Thanks for signing up to write for me! If you'd find it helpful, I have a fairly exhaustive general kinks and squicks post that you can check out. I'm open to either triangles or V-relationships in all of my requested fandoms; I've noted below which character I'd prefer to be the fulcrum of the vee, but if you have a seriously awesome story idea that runs counter to my preferences, then please go for it.


2Cellos - "Smooth Criminal" music video
"Luka"/"Stjepan"/Unnamed woman
(Quotation marks because those are the musicians' names rather than the characters, but I'm fine with the characters being called Stjepan and Luka. Couldn't find the actress's name, but pretty much any female Croatian name will work for that character. If you haven't seen the video yet (and if you haven't, you should give it a try; it's awesome!), here's the link for the "Smooth Criminal" music video.)

There are a few ways that the action of the music video could be read; please explore your favorite in fic! A happy, poly ending in which the men work out their jealousy and anger and the woman stops being disgusted with the two of them would be especially awesome, but you can leave it angsty if that's your preference.

I don't really have anything to add to this request. Just...interpret the music video through fic, and I'll be ecstatic!


Bend It Like Beckham
Jess Bhamra/Joe/Jules Paxton
Post-movie fic in which Jess and Jules have football and each other (either platonically or romantically), and then they acquire Joe, too.

There are a lot of things I love about this movie: the passion the girls have for sport; their ability to grow past their jealousy because their romantic interest in Joe isn't more important than their friendship and their shared commitment to football; the way their parents try so hard to support their daughters...and sometimes fail to do so, but then just keep trying; their shared happy ending that is really just a beginning for both of them. It's pretty obvious from the above that I love Jess and Jules best, but I do really like Joe, too! And, more importantly, Jess and Jules love him, and I'm rather invested in their getting the things they want in life. If you're writing a vee, then I'd like Jess as the fulcrum character.


Inception
Arthur/Eames/Yusuf
Top!Arthur and bottom!Eames, please. If you're not including explicit sex in the story, then just something where all three of them are BAMFs is very welcome.

This is the one fandom I've requested in which I think I'd actively prefer a vee rather than a threesome, since I'm not sure how Arthur/Yusuf would work. Don't take that as discouragement, though, if you'd rather write a threesome; I'm very open to persuasion!

If you'd like some plot ideas, then anything where the three of them work as a team after Dom goes back to his kids and Saito to running his company would be awesome. (You can throw Ariadne into their new team as well, and/or include original characters in your fic.) Or a story in which Yusuf develops a new somnacin compound could be interesting: maybe one that allows people in dreamwork to dream naturally again, or something that improves their ability to perform extractions and/or manipulate dreams. Or, if you don't want to write anything plotty, then domestic fluff is just fine by me.


The Social Network
Erica Albright/Eduardo Saverin/Mark Zuckerberg
Post-movie fix-it fic would be excellent. Eduardo and Erica are my two favorite characters, so I'm particularly invested in seeing them happy and content.

I love how sharp Erica is and how quietly devoted Eduardo is. Mark I'm a bit less enamored of, but I think there's plenty of room for him to grow. I'd prefer Eduardo as the fulcrum if you're writing a vee.


Thanks again, and I hope you have fun writing your story and are happy with and proud of the result!
