Wishing you well! This my first time participating, and I'm very excited!

 

I should say right off the bat that my prompts are only here for guidance, not as anything you are obligated to right for me. If you have your own idea for the pairing that fits with my likes, it’s more than okay with me if you want to write that.

 

Also, feel free to mix and match my prompts with different pairings and fandoms. If it’s somewhere in my letter, it’s something I’m okay with receiving for any canon or character.

-Homophobia*

-Issue fic

-Misogyny

-Character-bashing

-Irreparable harm to characters with no chance/hope of recovery

 

*I know homophobia/biphobia would/does exist in some of these canons, but I would vastly prefer if you just took the route where homophobia/biphobia is completely a non-issue and is just as readily accepted as heterosexual relationships.

 

**To expand on my thoughts about bi erasure, I would prefer that if you are writing a same-sex pairing where one or both of the characters was presented with heterosexual inclinations in canon (ie, interest in the opposite sex, opposite sex love interest, etc.) that they be presented in the fic as bisexual rather than gay.

 

 

The Trixie Belden Mysteries (Books)

General

Just for reference, I see Dan being fifteen in canon (his age was never truly given) and Jim being seventeen (his age was inconsistent). I also picture Dan’s loss of his parents to be within less than a year of himself coming to Sleepyside, rather than when he was younger.

 

Fandom specific DNWs

Emphasis on Dan’s criminal past***, Jim/Trixie, Mart/Diana, Brian/Honey.

 

Dan Mangan/Jim Frayne

I would just love to see some Dan hurt/comfort. I know it might seem ridiculous, but any of the typical hurt/comfort tropes are fine with me. Maybe Dan gets beat up pretty badly as a result of Trixie’s detective work, or worse, sexually assaulted, and Jim has to comfort him. Or I’d love to see a fic with Jim bringing Dan out of his shell and just letting him know he’s safe around them. Or maybe Luke from Black Jacket Mystery was really Dan’s abusive boyfriend and Jim finds out once he starts trying to woo Dan? Perhaps Dan develops an eating disorder because of all the intense stress he’s been through, and Jim tries to help him through it?


Dot Murray/Trixie Belden 
I'd love to see these two meet during a case--maybe Dot is ice-skating or modelling some place where there's been sabotaged, and she helps Trixie catch the crooks? Or a noir-inspired tale where Trixie is a hard-boiled detective and Dot is the glamorous lounge singer and they have a romance? I'd love a fic about these two meeting during college and getting together, or settling down in a home together. Maybe they meet after Dot has gone onto win an Olympic Gold Medal? Or perhaps Diana has gone into fashion design, and Dot is one of her top models, and Trixie meets her at Diana's premiere fashion show?Or just any other canon-compliant or AU fic you'd like to write for these two.

 

G.I. Joe (Cartoon)

General

So, I know Duke basically died in the movie, but I’d really prefer to ignore that. Actually, if you like it, feel free to ignore the movie entirely.

 

I know it’s canon that Falcon often screws up and goofs off, but I’d really prefer any fic about him to portray him as a talented agent and someone who takes his job seriously and does it well.

 

I’m a hurt/comfort junkie, so feel free to use any hurt/comfort tropes you like for Falcon, as long as he’s able to recover from his injuries.

 

Fandom specific DNWs

Duke’s death, Falcon currently using drugs

 

General Fic Ideas

If you’d like to go in a humor/crack direction, I really love the idea of Duke being an overprotective older brother, sort of like Thor and Loki in this MCU fic, and Falcon tolerating it but also sometimes becoming exasperated with Duke’s antics.

 

Similarly, maybe you would like to a fic about five times one of the Joes found Falcon hot but was too intimidated by Duke to make a move, and the one time a Joe got the nerve to ask Falcon out?

 

If you want to do a type of origin story for Falcon in lieu of the movie events, I think it would be cool if Falcon joined the Joes to prove himself to Duke, but to prevent Duke from interfering, completed his initial training to be accepted into the Joes with Sergeant Slaughter and the Renegades rather than with Beach Head.

 

I really like the idea of Falcon being Duke’s unofficial and silent support assistant within the Joes, who goes the extra mile to ensure things run smoothly. I would love a fic where a visiting general comes along and the Joes need his approval to secure new funds or to continue operating, and the guy propositions Falcon, who agrees as long as the Joes get what they need in return. Falcon feels guilty and ashamed, but he is also convinced he did the right thing to help the Joes. Maybe Dusty or Beach Head then comforts him afterward?

 

If you’d like to use an angsty backstory for Falcon, I thought of this idea where he gets into drugs at 17/18 years old and becomes involved with the Headman or some other neerdowell, and, unbeknownst to his family, prostitutes himself for drugs or drug money. The Headman can either be his pimp, or just the abusive boyfriend he’s only staying with to score drugs. Sergeant Slaughter finds Falcon, helps him straighten out, and then brings him into the Renegades. How do these events effective Falcon in forming other romantic relationships?

 

I’d also be really eager for a fic with Falcon showing off his skills and proving his competence and gaining admiration from the other Joes.

 

Beach Head/Falcon

This is an unlikely pairing if there ever was one, but I love it nonetheless. If you want it go with the idea of Sergeant Slaughter training Falcon before the latter is formally inducted into the Joes (See: General Fic Ideas), I can see Beach Head initially being super unimpressed with Falcon and acting very harsh toward him. A fic I’d love to see is Falcon proving himself to Beach Head and the Joes, and Beach Head very grudgingly becoming impressed and then realizing he’s falling for Falcon.

 

If you’d like to write a mission fic, I would love to see Falcon and Beach Head needing to go undercover as a couple. I can picture Beach Head being really pissed that he’s working with Falcon, but then Falcon’s coolness under pressure and skills and talents impress him enough to start a romance.

 

If you wanted to write a plot based on an episode, I’d be fine with anything, but I think it would be really cool if Beach Head fully realized his feelings for Falcon in a “There’s No Place Like Springfield”-type of scenario.

 

Bottom!Falcon if there’s sex, please.

 

Dusty/Falcon

Another unlikely pairing, but I think Dusty is a really sweet and nice guy, and I’m curious to see how a relationship between him and Falcon would work. Feel free to use any of the previous ideas I mentioned in this fandom section, but I would also be up for Dusty and Falcon being stranded/taken captive together, and then Dusty confessing his feelings for him.

 

Bottom!Falcon if there’s sex, please.

 

 

The Fast and the Furious (Movies)

General

I’m not really looking for fic beyond the first movie, but if you want to bring in Brian’s past and friendship with Rome, go right ahead!

 

I also really love the gang from the first movie, so if you want to set this in a ‘verse where Jesse isn’t dead and Leon is still around, go ahead.

 

I love Dom and his friendships with Brian and Vince, as well.

 

Vince/Brian

I really enjoy the antagonism between these two, and I think it would translate into a very fun, teasing romance. I can see the two of them keeping it real for each other and refusing to accept the other’s BS, and I can also see Brian sort of being the ice to Vince’s fire and calming him down when he’s close to losing his temper. I also like the idea of Vince being very rough and tough on the outside, but a big softie inside, which Brian knows exactly how to use to his advantage.

 

For an AU, I really like the idea of Vince and the gang first meeting Brian when he’s functioning as a cop—like, maybe there’s a break-in or robbery at the garage or cafe and a customer calls the police. And Vince really doesn’t want the cops hanging around, but he can’t help but get hot for this one,which he’s not all that happy about and the gang teases him about. And then they meet Brian again at a race and he reveals that he’s Bullitt, or something like that.

 

I also like the idea of Vince getting really jealous and possessive of Brian, and sexing him up again and again and marking him to show that Brian is his.

In general, Vince just topping the fuck out of Brian.

 

Vince worrying over and being protective of a pregnant Brian, who’s really calm and cool about the whole thing. Also, maybe Vince is turned on by the idea of Brian being pregnant with his kid, or Brian getting breasts and lactating?

 

Hurt/comfort with Vince showing his softer side by taking care of an ill or injured Brian.

 

Bottom!Brian if there’s sex, please.

 

 

Archie Comics (Comics)

General

This is one of my favorite Reggie moments.

 

I’ve tried to devise specific prompts for each pairing just to give you an idea about what I like about each relationship, but feel free to mix and match the prompts for whatever characters. You want to write about Kevin convincing Jughead to join the yearbook staff with him? Please do! You want to write a Reggie/Kevin superhero AU? Go right ahead; I’ll be eager to read.

 

I really like it when Veronica and Reggie (especially Reggie) show their softer side. I see Reggie more as a sarcastic, cynical guy than a legitimate jerk, but there's no denying he can have a nasty streak sometimes. I love Kevin being class president and a member of the debate team, and I love Betty and her various community projects—my favorite stories are the ones where she teams up with Ronnie or corrals her into helping her.

 

By no means do you have to write smut for any of these pairings, but if there's sex, I'd like bottom!Kevin, please.

 

Fandom specific DNWs

Any type of plot involving homophobia where Kevin is concerned, character elements exclusive to the 2015 Archie Comics reboot or Jughead (2015) series (obviously, this doesn’t apply to Principal Stanger, as he only exists in the 2015 series).

 

General Fic Ideas

An idea I had for a general fic is where Kevin’s military dad doesn’t approve of Kevin’s boyfriend (either for a silly reason, like they support rival football teams, or a legitimate reason, like honestly believing the guy is a bad influence on Kevin), and Kevin has to help his boyfriend win his dad’s approval. Or you could do a five times plus one fic where his dad didn’t approve of the boy Kevin brought home, and the one time he did. Or maybe Kevin invites the unapproved boyfriend along for a family vacation, forcing his dad to put up with him, only for the boyfriend to prove he’s really a good guy?

 

If you want to go for awkwardness/humor, maybe five times Kevin’s military dad walked in on Kevin with his boyfriend gettin’ busy, and the one time he walked in on them being innocent?

 

Reggie Mantle/Kevin Keller

I just love this page of Reggie helping Kevin choose outfits for a first date. Maybe a fic where he drags Kevin shopping with him, which Kevin good-naturedly puts up with?

 

I really want to see a fic with these two getting together. Maybe Kevin opens up to Reggie about the difficulties of moving all over the world all the time, and Reggie tells him how hard it is to have his parents gone all the time?

 

I'd like to see Reggie meeting Kevin, and Kevin just being his friendly self, which brings Reggie to fall for him. Maybe it's a gradual thing—Kevin was handsome enough for Veronica to fall for him right away, but maybe it takes sometime for Reggie to realize his feelings. I really like the idea of Kevin becoming involved in all sorts of extracurriculars, and Reggie signing up for them, too, as he realizes he wants to be around Kevin. Since Kevin's new in town, I think he'd be more willing than anyone to give Reggie a chance. If you read Kevin's origin issues, Kevin befriended one of the kids he used to be bullied by and helped him into a better home situation—he's just a really nice guy that I can see Reggie letting his guard down around without fear of looking weak or making himself vulnerable.

 

Or maybe a fic of Kevin dragging Reggie along to his various clubs and meetings, and Reggie pretends to dislike it, but secretly is glad for the companionship?

 

If you like, you could take inspiration from the comics’ canon fairytale AUs and place Reggie and Kevin in a fantasy setting. I would them as two knights on a quest, or for Kevin to be in the role of Snow White or Cinderella (instead of be stuck doing housework, he’s always moving away) with Reggie as Prince (maybe-not-so) Charming.

 

Jughead Jones/Kevin Keller

Specific DNW

I realize the Jughead 2015 series presents Jughead as asexual, but I’m not particularly interested in receiving a fic focusing on this characterization.

 

I think these two are really sweet together. I love the contrast between their personalities, and I’d love a fic that emphasized Kevin as the ultimate overachiever and Jughead as laidback and not at all bothered by anything. I can easily see Kevin becoming super stressed and running himself ragged with being involved in his various activities. Maybe Jughead does something nice to relax him, like plan a picnic or take him to the amusement park? Perhaps he cares for Kevin so much that he’s even willing to ask a favor from Veronica to help Kevin, and uses her influence to take Kevin to a fun concert or similar? Or maybe Jughead just does something to show Kevin he doesn’t have to be perfect all of the time?

 

Another idea is just to have other citizens of Riverdale commenting on the unlikeliness of the pairing while Kevin and Jughead have fun together. I love little bits and cameos from the various Archie characters throughout the decades.

 

Samuel Stanger/Kevin Keller

I really would like to see a fic with Principal Stanger lusting over Kevin and using some leverage to coerce him into having sex with him. Perhaps Kevin does to appeal Jughead’s expulsion, and Stanger makes a deal that if Kevin has sex with him, he’ll let Jughead back into school, and then at the end reveals he already agreed with Jughead’s dad to lift the expulsion anyway? For extra angst bonus points, Kevin could have an unrequited crush on Jughead, and Stanger could taunt him with the knowledge that his feelings aren’t returned as he fucks Kevin.

 

Or maybe Stanger takes it to the next level and his plans are discovered by Jughead and the gang sooner, so he has to go on the run and takes Kevin as a hostage, only to find himself strongly attracted to him?

 

Or if you’d rather write a fic of Stanger just creepily perving on Kevin and trying to “save” him from “troublemakers” like Jughead, Archie, and Betty and isolate him so he can manipulate him, I would love to read that, too. Maybe even Stanger can’t handle the idea of being attracted to a teenager, so he tries to convince himself the reason he likes to watch Kevin during gym class and invites him to private lunches with him is because he thinks Kevin would make the perfect soldier? I think it would be great if Kevin was aware Stanger’s attitude about him was weird but didn’t quite pick up on everything, but Colonel Keller did and instantly rushed in to shut Stanger down and bust him as a disgraced spy.

 

 

Riverdale (TV)

General

I understand Sheriff Keller is a controversial character, but I really enjoy him and his relationship with Kevin, so I’d really like for his portrayal to be positive.

 

I’ve tried to devise a few specific prompts for each pairing just to give you an idea about what I like about each relationship, but feel free to mix and match the prompts for whatever pairing. .You want FP fending offer amorous johns from undercover-as-a-hooker!Kevin? Go for it! You want Joaquin spoiling Kevin by buying him expensive gifts? I’d love to read that, too.

 

Fandom specific DNWs

Any type of plot involving homophobia where Kevin is concerned, character elements exclusive to the 2015 Archie Comics reboot.

 

FP Jones/Kevin Keller

If you wanted to tackle an A/B/O fic, I had this one idea where FP is a disgraced alpha because his omega walked out on him and his children, which is the ultimate sign of an unworthy alpha. For whatever reason, omega!Kevin offers to mate with FP out of necessity (Maybe Lodge Industries has moved to Riverdale and is going to provide a vital economic boost to the area, but the town is worried the Serpents might stir up trouble, so their mating is a sign of allegiance, or something?). FP accepts because he feels that his kids, Jughead and Jellybean (and maybe Joaquin? He could be adopted) need a mom. And as FP sees Kevin helping them get their lives back together and cooking for and taking care of his kids, he gradually starts to fall for him.

 

I’d like to see a fic where FP is getting his life back together, maybe moving into a more stable house with Jughead, and for whatever reason, Kevin is coming around a lot (maybe he’s tutoring Jughead? Or maybe he’s really good with home repairs and their house needs some work?) and FP realizes he’s hot for him. Whether Kevin ever realizes FP’s feelings is up to you, but I’d like a fic with FP lusting over Kevin and then feeling guilty for perving on one of his son’s friends.

 

FP isn’t really the knight in shining armor type, but he’s not without decency. I’d like a fic where Kevin is being blackmailed or exploited in some way, like being forced into prostitution or stripping, and FP shows up and rescues him/helps him get to a better place, in his own rough-around-the-edges way.

 

Any scenario that has normally rough-and-tough FP letting his soft side show through and taking care of or protecting Kevin.

 

Fic where Kevin is lactating (can be due to pregnancy, or A/B/O-related reasons, or anything you please) and FP is really, really turned on by his breasts and is really eager to play with them and drink from them?

 

Fic where Kevin is investigating with Betty and Jughead, and he gets into some kind of trouble, and FP has to go bail him out?

 

AU where FP decides what Kevin really wants is a daddy, and so he himself seduces Kevin instead of Joaquin?

 

Joaquin DeSantos/Kevin Keller

I would really like to see angst after Kevin discovers the truth about why Joaquin was dating him. I’m fine with Joaquin either trying to win Kevin back or his feelings for Kevin not being strong enough to continue the relationship after the charade is over, but I would really like to see an exploration of Kevin’s sense of heartbreak and betrayal. Would he be willing to give Joaquin another chance, or would he be too angry and humiliated?

 

Alternatively, what was the moment Joaquin realized he was truly falling for Kevin?

 

If you want to write a more action-oriented Kevin, maybe he teams up with Betty and Jughead to solve Jason’s murder, and meets Joaquin along the way and starts a romance?

 

An AU where Kevin is part of a street racing team with maybe Reggie, Moose, and Archie, and meets Joaquin during an illegal street race, and maybe rescues him from the cops (and later reveals that he’s the sheriff’s son)?

 

Fic where Kevin is lactating (can be due to pregnancy, or A/B/O-related reasons, or anything you please) and Joaquin is really, really turned on by his boyfriend’s breasts and is really eager to play with them and drink from them?

 

An idea I kind of like is Joaquin working really hard (and maybe going to an enthusiastic FP for advice) to convince Kevin to date him, and Kevin is reluctant because he’s had a long string of bad boyfriends. None of Joaquin Serpent-style grand romantic gestures work, but then he just does some small, insignificant thing that convinces Kevin he’s really a good and dateable guy.

 

Sheriff Keller/Kevin Keller

Feel free to go smutty with this pairing. I would love to see a fic where the Sheriff takes Kevin’s virginity, and Kevin is shy and reluctant, but the Sheriff gently but firmly doms him through it.

 

I am down with anything hurt/comfort for Kevin, and I would love to see anything with the Sheriff being protective of him.

 

Maybe a snowbound thing where they’re both lost in a blizzard, and they find shelter but Kevin’s hurt, and so the Sheriff has to take care of him and keep him warm?

 

Alternatively, a sheriff is an elected official, so maybe someone blackmails Kevin into having sex with him so the Sheriff can keep his job, threatening to spill dirt on the Sheriff or refuse campaign funds unless Kevin agrees?

 

For something lighter, perhaps Kevin is running himself into the ground with all of his extracurricular activities, so Sheriff Keller insists Kevin take a day off so he can take care of Kevin? Or maybe just a fic of him worrying that Kevin is wearing himself out, so he’s always trying to make sure Kevin is eating and sleeping enough?

 

Sick fic with the Sheriff taking care of Kevin?

 

If you want to do humor/awkward fic, maybe Betty and Jughead have Kevin go undercover as a hooker/stripper to dig up leads for one their investigations, but the Sheriff is on an undercover job of his own, and they run into each other? Perhaps the Sheriff fends off several amorous johns/potential clients of Kevin’s along the way?

 

Or maybe the Sheriff spots some of the other guys getting really handsy with Kevin, and then later that night really possessively sexes up Kevin again and again until Kevin is absolutely exhausted and overstimulated to make sure Kevin knows who he belongs to?

 

But if you would like to do something fluffy, I would love a fic with the Sheriff taking care of Kevin after a particularly intense night of sex, or Kevin going throughout subdrop and the Sheriff comforting or reassuring him.

 

I’d also be fine with the Sheriff spoiling Kevin with expensive gifts because he wants his baby boy to have the best, and Kevin being genuinely unassuming and flattered and grateful for the gifts.

 

 

Fantastic Four (Movies 2005-2007)

 

Johnny Storm/Ben Grimm

Feel free to pull any backstory or general info from the comics that you want, as I love the comics, too.

 

I’d love a fic where Johnny proves he how much he loves Ben and that’s he not shallow. Maybe Ben worries about hurting Johnny with his size/strength, and Johnny reassures him? Maybe Ben is worried about hurting Johnny during sex, and Johnny demonstrates just how much he wants Ben? Maybe after they announce their relationship, some rude journalist is needling Johnny during an interview about dating someone as “below his level” as Ben, but Johnny absolutely shuts them down?

 

Alternatively, Ben and Johnny raising children together and just doing married couple things? Or Johnny gets pregnant and is pretty relaxed about the whole thing, but Ben is super protective?

 

Also, if you want to give Sue or Reed’s perspective on the relationship, go ahead. I imagine both would be pretty relieved that Ben found happiness with someone and that Johnny is with someone responsible and dependable.

 

Feel free to write smut for this pairing, but by no means do you have to.

 

 

DCU (Comics)

General

If you’d like to read about the history Gar’s character, or that of the various Terras, I found a very long and detailed analysis here.

 

Gar Logan is definitely my favorite DC character of all time. One recurring theme in later comics books and adaptations that continually frustrates me is when Gar is shown as incompetent, completely lame, or a total joke to make other heroes look more cool. I’d really like to have a fic where Gar’s leadership and/or strategy abilities are emphasized, as well as his kindness and generosity.

 

If you want to write Gar as being able to shift into a regular person/regular animals, please feel free.

 

I loved his characterization in Wolfman and Perez’s New Teen Titans: he runs his father’s company in his absence, he’s still traumatized from losing the Doom Patrol, he falls for Terra only to be betrayed by her, and then his pain from losing her is resurrected when Terra II comes along. I like that as friendly as he seems, he still has a dark side, as seen when he kills Madame Rouge and attempts to kill Slade Wilson. I also liked that Slade was sort of Gar’s mentor for a while.

 

Bottom!Gar if there’s sex, please!

 

Fandom specific DNWs

Beast Boy/Raven, Damian Wayne

 

General Fic Ideas

During the Darkening plotline in the 90’s, evil!Raven raped Gar and brainwashed him into being evil. Maybe write a story where Gar is recovering from his rape with the help of his friends and teammates?

 

Gar is a character who I feel is often unfairly stereotyped and dismissed. Possibly a five times fic where a hero or villain underestimated Gar, only to have him prove them wrong? Or if you just want to have Gar interacting with other heroes and solving crises, that would be wonderful!

 

I would love a fic with Gar proving his competence to people, always being the team member with a plan, or simply being the supportive figure other characters can go to with their problems. I would love something with Gar cementing his badassness to the rest of the team.

 

At the beginning of New Teen Titans, Gar is a young teen (sixteen years old, and the youngest on the team) who has gone through enormous trauma. Maybe a fic with him working through the major changes in his life and coping with his resulting issues?

 

An AU where Gar is working for the bad guys, either through brainwashing, desperation, or being forced into it, and then helping save the world (or similar) during a crisis and being welcomed to the team.

 

I enjoy characters with dark pasts or inner turmoil, and I also like villains having a fascination for heroes. Maybe a villain is trying to sway or tempt Gar to the dark side, or something happens that Gar’s friends or other heroes begin worrying about this happening?

 

If you’re interested in writing about Slade Wilson and Gar Logan, either platonically or romantically, please go ahead. The conversation between Slade and Gar at the diner at the end of the Judas Contract was one of my favorites. I also liked how Gar was sorta-kinda Slade’s substitute son for a while. If you want, write about Gar being swayed or tempted to the dark side by Slade, or Gar’s friends or other heroes worrying about this happening.

 

Maybe an AU where Gar is the mole of the Judas Contract, and is either sleeping with Slade or just Slade is his adoptive dad, and then Gar falls for Dick or Vic, and decides to work with the Titans for real?

 

I also love Gar’s relationship with Steve Dayton, his adoptive father, and Questor, Steve’s assistant.

 

Slade Wilson/Gar Logan

The conversation between Slade and Gar at the diner at the end of the Judas Contract was one of my favorites. I also liked how Gar was sorta-kinda Slade’s substitute son for a while. If you want, write about Gar being swayed or tempted to the dark side by Slade, or Gar’s friends or other heroes worrying about this happening.

 

Maybe an AU where Gar is the mole of the Judas Contract, and is either sleeping with Slade or just Slade is his adoptive dad, and then Gar falls for Dick or Vic, and decides to work with the Titans for real?

 

Dick Grayson/Gar Logan

A fic with Gar killing Madame Rouge as he did in the comics and the rest of the team reacting to it. When Gar was sixteen years old, he killed Madame Rouge in a fit of madness, and immediately regretted his actions, denouncing the idea of murder as revenge. Yet even though most of his teammates, particularly Wally and Dick, would have had an issue with him killing someone, we never see their reactions, and it’s never really mentioned again. What do his teammates think? Is the Justice League more wary of him and deciding he needs to be assigned a mentor to monitor him? Maybe heroes unassociated with the League actually congratulate him on it, which upsets and confuses Gar?

 

Dick and Gar began working together when Gar was young, only sixteen, and Dick was several years older than him. Does Dick ever feel guilty or conflicted about involving a minor on the team when the rest of the Titans are adults?

 

Competence!kink: Gar runs around saving the world, stopping the bad guys, and impressing other heroes without missing a beat, while Dick is just proud and like, “That’s my boyfriend!”

 

Dick reflects on how Gar has strengthened and improved as a hero over the years. Gar is badass and suave.

 

Vic Stone/Gar Logan

I love that these two went from antagonizing each other to being very close, despite Gar being only sixteen to Vic’s nineteen. I think it’s interesting that Vic wonders about the origin of his friendship with Gar after seeing the uncle-nephew relationship of Gar and Robotman. I love that Gar was the one to rescue Vic during the Technis Imperative.

 

If you want to make Vic more techno-organic, as he is in the New 52, with him being able to switch between appearing as human and cyborg, and Gar able to shift into a regular person/regular animals, please feel free.

 

Ideas are the moment when one of them started to fall for the other, or sixteen-year-old Gar trying to woo nineteen-year-old Vic, who is determined to wait until Gar is legal, or Vic and Gar shacking up somewhere in the countryside and opening their home to be a sanctuary for traumatized/injured/exhausted heroes. If you like, you could write a fic where Gar and Vic are the “parents” of the Teen Titans household, with the Young Justice Four (Tim, Kon, Cassie, and Bart) as their “children,” and super fun Aunt Kory dropping by for dinner every so often. Or if you want to write a non-powered AU to this effect, I’d like to read that just as much.

 

If you want to go dark with this pairing, maybe the Justice League (or a single hero) decided to kill Vic during the Technis Imperative because he posed too great of a risk, and now Gar must cope with Vic’s loss while struggling with the knowledge that his friends supported the idea of killing his boyfriend/husband?

 

X-Men (Comics)

Fandom specific DNWs

Rogue/Gambit

 

General

I really like idea of a setting similar to the original movie trilogy where Bobby and Jean-Paul are teenage students at the Xavier Institute and still learning how to control their powers. I would have requested the movies had Jean-Paul appeared, but alas, he did not.

 

I love Jean-Paul as a character. I love that he’s cold, sarcastic, aloof, and a little bit snobby, but I also love his tragic background. I thought his role in the Age of Apocalypse comics was kickass, and I also loved in the main comics when his powers got amped up by the Children of the Vault.

 

Bobby Drake/Jean-Paul Beaubier

I like the idea of Jean-Paul being completely unimpressed by Bobby and dismissive of him when they’re at school together, and so Bobby works hard to impress him and prove he’s worth Jean-Paul’s attention. Maybe he always goes the extra mile in training to make sure Jean-Paul notices him?

 

I also love hurt/comfort, so if you’d like to write a fic about these two being stranded somewhere together, or Jean-Paul coping with an eating disorder or a sexual assault, please feel free to write that.

 

Bottom!Jean-Paul if there’s sex, please.

 

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my letter!
