING."

(Also while I was fiddling with it I managed to accidentally default on my assignment. *facepalm* I PM'd the exchange mod who gave me back the assignment -- but didn't tell me, so if I hadn't noticed will posting Out of the Cold that my assignment count had gone back up, I might have stayed defaulted.)


Filling my assignment took up a lot of time and brainspace, so I only made one treat for the exchange.

the ruin of the soul (669 words) by sevenofspade

Fandom: Voltron: Legendary Defender
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Haggar (Voltron)
Additional Tags: Mad Science, ToT: Monster Mash
Summary: A day in the life of Haggar, mad scientist of the Galra Empire.


The title comes from François Rabelais' Pantagruel: "Science without conscience is but the ruin of the soul". And while "Science sans conscience n'est que ruine de l'âme" is a MASSIVELY famous quote in France, it sadly not so in English and suddenly I sound really pretentious quoting 16th century French authors? So I figured "in for a pretentious penny, in for a pretentious pound" and didn't capitalise the title at all. (*dodges pitchforks from the title police*)

I hesitated to tag Shiro in this, but Haggar doesn't consider him a person I went with not tagging him.

This fic also features all of my Voltron headcanons, except the one about Pidge being a K-drama protagonist an adult woman who is both short and can pass as a boy. To wit, it features the following: spoilers, I guess ). While writing it I also gave myself the headcanon that Haggar gave Shiro the white lock in his hair deliberately.


Idk, apparently my theme this ToT was "artists and their art". Both fics were betaed by the ever excellent chiiyo86, who I can finally credit now that author reveals are here.
dhampyresa: (Epic shit happening on the internet)
I GOT A TRICK AND A TREAT! (I cannot believe I git two fics? I am the luckiest.)

Trick-wise, I got an FMA fic about Scar from before canon to after and it gives excellent angst, let me tell you.

I made two things for Trick or Treat. They're both in new fandoms for me and are somewhat outside of what I usually post (for different reasons), so I'm quite curious to see if anyone can tell which ones they are.

dhampyresa: (Default)
Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have three Do Not Wants: incest, rape and child abuse. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I'd also prefer is you didn't dwell on any suicidal ideation or prolonged descriptions of grief. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. And no drownings, please. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

I requested both Trick and Treat for everything, so feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything. Crossovers between any of my requested fandoms are welcome.


Ancient History RPF (Hannibal Barca, Scipio Africanus)

(Relevant tag.)

I ship them super hard, but I would also be delighted by gen about them, either together or separately. I would welcome both serious (alternate) history-based stuff and silly trope-based stuff. Maybe Hannibal takes Rome! Maybe Carthage won the First Punic War! Maybe they both fall into a dimensional rift and end up accidentally travelling through time and space! Maybe it is in fact a Pun-ic war (I LIKE PUNS)! Maybe they have to get married For Reasons!

For Hannibal-only prompts, I'd love anything about his relationship with Carthage. Anything involving female members of his family and/or Tanith and/or Dido would be amazing! I also really like his friendship with Maharbal.

Scipio wise, I would love something about his relationship with his daughter or his relationship his wife (and hey, if you want to write Aemilia/Scipio/Hannibal, I'm sure not saying no).


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood & Manga (Greed (Brotherhood/Manga), Scar (Brotherhood/Manga), Winry Rockbell (Brotherhood/Manga) )

I don't actually ship Ed/Winry, but other than that I don't really have any FMA ship feelings, so feel free to write whatever. Including any combination of my requested characters. Greed/Scar? Sure! Scar/Winry? Okay! Winry/Greed? Bring it on! Hell, even Greed/Scar/Winry, I'm down with.

I'm fascinated by the Greed/Ling relationship and how it poses the question of what it means to be human. So anything about that would be aces. Maybe a fix-it for the ending? That said, I also really like the first Greed and would love fic about him too. Canon-divergent AU where he becomes friends with Izumi?

The Scar + Mei + Marcoh (with occasional guest star Winry Rockbell) is my favourite part of FMA. No lie, the relationship between Scar and Winry is the most interesting one in all of FMA to me, because it's so complex and heartbreaking and yet heartwarming. But I also really like that Scar is a loner AND YET he somehow ends up with a gaggle of people following him around. I would absolutely love anything about Scar and Ishval, be that before, during or after canon.

How much do I love that Winry is a gearhead? A LOT. It's honestly my favourite thing about her. That and how kind she is. I would love stories about her and automail and I kind of low-key ship her and Paninya. Like I said above, the relationship between her and Scar is fascinating to me and anything about that would be amazing. I'd also love anything about Winry and Pinako and/or Winry and her parents' legacy. Or even her weird whatever-that-was with Kimblee or her friendship with Riza!


Locke & Key (Dodge (Locke & Key), Kinsey Locke)

(Relevant tag.)

I kind of ship these two in a fucked up way, but also I kind of ship Zack/Tyler and Kinsey/Jackie. Okay, I really ship Kinsey/Jackie. Anyway, I think the relationship between Kinsey and Dodge is amazingly twisted and super interesting.

I will forever find it hilarious that Dodge is AN ELDRITCH ABOMINATION FROM BEYOND LOVECRAFT. And yet his ultimate goal is to get a family of sorts? Poor Dodge. (Poor Luke, too.) I would totally be up for an AU in which Dodge won. Or an AU in which he got therapy.

Kinsey is THE BEST. I really love her adventures with Jackie, Jamal and Scot, so if you want to write an AU where they're deep-space explorers or something, go for it! (I'd prefer no focus on her relationship with her mother. Thank you.) Also, I would really love the AU where she allies with/befriends Jordan (do I ship them? Hell yes). ALSO therapy. So much therapy. Possibly with the help of the Head Key.


Star Wars: Rebels (Sabine Wren)

I love how important to Sabine art is and would love something about that. In the episode with Lando, they both recognise that her work has specific influences and I would love to hear about how she picked those and how she feels about those artists. I ship her with Ketsu, but not Ezra or Hera -- speaking of which, I see them as having more of a younger sister/older sister relationship, not daughter/mother. I would also love to see Sabine and Rex interact, maybe they bond over art or Mandalore or EXPLOSIONS! (Also, I love her -explosions-are-art attitude.) In the S1 finale, I really liked the glimpse of the relationship she has with the Lothal Stormtroopers -- they call her 'Artist'! How cute is that? And that one Stormtrooper liking her TIE paint job, aw.

EDIT: I will most likely be up-to-date on Rebels S3 by reveals, but even if not I have already sean all of seasons 1 and 2 and don't mind spoilers. That said, also feel free to set your fic pre-S3 or in the far fututr or in a canon-divergent AU.


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars), CT-7567 | Rex (Clone Wars), Riyo Chuchi (The Clone Wars) )

Ship-wise, I'm cool with any combination of the above, as long as Ahsoka is no longer underage. I don't ship mentor/mentee ships, but aside from that, go wild! But I would also love any of those as a platonic relationship.

Ahoska and Ventress interacting is a joy to me so anything with those two would be great. I also really enjoy Ahsoka and Riyo's friendship and her relationship with Anakin and Rex (together and separately). I would 100% love the fic about Ahsoka's roadtrip post-leaving the Jedi, including potentially awkward team-ups, like Maul or Bo-Katan.

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeex. I feel so bad for him and all the clones for, like, everything. Somebody give this man a hug. Especially post-Umbara, because man it is a crying shame we never saw any fall out from that. Or a post-Kadavo hug. Just. Basically all the hugs? Or something where he gets to be happy, because he smiles like TWICE in the entire show.

Riyo is my favourite minor character from Clone Wars. She's only got speaking parts in two episodes, but I really like her character arc and her friendship with Ahsoka and how kind she is. I also happen to enjoy the politics of Star Wars, so if you want to have her team-up with Padmé and/or Satine and/or Mon Mothma FOR GREAT JUSTICE, I am entirely up for that.


Voltron: Legendary Defender (Haggar (Legendary Defender), Pidge | Katie Holt, Shiro (Legendary Defender) )

I am totally down with any ship combination of these three, as long as no one's underage. Gen is of course always welcome.

Haggar is basically a mad scientist IN SPACE. WITH MAGIC. Which is totally my jam. I have a real thing for the intersection of magic and science. I'd also love to hear more about her relationship with Zarkon and/or Shiro. There's great hilarious mileage to be had out of Haggar having to master shape-shifting into Shiro (for... reasons...?).

Speaking of mad scientists! PIdge is basically one step away from being a mad scientist herself. I would love anything about her and SCIENCE. Maybe her and Shiro bonding while she tries to fix his metal arm? Or her and Hunk being Science Bros! Or her trying to explain peanut butter to Allura. Also, as a short person, I like to think Pidge is an adult who just happens to be short.

Shiro! Poor dude! He also needs a hug. I really like the metal arm and I would love fic where it develops weirder and weirder powers. Also, I would love to know how he manages to keep his eyeliner so on point all the fucking time. Like. HOW. How did he escape the Galra? What about a canon-divergent AU where he didn't? Shiro/evil!Shiro would be fascinating.


Thank you again for writing for me! I'm sure any you write will be wonderful and I look forward to reading it.

Comments welcome!

dhampyresa: (This is my life)
I forgot I should do a reading Wednesday post yesterday. Oops. To be fair, I am kind of still trying to put coherent thoughts to my feelings on Grass King's Concubine and Le Déchronologue.

Have tings I have recently watched, instead.


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

I have SO MUCH FEELINGS. This might be because [livejournal.com profile] lunik_the_bard and I watched the entire back half in under a day and a half. It was. Huh. IT WAS INTENSE. (And possibly I talked too much and was a terrible houseguest. I'm sorry, Lunik.)

I'd read the whole manga before, but for some reason I'd forgotten (almost) everything about the Promised Day onwards.

My favourite characters are Scar, Winry (omg the Scar & Winry relationship is my favourite thing) and Ling/Greed. Greeling? THAT GUY. You know the one.


Voltron: Legendary Defender

Then I got home and basically inhaled all of the new (?) Voltron series. I need to stop watching things so fast, it's not great for me,  I can't connect to characters.

So basically my feelings right now boil down to LOOK AT THESE NERDS IN A ROBOT with bonus of Pidge, Shiro and Haggar being (unsurprisingly) my favourites. Science-y one, cyborg-y one* and witch-y one. Yup, I am predictable. I really like Allura a lot too! She tosses Shiro around like a sack of potatoes it's great.


I think I'd still rec both of those, in completely different ways. FMA is a lot darker and intense but very intricately plotted. Voltron has nerds in a castleship and Shiro's eyeliner.

Anyway. Talk to me?


* I will just say that if you want to rec me a piece of visual media and the words METAL ARM apply, use those words.
