This is for http://shipswap.livejournal.com/ - signups open until 8th April!
I don't have any particular squicks or triggers - in fact I'm often quite keen on terrible things happening to characters ;-). I'm not so keen on AU stuff or total fluffy no-problems curtainfic (although P'tero and M'leng are a bit of an exception, fluffy domesticity is fine here!). I think that's about it?
These are mostly copied and pasted from the other details section, but here in case you want everything in one place:
Dragonriders of Pern:
I just can't get enough of early Pern or 'minor' dragonriders :-) I'm not so interested in tab-A-in-slot-B porn here (although if you like doing porn, a mating flight would be excellent!) but more just the details of their lives (and draconic relationship meddling ;-) ). If you're looking for ideas, I'm always a sucker for Impression, first lift-off, first mating flights, first jumps /between/...
Millennium Trilogy - All Media Types:
Ship: Mikael Blomkvist/Monica Figuerola
There are shockingly few fanworks for this popular trilogy in general, and even less which is not centred around Salander. I feel kind of bad having written a fic which kind of paints Figuerola as the villain for being possessive of Mikael, and ideally I'd like to see a more sympathetic portrayal of their relationship.
If you're looking for ideas, I'm always into Figuerola being competent and impressive - maybe Mikael's run off after a lead and she has to rescue him. But these two are fascinating just sitting talking in a room - or doing other things in a room ;).
I've both read the books and seen the Swedish films (with subtitles), but I admit my request is based mostly on the books, despite the 'all media types' tag on the fandom.
Till We Have Faces:
Okay, so I'll admit it, I want fix-it where Orual gets the guy ;-) Bonus points if Bardia's wife is actually happy with the arrangement (maybe because she gets him while he's at home and Orual gets him on campaign, and Orual is actually more careful about not breaking him due to their relationship?). If you're looking for ideas, a scene on campaign where they admit their feelings to each other would work.
