sesquipedaliatic: Crazy.  We has it. (Default)
Dear Yuletide Author:

You rock my world! Seriously, I'm jazzed to receive whatever you end up writing for me. In the interest of sparking some ideas, let me tell you about my likes. Of which there are many.

My AO3 is SomebodyOwens, where you can see the couple of fics I've actually posted and more usefully, the bookmarks I've collected. Bookmarks are probably the fastest way to get a general idea of my likes, and my recs on pinboard include more detail.

I'm definitely a fan of the porny fic, so that filthy sex you've been looking for an excuse to write is very welcome. That said, not comfortable writing porn? NO WORRIES. I'm so in love with each and every one of these dorks that whatever glimpse of their fictional lives you give me will be GREAT.

Squicks are fairly minimal, though deathfic and sad or ambiguous ending fics are at the top of the Nope list; happy endings are a must. Infidelity as a plot point is also a squick (Carey feeling guilty for cheating on Angela with PK is a NOPE, slight AU where Angela isn't in the picture or is as a good friend is fantastic for me. Open relationships are also great.) I'm not a huge fan of A/B/O and mpreg fic. And since they're increasing in popularity, apocalypse fic and zombie AUs are super duper not for me.

My loves are many and varied, but tropes and id-fic are my absolute favorites. A few prompty ideas for any arrangement of characters, to get you thinking:

- Secret revealed fic! Whether that revelation happens intentionally or not (coming out to the team vs getting found out), I love the build and release of tension that comes with that narrative. The secret could be sexuality, or attraction to a character, or something totally different like person A having magic powers and being forced to tell Person B.
- Soulmates, from names on skin to telepathy. Show me angst over potentially being outed, the fear of unrequited love, or unexpectedly recognizing a mark on a teammate's body.
- Praise kink! Captains making sure their players don't take losses too hard, players making sure their captains/goalie/teammates know just how good they are, one person telling another how good they are in bed. Whether it's about comfort or sex (or both!), praise is delicious.
- Magic AU or HDM/daemons AU. I adore "everything is the same except magic is real/we have daemons" AUs, and the compilations (curses! Newly developing powers! Touching daemons!) that arise.
- Games that lead to shenanigans. Truth or dare. Spin the bottle. Strip poker. Give me hijinks and laughter and pining, and a perfect get together excuse.
- Threesomes or moresomes! As a solution to a love triangle, an established couple welcoming a (perhaps nervous) third, or a friendly team orgy. Everybody's happy!
- First time, in all incarnations. First time having sex, first time having gay sex, first time trying something kinky. I love nervousness and/or embarrassment by the newbie, and an eventual good time by all involved.
- Locked in togther, especially as a get-together device. Whether that's stuck in an elevator or snowed in on a winter vacation, two people trying to hide mutual attraction while sharing a small space is delicious.
- Pining. Pining in all its forms, so long as that unresolved tension gets resolved by the end. If you'd consider tagging a fic as angst with a happy ending, or fluff and angst, chances are high I'll love it.
- H/C, since hockey provides an unfortunate number of opportunities for that. Again, platonic or not, give me one character A helping Character B deal with a concussion or a migraine or whatever other injury seems appropriate.

Pittsburgh Penguins RPF (Marc-Andre Fleury, Phil Kessel, Carl Hagelin)
This request is an either/or for the characters. Have a Phil/Hags fic that you've been tossing around? Excellent. Want to write about Flower and his rookie? Also excellent. I'm here for the porniest porn and platonic cuddles, and everything in between.

The Pens are the reason I started watching hockey, so pretty much any incarnation of these goofballs will make me happy. Summer adventures, locker room shenanigans, post game h/c, magical AUs, team sex romp, bros being bros, OT3, found family or basically anything else.

If you're looking for more specific ideas, consider: Flower wrestling with his concussion and watching Matt shine, Phil and Carl who didn't realize they were dating, the Pens decide to show Flower that they love him, or Carl and/or Phil finding that they really do have a home in Pittsburgh.

Montreal Canadians RPF (Carey Price, PK Subban)
Oh Habs. I fell in love with this team entirely due to Carey Price, and then stayed for PK Subban. Since the PK & Habs franchise relationship is... troubling, I'd love a fic that doesn't focus on his trade. Other than that, I'll love fic set in previous years, All Star Game shenanigans, summer fun, a focus on Team Canada, friends-to-lovers or didn't know they were dating, or pretty much anything else that you're excited about. I'm here for the porniest porn and platonic cuddles, and everything in between.

If you're as enamored with AUs as I am, consider telling me about PK the bar owner and Carey the cowboy who drops by on his weekly trips into town, or Carey the star goalie and PK the stylist who teases Carey into some sharp suits.

Washington Capitals RPF (Braden Holtby, Nicklas Backstrom)
This request is an either/or for these characters. Both in one fic is great, but I'm perfectly happy with just one. I'm here for the porniest porn and platonic cuddles, and everything in between.

Goalie love! Holts is a sharply dressed delight, and I'd love to see him get some love, whether that's deliciously filthy sex rewards or prank shenanigans or post-injury/post-loss comfort. And Nicky! If you're up for extra Swedes, tell me about Nicky's adventures during the World Cup of Hockey, or about his realization that he's been dating Sasha for--oh god--the last five years or so.

Itching to get your AU on? How about accidental fashion blog star Holts? Or slightly telepathic Nicky who doesn't mean to eavesdrop on his teammates except for how they just keep touching him? I'm happy to see either of these guys paired with any or all of their teammates and angst along the way is lovely, as long as there's a happy ending.

Thank you, dear author, for whatever delightful words you write for me!
