Basics

If you're writing fic for me, I love you.

You'll notice I throw a lot of ideas out. They're options, so you know the sorts of things I enjoy, rather than everything that I will be fussed if you don't include in the fic. I'm not a fussy type.

Other General Info:

I like: Plot, horror, adventures, banter and dry humor, over the top AUs, gen, slash, het, any rating, interesting narrative voices and/or concepts.

I don't like: Main character death, gratuitous angst, character-bashing, introspective character pieces.


Mushishi (Ginko)

First off: I'm requesting Mushishi, Mononoke and Natsume because I would really love a crossover with one or more of these fandoms. I think they all make a lot of cool, psychedelic sense together.
(Matoba and Ginko bonding over eye-loss~)
 
Other than that, I'm just into this for the horror stories. I want Ginko to wander into danger, learn about cool mushi and solve a mystery. Make it as creepy and atmospheric as you can. I love creepy-pasta if you want to do something more modern. 
 
Types of horror I especially like: creeping unreality, body horror, the uncanny, humans-as-montstrous, psychological horror and isolation.
Types of horror I'm not a fan of: guro/gross-out, slasher
 
If you want to write pwp, feel free to write Ginko/Adashino or Ginko/mushi with Ginko getting overwhelmed.
 
I am a fan of haiku, renga, tanka and other Japanese poetry styles. If you too like these things, please feel free to incorporate such things.
 

Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume Takashi, Nyanko, Tanuma Kaname, Matoba Seiji)

First off: I'm requesting Mushishi, Mononoke and Natsume because I would really love a crossover with one or more of these fandoms. I think they all make a lot of cool, psychedelic sense together.
(Nyanko vs The Medicine Seller? Adashino having connections with Taki's grandfather's collection? Natsume's issues with treating ayakashi/yokai as mushi/bugs? The Medicine Seller's methods give Matoba a headache. Tanuma seeking out Ginko or The Medicine Seller to find a way to see yokai and support Natsume more.)
 
I do ship Natsume and Tanuma, and I would love to have some slow, sweet realizations of their relationship-- possibly with youkai interference, or some mortal danger. I would love both a first date, where they end up having to hide from some youkai, OR Natsume or Tanuma in mortal danger and they discover their mutual feelings over the course of the rescue.
 
If you want to REALLY indulge me, Natsume and Tanuma both being forced to pretend to dress up as gods (think the Moon-Splitting Festival episode, with Natsume in the Houzukigami kimono and mask) and, you know, have sex in order to keep the forest from dying or something. That or a darker universe where Natsume has given up on humans entirely, and become the head of the Night Parade of 100 Demons or something and then meets Tanuma or Matoba.
 
I enjoy adventures with demons and the series itself with it's caring and warm atmosphere. 
 


Mononoke (Any)

First off: I'm requesting Mushishi, Mononoke and Natsume because I would really love a crossover with one or more of these fandoms. I think they all make a lot of cool, psychedelic sense together.
(Ginko's nonchalance in dealing with the wild confidence of The Medicine Seller. Or bringing the Medicine Seller into Natsume's modern setting and seeing how he adapts or doesn't adapt.)
 
The things I like best about this series are the theatrical pacing, the hallucinogenic atmosphere-- like, it feels almost like a fever dream with this sense of being unwell and also fascinated. The deep, unfolding psychological horror, and the way the series doesn't flinch from awful events, but shows how they can cause lasting trauma in a twisted, wild way that not controllable.
 
When it comes to the main character, I think the thing that fascinates me most is his wild confidence. He's so different and he owns his difference so no one ever questions him.
 
Types of horror I especially like: creeping unreality, body horror, the uncanny, humans-as-monstrous, psychological horror and isolation.
Types of horror I'm not a fan of: guro/gross-out, slasher
 
I am a fan of haiku, renga, tanka and other Japanese poetry styles. If you too like these things, please feel free to incorporate such things. 
 

Pet Shop of Horrors (Lau Wu-fei, Count D)

First off: This isn't exactly like the others, in that it's not being requested BECAUSE of the crossover potential. I don't mind a crossover-- I think Pet Shop of Horrors would make an amazing Mononoke episode, and Wu-fei getting caught up in a duel between the Medicine Seller and D, or otherwise dealing with that sort of headache would be great.
 
BUT, I just ship them, okay.
 
Maybe this is just my deep and abiding love for organized-crime-types, but I love the idea that Wu-Fei is trying so hard to run this criminal empire and things keep slipping through his fingers because D decided to move in. If you want to go with a coda from the manga, you could do something silly like him eating super-fertility eggs that D accidentally supplied a baker with and getting himself pregnant (I don't normally like mpreg, but I kind of love the idea of Wu-Fei just having to deal with something totally ricockulous because he keeps having to spend time with D).  

Or there's always another assassination attempt, or some other mafia-like plot. But with added ~magic~ craziness because D has a vested interest in keeping Wu-Fei alive.
