Hello Flyers fan!
So excited to see all the great works that will come out of such a vibrant fandom! I've come up with some prompts for the ships I'm requesting and have listed some things I like in general, but mainly what I want is for you to have fun writing! Use this letter as a springboard and go where the muse takes you :)
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.
Opt-ins: Background relationships, infidelity, first or second person POVs, A/B/O that isn't just a sex scene, identity headcanons (especially asexuality and polyamory), issue!fic.
Characters going to the gym or exercising (or talking about or referencing such)
Characters buying, creating, or exchanging gifts
Characters cooking or planning meals, characters smoking or drinking
Someone taking care of their partner after a long day, a battle, or another physically or mentally stressful event: getting their favorite food, a massage, renewing ice packs, changing bandages, putting on music or scents they like
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, anything :)
A broad DNW on anything related to suicide, from a character contemplating suicide or having ideation, to jokes like 'I'd rather die than...'
Chronic conditions or illnesses.
Significant inclusion of characters over 60. In contexts/universes with beyond-human-lifespan characters, please use your best judgement.
Themes of mourning for a dead person.
Firefights, guns beyond what is baseline necessary for realism in the canon.
Head or eye trauma, with the exception of concussions.
Use of the word 'broken' when referring to people (i.e. 'broken by his experiences,' 'just as broken as me').
Anthropomorphizing adjectives for genitalia (i.e. 'proud cock,' 'needy hole')
Use of the spelling 'cum.' It is fine to use 'come.'
Apocalypses or dystopias.
Mafia or mob AUs.
Ships are not listed in any particular order.
I'm very cool with any kneeling or D/s style fic for this ship, or, as always, goalie nesting. Maybe goalies don't really nest til they get to the NHL because of ~reasons, and Elliott has to show Hart how to get through it, or how to command the skaters to do what needs to be done.
Any sort of jealousy from either of them, and how that's dealt with, would also be really cool. If you're interested in exploring some new writing style, I'd love to see it for this ship!
Marc-Andre Fleury/Claude Giroux: I just love the energy and personality both of these guys have, so pretty much anything for them will make me happy. Any Metro rivalry stuff would be awesome, especially secret friendship or relationship when things were still particularly contentious between the teams. If it's something you're comfortable writing, I'd love to see some French Canadian bonding, or perhaps that shared culture (or not? smaller cultural areas sometimes have deeper cultural rifts, and idk how French Canada works) would just increase any Friendly Disagreements that might be going on. For these two I'd like to see them being sweet to each other at some point, if you can fit it in, I just think they deserve it :) I also have a hankering for some sort of trade fic- maybe Vegas offloads Fleury's contract by trading him to a contending team that wants that strong veteran presence to back up Carter Hart. And of course, I'd never say no to a goalie nesting fic!
