Rare Pair Fest 2015

Dear [ profile] rarepairfest author:

Thank you so much for writing me a fic! I'm sure it's going to be amazing, and I'm so looking forward to reading it. These are some ideas/extra information/things that would make me especially happy, but if my optional details don't work for you, or if you already have an idea in mind, I'd much rather get a great story you're really excited about than something mediocre tailored exactly to my requests.

You can find me on AO3 as Zhailei.

Favourite things in general:

  • Ensemble fics, banter, makeouts, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, casefic, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocalypses (zombie or otherwise), and ridiculous AUs.

  • Tropes and clich├ęs - fake dating, forced proximity, trapped together, sharing a bed, accidental marriage, bachelor auctions, truth or dare, sex pollen, accidental stimulation, wall!sex, frottage, etc. The more shameless the better!

  • First times, secret relationships, casual hookups, ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships.

  • People being in love without having to say it, people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it, ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person (willingly) completely embarrasses themselves, and small gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to.

  • Characters who are genuinely really into each other.

  • Characters actually hooking up, please! Porn is absolutely welcome (though if you could throw at least a tiny bit of plot in there, that would be fantastic).

  • Things I'd prefer not to receive:

  • Angst, darkfic, and unhappy endings.

  • Introspective character studies, alternate POV on canon events, or other fics where nothing much actually happens.

  • First person POV.

  • Character bashing.

  • Issue fic.

  • Genderswap.

  • Batman (Comics) (Stephanie Brown/Bruce Wayne)

    I both love and hate Steph's relationship with Bruce in canon; I'm endlessly frustrated by all the times he implies or outright tells her she isn't good enough to be a superhero, but I adore their team-ups, from Steph's time as Spoiler to Robin to Batgirl. (Batgirl!Steph is my favourite, but I'd love something set during her time as Robin or Spoiler, too.) I love the way Steph brings a bit of much-needed levity, and the way Batman actively seeks that out and appreciates that in her. I would also totally be on board with a dirtybadwrong d/s approach, because there are never enough of those.

    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+++.

    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.

    Samurai Flamenco (Gotou Hidenori/Maya Mari)

    So many reasons why I love this pairing. Mari's uniform fetish! The way Goto took her in after her encounter with torture king! When she tracks him down to tell him to stop texting his dead girlfriend! There are so many things I'd want for this, from adorable domestic fluff when she's living with him to dirtybadwrong fic where he punishes her for using him and his uniform to fic where Mari's performing or fighting bad guys and Goto is also there and then they hook up for ~reasons.

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

    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.)
