Yes please: People wearing their partner's clothes; when the characters' friends all know/assume they're dating for ages before they figure it out themselves; art where the characters have notably different silhouettes and/or a pronounced height difference; strong inks and bold colours; muscular arms; D/s themes (in fandoms with adult characters); double-dates in fandoms where I've requested more than one ship.
Specific ship/fandom prompts (all totally optional! just some ideas I have!) are mostly copied and pasted from my signup with the exception of Space Battle Lunchtime, which I just finished reading. If that isn't what we matched on, I encourage you to read it anyway because it's honestly the best comic I've read in years and I am in love.
( cut for length )
General: Any rating is fine for adult characters but please don't make anything sexual with characters under 16 or explicit with characters under 18. No non-con. Minimal violence in kids' cartoon fandoms. Thanks for making me something! Some prompts are more specific/detailed than others; it doesn't mean I like those fandoms more, I'll be happy to get anything for any of these requests!

Vid: Fight Song
Music: Rachel Platten
Fandom/Ship: Ladies Figure Skating, gen
Summary: I was all set to make an ice dance montage after Worlds and then the ladies event happened and I had about eleven simultaneous emotions and made this instead. Every one of the top-six women has so much to be proud of.
I made a Space Cases vid for elipie who requested either Cat/Suzee or Harlan/Radu-- Cat/Suzee turned out to be beyond my capabilities as a vidder (if you're unfamiliar with the show, they never appear on screen at the same time but are still the Formative F/F Ship of my heart) so after a couple false starts I ended up with this!
It was so nice to have an excuse to rewatch this show. It was horrible to be watching this show and not allowed to talk publicly about it because listen: I love this show. There might be at least one more Space Cases vid in me because I have more to say about this world and these characters. (Cat, Suzee, and Elmira kept trying to wiggle their ways into this vid. If I can ever find the right song to make an OT5 vid I will do that thing.)
Vid: Not Alone
Music: Britney Spears, Alien
Fandom/Ship: Space Cases, Radu/Harlan
Summary: The stars in your eyes look like home (take me home).
Vid: You And Me And Her
Fandom: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
Music: You And Your Friend, Snake River Conspiracy
Summary: I think I'm in love with you (and your friend).
Vid: Planetary [Go!]
Music: My Chemical Romance
Fandom: Death Race 2050 (2017)
Summary: Just don't let go.
Content notes: Death, blood, gore, car crashes, state-sponsored violence.
I watched this movie about a week ago and felt the immediate desperate must-vid-this-now pull of hyperfocus. It was everything I wanted from a Death Race 2000 remake. Thank you, Roger and Julie, for this gift.
And I made this:
Fandom: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1981 TV)
Music: Dance Apocalyptic, Janelle Monae
Summary: I need to know-- if the world says it's time to go, tell me, will you freak out?
I hadn't seen the TV series in years and years and it was an absolute joy to revisit as an adult! If you haven't seen it, or haven't seen it in a long time, I recommend it. I certainly appreciate TV Trillian more now than I did at thirteen or so-- She made no sense to me then, but as a woman with a graduate degree and no real career prospects, if someone offered me a job in my field but the catch was I had to dress like a SF pulp cover I'd jump at the chance now.
I also posted a recs list here on tumblr! Lots of great vids this year, including some I wish I had made.
Characters drawn with distinctive body shapes/facial features. Costume-swap/wearing your girlfriend’s clothes. Bodyswap, especially with characters from different species or with vastly different powersets. Fic where everyone around our ship already thinks they’re dating and they are the last to find out. Bondage & D/s themes, especially if the bigger/tougher/stronger/scarier character is submissive. Rivals-to-lovers. Bright colours for superhero stuff, deep blacks/heavy inks in horror and fantasy stuff. Supernatural themes. Awkward teenagers. Musician AUs. Crossovers between requested fandoms. Sad human x ghost or human x immortal love stories. Time travel (meeting their own past/future self or their partner’s). Athletic and superheroic characters drawn with muscle definition.
I tend to prefer stylized art to photorealism. I’m always impressed by people who do fannish crafting, so if you want to do that instead of drawing for an art gift that’s absolutely welcome!
If you want to interpret any characters here as trans or non binary that’s welcome (personally I read Cass Cain as agender and Cassie Sandsmark as a trans girl, but feel free to write or draw either of them without taking that into account). I’m happy to receive fic or art of any rating (see letter for some exceptions).
Nothing sexual with characters under 16, nothing explicit with characters under 18. No dub/non con. No unrequited pining except where indicated. No A/B/O. No stories where homophobia is the focus. This is a bit of a weird one but please don’t give any character a pet hamster.
I’m just spitballing out ideas here, pick any that seem interesting to you or do your own thing, no need to try and fit in everything, I just have a lot to say!
Fandom: St. Trinian's (2007), St. Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009)
Music: This Girl is Taking Bets, Thea Gilmore
Summary: She's a four-minute warning, she is hell to pay.
Content notes: Drug/alcohol use
About half of these shots have been sitting here in my brain for literal years, I'm glad that I now have the skills (and a good enough computer) to actually make the vid.
Frankenstein: or, the Modern Prometheus: Trends in Twentieth- and Early Twenty-First Century Illustrated Editions
( With heartfelt thanks to the librarians and other helpful people at Robarts Library, Toronto Reference Library, and the Merrill and Osborne collections. )
Fandom: Crimson Peak
Music: Our House, Marisa Berenson and the Muppet Orchestra
Summary: When you come to our house, we will have some fun.
Content notes: Blood, violence, death, sibling incest
My goal is to make a vid for every month this year. This being only the fifth of March, I'm well ahead of the game. (This was actually supposed to be my immediately-post-Festivids project but then the Carrie vid... happened to me.)
Title: What A Way To Make A Living
Music: 9 to 5, Dolly Parton
Fandom: Black Books
Summary: I swear sometimes that man is out to get me.
Made for GhostTownExit00 for Festivids 2015-2016
This was tons of fun to make! I try to pay attention to internal motion when I'm vidding and the show footage was very cooperative in that respect. In a helpful coincidence, the day I started working on this Black Books got put on Canadian netflix, so I had a lot of friends and family watching or re-watching the show who I could subject to my various drafts. None of them are likely to see this post but, just in case, thanks guys!
And then I dashed off a draft of a five-minute vid in three days, which I have now made as presentable as I feel I'm able.
Title: Stretched On Your Grave
Music: I Am Stretched On Your Grave (Apple-Bright Mix), Sinéad O'Connor
Sources: Carrie (1976, 2002, 2013), Carrie 2: The Rage
Summary: Sue, are you sure you aren't still trying to save a girl who died 20 years ago?
Warnings: Death, blood, suicide, bullying. Surprisingly little menstrual horror or abusive parents given the source material.

I’m always impressed by people who do fannish crafting, so if you want to do that rather than a drawing for an art gift that’s totally cool. I tend to prefer stylized art to photorealism. I’ve been on a Jack Kirby kick this summer, if want to have a Kirbyesque influence (or just draw some Kirby dots) in your art!
If you want to interpret any characters here as trans or nonbinary that's welcome (personally I read Cass Cain as agender and Cassie Sandsmark as a trans girl, but feel free to write or draw either of them without taking that into account). I'm happy to receive fic/art of any rating.
Dislikes: Dub-con, non-con, adult/teen pairings, sexual content with characters under 16, porn with characters under 18, unrequited pining except where indicated, A/B/O, stories all about homophobia/coming out (not that these things can’t exist in your work I’d just prefer them to not be the focus). This is a bit of a weird one but please don't give any characters a pet hamster.
