Dear Rare Pair Fest creator,

Thank you so much for writing for me! If you offered these fandoms, I already think you're amazing! If you need me on AO3, I'm The_Plaid_Slytherin.

General Stuff

Some general likes: fluff, romance, plot, PWP, domesticity, hurt/comfort, loyalty, friendship, family/found family, kid/family fic, canon-divergence/fork-in-the-road AUs, happy endings, characters taking care of/depending on each other, established relationships, getting together, unexpected relationships, quiet moments, casefic, seasonal/holiday themes, wooing/courtship, couples who work/do plot together, daemons.

When it comes to smut, my preferences are pretty vanilla. My kinks are more about circumstances than about acts: first times (including first time doing X—I love the newness and the trust in their partner), reunion sex, comfort sex, make-up sex, cuddling, tenderness/touching/kissing (especially hands!), teasing, sharing fantasies.

My DNWs: darkfic, graphic violence, character death, rape/non-con/dub-con, incest, underage sex, AUs that are another setting (e.g., modern times), crossovers, d/s, scat/watersports, and sad/hopeless endings.

Nero Wolfe - Rex Stout
Archie Goodwin/Saul Panzer

I love couples who work together and seeing how they order their lives around their work. I utterly adore Archie and his voice, but I'm also curious to get to know more about Saul. What's his backstory and personal life like? I see hidden depths in there! Maybe Archie does, too? How did he end up working for Wolfe and why does he stick around, when according to Archie, he could be doing much better? I would love anything exploring midcentury New York, be it mystery, adventure, or just some downtime. I also like the rest of the cast so anyone you want to have appear would be welcome!


  • First case they worked together. I love competence, but I also like total disasters that end in kissing.

  • Saul helps Archie out of a jam

  • Saul needs help. He doesn't ask for it, but Archie figures it out.

  • Making a date. Do they get interrupted? Run into a case? Does someone else interfere?

A Song of Ice and Fire – George R. R. Martin

One thing I will note for this fandom is that I have only read the books, so please no show canon.

I love these books so much. I love the worldbuilding, I love the characters. Even when they're frustrating, I love them. The world is so rich and there's so much to explore, especially pre-canon, though I'm also totally into during-canon and post-canon. And I don't think I have a fandom that's better suited for canon-divergence AUs since there are so many points where things could have gone another way. I love Baratheons, Tyrells, and Starks best, but anyone you want to have show up is fine.

Stannis Baratheon/Davos Seaworth

I just can't get enough of these two. So much loyalty kink. I especially love when it goes both ways, with Stannis being loyal to Davos, especially in the face of all those snobby lords of the Narrow Sea who don't get why the smuggler is Stannis' fave. The devotion, the support... I really love unlikely pairs and I think these two count - nobody really appreciates Davos like Stannis does and nobody really knows Stannis like Davos does. I would love to see something where that appreciation is on display.


  • something (dangerous?) happens to make Stannis realize what Davos means to him and he decides to do something about it

  • a reunion anywhere on an imagined future timeline - getting to be together when spring comes at last?

  • something about their early relationship and how that devotion developed. How does Stannis come to terms with having feelings for Davos? How does Davos' routine job (and what exactly is his routine job, before canon?) get established?

  • something set during all those years in King's Landing when Stannis was Master of Ships. What was their day-to-day life like? (Including Robert and/or Renly in some capacity would be stellar.)

  • absolutely any canon-divergence AU that drops these two into different circumstances and makes them deal (different outcomes to canon battles, dead character lives, Stannis doesn't trust Melisandre)

I requested this pairing for Smut Swap, so here is a link to my letter, if you would find that helpful, for more kinks/prompts. (If you want to take a Smut Swap prompt and make it non-smutty, that is cool, too.)

Salladhor Saan/Davos Seaworth

I am really curious about this history for these two. I enjoy their interactions in canon and I think Salla is so much fun. I enjoy the contrast between them, with Salla's more flamboyant style, contrasted Davos' inveterate ordinariness. I would love to know more about them, what drew them together as friends, and how they work in a shippy/sexual context.


  • Adventures in piracy/smuggling! When they're just starting out and failing spectacularly, or when they're very good at what they do. Helping each other out of jams, getting stranded, all the tropes.

  • Salla decides he's going to sweep the clueless younger Davos off his feet. What does Davos have to say about that?

  • Salla's reaction to Davos' decision to smuggle onions into Storm's End and its aftermath. What does he think of Stannis?

I requested this pairing for Smut Swap, so here is a link to my letter, if you would find that helpful, for more kinks/prompts. (If you want to take a Smut Swap prompt and make it non-smutty, that is cool, too.)

Stannis Baratheon/Ned Stark

I'm completely fascinated by this pairing since they seem so similar—they should get along great! But they don't seem to have. Why was that? Was it just because Stannis resented Robert liking Ned more? (And why would he, anyway—is Ned really more fun than boring old Stannis?) I love their (even misguided) commitment to fairness, justice, and doing the right thing. I would just love to see how they would work together, especially with all that has the potential to come between them.


  • When did they first meet? Was it when Ned lifted the siege at Storm's End, or sometime before the war? What were their first impressions of each other?

  • Robert: I like him and he's a big factor in this ship. How does Ned feel about the way Robert treats Stannis? How does Stannis feel about Ned's friendship with Robert? How does Robert feel about these two hitting it off (or being in a relationship, if he finds out)?

  • What if Ned had met Stannis first, before/instead of Robert? Maybe they were fostered together instead of Ned and Robert?

  • Or something even wilder? Change the outcome or circumstances of the Rebellion? (Maybe Ned, at some early point, gets to enlist Stannis' help locating Lyanna. Or what would have happened if Robert died at the Trident?) Robert makes Ned stay and be on the small council rather than going back to Winterfell?

Melisandre of Asshai/Stannis Barathon/Davos Seaworth

Augh, I saw this one and I had to request it. I just want to see how this happened, or why it happened, or how Stannis deals with being in the middle because I almost can't picture it but I so badly want to. Stannis completely overwhelmed? Tension between Davos and Melisandre? Tension that turns into porn that's good for everybody? I love how they're both loyal to Stannis with entirely different methods/objectives, so anything that plays with that would be fantastic.


  • Post-Blackwater, Davos doesn't trust Melisandre, so he decides to not let Stannis be alone with her.

  • Stannis needs both of their counsel. If all three of them are working together, does that change anything in a canon-divergence way?

  • Something exploring the religious conflict! I'd love to see an exploration of the faiths of all three of these characters and how they come in conflict. (One thing that's really interesting to me is that Stannis burns the godswood at Storm's End, but not the sept. Why?)

  • Give Davos some mythic importance! I stumbled upon this page a while ago and I don't even know what to do with it, but I know I love it.

Robert Baratheon/Margaery Tyrell

This is my long shot (er, more so than the others!) but.. it's Rare Pair Fest! I absolutely love the idea of these two. It's inspired by early in the series where Renly and Loras plot to get Margaery married to Robert (presumably with her totally in on it). I would love to see some variation on that AU. I'd love to see how Margaery is able to hold her own with Robert and how they'd change each other. How would she be as queen? I'd love to see her getting involved in politics and interacting with the small council. This is kind of one big prompt (so I don't have a bulleted list for this ship), since it's a fairly specific branching-off point, but if you've got some other idea of how to bring them together, I would love to see it. (Honestly, if Baratheons and Tyrells are happy, I'm happy.)

Love Live! School Idol Project

Nishikino Maki/Yazawa Nico

I fell in love with this show from the very beginning: the music, the costumes, the friendships, the goofy world-building where something like school idols can exist. I was into Nico/Maki practically from the first moment they appeared on-screen together. I love the way Nico torments Maki (that sounds awful when I write it out like that, but if you're reading this section, you know what I mean) but how Maki is always able to put her in her place. I like Nico getting Maki out of her comfort zone (in a good way, I think) and getting her to open up. They're just an opposites-attract delight.

I've watched both seasons of the anime, but not the movie, but this isn't really the type of thing where I'm fussed about spoilers. Just know that if you write something that relies on movie knowledge it's going to go over my head. I also play LLSIF if that's of any inspiration to you.

Some prompts:

  • Any kind of future fic. I'd love to skip ahead to Maki's graduation so we can see what she's up to. Any of the rites of passage: moving in together, what jobs they have, how they handle domesticity (Finances? Chores?) Does Maki really want to become a doctor? How does she deal with pressure from her parents?

  • Real Idol Nico! I would love to see how she'd succeed as an idol, because even without u's I don't want to see her give up on her dreams. (Maki can come, too, but I do think it's more Nico's thing—I'd be just as happy to see her as a cheerleader or reluctant fan, or them having drifted apart post-high school until Nico's face is all over everything.)

  • Meeting the parents! I would love to see Nico meeting Maki's parents, or Maki meeting Nico's whole family, this time as her girlfriend. Or both families getting together.
