Thanks so much for creating something for me! I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] originally on AO3 and most other platforms.

I've requested fic or art for all of my fandoms and I'm happy to receive a gift of any rating, including smut and PWP. In terms of format, I'm open to anything. I love all kinds of unusual and experimental stuff if that's your thing, including but not limited to found footage; mixed media; non-linear; vignette forms; epistolary; interactive fiction; and metafiction. I don't expect you to necessarily follow any prompt to the letter; feel free to use bits, or pull prompts apart and put them together in different ways, or just go with general likes and your own ideas.

General trope or narrative likes include:
  • loyalty kink
  • basically anything that focuses on issues of honour/duty and how those intersect with personal relationships
  • mentor/mentee dynamics
  • snark and banter
  • competence
  • hurt/comfort
  • bathing/grooming/shaving/dressing or undressing
  • brotherhood and (found) family
  • pining
  • (unresolved) sexual tension
  • codependence and 'us against the world'-type dynamics
  • bed/tent sharing and huddling for warmth
  • stoic/non-demonstrative characters showing affection in their own way
  • 'desperate last stand' situations

  • lovers on opposite sides of a conflict or antagonistic characters forced to work together for a common cause
  • all kinds of time travel stuff/groundhog day/loops and reincarnation
  • dimensional travel and the boundaries between worlds
  • characters meeting at the wrong time/missed connections (or generally might-have-beens and fics that are wistful in tone)
  • identity porn of all kinds
  • road trips as a metaphor for coming of age and relationship developments
  • outsider POV
  • opposites/contrasts (class differences, age differences, themes of life/death, ice/fire, faith/skepticism, permanence/ephemerality etc. etc.)
  • ambiguity/grey morality
  • mad science and/or transhumanism
  • transformation and/or body horror
  • religion and ritual

  • comeplay/facials
  • rimming/felching
  • oral sex of every kind
  • hatesex/rough sex
  • sex with plenty of kissing
  • fingering and fisting
  • finger sucking
  • non-penetrative sex/frottage, especially intercrural

  • public sex/exhibitionism/voyeurism
  • body worship
  • praise kink
  • BDSM (particularly ropes or other bondage, blindfolds, spanking, sensation play)
  • edging and denial
  • xeno (including tentacles)

In terms of art likes, I'm so bad at prompting for art but I'm sure if you make something that comes even vaguely in the direction of my general likes, I'll love it. More specific art stuff: I'd be more than happy to receive smutty art if that's your thing. Just like with fic, I'd be happy for you to experiment with format or palette on me (including meta stuff like in-game documents). I like focus on clothing details (and particularly if you wanted to draw someone in clothes from another genre like steampunk or Age of Sail). Portraits for any of my requested characters/pairings would be great, or an action scene from one of my longer prompts.


And finally, please do not include any of the following in my gift:
  • mundane/modern/depowered AUs (ie. canon divergence is welcome; coffee shops or high schools are not)
  • curtainfic
  • A/B/O dynamics
  • mpreg
  • watersports
  • scat
  • public humiliation
  • "lifestyle" or 24/7 D/s
  • infantilisation or age play or use of the word 'daddy' in a sexual context
  • wingfic
  • graphic depictions of rape (references, or dubcon scenes, are fine)
  • graphic depictions of torture (references are fine)
  • death of a requested character (I'm okay with deaths of background characters or reactions to canonical deaths)


A Song of Ice and Fire


More specific prompts for each pairing are below, but in general, if you write or draw some kind of hurt/comfort, huddling for warmth, loyalty kink, squiring, sparring, or shaving scene for any of these pairs, I would be delighted. I also like Jon/Ygritte so please don't bash her or the pairing (but feel free to just ignore her completely)

Mance Rayder/Jon Snow
I like the mutual respect that they develop for one another, and their similarities in both being outsiders and Night's Watch oathbreakers who become leaders. However, they also have some interesting differences: stoic, reserved Jon vs Mance the charismatic bard. I'm also a fan of the aesthetics of the North and the Night's Watch and wildling lore and customs if you want to work some of that in. Jon swearing fealty to the King? His compulsion to kneel even though wildlings don't bend the knee? Maybe they have some kind of custom where the King can 'steal' recruits to his bed? I don't know, it can be as handwavey as you like, really. It could be canon divergence AU (e.g. could silver-tongued Mance have convinced Jon to actually turn his cloak? Would they have managed to defeat Stannis' army or would they all have died in a blaze of R'hllor's fire? Would The Ghost or Lord Snow have become a wildling name to conjure with?), or a missing scene during the march from the Frostfangs, or something around the Rattleshirt reveal, or post-Pink Letter. You could also have one or both of them angsting over Qhorin's death.

Jaime Lannister/Brynden Tully
In AFFC, Jaime spends a deal of time thinking about how much he has always admired the Blackfish, to the point where, as a young man, he ignored his prospective bride Lysa Tully in favour of listening to Blackfish's stories. At the same time, the Blackfish is quite clearly the old-fashioned euphemistic sort of 'confirmed bachelor'; though his sexuality is never explicitly stated, I think we have enough hints about his refusal to marry and his rift with Hoster to speculate in a fairly educated way that he is not interested in women.

For this pairing I would love it if you focused on that knightly admiration and borderline hero-worship that Jaime has going on, and Brynden's reaction to it. If you wanted to write something set in the past, either some UST or a near miss or straight-up smut with a young and golden and eager Jaime and a reserved but flattered Blackfish showing him the ropes, that would be lovely. Or you could have present-day Jaime reflecting on his complicated feelings and how they're tangled up with his sense of his own worthlessness (shit for honour, lost sword hand) compared to the Blackfish, that shining paragon of knightliness.

At some point Jaime suggests he will treat with the Blackfish and kill him if he will not yield, and Genna Lannister responds, scornfully, "how, with your tongue?"; I'd like to hear the story where he tries some unconventional negotiation methods.

Stannis Baratheon/Jon Snow
The thing I love about Stannis and Jon is that they have so much mutual respect and they're so similar in many ways. They're both quiet and reserved, both skeptics, both value duty above almost everything else - but Jon values his honour higher, and that's the cause of some very interesting conflict canonically. Even though they have a large age difference, Jon is a leader and that gives him some leverage and power in his interactions. It's also clear that he's one of the few people that Stannis hears out when it comes to tactics, something that Melisandre makes a note of.

I'm open to anything that explores their interactions whilst Stannis' army are at the Wall: their conflicts and discussions, missing scenes of one of them observing the other, etc. Ratchet up the UST levels. If you want to go porny, I'm definitely open to an argument that goes too far turning into borderline-hatesex. Otherwise, give me future fic or canon divergences: Jon in the Kingsguard, for example, gives ample opportunity for loyalty kink, or a role reversal with Jon as King/Stannis as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch could explore power dynamics.

Deus Ex

Adam Jensen/Talos Rucker
I'm really fascinated by Rucker as a character but he was only in the game for such a short time. I'd like to know more about life in ARC, the politics of aug activism, the others he met along the way. How does he feel about his own augs (which, like Adam, seem to have been a matter of life or death)? I'd like to see an AU where had more time to develop a relationship with Rucker--either where Adam succeeds in stopping Rucker's death, or where Adam had to infiltrate ARC more deeply at an earlier point, or even one where he joins ARC in earnest (is there something that could make him do that?). Where would they agree or disagree?

Viktor Marchenko/Talos Rucker
I really love the double agent aspect of this, and I think the fact that Marchenko will inevitably participate in Rucker's assassination makes any potential exploration of their relationship particularly charged and interesting. How far is Marchenko willing to go to maintain his cover? Was there any point where Rucker could have actually turned him to his side? I think some kind of one-sided dubcon hatesex where Rucker is oblivious to Marchenko's true feelings would be perfect for this pairing.

David Sarif/Hugh Darrow
I love mentorship dynamics when it comes to ships and this is a really interesting one. I'd love to see something from their early time working together. Did they ever clash over their different backgrounds? What about Hugh's reaction to David's augmentations - jealousy? Lust? Both? Something set either immediately before or after Panchaea could be interesting, exploring Darrow's rejection of their ideals.

David Sarif/Vaclav Koller(/Adam Jensen, if you want!)
So, I just think this could be a really fun ship. Koller is super into Adam's SI tech so would that transfer to the man himself? How would David deal with Koller's, er, level of enthusiasm? Or would they maybe clash, since Koller doesn't seem to share David's idealist transhumanist politics?

David Sarif/Jim Miller/Adam Jensen
I feel like this would be the snarkiest threesome ever. I don't even know how they would end up in the same place - maybe after the London mission, or Sarif's help is needed on a TF29 thing somehow, or Jim just calls him up to complain about Adam after Adam does his insubordinate thing one to many times. I don't even care how much you have to handwave to get them together, because I'm mostly interested in the dynamics between them. Possessiveness over Adam would be particularly amazing, and Adam kind of long-sufferingly having to mediate.

Dishonored

Emily Kaldwin/Billie Lurk
I think identity porn would be perfect for this pairing. Could be a one night stand or something more long term, but I'd like to see them get together in the Dishonored 2 timeline, before Emily knows who Billie is. What happens when she finds out? Would Billie still tell her eventually? Could they ever reconcile who Billie was with what was between them?

Something where they both have to work together for a common cause after Billie gets powers could be fun too. Would their ways of working be compatible? Would they be able to put their differences aside?

Stuff that I particularly love about this canon includes: the steampunk aesthetic with the blending of magic and technology, the cult-worship of a trickster god, the grey-morality and ethical dilemmas, and the assassin stuff just generally but particularly the stealth aspects. Focus on any of these in a work for me would be A+.

Killing Eve

Carolyn Martens/Eve Polastri
I love their slightly weird mentorship dynamic. Eve teases Elena for her crush but I thought it was pretty clear that she had some hero worship going on as well. I think it could be really interesting to explore, and especially to think about how they might move from that to sex. It must be pretty lonely in the job Carolyn's in and her personal life is clearly a disaster. I'd be equally happy with something where they try hard and make it work or something where they fail. I also liked how straightforward Carolyn was about the idea of other spies trying to honeypot her. If Eve tried to seduce her, would she think the same? Would she go along with it anyway?

Something that delved into Carolyn's shady spy activities (past or present) would be great (I haven't read the books so I'm not sure what the actual story is going to be, but speculation is fun). I'd especially love some cat-and-mouse as Eve investigates her but tries not to let on.

Something where Eve asks Carolyn for her memories of Bill could be really interesting for this pairing. More generally, I'd enjoy something addressing Eve's grief and anger over his loss.

Sunless Sea

I love everything about this world: the vast unfolding story, the Lovecraftian/cosmic horror and monsters lurking in the darkness, the motifs of life and death, the steampunk Victoriana and machinery and weird science. I got captivated by Zubmariner's ambition and the story of Lorenzo in particular, as it seems to bring together a bunch of these favourite things. I've played Fallen London although not so much recently; you're welcome to bring in any lore that's not in Sunless Sea, or not, as you see fit.

Aurelian/Lorenzo
Individually, both characters are fascinating. I'm interested in Lorenzo's surface explorer past and how it led him to the Neath, chasing immortality--is becoming the moth life enough? Or world building around tomb colonists and moths. What exactly makes this particular moth the Most Moth?

Conversely, the Aurelian: his scientific curiosity, his ambition and what seems to be a ruthless streak in pursuing that Victorian obsession with categorising and cataloguing everything. What else has he seen? How far did he "serve" in the name of science? There are certainly some indications that the Aurelian is not all that fond of Lorenzo; is he in this only for what he can learn?

I think it could be interesting to look at the soft parts and hard edges of their relationship and find the line between caring/studying/loving--and does that shift with the moth transformation? Or, let's be honest here, I would love it if you created straight-up xeno porn.

Arik/Lorenzo
Something from their past: romance in the heat of battle, the bright flame of revolutionaries for the cause. Did they expect to spend their immortality together? What of their age and cultural differences? Or something from their present: their correspondence, their regrets, their longing. Something focusing on the Seven more generally could be good too. Why are they among the few people in the Neath who use names? Is it a deliberate defiance of convention, are they immune to whatever 'true name' magic might exist? I'd also enjoy a story that made more of the Greek/Roman myth elements here (the Seven Against Thebes, the Aeneid, Cumae and the underworld?), or even Stone's outsider POV on their quest.

The Technomancer

Andrew Mancer/Zachariah Mancer
The dynamic between these two is so great. Childhood friends who reconnect after years apart, but with power differentials and mentorship aspects? Yes please. The scene where Zach initiates Andrew was brilliant and I'd love something that played with these issues some more. Andrew's intense desire for a technomancer master and his borderline hero-worship of Zach as 'someone I want to be like', and Zach's new dual role as both mentor and lover. How do they negotiate that, in the field and in the bedroom? And particularly after Zach becomes Great Master? How do Andrew's daddy issues intersect with Zach's? How do they deal with conflicts that arise, like if Zach makes the secrecy choice against Andrew's advice? Or adjusting to their new self-conception and societal role as mutants rather than humans? For Andrew specifically, I would love something with him readjusting to life with his rediscovered technomancy. It must be a big adjustment to make, suddenly having things that he lost and grieved and got used to being without: his arm, his powers, membership of a brotherhood, a master. Are there downsides?

Sean Mancer/Zachariah Mancer
So I'm definitely here for the mentorship, the mildly-incestuous brotherhood aspects, and maybe a splash of daddy kink (though, please, without the actual word 'daddy'). Zach says that Sean was a rebel; how did he balance teaching Zach the rules while dealing with his own doubts about what they were being asked to do? Did he choose to take on Zach as an apprentice or was he assigned? Did he know about Scott's experiments? Was there something about Zachariah Rogue that appealed to that rebelliousness? Something tropey here could also work well, e.g. huddling for warmth? I'm always here for shaving or squiring or bathing kink. Or sparring that leads to sex? If you want to do something set in the future timeline, maybe Zach finds Sean miraculously alive (handwave it however you need to) and they have to deal with that reunion and all it entails?

Zachariah Mancer/Anton Rogue
Anton Rogue is just so amazingly sleazy. The relationship between him and Zach is super interesting, with that mixture of paternal and antagonistic aspects. When people like Alan say 'Zachariah Rogue', it's clearly meant as a put down, but somehow 'Zach Rogue Mancer' feels more like... a reminder? Like he's laying claim? I think there's a lot to work with there. Similarly with the other great lines of dialogue between them, like Anton saying "I'll be dreaming of that lost handshake". I'd love hatesex for these two (or hatesex-turned-inconvenient-feelings).

Bioshock Infinite
Booker DeWitt/Elizabeth, Elizabeth/Songbird, Rosalind Lutece/Robert Lutece

Booker DeWitt/Elizabeth: Any kind of dark Booker/Elizabeth (I've made this exact same request before and I will never tire of seeing takes on it!). Obsessive and twisted love is my jam, so I'd definitely enjoy something where the 'us against the world' dynamic is turned up to 11, especially if they know it's wrong and can't help it, or think that's part of why it's hot. Something like '5 times they did/could have destroyed the world for each other', maybe. Or even the one where Booker lets himself become Comstock, knowing what he knows. 

Elizabeth/Songbird: Some worldbuilding/character study of Songbird through this pairing would be great. Does he have motivations of his own? Is there a human inside the way there is with a Big Daddy, and if so, who? (please feel totally free to speculate or even try out a few options--Booker is an obvious interesting potential option, but so is Lady Comstock, or some poor random sap, or, or). Otherwise, I'm very much open to ideas but a few suggestions:
- What if he didn't always give her privacy when she dressed?
- Elizabeth fantasising about Songbird. He's the one friend she has, the being she's closest to. 
- You could make this beautifully fucked up if you wanted to make Booker the one inside the Songbird.
- Just show me how sex between a girl and a giant mechanical bird thing would look - how do they negotiate that?

Robert Lutece/Rosalind Lutece:
I'd love dark incest/selfcest scenarios. Is Robert the first of the alternate selves Rosalind found, or just the one that survived? The one-sided nature of it could be ripe for angst too (see, for example, Robert's ultimatum to Rosalind and her unwillingness to be parted from him; her reference to King Lear could also relate to the tests of devotion).

Alternatively, I'm interested in exploring their meetings with Booker and Elizabeth throughout the game and the DLC, particularly their choice to stay as beings dislodged in dimensions rather than put things back as they were. It fits with the air of detached scientific curiosity even when everything is going wrong and "mad science" for the sake of science, without thought for the consequences. Any variations on these themes would be great. 
 
Deus Ex
Allison Stanek, Talos Rucker, Adam Jensen/Talos Rucker, Adam Jensen/Viktor Marchenko, Adam Jensen/Zhao Yun Ru, Adam Jensen/Adam Jensen, Adam Jensen/Jim Miller/David Sarif

Allison Stanek: She's such a great character and I was really happy to get a closer look at some of the Church of the MachineGod stuff, which I find endlessly interesting. If you wanted to give me a slice of augmented cultist life, that would be amazing. Did she ever doubt or was she always firm in her faith? What about her conflict with Severn? I think it would be interesting to see her interact with Adam more; with so much of him augmented, he's something of a transcendentalist wet dream. I really enjoyed the familial way she talked to Adam (which I think ties into some of Adam's personal journey with self-conception and kinship with other augs). I don't mind how you get them together - maybe he needs a consult on a case involving MachineGod cultists? Or maybe something that fills in some of her backstory, becoming augmented and during the aug incident? Or her internal conflict about making the bombs? 

Talos Rucker:
I'm really fascinated by him as a character but he was only in the game for such a short time. I'd like to know more about life in ARC, the politics of aug activism, the others he met along the way. How does he feel about his own augs (which, like Adam, seem to have been a matter of life or death)?

Adam/Rucker or Adam/Marchenko:
My interest in Adam/Marchenko is partly just because there's a certain appeal in Adam having menacing hatesex with large augmented dudes but I think it could be interesting to maybe see an AU where Adam had to infiltrate ARC more deeply (or even joins ARC in earnest? Is there something that could make him do that?) and had more time to develop a relationship with Rucker and/or Marchenko. What would that look like? What are the points of convergence and divergence between their worldviews and personalities? Would it be possible for those gaps to be bridged?

Adam Jensen/Zhao Yun Ru: She's badass and she manipulated Adam as easily as breathing. I really just want more antagonistic mind games and aug fights and hatesex, either during the HR timeline or you could do something interesting with the idea that her consciousness became part of the Hyron Project - maybe she survived as some kind of AI version, or even merged with Eliza? 

Adam Jensen/Adam Jensen: Okay, so clonecest. I think there are some really interesting options to play with when it comes to the clones. I think it could be really fascinating for an Adam at a point in the future, or just an Adam soon after the events of MD, to meet a recently-defrosted clone without those experiences - maybe one that only has memories up to the Aug Incident, or the Sarif attack, or even a pre-augmented Adam. Or play with the idea that the version of Adam that wakes up in Alaska is not the original; that kind of existential crisis could make for some great angst (or hatesex).

If you have non-clone selfcest ideas, I would also love to read those. Time travel? Dimensional travel (especially if Adam meets some kind of AU Adam from another time and/or genre: pulp hardboiled detective Adam? Steampunk Adam? Space opera assassin Adam? Go nuts). 

Adam Jensen/Jim Miller/David Sarif: I feel like this would be the snarkiest threesome ever. I don't even know how they would end up in the same place - maybe after the London mission, or Sarif's help is needed on a TF29 thing somehow, or Jim just calls him up to complain about Adam after Adam does his insubordinate thing one to many times. I don't even care how much you have to handwave to get them together, because I'm mostly interested in the dynamics between them. Possessiveness over Adam would be particularly amazing, and Adam kind of long-sufferingly having to mediate. 

Dishonored
Billie Lurk/Emily Kaldwin, The Outsider, Kirin Jindosh, Clockwork Soldier/Kirin Jindosh

These games have a lot of ingredients that were guaranteed to make them a hit with me: the steampunk aesthetic with the blending of magic and technology, a fascinating magic system, quasi-religious cult-worship of a trickster god, grey-morality and ethical dilemmas. Assassins! Magic assassins! Stealth and street gangs and terrifying clockwork robots. 

Billie/Emily: Identity porn would be perfect for this pairing. Could be a one night stand or something more long term, but I'd like to see them get together in the Dishonored 2 timeline, before Emily knows who Billie is. What happens when she finds out? Would Billie still tell her eventually? Could they ever reconcile who Billie was with what was between them? 

I think something casefic-ish could be really fun here too, where they both have to work together for a common cause after Billie gets powers. Would their ways of working be compatible? Would they be able to put their differences aside?  

The Outsider: I think the thing I'd really like with the Outsider is his interactions with those who interest him. Who are some of the people he has marked over the years? 

You could also focus more on Outsider worship as a concept than him as a being; ordinary citizens who keep shrines to him, for example, and how they keep themselves hidden from the Abbey of the Everyman.

Kirin Jindosh or Jindosh/Clockwork Soldier: He seems to get on better with machines than people, who are basically just puzzles for him to figure out. I'd love to see any kind of scene of him interacting with his soldiers: building them, testing them, talking to them... The prototypes with their 'human-like faces' are also terrifying and amazing so please feel free to run with any and all creepy ideas relating to them. His description of the design/testing process and how people found the ones with faces less scary is fascinating to me, and I'd love that to be explored further. Obviously the logical conclusion to liking machines better than people is robot sex: they have plenty of... appendages that could be put to use. Or electricity? And the cameras! Would they also announce what was happening in Jindosh's own voice? Enquiring minds etc. 

Dragon Age
Renn/Valta, Dagna/Valta

Renn/Valta: 
I fell in love with these two during The Descent and I'd love something that explored their history together. They've been working together for three years, but how did they get on at first? Did Renn always feel such loyalty to her or did he resent being asked to drag a historian around at first? What other things did they see down in the Deep Roads, either wondrous or terrifying? What is daily life like for a Shaper or for a Legionnaire? Was their sexual tension unresolved or did they snatch moments together when they could? Smut or tender moments or longing would all be awesome. 

Dagna/Valta:
A dwarf who devoted her life to magic and the first dwarf to ever wield magic. I would love to see them interact. Maybe an AU where Dagna was on the Deep Roads mission, or Dagna crafts a device to help her locate Valta once the party tells the tale back in Skyhold, or Valta returns to the surface for some reason (maybe bringing a message from the Titan, or something linked to the journal pages that show up? Or she's just keeping an eye on the surface) Bonus points for Dagna undertaking a sexy study/worship of Valta and how she is connected to the Titan and the Stone. 

Mass Effect
Female Shepard/Morinth

I've always been fascinated by Morinth and the concept of Ardat-Yakshi in general: the parallels with vampires or spiders, the fuck-or-die (or fuck-and-die!) elements, the taboo and the sense that they are a 'punishment' for Asari who engage in forbidden behaviour. 

I'd really love something with a Shepard who is complicit with Morinth's killing. It could be a Shepard who started out evil but a corrupted or codependent Paragon could be a fascinating take. Maybe Shepard finds victims for her and either watches voyeuristically or participates in threesomes as a proxy for sex with her. Does she succumb to Morinth in the end anyway? (I always appreciated that the game let me do that!) Vivid depictions of Ardat-Yakshi death-sex very welcome.

Sunless Sea
The Incomparable Aurelian/Lorenzo, Arik/Lorenzo, The First Curator, The Irrepressible Canoneer

I love everything about this world: the vast unfolding story, the Lovecraftian/cosmic horror and monsters lurking in the darkness, the motifs of life and death, the steampunk Victoriana and machinery and weird science. I got captivated by Zubmariner's ambition and the story of Lorenzo in particular, as it seems to bring together a bunch of these favourite things. I've played Fallen London although not so much recently; you're welcome to bring in any lore that's not in Sunless Sea, or not, as you see fit.

Aurelian/Lorenzo: Individually, both characters are fascinating. I'm interested in Lorenzo's surface explorer past and how it led him to the Neath, chasing immortality--is becoming the moth life enough? Or world building around tomb colonists and moths. What exactly makes this particular moth the Most Moth?

Conversely, the Aurelian: his scientific curiosity, his ambition and what seems to be a ruthless streak in pursuing that Victorian obsession with categorising and cataloguing everything. What else has he seen? How far did he "serve" in the name of science? There are certainly some indications that the Aurelian is not all that fond of Lorenzo; is he in this only for what he can learn?

I think it could be interesting to look at the soft parts and hard edges of their relationship and find the line between caring/studying/loving--and does that shift with the moth transformation? Or, let's be honest here, I would love it if you created straight-up xeno porn.  

Arik/Lorenzo: 
Something from their past: romance in the heat of battle, the bright flame of revolutionaries for the cause. Did they expect to spend their immortality together? What of their age and cultural differences? Or something from their present: their correspondence, their regrets, their longing.

Something focusing on the Seven more generally could be good too. Why are they among the few people in the Neath who use names? Is it a deliberate defiance of convention, are they immune to whatever 'true name' magic might exist? I'd also enjoy a story that made more of the Greek/Roman myth elements here (the Seven Against Thebes, the Aeneid, Cumae and the underworld?), or even Stone's outsider POV on their quest. 

The First Curator: Again, world building around tomb colonists and frost moths. Why do some choose the Sanitorium and fear the moths, while others purposely seek the moths? Must all moths take their colours from the Neathbow or is that particular to the Keeper-Moth? The relationship between moths and light seems particularly fraught in a world so sunless; do they get stuck at the Ragged Crow forever? Or explore the question the game asks of the Keeper-Moth: does it remember the flesh it dwelt in? Visceral, sensual descriptions of the moth metamorphosis would be excellent. Alternatively, digging into the First Curator's backstory could be fun. Who was it before? How did it end up where it is? Does it have relationships with other Third City characters?

The Irrepressible Cannoneer: 'Once a leading light at the Department of Infernal Rarefactions; but there are only so many Deans you can set on fire before they lose their sense of humour'. Okay, so mad science, academic politics and devils combine in this character and I'd love to get any kind of backstory or character study for them. Maybe digging into the 'old days' that the Affable Factor is so reluctant to talk about? Or their relationship with the Tittering Artificer? How did the plans for the Icarus in Black even come about? I think there's something really interesting in the juxtaposition of eerie cheerfulness with an obsession with infernal weapons of destruction that run on human souls. 

I'd prefer the canon nonbinary pronouns for the Canonneer but I'd rather not get anything that focused on their gender identity.


The Technomancer
Andrew Mancer, Andrew Mancer/Zachariah Mancer, Sean Mancer/Zachariah Mancer, Zachariah Mancer/Viktor Watcher, Zachariah Mancer/Anton Rogue

Despite a bunch of clunkiness, I really liked this game. It had some fun characters and some cyberpunk themes that I always find interesting (particularly the underlying humans/metahumans/mutants conflict, although I'm also always a sucker for religion-tinged space brotherhoods with strong mentorship dynamics, thanks Star Wars). The worldbuilding has so much unrealised potential that would be cool to see explored in fanworks: what is daily life for technomancers like in peacetime? Or for the other Mars denizens? Does the average person think about Earth that much, or is the concept more like a distant fairytale? How do the various ending options change that?

Andrew Mancer:
Instant fave; I always fall for the handsome, charming rogue, but even moreso if he has some kind of tragic backstory and/or hidden powers. I would love something with him readjusting to life with his rediscovered technomancy. It must be a big adjustment to make, suddenly having things that he lost and grieved and got used to being without: his arm, his powers, membership of a brotherhood, a master. Are there downsides? Alternatively, you could focus on his years away--what kind of adventures did he have as a merchant? Or maybe a piece about older Andrew and his technomancer apprentices. 

Andrew Mancer/Zachariah Mancer: The dynamic between these two is so great. Childhood friends who reconnect after years apart, but with power differentials and mentorship aspects? Yes please. The scene where Zach initiates Andrew was brilliant and I'd love something that played with these issues some more. Andrew's intense desire for a technomancer master and his borderline hero-worship of Zach as 'someone I want to be like', and Zach's new dual role as both mentor and lover. How do they negotiate that, in the field and in the bedroom? And particularly after Zach becomes Great Master? How do Andrew's daddy issues intersect with Zach's? How do they deal with conflicts that arise, like if Zach makes the secrecy choice against Andrew's advice? Or adjusting to their new self-conception and societal role as mutants rather than humans?

Sean Mancer/Zachariah Mancer: So I'm definitely here for the mentorship, the mildly-incestuous brotherhood aspects, and maybe a splash of daddy kink (though, please, without the actual word 'daddy'). Zach says that Sean was a rebel; how did he balance teaching Zach the rules while dealing with his own doubts about what they were being asked to do? Did he choose to take on Zach as an apprentice or was he assigned? Did he know about Scott's experiments? Was there something about Zachariah Rogue that appealed to that rebelliousness? Something tropey here could also work well, e.g. huddling for warmth? I'm always here for shaving or squiring or bathing kink. Or sparring that leads to sex? If you want to do something set in the future timeline, maybe Zach finds Sean miraculously alive (handwave it however you need to) and they have to deal with that reunion and all it entails?

Zachariah Mancer/Anton Rogue: Anton Rogue is just so amazingly sleazy. The relationship between him and Zach is super interesting, with that mixture of paternal and antagonistic aspects. When people like Alan say 'Zachariah Rogue', it's clearly meant as a put down, but somehow 'Zach Rogue Mancer' feels more like... a reminder? Like he's laying claim? Idk but there were other great lines of dialogue between them, like Anton saying "I'll be dreaming of that lost handshake". I'd love hatesex for these two (or hatesex-turned-inconvenient-feelings). 

Zachariah Mancer/Viktor Watcher:
So Zach Mancer has a bunch of daddy issues wrapped up in his multitude of paternal figures, and then Viktor Watcher comes along and tries to insinuate himself into that role too. I thought every interaction they had was pure gold. Viktor's interest in the techomancers' secret, his obsessive focus on Zach in particular, his creepy faux-paternal offers of help which Zach keeps sidestepping, his praise when they meet again ("such tenacity"). Why is he so determined to find out the secret? Again, I think hatesex would be great for these two. Or something more on the creepy/dubcon side (I kind of have an image of Viktor stroking Zach's face against his will, too much tenderness for the relationship they have). Maybe an AU where Viktor manages to capture Zach? 

Crossovers
Deus Ex/The Technomancer: Adam Jensen/Zachariah Mancer
Okay, so I know this seems like an unlikely crossover but bear with me. I think they'd be really interesting characters to see interact. Both have been experimented on, both have been granted abilities that make them a little more than human, as well as both powerful and feared. Both have a strong desire to help those in need.

If you wanted to just do a straight-up fusion that has Adam growing up in the Technomancer universe or something like that (Adam Watcher, maybe? Some starcrossed lovers stuff or something where he questions his orders like in DX canon?), I would be more than happy. But my suggestion for a crossover would be to pull heavily on the points of cyberpunk genre convergence between the two canons, particularly the corporate dystopia and genetic engineering aspects. For example, consider that Versalife, by a sequence of takeovers and mergers, becomes Abundance. Consider one of the many Adam Jensen clones finds its way to Mars and, maybe, its unique genetic material is used in gene therapy experiments. Consider that Zachariah Mancer, newly-minted Great Master in search of more Earth knowledge, discovers a box with a cryofrozen clone in it. I'd love to see Zach geeking out over meeting a real earthling and getting to ask his questions, and maybe finding out that Earth wasn't that much better in the end? And Adam reacting to being in an unfamiliar space, far from home in time and distance, and maybe the existential clone stuff? There's a lot of potential here. I'd also be open to a Zach/Andrew/Adam threesome.

Bioshock Infinite/Deus Ex: Booker DeWitt/Adam Jensen
Canon dimensional travel makes imagining crossovers much easier. It could be really interesting to have Booker step through into Detroit in 2027 or Prague in 2029. How would vigors play out in the DX world? Could a Comstock-style takeover happen in Deus Ex, or would he find himself up against the Illuminati? Would Adam hunt him down? Would rough, fighty sex happen? He and Adam would probably not get on; Booker's really not a nice guy, though I guess they both know a thing or two about self-loathing. 

Alternatively, have Adam end up in Columbia or Rapture somehow. Maybe Booker takes him through personally. How would he adapt to that world? Would he use vigors? Adam's 'save the world' instinct would be interesting to explore in a totally different dystopian context. 

Bioshock Infinite/Dishonored: Corvo Attano/Booker DeWitt
Booker is a guy who is capable of both becoming a fanatical tyrant and the symbol of a revolution, depending on which tear you look through. Corvo is a pragmatic assassin intensely loyal to the Kaldwin regime. Would they spectacularly hate each other, or would they find something to admire - their devotion to their respective daughters, perhaps? The willingness to go to any lengths to save them? I think it could be really fun to see something that pitted them against each other. How would vigors stack up against Outsider powers? Or for that matter, would the Outsider take an interest in Booker? Or maybe they have to put aside their differences and work together to defeat some common enemy? Interaction between Emily and Elizabeth could also be really fun!

Deus Ex/Dishonored: Adam Jensen/The Outsider, 
Corvo Attano/Adam Jensen
So, a big part of these requests is because I'd love to see Adam in the Dishonored universe (you could do it the other way around if you want and have a cool idea, but my preference and my prompts are for this way). A fusion would be really fun: I'd love to explore the Dishonored version of augs - would they be clockwork? Made by Jindosh, maybe? And who would Adam be in this world - a Dunwall guard? A rich man's private security? An Overseer with doubts about his orders? Or a crossover, where the DX version of Adam ends up crossing into the Dishonored universe somehow. 

But regardless of the setup, Adam would definitely be the kind of person The Outsider would take an interest in. What kind of powers would he get? How would he adapt to having them? What would he do with them? Would the Outsider's mark just turn out to be another way that people have messed with his bodily integrity? Or would he see some of his own situation in the Outsider's own? Their personalities would clash brilliantly, though, so I'd love to see that play out. Possibly with void sex.

With Corvo, I think it could be really interesting to see a conflict between a low-chaos Corvo/lethal Adam or vice versa. Could they find a common ground? How would the events of the Dishonored games look different if Corvo had Adam to assist him?
