You have been directed here from LJ because of their recent stupidities. Sorry about the redirect.

Dear DJ

Oh how I love you for writing me a story, not in a stalker-love kind of way, but a very thankful, gosh you're a kind soul kind of way so may you have a lovely Jukebox experience. I do have a few DNW's (and every time I look at someone's letter I think, "Oh no, do I have to add that as well?") mine are below. I have made a few suggestions for each prompt but they are exactly that, just suggestions. It's your story.

I like: 
  • Complex many-faceted characters from all walks of life
  • Characters that have human frailties and are flawed even if they also have strength and power
  • Fairy tales rewritten in ways that reinvigorate and give new twists that make them contemporary
  • I am a sucker for superhero or super villain origin stories
  • Fantasy where characters are challenged mentally, physically, and emotionally
  • Science fiction that is heavy on science
  • Strong world building
  • Urban fantasy (minus the romance)
  • Also a sucker for happy endings, fluff, crack, plottiness, hurt/comfort, kindness, height difference, love, tenderness, friendship, families being families, curtain fic, heroism, magic, fix-it fics, holiday fics, rule 63, touch, intimacy, mentors being awesome, women being awesome, secret identity failures, aaaaaand did I mention happy endings.
Totes happy to receive fic with these:
  • Offensive language
  • Gen, het, slash, or femslash - it's your choice.
Specifically do not want please:
  • Explicit sexual content of any kind
  • Gratuitous violence (excludes fantasy violence or comedic violence)
  • Sexual violence, dub-con, non-con, abuse, incest, underage, pregnancy
  • Self harm and suicide
  • Angst or depression (it's just too hard for me to read stories about depression as a sufferer)
  • Animal abuse or pet death
  • Character death
  • I'm sorry if it feels restrictive but I have reasons.

Requests (in no particular order):

Team - Lorde (Song) | Fanfic | YouTube | Lyrics

Call all the ladies out, They're in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats, A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in, Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room


I can think of a lot of possibilities with this story: superheroes or villains, a masquerade ball of aliens, fantasy, sci-fi, urban fantasy, fairytale. The choice is yours and if you want to go somewhere else with it, please do. 


Glory and Gore - Lorde (Song) | Fanfic | YouTube | Lyrics

Delicate in every way but one (the swordplay)
God knows we like archaic kinds of fun (the old way)
Chance is the only game I play with, baby
We let our battles choose us


This feels like a song about fighting and drinking, drinking and fighting, more fighting, and then having fun afterwards. It could be the story of an epic bar brawl in a fantasy pub that spills out into a city, a cosplay battle between enraged fandoms at a 'con, a D&D type situation that takes on horrible reality, a book club getting out of hand, the possibilities are endless. I don't think I would like a straight up gladiator type story please.


What it feels like for a girl - Madonna (Music Video) | Fanfic | YouTube | Lyrics

This video speaks for itself, write whatever it inspires you to write. I love the attitude in it, the elderly woman has just as much grit as the main character.


Run Boy run - Woodkid (Music Video) | Fanfic | YouTube | Lyrics

This video is full of such cool imagery, black and white in the style of an old monster film, it appears dream-like, running and falling and running again with friends and foes (although you never see them). What is the boy running from or to though?

 
Well, that was a marathon I hear you say. It was, I agree, but thank you for persevering. :)
