Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Requested Media Types: Fic, fanart
DNW Media Types: Anything else

Character/Pairing: Clint/Natasha/Loki
Prompts: Please only canon divergent AUs where Thor:TDW and AOU don’t happen. Pre- or post-Thor AUs are great; I love “Loki falls to Earth instead of to Thanos” fic.

I very much dislike the idiot!Thor, abusive!Odin, and not-Loki’s-fault characterizations. I don’t want unredeemed or pure villain Loki (on the path toward redemption is fine) and am wary about-- but not opposed to-- post-Avengers fic due to the mind control issue.

This is my OT3 in the fandom and it’s really hard to say what I love about this triad because all of them have parallels and differences with the others and how they could all work together is fascinating. Second chances and redemption and snark and intelligence. (One of my favorite things is how Natasha and Clint trust and support each other and I’d love to see Loki brought into that dynamic.)

Fics: they get into an argument and someone needs to make the first move in reconciling, or maybe Loki has a bad day and they end up cuddling, or they’re on a mission together. Loki whump welcome. Cultural differences and expectations and weird uncertainties are things I’d love to see explored.

Art-wise, I’d love to see them hanging out on a couch or cuddling or out somewhere together. Maybe they’re on Asgard or in the Tower or the new training facility or on a dinner date or something? As long as it’s SFW, I’ll be happy with anything.

Fandom: The Silmarillion

Requested Media Types: Fic, fanart
DNW Media Types: Everything else

In general, I’m neutral to mildly positive about the Valar, so please don’t write them as terrible/worse than Morgoth/etc. I think LACE is inherently unreliable. Also, if it is at all relevant to your fanwork, please use the version of Amrod’s and Amras’ deaths found in The Silmarillion. I largely ship canon relationships.

What I love about Middle-earth… the sheer scope of the world and the sense that its history actually matters and informs the present. That even though the good guys won, the world can’t go back to how it was. That people are changed by their experiences. That friendships, family, loyalty, and trust matter. Fighting despite the odds. Hope overcoming despair.

Character/Pairing: Maglor
Prompts: I love Maglor to pieces and I’m an inveterate Maglor/canonical wife shipper. If you don’t want to work with her, I also love gen. (In fact, almost all of the prompts are gen.)

If you want to write something lighter: it truly is hard to go wrong with post-canon wandering fic (from just after canon ends all the way to Maglor in history and present day), as long as the focus isn’t on “immortals live on while mortals die” stuff. Avari, meeting characters from later Ages (please not Sauron), OCs: it’s all good. Or for canon-era stuff, a day in the life of Maglor and his wife or something with Elrond and Elros.

If you’re in the mood to write dark fic: Maglor is somehow discovered to not be a run-of-the-mill human by unscrupulous people and ends up in a lab as an involuntary experimental subject. (I’m firmly in the “Elves are humans with certain differences” camp; them as a different species irks me.) Be as graphic as you’d like, but I do need a happy ending.

Art: pretty much identical to my lighter fic tastes, so I’m not sure how to prompt for artwork without simply repeating what I said there. Please have the art be work-safe. Please no giant or floppy Elf ears.

Fandom: Lord of the Rings (book only, please)

Requested Media Types: Fic
DNW Media Types: Everything else

Character/Pairing: Elrond/Celebrían
Prompts: Life in Aman, whether it’s relearning how to live together or meeting relatives or something else entirely. I love the variety of interpretations of what Fourth Age Aman is like, so I don’t really have anything specific in mind. (I do believe that Elladan and Elrohir will eventually sail, but you don’t need to write anything that involves them.)

Fandom: Original-- Books

Requested Media Types: Print books
DNW Media Types: ebooks, self-published books, audiobooks

I’m going to check any recommendations out of the library, so I’m not sure how likely it is I’ll find small press books. But I’m not saying no to them.

Character: Mysteries
Prompts: I loved the Nancy Drew books as a kid but I never got into the genre as an adult. So rec me your favorites. I’m not interested in police procedurals, legal, medical, forensic, or anything with death of pets. I’d prefer women protagonists written by women authors, books involving dogs, or scifi/fantasy/paranormal/speculative fiction elements or settings.

Character: Medical history nonfiction
Prompts: Preferably about things before antibiotics were discovered and pre-1900s is even better. I’m both curious and write fanfic in settings where modern technology doesn’t exist.

Character: Science nonfiction
Prompts: Anything from history to current events. I’m interested in pretty much everything (seriously; my usual stack of library material features books ranging from biology to physics to geology), though I don’t want “the world is dying/these diseases will kill us all” and things of that ilk.

Character: History nonfiction
Prompts: Any era, any place. I would love to know more about African history and the daily lives of people of all classes in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales from prehistory until the end of the Renaissance.

You mention liking Nancy Drew as a child. Might I recommend trying Trixie Belden? It has a similar feel to Nancy Drew. It's also a girl detective series that ran from 1948 to 1986. They did reprints of the books about ten years ago. I found Trixie to be very relatable. The first six books were written by a woman but after that it is in-house writers from Western Publishing under a pseudonym.
