General DNWs: My biggest squick to the point of phobia is pregnancy (male or female), and I'm majorly triggered by cruelty to animals.

As I said earlier, I really need a story with a happy ending. Some unhappy elements on the way are fine if the outcome is happy, but nothing extremely dark, please. Other things I don't like include deathfic, torture, abuse, vomit, A/B/O and character bashing, kidfic and embarrassment/humiliation.

Not exactly dislikes, but...
I have a bit of a problem with AUs in that the further away an AU gets from canon, the more difficulty I have 'seeing' the characters in my mind's eye. This is especially true if the setting of the AU necessitates tinkering with the characters' names.

I don't care for non-con, scat, watersports, blood, vomit, vore, lifestyle D/s, age-play and bestiality.

General Likes:
Ship or gen is fine, and in the case of some fandoms I would only like gen (I've mentioned it in the fandom-specific box for the relevant fandoms).

I really need happy endings. A little angst on the way there is fine, though.

I usually like characters to be friends (or at least frenemies!) on their way to a relationship. I like to see the progression of a friendship/relationship between newly-met characters who grow to like and trust each other over time, and eventually would do just about anything for each other, especially when their relationship is somewhat unexpected. How do characters in established relationships deal with daily life, how do they solve conflicts, how do they support and comfort each other when things don't go too well?

I'm particularly partial to humour in my fic. I like characters with a shared sense of humour, especially when used to express affection by people who aren't comfortable discussing 'feelings'. A story absolutely doesn’t have to be funny for me to like it, though: I like angst, arguments, and heartache in small doses, as long as there’s a happy ending.

I love epistolary fic – not necessarily just in the form of actual handwritten letters or diaries; in a modern or setting voicemail, emails, texts, blog posts, message board transcripts, Facebook or Twitter posts, PADDs, viewscreens etc will work, in any combination.

I enjoy both plot- and character-driven stories. Plots that show off character are perfect – the best of both worlds! I like stories that span an hour and stories that span years. Back story, missing scene fic, prequels, sequels, the same scene from different perspectives, fix-its, canon divergence will be loved. I love ‘five things’ type fics that show off significant moments in characters' lives. I love short fics, long fics, and anything else that takes your fancy.

I love crossovers (both sneaky and overt) and fusions where one set of characters are transplanted to another canonical universe. As long as I know the other canon or canons, I will be delighted. Feel free to use any interest in my profile that takes your fancy (or even more than one – the more the merrier); there are plenty to choose from!

I'll read any rating from G to NC-17. In general, I like romance, and first kisses, and virgins, and vanilla, and all that comes with that – visible nerves, awkwardness, neediness and emotions on high. I'm a sucker for first-time fics.

Kinkier stuff is more than ok, too. Favourite kinks include role play (not age play, though), dubcon (the sort where afterwards they think it was hot, even if consent was problematic at the time), dirty talk, poly, voyeurism, exhibitionism, cross-dressing, figging and erotic spanking. I can also go for mild BDSM (not lifestyle; easily slipping into and out of it is fun, particularly with a humourous slant), light bondage/restraints, public sex/sex where there is a risk of being caught, wax play and toys.

Fandom: Biggles Series – Captain WE Johns

Requested Media Types: fanfic, recs, meta
DNW Media Types: fanmix, podfic

Character/Pairing: Bertie Lissie

Bertie is my favourite character in this fandom, so I'd like to know more about him - his life before he
joined 666 Squadron, why it was that Biggles, Algy and Ginger accepted him into their inner circle, why he feels it necessary to play the 'silly ass' - what makes him tick in general.

My head-canon has him being a similar age to Biggles and Algy; if you like this idea, it would be
interesting to know what he got up to in WW1, and whether Biggles and Algy (or von Stalhein) were
aware of him.

Character/Pairing: James Bigglesworth
Character/Pairing: Algy Lacey
Character/Pairing: Ginger Hebblethwaite
Character/Pairing: Erich von Stalhein
Character/Pairing: Any pairing

For both characters and relationships, I'm interested in the dynamics between the characters involved.

Biggles is the unquestioned leader as far as outside ventures are concerned; I wonder whether this continues to be the case in private, or if he might (if only occasionally) let himself be taken in charge/cared for, and if so, whether he does so naturally or whether he needs to be coaxed into it (consensually).

As for the others:

Algy has been with Biggles the longest; he's Biggles' cousin and was posted to Biggles' squadron during WW1. Their relationship was pretty rocky at first, since Biggles resented Algy's mother asking him to look after Algy, and Algy had a bit of a case of hero-worship. However, they bonded pretty quickly, and Algy has been Biggles' second-in-command ever since. Would this carry on into their private life, or would Algy want to take charge for a change?

Von Stalhein has known Biggles and Algy for almost as long as they've known each other, but in an adversarial role (also with Bertie after he joined up with Biggles and Co). Even though there's a truce after they rescue him from Sakhalin, the relationship is uneasy. It would be interesting to see how any relationship featuring him would come about.

Ginger arrived on the scene between WW1 and WW2. He was underage at the time, and was Biggles' ward until he came of age. Sometimes I think he feels that Biggles and Algy treat him as if he's still a child, which he finds frustrating. It seems like one of the things that might draw him to Bertie is that Bertie has only known him as an adult, so treats him that way.

Bertie only joined the gang in WW2, but I think the confidence and acceptance of self that I see in him would mean he would find no difficulty in joining in with more intimate things. I think he could well switch roles as necessary in a relationship.

Any other characters from the books eg Air Commodore Raymond, Wilks and other members of 266 and 666 Squadrons are welcome as minor characters. They could make interesting POV characters.

Fandom: Chanur Series – CJ Cherryh

Requested Media Types: fanfic, recs, meta
DNW Media Types: fanmix, podfic

Character/Pairing: Any character

I love the way that CJ Cherryh came up species who have their own distinct worldview and way of thinking. The books are written from the hani point of view. It would be fascinating to read about events in the books from the point of view of one of the other alien species, or from Tully's point of view – how he copes with the new places he's been thrust into and people he has to deal with.

Character/Pairing: Philip Glenister/Ant Anstead
Character/Pairing: Philip Glenister
Character/Pairing: Ant Anstead

I got into this as a result of reading my recipient's Yuletide letter and thinking it sounded intriguing. So I decided to watch the first episode on YouTube.... several hours later.... :) To see these two is to love them, while simultaneously busting a gut laughing. Thank you, lamardeuse!

It's a reality programme presented by Philip Glenister of 'Life On Mars' fame, and Ant Anstead, who as the blurb on the programme says is 'an internationally renowned car designer' and very easy on the eyes!

To quote from Wikipedia:
"Each show begins with a quick discussion of the car that is to be featured in that episode. Some of the history, and why it is important to British motoring is covered. This is followed by Anstead attempting to locate one of these cars, typically through a barn find, to restore.

As the car is restored by Ant and his team at his car restoration company in Hertfordshire (Evanta Motor Co, although this is never mentioned in the show), Phil looks into the social side of the vehicles, meeting owners' clubs and attending events to get a feel for how the restoration should progress. Phil takes the lead in guiding Ant as to how he would like the restored project to look, but often has his mind changed through discussions with enthusiasts at events.

After the car is restored, Phil and Ant take it for a test drive before they are joined by several similar cars owned by car club members who give their opinions on the restored work. The car is then put on auction at the prestigious Coys of Kensington."

Ant and Phil are hilarious together, and pretty much slash themselves.

From lamardeuse's tumblr:

Sample ep:

And an interview with the two of them that has some very slashy moments:
(tried to embed these but can't get it to work. Trust me, they're worth the click!)

Since this is still a new fandom for me, anything you want to tell me about these two will be adored – on-screen, behind the scenes or outside work, getting together, first time or established relationship.

Or perhaps, what happened immediately after the camera switched off in the scene that starts at 1:30 in this video? (idek WHY that happened, because it came out of nowhere that I could see in the episode - this bit is the end of the sample episode!)

Fandom: Hogan's Heroes

Character/Pairing: Any character(s), Any pairing/moresome

More about life in Stalag 13, either with Hogan and his men conducting another mission or just their routine daily life (as much as anything can be routine with this shower :D )

For ships, how do their positions in the chain of command affect their relationships (eg Newkirk and LeBeau are equals, Hogan and Newkirk or Kinchloe have the commanding officer/subordinate dynamic to deal with, and Hogan and Klink are (supposed to be) enemies)?

And as for Klink and Schultz, what do they have to say to each other when none of the prisoners are around? Do they like each other? Do they talk to each other about camp business only, or about personal things? Could they trust each other enough to be honest about potentially dangerous topics (the war, the gestapo etc)?

I'd rather like Colonel Klink and/or Sergeant Schultz to be aware of what Hogan and his men are up to, either with or without Hogan realizing this.

DNW Media Types: fanmix, podfic

Character/Pairing: James May/Sim Oakley
Character/Pairing: James May
Character/Pairing: Sim Oakley
Character/Pairing: Rory Barker aka Rory the Intern
Character/Pairing: Oz Clarke

What I like about this show is that it gives James the chance to explore more of his obviously wide range of interests in his own inimitable style, and I'm very fond of the people he's gathered around him to do it, particularly Sim.

I love how, despite his obvious enthusiasm for James' projects, Simmy is so laid-back – whatever weird idea James comes up with he just smiles and gets on with it. If you want to write shipfic, I'd love to see the two of them getting together, and/or making their relationship work in the context of making the show together.

Poor Rory the Intern is always being dragged into trouble, but the way he reacts to it always makes me laugh too much to be sorry for him – though it might be nice to see him come out on top for once.

I'm always amused by James and Oz' friendship of two pedants and the way James drags him into his side projects at every opportunity. I don't really ship them, though.

I don't ship Rory with anyone either... though come to think of it, shipping him and Oz could make for an entertaining crackship!

A crossover involving the other two Classic Top Gear presenters would be wonderful, if you feel so inclined; given the kind of chaos that tends to occur when Jeremy, James and Richard get together, I'd love to see its effects on the show, and how the others involved (particularly Simmy) try to deal with it.

And if you're familiar with Ross the Intern from the Jay Leno Show, a meeting/conversation between him and Rory would probably be hilarious!

Any other people who've appeared on the show are welcome to join in, Particularly the sergeant-major type from the Christmas show.

Fandom: Life On Mars

Character/Pairing: Sam Tyler
Character/Pairing: Gene Hunt
Character/Pairing: Ray Carling
Character/Pairing: Chris Skelton
Character/Pairing: Annie Cartwright
Character/Pairing: Harry Woolf
Character/Pairing: Frank Morgan
Character/Pairing: Vic Tyler

This is a new-to-me fandom, so basically I want everything! :D

Sam and Gene are my OTP here (and it's unusual for me to have an OTP in a fandom rather than going for lots of different pairings), so though I'm fine with them being just friends (or frenemies), please don't pair them with anyone else.

I'll enjoy anything that looks into facets of their characters, what makes them tick, how they see themselves in relation to each other and the people around them. What does Gene really make of Sam's 'weirdnesses'?

In their partnership, Sam comes over mostly as the 'head' and Gene the 'heart' of the relationship. As the show progresses they begin to see advantages in each other's style and finding the best of both worlds between the two methods of policing. I'd like to see more about the way this comes about, in the context of either a growing relationship or friendship.

DCI/Doctor Morgan intrigues me, since there is no indication that Sam was acquainted with Doctor Morgan in his original time before meeting DCI Morgan in 1973. How/why do these men have the same face? Could it be the same man in both timelines, and if so what is his objective in wanting to take Gene down in 1973?

At the end of the show, Sam has decided to stay in 1973 and give his loyalty to Gene. How does Morgan take this? Or does Sam say nothing to him, but become a 'double agent' to watch Gene's back?

What makes Vic Tyler tick? Is he really a devoted family man doing his best for his wife and son (in which case, why would he think becoming a crime boss was the best way to do it? How did he get to where he was?) or is he using them as a front? How does Sam cope in the aftermath of finding out that his father was... not a nice person?

(I haven't seen Ashes To Ashes yet.)

Fandom: Masterchef (US) RPF

Character/Pairing: Gordon Ramsay/Stephen Lee (MasterChef US)

Character/Pairing: Gordon Ramsay/Tommy Walton
Character/Pairing: Stephen Lee (MasterChef US)/Derrick Peltz/Tommy Walton
Character/Pairing: Tommy Walton/Graham Elliot
Character/Pairing: Stephen Lee (MasterChef US)/Derrick Peltz

I definitely shipped all of these relationships while I was watching this season of the show.

For Derrick and Stephen, I think it would be an enemies to frenemies to (maybe reluctant) lovers, and I'd adore seeing that progression.

With Stephen and Gordon, I could see it being love at first sight, expressed in a very aggressive manner :D (if you don't see things that way, I'd be fascinated to read your take on it).

For Gordon and Tommy, there was an almost-flirtation going on occasionally, with a sort of 'fuck me, what am I doing?' vibe from Gordon – I'd love to see that explored further.

I'm sure Tommy would be ready and willing to dispense useful (or not so useful) advice on getting together to any or all of Gordon, Stephen or Derrick, whether or not he was asked, perhaps even offer practical demonstrations which might lead to his involvement in the shenanigans.

I'm not sure that Graham would need any advice – he and Tommy seem to me to be birds of a feather, though Graham is less flamboyant than Tommy.

Please feel free to include Christina and/or any other contestants that you want to.

This is another fairly new-to-me fandom where I'm open to any story you want to tell.

Character/Pairing: Mike Nesmith/Peter Tork

I love the TV show Monkees! (I love them irl too, but the TV show characters are the ones that I'm interested in for fic and other purposes.) Make it a romp, have them taking on villains, whether knowingly or by accident, supporting each other with any problems they might have, hanging out together at the beach house, taking a drive in the Monkeemobile, playing a gig, generally just being friends and having fun. As far as ships are concerned, any pairing would be wonderful, but the four of them together is the relationship of my heart - just give me a big cuddly puppy pile of love! If you do go for a pairing, it would be nice if the other two were around and being supportive (or even paired up themselves).
Also, if you could write Peter as something along the lines of shy, really absent-minded and/or hopelessly innocent/naive rather than as thick as two short planks, I will love you forever!

Character/Pairing: Brett Sinclair/Danny Wilde

I love this show for the humour, and also the friendship between two characters who have come from such different backgrounds yet ended up with the same lifestyle. I'd love a character study-type fic which compares and contrasts their similarities and differences. I'd love a story about their friendship - though they often behave as if they're rivals, it's obvious they mean a lot to each other. I'd love a fic where one is in peril and the other has to come to his rescue, or maybe they rescue each other - a situation where they actually have to admit how much they care for each other.

I ship the two of them like crazy, so any of the plot ideas above told in a relationship setting, or how the two of them got into the relationship in the first place would be wonderful.

Whatever story you tell, I'd love a humourous take on it.

Fandom: Siegfried & Roy RPF

Requested Media Types: fanfic, wallpaper, fanvid, recs
DNW Media Types: fanmix, podfic

Character/Pairing: Siegfried Fischbacher/Roy Horn

I was lucky enough to see Siegfried & Roy's show in Las Vegas a couple of times in the 90s - I'd gone there to see the Moody Blues at Caesar's, and a gay friend told me that if I loved the Moodies I'd love S&R – and he was so right! The animals and the illusions were amazing, the staging and costumes were gorgeous, and the rapport between the two of them warmed the cockles of my shippy little heart.

From what I found out from googling the hell out of them when I got back from Vegas, their relationship was one of those 'secrets that everybody knows except the people who don't want to'. A few people said they'd split up and just had a business partnership, but I hoped that either it wasn't true or they'd get back together. I'd always meant to go back to Vegas to see them a 3rd time (and more), but then Roy had his accident :'-( I heard bits and pieces about them from time to time, and rewatched the DVDs I have of them and reread their autobiography (which is itself a masterpiece of misdirection). But then a little while ago I found and bought the magazine which had this 10-years-later interview (thank you ebay!) and it kicked my shippiness for them back into high gear:

I was particularly taken with these comments from the interview:

Asked if the duo is like a couple married for decades, Siegfried swiftly agrees. “Ya,” he says. “It is 55 years for us. It was not always like this for us. We have had our ups and downs, but when I am home, it’s Roy’s home, too.”
“We are still a team,” Roy says, as if completing the thought.

How is the fable of Siegfried and Roy anything but a love story?
“It is that, yes,” Siegfried says. “I never realized I was good until I met Roy. I always just tried to be good, but I never really knew I was good until we became a team. The way I grew up, I really had no confidence in what I was doing.”

“I was once asked if I was happy, with all of the success we have had, and I said, ‘I am happy when I am onstage,’” Siegfried says. Then he stops walking. “Yes. Okay. But that is only three hours of a day, when we were onstage. The day has 24 hours. Now, I have to work and am working still to be 24 hours happy. It has worked, because I am with Roy. You know, even when we signed a contract, it was always ‘Siegfried & Roy,’ like a marriage.”

All of this started my hankering after fanfic for them. Possible ideas:
A story where they look back on the ups and downs they have had from where they are in the interview, at peace with their lives and each other and looking forward with hope for the future
A fix it fic where the accident didn't happen, or Roy recovered completely
Magical realism AU – they really are magicians/animal whisperers – either in a magical setting, or in real world (do they need to hide their abilities? How do they hide?) Please no werewolf AUs,
Soul-bonding would be interesting
Or any combination of these
Or any other fic you care to write – just let it end with them happily together :)

I loved the tongue-in-cheek/over-the-top atmosphere of this canon.

I'm pretty much open to anything you care to write. Backstory for any of the characters, their relationships, what makes Zelda and her cohorts tick - maybe a retelling of one of the episodes from Zelda's point of view. As a fan of 'It Ain't Half Hot, Mum' I was particularly taken by Windsor Davies' voiceover for Sergeant Major Zero, so a fic focusing on him or all of the Zeroids would be loved.

Character/Pairing: Any relationship

I adore fiction about these guys in any combination, though Jeremy/James/Richard is the OT3 of my heart. I'd love lots of banter, trading of insults, arguments, road trips, crazy challenges, shenanigans and things generally 'not going well'.

How the 'outside' characters get involved/fit into relationships with 2 or 3 of the TG guys would be fascinating.

If you're going to use the Stig, I really like the Stig-as-an-alien trope.

Guest characters (not part of relationships) welcome.

I'd also love meta or a fanvid for these guys (in view of their part in Top Gear coming to an end ::sob:: I'd really like to see a fanvid using Green Day's 'Good Riddance [Time Of Your Life']) to celebrate their time on it.

The fact that I'm even requesting this comes as a total surprise to me! I watched the first episode of the rebooted show out of curiosity and (being a big fan of the Clarkson/Hammond/May Classic Top Gear) determined to hate it, but to my surprise I found Matt LeBlanc really funny and I loved Rory and Chris H. So I've carried on watching, and now I'm addicted and love all the new presenters (apart from Chris Evans, who I think is an annoying twat). I'm also getting a bit shippy about the potential relationships I've listed above.

I can't really give any prompts, because all of this is so new and surprising that I don't really know what I want :)

I know very little about Chris H, Rory and Eddie, and I don't know that much about Sabine, so any info about them (links, etc) would be welcome. Fic would be great (but please have Chris E be a fairly minor character), as would wallpapers – anything! ::begging::

From: [personal profile] fanfic_nonnie
Pussy Willow was a bit of an adventurous kitten, in that she was always exploring and getting into places she probably shouldn't.

The Colonel never minded the barn cats or their kittens that came along, and he could hardly help encountering them from time to time on the farm. They generally ignored him.

Then he found Pussy Willow hard fast after a fish and about to tumble headlong in the stream. He caught her as neatly with his mouth as if he'd been her mother, and she meowed a complaint at the fish that got away.

"Nearly took a spill there." He dropped the bedraggled kitten gently on the ground.

She sniffed and sent a longing look down the stream at her lost dinner.

"Oh, come on," the sheepdog told her. "I'll get you something to eat. Though your dinner's in an hour."

"A cat should be able to hunt her own meal," Pussy Willow replied primly but followed with her curious nose lifted in the air as he led her to his own dinner, put out earlier in keeping with his schedule.

"Eat up," he offered amiably.

She ate delicately, cleaned herself, then curled up beside him and purred.
