It goes without saying that I know I'll love what you write, so good luck!

General Stuff:

Stories don’t need to be super sappy and sugary/fluffy, but please don’t get all grim and dark. Bittersweet can work if there are hopeful tinges.

I like humor, and I don't think I do a good job of writing it - sparkling snappy dialogue always works!

I generally prefer het or gen. I'm good with explicit sex, but I am not really into any kinks.

I'm a fan of AU, but prefer canon-divergence or "what-if" scenarios, rather than "all the characters are at boarding school together" types (Unless they ARE all at boarding school together...)

Stories where problems are solved by feminine insight/intuition rock!

If you know more than one of the requested fandoms, I love crossovers. But only if you like to write them!

I love urban legends - the vanishing hitchhiker in particular.

I also have a fascination for unsolved crimes/mysteries, people who've disappeared, and bodies with no names.

Please no explicit violence/gore (nothing higher than what already exists in a canon) and no graphic sexual violence. I'd also prefer you avoid major (i.e. nominated) character death. Also please no animal violence/cruelty.

On to the specifics:

1. Star Trek: The Original Series
Number One/Christopher Pike, Number One & Spock

Here for Number One - shippy stuff with Pike (can be a little angsty or "what the hell, we have tonight" or working relationship with Spock - or combo of the 2!

So, I love Number One. So much. I would love more things about this Enterprise and this crew, especially if it involves Number One and Chris Pike acknowledging deeper feelings or imitating a West Texas screen door OR Number One and Spock being logical and competent and probably driving others to drink. But I love the whole group. Feel free to work in stuff from DC Fontana's book Vulcan's Glory - which if you are a fan of these folks and have NOT read it, I suggest you rectify that situation.

These two prompts could go together nicely, I think. But up to you. I do ask that you avoid inklings of Chris Pike's TOS fate, however. They can be angsty about the fact that the captain and first officer probably shouldn't be doing each other, but no pain and suffering please.

2. Greek and Roman Mythology
Agamemnon & Odysseus, Ἀγαμέμνων | Agamemnon/Κλυταιμνήστρα | Clytemnestra (Hellenistic Religion & Lore), Clytemnestra & None

How do Agamemnon and Odysseus interact? Ag. seems like a super tool and Odysseus has to deal with him - how does he do it?

Clytemnestra by herself - what does she think about everything?

Agamemnon/Clytemnestra - something before everything goes downhill

So, Agamemnon always seems like that boss who drives people up the wall, the whole office depends on his mood, kind of a jerk, and not even that great - while Odysseus is the brains of the operation. Tell me more. Feel free to have Odysseus show Agamemnon up.

Clytemnestra - another one of the women in Greek lore who gets bashed unnecessarily. I have to say that if my husband went to go chase after some guy who stole my sister from his brother, sacrificed my child for good winds, stayed away for 10 years, and then brought home some playthings - I have to tell you, I would probably have drowned him as well. Give me something about her. How does she fill her days while he is gone? Is she playing Aegisthus just as much as he is playing her? I've written an AU story that features her, you may find it of interest:

Agamemnon/Clytemnestra - I think she must have loved him once. Perhaps quite a lot, given how much she came to hate him for his betrayal. Give me a story early in their relationship, perhaps when he still cared about his new queen, or courting her, or what have you.

3.Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Ivan Vorpatril/Tej Arqua Vorpatril Laisa Toscane Vorbarra & Ivan Vorpatril

Ivan/Tej - sexy sweet, I love these two!
Laisa & Ivan - interested in how these two might interact in social settings

Of all Bujold couples, Ivan/Tej are one of my very favorites. I love how they play off each other, I love how she calls him "Ivan Xav", I love how he can be himself with her, I love them. It can be sweet and fluffy or sexy and risque. I would really love something set in the Barrayaran social whirl, perhaps when they are home between assignments?

Laisa and Ivan - I like how Gregor and Ivan interact with each other, and I'd like to see how Laisa and Ivan interact - either large social settings where they're both on and "in character" or a more intimate family event. Ivan is Alys' son, after all, and he's alive to social nuances (and I imagine to ladies' fashion). Not interested in Laisa/Ivan... but if you wanted to do something that was Gregor/Laisa and Ivan/Tej, I'd not say no.

Or maybe they share a guilty pleasure show or book series? I can just imagine a Barrayaran version of Downton Abbey or such.

4.Downton Abbey
Anna Bates & Mary Crawley, Edith Crawley & Marigold, Daisy Mason & Beryl Patmore, Elsie Hughes & Beryl Patmore

I have NOT seen Season 6.

Anna & Mary - hijinks, and how Anna is more like her sister than anyone else
Edith & Marigold - something HAPPY
Daisy & Beryl - work and friends
Elsie & Beryl - friendship

I just watched Season 5, but have not seen 6.

Anna & Mary - These two have a sisterly bond that I appreciate. Anna does work for her, but Mary has certainly gone above and beyond her role as employer, and Anna has gone pretty far for her as well. Some sort of disaster-averting or hijinks would be awesome (like moving the dead body in S1 or S2...) Please no references to Anna being raped, please.

Edith & Marigold - Whatever you do for Edith, give her some happiness. The focus can be more on Edith than on Marigold, but something happy for these two. Please no Lady Mary in this story. You can also leave Marigold out if that works for you.

Daisy & Beryl - I love how these two work together, care about each other, and how they can drive each other nuts. I love how Beryl pushes and encourages Daisy, but is pretty set on her remaining in service. Maybe quiet time in the kitchen, or Daisy teaching Beryl something for a change?

Elsie & Beryl - I love how these two (with or without Carson) get things done. I also like how they interact as friends. Feel free to give them some girl time, or drag Carson in and have it be a work-related dilemma. (House party?)

If you feel like combining some of these, go for it! I'd be totally down for a house party story with hijinks and plotting and good moments.
