Grantaire/Marius Pontmercy - The first production of Les Mis I saw had Grantaire pull Marius onto his lap and kiss him during "Red and Black", and I've been in love with the ship ever since. I’m fond of Grantaire introducing Marius to Paris and politics, and being much worse of an influence than Courfeyrac. Grantaire “corrupting” Marius is my ideal dynamic—but it doesn’t have to be sexual corruption (although it definitely can be). Nights out on the town, massive quantities of booze, unsavory characters, boxing lessons, makeout sessions…it’s all good!
Cosette Fauchelevent/Grantaire/Marius Pontmercy - I may be sailing this ship all by myself. But hear me out—you have Cosette and Marius, surprisingly fluffy and innocent given their pasts, and then you throw in cynical, sarcastic Grantaire. I love the idea of Grantaire “corrupting” them both—either in a sexual sort of way, or just making them forget about propriety for a while. Picture the Pontmercys taking Grantaire to dinner with Gillenormand, and the absolute disaster that would result.
Cosette Fauchelevent/Marius Pontmercy/Éponine Thénardier - I like this ship as either very fluffy or very angsty. (Or both, if you want to combine them!) Fluff-wise, if you want to create an AU where Éponine survives the barricades, or do some domestic scenes with the three of them (and perhaps a kid or kids?), that would be lovely!
Grantaire/Joly/Bossuet Laigle/Musichetta - Best-friends-turned-lovers is a great dynamic, and please picture the chaos these four could create. It would be marvelous. I tend to think of this as established J/B/M adding Grantaire, but I could also see established J/B introducing their new mistress to their friend-with-benefits Grantaire. I’d love to see something about them getting together, or domesticity/a date night.
The Queen's Thief
Heiro/Other Female Character - I love what we've seen of Heiro in the books, and I love the idea of Heiro femslash. I'd love to see more of her family's dynamics, love affairs that involve sneaking around the court/the palace, and/or Gen playing wingman
Attolia/Eugenides - I have loved these two since I first read the books in middle school: the balance of personal and political in their relationship, the way they're both master chess players with politics and their court, how much they care for each other despite their rocky beginning. I'd love a gift falling anywhere on the spectrum from personal to political; I love the dynamic they have together, but I also love seeing them manipulate scores of people to benefit their country. I'd also love something playing on Gen's ability to sneak around the palace unnoticed. (A note: I'd be into a gift focusing on miscarriage/grief, given the events of Thick as Thieves, but I'd prefer it to be light on the physical details of the pregnancy.)
Costis/Kamet - The culture clash between these two, Kamet adapting to life as a freedman, the sharing of myths and legends, Costis's mediocre Medean...there's nothing I don't love about these two and I desperately want more shippy content for them in my life. I'd love to see Kamet telling Costis more legends, how a romantic relationship would develop in parallel to the events in TaT, or what the two of them get up to post-Thick As Thieves (do they end up staying where they're sent, or do they get dragged back into politics?) And a porn prompt I've had stuck in my head since I read the book--Costis really wants to blow Kamet, and Kamet is absolutely scandalized, as that is not something a man like him should do to a slave. Art-wise, I'd love to see both of them reading together, or Costis interrupting Kamet's reading.
Blue Sargent/Gwenllian - I think I might be the only person sailing this ship, but I just love the idea of Blue having a bisexual awakening because of Gwenllian, and Gwenllian finding this both amusing and sexy. A few prompts follow: Blue introducing Gwenllian to modern society and technology. The women of 300 Fox Way cornering Gwenllian to give her a stern talking-to about hurting Blue, either individually or all together.
Henry Cheng/Richard Gansey III/Blue Sargent - I'd love to see the post-canon adventures of these three, and/or a gift showing how they ended up together romantically. How does the rest of the world compare to all of the crazy happenings in Henrietta? Who instigated bringing Henry into the relationship? Do they stumble across any more enchanted forests or long-dead kings?
Noah Czerny/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue Sargent - Cuddle parties! Group naps! Everyone taking care of each other. Group makeouts and/or orgies if you're into that. Maybe something exploring how they figured out the relationship/set boundaries? Or Blue breaking out the makeup and giving everyone makeovers. (Just...think about Blue's taste in clothes and then transfer it to makeup. I feel like the results would be amazing.)
Henry Cheng/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue Sargent, Noah Czerny/Richard Gansey III/Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish/Blue Sargent/Henry Cheng - I'd love this (massive) ship with or without Noah, depending on if you feel like ignoring/working around his "death" or not. All of the above with Henry added still applies. I’m also really interested in how Henry fits into the established dynamics of Blue/Gansey and/or the
Noah Czerny/Barrington Whelk - I'm very attached to the headcanon that Noah and Whelk were dating before Noah's murder. Whelk being an incredibly obnoxious boyfriend, but Noah putting up with it because it's not like there's a plethora of queer boys at Aglionby. Whelk not reciprocating during sex. Whelk being a dick, basically. And/or some post-death angst as Noah deals with the fact that his boyfriend murdered him. (Or the others reacting to Noah gradually revealing his and Whelk's relationship?)
The Magnificent Seven
Joshua Faraday/Vasquez - I loved the progression from rivalry and wariness to caring about each other that these two had in the movie, and I want all the fanworks for them, falling at any point along the development of their relationship. I've got a soft spot for fic/art showing the recovery process after an AU where Faraday survives the battle at Rose Creek, although I'd definitely be down for Vasquez mourning Faraday's death as well
Sam Chisolm/Joshua Faraday - I love the contrast of Faraday's attitude to Chisolm's, and if you're into porn, I'd love some daddy kink and/or Chisolm calling Faraday 'son'
The Bright Sessions
Mark Bryant/Damien - I love this ship anywhere from fully consensual to creepy mind-control noncon (with either party doing the nonconning/mind-controlling). I've really enjoyed Mark's angst and confusion about not being able to separate out what Damien made him feel from what Mark actually feels in the latest episodes, and I'd love a gift playing with that. I'd also love something set during the post-coma roadtrip, maybe with Mark reacting to all the things he's missed while imprisoned/in a coma, or something exploring the mind control (when did he figure out Damien was lying to him? How does he try to work around the mind control?)
Joan Bright/Ellie Wadsworth - Everything about their relationship is like, my f/f catnip. I'd love a pre-canon gift focused on Joan hero-worshipping and trying to impress Ellie, or an in-canon gift where they're in a hatemance and/or hate-fucking. I'd love to see them doing science together, or Joan's reaction when she realizes her girlfriend has kidnapped and imprisoned her brother.
DC Cinematic Universe
Diana/Etta Candy - I loved this ship the minute Etta and Diana first spoke, and I'm eternally sad that there's not more content for them. I'd love to see Etta introducing Diana to the modern world: shopping for clothes, trying ice cream and other modern delicacies, holding babies (maybe Etta is an aunt?) or whatever else you can think of. It could also be fun to have Diana tell Etta about Themyscira, or teaching her languages or how to fight. I'd also love a gift touching on the loss of Steve, and/or the aftermath of the war. I'm also really into the idea that Diana finds Etta incredibly gorgeous, because she looks so different from the Amazons and Diana has never seen a woman like her (if you want to include this in porn featuring body worship, I'm 100% in).
Diana/Isabel Maru | Doctor Poison - I'm into this ship as either Maru->Diana noncon, or an enemies-to-lovers/redemption arc story. As noncon: I'm really into the idea of Dr. Maru finding Diana's abilities just fascinating, and running all manner of nefarious experiments on her. As enemies-to-lovers: I love the idea of Maru falling for Diana when Diana spares her life, and ends up reforming (at least somewhat) to impress Diana. Especially if she ends up following Diana around conspicuously doing Good Deeds/helping her save the world. (Feel free to take that as seriously or as cracky as you want.)
