Dear Rare Pair Writer,

I decided to get this up and operational since I can't be the only one looking at requests and changing up my offers.

So glad that you're going to write me something I'm going to love!

General wants/don't wants:

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. Explicit sex can be good, romance is always in.

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, of course, the characters are already together at boarding school together...)

I am a huge fan of "seemingly unrelated group of people trapped somewhere and discover they a) have something in common and b) can't just leave" - see Clue, see And Then There Were None. Please feel free to get soap opera-ish! Half-siblings no one knew about! Illegitimate siblings you thought were just family friends! Psycho-half-siblings who want to kill you and take your life over! Convenient accidents! Crazy wills and marriages of convenience!

No dubcon/non-con, graphic violence and gore, sexual violence, cruelty to animals. No major character death that isn't canon (feel free to kill extras off).

On to specifics:

 Going to emergency pinch hit seems to have worked out.

 I got an awesome story, called The Wild (Star Trek TOS, Mirror Pike/Mirror Number One).  So I threw this mirror couple on my nominations and request list because I had extra space, and because I love Pike/Number One.  It makes me happy.  I love Number One on her own, but the two of them together are so good.

 And that was a really good choice.  The ISS Enterprise finds itself at a little planet called Talos IV... the inverted events in this are nicely done, and it addresses a hole in the original episode "Mirror, Mirror" - how did Kirk get rid of Pike?  (I believe in the ep it references his murder.)  There's also a nice callout to The Menagerie.  And because this is a ship fest, the new Adam and Eve.  It's over 4400 words of awesomeness!  Go read it.

I also got a treat (I love treats, and I so rarely get them) that may interest more of the crowd that hangs around here.  It's a Vorkosigan Saga work called Till Things Are Brighter, dealing with Ivan/Tej before Aral's funeral.  I love Ivan/Tej and this is so wonderfully them.  The author proposes the link between funerals and fatigues that seems VERY Barrayaran.  It's a tender shippy scene to which I recommend bringing a tissue. I really really like it.

I'll do a recs post once reveals happen, but at a first glance there's a Bucky Barnes/Maria Hill fic that looks promising, and a sensual Mummy fic with Evy/Rick/Ardeth that I don't recommend reading with curious eyes in the room.
