Great to see you here for this wonderful exchange. I've offered up prompts and/or vibes for all the ships and characters I've requested, but if you get a brilliant idea that's not here then please go for it! Have a great time :)
H/c, found family, polyamory, happy endings, fluff, friendship.
AUs: Mundane, sports, workplace, pack (with or without werewolviness), magic, creature (especially incubi/succubi).
Anything about scents, whether that's ABO-style scent-marking, more general scents on peoples' clothes or when near their skin, or the scents of things in the standard environment, like nature or food or fabrics.
I'd love to read the thing you've been working on but haven't had an excuse to finish.

Spending downtime together: a shared hobby, just laying around not getting out of bed, getting groceries
Previous relationships (platonic or otherwise) being relevant to the characters
Cultural exchange- languages, food, music, holidays, Important Stuff, unimportant stuff, anything :)
Gonna just try on this section, apologies if it doesn't work or doesn't make sense.
I like it when art uses a color pallette and puts it on the side? I really like sky-like palettes, like blue-yellow-grays, or earth-like pallettes like red-brown-dark green.
For solo requests I'm totally down with an action pose or something of a character looking cool or heroic, or similarly just of them being comofy and happy, or doing something they find fun.
I don't go for wallpapers but I don't have anything as a lockscreen at the moment so if you like doing that sort of thing I'm totally here for it.
I'd love to see a new style you're working on that maybe you haven't mastered yet, or just whatever kind of materials/style you have the most fun working with.
Any sort of words or symbols in art is cool with me- speech bubbles or floaty things or sound effects are all awesome.
I don't super like manips that use images of actors when they're not being their characters, unless they still *look* like they're in-character.
I'm very down for AUs in art- if you want to, for example, create Hardison and Gus as teammates on a competitive chess squad I would cry with joy.
Use of the spelling 'cum.' It is fine to use 'come.'
Mafia or mob AUs.
Fandoms and ships are not listed in any particular order.
[Mens Hockey RPF]
Fandom note: In general for hockey fics, I tend to assume that RL romantic partners and children are ignored. My prompts won't include these people, but if you want to write fic that includes these people either as individuals or as a concept for whatever reason, I don't have a problem with that.
Hockey-specific DNW: Please no tentacle-dick ELC AU for people I'm requesting who are actually on their ELCs currently or in the near future.
I like that hockey has a lot of magic or creatures AUs, so if you're looking for something a bit off from the standard universe those would be great. I'm also a fan of more hockey-specific AUs like hockey gods or kneeling verse. I also like AUs that involve the team as an in-group of some sort. Those include team soulbonds, werewolves, anything with a strong focus on group hierarchy, basically anything that has team members looking to each other for socializing and support. Some of my favorite things about hockey fics are those that focus on the idea of bonds between teammates, how the specific set-up of a hockey careers can lead both to strong relationships with people, places, and organizations, and to sudden changes in circumstance.
Group: Zayde Wisdom & or / Any Flyer: Zayde is so super cute, here look at some pictures (and also a childhood photo bc it's so sweet). He's also such a hard worker and clearly has a lot going on upstairs, here read an article about him. I already love him and I would love to read fic about him training up with the Flyers, or something with a time skip as he gets to know the team. He was at the training camp this year and played in the televised scrimmage so he was there!! It's canon. I'd like to read anything shippy or friendshippy with anyone on the current team, especially TK and NoPat. I'd also love to read any of the common hockey AUs (see my hockey likes below) from the perspective of someone just coming into the league!
For current context, Zayde is going to be playing with the Phantoms in the AHL in PA until junior hockey starts up again, and technically can get called up to the taxi squad or the NHL (though the Flyers would have to be pretty darn injured for that to happen).
Zayde is also good friends with Wayne Simmonds, requested below, so I'd love to see him included as well. If the fic goes into the future and they end up playing against each other that would be amazing to read xD
Because Zayde is A Youth I'm not looking for fics with lots of involved sex. M-rated or fade-to-black would be the highest I'd prefer for a shipfic but if you prefer to write explicit please keep it, like, vanilla? Sorry I know that's not the best guidance but I won't be super criticial on it. If you're writing future fic I'd feel more chill about it.
Pierre-Olivier Joseph: A young defender on the Penguins who has just been called up due to our spate of injuries and is getting lots of minutes and looks really good! And is actually interesting to listen to in interviews
Group: Marc-Andre Fleury/Ryan Reaves: Two funny, friendly guys who I think just missed each other? on the Pens and now are together on the GKnights! I don't watch much in the West, so I haven't seen anything of the two of them together, but I'm assuming this ship was nominated for a reason and I want to know!! What it is!! I feel like these two teaming up for pranks would be Excellent, like direst cruelty, but I'd also love to read anything about that first Cup run, or anything in last season or the current season, or future seasons. Also something where big mean guy on the ice is soft for his goalie would be :))
Wayne Simmonds: As a Penguins fan, I wasn't planning on requesting Simmer, but then I saw this picture and now I just want fic of him getting duly worshipped by the youth on the Leafs. Shippy or explicit or platonic and fluffy, up to you. Other Leafs can be included too but I'm here for fluffy camaraderie in that case.
If you're pretending him signing with the Leafs didn't happen, I get that xD I'd like to read something shippy, pairing is up to you, or something from my hockey likes (see above) or general likes. Happy ending, please!
If you just came here for Simmer prompts he's also good friends with Zayde Wisdom, see above, so that would make for excellent fic as well! Friendship/mentorship :)))
Fandom note: Although this is considered an RPF fandom on AO3, I prefer to approach it as a fourth-wall-secure show about people who make a TV show. For one thing, the way Nicole acts toward Wes would probably be sexual harassment if it weren't scripted. But also, I like the characters they play during the episodes and would prefer that characterization to any non-Nailed It! characterization of, say, Nicole Byer in her personal life or on another role.
Group: Nicole Byer/Wes: I love Nicole and Wes. She is so thirsty, and he seems to have a good sense of humor about it, and about the silly things he has to wear every episode. I also loved the one Holiday DIY episode where Wes wasn't there and Nicole was distraught and started calling the other guy 'Wes Two'.
Group: James "Rhodey" Rhodes/Nebula: I loved that these two were put together in Endgame. I think there are a lot of different facets to be explored between them. Nebula has a bloody and traumatic history, but she has recently been on a path toward a different kind of life: one involving close relationships, a new understadning of the universe, and healthy ways of living and looking at things. Rhodey has been career Air Force, but in just the last few years (before Endgame) superheros have appeared, he became an Avenger, and his life turned around. Aliens are new, too. And then, he had a life-changing injury while working as a superhero and had to adjust to a body that worked very differently from how he was used to, and then Stark tech got involved. I would like to see something set after the events of Endgame (though you can change them as much as you'd like, it's the setup and dynamics I like), involving these two building on the camaraderie or friendship that were built in that movie. If you wanted to write gen for this pair, I honestly wouldn't mind, it's their journeys and their dynamics that I'm the most interested in.
Group: Wanda Maximoff/Ava Starr: So much destructive potential here. Both of these women have been through a lot- lots of science experiments, lots of loss. They see the world very differently than the people around them. They'd be very powerful together, for better or worse.
[Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)]
Miles Morales: Miles was such a loveable protag, especially when those particular aspects of him being a young teenager came out, like being uncertain about approaching girls, missing going to school with his friends, not wanting other kids he knows to see him being driven to school by his dad, or hugging his dad at the end in his Spidey suit. I would love to read something about him growing up and the changes he goes through in perspective and maturity. Outsider POV would also be cool for this, or one or both of his parents. I'd also be interested in reading about how his relationship with them changes, as it already was in the movie, including or not including the specific issues with him being Spider-Man. I would also love to read something about Miles being LGBT and having to do even more work on his identity and how he relates to his parents or other people, especially when he's already somewhat isolated as Spider-Man.
How do they know each other? I would somehow love it if they met at college, but I am really open to anything, please.
How often do they talk? Hardison's job seems like it could occasionally get int he way of sustained contact.
How much about what Hardison does does Gus know? I feel like Gus wouldn't be super comofrtable being friends with a thief, even a computer thief, but a Robin Hood? Ic ould see that. Howeve if you want to prove me wrong go ahead!
Do they ever help each other out on cases/targets? Gus has lots of undercover experience xD and specific knowledge of certain things, and probably access to the kinds of places the Leverage crew may need to get to once in a while. Hardison obviously has access to all sorts of things, if Gus ever were to ask for assistance. I feel like he could aso score prime tickets to things Gus might want to go to, probably the most important skill for a computer-savvy friend to have xD
Group: Martha Jones (Doctor Who 2005) & Shuri (MCU): Oh wow, oh wow! Okay bias here because they're both just so smart and pretty, so right off the bat I'm sure I'll like anything created for this pair, but okay down to business.
I would love to see Martha find allies during the Year That Never Was either by passing by/through Wakanda herself, or sheltering there, or getting help while she's elsewhere in the world. Would Wakanda have been active outside of their borders? Or would they have hunkered down and protected themselves? Does Shuri or Martha have opinions about the politics?
I would love to see part of Shuri's exploration outside of Wakanda post-movie involve her meeting people from organizations watching the skies in oother countries. Maybe Martha is still with UNIT, or maybe she meets Shuri through some more secretive methods? Or perhaps they run smack into each other in the middle of a situation!
Really anything you come up with for these two would be amazing, they're both so smart and spirited and composed, I love them :))) The nomination is & but feel free to ship if you like!
Group: James "Rhodey" Rhodes (MCU) & Miles Morales (ItSv): Spider-Man was the only hero mentioned in the movie, but there are a variety of villains, so you have to assume there are other good guys, too. Maybe they just hang out in Manhattan.
But! I want Rhodey to show up in Brooklyn. Maybe the Avengers do a cursory meet-and-greet with every new smalltime hero, just to establish a relationship? Does Rhodey figure out how young Miles is? Or does the fake deep voice work on him? xD Does Rhodey try and follow Miles home or figure out who he is, or does a hero's respect for privacy win out? How far does that go if Rhodey thinks Miles might be in danger?
Or maybe Rhodey is in Brooklyn for a battle, and they have to work together? Or there's an all-hand-on-deck situation in Manhattan and Spider-Man has to come help out the Avengers. What do they look like in this verse? Go wild xD
Or maybe they meet in their civilian identites. Perhaps Rhodey comes to give a presentation to Miles' fancy new school, or there's a field trip to a science event.
Really I'm up for anything where these two get to interact! Very down for any comics inspiration you want to bring for Rhodey as well.
[Luke Cage (TV)]
I would love to see something set during their time in prison, or in an AU pocket of time afterwards where they were both out but still had to lay low together. Or maybe Comanche gets out before Shades starts seeing Mariah. Would Comanche have been more forward in his pursuit if Shades weren't already in a relationship/business partnership with a mob boss?
I'm also open to some sort of dual relationsip, whether that's Shades cheating on Mariah with Comanche or them having an agreement for him to have someone on the side. I would love to see an AU where being bi is normal and Comanche can openly play against Mariah- all of their scenes together were loaded and so much fun to watch. I think they're probably both too possessive to go for an equal split of Shades, but if you want to write something along those lines I'll eat it up with a spoon.
Group: Mariah Dillard/Shades: I really loved this pairing on the show. The dynamic of two 'bad guys' who seem to sincerely care for each other, but also might have conflicting goals, is very cool. I liked how Mariah was the boss, and Shades deferred to her on that level, but personally they were equals and did a lot of manipulating each other just because they could each see what the other was doing and respected them for it. It was something I've never seen before. If you write during the show, or go canon divergent, or embrace the S2 ending, I'll enjoy it regardless.
Tilda Johnson (Luke Cage TV): I loved Tilda so much that by the time I finishe season 2 I forgot that she hadn't been in season 1. I'll love reading anything about what you imagine her journey was like before she came back to Harlem, like her distant relationship with Mariah and her warmer relationship with her adoptive family, or how she came to be an herbalist. I'm requesting her individually because I'd love to read anything about her inner world or background or her future that you're interested in writing. I love her relationships with Bushmaster and her mother in the show- how would these affect her in the future? If Tilda had chilren some time in the future, what would she be like as a mother?
In the comics, Tilda is the villain Nightshade. Is that her future in this universe? Or might she go in a different direction? I'd also love to read crossovers with any character you're interested in, especially those who live in shades of gray themselves- the ones I think of immediately are Black Cat, Ava Starr, Black Widow, but really anyone. It doesn't have to be contained to Marvel, either, I just love Tilda and will enjoy reading about whoever you have her meet or know.
Group: Mariah Dillard & Tilda Johnson: Tilda's relationship with Mariah was so beautifully written on the show, loving but also wary and fraught and dangerous. The ending, my lord! How was Tilda feeling when she made that choice?? How did she plan it, why did she choose that method? How did it affect her afterwards, and how did she cope with it? Did it change her, or was she already changed? I'd also love to read an AU, where Mariah went to prison- or didn't! Or had a long, drawn-out prosecution. How does their relationship change? Does it grow sour? Does Tilda become more sympathetic to her mother as time goes on? Does she help her escape?
Group: Tilda Johnson & or / John McIver: I was surprised that these two had so much chemistry! I love that Tilda's willingness to listen to Bushmaster's
