I am a smutswap
virgin, if you will, but I'm really excited to be taking part this year! Trust me, I'm easy to please - (why does it feel like everything I type for this letter has a double meaning?) - fandoms I love, characters I love, kinks I love... It's going to be good! :D
I don't really have many set in stone DNWs because anything can be good in the right context, you know? So I've thought about this quite a lot but the only things I came up with to DNW were scat / watersports, and a focus on spitting. Like, a mention of spitting is fine but focusing on it just makes me kind of shudder and want to look away. Other than that, feel free to go wild.
Instead, I want to talk about the things that are always absolute winners for me:
- Praise Kink.
- Dirty Talk.
- Orgasm Control / Edging.
- Frottage. (Especially the frantic 'can't wait any longer' variety.)
- Neck kissing / sucking / biting.
I've tried to give specific prompts for the other kinks I've gone with, but these are the ones that are bullet proof. I also adore
stock romance tropes like fake dating, didn't know we were dating, identity porn, and general miscommunication. No trope is a trope too far for me.
For more of what kind of stuff I'm into / typical exchange stalking, my fandom presence is spread across here (Dreamwidth), Tumblr
, and Ao3 where my username is starrrz
On to the requests; they're all for both fic and art:
Gotham (Harvey Bullock / Jim Gordon)
Beard Kink, Desperate Arousal / Sexual Frustration, Dirty Talk, Ear Kink, Fantasizing, First Time with a Guy, Frottage, Hair-pulling, Insecurity, Masturbation, Neck Kissing, Neediness to Please, Orgasm Control / Edging, Overstimulation, Praise Kink, Rimming, Small Penis, Talked to Orgasm, Undercover as a Couple, Uniform Kink.
I'm really loving Gotham right now - it puts me in mind of a darker version of the classic 60s Batman series, it's so kitsch and OTT!
Jim and Harvey hit just about every 'friends to lovers' feel I've ever had and then some. Jim is so dour, so miserable, but no matter how self-destructive he's being, Harvey's there for him. Can make him smile, and even if Jim doesn't act on a word of it, he will at least listen to what Harvey has to say about it. On the flipside, Jim has given Harvey back his sense of purpose and the loyalty that binds them together is just beautiful. I totally buy into the idea that Harvey's confidence is largely bluff and bluster, and he can't really believe that Jim could want to be with him
. Jim, of course, is stubborn enough to eventually prove otherwise!Prompt Ideas:
Uniform Kink. Harvey loves to see Jim in uniform - luckily for him Jim has plenty to choose from (Arkham, traffic cop, military dress, etc...) Or the other way around, with the sight of Harvey in his fancy dress uniform (or even that paramedic uniform he used to bust Jim out of Blackgate) just does all kinds of things to him.☆
Beard Kink / Hair Pulling. What it says on the tin, really. Jim getting all hot under the collar over all that hair is A++++.☆
Ear Kink. I totally blame this on all the awesome shippy fanart out there. (Eg. HERE
.) Kissing, nibbling, licking, sucking... it's all good.☆
Undercover as a Couple. There can never be enough of this in the world. Maybe Jim's about to blow their cover so Harvey has to take action, or perhaps Harvey sees this as the only chance he'll ever get to know what it's like to be with Jim and determines to make the most of it. (Mutual pining is always a win in these scenarios!)☆
Insecurity. Harvey being insecure while Jim is just desperately, embarrassingly into everything about him is my happy place for this ship.☆
Small Penis. I saw this in the tagset and had to request it! I have such a thing for when a guy is self-concious and hung up on how well he's, well, hung, and has been humiliated in the past over it by an ex or in locker room jibes. They're embarrassed to get naked with their new partner... but the partner just reassures them that it makes absolutely no difference to how into them they are. <3 Jim seems the obvious choice, but I've no set preference here!☆
First Time with a Guy. I love the idea that Jim is kind of clueless when it comes to being with another guy, either because he was too afraid to admit he could be interested, or just because he's never had chance. (Jim Gordon is not the type to cheat, Batman: Year One
be damned.) Harvey is more than happy to show him how it all works. (Or vice versa. I am definintely down for that.)☆
Dirty Talk, etc. Harvey is clearly the more experienced in this and takes great pride in his ability to get Jim worked up and embarrassed in public places. But maybe Jim surprises him occasionally with the things his mouth can do...☆
Neediness to Please. At work Jim rarely if ever does what Harvey says he should, in the bedroom it's a totally different story. Supergirl (Clark Kent / Jimmy Olsen)
Fantasizing, First Time, Frottage, Friends to Lovers, Identity Porn, Intercrural Sex, Licking Over Underwear, Massage, Neck Kissing, Nipple / Breast Sucking, Oral Sex, Overstimulation, Praise Kink, Rimming, Sex Pollen, Self-Sacrifice / Enduring Rape to Protect Friend / Lover / Family, Sharing Body Heat, Suit Kink, Tenderness, Wet Dream.
I am a long time Clark / Jimmy fan - I mean, in Olsen's own comic we even get to see the shrine to Superman he keeps in his bedroom. That's a serious crush, right there! Supergirl is one of my favourite shows right now, and Clark coming to help Kara out just made me so happy. In just a couple of episodes this version of Clark totally won my heart. I love how sweet and wholesome he is, just like the show itself really, and how earnest he is about everything. Jimmy getting to step out of Superman's shadow and shine on his own terms is also fab.Prompt Ideas:
Sex Pollen. Kryptonians have a strong reaction to *earth thing of choice*, luckily Jimmy is on hand to help Clark through it.☆
Fantasizing, Wet Dream, etc. Maybe they're afraid of messing up their friendship by confessing their feelings, perhaps one of them is still loved up with another. Whatever the reason, they spend an awful lot of time thinking about each other...☆
Sharing Body Heat. It's colder than Jimmy expected out at Clark's super secret fortress - Clark does his best to warm him up.☆
Self-Sacrifice / Enduring Rape to Protect Friend / Lover / Family. I saw this in the tag set and it seemed very relevant to my interests! They both seem the type who would sacrifice a lot to protect others, and it throws up all sorts of related scenarios along with the obvious hurt/comfort, like unwilling arousal (maybe the other is forced to watch?) and general shame and angsting.☆
Identity Porn. Jimmy didn't always know about Clark's double identity. Maybe he felt guilty about reacting to Superman the same way as he did Clark, or perhaps he told Clark what he would love to have Superman to do to him. Or, it could be the other way around - Clark doesn't know that Guardian is Jimmy. ☆
Suit Kink. Most people are only interested in Clark when he's wearing the cape. Jimmy prefers to see him in suit and tie.☆
Massage. Being Guardian takes its toll - Clark wants to lend a helping hand or two.Southland (John Cooper / Ben Sherman)
Begging, Body Worship, Coming in Pants, Coming Untouched, Desperate Arousal/Sexual Frustration, Dirty Talk, First Time with a Guy, Frottage, Masturbation, Neck Kissing, Neediness to Please, Orgasm Control/Edging, Orgasm Denial, Overstimulation, Power Imbalance, Praise Kink, Rimming, Sex Toys Under Clothing, Small Penis, Talked to Orgasm.
I completely missed this the first time around, but I'm glad I found the show eventually! I love police procedurals (and all related genres), especially when there is a lot of focus on the interpersonal relationships. I'm a particular fan of S1 and S2 - which probably have the least obstacles to filthy Cooper/Sherman smut, after all - but I've no objection to fic set at any point.
What I really like about the idea of Cooper/Sherman is how unequal
it is. Cooper is physically bigger, a superior rank, older, more experienced, etc. Sherman's kind of in awe, even as he pushes against Cooper's authority, wanting the other man to take notice of him. Cooper being reluctant at first, believing that he just shouldn't go there - he's in a position of authority, he's too old, Sherman can't possibly know his mind, etc - makes it even better, especially when Sherman does his best to prove to Cooper that he's completely serious. Prompt Ideas:
Dirty Talk, Orgasm Denial, etc. John needs to ensure Ben can work well under pressure. Getting him worked up (and up and up) throughout the day and still demanding he be the model professional is way more fun than the methods laid out in the handbook. By the end of shift Ben is a desperate mess - just the way John likes him.☆
Sex Toys Under Clothing. Another tool in John's arsenal when it comes to the complete wrecking of Ben Sherman.☆
Talked to Orgasm / Coming Untouched. If it's in uniform, I'll love you forever! (Seriously, those uniforms. I've no idea what the patches and shiny things all over it stand for, but I know that I like them.)☆
Small Penis. I saw this in the tagset and had to request it! I have such a thing for when a guy is self-concious and hung up on how well he's, well, hung, and has been humiliated in the past over it by an ex or in locker room jibes. They're embarrassed to get naked with their new partner... but the partner just reassures them that it makes absolutely no difference to how into them they are. <3 Ben seems the obvious candidate in this instance, but I wouldn't say no to John + body issues.☆
Power Balance / Overstimulation. Ben is always eager to please, and even when he isn't sure he can actually take it he trusts John enough to let him do it anyway.☆
Begging. Ben on his knees. That is all.☆
First Time with a Guy. Ben worries that John will lose interest if he finds out that he's never done anything with a guy before - he could not be more wrong. John wouldn't be working as a training officer if he begrudged needing to show someone how things work, after all.
Gotham (Oswald Cobblepot / Jim Gordon)
Blackmail / Sexual Coercion, Body Worship, Enthusiastic Consent, First Time, First Time with a Guy, Frottage, Insecurity, Loss of Virginity, Masturbation, Neck Kissing, Oral Sex, Possessive Jealousy, Praise Kink, Rimming, Sex Tears / Crying During Sex, Shame in Sexual Desires, Unexpected Tenderness, Uniform Kink, Virginity Kink, Wet Dream.
Another Gotham request! I have really enjoyed the sense of character development with each of these two - Oswald emerging from the shadows to rule instead of be ruled by the darkness of Gotham's underworld, and Jim losing his way again and again as Gotham does its absolute best to break him.
The weird intensity of Jim and Oswald's relationship, right from the very beginning, drew me in completely. Oswald dreams of making people grovel at his feet yet, when it comes to Jim, all he seems to want to do is worship the ground he walks on. He can't hide how happy he is to catch a glimpse of Jim, nor how desperate he is for Jim to actually want
to see him in return. When he serenely takes the entire blame for Galavan's death, just to save Jim's reputation - gah, my heart! But what I really love is that in spite of how unlikely it seems, it's not all one way. Jim can't turn his back completely, can't stop caring, and even in the grip of a fever dream, Oswald is the person he considers to be most unambiguously on his side. Prompt Ideas:
Jim in uniform just does it for Oswald. Luckily he has a whole collection of them to choose from - traffic cop, army, Arkham guard, dress uniform... ☆
Enthusiastic Consent. Oswald doesn't want there to be any misunderstandings between them - and is loud
into the bargain.☆
Blackmail / Sexual Coercion. Oswald wants Jim and he's willing to play dirty to get him. Maybe Jim gets into the favour for a favour thing with Oswald. (Being naked makes all the difference!)☆
Possessive Jealousy. Canon makes it crystal clear that Oswald does not like sharing. Jim can live with that so long as it stays in the bedroom. ☆
Oswald and virginity kink is just A++++. Perhaps he seeks Jim out and asks him to take his virginty because he knows Jim will do his best to make it enjoyable, or maybe Jim finds out that he's a virgin and can't stop thinking about it. Sex Tears are also very welcome.☆
First Time with a Guy. Whether Oswald has any experience or not, it might be Jim's first time with another man. Cue lots of being frustratingly over careful and performance anxiety.DC Cinematic Universe (Bruce Wayne/Alfred Pennyworth)
Age Difference, Anal Fingering, Body Worship, Fantasizing, Identity Porn, Masturbation, Masturbation Interruptus, Neediness to Please, Oral Sex, Orgasm Control / Edging, Praise Kink, Rimming, Secret Relationships / Forbidden Relationships, Shame in Sexual Desires, Spanking, Talked to Orgasm, Voyeurism, Wet Dream.
The idea of Bruce/Alfred has long intrigued me, and this film really highlighted its potential for me. I love the idea that Bruce has been into Alfred since, well, forever. Crushing on him as an awkward teen, maybe, while Alfred tactfully pretended he didn't notice. Even as Bruce got older and the idea wasn't anywhere near as off-putting as Alfred knows
it ought to be. By the time we reach movie canon it's been there, simmering just beneath the surface, for what feels like forever. Or, maybe they've already taken the plunge and accepted that they are too closely bound to each other to continue ignoring it...Prompt Ideas:
Bruce is always getting himself into trouble - Alfred has given up trying to instil some sense of self-preservation into him. Instead he makes sure he is always there to pick up the pieces afterwards.☆
Shame in Sexual Desires, Secret Relationships / Forbidden Relationships, etc. Give me all that pseudo-incest angst!☆
Talked to Orgasm. There's nothing wrong with what they're doing so long as they never touch each other...☆
Voyeurism. Bruce knows he shouldn't be such a creeper, but he can't stop watching Alfred in the shower / his room / etc, etc.☆
Age Difference. Bruce likes a man with experience.☆
Fantasizing, Masturbation, etc. Being so close to someone you can't have is perfect agony. ☆
Spanking. Bruce is never too old to be put over Alfred's knee.☆
Identity Porn. Sex chatlines, dating sites, all the usual suspects. They both think they can't have the other so go looking elsewhere, not realising that they're actually talking to each other the whole time. (Or maybe one of them realises, but they just can't help themselves.)
