 Dear Holly Poly Writer,
I'm sure I'll like whatever you write for me, so just have fun!  I know this letter got a little long, and there are some canons that have more prompts than others, but that just means I had a lot of ideas for those.  If I requested a ship or canon, I would be happy to see just about anything for them!

Don't feel like you need to use all of my characters for any particular canon; in most cases, my optional prompts are for one character or a subset of characters.
I'm saiditallbefore on AO3.

Things I like:
• Competency (being really good at Their Thing)
• Outsider POV
• Hurt/Comfort
• Friends-to-Lovers 
• Enemies-to-Lovers 
• Families of Choice
• Angst with a happy ending
• Pretend dating or secretly dating
• Casefic
• Porn with plot
• Happy or happy-for-now endings
• Non-mundane AUs (ex: Regency, dragon riders, fantasy, 
state-mandated ghost hunters)
• Heists (ex: Leverage, Ocean’s 11)

Smut Likes:
• Bondage
• Phone sex
• Dom/sub
• Cunnilingus
• Pain mixed with pleasure (intentional or unintentional)
• Orgasm denial
• Hate sex
• Object insertion (vaginal only)

See below for more specific prompts!

• Mundane AUs (ex: high school, coffeeshop, bakery)
• Character death
• Unprompted crossovers or fusions
• Levels of violence that are graphic or extreme beyond canon
• Unrequested non-con (dub-con or non-con in requested scenarios is A-OK)
• Brainwashing/mental horror
• Unrequested pairings
• Breathplay
• Blowjobs
• Anal sex
• Homophobia

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Rebecca Bunch/Heather Davis/Valencia Perez

Ever After High
Darling Charming/Raven Queen/Apple White

I love fairy tale retellings, and I love how this show plays with the idea of destiny.  It's not super nuanced, given that it's an internet-only show for kids, but I love anything that deals with the idea of changing your own destiny.  Plus!  The characters are all super adorable, and very shippable.

The Good Place
Tahani Al-Jamil/Chidi Anagonye/Jianyu Li | Jason Mendoza/Eleanor Shellstrop


I love all the supporting characters in this show, so please include them!  I just really want the fic to also be Eleanor-centric.  Kirsten Bell is <3 and Eleanor manages to straddle the line between selfish and lovable just perfectly-- even when she has to relearn all her character development!

This show is the best show on television right now.  I love the crazy twists, how meta it got with the beginning of the second season, the Groundhog Day stuff happening, the jokes and philosophical pondering mixing.  I know how hard it can be to write for an ongoing canon and that anything here could be jossed at any point before reveals, but please don’t sweat it!  If you want to play with any of the versions of canon we get (canon AUs! maybe there was one where they were all soulmates?), then go for it!  If you want to go full-out crazy, go for it!  (Actually, full-out crazy is probably best for this canon?)

As far as specific prompts? I would love views of the different “resets”-- how do they figure it out?  How do they find each other? 

H2O: Just Add Water
Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick
Cleo Sertori/Rikki Chadwick/Bella Hartley
Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Rikki Chadwick/Bella Hartley
Cleo Sertori/Emma Gilbert/Charlotte Watsford

This is one of my favorite tiny fandoms and I will be delighted with literally anything.  Weird science?  Mermaid magic?  Teen drama?  Lay it all on me!

Harry Potter
Hermione Granger/Neville Longbottom/Luna Lovegood/Harry Potter/Ginny Weasley/Ron Weasley

Harry Potter is one of my forever fandoms, and I am here for whatever nonsense you want to throw at me.  But please, no bashing.

I have no excuses.  I just really want these six together in some kind of weird relationship.  (Incest between Ron & Ginny is okay, as long as it only begins after the relationship with the others begins.)  Maybe they did a sex magic ritual to win the war and then ~feelings happened?  Maybe they've all just bonded from the trauma and no one else can really understand them properly?

Fic or Treat!

I need to dig out my to-do list...

I picked up a few things from the sale shelves at the library yesterday, including a two-disc soundtrack for Fantasia, which was the 50th anniversary digital remaster from 1990. I don't want to know how much someone paid for it originally, but for fifty cents, I consider it an epic score! (er, literally!)

Voltron S4 sure was a thing-- the sort of thing I'll be picking bits out of for a while, likely. It definitely sold me a few shares in Matt/Pidge, deargods.

Since Dragonball S2 arrived, we've been watching that-- with everything else going on, it's nice to be able to sit back and laugh at a guy with nyoi bo stuck in his arse. ^^;;

Oh, and also a 'horror' movie called Teeth, about vagina dentata. I actually rather liked it. Boycritter finds it the scariest movie ever, as apparently he'd never run into the concept of vagina dentata before?

Me: This isn't as much a horror movie as it is a metaphor for growing up with a wish for more control over your body and environment.

Other than it being Sen & Nadleeh's 8th anniversary, in real time, (Happy Anniversary, you two. I knew you'd be fine~) today has been so astoundingly unimpressive and underwhelming that I think I'm just going to go over there-- *vague pointing* --and do anything other than continue today-ing.

Inside the house...

[personal profile] kalloway: *facepalming*
[personal profile] kalloway: The problem is not actually AO3 this time, though?
[personal profile] taichara: hm?
[personal profile] kalloway: They've finally canonized Elijah (Patron Saint of Pretty Scars) as Elijah Kiel, which is actually my preferred version. I've been using Keel because that's the version in Frame, but... in the back of the Re:Master of Astray 3, it's Kiel again. And Loretta and Kazahana are back to Aja.
[personal profile] taichara: thank fuck, because the others are terrible imo.
[personal profile] kalloway: Aw, I like them as Azure. It's actually a word?
[personal profile] taichara: if it's the sacrifice that needs to be made to not have Elijah be a ship part ~
[personal profile] taichara: *ducks*
[personal profile] kalloway: He's half of a lot of my ships?
[personal profile] taichara: *snrrrrrk*
[personal profile] taichara: spose it's apt, the keel's the bottom ;3

Still AO3'ing, since I feel sort of like death but am also out of sleep.

I've pulled everything I could find out of the Anonymous collection... sent in a Support ticket for an interesting bug I discovered, and am still wandering along~ I had last year's Yuletide fics in the Anonymous collection because Reasons, and then my Chocolate Box fics...

(I think the safe thing to say about that is that I just wasn't comfortable with myself for awhile - it had nothing to do with my recips.)

Next, on the oldest-to-newest cleanup is Breathing Underwater, a Gundam SEED fic from Poly Big Bang! Because it ended up being a lot longer than anticipated, I got rushed at the end so I figured for posting it on AO3, I could do another editing pass and expand a bit. I apparently stalled out at 5/7 chapters and there it's sat since, basically, when I went back to school. (Yes, I suspect these things are related. I sort of joked that I paused my life to go back to school, but it was true in a lot of ways. There are a lot of things, in general, that I had been working on, intended to do, etc. that just got dropped for the three-and-a-half-year duration. And it's okay, because I came out of it in a much better situation overall, but y'know.)

Anyway, Breathing Underwater! I still really like the fic, but it does need one more tiny editing pass and some expansion on the last two 'chapters' to even make them chapters. Sure, it's hitting on 'I see you are editing your edits, again!' but the few things I saw when reading through were definitely some stumbles. ^^;;

I guess I should also wander through the "!archive me" tag on here and see what I have lingering...

Request 1 by hhertzof
We Bare Bears (TV)

I love all the bears equally so I'd really like ensemble slice-of-life stories. Alternately feel free to pick a random AU or have them meet some famous bears of history/literature/etc.

I love the bears best when they're playing off each other (and Chloe the awesome). I don't know what else to say but moar #bearstack please.

Request 2 by hhertzof
Milo Murphy's Law
Milo Murphy

I'm happy with just about anything here as long as Milo's in the center of things being his usual calm self. Time travel hijinks? Bring on Cavendish and Dakota. Pre-show backstory with either Sara or Melissa? Go for it. Zack's past coming back to haunt him again? Why not? Or maybe a school story or just a wild adventure, or a glimpse of that Phineas & Ferb crossover they keep teasing us with.

Request 3 by hhertzof
Wynd Family Series - Stephen Krensky

I'd love to see the Wynds meet another magical family. Crossovers welcome or just expand on the magic in their world.

Alison, Edward, Jamie, Jennifer and Perry are the kids in a family with hereditary magical powers. The books are light magical adventures/mysteries in which the kids have to band together to save the day. I just love the entire family so I'd love to see either an ensemble adventure or focus on any member or members of the family.

The series is out-of-print but cheap used copies are available and all three books are available on Amazon Kindle.

Request 4 by hhertzof
My Two Dads
Nicole Bradford, Michael Taylor, Joey Harris

Yes, I ship it. Michael/Joey, I mean. I'd love to see either Nicole playing matchmaker or maybe having a bet with the Judge about how long it would take them to figure it out. Or any other plot in tone with the series.

On the off chance that you don't ship it, I'd be perfectly happy with a sitcom-esque plot with Nicole at the center. I'd appreciate it if you avoided some of the 80s gender stereotyping (especially relationship-wise) of the original, and keep it in tone with the original intended audience, but otherwise go wild.

Request 5 by hhertzof
Kitty Telefair Series - Florence Stevenson
Kitty Telefair

A long out-of-print "gothic" series - 1970s urban fantasy before it was called that. Kitty is a member of a family of occultists, and does occasional stints on a television talk show. Mostly though, she deals with occult menaces of various sorts.

This is my long-shot fandom but I'd be happy with another case set in the 70s, what happened to her after the series, or maybe a time travel adventure to the present.
