Dear Femslash Exchange Creator

Hi there!

I'm [ profile] mautadite. Firstly, thank you so much for writing this fic/drawing art for me. I hope you have a great time making it. This letter is just a series of guidelines; just try to avoid my do-not-wants and I'm sure I'll love what you write. If my prompts don't get you going, and you want to take the fic/art in another direction, or mix and match prompts, feel free! I've requested these fandoms and characters because I'm really invested in them all, in one way or another, and I'd be happy to receive fanworks for any of them. Make something that you'd enjoy yourself!

Okay, so here are some details for you!

General likes: (please feel free to include) friendships, friendships that develop into romance, introspection, character studies, domestic fluff, mystery, family relationships, exploration of intense loyalty. I like future fic and modern AUs and canon divergent AUs, in the vein of 'what if so-and-so didn't die, what if this happened instead of that'. Feel free to explore any and all of your trans and/or nonbinary headcanons. I'm really into character interaction, it's often my favourite part of a story, but a good plot can really get me going too! There are a bunch of tropes that I'm quite fond of, like 'separated from the group and surviving on their own', 'undercover as a couple', 'sharing a bed', 'friends to lovers'. I quite like fusion AUs, so if an idea strikes you that you can meld/combine with Pacific Rim or His Dark Materials, go for it, if that's your thing! :)

General dislikes: (please try to avoid) rape/dubcon (discussing or mentioning them is fine, especially in survival/recovery scenarios), character bashing, character death, first person pov, a/b/o, super depressing/sad endings. I don't need out and out fluff, and I do enjoy angst, but I'd definitely prefer something that ends happily or hopefully. If infidelity is a part of the story, I'd prefer that you didn't concentrate on it too much.

Other notes:

» I'm fine with any rating. You certainly don't need to feel obligated to write porn, but if you'd like to, click here!

» I tried to hit a nice balance between just enough prompts to get you going, and not so much info that it constricts you. But if you'd like me to expand upon what I have below, feel free to leave me an anon comment/send me questions through the mods.

» Scrolling through my tumblr and checking the tags for the different fandoms (1, 2, 3, 4) might give you a few more ideas about what I like. But only if you want to/think it would help!

Okay, here are my fandoms! I've included some optional poetry quotes with each of them, just in case you need/want that dash of extra inspiration.


A Song of Ice and Fire
- Sansa Stark/Brienne of Tarth, Asha Greyjoy/Alysane Mormont, Asha Greyjoy/Arianne Martell

rain was the cause of roofs / birth was the cause of beds [x]

After all these years I still harbour a deep begrudging love for this series and all its women. There are a few of my very many ships, and I'd love your take on them! Please keep in mind that I don't watch the show at all, and would prefer not to have any details/spoilers from it. <3

» Sana/Brienne - Courtly love between women is one of my very favourite things, and these two are perfect for it! I'm mostly looking for future fic, what things might be like if Sansa is one of the people helping rebuild King's Landing/Westeros (whoever sits on the Iron Throne is up to you) and Brienne is a knight at court. Or perhaps a scenario where Sansa is Queen in the North and Brienne serves her loyally. How would a romance develop between them in that situation. I'm also a fan of a theory that Brienne will somehow make her way to the Eyrie. Tell me about how she and Sansa deal with Littlefinger and his plans (perhaps even an AU where Brienne somehow makes it into the Vale before Lysa dies?), or what they do after they escape.

» Asha/Alysane - Gimme those canon divergent fostering scenarios. So much potential for changing relationships and personalities. It'd be cool to see something where Asha is fostered to the Mormonts when Theon is shipped off to the Starks after the Greyjoy Rebellion. We've also only ever seen Alysane in the North, in her own element. A fic that puts her on Asha's boat somehow, sailing up and down Westeros, going on adventures... that would be amazing! What kind of pirate would Aly be, and what circumstances would lead her to join up with Asha? I'd just really like to see what these two strong, warrior like women would get up to when left to their own devices.

» Asha/Arianne - Two of my very favourite characters; both leaders, both strong in different ways. I'd love to see them both in Essos; maybe Arianne is the one chosen to go negotiate with Daenerys instead of Quenten, and perhaps Asha finds herself there after the Kingsmoot. How do negotiations go, how to they influence events in Mereen, and how do they navigate each other? This would definitely be hard to wrangle canonically, but I love fostering stories so... maybe an AU where Asha grows up in Dorne (maybe she's sent there as a hostage after Balon's Rebellion? idk). What is it like being hostage, but yet growing up in an environment where women are comparatively so much freer? Is it puppy love at first sight for she and Arianne, or are they rivals at first? I love post war stories as well; give me negotiations, planning for the future, respect in the council chambers and in the bedroom. Maybe Arianne visits the Iron Islands that Asha now rules over? Anything!


- Delilah Copperspoon/Billie Lurk, Delilah Copperspoon/Breanna Ashworth

that night when i left you on the bridge / i bent down / kneeling on my knee / and pressed my ear to listen to the land [x]

Anything set in this amazing world with these amazing women would be great! I don't think I will be played Death of the Outsider by the time reveals roll around, so just in case, no spoilers please! <3

» Delilah/Billie - I've loved these two and the messy, fucked up relationship they must have had ever since The Knife of Dunwall. I'm not really a fan of 'darkfic', but for this ship, feel free to get a little, angsty/creepy/dark, as much as it suits the characters and the stories you want to tell. Tell me about them first getting together; how Delilah seduced Billie into betraying Daud. I'd love something bittersweet; maybe there's some small part of Delilah that reminds her of Deidre, and that's why she's powerless against her. Show me Billie posing for one of Delilah's paintings. A conversation about the void. It would also be interesting to see an AU where Corvo/Emily fails at some point in their journey, and dies. Billie then takes it upon herself to defeat Delilah, but how far does she/can she get against her old lover? Another AU idea: what if Delilah succeeded in converting her,and Billie became one of the witches? Lots of interesting places to take this ship!

» Delilah/Breanna - These two make me kind of sad; I love how much Breanna loves Delilah, venerates her for saving her from what would have been a weary life. First off, I wouldn't be me if I didn't ask for weird witchy sex; messing around in the void, experimenting with spells and each other. Show me vignettes in their relationship, from Breanna's time as an unhappy member of the nobility to becoming Delilah's right hand woman. What was it like, in the days after Delilah came back? I got the feeling that there were a lot of things that Delilah would have shared with Breanna while she kept it from Luca, and her time in the Void would definitely be one of those things.


- Chloe Frazer/Nadine Ross

no matter where i turn / like fierce revolt goes with me / like a kiss [x]

After watching a playthrough of The Lost Legacy I am ALL AFIRE for this ship. My requests will have allusions to the DLC, but no outright spoilers. Still, if you haven't played/watched and want to do so completely blind, it may be best for casual readers to skip over this. And if this is the only thing we matched on, no worries! I'd still love to read fic/see art that's solely based on previous games. :)

» Chloe/Nadine (fic) - Gosh, where do I begin... I'd love to see a heist fic. If set before TLL, maybe Nadine has been hired to protect an artefact that Chloe has been hired to steal. They meet in the line of duty and sparks fly. You could also do something where Chloe is somehow a part of U4; fit her into the storyline and have her interact with Nadine and the gang however you see best! (Maybe she shows up with Elena and Sully as part of the cavalry on the island?) Also, these two are a couple I'd love to see in a 'trapped!' sort of situation. Stick 'em somewhere and have them figure out how they're going to escape. If it's after TLL, what are they like in this newly cemented partnership? Does Nadine takes well to subterfuge and Robin Hood-esque thievery? Does Chloe pick up any of Nadine's more direct approaches? Again, exploring that in a heist setting would be super fun. Or maybe at a party, while they're trying to scam scummy rich people. For other ideas... what do people in their respective circles make of their new arrangement? Would love to see them meeting up with Nate, Elena or Sully, maybe even Charlie. I'd be totally up for fluffy stuff, cute moments while riding to a mission, rescue fic, tropey goodness. And finally, if you're a PWP kinda person I wouldn't complain either. I'm especially gay for: Nadine pinning Chloe to a wall, Chloe being kinda dom-y ("It's a control thing."), lots of making out.

» Chloe/Nadine (art) - This is one of those times where I can very truly honestly say: ANYTHING WOULD MAKE ME HAPPY. Show me them undercover at a fancy party, Nadine with her hair down, sleek pants suit on (or maybe a dress with long slits/a short dress 👀 I imagine she'd be amenable to anything she could fight well in), Chloe in an elegant dress, draped on her arm. Arms wrestling (I imagine Chloe would be losing but putting up a damn good fight... or maybe she cheats by stealing a kiss at a crucial moment :3). Kissing up against a wall. Standing arm in arm. Sitting close, shoulders rubbing. Hugging. Chloe laughing at something, Nadine with a rare smile. Aaaaaanything. <3


Dragon Age: Inquisition
- Cassanra Pentaghast/Vivienne de Fer, Vivienne de Fer/Sera

shines the beauty of my darling in her laughing eyes [x]

Vivienne is one of my faaaaavourite characters ever, and I don't see her in art as much as I'd like to. Hence, these requests: two rare but really really cute ships that I'd ADORE seeing art for. One tiny request that you don't need to feel obligated to follow: I'd love to see Vivienne without her headdress and with hair. Screw canon, I thought it was lazy lol. Maybe a twist out, or twists, or dreads, or a puff! But again, no obligations! <3 I know that art is tricky to give/get prompts for, so definitely feel free to edit my prompts, twist it to your liking, go where your muse takes you. :)

» Cassandra/Vivienne - Dancing! Please! Wherever, whenever! (...they're meant to be together.) The Winter Palace is a good enough setting if you feel like it. Cass can be in her Inquisition uniform but it would be really nice to see Viv in a fancy dress or stately robes. Other things that I'd love: battle poses, standing back to back with their weapons drawn. Holding hands. Hand kissing. Vivienne reading from one of Cassandra's dorky romo novels, looking amused; Cassandra sitting nearby looking embarrassed. SMOOCHING! With Vivienne out of her headdress they're probably the same-ish height but I like to imagine Cass as a teeeeeeensy bit taller. The better for cute tropes like tiptoeing to give kisses. :3

» Vivienne/Sera - I know they hate each other, but I love them both, and that's enough for me to want cute rivalmancy art. Again, battle ready poses would be cool (maybe they're holding each other's weapons?) but feel free to get hijinks-y as well. Making faces at each other (Sera gleefully and blatantly, making the ugliest face she can manage, Vivienne discreetly and demurely in an "I can't believe I'm stooping to this but I'll give as good as I get" way). Vivienne fixing Sera's hair, Sera begrudgingly staying still and pouting. Sleeping together, Sera sprawled all over Viv. If you want to go super silly, which I def. don't mind, stuffed into a shared "GET ALONG" shirt. And again, SMOOCHING. Maybe Sera jumped up, arms around Viv's neck.


Thanks again, and have fun writing! ♥
