Dear Yuletide friend,

First of all I'm sorry for the half finished letter I thought I'd have a few more days before the matching was done.

hello, new friend I hope you find this letter illuminating and helpful and I want you to know I'm pretty flexiable person so if you have a story about X that you always wanted to write go right ahead and write it for me the prompts are just suggestions to help you if your stuck.

My only strong request is no crossovers. I'm going to be a bit redundant here but I want to be clear. No X characters in Y setting, no X characters meet Y characters from another fandom, and no crossovers with the alternative media versions of the universe/characters (aka no MCU, X-men evolution, etc). HOWEVER, generic AUs and comic multiverse aus are fine. So you can do Champions coffeeshop au, or House of M Iceman, but you can't put Kamala in Spiderman: Homecoming or Shatterstar in The Hunger Games. I hope that makes things clear and didn't belabor the point too much.

As I mentioned in the prompts I do all my comic book reading through marvel unlimited so I'm always about 6-7 issues behind. You don't really have to worry about spoilers because tumblr generally spoils me on anything big long before I get the issue but try to keep it in mind when your planning that I might need more explaining then you would think.

So This is where I get into my Fandoms, I hear the things I should do is over-explain and talk about what it is I actually like about these fandoms, so I'm gonna try.

Champions: Sam Alexander, Miles Morales, Kamala Khan

So first of all you don't have to include all of them in your story. If you got an idea that just focus on one or two of them that's fine and if you want to include the whole line-up that's cool too. I just love their friendship so much. I love that Miles and Sam both think Kamala is just the greatest thing since sliced bread. I like that Kamala will sometimes just show up at Miles house, just 'cause. I like that when Sam is acting weird and they'll borrow the avengers plane to go see him. I think I mentioned in the extra sections you can slice and dice the shipping anyway you want from gen to ot3.

So the prompts-
1- I mentioned wanting to see them as the future of the avengers/superhero community. So as far that goes I want to kind of see how their friendship grows and where it goes as they take on more responsibility and move into new phases of life.

2-this was best friends are best friends. They all got stuff going on in their personal lives and they all care about each other and will drop everything save the world ending to be their for their friends stuff.

Iceman- any

Bobby Drake is one of favorite marvel characters ever. I have loved him through all the years, through terrible writers and awful awful plots. I love that he's tries to keep things light, that he's the only one of the original X-men to sort of make it through with heart and mind intact (though it's been close a time or two). I like that's he's kind of a mess in the same way that I'm kind of mess, just as scared of success as he was of failure.

Prompts:

1-Bobby/Johnny - like I said the secret shallow heart of this pairing is fire and ice porn, so that's all you really need to know to make me happy, but since I have trapped let me tell you why I think they might actually be pretty good together.

So to begin they are the sort of friends where Marvel wikipedia says they're friends but they haven't actually shared a ton of time together on panel. (some good stuff to read if your interested in what there 616 relationship looks like is issue 16 of X-men first class (2007) for a more modern take and Strange Tales 120 for classic story with just them). So personally I think it's more that their old friends at this point more then they are particularly close friends. As both the comics mentioned early sort of emphasize they come from a really similar place of being the baby of their team and the one no one really takes seriously (and they've both bought into that view of themselves to some degree). Which is sort of what bonds them as teenagers. As they grow up in the comics both sort of have difficulty breaking from that perception of themselves as they aged out of it. This is especially true of Bobby whose major character marker up until recently was his stunted growth.

In addition they both sort of have issues with their powers and sort of powerful they can be. In Johnny's case this is being afraid of the sort of destructive nature of his power. Fire hurts, it can be used for all sorts of good but even a small fire will hurt if you get to close. So Johnny's always sort of got watch himself and be careful that he doesn't hurt anyone when he's flamed on. Ice is a much slower, much less dangerous power on the surface but Bobby could theoretically destroy all life on earth and he's definitely afraid of embracing the potential of how strong he could be. He doesn't really have to be concerned about unintentionally hurting the people close to him most of the time, especially not at first when he can barely ice up, so it's more of an internal fear of who he is and what he might be capable of choosing to do like as a person, where Johnny is afraid what he can do and what he might damage he might cause by his carelessness. But it sort of amounts to the same sort of push pull of loving (cause they do both really love their powers) and fearing their powers (as I see it, you know depending on the writer/artist).

I'm sorry I blathered on way to long but like the tl/dr take away I was trying for was they can understand where each other is coming from in way that not many other people in their lives can.

2 - This was kind of self-explanitory right? Bobby's been a round and (mostly) written as straight for 60ish years so there's a whole mine's worth of history in which our understanding of Bobby's inner thoughts and motives have changed. So go ahead, if nothing from the current run inspires you, mine that silver and bronze age. (I mentioned Zelda in the ao3 form and if you were unfamiliar she's Bobby's first girlfriend from the silver age).

3-Finally young Bobby's feelings about his future. Just yeah, character study stuff. I love character study.


X-factor

So like I love a good mystery/PI noir in the vain of Raymond Chandler. So X-factor was basically my favorite for a while gave me exactly what I wanted. Add in Rictor and Shatterstar and I was in comics heaven. So if want to give me a fun and/or dark mystery/love story with my favorite mutant/alien boyfriends I'd be so down with that.

otherwise just stuff, anything, everything. I just love them so much, please write me stories with them. I don't think I signed up quite right because I did mean to do the I want both of them in the story not either, but you know either is okay too. They got stories of their own that are really interesting to if you got me because you want to write only one that's fine I love them both together and apart.

Again sorry A- this wasn't ready when you first checked and B-for that long tangent on bobby and johnny (not sorry enough to erase it though). As you probably know this is all optional, I just figured I like to know a lot about my person and what they like and want so I should try to provide you with the same, but if your the person who likes free reign then by all means don't even pay attention to this (except the crossover thing, really no crossovers, please).

Thank you again for writing for me. I love you dearly anonymous person.

My Dearest Author,

The General Section:

I like modern fantasy and near sci-fi. I like dystopias and post-apocalypse stories. For romance I like soulmates, hurt/comfort, friends to lovers, and fake dating. I like plot over porn most of the time but if you decide to write pwp I'm going to need feelings exploding all over the place. In that vain I like first-time fic and that can mean anything from first kiss to first gangbang as long as it's someone's first time doing it. I also like the secretly a virgin trope while i'm on the subject. But enough telling you about my weird kinks, let's move on.

For this exchange I'm cool receiving romantic or gen fic and all the below pairings can be treated as either romantic, sexual, friendship, or otherwise platonic pairs. If you go the gen route I like my non-romantic relationship fic to be just as intense as romantic relationships, just because they don't want to date/bang doesn't mean they don't love each other, won't walk to the ends to the earth if they thought the other needed them to.

I don't mind unhappy endings or angst so go ahead and make me cry

I don’t have any super strong dislikes, but I’m not a big fan of bodily fluids going in mouths (I mean it’s cool if X swallows after a bj I don’t mind that but something like drinking cum out of a cup is pretty much an automatic gag reflex for me), on that subject i’m not a huge fan of pwp, but I do like porn as an exploration of character or relationships. In general i’d prefer you to avoid deathfic, non-con, infidelity, you know the usual stuff, but if you really feel that is the way your fic is going it will probably be ok.

I'm a little burnt out on coffee shops, retail, and college/high school aus right now so I'd prefer none of that. Other non-hockey aus are fine.


Tuukka Rask/Shawn Thornton

So I kind of like that this pairs draw isn't really hockey based. They don't have the line chemistry, beautiful hockey together thing. They just like each other so stuff about what it is that drew them together would be nice to see.

some ideas
-dealing with long distance (dealing with Shawn telling Tuukka he'd retire and then signing for two more years with Florida)
-Getting together (I should probably have mentioned above I'm a sucker for getting together fic)


David Krejci/David Pastrnak

So i like stories about discovering your heroes are people too. Including dealing with that shift in how you see them and how changes your relationship.

Tuukka Rask/Anton Khudobin

Ok this one i have thought way less about, i just read that soulmark story, and was like yeah, I could be into this, so I figured i'd give it a try. Also there was this gif http://emcindylou.tumblr.com/post/81446565703/tuukka-rask-and-anton-khudobin-catching-up and like goalie dynamics of a starter/star goalie and a bounced around perpetual back up and career envy v. being happy for your lover's success.

I'm a little burnt out on coffee shops, retail, and college/high school aus right now so I'd prefer none of that. Other non-hockey aus are fine, with the one request that if your going to do a lightning normal people jobs au, you do a hospital AU with Dr. Stamkos and anesthesiologist Johnson (https://twitter.com/brittaml16/status/784089573982887936, http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/12641820/nhl-tyler-johnson-long-road-overnight-success)

I know I said no college, but college hockey is okay if it's not an au or only a partial au--basically i'm not interested in guys going to class or being in a frat or you know quintessential college stories but if you want to write something that includes Eichel's or Gaudreau's time playing NCAA hockey I would like that.

Mostly I just want you to have fun writing!

The specifics:
These are optional of course and I am mostly prompting towards the romantic relationship because it seems like most people like writing romance but like I said if you want to write gen for them I would love it.

Martin Jones/Tyler Toffoli
I just want someone to pull on Tyler's pretty curls. Okay, I want more than that, but he does have very pretty curls I wouldn't mind if they showed up in your story :). For this pair I would enjoy a story that deal with their (not so new anymore) rivalry and how that effects their relationship. It's up to you if you want to do established relationship, a getting together, or angsty break up fic. I like them all.


Nate Mackinnon/Jonathon Drouin
Well they've had quite different career paths, haven't they. I wonder how/if that's impacted their friendship? What did Nate think when Jo was suspended?

Johnny Gaudreau/Morgan Reilly
They were really cute at the world cup. If you wanted to write them as sexy roleplaying Eichel and Mcdavid after this video https://twitter.com/TeamNA_WCH/status/776562833630912512?s=09 that might be fun. If you want to just do a cute getting together story that would be fun too.

Steven Stamkos/Victor Hedman
They've got the whole highly tauted prospects coming up in the league together story and how their the only two people from that time left-including all the management. And the interviews they did about signing their matching extensions and wanting to play with each other for a long time. So for them I'd like a something about supporting each through the lean years and huge changes and the pressure of saving a franchise.

Tyler Johnson/Ondrej Palat
In contrast to the above, they have the no one believed in us but we proved them all wrong together story. But it's still a very similar sort of dynamic supporting each other through everything, and a relationship built on knowing you can trust someone to always believe in you even when it feels like no one else does.

Dear Author,


The General Section:

I like modern fantasy and near sci-fi. I like dystopias and post-apocalypse stories. For romance I like soulmates, hurt/comfort, friends to lovers, fake dating, hate to love you, the usual romantic comedy sort of tropes. I like plot over porn most of the time. I like first times, I like virgin fics and loss of virginity as a central focus (however you think the character would define virginity-it can be a fuzzy concept)

For this exchange I'm cool receiving gen fic and all the below pairings can be treated as either romantic, sexual, friendship, or otherwise platonic pairs. For platonic relationships I like found family and mentorship stuff. I like my non-romantic relationship fic to be just as intense as romantic relationships, just because they don't want to date doesn't mean they don't love each other, won't walk to the ends to the earth if they thought the other needed them to.

You might notice down in particulars section I have a few player/couch/gm pairings listed. I really like stories that go into the dynamics of those relationships and it's not necessarily sexual. I admit I have a kink for age and power difference both healthy and not so if you want to write the kinky sleeping with the coach for ice time fic I will be very happy, but also if you just want to write about the volatile but completely professional relationship between Vinny and Torts that is totally up my allay too.

I don’t have any very strong dislikes, but I’m not a big fan of bodily fluids going in mouths (I mean it’s cool if X swallows after a bj I don’t mind that but something like drinking cum out of a cup is pretty much an automatic gag reflex for me), on that subject i’m not a huge fan of pwp, but I do like porn as an exploration of character or relationships. In general i’d prefer you to avoid deathfic, non-con, infidelity, you know the usual stuff, but if you really feel that is the way your fic is going it will probably be ok. I don't mind angst or tragedy or sad endings either.

I'm a little burnt out on coffee shops and college aus right now so I'd prefer none of that. Other non-hockey aus are totally fine though.

Mostly I just want you to have fun writing!

So I sort of cheated in my sign-up I think because I just listed one guy and am about to list all the people I ship that person with for you to pick.

1)Ondrej Palat
-Palat/Johnson
-Palat/Johnson/Kucherov
-Palat/Gudas
-Palat/Drouin

2)Steven Stamkos

-Stamkos/Bishop
-Stamkos/Downie

4)Jonathon Drouin

Dear Author,

I'm pretty new to the Bruins so I don't know a whole lot about these pairs. Please consider this your permission slip to just go wild!

So in general I like:

I like modern fantasy and near sci-fi. I also like straight up space aus (firefly, star trek, your own universe). I like dystopias and post-apocalypse stories. I like soulmates, hurt/comfort, friends to lovers, fake dating, hate to love you, the usual romantic comedy sort of tropes. I like plot over porn most of the time. I like first times, I like virgin fics and loss of virginity as a central focus (however you think the character would define virginity-it can be a fuzzy concept)

and I dislike:

I don’t have any very strong dislikes, but I’m not a big fan of bodily fluids going in mouths (I mean it’s cool if X swallows after a bj, I don’t mind that, but I don’t really enjoy something like drinking cum out of a cup), on that subject I’m not a huge fan of pwp, but I do like porn as an exploration of character or relationships. In general I’d prefer you to avoid deathfic, non-con, infidelity, you know the usual stuff (though this up for negotiation if your story wants to take you there).


So the specifics...well I don't really know a lot about them so the specifics are kind of broad.

Bergeron/Marchand: opposites attract, hockey soulmates, best friends on and off the ice, please tell me how Marchand keeps getting these upstanding Canadians to love him.

Rask/Thorton: I heard they own a boat together.

Krejci/Pastrnak: I heard there was hero-worship, I love hero-worship.

P/S:
If you really want to write a pair I didn't list that is totally ok too. I just want to you to make me love your team/ship :)
Dear hockey Festivus writer

1) I'm sorry I didn't have this written before assignments were out, please forgive me.

2) the letter

The Specifics

I'm not going to lie to you author, I don't really have prompts I signed up for this because I like exchanges but totally blanked on what to request so here are some vague thoughts that you can run with or ignore at your pleasure.

Jeff Carter: With Carter I would be interested in something with his relationship with Toffoli (gen or otherwise) or I'm sure he has many grievances he'd like to air with Mike if you'd like something on theme.

PK Subban: Family Dinners when your brother is a Bruin can be pretty tense.

Tyler Johnson: Breaks his slump, it's a festivus miracle! (I kid, he broke his slump last night). or you could do something with this


Sergei Bobvrovsky: HUGS! that first hug after 8 loses was full of feelings give them to me :)
Dear Author,

Hi, it appears you have gotten stuck with me :) that’s ok I’m pretty easy to please

The General Section:

I like modern fantasy and near sci-fi. I also like straight up space aus (firefly, star trek, your own universe). I like dystopias and post-apocalypse stories.

In general i’d prefer you to avoid deathfic, non-con, infidelity, you know the usual stuff.

Mostly I just want you to have fun writing people you don’t always get a chance to!

The Specifics Section:

Sergei Bobrovsky/Nick Folingo

I don’t really have any solid prompts for these two, I just want all the fic. I know that’s not really helpful. I think they might be fun soulmates, or a cop au (or both or space cops)

Martin St. Louis/Steven Stamkos

I would like to see kneeling verse stuff with them. Steven talks a lot about how important Marty is to him and how much of an effect Marty taking Steven under his wing when he was 18 had in Steven’s career. If kneeling verse isn’t your thing, I would just love to see some of that aspect of their relationship explored.

Chris Stewart/Wayne Simmonds

The first thing they did when they got signed to an NHL team was buy a house together, I would love a fic about their house.

PK/Sidney

Art student PK and shy scientist Sid AU

Nathan Mackinnon/Jonathan Drouin

They seem really good for an online dating story, meeting at summer camp staying in touch with email and chats, eventually getting reunited.

Just to reiterate, these prompts are just suggestions! If you have an idea and you really want to write it go for it, none of my do not wants are hard lines so if you really need to use one for your story do it.
