Over the last couple of weeks, I got quite a good dose of Sci Fi. New Star Trek, new Blade Runner, plus the first one and a half seasons of The Expanse, a show that I had never heard of until Netflix rather successfully marketed it to Cavendish, who decided to give it a try, watched the pilot, and then, on the very next day, decided to watch said pilot again, this time together with me.

And wow, am I glad that he asked me to join him, because already said pilot left me speechless due to spoilery plot stuff that best remains untold so you can view for yourselves .Not only does the show offer a complex, well-developed and richly detailed universe (you can tell The Expanse is based on a series of novels), it also features nuanced characters and probably the most diverse cast I’ve seen in ages, characters and actors of various ethnic backgrounds and various age groups.

Oh, and on top of that absolutely stunning visuals. Seeing what The Expanse does with its space stations and ships, the newer ones as well as those rundown and falling apart, I immediately thought of Babylon 5, and that B5, a true pioneer back in the 1990s, would look just like this if it had been filmed today and not some twenty years ago. Shiny and gritty and lived in and quite amazing.

Hi there! I'm not usually a letter writer but given the bumpy start I had with my fandoms being smooshed, I thought I'd better write one for this to clarify things more than just "any relationship" and it's probably going to get long so if you're not into letters, that's cool, I'll sum it up here. We already have something in common, the love of threesomes/moresomes/polyships and at least one polyship in particular. I tend to lean more towards shippy-fics and especially smut, I'm quite unshockable and there is very little pornwise that I won't read. If you aren't into porn then there's a few other things I love, I'm a fan of certain tropes that I'll list below, most of which follow the "woke up ____" idea. I'm also a fan of darkfic so if you want to take it down that road, bring on the mindfucks, the torture, the noncon.

So sort of as a table of contents, though I'm not rich text editor savvi enough to actually do cuts or anything (I normally write in html but I'm a sucker for pretty bullet points), the order of this letter should end up something like:
-Quick list of DNWs
-General likes, light and dark.
-Smutty likes
-A little bit specific to each ship.

Please note the general likes and smutty likes are mostly lifted from my trick or treat letter, hence the subcategories.

Requested Fandoms and Characters

The Originals and The Vampire Dairies (Ships are taken from both categories and alphabetised because... well, I was up at 5am this morning doing that anyway trying to sort them out so why not put that to use.)

Abigail/Davina Claire/Monique Deveraux
  • I'd love to see something relating to magic here, obviously. Can either be the bond they feel as Harvest Girls, the friendship and relationship before, during and after being chosen as harvest girls. Any form of sex magic or ritual. If you want to do dark, Monique after she's resurrected and went darkside, maybe her using the other girls for their power or coercing them into dark magic.

Aurora de Martel/Tristan de Martel/Lucien Castle
  • Can be pre-meeting The Originals, during their stay, during their early days as vampires when they were compelled to think they were Elijah/Klaus/Rebekah or when the compulsion wears off, right up to the modern setting when they come to New Orleans. Or anything in between. I'm a big fan of Aurora's antics and would love to see her have both boys wrapped around her little finger.

Bonnie Bennett/Caroline Forbes/Rebekah Mikaelson && Bonnie Bennett/Caroline Forbes/Elena Gilbert/Rebekah Mikaelson
  • I like the idea of Bonnie/Caroline(/Elena) being an established ship (or poly or open) and them deciding to bring Rebekah into the mix. Maybe because she's new. Maybe because she's lonely. Maybe to get her on "their side". Maybe just because she's hot and one or more of the girls fancy her. Anything involving the fact they are all on the cheerleading squad at some point. Anything set at school. If you want to go dark, Rebekah kidnapping and playing with the other girls or Rebekah compelling Caroline (and Elena) to do things while Bonnie, whom she can't compel, watches. Or Bonnie gets into some dark magic and needs to use the vampires in some way.

Bonnie McCullough/Damon Salvatore/Elena Gilbert && Bonnie McCullough/Elena Gilbert/Meredith Sulez
  • This is the bit where I tell the truth and say, I wasn't a huge fan of the books. But we'll put that aside for now because I've requested them and that's the deal I've made. From what I remember, I liked Damon's relationship with Bonnie in the books, especially that it brought out his humanity and his good side more than anyone else (the bathtub scene is what really stuck with me), so something with that kind of feel, bringing Elena into the mix, learning to function as a threeway ship, negotiating how that works -- are they a V or fully poly, do they go from being one to the other. With the Bonnie/Elena/Meredith one, anything with them being ~normal girls~ would work, sleepover themes, experimenting, dealing with hormones and crushes and each other's personality. Ideally I'd prefer it if it wasn't focused on the plot of the books but if you want to tie it to a plot point, maybe something about their time in "hell" or go dark with that time in "hell".

Caroline Forbes/Hayley Marshall/Klaus Mikaelson
  • This could be set in either canon, to be honest. I like the idea of Caroline and Hayley being both polar opposites in looks and strikingly similar in attitude sometimes. Do they team up to teach Klaus a lesson? Do they decide they both want him and that they can learn to share? Does one have sexual dreams about being involved with the other two? I'd love them to keep Nik on his toes. This would be a fitting ship for the two girls teasing him and/or punishing him by letting him watch but not touch.

Caroline Forbes/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson
  • It would be silly not to open with that bar scene. "She sure does look good walking away from you". I'd love some brotherly competition, both trying to charm her, both succeeding and failing in different areas. Maybe Caroline decides she's willing to give in but the catch is, she wants both brothers... are they willing to share? Or go really really dark here. Maybe they compel her and have their wicked way with her. Incest between the brothers welcome but not required.

Davina Claire/Hayley Marshall/Elijah Mikaelson/Freya Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson &&
Hayley Marshall/Elijah Mikaelson/Freya Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson && Hayley Marshall/Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson Klaus Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Stefan Salvatore
  • Random Orgy! There is no other way to put that, is there? Maybe swinging, maybe partner swapping, maybe sex pollen/spell gone wrong, maybe it's one character's birthday and they get all the sex they want. If you're less into group sex then... maybe couple A and/or couple B are having really loud sex and the remaining characters are having to listen/make small talk/try to go about their day. I don't mind which couples you want to make out of the group, if you go that route but I'd love some that weren't canon. Incest totally welcome here in any shape or form.

Elena Gilbert/Damon Salvatore/Rose
  • This is sort of reminiscent of the book prompt above but the thing I love about Rose is that she brings out Damon's humanity. Anything playing on that, maybe with Elena seeing how they are together or learning about the past and deciding that's a version of Damon she could be with. I also like the idea of established (or even past love rekindled) Damon/Rose bringing Elena into the relationship. Feel free to write over Rose's death like it never happened.

Elena Gilbert/Damon Salvatore/Stefan Salvatore
  • The classic TVD threesome. You can go any way you like with this. Elena deciding she wants both. Damon being possessive of either one and demanding in on the relationship. Any 2 of the 3 being established and letting the third in. And for those into the more forbidden incest angle, maybe Elena catches the brothers fucking and is shockingly turned on by it. Or maybe she has dreams about it. Or maybe one brother dreamwalks into her head and makes her dream it. Or dark fiic always welcome.

Elena Gilbert/Elijah Mikaelson/Katherine Pierce && Elena Gilbert/Rebekah Mikaelson/Katherine Pierce
  • I love doppelcest. Could be Elena and Katherine using their likeness to mess with the other person. Could be Katherine pretending to be Elena (or Elena pretending to be Katherine) and getting caught by the real one. Could be darkfic where they make one of the doppelgangers watch while they fuck the other. Could be some throwback to Tatia in some way. Or maybe they just want to see double when it comes to Elena and Katherine.

Elena Gilbert/Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson && Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Katherine Pierce && Hayley Marshall/Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson
  • So, for each of these, the first thing that always springs to mind is that I love it when Elijah and Klaus share a commonality. They balance each other out. If that can be applied to a polyship in anyway then I'm happy. Other options can include brotherly competition over the affections of whichever girl. The girl playing them off against each other. Established incest where the girl sees something or works out what's going on. Or dark fic, as dark as you like.

Elena Gilbert/Hayley Marshall/Elijah Mikaelson
  • I would love to see noble Elijah torn down the middle because he wants both women. Or both women want him. And I would love them sorting it out for him, seducing his ~honourable intentions~ into a threesome or a poly relationship.This could also work as a F/F, male can look but can't touch type.

Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson &&
Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson && Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson && Elijah Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson && Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson
  • ALL THE MIKAELCEST. I tried to come up with every way I could bend it between these four. I love them. I love how fucked up they are. The more fucked up you can make it, the better. Fics set back before they were turned are very welcome as is any point i their history, you can't really go wrong. I'd love to see the Always and Forever thing include Kol or have something that works on them including him. Anything that plays up to the dirtybadwrong. Or go light with it, maybe when one sibling has achieved something or deserves a present, they get sex from the other siblings. Or maybe one sibling is ill or injured or is feeling betrayed (after being daggered, for example) and needs to be looked after by their siblings. An established pair being found out by the third is always welcome, with an added bonus of "I won't tell... if you let me join in" because you know certain siblings would use that as faux blackmail. Or go dark with real blackmail. Or just go dark, dark as you like. Nothing really is too dark for this family.

Eve Labonair/Hayley Marshall/Rebekah Mikaelson
  • Honestly when I nominated this one, I saw it in as a canonical tag and thought "Well, damn, that's interesting." I like rare pairs, you've probably gathered that from the fact I'm doing a poly exchange and most of my requests are rare pairs. But this is RARE! I would love to see some of the different dynamics shown, werewolf politics perhaps or power differences (untriggered werewolf vs werewolf vs vampire). If you want to go dark or even hurt/comfort, maybe the pack kidnapped and is holding Rebekah hostage, keeping her weak with werewolf bites and the women have to decide if they're a part of that or not, if they align with the pack or go against it because It's The Right Thing and end up caring for or rescuing Rebekah.

Freya Mikaelson/Keelin/Hayley Marshall && Hayley Marshall/Freya Mikaelson/Keelin
  • Same ship, different tags. I liked the struggle between Hayley and Freya at the start over what to do with Keelin. Anything set in that part of the story would be lovely, with maybe Hayley winning Freya over to trusting the wolf because of Pack Loyalty. Alternatively, Freya and Keelin later in canon, where they are established, and Hayley starts to bond with Keelin over being a wolf or being drawn into Mikaelson drama. Perhaps Keelin learns that Freya and Hayley had a thing in the past (even just a one night stand) and Keelin wants to see that in action. Perhaps Hayely and Keelin had a thing at the start of the season and Freya finds out and decides all three can make it work. Maybe Keelin notices Hayley has a crush on Freya and they bring her in for some fun. Any way you can get these three girls together.

Genevieve/Hayley Marshall/Klaus Mikaelson
  • I loved Genevieve and Klaus's enemies with benefits relationship. That's something that needs to happen more often. This ship can go either way, light and fun where they invite Hayley to join the fun or dark where Genevieve uses Hayley as Klaus's weak spot. I like the fact she can make him hallucinate things so if you want to go down that route, it's very welcome. Or maybe Klaus isn't the only person fraternising with Genevieve and it becomes a frenemy threesome with Genevieve in the middle. Maybe Genevieve needs the two werewolf hybrids for some sexy dark magic or she spells them to do things. Or as always, I do love that two girls making the man watch, unable to touch unless they say.

Genevieve/Rebekah Mikaelson/Marcel Gerard
  • Imagine the drama! It's WW1 era, Genevieve clearly has a thing for Rebekah but Rebekah is having a secret affair with Marcel. Obviously in canon, her finding out leads to her meeting a sticky end but let's pretend for a moment that she didn't. Would the two seduce her to keep her quiet? Would Rebekah play up to that crush? Would Genevieve blackmail her way into their relationship to buy her silence? Or for something lighter, maybe they decide to invite Genevieve in because they like her. Maybe Rebekah is fucking them both and decides it would be better all round if they were open about it. ANYTHING INVOLVING REBEKAH AND GEN IN 
  • THEIR NURSES UNIFORMS! Maybe it's Marcel's birthday and he's always wanted to watch Rebekah with another woman. Maybe it's Rebekah's birthday and she's always wanted Genevieve and she gets her with a bow on. Or hell, maybe it's Genevieve's birthday and she gets to have them both! Or if you want to set it in the modern era that's fine. Revenge is best served cold. Feelings reawaken. Genevieve spells them into doing exactly what she's always wanted.

Elijah Mikaelson/Klaus Mikaelson/Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Tatia
  • I didn't put this one in the incest ship tags because I would love to see something where Tatia is the focus here. Does she seduce them all? Is she the centerpiece in a Mikaelson gangbang? Is she the one thing the siblings can share? Anything you want here, light or dark.

Katherine Pierce/Damon Salvatore/Stefan Salvatore
  • The other classic TVD threesome. Cliche as it is, I'd love something set around Katherine playing the two human brothers off against each other for her affections. Maybe pushing them to see how far they will go or compelling them to go even further. This can get as dark as you like and incest is absolutely welcome.

Klaus Mikaelson/Aurora de Martel/Lucien Castle
  • So as far as I'm concerned, this is like the best messy ship in the world. Klaus loved Aurora. Lucien loved Aurora. Aurora loved Klaus. Lucien, in my humble opinion, loved Klaus, or was at least obsessed with him in an unhealthy way. I swear I knew a trio like this in my teenage years. Show me just how messy it can get. Lucien using his knowledge of their lie to coerce Klaus. Aurora deciding she isn't ready to give up Lucien's devotion even though she wants to be with Nik. Creepy voyeurism. Nik experimenting with their newfound abilities, such as compulsion. Aurora thinking they can live happily ever after. Lucien and Aurora dealing with turning. Thank god you're not really dead sex. Or modern era, revenge sex. Aurora torturing her boys and having her fun.Or Lucien torturing and playing with them both. Or maybe they can resolve everything by just sitting down and talking about it.

Klaus Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Stefan Salvatore
  • Ok so what I love about these three and that flashback is how it was supposed to be Stefan and Rebekah and fandom went "excuse you, it's obviously Stefan and Klaus" and me being me goes "Please, they're all at it." Give me anything about that flashback. Klaus's jealousy. Stefan caught between the two. Rebekah purposefully flirting and pushing Nik's buttons. Sibling rivalry over Stefan's affections. Male rivalry over Rebekah's affections. Stefan finding out that they siblings are a lot closer than they should be. Established Nik/Bex bringing Stefan in. Or compelling Stefan in. One sibling "gifting" Stefan to the other as a white flag. Or modern day era. I love the idea of Stefan not knowing about the 20s. Maybe he's already with Klaus when Rebekah is undaggered and she comes to claim what's hers. Or how does Stefan deal with getting back the memories that were taken. Can he reconcile the past with the present. Does Klaus share his Ripper toy with Rebekah? Does Ripper Stefan try to fuck shit up by shagging Rebekah not knowing that Nik is more than willing play? Does Rebekah give herself over to the boys to keep them distracted from death and carnage or does she want in on the bloodbath? Go as dark as you like with these three.

Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Aurora de Martel && Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Damon Salvatore &&
Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Davina Claire && Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Hayley Marshall && Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Lucien Castle && Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Sage && Kol Mikalson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Katherine Pierce
  • Ok so my two person OTP is Kol/Rebekah. How did you guess lol. But damn, the idea of them threesoming with just about anyone is right up my street. I picked some of my favourite characters because like I said, I could have picked any character. What I love about Kol and Rebekah, in any era, is that they're a double act. They're partners in crime. And I think they set that up wonderfully in canon but never quite let it get as far into it's potential as it could have gotten. So my number one request here is Kol/Bex TEAMWORK! I don't mind if they're established or not but I'm way way ok with incest and them being a thing already. I don't mind if it comes from a place of seduction and just being all "I want that person, let's have that person" or if it's dark and they want a new plaything or to get revenge on someone that hurt them. I just love them plotting together and would like to see that take on a threesome level. Extra extra bonus points for going dark with Kol/Rebekah/Davina because yes, that is something that specifically plays to my interests but fandom and canon tbh is all about the fluffy Kol/Davina while ignoring the fact that it was actually pretty fucked up, lets be real, between all the lies, manipulation and abusive behaviour, this has all the hallmarks for a hell of a dark ship, even if under the veil of the curse Kol was under. I'd love to see some of those darker elements in fic.The darker the better.

Kol Mikaelson/Rebekah Mikaelson/Freya Mikaelson
  • Right, all of the above but with the extra bonus of... surprise incest! I love that flashback Christmas scene. I love that the writers had Kol and Freya on a DATE because please. Come on. How can that not be some glorious set up for some fucked up incest? I love how they realised that's what they'd inadvertently implied to the point they had to actually revisit it a hundred plus years later with Kol going "Didn't we date? Oh yeah that's right, I thought you were a lesbian because you didn't put out", paraphrased. That was the most hilarious ass-covering I've ever seen. And all the awkward giggling from Freya only served to make me believe that was also them doing some ass-covering bullshit in case anyone else awkwardly remembered the fact he dated his sister and that she knew. Anyway, I could bang on about my accidental incest headcanon for years. Let's bring Rebekah into the mix. Why was she warning Freya off? Well, probably because she thought Kol would eat her but let's get shippy with it. Did she fancy Freya herself? Was she jealous of her? Did she want Kol all to herself or did she want in on their fun? How far is Freya willing to go to ~get to know~ her family? In for a penny, in for a threesome? Do Kol and Rebekah have a set up where they share their conquests? Maybe Freya was more into women and there's truth in what Kol says later on, maybe he got to be privvy to a tryst between Freya and Rebekah. Kol as a rule doesn't <i>date</i>, so Rebekah wants to know what's so special about this witch? Modern era could work too... either plain old Mikaelcest strikes again or maybe Freya needs them for a spell (that goes wrong?). While Nik and Elijah are away, Kol, Rebekah and Freya play? There's a scene where Kol absolutely tears Freya apart about her postion in the family, about how he never really cared about her/wanted her. Cue some epic hate sex about those (sexually) tense feelings, Rebekah trying to mend the fences, some hurt/comfort, Rebekah coaching Freya through Kol's temper tantrums because she's used to them and knows how to handle him.

Marcel Gerard/Klaus Mikaelson/Elijah Mikaelson
  • So this is equal parts Nik/Elijah sharing things and also Marcel feeling like he's not part of the family. Any era. Anything. Maybe Marcel is feeling guilty over choosing vampirism over Rebekah so they comfort him. Maybe lessons in how to be a vampire, continuing his ~education~. Nik finally having something good and wanting to share that with Elijah. Or later in canon when everything has gone to hell in a hand basket and things are very tense. The Mikaelsons reclaiming NOLA by reclaiming Marcel (perhaps publically even?). Marcel screwing with Klaus's mind while he's being tortured in the basement. Politics taking on a very different arrangement. Two of the three established and being caught by the third or inviting the third in. Incest welcome for this one but not required.

Marcel Gerard/Rebekah Mikaelson/Camille O'Connell
  • Because every time someone obsessed with Rebekah has a fling with someone blonde, it couldn't be more transparent. I'd love for Rebekah to realise what's going on and work her way into the middle of it, play some games, fuck things up before making it work again. This is also another perfect chance for girls can play while he can only watch. Or the two girls gang up on Marcel over some indiscretion or another. Maybe he's been sleeping with them both?

Rebekah Mikaelson/Freya Mikaelson/Hayley Marshall
  • However you can make it happen, I love femslash. Spell gone wrong? Hurt/comfort after a battle? Boys are away so the girls can play? Big bad makes them do things? Hayley when going through her Ripper/no fucks given phase decides she's done being subtle? Matchmaking ends in a threesome? Super hearing leads to voyeurism? Hayley and Rebekah need to feed and Freya is the only human available and it's a lot more erotic than they thought it would be? Incest very welcome.

Rebekah Mikaelson/Lexi Branson/Rose
  • More femslash! I have a headcanon that Lexi was turned by Rebekah. I don't think canon says who she was turned by or which line she's from or anything about her life before Stefan. Obviously you don't have to roll with that headcanon, I'm just putting it out there. Three vampires having fun over the years. Perhaps Rebekah and Rose were a thing for a while, then Lexi and Rebekah took up together for a time and at some point, Rose and Lexi met and got along. And then much later, all three are in a room and they realise they've all hooked up at some point. Vampire girl's night? Any way you can make it work (or you know, PWP, who cares if it makes sense or not)

Sophie Deveraux/Marcel Gerard/Camille O'Connell
  • I like the idea of something pre-canon for this. NOLA politics. Camille trying to keep the peace in her bar. Unlikely romance between the three of them. Maybe they get drunk one night after hours? How much does Camille know about the vampires and the witches? Does she try to play matchmaker because Sophie will not stop talking about Marcel (the lady doth protest too much). Does an alliance between the witches and the vampires need to be sealed with some blood magic and a human? Does one of Sophie's spells go wrong? Does Sophie have Marcel's blood in her system when she dies? Is there more to Camille than meets the eye?

Vincent Griffith/Freya Mikaelson/Finn Mikaelson
  • Ok this one is out there. I ship Freya and Finn. I ship Freya and Vincent. I find it particularly kinky that Finn used to be inside Vincent. Roll with it any way you want to. Is Vincent privvy to what went on while Finn was possessing him? How does Freya feel about being attracted to her brother's new body? What happens when Finn gets his own body back and all three of them have to look each other in the eye?

H2O: Just Add Water

Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick && Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick/Bella Hartley && Cleo Sertori/Rikki Chadwick/Bella Hartley
  • So these are the core ships. Long and short is I happily ship any of the girls with any of the girls. Open to light and cute teenage drama of the week, sleepovers, experimentation, bonding over their powers/being mermaids. Smut totally welcome. Legal age of consent in their state is 16 if you were worried at all. PWP welcome. Darker fics welcome, such as the moon making them do things they wouldn't normally or magic in other ways making them do something they wouldn't otherwise do. Extra bonus points for Emma coming back from her trip and feeling replaced by Bella and the girls having to prove how much she's still very much a part of them.

Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick/Charlotte Watsford
  • Either light, where they do welcome Charlotte into the relationship at some point (before or after she's a mermaid) and she doesn't go all evil. Or go with the evil. Blackmail, coercion, kidnapping, torture, making the other girls do things. All good.

Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick/Miriam Kent
  • Again, you can go light and have the girls find something in common with Miriam, maybe she finds out their secret and is surprisingly cool about it. Or maybe she's not. Maybe she blackmails them or maybe they have to find a way to keep her quiet. PWP and smut also welcome.

Louise Chatham/Gracie/Julia
  • Preferably when they were all together as mermaids. You can go with anything you want here, a plotty re-telling to just vintage mermaid smut, I'm easy.

The Mummy Series

Anck Su Namun/Nefertiri/Imhotep && Anck Su Namun/Evy Carnahan O'Connell/Imhotep
The way she looks at them over that balcony. That isn't "you're cheating on my dad" that is pure and utter woman scorned. I'd love to see that explored. What is going on between the three of them? What is the significance of Anck Su Namun and Imhotep being together without her. Evy can be involved here, maybe she's seeing it all through her flashbacks, trying to understand why she's personally feeling such a betrayal. Do they all try to reconcile in the modern (well, you know what I mean) era? Do they kidnap Evy to resurrect Nefertiri like they did Anck Su Namun? Evy has had both women in her head, what does she thin about this? What do they both think of Evy and her similarities to Nefertiri? Be as light or as dark or as smutty as you like.

American Horror Story: Hotel

Countess Elizabeth Johnson/James Patrick March/Alex Lowe && Countess Elizabeth Johnson/James Patrick March/John Lowe/Alex Lowe && Countess Elizabeth Johnson/John Lowe/Alex Lowe && James Patrick March/John Lowe/Alex Lowe
  • I would love to see this in any form. Alex and John's failing marriage against Elizabeth and JPM's... I don't even know what to call it, divorce proceedings from hell? Obviously none of these people are quite willing to let go of their other half forever. Do they seek a buffer? Someone who knows what it's like? Or do they just want something to take their mind off it?

Countess Elizabeth Johnson/James Patrick March/Donovan && Countess Elizabeth Johnson/James Patrick March/Ramona Royale
  • The Countess doesn't like to share. But maybe she likes to show off? Maybe she brings her conquests home to her husband, teasing him, perhaps even to the point of cuckolding him, but at the end of the say, he is still her husband and they made a vow of what's mine is yours.

Countess Elizabeth Johnson/James Patrick March/Hazel Evers
  • Hazel is obsessed with James, obviously. How does she deal with his marriage? Does she eavesdrop, does she watch secretly, does she use the hotel's secret passages and peepholes for her own designs? Does she get caught? Is she punished or lovingly welcomed in? WHY IS SHE SO INTO DIRTY SHEETS???

Countess Elizabeth Johnson/Rudolph Valentino/Natacha Rambova
  • CANON! CANON POLY! Ahem. Run wild. Vampires, hell yes. Sex, hell yes. Sexy vampires, double hell yes. Elizabeth's introduction to their relationship. Is she the first? How do the negotiations go? Are there rules? Does Elizabeth understand what she's getting herself into? Are there still adjustments and jealousy? Does one like to watch the other two? Do things happen on set, behind the scenes? Which is the bigger secret?


Charmain Tully/Emma Karn/Charles Manson && Charmain Tully/Emma Karn/Susan "Sadie" Atkins && Charmain Tully/Emma Karn/Susan "Sadie" Atkins/Patricia "Katie" Krenwinkle && Charmain Tully/Emma Karn/Susan "Sadie" Atkins/Patricia "Katie" Krenwinkle/Charles Manson
  • Hahaha, ok, hands up, I want undercover Manson girl Charmain to happen. It so nearly happened but it was her and that dude and I so badly wanted to see her attempt to be one of his followers and all the things she'd have to do to convince him. So have at. All the things Charmain must do "in the line of duty". Orgies, playing with girls, acid trips, violence, murder, singing. Whatever you want. Nothing is too dark. Can she handle it or is she in over her head or do they end up brainwashing her too?

Emma Karn/Susan "Sadie" Atkins/Patricia "Katie" Krenwinkle && Emma Karn/Susan Atkins/Katie Krenwinkle/Charles Manson && Susan "Sadie" Atkins/Patricia "Katie" Krenwinkle/Charles Manson
  • I'll take all the acid trip orgies I can get with this show. However you want to play it. Go wild.


Liv/Peyton/Blaine && Liv/Peyton/Gilda(Rita)
  • I am all about Liv and Peyton so either of these threesomes and I'm a happy bunny. Anything you want to do. Light and weirdly making it work? Friends to lovers with enemies? Using sex to tame your enemy? Do they believe Blaine is good again and Liv admits she has conflicting feelings for him too that Peyton is glad to steer her through? Does the "bad guy" do something bad to them? Proxy sex around the zombie virus? Make Peyton a zombie too? PWP! RUN WILD!


Any Relationship
  • For any of these ships, my likes are pretty across the board. Anything that's got the same feel as canon. Dark, sexy, magic, fucked up, incesty, whatever rocks your boat.

Teen Wolf

Ok disclaimer here, it was easier to hit "any relationship" than narrow it down and I didn't have space to do two requests so... no pressure but if we matched on a character that is 3B onwards, you're my introduction to them, show me what they've got, we're in for a wild ride together.

Any Relatationship
  • Again, all my Teen Wolf likes are pretty applicable to any or at least many ships. I love pack dynamics, animalistic behaviour, ABO, heat cycles, predator/prey relationships, bad guys doing bad things to the good guys, age/size/strength differences, relationship negotiation, characters being coached through the change. Group sex. Puppy piles.


I know the category says Arrowverse but I don't watch Arrow so... I can't tell you what that is even. I've seen S1 of Supergirl, I'm waiting for enough free time to marathon S2 but I already know I love Lena. Firstly, I've seen gifs of her and secondly, I have a long standing love for Katie in EVERYTHING she does. So I ship Lena with everyone already. I'll have marathoned it by reveals though so don't worry about spoiling me or whatever. But please do keep everything inclusive of Supergirl canon. I'm not going to watch Arrow or whatever else is in that verse before reveals and tbh, I may not watch it at alll because I haven't yet.

Due to the fact I've only seen S1, I'm just going to list ships for this and general prompts because I don't want to limit you or prompt something that is out of context with the rest of the show. My likes are across the board. Sex, pwp, incest is a-ok, dark fics, trope fics, how ships got together and the negotiations, F/F ships putting on a show for a M. Kara getting her head around human sexuality. Kyrptionan biology! Alien sex pollen. Kara goes into heat. Anything like that. Femslash based "girls nights". Anything about Kara in her supergirl costume. Power swaps. Body swaps. Established ships bringing in the third person. Established ships getting caught and buying silence with a threesome. The third watching the established ship, getting caught and being invited in. Go Wild!!

Those of you who read [personal profile] quantumcupcakes blog already know this but I broke my wrist at the weekend. I slipped on a damn LEAF, put my hand down to break my fall, broke my wrist instead and knocked myself out. Spent a day and a night in hospital for reasons of concussion and frightened the life out of poor Samantha who's been texting me all day to make sure I'm ok.

Today I'm looking at A song that moves you forward

There's something about Bach - Toccata And Fugue In D Minor that always gets the blood pumping

I had intended on posting a meme I've seen floating around but this cast is too cumbersome. If I thought I typed slowly beforehand, I'm even slower right now. I'd still be here at Christmas - and probably the one in 2018!

I totally can see the light when it's turned to "off", i.e. when the light meter is set to 0, but only really notice it a lot at night. You guys who claim you can't see it are either lying, or my eyes are freakish. Frankly, I think it's probably the latter, given how often one of my boys complains they can't see the dogs when we are walking them after dark and I can see them perfectly fine.

Happily, Andrew's explanation of how the light works was spot on, and it doesn't bother me like a glowy phone or computer or TV screen. To give you some idea of how Lorca-ish my eyes are, though, I have it set to 2 when I'm in bed, and 5 in daylight. It goes up to about 30, by the looks of it (haven't actually counted).

I'm really REALLY happy with the cover I got for it, which is incredibly thin and light, but still feels sturdy. It also has the autowake function, which is handy. I would genuinely rec it to anyone who has a papperwit of the requisite size (that's pretty much all of them less than 5 years old).

I think I am also going to quickly get used to having Goodreads integration, which my old Kindle was too ancient to support.

All in all, I think I made the right decision. Thanks to those of you who helped by voting and commenting and things.

miss_s_b: (Politics: Democracy)
... it's because the boundary commission have released their finalised report into the boundary review, and hardly anybody is happy about it. The vast majority of politicians, you see, wanted the boundary review to advantage their party and shaft their rivals. The boundary commission, meanwhile, have been scrupulously fair, and tried quite hard to advantage nobody and shaft nobody.

Now, there is a school of thought that this doesn't matter a jot because it'll never get past parliament, requiring as it does far too many turkeys to vote for Christmas. I, for one, think that would be a shame, if only for my little home patch.

The proposals for Calderdale are basically what I would have done, were I the boundary commission. A lot of my fellow Calderdale politicians will doubtless be pissing and moaning about various bits1, although having read the report, the Tories will probably be the least annoyed of us. Here are the things I am pleased about:
  1. The two constituencies make geographical sense, for the first time in my lifetime.

  2. The town I live in can no longer be almost completely ignored by three of the five active political parties in the area.

  3. We have not created a complete dead zone for the Lib Dems in the constituency I live in, which is what would have happened had the commission accepted the Lib Dem proposals2.

  4. The constituency names, while not the ones I suggested, follow the same logic3
All in all, I'm quite happy. So here's hoping the turkeys do, for once, vote for Christmas.

1I know a bunch of my fellow Lib Dems are annoyed we haven't got a winnable seat out of it, by putting all the wards with Lib Dem councillors into the same constituency. To which I would say: did you see our vote share at the last general election? And also combining wards where we have councillors is not the only way to get a winnable seat. Look at the demographics...
2Calderdale Lib Dem membership is divided pretty much half and half, which it would not have been under the proposals the party submitted. While it will annoy EVERYBODY who wanted to be in the mythical winnable seat, gives us two live constituencies to fight for, instead of one with pretty much every Calderdale activist except my household in it.
3I wanted Calderdale East and Calderdale West and they've gone for Upper Calder and Lower Calder. I can live with that. It's miles better than their initial suggestion of calling my seat Halifax, when it only had half of Halifax and two towns that are not Halifax in.

Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

Roy Dotrice has passed away at the age of 94. May he rest in peace.

I wasn’t sure who he was at first, since I’m not interested in Game of Thrones. That is, I didn’t realize who he was until I checked IMDB and saw that he had played Roger Wyndam-Pryce in one episode (Lineage) of Angel. Now I remember him. Looking through the rest of his filmography, I have also seen him in Nightmare Classics: Carmilla (1989), Tales From The Crypt (1972), and two episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre. He was also Zeus in three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

I might need to track down his episode of Tales From The Darkside, wherein he plays "Vampire Count Jeffrey Draco."

"Wait, if you're here, where's our Frank?" Gerard interrupts.

"Isn't it like, a rule that you aren't supposed to go back in time and meet yourself?" Ray says. "Or forward, I guess."

They're both glaring at him suspiciously, like he somehow killed his future self. He can't do that, right? Unless he like, canceled his future self out by suddenly existing or something. He didn't see any other Frank around, unless he was like, hiding under the bed or something.

"He was only in there for a second!" Mikey says. "So how is he even here in the first place?"

"Yeah," Frank says wildly. "But you remember me coming back, and I'm still around, I mean, I was till now, so that means I'll go back soon and everything will be normal again. Right?"

Obviously for data protection reasons I can't go into much detail about the responses FCC got to the end of conference survey, but I do want to highlight one small area:

The impressive number of you who said Glee was the best fringe event, and the smaller but still impressive number who said we were the best thing about conference full stop, and the hardy few who said the best way to improve conference would be to have more Glee, and the one dear sweet soul who said Glee was their main reason for coming to conference?

I am genuinely touched and I love you all. Thank you. It makes it absolutely worth trying to chair a debate with a hangover and a sore throat first thing in the morning after. You guys rule.

Could it be? Did I just finish another chapter of When the Rest of Heaven Was Blue, the Buffy/Spike fic that I started in 2008? Yes, yes I did. It took me four years, and the chapter is very short, but the penultimate chapter of this albatross of a fic is finally ready. And in need of a beta. Any volunteers?

Hey, maybe I'll manage to actually finish this thing before its tenth anniversary!

Funnily, it's actually thanks to Doctor Who that this fic progressed. One of the reasons why I haven't been writing much Buffy fic in the last few years is because my main writing fandom has been The Mentalist, and my Buffy voice was too much like my Lisbon voice. I couldn't hear Buffy's voice in my head without contantly turning into Lisbon, and I can't really write a character unless I can hear them. But I've been working on a Doctor Who fic for a ficathon for the last few weeks, which seems to have cleared the Lisbon voice from my head, and now I could finally return to this fic and not keep thinking that Buffy sounded too much like Lisbon.

(of course, as I was writing this post, I realised that both this chapter of "When the Rest..." and the Doctor/Clara fic I'm working on are yet another variation of the male sleeps and the female watches... Because apparently there's exactly one romantic plotline I can write for het couples)
