Hello writer! I am so excited to see the thing you write! I'm pretty easy to please, and I am so hard up for all the things that I will consume the fic as soon as it's in my vicinity. Basically, I want your words on my desk now, please.

Some general likes include friends-to-lovers, enemies-to-lovers, roadtrips, raising kids together, post-apocalyptic rebuilding, dom/sub relationships, possessive behavior, magical realisim, canon divergence,

General dislikes include scat/watersports, death of main characters, werewolves, genderswap, career-ending injuries, infidelity.

Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin

My OTP by far. I love them so much. Geno is my forever girl. I love that he's still so resilient after everything he's been through, still so caring and open to literal strangers when he has no real reason to be. Hes goofy and willing to adopt stray cats and pay people's medical bills and be a Good Guy whenever the opportunity presents itself. And Sid, who has also been through so much strife, but still gives his everything to the sport, who could be cocky about his skill, but chooses to be humble and use his talent to bolster his team. I love seeing Sid broken down to his components. He's not just talent. He works hard, at everything he does and still finds ways to improve, and that's a character trait that speaks volumes. I'm not going to lie, the fic I want most in the world is the fic set during the first Canada/Soviet Union games. There was a show about those games told from the POV of the Russian team, and it was gut wrenching. I want Geno in the Russian housing, forced to be the Best For His Country and out through the terrible conditions and Sid, the heart of the game, who is displeased with his team's brutal gameplay against the team that can really match them in skill, if only they'd actually play the game right. If you're not down with researching Soviet Russia, I am also here for all the baby raising stories, all the overcoming language/culture barriers stories, all the old married stories. I've read them pining a billion times. If they're not Soviet versus Canada, I want them already living their happily ever after. They deserve it. You know what else I'm here for? Sid domming the hell out of Geno. Do I love a good story where Sid is ~overcome with his ~need for all the dick? Yes, yes I do. But he's actually really good at knowing what people need, and I would love the story about how he takes care of Geno, how he hurts him to love him and how he puts him back together. Geno's got a lot of emotional baggage. Sid can help him sort it.

Evgeni Malkin/Marc-Andre Flurey

We have already established that Geno is my  boy. But Flower is tiny and and precious and so damn good-natured that I can't help but love him as well. What I really, really want? Rookies in love, because I always want rookies in love. Flower, struggling to stay in the show, Geno, struggling with his place on the team. Them bonding over English as a second language, them bonding over culture shock, them pranking each other and laughing together and becoming confidant in their own bodies and own game. I'd love the exploration of their cultures. We see a lot of ham-fisted Russian culture shoved into fic, some relevant some not, but French Canadians are also an entirely different culture than other Canadians. I'd love homesick Flower teaching Geno about the way things are at home, would love to see him teaching Geno Quebecios and laughing about it when Geno realises that the French Flower's taught him isn't the French that's used all around the world. Geno, who wears his heart on his sleeve at all times, being there and understanding Flower's moments of sadness when he's let the team down. Geno gets angry, Flower gets sad, and together they manage to find a way to cope. Tl;Dr version: Flower and Geno are special cupcakes and I want them to teach each other about their own special cupcake pan. Or something. (A note about Vero, who is beautiful and clearly the better half in this relationship: unless there is something she knows and approves and is part of, I'd rather her not be involved. If you're down with tiny Vero being like, 'yes, hit that and report back' I am as well. But I'd rather her written out if not. Infidelity is not my jam.)

Jeff Skinner/Eric Staal

Jeff Skinner: tiny ice dancer. He's precious and adorable. And I love the Staals as an entity. How did all the children end up in the NHL? Magic. Jordy is a personal favorite to show up and be a menace, if that's info you need. I really, really love the dynamic between the two of them. Eric, so used to being an older brother and a Captain (shut up, he's still the Cap) that he maybe misses the cues Jeff's sending his way, and Jeff, a fucking figure skater that laughs about everything and works hard to keep his place. My favorite thing for these two? Step-dad Jeff. Oh my God, give me all the things about Jeff learning how to raise a child, all the things about him and child ~bonding and Eric being weak to it. Give me Eric having age angst and Jeff not caring. Give me the fic where Eric's worried that his multiple children will scare Jeff off, and Jeff is willing to just let the kids pile on top of him and love them. You don't have to give me kid fic for this, but I really want kid fic for this.

After all that, the Tl:Dr version is: gimme gimme gimme, I want all your words.
