daiya exchange dear author letter

hello! i'm mel, you can find me at [tumblr.com profile] cheetahing and [archiveofourown.org profile] revolving. there's a reference to manga events in one of the ship rundowns but no actual spoilers.

please note that i use ship names generically! the order names are in don't matter.

  • i'm generally not into crack fic! shenanigans are ok if they aren't over the top/unrealistic.
  • in terms of canonverse fic, i tend to prefer character studies, quiet/intimate moments, and characters trying to figure their ish out. i do not enjoy characters behaving in ways that would actually have pretty huge reprecussions for them and their entire teams/schools if caught; high school baseball in japan is extremely strict! pls keep this in mind if you choose to write canonverse fic.
  • in terms of aus, i love future fic, canon divergence, and really most kinds of real world setting aus. i'm extra weak to spies & assassins if that's your thing. fantasy aus are best avoided; scifi aus are good if your worldbuilding is consistent.
  • things to avoid: character death, infidelity, abuse, rape, incest, large age gaps, abuse of authority, adult/minor relationships (seriously, no teacher-student relationships, please), dubcon, a/b/o, sex pollen, etc.
  • it's fine if you want to write porn, but i'd prefer it not be the focus of the piece, and pls do age the characters up appropriately. also, pls don't spring anything too exotic on me without checking first.
  • i don't get along with first person pov; second is fine if you're familiar/confident with it; third is probably easiest/best.

i am eternally thirsty for this ship, so if my other requests are too tiny/niche for you, this is your best bet! pls be very mindful with your characterization of ryousuke, however; he's not a one-note sadist. he loves baseball, his family, and being right. he's got complex feelings and motivations, so please don't collapse him down into a caricature.

other than that, i'm always keen on the idea of extrapolating how their field synergy applies to other situations or other areas of their lives. canonverse & future fic is great for them and they are also probably my most au-friendly ship. i really enjoy crime aus for them, honestly.

things to avoid: i'm not keen on haruichi getting between them/ryousuke being afraid of losing kuramochi to him, etc.

i will take anything you give me for this ship, honestly. exploration of back story, college future fic, au where they did get to form a battery, whatever. if you're up to date with the manga, the aftermath of of the events in the last epilogue to part 1 would be fine too, or some deviation from that particular bit of canon if that's more your speed. zaizen is a pretty obscure character but there's so much to mine with him and chris — their injuries and how they've affected pretty much all parts of their lives, exactly how much of a monster zaizen was in middle school for jun to still be bitter about it as a high school senior, zaizen's bitterness vs chris's determination, etc.

THERE IS SO LITTLE CHRISTANBA. honestly, chris exhibits a sort of camadarie with tanba that he doesn't show to literally anyone else, and tanba's longing to form a battery with him is clearly expressed multiple times. i love the idea of them going to college together or otherwise getting to play together in the future.

i'm not sure when i got so invested in this ship tbh but here i am. for these two i really just want future fic, playing as pros either together or against one another. their little dugout talk in S2E26 basically pressed all my ship feelings buttons at once with how sincere and unguarded mei was with masa there, so more of that side of their relationship would be lovely.

cries i honestly don't think i've seen any fic at all for this ship? i love that they're music friends, that shirasu is literally nicknamed "mr. reliable." basically i saw this art of them recently and i'm still dying, i love the body language. the way shirasu's face is turned away, the way nori is looking at him, ugh. i love the idea of nori having a bedrock he can rely on ig, and maybe sort of that tenuous space of not knowing if romantic feelings are returned/welcome/etc.

if you have any questions, anon is enabled both on this journal and on my tumblr!
