Dear Yuletide Writer 2017


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: [archiveofourown.org profile] 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.

[Prompts to be expanded as soon as I can.]
[EDIT OCTOBER 15: Prompts added. Sorry for the delay.]


Campaign (Podcast) (Bacta (Star Wars: Campaign Podcast), Lyntel'luroon (Campaign), Tamlin Jorun)

Short version: Teenage clone dad, action archeologist aunt, Force sensitive five year old who is also a noir PI. Gen adventures!

Long version:
The canon: This is a podcast set in the Star Wars universe, about five years after Revenge of the Sith. It's actual play, meaning that you listen to a bunch of people play the Star Wars RPG. Each episode is about an hour. The story follows the crew of the Mynock as they flee the Empire and attempt to raise a Force-sensitive five year old. It's free online here.

The prompts: I love everything about these three. Tamlin narrating à la noir movie outloud is AMAZING and I wish it showed up more. More archeology adventures funtimes with Lyn! With her teaching Tamlin maths, why not teach him archeology as well? And you know Bacta is going to need to teach the kid how to use a lightsaber. How did Bacta end up in that prison in the prologue? I would love to hear about the three of them working on an episode of their podcast.


Cleverman (Alinta West, Latani (Cleverman) )

Short version: Teen girls on the run for the dad of one of them. I ship them. Please let them be happy.

Long version:
The canon: Cleverman is an Australian TV show. It currenly has two seasons of 6 episodes each, with episodes being around 50 minutes. The story is set in an alternatr Australia, in which the Hairy people became known sometime back. This has caused racial tensions and the creation of a Zone by the Australian government to park Hairy people in and genetic screening. Also, there are ghosts and superpowers!

The prompts: I'd love futurefic where everything is okay and they're happy, either because the government got its shit together ethics-wise or because the two of them made it out somewhere. Maybe an AU in which things never went wrong. Angst related to the fact that Alinta's dad is the one hunting Latani's people would be great or about how Alinta sacrificed her freedom for Latani.


Locke & Key (Any of: Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke, Lucas "Dodge" Caravaggio )

Short version: Two teens and the eldritch horror one of them dated. Worldbuilding.

Long version:
The canon: This is a finished horror comic. It has 37 issues, collected in 6 tpbs. Following the brutal murder of the father, the family moves back to his childhood home, Keyhouse, in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. To say more would spoil it. It goes through a bunch of different kinds of horror as it makes it way through the intricate plot.

The prompts: I would love worldbuilding fic and if you have to go canon-divergent AU or future!fic or past!fic (is that a thing? It should be a thing) to do it, then go right ahead. I would love fic that explore more mundane uses for the Keys or explains what this-or-that Key that never got used in canon does. Or make up an entirely new one! Or write about the Lovecraft psychiatrist (because SO MUCH THERAPY is needed, by pretty much everyone at every point) that somehow everyone tells the truth to and so has to deal with Lovecraftian terrors on their couch. An AU in which they use the Keys to be superheroes!


Marvel Secret Wars Battleworlds (Victor von Doom | God-Emperor Doom, Valeria Richards | Head of the Foundation)

Short version: A mad scientist who became a god and his daughter who is a science genius. SCIENCE! Worldbuilding.

Long version:
The canon: The nine issues miniseries from 2015 about the time the entire Marvel multiverse got destroyed and Doctor Doom made himself a god by saving what he could and turning into a patchwork universe, Battleworld.

The prompts: Anything expanding on Doom and Valeria and/or God Emperor and Head of the Foundation would be great. I also like Susan and Strange a lot, so you're welcome to include them. And of course worldbuilding would be AMAZING. There are hints Valeria knows something's off even before the ship crashes. Maybe she confronts Doom over it and things go differently? Future fic in which Battleworld remained and Doom gives Valeria the God Emperor/Ruler of Battleworld mantle.


Punic Wars RPF (Hannibal Barca (Punic Wars RPF), Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Maior (Punic Wars RPF) )

Short version: Ancient Mediterranean generals! I ship them. Please let them be happy.

Long version:
The canon: The Second Punic War is a war that is full to the brim with feats of badassery (the Crossing of the Alps, Cannae, the fall of Carthago Nova) and things ridiculous, yet epic (Archimedes' death lasers). There's a movie starring Alexander Siddig as Hannibal for the war itself and Extra Credit: Extra History: The Punic Wars for the war and some more context, both before and after. Polybius can be found on Project Gutenberg, Perseus and Wikisource, as can Livy.

The prompts: An AU in which they're somehow on the same side (whichever). The Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS OK). IN SPAAAAAAAAAACE AU. Hannibal wins AU. He's a Carthaginian general sworn never to be a friend to Rome, he's a Roman general trying to avenge his father's death by Carthaginians, TOGETHER THEY FIGHT CRIME. I ship them, but you can totally go gen or with other ships instead, idc. Hannibal/Maharbal? Yes. Aemilia/Scipio? Also there. Ditto Aemilia/Scipio/Hannibal.



Unbelievable Gwenpool (Gwen Poole (Unbelievable Gwenpool) )

Short version: Girl transported to her favourite fictional universe who became a superhero! I ship her with Sarah (Terrible Eye). Friendship fic.

Long version:
The canon: A mostly self-contained Marvel comic about a girl from a world much like outs who got transported into her comics. She models herself after the most popular character, Deadpool -- the only way not to die is to set herself up as a main character, because everyone else is just cannon fodder, right? And then she makes friends with a bunch of misfits.

The prompts: Team fic! Friendship fic! Mostly here for friendships and shenanigans, honestly. If I ship Gwen with anyone, it's with Sarah, but friendship between them is also supercool! Maybe bonding with Vincent the Doombot? What about exploring one of the weird holidays in that one issue? What about Gwen's early days? How did she meet Ronnie? Futurefic! Maybe they save the world!


Thank you so much for writing for me!

Dear Star Wars Rare Pairs Sith

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: [archiveofourown.org profile] 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.  (I requested fanfiction only because while I really really love art and vids, I don't know how to prompt for them.)

Exchange specific DNWs: AUs not set in the Star Wars Universe (other times and/or places in the Star Wars universe are fine). My only exception to this are AUs set during the Second Punic War.

I'm requesting a bunch of aliens -- and human-looking people from a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, so who's to say how human they are? -- please feel free to make them as alien as you want. Alien biology! Alien psychology! Alien cultures! Alien aliens!

Go ahead and mix-n-match prompts from various pairings or use prompts from one for another or go completely off-prompt if you want!

Ahsoka Tano/Asajj Ventress
Antagonistic femslash and/or post-s5 reluctant allies femslash. AU in which Ventress is a Jedi. Role-reversal AU -- Ventress as Anakin's apprentice, Ahsoka as Dooku's. Ventress and Fulcrum against the Empire!

CT-7567 | Rex/Rey
TRAGICALLY SEPARATED BY ONE LETTER OF THE ALPHABET! Time-travel! Freshly Knighted Jedi Rey in the Clone Wars/that one Captain under someone else's command. Jedi Rex/weird orphan from a desert planet. Cryo-frozen Rex being unfrozen by Rey the scavenger.

CT-7567 | Rex/Riyo Chuchi
I would love something set after "Trespass" or during the Clone Wars or during the Empire era. Role-reversal in which the clone army is made of tiny Pantorans and Rex is Senator for Mandalore (or Kamino, not picky).

Hera Syndulla/Maketh Tua
Canon-divergent AU where Tua makes it to the Rebellion. Hera seducing Tua for the Rebellion. Tua seducing Hera for the Empire. Those last two AT THE SAME TIME. Role reversal -- Tua leading the Rebel cell operating out of Ryloth.

Hera Syndulla/Thrawn | Mitth'raw'nuruodo
I really love the whole chess game/cat-and-mouse dynamic that they have. And Thrawn's weird obsession with Hera' family heirlooms. Hatesex! Role reversal AU! Maybe they have to go on a roadrip!

Jango Fett/Mace Windu
So I know they tried to kill each other in canon (and one of them succeeded), idc. Hatesex! Role reversal AU! Jedi/Mandalorian tension. Maybe they have to go on a roadrip! Maybe Mace went to Kamino circa AotC instead of Obi-Wan.

Jyn Erso/Mon Mothma
I've been shipping this since the first trailer. Mon's little smile when Jyn went "I rebel"! Anyway, what about a fix-it or maybe a canon-divergent AU. Undercover-as-Imperial!Jyn? Role reversal AU!

Jyn Erso/Rey
Timetravel! Canon-divergence! Battle-hardened Rebellion veteran and hero Jyn Erso giving Rey her kyber crystal pendant for Rey's saber. Stardust and the girl who dreams of stars. Jyn closes her eyes on Scarif and awakens on Jakku. Rey goes to visit Jedha's Holy City.

Jyn Erso/Sabine Wren
Come on, they're the same age and Sabine met Saw. No way have they not met in canon! They would get along famously. Explosions! Make-outs! Beating up Empire goons! Reunion circa-Rogue One. AU in with Jyn survives Scarif!

Ketsu Onyo/Sabine Wren
A long time ago, we used to be friends! Antagonistic femslash or something softer post-Ketsu joining the Rebellion (how'd that happen, btw?). Sabine's art ~feelings~ on any of this. Sabine painting Ketsu's armour.

Leia Organa/Sabine Wren
Young ladies of the Rebellion! Or old ladies of the Resistance. Possibly penpals, either way (with little drawings for each other). Sabine helping Leia setting up the New Republic. Senator Wren/General Organa.

Numa/Sabine Wren
Femslash where they bond over explosions and have betrayed each other for their own goals in the past! Plus I think that there could be something really interesting made out of Numa's relationship with the clones (Boil & Waxer) and Sabine's Mandalorian origin. But mostly explosions and make-outs.

Obi-Wan Kenobi/Asajj Ventress
Pretty sure the entirety of Ventress' interactions with Obi-Wan throughout Clone Wars were one very long Dathomirian courtship ritual, tbh. Clone Wars era hatesex. Post Revenge of the Sith slightly less hate-y sex. Reluctant allies having to work together (again)!

Obi-Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul
Mindgames on Mandalore! AU in which Maul is a Jedi. AU in which Obi-Wan is a Sith. Role reversal AU. Canon-divergent AU in which Obi-Wan doesn't throw Maul down a reactor in TPM and captures him for the Jedi instead. More awkward team-ups with Jedi, à la Twilight of the Apprentice. Cranky old men living on Tatooine -- Maul + Obi-Wan vs Vader on the Death Star!

Phasma/Rey
Antagonistic femslash! Or "Rey is evil" AUs or "Phasma is a Resistance spy" AUs. Role reversal AUs -- Rey the Stormtrooper, Phasma the Jedi-in-training. Phasma finding Rey on Jakku. Phasma leading Rey's interrogation on Starkiller Base. Dramatic removal of masks!

Riyo Chuchi/Ahsoka Tano
They are SO CUTE together, aww. More detective-y team-ups. Fall out from the bombing arc. Riyo being one of Fulcrum's contacts in the Senate -- or Fulcrum having to save the non-Human Sentors because, unfortunately, Palpatine.

Riyo Chuchi/Asajj Ventress
Kidnapping for ransom! Reluctant allies fighting against the Empire! AU in which Riyo is a Jedi! Or in which she's a Sith. Senator Asajj Ventress of Dathomir! (She would be a horrible Senator, it would be hilarious.)

Riyo Chuchi/Mon Mothma
The beginnings of the Rebellion! The later years of the Rebellion -- maybe something set post-Rogue One? I've always wondered how someone could be both an Imperial Senator and a Rebel. How does that even work, schedule-wise?

Steela Gerrera/Ahsoka Tano
AU in which Steela survives. Maybe her brother dies instead, idk. Threesome resolution to the love triangle with Lux. Role reversal -- Jedi Steela helping Togruta insurgents! Secretly Force-sensitive Steela!


Thank you so much for writing for me!

Things to look forward to

In no particular order.

New music:

HOLY FUCK AFTER 10 FUCKING YEARS MC SOLAAR'S FINALLY GOT A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT It comes out on Nov 3. The single is Sonotone -- I honestly believe the man is the best living French lyricist. Sonotone ends on a line that echoes this Gainsbourg song, itself referencing this Verlaine poem. Like. Damn. It's also got the line "Dévertébrer les verbes de toutes mes lèvres" which is a fucking masterclass in internal rhyming.

I am also looking forward to Taylor Swift's new album (Nov 10). Although, if I'm honest I'm mostly looking forward to the new music video. Look What You Made Me Do confirmed what I suspected since Blank Space: that even though her music can be hit or miss for me, I fucking love her aesthetic and sense of humour.

Technically Nolwenn Leroy's new album is already out, but I've only listened to the eponymous single, Gemme so far.


TV:

NEW FORCES OF DESTINY (Oct 1 and 29) and then new Rebels season. Also, is that Sabine and Jyn interacting in that trailer? Yessssssssss


Halloween:

HALLOWEEN

Trick or Treat 2017 Letter (The Female Mad Scientists Edition)

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: [archiveofourown.org profile] 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.  (I request fanfiction only because while I really really love art, I don't know how to prompt for it.)


My theme this year is "female mad scientists" (for given values of "mad", "scientist" and "mad scientist"), but please don't feel as though mad science has to be the be-all and end-all of what you make me.


Campaign (Podcast) (Lyntel'luroon (Star Wars: Campaign Podcast))

I am up to date on the show and will remain so. Feel free to set things at any time in canon or pre-canon or post-canon (or in a canon-divergent AU).

I ship Lyn with just about everyone female in the galaxy far far away (Lyn/Avaa! Lyn/Fentara! Lyn/Vous-vous!), but I think my favourite relationship is her mentoring Tamlin.

Lyn going on more archeology adventures. Lyn backstory (with the band or not). Lyn future-fic (with her future-wife?) -- what will Lyn do once she's collected the entire Journal of the Whills?


Critical Role (Web Series) (Anna Ripley, Raishan (Critical Role) )

I'm not (yet) up to date on the show, but I am caught up on everything involving both Ripley and Raishan and don't mind spoilers. Feel free to set things at any time in canon or pre-canon or post-canon (or in a canon-divergent AU).

I ship both of them with Percy and Keyleth -- not necessarily all at once! But if you want to write Ripley/Percy/Keyleth/Raishan, that would be amazing -- and with each other. Female mad scientists in love!

I'd love to read about Ripley's quest for the Vestiges or how and why she mad her deal with Orthax or Ripley (+ the Briarwoods?) backstory.

What was Raishan's plan to deal with Thordak without Vox Machina? Raishan vs Vecna! (I'm not a big fan of Raishan-pretending-to-be-Assum, btw.)


DC Cinematic Universe
(Isabel Maru (DC Cinematic Universe) )

Wonder Woman is the only movie I have seen in the DC Cinematic Universe, but I don't mind spoilers for the others. Feel free to set things at any time in the movie or pre-movie or post-movie (or in a canon-divergent AU).

I want to know all about how Dr Maru was able to have notes on Uunhexium in (mostly) Neo-Assyrian Cuneiform. I totally ship her with Diana, btw. Post-movie shipfic?


Marvel 616 (Valeria Richards (Marvel 616) )

I've read most of the comics involving her. Her age/timeline is a bit of a mess, so feel free to set things whenever and make her whatever age you want.

I would love to see her bond with her godfather, Victor von Doom -- or with Verity Willis (Val was adorable in Agent of Asgard). Something set during Secret Wars would be great. BUILDING MORE FANNISH STUFF LIKE LIGHTSABERS! (Valeria vs fandom?


Voltron: Legendary Defender (Haggar (VLD) )

I am up to date on the show and will remain so. Feel free to set things at any time in canon or pre-canon or post-canon (or in a canon-divergent AU).

Ship-wise, I like Haggar/Allura, Haggar/Pidge and Haggar/Shiro and I'm intrigued by Haggar/Zarkon. I have no opinion on whether or not she is Lotor's mom or not (she could be Keith's mom, though, that'd be amazing).

Haggar is the mad scientist/space witch mash-up of my heart. I would love to know about how she structures her experiments, being a druid-engineer. Something where she's a double agent would be very interesting as would anything about her 10 000+ years of life -- what's it like living that long?

Thank you again for making something for me! (Comments welcome.)

Fandom 5k

I wrote a pinch-hit for [community profile] fandom5k.
Pocketful of stories (5031 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types, Star Wars Original Trilogy
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Ahsoka Tano, Padmé Amidala
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Worldbuilding, Folklore
Summary: Ahsoka travelled the galaxy, collecting tales and sowing revolution along the way.

I had a lot of fun coming up with the various folktales intersped in this.

All the planets/people have different ways of framing stories.
  • Stories from Naboo start with either "Once upon a time, above wave, below stars" for the Gungan stories and "Once upon a time, below stars" for the non-Gungan stories.
  • Stories on Alderaan start with "Long ago on Alderaan" and by giving the main character's relationship to Queenship.
  • Stories on Pantora start with "When yesterday was yet to be" and end with a bracketed statement including the phrase "Do not believe them." -- they refute other versions of the story.
  • Clone stories are much more informal in tone and start with "They say this is a true story".
  • Ykobar stories start with "There was a time" which is a literal translation of the French "Il était une fois", the traditional start to a fairytale. They end in "The tale still goes on and is only just beginning".
The stories of the Kermor are variations on the tale of the city of Ys -- the word Kermor itself is made up of two Breton words, "ker" (meaning "a place where people live") and "mor" (meaning "sea"). I was originally going to go with "Morvac'h" ("Horse of the sea") -- especially given that it's part of some versions the Ys legend and can be a war omen -- but ultimately decided against it. The c'h sound tends to be confusing for people unfamiliar with Breton; it's a voiceless velar fricative -- the same sound as in loch.

I didn't sign up for [community profile] fandom5k because I didn't know if I would have time -- and I kind of ran out of time on this pinch-hit a bit -- but I should have signed up if I was going to end up writing for it anyway. Then again, given my computer issues, I wouldn't have been able to comment until yesterday/today, which seems like a dick move. Not that could have known either of those things at the time. What I'm trying to say is that I'll sign up next year.

Maythe4th works

I got two fics and made 3 works.


The two fics I got were both femslash.

Sometimes I request stuff in exchanges that I don't think I'll get, just because maybe I will and this time I did! It's Force-ghost!Jyn/Rey and it's really sweet.







Of the three works I made, two are art (both femslash) and one is fic (maleslash).

Summary: Oil on paper, 30cmx42cm


An oil painting. I can't be having with those newfangled Photoshoppe /joke

It took me about 8 hours to paint this. 2h+ for the background alone, about as much for the lineart/making sure the composition worked, and the rest on the figures. I haven't done oil in aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages and I was never really good at it, it shows somewhat.

People seemed to like it though, so yay! (Gifting art is so stressful, omg! Have you seen the art in this exchange?)

Merfilly's "size difference" prompt was super inspiring, ngl!

So inspiring that I forgot to check if the letter had DNWs that the sign-up did not. SPOILERS: It did, but I asked through the mods if the deathfic DNW extended to "implied/allegorical representations of canonical character death in art", and was told it was fine. Which is good, because it's quite hard to switch tracks on an oil painting halfway through.

The beam of green light in the background is the Death Star laser. It is of course Deeply Symbolic that it goes through Jyn and not Mon, just as it is Deeply Symbolic that the direction of Jyn's gaze lines up with it. Jyn facing her death head-on was one of my favourite bits of the movie.

This was my back up in case I didn't manage to finish the oil painting in time. Pencil sketches coloured in markers, then cleaned up and recoloured in GIMP.


I should have tagged both of these as "fanart" instead of "art" from the start. Lesson learned for next time. (Wish I knew how to post fullsize art on tumblr as 'top' image /is a Fandom Old, cannot Tumbl with the Cool Kids)

Also, Pairing names with both slash and pipes are lolarious.

Star Wars Rolling Remix reveals

I wrote the starter story for [community profile] starwarsrollingremix . It was then remixed in three different directions. I originally tried to arrange the remix so it'd finish before Night on Fic Mountain started, but oops.

Between the Devil and the Dust (7296 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Star Wars Original Trilogy
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Rey (Star Wars), Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker
Additional Tags: Time Loop, Time Travel, The Force
Summary: Tatooine is not Jakku is not Tatooine. And yet.
In which Rey, Anakin and luke go on a roadtrip through the desert because The Force.

Origianlly I started writing this as an experiment in characterisation: "Compare and contrast the protags of the Star wars trilogies!" Specifically Anakin and Rey; they're very similar but they do have their differences. When I decided to use this as the starter for the remix, I did so because the involvement of all three of them made it easy for the fic to be remixed in a lot of directions/the remixers wouldn't be stuck in one trilogy. I deliberately left some of the Luke stuff obscure as a hook for remixes, actually -- which nobody used. Luke never says he forgot any of it!

It's an odd fic to describe.

On a surface level it is about a roadtrip and about 50% landscapeporn by volume. On a slightly deeper level, it's about all of them acting as each other's -- spirit guides isn't quite the right word -- catalyst to a shift in their connection with the Force (for Rey it's her "Awaken[ing]", for Anakin it's "the first step [he] took on the road to being Darth Vader").

On an even deeper level it's about what the Force actually is. This fic wouldn't look the way it does without Rogue One and the way everyone just starts dying as soon as their part is done -- the Force doesn't need them anymore.
Rey said, "Did you really expect the Force to be kind?"

"Does the desert care about the grain of sand? Does the ocean care about the wave? Does the night sky care about the star? No. Why then should the Force care for any individual life?" Rey spoke, and the words tumbled out of her mouth without her knowing where they came from. "Some are brighter or best beloved or chosen, but in the end the storm comes, the dawn rises and the wave must break."

I should also thank [tumblr.com profile] lunikus for letting ramble at length about this and helping me solve some of the issues with it.

Worldbuilding exchange reveals!

As I said, I wrote three fics for [community profile] worldbuildingex : an assignment, a pinch-hit and a treat.


Every Heart That Beats For Liberty (4081 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, Major Character Death

Characters: Jyn Erso, K-2SO (Star Wars), Ensemble (Rogue One)
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, canon typical level of Rock Falls Everybody Dies
Summary: When she was seventeen, Jyn Erso came to Jedha. When she was twenty-one, she died there.

LOOK I'M NOT SAYING THIS FIC IS BASICALLY "JYN ERSO, THE CAST OF ROGUE ONE AND THE CITY OF JEDHA DO THE PARIS COMMUNE"... but this fic is basically "Jyn Erso, the cast of Rogue One and the city of Jedha do the Paris Commune".

As befits a story about both Rogue One and the Paris Commune, everybody dies -- in the same way they die in Rogue One, even.

This assignment was enormous amounts of fun to write and the entire last scene was written in a kind of fugue state. This is the fic I mean when I said one of them was "glaringly, obviously mine": Paris Commune! Super strong friendships! Doing the right thing because it's the right thing to do! Tragedy! The difference between peace and justice!

Dear Nigh on fic Mountain Creator

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: [archiveofourown.org profile] 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.  (I request fanfiction only because while I really really love art, I don't know how to prompt for it.)


Ancient History RPF (Hannibal Barca & Scipio Africanus)

I have a MASSIVE thing for enemies who care about and respect each other and those two hit it IN SPADES. Feel free to have them meet at times they haven't (as far as we know) met, like after Cannae or Zama. Anything expanding on the meeting at Ephesus would also be brilliant. I am, always and forever, of the opinion that they both faked their own deaths to elope together. The AU in which they're both Roman! Or both Carthaginian! The AU in which they switch places. The AU in which it is a Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS). An AU in which the war goes differently -- maybe Rome surrenders after Cannae. Slavish devotion to historical accuracy not required! I'm looking for fic, not a research paper. (The tag for this fandom is here.)


Campaign (Podcast) (Any of: Tamlin Jorun, Bacta (Campaign), Synox, Avaa Arek, Lyntel’luroon)

I LOVE THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL SPACE FAMILY WITH ALL MY HEART (Also, when Lyn got confirmed as canonically queer I texted a friend immediately -- she is is the queer alien Indiana Jones of my heart. MORE LYN ON SPACE ARCHEOLOGY ADVENTURES!) Tamlin is THE CUTEST and the Tamlin-narrated noir episodes are probably my favourites -- I have a very real weakness for noir. Bacta is very good at giving me clone feelings (and lol forever at the "I like your voice" exchange with Zevowk). Also, the "Bacta Basics" podcast totally exists in-universe; what's not to love about a fact-based podcast ran by fugitives from the Empire. Leenik's friendship with Avaa is endlessly charming (her and Zero is also A++). I would love something about Synox and the animated program he's on -- wait. What if Tamlin's a fan? (The tag for this is my general Star Wars tag.)


Yoko Tsuno (Comics) (Yoko Tsuno/Khany)

I'd love something about how Khany and Yoko keep being ultimate-long-distance (girl)friends! Role reversal AU! Khany the human, Yoko the Vinean. A canon-divergent AU in which the Vineans didn't leave Earth and/or went public over their own existence. Fix-it for Le dragon de Hong Kong. Timetravel! 100% guaranteed Vinea has the tech somewhere and why should Yoko get all the fun? Vinea (and surrounding space) travelogue. Something about the telepathic communication headbands malfunctionning, be that losing all communication or amplifying too much communications. Vinea and Earth vs The Galactic Empire (or other bad guys). AU in which Yoko is trapped on Vinea. Also I like the robots. (My tag for this fandom is here.)


Thank you again for writing for me! (Comments welcome.)

Stuff and whatnot

.It's that time of the year again! As readers of this journal may know, I mod several fanwork exchanges. The biggest of those, [community profile] nightonficmountain , just opened nominations. There may be venting (most likely under-lock) because let me tell you, I have not missed the ao3 nomination approval interface and especially not its tendency to throw 404s at me when I've just validated a bunch of noms, aaaaaaaargh. /the glamorous life of a fandom mod



I've seen a bunch of movies lately I haven't talked about on here -- and should -- Arrival (Hollywood scifi), Patients (French slice-of-life/biography) and Hidden Figures/Les Figures de l'ombre (US Historical) all of which were good.

I also saw Logan. Look. I have been for X-23 on the big screen for literally over a decade. I cannot overstate this: the very first time X-23 appeared, in a season 3 episode of X-Men:Evolution, I was sitting in front of my TV going "SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST". Based on that, you'd think I would have had high expectations for this movie, but the thing is, I didn't, mostly because I didn't believe it was actually real. Like. There's an X-23 movie????? Is this the real life? But I have to say this was an awesome X-23 movie. Also SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST.

Unfortunately, Palpatine.

I'm becoming increasingly convinced that everything that goes wrong in Star Wars can be summed up as "Unfortunately, Palpatine.". Yes, that's the whole explanation.

Dath Maul? Unfortunately, Palpatine.
Dooku? Unfortunately, Palpatine.
Darth Vader? Unfortunately, Palpatine.
Death Star blows up Alderaan? Unfortunately, Palpatine.
First Order blowing up Hosnian Prime? Unfortunately, Palpatine.

This realisation brought to you by the realisation that it's pretty much how I plan my Star Wars fic: how's Palpatine going to fuck shit up this time? Even when he's not there on-screen, he's always there in the background, lurking. /is currently in the Unfortunately, Palpatine part of the Fake Dating FOR GREAT JUSTICE fic

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.


Leia Organa/Sabine Wren

Young Rebels in love! Contrast between Leia being a Rebels pretty much since birth and Sabine being a former Imperial cadet. The story of how Sabine's starbird became the symbol of the Rebellion. Sabine in General Organa's Resistance! Senators Wren and Organa of Mandalore and Alderaan.


Phasma/Rey

F/F SIZE DIFFERENCE! I'm totally down for both Phasma being human and her not being -- likewise, her being undercover Resistance, or not. Canon compliance and canon divergence also both great. Role reversal AU! Rey in the First Order. Phasma in the Resistance.


Rey & Anakin Skywalker

TERRIFYINGLY POWERFUL ANGRY DESERT CHILDREN! I love both Rey and Anakin so hard and I love all the parallels between them. Time-travel! Canon-divergent AUs! Force ghosts! Rey as Anakin's padawan! Roleswap, Rey as Obi-Wan's padawan, Anakin as the Jakku orphan. Straight-up reincarnation fic.


Rey & Darth Maul

Given that Maul has more lives than a cat, I bet he's still around circa TFA. Honestly, I love Maul's kindly old man/hilarious asshole thing he's got going in Rebels and I feel like giving Rey a morally grey mentor would be interesting. Not to mention he wields a saberstaff -- their partnership/mentorship/apprenticeship is meant to be!


Rey/CT-7567 | Rex

TRAGICALLY SEPARATED BY ONE LETTER OF THE ALPHABET :( But seriously I feel like they have a lot in common. They both are extremely loyal, for example. Rex's animosity and Rey's kindness towards droids could make for an interesting contrast. Time travel would be awesome -- Rey would adopt all of the battledroids, hahaha.


Rey/Jyn Erso

Timetravel! Canon-divergence! Battle-hardened Rebellion veteran and hero Jyn Erso giving Rey her kyber crystal pendant for Rey's saber. Stardust and the girl who dreams of stars. Jyn closes her eyes on Scarif and awakens on Jakku. Rey goes to visit Jedha's Holy City.


Riyo Chuchi & Maketh Tua

A Galactic Republic Senator and an Imperial Minister walk into a bar... I'm super curious what became of Chuchi after the Empire happened and I am also super curious how Tua got where she did. Maybe a fix-it in which Tua doesn't die? If you feel like making this Riyo Chuchi/Maketh Tua instead, that's cool with me.


Riyo Chuchi & Mon Mothma

The beginnings of the Rebellion! The later years of the Rebellion -- maybe something set post-Rogue One? I've always wondered how someone could be both an Imperial Senator and a Rebel. How does that even work, schedule-wise? Again, would also be cool with Riyo Chuchi/Mon Mothma.


Riyo Chuchi/CT-7567 | Rex


Chuchi's drive to the right thing is really impressive and matches Rex's -- and since it's a plotpoint in "Trespass" that recognises the personhood of people others might not, it'd make sense she'd see the clones as people. And Rex seriously needs a hug. The fallout from "Trespass" -- or a missing scene -- could be super interesting, but so could something set at another time.


Sabine Wren/Numa

I would love something dealing with Sabine's art. Maybe she completes Numa's armour. I like that Sabine and Numa fall into "the enemy of my enemy" but that doesn't mean they're above taking each other out for the cause. They have a mutual love for explosions and fuck up the Empire's shit!


Thank you again so much for writing for me!

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.

Campaign (Podcast) (Any of: Bacta/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Bacta/Zevowc, Leenik Geelo & Avaa Arek, Leenik Geelo/Tryst Valentine, Lyntel'luroon & Bacta, Lyntel'luroon & Tamlin Jorun, Lyntel'luroon/Aava Arek, Lyntel'luroon/Bacta, Lyntel'luroon/Bacta/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Lyntel'luroon/Grizelle Jorun, Lyntel'luroon/Original Female Character, Lyntel'luroon/Original Princess Character, Lyntel'luroon/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Lyntel'luroon/Zara "Princess" Zoisite, Pepper Tupp & Pine Coneman, Sneak/Tubaik, Tamlin Jorun & Bacta, Tamlin Jorun & Tony Vornskr)

I LOVE THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL SPACE FAMILY WITH ALL MY HEART (Also, when Lyn got confirmed as canonically queer I texted a friend immediately -- she is is the queer alien Indiana Jones of my heart.)

Tamlin is THE CUTEST; and the Tamlin-narrated noir episodes are probably my favourites -- I have a very real weakness for noir. Bacta is very good at giving me clone feelings (and lol forever at the "I like your voice" exchange with Zevowk). Leenik's friendship with Avaa is endlessly charming. BASICALLY I LIKE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood & Manga (Greed (Ling) & Ling Yao (Manga), Paninya & Winry Rockbell (Manga), Winry Rockbell & Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist) (Manga) )

The relationship between Greed and Ling is fascinating and I would totally be up for fix-it, if that strikes your fancy. Tbh, I started shipping Winry/Paninya the moment Winry started gushing about the craft of Paninya's automail. Winry + Scar is the FMA relationship I wish we'd seen SO MUCH MORE of -- it's so complex and human and lovely.


Historical RPF (Hannibal Barca/Scipio Africanus)

I have a MASSIVE thing for enemies who care about and respect each other and those two hit it IN SPADES.

Feel free to have them meet at times they haven't (as far as we know) met, like after Cannae or Zama. Anything expanding on the meeting at Ephesus would also be brilliant. I am, always and forever, of the opinion that they both faked their own deaths to elope together. The AU in which they're both Roman! Or both Carthaginian! The AU in which they switch places. The AU in which it is a Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS). An AU in which the war goes differently -- maybe Rome surrenders after Cannae. Slavish devotion to historical accuracy not required! I'm looking for fic, not a research paper.


Locke & Key (Any of: Kinsey Locke & Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke & Jordan Gates, Kinsey Locke/Dodge, Kinsey Locke/Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke/Jordan Gates)

ALL THE FIX-IT FICS. So you know the part where Kinsey suggests going to prom with Jackie? YEAH. I'd love for Jordan and Kinsey to start their one good action a day club. Also I love the worldbuilding in this series.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) (Jyn Erso/Mon Mothma (Rogue One) )

I've been shipping this since the first trailer. Mon's little smile when Jyn went "I rebel"! Anyway, what about a fix-it or maybe a canon-divergent AU. Undercover-as-Imperial!Jyn? Role reversal AU!


Star Wars: Rebels (Numa/Sabine Wren (Rebels) )

Femslash where they bond over explosions and have betrayed each other for their own goals in the past! Plus I think that there could be something really interesting made out of Numa's relationship with the clones (Boil & Waxer) and Sabine's Mandalorian origin. But mostly explosions and make-outs.


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types (Padmé Amidala & Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars), Padmé Amidala/Riyo Chuchi (Clone Wars), Plo Koon & CC-3636 | Wolffe (Clone Wars), Plo Koon/CC-3636 | Wolffe (Clone Wars), Riyo Chuchi/Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars), Steela Gerrera/Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars) )

I really enjoyed all the politics episodes in Clone Wars, and not just because they featured Padmé. I just enjoy fictional power games a lot. I love both Padmé and Riyo Chuchi a lot! Either/both of them (plus Ahsoka?) being friends and doing politics and/or investigating a crime would be cool. I really love Ahsoka too! Her and Steela would be an awesome couple -- maybe future fic circa Rogue One? The relationship between Plo Koon and Wolfee, be it shippy or gen, gets me right in the clone feelings.

Also. Dude. WRITING IN BLOOD. Creepy. Quit it.


The Librarians: S03E04: The twist was quite well done, even though I guessed most of it ahead of time. I VASTLY prefer Jenkins to Flynn. And awwwwwwwwwwww the Library cares!


Legends of Tomorrow: S02E07: Have not caught up.


NOT CURRENTLY AIRING

Luke Cage: S1E010: No progress.

Miraculous Ladybug: S01E17 and S01E18: I was very surprised that the teenaged goth's supervillainous (semi-idealised?) villainous alter ego was wearing a bright hot oink tutu and heels, up until there was aline from someone else saying similar to "I don't know how much longer I stand to stay in this body" which huh. Okay. It makes some sort of sense now as a dysporia thing. *reads too much into things* Also, I was suprisingly into girl!Chat Noir/Ladybug. Show remains very cute.

Nirvana in Fire: E06: Have made no progress.


I am also watching the series finale of Person of Interest on TV. SPOILERS I am oddly disappointed that not everybody died -- idk, I was looking forward to some prime "heroic sacrifice falls, everybody dies" stuff. There was some heroic sacrifice but not all and it's just not the same, man. I might feel different if I was more attached to the characters. Then again, I might not. IDK OKAY. Apparently lately I can only enjoy two sorts of media: all of the tragedy and none of the tragedy. Very Specific Levels Of Sadness. Heh. There's always Rogue One, hopefully. END SPOILERS


And now I am writing ALL THE YULETIDE.

[archiveofourown.org profile] isaakfvkampfer translated Five people on StarKiller Base who didn't listen to Anakin Skywalker (and one who did) into Chinese / 中文 as [Translation]弑星者基地上不愿听安走天说话的五人(还有个真听了).

I ran the the whole thing through google translate and my favourite thing is the way Anakin's "Way harsh, dude" became "This is a bit too much, man". (Also, if I understand the question in the ending notes properly, the answer is that it's not about Kylo Ren and it's never been about Kylo Ren -- it's always been about Anakin and his issues and Vader; Anakin is not the most reliable of narators.)
