Fandom: Farseer Trilogy - Robin Hobb
Tags Chivalry Farseer
I wonder so much about Chivalry for someone we never actually see onscreen. Chivalry and Verity, accidentally enchanting Galen (what had happened before to make that even a possibility?) Chivalry and Burrich and Burrich's incredible loyalty - did that come about due to similar use of the Skill and if not how did the discussion about being King's Man come about? Who is this man and is he as good as Verity portrays him as or is that a younger brother and a bit of hero worship talking?
I'm not looking for evil!Chivalry here so much as I am flawed!Chivalry. I want to know about the guy who accidentally mind-whammied Galen, who everyone thought of as incredibly upright while he cheated on his wife. (Or did he? Is there any chance Fitz wasn't his and he's covering for him?) I tend to head-canon that he also mind-whammied Burrich, possibly by accident, at some point which is why to the end of his life Burrich is still looking after his descendants - you can go with that theory or ignore it. You could do him trying to repair his marriage or deciding to abdicate or brotherly moments with Verity (and awkward attempts to relate to young Regal and his mother? Oh hey, maybe gender switched Snow White! ;-) )
I'm not really looking for tender fatherly moments or indeed Fitz appearing at all in this, thanks!

Tags: Gorynel Desse
This is totally my year for minor characters, presumably if you've ended up with me you're okay with that!
Gorynel Desse! I vaguely ship him with Falundir and also with Granon Mikleine (it's not like he ever showed any signs of limiting himself romantically), so there's that, but there's also so much more. Realising that they'd lost and needed a box to store the Captal's Bequest in. Realising what Auvry was; did he always know he was a Malaressi? Did he think he was redeemable? Finding out what happened to Falundir - maybe knowing in advance what Falundir was planning and being unable to stop it. Getting Falundir out - how did he pull that off? The kid rescuing service for kids who had mild congenital deformaties - did he have any kids affected by it? Is that how it started? Rescuing Collan.
I'd prefer not to have him, y'know, dead and stuck in Cailet's head for this please!
I think I've really said most of what I wanted to say in my sign-up here! There's like, 500 stories you could write and they would all be fascinating. Have fun!

Fandom: The Chronicles of Chrestomanci - Diana Wynne Jones
Tags Mordecai Roberts | Tacroy The Dright (Chrestomanci)
Tacroy is my favourite character to never get his own book. Five minutes before the end of the book and we're suddenly on "oh, by the way, someone else owns my soul" and we're visiting someone who has him so squashed he won't even stand up and then it's over and WTF, COME BACK, I WANT THE REST OF THE STORY.
How did he get to find out that he belonged to Seven? What did they even do to him? Are there long term implications to Christopher claiming him as his man - does that mean something? Did he think working at the Castle and betraying them would be easy?
I know I have the Dright as a requested character, but if you want a fic just with Tacroy dealing with the after-effects of the Dright rather than him appearing directly that would be fine.
If you want to go dark with this that would be totally fine also! I would prefer to avoid fluff with this request but with Tacroy what I mostly want is just more!

Tags: Thomas Lynn
"Kidnapped by fairies" is totally a thing for me, and that point where Polly realises "Oh, he was YOUNG!" just sends delightful shivers down by my back. Give me him getting seduced by Laurie, him realising he's in trouble and being unable to back up, him trying to protect everyone else in the world and being drawn to Polly and ignoring the whispers that it's dangerous. As dark as you like, noncon, dubcon and underage would all be fine for this prompt.
Not really looking for Tom/Polly please!
Again I think I said most of what I wanted to say here! I think the only thing I missed what the possibility of him interacting with Seb and knowing that one of the two of them is doomed or seeing Laurel catch Leslie and wanting to warn him. Go dark, go sad, no happy ending required!

Fandom: The Tiffany Aching Series - Terry Pratchett
Tags Rob Anybody (Tiffany Aching) Jeannie (Tiffany Aching) Summary
I fell for Jeannie/Rob at that moment in I Shall Wear Midnight, the one where they get back and they're digging and suddenly this funny little man who does whatever Jeannie tells him and is a bit hen-pecked is deadly serious. I love that, I love that Jeannie is clearly the one in charge here but that Rob is also clearly deeply in love with her. Anything showing that would be awesome.
I love these two. As I said in my prompt my brain just kinda assumed Rob Anybody was married to Jeannie because that was what was in the rules and then there's just that moment in "I Shall Wear Midnight" and my brain goes "Oh god, yes, I ship it!"
Keep making me ship it, please!
