Dear Het Swap Writer,

Thank you so much for writing for me! I'm sure I'll love whatever you come up with. I truly love each of these fandoms and relationships (or, in the case of Original Work, am really intrigued by it!), so I'll just be happy someone else is interested in them, too. :) I'm The_Plaid_Slytherin on AO3.

General Likes
* fluff
* canon-divergence/what-if AUs
* seasonal/holiday themes
* domesticity and slice-of-life, including curtainfic
* hurt/comfort
* loyalty kink
* casefic
* kidfic or family fic
* wooing/courtship
* competence, especially in couples who work together and are totally in love with each other's skills
* care-taking such as bathing together, washing a partner's hair
* cuddling and bed-sharing
* reunions
* long-term pining finally being requited
* daemons added to canon settings (as in daemons have always existed in Westeros or a galaxy far far away, not a HDM crossover/fusion)
* happily ever after endings

When it comes to smut, my preferences are pretty vanilla. My kinks include first times, body worship, praise kink, clothes kink, oral, anal, intercrural, intergluteal, bath sex/hair washing, loyalty kink, shaving, normally composed characters losing control, bed sharing/sex for warmth, hurt/comfort, blindfolds, hand kink/hand-holding during sex, trust, role play.

DNWs
* unrequested ships (especially canon ships when I've asked for something non-canon—I often multiship but only one thing at a time!)
* darkfic, loads of unresolved angst, or sad/hopeless endings. Angst on the way to a happy ending is okay! But I much prefer to see it resolved than end on a dark, sad, or angsty note.
* character death (of requested characters and their friends or allies)
* rape/non-con or dub-con
* incest
* underage sex
* AUs that are another setting (e.g., modern times)
* crossovers
* BDSM or d/s
* scat or watersports



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

Arya Stark/Edric Storm

I love the idea of these two together! It makes a nice alternative to Sansa/Joffrey in pairing Ned's daughter with Robert's son and I'm curious about Edric growing up as an acknowledged bastard of the king. (And we know Arya doesn't mind bastards.) They're both on the outskirts of their society, and thus I think it would be interesting if they, uh, met. Because they've never met. But there's no reason they can't! I would prefer futurefic where they're aged-up (definitely for anything sexual) and I certainly don't mind if you skip over years of plot to get there (and I welcome unreasonably happy outcomes for my faves' plotlines).

* Meeting in Essos, with optional identity porn where they don't know who each other is. I just can't resist the vague proximity they have to each other. Maybe Arya finds herself near him on a mission. Maybe he's in Braavos and runs into those "Who is the most beautiful woman in the world?" guys and he answers wrong and Arya has to save his ass.

* Futurefic in King's Landing with King Stannis (natch). Are they forced to work together? Does Shireen play matchmaker? I'd love to see Arya as an older teen/adult trying to integrate back into her "normal" society and carving out a role for herself, and I feel like an unconventional, slightly inappropriate partner is what she needs.


Ormund Baratheon/Rhaelle Targaryen

These are just historical characters whom we know nearly nothing about, but I'm fascinated by their story. And not just because they're the grandparents of Robert, Stannis, and Renly! The Targaryens seemed so reluctant to intermarry with the other houses, and Rhaelle is obviously a prize to settle a feud and end a rebellion. And Ormund is described as Lyonel's "heir" and not his son, so did he even expect to inherit Storm's End? I love unexpected situations and arranged marriages that blossom into love, so anything that fleshed out these two would be lovely.

* Ormund and Rhaelle getting to know each other over the years before their marriage. It sounds like she was sent to Storm's End before she was old enough to wed, so I would love to see the lead-up to the wedding. How much control would they have over the timing? Did they fall in love before the wedding, or after it? What was it like to know for years that you were going to marry this person?

* Rhaelle's relationship with her family. What was it like to give up being a princess, to move away from all she'd ever known and become part of a new house? How did she maintain her identity? How much of it did she pass on to her son Steffon or share with her husband?


Robert Baratheon/Lyanna Stark

THESE TWO. It's like completely and utterly missing the point in canon, but in my contrary way, I just want to know how they could have worked out. It's obvious Robert didn't really know the real Lyanna, and she wanted nothing to do with him, but what if circumstances had been different? Could they have gotten along? I like arranged marriages with conflict, getting to know each other, and eventual happy endings. They're both passionate people and if they got on the right wavelength, they could be great together.

* Harrenhal AU: Robert finds out who the Knight of the Laughing Tree is and a hundred times more attracted to her. Bonus points for identity porn or mutual secret-keeping. Like, maybe, she needs help—like an injury? and she doesn't want her brothers/father to know, so she reluctantly asks Robert. Or he ends up fighting her before he finds out who she is and he has to rethink everything he thought he knew.

* Rebellion AU: Lyanna rescues herself. Then she rescues Robert. (Or any spin on the Rebellion that has them being competent/fighting together.) I feel like Robert only thinks he wants a sweet wife, but he is extremely wrong. And I'd love to see what kind of queen she would be/how they would rule side by side. I'd be ridiculously pleased to see Robert as a competent king who listens and grows and is trying to be a better person.




Star Wars Original Trilogy

Lando Calrissian/Leia Organa

I love the dynamic we saw from these two in Empire. I love Lando's flirtiness and Leia's take-no-crap attitude. I'd love to see that develop into a real relationship. I love Leia as a leader of the Rebellion and Lando doing what he had to for the people of Bespin, but jumping full-in to the Rebellion as soon as the deal fell through. I like that Lando being a businessman and having that responsibility grounds him somewhat, and gives him his own interests that might be in conflict with Leia's. Because they're totally hot when they clash.

* Post-Empire. How does Leia come to trust Lando? One of the things I love about Lando is that he does acknowledge his own part in getting Han frozen in carbonite. Lando angsting and blaming himself until Leia can't help but come around to him because he's such a good guy underneath his scoundrel exterior. And she completely hates it.

* I love Lando's flashiness as a contrast to Han. I'd love to see how Leia responds to that. What's life with Lando like? How does Leia integrate into that life? Does he ever try to spoil her, and how does she respond to it?

* Post-canon! I'm dying to see how these two would work permanently, long-term. I'm not familiar with much of the old EU, but for the new canon, I have at least read Bloodline, which is pretty far removed from the end of ROTJ, so there's a lot of gap space to explore. How does Leia begin to turn the Rebellion into a new Republic? How does that work with Lando's ambitions? And what exactly are Lando's ambitions? Tell me more! :D





Original Work

Queen/Male Advisor

This tag gives me endless glee; I just love the images it forms in my head. I love powerful women and the men who admire them. I love loyalty kink. So of course I had to request this!

My setting preference is medieval fantasy because I love kings and queens and castles and all those clichés. And I really love the idea of a queen ruling in her own right. Is that what happens by custom in this world, or did she end up on the throne for lack of a male heir? Is the advisor maybe the only one who trusts her/thinks she's doing a good job? I'd love to see them working together, trying to deny their feelings because they're majorly inappropriate, and then eventually not being able to resist. Or maybe she has to win him over and prove to him that she's a good queen.

Does the queen have to decide between marrying a more suitable man of noble/royal birth or sticking with her advisor? What do other people think of this relationship? I'm not picky about what kind of advisor. He could be the minister of absolutely anything. I'm happy as long as he thinks his queen is great. :)



Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling

Minerva McGonagall/Horace Slughorn

These are two of my favorite Hogwarts teachers and I love the idea of the two of them together. It's Slytherin and Gryffindor, two people who have devoted their lives to academia, and two very powerful wizards. They're obviously different in a lot of ways, but I think those differences could make for a strong partnership and I want to see how they are together.

* Teaching! I am of the opinion that Horace is actually a really good teacher and so is Minerva. I'd love to read something that dealt with that in some capacity. Staff room debates, collaborating on a lesson, something like that.

* One of my favorite scenes in canon is the final battle at Hogwarts, specifically Horace and Minerva both dueling Voldemort. (And I'm not normally a big fan of the movies but I'm fascinated by magical shields and wards and all the protections on Hogwarts, so I loved Horace's inclusion in that scene!) I'd love something that built on their magical skills, especially something that explored their common ground of Transfiguration because Horace turned himself into a chair. He must be a whiz at Transfiguration even though he's the potions professor.

* Rebuilding Hogwarts! I am in love with the idea of Headmistress McGonagall and I also headcanon Horace staying on indefinitely because after the war, going off to hide in retirement no longer really appealed to him. I love the idea of him doing something to redeem the good name of Slytherin House (of which he's surely Head of House). Can he be Deputy Head? Them working together would be fantastic.
