Shipswap 2015

Dear [ profile] shipswap writer:

Thank you so much for making me something! I'm sure I'll love whatever you end up creating, but in general: I love ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocafic, and ridiculous AUs. I'm not super into angst, and I prefer fics where characters interact with people and do things over introspective character studies. I really, really, love tropes and clich├ęs, and totally ridiculous, over the top plots, the more shameless the better. I love first times, and secret relationships, and casual hookups, and partners, and ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships. I love people being in love without having to say it, and people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it, and ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person completely embarrasses themselves, and small gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to. Most of all, I love characters who are genuinely really into each other. I'm happy to read any rating; smut is welcome but absolutely not necessary, though for this particular exchange I do want fic where the characters actually hook up/are together in some way. (In other words: makeouts, please!)

My username is Zhailei on AO3. My official requests are for fic, but I'm happy to receive art treats if that's your jam.

Andromeda (Seamus Harper/Rommie)

My adorkable unrequited OTP! One of my (many!) favourite things about this pairing is how utterly, completely, 100% into Rommie Harper is. Also everything about her also being a ship and him being totally into that and also all the parts where he (virtually) goes inside her, and the way he literally created her and the way she completely trusts him. And when they went to Earth together and everyone thought they were dating! (That episode is my life, lbr.) And all the times when they fight/are annoyed at each other and make super amazing faces. I'd love some kind of action/adventure fic - maybe they have to go on a mission together, or are stuck on a planet, or alone on Andromeda or literally anything else where they're together and then maybe make out.

Big Time Rush (Kendall Knight/Lucy Stone, Logan Mitchell/Camille Roberts)

I love these two relationships, and anything featuring one or both of them would totally make my day. I adore the relationship between Logan and Camille, from Camille's crazy method acting to them being amazing and happy together to their whole 'we're broken up but still make out literally all the time' thing. (Actually, that last one was totally my favourite.) And I love the way Lucy played against Kendall from pretty much the moment she showed up; the way she challenges and fights and sparks with him, and the way they gradually come together.

I'd love anything set at pretty much any time in canon (or future!fic) for either of these (as far as Kendall/Lucy goes in later seasons, handwaving is a perfectly acceptable response). Anything from dating to casual hook-ups to full-blown relationships would be fantastic, and I adore the entire ensemble, so including any of the other characters would be amazing. And ridiculous shenanigans of any type are always A+++.

Miss Match (Adam Logan/Kate Fox, Nick Paine/Victoria Carlson)

I love this fandom, and I would love any kind of fic written for it - gen or shippy, drama, comedy, crack, crossover, AU, whatever. Things I love the most include: The fact that every episode contains its very own miniature romantic comedy, hanging out at the bar, Kate in matchmaking mode, first dates, blind dates, not-a-date dates, anything and everything where characters interact with each other. I'd particularly love anything in the style of the show - that is to say, something romantic comedy-ish - but I'd be just as happy to read something plotty, or dramatic, or smutty, or anything else you could possibly write.

As far as ships go, these two are my super favourite. For Adam/Kate, I'd particularly love post-series fic where he keeps pursuing her, and where she (reluctantly) falls for him (especially if their relationships with Michael somehow stay intact). I also love, love Nick/Victoria, so anything about them would be fantastic - Hookups at the bar? Sexy roommates with benefits? Mutually being in denial about the fact they they're totally (still) dating?

The Dark Knight Legacy (John Blake/Stephanie Brown)

I came out of The Dark Knight Rises really wanting John Blake and Stephanie Brown to meet. AND THEN SOMEBODY MADE THIS AND IT'S LIKE IT WAS JUST FOR ME. I love the concept of Blake being Nightwing instead of jumping straight into replacing Batman, and the introduction of Red Hood and Penguin, and Steph being a cop - and since we won't be getting a continuation of the series, I desperately want to see what happens next. (Do Steph and Nightwing work together, or do they sometimes end up clashing? Is Arthur Brown still Cluemaster? Does Batman need a Robin? A Batgirl? Does he decide to take up the mantle of Batman and pass Nightwing onto her? Make up anything, tell me about it!)

Justice League Dark (Comics) (John Constantine/Zatanna Zatara)

I've been loving Constantine and Zatanna's relationship, from their backstory with Nick Necro to modern-day kick-ass magical OTP to their current 'one of us has to forget our love to save the universe' angst fest. I'd love more of absolutely any of that - Justice League Dark is one of the few parts of the New 52 I've really been enjoying, so an ensemble fic would also be more than welcome; I'd love anything from a missing scene to a new magical adventure to full-blown epic shippiness.

Teen Titans (Comics) (Dick Grayson/Rose Wilson, Kon-El/Rose Wilson, Dick Grayson/Donna Troy)

Pre-reboot, please! I love Dick's relationship with Rose in canon, particularly during the Renegade arc of Nightwing. I'd love to see more set during that time, or reuniting later on. I love Dick training her, and helping her to be a good person, and most of all teaching her that somebody does care for her, and I love Rose being snarky and full of attitude and perving on him shamelessly.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Rose and Kon, particularly during the end run of Teen Titans, and I'm disappointed that we never got to see the progression of that relationship. I'd love to see any continuation of that - Rose in a towel! Rose being provocative and Conner being embarrassed! Rose literally having his heart! (Which is also the way to kill him. Um.)

I love how Dick and Donna are often the older brother and sister of the group, and mostly I adore them as friends, but there's this bit in Trinity where they lost their memories/are AU versions of themselves and I really wanted those versions to make out? But I kind of want the regular versions of them to make out also while leading the team or having adventures or relaxing with pizza and a movie, so: Really anything would be fantastic!
