Thank you so much for attempting to create a fanwork for me! I'm sure I will love it anyways, but here are some details about what I like/dislike, in case you like to do your research.

First off, I would rather receive a work that the creator was enthusiastic about than one that fulfilled every detail of my request. These are guidelines meant to help you, not to cage you.

I am open to both plot-driven stories and character pieces. Plot with porn is fine and fun, but I am OK with stories without sex! I generally prefer lighthearted stories. That said, I love good angst - as long as it ends happily. No 'hurt' without 'comfort'. So no pain-filled death stories, pretty please. I love romantic stories, but I need realism even in my mush.

I like stories with: amnesia, action/adventure, alternative universes, banter, capture and rescue, competence, crossover, dominance and submission, the edge between civilization and the unknown, formation of friendship, history affecting the present, humour, hurt/comfort, longing, matchmakers, love or friendship expressed in atypical ways, moral ambiguity, attraction between opposites, outsider POV, people telling stories, people who have each other's backs, people who flat out like each other's company, people suffering stoically, power exchange, resolve, secret identity (or lack of it), strong and competent characters, sense memory, time travel, traveling.

Though it seems unlikely, if you have not yet given up on my rambling and want to research me more, I've told more about what I like here.

Seriously, if you go the AU route-- or just in general-- please don't worry too much about making everything fit exactly into canon. I am *not* going to be super-picky about what happened when, or which characters were doing what during whatever event.
I don't particularly like: mpreg, soul-bonding or "destiny" in terms of romance, excessive possessiveness and/or jealousy portrayed as healthy or romantic, "we're not gay we just love each other," first person narration, graphic violence, torture, deadfic, heavy illness (e.g. cancer or AIDS), rape/noncon, unrelenting angst, hardcore kink, self-harm, religion bashing, major public embarrassment, and/or female-character-bashing-- including dialogues like "Don't be such a girl," and so on.

Fandom 1: The Legend of the Sun Knight (Any)
About the canon: The Legend of Sun Knight is a completed 8-volume lighthearted fantasy light novel series. You can find the English translation of the first five volumes here:
What I like about the canon, and my suggestions:
  1. Ecilan Frost/Grisla Sun: I think it would be interesting to see Frost scheming and takes the initiative in the relationship. Or something about baking and food.
  2. Ecilan Frost/Lesus Judgment: I 'd like to see a fic that uses the trope "we're actually dating?"
  3. Grisla Sun/Lesus Judgment: I just like buddy pairing and would like to see what can prompt them to go romantic in their relationship.
  4. Grisla Sun/Roland Hell: Things I'll love to see: The true reason behind Roland staying on Earth is Sun though he doesn't know it . Roland being tempted by the darkness and Sun pulling him back to the bright side with his trust/love
  5. Lesus Judgment/Laica Metal: it's cute to read a reluctant sadist learning to accept his sadism/puppy-eyed masochist who tops from the bottom while worshiping Judgment outside the bedroom but please feel free to write your take on them.

Fandom 2: Sengoku Basara (Any)
About the canon: Sengoku Basara is a hack and slash game loosely based on the historical figures of of the Sengoku period and has been adapted into an anime series, which can be found with English subtitles online.
What I like about the canon, and my suggestions: In Sengoku Basara, Date Masamune is energetic, ambitious and confident young ruler of the Date Clan. However, he also has a quiet and thoughtful side outside the battleground and heed the counsel of his serious retainer Katakura Kojuro, who's a quiet, reliable and intelligent strategist. Date Masamune trusts Katakura Kojuro enough that Katakura Kojuro is called the Dragon's Right Eye. (Date Masamune lost his right eye when young due to disease and thus despised by his mother.) They have a great rapport with each other and there's a lot of hurt/comfort fodder between them. Katakura Kojuro vows to never let Date Masamune regret anything and only he can stop Date Masamune in a fury.

Ishida Mitsunari appears in Sengoku Basara 3 and is a determined avenger of his lord. He 's tragic in a sense that he's so driven by his revenge that he has nothing other than that. Ōtani Yoshitsugu is his friend and often takes command of the West Army for him. He's dying of leprosy, which causes him to be shunned and rejected by the others, and leads him to say that he wishes misery upon everyone (including himself) equally. However, Ōtani Yoshitsugu cares about Ishida Mitsunari deeply and protects him. There's a historical incident that at a tea party, after Ōtani Yoshitsugu drinks from a cup of tea, no other people drinks from it as customary except Ishida Mitsunari. Ōtani Yoshitsugu is touched. It's said to be one of the reasons he joined Ishida Mitsunari's cause.

Fandom 3: Shin Sangokumusou | Dynasty Warriors (Any)
About the canon: Dynasty Warriors is a hack and slash game loosely based on the Romance of Three Kingdoms.
What I like about the canon, and my suggestions: I really like the opportunity to go what-if for the history of the Three Kingdoms Period, my favourite Chinese historical period.
Cao Pi/Zhao Yun: I like this pairing for the potential of darkness and angst. Happy ending is not necessary. After I watch this:, I 'm curious what if Cao Pi gets interested in Zhao Yun and pursues him (for recruitment, for elimination, etc) and then the interest changes to be more romantic in nature. I 'm also intrigued by the potential of mind game and attraction from the opposite sides.

Sûn Cè/Zhôu Yú: I ship them because I like close friends with a common goal. Their personalities complement each other nicely too. So anything that tests and strengthens their bond is great. I also like the irony that they're dying young in the real history and please feel free to use it.

Cáo Câo/Guō Jiā: I guess I like the possibility to explore the power difference potential and how their intelligence play off against each other. How does Guo Jia gets Cao Cao's trust? What kind of mind game will they play? Anything that tests and strengthens their bond is great.

Gān Níng/Líng Tǒng: I think this pairing has the most dramatic angst potential as they change from enemies to friends and comrades in the game. So how and do they get over the past? Pile the hurt on them. Test them to the limit ad show me how they can try to get over it together
Mǎ Chāo/Zhào Yún: I think there's more potential to write lighthearted or fluffy fics for the pairings. So a fic that they work and fight together or hang out is all right. I won't say no to angst though.

Fandom 4: Hetalia: Axis Powers (Taiwan/Vietnam, Liechtenstein /Switzerland)
Taiwan/Vietnam: I think they are characters with great potentials. They can braid each other hair and be adorable together, bond on food and history or go for adventure together, You can write fics set in the historical period or current time. Fluff, angst, mystery, adventure... As long as there's a happy ending I'm good.

Liechtenstein /Switzerland: I think they are cute together, with Switzerland as the grumpy but caring big brother and Liechtenstein a cute and lovely younger sister. Fluff and angst are both all right to me. No explicit sex please.

Fandom 6: Hamlet
Claudius/Gertrude (Hamlet): What exactly is the nature of their relationship? Is it purely political? Is there real feeling behind it? I would like to see some desperation and conflicted feeling for this pairing.
Gertrude/Hamlet Sr.: I want to know Gertrude's side of story. What does she think of her first husband?
Hamlet/Horatio: Give me the angst. Give me the UST. What does Horatio think about the plot events?
Fandom 7: Highlander
Duncan MacLeod/Tessa Noel: I really love Tessa and want to know how their relationship begins. A slice-of-life story. Problems they need to overcome. Raising Riche
Joe Dawson/Duncan MacLeod: I love Joe and I think he's far from the harmless person depicted in fanfic. Tell me how they can begin. They working togther. A snippet of their life.
