Hi there! Thanks for your patience while I finished up this letter, I hope it will help! I’m Kiraly, both here and on AO3
. This is my first time doing the Every Woman Exchange, so I’m excited to see what lady-centric work you come up with! In general, I’m very easy to please as long as you avoid my Do Not Wants. Everything else is just to give you ideas, so if you come up with something that’s not on here, go for it!
Cute, fluffy stuff. It probably isn’t possible to write something too sweet, so feel free to pour the sugar on. For gen fics, I love to see characters building friendships, working together, going on adventures, getting into (and out of) trouble. Anything with characters out in nature is pretty great too. For shippy fics, I have a huge weakness for cuddling, (mild) hurt/comfort, and, uh...characters getting soaked and having to snuggle to warm up, haha. Kisses are good (awkward or sweet or steamy). I’m also totally down for things like “characters have to share a bed for some reason” or other situations where the characters kind of get thrown together and then develop feelings for each other.
I’ve requested art or fic for every fandom, so do whichever you prefer! For art, I really enjoy a wide variety of styles, from sketches to watercolors to digital pieces. I love bright, saturated colors if you decide to work in color, but I also love greyscale and black and white. I think most of my fic prompts will work for art too, but if you don’t see anything you like, feel free to do your own thing. :)
Dislikes (Do Not Want):
Character death or maiming. (For SSSS, this includes any requested characters getting infected with the Rash, though Prologue characters worrying that they’ve been infected is fine. More on this in that section.) Violence beyond what is canon-typical. Abusive relationships. Sexual violence of any kind. Explicit sex (allusions to sex or situations that get kind of steamy are okay, just...keep it teen rated or lower, please). It’s also probably best to avoid AUs (unless otherwise specified) or unrequested crossovers.
Please do not include romantic pairings with canon characters other than the ones I’ve requested, with the exception of canon relationships like Torbjörn/Siv or the Prologue Hotakainen couples. I’ll try to mention other pairings I enjoy in each fandom, but please keep them in the background - this exchange is all about the ladies, so the guys can have the spotlight some other time!
Now, on to the fandoms!
A Redtail’s Dream
( Stand Still Stay Silent )
Requested Characters/Groups: Group: Jonna Kuikka & Oona Kuikka; Group: Jonna Kuikka & Riikka Skärsholm; Paju Kinnunen; Oona Kuikka
Jonna & Oona: Sister shenanigans! I love the Kuikka family, so getting to read something that focuses on its two female members would be a delight. I’d love to see how the two of them relate to each other over the years, as Oona grows up and Jonna becomes more of an adult. What is it like to have such an age gap? Does Jonna help Oona through her first broken heart...or the first time she breaks someone’s nose? Or, since we see that the twins tend to be a bit immature, does Oona end up bossing Jonna around instead?
Jonna/Riikka: I prefer these two as a romantic pairing, though if you want to stick to friendship that’s okay too. I think these two are really cute together! Jonna is a bit of a prankster, and Riikka seems like a total sweetheart. It seems like they’ve known each other for a long time (like everyone else in their town) so how did they go from being friends to dating? How do they make their relationship work even though they both have family obligations that probably keep them pretty busy? Any kind of fluffy, sweet moments would be nice too - a first date, a night on the town, going to a drive-in movie (do they have those in Finland?) and cuddling in Riikka’s car.
Paju: She is FIERCE and determined and the kind of person who makes sure things get done, and I love her! I would love to see something with her planning an event and having to deal with all kinds of things going wrong (because let’s face it, several of her friends are pranksters or just plain lazy). I’d also be curious to see her take on the sort of magical things that happen in the comic - would she notice them and be determined to get to the source? Or would she dismiss everything as a crazy dream?
Oona: She’s only a child in canon, but I feel like there’s so much potential for her to grow up into someone fascinating. ESPECIALLY if there’s a crossover with SSSS, so she comes of age during the onset of the rash and is part of the first group of people to figure out how the new world works. Even if you don’t go that route, I’d love to see how she relates to her family, what it’s like for her living in a small town like Hokanniemi, and if she has any magical encounters of her own along the way.
Other aRTD ships: I’m okay with background mentions of Hannu/Ville (post-canon) or Hannu/Joona (pre-canon) or Hannu/Paju (pre-canon).
Stand Still Stay Silent
Requested Characters/Groups: Signe Sørensen; Hildur Bjarnadóttir; Group: Tuuri Hotakainen & Sigrun Eide; Group: Sigrun Eide & Solveig Eide; Group: Aino Hotakainen & Ensi Hotakainen; Group: Agneta & Sigrun Eide; Group: Sigrun Larsen & Ingrid Pedersen
Signe: I love this snarky lady to pieces! It’d be cool to either see glimpses of her life before the Rash (why did she get fired all those times? What kinds of jobs did she have?) or how she copes with being stuck on Bornholm. Her relationship with Michael delights me, too, so I wouldn’t mind if that was in there.
Sigrun L & or / Ingrid: I don’t really ship these two on a permanent basis (because, well, we know that in Y90 Sigrun Eide and Trond Andersen exist, and the family tree makes it clear they were both married to their respective men). But I can totally see the two of them having a relationship at some point prior to that - a friends-to-lovers thing, growing closer due to shared danger once the Rash hits. Or, even without the shippy component, the way their friendship grows and changes through the first years of the Rash and all the trouble that comes with it. Learning to fight trolls, learning to survive in a world without wifi; they can get through it together!
Aino & Ensi: I cannot imagine giving birth and raising a baby on a houseboat while the world is dying around you, so I am convinced that Aino is totally hardcore and deserves all the fics! I’d love to see Ensi growing up, making the transition from childhood to adulthood. And since we know Ensi is a mage, I’d be interested to see how that develops, and what Aino thinks about it. I also wonder what kind of education the adult Hotakainens would see fit to pass on to Ensi, since they grew up in a world that is totally different from hers. Does she learn about the outside world, other languages and cultures? Or are there all kinds of gaps, misinformation passed along because the adults can’t quite remember and they don’t have a lot of resources? Give me 12-year-old Ensi who knows the forest like the back of her hand and all the words to Bohemian Rhapsody, but thinks America is a myth because she’s never seen a map that went beyond Finland’s borders.
Hildur: Okay, I’ll admit I totally picked her based on my headcanon that she secretly writes romance novels about her husband Ragnar, aka Reynir’s Hot Viking Shepherd ancestor. But anything you want to do with her is fine! It’d be cool to see what life on the sheep farm is like, how she ended up there etc.
Sigrun/Tuuri: Again, I really enjoy shippy stuff with the two of them, but if you want to go gen that’s okay too. I love how they have a shared enthusiasm for adventure despite having completely different backgrounds. And I can definitely see Tuuri having a crush on Sigrun during the mission (“You’re so tall!”) and Sigrun growing steadily more impressed with Tuuri’s competence as time goes on. One note: while I enjoy hurt/comfort, and could see these two having some sweet H/C moments, I’m really freaking out about Tuuri’s possible rash infection and Sigrun’s infected scratches. So...I’d really prefer if those were glossed over. You can go canon-divergent, where Tuuri never gets scratched, or some kind of post-canon thing where everything with the expedition has worked out.
Sigrun & Solveig: Mother-daughter bonding by killing trolls? YES PLEASE. I imagine Sigrun was a handful when she was growing up, but given that both of her parents are generals, I’m sure Solveig has plenty of tricks up her sleeve for dealing with that. And I love the idea of Sigrun and Solveig fighting alongside each other, either when Sigrun is just starting her training or when she’s an adult. Some quiet moments might be nice too, maybe some kind of activity they like to do in the winter when there’s less troll activity.
Sigrun/Agneta: Yeah, I’m officially on the Signeta train (pun absolutely intended). This is the best kind of rarepair - two ladies who have never met in canon, but whose hypothetical meeting would be totally awesome! I can see them meeting somehow in the course of their respective jobs (possibly Sigrun has to take the train somewhere) and hitting it off - or not hitting it off right away, but growing on each other. I also like the thought of the two of them going back to one of their homes and having to deal with cultural differences. Straight-laced, rule-following train lady being dropped in the midst of Norwegian Viking culture - it would be pretty great.
Other SSSS Ships: As I said before, I’m okay with any of the canon ships happening in the background. I also ship Emil/Lalli, Reynir/Tuuri (in the event that it isn’t a Sigrun/Tuuri fic) and either Reynir/Onni or Bjarni/Onni.
Yuri!!! On Ice
Requested Characters/Groups: Group: Mila Babicheva & Sara Crispino; Group: Katsuki Mari & Okukawa Minako; Katsuki Mari
Mila/Sara: Not gonna lie, I ship these two a lot just because they’re both awesome and are seen sitting together for like...5 seconds in that one episode, haha! But really, I think they’d have a lot to bond over, with having the same career and also dealing with the drama that surrounds their male teammates. I’d love it if they two of them could get away for some fun in the off-time around a competition, or maybe visiting each other during the off-season. Social media interactions would be fun too! Plus, since they’re competitors, it would be neat to see some friendly rivalry between them, each challenging the other to do better.
(Also, a tiny part of me is incredibly amused by the thought of Sara dating a girl after her brother gets so protective any time a guy goes near her. Not something I want as the focus of a fic, but it would definitely be a fun detail to add in).
Mari & or / Minako: I LOVE that these two come to the Grand Prix Final to support Yuuri and gush over the other skaters. I would be thrilled with a fic from their perspective that shows those events, or even just a story about the things they get up to in Barcelona while the show is focusing on other things. Honestly I’m fine with either shippy or non-shippy, feel free to do what you want!
Mari: My appreciation for Mari has grown steadily, and I just really want there to be more art or fic about her! What has she been doing while Yuuri was away? What does she do for fun? I sort of get the impression she keeps calm and steady in the midst of all the drama, so it would be nice to see her doing that...or maybe, having a moment when she needs a little support herself.
Other Ships: Again, these should mostly be in the background, but I’m very fond of Victor/Yuuri, Otabek/Yuri, Leo/Guang Hong, and pre-canon Phichit/Yuuri.
Anyway, I think that’s it! If you have any questions, anonymous comments are enabled, or you can send me anonymous asks at @worldsentwined
