Dear Rare Ship Swap Writer

Dear Rare Ship Swap Writer,

Thank you for writing a story for me. The optional details are optional. I've just tried to give you some ideas of what I might like to see, but if none of them are your thing feel free to disregard them. I am sure I will love anything you write with the pairing(s) I've requested, after all, they're rare and there should be more fic with those pairings in.

I'd rather no other pairings were included - the ones not listed I either don't ship or are big pairings that you see a lot and I'd prefer the fic be about whichever rare pairing you're writing.

What I like:
- Stories that explore the relationships between characters
- Stories that explore characters
- Scenes/fic that is like it could be (part of) an episode
- UST (you can't go wrong with a bit of UST)
- One kiss or one touch being as sexy as a whole sex scene

What I dislike:
- Sex scenes, so nothing over PG-13 please
- British people using Americanisms and American people using Briticisms
- Crack - unless it's aliens made them do it, which I love, but having read so much of it I'd prefer a different take on it (eg what it is aliens made them do or finding a way round not doing it)
- Pet names
- Cheating/adultery
- Shipping involving the Doctor, or anyone having romantic feelings for him (except for Martha) or him having romantic feelings for anyone

Below are my prompts:

Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Aral Vorkosigan/Cordelia Naismith
I'd love to see more about Cordelia getting used to Barrayar and she and Aral being married. We don't see a lot during this time - was it hard for them both or easier because they had each other or both?
Simon Illyan/Alys Vorpatril
This is an interesting pairing that felt like it came out of nowhere and yet made sense. I like that Alys looks after Simon. I wonder if he lets her tell him what to do? I'd like something that shows how much she needs him or him looking after her or how they interact with other people on Barrayar. Or how Ivan deals with their relationship, or how Simon deals with Ivan as his mother's boyfriend.

Blake's 7
Dayna Mellanby/Del Tarrant
Please nothing about the whole potential body swap thing, there's plenty of fic with that in. But it would be interesting to see how the crew would react to these two in a relationship. Or would they keep it a secret? How would it affect everything else they do? What sort of relationship would it be? Basically I have no preconceptions about this ship, I'll take pretty much anything.
Kerr Avon/Servalan
Funnily enough, I can't see this pair being a happy after ever couple. But I do like that they never say anything they really mean and everything they do is in order to get something. So I'd like something that shows that - basically something along the lines of their typical interactions.

Doctor Who (1963)
Ben Jackson/Polly Wright
This is a pairing I've only recently discovered so I'd like pretty much anything. I've come across the idea that he was in love with her but it could never work in a Big Finish short story and also the idea that they're married in a Big Finish audio, both ideas I like. It might be interesting to explore the class difference between them or the experiences they shared on the TARDIS that no one else can ever understand.
Ian Chesterton/Barbara Wright
I like the idea that these two aren't particularly lovey-dovey, they just get on with it. I'd love something set after they leave the Doctor. Perhaps they live perfectly normal lives, perhaps they carry on having adventures and/or seeing aliens. I'm equally happy with something set while they're travelling with the Doctor if you'd prefer that.
Jo Grant/Cliff Jones
I like that Jo made her mind up so quickly that this was the man she was going to marry and then it lasted. I also love the idea that they went on to have all sorts of adventures. So I'd like something happy and adventury showing how well they get on and work together and know each other. But at least at first she must have missed her old life and the Doctor, so although she made the right decision to get married and leave, I'd like something that shows some of this. Or perhaps her meeting Mike Yates sometime later, given what he did in Invasion of the Dinosaurs, and/or the idea that he had feelings for her that she didn't return.
Martha Jones/Harry Sullivan
I don't mind if you have these two meeting in the present day or some time travel where they meeting Harry's past. I'd rather not have something set during The Year That Never Was because I've read quite a bit of that. But I also don't mind whether you have them meeting or having known each other for a while. With this pairing I like the idea that Martha challenges Harry's old-fashioned gentlemanly ways, but they don't annoy her the same way they do Sarah.
Sarah Jane Smith/Harry Sullivan
I like the idea that Sarah/Harry is a doomed pairing - they're never going to be like normal couples. I love angst surrounding one of them being in love, but the other not feeling the same way back. But if you can make a case for them living happily ever after I'd equally like to see that. I really love the banter between them, so if you can get some of that in there I'm pretty much guaranteed to love whatever you write.

Press Gang
Lynda Day/Spike Thomson
This ship is all about the banter. I particularly like them before they got together when it was all banter and flirting. But I also like them when she tries to schedule their relationship the same as she does the newsroom and when he can persuade her to do things she might not otherwise (eg take a day off).
Kelly (Press Gang)/Kenny Phillips
Kenny falling in love with a wrong number is just so Kenny. I'm not quite sure how you'd write this ship but I'd love to see more of them together, whether it's more talking on the phone or an AU where they manage to meet up and recognise each other.
Sam Black/Kenny Phillips
I love the way Sam flirts with Kenny and he knows it's no more than flirting. I like that he's not like any of the other boys she's been out with, if her stories are true. There's not a lot of fic with this ship in so basically I'll like anything.

Stargate Atlantis
Carson Beckett/Laura Cadman
I wish we'd seen more of this ship in the show. They had such an interesting start. I'd like to see more of how their relationship worked. Carson's quite sweet, but is used to being the doctor in charge and Laura's a soldier so I wonder who was in charge in their relationship. And how much did Rodney come up?
Jack O'Neill/Elizabeth Weir
I can't see this being a pairing of hearts and flowers and happy ever after - the living in different galaxies part doesn't help. So I'm happy with some convenient companionship and more, or an actual relationship. I'm also happy with adventure and UST. You pretty much can't go wrong with this pairing.
Sam Carter/John Sheppard
This pairing has a lot of similarities, which is what appeals to me. Given that they were in charge of Atlantis, how far could they go? Could they have started some sort of relationship before Sam was in charge or carried it on after?
Steven Caldwell/Elizabeth Weir
They had a lot of disagreements, but they also had a lot in common. I wonder if they both got lonely and they were convenient or were there deeper feelings there? What did they do during the times when the Daedalus wasn't at Atlantis?

Stargate SG-1
Jack O'Neill/Elizabeth Weir
I can't see this being a pairing of hearts and flowers and happy ever after - the living in different galaxies part doesn't help. So I'm happy with some convenient companionship and more, or an actual relationship. I'm also happy with adventure and UST. You pretty much can't go wrong with this pairing.
Sam Carter/Cameron Mitchell
These two are fun together. So I'd like to see something fun and happy. Maybe between missions, on a mission, after Sam got back from Atlantis or when she's on Earth between missions on the Hammond.
Sam Carter/John Sheppard
This pairing has a lot of similarities, which is what appeals to me. Given that they were in charge of Atlantis, how far could they go? Could they have started some sort of relationship before Sam was in charge or carried it on after? There's so many possibilities here.
Sam Carter/Jonas Quinn
I like that they're both kind of sciency and think similarly, but Jonas is lot more innocent about the world (ie Earth). He adds excitement and fun to Sam's ordinary life. So I'd like something happy and fun. Maybe one or both of them showing each other something new.
Sam Carter/Pete Shanahan
Sam deserves a happy ending, especially where men are concerned, after her luck, and Pete was it. I'd like to see something about them meeting or their dates or an AU where they never break up. Although I ship Sam/Jack I'd rather no mention of Jack beyond he and Sam being friends.
Jack O'Neill/Sara O'Neill
Given the manner of their break-up I'd love to see something that deals with any lingering feelings on either of their parts. Maybe something set after Cold Lazarus or when one of them finds out the other has a boyfriend/girlfriend. Do they see each other on Charlie's birthday or the anniversary of his death?
