Dear Chocolatier 2017

Dear Chocolatier,

Thank you for writing or doing art for me!

I have very broad tastes and optional details are optional. But I have written a letter with more details and optional prompts in case you like that sort of thing. If you come up with a better idea that doesn't hit my DNWs, go for it!

General likes:
Gen: AUs of all types (coffeeshop, high school, in SPAAAAACE, anything!), crossovers/fusions, fluff, angst, darkfic.

Smut: BDSM, dubcon/noncon, mind control, brainwashing.

Art: I am open to all styles and ratings. If you want to experiment with something new, even if it's not a technique you've had much chance to explore before, I'd love that--I will appreciate whatever you do. I like pencil, pen and ink, digital photorealism, cartoons--hell, xkcd has proven that you can do brilliant work with stick figures. Bring it on!

I apologize for art prompts being briefer than writing prompts--I love art, I just don't know how to prompt for it well, and I don't want to restrict you!

DNWs: floods, gender dysphoria, cruelty to cute animals. (Squishing spiders is fine.)

If you need an emergency fandom and are open to shifter paranormal romance, I recommend Fire and Rescue Shifters by Zoe Chant, which is available as Amazon ebooks. You only need the first one, Firefighter Dragon, to do my requested pairing, and it's fast and funny.

Requests: Captive Prince, Fire and Rescue Shifters, Vorkosigan Saga, Yuri!!! on Ice

Captive Prince

Writing prompts: I have a mild preference for Laurent topping because I think it's interesting, but if you have a great idea for Damen topping, don't let me stop you! I'd love to see bodyswap leading to complicated and/or hilarious sex. Or the two of them experimenting with the sex drug whose name I can never remember--you can either skate over how much psychological resistance Laurent would have to any such thing, or make it a feature.

Art prompts: All the costume porn! Or lack of costume, in Damen's case. Or you could draw either of them in the process of getting undressed or dressed, I'm not fussed. Maybe knifeplay?

Fire and Rescue Shifters
Original Male Character/Ash

Writing prompts: I would love to see an OMC with a tragic past and Ash angsting over whether or not to burn it out of him. Anything to do with branding-as-marking would also be a natural here, given that Ash is a phoenix shifter. I don't have a preference for who tops, but I do prefer a happy or bittersweet ending for this pairing rather than a downer ending. If you want to use a crossover male character, be my guest, but please ask (anon commenting is enabled on my DW) if I know the fandom.

Art prompts: Anything that hints at Ash's affinity for fire or his phoenix nature would be great, however you want to incorporate that. Ash in full firefighter panoply and OMC in his equivalent all dressed up.

Vorkosigan Saga
Aral Vorkosigan/Lady Vorrutyer Vorkosigan/Ges Vorrutyer
Aral Vorkosigan/Ges Vorrutyer
Aral Vorkosigan/Lady Vorrutyer Vorkosigan

Writing prompts: All the dirtybadwrong--I'm not under the illusion that any of these were healthy relationships. If you're writing one of the ones with Ges's sister in it, I'm very curious about her take on things. But honestly, the POV of any one of these characters would be fine. For crack, Aral and Ges getting bodyswapped could be especially fun. Or how about that there voyeurism? Or working in Aral's sketching? You have my permission to go to the EVERYTHING IS TRAGEDY AND GOES TO HELL place for any of these, considering.

Art prompts: If you're feeling meta, a sketch of Aral sketching the other(s) could be interesting. A formal portrait. Dress uniforms and fancy dresses.

Yuri!!! on Ice
Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov
Anything involving holiday shopping or sharing delicious meals or just hanging out. Smut also welcome, preferably with a happy ending (hurt/comfort and angst are fine).

Christophe Giacometti & Victor Nikiforov
For Christophe & Victor, friendly rivalry and sex appeal hijinks (but please don't break up canon relationships).

I love watching the figure skating animation and I like watching figure skating in real life, but I don't know the technical details, so you don't need to sweat that on my behalf. I do enjoy reading about people preparing for competitions, so I'd love that if you are so inclined, it just doesn't need to be technically correct because I can't tell the difference.

Art prompts: I love their costumes! Any skating pose in their costumes. Otherwise, maybe characters hanging out at a New Year's or holiday party, or going shopping, or eating together.
