Lots and lots of recs!

Most of these are super short--which is one of the things I love about Chocolate Box, all those bite-size morsels of yummy. What people do with characterization and language in so very few words will always awe me and make me giddy. These aren't all the ones worth reading (I still have a lot to read, I was just starting to burn out and that's really not fair to the fics I was reading, so I'm taking a break.) But here's what I've read and loved so far.

There's a Story for Everyone in Here )

YAY! It's Chocolate Box time again! I am sooo jazzed about this! I'm going to try and keep this as short as I can, because really, for all of these? I just want MORE story. I mean, I'll give you precise prompts if I think of one, but mostly it will just be a little hint to get you in the right direction. ;)

General, my tastes are simple, yet varied enough that there's really no way that you could disappoint me. For example: I am as pumped for angsty and cracktastic, I love canon compliance and AUs.

Tropes and whatnot that I'm a sucker for:

Obviously (based on what I've requested and who I've requested) I like found families, and teams coming together for a common goal. I like hurt/comfort, epistolary, location as character, secondary characters running the show, experimental story telling style (i.e. poetry, 2nd person POV, drabble sets) GO CRAZY!

Request 1: Agent Carter

Ana Jarvis/Edwin Jarvis
Peggy Carter & Howard Stark
Peggy Carter & Edwin Jarvis
Peggy Carter & Ana Jarvis
Peggy Carter & Ana Jarvis & Edwin Jarvis

Ahhh, this show is so great and kick-ass and I love it, but for this, I sort of want wit and hi-jinks, people who are really good at most things to be really bad (or at the least, in need of help) in others. So maybe Peggy needs Jarvis to teach her to dance and in turn, he wants her to teach him how to do one of the many things Peggy excels at-- and Ana and or Howard watches from the sidelines and offer pointers/criticisms. Or Howard needs a favor and Peggy has some demands of her own. Really anything with any of these characters would be awesome, though I'd really only like romance with Ana and Edwin, maybe something domestic and homey in the midst of chaos, or a bit of backstory about how they fell in love.

Request 2 Doctor Who

Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Amy Pond/Rory Williams & River Song
Amy Pond/Rory Williams
Twelfth Doctor/River Song
Jack Harkness/River Song
River Song & Rory Williams
Amy Pond & River Song
Eleventh Doctor & Amy Pond & Rory Williams
Donna Noble & River Song
Twelfth Doctor & Jack Harkness & Missy
Eleventh Doctor & Tenth Doctor

Mostly I'm in Doctor Who for the 11 (or as I call him Doctor Squishy-Face) ♥ I'd love either a missing scene or pre-canon/post canon... like maybe about Amy and Rory winding up together in NYC where they find a little girl who is lost and alone and remembers very little about herself except that once, she had wanted to be an astronaut. Or more bits of "Pond Life" or a page from River and The Doctor's diary. For the Doctor/River (while I ship the fuck out of 11/River) I also wouldn't mind some 12/River, or maybe she compares and contrasts all the Doctors she knows. The Jack/River is just because two people that sexually charged with vortex manipulators are bound to have hooked up at least once, am I right? And how weird would the shenanigans with 12, Jack and Missy be? I have no idea what I want with that, I just really want it. ;)

Request 3 Hart of Dixie

Zoe Hart/Wade Kinsella
Earl Kinsella & Wade Kinsella
Lavon Hayes & Wade Kinsella
Lavon Hayes/Annabeth Nass
Lavon Hayes & Zoe Hart
Lemon Breeland & Wade Kinsella
Wade Kinsella & George Tucker

Bored one long weekend and trolling along Netflix looking for something new and I took a chance on this show. And at the end of the weekend, I was almost at the end of the show. I'm just SUCH a sucker for this sort of story. The fish-out-of-water stories, the quirky town folk stories. Any missing scene would be good, any of the ones without Zoe in them would be awesome to have some pre-canon. For the romance ones, I love Lavon/Annabeth and was really sad about them not winding up together. They were so cute! I also like Wade/Zoe, but would prefer a story of them getting together in all it's messy glory rather than them being happily ever after together.

Request 4 MASH

I don't even remember what characters and relationships were up for consideration in this fandom, but since I love EVERY character (to various degrees) and would LOVE anything with any relationship, I just put "Any." Seriously, go crazy! Specifically? I love Hawkeye being put in his place and being contrite about it. I like missing scenes as well as post season. This is a great fandom to explore the epistolary style. I LOVED the letters home motif that this show did so well. Maybe once they get home, one of them misses the confessional that a letter sent far off to someone who isn't in their lives compels and starts a penpal relationship? What would they say in a letter that they'd never say in person?

Request 5 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)

Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus & Bodhi Rook & Cassian Andor & Jyn Erso & K-2SO
Galen Erso & Bodhi Rook
Chirrut Îmwe & Baze Malbus & Jyn Erso
Chirrut Îmwe & any Jedi
Cassian Andor & Rebel soldiers
Cassian Andor & Jyn Erso & K-2SO
Cassian Andor & his parents
Bodhi Rook & Baze Malbus & Cassian Andor & Chirrut Îmwe & Jyn Erso & K-2SO
Jyn Erso & K-2SO
Cassian Andor & K-2SO

As you can tell with this (and many other of my requests), I'm all about the gen right now. Not that there can't be romantic overtones, but just that I want the relationship explored without the goal of sexy-times being in play. For this one, (and SPOILERS if you haven't seen the movie, look away!) I'd like it to take place either in canon (a missing scene, maybe a character study in relation to the other) or pre-canon. I don't really want any of them to miraculous survive. I know, how sad is that? But I'm not ready to tinker with that particular problem right now. What I'd really like from any Cassian based story is backstory. What exactly did he endure? Who did he lose? Backstory for Chirrut and Baze would be ace too!

Request 6 Star Wars Original Trilogy

Leia Organa/Han Solo
Lando Calrissian & Han Solo
Han Solo/Leia Organa & Luke Skywalker

ANYTHING! WRITE ME ANYTHING FOR THESE PEOPLE AND I WILL BE HAPPY! And this one, if you're so inclined, can get as smexy as you want between Leia and Han. Show me some sweet, sweet love...or some snarky, tumultuous love. Or maybe how Han and Leia start a family and make sure Luke is involve in it. Even bits of Ben's inclusion? Sure, go for it! For the Lando and Han, maybe some backstory? A how-they-met story, or one of their dealings with each other? And by all means, feel free to um... fuse those last two fandoms together to your heart's content. Shhhh, I won't tell. ♥

Basically though, have fun. Don't stress about the details. It's all good.

And if you'd like a second opinion about my likes and whatnots, [personal profile] redsnake05 is your go-to. Not only do they know me really well, they also know how to translate my babble into normal-person speak. ;)
