Dear Femslash Exchange Author/Artist

Hello there!

First off, thank you so much for writing this fic/drawing art for me. I really appreciate it, and I hope you have a great time making it. Other than my deal-breakers, you don't need to feel constricted by anything that I've noted down here. I've requested these fandoms and ships 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!

All right, let's get down to business, defeat some Huns.

General likes: (please feel free to include) friendships, friendships that develop into romance, introspection, character studies, domestic fluff, mystery, family relationships. I like future fic and modern AUs and canon divergent AUs, in the vein of 'what if she 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 quite fond of fusion AUs as well, so if an idea strikes you that you can combine with Harry Potter, His Dark Materials or Pacific Rim, go for it!

General dislikes: (please try to avoid) rape/dubcon (discussing or mentioning them is fine), character bashing, first person pov, super depressing/sad endings. I don't need out and out fluff, but I'd definitely prefer something that ends happily. If infidelity is a part of the story, I'd prefer that you didn't concentrate on it too much. In art, nothing with a lot of gore, please.

I'm fine with any rating. You certainly don't need to feel obligated to write porn, but if you'd like to, the closest thing I have to a bulletproof kink is light, consensual D/s. But again, don't feel obliged to include it. I'm squicked by scat/watersports, emphasis on any kind of bodily fluid, especially spit.

All right, let's get into fandom/ship specifics. Once again, these are more like guidelines. I've included some totally optional poetry quotes with each fandom, just in case you need/want the extra inspiration.

Orange is the New Black

I walk slowly in the wind.
I walk because I cannot crawl or fly.

Janae is my girl, my absolute favourite in this show. I just want good things to happen to her! I'd be great if she could find happiness in the form of a cute girlfriend. That said, Janae/Yoga Jones is my total guilty pleasure. I loved their developing friendship in season one. They're obviously very different people, but they bonded for a while there; perhaps you could explore an incident that makes them even closer? Janae/Brook is kind of random, but I loooooved Brook, I just think it'd be cute to see how she and Janae do or don't get along! Take things outside of the prison, if you'd like!

Steven Universe

Peace be with them.
They were heavy.

I've only requested Garnet ships, because she's my favourite by a tiny margin, but I need to say: please please please feel free to take things into an ot3 or ot4 direction if you're so inclined. I honestly love all the gems no matter which way you ship them. The gems have been saving the world and co-momming together for years and years, and despite their differences and squabbles, they're all obviously very close! And I would just adore something that explores their polyamorous relationship, and how they manage that while still being powerful otherworldly superladies.

If you do go with any of the two person ships (and make no mistake, I love them all) here are some things that I'd be into: Garnet/Pearl on a date (flustered Pearl is an international treasure), Garnet/Amethyst beating up stuff, maybe discussing the Sugilite incident, Garnet/Rose being moms. I love how weird and disturbing-yet-cute that Steven Universe can get, so feel free to include some of those elements!

Percy Jackson Universe

The waters will be rising soon.
Find someone or something to cling to.

For this canon especially, I'd like something hopeful/happy/romantically fluffy. Give these poor demigod babies a break! ;; For Hazel/Piper, maybe something where they spar and get closer and girltalk? Post series shenanigans? The forced rivalry between Reyna/Piper bored me to tears, so give me the opposite of that; they realise how much they have in common while they're separated from the group on a mission. Or maybe they get lost, and have to find their way back home together? For Reyna/Thalia, I'd love something with the 'we must pretend to be a couple; we must be girlfriends or else!!' trope. I like the idea of capable, aloof Reyna being flustered by Thalia, like this, perhaps.

(For Piper ships, if you need to get rid of Jason, might I suggest: Nico. :)?)

Also, this wasn't nominated, but if you'd like to do a Clarisse/Silena fic, one that highlights the Achilles/Patroclus parallels in their relationship, or an AU where Silena doesn't die, and has to deal with the ramifications of her actions... I'd adore that.

A Song of Ice and Fire

he is not midas
you have always been golden

Man, I ship a lot of things here, don't I? Feel free to throw in as much angst and politics as you think is appropriate, but again, let our heroines have a happy ending, please ;;

For Asha/Alysane I think something canon divergent would be fun; an AU where Asha grew up on Bear Island or where Alysane was fostered on Pyke, and they fall for each other. For Brienne/Margaery, I'm really in love with the idea of Marg being smitten by big strong brave Brienne, to the point where it kind of distracts her from her political goals. For Brienne/Sansa, gimme all the courtly love tropes you got, and make these babies happy. For Melisandre/Selyse, anything where they fall in love in a modern setting. For Nymeria/Margaery... haha ngl, I definitely have a thing for Various Girls Domming Marg, and Nymeria is one of my favourite candidates for that. Or perhaps you can do something mysterious and politically charged, when they're both in King's Landing. As for Margaery/Sansa... man, I'd be happy with pretty much anything for this ship. But I would like to see them on an adventure of some sort, maybe in the Free Cities, after the war.


Whew, this got kind of long. I know a lot of that was oriented towards fic, but for artists, trust me when I say that I'd be delighted with just about anything. Once again, please don't stress yourself out. ♥ If one of the ideas I have here is something that you'd like to write/draw, then great! Just be sure to have fun. Thanks again, and good luck darling!
