I am remiss in not posting this 'til now... in my defense, I was on vacation, and then I forgot. (Also probably no one ever actually looks at this but I gotta do it for my own peace of mind.)

Anyways! Polyswap was a lot of fun & I definitely want to participate again next year. (The discord server was super fun!)

I received one gift & created one gift. Symmetry!

The fic I received was very cute - lovely Sollux/Karkat/Terezi fluff!

Hey! I'm Grave (ao3 user graveExcitement (arachnids)). Thanks in advice for writing something for me! No matter what you make, I'm excited to read it! I hope one or more of my prompts was able to inspire you, but feel free to ignore the prompts if a different idea strikes you!

Also, the length of the prompts may vary between my requested fandoms. But that doesn't reflect any preference for what I receive! My prompt-brain just got revved up for some things and not others (also I was able to reuse some prompts from previous exchanges.) I'm excited no matter which of my requests you choose to write for!

Do Not Wants / Favored Tropes )

Next, my prompts:

1. The Expanse (TV) )

2. A Song of Ice and Fire )

3. Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri )

4. Dangan Ronpa )

In conclusion, I hope you are inspired by something in this letter! Good luck, and have fun!

First, [community profile] raremaleslashex reveals happened earlier this week! I wrote two things for it:

With His Need Laid Bare (nsfw), Fire Emblem Fates, Leo/Niles kidnapping roleplay. My recipient had a very open-ended signup, so I figured I would write a story that had themes that were fun for me to work on, and that seemed to go pretty well.

Eyes in the Dark (not explicit), The Magnus Archives, Jonathan Sims/Gerard Kaey. I love the mysterious feel of this canon and the strong sense of voice we get for the characters (as well we should, given the medium!) and Gerard is such a fascinating enigma. So I wrote something in the style of the canon's first-person statements about supernatural encounters. No spoilers for the series, though it's definitely inspired heavily by Episode 12, "First Aid."

Second, I'm dithering over signing up for [community profile] femslashex -- I'm fairly sure I do want to sign up, but I have eight fandoms in mind and only six request slots, so I'm hesitating. I thiiiink I'm leaning toward using the final slot for Devil Survivor 2; all the options I have in mind are long shots, but I think that's the one I have the most unsatisfied feelings about. Girls surviving the demon apocalypse together, man. It's a thing.

Third: it's really rare for me to watch live action TV but the household has consumed the first four episodes of Wynonna Earp recently and I love it. It's not Quality Entertainment by any discerning measure but it's so much fun, this paranormal romp made of violence and sass, and the actors are having a good time and playing off each other really enjoyably. Dolls is my fave, I think, but the competition is fierce. (Please don't spoil me for future episodes; I've done pretty well at not learning what's up with these characters and I want to find out through watching.)

ETA Fourth, I forgot earlier: I've been playing Fate/Grand Order since it released in NA and I'm having a lot of fun with it, ridiculous history and all. My user ID is 161,219,808 if any of you are playing and would like to add me. I just equipped the Moonlight Festival CE on my Archer Support for grinding purposes.

What are you doing for fun these days?

I figured out what I really wanted for [community profile] femslashex about two hours after nominations closed, which is "all the SMT4 pairings." Isabeau/Kaga already exists, but also Kaga/Yuriko, Isabeau/Yuriko, Gabby/Yuriko, Hikaru/Yuriko, Hikaru/Isabeau, and basically any and every 3+ combo possible there. The things that would make this most incredibly super awesome are spoilers but my soul is crying.

Ah well. It's a small enough fandom that it wouldn't be likely I'd get a match on it anyway.

I did at least get a start on my [community profile] iddyiddybangbang fic, which is going to scratch some of that itch. I meant for it to be mostly Isabeau/Kaga with a side of Yuriko, but I'm not sure why I thought I could get away with Yuriko being anything but a galvanizing central character. I mean, she's the leader of a feminist chaos cult! Isabeau is so ready for this life-changing experience.

I'm a little afraid the story is going to come out too "babby's first feminist awakening" but fuck the police, I am writing the story my id wants for this character. And between her quietly exasperated state of "why are men like this" for so much of the early game and the fact that she builds a battle party of Pallas Athena, Jeanne d'Arc, and Valkyrie when given the chance, I kinda think Isabeau could use more unapologetic fearless lesbians in her life.

one of those stray thoughts

...brought on by coming up with too many prompts for rare character/ship exchanges:

Does Abe know that Mastema is there in Ashura-Kai HQ?
Does Mastema know who Abe really is?
Are they having a secret supernatural douchebag war for the soul of the demon-wielding yakuza?

I kinda ship it spades now.
