Dear Creator,

First, thank you for signing up and for writing or drawing something for me! Before anything else, I want you to know that whatever you make, I'll be delighted to receive it. (This is also true for anyone kind enough to treat me!) I'm open to all ratings, all genres, all verb tenses and narrative persons, most kinks, and all art styles. I don't need a happy ending, although I'll be rooting for these ladies to pull through. If you play to your strengths and write or draw something that makes you happy, I guarantee that I'll love it. =D

If you're interested in making something tailored to my interests, here are a few storytelling themes I love: Worldbuilding, Culture Clash, Soldiers in Peacetime, Magic Battles, Trust and Faith as Bravery, Ensemble Pieces, Class Consciousness, Margins Writing Back to the Center, Documents and Epistles, Multilingual Characters, Polymaths, Irreconcilable Moral Choices, Masochistic Idealists, Beautiful Monsters, Wanting the Thing and Deciding Not to Take It, the Long Road Home, and the Long Road to Redemption.

Here are a few artistic themes I love: Bold Lines, Art Nouveau Hair, Circular Compositions, Dramatic Lighting, That Tarot Thing Everyone Did after Dragon Age: Inquisition Came Out, Limited Palettes, and Touches of Gold.

The only thing that I'd prefer you NOT write me is dubious or coerced consent (e.g., 'I didn't hear a no' or 'That "no" didn't sound very convincing'). I do not enjoy reading dubious or coerced consent, and I'd prefer not to have it in what you create for me.

Prompts are below!

Original Work, Orc/Human Warrior )

Original Work, Dragon/Knight )

Craft Sequence – Max Gladstone, Seril/Tara Abernathy, Tara Abernathy/Elayne Kevarian )

Kalevala – Elias Lönnrot, Any pairing )

Overwatch, Ana Amari/Angela 'Mercy' Ziegler )

- Gil

Side note: Love to the kind artist or writer who's receiving my prompts!

but they want me to remember

Why do we measure people's capacity
To love by how well they love their progeny?

That kind of love is easy. Encoded.
Any lion can be devoted

To its cubs. Any insect, be it prey
Or predator, worships its own DNA.

Like the wolf, elephant, bear, and bees,
We humans are programmed to love what we conceive... )

carthaginians: ([sw] the force is with me)

Some days we can see Venus in mid-afternoon. Then at night, stars
separated by billions of miles, light travelling years

to die in the back of an eye.

Is there a vocabulary for this—one to make dailiness amplify
and not diminish wonder?

I have been so careless with the words I already have.

I don’t remember how to say home
in my first language, or lonely, or light.

I remember only
delam barat tang shodeh, I miss you,

and shab bekheir, goodnight.

How is school going, Kaveh-joon?
Delam barat tang shodeh.

Are you still drinking?
Shab bekheir.

For so long every step I’ve taken
has been from one tongue to another.

To order the world:
I need, you need, he/she/it needs.

The rest, left to a hungry jackal
in the back of my brain.

Right now our moon looks like a pale cabbage rose.
Delam barat tang shodeh.

We are forever folding into the night.
Shab bekheir.
