Dear Author/Artist letter for the Fandom Growth Exchange 2015

Salutations fellow rarepair author/artist! Needless to say, if you are willing to produce a fanwork for one of my tiny yet dearly loved fandoms, I'm already very excited. Below I've included a list of overall likes/dislikes and a little bit about each fandom/pair on my list and what I love about them specifically. Hopefully this will help you out when working on my gift.

I'm a huge sucker for happy fluffy things and when it comes to fanworks this is no difference. I don't mind the characters facing a daunting struggle, but I like my endings happy and hopeful. Some of my favorite tropes to hit are- bickering like a married couple or flirting while bickering, what happens after the "happy ending" / where do they go next with their relationship, females being awesome and badass (even if they are visually "girly girls"), the power of friendship, hugging and forehead touches, adventure and humor.

Angst/darkness with no point or purpose, cynical/dark endings, pregnancy/kid fic and art, abusive relationships, noncon of any kind, overtly sexual themes (PG-13/fade to black please!), potshotting/using a character's voice to bash another character, side pairings with characters not listed in prompts.



I have a major soft-spot for femslash in the Pokemon games and these pairs are no exception. A few little things I'd love:

May/Lisia - I'd love to see May trying to get Lisia to adventure outside the Contest world. Go trekking all over Hoenn on adventures together and falling in love/more in love in the process.

May/Zinnia - I feel that Zinnia left a lot unsaid when she left in the game, and I'd love to see May tracking her down and confronting her about it. Let them get all emotional and just have a good yell/cry at one another before resolving things and starting a relationship.

May/Lisia/Zinnia - Flustered May between two forward ladies and unsure how to deal with all the attention. Please make it a true polyship and feel free to explore it from all angles of it.

Skyla/Elesa - These two are really an opposites attract situation and I'd love to see that explored. What does Elesa think of Skyla's dangerous gym setup / what does Skyla think of the fashion world?

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Juhani/Female Light-side Revan - I'd love to see anything post-game (and willfully ignorant of the second game's plot for Revan) exploring where the two go from the ending. How do they balance their Jedi ideals with their blossoming love? Do they ask others on the crew of the Ebon Hawk for advice? Do hilarious mishaps and hijinks ensue? Just have fun with it!

Disney's Hercules (1997)

Hercules/Megara - This is my favorite Disney movie and I adore the relationship between the two. Anything set post-movie would be utterly wonderful exploring where their relationship goes from there.

Pixar's Inside Out (2015)

Joy/Sadness - This movie really hit a personal chord with me and I'd love to see anything post-movie exploring how Joy and Sadness can really work together as a unit to tackle life and how the other emotions help or inadvertently hinder their attempts to work things out.

Axis Powers Hetalia

Prussia/Switzerland - I love what little bits these two have had in canon (especially the route of the game where Prussia helps Switzerland garden) and adore exploring the hilarious hijinks a relationship between them could create. Anything with this pairing that has humor, romance and a happy end is golden in my book.

Darkwing Duck

any pairing (Darkwing Duck/Launchpad, Darkwing Duck/Morgana) - Does it involve puns, sidekicks/ladies saving the hero, and family time with Gosalyn? Then I'm good. Honestly, I just would take anything for either ship here - DW/LP or DW/M.

Disney Ducks (Comics)

Donald Duck/Daisy Duck or Scrooge McDuck/Goldie O'Gilt anything and I'm a happy person. Comics canons I am personally fond of are Don Rosa, Carl Barks and the Margarida series from Brazil.
