Tag Exchange 2015

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. While my official requests are all for fic, I'm more than open to art treats in case that's something you'd like to do.


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.

  • Combining multiple tropes into one fic - yes, please!


  • 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.

  • Issue fic.

  • Genderswap.



  • Avalon High (Allie Pennington)

    Action/Adventure, Alternate Universe - Magical Girls, Identity Porn, Magical Artifacts, Monsters, Mythology, Post-Canon, Quests, Realm Hopping, Ritual Magic, Time Travel

    Okay, so: While I was watching this for the first time, I enjoyed it (mostly because of Britt Robertson's face, ngl), AND THEN THE ENDING HAPPENED AND IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS MOVIE 1000%. Basically this movie hit on some of my favourite tropes crazy hard, and I really just want more of any of that. I'd be equally happy to read something set in the 'real world' post-movie, or something that deals more with the mythological aspect of the story and characters (including past lives), or anything that blends the two.

    Pairing(s): Gen


    Big Time Rush (Lucy Stone, Katie Knight, Camille Roberts; group: James Diamond & Carlos Garcia & Kendall Knight & Logan Mitchell )

    Alternate Universe - Superheroes/Superpowers, Body Swap, Causal Time Loop, Comedy of Errors, Hijinks & Shenanigans, Rescue Missions, Secret Organisation, Spies & Secret Agents, Team Dynamics, Treasure Hunting, Undercover Missions, Zombie Apocalypse

    I love everyone on this show - ideally I would really love some kind of ensemble fic, if you're up to that, but I would also love pretty much any kind of fic about any or all of the characters in the show. I love Camille's craziness, and her method acting, and the way she absolutely is not shy about going after whatever she wants (especially when that something is Logan); I love Lucy's whole rocker chick thing and the way she makes Kendall's head explode and the way she notices but ultimately embraces the crazy; I love how Katie can accomplish pretty much anything she sets her mind to and generally just owns everyone else all the time. I love the four guys and their friendship and ridiculousness and stupid faces (<3), and the relationships between pretty much everybody, and the completely ridiculous tone of the show, so I'd love fic that embraces any or all of that.

    Pairing(s): Lucy/Kendall, Logan/Camille


    Bodacious Space Pirates (Katou Marika)

    Accidental Kidnapping, Action/Adventure, Causal Time Loop, Comedy of Errors, Crime Fighting, Hijinks & Shenanigans, Mistaken Identity, Oblivious to Relationship, Rescue Missions, Time Travel, Treasure Hunting

    I love this show so much. SPACE PIRATES!!!!, basically. I love Marika, and the yacht club and her space pirate crew; I love how she jumps into things headfirst and sometimes messes up but is actually a pretty decent captain; I love how her captaincy was passed down from her dad but the real legacy comes from her mum, who is super amazing. I also really love Chiaki and her accidental friendship with/crush on Marika, and I love it when her dad teases her about that <3 I'd love to read anything set during or post-canon, featuring the yacht club or the Bentenmaru crew or both, especially if it features more ridiculous space adventures and occasional piracy.

    Pairing(s): Marika/Chiaki


    DCU (Comics) (Rose Wilson, Stephanie Brown)

    Alien Invasion, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Alternate Universe - Magical Girls, Alternate Universe - Superheroes/Superpowers, Apocalypse, Causal Time Loop, Crime Fighting, Identity Porn, Monsters, Power Swap, Realm Hopping, Team Dynamics, Undercover Missions

    I have a strong preference for Batgirl-era Steph, though if you wanted to go way back and write Robin!Steph, I would be totally cool with that, as long as there's none of the part where everybody tells her she sucks and then Batman fires her. I love, love Batgirl!Steph, though, and what I would love most of all is more of that - the series ended far too soon, and there are so many adventures I would still love to see her have (anything from the end of the last issue would be amazing to read about, as would anything you can come up with on your own). I'm also totally cool with AUs and/or crossovers with other DC properties - what about the universe where Steph is a Green Lantern? The one where she's Nightwing? Where she's part of a team who love her and aren't jerks? Really, I just want lots and lots of Steph, so write anything about her at all and you can't possibly go wrong.

    Rose is another of my very favourite comics characters ever - I guess I have a thing for blondes with supervillain dads who nobody really believes can or should be superheroes. I love her attitude and her general badassery and the way she's combative and rage-y and sometimes struggles with being a superhero. I love how she flirts with basically everyone. I love how she started off as a bad guy trying to be her dad, and, yeah, sometimes she has a hard time not killing people. But she's trying. I particularly love pre-reboot Rose and her place in the Teen Titans, and her appearance in the Renegade arc of Nightwing was also super amazing, so anything set in either of those eras would be particularly fantastic. Also: I know Rose was super messed up and not really herself during the whole 'trying to be her dad' era, but HER EYE <3 <3 <3 I KNOW IT'S MESSED UP BUT IT'S POSSIBLY MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT HER. Because she's a badass and she has a ridiculous family background she's super messed up because of it, and all of that is so integral to who she is and I love every bit of it.

    [Tag Clarification: For Alternate Universe - Superheroes/Superpowers, I'd love something where they're different superheroes/joined different teams/have different powers, etc.]

    Pairing(s): Rose/Kon-El, Dick/Rose, Dick/Steph, Bruce/Steph, Gage/Steph


    Princess Protection Program (Carter Mason/Rosalinda Fiore)

    Accidental Kidnapping, Accidental Marriage, Accidental Soulbonding, Action/Adventure, Alternate Universe - Magical Girls, Crime Fighting, Fake Relationship, Groundhog Day, Hijinks & Shenanigans, Magical Artifacts, Marriage of Convenience, Quests, Rescue Missions, Road Trip, Secret Organisation, Secret Relationship, Spies & Secret Agents, Undercover Missions

    aka. The Demi/Selena AU Where Demi Is A Princess And Selena Is A High School Student And Then They Fall In Love. Or, that's pretty much the movie I was watching, anyway. Really anything would be awesome, set during the movie or afterwards, and I don't mind whether or not you choose to use the last scene where they join D.E.B.S. the Princess Protection Program. Carter and Rosie rescuing princesses together and maybe Rosie sometimes gets a little jealous because, hello, she knows Carter's type! PPP: The College Years! Adventures in Ruling a Country That is Not on Most Maps! Basically, anything at all would be completely awesome.


    Samurai Flamenco (Maya Mari)

    Action/Adventure, Alien Invasion, Alternate Universe - Magical Girls, Alternate Universe - Superheroes/Superpowers, Alternate Universe - Vampire Slayer, Apocalypse, Clothing/Uniform Kink, Crime Fighting, Hijinks & Shenanigans, In Space, Monsters, Porn With Plot, Sex Pollen, Soulmates

    I love how crazy this show is, and I love everybody on it, but especially Mari. I love how she's an idol who just woke up one day and decided to be a superhero, I love that she's a natural at it, I love that she screws up and makes mistakes and gets through it. I particularly love her friendship with Goto (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!), but also with the MMM/Flamenco Girls, and I'd love anything that has even some of the crazy adventures and fun of the series.

    Pairing(s): Goto/Mari


    The Dark Knight Legacy (Stephanie Brown)

    Action/Adventure, Apocalypse, Case Fic, Crime Fighting, Dystopia, Identity Porn, Monsters, Power Outage, Secret Organisation

    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!)

    Pairing(s): Blake/Steph


    Tiny Titans (Any)

    Accidental Baby Animal Acquisition, Action/Adventure, Alien Invasion, Alternate Universe - Magical Girls, Comedy of Errors, Crack Fic, Crime Fighting, Groundhog Day, Hijinks & Shenanigans, In Space, Magical Artifacts, Magical Buildings, Magical Pants, Monsters, Power Swap, Quests, Realm Hopping, Snowed In, Team Dynamics, Treasure Hunting

    Seriously anything!!!! Tiny Titans is one of my very favourite comics, and I would happily read about anything or anyone in this universe. The nominated characters are some of my favourites (Kory and her adorable space pet! Rose and her super embarrassing dad! Robin! ALL THE ROBINS! ALL THE BATGIRLS! DONNA!!!), but if there's somebody else you'd love to write about, please do! As long as it captures some of the fun and playfulness and ridiculousness and sheer adorability of the series, I'd be super thrilled to read absolutely anything. (Including, but not limited to: More Robins! Batgirl parties! Space adventures! Treehouse adventures! Pet club adventures! Batcave adventures! Literally any kind of adventure ever!)

    Pairing(s): Gen


    Victorious (Beck Oliver/Jade West)

    Alien Invasion, Alternate Universe - Vampire Slayer, Comedy of Errors, Handcuffed Together, Hijinks & Shenanigans, Porn With Plot, Public Sex, Road Trip, Trapped, Vacations Gone Awry, Woke Up Married

    Jade and Beck's relationship is, hands down, my favourite thing about the show. I love the way he keeps her in line, and the way he actually makes her happy, and I really love the way he looks at her - like he's not sure why because she's mostly super crazy, but he absolutely adores her. I'm really not looking for angst here - something fun and slightly ridiculous in the style of the show would be amazing, ensemble welcome - and please, please don't break them up (again - though totally-not-over-you ex sex while they were broken up would work for me). Mostly, I feel like their relationship is super adorable and actually workable despite the surface dysfunction, and I'd love something in that vein. (More things I really love about Jade and Beck: Youtube videos! There are a bunch of them, and they're all super amazing, like their video profiles, and drive-by acting exercises, and Beck and Jade's relationship advice. Also, nothing can convince me they aren't kinky in private. Like, sometimes when Jade's being especially caustic, Beck will just give her this ~look that pretty much screams 'you are so going to be punished later.' Which is maybe half the reason she does it. YMMV, and I'm not explicitly asking for smut - though I'm fine with it - it's just kind of how I see their relationship.)


    Wizards of Waverly Place (Justin Russo/Alex Russo, Justin Russo & Alex Russo)

    Accidental Soulbonding, Action/Adventure, Alien Invasion, Causal Time Loop, Fake/Pretend Relationship, Hijinks & Shenanigans, Magic Made Them Do It, Magic School, Magical Artifacts, Monsters, Quests

    I love the show a lot, so something in that vein, with humour and implausible situations and wacky magical hijinks, would be fantastic, but I'd also love any kind of fic, from action/adventure quests to cracky AU to angsty apocafic. I love the extended cast, so fic featuring as many of them as you like would be all kinds of awesome (and I particularly love Max, who I find ridiculously endearing at all times), but more than anything, I love the relationship between Justin and Alex (whether in a regular sibling-y way or not), and I love them being at the centre of each other's worlds, even if they'd never admit it. Some (but by no means all) of my favourite things: Justin and Alex at WizTech, Justin and Alex on epic adventures together, Justin and Alex saving (or maybe accidentally destroying) the world, Justin and/or Alex screwing something up and having to fix it together, Justin and Alex being thrown together for any reason at all.
