|Phichit Chulanont/Christophe Giacometti|General Tropes I like: general fluffiness; pining; first meetings/first kisses; soulmate AUs; anything to do with music/musicians/playlists is the bae; anything funny; i love any and all AUs, especially ones to do with magical realism e.g. daemon AUs, magic, superpowers etc. (Of all these pairings, MilaSara is probably my fave) Feel free to write whatever you like with any of these pairings if you already have ideas; the tropes are just suggestions. <3
DNW: smut beyond a quick scene/mention of it if necessary, e.g. a character remembers briefly 'what happened last night' or mentions of sexual desire, but no PWP or really detailed smut scenes please.

|Katsuki Yuuri/Lee Seung Gil||Christophe Giacometti/Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov||Victor Nikiforov/Victor Nikiforov||Lee Seung Gil/Nishigori Takeshi|I don't necessarily ship all the ships I've requested so I'm curious as to what a writer can do to make the ship plausible. Like something in their personality that makes them compatible with a character that we didn't consider before. That's why rare ships are fun for me. So I'll outline some general ideas and you can run with it. Some general ideas:
Christophe Giacometti is my fandom bicycle. Go as porny as you like. I love how flirtatous and sassy he is, but I think he's a gentleman deep down so he's gonna be good to whoever he's paired up with. Pre-canon friendship fics with either Yuuri and Victor is welcome where we learn things about the characters we don't see in canon.
Lee Seung Gil is a character I don't know a lot about but I would want more shippy fic with him. He's so serious and calculating and I think it would be amusing if someone like Christophe or Phichit broke that shell of his. And it's awful that he looked so devastated when he didn't get into the Grand Prix final and it suggests there's something more vulnerable under all that coldness and that makes him interesting. He's also hot so any porn is welcome. I love that he randomly kisses people while drunk so work that into any fic you want. I like the idea that Yuuri is a secret sex vixen underneath his calm, reserved exterior. So I'm good with a Yuuri who enjoys sex and isn't so anxious about it under the right circumstances. Or at least enjoys a lot of shameless flirting while drunk. I have never requested tentacles pairings before. I'm kind of excited. I like the ones that have that comical OMG-what is this thing touching me??! and the creature is single-minded in its aim to make the character oragasm as much as possible. Kinda like a organic mindless sex machine. So have fun with it. Victor/Victor: I always like the fics where Victor meets himself and is sorta like "Was I really like this? Oh god I was insufferable" but is fond/sympathetic at the same time. Porn or character piece, a bit of both. whatever comes to mind. Threesome fics: straight up porn. Do what you think is hot. Things I do like:
-I'm a sucker for a good banquet fic. Any banquet AUs are welcome
-fics centered on the awkward first approaches of dating. Are they interested in me? Will we get along? OMG, why didn't I realize they were so cute until now? Stuff like that.
-slowburn romance where characters gradually get to know each other and get comfortable with each other. They start out as friends and become something more.
Do Not Want:
--Scat/watersports, Major character death, homophobia, mpreg, a/b/o, Trans headcanons, rape (except for the tentacles pairings), kidfic, epithets (really annoying. Just pronouns and names are fine with me)
|Yuri Plisetsky/Kurosaki Hisoka (Yami no Matsuei)||Katsuki Yuuri/Detroit Hockey Team||Nishigori Yuuko & Yuri Plisetsky||Phichit Chulanont/Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov||Phichit Chulanont/Katsuki Yuuri|
|Phichit Chulanont/Yuri Plisetsky||Victor Nikiforov & Nikolai Plisetsky||Phichit Chulanont & Yuri Plisetsky|I am much more on the Phichit/Yuuri 'friends with benefits' train than the romance train. Though go crazy with the OT3 if you want. Phichit is so sweetly nice to people I'd love to see him alone with Yurio, who gets so delightfully thrown by people who are genuinely nice. Yuuko's encouragement of Yurio was one of my favorite things about YoI. Mostly I just enjoy Yurio liking people in spite of himself. I think Yuuri and the Red Wings (or whatever fictional hockey team you decide is in YoI Detroit) pretty much explains itself. I'm for enthusiastic consent. Or just some hilarious flirting if you don't want to write porn. Go crazy. Victor and Yurio's grandpa--they had to have met each other at some point! Do they get along? What do they think of each other? If anyone breaks up for these pairings to happen, I'd like the heartbreak to be over at the start of the story and for whoever to remain friends (so if you do futurefic with Yuuri/Phichit, everyone is still on good terms with Victor, that sort of thing). DNWs: No smut with anyone younger than Plisetsky is at the start of canon. No non-con/dubcon. No infidelity (open relationships are fine), no MPREG or a/b/o. I'd prefer no trans* headcanons for these characters. Don't kill Yurio or Grandpa Plisetsky (or anyone!) to get him to meet Hisoka, please. YoI is my happy place.
|Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky||Katsuki Yuuri/Yuri Plisetsky||Otabek Altin/Jean-Jacques Leroy||Phichit Chulanont/Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov|DNWs: 1st/2nd person POV, character death/major angst, cheating, a/b/o, mpreg, non-con (dubcon is ok), daddy-kink. Preferably no complete AUs, though canon "what-if"s, age reversal etc. are fine. Any rating of fic is fine with me, so go with whatever you feel is called for/are comfortable with. V/Y/Y: my absolute favourite, anything involving them being happy with each other is a++. But I'm always good to read pining Yurio/getting together, if it's all mutual and resolved at the end. Y/Y: I know this can be tricky to do without straying into cheating territory, but one-sided, or near the beginning of the series, or pre-V/Y/Y, even. I would be really interested in a Yuuri making the first move fic. O/JJ: I would love something going into why JJ seems so intimidated by Otabek, and the fact that they know each other and clearly have some kind of history. P/Y/V: What immediately comes to mind is Yuuri telling Victor that he and Phichit used to experiment together in Detroit, and Victor gets curious; Phichit is happy to demonstrate. But please feel totally free to do whatever you like with the ships. Thank you <3
